Tlierc is no longer any doubt thatlhe Uni
ted Gtatcs will within a short period give
I fo.-mal and official aid to the Oiban revolu
tionists It may not lie a recognition of bel
ligerency, but the action to be taken will be
equHlIy far reaching and .beneficial in lis
Tlierc has never been a struggle waged
for Independence in which the unanimous
expression of popular sentiment was so
favorable to tho weaker party. Tbe auton
omy of Cuba has lea for decades the theme
of prajers, hopes and petitions, and as Hie
crisis draws near lhelr fervency increases.
It Is a malter of certainly that had the
Cuban patriots been able to establish and
maintain a de facto govenent it would
have received prompt recognition by the
United States at any lime during the past
four decades This has beei.-held necessary
6incc ihc diys of Monroe in order to afford
sufficient grounds upon which to base rec
ognition. But after one experiment In concentra
tion, the establishment of a capital, the
election of a president and the formation
of a government, followed by the burning
of lhelr federal city to prevent It from being
captured by tbe Spaniards, ho departure
has been made from tbe guerrilla method of
Tliis plan will be rontinued as. the only
one which docs not invite certain destruc
tion, and no attempt will be made to seize
and hold a port, establish a de facto gov
ernment or elect national officials, which
would be i.ecessary as a bjsis uion which
to demand recognition of belligerency,
until fcjdi time as Spain shall be forced to
make thusc concessions which will be sat
isfactory to the revolutionists.
TIME HAS AUUIVED.
It Is now learned on unquestioned au
thority that the United States, Tor the
second time in the history of Its relations
with Spain, believes that the opportune oc
casion has arrived when this Government
should Interfere in matters pertaining to
Cuba, both for the protection of Its own
ell irons mxl In the interest of civilization
It is an Indisputable fact that American
citizens have mate capital invested in Cuba
than tho'e of any otier imtlonallty. Some
of the large fugar districts are owned en
tirely by residents of the United Stales.
All of the railroad Hues were constructed by
American capital. Whenever a planta
tion Is devastated and lis buildings burned
as a result of the prevailing clUl war four
chances out of five are in favor of an
American being the sufferer.
As a matter of fact. It Is apparent that
Cuba Is belug rapidly transformed Into a
colony of Americans by reason of a rather
peculiar circumstance. Almost every collego
In the United Stales has several Culians
enrolled among Us students. These young
men range. In age from 17 to 20. Under
the existing naturalization laws It is rut
necessary for a minor to declare his In
tention f becoming a citizen. Hence upon
compleli(ig his collegiate course the young
Cuban has attained his majority and goc3
home a bona fide citizen of the Untied
States, whereas his parents are still eut
jeets of Spain. In this manner the popula
tion of Cuba Is rapidly and legally be
The only, reason which has heretofore pre
vented the United Slates government from
taking more vigorous action looking to the
better protection of Its citizens has been a
disinclination to forcibly interfere In the
affiars of a friendly foreign power. It
has even been held that no precedent ex
isted for such interference.
But It is now slated that the most em
phatic, complete and convincing precedent
has been discovered, in -the case of Spain
herself, and occurred during a period of
revolution. It Is said that the AdmlniR
tratiou will, if ncccstary, avail Itself uf
thiprccedent as a form of procedure, If
all other alleniatlves fail.
The fact has never been denied that Pres
ident Cleveland has the courage of bis
convictions and will not hesitate to per
form ids duty, if he believes it to be right
and in accordance with the established
usages of government. It is therefore con
sidered highly probable that he will either
in a regular or special message to Congress
request such authority as will enable him
to carry out the declared Intention of Presi
dent Grant in 1875, and take steps, using
armed force if necessary, to establish a
stable and satisfactory government in
It Is shown by the archives of the State
Department that on Xo ember 5, 1870,
PresidcntGrant, having bi-comcexasperated
bcyord endurance, directed Hamilton Fish,
then Secretary of State, to prepare a
complete 'and thorough statement of the
grievances held by the United Stales
against Spain, and which would form the
basis of intervention by the former in the
affairs of the latter.
PRESIDENT GRANT'S LETTER.
This letter, couched In the most vigor
ous language, was transmittal by cable tc
Mlnlster Cushing, with the statement that
a copy of it had been forwarded to the
United States minister at every principal
European court, with Instructions to lay
It before the minister of foreign relations
of the country to which they were accred
ited and ascertain the sentiment of that
government regarding the intervention
of the United States in the affairs of Spain.
This is said to be the only instance in our
diplomatic history where a President sent
a note of this character to tbe European
In the course of this letter Secretary Fish
says that be Is directed by President Grant
to exhaustively review all the matters
of fact relating to the embargoed estates
of American citizens; that promised re
dress bad been long delayed; that the gov
ernment oT Spain was avoiding the issue;
that tbe unprovoked arrest of American
citizens continued, and that no satisfac
tion could be obtained but broken prom
ises, and continues:
"In my note of February C, 1874, I re
ferred at length to the views entertained
and the position of this Government. It
was then more than five years since an
organized Insurrection bad broken out
which the government of Spain bad been J
entirely unable to suppress. At that time
tbe firm conviction of the President was
announced that whatever efforts might
be put forth by tbe Spanish power in
Cuba, no doubt could be entertained that
tbe final Issue of the conflict would be to
break the bonds which attached Cuba as
a colony to Spain.
"While remembering and observing the
"duties which this Government, as one of
a'famlly of nations, owes to another mem
ber by public law, treaties or the par
ticular statutes of the United States, it
would be Idle to attempt to conceal tbe
Interest and sympathy with which Ameri
cans In the United States regard any at
tempt of a numerous people on this con
tinent to be relieved of ties which bold
them In a position of colonial subjec
tion to a distant power and to assume the
Independence and right of self-cnatrol
which natural rights and tbe spirit of the
age accord lo them.
TRACTICALLI' AN ULTIMATUM.
"Almost itvo jcars hae passed and no
effective steps have been taken to remedy
abuses or establish reforms, and the ef
fort lo suppress the Insurrection by force
alone has been a complete failure. In the
meantime tbe material Interests of trade,
and of commerce are Impaired In a de
gree which calls for reiconlrancc. If not
for another line of conduct on the part
of all commercial nations
"Tbe United States purchases more large
ly than any other people of the pmduc
tions of the Island of Cuba, and, therefore,
more than any other for this reason, and
ft 111 more by reasoa of lis immediate
neighborhood, is Interested In the arrest
of any wanloj destruction which dis
graces the age and affects eery coinmer
el.il people on the face of the glob"
"It liecomes a serious question how long
this condition of things cuu or should be al
lowed lo exist, and compels us to Inquire
whether the point has not lieen reached
where longer endurance ceases to be pos
tlblc. "In the opinion of tLe President, the time
has arrived when the interests-of this coun
try, the preservation of its commerce, and
tho instincts of humanity alike, demand
tliat'eome speedy and satisfactory ending
be made to the strife which is devastating
Culia. A dltastrous conflict of more than
teieu j ears' iluratlon has demonstrated the
inability of Spain to maintain peace in an
leland lying at our door. Desolation Hiid
tho destruction or life and property bale
been the only results of this conflict."
PROMPT ACTION THREATENED.
Afler giving n detailed list of those oert
acts, "which a people cannot be expected to
tolerate without the assured prospect of
their termination," and referring to the
fact that a tender of the good offices of the
United States had been declined, Secretary
"Tho Government of the United States
has heretofore given expression to no
policy In reference lo the insurrection In
Cuba, because it has honestly and sincerely
hojied that no declaration of policy on Its
part would tie required. The President
feels that longer rctiqence would be incon
sistent with tbe Interests of both govern
ments. Our relations with Spain are in
that critical position that another seizure
similar to that of tho Virglnius, other exe
cutions of citizens of the United 8lates,
other wrongs of a less objectionable char
acter, even, than many which have been
already suffered by our citizens, with slm
plo remouctrance, or possibly some act of
exceptional severity in Cuba, may sud
denly produce a feeling and ' excitement
which might force events which this
Government desires to avoid.
"Tiie President hopes that Spain may
spontaneously adopt measures looking lo
a reconciliation and to (lie speedy restora
tion of peace, and the organization of a sta
ble and satl-factory government In the
Island of Cuba. In the nbseuceof any pros
pect of a termination of the war, or of any
change in the manner in which it has lx.-en
conducted on either side, he feels that the
time Is at hand when It may lie the duty of
other governments to intervene, solely
vrlihuvlewof bringing to anendaellsastro'us
and destructive conflict, and of restoring
peace. to the Island of Cuba.
WILL RENEW GRANTS TOLICr.
"No government Is more eleeply interested
in the order and peaceful administration
of the Island than is that of UieUnlledStates,
and none has suffered as has the United
States from thecondliion which hasobtained
there during the past six or seven years.
He will, therefore, feel it his duty at an
early day to submit the subject In this
light, and accompanied by an expression
of the views above presented for the con
sideration of Congress.
"This conclusion Is jcaclied after every
other expedient has been attempted -and
proved a failure, and In the firm conviction
that the period has at last arrived when
no other course remains for this govern
ment." This cablegram of Secretary Fish is wltb
outa precedent in the diplomatic history of
this country, and Is the longest ever sent
from the State Department, containing
nearly six thousand words.
Ten days after its transmission, on No
vember 5, 1875, Secretary Fish received
a cablegram from the Spanish government
declaring that It would make every satis
factory amend, and gua ranleed there should
be no cause given for further complaint.
Then came the election of 1S7C, when
Hayes was chosen President and the finding
of the Electoral Commission threatened
to precipitate civil war, and Spain took
advantage of it to repudiate all of its
promises and even the payment of the
Mora claim, w hlch was specified by Presi
dent Grant, was delayed for twenty years
until Secretary Olney forwarded to a
representative of the Spanish govern
ment another ultimatum.
There is little doubt expressed by those
in a position to know inside facts but that
the present admislstratlon will take the
action of General Grant as a tatisfaclory
precedent and compel Spain to give the
Cuban revolutionists such recognition and
concessions as will result In tLe protection
of American citizens in that island. That
such a course will meet with the hearty
approval of the American people la a

MUOH MONEY SPENT THERE
Seventy-four TlioiiKimd UollarH Al
reiidy Squandered, iind It 1 Doubt
ful Whether Moree "Will Ever De
UMd Intention Whh to Itovlvo a
lluisliic-iot Killed by the Dams).
The largest failure probably of the United
Stales Fish Commission Is to be found In
the fishway at the grandly picturesque
Great Falls of the Potomac, fourteen miles
above Washington. The government, upon
the recommendation of tbe Fish Commission
officials, has spent $71,000 there and the
people have never profited one cent as a
result of the work.
Whether tho fishway will ever be com
pleted is very problematic. The reason
given is that there has been lack of money,
but thegentlemen In charge of the Commis
sion have found money for various other
projects begun long after the fishway.
In the last edition ot tbe British Encyclo
pedia, published over ten years ago. Dr.
Drown Uoode says of improving rivers as
habitations for fish: "Obstructions, such
as dams, may In most Instances bsovercome
by the use of fish ladders. The salmon has
profiled much by those devices in Europe,
and the immense dams in American rivers
will doubtless be passabl eeven for sbadand
alevvlves If the new system of fishway con
struction now b:lug heapplicdonthcSavan
nab, James, Potomac and other largo
rivers fulfills Its present promise of success."
That u pou the Potomac does not appear td
In the report from the commission in 1882,
the description of this new system is entered
upon quite fully and illustrations are fur-.
nisiied to show bow the work is lo be
accomplished. Tho plan Is, in its general
outline, very simple. A runway inclines!
from the top of tho dam lite a huge cellar
door lies in tho middle ot the stream. Its
surface Is divided into six channels by five
beams about a foot square. The length
of the beams Is the same as that of the
fishway or section, about forty feet.
Down Hie channels flows the water at an
anle of about fifteen degrees with the
horizon. In each channel Is a series of
obstructions turning the current back
upon Itself and by friction so retarding
the swiftness of the flow as to make It
possible for the fish to dart up the way and
gain the comparatively quiet pool above.
The old method of construction had liccn
to build a winding way 500 feet long for
a dam ten feet high. The objection was
that the fish would lose their way In tbe
windings and the work involved was too
great- It was hoped that the new system
would permit the construction of light ways
of boards which might be removed when
the fish were not running and put under
shelter to preserve them.
It was believed that by the use of these
ways the extensive fisheries for whiteshad
might be re-established, which had in
early days cmplovcd large numbers ot
persons on the streams emptjing Into the
Chesapeake. The building of dams had
destroyed the business On July IB, 1832,
Congress made an appropriation of $30,
000 for the construction of six flshways,
or six sections of a fishway, at -Great
Falls A contract was let and several parts
of the work was completed, only to be
carried away later by an overflow.
Later the wort was renewed under the
direction of the War Department, and
again It was swept away. Another ap
propriation, $24,000 this time, was se
cured, and in 1801 plans" were drawn at
the War Department and a contract was
Jet to Isaac II. Hathaway, of Philadelphia,
to build the way. In the report of the
Commissioner for 1892 he says that wort
was begun In July, 1891, and sections 4,
5 and G were completed within that year.
Subsequently two more sections were
built. The sections are numbered from the
aqueduct dam down, and al! were finished
except the upper or first, which should
carry the fish over the main dam. Abuge
wall of masonry runs out below tbe dam
showing where worK was begun. Then
operations were abandoned Was it simply
for lack of money or had confidence in the
new s j stem run short? .,
The five cections of the way or the five
fishwajs, are very solidly built and stood
there In the middle of the Potomao bed
when v lslted yesterday by a Times reporter,
a huge monumenWo somebody's mistake or
somebody's incompetency. The bushes are
beginning to reach out lo them from both
tides and the drift has collated on the
little dams that riank the largest and tno.

up tho ways already built could not be
learned. It Is certain none have evirgone
over the big dam In section 1 of the way
which Is as yet on paper in "the chief
engineer's orfice in the .War Department.
In answer to a Times' reporter's qn
tions jesterday Acting Commissioner GUI
said that l.e did not know whether the
fishwnys built according to thr.new system
on the James and on the Delawarehad been
successful .or not. No effort bad been
made to complete way at-Great Falls for
sev eral years because the appropriation had
not been sufficient. "Very little attention
had been given to it because it was not
thought lo be possible to secure the money
As to recent statements that the Commis
sion is little more than a"f eeder to the Na
tional Museum, he said no speelraens were
ever Eent to the Museum till after they had
been used by the Commission for the pur
pose for which selected. Some assistants
of the Commission were employed In the
museum. No specimens were sent to col
leges. That was wholly the work of the
Museum though, of course, material gath

"Testing tho Effect of the KruK-Jor-lieiiNOii
Chicago, Sept. 12. The killlDg of Thom
as Coffey, the deserter, at Fort Sheridan,
has revived the discussion of the effects
of the Krag-Jorgensen rifle shot.
The gun wasndopted fortheUnltcdStatci
Infantry because of Its-alleged contribu'
Hon to tho humane side of warfare. The
tremendous velocity given the nickel en
cased hall and its hard coating were said
tube an assurance of a clean cut wound.
It hat been argued that the bullet would
pierce a human body and not tear the flesh
around tlio wound, thus minimizing tbe
horrors ot war. Tho wound thus made
would quickly heal, while with the oldstyle
arm It might result in death.
The ncV:on of- the bullet was closely
noted by Ute soldiers of Fort Sbericj.
