the charge t hat Representative T.cfs
ler. of New York, one of the members
of the naval committee, had been ap
proached with a bribe of ?r.(Mi for his
support of a preposition looking to an
appropriation for additional sub-marine
torpedo boats, with a view to as
certaining whether there is sutlicient
warrant for the committee to ask the
house to order a regular investigation
of the matter. The sensational charge
was made by Lesslcr himself at a
meeting of M:e naval affairs commit
tee yesterday afternoon.
Charge Too Scrlon. to Ignore.
The i-t'.cstion of the Holland torpedo
boats was up and I.essler. who wnr
opposing the authorization of addition
al boats, told the committee that he
hail bi-cn approached with a bribe,
if is statement startled the i-ommiite-.
and several members, among them
l'utlerof Pennsylvania and Roberts of
Massachusetts, immediately suggested
that so serious a charge should be i n
estigatiil immediately. After some
discussion Wheli r of Kentucky of
fered a resolution, which was adopt
ed, to appoint a sub-committee to in
vestigate at once and to report to the
Committee Appoint! to Inquire.

Callom Sure the Treaty VVill Win Trou
ble About the Isle of IMoen.
Washington. Jan. 21. CuIIoni. chair
man of the senate committee on for
eign relations, had a conference with
tin' president yesterday concerning the
pending Cuban reciprocity treaty. That
the treaty will be ratified Culloni ful
ly lielicves. in common with other lie
publican senators: but it is realized
by the senate leaders that there Is
some disposition to opjioso the treaty
with the omnibus statehood bill. Advo
cates of the statehood measure are
willing to support the treaty, but they
want a vote on their measure, and
are inclined to effect an arrangement
involving a vote at an early date ori
Another ditliculty has arisen in Cu
ba. A telegram from Havana explains
it as follows: "The United Statcsana
residing in ihe Isle of Pines deny the
general Assumption of tin ' Cuban gov
ernment that the I'nited States lias no
"j-pce!:;l interest in the island and that
' it is not likely to insist on the event

they seem confident of having the sup

of the ownership of the island. .
"Recently the I'nited Statesau resi
dents of th Island unitedly notified
the alcalde of the Isle -of Pines and
the Cuban coveniment of their inten

the collection of tacs. or any as,

"It docs not surprise m,. t learu
that our old friend is dead." said Mc-
Ctitcheon yesterday. "A death by
cholera in that island is not a rare
thing. I became quite well acquainted
with this Mohammedan monarch and
it is just possible that had not General

to make the first trip ever nttt-midcd

-McCutchi'on proi-oeditl as follow
"General Pates had been sent to Jolo
to get K Irani to sign a treaty. Mr
Pass, and myself accompanied him in
the gunboat .Manila. The sultan would
not trust himself to come to Jolo. Then
we sailed around to Maihun. but the
monarch was firm. lie would have
nothing to do with the I'nited states,
"Finally Mr. Pass and myself ob
tained General Rates permission to
make the overland trip. We found a
Xubian. a Mohammedan faT" from
home, who spoke a little Knglish and
the Sulu dialect and hired him for in
terpreter. We took several friendly
natives for guides and carried our
mis beneath cur clothes. The .Nubian
lost his nerve after we had traveled
fi few miles and we offered him up to
'?20 Mex' to continue. That was a
pil' of money in his sight. Hut he
said the sultan would , kilT 4ilm for
bringing Americans to hitown.
"The crowds of natives were get
ting larger and the k rises seemed to
be everywhere. We could not back
out. So we forced the Xubian. whom
we placed between us. to continue. Ar
riving at Maihun. we were the center
of a great throng of murilcrnns-look-ing
subjects of the sultan. Appar
ently our unarmed and defenseless con
dition no guns were exhibited was
our salvation, for none of the terrible
knives were lunged at us.
"When we were ushered into the
throne room there sat the sultan. He
wore a white gown and a whiteturban.
The Xubian told him we were the rep
resentatives of till tin American people

WILL SETTLE THE MATTER
Chicago National Dank Will Pay the Re

Xiles. Mich.. Jan. 21. The First Xa
tional bank, of Chicago, lias notified
the receiver of the defunct First Xa
tional Lank, of Xiles. that it would ac
cept an adverse verdict of the federal
court of appeals and settle with the
nveivcr the claim he holds as a re
sult of the Chicago concern having
paid i;.(nmi on the local bank's out
standing drafts aftcr its failure. The
receiver at the time of the failure noti
fied the Chicago bank, which was a
correspondent of the Xiles institution
not to pay the oralis.
Following a decision of the Illinois
supreme court the Chicago batik i
noriHl i no receivers notice. I lie re
ceiver then sued the bank in the fed
eral circuit court and won Ihe case.
The Chicago bank appealed and the re
ceiver won again. It threatem-d to
take the case to the supreme court,
but the receiver's permission to allow
it to prove its claim as a general cred
itor brought an end to the lawsuit.
Suspend! 12 K Judjcment. -
A keen critic once said to a young wo
man about to legin tlie stuuy or paint
ing: "When you look at a picture, do
not say at first. een to yourself. T like
it. or 'I .don't like it.' Try to see what
there is in it."
The advice was sound, and it need
not le stretched thin to cover a much
larger region of life than that which
belongs to art. The quick, instinctive
like or dislike which many a woman
conceives in the first hour or ner ac
quaintance with a person may be well
founded or it may be ill founded. If it
justifies itself, she remembers it and
prides herself on her knowledge of hu
man nature; if it proves false, she for
gets all about it and in a year would
deny that she had ever disliked the
person, or at best she would defend her
mistake by quoting. " "Tis safest
to"begin with a little aversion."
In point of fact, the power of sus
pending judgment on book, picture,
man, woman or plan is the mark of a
well trained mind. The judgments
worth anything are based ou something
stronger than "a woman's reason I
think him so because I think him so."
Lincoln Saw a Way.
A' young sergeant distinguished him
self by his gallantry at Donelson and
was recommended for promotion. He
was summoned to appear lefore a mil
itary board at Washington and closely
questioned by West Point graduates.
None of his answers was satisfactory.
When the report reached President Lin
coln, he lidseted for a moment, laid the
paper on his desk, then, taking one
gaunt knee in his hands, said: "I don't
know what to do with this case. Here's
a young felcy who k"ows nothing of
the science or-23f battles. He doesn't
even know the technical name of the
fortification on which he ran up the
stars and stripes in the face of the en
emy." He thought a moment, then in
dorsed the report:
