Mrs. Catt, tho oloquont advocate of
woman suffrage, made a telling speech
before the legislature last evening and
was heard by an audience that crowded
evoiy foot of tho largo hall of the house.
Arguments logical, natural and convinc
ing, and justice and the cause of human
rights mutt ever be, says tho Phoenix
Herald. She left rnnuy of her audionce
wondering, not whether the full rights
of citizenship would ever he granted to
to the wivee, mothers, daughters and
sisters of our country, but wondering
that they had been so long suppressed;
.wondering that in an enlightened .go,
a civilized and intelligent governmet
should continue to treat women as hayo
the savago and barbarous tribes of .all
the ages gene. That Mr8, Catt opened
the eyes of some of our legislators and
more of our citizons, in a mattor whero
thoir barbarous inheritaace of a ten
dency to deny to woman a share in the
making of government, there is no ques
tion. Woman suffrage, Mrs. Catt inti
mated, is one of tho inevitable advances
of the age: is a moral growth along the
lines of higher civilization and cannot
bo stayed.- It it not merely a result of
agitation any more than 1 as been the
lifting of any great wrong in the gov
ernment of tho pant.

. Washington, Feb. ll.-Up to tho
close of office hours last night, General
Otis had sent no news to tho war de
partment indicating further conflicts
With tho natives Ho had few casuali-.
ties to report, these in answer to inquir
ies from anxious frieuds of ldividttal
soldiers, And he gave notica that he hud
been obliged to buy a large numbar wf
korscs to supply transportation needed
ovrinjfiq-the lengthening of the Amer
ican lines. .
, Secretary Alger fully expects that Otis
will make o terms with Agulnnltlo'
while tho lattor is under. jarms, -and-tlie
'contJitroubf' dealing wi.h him at all. is
the return of the insurgents to- their
homes aud the'surrendor. of their arms.
Certainly General Otis is not now ex
pected to take any action that will
amount to recogrition of tho insurgent
as a foe to be treated with on the basis
of an independent uaticn. There waa
also an absence of news from Iloiio and
it is believed that it will bj several
d'tys before anything is hecrdfrom that
Otis wired later: ''The insurgents
collected a considerable forco between
Manila and Culoocan, where Aguinaldo
is reported to be, and threatened an up
rising. 'We drove the enemy out easily.

THE COST OF CU3A.
Genera' Wood, speaking thro ih the
Committee of Military Affair.-, has iii
forinei the House that not inoio thaii
fifty per cent' of the Amarioan tronojH
in tho province of Santiairo aio fit fur
duty. The statement uin-hes onlv to
the province of Santiago as yet, for the
reason that this is the only part of the
island which has been occupied by
American troops long uuouirfi to test
their ability to etand the climate. The
troops uil't'er the .command of General
Wood have had no especial hardships
thiust upon thorn. They have had no
fighting to do, ttiuir principal service be

As yet there ha been no organized op

As the lecult of strong drink, another
killing has been recorded at San An
tonio, Texas, and two more men have
gone to render an account of their do
ings upon this earth. Both men leave
families to mourn their loss. Tho
"Pass City Independent" has the fol
lowing account of the sad affair: "Bob
Marx, an ex-ranger, .and proprietor of
a saloon on Laredo aud Commerce
h treat .in San Antonio, aud John Bwu
ett, proprietor of the Silver King,
Turf Exchange and Cotton Exchange
in San Antonio, were both shot, the
results from which they both nied in
that city Thursday morning. Jlarx
was drinking heavily, and had jubt
previous to the killing been released on
bond on a chargo ot firing a pistol in
his own saloon, and after liin release
he walked over to tho Silver King land
began a quarrel wth Bsnnctt. Ju3t
what passed between them is not
known, but eyo witnesses say that Ben
nett fired after he had fallen to the
floor. Neither party spoke after they
wero shot, though Bennet lived for
several hours after. Marx leaves a
wife and nine child ron. and Benneit
leaves a family.
