be i-miilnp: to its own to a
certain eter,t, an extent that Rives
promise for the I'utine. For instance
Philadelphia's two martial tialnln?
l-chools in Its public school system
sent mil last week nearly iwn hundred
pradlMtes. I-'or the earlier founded of
these two school , this was the fif

As the; Kwii'il nnale to all this It Is

Hitherto, ho said, "wo havo disciplined

lacked that combination of mind with

The Cuban Naval Stations.
TIIHRK AUK few public ques
tions now before this coun
try upon which a lai'Ri'r
auioiiiit of foolish w riling
has been expended by antagonists of
tho adniinisliatlnn than Iho acliou
taken by ro eminent for the fiituio
protection of Cuba against insurrec
tion at home and invasion from
Km ope.
Now that the Piatt amendment,
which embodies nothing' but what is
essential to the welfare of t'uba and
to pioventiiiR thai island, 1 01 ceil by
the I'lilted Stales Irani tin intnleiable
rtlln, from ever beiiiK made a base ot
foreign attack against tin: t'niled
btates, has been accepted, flesh at
tempts by the .self-styled "auti-im-pcrinllstr,"
to nullify its tnnvisloiis
may be oNpecled. Alieady hints of
what Is worse than folly hae begun
to prop nut in the utterances of some.
"Kluudeis that are than
crimes," as Talloyiand described the
porformani es nl wrnng-headed "states,
men" in ills own day, are llie fauirito
methods m these, their mental de
scendants, today.
It is the i-pvtnlh 1 lause of the Piatt
amendment providing that the I'nited
Slates .shall actually tie In position lo
defend Cuba and itself, not cunt led
Irlo corners of the coast where the
ns'ilhllity of such defence would lie
ill. that mu'to'iiigs ale heard agains-l.
It is a curious thing, and a humili
ating and sad thing, that tiieic aie
American citizens to be found who .11 e
willing to count as nought all the sac
rifices their country lias made to res
cue Cuba from utter ruin a saerllice
Including that of so many among the
liower of its young manhood.
The pinvision made by Unit seventh
clause of llie Plan amendment is the
perfectly ' icasonuble, iho absolutely
necessary one: "That to enable the
United States to maintain the Inde
pendence of Cuba and to protect the
people iheieof, as well as for its own
deieiue, the government of Cuba will
.sell or lease to the Mulled States lauds
necessary for coaling or naval stations
at certain specilied points, to be agieed
upon with t lie president ot the I'nited
The "certain specilied points" must

menacing the Pulled Stales, and fuuii
which I'niied States sailors, marines
or soldiers could be at mice marshalled
for pinteetlon of the Cuban govern
ment against domestic insurrections
such as so many Latin-American
countries are periodically Involved in,
The entrain es to Havana and Santi
ago must as the only means of abso
lute protection to Cuba's independence
be fortllled and defended by the
I'nited Stales as ell'eetlvely as are tho
entrances to New York hiirj-or and to
Chesapeake Hay tho sea-approach to
Washington. If ever a foreign ileet
with hostile Intent menaces Cuba and.
through Cuba, the I'nited Stales, the
objective points ot Its attack would be
Havana and Santiago, also possibly
Mataiii-as. That fact Indicates when
United Slates protection must bo ecu.

This "outdoor plan," as our readers
