Receiving Much Attention at the
Hands of the President.
Rumors That an Investigating Com
. mitteo Will Bo Sent to Cuba
Docs Not Find Corroboration Among Well
Informed Ofllclals All Applications of
Officers for Leavo of Absence, to Go
to the Island, Aro Refused.
Washington, March 14. The presi
dent is known to bo giving much atten
tion to the situation in Cuba. So far as
can bo learned nothing definite has yet
been the outcome of his consideration.
Rumors that an investigating commis
sion or an army officer has,becn, or will
bo sent to Cuba, does not find corrob
oration among well informed offi
cials. Several army officers have
annlicd for leave of absence with
permission to go to Cuba; but the per
missions were refused. While It is not
believed at tho war department that
any of tho officers who made such ap
plication desired to take part in the
present hostilities it was deemed best
to keep them away from Havana. It is
obviously impossible that any American!
army officer should havo visite'd Cuba
under present conditions without his
presenco being promptly reported.
It is also learned that permission to
go to Bcrmudatnnd other British forti
fied ports near tho United States coast
has been rofused to United States army
officers Binco Mr- Cleveland's Vene
zuelan message was sent to congress.
Tho reason for this Is obvious. Amer
ican officers must bo held in distrust
as persons seeking information about
the British fortifications uud the war
departmept did not propose to take any
llaltlmoro Clothiers Full.

ON THE DRY DOCK.
Tho Warship Indiana Taken to Fort Royal
Beaufort, N. C., March 14. Tho
docking of tho great warship Indiana,
at tho adjacent Port Royal basin, has
been axlously looked for hero by tho
pooplo of tho entire south Atlantic
coast. The railroad worked up largo
excursions and thoro was quite an in
vasion of visitors to see tho docking
of tho noted vessel. They camo
by tho huudreds from South Caro
lina and Georgia and by noon
thero were about two thousand
visitors on tho ground. Those who
went directly to Port Royal saw tho
Indiana lying out in tho stream liko a
floating brown stono fort. Tho docks
were soon crowded with visitors and
tho announcement that tho battleship
would be open to visitors at pno o'clock
wns gladly welcomed. Tho Indiana
had quite a rough time of it down from
Hampton Roads, encountering a galo
and heavy southwest winds. Tho
hatches leaked a bit from the firing of
tho heavy guns foro and aft, for tho
board of inspectors.
Capt. Evans is delighted with tho
trip ho far. The Indiana is drawing
24.8 feet, and had she been drawing 29 J
feet she could havo como in as well. If
nothing unfavorable occurs and tho
westerly winds aro not too high, tho
docking will occur in tho morning on
thojiigh tido at 9 o'clock. The author
ities of the naval station and tho dock
officers aro confident there will not

therb havo been any changes in the

Indiana goes in tho' dock on tlmo Sat
urday morning tho expectation is the
two largo pumps will have tho basin
empty by noon.

of Kaufman (dem.), -did not quaillfy
Saturday, and without his vote tho re
publicans did not hopo to elect Boyle.
In tho house Mr. Nanco offered a res

more important than the election of a
United States senator, and ns It wns ro

Sheriff Armstrong had another con
sultation with the governor Saturday
morning. After coming oflt of tho ex
ecutive office the sheriff wiid the gov
ernor wanted him to take a squad of
militia to tiie capital Sntm'day. Ho
told tho governor that in preferred a
posse of citizens. Tho' governor also
wanted him to clear the eloalc rooms,
but ho declined to do so.
Tho governor proceeded to w'rito out
an order, but before the sheriff had ar
rived at tho capitol, which was' again
in charge of the police, the senate eloalc
room crowd had gone over to tho houso
to witness tho joint session.
Kefore the senate filed over to tho
houso Mr. Stephenson withdrew his
motion of Friday to reconsider tho vote
by which the seats of Walton and
James were declared vacant, yhcn

to be moving along smoothly until tho

liams and others from coming in.
Doorkeeper Tyler, of the senate, camo
up nnd tho new houso guardian tried
to force him out too, but Tyler per
suaded him finiilly to relinquish the
post. There wero 183 present at tho

Hague Commission Kxpccts a State
ment of tlio One. In u I'cw Days.
Washinoto.v, March 14. Tho Vene
zuelan commission at its regular meet
ing Friday, with all the members pres
sent, virtually reached the conclusion
that the main points at issuo in tho dis
pute hinged on documents lying in tho
royal archives" of Spain and Holland
nnd perhaps somo other countries; that
while such documents would prob
bly bo quoted by each of tho
disputants in support of tho
contradictory claims presented, the
duty would devolve on tho commission
not only to verify by actual examina
tional! such citation, but, if practicable,
to develop contemporary documents
whicli might throw strong side lights
upon tlio evidence submitted. While
definite action was postponed un
til the full British nnd Vene
zuelan case shall havo been
formally brought under consideration
there remains no doubt that somo of
tho commissioners, or nt all events tho
secretary of the commission, Mr. Malet
Prevost, and agents under his direc
tion will soon be sent to Madrid and
the Hague. It fs explained that this
determination is not due to the alleged
discovery of misquotations in decrees
and treaties already in the com
mission's possession, but from tho
conviction that the final decision of the
commission ought not to be open to any
attack as to inconclusivcne&s of tho
pivotal evidence upon which such de
cision will in all probability bo
found to depend. In tho pielim
inary investigations of tlio com
mission thoy havo been confronted
with jiuracrous diametrically con
flicting maps and translations.
While geological discrepancies are
within tlio power of the commission to
harmonize through the enormous mass
of corroborative charts, it commands
comparatively indecipherable and par
tial illegibility of royal decrees aro
thought to be matter which necessitate
personal and, export examination.
Tlio commission expects to be in pos
session of the British blue book, as well
as the greater part of Venezuela's case.
early next week, and in view of this
anticipation Mr. Coudert and Presi
dent Ciilinan, who have hitherto spent
littlo time in Washington, will re
main hero for tho present for
daily meetings at which tlio weighing
nnd comparison of evidenco will bo
proscuted continuously. No one of
the commissioners has yet had an op
portunity to carefully examine tho
British case as the only available
copy that has reached them was one'
of tho advance edition sent by
Ambassador Bayard to tho state de
partment which may contain typo
graphical or other errors incident to
The regular copies for the commis
