John JaylloblnsonofSlO West Fifty-sixth street, a Young Men'n Christian Association worker at Camp W ikoff. said that many of tho soldiers shammed sickness merely to get blackberry brandy and delicacies.

An Agreement Benched Between the Board on Construction and the Contractors. Wisni.soioK. Nov, 23. Au arrangement was effected to-day between the Naval Board on Construction, representing tho Navy Depart ment, and ropreuontath cs ot the Newport News Bhlpbulldlng nnd Dry Dock Company of Vir ginia, the Bath Iron Works of Bath. Me., the Crescent Shipbuilding Company of Elizabeth port. N. J and tho Union Iron Works of San Franclco. by which tho construction of foiir coout-dctence monitors is assured wlthont tho necessity ot appealing to Congress for an in creased appropriation. Briefly, theso four firms, which obtalnod contracts for building the monitors orlglually designed undor the ap propriation, will be called on to sign new con tracts for tho construction ot vessels ot 3,100 tons displacement, 12 knots Bpeed, 400 tons coal capacity, and one turret, containing two 12-inch rifles. In general terms that was the type of vessol on which all parties comiomed agreed to-day. The cost will not be muoh In excess of the prices lu tho original contracts. Itwos evident when tho contractors nnd the Board on Construction met to-day that the members ot the board would not hold out for the construction of double-turret monitors within the limit of the appropriation. Threo members ot tho board agreed with tho con tractors in that regard, and the remaining member wtis outvoted. Several propositions, nil centring on a single-turret monitor, were submitted and considered, and then there was a general agreement that the type ultlmatoly accepted presented features most satisfactory to. the Government and the builders. The. principal change from tho original design 7s a lengthening of each vessel twenty-seven feet to allow for 400 Instead of only 200 tons of ooal. This will cause an Increase ot 300 tons In dis placement, making a total displacement ot from 2.800 to U.100 tons. The additional length will aluo permit of more comfortable quarters for the oftlccra and men. a matter of great Im portances on a monitor, wherothe living room Is restricted at the most. Before the new design can be adopted It must be approved by the Sec retory of tho Navy. Secretary Long Is In Mas sachusetts, but will be back In Washington on Monday. oar. xrcEtt's i'leadixo.i trox. Overcame Secretary Alger's Derision About Virginia Tioops in a Telephone Tnllu IIicruokp, Va., Nov. 23. Gov. Tyler demon strated to-day his ability to cope with the War Department. He made an eloquent appeal over the lonc-dlstance telephone to Secretary Alger In Washington not to allow Virginia, the mother ot States and Presidents, to be repre sented in Havana by a regiment with ranks dwindled down to the minimum number, and the heart of the Secretary was melted promptly Into granting tho request Since Gen. Lee's telegram from Savannah to Gov. Tyler saying that be had received orders from Bocretary Alger that men mustered out from the Second nnd Third Virginia regiments could not be re cruited Into the Fourth to All the many acan clcs. Gov. Tyler has been In a peck of trouble. The men who are still In the Second, but are about to bo mustered out, expressed their un willingness to, be transferred into the Fourth according to Hecrotary Alger's plnn. and Col. Taylor ot the Fourth, as well as the recruiting ofltcer recently sent hero, was much disap pointed over the now ordor. Gov, Tyler called up Secretary Alger to-day and explained that Gen. Lee. Col. Taylor, the Governor hlmsclt and the whole ot Virginia would feel deeply humiliated to hao Virginia represented by such a straggling, scattered regiment In Cuba. Ho begged that tho Heore tary would revoke his order. " GovoniorJ can't do it." said Alger Then Gov. Tyler procoedod to mako a stump speech, with gestures, over the telephone. It would be humiliating to Virginia, tho old commonwealth." said, he. "to bo represented by half n regluiPiitin Cuba. It Is oiironly regi ment. Maior-Gflii. Lee, is from Virginia, nnd he would feel mortified that tho only Virginia regiment mndu no creditable upnenrauco.

No Action Taken on tha Jteport or Ilia C'ouit of Inquiry. Washington, Nov. 23. The commandant of the Brooklyn Navy Yard has reported to the Navy Department that the repairs to the orulsor Buffalo's machinery will be comptetod to-morrow, and orders have been Issuod for the ship to sail on Friday. No action has jet been taken by the department on the report of the court of Imiulryou tho breakdown of the machinery ot tho Buffalo just after she started from New York for Manila by the Suez Canal route. The department officials have not read carefully the evidence and tho tocord of pro ceedings and Hading, but a cursory examina tion has shown that Commander Joseph N. Ilemphlll and Passed Assistant Engineer rrederlck 0. Bleg. In charge of the Uulfnlo's machinery, nro aciiultted of responsibility for tho breakdown.

Lanuza tho Cuban Com missioners now In the United States tor the purpose of gaining from the Administration recognition of the Santa Cruz del fiur Assem bly as the governing body of Cuba. Gen. Garcia and his assoolates, when they come to New York on Monday night on the Beguram;a from Havana, planned to go to Washington this week to see the XTosldent, but after the meeting with Bettor Talma yesterday the Com missioners announced that they would delay their Washington trip until next week, and would meet Bettor Palma again at tho n off man House on Friday. Gonzales de Que sada. Secretary ot the Cuban Legation In Wash ington, has sent word to Seflor Talma that the Secretary of btate would meet the Cuban Commission, but a meeting with the Preside at was doubtful. Gen. Garcia la very anxious that the President should receive the commis sion from the Santa Crbi del Bur Assembly, and postponed the Washington trip with the hope of a brighter outlook, for official recognition. The Commissioners and the representatives of' the Junta weretogether In the commis sion's rooms at the HoL'rjan House for three hours. Gen. Garcia said that ho desired to talk with Seflor Palma. not so much to discuss the commisslou's plans as to learn from tho Junta's President what the Junta had been doing, Seflor Palma was better Informed than any one else as to tho events In the United Htatesdurlng the war, and as tho representative ot the Cuban people hero he was the one to place the commission In possession ot such information as he had. Both men denied that thro was any friction between the commis sion and the Junta. Gen. Gomez'a chief ot staff said: "The As sembly Is for tree Cuba, and as Its representa tive Sanor Palma is for the same principle. The commission and Honor Palma represent tho same cause, and whllo their duties hero are different, there can be no friction between them." "we have no differences," Seflor Palma told tho newspaper men, as be came out of the com mission's rooms. We are all for Cuba llbro, all united for freedom. It Is wrong to say there Is any friction between the Junta and the com- trtloaliMi The commission bringsfrom the Assembly a copy ot the resolutions adopted, nnd tnese are being translated into English for presen tation to tho President. They sneak of the needs ot Cuba aud thodisbanding of the army," Both Gou., Garcia and beflor Pnlma again denld that there was any annexation panv In Cuba. The only party In Cuba now was the In dependence party. Annexation could not bo thought of now. It might be in the future. The Independence party had oierwhclmed the an nexationists at Santa Cruz del bur, and It was the duty of the Cuban Commission from tho Assembly and the Cuban Junta in New York, as the representatives of the Cuban people in the United States, to do the people's bidding. The Junta talks independence now as strong ly as Gen. Garcia. The Junta emphatically denies Arthur Jack's story, told In Tub Son yesterday. The young American came up from Havana with the commission, and told the newspaper men that he .brought with him to tase to the President a copy oCannexation resolutions adopted after the adjournment of the Santa Cruz del Sur convention by the minority, or annexation party. Heald that the resolutions were signed by sir delegates and twenty three Cuban army olQcors, among the signers being Salvador CiBPero y Itetanoourt, first President of the Provisional Government: Geu. Jesus Babl. Gen. Carlos ltolpfr. Secretary of "T lader the Provisional Government, and Carlos Manual de Cespedes. loung Jack said that he also had letters for tho President from Oisnerqs. Cespfdej end ltololT, and a let ter tor Mr. Kubens ot the Junta. Jack said that he gave the resolutions and letters to Mr. Bubens on Monday night, aotlng upon his in etruetions from the Cuban leadors. After ilr. Bubens had looked them over he wasjo re turn them .to Jack, who was to go on to Wash ington to deliver tfiem to the President, Jack called at Mr. Bubens's oflloe on Tuesday saying that the oounsel tor tho Junta had told him to come there at that time to get the pa pers. Mr. BubeuB was not there. Jack looked for. Mr. Bubens again yesterday, and afterward told the newspaper men that he had an appointment with Bubens for this morning ut Q o'clock. "If he destroys those letters." said Jack yes terday. "I will go straight back to Cubr and get copies of them. I gave them to Bubens Monday night on the ship, and he promised to return them yesterday. Now he save he will give them back to me to-morrow morning." Jack Is a liar.", said Mr. Bubens yesterday. He gave me no letters or resolution" nnd I don't think he brought any up here. He was formerly a servant of Gen. Roloff. He is em ployed by the enemies of Cuba llbre. The men whom he claims to be annexationists are known lo be strong advocates of Ouba llbre. If they hal or have different views, ther would not be likely to Intrust letters express ing those iews to this man .lack. Jack was aboanl the first Laurada expedition. When he returned to this city ho told a story of being compelled by Hoanlsh deteotlves at a pistol's point to testify In the case. He is not by any means the sort of mail who would be intrusted with such messages, even if it wore probable such men as Clsneros, Babl and Koloff had sent (hem." COC SIXX'H SUBSTITUTE.

PUT XX XO DRFKXCE IX THE fJO ERXUEXT FORFEITVnR CASK. Smuggling Cases Still to Be Trled-Vnlue of Forfeited Diamonds About 24,000 Ivy Crurede Evidently Pleased by the Ver dict Offers for Her to Oo on the Rtnge, The suit of the United Btitcs (o declare for feited '.tho diamonds alleged to hare beon smuggled Into this country by Max ,T. Lasnr. a diamond dealer ol 24 Maiden lane, came to an abrupt closo In the United BtateaiDtstrict Court yesterday through the failure ot the defence to Introduce any evidence. By direction ot Judge Brown the Jury brought tn a-fen! let for the Government, forfeiting all. the diamonds named In the complaint except six package upon which It Is admitted that duty had been paid and which were seized In Lasar's office with the others In December last. Tho value of ths six packages exempted It said to be $21,000 and the value ot tho diamonds tor felted to ths Government about $30,000. ' The course adopted by counsel for the de fence was a comoleto surprise. Ex-Judge Dlttenhoofcr, ot counsel for the defence, said to the Court: "We are oonvlneej that the Government has not made out a case and that the defence Is not called upon to Introduce eurf evidence. We find ourselves In an anomalous position. Every Important witness we could call fortke defence is under Indictment, .Max J. Lasar, Mr. and Mrs. Emanuel 3. Lasar and Lee Rsloh man among them. And here I will say that Belchmau's statement was a surprise to ns. If we were to put the Laura upon tho stand statements they might make could ba used against them In the criminal trial whloh It pending. It they should go upon tlie-stand they could clear up the n-hole case, but under the circumstances they cannot do so. We ask your Honor to direct a verdict In favor, ot Max J. Lasar. the claimant, upon the ground that the Government has not made out a case." "It is not necessary for tho Latars to goon the stand to prove their Innocence." said United States District Attorney Burnett. "If they had Imported the goods legitimately there would, be plenty of documentary evidence to prove It." Judge Brown, after explaining the law In the ease to tho jury, said: "The burden of proof Is thrown upon the claimant. It rests with him to ehow that duty was paid upon the goods, and that they were not entered contrary to law. The evidence as to the importation of goods is easily obtain able. There might be a ease where there would bo difficulties, but such a case would be iie. ns ilu eviuenco nas oeen'inrrouucou on the part ot the defence the defence doe not take up the burden of proof whloh the law Prescribes. This leaves It with the Court to direct a vcrdlat." The defeooe was allowed sixty days within whloh to fllo an appeal. Collector Bldwell. the last witness for the Government, corroborated the testimony pre viously given, regarding Belehman's: state ment In the Custom. House that he had $50. 000 worth, pt smuggled diamonds In firs pos session, which belonged to Lasar. The Col lector also stated that llelchman had told htm that after Lasafs return from Europe there had been nearly S100.000 worth of diamonds In the sate in Lasar's office. Lasar had never stated to him that he had paid duty on the diamonds, the Collector said. Tho result of the trial evidently gave great satisfaction to Ivy Crurede. who oamo here from England to testify against Lasar. 8he Is tho roving woman who travelled from Eng land to Montreal with him when tho diamonds were brought over. She swore that be prom ised to marry her. Bhe.held a little levee In the courtroom after adjournment yesterday, a number-Tot persons.

Gorman could not roach Byan, though he triod timo and ngaln to land a right swing on tho jaw. As If by Instinct Itrnn seemed to know when the blows were coming, and he simply flitted out of harm's wuy, Gorman was In a weakened condition at ths end ottheeighth round, and ten seconds before the gong sounded Byan sent him to the floor with a right-hand swing on the law. The boll saved Gorman, who complained of a broken rib, and bis seconds throw up the sponge. Dr. E. W.
