"The President stated to me," said the general, v "that he was on lr waiting for a "comrjlete report of the naval board of inquiry and that should it report that our sail ors met their death through Span ish treachery, he was prepared to act at once, and in a manner which would meet the approval of every loyal American." General Powell said prepara tions for war were being pushed with the utmost' vigor and added: "I am cony inced that" President McKinley is the right man in the right place, and that as soon as Spanish treachery has ; been prov en bis policy will be rigid enough to meet the approval even of the most pronounced jingoes."
