JHILE no declaration of war had been made between Spain and England, ac tual war did exist in 1570-1580; the English freebooters under Drake. Ra leigh, Humphrey and others raided the Spanish-American colonies and plundered Spanish commerce; English armies aided the revolvers in the Netherlands against their Spanish rulers; and the Spaniards retaliated in many ways, notably in sending money and munitions to the Irish, who rejected English rule. The conduct of English soldiers and rulers in Ireland in Elizabeth's reign was marked by a brutality and savagery : than American Indians might shudder at ; burnings, slaughterings, cruelties and atrocities were the rule, not the exception; and probably Irish hisCory knows : no more atrocious and bloody-minded scoundrels than those revered British heroes, Walter Raleigh, Edmund Spenser, the "Gentle Poet," and Lord Gray de Wilton. Spenser is called the "sage and serious Spenser"; his "Faerie Queen" mnd other poetry have excited the tearful admiration of Englishmen ; yet, as a plain matter of fact, he was a politician, grafter, plunderer and cold-bloods murderer. In his "View of the State of Ireland" he advocated the extermina tion of the population by sword, torch and famine ; and when not engaged in writing verse he was engaged in cruelty and murder.' His friend, Walter Ra leigh, believed in murder and rapine ; and both were ardent supporters of Gray de Wilton, lord deputy of Ireland, who seasoned his murders and burnings with prayer and religion. Three-quarters of a century later that other gentle mis sionary, Oliver Cromwell, made Edmund Spenser's "View" his guide book and gospel in Ireland. , ; : '. That earnest and Christian historian, James Anthony Frou?e, writing of this period, says: "The Irish, It is true,' were not wholly savages; but to those intending colonists (the .British settlers and soldiers) they were of no more value than wolves and would have exterminated them with equal in difference." These gentle heroes were engaged in spreading civilization and pure re ligion in Ireland at this time. v - Along in 1570 the Spaniards laid out Fort de Oro at Smenvlck. across tie bay from Dingle in Kerry, but it was poorly built and of little military value. Here m 1580 came a fleet from Corunna, acting under the Spanish minister's orders, and landed some 800 Italian soldiers, under Don Bastian de San Josepho and other Spanish officers, and they brought some 4000 stand of arms to help the Irish in revolt in the southwest. 'The expedition seemed to lack military value and the situation of the fort made it an easy prey to a resolute enemy. Gray of Wilton, with Raleigh and Spenser and about 800 soldiers, marched against the fort by land while an English fleet came up the bay and cut off any hope of escape or assistance by sea. Bad management and lack of foresight did not bring them in touch with the Irish they came to assist who, armed with the guns and munitions they had brought, would have made the advance of Gray's force an impossibility. The Spanish force was trapped, and after a feeble resistance they parleyed, surrendered and marched out with folded en signs, laid down their arms and were stripped of their armor. Gray, Raleigh and Spenser were as polite and nice as could be to the captives ; and when all the arms and munitions were secured and their armor had been laid aside, Gray gave the word and Raleigh, dividing the prisoners into suitable and handy squads, marched them out on the sands and had some 600 of them murdered in cold blood. A number of wives of Irish leaders, who had sought refuge in the fort from the troubles and raids of the country, several of whom were preg nant, were hanged by the gentle poet, and the Christian hero and several priests were served in the same way. The officers were spared for ransom and ex change, a clemency very displeasing to the Virgin Queen. Probably no more deliberate, cold-blooded and savage murder by whole sale is chronicled in the history of this bloody Elizabethian period ; yet Froude and a dozen other historians of his kind are able to defend and applaud it on the score that Spain had hanged Englishmen when captured in the patriotic work of piracy against the commerce of a country with which England was at Seace. Every time one reads the transactions of the Anglo-Saxon poets and eroes of Elizabeth's day in Ireland one begins to feel that Alva was an altru ist and Jesse Pomeroy a lover of his kind. One of the pleasant laws decreed by Elizabeth's romantic courtiers for the spread of light and leading orders that ."All brehons, curraghs, bards, rhymers, friars, monks, Jesuits, pardoners, nuns and such like shall be executed by martial law." Elizabeth's reign was the golden age of England ; and these were some of the rolden fruit. Despite Smerwick and a hundred other minor slaughters, Eng ish children are taught to regard Walter Raleigh as a noble hero and Edmund Spenser as a gentle poet. There is still hope for the future fame of Gerommo and the Apache Kid. . - (Copyright. 1909, by SJate Pub. O.) WE'LL LOAN YOU "VACATION MONEY."
