The Orcas Entertainers have made
or are making all needful arrangements
for a rousing celebration of the great
national holiday at Orcas next Mon
day. A fine literary program is prom
ised, to be followed by a variety of
sports which are ever popular with
both participants and observers. Those
who do not bring their own lunches
can obtain good meals on the grounds.
There will be music and a "hop" in
the evening.
The owners of tHe "Mosquito fleet"
at Roche Harbor are disappointed be
cause there is not to be a celebration
there on the 4th \ of July, with yacht
racing prominent among: the sports.
It really does seem as though the
county seat should lead in the celebra
of the national holiday, instead of tak
ing a "back seat" year by year, and
that more attention should be paid dur
ing the summer season to the exhila
rating and enjoyable sport of yacht
racing on our matchless waters.
The catalogue of the University of
Washington for the year 1897-98 has
been issued, and it contains much valu
able information for student? and
others Interested in our state univer
sity and in educational matters. The
faculty, with the other officers of the
university, numbers twenty-eight per
sons; the usual collegiate and post
graduate courses of study are offered;
substantially the same advantages,
and in some particulars far greater ad
vantages, can be had at our own uni
versity than can be had at the same
grade of school in the eastern states.
We would call especial attention at
this time to the revenue act, recently
passed by congress, and which will go
into effect on July Ist. A notice of
this statute was published in The
Islander of June 16. We would ad
vise all person's engaged in business to
obtain the full text of the act for care
ful perusal and study, as many busi
ness transactions will be effected by
the law; deeds, mortgages, bonds,
notes, certificates, contracts, checks,
insurance policies and many other
legal and business documents will now
have to be stamped before they can be
properly executed or recorded and
legally binding, and a violation of the
law may mean fine or imprisonment.

Two British ships sailed from Phila
delphia on the 25th inst. with nearly
6,000 tons of coal for Admiral Dewey'a
fleet at Manila.
It is announced that another army of
18,000 men is to be sent to re-inforce the
present army under Gen. Shatter, now
advancing against Santiago.
Marshal Campos, formerly governor
general of Cuba, is quoted as saying
that "a majority of the nation is eager
for peace, and averse to any revolution
or civil war."
The Spanish are said to have a force
of 12.0U0 regulars at Santiago, 10,000 at
Holguiu and 15,000 at Manzanilio. The
insurgents are expected to keep the
Holguin and Manzafcillo forces from
reaching Santiago.
What's the matter with the Ha
waiians? They are all right. The
day annexation is announced they
will have a regiment all ready for ser
vice at Manila if they are needed.
The decision of the administration
to "carry the war into Africa" by send
ing a naval force into Spanish waters
will be received with satisfaction. It
is said that this course has been de
cided ou in case Camara's fleet has
really and truly sailed for Manilia.
However, that should make no differ
ence. We have plenty of ships with
which to sink Camara's fleet, and it
would prove perfectly satisfactory to
the people if it should be met and
whipped, instead of leaving it to be
dealt with by Dewey.
A leading Madrid paper publishes a
report to the effect that the peace con
ditions suggested by the government of
the United States include:
The poaessiou by the United States of
the island of Porto Rico.

Cuba under a protectorate of the United
The establishment of a naval station

A fight took place on the 24th inst.
between a Spanish force estimated at
2,000, and less than 1,000 U. S. cavalry
within a few miles of Santiago. The
Spaniards were driven into the city
with considerable loss, while the Amer
ican force suffered a loss of thirteen
killed and quite a number wounded.
The regulars were in command of Gen.
Young, and the "Rough Riders" were
in the fight at another place under
command of Col. Wood and Lieut-
Col. Roosevelt. Sergeant Hamilton
Fish, who was secretary of state in the
cabinet of President Grant, was among
the killed, as was also Capt. Allen W.
Capron, of troop L, of the "Rough
Riders," Major Brodie, the noted In
dian fighter, was wounded.
The victims of our first skirmish of
any account on Cuban soil show the
cosmopolitan character of the men
who are fighting for their country.
Regulars and volunteers were alike
engaged and side by side fell sons of
millionaires and cowboys from the
plains, college men and workingmen,
drawn from every section of this great
nation. All showed equal bravery
aud the glory of it is that none faltered
nor held back from duty in the face of
death. At no point have American
pluck and daring been found lacking,
from the time Dewey started into Ma
nila's torpedoed harbor or Hobson took
his forlorn hope into Santiago. The
Yankee lads have been ready and
anxious on every occasion to be chosen
for deeds of dariug and glory.
