Complaints of tardiness on the part
of the administration in pushing the
war against Spain are growing louder
each day, as indications increase that
the administration is expecting a very
long war, instead of a very short one.
The speech of Representative Ding
ley, who probably voiced the senti
ments of Mr. McKinley, on the bill
to provide war revenues for the gov
ernment, which has just passed the
House, indicated his belief that the
war would last for years. He could
not be properly answered, because
nobody cared to get up and say
things they knew to be true that
would be construed by Spain and
Europe as meaning that there was a
division of sentiment among Ameri
cans as to tnis war The same feeling
has prevented public criticism of the
remarkable state of unreadiness in
which the War Department was found
to be when Mr. McKinley finally
gave up his jack o'lantern hope of
securing the freedom of Cuba through
peaceful negotiations. The people
do not want a long war, and do not
believe that there is any occasion for
one. Fitz Lee, who is good military
authority, and who has carefully been
over the ground, has said that with
20,000 men and the co-operation of
the navy Havana could be taken in
15 days. That many troops, three
fourths of them regulars, could be
landed in Cuba in 48 hours after an
order was issued, and the navy is al
ready here. But there is no such
order. Instead, there is a lot of ta'k
about (he necessity of the 125,000
volunteers just called out remaining
several months in camps of instruc
tiou, and <sf the probability of the
Spaniards being allowed to remain in
Cuba until tall, unless the insurgent
army can drive them out, or the
blockade starves them out. Mr. Mc-
Kinley calls this a war for humanity,
but a continuation of the blockade ot
Cuban ports without capturing them
will result in starving as many women
and children to death as Butcher
Weyler's policy did. The Spanish
array in Cuba isn't suffering for food
—they prepared for the blockade—
but non-combatants are.
Under the law for the reorganiza
tion of the regular army, which went
into effect this week, the total will at
once be enlisted up to 60,000 men,
and the war-pay of privates and non
commissioned officers will be increas
ed 20 per cent.
One of the strongest points in our
system of government is emphasized
by the present situation in Washing
ton. In the State, War and Navy
Department building, in which are
located the fighting branches of the
government, the hurry and bustle of
war is seen on every hand, while the
other department buildings, in which
business relating to the industrial and
commercial progress of the country,
such as the management of our great
postal system, the granting of patents,
looking after public lands etc., is go
ing on just as though there never was
such a thing as a war, and so they
will continue to go whether the war
lasts three weeks or three months.
The fighting branches of the govern
ment will attend to the war without
encroaching upon the business of the
other branches.
In announcing by proclamation the
principles upon which he will wage
the war, which Congress has authoriz
ed, Mr. McKinley has certainly
carried mild treatment of Spanish in
terests to an unnecessary extreme—
an extreme that will wipe out the ex
pectations of prize-money entertained
by the brave sailors that man Admir
al Sampson's blockading squadron,
by releasing nearly, if not all of the
Spanish vessels they have captured
since the blockade was established.
This proclamation gives all Spanish
merchant vessels in American ports
or bound to or from American ports
immunits from capture until May 21,
inclusive. It would be possible to
make some nations surrender by
treating them and their interests with
consideration, but Spain is certainly
not one of them. What Mr. McKin
ley doubtless intended to be an act
of extraordinary generousity and for
bearance will be charged to his fear
of them by the ignorant Spanish.
There is only one way to deal with a
Spaniard—fight him and lick him ;
then he will be ready to entertain the
idea of a foe displaying magnanimity
towards him.
Republicans in their absurd at
tempt to monopolize all the patriot
ism are charging that because some
democrats oppose the issue of $500,-
000,000 in bonds provided for 111 the
war revenue bill the House has pass
ed they are opposed to giving the ad
ministration all the money it will need
to conduct tne war. Nothing could
be further from the truth. There is
not a democrat in either branch of
Congress who is not in favor of voting
all the money that may be needed to
vigorously fight~the war to a success
ful conclusion. That many of them
agree with the populists and silver re
publicans in believing an issue of
bonds to be unnecessary, and that i*.
would be better to raise the money
: by an income tax and other ways of
j direct taxation, is true. The bond
1 issue is likely to be fully discussed in
j the Senate, and, although it will pro
bably not be made a party question
by the democratic Senators; it will not
be surprising if most of them vote
! against bonds, nnlcss the nature of
; the war news changes their present

"Army to the Front-''
With profound emotion the Ameri
can people hear again the stern words
whose echo last died away in our
country 33 years ago this April,
"Army to the front." At this word
of command the army of a people
whose population numbers 70,000,-
000 moves forward to make war on a
kingdom whose subjects, counting its
outlying islands, dependent colonies
and ail, number only 25,000,000. Our
country is rich and prosperous from
a generation of peace, Spain is ex
hausted to the last few drops of her
lifeblood bv the Savage wars she has
been waging to suppress her own
revolutionist children.
Yet it is not a war of aggression the
powerful country declares against the
weak one. In that admirable joint
resolution which directed President
McKinley to send the army and navy
to Cuba the statement rang out clear
and unmistakable that the United
States had no intention or desire to
ward possessing the island for itself.
We seek only the pacification of Cuba,
and when that is accomplished the
will of the American people, express
ed through their congress, is to leave
the government and control of the
island to those who belong there.
Neither is ours a war for revenge.
Even the awful crime of the blowing
up, at the instigation of Spanish offi
cials, of the Maine in the harbor of
Havana while on a friendly visit there,
a dastardly act by which 260 brave
American citizens were hurled to
death, was not considered by our
government sufficient reason for
making war. "Remember the Maine!"
will be the rallying cry of our sea and
land soldiers when they meet the
enemy, but it is not the casus belli
lying behind the thrilling command,
"Army to the fVont!"
We have set ourselves right in the
eyes of the powers of Europe. We
have declared we do not want Cuba.
We have refrained from taking that
just vengeance for the loss of the
Maine to obtain which just vengeance
no European government would have
held back its hand an hour. We pre
pare to drive the Spaniard from Cuba
because his further stay is a "disgrace
to Christian civilization and cannot
longer be endured. - '
Our army moves to the front on a
crusade in the name of justice and
humanity. No holier war was ever
undertaken. A dozen millions of loyal
Americans are at the command of the
president and congress to free Cuba.
That done our volunteer army will
melt away and rejoin the ranks of the
private citizens of a peace loving
nation.— Ex.
What the State Commander Suggests for Its
Commander Staufler, of the Penn
sylvania department of the Grand
Army of the Republic, has issued his
annual Memorial Day general oiders.
He suggests as a part of the obser
vance of the day the attendance of
posts at church services on Sunday,
May 29. He also suggests that pastors
be asked to select texts illustrative to
these subjects: "The gain of Ameri
can citizenship by the success of the
Union soldier,' and "The unquestion
ed and everlasting right of the cause
of those who battled for the Union."
He suggests that the school children
be again asked to participate in
Memorial day's celebration, that
everybody be interested in it, that or
ganizations other than military be
welcomed to participate, and that the
sacredness ot the day be observed.
He says Memorial day, while not a
day of sackcloth and ashes, nor mourn
ing, nor fasting, should not be devoted
to frivolous pastime. It is a day for
the flag, flowers and communion with
the nation's dead.
Facts About Our Sea Power Told in Those
Tho United Stales ara Tied With Germany
for Fifth Place -Powder Comes in Chunks,
r is Brown and Docsin Smoke—No Grog
ana no Flogging Now.
The United States is the fifth naval
power in the wot Id, writes Frank Lee,
in the Chicago Times-Herald. The
, navies of Great Britain, France, Russia
and Italy rank ahead in the order
named. Germany and the United
States are about tied.
Our present effective fighting force
consists of four battleships of the first
class, one battleship of the second
class, two armored cruisers, eighteen
cruisers, fifteen gunboats, six double
turreted monitors, one ram. one dyna
mite gunboat, one dispatch boat, one
transpoit and eight torpedo boats.
; The lowa weighs nearly 12,000
tons, and as twenty tons in the aver
age load of a freight car and twelve
cars is a good load for a locomotive
engine, it would take fifty locomotives
to haul the great steel structure.
The powder used is brown and in
chunks the size of a caramel. A charge
for the biggest guns weighs 500
pounds and is hoisted to the breech
by a derrick, the powder being sewed
up in burlap bags.
Armor plates arc tested by firing
steel projectiles weighing from roo to
1500 pounds at them from guns
charged with 500 pounds oi powder at
a distance of about a city block.
Our battleships have a speed of
from fifteen to seventeen knots an
hour. Cruisers make nineteen to
twenty four knots, while the monitors
can travel only five to seven knots.
The biggest guns in the navy are
forty-nine feet long, big enough for a
tnan to crawl into; four feet in diame
ter at their largest part and weigh
'3s)s°° pounds or thereabouts.
There are six rear-admirals in active
service. The offices of vice-admiral
and admiral are unfilled, so there is no
head of the navy excepting Secretary
Barnacles form on the hull of a
ship, impeding its speed. A six
months' cruise will decrease the speed
of a ship fifteen per cent., and it must
go into dry dock.
Sixty-one merchant vessels belong
to the auxiliary navy. These ships are
subsidized and by contract must be
given to the United States on demand.
Some of the guns in the navy can
fire a shot twelve miles, farther than a
man can see, for the guns are aimed
and sighted by machinery.
The amount expended by the Navy
Department in 1897 was $34,561,546.
This is a larger sum than has been
expended in any year since 1866.
In a battle the woodwork and all ,
articles of wood are either stowed be
low or thrown overboard lest the men
be injured by splinters.
The origin of the Navy Department
may be said to date from October 13, 1
1775, when congress authorized the
equipment of two cruisers. '•
The fastest vessels in the navy are
the torpedo boats Porter and Dupont, 1
each of which can travel 27.5 knots
an hour.
Battleships cost from $2,500,000 to
$3,75 0 , 0 °0, and cruisers from S6OO,- 1
000 to $3,000,000. A good torpedo 1
boat costs over SIOO,OOO.
Battleships are for the heavy work ;
cruisers are commerce destroyers;
monitors are useful only for coast
Serene comfort and happiness in ad
vanced years are realized by compara
tively few women.
Their hard lives, their liability to se
rious troubles on account of their pecu
liar organism and their profound igno
rance concerning themselves, all com
bine to shorten the period of usefulness
and fill their later years with suffering.
Mrs. Pinkliam has done much to make
women strong. She has given advice
to many that has shown them how to
guard against disease and retain vigor
ous health in old age. From every cor
ner of the earth there is constantly com
ing the most convlnciug statements
from women, showing the efficacy of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound in overcoming female ills. Here
is a letter from Mrs. J. C. Orms, of 220
Horner St., Johnstown, Pa., which is
earnest and straight to the point:
"DEAR MRS. PINKHAM: — I feel it my
duty to tell all suffering women that I
think your remedies are wonderful. I
had trouble with my head, dizzy spells
and hot flashes. Feet and hands were
cold, was very nervous, could not sleep
well, had kidney trouble, pain in
ovaries and congestion of the womb.
Since taking your remedies I am better
every way My head trouble is all
gone, have no pain in ovaries, and am
cured of womb trouble. I can eat and
sleep well and am gaining in flesh. I
consider your medicine the best to ho
had for female troubles."
The present Mrs. Pinkham's experi
ence in treating female ills is unparal
lelled, for years she worked side by
side with Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham, and
for sometime past lias had sole charge
of the correspondence department of
her great business, treating by letter
as many as a hundred thousand ailing
women during a single year.
