Of course WashinIton was the most
interesting as well as the most inport
ant place which we visited. Wherever
we went flags were waving. The wind
that bloweth where it listeth seemed to
have an especially patriotic tendeney to
wave the Stars and Stripes-America s
own breezes waving Ameriea's own flag.
Red, white and blue could not be lost
sieht of. These colors were seen on
belts and the belts were worn where
patriotic American eyes love to wander.
They were seen on scarfs and cravats.
waists. shirts. bills or fare. pencils
everywhere. I even saw a elestial's
laundry sign which read On Wah.
and gave him credit for the prevailint
spirit. Soldiers were nuierous. -1Sl
diers and sailors. too. Twn -ty -ive
thousand teachers were here. a~nd they
came from all sections of our country.
They did not understand t'he art of con
bining business and pleasure. The
faces of many recalled the Frenehmn'sn
remark which I have previously refer
red to. And while starvation wa at
Havana. while death and destruction
were at Santiago. while consternation
and anarchy almost reigned at MIadrid.
only the reverse of them were seen at
our nation-s Capital.
WASHINGToN LANDMARKS-- lLD AND
As one approaches Washington the
same old land marks grreet the eye of
those to whom the scene is at all famnil
iar. The massive and towering donie
of the Capitol rises above the great gray
granite walls of the Governnient build
ings, all telling of our earlier gzrowtn.
Then typical of a later day..the clear
cut and heavenward reaching marble
point of the Washington monument
speaks again of enlarged growth and of
a people's growing recognition of; their
own grcatness. And now. annui these
grand older landmarks which so well
befitted their day and time. and which
grow only more impressive withi the
years. is seen the grander growth of to
day. From afar the golden, glittering
head of the library of Congress gives
forth its rays of' gleaming beauty and
of splendor. Superbly magnificent in
its conception. gorgeously beautiful in
the finish of every detail, as delicately
artistic as it is noble in its stately grani
deur, it is at once the flower and the
fruit of that from whence and for
which it came. that which is of no
greater promise in any country-the
intellectual life and development of a
powerful young nation. And still are
other landmarks becoming visible. The
ne~w home of the famous Coreoran Art
Gallery-the white marble palace dedi
cated to art alone, is as well worthy of
the treasnres it holds as it is of the
spirit which it reveals Thiis buildingZ
has that crowing grace of architecture.
perfect sympathy of propor tions. And
the artists whose treasures it holds were
no truer votories of their calling than
were those who platnned this ideal
structure, those who poished its cor
ners. who sculptured. and ehiseled its
delicate beauties and wh~ose hand and
braiq gave such finish to such a pure.
white marble home for art.
Our nation-s Capital City peculiarly
embodies and emphasizes the principles
for which it stands. and, like American
institutions generally, is truly all Ame
rican. These institutions come fromi
the people, they stand for the people.
Washington. in its own concentrative
power, speaks of tihe strength of its
builders and makers: its growing gran
duer typifies the increasing and stately
life of a nation which i urely destined
for fame immortal: its independence
blood-stained from the beginning. but
blood-stained ini the catuse of humanity
and of freedom-is emp'hasized more
than ever today and this independenee.
like all its other lories, comes back to
and radiates from American men and
women. It stands the national embod
iment of the sentiment of. by and for
the people. And with the noble Poto
mac on one side. with glorious MIount
Vernon and with equally glorieus but
sad Arlington, standing sentinel-like on
the adjacent heights. it has all now to
bind a people together.

A STEAMER BURNED.
How the Eagle Pluckily Destroyed
the Big Spanish.
A FINE AUXILIARY CRUISER.
Lost Vessel Carried Big Guns, but
Did Not Attempt to Use Them.
People Aboard Were All
Saved by a River
The Spanish Trans-Atlantic San Do
mingo. of 3.5o tons, was totally des
troyed by the little auxiliary gunboat
Eagle on July 12, off Cape Francis.
This intelligence was brought to Key
West Wedndesday by the Nashville,
whicb came up after the attack and
found the Spanish ship burned -aud
smashed on the reefs.
The affair offers a striking comment
ary on the difference betwecn American
and Spanish spirit. The San Domingo
had two 5-inch guns mounted and
loaded. her magazines were open and it
only remained to train her guns and
fire them to blow the Eagle out of the
sea. But the latter. with her compara
tively feeble battery of 6-pounders,
steamed to within two miles of the en
emy and pounded shot after shot into
her until she turned and, in a desper
ate attempt to get into the narrow
channel, grounded on the reef without
having tried to return the American
Seventy shots were fired by the Eagle
and nearly all took effect. When the
Spanish ship went ashore a river stea
mer came out and took off her officers
and crew. Then the Eagle sent a crew
to board her, and there were shouts of
surprise when the big guns were dis
cove- 3d. She also carried in her hold
two 12-inch guns.
The cargo was largely of grain and
food supplies. Fifty head of cattle
were penned on the decks. She had
been drawing 24 feet of water and went
aground in *_J. The Eagle's men deci
ded that she was too far gone to be
floated and. after shooting the cattle,
they set tire to her and watched her
The same steamer again ran out to
try to get off sonic of thc cargo, but.
was baffled by the -flames. Thle San
Domingo burned for three days arid
was lcft a charred and mnishappen
wreck. She was one of the best stea
mers of the enemy and had been used
as an auxiliary cruiser.
According to the San DLomingo's pa
pers she was bound from Vera Cruz.
31exico. for New York via Savannah,
but of' course being a regular Spanish
liner. the mo4'tion of New York in hecr
manifest is a palpable sufterfugre. the
intentiori having been to gain sonme
Cuban port and to put the guns arnd
provisions ini the hands of the beleau
guered Spaniards. With the 3Iontevi
deo she slipped out of liabana hiarb~or
and got away about a tuonth ago when
the blockade had been weakened by
utilizing the ships of the station as
convoys for troopships to Santiago.
Notice to watch for her had been sent
to all ships ohf the sqjuadran anrd rno ves
sel could have escaped the fate which
TJhc people ef this country will learn
with surprise arnd disgust that only one
niewspapler in Venezuela favors the.
Unritcd States against Spain. That one
paper is edited by an Englhishmnan, a.
man who comes from a country against.
which we took the part of Venezuela.
less than three years ago. The greneral
tenor of the Venezuelan press is exerm
plified ini assertion of the heading
inewspaper of Caracas. that after this war
is over ' 'the naval policy of Washing
ton will be felt in its utmost rigor ini
the whole of Latin America. arid es
pecially in those republics that coast
the CarribUbean sea. Thle Americans
are engaged ini a war of foreign cupidity
arid we do not hesitate to declare that,
all our opuinionis. con victions and good
wishes are on the siue of Spain.~ Was
there ever a more disgraceful exhibition
of national ingratituue.
