120 STATE STREET,
Washington. Dec.18. The sen
ate passed immigration bill, known
as the Lodge bill with a new section
providing that exclusion shall not ap
ply to persons arriving from Cuba
during the continuance of the present
disorder there. The strength of the
bill .was greater than had been ex
pected, the. final vote being 52 to 10.
As passed, the bill amends the immi
gration laws so as to exclude from ad
missoin to the United States all per
sons, oyer l(i years old, who cannot
read and write the language of their
native country or some other language
but an admissable immigrant, over
the age of 16, may bring in with him,
or send for, his parent, or grand-parent,
or minor children, orgrand-chlld,
notwithstanding their inability to
read and write.
For the purpose of testing the ina
bility of an immigrant to read or
write as reouired bv the foreuolnt
section, the Inspection olllcers shall
be furnished copies of the constitu
tion of the United States, printed on
numbered pasteboard slips, each con,
taining live lines of the constitution
printed in the various langugcs of Immigrants.
These slips shall be kept in boxes
made for that purpose and so con
structed as to conceal the slips from
view, each box to contain the sllpsgf.
but one language, and the Immigrant
nfay dislgnate the language in which
he prefers the test shall be made.
Each immigrant shall be required to
draw one of these slips from the box
and read, and afterwards write out
in full view of the immigration of
Hcersrthe five lines printed thereon
No immigrant, failing to read and
write out the slip thus drawn by liim
shall be admitted; but he shall be
returned to the county whence he
came, at the expense of the railroad or
steamship which brought him, as now
provided by law.
The Cuban question, added to the
bill, provides that the act shall not
apply to any persons arriving in the
United States from any port or place
in Cuba during the continuance of
the present disorders there, provided
such persons have heretofore been In
habitants of the island.
The Immigrant measure now goes
into conference, the bill passed today
being a substitute for the Corliss-Mc
Call bill passed by the house. On mo
tion of Hale the senate today agreed
that when It adjourned it would be
until next Monday.
THE ARMY DILL PASSCD.
The house passed the third
of the regular appropriation bllls(that
for the sunoort of the array) and en
tered upon the consideration of the
legislative, executive and judicial
bills. The lattor bill carries $21,009,
309 or $20,399 more than tnelawfor
current year. It Is expected that this
bill, and the military academy appro
priation bill, will be passed before
the holiday recess. The army bill as
passed, makes noprovission rortno

reconsideration of the vote by which
the senate- agreed to adjourn until
Monday, in order it, Is understood,to
permit of an opportunity to, pre
sent a report tomorrow on uw
Cameron resolution, in case one Is
agreed upon by the committee. Tl.o

after a conference with Senator
Cameron. The -friends of the reso '

the adjournment of the senate until
Monday next might have the effect of
delaying a report until after the ad
journment had been decided upon.
They then concluded, that, as these
tactics would leave only two days be
fore the holidays, their mcasurs
might be crowded out until well Into
It is stated that Secretary Olney
will go before the senate committee
on foreign relations today and give a
great deal of confidential information
relative to Cuba.
It Is the expectation of all members
of the committee that a vote will Ixj

tion declaring for Cuban Independ-
ence. Jrleiidsof the resolution have
no doubt it will reetlye the approval
of the majority.
The intention of the majority of the
members of the committee on foreign
relations, who Intend to vote for the
Cameron resolution, Is to report the
resolution todayandshowltto remain
on the senate calendar until after the
hoi lkay recess. So confident are the
advocates of tho Cameron resolution
of success that the committee has al
ready prepared a report dn the subject,

Albany, Or., Dec. 18. The boldest
forgery case eyer known In this state,
has come to light In this city. In
July last a stranger giving the name
of Henry C. Brlggs, filed with the
recorder a deed from A. S. Knox, of
San Jose, Cal., conveying to Brlggs a
fine farm of 318 acres of land In Linn
county. A few days after tins Brlggs
mortgaged the farm to the Alliance
Trust Co., borrowing $1,200. Ho then
left the city. It now transpires that
the deed was bogusj the names of Mr.
and Mrs. Knox and also those of the
witnesses and the notary balng forged.
A suit was begun by Knox's attorneys
to set aside the fraudulent deed.
A Correction. Thefollowlngcom
raunlcation was received from tho
captain of the Albany Tornado foot
'Mr. Editor. In your paper you
mentioned the Cyclones' visit to Al
bany. You made a statement which
is calculated to mislead. You used
this expression. "The only incident
which marred the pleasure of the trip
and which apparently could not be
avoided was the theft of the Salem
boy's belongings while the game was
In progress.. Although we do not
deny that something of this kind un
fortunately occurred yet we together
with the Salem boys, will say that
nothing dishonorable was done by an
Albany boy. The Albany tioys wero
also losers. If necessary the names of
Captain and members of the Cyclone
team together with that of the referee
from Salem can be obtained to this
statement. We are not trying to
throw mud. We merely want things
to be understood. The Salem boys
play u good clean game; they arc
worthy of Imitation in this respect."
Key West, Fla,, Dec. 18. Passen
gers from Cuba -report that General
Pratt wired General Weylcr from tho
province of Matanzas that he had an
engagement with Antonio Macco's
forces'ed by Maceo himself, and upon
receipt of the telegram festivities In
progress In Havana to celebrate the
death of Maceo were ordered sus
pended. The passengers further stated that
a newspaper reporter who went to
Puhta Brava had an interview with
who told him that Maceo was at the
hcaa of his army and moving
towards Orientc. He stated that he
accompanied Maceo to Matanzas,
where he left him. Maceo was suffer

Cincinnati, Dec. 18. A special to
tho Commercial-Tribune from Key
Fassengers by tonight's steamer
from Havana state that rumors of
lighting near the trocha wero rife in
Havana today. The movements of
troops In the streets wero more fre
quent than usual, Indicating impor
tant operations under way.
The reports in Havana thgt Maceo
Is not dead have bewildered the peo
ple. All the newspapors stato that
this matter mut bo sifted out and
settled at once. They call upon
olllclals to have Macco's and young
Gomez1 bodies exhnmed and brought
to tho city for identification. AH tho
papers say that the present sensational
accounts and rumors Injnro tho Span
ish cause. Cubans are still divided in
opinion, though the general belief is
that Maceo is dead.
Reports from Matanzas cannot be
explained upon the theory that some
of Macco's old army, under tho com
mand of Ruls IMvcra, is operating
there, and then it is wondered why hg

and the espionage over all American

1a known that the olllclals feel
greatly worried over tho state of
affairs around Matanzas, but whether
it Is Gomez or III vera who Isopcratlug
there is hard to determine.

mounted on the outer seawalls of a

Dallas.Dcc. 18. The report that
United States Marshal Love has con
templated a raid on local Cuban head
quarters Is an error. Hearing that
the local Cuban organization contem
plated equipping men for Cuba.
Marshal Lovo called at their head
quarters and Informed tho ofllcers
that such action is a violation
of law. Thereupon tho ofllcers of the
club issued an open letter declaring
their purpose was to give moral aid to
the Cubans through congress.and that
under no circumstances should any
movement looking to tho formation of
a company be tolerated.
There wero no warrants Issued.
Marshal Lovo merely warned tho
leaders against a possible Infraction of
Postonico Inspector J. A.Gordon.who
was In Salem, received a dispatch tills
morning Informing him that tho
Oregon City postoulco had been
robbed of everything in tho Bhapo of
valuables. Not a Htamp was left in
tho place, and It Is probable that tho
loss-Is In tho neighborhood of $1,000.
The night before, Wednesday night,
the ofllco at Hubbard was robbed.
The men who did tho work wero like
ly experts at tho business, and prob
ably the same men who did tho work
at Oregon City. At Hubbard they
demonstrated great precaution by
fastening the front door of the olllco
and barricading tho passago to tho
post otllcc with nail kegs to prevent
being surprised beforo they could got
out of tho back door which they had
entered. The two safes In tho olllco
wero cracked and rifled, and when In
spector Gordon saw tho work they
had done, ho remarked that there
would probably bo another robbery
somewhere tho next night. Ills
prophecy proved too true, and thero
is little doubt but the same men did
