She has met the proud Spaniard and he lies prostrate at her"'feet. All this IB well , It Is magnificent , j aiut'tbero remains one other victory for Americans to win a victory as far-reaching and Important as any thnt has occupied our army and navy. Wo have succeeded In every conflict , except In the effort to con quer ourselves In the blotting out of racial prejudices. Wo can celebrate the era of peace In no moro effectual way than by a. firm resolve on the part of northern men and southern men , black men and white men , that the trenches which/'we together dug around Santiago shall bo the eternal burial place of all that which separates us in our business and civil relations. Let us bo as generous In peace as we hnvo been brave In battle. Until wo thus conquer our- eelves , I make no empty statement when I say that wo shall have , especially In the nouthcrn part of our country , a cancer gnawing at the heart of this republic that ehall one day prove as dangerous as an attack from an army from without or within.

FEVER HOSPITAL FOR HAVANA Ileport tn the Surgeon General Stnten thnt it IMnee for Fever 1'ntlcittx IN Iluclly Needed. HAVANA , via Key West , Oct. 16. Drs. Lane and O'Reilly have made a report to tho' surgeon general. Insisting upon the im mediate establishment of nn American fever hospital here. The existing hospitals do not Isolate yellow fever patients , nnd the result Is that If a person Buffering from an other complaint Is removed to the hospital ho runs the risk of contracting the fever. This was the case with Stenographer Delbrl of the American evacuation commission , who Is suffering from malarial fever. Hl3 next door neighbor Is 111 with a fever of a differ ent character. Colonel Waring has found Havana dirtier than he anticipated. He says It will be necessary to tear open the streets and lay drainage pipes and sewers. He sees no rea- eon to fear an epidemic , ns there was mi spread of disease when the streets wore opened recently to lay water pipes. He Is greatly satisfied vMth the excellence of Havana's water supply. Industry and commerce continue at n BtandKtlll. Many planters and merchants who recently returned hero , anticipating an early resumption of business , are going abroad again to wait until affairs are set tled In Cuba , as they'do not dare emba in business ventures or risk a cent In tha present unsatisfactory and Indefinite condi tion ot political affairs on the Island. Ii ( the meantime the country dally grows poorer. The sugar and tobacco crops are unsown. That the condition ot the Cubans Is not eo > desperate or black as Is painted , outa'cle ' the fact that they are short of rations , confirmed by Colonel Rowan and Lieutenant Parker , who , after crossing the Island , cov crlng 100 miles a day , and visiting every Insurgent camp In the island , report that the camps are efficient , well disciplined and officered by men ot a high order of Intelli gence and education. From these men , who have struggled and suffered for three long years for their ideal of freedom , resistance Is to be feared to any solution ot the prob lem not having for its basis Independence.

THEY'LL ALL BE DEMOCRATS opulista Will Boon Bo Gathered Into the Bourbon Fold , ATE FOR ROUNDUP SET FOR NEXT YEAR Silver Iteiinlillenim Will Alxo Come mill Will Dimee with Joy When the Hot Iron Alllxen the lira ml. LINCOLN , Oct. 10. ( Special. ) Those have been keeping a close watch of political affairs In this state are now able o see two things that prove conclusively ho existence of the scheme to merge the opocr.xtla parties all under the , name "dem- cratlc" next year. The so-called "Reform 'ress" association , which is managed by n Matte county man , who also draws a salary rom the state , 1 found to have been sub- Idlzed by the national democratic com mittee , to bo used by it In the final tuck- ng away of the populist party. Along with his move may bo mentioned the clrcum- tanco that several of those who have hero- oforo pretended to be ardent populists , but whoso antecedents have In every case been lemocratlc , are now ongagca is circulating the campaign book Issued by the national ddraocratlc committee nnd which makes no pretense of being a populist document. One of State Auditor Cornell's deputies , who last year was the populist commltteeman for the Mrst congressional district , Is one of the lead movers In the scheme to circulate this democratic literature. They calculate that with the dissemination of the proper kind of reading matter for tha next six or eight nonths the popocrats will all bo In the right frame of mind to allow themselves to bo jranded "democrats" nnd the date for the final roundup Is set for next year. It Is ex pected that the "silver republicans" will be among the flrst to coino Into the fold and ; hat they will show a positive pleasure In mvlns the branding iron pressed upon .hem. Nehrnnkn City IlrlilKC Ciixe In Otoo county the most amusing feature of the campaign la the popocratlc story of "How Judge Hayward prevented the people plo from having a free wagon bridge across Iho river nt Nebraska City. " A man from Nebraska City , In speaking of the bridge case , said today that the part taken by Judge flayward as attorney for the taxpayers had resulted In lifting a heavy burden from the shouldera of the people. The Otoo county van said : 'Thoro never was a proposition to build a free wagon bridge. On the contrary , a scheme was slipped through , whereby the taxpayers were saddled with the burden of carrying and paying $100,000 of G per cent twenty-year bonds , to aid In building a bridge that was to charge the same rate of toll as the ono already crossing the river at that point. When the taxpayers found out how they had been worked they employed Judge Hayward to get out a per manent Injunction and prevent the Issuance of the bonds. He handled the case with such complete success that the big steal was defeated. Every detail In the case Is to the credit of Judge Hayward and the taxpayers of Nebraska City owe to him a ilebt of gratitude which they will not al low to bo paid off In campaign abuse. " Another Iteforni Fnlliire. The attempt of the state hauso "ro formers" t turn the Beatrice Corn Car nival Into a political rally was a ludicrous failure and It is probable that they will not again attempt to mix up their show with n carnival parade. Last year Che Bea trice people made such a success of the carnival and drew such Immense crowds that the popocratlc candidates figured out It would bo a good place to go and exploit themselves this year. They notified the Beatrice committee that they would be there to "review the parade , " aa if the crowd in attendance would not be able Cede do all the reviewing for Itself. The cora- mlttco could do no less than to mention on the programs thnt the "Honorables" from the state house would be there and a "re viewing" stand was erected. On the day of the carnival , shortly after noon , Holcomb , Meserve , Wolfe and several of the deputies arrived at the depot and wera escorted up town by a brass band. There was no ap plause , however , and the reception was nol gratifying to the office-seekers. The people wore too busy throwing corn at each other and thoroughly enjoying themselves to care a tinker who was there to "review the pa rade. " When the notables took their places In the stand nobody looked at them and right after the parade Governor Holcomb slipped away tx > hold a back room conference ence- with some ot his political appointees Meserve and Wolfe went over to the prin cipal hotel in the hopes that they could do some handshaking , and the passholdlng deputies speedily lost themselves in the carnival crowd. Over at the hotel during the balance ol the afternoon there was a scene that wouli ] have brought sadness to the popocrats II any had chanced to look In. Meserve am' ' Wolfe assumed a position In the center ol the hotel office , where they were Inter Jolnct by two local "reform" candidates. There they stood by the hour with their whiskers fairly bristling with expectancy , but nobody came near 'them , and the expected levee was frostbitten In its Infancy. The Bea trice people are now enjoying a good laugl : over the attempt to mix politics In a corn carnival. I'oiiouratlc IdillleH UNniiil The popocrats of the First congresslona : district are having a hard tlmo to get people ple out to their meetings and several 01 their so-called "rallies" have been dlsma failures. In sotne Instances less than hal a dozen people have assembled to hear thi "reform candidates" brag on themselves and In such cases the speaking Is post poned. This lack of attendance Is not be. cause of bad weather or Insufficient ad' vertlslng , but Is simply because the pop ocratlc voters have lost all their enthusl asm and refuse to attend the meetings Many of .those who have heretofore been radical populists have been heard to tall with their neighbors this year on the folly of clinging to any particular party and have announced their Intention to "voto fo the men this time. " In the meantime the republicans are hold Ing enthusiastic meetings all over the dls trlct. At towns where the popocrats hate to close up the halls for want of audiences the republicans find the halls entirely to small to accommodate the crowds. If thl contrast In the two campaigns Is n true In dex to the feelings of the people , the repub IIcan ticket will come out of the First dla trlct with several thousand majority.

NATIONAL DEMOCRATS MEET Clenrly Set Forth Their I'rliielplen III .Support of ( iolil Stnndnrd unit mill HeiiHoitft Therefor. INDIANAPOLIS , Oct. 10. The national commlttieo of the national democratic party , which met here , has Issues the following address : To the National Democrats of the United States : Your national committee , speaking for the national democratic party , congrat ulates the country on the emphatic nnd merited condemnation nt the polls by the people In 1890 of the dishonorable nnd dangerous doctrines promulgated by the Chicago platform. The moral Influence ex erted by the Indianapolis convention has amply compensated for the efforts made In behalf of unalloyed democratic principles , as held and taught by Jefferson , Jackson , Til- don nnd Cleveland. And today this plat form Is the rock and firm foundation on which alone a democrat can rest his polit ical faith. We , therefore , take this oppor tunity to reaffirm with accumulated force the principles of our party as enunciated at Indianapolis in 1890. Wo bellovo that the theory of so-called protection , which , In Its last analysis , In volves the spoliation of the many for the benefit of the few , la dishonest and that It directly nnd Inevitably breeds trusts , mo nopolies nnd those special privileges by which the cunning and unscrupulous prey on their uimuKpectlng and credulous fellow- citizens. The protective tax is not only dis honest nnd oppressive , but It obstructs that free and natural Interchange of commodi ties which would Increasingly tend to les sen Iho cost of the necessities nnd comforts of llfo to our wage-earning classes. It has destroyed our merchant navy. It has prac tically driven our flog from the seas nnd has forced us Into the humiliating necessity of paying vast and constant tribute to other nations for ocean carriage. Wo oppose the extension of this Insular'system to nny colonies nies that wo have acquired or hereafter may acquire nnd favor , as wo always nave fa vored , the widest freedom of trade. It Is folly to think of securing foreign markets unless wo are willing to trade with foreign countries. Especially do wo denounce the Chicago platform for Its virtual abandon ment of this great and time-honored prin ciple. The doctrliio of free silver Is nn exten sion of the protective principle. Free coin age Is the protection of a few silver mlno owners at the expense of our laboring classes. This policy , were It adopted , would rob the workers of half their earnings and , by unsettling'values ' , would bring about n paralysis of trade and commerce and reduce us financially tothe level of barbarous and uncivilized nations. Wo are unreservedly for the singlegold'standard nnd oppose In ternational bimetallism , so-called , ns both Impracticable nnd undesirable. Wo believe that the theory of , one standard and the se lection of gold as' that standard has been struck off In the mint of human experience ns the result' of , , a slowly developed and beneficent evolution In civilization. Moro than ovorrdo we believe that the continued cxldcnrt ) of our national organ ization Is desirable for the well-being of our country. There Istno other party thnt rep resents the principles for which we are proud to stapd. j.Our work Is not com pleted. We are , not o'nly against free sllvpr , but we are for" sound money. We protest against the pollution of the democratic party by alliances with ihoso whoso financial declarations are at war with Its old nnd true < creed. With the situation as it exists In some ot the various states wo have no province to Interfere. The national democrats of each state must solve their local problems In such a way as may seem to them most likely to Insure the triumphs of the principles for which the national organization stands and to the maintenance of which It Is solemnly pledged. Wo seek no offices and wish for no rewards , except those that flow from the consciousness of duty done. It Is our earnest bopo that our fellow democrats In every nook and corner of our land may realize their error In following the vagaries of the Chicago platform and may unite with us In the advocacy nnd promulgation of those sound and funda mental political principles which will lead to a ratification of them by the votes of the people , Insuring a truly democratic victory.
