HAVANA, Cuba, April 7.— An official
report issued this afternoon states that
Government troops attacked Maceo's
forces at La Palma, province of Pinar del
Rio, on March 29. The rebels were com
pelled to retreat. They left bfhind them
thirty-nine dead lying in the streets of the
town. Other dead and a number of
wounded were carried off by the insur
gents. The total losses of the rebels are
calculated to have been over ninety. The
Spanish loss is given as six volunteers
killed and seven regular troops wounded.
This is the first new* of a battle having
been fought at La Palma and it is impos
sible to verify the truth of the Govern
ment* account of the engagement.
Colonel Moncado reports that he Las de
stroyed a rebel camp at El Jobo, province
of Matanzas. The insurgents made a strong
resistance and did not retreat until four
teen of their number were Killed.
General Oliver reports the capture of
another rebel camp at Santa Rosa. The
rebel losses in the engagement were large.
The Spanish lost one lieutenant and four
soldiers killed and twenty wounded.

the attention of the President by the Sec
retary of the Senate, who presented him
with an enrolled copy of the document.
Ordinarily concurrent resolutions are not
forwarded to the President as they do not
require his signature, but these resolutions
■were because they express the opinion that
he should tender the offices of the United

Cuban independence, and are, therefore, a
direction to him in so far as Congress can
direct the President in such a proceeding.
NEW YORK, N.Y., April 7.— The Her

taken steps to inform himself as to the
exact condition of affairs in Cuba, and
has sent secret agents to the island to

ROENTGEN RAY IN EVIDENCE.
Photographs to Figure in a Suit Against a
New York Physician for Mal
NEW YORK. N. V., April 7.— The first
instance of the Roentgen rays being put
to use in proving a point at law will take
place to-day at a trial in the Supreme
Court at Brooklyn. Photographs by the
process will be exhibited showing the con
dition of a boy's arm, which was broken
over two years ago. These pictures will
be relied on to a large degree by the plaint
iff in the action to prove his allegations.
The suit is brought on the ground of
malpractice by Daniel David of Brooklyn
against, Dr. Gumond of Bath Beach, L. I.
David sues to secure $25,000 damages,
claiming that the doctor did not set his
son's arm properly, and that in conse
quence his son has become crippled per
manently and has entirely iost the use of
his left arm and hand. Davis
says that shortly after Dr. Gumond
set the broken bone the splints were re
moved, the boy's hand began to bend
downward, and the arm shrank and
twisted out of its natural position. The
condition of the member constantly grew
worse. The ringers were drawn up and
cnnnot be straightened, the wrist bone
protrudes badly, and the hand and arm
cannot ne moved about at will.
Last Friday David engaged Professor
Peckham of the Adelphi Academy, Brook
lyn, to photograph his son's arm by the
use of the Roentgen rays. The pictures
thus secured show conclusively that the
arm was not properly set. There is a
space of half an inch between the broken
ends of the bone. This would naturally
pretlude the possibility of tbe fracture
knitting properly. Prominent lawyers are
engaged in the case.

ÜBS ARE EXEMPT.
Not Compelled to Comply With the Raines
ALBANY. X. V.. April 7.— The Court of
Appeals handed down a decision to-day,
which holds thai clubs are not amenable
to the State excise law, and the inference
is that they cannot be required to take out
a license to sell liquor under the Raines
liquor tax law. The decision was in the
case of the people of the fctate against tbe
Adelphi Club of Albany. Judee Haight
wrote the opinion, in which all the Judges
concurred. Under these constructions of
a State excise law it is expected that the
Raines liquor tax law will be declared un
constitutional so far as it requires a club
to take out an excise license.

ATHENS, Greece, April 7.— This wag
tho second day of the Olympic games and
the interest in their revival showed no
sign of diminution. On the contrary,
there was more enthusiasm displayed than
was shown yesterday and the crowd that
witnessed the various events was enor
mous. The stadion was crowded to its ut
most capacity and the surrounding hills
were again packed with masses of human
ity desirous of seeing the tests of athletic
skill and endurance.
The King, Crown Prince and other mem
bers of the royal family were again pres
ent, as were also all the notables of Greece
and many from foreign countries. It is
estimated that to-day fully 100,000 persons
witnessed the games. The weather
was perfect and the grounds were
in far better condition than they
were yesterday. The contestants are
becoming more familiar witn their sur
roundings, aud this adds greatly to their
self-confidence. The American contest
ants who coTered themselves with glory
yesterday did well to-day, and it is the
general opinion that they will win several
of the final honors. One thing is believed
to have been established, and that is that
tne future of the Olympic games has been
decided, and that they will henceforth
take their place among the noted events in
the athletic world even though they are
not held on the classic grounds of Greece.
The first heat of the 110 meters hurdle
race was won by Goulding, an English
man, in 18 2-5 seconds. The second heat
was won by T. P. Curtis of the Boston
Athletic Association in 18 seconds. The
finals will take place Friday.
The long jump was won by Eilery H.
Clark of the Boston Athletic Association,
who covered 5.35 meters. R. T. Garrett,
captain of the Princeton team, was second,
with 6 meters to his credit, and James B.
Connolly of the Suffolk Athletic Club
third, with 5.84 meters.
The 400-meter race on the flat was won
by Thomas E. Burka of the Boston Ath
letic Association. His time was 54 1-5 sec
onds. H. B. Jamison of Princeton Uni
versity was second.
The next event on the programme was

may be able to agree upon phraseology
that will suit both miners and valley men,
though no understanding has yet been
reached. There is no doubt but that the
$250,000 appropriation will pass the Senate.
The full text of that part of the river and
harbor bill relating; to the Sacramento di
vision and tributaries is as follows:
"For improving the Sacramento and
Feather rivers and their tributaries — The
Secretary of War is hereby authorized and
directed to appoint a board, consisting of

"As I understand the measure which

DENOUNCED BY BOWERS
Agreement on Any Funding Bill
Declared a Barefaced
Under the "Gag," However, the
Scheme May Be Railroaded
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 7.—Rep
resentative Bowers saia to-day:
"The agreement of the Pacific Railroads
Committee on the funding bill means that
at least the Union and Central managers
(or perhaps to speak correctly, Mr. Hunt
mgton) have agreed to a bill and submitted
it to the committee. The details are a
matter of small importance; the vital part
is that the roads are to be relieved from
paying their debts. The Government is
to go on paying interest on its bonds, bor
rowing money at 4 per cent and loaning it
to these corporations for fifty or more
years at 2 per cent, and at that time this
debt will be more than doubled and no
more security thau now.
"It is the most barefaced and moustrous
scheme of robbery of the people of the
United States. There is no necessity for
Congressional legislation at this time to
preserve any of the rights or securities of
the United States in the matter. The
Thurman iaw provided for the collection
of the debt by the usual process of law and
any funding bill is solely iv the interests
and for the benefit of a few millionaires.
The report of the Secretary of the Interior
shows beyond any doubt that if the Gov
ernment proceeds as it is empowered now
to do, and commences action against these
defaulting roads and places them at oace
in the hands of a receiver, the receipts will
pay all running expenses, all interest on the
United States bonds that is now paid
yearly by the Government and leave a sur
plus of over $2,000,000 per year to apply on
the debt; that instead of being a source of
expense they -would become a source of
"It is astounding that any such out
rageous scheme can have any standing in
the Congress of the United States. If suf
ficient lime was given the opponents of
the bill to show it up I do not think it
could pass, but the signs all portend that
an attempt will be made to railroad it
through under the 'gag,' as the river and
harbor bill was. If it is it will damn this
Congress for all time."

KILLED FOR HIS GOLD.
Tragic End of the Checkered
Career of C. J. Doyle, a
WAS FLEEING FROM JUSTICE"
Men Engaged to Lead Him Out of
the Country Kill Him While
PORTLAND, Or., April 7.— A little less
than a year ago there came to Portland
from San Francisco C. J. Doyle, who coon
was discovered by the detectives *o be an
expert confidence operator, a "sure-thing'
man and a fake sprinter. He was arrested
several times on vagrancy charges to
frighten him out of town, and eventually
the police succeeded in ridding the city of
him. Doyle had a handsome and prepos
sessing countenance, but morally he was
corrupt, and now he lies in an unmarked
grave in Mexico. Detective Welsh to day
received a letter from Sonora, accompanied
by a ghastly photograph of Doyle showing
his appearance after having been treach
erously cut to death.
Two weeks ago Doyle "flimflamraed" a
Sonora Mexican out of $50 and the police
were at once placed oa nis track. The
culprit, knowing that he would receive no
mercy if appreiiended, hired two other
Mexicans to guide him out of the country.
Doyle's guides, believing that he had got
ten away with a much larger sum than he
f dually did, murdered him the first night
out while he was asleep near the Sonora
line. The photograph received here is
evidence that the treacherous guides
literally hacked their victim into pieces.
The letter adds that, while the guides
were yet engaged in their bloody work
the mounted police in pursuit of Doyle
came upon them and arrested them. They
were taken back to Sonora, where, in all
probability, they will speedily be executed.
Doyle had no reason to be a criminal, for
he was a member of a respectable family
in San Jose, Cal., which always supplied
him with ample means, and it is ?aid saved
him from going to San. Qaentin on two
occasions. But he was instinctively a
thief. When he came here he brought
with him from the bay a dashing and
seemingly refined young woman, whom
he at first passed off as nis wife. In his
Hurried departure from this city he left
her behind without a dollar. The woman
subsequently disclosed the fact that she
had not been wedded to Doyle.
