Thcro is no escapo from war botwoeu !
tim Dui teil State? and Spain unless iho|
latter ingloriously baokH down. Thia
not to bo expectod. TJ10 ruling dynasty j
in .Spain perceive that it is better to |
j'u;ht a foreign than an internal foe.
Tho ultimatum was cabled to Madrid I
yesterday afternoon by rresident Mo-1
Kinley, giving Spain forty-eight hours to
ovaeuato Cuba and withdraw bor land
and naval forces. Tho dornend has mot
iv Hat. refusal. Tho European powers
can do nothing furthov by way of media
tion. Tho ministers and consuls of tho I
respectivo governments huvo withdrawn
from tho territory cf tho contending par
tios. Thus everything ib in roadinoss for j
lt. is probablo that boforo tho ond of
ibis wook a groat naval engagement will
bo fought in Cohan waters. Acting on
tho udvlco of Consul Gonoral Loo, an
army wbl bo landed upon Cuba, and our
I government will use both land and naval
cs against thc Siianish troops.
Tho dio has now boon cast, and patrio
tic! Americans will respond as ono man I
to tho oall to arms. It is announced thnt|
there arc nov,-over ouo million npplioa
lions on lllo in tho War Dopartinont at
Washington for enlistment as volunteers
in tho army and navy. Two hundred
thousand, troops aro now ot tho Prosi
dent'e disposal. Tho destruction of tho
Maine and hor orow by Spanish troachory
will bo avongod. War is a terrible thing,
but iii tilla instance tho hardoi- tho con
flict at tho oulsot, tho soouor it will bo
, onded. \In our opinion it may last from
six months to a year, with a chanco that
it might bo seemor duded.

Tito Burdons of Taxation.
lu every campaign in this Slate since
1870, tho cry of " Reform " in tho gov
orument of tho State has caught our ear
and wc have been lcd to boliovo thal the
moaning of " Reform," as used, was an
intended reduction of thc taxes exacted
from tho citizens ami a corresponding
reduction of government expenditure,
From 1870 to ISM) tho State levy varied
from li to BJ mills, with no reduction of
expenditure. Under these taxes thc
voters of tho St ato woro not satisfied,
and in 1890 they became restless. Thc
pcoplo arose in their might and presented
a solid phalanx in a determined offert to
chango their ruling class. Af tm- a hit
ter and hard-fought campaign success
crowned their efforts.
When tho result of that election was
announced tho mass of voters retired
from the Held of politics, satisfied in thc.
belief that victory incant relief to them
and tho State. Many expressed thc
opinion that no benefits would accrue
from thc chango, and for this expression
they were severely censured; so sure
wore tho victors that their friends held
the reins und would guido tho Ship of
St"te might, they would brook no criti
cism. Thoy consoled themselves for six
years in tho boin; that thc promised
benefits were only deferred and that
their friends would soon accomplish
hc.nc.'ici:'1 l'C'.ilt?- They conceded thai,
it took timo to solve tho problom.
After eight years' waiting it transpires
that the wlshed-for reform is a snare and
a delusion. Thoro has been no realiza
tion or tho good results looked for as a
roturn for their earnest clforts.
Since 1800, while thc assessed value of
the property of tho State has increased
some $111,000,11111), st ill t here is no decrease
in the levy, and weare blandly told it
must. yet. go higher.
' Wo have refunded tho State debt at an
an ll fla! saving of $100,0T<U Why is there
an increased oxpcnditi.ro by tho State ?
Cannot the government bc. conducted
efficiently on less money than formerly ?
The corn cribs and meat houses ask
the (pies!.ion. The family cinda asks the
question. The simple, imperative needs
of thc country ask tho question in thun
We fool that tho stringency of tho
times should induce our law-making
hodies to answer the question with an
emphatic " Yes." But the enforcement,
of this kind of reform must come, as it
always has, from the rank and li lo of
the people af the ballot, box.
From 1870 to 1 BOO tho prico of farm
products was very nearly double thal of
to-day. A dollar to-day will purchase
about twice as nundi as it would then.
Products are worth less, and a dollar is
worth more. It takes only about half
thc dollars to defray tho expenses of
living now that it. did then.
From 1870 to 1800 tho salaries of State
officers were $2,100; that of Govornor
and Judges $?3,600. Tho salaries of
State Officers arc now $1,000; the (inver
nor$:5,000; tho Judges $2,750. Thc num
ber of State officers has been increased
nearly enough to consume ill that is
saved in tho salary reduction.
