Shafter's great rietorv in the capture of Santiago and 25.000 Spanish troop**, w th their arms and ammuni? tion, would have caused much more rejoicing had it not been accompanied by the news that the yellow fever had broken cut in our army at Santiago. Everthing thst money and science anc medical skill can do to stamp out the disease is being done, and the reports indicate that the fever is so far of a mild type, but there will be much un? easiness until the full extent of the in? fection becomes known. TO RETURN them to spain. The War Department is perfecting ?arrangements to send the Spaniard8, -who surrendered at Santiago, back to Spain, under parole, in accordance with the terms of surrender, and they ??rill be hurried off '.aa soon as possible. Sending them to Spain is the best nos s^bla thing to do with them, lt will be cheaoer than feeding them |and keep? ing them as prisoners, either in Cuba carin the U. S , and even if it wasn't, ll ?would still be the best way to get rid ol them. Secretary Alger is very proud of a setter he has received from a gentle? man who held command in the Union ?army during the civil war and who has m world wide reputation as an authori? ty on military matters. The tenor of the letter may be judged from this ex? tract: "You have shown the world what American naff departments un? der a head of great executive ability <-*?n create in an emergency, It is diffi? cult to create an army, equip it and rn* ve it, and il requires a peculiar kind ol ability." a large scnscKirrioN. The total amount of subscriptions to the war bonds was fl 385.1X30,000, and would doubtless have been twice as large had not the certainty they would not get any prevented many large fi? nancial concerns fi oro oil-ring to take big blocks of the bonds The meaning of this offer of our own citizens to lean uhe government one billion, three hun ilred and sixty-live million dollars, at three per cent interest, will be mare fully appreciated in Europe than Hmong ourselves,?we required no aach proof of the patriotism of our peo ?ple. President McKinley is much pleased to know that the entire issue oi the bonds will go to individuals, not MM of whom will get more than $5,000, and that almost half of the $200 0C0.00C will go out in lots of $500 or less* It is a popular loan sure enough. BEQCKST8 PCB AUTHORITY. As an additional proof that Ameri? cas always keen near the bead of the procession, whether they are engaged ia lighting with deadly weapons or in the struggle for the ul mighty dollar, it may be mentioned that application* tor authority to established National banks in the following places have been filsd at the Treasury Department Honolulu, Havana, San Juan, Porte Rico and Manila.

It might be supposed from the teno o* the European cable news, that ne gestations for peace between the TJ. c ?an-a Spain were under way. Such i net the case. There baa been no negc tiations, in fact, no word from Spai o*> the subjecr.

Considerable excitement was caused in camp by one of the pickets on an outpost a few nights ago. He was at? tacked by a gang of tramps and was quite badly hurt. The alarm was sounded and the entire camp called out. Two shots were lired, but it was impossible lo catch the gang, who es? caped into the woods. Ham. OOLORhD SOLDIERS IN BATTLE. [Baltimore, Md., Morning Herald.] It did not need the demonstration which took place at the brifif but des? perate battle of La Qiasina to prove the valor of th* colored troops. Even as far back as 85 years ago, during the Civil War, it was satisfactorily shown that colored men, under proper disci? pline, made efficient soldiers, and the memorable rep -rt of General Butler th*t. "the colored troop* fought nobly" wat> not an empty compliment. According to authentic accounts of the La Quag in a engagement, it wbb tbe gallant interposition of the Teuth C ni ted States Cavalry, colored, which prohably saved the Rough Riders from annihilation, and which enabled them to drive the Spaniards from their strong ambushed position. The testimony of the commanding officers and of all observers was to the effect that the Tentn Cavalry made a brilliant dash and stood to its colors manfully.manifesting conspicuous evi dence of personal courage ar.d splendid training. Whatever may be the racial preju? dices against the colored segment ol our population, they are not strong enough in any quarter to obscure Um public appreciation of the fact that the colored citizen makes an admirable soldier in many respects In physical development he meets every militarj requirement, his powers of endurance arc in no wise inferior, and he has the adventurous spirit which Rta him foi life on the tented field. Of the 70,000,000 people of our great BepnbUe over 7,000,000 are colored and il is gratifying to know that thi; formidable element ii pro vi ag its valiu in periods of public peril. The American people ara fair-mind ed, and they delight to give honoi where honor is due. They applauc the valor of the Tenth Cavalry ai heartily as the heroic dash of thi Rough Riders, In this free and enlightened country the paths of glory are open to all alike' Notice ! Notice !!

Splendid Behavior of the 24th Regiment ot United Infantry. [From the Springfield Republican.! "It is surprising, perpaps shameful, that there has been so little recogni? tion of the tmc- that the Twenty-fourth Regiment of United States Infantry, which s > distinguished itself at San Juan hill last Friday, was composed of Negroes. The correspondents of the New York papers at the front seem to have utter? ly ignored the fact. They miss no opportunity to glorify Roosevelt's Rough Riders or the Seventy-first New York Volunteer* for their work on that day, yet never a word about this regiment of colored regulars. Col. T. W. Higginson, who learned to appreciate the value of Negroes some thirty-tl ve years ago, will not be surprised at the story of Twenty-fourth Infantry at San Juan. Three compa? nies of the regiment lost every oue of ita elli *ere before the fight ing was over. Four of the regimental Captains were knocked over by Spanish bullet within a minute of each other, and the Lieu? tenant Colonel was severely wounded. Company F, in a --hort time had only its Captain left, and no other commis? sioned otli oat. Tt is said that the Twenty-fourth really bore the brunt of the San Juan fight, the Spaniards directing their main attack upon them on the theory that Negroes would not stand the pun? ishment. Vet companies remained steady without a single omcer. Asa final display of their remarkable dis? cipline and nerve, this regiment of Ne? groes under the hottest fire of the day, "changed front forward on its tenth company," which is called a manoeuver not altogether easy ona peaceful parade ground home. The value of a Negro as a soldier can hardly bl doubted after that day's work While we are distributing cards of merit to Generals and Commodores, lee us not forget the colored soldiers of the Twenty-fourth Infantry."

The Gallant Tenth. (From the N. Y. Mail and Express ) "All honor to the black troopers of the gallant Tenth ! No more striking example af bravery and coolness has been shown since the destruction of the Maine than by the colored veterans of the Tenth Cavalry during the attack upon Caney on Saturday. By the side of the intrepid Rough Riders they followed their lead? er up the terrible hill from whose crest tne desperate Spaniards poured down a deadly fire of shell and musketry. They never faltered. The rents in their ranks were filled as soon as made. Firing as they marched, their aim was splendid, their coolness was superb and their courage aroused the admiration of their comrades, their advance was greeted with wild cheer from the white regiments, and with an answering shout they pressed onward over the trenches they had taken close in pur? suit of the retreating enemy. The war has not shown greater heroism. The men whose own freedom was baptized with blood have proved themselves ca? pable of giving up their lives that oth? ers maybe free Today is a glorious Fourth for all races of people in this great land.
