in Martinique Disaster.
ANNAPOLIS, Md.. May 21.—The initial
reception of the representatives of the
French republic who are here to par
ticipate in the ceremonies attendant upon
the unveiling of the Rochambeau monu
ment in Washington next Friday, took
place on board the French battleship
Gaulois in Ananpolis .roads at 2 o'clock
today. The weather was ideal.
The scene in Annapolis bay was pictur
esque and inspiring. Besides the usual
contingent of sailing vessels and small
craft dotting the bay there was a num
ber of formidable representatives of the
American navy at anchor in the Severen.
These included, besides the Dolphin, the
auxiliary cruiser Gloucester, the battle
ship Indiana, the trainingship Chesa
peake, the Monitor Terro, the practice
ship Standish, the torpedo boat Gwynn
and the submarine boat Holland.
The commissioners representing the
United States, namely, Col. Theodore F.
Bingham, superintendent of public
grounds in Washington, Assistant Secre
tary of State Pierce and Commander B.
IT. Rodgers, reached Annapolis from
Washington on the 9:15 train and at once
proceeded in carriages to the wharf
where they embarked on the dispatch
Dolphin Meets the Gaulois.
The commissioners were accompanied
by the members of the French emDassy
at Washington. At 11:30 the Dolphin got
under way, steaming, slowly over the
shallow channel to meet -the incoming
Gaulois. The Gaulois and the American
escort, the Olympia, Alabama, and Kear
sarge, under the command of Admiral
EJigginson, were anchored off Greenberry
point lighthouse, five miles below An
The Gaulois^. anchored just as the
Dolphin appeared on the scene, fluttering
her jack at the bow in token thereof, at
12:50 p. m. Some 2i).t yards en the bow
of the French battleship Admiral Hig
ginson's flagship, the Olympia, came to
anchor, while the Alabama and Kear
sarge took positions below the Olympia
at points equidistant from each other.
The Indiana, which lay between Annap
olis and Green Berry Point lighthouse,
was the first to give a sign of welcome
to the French warship—hoisting a sig
Salute of Twenty-One Guns.
The Alabama responded with a sigßal
and then the quiescent air reverberated
with a cannon boom from the Gaulois,
the traditional twenty-one guns being
fired. This was followed by two patriotic
airs from the band on board the Gaulois,
one of them being the Marseillaise. Im
mediately thereafter the United States
commissioners proceeded in a launch to
the Gaulois, and as they approached the
French battleship a salute of fifteen

preparation had evidently been made for

Details of Affair of Spanish
Woman When a Town
O'BRIEN TESTIMONY ENDS
Corporal Says.He Did Not Tell "What
. He Knew While in the Army
for Fear He "Would Be
"WASHINGTON, D. C, May 21.-Cor
poral O'Brien, formerly of the Twenty
sixth volunteer infantry, was before the
senate Philippine committee today, and
produced the alleged '•dum-dum" or ex
plosive bullets. 77-.-.
Gen. Crozier, chief or ordnance, testified
that the cartridges were the same as the
regulaticn Krag-Jorgensen. He explain
ed that some times the action of these
bullets produced" serious wounds.
He attributed the effect to the pushing
out of the blood and tissue by the bullet.
He explained that "dum-dum" bullets
could be made by filing through the steel
covering of the lead of an ordinary cart
ridge, thus permitting the lead to be ex
posed. This could be done, he said, in
five minutes; the effect of a wound'by
such a buiiet being the same as that pro
duced by a larger bullet. He al?o said
that no explosive* bullets had been issued
since the St. Petersburg convention of
186$. . 7 . -
Details of Alleged Mistreatment.
O'Brien was questioned .closely by Sen
ator Beveridge, who required the witness
to go into very minute details respecting
his charge that American officers had
violated the person of a Spanish woman
at the time the town of Igbaras was
burned. The woman's husband, witness
said, stated that there were four of them
engaged in the affair, but gave no names.
Questions by the senator brought out
the fact that there were just* four Amer
ican officers in the town of Igbaras.
"Consequently," said the senator, "if the
statements made by the woman's j hus
band are true, these four men are guilty
of the crime charged." The witness as
sented to this inference.- He related
that some.of the privates had told him
of their relations with the woman. '■' He
gave the names of two privates as being
those whom he thought had told him to
Senator Patterson, of Colorado, declai
ed Senator Lodge had menaced the wit
ness, and 7 Mr. Lodge denied it. Then
Messrs. Patterson and Dietrich had a
controversy, the latter charging Mr. Pat
terson with doing all he could to injure
the army. The Colorado senator resent
ed this. The minority, he -Aid, made an
honest and faithful effort to get at the
facts, and he was convinced the present
intention was to divert it from that
course. .■■■■. .*■ -yyf:
His; Life "Would Be a Hell..*
Senator,Beveridge asked the witness if
he had made any report concerning" the
treatment of the Spanish woman. The
witness replied that he had not made such
a report, "because," he said, "I knew
that if i reported the affair I would be
dogged and that my life thereafter would
be a hell." - . :. ■ ... ■■ .-...
--"Why, then, did you-volunteer a state
ment in regard to the matter?"
"I wanted the committee to know th«
facts as-they 7 had' come to me," he re
plied, "and as I am now. out of the army
I felt that I would be safe in reports?
He went on to say that it made no dif
ference how just the. complaint of a man
in the army might be, the man who made
it was sure to be hounded, foe-doing j so.
His experience In the mountains of Luzon
had convinced him of | this fact. _He and
his- men had been almost starved, Awhile
the officers of his company* were disposing
of the rations which should have-been is
sued to them. . ■—" - -.- .. ;-. . r
Returning to the question of. the treat
ment ;of J the Igbaras .. woman, 7 Senator
Beveridge asked the witness if he believ
ed " that the T officers I did \ violate her per
son. The witness said that : such .was his
belief, and that the enlisted men had sub
sequently mistreated - her. .7.7.. -
Protest From Patterson.
Mr. Patterson made a formal statement
to the effect'that he and Senator Rawlins
had : both protested against the introduc
tion of hearsay evidence alleging mal
treatment of a woman •by American offi
cers,7 and read the report 7. of Witness
O'Brien's first examination in confirma
tion of his statement. 7

RATE ON GRAIN-CUT
BY GREAT WESTERN
Western Officials Are Puzzled by the
- Announcement of- a Seven
- Cent Tariff.
Special to The Globe. *
CHICAGO, May 21.-Officials of 7 the
Western roads are -puzzling over a 7-cent
rate on grain from the Missouri river to
Chicago, which was -put in effect today
by the Great -7Western.. The rati is a
reduction of 5 cents, ana Great Western
officials claim that it; is due to the Kan
sas City, Guif situation. \ The rate be
tween . those | points has" been cut, it is
claimed, to.. a figure which, f minus the
usual differential from Kansas C'iy to
Chicago, would make f a 7-cent rate be
tween the latter points: --*' -
Traffic officials of other Chicago-Kansas
City roads are wondering if :some road
will take" the customary differential from
Kansas City to St. -Louis, which is 5
cents. If this is taken on the new rate
from Kansas: City to Chicago the rate
from Kansas City t-o St. Louis would be
2 cents. ' ' Jr '
Even though the gulf rate has been
lowered, attention is called to the fact
that there is no grain moving and is not
likely to be any for several months.

BAY CITY, Mich., May 21.— Michi

America has joined the three striking
anthracite districts of Pennsylvania in a
request to National President Mitchell for
a national convention of all the miners

If these demands are not granted by
June 2 then the men shah then suspend
work. Although tha instructions issued
to the local unions do not specifically say
that the men shall cease work on that
date if the demand is not granted, they
ar* so constructed by the cc-mmiUc-;m'_n.
This action was taken after two sessions
had b«.en neld, which consumed the entire
day. If; ■■■:_. .
At present the engineers, firemen and
pumpmen work ten hours a day. Some
of the fireman work twelve.
. The action _of the committee is not as
drastic as was looked for. Under the in
structions issued the protectors of the
mines, if granted the concessions, can
remain at work no matter how long tha
strike of the mine workers shall last.
Some of the radical com. Mit teem en want
ed them called out and kept out until all
the mine workers were satisfied, but the
conservative element was ... the majority.
7 As some of the coal companies have de
clared that" they will fill the places of
this class of .employes at any cost, if
they are called out on strike, the pros

As to the books of war, those who par

The Democratic state convention will
be held June .5, in the auditorium at Min

accredited delegates. The county con
ventions will be held Saturday, June 21.
The only candidate for governor under
consideration by the state central com
mittee is former Gov. John Llnd, of Min
The meeting of the Democratic state
central committee held yesterday at the
Mershants hotel was attended by fifty
members of the county represent
and executive committee. The chief work
of the meeting, which consisted of fixing
the convention date and the apportion
ment ci county representation, was dis
patched in an hour, In open session. Sev
eral subsequent executive sessions were
given over to discussion of the coming
campaign, a candidate for governor and
the political situation throughout the
state, as reported by the committeeman.
The formal call for he convention was
not completed tntil midnight.
The meeting was called to order In the
Merchants ordinary shortly after 2
o'clock by Chairman Rosing. Forty-three
counties were represented, and a major
ity of the members of the executive and
congressional- committees was present.
T. O'Connor, member for Renville county;
was chosen temporary secretary, and H.
T. Tolmie, of Fillmore county, was elect
ed permanent secretary, to succeed
George S. Caniield. fT-f
Discussion Is Hrief.
The discussion touching the date of tho
convention was brief. An almost exclu
give majority of the members was Inar
tily in favor of an early convention, a.-id
the most of the discusson was finished in
the hotel loby efre eothb t?r 'agndfin
the hotel lobby before the meeting was
called to order. Judge Willis, of St.
Paul, moved that the convention be held
in Minneapolis June 25, and his motion
was adopted without a dissenting vote.
The disposition of the apportionment
was accomplished with equal expedition.
The several counties will receive
one delegate for each 150 votes or maj'jr
fraction cast for Gov. Lind in i.iK), and
with the exception of Ramsey,' Hennepin
and St. Louis counties, three delegates-at
large. Humphrey Barton, St. Pan] se
cured the exception of the three big
counties from the blanket apportionment
of delegatej-at-large, subsequently get
ting five delegates-at-large for each. This
which Ramsey county gets 98, Hennepin
142, and St Louis 45 delegates.
Favor Temporary Ch.tirman.
The convention will be called to order
at noon, probably by a temporary chair*
man, who will sound the keynote of the
campaign. At yesterday's meeting there
was a strong sentiment in favor of a
temporary chairman and the executive
committee will undoubtedly suggest :!.<.
