Tbe 157th Regiment and the two batteries are at Chickamauga and the 159th and 160th Regiments will reach there today. GOVERNOR BUSHNELL, of Ohio, is the father of the project to return the Confederate battle flags to their re- epect'.ve states. It would be an appropriate time to do this generous and chivalrous deed. _ THE Spanish fleet is made up of much faster vessels than the American fleet, and for this reason It may be able to avoid a Dattle. On the other hand the fast Spanish cruisers may be able to do much damage to the seaboard cities. THE Cass county volunteers will reach Chickamauga tonight. They will find there a beautiful sndhealth- lul camplnsr ground. Eat w« venture to 8»y, that, notwithstanding tbe agreeable surroundings, a feeling of loneliness will steal through the hearts of those that have, for the first time, been separated from home and kindred. THE world will be pleased to know that Mark Hacna has at last consented to have war with Spain go on. He has likely secured some valuable government contracts. He was suggested for a member of the "strategy board," but as it Is known that he buys his way through, It was feared that he would bankrupt the government'. <;-' _ FKANCE disavows any unfriendll- nett towards the United States. The French people have always been our friends. The Frenchmen who sympathize with Spai n are the money lenders who have Invested in Spanish tends. Premier Misllne*xpre8ses the kindliest feelings towards the United States and has been -free to ; fay that our war on Spain is justified on humanitarian .grounds. GKN. tiEW WALLACE will accompany Gen. Miles to tbe front as staff correspondent for Harper's Weekly. He may see some fighting. Gen. Wallace is getting old for such service, He was in the Mexican war fifty years ago and was a conspicuous soldier in the Civil war. He is rich and could spend the remainder of his years at ease. But he is ambitious and likes war better than peace. THE Pittsburjr Times observes that it is little more than 100 years ago tba»; the events began to shape themselves which came to a crisis just before the close of the century, and In- Tlted the French revolution. How singularly similar Is the history that Italy is making now. The story of 1790 Is the story of 3398. It Is a revolt against the unequal conditions that society throws about the tollers and tbe drones who sit in authority. THE battle cry of our army and naty should be: "Kemember tbe Maine." The watchword of every American should be: '-Support the government." The present war against Spain should be pressed with all the vigor this government can command. It should be waged as though we were fighting the most formidable nation on earth. The more vigorously th- war is waged the lew danger there will be of International complications. A. Direful Prediction. President E. Benjamin Andrews, of Brown University, believes that the greatest war the world has ever ceen Is Imminent In an address to the Brown cadet battalion he said that he thought the interference of the powers in the Spanish-American war would precipl tate tbe great conflict. He thinks that Germany will prob ably side with Spain, as, in his opinion, Russia, Italy and France surely will, while England can be counted on to aid the United States. Dr. Andrews says that England has, however, no deep love for America, bat she thinks the British can use this country to advantage. war were almost wholly paid with greenbacks or treasury notes. These promises to pay are jast as good as a government bond. They add no more to the government debt than a bond will add to it. They can bs issued as the demands of the war may require, and soldiers in the field or those who furnish supplies for our armies will accept them as readily as they would Tbe issue of bonds means great profits for tbe bond syndicates. Bond issues mean a contraction of the currency. Tbe issue of treasury notes in lieu of bonds means an expansion of the currency. ANNOUNCEMENTS.

Stages of National Growth. History shows that nations and raoea, like individuals, have their childhood, •south, prime and old age. The leading countries of the earth represent the various stages of national life and dura- ion. If there is one country that exemplifies the prime of life, that country may 38 said to be England. Science and art flourish. The land is prosperous. It has the greatest navy and tbe largest commerce of any country. Today the real jreatness of a country is measured by :he strength of its navy. Great Britain could conquer in a sea fight any two other nations of the globe. Her people are free, intelligent, wealthy and fnll of pluck. The quaint old inscription written of Nuremberg in her day of glory may be applied to Great Britain today: England's hand OO«H to every land. Our own country is entering on its prime. Its childhood is past. It is passing from its' athletic' and promising youth and taking what will be perhaps the greatest. place ever held by any country in the •world's history. It will be so if we follow ont tbe traditions of tbe founders of this republic, if we do not let wealth, luxury and corrupt old world ideas suck the lifeblood and manhood but of ns. Bussia is in her youth, emerging now from barbarism. All children are barbarians. Bussia will be the next nation after tbe United States to rise to grandeur. China, country and people, is decrepit, shriveled tip and feeble, going down into old age and death. Spain is a dying old nation; so is Turkey, perhaps also Italy. In all Asia only one nation is alive and throbbing with red blood. That is Jauan, The most singular race spectacle of the time is the Chinese on the one baud, a dying people, and the Japanese, and nest door to them, belonging to the same one of the great racial divisions, as full of pluck and all conquering energy as any people of the northern blood. Finally the trend of historic events shows that tbe ruling peoples of today, the nations present- and to oorne, belong to the northern regions of the earth. Those whose glory is past are of the south, chiefly. Again, only the nation owning a great geographical area can today fignre in history. The small country is nothing bnt a little country. (Concluded from first page.) Bonds »r Treasury Kates, last now it looks u though con- gnn is to divide upon tbe question of tbe methods to be employed to obtain money with which, to carry on the w»r with Spain. The Bepub- The remarkable speech of Senor Silvela in the cortes showed that at least one Spaniard has a grain of common sense left. His assertion ihat while honor demanded Spain should fight before surrendering Cuba there would be nothing dishonorable in stopping the fight when she f o«nd she bad nothing to gain by it. really pointed a way out for the queen regent and her advisers. The Latin nature is a curious one. The "honor" of south European nations requires a fight when Americans or English would not think of it. \Yhen private individuals of the south European blood fall out, nothing short of R duel will satisfy their honor. It does not matter much which gets the worst of it. So that there is a slight scratch and blood is drawn that is enough. They shake hartds and are friends. Applying this reasoning to Spain, she can now stop any time and -withdraw honorably to herself from tbe fight with the United Stares. Cuba is certainly lost to her anyhow, as SiJvala pointed out, since by the granting of autonomy she gavje uj> the right to tax it as she pleased/ - the aeaprtment c.f tne PaciSc, such designation is made formally and it is known that he will go to thePhilippines in comm'ana'of the army there and will be accompanied by Major 6enera!

More Going from Illinois. Springfield, Ills., May 17.—The First battalion. First reg-iment, which was ordered to move to Chickamauga, left Camp Tanner at 9 a. m. today, and the other two battalions will follow at close Intervals. The Second regiment boys •were all mustered in by ^ o'clock yesterday afternoon. Captain Harrison, of Peoria, arrived here at noon today to hold a conference with Governor .Tanner, and after that the governor will issue a call for 200 seamen to be selected from the Illinois naval militia, and to be- assigned to Sampson's fleet immediately. It is the intention of the war department to give an acting ap-. polntment to one line officer and two. medical officers of the Illinois naval militia. The Sixth regiment yesterdayreceivsd orders to move to /Washington and are ready to go as soon, as the transportation arrives. The Sixth will probably get away tomorrow. _ -Wisconsin to Keplnce Her Guard. . Madison.

Forty new companies can 'be' organized, the state law providing for that number. It is understood that they will be accepted upon the understanding that when the old guard is mustered out of the regular service it.shall havft the right of reinstatement as the Wisconsin National Guard. . , .. .,„„., The Second Wisconsin, infantry arrived at Ch'attanoogajast nig-ht.

May ,17.—Three long trains bearing the Thirty-first Michigan infantry passed through West Detroit early- yesterday en route, from the state camp at Island Lake to Chicka.rnauga. They proceeded southward via the Michigan Central, Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton and Cincinnati Southern roads. Several hundred from the city assembled at the suburban station to say good-bye to the.Detroit battalion, which occupied the second section, but they were not permitted to visit the soldiers, most of whom were asleep. Iowa O(H<rer» Get Their Cominlsson*. Des Moines, la.. May IT.—The commissions of the Second regiment officers were taken to Camp McKinley yesterday afternoon, and the mustering in began today. It will take two days to equip the men. and unless orders to hurry them to Tampa without delay are sent from Washington they will be ready to start Friday.

HMMMIIH War !H«y Settle It. Perhaps the war will decide the virtues of the chain and chainless. Prices in balk lots of bicycles are requested by the United States signal service corps. The manufacturers are jetting the bids, and the trade and military officials are busy making all kinds of predictions. They know exactly what they want the bicycle to do in war, and each maker asserts he has the wheel which will do it. The chain gear makers siug the wonders of their make, while the bevel gear men tell a different story. "What can you do with a chain wheel in tbe rainy season? Chains will be breaking all the time, " the builders put forth. And then the gear case makers step np to the bat and say: 'An uuhoueed. chain is as absurd as a watch wich tbe works exposed. The war should be a winning stroke for those who make a perfected gear case with robber joints." All these manufacturers who have been doing long distance talking with ;be signal service corps say that General Miles is-a believer in the military, utility of tbe bicycle, and just as soon as the time oomes for the occupation of 3uba the makers decree large orders will be placed for bicycles for the use of the army.' It is said the'first-nse to which they will be 'put will be for courier duty aud the stringing of telegraph wires.—Chicago .Record. GROOM YOUR WHEELS.

ASH & HADL^EY .427 [)M arket A Bicycle Needs Jut Much Attention an » ' Horse, New riders should be advised to take care of their bicycles and told explicitly how to do it. The bicycle is a machine that takes a greater risk .than any other now in use, considering its strength, delicacy aud what is expected of it. It weighs' froiu 20 to 28 pounds, and is expected to carry • from 100 to 250 pounds over rough roads ac a speed varying from 7 to 15 miles an hour. Too many riders are .under the impression that a wh«el needs no care >and that it is better, than a horse chiefly for this reason. While this is true, an exchange says, a manufacturer of hubs, pe-ials aud other parts realizes that too many riders attempt to look after the mechanical details that are beyond them, and advises them, as follows: "Don't take your hub, bracket or pedal apart as long as your wheel goes all right. Do not 'fuss ? with it, except to .keep it clean. Many riders have the inquisitive turn of wind aud desire to see bow things are inside, and tbe result is that nine times out of ten things are not put back as they were, and hence the wheel goes lame. The machine is put up all right, and if it runs all right let it run all right until something does go wrong. A wheel is like a horse, and if it is well groomed 'and taken oare of after every i-ide it.will do you splendid service. But don' t fool w.ith its insides.'' Danger Awheel.
