A village clergyman tells this story: He
ras walking tbroueh the outskirts of his
parish one evening, when he saw one of his
parishioners very busy whitewashing hiscot
tage. Pleased at these somewhat novel
aigm of cleanliness, he called out: "Well,
Jones, I see you are making your house nice
and smart." With a mysterious air Jones,
who had recently taken the cottage, de
scended from the ladder, and slowly walked
to the hedge which separated the garden
from the road. "That's not 'xactly thejea
aon why I'm a doing of this 'ere job," he
whispered, "but the last two couples as

Spanish Sovereignty in the Island
of Cuba Ceased at Noon of
New Year's Day.
AMERICANS ARE NOW IN FULL CONTROL
With a Brief Ceremony at the raises at
Noon of January 1, Capt. -Gen. Caatrl
lanos Turned Over Hia Authority to tien.
Wade, and He In Turn to Military Gov
Havana, Jan. 1. At noon to-day the
sovereignty of Cuba passed into the
hands of the .United States, and the
reign of Spain upon the western hemi
sphere came to an end. The Spanish
flag-, which for so many centuries has
waved over the island, was hauled
down, and in its place was hoisted the
Starij and Stripes, which, within the
last few months, has been unfurled
upon other conquered territory.
It was exactly 12 o'clock when a de
tachment of American troops marched
into the I'laza de Armas and lined up
in the beautiful square in front of the
palace recently quitted by 1'lanco and
his ferocious predecessor, Weyler. The
American commissioners arrived at
the palace soon afterward, having rid
den on horseback from La Vedado.
Within the palace all preparations had
l)een made to receive the conquerors.
Capt.-Gen. Castellanos, who succeeded
Blanco when the latter was relieved on
the ground that the disgrace of sur
rendering' sovereignty would be too
much for him, was waiting. In the
main hall of the palace the meeting
took place. The staff of the retiring
captain general, surrounded him. Cas-
tellanos spoke briefly, formally deliv
ering the island of Cuba to the gov
ernment of the United States. Gen.
Wade made a brief reply, mid imme
diately turned the island over to Gen.
Brooke, the military governor.
SPANISH FLAG LOWEKED.
Then took place the event which
must have cut like, a knife into the
heart of every Spaniard who witnessed
the ceremony. The Spanish flag, which
for over 400 years had waved from the
palace, was lowered. At the same in
stant the yellow and ml banners on
the famous and infamous Cabanas for
tress and Morro castle came down for
ever. As the Spanish flag was low
ered it was replaced by the Stars and
Stripes, and as the latter floated to
Hie breeze it. was saluted with twenty
After the American flag had been
hoisted the bands played the Ameri
can national hymn, and this was greet
ed with tremendous cheering by the
crowd that had assembled in Obispo
and (VKeilly streets, near the palace,
and in the I'laza de Armas. Along the
Prado and the other main streets 10U,
000 persons frantically cheered the
Americans and the United States. All
the houses occupied by the Cubans
were decorated, ihe flags, etc., that
had been taken down after Gen. Lud
low's order forbidding demonstra
tions having been replaced.
The Cubans were frantic with en
thusiasm, and shouted "Viva McKin
ley." Women thronged the streets,
their shrill shoutings mingling with
those of the men.
The United States flag was unfurled
on Cabanas by Lieut. Fitzhugh Lee,
Jr., and on Morro Castle by Lieut.
Wade, a son of Gen. Wade.
iieceipts were given to the Span
iards for the forts and other proper
ties which had belonged to the crown,
after which there was a- review of
troops under Generals Keifer. Willis
ton. Hasbrock and Col. Armfield. The
review took place in Central park, and
the troops passed before Generals
Brooke, Ludlow and Lee. The Sixth

as, Eighth regulars, Fourfit Virginia.

One Hundred and Sixty-first Indiana

LEE THE LION OF THE nOUR.
Gen: Fitzhugh Lee seemed to be the
lion of the hour. As the crowd surged
about flowers were thrown at him
from'.bal-onies and open windows,
and it was almost impossible for him
to force iis horse through the great
oacour;' of people.
The One Hundred and Sixty-first Tna
diana infantry furnished one of the
incidents of the parade. Every man
in the last company as he entered Cen
tral park, drew from under his uni
form a small Cuban flag and waved it
before the assemblage. The Cubans
went nearly wild with c'.ieers -and ex
citement, and Gen. Lee immediately
sent Inspector General Lieut.-Col. Cur
tis Guild, Jr., to order the Indianians
to put away the flacs, which they did.
It is reported that the entire company
is under arrest.

After the ceremonies were conclud
ed a commission of Spanish ollicers
came from the Halibut to take away
from the palace the painting of King
Alfonso, and the royal chair.or throne,
which had been forgotten, but the
American guard refused to allow them
to enter the building.
There were several pathetic inci
dents during the transferal of sover
eignty. Some of these took place in
the palace and others without. In the
palace where Gen. Castellanos stood
there was a deep silence for a moment
as the guns thundered out the salute
to the American Hag. Then tears
welled up into the eyes of the cour
teous Spariard, who has made many
friends during his short tenure of of
fice as captain general. He attempted
to speak, but his voice choked and he
was evidently laboring under deep
emotion. Finally he exclaimed:
"This is the most bitter moment of
my life. I hope that none of you may
ever suffer as I am suffering now."
SYMPATHY FOU CASTELLANOS.
Then Gen. Clous performed a noble
deed. Throwing his arms about the
shoulders of Gen. Castellanos, the
American, whose firmness has won the
respect of Cubans and Spaniards alike,
shouted: "Viva Espana."
Gen. Castellanos looked at him a
moment with great surprise. Then he
seized the American by the hand, and
in a voice choking with emotion, he
cried: "Thanks: you are too kind." I
Evidently fearing to trust himself
longer, he left the palace, and pro
ceeding to the wharf, entered a boat,
and was taken to the steamer which
is to convey him to Matanza, whence
he will embark for Spain. He was ac
companied by Gen. Clous to the boat.
The latter watched the departing
Spanish general until he had boarded

presented arms, and the officers sa

Gen. Miles when he gave his testimony

this line. The statement given out in

Cleveland, Dec. 30. Gen. George
A. Garretson of this city, wno com
manded a division in Porto Kico,

beef furnished the army was, to a
Urge extent, unfit for use.
The general said that a large

Washington, Dec. 31. The war in

lie a report, omitted in the statement
above, bearing on the beef controversy.
It is from Maj. W. H. Daly, chief sur
geon at army headquarters at Tampa
prior to the sailing of the Shafter ex
pedition, and is as follows:

matter. . .
"In my Inspection of the Fourth United

recently, I observed the same odor and
taste upon the fresh beef, but not so
marked, and at the camp of the Sixth
United States volunteer Infantry atChlck
amauga, I also, at several inspections,
observed it markedly. I there lnsiected
a lot of beef Just Issued to that regiment,
and while It looked well, was of a sicken
ing odor, like a human body dead of dis
ease and injected with preservatives, and
when cooked was quite unpalatable, con
sequently likely to prove an efficient
cause of Ill-health. The men complained
of its Insipid and mawkish flavor that
high seasoning could not conceal.
"Believing that the commissary depart
ment has been imposed upon by the mis

nishing fresh beef, 1 respectfully recom
mend that the matter be investigated b;
experts, making a quantitative and quali
tative chemical analysis of tne several
preservatives suspected to be used by
getting samples of beef furnished for ex
port to Cuba and Porto Rico.
"If the question arises that a report
should have been made by me earlier, I
beg to say that I have endeavored with
all my opportunities to lirst inform my
self by observation of the conditions
above noted sufficiently to -warrant my
drawing the attention of the adjutant
