H3 Scores the President and the Peace Senators and Says Cubau Inde pendence Should Have Been Re cognized Months ago. Washington, April 21. During the civil appropriation bill discussion in the senate Senator Teller delivered a speech criticizing the president and and several seniors. Mr. Teller scor ed the t administration for givinr, u directly, moral support to Spain for the past four months. These men cow bob up and charge that tie op ponents of the administration are against Cuba, aud they are tbe only friends the island ever had. Spanish treason, bribery and warfare had not been able to conquor Gomez and bis followers. The fight there was even a more gallant one than that of the re volutionists. Give the Cubans muni tions of war, recognize them and they would make short work of the Span iards on that island. Mr. Teller insist ed that if congress had, even six months ago, granted belligerent rights to the insurgents, they would have won their independence bsfore row. Mr. Teller asserted that Spain was unable to conquer the insurgents and said he had information that no matter what comes, Cubans would never quit fight ing the Spaniards. Mr. Teller charg ed that the reason in "certain quart ers" lor not wisning to recognize Cuban independence, was that an im provement company, with immense capital, was opposed to it. That was his 'Opinion why there was so much anxiety tD "establish a stable govern ment" in the island. SURPRISED BY MCKINLEY.

It is semi-offk-ially stated that tbe Pennsylvania senators consulted be fore Smith's appointment, and tb y agreed not to oppose it.' Tneir consent is perhaps the price of pe:vce between tietn and the warring factions of Penn sylvania. Notwithstacding the official state meat that Postmaster General Gary's retirement was due to Ill-health tbe suggestion is freely made that he retir ed from the cabinet because his views on tbe war question did notac ord with those he'd by the rema'nder of the president's official advice rs.
