OiTioial Paper of Lincoln County When the cuban soldiers are paid oil they will linve money to Irani nnd there will be a hot time all night in Havana. We gave Spain if 20,000,000 for the Philippine Islands. We should have made n better bargain if we liad given her 820,000,100 to keep them. President McKinley has gone to Kentucky to bathe the nicotino out of his system, hope when he has done so, that he will tell us what he thinks of tho Philippine question. Las Vegas it seems will capture tho Rough Riders reunion as the people of that city have offered to puy all expenses of tho Rough Riders who attend Las Vegas is all right. There is probably not any groat number of men in this country who would rather be right than president, but there is any amount of theni who would rather bo rich than vice president. The disposition to bo made of the Philippine Islands is a matter to be settled hereafter say Iho Re publicans. As that is the case, the only use we can now put them to is to keep them for our army to practice on the Filipinos. So far us the wur in tho Philip pines is coucerned, it should be brought to n close by treaty with tho Filipinos if wo can get what we want and are entitled to. We iloti't want their islands except a naval station, but wo want trade privileges secured to us which will give us all tho advutitaes which wo should get from ownership of the islands, without any of tho expense nnd disadvantages, Of onrse, the war should not stop until the Filipinos do right nnd accept our terms as to these tilings; but so soon as wo ran get these things the war shuiild end. If the object lc to mako them n colony or territory of tho United Ülatetí thei) it should never have Lcguu. EXPANSION. 1 ho question of expansion now SO III IK. U talked about. bllllJUV menus the extension of tins limbs of this government, that we shfdl acquire foreign territory and gov ern I lit? people by military rule as colonists, or that we, shall admit them into tlin government as cit zens nnd give them cither a terri torial or state government. "Sim I'ly this and nothing more." As fur the Philippines, they must be ln-ld, if nt all, as colonies or terri tories of the United States. To now admit them as n state is out of the question, those who oppose expansion, contend that there is no authority given in the constitu tion to hold such territory us a colony and thereby deny to the people inhabiting it, the right of self government and in the second place, that the cost of holding and governing, them as a territory and making the inhabitants citizens, would be far more than the benefit received. Those who oppose ex pansion, simply demand that the people of these isla nds bo allowed to establish their own government and that the United States hold only sufficient ,nd for naval purposes in the event of war with any foreign power and that we also secure trade privileges and indemnity money expended in ac quiring the islands. Now, are you an expansionist? And do you want to mako these Filipinos citizens and nllow them to send congress men to Washington niter awhile, when they shall be admitted as a state, or states, to help make out laws? Or do you want this gov ernment to go into the business of establishing colonies and expend millions of dollars each month to maintain a largo army and navy to whip the natives into submis sion to government by force of arms? Those who think the men who wrote the constitution of the United States knew what thej were doing and were not a set of old fogies, are opposed to ex pan-1 sion, while the fellows who claim ! to have moro patriotism than I Geoige Washington and that the constitution is a back number, are all expansionists. The commission to inquire into the truth of the charges made by General Miles against the meat packers who supplied the Ameri can army in Cuba with canned roast beef, that the beef was em balmed, as every body expected, has reported that the meat was all right. Such report is absolutely false, as every one knows who read the testimony and was made to de fend the millionaire moat packers. The commission dared 1 not make a manly report and so tried to make such u one as would fool the people by making it as evasive aud straddling as possible, This report is understood to be such a one as was desired by tho administration; and yet, many papers assert that it is criminal to criticise tho Pres ident and his advisers. When mon in high ofliccs try to deceive j g its whereabouts then infonn the people in order to shield such ation found in deciphering old lat- cattle as thoie meat packers and Secretary Alger, the great incompe tent, they forfeit tho respect of people who believe in old fashion ed honesty and fair dealing with matters effecting the welfare of the country. The Indianapolis News sums up tho report us follows: The canned beef was not good for steady diet, but the packers were Nil right. Lagan wag iu tho wrong in buying hi much of the canned beef, but the beer was good and the piickrra wero (ill right, (eiieral Miles ought o have re - ported lug views and sut-picions about the bocf as soon as bo hud any; but Ihe bet f was excellent, Hnd the packer did their whole duty. Multitudes of wii-ties-eg say th beef made them sick, but it is not proved tu the board's satisfue factiori Unit the heef had anything to do with tho health of the troops, Inasmuch ns the beef is found by chemical Hnalyr.l to lio good, or ovtti better and tho pack ers were nil right. Home of Iho uuder ofllcers di l not do their full duty in in specting commissary supplies nsenrefnl ly us they should, but really n hirm "Vms done, as the uatiuod bsef wm of r cellcnt quality, mid - wlmi in more im portant tho packers with nil right. That seems to be about the suhMauce of the beef imitiirv's renort. I'. it tlm p. oplu have road the evidence, loo, oud they areaj't ut Jiuwiu cjuclusiuca. THE TUTTLE PAINT & GLASS CO.

An entertaining story concerning the discovery of a cavt, and a lot of Spauisb documents, together with a probable 'find" of of a quantity of gold in bars of bullion, has been fl'ioting sabrosa around Ijhs Vegas for several days past says, the Optic. A son of E. Gallegos, who lives near Las Vegns Hot Springs, in company with several other boys were esploriug a small cave in that vicinty, when tlioir Attention was attracted to a plain slab which had the appearance of havinc been placed in position nRRinst the wall. The boys in thuir enger search removed the slab, and a small opening which ha 1 evidently been hollowed out for a pur pose, end in the bottom of this small shaft found an ancient manuscript. Yonng Gallegos carried tho papers borne and gave them to his father who after wards submitted them lo Kihlborg, an expert Spanish scholar and antiqua rian. Mr. Kihlberg fonnd that tho doc ument was' written in both Latin and Spanish. Ho gainod enough of the sto ry bb told therein to learn that some thing like 300 years ago a party of Span ish and French colonist from Mexico had been attacked by Indians noar this locality aud all of the party tave four had been killed. Subsequently one of the survivors died and ha was buiiod closo to the cave ia which thudoauments were stored. The turen persons remain ing feared that they would never reach their country or fellow country men ntrain and fjavo certain directions to b i observed by the finders of the document n case they should perish. The. document 6tatod that in a certain direction from the cave and at a certaiu distance, the gravo of tho man who had been buried would bo found. According to certain other directions that were embodied in tho manuscript, a qnantity of gold and silver in tho shape of bars of bullion would bo found in the same locality. It was requested tint the find- Mn tKe of it tu tue hdr8 of tbose writ. ng (be document. tm nf tllí trciidiirn fnnrarrl n onrlain nut" Guided by the manuscripts tho mis torious gravo, tho sito of whh-h was marked by a Hat rock on which was carved a hand, was easily found and the fragmonts of the skeleton of a man uu oaithed, but the gold and silver were not there. Mr, Kihlberg who had decipher ed the papers offered Gallegos 8300 for his fiud, and T. li. Catron of Santa Fe being infoimed of the circuniKtances oll'ered Sl.üCO for tho papers, Mr. Wan. zanarcs of the firm of lirowno-Man.a-uares Co. was taken into the courideuco of Gallegos and the v are continuing the search for the valuable treasure This story will probably bo in teresting to n number of men who have spent more or less cash in an old cave it) Lone mountain during the last few years in search of ihe same treasiuo or a similar n!ulle to the above mentioned. The same amount of capital and labor expended in careful prospecting would doubtless prove a great deal more remunerative than the search for buried wealth wealth prob ably never buried, or if buried, long ago taken up by some one w ho had better means of detcmin- in and Spani.di manuscript. Wc have too many men in this coun try w ho are looking for something they havent earned. The democrats stood by the president in the war with Spain and they are willing now to stand by him in the Philippine war; but they would like to know what W0 ,. , , ., I are lighting for. If the President I ,aH H Vuvy uo lias not disclosed ! .. . .. , it the only policy, therefore, which the administration has, is to whip them kill all of them and treat with them ufter they tue dead. Of course he could not treat wi.h them now, for he don't know himself wh;it ho wants to do with either tho Filipinos or their islands; so of course the war must continue until the Filipinos are nil crippled, killed or jump into the ocean, and all because the Presi dent can't decide what to do w ith Ihom.

Eaton, Of EzZiv't llgtt Artillery, Aray cf tlis r:tcn:e. We gather u here our soldiers sleep ' In Hiiriiuj's departing hours, The memory of the brave to keep, And strew their graves ivcthjloirers. One sleeps beneath the northern jiivc, ' Crowned with the victor's wreat.'i : Another where the Southern r'tie f'eej)s o'er ihe dust beneath. Hut soft the asure skies surround, And i -hite the lilies bloom, Todeelt the lowly Southern mound Or wreathe the Northern tomb. For he who rests beneath the palw Strove in a hero's part ; Misguided may have been theartn, Hut valiant was the heart. Now, bid one oe liwir sonsdo brave - One cause their bosom thrills. Look! see me jlag above thin wave Upon the Cuban hills. 0, gray-haired heroes! ye who stand Where ence did paths divide. Place ye the wreath with clasp'd hand Your dead sleep side, by side. Frank Lexlie May t'o. Wonder if William J. I'ryan was presidont, if we would know what his policy was in regard to the Philippines? Will undertake to say that rot only would we know what, his policy was, but the Filipinos would have known be fore they began fighting what to expect from the United Slutes! but, with McKinley in president, we tue as ignorant as Ihe Filipinos as to his policy. To atone for the millions extort ed from Ihe laboring chistes Mr. Carnegie has declared his inten tion to devote the majority of his tremendous wealth to philanthro py and thereby justify tho (defense in his case when he joins issue w ith St. Peter on the other side of the river Styx.
