Dec. 8. The steamer Roumar.ia sailed to-daj- from Savannah, Ga , carrj Ing the entire First regime-it of North Carolina, with its transportation and part of the transportation of the Sec ond Indiana, to serve as part of the gar rison of Havana. The Second Illinois reg iment is loading to-day at Savannah for the samo destination. The quartermaster's department is mak ing most satisfactory progress in the preparation of docks, railroads and camp sites In the neighborhood of Havana for the reception of the troops. Acting upon Colonel Hocker's recommen dation, work is now being prosecutedwith the greatest roplditj- on what is declined to be one of the largest mllitarj" dorks In Cuba. This Is located at Trlscornla, to the eastward and just across the bav from Havana. The dock will be 400 feet long, which, it Is calculated, will give five fath oms of water alongside for the berthing of ships. Two of the. largest transports thus can lie at the dock slmultansouslj and discharge their cargoes with rap'dit. The outer end of the dock for a le-gth of 100 feet will be clear. Beginning at that point and running shoreward In the cen ter of the dock will be a large warehouse. to which access can be had from a steam er on either side. There will be a double line of rallnaj- on the dock also. This will turn southeast ward to strike the united lines of railroads at Guanabncoa. and will enable the stores to be landed about tlve miles from Havana at a point where thej can be readllj- placed on the existing railroad sj-stem and car ried to almost anj- part of the province or the cltj. Attention has been paid, in the selection of Trlscornla, to the feasibility of establishing other camps to the eastward of Havana and It will be easj- to find suita ble grades for the construction of such auxiliary railroad connections as may be required. The quartermaster general has given Instructions that no labor Is to be employ ed in these government works save that of the Cubans, wherever it is possible. The expectation is tint the emplojment will be afforded to a number of Cuban soldiers If thej- care to disband and go to work. It is estimated that the building ot the dock will occupj- sixtj- dajs.

BLOW ALMOST KILLED RIOS IIEVD OF SFAMSII COMMISSION IN A fcTATE OF COLLAPSE. Spnnlnrd Are ExceedlnRly Bitter Over the llesnlt Onr More Form al Me-etins Will He Held, Suturiln or Monday, to Slsn Treat j. PARIS, Dec. S The United States and the Spanish peace commissioners con cluded their work to-day and finallj- settled the terms of the treat- of peace. They wlll meet once more in formal session on Saturdaj or Mondaj next, when the Span ish commissioners, sorrowfully, ar 1 the Americans, with feelings of relicr, will write their signatures upon the document which embodies the results of the war and the preparation of which has con sumed eleven weeks, a longer time than the war Itself. In the meantime, the treaty will be engrossed under the su pervision of Mr. Moore and Senor Ojeda, the secretaries of the respective commis sions. Tho Spaniards are exceedingly bitter over the result, though observing the forms of friendliness and courtesy to tho end. Senor Montero Rios, whose strong and persistent struggle to save for his coun-trj- everj- possible asset from the wreck of her colonial empire has commanded the respect and admiration of his opponents, went from the council chamber to-day to his bed in a state of complete colIipe as the result of the long strain and his chag rin over the small fruits ot Ids efforts. Senor Ojeda has been prostrated since jes-terdaj-, and was unable to attend the joint session to-daj-. The Spaniards charge equal blame upon the European powers and the United States for their downfall. One of the Spanish commissioners jid this evening: "The European nations have made a great mistake in deserting Spain and leav ing her to spoliation bj the brute force of a conscienceless giant. The all know that, in the Philippines, Ameiiei his taken more than she can digest. She will ultimately sell the Islands to England or Germanj-, and when the- transfer s at tempted it will -precipitate generil Euro pean strife. "We have refused to sell anj Island In the Carolines. We never thought of eon sldering an offer. Nor have we consented to negotiate anv questions except those directly involved in the protocol signed at Washington." The members of the commissions say the treaty will contain little outside the scope of the 'Washlrgton protocol, and the mat ters directlj- based thereon, like the provis ions for the'evacuation of the ceded terri tories, the transfer oi public property thereln, and guarantees of the safety of the property and rights of the Spanish citi zens remaining there. The details of the last class of questions covered by the statement which the Ameri cans handed to Senor Montero Rios at the last meeting were considered to-day. but all the commissioners refuse to div ulge the details of the conference. Several points upon which the- were un able to agree were left open for diplomatic negotiations. The Spaniards refuse to admit that the had failed to respect former treaties guar anteeing religious freedom In the Caroline islands, or that there was a necssit for new guarantee0. The conclusion of the work was, accord ing to the commi-i-ioners, marked bj po liteness and all outward evidences of good feeling and relief at the fact that the task was accomplished. When all the propositions had been dis cussed. Judge Day, president of the Amer ican commission, remarked: "There seems to be nothing more to do but engross and sign the treat-." Senor Montereo Rios, president of the Spanish commission, acquiesced to this, and the Americans bowed themselves out before the Spaniards, accordng to their custom. Tho American peace commissioners en tered the joint conferenee to-da In a nervous frame of mind. The evidently had reasors to believe that a possibillty exlsted, even at this late hour, that there might bo a rupture. This feeling of ap prehension was. baed on the temper the Spaniards have dlsplajed lately. This week the commissioners of Spain have not con cealed the fact that, having failed to gain all the important points, the are indif ferent as to whether or not the conferences result in a settlement of peace bj- the sign ing of a treaty by which Spain loses all her colonies. A miscarriage of the negotiations would lc-ave their political prestige at home in no worse, if in no better, position than if tliey signed the treat. The Americans were anxious not to give the Spaniards anj' pre text to break oft the negotiations, or tas.e offenso so far as the exercise of patience and diplomacj' could steer clear of pro tests. Senor Rios referred to the Maine, but in only one calmly worded sentence, express ing regret that the president had spoken, as Spaniards thought, unjustly, of lixm. The Spaniards had alread proposed at this conference to have the responslbillt of the Maine reported upon b a joint com mission ot the European powers. The American commissioners refused to listen to this, and permitted Senor Rios' refer ence to the president's message to pass un challenged, as a discussion would have pro voked debite and bnd blood. Diplomatic circles In Paris predict as one of the results of the treat, a diplo matic contest between France and the United States which have an Important chapter In historj-. The French government is reported to have resolved to take up the case of the French holders of Cuban bonds, and it is believed Trance will declare that the re pudiation of the bonds is the result of the treat- which the victorious nation Imposed upon Spain. They argue that, through the treaty, responsibility has been shifted upon America, and. therefore, the -French government will endeavor to exact some pledge for the payment or guarantee of the bonds. LONDON, Dec S The Madrid corre spondent of the Standard sas: "The strongest comments are made upon the little disposition the United States Ins shown to re-pond to the Spanish demards for a prompt release of 11 wO Spanish pris oners in the hands of the- Tngals and a restitution of private and official deposits now ling in the colonial official and ju diciil deposit banks. "Ever thing seems to show- that th" last stage in the negotiations hns taken a turn hardlv calculated to pacifj Spinlsh public opinion or to facilitate, for a long time to come the renewal of frlerdlv relations between the two governments. Mcst of the newspapers favor the Idea of -elhng tht- Carolines and tho other possess'eas of Srain in the Pacific to German or to some other mtion willing to pav- a better prloc than the United State0." MADRID.

WHY CALL ITJMPERIALISM? Assistant Secretarj of State Hill on the I'oliej That Hns Grown Out ot the War. ROCHESTER. N. Y., Dec. S. The elev enth annua) banquet of the Rochester Chamber of Commerce was held to-night In the Mirror room of Powers' Art gallery, nearly 7M guests being present. Governor Leslie M Shaw, of Iowa, responded to the toast ' The Tlrancial Need of To-day. " Dr. David J. Hill, assistant secretary of state, spoke on the "Greater America." Ho said in part: "Now- that victory has placed the fate of 12.000,000 human beings in the hands of a conquering nation, with what right Jo;s a spirit of criticism which derives its In spiration from conditions that have ceased stamp with the word 'imperialism.' the magnanimity of this republic in extendlns the sheltering wings of its protection over tnose whom the war has liberated from oppression ard mlserj ? "What now will our national legislators do with the territorj- ceded by Soain to the United States? Will they restore them to the vengeance of tho vanquished? Will they leave them to the occupation and par tition of other powers? AVill they abandon them to their own Inexperience and Inter nal dlseord? Or will they nttempt to es tablish within them the conditions of peace and self-government? There is nothing novel In the idea of territorial expansion, which has marked everj- period ot our national hlstorv. Only .i little strip of terntorj- along the Atlantic seaboard was peopled by the victorious col onies at the close of the War of Independ ence, but tbe American commissioners were lnstrueted to elaim for the eolonies the whole area east of the Mississippi Franklin, the most astute diplomatist of his time, toveted, in addition, the whole of Ci nada. "In li!. Jefferson --trained the constitu tion to the breaking point, as he believed, to secure the purchase of the great pro vince of Louisiana, which ft one stroke doubled the area of the countr. His op ponents eonsidered his act not only un constitutional but. In effect, a dissolution of the union, and a historian has accused him of making himself monarch of the rivi- territory and of holding, against its protests, tne power or its old Ktngs.' "Jackson did not hesitate to Invade and conquer Florida for the peace of the na tion. Texas came into the Union by rev olution and the entire tract wlik.li now tonus the prosperous states' stretching from Mexico to Oregon, was the fiuit of wai and forced opinion. ' Thus, b continued territorial expansion, the better part of this continent has be come incorporated into the United States. "Having vton from tihiure and untitled claimants the possession W what is most desirable upon this continent, slnll we heneeforth renounce-Mil dominion upon the sea? "Jefferson. Indeed, once said that our na tional ambition should be llmitid to pos sessions that would not need a navy to defend thm. but that was long ago." In eonclusion. Mr. Hill uld: "A gi?nt s task now confronts the Amer ican people, but their history gives thi insurance tint they will not tumble lie fore It ard the din of war and the strife of nations.

MAY GET GILLETT HIS CREDITORS WILL ASK FOR HIS EVITIADITIOV MAN COMING NOW FOR PAPERS AnREST OF TWO ALLEGED ACCOM PLICES ASKED FOR. Governor humailn, of Chihnnhun, In timate Verj StroiiBly That G1I lett AMU lie Given In to American Authorities for Prosecution. LAS VEGAS. N. M.. Dec. S -(Special) D. II. Howard, a cattle dealer of Abilene. Kas.. who is $40,000 short on Grant Gillett. the Kansas plunger, passed through Las Vegas this morning en route from Mexico to Topeka, where he will ask Governor Lecdy to issnie requisition papers for the transfer of Gillett into the custody of the Kansas state authorities. Howard and two detectives have aeen on Gillett's trail for ten das. They discov ered his whereabouts in Chihuahua City. With him is his Abilene attorney. C. R. Troxel. who helped him in his flight. Gil lett would have been promptly arrested but for the defective extradition laws. It was considered best to leave the two detectives to shadow them until such time as matters could be arranged to capture and extiadlte them without the possibility of a hitch in the proceedings. Governor Ahumada was called uron. Howard sas the governor trerted him most kindlv. and. after hearing his state ment and the stor of Gillett's conduct, very strongl intimated that, notwith standing the extradition laws, executed legal documents on behalf of the American authorities would fetch Gillett baek to Kansas. Mr. Howard further stated that he had, at Albuquerque, last night, telegraphed to the tit marshal at Abilene, requesting the arrest or detentfon of two parties as ac cessories, of Gillett. CAN HE BE EXTRADITED? Kiuiun City Lnjtjer Fear It Will Be No Eum Tnskc to Iirlnir Gil lett UacL. Four of the most prominent lawers, of this city worked all day jesterday look ins up the laws appljing In the case of G. G. GU'ett. ana thev finally came to the corclusion that it will be next to lmposw sible to extradite the erstwhile eattle king. Forgerj- is the onlj charge- upon which he cm be broughtyiaek from Mexico, and to accomplish even this it will be i.ecessar to prove to the Mexican court In the most positive manner that Gillett is guilty of the erarge. This will be no eas matter. Even Mr. Hollinger, pres dent of tho Gil lespie Commission Compan, the firm whien will lose more, perhaps, than any otlier, admits this, and is very dubioas over the prospects. Mr. Hollinger states that, while there is no doubt that there has been a forger, which he is perfectly eonvinced was dore bv Gillett, jet it will be a very uifflcult matter to convince a Mexican court of this. There seems to be a general inclination among the stockmen to let "the matter rst until something detinue is learned as to the c'nnees for extradition Thej- seem to think that it will then be time enough to make an effort to apprehend Gillett and feel sure that there will be little d'ihculty In finding him. E.crjone about the stock jardi is assured that he is in Mex.co, as has been stated from time to time in The Journal, and there thej are willing to allow the mitter to rest for the time being. Almost insurmourtable obstacles lie in the w ij- of those who are seeking to bring about the extradition of Gillett. Even if thej had him under arrest in Mexico, which thev have not. it would be a matter of weeks before thev could bring the di rect law to bear upon him. The governor of Kansas would hive to be seen, a trip to Washington would hiv to be made, and after that the long journev to Mex ico. Then at the trial .it that place nearly everj- witness who would be introduced into a trial In this countr would hive to be on hand. Then there would have to be an absolute cor.v Ictlnn of forgerj to ob tain an cMraditlon. whieh Ih denned al most Impossible by those who are al versint with the conditions in Mexico. Besides, while these matters were pend ing. Gillett might be able to obtain his llbertv through some piocess of the Mex ican law, and betake himself to another eountry. This knowledge has been ob tained through a consultation with a gen tleman or this cltj- who at one time was minister to our sister republic on the south. Some sort of a message was received from Mexico jesterdaj lij Mr. Hollinger, but he declined to speak of the matter, other than to sav that there was nothing new. Together with other men who ar aetlvelj- engaged in an enort to bring li abiLondir.R man back, Mr. Hollinger is hardly satisfied as to the proper course to pursue In the matter.

FIRST CATCH GILLETT. II. C. Havcrl, of Llnare. Saj He Know Mexico Authorities Will Give Him Up If Rrqnetrd. II. C. Haverly, a miner of Linares. Nuevo Leone. Mex . is at the New Albanj-. Asked regarding the chances for extraditing G. G. Gillett, the cattle plunger, he said: "I have no doubt but what Gillett will be returned to this country. I was a deputy marshal on the Arizona border several j ears ago, before the last amendment to the extradition treaty with Mexico. My state Is adjacent to Chihuahua on west and south. I know the state of Chihuahua thoroughlj-. and can say that if Gillett can be located he can be arrested and brought back. I had occasion to go across the line several times for embezzlers, with papers charging embezzlement, when that was not an extraditable effense. I never failed to get them. The only trouble In that coun tr" Is to locate j-our man. "It makes no difference how much money he has or how f reelj he uses It In attempt ing to bribe officials. I am confident of what I saj. "I am a member of the same fraternity with President Diaz," said he, opening his coat and displajing three secret society pins. "I am acquainted with the pres dent, and I know- there Is no man in this countr' more earnest in his efTorts to maintain friendly relations with the United States "More than that, he is n lover ot justice, and he will give his official and moral sup port to apprehend criminals an embezzler as quickj as a. murderer. If jou knew the man or will look into his official ac tions in such cases, j-ou will have- no more doubts on that point than I have. Money inducements will make no dif ference with him. and whatever iniluet.ee Gillett ma have galred with officials of the state of Chilhuahu I am sure will noc affect the case. "As I said, he will have a splendid op portunitv to hide in the niouniains in remote rarts of the state, but if he le mains in either of its two large citi.s. or frequents an ot the towns, he will be sure to be captured. "Criminals a few jenrs ago could not be so easllj extradited as thev anj- le now, and for that reason It is" currentlj believed that the government of Mexico harbors them to-dav. Mark mv word. Gil lett will be returned If he does not make h's disappearance good " Mr. Havtrlv is emplojed in mines near Linares. He is a member of the Red Men. the Odd Fallows and the Knights ot Pjthias.
