it the Poetotttce at Ltair, Colorado, u .S«cn&d<l»M Mall Matter. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY ■! OHIO. B. MBRRIL.IJ Eoitob axd Pturtinoa SuwcEirnoN Rath: Os* Ymt M Biz Month* * J Three Months M Lamar, Colorado, April 30, 1898. War has been declared and this conutry has actually commenced hos tilities against a foreign nation for the first time in half a centnry. The Las Auima* Leader was print ed in red last week to announce the war. So far it has been the most Moody thing connected with the dif ticulty. It has been over eighty years since onr nary exercised itself at the ex pense of an European power. Spain is * l no great shocks,” bnt she will do very well to practice on. Great enthosiasru has been dis played in the valley as the soldier trains have gone through the past week. It is much more exhilarating to watch others going to fight than to go yourself. An exchange wants to suppress Lillian Russell, the fair actress. She has offered to go with the army as a nurse, and the editor is afraid that all onr soldiers will be trying to get ou the sick 1 i-»t. Spain has adopted free silver and is issuing a large amount of paper money. In addition to this her gen erals have turned Cnba into a good imitation of “Caesar’s Column. At this rate Spain will soon be a sort of populist paradise. A graceful act was the recommen dntion of Cion. VS heeler, of Alabama, for appointment as a Major General by Senator Davis, of Minnesota. The Senator said, “I know he is a splen did soldier because he chased me all over several states dnring tb'' late civil war.” Another free silver myth is in a fairway to be made ridiculous. All daring r 96 we heard the statement. “Gold never yet won a war, it takes silver and greenbacks to do it.” The lines for thi3 conflict are drawn on this issue, and no one doubts but that gold will win. Denver papers’ news prtslictioos — Monday, Teller will defeat a bond issue. Tuesday, the silver forces will never permit a bond issue un*il silver is recognized. Wednesday, Bailey, the silver leader iu the bonse, offers a resolution for an issue of $500,000, - 000 in bonds. Comment is unneces sary. A volunteer muster blank was car ried around Lamar this week and one signer secured. The late rampant patriots, who were so uproarious for war a few weeks ago, and wanted to go themselves and take their whole families along, all seem to be short in stature now or got overheated in the last war or have some other equal ly sufficient reason for staying at home. The unanimity with which the eastern millionaires are coming for ward with donations of ships, free transportation for troops on railroads, batteries of artillery, etc., should for ever stop all questions as to their i patriotism. By the way, what ore; those great silver mine millionaires,! Hearst, Moffat, Stewart. Jones, Daly,; etc., doing in this crisis? Urn! er —• well they are saving their money for the next presidential campaign. The idea of going out to fight for the honor and credit of such men as Mark Hanna makes us revolt at the thought of j war. The man who enlists these days must do so in the understanding with himself that it is to uphold and protect the interests of the money power. The . poor people of the nation have nothing ; to protect. —Field and Farm. The above is taken from the Field . and Farm, a paper that was so rank for war two weeks ago that itintima- J mated it did not care how many were ' killed or how much property was de stroyed,just so the price of wheat went 1 up. * Now that war is actually on, it f flops so as to be agin’ the govern- ( ment, and publishes such low down slush as the above. The Denver papers would disgrace any com munity. Among our Exchanges. “Spam is looking Tor nn alley,” says an exchange. The orthography is a little bad in the expression, but it seems to carry considerable truth. —Denver Times. • 9 * If Spain bombards any of.our nn protected seaside resorts, the indem nity the Spanish treasury will have to pay should at least result in larger pillows for guests, says the St. Loui* Globe Democrat. * * * 'While war has its enthusiasts, the battle-scarred veterans will perbap* never be able to draw from the peo pie such lusty cheers as greet the crushed aod bleeding football player —Guffey Prospector. • * * Forty millions iu gold received since the Maine disaster, and the Klondike yet to bo heard from! And S[>ain is looking at each peseta through a 40-horse pc wer microscope, believes the New York Press. * * * “Bryan's First Battle” sells for twenty live cents in Missouri. Mr. Bryan, no doubt, explains that it is due to the gold standard. Possibly it is, but the Missourians sav it’s due to the book’s lack of “standard.” — Kiowa County Preen. * * The speech made by Colorado’'- , jnnior senator, Hon. E. O. Wolcott. , in the United States senate last Fri day, was brim full of patriotism and eloquence. Senator Wolcott was loth to plunge this country needlessly into , war with a foreign nation, but whei the alternative of sacrificing American honor or taking this grave step cann*. there was no donbting on which side of the fence he stood Senator Wol cott’s speech is a docncuent that eve ry American citizen should carefully read. Wold County Republican. * m « Naval officials smile at sensational predictions of damage that will l*e done to onr commerce by Spanish privateers. Instead of having any fears on that score, they think that we shall have so many fast and for midable auxiliary cruisers on the »eas that any Spanish privateer that get far from home will be extremely lucky if it escapes destruction or capture from some of them. The Spanish are not ignorant of onr prep aration in this line, and they are not likely to go as extensively into the privateering business in reality as onr sensationalists have made them go iu imagination. —Ex. * * * The democratic Louisville Post says that Bailey, of Texas, in his “daily exhibition of impotent wrath and thirst for notoriety, is merely subjecting himself to condign pun ishment at the hands of the S|»eaker. and at the same time putting his party in a most humiliating position.” This is true. Bailey would be a very heavy load for any party to carry The democracy has been rather un fortunate in its spokesmen at many critical periods in its history. Just at present it is pretty badly handi capped by its record in 1800, but its follies of that year are trivial com pared with the enormities it stands a chance of committing if it follows j Bailey’s lead. —Ex. * * * WHY THE UNITED STATES WILL WIN. There are many reasons why the ’ United States will defeat Spain. It has four times Spain’s |K>pnlation ‘ and ten times Spain’s wealth and i general resources. The United States stands at the head of the great na ’i tious in point of intelligence, while ' Spain is lowest in the scale among | European powers except Turkey, i! Advantage of position is on the side [of the United States, the pricipal seat 'I of war. Cuba, being only al>ont 3001 J miles from Key West, while it is ; ;>000 miles from Spain. Our regular | armv is, for its size, the best in the j world, and onr volunteers, as was ! shown by the experience of the civil I war, can be transformed into thor-' ; oughly trained and eilicient soldiers f quicker tlian those of any other na j tion. while Spain's soldiers in Cuba are nudrillod and inefficient. Pres | tige and confidence are on our side, j the United States having been a vic i tor in all its wars, while Spam has , been defeated in every important war in which she has participated since the days of Philip II., three centuries ago.

About 100,000 pounds of eiderdown is collected annually in Iceland, 7.000 pounds being exported to foreign coun tries. Formerly the peasants used to received over 21 shillings a pound for it, but the price has now fallen to half that amount. The peasants seldom re ceive money, and are obliged to barter their down for merchandise furnished by the Danish merchants at the little settlements on the fjords.
