THEIRS Bill 10 DO HID OIE No Shame Upon Soldiers Who Fight in tho Unholy Fili? pino War. [From Nebraska Post.] H. L. Andrews, who has a sen serv? ing in the First Nebraska at Manila, says of the Philippine war: This la one of tlie most unholy wars ?ver recorded In history. It is to-day the astonishment of tlie world that America, the land of the free?America, "tlie cradle of true llb as Agulnaldo himself styled It, in one of his noble addresses to his people?America, who gained a foot? hold for her armies there under a pre? pense of coming to tlie assistance of those people?America, whom Agulnal? do nnd his people welcomed ns "Aml gos"?America, whose llag has been (for more than a hundred years of iis existence) without a stain; that Amer? ica, of nil nations on earth, should be the one to treacherously cross the ocean to the other side of the world, and de | llberately proceed to deprive a people I who trusted them, of tlie Independence [ they had gained, and proceed to this wholesale butchery of a whole nation, in order to gel "possession" of the rich and fertile country which God hnd given them, and which has been their dwelling place for uges and ages. 1 can scarcely look upon "Old Glory" now without a shudder, as I consider the blackness of this slain upon it. I That "Freedom's starry emblem" .should be so besmirched with tlie blood , of it nation whose only crime was that God-given holy desire for liberty! I am sure that no true son of America ever enlisted for such dastardly work, but on the contrary they did enlist because feelings of humanity prompted them to j go to the assistance of a down-trodden people, who were trying to obtain their freedom. Yet Infidel Spain?tyraritcal Spain If you please?never did drive them out of their possessions, burn their homes, or inhumanly butcher their young men, as America, lias done. Spain only oppressed them by priest-I of unvarying purity? seven years of ripen? ing, in barrels, before it's bottled and scaled.

That my noble son should be in that army, whose only object now, is con? quest for gain, Is a source Ot the deep? est regret and shame to me. All the true principle involved in this war is on the other side, and all the world knows it?that is. the noble prin? ciple '! love of home and native land to tho laying down of their lives in its defense.
