Address changed as often as desired. Madrid tbe Point of Interest, In the absence of war newa of a start- j ling nature, In the way of developments, ' all attention Is centered on Madrid and j patience Is strained waiting fur the reply of Spain to the peace terms of this j government While this reply is expected to-day, it is possible that Spanish ' deliberation may delay it another day. Precisely what the terms of the demand . of the United States are with reference [ to the Philippines is still an official secret, although all speculations seem toi agree that they are on the lines which | have 'been-detailed in the press dispatches and are repeated in the Washington news this morning. With the reply from Spain to the com- j munlcation from the United State* all doubts upon all points will be cleared ! , up, as the government will, in all probability, as soon as practicable issue a statement of the status of the case. i The pubMo seems to be placing great confidence in the outcome, which fact is du$ prpbably to the general understanding that Spain has exhausted her resources and is anxious for peace as a measure of self-preservation from further disaster. It is useless to dJicuss the Philippine phase of the peace negotiations in the absence of positive information as to the terms of the demands of the President News from Puerto Rico shows that scatters at the front are moving favorably still, while from Washington there Is no intimation of a cessation of activi''? nroiMimtlnna fnr wndlnff TOf?r?* troops to Puerto Rico are being made, and until Spain takes definite action the question of an armistice will not be considered. At no time has the war situatlon looking to early peace been more encouraging or satisfactory. Narrow-Minded Critics* Judging from quite a lengthy editorial In the Register, filled with malicious lnstimations that President McKinley Is not sincere 1n his terms of peace laid down to Spain, with especial reference to the Philippines, the reader Is forced to the conclusion that our contemporary is sadly disappointed that Its expectation of a so-called "imperialist" policy, which the Democratic politicians had charged to the Republican party In advance, has been blasted. A partisan newspaper which is so lacking In fairness that It cannot give an opposition administration credit for honesty of purpose, and which isn't broad enough to give credit to a President who is receiving? -the commendation of fair-minded Americano throughout the country for what he has accomplished under the tress of a great responsibility, places itself on a level with unfriendly foreign critics. While the American press generally Is commending the President for his course, a few narrow-minded partiBan organs must vent a malice which, in this hour, when the chances for an honorable peace to be brought about on lines that win receive the endorsement of <he country are excellent, 1s indicative of disappointment that their unfounded predictions have failed. Even partisan yellow journals can find time to depart from their usual policy of captious criticism to commend the PresC.Tan*1. rvrtiri/i Thn Vr.? VnrU IV/irlil which has mado Itself unpopular by its misrepresentation* of tho administration during the war, Is moved to My: "The decision (concerning the Philippines) Is a wise one, whatever influenced It. President McKinley Is entitled to high praise for his courageous and prudent euurse la this matter. In taking grounds against con-. Uuest ?nd annexation President McKin Bafnfe MMflrSUCsfci:, ley atands with the moat conaervatlve i membera of bit own partj-.afld In re- l markaMe and gratifying agreement < with Mr. Cleveland, Mr. Bryan and the < majority at Democrata In Congreaa." < Barely thli ought to eatlifythe Regla- < ter. lor, although It doea come Irom a cbronlo critic of pubHo men, and not always a fttlr one.

Place It bealde" the contemptible 1 flings or tns wneeiing organ, wmcn, ? a time when the whole country 1* com- 1 mending the President for his wisdom 1 sad firmness, can do naught but vent 1 its partisan malice; The President m*y disagree with some of the leading men ( of the country on the Philippine mstter ( but none of them are decrying his hon- ( esty or wisdom. It Is a question on ( which we may all differ, without any of ( us being less patriotic. ( From the very beginning of the war President McKlniey has been winning the applause of the Nation, and Is to- < day receiving its commendation with- 1 out regard to section or party for his \ administration of the war. Fortunately, the confidence of the country is too mfArwh?lmin* in b# overcome by libels and misrepresentations of our patriotic, cool-headed President. Every act of his has given the He 'to partisan assaults upon his character as an Executive. in the Nunc of Spaniih Honor. A case of Spanish brutality and cowardice comes from Manila In a letter from a special correspondent of the Pittsburgh Dispatch, which Illustrates the "total lack of civilized methods on the port of the Spaniards in the Philippines in their war with the Insurgents. It is almost incredible, and yet H Is stated as a fact, that 250 Spanish troops, ( in order to protect themselves from the ' Are of only 200 Insurgents, gathered all the native women and children of the t town, and required them to stand In I front of the trenches In which cowered * these 250 brave Spanish knfghts of the t war for the "defense of Spanish honor." <: The poor Innocents who were thus t compelled to act as a human breastwork ^ could only rely upon the manhood of the j insurgents ior meir ihucix, u ui?./ had attempted to run back to the Span- 1 Ish lines they would doubtless have suf- J fered death. The Insurgents did not < fire a shot, although, It Is related, the 1 Spaniards fired three volleys at them. J Here is a sample of Spanish "honor" ( with a vengeance. "Spanish cowardice J and Spanish brutality" are tame expressions to apply <to the action of these "flowers of the Spanish army." "Span- J ish savagery" would be a better term 1 When a nation which boasts of the & righteousness of Its cause and the honor j of Its army, and 1s posing as a martyr j before the civilized nations of Europe, i send to its wars troops that must use j women and children as shields for their * protection from the flre of an enemy, u j is time for ail the world to rise up and l bless the Nation which, in the name of * humanity, is enforcing a protest against j such a misconception of what constl- t tutes civilisation. J Spain's Future Troubles. Spain's troubles will not end when peace Is made. She Is threatened with difflcukles of an Internal nature that will set the Cuban and Philippine insurrections In the background In the matter of direct bearing on the continuance of the present dynasty In power, unless there should be assistance from other European powers. The Carlist uprising which has been so long threatening in Spain is more than likely to be precipitated as a result of peace with the United States. Not only the Car-, lists, but all other revolutionary elements will be In a state of dissatisfaction with the government, and an internal menace even now threatens the peace of the kingdom?a peace which Is only maintained by military rule. It may not be that the dynasty will be deposed by any uprising which may occur. The revolution might do no more harm than to cause a great amount of bloodshed, but a problem will arise for the throne to face which will call for all the power at its disposal to . solve. The fear on the part of either t European powers that a revolutionary ( movement in Spain might spread to j some of her neighbors may induce them ' to assist the Spanish government to 1 meet the Issue, but even In this event ( there would be anything but a bright i future for the Spanish dynasty. The 1 first blow at what remained of Span- J -i?h power up to four months ago which ( has been struck by the United States ia * but the beginning of the end of the final ' act of tho tragedy of misrule for centuries past. The Inevitable must be ?nnnop or Later. If in thfl lonff dis tant future Spain shall ever again be | a recognlxed power on earth It will lie j under a different system of government, , or under other than native influence*. 1 Gen Miles' Vindication* A very large number of newspapers in the country are doing their best to gracefully admit that they have in the ' past been guilty of injustice toward 1 General Miles. The general has been the victim of a great deal of criticism * and not a little ridicule on account of ! some of his personal characteristics, i but in a little more than a week's time, 1 he has about overcome It all by his dls- J play of military talent and diplomatic , ability. ! General 'Miles Is showing his fitness, ( and his statements conccrnlng the army ( at the outset are being vindicated dally. Who cares, anyhow, what personal peculiarities in the way of a fondness for ! display a commanding officer may have, If he Is equal <6 emergencies and proves *-?- -""hI.iiiHo. <n HIm rrannnulble DO- 1 el lion? One of Spain's h-orloua problems will 1 bo to ascertain how she In to transport i her army of 1&0.000 men alleged to be In Cuba back to Spain, In t|je absence of funds and ships for the purpose. Sure- | ly she will not require them to swim across the Atlantic. They cannot pay i their own way, for the government hasn't given them nny pay for months. 4 General Miles has found the demand for Old <3Jory so great among ?he I Puerto Itleans that he has been obliged I Jo request the government t'? send him . a supply of flags for the towns and villages that ore hailing Uncle Sam as | their deliverer from Bptnteh rule. EVfalle the campaign In Puerto Rico waft sxpected to present few difficulties, the lordlalty of the welcome that Is being iccorded the American army comes In Jie nature of * pleasant surprise. We bsre had & full shale of the rainy leason hereabouts. Bhowers promised >y the .weather bureau generally develop Into something slightly more than ihowers. We are grateful for the cooler itmosphere they bring, but the fanners j&ve had a little more than they Bargained for. It ii hardly necessary for Spain to go hrough the formality yf consenting lo he cession of Puerto Rico. The people >f the island are already giving their ?naent to the arrangement.

The Atlantic for August Is largely a lctlon number and contains a group of ihort stories and sketches of unusual rarlety and Quality, xne quaim urwicry of Mrs. Ritchie'i Ah-Chy; the KipIngesque Lake sailors of Morgan Robsrtson, the sentiment and pathos of Mrs. Earle's Tinkling Slmlins and H. P. Whltmarsh's Driftwood, with the ollicklng humor and strong characterisation of Florence Ingersoll's The Comnodore, produce a combination of unlommoo variety, brilliancy, and inter!St? The leading features of the August Harper's are "The Convict System in Siberia," by Stephen Bonsai, richly 11ust rated; "The Monster," a story deleting American village life under the (train of intense excitement, by Ste)heo Crane, illustrated by Peter New>11; "Under the Spell of the Grand ?anon," an account of life and advenure in Arizona, by T. Mitchell Prudlen, M. D., illustrated by Fernand Lunrren; "Mr. Gladstone. Beminiscences, Anecdotes,and an Estimate," by George -V. Smalley, First Paper; "If the Queen lad Abdicated," an account of the Prince of Wales as he appeurs to those vith whom he Is associated most intinately; "The Lord Chief Justice. Being in KplBode In the Life of Richard By ler, otherwise 'Galloping Dick'," by H. 5. Marriott Watson, Illustrated by P. J. Yohn; "The Fish-Warden of Madrid,' in amusing sketch of New England itaaracter, by Bliss Perry illustrated by L B. Frost In Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly for August, the United States Army Is appropriately at the front, in an admlribly illustrated article by Frederick S. Daniel. The development of our Army 'rom colonial times to the present day s picturesquely traced, and American nllitary warfare in general is well deicrlbed. A most fortuitous timeliness avors the fine, up-to-date portraits of General Miles, Shafter, Merrltt, Otis, Breckinridge. Graham, and others. ?l.inca do Freyre Tibbits gives some ilghly interesting personal remlnls enccs, with family photographs of )on Carlos, the chivalrous Pretender to he throne of Spain. A holiday in Aniffun. one of the aualntest of the Brit sh West Indian Islands, Is described by Lilian D. Kelsey. Mr. David Hannay, who has made a ?peclal study of Spain and the Spanards, writing In the August Pall Mall Magazine, asserts that the Spaniard Is he most unbUBineselike of mankind, ind that this unbusinesslike Incapacity s shown in innumerable ways. Barceona, for example, writes Mr. Hannay. b a great trading port, about on a level vith Marseilles. It has grown very nuch within recent years. The Barceonese consider themselves a model to l11 Spain in the matter of industry, and n common sense. Yet In this town? vhich Is really a handsome place and ich?the head telegraph office Is In the luburbs, there is only one branch office n the town, and messages have to be lent from that by hand. The postofllce s well away from the port. In a byitreet. If you are there on business you vill find, as likely as not, that one clerk is In attendance out of an immense itaff. He will probably be very polite, iut he will put his hand to a pen or a bundle of letters as if he feared they would burn. And Barcelona Is a model >f smartness compared to Madrid. Of more than fifty pictures in the :urrent Issue of Collier's Weekly, thiry-flve are from photographs ashore and ifloat near Santiago. The frontispiece shows a portion of the battleship Texas" after the explosion of a Spansh shell that came aboard. Nine other pictures are of scenes ond Incidents of he pursuit and destruction of Cervera's leet; one of them Intimating that warriors are quite as sentimental as peaceful folk, is of the "Oregon," while her ij^nd plnyed a funeral march over a sinking Spanish cruiser. The fipht with Cervera's fleet Is described by a naval jfllcer who took part in it, and there ire other contributions from the fleet. In Gunton's magazine for August the following topics are treated In an entertaining manner: "Arc Wages Iteaily falling?" "The War Taxe?;""Rallronds ind the Government;" "After the War ?What?;" 'Distinguished Economists: Adam Smith;" "Spain's Last Outpost ?Porto Ulco;" "America and Europe." The Bookman f??r August Is one of he brightest numbers of that publlca tlon ever Issued. In the department of "Chronicle und Comment" appear: American, English, Miscellaneous. With new portraits of Henry Harland; Mrs. Humphry Ward; Maurice Hewlett; Ueorge Moore; Hermann Sudermann; fac-slmlle of Ground Plan of the Castle )f Zonda nn< 1 u reproduction of the Cas:le of Zenda by Howard Incc; fnr-slmllc if Poster for the August Scrlbner's; Stocks. Mrs. Ward's residence and Aidbury Village; fac-slmlles of three Illustrations by George Crulkshank from in Knglish edition of The Blgelow Papers, and a Map which Is a Litem ry Map of America designed by Paul Wilitach. Godoy'a Magazine for August presents several bright topics for pleasant midsummer reading. Among these are the Illustrated travel stories. "Fisher Folk of the Gulf of Mexico," by Leonora 12. Kills, and Life among the Germans ?t Freiburg In Baden," by Katharine F. Itcltfhnrd, that tell of the IIvch and cus- | torn* of certain people little understood by American renders. An article on "The Lebunon Shnkers" l?y Charles K. Halght. In nl*o of marked Interest; nnd & contribution on "The Chicago Public Library," adds a feature not before covered. All those who are fond of bright, entertaining Action for midsummer reading. will find ihe Augnnt Lndlm' liotne lournnl rntlrelv to thtlr taste. As uounl the August Issue of the Journal Is largely qlvat) lip to short stories, there being nine in the one number, and all l* m^akik? POWDER Absolutely puro well-known writers. These include a picturesque weird story by Julian Hawthorne; a strongly realistic tale by Clara Morris, the actress; a humorous adventure by John Kendrick Bangs, and romances told in a tenderer key by E. H. Mayde, Abbe Carter Goodloe, Sewell Ford, and Bettina Welch. Virginia Woodward Cloud graphically pictures "A Girl of Salem" in vigorous verse,and Julia Magruder concludes her novelette, "A Heaven-Kissing HiiL" Scribner's for August Is called the Action number, and while it contains several remarKBoiy we>w ptuuutiiun# In that line, It might also be designated as the war number. Richard Harding Davis contributes two excellent papers, "The Rocking Chair Period of the War," and "The Landing of the Army." both very entertaining In their descriptions of the operations of the American forces in Cuba. "The Chase of Cervera," by John R. Shears, and "Episodes of the War: First engagement on Cuban Soil,* 'by J. F. J. Archibald round out a number of unusual present Interest. War Xpwi Coran High. Added to the cost of the press fleet Itself is the enormous aggregate of telegraph tolls from out-of-the-way polnta through the West Indies. From Kingston, Jamaica, to New York, via Halifax, there is an English cable, on which the press rate reduces the cost or dispatches to fifteen cents per word, says the Washington Post. It Is about Ave hours' shorter run, however, to Port Antonio, anil this difference may mean "a t>eat," which. In newspaper vernacular, Is getting your stuff Into your home office ahead of the other fellow. Thus much of the news gathered on the south side of the island la tiled at Port Antonio, where an additional toll of twenty shillings for 100 words is charged to wire It Into the cable office at Kingston. On a message of several thousand words this amounts to a great deal, but In these days a few hundred dollars does not count In furnishing news to the pufblic. On the day Lieutenant Hobson sank the Merrlmac In Santiago harbor the New York Herald filed 2.000 words from Port Antonio for xr - **T. ?1- A uicxnU ti./? PrAxtf AIai) new lurn. 11 iu nooui.iim'j ? 4,000. and the other news Interests represented were not far behind In space. The post of this kind of service Is hard to calculate. On the other cable llnw accessible the cost Is much greater. There Is a direct French cable to New York from Mole St. Nicholas. HayU but It costs fifty-one cents a word, prepaid In gold, to file the stuff. Out of Kingston, when the wire Is banked forty-eight hours ahead with press matter, there Is a hole out by way ?if the Panama, cable through Central America. This luxury costs 11.63 a word, but there have been numerous messages of B00 words each filed via this route In the feverish effort to get the news Into the home offices ahead of the other competitors In the fleld.
