Hawaiian Treaty Tomorrow
Washington, Jane 15 It can be
unequivocally stated at a result of
today's cabinet meeting that no im
portant action relating to Cuba will
be taken till the new minister to
Madrid has been chosen and is at his
post. Tbis means some weeks must
lapse before any vital step wiU be
taken In the matter of the Cuban
aitnatlon. The president is appar
ently no nearer a solution of the
problem of sccoriag a satisfactory
man for the Spanish mission than
heretofore. The delay is somewhat
vexatious to tfce administration,
which is anxious to begin the nego
tiatioos looking to the amelioration
of the condition of affairs in Cuba as
speedily as possible.

Will Dlacama a Shorter Work-Day and
Other 4aetion of Interest.
Detroit, June 15. Men who manipu
late printing prerses from nearly all the
larger cities of America gathered in the
Gri.'.wold House last night and enjoyed
social reception preliminary to the
ninth annual convention. Refreshments
were served and there- were informal
welcomes by local members - and re
sponses by visiting delegates. Nearly
100 delegates have arrived, many of
them accompanied by ladies. The busi
ness eerslons begin today. The two
principal questions being disrupted are
action towards a shorter work-day and
final settlement regarding the admis
sion of Job pressmen, feeders, and help
ers to full membership in the union.
The latter clawes have hitherto been
affiliated as auxiliary to the Pressmen's
union, and at the last convention action
was taken allowing them admlreicn to
full memlterphip. This, however, has not
been carried out by the local unions, and
a means of enforcing last year's action
in this regard will be urged.
