Havana. Sept. 12 It la enppoeetl that the joint commission hu don nothing forthe than to exchange credential, which took place at the conference yesterday. To-day Lieut. -Col. Clout, Deputy Jndfe Advocate General and Secretary ol tha commission, presented Id writing to the Spanish Commissioner an outline of what the United Rtatee Commissioner propose to do. and what they expect of the Rpanleh Government. Thla will be replied to, ahortly by the Spanish Commissioners, and JBk earnest work will than begin. jm The Spanish Commissioners will meet In the morning for tha purpose of discussing tha note tWJk of tho American Commlaalonore. Just when 9Jr another session of the joint commission will be held haa not yet been determined. The American Commissioner are preparing to leasa a hotel tu the eastern part of the olty. but they will doubtless remain on board the Reso lute for ten daya. It Is said that the commission expect to re main here during the entire winter, or during the time the Spanish troops are evacuating the island. It is now generally believed that I this evacuation cannot be accomplished in leas than aixty days, but it will be the commission's object to facilitate the evacuation in even way possible. This morning Admiral Sampson, on the transport Resolute, sent a long communi cation to Maraui Montoro. a member of the Spanish commission to arrange for the evacuation of the island. The contents of the communication are. of course, unknown. Marquis Montoro Is the only civilian member of the commission. Admiral Bampson's com munication wns brought ashore by Col. Clous and Capt. Hart. It is announced In despatches from Madrid that instructions to the Spanish Commission ers are coming by mail from Spain. j Gen. Blanco and all the Spanish authorities were much pleased by the courtesy shown by Admiral Sampson yesterday, when he raised the Spaniah flag on the mainmast of the Reeo- lute and fired a salute in honor of the birth day of the Princess of the Asturias. King Al fonso's eldest sister. This action on the part of Admiral Sampson has dissipated all the misunderstanding occa sioned by the failure of the Resolute to salute when she arrived here with the American Commissioners. The city presents Its usual appearance. There are a number of foreign warships in the arbor. The utmost indignation has been excited among the Spanish military and naval officers hare by the terrible charges made in the Cortes at Madrid against the Spanish.Generals by Count Almenas. Captain-General Blanco Thus sent a despatch to Madrid protesting energetically against the Count's wanton In sults. Gen. .Blanoo. who, after the .beginning of the war. merely followed his Government's Instructions, was ready on his side to con tinue the war to the bitter end. and he re- ' sent the attacks made In the Cortes against All the army and navy of Spain without any ex ception whatever. A meeting of naval officers was held here A last night to protest against the utterances of Count Almenas. Resolutions were adopted to the effect that the Spanish Navy had fulfilled It duty during the war; that disaster came on account of the superiority of the American vessels and artillery and that, therefore. Count Almenas's remarks were unjuatSand cruel. The news that was received this morning r. J , that Gen. Linares, formerly the Spanish com mander at Santiago de Cuba, had sent seconds to Count AJmenas to arrange a duel, caused a sensation. Gen. Linares's action is warmly supported here. Ip Comment has been oaused by the arrival in the harbor of Sefior Guerra, the Treasurer of a the Cuban Junta, and Brig.-Gen. Freyre of the Cuban Army. The police have not yet per mitted Guerra to land. The latter is the bear M er of the proclamation recently Issued by the I W. Cuban Government calling for a general 1, J u eleotlon of representatives to form a new pro fl visional Government. This proclamation m I was written by Gonzales Lanu-ia, a member of E I the New York Junta, and Vice-President Men- des Capote.The plan was framed in New York IV-7 I br 8efior Capote when on his last trip there, and he returned to Cuba, accompanied by lfffl Sefior Lanuza to carry It out. r"jf! The insurgents outside Havana are re- f' T oeivlng provisions from the Cubans In the M rsity. Gen. Blanoo is praised by the Cubans for ft ML having allowed Civil Governor Castro to send bs gYi' provisions to the Insurgents, as well as to the WmaJl famine-stricken paciflcos. In giving his or- B ders for the distribution of the food. Gen. Blanco said that noldlstlnotlon was to be made fflB between insurgents and puclflcos when they HI were in need. I The radloal Autonomists have adopted reso lutions advocating the independence of Cuba as against annexation by the United Htates. H The resolutions are signed oy such prominent Autonomists as Glberga a..d Vlondi. A group of men of all classes gathered yes- terduy in front of the Buona Vista Railroad B Mi station and began shouting "Viva Cuba Libre." Nobody heeded them until their number in jlnKt creased and they became too noisy, when they llSv were s.-rested for disorderly conduct. They Wfrl showed great surprise nt their arrest, bollev T y 'eg tnut w',n ",0 arrival of the American i I Commissioners they could shout freely. J 1 The Havana press published to-day for the v 1 I Orst time the official text of the peace protocol. I . Major Bererson of the British Engineers ar rived here to-day from Santiago, whither he went to watch the military operations. MM I COL. MORAN DEPOSED. HA Tamed Down by the Irish Volunteers n a TfM Result of the Irish Fair. Ml Col. James Morun has been deposed as com jflFj mander of the First Regiment, Irish Volun teers, and the organization is threatened with V disruption. The trouble dates buck to the Irish Fair, which was held a year ago last win Hn ter for the purpose of raising funds to erect an )1 Irish hall in this city. Col. Moran was the ac MJlK tlve manager. The fair, apparently, was ulgreat BflK Buocess. but at its close the discovery was I Ml made that tho net receipts were not very large ist'l after all. and the grumbling began at once. I On Thursday a meeting of the officers of (he LTV I First Regiment was held and a resolution was an sV adopted depriving Col. Moran of his command. Qpl. Moran, however, still claims to be the WB Colonel of the regiment. He blames all the BgjfJBs trouble on the Clan-na-Oael, unil says that gUsijl that organization wants, to get control of the regiment..

MAT MSn flT A COVRT.MART1AL. pata Asked ttsto Investigate th stllllagof Frlsonert on Ihe Harvard. vTaskimotos. Hept. 12. At the request of the Spanish Government, made through the French Embassy, the War Department ha begun an investigation of the tragedy aboard the United State auxiliary cruiser Harvard by which a number of the captive sailors from Cervero's ships lost their live. Tho prison ers were nnder guard of volunteers on the Har vard on the night of July 4 off Santiago when the affair occurred. Tho Ninth Massachusetts and part of theTThlrty-fourth Michigan regi ments had just arrived off Santiago on the Harvard. Some of tho volunteers were de tailed to watch the Spaniards, and In the le llef that the prisoners had mutinied tho guards fired Into the ranks of the captives. Several were killed and others wore wounded. The Investigation, which Is now In progress. may result In a court-martial. Lleut.-Col. E. H. Dudlor. Assistant Judge Advocate General of Volunteers, is now nt Portsmouth, N. II . where he has token testimony from United States marines and Spanish prisoners who witnessed the affair. According to the under standing in official circles here the Spanish Government wants to make It appear that the prisoners were shot without cause. None of the army nnd navy officers asked about the affair to-dav had over hoard of any claim for Indemnity by one nation against a nation with which it had boon at war for the Ill-treatment of prisoners. Neither the Navy Department nor the War Department has ever been able to learn who was responsible for tho killing of the Span lards. At the time tho affair noppened. the Navy Department was requested by Admiral Cervera to lnvoatigate tho tragedy so that he could make a report to his Government on his return to Spain. This request. It was said to day, was referred to the War Department, but the case remained unsettled until tho French Embassy renewed tho request In behalf of the Madrid authorities. Then the Navy Deport ment asked the War Department whether It would prefer to have a joint Inquiry or to have on lnvetlgatlon.by tho War Departmen' alono. Tho military authorities preferred tho latter course, and, after securing from the naval branch documents relating to the killing, sent Lieut. -Col. Dudley to Portsmouth. Tolo- frams have also been sent to the Governors of assachusetts nnd Michigan, asking them to ascertain what troops wore detalleato guard the Spaniards on the Harvard when the snoot ing occurred. Cant. Cotton of the Harvard, in his report, said that Michigan men were on duty at the time, but it has been assorted that tho guards wore from tho Massachusetts regi ment. Capt. Cotton's report, now in tho possession of the War Department, says that the affair mktit have been avoided, but he does not btnme the volunteers who did tho shooting. According to his version some of the Span iards hod been sleeping on a deckhouse of tho Harvard, to which thev had been forbidden. These men started to climb on the deckhouse and wore warned off by the sentinel. Not understanding, or pretending not to understand, the warning, they continued to come forward. The sentinel then ran toward them with his bayonet advanced. He was at tacked, and his oomrades, responding to his cries, fired into the prisoners, killing and wounding a number of thorn. z. Another report says that the sentinels had been strictly enjoined not to allow any of the prisoners to climb on tho deckhouse, because there was a quantity of ammunition there. In carrying out his orders n sentinel was as saulted and it was necessary to Ore into the Spaniards, who wore swarming over the deck house and sljowed everv disposition to mu tiny. The Spanish defence is that the prison ers thought the ship was on tire and they rushed over the deckhouse to escape the flames. There Is some feeling over the matter in o". cinl circles, the Navy Department appearing to believe that the War Department was remiss in not making an investigation when request ed the first time and thus creating an impres sion in .Spain that the United States could not afford to have the true story told. OVR REPLY TO SPATES KOTE. It Is Said TTe Promise to Send an Agent to Admonish Agulnaldo. .Vprn'at CabU Dtipalrh to Tiik Bus. Madmti, Sept. 12. Tho Government has re ceived from M.

Sptciml CM4 tpalr to Tar. Ron. Santtaoo rB Cuba, Sept. 12. I.lent.-Ool. Rowan and Capt. Hnrker of the Second Artil lery and Cot. Garcia, chief of staff to his father, Callxto Garcia, arrived here to-day from (Hbar. They rode across the Island, taking three days for tho trip. Lient.-Col. Rowan and Capt. Hnrker landed at Glbara from tho Gussle threo week ago. They brought word to Gen. Lawton of the operation of tho Cuban Government there. Gen. Garcia occupied Glbara when he left Santiago after writing a letter to Gen. Shaftor complaining that the Americans had not treated the Cubans properly. Tho Span lards abandoned the town on his ap proach. Gen. Garcia assumed charge of affairs, put Cubans In all the municipal offloos. levied taxes and collected duties from ships entering the harbor. He repulsed attempts of a Spanish force from Holguln to retake the town on Aug. 16 and 17. Col. Garcia told the correspondent of Tbb Sun that everything at Glbara was run ning smoothlv. His father had demand ed contributions to the amount of S50, 000 when he entered the town, but on learning a few days later that the peace proto col had been signed, he placed the money in a bank and did not use It. The money Is still In the bank, but Is to be returned to the men who contributed It. There Is great scarcity of pro visions in the town and much sickness among the poor. Lleut.-Col. Rowan, Capt. Hnrker and Col. Garcia nil urged Gen. Lawton to send fresh moat to tho town, it being badly needed to sup ply the sick with broth. Gen. Lawton will take stops to send relief to Glbara immediately. Col. Garcia told Gen. Lawton that since his father had left the Cuban Army the General had been exerting his personal influence among the Cubans to lead them to turn their arms over to the Americans, return to their homos and go to work. Gen. Garcia has told the Cubans, his son says, that they have nothing to gain by retaining their arms and resisting the efforts of the Americans to restore order and establish a stable government. Gen. Garcia has sent tho officers of his staff home to spread his views with regard to the necessity ot immediately disbanding the army. Gen. Lawton has received word from Capt. Hendosa of his staff and the Cuban General. Dometrlo Castillo. who left Santiago a week ago to attend a conference of prominent Cubans In Camaguey. that the meeting would take place in Santa Crux. Instead of Camaguey, on Sept. 15. Vice-President Capote and two or three other prominent officers of tho Cuban Government will attend the meeting at Santa Cruz. Both Capt. Mendoxa and Gen. Castillo write favor ably of their mission, which Is to urge upon tho Cuban leaders the Importance ot immediately disbanding the army and sending the men to gather tho crops, and to point out to them tho futility of the Cubans remaining under arms. Tho most partisan Cuban leaders. Gen. Castillo says In his letter to Gen. Lawton. have given up the Idea of attempting to resist the Americans. The Cubans about Santiago expect an Im portant communication from the Government at Camaguey to-morrow. The balloting for delegates to the Cuban Congress to assemble at Camaguey early In October began to-day at El Cobre. Cuovitas. Bonlato. Glbara. .Tlguani and other places in the province of Santiago held by the Cubans. The Cubans in Santiago city are not allowed to vote because the place is held by the Ameri cans exclusively and the Cubans have no share In the government. A Ward line steamer arrived here from Cien fuegos to-day with a cargo of much-needed fresh beef and other supplies. The officers of the steamship say that the suffering in Cien fuegos from starvation Is terrible. The war has reduced the best families to invert y, and begging isgoneral. The Cubans outside the city are allowed to come In by the Spaniards occu pying the town to sell anything they get in the country- The Cubans have been reduced by starvation and disease to mere skeletons. Spaniards and Cubans alike are delighted the war is over. The Cubans are anxiously await ing the order from Camaguey to disband their forces. The men want to go to their homos to try to gather enough together to carry them and their families through the winter months. A member of the First Battalion of the Fifth regulars died from yellow fever to-day. The case was not pronounced yellow fever until the patient was breathing his last. The announce ment caused considerable stir because It was not believed that there was any yellow fever in this battalion. It is believed that Gen. Lawton will isolate the battalion to-morrow. The dead soldlor was buried without waiting for the Chaplain. The funeral service was read to night by the light of a lantern by the Adjutant of the regiment. Forty per cent, of the Fifth Regulars re ported sick to-day. A great deal of sickness is also reported in Col. Crane's Ninth Immunes. allot whom are negroes exoept tho captains and field officers. This regiment has been as signed to camp with Gen. Ewer's brigade on tho San Luis plateau, but the men are still in tho San Juan Valley, where they were sent on their arrival here to guard tho camp of the Spanish prisoners. Their present enmp is very un hoalthfiil. nnd they will be hurried to San Luis as soon as possible. MAYFLOWER'S PRIZE COSDEMSED.

Tho rnrelgn Admirals Ileelde That They Shall Be Withdrawn from Crete. feciol Cirh'r Dai leV (o Tsr. So. Cauba. Crete. Sept. 12. The foreign Admirals have resolved. In consequence of tho disturb ances In Candla, that the Ottoman troops must withdraw from the Island ol Crete at once. Const antixopmc Sept 12. Tho Porte has abandoned its intention of addressing a circu lar upon the recent events in Candla to the repreeentntivesof the Governments at London. Paris. St. Petersburg and Rome. Cavdia. Crete. Sept. 12. The Italian Vlco Consul describes the recent massacre of Christians by tho Mussulmans as being accom panied by ghastly scenes. The mob burst into tho British Consulate. where British Vice-Consul Calochcrlno nnd many Christians had taken refuse Onco Insldo tho building, tho mob compelled the Vice-Consul to deliver up the money in his possession, which nmounted to nbout 2,000 napoleons, and then silt his throat and sot fire to the promises. Tho Turkish guard thnt had been posted to protect the consulate fired on the Christians. The looting, however, was not confined to the house of Christians. Much Turkish property was either plundered or destroyed. The foreign Admirals havo sent nn Identical telegram to their resnectlvo Governments de claring that the situation is very grave. Tho Christians are assembling to march on Candla, and a conflict is imminent. The Mo hammedans at Retlmo and Canea have as sumed a threatening attitude. Each Admiral has asked foranother battalion ot troops. Rear Admiral Noel, the British commander, has taken' charge. He landed this afternoon with M. Billot 1 1, the British Con sul, and Inspected the town. The aspect of the town "is horrible. Every where there wore ruins, some ot which were still smouldering. A tew Moslems watched the progress of the Admiral In apparent awe. Not a voice was raised. The plucky telegraph staff la guarded by Ot toman troops. The International troops are in their own camp, which is strongly barricoded and has guns mounted, but it Is Incapable of making a defence against a strong attack with out support from the warships. The Porte has ordered the formation ot a commission of beys to estimate the damage. Many of these suffered heavy losses. They admit that tho conduct of the Bashi Barouks and Turkish troops was indefensible. The mob. however, were desperate, owing to its disappointment at the delay of the settle ment of the Cretan question, and the priva tions, losses and confinement lu the towns. At the time tho recent war between Turkey and Greece began. Crete had a Christian Gov ernor, but he was utterly powerless, because never would tho Sultan consent to place tho military commander under his orders; conse quently he was able to do nothing more than offer unheeded advice. The Christians have a decided numerical preponderance In Crete, and It was only the presence of tho Sultan's troops that, made it possible to carry out a policy of oppression against the Christians.

Russia, and got work making women's wrappers in a factory in Pitt street. She hod no relatives in this country, with the exception of a cousin named Samuel Mendelsohn, who lives at ISO Clinton street. Bertha had been keeping company for sev eral years with a young man whose name could not be ascertained. For tho past two or three weeks the tenants noticed tiiat sho was de spondent. She ell ed on her cousin on Satur day last and asked him what wus the best way to commit suicide. Mcndels din, thinking she wns joking, said tho rope was as good us any way lie knew. "I don't think so; gus is easier. 1 have been told." said Bertha, nnd she left tho house. Miss Steinfeldt nnd her brother left the flat to go to work about il o'clock yesterday morn ing.

Tho following slate ment concerning the events lending up to the destruction of tho Spanish licet off South go July 3. und which is along the lines upon which Admiral Ccrvorn will lav his caso before tho ofllclnls nt Madrid, wns tntido public to-day from Spanish sources: "Tho .full truth concerning what led to the destruction of the magnificent Cape Verde fleet has ncvorvot been told, nnd tho time has come when ertnlii tacts which havo boon heretofore withhold should l-o mnilo pub lic. It Is truo that Admiral Cervera nnd his officers may bo conrt-mnrtinled upon reaching Spain, and mxn conviction It Is alo true that they could bo hot If tho authori ties. 'those composing the court-martial or tho Government, saw lit to Impose such a penalty. However, such n catastrophe Is not looked for: It will not occur: and when nil tho facts are plainly sot foith and the blame iilnccd where 11 belongs. It will be clearly shown that Admiral Cervera acted like tho wise and sagacious Ad miral that ho Is nnd both ho and his officers and crow will bo completely exonerated. "Notwithstanding this, their situation at present or upon their approaching Spain Is crit ical, and it may bo safely said that the high standing of Admiral Cervera's family all bolng of royal blood will not save him from court-martial. Public opinion has been Inflamed against him in Spain through gross misrepresentation, through falsehood and conspiracy of those who seek to shift the blame for tho loss of tho Spanish ships from their own shoulders to tho shoulders of Admiral Cervera. Their erring deeds, un faithfulness and trenohory wore entirely re sponsible for tho disaster they would place upon those who nre Innocent, and who. if al lowed to exercise their own wisdom and dis cretion, would havo saved for Spain the pride of her navy. "It Is untrue that Admiral Cervera. after leaving the Cniio Vcrdo Islands nnd reaching western waters, was sooking to avoid tho American fleet and flying hero nnd there to avoid a light. Naturally, his plans wore dif ferent from those luid out for him to fol low by the American Board of Strategy, for he was endeavoring to separate the American fleets and engage them separately; he wanted to moot and light them singly, but his mis fortune would not permit him to do that. hen lie was nearly without coal and being in need of some slight repairs to his ships he naturally put Into Santiago, expecting thereto find supplies, to mukn what few repairs were needed, get provisions and proceed further, but tbore he was greatly disappointed. " Through the interference of (ion. Blanco ho was prevented from carrying out his plans, and tho whole world knows the result. Gen. Blanco Immediately communicated to Spain ami asked the Minister of Marine to place Admiral Cer vera and his fleet under his (Blanco's) orders, making various representations and explain ing tho necessity of such action from his stand point, and his request wus finally granted. " It wns simply a deep diabolical trick on the part of Gen. Blanco. Ho foresaw disaster somewhere, and in case it should come ho wanted to have someone high in authority upon whom ho con Id shove a portion if not all of the blame for any loss which mlghr accrue to Spain and for which he was bold responsible. Gen. Blanco then ordored Cervera to remain In San tiago and assist in the defence ot the shore batteries. Admiral Cerveiti protested strongly against this and appealed to Spain, but it Is doubt l ii I If his appeal overreached the Govern ment. Ho asked to be allowed to coal up and then lenvo Santiago, where he might be free to moot tho American fleet, rather than to bo bottled up In a blockaded harbor. He contend ed that he could not possibly be useful to Spain by remaining in Bant lego harbor with the cer tainty of American thins coming to keep him there, whereas, outside and free, his strong fleet could bo of great value to the Spanish cause. "The answer of Gen. Blanco was that Ad miral Cervera was now subject to his orders, and that he. and not Admiral Cervera. wus in command of affairs In Cuba, and that tho Ad miral must obey his command. Cervera could then do nothing. "After the Mcrrimnc affair, which made tho name of Lieut, llobson Immortal and made Admiral Cervera. by his kindly treatment of the prisoner, well regarded by Americans when he entile to lie a prisoner bimsetr. Cervera was fully aware that Ii" could t ill got out of Sunt logo harbor if ho had permission to do so. Ills immediate investigation showed that the chan nel was not entirely closed and that his ships could pass out. Finally, when fully aware that tho strong American licet wore waiting for him outside of the harbor, as ho was completely in formed of the movements of the Americans at all times, he concluded that he would do his best to defend the city, as it would at that time bo certain destruction to attempt to run out of the harbor. The time to escape had already passed, nnd he bocame resigned to do his best. " Then one night nn order camo to him from Gen. Blanco to bo ready to sail out of the har bor within twenty-four hours and fixing 1 o'clock in the morning for the tlmo of depar ture, when, it was nrguod by Gon. Blanco, tho Americans would bo taken by surprise and probably off their guard and tho escape could bo made. Admiral Cervera protested strongly against this, maintaining that the American commanders were too shrewd not to double nud treble their guard at night, and pointed out to (leu. lllnueo that 1 o'clock i in tho morn ing would be a very bad time to start, if in deed lie should Insist upon tho order to get out of the harbor. " Admiral Cervera did not know at that time of tho villainy of Blanco In teie- &raphlng to Madrid asking that Cervera a removed from command of the fleet and Commodore Villamil be placed In command. Then Inter, whon tho fleet was destroyed. Blanco sent another telegram stat ing that it was tbo fault of the Minister of Marine in not hooding his advice and granting his request to remove Cervera. "Blanco was fully aware that to leave San tiago meant Iho destruction of the fleet, and ho waited to again shift tho blame. and so made the request for the change ot commanders, which he knew would not and could not be made, but ho nevertheless had an excuse and some one to blame for not accepting his counsel. Gen. Blanco knew that tho action which ho ordered must moan the destruction of the fleet, nnd ho actually hoped and believed thut It would moan the deuth of Admiral Cervera. so that he could not make answer to tho charges which Blanco pro jHised to make against him. "Tho same vile treachery of Gen. Blanco is also shown in his conduct toward Gen. Toral. who ho first ordered to surrender the city when it became actually necessary to do so and the siege could no longer bo endured, und then publicly accused of cowardice whon ho and his command bud laid down their arms In honor able surrender. "Every ono ot Admiral Cervera's craw, of course, knew thnt in attempting to escape from Snntlugo harbor at the time they did mount not only tho loss of their ves sels, but probablv death to thorn. They knew thut the course they were entering upon by order of Gon. Blanco was ono of suicide, and all expected to llnd graves at tho bottom of the sea. But the fleet would not have attempted the escape had It not been for the command of Blanco, and tho only concession which Ad miral Cervera could obtain from the Captain General was a change in the time of departure. "It Is true that Admiral Cervera and some Of his officers and crew attempted to es cape by swimming to the shore, but there they found another obstacle and were fired upon by a force of men whom it was after wurd learned wore Cubans under command of Col. Oaudelnrls Cobrocos. The Spaniurds have no cause for complaint at tile treatment received at their hands, for when the rank of their prisoners was usoertaincd 'Hoy were taken to the Cuban rump nud afterward sur rendered to tho American comninnders and distributed among the American ships. " The remainder is all history, but the world at large has never known the real inside fuels or the cause which led to the destruc tion of the pride of tliu Spanish navy, and the blame has never Mian proiwrly attached. History knows that t he Spanish Cupe Verde fleet was destroyed by superior American force. but It docs not know of the wilful treachery. incompetency, und dastardly rlllulny of those who were responsible fir It. and Admiral Cer vera will in the end bo vindicated." 1'oltce Sergeant Kelly linml.

TbS next desl in the Brico proiertics will be the' absorption of tho fiiieiiiuatl Northern by the Luke Erie and Wesfern. Thit will luxe pluee, it Is thought, in tho very near future. Sonntor Brico and some of the other Luke Erie ami Western stockholders liave been fuvoi-uble to tho plan for sometime, but them hu been opposition to the consolidation, growing, it is said, out of the fuel that the old Cineluiiiitl, Jackson ami Muckinuw road wus never aide to pav its in terest, .lot to sie.ik of dividends The advo cates of the consolidation idea said that the Ohio division of tho Cincinnati. Juokjion and Mackinaw, which is now the Clnelonatl North ern, would lie u puling investment. It wok urgued ilia, the Ohio division wus liiiiiovnr Islied by (lie Michigan division of the obi road. Since the Ohl division bus boon out once from the Michigan division this argument bus iiroved to Is' sound. As u biuueli of the Lake Crle nnd Western, the Cincinnati Northern would prove u fur more vulualile proi-crty. It would give the Luke Erie und Western un en trance into Cincinnati.
