WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.—The United
States steamship Maine has been or
dered to Havana. It Is said in the Navy
Department that no disturbing news has
been received but this movement is
rather in the line of a resumption of the
free intercourse of our naval vessels
In Cuban waters which prevailed prior
to their withdrawal on account of the
outbreak of hostilities.
It is evident th»t the decision to send
the Maine to Havana for a visit was not
arrived at hastily from the events that
preceded the announcement. For some
time past the administration officials
have been of the opinion that a mistake
was made by the preceding administra
tion concerning the Cuban situation, in
deciding, out of excessive caution and
an overweening regard for the sensibili
ties of the Spanish public, to abandon
the practice which had been pursued by
our Navy Department for years, of send
ing our warßhlps at intervals on cruises
through the West Indies with frequent
stops at Havana. It is not regarded as
consistent with our national pride that
thiß action, common to all maritime na
tions, should have been abandoned or
suspended, and it is believed that if it
had been consistently adhered to there
never would have been complaint of the
visit of our ships from Spanish sources.
British and all nations' ships have
visited ports inhabited by any consider
able number of their citizens, when there
were any signs of trouble that threaten
ed them or their property. There-
fore, the administration, some time ago,
came to the conclusion that it would take
steps to restore the older order of things
and allow our warships to cruise freely
and touch at Cuban ports as soon as the
change could be made without leading to
misconstruction and without being in
terpreted as a war measure when, as a
matter of fact, nothing was further from
the Intention of the President. The first
movement In the direction of the restor
ation of the older order was taken last
fall, before the assembling of Congress,
when Secretary Ling announced
through the Associated Press his inten
tion to send the entire North Atlantic
squadron to the Tortugas harbor for
their winter evolutions, which for sev
eral years past, or ever since the begin
ning of the Cuban Insurrection, had been
performed with difficulty and under all
kinds of discouraging conditions of wind
and weather off the Chesapeake capes.
This movement, being received with
equanimity, the next step followed,
when some of our little gunboats were
sent on a cruise In the West Indies, the
Wilmington and Annapolis now being in
those waters. It only remained to send
one of our ships to Havana to complete
ly restore the old practice. Naturally
this was a more delicate step than had
been called for previously and it was not
until the administration had satisfied
Itself that conditions in Havana had re
sumed their normal state, that existed
before the recent military riot against
the newspapers, that it was deemed
timely to make the last move. This de
cision was not reached without con
sideration of all the results that might
The Spanish Minister, Dupuy De
Lome, was an early caller at the State
Department, his purpose being to advise
with the officials relative to the nego
tiation of a reciprocity treaty for Cuba
under the terms of the present tariff act.
This purpose in Itself may be regarded
as an evidence of the confidence of both
parties in the security of the outlook.
After his visit Assistant Secretary Day
repaired to the White House, and there
was a notable gathering around the
President, including Secretary Long of
the navy, Attorney-General McKenna
and General Miles, the commander-in-
chief of the army. All callers were de
nied access to the President's room,
much to their chagrin, this being the
day of the week that is most largely as
signed to the reception of Congression
al callers. The conference lasted for
nearly an hour, and when it broke up it
was with every evidence of confidence
in the peaceful outlook that the mem
bers dispersed.
Secretary Long was entrusted with
the duty of making a public statement
concerning the Maine's orders and the
reasons therefor.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.—Secretary
Long, of the Navy Department, was seen
this morning concerning the rumors that
were alloat in regard to the movements
of the ships, and said:
"So far from there being any founda
tion for the rumors yesterday of trouble
at Havana, matters are now in such
condition that our vessels are going to
resume their friendly calls at Cuban
ports and go In and out just as the ves
sels of other nations do. The Maine will
go in a day or two on just such a visit.
The department has issued orders for
vessels to attend the public celebrations
at Mobile and the Mardl Gras at New
Orleans, and for the torpedo boat flotilla
to visit Galveston. Tex."
WASHINGTON, Jan. 24. —At the
Spanish legation nothing was known of
the orders to the Maine to proceed to
Havana. Minister De Lome said that
It portended nothing serious. It was
perfectly in accord with usage for war-
Ehlps of friendly nations to enter and
leave each other's ports. The warships
of Spain have visited American ports
ln complimentary trips several times,
and If then- have been no American
ships in Havana in the same length ot
time it is merely because the United
States government has not ordered them
there. As to the possible consequences
of the Maine's appearing at Havana at
this time, the Minister said he was not
at all uneasy. There was no doubt, he
said, of the conservative behavior of the
loyal Spanish people in Havana and
elsewhere, and the only remote contin
gency which might lead to unpleasant
consequences was some overt act on the
part of the insurgents' sympathizers,
committed with the hope of embroiling
Spain and the United States through
just such an Incident us happened to
the Baltimore's crew during the insur
rection in Chile. In response to an in
quiry, the Minister said that it was not
customary nor a part of diplomatic
usage for one country to notify the
diplomatic representatives of another
country that it Intended to send a war
vessel to the waters of their nation.
The statement of Minister De Lome
makes It apparent that the Spanish gov
ernment will not regard the dispatch of
the Maine to Havana as a hostile act
and equivalent to a breach of the friend
ly relations between the two countries.
Senor Quesada, secretary of the Cuban
junta, and Senor Albertini of the Cuban
staff in Washington, were about the cap
itol during the day conferring with
members concerning the Cuban status.
Mr. Quesada said:
"The sending of the Maine to Cuba,
whatever be the official version, is, in
our opinion, proof that things are In
such condition in the few Spanish
strongholds that anarchy reigns and
that American citizens and property,
unable to find protection at the hands of
the Spanish government, have now the
protection of their own vessels. It Is
a declaration to the world that the
United States are not afraid of the Span
ish rabble which seems to control the
Spanish officials. The attitude of the
Spanish papers and officials has been
that the presence of an American war-
ship In Havana means intervention;
undoubtedly they will now say it is the
most natural thing for any nation to
send its vessels to the ports of a friendly
power, and Mr. de Lome will declare that
his government is delighted. But we
shall soon hear from Gen. Weyler's sub
ordinates in Cuba and from Spain—
that is, if the cannon of the Maine do not
bring to the Spanish minds the convic
tion that prudence In this case is the
better part of valor."
Senor Albertini says the sending of the
Maine will Justify itself with future
events. With his acquaintance with
Spanish methods he says there is great
er reason for apprehension than has yet
been shown, and he declares that as soon
as Spain finds that Cuba is lost a car
nival of slaughter will be inaugurated
with the guns of Moro Castle and the
Cabanas fortress trained on the city of
WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.—The first
intimation of the members of the Senate
Committee on Foreign Relations con
cerning the orders of the Maine were
given in the Associated Press dis
Senator Frye said the action was emi
nently satisfactory to him. Senator Gray
said it was very proper to have a war
ship in Havana for the protection of
American interests.
Senator Morgan said Germany had
shown the United States the way by
sending her warships to Havana and
he -was evidently badgering the govern
ment in the matter.
Senator Foraker was especially
pleased to hear the news. He said he
wished the Texas and the other ves
sels of the squadron would be ordered
to follow the Maine.
Senator Collum said: "I am glad to
hear it. I hope the Maine will be fol
lowed by other vessels."
Senator Teller said he would like to
see the harbor of Havana filled with
American ships.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.—Never be
fore has the majesty of the United
States been represented by so large and
powerful a fleet of warships as that now
gathered off the extreme southern coast
of Florida, within direct striking dis
tance of the island of Cuba. Whether
the ships are called into action or not, an
examination of the squadron now en
gaged ostensibly In drill, but really in
watching the progress of events across
the narrow channel which separates the
Dry Tortugas from Havana, shows that
it was not collected for dress parade pur
For a year the Navy Department has
been preparing for this very emergency,
and the result Is a fleet such as has never
been seen before, ready for service, in
American waters.
The Atlantic fleet, now under orders
of Admiral Slcard, with headquarters at
Tortugas and a telegraph address at
Key West, Is made up of the battleships
Indiana, lowa and Massachusetts, the
second-class battleships Maine and
Texas, the Monitor Terror, the armored
cruisers New York and Brooklyn, the
cruisers Detroit and Montgomery, and
the torpedo boats Cushing, Dupont, Er
icsson, Foley and Porter, with the dyna
mite cruiser Vesuvius, and the little dis
patch boat Fern.
There is not a back number in the fleet.
With the exception of the Cushing tor
pedo boat, which was put into service
In 1890, not a ship in the fleet has been in
commission for five years. They are the
flower of the new navy and the sixteen
fighting machines are manned by 337 of
ficers, 3834 men, besides the marines. The
batteries of the heavy ships are simply
tremendous. When in action the fleet
will be throwing shells from seventy
eight rilled guns, with an addition of
fifty rapid-lire rifles. All this is for long
range business, and is in addition to the
secondary batteries of lo\v-calibered
guns. The torpedo fleet is now armed
with fifteen eighteen-inch Whitehead
torpedoes and the ships themselves arc
fitted up with tubes for sending out
twenty-three torpedoes, a total effective
battery of twenty-three marine engines,
besides the Vesuvius, mounting three
dynamite guns.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 24,—Minister
Woodford has cabled to the department
of state that the government of Spain
has consented to negotiate a commercial
treaty with the United States on the
basis of reciprocity, with schedules for
Cuba and the peninsula.
The negotiations will be conducted in
Washington at a time yet to be agreed
HAVANA, Jan. 24.—Captain General
Blanco left the palace at 6 oclock for
the station at Villa Neuva, where h"
embarked on an express train for Bata
bamo on the south coast. From there 1),
will lake a coasting steamer for Cien
fuegos, Santa Clara, province of Santia
go de Cuba. During the absence of the
captain general. Gen. Parado will exer
cise the functions of that office.
Gen. Blanco has issued a decree par
doning all persons under sentence for
complicity in the "rebellion" whose
terms of imprisonment expire on Feb
ruary 28th next.
The censorship over foreign newspa
pers has been abolished.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 24.—A
dispatch to the Times-Union and Citizen
from Key West says: Great excitement
prevails here over a report that Consul

WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.—Assistant
Secretary of State Day said tonight:
"There Is absolutely no truth In the re
port that Gen. Lee has tendered hie res
ignation. He le in perfect accord with
the administration and the administra
tion with him."
NEW TORK, Jan. 24 —The steamer
La Champagne, which arrived today
from Havre, brought 6,250,000 francs tn
transit to Cuba.
MADRID. Jan. 24.—The cabinet will
meet on Wednesday to discuss the pro
posed commercial treaty between the
United States and Cuba. United States
Minister Woodford asserts that the
American cruiser Helena is proceeding
to Lisbon already to relieve the Ameri
can vessel now there.
NEW YORK, Jan. 24. A dispatch to
the Tribune says: The policy of the
government in Cuba Is still conducted
more with reference to Madrid and
Washington than the Island itself.
General Blanco's military operations
continue indefinite. He may take the
field next month, but that is uncertain.
Guards are maintained around the
autonomist newspapers and some of the
troops brought In from the country are
kept in the city, but the volunteers and
intransigents are apparently satisfied.
There Is nothing In the present situa
tion to cause hostile demonstrations on
their part or to give ground for upris
Fears of an outbreak in the country
have not been realized. The disturb
ances at Cadeneze the other day did not
prove serious. The embarrasment of the
government will come from the prefer
ence of the intranslgeants for an Amer
ican protectorate as a refuge from au
No steps have yet been taken to send
delegates to Washington to negotiate
a reciprocity treaty under the direction
of Minister de Lome. A plan was sug
gested as a means of showing autonomy
was in operation, but the fear is that
such action would be ridiculed and not
without reason. It will be necessary to
re-establish commerce with the United
States before the basis of a reciprocity
treaty can be found.
The volunteers have had a fear of the
concession made of their power.
They are an armed force, and a ques
tion was raised whether, being such,
they were entitled to the suffrage. An
assurance was given that the govern
ment had no Intention of depriving them
of their votes. The volunteers In Ha
vana number between 18,000 and 20,000.
They are lntranslgeants and conserva
tives almost to a man. If they should
decide to take part In the elections, they
would act as a body and would make it
interesting for the government.
NEW YORK, Jan. 24. —A dispatch to
the Herald from Madrid says: The at
tacks in the House at Washington have
produced a feeling here which, perhaps,
is scarcely justifiable, pointing toward
the tixed purpose of a certain section of
American politicians to Insist on war
with Spain. The government itself is
disturbed and the press is full of the
NEW LONDON, Conn., Jan. 24.—
There is a suspicion in shipping circles
here that the Tillie, an old steam freight
er that had been in the service of the
Central Vermont Railroad for over 30
years, but recently sold to New York
parties, was loaded while lying off Mon
tauk Point, Long Island, with arms and
ammunition in cases.
The steamer was sighted by the cap
tain of the tug Ashley which was mak
ing for this harbor and he is positive
in the identification. The steamer
lighter Columbia was alongside at the
time. Later the Columbia put into this
harbor. The captain told conflicting
stories and later sailed from here sud
The Tillie left New York with clear
ance papers for Key West, but after sail
ing the authorities had their suspicions
aroused and gave orders to be on the
lookout for her.
NEW YORK, Jan. 24.—The World's
Washington correspondent says that the
jvarship Maine was ordered to Havana
in response to a cablegram from Consul
General Lee. After 6 oclock tonight
three cipher dispatches from Gen. Leo
were received at the state department,
translated and sent to Judge Day. as
sistant secretary of state, who took them
to a dinner given by Justice McKenna.
At that dinner all the members of the
cabinet except Gen. Alger were present,
and a consultation, practically a cabinet
meeting, was held to consider the situa
tion in Cuba.
After returning to the executive man-
sion the president ordered direct tele
graphic connection between there and
Key West. It was then his evident in
tention to send a long dispatch to Gen.
Lee, but he subsequently decided to de
fer this until morning.
NEWPORT, It. 1.. Jan. 24.—Torpedo

four remaining to assist the mob. Wit
ness gave the names of these men.
Three witnesses were examined tonight.
The grand jury is expected to make its
report tomorrow.

STOCKTON, Jan. 24.—A protest
against the reduction of the letter car
riers ln Stockton, by cutting off tbe three

Miss Minnie Klevesahl, who was chosen to be queen of the golden
west during the jubilee week in San Francisco, Is one of California's
most beautiful native daughters. She was born in San Francisco about
twenty years ago, and has grown to womanhood in the glorious climate.
She has the bright beauty that life In the ozone and oxygen of the
coast confers on California women, and she is most popular among the
young people of the metropolis of the golden state.
Miss Klevesahl was chosen queen of the jubilee by the unanimous
vote of the Daughters of the Golden West. She has been a member of
that organization since she was a girl of 15, and is now one of the trus

and in every way most fitting for the lofty place to which she has been
raised by the people of her own great state.

BOISE, Idaho, Jan. 24.—1n connection
with the celebration In San Francleco of
the discovery ot gold in California, the
story told by Nathan Smith of this state
Is interesting.. Before hie death Smith
often told the story and expressed a de
sire that the true history of the discov
ery should be published. Smith claimed
to have been with Marshall. He said
when they were deepening the tall race
to the mill the little son of one of the
men was playing in the water. This man
was named Nlmmer. His boy bothered
him, showing pebbles that he picked
from the water. Finally the boy picked
up something bright and went to show,
it to his father. The latter impatiently
ordered him to go away, and the boy sat
down on tbe bank and cried. Marshall
sought to comfort him, asking to see
what he had. It proved to be the nugget
that made Marshall and California

He applied to Contractor Booth for
work at noon yesterday and was put to
work at 1 oclock. His labor consisted In
shoveling earth out of the side ot the
cellar next to the Tally-ho stables. The
side wall of the stables had been under
mined in places, and Leyden had been
warned to be careful. While he was dig
ging close to the corner a huge mass of
bricks from the base of the side wall fell
upon him, striking him on the left side
of the head and left shoulder. He was
half-burled under the bricks. His fel-
low-workmen took him out as soon as
possible and carried him to the receiv
ing hospital, where Dr. Hagan exam
ined his injuries.
He was bleeding at the ears and nos
trils and was also suffering from an In
ternal hemorrhage. It was found that
five ribs on the left side of his body had
been fractured, the breast-bone crushed,
his right leg broken near the knee, and
his left ear almost torn from his head.
On his head were numerous gashes
where he had been struck by the falling
bricks. Dr. Hagan took thirty-two
stitches ln his wounds. The patient was
too weak to be moved and was left in the
receiving hospital for the night.
Ratcliffe's Troubles
NEW YORK, Jan. 24.—Edward J. Rat
clllTe, the actor, was held In $2000 ball
today on the charge of perjury. The
alleged perjury consists in his swear
ing during the recent trial for assault
ing his wife, the daughter of Peter De-
Lacey, that he had never been married
before. Today Caroline Ravenhlll, who
alleges that Ratcllffe married her in
England in 1883, produced the original
marriage certificate, which is alleged to
prove the actor's perjury and bigamy.
A warrant has been issued against
Ratcllffe in New Jersey for bigamy,
and papers in a suit for annulment of
marriage, brought by Peter DeLacey's
daughter, were served on Ratcllffe to
