CHANGES II THE HIT
Secretary Sherman Not Likely
WILL NOT DISCUSS REPORT
Close Friends Say He Hus No Such
Intention The President Trynu
to Persuade Mr. Gary to Give Up
- His Senatorial Aspiration Judge
" ,Diiy My Succeed Mr. McKenun.
Several more or less interesting but not
new rumors regarding changes in the Cab-
iuet have been sprung upon un unsuspect
ing public recently. Among them is the
statement that Secretary Sherman is to
retire from tin; leadership of the .State
Air. Sherman positively declines to dis
cuss the subject. He said last evening
that, it the newspapers round it to their
liking to print that sort of thing as news,
they -ivould not call fortli from him any
word ot denial or affirmation.
There are good grounds for believing
there is little truth in the rumor, and for
various reasons. Had Secretary Siiennan
any intention of retiring soon fiom public
life he would not have left the Senate
until the expiration of his term, which
-would have been in 1899. A brief Cabi
net service had no charm, for him. That
he would have been re-elected !y a
Republican legislature if lie desired it there
can be no doubt. He left the Senate only
at the personal and urgent solicitation
of the President, and then only after a
long consideration of the requast.
Even were Mr. Sherman willing to leave
the Cabinet now, it would be good politics
lor the President to persuade him to re
xnalu. Nothing could make the country
believe that he had not been requested to
resign, and disruption would follow in
Ohio between the McKinley and Sherman
followers, who are now united under
Haunu's banner, fighting Foruker. One
of the men closest in Washington to
Secretary Sherman said last night that

The probable transfer of Sir. Gary from
the PoMorfice Department to the Senate
creates a possible vacancy in that posi
tion. It is understood, though, that the
President is endeavoring to dissuade Mr.
Gary from his Senatorial .aspirations. The
President is friendly to Judge McComas,
of the District supreme court, and if Mr.
Gary is not a candidate the influence or

Coitias. The judge is not unwilling. His

CUBA'S NEW GOVERNMENT
Ail Orderly Election With Very
President Mnsso Chosen by u Large
Majorit3- The Strength of Cuba
Demonstrated Very Clearly.
Havana, Nov. 20, via Key West.Nov. 21.
The new government of the republic of
Cuba has been constituted as follows:
President Bartolomc Masso.
Vice president Domingo Mendez Capote.
Secretary of war Aleman.
Secretary or finance Fonts Sterling.
Secretary of foreign affairs -Moreno de
Secretary of Interior De Sula.
The election was held at Guaymatlllo,
Puerto Principe, on November 4, and the
representatives or all the six states into
which the Islaud is divided were present.
The official news was delayed in reaching
here because it was sent by a special
agent, who had to cross the Spanish
Hues at the Jucaro-Moron trocha, and to
be escorted by Cuban troops through the
provinces of Puerto Principe, Santa Clara,
llalauzas and Havana.
Tne election was orderly, and Masso
triumphed by alarge majority. Gen. Calixto
Garcia, Salvador Clsneros Betaucourt and
Domingo Mendez Capota also received votes
for the presidency. The election, so
safely and peacefully made by deputies from
all over the island, is an evidence ol the
strength of the revolution, and the news
lias produced a grea t sensation among the
Spaniards in Havana .
The large sugar plantation, Portugaletc,
owned by Senor Manuel Culva.a leader of
the uncompromising Spaniards, was burned
yesterday by the insurgents. Portugalete
is only a few miles from Havana city. All
the sugar cane in the fields was destroyed.
4 The same fate has overtaken the sugar
estates Carmen, of Fernandez de Castro,
Providencia, near Guines, and all the cane
fields near Batabanco, San Felipe and
Hulvican, in this province. The estate
Julia Duran, belonging to the Casus family,
was destroyed and the sugar-cane burned.
Gen. Gomez, in issuing orders for their
destruction, said that it was his' answer
to Gen. Blanco's proclamation allowing
the grinding of sugar this year and en
couraging it, in order to increase the
revenues of Spain. Not a single estate,
says Gen. Gomez, will be allowed to grind
unless it pays a heavy tax to the revu

lEW ARBITRATION TREATY

A Badly Emasculated Edition of thi
Fiiuiicefotc-Olney Treaty .See ro
tary SMiTinnn iiiul Sir Julian Still
Working on I lie Document Pernm
neiit Court of Arbitration.
London, Nov. 21. The Chronicle will
tomorrow print the following from its
Washington correspondent respecting the
proposed arbitration treaty between Gre.it
.Britain and America:
Washington, Nov. 21. The new treaty
of arbitration between Great Britain and
America, which Sir Julian Pauncefotu,
the British ambassador, and Secretary
Sherman are now working on, will prob
ably be submitted to the Senate shortly
after the convening or Congress. It will
be a badly emasculated edition ot the
Pauncefote-Olney treaty and valuable only
as recognizing the general plan of arbi
tration, and, perhaps, as tending to allay
excitement in case tne reluiions between
the two countries become strained.
By express stipulation all questions al
fecting the national lienor, national in
tegrity or vital political interests of either
country are not subject to arbitration.
By Uiephrase"uaUonal integrity" is meant
an questions relating to national domain
or territorial rights, so that the Alabkuu
boundary dispute could not be arbitrated
under the general treaty.
The phrase "vital political interests" re
fers to the Monroe doctrine. Secretary
Sherman aud certain members of the
Senate would like to have had the Monroe
doctrine specifically mentioned by name
and forever excluded as a bubject of ar
bitration. To this, however. Lord Salis
bury would not consent, holding that the
phrase "vital political interests" Was suf
ficient to cover that as well as other politi
cal questions which the United States
properly refuses to submit to a court of
No permanent court or arbitration Is
provided for. Kach tribunal Is to be ap
pointed as the emergency arises- No pro
vihlou is to be made either as to the selec
tion of arbiters, except by the choice of
each government. The Senate is to de
cide and vote whether the question at
issue bhall be referred to arbitration for
settlement. Practically the treaty is
simply permissive, In enabling either of
the governments of the two countries to.
suggest arbitration in case ordinary dip
lomatic methods fall to settle a dispute.
The Senate is vested with the final dis
position or the matter In all cases.
These restrictions, which destroy the
value of the treaty except in a very litn
Ited way, had to be made to enable the
treaty to run the gauntlet or the Senate.
Even in its present emasculated form, it
will meet considerable opposition in that
PROTECTION FOR TI2E SEALS.
Expert Miu'oiui Tulk of Some Points
Ottawa, Out., Nov. 21. -James Macoun,
the Canadian sealing expert, who at
tended the eal conference at Washington.
lias returned here.
He said the most important points agreed
upon, from a Canadian pointof view, were
that the execns of reunites in the pelagic
catch is due to the killing or males on the
Mauds; that the pelagic scalers .desire to
obey the laws; that there is now a ten
dency toward neither increase nordecrease
in tlie number or the seals, aud rinally, that
so long as the haunts or the seals on land
are protected and the protected zone at
sea is maintained, the seals are in no
danger or actual extermination.
Mr. Macoun thinks the most important
of these points Is that admitting that
there has been no willful violation of
the law on the part of the peiaglc sealers.
As a matter of fact, lie say. , they have,
according to the finding ot" the delegates
to the conference, complied with the limita
tions of the law.
It had never been denied by Canada
that pelagic scaling was one of the causes
of the decrease in the number of seals,
but it was contended that they were in
no danger of being exterminated, and to
this view the delegates agreed.
EVENING TELEGRAM SUSPENDS.
A New York Paper Succumbs
New York, Nov. 21. The Evening Tele
gram, the afternoon adjunct of the Herald,
suspended publication yesterday. It was
a member of the Associated Press. The
Herald, in announcing today the suspension
of the Telegram, indulges in a rather
sarcastic reference to penny papers, de
claring that penny papers do not pay.
This statement can, in truth, be made
in respect to the Telegram only, as the
other evening papers seem to have en
joyed the full measure of prosperity their
enterprises warranted. From the "erratic
aud disappointed tone of the announce
ment, it is suspected that it was prompted
by Mr. James Gordon Bennett. At least, it
reads very much like numerous startling
and remarkable statements in reference
to news gathering and newspaper policy
that have appeared in the Herald within
the last few months.
SOUDANESE MUT1NEEHS FIGHT.
Kill Sixteen British Soldiers and
Wound Thirty Others.
Zanzibar, Nov. 21. News has readied
here of a disaster that has befallen a Brit
ish expedition that was hound for the
Usoga district, which borders on the north
ern part of VictoriaNyanza. The expedi
tion was under the command of Major
MacDonald and Mr. Jackson, a civilian,
and attached to it were a large number
of Soudanese mercenaries.
As the party moved into the Interior
discontent developed among the Soudanese,
and, on October 13, the trouble culminated
in open mutiny on their part. Tlie British
attempted to enforce their orders, and a
fight resulted which lasted for hours.
Tne mutineers were eventually defeated,
with a loss of 100 killed and wounded.
Tlie British lost 16 killed, including Lieut.
Fielding, and 30 wounded. Among the
latter arc Mr. Jackson and Capt MacPher
son. Prior to the outbreak the Soudanese
murdered Major Thurston. Engineers Wil
son and Scott, with a force of Indian
troops, have gone from Mombaza to help
Major MacDonald quell the mutiny.
Thorn's Second Trial.
New York, Nov. 21. -Martin Thorn is
again to be placed on trial in the Queen's
county court, Long Island City, tomorrow,
for the murder of William Guldensuppe.
An extra panefof 15o jurors is to be Jn
attendance. It is said that Mrs. Nack
will probably be the first witness.

NICARAGUA CANAL DISPUTE
Japan's Proof That It Has Xo
The State Department Fully Con

Will Not Antagonize America.
New York, Nov. 21. The Sim will an
nounce editorially tomorrow, on what it
claims is conclusive authority, that Japan
has given ample evidence to this Govern
ment that it has no designs on the Nic
The interview between Mr. Hoshi, while
minister of Japan, at Washington, with
Mr. Rodriguez, representing the Greater
Republic ot Central America, plainly show
ed the determination ot Japan to maintain
cordial relations with the United States
and to reject any overtures, the acceptance
ot which might tend to place her in an
unfriendly attitude toward this country.
The Sun editorial gives the details ot the
meeting of these ministers. Minister Rod
riguez, It says, proposed that Japan should
guirantee to Nicaragua sovereignty over
the canal, as well a& its neutrality when
open to commerce. This proposal was re
ferred to the Toklo government, which
rejected the special guarantee orfer, but
said it had no objection to jt'lngthe
other maritime nations laving lty re
lations with Nicaragua, u "all n onabIe
and proper measures fbrthepresei . Honor
the neutrality ot the "canal."
"If this," says tlie Sun, "had been the
only message received at the time from
Toklo it might have hoon Inferred that
Japan was willing to combine with Eng
land and other European nations in a
joint guarantee of the, neutrality of the
canal, instead of deferring to the known
wish of the United States that the water
way should be under the special and sole
guarantee of this country.
"As a matter of fact, however, simultane
ously with the dispatch of the instructions
concerning the reply to be made to Mr.
Rodriguez, Mr. Hoshl was directed to com
municate with our Secretary of State, for
the purpose of ascertaining 'whether par
ticipationln such ageneralguarantee would

There the matter rests. Mr. Rodriguez
has gone home, and meanwhile even the
commercial treaty projected between Japan
and the Greater Republic'or Centra 1 America
remains uncompleted, lor purely com
mercial reasons Japan, not unnatuially,
desires to obtain such a treaty, but she
has convinced our state Department that
she has no intention ot participating in

New York, Nov. 21. The Marquis Apez
teguia, one ot the leaders or the Cuban
loyalists.-arrivcd in this city today on the

uary he lias been abroad, for the greater
part of the time in Madrid, where he went
to attend the sessions ot the Cortez. He
is a member of the senate.

the marquis thinks that the campaign
about to be begun by Blanco and his

capable of governing themselves.
The marquis said Spain was not mak
ing extra efforts to build up her navy.
The prospect for the crops in Cuba was
very bright and a 'full sugar crop and
very large tobacco crop would be grown
this season. Minister Woodford, he said,
had made a must favorable impression in
