THE SPANISH ARHY.
IU StreiiKI ltoon Very Much Over
It is scarcely to be wondered at
that the Spanish peasant tries his
utmost to evade the conscription,
for his treament from the moment
he dons his country's uniform until
the moment he is discharged is of
the vilest. He is bullied by his offl-
cers, III treated ny nis "noncoms '

For theft the penalties are as fol

not exceed 10 reals (2s), imprison
ment with hard labor for three
years: from 10 to 200 reals (2s to
2), 10 years' imprisonment; above
200 reals, death or hard labor for
life. In the Spanish military code
of laws there are over 80 crimes,
many of them of the most trivial na
ture, which are punishable by death.
Nevertheless, organized military
revolts, known as "pronunciamen
tos" are exceedingly common, and
the entire army is said to be honey
combed by secret revolutionary so

Spantsii army at the present mo
ment is believed to be not more than
about 200.000 men. and of this num

EX.liOV. SEXTER DEAD.
Liberator" ot the Kx-Confmlerate
Panned Away In Morrlnlown.
Ex. Gov. DeWitt C. Senter died
Wednesday at his home at Morris
town, Tenn. Ex-Gv. Henter has
been little heard from in public life
for many years, but at one time he
figured prominently in State poll
tics. Gov. Brownlow was. in 18(58,
elected to the United Rtates Senate,
and Mr. Senter, then Speaker of the
Senate succeeded him as Governor.
At that time the electoral franchise
had been limited to unconditional
Union men and soldiers of the
Union army, thus disfranchising
the ex Confederates. Gov. Senter
directed the election officers to is
sue certificates of registration to all
ex-Confederates, thereby restoring
their franchise, and for this one ser
vice, which was one of the most
valuable ever rendered to the 8tate,
the memory of the dead ex- Governor
will ever be held in reverence.

Omaha, Neb.. June 14 The Ne
braska Building at the Exposition
was dedicated to-day with appro
priate ceremonies amid the plaudits
of the State's citiznns. Gov. Hol
comb and his staff took part in the
exercises, along with many of the
State's most distinguished residents.
The speakers of the day were Hon.
Constantino J. Smith, Hon. Win, F.
Gurley, aud Hon. William J. Bryan.
Mr. Bryan's oration was notable for
ne thing his public declaration of
the war issue. He took a high
ground on the question, urging that
the war is for humanity and not for
the extension of United States terri
tory. In concluding he said the
manifest destiny of this nation Is
not to acquire new realms to govern,
bnt to carry out te fundamental
principles of Democracy to the end
that equality among the citizens
may be secured. After discussing
the resources of Nebraska, Mr.
Bryan made the following reference
to the war aud its results :
"War is harsh ; It is attended by
hardships antl suffering: It means
a vast expenditure of men and
money. We miy well pray for the
coining of the time, promised in holy
writ, when the spears shall be
beaten into pruning hooks and the
swords into plowshares; but aniver
sal peace cannot come until justice
is enthroned throughout the world.
Jehovah deals with nations and he
deals with men, and for both de
crees the wages of sin Is death. Un
til the right has triumphed in every
land and love reigns In every heart,
Governments must, as a last resort,
appeal to force. As long as' the op
pressor is deaf to the voice of rea
son, so long must the citizen accus
tom his shoulder to the musket and
his hand to the sabre. Our nation
exhausted diplomacy in its efforts
to secure a peaceable solution of the
uuDan question, ana only took up
arms when It was compelled to
choose war and servile acquiescence
in cruelties which would have been
disgrace to barbarism.
"History will vindicate the posi
tion takeu by the United States, in
the war with Spain. In Baying this
assume that the principles which
were invoked in the inauguration
of the war will be observed in its
prosecution and conclusion. If a
contest undertaken for the sake of
humanity degeuerates Into a war of
conquest we shall find it difficult to

hypocrisy to greed. Is our national
character bo weak that we cannot
withstand the temptation to appro
priate the first piece of land that
cornea within our reach?

Jackson, June 1L The Supreme
Court to-day decided the Memphis
annexation case. Court held that
the act of the Legislature was un
constitutional inasmuch as dif
ferent parts of the city were to be
taxed differently and the face of the
act showed that some portions of
the city were to receive benefits not
granted other portions. While some
sections of the act might be aud
were constitutional the act was so
connected that the court declared
the act as a whole unconstitutional.
