absentees took the position that the

after the Supreme Court's iieliveranee

The A istant IK iikmTiIs of the Van
YalUeiiU rg rsiiasion are bilsily ell
gaged in sending out proclamations and
self-constructed interviews declaring
that the kepublicau Senatorial caucus
was not biuditig iiecauNe Ufty Ilepubli
cans or so were not in tyuipathy w ith
it. That is all nonsense, and the argu
ment w as devised in order to ease the
c.jnscieuees of men who, like David
Martin, are in need of some excuse for
breaking their faith.
The caucus was entirely regular in
e very wav. It ha-) been the custom for
j years for Senators and Representatives
ovgani. ttlon of the Legislature for the
p-irMt.sc of selecting legislative elli
. ils. The presiding oflhvrs of the two
caucuses always unite in calling the
Senatorial caucus, and that caucus is
h ! J on the night of organization day.
1'recedeii: and Republican customs and
rules weie followed to the letter, and
the caucus which unanimously nomin
ated Sen itor tj lay was regular to tho
very slightest detail. It is iiiiprwslble
to assail the emeus, and it will not ba
wise to attempt to do so. Let those
w ho persist hi declining to recognize
the result be manly enough to confess
that they are acting independently and
entirely outside of the lines of the
party which elected them. Let them
ci'ifss that Hip' do not believe in ma
j rity role. It is their privilege to do
as they please, only let them be honest
ahfUt it and not hypocritically claim
ulleiiiance to a party w hose principles
! they are try i"g to overthrow.
::e ef the great principles upon
which the U puhlitMii pirty is founded
is that the vole- of tiie majority shall
be rep( c'.ed. The Senatorial fight w as
made before the people. Senator Quay
w as an avow ed ci'idid.ite. He was op
tuned by Mr. Wana-naker an 1 the lat
ter's satellites, w ho set up fusion candi
dates and tried to elect an anti Quay
Legislature. The failure was complete.
The Republicans of rennsylvania elect
ed a large majority in favor of Quay.
Now that the election is over, the It--publicHti
minority refuses to reeognie

claim is apparent, so let us hear no

Al?A8SlH OF TCt HUMS Val
FifwoB Sinatet After th leitraetioa ef
th Teiiel Brrtmei It Said to Hara
Gloated Over the Deed.
Havan a, Jan. 7. For the past week
the newly launched ultra-Cuban paper,
Kl Keooneentrado,' haa made repeated
reference to the part allegad to hav been
taken in tbe blowing" up the Main by
Zacnrlan Frrxmes. Tbe e1ltor of "El
Keeoiicenl rndo," P.i.aid.i Arnauto, M
f..r many yeais a major in the SpauiaU
army, but aliout a year ago became a
rabid insurgent and was violently hostile
to lire rmes. The full story of the Maine
plot appeared to day, and folljwa:
"It is know n thai, the iilustiious Gen
eral Lee, a great friend of Cut, asked
his Nation to send a war ship to Havana
u protect the lives and property of Amer
ican citizens against a possible attack of
those vandals w ho had already given a
sign of their bad intention when they
pretended to attack the American con
sulate, believing that Mr. Lee bad there
hidden Mr. Arnauto, the editor of this
paper, tbe cause of tbe fury of these bar
barians. As soon as the new spread
among thoin that an American cruiser
w as coming to impose respect to humani
ty, they liecame still more excited.
"The Maine, tbo vessel designated ty
the American Government to come to
Havana, was delayed a few days before
coming to this port, although for several
days sho was at Key West ready to start
at any moment. General Itlaneo under
stood the gravity of the -ase aud did all
in his power to keep the vessel from com
ing. 'These delay were sufficient to give
time to General Weyler to w rite to Ha
vana the famous letter In which, with
great perfidy, he demonstrated to his
partisans that the presence of the Maine
in the bay of Havana was a great insult
to the patriotic sentiment of the Span
iards, and that it was necessary that
th ire should be Spanish han lsnunl;ient-
lv strong to chastise ucb an oflense to
the Spauish honor. Woylsr wired some
thing very ignilknt. The butcher said
that if he were in the palace oftheeap
Uin general at Havana the Maine would
not remain long in tbe harbor.
"Honore Laiue, the noted correspond
ent of the New York Journal, was the
one who discovered the Weyler letter
By him it w as discovered that the letter
ha I been received by that wretch and
politician, Santos Guzman. By biin it
was also shown that Weyler had sent
to Seoiora Kva Caiel an nrg-mt order that
tbe letter received by Santos Guzman
should be destroyed. All this was after
"Il is certain that Weyler sent tlso
particular instructions in regard to the
condition of the bay of Havana, .acarias
Rrezmes was the chief of a gang of irre
coneilables, who met every night at the
Cafe Tacon. Itre.mes had been a ser
geant in the Spanish army, and in tbe
last Cuban war had served unoer Wey
ler, tbeii a colonel, as his private secre
tary. "When Weyler returned to Cuba Bre'.
mes was one of his old acquaintances who
were first to greet him. rtrezmes had
a strong inlluence with Weyler, and it
was due to this that he was able to make
money in tbe diys of t'ue butcher. It
was Weyler who appointed Rrezmes
colonel of tlie firemen's corps. Iirezmes
was president of the ultra-Spanish com
mittee of the district of San Juan doltios,
and for this and other reasons was very
intimate with Santos Guzman. Tlie riots
of the month of January, in which Brez
mes took a prominent part, give hiui the
reputation among the ultra Spaniards of
lining a m in of a tion. When Santos
' Jiizoi tn received Weyler's letter he im
nii diately sent lor Itrezmes.
",5re. ues held an important conft ranee
with Santos Guzman in the home of
S.-gnndo Garcia Tunon, in Muralla street
At this interview there were present
Garcia Tuuon and Nicanor Campo, and
the notary of the court cathedral, Zaea
rias. Iirezmes, alter this interview,
went to the arsenal. He was a friend of
Rodrigo ijoesada, a high officer of the
Spanish navy, whom he met there by ap
pointment, "Something very serious must have
passed between Brez-nes and Q lesada, as
several Cohan workmen in the arsenal
heard iuesada say indignantly to Brez
mes: lo not propose this to any gentle
man. It is an infamy that only persons
like yon, who would end by making
Spain sink forever, are capable of con
"Brezmes left the arsenal in a hurry
w hen he found he had made a mistake
with 'iesada. uesaJa believed then
that it was a ridiculous plot that would
never be put into effect. He give it no
importance then, but when tbe Maine
was blown up, iiesada, lifting his eyes
to heaven, exclaimed: 'Wretches, you
have lost Spain !'
"Itrezmes did not give np because he
found at first a worthy Spanish o!Hc9r.
How agitated he was in the following
davs! He did not once come to court in
which wis ihe notary, Juan Sureda, and
Alberto Santana surprised him in a state
of iutoxicatiou distributing printed proc
lamations in a corner of tbe Cafe Tacan.
Santana was able to get one of tbeso
proclamations, in which the Spaniards
were advised to blow up tbe Maine.
"That night, while Brez-.nes was de
liriously drunk and accompanied by Cap
taiu PiJro Calvo, Dynoniso Vega, Phil
ippe Gonziles, a navy officer called Del -gado,
and four other Spanish ofi ;ers, he
n beard shouting at thr top of his voice:
'The Maine will g up to tin skies in a
thousand piecas, ami Hivana will hive
fresh American pork for a long time.'
Thin was heard by three witnesses, Sau
tana.Sured, Luis Cavada and a Spaniard
filled Gomes, w h i toslay are williug to
assert the fac'.
"On the very same day the Maine was
blown up Itrezmes went to the cmrt
cathedral to sijn som d tcaments. He
had a sinister expression when he said,
and his words were notel by a man who
had often heard him say the Maine would
be blown up: 'We must take cars of
our stomachs to-night, ai it is a festival
in which we are going to have roast
"At las', the frequent prophecies of
Rrezmes were fulfilled in the port at Ha
vana, an 1 15 minutes after tbe horrible
catastrophe Brez.ns, with a smiling face,
arrived in a cab at the Cafe Taetu'ac
compauirtd by Captain PeJro Calvo, and
there opened champagne, while he talked
jokingly of the sa l ovvirr!nea. We have
won" he said, 'our first naval battle.

The correspondence accompanying the

bant, French charge d'affaires at Wesh
ingtou, protesting against the continuance
of the operation of tbe Insurgents in the
Philippines, which he assumed was with
tbe consent of the Americ .n command
ers, and suggesting that tbe Spanish
troops captured at Manila be allowed to
fight tbe Fillipinos. Consul Williams.at
Manila, before the outbreak of war, re
ported most horrible outrages by the
S;".iiards upon the Fillipinos. He de
clared that 5 per cent, of the latter were
loyal to Spaiu.
All the statements made by General
Merrill before the American commission
at Paris appear in the document In sub
stance, 1 e said the insurgents would fight
if the attempt was made to surrender
Luzon to Spain. sked whether the in
surgents were capabe of government, he
replied that it would take time; they
would have to lie educated np to it. Sen
ator Frye asked if the natives would en
list under tbe American Hag and if
Aguinaldo could be given a command.
He renlied in the affirmative to both
questions, and said that Maj. Bell's re
port showed that the insurgents had 3V

City Treasurer Killed.
New Castle, Jan. & John Blevios,
city treasurer of New Castle, was found
shortly after 12 o'clock this morning in
his office, unconscious and dying. His
bead had lieen beaten to a jelly, tbe safe
broken open and perhaps JU0 in money
stolen. Last evening Blevins went to his
tailor for a new suit of clothes. Tbe gar
ments were not ready and he went to his
oftii-e, whieb is over tbe jail, to wait until
his tailor had finished. When at mid
night Le had not returned home, his son
wei't to his office. He found bis father
lying on the fbior unconscious in a pool
of hl-iod. He died soon afterward The
robbers and murderers have left no clue
to their identity. The prisoners in the jail
said tbey heard a sound as of something
failing about 9 o'clock, and that was about
the time Blevins went to his office.
Tbe city council and county commis
sioners met this afternoon, and each body
offered $2 OoO. making a total of gl.UH), for
tbe arrest aud conviction of Mr. Blevins
murderers. The police are wholly at sea
regarding the crime, and so far as can he
learned tbey are entirely without a clew
regarding the perpetrators of the awful
deed. It is now certain that the murder
occurred about 10:15 last night, although
the crime was not discovered until after
midnight. The police are of the opinion
that tbe crime was committed by some
one who was well acquainted with the of
fice, and with whom the dead man was
also well acquainted.
Outwitted Poor Overseers.
Milfokd, January ".An aged woman,
long pist the three-). e and-ten mark,
has just beeu sold at auction by the
Overseers of Ibe Poor of Iackawaxen
township. Pike county, to the lowest
bidder. This course was taken in pur
suance of a barbarous custom which Las
dominate! that township from tiiua im
memorial. The lady put on the block was M:s
f'.lmira Quick, 73 years of age. who bas
been a life long resident of Lsckawaxen.
It has been customary for tbe Overseers
to sell the poor of tbe township to the
lowest bidder each year, in preference to
being annoye 1 with tbeir ore themselves
Tbe successful bidders, in addition
to receiving a few dollars a week, man
age to get much work Out of tbe unfortu
nates who are soli for "keep" Mrs.
Quick has long been subjected to such
drudgery, it is stated, and whin tbe bid
ders assembled at Warren Rutou's hotel,
at Rowland Station, to secure a birgain,
Mrs. ( .lick had thought of a novel scheme
and determined to thwart the efforts of
bidders and audioners. Two of t' e lat
ter were ex-CountytCommisio-iers Ira
Rosencranz and Warren Ruton. Tbey
are also tbe Poor Masters. Tbey took tbe
floor and announced in bold language
that a woman was to be "sold to th e low
est bidder for keep for the ysar." The
room was crowded and many outside
eagerly clamored for admittance to the
The bidding started a. (I per week and
was very spirited. The auctioners were
about to "knock down" tbe woman at f'. O
per week for board, clothing, too lieu at
tendance, etc., when Mrs.(j'iick, who had
been a silent listener to the proceeding,
rose to her feet and in solemn tones spoke
"Thanks; I will bid 95 per month. I
can keep myself ou that amount."
This proceeding was wholly unantici
paled, but as uo one seemed willing to go
lower the Overseers saw no alternative
but to sell Mrs. Q lick to herself. Mri
Quick is a widow and has three sons an d
a daughter, bat no one seem willing to
provide for her.
