Tho question of cus tomsdutlesand regulations for Cuba and Porto Woo was brought to the attention ot tho Cabi net to-day by a protest mado to the President by representatives of tho Pennsylvania Stool Company nnd the Maryland Bteel Company, who own Iron mines In Cuba. They com platnod that tho ratos put In eftect by the military authorities wore much moro onorous thun those under Bpanlsh rule, and unless Bomo modifications wore made they would be com pel led to ctoso their plants in Pennsylvania and Maryland, as the Cuban ore was neces sary In tho manufacture of stool. Special privileges woro granted theso companies by ths Bpanlsh Government, their vossols being exomptod from port charges and an export tax of 5 cents a ton Imposed. Under the mini mum Cuban tariff lmposod by tho military authorities tho special privileges enjoyod by the companies were swept away, and thoy would be compelled to pay port oharges ot 20 cents por reglstored ton on vessels entering at Uantlago In addition to tho export tar of 6 coats per ton on ore. This, they olalm, was prohibitive Itwasdcoldod by tho Cabinet that the ton nage duos undor the present arrangements wero too high. The oharges wero, therefore, reduced from '20 to 10 conW per ton, and made to apply only to vessels carrying cargo. The export duty of 5 cents per ton was abolished. As tho registered tonnago of a vossol Is almost half her dead weight capaolty. tho Iron companies will therefore pay nbout the same diaries f cents por ton as before tho now regulations wero put into effect, for shipping gcnorally tlio reduction In ton nage dues Is of matorlal bonoflt. as under tho Bpanlsh regulations these dues wore covered br a tax of SI on each ton of merchandise. The Cuban and Porto Iticnn tariffs are yet under consideration by the Administration. Many changes In the minimum Bpanlsh rates havo already been mado. and mots are In con templation. Tho Spanish customs laws pro hibited tho Importation of cigars and ciga rettes, but (tils has been eliminated, and the rate of import duty fixed at f 4.60 por pound, with a firoHiect of a reduction beforo tho tariff is of lclslly promulgated. Thu Internal revenue taxes on tobacco to bo applied to Cuba are bolng prepared by the War Dcpartmont. Tho ratos will follow very closely thoso Imposed by the WBr Reve nue bill which wero 12 cents a pound on manufactured tobacco and snuft; S3.U0 per 1.000, on cigars weighing more than three pounds to tho 1.000; $1.50 per 1,000 on ciga rettes weighing not moro than three pounds to the 1.000, and SI per 1.000 on all tobacco ciga rettes weighing not moro than three pounds to the 1,000. s A STAltCa TUAT KILLED. Attorney Aokerson of Niagara Falls Mattel a Charge Agalmt Officers at Camp Alger, Niioini Pallb, N. Y.. Aug. 6. Attorney F. M. Ackerson this evening made public his recent letter to Secretary Alger. In which ho charged that somo of the offlcsrs at Camp Algorwere unduly cruel to the men on a long march, .from the result of which two of the soldiers died. Ho wrote: " Dbab Sir: I desire to bring to your notice the fact that a march made by a brigade from Camp Algor on the 25th Inst., including the Third Now York and tho 150th Indiana regi ments, was, as is alleged, an outrage, and tho officer who dlreoted It is not fit torn cattle drlv or. The troops woro marohod fifteen miles in i hours and 31 minutes, through stifling heat and dust, with but two stops of six minutes each. More than half the men wero prostrated before the camp was reached, and some actu ally died on the march. Take Company E of the Third New York, for instance. Out of eighty-four men only twenty-six marchod back into camp: the rest wero in ambulances and stretched along the lino of march. A man In Company 1, 159th Indiana, was actually killed, and others aro likely to die. And yet all this was suffered by these men, not in tlio service of their country, but, as is claimed, that an ofllcer might win a bet of two dozen bottles of champagne. I nppeal to you to investigate this mutter, and if you discover the officer who it Is claimed seemml willimr and actually did kill men in or der to win a bet, to deal out to him euoh pun ishment as ho dciervos, for he Is guilty ot nothing less than murder.

Alarmist reports ot Russian preparations are coming from several quarters, with Intimation that Russia is deliberately forcing a crisis in tho far East. Diplomacy is extraordinarily active and the wires botween London and Bt. Petersburg have boon monopolized for tho past twonty-four hours by Government business. Tho Standard refers to tho dlplomatlo strug gle with Russia over the railroad question In China as threatening the gravest International complications. It says that tho controversy, unlike that with Franco concerning territory in Wost Africa docs not admit of concession. Russian diplomacy monaoos British Interests in the Y'angtso Valley, whore tho Government has emphatically intimated that theso inter ests must bo protected from such encroachment. Russia is soeking to secure control ot railroad construction for capitalists who would act uufrlondly to Great Britain. Bho Is also attempting to prevent China from ac cepting tho aid ot British capitalists else whore, notably in tho mattor ot the Uong Kong and Shanghai Bank loan.whloh China was negotiating for the construction of a railroad to Nowchwang. The position of tho latter arrangement is most precarious. Tho .Standard maintains that tho Newchwang mattor is rcgardod throughout tho East as the touchstono ot tho Holldlty ot British purpose. Burronde r on that point would Inevitably be considered as nn abdication of the British posi tion In the far East. It Insists that the Government most treat the mattor as vital and not recede from Its posi tion. It says that the country wishes and ex pects a firm attitude.

Biracuse, Aug. 5 At noon to-day tho 400 operators of tho Rapid Transit Eloctrla Street Railway system went on strike and complotoly tied up tho sixty-five mllos ot street railways of tho city. Only the East Bldo, tho Suburban and tho Lakeside roads, out-of-town linos not controlled by tho Rapid Transit Company, aro in oneratlnii. Tho Rtrikn Is n remarkablv nulet and orderly one, no incendiary talk having yot beon mado nor any attempts to destroy the company's property. Tho main griovanco Is tho requirement that the conductors and motor men each mako a deposit ot $25 with tho com pany as a guarautoo ot good faith. Tlio old employees of tho road kick at this. Due notlco was given of the strike at a meet ing hold from 2 to 4 o'clock this morn ing. A bulletin was prepared announcing that unless tho company acceded to the do minion oi me men me rona wouiu do lieu up ni noon, and promptly at Hint hour the crews ran tholrcars into the barns, remaining thoro to pre vent their being taken out. Two attempts to take out oars wore mndo by General Manager Moflltt. but In each caso 150 strikers, assisted by sympathetic crowds, ran tho cars forcibly back Into tho barns. A squad of police has been dotnlled to preserve order, and to-uight special deputy sheriffs will be sworn in.

CROKER MAKING AN EFFORT TO START AN EVKNIXO PAPER. 82J0,000 Said to Have Heen Ilnlted Already for the Venture The Uuarrel Hetween Cruker and Senator Hill Is Renewed A Room for Mayor Van Wyck for Governor. Baratooa, Aug. G. Rlehard Crokor was ex pected to arrive In this village to-night. Ho didn't como. and the Tammany colony ex pressod the keenest disappointment. It was ascertained that Mr. Crokor was dotalnod In New York city, completing, among othor things, tho arrangements for tho publication ot an afternoon nowspapor In New York city, whloh. It Is declared, is to bo dovoted to Tammany's interests In ovory lino of typo it prints. Already, it was said. $230,000 has boon raised for the venture, and this. It was added, is but a startor. Tho editor ot the now Tammany evening nowspapor In New York alty, it was nvorrod. Is to bo Alfred Honry Lewis, for morlyottho Washington Jbil and recently ot the Now York Journal. Mr. Crokor and Mr. Lewis aro fast friends, Mr. Crokor, It la said, lafasolnated with Mr. Lewis's style of political writing. Somo ot tho Tammany mon under tholr breaths said thoy didn't know what Ben jamin Wood and Col. William L. Brown of tho Dally Xtw$ would think ot the determination to start an ovoulng rival to tho Xewt, a nows paDor that In soasoti and out has beon the champion of Tammany Hall for many years. Bpoaklng of nowspapors, tho ontlro Tam many colony read with bated breath tho article In this morning's IVlegrafh, slgnod by Alfred Henry Lowls,attacktng ox-Senator David B.Hill. Most Tammany mon, all McLaughlin mon, most of Bonator Edward Murphy's friends, nnd cer tainly nearly ovory mother's son of a country Domocrat havo bollovod all along that, at tho propor tlmo, the quarrel botweon Mr. Hill and Mr. Croker would bo patched up. All Tammany mon and most laymen in tho political world have beon educated to accept all tho uttcrancos ot a political nature mado In tho Telegraph to be tho soal and sign manual of Richard Croker. It has been admitted by f rlonds ot tho two men that tho differences botweon Mr. Hill and Mr, Crokor had reached such an acute stago that It would bo worso than usoloss at this time to attempt to bring them to gether, but It had beon fondly hoped by many Democrats in tho country districts that at loast an armed neutrality might bo de clared during the proceedings of the Demo cratic Stuto Convention. Tammany mon Bald hero to-day, though, that It was evident to thorn, after reading tho artiole In tho Telegraph. that Mr. Croker has not tho slightest Intention ot making up with Mr. Hill, doiplto tho efforts ot that vetoran Democrat, Hugh McLaughlin ot tho borough ot Brooklyn. It has been prlntod In Thk Bun that Mr. MoLaughlln believes that Mr. Hill, Mr. Murphy and Mr. Croker should bo lockod In a room and not allowed to leavo it until thoy had como to an ngrocablo understanding ull around, and slnco that expression ot Mr. McLaughlin's opinion tho veteran Brooklyn Democratic chieftain's right-hand friends havo publicly stated that Mr. McLaughlin would havo neaco In tho Democratic nartr If ho had to bring it about with a slodgo hammor. Alt Tammany men and nil Democrats hero, howover, after reading what they Interpret to bo Mr. Crokor's official utterances, now declare that they do not bollovei that anything like penco or even soml-frlendly relations will over be resumed botween Mr. Crokor and Mr. Hill. Mr. Croker's friends said that It was not alone tho utterances of Mr. Hill, wherein ho spoko ot Mr. Croker as "a race-track statesman." or rathor In a speech used such an expression, meaning It to apply to Mr. Crokor, that had so greatly angered Mr. Crokor. They recallod tho charge made by Mr. Crokor's f rlonds just about a year ngo, to tho effect that Mr. Hill had advised John C. Sheohau, during Mr. Crokor's nbsenco In Europe, just prior to the Van Wyck nomination, to so strengthen himself as to deposo Mr. Croker from tho lead ership of Tammany Hall, nominate Charles W. Davton for Mnyor. and run tho Tammany mn chino in opposition to Mr. Croker aud his friends. The aliened conductor Mr. Hill at that time, Tammany men Insist. Is what Is rank ling In Mr. Crokor's hoart to-dny. Tammany men udd, howevor. that thu iiuarrel betweou Mr. Croker and Mr. Hill will mako no difference In tlio offoctlvenos ot tho campaign Tammany will put up for the candidates of tho Demo crats Btate ticket, but commontsof that char acter uro lightly considered by the country Democrats hero, who nro prone to bollevo, and they so express themselves, that thoy must ac cept in political life the Biblical axiom, "A houso divided against itself cannot stand." Mayor Van Wyck Is to arrive horo on Tues day, nnd. referring to Stato candidates. It must be said that Mayor Van Wyek will boeonf rented hero with the statements of country Democrat that ho must accept tho nomination for Gov ernor. Tammany men and friends ot Mayor Van Wyok havo frowned upon this sentiment all day. but nevertheless It can bo stntod with out resen-o that many up-Stuto Democrats be lieve that Mayor Van Wyck Is tlio man to head tho Demooratlo State ticket. Thoso Democrats In conversations to-dny pointed out thut Mayor Van Wyck was "regular" In 1800 and did yeo men service for Bryan and the Chicago plat form of 1800. Right hero It should bo said that whllo many Democrats bellevo that their loaders may bo iiowurful enough to stifle public expression in their Statu Convention concerning tho Chicago Platform of 181 XJ, tho rank and lllo of tho Dem ocratic party In tlio Htute will be greatly chagrined, if not aggressively angered, by such a performance To rocurto Mayor Van Wyck'sboom for Gov ernor. It may be added that the Democrats who discussed It and w ho uro prououticedly In favor of nominating him, wenton tosay that such a htop would in tho end uulto aiiyfactlonaldlfjrar-enei-H that may exist betwoen Tammany Hall und the Mclaughlin Democrats, and that the up-Htnto Democrats, while not particularly friendly to Tammany Hall in yours gouo by, would nevertheless be glad to accept Mr. Van Wyck on his reoord as a vote gutter and upon his gonoral reputation. It is known that Mnyor Vun Vi yck is vory much opposed to the talk that he should accopt the nomination for Governor. His friends recalled, though, that hu was ulso very much opposed to accepting tho immlndtlnn for Mnvnr rf MrAntjtr mw Ynrf a year ago and that ho desired a nomination for Supremo Court Justlco Instead. Yet tho talk for Vun Wyck goes on, and If things run right tho most powerful pressure. It was de clared, will bo brought to bear upon Mayor Van Wyek toohaugo his present disposition In the matter. While theso comments aro flying about con corning Mnyor Van Wyck, It should not bo for gotton that the friends ot John B. Btanohlleld of Elmlru belluvu that in the oiul they will bring him in us a winner for tho nomina tion. , Not long ago Mr. Htanchfleld had u satlsfautory talk at tho Hoffman House In Now York city with Senator Murphy anil other Democrats, and while Mr. Stanch Held has always been known as tho warm friend of ux-Huuator Hill, It was made public by thoso authorized to do so aftor t he Hoffman Housft seance, that If Mr Htanchfleld was nom inated und eleeted ho would not frown upon Tammany Hall or any legislation thut thu Wig wum might desire ut Albany. So with these things In mind, friends ot Senator Murphy and of ox-Senutor Hill said to-night : " After ull tlio fuss uud feathers look out for Stnuulillold." Nevertheless. It was suld that tlio Democrutlo candidate forGovernor will depend largely u pou the action of tho Republican Btate Convention, which, it has boon announced, is to assomblo in this village on Sept. 27. It was ascertained to day that tho United States, the Grand Union, and other hotels will remain ojien for the Demo- ('ratio Statu Convention, which Is sluted to meet ere nn Oct. 4. Thesu uro rather lute conven loiis in tho estimation of Influential nipinbersof jotli purtles. but then tho leaders of tho op losing forces havo doulded upon short, sharp uud decisive campaigns. It is known ihutfroni thu moment the Republican ticket is nomi nated, Chnlrmtin Oilcll of the IlepuhllcuiiHtate Committee will start his speaker ull over the Htute, Ha has his libts prepared ulready. Who Is to conduct the buttle for the Democrats has not yet boon determined. Ki-Uov. ltoHucll p. Flower Is at his cottage nt tho Unltuil Htutes Hotol with his family. Hu came horn a week ago und will remain uuothor week or so. Mr. Flower said he had eomn to Huratngn for many yours ut this season for a sojourn of two weeks or, more, and that thuru icuilil be no significance in his presence, "I am hero forfun nnd frolic.
