Likely In b Ttumlnc Question In tha
Mczt Concress Independence or Rpaln
Assured Th Jiext Step Will Naturally
be to Reek ITotertloii I'nder the Fold of
the Stars and Stripes American Interest
Chicaoo, Aug. 30. A WashinK'-ou
special to an evening' paper says:
Annexation will be a burning ques
tion in the next congress; but the
pivot upon which it will turn will be
Cuba instead of Hawaii. Private ad
vices received at the state department
in the last twenty-four hours indicate
that the independence of Cuba is but
a question of a short time. The news
has none of the features of a surprise
to our diplomatists. The inability
of Spain to quell the revolution
has been apparent for some time
and the reason was. as plainly
to be seen, in the fact that Gen. Cam
pos, the Spanish military leader,
lacked the support of the conservative
elements of the island. The commer
cial interests of Cuba have not been in
full sympathy with the insurrection
ists for the very pood reason that the
character of the latter rendered their
triumph and consequent rule unde
sirable to property-owners and the
conservative and respectable element.
Hut while withholding' their sympa
thy from the insurrectionists, the con
servative residents of the island have
piven no support to Spain, hoping that
by such non-action the Spanish gov
ernment m'ght in time be forced by
the incorrigibility of the insurgents to
grunt independent concessions to the
Cubans. These concessions were prom
ised at the close of the last Cuban rev
olution, but were never carried out by
Kpain. They consist chiefly of a de
mand for a more equitable and hu
mane S3stem of taxation and a
fair representation for Cuba in the
Spanish cortes. It is not surprising
that the Cuban view of the case should
enlist American sympathy in certain
quarters, for it is only a reiteration of
the old colonial doctrine: "No taxa
tion without representation."
lien. Campos, the Spanish military
leader in Cul:i, urged the Spanish gov
ernment many months ago to grant
these concessions promptly, and thus
insure to him the moral support of the
best, elements of the island, and he
promised that the rebellion would be
Spain declined to consider the ques
tion of concessions until after the rev
olution had been quelled. It is now
a serious question whether, if Spain
should decide to grant these rights,
she could at this late day command
the support of the so-called "conserva
tive" element of the island for Spain,
for. having broken her promises once
before ic the matter of promised con
cessions made under stre-s of revolu
tion, she might, it is feared, do so
again. At the same time, the tax
ridden Cubans, seeking immunity from
their taskmasters, hesitate before ac
cepting a situation that promises ne
gro domination and the placing in
power of some of the heretofore law
less elements of the islands.
It is believed that the time has ar
rived when the respectable element of
the island, the property-owners and
law-abiding classes, find they must
Interpose to protect their interests
against the threatened ascendancy of
the banditti and other ignorant ele

of Cubans. This they will do by as

formally throwing off the Spanish
yoke and setting up an independent
The next move, it is believed, will
be an appeal to the Uuited States for
annexation. American interests in
Cuba are much larger than has here
tofore been popularly supposed. A
prominent Cuban declared to-day, in
discussing the subject, that three
firms in Wall street hold mortgages
an nearly ali the plantations in Cuba,
and that most of the skilled labor of
these plantations, as also on railroads
and in factories are American, while
.American capital figures in nearly all
the industries of Cuba either as a
direct investment or in the form of

NEW GRAND MASTER.
Hketch of sir Knight Warren Larue
Thomas, or Kentucky.
Lotisvii.i.E. Ky., Aug. 30. Righ
Eminent Sir Warren Larue Thomas,
the new grand master, is a resident ol
Maysville, Ky. He was born at Eliza
bethtown on January 26. 1S45. His
parents removed to Danville while he
was a youth, and he was educated at
Center college, one of the most famous
institutions of learning in the state.
Warren Larue Thomm.
Cpon the completion of his college
course, he engaged for a few years in
mercantile business, but was induced
to abandon it for the life insurance
field, which business he has pursued
for twenty years.
As soon as he became of age, Mr.
Thomas petitioned the masons for
membership, and at once received all
the degrees in the Blue lodge, chapter
and council. He became interested in
the workings and teachings of the
order, entering upon the York rite.
He soon became a member of the
errand bodies of Kentucky. After fill
ing various subordinate positions in
both bodies, he was, in October, 1830,
elected grand master of the grand
lodge and grand high priest of the
grand chapter, filling both position
the same year. He had already occu
pied the chair of grand master of the
grand council, Royal and Select Mas
ters. In October, 1S72, Sir Knight Thomas
received the Knight Templar orders
in DeMolay commandery Xo. 12 of
Louisville, preparatory to organizing
a commandery at his home in Dan
ville. In February, 1873, he assisted
in the forming of Ryan's commandery
Xa 12 at Danville, and was the first
captain-general of that commandery,
afterward holding the office of eminent
commander for two years. In 1874 he
was elected grand senior warden, and,
after regular promotion, was elected
grand commander in 1S7S.
In 1874 Sir Knight Thomas attended
the meeting of the grand encampment
at New Orleans as the proxy of the
grand commander of Kentucky, and
has beeu present at every grand en
campment since that time. At Chicago
in 1880 he was elected to the office of
grand junior warden, and at each tri
ennial conclave since has received a
regular promotion, having been elect
ed deputy grand master at Denver in
18!2. Sir Knight Thomas is also a
member of the Shrine of the Ancient
and Accepted Scottish Rite, having
been crowned with the Thirty-third
degree in January, 1HS0.
Sir Knight Thomas is a typical Ken
tuckian, being 8 feet tall and weigh
ing 200 pounds. He is regarded as one
of the best nnsonic jurists in the or
der, and for years has served on the
jurisprudence committees in the vari
ous grand bodies of his native state.
Being a ready debater and forcible
speaker, with a good presence and fine
voice, his influence is felt on all mat
ters of legislation coming before the
grand bodies. He has always been a
champion of the Masonic Widows' and
Orphans' home, the pride of all Ken
tucky masons, and much of the suc
cess of that institution is due to his
efforts in shaping legislation for its

BRADSTREET'S TRADE REVIEW
Shows a Striking Increase In the Volume
of Bailness With the Jobbers in Staple
Lines Veritable Boom In llessemer
PiC, While In Dry Good-, Millinery,
Shoe. Hats, Clothing and Groceries the
Autumn Demand Is tiood.
New Yor.K, Aug. 81. Bradstrcet's
The concluding week of August sur
prises even the more optimistic with a
striking increase in the volume of
business with jobbers in staple lines,
at such centers as New York. Balti
more, Boston. Chicago, St. Louis Kan
sas City, St. Paul, Minneapolis, and to
a more moderate extent at distributing
points in south Atlantic and gulf
states, among them Charleston, Chat
tanoogo, Atlanta, Savannah. Jackson
ville. Birmingham and Dallas.
In dry goods, millinery, shoes, hats,
clothing and groceries the autumn de
mand is making itself felt, with the
prospect for a further improvement in
immediately succeeding necks.
This situation is encouraged by a
practical certainty of an unprecdent
edly large crop of Indian corn and a
phenomenal harvest of wheat in the
northwest, as well as by the unex
pected bound of prices of steel and
iron, fo "owed by a corresponding gain
in demand. The gain in quotations
for steel and iron is one of the shap
est within a week on record, and
following, as it does, an advance
of about 50 per cent, from lowest
levels reached in 1893-94, is enough to
aise the question of whether a verita
ble boom is impending in these metals.
A jump of nearly S2 per ton for Bes
semer pig within a week, Sl.0 for bil
lets. $1 for charcoal pig, and western
mills refusing to take orders for fu
trne delivery except at value, renders
these industries excited. All forms of
finished iron and steel will tend up
ward in price.
The total volume of general trade
for the summer has been larger than
in lSnt. and in many instances than in
1803, with the outlook to-day for even
a better fall demand than many antic
ipated. The upward and onward im
pulse cf this week is noticeable. All
winter lines of goods have felt an im-
proved request, and manfaetnrers and
jobbers are preparing to handle a large
Even at the south, where recovery
from the effects of the late trade de
pression was felt latest, jobbers in dry
goods, hardivar" and groceries, an
nounce the receipt of many orders for
September delivery. Even in Texas,
where at the south the state has suf
fered from drought, and at the north
from continuous rams, and where the
cotton crop is to be short in conse
quence, country merchants report a
better feeling in all lines and a fair
demand from wholesalers.
Increased wheat shipments from Ta
coma, investments at Seattle, flour
shipments from Portland (since the es-
tablishment of the China steamship
line) and a moderate volume of trade
at San Francisco characterizes the sit
uation on the Pacific coast.
Exports of wheat from both coasts
of the United States and from Mon
treal this week (flour included) amount
to only 1.871,000 bushels, against 2,
38!.0!)0 bushels last week, 3.420,003
bushels in the corresponding week
one year ago, and 5,002,000 bushels two
During nine weeks of the current ce
real year, total wheat and flour exports
from the United States and Canada
amounted to only lO.oOO.OOO bushels, as
compared with 2."000,000 in a like por
tion of the preceding year.
A FRIEND IN NEED.
The Hrlmont-Mortin Syndicate Still
Standing by the Cnited States
Treasury Gold Reserve.
Washington-. Aug. 31. It is gener
ally recognized here in oflicial circles
that the Belmont-Morgan syndicate
will not permit the treasury gold re
serve to fall below the S100.000.000
mark. Four times they have come to
the lvscne when such a result would
have followed constant drains on the
reserve for shipment to Europe.
Yesterday, at the last moment, the
syndicate deposited S1.0OO.000 in gold
in exchange for legal tenders, without
which the gold reserve would have
dropped below the limit.
At 1:30 o'clock Assistant Treasurer
Jordan at New York telegraphed that
S2.2.-.0.000 in gold hail been withdrawn
for export to Europe. This reduced
the treasury gold reserve to 899,450,-
At 3:35 o'clock a telegram from Mr.
Jordan announced thi.t the syndicate
had deposited SI. 000,000 in gold, which
raised the treasury gold to S10O.45G,-
So far the syndicate has deposited in
excess of the gold required for its S02.
400,000 in bonds nearly 810,000,000 to
keep the reserve intact.

Chicago, Sept ?. Ample evidence
of systematic stealing of city water by
means of "blind" pipes has been discov
ered in the Union stock vards. The
beneficiaries have been certain pack
ers, and the investigation, which has
only just begun, is expected to dis
close wholesale secret tapping of the
mains in the old town of Lake, in
which the stock yards are located.
Subordinate officials of the water
department, acting under secret or
ders of the commissioner of public
works, and assisted by a gang of
workmen, discovered a six-inch pipe
from a city main to one of the big
packinghouses, which was diverting
water from the meter.
It is estimated bv the investigators
that the city has lost millions of dol
lars in water revenues by reason of
the secret appropriations of water for
many years. The investigation is
hampered by the fact that there are
no maps of the town of Lake water
system and it may be necessary to nn
cover four miles of mains and cut off
every pipe leading to the stock yards

712 pounds in ISO. Reduced to

J he number of sheep on the 1st
of April is estimated at 30. 940.-
3S8. and the average weight of fleece
was C.8'.t." pounds, the slight variation
arising chiefly from the reduction in
weight in Pennsylvania, Colorado and
Oklahoma. In most cases where the
weight of fleeces has been reduced
there will also be a reduction in the
shrinkage between the condition of
the wool as sheared and its scoured
state. This is caused in most instances
by the crossing of merinos with other
breeds, the result being a fleece of less
weight and containing less yolk or
suint. and therefore of lighter'shrink-
age, although the change has in some
cases resulted from a dry season.
