THE boys who go to Cuba will not need overcoats. The tropical sun will provide enough heat. THE Spanish government Is ia a •very sad dllleina. It Is troubled with foes within and roes without. WHAT are we going to do with the Philippines, Porto Rico and Cuba after we take them from Spain? Two of the Indiana volunteer regiments will be sent to New Orleans. That means that the liidlana boys are expected to go to Cuba. THE rebellion In the Spanish provinces arises from the desire of human kind to De free—to have liberty. Spain has been a cruel and intolerant ruler. THK people should be appiised at an early day of the earning capacity of the electric light plant and the wafcer works. A great deal of money has been put Into these public enterprises, and the people should know what the receipts from these sources aggregate. A sliaple statement, covering receipts i.nd expenditures for a specified period, would be satisfactory, __ THE Fort Wayne Sentinel rejoices over the announcement sent out from Washington "that henceforth the war against Spain Is to be pushed with all vigor. That Is the thing .to do. Strlka the enemy and give him no rest. To strike and keep striking was the offensive policy of Napoleon. Grant made It his rule of war to hurl himself upon the enemy whenever and wherever he found him. It is good news that the United States intends to force the fighting. That will mean a speedy end of the war." THE Journal pleads for the .retention of all subordinates now In the employ of the city. It makes the remarkable statement that "no changes can be made for the betterment of the service." If it is right to proceed on this theory, why were not ail the Republican members of the council renominated? Does the Journal believe that the present street commissioner should be retained? Does It believe that the present city engineer should be retained? It is the opinion of a majority ,of the people, as expressed by the vote lor councllmen, that a general overhauling In ail departments of the city government is desired- The people expect a better supervision of the streets. They expect a more competent administration of the engineering department. They expect more publicity in the affairs of the electric light department and In the water worics department. They want to know whether or not these departments are actually operated at a profit. The majority in the council must assume the responsibility of managing the affairs of the city and men should be selected to fill the subordinate positions who are in full accord with the purposes of the majority and who will work faithfully and harmoniously to better the condition of every department of the city government. The majority in the council unquestionably desires to make a good record. They desire efficiency and economy in the administration of every department and will no doubt insist on having subordinate officials who will cheerfully carry out the Instructions of their superiors.

Bread riots have already occurred ia Italy and in Spain. Wbess, however, is not tbe great- eat American crop. Corn is king, it can be utilized for more purposes. It makes rich rood for the cattle, the hogs and the barnyard fowls. The rise ia the pric.e of farm products will again make farming profitable, and there will be an exodus from the over populated cities to the farms. For some years past farming has not been a profitable avocation. Taking into consideration the money invested in a farm acd the labor required to grow a crop, wheat cannot be profitably produced at 50 cents per bushel.- Neither can corn be profitably produced at 20 cents per bushel, noi oats at 15 cents per bushel. When the farmers get fair prices for their products, the whole country will prosper. It will bring an increased money supply to the west and plenty of money makes all channels of trade lively. If any country on earth prospers, it should be ours, because It produces more abundantly than any other the real necessities of life.

Davis, of Boohester, will be presented as a candidate for Joint Representative of Cass and Fulton counties, subject to the decision of the Democratic nominating convention. ^^ And After? It was not to maintain the Motm* doctrine that the war with Spain -was begun. It was from considerations of philanthropy and the American pocket. American citizens and American trade alike suffered by the war, while nobody with a human heart conld stand by and refuse to lift a finger to stop the starvation and crnelty in Cuba. Starvation as a military policy does not meet the approval of the majority of the American people, while there are some among cs who were honestly opposed to a war with Spain. They said, for instance, France would have exactly the same right to cross the channel and make war on England because she had misused Ireland. But these opponents were in the minority, and the war began. All indications point toward sweeping victories for the United States. By these she will change entirely her attitude to the nations. She will show she is by sea as she has already proved herself on land, in peace and in war—one of the earth's very greatest nations. We shall have an illustrious prestige among all peoples. After the war has closed, what then will be onr policy? Suppose we have ou our hands Spain's islands in the eastern and western hemispheres—Cuba, Pner- to Rico, the Philippines and possibly the Canaries? What shall we do with them? Shall we take possession of them and annex them, thns having in all parts of the oceans stations where our ships may coal and put in for repairs and obtain necessary supplies of all kinds? Snch stations in every part of the globe will bs necessary if we follow p onr advantages and decide to become ne of the world's sea powers. If we do ot thus maintain onr prestige as a reat naval power, shall we sell onr hips for old 'iron, leave the islands we ave taken for some European power to rab and retire into our shell of former solation till some other, war forces ns nt and compels us again at an extrav- ganc expense to hurry together a navy, man it with seamen and fit it out with npplies all in three weeks? This is the ige of sea wars, not land fights. If we nly take Cuba and the Philippines in rder to let some other great power eize them, what was the good of our aking them from Spain? These are questions we as a nation hall be called on to answer sooner or ater. They are questions that concern -nore intimately than any other the fu- nre of the United States of America. It is uest to err on the side of courtesy and strict interpretation of the rights of neutral vessels, as President McKiuley did in his proclamation permitting the enemy's merchant vessels until May 21. to get out of American ports, rather than to be too previous in such matters. Spanish ships, sailing from foreigu'lands to our country and starting previous to May 31, may also come into our ports and discharge thei cargoes unmolested, provided they do not contain goods contraband of war. These goods mean anything which will feed, clothe, give means of defense or in any way sustain the enemy while making •war on us. Under strict interpretation of the terms of the proclamation several of the first Spanish prizes taken by our navy will be surrendered, after the courts of inquiry decide the matter, if otably this is true of the first ship taken, the Buena Ventura. We venture to say, however, that no Spanish ruer chauc will ever get back bis SO crates of live chickens that were captured b> the American squadron while being conveyed to Havana on one of the prize ships. Some things are uncertain; this is not one of them. Bread Riots, The nations of the world that are greatest in agricultural resovirces must eventually be greatest la all things else. The United States excels all other nations ia the variety of its food production and In the abundance of its mpply. The nations of the old world are relying on the United States for their bread. France,Germany, Sogland, Italy and Spain are today largely dependent upon us for food supplies. It so happened last year that nearly every great wheat producing country in the world, except cur own, had a short wheat crop. Russia, which is next to ours as a wheat producing country, has no wheat for export, India bus little to spare, Egypt none and our new South American competitor, Argentine, has no more than enough to supply her own needs. Our abundance and foreign needs mil tend to enrich this nation while producing want and suffering abroad. The coaling question for Spanish and American rueu-of-war is met in a com promise way by Great Britain in her neutrality position. Under the regnla tions decided on by the British government a Spanish or United States warship may coal in British ports provided she takes on only enough to steam her to the nearest port belonging to her own country. Without special permission the same vessel will only be allowed to coal once in three months. Further more, men-of-war belonging to either of the belligerents will not be allowed to convey their prizes into British ports. Mr. Hudor Genone, as he calls himself, is a deep thinker. In a late paper giving instruction to common minds on metaphysics and psychology Mr. Hndor Genone says, "My aim is to achieve the decentric parallax of opinion on the va rious segments of th« moral circle.' Oh, gracious! An English nobleman, Captain Sir Francis Leighton. who has served in the British army in Africa, is one of the queen's^nojects who have come to this country to offer their services to ns to "ght against Spain. Many people think they are senfiitiT* •when they are only ill nacured. ...._ Stwell "Will Go for * Soldier. •Washington, May U.—Major General Seweil has been assigned to command the- concentration camp near Falls Church.

May 11.—The United States court of appeals yesterday decided in favor of the filibuster Three Friends because there was no evidence that she was fitted out within the United States.

Those naval officers who insisted on tacking to the appropriation bill in con- jress a clause that they should receive eparate compensation when the gov- srnmenc accepted and used inventions hey had made showed very poor, taste], f they were patriots pure and simple, hey would gladly lay at the feet of the nation jast now anything they could devise to help us to victory. If their in- •entions are really worth much, it will be time enough to talk of compensation when this war is over. The United States government educated them free and immediately put them into, good places, besides insuring a permanent iving to them and a pension to their widows after them. What more could be asked of a generous and appreciative government: These officers recall the story of that skinflint who attended a celebration of victory at the close of the Revolutionary war, shouting, "Beef, beef!" because the goveru- nent owed him a small sum for meat supplied to soldiers. Portsmouth, good old. Portsmouth, N. H., has been a dead town ever since the decline of the great fisheries that nsed to keep her wharfs lively looking. The historic frigate Constitution, lying in her harbor, seemed scarcely more a thing of the past than the quaint and interesting city itself. New life has come to the place from this war. Her navy yard buzzes with activity, her ancient guns are being refitted and cruisers make flying visits to her harbor on their way north and south along the New England coast. The fact that at this moment, with a fleet actively engaged in war on the east side of Asia, the United States has absolutely no spot where that fleet can obtain coal and supplies nearer than San Francisco, 5,000 miles away, and that it will take over two weeks for assistance from that point to reach Commodore Dewey at the Philippines, is respectfully commended to the attention of the American people. The public baths of Philadelphia go to sustain the charge of a certain disgruntled Englishman that men are cleaner than women because men bathe oftener, as proved by the use of public baths. Philadelphia has provided one- third fewer baths for women than for men in the establishments where for a verv small fee anybody niay wash and be clean. ^ Strong people do not talk much. They are silent, but when the hour comes they strike with all their force. They do not waste their powers on gab. There is no surer proof of the weakness and degeneracy of the Spaniards than their impotent scolding and abuse of the United States. Patriotic Rich Americans. One is glad to see that American millionaires are to some extent doing theii share toward helping the country that made and preserves their riches for them. It is true it would have been the perfectly graceful thing if others than Frederick Sehermerhorn had donated their swift and powerful pleasure yachts to their native land as a gift of patriot- isrr/ instead of allowing these vessels to be bought for cash at the highest price by the government. Still a lew of them have shown themselves patriots, enough perhaps to save the ranks of wealth from condemnation, so far as love of country is concerned. Mr. John Jacob Astor, the American head of the family, has equipped at his own expense a battery of artillery and presented them with his compliments to President McKinley, promising to maintain them during the war. We have not observed, on the other hand, that the plutocratic name of Vanderbilt has as yet appeared among those millionaire patriots aiding their country, but it is cot too late. Best of all, however, we .like the course of Theodore Roosevelt, late as sistant secretary of the navy, now to be lieutenant colonel of a cowboy regiment. Roosevelt is a man of action, and, like all such, he chafed under the restraint of sitting at a desk when he longed to be afield. At last he was per mitted to resign and fulfill the desire of his heart; to go into active- service. Theodore has a ranch of his own in the far west and lie knows his friends the cowboys. Good luck to them and him It is good blood, that of the Koosevelts. Case of the Philippines. A much more important role than i generally supposed will be played by the Philippine islands in the present war. Because Cuba is so near our shore: it has blotted out of our eyes the Spanish islands in revolt against the old country in the far East Indies. Tbe Philippines have a population of 7,000, 000, three times as much ass Cuba anc Puerto Rico both put together. Spain has put forward all her ener gies and her best guns and equipments to regain possession of Cuba. On the Philippines she has only antiquated fortifications and rusty old guns. Even the cannon on her cruisers there are mostly of ancient pattern, she having never taken into consideration the pos sibilicy of being attacked by any foreign warship at Manila. This will give the American squadron that sailed from Hongkong to attack the Philippines an advantage that only an unforeseen acci dent can counteract. Apparently it wil be an easy task for our Asiatic fleet ti capture the Philippines with the heav? fire in the rear movement which wil be brought against Spain by the inhabit ants of the islands. Never for one mo ment have these insurgents given u their plan of independence. They onlj delayed it a little. It will be their great est joy and triumph to return and, aid ed by the American marines, drive Spai from their land and sefc np their ow independent government. It \F«S very odd that the first heavy, fighting of the war between Spain and 1 the United States on account of Cuba should haTe'tafcen place in Asia.
