partment declines to make any com ment as to the accuracy of the various guesses that have been made in the effort to ascertain just what point has been selected for the landing There is likely to be a lapse of a day or two between the arrival of the ex pedition and the notification of the fact to the unless some merchant vessel crossing to Thomas should sight the American After the department

is cast upon reports of recent exciting events among the Cubans at or near Santiago owing to the failure of Shatter to make any report upon them and Inasmuch as he has made less Important subjects matter for it is hard to understand he should fail to mention an event of such importance as the reported at tack by Garcia upon Spanish troops on their way to surrender to There was no health report received from Shafter but so far from being discouraging this is believed to indicate the continuance of the Im proved conditions reported yesterday and the day before as to the health of the The War department is while keeping a close eye upon Miless looking with interest for detailed mail reports from Shaf telling of the engagement preced ing and leading up to the surrender of It was reported today thnt Astor of Shafters staff was due in bringing with him the full capitulation signed by the and it was expected that Shafters preceding reports would accompany up to the close of the which to

the several fights between the squadron and the shore CREATING RESERVE It is the purpose of the War depart ment to begin once the examination of the plans devised by Secretary Al ger for the creation of reserve camps and boards of staff officers arc now en gaged in various localities looking af ter suitable camp sites and making preliminary arrangements for acquir ing the right to use those and arranging for water The in tention is not to be caught through any contingency with large numbers of troops at central points in the midst of an epidemic of any with no place to remove It was for this reason that Fernan dina was selected some time ago as one of these reserve and within the two days the value of this polio has been amply as otherwise there would have been no suitable place to which to remove the troops from One of the reserve camps is likely to be located in the valley of the about forty miles above and will be very con venient for the reception of troops from Camp Alger in case it is deemed neces sary for the health of the soldiers to remove The State department completed the engrossment of the joint resolution adopted by Congress extending the thanks of that branch of the

is looking al though showingsomewhat the effects of the hard work attendant upon of the most exciting and important sessions of Congress held in the last thirtyfive In reply to a question as to whether he would talk on Senator Can non said that he had no hesitancy in expressing his views on State and Just at the very threshold of an important political in this State and in many States East and politics was a live subject and one that should be because the approaching campaign would be no less important than was the campaign of or than the campaign of 1900 would As an earnest and ardent supporter of bimet he believed the coming cam paign to be one the effects of which would be and one hav ing a decided influence on the cam paign of and for that reason the discussion of the political situation and the great issue before the people could not be EFFECT OF THE The ons central thought which is in the minds of bimetalists What effect will the present war have on the silver question and this question was asked the In reply he said Among the un thinking portion of the among those who wait to be pushed along with some popular and who do not reason out a situation for the war will undoubtedly draw atten tion and support away from bimetal Here in Utah there will be less trouble along that line than in many of the States further because the people of Utah do their own and are not thrown off their balance by any intervening questions that may arise from time to to the would obscure the main This war is not a war waged by the Republican nor by any par ty it is the war of the American peo and they are standing behind the Administration for the cause of hu manity and the success of the Amer ican The Republican party hap pened to be placed in power just at a critical when a most difficult sit uation presented itself but the Chief Executive of the Nation is doing the utmost in his power to do his duty by the American people and by his and in the endeavor he has the earnest and unswerving support of the American without regard to Thus the war is not an issue and cannot be an because while the Republican Executive is conduct ing he is so engaged be cause it was the will of the whole peo ple that war should be and the whole people are supporting the as they would support any Administration charged with the same high the close of the there may arise questions of public which may form the basis of a politi cal but these must be settled when they But if this country is to take to itself added glory of added territory and new then in that event the financial question becomes of still greater importance than ever for obvious SILVEK The present situation indeed looks forward to a time hear at hand when the question of remonetization of silver will become an almostImperative ne This war la being waged at an expense away beyond the mark of a million dollars per day climb insc up rapidly to the two million mark and if it should prove to1 be a long should complications which would extend the conflict beyond present at the close there would have been created an enormous war represented by bonds for the payment of which there is no provision When the Civil war the great war rlebt would have settled down upon the people with crushing but for the act of the Govern ment in issuing large amuunm o1 panyp thus easing the burden by means of an enlarged circulation me HOW EXPENSES ARE At the present time the burden of thewar is not felt by the Money is being paid out by the Gov ernment from bond and the extra internal revenue The increased Government has made a better and more active market for wool and and also for the food But when the war and the begin then to pay back the money thus and to feel the inevitable decline of be the when the will feel the burden and the need of more Then isthe time when the people the country will call for a bimetallic and the issue of 1S6 will still be the And it is the issue the only issue on which the people are the question whether this countrys financial system shall be built on gold alone or on the two money metals standing side by To the thinking the present war but emphasizes the importance of the financial question as a political is sue before the The issue this fall and in 1900 must of a necessity be this for the issue has been forced by the Republi can Never again while the Re publican party remains under its pres ent leadership can a good Republican say that he is a silver advocate politi for that has been denied REPUBLICANS FOR The League of Republican at its recent session in declared as strongly as it that it was un compromisingly in favor of the single gold standard and as if to make its position all the more went on in another paragraph to say that it was uncompromisingly against the free and unlimited coinage of did not put in the usual catchphrase unless by international That plastform was accepted by Repub lican leaders and there has been no word of dissent from it In the utterances of the league were inspired by the Republican lead ers in and these men now make bald to say that they and their party are for the single gold They even go so far as to admit that they carried the election of 1896 by a and that the plank the Republican party really meant the gold Now the Republican party having in this year forced the financial issue before the and having an nounced authoritatively that it is un compromisingly in favor of the single gold the only thing that the bimetalists can do is to array them selves against that Nothing else can be That party has made the gold monometalism bi and has espoused the for so that there can be no place in the Republican ranks for men who be lieve gold monometalism to the curse of our financial UNION What then is to be done Are the friends of silver to put a divided force to face the solid ranks of the mono metalists Such a course would be the height of It would be an absurd The money power has made an issue and has taken its To oppose that power with divided one party clamoring for one is another party for another would render bimetalists impotent and would make them the laughing stock of the Republican gold Without intending such a the Republi can party has so worked its plans that the only logical course for the oppon ents of the gold standard to pursue is that of If there is only one issue before the American and the Republican party has taken one side of that the only thing left for all the balance of the people to do is to unite on the other That is the only thing that can be and that course has been forced by the Re publican When the opposition has placed itself squarely upon an is the only thing left to do is for the balance of the people to unite on the other side of that issue and accept that gage of In cooperation of the silver forces is the only hope for HOW IT CAN BE Not that the Populist and Silver Republican organizations be but that each organiza tion remain and each the ally of the other in the great Here in Utah it is more important that this be done than in any other If the friends of silver here in the very heart of the West allow minor differ ences or the hope for spoils of office to divide what hope have we that the silver forces inthe East will combine in and how ask them to so combine when we our selves refuse There are already in Utah cooperation between the Silver Republican and the and the question now is the Dem ocratic party cooperate Up to the present time the Demo cratic party has felt strong enough in this State to elect its and the leaders consequently do or have not so desired In Wyoming the Democrats are not strong enough alone to carry the and they want This method of cooperation is on the Spoils of Office The demands of the pres ent are that spoils of office tae relegated to rear that the petty strifes of personal politics be all laid aside and forgotten in the grand struggle for which we all hold so Devotion to principle must rise above personal ambition and mere party ad vantage if the money power is to be In this year of 1898 we are but preparing for the great battle of and it is essential ir every way that the silver forces get The result in shows the absolute necessity Kor cooperation for if the silver forces cannot win when there can beno such thing as success for and the strug gle might as well be Here in I notice that the Herald is op posing but I believe the Democratic party will not commit the great mistake of refusingto join hands with the other silver advocates in this great I notice that every few clays the Herald has an editorial on how the fusion1 movement is and this leads me to believe that the idea of co operation is so strong among the Demo cratic rank and file that the leaders are afraid the people wil revolt from their rule and make cooperation a From every section the same informa tion that the people are wanting united action on the one great It is a poor argument to use that cooperation will destroy party organ for it will On the other if the Democratic party leaders refuse to join forces in the common the people who love principle will themselves leave the party that denies them the right to vote for a straight bimetallic and the shell of the party only would be If these peo ple could have the opportunity to vote for straight bimetalism in their own party they would stay within that and the as an organiza would come out of the campaign as strong as it is Who the1 men for office may be is not material where a principle is it is unpatriotic to trifle over candidates and the spoils of The time has come when the principle should be held dearer than if it is then the united money interest will secure such a power that it cannot be overthrown by the NOT A PERSONAL When asked if he were a candidate for the office of Senator Cannon said You may say this J have been before the people three times for their and each time I have been called to take up the campaign by the With me it is not question of Let the bimetallic forces get together and make a united campaign in this State for the only issue now being the American in the campaign let the people say whom they desire for that and the man they select will be their whoever he may The cause is greater than any man principle is far beyond any Let the people vote together for tha free coinage of silver as against Republican gold monometal and the question of who shall rep resent the people will take care of it It is not the time to discuss can The question to be discussed and decided is how to show the bime tallic forces of thiscojjitry the full bimetallic strength of and to send them good cheer for the battle of But it must be borne in mind that the Republican party has made the financial question the financial is sue of the year and has declared itself uncompromisingly for the single gold The mask is off and the battle If binujtalism is to win this year and in all the people who are opposed to the single gold standard must put a solid and united front to the That is the basis which the Republican party has made for the and it cannot be THIS
