She tried to enter a place at 830 Kansas

not disable her, and she at once seized the
hatchet carried by Mrs. "White.

HAVE TO WAIT
President Won't Act With-
URGES EXTRA SESSION
But Sentiment in Congress Is Not
Favorable to His Plan.
SITUATION IS VERY SERIOUS
Inn-nt of Cavalry Will' Be Re

I'liiucN of Rendezvous.
From The Journal Bureau, Room -45, Post
Washington, Feb. 5. —More and more the
talk of an extra session has to do with
Cuba and not with any of the other ques
tions now uppermost in the public mind.
President McKinley, keenly alive to the
importance of the Cuban situation, is urg
ing his extra session views right and left
upon republican leaders in both houses,
but strangely enough without thus far
securing that co-operation which he, no
doubt, thinks he is entitled to.
For various reasons there is strong sen
timent in congress against the 'extra ses
sion and in favor of having the president
individually assume whatever responsibil
ity may attach to the formal declaration
that this government is not satisfied with
the wording of the Cuban constitution.
The president thinks this responsibility
should be shared by congress.
If there is not an extra session, and the
events of the summer and fall in Cuba
show that in not calling one the president
was unwise, he will be criticized without
mercy in all- quarters, and if without the
aid of congress he should this summer
take some radical stand regarding Cuba,
and by so doing pave the way to serious
trouble with the Cubans he might make
himself the most unpopular president
since Andrew Jackson. The president be
lieves that in the multiplicity of council
there is wisdom, and it is on this score j
that he urges the extra session, although |
the other matters here referred to cannot
have escaped his attention.
It has been about determined that if.
congress objects to an extra session to
the extent of preventing the president
from calling it, there will be no radical
executive action regarding Cuba during
the summer and fall. The president
seems impressed with the belief that
congress should act with him, and if this
action does not come at an extra ses
sion it will come in the Fifty-seventh i
congress, and Cuba must wait. The
president holds that the question is so
important and so fraught with political
| possibilities, both for good and ill, that
| he ought not to abrogate to himself alone
the matter of deciding it.
This condition of uncertainty is of pecu- ]
.liar interest, because it ; indicates with
what seriousness all elements of thought
ful men in public life are regarding Cuba,
its future relations to this country and the
line of duty which must be followed by i
the United States government. None of j
the majority of the members of the com- !
mittee on relations with Cuba will now !
consent to give interviews on the subject. |
The minority members and democrats gen- j
erally are drilling enough to talk, although I
when the subject was first broached last j
week none of them cared to discuss it for I
The United States is to introduce Arch
bishop Ireland's famous Faribault plan in
|to the Philippines as a compromise be
tween the friars and their opponents. The
friars demanded army .protection in the
discharge of their religious duties, which
was promptly denied. Then they wanted
the public schools of the country to be
under the exclusive control of the Catholic
church, with sectarian instruction daily.
This also was denied, and the Faribault
plan was put forward by the government
as a substitute for all pending suggestions.
The Faribault plan is to permit the em
ployment of Catholic teachers, who give
; religious instruction to those that desire it.
Orders for recruiting the army up to its
maximum strength will be issued by Sec
retary Root in a few days. It is pro
posed to rendezvous the regiments at va
rious posts, the headquarters of each to
be established at some central point.
One regiment, probably of cavalry, will
be recruited in the department of Dakota, I
one battalion of which is to rendezvous I
at Fort Snelling, another at Fort Meade, ]
South Dakota, and the third at Fort As
It is the purpose of the department to I
rendezvous a battalion at each post large !
enough to accommodate 600 men or more.
Recruiting stations are already estab
lished in the large cities, but more will !
be opened in other places so that these i
who offer themselves for service will not
have far to travel.
Adjutant General Corbin's office was
crowded to-day with senators and repre
sentatives seeking information about ap
pointments in the reorganized army. !
j Among them were Representatives Gam
ble, Burke and Spalding. General Corbin
is now preparing a list of those to be ap
pointed, but he has not been able to figure i
out just how many appointments each
state will get.
Some time ago the - company and regi
mental commanders In the Philippines
were asked to furnish the. department with
efficiency records of the volunteer officers.
These are coming in. Such of these offi
cers as have good records and desire re
appointment in the regular service will be
given commissions. Vacancies left after
these appointments are made will be filled
I on the recommendation of senators alone
or of senators and representatives.
The North Dakota and the South Dakota
delegations have a number of applications
for these places, nearly all applicants hav
ing seen service in the Philippines.
General Corbin told his callers that the
department would like to make the ap
pointments from civil life on the basis of
