Wm'l mentof the Island, bpaln tnmt do as England
H'l bu done In Canada withdraw nil her military
If forces from her nutonomona colony. There Is
))' but one small garrison nt Halifax. Spain knows
1MV? that under any real ) stem of local self-govom-
1 ment the Cubans would havo tho rlyht to bear
' MM arm, and then sho would hnvotu withdraw her
I ft' European garrisons, rxctM from a few
f strategical points. Spain Is convinced that
la. twnty-fonr hours after theso conditions exist
IF In Cuba her flc would eenso W wave over the
if, Morro Cnstle. For this reason, perhats,
I jH Canovas has asserted "that nil essential pre-
Jf, rogntlves of sovereignty and powers of gotcrn
I ll? went In that colony will continue to beexer-
Hj cited In Bpaln," which, translated Into plain
, fl English, means that If the Cubans would bo
J foolish enough to lay down their arms again,
?' they would again be duped.
( Another difficulty arises outof the commercial
2 aspect of tho question. The treaties In which
V Cuba will be interested will be mado for tho
f benefit and with the intervention of Cuba, nnd
j -. Cuba would cease to be a trlbnUry of Spanish
' p Mrloulture and Industry by the abolition of tho
f high tariffs which to day turn Cuba Into a prlv-
y' lleged market for Spain; the (22,000,000 of
' . Spanish produots artificially forced upon Cuba
sjTery year would cease. The discriminating
'i tariff and flag duties which have contributed to
J the prosperity of Rarcelona,Sanlauder,Corunna.
X Cadiz, Malaga, and Valencia and many minor
1 V portsof the mother country would be abrogated;
j f and the mere prospect of such an occurrence Is
5, enough to cause the Spanish Oovernment to
!tt a revolution at home. Instigated by It he
Dpanlsh manufacturers, who hate no other
market but Cuba, and who would rise to a man,
eetng that their profits are going to the natural
commercial metropolis of Cuba, the United
4 States, to those whom they call the "land of
i shopkeepers " or "the land of the hog."
The last obstacle, norhaps the greatest. Is that
no party In Bpaln will accept the guaranty of a
s foreign power to carry out her undertaking.
' Mr. Cleveland says In his message that "the
United Btstea would endenvor to find a way,
', Dot objectionable to Spain, of furnishing such
I J guaranty'," but if we are to Judge by the insults
Leaped dally upon the United States by the
it press and people of Bpaln, it would be Indeed a
' bard task to find any form of guaranty which
I i would bo acceptable to the Bpanlsh nation,
i whloh In all Its classes hates and cordially de
j I spites the American people. Canovas, repro-
- tenting the proud Bpanlsh hidalgo, has nn-
. awered Mr. Cleveland In very plain terms.
"Spain." he snts. "cannot undertake to be
voided In her domestic affairs by any other
f Government, nor can she allow any foreign
agitation to Influence her In dealing with her
rebellious colonic " " Bpaln Is not Turkey," he
lias arrogantly exclaimed
The United Blatos como second In our con
sideration of the subject, Supposing, for the
, sake of argument, that some superior hpanlsh
. tnlnd should propose " genuine autonomy," and
tLat the Bpanlsh people, suddenly transformed
1 in a day, stinuld acquire the political mlnil
' Yrhlch has not bcendoveloped In three centuries.
conld tho United tates enter Into this curious
V and extraordinary arrangement! The United
L Plates conld not burden themselves with the
L responsibility of a protectorate, over both Cuba
t and iplu. They would have to accept the
i eternal rfile of policemen watching over his
i. Most Catholic Mujesty to see that his .Most
i Cathollo Majesty fulfils his contract. The
j v United States must have an Immense standing
army and navi to as to coerce morally In case
' of necessity. Commerce, even with reciprocity
'II ) bribes, would bo In constant danger: the
H , Stock Exchange would oscillate at every
I despatch from Cuna: the country would
I I i live under the hugahoo of au Invis
ible and yet probable war scare: no good
Ji times and prosperity could be possible under
', this Ingenious state of allnlrs. Were Spain to
' admit tho guaranty of the United .States, no
, should have Bpaln keening a r.omlnnl sorer-
!' algnty over Cuba and the United Mates super-
Tiling Spain and retraining the Cubans, sbuuld
they aspire to break at any time the
ties thnt bind them to the European monarchy.
; The temper of the American people has been
shown In this respect. Statesmen of all parties
' would not permit such a drsplcable action to be
, I consummated. Tills (iovernment cannot be
i the sponsor of bpanlsh domination. na, of
j tyranny. In Cubu. A free and liappy country
! cannot barter tho hanplnoss and freedom of a
1 gallant people for certain commercial advan
tages we cannot be made to believe that the
Island Is to remain " In the claws of the tiger "
for the sake of any treaty whatever. There Is
f no American hand which would sign such a
I document, no American who would ratify with
' ' bis vote such an npostacy of American princi
ples. A llepubllcan senator, Cushman K. Datls,
' baa said In reference to any assistance to be
given Spain to put down the Cuban patriots:
!L r,The people of this country would not permit
J snch a usurpation of great power." A Demo-
cratlo Buuator, Wllllsm I.lndtay. has uttered
these bravn words "To do that would he In
II famous. This coantr) will never do It. No
U arrangement v. Ill receive the approval of the
. Senate that Is not entirely satisfactory to tho
; insurgents In tho Held "
The United States of America, after ISO years
ot Independence, docs not seem to bo the pioper
country to become the guaranty for monarchies.
The American people follow to-ilay the wishes
v of Washington, who desired liberty for all no-
, tlons. Ihej do not care to tee Cuba continue a
, colony: they want to tee her a sister republic.
, And now wo come to the third party, to Cuba,
the most Important of all, becuuse In the deter
mination of the conflict depends the very
, axlstenco of her children. For absolute Inde
pendence they have Inbored for more than three
l quarters of a century. They hate carried on
I the war for ten jears, and since the ".'1th of
v February. 1805. the havo given their blood
; and money without stint to conquer oncu for all
the Inalienable rights of frie men. It Is Idle to
' think that the unulrt accept, after, quoting tho
president's word", "the stability two years'
duration lias given to the insurrection, tho
feasibility o( its Indoflnite prolongation In the
nature of things, nnd as shuwn by past expert-
ence," reforms which were such a farce to thorn
that they ere obliged to appeal to arms.

Mount Vkiinow. N. Y., Jan. .1. At the morn
Ingservlce to-day In St. Paul's German Lutheran
Church, the Hev. C. V. Bommcr. tho pastor, pro
sided. The Hov. Mr. Kelt of Now Vork, mis
sionary of the German Lutheran Church,
stationed at Kills Island, prsached tho sermon.
The lawyers representing the adherents of Mr.
Sotnmer and the antl-ommer faction occu
pied front pews. Constables Ileldlng and Von
Garret were on guard at the door. No allusion
was mads In the sermon to the church U I fa
culties. At the close of the sermon Christian Kolpln,
President of the Hoard of Trustees elected on
Monday night by the faction opposed to the
Her. Mr. Bommcr, walked down the centre aisle
and read from a paper as follows: "I, as tho
Presldont of the Hoard of Trustees of this con
gregation, desire to state thnt on Dec. 28. 1800.
onr regular election tt as held. John U. Wlntgen
and Christian Miller were elected trustees for
one year. John Itoscher nnd Hermann Schmidt
for two yean. Christian Kololn and Frederick
W. Nlenuyer for three years. The board has
reorganlxrd with Christian Kolpln, Prssident;
John Horcher, Treasurer, and I rederlck W.
Nlemejer, Secretary. All moneys collected and
all moneys due the church must be paid to the
Secretary. Two deacons are to be elected dur
)nr the weeL."
Mr. Kolpln then thus addressed the Her. Mr.
Sommer: "You have stated to us In writing
that you will not recognlre this Hoard of Trus.
Jees. and we have called n mretlnv for Jan. II,
t S o'clock, when the matter will be decided.
At the same time, grave charges will be nre
sented aiatntt )ou, and will be considered by
this new Hoard ot Irustees, On Jan. 1.1 the
board will report to the congregation. It It ex
pected that tbo congregation will then take
proceedings to oust you. If )ou have not In the
meantime tent In your resignation." Mr. Kol
pln again addressed the pastor: "llr what
right," he asked, "was the Her. Mr. Kell
brought to Mount Vernon to prencb, being a
memoer of the Missouri Conference"
Mr. Sommer made no answer.
As the congregation filed out Mr. Heeker. a
friend of tbo Hev. Mr. Sommer. met some mem
bars ct the opposing faction. He shouted:
"Mockery; it's a shame. Hod will punish you
for blasphemy." Lawyer Frederick Vr. Ernst
said after tho morning service that legal pro
ceedings would be at once Instituted against
thenntl-Sooitncr faction. Mr. Summer aud bis
friends hate drawn up formal charges, tt Is
said, acMnst Police Sergeant Hrckwlth and the
Satrolmen who were on duty at the meeting
londay night, and who are accused of allowing
the antl-Sommer faction to take control of the
ballot box by force, to tamper with the gas
meter, and pick the door locks.
TUX TltXATMXT OF COSrlOT3.
Mr. Ttntltogton Jlootli Protest Hlroaclr
jLnnlant l&erplna: Tbena la Idleness.
Mrs. Ualllngton Booth added yesterday after
noon to her protest against the action of the
State authorities in taking employment away
from the convicts In the btate prisons nnd peni
tentiaries. She did so In the course ot an ad
dress made at tho Fourteenth street Presby
terian Chnrcn. on Second avenue. Tho work
hitherto provided by the State, she ssld, pre
vented many a mind and body from becoming
physical wrecks. Theconvlot mind needed oc
cupation to aarett from Itself. To confine able
bodied men In a small tomb sevon or eight feet
long by five feet wide was a most horribly
brutal thing to contemplate, Mrs. Hooth de
clared. "It means." said she, "that tho Judge who,
nnderthe new conditions, Impoios a penalty of
fit e or ten year upon a prisoner. Is virtually
condemning him to death, and theape, tre will
rite again against such a practice to claim Jus
tice at a higher tribunal. Lverybody who Is at
all a student of courlct life In prisons must ad
mit that under the old system of work ths ecu
tlcts were Improved mentally and morally. If
not physically. The higher the tonvlct In tho
Intellectual order, the greater the wear and tear
of confinement npon him.
"lhe question Is a tltal one to soclet) nnd
the State. It Is simply, shall convict serve
out their trras and be returned to the world,
perhaps to be reclaimed, or shall tin y servo bnt
a part and spend the rest of their days in
Insane as)lumsT The authorities cannot afford
to quibble over the question, and It seems In
me the imperative dot) of Christian men nnd
women to see to It that the convict mind uud
body Is kept at some sort of dally labor. People
generally should be made to understand the
awful tate to which these men have been
doomed. Taken from their work means the loss
of their salvation."

At the close of the communion service In the
Calvary tlaptlst Church, In Sumner avenuo and
Decatur street, Hroiklyn, yesterday, tho res.
Itnatlon of the Her. A. A. Cameron, the pastor,
to take effect on April 1, was announced, lhe
Hev. Mr. Cameron had unrelated ns usual and
the announcement of his resignation was re
ceived with general surprise.
While some of the officers and a few of the
members were awaro that ho had been for a
year contemplating such action, the majority of
the congregation were In Ignnrnnceof the fact,
'I he resignation was referred to a committee of
five, with Instructions to report nu Jan. 12.
The committee had a conference last avrnliig,
and It Is understood will request the pastor to
withdraw his resignation.
The church. It is said, has flourished under
the three years' pastorate of the Hev. .Mr Cnin
eron, und his relations with tho ollliers mid
members hate alna)s been most cordial It
lias, however, been oppressed with an Indebted
ness of oter $30,000, and It is understood that
tho difficulty to protlde for the running ex
penses, as well as for the mortgages had Home
thing to do with the purpose of the Hev, Mr.
Cameron to withdraw. "He has felt," one of
the members said last night, "that the church
was not In a position to pay his Halsry of S.'.iOO
a year and that It was his duty to relievo tho
trustees of the burden. I think, however, thul
he will be Induced to remain."

Law enforcement society, and has aided the

The Hev, Dr. D. C. Potter, dispossessed from
the PaptlstTnbernacIo, preached In the Welsh
Congregational Church, In Hast Eleventh
street, yesterday, and pitched Into the Haptlst
City Mission Society ard John D. Rockefeller.
The society had foreclosed mortgages It held on
thoTnbornacloand sold It under the hammer,
refusing to let tho congregation meet thereuntil
It oould get another meeting house. The Welsh
church and St. Mark's Kptscopil Church both
offered accommodation to the dispossessed con
gregation, and service was held yesterday
morning In the little Welsh church while the
1 abornncle remained empty. Dr. Potter said In
the prelude to his sermon:
"We are now deprived of our own beautiful
house, scarce S00 feet from whero we are moot
ing, by a soulless moneyed corporation from
which wo had borrowed money, tho Interest
upon which no could not pay. We are put In
the streot without a moment's warning by our
own and only City Church Extlnotlon foolety,
to whom we owed nothing, who never gavo ns
one penny, nnd who obtained the non-Interest
bearing mortgages they foreclosed without any
consideration whatever. In other words, wears
wounded In the house of our friends. Had we
been guilty of the technical faults alleged
against us (but we were not) less than $50 would
havo settled the mattor, and for this amount we
are robbed of over tVOO.OOO worth ot property
by Haptlst church members who this very hour
are sitting In their onn churches for the wor
ship of God,
"That this Iniquity wat being perpetrated
most all of the Haptlst pastors knew. Soma ot
tbem knew wo had written a respectful letter to
the board of the City Mission Society asking to
remain under our own roof until we could find
another shelter, and we promised expedition In
doing so, but eten as they heard our request
they pasted the matter oter to a committee,
who answered us by taking the locks off our
doors before tholr letter declining our requests
came through the mall.
"A member of that committee, Mr. S. V.
White, stood In our church about noon Wednes
day last and ho saw tve were ready for tho
evening service. I told him of the Impossibility
ot notifying you and of the disappointment of
our children. He replied that tho only man who
had anything to say was K. b. Clinch. 'Hut.' I
said, ' ho It not on the committee to whom this
mailer was referred.' I can't help that; he has
all the sn),' Our Haptlst brethren know this
Clinch, yet they employ him and allow him to
do this kind of business, and nter say one pro
testing word. And the) will not ray an thing,

lutlon Ths Fnelfle Rnllrsmd l'andlns:
mil tbe (special Order In the House.
Washington, Jan, .1, When the Senate
meets on Tuesday morning, after the holiday
recess. It Is quite likely that debate will begin
on matters pertaining to our foreign relation
and the position assumed by Secretary Olney
for the Executive. Whether Mr. Cameron will
call up the Cuban resolution on the opening
day of the session is not et known, for the
Senator has not returned to tho olty, and the
subject It entirely in bis hands. It Is hardly
thought that ho will seek to force the Issue on
the opening day, owing to the fact that there la
not likely to be a quorum of tho Senate present.
During the morning hour, however, nnderany
gnlse that may bo put forward, the debate on
the subject can he commenced, but It mutt give
way to the unfinished business at 3 o'clock, un
less there are sufficient votes to displace the
Oklahoma Froa llomestosd bit!.
Mr. Hale, who Is looked upon ns the leader of
the anti-Cuban sentiment In the Senate, ssld
yesterday thnt several Senators who had been
heretofore silent on tho subject had come out
against the Cameron resolution, andtherowa
now no posslblo chance for Its passage.
On the other hand, Messrs. Cameron, Lodge,
Chandler, Morgan, and Milts assert that the
sentiment favoring action by Congress Is bo
coming more vigorous, and that the lighting;
will be forced from the start. Mr. Hale, who,
in the absence of Mr. Allleon, Is acting Chair
man of the Committee on Appropriations, ex
pect to have the Army bill reported to the
b'enatoon Wednesday, and this will be put for
ward to antagontro the Cuban proposition.
Just before the holiday recsts tn House of
Representative!, upon the recommendation of
the Committee on Ilules, arranged the business
of tho House for the first week nf the new year.
On Tuesday and Wednesday the Loud bill to
amend the postal law so as to prohibit the
transmission In the malls of serial novel publi
cations and "sample" copies of newspapers at

of the Journal on Tuesday, the Bill lust, un
til 3 P. M. on Wednesday, and under the five
mlnuto rule upon proposed amendments until A

amendments and the final passage of the bill.
When the bill ni railed up, rather unexpect
edly, several weeks ng , It dovolupcd surprising
(trength, but since then thuoppeslllon has been
nctltc. nnd the chances of It passage aro now
considered rather doubtful.
After this bill has been disposed nf tho rest of
