This District alone has consumed Staily Stamps proprietary and documentary. Perhaps the Esti mates of other collectors will exceed cd correspondingly.

K. Blythe of Mason Howard county times. It would not have been considered bad lost several ships and Many thous and men in Battle before driving Spain to sue for peace. In fact All sorts of european critics were continually saying before the War actually began thai while a Merican resources must win in the end this country might have a bad half hour at the outset. It is Only in the Light of the e declared expectations that the actual results of tiie War can fairly judged. Nobody finds even now that Cervera s forces were lacking in courage or in material equipment. Nobody questions the courage of toral and his men or mates Light of their defence of positions which con dered impregnable and which every Ody else has considered fit rhinely difficult. But join How the americans have nowhere met even a Little reverse carried apparently impossible positions with loss to the defenders ban to those attacking. In warfare these Are not results which history makes familiar. All the Lois of one Navy from first to last and on All seas do not equal those inflicted upon the other a single Shell. All the Battles of the War thus far have not Cost the american army As Many men As it has killed in attacking the most strongly fortified difficult positions. There will have to found a definite and extremely important cause for such disparity of fighting Force and destructive Power. The world Dow begins to 836 what the cause in. Free sovereigns fighting for the govern ment which is their own Are not to matched the Best trained and Best equipped forces of government which Are not of the people the people and fur the millions Given it is certainly Gratis lying to the Publ to know of one concern in the in 1 who Are ii of afraid to generous to the needy and suffering the proprietors of or.

Coughs and colds have Diven away Over ten million trial Battles of this great Medicine and have the satisfaction of knowing it has absolutely cured thousand of hopeless cases.

Every bottle Gawaran teed or Price refunded. A remarkable War. After Only three to nibs of War says the new York Tribune Spain has sued for peace. If the War ends it trill rank As one of the most remarkable War in human history. A War with out loss of a single Battle or skirmish on one Side without loss or serious in Ury of a single ship with surrendered prise ners exceeding in number the Force which captured them and with practical annihilation of the available Navy of one Power is novel enough to make an i Teie dug chapter in Ine world s history. The. Res has Are More remarkable when it is considered that practical la the finest arms and am uni of Europe in some inspects Superior to those which americ is employed for most of their forces were at the service of Spain. And Armstrong guns Mauser Nuhs smoke less powder gave spaniards serious advantage repeatedly and Spanish Soldier have never been consider cd inferior fighters in any locality we Ere their Peculiar style of fighting was possible. Yet Good troops with first rate equipments with ships o the latest and brat european pastern and men who were not lacking in courage were never Able to make anything like Good stand on land or sea. Holding positions declared impregnable the military experts of their own and other nations these Well equipped forces were Arisen out of them the re h of troops in destitute of discipline in wit and Many of then provided with inferior Aims. All thew go to this War of Bemoit remarkable Ever known i Washington letter. Washington. Aug. 5, in is. Now that peace is at hand upon our own team. Mckinlay is ing congratulated for his successful conduct to a speedy conclusion of the tie receives these congratulations vary modestly As he thinks that no Small portion of them lire due to the people who have stood so solidly bind him from the Day that he asked for the first War appropriation. He 13 particularly gratified at the unanimity with which the press of the country have supported his such support has been Given to any other administration in the conduct of a War in the history of the country and he Las of cry to feel proud of it. Although the occupation of Porto Rico is going on at the me or a town or two a Day and without opposition More troops Are being sent to Genera Miles it is expected that a cessation of hostilities will take place before an attack is made upon san Juan but As Porto Rice is to become american territory it is thought that the presence of a considerable american army will have a Good affect upon the inhabitants who Are so favourably disposed to the Exchange of the Spanish Flag for old Ulory that no at my will needed Lor a permanent Garrison of the Island. More troops Are also to sent to gun. Merritt and it is feared that they will needed to properly Deal with the philippine insurgents. Oarn Lajzer has teen abandoned owing to the prevalence of typhoid lever there and a new Camp established at Manassas a the scene of two great during the civil War. The new Camp is about 25 Miles from Washington. It has direct Rai Road connection but not he sly to to visited so Many Camp Alger which was Only Sevea i pics Furui Lown. The majority of these men will not see any Active ser vice unless something occurs to pre vent the carrying out of the arrange ment for permanent peace now under Way. Some of them May get gent to Porto Rico Cuba or the Philippines where we shall have to keep troops for a Long time after the War is Over but their Chance for any fighting will very slim. The men Are not much pleased with the Prospect and if Given their Choice the most of them would prefer being out of service to going to any of the above islands to do Garrison duty. The news that representative Bab cock of wis., hid downed the opposition to his was received with much pm asure republicans in Washington especially at the head j quarters of the Republican Juu Gres signal Campaign committee of which or. Babcock is efficiency As a Campaign manager is such that his failure to returned to Congress would regarded As a party misfortune. A very interesting statement of the receipts and expenditures of the Ovenu intent for the fiscal year ending june was issued this week assistant Secretary Powell of the Treasury. Owing to War expenditures in tha last Quarter there was a deficit of 247 Lor the year. That was of course to expected. But the most inter Esting portion of the statement to those who contended that the Dingle Tariff us would produce All the Revenue needed to run the government a that showing that for the lust five february to june the fiscal year the Dingley Tariff Law produced Revenue exceeding our Ordinary expenditures on a peace More thai representative Hull of Iowa who 19 in Washington in connection with i t. 1 i can congressional Campaign committee Lii ski that unseen conditions athe close of the War Are certain to make an extra session of Congress necessary unless me work of the commission that will charged with the duty of pre paring the formal treaty of peace tween the u. S and spam shall dragged Well into autumn. The Senate will have to called together to ratify the treaty As soon As that document has received the signatures of the representatives of the two governments but that can done without calling the House together if president Mckinley so desires he will simply Call an pie Cutie session of the Asia held at the beginning of every administration. Secretary Long has notified the owners of Alt vessels chartered for line a auxiliary cruisers with the bicep lion of the Harvard and which will to kept to used As transports the War department that the govern ment has no further use for the vessels and will turn them Over As rapidly As possible. The of peace a Tia Jority of our people the uncertainty of Way always affects Busi Ness to its detriment no matter if we Are Licking the cruel spaniards. There Are always opportunities for complications to arise while War is in not Likely in times of peace and while peace with Spain unless Sulci complications should arise is most certain at an Early Day investors and promoters of business prefer to wait until that Day comes. For this reason business is somewhat slow. If peace should come within the next Thiry or even sixty Days a great revival of business to this country would follow. Not that business is not now fair in fact it is very Good but the holding off of investors of which i speak is left in the Trade centers throughout tha country everywhere Govor our Shaw Luu Iowa on wednesday evening to visit the fifty second regiment at Park Georgia. The fifty second will probably Sio to Porto Llin under general Wade Ani the governor and his party aspect to reach Camp Thomas before the troops move. The regiment is Jully equipped and col. Humphrey and the boys Are very anxious to join the invading army. After leaving Jarup Thomas the governor and party will go to Jacksonville to visit the forty ninth and fiftieth regiments.
