ADMIRAL DEWErS OPJSIOS.
-I bTe the greatest enthusiasm
in the future of the Philippines,'
svs Admiral Deev, UI hop to
see America poesras the key to Orient
al commerce ami civilisation. We
will never part with the Philippines,
1 am sure, and in future years the
ilea that anybody should have seri
rnly suggested it will be one of the
curiosities of history.
This is the pinion of a patriotic
citizen, expressed at short range,
wys the Spokesman-ReTiew. It is
spoken on the authority of long and
close ttudr, and will carry weight
against the utterances of the arti ex
pansionists, who hare been speaking
at random, with imperfect knowledge
of conditions in the islands, and
fanciful notions concerning the char
acter of the Filipinos.
Admiral Dewey has read, of couise,
We history of his country, and re
calls that every movement made in
the iast century to carry the flag
west of the Mississippi river has been
resisted by we U-meaning but short-
sighted politicians. They opposed
Jefferson's acquisition of Lousiana.
They were against the annexation
of Texas. They ridiculed the move
ment to bring In the Pacific North
west. They did not want California;
and Seward's parchase of Alaska was
characterized as an act of supreme
folly. Thirty years ago the nation
would not have cared a copper if
Seward's deal for that territory had
gone by the board. Today we are
wrangling wun Canada over a nar
row strip representing an almost in
fioitesimal part of the area of Alaska.
Why this remarkable change in sen
timent? Because the great mind of
the nation realizes that every mile of
American territory is needed for the
fullest development of American re
sources. And thus will it be 20 or 30 years
hence with the Philippines. From
that base we sball.'develop an Orient
al commerce which will add immense
ly to the wealth of the nation, and
the day will come when the sons of
the snti-expansionisu of the present
day would volunteer to shoulder a
riflejfor the defense of one of the
smallest of these islands, if its owner
should be claimed by another power.
dara together, and that full
during active campaigns were seldom
practicable. No arany ever raised
in this country had been as fully and
liberally supplied as that which is
now in service, or has recently been
mustered out. This is no more than
its due. The country Is glad to
bestow the most generous care upon
its valiant defenders. And it is
pleased also to have the acknowledg
ment from as thorough and dis
tinguished a soldier as Law loo.
At Minneapolis on Friday the
Presbyterian general assembly be
came involved in a controversy over
the end of the nineteenth century
Some said it would end with the
vear 1899. and tbey were wrong. It
will end at midnight of December SI,
1900. In other words, the year 1900
will be the last year in the present
century. The 20lh century will be
gin with th year 1901. This ought
to be readily comprebetded. The
wheelman who rides 99 miles has not

Lawton served in the civil war and
is also known as the man who walked
the Apaches to death. Comparing
the volunteers of today with those of
the civil war, he says: "The fight

The American soldier is one with
courage, nerve and giit. He has

days we were short, but that was
