Dealers and Others.
Chief Elliot, of the Department of Chari
tlei, strongly urges the necessity for a city
hospital. Ho points out the unsuitableness
and inadequacy of the City Farm as an asy
lum for unfortunates of all degrees, and de
clares that the time has come when Fitts
burg should provide accommodation for its
population, not alone in the matter of every
day accidents and sickness, hut also in cases
of maternity and lunacy. The latter he de
clares to be on the increase.
Mr. Elliot is emphatic in declaring that
the Legislature should donato additional
funds to the hospitals to enable them to pro
vide lor the needs of the people. He advo
cates a system of consular examination into
the case of every would-be emigrant, and
cays that the Federal Government should
take some such measure to prevent the
wholesale transportation of evil doers and
the decrepit from Europe to these shores.
He does not think a "Sheltering Arms," or
temporary lodging house for stranded stran
gers advisable, as it would tend to increase
the wandering and vagabond class.
"There is nothing more urgently needed
in this city than a city hospital," said Mr.
Elliot "Such an institution should he
within the control of the city, and all
accidents reported to tho police should be
brought there by police ambulances, in
stead of, as now, depending on the resources
of the other institutions. Pittsburg is
peculiarly a city from the nature of its
surroundings, the character of its popula
tion, because of its beiug a great railroad
center, and because of tho enormous number
of factories within it which has absolute
seed of a large city infirmary. Sudden
Occidents arc always liable to occur in a
city where so many peoplo are engaged at
dangerous work, as in the factories, on tho
railroads, and which contains so large a
foreign clement as does this city, aud the
Loipltt.li are all now so overcrowded that,
were any unforeseen accident, a fleeting mauy
pioplc, to unfortunately occur, it is certain
they could not be accommodated In tho
puhlio Institutions. To cuublo tho hospitals
to provide tho needed additional accommo
dation, iu tho meanwhile, tho Legislature
should be asked to appropriate u tuHlcicnt
sum. It is absolutely mcesiary that
the accommodation be found, for
tho hospitals are at prcscul crowded
to their utmost. 1 had thought of suggest
ing the foundation of a city hospital this
year. Bevcrul things have prevented mo
from doing so in the past. Tho city has
been in debt, shich is now beiug paid oil,
nnd within tho last four or five years 1'itU
burg has made quite a wonderful show.
"I think tho time has coino wheu the Idea
of a city hospital should be pushed. The
City Farm is no longer capable of receiving
the patients who are daily tent to it. Num
bers ol these only get there with greut diffi
culty and much danger to life. Ouly tho
other day we sent out a woman suffering
with asthma. She could not sit up in a
carriage, and had to be sent in an ambu
lance. The poor woman had to stand the
jolting over the eight miles ol rough road as
best she could, Instead of being conveyed iu
a few minutes to the city hospital. In
winter time matters are much worse, owing
to the condition ol the roads and the length
of the journey.
"We have, on an average, 420 people in
the Home, and generally about 90 people in
hospitals. All the bad cases which the
other hospitals will not keep are sent to us,
id of course we must lake them, because
e uniortunate patients must be cared lor
somewhere. Here, again, is thenecessity
for J city hospital, controlled and operated
by the city. There are certain classes of
disease which, out of regard for the public
.health, should receive immediate attention.
The hospitals will not entertain them, but
turn them over to us. The very name ot
City Farm is synonymous with 'workhouse,'
or 'prison,,' in the ears of a number of peo
ple, and it is impossible to say how many
cases of virulent disease are stalking abroad
to-day, because those afflicted with them,
degraded as tnev are. will not so to the
'Farm.' It does not require any lengthy J
argument to show the absolute necessity lor
a city hospital.
"I was one of a number of gentlemen,"
continued Mr. Elliot, "who made an effort
last year to obtain a larger appropriation lor
the hospitals lrom the Legislature. The
committee listened to our arguments, but
did nothing.
"I am clear, also, on the point that the
Legislature should do something for the in
creasing pauper lunatic element. The de
partment at the City Farm is allowed to keep
150, but in point ol fact there are 1G5 there
at present, though against the law. But
-(That can be done about it? Nothing, until
proper accommodation is provided for a
class that is rapidly increasing. The De
partment of Charities has 132 pauper
lunatics in Dizmont at a cost to the city of
1 75 per week, the State paying the de
ficiency. The city pays 10,000 a year for
its insane at Dixmont.
"The accommodation for lunatics is bad,
but it is equaled by the absence of any for
maternity patients. For such there is at
present but the uity larm, eignt miles lrom
the city, aud with limited provision for
cases which demand instaut care. Next to
a city hospital, thero is necessity for a ma
ternity institution. It might bo attached to
the hospital, but I should favor a distinct
"It insanity on the increase, Mr. El
liot?" "I should not like to positively say so,
but I think it 1). The lucreato In the popu
lation may nocount for the larger number of
lunatics now under detention, but 1 think
that intoxicating drinks have most to do
with insanity. 1 believe that 1)0 per cent of
lunacy U duo to intoxicating beverages.
Tho continued arrival on our shores of a
mixed foreign clement uiuy not bo without
effect on tho number of lunatics in our
midst. Wo ore continually receiving the
outcasts of other nation; thieves and
criminals of all clashes, ubandoncd women
aud girls nro shipped over here; the coun
try, in fact, Is becoming the repository for
the refuse of other nations, and yet nothing
is being done to stay this condition of
n Hairs. Of thoio who como nere tue oias,
Iluns, Poles and Italians nro the worst In
character, and make the worst citizens.
They make no wealth, but send home,
yearly, vast sums of money, which ore lost
to this country. Of all the immigrants the
Irish, Germau and Swiss make the best
"The Government," continued Mr.
Elliot, "shou'd find a means to stop this
flow of human refuse into the country, A
preventive measure could bo found in giv
ing consuls at ports of embarkation n stnfT
of employes whnio duty It would bo to In
quire Into tho olisruotor, antecedents nnd
ago of every Intending emigrant, The ox
nmlnatloii should bo rigid, and tho emi
grant only allowed to land hero on presen
tation of the Consul' permit. In this way,
paupers, linbeellrs, aged persons, thieve,
vagabonds generally and the depraved
would ho prevented from lauding on our
shores, and becoming lost In tho great ag
gregate of tho country pursue their depreda
tions or their career of crime, or fill our
pauper asylums, to the great detriment of
tho better classes. There Is a tax of CO
cents on every Immigrant that
lands in this country, but no one seems to
know what becomes of It. If it is collected,
this cltv is entitled to Its share of it for
those immigrants who come hero. The im
migration laws might also be remedied to
touch that large number of foreign workmen
who come here annually lor six or eight
months at three times higher wages than
they can earn at home, and then return with
their pockets filled, aim without contribut
ing a cent toward taxation or the sup
port ot the Government."
"Do vou iavor the idea of a 'Sheltering
"Will, I think not. I think such an In
stitution would only increase the vagabond
class by recognizing them in this manner.
There are very few of the wandering class
who cannot, if they wish, raise 10 cents to pay
lor a bed in the 'Home' on Duquesne way.
If you provide a recular resting place for
such people you will only attract to the city
a number of the class whom it would be bet
ter without."
A nircllns; to bo Held Next Wcclt Peti

Dinner Mar bo Tnken Up to tho Lesls
Inlurr. A meeting of the funeral directors of the
city will be held next week, when action
will be taken regarding the crusade that is
being made against the right of way for
funeral processions by the traction com
panies and others. The intention is to
formulate a petition aking for certain
privileges on the thoroughfares, which will
be presented to the City Council, and if the
requests are not granted, an appeal will be
made to the Legislature.
Mr. Fullerton, when seen yesterday after
noon, said: "It's simply outrageous tho way
wo are comDcllcd to pull out for the cablo cars,
and civo tbcm the right ot way As It Is at
present, wo have no rights at all. Ibe minute
tho cable boll rings we must turn out, no mat
ter where wo are. And thero Is no place on
Pcnnatcnuc. between tho city and Twenty
eighth street, for instance, whero wo can turn
out without having Iron wagons ot erery de
hcriptlon drive In and break up tho pro
cession. After that thero aro oppor
tunities for us to turn out, and we have always
done so. Wo have glvon tho cars preference
whenever It was possible, but wo aro getting
tired of It now. and pronon to mko a decided
stand In the matter, and fight for our rights.
At present the law Is all against us. but at our
mooting, which will bo held next week, wo will
discuss the matter fully, nnd see what can bo
done. Pending that wo cin glvo the cables

against us, by pulling out of their way Just ono
carrlaconta time, which will delay tlioui twlco

All of the undertakers aro willing to put up

Mr. Meyer, who day haforo yestordiy was

A Hither Limit to the Wholesnle Amonnt
Wunied Hands From Any Pnrt of the
Comity Desired by Homo of tho Itetall
Considerable Interest is being taken
among the liquor men, a to what now
measures may be introduced into (he next
session of the Legislature. Already some
of the brainiest among them are consider
ing how the Brooks law can be amended
In tho direction of drawing a tighter
line between the wholesale and retail
trade, and also as regards the exten
sion of the bond beyond its present limits.
Among the retail liquor dealers there does not
seem to be a unanimity of agreement as to the
operations of the license laws or as to the utility
of any organization seeking to effect any change
in them. While the men holding licenses are
content to let things be, tbey allege that the
only disaffection In the trade Is to be found
among those refused permission to sell. This
Is the substance of what: was gathered in con
versation with a number of the trade last eve
ning, bat the utterance of Matt Weiss regard
ing what the trade may do toward effecting an
an amendment to the existing law is prob
ably in tho line of the general sentiment.
When snoken to In this re epect that gentleman
'The retail dealers havo not yet taken action
or done anything more than outline what
measures they may take regarding the opera
tion of the Brooks law. I can ooly speak for
myself when I say that we may seek for an
amendment in the direction of extending the
present narrow limits of the bond to inclnde
the county. and limiting the sale
of liquor by wholesaler to five
gallons. We think it is reasonable that
a man should be allowed to And bond beyond
his own ward or district, and If wo succeed in
making five gallons the wholesaler's limit it
will have the effect of raising the status of tho
trade in general by driving out of it a nnmber
of so-called 'wholesalers' who are really retail
sellers, llegarding tho method of granting
licenses I do not think that the trade desires
anv change. I think It is satisfied with the
present system, and I believe it will be more so
when the Judges gain moro experience In the
granting of licenses. There has been some
talk of an Excise Board, bnt in my opinion the
trade would prefer the existing sj&tcm."
lie Say He Cannot Get the Legislation Bo
Would Liho.
Controller Morrow was yesterday asked what
be wanted In the way of new legislation. Uo
said he would like to see tho new Legislature
enact a law to enable him to cancel botwecn
$SU,O00and $100,000 worth of city bonds each
j car. Such a bill passed while Ilouert H. rat
tison was Qovcrnor and ho promptly vetoed it.
This was his first negativo action on the laws of
that session of the Legislature. The Controller
"Iwouldllkoa number of now laws but I
know 1 could not see my wish realized. If I
wanted a now law for tho city. If It was worth
talking about, nomnbody would stop In and try
to block my way. If no attempt was made to
kill tho measures then I know they would not
bu worth talking about. It Is peuanoo to ask
a man's opinion on now legislation In this kind
ot wealhtr.
"On April 1, 1SU3, uo will begin paring off the
first Installment ol (i'M.QOU worth of bonds.
The first Installment Willi bo fl2o.SU0, and tho
amounts will bo paid nut us soon as possible.

The Emomont or Central Station Now a
Oharabor of Horron.
A new department connected with the
bureau of police was created yesterday. It
was christened "the chamber ot horrors,"
and is located in the basement of the Central
police station. Lying upon the cold stones
in tho cellar last evening, with their toes, or
paws, pointed to the four winds of heaven,
were half a dozen or more deceased canines,
whoso spirits had boen wafted to tho dog
hereafter by the use of liberal potions of
strychnine. Outside the station house and
across in the alley of Marshall's faundry
was the body of another pup that had been
enticed into the place by bad detectives who
carried largo packages of "buttons" ior the
benefit ol the canines and the publlo in gen
eral. The order to kill all dogs found running
at large went out to the police officers yes
terday morning, hut the slaughter of the
innocents was not as great as was expected.
The officers were a little chary about giving
poison to the dogs, and tho work did not
renlly begin until the shades of night fell.
When the night police reported for duty
they were given a lecture about the methods
of killing dogs, nnd handed large bundles of
prepared "buttons" Captain TJnterbaum
gave out the instructions, which were not
intendod for tho reprcicutatlves of the press,
and when the latter mentioned anything
nbout "dog days," tho official raado some
observation about the weather bolng warm.
As each officer passed out of the station
be tucked nway somewhere in his clothes,
the nice, tempting hits ol bologna nnd roast
beef dosed with strychnine. It is expected
tho reports this morning will show a won
derful Increase in the canine mortality of
the city.
A report got abroad yesterday afternoon
that CO cents would be paid for each dog
caught on the streets and delivered at the
Centril station. At a result, Diamond
alley, alter S o'clock, looked like an ad
junct to a first-class stockyard. Nowsles
and gamins, big boys and little
boys, swarmed into the alley with
dogs of high anil low degree. Home of the
urchins had dogs tied with ropos, others car
riodthemln their arms, while pot a few had
the canines In boxes and baskuts. Ono crowd
appeared about B o'clock, with a dog seated In
n toy wagon drawn by six sober-faced "newsies."
Tho dog was of tho barber pnlo variety, nnd sat
In tho wagon as if he enjoyed the whole pro
ceeding. When ono of tbo detectives
cave lilm a "button," he gulped it down
with tho same alacrity that a high schoolgirl
takes a piece of chewing gum, and after wag
ging his tall looked around for more. The offl.
cers and crowd of peoplo gathered around to
see tho slaughter waited patiently for tbo dog
to koel over and fall out of the wagon. They
watted 6, 10, 15 minutes, but It was apparently
not that dog's evening to keel. He grew tired
waiting for another piece of 20-cent beef and
began to frisk about as if he had been weaned
on "buttons." Finally he saw another. dog of
his acquaintance and made a break away from
his captors. The animal was seen about tho
station house after supper looking none the
worse for his dose of medicine. A suggestion
was made to give hlra another "button," but
the experiment was considered too expensive.
The boys who brought the dogs clamored
long and loud for their 50 cents for each ani
mal, but nobody at the station bad been in
structed to pay this pittance for good dogs.
The urchins stood around bowling for their
money, and wero only chased away by officers
when threatened with arrest.
There seems to bo a misunderstanding abont
the fee for killing dogs. Tbo law says that offi
cers taking up. killing and burying them shall
tin mill An rents, but there Is nothimr said about
poisoning purps. Tho Mayor ii authorized to
pty tho money by warrant on tho City Treas
urer. Any person interfering with an officer in

Killed. Kach man acknowledged that ho had
killed from ono to 12, The man who clalmod
to havo killed 12 was proud of It, but was as
anxious as all the olhors that his
namo should not be mentioned. It
was estlniatod that of tho (17 patrolmen
in tho First district they would ovorage five
dogs killed by daylight this morning. Tho
cellar of Contral station bore tho appearance
of a dog morgue Six dogs, each of different
size, broed and oolor, aud none of them worth
the amount of poison It required to bill them,
wero laid nut still and very dead.
The Twelfth ward station reports at 10.30 last
night showed a record of 60 dead dogs. John
Kscherlck, who lives at Twenty-eighth and
Penn, poisoned a dog of bis own. As it showed
symptoms of rabies he attempted to drive It
into the back yard. Ibe dog Jumped and
caught bis finger In its mouth and (ben died.
Its jaws had to be pried open before the finger
could bo withdrawn and Dr. McOrcady cauter
ized the wound.
Tbo fallmaster had recolved notice of 115
dogs to be removed this morning. Extra wagons
will be put Into tbo service, aud It is expected
that fell the decoased animals will be removed
from the streots before noon.

A patrolman was strolling np Carson street
yesterday when a man accosted hlra and told
blra to sboot the unmuzzled dog following

the policeman. A good deal of sport was had
by the jokers saying they would shoot the dog
and demand their W cents, but the policeman
retorted by saying he would lodgo an informa
tion against them for shooting in the city
limits, and again continued his stroll, followed
by tho dog, while numberless poor curs passed
by with beads down and looking as if they felt
keenly the disgrace of wearing a muzzle.

Hundreds of dogs appearing on tho streets of

this is the fact that an ordinance is In existenco
in the city requiring that every dog going at

of September shall have securely pnt on a
good, strong, substantial ana safe muzzle.
Section 2 of the ordinance states that all dogs

Tbo Jtcqoeit to Pittsburg Morchcinta to
Closo Tbelr Stores To-Morrow
Local pride, stimulated by a spirit of en
terprise, has led the citizens of Allegheny to
put forth tbelr best efforts to make the occa
slon of their Beml-Oentennlal celebration to
morrow a grand success, that will inspire
feelings of patriotism in the hearts of young
and old, who number themselves among the
population of that fast-growing city. The
exercises arranged for the day are of a
loyal character, that will appeal to the
dearest emotion nnd holiest passion
common to the brotherhood of
earth. Preparations for the coming event
have been going on daily. Each individual
seems to vie with the other in making a
display that will excel in novelty and in
terest. Both toll houses on the Sixth street bridge
are expected to be decorated in magnificent
style. Work has already commenced on
the Allegheny end. A beautiful arch is in
process of construction. The skilled decora-,
tor, F. J. Snyder, in connection with Lud
wig & Richter, the florists, will arrango a
device of "Welcome. Allegheny, 1810-1890,"
In letters abont two feet long, formed of
lovely red, white and blue French imported
immortelles, with laurel used as a back
An elegant shield and three muskets, con
structed from the same flowers, will form the
center of tho heavy aroh. French cape
flowers will be used in building a handsome
pair 6f silverv scales, the emblem of justice,
while bunting, artistically arranged, will
complete the beautiful effect of the whole.
Floral decorations, flags, banners, mottoes,
and nlumes of pink, green, purple, red and all
colors will be employed in beautifying public
and private buildings to-morrow.
Tbo Police and Fire Departments'aro prepar
ing to mako a creditable showing. The Colum

It was decided that It would be Imposublo to

proud to take part In tho demonstration, thoy
would have to refuse.

A vote of thanks was given to Mrs. Husky and

on motion of John Gray, the wliolo matter was

Thero seems to be a big misunderstanding on
tho part of Mayor Wvman or somo other official
of Alleghony, In regard to the part Pittsburg Is
to take In tho dcmi-Centennlal. The demonstra
tion Is to tako place to-morrow, but as yet
Mayor Gourloy, of this city, has received no
official notification that an invitation nas neen
extended to tbo people on this sldo of the river
to participate. Yesterday afternoon tho fol
lowing letter was sent from Allegheny City
Hall, to Mayor Gourley, but owlnc to the let
ter's absence in tho country, bo did not get the

Hon. H. I. Oourloy, Major of the City or Pitts
burg: "Dear Snt At a meeting of the committee
on the celebration of the Heml-Centenmal of

quested to address a communication to you re

Yours sincerely,
"J. Q. WYMAN, Mayor."
Major Gourley returned home about 8 o'clock
last nvenin!- from a 14-mile drive to his farm In
the vicinity of Wildwood, and the first notice
he had of the letter was in a newspaper. He
bad been waiting for It for a week, but owing
to tho late hour, be could do nothing.
About 9 o'clock bo was telephoned by Will
lam P. Bennett, of the General Committee of
Arrangements, and asked if be would give
Mr. Bennett an audience. The Mayor
replied In the affirmative, and Mr.
Bonnett lost no lime getting over to Logan
street. He found Mayor Gourley, wtio asked
for an explanation of the delay If Pittsburg
was wanted is the demonstration. The Mayor
said as far as he knew not one Invitation had
been extended to a Pittsburg citizen to speak
at the demonstration. In view of this, the In
vitation to Pittsburg to participate, coming at
the last hour, looked a little strange, to say the
About ten days ago Mayor Gourley received
a communication from Mayor Wyman, asking
if be would acceDt a seat in the latter's car
riage. Mavor Gourley, thinking Pittsburg
would be officially recognized, replied In the
affirmative. On Wednesday last he received a
visit from Mr. Bennett, whosaid Mayor Wyman
would send Pittsburg an invitation. Mr. Ben
nett says Mayor Wyman received Instructions
to this effect, but through indiflerence did not
do bo. Mr. Bennett called at Mayor Wyman's
office four times but could not find him there.
He telephoned him three times more,
but could not communicate with blra. Mr.
Bennett grew desperate, and yesterday tele
phoned to Council Clerk Dilworth that if any
thing was to be dono about the Pittsburg In
vitation, tbo letter would havo to be sent to
Mayor Gourloy by 2 o'clock.
Mr. Dilworth wrote tho letter and took It to
Mayor Wyman's office for signature It was
signed and sent to Pittsburg, and Mayor Gour
loy will get It this morning. When tho Mayor
was asked by Mr. Bennett last evening, what
bo would do, ho said:
"I am placed In a ticklish position, and do
not taro about doing anything officially until I
confer with the business interests of Pittsburg.
I would like to know what tho morohants and
manufacturers hero think of tbo ruattor boforo
making tbo requestor them to closo their dif

Get Into Wllklnsbiira'.
The Dequeue Traction Company has been
troubled about getting its road into WilVIns
burg, and the matter has been discussed a good
deal In the borough for some weeks past. The
Pennsylvania Railroad tracks bar the way into
the borough, and It has been a question what
the traction oompany would do. A crossing at
grade is out of the question, and a bridge
would be cumbersome and awkward. The only
thing remaining Is to tunnel the tracks no
small lob when tho great width ot the Pennsyl
vania Railroad at Penn avenuo Is considered.
It has been generally understood that the bor
ough would havo to bear some portion of the
expense, and tbe only qnestton Is, bow
much. Mr. Charles II. McKee, attorney
for tbe Duquesne company, was present at the
last meeting of the Wilklnsbnrg Council and
stated the case in a clear and succlnot speech.
He said the Wilklnsbnrg branch of tbe Du
quesne Street Railway desired to bore a tun
nel under tbe Pennsylvania Railroad tracks at
Tonn avenue, and that they would like Coun
cil to appoint a committee to confer with the
Traction Company and the Pennsylvania Rail
road Company as to tbe best method of con
ducting tho work. Aftor some discussion, It
was decided to authorize tho burgess to ap
point such a committee. ,.
Mr. McKee said the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company would pay for the work directly
under its tracks. Council listened to tbe
reading of an ordmanco authorizing tho Du
quesne Company to change its route slightly
fn the Borough should tbe tunnel be made, but
it could not be acted upon until the result of
the conference Is known. It Is Intended to
build tbe tunnel so high that a load of bay can
pass through.
A Gang Now Going Through Grocery Stores
and Residences.
Tho gang of burglars that plied Its calling In
Wllkinsbure so persistently a fow months ago
is back again. On Monday nlgbt three houses
were visited the grocery store of S. P. Poor
baugb, on Franklin streot, where they got $20
out of the safe; the residence of William M.
Brlnkcr. near the station, from which they only
stolo a quautlty of provisions, and the grocery
of L. 8. Lease, on Rebecca street, where the
thieves went through tho stoek and tore things
up generally.
It is supposed that the miscreants are boys
living in or near Wilkinsbure, and tbo police
expect to make some arrests In tbe course of a
few days.

Tjrannj Orer Natlres.
E. J. Chlbai, a Cuban, Is In the city,
topping at the Hotel Behlosser. He Is
from Santiago, Cuba, and is In Pittsburg on
private business conneoted with the tobacco
trade. Though dark and swarthy and a
thoroughbred Cuban, he speaks pure En
glish, being a civil engineer and a graduate
of the Troy Polytechnic Institute. He is
anzlou s for the freedom of his country, and
in speaking of tbe matter, said:
"The United States can never buy Cuba.
She will only be freed from Spain by an in
ternal revolution or by an invasion from tbe
United States. Matters are growing serious
thereand within the next five years Cuba
will be torn from end to end by revolution.
Spam can never be induced to sell Cuba.
While Cuba is not a great source of revenue
to the King, it is a place where every Span
ish politician can place his fire
side, and the nobles can rid
themselves of importunate creditors
by securing for them soft places In the lslo ot
Cuba. This is the greatest objection Bpain
would bare to parting with that one of her col
onies. "In Cuba no Cuban can hold an office. All
are Spaniards, appointed by the King. Tbe
only offices within the reach ot tbe people are
the seats in tbe Legislature, and that body has
scarcely any powers. The Governor has the
unlimited power of veto and the legislative
body cannot pass a hill over his head. There
are threo parties there. They are the
Home Rulers, tho Bpanish and the An
nexation party. Tho Home Rulers are the old
families of tho Island, who advance the idea
ot home government by the people. Though
formerly strong, they are losing power. The
Spanish party or tbo Conservatives favor toe
present Gorernment. and the Annexation
party is for home rule by means of annexation
with the United States. Of late this party has
been growing wonderfully. It has drawn
heavily lrom the Home Rulers, who see the
hopelessness of ever expecting anything from
'Our only hope of freedom." Mr. Chlbas con
tinned, 'Is when our island is marked by a star
on tbe flag ot America. This party will soon
bo tho power In tho country, and the revolu
tion will follow. There Is a great feeling of
discontent, and half tbe Island now is ready for
revolution. An Internal war in Cuba Is not
many years off. Tho men are brave and
patriotio and. once started, will hold out for
years rather than again submit to Spain."

death of tho two miners who wero suffocated
In trying to rescuo the men In tbo Hill Farm
Tlio'Hqulrosajrs he does not care much how
