merly Spanish Minister to tho Unltod States. a
brlof summary of which was cabled to Tna
Bun, has boon reoeivod here by mall. Befior
de Lome, after saying that overtures for peace
should havo been raado after tho glorious fight
on July 1 near Santiago, and that there was an
excellent opportunity for peace now, when tho
Americans hnd discovered how unworthy tho
Cubans are, added that Spain should not recog
nize tho Indopondenco of Cuba, but should
hand over tho island to tho Unltod States, who
would protoct the loyal Inhabitants from tha
vongeance of tho " rebel scum."
When asked where haplacodtho blame for
tho disasters that have befallen Spain, Beflor
de Lome replied: "Tho Government, the army
and navy, the diplomatists and tho party poli
ticians havo all sinned. Tha fatherland has
sinned mortally. Its patriotism and all Its
actions have been passive It has not striven
to nchluro anything; consequently It has
achieved nothing, Tho only thing wo can do
now Is to repent and reform, If we have not
known how to defond tho country we received
from our fathers, let us see that our sons do
bettor."
A despatch to Lloyds' from Gibraltar says
that the lights at Almlna Point and Ceuta have
been extinguished by the Spanish authorities.
Madmd. July 20. The question of expelling
foreign correspondents from Spain is growing

News and thnee to Porto Hleo was resumed
to-day, Geu. Grant and his staff dopartlng with
tho Ptrst Kentucky. Tho remainder ot tho
Third Ilrigado of the First Division and the
attached battalion ot the Sixteenth Pennsyl
vania are to follow to-morrow It the railroad
has tho cars on hand. This brigade is being
transported by tho Southern Hallway, accord

lent Borne cars to tho Cincinnati Southern to

To-morrow morning tho rifth Illinois, tho
Third BatUllen or the Sixteenth Pennsylvania,
tho Third Kentucky, and the Brigade Hospital
and Ambulanco Corps will break camp and

Now trouble has come to the Ninth New Tork.
Tho appointment of Second Lieut. Peek to bo
Adjutant is causing it. Cuot. Qulinby helped
to secure the election of Col. Greene, and ho
claims that he received a promise of promotion.
Capt. William F. Morris of Company K, another
man who helped ln Col. Greene's election, sup
ported Capt. Quimby for the place. In view of
tho selection of Lieut. Peck Instead of Capt
Quimby, he handed ln his resignation yester
day. Another resignation handed In to-day Is that
of Lieut. Wlllcocks of Company O. Nothing is
said by any one against the ability of Lieut
Peok. Tha gist ot tho trouble lies lntho desire
of tho ofllpera to see tho ranking offlcors pro
moted. Capt. Walton of Company 1). who re
signed, was ranking Contain, with Copts. Cole
burg and Thompkins following.
Adjutant Peok. Is succeeded by Capt. W. A.
Angus ot the Fourteenth New York. Capt
Walton will probably be sneceaded by Lieut.
Myers of Company D. Capt. Orydeot Company
F Is likely to be succeeded by Oeorgo T. Hardy,

aeancies yet to be filled.

it that ho will recommend that It bo selected.
This means that very likely tho New York boys

sands of Now Yorkers.
Itwsjiavory quick trip that tho head of the

of tho flno view from tho top of tho higher
mounds. At 7:.10 thoy loft, rcaohlng Long
Island City at 10 o'clock. Gen. Sternberg
frankly expressed his delight with the place.
"It would bo Imposilblo to Imagine a finer spot
for a camp." said he. "particularly for soldiers
who havo boen undergoing n hard campaign In
n trying cltmato and nro ran down In eonso
quonce. The place Is sanitary, fho air Is glori
ously bracing and Invigorating, there Is fresh
wntor In ahundanco, and access by land or
water. I havo Inspected tho ground as far
as I could lu tha limited Mmo, and It Is
just tho spot on which I'd like to
havo a summer house. For our mon, ener
vated by tho effecte of the trorlcal sun and
rains, such an atmosphere would be the best
tonlo possible. All the natives that I saw wore

Montauk Point Is the extreme eastern end of
Long Island, about ItH) miles from this city,
and was originally an island ltHolr.but has lieqn
Joined to the larger island by the washing ln of
sand for hundreds of years. This sand stretoh
Is Infosted with millions of mosquitoes, whloh
have discouraged travel so effectually thatiintll
within ten years, although tho point has been
settled for more than 20t years, there were not
ndmien buildings on It. It is ton miles long,
about a mile and a half wido botwepn
tho ocean on tho south and tho. Sound on tho
north, and is a rolling grassland, entirely tree
less save for the H Ither Wood at the northwest
end, and a small island in one or the bodies of
fresh water. There are two fresh water ponds
of considerable slro and a number of smaller
ones, nil very olenr and teeming with fish.
In tho hollows betweon the hummocks nro
marshes, but for Bomo reason theso do not
breed mosquitoes. Excellent wntar may be
struck by sinking a well from tan to twenty
feet ln almost any of these hollows. Outside of
the two stretohoa of woodland tho main vegeta
tion Is the barbary oak or pepporago. whloh
grows In clumps thirty yards In dlamotor and
eight feet high, affording Impeiietrablo sheltor
for foxes, mink, skunks and other email ani
mals. Every wind Is a sea breezo on Montauk. and
the summer tomperutura even in the hottest
weather Is ten or fifteen degrees lowerthan
thot of this city. Within n fewyenrs tho Long
Island nail road has extended its 1 no three
fourths of tho way along the north shore. De
sldos this means of access, there is aplorat
Fort Tond Day. at which small steamboats can
land. If the point Is selected as a camp site a
large pier will be built. Tho distance from the
Connecticut shore Is only twelve miles. De
scendants of tho original Montaukett Indians
still have hunting rights on tho point, but as
thorn are not half a dozen ot them left it is not
anticipated that they will resent an occupation
by Uncle Sam's forces.

ot the Daily Mail corroborates the statement
cabled to Tns Bum from the IMUuXna on Fri

exception ot Great Britain, had arrived at an
agreement on the question of tha Philippines.
Heaaya:
"There are excellent reasons for believing
that after protraoted negotiations, ohlefly
through Madrid and Berlin, the powers have
come to a formal agroemont on the fu
ture ot the Philippines. They will oppose
their retention by tho United Statos. should
that be the intention ot tho American Govern
ment. They will also oppose the cession of the
whole or part ot the archipelago to any othor
nation.
"Tho Philippines will remain in the posses
sion of Spain, though It is not yet known under
what conditions. It any, they will be chiefly
commercial. No part of tho croup will be alien
ated from Spain. Tho negotiations which lad
to the agreement originated with and were

that tho Government, through the Quartermas-ter-Genoral's

gotiations for tho leasing ot a tract of land near
Morrlstown for tho purpose ot establishing
there a camp of military instruction similar to

Tho property selected for such use consists of
farm land partly wooded and can easily bo sup-
filed with excellent water, for which this eoun
y is famous. It Is not far from, the railroad,
and one of the chief reasons for the selection of

ARREST IX THE BRANT MURDER CASE.
Brother of the Victim's Former Wife the
Prisoner Brant Wns to Remarry Her.
St. Louis, July 20. Tho police have not ye
caught the two mon who shot and killed
Charles A. Brant last night in tho presence ot
many witnesses at Twenty-flret and Locust
streets, a few blocks from hit home at 2732
Washington street, but to-night George Hor
ding, brother ot Brant's former wlfo, was ar
rested on suspicion. Brant was a stenographer
employed by the St Louis Electric Manufactur
ing Company. The men waylaid him, and
the people coming from a summer garden near
by saw the flash ot their pistols, but the assas
sins mingled with the crowd and escaped.
Brant waa dead when the police come. In his
pocket was a will drawn upon Sunday directing
that his body be burled in Dellefontalne Ceme
tery, and that his " wife before God " Inherit all
his property. Brant married Mary A. Harding, a
daughter of Roger E. Harding, a rich St Louis
speculator. In 1800. Her father and brother
opposed the marriage. In April lost the Drants
wero divorced. The husband and wife both
declared that her relatives separated thom.
They were on the eve ot a reconciliation it Is
said.
In Drant's pocket with tho will, was found a
letter arranging for an elopement and a re
marriago. Tho Ink showed that the letter had
just been written. It was addressed to "Miss
Mary A. Harding, Devoport Inn. Asbury Park.
N. J." Anothor letter, dated " Asbury Park,
July 23," and signed "Your own devoted
wlfcllng," also referred to tho proposed re
marriage and to a trip to Asbury Park, which
Brant seemsto have contemplated.
An all-night search by the detectives and of
ficials of the Coroner's office revealed lit
tle besides except the history ot Brant's
unhappy marrlod life. This story Brant told
In fragments to Lou Finnegan, also a sten
ographer at the works where Brant was em
ployed. Brant sold he first met his wife ln
Los Angeles, Cal., where he was a olerk In a
hotel. He bow her from tlmo to time for about
six months, and then she wont to Europo with
her father. For nearly four years he did not
soe her. although thoy kept up a correspon
dence. When ho first mat tho Hardlngs he said that
the father seemed to be kindly disposed toward
him. until It became apparent that he wanted
to marry UIbs Hording. The Hardlngs returned
to St Louis, and at the suggestion of Miss
Harding Brant camo on. When ho spoke to
the senior Harding regarding the marriage the
father sold: " It's no use my objecting, because
you will get married anyhow,"
Tho wedding took place at tho Harding resi
dence on Page avenue, and the father and tho
brother. Goorge Harding, wero both present
The Drants' wedded life was short and un
happy. Brant was oprressed by his Inability to
support his wife In tho style she had been ao
oustomed to, and Anally seeing that his tack of
moans was a source ot unhapplnoss to lus wife
he allowed her to get a dlvoroe.
She came East from California about three
fonths ago, sho and her father stopping at tho
lantors' Houuo. Brant followed from Ros
nseles. and met Mr. Harding; at the Planters'.
The meeting was not a satisfactory one for
Brant, and after it Harding and his daughter

no explanation of tho statement.
Seorge Harding was arrested at 10 o'clock

scene of the assassination, on suspicion of
having been Implicated ln It
Ho was Intoxicated, so, much so tliat ho could
scarcely speak Intelligibly. He was taken to
the Four Courts and placed ln a strong cell to
sober up.
A young lawyer named Cattleman was with
Harding. He aoonmpanled tho prisoner to tho
Four Courts, whore he told Capt. Piokell
that Harding was In the Manhattan at
2 o'clock this morning, four hours after
tho murder, and said that lie would

pram from tits father requesting him to do bo.
Harding did leave the city on a morning train,
going to Do Soto. Mo., returning this evening
and going at once to the Manhattan, where ho
was captured.
When arrested Harding's coat eleave was badly
torn. This. Castleman, his friend, claims was
