HUE'S lOR CUBA
Senator Introduces a Resolution
Recognizing the Republic.
ADMINISTRATION IS SCORED
"Wu Have Entered "Upon an Era of

iMn"Siuister Influence of .Span
ish Bondholders and American
The first guu for Cuba was fired in the
legular session of the Fifty-fifth Con
press yeterday by Senator Allen, of Ne
braska. The Senator has been the teud
f ust friend of the people of that oppressed
island since flit they began the conflict
that every Hue American hopes will result
In casting orf the tyrannical yoke or
Spain. In beneou and out of season lie
lias urged action. and nobly has the Senate
responded to the j-entiinents of the country
that have found vole tluough Mr. Allen.
It was he who riit introducod .i .resolu
tion declaring for the independence of the
Cuban Republic, and that resolution was,
it effect. If not in words, ravonibly re
ported from the Senate- committee- and act ed
upon bv the Senate.
Believing that the expressions in the
President's message should not be per
mitted to stand unchallenged, M'- -Allen
vesterday ofrered a new resolution which
declared it to bt- the w:nse of the Senate
that-the political independence of the
Cohans should lie lecognized aud upon
lids resolution he addressed the Senate
brief lv in one of his characteristic slieeches.
at the conolBslon ot which -,the resolution
we, at .Mr. Allon's request, reforfd to
the Coninilttoe on Foreign Relations.
Mr. Allen mid that for the seventh or
eighth time he Mood at his pine Ja the
chamber asking speedy and i-rfoctual
Coneressional recognition of the political
independence or the Republic. In the
race of the recommendations of -the Presi
dent, Mr. Allen said he would not l-c con
tent with u simple acknowledgment or
iHjlligerent rights; lie would demand ab
Hlute and unconditional political liberty
and a recognition or the government they
themselves have formed.
"Tile American people," said Mr. '.Ken,
"bojieve in pclitical ami religions hherty,
and they are anxious to accord lo nhers
what they themselves esteem the birth
right of ail. and I am confident, they will
not be content with the 2oure advised
i,v this, as the v were not with that pur
sued by the preceding admtnistr.il ion in
withholding from Cuba that priceless
In seeking to show that the American
sentiment did not sustain the resident's
policy, Mr. Allen continued':
'If you and I were permitted to pur
sue the course our natural inclinations
and judgments would impel us to take,
we -would say to Spain that the Cubans
having Tor over two years, on so many
battlefields, demonstrated tnelr valor
and undvlng love for liberty for them
srives and their posterity, they should
be accorded political recognition without
Turther temporizing, and we -would en
force OHr views, if we had the power,
with the presence' of a fleet of American
warships in Cuban -waters.
Rut. unfortunately for the advancement
and elevation of the human raw, and for
the glory of our country, we have entered
an era of cold and merciless commercial
ism UMit rreezes the blood of patriotism
in its veins and that is willing to sacri
fice human rights, the honor or women,
and the lives of children, if need be,
that the course of business may not be
checked or tliat the channels or trade
be not obstructed.
It I should be asked wlmt I mean
by this expression, 1 would answer with
out hesitation that the owners ot Spanish
bonds In this country, and American citi
zens owning property in Culm that lias
lx?en injured or destroyed by the insur
rection, and the carrying trade and the
commercial interests of the world whose
business might be affected by such a
step, have joined to prevent Cuban recog
nition, and their influence is surficienily
powerful in official circles to prevent
anything farther Iwing done in the in
terest of those unfbrunaie people; and
so our citizens who have hoped for speedy
and definite action on the pait of the
Administration and of Congress will lie
Replying to the charge that the Cubans
were a people incapable of self-government,
Mr. Allen argued that they should
be given a trial before being condemned.
"When," he continued, "the splendid men
and womeu or 177G, by their valor and
devotion to the cause of liberty, erected the
standard of a republic oa this continent
and tore down the banner of King George
aud threw it into the street, all Europe said
they were incapable of self-government,
and that a republic would lie a failure; but
we can thank those men and women tor
statesmanship and patriotism of a high
order, and for placing us in possession of a
continent where true manliood and Woman
hood arc above all other considerations
and where tliey count for so much. Are
we, the sons of such an ancestry, to become
pusillanimous and contemptible in the eyes
of the world by deserting the Cubans, our
neighbors and friends, wlio have been in
spired by our achievement, aud wlio are
now seeking the liberty we enjoy?
'I am an American citizen, devoted to
the weKare and progress of my country,
and I would knowingly do nothing that
-would imperil the cause that lies so close to
iny heart, for there d-jes not run in my veins
one drop of blood that is alien to the cause
of liberty and freedom Tor the human race
wlierever found. I am ready to vote on
tite question of absolute political inde
pendence without further debate or deliber
ation. My mind has been formed for a
long time on the course 1 should pursue,
anil I put myself in readiness to cast my
vote for Cuban liberty at any moment, and
1 regret the shilly-shally method in dealing
with tliis question employed by this power
Mr. Allen, in the further course of his
speech, said he believed the President
wished to carry out the provision of ihe
platform of his party on the Cuban ques
tion; that he was a conscientious man, and
desired to deal farlly, but that he vas
the victim of circumstances over which
he had no control and which robbed him
in a large measure of tliat freedom and
independence that should characterize the
Chief Executive of a mighty nation,
"The President," said Mr. Allen, with
emphasis, "seems to have beeti lulled to
sleep by the declaration of Spain that she
will give Cuba a semi-political existence,
bm oh as Canada has; but has the Presi
dent and his party forgotten that Spain
made suoh piomlscs under the Administra
tion of President Grant, only to violate
them in a shameless manner when Cuba
had laid down her arms? T have no faith
In Spanish promises or in her disposition
to carry out her pledges in good raith.
'Wc erect shafts of polished marble to
commemorate great eiwchs In our national
history, or a tiiumph in some important
battle; we sing paeans of praise to those
whose services have been given to the
cause of freedom and humanity, and we
accept the declaration that the highest
possible attainments cannot be leached
by man unless he enjoys enlightened and
just liberty. We have declnred our un
changeable devotion to the doctrine that
lhi6 continent shall 1m; free soil and be
trodden alone by freemen, and yet we
sustMn the hold of a tottering and cruel
monarchy, the institutions of which arc
passing into decay, and which is satisfied
only when inflicting on a civilized people,
"-when struggling for their political inde
pendence, the most cruel torture. In His
own good time, God will call us lo account
for such rank hypocrisy and such a shame
less -neglect of public duty."
Ihe eet " of "Mr ARei tiiade a marked
impression on the Senate. It Indicates
tlic public' interest in this great question
and presages the conflict tliat is to be
maintained untjl the Administration is
farced to act at; the millions of American
freemen insl-t it shall act. The American
people avM not he satisfied until Ameri
ca's strong arm is extended and the
Spanish joke lifted rrom the neck of the
Cubans, and their bondage is turned into

Madame Melba, the "Divine Xellie," w.io
is such a popular favorite in Washington, Is
meeting with great success as the lei ler
of Mi. Damrosch's company thin year. A s
a mere vocalist she possesses the most
beaut If ul voice at the servlcojf an an
puraileled technique. As a singe she adds
to a style irreproachably correct the fir.t
measure of faentiment, a.jdrainatic accent
all her own, inimitable Inflections of the
voice, and an art of articulation which is
more- easily admired than imitated. As
an actress, the- scenic illusion Is compl.-te
with her, and It is said of Gounod that,
when she sang in Paris, contrary to his
usual habit of leaving the managerial iox
after the ballet, on Melba nights he always
stopped until the end of the opera. This
is Madame Gadikl's fourth season with the
Damroseh company. She was heard here
one year ago as Elizabeth in"Tannlmusr,"
and two years ago was vyy successful In
the role of Hester 1'rynne, in "The Scnr'.et
Letter,' which she created. She sanJC it
in English. No one who saw her as the
heroine of that somber tragedy, tile more
sotnlwr because gnawing remorse Is here
more terrible than frantic explosion, will
soon forget the ineffubly sweet and ad
and tender benuty of her performance, ohe
is only twenty-seven years of age aud un
doubtedly has a great future. Herr Ernest
Kraus, tlie tenor, wlio succeeded A 1 vary in
the Damrosch Company, is a grandly hand
some man, over six feet cull, and has a
superb voice. "Lohengrin,8' which he slngN
here, is one of his greatest roles. Othr
principals are Salignnc, Fischer, Can
panarl aud Ibos. M. Sallgnau Is a Paris
nrilst fiom the Opera t'omlque, who made
his first appearance In the T7nlted States

man who had been noted for hl parfm my
until he becomes interested in a pretty

Sugar declared only the regular divi
dend of ;t per cent yesterday, contrary to
the general expectation on Friday. Eariy
in tht morning Sugar began to decline and
the street in general inferred quite rea
sonably that there would be no extra.
When the action of the directors became
known, everybody was, for the day, ar
rayed against tlie trust stock. The decline
for tht day was 4 points, to 140 and a
fraction. There are some who predict
that there is to be a further bud slump
in Sugar, but the chances seem lo he
against this. One cannot say how far
manipulation will go rurther, but the chances
are much against Sugar dropping - points.
The cnrerul people believe that some
time today itwill begin to climb again and
that an advance of several points is to
be expected. Everything In the condi
tion of the trust tavors this theory. The
fact Is that the insiders are buying Sugar
and the room traders selling It. The
story of the bitter opposition flaunted
by the manipulators has given way to
the authoritative statement that the Doseher
leflnerles will l-c friends and allies of the
trust, if even as some allege they tire
nor-already a part of It. Mr. Dlngley and
Secietary Gage have shut out frieign
sugars entirely. Ah these matters, with
the still frequently reiterated nssn-tion
that the Standard Oil people -ire in the
tiust, seem unavoidably to mint toward
a good advance.
For almost the first time in many '.vi'ks
Sugar and the remainder of the s-tocti
market traveled different ways yast?r
day. AA'hile Sugar was tumbling, the
grangers, the other industrials, and, in
Tnot, nearly everything elf was climbing.
AYith this advance there was Increased
activity all the morning, and apparently
a considerable amount of new outside buy
ing. The news of the day was, as usual,
considered favorable by the street. Some
of the AYestern railroad rate disturbances
were settled and earnings were all Rood.
Toward tlie close of the day the buying
lost some of its eagerness, and there were
evidences ot pretty heavy realizing. A
reaction today seems probable.
Tlie earnings ot the C, C, C. .t St. L.
for the fourth week of November increased
There is considerable bullish talk about
Chicago Gas. Town Topics says:
"Tlie Flower party purposes making their
specialties quite active. The sixty .lays'
puts on People's Gas at 93 naturally draws
attention to the stock afresh, and must
stimulate activity. The ex-governor will
not leave Jor his long vacation until the
27th proximo, and he avers that, between
this and then, People's Gas will sell v.c-11
above 100. Connor is bullish, of coirsu,
on his Great AA'estem. If the market holds
all the low-priced shares will advance.
Dow, .Tones & Co.' say of the grangers:
"People who have been bulls Tor a
month, and particularly on the granger
group, do not abandon their position that
those stocks are soon to sell at materially
higher figures. The heaviest buyers re
cently have been the liTe insurance and
other financial institutions. People who
have advanced Quinoy In past times talk
very confidently of its crossing 110 be
fore the winter is over, and it it is de
termined to go on the 6 per cent basis in
February the stock will sell above 125.
Koclr I viand may remain at 4. per cent
for some lime, and it may not, for this
road, of all the grangers, pays to its
stockholders what It earns, whether it
be 0 per cent orti percent. St. Pa.il
exhibited unusual strength yesterday in
keeping with its previous reputation f
being a laggard iu the early etages of a
bull market and then becoming a leader"
It Is rumored that dividends will be de
clared on Chesapeake & Ohio and Southern
Rallwj:yt. There was a story yesterday
that Moigan Interests are again at work
on these slocks.
Louisville & Nashville looks good for
a further decline from present figures.
There is nothing In the cituatlon of the
company especially hopeful. There seems
no probability of a dividend in Januury
despite the rumors that such action has
been detei mined on by the directors.
Russet Sage is said to be strongly bullion
on Missouri Pacific.

there appears u be no limit to the rp

that advanced the price, and as they are

Armour started Mxty-four ears of wheat
from Minneapolis over the St. Faul road
for Chicago today, and Peavey loaded
fifty-seven cars, but, finding that It would
not grade here, unloaded it. The vital
