duty being his participation in the recent
war with Dewey.
Apropos of Dewey and West Virginia
in an interesting communication hi the
Intelligencer from the New York Journal.
it was learned that the daughter of
cx-Senator Henry G. Davis. now Mrs.
Arthur Lee, of Virginia, and just returned
from a wedding trip around the
world, was appointed by Dewey as his
ambassadress to President McKlnley,
and this has revived a pretty little story
in the most exclusive circles of Richmond's
"F. F. V." While engaged to
.Miss Davis, whom Mr. .Lee ipet under
romantic circumstances, .Mr. Lee had
the mischance to lose his fortune?not

down and wrote to his fiancee. explaining
what had happened, and saying
that, under the circumstances, he, of
course, would not hold her to the engagement.
Whether he had primed his
pistol or laid in a stock of poison does
not matter. The young lady dutifully
and tearfully took the heart-broken
missive and showed It to her father.
He read it through carefully. "Don't
you worry," he told his daughter: "you
write to that fool young man," he went
on. with characteristic bluntness, "and
tell him I've got,enough for you and
myself, toe." The letter was written
and mailt J before the ink was dry, and
the marriage came off last fall in great
style. Mr. Davis gave the bridegroom
a check for $100,000 the morning of the;
wedding day.
Informal war talks will be given to
young men at the Young Men's Christian
Association building on Monday

A party of excursionists from Xew
Castle". Pa., were in Pittsburgh yesterday,
anil last night left in a private car
for a trip to the City of Mexico and
Southern California. The party was
composed of J. A. Crawford and wife,
jr. M. Crawford. C. E. Crawford. L. S.
Tovt, A. C. Hoyt, Misses May E. and
Susanna Hoyt, Mrs. J.. C. "Westlake,
Mrs. H. Irwin, Dr. It. A. "Wallace, Robert
If. Cunningham. J. P. II. Cunningham
and wife.?Yesterday's Pittsburgh
Times. Miss Jennie Bailey, of this city,
will join the party at Cincinnati and
expects to be absent for about two
months.
The return of Ensign John S. Doddridge
from Manila, where he served under
Dewey on the cruiser Boston, was
ati event of the week in social circles.
The ensign remains here on waiting
orders an indefinite period. While passing
through Chicago he was interviewed
and Is reported to have said: "I
have been out on the China station
for three years and nine months, and
you can imagine that It seems good
to be back here. It is needless for me
to say that all of Admiral Dewey's
men are devoted to him.* Me is a man
who tolerates no opposition and he has
done bis work v.-oil out there. I think
that If this trouble had not occurred
he would have been back home within
a month, as his health has been affected
by the long strain that he has been
under. I do not think that he will come
uacK soon now, though, as he will wait
to see the end of the trouble. Ills action
the other day in placing the Olyrnpla
between the Orman warship Irene
and the shore during the land fighting
was characteristic. f the man. When
our ships executed the much-talked-of
maneuvre of drawing off for breakfast
in the midst of the bat fie of May J, I
think our officers knew pretty well that
we had the Spanish fleet whipped. Several
of the Spanish ships were already
on fire, and as we drew off we saw the
flames shooting up and heard heavy
explosions. I suppose* that Admiral
Dewey wanted to learn how much ammunition
had been expended, but I do
not think that th<-re was an actual
shortage of ammunition."
The war scenes exhibited at the farroll
Club auditorium last night were in
many respects wonderful. The departure
of the ill-fated battleship Maine
for Havana harbor was very realistic,
as were the other naval nmm-n
lug the destruction.of Cervera's lieut,
the storming of Matanzas, 11??* sinking
of the Spanish ships, the pulling dov/n
of the Spanish Hag anil the'holsUng of
"Old Glory." The line picture of Dewey
thrown on the canvu:-* elicited great applause.
Many beautiful scenes In the
Gem of the Antilles were shown. The
cavalry charge was very realistic, an
were th" marching of the boys In blue,
the ^Sr!:?' brigade and many other views.

Special Correspondence of IntclIlgcncer.
HAVANA, Cuba, Feb. 2.?In a little
street in the eastern part 6C Havana
is a vehicle stored away from the public
ni-n A *?...?
..v. ....... *chiciu Liiui c-urrieu in us
richly upholstered seats the royal family
of Spain, but destftied now to be carried
to the states, the property of an
energetic American, who will either
exhibit it, In the principal cities of the
north, or sell it to some enterprising
museum manager.
Pursuing their unfailing system of
making hay while the sun shone, and
turning everything Into gold before
departing for their home, across
the seas, Captain General Castollanos,
the last Spanish oflicer to represent the
Castlllan government, as the commanding
otllecr of Cuba, offered for sale the
magnificent carriage that has been In
use in Havana for state occasions, and
*.vas presented to Count de Hlela, then
captain general of Cuba, by the crown
of Spain, in the seventeenth century.
This handsome carriage, now stored
beneath a common canvas cover, must
feel its humiliation In its new and
j strange home, so different from the
sumptuous quarters occupied by It In
the royal stables for six generations.
The running gear is of a bright red,
the upholstering is the most expensivethat
could be manufactured by the
skilled artisans of the old world, and
the costly trimmings of gold, with the
I coat of arms of Spain upon its sides,
[ give it an appearance of richness which
j its cost of $0,000 entitles it to.
! The driver's seat is a gorgeous affair,
and amply large enough to hold four
men. and upon the rear is room for four
I lackeys to stand. Despite Its great
i age It Is still in excellent repair. As I
! have said before, everything n Cuba is
I built for the passing of centuries. The
! last time it was seen in Cuba in public,
j the last time it will ever be seen in
Cuba, was at the opening of the supreme
court, last April, when Governor
General Blanco had the dstlnctlon of
I rldintr i"- it ilnwn tho Prmln Tlio nvne.
! int owner. Mr. Israel, or New York, I
| also bought the expensive and elabor- j
I a.tely mounted harness and ilie gay unl- ,
j forms of the coachmen and lackeys.
With the single exception of the carriage
which is owned by Alphonse, the
j boy king of Spain, no like vehicle exists
in'the world, and this coach is one of the J
most interesting and valuable relics of
j Spanish sovereignty on the western
continent.
I To mark the child-like love of play
and of display to be foTind in the Cuban
nature, as well as the Inborn patriotism.
I and love of hero, living or dead. I have
: but to dwell for a moment upon the
I street scenes in Havana last Sunday. It
1 was the anniversary of the birth of
' Marti, the patriot and general, who was
j killed early in the war. But the passi
Jng of events has not served to wash
j away his memory or to grow moss upon
! his tomb.
j On Sunday afternoon, at 1 o'clock,
there formed on the Prado a monster
j procession of twenty thousand people,
; all In varied uniforms of orders and
j dubs. It contained hundreds of girls,
i who. notwithstanding the light rain
which fell most inopportunely, walked
all through the parade, clad in garments
of gossamer texture, llutterlng
ribbons and French slippers. Hundreds
j of costly painted satin banners were
I carried. Intorsnors^d with numormm
| silken Cuban llags, and an occasional
; American Mas of cotton. Numbers of
I pretty girls were dressed as "Cuba
Libre," and were drawn upon chariots.
! Preceding the procession, a howling
mob of boys cleared th?? streets by
compelling all tin? hack drivers to give
the inarching clubs a free path. Among
the organizations participating were
Cuban soldiers, medical societies, law
societies, cigar makers, children's
schools, and firemen, in gay uniforms,
which are never defiled, because there
are no fires. Tlv* procession marched
through all tie* principal streets of the
city, to the birth-place of Marti, on
Paula street, where impressive ceremonies
\%ore held, and the marble slab
was unveiled, containing the following
Inscription:

(Jan you picture to your mind's eye a

freshest ribbons upon the altar of memory
to 'General (Irant? Does any one
play martial music or burn powder and
patriotism to mark the natal day of a

upon what date that natal day may

Does not the very name or senorita call
up a vision of timid eyes, half concealed
by a f all black I nee? Does
not every tender ballad or impassioned
romance of Kspanu weave Its rhyme

life and death, around the central Jigtire
of a high-back comb and the fall of
the graceful mantilla? This, also, is a
dream. It Is true, the national costume
still exists, but in Cuba, as In
Japan, and in Italy, and in Russia, it is
relegated to the peasants. It Is either
a mark of servitude or of years. If

As I write, I have before me the letter
of a well known and prominent citizen
of Went Virginia, who desires tno to answer
a few practical questions. Thinking
they may Interest some other renders
of the IntelllKeneer, 1 have decided
to answer them through the columns
of that valuable paper.
First?What would pay best to take to
Havana? Fann Implements decidedly.
Ploughing Is done on tho Island with
the crooked stick used by the revered
patriarchs, and after the surface of the
ground Is stirred In this way, men walk
over it, and smooth it with a hoe: then
it is considered to be ready for the
planting. Picture to your mind's eye the
harvests that could be gathered from
this soil If properly cultivated. #
Second?What would mules bring?
The Mexican mule Is used here exclusively.
It Is small, compactly built and
very strong.
Third?What Is the price of horses?
The price varies from $15i? to $700. The
American horse used here for pleasure
by the rich Havanese, Ik always a superb
animal. Something to give one a
thrill of pride.
Fourth?What Is the price of lumber?
American lumber is not desirable
for this market. It is dlllicult to'
turn a Cubfin aside from the rut In
which he ha t traveled, and they have
beeti accustomed to buy lumber, always.
In lengths of from twenty to
thirty feet.
Fifth?What Is tho price of cows?
About double the price they sell for at
hdme.
Sixth?What Is the price of potatoes?
Two dollars per hundred pounds.
Seventh?How about American wagons?
I think American wagons would
not 11 nd a ready market. A large number
of the streets in Havana are too
' narrow to permit of turning an American
wagon. The wagons here are all
short, and many heavy carts are used.
The duty on horses and cows is live
dollars per head, on wagons and farming
implement^ forty per cent ad
valorem.
Eighth?Are there many Americans
there? Yes, a great many.
Ninth?In what business? Principally
stork business (live stock), hotel anil
restaurant and brokerage In merchandise.
Tenth?What Is the postage on a lettter,
to and from the states? Five
cents.
Eleventh?What is the fare from
Tampa to Havana? Twenty-two dollars.
Sunday, January -'J, marked an epoch.
Upon that day was conducted the first
service of the Episcopal church. In English,
ever held In Havana. There has
been for some time an Episcopal chapel
nere, but it Is out In the precinct of
Jesus del Monte, and tlie service is in
Spanish. We had the very great pleasure
of attending: the service on Sunday
morning, which was held in a little, improvised
chapel, opening off the Grand
Plaza, and was conducted by the Rev.
Dr. NeilHon. who represents the Society
of American Missions here, and who Is
well known to many people in Wheeling
and In West Virginia. Sunday, in
Havana, is precisely like Monday, or
any other day. All business houses,
particularly in the retail portion, are
open as usual, and the noise of the
street trallic, (and this is the noisiest
city ii) the worl'd), makes the efforts of
the clergyman to make himself heard
one of discomfort, if not?of pain. In
fact, on Sunday, the city seems more
restless. It is a gala day. It is a day
to put on your bravest attire and gayest
manner, but a day that, seemingly, is
without religious significance or import.
The vast cathedrals, with gorgeous
paintings, mellow windows, gilded altars
and wondrous vestments, contain
but an occasional worshipper, who
kneels upon the cold marble of the floor,
and sends up murmuring prayers, that
I scarcely make a ripple upon the sacred
silence, while outside a great mob of
hundreds will be pressing forward to
i see the street dances that are given here
! in different national costumes, or to
: hear the band play, or perhaps to throw
