We always tbinlc of Grant in his military capacity, as the great general, rather than in the civil, as president. General Grant wa born at Point Pleasant, Clermont county, Ohio, April 27, 1822. He graduated at West Point iu 1843, and served uoder Gener al Taylor in the war with Mexico, 1846, up to the capture of Monterey. His regiment was then transferred to the expedition under Geoeral Scott, and he took part in every action from Vera Cruz to Mexico; he was brevet ted first lieutenaot and captain for meritorious conduct at MolLco del Key aid Cbapultepec. In 1852 he served in Oregon; but in 1854 he resigned his commission and settled at St. Louis, whence, in 1859, he moved to Galena, Illinois, and engaged in the leather trade. At the beginning of the war of se cession in 1801 he volunteered his ser vices, and was appointed colonel of an Illinois regiment. In August he was appointed brigadier general, and sta tioned at Cairo. The rest of hi? life history is well known. In ineffaceable characters there are written the names of Donelson, Shiloh, Vioksburg, Cbick amtuga, and Richmond. At the closo of the war congress revived the grade of "general of the) army," and to this post Grant was at once appoint ed. In 1863 he was elected president, and served two term3. In 1885 he died. Grant was one of America's greatest men. Grant belongs to history now; he belongs to America as the great Robert E. Lee belongs to America. We admire bath for those qualities which go to make up a man. It is only within a few years that we have been permitted to get close to Grant's personality. General Horaoe Porter performed a very great service when he gave to the world those familiar sketches of Grant's every day life that seem to make the man such a vivid reality, as opposed to the statue-like Impenetrability wc have been wont to associate with the name of Grant. Let us then learn to honor Grant for those qualities that history, time, and the truest spirit in man, have pro claimed immortal. Grant was simple, earnest, persevering. He was perfect ly balanced, and held himself always in complete control. He was cool dur ing times of genera excitement and never permitted petty annoyances to distract him. He was kindly and con siderate to all about him. He always listened carefully to advice, but was slow to accept it. He tried to avoid wounding the feelings of any one on any account. Bat with his kindness of heirt there went a firmness of will and determination that overcame, that ac complished, that left a mark. He was one of those men that, themselves dis covered by the course of even'.s, them selves shape events to suit their ends. SECRETARY SHERMANS RETIRE ilEN'T. It would he the grossest negligence to leave unsaid a few words of apprecia tion upon the occasion of the public career of a man who has had an active part in the making of history in the United States for the past fifty years. John Sherman was born at Lancaster, Ohio, May 10, 1823, of pure Anglo Saxon ancestry. He received an aca demic education, then studied law and was admitted to the bar May 11, 1844. He was a delegate in the national Whig conventions of 1S4S and 1852, and presided over the first republican convention in Ohio in 1855. He was a repres ntative in the Thirty-furth, Thirty-fifth, Thirty sixth, and Thirty-seventh congresses, and was the Republican candidate for speaker in the winter of 1809-60, Be WILLIAM R. DAY, Who succeeds John Sherman as Secretary of State. went to the eenate in 18(51., and was r. -elected in 1866 and 1872. He was sec retary of the treasury under Presidem Hayes, and at the close of that adrnw -istration again entered the senate. He was president of the senate from Sept ember 7, 1SS5, to February 26, 1887. He resigned his seat in the senate to accept the position of secretary of state in President McKinley's cabinet. The strain of the work soon became too great, and Mr. Sherman has not borne an active part in the affairs of govern ment for some months past, the duties of the office having devolved principal ly upon Assistant S.ecretary Day and Second Assistant Secretary Day, The news of his retirement comes then not as a surprise, but rather as an event that has been expected and dis counted. It is possible that if the Spanish troubles had not come to a head so soon, the secretary would have been ecabled to keep his position until the end of the administration. But by this retirement Mr. Sherman loses nothing in the estimation of the coun try. He himself could not but feel that his powers were lessening that young er and stronger men ought to have the responsibilities as well as the dutiei f the great office, and while there is a certain feeling of sadness that will in vade our consciousness when an old man is force! to leave the ranks in the midst of a mortal conflict in life's bat tle and go to the rear, nevertheless that other feeling, of gratitude and ex ultation in the Knowledge of work well done, should and must prevail. It is with deep sincerity and heartfelt ap preciation then that we say, You have been a faithful servant: m-iy you long enjoy your well earned retirement in the house of the master. Judge Day, who succeeds Mr. Sher man, has been for twenty years a close personal friend of the president. Since he was induced by Mr. McKinley to take the post of assistant secretary his duties have continued to multiply until they covered in fact rearly the whole field of the secretaryship proper. His conduct of affairs has been singularly free from error, and the appointm nt commands the approval of the whole country. It will be remembered that Judge Day was offered the attorney generalship at the time McKeana was appointed to the supreme court, but he declined the pest. The new position is congenial, and while Judge Day is not politically ambitious he is a deep student of international law and has the natural inolination Of mind nd those other personal qualities which assure his success. Mr. John B. Moore, of New York who succeeds Judge Day, is one of the greatest American authorities on in ternational law. He ho' da recognized priority as an authority in certain branches, acd his appointment is not open to criticism from any standpoint. One hundred and twenty-three years asjo Patrick Henry, ia the cour.-e of an impas-ioced appeal for an uprising of the B-itish colonies in America, said: "Shall we try argumeat? Wa hava baei trying that for the last ten ye trs. We have held up the subject la every lisrht of which it is capab'e We have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned, we have remonstrated, we have supplicat ed Our petitions have been slighted, our reason-trances have pro duced additional violence and insult, our supplicat'ons have been disregard el... An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is ali that is left us." The cycle has revolved and history is repeating itself. Perhaps we should say rather that the nation is repeating ! itself but in how different a cause! It ' is true that the United States has stood for peace, and that every means has1 been resorted to to keep the peace, so 1 far as could be done without dishonor- j ing ourselves. TLis war is forced upon us, and we accept it. It is to be hoped that we all have a sense of the solein- ' nity of this step we are taking. Wo '. have defied the laws of nations, but we are taking our laws from a higher source than they. Bismarck says that the United States reminds him of "a mighty, haughty, overgrown giant, snorting with anxiety to expend on the world at large his unlimited physical pow er."

The Mexican Northern road has just applied the ''Chain gang" -system, and the employees are complaining. Business is pioking up on the San ta Fe, and all available cattle cars are being hurried south for use. Central Pacific box car No. 18713, which was taken from the wreck of the Saldim train Sunday, is now in the S. P. yards in a badly 'dilapidated condi tion. ''Three weeks ago" said a stockman y Bterd-ty, 'there were 150 cattle buy ers in Kl Paso, and now you can find but very few. Price, Knight, and Hopkins, of Pueb lo, Colorado, are arranging with the Santa Fe for a large shipment of Mex ican stock over that line. "Baldy," a character with the White Oaks road, was in town yesterday loud ly proclaiming the advantages of his road. "Baldy" says work is being pushed as rapidly" as possible in all departments. The S. P. is now pumping from six wells, Campbell's force having made the conneciion this morning. Well No. 3 reached a depth of 119 feet today, and will in all probability be complet ed tomorrow. "Hogs area cheap article on the market at present," said a railroadman this morning, " so cheap, in fact ,tbat big investors cannot afford to pay any price for fatten' ng them." Tcey are fat tened on the drippings of steers. The Southern Pacific baa given no tice through the Southern freight bureau at St. Louis of its intention to advance New York-Galveston and Houston freight rates, effective May 2. First class rate to Houston will be 57 cents for 100 pounds, and to Galveston 50 cents per 100 pounds, as against 37 cents and 30 cents per 100 pounds, the present rate. All other classes will undergo corresponding increases. The G. H. has no railroad physician between El Paso and Del Rio, a dis tance of 553 miles. Th's fact is greatly deplored by G. H. employees in that section. One of the employees, with a badly lacerated hand, was compelled to come 500 miles for treatment. There is an individual representing the road in this capacity at Alpine, but it is asserted he is not thoroughly educated in his profession, and therefore not a safe man to trust an injury with. Speaking of the "chain gang" sys tem, an engineer ani yesterd-ty: "The Pennsylvania roads have devised a plan whereby ra i roads could ap ply the "chain gang" system with perfect safety. The Pennsylva nia roads employ an inspector, whose duty is to thoroughly inspect all en gines when they enter the shop. Ho must test all the steam connections, and ia entirely responsible for defects on the engine when it leaves the 6hop for road service. The idea is a good one and works to the satisfaction of all concerned." Much has been said in the papers of late regarding the construction of the G. V., G. & N. (Gila Valley, Globe & Northern) railroad in Arizona and many doubted its completion. Never theless, there arrived over the S. P. late yesterday afternoon two Baldwin engines, Nos. 3 and 4, for the G. V., G. & N. railroad: The engines, while lightly constructed and disfigured to a certain extent with "Mother Hubbard" smoke stacks, are none the less service able. They will be shipped to Arizona tonight. In response to a question about the war, a railroad man yesterday remark ed rather emphatica! ;y: "We are al ways at war much worse than the Spanish and Americans are at present. When we have peace declare 1 ii one department, hostilities develop in the other. The wounded and dead are be ing carried from our battle fields every day and excite but little, attention we are slaves, they are soldier. We are fight;- g a battle for the existence of our loved ones at borne, while the sol diers are fighting for tne freedom of a less burdentd c'ass. Kansas newspapers are being asked by the ma' aement of lh Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe to tell of the faith that is in them as to the ar) varrajes of Kansas as a land of promise for would- be settlers. Tht-y are each asked to g ve a column editorial t-slling why people ought to locate in Kansas, what can be done with Kansas lands, what thy are selling for approximately, and what other vocations besides farming can be successfully prosecuted in the town or county where the paper is published. The management of the road, through Vice-President Paul Morton, agrees to ! talc A the, moat Biiitn.h1n rt thean editor. 1 ials, publish them in pamphlet form, and give them wide d istributiou throughout the eastern and middle states. Mr. Morton believes that im migration to Kansas, which has prac tically ceased for the past ten years, will be renewed from those states. Jtis scheme for stimulating it should oertainly prove effective. Railway Review. PROPHETIC SPANIARDS. Warning of Events on the American Continent Given in 1783. Jobn C. Wilson, in the Louisville Courier-Journal, says: 1 inclose you extract from communi cation made by Count Aranda to the King of Spain shortly after tne treaty of Paris in 1783. The count, among other things, says: "The independence of the English colonies has been ac knowledged. This is for me an occasion of grief and dread. France has few possessions In America: but sne snouiu have considered that Spain, her inti mate ally, has many, and that she is le't to-day exposed to terrible shocks. " w w 'I his federal republic is born a pigmy, so to speak. It required the support and the forces of two powers as grtatas Spain and France in oi 6U r to attain in dependence. A day will come when it will ba a giant, even a colossus, formid able in these countries. The first move ment of this power, when it has arriv ed at its aggrandizement, will be to ob tain possession of the Floridas in order to dominate the Gulf of Mexico. After having rendered commerce with New Spain difficult fo- us, it will aspire to the conquest or tnis vast empire, wnicn It will not be possible for us to aeienu against a formidable power establised on the same continent and in its neigh borhood. "Your Mj"6ty must relieve yourself of all possessioi s on the continent of the two Americas, prf serving only the islands of Cuba and Po to Rico in tbe northern part and some other conve nient one in the southern part to serve as a seaport or trading pla e for Span ish commerce in order to accomplish this great, thought in a manner becom ing to Spun, three infants must be placed ia Am-ric oae as King of M xico, another as King of Peru, and the third as the King of the Terra Fir- mi Your Majesty will take the title of .Emperor." While the above Is remarkably pro phetic, it also discloses the innate cowardly instincts of the school of Spanish statesmen to which the late De Lome belonged. Strikingly in contrast with the views of the count is the deliverance of Emi 11 o Castelar, Spain's enlightened statesman. On June 22, 1871, in the Spanish Cortes, be said: "America, and especially Saxon America, with its immense v:rgin territories, with its Republic, with its equilibrium between stability and progress, with its har mony between libarty and democracy, is the continent of tbe future the Immense continent stretched by God between the Atlantic aad Pacific, where maikini may plan, essay, and resolve all social problems. Europe has to decide whether she will con found herself with Asia, placing upon her lands old altars, and upon the -altars old idols, acd upon the idols im movable theocracies, and upon the theocracies despotic empires, or whe ther she will go by labor, by liberty, and by tbe republic to collaborate with America in the grand work of univer sal civilization " Spain has gone couuter to the policy of her eminent statesman, and now finds herself beyond the pale of civi lization, with a complete realization of the warning words of 1783. Too Fervid An Oration. The Hull manslaughter casa was con cluded lan evening in the district court, where the defendant was ac quitted, after the jury bad been out five minutes. As Charlie Patterson was concluding his oration for the de fense, Juror A. C. Lebreton had an attack of faintness accompanied bra plight hemorrhage. The court room for the time beiog was upset, but med cal assistance restore 1 tbe sick man. and the jury were able to conclude the trial. .Patterson's friends were guy ing him last night, about the effect of his learned effort upon the juryman.
