THOSE Wisconsin boys who passed through Logansport yesterday were a foe looking lot ot men. report that Sampson Is at Key West cannot be reliable. It is more probable that his fleet is not far away from Santiago—likely between Santiago and Clenfuegos. IT seems that Admiral Cervera was not ready to be bottled up. He has, according to the latest reports, already quit the harbor of Santiago and is sailing over the boundless deep. Whither no one knows. IT is encouraging to know that the confirmation of the report that the Spanish fleet had reached Santiago, Cuba, did not create a panic on the New York stock exchange. The stock gamblers are keeping up their nerve. ___________ THB Spanish authorities are greatly elated over the sale arrival of Admiral Cervera's fleet in the harbor o! Santiago. But what good will that fleet do Spain if it can't get out of Santiago. Sampson's fleet must be in that vicinity. THE statement that Gomez is marching on Cuba with an army of 36,000 men may be doubted. If the report be true, it is high time that our army of invasion was in motion. Gomez cannot strike eflectually without the aid of the American army. IT may be that our navy Is being used to keep the Spaniards busy along the coast line of Cuba, while the Cuban insurgents are getting ready to strike from the rear. It •would be great help to the Cubans if some ol Uncle Sam's regulars were with them. - THE harbor of Santiago is a long, narrow bay, running bacte /our or five miles from the sea, and containing deep water for a considerable distance from the mouth. The entrance to the harbor la sheltered bylcrtty hllle, with a mountain range at the back, and the channel Is so narrow and tortuous, and so cut up by inferior bays and Islands that It would oe an Impossibility for our fleet to enter there in the face of the eleven- inch guns on the Spanish cruisers and the dangerous capability for sudden 'attack of the torpedo boat destroy- TODAY the Sixth Massachusetts tegiment will pass through Baltimore on its way to Chickamauga. The same regiment passed through Baltimore on its way to Washington on May 18, 1861, and was mobbed while changing cars. Six soldiers were killed and fifty wounded on that occasion. Today the Sixth Massachusetts will be warmly welcomed and each member of the regiment -will be presented with a handsomely decorated box of lunch bearing this inscription: "Maryland's Greeting 10 Massachusetts. A united country honors the men who are rallying to her defense. May the memory of 18bl be effaced by the welcome ot 1898." ."MUCH as it means to the North to see a Lee and a Grant serving side by side under the same banner, it means still more," says the Chicago Tribune, u to the South. It means the covering up and the forgetting of a sad and regrettable past. It means the renewal and cementing of a long interrupted brotherhood. For the first time In a generation it reopens to the gallant and naturally martial Southerners a chance to hold high petitions in the army and to win glory on the battlefield. Technically most of these disabilities hud melted away before the present year, but nothing had occurred to show the fact in practical form . It needed the Spanish war to finish the good work and give the signal that the hopes of thirty years have been realized." Where is the Oregon? The battleship Oregon must now be in Cuban waters. It may be with Sampson's squadron. It safe at port she has accomplished the longest and fastest Toyage ever made by a first- cl»88 battleship. She was built to flght, not to trayel swiftly, and yet the voyage from San Francisco to Martinique, a distance of 13,000 miles, WM made in fifty-seven days. She has sailed halt way around the world at an average speed of eleven knots an hear, going Bight and day, and •topping but four times to coal. Spain has BO tingle vessel as power- fulM the Oregon.

THE NEW WOMAN. One Preacher's View of Woman aa » Guide. A blatherskite preacher says, " Cinder woman's guidance man sinks incomprehensibly low." Undoubtedly the blatherskite preacher judges all women by bis own wife and mother, but he has no right to do it. If, however, woman desires to reach the very loftiest pinnacle of moral purity and superiority to baser passions, we know that all she has to do is to submit herself entirely toman's •will and guidance. How low women would sink, to be sure, if they did not have men to keep them up to the high mark cf goodness and purity! The new constitution of Louisiana confers suffrage on taxpaying women in all matters pertaining to the levying of taxes. Once more the ran do move. Miss Edith J. Griswold, a successful patent solicitor-of New York city, has written for The Alumnas News an admirable article on "Women as Patent Solicitors." She thinks this department of work is one which offers success and encouragement to women, and she gives some excellent advice on how to learn the business and gain a foothold in it. A snip of a young man in the Ohio legislature, that, too, the son of a good equal rights champion, the martyred President Garfield, had the gall to rise and say that women should not have suffrage because they were " too inexperienced in public matters to be in- trnsted with votes." Great heavens, but this is delicious! Some one has said that the saddest thing on earth is a childless woman. Considering what so many women's children are, I doubt the statement very much. Frances Willard proved her truly enlightened and progressive ideas by leaving directions that her body should ba cremated. After a time all the world will sse that cremation is as truly orthodox a way of disposing of dead bodies as any other, besides being the only sanitary method. What a horror this pure, sweet earth would he if we were to make it one huge oharnel hoase 1 It is not generally known that Smith college for women was founded by » woman, Miss Smith. There is no need for women to be jealous of one another in competing in the industrial field. If each does her own task as well as it can be done, that is enough. She has no need to fear anybody. To be jealous of the advancement of another is to confess your own inferiority. Give a generous hand and helpful word to every sister woman you can. It will be returned to you a hundredfold.

Some Women For Whom Xationa Hare Fonght—Why Society Women Are Moved to Enllut a* Ktd Croat Xattf» —The Ut- tle Boy and Hi» Drum. 'Copyright, 1898, by American Press Asso' elation.] .Mrs. Theodore W. Birney, president of the mothers'congress in Washington, made a speech in opening that assemblage which bide fair to set the American women wild with indignation. Mrs. Birney says that the American small boy is badly brought np becanse the email boy's hankering after toy drums and flags and muskets and tin trumpets is ministered nnto by the American •oman. "The most recent development of war," says this lady, "has illustrated the wonderful power that rests in a common cause.' Every paper contains an account of some outburst of enthnsi- isin, -while the sight or mention of the flag brings a sparkle to the eye, color to the cheek and cheers to the lip. We are but children after all, pleased with a symbol, and often mistaking vanity for patriotism, emotion and false sentiment lor strong purpose and high resolve. Jet us eliminate from childhood the swords and gnus and caps, the toy cannon and other destructive emblems of •war. Let us educate our children away from false ideas of patriotism. War, •with its attendant horrors, is as false a god as any Juggernaut to which fanatic mothers ever threw their infant chil- A MINSTEKING ANGEL. dren, and the time will come when no civilized nation or mother will glorify in such sacrifice of human life, bnt will say humanity is better served by arbitration and by peace." Now, Mrs. Birney and the women who applanded so rapturously this well sounding oratory may flatter themselves that they are preaching the gospel of peace; insjgad they are merely the prophets of the new sentimentality. Doubtless they have forgotten the philosopher who said it is "war which makes peace possible." They may have forgotten, too, that if it were not, ,,for women wars would go out of fashion. Women have made'more wars than ever toy drums and trumpets and swords, are likely to stir. It was Pascal, cynical old fellow, was it not, who said that "if Cleopatra's nose had been longer the whole face of the world would have been different." Zenobia, Semiramis, Cleopatra, Helen of Troy, Brunhild, Maria Theresa, Catherine of Russia, Eli'zabeth of England, Mary of Scotland, Catherine de 1 Medici, Vittoria Colonna, Marguerite de Valois, Jeanne d'Arc and Eugenie of France have inspired battles. It was poor, unhappy little Evangelina Cisneros who by her beauty and misfortune aroused the whole American people's sympathies for Cuba and as mnch as anything enlisted them as the enemies of Spain. The youthful Moses, David, Cyrns, Alexander, Cassar, Napoleon, Washington and Grant were very likely fond of military toys and got them, bnt it would be a very thoughtless person who would say that they were brought up by foolish women. The trouble with most of us in this age is that we lack good red blood in our veins and good wholesome thoughts in our brains. If there was more fighting going on, there would be fewer anse- mic, introspective men and women making a specialty of the degenerate. The Elizabethan era, in which war was the fashion, resulted in more that was ennobling to the human heart and mind than any other period brought to the Anglo-Saxon race. The greatest things in art and literature and music have been in a wny dependent on the expression of the free and fearless spirit of a free and fearless people, -ready to back their word of month with the eterner argument of the sword. Until all little boys are as good as the little boy-who "won't slap back" the world is going to have the old story of the tyrant and the oppressor. Moral suasion, it is to be regretted, does not count for mnch either with small nr- chins or nations. Ever since prehistoric man, clad in an auroch's skin, went forth to conquer or be conquered women have worshiped tljp" waving banners and the plumes of •war." It is an instinct and was designed for a wise purpose. Nations that do not go to war much are weak and nam- bv pamby and suffer quite as painfully from ennui as from the aggressions of their neighbors. Bloodletting is a good thing now and then, and war has often proved itself a wholesome moral surgeon. Everywhere and at every time there has been some nation or man wisar and stronger and more progressive than all the others, and it is well for human progress that, as a rule, these men and peoples have been able to staniD their individuality npon the •weaker and less clear seeing. It is of course unfortunate that to effect this a few men have died, but—• To every man upon this earth Death cometh soon or law* And how can man die better Than facing fearful odda '}.

It is to the humanity of women that the more merciful principles which govern the laws of civilized warfare siay be attributed. The Red 3ross socie-ty is due to the humanity of a woman. So have been all the great movements whose object has been the alleviation of the miseries of soldiers. Women do not care to aim a musket or level a cauuon, but they have in cases of bitter necessity proved that they could do so when the honor of their ountry was at stake. Women prefer that men should do the fighting, and they like them better for being able to do so and wishing to fight. When men as a class become weak, effeminate crea- ;nres, then women, because they do not jelieve in men's courage or ability to protect them, will want to do the fighting ihemselves. Nine cases out of ten the would be amasson has been associated with sissy men or dudes or degenerates. The woman whose father,' brothers, bus- sand and cousins and friends are great, strong armed, brave hearted fellows are never in the least inclined to organize a regiment or don a uniform. If one recollects how many society women are anxious to go to the front as Bed.Oross nurses or in any capacity the country wiU accept them, the truth of this will be seen. The average society man as a specimen of American manhood does not as a rule, inspire either confidence or admiration. It is therefore foolish to say that "if women had any say" there would be no wars. When war becomes so fearful that it means mutual annihilation, then wars way cease, but so long as they have not reached that perfection the nations will go on fighting and little boys will like tbeir toy drums and trumpets. CAROLINE WKTHEREIL. Illinois Miners and Operators. Springfield, Ills., May 21.—Over one hundred miners and sixty operators are here attending the joint conference oJ miners and operators of Illinois. The conference has heard complaints of the Fourth district operators, who say they cannot pay the scale and compete with Danville and Grape Creek in the Chi,ago market.
