President Mckinley is too Well pleased with the news of the week to allow himself to be Resolution which has worried by the been introduced m the Senate by or. Pettigrew and in i he House by Imp. Berry of by to give Schley the thanks of Congress and All the credit for the capture of Admiral Cervera and the destruction of ins entire Fleet he knows that the motive behind his Resolution is not a desire to Honor Mcliley but one to Eru Barass the administration Ond create a jealousy and enmity Between two Able and Gallant naval officers Admiral Sampson and Commodore and their friends. Sort of firing in the rear of the administration is not creditable to those engaged in it the same crowd that is engaged in this work has been trying to arouse antagonism Between i he War and Navy departments and the army and Navy Ever since the War be Gan by every Little Fric Tion that has occurred Between the representatives of the two branches of the net vice. The real object of this sort of bushwhacking a politics and very dirty politics too. The War is being conducted entirely too successfully to please the enemies of rep Bliesa party. This particular Resolution will slumber in the naval committees of the Senate and House until president Mckinley made his recommendations which will be alter the official report of the in of Cervera s Fleet has been received then a Resolution giving proper credit to every naval officer concerned therein will be reported and adopted. Gen. Shafter has the entire matter in his own hands. Lie can Complete the capture of Santiago at or await the arrival of the heavy reinforce ments that will reach him next week before again forcing the fighting. Inas much As the Princi Fai object of the Campaign against Santiago the destruction of Cervera s Fleu has been accomplished and that the spaniards have been heavily reinforced War department officials Are of the opinion that Jen. Shafter will Wail for rein Forteni its rather than take the chances of the Large sacrifice of life that would probably fellow taking the town by then fighting. The sonata at adopted the Resolution for the annexation of Hawaii which president Mckinley signed at once. The sentiment of the country was too near unanimous for the oppo Ilion. As it is the prediction is freely made that More than one senator has signed his political death warrant by voting against the Resolution. Congress will adjourn at once if As now seems Likely. Admiral Camara is really to the Philip Pines with his Fleet he is merely carry ing it to certain destruction. He May be Able to get to the Philippines and avoid Dewey s Fleet for a time but a Fleet of our Best and fastest War ships is to be sent out for the express purpose of running his Fleet Down and destroying it and Between this Fleet and Dewey a Catuara will have n i possible Chance to escape the same late that met Cervera s destruction. The departure of All but two of the German worships which have been in Manila Bay for sometime is naturally regarded by president Mckinley As confirmatory of the several statements made by the German government to our own that the German ships were Only there to afford Protection to the Peraian residents of , in Case it became necessary. As soon As the american troops reached there and were landed the German gov Aromenta was satisfied that the interests of its citizens would be protected and All but two of its warships want elsewhere. Whan it is considered that the insurgent army which Only Dewey s positive or ers prevented taking Manila by storm is mostly made up of men who Ore Semi Savage the precaution of Germany is easily understood. President Mckinley has issued a proclamation asking the people to re turn thanks to god for our great victories and to Pray for peace. Illinois Central Railroad company. Notice to stockholders.
