Those persons who have been spend? ing the greater portion of their time in studying ways and means by which the distinguished approbation and affection of General Ramony Blanco might be gained for the American people and for American things, will be pained and grieved to read the following harsh and cruel Interview, which that courteous gentleman and bold warrior cheerily "smashed" out of his long-suffering but uncomplaining typewriter a few days ago: "I am naturally inclined to be chari? table, but I must confess to a feeling of deep resentment against the United Stales, whose conduct toward Spain in declaring war against us. without mo? tive or pretext. Just at the time when they were receiving from us the high? est marks of our frieudshlp and respect can never be condemned too severely. "It ought never to be forgotten that Jttst when the United States were an? nouncing their intention of coming to Cuba to establish a firm government they were in reality directing hostili? ties, principally against Porto Rico and the Philippines. "Since the beginning of this war it has always been my heartfelt desire as commander-in-chief of the army for the day to arrive when I could match my armed strength against theirs and die. if necessary, among the ruins of Havana if fortune were not favorable, but I was unable to realize my hope. My government has signed the peace pro? tocol and her decision must be complied with. Nevertheless. T have an eternal confidence In divine justice, and I have, therefore, hope that this arrogant na? tion ?<il! receive its just deserts, and God-knows that the day when this act of national despoliation is accomplished and the stars and stripes float from the walls of Havana, that day w ill per? haps, mark the beginning of the decay of the. American nation." Undoubtedly the brave General was not alone in his desire to go out and face the American "pig" on the field of $lie- is quite probable that a number Of loyal and straight shooting followers of the Stars and Stripes would have welcomed such a consumation with as much delight as they would have muni, fested at the juxtaposition of the pay? master. That, however, is not germane to the principal proposition. Blanco has a feeling <j>f deep resentment against us, and we are drooping and pining away over the dreadful realization of the fact. It is lo be hoped that he has not cast us < ff for all time. If he will only teli his J .merican friends what they can do In or ler to gain his friendship and in he might be surprised at ton.
