Tliere -crab a quiet little Madrid dls
PMcfa in The Times yesterday, the gist of
widen was that Gen. Stewart L. Woodford
w6 understood to have sailed for Spain
with -wrtaln pertinent lnftruoUons In his
nruncnt. Among th'ese was one to stop
at London and Paris, and at those capitals
to .liclt the iind alliance of Great Britain
and France In a scheme for a Joint trl
nattenai dCinand for indemnity against
The report may or may not be true. If
true, it le a disgraceful commentary upon
the truckling tendency of our masters in
their relations with European nations. To
ask Aid Trorn Europe In advancing or main
taining our rights and interests in the
Western hemisphere would be a gratuitous
MHTenderof Aruerlcanlnduence and power
on this side of the Atlantic. Such a thin;
wewld look uncomfortablylike a deliberate
Nheme to place ourselves In the power of
Euiope, nd to suliserviute our hemispheric
American policy to that of a foreign coali
tion in which we would exercise but a
minor Influence and lave scarcely a voice.
The United States is big enough, and Its
rople are brave enough, to attend to Its
o-nn affairs. It Is, or ought to be, the
nation paramount in this half of the wotld.
We should not expect the trans-Atlantic
nations to tolerate active Interferences by
ub in the affairs of Turkey, Armenia, or
Coylon. These regions do not come within
Anr natural sphere of influence: but Europe
jught not, and. If the American people can
have their way. will not, be tolerated In
dbstiructiug ns In stiictly American mat
."ers, like the annexation of Hawaii, the
onbtnirtlou and control of the Nicaragua
Ciaal, or the recognition and protection
of Outmn Independence.
Whatever may be the policy or inten
ititios of the Hanna Administration, there
is .mors fight than there Is foreign alliance
or aiouarchical arbitration in the temper of
tlie American people at this present time.
Daily we are being thown fresh reasons
for aisfWHylngandemphablzingthat temper-
Troops for Klondike.
It seems to have been decided by the
Government to send a small expedition
to loefc after tniugs up the Klondike. With
oomweudable zeal, the Canadian authori
ties Have arranged to forward re-enforcc-iients
to their present command of mounted
ooltoc la the region, and there isno reason
why the United States should not take
complementary action. Without stopping
at ,tris time to discuss the question of
lonudary linos, it Is tafe to say that
tbey re apt to vary more when only
British Xorces are present than when
the traops ot another and strong nation
also arc near the ground, he it In previous
dUgmtu or not.
In mobilizing a small corps of volun
teer's drawn from the regular army and
placing lr. under the orders of an officer
trained and experienced in Arctic life and
emergencies, the War Department has done
one Mmig that seems lo meet the ap
proval of the country. The action al
inst follows the line of our suggestion
tliat a .skeleton force bhould be placed
in tfec district with authority vested in
Its oominanuing officer to organize the
American miners Into a territorial militia
far purposes or defense, if that should be
come necesbary during the long closed
winter. By all means let us have some
good officers and men on the ground as
oon as possible.
Tresldent SIcKinleyVs Shame.
The New York Herald yesterday pub
lished & Havana dispatch the reading of
which, and he did read It. ought to have
brought the blush ot shame to the face of
America's nominal President.
A young native American of Spanish
parentage. Manuel Fernandez, has been
sentencedto the certain and horrible death
of a life Eentence at bard labor in chains
for daring to draw his sword in the causo
of lnra.au liberty and Cuban independence.
The peculiar gravamen ot his offense, how
ever, is that he was captured with and
present at the instantaneous and horrible
butchery of young Govln, the American
newspaper correspondent, who was tied
to & tree and hacked to death with Span
ish machetes. Fernandez is said to have
given rr.o.t of the information possessed by
the State Department in reference to this
case. Therefore it is easy to see why he
should ho doomed to a lingering death of
torture. Uia crime was a double one. Tn
Uie first place he witnesvid the butchery
of un American newspaper man; In the
eroud, he annoyed the government of that
Journalist by placing it In the predicament
of a knowledge of the facts without any
Cleveland or Hanna reason for acting on
At the bur of national public opinion this
sentence of Mnnuel Fernandez cannot fall
to once more raise the question ot a
recognition of Cuban Iwlllgerency If that
had been recogntzed before the fiendish
assasslunt Ion of Covin, lie and other
American prloncrs taken by the Spaniards
necessarily would have been treated as
prisoners of war; and today young Fer
nandez would have to be treated honorably
in the same way. As it is, the former
is dead, having been foullj murdered,
and the latter is destined to a living death
as a criminal. It is to avert exactly
such tilings that international law, based
on the dictates of common humanity, make
it mandatory upon nations placed in re
lation to neighboring revoluti6ng, as
ve are to the struggle in Cuba, to recog
nize the right of the revolutionary forces
to all the protection guaranteed by tho
laws of civilized warfare. .
This Govcrnifaent has recognized the
fact of the war, in trying to prevent aid
from reaching the patriots; again, in using
the Navy oi the United States to re-enforcu
the arms of Spain againbt a free peoplu
battling lo the death for their independ
ence But It has refused the formal
recognition which would have saved
honorable prisoners ot war from murder,
and among them a lot of American citi
zens from torture and assassination, lu
tills respect two American administration
will not escape the historical verdict that
they have been as bad as their ally,
Weylcr, the Spanish hyena.
Tlie Andrews Incident.
The London Chronicle sometimes is able
to rise above the plane of momentary Lom
bard street interests and see economic
dangeis in the enslavement of a once great
and free people by a ring of monopolists
Among other things connected with Ameri
can uatlyual erolutJon at this time the
Chronicle fears the effect of such move
ments as the current attempt to suppress
free speech among the educators of tho
United States. In an editorial article yes
terday it observed that the dismissal of
Prof. E. Benjamin Andrews from the presi
dency cf Brown University could only ba
regaided as "the most serious blow tho
capitalist oligarchy has yet struck at
social, economic and Intellectual liberty In
America." It adds:
There is no doubt that, like Prof Bemis.
who was dismissed rrum tho University
or Chicago, Prof. Andrews was di&misied
because he warned his countrymen ngaiust
the growtn of great monopolies
It seems certain that a conflict is ap
proaching that will shake the Union as
It was shaken by the great tJavery ques
tion. It looks as though the 6plendid
millionaire endowments of American uni
versities had the unworthy motive of the
promotion of the interests of the monopo
lists. We anticipate a great wave of
opinion against the pretensions of the
monopolist class as dangerous to freedom.
This movement will lead to the substi
tution ot public for prlvnte control and
ownership ot the big trusts and monopo
lies, and the substitution of State for
private colleges and universities.
The Times could not have put tho case
more strongly. The words of the Lon
don Chronicle, above quoted, are most sig
nificant When such a danger to our lib
erties becomes apparent across 3,000 miles
of ocean, perhaps it Is one that we would
best be considering, tool
Ice Cream and Itu Hlslory.
Almost anyone who has reached mlddlo
life can remember the first plate of ice
cream he or 6b e ever ate. A century
ago there were only one or two pluccs
in this country where such a thing could
be found These places were kept by
French confectioners, who bromrbt the
idea from their own country. It was not
nntil some time In the fifties that Icb
cream became anything like a familiar
article on American tables, and that wa
owing lo the fact that Jerome Bonaparto
and his family settled In Baltimore and
introduced the article. About thirty years
ago American ice cream began to be
made, at 30 or 60 cents a quart, which
was abuot half what the French ice cream
had ense Then capitalists turned their
attention to the business seriously, and
there is about halt a million dollars in
vested in the business now. This, of
course, clifcs not include the vast numbers
of families and hotels and restaurants who
make their own cream with a freezer.
Neither does it include the hokey-pokey
compound. Ice cream proper Is made
from good cream, and though there has
been a good deal ot talk about adu!ttra
tion in this delicious article, manufac
turers say that there Is no way In which
it could be adulterated that would lessen
the cost. Condensed milk and cornstarch
are occasionally used, but that Is all.
The Italian push-cart men sell a cn-atn
which is mide mainly of condensed milk,
sugar, and cheap extract of some kind.
The cheapness of tlfelr article probably is
made possible by the way in which it is
served, the customer usually licking it off a
piece of brown paper, though lately some
ot the street Tenders serve It In cheap
glnsset with spoons. At the restaurants
the cost of serving Is an important factor.
j It has never been claimed that in paying
five cent's for a cup of coffee the cus
tomer actually gets five cents' worth ot
drink. He pays for having it brought
to him lu a clean cup, with a napkin,
spoon, and glass of water, and for
having che cup washed afterward and a
waiter ready to bring him anything else
be wants while drinking the coffee. So
with ice cream. Though the cost of manu
facturing the cream is very considerable,
the cost -of serving makes a considerable
difference in the prlca.
French Ice cream, curiously enough, is
made in a way almost lotallydiffereutfrom
American ice cream, and requires special
training In the men who do the making
The French or Viennese confectioner who
make.1" the Trench cream cannot make the
American warn successfully, and vice
versa. American Ice cream appears to be
more popular In London than the Con
tinental variety -Not long ago the mayor
of Belfast gave a ball,-for which he had
ice cream made in Npw JTork and shipped
all the way across the ocean. American
ice cream seems to be fully equal to any
other in the world, and It is certainly much
According to the latest utterances of
London newspapers Mr. Chamberlain's
great scheme of imperial federation has
fallen completely flat. The colonies want
ed direct representation in the Urltish
Parliament. EnglHh colonies always did,
and because thirteen otthem couldnotget
It peaceably there wnsconslderable trouble
during the last century and much talk
about arbitration at the tall end ot this
one. But John Bull would scorn to sit
in Lords or Commons with his colonial
brother. In that respect he has forgot
ten and learned .nothing. The aspiring
colonltd seeietary sits down in bitterness
to realize that you cannot satisfy colonial
premiers or their constituencies merely
with toffy, stars and ebromos.
After the experience ot the extra ses
sion we aie sorry to see reports that
Senator Gorman is trying to keep the
great American bimetallic issue out ot
the Maryland campaign. The gold interest
in New Yoik is making a desperate effort
to throttle it in the campaign there. It
is tho one vital issue before the coun
try. Without restoration of the .money
of the Constitution the people never ngain
can achievepiosperlty. Gold andMonopoly
do not wish them to. Heuco this super
human attempt to neutralize and after
ward to monometalllzo the Democratic
party, that the political questions of 1900
may notincliulo gold. Thus it w'as worked
in 1802, and what conditions have fol
lowed in consequence?
Premonitory symptoms ot trouble In the
British Indian empire again are reported.
In the Chitral, a district south of the Hin
doo Koosu and doniinatingimportant passes
to tho Russian sphere of influence on the
north, the Mohammedan tribesmen have
broken out, and a "Jehad," or holy war,
has been declared. A British force has
been attacked, has sustained some loss, and
further hostilities are expected. The prob
able connection between Buch movements
and the current situation of the Eastern
question would seem to be lather appar
ent. Information comes to hand that Great
Britain is pushing the fortification ot
Halifax, and preparing to add largely to the
artillery and generally the military estab
liehments of tlie Eastern Provinces and
Canada Does this mean war, or only
The St. James Gazette ot London thinks
that the latent note of Japan is a polite
way of intimating to this country that we
must abandon our Hawaiian pretensions
or fight. It it i. Japan alone that we must
fight In thnt alternative, the note means
nothing of the kind. If Japan has a secret
European backing, with avlewto fight, then
Europe might as well know that the
American people would accept the re
sponsibility and the row , with all the pleas
ure in life.
, In the interpretation of the tax on edible
plums in the Hanna tariff bill, there
is liable to be much dislocation of brains
and patience between importers and cus
toms officrs. The general enacting clause
of the measure, covering all kinds of plums,
monopolistic and bountirul to trusts and
favored interests, is bo plain that there
can be uo doubt whatever about its being
completely understood by all citizens.
THE rmLlPPJNE REBELLION.
Advices Show It to Bo Stronger
Madrid, July 28. Mall advices from the
Philippine Islands show that the insurrec
tion there, instead of Leing about quelled,
aB the official dispatches claim, is strong
er than ever. The battle at Puray, which
took ulace on June 15, as was cabled to
The Washington Times, turns out to have
bec-n most disastrous to the Spanish arms.
The Tebela, who numbered -4,000 men,
under the command of Chiefs Llanera and
Emilio Agulnaldo, almost annihilated ono
of the two Spanish columns operating
The Spaniards were commanded byCapt.
Gen. Piimo de JRlvera and Gen. Dujiolo.
Their losses were four officers and fifty
men killed and eighty wounded, whllo
many were captured by the rebels.
Far from being subdued, as has been
officially cabled from Manila, Agulnaldo
Is triumphant at SIbul, where he is at the
head of 5,000 men.
WILLTAII if. DAYTON DEAD.
Sudden" End of n Prominent Judicial
Officer of New Jersey.
Trenton, N J., July 28. William L
Dayton, Judge of the court ot errors and
appeals, died at noon today from a stroko
of apoplexy, with winch he waB sized
in his office two hours before.
Judge Dayton came from Bay Head
this morning and was apparently in the
best of health until the moment he was
stricken. His wife is the eldest daughter
of Gen Robert F. Stockton.
Judge Dayton was the son of the late
William Dayton, who was justice of the
supreme court of New Jersey, United States
minister to Paris, United States Senator,
and Republican candidate for Vice Presi

died of apoplexy at exactly the same
age as his son, who was fifty-seven.

President McKlnley is gradually taking
care of the members of his family. In
the appointment yesterday of Audrew J.
Duncan, of Cleveland, Ohio, to be an
Indian inspector, he puts into office one
ot his brothers-in-law, Mr. Duucan being
the husband ot Mrs. McKinley's sister.
Mr. Duncan, during thelast administration
of McKlnley as governor and during Gov.
Eusuncll's term, has been in the office of
the 01U6 commissioner of Insurance and
lu charge of the work relating to build
lug ami foan assoilatlons. This service
naturally equips him for the onerous duties
or Indian inspector. With Cousin Osborne
djawiug one ot the fattest salaries abroad;
another, but more humble, cousin slated
for a postinastersliip in Illinois, and
Brother in-law Duucan among the Indians,
not to mention oiie or two other insignifi
cant appointments, the family is begin
ning to have a reasonable 1 epresentation
on tlie Government puy roll.
Auothcr personal appointment was made
yesterday when Dauiel Swiney, of Ohio,
was appointed consul to Cork, Ireland.
It took a long search among the Ohio
politicians to ;iud. out who Mr. Swiney
was. He had. never been in politics; had
never atteudect a convention that any one
knew of, had not been identified with
party politics in Ohio at all. Ho is well
advanced in year's, a quiet, unostenta
tious citizen of Canton, and the immediate
neighbor of hie 'President. Mr. and
Mrs. Mclvlnley(, admire the old man and
thought it would be a nice thing to
send him abroad. Hence his appoint
ment. The tariff bill is now printed in English,
French, Spanish und Portuguese. Tho
translation was mada by the Bureau ot

Vest believed that Mr. Sapp had something'
to do with this, but when, subsequently,

Miss Barrett TTaed Some of Her
Boston, July 28. -At the inquest held
today it developed the fact that Miss Alice
Barrett, who committed suicide last Sat
urday, embezzled a sum ot money from her
employers, Codman & Codnian. Walter M.
Briggs, a clerk, testified before Fire
Marshal Whiteomb that on Saturday morn
iug Miss Barrett received $200 from the
Bailey estate, and .she should have placed
ir. In the safe, but It was not found there.
Miss Barrett made a record of it In the
ledger. The cash book was destroyed by
Miss Barrett The supposition Is that
Miss Barrett did not Intend to steal the
money. If she had .she probably would
not have made an entry of it in the ledger.
After leaving the office, she probably
met some one. They returned to the
office, and Miss Barrett opened the safe
and took the money. After giving it to
thu party she was stricken with remorse,
destroyed the cash-book and then shot
herself. Mrs. Barrett, mother of Alice,
declined to testify unless the fire marshal
agreed to keep her testimony secret It
Is understood, however, that she told the
marshal the name of the man that In
vested the $800 foi Alice, but he will
not divulge it at present.
CAR JUMPS THE TRACK.
Delay Cnused on the Mount Vernon
and Southern Lines.
Electric train No. 210, of the Washing
ton, Alexandria and Mount Vernon Rail
way, while rounding the curve at the
entrance to the city, Just after crossing
the Long Bridge, at 8:15 o'clock yester
day morning, was thrown completely across
the main track by the spreading of the
rails beneath the rear coach. All traffic
to the south was completely blocked for
a brief time.
A wroctcing crew was quickly on hand,
and the work of raising the train and
clearing the tracks was begun. Several
Southern trains were, however, blocked at
the south end of the Long Bridge- and
several hundred clerks and business men
encountered a tedious delay.
After an hour's wait, during which the
unfortunate passengers were quite free in
giving vent to thefr chagrin, the party
started on a walk to the city.
All trains to the South were delayed,
making it Impossible to resume travoi
according to the regular schedule until
late in the afternoon. No one was hurt.

Standi the ground's your own, mybravesl
Will ye give it up to .slaves?
Will ye look for greener graves?
Hope ye mercy still?
What's the mercy despots feel?
Hear It In that battle peall
Read It on yon bristling steel!
Ask it ye who will.
Fear ye foes who kill for hire?
Will ye to your homes retire?
Look behind youi-ihey're afircl
And, before you, see .
Who have done it! From the vale
On they come'.-and will ye quail?
Leaden rain and iron hail
Let their welcome be!
In the God or battles trust!
Die we may and die we must:
But, oh, where can dust to dust
Be consign'd so well,
As where heaven its dews shall shed
On the martyred patriot's bed.
And the Tocks shall raise their head
Of his deeds to tell?
