Judging from the way in which sub
scriptions to the war bonds are now
pouring into the treasury by every
mail it looks as though the issue of
$200,000,000 will be largely oversub

that banks and other corporations will

by the United States troops, who were
within four miles of the city on Mou

The war with Spain has already
had beneficial results. It has turned
fch? minds of tho people from the
degrading channel of mean politic" \o
progressive ideas and a realization of
the defenseless condition the war
found this country iu. The compen
sating results of the war will more
than repay its cost.

It is said that as soon as the war
with Spain comes to a close (icneral
Pitzhugh Lee will be offered the
Presidency of theTixus State Agri
cultural and Mechanical College in
Bryan, which has been vacant for
some time. There are forty appli
cants for the position, and their eager
rivalry has prevented the choice of
any one of them. They will all with
draw in favor of Lee.
The area planted in wheat iu the
United States this year, according to
the statistician of tho department of
Agriculture at Washington, is IIS mil
lion acres larger than last year and
nearly 10 per cent larger than was
over devoted to this cereal before.
This great increase in area is a result
of tho high price received by the
farmers for the crop produced in 1807,
and if the present conditions are
maintained the aggregate yield will
greatly exceed that of any other year.

Unloss the expeditions to Santiago
do Cuba and Porto llico accomplish
their objects with less delay and diffi
culty than arc now expected, it is
probable that there will be another
call for volunteers about the time all
those responding to the second call
have been mustered in. While noth
ing has been determined ou this point,
it is a matter that is being very gene
/ rally discussed among War Depart
ment authorities and leading members
of the military committees of Con
gress. It is realized that it will be
better to err on tho side of having too
many mcu rather than too few.
The success of the Vesuvius in ii? r
work <>l destruction at Santiago harbor
:i few days since demonstrates partially
at least that the dynamite cruiser is
ti? become a terrible engine of war.
It is possible for the speedy little
craft to run up within range, discharge
her bombs and get away before the
enemy can locate her range. The

explosive-. It doe not explode by
shock or concussion, but must be de

success, then it will prove that the

Santiago ut: Ci;ij.\, June 21, I81IS.
)/>/ /hm- I'lithrr I have written
you an account of the bombardment of
Santiago, but the letter has not left
the ship, and will not leave until to
morrow. While we are lying here
su fieri n.t! from the monotony of in
action, 1 can pass the time in no more
pleasant way than givinv you my
views on the situation.
I'eople may talk of battles but tight
ing is easy compared to doing nothing.
Kverybody is fractious and discon
i tented, from the captains to the lauds
, men. The ships are forced to remain
in practically the same position from
day to <lay, and the heat, together with
the sultry weather causes (tue to feel
about half sick. However, Admiral
Sampson keeps in good spirit and he
said to-day: "I hud rather lose my
head than to let one of Admiral Ccr
vera's ships escape." The Navy
understands the difficulties that en
cumber the army and we have no i
complaint to make against it. It
seems ihiu a great many people glory
in criticising the policy of General
Miles. He is a trie I officer, and from
long experience and successful battles
thoroughly understands his business
and knows exactly what to do. On
paper the Spanish army in Cuba con
sists of 140,000 men, &0,000 of whom
arc in good fighting trim. Then to
land our army in Cuba before it is
fully equipped and disciplined would
be n serious mistake and would result
very likely in an inglorious defeat.
Whereas if we wait until we get 100,
000 soldiers roady, easy victory will
be assured. While it may seem hard
to wait the pople cannot complain of
-he delay and expense, because they
are entirely to blame;, some say the
Congressmen aro at fault, but not so;
they represent the will of the people.
Then let our country profit by this
mistake, and have a regular army large
enough for any emergency. America
has grown and developed in every way
since the time of Washington. 25,000
men may have been sufficient then,
but we must now keep pace with the
other nations and should have a regu
lar army of at least 100,000 men.
Then to turn to the other and more,
important branch of the service, the
navy. What shameful neglect do we
sec? Will the American people remain
blind to the needs of our navy? Let
us hope not. If we had met a first
class power our navy would certainly
have fallen far short of the expecta
tion of the people. Too much confi
dence is had in our navy. While there
arc brave officers and men in tho ser
vice, patriotism cannot win battles
where forces are very unevenly match
ed. There is no doubt that the
Americans would tight their ships to
the last conquering equal forces, or
maybe superior forces, but with a
first-class naval power our vessels
would have to disappear from the seas
for a long time, and the (iovcrnmcnt
suffer many indignities. In the cud
we would win. but tho war would be
long, for it takes at least two years to I
build a battle shipaud fit her properly.
Then let us be up and doing; profit by
the mistake of the past, and follow
tho old rule:
"In time of poaee prepare for war."
The present war is going to be of great
value to this country. It will educate
the people. Naval officers will be
able to determine the practical valuo
of the types of vessels and guns now
in use and make such improvements
and changes that aro necessary in the
new ships that are to be built. There
are many defects already discovered.
The policy of our Government is
now on tho eve of a change. The
greatest problem thut has ever con
fronted us is now to be solved, that is
tho annexation of territory. Up to
tho present time the territory in
America has been sufficient for our
necessities, but as we have grown in
wealth, population and commerce, it
is necessary to establish coaling sta
tions throughout the world if we ex
pect to become a great commercial
nation. Then it remains with tho
peoplo to decide this question. Let
them weigh it considerately and care
fully, for on tho decision rests the
.-.ji^. Jih.. m ii,'., '.....- . ' '.
ut uro greatness ihm! Independence of
America. There is the annexatiou of
Hawaii, the Philippines, probably
Porto Kico and later Cuba. Here is
i grand opportunity for the young
American to distinguish himself. If
I were not in the navy 1 would be
willing to devote my life work to
accomplish the above. It must come.
1 might be met by reverses at lirst,
but in the end I would be successful.
These are my opinions after a careful
study of the subject.
For the present we will remain at
Santiago. When it is taken and we
can get 10.000 soldiers we will move
to I'or to Kico. After taking I'orto
Kico it will be necessary for us to
remain at Havana until the army is
ready. If Spain does not call for
peace the war is likely to continue
until late in the fall. The Spaniards
are proud and brave und will not give
up without c desperate and stubborn
fight. When the war is over 1 will
enjoy a short visit home to my beloved
State of South Carolina, and then 1
can tell you long war stories.
Love to all from your loving son,
Louis C. Kiciiardhon.
