The first regular monthly meeting following the annual election of offloers for the ensuing year of tbo Union League Clnb, held 1n January last, was beld last evening. The new Presi dent, Ellhu Root, presided, and as he took the chair mado an address which was applauded by the club and ordored printed. These aro some of the things Mr. Root said: "The enormous and continued growth of the pension rolls a third of a century after tho closo of tho civil war has been accompanied by wide spread nnd repeated charges of wholesalo fraud, until tho roll, that should bo nil honor, is covcrod with suspicion, and the annual pay ments, which should bo made frcoly nnd grate fully, aro mado grudgingly and angrily on tho part of many honest and genuine Americans. Tho honor of tho army and navy of tho civil war demands that tho cloud be cleared away; that If the disgraceful Imputation bo not true, It should be refuted and sot at rest forever, and If It bo truo, that the wrong sboula bo re dressed; that the rolls should be purged and tho lists of honor be freed from tho companion ship of fraud. Until this Is dono the very pur pose and original mission of this club romalns unfulflllod. "The same obstaclos to the free and effcctlvo expression of tho popular will which tho club found tnlrty years ngo at tho polos and attacked with triumphant forco still oxlst to-day at tho primaries. Our present method of securing fair elections requires tbat tho citizen who really has opportunity to express his will should havo a volco tn determining what names should bo printed on tho ballots. Tbo oxcrclso of this lignt of nomination has now no adequate pro tection against fraud and corruption. "Fraud and corruption hnve In fact deprived tho peoplo of their voice In tho selection of can didates in so ninny instances tbnt thero Is a widespread public demand for the samo kind of reform in tho law regarding nominations that wo commenced thirty years ngo regarding elec tions. Tho problem Is tho samo; tho methods to bo pursued aro In general tho samo; tbo neces sity Is equally vital and Imperative It is of thu hlghost conscqucnco that tho legislative roomdy bo swift. Just, practicable and oflectlvo to really sccuro a full.frco opportunity for every citizen. In his own pnrty. to hae his volco In the nomination of candidates whoso names shall bo placed upon tho official ballot. No Govern ment founded upon popular will can possibly llvu whllo tho people are denied tho opportunity to express that will. ,. "Anothor duty rests upon u?.

In method care ful and considerate, seeking always the courso of peaceful administration, but nt heart always foarlcss, who novcr tpcaks too soon, but Is al ways ready when the occasion comes, has sounded tho clear nolo of national honor and fnltb. Tho House of Itopicscntntlvcs, the Poo plo's House,' has responded to his call, but tho Scnnto of tbo United States has answered by a sullen doclnratlon of ndherenco to tho policy of repudiation und dishonor. This very year tbo Jcoplo of tho United States aro lo declnro their udgment upon tho Issues, and, by tho election of a now Congress and of many Senators, to Bay whether thoy stand with McKtnlcy nnd tho Houbc or with Tollorand Murphy In tho Sen ate.

Im mediately; not n week, not a dny, should bo lost In commencing tho BtKcrasIvo steps nccersory to mnrsbul tho forces at the polls In Novombor. "In practical performance thetwo duties which I hnvo last described coincide. If tho country speaks at tho next election for McKInley nnd tho House, It must bo by tho election ot tho can didates nominated bv the licpubllcnn party. The prepondcrnnt forcos cf Brynnlsni are surely forming tho lines of Dcmocrotic organi zation upon tho opposing side. Outsldo of thesu two organizations thero Is no possibility o1 effective action. The Itopiibllcnn party In this Stato le dhldcd. It is divided by local ques tions, by personal questions, by organizations for tbo redress of evils ncrmlttcd by our lax and inefficient primary laws. The divisions aro upon lines of principle, which will not be sur rendered, which, as 1 think, ought not to be sur rendered, and which, speaking for myself, 1 shall not surrender under any circumstances I can roncelvo. "But tho division Is not upon tho groat and overwhelming issuo formed between the na tional parties. It is not upon any great Issue of Republican Inltb. Upon every question to be decided at the next election thcro Is a common principle, n common sympathy, and a common purpose. It needs tut the working out ot a fair and pra:tlcal opportunity tor common action upon that Held, Irrespective of all other fields, to produce tbnt union of effort which will In spire confidence, add strength to courage, sub stitute hope for despondency, nnd result In vic tory. A primary law enacted by tho present Legislature. If It be really Just, really practi cal, and really effective, will atloid that oppor tunity, for upon Its just basis every citizen of tho Stato who stands by McKInley and tbo House, for national honor and fulth. for Indi vidual frecdum nnd personal rights, for tho prin ciples of tho American Revolution against the Easslonsof the French Revolution, may havo Is equal volco in sclecMng the cnndldatos for whom ho "111 vote nnd tho party olllccrs whoso leadership ho U to follow.

Seldl Subscription Cenoert. The eighth Scldl subscription concert, which took place last evonlng In the gay ballroom of the Astoria, was a brilliant and successful affair. Tbe audience was as agreeable to look at, with its kaleldoscoplo mingling of pretty colors, as the music was delightful to hear. Beethoven's Symphony No. 0 In O minor, Mendelstohn's Violin Concerto, and the third of Massenet's Ave suites for orcbostra mado up tbe rropramine. Everything wus admirably played, Seldl conducting with that consummate easo aud skill with which he has long ago taught audiences how u master leader bandies tbe baton. Tho acoustics of tho Astoria muslo room aro Infinitely bettor since tho carpet has been removed, und each pbrnso gained notice ably from this change. Henri Marteau was the soloist. Ho won an ovation, replying to a vociferous encore, by plii)log the fuguo from Bseh's tlrst violin sonata In G minor, Tho concert closed with typical French muslo Massenet's Suite, His work is the extreme of talent, but could never bomlstakon for genius. His thoughts are surfneo thoughts, his feel ing tbe outward shell of fancy where In lies no kernel of genulno emotion never theless Massenet always attracts and holds attention, winning admiration also by his clever devices and nls dashing manner, Tbeso "Fairy Scenes" are not often played here. Of them all the "Procession" ana "Apparition" are most worthy of note. Boston Speaks for tbe Gold Standard. Boston, Feb. 10.

Pando arrived hero very unexpectedly, for It was reported tho day before at tho polnco that he bad left Glbara for ManzAtilllo. Tbo object of his sudden appear anco was to warn tho press against saying anything concerning tho failure ot Blanco's ex cursion to tbo cast. Pando had no sooner ar rived than ho summoned to the palaco the edi tors of all the Havana papers and said to them: "If directly or Indirectly or by words of dou ble meaning or Ironical phrases you refor to tho failure of tho trip of Blanco, tho failure ot au tonomy, the failure of the prospects of future peace, or mention In any way our strained rela tions with tho United States, I shall havo tho paper immediately suppressed and its editor sent to Spain." It is needless to say that editorials aro being prepared on tbo success of Blanoo's trip, on tho great advantages already gained by autonomy, the euro prospects of coming peace, and tho friendly relations existing betrreen Spain and the United States. The muzzling of the press Is to-day worse than In the palmy days of Weyler, and It Is very difficult to get any news through tho military censors If tho despatches are not oxactly in accord with tho official re ports. Blanco has had the mlsfortuno to havo n few dlsogreoablo things colncldo with his trip to tho oast. Tho first was that whon ho arrived nt Manzsnlllo, cherishing tho hopo of embracing Rnbl nnd RIos, ho loomed that they wcro hav ing a terrillo fight with tho combined columns of Linares and Luauc, In which fight tho son of his great friend Gen. Luquo was mortally wounded. On arriving nt Snntlago do Cuba fprty young" men of tho best-known families. In stead of waiting to receive htm, left tho city on the quiet, tbo same day, to join tho Insurgent forces; nnd nt tho other places he visited he had a very cold reception, only the few ofllco seekers npw calling themselves Autonomists going to wrlcomo him. Tho Spanish Conservatives as Well as tho Cuban olemont abstained from any demonstration. Tbo olllccrs ot tho Mnlno on their arrival did not go to pay tbolr respects to each of tho Au tonomist Ministers, who consider themselves at tho hood of the Government, and this has wounded tho susceptlblo feelings of those worthy gentlemen, who, wishing to show tho Americans how deeply thoy ha o felt the slight, asked Dupuy do Lomo to prevail on the French Iegnilon at Washington to order tho officers of tbo Dubourdlen to call on them on their arrival, as thoy did. Thoy felt much elated over this, and the pa pers yesterday published long articles on tho friendliness or the French for tho Spanish na tion and on French politeness and diplomacy, Tho visit was returned with great pomp by tho Ministers, who will gtvo a banquet to tho French officers as a proof cif their gratltudo. American politeness and diplomacy are quoted at present very low In tho r-panlsh market, but strange to say, tho Germans whllo here did tho Bntuo as tho Americans, Ignoilng the auBcep tlblo Autonomists. Yet no mention is mado of their Bin of omission. Miss Clara Barton, nccompanlcd by Mr. El wcll, nrrlvcd this morning. No members of tso Spanish Red Cross Snulety went to meet her. She drovo to tho Hotel Ingluterra, where sho has secured rooms. Tho Spanish Red Cross Socloty published on last Sunday an nrtlclo In tbo Onion. Cunstducioncil. saying that they could not contlnuo their work, as thoy hnd no more money, which they aver wai spontln sending back to Spain -10,000 sick soldiers. The nrtlclo is designed merely as an excuss for not joining Miss Barton in the work which sho In tends to undcrtako In nursing and aiding needy Cubans, something tbo Spanish Red Cross Society has novcr dono. Tbo giving of food and other supplles'to the starring Cubans as n gift from the Amcrlain people Is creating amour the poor and needy classes a deep sentiment of lovo and gratltudo. On last Sunday, whllo I was at Marlanao wit nessing tho distribution of relief to several hun dred half-starved women and children, I saw this fact demonstrated. An old woman, a Canary Islander, w as very profueo In her thanks to tho ladles who had just given to her her share of eatulilcs. Ono of tbe ladles remarked tbat It was not they whom she should thank, but tho American Government and people. She nnswered: "May God bless them and their King." A young Cuban girl quite Indignantly said to tho old womun: "Not the King. He wanted to Btnrvo us. Mny God bless the Presldont." Judging from tills, tho young King Is not at all liked, while President McKInley Is be coming, very popular among tho reconcentrados. Spain Is resorting to all sorts of ways to In fluence tho Cubans to lay down their arms and accept what they call autonomy. 8everal la dles, wives ot promlnont Spaniards of the city, have prepared a petition, which they are carrying from house to bouse, bogglnir ttic most promlnont Cuban young girls to sign it, and especially thoso wlin have relatives in tho field. Tho peti tion read: "We, tho undersigned, in the nnmo of God and of humanity, beg tho Cubans tn lay down their arms and stop this devastating war and bloodsbed, accenting the generous and liberal concessions of Spain." It Is nsedlcss to say that tho request for signa tures has been flatly refused In many houses. Since tho death of Arnnguren a great many young men have gone to tho flold. and his grave has boon constantly kept covered with fresh flowers. No ono knows who brings them. O EX.

Tho yacht Buchaneer, owned by tbo editor of tho Now York Journal, was fined by tho Custom House authorities In Havana $500 for coming to this port without clearanco papors. Consul-General Leo protested against tho flno on the ground tbat a yacht should enjoy lliosnme privileges as a warship, and is thoref ore f roo from the restrictions placed unon a merchant vessel. Tho Spanish authorities thon notified Mr. Leo tbat tho lino would bo withdrawn with tbe un derstanding that tho yacht should not visit Cuba ugulu while tbe war continues. I ho owner of tho yacht, howevor, has ordered his men to pay tho rlno under protest, and at tbe Bime tlmo to reject all the conditions Im posed by tbo Spanish authorities. Instructed to Wnlcb far Filibusters. Washington, Fob. 10. Tho Treasury Depart ment to-day sent Instructions to the Collectors of Customs nt Jacksonville, Tampa, and Key West to look out for a filibuster expedition which has been reportod as about to loavo the southern roast of Florida, The Instructions were based on a report received from Tampa. It Is thought that the recont movements of the filibuster tug Dauntless may be connected with tbe projected expedition. The Dauntless steamed Into the harbor of Savannah this morn ing, returning from her work of towing vessels over the bar. fjhe was searched at horn hart by sailors from tbo revenue cutter Boutwell, stationed at Savannah, but nothing of n sus picious nature wns found. The Fodcral olllccrs are keeping a close Watch on the tug to prevent her from conncctlngAvlth tho rumored expedi tion from the Florida roast. Believing tbe Starving Cubans, In a letter dated Fpb, 4, from Conaul-General Lee to tbe Contral Cuban Relief Committee, the Consul-General says tbnt tho suppllos received have thus fr been distributed In Havana and outlying towns, over 7,000 of the destitute peo ple being dally fed. Thoro are nearly 30,000 of them In tbo city of Havana alone. As soon as ample provisions arrive, it Is Gen, Leo's purpose to send them by wator to Matanzas, Srgua, and other distant points on tho Island that cannot be reached by the railroads. The steamship companies, agree to transport the articles ut half price.' The committee will send a large load of sup plies direct to Matanzas on tbo next steamer. Daniel H. Zdtmenl Better. Daniel S.
