J.MILTON TOUNG, Cashier.
Through the columns of The Times Senor
Gonzales de Quesada, the hcadcenter of tlie
Cabnn revolutionary party In the United
States, thanks the people of Washington
for the inter est tbey ha ve shown in thecause
or tlie struggling republic. Senor Quesada
through tlie same medium also enlightens
the public as to the strength of the Insur
gent forces, leaving it to calculation and
Inference what output of wen and'money
.Spain must make In the attempt to sub
jugate the island.
Senor Quesada docs not adduce Tacts
and ftgures furnished by himself -or ether
leaders of the revolutionists. On the con
trary, he gives those found In the columns
of one or the leading newspapers of Spain.
Tiiut paper shows that tlie insurgents have
forty thousand men in thefielO. It will be
seen tLat if belligerent rights are granted
Cuba by lhe"UaltedStates,asUicysoonwin
be. and the insurgents can liny ships nnd
arms and ammunition. Spa 1 mvill have need
of more than the sixty thousand men that
a re to be sent to Ca pt. Gen. Campos in order
to put that rebellion down. Asa matterof
ract, it -would become a war of resirtenee
to the last man, on the one side, and of
aanilulalion on tlie other, and even the
possibility of such a contingency the people
of tills country will refuse to contemplate.
The same Spanish paper from -which
Senor Quesada quotes, gives an Inkling
or the financial burdens Imposed upon
Cubans by the home government, and they
'are burdens, by the way, from which Cuba
derives not a particle oflienent, either di
rectly or indirectly. Cuba lias to pay an
nually 2,220,000 ror the luxury of
having a royal ramily and court several J
thousand miles away, and it has even to
contribute 100,000 to the funds Teqnired
is piling up an enormous -war debt or which
Cuba, in case the' insurrection falls. -will
have to bear her share, and thus she faces
a prospect in tlio event order eat, or being
rrutdiedundera load -which allber resources
will fail tcTltghtcn.
The picture drawn by Senor Quesada
Is enough to rouse every liberty-Joving
American to the active -support or the
rallant islanders, and "Wasiiingtonlans will
tpeak with no uncertain voice at the great
Diass meeting, -which tlie Cuban leader
Dlruscir will address.
HAII.HOADS IN THE DISTRICT.
The meeting called by the Board of Trade
for Fridaj night for tbe discussion "of tbe
railroad question in tbe District of Colum
bia. Is of more than usual Interest and Im
portance. Up to the present time the rail
road companies having termini here have
done nnd lert undone pretty much how and
what the plcaecd,and it Is high time that
the people of tbe "District .should exert
themselves to see ir these corporations
cannot be subjected to tbe same governing
posrers that control other matters. Of

which the District staggers along makes
It Impossible for the people to help them
selves, and tbelr relief must come through
Congress. Fast experience has been that
a fight in Congress against railroad cor
porations by the people of the District has
been generally a losing one for the latter,
but that should be all tbe mure reason
for making further stronger and more
persistent efforts to achieve what is Just
Or all tbe topic3 to be discussed at this
meeting thnt which deals cith grade cross
ings is by Jar tbe most important, for it
concerns the safety of life and limb.
Tbe call Issued for the meeting la jn special
emphasis upon this point. Either above
or below grade tbe roads should enter the
city and pass through its streets, and so
long as tbey run on grade they ought to be
compelled by legislative enactment to
station watchmen and flagmen at every
street crossing Tbe bloody record of the
lia'tlmorc and Ohio Road in this respect
stands out in bold relief not only ns a warn
ing, but as an accuser or a corporation-that
cares ror nothing except dollars, and to
whom tbe lives of the people or the city
whose rrancbh.es i t enjo ys are of no concern
The encouragement or manufactures Is
another subject or vital importance to the
District. It has been repeatedly pointed
out by Tbe Times that "Washington's man
ufacturing opportunities have never been
fully exploited, and that great possibilities
lie dormant in the lap of theruture. Every
business man, every real estate owner in
tbe District is interested In this, for tbe
establishment or more manufactures and
the utilization of tbe magnificent power
of the Great Falls Tor that purpose cannot

Another matter to be considered is the
Baltimore and Ohio depot, or the shed,
which forack of another more convenient
term Is dignified by that name. It Is evi
dence of tbe parsimony of tills corporation
nnd is a disgrace to the city. Altogclbe?
the meeting at the Board or Trade rooms
Friday night Is so full or live interest that
there abouM be a great outpouring of the
people of the District.
THE VyOKKLVGMEX'S LIimAHY.
It is extremely gratifying that the Work
ingmen's Library bids fair to be a speedy
and decided success. Those having the
matter in charge are proceeding conserva
tively jet energetically and they hate
such assurances of assistance as to place
tlie future of the undertaking upon a rea
sonably safe rooting. This library may be
made of real service to those for -whose
special benefit it is called Into existence,
for It should be the means not only of
diversion and intellectual entertainment
flm-int; leisure hours, but an active aid
to the development of its members in their
It would be a great pity if the shelves
of the new library -wcro to be weighted
down with what goes by the general desig
nation of light literature. This, too, or
course, has Its proper place and Importance
In the general scheme or readirg, but its
valac is only secondary arterall. In the
catalogue of the Worklngmcn's Library
ought to be found the English classics,
historical works, writings upon sociologi
cal topics and Ufosc of specialists in the
variouB mechanical trades. and professions
whereby its beneficiaries earn their liv
ing. There is little doubt that the library
once established, -will be tlie recipient
of many a donation, and it is to be hoped
that tlie donors will bear in mind the
special as well as the general purpose it
13 intended to sultecrve.
Another suggestion maynol bcoutof place
right here. In many States and cities a
day lias been set apart which Las come to be
known as Library Day. On that day each
friend or the library donate a book, and
in tlie case or the 'ATorklngmcn's Library
this scheme could be carried out to great
advantage. All labor organizations, for
instance, might make provisions for adding
to thclibrary on that day and their example
would be followed, no doubt, by others.

Tliey Do Kot Believe "England Sent
Vfneznejn, an Ultimatum.
Diplomatic circles are growing mne
w hat kepUcal respecting the correctness r
the London dit patches whichaimounee that
an ultimatum Lab been sent lay Lord
Saluuury to Venezuela, and it is btlieved
that tbcte dispatches axe misleading, if
they are not, in fact, tmewhat exagger
ated. It is rointrd out that an ultimatum is
hevcr tlie initial but a inbsequcnt step
taken in international dltputes. It is
ihonn, in the case in point, that although
the arrest or the colonial officers afUruan
occurred In "November lait, no official cog
nizance of the matter wat taken by Great
Britain until recently.
Under theie circunistancta the proba
bility of an ultimatum being luildcnly
tprung is seriously doubled. It is not
qucttloned that Lord Salisbury has sent a
communication to the Caracas gvcrnmenU
directing their attention to the arret t of
Sergt Bclircni. and asking for a suitable
explanation If Venezuela's explanation
thould not be satisfactory, then. It is 1 aid,
Great Britain, might with propriety, -respond
-with an ultimatum.

body jestcrday morning, artcrnoon aud
At the night meeting there was a remark
ably large crowd as was untlclpafd rrotn
tlie fact tliat tbe topic In chief ror discus
sion was the vitally important one or "Our
Young People." Very appropriatelj , too,
the chairman or tbe meeting was a -woman,
and one who is well known for her ability
and knowledge of the subject'to be dis
cussed, Mrs.-Ed ward A. Horton, of Boston.
Among the- speakers were Rev. Ida C.

COMBINING THE SOCIETIES.
The subject for the evening came on
very appropriately after the afternoon
session, which was devoted to tlie ques
tion of rormlng a national organization
or young Unitarians, ror Uie prosecution
ur the work or stir-devclopraenl. and re
ligious character. This meeting was hi id
at 2.30 p. m.
Mr. G. W. Stone presided. A stntement
covering what had already been done in
tills direction was made by the Rev. C. R.
Eliot, of BoAlon. to which were added
statements from J. W. Pprague, Mr. Van
Ness, 0. W. Cooke and E. A. Hortun. The
discussion covered the action by committees
of til.- Guild Aillnnoo and Unity Clubs
looking to consolidation.
The following statement or the situation
"We liellevc that the time has come
Tor some forward movement in the direc
tion ot organizing nur Unitariau young
people. We be'lieve that :w life may be
Infused into eiWlng organizations nnd
many new young ieople societies formed
ir the denomination as a whole will
unite in such a purpose.
"We believe that tbe work done hitherto
by our Uuit Club. Guilds or other young
people societies, has been most admirable-.
It isbecause or this good work
thut we think the hour has come Tor
closer union and a united Torwnrd move.
EXAMPLES UEFOttE THEM.
We heartily believe that the renter about
which our young iK-eple wish to rally Is
the religious motive and we sec evidences
or this not only in the success ir such
bodies In the Christian Endeavor Society,
but In our own gul'dt, which have always
centralized their eiforts upon tbe religious
We believe, tbcrcforcthat whatever for

We therefore concur in the proposition
to be made as we understand by thuse in
cbargeof tbe meeting, vie Tbata national
organization of Voung People's Societies
be formed, to be called "Tb" Young Peo
ple's Unitarian Union," an alliance of head,
heart and hand.
Tbe cardinal principles of the union were
set forth as truth, service and righteous
ness, and the object of the union "to
strengthen the young peeiple or the Uni
tarian denomination, in order that they
may do more and better workior tbe king
dom of God."
The plan of uniun -was prepared by the
Rev. Mr. Van Nes, and imluded a. decla
ration ot what duties were involved in
the cardinal principles.
ACTION jtESOLVED UPON.
After a full elise-usslon of tbe proposition
tlie following was adopted:
'Resolved. That the plan presented by
Mr. Yon Ness nnd ttic inemuerNOf the Joint
committee appeal to the representatives
of erar e-hurclws. gullds.and other organiza

"Resolved, That we adipt it as a plan
of aetlon, and that, while the committee
to -whom this is referred Is eonsidering the
-ultimate plan ot organization, we return to
our Tari'ns fields ana no -wnar we can to

.An International complication, which
may le of greater importance to Great
Britain than hl-r dlijiute- with A'cm-zuehi.
It Is said here, is iikily jo rolkiw the
declaration that Her Majeity govern
ment -Bill not itlinquiih possession or the

Great Britalu is reported to have arrived
at a derlsloft that she will adhere to her
claim. No CiKher Inrormatlon regarding
the matter e-nn lie learned here. The Bra
zilian minister. Senor Mendune-a, politely,
bat rirmly, deUlncd last night to discuss
it. He said he1 had no information with
reference to Great Britain's action, and
refused to discuss its effect, either in its
relation to Brazil or to this country.
There is, however, presumptive proof
tbnt the report is trae. and ir this be so
Great Britain' action will create a greater
cvi-itement la Brazil than has existed there
Tor years. ", "
There Is the strongest documentary cri
donee that Brazil's claim to Trinidad is
unassailable. It was discovered by tbe
Portuguese as rar lack ns 1540 and later,
when Portugal acknowledged the inde
pendence or Brazil, It .rell into the posses
sion or the latter-country.
England has several times since prac
tically pcknowledged Portugal's control
or the ltland. and her seizure or the terri
tory at this late day, will, it is believed,
arouse the deepest indignation or the Bra
zilians. Should any difficulty now arise between
the two countries. It Is not thought that
the United Stales will become involved.
Brazil, it is lielieved, is competent to man
age her own affairs without th assistance
of this country.

first time honestly enforced? When we
have better men in national politics we
will return to the good old Cays of Abraham
Lincoln. "We want the good old times
