pKUHt'kT BROWN, - TrTancr.
Antonio Maceo is one of the most
daring and picturesque of modern sol
diers. An atmosphere of romance sur
rounds his hifitorj, and makes him a
figure that appeals forcibly to the im
agination. He began bis military
career at a comparatively early age, not
from choice or in a regular way, but
under the pressure of cruel circum
stances and from a sense of duty that
was unavoidable. The borne of his
family was attacked and destroyed by
the Spanish troops at the outbreak of
the ten years war in Cuba, and his
mother and 6isters were shamefully
treated. Then the father and all of his
eleven eons except the youngest entered
the insurgent army, with a vow never to
Uy down their arms until the island
ehould be free. During that war the
father and nine of the sons were killed.
Antonio distinguished himself by reck
less bravery in battle, receiving no less
than twenty-one severe wounds, and was
promoted step by step to he rank of
general. When the insurrection failed,
and peace was signed, be refused to
accept the situation, and retreated with
his command to the mountains to con
tinue the fight. Finally he was induced
to leave Cuba, and he made his way to
West Point, where he acted as a hostler
and pioked up such military knowledge
as he could. From there he went to
Costa Rica, where he remained most of
the time until the present war begen.
when he returned to his country and
has borne a conspicuous part in the con
This gallant leader is a mulatto, part
negro and cart Spanish. It does not
appear that he ever bad any education
in the art of war except such as he
secured by private study and practical
experience, and yet he has more than
once proved himself to be superior in
strategy and in personal courage to the
beet of the Spanish commanders. Be
is above everything elee a fighter, and
belongs in qualities and methods to the
old order of paladins, who won dietinc
tion in hand-to-hand combats rather
than in the clash of armies. Is is his
delight to be always in the foreground
of the fight, where there is the greatest
peril and the best chance of individual
prowess. The general judgment of
military critics is that he is not as com
petent in all respects as Gomez, for
Patriotio League of America is not a se
cret organization, having for its aim a
few epecial purposes, but it is organized
to renew the eld sentiment that animat
ed our ancestors to combat tyranny and
strive for manly independence and self
government. It has no restrictions. Any
American can belong to it, no matter
what may be his creed .or color. Its
doors are wide open to every American
and its chief object is to incite all citi
zens of this Republic- with the patriotio
spirit that appears to hav been subor
dinated to commercial zeal and the pur
suit of the elusive dollar.
The addrees speaks in no equivocal
terms on the Cuban exigency. It de
clares that the intervention of this ca
tion at once is imperative, and that
"the eagle and the shield" shall panoply
the island, putting a stop to further
carnage in the interests of humanity, if
nothing more. The address points out
the indignities subjected to American
citizens while abroad, and discloses the
humility of American citizens eeeking
protection from British consuls in
foreign countries, owing to the weakness
and inefficiency of our diplomatic force.
It aocentuates the subservient and
almost servile attitude cf this country
to England and other countries in many
complications, and with unmeasured
terms stigmatizes this conduct as un
worthy of a great nation. Perhaps the
most startling part of the entire ad
dress is the advice to cease making any
further efforts towards a general arbi
trates treaty with Great Britain until
that country dismantles all the fortifica
tions along the Canadian frontier. The
address goes on to state these fortifica
tions are of recent construction and are
intended for no other purpose than a
menace and a threat to this country.
The addrees sajB that haste to be at
peace with the world is sometimes made
at the expense of honor. It advocates
protection to American products and
the immediate construction of the
Nicaraguan canal, the promotion of the
merchant marine and the incorporation
of adjacent islands and territory in the
United States, and to make the Amer
ican flag respected throughouttbe world.
This is not jingoism, but a true state
ment of broad Americanism. May the
society grow like a green bay tree.
of climate and soil. Such a couree will
bring ue both capital and population,
and thse are the two most needed ele
ments for our progress and upbuilding.
The New York Times is trying to
make people believe that the ioaugura
tion of Jefferson was conspiouous for ito
simplicity, and bitterly bewails Hanna'e
announcement thatMcKinley'e inaugur
ation will be the grandest affair of the
kind in American history. The Timee
says "it is vainglorious and sadly out
of taBte." It etrongly advises a return
to the simplicity extant ou such occasions
in the time of Jefferson. Evidently the
Times' library does oot contain a copy
of the "Aurora" of March 11, 1801, or its
ideas of matters in this direction would

stead of tying his hobby to the fence
and walking up to be sworn, as the
limes seems io Deiieve, tne "Aurora,
in its account of the procceedings says:
"At an early hour on Wednesday,
March 4th, the Cit of Washington pre

about 10 o'clock the Alexandria com

Jefferson, attended by a number of hie
fellow-citizens, among whom were many
members of congress, repaired to the

tillery. Ae eon as be with

devoted to purposes of festivity, and at
night there was a pretty general illumi

city Mark Hanna wants, with the onlv
difference that 1896 is almost 100
years after 1801, with all its changes and

chosen representatives of tbe people, as passage in both bouses, will constitute
ance of the international bimetallic con-
ference bad a full meeting to-day, and
the question wa9 discussed at some
length. The subject was chiefly con
sidered with a view to securing tbe wid
est possible latitude to a commission
and bo framing legislation that the in
coming President would be at liberty to
act immediately upon his inauguration,
and without waiting further legislative
action. There were thousands of re
publicans in the West who were in ac
cord with so much cf the Chicago plat
form as stood for the free coinage of
silver, but who were unable to accept
the other planks of tbe platform. There
were aleo in tbe Middle States hun
dreds of thousands of republicans, ear
nest bimetallists, who voted the republi
can ticKet because they believed the
financial plank in the St. Louis plat
form to be a sacred promise committing
the party to an earnest effort to secure
international bimetallism.
"So far as I can observe, the senti
ment is practically unanimous among
republican senators in favor of an ear
nest effort toward international agree
ment. I do not anticipate any serious
trouble in the way of securing euch
legislation as has been outlined, and
which will prepare tbe way for this
effort. So far as I can learn, there is no
opposition on the part cf either demo

tic. Tbe title waa changed to read

the resolution was made to read "tbe

did not have any new information to
present. Secretary Olney urged that no
action be taken at present acd pointed
out tbat there was no real government
to reoognize. Tbe agreement to report
tbe Cajaeron resolution was reached im
mediately after Olney left without divi
eion or expressed difference of opinion
Tbe only difference was as to the time
tbe resolution should be reported to tbe
pen ate. Cameron moved its report ou
Monday next. Sherman suggested that
tbe report be not put in until after tbe
holidays. Cameron s motion prevailed
by a large majority.
Tbe members of the oommittee are
reticent ae to what Secretary Olcey said
but it is certain be advised against any
action like tbat contemplated, as u
would involve war with Spain. One
member of the committee said: Ur
course Spain will fight. But there is
no danger of other countries getting in
our way. no otner European nauoD
wants to finbt us and we woaid wind
