"The feeling here is that the attitude

correspondence dated Manila, Oc- J
tober 8:
The health of the troops here at
present is far from being good, notwithstanding
the statements of the
medical department to the contrary. At
Cavlte the conditions are very bad.
There have been forty deaths there
since September 1, mostly from typhoid
fever. One-third of the officers of the
Montana volunteer regiment are on the
hick list, including the colonel and the
lleutennnt colonel, who are unfit for
duty. In one battery alone over 75 per
cent of the men stationed there, have
<'-n 'it the sick list within a month,
the officers being1 affected as well as
privates. The hospital accommodations
ihoro are inadequate. The supply of
medicines ivas exhausted at one time
and for days there was nothing medicinally
to administer to the patients.
The place is unhealthy at best. The
men are quartered on ground floors
where it is damp, and this In this counI

Baron de Courcel, the

was absent from Lord Salisbury's

The special dispatches from Paris this
arnlng repeat the semi-official state?nt
that the evacuation of Fashoda is
cepted in principle, but that other
Ltions In the Bahr-El-Ghazal region

Various rumors are afloat as to AbrInlan

ports of a settlement of the Fashoda

"The matter Is substantially in the

itlcipated that France will take furer
action until Major Mnrchand's ariral
at Calr?? on Thursday, when ex- I

A Frenchman has been arrested at

Maso, ot die provisional Cuban govern- - w
ment, hu cabled from Santa Cms dtf
Sur to Senor Queseda, aecretair. of tin -'J
Cuban delegation, saying:
"Assembly has not yet met, owls* to
the absence of quorum."
This was called out by an inquiry
from Senor Queseda aa to reports cony- ???
Ins by way of Santiago, representing ;S|I
the Cuban assembly as In session M 3

questions relating to the futurs
of the Uland-^e disarmament of the '
Cuban army and the extent of co-opera- . -?8
tlon between the former Insurgent forces
and the United States author! tlss. It
had "been stated that the assembly organised
by choosing' General Garcia as
presiding officer, thus Indicating that the
military wing under Garcia would doml- -i
nste the assmbly. 8
Senor Quesada was considerably sur- ?
prised at these reports, as he was likely
to be notified of the convening ot the
Cuban assembly, particularly as lis has
been elected a member of the assembly.
representing one of the districts of the
Important province of Puerto Prlnolpe,
He accordingly telegraphed President
Maso for Information and the foregoing ,.'K
answer was received.
There are evidences that President
McKlnley and his cabinet have assurances
that the action of the Cuban provisional
government will not be antag- ,25
wlntlc to the policy at Washington, but 3
rather In sympathy with the execution . ' $
of that policy. Senor Queseda Is satisfled
that this will be the course of the
Cuban assembly when It begins work,
sud It Is probable that he made this
view known during a recent Interview
with Secretary Hay at the state depart- -jfi
ment. In the event of his leaving

and of overcoming frictions which may J

Speaking of the Cuban assembly, Senor
Queseda 6aid: "It is only the flrrt

the present President Maso has called .'l3

however, not a military assembly, only ;';i]

hardly expected that the question of an- rj

assume large proportions for the pres- ;j
