The ne .vspapers of Spain prcfess
their inability to understand the at
titude maintained by the American
people regarding the Cuban revolu
tion. The Spaniards accustomed
for centuries to monarchical rule fail
to realize the passionate desire for
freedom, which the 'people of the
Western Hemisphere possess.' Captain-General
Weyler expresses aston
ishment that a nation like the United
States, which has long been on good
relations with Spain, should declare
its sympathy with the men who are
struggling against Spanish domina
tion in Cuba.
1 The 6ircumstances in this instance
are peculiar. The situation is not
that of two nations fighting for
supremacy, but of one people strug
gling for independence, for release
from foreign rule, which has ever
removed from barbarism. General
"Weyler can find the answer to his
queries in the history of the former
Cuban revolution, which occurred
some twenty years ago. The -whole
story of that peiiod is black with
Spanish atrocity, no incident of
which tells a more fiendish tale than
that known as the Virginius massacre.
This occurrence is recalled by the
publication in an illustrated weekly
of the 'pictures published in 1873,
depicting . this bloody slaughter.
The Virginius was an American
steamer which had been purchased by
friends of the Cuban revolutionists.
In 1873 she set sail for Cuba, but a
break in her machinery caused a
. temporary stop at Jamaica. After
leaving that port the Virginius was
pursued and captured by a Spanish
man-of-war and taken to the port
Santiago de Cuba. Notwithstanding
the fact that the Virginius was cap
tured in British waters while flying
an American flag the Spanish offi
cials disregarded all rights of foreign
intervention and by a drum, head
court martial condemned the . cap
tain and crew t,o death.
The number of the unfortunates
exceeding two hundred, it was nec
essary to divide them into detach
ments,rand within a few hours af
ter their condemnation thirtj;six
men were led to the slaughler-house
for execution. The men were lined
along a trench with their backs to
the soldiery, and, as described by an
eye witness, "the commanding off!
cers gives the fatal signal, the men
Are, and the wretched objects of
Spanish hate and vengeance fall
headlong into the shallow trench,
some dying and others wounded but
alive. Then comes the crowning
barbarity. A company of " artillery,
till now kept in reserve, gallops 'for
ward and crushes, with the broad
and heavy wheels of th'e'guns, dying,
dead and wounded into one. undis
tinguishable mass." The remainder
fortunately were saved by the time
ly arrival of a British war ship.
This was Spain's mode of warfare.
It is the same yet, and if the occa
sion arrive, like crueJty will be
shown. It is the recollection of the
Virginius massacre, and such atroci
ties that makes America sympathize
with Cuba and long to aid her in this
final struggle for independence. The
cause of Cuba is just and whether cr
not it is officially sanctioned by this
country, the hopes and sympathies of
freedom -loving Americans are with
the patriotic revolutionists.
The Oregonian has gone into the
letter publishing business again.
The printing of some' interesting
communications yesterday illustrates
the old apothegm that it is safe never
to write a letter nor burn one.
Postmaster General "Wilson, who
lectured ' Saturday in Middleton,
Connecticut, was given an ovation
by the students of "Wesleyan Uni
versity. If the causes were analyzed
it would be difficult to see the reason
for such a demonstration. The gen
tleman in question has proven a
monumental failure in everything he
has undertaken save, perhaps, in the
vocation of school teacher. As the
author of the infamous "Wilson bill,
he contrived a measure which has
brought untold misery upon the
American people; as postrraster-
general he has succeeded in making
that office remarkable for its deficits;
even as chairman of a national Dem
ocratic convention he showed his in
capacity to govern a body of men.
Altogether this pseudo statesman is
of a cheap-John variety, and the
sooner he is sent back to his "West
Virginia home relieved of the cares
of state, the better it will be for the
nation he has helped to mismanage.
