Any erroneous reflection upon the char-

Arm or corporation or any mUatatement of
fact which may appear In the columnaof the
BiRiLD will be giadly corrected upon Its
being brought to the attention of the pub-
Ishera. Our Prospective Colonies.
In alluding to the results of the war
so far accomplished the New York
Herald speaks of the Philippines as a
white elephant but something that we
can neither refuse nor give away. It
may be true or it may not be that the
Philippines and other insular territory
of 'which we may become possessed will
prove to be white elephants. It all de-
pends upon the sort of statesmanship
with which we meet the new conditions
produced by the war. It must be ad-
mitted that the 'government will fall
unless our policies change
with the conditions. . We cannot
succeed without abandoning policies
distinctive to our domestic affairs
and it remains to be seen if our pol-
itical parties are broad enough to ad-
' just their theories aod antiquated plat-
forms to new conditions. It would be
difficult to contemplate the republican
party as advocating free trade and
would be Btill mora difficult to witness
the democracy as a gold standard
force. Yet revolutions such as these
must be expected Incident to the new
national policy. Of course it is not
meant that all republicans should be-
come free traders or all democrats
gold bugs but that there must be such
a realignment as will bring a free
trade-gold standard force Into
cohesion. If the political notions
of the American people
can be changed from the prevalent
chaos of ideas into some definite de-
claration of logioal Interjoined poli-
cies there is very little difficulty in
the way of managing colonies. That
is an alignment oi gold standard-free
trade forces in favor of colonisation
an imperial navy a world-wide mer-
chant marine an adequate army the
Nicaragua or some Isthmian canal as
again t an anti-colonial party favoring
protection silver and papir fiatism
and a strict policy confining our dom-
inant influence to the western hemi-
sphere. Neither of the . great
parties can successfully deal
with insular colonies without
abandoning some of its distinctive
doctrines and it is not going to take
long to demonstrate i this fact. And
when the time comes to del with the
problem realignments may be expect-
ed. It will be fouDd then that the
fundamental issue upon which the peo-
ple will divide will be to hold or not
to hold the islands in our possession.
It will be an issue .of international
and expensive liberalism against
extreme and congestive domestio
conservatism. We already know
that there is a large element of our
citiEenship opposed to territorial ex-
tension save what may be acquired on
the coatineat of North America. We
know too that another element is
strongly imbued with that inherent
Anglo-Saxon instinct which opposes
the renunciation of territory onoe ac-
quired by conquest except in the face
of overwhelming force. This issue
must determine the alignments and
decide as well the con-
junctive policies which pertain
to either side of the -issue. In view of
the numerous domes t'c prob'ema which
have began to irritate the nation and
obstruct its natural progress the colo-
nial prospects hold out some flattering
inducement to the country. Even be-
fore the war we were beginning to
realise that our industrial interests
oould develop but little fur-
ther until our factories had

the world's markets and it was be-.
coming apparent even to many proiiou-
tioniats that protection could not be
depended upon to open markets for us
any more than It could be depended
upon to produce revenue with which to
defry the constantly increasing expen-
ses of the government. Colonial en-
terprise is a forward step in the path-
way of industrial progress and it is an
Incident in the elevation and civiliza-
tion of the world.
If we follow this prudently the lofti-
ness and grandeur of American desti-
ny are incalculable. At first glance
many of us may be appalled at the pro-
spect of spending accumulating mil-
lions upon the navy and army upon an
isthmian canal and coast fortifications.
A vast public debt with a great in-
terest charge may horrify us but these
things must be considered in connec-
tion with compensating benefits. If
our industries grow under the
stimulus of broader markets
it our agricultural inter-
ests expand and prosper because of the
increased demand from millions from
whom we are now isolated if our in-
ternal problems are solved tin the
more propitious light of a world-wide
intelligence and experience if our na-
tional example exerte a beneficent and
revivifying Influence upon civilization
the compensations will abundantly
justify our new Americanism. So af-
ter all our "white elephants" may
eventually prove to be gems of un-
fading lustre in the full-orbed destiny
which shall crown the unselfish patriot-
ism and wise statesmanship of an en
THE VIRGIN1US AT SANTIAGO.
A Spanish Crime of Twenty-Five
Slnee the Spanish fleet has been bot-
tled up in the harbor of Santiago de
Cuba frequent allusions have been
made both by public men and the
pres to the historic"Virginius affair"
which in 1870 almost caused a war
between the United States and Spain.
There was a tremendous excitement
aroused in this country and it occa-
sioned a long and diplomatic corres-
pondence. The Virginius a ship registered in
the New York custom house Septem
ber 26 1870 as the property of an
American citizen was captured on the
high seas near Jamaica by the Span-
ish man-of-war Tornado on October
31 1873. The reason given was that
she was about to land men and arms
in Cuba which was then engaged in
the Ten Years' war against Spain. At
the time of its capture the Virginius
was flying the American flag. She
was taken to Santiago.
President Grant at once remonstrat-
ed with the Spanlsa government and
through the United States minister to
Spain General Daniel E. Sickles de-
manded the release of the Virginius
and her crew.
Spain was at that time a republic
under President Castelar and while
his government was asking for time to
obtain information and was making
promisee the authorities in Cuba de-
termined to take matters into their
own hands. On November 7 1873 the
captain of the Virginius Joseph Fry
and thirty-six of the crew were
The next day twelve of the most pro-
minent of the passengers were also
shot. The captain general of Cuba
General De Rod as directly sanctioned
When the news of this action be-
came known in this country the excite-
ment was intense. Meetings were
held and the bloody work was de-
nounced. President Grant authorized the put-
tlog of the navy on a war footing di-
plomatic relations were on the point
of severance and war was imminent.
Meanwhile President Castelar made
the excuse (bat his orders to stay pro-
ceedings were received too late to pre-
vent the crime. It was probably bs-
cause Spain was just startine on her
career as a republic that President
Grant used every effort to adjust the
difficulty through diplomatic mean
aod that war was averted.
Several times it seemed that hostili-
ties could not be prevented. Once
General Sickles sent for a ship to take
him from Spain. At last however on
November 20 a protocol was signed
between Secretary Fish and Admiral
Polo by which Spain agreed to sur-
render the survivors of the crew and
passengers of the Virginius together
with the ship and to salute the flxg
of the United States on December 25.
If however. It should be proved in the
interval that the Virginius had no
right to fly the United States flag the
salute should be dispensed with
though Spain should disclaim any in-
tention to insult the flag. Toree days
b'fore the time spread on Secretary
Fih announoed himself as satisfied
that the Virginius had no right to fly
the flag and the salute was di-pensed
with. On January 23 Admiral Polo
made the disclaimer agreed on.
The Virginius was delivered to the
United States navv at Bah la Honda on
Dcembr 18 with the American flag '

Officials of western lines are fearful
that a general demoralization of pass-
enger rates may result from the agree-
ment of the Southern Pacific and
Santa Fe roads to reduoa second-class
rates from California to equal those of
the Canadian Pacific Next Sunday
the rates will go into effect over the
Southern Pacific and Santa Fe as fol-
lows from San Francisco: To Chicago
$31.50 to St. Paul $21. to -Kansas City
and other Missouri river points $31 to
St. Louis $37. The other transcontinen-
tal lines on discovering that a secret
agreement on cut rates had been made
by the Southern Pacific and Santa Fe
decided to make the same rates via
their respective routes. They do not
feel that there was any necessity for
the action taken by the Santa Fe and
Southern Pacific and are in the mood
to adopt measures of a retaliatory na-
ture. One plan contemplated is to
abolish the excess fares on fast trains
between Chicago and Colorado which
were imposed by other lines
because the Santa Fe claim-
ed that it would ba debarred from
participating in that traffic because of
its larger mileage and consequently
slower trains unless some sort of con-
cession were granted it. Practically
it was given a differential rate of $4 on
first-class traffic between Chicago and
Colorado. It is admitted by officials
of Chicago-St. Paul lioesthat the
passenger rate situation is out as bad
as possible. Efforts to improve it have
been begun but they are likely to be
rendered fruitless by the later develop-
ments in the transcontinental ter-
ritory. Chicago Inter Ocean.

Purified His Blood
Then the Disease That Caused Suf-
fering Disappeared How Hood's
Sarsaparilla Cured Ulceration.
As you must cleanse the stream at
the fountain so you must purify the
blood if you would cure any disease
caused or promoted by impure blood
and the world's great blood purifier is
Hood's Sarsaparilla. Read this letter:
"I was taken sick with ulceration of
the bowels and the prescriptions given
me did not do any good. One day my
mother saw a testimonial which told of
some one being cured of a similar
trouble by Hood's Sarsaparilla and I began
taking it. In a short time I found I was
gaining and when I had taken three bot-
tles I was entirely cured and able to re-
sume my duties." Charles Bbowh.

The trials tribulations and hard
boiled eggs of bachelorhood have
prompted Bob Lyons 'and Ike Rader of
the G. H. yard offices to start the
Don't Worry" movement. They pro
pose to organize a "Don't Worry"
club the by laws and constitution of

the members guilty of disclosing them.
They propose to make a "round up" of
all railroad men over 25 years of age
and give them the first degree free of

tention of the order. As newspaper
men will not be admitted it is impos-

regarding the organization.

The Railway Age estimates that the
construction of railroads in the United
States during 1898 will exceed that of
1897 by a thousands miles. The amount
spent in construction this year it says
will not be less than $50000000 and it
may reach $60000000. At the present
time work is still in progress on about
ninety roads aggregating 2725 miles.

The amount of railroad wages paid
out in 1896 was $468824531 (over 60
percent of the total operating expen-
ses) $23316270 more than was paid
out in 1895. Of the total wages paid
less than 2 percent was paid to gen-
eral officers. This statement of facts
should set at rest the popular clamor
concerning large salaries paid railroad

is just coming on: "Twelve cars of
cattle were shipped by the S. F. P. & P.
