RED CLOUD, NEBRASKA. NOV. 4. 1898.
Nosurptlso was felt in Washington
ntllin se,ml-ollloial announcement that
tlid U. S, would demand nil of thu
Philippine Islands. It hns brou foil

President Mi Ktnlry Murird upon II. at
western trip, noithor ho nor any mem
ber of his cnbinot had mado up their
minds that wo should tako the, Philip
pines, nnd nt least ono of them See
ivlary Gage was opposed to our tnk.
lug nny of the Islands, but when they
roUirned to Washington, they had nil
about mado up thoir minds that public
opinion wns so strongly in fnvor of
American ownership of the entire
Philippine, group, us the oulylopioal
crowning of Dewey's grbnt victory In
Manila bay, that no other policy would
do.' What thoy heard later nt Philadel
phia, clinched that opinion, nnd our
ponco commissioners at Paris woro ac
cordingly instructed to mako the- de
mand. So much for tho adoption of
tho, policy. .
Whllodt is certain that the policy of
American ownership ol tho Philippines
will bo popular, it remains to bo ascer
tained' whether tho mothed pf obtain
ing that ownership will meet with such
genotnl approval. It must bo under
stood to .start with that no official an
nouncement haB been mado concerning
that method, but that enough has boon
said by thoso who ought torkuow to
causo it to bo believed the consent of
Spain will bo obtained either by a di
rect payment of money to Spain, or by
the assumption of about 910,000,000
of Spanish bonds, issued for improve
ment in tho Philippines. At first glance
thero will naturally bo opposition to
tho U. Si paying $40,000,000 or" any
othor sum, for undisputed possession
of torrltdry, 'which has already btcu
conquered by forco pf arms. But
many will doubtless accept tho argu
ment that the Philippine bonds, which
were not, as woro tho Cuban bonds,
issued to mnku war against tho natives
of thu islands, but for purposes of pub
lic Improvement, should bo considered
a lien oh tho island, regardless of
ownership, nnd that, it would bo, an in
justice, discreditable to n great country
like tho U. S. to take tho islands from
Spain nud leave that country to pay in
debtedness incurred for public im
provement! on them. The1 question is
likely to bo much discussed, as soon as
it bocomos absolutely certain upon
what terms wo aro to acqulro tho
At tho Headquarters of tho republi
can and ilemocratiq congressional com
mittees in Washington, the claims nro
about equn,l ns to which party will
elect a majority ot tho next house, but
the opinion outsldo is that tho republi
cans will retain control of tbo houso by
a reduced majority. Sotuo democrats
say that thoy would prefer that tho
houso would remain republican, bo
cnuso if their party carried it, thov
would havo to share in tho responsibi
lity of tbo administration, in inau
gurating tho oxperimont of n colonial
polloy, or tako tho responsibility of
hampering that policy, nud that thoy
would prefer doing ueithor tho next
two years. If that sentiment exists to
any extent among tho voters of tho
party, thero Is no doubt of tho result
of tho election.
Among tbo noted officers now in
Washington, are Gens. Miles, Wheoler,
Loo, and Lawon, of tho army, and
Capt. Robloy D. Evans, and Lieut. Hob
son of tho navy. Tho latter officer is
hero to report to a board of tho chiefs
of bureaus of tho navy department, on
his work on tho wrecked Spanish ships,
This board will decido whothor tbo
work shall bo continued. Hobson's
confidence in success in raising tho
ships is not shared by all tbo naval
officials. But if publio sentiment is
consulted, thoy will not stop Hobson's
work, on nccount of its cost, if thoro is
nny certainty of his succeeding, in sav
ing tbo ships. Thoso ships would, in
tho oyos of most pooplo, be worth moro
than now ones would cost, its object
lessons in tho patriotism, bravery ond
markmanship of thu American sailors,
and if they can ho saved, neither cost
nor jialously of Hobson should bo
allowed to stand in tho wav.
A rather curious request has been
mado of the uavy department by tho
Aomo Wrecking company of San Fran
cisco. This company wnnts to raise
tho battleship Maine, and bring her to
tho U. S., claiming to hnvo a method by
which tho work can bn accomplished,
and inks nothing mote of tho govern
ntcu' than permission to do the' work
nt its own expense. The company
states in Its request thai if the govei n
mont wishes tho ship nfter it has been
brought safo to somo U. S. harbor, that
it will not ask moro than the usual sal
vago payment through condemnation
proceedings. It is not supposod that
tho goVorumont would euro to buy tho
wroek. In fact, tho real object of tho
company Is to raiso tbo Maino in order
thatsho may bo exhibited In this coun
try, although nothing of tho kind Is
said in its letter to tho navy depart
ment. According to tho request of tho
company, it Intonds to blow tho mud
from under tho wreck, with streams of
water under high prossuro, nnd thon
pass chaius undor and attach thorn to
framework on each side, connected
with a system of stool air-tight barrels.
The gradual winding up of thoso chains
iscoupted upon to raiso tho wreck.
The Best Plaster.
A piece of flannel dampened with
Chamberlain's Pain Balm and bound
on to the affected parts is superior to
any plaster. When troubled with a
pain in the chest or side, or a lamo
hack, give it a trial. You nro certain
to be moro than pleasod with tho
prompt relief which it affords. Pain
Balm is also a certain euro for rheuma
