WASHINGTON, March 23.?A vivid
word pictiaie of the horrors and bar?
barities of concentration vm the island
of Cuba was drawn in the Senate today
toy Mr. Gallinger, of New Hampshire.
The Senator recently visited Cuba to
personally study the situation of the re
conoentrados and to ascertain the facts
concerning the general Cuban qu*?etlon.
It was known that Mr. GaJHnger was
to speak upon Cuba today, and Ia*.g
before the Senate convened the gal
llaries were packed. Almost as soon as
the Senate convened. Mr. Bacon, of
Georgia, introduced the following Joint
That the government and people of
the United Slates, while avowing that
at am times and to the uttermost limit,
they maintain their nafonal ?onor and
protect their materiaC intere: s; and
while they will count no cost of blood or
treasure which may be necessary for
this accomplishment of this high resolve,
nevertheless declare that it is their de?
sire to live at peace with all the na?
tions and peoptes vjtf the earth. That
supremely confident in their loyalty and
patriotic devotion of the people of every
class and of every section of tine- coun?
try, strong In more than 10,000.000 of
people, resolute, brave and ready for
any personal sacrifice the honor and
safety of their government may require
. of them, aintl fio'a in the poo<*oo?ion o?
material resources, practically without
.limit, the United States nevertheless de?
sire and intend, In- the present threaten?
ing emergency, earnestly and patiently
Vo use every practicable and honorable
means to preserve peace so far as the
eatme may be consistent with the honor
of the nation, and' with their duty to
themselves and to otheos.
That while unswerving in their pur?
pose to fully protect the honor and the
property of the nation, as wed I as the
persons of its citizens, and while deter?
mined upon the performance of their
duty to humanity and to a neighboring
people strugglng fenr liberty, the Unltied
States, desiring peace and d'eprtoating
war, will In food faith endeavor to ac?
complish' these ends, consistently with
national honor, through' peaceful agen?
cies and without unnecessary resort to
woir and bloodshed.
Mr. Bacon said that owing to the im?
portance of this resolution he would not
ask for its Immediate consideration, but
wouC'd allow it to lie on the table until
Then Mr. Hale, of Maine, chairman of
the naval affairs committee, quietly rose
._ ..^and-favorably o-^iwvWK^a "tHo fe-ui p^ovia
??> lng Vor relief for the survivors of the
Maine catastrophe. There was a sup?
pressed murmur of expectancy In the
galleries, but the measure was read' and
passed without a word of debate.
Mr. TilC'man. of South Carolina, an?
nounced that he wound, next Tuesday at
3 P. M.. ask the Senate to consider the
resolutions upon the dieath of his col?
league, the late Senator Earle.
Mr. Gallinger's speech foi'.bwed. He
spoke in a low, dlear tone of voice, dis?
tinctly audible throughout the cham?
ber. When he declared that a govern?
ment that would starve 400.000 of Its
people woUid do anything, and followed
this with the further declaration that
the wives of the brave men lost in the
Maine disaster could not 'be atoned for
with gold and silver, a spontaneous
wave of applause swept over the gal?
leries, and the vice-president had dif?
ficulty In restoring order. When he had
concluded he was accorded a tremen?
dous burst of applause which the vice
president made little effort to restrain.
Mr. GaUinger detailed some of the
events leading up to his arrival in Cu?
ba, and of his reception by General Lee.
"General Lee," said' he, "Is deserving
. of the highest possible praise for the
manner In which; he carries himself in
Havana. Coed and fearless in the midst
of difficulties and dangers, he never
loses sight of the fact that he Is an
American citizen, nor Is he unmindful
of the tremendous responsibilites and
diutTes of his position."
Referring to his call upon the auton?
omist cabinet, Mr. GalE?nger said It was
evident that the President of the cabi?
net was not encouraged in the work.
"The truth is." salcf" Mr. Gallinger,
"autonomy Is a flat faffluTe, opposed
alike by the ultra-Spaniards and Cu?
?Mr. Gallinger recalled' that he had
heard during debates in the Senate, die
nlats that a state of war existed in
Cuba, but it required only a brief per?
sonal observation to convince one that
?war actually did exist. A d'esolated
country and its stricken people told the
story more eloquently than it could be
f??};.. conveyed in woTds. "The war in Cuhat
however," said he. "is a war of starva?
tion und extermination?a war more
cruel than the world has ever ljefore
'The Spanish troops do not Impress
- Americans as great soldiers. They are
i~ under a lax discipline, and are poorly
uniformed and inadequately fed. The
* high officials do most of their fighting
in hotels and cafes, the actual! fighting
beng done by those of -inferior grade.
On the contrary, the Insurgents are
comfortably clad and under strict dis?
cipline. They occupy a large pert of the
island, and could, in Mr. Gallinger's
Judgment, take Havana or Matanzas
whenever it might suit their purpose,
although those cities could not be held
%f.y- for lack of n navy.
"The scenes in the streets of Havana
are harrowing beyond description. Peo?
ple !n want and suffering are every?
where seen, snd walking skeletons meet
*ne on every hand. Naked children,
emaciated and ragged women, and dis?
eased and starving men throng the
streets, the hotel lobbies and every place
of public resort."

great government was, waging a war of
extermination instead of a war of hon

It occurred to me as I looked upon
the scenes of suffering and horrors that
the Cuban reeoncentrados might well
have adopted Vhe Words of Dante. ' wiho

A visit to Matanzas Wospitalw re?

sorrow and suffering were depicted im
?their Worst forms.
"If'there was food in these hospita?s,"
said Mr. iGaiH?tiiger, "I did mot discover
it, mei'ther were there signs of medi?

"The number of people who have
starved dm Cuba will never be definitely
known it 1s estimated that 800.000
were driven from their homes into t'he
.iiUies and towns. I had it from Span?
ish authority that according to their
figures 225,000 already had perished, but
it is Kai?i that the 'Red Cross Society
t'.s in possession of figures showing that
125,000 Cubalns have died as a result of
Spanish ctrueity from starvation, and
Jhat 200,000 more must imevi'talb'ly die.
"I have been asked roamy times, what
olf the IMaime? I do not know. This,
'iuowever, I do kroow; a government thntt

?Mr. Gail linger said there was liitltle
real loyalty to Spain in Cuba, as would
?be (demonstrated when the houir of
trial should' come. He did not believe
that Stpalim; could' subdue the 'imwungeinte.

Ulaniimity of Opinion as to the Course
He Will Pursue.
(By Telegraph.)
'March 23.?The Associated' Press bulle?
tin with reference to the transmission
of the full report of the count of in?
quiry to Washington was read to the
principal consular and' navul officials
here, and also to the bist known oor
respondents. There is suiptlsing unan?
imity of opinion that the probable
course of events will be that President
McKihley will transmit the 'findings to
Madrid with a note saying that the
Maine disaster was the culminating
point of a state of affairs that must
not continue to exist; that the United
States Is unwilling to feed indefinitely
hundreds of thousands o. starving wo?
men and children, or that the commerce
?of Cuba be uttorly destroyed: that the
war must stop; that the UnHed States
Is willing to act as arbitrator amd to
use its best endvavors to arrange
plan to which Spain and the insurgents
mlight agree.
If Spain declines mediation, as is
probable, and seeks to put off a definite
settlement, President MeKinley, it is be?
lieved here, wilj transmit the note as
?n ultimatum, together with the con?
sular .reports, to Congress, where the
Independence of Cuba will be declared
to strong terms. Then, if Spain insists
upon war, she must declare it. These
views are Interesting as being the opin?
ions of those here on the ground as to
what is likely to happen within the
next fortnight.

One of the remarkable phenomena of
trad'=- at present is reflected by Brazil's
sale of warships to this countc-y. A
careful examination- of it prompts the
suggestion that the South American
republic had fiscal rather t'ham friendly
reasons for disposing of the vessels. The
price of Brazilian coffce has now fallen
lower than it was ever quoted' before.
The figure an regular contract deliveries
Is 5 cents per pound. Am immense crop
has been gathered, and this fact is now
bearing the market for the product al'l
over the w^nld. Brazil, which reflects
am export duty upon it, has actually

?reduction in price. The loss of revenue

La Lucha, in an editorial under the
caption of "Expectation in the world."
maintains that the American court of
inquiry, owing to the short time it was
here, could not give a scientific .report
on the Maine disaster.
| "American naval officers," says La
Lucha, "are. not likely to decide against
j brother officers. The divers could not
! give expert testimony owing to t'he fact
that the machinery was imbedded four
feet in ttva mod. It is greatly to be- re?
gretted that 'more time atwJ une were
not given to the preparation of a report
for which the whole wor'.d1 waits, and
which Is HfeHy" to change the entire
feelings of a part of the American peo?
ple towards Spain and Cuba."
La Lucha publishes also an interview
with General Lee. which quotes him as
saying that he knows nothing of the
nature of the report, but is satisfied
that General' Blanco never conceived
the disaster 'until he heard the shock

lie You Rest
Do a little thinking- about
the cost of gas lighting and
cooking. With gas at $1.60
per thousand, you get 6i feet
for one cent. You can get 24
candle power for five feet of
gas properly burned in a good
burner. This makes you a
first-class light of 34 candle
power for five-sixths cents per
hour, or light equal to an
average, electric light for
about I cent per hour. Again,
take an improved Welsback
burner, consumes S feet per
hour, gives 80 candle power.
Just think, an 80 candle pow?
er light for i cent per hour,
Ponder this over... It is the
cheapest artificial lighting
aitent known. If you are not
convinced, call.at the Gas Of?
fice, 2713 Washington avenue,
and we will prove it to you.
As to cooking, gas at (1 per
thousand is not half as ex?
pensive as coal at $0.50 per
ton, or wood even at the pres?
ent prices. Coal oil and gaso?
line ate not to be mentioned
in the same week as gas for
cok i t! tr.aud then the comfort,
cleanliuess and efficiency. Call
at the Gas Office at your con?
venience and we will take
pleasure in showing you the
benefits. Come whether you
have gas at present or not.
