Inviewing th^ outcome of a war be^^tween the ITattad Ma^t^i an i Spain.
thereare several factors ;.i lain Into^aeocunt. The first Is the financial^standing of the two nations, the ISC-^mid the respective strength and ttll-^liency of the navies and armit s.
TheUnited States, with a population^of nearly 70.000.0IX), on Dee. l.

While Spain has ex^^hausted her credit and it would ba al-^most impossible for her to but WW any^^more. So that from the financial^stand the I'nited States lu's every ad^^vantage.
Thenavies of the two countries are^as follows;
TheI'nited States has D8 armored^vessels including II small monitors,^iinarninrt'd and live torpedo boats, be^^sides live torpedo boats and six gun-^bosts soon to be finished and placed in^commission. Our armored vessels srs^four battleships of the first c bus, (WO^Of the second Ha.s, six large two-tur^^ret monitors or coast defense vessels,^33 small single-turret monitors, two^cruisers and one rain.
