said can be operated much cheaper
than the amount it costs the asylum
to buy ice They already have
the power and the only additionial
machinery necessary will be the
freezing aparatus
The cold storagewill also prove
a great saving to the State In
stead of feeding cattle and hogs for
weeks at a great cost they can be
butchered and the meat preserved

London May 3 The Spanish
cabinet according to a special dis
patch from Madrid to the Evening
News sat for four hours and only
discussed the Manila disaster
The discussion it- is added showed
the Spanish ministers are now
fully aroused i and will exhaust
their resources in defenseof the
national honor
After the cabinet council the
Madrid dispatch i to the Evening
News continues Gen Correa the
minister for the war and Admiral
QUEEN REGENT MARIA CHRISTINA
Bermejo the minister of marine
made a report to the queen regent
The latter it appears who had al
ready heard of the reverse -was
aflame with patriotic enthusiasm
and declared that while the loss of
so many ships was a misfortune
there was satisfaction in the re
flection that the Spaniards had
covered themselves with honor
The queen regent is said to have
added - My spirit can never be
daunted so long as I can rely on
the patriotism and courage of the
Spaniards
The absence of further details of
the Spanish defeat is supposed ac
cording to the Spanish officials to
be due to the precaution of Capt
Gen Augusti in defending Manila
Gen Lee may be sent as Gover
nor General of the Philippine Is
lands

Judge Thomas P Cook who is
now holding court at Eddyville
Monday will beiri Hopkinsville next
Saturday and on that day he will
appoint a Master Commissioner for
Christian county to succeed the late
Judge Thomas J Morrow
Who the fotunate man will be can
not at this time be foretold Judge
Cook is keeping his own counsel
while giving due consideration to
the claims j ofeach of the worthy
applicants No word has escaped
him tending to show any choice or
prefsrence between the gentlemen
That he will act for the best inter
est of the people and the Democrat
ic party none who knows him will
for a moment doubt
The race in the meanwhile has
reached fever heat and the several
candidates are each hopeful of suc
cess but impatient under the sus
pense
Among the applicants are three
prominent young members of the
local bar Messrs J T Hanbery
Frank Rives and Walter S Hale
either of whom is well qualified to
fill the position Should Judge Cook
decide to go outside the bar he
could not find a better man than
Capt C D Bell of South Christian
who is likewise an applicant forthe
position Between such men it is a
difficult and delicate matter to dis
criminate and Judge Cooks duty

COAL FOR DEWEYS FLEET 1
Two of the Swiftest Vessels Now
In San Francisco Ordered to
Be Chartered
Washington May 3 Secretary
Long has taken immediate meas
ures to relieve the United States
lleet in the Pacific of any embar
rassment it might feel for want of
coal
Orders were telegraphed this
morning to the Government author
ities at San Francisco to select two
of the swiftest ships at that port
load them with coal and dispatch
them at once to the relief of Commo
dore Deweys squadron
As China and Japan delayed mak
ing declarations of neutrality some
experts in international law hold
that the United States may still ob
tain coal in Eastern ports Com
modore Deweys achievements
however have caused the Adminis
tration to feel that the Government
should not hesitate to send him sup
plies at once without waiting to
speculate on what Eastern ports
may be open to him
