So far as the visit of Consul-General
Lee to Washington Is concerned, It
has no more significance than my
walking from tho war department to
my residence would have. There are
private matters demanding finnnr.ni
Lee's attention in this country and
he came home to attend to them.
Ho took advantage of this opportu
nity to enlighten the president as to
the condition of affairs and the exact
situation In Cuba.
"What the resident's intonHnm.
may be In this matter are known only
to himself, and the speculations
and surmises about proclamations ac

It can bo put down as a certainty,
however, that the president will pur
sue the same courso-in regard to Cuba
that has marked his administration,
regardless of clamor from the outside.
"It should be borne In mind, too,
that the president is by no means un
advised as to the people and condition
of Cuba, for at the close of of his first
administration he went down to the
island with a -patty of friends and
studied things very closely while hf
was there. There had been no com
munication between the president or
the fecretary of state and the repre
sentative of any foreign government
in regard to the Cuba situation, and
consequently no members of the

Tuere is a (inference or opinion In
diplomatic circles here from that ex
pressed by the secretary of war, and
members of tho diplomatic corps are
not at all backward about expressing
themselves. One of the leading for
eign representatives, who voices the
feclingsoof the Spanish government,
inclines to the belief that the presi
dent of the United States will make a
recommendation in line with the pol
icy already indicated in a former dis
patch. That course is to throw the
entire responsibility upon congress.
This diplomat has had Interviews
with Consul-General Lee, Sccretarr
Olney and the Spanish minister
within the last week, and he Is more
than ever convinced that nothing will
be attempted by the United States
before the reassembling of congress.
"It is not for any lack of sympathy
with the Cubans, "said the diplomatic
representative, "but because it does
not seem a proper time for the United
States to interfere'"
Another argument against the In
tervention by the United States in
Cuban affairs is that there is a ten)
dency on the part of the Cubans them
selves to oppose any fraternization
with the Anglo-Saxons.'
King Oscar Apolmed.
Washington, Nov. 10 The king of
Sweden and Norway, Oscar II, has
been chosen by treaty between tho
United Statse and Great Britan as the
fifth official arbitrators, four in num
ber, are to be designated, two by the
lordchclf justice of England, and two
by tho chelf justice of the United
States. This is the final and most
Important feature of the treaty for
complete adjustment of tho long
pending Venezeulan controversy. The
treaty was concluded In Washington
last night, at tho British embassoy,
Sir Julian Pauncefotc representing
her Britannic majesty, and secretary
Olney the United States.
The other essential feature of the
treaty Is that 60 years of actual pos
session Is to constitute .title. With
this limitation as to the settled dis
tricts, the entire sweep of the Vene
zuelean boundary is placed in the
hands of the court of arditration.
The treaty covers only the question of
general arbitration between the
UnltcdStatesand Great Britain is left
to future negotiation. Asa king sel
dom leaves his country, except on
state visits to other sovereigns, it Is
not expected that King Oscar II will
go outside of Sweden for the arbitra
tion, and the court is- likely to sit at
Stockholm, the capital of Sweden
where King Oscar's reksdag are located.

Celebrate Their Victory.
Sioux Falls, S. D., Nov. 11. Sen
ator Pettlgrew opened the campaign
of 1000 and addressed one of the larg
est audiences over gathered In this
city. It was announced as the begin
ning of tho bimctalllst' fight of four
years hence. The senator said that
ho would render McKlnley overy ala
possible for him to demonstrate that
the tariff was what ailed tho country,
but wanted to put himself on record
as saying that he would resist overy
action of a tariff on overy artlclo con
trolled by a trust. This created n
sensation, and tho demonstration
that followed was tremendous. Tho
senator was given a great reception
at the close of his speech.
