GEN. JAS. A. WALKER,
Of Wythe County.
THURSDAY, Al'Gl'ST 4, 1S9S.
WHAT SHALL THE. TERMS BE?
It is now pretty well settled that peace
will be made in a short time between Spain
and the United States. It is also well set?
tled as to what the terms will.be, with the
exception of the disposition of the Philip?
pines. .Spain will .have to renounce art
claim to Cuba and cede"fbrto Rico to our
government. These results have been in?
evitable from the very beginning of the
conflict. What the future of Cuba will be
will not and cannot yet be determined. It
?will "be made free from Spanish rule and
relieved from the burdensome debt which
its oppressors has fixed upon it. We may
rest assured that the United States will re?
deem its pledge of giving to the people of
the island a stable, good government
which will be independent when all classes
of people of the island shall be prepared
When the war was commenced few per?
sons, if any, realized that the first battle
would be fought and the first conquest
made in the East. But the unexpected
came and we are now in control of the
great city of Manila, in the Philippines,
and also of the Ladrone Islands. The
question L? what will we do with them ?
Whether it is best or not the public mind
Heems to be made up that we should hold
Manila and the Ladrones. Since the be?
ginning of the war it has been demon?
strated that the policy of the United
States Bhould be to control the trade of
the Orient as far as possible in the future.
For the base of such a trade and for a
coaling station and dock yard for our Pa?
cific squadron Manila is the very place we
need. It is already a great city, situated
on a magnificent bay, can be easily forti?
fied so strongly that it would be secure
from the assaults of a most formidable
foe. It is the gate through which the
$25,000,000 exports and imports of the
Philippines have been flowing,and through
which they would continue to flow if the
United States should hold the city in the
future. It will become the rival of Ilonp
Kong in the trade of the "Orient."
It, therefore, eeems best that the United
States should hold Manila, but nothing
more in the Philippines. It should alsc
be provided in our treaty of peace with
V Spain that Spanish oppression should
cease in the Philippines and protection be
given, to Aguinaldo and his insurgent fob
In the settlement of all these vexed
questions we have the most implicit faith
and confidence in President" McKinley.
He has shown himself equal to every
emergency that has arisen since the re?
sponsibility of war was thrust upon him,
He is in a position to know what the
country needs and what it should demand.
We are willing to trust him with its ad

BEANS VS. BULLETS.

Weapon Against the Spaniards.
St. Louis ?'Republic" (Dem.].
There is something quite refreshing
about the way the SpaniB.i garrissons in
: Eastern Cuba are surrendering. All that
seems to be necessary to convince them oi
the desirability of becoming prisoners of
p war with a promise of a free ride to Spain
is a glimpse of Toral's army at Santiago.
Lieutenant. Miley, of General Shafter'e
! staff, makes a little excursion almost daily
to Palma, Soriano, Hongo or some other
fortress in the interior and gives a glowing
account of the surrender idea. The Span?
ish officers want to see for themselvse.
They return with Miley to Santiago. There
is a tantalizing odor of American bacon
and beans banging over the city. In the
cafes and saloons there is much gayety and
many rounds of free drinks.
Then there is a certainty of a speedy re?
turn to mother, home and friends. We
can fancy the wily Miley saying, "Have
one with me, Senor," as he prepares to
bid good-bye to his guests. Certain it is
that they gallop back to their mates, and
surrender follows just as surely. This
mode of procedure reflects great credit
upon Spanish intelligence. It shows that
the Dons know a good thing when they
see it and are -pushing it along. The diet
furnished to the prisoners by the Ameri?
can commissary is said to have a remarka?
ble effect upon them. Many are showing
a desire to become citizens of the United
States or to remain in Cuba under the de?
lightful conditions now prevailing in and
Bacon and beans, not bullets, may be
the ammunition of the bloodless war of
the future. ?
HOW THE FEVER STARTED.
Carried to Our Soldiers in their Own
ChicagoT July 29. -The first definite
statement was made to-day as to how yel
IdwTever was brought into the ranks of
the American army in Cuba. Mr. II. L.
Beach, who represented the Associated
Press along the fighting line at Santiago,
made the statement as follows :
"It is an actual fact,?something I saw
with my own'eyes,?that our army ambu
lnnces were used to carry Cuban refugees
who had lied from Santiago and who were
carrying tha germs of the dread fever
with them. The people waded through
the mud and were picked up by the ambu?
lances. But, worst of all it seems to me,
is the fact that the ^commissary ivagons
which always were going to Siboney and
back carrying food, returned loaded with
refugees and went back again loaded with
food. ? No yellow fever uppeared in the
army before the hues were open to these
people from Santiago.
The Klondike Output.
it is difficult to decide whether the dis?
appointing reports printed concerning the
Klondike output of gold for the season are
true or whether they arc put out for ef?
fect. When the season opened it was con?
fidently predicted that the yield would be
from $20,000,000 to $30,000,000 in gold.
Some placed it as high as $40,000,000.
But now good authorities are claiming
that the product of the mines will not ag?
gregate over $15,000,000 and that if may
fall as low as $10,000,000. If the latter
claim is justified and no good explanation
is given it will be concluded that either
the richness of the Klondike mines had
been exaggerated or that the difficulties
of mining had been underestimated.
There are eome arguments going to
prove that the output may be found to be
$20,01)0,000 as was estimated early in the
season. A Klondike correspondent of the
San Francisco "Chronicle" claims that it
will be, and while his reasons do not ar?
gue well for the honesty of the miners
they are worthy of notice. He asserts
that the policy of the Canadian Govern?
ment in demanding a royalty of 10 per
cent, on all the gold mined in the Domin
' Tfrn has led many of the miners to conceal
the full amount of their earninge. Up to
June the amount collected on this tax by
the Government was stated to be $090,000,
which would mean a product of less than
$7,000,000. - Whether enough more has
been concealed by the miners and pro?
duced on United States territoiy to carry
the output to $15,000,000 or over is a
There are reasons to explain the dis?
appointment in the amount of gold mined
in the Klondike, if there really turns out
to be a disappointment. The war with
Spain has drawn much attention away
from the Klondike and chnnged the plane
of many men who intended to go there.
The expeditions' to the Philippine Islands
have ppered a field to the adventurous on
the Pacific Coast who otherwise would
have found a field in the Klondike. Tide
left the numbers of miners less than was
anticipated. Then the difficulties of min?
ing were also underestimated, it is proba?
ble. These were not fully realized by the
thousands who heard only of the sacks of
gold dust brought back and who imagined
that it was necessary only to dig to lind
the nuggets. A third reason given for the
?small output is the insufficiency of nour?
But no one of these reasons or all of
them put together prove that the Klon?
dike region is not to become a great min?
ing camp and probably the richest in the
world. The work done so far is only pre?
liminary. The surface has been scratched
and the difficulties found out. With the
proof that there is gold in that Territory
and in paying uuantities the means of get?
ting there and of working the placers will
certainly be improved, Methods for over?
coming the rigors of the climate will be in?
troduced and means of conimunteation
will be made quicker and safer. The Cana?
dian Government may also see see the*"wis
dom of annulling the lav Jaying a tax of
10 per cent, on all gold mined and which
acts as a damper on enterprise. But
where there is gold to be had ways will
be found to get it and the Klondike region
will be found to be no exception.
There is no better way to clear away
the difficulties than to fully understand
them. The past season has shown the
perils and obstacles in the way of getting
to the Klondike. The trials to overcome
after a miner has reached there ard not sc
well known. Subsistence is one of the
chief difficulties. With meals costing
$2.50 each.cigars 50 cents,eggs $3 a dozen,
orangeB$l each, pure water 50 cents n
bycket, new potatoes $1 a nound, fresh
meat $1 a pound and Hour $1 to $10 *a
sack the price of living can be estimated.
Another reason that may be influential is
that the authorities enforce a Sunday ob?
servance law and any person convicted of
laboring on the Sabbath day is fined $15.
All gambling places, stores, sawmills and
mines are rigidly closed on Sunday. The
future of the Klondike as a mining coun?
try is assured. With the close of the war
with Spain a number of adventurous
spirits will be released and seeking a field
of operations. There can be no doubt
thut Alaska will receive from theu) its due
attention and that the output of gold will

President Don't Fret.
Jioston Journal. ]
There is one public man who is not
theorizing and fretting as to the problemst
which the war will bring in its train.
That man is the President of the United
States. "President McKinley," says
"Coolidge," the Journal's correspondent
in Washington, "has always been - a good
and patient waiter. He is not deaf to the
discussion wiiich is going on in the press
as to the future of the island possessions
which, as a result of the war, ure coming
into our control. He is not indifferent to
the suggestions as to our duty toward
these new-acquired territories wiiich are
ctowding in upon him. But "he looks to
the God of mtionB and the universe for
his guidance, and he is willing to leave all
the future policies regarding the Philip?
pines, Porto Kico and other Spanish pos?
sessions that have been and must be taken
by our arms until the war will have been
ended ami an honorable peace secured."
To every request to express Iiis own opin?
ion as to these things the President replies
that "we are not yet through with the
war?we have only begun it." His ener?
gies are concencrated on caring for our
army and our Heet and upholding them
as they move restlessly on from one vic?
tory to another. His mind is devoted to
the work immediately before him. Presi
i dent McKinley's position is the eame and
Less Liquor Drinking.
The bulletin for the Federal depart?
ment of labor for July gives figures to
show that there has been a large decrease
in the consumption of intoxicating liquore
by the people of this country. In 1880
the consumption of dietilled spirits in the
1 United States was 2\ gallons for every
man, woman and child; in 189G it was less
than one gallon. Such a decrease in the
twe of strong drink probably never oc?
curred before among any people. There
1 has also been a decrease in the use of wine
' in this country. The per capita consump?
tion of wine in 1880 was .29 of a gallon,
and in 1896 it was .26 of a gallon.
[ But while there has been some decrease
in the use of wine and a very great de?
crease in the use of whisky, brandy, gin
and other spirits, the consumption of betr
has increased immensely. ?.
In 1890 no less than 1,170,379,448 gal?
lons of beer were used in this country.
The beer used for medicines, in cooking
and for other purposes except drinking is
comparatively very small. The great buls
of the beer consumed in 1896 was drunk.
The per capita consumption of beer in
1880 was only 1.36 gallons. By 1896 it
: bad increased to 15.16 gallons. ?
In spite of this fact there is good rea?
son to believe that there has been a great
growth of temperance among our people
during the past eighteen years. Their
larger use of mild drinkB is more than
compensated for by the great reduction
of the quantity of strong and fiery liquors.
; Commenting upon the fact that several
[ public houses in England are conducted
i by clergymen, The London Chronicle
says: "The first known to enter on this
? new line was the Kev. Osbert Mordaunt,
1 rector of Hampton Lucy. Stratford-on
! Avon, who has managed the local inn for
; twenty years, the profits of which go to
; local charities. The Kev. F. Willett, of
i Scaynes Hill, Sussex, runs on similar lines,
> and the working lias reduced drunkenness
- to a vanishing point, for the manager re
?> fuses drink when he thinks the bibber lias
; iiad enough."
