the illepublican members, Mr. De Ar Uiond continued: "Is this subject worthy of considera tion" Is it worth while for the Repre sentatives of the American people to declare what they think about the situ ation in Cuba? Is it worth while for them, when, even' day, reports in the newspapers bring: most harrowing de tails' of suffering and wrong, to consid er whether anything shall be done? Shall we fiddle while Home is burning, because some little rule is invoked. TV-hen principles so high, glorious, and holvare involved in the consideration? It would be more orderly and more seemly if the resolution looking to the recognition of Cuban belligerency were notconnected -with this hill, hut for months it has slept in some secret place in the room of the Committee on Foreign delations. The mighty power of the Speaker and the acquiescence of youjgentlemen on the other side in the "suppression of this matter on which your constituents as well as mine want you Jo consider is responsible for this condition. "What hope have we that the bonds will he broken and the despotic power will be loosened so that we will be per mitted to consider here the things which our constituents demand shall be considered, and -which, in the name of justice and right, ought to be consid ered? "The attitude of this Government in respect to matters in Cuba has been shameful: it is a discrace to American manhood and an insult to American patriotism. "EiTorts have been directed for use by this Government and by the agen cies which control it today to sive to the people of Cuba, who are strug gling Tor their independence, something called autonomy. The Government can Interfere, it can terminate by a mes sage" of its President, the action of a "Weyler. who starves and butchers, but what does it do? It lends its good c.f-flee-A.o bring about autonomy; to give to the Cuban patriots who have en dured everything possible for a human being to endure and survive, not the independence for which they are strug gling, but a mockers, a sham, a cruel ty, called autonomy. "The representatives of the people have not had an opportunity to speak, and "to raise their voices in judgment upon this giat and burning question. And the question before the House to day is whether we . shall, as Ilepre. sentatlves, surrender our just rights, committed to us by our constituents, or whether we shall assert ourselves, and be five, or whether we shali b held in the shackles of these rules, and of th man who chooses to use these rules for mir suppression. It will rot d for us. as Representatives, to go back to our conslItT'ontb and soy. "I was in favor of recognising a state of war in Cuba, but the rules of the body of which 1 am a member hampered me. The Speaker of that body chose not to hae it put into that &ody for consid eration. ' Mr. De Armoud was i tre interrupt ed, and a running discussion of a lively kind ensued. After Mr. "De Arniond again got the attention of the House he concluded his speech bj saying that he thought the present-Administration of the Govern ii'ant had acted in a shamerul manner, and disgraced American manhood. "The amendment 1 have offered," he s-aid, "is mie to incorpmste in this bill a decimation of recognition of a state of war in Cuba between the .Cubans and Spaniards. That amendment is of fered at this time and "dace for the reason that there has mt been, and will nia he. -mother opportunity during this session, and a- this question is an im portant one 1 think it should be donf. I am not going to contend that it v. ill not be the duty of the chair to rule the amendment out of order, and therefoie I shall very respectfully .ippeal from the d?cisjon of the chair- ' Mr. Dingley then said that however much he ""m'ght favor the legislation proposed bs Mr. De Armond, he was not willing to overthrow the rules of the House in order to aecompl'sh a par tisan purpose. Mr- Lewis, of "Washington, aiose to speak on the point of or Jr-f. He insist ed that Um? amendment was not only germane, but was sustained bj- a prece dent which was precisely parallel to the one offered bs the gentleman from Missouri. He stated that on the ninth dav of February, 1S21. Homy Clay of fered an amendment to an appropria tion hill, recognizing a small Central American republic in its efforts to gain independence from Spam, and he con cluded that this was a distinct prece- dent that tould well b followed now. Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, said that CATARRH OF THE STOMACH. A Tien-ant, Simple,, Hut Safe Ef fectual Cure for It. . Galarrli of tlie stomach has long leen considered the next thing lo incurable. Tlie usual symptoms arc a full or Moating reni-alHin aOer eating, accompanied some t uties wilh sour or watery -rlEings- a formation of gases, causing pressure on Hie ucan- and lungs, and difficult breath ing: headache, fickle appetite, nervous ness, atl a general played out, languid feeling. There is often a foul taste in the mouth, coated tongue, aud ir the interior of the rtomactt cmkl he seen it would show a bliuiy, inflamed condition. The cure for this common and obstinate trouble I found in a treatment which causes Hie food to he readily, thoroughly digested i"erorc it has time to ferment and irritate the delicate mucous surfaces of th stomach. To secure a prompt and healthy di gestion is-llie one necessary thing to do, ami -when normal digestion is secured the catarrhal condition will have disap peared. According to -Dr. Harlanson the sarest and Itest .treatment is to ube after each mea? a tablet, composed of Diastase, Aseptic Pepsin, a little Nux, Golden Seal and fnfil acids. Tlie-e tablets can now be found at all drug stores under the name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, and, not being a pat ent medicine, can le ued with perfect safety and assurance that healthyappctite and thorough digestion will follow their regular iw after meals. Mr- X. .1- Booher, of "710 Dcarlorn St.. Chicago.

Mr. Colson, of Kentucky, in a. very spirited speech, said: "There is no question of the right of the great American people taking action In re gard to Cuba. We have delayed too long. The history of the Cuban insur rection will forever remain a black page in the records of the nineteenth century, and the fact that the Fifty fifth Congress has taken no action, will forever remain to the discredit of this Congress. "When will the Oommltttee on For eign Affairs allow the House of Repre sentatives to vote on this question? I shall vote in this instance to oppose the decision of the chair, and I warn ms Republican colleagues that thes have deferred consideration of this question too long already, and that the Ameri can people will hold us responsible for our failure to take action in this mat ter, if we do not terminate this un hols warfare, I shall expect lo see the next House of Representatives have In it mans faceu we do not see here todas. I also warn my Republican colleagues that unless tlie Committee on Foreign -Affairs .gives this question a chance to be acted upou, I am one who join in the most revolutionary tactics to get an expression of this House." Tlie vote on the appeal stood lf2 for the ailirmalive, and 114 for the nega tive. The- decision of the chair, was thus sustained, and. the lower house of the Fift-Iiftli Congress went op record as opposed to tlie patriot struggle for liberty in Cuba. In the course of the debate the ques tion was put -to the Republican side plainly. "Do you intend at any time during the present -session to give members an opportunits to vote on the question of Cuban belllgerencs?" and the quers was evaded. , Speaking for his colleagues, one of the Democratic members said: "I would he willing to refrain from a vote upon the question of order, as the gentleman frqm Missouri intimates he wmld, if it were within a reasonable expectation that the naked question of Cuban belligorencs would ever be pre sented to the consideration of this House. And I stand here now on be half of this side and pledge ourselves that we will withdraw this amendment if the gentleman from Illinois (Mr. Hitt) will rise in his place and sas that within a reasonable' time he will pre sent the Senate resolution. "Will lie do it? "He is as silent as the Republican parts has wanted him to be upon this question. Thes have prom ised oei' and over again that this question should be met. "Vh sir, the distinguished gentleman from Ohio, when we were trying to- force tlie con sideration, of ibis .question during the extraordinars session, assured us, or, rather, assuredthe eountrs. with some thing of dramatic effect, that in his own good time the President would take this matter up and settle it to the satisfaction of the American people, "What inlluence that assurance may have had upon the House I am unable to determine, but I do know that either under that assurance or under a. whip and lash, more'" powerful with the oth er side of the House than the assurance of the President's friend from Ohio, in some was Republicans who had prc fesse the friendliest interest in Cuba were deterred from joining us in pro curing her a hearing." Mr. Lewis, of Washington, took part in the debate on the question of whether Mr. De Armond's amendment was germane or not and cited a prece dent to prove that it was. He said: "The gentleman from Maine insists on his point of order that the amendment offered by this gentleman from Mis souri is not germane. In order to sus tain himself, he asserts that there is not a gentleman on this side of the House who will contend that the amendment is germane or sustained by precedent, joi. jusii(ied,Js anj practice of this House. For myself I assert that the amendment is not onls germane but is sustained bs a precedent precisely parallel w hich arose on the floor of this House vnH was sustained under ex actly similar conditions as is the one offered, .bv. the- gentleman from Mis souri, and I accept, deferentialls of course, the challenge of the gentleman from Maine. "1 invite the attention of the mem bers of the House to the fact that on tlie 9th of February, 1S12 (latighter) an appropriation bill Mr. Chairman, I do not marvel at this mirth. Everything anc ient in liberty and fixed in justice is ever sneered at bj- the other side (Laughter and applause bs the Demo cratic side.) "I repeat that on the 9th of Februars, 1S12. upon an appropriation bill pre sented in this House proposing an ap propriation for tlie consular service and foreign relations, Henrs Clas offered an amendment which I will now read." The amendment read bs Mr. Lewis was substantialls similar to the one offered bs Mr. De Armond. Others who took part in the debate were Island, Dinsmore, Simpson, Ding les, Cannon, and Hitt.

Tlie cohvict", who was" eating his din ner, suddenly jumped from the table and stabbed the deputy warden twice, before he could even draw Ills" revolver.

The most persistent rumors floated around the corridors of the State, War and Navy building s'esterdas afternoon relating ch-iefly to the cutting of the cable between Ives "West and Havana. Some of these rumors originated in Washington and others came from New York, the result of both being. an in finite number of inquiiies at the three departments as to ihe truth of the ru mors. It is not at all unlikely that the State Department was a little shaky itself as to the truth or falsity of the news. It is believed that It demonstrated the fal sity of the news by sending a cable message to Consul General .Lee. A re sponse was received at 2 p. m. precisely from Gen. Lee, which contained the in formation that ull was quiet. A dis patch had been received in the morn ing from Havana by Minister Dupuy de Lome, but that was not conclusive that the cable was intact, as the break ing or the cutting might have occurred after the receipt of the dispatch to tlie Spanish legation. The rumor has its uses, however, be cause it lias started a great deal of gossip as being a fancy that might at any time become a fact. It was stated that cither a Spaniard or Cuban fanatic might cut the cable to precipitate mat ters. It certainly would precipitate ac tion because it is very well understood that as soon as it is known that one end of the cable has been dropped the Maine and the Montgomery will start at once for Havana. Thes will reach Havana In about four hours and a half. If the fleet should be in the neighbor hood at the time of the accident or the design on the cable it will require about eight hours for the news to get to the fleet and for it to make the- run -to Havana. Neither the Maine nor the Montgom ery will wait a moment to inquire what causes the break in the cable, and what the result of these vessels going there, no matter what causes the break, it is difficult to foresee. Everybody has at teast come to the conclusion that it will tnk a verv little fire to burn away the barrier that now stands between Amer ica and Spain and a naval hgnt in sight of Moro Castle. THE CABINET AND HA VAXA. A Statement iindo After Keeelviimu Letter From De Lome. The supreme sen; of satisfaction which , is patent in every declaration or Cabinet m,..rS -u-iipt, t.-.iuintr about the fcituatlon In Havana is a guarantee that they do ! not meditate any hasty interference in , Siuiilsh-Cuban affairs. There was a short j Ca binet mectim; yesterday, at which three i subjects were' considered-Cuba, Hawaii, as to anne.a(ion, and Hawaii -with rela- j tion to the visit to this country of Presi- ( dent Dole, of that republic. ' '" j One of the Ca timet officers said yes- j terday, utter the meeting of the Cabinet, i that the situation in Havana had been ( under dl&ousslon. He said that the Can hiel had been amply satisfied as to the j condition or afiairs in Havana, me i-resi-dent and his fcecretaiies expect nothing of a serious nature to occur in the near future, this quiescent Btate of mind of the Cabinet being induced by the repre sentations of Consul General Lee and by the dispatchco which come very frequently from Havana to the State Department through the .Spanish legation. The Spanish legation has evidently been much stirred up by the stn tcmentb made by the newspaper.., and which are gen erally credited, that there has been an unnecessary and unexplained delay in the delivery of supplies shipped to Havana for the suffeimg Cubans. It has been stated that the row In Havana a week ago blew over in very .short order, owing to the prompt meat-tires taken by the Spanish mill! 'try, yet it isargued very naively that the delay, which Is admitted even by Gen. Lee, was caused by rioting- It has appeared to all readers of newspapers that when tlie suffering really meant the death daily of score of people, that the sup plies should have been rushed forward with all possible expedition. The fact that the report of the delay got out has moved the Spanish minister to an immediate explanation of the same. He wrote to the State Department yesterday this explanation, which was received in time to be of service at the Cabinet meeting. Based on Minister Dupuy de Lome's let ter and information furnished by Consul General Lee, the State Department yes terday furnished the following for publi cation. "Minister de Lome lias written to the Department of State, denying the report that obstacles have been thrown in the way by the Havana customs house to the laud ing of supplies for Cubau sufferera. This, together with other information in posses sion of the President, fully justifies the statement made yesterday by the Secretary of State, and given to the press, tliatall sup plies for Cuban sufferers will be promptly landed in Cuba and properly distributed." As to the Hawaiian matter.it was stated that the Cabinet considered it only in a general way, aud with reference to' the chances of legislation in thu Senate, und failing there, in the Senate and the House, on a bill, as in the case of the annexation of Texas. Tlie question of the manner of the iecep tlon of President Dole, of the Hawaiian re publie, was discussed, and it was decided that Mr. Dole be the guest of the nation. Instructions weie issued for thepreparatious to be made by the State, "A'ar and Navy Departments. "Mniico's lteport to De Lome. Captain General Blanco )aS sent an of ficial dispatch to Senor Dupuy de-Lome, Spanish minister here, in -which he says that Sunday having"passedln perfect quiet ness, and there being no evidence ot.ox citement yesterday, he considers the af fair entirely over, and has had the 'troops which were on the streets returned, to their quarters.

MORGAN DESCRIBES IT lie Sliowh the Advantages Now En joyed 1)3" Its Use. Nicaragua Cnnnl, If Finished, Would He Practically UhHcms Without. Hits Islands Mntiiiti'.- Work Cited. Vor more than two hojkiri; Senator Alor Ban, of Alabama, discussed the Hawaiian annexation treaty yesterday afternoon, and when he fihisheij.for tlrj day, lie rad not concluded the speech which he began last weeH. Almost the whole of the' time yesterday was .spent by the Senator in a difCiisiou of the military and?btratc;lc importance . of Hie I "lands and ha re-enforced hih own opinions with ouotaions from the reports of military cngiueerrf'of this country aud the writers or other nations. Mr. Morgan found a great dealfto jjtipport, his con tention in the worklbt Cajit. Mahan, the well-Known naval qfficcrj'who'has writ ten a book that isnv, standard of naval matters tile wtfrlU over. HKcttntloirfrOnr the writings of thK'navaC officer were copious and interesting to the Senate, many of the members never having taken the time to familiarize thcmmlve with the observations of thiKliterary officer. It wan with ret.poet to lt relations to the Nicaragua Canal that Mr. Morgan ex pressed the most concern. It this canal were to be built, it would, he contended, be practically useless with the islands in tlie hands; of a foreign power, and In time of war the utter folly of a failure to take i c Islands would then manifest itself It would, he contended, be useless for this Government to build thi.s canal, much Ie.-h seek to maintain and defend it, it the Hawaiian Inlands were not under the Stars and Stripes, The commerce of the world would pass through that canal, and the nation that controlled thai canal and the Hawaiian Islands would be absolutu masters of the Pacific, and control the highways of travel on that great body of water. Without these islands the United States would be powerless to work out its own destiny, and would lie equally power less to present the interference of other powers if they saw fit to resent; the en croachment of American trade and com merce In the East. The Senator gave the Senate a mag nificent description or Pearl Harbor, which is now the property of the United States Tor naval purposes under treaty rights, but which would be lost if the islands were taken under the protecting wing of some other power. During his recent visit to the islands Mr. Morgan devoted much ot his time to an investigation of this harbor. He found it all that had been reported, and read to the Senate extracts from officii! leports going to show that It could be easily defended, and that no where else could a fleet land; that, by a little dredging, it would be capable or holding tlie fleets or the world, and would afford a safe and sure retreat to the ships or tlie power that held it in time of war. There is no doubt hue the debate on the treaty is fast drawing to it additional strength. Men who have been supposed to be hesitating are beginning to express views, and every man who has hitherto been on the doubtful list lias begun to doubt the wisdom or failing to annex the islands. The opponents of annexation have made no headway, and the friends of annexation are meeting with more en couragenient every day. jWhen the -vote will be takpn is a question that cannot be answered, bur, it is thought that at least two weeks more will be'Ucvoted to the discussion.
