hat then is !he basis of the pres
ent American feeling? It is based on
three thoughts. (1.). This century of
dispute has been preparing us for the
feeling of the present. ('.'.) The two
peoples are of a different race. It is
Hi Anglo-Saxon against the Celt. (3.)
These feelings have lxjen intensified
by the terrible disaster to the M.ninc.
America now says to Spain: "You
hnve abused your privilleges and those
privileges shall Imj taken from you; de
part." Cuba is over one-half the size of Ne
braska with a most fertile soil of
which one tenth is cultivated; four
per cent arc forests, and much of the
territory is unexplored. In IM13 the
population of the Island was l,000,...i.
Today it is estimated from l.'.'.'iO.OOO to
1,000.000 inhabitants. In 1803 the Un
ited States imported from Cuba $78,-
000,000 worth of goods and its exports
to Cuba amounted to $83,000,000. In
lsoo we sent to Cuba $7,000,000 worth
of goods and lmuglit $10,000,000 worth
of goods a decrease of one-half that
of pn'vious years and this year the
trnile will not be one-tenth of Hint of
five years ago.
We are not going to Cuba to avenue
these losses in trade but these losses

We now come to the present prob
lem, what sljall be done and who shnll
do that which is to be done. In. the

done but the American ieoplo havp
answered that this will not do. Again

HeajKirts but we wish to givo them bie
and een the recognition of Imlcpcu
dnce will not do. Then wo come to
the question of intervention and rec
ognition. Congress decided this morn
ing for intervention and the recogni

of Cuba. It was the people, ail not tli

A?irSKMKXTS AT PKXNSYIA AN1A.
At the University of Pennsyb.iuin,
one of Hie aesthetic amusement recent
ly indulged in was the annual sopho-mnrc-frcshman
bowl fight, in which
aliout 10 freshmen and 7." sophomores
took part. From the account given in
the Pcnnsylvaniai!, it must be i. truly
edif.ving c.iiertaiiiment, an of a most
elevating character. A few of the de
tails will show the startling ingenuity
oi such n coutcKt:
"A number of the freshmen started
for the bowl, while the others iried to
get the lMini man over the reiuv. They
succeeded in getting him about hirty
yards, but there, being pulled in every
direct inn, lie fainted, and had to be re
moved from the field.
"Meanwhile the fight raged fiercely
around the bowl. The freshuien" tac
tics were to pull a man off and sit on
him. All through, however, the soph
omores succeeded in keeping at least
a dozen men on the bowl. I'lie heat
was intense and the contestants who
after the first few minutes, became list
less trying to get a breath of cooler
air outside the fight around the bowl,.
were thrown forcibly back by the
spectators. The fight was not nea.'lv
as fierce as those which have preceded
it, owing, in a large measure, to the
crowd which closed in on the ineu."
If the thousand or more spe....tors
had kept out of the way, more bri'al
ity might have been indulged ri, and
the tight would probably huvo been
more, satisfactory. It is really too bad
they wer so inconsiderate of the pleas
ure of the students. The Lantern.
