The following graduation essays were
read by high school pupils in the audi

afternoon and were listened to by many
of the parents and friends of the pupils:
WAR OF 1898."
By Louis Kane.
One hundred years ago the Spanish
authority was supreme over all South
America, except Brazil and Guiana. In
North America, the Floridas, and all
that vast expanse of territory west of
the Mississippi and extending to the
golden shores of California were recog
nized by all nations as Spanish. In 25
years this noble domain had dwindled
to the islands of Cuba and Porto Rico,
with a few near-by Islets. Today Spain
has nothing. The question "Why?" may
be asked. Because she treated her sub
jects with such cruelty that she forced
them to revolt.
' The Spanish resemble the Apaches of
the southwest, but while they are Just
as ferocious and treacherous as those
savages of the border, they claim to be
civilized Christians. Oh what crimes
have been committed in the name of
leligion! The most horrible wars in all
history are those that claim to have
been waged for the faith whose basis
is love, charity, kindness, and forbear
Senator John Rf. Thurston used the
following impassioned words in an ad
dress just before the breaking out of
the late war, in which we was decribing
what he had witnessed in Cuba: "I
shall refer to these horrible, things no
longer. They are there; God pity me,
I have seen them, they will remain in
my mind forever, and this is almost the
twentieth century!"
To many it may seem that the result
of the present struggle is hardly com
mensurate with the sacrifice. When
viewed in its relation to the forces that
have shaped our nation, however, the
conflict assumes a new meaning. It rep
resents one of the steps in a slow but
unceasing process in which England and
the United States have played and will
continue to play the most important
part—the substitution of social order
for anarchy and misrule. Our territorial
acquisition during the present century,
the declarations of 1823 and 1865 and the
establishment of English influence in
India, China and Egypt are but parts
of one great movement—a movement
that wilt lead us to new responsibilities
in the affairs of Latin America. Vlew-ed
in this light, the conflict with Spain was
ae irrepressible as the slavery struggle.
By Nelson Hammond.
Since we live in a time .when attempts
are made to write the history of every
body and everything, it would seem
strange if we neglected the history oc
caricature—or of cartoons. It has been
said, that 'nothing distinguishes the
civilized from the uncivilized man with
such emphasis as humor; and the vari
ous stages of civilization are marked by
the amount and character of humor ap
parent at each period.
The ancients were in many ways dif
ferent from us, but we*are glad to know
that they took the same delight in ridi
cule that we do. This fact is made
known to us by some of the cartoons
preserved in Pompeii, Rome and Egypt.

accident many things have been pre

pleasure. Among other things which
have been unco%-ered in Pompeii is a
Roman garrison, the walls of w hioli
are covered with comic drawing tu
red, white and black chalk, princi] ally
in red. Also comic scenes from the
plays of Terence and Plautus have »een
found. A favorite form of caricatur
of the ancient was to have pygr lies,
beasts, and birds doing the ordi: iary
labors of men.
In Rome a picture has been found on
the wall of a street, which was cl >seci
up about A. D. 100. This picture or car
toon was found in 1857, and it is J th •
representation of a Christian worship -
uing his God. This is the only cartoon
alluding to Christianity yet found on
the walls of Italian cities.
From the great number of cartoons
found in Egypt, we learn that they also
delighted in making fun of each other,
and some of the best cartoons of the
ancients are from Egypt. The Chinese
and Japanese practiced caricature but
their work is not very interesting t 1
anyone but themselves, owing to their
crude tastes and disregard of perspec
Benjamin Franklin was the firs!
American cartoonist. Ke used pictures
Ahenevr he wished to impress a subject
upon the minds of the public. He dis
tributed his cartoons by printing them
311 handbills and posting them in con
spicuous places. His are the only ex
amples of colonial caricature that hav
been saved. There were other cartoon
ists at this time, but their efforts hav
ing answered their momentary purpose,
have perished. Political caricature in
the United States really dates front the
first administration of Andrew Jackson.
He was the subject of many carinsns

It has been said that those who listened

thing finer in him than appeared in hi
words. There was a eerta'n indescribable
personality about him, not common t
the ordinary cast df men. For this rea

about the former which unconsciously
attracts us, unexplained by the fact that
there is a great deal of latent power hid

A Damage Suit for $27,500 Is the Out
come of the Litigation—Two
Sided Injunction.
R. O. Merriman, Louis Mason, Silas F.
King and William Owsley have been
m. :,e defendants in a suit brought by
i ihe Butte Land and Investment com
pany, Patrick Mullins, L. J. Hamilton
and O. u. Hopkins to recover judgment
for $27,500 damages. The action is the
outcome of the litigation now going on
between the parties over what is known
1 as the Butte & Boston placer, located
on the l'.at east of the city. The ground
is patented as p acer, but a few months
a SO Meirinian and Mason located it as
qua: tz and ca'led it the Gulf. They
are alleged to have discovered quartz
within its lines. Each side instituted
injunction proceedings to prevent the
o.her from working the ground, and
both made a success of it, but on May 1
the order restraining the plaintiffs from
looking at the ground was dissolved.
The order, however, was effective be
tween February 6 and May t. and while
it was on Messrs. King and Owsley were
the sureties on the defendants' bond, the
amount of which was $2,00(1. This is
why they are made patties to the suit.
In the complaint the plaintiffs say that
while the preliminary fight was being
made they expended $700 for legal ser
vices and that because of the injunction
a sale of the property was defeated to
their damage in the sum of $25,000, The
bondsmen are made liable for only the
amount of the bond.
