Freeborn County Standard (Newspaper) - July 27, 1898, Albert Lea, Minnesota-SManbcurb. H. G. DAY, Publisher. ALBERT LEA. MINNESOTA. We call them warships, but in reality most of our vessels are whalers. Even Spain will assent to this classification. It is most appropriate that the annexation of Hawaii should have been accomplished by the Newland® resolution. An Englishman will soon be allowed to marry his deceased wife’s sister. Robbed of this great question the house of lords will be in danger of dropping into oblivion. The present war has brought to light the fact that Dr. Antommarchi, who attended Napoleon during his last illness at St. Helena, is buried in Santiago de Cuba, where he gave his services free to the poor for many years. Exports of corn and corn meal last year went up to the unprecedented figure of $75,260,067, an increase of $20,-000,000 over any preceding year. The corn exported exceeded in value more than a third of the exports of wheat and flour. Probably the Ladrones will be the favorite American resort for nervous exhaustion. The Spanish governor of the islands had heard no news for three months, and thought the cannon balls fired in his bay were some new kind of complimentary salute. Joseph M. NoiVak. a lawyer in Cleveland, O., after ten years of married life divorced his wife and married her seamstress. Then he divorced the seamstress and remarried* his first Aife. In less than a year they were again divorced, and now Nowak has married the seamstress once more. One of the graiifying and unexpected developments of tile war has been the friendly attitude of Japan. So far as the formal limitations of neutrality permit the Japanese government has on every occasion shown its good w ill for the United States, while the sentiment of the people themselves is unmistakably friendly. The girl students of a school in Missouri sent tilt1 follow ing lines to some of the boy students among the troops at Chickamauga: Fare ye well, intrepid heroes, Haste to war with Its alarms: You’ll return to find us sh* roes. Waiting1 here with yawning arms; If the Spaniards do net plug you In the sanguinary tight, Hasten back and we will Lug you, In wild spasms of delight. Admiral De wry has once more shown that he is abundantly able to hold his own as against enemies in the Philippines and unfriendly influences outside of the islands. The German warship Irene prevented the Philippine insurgents from attacking the Spaniards on Grande island, whereupon Dewey sent two vessels to investigate, at which the Irene withdrew and the Spaniards, after receiving a few American shots, surrendered. On Sunday, May I, Commodore Dewey attacked' and destroyed ’he Spanish fleet in Manila bay. On Sunday, July 3, the squadron of Admiral Cervera was destroyed by the American fleet in front of Santiago. On Sunday, July IT, the Spanish army at Santiago formally surrendered to Gen. Shafter, and the American flag was raised over the first capital of Cuba. Th esc three Sundays are red-letter days in American history. It will be remembered that when Cervera reached Sant iago with Ids famous fleet a banquet was given him, at which the archbishop of Santiago made a speech, during the course of which he said:    “It    is not enough to win victory on the sea. The Spanish flag must float from the capitol at Washington.” It is evident from the way that archbishop has been begging Gen. Linares to surrender Santiago that he has changed his mind about hanging the Spanish flag over our capitol. Statistics published by the treasury bureau show that the foreign trade of the I. nited States for the year ended June 30 was the greatest in its history. The exports amounted to $1,231,311,868, an increase over those of the previous year of $180,318,312. The imports free and dutiable were $616,052,844, less by $148,677,568 than those of the previous year. Of gold, in coin, bullion aud ore, there were exported $15,405,391 and imported $120,-391.674 Of slver the exports were $55,-105,239 and imports $30,924,581. What is described as the,first American tramp steamship built in the L nited States has just been launched at Bath, Me., for a New York firm. She is 302 feet long, with 42 feet beam and a depth of 25 feet. She can carry 3.800 tons and will seek for eargoes. Americans ought to welcome this ship. It is the s.0rt of tramp we like to see. We have had too many of the other kind in recent years, trailing along our railways and through our farming districts in endless, heartrending procession. The coming of the now tramp may help the going of the old. The battle of 'Santiago demonstrated the value *Of balloon service for determining the enemy’s position in an assault. The balloon used at Santiago was connected by wire with the commanding officers of our troops who were thus supplied with important ki-formation concerning the location of the enemy. It is reported that this information wa# of the highest value in preventing our soldiers from falling into Spanish ambuscades. This highly successful use of the balloon for military purposes is another signal achievement of our army. The Important Happenings of a Week Briefly Told.

Shafter Gen. Garcia has announced that he will no longer s^rve as an ally of the United States army. The Cuban general says he will fight independently. The administration intends to hold Puerto Hico us a permanent possession. Advices from Manila state that affairs in the Philippines are rapidlv approaching a crisis and the city may be bombarded soon. At Manzanillo seven of our little gunboats entered the harbor and destroyed three Spanish transports, an ammunition ship and five gunboats. Not one of our vessels was injured.

Washington, July 23.—There were several events of interest if not of importance at the war and navy departments Friday. Gen.
