It has been a great war for the
American nation prolific of new as
pirations, reviving in patriotic spirit,
broadening and ennobling.
It may be said, without detracting
in the slightest degree from the gal
lant spirit of our land forces who
faced the Spanish fire at Santiago, at
Manila, in Fuertn Rico, and at many
a point upon the bristling, hostile
Cuban coast, that the navy has done
the essential work of breaking the
""preposterouslj' proud spirit of the
Spanish people. Spain staggered
when Dewey destroyed its fleet in
Manila bay. It fell upon its knees
when the combined squadrons of
Schley and Sampson annihilated Cer
vera's fine ships. The war then was
practically ended, and the taking of
Santiago was merely an incident
glorious in proving the superb spirit
of our land forces, but having no
great bearing on the real work of the
conflict. With the destruction of
these squadrons, Spain was powerless
to prolong the war. She could not
prevent our landing great armies in
Cuba and Puerto Rico; she could
not uphold her shattered sovereignty
in the Philippines; n5t eveu could
she defend her own coast from the
Withering fire of our victorious squad
ions" The peace terms bring ample re
sults. We have accomplished more
than we had in view when war was
declared. The Spanish flag is driven
off this hemisphere. Cuba will be
free; Puerto Rico and other "West
Indian islands will be ceded to the
United States; we have the pick of
the Ladroncs, and a mixed commis
sion of five Americans and five Span
iards will settle the fate of the Phil
ippines. Certainly our flag will con
tinue to float over some part of these
islands, and it is among the proba
bilities that we shall retain Manila
and the entire island of Luzon.
The working out of these details
will be largely a matter of expedi-
ency. If Aguiraldo is going to be
a treacherous ally, and the vast na
tive population shall show an ugly
front, we shall do well to take a lib
eral slice of the Philippines and dis
card the others. Upon the opposing
hand, if-Aguinaldo can be trusted,
and a considerable majority of the
people of the islands want the pro
tection of our flag, the American
people will uphold our government
in the broadest possible extension of
its influence and authority. Spokes
Captain Sigsbee will walk the
quarter-deck of a battleship again,
having been appointed to the com
mand of the Texas. The Maine was
regarded as one of the luckiest vessels
in the navy up to the moment that
she suffered destruction in Havana
harbor, while the Texa9 was consid
ered the unluckiest. Yet the Texas
has conducted herself during the war
in a manner which has restored hSr
completely to the confidence of the
navy department. Captain Sigsbee
may be trusted to maintain her pros
ent record as a well-behaved battle
ship. In the days that followed the
destruction of the Maine, Captain
Sigsbee carried a cool head u pen his
shoulders, and gave every evidence
of the perfect training for which our
naval commanders are famous.
"Protesting against Alger's misera
ble record, the New York Times
gives utterance to thi3 severe indict
ment : "There is, of course, no com
puting how nianv millions of mnnpv
or Low many hundreds of lives have
been wasted by this incompetent
secretary of war. It is certain that
there is but one opinion about him
among those officers of the United
States army who are not among his
own favorites, and that is that he is
the worst secretary of war within
living memory. It is Alger, and not
Pitt, who is entitled to the historical
distinction of 'the most profuse and
incapable of war ministers.' "

my physician having failed to relieve
me, I was advieed to try Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy,
and ' have the pleasure of stating that
the half of one bottle cured me." For

Why do we retail more Cigars than
Why do smokers go ont of their way

Not because we have better cigars
or better brands, or any greater variety :
no, not that.
Why, because we have the finest ci
