Tho resolu tions of the foreign affairs committee of tho houso were adopted today uy a vote of 205 to 10. Attack on the Consulate. Barcelona, Spain, March 1. The fever of indignation and halo against tho Unite! States, which seems to have taken possession of the heart of all Spain over the action of tho United States senate in recognising the provisional government of Cuba as belligerents, and in calling upon President Cleveland to use his good offices with Spain toecfnrothe independ ence of Cuba, culminated in violent scenes here today, and an attack upon the United States consulate. It was 3 o'clock in the afternoon when the meeting had assombled, and there wero fully 15,000 people present, all in a state of high patriotic1 enthusiasm and ripe for any manifestation of the emotion which H)3sessed them. They were ad dressed by the orators provided firthe occasion, and the purpose of the meeting explaintd as one of protest againet the recognition of (he Cuban government as a belligerent power by the United States senate. The spirit of the crowd took fire, and they set ont for the United States consulate. The leaders who had originated the meeting seem to have realized the serious consequences which might follow upon a demonstration that took this direction, aud they made evjry effort to dissuade the mob from its pur pose; but their utmost efforts wero of no avail, and the crowd set off fur the Unitod States consnlate. The authorities of the city had by this time taken alarm, and a force of police was sent to the consulate. The excited crowd was not intimidated by this show of force front gathering before tho consu late and shouting: "Long live Spain," and "Down with tho Yankees." These verbal missiles did not long satisfy the aroused passions of tho mob, and in a short tirao stones began flying from the crowd, which 'broke a number of windows in tho United Slates consu late, Tho torco of police waited fcr co fuither manifestation, but charged the crowd under the orders of their officers and roughly dispersed Ibsin, wounding sevpral. bo f p-Hjned thero ucie no fatal results. "Being driven away from the United States consulate, the crowd marched off to the prefecture oi police and gathered at the newspaper offices. There they listened to more jerrid oratory, and worked themselves up to the highest pitch of enthusiasm'and patriotic spirit. The military club ir the city was also a center of excitement, and there, also, were glowing speeches indulged in in holier of the army, which weie eagerly listened to and greated with loud cheers. The majority of those who took part in today's disorders were alleged to hare bean students, and they were moit "per sistent in keeping up the disorder. "Death To Uncle Sam." 3I.tiuii, March 1. If one may judge by tho tilings that have been said, and Eome of tho things that have been done today, the Spanish people are determined togo'o war forthwith!-' with the United States, and to speedily avenge the in sult which it is fancied has been offered to the haughty pride .of Spain by the United States senate in determining to recognize the Cuban provisional govern ment as a belligerent power, and to ask tne president to use his good offices with Spain to obtain recognition of Cuban in dependence. Some of the organs of public opinion declare that tho bankrui tcy of the Span ish government would uot prevent the .Spanish from taking up. ihc quarrel on their own account, and fitting out expe ditions and maintaining' themselves at their own expense while combatting the insolence of the assertions, of the United States. The day has been characterized by many manifestations of public wrath and excitement. In Barcelona, the Spaniards have gone to the extreme of using violence upon the consulate of tho United States anQ stoning it, breaking several windows in tho building. No bodily harm was done to anybody, ex cept to certain members of the crowd, that was charged b'jTlhe police when the stones were thrown at the United States consulate. A Spanish Pamphlet. Key West, Fh; , March 2. A passen gcr on tho Olivette, which has just reached, hcio from Havana, brought with him a pamphlet which discloses very plainly . tho temper ot Spaniards toward tho United States. Tho pam phlet is styled '-The War With the United States and tlio Cuban Ineuriec tiou." It vis inspired by tho Spanish government, .and General oyler is hav ing it spread broadcast throughout the Island. Every line of the pamphlet bristles with denunciation of tho United States and of American citizens. It de clares that although the United States and Spain are on, tho vergo of war, yet Spaniards nctd nbfb.o alarmed, for they would lmvo 'ho aid, of every European nation. It continues: rlrould tho United SUiUs declare war against .my European nation, all tho rest of tho world would give tho assailed one efficient aid. It is essential that wo should bear in mind tho fact that thero exists in the United States many states which, in the shape of in trigue aro struggling for their indepen dence, and would hail the outbreak of a European war as the opportunity for their own emancipation. Ail of these reasons have contributed to the estab lishment of the indisputable fact that tho government at Washington would not recognize tho belligerency of the Cuban secessionists. Spain has always been invincible, and as certainly as the indignities of tho American government reach the point of acknowledging the belligerency of tho Cuban rebels will Spain declare war. The blood of the sons of Spain, when it boils over from the heat of an insult offered to the na tive land, is not to be controlled by con sideration of property or interest. Con fident of the valor of her sons, Spain has never feared the United States, and on the day when the government at Wash ington recognizes the belligerency of the rebels, we will declare war. "If Spain declares war against tho United Slates it will not be solely on ac count of haying recognized the belliger ency of the rebels, but also because we have a considerable number of griev ances ajramet her. The United States could not have borne herself toward Spain in a more despicable manner. The Mora indemnity, the Allianca im broglio, the display of rebel flags in the streets of New York, the refuge which the rebels enjoy in Key West and in Florida, the privilege of making all man ner of demonstrations of disaffection towurda Spain, tho departure from the United States of filibustering expedi tions, the American syndicates formed to furnish money to the rebels, constitute a scries of olTsnces against Spain, none of which has been avenged, solely because the Washington government has pro fessed that the insurgents did not enjoy official favor. ''Annexation is the aim of the Ameri cans, and if their conduct causes war, fetill we must laugh at the futility of the hopes of these thieving Yankees." Filibusters Active. Washington, Match 2. The state de partment has received information from Spanish sources that a filibustering expe dition is fitting out at Alligator Key, Fla. It-is said tho schooners SB. Mal lory and Adel are to meet the steamer Threo Friends at the key with men and arms, and tho latter is then to proceed to Cuba. The treasury officials haye been requested to notify commanders of revenue cutlers to be on the watch. Fusion. EutTou Pl.inde.leb : Will you allow me space for a few suggestions upon the 6ubje;t of fusion, about which the Re view is taking such a deep interest of., late. I call to mind the position taken by the Ileview, and by the democratic press generally twj years ago, when they could not find language strong enough by which to condemn populism. Insinua tions of imbecility and jackossery were hurled at the new party and its leaders from Pennoyer down to the humblest precinct candidate. What a wonderful change two years bavo wrought. They ate nov willing to eat humble pie, do penance, take back all that was said, sign a libel and go into partnership with their former enemies. They are now willing to forgive and forget and really fuse" with populists by soliciting them to vote the democratic ticket. Who are the fusion advocates? The editor of the Review, an appointee of the land offico who draws a salary of 13000 per year, and a few other party leaders, who pull strings behind closed doors and who never voted anything but the democratic ticket, regardless of the merit or demerit of the nominees; democratic bosses who have always voted by marks and brands. Now, if thes- would-be fusiouists really meau what they advo cate, it would be a very simple and easy task. They could simply go over and join the populist party, and vote with them. Why mako such a difficult task out of such a simple matter. If Bro. Fisher and the other advocates of fusion for reform, desite to join the populist party, thero is no law of the land to pre vent them doing bo, nor to prevent them voting with that party. That would be fusion, plain and simple,- and easily ac complished. Why not wait until pop ulists have made their nominations, then endorso and voto for them, the evolu tion would be completo and who could be heard to complain. They could thereby elect every man on that ticket. Why don't they do so? B. The U. S. OoV't Reports show Royal Baking Powdei superior to all others. From Ball Room To Hell." Fanaticism has gone mad. In de nouncing the ball room and tho partici pants in the dance, Rev. Mr, Small at Woodland, Cal., a few days ago, delivered himself thusly: "Every ono of you," he continued, ic fcrriDgtothe nicnibersof hiscongrega tion, "who attended the Native Sons' ball tho other night every one of you. I say is down on the devil's notebook, and as he noted your names ho gave an oxtra wag of his tail." PUBLIC ROADS. The subject of good roads is one of great interest to the traveling public, and is one of general discussion at certain times of the year, ie., when roadn are in a bad condition. They are very much like tho man in Arkansas whose house leaked badly. When it rained lie could not put on a better roof and when the weather was dry it did not need it. So when it rains the roads can't bo worked, and when the rains cease the roads soon become dry and solid and need but lit tle repair then. But the subject of road making is be ginning to attract the attention of all classes of people. They are beginning to perceiye the great necessity of good roads and the more thoughtful are now devis ing ways and means of making and keep ing them in good condition. It is now patent to every one of observation that good roads cannot bo made and kept in repair without money. The old fossilized system of building road by local labor along the line, is in adequate to secure thf m. And until we change the system for road making we shall continue to wallow through mud and mire every winter. Local road labor has proven to be a failure so far as secur ing good roads is concerned. It is a mere makeshift a sort of patchwork. It is found that roads must be graded and graveled or macadamized, and well done at that, or they aro worthies; a con siderable portion of the year. To effect this method of road making money must be used mnst be had. That money must be raised by a tax in cash, instead of Eomany days and parts of days' work. It will bo objected, jer- haps, that such a method would be an increase of burden upon the taxpayer. tint it need not be so. Let the coanty judge be authorized by law to have gen eral supervision of this bnsine-33. Let bids for contracts to work the roads be solicited, the lowest bidders toi.'o cer tain road work according to plans and specifications to be given the job;. this contractor to be bound with sureties to do the work 03 specified. Any citizen in his road district offering to work for the contractor for the wages such as i3 the custom to pay for such la bor, would generally bo employed to work on the roads to the amount of their taxes and often for more, for a large number of taxpayers will always pay cash anyway. Snch-a.Eytam-woiitiL-se-cure the best of results as to the charac ter of the road, and that is what we need good roads. The Salem Hog. The Salem hog has wandered away to the town of Silverton. "'Occasional," in his effusions in the Capital Journal dated Silverton, Feb-, 19th, in. opposing Mr. Hermann's return to congress says: ''What the people want ia aii open river from Oregon City to Euge.ne. and a man who will get it lor them." "Goodness! gracious, Samantha!" are the citizens between those points on the Willamette, the only people of Oregon? Are there not a few citizens along the Columbia, and along tho coast? "Occasional," the writer above referred to, should take an 'occasional view of other parts of the state and not confine his microscopic in spection to so small a territory, between "Oregin City aud Eugene." 4 The Presidency. We are in receipt of resolutions of New York republicans favoring Governor L. P. Morton for the presidency and the reasons therefor given by New York rt publicans. We recognize Mr. Morton's fitness as to his abilities for that position, but the east has had a president for so many terms, by whom eastern" .interests have been fostered by executive appoint ments and patronage that wo think it is now time to take a western man for a while. Wo are not willing to go fa'ther east than Ohio. Reed and Morton are able men but they are too far east to suit the western people. A Change. Several aspirants for Mr. Hermann's place in congress, amongst other things ask for, simply, a change of servants. -A change for what reason, we aek? Would u change belter the matter? Why cbango from one servant to another un less it can bo demonstrated that a chango icoufd be for the better? Mr. Hermann has proved to bo tho best congressman the state, has ever had. Then why not retain his services? We belieye, and so do tho people of the district, .that they cannot better themselves by a change. It is not good policy to change from a certainty to an uncertaiuty. Tho Plaindealer believes in keeping "in tho middle of the road." If republicans believe in protection to American labor, American manufactures American institutions, let them stand firm for tho faith they have espoused, and appeal to the voters of all parties to its support and let them bo tko judges, aud manfully abide their decisiou, let it- be what it may. Tho great and all absorbing question is protection. The free coiuage of silver question 'is only a side issue or sort of side show. Its advocates aro political "vitriol-throwers" to blind the eyes of tho unwary. The uso of silver as money is 16 limes more inconvenient than gold, hence gold is preferred to silver 11! to one, just ujion tho same principle of the greater or less convenience of anything else.
