Washixstov, Aug. 26. A document
entirely unique in the annals of war
fare has been cabled to the war de
department by Gen. Shatter. It is in
the form of a congratulatory farewell
addressed to the soldiers of the Ameri
can army by Pedro Lopez de Castillo,
a private Spanish soldier, on behalf of
11,000 Spanish soldiers.
The address reads:
"Soldiers of the American Army:
We would not be fulfilling oar duty
as well-born men, in whose breast
there lives gratitude and courtesy,
should we embark for our beloved
Spain without sending you our mot
cordial and sincere good wishes and
farewell. We fought you with ardor,
with all our strength, endeavoring to
gain vietory, but without the slightest
rancor or hatred toward the American
natioa. We have been vanquished by
you (so our generals and chiefs judged
in signing capitulation), but our sur
render and bloody battles preceding
have left ia our souls no place for re
sentment against the men who fought
U3 nobly and gallautly.
"You fought in compliance with the
same call cf duty as we, for we ail but
represent the power of oar respective
states, you fought as men face to face,
and with great courage as before stat
ed, a quality which we had not met
during the three yearn we carried on
this war against a people without
morals, .without consience, and of
doubtful origin, who could not con
front an enemy, but hjdden, and, shot
their noble victims from ambush a. d
then immediately fled. This was the
warefare . we had to sustain in this
unfortunate land. You have complied
exactly with all the laws and usugec
of war as recognized by the armies ol
the most civilized nations of tHa etrth.
You have given hororabln burial taf
our dead, you have cured thqir wound
ed with great humanity, have respect
ed and cared for oar prisoners nnc
their comfort, and, lastly, tons, whose
coudition was terrible, you have given
freely of food, of your stoelt of modi;
tines and yeu have honored us witn
"Wit a this high sentiment of appre-
those people sre not sble to exercise or
evjoy their liberty, for tbey will find
it a harden to comply with the laws
which govern civilized communities.
"From 11,000 Spanish soldiers.

Mustering Out.
(From the Los Angeles- Tlmes.l -
Now that the war is over, the muster
ing out of troops ba already begun,
and will doubtless be continued as fast
as practicable until only enough men
are retained in the service to oorry out
the plans of the government in the new
territory over which we have acquired
control, and to maintain our national
defenses. The number of men who
will be required for these purposes
cannot now be accurately determined,
but it is not at all probable that the
number will be less than 100,000. If
this number be retained, 150,000 meu,
approximately, will be released from
the service. Most of those who have
not yet seen active service will natur
ally be mustered out, as the seasoned
troops will be more valuable for the
service which will berequireduereafter,
The mustering out of tlii6 large body
troops will greatly reduce the ex
penses of the military establishment
VvLicu have necessarily been extremely
heavy since the beginning of the war.
But for some month to come these ex
penses will continue to bo heavy as
compared to ordinary expenses on a
peace footing. The evacuation of Cuba
and other possessions which recently
belonged to Spain can not be accom-1
plished in a day, nor in a week. It will
require, several months; and in the
meantime it will be absolutely
necessary for us to maintain at all
principal points sufficient forces to con
trol the situation to preserve order
and to see that the terms of the peace
agreement are carried out in good
faith. Gen. Fitzhugh Lee has estimat
ed that not less than 45,000 men will be
required for this purpose in Cuba alone.
The number which will be required in
the Philippines is Indeterminate as yet.
but it is not probable that the force
assigned to Gen. Merritt will be re
duced, at least not for some time,
Thus, altough the war is ended, we
shall be obliged to maintain a respect
able fighting force, at heavy expense,
for a long time to some.
Not all the bonor and glory belong
to the men who have seen active ser
vice at the front, though they bave ae-
qulted themselves most gloriously
"They also serve who only stand and
wait." The men who have been kept
In camp, suffering all the discomforts
of camp life and longing to be sent to
the front, where they could do battle
for their country, are entitled to the
fullest meed of praise, for their patience
their cheerfulness nnder unpleasant
conditions. No one doubts that tbe
men who remained behind, under
orders, would have fought as heroical
ly, if they had been given an oppor
tunity to fight, as the men who faced
the storms of Spanish bullets at Santi
ago, and won imperishable renown.

home on official business to plan for
raising the snnkea Spanish war-e'aips,
and though he has gone about that
business with devoted diligence he has
not been able to avoid a great deal of
m'scellanous "recognition." Re must
have found this a trying country for a
modest man, but, atler all, he couldn't
hide for the rest of his days, and as
his fellow-Americans had accounts to
settle with him, the settlement might
as well come first as last. The culmi
nation of his embarrassments came on
the evening of August 4, in New York,
when, w'ith the conseat of Secretary

of the meeting wts to raise funds for
