A dispatch from Washington dated
Tuesday said that it has been finally
decided that the Fifteenth Pennsyl
yania, Colonel Kreps commanding, will
be mustered out of the service. This
comes largely of a determination of the
War Department to reverse the recent
order mustering out the Second Regi
ment, it having been decided to retain
the Second in the service. Opportunity
was left for the dismissal of another
regiment, and at the urgent entreaty of
persons of influence from the Western
part of the State the Fifteenth was
made the lucky number.
DURING President McKinley's trip
through the West last week he made
several speeches. At Chariton,la..his re
marks were particularly significant. He
said: "We have been very fortunate
as a Nation in the last six months. We
have made much progress in a very
L - "We have almost lost sight of the
fact, in talking about war, that we
have made some very substantial gains
without resort of arms. We have the
people of Hawaii, who came to us free
and independent and asked to be annex
ed to the United States.
"And, my fellow-citizens, wherever
oar flag floats, wherever we raise that
standard of liberty, it is always for the
sake of humanity and the advancement
of civilization. Territory sometimes
comes to us when we go to war in holy
cause, and, whenever it does, the ban
ner of liberty will float over it. and
bring, I trust, blessings and benefits to
to all of the people."

A copy of General Brooke's dispatch
was sent to the President at Chicago
immediately upon its receipt.
ALL the Spanish troops were expect
ed to be out of Porto Rico by Tuesday of
this week, when the United States
would take final posession. In Cuba
the meeting of the Cuban assembly is
fixed for October 20 at Santa Cruz but
owing to lack of transportation facili
ties, the members of the assembly will
be unable to arrive at Santa Cruz on
time, and the end of the month prob
ably will have couie before the election
of a president and cabinet takes jtlHce.
At Harrisburg last Thursday Judge
Simonton decided that both certificates
