WASHINGTON, March St ? Durlnr
the consideration of the sundry civil bill
In the house to-day Mr. Adams (Rep.,
Penn.) took advantage of the latitude allowed
In debate to arouse the lrc of the
silver Republicans from the west by
bringing up the question of the current
reports about the Washington conference
between several silver Republicans
and several Philadelphia manufacturers
which was the subject of a formal meeting
of the manufacturers of that city
last night. He referred to the false and
unsteadying reports in the papers of the
alleged compact between the free silver
Republicans and the manufacturers by

the preat doctrine of protection.
Mr. Hartman (Rep., Mont) and Mr.
Allen (Rep.) both free silver men, replied
indignantly to Mr. Adams.
Mr. Hartman said he was glad of an
opportunity to say on the floor what
should have ben said several days ago.
He agreed that the reports printed
broadcast by the press regarding the socalled
Washington conference had been
falne and misleading. But the silver
men were In nowise responsible for these
false reports. The plain truth was thnt
some manufacturers of Philadelphia had
requested a conference. Their Invitation
had been accepted and twenty-eight
manufacturers had come over from
Philadelphia and a three-hour conference
was hau. The report of that meeting:
had ben prepared by Senators Mantle,
Carter, Cannon, DuBols and himself.
There was no suggestion of any agreement.
In fact It was distinctly stated
that no conclusion had been reached.
"But," said he, indignantly, "for the
purpose of breaking down and villifylng
the Republicans who had the hardihood
to stand up for silver, the gold press denounced
us. No more wilful falsehood
and slander was ever circulated in the
public press. They coined a lie and attempted
to force it down our throats."
Mr. Picklem, of South Dakota, also
made a statement concerning what he
said had heen a misrepresentation of
the Republican platform of his state,
which instead of making a specific declaration
on national Issues, had simply

FRANCE'S ASSUMPTION
Of Power lu Madagascar?What will the
UnitMl States Do !
WASHINGTON. D.- C.. March 31.?
While It cannot be learned that the
United States has yet joined with
Great Britain in representations to
France respecting the setting aside by
the latter of the treaties of commerce
and amity that have existed between
them and the Hova government of
Madagascar, It Is believed that the matter
Is rapidly assuming a phase that
will call for some action by our government.
Llko Great Britain, the United
States has a treaty with the Hova government
that guarantees to our citizens
privileges equal to those accorded
any .other nation. This means for
one thing that no greater duties shall
be imposed on goods imported into
Madagascar from the United States
than from any other country.
It is the purpose of the French government
to remove this equality and
reserve npeciut pnvncg>.n iwi > a?Hb?
merchant*, and Prance has notified our
state department that by virtue of this
assumption of control over the foreign
relations of Madagascar these treaties
shall fall. If Prance haa annexed Madagascar
or made It a French colony,
th*n our government must admit her
right to abrogate the treaties In this
fashion, but it la not certain that the
present anamolous status of the French
on the Island can be regarded bs sufficient
to warrant the assumption of
any such rights and It may be that before
our government will admit, thore
must be some much more explicit definition
of the exact scope of French authority
in Madagascar and a clear assumptlon
of the responsibility for the
fcovernmrnt of the Island. Our trade
with Madagascar 1b Quite large.

CONCORD, N. H., March IL?New
Hampshire Republicans held their state
convention here to-day and elected delegates
to the national Republican convention
at St. Louis. United States
Senator William E. Chandler presided.
But one ticket for delegates-at-large
was presented and this ticket was elected
by acclamation. The committee on
resolutions, through Its ohatrman, Hon.
Henry Putney, of Manchester, then reported,
There was a alight stir in the
even current of;the proceedings when
Col. Frank W. Rollns, of Concord, of

identical with that adopted by the Maaeachusetts
convention last week as an
amendment to the resolutions, but
Chairman Putney, Senator Galllnger
and others opposed the proposition and
the amendment was lost by an overwhelming
viva-voce vote.
The adoption of the platform as presented
by the committee was made
unanimous.
Adjournment followed the adoption of
the platform.
The platform opens with a congratulation
to the country upon the near approach
of an opportunity for release
from Democratic misrule. "To the end,"
It continues, "that this great deliverance
may be fully accomplished and our nation
may be restored to the honor, the
glory and the material prosperity to
which it attained under Republican policy,
we demand of the national convention,
soon to assemble at St. Louis, the
nomination of candidates whose election
will mean the speedy repeal of the
Infamous and ruinous Democratic tariff
and the substitution therefor of one
based upon the principles of the McKlnley
act; the enactment of currency laws
that will provide a circulating medium
In gold, silver jind paper, which will always
be interchangeable at Its face

the gold dollar; liberal appropriation!

veterans; a foreign policy characterised
by sturdy Americanism. Including the
assertion of the Monroe doctrine and the
moral and material support of the Cuban
patriots If they have not already
achieved their Independence, and an Immediate

which the Republican party has so successfully

it lias demonstrated its ability to apply
those principles In the administration of
the government.
'"Wo recognise as most conspicuous
among such candidates New England's
noble and illustrious son, the Hon.
Thomas B. Heed, of Maine, and that
pure and able statesman and champion
of protection, the Hon. William McKlnley,
of Ohio.
"We will rive the electoral vote of
New Hampshire to any nominee who
worthily represents the party, but we
prefer one of these, because either Is In
himself a platform."

PITTSBURGH, Pa., March SL-Thf
twelve Republican conventions held today
in Alegheny county to elect national
and state delegates, were the liveliest

It was understood that votes casl
for the party termed the "combine"
should express the preference for McKlriley
for President, and the opposition
for Quay. In the Eighth .legislative district
the Quay I tea bolted and held a separate
convention, which will result In
two sets of delegates to the state convention.
In nearly every convention
resolutions were Introduced denouncing
Senator J. Donald Cameron for his fret
stlvra proclivities and pledging the delegates
to the state convention to vote
and work against his nomination as 8
delegate-at-large to the national convention.
The result of the day Is as follows:
National delegates ? Twenty-second
congressional district, C. L. Magee and
Wlllam FHnn (McKinley); Twenty*
third district. Col. W. A. Stone and Robert
McAfee (Quay). .
A special convention of the Twentysecond

HAVANA, March 3L?Never In modern
times hojs there been a more slck?? ??
unontoulo than thni which tO-daV
attended the public execution of five
Cubans. The men had been condemn- |
ed to death by the garrote as "murderers,
violaters and incendiaries." Troops
were drawn up in a hollow square, and
in the middle were placed the chair
and post. Kuix, the public executioner,
had deputized an assistant to conduct
the attain '-".j ;
The condemned men, having received
the offices of the church, were brought
into the square to meet their fate. One
of them had confessed his guilt and affirms
the innocence of all the others,
who also protested that they were guilt- ;
less. The first inan to die took his seat
in the chair calmly; the iron collar was
fixed about his neck and the cap drawn
over his face. Then the executioner
undertook to apply the screw, but was
so excited that his hand slipped repeatedly,
with the result that the victim
died by slow strangulation, emitting
the while most distressing crica.
The sccond execution was accomplished
with even more distressing
awkwardness and delay, the executioner
being almost on the verge of collapse
as he performed his horrlbje function.
The protests of the officers and
priests forced Ruiz to undertake the
third execution, bijt he did little better
than his assistant had done. The fourth
victim of bungling garroters was likewise
tortured and then Rulx literally

to put to death the fifth of the Cubans,
who escaped none of the agonizing experiences
that had attended the execution
of his fellows.
The whole affair has left upon those
who witnessed it and upon those to
whom It h'as been described a feeling ;
of the utmost horror.
It is again reported that General Gomez
Is dead. Humors of this nature
have been persistently circulated time
after time and this latest report Is not
believed here.
Near Jaguey, Chico, the Insurgents
have hanged a prominent Inhabitant
named Enslblo Almeyda.
Colonel Pavia has been engaged with
an insurgent band under Lacret and
Collazo at the Cantabra plantation pro,.
vlnce of Matanzas. The Insurgents lost
fifteen killed and derailed and destroy,
ed an'exploring engine after its escort
had retired.
Colonel Palencia has been twice engaged
with the insurgents at Manicaragua,
province of Santa Clara. The enemy
lost six killed and the troops cap
tured a quantity of'Ammunition and
medicine.
, Sixteen prisoners have arrived here
under escort. They include the Insurgent
leader Manuel Linares, who was
1' captured by the Wadras battalion In
the province of Pinar del Rio.
The insurgents have burned eight
houses and a church belonging- to the
village of Guanabo, near Guanabacoa,
which is not far from this city.
The Wadras battalion has had several
sklrmlflhes with the insurgents in the
province of Pinar del Rio and has killed

latlons to the congregation and to Reotor
Spurr for the great achievement
attained In the founding of such an
Institution; to the contributors for the
Judicious expenditure of their gifts
and donations; to the diocese, clergy
and laylty for Its addition to the general
church, and he expressed the hope
that it shall serve as an object lesson
to the attendants at the next annual
. council, which will be held In Moundsville
In two months, resulting in the
building up of like additions to the
! many churches which they represent.
He then dedicated the building* reoognixlng
the inspiration which prompt<wf
It a frttinrilnir? th? SMl Which hOS OC
oompanled its creotton; the liberality
; which haa been extended; the efforts
and prayers offered for Its spocess and
Its future possibilities, whereupon he
bestowed the blessings of God upon it
After the singing of another hymn
Rector Spurr responded, speaking of
i the inspiration which led him to tlie
i establishng of the institute. It is the
demand of the church, and he saw it
even before he had known of Moundsville.
He said, "The primary idea of the in;
stitute is to get those who are out of
the bounds of any church drawn away
from the doggeries, where sin prevails,
into more cheerful and happy surroundings."
Dwelling further upon Its
: mission and its opportunities for good,
i he concluded by stating that a debt
; amounting to 12.000 waa tslll upon them
and asktd for its liquidation. The Hi;
sponse to this call was very encour[
nrinnr. but the exact amount could not
! be learned. A closing hymn was sung
i and prayer offered.
In tlio erection and perfect completion
of the building has been expended
I the sum of no,000, and It stands u a
grand monument to the energy and
i forethought of Kectof Spurr, lt?
i founder. ? ,

The alms aud objects of the society Vj/ J

' that it being evident, from a steady tira
.decline of a proper celebration of the .vj
national holidays of the United States,
that popular concern in the events and >.1
men of the war of the Revolution is
gradually declining, and that snch lack .
r>r IkigvMtji Attributable. not so much _
to the lapse of time and the rapidly
Increasing flood of immigration from -Jf
foreign countries, as to the neglect on $
the part of descendants of Revolution- ^
ary heroes to perform their duty in q
keeping before the public mind the '
memory of the servlcos of their anccs- ."is
tors and of the times In which they: .
lived; therefore the Society of the Sons ;tj
of Revolution has been lnstitued to
perpetuate the memory of the men. / ;$
who, in the military, naval and dvll
servloe of the Colonies and of the Con- ;.3s
tlnental Congress, by their acts or
counsel, achieved the independence, of a
the country and to further the proper
celebration of the anniversaries of tha ~ vgm
birthday of Washington, and of prominent
events connected with the war of ' ^
the Revolution; to collect and seoure ^
for preservation the rolls, records and . ^
other documents relating to that period;
to Inspire the members of the >?3
