FprlnTfield. Ills.. March . At yester
day's session of the Democratic confer
ence of central Illinois addresses were
made by General Alfred Orendorff. ot
thl city: A. n. Bentley, of Pittsfleld,
secretary of th? Democratic state cen
tral committee; Joseph Hodnett. of Lin
coln; Senator William la Mounts, of
Carllnville; John H. Baker, of Sulli
van; Captain I'. H. Harts, of Lincoln,
and former Senator Ben F. Caldwell,
Henry C. Boll and Mark Anthony (the
lart named colored), all of this city.
Resolutions wer adopted reaffirming
allegiance to the principlea enunciated
at the Chicago convention of l-'"5. and
emphasizing the free coinage of silver
at a ratio nf 1( to 16; favoring the re
nomination of William J. Bryan for
president In 1300.
The resolutions contrast the adminis
tration of Governor Altgeld with that
of Governor Tanner; condemn the na
tional administration "which consider
the Interest of the bondholder as of
more Importance than the national hon
or and the lives of the American sea
men;" denounce QaWStWC Tanner for
calling the special session of the legis
lature and that lady for passing the
reapportionment bill, and urge the
Democrats to put county and township
tiikete In the field In every county and
townahlp In the atate.
It was recommended that a uniform
basis of representation of one delegate
for each votes cast for Bryan for
prcslderrt. or fraction over 100, lie adopt,

Havana. March 9. Some persons, in
order to incraase the egeitement, art
urging General Fitzhugh Lee to resign,
but the onsul general of the United
States said to a correspondent yester
day. "I will stick by the ship of state
until the clouds roll by."
The court of Inquiry did little yea
terlay. Consul General Lee was very
briefly examined and also one diver.
Considerable time was spent en tho
wreck. Captain Sampson listened
patiently to various theories propound
ed by newspaper men ar.d others aa to
the causes of the explosion, and also to
atatemcnts as to hawser found In the
harbor and boiler Iron on the shore.
Evidently he attached little importance
to any of these storks. The Spanish
divers put in a good day's work, ex
amining chiefly the forward part of
the it reck, on the starUard side.
It will probably be wise, for some
time at least, to substitute something
for ondens.nl milk in the relief aup
plits hlM""i to Havana from the Unit
ed Statea. Since the distribution began
here the price per can has gone from
a down to s cents at the stores. The
recYinrcntradoe sell the cans or ex
change them for something wanted
mere than the milk. This applies only
to Havana. The outside cities need

LONDON 1 DITOItlM. COMMENT.
On the Adoption of the ranaao Sr.O.OOfi.
ooo I :, nt ion by the House.
London, March 9. The Morning Post
editorially commends the adoption of
the Cannon resolution by the house of
representatives and says: "It is an
emphatic way cf saying that American
statesmen intend to stand by their
4 l '.nratlons. People who talk about na
tional honor and responsibility ought to
be prepared to put their money down."
The Daily News says: "Speaking
generally, the I'niud States never are
pr pared for war. Tet It cannot be
raid that their diplomacy has suffered
from this palpaMe and notorious truth.
Therefore the ass. rtions of American
statesmen that they are voting 10,000,
Ot'O ($50,000,000). as a peace measure are
hardly a COalVlBM inc explanation of this
sudden chanice from trar.-iuil inactivity
to acute vifrilance,
"Our Washington correspondent has
obtained from a member of the execu
tive a positive assurance '.hat theMaine
disaster had nothing to do with the
vote. This Is a most important
declaration. Looking to the faet
that Pr widen t kfcKUUejr may not al
ways be al'le to control public opinion,
America and Spain would be wise to
find some honorable way out of a hope
less and discreditable deadlock."

criticises Washington over the Lee in

ks. ei to i ;r.v Itritain, to the Marquis
of Salisbury in connection with tho
HactcvfUe incident, to the effect that the
tTttttad State government assumed that
a request for the recall of the British
minister at Washington, Lord Saekville,
Was sutlicient. believing the acceptance
or retention of a minister to be a ques
tion solely to be flctet mined, with or
withotu the BSBignaaaBt of reasons, by
the g. v. n' to which he is accred
it, d. Truth says:
Spain has now demanded the recall
of Oaneral Lee, and it is officially pub
lished that the pKStdCnt will not take
Genetal Ejs rat ;". iato consideration.
The matter r h r :'. -,;s oa . for BOW it
Is obvious thrt the government of the
United Btnl does not consider itself
hound by International usage in the
conduct of dipt! matte relations wtth
other courtrles. It has distinctly laid
down it rule of a ti n which it imagined
to be binding upon it under such cir
cumstances, and therefore its refusal to
accede to th request of Spain stultilic3
It in the eyes of the whole world."
