I will eomiuoneo this loiter today as I havo some leisure time, anil keep add lug to it until tho mail leaves which will bo about next Saturday. To com mence with Holt, Mori and I nro nt ro bust as ever &m nt present Meet Is helping cook Hint is for today, and 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 is alloted bini. Wo do not drill more than fifty or sixty minutes all day be sides taking our turn at cooking and guarding, of which I havo holnnd.cnok ouco ana oeuu uir guard twice in thrco Ten davs ago wo oponed another invoieo of mon's underwear in Men's Underwear In WOOL FLEECE LINED GOODS. Thoso aro good values at 60c, but buying and selling for cash enables us to placo them on salo at SOo each. IJ Men's Underwear. Men's Cotton lleeco lined wear at 80o eaoh. Thoso are regular BOc goods. Children's Underwear. Children's Camel Hair Underwear, pants and i i vests, nt 6o for sizo 16 with a 8o riso per size. Fleeco Lined, sizo 16 at ICo with 5o rise per sizo. Full linno of Ladios Wear. Blankets. By early purchosing in largo quantities wo wore enabled to securo many oxtra values in blank ets. Wo place them on salo at extra vvlue' prhos. The result has been, as it is, a groat blanket trado. All cotton, full sizo bed, sizo guaranteed at 85o and upwards to $1.75. $2 00 to 88.00 for union. 13.25 to $8.00 for all wool. Wo call special attention to our 12-4 cotton blank ets, weight 8 lbs. por pair. Outings. Wo oponed tho season with 260 pieces of outing. Wo still bavo about fifty patterns left. Tho values in tbeso goods cannot bo duplicated anywhoro. "Winter "Wraps. That our stock of Ladles', Children's and Misses Cloaks and Jackets is par excollonco has been shown during the cloak carnival sale which wo held tho tlrst part of last week. With tho largo number of goods showu in tho city during tho salo an excellent opportunity was given for comparison. Tho result wns our selling oj many garments from such examination.

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 hor.su 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 mako money If ho has something to start with. Mull only comes three timcb n month hero. A follow by tho 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 el. Wo passed through a sugar can o field, '.hocano being four inches in di ameter at tho baso. After considornblo .-- )- -, 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.

WASHINGTON NOTES. extended, and ero long will bo coin- 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. Tho prosident greatly onjoyod bis western trip and has nothing butpraiso for tho hospitality, prosperity and tho patriotism of thoso with whom ho and if his backbone had noeded'an'y stiffening on tho Spanish question, which so farns appoarancos go it did not, tho sentiments ho hoard expressed would havo dono tho business. Thoso who accompanied him say that tho al most universal sontimont ovorywhoro thoy wont, among thoso of all political partios and of all Borts of mon, was in favor of our taking tho wholo Philip pine group. 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. will not have that lesson to learn, as ho is a graduate of Harvard university and thoroughly acquainted with Amer icans and American customs, official and private. i of , torial points of tho Uusslau railway. Tho Inilllo for the past eleven mouths was 1,010,835 passengers, and 1,800,118 tons of freight and Is rapidly increasing. The road is nlroady paying handsome dividends." V Another bureau ofllolnl Jnmos A, Dumunt, supervising inspector general of tho steamboat Inspection service- lias condemned tho civil sorvico rules ns applied to his ofllco, In tho most tin qualllled terms. Mr. Dumont in his minimi report to tho secrotary of tho treasury says tho placing of tho em ployes of his ofllco under tho civil sor vico has been a posltivo dotrimeut to the sorvico iu many ways, and ho gives numerous Instances to show Hint tho men who have been nppoihtcd, aftor troublesomo delays, havo boon Iosh, of lleient than those selected boforo thoso nppointmonts passed under tho civil service rulos. Ho says tho civil sorvico method koops tho steamboat Inspection service In n moro or loss crippled con dition uoarly nil tho tlmo. Tho political assessor is again with tho Washington ofllco holdors, asd thoy aro doing their work oponly. Thero is no law to Btop thorn. Tho law says that political contributions shall not bo solicited or roooivod by any office holder, nor in a publlo building.

Tho annual report of tho director ot the mint, on tho production of silver and gold by tho world during the cal endar year, 1807, has been submitted to tho secretary of tho treasury. It shows that the production of silver was tho greatest over known, the valuo being $240,780,300 although many of tho most productivo silver mines in tho United States wore not worked during that period. Tho valuo of the gold produced was slightly in excess of that ot silver, $237,604,800.
