The question recurs, Will the surren

The first news of the battle to reach
Santiago was conveyed by seven sailors
from one of the torpedo boat destroyers,
who escaped lo the shore and walked
into tho fortress Sscapa. It is also said
that a number of sailors from the cruis

reached Santiago overland.

Schley it was who discovered Cerve

lant officers and their crews. Admiral
Sampson was five miles away but bur-
hied up and took a hand near the close.
(Jive credit where credit is due. We
may well feel proud of our navy and Its
capable officers and men. There Is no
necessity for any bickering.
It is to be hoped our authorities will
not fail to remember and to consult oc
casionally the act of Congress declaring
war against Spain. It was not to be a
war for conquest and territorial aggran
dizement. No such policy was to be In
augurated. But let us see what the
declaration of Congress on the subject
was, and the pledge wbi:h was given to
the world: ''The United States hereby
disclaims any disposition or intention
to exercise sovereignty, jurisdiction or
control over said island except for the
pacification thereof, and asserts its de
termination, when that is completed, to
leave the government and control of
the inland to ltd people." This pledge
is plain and unmistakable, and cannot
be ignored without dishonor which our
great country cannot aflord to do. Con
gress mentioned no other Spanish col
ony, and we could hardly find a pretext,
to appropriate others when Congres
expressly set np no claim for Cuba.
The "Congressional Record" In iU
closing number for the Eossion gives the
official statement by Senator Allison of
the appropriations for tho year ending
June 30, 1899. The estimates by the
departments called for peace and war
appropriations of (911,532,533. Tho to
tal appropriations made bv Congres
amounted to 1892,527,091. Of this
amount for the war in Spain there was
appropriated e381,7S8,093. The total
appropriations, other than for the war,
were $530,839,600, which exceeds tho
appropriations last year $2,001,810, a
moderato increase, showing thero was
considerable cutting done In the usual
yearly Increase. Speculating on the
mu:h greater costliness of modern war.
as compared with that of former times,
tho Baltimore "Sun" points to some in
tcresting facts:
Tho war for independence lasted elcrht
years, and its cost is officially recorded
as $135,000,000, using round figures.
There were about 310,000 troops engaged
in mai war one uiiru as many mora as
have been bo far called out In the pres
ent conflict with Spain. It follows that,
accepting Mr. Dlngloy'a estimates, It la
oiuk to coat tour uines aa much to light
naln for one rear In 1893 as It cost in
tight Great Britain (or the eight years
fro 1776 to 1733. The rr of 1818,
which lasted two roars and eight
months, cost tho United States n little
over $107,000,000, nnd to carry it on we
put in the field 670,000 troops, nearly
three times as many as wo now have
under nrmB. Tho Mexican war, which
lasted two years and three months, cost
the American peoplo $100,000,000, and
112,000 troops were engaged in it. If
the number of our troops who carried
our flag victoriously to tho capital of
Mexico had bcon doubled they would
have about equaled the number of the
ermy now In the field against Sonln, and
the cost of their two years and thrf e
months of operations would liavo been
about $200,000. From which It Is a
plain deduction that, with Ho same
number of men nnder arms, a year of
war iu the 1898 style is about flvo times
as expensive as was a year of war of the
1810 stylo.
No fair comparison can bo made bo
tween the cost of a civil war and a for
eign war. In tho nature of the caso n
civil war is far more destructive of prop
erty and values, nnd, by reason ot its
menace to the very existence of the na
tion, far more expensive, because when
a nation's lifo is at stake its credit is at
the lowest point, and monoy can be
raised only on the most exacting terms.
The cast of our great civil conflict has
been put down at $0,189,020,909, but
that estimate Includes all expenses
crowing out of the war, as well as the
actual cost of the military and naval
The poet Longfellow feelingly gave
utterance to the following:
"The little that I have seen of the
world tenches me to look upon the er
rors of others in sorrow, not in anger.
When I take np the history of one
heart that has sinned and su Cored, and
represent to myself the struggle, the
temptation, it has passed through the
brief pulsation of joy, the feverish In
quletudo of hope and fear, tho pressure
of want, the desertion of friends I fain
would leave tho erring soul of my fel
low man with Him from whose hand it
Tho following paragraph from a re
cent speech of Senator McLautin, of
South Carolina, will- bo of special inter
est to tax-payers:
"Prior to 18G0 the expenditures of the
federal government, per capita, ranged
from $2.35 to $2.00. They now range
from $5 to $0 Iri addition to this the
State expenditures average $9.10 per
capita, making a total of botween $14
and $15 per capita.
"As compared with these expendi
tures the Statesman's Year Book gives
the per capita expenses of Austria at
(1.51; Russia, $2.75; tho German Empire
including State expense, f o 90; tho Brit
ish Empire, including Colonial expense,
$3 07; Japan, $1.50; Portugal, $1-08;
Mexico, $3.85.
"Prior to 18G0, the people of the Uni
ted States were freer from the burdons
of taxation than tho people of almost
any other civilized country. To-day
they are more hoavily taxed than any
other people within the bounds of civil
ization." The wreckage and ruin to tee Spanish
navy thus far is as follows: At Manila
11 cruisers and gun boats were destroy
ed, to wit:
Reina Cristina, Oastilla,
Antonio de Uiloa, Isle de Luzon,
Isle de Cuba, General Lezo,
Marques del Duero, El Cano,
Velasco, Isla de Mindanao,
One ship not named.
At Santiago fi.ur armored cruleers and
two torpedo boats went down before the
American tiro:
Vizcaya, Cristobal Colon,
Oquendo, Maria Teresa,
Furor, Pluton.
The cruisor Alfonso XII. was destroy
ed at Havana, the torpedo boat Terror
was damaged by the St. Paul, the Reina
Mercedes was sunk by the Texas, and
several small craft have been disabled
or captured.
Hero are some 20 vessels gone with
little damage on our side. One gun was
disabled on the Baltimore, and the loss
in killed and wounded shows also an
equally adverEO difleronce to Spain.
The new American navy has established
its reputation, and the skill of our gun
ners is beyond dispute. Spain should
realize it and act accordingly, that is
sue for peace.
The following interesting story is told
by the European correspondent of the
Chicago Record in a late letter. It was
when old Emperor William of Germany
and King Victor Emmanuel of Italy
were on a visit to the Emperor of Aus
tria, who took, his guests out on a grand
hunt. The following is the account:
A thunderstorm overtook the emperor
when out shooting in 1873 with old Em
peror William ot Germany and Victor
Emmanuel. The three monarchs got
t-eparated from their party nnd lost
their way. They were drenched to the
skin and in search of shelter hailed a
peasant driving a covered cart drawn by
oxen along the highroad. The peasant
took np the royal trio and drovo on.
"And who may you be? for you are a
stranger in these parts," he asked after
awhile of Emperor William.
"I am the emperor ot Germany," re
plied his Teutonic majesty.
"Hal Very good," said the peasant,
and then addressing Victor Emmanuel,
"And you, my friond?"
"Why, I am the king of Italy," came
the prompt reply.
"Ha. ha, very good Indeed. And who
are vou7" addressing Francis Jo;oph.
"I em tho emperor of Austria," said
the latter.
The peasant scratched his head and
then said with a knowing wink. "Very
good, my pretty people, and who do
you aupposo I am?"
Their majesties replied they would
like very much to know. "Whv. I?
Who else Bhould I be but his holiness
the pope, of course?"

Washington, July 13. In nnswor to
references from tho commissioner of
internal revenue, all bearing upon tho
question as to whethor tho shipper or
carrier shall pay for and affix tho re
quired rovcuuu stumps to bills of lading,
etc., Assistant Attornoy General Boyd
has held in part as follows:
"The purpose of tho law is cloor. It
was to tax tho carrier and not tho ship

fix npon tho express compauios and
other carriers tho duty of providing,
affixing and caucoliug tho stamp, and
their failure to so provido, ufllx and

U a Feeler,
Paius, July 13. Tho officials of th
Spanish embassy hero communiofttod to
tho pross last evening a dispatch from
Madrid, declaring it camo from an
aathorltativo source It sot forth in
substanco that although Spain was
"only fighting iu order to maintain her
right to ropol unjust oggrosslou," sho
will contlnuo tho strugglo "until sho
obtains an honorablo peaco, whatovor
sacrifices may bo, necessary to attain
this end."
Washington, July 13. Although tho
statoment has been repeated day after
day that no overtures havo yet been
mado to our government for peaco, it
may bear repetition onco moro in viow
of tho oxpross denial given at tho stato
department to so much of tho stories
emanating from European sourcos as
jcok to crcato tho impression that tho
Unitod States govornmout or any of its
roprosontativos so far has mado any
movo in this direction. Tho fact is as
it has bocn: Tho first overtures in tho
direction of peaco must como from
Spain, directly or indirectly.
Tho dispatch from Madrid detailing
tho sorics of allcgod peaco conditions
was looked upon as a "fcolor." It is
said that no such proposition has gono
from tho government. Tho nllogod
terms Spanish evacuation ot Cuba and
Porto Rico, $2-10,000,000 war indemnity
and rctontiou of tho Philippines uutil
tho indemnity is paid aro iu goueral
line with tho conjocturo afloat hero for
somo time, but officials never havo
given this coujecturo uny endorsement,
aud if tho Madrid dispatch is put for
ward as a "feeler" it has not proved
successful iu inducing tho authorities
to discloso their position on thoso terms
as n wholo or separately.
Tho Spanish cabinet crisis is lookod
upon by officials hero as likoly to bring
about a direct issuo on whether Spain1
will suo for peaco or continue tho war
to tho bitter end. The rotiring premier,
Sagasta, has been for war. Now that
he retires tho queen regent must tako
choioo botween a premier and cabinet
mororadtcal than Sagasta for war or
else a peace cabinet.
If for peaco tho negotiations aro ex
pected to tako form very soon. If for
war then tho peaco conjecturo will bo
summarily disposed of and at tho samo
time there willboassuranco of stubborn
Spanish resistance.
Tho departure of tho Frouch ambas
sador Monday evening takes out of
town for tho present every diplomntio
chief likely to bo interested in auy for
eign movomont connected with tho war.
It Is ISellered lie Keeps Toral From Sur-rcndorlug-JIe
Iteuuked Ccrvcra.
Washington, July 13. Tho impres
sion prevailod in oflloial circlos when
public business closed for tho day yes
terday that tho flag of truco sent in tho
Spanish lines at Santiago at 2 o'clock
Mouday afternoon was still flying, and
that negotiations contiuuod looking to a
surrender. Tho basis for thoso negotia
tions naturally could not be vory broad
in viow of the injunction the prosidont
laid upon Gonoral Shatter to accept
nothing loss than unconditional surren
der, but it is supposed that timo may bo
consumod through tho indulgeuco of
Goueral Shaftor in allowing the Span
ish commander tocommunicatobycable
with Captain General Blanco in tho ef
fort to obtain his assent to tho surren
der. Genoral Toral undoubtedly has bo
foro his eyes tho vindictive abuses
heaped upon tho nnfortunato naval
oommandor Cervcra for surrendering at
all, so that ho probably will bo boundt
by tho direction of Blanco in his own.
It is not genorally known that in re
sponse to tho manly and pathotio report
by cable to Blanco announcing the loss
of his squadron, Oorvora roceivod a most
harsh and unsympathetio reply, but
such is'the caso.
Blanco's purpose in this may have
bocn to dlssuado other Spanish com
mandors, military and naval, from but
rendering under any conditions, and in
tho caso of Toral it appears that ho has
mado a stroug impression. Neverthe
less, confidence waxes in the spoody fall
of Santiago, though many oflicors fear
that the nest will bo found empty and
tho birds flown when tho American
troops mako their entry into tho town.
