Tho Bankruptcy Ulli.
Tho bill to pr?vido for a uniform
system of bankruptcy, which has
passed both Houses of Congress,' by
tho adoption of tho Conference re
port, is a very long ono, and vory
largely technical. In other word?,
i tho groator part of it is intended to

it and to provont fraud or misunder

tho bill an agreed on by.tho Confer

comparatively small space. Thone
who desire to tako advantage of it
will of course have to road it in full
or consult some ono who understands
it thoroughly. Tho bill provides
for both voluntary and in' ? Unitary
bankruptcy, though tho l 'lvcr part
of it is somewhat restricted, ss com
pared with what many persons de
sired to see incorporated in it. AP

WASHINGTON, August 12.-Plans
for tho temporary government of
Cuba and tho territory which will bc
acquired from Spain as a result of
thc war aro now under serious con
sideration by tho President and thc
members of tho Cabinet. Porto
Pico as an actual acquisition to tho
territory of the United States will
bc placed in charge of a military
Governor, who will oxorciso a super
visory control of all tho functions of
thc government, nader tho direction
of tho President, until Congress
shall determine upon a permanent
form of government for the island.
Tho President, under tho Constitu
tion amt laws, has no authority to go
beyond this preliminary or temporary
stago in tho establishment of any
system of government control, al
though it is altogcthor probable that
in his message to Congress on thc
subject ho will exorcise his constitu
tional privilege of making recom
mendations. Upon Congress aloin1
will devolve tho responsibility and
duty of determining tho oharaotei
of tho political relations which Porte
Pico shall permanently boar to thc
United States. Thoro aro reason,
for thc belief that thc ProsidoVll
himself favors a colonial form oi
govormnont, and that this view ii
shared by the members of thc Gabi
net. Canada is cited as having n
model colonial government, which ii
satisfactory alike to a majority of iti
people and to tho mother country
This systom, however, it is believed
can be put into operation only aftei
thc lapse of a considerable period o
time, and after thc people havo de
monstratod thoir ability to goven
themselves, lt is believed to be th?
intention of tho President to cstab
lish for the whole island of Cuba i
temporary military government simi
lar lo that now in operation in San
I tiago. When order has been full
restored and tho people have settle*
down to their peaceful occupations
it is believed lo bo the view of th
President that a convention of rep
resontatives of the people should b
called to vote upon tho question of
form of government for the islam
Thc presence of tho army of th
United States would bc a gu?rante
that every citizen who would sub.
scribe to an oath binding himself I
support whatever form of goven
ment should bo decided upon shout
have, tho unquestioned right to vol
for whomsoever bc pleased to reprc
sent him at this convention. Th
action of this body, however, wool
have lo bc submitted to the Unite
States for approval or disa pprovfl
It is pointed out that this convoi
lion of representatives of tho who
people in the free exeroiso of thc
choice might express a wish to bi
cornea colonial dependency of tli
United States, or might favor a r<
publican form of government, (
possibly a majority might ask to I
annexed to tho United States. ]
any of these contingencies it is 1>
lievod that their wishes would mei

WASHINGTON, AUGUST 12 .-SECRETARY ALGER HAS CABLED
ORDERS TO ALL MILITARY COMMANDERS TBtAT THE PROTOCOL
OF PEACE HAS BEEN SIGNED AND TO CEASE HOSTILITIES. ;
THE PROTOCOL WAS SIGNED BY SECRETARY DAY AND M.
CAMBON, THE FRENCH AMBASSADOR.
Following is a statement of the protocol's contents as given out by Sec
retary Day :
" 1. That Spain will relinquish all claim of sovereignty over and title to
Cuba.
44 2. That Porto Rico and other Spanish islands in the West Indies and
an island in the Ladrones, to be selected by the United States, shall be ceded
to the latter.
" 3. That the United States will occupy and hold the city, bay and Har
bor of Manila, pending the conclusion of a treaty of peace which shall deter
mine the control, disposition and government of the Philippines.
" 4, That Cuba, Porto Rico and other Spanish islands in the West Indies
shall be immediately evacuated and that commissioners to be appointed
within ten days, shall, within thirty days from the signing of the protocol,
meet at Havana and San Juan, respectively, to arrange and execute the
details of the evacuation,
" 5. That the United States and Spain will appoint not more than five
commissioners to negotiate and conclude a treaty of peace. The commis
sioners are to meet in Paris not later than October 1.
" 6. On the signing of the protocol, hostilities will be suspended, and
notice to that effect will be given as soon as possible by each government
to the commanders of its military and naval forces."
Protocol.
Tho Journal has received from one
of its subscribers an inquiry as to
thc meaning of the word "protocol,"
which is now used so frequently in
tho accounts of peace negotiations.
Webster defines protocol as follows :
"(1) Tho original copy of any
writing, as of a deed, treaty, dis
patch or other instrument. ('2) Tho
minutes, or rougi? draught, of an in
strument or transaction. (<>) A pre
liminary document upon tho basis of
which negotiations are carried on.
A convention not formally ratified.
An agreement of diplomatists indi
cating the results reached by them
at a particular stage of a negotia
tion."
The Standard Dictionary delinos
the word as follows :
"(1) The preliminary sketch or
draft of a treaty, dispatch or other
official document. (ii) A diplomatic
document, minuto or agreement con
taining thc official record, or embo
dying the results of a negotiation ;
a declaration or memorandum of
agreement less solemn or formal than
a treaty ; also a supplementary
clause or declaration explaining a
treaty or extending its scope or dura
tion."
These d?finitions give an exact
idea of the process of reaching a
settlementbotwoon tho United States
and Spain. The protocol, which tho
Spanish cabinet has signed, embo
dies a statement of the terms of
peace proposed by tho United States
and accepted by Spain. The two
governments will now appoint com
missioners who will meet and em
body this preliminary agreement in
the solemn form of a treaty. This
treaty will then bo ratified by tho
Senate of tho United States and
signed by the President. It will
also be ratified by the Spanish Cortos
and signed by the Queen IlogOtlt.
Then peace will bo consummated.-?

Dear Sir: I have just learned from
the last papers that I am indebted
to you for the introduction in tho
House of Representatives of the
resolutions extending lo me tho
thanks of Congress for tho naval
engagement of Manila Kay, May 1.
1 need hardly tell you that I am
most sincerely grateful to you as tho
author of the resolution, bringing as
it does the highest honor that can
come to an American naval officer in
his professional career, lint it is a
great pleasure to acknowledge my
debt of gratitude, and to thank you
in u tstinted mensuro for tho par?
you took in obtaining for mo thc
greatest distinction.
It is a source of additional pleas
ure to me, a Vermonter, that the
mover of the resolution was not a
man from the North, but one from
tho far South. This is ono of the
good signs of tho times. In tho
hour of danger Ibero is no South, no
North, but tho united country. May
wo never hear of sectionalism again.
Thore are no lines drawn in tho navy.

It is hard to seo how trouble bo
tween England and Russia in China
is to bo avoided, if ono or tho other
of those great - powers docs not
recode from tho position it has taken
a light seems inevitable.
Kassia insists that a certain part
of Northeastern China is her "sphere
of influence that she is to have
control thorn and that no othoi
nation shall acquire interest in that
territory. Russia claims that she
has under her arrangement with
China thc oxclusivc right to build
and own railroads in tho territory in
question.
England, howe vor, has a conces
sion to build a railroad to cxtond
frowtho vicinity of Pekin Northeast
ward directly through Russia's
I alleged sphere ol influence. It will
roach tho Russian railroad that
comes down from Siberia to Port
Authur. Russia insists that England
shall not build this road ; England
swears that sho will build it. It
appears that Chinabas made conflict
ing concessions to Russia and long
land in her anxiety to koop on good
terms with both.
Russia will probably attack (Jinna
if tho ICnglish begin to construct
their railroad. In that event ling
land would stand by China and a
war of gigantic proportions would
follow.
Russia has takon a firm stand.
Recently sho has informed China
that England must not ontor tho
territory in which China has recog
nized Russia ns tho controlling power.
As England is quito as firm in her
determination to uso her railroad
concessions, tho situation is a vory
gravo one.

Tho War is Over.
After about ono hundred hundred
and twenty days of war we have
whipped Spain at cost to UH of not
more than 1,500 lives, all told, Homo
two hundred million of dollars-a
sum representing thc fortunes of
two or three of our wealthiest
citizens. Wc do not know what thc
cost to our unhappy enemy has been
and will bo. lt is onormous in
money and not inconsiderable in life.
Yot if Spain is wiso tho war and
its results may provo to bc the
greatest blessing of her history. She
will bc relieved of a colonial system
which was a frightful drain upon ber
resources of mon and money and an
offence to tho world. Her energies
may now be concentrated upon her
own territory and, porhaps, upon the
Philippines. She has beep taught
she is responsible to tho world's pub
lic opinion and may heed the lesson.
On the other hand, if we aro un
wise our victory will be tho worst
curso that has ovor como upon us.
Foolish management in Cuba, Porto
Rico and tho Philippines would bring*
worse disasters than tl <) civil war,
would cost more liven and dollars
than that struggle. Tho Cubans, too,
must determino by thoir conduct
whether their deliverance from tho
Spanish yoke will bo good or bad for
thom.
So far, our administration bas
given tho country ovory reason for
oonlidence in its honesty of purposo
and wisdom. We have freed Cuba
and stopped tho horrors thero, wo
have acquired Porto Rico, which if
proporly managed will ]>fty us amply
all tho war has cost us, and wo aro
in position to inforeo reforms in tho
Philippines and to make civilization
triumphant there These aro vast
achievements. Now if wo will go on
with honost regard to our obliga
tions to tho Almighty and our own
principies and our rosponsibiltios to
civilization and tho world, we will
make our littlo war a shining ovoni.

Flour Milling In South Carolina*
Tho NOWB and Courier has urgod
for sovoral years past tho praotioa
bility of growing in South Carolina
all tho whoat and manufacturing all
the Hour required for homo consump
tion, at least, to tho groat advantage
of thc agricultural interest in the
first instanco, and with tho incidontal
and desirablo results of establishing
a now and oonsidorab?o manufactur
ing industry nt homo and keeping in
tho Stato thoreby tho largo sums of
monoy' expended ovory year for
Hour ; and it is gratifying to noto
tho Humorous ovidonees of a vory
gonernl movement in tho desired di
rection. In tho last few days only
wo haye marked several roporti from
different parts of tho Stato, showing
tho rapid development of tho flour
milling business, and wo prosont a
short review of tho fads for tho
genoral information, and by ?ray of
suggestion to unprogressive counties
and communities which still look to
tho West for tho largor part of their
broad supply.
Tho "busiest pooplo in York coun
ty now," it was hoted by our York
villo correspondent, "are tho owners
of the roller flour mills. Tho mill at
this place, which has a oapacity of
(10 barrols in 24 hours, runs day and
night without stopping." Mw Rid
dle's mill also was "a wook behind'
its work, and it was especially noted
that tho wheat that is ground in thc
mills "was raised in York and thc
adjoining counties, and as a conse
quence there has been n considerable
falling off in tho demand for flout
from tho West."
Our Spartanburg correspondent
roported about tho samo dato, thal
since tito wheat crop came in there
has been very littlo demand foi
"storo flour," and added that "thc
whoat mills arc crowded these dayl
and have all tho grinding they cai
do." Placing tho value of the flow
at 2.V cents a pound, bo addod, "th<
wheat is worth #1 a bushel." Oui
farmers generally will do woli t<
note this offect of tho prosenco ant
oporation of a mill in their neighbor
hood. Flour is really worth los
than 2.1 cents a pound.
Our Laurons correspondent re
ported : "Tho Laurens stoam flou
mills aro doing a splendid business
Every day thoir mill is surroundci
with wagons bringing whoat fron
the country. Good crops of when
have boon raised in thu county an
tho mill was established at an oppoi
tune timo."
From Columbia it is reported tim
Pr. Boozer has rofittod tho Au
steam mill, "and is giving good rc
suits in old-fashioned, unndultoratc
flour. From five bushels of whor
the mill turns out 200 pounds c
flour, first and second quality, OJ
olusivo of tho 'toll.' Forty-si
pounds of flour to the bushel is tl
usual result, but prime wheat yiolt
forty-oight pounds." Any farmer en
make tho calculation on this bas
whether it pays to raiso whoat ii
stoad of buying flour.
Wo are not trying to givo a list <
all tho flour mills in tho Stato, an
these four examples will servo voi
woll to show tho capabilities of sue
concerns, and what they mean to tl
communities served by them. It
to be noted, howevor, that Groei
ville has just organized a mill of tl
capacity of P25 barrels of flour ai
OOO bushels of meal, and small
enterprises of tho samo kind wo
reported during the past week fro
Control, nuncan, and Cray Com
Evidently tho new industry has tak<
a strong hold in tho uppor part
tho Stato, and is growing rapid
tboro. It will probably extond
ovory county in a fow years, ai
there is no danger of tho buslnc
hoing ovordono in any county. "
vory conservativo estimate," says o
Spartanburg correspondent, "plac
the amount of wheat, and corn i
quirod to give bread to the classes
tho county not owning or rentii
farms at a quarter of a million bus
ols per annum." Tboro are mc
than forty counties in the Stato whi
rcquiro nearly as much. The farnu

Tho question of how ninny mon
?South Carolina furnished to tho Con
federate Army is ono for varioM;i
reasons cannot bo answorod with ab
solute accuracy, and owing to tho ,
fact that tho muster rolls of sovoral.
rcglmonts havo been destroyed, and .
that thoro woro South Carolinians in
every rogimont that wont to tho
front from Statos wost of boro, thoro
is no probability that it ovor will bo
answered to a man, or to within a
fow hundreds of thousands of tho
correct figuro. In responso to tho
request of a correspondent a reporter
undertook to Bocure the ligures, and
by applying to tho best available
sources arrived at an close an esti
mate, perhaps, as can bc had, fixing
tho total at 02,500, of which 30,907
volunteered prior to tho passago of
tho Conscript Act.
According to tho figures furnished '
by thc War Department at Wash
ington South Carolina furnished 40
regiments] 18 battalions and 0 inde
pendent companies of infantry ; 0
regiments, 12 battalions and G indo
pondont companies of cavalry ; 3
regiments, 4 battalions and .17 inde
pendent companies of artillery and 0
regiments and 7 battalions of re
serves, homo guards, making a total
of G2 regiments, 35 battalions and
29 independent companies. Esti
mating that a regiment in tho civil
war had about 1,000 mon on its roll,
a battnllion about 000, and a com
pany 100, this would mako it appoar
that thoro wcro 80,000 mon or more
in grey from South Carolina. Tho
fact, however, is that thoro woro not
nearly so many South Carolina regi
ments, tho mistake having arisen by
reason of several of the regiments
being renumbered at tho limo of
their reorganization, and in that way
counted twice, a fact which very
readily accounts for the error into
which tho War Department has
fallen.
It would be a most remarkable fact
j if tbeso ligures were true, when it is
reoallod that at the beginning of tho
war the total arms-bearing population
of the State between the ages of 18
and 45 was 56,046, and that under
tho (Jonscript Act of 18G3 Ibero
wore only 09,880 men in the Stato
liable between the ages of 15 and 50.
Therefore, as will bo seen, tho liguros
of thc War Department aro ruled
out of court by the census ligures of
tho year 1800, which cannot bo gono
boll ind and bear out tho 02,500 esti
mato, which may be regarded as
nearly correct as can ever be made
