BAfTLE OF MANILA.
Twelve months ago the great naval
battle took place in Manila b~ay. It
was on the first day of May that
Dewey astounded the world by his
wonderful success in destroying Mon
tejo's fleet, without losing an Ameri
can sailor or an Amer.can ship. It
was Dewey's guns that planted the
Stars and Stripes on Asiatic soil, and
by doing so placed the United States
on the list of world powers. It was
a mnagnificient feat of arms, and in the
language of thc Charleston Post
"There are some who say the Manila
triumph was a small affair, and that
Dewev's victory was a foregone con
elusion of the engagement. Such is
the view expressed by some Germans
now. But when Dewey's squadron
sailed from Hong Kong for the Phil
ippines, the German officers at that
port, with nearly all others, regarded
the sally as a rather desperate affair,
for the Americans. And we must be
gin our consideration of the exploit
at the point of sailing from Hong
Kong, not from the time when the
McCullough. returned to the English
port with news of the victory. It is
clear enough now that Dewey was
sure to win, but who would have said
as muzh when the commodore sailed
"TheAmerican fleet entered the har
bor of Manila with the prospect that
complete victory only would save it
from annihilation. A partial success
would net have served. The ships
were thousands of miles from their
home ports, other stations were closed
to them, most of the nations were un
friendly disposed to their colors. If
they failed to destroy the enemy's
fleet and make a station at Manila,
they could get no supplies and would
be practically helpless. The harbor
of Manila was presumably fortified
and guarded against hostile approach.
It should have been. It was a place
readily defended. With expectation
that the Spaniards had taken all pre
cautions that reason would dictate,
Commodore Dewey headed his fleet
into the harbor's mouth, past the
frowning Corregidor and into the
broad bay. Safely through the nar
row channel, he formed his ships in
battle line, swept forth and back
along the enemy's position, and shot
the ships of Spain to pieces. All the
time his vessels were engaged by the
shore batteries, by no means to be
despised. These were silenced and
taken in possession. And all of this
without loss of a man and with prac
tically no damage to the ships of the

The government is taking steps to
stop literature from going through
the mails -which has a tendency to
cause the soldiers in the Philippines
to become dissatisfied. The ground
is taken that literature criticising the
administration's war policy adversely,
is not proper to fall into the hands of
men in the service.
The Charleston News and Courier
was an important factor in the deal
which brought the Southern to Char
leston, and the business community
and property owners of that city
should appreciate it. There is no
gain saying it, the News and Courier
may not always think like us in pol
itics, but when it comes to business,
and the commercial interests of Char
leston, there is no harder worker to be
found anywhere. We congratulate
the News and Courier and Charleston
for the recent windfall to lower Caro
The great Southern Rail Road Com
pany has leased the South Carolina

Charleston is given the very desira
ble position of having the gates of
competition thrown open for her, and
with this advantage we see no reason
why Charleston shall longer remain
the tail end of the progressive com
mercial procession. The Atlantic
Coast Line, and the Southern com
peting with each other, together with
a magnificient harbor where the ships
of the world may enter, is bound to
wake upCharleston and help the entire
lower portion of South Carolina.
With her additional facilities the mon
eyed people of the city should go to
work right away to recover her lost
patronage, and turn the flow of cotton
from Wilmington back to Charleston
where it naturally belongs. We con
gratulate Charleston upon her pros
The war despatches for the past
few days indicate a cessation of hos
tilities in the Philippines. Overtures
for peace have been made to General
Otis, by representatives ot Aguinaldo,
and rejected because Otis declined to
recognize the Filipino government.
He demanded an unconditional sur
render which was taken under ad
visement. The Filipinos are willing
to lay down their arms if our govern
ment will give them their indepen
dence with an American protectorate,
a government and a relationship sim
ilar to that which exists in Canada.
It is clear that General Otis does not
intend to agree to any thing short of
an absolute surrender, regardless of
what the claims have heretofore been.
The Filipinos fired upon American
soldiers, and they must give up their
all, and take what we are disposed to
give them. By the time Uncle Sam's
Krag-Jorgensen missionaries finish
pleading with the Filipino savages to
become civilized, the islands will be
in excellent condition to receive Chi
nese emigration. The war in the
Philippines is not ended yet, nor will
it be for years to come; there may be
a temporary hold-up, but it will break
Uncle Sam celebrated "Dewey Day"
last Monday, by paying Alphonso
$20,000,000 in accordance with the
promise made for the cession of the
Philippine Islands in the Paris treaty.
Uncle Sam banded the chauge over
to M. Cambon the French Ambassa
dor, who is representing Spain at
present. Now that our philanthropic
Ruler, has bought and paid for the
Philippine Islands, Alphonso ought to
be required to put him in possession.
However we must not only pay, but
we must give up a lot of lives and
more money before we can get into
the promise land.
The Filipinos have expressed a de
sire to stop fighting, and we have no
doubt that they are about run out of
ammunition and supplies, but they
want to govern themselves, even with
the United States overseeing the
work; as we understand it, their
proposition was rejected, and in place
of it, this government is willing to
give the Filipinos a chance to see if
they know how to govern themselves,
of course reserving the right to judge.
It seems to us that there is very little
difference, and before many weeks an
adjustment will be had. Will this
stop war in the Philippines? We
doubt it exceedingly. Spain tried va
rious ways to pacify her Colonial po
sessions, and all of her efforts failed,
as fast as one method was introduc
ed, a new outbreak occurred, and
thousands of lives and millions of
treasure was fruitlessly spent. The
United States may be able to pre
vent a repetition of Spain's experi
ence. We hope so.

(From our Regular Correspondent )
Washington, April 21.-"Like mas
ter like man." Secretary Alger's fight
upon Gen. Miles has mostly been of
an underhanded nature, so it is not
very surprising that the report of the
Military Co urL of Irnquiry, now in Mr.
McKmley's hands, should seek to
make its attack upon Gen. Miles seem
fair by jumping on a few minor com
missary officers and recommending
that they be court-martialed for neg
lecting their duty in connection with
the beef supplied to the army a neg
lect that the report says was extreme
ly profitable to the beef contractors.
This thing isn't done with. Gen.
Miles was completely vindicated by
the evidence taken and he intends to
keep on fighting until his vindication
is officially recognized, and he has
been assured of support by promi
nent men in Congress, some of them
republicans. He has known from
the first that the personal enmity of
two men connected with the Court of
Inquiry would have prevented his
getting fair treatment, even with Sec
retary Alger's influence against him
left out of consideration.
Political pull was stronger with Mr.
McKinley than his friendship for
General Joe WVheeler; consequently
"Fighting Joe's" application for ac
tive service in the Philippines was
turned down, and that eminent polit
ical warrior Fred. Grant, chosen as
one of the three Brigadier Generals
that are to be sent to the Philippines
at once; the other two being Bates,
who has just been detached from the
command of the Santa Clara province
Cuba, and Young, who has been su
pervising the mustering out of volun
teers in the South. General Wheeler
has repeatedly said that he would re
sign his commission if he could not
get active service, but it is stated that
he is to be offered command of the
Department of Texas, which is to be
revived. If General Wheeler accepts
this command, it will be an indication
that there is something in the story
f his expecting to be appointed Brig
dier General in the regular army.
Things are far from being satisfacto
ry in Porto Rico. Thirty-nine deaths
[rom starvation have been officially
reported from a single province since
the free government rations were sus
pended, and 100,000 are reported to
be continuously hungry. It is pro
posed by the Red Cross to establish
depots in the large cities for the sale
of Porto Rican products for the ben
stuff will be given by Porto Rican
planters and merchants and brought
to the U. S. free by the Porto Rican
steamship Co., if this government will
allow them to be brought in without
payment of duty.
In deciding to reprimand Captain
Coghian, of the cruiser Raleigh, be
cause he told a story that was pub
lished all over the world nearly a year
ago, in what he supposed to be the
privacy of a club room, in New York,
Secretary Long and the administra
tion added nothing to their populari
ty. It looks to much like truckling
to the German Government to please
the average American. It was un
necessary for Secretary Hay to have
taken the proper stand in telling the
German Ambassador, when he called
at the State Department to make a
protest, in the name of his goveru
ment, that Captain Coghlan had
spoken as an individual at a pri
vate gathering of friends, and with
no expectation that what he said was
to be published, and that this govern
ment would take no official cogni
zance of the matter, if the Navy De
partment was to punish Captain
Coghlan. It looked to much like
Secretary Hay made a bluff for pub
lie consumption, and then privately
assured the German Ambassador that
Captain Coghlan would be punished.
That doesn't square with the Ameri
can idea of straight forwardness. If
that sort of thing is kept up our army
and navy officers will be afraid to talk
among their friends, until each of
them has been sworn not to give his
remarks to a newspaper.
Representative Grosvenor has been
given a straight tip from headquar
ters not to become a candidate for
the Speakership of the House because
Boss Hanna had decided that the ad
ministration could not afford to put
an Ohio man in that position. The
talk about Grosvenor having decided
not to become a candidate because
he thought Ohio w.. already suffi
ciently provided with big political
hopors is all bosh. It was a case of
Hanna, not diffidence.
Surely Alger is surely to be pitied
now! Jay Hubbell, of Mich., whose
political methods were too bad even
for the republican party, whose noto
rious connection with the forced as
sessing of government employees in
the Garfield campaign, when Hubbell
was at the head of the Republican
Congressional Campaign Committee,
has not been forgotton, floated into
Washington this week and gave Al
ger a public endorsement, through a
newspaper interview. Of course,
Hubbell endorses Alger; they are
birds of a feather, but among decent
people his endorsement does more
harm than would his condemnation.
by the way, it has been much com
mented upon that Alger was the only
member of the Cabinet in Washing
ton who did not accompany the Pres
idential party that went to Philadel
phia, to see the Grant Monument un
veiled. It is said that Mr. McKinley
did not ask him.

and as the sweet strains of Lohen

fully rendered by Mrs. P. M. Sally,
the two sweet little flower girls,
Misses Mamie and May Griffin, cou
sins of the bride, led the procession,
and marching up under the beauti
ful wedding bell that hung near the
center of the pulpit for the couple,
each took hold of the banners that
enfolded the bell and hoisted them
in great taste, while the ushers,
Messrs. N. L. Broughton and R. S.

bridal party, and under the sweet

Lela Geddings, with Mr. W. J. Ep

and maid of honor, Miss Minnie Grif
fin, and the groom and best man, Mr.
D. R. Lide, and entering under the
pretty arch they were happily made
man and wife.
The bride wore a handsome attire
of white Persian lawn trimmed in
white satin ribbon, pearl beading,
made en train, carrying a bouquet of
white carnation roses in her hand.
The maids of honor each wore pretty
dresses of white organdie over pink,
trimmed in pink satin ribbon, with
white roses in their hair. The little
flower girls were attired in pretty
white dresses trimmed with pink rib
bon and flowers in their hair.
The groom and groomsmen wore
full evening suits, and the whole out
fit made a beautiful spectacle within
the eyes of the assembled spectators.
The church was beautifully deco
rated by the admiring friends of the
couple, with live plants and ever
greens, which, when lighted up,
made a pretty appearance, and we
certainly extend congratulations to
the kind helpers for their great taste.
