The ninety days allowed Venezuela

for the arrest of the English officials
Barnes and Baker on the Uruan river
In December 3894 has expired The
government will not speak officially I
but the highest authority is given for
the statement that Venezuela refused
to pay the indemnity declaring that
the question of the arrest and the
boundary dispute cannot be separated
To pay the indemnity would be to
recognize British sovereignty over Ven

I is believed here that unless Julian
Pauncefote and Minister Andrada can
arrange matters satisfactorily in
Washington England will use force to
collect the money treating the arrests
as distinct from the boundary

WASHINGTON March 6At the
opening of the session of the house to
day a bH was passed on motion of
Mr Overstreet Rep Ind to abolish
the cash payment of pensions The pur
pose of the bill is to prevent the swind
ling of old veterans who draw their
pension money at the agencies on the
quarterly pay days Correspondence
with the agencies show that many
pensioners draw their pensions in cash
and their families complain that they
get no benefit from the money This
bill requires all pensions to be paid

Bitter Root mountains in 1893
Mr Wilson Rep Idaho objected

citizen die of Idaho and had left him to
The house then resumed the consider
ation of the remaining features of the
amendment to the legislative bill to
abolish the fee system In the case of
United States attorneys and marshals
After some unimportant amendments
had been adopted the legislative bill
was passed
The house then took up the consider
ation of the postoffice appropriation
bill Mr Loud Rep Cal chairman
of the committee which was in charge
of the bill explained its provisions The
bill is the largest of the annual sup
ply bills I carries 91943577 2847142
less than the estimates but 2377760
more than the current law carried
Mr Quigg Rep N Y asked
whether it would be possible under the
provisions of the present bill for the
postoffice department to continye
what he denominated
for the surveillance over carriers etc
Mr Loud in reply explained that
the committee did not desire any official
cial of the government to embark in
new enterprises and therefore the ap
propriation used by the first assistant
postmaster general to employ inspec
tors had been segregated so that money
could not be used by him for that
purpose But Mr Loud said he agreed
with the first assistant postmaster gen
eral fully as to the principle of ade
quate supervision of the postal ser
vice He thought i would benefit the
whole service but the committee had
decided that i was not desirable to
divide the inspecting force and had
therefore cut off the force under the
first assistant postmaster general and
increased the regular force under the
fourth assistant postmaster general by
inspectors making provision for thirty additional
In further explaining the bill Mr
Loud said The amount for railroad
transportation of mails had been re
duced from 29000000 to 27500000 and
the reduction had been made In the
hope and expectation that his bill to
amend the postal laws relating to sec
ond class mail matter which had been
extensively discussed shall become a
law In answer to a question he stated
he would press that bill it possible to
a vote
Without completing the general de
bate the committee rose and at 5 oclock
a recess was taken until 8 oclock the
evening sesion to be devoted to the con
sideration of private pension bills

Joseph Pullltzer of the New York
World has received the following
statement of the policy of Spain on
the position of congress on the Cuban
insurrection which he gives for gen
eral publication to the Associated
NEW YORK March GThe World
will print tomorrow the following au
I wr
thentic statement p f tlie policy of Spain
as to Cuba t ian congress from Prime
Minister Canovas Hr is accompanied
by a personal message to Joseph Pu
litzer fronYthe president of the council
of state at Madrid authorizing its pub
lication The statement is as follows
Madrid March 6We have a yet
010 official notification of the intention
of the American government and can
not therefore take cognizance of or pro
test by note against any of the pro
ceedings of the senate and house of
representatives of the United States
We have taken no official notice what
ever of the proceedings and speeches in 1
Washington during the past week 1
Nor have we sounded the European
powers or courts regarding their sup
port in any form All we have done
is to show to the American government
and to Minister Taylor that we have
endeavored to enforce respect for the
American legation and consulates re
pressing so sternly the disturbances
that we had ordered the Madrid Granada
nada Barcelona and Valencia univer
sities closed and we will close all uni
versities schools and establishments
whose students dare t make demon
strations hostile to the United States
We will send to prison and prompt
trial all authors and promoters of such
disturbances We believe they are
prompted by the advanced republicans
cansNothing will be omitted on our side
to show our desire to preserve cordial
relations with America I am convinc
ed that we possess sufficient means to
quell any hostile demonstrations The
government of Spain regrets and has
made all the amends possible for the
manifestation already made of the in
dignation which the speeches at Wash
ington naturally excited among the
ever loyal people of Spain
The situation now is one of ex
treme delicacy Indeed I cannot define
how far i is possible for the govern
ment of Spain to permit amicable and
careful mediation of a foreign power
however honorable and disinterested it
may be without incurring the
grave risk of being accused of submit
ting to outside interference pressure
and dictation In the midst of a civil
war The United States is a great
power and until they recognize the
object and encourage the aims of the
insurrectionists in Cuba they are
friendly to Spain After the recogni
tion of the belligerents in Cuba by the
United States it would be impossible
for the government of Spain > to accept
the good office of President Cleveland
ever or to permit any interference what
Nevertheless I still hope some means
will be found by the president to avoid
alienating the friendly relations with
the United States Which Spain ha
shown this week that she prizes highly
I am fully alive to the significance
and the possible consequences of thp
vote of the United States congress to
the rebels a well as to Spain in her
relations with the United States and
especially in connection with the rights
of search on the high seas and in the
matter expeditions of privateers and filibustering
The only now and seemingly war
like preparations yet made by Spain
are made simply with a view to equip
ping a fleet of warships and transAt
lantic steamers to chase filibusters and
to guard the coasts of Cuba That is
the sole object in view General Weyler
having said he had enough troops only
the usual reliefs will be sent to Cuba
until autumn and no naval demonstra
tion is contemplated
The elections will not interfere with
the action of the government ay it
intends to conduct them in a tolerant
spirit for all parties fair representa
tion being arranged for even the West
India constituencies Besides in every
imperial anfl International question the
Spaniards have always shown a pat
riotic spirit
The misapprehension concerning
General Weylers character and meth
ods as a soldier originated in a mis
statement of facts in his career and
of his assignments and instructions
both in Cuba twenty years ago and the
Phillippine islands Since then Weyler
has only carried out the orders of his
chiefs Before he l f for Cuba the
last time I saw and spoke to him and
approved his views Consequently he
ha simply acted in harmony with the
requirements of this war in which the
insurgents have not only set at de
fiance the rules of civilized warfare
but have violated the provisions of the
treaty of 1705 between Spain and the
United States and the protocol of 1S77
respecting the lives and the property
of all real and alleged American citizens
zens in Cuba I am determined to
carry out the administrative political
reforms already voted by the courts
as oon as the pacification of the island
permits and even such economic tariff
reforms as may be consistent with the
interests of both the colony and the
mother country
But it is impossible to attempt re
forms during a civil war or under any
foreign pressure in the present condi
tion of the island
When Marshal Campos was sent to
Cuba as governorgeneral the govern
ment would certainly have allowed
him to institute the reforms i he had
deemed them advisable to do so We
cannot admit that the slightest ground
exists for the recognition of the
recogniion of bel
ligerency of the Cuban insurgents

of Santa Lucia and the members of
his executive council are nomads like

The train was decorated with stream

WASHINGTON March 6After a
vacation of two weeks the senate com
mittee on Pacific railroads today re
sumed consideration of the Pacific rail
way debt question Huntington was
present but Senator Morgan was ab
sent at the beginning of the hearing
John Rooney representing junior bond
holders was permitted to file a brief
in opposition to the plans heretofore
offered for the reorganization of the
Pacific roads He advocated the con
solidation of Union Pacific and Central
Pacific assessments on subordinate in
terests for cash payment of the first
and second mortgages and for the man
agement by government commissioners
of the foreclosure and reorganization
of these properties
When Morgan appeared a linguistic
contest between himself and Hunting
ton began The senator began Imme
diately by asking Huntington as to his
objection to the Pattison report
Huntington replied that he objected
to i as a whole He admitted that he
had been before the commission but
contended the commission had certain
theories to work out and did not pay
much attention to his statements
I know he said all about the
building of the Central Pacific
I is not so much about the build
ing of the road replied Morgan we
want to know as about what was
made of it
We did not responded Huntington
make any more than a few were allowed
lowed to make under the statutes
Continuing as to the division of the
proceeds he said he could divide what
two were interested in exactly in the

are on one side and the people on the

I is charged by men who have
written to me men a good as I am
Then they are good men
Huntington then asserted with much
emphasis that he neither found any of
Coltons papers in the house nor de
stroyed any of them
Huntington was examined a to his
partnership with Mark Hopkins in the
hardware business in San Francisco
He declared the hardware business
was In no way connected as partner
ship with the railway business The
firm he said loaned money to the railroads
roads also bought railroad securities
which were divided between them as
individuals He said Morgan was ask
ing to much when he asked him to
give details of business transacted
thirtyfive years ago There ha been
no general settlement of his and Hop
kins account upon the latters death
but Mrs Hopkins had gone on a the
representative of her husbands inter
ests In the railroads
Mr Huntington said in reply to ques
tions that he had considerable means
outside f that invested in the hardware
business which he put into the con
struction of the Central Pacific He
could not however remember how
much actual money he had put into
that construction Still he was confi
dent the amount was considerable He
had bought he thought about 2000
shares of the stock at the rate ell 100
per share before the road reached New
castle He had also put money into the
Contract and Finance company by
which the road was continued
More than 5000000 had been put into
that company by himself and his asso
ciates but much of the money had been
borrowed some of it on the government
bonds He resented with some show of
indignationa question tending to show
that it was the government and not the
company who had conducted the con
struction saying that the company
with resources legitimately placed at
their command had constructed i He I
added that the company had built
thirtyone miles of the road without
any government assistance I
Mr Morgan complained in this con I
nection that Mr Huntington was to
much inclined to give opinions and not I I
facts but Mr Huntington contended
Huntngton I
that he was giving all the facts he
said He said that 740 miles of the
road had been built in seven years
that 25000000 in bonds had been re
ceived from the government that first
mortgage bonds were issued for S25
000000 more and that there were 60 I
000000 worth of stock He said he would r
not do the work again fo twice the ri i
amount he received Taking up the re 1
port of the Pattison commission Mr I
Huntington said that part of the road
west of Ogden from Bomieville Table t
Promontory mountain had cost accord
ing to General Dodge 57000 per mile
whereas the commission had put the i
price at 40000 He gave this as an illustration I
lustration of the inaccuracies of the
commissions report This part of the
road had been built by the Union Pa
cific and afterwards been purchased by j
the Central Pacific for the purpose of j
getting into the Salt Lake valley j I
Mr Huntington said the road paid 1
well for the first ten years and until
the Atchison and Northern Pacific had i
come in a competitors i
Mr Morgan askedwhy the dividends
had not been put into a sinking fund
and used in paying the government and j
first mortgage debt to which Mr
Huntington replied that it might have I I
been done except for the novelty of
it Such things are never done if I
he added the stock was entitled to i
its dividend Furthermore the gov I
ernment had Interfered with the pur
pose to do this through the Thurman
act Mr Huntington said he could
not remember how much money he had j I
received on account of the dividends I I
but he did not think the amount was i
large H thought the dividends had I
never exceeded 10 per cent I ap
peared upon examination that Mr
Huntington obtained his dividends
principally through his interest in the
Finance and Contract company He ad
mitted that this company had used a
part of its assets in building other
roads but these were built in the best
interest of the Central Pacific com
pany The Contract and Finance com
pany had begun to sell its stock when
it began to appreciate and this was
done in order to pay the debts which
amounted to from 9000000 to 12000
000 They had disposed of a great deal
of the stock for this purpose The price
of the stock sold had ranged In price
from 19 to 35 cents Senator Morgan
referred to the fluctuations in the stock
as the result of manipulation but Mr
Huntington took exception to the use
of the word He said there had been
no manipulation and this is noba
proper word to use
Mr Huntington said he had sold I
stock paying a dividend for 19 cents
on the dollar but declared in reply
to a question that this was not done
to break the market He also declared
that this was not remarkable and that
he had made the sale because he
wanted money
Did you tell your broker to sell a
low down as he could get
That is a question replied Mr
Huntington that the senator should
not that ask me But I did not tell him
Mr Huntington said that so far a
he knew these low sales had no effect
on the Union Pacific stock He had
sold no Central Pacific stock to bear
the Union Pacific
Then what did you sell for asked
Mr Morgan
To pay my debts
To whom were you indebted
To those from whom I had bor
rowed money
Who were they I
Those who had let me have money
Mr Huntington then declared that
he did not know who his creditors

tomorrow I I

What the Wonderful New Invention
May Show RcjyJirdlnj Things TFC
Already Know
I Is an astounding discovery one
of the most marvelous of the present
aseI was in those words that an emi
nent scientist lately referred to the
new and wonderful invention in pho
tography which everybody is discuss
ing The great invention as most people
pIe are aware enables photographers
to take pictures of objects completely
hidden from sight In a recent experi
ment for instance a portrait of a man
Wa secured although he was sepa
rated from the photographer by a
threeinch partition In another case
a picture was obtained of all the bones
muscles blood vessels and internal or
gans in a mans body
In sneaking of this wonderful dis
covery a wellknown New York physi
cian recently said I thousands of
people who are walking the streets
today and attending to business could
only see a photograph of their internal
organs they would be filled with alarm
and dread They would see their liver
and kidneys clogged with impurities
and their blood filled with deadly se
cretions which poison the whole sys
tem They would see these delicate
organs slowly but surely giving way
under this corroding poisoning influ
ence Oh what an effect such a plc
ture would have
The doctor is perfectly right but at
the same time there are thousands of
people who need no photograph to toll
them that there is something wrong
with their health They know that
they do not feel as well as they ought
to feel They complain of tired feel
ings nervousness headaches back
aches stomach troubles constipation
and dull heavy sensations They feel
miserable but do not know why they
suffer It Is only the skilled physician
who knows that these symptoms are all
caused by the liver and kidneys being
out of order When these
great or
gans of the body fail to act properly
the health speedily breaks down
It was a knowledge of this import
ant fact that led to one of the greatest
discoveries of modern times For long
years the brightest men in the medi
cal profession sought for a remedy
which would cure all these derange
ments of the liver and kidneys and at
last they succeeded in finding it This
great remedy which has proven a
blessing to thousands Is Warners Safe
Cure a remedy that today Is known
and honored all over the world No
other remedy has ever equalled It for
making weak rundown people feel
strong and well It is universally ad
mitted to be the safest and best rem
edy for curing every form of liver and
kidney disease It puts an end to
stomach troubles purifies and enriches
the blood and restores lost vitality
This great Safe Cure is not an ex
periment It has been in use for over
twenty years and has been the means
of saving millions of lives It is the
only remedy prescribed by the worlds
leading physicians No other remedy
compares with It for building up the
system and imparting new life to every
part of the body
