Entered at the Postofllce of Newport News, Va., as second-class matter. SATURDAY, MAY 7, 1898. ? ? AS SEEN BY SPAIN. El Imparclal, a newspaper published in Madrid, has a correspondent who knows some remarkable things. The following samples from a recent letter published in that paper will give a ""faint conception of the wonderful scope of his knowledge: "The only powder mill on the Amer? ican continent capable of producing smokeless powder has been destroyed. Thus the Americans have no way of reloading their heavy ordnance, as black or brown powder cannot be used effectively. "Then the states which were counted on to furnish the men for the war find themselves handicapped by a threat? ened Indian uprising. The regular army has been withdrawn and the sav? ages have already taken the warpath. In the state of Ohio, Illinois and Iowa the citizens have adready been called out to protect their western frontiers from the raids of the wild men. In the District of Columbia the militia guard has refused to serve. The guard was ordered out by the Presi? dent, and when it was discovered thai it was to go into camp and drill for war purposes it disobeyed the otlicers and returned to the capital. 'The $50,000,000 voted for the war have not been collected, and a bill is now before Congress providing m<*ans to borrow money with which to tight Spain." From the foregoing it seems that "Uncle Sam is in a pretty bad condition. Unfortunately for Spain, Commodore Dewey and his men utterly failed to realize the dreadful condition of af? fairs and persisted in illustrating their firm belief In the theory that the Stars j and Stripes make nice decorations for the flagpoles of Spanish forts. We fear our esteemed Spanish contempo? rary will find it exceedingly difficult to make the Americans believe its re? ports of the condition of affairs. Americans are very "set" in their opinions concerning the resources and greatness of their nation. "The United States is a republic," ?aid Senor Sagasta in addressing the Cortes Tuesday, "yet it employs to? ward Spain a policy of a kind so base that the world has never seen before. It does not dare make war face to face." Perhaps the Spanish Prenrtei has information to the efTect that the Cape Verde fleet has spent days and Weeks in a vain search for Admirai Sampson's squadron, or he may have learned from some private source that . the Manila fleet was destroyed by bursting boilers, the patriotic Spanish engineers forcing steam up beyond the : safe point in a vain endeavor to catch -' the fleet squadorn under Commodore Dewey. If the distinguished Spanish -.: sta.teman has any such information, . however, he should give it out. An as '?:?', sertion like the one he made to the Cortes loses much of its weight unless backed up by a few confirmatory de ta"8- _ It has not yet been officially an ' siounced whether or not ex-Minister P Bayard will endorse these kind vle"ws : '. now Being expressed concerning Amer V Sea and Americans by the English ; press and people. ' There can be no doubt that the Span iards are willing to acknowledge that ;.'. it "never rains but It pours." It is quite likely that there will soon . be several additions to Spain's already ' Sarge submarine fleet. : The Spanish soldiers have gal bad one "Victory. They succeeded in capturing Madrid. . .
