New York, February 4'A cable
to the Tribune from Havana says:
A dispatch from Madrid published
in 151 Mutido this morning, saying
that the Cuban Minister was request
ed bv the Minister of Foreign Af
fairs of Spain to take down the
Cuban flag because of the ordinance
against foreign flags flying over
private houses, has caused great
Representative Castillo introduced
in the House this afternoon n res
olution asking President Palma to
cable immediately to Senor Mcr
clian, the Cuban Minister, for parti
culars of the incident, and to place
nil the circumstances before Con
gress. The resolution was passed,
Much bitterness was displayed.
It is argued that as Senor Mcrchan
had presented his credentials, his
home was the Cuban Legation ami
was not subject to the law regard
ing foreign flags. If it develops
that the Minister was compelled to
lower the flag if is certain the
House will vote to recall the Cuban
Legation from Madrid, thus causing
a breach in the diplomatic relations
between the two countries. There
is fear, too, that some anti-Spanish
Cubans here might tear down Span
The rapidity with which snake
poison acts in producing fatal re
sults is, of course, familiar to every
one, states the London Chronicle;
hence the investigations which have
had for their object the discovery
of an antidote to the virus have at
tracted a large amount of attention.
Prominent among those who have
experimented are Dr. Calmette of
Lilly and Professor Fraser of Edin
burgh. The mode of research is
tliat of rendering an animal im
mune to snake poison by its inocu
lation with small doses of the virus,
the quantity being gradually in
creased till the animal survives an
amount of poison sufficient, it may
be, to kill half a dozen of its kind.
A principle known as "antivenin"
is developed in the animal's blood,
and it is this substance which can
be used as an antidote to ward off
fatal effects when man has been
bitten. Weir Mitchell long ago
demonstrated that each species or
group of snakes elaborates its own
special virus; hence it appears
likely that for each bite we may
demand a separate remedy. A
modified opinion holds that while
antivenin obtained from one snake
holds good for that snake's bite
alone, it may also exercise an effect
of modified character in the case of
injury from another and different
reptile. In connection with this
topic it may be of interest to note
that the immunity of the mongoose
to the effects of snake bite is really
due to that little animal having
naturally developed in its blood an
antidotal principle, ' presumably
allied to antivenin.
