WILL IT BE WAR ?
The latest war news is that, the
Spanish government has asked
that Gen. Lee be recalled from
Havana, and that the United
States shall forbear to send pro
visions and supplies to the Buffer
ing Cuban non-combatants in war
vessels. President McKinley has
very properly declined to recall
Gen. Lee. He has also declined
to change the programme cf send
ing supplies as at first intended.
In the meantime Spain is becom
ing clamorous for war, and the
probabilities grow stronger day by
day and hour by hour that wa" will
soon raise his horrid head near
our Southern coast. Our govern
ment is rapidly accumulating war
material and supplies at the most
convenient point for use in Cuban
On Monday of this week a bill
appropriating fifty1 millions of dol
lars for the national defence, was
introduced in the United States
Senate. This will go through that
body and the lower house with a
rush. The following is the text ol
the bill :
"That there hereby be appro
priated, out of any money in the
treasury, not otherwise appropriat
ed, for the national defence and
for each and every purpose con
nected therewith, to be expended
at the discretion of the President,
and to remain available until June

Havana, March 5-"Send the
Maine away! For God's sake
send the Maine away!"
That was the solemn, earnest
warning of an elderly Spaniard
who called at the American
consulate general every day day
for a week before the disaster.
He had been in the habit of
visiting the consulate twice a
week for some time, but after
the Mi1 i nf arrived his visits became
more frequent. The week before
the explosion he went daily, fairly
[begging that the American
j battleship be sent away.
[ The consulate officials thought
he was crazy then ; now they are
hunting for him, as he has not
?been seen about the consulate
since the awful catastrophe.

On by one the sombre facts in

The inward twisted plates and

the convincing nail through all the
hundred-odd bits of material
evidence and clinches it.
Abraham Lincoln's "plain
people of the United States" may
not quite see the value as proof of
a loaded ten-inch powder case
removed from a magazine reported
to have exploded. They might still
halt'in forcing the presideut into
action fer reparation, even after
knowing that every movable or

destroy the Maine -is she has been
But when they now know that the
massive plates-splendid steel
have been forced and twisted and
bent toward and into the very
centre of the ship, they know the
Maine was struck from the outside.
Upon the mere intelligent in
spection of the pitable wreck above
water the spectator fairly shouts,
When divers report the peculiar
direction of the exploeive force in
the ship's inside, conviction grows
And when, finally, immense, ir
refutable physical evidence comes
to light of a tremendous blow at
a certain point, the proper cause
of all other noted effects, convic
tion becomes fixed.
And when they know that all
such tremendous forcing inward
was done under water they know
that somebody did it.
Who did it?
It is now admitted that it is not
even remotely likely that Cubans
were engaged in the atrocity. They
have not the incentive, nor th?
money, nor yet the immensely
powerful exploding force which
certainly was employed. No small
torpedo, even aided by a ton of
saluting powder in the reserve
magazine, reduced the Maine into
its present condition.
Indeed, of hundreds of rumors,
with persons willing to swear to
them only one by any possibility
implicated the Cubans.
Although one New York daily
makes a great Sensation over this
on pure hearsay, a careful
investigation, aided by the original
documents in the case-which
were in The World's possession
before even the board of inquiry
heard any witness-indicates that
there is nothing in it but talk.
Among the many stories of
heroism which are being told of1
the Maine'8rjQen this is the latest:
A marine sentry on the poop
had a hundred cartrdges ia his
belt, but had orders not to load
his rifle unless commanded.
When the awful roar of the
explosion came he loaded his
rifle, then asked for orders. He
thought the Maine was attacked.
Another splendid soldier, Marine
Officer Catlin, has that rifle and

seems in fact a fit companion in
helplessness of the sunken Maine.

classes judge America's naval force

The populace here hates
Americans. It is made up of
people who are densely ignorant,
intensely prejudice and swayed by
the naval contrast now shown in
the bay by the Vizcaya, and which
contrast will be heightened when
the Spanish warship Almirante

people may be expected to do
The big black massive Spanish
cruiser Vizcaya set Havana wild
by her arrival. For two hours
before she got in, from the time of
her first telescopic signalling,
spurts of detonating rockets flew
from the water front. When her
black snout poked about the base
of gloomy Morro, the volley became
a battle crash of guns.
Small boats carpeted the harbor,
lounghes flew and big ferry boats
jammed with people and milifory
bands ploughed through the small
fry. Fireworks came from the
hundreds of boats until the bay
seemed a sheet of fire.
It was just dusk when the big
cruiser moored and her searchlights
played over the mass of boats
crammed with cheering Spaniards.
It was their day. The docks and
quays for miles were packed.

In that excellent book, "The
Coming Kingdom." Dr. Wads
worth relates this incident in the
battle of Franklin :
"General H Dod was standing on
an eminence whence he could se?
the destructive fire poured into
his lines from a Federal fort
located in a locust gt ove. It
must be taken, though the odds
were great. Calling a courier,
he said, "Go and present my
compliments to General Cheat
ham, and tell him that I
ask at his hands the fort in the
locust grove." The courier dashed
away, but returned quickly, saying,
"General Hood, General Cheatham
cannot be found, and it is feared
that he has been killed."
The great soldier's heart was
bleeding, for his men were falling
"Go," he said, "present my
compliments to General Claiborne,
and tell him that I ask at his hands
the fort in the locust grove." The
courier quickly returned, saying,
"General Hood, General Claiborne
is dead on the field." The tears
fell from Hoods eyes as he saw
his rapidly thinning ranks under
the galling fire, for he loved his
brave fellows. Turning to his
courier he said, "Go, give my love
to General Cockrell and tell him
that 1 ask at his hands the fort in
the locust grove." Finding Cock
rell, the confier said, "General,
General Hood sends you his love
and asks at your hands the fort in
the locust grove."
Cockrell was the youngest briga
dier in the Confederate army, and
brave. Standing in his stirrups
and pointing toward the fort, he
cried, "First Missouri brigade,
attention! Charge!" Over the field
went the little baud, sweeping
all before them, and the Confed
erate flag floated over the fort.
Turning to his courier, he said,
"Go, give my love to General Hood,
and tell him that I present him
the fort in the locust grove."

What He Has to Say About the
Washington, March 2.-To the
correspondent of the New York
World here Gen. Longstreet, of
Georgia, has given the following
interview relative to the Maine
'disaster and the outcome:
''The United States could sum
mon 5,000,000 men into the field
in case of war with Spain.
"Our greatest difficulty,'? he con
tinued, '.would be to arm and
equip them. I am receiving more
letters every day from members
of my old corps who hope to be
able to enlist than I can answer
in a month. In ninety days, even
in our presen* incomplete condi
tion for war, we would be on suffi
cient war footing to deal with
"Why, Napoleon, within three
months after his disastrous retreat
from Moscow, raised, armed and
equipped another army equally as
powerful. With far greater re-J
sources and with the spirit of pa
triotism burning fai brighter than
in that particular period of
France's danger, we ought to do
equally well. In fact we ought
be able to eclipse that most mar
vellous feat of that most wonderful
"Should war be declared, the
first move of the United States
government would be to throw its
forces into our commercial cities
on the Atlantic coast to repeal an
attack of the enemy's warships.
For some time after the beginning
of hostilities the tug of war would
be between the navies of the
United States and Spain. OD the
sens we are about equally matched
so far as vessels and armament are
concerned. So soon as circum
stances would permit we would
throw a certain portion of our
forces into Cuba. Tue question of
[transportation of men need not
concern us very much, for, with
the present spirit existing among
our people, we would reach the
island. We would get our soldiers
there if the men had to swim.
"As to leaders, let no one have
fear that we would lack military
talent. The graduates of our mili
tary schools have had far better
advantages than had Grant, Lee,
Jackson, Sherman or Sheridau.
We have a right to expect from the
younger generation of officers men
even more brilliant than they
"As to the fighting qualities of
the Spaniard, we will do well not
to underrate them. I have uiver
met any mea bearing Spanish
blood in the field more seriously
than the Mexican 'greasers.' In
our war with Mexico, in which I
took part, we found that the Mexi
cans were good enough fighters.
What they lacked was leadership.
"Spain has no great military
leaders, but the war may develop
them. Napoleon used to eay that
he could make soldiers but he
could not make generals. Spain
has never been prolific of great
military leaders. Nevertheless the
Spaniards possess the martial
spirit. It is safe to predict that
after we got fairly started the war
would be a question of a few weeks
and that the navies of the two
countries would bear the brunt of
the contest for supremacy.
"Now, while I deprecate war and
have every reason to believe that
through the firmness, good judg
ment and calm temperament of
the president, war with Spain will
be averted, I stand ready to offer
my services in case they are need
"I have never offered my ser
vices before. Had I done so it
would have only tended to increase
thf excitement already pervading
the country. I can still advise. I
am still able to mount a horse. I
have no doubt all the surviving
officers of the Confederacy are ac
tuated by a similar spirit."

were issued. Holloway says he
found three wagon loads of goodi
belonging to Hipp in the posses

in the residence of James A.

good reputation. When the names

as Santa Barbara, Cal.
2nd.-Johnston is a moral community with few allurements to vice. No bar
rooms or vicious company to degrade the students.
3rd.-The Superintendents conduct two boarding halls-Pickens Hall for
young men and Rebecca Motte Hall for young ladies. In these Halls the
students are under restrictions and give their undivided time to their
tth.-The Institute ls conducted on a Military basis. Boys are permitted, but
not required, to wear uniforms. This uniform is cheap, handsome and
durable. Students are taught to obey, as one can never rule well until
he first learns to obey well.
5th.-Our course of study is thorough, practical and progressive. We flt stu?
dents for life, as College Diplomas are issued to those who deserve them.
6th.-We have Special Departments offering superior instructions in Book
keeping, Painting and Music. Call and see the character of work done.
Our rooms are open to inspection.
7th.-We have a big school. There is something stimulatingand inspiringabout
large schools, because children learn not only from books but by ab
8th.-We have eleven teachers, S. M. Martin. John Lake, A. J. Reamy, C. C.
Herbert, Miss A. S. Arnold, Miss Sophie Swearingen, Mrs. L. C.Latimer,
Miss Sue Sloan, Mrs. S. S. Cobb, Mrs. J. H. White, Mrs. A. J. Reamy. We
will add more if necessary.
9th._Our behool is un?ler Christian influence, but strictly unsectarian. No
narrow denominational lines are drawn.
10th.-We are giving the best possible education at the least possible cost.
The Institute is the school for the people. Board and tuition from $10
to $12 per month, according to grade. Provisions taken in payment of
board. Students received at any time. For further information address
