It is said that a rolling stone gathers

rolling stone that keeps the world on

tributes nothing to the bustle, the ac
tivity, the well-directed energy that
goes to make the prosperity of a coun
try. In vent ions, discoveries, commerce,
science, art and literature get no as
sistance from the stone that never rolls.

William J. Bryan has been authorized
by the governor of Nebraska to raise a
regiment of volunteers. Air. Bryan will
begin recruiting at once and says that
he thinks he will have no difficulty in
getting 1,600 healthy, able-bodied
young men to serve under him, not as
borne guards, but where Spanish bullets
are flying. Mr. Bryan was commis
sioned at his own request. He states
that while he has had no military train
ing he feels that it is his duty todo some
thing for his country. lie announces
that "1 desire to see service, and shall
lead the regiment if the rules will per
mit one without military service todo
so. 1 will claim the right, under the cir
cumstances, and of course expect some
consideration will be shown me."
The personal friends of the new as
pirant for military honors unite in re
pudiating the report that the deal is
merely for political effect. As a rule
it. is impossible to state positively what
the motives are which actuate a man to
pursue a given course. It. may be that
Mr. Bryan is governed by a patriotic
desire to do his country some service in
the field. lie may think that he will
he the best recruiting officer there is in
Nebraska. On the other hand, it is
more than likely that he is going into
the war mainly for the purpose of keep
ing himself before a public which might
forget all about him if he did not do so.
Bryan's lectures are a failure. Free
silver is not a drawing card at this time.
The people will not turn out to hear a
man who has nothing but that or the
ineome tax or "government by injunc
tion" to talk about. If Mr. Bryan
wishes to keep on advertising himself,
as he certainly does, he sees that he can
do so only by identifying himself with
the war. That will enable him tore
tain his hold on the attention of the
public until war is over and he can re
turn to business at the old free silver
If Mr. Bryan raises a regiment and it
is mustered into the service and is sent
where there is fighting to be done he
may turn out, after a little experience,
to be an efficient officer and do some
good work. But he can do his country
more service—if he chooses —by re
maining in civil life and insisting on his
followers in congress standing patriot
ically by the government than he can
by putting on shoulder straps. Sen
ator Jones, of Arkansas, and other
Bryanites are endeavoring to debase
the currency and destroy the credit, of
the country. Bryan should demand
publicly that they behave themselves.
He has not done so.
When the rebellion broke out Stephen
A. Douglas, who had been President
Lincoln's political opponent for years—
who had won political victories over
him and had met with the greatest of
political defeats at his hands —forgot
all the differences which had divided
them and called on all the democrats
who had followed him to give the presi
dent their cordial and unfaltering sup
port in the field and in congress. He
set an example which Mr. Bryan would
have done well to imitate, but he has
not done so.
While he is raising men in Nebraska

And notonly these, but every other con

The general curiosity in regard to
the alleged democratic reasons for op
posing tlm revenue hill as framed by
the republican committeemen has hard
ly been satisfied by the speech of Sen
ator .(ones, of Arkansas, who repre
sented the democratic-silver combina
tion. Or, rather, the speech showed
that there was absolutely 110 strength
or merit in the opposition to the bill.
In the first place, Senator .Tones had
peculiar estimates of his own with ref
erence to the cost of the war. estimates
which the republican spokesmen had no
dilllculty in puncturing. He further
maintained that it was wholly unnec
essary that all the expenses of the war
should be provided for in the pending
bill. Congress, he said, would return
in December, and if any emergency re
quired Its presence sooner the presi
dent could attend to that by proclama
tion. Tie evidently found it convenient
to ignore the fact that the provision for
the issues of short-term certificates and
long-term bonds do not direct an imme
diate isMie of either, but merely author
ize the treasury to issue them as the
need arises. Does he imagine that they
would be issued anyhow, regardless of
the course of the struggle?
The senator says he and his party pre
fer increased taxation to bonds. The
only principle conceivably behind this
preference is that the present genera
tion should pay the expensesof thecon
fiict; but if that be the democratic mo
tive, the opposition is palpably insin
cere. At best the objection would ap
ply only to bonds and not at all to short
term certificates to be redeemed out of
the revenue yielded by current taxation.
Yet the democrats are as vehement in
fighting the certificate proposal a's in re
sisting bond issues! This alone proves
the hollownes*and hypocritical naturo
of their pretended statesmanship.
It is passing strange that in the re
ports of the senator's speech we find no
reference to the greenback and the
seigniorage amendments, the pet polit
ical proposals of the silver combina
tion. If this silence signifies that the
democrats themselves realize the folly
and impossibility of these sham amend
ments and do not intend to waste time
on them, they are to be congratulated
on their discretion. At any rate, it is
clear that the bill asi reported by Sen
ator Allison, minus the democratic
amendments which he disavowed, will
encounter no very serious or formidable
difficulties. Even Jones was painfully
aware of the weakness of his case. —Chi-

President MeKinley, by tlie masterly
manner in which he has handled the
Spanish war problems, has thoroughly
engrafted himself in the confidence of
all the people, and even those who were
most bitter in their denunciation of his
course of action six weeks ago are now
enthusiastic in his support, lie has not
only won every patriotic American over
to his methods, but his wise course of
action has commanded the respect of
the nations abroad, and he is receiving
praise from all over the world. The Lon
don Spectator, a paper which is not
given to indiscriminate and superflu
ous praise, speaks of President MeKin
ley as follows:
"At present It looks very much as if Pres
ident McKlnley were going to turn out one
of the public men who are remade and il
luminated by the force of the mighty issues
with whfch they have to deal. All the ac
counts from Washington seem to show that
the president is facing a very difficult prob
lem with Just the quiet dignity and strength
which one would desire to see displayed by
the head of the state.
"If the accounts we have quoted are well
founded it would seem that the president
has been able to face the situation in the
true spirit. If he can, America should be
grateful, for.in spite of her vast powei
and Spain's weakness, America may yet
find the need of the cool head and the
steady hand. There seems a tendency
among the people of the United States to
call for quick successes. If this temper
continues and increases it may require all
the president's firmness, tact and temper
to pursue his own course. The attempt to
gain quick successes is sure to lead to a
fiasco, but it may require a man of perfect
calm and self-possession not to be carried
away by the excitement and the demand for
Instant action. Our own belief is that Mr.
McKlnley will prove equal to the crisis."

Aii Oflle al Fo recant of the Plan of C am*

Send Our SOUIIITH to l'orto Kieo a* Well
rh to t'ulm and the I'liillpplnen.
Washington, .June 2.—For the first
time since the beginning of hostilities
there appears to be something in the
nature of an official statement of the
plan of campaign. This is contained
in a letter sent yesterday by Secretary
Alger to the speaker of the house,
transmitting certain statements of
Gen. Ludlow, which disclose the pur
pose of the war department to send
70,000 men to Cuba, 20,000 to start at
once and the remainder just as soon as
they can be made ready for departure.
Then there was an estimate for estab
lishing electrical communication in
connection with the army "in Cuba,
l'orto Rico and the Philippines," show
ing for the first time officially an im
plied intention on the part of the gov
ernment to land troops in l'orto Itico.
All these movements have been an
ticipated bv the press, but neverthe
less a strong element of doubt existed
and therefore an official statement of
the government's purposes, made even
in this indirect fashion, created a pro
found sensation here. The three are
togo together—Cuba, l'orto Rico and
the Philippines—and be occupied by
United States troops. Inasmuch the
secretary says the second contingent
of troops is togo forward as soon as
they can be prepared, a good deal of
interest attached to an order made
yesterday at the war department pro
viding for the organization of the 75,-
000 additional volunteers called for.
The order officially established the
statement heretofore made that a large
proportion of the new men arc to be
used to fill up existing regiments of
volunteers, which are in most cases de
ficient in numbers. It is presumed from
this that the volunteer regiments col
lected under the first call will be de
tained until they are filled up in this
fashion, so that the order has some
bearing upon the plan of campaign.
The war department has received a
dispatch from Gen. ISrooke, in com
mand of the forces in Chickamanga,
setting at rest the reports as to inade
quate food and water supply there.
' An additional evidence that tlie ac
tual forward movement of the army
and navy has begun is given in the ac
tion of the foreign naval and military
observers. They have been sojourning
leisurely in Washington for some time,
but within the last week all of them
have started for Florida. The British
naval and military attaches were the
first to leave, and now they have been
followed by the German, Austrian,
Russian, Swedish. Norwegian and Jap
anese observers. The government of
Norway and Sweden has no less than
six military and naval experts to ob
serve various brances of the warfare.
TAUGHT HIM A LESSON.
Admiral Dewey Is Said to Have Made
l'rlnee llenry of I'ruKHla Apologize for a
Slight to America.
Chicago, June 2.—Charles N. Post,
vice president of the Lyon .t Healy Co.,
who has just returned from a tour of
the Orient, met Admiral Dewey in
Hong Kong March 25. Air. Post tells
of a social passage at arms between
Dewey and Prince Henry, brother of
Emperor William, commanding the
German squadron at Hong 1 Kong.
Prince Henry after his arrival at Hong
Koqg gave a banquet to the higher offi
cers of the other fleets, among whom
was Rear Admiral Dewey. At the feast
the prince proposed a toast to his own
country, then to Oreat Britain, then to
all the other great powers except
the United States. Just before the
dinner was over, the royal host pro
posed a toast to this country. When
Rear Admiral Dewey saw that appar
ently his country was to be slighted he
left the banquet.
The next day a representative of
Prince Henry sent a roundabout apol
ogy to the American commander.
Dewey sent word back to the prince
that he would accept nothing but a
written or personal apology. Prince
Henry then called upon Dewfey and
apologized, saying that in the confu
sion of the dinner he, the prince, neg
lected to put the American toast on
the programme. While Mr. Post was
at Hong- Kong-, I'rince Henry gave a
ball, but Admiral Dewey, although in
vited, did not attend it.

May IS with <l2 people on board.
Among the passengers was a party of
16 Italians who were outfitted by
Prince Luigi, of Italy.
The surviving passengers suffered a
great deal of privation ami for HO hours
their only food was a sack of prunes
and a sack of turnips from the ship's
stores. Sufficient water was caught by
spreading a tarpaulin during a rain
storm. The news of the disaster and
expected arrival of the rescued from
Victoria caused a great crowd to gath
er at the dock in this city. Carriages
were waiting and when the City of
Kingston landed the survivors they
were all carried to their rooms or to
the residences of friends. The few that
were seen could not give a very de
tailed account of the disaster which
came so suddenly. They were unable
to account for the vessel springing a
leak and sinking.

New York, June 2. —A special from
Cape Haitien says: The torpedo boat
Porter arrived at Mole St. Nicholas
Wednesday morning with dispatches
for Washington. She left immediately,
but before going to sea the following
story of the bombardment of Santiago
de Cuba was obtained:
The American squadron, augmented
by the torpedo boat Porter, the auxil
iary cruiser St. Paul and the protected
cruiser New Orleans, approached the
entrance to the harbor of Santiago at
12:80 p. m., Tuesday, the lowa leading.
Inside the entrance to the harbor was
seen one of the warships of Cervera's
fleet, stripped for action.
As the American fleet drew near the
New Orleans steamed forward ahead
of the lowa. Texas and Massachusetts.
One of the forts opened fire on her and
bhe replied, the other two ships direct
ing their fire at the battery on I'unta
Gorda, within the harbor and west
ward of the position occupied by the
Spanish ship. The latter replied to the
lire and immediately became a target
for all the American ships engaged in
the battle. She retired behind a pro
tecting headland and was not seen
again during the engagement.
The lowa, directed by Capt. "Fight
ing 15ob'' Evans; the Massachusetts,
Capt. Higginson; Texas, ('apt. Philip,
and the New Orleans, Capt. Folger,
kept up a terrific fire against Morro,
Zacopa and Punta (iorda forts for two
hours, their projectiles, of enormous
size, doing tremendous damage to the
defenses of the harbor. The masonry
on Zacopa and Morro was battered al
most into dust, and the forms of Span
ish artillerymen could be plainly seen
flying to safety behind the neighbor
The auxiliary cruiser which joined
Schley's fleet just before the battle
took place was hit by shells from the
forts and it is thought she was serious
After seeking the protection of a jut
ting headland the Spanish warships
continued to fire projectiles over the
hills toward the fleet, but the shells
fell harmlessly into the sea.
That the number of killed and
wounded on the Spanish side is enor
mous no one doubts, for time and again
the American shells hit the batteries
squarely, and amid the flying masonry
and dismantled guns the forms of men
were descried. The damage done to
the American licet cannot be learned,
but it is not thought any person was
killed—if. indeed.an v one was wounded.
Cape Haitien. June 2.—A dispatch
from Santiago says: The American
squadron which bombarded Santiago
was composed of 14 vessels, among
which were recognized the lowa,
Brooklyn, Mssachusetts, Texas and
New Orleans, besides a gunboat and
auxiliary cruiser believed to be the
Columbia. The live vessels which
were recognized opened fire on the
batteries at Punta Gorda, El Morro
and Zacopa and also on the cruiser
Cristobal Colon, which had advanced
toward the entrance of the harbor and
was visible from the sea. The Ameri
cans fired huge projectiles and the
batteries as well as the Cristobal Co
lon kept up a responsive fire.
Wednesday morning the American
squadron reappeared off Santiago, but
contented itself with firing' two shots,
which are believed to have been sig
nals agreed upon with the insurgents,
who, numbering 2,000 or 3,000, are said
to have concentrated near Santiago.
Key West, June 3.—Advices from
Santiago show that after the American
ships ceased firing on Tuesday the
Spanish batteries roared long- afterthe
American vessels were entirely out of
range. All the Spanish shells fell from
two to three miles from the vessels at
which they were aimed. Worse gun
nery was never seen. During the en
tire fight not an American vessel was
struck and not a sailor injured, al
though 300 shots were fired by the
