Havana, via Key "West, June 23. The
Cuban general Chucho Montengudo has
hegun to take retaliatory measures against
the Spaniards for the outrages committed
toy their guerrilla forces in Rama Clara
province, Monteagudo, for more than three
months past, has been abking permis
Blon from Qen. Gomez to retaliate againbt
the' Spaniards, on the ground that the
policy of clemency and humanity pursued
by Gen. Gomez was met by the enemy
with the massacre of sick and wounded
prisoners in the hospitals, aud the as
sassination of prisoners of war.
( At last, Geu. Gomez sent permission
to Mouteagudo to act as he 0 united, if,
after first warning the Spaniards, they
should continue their inhuman conduct,
Monteagudo sent the warning to the
Spanish military commander at Santa
Clara, and the answer came back in
the form of a raid upon a Cuban hos
pital by the guerrilla force of the Cama
Juanl, and the murder or a tick Cuban
officer and two nurses.
Monteagudo then prepared an ambush
for the Caninjuani men at a place named
Palo Pneto, where they often went in
earch of cattle. The Spaniards fell into
the ambuscade and a hard hand-to-hand
fight ensued. One Spanlbb captain and
seventeen soldiers were killed, and thirty
five Spanish soldiers and one lieutenant
"Were captured. The rest fled in disor
der. A few minutes after the engage
ment was over Monteagudo hanged his
thirty-six prisoners on the snot.
t "11 you do not treat us ab belligerents,"
be wrote again to the Spanish commander,
at Santa Clara, ''and if you continue to
murder our prisoners, Ave will treat you as
Tliis is the beginning of a terrible retal

provoked, and which will soon extend to
all the provinces. The Spaniards are not
showing any signs of being deterred by

of America, as the same is provided for In
the treaty between the United fetateb aud
the republic of Hawaii, concluded on the
19th day of June, 1897, ib accepted, rati
fled and confirmed on the plan, terms and
conditions stated in sa d treaty, which is
herein set forth.
"On the 4th day of July, 1893, thelawsof
the United States as they shull then exist
shnll be extended over the territory of
Hawaii, but Congress may provide for
the extension of said laws over said ter
ntory at an earlier period, and until Con
giess shall provide for the permanent
government of said territory, the same
shall be governed according to the plan and
provision stated in said treaty, which is,
hereby adopt-d and enacted as a part of
this act, except Aitlcie VII.
"The five commissioners to be appointed
by this President, uuder Article VI, shall
be appointed by and with the advice aud
consent of the Senate
"There Is hereby appropriated, and to be

000. "The interest on the public debt of the
republic or Hawaii is included in the ex
penses of executing this act, but all pro
visions for paying the principal of the
debt are reserved for the future action
The treaty is made a rart of the bill.
Senator Morgan stated to a Times re
porter last night that his reason for in
troducing the bill was that such a meas
ure wav necessary and had to be introduced
"You can't annex Hawaii liy treaty
alone," lie said; "it requires legislation
to accomplish it. The bill was introduced
upon my individual suggestion; it was not
talked of in the meeting or the Committee
on Foreign Relations today.

who is chairman of the school board.
Each of the children had a bun, a glass
of rrilk, a medal, and a packet of sweeta
from the Queen. As her majesty passed
on the cheering and waving of handker

The Queen responded with bows until

A MAJESTIC PHODUCTION.
Grand Opera on a Scale Never
Equalled in Magnificence.
London, June 23. A gala performance
of opera was given tonight on a scale ut
magnificence never equaled in London.
The Covent Garden Opera House was
transrormed rrom Its usual ugliness Into
.a paradise or rose Never was such prodi
gal and effective use made of England's
beautiful national flower.
The cobt or the rosebuds-alone Tor this
decoration was $10,000, and roses are
far cheaper in London than in New York.
Upon each seat was spread a rich, white
satin program, fringed with sliver, and
bearing large portraits of the Queen at
coronation and now, and smaller pictures
of the Prince and Princess of Wales, the
Duke and Duchess of York, and Prince
It la not exaggeration to describe the
audience as the most distinguished In
point of rank and the pomp and power
represented that ever assembled under
a public roof. .There were pilncos and
princesses, aud ambassadors by the score
.Mere dukes and duchesses and ordinary
peers were almost common. Seven boxes
made into one contained the Prince of
Wales and his guests. All the great per
sonages who took part in yesterday's
procession were there, as were also mem
bers of the goernment and the other high
dignitaries of the realm. These were all
in the royal and other boxes. Col. John
Hay, the American ambassador, and one
or two other Americans occupied boxes.
Among those in the general audience
were theUtike and Duchess orMarlborough,
Baron Ferdluand de Rothschild, the Earl
or Londale, the Grand Duke Michael or
Russia. Mrs. Bradley-Martin, Mr. Henry
White, secretary of the American em
bassy; Mrs.MackayamlMrs. OgdenUoelet
The house presented a dazzling sight
at 9 o'clock "when the curtain rose- The
toilets of the women and the uniforms
of the men made a marvelous kaleido
scopic effect, which it would be foolish
to attempt to analyze. The hhne of
Jewels, the glitter of gold epaulots, the
shimmer of satin, all In that vast fragrant
framing of roses, made a scene that must
be left to the imagination of those who
were not privileged to look upon It.
The curtain went up, disclosing a splendid
stnge picturp. Tn the center, surmounting
a great pyramid of flowers and flanked
by the national colors, was a marble
hurt of the Queen, made dazzling by
reflected Ughr. MnRsed upon the stage was
the whole company, the leading artists
In front. The orchestra played "God
Save the Queen" majestically and sonor
ously, and Melba, Eames and Maclntyre
sang the Hrst verse of the anthem. Three
contraltos sang the second verse and the
entire chorus sang the remainder. Artlstlc
alb", It was, perhaps, the finest rendering
of the grand anthem ever given, but I
have heard it more eloquently sung

the height of the national anger ecalnst;

The matter was left open to a future date,
and it is now believed neither Kurtz nor
Pick will be elected.
The convention throughout the day was
harmonious and uneventful.

Indianapolis, June 23. The State Car As
sociation held its annual mcet'hg here to
day, ex-President Harrison presiding and
making a Etrong plea for a Letter Judi
ciary. Among other things he said:
It may he that in the construction of
tome of our great appellate courts, espe
cially the Supreme Court at Washington,
there are party divis'ons upon great Con
stitutional qiest,ons, such as thofe wh en
aro'.e during the war, that may fairly enter
mto the appointive power.
"Perhaps the Presiu.-m mar rightly con
sider whether the person suggested fox
a place upon the l.ench of the Suprema
Court has a right opinion upon the su
premacy of the National Government In
all national affairs, but when we come
to the lower and more sutoroinate and
more temporary matters ot politics, mat
ters that are of business expediency and
consideration, then I hold that it is un
worthy especially ot memters of the bar
to give their ballots for a man simply
because he Is ot this party or of that
party, if, in doing tor they vote for the
less worthy and the less competent man.
"Amid all those tumults and divisions,
these agitating; social conditions, these
distracting and exciting questions that
arise between capital and labor, that
agitate our people, that sway our assem
blies in the midst of these the hope of
our country is in the clean, high-minded
Judiciary, and we should contribute cvr?
effort to secure men of character for
these judicial places.
"Not only that, but the bar should stand
against- thoi vindictive, malicious and
unfounded assaults that are so often
made upon our Judges, and anything that
tends to diminish the respect or the public
tor the Judge to the public injury. If ha
Is guilty of malfeasance or misconduct
iu office; it he is corrupt, let the bar
association be his accuser, and bring
him not only to the judgment of thu
public, but to that judgment which our
"Let us set ourselves against this malg
nant, inconsiderate, unfounded Imputatm
against the impartial'ty and integrity of
our judge;. It is essential, again, that the
relations hetween the tar and the court
should he placed upon the highest level of
courtesy and mutual respect."
