Jean Richepin's Career.
Tho story of how he came to adopt a
1 i terary career igsufficien t ly rji cturesque.
For some timovhe had picked np a pre
carious livelihood by doing "odd jobs,"
including such prosaic occupations as
that of bootblack and casual porter on
tho Qi i Marseilles. One day he was
engaged by a Kcntlcman to carry to the
railway station a heavy trunk. Arrived
at the station, there was an instant
mutual recognition. They were old col
lege chuius. "What are yon doing
here?" asked his friend. "Carrying
yonr trunk. I believe," said Jeun.
"Why do yon do this?" "Because I
must." " WfTere do yoa live?" "Come
and sec," replied Richepin.
The future dramatist took his friend
to Lis dwelling a miserable room in an
attio in the poorest quarter of the town.
Upon the table lay scattered heaps oft
manu-scrtpbs Jean s incursions in the
realms of poetry when the more prosaic
dnries of the day were over. Looking
throGgh them, his friend waa astounded
at their quality. "Why do yon carry
trunks and blacken boots when yon can
do work like this?"' he asked. Richepin
had never given the matter a thought;
he had never dec-rncd these products of
idle hours worthy cf publication. Pub
lished they were, however, in a very
few weeks and created an immense
sensation. From that moment Jean
Richepin has never looked back. West

DAVIS III CONFERENCE
Senator Sees .the President and
Talks Over Conditions of
Peace With Spain.
ALSO HAS A TALK WITH DAY.
Bettlement of the Philippines Question the
Subject of the Discussion American
Terms To Be Formnlated at Other Con
ferences of the Three Centlemen
Scheme That Is Alleged to Have the In
side Track with the President Davis
Declines to Talk for Publication.
Washington, Aug .25. Senator Davl3,
chairman of the senate committee on
foreign relations, and selected as a
member of the commission to nego
tiate terms of peace with Spain, ar
rived in Washington yesterday. He
went to the White House very soon
after his arrival, and remained with
the president for an hour. The' con
ference was of -a preliminary character,
and was devoted largely to the great
question which the administration will
have to settle of control of the Philip
pines. Afterwards Davis went to the
state department and saw Secretary
Day, who is also to be, a member of
the peace commission. Davis will re
main in Washington two or three days,
and the terms of peace for the Ameri
can side win be formulated as far as
possible in the conferences which will
occur between the president, the secre
tary cf state and the chairman of the
foreign relations committee.
Alleged Idea of the President.
These preliminaries will be of great
importance, us all the diplomatic ques
tions, the examination of old treaties,
the many poirts to be involved in the
new treaty, of necessity will have to be
thoroughly considered by the commis
sioners. There was a good deal of talk
yesterday about an alleged presidential
plan for the solution of the Philippine
problem, which was as follows: Re
tention by the United States of the
island of Luzon, on which the city of
Manila is situated; equal trade facili
ties with Spain in the remaider of the
Philippine group; n.-rie of the islands to
be disposed of to any foreign nation;
the severance of all exist-ing relations
between church and state in the entire
Philippine group. The president's de
sire for the separation of church and
state'in the .Philippines is understood to
be based ' especially upon the remark
able situation in the Islands. The friars
and priests are maintained in authority
ny ae bpanisa government, paid out of
the revenues of th . gwernment. and
art Intrusted with the task of preserv
ing Spanish rule in the islands.
Don'sSedineI to Talk.
This may be correct or It may be pure
speculation. Davis refused absolutely
to discuss with newspaper men any of
the question growing out of the war, or
the subjects which -might likely come
before the commission. He would
neither express his own views nor dis-
CHss the sentiment of the people of his
own state or other sections respecting
the Philippines, the government of
Porto Rico or the management of af
fairs in Cuba. Davis briefly referred
to the success of the war and the
achievements of the American soldiers
and sailors in the different battles
which occurred. Ife waa especially
gratified at the gallant conduct of the
Thirteenth Minnesota in the battle of
Manila, and while here made arrange
ments with the war department for
bringing home the remains of Captain
BJornstad. of that regiment, who died
of wounds since the battle was fought.
Many members of the regiment are per
sonal friends of the senator.
RELATIONS WITH THE CUBANS.
Junta in This Country Itnoy Trying to
Make Thjm Amicable.
Washington. Aug-. 23. The representa
tives of the Cubans in the fnited States
are still making every effort to secure
the disbandment of the Cuban forces
and acquiescence in the policy of the
United States in Cuba. Letters are be
ing sent and arguments made to the
Cuban leaders pointing out that the in
terests of the Cubans lie in co-operation
with the United Ftates authorities.
Little or no information has been re
ceived as to what effect these- repre
sentations will have upon the leaders
In Cuba, but it Is believed that amicable
relations can be brought about when
the Cubans are persuaded that It is to
their interest to accept the situation as
the protocol leaves it.
Negotiations have been opened
through diplomatic channels by which
it is expected that the Spanish govern
ment will co-operate with the authori
ties here in the removal of the mines
and torpedoes In Havana harbor before
the military commission assembles
there, the naval authorities believing
this to be a proper precaution before
any of our naval ships enter the harbor
with the commissioners. The sug
guestlon was made through the state
department, and has been forwarded to
the Spanish government through the
French embassy. There is little doubt
the matter will be arranged.
Madrid. Aug. 25. The minister for
war. Lieutenant General Correa, when
asked what instructions had been given
General li-anco in regard to opposing
the insurgents In Cuba, replied that he
had ordered the captains general of
Cuba and the Philippines to act In ac
cord with the Americans; but if the
Americans should prove unable to make
the insurgents respect the armistice,
then the instructions were to repel by
arms any attack upon the Spaniards

Thinks There Is a Problem There and Also
St. Paul. Aug. 25. Senator M. A.
Htnna. of Ohio, arrived in the city yes
terday evening on the Northern Pacific
arter a trip tnro-:gh leiiow stone park.
In an interview with a reporter for the
St. Paul Globe Hanna said: "The
Philippines la a problem we- cannot
aolve in a hurry. We of course must
cetAln jl coaUCK station there, .but I do
3srft"tj?!nK n- jmeiy "we snail want mora
than Manila and itsk harbor.
"Cuba is another problem. I never
was much of a Cuban, and am not pre
pared to commit myself as to the policy
we should pursue there. We propose to
establish a stable government in that
island, but what constitutes a stable
government bas not yet been defined.
I think, however, that Cuba will be an
evolution, and ir about twenty years it
will be so thoroughly Americanized
that tbece will be no question as to
what a stategovernment means. I do not
think there will be a formal alliance
with England." He thought McKinley
would succeed himself In the presi
Issue of Teraeity as to Cubans.
New York. Aug. 23. Brigadier Gen
eral Joaquin D. Castillo, who accom
panied General Shafter to Cuba as the
representative of the Cuban army, re
turned a few days ago on one of the
government transports to Montauk
Point, and he bas submitted his report
to the Cuban junta in this city. Gen
eral Castillo made a statement con
cerning the disagreement at Santiago
between General Shafter and General
Calixto Garcia, In which he alleges that
the American commander voluntarily
promised to turn over the city to the
Cubans when it was captured, and then
broke that promise. General Castillo
makes a denial of all the charges that
have been made against the Cubans.
Wisconsin Regiments Ordered Home.
Madison, Wis., Aug. 23. Governor

central Cuban relief committee appoint
ed by the president distributed foods,
medicines and general supplies to the

value of 321.619.

here from Cuba, congratulating them
upon their conduct in the field and say
ing that she purposed tq be the first to

iff at Pana. Ills., stating that 150 im
ported negro miners had arrived to go
