SPAIN'S CONFESSION OF DEFEAT
Gen. Blanco's endeavors to bribe
the Cuban commander-in-chief to
leave the island, and his efforts to
get the . insurgents to accept his
scheme of home rule, mean that
Spain has hoisted the flag of distress.
Whether the report be true or untrue
that Blanco told the head of a relig
ious order that "only Divine Provi
dence is able to save Cuba," it is
evident that the new captain general
thinks that he himself is hardly equal
to the task. k No such efforts as he is
making to conciliate the Cuban pa
triots were made by either of his two
predecessors. Campos tried to crush
them before the rebellion extended
to dangerous dimensions, and Weyler
supplemented the fighting plan of
campaign with the starvation of non
combatants and the assassination of
patriot leaders. Each scheme failed,
and another Spanish soldier is at the
head of affairs, and another device
for bringing the Cubans into subjec
tion is being tried.
Piobably Blanco will have the
same ill fortune as his predecessors,
Thus far he has certainly been un
successful. Gomez refuse? to accept
a Spanish pension and leave the isl
and. The insurgents in general re
ject home rule. One reason why the
autonomy proposals are likely to have
no effect is that the insurgents do not
think Spain's promises would be per
formed. Blanco is probably honest
in his efforts to secure Cuban sub
mission. He would endeavor to
carry out his pledges, but he would
very likely be overruled by the home
government. There is the consider
ation which will defeat all Blanco's
efforts at compromise. The Cubans
have a profound distrust for Spain.
They know that , Spain violated its
promises at the end of the rebeHion
of 1868-78, and they feel that it
would do this again it permitted.
Thus no sort of an adjustment which
recognizes any sort of, control by
Spain over the island stands any
chance of acceptance. Absolute and
eternal separation from Spain is what
the insurgents are fighting for, and
they will probably agree to nothing
Viewed in any aspect, the outlook
for Spain is dark. The rebellion has
been under way two years and three
quarters. Spain has sent more than
200,000 troops to Cuba, and has tried
three commanders, and yet the in
surgents appear jto control a larger
part of the island than they ever did
before. They seem to be more con
fident of success than they ever were
id. the past. Men and supplies reach
them from this country, and will
continue to reach them until the war
ends. The United States ' performs
its duties as a neutral with vigor and
intelligence, but cannot guard its
entire coast line at all times. If it
had a navy as large as England's
some filibusters would elude its vig
ilance. Spain is practically bank
rupt. Its recent efforts to float loans
are said to have been failures. A
year hence she will be weaker rather
than stronger. This consideration
nerves the Cubans to continued re
Bistance. As the outside world views
the situation, Spain's chances for re
gaining its" authority in Cuba are
hopeless. The conduct of Gen.
Blanco is an evidence that this truth
is beginning to dawn on the. minds of
the men at the head af Spain's gov
ernment. The receipts from the penny-m-
the-slot gas machines in London are 1
reaching an immense figure. Every
three weeks 5,000,000 pennies, weigh
ing ten tons, aie collected from more
than 60,600 meters. The price of
gas is 72 cents a thousand feet, and
a penny purchases 27 feet cf gas, or
a supply or five and one-half hours.
It is quite credible that Great
Britain is anxious that Canada and
the United States shall settle their
controversies through their own ne
gotiations. . The mother sountry has
enough matters of her own to look
after without attending to all the
business of all her children.
The strength which conies to us from
eating nourishing food is - better than
stimulation, because it is new strength.
The health which belongs to a Btrong
body, well nourished by ' proper iood
(properly digested?, is the onlv health
that is lasting.
The difference between Shaker Diges
tive Cordial and other medicines isjeim-
ply that it helps nature to make
strength. It does not profess to care
sickness, except as that sickness is a re
sult of weakness caused by food not
Shaker Digestive Cordial will relieve
the pangs of indigestion, and make thin,
sick, weak people as well as if their
stomachs had never been out of order.
It is a gentle aid to . the digestion of
nature's strength-maker, food.
