about fi ty "passengers, and after her
came the Olivette with 217 passengers,

Gtneral Lee boarded the Fern at
noon and lunched with Captain Cowies
to consult about the exodus. Not one
anti-American demonstration has been
made. The discipline was fine. There
haa been no evident increase in the
police force. A high wind blew in the
harbor and made embarkation in small
sailboats difficult. All of the steam
I lunches were taxed to their utmost I
General Lee ordered all Americin
ia hips to get out of the harbor ns quick?

The 400 American citizens there Con?
sul Cirker says, had neither a ship nor
money and that even if they had had a
steamer, there aro not five families that
have money enough to pay tho eleven
mile's railroad fard to seaport. Sagua
is the place where a massacre of Ameri
cans is feared if war breaks out.
The nows of the American Consals
leaving the;r posts spread rapidly
about th' eily and produced consid?
erable surprise. The matter was talked
ab--Ul generally; and the remark "well
let them go" was heard hore and there.

Senator Wolcott and Secretary Gage
can never be made to serve iu the same
mess, unless one of them can wipe out
some very positive opinions held con?
cerning the other.
Several members of Congress have
expressed their intention to resign in
order to do thou share of fight ing, the
Spaniaids, but Senator'-Billy" Mat-on
isn't one of them.
It is extremely doubtful whether
Spain ever expected to go as far as
ac ti'al fighting, as it is known thut a
number of the Spanish warships are
not in fighting condition.
By the way, did Spain ever lick in
any of the numerous wars she has en?
gaged in, since the conquest of tho
Mt ors? If so, the name of tbe licked
nation has escaped our memory.?*"
The time for talking is up; it is now
time to do a little fighting, monler to
diive the odious emblem of treachery,
otherwise known as the Spanish flag,
from the western hemisphere forever.
That Bloom in
, The Spring
At no other season are Pimples and Humors so
abundant or so annoying as in the Spring.
An unseasonably warm day, before change of win?
ter clothing, heats the blood, and these Pimples and
Humors itch and burn, and their annoyance, the suf?
fering they cause, is known only to those afflicted.
At no time is a blood purifying medicine more
effective than jus. before and during this season.
If your blood is not right (and whose is?) you are
liable to be one of these sufferers this Spring.
A course of Hood's Sarsaparilla begun now and
faithfully pursued will save you suffering and give you
rugged heeilth, so that you can thoroughly enjoy all
the pleasures of the coming summer.
Pimples on the Face.
"I have been troubled (or three
years with pimples on my (ace and

only temporary relief. I am now talk?

"I have been afflicted for many

the Cuban situation was sent to Con?

estimates from official Spanish sources, the

"From the standpoint of experience 1 do
not think it would bo wiso or prudent for
this government to recognize at the present
time tho independenco of the so-called Cuban
republic. Such recognition is not necessary
in order to enable the United States to inter?
vene and pacify the island. To commit this
country now to the recognition of any par
ticular government In Cuba might subject us
to embariassing conditions of international
obligation toward the organization so rccog
nlted. In case of intervention our conduct
would b_-subject to tho approval or disap?
proval of such government; we would be re?
quired to submit to its direction and to

functions of a separate nation, and havlng.as

relations and interests of the United States

the alternative forms of Intervention to end
the.war, either as an impartial neutral by
imposing a rational compromise between the
contestants, or as the active ally of tho one
party or the other."
MMMMJIMW OF IHK MAINE.
The President in alluding to the destruction
of the Maine says:
"Tho naval court of inquiry, which it ls
needless to say commands the unqualified
confidence of the government, was unani?
mous in Its conclusion that thc destruction of
tho Maine was caused by an exterior explosion
that of a submarine mine, lt did not ri...min?
to place tho responsibility. That remains to
be fixed, lu any event, tho destruction of
tho Maine, by whatever exterior cause, ls a
patent and Impressive proof of a state of
things in Cuba that is intolerable. That
condition is thus shown to be such that the
Spanish government cannot assure safety
and security to a vessel of tho American
navy in the harbor of Havana on a mission
of peace and rightfully there "
Ile refers to this act as corroborative ol
the picture ho has drawn of affairs in Cuba,
which shows thc inability of Spain to protect
a neutral vessel In tho harbor of Havana.
Tho President concludes his message as
In view of these facts of these consid?
erations, I ask the Congress toanthorlze and
empower the President to take'measures to
secure a full and final termination of hos?
tilities between tho government of Spain and
and the people of Cuba, and to secure in tho
Island tho establishment of a stable govern?
ment capable, of maintaining order and ob?
serving ItaJnternntlonal obligations,Insuring
poaco and tranquility and the security of Its
citizens as well os our own, and to use. the
militarjAnd naval forces of tho United States
as may be necessary for those purposos.
And in the Interest of humanity and to aid
in preserving the lives of the starving
people of the Island I recommend that tho
distribution of food and supplies be continued,
and that an appropriation bo mado out of
the public treasury to supplement the charity
'di our citizens.
