It is staled that the Spanish army in Cuba numbers now about 100,000, all the rest of the something like 200,000 who have been scut to the island are either dead from bullets or disease or are in the hospitals. Senator Hill say3 he is satislled with his record. Hut if he is to remain in rolitics it is a more tnt mnttnr that tlio Democratic ty of New York shall be satislled with it and it is very doubtful that they will be found in that mood' It is announced that the vast export business of the Kansts City packers is about to betransferred from New York to New Orleans. The Crescent City ha9 already captured a largo part of the export grain trade. She bids fair to become a serious menace to the New York raarkit. Spain has made a requisition on General Weyler for 15,000 troop to be sent to the Philippine Islands. She has evidently come to the conclusion that a smaller army would serve the ends Weyler has been able to accomplish as well ns the larger one, and in this tlio world will readily agree with her. Thomas C. Paatt will not lose any sleep over the false and scandalous charges preferred by the "Wine and Spirits Gazette," with reference to bis influence with the legislature be ing bought by the New York brewers. A self-confessed bribe giver is a witness whose weight with the public will not amount to much. Ciiaulks F. Si'it.vnuK, of lioston, is credited with being the wealthiest member of the congress. He and bis wife are icported to fortunes aggregating Mr. Sprague is a lawyer, but the attention required bj' his own vast interests prevents his giving much attention to business for clients. Onk of the pension bills introduced by Mr. White, of California, in the Senate on Thursday was for the relief of William J.llrynu. It created quite a ripple of laughter among the sedate Senators. It is needless to say the intended beneficiary was not the late Presidential candidate. So far from relieving William Jennings, the peoplo would prefer n bill in their own behalf, or relief from the redoubtable William Jennings, who is their most .pronounced affliction. Two million dollars have been subscribed In Loudon for the relief of the famine sufferers in India, and the fund is still growing. The harrowing details of the suffering that prevails in India among the native population are certainly sullicient to loosen tlio purse strings of the English nabobs. Stories come of parents giving up their children to the missionaries and going off to die, and of liundieds dying by the roadside where they have gone in the hope of meeting n transient relief. Tiik increase of duties in the new tariff bill is perhaps more strongly marked in the schedule of tobacco and cigars than in any other, which is certainly proper. Our tobacco industry Js one of tlio most important in all its branches. Tnc capital in vested in tobacco iu in high up into million?, and there arc employed in the various branches of work, the growth manufacture and distribution of the weed several million people. It is theiefore of great importance tp the entire country that it should be well protected against the cheaper labor of foiicgu coun tries, of which Mexico bids fair to tke a leading hand. Tiik absurd length to which Mr Cleveland went in extending the operation of the civil service rules for the purpose of perpetuating in olllce the Democrats who found positions under his administration is shown by i.ew developments almost dally. Senator Fry, of Maine, called attention to the fact that nn engineer, in charge of works upon the Columbia river, had to apply to the civil service enmmWalnn for labor to com. plete '-is wuih. lie wis not at i m ploy such hl r is he could tltiil in lli" vMtnty, mill was nbiiM'la it 1 v competent, but he must apply tn the fiiinmt itin nt Washington fur hilur to be scut him from iiino'ijr ihitsi? who were on tin m'ls. The Litnlou "Daily Mall" !ays: "The vnga'l - of a ctiinlii sovereign re cnuMtig profound anxiety to his family, and especially to the diplomats who recognize that the concert of Kuropc may at any moment be disturbed. 1'inching guests and trying to trip them with his sword arc among the antics attributed to the insane sovereign." The paragraph unmistakably bints at Emperor William o' Gentiany.wlio has before this time been thought to be a little off nt times. Should it develop that there is really ground for the suspicion of the Kmncror's sanity the effect of the discovery on the action of the powers may be far reaching. It is to be regretted that the ne cessities of the treasury seem to re quire a radical departure from the policy of the McKiuley law in one instance In the new tariff. The imposition of a high tariff on sugar, nn article of such universal use and of which our importation is about of our consumption, will not be received with general favor. Hut the return to the bounty system inaugurated by the McKiuley law is impracticable, its the resources of the government will be taxed to raise sullicient revenue for the ordinary demands upon it, without the assumption of such obligation. The necessity of expanding and building up our sugar industry is generally recognized, and the proposed tariff will certainly stimulate it and eventually result in reduction of prices, by reason of increased home production. William L. Wilson, whose name the existing tariff law bears, says if we "invite back prosperity" we do not need increased tariffs. The obvious meaning of Mr. Wilson is that n prospeious con dition of business would result In increased importations of foreign goods, since increased revenue without an increase in the, rate- Bf tariff could be realized in no other way. Rut increased importation., menus smaller consumption of Amciican made goods and this means idle American labor. This in turn means not only fewer people with money to spend, but a smaller amount to be spent by those wage earners who have work, because when a large per ccntage of labor is idle, the price declines by the inexorable law of supply and demand. There is no way to "invito back prosperity" but to im port less foreign goods and give the millions of idle laboics in this country an opportunity to make them. A Havana dispatch says the Spanish army in Cuba is not so strong a3 the Madrid government believes, and the order sent to (Sen. Weyler to withdraw some 15,000 men from the Held for the purpose of sending them to the Phillipines has disclosed one of the biggest frauds perpetrated by Spanish olllcials since Cuba has been under tlio rnlc of Spain. Fifty per cent, at least of all he losses in the army, Inclined either in battle or by disease has not been reported to the Madrid aulhoiities. Nevertheless the pay of the dead soldiers and the money for their provisiou3 and clothing have been regularly charged to the Spanish government and pock' ctcd by the cashiers of the battalions. It has also bceii asserted that General Weyler has prolltted very largely at the expense of the government by charging up to the government nt greatly advanced prices horses, mules and provisions bought for the use of ihe army. One might expect such u course fram a commander who exhibits no morn traits of manhood than docs this inhuman monster. I i.i.rs n:uxn the mnderu methods of a large wholsnle house in cases of emergency is the case of the Dry Goods house, ' of St. Louis, which was burned out on Mon-hay, suffering a loss of 84,5U0,OOO, mostly covered by insurance. On Tuesday the linn hired new quarters and set its force of 250 clerks and salesmen to work getting ready for business. Tlio entire stock was de stroyed, but they have in their reserve warehouso $800,000 woith of goods and iu transit 6200,000 woith more. Tho head buyer for thp llrm left Tuesday night for New York, ac companied by ton buyers, in n spc setting cinl car, to loy in a new stock, which revenue. will be sent forward by special freight trains chartered to run on passenger schedules, nnd tlio goods nro expect- cd to arrive in St. Louis within five days, so that before n week from the date of their immenso loss they will be doing business at their new stand ns smoothly us they did rt the old. The loss occurring in the midst of their busy season when they arc filling heavy orders rendered this dispatch necessary nnd this great company rose to the occasion. Tiik prospects for big water in the Mississippi arc first-class. The Missouri water shed has the heaviest snow it is said since 1814, being more than three feet deep over a very large area. The situation is thus outlined In a dispatch from Omaha: "Preparations are being made along the Missouri river from Omaha north to avoid a disastrous Hood. The river has already begun to show signs of the spring rise, nnd its tributaries in Nebraska are running bank full. Railroad olllcials report there is the deepest snow since 1811 throughout the watershed of the Missouri river. The different roads crossing tlio Missouri in Nebraska nre making efforts to prevent destruction of property in the event of a big Hood, as many (Irmly believe will come. Ice is not going out of the river south of Sioux City, and it varies in dcptli in the channel from two to three feet, while on the bars it is frozen solidly down to the sand." When the big melt takes place, which may be any day, a Hood of water will come washing down the Missouri, whose intlucncc will be felt in n very positive m.mncr for hundreds of miles along the Mississippi river. Should it come before the present rise is materially abated the result would be fearful to contem plate. The current of the Missouri is ver rapid, and in a oiven time it will throw out far more water than either the Ohio or Mississippi. RKKr.mtiNU to a decision invalidat ing the action of the Louisville in changing the boundaries of the Senatorial districts of .that city, whereby, it is contended, the seat of Senator Liuney will be endangered, the "Courier-Journal" says: The decision of Judge DuRcllehas even a more far-reaching eirect than this. It will put an end to any at tempt to gerrymander the state by the Republicans, ns recommended in Gov. Uradiey's message. In the face '$11 ,000,000, Cleveland of n decision of the court of appeals 'just that the city council of Louisville violated the state constitution by changing a legislative district, tlio legislature would not attempt to commit tlio same violation of the constitution. It is presumed the above para graph was admitted to the columns of the "Courier-Journal" inadvertently. Surely the "Courier-Journal" would not contend that the legislature has not the power to district the state. Ceitainly no one who gave a moment's thought to the matter and who has any knowledge whatever of such matters, would contend that a legislative district might be lixed by a city council. As we understand it the constitution provides that the legislutuic shall divide the state into districts, and the presumption h that it was this provision of the rendered the action of the city council void. Tho "Courier-Journal" certainly will not contend that having onco districted the slate the legislature has no power to change the districts in accordance with the demands of n changing population. THANKS FltOM GKKI'Ci:. JrT before the close of the Inst congress the senate passed a resolution of sympathy with the Cretan revolutionists in their struggle for liberty. A day or fo since Secretary Sherman received and forwarded to the senate tho following cablegram, forwarded through tho Greek consul general in New York: "To the United States Senate: "The warm thanks of the Greek nation, as well as of the Government of Greece, are due your honorable body for tho expression of its sym pathies, which arc a most valuable assistance to us townrd the accomplishment of our national The Consul General adds on his own behalf that "the resolution has" made the most valuable impression on the Greeks in the United States, who, while enjoymg the blessing of liberty in this country under her liberal laws, are in hearty sympatly with their mother land iu her efforts to free their oppiossed brethren." The President's I'lrst Message. Tho President's Inaugural was a general discussion of national questions. No special prominence was given to any particular subject. The occasion called for such an address, lint the llrst message scut to the Congress nt the opening of tho extra session was devoted to one thing. It was specially appropriate that William McKiuley ns President should make theso two beginnings. Ho is not a hobby-rider. On the contrary, his statesmanship is broad and comprehends the various needs of the country j but tho subject of tariff, which occasioned this extra session, is his specialty, and to it the country Is luilelited for the fact that he is President. i ho inrssago is mainly devoted to forth the needs of more Ior more than thrco years the rovenues of the government have Ufcn Jess than the needs of tno government, economically administered. Tlio details in support of thfg propor sitlou are set forth in n careful and exact review of our fiscal affairs from July 1, 18K2, to March 1, 1847. In the light of these facts the proposition laid down becomes perfectly self-evident. The revenue necessities of tho are given preponderance from llrst tolast. "Ample revenue," says the President, "must bo supplied not only for tho ordinary expenses of the government, but for the prompt payment of liberal pensions and the liquidation of tho principal and Interest of the public debt." To this declaration every member of Congress is bound to assent. There may bo somo who nt heart rebel against paying pensions or the national bebt, but that number is small and without a voice. The message is n column in leugth, but to the protection feature of the case is devoted only one brief paragraph. That paragraph is explicit nnd strong. It has precisely tho samo ring to it that all Mr. McKlnlcy's speeches devoted to protection hnd. Hut the occasion is different. Seven years ago, when he was working away nt u new tariff, the revenues of the country were ample too great, in (pet. The problem was to reduce rather than increase the receipts of the treasury without lessening protection. That was a hard matter, for in the ordinary course of things protection is Increased or decreased. As the II nances of the treasury now staud, tho natural order is '.he order required by the exigencies of the situation. The statistical part of this special message is in refreshing contrast, in its simplicity and exactness of statement, to the turgid and misleading comments from time to time ot Cleveland and Carlisle on the sainc general subject. Never once did cither of them come out squarely and own up that as a reyenuo producer the Democratic tariff was a failure and a revision must come, wliollv irrespective of protection. McKiuley begins with the treasury balance for the fiscal year which end-ed June 30, 1802. The receipts were, in round numbers, $10,000 000 in excess of the expenditures. Surely no one can deny that that was almost an ideal balance. We always ought to make sure that the excess is on the receipt, not on the expenditure, side. And the expenditures of that year took in over $10,000,000 paid in reducing the public debt, the reduction of which during the Harri son term was almost $-'00,000,000 ur course dales, not names, are given in the message, but it is none the less perfectly plain that while Harrison reduced the annual interest charge nearer $12,000,000 than lucreosed it about the same amount. To appreciate the significance of this contrast it is necessary to add the two together, for the reasonable supposition is that if Harrison had been re-elected he would have kept right 011 reducing the debt. Practically the burden of interest now heav ier by u year tliau it would have been fit Gn.ver Cleveland had not been elected In 181)2. There is really no escape from this conclusion from the statistical facts given in this message, albeit the message itself is content with the presentatibn of the facts and their application to the present duty of Congress. Inter Ocean. DVNAMITh A TICAIN. IVrrililo of Life Soldiers. to Spanish A special Havana Dispatch to the Globe-Democrat says: One of the most disastrous events that has occurred in Pinar del Iiio Province, against the Spanish columns, has Just been reported here through Cuban circles. From the statements received it appears that a train of Span-is troops passing south of Candclnria, was blown up by dynamite while passing over a deep gorge in the highlands, and nearly 250 soldiers were killed or wounded, main1 of them be ing blown into fragments. The loco motive and six cars were nearly destroyed. It occurred about March 10. The Spanish General, had learned of a projected insurgent attack, supposedly on San Christobel, and he sent off 500 troops, with armored cars, to the garrison there. About ten miles from San Christobel the tracks cross a deep gorge on a very high bridge, which i3 about 500 feet long. The insurgents had learned of the departure of tho train and its load of troops through thcir spics, and they immediately lined the bridge on both ends und the center with a heavy charge of dynamite, connecting tho wires in the woods somo distance off. Three hundred insurgents were then hidden near by. It is understpod that the Nunez brothers were in command, und that Capt. John Lynn, the young American electrical engineer, who lias made himself famous in Cuba for his work on the dynamite gun, contrived the ambuscade. Tlio train approached the bridge about 3 o clock in the morning, and when fully on it nil three charges uero exploded bv the wires. The effect was tremendous. The engine and sis cars wero thrown bodily into the air like so many chips, and were almost blown to pieces. Tho wrecked cars fell int i the deep gorgo below, crushing out life from all whom tho explosion had not killed. The cars then took lire. Three cars that escaped serious damage (ell over sidowaya poured out insurgents .ln.l.n.1 from their ml.a. cade upon them with wild cries. A massacre ensued. Hut for the time ly hoisting of the whito Hag by Col. Moncs, who vas in command of the Spanish foicos, every uiuii would have been mochctted. As it wa, the Cubans secured 300 prisoners, including ten olllccrs. Tlie scene of tlio explosion wns a most horrible one. The ties lining tho railroad trade and gorge wero literally covered with fragments of huinnn bodies, clothing nml npllnt. ered wood from tho cars. Tho lire consumed all that was left iu the gorge. It is said that from 1.10 to 30(1 Spaniards were killed in this con Save Your Money Whf x" , Uy calling on us when in the city.
