H Canto. Ohio, Nov. SO. Tho Ohio political
H situation contlnuos to be tbo liveliest question
H of the day, and the falluro to learn officially
V Just what DAtsod botween Major McKlnley and
BJ Beoator-eleot Foraker yesterday 1ms not
J silenced gossip and speculation on tho subjeot.
Tho mystery surrounding those conferences In
l Canton and in Cloveland tends to swell tlio
H volnmo ot speonlntlon. This evening ouo of ths
H ealy friends ot Major MoKlnley, who still
H stands high at tho MoKlnley home, talkod over
BJ the matter.
BJ Thero Is no row In Ohio at present," ho said,
BJ nor Is It probable that there will be one. Tho
H matter of patronage will properly adjust Itself.
BL In fact, there Is not a great deal of this pntron-
BB age since the general extension of tho civil ser-
H Vice rules. Tho smaller matters will naturally
fljj be referred to the Republican Congressmen in
BB the districts concerned, and where thero I not
Bfl aaoh a Congressman or an orthodox Republican
B ex-Congressman the matter will go to tho Sen-
Bfl " Besides there are only n few marshnlshlps and
flH a few rercnue colleoturs. These t beltevo will
BH be apportioned to the two Senators according to
BB tbetr residence territory, the dividing line prob-
fljj ably being from east to west and running
BE through Columbus, giving Foraker the southern
BB section and Sherman the northern section. Our
fljj party cannot afford to precipitate a fight at tho
BB opening of the now Administration, and I be-
Bfl lleve that Senator Foraker realties this Just as
JJ clearly as anyone. I bellove the visits of Mr.
Bfl Foraker and his friends to bo Just what they
BJ are said to be. conferences for the discussion of
BJ party matters and entirely friendly."
BJ The next man encountered in tho hotel lobby
H had ndlllorent view. He believes that the chief
Bfl concern of the Foraker people Is to ascertain
Bfl what polioy the McKlnley people propone and to
BJ enact a pledge from tho Major himself that ho
HP will not Interfere In the next Senatorial contest
In the State. To the latter tho Major, this
fl authority avers, will not consent, much as he
3 would like to avoid a conflict.
1 "As to plans," said the same man, "Sir. For
aker Is not being advised of them. In fact, the
plans are not very clearly outlined as yet, nor
will they bo until the short session of Congress
baa convened and certain prominent public men
can be ganged and their qimlltlrattons deter
mined. The feeling that Mr. Ilanna will go
into the Cablnot Is growing rather than otber
wise, and If he is called there Is little doubt but
that he will bo for the Treasury Denartmrnt
and not for either of the other portfolios with
which gossip has associated ills name."
There will be a conflict between the two fac
tions, this authority believes. o er the selection
of a tenatorw hen the time comes, but he thluks
It may be averted till after the new Administra
tion Is under wny If Senator Foraker Is made to
believe that he U to have a reasonable say In
Ohio matters. No stock is taken here In the
theory that Co v. Uusdnell's Senatorial ambition
will be overcome wltn n place In tho diplomatic
service. The Governor doubtless can ti j e a ri
nomlnatlon and reelection if he stands for them,
I but If he wants anything moro he will have to
fight for it.
l'ho Ohio situation is not the only ono that Is
being seriously considered. The New York
problem Is not an easy one. and it I said here
to-night that Mr. Plait will be here during tlio
week to offer Ills services in arranging a eola
tion. Mr. I'latt will no doubt liavo a cordial
welcome and u pleatant visit, but the opinion
prevails that He will be referred to Mr. Ilanna
when it oomes loserlonsly discussion New York
matters. The Chairman thus far has succeeded
admirably in that quarter, and the Major bos
no desire to take the Job off of his hand.
Numerous visits reoently have attracted at
tention to tbe complications of Minnesota and
tha Northwest ana now the Illinois situation is
coming to the front. Claimants to the title of
original MoKlnley men wore numerous In tho
preliminary struggles and until victory was won
they nil worked in reasonable harmony. But
now the old lines lire being drawn and the
President-elect and the National Chairman are
being bt'Sleged by claims and counter claims.

There was considerable quiet talk yesterday
I, In the Union League Club In Brooklyn in re
gard to ths possible (election of Congressman
1 Francis II. Wilton, one of the founders and the
i first President of the club, for a Cabinet place
, in the Incoming national Administration. The
Secretaryship of the Navy was the place to
i which, it was said by the friends of Mr. Wilson,
be bad some reasonable aspirations. During
his two years in Congress Mr. Wilson has
served on the Naval Committee, and, it Is said,
f 1 has acquired much valuable Information in re-
i I gard to the department.
: 1 I Like Gen. Benjamin F.Tracy, tho only Drook-
i ) lyn man who has hitherto received a Cabinet
j I appointment, Mr. Wilson Is n lawyer, and has
J I an excellent reputation in his profession. He
J I ' has been active In the Kepuhllran nrganizntloi
( I In Kings county, and was foremost In the uinvo-
I ment which resulted in the formation of the
s I Union League Cluh. He has stood, for the most
I part, aloof from the factional squabbles In
I I Kings county, and Ills elevation to u Cabinet of-
II M. flee would hu heartily endorsed by all tbe de
ll n! menu In the party.
flll Mr. WtUnn Is an old friend of the President
H elect, and two weeks ago wa a welcome visitor
ft"ll atCuuiiin. He carried tho Third Congress ills-
,7)( trlcl In 1N1I4, and again at tho recent election,

There may be some cynical persons who will
scoff at this story, and declare it to be untrue.
THE Sun reporter who writes It cannot say. He
bos heard many tales and some of them were
truoand some woro not. It is propor to announce,
however, that this one has for Its authority tho
solemn regard which a policeman has for the
sanctity of nn oath, nnd every man In Now York
knows what that Is. The policeman Is Hlnn of
tho Tenderloin. He averred in the Jefferson
Market Court before Magistrate Slmms. yester
day morglng, that on Saturday night he found
Chnrlos E. Hurbnnk of U14 Kast Twenty-nlnth
street "notlnir In a suspicious manner," to wit,
sitting on the Iron cross bar of a lamp post in
Broadway at Twenty-sixth street, Rlnn ap
proached the lamp post and engaged Uurbank
in conversation. The well-known urbanity and
politeness of Now York policemen is proof
enough that this is what was said :
" What do yo on the post f'asked Rlnn.
" I view the landscape o'er." replied Uurbank.
" An' what do yo observe?" asked Hlnti.
" I observe a foolish cop.'' replied Burhank.
" Ay. an' ye'ro observed of him," Fald Itinn.
"Tho worse luck for me," said Uurbank.
"Ye sneak truth." said Hlnn. "Comedown
from the post."
"I'll not." said Uurbank.
"Ye will." snld Hlnn, nnd he drew out his
long hlcknrj club.
Uurbank came down. It was observed by
those of the crowd who Hero near enough that
there was nothing whntuver suspicious abuut
Uurbank. His act was tho perfectly natural
result of a series of widely extended experi
ments In Intoxicants. Therefore when he wns
arraigned in the Jefferson Market Court before
Magistrate Sltnmn yesterday he. wns charged
simply and concisely with being drunk.
" our honor." he snld, " I have been working

An Attempt to Run Without Cable Not
Successful, bnt It tVux u Had Nlgbt.
The noisy, snorting little steam motors which
have done servlco so long on tho Brooklyn
Bridge were relegated to obscurity last night,
and the bridge officials essayed to run their
trains with tho new electric motor cars. These
cars have been used to shift trains at the ter
minals, but last night tho experiment was made
of using them for the entlro Journey across tho
The cable was kept running, and it was well
for travellers between tno two cities who relied
on tbe bridge trains for means of transit that
this was so, for the experiment was not In all
respects a success, and recourse was had moro
than once to the cnblo when tho motor cars
failed to draw their loads.
It may be truthfully said that the conditions
were unfaorahle for tho experiment. Tho
tracks were "greasy" because of the storm,
and, what was far worse, the third track, from
which tbe ekctrlcal current is taken to supply
the motors, was covered with snow and Ice.
The result was that there was some loss of
power, as good contact could not be made be
tween ths " shoe" on the car and tho electric
supuly rail. The Ice nnd snow played hobs with
the electricity, nnd the air was full of blue fire
as tbo motors labored up tbeurades.
A Suk reporter took a trip over to Brooklyn
and back on the same train shortly before mid
night. The motor pushed the train of three
cars up ths grade tn the centre of the bridge,
with the aid of the cable for only n few rods,
and tbe run down grado to the Brooklyn ter
minus was a more mattt r ot gravity.
The return trip was not o successful. The
two gilp cars caught ths cable and held it for
about ten rods, and then dropped It on signal to
permit the electric motor to go It alone. Im
mediately the air about the motor car wok filled
with bine fire and the passengers In It hustled
back Into the first grip car.
The train proceeded a few rods, thon stopped
and backed down the crade. The motor finally
started It up again, nnd there was a bumping and
thumping of cars that threatened to pile the
passengers in a heap. Tbe motorman finally
gave It up, and the train was backed down till
tbo grins could take up the cable. Then the
Journey to New York was mode without further
event of nots.

Sir. Foster rinvs the Islanders Are tTaltlaK
for SIcItlnley'N InuuKuratlon.
CiliCAtio, Nov. 20. John W. Foster. ex-Secro-tary
of State, arrived In Chicago yesterdoy on
his way to his homo in Washington from
Honolulu. He spent a little more than two
weeks on the Islands, and his observations con
firmed the belief hlch ho had as Secretary of
State In President Harrison's Cabinet that
annexation of Hawaii by tbe United Slates Is
the duty of this Government.
"The present Hawaiian Administration is
waiting for tbe inauguration or President Mo
Klnley to make another effort to have the
Islands annexed," said Mr. Foster. "The Con
stitution under which tho people of tbe islands
are living at present has annexation as one of
the main things to be striven far.
"The islands were never In a more prosperous
condition than at present. They are nrosperlng
in a business way because the last sugar crop
was exceptionally good and the administration
of President Dole Is excellent.
"It Is recognized that the ultimate fate of
the Islands, If they nro not annexed by the
United States, will be annexation by some
other of the great powers. It will
be Impossible for the Islanders to gov
ern themselves successfully for any great
length of time by the reason of the clash
between the different elements, republicans and
royalists, and natives and foreigners. One thing
In settled, and that Is that the Queen will never
rule again or tbe monarchy bo restored. So It
remains for tho United Slates to act without da
lay, or some other nation will assume power In
tha Hawaiian Islands."

The State Civil Servlco Commissioners will
meet In Albany to-morrow by direction of Gov.
Morton to act on tho reclassification ot thu civil

sioners somo weeks ngo to make a new classifi
cation, and Commissioner Silas W. Burt, tho
Mugwump of the Board, undertook the task of
preparing tho report ns ho has undertaken tn
do about all the exccutlvo work of tho Com
mission In tho past two years. Ho has
been nldrd In tho work by the enthusiasts of
the State Civil Servlco Reform Association, and
his report has been ready for some time. His
understood that Gov. Morton has seen It, but
does nut propose to act on It until It comes bo
fore htm In nn official wny, through the recom
mendation of thu Civ II Sorvlce Commissioners
ns n Board. The question has arisen whether It
111 ever get to him with such recommendation.
Till Sun has already told. In a general way.
what this nun- chisslflcntlnn Is, but an Idea of
its sw coping and rev olullonary character Is best
Indicated by thostnlcmentpf a Republican pol
itician who hns seen It.
" About the only appointive State officials
who seem to ha exempt by It from the necessity
of rxnmlunllon are tha three CU II Service Com
missioner," said this gentleman last evening.
This Is, perhaps, too sweeping, but tho fact Is
that the no- classification, as prepired by Mr.
Burt, docs Include deputies nnd other subordi
nates of County Treasurers: It takes In the
deputy nnd nil thu subordinates of County
Clerks and Registers, who are very many In
eoiiiu rntimles like New York and Kings; and it
lsalsonppllrabln in Sheriffs' offices and Boards
of Education. Then, too. It seeks to put the
employees of both Houses of the Legislature In
thu classified service. It does not do this In
terni. but Its general pruvMops huvo been sub
mitted to competent legal nut, orttles. who as
sert that there Is nodnubt that even tho pages
of the Aesembly are included.
There Is no doubt that Mr. Burt will vote to
recommend that the Governor promulgate this
classification prepared by him with the aid of
his civil crlu reform friends. Whether tho
othtr two members of the Board will vote with
hlns or not Is n question. A. hts been hinted,
they hove been practically Ignored by Commis

Havana, Nov. 25. Tho Cuban war has nosy flU
reached Its climax of devastation und bloods 'yaVsVJ

has resolved to exterminate nil the Cubans In 'JflBJll
tho province of Ulnar del Rln not engaged an T'flBJjl

peaceful and harmless they appear. "They .BBjBJ

"and neither women nor children will Da lflBJjl
spared, because these people, ns Innocent as -VJjVjJl
they look, act as spies for the Insurgents la' 'vflBjjl

He said also that It was a necessity of war to '"wJmfl
destroy tho whole province, burning every house tlBl
which may be made n shelter for the Insurgents jjjl
nnd every plantation which may give them food. YffdVJ
"Tho Spanish soldiers,"' added Wryler. "have vBVai

These words arol very much commented &flVj
among the Spaniards aud have been repeated BBJ
by the Marquis of Plnnr del Rio. whose uncord (til
promising feelings against tbe Cubans are well 1
Tho plan of campaign of Gen, Woyler has ''fjVJ
thus been changed. He shrinks from attacking ' BjBH
Maceo In his strongholds, but prefers to let htm rflfj
and his men perish of starvation. It la doubt- BH
fullfhecan reallzo this plan better than the flH
other, as Maceo has provisions enough for one' frl
year, and in December Gen. Gomes will start' 'BPJ
again his march to the west. And what can the B
Spaniards do then except to divert a part of ''BJ
their forces now operating against Maceo to , BBJ
new battlefields in Puerto Prlnclpo, Las Villas, H
Mntanzas, and Havana? r-H
There is no foundation for the rumor that V-Bfll
Gen. Gomez will make, at present any effort to 4VJj1
help Maceo in Plnar del Rio. as Maceo can take IflH
care of himself In the chain of mountains knowni leflVj
as Sierra do Arganos. Gomez Is preparing hie vVJjvJ
march tor December. This Is not thu right iwaVJ
tlmo for him to start, because he mliht sacrl ;H
fice uselessly men and munitions needed to In- ',jBH
terfere with the harvest In December. I7e will H
carry with him Id rrnuartorn tea (tho avenging 'iVJjvJ
torch), and will not leave n single sugar-cane l
field which might i leld a direct or Indirect rev- 'fflfj
enue to the Spanish Government. .-flH
With regard to Maceo, he Is also provided T.flH
with arms and ammunition, received from re- vflVJ
cent expeditions, and he highly praises Dr. Joe- H
quln clel Castjllo of the Juntn-ln New' York, who VjvJ
htu dono everything onsstb'.e for him. Bat "sBjBJ
Maceo has sent commissioners nnd letters to H
the Junta telling that, notwithstanding hie .VflBj
strong poslt'on, he should not be forgotten. "l
Nothing like an attack on Havana can be BJ
expected for the presont. The real situation la vJjVJ
that Spain Is unable to overcome the rorolntlon iSJ
