Saturday; august 20, isos. The peace protocol was signed nnd the Stars and Stripes went up over Hawaii on the same day. August 12th will be a memorable date. The peace undoubtedly saves the Spanish dynasty for the present, nnd the ministry galnts a momentary popularity, but wait till the peace ne gotiations come on. There will be some startling developments then. Whht is this story of the appoint' mcnt of someone to George Ashley's place in the Finance Office, and the desire of the powers to prevent "the xabble" from hearing about it. The appointment wns declined, but 4,thc rabble" are liable to be on top one of these days. The pretence of Professor Pritchett, who has the superintendence of the geodetic coast survey, is another straw showing' us that we are really part of the United States. Many peo ple still lianlly realize now great a change has taken place, and they are not always of the ignorant class either. It is not necessary for The Star to express its views elaborately upon its political bearing). The Star has always been a Republican paper, even when out of the pale of the United States, and The Star wns the first journal to endorse Ex-Minister Sewnll for Republican governor of the ter ritory. it is not always wise to jump at conclusions. Just before the war the attitude of the President was strong ly criticized, but during the struggle the wisdom of his course has been thoroughly justified. The same may be advanced for Lord Salisbury; he is an astute diplomat, and has able lieu tenants. lie i.s decidedly averse to war, but if war has to come he will use the power of his country to the utmost. The attitude of England and Russia may decidedly be considered as very strained, but the strain may become less after further negotia tions. PEACE. Exactly upon the terms originally proposed by the President, Spain has signed the protocol of preliminaries of peace, nnd the troops of both bel ligerents may rest on their nrms. Of course until peace is actually signed, the military forces will have to remain in the Held, nnd will still be exposed to the dangers of disease. The naval forces will be able to go into dock and the officers and sailors feel freed from the trying duties of the blockade. It has taken three months and twenty-one days to finish a war that will have the most momentous- conse quences to the world. From the western hemisphere Spain is expelled forever. Once her sway extended from California to the Straits of Ma gellan, now not a foot of land will have Hying over it the yellow and red of the Don. In this direction the cur tain falls upon the last scene of a tragedy, for Spain's occupation of the New World from the beginning to tlie end was n tragic history of murder, cruelty nnd broken faith. What the result in the Philippines will be, no one can say. The United States has won with her arms. On October 1st will commence the battle of diplomacy which will be just as keenly fought, though it will be car ried on as n mental, not a physical struggle. There are plenty of keen witted nnd ably trained among our foremost countrymen who can meet the diplomats of Spain on their own ground, so that we need have no fear that we (jhall lose in the council chamber whnt our soldiers have won in the field. Hut this is not whnt is so momen tous in this war. It is not the gain ofjiui inland here and a coaling sta tion, tlipre. It is the effect upon 'bur selves ns a nation, nnd the effect upon th'e"bther nations, of the earth. The policy of isolation, which has been enrried out so carefully In the past, has ceased. It hafl'jtp cease sooner, or later. Our pommereinl relations de manded It. We stand now as the sec ond exporting nation in the world,, nnd our exports are chiefly manufnet. ured goods or agricultural products, not raw material. This enormous trnde needs protection, nnd it needed this wnr to show to the world that our navy could protect our commer cial marine no matter where it might be. Wo knew our own na val and military strength, but the world nt large required an object lesson, and it has had it. The haughty Hag of Spain has been swept from the sens, while we have shown that our citizen soldiery Is superior to the trained conscripts of the Peninsula. Nothing has surprised Europe more than the speed with which the United States armed, equipped and sent forth armies east nud west. They have sprung from the ground like Me dea's warriors from the dragon's teeth. When one thinks that in April there wns an nrmy of barely twenty five thousand, nnd that nt present there are largely in excess of two hundred thousand under arms, und that of these over sixteen thous and have been moved during that time a distance of six thousand miles from their own shores and landed in the remotest East, the rapidity with which it was done, the boundless re sources it displayed, and the rendj patriotism it called forth, mark it as one of the most marvelous achieve ments of either ancient or modern times. And the world has learned its les son. We were great as a commercial nation; we now take our place as fore most among the military and naval powers of the earth. If the curtain has fallen upon the shadow of Spain, It has been rung up on the grandest of dramas for the United States. For our mission in this world is peace. W,e stnnd an example to-the world of the advantages of freedom; freedom in trnde; freedom in politics; freedom to worship God in whatever way we wish. The torch of liberty is lighted and held on high; countless millions in the future will bless its life giving beams. Wmef Uopie$. July 27, l88.

In utter defiance of the mossy old theories wu noW photograph the coins itihlda of n pocketbook and the bones in living bodies. Similarly the light of intelligence shines upon certain anti quated notions in medicine. The in tellectual X-Rays have shown the fallacy of tlio idea that sick people had 110 alternative but to take nau seating doses of cod liver oil or die. The wonderful success of WAMPOLE'S PREPARATION disproves all that.

AT THE BATTLE OF MANILA Admiral Dewey's fleet was lubricated with Vacuum Oils, obtained at Hongkong. At the same time Vacuum Oils were in use ashore in the sugar and jute mills of the" Philippines. The British Navy and the Japanese navy regularly use Vacuum Oils, and various battleships and cruisers of every other nation obtain them at various ports around the world where stocks are carried. Vacuum Oils are so well known and highly thought of by the naval officer, the mill owner, and the machinery user everywhere, that one hundred and twelve foreign warehouses are required for their distribation. The reason is they lubri cate most. Other oils sell for less by the gallon, but Vacuum Oils cost least by the day. Vacuum Oil Company, Rochester, N. Y.
