Commander at Santiago Faces a Situation, Insurgents Show an Ugly Spirit. Order Given to lloId the In- surgents In Cheek. WASHlXGTOX, Aug. 16.--As a result of today's cabinet meeting the policy of the administration in regard to the Cu- bans and future government of Cuba is now well defined. Law and order will be maintained a all hazards, even if it becomes neces- sary to u . the whole United States army to do it. There will be no recog- nition of the independence of Cuba un- til there is a stable form of govern- ment, established through the medium of the ballot box, for the United States to recognize. The United States. mean- while, will maintain a military form of government, and while dealing justly and liberally with the Cuban insur- gents, will not permit any interference with the laws and edicts laid down by this country for the maintenance of peace and order throughout the island. Instructions have today been issued from the office of the adjutant-general, having the object it) view of pl'evcnting riotous or disorderly conduct in Cuba. This is the dispatch sent to Gen. II. W. Lawton. the commanding general oi the department of Santiago: "Replying to your telegram for instruc- tions, the president directs that yon be in- formed that the United tates is responsi- ble for peace and must maintain order in the territory surrendered and in your de- partment, and must protect all persons and their prol)erty within said jurisdiction. "Interferenee from any quarter will not be permitted The Cuban insurgents should be treated justly and liberally, but they, With all others, must recognize the military occupation and authority of the United States and the cessation of hostilities pro- claimed by this government. Yea should see insurgent leaders and so advise them." Swift and Anomaloos. This swift and anomalous change in tile relations of Americans and Cubans anti Spanish has given rise tea question which has puzzled the adn)inislrution.

Aug. 16.--It ts rumored here that the United States troops at Manila have had trouble with the rebel forces under Gen. Affuinaldo. Accord- ing to one account the insurgents, upon whom various restrictions had been placed by Gen. Merritt, mutinied at not being permitted to have any share in the surrender of the city. It is re- ported that they attacked the Ameri- cans in the trenches. The officers of the German warship Kaiserin Augustin received instructions to give no information about the bom- bardment, but it is freely stated that there was great loss of. life on both sides. It is feared that the steamer with the peace proclamation, which was ex- pected to reach Manila this morning, may not have arrived there until after Rear Admiral Dewey h',tl sent cruisers to hoist the United States flag" at 11oiio and Ccbu. 8PANISII VERSION G] VEN. Americans Crowded Them Right Out at Manila. t|ox'o KO. Aug'. 16.--Admiral Dewey flare Gen. August[ an hour in which to surrender, at the time of the last de- mand, made on Saturday. Gen. August[ refused to comply. The bombardment,, which began at 9:30 a.m.. was continued for two hours, and then the Americans stormed the trenches, sweeping all before them. Those within the walls attempted no resistance. The First Colorada Volun- teers stormed the outer trenches and drove the Spaniards into the second line of defenses. Then the American troops swept on. driving all the Span- lards into the inner fortifications, where the Spanish eommander, seeing that further resistance was useless, hoisted the white flag and surrendered. The Josses. American and Spanish, are not yet known. The Spaniards in the trenches probably mlmbered 8,000 men. The American attacking force numbered 10,000. and the Americans were better armed, better trained and in better eondition. The foreign fleets watched the boln- bardment with acute interest. The American warships engaged were the Olympia. Petrel, Raleigh, McCulloch, Boston. Monterey, Charleston and Bal- timore. The Spaniards assert that the fire of the Americans for the most part fell short, the only effective fire being from a small gunboat armed with quick-fir- ing guns. that was close in-shore. It is also asserted by the Spaniards that "the Americans lost heavily in the storming, owing to the faulty construc- tion of their intrenchments, which the Spaniards could command from the heights and upon which they poured a galling fire." The Spanish trench extended around Manila at a distance of from two to four mijes from the walled city, form- ing a circle ten miles in cirenmference, and it was impossible, the Spaniards say, to hold so long a line against the nowadays?"

Consul-General Wihlman today re- ceived a report from Admiral Dewey, saying titat it was intended after tle capture of Manila to dispatch couriers on August 14 to Iloilo and Cebu, to ac- cept the surrender of those ports, and also to send cruisers to Port Royalist, in Talawan, to capture the Spanish gunboats hiding there. Another ship was detailed to capture the Spanish steanmrs plying between Le Baun and lloih). Four Spanish gunboats at Ba- taan, in Panaya, were also to be cap- tured. Consul Wildman credits the re- port, and sys that simuld tim vessels have left before the arrival at Manila of the British steamer Australia, whleh was chartered to carry the news of the signing oil,the protocol and the cessa- tion of hostilities to that place, it Will be an impossibility to recall the vessels in three weeks.

When a father writes that yours "is the best medicine iu the world." you can 'allow something for seeming extrava. gance in the statement it you know that the medicine so praised, cured a loved daughter of disease and restored to her the eyesight nearly lost. The best med. icine in the world for you is the medicine that cures you. There can't be anything better. No medicine can do more than cure. That is why JohnS. Goode of Orrick, Me., writes in these strcng terms: ' Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla ts the best med- icine in the world. My daughter had a relapse after the measles, due to taking cold. She was nearly bl ind,and was obliged to remain in a dark room all the time. The doctors enuld give her no relief: one 91 them directed me to give her Ayer's arsaparilla. Two bottles cured her com. letely." The thousands of testimonials to the value of Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla repeat over aud over again, in one form or another the expression: "The doctors gave her no relief: one of them directed me to ive her Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Two ottles contpletely cured her." It xs a conl,non experience to try Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla as a last resort. It is a common experience to have Dr. Ayer'S Sarsaparilla prescribed bv a physician, It isa common experience"to see a "corn, plete cure" follow Lhe use of a few bottles Of this great blood purifying medicine. Because, it is a specific for all forms of blood disease. If a disease has its origiu in bad or impure blood, Dr. Ayer's Sar aparila, acting directly on the blood, re. moving its impurities and giving to it vitalizing energy, will promptly eradicata the disease. The great feature of Dr. A 'er's Sarsap, riIlaisthe radical cures that result from its use. Many medicines only suppress disease--they push the pimples down under the skin, they paint the complexioa with subtle arsenicalcompounds, but the disease rages in the veins like a pent-u fire, and some day breaks out in a vol- canic eruption that eats up the body. Ayer's Sarsaparilla goes to the root. t makes the fountain clean and'the waters are clean. It makes the root good and the fruit is good. It gives Nature the elements she needs to build up the broken down constitution--not to brace it np with stimulants or patch it up on the surface.

Mrs. Pinkham Counsels Young Wives to Their Attractiveness A Letter From a Young Wife, Kcep Seven-eighths of the ,. men in this world mar- " I ry a woman because she is beautiful in their eyes. What a disappoint- ment then to see the " fair young wife's beauty fading away before a year passes over her head! I feel as if Iwould like to / say to every young woman who is about to be married" Strengthen yourself in advance, so that you kvill not break down X tinder the new strain on your powers." Keep your beauty, it is a precious pos- scssion! Your husband loves your beauty, / he,is proud to be seen in public with you; tryto keep it for his sake, and your own. The pale cheeks, the dark shadows under the eyes, the general drooping of the young wife's form, what do they mean? They mean that her nerves are failing, that her strength is going and that something must be done to help her through the coming trials of maternity. Build her up at once by a course of some tonic with specific pow- ers. Such as Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. You can get it at any druggist's. Following we publish by request a letter from a young wife--of her own accord she addresses it to her "suffering sisters," and while from modesty she asks to withhold her name, she gives her initials and street number in Chambersburg, Pa., so she can easily bc found personally or by letter: To my Suffering Sisters:--Let me write this for your benefit, tell- ing you what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has done for me. I am but nineteen and suffered with painful menstruation, leucorrhcea, dizziness, burning sensation back of ears and on top of my head, nervousness, pain and soreness of muscles, bearing-down pains, could not sleep well, was unable to stand without pain, and oh! how I longed to be well! One day I wrote to Mrs. Pinkham telling her all, knowing I could do so in perfect confidence. * She wrote me a lovely letter in reply, telling me exactly what to do. After taking nine bottles of the Compound, one box of Liver Pills, and using one-half package of Sanative Wash, I can say I am cured. I am so happy, and owe my happiness to none other than Mrs. Pinkham. Why will women suffer when help is near ? Let me, as one who has had experience, urge all suffering women, especially young wives, to seek Mrs. Pinkhams advice.Mrs. R. S. R., I 3 E. Catherine St., Chambersburg, Pa.
