DESTRUCTION OF THE MAINE. Hernandez issues Another Attack Upon Bresnes, Charging Him With Blowing Up the United States Battleship. The Editor Tells His Readers to Be Patient, as in Due Time They Will Get the Facts Re garding the Explosion Which Resulted in the Death of So Many Americans. HAVANA, Jan. 4 — Senor Recido Ar nauta y Hernandez, ex-editor of "El Reconcentrade," issued to-day a third attack upon his old enemy, Zacarias Bresnes, whom, with three others, he accused of blowing up the United States battleship Maine. Bresnes, who is a lawyer and politician, sailed for Spain about two weeks ago. The installments of the story thus far have been de voted to the alleged felonies and treach eries of Bresnes. The editor tells his readers to be patient, as in due time they will get the facts regarding the Maine explosion. He describes his proof as "largely moral." The afternoon papers to-day sent a thrill through the city with a report that a torture and execution chamber had been found at the residence of the Spanish Military Governor adjoining the palace. The papers declared that there the Spanish officials questioned and murdered political prisoners. Ac cording to their accounts, the floor of the chamber was covered with dried blood and its walls were indented with machete 6trokes. An excited crowd soon gathered outside the house, which was last occupied by General Parrado. The reported torture chamber is a room eaght feet square, just off the dining room. As a matter of fact, it was probably used as a pantry. In the wall there is a dirty iron bar, evidently us-4d to hang meat on, and a piece of discolored rope is suspended from it. It is inconceivable that General Par rado practiced torture next to his din ing room. General Sanger, who is in command at Matanzas, has issued a proclama tion there on the lines of the one is sued by Governor General Brooke. It has been favorably received. The United States flag has been rais ed over Cienfuegos custom-house, and Senor Pedro Hernandez appointed May or. The gunboats fired a national sa- lute to the flag. For purposes of better military con trol the suburbs of Havana have been placed under General Ludlow's com mand, and the detached companies of volunteers and police in the suburbs have been removed from General Pitz hugh Lee's command to General Lud low's. General Ludlow has Issued an order forbidding 1 "immoral dances" in the theaters and the circulation of indecent literature. He has dismissed all the clerks in the office of the Secretary Gen eral to the late autonomist government, with the exception of Senor Benjamin Stimpf=<on. To-day a deputation of hankers, in cluding Senor Abella, Governor of the Bank of Spain, called upon General Brooke to inquire whether the United States Treasury rulings as to cash for customs applied to other business They were directed to put their questions in •writing for reference to Washington. The main point is -whether holders of American drafts must accept the cen ter,* at the rate of $4.82, or can exact United States currency. If the former Is required, some tw-enty millions in Spanish gold will stay i:: Cuba. The bankers are desirous to replace Span ish currency with American, and are anxious for an immediate settlement of the point raised. The price of silver is not affected by the Treasury rulings. Although the custom-house only values a tilver dol lar at GO cents in silver, the bankers pay at least 70 cents. There are ten millions in silver here, which will prob ably leave gradually. Captain Sigsbee of the United States battleship Texas gave a breakfast on board the battleship to-day to tleneral Brooke. The contract for the poiioe uniforms has been awarded, and it is expected that the force will be ready by Febru ary Ist. General Maximo Gomez has issued an order directing the Cuban officers who are absent, from their commands to re join them. The order his not been obeyed in the provinces of Puerto Prin cipe and Santa Clara. MISSOURI TRAIN ROBBERY. The Amount Stolen Put as High as Twenty Thousand Dollars. KANSAS CITY.

NEW YORK, Jan. 4.—The police have three men under surveillance in con nection with the Adams-Cornish pois oning, and would have arrested one or all of them, had it not been for the fact that none of these suspects has a light beard. Miss Miller, the saleswoman who sold the match-holder In Newark, is positive that the purchaser had a light beard. It is said that should the police) discover that any* of the suspects purchased a false beard, an arrest would immediately follow, and that the police would then believe that they had a good chance to secure the conviction of Mrs. Adams' murderer. Professor Wittehaus, who has been analyzing the contents of the bottle out of which Mrs. Adams drank, to-day made his report to the District Attor ney. Professor Wittehaus says def initely that the poison in the bottle sent to Cornish was cyanide of mer cury, and that he believes the sender of the poison must have been either a chemist or one with an intimate knowl edge of chemicals. Professor Witte haus also says that the bottle contain ing the poison was not a bromo-seltzer bottle, though a label taken from a regular bromo-seltzer bottle had been pasted over this bottle. All the suspects are said to be men ■who had grudges against Cornish. HULL MILITARY BILL. Will Increase the Cost to $57,710, --710.

The weather was muggy and the atmosphere heavy, which affected him unfavorably, and caused renewed fears that in his weakened state the best efforts of the physicians might not avail to save him.

Belief That Mrs. Lucretia Kent Was Murdered. SPRINGFIELD (111.). Jan. 4.—Devel opments since the finding' of the body of Mrs. Lucretia Kent at her home Sunday night have led to the suspicion that she was murdered, and John Fuchs, said to have been her paramour, is locked up in jail, pending investi gation by the officers. Mrs. Kent's body was found in her house, in the fashionable residence dis trict of Springfield. The woman's right hand had been caught beneath the springs of a folding bed, and there she had been held a prisoner until she starved to death. An examination of the body resulted in the finding of marks on the throat to indicate that Mrs. Kent had been choked. Other bruises were also found. It is the theory of the police that Fuchs and the woman quarreled; that the man struck her; that the folding bed was pulled down in the scuffling, and pinioned the woman's arms; that in a rage Fuchs left the house without releasing her, and that she slowly died from hunger. Fuchs and Mrs. Kent are said to have quarreled frequently. CABLE COMPANIES' CLAIMS. A Subject Which is Now Puzzling the State Department. WASHINGTON, Jan. 4.—Another dis agreeable consequence of the late vvar has been presented to the Government of claims from the cable companies for damages sustained through the suspen sion of their business by the United States military and naval forces. The aggregate amount of these claims cannot be foretold. The companies in each case base their claims on the number of days of interruption to business, estimating the lass each day by the records of buFinese transacted in correspond;ng periods in former years. The State Department is puzzled in dealing with these claims. There is no exact precedent for them, and it is realiz>?d that we must make some more international law to meet the case.

They Were Turned Away From the Foundling Home. Chief Dwyer has the little neglected Douglas children on his hands again, owing tb the fact that the management of the Foundling Home at Ninth and U streets has refused to take care of them. The family was taken up on© day last week because those who had been en trusted with their care—one Gibson and his wife—had grossly neglected them and kept them on miserable food in a hovel hardly fit for beasts. Gibson, who married one of the Douglas girls, sells pickles and other condiments. The father of the children, who is in jail in Placer County for assaulting one of his own girls, hired Gibson to care for the children at $15 a month, but Gib son, it is said, compelled them to live on scraps of food picked up in alleys. Chief Dwyer found no beds, tables) or other conveniences in the hovel where the family lived, and the windows of the place had all been knocked out, so he took the family of three to the sta tion and thence to the Foundling Home. There is a boy, not yet ti years oX age, and two little girls. The officers at the Police Station last night made complaint that the Found ling Home people had refused the chil dren because their clothing and per sons were not in a cleanly condition. The officers say that they have not proper facilities for keeping such chil dren, and that if the children who go to homes of this character must all be well clothed and groomed it will be hard to find any place for Euch neglect ed waifs as the Douglas children. Officer Healy of the Children's So ciety has taken the eldest girl to his home for the present and is trying to find a proper and permanent home for her. To-day he will take the little ones, if possible, to the County Hospital. Mr. Healy tells also of a paralytic, named St. Clair, who has a family of six children at Oak Park, who are sadly in need of attention. The county once paid to send the family East, but they are all back again, with the usual an nual increase. RAILWAY EMPLOYES' CLUB. Business Meeting and Presentation to a Fellow Workman.

There was a little incident in the line of march to the Capitol yes terday which shows considerable in sight into the character of the new Governor, as regards politeness. It recalls the old story of Geoigc Wash ington, who is said to have once out done a negro in politeness. There v*r.s not much demonstration by the crowd along- the line of march, when the procession drow near to the Capitol an aged workingman, who stands some six feet and two inches, lifted his hat and salutsd the passing Governor with much dignity. To the surprise of everybody Governor Gage arose and doffed his hat to the lone workingman with as much politeness as if he had been saluting a superior in office or an equal in political rink.
