The appearance of numerous prominent Rock Island men out in this section within the last six weeks has certainly lent strong color to the belief that the appearance of the legend "C. R I. & P." on the Texas & Pacific cars, is merely a matter of a few months. The Leading- Events of the Day in This and Other Countries are to be Found iu This Column. The Senate on Cuba. Washington, Jan. 7. Several memorials were presented in the sen ate today, by Cullom, of Illinois, favor iog the recognition of the Republic of Cuba. A joint resolution was presented by Mills, of Texas, declaring that the expediency of recognizing the inde pendence of a foreign government belongs to congress; and when congress shall so determine, the executive shall act in harmony with the legislative department of government: second, that independence of the republic of Cuba ought to be and hereby .is recognized and the sum of $10,000 is hereby api pointed for salary and expenses for minister to that government whenever such minister shall be appointed by the president. Mr. Mills gave notice he would address the senate in support of the joint measure, i White, of California, presented a re monstrance from bis state againsb the passage of the funding bill, asking it be printed in the record. This rather unusual provision was not objected to. Two bills on the subject of the Pacific railroad adverse to the funding plan introduced by Morgan, of Ala., were referred. By the appointment of trustees by the appointment provided for by the bill, the secretary of the treasury is directed to take immediate possession of the whole line of railroad and telegraph of each company for use of the United States government until congress shall otherwise direct. Nine trustees to hold office for four years are named by the president subject to removal for cause. Senator Morgan today introduced a oluminous bill which among other things, directs the secretary of the treasury to issue bonds to such an amount as may be necessary to take up the fist mort gage bond-3 on the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads; the bonds to run 45 years at 3 per cent interest with privilege of redemption after ten ears. On motion of Senator Hale, senate greed to-adjourn till Monday next, and Mills changed the time of his Cuban peech from tomoorrw till Monday. OUR WOOL INTERESTS. Legislation at Washing-ton Looking: to Their Speedy Rehabilitation. Washington, Jan. 7. The wool manufacturers were well represented before the ways and means committee today. S. N. E. North, of Boston, sec retary of the national association, rep sented the view s of that body. He said the association counseled moderation in fixing rates, and expected only ade quate protection such as experience had proven was necessary to enable them to continue and extend the in dustry. They desired a chance to re open their mills, but neither asked nor desired excessive duties, being convin ced that the best interests of both the wool growing and wool manufacturing interests would be protected by the en actment of a conservative and reason able tariff and that some promise of perananence would thus exist. A meeting of the representatives of the National Woolgrowers' association held vesterday. at Washington drew up a bill to present to the ways and means committee. Its features are embraced in the memorial of the farm ers' national congress, adopted at In dianaoolis last November, and later agreed to at the Dec. 1 meeting. In brief, it asks congress to impose on merino wool and wools of the mutton breeds of sheep unwashed, is cents a pound; on other wools 8 cents a pound: double duty on all if washed and tre ble if scoured. It provides the Aus tralian and similar wools of light shrinkage in scouring, as shorn in native condition, shall be deemed washed. Wool in any other than or dinary condition of whole fleeces shall be subjected to double duty and defines what shall be deemed scoured wool. One feature of importance was added to the bill, viz, asking the imposition of 1 cent a year additional duty on the merino and mutton wool until the duty reaches 15 cents per pound. BAD LADY SCOTT. On the Pncific Roads. Washington, Jan. 7. In the house today, the debate upon the proposition to refund the indebtedness of the Pa cific railroad companies to the govern ment, was begun before entering on the debate, a bill was agreed to, pro viding for the appointment of surveyor general for Alaska, at a salary of S2, 000. Chairman Powers committee on Pacific railroads, reporting the bill, stated the time for general debate would be equally divided between friends and opponents of measure.- Mr. Powers opened the case for the bill. A Sensation in Today's Proceedings in the Old Bailey. LONDON, Jan. 7. The spectators who crowded to Old Bailey this morning to watch the libel proceedings brough by Lord Russell against Lady Scott were treated to a genuine surprise when Solicitor Walton arose and an nounced that under the advice of coun sel, the defendants withdrew their plea of justification in uttering the libels complained of by Marl Russell, and pleaded guilty as charged. The an nouncement created a profound sensa tion. When the sitting resumed after i recess, the prisoners were brought in Lady Scott was in a highly excitable condition, but Aylott and Cockerton maintained an air of unconcern. The jury rendered a formal verdict of guil ty, and the court announced that sen tences would be imposed tomorrow. The case is the sequel to difficulties existing between Earl Russell and wife for years. In JS'Jl, Countess Russell, daughter of Lady Scott, brought suit against her husband for divorce, mak ing accusations against him of the most revolting nature. Countess Russell was not successful in proving the charg es but Lady Scott at the trial made damaging statements as did two ser vants. Earl Russell won against his wife and himself secured the divorce; then he served on Lady Scott a unit for libel, which he woo today. NO FEAR OF THE WOLF. Bank Resurrection. Denver, Jan. 7. The American ational bank which closed last April, wing depositors nearly a million of dollars, resumed business today, with new capital and under new manage ment. Julius A. Myera is president and B. Freeman is cashier. Over its mmediate liabilities the bank has $600,000 to transact business with. The reopening will be the means of putting nearly a million dollars of tied p money into active circulation at once. The Indiana Senatorship. Indianapolis, Ind., Jan. 7. The ixtieth general assembly of Indiana was called to order at noon today n the house Representative Petit was selected by a vote of 52 to 47; and Petit being a Fairbanks man, in- icates that Fairbanks may easily be elected senator on Jan. 12th., when vote for senator is taken. a Tr "Watolies fe Diamonds, ,r,;) rit SZEiELiDOlSr BLOCK, IZ.DUlsT-, F-ASO - TEXAS, DE.

Reports that Maceo is alive are constantly coming from the field, and all tend to show that he is recuperat ing rapidly. Letters received in Havana from his medical attendants explain the nature of his wounds and confirm previous reports of the character of the same and repeat the story of Zer;ucha's treachery. They say that Maceo, j with his staff, came to meet Ahumada under a flag of truce, and that Ciru- jeda and his forces were ambushed. As soon as Maceo appeared the Span iards opened fire. Maceo was in front and fell from his horse. Gomez also fell at his side. The rest of the 6taff, some of whom were wounded, managed to escape, and reached Baldo Mera. Acosta's camp instantly gathered all its small forces and rushed to the rescue. J. hey made a desperate tight and drove Cirujeda into Punta Brava, recovered the bodies and carried the apparently dead Maceo with them. He remained unconscious four days and five nights and when prepared for burial it was found that he was still alive. As soon as he was able to be transported he was carried with the greatest care and under a strong escort to the Cienega hospital, though others say to Siguanea. It appears that the project of the Cubans as soon as Maceo is able to move is to send him to the United States, and a steamer has already been ordered for the purpose, and thus per sou ally prove that he is alive. Cleveland and His Cabinet Advisers Will be Comfortably Fixed. A special to the San Francisco Ex aminer says: J. be cut-of-omce pro gramme of the president and his cabi net is almost settled. Cleveland, after the 4th of March, will take up the handling of the fortune he has accumu lated in and out of office, and his secre tary of war will be with him, as hereto fore, in all his deal-?, having his eyes politically cast toward gubernatorial honors. Both Secretary Oiney and Attorney- General Harmon will return to the law practices they have kept tethered safe- during their time of service with Cleveland. Secretary Herbert is said to be slated for a good thing in connec tion with the Cramps' projected ordi nance plan. Carlisle is certain of the future, as a dozen threads are in his hands, and any one will lead to a comfortable berth for life. It is thought ha will become general counsel for the Equita ble Life Assurance company at $25,000 a year. Morton need have no cares for the future. He was very wealthy before he entered Cleveland's cabinet, and while he has added nothing to his fortune during his four years in the agricul tural department, he still has money enough to keep him comfortably for many times his natural term of years He will go back to his farming in Ne braska, where he will continue to be a thorn in the side of the populists. Francis, of the interior department. will return to the St. Louis wheat pit. Postmaster-General Wilson, pol itical- ly without a future, will be deprived utterly of the support he has derived from bis place in the house, and hav- ng been so long divorced from the active practice of the law. will be in the worst condition of any of the cabinet people. Cleveland would like to do something for Wilson in a judi. cial way, but opportunity lacks. He may accept the offer he now has under consideration of beeoning the president of the Washington and Lee University, the oldest institution of learning in the south. The Westminster Gaz-atte published at London gives prominence to a re port that Queen Victoria has declared her intention to commemorate the longest reign in English history by abdicating in favor of the Prince of Wales. The jury panel iu the district court was released for the remainder of the week today, as the suit of the Corralitos Cattle com pany against the Texas & Pacific will occupy the next three days. The cattle company claim $22,000 damages for delay on the part of the railroad eompany to ship 4o00 head of cattle, and for a further delay in tran sit. The lire department attendee in considerable numbers this afternoon, the funeral of the department do ".Nig" was laid out in a black cloth covered box. I' enchler lirotners brought over a train load of 580 bead of cattle this aUercooa for shipment to Kans-aa City'. Truth About Cuba. Coagressman-elect Robinson. of Pennsylvania, who has just returned from Cuba says: 'It is impossible to get reliable news from Cuba because of the csnsorship exercised over the matter, even private letters. The cause for which the Cubans are struggling is the same for which our fathers fought for in our war for independence. The Cubans have no voice in their government and there is no such thing as a jury trial there. Taxation is unbearable. Iu 1S94 $46,- 000.000 was wrung from the unfortunate Cubans and carried to Spain, and the peasants and farmers are unable to stand the strain, hence the rebellion. When the present revolution broke out Cuba was being taxed to support an army of 14,000 men, while in reality there wore less than 4.000. In the entire island there is not a Cuban or foreigner except the Spanish who is not in sympathy with the revolutionary movement. The cities are under the control of the insurgents. The plan cf General Weyler is not to subdue tte Cubans, but to exterminate them. Will IieiiiU Weyler. News has been received at the Cuban Junta at New York from Washington to tlio eltect that the opamsh govern ment lias positively determined to recall Capt. Geu. Weyler. Gen. Primo do Rivera, it is said, will succeed Gen. Weyler in Cuba. IIo is a captain gen eral in the Spanish army in favor with the Canovas government. Minister Taylor, it is said, ioformtd Secretary Oiney several days ago that the authorities at Madrid were on the point of relieving Gen. Weyler of h:s command in Cuba and of appointing as a euc'c'e&'o'r Gee. Rivera. "Got the Babies Mixed.-' To the editor of the El Paso Daily Herald: Sir: You state in yesterday's issue that the Rev. H. C. Morrison, of Lex ington, Ky., has been expelled from the Methodist ministry, and identify him with the Rev. Dr. II. C. Moriison, of Nash villa. Term. You are in error in so doing. Dr. Morrison, of Nashville, is a man of good standing in his com munion, and while I was surprised to hear that in his address here on John Wesley, last summr, he spoke dispar agingly, and unjustifiably-, of the great communion which produced the Wes leys, still I would not see an injustice done bim, and therefore ask you to publish the following from the "Nash ville Banner," of the 2nd inst: "Dr. Morrison says U. C. Morrison, of Lexington, is not his son as was reported. Atlanta, Ga , January 2 Rev. Dr. H. C. Morrison, of Nasbville, Tenn., who is in the city, denies that Rev. H. C. Morrison, of Lexington, Ky., who was expelled from the Metho dist ministry on charges of iusubordi nation, is his son, as has been claimed. The Kentucky evangelist is not related to Dr. Morrison, of Nashville." Mayo Cabell Martin, Rector of St. Clement's Church. Rector Martin is mistaken. The Herald did not "mix the babies up." The Herald said that Rev. H. C. Morrison, of Lexington. Ky., was ex pelled from the Methodist ministry for preaching holiness, which, according to the Houston Post, from which the fact was gleaned, is true. Rev. Dr. H. C. Morrison, of Nashville, Tenn., is another man entirely, and has no con nection whatever with the Lexingtoa Morrison. If, as Mr. Martin says, Rev. Dr. Morrison delivered an address last summer in this city on John Wesley, the Herald koows nothing about such an address. But it does know of an address delivered one year ago last summer by the Lexington Morrison at the laying of the Triuitv church corner stone when the topic of the occasion was the life of lohn Wrsley and the growth of Methodism. It is true that the orator of the day was referred to in the report of the ceremony as "Dr." But it was in the same spirit that news paper writers sometimes refer to a man as "colonel " or "major" or "judge' when the party addressed or spoken of has not just call to be thus addressed. If the complimentary reference thus made got the good rector mixed up as to the who and the -which of the two Morrisons, the Herald reporter was to blame. However, in justice to the reporter, it must be said that he had at that time never heard of the Nashville Doctor Morrison. Similarity in names has led to confusion before. Miss Martiu's Reception. Mrs. Mavo Cabell Martin received yesterday from 4:00 to 7:00 p. m.,at her residence on Mesa Avenue in honor of Miss Kathevine Martin, of Nashville, Tenn. She was assisted by Miss San- ford of Canada, Miss Johnson, of Mary land, Miss Wise, of Colorado, the Misses Ranford of Wisconsin, Miss Stevenson, of Texas and Miss Kirk, of Pennsvlvania. The ladies were all handsomely and becomingly attired. The interior of the house had been tastefully decorat ed with cut flowers, flowering plants and smilax. The reception room was in pink and green. In the frappe room, which was in pink, Mrs. W. G. Walz and Mrs. Waters Davis grace fully presided. The dining room was most effective, green and white pre dominating. Festoons of smilax hung from the chandelier to the table corners. the center piece or Irisn. point was outlined with a bank of car nations and ferns, bunches of violets being also among the decorations of the table. Here chocolate and coffee were served by Mrs. Sanford, Mrs. Lack land, and Mrs. Doug.'as Gray. Mrs. Kemp, Mrs. Stanton, and Mrs. Thomas also assisted in the dining room. About hundred ladies called during the afternoon. In the evening.tbe following gentlemen were entertained at pro gressive anagrams, by the ladies who received in the afternoon: Messrs. Carpenter, Ullmer, Daniel, (of Aguas Calientes, Mexico,) C. C. Sexton, Burgess, Slater, David Payne.and Kev. E. H. J. Andrews. Dainty refreshments were served late in tne evening. Pecos Valley. , . The Roswell Record has this on the subject of the Pecos Valley railroad. "t rom extra official sources, we un derstand that the prospects for the ex tension of the railroad have about passed the era of prospect, and that matters are nearly ready to take definite shape. We are not prepared to state that our informants nave as surances from any of the company offi cials direct. In fact, we think they got their tip from another quarter. Ba that a9 it may, they believe they know what they are talking about, are going to back their judgements with business investments, the success of which will be greatly enhanced by the extension."
