This is a joint resolution, Mr.
Speaker, for the relief of the
staruing inhabitants of the interior
of Mindanao. The introduction of
modern fire arms has caused the
virtual extinction of the Visaya
tribe on which my unfortunate
constituency chiefly dependeded
for meat. Statistics gathered in
1897 showed that the supply of
Visayas at that time in towns and
villages, to say nothing of scat
tered herds, was suffioient to keep
us amply supplied with human
food for 100 years. Since out
people were sup plied with repea
ting rifles, however, and the
Visayas developed a tendency to
vote the opposition ticket we have
found it impossible to prevent
indiscriminate slaughter for pur
poses of sport. The suppl / is now
exhausted. I know of instances
within my own knowledge, Mr.
Speaker, of families reared in the
lap of luxury who never knew the
taste of any human flesh but that
of the youngest and tenderest
called Visayas who are today
reduced to the degrading necessity
of feeding on the meat of animals.

Washington, June 27.-The
administation today finally came
to a decision to send an American
squadron to the coast and into the
Mediterranean. Several times I
since the war broke out rumors to
this effect have circulated, but the
project had not matured, and it
required the Spanish movement
toward the Philippines by Cam
ara's squadron to decide the navy
department to adopt this bold
stroke. The first announcement
today through a bulletin posted
at'the navy department of the gov
ernment's intention was received
with incredulity. TheFe was a
suspicion that the story was being
floated to deceive the Spanish
government. However, when later
in the day the detaii of the vessels
selected to constitute Com. Wat
son's Eastern fleet was announced
and ofBciarbrders were given to
provision the fleet for four months,
it became apparent to the last
doubter that the government Avas
in earnest in thie purpose to dis
patch the fleet to Europe. The
three vessels selected as colliers
have started already on their way
to Newport News to take on a
large supply of coal. It will require
about a week to get this down to
Sampson's fleet, so if the.start is to
be made from that point it will
be impossible for Commodore
Wafson to get away before the 4th
of July. This would seem to be an
auspicious date for the beginning
of an expedition that will, for the
first time in the world's history,
start from the new world to attack

Test of the Vesuvius.
The dynamite cruiser Vesuvius
joined the fleet at Santiago de
Cuba recently and was put to work
immediately. Ensign Palmer, of
the New York, went on board the
Vesurius with Lieutenant Comm
ander Pillsbury, to explain the
location of the batteries. A few
minutes lrom midnight the
Vesuvius was about half a mile
from the beach west of El Morro.
The Oregon's search-light played
on the battery while the blacknose
of the cruiser pointed at the west
ward batteries. Lieutenant Com
mander Pillsbury gave the word
to fire, and Lieutenant Quim

ordering this' movement by a de
sire to check the progress eastward
of the Cadiz fleet. It was not be
lieved that the Spanish admiral
could be guilty of the folly of un
covering his home ports in this
fashiou ; but inasmuch as he seems
determined to do so, the naval
strategists could not do less than
take advantage of the magnificent
opportunity thus afforded to strike
a crushing blow at Spain and
thereby perhaps save much time
and loss of life and money in the
conduct of the tedious campaign
The determination to send this
squadron against Spain was the
outcome of direct official advices
reaching the etate and navy de
partments as to the progress of
Admiral Camara's squadron. The3e
advices give a list of the Spanish
ships now nearing the Suez Canal,
which differs tomewhat from the
Hst giveu in me press dispatches
and by Lloyds. The official list is
as follows: Pelayo, Carlos V, Au
daz, Odasa, Prosperina, Patri?la,
Rapide Buenos Ayres, Isla de
Paney, Colon, Covan 'onga and
San Francisco. The additional
information comes from official
sources that this squadron'is at
Port Said, and expects to take on
board 10,000 tons of coal before en
tering the Suez Canal. Such a
heavy loading will take some time.
It discloses also that the admiral
expects to make a long sail, and is
doubtless headed for the Philip
pines, a point which the officials
here doubted at first. This squad

but no report, no warning to the
Spaniards :vho were hiding in the
darkness. Thirty seconds later a
dull roar broke the silence of the
tropical night. Two hundred
pounds of gun-cotton had exploded
on the hillside below the battery.
The ships on tho blockade line two
mile away shook with the explos
ion. The firing of a 13-inch shell
ia a mere rifle crack compared to
the deep and mighty roar. Clouds
of earth thrown up from the hills
seems to stand out against the
black sky. Another package of
guncotton was dropped on the
other side of the battery and may
possibly have struck the torpedo
boats anchored below. Before the
echoes of the second died away the
Vesuvius sent a third charge hiss
ing out. It fell right on the brow
of the hill, where the battery
seemed to lie. The air was full of
earth and smoke covered the land
for half a mlle. The Vesuvius
retired at a l?-knot rate. It is
regarded as highly satisfactory
and there is interest in the first
trial of the dynamite cruiser.

Consistent with Safety.
AND without making special raedtion of each of its many popu
lar plans of insurance, we desire to invite the careful examina
tion of all concerned in Life Insurance to THE PROVIDENf'S
TWENTY-YEAR RENEWABLE TERM POLICY-A SPECIAL
POLICY FOR BUSINESS MEN.
Twenty years is a long time. This is true in life insurance, as
well as in other business transactions. Nearly all life iusurance poli
cies are contracts for a period of twenty years. They are made so by
insurance companies to supply the the needs of the insuring public.
When a man takes a whoie-life, twenty payment life or twenty-year
bond, he cousiders its cost to him during twenty years, and the settle
ment which he can make at the end of twenty years. Experience and
statistics prove that only a small percentage of policies are continued
longer than the twenty-year peri jd.
Men take on large line3 of insurance from age 30 to 40. The en
suing twenty years cover the period when their families are growing
up and beiug>ducated ; it also covers the period of their greatest busi
ness activit)'. It covers the time when their families aud business in
terests require,.the greatest amount of protection.
A man's requirements are not the same at 60 years that they are
at 40 years. His family has grown up, his business conditions have
changed, or the necessity for insurance has disappeared.
In view of these facts, The Provident Savings issues a policy at a
fixed rate for twenty years, which includes only the cost of protection
for that time. The premiums on this policy are less than one-half the
prem i umsteh ar ged for a twenty-payment life. If aman wants insur
ance for protection only, this policy will supply his wants admirably.
He is not obliged to make a deposit with an insurance company for a
future which he may never rmch; especially when he haB need for
this deposit, and more, too, in his business. - '
To illustrate this Policy, we will give the figures. A mah at 30
takes one of these Policies for $1,000 at the regular term rates of $14.91
\per annum for twenty years. This policy can be continued, after
twenty years, without medical re-examination, at rates for the age
