If h It found diplomatically necei-sary to keep die Philippines, we mar learn much from Holland, aa to tuc-eesfully managing distant Island. The Dutchmen are neutral. They a-e eutalde the concert of Europe. They mind their own business; they are si-eellent coloniser; they never have any revolutions or Insurrection, an 1 their people are always at peace. The East India colonies of the Netherlands are very productive, and are a souce of a large revenue to the government, embracing ma area of 73,000 square mllo and a population of 34,000,000, which Is even times as large as the mothur country. The Dutob possessions In Asia have been peaceful since 1603. They are governed by officials called "residents," "governors," controllers, and councils, Che last being com pose I of Ave members whose functions are partly tagMallve and partly of an advisory character. The people seem to be satisfied with this form of ad minis tratfon and are contented and prosperous, while the colonies of Spain In the Immediate neighborhood have always been In a state of unrest. The only objection to selling to the Netherlands would be their unwllMngnees to pay a sum sufficient to pay us for the cost of Che war, and the Dutch are not so rich that they would care to burden themselves with a large debt for this purpose. The ordinary revenues of the government of Holland are about SS,-000,00 a year. OUR HEALTHY FINANCIAL CONDITION. Notwithstanding the severe strain ot war, the financial system of this government Is In such a state of ease and stability as to be almost lost sight of in the present International crisis. Never did any nation on earth go Into w: under more auspicious financial circumstances, and never was this country better prepared for war than now. In the first place our regular revenue are sufficient to meet the ordinary f-penees of the government and none of lbs special war taxes need be applied In that direction. And In the possible vent of the cost of the war exceeding the special taxes levied for that purpose, the credit of the government Is auch that It can borrow all the money needed at the low rate ot three per oent These are the conditions of supreme importance with which our government can proceed with assurance in the present grave emergency, and there need be no tatting or hesitating for want of money. Spain already knows this realises It to her sorrow and It It possible Coat this very condi tlon may cause the enemy to see the handwriting on the wall and soon sue. cumb to the Inevitable. When the minds of the people are Absorbed In the excitement of war. they art apt to overlook the cause of this financial condition. Though lest exciting than the victories of our army or navy, It It no lest important In Urn of war. This heakby condition dona not come cf chance. It 1 the work ol Tetoluta purpose on the part of tht American people, faithfully administered by the party in power, whose steady policy as regards tariff and finance) It known to the world, ind .o wbioh It attributable our present condition. There It now In the national treasury more than $181,000,000 net gold, and more la coming In nearly cr ery day from all over the owrtd. The "endless ohaln" spoken of by Mr. Cleveland aprons no longer to be In operation. Only three ye irs ago the uti gold In the treasury vas down to 163, 000,000, and gold being exported at the rate of 91,000(000 a day. The contrast of the present condition with what might have been, can only be Imagined. If the party of free trad and free silver had been placed in poorer 1896, our revenues now would nx be tufflclent t- meet the ordinary run nlng expenses of the government, and the policy of partis1 repudiation won't have destroyed confidence in the got eminent to such an extent that w could scarcely borrow money at all. In this kind of a crippled condition we would now be met face to face win war, without money and without ered It, whioa la about as feed aa being wtta out in Army. It la plain to be teen what It and what might neve betn and the American people should t!tva eredit where credit It due. AN INTELLIGENT ENOUSH VrEW Tht London draphlc, one of the mott Influential papers of England. In i Issue of April 23rd. gives a very Interesting review of the difficulties bet wees the United States and Spain. The article It no lett noteworthy for Its la telllgent grasp of the situation than to: It tone of sympathy with thla coua try In Its determination to abate an la tolerable nuisance. The Graphic ray "The determination of the Unlreu (testes to .tpel Spsln from Cuba has not been . trl ved at with any undue precipitation. !ndeed. If ever Interference of one state In the affairs of another was Justified. It is so in the case of tht Tutted States and Cuba. People oi thla aide of the Atlantic are so little ta touch with the historical side of theCn-can question, and are so deeply Interested In Its more Immediate as pec it, that they form but an Imperfect Image ot tht real and terrible provocttloa raffered by tht United States. They look upon Cuba at, perhaps, a some retrograde colony, but still the colony of a chrltlied power. They eee 8 pain full of a certain picturesque dignUy, H sounding with pluky defiance of a Bwrwmu, mm by ty this foe somewhat harsh. To a great extent their sympathies are quickened the pa.thet.lc picture of the excellent woman and her young son, who are ini chiefs of lbs Spanish state, and tipou whose Innocent heads the responsible- I for the sins of others Is being visit- I ed. Unfortunately all this does not get rid of the facts that the Cubau problem It one of tht most hideous disgraces of the century, and that no well ordored government suffering from contamination with It can permanently Ignore It- In the first place Cuba Is not merely a colony governed on comparatively reuogr.iJe prtclples. It Is s-ar--ly an cias-Hi-Ulon to say that k Is a piece of Armenia dropped into lh new world. Vhllo all around It liberty nourishes, while It has seen the Spanish coionlis on the main land win their Independence, and the British colonies on the sa ne uemlspbere granted tht fullest rights of self-governing communities, it has been condemned to an aduiinlstrstlon little short of medlsevi-al. Like the pashaa of Armenia, tht chief functionaries attain their posi tions by bribery and repay themselves by extortion. Except to drain It of Itt wealth. Uit mother country does little for It. Soarcri a tenth of the area of j the iiland It under cultivation, and many of the districts are actually lest explored than the wilds of Central Africa. Until a few years ago It wat governed by decree, and Its governors were Invested with authority which they rarely failed to use oppressively, and which generally they applied with revolting cruelty. Tht rebellions which have thus been forced on the madden-ed natives -whlt and blacks alike bava been repressed with a disregard for human life and amid horrors which many a aulUn might tnvy. .During tht first five yrs of tht last rebellion under Cespedes, the Spaniards admitted that they shot 43.600 prisoners, In addition to 11.600 Cubans killed In battle That wat the period of Valmactdo't bloody administration ecarcely more than twrntr yean ago when tht whole world cried ahame to tht Span lards. Cruelties of this kind naturally beget reprisals, and hence the mode of warfare ti.lay is on both sides little short of s.ivagery. Eighty thousand men perUhed fighting In the 186i-7i rebellion, and during the civil war ot the last tiret years ovor 100,000 lives have been sacrificed to this Cuban Mo loch. Wh it European state would tot enaie such a condition of things llkr this at Its own doors?

Striking a the root f all the trouble, the bat railed upo t the Spanish government to ytald up t'.ie colony It has to unworthi ly adniifl1 itered. No one ran blame her, and i lany will applaud her. Ml'l-tary g'orj Is not to be won by beating Spain, and It la not for that or even tot an extern on of her dominion that the United St ites will fight.

TWO BIT AND STRAWBERRY. A gentleman whose experience in tha mining districts of the Black HU1 should give his opinion weight. In con versation with the reporter yesterjay made the assertion that within another year the country embraced within tit Two Bit, Strawberry and Galena dis tricts would prove to be one of the richest sections In the mining world. De velopment work, he declared, Intelligently directed and conducted cannot help but sustain him In his contention. The Webber ground, Qilt Edge, Union Hill and many other claims, especially tftoae of tht Deadwood Development company, give every evidence that that section Is seamed and Intersected with rich ore bodies, and should the work neces.sry to make thlt fact patent to everyone be expended upon the various holdings, Two Bit, Strawberry and ad Jacent camps would soon become the richest and most productlvt In Amen THE GOLDEN CREST. It Is stated that Frits Webber, own er of the Golden Crest group of mlnot In the Two Bit district, hat made an other very rich strike on his phroporry The new strike consists of ore carry ing silver and gold, with a percentage of galena sufficient to make It a oplen did smelting proposition. A good large body has been struck, but It was ex pected to be encountered for the work of the past several months hat been il rected to that end. Mining men who are familiar with the ground say tha thlt It ont of tht bett strikes In tht Two Bit country. Frits Is well prepar ed to work his new find and from no on It may bt considered one of the most profitable mines In the Bla Hills. THE OILT EDGE. Development work on the Gilt Edge mine, owned by Lee Day, has been sucn a nature mat tht mint Is now showing up better than ever before. small team of high grade ore, leading from Che original working, wat struck few days ago and followed up, with the result that It bat developed Into a shoot of large proportions. Numerous small shoots have been met with In tbs shaft and but little attention paid to them, but this particular one was of such an encouraging nature that It was resolved to follow It up, and the resul has been more than satisfactory. well at demonstrating the fact that tht Gilt Edge It not a pocket mine, bu contains more than one ore body, and all of them of more than ordinary rich ness. They are taking out at present from Un to fifteen tons of ore daally ana it eii win run ta excess of 40 to the ton. It 'had been the Intention of putting In a hoist capable of handling the mine's product, but this will prou- a. be delayed until the return of hi owner, M. H. Day, who has volunteer ed as a prtatt in A troop, Black Hills voluntetr cavalry. HIS EXPERIENCE. He was one of the boys who left good thing to tervt Uncle Sam, for 114 a month, and It is no exaggeration ay that he wat making omre In a day and that's hit name than ths avr age man does in a month. Ht had been with A troop just two days, when he wrote to hit father, having promois- ed to writs to him whenever he hsJ time. The first letter ran something Ukl thill "Dear Father: We arrived In cataji at Fort Meads all right. The send-on we got when leaving Deadwood made all the boys feel glad that they voluu tee red, and we were all In high tplrl until wt reached Che camping ground. u wat men wt nrst realised we were under military discipline, but we all fell In with a vim and endeavored to dc our duty- but honest, , It was hard for me to bt ordered about I did as well aa the rest of the boys In fact, there could have been no comp!lat on the part of our officers, for though ws were a trifle awkward, still we showed a willingness to obey every order ant a desire to carry It out Intelligently But pa. the first meal we had I did nx eat a thing, and for breakfast next morning I only took a tup of joSm and dM not drink all of that We had exercise and drills, tad ft kept us pretty busy until dinner time and I sot down with the rest of them, and. would you believe It, I ate more than any two men ta my mesa, and ocnttau4 to do so. Ws art all getting used to the life of a soldier, and I am not sorry that i am ont ot Uncle Sam's hired men. It they will only give ut a chance to see i service. I sincerely feope that we will I be glva liberty before we are sent . south or to the Philippines, ta many oi tht boys desire to visit Daadwood and ' Lead, and the upper towns onee again . before wt are seat away. I I OUT lOTUg SOU. 9 1 iiiiiiii i mm ! I 1 I when all Mother Nature Is happy and glad?" In response to these Invlti- tlone a goodly number assembled promptly at 3 o'clock. Mrs. Walker's room, la which tht pupils assembled, was made bright with blooming house plants, wild flowers n profusion, gay flags and bunting; and tht boards wert nicely decorated by the pupils of both rooms, who bad drawn from nature aU the varieties of wild flowers now in bloom. A largt Cufban flag guarded by tha American Start and 8trlpet, oc cupied a prom Inent postJoa on the wall. The exercises consisted of select readings, recitations and tongs by tht pupils, all relating to Nature, In her various forms, and breathing the spirit of spring. All acquitted themselves with credit, and enjoyed a pleasant afternoon. The puplla are especially to be commended for their polite deport ment. BACK FROM ALASKA. Eddie Carr and Frank Doyle return ed from the froesa north yesUrday and received a hearty welcome from ther many Deadwood friends. Both are the picture of health despite the trying experiences through which they have passed within the past fsw months. Ths boys say they bad to work bard while away, and though the wages they received were high, atlll they could not purchase as much for Che money at they could for ordlnay laborer's wages in tht Black HUlt. They met many old-time Black Hlllsen In Che north and all of them seemed to be doing fairly well, but not gathering the for tunes which they expected. Eddie anl Frank wtnt at far aa the Canadian line on the Skaguway trail, and found that even 1f provisions, luxuries and other things were hlgti on the American aide, required twice the amount of capi tal to purchase them once the Imaginary Une between thed American an Canadian bonder was passed. Both ot the boys are pleated to be again In Deadwood, and aa they are two of the best boys 1n the town, will not fall to be successful la anything Which they undertake. UP TO DATS.
