The tratiiort Derlln, Cant. Wilson, arrived
vesterday fi-om Santiago with 137 passengers,
among whom were a large number of dis
charged and convalescent soldiers. sK women
nurses. Capt. Antonio Oarcia. son of Oen. C
Ilxto Oarcia: Major Melendez of the Cuban
Army, and SeflorCatulla, a Cuban diplomat on
a mission to the United States. Cupt. Oarcia Is
visiting his mother nod sKter'. who llvo at 1U5
Lenox avenue. He kald to a SfN reporter that
the health of the soldier- and also the Cubans
around Santiago had Improved much within the
pnst few weeks. There is sickness lu some of
the outlying ulstricts of the province, but this
will be overcome wheu tho Insurgents are per
mitted to re-establish their homes
"Our urmy Is meeting with many hardships."
said he. "because tho war has so devastated the
country that It wilt take not only time but
money as well for the peoplo to get their homes
and plantations In working order. The Cuban
people now see that America Is doing all she
can to bring iieace and prosperity to the Isl
and. Tho Cuban vieuernis are irving to nnii
means of helping the men who served in the
army, and, nlove all, to send Cue men who
served faithfully to their homes with enough
to begin life over. When the war broke out a
young patriot had to leave mother, wife, and
children In man v Instances to get along as best
they could or starve Now that the war Is
over, we cannot let these men go back to their
tamlllos without something to make a fresh
beginning. Capitalists 111 not invest their
money In any enterprise ns long as the Cubans
are armed Ther are all holding back to see
what tho Unal outcome will be."
Cant. Garcia said the better class of Cubans
look upon this country with profound respect
ana feel that the United States will do the
right thing by them. They have no fear that
this country will annex Cuba. Gen. Wood, as
Military Governor of Santiago, has the respect
of the natives and Is rapidly getting the affairs
of the city into smooth working order.
Capt. Garcia said that one object of the com
mission's visit to this country would be to try
and get tho authorities at Washington to
come to the asslbtanee of the Cubans who are
just now desperately lu need of food and
monoy. Business all over the eastern part of
the Island is almost at a standstill, but the
Deo pi o there expect to see prosperity gradually
return.
One of the first things Cant. Garcia said to
Tnc Sux reiorter was that he was overjoyed
to learn of Col. Roosevelt's election.
"Col. Rooseveit." he said, "left a name be
hind him in Cuoa which will not soon fade
He Is not only a tighter, but he Is gentleman,
and ht conduct in the Held had a salutary ef
fect on the Cuban army."
Capt. Garcia thinks the United States ought
to keep the Philippines. He has spent two
rears In the Philippines and says It would be a
blessing If this country would hold the group.
"The Islands are rich." he said, "and from
what I saw I am sure this Government would
not Imve as much dlfllculty as some people
Imagine In getting the natives accustomed to
your methods of government."

Produce Kxcliuugn Tries Unit for Throwing
n ling of Oats nt Turiibiill,
The authorities of the Produce Kx?hange
have at last sat down hard upon skylarking on
the floor and the throwing of dough balls and
bags of grain. When, on Wednesday, James
il. Halt threw, a bag of oats at frank M. Turn
bull. Turnbull made n formal complalut
agalust Mr. Halt to the Floor Committee.
Three hundred of tho members of the Ex
change crowded the room of the Board of Man
agers vetterdav ut the hearing.
The genernl belief that tho complaint was a
joke, entertained by Mr. Halt and his friends,
evaporated when thu Superintendent of the
FjLChange. who Is a notary, was summoned
and told to liuttthe complainant and defendant
uuuer oath. Kaeli .neinber was told to select
an attorney to lepresent htm and a formal
trial was held. Mr Halt selected as his at
torney William It. Tllson rnd Mr. Turnbull
selected W. H. Smith, manager of the Long
Dock Mill nnd Klevutor Company of Jersey
City .
The result wus that a warning was admin
istered to Mr. Ilult In a letter from J. W.
Ahles. Chairman of the Floor Committee, of
which this is an extract:
"Wo do not wish tit this time to single rou
out as ono of many offenders, hut, if com
plaint Is brought agnlust you again by either
the door superintendent or any member for
violation of the rules, complaint will be
brought beforu the Hoard of Muagors vrllh a

statement a to the respective number of
lodgers In their houses for the thirty days pre
ceding an election. On the night of Oct. ti.
thirty days preceding tho election just passed,
necordino to the sworn statement. ot tho 134
lodging-house keener in the whole city, verl-
I lied by McCullagh s deputies, there wcrp domi
ciled In lheo houses 1.4,104 men. Of this num
ber but 4.034 registered, tho other 0,070 being
frightened awav by McCullagh.
UN method of procedure was this: The num
ber of lodgers on Oet.w being determined, ho
exnmlncd the reglsterof all tho housefor Oct.
7. and, n he mipectod, found an enormous
discrepancy Then he knew that from nil tho
surrounding towns men had leen brought In
by Tammany Hall and stowed away for this
one night with b view to making them eligible
for reglMrntlon.nnd the franchise. He there
fore tooK the names of every man who was In
any of the house on the 8th nnd not on the
7th. Thcke he gavo to his deputies, who went
to tho p!accof registry nnd began challenging.
The colonizers saw that tho game was
up. Tho tip went the round. Mon re
treated from the registration places In hunches.
It had also leaked out among tliom
that deputies had been sleeping In theso
houses, and this cave them nn additional
scare. Only tho boldest dared register, and so
It happened that In some of the houses, where
over 100 men were domiciled on Oct. W. not a
single mnn dared register. Ot those who did it
I estimated that at least 25 percent, failed to
vote. This estimate is based on record of a
number of tho houses which were kept by
deputies at tho polls.
This Is the plot that McCullagh referred to
when he sent a letter to the l"ollee Hoard on
Oct -Ti notifying them that certain houses had
been colonized for purposos of registration,
and calling upon them for aid. HI activity I
it'sponsibl" for the report of the police, which
w.i to the effect that the men registered in
these houses wore all "O K "
Statistics with reference to the Haines law
hotels havo not been fullv compiled yet. but

Seventeen men registered from there, and only
flvo voted Tho Sullivan were Interested in
this place, and they know why these other
twelve did not vote There were warrants for
them nil. The percentage may not have been
so high in other Haines law hotel, but the
majority of the registration from them was
iltecnl. and the vote foil off accordingly
That Tammany paid ns much attention to
Raines law hotels a to lodging house Is
shown bv one on South street where fifty-seven
men were domiciled on the night of Oct. 8 Tho
average number the week previous was but
eight and on Oct. Othenumberwasbuttcu.
All of these men were frightened by McCul
lagh' activity, and that's why the borough of
Manhattan did not do a well for Tammany us
Mr. Croker anticipated Altogether. It I prob
nble that enough Illegal votes to have defeated
Roosevelt wore kept out of the ballot boxes.

Since the election expert accountants have
been employed and havo whittled down Mr.

encouragement In this that the Mavor has now
taken the case Into the courts nnd will have
tho ballots gone over again in hope of secur

claims a majority of the votes cast by the sol

Is no doubt ot his election and Republican
leaders declare that the recounting of the
votes will increase Hodge's plurullty and per

Democratic plurality. This ward Is in a flec

clination on the iattof tho press to ascribe n
sinister purpose td lord Salisbury's remarks
In regard to Ecypt:
The .Vnffn says that England's armaments
continue In order that slio may show tho world
that that Island Is impregnable. Her prepara
tions alo indlcnto that she Intends to take an
octli opart in the hunt for which the United
States hr.s just sounded tho cry. She wants ri
lion's share ot the Spanish possessions, and
perhaps tho whole of tho Portuguese.
The Wil Journal, commenting upon Lord
Salisbury's speech, says: "He is a liner player
than Chamberlain would Ijnve Jeen and per
haps more dangerous. Ho renounces the Idea 1
of using rashoda a a pretext for Immediate
war. The Fashoda coup failed. Still, it would
bo unpardonnblo for n to sleep after this

which wo are engaged against unscrupulous
