The Official Paper of San Juan County.
THURSDAY. MAY 2Gth, IS9S.
THK IMOKTIIIKD TOWNS.
There is great uneasiness along our
long eastern seaboard about a possible
descent of Spanish warships. So far as
international law is concerned the un
fortified towns should have no fear.
International law is the development
of treaties and usage. The security of
the unfortified town is based on defin
ite treaties. Article XV. of the report
of the conference of Brussels, held in
1874, on the rules of military warfare,
and signed by delegates from sixteen
governments, reads thus: "Fortified
places are alone liable to be besieged.
Toy us, agglomerations of houses or vil
lages, which are open or undefended,
cannot be attacked or bombarded."
Spain was a participant in this confer
ence, the United States was not. This
law was again adopted in 1880 by the
committee of the institute of interna
tional law which drew up the Oxford
code.
It will at once appear that if the
principle were universally acted upon
there would be no need of fortifying
our seaeoast cities. Such measures
would simply invite bombardment.
The present prevalence of fortifications,
however, points to a universal distrust
of the observance of the doctrine.
Jn 1879, Chili, then at war with Peru )
bombarded Pisagua, without artillery,
fortifications, without any defence. In
the heat of conflict not much confi
dence can be placed upon the restrain
ing effect of the principle of the ex
emption of unfortified towns from at
tack.
The earthly career of one of the
greatest men of the 19th century and
oue of the grandest figures in British
history is ended. William Ewart Glad
stone, "the Grand Old Man" of Eng
land, in dead, having passed peacefully
away at his home at Hawarden early
in the morning of May 19th. He was
born In Liverpool December 29, 1809,
and was accordingly 88 years, 4 months
and 20 days old at the time of his death.
His father, Sir John Gladstone, was n
merchant and it in said of the sou that
"he inherited that commercial spirit
which regards business as the first con
cern of human life." He was strictly a
"business statesman." He entered
public life as a member ot parliament
at the early age of 23 and from that
time on for sixty years was almost con
tinuously in the public service in sorue
important capacity. He was junior
lord of the treasury at the age of 25,
under colonial secretary a year later,
colonial secretary in 1845, chancellor of
the exchequer in 1852 and 1859, and
four times prime minister of the Brit
ish empire, for terms beginning in 18G6,
1880, 188G 1892. His long and eventful
life covered one of the most remarkable
periods of progress and development in
the world's history, and so great has
been his own part in it all that "for
years beyond our ken, the light he
leaves behind him will shine upon the
paths of men."
Aside from purely religious and hu
mamtarian reasons the Pope had the
strougest possible financial reasons for
desiring a settlement of the differences
between the United States and Spain
without a resort to war. Seventy-five
years ago there were at least 150,000
priests of the Catholic church in Spain
and tens of thousands of nuns, and so
vast were the property accumulations
of the church that it had absorbed a
very large part of the entire wealth of
the country and clericalism was a rul
ing factor In politics until 1835 when
the defeat of the clerical party was fol
lowed by sweeping decrees of confisca
tion against church property. For
nearly twenty-five years there was a
constant struggle between the Spanish
government and the Vatican which
was finally terminated by the sale of an
immense amount of church property
and the issuance to the church of inter
est bearing bonds to the amount of sev
eral hundred millions of dollars. These
bonds are still held by the Catholic
church and constitute a large part of
the Spauish national debt.
For the nine months ending with
March, 1898, the difference between the
importation and exportation of mer
chandise by the United States amounted
to $470,961,693, that sum being the ex
cess of what we sold over what we
bought. No other country has made
or can make a record to equal this.
The reason is to be found in the fact
that no other country has an equal di
versity of climate, soil, industries, pro
ducts and resources, and hence no
other couutry is or could be benefited
in an equal degree by the policy of pro
tection.
The course of the new administra
tion with reference to beet sugar is be
ing highly commended by men of ail
parties and all sections. Secretary
Wilson's latest report on this subject
shows that the experiments of last year
were highly successful, and that he has
reason to expect that the beet sucjar
production of the United States in 1898
will l»e double that of 1807, and that
this will shortly Income one of the well
recognized and successful agricultural
industrial of the country.
The value of the sheep in the United
States has increased $25,000,000 in
round numbers since the inauguration
of President McKinley and is now the
highest since 1893, while the values of
other farm animals and products have
also greatly increased.
The currency arguments of the cam
paign of 1806 will need some revision,
in view of the fact that the money in
the country has increased $246,000,000
since the date of the Chicago conven
tion, an average of nearly $12,000,000
per month.
The regular daily an
that "news of a great naval battle is
houriy expected is probably stereo
typed and kept in stock by the daily
papers.
