WASHINGTON. Jan. H.^Perfect
calm prevails 'in Havana, according to
dispatches received by Senor Dupuy de
Lome, the Spanish minister, last night
and thj? morning. One of these dis
patches, fllea at 1 o'clock this morning
by Secretary Genetal Consosto says:
"The tumult has nott been continued.
Calm is preserved throughout the city.
I nelievi that the normal condition wall
be perfectly established. Fortuna>tely
there is nut it single casualty that we
have to regret."
Aside from this dispatch the minister
lias reeeivrd a number of minor Urs
patches all indicating an absence of
disturbance and that no apprehension
is felt by the authorities. He has given
directions that tvery development be
communicated to him. and. in view of
this fact, .'.oss not credit a report ithat
i her* was another outbreak yesterday,
keying tii it any auch outbreak would
i.-ave been communicated to him and
: i.-ait the report doubtless arose eithei
from a delayed cablegram base-d on the
outbreak previously reported, or else
that there was some minor disturbance
of such a trivial character that it did
not get to the attention of Ihe official
he-ada of the Cuban government,
leaner in the day Senor de Lome re?
ceived a cablegram dated Havana, 10
A- M., raying that perfect tranquility
prevailed at that 'hour and that no
further trouble was expected. Assist?
ant Secretary Day came over to the
White House from the State Depart?
ment before the cabinet meeting and
left a telegram that had been received
from Concur General Lee. It was
sent from (Havana during the middle
hours of the night and reported the
existence there of much exc4temen;
and chronicled the attacks on ithe news?
paper offices in continuation of those
of the day before, and the participa?
tion of some soldiers in the demonstra?
tions.
General Lee's cablegram, it Is also
learned, stated that while he did not
see any Indications of the resumption
of ihe riots, yet, dn view of the Inflam?
mable situation in Havana he believed
tti?L there might he further .trouble.
He added that -he did not anticipate an?
other outbreak but yet 'Would1 not be
surprised at one. 'None of the disturb?
ance, he reported. had been directed
against the United States or American
citizens.
When the cabinet .met a.t 11 o'clock
this dispatch formed the basis of a
short discussion. The members of the
ca'bine't processed to feel satisfied with
the situation. The Senate- resolution
calling for information as to what had
been done by the President to safe?
guard American interests in -Havana
during the period of rioting, was re?
ceived from the State Department and
also briefly balked over, with a view to
determining the nature of the reply .to
he made. The mtain subject under con?
sideration- before the cabinet, however,
it .is declared, was the prospect of the
Hawaiian annexation treaty, and not
Cuban relations.
The oa'binet .discussion showed that
the President, while decided not to send
a warship to Cuba ait present, does
purpose to keep one or more vessels
mithin a reasonable distance of Ha?
vana so that one of our ships may
reach there within six hours in the
event -of sudden cali for its presence
from General Lee. 'Should" our consul
general say that the emergency de?
mands it. a vessel will be sent instantly.
It is stated.
The r.ews of the day from Con?nl
Ckner.il Lee came ti the Star.e Depart?
ment cbout 2 o'clock and was at once
sent over to the White'House. It went
to confirm the previous reports and was
n simple statement by General Lee
that at noon today aTV was quiet in
Il.ivpna.
The North Atlantic Squadron which
has heen gathering .in 'Hampton Roads
Is to soil southward tomorrow. Lest
there should be any misunderstanding
of the purpose of the cruise, 'which has
has a!r?arty been described in the ord?
ers n? one of evolution and drill plan?
ned many months ago, the orders under
which the vessels willl proceed have
been made public, and. taken in con?
nection with the d?partirvtn-t's orders
to Admiral Sicard. the "Navy Depart?
ment ways now that the squadron's
movements have no reference to Cuba.
PRESS CENSORSHIP.
HAVANA, Jan. 14.?A decree has
been published prohibiting the publica
tioti in daily newspapers of.jCdbi#-Ci'.5v"

censored.
Vtola.to.rs of the -law are warned that
they are under military jurisdiction.
Another edict will he published short?
ly, forbidding the gathering of groups
of more than four persons, either in the
streets or in the stores.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14.?The status
of Cuban affairs in the House of Rep?
resentatives has undergone no change
as a result of recent events at Havana.
?Neither the committee on foreign af?
fairs nor the sub-committee on. Cuba,
has had any meeting -to consider .this
subject, and no meeting is contemplat?
ed. Representative Adams, of Pennsyl?
vania, is chairman of the Cuban sub
committtee and he does not regard .re?
cent developments a-s sufficient -to war?
rant calling the sub-committee togeth?
er.
Mr. Hltt, chairman of the full com?
mittee, is nee ti cent over .the situation.
He has given no intention thus far that
he will eail the committee's attention
to .the suhject. No official information
had been received from the State (De
oartnw-nt and in the absence of this
there is no basis for action.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14.?The Sec?
retary of State has been notified by
Mayor Warwick, of Philadelphia, that
the citizens permanent relief eomm.it
iee of that city has collected and holds
at his disposal the sum of $5.000 for the

^K.AJfcliBO^?jU^^^ 14.?Excite?

an Indian uprising.
Indian Commissioner Jones is hold?ng
I court . t Wewoka and the deputies of the

made by the lynchers to hide their iden?
tity, it is probable that the leade-i-s will
be arrested by the United' States au?
thorities. They can only be tried on the
charge of kidnapping and taking the
murderers by force from- the Seminole

Both sides have been, exerted and

Mr. Tillman announced thut on ac?
count of the absence ot his coll<?asue.
Mr. McLaurin, he would ask that the
eulogies up?.<n the late Senator Joseph A.
Ea:le, which were to have been present?
ed loday. be postponed until some later
date to be announce! hereafter. The re?
quest was granted.
The Senate thent at 12:30 P. M., on
motion of Mr. Davis, chairman of nhe
committee vin. foreign relations, went
.ntn executive s**?h>tt.
The executive session continued u.n(.X
4:30 P. M.. when, in open session, a
message from the President, transmit?
ting his approval of the award of the
Bering Sea commissioners, was received
and read.
Consideration of bills on the pension
calendar was then begun and nineteen
were pass-.d.
Mr. Butler, of North Carolina secured
the rassage of a J. lint resoiut.on to car?
ry into effect two resolutions of ttie
eontlnental congress directing monu?
ments to be e;ected to the memory of
General Francis Nash and William Lee
Davidson, e'f North Carolina, .the cost
of each to be $5,000. The Senate then,
at 5:05 P. 'M., on motion of Mr. Quay,
adjournejf until Monday.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14.?Almost the
entire four hou:s of the executive ses?
sion of the Senate today was devoted
to 'tine indirect consideration of 'the
nomination e>f IHon. Joseph Mc-Kenna.
now attorney general, to be associate
Justice of the Supreme Court. The
discussion wais the result of an effort
>m .the part of Senator Allen, of Nebras?
ka, ito secure a postponement for two
weeks. In the end a compromise was
reached deferring consideration until a
week from today, oh the condition that
the Nebraska Senator should agree, to
allow a \v>te to be taken on thait day
The Hawaiian treaty was not touched
upon during t'he session.
The debate upon Mr. McKen-n-a's nom?
ination was precipitated by Senator
Hoar, chairman of the committee of
judiciary, who called up the nWJJ&JSjuoxi
1 n ajsa?4 tace. wjith^s. !fSii[VSot y as t er
'iZy and asked to. Immediate action.
In doing this Mr. tHoa.r spoke briefly
ot the opposition to Mr. McKennn. say?
ing that the judiciary committee had
investigated most of the charges made
and had reached .the conclusion that
they were without foundation. He said
thait the greater number of charges bad
ibeen made by the members of the
American Protective Association and
that as ifhey had been founded solely
upi>n the fact that Mr. IMcKenna. was a
Catholic in religion they had not bi-en
deemed worthy of serious considera?
tion. Mr. Hour dwelt at some length
upon this poi'nit, excoriating any men
who would attempt to inject a question
of religion Into a controversy over a
man'si fitness for office. He said that
such an effort was entirely un-Amen
can and un-patrlotic and should not for
a moment receive the consideration of
fair-minded men.
Senator White, of California, also
spoke of the effort of the A. P. A. to
interfere with the course of the Senate
in giving premier attention to a question,
the determination of which should de
oend upon considerations of fitness and
justice as between,man and man. rath?
er than upon an appeal to bigotry,
prejudice and a.false claim of patriot?
ism. fHe spoke o'f the A. P. A.'s as
"foots who could not be properly char?
acterized' in the Senate."
tt was here that IMr. Allen Interposed
an objection ito Immediate action. When
his request for two weeks' delay was
met with refusal he tGok the floor and
proceeded to give his reasons for the
request, which were in the main that
he wanted, and he t'houghit the Senate
.should have more aime for consideration
than had been given to it. He called
attention to the importance of the office
to which Mr. Mc-Kenna had been
named.
He said' that so far as the opposi?
tion of tlhe A. P. A., was concerned,
k did not influence him in the least,
and he agreed with all that had been
said as to the impropriety of interfer?
ence in a matter ot this character on
account of religious prejudices or pre?
dilections. Tn-?re was still other charg?
es which were to his mind far more
serious, and to prove that such was the
case he read at 'lengtlh from letters and
newspapers attacking IMr. MeKemna's
record as an attorney and jurist on the
ground of want of legal attainments.
It was 4:30 P. M. befo:e an agreement
was reached for conculding *he Mc
Kenna matter at the sitting on next
Friday, and by general consent the
Senate postposed consideration of tirw
Hawaiian treaty until Monday.

sular appropriation bill todiay.but ow?
ing to the excited condition of affairs

to be printed from 150,000 to 75,000. As
