Case of Shipwreck Ahead for
SPAIN'S LATEST EXPLOIT
Tliree Henunlicmi Senators Who
Will Oppose tho A
liiticm of the Cuban "Vur In
fluence to lie Exercised ou the
Douse Hot Legislative Days.
The chances Uiat the Administration will
be able to roroe its views as to the proper
settlement of the Cuban question on Con
gress are diminishing. The idea of the
Administration, gathered here and there
is that if tile insurgents do not accept an
tononiy the Administration will not et
harrass itseir further with the Cuban re
public'fi cause. t
Tlie embarrassment of the Cabinet arises
principally from tlie reason that there are
forces of its own politics arrayed against
itjn the Senate, and who have great weight
In the Ilouse. There arc three Senator
on the "Republican side who arc not in
lavor of autonomy, simply for the reason
that such a policy goes lack on the early
feeling of the Administration and because
it is against their own publicly expressed
convictions. These Senators are Messrs
Galllnger, Mason and Chandler, all of
uluii:: have a large lollo wing iu tne House.
They are In favor of recogiiUlng the bel
ligere'icy of the Cuban republic as a na
tion and after that of direct intervention
if the insurgents continue to fight ab man
fully as at present.
Senator Mason -was outspoken to The
Tinu'S a few davsago when he said that
lie iiad not changed his views, and that he
believed the House -would act favorably, if
not repressed by Speaker Reed. Senator
Chandler thinks that Intervention will be
necessary, and Senator Galllnger is the
champion on tlie Republican sid' of ab-
: solute freedom. On the Democratic side
Senator Morgan leads the forces, and with
all the jt'M'r pro-Cuban Senators will
I throw their wight toward prompt action
I by the House.
I The Administration, by some iudiscrsit
ptiMlcafyns, has lost even the glory of
I the release of the Competitor prisoners.
It lias been stated that the release of the
prisoners was a master-stroke ol Spanlsn
diplomacy, executed by the wily Dupuy
de Lome. The expected effect of this
stroke i to allow Spain more time for the
war. 1- is possibly the desire to permit
Spain to protract the war that has led to
the utterances of Republican Seuatots
that intervention is the thing.
Fioiu whatevei point of view the present
situation is regarded it presents trouble
ahead Tor the Administration. This will
not be decreased when the correspondence
ou recent diplomacy is called for by
House and Senate.
The bulletin slip of tho State Depart
nieat j csterday contained a list of AuutIi,hi
prltonersin Cula who 'liave been released
since Match 4, 1897."
'lhe obtrubive idea iu this deliverance
or the State Department is thatthe miracles
have al! been performed since the advent
of the present political regime. Thee is
n mention in tlds amusing record of the
exploits in the Senate of Senator Hale and
Senator Spooner, both of whom wept biUe:
ly inwardly when . vote was forced ou
the Senate on the granting of lieltigorent
rights to the Culvuis. Nor Is there any
ziitxtuiu of the perulsteut headword of

was asleep, as there was no evidence ar
a struggle. The blood had soaked through
tin- clothing and, dried on tlie floor.
Without losing any time the officer
v.ud to the backyard, secured Smith, and
placed him under arrest, while he "sent to
the station for a patrol wagou. With it
canfe Policeman Mansfield, Detective Harti
gau and MorguemasterSchoenbergor.wno,
notwithstanding the decayed condition of
th- body, made a careful examination ot
io, and it -vviis removed to the morgue
The woman was dressed only in her night
clothes, and there were no other evidences
of violence upon her body.
Smith was very drunk, but as he gral'ial
ly sobered up Detective Hortjgau talked
vvltl. him, and drew from him a partial
couVHiion and statements which will be
yond a doubt convict him of the horrible
crime. To others Smith declined to talk.
A str.iuge feature of the affair is the .'act
that the house at Ko. 124 Madison alley
.wa on fire last Tuesday, but the jla.e
was extinguished by a clerk Iu Banes' drug
store, at Second and F streets, and several
others, and the room iu which the woman's
dead body lay was not entered. Tlie
police now believe that Smith set tiro to
th place in order to burn it and conceal
hW crime. They have secured evidence
which will tend to prove it.
Corouer Carr will hold an inquest over
the remains of the woman at 2 o'clock
this afternoon, and Dr. Glazebrook will
prior to that time perform an autopsy
upon the body.

The reclamation of the Anacostia riats in
a similar manner Is strongly urged, and
wil 1 be greatly in thu Interested the general
heulthrulness. But a third cause of un
heal thtalness will remain until the plan
of sewage disposal, so ably prepared by
the commission convened by Congress in
189 and set rorth in their report, shall
have been completely carried out. At
present tne sewage is emptied into the
Potomac and Auacostia rivers immediately
along the water front of the city and Is
earned back and forth by the tides, a

THE GAHBAGE CONTRACT.
tVnrfleld, Al for Payment
Dr. Woodward's Report.
Oirbagc Contractor Garfield has written
to the Commissioners complaining that pay
for hi" work is withheld from him and re
questing a settlement. His letter was re
ferred U- ihc health office, and Dr. "Wood
ward yesterda; submitted a report on the
subject. He says that the general intent
ot the contract has been complied with,
although Mr. Varfield failed in several
ways of carrying it out to the letter.
He criticise." the juethods of transporting
part of the garr-ago down the river now
employed by the contractor In lieu of
cremating it. In the absence of a second
crematory this method is lairly satlsfac
lory, he says, but the open scows now
med should be given up and metal tanks
employed. He recommends that tne full
contract price be paid for the time since
October 12, less the amount of fines im
posed. As to the future, he recommends
that two-thirds of the full amount provided
by the contract bo paid for collection, and
"that in vtew of the cost to the District
tor transporting garbage and dead animals
down the river undar the prior contract.
I payment for the disposal of garbage and
dead animals under the present contract
be upon the basis of $9,000 per annum,
the increase over the amount paid tinder
the prior contract' being sufficient to pro
vide for the increase in the amount of
garbage disposed of, and to pay for the
services of the weigher." .
