of Casualties.
Madrid, March 17.—The queen regent
has signed the treaty of peace.
The signed treaty of peace will be for
warded to the French ambassador at.
Washington for exchange with the one
signed by McKinley. No decree on the
subject will be published in. the official
Hostilities Will End
Washington, March 17.—Advices have
been received from Manila which indicate
' that the climax may occur at any hour.
I The officials here are very well pleased
I with the condition of affairs, but will not
at present discuss the details of the dis
j patches. The indications are that hos
tilities may end within a very short time.
More Prisoners
Manila. March 17.— 4 p. m.—Company G,
of the Washington volunteers, has cap
tured 150 additional prisoners near Tag
uig and also seized some ammunition.
Most of the rebels' arms were hidden or
thrown into the river. The engineers
threw a temporary bridge across the Pa
sig river for the artillery and commis
sary trains. The 20th regiment will re
turn front the front today.
Left For Manila
Oswego, N. Y., March 17.—Company G,
Ninth infantry, left Fort Ontario for
Manila via San Francisco today.
Medium of France
Washington, March 17.—In the absence
of any direct diplomatic communication
between the United States and Spain
Secretary Hay expects to receive his first
formal notice of the ratification of the
peace treaty by the queen regent through
the medium of the French embassy here.
The next step must be taken by Spain,
that is she must name her special envoy
and notify the United States government
of the probable dates upon which he will
present himself in Washington with the
exchange copy of the treaty of peace. Al
though In most instances little more than
a pel functory.ceremony in the casie of the
exchange of ratifications of this treaty
the details will be of more than ordinary
interest for the occasion will be histori

Reinforcements For Otis
Washington, March 17.—The war de
partment has ordered sent to Gen. Otis
three light batteries and a half dozen
Hotchkiss guns to be used as a mountain
batteries. The general cabled last even
ing for these, saying that 72 horses should
accompany the three batteries. These
batteries are needed where it is impossible
to move the heavier artillery.
New York, March. 17.—A dispatch to
the Herald from Manila says: On Mon
day your correspondent went aboard the
United States gunboat Laguna de Bay
and accompanied her on the chase of the
rebels. first 6teamed past the town
of Pasig and turned her Gatling guns on
the insurgents intrenched! algnf the
shore. The Insurgents were so frighten
ed that the women, children, horses, sol*
diers and carabns fled in hundreds across
the open fields toward Laguna de Bay.
The gunboat ceased firing, but followed
close behind the panic stricken crowd,
driving them inland.
On Tuesday the gunboat Ceste joined
the Laguna de Bay, both under command
of Capt Grant. They made for the lake
channel, which had been blocked by the
insurgents, but they finally cleared the
way. On the lake we chased two sailing
vessels which were full of insurgents.
Both vessels refused to surrender and
ran ashore, the rtoops escaping in spite
of our fire.
During Wednesday, while approaching
Santa Cruz, the richest city on the lake,
we raised a white flag when five hundred
yards from the shore. A large force of
insurgents.are intrenched in front of the
town, but they refused to confer with us.
Then we shelled their position effectively
and withdrew to the end of t he lake to
await the landing of our forces.
New Y.ork.i.&gy'vl 1 17.—A dispatch to the
Herald from Havana says: Wednesday
night's demonstration in favor of Gomez
at the Molinas seems to have been turned
by the anti-asse'mbly leaders into some
thing of a presidential boom for the
"grand old man" of Cuban politics. Most
of the speakers insisted on proclaiming
the deposed general-in-chief the sole
guaranteer of insular independence and
the inevitable head of the still unformed
Cuban republic.
In reply to these highly flattering as
surances, Gen. Gomez cautiously, but still
suggestively declared that he could not
think of accepting the presidential title'
unless it were bestowed upon him by the
unanimous vote of the Cuban people.
This answer disclosed an intention
singularly at variance -with the pro
gramme he announced in his manifesto
of Sunday last in response to the assem
bly's resolution deposing him from office.
In that manifesto he said that his sole
desire was now to retire to private life
and end his days in peace on his planta
tion in San Domingo. His new attitude
is also in striking contrast with his offer
of his sword to a committee of Porto
Ricans which had suggested the initiation
of a movement for independence in that
Gen. Gomez's latest change of front Is
due doubtless to the overwhelming char
acter of the victory he has won over the
assembly and to the elation he feels at
the almost unanimous support offered to
him by all classes of the Cuban people.
His future course in politics will ,.bfe
watched with interest for if the elections
which are to furnish a basis for political
reorganization are held before the present
furore in his favor subsides, he can
doubtless have the highest honors the
new constitutional assembly can bestow
on him, merely for the asking.
The Meade, with the $3,000,000 in cash
on board, which is to be paid to the
Cuban soldiers, entered the harbor last
night and preparations are toeing pushed
for the disbursement of the money
through the agency of Gomez.
The military association held no meet
ing today as its members are hopelessly
demoralized and altogether at sea as to
their future programme. One result of
the assembly's discomfiture is already
apparent in the efforts being made to
secure the removal from office of the civil
governor of the city, Senor Mora, and the
superintendent of police, Gen. MariO
Menocal, both of whom are accused by
the Gomez faction of having shown un-,
due partisanship in trying to repress the
popular demonstration of last Monday.
At Gen. Brooke's headquarters at
Vedado it was said that Gen. Fife was
suffering from malarial fever, the relapse
of a trouble which he contracted last
summer at Santiago.
The First Texas and the Second Louis
iana are the next volunteer regiments jto
be sent home for mustering out. The la't
ter will sail for Savannah on Saturday,
the Ward line steamer Havana having
been chartered To transport the regiment
to the United States.
Chicago,jMarph 17.—Hazing as practic
ed at the 0 ^** 0 .college of dental »ur
gery may make James J. Mount of-the
class of 1903 an invalid for life if it does
not cause results even more serious. He
is now in trié Presbyterian hospital. The
cords of his jiçck are injured and the doc
tors think he has been hurt internally.
Mount is the victim of the custom of
"passing tup." '-'.Passing up" consists in
seizing a man in the class room and pass
ing him from one tier of seats to the one
above or bf'ow until the outer or inner
circle of* the seats occupied by the ôlase
during a clinic is reached. Then the vic
tim is started on a journey in the oppo
site direction.
Student Mount belongs to the freshman
class. He has been ill for some ti'me, but
during the hazing process he was tossed
back and forth from tier to tier of the
scats and then shot down to the floor,
where he lost consciousness. Mount's
parants reside in Petersburg, Ind. The
faculty of the college have suspended six
students for complicity in the hazing
and more are threatened.

San Francisco, March 17.—Word has
been received here from Berlin that Dr.
Wiegands managing director of the North
German Lloyd Steamship company, will
visit San Francisco. Dr. Wiepand was
in this city last October. He also visited
Tacoma and Seattle arid then went to Yo

The Hawaiian Princess is Dead
in Hon >lulu.
Incidents That Led Up to the Over
throw of Her Mother Some Years
Ago—Other Notes.
Honolulu, via San Francisco, Mardi 10.
—Princess Kaiulani died March 6th of in
flammatory rheumatism. In 1891 Kaiu
larii was proclaimed heir apparent to the
Hawaiian throne.
The funeral of the dead princess will
j occur on Sunday, March 12, from the old
j native church and will be under the di
j rection of the government. The cere
I monies will be on a scale becoming the
I rank of a young princess. The body is
Hying in State at Aniahu, the princess' old
I home. Thousands of people both native
and white have gone out to the palace
and the whole town is in mourning. Flags
on the government buildings are at half
mast, as are those on the residences of
the foreign consuls. Bishop Willis, of the
Church of England, will conduct the
funeral services.
All the Chinese in quarantine whose
permits from the old Hawaiian govern
ment are in good form will be allowed to
land in Honolulu without delay. '
This is the final decision of the matter
by the treasury department at Washing
The United States transport Roanoake
arrived from San Francisco on the 6th.
She sailed again yesterday after taking
on coal.
j The ship Edward O'Brien which reeent
I ly went ashore near this port was sold on
j the 2d for $550. her cargo bringing $675.
The vessel is a complete wreck.
Captain Harry McDaniel of Omaha,
who was present during the rebellion
which resulted In the overthrow of the
government of Quen Liluokalani and the
event which prevented Princess Kaiulani
from ascending the throne, speaks of the
, memorable fight as follows:
r "We found upon our arrival at Hono
jlulu that the .political aspect was not
very reassuring, as rumors were afloat
; that the natives were to overthrow the
j provisional government.
I "A few weeks later the citizens of
Honolulu were notified while at church
.that the natives were approaching the
; city to the number of several hundred,
:and a call to arms was made by Presi
dent Dole. Volunteers were plentiful.
Hind in a brief space of time several
companies were formed. Î volunteered
I my services, and being well up in tac
it ies, was personally assigned by Presi
dent Dole at the head of company B of
'the Hawaiian national guards,
j- "Tlie knowledge of the threatened
outbreak was conveyed through the
! medium of several gallons of gin which
: was supplied to the natives who were de
! tailed to clean a lot of Winchesters con
! coaled in a sandy beach a few miles from
Honolulu. The native fondness of gin
fled them to indulge beyond their capacity,
[ With the result that they got gloriously
idrunk and became involved in a fierce
ffight among themselves. Several shots
[were fired which attracted the attention
of Charles Carter, a wealthy plantation
! owner, who, in reconnoitering with a
I view of giving an alarm, was shot
and killed. Mr. Carter was the only
'white man killed in the revolution. The
news soon spread like wild fire and
i it was not long before we were under
double quick marching orders toward
' the scene of battle. Our combined forces
, only numbered two companies. We were
all anxious and eager to show what man
I ner of men wo were under fire and lost
(no time in reaching a commanding posl
Ition, where we opened fire upon the dark
skinned foes. The battle lasted for sev
Jeral hours and of course, resulted in our
j favor with a loss of fully one-third
of the natives dead, wounded or cap
tured, while our total loss amounted to
' only four men killed and three wounded.
I We pursued the natives, who fled to the
mountains, and then we camped in the
|Manoa valley for several days. The
hardships of camp life in that country to
an American unused to the vertical sun,
and tropical food, soon had a disastrous
! effect and thinned our numbers to a con
; siderable extent.
! "Even 'embalmed' beef would have
j been a most acceptable ration at that
! time in lieu of nothing else in sight.
! The cacti and lantana played havoc with
our uniforms.
j "Following the capture of the ring
i leaders came the surender of the native
I forces in large numbers and with it the
; grand finale of the tempest in a teapot,
as it was aptly termed, in the arrest of
, Quen Liluokalani. or as the provisional
i government officials dubbed her, 'Mrs.
! pomlnls.'
"President Dole detailed myself and
î two other officers to make the imperial
(arrest. There wer no elaborate cere
monies and the queen's arrest and con
viction are matters of history. 1 '
An Interesting Cnee
New York, March 17.—A special to the
Herald from Washington says: An in
teresting case has been presented to the
, nurt of claims by Judge Benedict, retir
! eJ. f ir the eastern district. Under the
; v Judge Benedict has been receiving
$5.000 retired pay. While he was on the
i bench the business of the southern dis
! tiict of New York became too heavy for
j the judge presiding and congress provid
I c-d tljQt trie criminal cçurtj of the South
' etr, district should be held by one of the
lodges of one of the other districts and
that judges assigned to hear these cases
should be paid $300 per term in addition
to trie regular pay. As there were six
criminal terms per year, this brought the
extra pay up to $1,800 per year. Judge
Benedict was assigned to hold these
courts and he has now brought suit in
the court of claims for raised pay at the
rate of $6.800 per year on the ground that
that was the salary he received while on
the bench.
Charges Against a Commissioner
Pan Francisco, March 17.—D. W. Sem
ple of Dawson City, business manager of
the Klondike Nugget, is in this city en
toute to Ottawa, Ont., formally to pre
sent charges against ex-Gold Commis
sioner Thomas Fawcett. His mission is
the outcome of a persistent and uncom
promising attack upon the methods and
practices of the office from which Faw
cett was recently removed. He is still
chief of survey, however, and front this
lilaee his removal will be asked. A de
mand will also be made for Fawcett's pro
secution on a number of charges of alleg
ed official misconduct.
It Created Consternation
New York, March 17.—A dispatch to the
Herald from Berlin says: A Washington
telegiam saying that Mr. White will be
appointed commissioner to the corning
peace conference has caused a feeling
nearly approaching consternation in the
embassy. The ambassador knew nothing
of it and seeing the number of matters
coming up just now between Germany
and the United States, the report was not
San Francisco, March 17.—The rain
storm which began on Tuesday has
reached the southern counties of the
sitate, relieving the anxiety of the farm
ers of that section. A great industry in
San Bernardino and Ventura counties is
beet raising and the present tain fall has
assured large crops. Hay and grass will
now be plentiful and cattlemen are cor
respondingly happy. Mines which last
year were closed down on account of lack
of water, will be able to run the-entire
slimmer, as there is plenty of snow in tiie
mountains and the streams are full. Fruit
trees also have been greatly helped by
the s'torm. The rain of the past three
days has been of vast benefit to Califor
nia and its value in resultant crops will
amount to millions of dollars.
Two Large f reight Steamers
San Francisco, March 17.—The Union
lion works has just been awarded the
contract for two of the largest freight
steamers ever built in the United States.

delphia, San Francisco and Honolulu,
with the possibility of extending the
route. The first steamer is to. be turned
out in April. 1900, and the second one at
a later date. Plach will have a carrying
capacity of 8,500 tons. The first vessel
will be 410 feet long, with 51 feet beam
and a depth of 22 feet. Her engines are to
develop 2,500 horse power.
( liangou Id Kali Teams
Chicago, March 17.—The Tribune says:
Frank De Haas Robison will take his
Cleveland national league baseball club
to St. Louis and Tom Loftus will occupy
Cleveland with his Columbus western
league team. The national league circuit
can now be reduced to ten clubs without
difficulty and the settlement of one of the
most perplexing problems which ever
confrontd the magnates is at hand. Tom
Loftus, 14 is said, has secured an option
on the Browns from Gustav Grüner, who
bid in the St. Louis club at the sheriff's
sale Tuesday. He will nominally buy
the club and will then permit Robi'son to
vacate Cleveland and go to St. Louis in
return for allowing the Co Ami bus club of

stamping giound of the Spiders.
