It is a sad story that comes from
Spearfish, S. D., to the effect that the
late Mrs. De Ledeboer died of a broken
heart, produced by grief over her son
going to the front with the Dakota
troops. The Dakota contingent was
sent to Manila to support Dewey, and
Mrs. Ledeboer feared that her boy
would never return. None but the
mothers can ever know how their
heart strings were pulled when their
boys shouldered muskets and marched
away under old glory to meet such fate
as might be decreed to them. But
the boys will come home one of these
days, and then how proud the mothers
will be of them.
In the opinion of Carlos S. Fox, for
mer United States vice-consul at San
tiago, the surrender of that Spanish
stronghold means the resumption of
business, with good chances for wide
awake, active business men, who grasp
the situation early to reap the great
est benefits. He says that, except a
match factory in Santiago, there are
no manufacturing plants in eastern
Cuba. Everything the people wear,
eat and drink comes from other coun
tries. This being the case, there will
be a first-class opportunity for all
manufacturing enterprises. The land,
which is fertile, but so far has not
been properly tilled, is well adapted to
raising coffee, sugar, tobacco and cat
tle, which, according to Mr. Fox, could
be sent to the United States without
causing competition with home pro
ducts. In the interior the land abounds
with mahogany, cedar and other kinds
of timber. Concluding, the vice-consul
eays that a railroad is needed from
Santiago to Havana, a distance of about
400 miles. This would greatly develop
the country.
The latest reports from the Arctic
gold fields indicate a decided change of
sentiment among the miners in favor
of seeking their gold on the American
side of the line. Such a revulsion was
to be expected and the idea is to be
commended. The Klondike is not the
only gold region in the Yukon valley.
There is every reason to believe that
there are just as rich deposits in the
Alaskan streams as in those of the
northwest territory, and they can be
prospected and worked under much
more liberal restrictions. The fact that
the Klondike output of gold has fallen
somewhat below what even the most
conservative expected is in large part
due to the needlessly heavy tax laid on
mining enterprises by the Canadian
government. The fact that the govern
ment has collected a tax of 5800,000 on
,000,000 is bound to have its deterrent
effect upon the full development of the
country. There is reason to believe
that the Canadian authorities have
overreached themselves in this matter,
and the marked movement that has
now begun toward Alaskan streams
promises soon to prove that Canada's
loss will be our gain. Forty Mile creek,
which was the original Yukon gold
field, is being worked again, and it is
Just as reasonable to expect that new
.and richer strikes will be made on our
•aide of the line as on the other. Am
erican prospectors will do well in fu

that the session will be extremely

justify the suspension of the constitu

members of the chamber will make
strong efforts to rouse the nation from
its culpa We lethargy. Prolonged dis

war are probable and awkward ques

responsibility for the blunders. The
discussion of the protocol is likely to
be prolonged and animated, but it can
hardly have any practical importance
because the fate of the Antilles is ir
revocable and the Philippine question

New York, Aug. 27.— The Herald's
correspondent at Manila says: I have
just had an interview with Gen.
Aguinaldo in Bancoor. The insurgent
leader declares that he is anxious to
support the authority of the United
States in the Philippines, and that he
has persuaded the other rebel leaders
to accept his views: It is his desire
now that the insurgent army be -dis
banded and return to the provinces. He
complains of, a lack of honesty and
military talent in the rebel leaders,
and says that he has not an army, but
only an unruly rabble. He added that
he trusts the United States will form
a free and liberal government and
says that the Americans can count on
his co-operation. The rebellion is
