Assistant Sec retary of War Meiklejohn is giving con sideration to the arrangements for newspaper men with the invading army in Cuba. He has not yet formulated more than a very general plan. It is recognized in the war department that the correspondents must be provided for, and it is jroposed to attach them to the army in some capacity. This will give them the facilities for transporta tion and provide them with certain material. They will be permitted ,to mess with the officers, sharing with the latter the personal expenses of the camp. They are not likely to have official surveil lance beyound the obvious control the commanding general would have over those attached, even in a personal ca pacity; to his command or his fleet. They will be permitted to come and go as they please in most instances, and will be enabled to write and file dispatches at wilL There is some talk of exercising a censorship over matter sent out from Cuba, as matter of a confidential na true and reports of disasters would nat urally embarrass the government and interfere with the success of the oper ations on the island. The war department has as yet had few requests from newspaper men for duty with the column. The artists of some of the illustrated papers have put In their applications, and representa tives of some of the European papers have been in Washington for that pur pose. V DETAINS HER CAR. Sheriff of San Jose Collects a Bill Prom Anna Held. San Jose, April 21. Anna Held and Manager Ziegfeld gave bond this morn ing to cover the attachment and cost levied on their car last night by Sheriff Lyndon to collect $8.95 due Snow & Co. for dyeing a dress, and the attach ment was released. W. A. Bowden and C. M. Hatcher went, on the bond as sureties. The actress and her manager left at once for Stockton. After matters had been arranged.Miss Held gave vent to her thoughts in a choice mixture of French and English. She announced her Intention to sue the sheriff for $10,000 damages for the de tention of the car.She was angry when she made this threat, but she would have been in tears had she known that In the event of her failure to give bonds the sheriff would have seized, her pet monkey and parrot and. her collection of animal curiosities. Miss Held stoutly declared she had been bunkoed. She threatens to sue Snow & Co. for -$600, the-value of a dress which she claims was ruined and $1,000 damages. The Successful Remedy for NASAL.

"o c a S g cs 3 & a u HARDSHIPS OF THE YUKON Forty Men Who Went North Full of Hope Brought Back in Coffins. Ottawa, April 21. The following Is an extract from a letter received by Mr. David Henderson, a lawyer of Hamilton, Ont., from a friend in Vic toria, B. C, who says: "We are be ginning to see the true horrors of the Klondike. A Seattle steamer brought down 40 corpses last week, and on Saturday last a Victorian came from Dawson City bringing the sad news of the death of L. B. Hamlin, C. E., and his companion, from exposure. He left home in October upon government work. Dr. Richardson, son of Dr. Rich ardson of Toronto, has a small hospital In Dawson City. He did all possible for him, but without avail. "It is fearful, this greed for gold. We see it here in all classes going out to this cold region. Many will never return; others will probably come back to be a burden upon the coast cities, you will say I have not much faith in the Yukon. I have not. The mer chants, contractors, and hotel men will make their fortunes, and they will be left to Canada a lot of useless inhabi tants, although, it is said, after the first wash-up there will not be less than 20 tons of gold brought down. The most of it will go to the United States." DEPEW'S NEW YENTURE. In Connection With Sugar King Searles He Will Manufacture Fish OiL New York, April 21. Chauncey M. Depew loves perfume and detests ill smelling odors. But he and John E. Searles, the sugar magnate, have en tered into an enterprise of producing oil from the moss bunker fish. Mr. De pew and his partners say that their new plan will accomplish its object without the malodorous effects that have hitherto attended this profitable industry. Application has been made to the health board for a privilege to establish a plant on Barren Island. In asking for this privilege Mr, Depew puts him self on record by saying the process he and his partners control will be entire ly unodorous. The health board will probably issue the permit, but the mat ter must first be submitted to the shore residents, who now complain of the Barren Island stenches. The new plant is called a "reducer," and the supposition is that pressure, not boiling, is the system adopted for producing the oil that exists in the moss bunker. If Mr. Depew is correct in his assertions the Barren Island nuisance will quickly disappear. HOT SHOT FOR PENNSY. Has an Insurance Commissioner With Bad J udgment to Say the Least. For some time past Insurance Com missioner Lambert of Pennsylvania has been spending a part of his leisure 'time taking "shots" at Commissioner McNall for his dealings with insurance compa nies, and lately advised the fire in surance companies to withdraw from the state and let the Kansas property burn. This last sally provoked Com missioner McNall and In a letter given out today he says: "Not long ago this man Lambert claimed to have made an examination of the Guarantors of Philadelphia, and immediately upon the heels of his ex amination came the Wisconsin, Illinois and Missouri insurance departments in sisting that the Guarantors was rotten "to the core and demanding another ex amination. The superintendents of the aforesaid states went in person to Phil adelphia. Mr. Lambert informed them that he had recently made an exam ination of the Guarantors and found it gilt edged and refused to let the ex amination proceed. Missouri was con vinced and went back home and per mitted the company to continue doing business in the state upon Lambert's investigation, but Wisconsin and Illin ois were not satisfied. They went home and revoked the license of the Guaran tors to do business in those states. A few months after this whitewashing process of the Guarantors by Brother Lambert the company burst. This is one of the gentlemen who Is criticis ing our fire insurance in Kansas and saying that he would let property burn for lack of fire insurance. Brother Lambert seems to be unfortunate in se lecting his subjects for discussion." senatehas.it. House Passes War Measure as an Emergency Bill. Goyernors Will Appoint Officers of Tolunteers. OMINOUS WARNINGS From Talbert of South Caro lina, Who Believes That Europe May Be Drawn Into the Encounter. Washington, April 2L The house has passed as an emergency war measure, the bill empowering the president to call out the volunteer forces and providing for their organization. Both the presi dent and Secretary Alger had urged the imperative necessity of the passing of the bill today, and Chairman Hull of the military committee drove it under whip and spur. The bill .was drafted at the war de partment. Introduced in the house yes terday and considered and reported by the committee today. No such expedi tion could have been possible except under the stress of. war pressure. The bill is permanent in its character. The principal change made in the bill as introduced was that the appointment of all regimental officers are to be made by the governors of the state, instead of by the president, as was proposed orig inally by the war department. This act ion conforms to the practice of the civil wa r. . The senate Joint resolution authoriz ing the printing of extra copies of the military publications of the war depart ment was adopted. Chairman Hull said that the commit tee on military affairs had made only one important change in the bill as pre pared by the war department. That change reserved to the governors of the states the power to appoint company and regimental officers which the bill as drawn conferred upon the president and was in harmony with the law of 1861. The house went into committee of the whole to consider the bill. A question arose as to whether under the provisions of the bill additional leg islation would not be necessary to per mit the president to call out volun teers. To meet this defect, Mr. Lacey offered an amendment authorizing the presi dent to raise volunteers when congress shall have authorized him to do so or when he has been authorized "to ca.l into actual service of the United States the militia of the several states." The amendment was adopted. Mr. McMillin (Dem., Tenn.), moved to reduce the term of enlistment of- the volunteer forces for three years, as pro vided in, the bill, to one year. He thought many of the young men of the country would not be willing to enlist for three years. Mr. Hull replied that it was not ex pected that the war should be a long one, unless Spain resorted to guerrilla warfare, but he did not believe a three years' term would terrorize the young men. The amendment was defeated. Mr. Handy offered a substitute au thorizing the enlistment of 400.000 men for the present war. He said it was dis tinctly a temporary measure, under the approval of eminent military authori ties. The substitute was lost. Mr. Talbert (Dem., S. C.) warned the house that war with Spain was not a light thing. Gentlemen who thought it would be over in a few days would be sadly disappointed, in his mind. "I remember at the opening of the last war," said he, "men at the north and south believed that it would not last 30 days. I heard a man agree to drink all the blood that was spilled. Ev ery country in Europe may be drawn into the encounter before we get through with Spain." After further debate the bill passed the house without division. INTERRUPTED A VISIT. How America's Ultimatum Was Giv en to Senor Polo at Noon. Washington.April 21. When the ulti matum of the United States to Spain was delivered to the Spanish minister Senor Polo, the French and Austrian ambassadors, were with Senor Polo. SenorPolo maintained his impertur bable exterior, although he had aban doned all hope of an outcome other than war. Outside the legation a lieu tenant of police and an officer were on duty as a result of the destruction of the legation sign. At 12 o'clock a colored messenger from the state department appeared at the front door of Minister Polo's resi dence and in an unconventional way stated that he had a message from the state department for the Spanish min ister. Senor Polo excused himself from the French ambassador and met the messenger in the legation corridor. He glanced at the enclosure noting that it was the ultimatum and bade the mes senger wait for a reply. This was al ready prepared and had been ready since yesterday. It was not a rejoin der to the ultimatum, but a terse re quest for his passports. This letter was sent to the state de partment by the messenger and the minister rejoined his friends and awaited the arrival of his passports. Immediately, however, the calm of the legation gave way to hurried prepara tions for departure and the dispatch ing of long cables to Madrid. All of the official and personal effects long ago packed were finally locked and sealed. The minister's staff follows: Senor Polo de Bernabe, minister; Senor Juan du Bosc, first secretary; Senor Pablo Soloer, first secretary; Senor Don Ac quirona. second secretary; Senor Gal araza, third secretary; Senor Plac, at tache; Senor Almeid, attache; Captain De La Casa, military attache; Lieuten ant de Carantha, naval attache. Senor Polo does not make public the direction of his journey after leaving Washington, as he wishes to avoid' un necessary attention. The party will be soon enroute for Spain. WILL REQUIRE BUT ONE TRIP. Government Preparing to. Transport the Soldiers to Cuba Washington. April 21. Arrangements are being made by the war department for the transportation of troops from southern ports to Cuba. Col. A. S. Kimball-, chief quartermaster of the department of the east, will open bids at New York for the charter of steam vessels for this important service. The government will have no difficulty in securing a sufficient number of first class steam vessels of good speed for the transportation of the army to be sent to Cuba. Among the companies which have offered vessels to the government for this service are the following: Iron Steajnboat -.company of New York city Taurus, capacity 2,000 pas sengers; Cetus 1,800; Perseus 1,800: Pe gasus 1,800. , 'a'ri System, at Tampa Mascotte 1,000; Olivette 1,000; Florida 1,000. Cape May and Delaware Bay Navi gation company at Philadelphia, Re public 2,600; New York and Texas Steamship company at New York city Colorado 1,000; Leona 1,000; Alamo 1, 000; Lampasas 1,000. Southern Pacific company of New York Aransas 1,000; Gussie 1,000; Mor gan 1,000; Whitney 1,000. The probabilities are that arrange ments will be made whereby the gov ernment will secure most if not all, of the above vessels. 4,000 DESERTERS. Blanco Says That Number Has Quit Our Navy to Serve Spain. Madrid, April 21. An official dispatch from Havana says: "Captain General Blanco has charter ed a vessel to bring over 4,000 Spanish SOldierS. Who hnira hamtnfnra r, -..r. -1 J . the United States navy but who are now uesirous 01 defending their own country." The official dispatch adds1 that the Cuban insurgent leader, Belancourt has published a proclamation agreeing to a suspension of hostilities. In conclusion, the official dispatch says: "The inhabitants of Santiago de Cuba, even those who are most hos tile to Spain, are ready to fight on the side of the Spaniards and some influ ential rebel leaders have the same intention." OUR MODERN CITIES. James A. Troutman Talks on Munici pal Reform. In a paper read before the Ministerial Union on "Municipal Problems," James A. Troutman said: "Ruskin describes two irresistible Impulses- in human nature "Whatever we have, to get more, and wherever we are, to go somewhere else." Hunger and love, appetite and affection are the organic forces which control the move ments of men. Ever since Abram left his Mesopotamian birthplace, in obedi ence to the command of the Almighty, to, 'Get thee out of thy country, and go into the land of Canaan, 'men have been going 'somewhere else.' That 'some where else' for a generation, or more, has been the United States. The nat ural increase of our native population will be multiplied by a ceaseless tide of immigration. A large majority of this population will be massed in our cities. A hundred years ago one twentieth of our people lived in cities, 50 years ago one-third, and now more than half. The exhaustion of our pub lic domain diminishes the possibility of cheap rural homes, and increases the tendency to city life. While our super ficial area has been computed, the limit of the productive capacity of an acre of land has not been approached. I am not at all apprehensive about the means of future subsistence. The problem of the coming years will not be one of production, but of distribution how the abundance produced in the country can be equitably distributed among the mil lions who live in the cities. Possibly the best way to solve this problem is not to solve it all; simply direct public attention to it and then leave it to the universal solvent of time. Cities domi nate the state and the nation, with lit tle restraint, and as their population grows relatively larger the influence of the agricultural classes will be propor tionally reduced. The municipal prob lem is therefore the problem of national life and usefulness, "More than four-fifths of the immigra tion to this country finds permanent residences in our--cites. Compare the native and foreign population of our largest ten cities: ' New York, native, 875,358. per cent, 57; foreign, 639,943, per cent, 43. Chicago, native, 649,184. per cent, 58; forcijrn, 450,466, per cent 42. Philadelphia, native, 777, 4S4, per cent, 74; foreign, 269,480, per cent, 26. Brooklyn, native, 544.643, per cent, C5; foreign, 261,790, per cent, 34. St. Louis, native, 336.894. per cent, 74; foreign, 114,876, per cent, 26. Boston, native, 290,305, per cent, 64; foreign, 158,172, per cent, 36. Baltimore, native.365,436. per cent, 84; foreign, 65,603, per cent, 16. San Francisco. native, 172,186.per cent, 57; foreign 126,811, per cent, 43. Cincinnati. native, 225. 590, per cent, 75; foreign, 71,408. per cent, 25. Cleveland, native. 164, 2?S, per cent. 63; foreign, 9, 095, per cent, 37. Total, native, 4,401,3S8; foreign, 2,253, 644. Average per cent of natives, 6G; of foreigners, 34. " The relative proportion of the na tive and foreign inhabitants in these ten cities is practically maintained in all of the 124 cities in the United States, mentioned in the census report and classified as to nativity. "The newer western cities have a smaller percentage of foreigners. To peka, for instance, had 27,554. nafives and only 3,453 foreigners. "It will not be inappropriate to mention here that Topeka has a larger percentage of colored people (5,038)than any other city in the nation outside of the former slave holding states. "The foreign population in Topeka and in western cities, generally, is of a superior grade, in morality, industry and intelligence. "I have culled from the census re port comparative statements of the expenditures of all the cities in the United States of over 50,000 inhabi tants. These figures represent the or dinary current expenses common to all cities. Without burdening this paper with statistical minutia I will place a few figures in significance contrast.The annual per capita cost of maintaining ten of our chief cities is as follows: New York $24.56 Chicago 13.80 Boston 32.63 Baltimore 14-02 Buffalo 23.41 New Orleans f. 8.65 St. Paul i-. 39.07 Ask your doctor hov many preparations of cod liver oil there are.

Wife of a Prominent Methodist Minister so Refers to That Valuable Specific For Nervous Diseases. 'Br. Miles9 Nervieeo It ured Her. More than half the sicknes sand dis ease in this world comes from weak nerves, loss of vitality and nerve force. When the nervous power is depressed, then the food Is imperfectly digested, assimilation is interrupted, the albu men and febrine of the blood the nu tritious principles of the blood become deficient in their relative proportions to the other parts of the blood, and the health suffers. It cannot be repeated to often that the nerves control every part of the body, and anything which Irritates the nerve centers weakens the life-giving and life-sustaining power of the whole system. Dr. Miles' Restora tive Nervine is the exact remedy for Indianapolis 9.27 Los Angeles 21.59 Des Moines - 7.28 "Why should it cost twice as much in New York as Chicago, Boston more than double that of Baltimore, Buf falo three times as much as New Or leans, St. Paul four times as much as Indianapolis and Los Angeles three times as much as Des Moines? The most extravagantly governed city in cluded in the census report, is St. Paul ($39.07) and the most economically gov erned is Reading, Pa., ($5.07). No ex planation, in harmony with sound bus iness management, can be offered for these wide discrepancies. Some of the startling facts, disclosed by official fig ures, almost confirm the conclusion of Prof. Bryce that the government of American cities is a 'conspicuous fail ure. Compare the increase in popula tion, debt and taxation of 15 of our principal cities for a decade and a half: Increase in population, 70.5 per cent. Increase in debt, 270.9 per cent. Increase In taxation, 363.2 per cent. "Argument and explanation are futile in the face of such figures. In seeking relief from oppressive burdens many plans, some feasible and some chimeri cal, are proposed. Just now popular thought is directed to the governmental ownership of so-called utilities. The proposition as far as it concerns muni cipalities, has much to commend it. But the theory is rapidly enlarging. Men not onlv advocate city ownership of waterworks, electric light plants.and street railways, but with the assumed wisdom of statesmanship talk of gov ernment stockyards, railroads, insur ance, and coal mines. "The practical effect of the municipal ownership of public utilities would de pend upon the character of our city government. With wise, honest and economical officers in control, these agencies might become a public bene ficence. But officers who would barter away municipal franchises 'and. enter into collusion with those who despoil the citadel of civil liberty for gold, would have their power for evil aug mented. With 'bad men in office in creased powers and enlarged facilities would aggrayate the evils complained of. "What I have said about the atroc ious wrongs and imperfections of mun icipal affairs must not be interpreted as a distrust of popular government. I disclaim any pessimistic views or ten dencies. I have the most sublime faith and mrtst tenacious hope in the pro gressive and final triumph of right. I believe that for every maladjustment there is an infallible remedy some where in reserve." COMPRESSED AIR ' CLOCKS. The Philadelphia Commission Will Favor This Style of Timepiece. . Philadelphia, April 21. The delega tion of Public puildings Commissioners which arrived' home Saturday evening after an extensive western tour in search of information relative to big clocks and their construction, brings .with it considerable data concerning this subject. Speaking of the trip, Franklin M. Harris said yesterday: "The clock in the tower of the court house at Milwau kee has a dial the diameter of which is twelve feet. The dial and hands are ex posed to the elements. The motive pow er is compressed air. Way down In the basement, where the temperature slightly varies, is a master clock, a timepiece similar to those hanging in railroad stations, and the mechanism of this clock regulates the time up in the tower. Every half minute a spring is released in the master clock and enough compressed air is allowed to enter the small rubber tube connecting with the rods operating the hands on the big clock, as will release another spring in the tower and all the hands' move half a minute. "This keeps up indefinitely, and no matter how warm or cold the weather, or how much snow or ice gets on the hands, they move "their distances when the springs are released. "Our attention has been called to the clock in Minneapolis many times, be cause it is only a little smaller in size than the one proposed for the city hall tower. The principle of this clock is precisely the same as that at Milwau kee. The dial of the Minneapolis clock is about twenty-three feet in diameter and at present it is the largest clock in the country. Its elevation is 150 feet, whereas the location of our timepiece will be 360 feet up in the air. What we wanted to know particularly was whether storms interfere 'with its operations, because of the fact of its tremendous size and much larger hands than those of other clocks. Our hosts carefully explained every point not clear to us and we were surprised that during the three years' running, it has kept accurate time and was in no way affected by the climatic changes." In 1888 my wife went east and was attacked with rheumatism. She receiv ed no relief until she tried Chamber lain's Pain Balm. Since that time we have never been without it. We find it gives instant relief in cases of burns and scalds and is never failing for all rheumatic and neuralgic pains. D. C. BRANT, Santa Ynez, Cal.

WATTERSON'S TIEW. War a Good Thing and Will Get TJs "Out o the Rut". Chicago, April 21. Henry Watterson thinks war with Spain will be worth all it costs this country. He made this ob servation at the auditorium today in the course of an interview, in which he commended the resolutions adopted by congress. "War will get us out of the rut in which we have been for years," he said, as he settled back in his chair, arranged his unconventional smoking jacket, crossed his legs and began discussing the crisis which the "peace-at-any-price" people so feared. "For years we have discussed the fin ancial questions. We have listened to those who have offered a panacea for all evils, and, in a word, listened to plans whereby we could live without working. .War will bring great men to the front. The civil war produced a generation of powerful men. War with Spain will do the same. "We are at present in a rut. There are not more than half a dozen really eminf-nt men in congress. Many great men do not care to give up their time for the small salary of congressmen. Do you suppose that Reed would have the picnic he has had with Bailey if there were such men as Beck in the house? How different it would be if Blaine were there." "Whom do you consider, then, the re ally great men in the senate?" The editor laughed. "There are so few that it is scarcely worth while enumerating them. War will stir things up The next president may be a man whom no one at this time ever thought of. "This war. may bring to the front some now unknown men to lead both parties. Gen. Lee is today probably the most popular man in this country. He is able, brave and, brilliant. But I do not see in him the man who can unite the Democratic party. If our party is united it will not be by any one man's ambition; it will be the union of many forces. "My friend, Maj. W. H. Thomas, here, wrote me some time ago, saying: 'The next president of this country will be the Yankee admiral who will sink the most Spanish ships,' and I agree with him." v- In reference to., the war.JHr. Watter son said: "If ever there was just cause for a power to step in and say 'stop' it now exists. The resolutions passed by congress meet with my approval. The recognition of the republic is not to my mind a question of importance. Let us drive Spain out of the land. That is the first thing. The rest is all de tail. I do not think there will be much of a war. Spain's ships are out at the heel. Her army is not paid, and 1 doubt if her flotilla can cross the ocean." GUIDE TO WASHINGTON,D.C.

"WATERMELONS COMING. This Year's Florida Crop is Unusually Large, Fine, and Early. Washington, April 21. "The coming watermelon season promises to be an unusually extensive one," explained a New York fruit buyer, who is in Wash ington temporarily, on his return from a southern tour, "and I would not be surprisBd if there were lots of nice wa termelons in the market here by the last .week in April. . I have traveled extensively in Florida and Georgia, and I find that there are enormously large crops planted. The vines in Florida are already Btrong and large, and they are 'running very lively in Georgia al so. "The Florida melons will reach the markets of the north probably two weeks in advance of those from Georgia though the latter will be here almost before the time the seed are planted in those parts of Maryland and Virginia which later on supply the markets." Though the Florida fruit in the1 melon line is nice looking, It does not compare in the matter of eating, a very import ant matter, by the way, with the melon grown in Georgia.
