OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER
TiiE president's formal declara
tion o war with Spain lets tli
the dogs of war loose for keeps.
IT only took a small American
fleet eighteen minutes by tin
watch to reduce the fortifications
of'the important city of Man tan-
' THE exports of agriculture pro
ducts in the eight months since
the Diugley law went into opera
tion are more than those of any
full year during the operations of
the Wilson law , despite the asser
tion of the free traders that the
' high tariff rates of the Dingley
law would destroy our foreign
markets for American products.
WITH gold flowing into the
United States at the rate of a mil
lion dollars a day ; with a total
gold circulation in the country of
1 T § 130,000,000 greater than it was
at the date of the Chicago conven
tion , with gold mines of the world
turning out more of the yellow
metal this year than ever before ,
the silver argument is not likely
to be a very impressive one , if of
fered in the coming campaign.
THE Republican leaders in Con
gress , under President McKinley's
administration , are preparing to
make the proposed new war loan ,
one to which every man who has
fifty dollars to invest , may sub
i scribe. The bonds are to ba issued
in sums of fifty dollars and upward ;
such facilities are to be given that
people who desire , may subscribe
through post offices , banks , sub-
treasuries , or by sending checks ,
post office orders , or registered let
ters , and if the subscriptions ex
ceed the amount of the bonds , as
is likely to be the case , the "scal
ing down" process will be applied
only to those whose bids are above
one thousand dollars in amount.
THE forty days which have
elapsed since the Spanish-Cuban
situation made war a probability ,
have been precious to the United
States Government in the matter
of preparation. The country has
has been for years notoriously un
prepared for war , and to have
rushed into war six weeks ago
without preparation would have
been criminal. President McKinley -
ley has shown great wisdom in
holding out against the demands
of politicians and sensationalists
for instant action , knowing , as he
did , how absolutely essential it waste
to have a reasonable amount of
time in which to prepare for war.
STEEL manufacturers of pro
tective America have just won a
big victory over those of free trade
England , and that , too , under the
British flag. The Australian Com
missioner of Railways , desiring to
relay portions of existing railway
lines with new steel rails , asked of
fers from manufacturers in various
parts of the world , and received
bids from Germany , England , and
the United States. When these
bids were opened , it was found
that those from the United States
were lower than those from Ger
many or England , and the con
tract , amounting to nearly half a
million dollars was awarded to one
of the American bidders , the Penn
sylvania Steel Company , its bid
being nearly $20,000 lower than
THE railroads have made re
duced rates for the Exposition.
