He should watch what goes on about him and drink In nil the Information that will tend to advance him. In all situation" nnd all circumstances ho must be scrupulously honest--never leave the straight pat' Cheerfulness diligence nnd honesty should be li's guiding lights, and ir;e:-s something very ad verse occurs, success will be his re ward." NEW YORK'S POISON MYSTERY. District Attorney Sy He in Inuliln t ?'Kkc( nn Arrt. New York.

This no cuallfled somewhat when Atked what would happen if the sus pect in the case should attempt to leave the Jurisdiction of the state. He Is fully conversant with all that the detective investigation has elicited, for it was all laid before him yesterday af ternoon at nolice headquarters by Chief Devery and Captain McCluskey, with the objc t of determining wheth er the case were ripe enough for an ar rest. Although he gave It as his firm be lief that the police case Is Incomplete, he expressed the fullest confidence in the police detectives, In a statement which he mede to-day to representa tives of the Tress. "I will not authorize the arrest of any man on such a terrrible charge of murder unless I believe that I can con vict him." Thus he stated his posi tion. "Do you tMnk from what you now know that the same person sent th3 poison to liarnet and to Cornish?" he was asked. "That Is my opinion," he answered. "Has any attempt been made to have the suspect identified as the purchaser of the wig and beard in Newark?" "Is Mr. Molinecx the suspect?" and "Would the detective department per mit the suspect to leave the jurisdic tion of the st.-te?" were the only ques tions asked him which he refused to answer. He Baid that it would b manifestly unfair to reply to those, but he di l say that any attempt on the part of the suspect to defeat the ends of Jus tice by flight, would cause prompt ac tion on the part of the police. He Invited the reporters and tho public to aid in the detective work. This was tho Invitation: "If any of you newspaper men or If any one brings to me such evidence as will convince a reasonable man of tho guilt of any person in this case, I will go at once and swear out a warrant and the arrest will be made as quickly as the accused person can be reached by the officers." One of the reporters present askei him If any such informant would hava to be publicly known In the case and was answertd In the negative. Colonel Gardiner declared It was all rubbish to say that political influence hindered the arrest. CiihI1 Nugn Win. Albany, N. Y., Jan. 11.

This will obviate the necessity of call ing upon Congress for any nsslslance In n financial way and the use i f the' collei fe'.l taXe'S to make permanent Int provcnieiits will enable the United Stntes to turn over the Islanel to It:, future goveii;ers In n first rate condi tion.

Colon. Warlng's estimate of the Im provements needed In Havana sit;; the cost nt about ten million dollars. The customs receipts of the Island of Cuba feir a perleid of twelve years under Spanish rule, and Including some years of Insurgent- warfare, thinly disguised official peculation, nnd other dlseour nglng conditions, nvevaged nearly thir teen mUllon ibillars a yenr. The receipts nt Havana nlone made itn nearly nine millions of this total. The best ou.ilifle'd experts who have looked Into the subject lately agree In predicting1 that with the present pro visional tar'f.' and nn honest adminis tration of the customs, tho receipts from Imposts will come very near lei doubling those under Snnnlsh rule. In that case-. a';iieugh Havana would re ceive only her pro rata share of the mone y collect d, there would be enough of that to ft: -ry out the Waring pro gramme with a neat surplus to devote to othe r purposes. It !s s.iiel to be the rres'dent's de sire to give such an exhibition of the pos sibilities of wholesome udmlnlst rat If n In Cuba ns.v.-lll set the- pace for the Cuban administration, If It ever comes; on the- theory that, having once tasted the fruits of rood government, the Cu bans will not allow the ir own adminis tration tei f- '1 very far short of the standard F"t up by the United Stat.'S government while In possession of the Island. DREV rUS CASE AGAIN. IlreyfiiK'n Iteply Item! to the Cabinet. ( lianib r of Ilcputleii Meet. Tarls, Jan. 11. The resignation of M. C'uosnny de Reaurepalre as presi dent of the civil section of the court of cassation haa revived interest in the Dreyfus case, which had calmed down during the last few days o the fever point. The antl-Preyfusltes are doing ev erything possible to discredit the court of cassation, as It is generally accept ed In the best Informed circles that the court is prep-irlng to render Judgment In favor of Dreyfus. The minister of Justice, M. Lebret, nnnounced that M. Mazeau, the first president of the court of cassation, will preside over the criminal section of the court of cass .tlon Instead of M. Loew. when the Dreyfus inquiry Is terminat ed and the court meets to make a de cision. This step has baen taken In conse quence of the virulent attacks on M. Loew, based on the fact thut he is a Jew. The minister also read the telegraph ic deposition from Dreyfus, in which he not only ieclared that he had nev er confessed that he was guilty to Captain Lrbrun-Renault who had charge of tho prisoner at the time of his condemnn'.ion and degradation, but insisted that he had always protested his Innocence and had intimated, after his degradatl m on the parade ground of the milita y school at Paris, his In tention to de lare publicly that his In nocence woe d be recognized in two or three years. Porter S; t'lil)iin Are. Cnpieli'e. New York, Jan. 11. Robert P. Por ter, who haf Just returned from Cuba, whither he was sent as special com missioner bv President McKInley, spoke at Cooler Union under the aus pices of the People's Institute on "Practical Problems that Confront us In Cuba." Mr. Porter stated that ho had been ordered by the president to consider only the good of all the people of Cuba In making hU report, and not to be In fluenced by either Spanish- or Cuban nationality. He wns to remember that Cuba was not a possession, but a trust. The tariff regulat'ons recommended by him went Into, ef'ect on January 2. This tariff was on!v twenty-five per cent, of the one charrod by the Spaniards, but he thought It would prove ample, as "honest men and not thieves would col lect and administer the revenues." Mr. Porter said that the political fut ure of Cuba was a difficult problem to dispose of. The Intelligent Cubans fa vored annexation, but he was firmly convinced that tho Cubans could gov ern themselves, and would make ap plication for admission to the Union as a state.
