Notwithstanding all the outward
manifestations of continental friend

on whom the Urltlsh can depend to
preserve a benevolent neutrality In
days of defeat.
According to late repot ts of tho
cause of Bailor's defeat, n ccnBor In
Uio London War Ofllco would bo more
to the point. Guiding the movements
of an nnny by telegraph haB always
proved bad business.

One after another llnlMi gcncials
Iiavo sacrificed their reputation on tho
altar of defeat nnd now Britain pre
pares to offer up Lords Itoberts and
Kitchener. Urltlsh gcncials havo not
paid such marked tribute to a scen
by nine republic since tho days of '70.

planation to tho effect that In figuring
out tho centuries, tho Popo Is right.
Kindly let It go at that and allow fu

Very likely some Intimate ft lend of
tho Dolo reglmo will now announce
that Col. Little is ono of those paid
anti-government agents engaged In
packing falsehoods to Washington.
Calling names at long range Is a role
In which tho Only .rtuous etrclo arc
star performers. Ilut let Haitwell
tnako tho charge before n committee
meeting and note what ndvnntagn he
gains by It.
The power to call upon tho Council
01 Stato to npproprlnto money In tho
present crisis rests solely with Presi
dent Dole. Let there bo no delny.
This Is n time for action, prompt, ener
getic action. Tho people are prepared
to support tho vigorous measuies
which money will forward and which
must bo set on foot It tho battle
against tho black plaguo Is to bo short,
sharp and decisive It Is to be hoped
that no time will bo lost In djsciibslng
-tho question of authority. Party and
politics have no placo In tho present
situation. Tho people nre better pro
pared to faco tho danger of possible
objections from Washington than they
aro to run the risks which delay will
force upon tho life of the community
to say nothing of business Interests.
BRITONS ON THEIR METTLE.
"Do or dlo" Is now the British pro
gram and the best ovldcnco of Boor
capabilities Is found In tho strenuous
measures Britain has to adopt to ob
tain reasonable assurance that It can
"do" tho enemy. Ordering out the re
serves and displacing Gen. Bullor in
command of tho South African forces
tells In short meter to what extent
Hrltlrti war lords overestimated their
ability. But tho true British grit with
which they swallow tho bitter pill and
proceed with prepratlons that would
worry a first cIobs power is Inspiring.
jEven with Lord Roberts and Kitchener
and 180,000 men in the field, tho posi
tion of Great Britain Is not a happy
one. Recruits to the .Boer ranks aro
not diminishing and during tho delay
now forced upon the attacking columns
the Boers havo all tho advantages for
recuperation and strengthening of
their defenses that accruo to an undo
featcd if not victorious enemy,
Moanwhllo continental enemies will
not bo asleep. Their friendship nnd
neutrality Is perfunctory and shallow.
Every advantago that can bo taken of
British reverses will bo Improved.
Prance and Russia stand ready to
strike tho moment they see reasou
ablo assurance of success In breaking
Urltlsh power. Their hopes for tho
futuro as well ns rcvengo for tho past
aro centered In bellttcllng or destroy
ing British prestige. A compaiatlvoly
Insignificant spark Is necessary to start
tho flame of Europenn war. God grant
tlmt the flnmo mny not be kindled
whatever tho outcomo In South Afilcn.
GUN "iFtAli LAWTON.
Gcneraf Law ton, Idolized, Invincible,
tho main sptlng of tho Philippine cam
paign as popularly measured, Is dead.
Lawton stood second only to Dewey In
popular esteem; no loss could, enrry
gi cater soirow to tho people who havo
followed the campaign against tho Fili
pinos. Other generals hao led their
troops with ('filial success, other olll
(crs have risen to prominence, only to
meet n etoss llio of criticism that has
been met with explanations for fall
uio to nctor excuses for apparent lack
of capacity Hut when Lawton took
tho field, when Lawton has been on
tho fighting line, the public has al
most luvaiiably quietly waited lesults
confident that If tho enemy could be
overcome Lawton would do It.
The secret of tho General's micci'iu
seems to have been his splendid, tool
headed courage and apparently utter
Indiffcicuio to personal preferment ns
a result of complete success In tho per
formance of duty. As a commanding
general Lawton showed his sound
belief In the old saying "of you want n
thing well done, do It yourself."
Whether chasing lnsui gents or
stinlghtculng out a civil government,
ho was always ready for action; lio
made the best of tho situation as It
was, not as It ought to be, and never
allowed petty Jealousies of nrmy poll-
tics to Intel fcro with tho prompt ful
filment of orders. Flo tended strictly
to business nnd expected others to fol
low tho same rule. A man of stilct
personal lntegilty, he was a type of
Amcrlcnn manhood that Is most need
ed among thoso who nro to do tho ac
tive work of establishing nnd carrying
on a beneficent rule In the new posses
sions. Lawton's work is ended, but
tho lessons of his life will not be
quickly forgotten by tho nrmy or the
peoplo who havo closely watched his
career during tho moro tecent difficul
ties the country has had to face.
GDRMAN PLAG IN SAMOA.
Washington, Dec. 21. The following
stntcment'is mado by tho German offi
"A press telegram of the 13th Inst.,
from Apia, via Auckland, reports that
th German Consul In Apia has solemn
ly proclaimed the pending annexation
of Upolu and Savall by Germany to n
number of Snmoan officials on board
tho German man-of-war, nnd that on
tho samo day he hoisted tho German
(lag on the Supiemo Court.
"Tnls report does not cover tho le-
ports iccdvcd In Beilln from tho Ger
man Consul in Apia and according to
tho Instructions which ho has received
from Berlin, It seems absolutely un
true. 'The Get man Consul has likewise.
wired on tho 13th Instant, but he sim
ply stntes that certain Tanu chiefs have
refused to pay the, head tax Imposed by
tno tnrco consuls, benco they bad been
ordered to leave tho districts by tho
thirteen chiefs. Tho tnrco consuls

Tho Stato Department has had no
incssago from our Consul at Apia to
confirm the reports of fresh trouble. In
Samoa and this fact is regarded as
sufficient to show that any slight dls-
turuanco thai may have occurred, has
en much exaggerated In the report.
Tho officials aro confident that what
ever troublo may occur will not bo
chargeablo to tho German offlclnls ns
the German Government Is oulto ns
anxious as our own that the pending
treaty providing for a permanent set
