Gen. Woylcr's last proclamation pro
viding for confiscation of the property
of those in active or passivo aid of tho
rebellion is bitterly denounced by Cu
bans. It is said to furnish the petty of

operations and also to wreak vengeance
upon Cubans generally. Under its
terms th6"property of any person fail

must bo seized. Many are compelled
to flco to interior towns or to tho cities

They wcro in mortal terror, as tho in

About to Be Added to the United
A Trial Trip of the Massachusetts to
v ?e Made by the Cramps.
8ho Will Go Into Commission In a Fow
Weeks Tho Cruiser Brooklyn Will Be
Finished In July The Iowa Will Bo
Launched Honictlmo Tills Month.
Philadelphia, March 18. Tho
United States navy will soon bo
strcngthed by the addition of another
powerful war vessel. On Tuesday next
the battleship Massachusetts will sail
from Cramps ship yard on her builders
trial trip. As the trial is for tho pri
vate Information of tho Cramp company
no guests will be aboard, nor will tho
government be officially represented on
the trip by any navy officers.
Tho trip will consume about four
days, but the best part of this time will
be takon up in tho descending to tho
Capes and ascending tho Delaware riv
er to the shipyards. If tho trial is sat
isfactory tho official trial of tho vessel
off the Massachusetts coast will tako
place in about six weeks.
The Massachusetts was launched over
two years ago, and but for tho delay in
tho completion of the armor and guns,
would have been in commission long
ago. Tho vessel is now practically lln
ished and if necessary could go into
commission in a few weeks.
The delay for several months iast
has been due to tho non-arrival of two
of tho four big 13 inch rifles which
form the Massachusetts battery. Two
of these guns are in place in their tur
rets, and onc-ls now on its way hero
from tho government proving grounds
at Indian llead, and tho fourth willTJo
shipped from Bethlehem in a day or
two. With the mounting of these guns
the ship will bo practically completed.
The Massachusetts is a sister ship of
tho Indiana. Tho big cruiser Brooklyn,
which was launched last fall, is rapidly
approaching completion and will bo
finished about tho middle of next July.
Tho sea-going ship Iowa will be
launched about the end of this month,
nnd it is not unlikely that President
Cleveland and some of his cabinet will
bo present upon the occasion. When
the Iowa is launched she will be pushed
as rapidly as possible, and tho Cramps
expect to havp her in readiness for her
trial trip before tho end of the year.
With the launch of tho Iowa, the last
big government vessel on tho stocks at
Cramps, will have been floated.
Tho company, however, is working
zealously to get the contract for the
construction of some of tho now war
ships Japan is to build and Gen. Geo.
TJ. William, the Cramps agent, will sail
again on tho steamer leaving San Fran
cisco next Saturday for the l.md of the
mikado and ho expects to bring back
with him in his pocket contracts for
several million dollars' worth of work.

to complaints about the presence nt tho

Friday morning Sheriff Armstrong de
cided, after a consultation with tho
governor, to summon a posse to pro
servo tho pcaco and allow tho polico to
At 11:15 a. m tho sheriff arrived at
tho capitol with eight deputies. All
except two regular deputies were prom
inent Frankfort citizents equally di
vided as to politics. The shcrliE told
the city polico to remain in tho ro
tunda. The rotunda was cleared at 11:20
o'clock.4 At that hour tho expelled
senator, Walton and James, were in
tho house. When tho bheriff and his
deputies', acting on the governor's or
ders, went to clear tho senate cloak
room, they found Senator Blackburn
thero with a crowd. Tho sheriff
told tho senator ho could stay,
but tho latter replied that the
sheriff had no authority over
him or anyone olse. Senator Bronston
hearing of it offered a resolution that
tho sheriff and his doputiesbe excluded
from tho senate chamber. The mayor
also onlercd tho sheriff out. Tho sheriff
was then summoned beforo the senate.
Mr. Btonstou's speech in support of
his motion was a bitter denuncia
tion of tho governor for sending
the sheriff inside tho cloak room. Ho
demanded tho adoption of his, resolu
tion to show tho governor that tho sen
ate "condemned such traitorous and
partisan interference with a body over
which ho had no control.''
The sheriff and his deputies and tho
sergeant-at-arms htood together in the
center of the chamber during Mr.
Bronston's speech. Mr. Salyars ob
jected to the "proposed insult to
tho governor." Tho sheriff then
left the chamber, saying he would
go and get written authority from tho
go ernor, who alone w as his superior
as an active officer. While ho was gone
the lhonston measure was ref cried to
tho committee on rules.
The senators then loft the chamber
for the house, to tako pait in tho joint
bession which was Boon called to order
by tin1 lieutenant governor. Dunhip

Walton and James occupied seats on
the republican side.
Tho roll call showed present 139.
Tho reading of tho journal was dis
pensed with. Tho republicans did not
vote dming tho beginning of tho roll
call and it was plain that Duulap had
declined to qualify.
While tho roll call was in progress
tho shci iff returned with a written re
quest from tho governor that he, the
sheriff, uso his influence as a peace
officer to preserve tho peace. He and
his deputies remained in tho rotunda.
Tho ballot resulted: Blackburn 50,
Carlisle 18, Buekner 1.
Xo republicans voted. The joint ses
sion adjourned immediately. It be
gins to appear that the democrats who
arc voting for Carlisle aro now the only
peoplo who really want an election.
