FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18, IS98.
Minister De Lome, the Spanish en
voy at Washington, in a private letter
to Canalejas, the Madrid editor, who
recently visited the United States and
Cuba, wrote very disrespectfully
President MeKinley. The letter was
stolen by a Cuban "patriot" in Havana
before reaching the person addressed
and has since teen made public De
Lome did notdeny itsauthenticlty, bu
telegraphed his resignation to Madrid
and his successor has been appointed
Our government, of course, took steps
to give De Lome his walking papers.
Americans exercise the right to crlt
izise and condemn the president of the
United Stales when they see fit, but
when a representative of a foreign gov
eminent undertakes to abuse our chief
executive it becomes an insult that is
resented by the whole people.
All preliminary arrangements for the
establishment of a Grand Army of the
Republic colony in Matagorda county
Texas, have been made, and the first
Installment of eight hundred families
from Minnesota and Dakota will arrive
at their new home in about two weeks,
The colony will occupy 22,000 ' acres of
rich land. Some of the colonists will
come from the New England States.
The Autelnpe Herald, after copying
the remarks of the Glacier of two
weeks, ago on county politics, adds
"Of course that section of. the county
is entitled to the Commissioner and
.will get it, and if Mr. dinger is nom
inated for sheriff he will be elected

half of the current fiscal year.

The number of dead in the Maine ex

has expressed regret.'
The news of the loss of the steamer

At Barrett School House.
Editor Glacier: The Lincoln night
at the Barrett school house, by the
Cascade Gushers, was an overflow as
far as to numbers and a general deluge
as 10 patriotic tnougnt. At roll call
the members responded to their names
by giving a quotation from the great
.cmaiicijmior, ana me readings and
recitations were all on the same theme,
until a good history of Lincoln could
be learned at the short exercise. J. H.
Shoemaker read an interesting paper
on the downfall of slavery. C. E. Cop
pie spoke entertainingly on the topic
w me evening, and m. r. lsenoerg so
captured the Gushers by his eloquence
as to win a merited vote of thanks.

The De Lome Letter.
Legation De Espana, Washing
ton. Eximo SeuorDon Jose Canalejas,
My Distinguished and Dear Friend:
you need not apologize for not having
written to me; I also ought to have
written to you, but nave not done soon
account of being weighed down with
work and nous sommes qulttes.
The situation here continues tin
changed. Everything depends on the
political and military success in Cuba.
Ihc prologue of this second method of
wariare will end t lie day that the col
onial cabinet shall be appointed, and it
relieves us in the eyes of this country
of a part of the responsibility of what
may happen there, and they must cast
the responsibility upon the Cubans,
whom t bey believe to be so immaculate!
Until then we will not be able to see
clearly, and I consider it to be a loss of
time and uii advance by the wrong road
the sending of emissaries to the rebel
Held, the negotiating with the auton
omists not yet deciured to be legally
constituted, and the discovery of the
intentions and purpose of this govern
ment. . The exiles will return one by
one, and, when they return, will come
walking into the sheepfold, and the
chiefs will uradually return. Neither
of these bad the courage to leave en
masse, and they will not have thecour
age thus to return. The message bus
undeceived the insurgents, who ex
nected something else, and has para1
lyzed the action of congress, but 1 con
aider it bad. Besides the natural and
inevitable coarseness with which he
repeats ali that the press and public
opinion of Spain has said or vveyier, 1
shows once more what MeKinley is
weak and catering to the public, and
besides, a low politician, who desires to
leave a door open to me and to stand
well with the jingoes of his party.
. Nevertheless, as a matter of fact, it
will only depend on ourselves whether
ne will prove bad and adverse to us. J
agree entirely witli you; without a mil
Itary success nothing will be accom
plished there, and without military
and political success there is here al
ways danger that the insurgents will
be encouraged, ir not by the govern
ment, at least by partof publicopinion,
I do not believe you pay enough at
tention to t tie role of Jinnlann. jNearlv
all toat newspaper canaille which
swarms in your hotel are English, and
at the same time that they are corre
spondents of the Journal, they are also
correspondents of the best newspapers
and reviews ot London. Thus it has
been since the beginning. To my mind
the only object of England is that the
Americans should occupy themselves
with us and leave her in peace, and if
tnere is a war, so much the better; that
would turtner remove wbat is threat
ening tier although that will never
It would be most Important that vou
should agitate the question of commer
cial relations, even though it would be
only for effect, and that you should
send here a man of importance in order
that I might use him to make a prop
aganda among the senators and others
in opposition to the junta and to win
There goes Amblard. I believe he
comes too deeply taken up with little
political matter, and there must be
something very great or we shall lose.
