Uardt furnished on application. WEDNESDAY, MAUOH 18, 1811«, Mr. Blackburn anil Mr. Addlcks. The Legislature of Kentucky has adjourned without electing a United States senator, and It Is generally accepted that Governor Bradley oanuol make an appointment. This bas bsen a great fight between sound and fiat money, and, bnt for the extreme partisan feeling among the Republican members. Secretary of the Treaeury Carlisle, a sound money man and a Democrat, could bave been eleoted to take the seat held for so many years by Senator Blackburn who owes bis defeat to the unholy alli ance be made with the silver men of Kentucky. Mr. Blackburn sud J. Edward AddlckB Bbonld exchange congratulatory tele grams. Each has produced a deadlock culminating In a vacancy, although the Interests Involved, were different. In Delaware there Is praotloally uo opposi tion to sound money, In favor of It. most potent factor In his campaign, but what be objected to was a fiat return for bis practical demonstration of tbe power of sannd money. He decided that, if his eound money dootrlne carried Delaware for tbe Republicans, be should he tbe chief beneficiary, and, If his claim were not allowed, he would see that Senator Nobody, from Nowhere, succeeded Sena tor Higgins. He made history for tbe state and lots of work for lawyers. Senator Blackburn, as the recognized leader of tbe Kentnoky Democracy, per mitted his party to go Into the cimpaigu with a free silver plauk in Its platform, and played into the hands of the silver fanatics with an ease which surprised his Bath parties »re Mr. Addloks found It a old party friends and delighted the Re pnblic&ns. The people of Kentucky administered a stinging rebuke and the Republicans were swept into power lu mmy branobes of government. Mr. Blsckbnrn found himself con fronted by two forces— Republicans and sound mouey Democrats. Having It In bis power to rreate a deadlock, be did so, sDd boldly announced his policy of "Blackburn or nobody 1" probably bor rowing it from J. Edward Addinks, bis brother in minority, who differed so radically from him on the sound mouey question, and Its potency as a factor lu -praeUcsl polities. Tbe sonnd-money Republicans and Carlisle UemocratB could have jMntd hands and eleoted a sound-money Senator, but party ties were too strong and tbe vacancy resulted. Both Mr. Blackburn and Mr Addlcks may have another opportunity to show the power of onrrency In determining the fata of parties and men.

There are some people In this country who seetu to think that Spain will do clam war ugalnat the United States cu account of onr fully-demonstrated sym-j pathyfor the Cuban patriots These people have formed an opinion from the expressions and the actlous of Spanish mobs and jlngolsts, rather than from any logical conclusion as to the present state of affairs between the two oouutrles.

It could never hope to capture this country or regain Cuba, so that all threats of what it can or could do lu this reg»rd ate as harmless as the piper wh.ch they tre written ou. The object of the Spanleh Government is to keep us, by every possible means, from helping tbe Cubans, and In thut it is wise. If It cannot put down the revolution in that island now It is dear that it will be impossible for it to do to if the patriots are assisted by this country.

It Is not only on account of the Inter ests of sound money that the coautry is to bs congratulated on the now practl eally assured failure of the movement to admit as states the territories of Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma. As long a? the United States Constitution gives to each new state admitted a representation In the Renate equal to that of any of the old states, It ought to be regarded as a matter for the gravest dellbaration whether It Is for the highest Interest of tbe Union as a whole that any proposed territory should be admitted this great share In the general govern meut. Had the Republican party been actuated by considerations such as theee, we should not have witnessed the addi tion of six territories in 1882 and 1820, which are in no way entitled to th« pre session of noirly oue seventh of the votlug power of the United States Senate. By tbe osnsus of 1800 those six new states bed a population of less than 1.140 000; and tbe total population of the Union being by the same o-msna. mere than 02 000,000, tbe six new states of North Dskota.

ËPAIïï'3 DETECTIVES WERE FOOLED Th« Reported Wreck of the Hawkln», It rrearrauged la Salti, Was Part of a rian—She Reached Cuba With Men, Arms and Ammunition. NEW Yokk, March 18.—Tho .Spanish detectives engaged lu keeping watch on tho niovemont? of tho Cubans in this country rvero v«r.v much oxercisod over tho report that tho steamer Hawkins did not sink on tbe morning of .Tan. 28, but that eho made lior way to tho Island, landed her cargo and is now laid up at ono of tho Florida keys. Tho story took two forms. Ono was that tho Hawkins carried a double crew. Both crows wero well paid, ono to servo till tho steamer returnod to port and tho other to bo discharged In small boats about five miles from tho Now Jersey coast. Tho vessel left port Saturday night, and by Tucsdny night she had gotten no further than Harnegat point. A A any ordinary vessel could malic this distance In much less time, suspicion was nt onco aroused. Tho detectives argue that the Hawkins was merely crawling along tho coast, waiting for a storm. Tho storm broke on Monday night, and on Tuesday morning the second crow left tho ship in small boatB, tailing a good many of tho pussen gers with them. They woro about flvo miles offshore when they abandoned the vessel and were picked up by passing ships before they landed. They then told a sad story of tho disability of tho Hawkins, giving every detail of -scones such as occur when a vc» sol sinks. They spoke of the manner In which tho chief cnglnoor rushed up on dock and reported tbnt water was pouring Into the engino room with groat rapidity. Boon It rose so high that tho fires wore put out, and the Hnwkius was left to the mercy of tho waves. Hughes ordered tho boots lowered, and all got away who could. Nino mon. however, wero left on board and drowned, bo tbe Tho detectives argue that this story was absolutely falso. They say that at tho time tho Culiana knew tliolr intended movements ware known to the United Staton unci Spuninii authorities In this country. They know that the cruisers Kalolgh and Montgomery, undor eon, innml of Admiral Bunco, wero watching fur them outside, assisted by tho revenue cutter? Morrill, McLean and Colfax. It was necessary, they sny, to taka some des Then Copt« in story went.

If u vos - ÀSS^SSSf l i!îî , S^»** 11 » Hnwklna «1 ,..«1 ,v.,h When tho insurgent« bought the ship, aho was supplied with six ordinary boats such as vessels of that class usually carry. Tlio day before sho sailed, however, six big lifeboats of tho size that steamers liko the New York carry wore hoisted on board and placed between new davits. When sho loft port, the Hawkins had 13 boats more than a steamer of her size was over known to carry. Tho Hawkins was only 144 feet in length, nnd It was hard work for her to carry tho boats. Tho dotoctives claim that tho new life boats wero bought especially for the purpose of lending tho men on tho Jersey coast. When the Cubans landed, they reported that tho chief engineer and his assistant hail bocn drowned. None of them could remember tho names. This was consider ed «transe, as Albertson, the chief engi ueer, was well known as a Cuban sympa thlzcr, and John Lynch, his assistant, was also acquainted with many of tho in surgents. Moreover, both Albertson anil Lynch were old seamen, nnd both wero selfish men. nnd it is argued that in a race for life for the boats they certainly would not bo left behind. Among tlioso who said to lw lost worn Kmllo Juillals, French authority on explosives—tho Hawkins carried 1,0(10 pounds of dyna mite—and n Swedo who was to instruct tho Cubans in the use of Iho maxim and botch kiss guns. '.ii i 11 General Careia'» Shotgun. General Garcia was tho only man of consoquonco rescued, and tho dotoctives sny that was done In order to allay their suspicions further. Besides, they say Gar cia can do more good ln this country at the present time than ho can in Cuba. Moreover, the defectives say that tho Hawkins had on board twice us many men as sho could carry to Cuba, and that It was absolutely necessary to dispose of somo of them on route. Another version of tho story on which tho detectives arc working is that tho Hawkins is actually at tho bottom of Iho ocean, having been scuttlod by tho Cu bans after her cargo had been transferred to another ve-scl. They do not take up this theory with tiny degree of avidity, however, as they nro inclined to think sho actually made her landing in Cuba. They believe she went to the north nnd east of the Island and then mndo her way to the Florida keys, «hm she Is waiting for an other expedition. "You may bo suro of one thing," said a former naval officer, who has recently lit ted out two expeditions to Cuba, "and that Is that tho Hawkins' cargo is now safe in Cuba, say.'' a as at More than tlint 1 will not t<-t! of Miin:?lauRhter.
