A Washington man offers an Infernal ma
chine for tlio use of Cubans In the struggle
for freedom. He is hunting u Cuban head
center, and when he finds the proper man
the iiijcl'ine will If turned over. He Is not
anxious to make money. He only n ants to
help the cause along.
The invention is a clever one, and a Email
balloon is needed in field transactions. An
infernal machine run by clockwork is at
tached to the balloon which is only a trifle
larger than Ihe toy affairs used by chil
dren. The only science required about the
entire affair Is to be able lo Judge the di
rection and velocity ot the wind. The bal
loon is then loosened-and goes floating off
on its mission.
The clockwork Is set for a certPln num
ber of minutes, say three. At the end of
that time the balloon is supposed to lie over
the enemy's camp or a lortilied town or
fort. Tiie three miiidtes past, the clock
work loosens a lKirtion or dvnaiuileand it
goes tumbling down on the enemy. The

He thought the Killoon attachment, how
ever, would make it or great value to an
urniy, or to the sort or warfare the Cubans
are carrjing on. So he came Willi his or
rer to the gentlemen who have the mass
meeting In charge. Of course, they could
do 'nothing in the matter. The rally is
not to be so practical as all this. He
went awaysad and disappointed.) ItshoW3
the Inti'rcst, though, that is being aroused.
SOME 01" THE FEATURES.
The extent or ihls Interest is not known
except to those gentlemen who are on the
inside or the movement. Mr. Simon Wolf
returned this morning from Fhilndelpljla
and found his desk piled high willi com
munications addressed to him as chair
man of the committee on arrangements.
They contained offers and suggestions ns
to what should be done, and will receive
'the proper attention. One was from an
attorney promliing funds when they should

will decide upon all the details of ttm
garnering, wno snail preside ami the order
of exercises. The meeting will not take
much time, and each member, it is honed,
will be there.
A number of Interesting features Tor
the meeting have be-en decided on. In ad
dition to the singing or the" lady men
tioned In The Times this morning, two
original poems will be recited. Col. John
Joyce has already written his, and it has
been presented to the chairman or the
executive committee, and Col. Joyce will
recite It. Dr. William A. Croffut. for
merly editor or the Geological Survey,
and a well-known newspaper man, will
also read an original poem. Dr. CroHut
is now at work on this, and it promises to
be one of the features of the evening. Emi
nent speakers are being requested to take
part, and their replies can be expected
in a few days. Several musical bodies
have offered their services, and the execu
tive committee will act on these offers.
GREAT INTEREST EXCITED.
Some idea of the Interest being taken in
the mass-meeting can be gathered from
this fact: One of the Chicago papers
has already secured cuts of Metzerntt
Hall and of some of tire gentlemen con
nected with the movement. Soe night or
the meeting the WashiiArton corresrjond-
ent of that paper will teleeranh from
five to eight thousand words about the
meeting. Other papers are making similar '
arrangements. There will be no single
meeting held In this country which will
attract the attention this will. All eyes
are upon It. It will express the senti
ment of the Capital the sentiment ot the
people who are living in direct commnncla-
tlon with the Administration. While In no
way will the meeting voice the sense ot
And Savin' Nothin.
the Administration, it is expected it will
have a 6trong influence.
Last n'glu at ll.e hcnQurt of Ihe Thirty
third di grce Masons the mere mention of
the recognition of Cuban belligerency
called forth the loudest cheers. These
gentlemen gathered from all over the
country. At the National Encampment of
Union Veteran I-rglnn thebarest mention
of Cuban Independence electrified Ihe
gathering.- So it is Ihrcugh nil this city,
nnd it I this which makes tfaq gentlemen

New York, Oct. 25. It was learned last
night tliat the represi.tatives of the Span

what is said to be a new plot on the part
of the sympathizers with the Cubau insur
gents, to ship ammunition from Ihe United

or the scheme some lime ago, and eniploved

in limes of war, however, dolls are not the

The fact that nothing has been heard from

indicates that the cartridges reached the

Its Bearing Upon the -Troubles, la
While nothing official can be learned in
Washington with reference lo any alleged
secret tieaty between Russia und China, it
is pot doubted that some understanding ex
ists between the two countries which will
result in the-ir mutual advantage.
European dispatches of recent dale con

Those wLo are familiar with Russian
statecraft say that the Char's government,
which is noted for lis clever intrig'jlng

For tins reason some iniiortaiice is at

pany had been selected byagcntsof the Rus

lo be found anywhere lu the world, and the
company was invited to St. Petersburg
lo negotiate fortheconstructionof the boats.
WHY IT WAS DONE.
After h& arrival there, however, he was
informed that it was the intention of the
offie-ials to abandon the route to Vladivo-
, stock aud extend the line to the Paclfio
coast tnrougn cnina or tsorea.
This was to be done, as Hie Detroit gen
tleman understood, by the organization ot
a corporation in one or both of
those countries, to be controlled, however,
by Russia. This being the case, the De
troiter was informed that'lt would not be
necessary for Russia to have the breakers,
and negotiations were declared oit.
