THURSDAY, A Pit iL 28. 1S0S. I
_ Senor Castelar, the great Republi?
can leader of Spain, is booked for a
speech in the Spanish Cortes. In
giving a brief forecast of what the
oration will contain a Madrid dispatch
has this to say:
"Senor Castelar's speech will bo n
panegyric of Spain's past greatness. It
will lament the 'sudden conversion of
the United States into provokers of
an unjust war.' and will express keen
disappointment at the United Stales
Tetroceiling into the barbarism of
?war.' Continuing. Senor Castelar will
predict that the 'quarrel between the
young ami unwarllke nation nml the
old and fighting race in lite world will
result in the traditional heroism of
Spain indicting severe chastisement
on the prestige and material interests
of the big democratic republic, whose
existence and prosperity is due tu
Spanish discovery anil support when
America cast off the yoke of England."
Spain really has a past, but instead
of being one that deserves a panegyric
It should arouse the indignation and
contempt of all just and honorable
men. There have been Spaniards as
brave and fearless as men could pos?
sibly be: men who have carved their
names high on the scroll of undying
fame: but taken as a nation it would
be impossible to find a blacker ami
bloodier page in the history of the
world than the one which records the
deeds of the Spanish government.
Spain has a past, but it seems to us
that her loyal sons would endeavor
to hide it rather than to etil! the at?
tention of the world to what inn only
be considered as oppressive and tyran-.
So far as the young and unwarlike
character of the American nation is
concerned it is only necessary to call
Senor Castelar's attention to a little
history. If he will go back into the
past he will discover that General
Winfield Scott, with ten thousand of
those "unwarllke" Americans stormed
Chepultapec. one of the most strongly
fortified places In the world, and hurl?
ed from their position thirty thousand
Mexicans. If he will go a little furthei
back Into history he will make the im?
portant discovery that these Mexicans
were direct descendants of tin- "old
and fighting race of the world." If
the necessity arisi-s there can In- no
doubt that there an- at least 5,000,000
more Americans wie, stand ready to
give as good an account of themselves
as did the handful under Scott.
I; It is Indeed fortunate that Spain lias
a past. A careful inventory of her .is
sets fail to disclose the fact that she
I has anything else on tin- balance side
of the ledger.
A number of Cretans :ue anxious to
enlist in the United States army to
fight against Spain. Aside from-the"
fact that Uncie Sam needs no assist?
ance in this little matter, it might not
be out of place to remark, in view of
certain incidents connected with the
'. Graeco-Turkish war, that our "living

Let US hope that Hie question has
