FLAGSTAFF, APRIL .'10, 18!)S.
TlIEKE is no excitement In Flagstaff,
but the patriotic enthusiasm is un
bounded. There are more United
States Hags flying than on tlie Fourth
of July. There is but one sentiment
expressed, t hut the fighting be started
at once and pustied to a speedy and
One of tho busiest departments of
the Brooklyn navy yard is that where
the United States flags are manufac
tured. Throughout tho whole twenty -four
hours, relays of men and girls are
employed in cutting out and putting to
gether tho stars and stripes. Each
Hag roust pass the final inspection of an
old sailor, who has been long employed
for this purpose, and is noted for his
careful requirements. It is a congen
ial occupation for an old lighter of the
I S. were signers of tho European treaty
prohibiting the issuing of letteis of
niai-quo and reprisal to privateurs by
nations engaged in war, it has been
' decided by this government not to is
sue such letters and not to countenance
I privateering. This decision, which is
a tacit recognition of F.uropean anti
privateering treat, will probably re
! suit in preventing Spain from going
I into privateering to any extent, be
cause her doing so would inlliet more
real damage upon the commerce of
i European nations than upon that of the
i U. S. and that she knows would not be
allowed by the European government.

Nichols, member of the live stock
sanitary board, says the Itange News,
that at Its recent meeting tho liainl

in process of manufacture at $2..() each.
This sum will cover tho cost of ostago
and of the supplementary leaves which
are to bo prepared and issued from
time to time to keep tho book up to
date. In view of the value of tho book
the price is not unreasonable and the
work should have a largo sale.
TlIEltE is no organized effort to push
along the idea of a world-controlling
alliance of the English speaking peo
ples, but tho idea seems to be going
ahead with its own momentum, aided
by circumstances, such as the general
tone of the English press and recent
announcements by the British govern
ment showing its sympathy with the
Cuban jiollcy of tho U. S. and its ob
ject. The idea catches the peace sup
porters, because of their belief that
such an alliance would bo powerful
enough to maintain universal peace,
and the lighting element, because it
would bo strong enough to lick all crea
tion. It is the belief of well-informed
persons that the question of forming
an Anglo-American alliance is likely
to become a very lively one before the
end of the war witli Spain. This tnaj
or may not be true, but the subject is
being discussed very much in Washington.
