Government has acted wisely in hurrying the departure of the cruiser Marblehead for Port an Prince. The trouble feared is that Good morning! The Pennsylvania Railroad don't own Wilmington. ■which may arise from the excitable Haytians themselves. Presi dent Sam has political enemies, and a long time, for Hayti, has elapsed since she has had a revolution, so that the popular excite ment aroused by the Lueders excitement may result iu an outbreak against the Government, or, what is quite as much to be dreaded, an attack on the Germans. Such an attack would change the whole situation, and, of course, justify the Berlin authorities in interfering with a naval force. We are also bound on other grounds to have a cruiser at Port au Prince. When the rupture occurred between Count Schwerin and the Haytian Government, the Ger man colonv, according to one of the Berlin accounts, was placed under American protection. Minister Powell is in high favor there, and Hayti also relies on our interference should Germany threaten her with bombardment, yet rumors of the approach of German warships have so stirred up the populace that it is highly import ant for us to have a warship at the chief port, and a landing force , , r . ' . , capable of protecting not only our own interests, but those of the Certnan and other residents who may trust to us. It is practically certain, therefore, that Germany will not regard the hurrying away of the Marblehead several davs earlier than was expected as an act unfriendly to her. It is more likely to be viewed by the German residents of the island with relief. If we look uneasily and jealously upon any pressure exerted by the naval armaments of European powers Uion the American republics south of US, we must take care to have ships of our own at hand to guard all foreign residents, including our own citizens, from the dangers of mob violence. It ' ... may fairly be expected, however, that the excitement at Port au Prince'will subside with the denial of the rumors of German hos tile movements- Then the Marblehead can occupy herself with the customary winter inspection of Navassa, our little guano island in the Gulf, while the selection of Port all Prince as her headquar-1 .,, 111 . * , .1 , .rt, 0 XT ters will probably reassure and quiet the people.— I lie Sun, New York. SENOR Don AiiORFO Llanos Y AlCARAZ has sent 11 s from Hav atia a copy of his book in Spanish, "The War Against the United States." This amusing publication, which is very popular just now with the uncompromising Spanish population of Havana, has al -1 , , ... ... . _ ready been noticed by our correspondent m that city. Our readers may remember that Senor Llanos describes in an imaginative the "unavoidable coming war" between the two nations. Having followed with enthusiastic fancy the daily incidents of the struggle wav which lie believes to be imminent, he represents tlie United States Government, after many victories by land and sea, as finally be coming weary of tlie expensive struggle and suing .Spain for peace, humbling itself before the dreaded lion of Castile. The "mathe matical reasons," to use Senor Llano's own words, for such an unexpected result are "that Spanish pride is never abated before tlie rni'inv," and that "Spain never surrenders." Government, not desiring to maintain an endless and hopeless war, and wishing, above all thin Therefore, our restore ov.r trade relations with t itv returning Cuba to Spain and But Senor It is not the island, prefers to sign a paying to the Spanish Government a huge indemnity. Llano's mathematical reasons are not historically exact. quite accurate to say that her wars have always ended with the recovery of her territories losl by force, and the payment of indemnities Lv her enemies. Spain hash:-;', in liurope Naples and Sicily and the Netherlands. She has lost in America the larger part of the southern continent. Site has lost Mexico and Santo Domingo. Even in her own peninsula she has lost Portugal and Gibraltar. All these possessions were taken from her after wars which ended in Spanish defeat,' As to "heavy indemnities," possibly Senor Llanos can recall ar, instance where one has been paid to Sjnin.—The Sun, New York. in never surrenders; or to affirm that ^ I IE ADOUARTERS FOR Hats and Caps, Shirts and Underwear, Hoisery and Gloves, Notions and Trimmings, etc., etc., at ' 210 MARKET STREET, WILniNOTON, DEL.
