It has at least one murder to Its credit within little more than a year. It Is a place of "speak easies." Police raids aro common things there. They do not even attract a crowd. They are almost always successful. In this It Is different from Willow Tree alley. There are no "speak cnsles" there. There Is more jioverty n Pleasant alley than there is in Willow Tree. There are fewer Im moral women. There are fewer people. No white iieople live in Pleasant alley. Those who live In the "T" at the east end arc said to be hard working people. Tcople migrate to and from the court. There are a- few stores In the place, but no saloons. Everything is of the cheap-st in these stores, and still sells for every cent Jt is Worth. The" houses are of both brick aud frame. The regulation residence Is two stories high, with four rooms to the house. A conservative estimate would place tltree people In every room. Of course there are children in the al ley. They are taught crime and hre con sequently useful. Probably there is "no such placo in thecity for "crap shooting" as this court. The lads who are too young to tako part in the games are stationed in the center and aj; tlje two mouths of thcalley to-watchfortbepolice. Pleasant alley is distinct and exclusive in this, it Is said. GUARD THE CRAP GAMES. This corps of informers and guards hare a sign language. Theymakeno outcry when the officers are approaching, but give the alarm by movements of tbe arms, drop ping the hat, and like signals. It Is a code that all understand, and tbe. police are o ALLISON AS THE PREMIER Up-lo-Da:e Cabinet Sla'.e Coa taias His Name. SENATOR QUAY ALSO ON IT I'uclflc Coas,t to lie Recognized bT 'the Appointment of Hepresientatlve nermann Mow the Gold Demo crats! Will Bo Taken Cure Of For eign Appointments) for Them. The up-to-date Cabinet sinle nuw contains the name of Senator Allison as premier of the nuw administration. Senator Allison fills all the requirements. He has been a possible Presidential candi date, lie has a wide experience. He is from the middle West, the great battle ground of the campaign, and he Is a warm personal friend of the President-elect. Hesidis thesi. qualllicalions tne i-en dor iwssessosan ample fortune and can hold his own in the social world. He is about sev enty years old, and Tour jears as Been tary of State would be a fitting close to his long and honorable career. He would favor an uggressiveroreign policy, and woulddo more to push liiteriinlKn.il biun-tiUiism than most any other Republlcanof note. OTIIEK NAMES ON IT. The same slate contains the naino of Senator Quay for one of the portfolios. The Senator is known lo be enamored of the Navy Department, and would like to retire from political life arter a term there. Hut It Is thought thut Ills great ex ecutive ability would show to better ad vantage: at the head or the Tostofficc Department. Be that as it may, it looks as If the senator comet nave euuer port folio if he so desires. The guessershave comedown to the fact Uiat the Secretaryship of the Treasury is to go to New Y'ork. Cornelius N. IilisHis to be the man. Mr. Piatt will come back to the Scnatuif he chooses; if not, he will send one or his lieutenants, From Wisconsin will come cither Mr:Bal cock or Mr. l'ajne. The latter gentleman seems tohave the call. If he wants nnj thing. Ills work during the campaign deserves recognition, but his health and his business may require him to decline aiijiffers. In such an event Mr. Babcock would bu first choice for either the Interior or the Fost office Department. For Attorney General it is thought Major McKinley will go to -his own State. Hon. R. W. Tajlor, now representing Major Mc Kinley '8 old district, Is said to be the man for the place. Re is a good lawjer, and the portfolio would lose no dignity while in his hands. The Pacific Coast is to bo recognized In Uils new official household. It Is thought tli at, Representative Hermann of Oregon will finally be decided upon. He lost his chance of returning to Congress by remain ing at his post here last summer. Uc refused to go to his State, thinking his place was here. His long servile on the hampered and hindered by it that it is almost impossible to catch tbe Inhabitants of the place In their small crimes. Everything in and about tbe place lias" a different air from similar things in tbe outside world. The alley Is not dark be cause tbe buildings are not tall .enough. But It Is very dirty, with numerous stables opening Into it. Even the cats and dogs in tbe place are poor and dirty and grizzly looking. They have sore eyes and are ravenous. Wh en one walks through the place he does not notice as many over acts as Is the casein passing through Willow Tree alley. The prostitutes who live there do not sit on the front steps of their houses or run out into the streets. The railroad tracks form a'boundary line between the peopleof Willow Tree alley and those of Pleasant alley and oilier courts to the south. It Is not only a geographical boundary, but a social division also. The denizens of botb places consider themselves superior to the others, and wish to be let severely all ne by their rivals In Iniquity. HERE SPEAKEASIES FLOURISH. .Women are again the central figures in the alley's economy. They maintain the "speakeasies," or the places where liquors are sold botb on Sundays and through the week without a license. There is a row 'Of four small brick houses at the northwest corner of the Intersection of the main courts of the block. "In (ine of these houses lives Rebecca Wil liams. She Is only 'about thirty years of age, and is lately out of the workhouse. She has been convicted twice of conduct ing an unlicensed bar on these premises.

Two of the most tni)ortaat foreign em bassies, It Is thought, would be the very thing for them. Gen. Buckncr may be in vited to go abroad. The only objection would be his age.

THEY WANT RECOGNITION Such Action on the Fart of President Clevelund Will Prevent Repetition of Snuttlnh Barbarity Which Fol lows livery KnsraKemeiit Englaud May Tuke a Huud. New York. Nov. 10, Not since the fili bustering ship Hawkins foundered off llarnegat with Gen. Collxto Garcia and a number of Cuban revolutionists on board has there been sucn activity in the head quarters of the Cuban Junta In this city as was noticeable today. The announce ment that Wevler was about to take the field, massing an army of 200,000 men on the island and end the insurrection by one fierce onslaught of war, has stirred up the Cuban patriots of this city and inquiry for details Is being made of the- members of the Junta. The Cubans here do not expressany alarm as to the outcome, but they do think that President Cleveland should recoguizu the insurgents as belligerents and by that act prevent the repetition of .Spanish bur- fcarity which follows every engagement in whth the Spanish troops obtain ,ny tidvintage. It is said that the Junta will again petition President Cleveland to take action in regard to the matter. Senior Castillo, one of the most prom inent members of the Junta, said today: "President Cleveland ought to accept the belligerent resolutions or Congress as the expression of the people of this country and act on them. From tills time until the summer months, if the war lasts that long, the revolution will be Mgorously pros ecuted, and as both Cubans and Spaniards are determined to end the strife, the most desperate battles of the war will occur within the next few weeks. INSURGENTS WELL AKMED. "The insurgents have now three dynn nlte guns which have already done '.'ff-c-tive work, anil with these and, the large quantity of onus and ammunition which they are receiving by every expedition, they are in better condition than any time here tofore. "The report that Spain will make a determined effort to defeat the insurgents does not. frighten us, for we have heard such stories before, aud so far as the 20O 000 soldiers are concerned, I am sure that Spain cannot In her present condition sup port such a large army. J3ut the Insurgents are well armed and in good health and will continue the fight regnrdless of any action taken by the Spaniards." Senor Trujillo, another patriot, is con stantly in receipt of information from all parts of the island. Speaking of tbe bar barities practiced by the Bpaaisb troops be said today: "Many stories of Spanish atrocities bare lately come" from Cienfuegos, Cuba, but of all those perpetrated by tbe Spanish guer rillas in this district on non-combatants, a razor several times over a man's neck until his life was nearly despaired of. Eor all these things she suffered lmprisonmentat Tarious'Hirues. - THE WASHINGTON FAMILY. The Washington family occupies another one of these small brick houses. The ihterlor furnishings are meager and even necessities are not over abundant. The furniture has all seen many, if not tetter, days, and the carpet adorns the floor spasmodically. v The head of the household is Martha Washington. She hastwodaiighters, Mary and Matilda. Mary Washington was once arrested for profanity. She resisted the officer and Uamelia Courtney placed a knife in her hand. She used Is effectively on the bluecoat and both women crved jail and workhouse sentences as a result. The 'Washington home Is said to be a rendezvous of young girls. The police make this complaint about It. Girls of from ten to seventeen jears of age congre gate about the place every evening, it is said. The girls do nut stay at the place all night, but the small hours of the morn ing, are reached before they go home, as a rule. 'lliere was a report that bread had been stolen from some of the grocers In' the southwest. The police suspectedthe Wash ington place and began an investigation then-. They dlscovereci forty loaves of bread, more than any single family in Bcar'K Gap Is supposed to have in the larder at ope time. Three men were arrested. They were ArtluitWelsh, William Bowman andCharles King. They were convicted of being sus picious characters ami have jet to. serve the remainder of a ninety days' sentence in tbe workhouse. Alice Patch. is one of the central figures of the court. She makes frequent visits the killing several days ago of Rcnry D'Aiilgon.awesiItliyFr'entb-CanadlaiisuRar planter, is probably the most ruthless of the outrnges charged to these men. "The victim of this latest outrage was an English subject, and the fartHliithecasL were at once made known to British Consul George Fowler, who lias begun an investi gation. "Thus far the Spanish soldiers have been careful not to molest citizens of England, and thedeath of D'Abi gon is." the rirst which the representative of Gre-at Britain has been compelled to act upon, and the" gereral reeling In Cienfuegos is that Consul Fowler will demand eltheran indemnity or at least an apology, and If this is not made, it is likely that there will be considerable trouble. "D'Abigon was visited at his summer home at Kotlas by four Spanish guerrillas from Cartagena, nneiirbytow-ti. Themajor of this band suspected d'Abigon craidlng the Insurgents and wanted the planter brought before him. , "When the four guerrillas arrived at tlic house d'Abigon was sick and reluseil to accompany them to Cartagena, where upon, without warning, and beforo thf eyes or his wire, the four emptied l heir riries into the unfortunate man's body, killing him instantly." ' Neither Scnor Trujillo nor Senor Cas tillo could say what. If any. action the Junta proposed taking, although from the activity noticeable at headquarters the-ln-ference Is drawn that reinforcements are likely to be scut to the Cut tin patriots from this sfde.

In his answer the claimant says that he Is the true ami hona fide owner of the tug Dauntless. He claims that the llrcl fails to allege that anj-time while the Dauntless as engaged in navigating the ocean, that she was not provided with two life boats, as required by navigation laws; that the libel Tails to allege that she, at any time, earned fiftv additional uassencers with out being provlde-d with the additional lire boats required; that the litel rails to allege that she carried any passengers at any time.

This is the question which Lonl Salis bury answered in Tils spe."h Monday nigit. TERM MODIFIED- The concluding suggestion of Secretsry Onlcy for sixty years as the period for acquisition of title to property led to a counter proposal from Lord Salisbury to reduce the time to twenty years, which was the term common In the United States, or to twenty-one years, which was common law m England. Venezuela, however, would not consent to this, nor did Secretary Olney entertain thet suggestion for such a redectmn Considerable discussion finally resulted in a virtual agreement on fifty years as the periijd.
