SPECIAL TO THE AUGUSTA HERALD.
Washington, Aug. 19.—Admiral Dew
ey's terms for the surrender of the
Philippines seem to have settled the
question of whether all or a part of
that group of islands shall be retained
by this countnry.
"Keep up the flag” is now the wateh

of Washington. The question, "Daw
ey has given the Philippines to Amer
ica—who will dare to give them back
to Spain," finds no answer here.
Krom all over the country come evi

McKinley’s mail is swelled every day
with letters and petitions urging an
nexation of the entire group.

The leaders of public opinion now in
Washington nearly all favor the taking
