Sleek and smooth the horses' coats,

HOW THE SOLDIERS FEEL.
A Dlvldul reeling Among the Troopn hi
(Correspondence of the lialtlinoro Sun )
.Mnnlln, Jan., ISM.
Iteg.irdlng tho Philippine question, the.
Cnlted Slates volunteers here ale not at
all of one mind. They can be divided Into
Hit co distinct classes those who favo.
retaining the Islands regardless of the
right or wrong that might be Involved,
those who fuvor retaining them as a
tin aus to an end, and lastly those whose
view Is that the I'liltcd States has noth
ing further to do with them.
Several weekn ago about i'fJ repi esi nt.i
tivisof the .'in ions rcitlinciits had ameet
ing for the express purpose of debating
the qiustlon, "Should the I'nlted Stall s
hold the Philippines?" The debate was
decided hugely by the hearers In fnv- r
of tho negative, but It was afterw.i' Is
sail that this only went to show that
part of us were homesick.
Those wno advocate holding the Islands
regardless of right or wrong argue to tills
clfeet: That pilot- to the beginning ot th
war with Spain tho I'lilllppln. s properly
belonged lo Spa'n. 'I'll. it we came he.'e
not from any humane Inci ntlve (for many
of us were actually Ignorant of the exist
ence of Agulnaldo and his people-,) hut
simply to lessen the power of the eneitiy
and lo bold on to what there was In tho
line of available Indemnity.
That we are so convinced of the great
value which the possession of tliei is
lands would lie to us commercially that
we have arranged for Spain lo turn the.n.
over to us. That In doing this we did li-jt
consult Agulnaldo, because, while his
lights may have been Involved to a cer
tain extent, we did not see that Ids pr -dlcaiiieut
enabled 111 in to do anything, for
he would certainly be better off under our
control than ho had been under the Spau
laids. That if we did not acquire possession ot
the Philippines In the near future Kng
lund, 'Jcrni.iny, or some other nation than
Spain would do so. That little laiglnnd
and little Holland possissed colonli s up?ii
which the sun ir ver set, and that while
the I'nlttd States can yet boast of many
miles of unpopulated, uncultivated area
within her present conllnes, an Amirle.ni
had as much light to possessions In
Kasb'iu waters as a Dutchman or .in
englishman. That for these reasons
Undo Sam should proceed at once lo un
luii "Old Glory," lo wavo In all time to
come o;cr Agulnaldo's bones. That wheli
the time comes to divide China wo wllH.fi
on the spot und can grab for a slice
Soon the sun will never set on Old Glory,
aiwl then our duty will be commence the
colonization of Jupiter.
Those who favor holding the Islands as
a means to an end differ from the best
ch ss materially in their C'Uistructlou of
Hie word duty as It concerns us at ting in
our present capacity as soldieis of the
United States. They argue as follows;
While It is agreed that we should un
questionably letalu Hie Phlllpplii".'!, our
reason for doing so Is not a selllsh one ..I
all In fact, it does not take Into consider
ation commercial advantages to our own
people. That tho part we play In this
W-ir Is nol directed by human hands, The
I'nlted Slates Is simply an agent. That
the world Is distilled to become civilized
and we are beie In accordance with that
law. That now our bounded duty Is to
hold on to the Philippines regurdless of
protest or cost In order that through our
enlightened example that degreo of civi
lization peculiar to the United Sales may
also In time be enjoyed here. This cl.i-s
represents probably what Is usually term
ed the "noble minority."
The thlid class 1 have mentioned Is en
tirely opposed to both tho first and sooon 1
lu the first place, men of this class en
listed In the United States army not hast
ily, but from a purely patriotic and
thoroughly considered motive- th" Idea
that In helping a downtrodden people
light at our door we wero slmplj up
holding that fundamental principle of our
government constituting the Monroe doc
trine. This class Is of the following opin
ion: That the Phlllpplno Islands properly
belong to the nine or ten million of na
tlvo Inhabitants whom God chose In tho
beginning to place here. That whllo
Dewey was right In destroying the Span
ish licet stationed at Manila, yet that on
the day after the battle ho did not with
draw from the bay to return im more
remains to be regretted. That we have
no more right to assume possession of
these Islands because of their cmimer.
clal advantage to us than wo should bo
Justllled in taking possession of Knglaud
for the snmo reason. That In disputing
the claims of Agulnaldo wo Ignore tho

With regard to civilization, this third
class, Judging from the average American

not believe that tho United Sales Is In a

NO PAY FOR DEWEY.
'romotlon as I'l-opoHcd by ongrett
l.mitiH III it) Without n salni't.
Washington, Feb. 2(1. Conities has
made a ory edd mi-take In p-ldl.u for
the piomotioii of llcwcj ; It has made no
arrangement i.s to bis pay. In !h p lid
lug Joint resolution, uhli Ii bin Jusi pay-ul
Ibo Seiiale, n i mention is made of remun
eration for the new adinli'.d. Till" has
given i Isc to a good deal of i utit.itl jn at
the navy department, and among the
ymincsters theie have b' e.n nut a few
chtitkle.s of amusement. The navy hen
h al no fufl adliilial since Porter, and bis
sabiiy r.f $i:j.(fii, ,is well as tie- law cna'
Ing It, ilbd with him. Obviously, the le n
of Manila will vacaio bis pi'tienl cornml
slnn when he accepts the new one; !v can
not hold two tanks, at the slime time, ..ml
consequently he will lose the pa. to v. lib h
In Is cnllbW'd un a ie ir admlinl.
The situation Is thus a ury curious on",
but, of course, Congiess will reni' ly it
by an amendment to the Joint re.-oluti. n.
iJoubtliss a salary of $1.000 per annum
will bo provided lor Dewey, and h" wll
draw It fir thu rest of nls lite. The rc-o-liitlon
nilthoi Izes the President "to ap
point, by selection and promotion, an ad
miral of the navy, who shall not be plac d
upon tho r 'tired list, except upon bis own
application; nnd, whtnrVer such ofllce
shall bo v icated by death or othcrwi.-' ,
the '.like sh ill cease to exist."
Ti..'s is the first occasion on which tho
privilege of active service for life has
been granti d to a naval ollicer in this
country. Porter was thanked three tun a
by Congre-s, and this extended his aetlvo
service .To years, the existing law glvi'ng
10 years extra for each thanks. If he had
lived to be more t lis i Ii a century old. ho
would still have rimalned on the ii-lho
list. Dewey now receives (""' a year s .v
pay: on shore duty he would get only
SI-'W. As full admiral he will draw Jl'Vt.IH
a month under all circumstances a very
coinlortable Income for a widower.
As soon as the rs ilut Ion above quoted
has been passed by Congress and trans
mitted to the President, he will make out
line new commission, anti ecieiiuy i.oug
will send a cablegram to Manila congrat-
, ulatmg Dewey, who will be a full admiral
frcm the date of the commission. Then
'will follow a veiy interesting little cere-
i many in Manila Hay when the hero of the
war hoists his new (lag to the peak a
I blue rectangle with four while stars on
It. All the ollleeis of the Olymplu will lig
atured In full dress for the on-nslon; the
crews of nil the vessels of the licet will
be at quarters; the marines will be para
ded on tne decks, and the llagsk.p'.s band
will play, while a salute of 17 guns will l e
fired to celebrate thegieal event. Foreign
warships In the burbot' will Hi salutes
of 17 guns.
The admiral uppcint" Ills own chief of
staff, who must not be under the l.ink of

ly, he was chairman of tho beard of in-
spection and survey, but this simply
meant that the board leported to h'.ni at
Intervals iv meie foimallty. For u
while he had a room at the navy depart-I
ment. but he did not get along very well 1
with Secietarv l!obeon, and so he trans-'

In addition lo this $13.(W n year, the

use of ll vo heating stoves und one cook

on the coll ir of the io.it four silver stars
and two foul anchors In gold On each
sleeve will be a strip of goId-emhrlib red
oak leaves, which are liudgnl . peculiar to

straps will llspluy four silver stnr and
two foul aiuhors In gold. The dress sword

by law for a vlce-admlra!. However, It
does not seem to be expected that Samp

of Schley's rival claims being too slion'-'..
As for Schley, with tho navy d parunent

not much prospect nliead.
