The administration, the Spanish min
ister and his corps of spies and the
Spanish lobby in Washington are nil
working along thp same lines, to defer
Congressional action in fayor of tho
Cubans and to prevent the Cubans get
ting aid from priyato parties in the
United States, and it is not to bo
wondered at that there are whispers of
a bargain. There are certainly grounds
for suspicion that such is the case. It
jis well known that Mr. Cleveland has
been and is at this time using all his
inlluenco to get Congress to postpone
definite action, and failing in that to
haye tho action of such a nature that
it will not be binding on him, and it is
said that he positively promised the
".Spanish minister that this government
would tako no step likely to strength
en the Cub.ms before next June. It is
also well known that there, is a strong
lobby, well supplied with money,
working on Congress in behaf of
Spain. Those things togellicc with
tho whole power of the administration
being at tho beck and call of the Span
ish minister to be used whenever and
wherever he suspects that a fillibuster
ing expedition is about to leavo the
United States for Cuba are not calcu
lated to increase Dublic confidence in
an administration already tainted by
its past acts.
A more senseless bluff was never
made on the floor of the Senate than
that of Senator Allen, of Xebr. Hay
ing first ascertained by publicly ques
tioning Senators Aldrieh, Piatt and
Hawley that his proposition would not
be accented by tho Republicans, ,Mr.
Allen gravely proposed in the namo of
the six populist Senators, that they
would furnish tho votes necessary to
pass the House tariff bill if tho Re
publicans would furnish tho votgs, nec
essary to add an amendment to that
bill providing for the free coinage of
silyer. And all this, mind you, on the
floor of the Senate in open session.
No man who heard Senator Sher
man's short speech after the Senato
had for the second time voted against
consideration of tho House tariff bill
could doubt the intense feeling that
lay behind his words. There 13 no
question about his having moaut oyery
word when ho said: "It in a disgruco to
our civilization; it is a disgraco to tho
country Itself that we are now expend
ing ?30,000,000 a year more than the ie
ccipts of the government, and that
Congress now in session, with both
Homes fully armed with power to f ur
nisa the revenue, is idle and refuses to
act. I w ill vote for a tax on tea, coffee,
on anything, in order to meet this de
ficiency, and I say that if tho present
Congiess does sojourn in tho face of
declarations now made to us, of tho
ofllciul reports sent to us, of tho state
ments made by the President of tho
United States and tho Secretary of tho
Treasury, that we aro now going on
day by day like a careloss spendthrift
to involvo the country in debt, selling
bonds when It is tho du,ty of Congress
at onco to supply tho rovenue." At
this point Senator Poller interrupted
to say that tho President asserted that
we did not peed additional revenue.
Quick ns a flash Senator Sherman re
torted in tones sharper than ho has
been heard to uso for years, "I do not
caro what the Prcsidont uaya Evory
man within tho sound of my yoke
knows that wo need more revenue."
Chairman Blngloy, of tho House
Ways and Means committee, said of
tho fate of tho tariff bill which bora
his nurao: "Of course this ends all
chances for the passago of any rovenue
bill. By a solid Democratic and Popu
list'vote, making in homsolves a ma-
iorlty. without tho votes of the five
silyer Republicans who joined them .1
tho Senate has said that it will not
hayo .hoiforty millions of revenue of
fered by the IIouso bill to prevent fur
ther deficiencies. The House libs done
its duty in offering revenue, but this
majority of the Senate assumes the
full tesponsibllity for rofusing it; and
no doubt'Presidont Cleveland is grate
ful to them for relieving him from the,
difficult position ho would have occu
pied if the bill had reached him and ho
had interposed a veto. The vote of
the Senate simply means that so far as
tho majority of that body is concerned
they want tho deficiency to continue
with the bond sales which it necessi
tates." Senator Mitchell, of Oregon, chair
man of the committee on Elections,
lias given notice that ho will call up
next week the report of that commit
tee in favor of seating Senator Dupont,
of Delaware. Tho debate on tho re
port will be spirited, but it is believed
that Senator Dupont will be seated,
even if the Republicans aro ono short
of a majority in the Senate.
The resolution condemning and cen
suring Ambassador liayard, for having
Ubed un-American language in public
speeches, was this week reported to
the House and its adoption may be set
down as a certainty. It is really a
great pity that the house has not tho
authority to recall him from the post
which he has used to misrepresent the
people to whom lie is under obligations
for honors conferred which have been
out of keeping with either his ability
ordiis patriotism. S.
IN THE OIL MELDS.
Voodsfield, Ohio, February 23 The
Henry Oil Company struck n five hun
dred barrels a day well on tho Steel
farm near Antioch Thursday.
Sistersyille, W. Va , February 23.
The case between the Henry Oil Com
pany and F. A. Sutton, which has been
in progress in tills city before Commis
sioner 11. S. Armstrong, of Helaire,
Ohio, for the past two weeicd, terminat
ed today in a compromise. This case
attracted great attention, and has been
in progress for nearly a year. By it
the Honry Oil Company sscured a one
fourth interest in tho Stacoy farm, one
of tho most valuable Ohio oil proper
ties. Tho well on tho P. M. Fuibee farm
when last heard from was fij feet in
the Dig Injun sand. Tho big pay
streak in tho Kyle and Weekly wells
was found at a depth of 00 feet in the
Dig Injun sand, hence those interested
in the v. ell will not give up hope of it
being a gushor until after the CO foot
marl: is passed. The Furbeo well has
the gas, oil and salt water in tho Dig
Injun sand at the same depth and
places as wore found iu tho Kyle and
Weekly wells. In other words, down
to 55 feet iu tho sand it shows up ex
actly as the two nbovo naipd big
gushers did and there is plenty of
room for hoping for a big well yet.
It's good now for 50 barrels a day a
very nice well. It is located about
two and a half miles ten degrees south
by east from the Kyle and Weekly
wells. Murphy & Co have started
another well on the same farm, on a 35
acre lease they lnold from Mr. Furbee.

It is obvious to all who haye studied
Goolho, tho great philosopher whoso
clear, penetrating cyo could plcrco the
iuuermoif heart of humanity, and by
tho aid of his own manly mind, could
create a character so preeminently
human as Faust, that ho must, from
tho very philosophy of tho creation,
have had in his mind a special office
for this character. For what then was
this Faubt created or re-created for
Faust was an old man and a doctor of
philosophy, until Goethe's philosophic
mind gavo to him a now birth uud
clothed him in tho warmth nnd glow of
youth. It is clear then that Faust
was either recreated for tho downfall
ofttho puro aniyoyoly. Margarine, vor
that, Margarita wqsholrtous ipage
wliosnipurlty and (toYeHncss gnvp the
very .suggestion of. the oharpoterthat
wai lo'be strong enough to effect her
downfallf and provo a complote tri
umph of wickedness over that which
was pure and holy.
But Mephlstopheles! Had he noth
ing to do with this Faust and Margar
ite? Menhistopheles, or tho devil, as "-o
will call him, to bo lucid, had a great
deal to do with them, ns wo well know.
But, think ye, tho devil himself was a
re-created being in tho grasp, of this
Brinreus Goethe, for did not this phil
osopher strip him of all his mythologi
cal appendages: horns, hoofs, harpoon
tail, brimstone, blue firo and every
tittle tttat went to make up a respect
able imp of the middle ages and invest
him in tho clothes of a gonlloman,
with all tho grace and polish of the
nineteenth century? Thoro was
Martha, the weak thing, who was in
charge of Mnrgaritej but who had not
the strength to resist tho diabolical
'smile of His Satanic Majesty nnd
readily became uu aid .in the ruin of
her fair charge. 'Tis true Siebel was a
friend of Margarite's, but tlje poor
faithful boy was poweiless ngainst tho
world, the flesh, and the devil.
The operatic setting of this wonder
ful story of Faust, by Gounod, the
great French composer, is full of pas
sionate and glowing effects. It is like
one great golden belt, with a diamond
centre; and tho garden bcene is the
diamond. In this scene are the two
son&s that are probably better known
than any other pait of tho opera the
Flower Song, by Siebel, and the Jewel
Song. The Jewel Song is tho climax
of tho whole conception, and marks
the fall of Margarite, who yields to the
glittering jewels placed in tho garden
by tho wily tempter. Tho long Cava
tina, by Faust, sung outside Marguer
ite's cottage, is a calm and beautiful
song in praise of the dwelling pure and
loyely, that holds an angel fair and
holy. The weakness of Martha in her
flirtation with the evil one is so evident
that evo tho devil thinks it absurd
that she should wish to marry him.
Perhaps the essence of tho devil's work
is pronounced in his prayer to tho
silent moon, and odorous flowers;
praying that thoy may aid tho entranc
ing charm to beguile the senses of
Margurite, that she may believe her
self dreaming in heayen. The subtlety
of this scene is beyond description.
Then follows the duet by Faust and
Maiguerite in which the daisy peatls
prote, "Ho love's me, ho loves me not;
he loves me." At tho end of this scene,
as Marguerito falls from her window
into the'arms of Faust, wo hear once
more tho awful, the exultant devil's
laugh and the garden bcone is ended.

OLD GRIZZLY FINALLY KILLED.
Death or a Wild Hour Which Infested tho
Vicinity of Chlco.
-"Grl7zly Bend" was Hie namo borne
for many years by that portion of the
county lying along the Sacramento
river southeasterly from Chico and em
bracing the Parrott ranch and other
lands in that Aleinity, bays tho Oroille
(Cai.) Mercury. Of course, it is u long
j ears since the grizzly held possession
there, as, like the Indian, lie w as forced
to ghe way before tho pioneer settlers
of that -vicinity.
A place, however, so well calculated
for the home of the grizzly could not
long be without its representative,
even if it had to be an animal some
what less wild and more domestic in ita
habits. Hogs turned looce in tho
tswnmps mid morasses soon became fo
wild that it was dangerotia lor apeison
to be caught xmawares by one of tho
patriarchs of the herds that infested
tho district. f
So large and icious had one of these
fellows become that he was known and
feaied by all the residents in thai -vicinity,
nnd for his wild nature and
ferocious conduct generally had be
como known as "Old Grizzly," and it
was claimed he was bullet-proof nnd
couldn't be slain. Presently ho fell a
-victim to a party of hunters who
sought him with tho avowed purpose
of effecting his extermination.
The boar w as an immense fellow and
weighed 550 pounds. His tusks were
long, one of them being paitly broken
off. Tho hide was over an inch thick
and the shields on the shoulders wero
ay. inches thick. lie had never been
injuied by dogs or gun before.

A Well-Known -Vn-ian Things llcr Sex
Mrs. John StelFt-n, of Bo1 ton, thinks
that driving will be the c lief amuse
jricnt of the coining woman. She be
lieves that the new woman, as well as
the old-fashioned woman, can find few
things in her life more enjoyable than
a spin behind a good horse or team, and
that, if she holds the reins herself, she
will quickly leauthatit adds immeas
urably to her pleasure.
The e.hilarating effect of the swift
action, the bracing air filling tho lungs
and sending the blood daneingthiough
tho -veins, tho trout-like pull on tho
lines that communicates to tho reins
woman something of the spirit of her
horses, the absorbing interest felt in
overcoming the little difficulties of tho
load, in negotiating abrupt tumB and
in meeting and passing other -vehicles
well, theie's nothing like it, accoid
ling to this enthusiastic horsewoman,

on tho drive she will come homo a
