The war depart ment has also received the following dispatch from Gen. Otis: "It's reported that at Zamboanga insur gents attacked Spanish troops on the 11th Inst., iMing qniekfiring guns ana arms captured from Spanish gunboats. Spanish general and two officers wounded. Few casualties among iroops, Spanish gnrrison now besieged. Water supplv cut off and troops calling foi relief." Manila, May 15. The civilian mem bers of the United States Philippine commission are favorable to the meet ing with a Filipino commission which was suggested Saturday on behalf of Aguinuldo, by Lieut. Reyes, of the staff of Gen. Del Pilar, who came to Gen. Laiwton under a flag of truce, bearing the proposal. It. Is thought by the American commissioners that the idea may have resulted from a recent meeting of the so-called Philip pine congress at San Isidro. Infinite information on this point, however, cannot be obtained, though the local Filipino commission which is in close communication with the leaders of the rebellion, is doing its utmost to secure peace. Ten members of Gen. Lawton's band of scouts, under W. M. Young, the old Indian fighter, entered the town of San Mtiguel, about 15 miles north of Xorza gary, not aware of what place it was. They found 200 Filipinos there, 'out the rebels, taking the scouts for the ad vance of Lawton's army, fled after fir ing a few shots. The uniform quiet now prevailing in Manila lias led the authorities to relax the rule under which the city streets were cleared from 7 to 8:30 p. m., and last evening there was a large and bril liant usspmhly of pedestrians and peo ple in carriages to listen to a band con crt on the Luneta.

The state de partment has been informally advised 'that claims aggregating a considerable imount have been made bv llritisn French and German residents In Cuba during the ncent insurrection, and that these uiillimately will lie pressed mgaSnst the. United States gov ernment. The claims have not yet been presented, but are being collected by the several foreign offices ns the claimants send them in. In some eases schedules have l?en made, nnd the aggregate stated to the authorities here. The French claims aggregate between 12.000.000 and 15,000,000 francs. Tlw German claims are understood to be slightly under those of the French, while the British claims are said to lie considerably more than either the Frenuh or German. These foreign claims are quite dis tinct from those of citizens of the Uni ted States, originally against Spain, for damages sustained in Cuba during the insurrection. The peace treaty pro vided for these American claimants, releasing Spain and sitating that the United States would limke such settle ment ns was proper. Under this clause claims aggregating several million dol lars have been filed, Xo provision was made by the treaty for foreign claim ants, and there appears to lie much doubt as to who is liable since the sovereignty over Cuba has passed out of the hands of Spain. It is stated at one of the foreign es tablishments that there is no disposi tion to push the claims unduly, but to bring them to the a Mention of the Uni ted Stales government in order that the question of liability might be de termined and such relief granted as the merits of the ease warranted. It Is appreciated in these foreign quarters that payments will be largely a matter of discretion with the United States, as the obligation to look after the Ameri can clainwints was assumed voluntarily nnd there is no obligation, either In the treaty or on general principles of law for assuming the claims growing out of Spain's inability to maintain order in Cuba during the period of Spanish, rule. These foreign claims cover damages to plantations, personal property, etc., of French, liritish and German resi. dents of Cuba, and are not connected with the bonded debt of Culia in foreign hands, which debt was assumed by Spain.

PARTIALLY SETTLED. tribe of Grain Sltovelera at BaaTal) Is Ended, bat Coal and Ora Handlers are Out, Buffalo, May 15. The groin shorelert wllj return o work this morning under the1 agreement reached at 1 o'clock Sun day morning at the conference between the take carriers, elevator men and grain shorelers, . The terms of the agreement were reduced to writing and properly signed tt the residence of Bishop Qulgley. ' . ' . The agreement provides that tht grain shovelers shall, receive $1.85 pei thousand bushels; that the contractor shall not receive high man's pay; that a superintendent shall be appointed by thebishop to guard he interests of th men; that a local board of arbitrator shall be appointed to pass upon any grievances which may arise in the fu ture and that It of Contractor Con. nor's boss scoopers shall be suspended pending an investigation into tba charges made by the grain shovelers that they are identified with saloon in terests or otherwise pbjectionoble. At a meeting of the grain shovelers held last night the agreement reached at the conference was approved. Many of the men, however, are dissatisfied. They wanted a complete nibbrogation ofthe contract and were especially de sirous that Mr. Connors should hav nothing at all to do with the appoint, ment of the boss scoopers. Notwithstanding the adjustment ol the grain shoveling trouble, the labot situation here, so far as the commercial interests of the port are concerned, ii threatening. The tie-up of the coal and ore docks is said to be quite a serious as the grain shovelers' strike, Practically all the coal and ore hand lers, numbering about 1,500 men, am out. The freight handlers who struck out of sympathy for the grain shovel ers now refuse to go liaek until theii wages are raised from 25 to 35 cents an hour. The bouse men employed in the freight houses are on strike and they refuse to return until they have secured an advance in pay. With tha exception of the elevators, therefore, nearly everything on the docks wiH bt tied up for some time to come. WITH GREAT. HONORS. F.uropeau Navlea Will Greet Dewey on Ills Homeward Voyage. Washington, May 13. Admiral Dew ey's home-coming by way of the Med. Herrnnean is likely to give occasion for distinguished honors from the naviet of Kurope, most of them being repre sented by extensive squadrons in those waters, nnd some of them having their chief naval stations at Mediterranean ports. Ambassador Cninbon. of France, has called the attention of the authori ties at Paris to the return of Admiral Dewey by way of the Mediterranean, and the probable sailing of his flagship Olympia past the Frencii naval ports in Algiers. These are opposite the lirit ish possessions of Gibraltar nnd Malta, at the entrance to the Mediterranean, and are easy and natural stopping places along that route. It is hardlj expected that the Admiral will touch at Toulon, the great naval depot ol France. At the ports of Algiers he will be accorded every honor, aue not only to his high rank but to the uni versal esteem in which he is held by the naval fraternity. The British authorities have taken DO steps thus far to'lVave 'ifhe admiral stop at British ports, but it was stated yesterday by one of the British officials that Dewey would be Assured a most enthusiastic greeting if he stopped a, any British station, and that undoubt edly steps. would be taken to indue him to touch at Plymouth and Ports mouth, the southern naval depots ol Lngland. A RIOT IN PITTSBURG. Hundreds or Polea Try to Lynch a Moa tornian and Conductor. Fittsburg, May 15. Penn avenue and Twenty-second street was the seem yesterday of a riot which threatened for n time to result disastrously, but fortunately no fatalities followed. A traction car coming along the avenue struck and horribly mangled Katie Three, a Polish child 3 years of age. While the dead body was being takei from under the car, a crowd of severa, hundred, principally Poles, gathered nnd became so incensed at the sight thnt they attackeil the motorman and conductor with the intention of lynch ing them. By this time the patro! wagon arrived nnd one of the ofliceri jumped into the cab with the motor man nnd succeeded in getting the cai nnd occupants out of danger. Michael liigge, the only policeman left with the mob, was then pounced upon nnd badly beaten. He succeed ed, however, iu holding on to one of the ringleaders until a squad of reserves came to his relief. When the ofliceri attempted to put the arrested man into the wagon the mob made a dash to res cue him nnd a desperate, battle fol lowed, lasting half an hour, uy which time reinforcements arrived nnd the rioters were dispersed, many of them being much the worse for the rough Usage the policemen gave them.

GOLDFINCHES DC VERMOlfL , aeeeaa Haa Been Achieved In latra-. daclae Tbls Sana; Bird Into I Ike Slate. 2 Within a few years Vermont may hail the spread of a, new songster-r-a gor geous little bird, with plumage of crim son, yellow and black. The few that are now seen in the heme park and along the shores of the lake do not wan der far from their adopted home, but they are the admiration of all who catch a glimpse of them, or hear their sweet songs. This is the English goldfinch, which was first introduced in this state in 1307, and scores of which now add to the melody of the Shelburne park and adjoining wood feathered choirs. Everyone calls to mind the extraor dinary innnnei In which the trucculent English sparrow multiplied in New England and the country at large, until there remains not a nook or corner for him to invade froia the Green moun tains to the Bio Grande, and one sister commonwealth is endeavoring to legis late him out of existence. It is to bo hoped that the goldfinch will increase in like manner for the latest importa tion from England Is not only a hand some bird, but harmless. The immigrant finches came from Kent and Surrey the same point from whence those came In Central park they were taken in nets from the fields. Early in the spring of J897 they were let loose a score or more in Shel burne Farm park. They quickly accus tomed themselves to their new sur roundings and set about nest building. In October they suddenly disappeared, but this the superintendent hud ex pected. It has always been the custom of the English goldfinch to go south at the first approach of winter, and the superintendent Biipposes that his little British bird colony betook themselves to Florida, Louisiana and Texas in order to escupe from wintry frosts. Promptly at the approach of the spriirg in 1S9S the park guardian be gan to watch for their return. One day in March, wille strolling through the home park, he heard a familiar sonr, nnd on looking up caught sight of two goldfinches carrying material for their nest. His favorite birds had returned. The goldfinch is about six inches in U-ngth. nnd has a sharp-pointed conical bill. Fruit-bearii'g trevs in the coun try nre commonly selected by tlie gold finches for their nests, which nre neat ly constructed and curefully lined with the finest down. Altogether the newcomer is a pleas ant importation, nnd it is to be hoped that he will spread over the country as rapidly as did the less welcome spar row. X. Y. Times. HAWAIIAN HISTORY. Prof. Elllaon'a View of Some Recent Events In the I'ncltlc Islands. The history of the Hawaiian islands immediately preceding the establish ment of the Hawaiian republic is too recent not to be reasonably well known. The reign of Kalakaua, as well as that of Lilluokalunl, would seem to illus trate the well-known law of human history that as a rcS mankind does not advance uninterruptedly. The natives of Hawaii had accomplished wonders in the way of assimilating civilization. Then came the inevitable reaction, which, however, the impartial historian will regretfully be forced to admit was caused by degenerate white men fully as much ns by the natives themselves. Unfortunately tlie reactionary forces found the highest native authorities in full sympathy with them. The govern ment, in short, became, or was about to become, the exViuitive tool of Ameri can lottery agencies and other disin tegrating forces plainly foreshadowing an era of total demoralization. Against all this the better element of he island arose en masse nnd forced the ubdicution of th queen, who, con sciously or otherwise, had become the chief abettor of the social ruin of her own country. Political chaos nnd even bloodshed ensued, but out of it there arose in legitimate triumph a govern ment nt once intelligent, responsiWe nnd adequate. It was the best of Xew England saving a demoralized nation from its own self-imposed destruction. The foreign trade pf the islands ex reeds In value $is per capita for every man, woman and child in the country a record unpnrnlleleil in the history of the world. There nre no poorhouses in Hawaii, and paupers, beggars and trumps nre unknown. Hawaiian cities Mill villages possess all modern con veniences nnd afford every comfort en joyed by the people of any city in the United States. Prof. Ola'f Eliison, in Self Culture. Wells In the Sand. The Mexienn burro hns sense enough to provide for its own needs, if a story told by a traveler in that country be true. We had found in nn arroyo a suf ficient quantity of water to muke cof fee, when we observed three burros looking for water. They pussed sev eral damp plnees, examining the ground carefully, but deciding against it. Near us the leader halted, and began to paw a hole in the hot, dry sand with his right forefoot. Having dug a hole some thing over a foot in depth he backed out and watched it intently. To our surprise it soon began to fill with wa ter. Then he advanced, took a drink, and stepped aside as if inviting his com panions to follow his example. At all events, thnt was the light in which hey seemed to view his action, for they promptly advanced and quenched their thirst nt the shallow well. When they had gone away we got down and tried the water ourselves. It was cool and refreshing, much better than any we had found for many a ''x'" We came to the conclusion that the burros hod plenty of "horse sense." Y'outh's Com panion. The SucceaHfnl Man.
