The week has witiiessed many changes
iu tlie state of affairs both at home and
abroad. The Spaniard, arc staring do-
font in tho face and must bow to tlio
inevitable, for there is apparently no
alternative. They have been practically
chased from sea to sea, so that a Stand
would lie taken by birth sid*s and
thus demonstrata their riglit to supremacy ; but Undo Sam hud eventually to
sail for the Phillippines, whero Manilla
was bombarded and laid in aeheo, and
tho U. S. government has decided to
retain possession of the islands, which it
is now, naturally enough, entitled to.
Of course it is utterly impossiblo to
procure details or even authentic news,
mring to tlie cable bavin*; been cut
off between Manilla and Hong Kong,
Nevertheless Manilla has fallen.
The U. S. naval authorities are prepared to resist an attack on tlio Atlantic
coast cities, whicli the Spaniards hav*
been threatening for some time.
A report is current that tho garrison
of Manzanillo is starving.
A dispatch from Key West says that
Commodore Sampson's Ileet is steaming
(nil speed to Porto Rico, either to destroy or occupy that coaling station as a
naval base beforo the Spanish squadron
arrives, then put to sea and try to engage
the Cape ^erde fleet.
A Madrid correspondent says the
government is aware that it cannot rely
on tho army. It is an open secret that
a society has been formed within it
ranks to put an end to the humiliations
Spain has suffered at tlio hands of
incompetent ministers. Judging from
what wc hear very terrible thing* may
happen shortly.
No news can be hnd from Admiral
Pewey officially on account ef the cut-
ling of the Manilla cable.
A dispatch from off Cuba says deep
draught and shallow water on one side
antl it disposition for flight on the other
prevented the torpedo boat Porter from
destroying three gunboats of thc enemy.
Scouting -along tho coast ou a roving
coiumiasim:, the Porter carried her
investigations to La Boca, a small port
near Sagua La Grande in Santa Clara
province and on the north coast of
Cnba. The hay is darted with small
islands, and as the Porter came in thero
her commander, Lieut. J. C. Fremont,
discoverned two small gunboats and an
armed steam launch patrolling in the
bay. Tlio porter made a dash at her
foes thc moment they were discovered.
The Spanish boat promptly lied and
Lieut. Fremont, great to his disgust,
found that tiie water was too shallow for
him to follow at the speed of the fugitives. The Porter can go about 30 miles
an hour, hut as soon as he had rung
" full steam ahead," he felt n hump,
bump, bump, as the vessels stem settled
in lhe water from the increase in the
impetus of her powerful engines, not
wishing to jeopardize his vessel for such
small game, the engines were slowed
and tho crews of tho rapid firing guns
were sent to quarters and shot after shot
sent after tho flying Spaniards. Tlio
distance was too great and it is not
known whether any of tho gunboats
w*re hit or not. Thoy were too busily
engaged in getting away to return the
Trouble of the most s.rioui nature to
British interests is said to have occurred
at Santiago de Cuba. Three llritisli
warships have arrived on tlie scene ami
consequently everything ha�� taken a
quloter turn. It appears tho llritisli
consul at Santiago de Cuba had been
attacked by n mob and in the struggle
he killed a Spaniard.
Wit In a Barn.
Th* hired man had evidently used the
wagon for a clothing rack and somehow
it caused the hayrake considerable merriment.
" I see the wagon isn't feeling very
woll this morning," laughed the hay-
rak*, addressing the harrow.
" Oh, I don't know," retorted tbe
wagon, " I'm feeling fine."
" But you'v* got luch a coat on your
tongue," said tlie hayrake.
Life is dull in a barn, so molt every
old thing laughed.

$2.00 Per Year
A'e aro not inking direct or positive
frum Kngland and hoi* celonics in
th|i present emergency, but it is highly
gratifying to know that in the worst
possible event���a combination of two or
noire of the European powers on the
sub of Spain���the United States might
coint on tlio friendship and probably
th. assistance of tlie greatest Ben power
on the globe. . An Anglo-American
alliance, should tiiere ever bo any necei
sity for it, would mark an epoch iu tlie
history ol tho world.-���Rochester Democrat.
All nations have in turn lieen our
friendii and enemies. ]u our civil war,
Russia, though a depotisui, was tlie only
country that Stood by us. When we
bought Alaska, it was a return for tlie
friendliness of the Russia* government
in our hour ol need. Vet if, as now
probable, a European war over the eastern question should arise, the sympathies
of tlie mass of American people would
be witli.Great Britain iu tlie great
struggle to decide whether tlio world
shall be governed by Anglo-Savon civilization, or shall relapse into the control
of thc despotism which, despite its
friendliness to us, Russia stands for as a
nation.���American Cultivator.
Th* Russian government is about to
begin to run express trains to tlie eastern
end of that part of the Siberian railroad
whicli hit. been completed, but they will
start only twice a month. Tbe trains
will be composed ��f a dining car and
sleeping cars, a library car ond ordinary
passenger cars, and the tlm* required for
tho trip will be six days. This is railroad travel of a new kind, because tiie
usual daily service, where express trains
do not run several times every day,
gives place to a system more like that
by which steamships sail than tho ordinary methods of railways. It is the
natural consequences of building tbe
longest railroad in tlie world through a
region most of whicli is very sparsely
Bottled and in whicli there is littlo
present opportunity for travel to points
beyond tho terminus ofthe line.
The hero of the hoar in England ia
General Sir Herbert Kitchener, whose
splendid services on th* Nil* have wen
the highest admiration. Ho ha* risen in
his profession by groat industry rather
than by brilliance, and tliis quslity was
never more conspicuously shown than in
the Soudan. Since attaining to tho
position of sirdar, General Kitchener
has continued to manifest the qualities
by which he rose. His reckless courage
in battle has hardly been noticed;
much less important ia it than his
executive intelligence and his endless
perseverance in the face of obstacles
apparently insuperable. His Soudan
campaign hits been a marvel of great
accomplishment with small resources
and nt small expense. His admirers
admit that lie has thc faults of strength.
" Untiring himself," says one of them,
"heexpects others to have tho same
power of endurance, rising early and
going lo bed lato, yet always about and
always ready for action."
An influential American paper, the
Cleveland Leader, cites tho attitude of
Canadians in regard to the war on Spain
as a proof tint it is a just war, and that
the European press misrepresents the
United Stales. European critics picture
the war as a wanton attack by a great
power upou a weak and small one. The
States are accused of deliberately undertaking to wrest from 17,000,000 people
one of thoir earliest and most cherished
possessions for the sake of further enriching 72,000,000 already well endowed.
The Leader points to lhe fact that
Canadians are enlisting in tlie s.rvii-o of
the United States to fight against Spain
as an indication that th* cause iea righteous one, und says : " Th* Canadians
are very loyal to England, ns all lh*
world knows. Their country is the oot
part of America that is now uuder any
European flag. It would be far more
valuable to the United States than any
er all of the other European possessions
in this hemisphere. The Canadians
know this perfectly, and if they hud the
least fear that tho war with Spain
already begun meant thut the United
Slates would interfere witli Canadian
relations with Great Britain the whole
Dominion would be on fire with anger
against everything American."

Ttie wfica'. yield of countries in the
southern hemisphere ban been much
lietter than it was last yen*, and the
indications are that the difference in lb*
same direction will be wry great in somo
ot the principal wheat-growing legions
of the northern half ot the world. The
eoantries In which a decreased yield
inns* be ejj.ectfd are fc,y and unimportant in comparison with those where un
increase seems well assured. In tlie
United SJiltco the condition ��ml acreage
nl winter wheat promise a larger yield
Iban that of IS'.I", but it is too early to
say anything definite about tho spring
wheal belt. The conditions are likely,
it must bo confessed, to render the
maintenance of pricos such as have been
nht'iiued since tlie early autumn of last
year very improbable Un tlio other
littiid, it is not likely that there will bo
a fall to the level known beforo 181)7,
*ik! if the harvest is very good a small
decline will not be much felt.
It may witli truth be affirmed thst,
with the single exception of Groat
llritain, there is no country better
prepared for a financial strain -than the
United States. Tliis remark must of
course bo taken iu connection with the
oxpen.es arising out of tlie Cuban war.
This opinion is fortified by tho example
of recent history. The war of the
rebellion, which endured for four years,
und during which a debt ol over three
thousand millions dollars was incurred,
was hardly felt by thp North. The nation
ros* superior to the damagas inflicted ou
'the Southern States by tho destruction
of its railways, the burning of its towns,
the raiding of its plantations, tint general
havoc caused by a civil war, and in less
than ten years the devastated slave
states were up again and smiling. In
fact, it is notoriously Iho caso that the
tiouth is more prosperous, many times,
than before lhe " Yankee invasion.'
Thc recuperation of tbe States as a
whole after the four years' war ending
in 18(15 is only to be paralleled by the
rise of prostrated France after her con*
jlict with Germany. In a few years she
(tad paid the. French smart-money ol
tion uf Cuba, the release of tha Cubans
from Spanish thraldom, President M��-
Kliiley skilfully evaded overy proposition
mad* to him to.rcl'��r to some arbitration
the astir* question. The Jingo spirit
had infected the entire community, ant!
lie could uo more .lay it than could tlie
celebrated t-frs. Partington eject tho
rising water which, uu uu unusually
high tide, was flowing into thu front
door. To do him complete justice, one
must aBBlime that McKiidey wan hurried
slon;! like a chip on tlie tide of public
Tho enormous resources ot th. forty-
fly* states*and territories of the United
States, the very enthusiasm of the people,
form a guarantee that tlie war debt will
be lightly regarded by the nation. Tlio

heaped up, mors bonds must be issued

interest. "Well," snd "what of it?"
says Brother Jonathan. It is iu just this
light and airy spirit that th. war wss
entered upon and In thc same spirit will
lhe expenses b. met, the debt heaped
up, a new pension list commenced,- the
whole for posterity to shoulder, But,
thero is evidently little sympathy for
posterity. It is but natural to assume
that the indirect cost of the war will le
as large, or larger, than direct cash outlay. The damage to trade and commerce,
the stoppage to general manufacturing,
the financial distrust, tlie loss iu tlie
shipping business alone ii tlie war is
continued can hardly Im estimated.
If indication, mean anything, tiiere is
apparently no reason why Spain should
worry herself prematurely ou account of
Cuba. She hss already fought her rebels
for three years, and now that tho States
have entered the arena she can afford to
tak* her time. Kvcn tlie capture of
Cuba might not end the struggle. The
attack on the Philippine islands is a sort
of side-show to tiie main object. The
American naval and military arms may
not bu driven at thc rapid rate anticipated by the politicians. It may be
remembered by some mcu, when the
civil war broke out, tiie time limit placed
upon the war was threo months, ond yet
it endured for fuiir years. Tlie Spanish
quarrel witli lhe American republic may
last till the snow flies if Spain receives
aid from out powers. In that event the
American war debt of $7,000,000,000
would probably be a low estimate.
We aro not of those who thick that
the war will necessarily lead to what is
termed a '��� financial crisis " for some
time, yet. It muy end in the downfall
of the Republican party and tho oncom
ing of ltryiinism and his silver policy at
thu next presidential election early in
next century. Apparently, unless its
duration is prolonged unduly, the conso-
quences arising will be moro political
than financial. Thut, iu any caso, it is a
bad .business for the United States tho

The Practical Prospector.
The practical prospector is rapidly
taking tlie place of tlie ignorant and tlie
inexperienced. He has paid for bis
knowledge, not by years in tlie management of paying properties, but by years
of loss mixed up with bis gains, to indelibly impress his experience upon the
mental faculties. It is a business to
which few are adapted, aud fewer still
are successful. Tbere is nothing in thu
business world that requires such a wide
range of knowledgu as that of milling
and prospecting. The practical prospector of today understands every detail
of the solfactaric, dynamic and chemical
factors most effective in the world's past
periods of universal formation. He has
learned that while heat, water and
vapors have produced deposits in veins
and otherwise, many of which have
proven valuable, that the greater part of
tlie great bonanzas of tho world are
id ways in connection with two of the six
principle divisions of ingneous or ortip-
tive rocks���trachyte and telsyte���tho
former gonoraily lying in groat fields and
truncated masses, the latter iu dikes and
in overflows and older formations. These
again have been divided into various
characteristics, owing to the period of
eruption or subsequent metaraorpliism
all of which have boon instrumental in
mineralizing tiie adjoining country rocks
in veins nnd deposits. The secrets of the
success of tlio modern prospector antl
mine manager lie in his knowledge of
tlie dates and effects of tho porphyry

from prehistoric mining was slow, but is

Our Inconsistent Uncle.
It is to b. hoped our Untie Samuel
will lis 11 little more broad-minded in
dealing with Canadians alter the war is
over. There is in existence a law against
employing Canadians on any United
States Teasel plying on the groat lakes as
well as on fishing vessels on the Atlantic
roust, and nny American shipowner or
capinin employing Canadians in disregard of tliis law is liable to a penalty ef
$1,000 for each case. But our generous
uncle makes a distinction botwesn a
warship and a fishing er trading vessel.
Ho does not put any penalty er Impediment in the way of Canadian sailors
being accepted for service on hoard any
of his fleet of war vessels. That is not
square dealing, U��cle Sain. If the
Canadian sailor is so acceptable in time
of war, is it fair to exclude him in times
of peace?
When the Inman lino of steamers was
sold by the Liverpool firm to the present
owners, all the officers and men who
had been sailing tlie ships for years
under ths British flag were dismissed
and their places filled by Americans.
The offices* of the City of Paris and City
