Madrid, Dec. 21. Senor. Canovas
del Castillo had a long Interview with
the Duke of Teutan, .minister of for
eign affairs, and Admiral Beranger,
minister of marine. The subject of
discussion was kept a secret, but It Is
understood that the members of the
Spanish cabinet are considering the
introduction, In the near future, of
political -and administrative reforms
fop the colonics of Cuba and Porto
Rico. Such action, if taken, it Is be
lieved, will lead to a reconstruction of
Senor Canovas del Castlllo.ln an in
tervicw.sald he knew through the me
dium of cablegrams received rromMIn

ing to the Independence or Cuba would
be adopted by the UnitedStates senate

. H-iuou uaM While In
wungiu'js viu eventually pass resolu
tions of this' character, even though
opinion may influence the American
congress. Senor Castillo expresses a
doubt whether It will be able to In
fluence the other brandies of the Uni
ted States government and President
Spain, so far, according to Premier
Canovas del Castillo, is satisiled with
the situation. Senor Castillo was of
the opinion that the secretary of state
had supported the cause of Internat
ional law with wisdom. Tho holidays,
he thought, would give congress time
for reflection. If however, the members
of theUnltedStateshouseof represen
tatives und senate persist in the atti
tude shown by the senate committee
on foreign affairs, Senor Canovas del
Castillo said that he had reason to be
lieve the president of the UnitedStates
would Interpose a veto, thus compel
ling the reiritioductlonof resolutions
favoring Cuban Independence, all of
which would take time.
Senor Castillo made the significant
and Important statement during the
course of the Interview that the recog
nition of belligerency and even the
independence of the Cubans, need not
necessarily be considered caucus belli;
but, nevertheless, he thought any
such" action on the part of the United
States government could not fail to
have its effect on the Spanish nation.
The governmentof Spain, he Insisted,
would determine for Itself whatcoursc
to pursue. Energetic action would
not be flacking, hei added, but he
thought It necessery that the govern
ment's action should not bo embar
rassed by manifestations.
In conclusions. Premier Castillo as
serted that the coursoRf events would
Indicate, before a conflict could arise,
.whether or not it would be necessary
to convoke a session of the cortcs.

Guthrie, O. T ., Dec. 21. There Is
great excitement at Cloud Chief over
a confession made by a young man
under arrest for killing Alva Tripp,
tho farmer found murdered In bed
last Sunday morning, to the effect
that he committed tho murder to get'
Christmas money, and secured $1.40.
He says he is one of a gang organized

Fort Sott, Kan., Dec. 21. Late
this evening, While on their way to
make a call, William B. Reuo and
daughter, Mrs. May Bryant, were shot
and probably fatally wounded by
George Bryant. Bryant approached
them and asked If he could speak to
his wife, wliO'recentlylef-b home. Reno
replied "No," at which Byrant com
menced to shoot, Mr. Reno was shot
in the right breast and back, while
Mrs. Bryant received two bullets In
the back Just under tho shoulder.
Bryant fled after the shooting, and at
mianigiiL was sun at, large. The
would-be murderer Is about 35 years

and some companions to bo Insane.
Iuxisuoko, Dec. 21. At a
hour, last night, tho Jury in
Steovescasc had not returned a
diet. It stood ten"' for acquittal
two for conviction.1 There teems
little hope of a decision being reached.
When Judge MeHrlde,. on Friday
afternoon, charged the Jury, and ex
plained, that, unless a verdict was
rendered by fl o'clock, In time for him
to take the northbound train,- he
would havo to leave for St. Helens, It
was nopeu unit ocroro mat nour an
agreement might bo reached. This
did not prove to be the case.
The first ballot showed clghtof the
Jurors for acquittal and four for con
viction. This was the vote, It Is re
Sorted, untlll yesterday nfternoon,
when those who favored acquittal
gained two more votes, thojury stand
ing 10 to 2.
The two Jurors supposed to be stand
ing out for conviction are William
Bagley and J. C. Cooper, and, from
the well-known character of both
men, no one knowing them believes
that they will surrender their llrst
convictions, and, In the end, a mis
trial Is altcgathcr likely to bo the re
sult. A great amount of interest is shown
In Portland overthe result of tho trial.
Mr. Stcoves' friends have stood by him
from the first, and in addition he Is a
member of several different orders, tho
members of which alsost'ood by him.
Estimates of the cost of the Stecves
trial to Multnomah county rango from
$2500 to $4000. Brokers bought up war
rants to tho extent of $2500 at a lucra
tive discount. Thero were 03 witnesses
most of them for the prosecution.
