Speaking of war songs, isn't
there one that mentions the
Spanish Cavalier and his retreat?
Commodore Dewey is the hero
of the hour He went into the
harbor of Manila on the morn-
ing of the first of Mav and sent
the Spanish fleet to the bottom
of the deep, blue sea.
There were supposed to be all
sorts of difficulties in his way.
The newspapers said that the
mouth of the harbor was set thick
with torpedoes and submarine
mines. He found the Spanish
fleet under the protection of the
forts. The fleet was larger than
his. He was in a strange harbor,
and apparently confronted by a
gigantic task. On the other hand,
the Commodore knew his equip-
ment: he knew that his ships
and his guns were strictly up-to
date he knew the men under his
command: he believed in his
muse, in his men and in himself
But. at the rime time, he probab-
ly knew that there was a good
deal of buncombe and fustian in
the reported difficulties b'fore
him. He knew that most of the
ships opposed I i him W< re not
up-to-date, that most of their
guns were antique, and he .sus-
pected that a good many of the
men behind the guns didn’t know
how to Use them. The heroic act.
therefore of sailing directly into
Manila harbor was not horn of
desperation was not based on the
doubtful logic of chance, hut was
unquestionably the result of n ra-
tional conclusion drawn from a
strong balance of probabilities.
The probabilities were from hi;
point of vit w. that he Would win.
