Another sensation has come out of
the American administration in
Cuba and this time it touched Gen
eral Leonard Wood, the bosom
friend of President Roosevelt, who
was the military governor up to the
time of the taking over of the gov
eminent by the Cuban Republic.
Special charges have been made
by Estes G. Rathbone, former Di
rector oi Ports of Cuba, that Gen.
Wood, while 'governor, used his
position to manipulate the Cuban
courts. He alleges tha,t the Gov
ernor forced the conviction of those
to whom he was opposed aud suc-t
ceeded also in securing the freedom
of those in whose interest he ex
erted his influence.
In addition to this charge the
allegation is made that Gcneial
Wood received gifts from gamblers,
iu return protecting them in the
carrying on of their business openly
iu the city of Havana.
General Wood who is still here
completing his report upon the con
duct of affairs in Cuba, denies all
and every charge and courts the
fullest investigation. Gen. Wood
is under orders for service in the
Philippines and should sail next
month but his departure may be
Estes G. Rathbone, Director
General of Port of Cuba, appointed
by Presideut McKinley, was con
victed with Neely and Reeves of
criminal irregularities and sentenced
to 10 years imprisonment and to
pay a fine of $35,324. Under the
general amnesty proclaimed by
President Palma he was released
last year and came home breathing
vengeance, He then directly
charged that he was made a scape
goat and that others used public
money to a greater extent than he
did. Since that time he has been
preparing for an attack on General
General Wood was charged in
congress with extravagance but no
inquiry was pushed. He was Colo
nel of the Rough Riders aud pro
moted to be Brigadier General for
gallantry, later being made Major
General of Volunteers aud then
Brigadier General of Regulars. It
is said he is Presideut Roosevelt's
candidate for Lieutenant General
commanding the army upon the
retirement of General Miles in Aug
Stnud by Castro.
Caracas, Venezuela, March 23.
The Congress of the republic has
unanimously refused to accept the
resignation of President Castro.
This is only a part of the vindica
tion required by the great leader,
but the resignation has had a more
far reaching effect even than per
haps he anticipated, for the an
nouncement comes today from Wil-
lemstad that, in view of the pro
posed abdication of Castro, revolu
tionist Matos, not be outdone in
generosity by his rival, has agreed
to keep the peace. And so there
may be a season of real rest for the
distracted South American state,
Jup Lubor for Canal.
Panama, March 23. The Japa
nese Commissioner of Industry,
Minikishi, who was sent here some
time ago by the Tokio government
to study the labor problem on the
isthmus as connected with the pro
posed, building of the canal by the
Americans, has sailed for home.
Before his departure he expressed
the belief that laborers from his
country would be sent to build the
canal, as Japan has the only supply
of laborers for that purpose that
could be depended upon to do the
PARDON FOR MRS. MAYHRICK.
American Woinnu In English Prison
Loudon, March 23. It is offici
ally announced that Mrs. Florence
Maybrick will be pardoned and
released rom prison in 1904. Per
sistent efforts have been made by
Ambassador Choate, Baroness dc
Roques, mother of Mrs. Maybrick,
and many others to secure this re
mission in sentence of the notorious
American woman who has served
In an English prison since 18S9.
In Liverpool, iu August, 1886.
after a trial of just one week, Mrs.
Florence Maybrick was convicted
of murder in the first degree and
was sentenced to death by Justice
Stephen. She was charged with
the wilful murder by poisoning of
her husband, James Maybrick, a
cotton broker iu that city. A fort
night later it was announced that
the sentence had been commuted to
oue of penal servitude for life and
since that date, although appeals
have been made for her release
successively to each new Home
Secretary, the woman has been
confined in prison with little pro
spect of getting out. Mrs. May
brick was a young American of re
spectable family, when nt eighteen
she was married to the middle-aged
cotton merchant. He was forty
two. They had two children with
in a few years afterward. They
lived in Liverpool. Maybrick died
on May nth. There were suspic
ions during his illness and after his
death a search was made of the
home for poisons, with a result
which soon led to Mrs. Maybrick's
On Mrs. Maybrick's conviction n
mob hooted both judge and jury
aud the clamor of the people was
so great that the sentence was com
muted. Clam llarton Resigns.
Washington, D. C, March 22.
Miss Clara Barton, for many years
head of the Red Cross Society,
which she has represented on battle
fields the world over and on occa
sions of great disasters throughout
the country, has resigned from the
Presidency and retired from the
management of the Society.
Miss Barton's resignation from
the Society has been expected for
some weeks. Charges were made
that she was retaining control of
the organization through arbitrary
methods, and over these she had a
little tilt with President Roosevelt.
Great Strike Impending.
Cripple Creek, Colorado, March
23. Labor troubles iu the mines
are again threatening to become
acute. The miners' unions are on
the verge of the greatest strike in
the the history of Colorado, it is
said, aud the mine owners, on their
part, arc talking of shut downs
which will mean that 5000 men
will be thrown out of employment.
This will precipitate a condition
such as obtained here when troops
had to be called out to keep peace
in tht mountain districts.
I'eaco for Uruguay.
Washington, Mar. 23. Admiral
Summer cables from Montevideo
that peace in the Republic of Urug

cruiser Pallas was compelled to laud
troops to preserve order.
CRISIS IN URITISH MINISTRY.
Chamberlain Mny Secure Premier
Loudon, March 22. It is freely
predicted that a crisis in the min
istr is imminent. The radical
measures of Balfour, the Brodrick
army measures, the Irish land bills
and other extreme legislation has
caused such a revulsion of feeling
that the Premier is expected to soon
see the impossibility of going on in
the struggle and so give it over.
The sentiment is almost unani
mous that iu the event of Baltour
stepping down Chamberlain will be
called upon to form a new ministry.
The Colonial Secretary was prom
inently mentioned for the premier
ship when Lord Salisbury retired
and it is believed he would under

political journals unite in express
ing the opinion that the resigna
tion of President Castro of Ven
ezuela is nothing more than a polit
ical move made to strengthen his
J position in the face of the revolu-
j tion at home.

Kingston, Jamaica, March 23.
Advices received here from Port of
Spain, Trinidad, report that Sou
friere volcano has again broken out
in violent eruption, the sound be
ing that of a bombardment. . The
heavens over the islands of Marti
nique and St. Vincent are darkened,
and people are fleeing from their

the islands are doomed to destruc

San Domingo, March 23. The

leave to report that they believe
this fund should be kept separate
