just now Hob is sleeping on a bench
and I nm writing beside him in tho
second storj of tho gruud aland of tho
fnirgroni.ds in which wo aro at present
camping. In front of mo lies Camp
Otis, our camp, composed of 100 mon
under Captain HolUcrnmn. Captain
lloldcrman was formerly county super
intendent of York county for eight
i vears and at present his sister is run
ning for llio same ofllco. Ho lives at
York, Nebraska. In tho noxtstrcoton
tho north is tho second company of tho
Nebrnska recruits comprising about 00
men of which Hob is one. They aro
under Captain Wilson formerly a drug
gist of Lincoln. His men woro mus
tered in at Hastings, Beatrice aud Lin
coln. Iu the next street to tho north
is the third company of about 104 men
undor Captain Killlaur from Columbus
who was formerly a county judge, law
yer and editor. Ho has tho "name of
having tho host drilled company of tho
wholo camp, ours being second, but
Killian is a hard drill master and drills
his men every minuto of tho tlmo that

than fifty or sixty minutes all day be

weeks so you can seo what wo have to
do. In tho next street north of Capt.
Killian are two streots of Colorado re
cruits of 180 men and on tho north of
that lios a level meadow of 80 acres
whtro 8000 men drill every day. Just
south of us in tho next thrco streotB are
820 Pennsylvania recuits undor Colonol
Barnot of Pennsylvania. South ot
thorn aro 800 regulars for tho 18th
regulars. Thoso compriso Camp Otis.
Just beyond is Camp McKlnloy com
prising about 1800 hundred men from
New York. Just boyond their camp
looms up Diamond Point, a volcano
now dormant, towering 000 foot high
and on the peak floats Old Glory plant
ed thero by the New York boys. To
our left is stationed a company of cav
alry which are used as mounted or-
dorlys and patrolmen guarding planta
tions. I bad a chanco to be a mount
ed orderly but did not take it.
If you wore to go from hero to Hono
lulu Ave miles northwest you would
pass out of tho gate and pass up the
road on both sides of which aro trees,
dates, palm, pino, big bananas and tho
famous Banyon treo, a native of India
with roots running down to tho ground
from tho limbs ton feet high, somo of
tho trees covering one-fourth of an
aero. You would also soothe beauti
ful mansions of the Americans sur
rounded by lawns, tropical flowers and
fountains. Their Chinese help livo in
houses built of palm loaves woven to
gether, tho loaves being ten or twolvo
fcot high. Tho Ohincso and Japaneso
hero aro the samo as tho negto in tho
south, doing all tho hard work for al
most nothing and living on rico. Tho
natives of tho island aro a lazy sot of
peoplo, caring only for a full stomnch
and sleeping whore night overtakes
thorn, but somo ot thorn livo in nulo
little huts with a wholo in tho side for
a door or window, sleeping, eating and
sitting bn tho lloor. But yet tho nntlvcs
are much quicker to learn than tho
Chlneso. To turn to the subject again
after you pass down tho road a quarter
of a milo you will pass through Kapiou
la Park which has nrtlllclal lakes run
ning in all directions with lawns and
troes. In tho center is an olovated
stage on which a band concert is hold
every Sunday tiftomoin. It is all in
strumental music of every imaginable
kind with about (ifty different Instru
ments. As you leave tho park the road
follows tho ocean ouo half mile with
tho waves dashing up ngniust tho rock
wall that lines the road. You puss by
several Chlneso stores and on between
banana plantations of thousands of
acres on one side and cocounut trees
towering 100 and 200 feet on tho other,
aud on by rico plantations and by tho
only stieot car lino on Iho Inland, being
drawn by mules. A two uimlimo
or wagon is u curiosity, uven tho heavy
dray wiignu is drawn by a Mnglo mule.
The uliolu town of Honolulu is com
pletely covered with flowers except a
small placo around tho wharves. The
principle amusements of the natives
nro swimming races, boat races, tree
climbing and lying in the shade.
Now wo come bad: to our camp.
Our dally program is to bo up at 5:-15,
nt 0 roll call, 0:16 breakfast, from 7 to
7:80 muscle exercise, 0:15 to 10.15 drill;
12 dinner; 8:15 to 1:45 drill; 5 parade,
twice a week; 10 lights out ami all In
bed. Saturday aud Sunday uu drill at
nil but Saturday morning wn have in
spection of arms. If out of the army
ono having a trado could command
good wages here, but for a common la
boror this is no place as the Chinamen
will work for twenty to thirty cents
per day and work hard at that, but It
Is n good placo for an American to

namo of Orr, from Iowa, and I started
out on an exploring expedition. Wo
passed through thorny woods, over
stono fences with which about every
little farm is surrounded, through
woods whore wo saw natives picking
up a bean that grows ou trees for tho
Americans to feed to tholr horses and
for which they get livo conts por bush

out on a road and woro surround
ed by armed guards woo were guard
ing a plantation. They askod ou
names and regiments and also if wo
had any arms ou us. I hud nono but
my friend had a dagger. They told
him that ho would havo to go with
them and for mo to get back to camp
as fast as possible. Mr. Orr was put in
tho guard homo 24 hours and as soon
as I got out of sight I wont in another
direction to tho beach whoro I took
my timo, picking shells and exploring
a cavo that is in Diamond Head and is
about twenty ynrds iu length, and ar
rived back in camp five hours after
leaving my friend. Tho steamship Son-
ator, tho ship which took tho First Ne
braska to Manila, has just arrived with
eightdlschargod and wounded soldlcrss
on board. She has been twenty day
out from Manila, having atruok a ty
phoon and disabled some of her ma
chinery. This is a fairyland, yet tho
beautiea of tho placo gets old when
thero is bo social amusemonts outside
of camp life. Scarcoly any of tho na
tives can apeak our languago, thoso
who can aro tho small boys. Wo know
nothing of tho outside world, as there
aro no cables hero and no newspapers
or oven books to read, yot we havo
plenty to eat and nlco shady places to
stay in. Our chief amusemonts aro a
daily swim In tho ocean, watching a
craok gamo of ball or foot ball and
sometimes joining in tho samo, Tho
rest of our timo is spent chiefly in
writing, boxing, drilling and singing.
Just now there is coming up tho road a
Chinaman with a polo on his shoulder
and on each end is a basket containing
fruit to peddle, a common sight horo.

Not onu cent for Spanish bonds or. nloted to Nluchwaiiir. ono of tho torri-
territory; millions for resumption
tlio war, if notion of Spain makes it
necessary. This is a statement in a
nutshell of the position of this govern
ment. Not n man in olllclal circles bo
lieves that Spain will bo foolish enough
tooulei itscomr Is&loncrs not to sign
tho treaty of p icj, unless thoy securo
somo money consideration, either as
payment for tho Philippines, or as
sumption of a p.iition of Spain's bond
ed lu.lehtcdiiojs, although such an out
come of tho negotiates at Paris ap
pears to be receiving serious consider
ation iu European cupitals. All of this
sort of thing is n part of tho giuno of
Spanish diplomacy, intended to nllect
the position of t liia government. As
such it is all absolutely wnstod. Should
the Spanish commissioners decliuo to
conclude tho treaty of poaco upon tho
terms submitted by tho United States,
the war would at once bo resumed, and
this government is far better lixol to
rush tho lighting than It wits tho day
tho protocol was signed, and is deter
mined to do it. Tho bugaboo of Euro
pean interforonco would not prevent
tho carrying of tho lighting into Spain
immediately, aud Spain would soon bo
compelled to accept terms of poaco far
moro humiliating than thoso it now has
an opportunity to accept.

Japan has changed its mlnlstor to
tho United States again. Japan kept
ono minister at Washington for a long
series of years, until ho became ono of
tho most popular diplomats in tho
corps, but since ho was recalled it ban
hardly allowed onj minister to remain
long enough to got acquainted with
the peoplo and customs. Howover,
tho now minister, Mr. Jutoro Kumora.

ho is a graduate of Harvard university
