As far as the imports and exports of
merchandise can be. compared, the
total foreign commerce of the United
States for last year shows a remarka-'
Lie increase In fact, this year end
ing with June, has been the banner
year in American foreign trade, which
represents a larger aggregate volume
than in any previous similar period of
. oar commercial history. Figures
show that the exports- of the products
and manufactures of the United States
represent a total value of $1,200,000,
000, while the imports will be but lit-1
iJa more than half that sum. This
gives a trade balance of nearly $600,
000,000, or 100 per cent, in our favor
or the year. While our imports are
Ices in value than in any year since
1885, our exports are the largest ever
recorded. While the greatest gain in
our exports has naturally been in the
products of our farms, it is very grati
fying to know that there ha3 been no
.falling ofl in the foreign demand for
American manufactures, which, for
the year just ended, constituted twen
ty-live per cent. ' of our total export
trade. At the eamo time there has
been a diminution in our purchases
from forty-one per cent, of all imports
a year ago down to thirty-seven per
cent, for the year that terminated yes
terday. Our combined import and
. export trade, now aggregating $1,800,
000,000, places us in tho second com
mercial position of the world, we hav-
ijjg now passed both Cermany and
Trance, and following very close to

sill Wildman's brief message aroused
intense interest, but created no sur
prise among those omcials who re
ceived it. lor some days news of the
fall of Manila has been expected. The
last dispatches received from Admiral
Dewey and General Merritt indicated
that it was their purpose to force a
surrender of the city as soon as possible.
It is believed that they joined in a
noto to General Augusti demanding
the surrender of Manila, threatening
to make a combined sea and land at
tack upon the city unless the demand
was acceded to.
While no further information than
that received in Consul Wildman's
dispatch has been received by the ad
ministration it is, in a measure, con
firmed by a brief dispatch from Mad
As soon as the protocol was bigned
last Friday afternoon dispatches were
sent to both Admiral Dewey and Gen
eral Merritt, via Hong Kong. On
Saturday the British steamer Austra
lian left Hong Koug for Mauila bear
ing the dispatches from this govern
ment. It is expected that would hardy
reach Manila before decisive measures
against the city had been taken by the
American commanders, but every pos
sible effort was made to insure their
speedy delivery. If the report of
General Augusti be true, and its accu
racy is not questioned in Washington,
the probabilities are that ollieial dis
patches will be received by the govern
ment in a day or two at the latest.
The flight of General Augusti from
Manila created some amused comment
in Washington. As one official express
ed it:
. "Had he maintained his position,
hard as it was, until the arrival of tho
news of peace, he would have been a
hero, but he fled, and he will now be
branded as a coward."

Kev. Th ulna Dixon Take "Tedily TCoo-e-
Tolt" For n Text.
A New York dispatch says: "Eoose
velt, the Heroic Leader," was the sub
ject of a discourse delivered Ly Rev.
Thomas Dixon at the Brooklyn Grand
opera house. Many times as the ad
dress proceeded was the preacher in
terrupted by a storm of applause. He
said in part:
"I do not bolievo in waiting until
after a man is dead to give him his
just due. The man of whom I am
going to spealc this morning is not
personally known to me, but I love
him because he is a man and a true
American soldier. Neither do I care
what his politics are. "Whether they
agreo with niino I neither care for.
Every man must love and admire a
man who has the courage of his con
victions, and such a man is Colonel
Theodore Eoosevelt.
"And what of the recent acts done
by Colonel Eoosevelt? The moving
of 15,000 brave American soldiers
from almost sure death in tho Cuban
pestholes is diroctly the result of his
manly letter. Did Roosevelt stop to
think whether he would be censured
for writing that letter? Not much. He
was aware of the danger to the men
and he cared not whether his utter
ances made or marred his career. It
was he who was the author and writer
of 'Round Robin' and nobody else."
A cab'o dicpatch fmm MalrM fays:

The Origin of Clue Dlood.
After tho Moors wore driven out of
Ppaln the aristocracy of Spain was
held to consist of those- who traced
their lint'ip:e back to the time before
the Moorish conquest. These people
were whiter than those who had been
mixed with Moorish blood. The veins
upon their hands were blue, while the
blood of the masses, contaminated by
the Moorish Infusion, showed black
upon their hands and faces. So tho
white Spaniards came to declare that
their blood wos "blue." while that of
the common people was black. The
phrase passed to France, where it had
no such significance, and thence camo
to England nnd America. It is now
used arbitrarily to designate old aris
tocracy or families proud of their an
cestry. New York Tribune.

The Spanish government Saturday
night telegraphed to the governors
general of Torto Rico and the Philip
pines instructions for carrying out the
terms of the protocol signed by tho
United States and Spain and to pre
pare for evacuation. Instructions
were also sent covering the policy to
be adopted in the event of the insur
gents refusing to observe the armistice.

with this demand, holdiug all until
compliance is assured.
Madrid l'rens Plfplrafied.
The comments of tho press on tho
protocol aro a veritable funeral hymn
ou the destruction of the Spanish co
lonial empire. Some days ago the de
sire for peace made the people close
their eyes to the price, but now upon
reading the protocol, they realize that
tho cost is the loss of that empire
which Spain had conquered with so
much glory and that Spain now falls
to the second rank among nations.
The public mind is stunned and there
is general mourning.
Gervril Blanco telegraphs that Ha
vana is greatly agitated by vhe news
of the signing of the protocol and that
much anxiety is manifested to learn
the conditions which have not yet
been published.
Some uneasiness is felt regarding
the effect that the text of tho protocol
mav have on the Spanish voltiutc?rs
in Havana. Many newspapers express
grief and despair that the men who
lrought disaster on Spain by lack of
foresight, organization and ability,
should continue to govern the country.
