Foreign Relations, had a prolonged conference
lAlth thal*tnaldaal by appointment to-day. While
nothing has been given out as to the conference.
It is understiTd to have had reference to the
effect of the Senate's action on the Cuban bel?
ligerency reeolutlOB and the general subject of
the Administration's attitude toward Cuba.
Washington. May 21 (Special*..-l'atriotic and
thoughtful member?, of the House of Representa?
tives, irrespective of party, do ply rmret that the
Cuban question in that body should have been
made to BBannu a partisan aspect, and sensible
Democrat?, do not hesitate to say that th? y were
foolish yesterday when they followed the lead of
Bailey, who?-.-- main desire and purpose was to
Clinch his wav? rii.? and ins?.cur?> hold on the minor?

the turn affairs have take? in the Ileana
they BhOW as yet no Btgaa of weakening or waver?
ing in purpos.. Their position is a simple and
easily comprehensible as w? ?l aa i?n Impregnable
one, at ?east for the lime tiling. Briefly deocrlbed
lt is this: The state of affali.? In l'uba remains
about the sema M It was a year nfta, and if either
aide has gained around in the mean tin.??, in a mill
tarj sense, it is the Insurgente. Hut so far as the
outside world is concerned matters remain about
as th.y were, except in two or three important
reepectB Blnce the present Administration came
into power the Spanien officials in Cuba have ceased
to throw American dtlsens into du ? ?.'eon s and to
compel th?m to "'?ommit suicide" in order lo recape
from the tormenta Inflicted by their barbarous and
inhuman jailers. American Cltlseaa who had been
seized and imprisoned on false or frivolous charges
unsupported by evidence have been released ty
?cores, and the consular officer? o? the United States
in Cube ban ? gain been ible to feel that a friend?
ly as well ea a powerful Ooeernaaom is behind
in addition to the???? things, an agent of the flov
ernment has been sent to Cuha to sift the evidence
and ascertain the cause of the death ol an Ameri
lean prisoner in a Bpanlah dungeon, and also to in?
vestigate and report In regard to certain o;her mat?
ters, and, up,m the recommendation of the Admin?
istration, an appropriati m of 150,000 lias been voted
by Congress for the r?-lief nf destitute, sick and
starving American citizens erbe hav?? been reduced
to that conditi??t by the acts of the Spanish authori?
In view of these facts, all of which are the fruit?
of a new potier, Which was Initiated less than three
month? ago. friends of the .Administr?t!m In tlie
House of Repr?sentative? feel it is due to tha; ?Ad?
ministration to allow a little more lime for the de?
velopment of it? peHcjr before seeking to tie its
hands or embarrass its effort- i,y legislative action.
Whlcii. in th? nature of tilings, must ink?? the form
of a snap Judgment. To say that these men lack
sympathy With tb.? efforts of the Cubans to free
themselves from ;h?? detested and grievous burden
of Spanish rule Is ?Imply absurd, and even WOTSO.
Th? y are simply taking a ?land In favor of allow?
ing the President, who is tin- ? hoice of a majority
of his fellow-citizen?, to develop and carry out a
policy which they believe will be satisfactor?? to the
country. Whither they ?ill be aide to maintain
their position In the House of Representative? re?
mains to be seen, one thing seems to ba tolerably
certain, which is that if the majority in that body
surrenders to or tries to emulate the blatherskites
in that body led by Bailey. Simpson. McMlllln and
the r<?t, who cannot eee anything beyond tn<- end.?
of their nose.?, they will no; only l"se their Belf-re
ape.-t as atateamen. but sacrifice party control in the
next House. The beai and e lac al of them, fierefore,
believe that the Administration will act wisely and
aa expedlttouely ea the facts now or soon to come
into Its possession will warrant.
Philadelphia, May B.?Ex-Senator George F. Ed
munds, of Vermont, to-day discussed the action of
the Senate in passing the resolution recognizing
Cuban belligerency. "I am free to say." said Mr.
Edmunds, "that I do not think the Senate was
Justified In taking BUeb action at this time. Whet;
there was war between the North and the South
In this country the Washington Oovernment pro?
tested strongly a?t..inst th. recognition of the Con?
federacy by foreign Powers. England and France
heeded the protest for som?? time, but eventually
belligerency was acknowledged, At the time of tho
proU'St against such recognition there was in the
South a regularly organized government. Its civil
branch was an Important on?? and its seat of gov?
ernment was known the world over. Y.-t. despite
these facts, tbe I'nited States protested strongly,
and afterward ma?!?? England pay for the damage
done by cruisers fitt.-.l out In h?r ports.
"As far as my information goes t'uba has not
reached such a staile m was reached by the South?
ern States. Sne is still an integral part of Spain.
The Cub.m raus.? ?? represented primarily hy the
military power, and 1 repeat that there seems to?
me no exeuse at the present time for the action of
the Senate. The idea is held l.y some that with the
recognition of belligerency t'uba could fit out ves?
sels of war in ports of the I'nited States that
might prey upon Spanish merchantmen and fight
Spanish cruisers. This idea Is erroneous. The
moment the i'nited ?Stat??? granted recognition of
belligerency she would also assume a position of
strict neutrality."

?Senator Platt arrived in New-York from Wash?
ington at an early hour last evening, and went as
usual to the Fifth Avenue Hotel. After dinner
the Senator saw Andrew T>. White, the recently
appointed Ambassador to Germany. Mr. Whit?
told Mr. riatt that he intended to sail for his
poet of duty In Berlin a week from to-day.
Others who saw the Senator were Congressmen
Lemuel E. Qulgg and B. B. Odell, Jr., P. S. Oihh.?*.
Chairman C. W. Hackett, and William J.
Youngs, of Oyster Bay, member of the Republi?
can State Committee from the 1st District.
In his talk with Congressman Qulgg Mr. Platt
urged him to accede to the wishes of the organl
satlon and accept the presidency of the Republi?
can County Committee, to which Mr. Quigg la
likely to be elected on Tuesday evening: next.
Senator Platt spent a part of the evening after
dinner in the hotel corridors in conversation with
politicians an-i newspaper reporters.
He waa asked about the interview of County
Clerk Jacob Worth, leader of the Brooklyn or?
ganization Republicana, printed yesterday, In
which Mr. Worth declared that the true Repub?
lican pollcj. was a fusion ticket; that if Seth
Low should receive the united Republican and
Citizens Union nomination he should loyally
support Mr. Low, and that he did not go to the
Washington conference because he was tired of
futile Catherines engineered by Mr. Lauterbach.
?'I don't care to say anything about the In?
terview s-?id to have come from Mr. Worth until
its authenticity is established," said Mr. Platt.
"It is possible that Mr. Worth hns been quoted
as saying some things that it was not his in?
tention to say."
Then th? Senator added facetiously:
"I would refer all inquiries regarding such
subjects to the Editor Of 'The Evening Post.'
who said in this afternoon's edition that Clod's
ways are mysterious, and (Jodkin ought to
Mr. Platt's attention was called to a state?
ment in the reports of the Senate's action on the
Cuban resolutions placing him on the list of
paired Senators on Thursday. The Senator said
In explanation:
"When I lefl the Senate Chamber yesterday
for the purpose of taking Mis. Platt (who has
for some time been in Impaired health ? for a
drive I was informed that the day would be de?
voted to debate? and that a vote was not likely
to be rpached. I have a general understanding
with Senator McEnery, of Loulalana, that In
the absence of either of ??? we are paired on all
party questions. This will account for the an?
nouncement that we were paired on the Cuban
iesolutlms. Had I been present in the Senate
when the vote was taken I should, of course,
have recorded my vote."
"When do you think Congress will adjourn?"
"If anybody can ttll me when the Tariff bill I
will lie passed I can tell when Congress will ad?
journ." was the reply.
"Who will be elected president of the Repub?
lican County Committee in place of Mr. Lauter?
"There is no serious opposition to the election
of Mr. Quigg. The organization Is generally in
favor of him," Mr. Platt answered, "an.1 I look
for his election next Tuesday evening."
Congressman Odell said last evening that he
regarded August 1 as the probable date for get?
ting through with the Tariff bill and the ad
J< urnment of Congress.
Mr. Quigg declined to discuss the subject of
his possili!?? election as Mr. Lauterbach's stie?
lt mor, and declined to say whether he would
accept the ;?lace or not
There were rumors last night that so strong a
fight would be waged against Mr. Quigg by Louis
F. Payn, Charles H. Murray, "Lightning Jim"
Stewart, Charles K. Lexow, the Nyaok Sena?
tor's brother. ;md others in the committee that
Mr. Quigg would refuse to permit his name to
be presented for president of the committee. It
vas even predicted thet tbe situation might be?
et m? so strained that Mr. Lauterbach would be
induced t?> withdraw his resignation.
The Republic?,? Club of the XXIXth Assembly
District, at a meeting held last evening at No.
80P Lexington-ave., passed resolutions favoring
the nomination of Congressman Quigg for Mayor
of f,r?'<iter New-York, and pledging for him the
solid Republican vote, as well as a large part of
the independent vote of the consolidated terri?

Rotiert Fulton Cutting, chairman of the Com?

In speaking of the approaching campaign, ;hat the
Republican organization need not be afraid to In?

rjoaatp at the Custom EfOUM is now centred upon
the Mtbjeet of the appointment of a successor 10
Samuel |L Blntchford, who recently resigned the
place of auditor In the Surveyor's Department.
The place Is In the classified service, and there Is
no one In the Surveyor'- department eligible, but
In other departments there ar? a number of men
who have announced themselves as candidates,

of the marine division, while Chief Clerks Cryan

however, tii.it the Surveyor will recommend Sir.

When a
man has
__ ovei worked
2_-___ himself, and
neglected his
health, until he finally realizes
that he is a sick man, he too fre?
quently goes to some 0OBCUK phy?
sician who ha? had very little ei
perience or practice; the result is
a wtung diagnosi.'* and the wronfr
treatment. A man in this condi?
tion, if he continues to work and
***? tak'-s the wrong medicine, is really
making himself a aaddle hOTM for death.
I'ndcr these conditions, what a man really needs is
the advice and treatment of a physician of wide ex?
p?rience antl practice. Dr. Pierce, f?>r thirty year?
chief consulting physician to the Invalid's Hotel and

Washington, May M.-The subject of Civil Service
Reform In Its practical application under the regu?
lation? nnd extension? of the last Administration
la regarded and discussed In Waahlngton aa not of
secondary importance, and some or the men who
have been devoted to the reform from the begin?
ning have begun to tremble for Ita future. One of
these men 1 Assistant Secretary Ryan of the De?
partment of 'he Interior. As a member of the
House of Representatives In the XLVIIth Congress,
Mr. Ryan advocated and voted for the Civil Service
bill which then b??came a law by the votes of Re?
publican majorities In both branches of Congress
and i*?e aporoval of a Republican President. Mr.
Ryan was then serving hla third term In Congress,
and It Is wlihln the personal knowledge of the
writer of thi? dispatch that he was as stanch a
supporter and defender of the law during th?? three
terms tha. le served in that body after Its ?nact
tnent as he had been of the principle th.r.ln em?
bodied for the six year? before it was written In the
statute book. Twelve years' service aa a Represen?
tative In Congress, much of the time as a member
of the Committee on Appropriations, whose Juris?
diction waa then much more extensive than It now
Is, gave him opportunities, which he Improved, to
obtain a thorough knowledge of and deep Insight
Into the details as well aa the requirements of ex?
ecutive administration, and also a rather extensive
acquaintance with the personnel of the public ser?
vice In Washington and Its general efficiency.
After an Intervnl of eight yean Mr. Rynn ha?
returned to Washington as an executive oft!,-er.
and. In view of his honorable record as a zealous
Mend and advocate of Civil Service reform and hi?
long esportones ee a legislator, bis opinion la en?
titled to considerable weight. In the course of eon
vet satlon with a Tribune correspondent Assistant
Secretary Rynn said:
The existing situation Is an unfortunate, not to
say a critical one, fron at least two points of view.
It Is perhaps naturili for some friend? and sup?
porters of the merit systi m who bave a holy horror
of "spoilsmen" end "spoils" to regard any criticism
whatever of the Administration of the system?
the perversion of It. 1 may Bey?during the last
four years ns simply and solely nn ebullition of
disappointed and discontented office-seekers and
th. lr friends. This is a great mistake, and unless
It Is corrected I fear that the ultimate result Will
be disastrous. All the really Intelligent friends of
Civil Service reform ought quickly to realize the
truth. The Civil Service law hns been perverted
end dragged In the mire to serve partisan ends;
but even that Is not the worst of It. A new Ad?
ministration has come into power, pledged to carry
out policies which In man;? Important respects are
directly contrary to those of the last Administra?
tion, and It finds Itself confronted on the very
threshold by nn army of official incumhents hostile.
or, nt the very least. Indifferent, to it.-; alms and
purpose?--an army Intrenched behind newly de?
vised rules and regulations which were never con?
templated or dreamed of bv the fremer? nnd sup?
port? tra of the Civil Service law. whose design was
to ?l.vate and Improve the efficiency of the clerical
servie?? in the executive departments of the oov?
This army Is mainly composed In the flrst pla-e
of nil the au bordine te official? of superior grade?
chief? and assistant chiefs of divisions, confidential
clerks, disbursing e'erks, cashl?>rs, etc.. and In ?
number of case? of officials of even higher grade,
who were appointed without regarfl to the t'Ivi!
Service leer or refutations, but simply on account
of partisan considerations, and, In the second place,
Of fl vast number of other persons In various
branches of the service-watchmen, messenger*,
cooks, blacksmiths, farmers, deputy collectors.
gangers, storekeepers and a multitude of others
who?" places never fell within the purview of th??
Civil Service law. according to Its framers and ad?
??,??atea In both cases there seems to have been a
plain, deliberate and studied perversion for partisan
end? of the Intent of the law.
Rut the worst mischief hns been done, so fnr rs
efficiency of ailmlnis'ratlon Is concerned. In the
f-irm.r cane. The head of a bureau, whose chiefs
of division are either Indifferent or actually If not
openly hostile to the success of tlie policy which he
Is expected to carry out. can be thwarted at every
turn. He cannot Invite or encourage their subor?
dinate? to te!! the truth or give him correct In?
formation, for If he did there would be an end of
discipline. Resides, the chief of a division actually
holds in his hands the fate of the clerks who are
under him. Their "efficiency records" nre under
his control, nnd he may manlpu ate them ns he
pleases, and every clerk knows and realllcs It.
The things which ? have Indicated, an?*? others
which mlKht be mentioned, hnve put a strain upon
the merit system. Which, as ? thorough believer In
and devoted advocate of true Civil Service reform.
I fear It will not be able to benr: and If It does, It
wll! b" nt the expense of efficiency.
In the Interior Department as well as In the
Treasury Department "reform" ran riot during the
Cleveland Ailmlnistratlon. Not only were scores
of chiefs nnd assistant chiefs of divisions of long
experience and tried ability and efficiency dismissed
In order to make room for Democratic partisans,
but many others were reduced to the ranks for the
same reason, and then the mantle of "amended"
Civil Service regulations was thrown over all.
Moreover, the new chiefs and nsslstant chiefs
; turned their hands to the work of "reform," and
I the "efficiency records" of hundreds of clerks were
I so manipulated that many were dismissed and many
j more reduced to lower grades to make room for
Democratic partisans. These are facts which nre
? easily susceptible of proof, and. In view of tlicm. It
I Is not strange that officials who are now charged
1 with the duties and responsibilities of administra
I tlon sharply criticise anil strongly protest against
! the methods by which they have been so heavily
handicapped. Xo person who is not familiar with
the official routine of the executive departments
In Washington can form any Just conception of the
importance of the functions fulfilled by the su?
perior classes of subordinates below the heads of
bureaus and offices, or how much tlie Bueccoa of
any Administration depends upon their Integrity,
loyalty and efficiency.
RBPtmuCAira t? hold a CAUCVI on monkay?
Washington, May 21.?The Republican Senators
will hold a caucus on Monday, after the adjourn?
ment of the Senate, to crnslder various questions
In connection with the Tariff bill. The first effort
will be to devise plans to expedite the consideration
of the bill, and there will also be an attempt to rec?
oncile differences 0f opinion as to the merits of
some of Its features. Some of the schedules are
objectionable to many of the Senators, ami the sug?
gestion has been made that it Is advlsaMe to seltlo
such differences In caucus rathtr than In the open
The principal object of the caucus, however, Is
to agree upon a pian for the limitation of the time
for debate, and under the present rules it Is rec
ogniz?'<l that this can only be done by mutual cor.
sent. What th?? leaders will flrst attempt Is to se?
cure an agreement among Republican Senators to
restrain any desire that they mny hnve for general
speech???, and thus throw the responsibility for
whatever delay may occur upon the opposition. So
far as agreed upon, the programme Is to have Sen?
ator Aldricb make hi.-? statement on Monday or
Tuesday af next week, and to follow this by Im?
mediately taking up the schedule? and mnklnn no
other set apeches on the Republican side of the
chamber, if this plan could be Indorsed by a cau?
cus it would, of course, be materially strengthened
This agreement may be difficult to obtain without
some amendments of tha bill, but the advocates of
the caucus plan believe these changes may be se?
cured In caucus and Ihe work expedited.
? her?? ar?? indications that the d?bale may not be
so greatly prolonged as at first seemed probable.
The Democrats. Fopullata and Silver Republicans
all aver that they will consume no unnecessary
time with Bpeeehea. The Democrats profess to be
especially anxious that there should be no delay.
The Democrats will also hold ? caucus soon to de?
cide upon ? line of action, especially on the eubjeet
of amendment?. A Democrat!? member of the
Finance Committee expressed the opinion to-day
that a month would he sufficient time for debate.
