f ; Havana. Nov. 23. Tho news of the election
; If of the Cuban President has greatly displeased
-. ? I J Gen. Dlanco, because Sefior Bartolom Maso,
"$.'' the now Prcsldont, is well known In Cuba for
W I ) '. his uncompromising hostility to Spain, and dur-
m J i ing the two years he will be President there is
";.'' I i v, ot tho least hope that any arrangement will be
?' f ', ? ' made between tho Cuban and Spanish Govern-
ft , ( f tnents.
l j v Even an attempt to treat with the military
Si' '' f" commanders scattered throughout the island,
T,,V' f v without regard to tho Cabinet. Is considered
- J usoless, as IlartolomiS Maso wields a decisive In-
bjf . , fluence over tho army, from Gen. Gomez down
J ' i f to tho last soldier.
; j. Gen. Blanco has sent the following despatch
S; i ! f to the Minister of the Colonies, Sefior Moret, In
f- if, Madrid:
$f- ; "The election in the Monigua of Bartolomo
t il ' C Maso as President grently complicates matters
'3.j i 5 with regard to a peaceful settlement in thee ast.
A ', 'f, Ho Is stubborn and proud of bis tenacity, which
S 5 '' E fflvos him some popularity among the young
:- ' ?.T men In the Cuban ranks. Any attempt to an-
p 1 I o proach him will, in my opinion, be unsuccessful
'js- '- ,i and, furthermore, the risk would also be In-
$f - ' curred that be would surely avail himself of the
;iV J' i , occasion to make a noise and pose once more as
S'v on Irreconcllnblc."
f, 5 ji Gen. Blanco wrote this despatch yesterday
y 3 ;; " and handed It to his adjutant for Immediate de-
-, '- s livery to the official who has In his keeping, in
v I '''. ' tne office of Secrotary Congosto, a floor below
if i ); that of tho Captain-General, the cipher cablo
B I - codo used In communications with the Minister
jV 'f ) ' tU8 Colonics. By a funny blunder the adju-
S" J ' ' tant delivered the despatch to tho press censor,
.,7 ? Sf , bolleringltwas some statement for the Spanish
'4t ' "'l ' proes, and the censor, who Is naturally vory
'mi i nlowin transmlttlngnny news, put the paper on
(.' i A .' his desk without reading it and lef t It thero for
fl 4 two hours under a paper-weight.
'. -,- r' It did not pass unno Iced by tbo visitors to his
i ;i j office, who are generally eager to obtain more
,. ''. ! nee thnn the press censor gives away. Whon
ii i ' tu,a zm,0U8 ofllclal himself read the despatch
f S ho was amazed, and hurried out of his office to
.' . ;: call personally on the Captain-General and ask
If ; f his Excellency It there was not a mistake In the
f?1 i' fi mutter. It was on excellent opportunity to
4? j iy read other papers which tho press official left
pi I; v behind him In his hurry, open to all eyes. When
4 ho roturncd ho had nothing In his bands. Tho
I', '.' ' despatch went through the regular oourso; the
adjutant will probably bo dismissed, and Oen.
f ', ' Blanco has ono more reason to complain, as he
V? )s docs every day, of the "disorder and lack of

U'hcrta. Tho National Sculpture Society Is
of tho unanimous opinion that no monument,
however meritorious, should bo constructed In
the space between Mfty-elghth street and tho
Fifth avonuo entrance to tho Central Park,
generally known nstho Plaza, which docs not
form n part of, or which would Interfere with
the satisfactory development of a comprehen
sive nnd artistlo design for this approach to the
Park: and
It'ierrat, By aet of Legislature of March
25. 1SIIU, "No statuo or piece of sculpture or
work of art of any sort. In tho nature of n public
monument or memorial, shall bo eroded or
placed upon any ground or within any build
ing belonging to tho city of New York, without
tho approsal of tho Mayor, tho President of
tha Hoard of Aldermin, tho Prosldcnt of
the National Sculpture Society (If such organ

tho Municipal Art Society, If then oxlstlng;" nnd
M'Aereaa, Tho IiCglslaluro rejected tho follow

Iwcn selected for n soldiers' monument In tho

proper nnd nrtlstlo treatment of this approach

Mrs. Isabel Hatschatcher, a widow, 03 years
old, who lived alone for many years In a single
room of a rear house at 13D Ten Eyck street,
Wllllnmsburg. was found dead Monday night
by Mrs. Susie Schepp, a distant relative. Cor
oner Nason made an Investigation yesterday,
and was of tho opinion that tho woman died of
starvation. Mrs. Hatschatchcr's husband died
twenty yoars ago, and hor live children died a
few months later. Until about two years ago.
when hor sight failed, Mrs. Hatschatcher was
able to support horsclt by doing tailoring
work. Last summer Mrs. Hatschatcher fell be
hind In her rent. She vainly tried to pay up.
Sho earned 05 cents last week, and sent 00 cents
to the landlord's agent.
On Sunday nlgbt. when Mrs. Hatschatcher
was seen last, she seem oil to bo downcast. Her
failure to appear beforo twilight on Monday nlzht
caused alarm, and Mrs. Schepp was sent after
her. Sho was unable to rnter tbo old woman's
room, nnd Policeman Klein forced In the door.
Mrs. Hatschatcher was dead In hor bed. On the
floor noar the door was an unopened letter from
the landlord's attorney, warning the woman
that unless the rent for her room was paid be
fore noon to-day she would be dispossessed. The
letter was probably shoved under the door by a
letter carrier after Mrs. Hatschatcher was al
ready dead.

FonT Sheridan, 111., Nov. 23. To-day's tes
timony before tho Military Board which Is hear
ing the charges against Capt. Loverlng bore
heavily agnlnst tho defendant. It went to show
that Capt Loverlng kicked Private Hammond,
prodded him with a sword and orderod him to
be dragged by the heels to the court,
Prlvato Hammond was put on the stand. Ho
tostifled that ho was dragged down tho steps
from tho guard house to the sidewalk. Lover
lng ordered the soldiers who dragged him to go
double quick, and followed ibis up by kicking
and prodding him so severely that he had to be
taken to the hospital. The cross-oxamlnatlon
was directed chiefly to an attempt to injure
Hammond's character.
It is expected that Loverlng will introduce
little If any testimony to-morrow, depending
upon the arguments of his counsel for acquittal.
The prodding with tbo sword will bo admitted,
and the plea of Justification entered.

An old cemetery, older than any other known
cemetery within the limits of Greater New
York, was discovered near Ryder's Pond, at tho
hood of Garrison's Creek, not far from Sheeps
head Bay. on Friday last by men who aro cut
ting Avenue V through to Ryder's Pond. It
was nn Indian cemetery, end must have been
noar oystor beds that doubtless had their ex
istence In Dead Horso Inlet or its vicinity.
The mon under Contractor Jonkins got to
about ninety yards from tho pond whon tho
pick of an Italian laborer went rattling Into a
bed of oystor shells. These were about nlno
Inches from the surface. Tho shells extended
about flvefcot In one direction and four In an
other. They were about 3 feet and 0 Inches
deep. Tho shells bad boen laid in with the outer
side up and piled In as one would pack books of
different sizes In a box.
After n whllo the diggers got down to sand
agnln. This sand wos about four feet and a
half from tho surface. One of the teamsters,
waiting for his wagon to bo loaded, saw
a strango large shell, as ho supposed,
tossed up by n shovel on his wagon.
This man was William Consldln, who lives
In Ryder's lano near by. Consldln picked
tho supposed Bholl up. nnd knockod a llttlo
block mould off of It. nnd then ho recognized
that It was bone. Finally bo madoout that It
was tho side of nman'B skull, Including an oye
aperture. This bone was carried to the dump
with tho rest of the load. ....
The teamsters found also somo bits of pottory
as big as ono's hand In some cases. These wero
"smooth as glass on ono side and all rough nn
tho other. Tho rough sldo had a lot of marks
all over It Just as If they'd tried to draw birds
or animals on it. Snvo thorn things t Naw.
thoy was busted I tell you, ond weren't any
good. Yos. they went to the dump, too, besides
somo other bones about as big as a broom han
dle, nnd somo ribs, too."
Tn o mora of theso shell-filled holes wore found
on Frlday.and live orslxon Saturday. Tbotoam
sters, who did no loading, amusod themselrosby
picking out some of tho larger bones, and after
looking them over, tossed thorn Into the wag
ons to bo carried down to tho dump, where
tho roadway had to bo raised Instoad of
lowered. In all, at least twelve, and probably
llfleen, of those graves wero cut Into. As
thero wero so many of tho graves, tho men
couldn't holp noticing some peculiarities of
construction.
First of all, at the surface wore a lot of shells
scattered and broken by ploughs. Thoso broken
shells wore mixed with nine inches or moro of
black soil. Then came the mnss of shells. There
was a different kind of shell, called tho peri
winkle, thero, too. In some of tho graves thero
was one only, at least tho careless onlookers
found no more, and In the othors were two.
Tho smaller of the shells, where thero were
two, was about elshteon inches from tho sur
faco. and a foot beneath was a btggor nerlwlnkle
shell. In a grnvo which was dug Into by a re
porter the small periwinkle shell was three
inches long, and a foot lowor was found another,
ten Inches long.
Under the oyster shells was found black
mould mixed with fragments of bone. Tho
lurgcr periwinkle shell may have been placed
over the faco of the dead person. Tho mould at
the bottom of tho gravel Is mixed with red
sand, and below It Is the gray beach sand.
OIRL PICKETS IS COURT.
Tbey Went There to Tr-sliry Against a Ken
Union Slater The Errand Vain.
The strike somo weeks ago of the cllpsorters,
who prepare cuttings of cloth for remanufac
turlnglnto cheap cloth, had a sequel Injustice
Goldfoglc's court in Clinton street yesterday
morning. Tho courtroom was nearly filled
with girls who aro members of Cllpsorters'
Union No. 1. Somo of them hod been "pickets"
during the strike at Kaplan & Grossman's fac
tory In Elizabeth street, and they came to tes
tify on behalf of Mosos Steinberg, an employing
cllpsorter. against whom Minnie Barron, an
employee, had brought BUlt for $7.50, which she
said was duo as a balance of wages. Tho
pickets were oager to testify, not from any re
gard for Stoinberg, but because Minnie was
accused of being a non-union cllpsorter.
Minnie said she worked for a week and part
of another weok for Steinberg. The rest of the
week, she said, she was ill. Steinberg says that
Instead of being Ills he was working for Kaplan
& Grossman during the strike. Tbo union clip
sorters cost disdainful glances at Minnie and
exchanged sarcastlo remarks about her per
sonal appearance.
"Just look at the artful thing." said one of
them: "you'd think butter wouldn't melt In her
mouth." J
"Oh. the scabl" said another. "Theldea of
her taking the bread out of our mouths."
Ono or two of the pickets tostifled that they
had seen Minnlo working at Kaplan & Gross
man's while they wero on ploket duty during
the strike On tho other hand a representative
of Kaplan & Grossman testified that the girl
did not go to work there until the Monday fol
lowing the strike, and tho preponderance of evl
lence appearing to be on Mlnnio's side, she won.
The union girls wero dlsgustod.

DIB FALSE ARREST A KLONDIKE.
Lots or Lawyers Want to Sne This County an
Dctanir or George Walker, Colored.
Georgo Walker, tho negro who was brought
here from Pittsburg a few days ago by Detective
William Brown on tho mistaken supposition
that bo was the Georgo Walker wantod here for
murder, was discharged from custody yesterday
by Judgo McMuhon In tho General Sessions,
District Attorney Olcott said that a vory
giavo mlsttko had been made, and addod:
"Ihe county ought to pay this man's far
back; It paid his fare here."
" 1 think tbo county would be lucky to get off
ns cheap ns that," remarked Judgo MoManon,
Mr. Olcott naked Walker how It felt to bo ar
rested by mistake, and Walker answerod:
" 1 wob scured to death that New Yorkers
might also bang ma by mistake."
A dozen lawyers gathered about Walker as be
was le'iving the court room, and begged blm to
stay in town and suo the county. Walker said
ho probably would, hut he wanted to go home
to Pittsburg first. He said thero was no hurry
about engaging counsel, Then the lawyers
effaced themselves.

DOFTALO, Nor. 23. Tho Hon. BU Clair Mo
Kolwayot Brooklyn spoke to-night beforo the
Liberal Club hero on " Municipal Methods and
Morals." Ho said, In part:
"Where did you get tho natno Liberal I That
is a dangerous word down Brooklyn way. In
politics It means Mugwumplan. A Mugwump
is a man of so much conscience in politics
that he accords very little, if any, to thoso
who differ from him. His oppononts retal
iate by saying that ho Is n Pharisee.
Tho Pharisoo Is about tho only Scriptural
character who docs duty in politics. Yet so far
as loan make out tho Pharisee was an organ
ization man. He certainly onrolled. Ho always
stood by his order. Ho uphold tho rights of tho
party. I never hoard of tho Pharlsco Joining n
good government club, or of ono that bol tod tho
regular ticket, Tho Pharisee boasted that ho
had always submlttod to campaign assessments
for tho good of tho party.
" Moreover, 'Liberal ' Is a dangerous word In
theology, down Brooklyn way. Tho Liberal
theologians long ago knockod hell out of religion
in order that the liberal or Mugwump states
men might raiso it In politics, with tho vory re
cent result of mnklng a United States Sonator
loso his chance of eternal salvation) Nothing is
moro hazardous than liberalism In theology, ex
cept liberalism In politics.
"Tho people have deliberately arrangod to
have municipal questions considered only In mu
nicipal times. Tho endonvor to force on othor
questions out of their Umo, or beforo thoir timo,
was a negation of tho popular mandate Wo were
all very much excited and called ono another
very hard names, w.illo that endeavor was
put forth. Wo all of us got very red In tho f nco,
and wore too mad to bo suitably ashamed. Ono
may doubt that any political party will aver
again seek to mako tho pcoplo of tho cities
mix unrelated subjocts. Campaigns against tho
. constitutional order will bo rcgardod as energy
ngalnst nature. What Is absurd in charactor
will not be solemnized by calling It politics.
Tho great facts that have been learned Justify
tho confidence that Fomo of the grant facts still
to bo loomed will bo duly ncauircd. And a vast
utd to their ncqulaitlun will bo tho acceptance
of tho principle that municipal questions havo
nothing to do with Statu or national Issues. Let
us call this proposition tho Municipal Principle
"Reflect what a g ln this will bo to clear and
candid thinking. Tell oil In your minds for a
moment some ut tho uxtlllng unil dividing sub
jects which it will exclude from consideration in
inunicitml contests. Only tho questions which
can ba carried to tho City Hall for Rolutlon
or for settlement can bo enrried Into elec
tions for oflUlals, whoso dutlca must bo per
formed tn thoCIty Hall or Its auxiliary buildings,
Sympathotlcitll), the great questions of national
und of Stuto concern will bo better considered
when considered In their proper tlmo and over
tho area which thoy cover. That was a great
municipal victory in New York and a groat vic
tory for the municipal prlnciplo, Botwcen Tam
many und the Citizens' Union was only a differ
enca affecting propositions, of uhlch all were
exclusively local, plus the dlffcrcnco affecting
candidates, of whom nil wcroplodgcd to what I
huvo tcrmod the municipal prlnciplo In its most
inclusive and exclusive sense.
Existing parties aro moro likely to respect a
constitutional mindato and tha public demand
thnn not. They tike to win. and they like to de
serve to win. Thoy know that they can do
neither it thoy longer try to mix Issues
which cannot be mado to concur In tlmo
or to assimilate In quality. Tha feeling
which attaches a man to his party Is
tbe samo as that which attaches him to his
church, to his lodge, to his fratcrnul society,
to tho alumni organization of lila college. There
Is absolutely no non-partisan in the world.
Your political non-partisan will bo a church
partisan. Your church liberal will be u medi
cal partisan, nnd If one bo a partisan in nothing
else, bo stands up for his social or educational
orderugainst all comers. Tho thing to do Is to
exalt and to exploit municipal issues In munic
ipal times, and to call that municipal politics,
'lhat done, let men bo us partisan as
thoy pleuso, if, by so being, human
nature, or. If you plonse, human preju
dices, can bo put to the service of good govern
ment. The mulll-purtisan experiment, now
coming to nn end In Now York city, owes 118
failures to its multl-partlsanshlp. and ItB suc
cesses cither to tho straight partisanship of
somo of Its departments, or to tho fortunnto
discovery of ono or two phenomenal men who
aro absolutely destitute of Bpocinl political pre
possessions. "Tbo number of men definable as Independ
ents In any great community will probably
never bo moro than enough to award success
to ono or tho other of tbo permanent political
parties. Thoy must uso either party ns a
Mall for the back of tbe other when It goes
wrong. Their experiment of forming a party
by themselves has generally resulted In tho
success of tho less desirable of tho two per
manent pirtles, whichever ono that may be
nt tho time. These independents may deem
It to bo their duty to persist In separata party
expression and endeavor, but they must, lu
that caso, abandon for a long time tho ex
pectation of putting thoir principles or thoir
men into power. Nor can thov do that
without becoming themselves atllictcd with
somo of tho evils of existing political parties.
Rings will form within reform. Loaders wilt be
come morally anil spiritually Indlstlncuishnblo
from bosses. Intellectual and social superiority
will tond to make their bosslsm rather moro of
fensive than the crudor kind. Thoro will ba a
mingled insolence and condescension In their at
tltudo or they will be credited with an attitude
of that kind.
"Too many of their leaders propose to givo
correct principles, dcsirablo tone, accurate In
struction, and useful Information to constituen
cies which have nskeil them to give them
nothing and which do not regard themselves as
needy beggars or mendicant seckors. Tho
plain people, whoso wishes are honest, whose
practical Judgment is eane, whoso in
stincts aro Intuitively sound, and whoso dis
criminations are acuto and, on tho whole. Just,
want good government Itself as a present from
nobody, and rather than tako It ub a gift, they
would havo an inferior sort of government.
If only tho Initlutlro of it should bo with
them. Every day of every month of ovory
year tho top Blngularly misunderstands the
bottom In our metropolis, nnd the bottom, which
does understand itself, is now on top. The
greatest compensation, the greatest consolation
and tho greatest ground for hope aro in tho fact
that tho bottom put itBclf on top by deliberately
proclaimed adhesion to what I havo called the
municipal principle to the exclusion of every
other.
"The reform organizations should originate
with the plain people, not aloof from them, to
be offered to them. I muBt confess that my as
sociation with the leaders of reform move
ments In Brooklyn and In New York tonds
to impress mo with tbo fact that, whllo their
ethical equipment Is complete and while their
moral courage Is admirable, they aro somehow
out of personal touch and personal sympathy
with the groat masses the men who have thiir
way, but who mean woll, too. Perhaps this
wanting sonsltdlity. this missing gumption, will
come with time. Every cnmnalgn should give
to us some of it. Not municipal parties, but
municipal politics. Not tbe municipal party,
but the municipal principle should bo our solici
tude and our shibboleth.
