fount of the loading of the tujarAlex t
ander Jones and her departure with
the schooner John D Long on a Cuban
filibustering expedition The facts were
obtained from a member of the crw
of the Alexander Jones which returned
to port several days ago His story
substantially is as followu
On Thursday night May 13 the Tones
took on a cargo of rifles machetes
rapid firing guns and ammunition at
the wharf of the Wilmington New
bern Xorfolk railway in the southern
limits of the city Before she had en
tirely finished her carg a report was
started that officers were approaching
and hat the revenue cutter Morril was
getting up steam Taking alarm at
this the Jones pulled out and started
down the river at 1Q45 p m and ia a
few hours crossed the bar and anchored
outside The schooner John D Long
having meanwhile been loaded with
coal and other material at the Wilmington
mington and Weldon railroad wharf
was shortly afterwards towed out to
sea by the tug Jacob Brandon going
past the revenue cutter Colfax On the
schooner were General Munez and
another officer of the Cuban army a
Cuban pilot and Captain Jonn OBrien
of the filibustering tug Dauntless At
the sea buoy they went on board the
Jones anchored near by and Captain
i OBrien took charge of the expedition
IA hawser was made fast from the
Jones to the schooner and early Friday
morning the tug steamed to the south
with her tow The Jacob Brandon r
turned to Southport
On the way down the coast no port
was entered but off Palm Beach on I
the coast of Florida 62 Cubans weie
taken on board The Jones then towed
the schooner to the Bahamas and in
the vicinity anchored in the open sea
on May 18 On May 20 the filibuster
Dauntless hove in sight and came
alongside the Jones and the schooner
She coaled from the schooner took a
cargo of arms from the Jones and
with Captain OBrien in command
headed for the Cuban coast about 60
miles away She left the Jones between
8 and 9 oclock Thursday night made a
successful landing in Cuba near Mat
anzas and after an abseqcc of 24 hours
reture to the Jones and went on
board the Dauntless and accompanied
Captain OBrien
When the Dauntless left with her
second cargo the Jones coaled from the I
schooner towed her off Cape Canaveral
Fla and turned her loose She sailed
back and got into Southport yesterday
The cargo carried out of h r was I
valued at isuuu ana is saio to nav
I been the second largest ever landed In
I The member of the crew above re i

Plunder of the Manhattan Savings
Bank Bobbed by Jimmy Rope
Offered t the Bank For a Reward
New York May 20 Nineteen years ago
the country was startled by the report I
of the bIggest bank burglary know in
the history of the world It occurred I
Sunday October Z JS7S The Manhattan
Savings Institution of this city was I I
robbed of securities estimated at 221iW
and 11000 in cash
With the execution of a few bonds
offered for sale some time ago none of
the securities have been recovered I
was believed that they had been buried
or destroyed
That the securities arc still in existence
Is known here A short time ago ne
gotiations were opened between men said
10 represent the burglars and President
Joseph Bird of the Manhattan Savins
Institution for their return
The burglars have made a demand for
JoQUOO and no questions to be asked with
the understanding that the securities are
to be handed over in good shase and
that Immediately upon their delivery the
money shell be paid In cash President
Bird who at the time of the robbery was
paying teller of the Manhattan Savings
Institution said today that foiOOO had
been asked for the return of the bonds
and although the bank officials would
like to get them back he declared they I
would not pay the amount asked Con 1
tinuing Mr Bird said
Many of the securities are worthless
today I should say since the government
came to our assistance some time ago by I 0
an act of congress authorizing the secre
tary of the treasury to reissue duplicates I I
In place of the stolen United States bonds i
There were a number efS other bonds I
issued by cities and corporations 1 I
pc efh I foJ
course we would like to have the origin
His as it would make i easier for us to
collect the moneys Involved
I refer particularly to the Yonkers
City 7 per cent coupon bonds There were
J118000 Yorkers bonds stolen and out Ot
I that amount we have received J9SOOO
I which leaves SJOOOO due SO I
i Mr Bird stated that he believed the
I offer to be made in good faith and the
case has been placed In the hands of the I
banks counsel Those who rtcipated
In or were connected with tre robbery i
were Jimmy Hope John Hope Patrick

Washington May 30The impression
was general about the senate at the
close of the first weeks discussion of the
tariff bill yesterday that the sugar
schedule would be reached toward the
close of tho present week The progress
so far made while it was much less
marked yesterday than on previous days
Is generally regarded a little less than
phenomenal as modern tariff debates
go Senator Vest declares that tho pres
ent bill Is a far advanced now as was
the Wilson bill after five weeks of dis
cussion while Senator Jones of Arkansas
asserts that a much of the present
bill was passed over on the frt day of
consideration a was disposed of In the
Wilson bill In three weeks The Re
publicans generally concede that good
progress has been made but they ajro
pot inclined to felicitate themselves too
much until they see what policy Is to be
pursued when questions of more general
interest are reached than have yet been
The sugar schedule in all probability
will excite more prolonged and t r
debate than any other in the bill The
Democrats are making very extensive
preparations hIIA for the n discussion nn of In this
H HU u
made upon It The Indications are that
various other questions of general In
terest will be considered In connection
with the sugar duty Senator Pettfsrrew
Is contemplating presenting his amend
ment asalnst trusts In this connection
and It certain that the Hawaiian ques
tion will come to the front in an amend
ment providing for the continuance of
the reciprocity treaty with the Hawaiian
islands With reference to the Hawaiian
treaty there Is no longer much room for
doubt that provision will be made to
continue the present treaty In effect It
etect I
Is l probable that this will be done bv a
direct declaration that nothing In the bill
I shall be construed as abrogating the
treaty The Republican members of the
committee are contemplating this change
I Senator Pettlrew insists upon offering
the trust amendment to this schedule he
will precipitate one of the most Interest
ing debates of the session The Repub
henna are not yet decided whether they
will caucus on the sugar schedule but
there Is more or less talk to this effect
There arc two schedules to be con
sidered after the conclusion of that under
present discussion before tile eujar
schedule can be reached There are the
metal and wool schedules The metal
schedule is not especially objectionable
to the Democrats containing as It doe
many of the Wilson low rates but It Is
more or less complicated and will necessarily
I sarily consume time The wool schedule
i i will develop no little antagonism ac

I From Chief Clerkships
Washington May 30Tile policy of the
I i postofllcc department as to the appoint
ment of minors in the postoffices has
been definitely fixed and they will be de
barred from chief clerkships and deputy
DosfiSSterships except In a few of the
thirdclass offices where circumstances
urge their peculiar fitness Even then
they will not be allowed urbecome acting
postmasters on account of the legal
declaration that contracts made by
minors are voidable This effectually
brs them from being even temporarily
postmosters so far as the assumption of
the responsibilities of that office Is con
cerned An Instance is at Madison Ind
rhere M G Garber applied for the ap
Dointment 01 a person less than 18 years
old as chief clerk and deputy postmaster
An Inquiry from the postmaster general
has deduced the statement that H Is Inad
visable for a town the size of MadIson
having about 12000 population to take
such action The department refards it as
agaInst public policy and the interests
of the service to appoint minors though
except as to acting duties of postmaster
shins no legal inhibition on minors gen
erally Is cited It was only a short time
coo that a name was submitted for
postmaster at Oxford 0 a firstclass of
fice and the recommendations were of the
strongest character but It was found
tht the candidate was only 20 years old
