Gen. Sharters detailed report of
the American casualties in \he
battle of Santiago has been re

is being prepared for publication.
The total number cf American,
casualties was 1,595. Recapitula
ten, the American losses were:
Killed, 23 officers and 208 enlist
ed men ; wounded, So officers and
1,203 men ; missing, 81 men. The
missing are supposed to be dead,
as so far as known the Spanish
forces took no prisoners.
The result of this war is sure to
be injurious to the couse of Roman
ism. Cuba is io be freed from the
Spanish yoke, and is to have
religions liberty. Spain is tobe
greatly weakened. It is likely
chat religious freedom will also
prevail in the Philippine Islands.
The developments of the war will
be likely fo open the eyes of some
American Catholics to the general
nature of Romanism. Surely
Spain is a fair sample of what
Romanism can do for a country,
for it ha3 had practically undisput
ed sway there for centuries, and
the people have been remarkably
submissive to the priests, Yet their
bull fights and their brutalities

They say that Joe Wheeler for
got himself at Santiago when the
Spaniards fired their deadly volleys
from the brush, and he spurred his
steed forward shouting, ,:Charge

Generai Leo that when hi3 hand
some blue uniform came and his

and said: "Put it.back, wife; let
it stay there a while till I can get
reconciled. I'm afraid I might
shoot at it ell of a sudden."
The boys in camp get up many a
joke, and they go the grand rounds,
and that reminds me of Pat Doolan,
a fresh Irishman, who was put on
picket and ordered to let no man
pass without the password. When
the officer came round to change
the guard Pat challenged him
with, "Halt, be Jasus, and give the
password." "Officer on the grand
rounds:" said the lieutenant.
"Grand rounds and be damned to

The boys say that down at Camp
Griffin, when a new recruit comes
in, the devilish fellows take him
off to drill him. "Young man,
you must remember the Maine, and
also remember that you are a
private. When you meet an officer
you must salute him and say, 'I
am your dog, sir,' and the officer
will wave his Land fmile and say,
I, know it,' and pass on.?' . They
haze the green ones as bad as col

There is many a wag around the
camr Ires and they spice the weary

not even toward the foe he has

if it is possible Lr us to like
Cervera, it is possible that the
people who placed him in high
command have some redeeming
virtues. In our civil war the
privates of both armies exchanged
civilities on the picket lines.
Stonewall Jackson rebuked them
and once when a picket brought
him a New York paper he refused
it and said : "Take nothing from
them, sir, and give them nothing
but lead. They are our enemies"
But the common soldier has not
considered tho cashs belli, the
aggravation from a national
standpoint nor can he, like Crom
well or Stonewall Jackson, worship
God by killing nis country's foes."

Washington, July 30.-Events
of the most momentous character
occurred at the conference at the
white house this afternoon between
the president, Ambassador Cam
bon, of France, and Secretary Day,
carrying the peace negotiations
far beyond the mere submission of
terms of peace by the United
States, and reaching the point of
preliminary basis of peace between
the goverment of Spain and the
government of the United States,
needing only, the ratification of the
Madrid cabinet in what was done
today to bring the war to an
This was accomplished on the
part of Spain when Ambassador
Cambon presented to the president
credentiiiis he had received from
the Spanish government, appoin

plenipotentiary, with complete
instructions as tc the manner of
acting upon every one of the
peace conditions presented by the
United Slates, including tbe
disposition of Cuba, Porto Rico,
the Philippines, the Ladrones,
indemnity, armistice, and all other
questions likely to arise in thc
course of the negotiations..
With these credentials authoriz
iug him to speak, as plenipoten
tiary, for the government of Spain,
and with full instructions on every
point at issue, Ambassador Cam
bon, in behalf of Spain, not only
received the peace conditions laid
down by the American cabinet
earlier in the day, but thereupon
entered upon their full discussion
with a view to reaching a final and
After strong argument, tho pres
ident and Secretary Day consent
ed to a modification of the Ameri
can terms in one particular.
What that modification relates
to is not disclosed, but, it is be
lieved, not to apply to the condi
tion for the absolute independence
of Cuba, the cession of Porto Rico,
or the granting of adequate coaling
stations to the United States in
the Pacific, or to diminish in any
vita? particular the terms on which
peace will be restored. .
This modification brought about
practical unanimity between tho
president and Ambassador Can:
bon, as plenipotentiary for Spain,
and the latter has now transmit

to Madrid for approval, which, if
given, will end the wai.

Issues all Forms of Policies
at Lowest Possible Rates
Consistent with Safety.
AND without making special medtion of each of its many popu
lar plans of insurance, we desire to invite the careful examina
tion of all concerned in Life Insurance to THE PROVTDENf'S
TWENTY-YEAR RENEWABLE TERM POLICY-A SPECIAL
POLICY FOR BUSINESS MEN.
Twenty years is a long time. This is true in life insurance, as
well as in other business transactions. Nearly all life insurance poli
cies are contracts for a period of twenty years. They are made so by
insurance companies to supply the the needs of the insuring public.
When a man takes n whole-life, twonty payment lifo or twenty-year
bond, he considers its cost to him during twenty years, and the settle
ment which he can make at the end of twenty years. Experience and
statistics prove that only a small percentage of policies are continued
longer than the twenty-year period.
Men take on large lines of insurance from age 30 to 40. The ?n
suiug twenty years cover the period when their families are growing
up and beingfeducated ; it also covers the period of their greatest busi
ness activity. It covers the time when their families and business in
leresta require]*the greatest amount of protection.
A man's requirements are not the same at 60 years that they are
at 40 years. His family has grown up, his business conditions have
changed, or the necessity for insurance has disappeared.
In view of these facts,.The Provident Savings issues a policy at a
fixed rate for twenty years, which includes only the cost of protection
for that time.' The premiums on this policy are loss than one-half tho
premiums charged for a twonty-payment life. If arcan wants insur
ance for protect ion only, this policy will snpply his wants admirably.
He is not obliged to make a deposit with an insurance company for a
future which he may never reach ; especially when he has need for
this deposit, and more, too, in his business.
To illustrate this Policy, we will give the figures. A man at 30
takes one of these Policies for $1,000 at the regular term rate? of %t? Qi -
.per annwm for twenty years. This policy can be continued, after
twenty years, without medical re-examination, afr rates for the age
