It IB true that President McKlnley'i

No grander ovation was ever given an
American citizen than that accorded
Presldjut McKjnley on his arrival In
Omaha to participate In the national
peace Jublleo atl io Transmlss's Ippl JSx-
position. As an cvlileuOc of popular
enthusiasm and esteem among all

patriotic devotion to the chief executive
of the nation Is fraught with a signifi

ognition of the debt due to President Me-

dustrial exposition exemplifies not
only the magnificent achievements
of the pursuits of peace In de
veloping the untold resources of M.e .

which has been made from tno pail u
business depression and employment-

country when President McKIuley was
elected to the bright skies of commer

that now canopy the whole country.
In Joining In the peace Jubilee the people
ple not alone pay honor -President
McKlnlcy as the chief executive1 of'the
nation , but also render jicknowledgi
mcnts of the blessings they have en
joyed and are enjoying tinder his guid
ance of national affairs.
Omaha will never witness another
such demonstration as the ovation to
President McKlnley , because never
again will a similar occasion pre
sent. Never again will the nation bo In
position to celebrate at one and the
same time the culmination of the most
wonderful Industrial exposition and the
termination of war by renewed peace

Representative Dalzell of Pennsylva
nia Is to go to Porto Itlco , It is under
stood at the request of President McKIu
ley , to Investigate the situation in the
Ishtnd with a view to aiding the nUmhls
tratlon In securing the legislation d si cil
for Porto Ulco. While Mr. Dalzell has
been classed as an anti-expansionist , H
is said that now that the United States
has secured new territory ho will assist
the president In providing the legislator
necessary for Its government- Is
understood that Mr. Dalzell is predls
posqd. In favor of the English cb'lonla
system as the bust form of gover'ttmeni
for outlying territory. Ho Is reported as
having expressed opposition to giving
any of the new islands a form of gov

the American people.
But while this Question must be settlci
in accord with intelligent public Judg
ment In this country and with referenci
to what Is best for American Interests
It Is highly probable that It will be fount
somewhat troublesome. For instance , 1
is already announced that the Icadhn
politicians of Porto Ulco are very grcat'j
concerned about the future governmun
of the Island. While cheerfully accepting
of sovereignty fron
ing the transfer
Spain to the United States , these Port <
Ulco politicians do not want to be obllt

The address of President' ' McKlnley nt
the exposition Is a characteristically pa
triotic utterance. It expresses the senti
ments and the emotions of a true aim
earnest Americanism. Pride in the great
ness and power of the republic , n pro
found appreciation of our achievements
In war , a high sense of the responsibili
ties that rest upon the nation , admira
tion of the patriotism of the people and
of the valor of American soldiers and
sailors these find eloquent expression In
Mr. McKlnley's address , which In spirit
and In form Is worthy of the great and
The portion of the address which will
perhaps command greatest attention Is
that In which the president deprecates
any attempt to dim the splendor of the
achievements of "the heroes of the
trenches and the forecastle. " The vigor-
otts sentences of this part of the ad
dress , veiling a stinging and Just rebuke
to those who by detraction and by sow
ing seeds of dissatisfaction , have sought
to Impair the usefulness of the Ameri
can army and embarrass the govern
ment , should make a deep Impression
upon all fair-minded men. It Is too much
to expect , perhaps , that It will have any
effect upon those who , from personal or
political motives , have relentlessly as
sailed the conduct of the war. 'They are
not concerned about the consequences to
the army or to the government of their
course , so long as their selfish or par
tisan purpose Is subserved. It matters
not to them that the counsels of the
republic are darkened If they can pro
mote their personal gain or advance the
Interests of party. They arc indifferent
to the approving verdict of the world
upon our great achievements. They arc
deaf to the Invocation of patriotism.
The glory of uuparaUoled triumph , with
all Its assured benefits to humanity aud
civilization , they are willing to depre
ciate for tile attainment of sordid or
political ends. Upon these people the
vigorous utterances of the president limy
have no effect , but they will not.fail to
appeal to those whoso patriotism and
whose sense of Justice and fairness arc
not blunted'by disappointed selfishness
or the promptings of a. narrow partisan
President McKlnley Invokes patience ,
wisdom , sincerity of purpose aud un
shaken resolution to do right in con ;
sidering the qupstlons that confront the
nation. Ho recognizes the difficulties ol
the problems to be solved and 'declare *
that as in the past so now we > will dc

of the nation and recognizing no othoi

LONK of Life III Ilnttlc Small Ilcyonil
In the Spanish-American war the loss at
life In battle has been small almost beyond
precedent , when the proportions of the
triumph gained arc berne In mind. Un
doubtedly there have been many victims of
dleases contracted In Cuba and Porto nice
under conditions of exposure and hardship
inseperable from campaigns In tropical
regions during the rainy season. The suffer
ings of our soldiers from these causes have
been , however , Incomparably less than those
undergone by the French arnly sent to Sdn
Domingo under the consulate , and they
Jiavo also een less than those which the
Spanish troops themselves have bad to bear.
It would bo absurd , of course , to contend
that much ot the mortality Incurred In
camps on our own soil might not have been ,
avoided under an Ideally perfect system of
management. Unfortunately there has
never been an Ideally perfect system ot
management In camps. The number of
deathb fnmi dlsens'6' during o'ur civil war
wo mean' , of course , Id proportion to the
number of men under the colors was con
siderably larger than , we have witnessed
during the last flve months- The Germans
are supposed to have had In 1879 an ad
mirable commissariat and remarkably
effective arrangements for medical atlend-
nncc. Nevertheless , at one time , during , the
siege , of Metr , nearly one-half of the army
under Prince Frederick Charles Is known to
have been prostrated by illness , and the
official statistics show that the deaths of
soldiers from disease were more numerous
during the campaign of Franco In 1870-71
than they have been during our contest with
Spain , Ibo far greater slzo of the armies
engaged and the greater duration of the
conflict In the former case being , of course ,
taken Into the calculation. If we compare
the losses from disease experienced In the
camps on our own eoil during the last Qve
months with those suffered In the camps
around Washington while McClellan was
organizing the army which he led to the
peninsula , we shall again find the compari
son favorable to the recent contest. It has
never yet been found practicable to bar
disease out of camps , or to gtvo those who
unhappily contract It the care and comfort
which they would receive at homo or In a
well organized city hospital. Every man
who enlists as a soldier knows , or ought to
know , that what ho has most to fear Is not
death In battle , but the Insidious assault of
disease aggravated by privation and neglect.
It was this source of danger , and not the
peril Incident 'to the battlefield , which Gen
eral Sherman had In mind when he de
clared that "war Is hell. " It was. Indeed , to
bo expected that , in a suddenly created
army of moro than 200,000 volunteers , the
commissary , quartermaster and medical de
partments would all exhibit grave defects ,
yet , as wo have said , the percentage of
mortality from disease was not , In point of
fact , greater than was observed twenty-
seven years ago In the German army , al
though that was reputed a model In respect
of organization and equipment.

KCIIOHS OF TIII3 LATH AVAIL
Naval officers and civilians who beoanio
acquainted with Admiral Cervera during his
recent vacation In the United States ex
press pleasure at the news that ho has been
made a life senator of Spain and the coun
try echoes their sentiments. The venerable
.admiral was one of the few Spanish officers
In the war who conducted himself In a
straightforward , manly way , bravely ac
cepted the risks of battle and met the Ill-
fortune of war with courage and fortitude.
The unexpected kindness and consideration
shown to the captured crew of the Mcrrlmac
endeared him to all who ailmlro a manly
foo. It was feared the respect shown him
by Americans , coupled with the loss of his
fle.ct , would embitter his countrymen , but
nqno has been shown. Even the ruling po
litical leaders did not attempt to shift their
blunders on him , iprobably for the reason
that the admiral knew too much about the
Inner workings of the ruling machine that
would not be profltablo to make public. The
gallant old een'dog of Spain has the unique
distinction of belug one of the worst-\\hlrpd
admirals In naval history and at the same
tlmo a hero In two countries.
E. E. Kelly , a big Chicago telegraph op
erator , had charge of the wire from General
Greene's headquarters In camp to the
trenches at Manila. During the attack a
shell cut the wire behind the trenches.
Kelly seized the line outside the camp and
fan along the Una In the darkness under a
hall of bullets clear up to the trenches ,
where he found the break and repaired it.

The surgeons and nurses at St. Mary's
hospital In Philadelphia were unusually dis
tressed over the death a few days ago of
Private Henry J. Wind of Company D. Third
New York regiment. The hospital attaches
had taken an especial Interest In Wind's
case , and everything possible was done to
save him. The surgeons , after a consulta
tion , decided that his only chance of recov
ery lay In the performance of a delicate
surgical operation. The surgeons did their
work well , but the patient collapsed under
the knife. They carried him back to his
cot In the ward , and realized that ho had
but a few minutes to live. The eoUler , who
seemed to understand his own condition
fully , clutched one ot the doctors by the
sleeve and said : "Oh , Just pull mo
through , doctor ? my mother needs me. Sim
needs mo bad. " Ho fell bad : , breathing
stcrtorlbuslj- n nurse passed her sooth
ing hand over his hot brow. At that mo
ment the occupants of Iho room were elec-
rrlfled by Iho slrungcly appropriate sirninn
of a song that floated through the window
from the street. A quartet of young < nen
with exceptionally good voices were passing
the hospital , singing :
Just break the news to Another , she knows
how dear I love her ,
And , tell her not to wait for mo , for I'm
not lomliifi home ;
Just say there IH no other can takj the
place of mother ,
Then klaa hi > r tlinr. sweet lips for mo and
break the news to her ,
Almost at that very ruoment the sufferer
gasped and was dead. The singers passed
on down the street and the quiet in the
ward was .broken . by the low sobbing of the
nurse , There were tears , too , In the eyes
of the surgeons.
