THE WEST IN THE WAR.
. It is a thrilling and solemn fact,
that the four regiments which suf
fered the heaviest death losses in the
campaigns of Santiago and Manila
went to the front from Washington
ancf Idaho. Tbey were the Sixteenth
infantry from Fort Sherman, Idaho
and Fort Spokane, Washington ; the
First Idaho volunteers; the First
Washington volunteers; and the
Fourteenth infantry, from Fort Van
The Sixteenth's superb record at
Santiago has become a deathless story
in American history As a writer in
Harper's Weekly says, "the men of
the Sixteenth regular infantry and
the colors of that regiment were first
on the heights of San Juan, and this
regiment lost more heavily in killed
and wounded than any other."
' In the fierce battle of Manila, the
heaviest losses fell on the gallant
Fourteenth from "Vancouver. This
regiment lost twelve killed. Next
in death losses comes the splendid
First regiment of Washington volun
teers, with ten men killed. The Idaho
volunteers come third, with five men
killed, and only two-thirds of the
regiment in action. Spokane's two
companies of the Washington volun
teers lost three men killed and twenty
The records indisputably, show
that in this war the west has done
the fighting for the nation. The fight
ing at Santiago wjis borne almost'en
tirely by western men. The regulars
under Shafter, both cavalry and in
fantry, came chiefly from western
army posts, and had been recruited
from western manhood.' The only
volunteer organization which dis
tinguished itself in the Santiago cam
paign was the rough riders, and they
. were chiefly men of the west.
In the naval engagements of this
war the preponderance of western
fighters was rot so- great as .in the
army, but there, too, the west made a
glorious record. Dewey's crews were
gathered largely along the Pacific
coast, and so was the crew of the
There is something in the free life
of the western plains and mountains
which develops the best traits of the
soldier. As a rule, the western man
likes camp life and ad venture, and is
at home wherever chance or fate may
cast him. As a rule he has knowledge
of the use of fire-arms; and exper
ience in this war has shown that be
has also the essential quality of discip
line. Much has been said about this war
obliterating the last lingering traces
of the old feud between the North and
South. It has done that, and it has
also taught the east that no mistake
was made when the young states of
the west were placed oh the flag. It
has forever silenced the unfounded,
unjust and insulting assertion, so
often heard in recent years from east
ern sources, that in some way or other
western citizenship was not up to the
national standard. Spokesman ;. Re
view. Cuba played a clever game and
got what she wanted independence
and something lo eat. fhe Filipinos
evidently lack the good sense to take
advantage of a golden opportunity
when it is delivered in their - door
yards free of charge. '
It is easier to get measures through
congress for a colonial navv than for
a colonial army. For sorre reason or
other the people -seem to have a
special liking for the navy.
Americans are to be made to feel
at home at the Paris Exposition by
the pretenceof a working model of a
Philadelphia police station.
Deafness Cannot be Cared
by ' local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear
There is only one way to cure deafneap
and'that is by constitutional remedies
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucons lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube is in
flamed you have a - rumbling sound "or
imperfect hearing, and when it is en
tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever: nine cases out of ten are caused
by satarrb, which ie nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous sur
faces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars; free.
