If any one desires to hear "war talk" he should hi in Washington just now. I have heard nothing else since arr are iving here to.lay. The newspapers issuing "extras" on evisry little piece of information received and the papers sell like hot cakes. The gen- ral impression is that war will be de clared but just when, no one knows. There is not likely to bo much fric tion in Congress over the disposition the Maine report when it comes to congress, mere is considered to be room for controversy over the mat- ter. The suggestion that the minori- ty are going to resist the report being referred to the foreign sffairs commit tee is pronounced little short of ab surd. The rule requiring reference to committee is imperative. The mast nsignificant thing has to go through the formality of reference to comroit- tee, , and there is apparently no dispo sition to treat so important a ques tion as this with less regard for the forms of procedure than is shown in aling with minor matters. The sug gestion that as result of the confer ence between the President and Spea ker Bead yesterJay the House was to held in check by the reference of the report is based upon a. false as sumption, The sentiment of the House is very pronounced. Without reference to par rty or politics the desire is for action speedily as the circumstances of the case admit of. It is naturally expec ted, therefore, that the committee will very s-on after the message has been ferred report back whatever action deemed desirable. The House may may not follow the committee, ith the question once up the House may run away with it and take radi cal action, if the committee should not eport a proposition that is satisfacto ry. er, This is mere speculation, howev- since the Congress does not know hat the report of the board of in quiry will disclose nor what the Presi nt will recommend. The committee ill probably follow the President in hatever he recommends. Decisive action ly the President is expscteil. nd if this expectation is not disap pointed there will be. uo friction over the question in Congress. There is a most decided opposition in both houses of Congress to anything like temporiz ing, and to any suggestion of arbitra tion or a proposition which involves the continuance of Spanish domina tion over any part ot the is anu 01 Cuba. The universal demand in Con gress is for the relief of Cuba from the Spanish yoke and reparation (not in demnity) for the dest uction of the Maine. If the course of the President leparts widely from this policy no one oabts that there will be a distur bance in Congress, but it is not apt to resolved into a party contention. n such an improbable contingency it is thought that the friction would be between the President and practically the solid body of Congress. The sen timent is so stronsr that there seems possibility that Congress will be nt nt with a mild policy. There is a fixed purpose on the part of the lead ers and the active men in all parties to hold themselves in restraint until the report of tile Maine board has been made and then to give a reason able time for action. Beyond this point there is no assurance that any sort of restraint will be possible. The feeling that war is imminent is more general in Congress today than it has been before. From several con servative sources has come the asser tion that the situation has assumed a graver aspect than at any time before and that war seems inevitable. J he report comes from an administration source that the President is about to send to Congress a special message which will cause a sensation, elearing away all doubt that now surrounds the situation. This is represented as not being the message transmitting the re port of the Maine court of inquiry, but one in advance of that, dealing with the general Cuban question. Of course a report of this sort cannot be verified but must be judged by its source. In this case the source is good and has heretofore been reliable. The President sent for Senators Allison and Gorman today. This is the first time he has called a democrat into inference. Men who have been con sulted or conferred with by the Presi dent are dose-mouthed after talk with Mm tmt there is no concealing1 mat hir are crraver after the talk.

It is known only that he has never been in favor of war. Members of the Kentucky delegt tion are slow to talk on the suDiect, but it is easy to see that deepd own in their hearts they want a ngnt, anu 1 balieve they will so vote if Congress ig- nores the President ana taKes action on its own accord.

The City Council of Lancastir, and the local board of health have issued an order requiring all persons coming rom districts infected by small pox to show a health certificate, stating that thiy had been vaccinated witnin the past year. This is a good move, and we believe if every citizen will heed the warning and submit to vaccina tion we will escape this terrible epi lemic. All persons who are unable to pay for this service will be vaccinated free of charge by the local board of health. Small Pox t Richmond. Three of the pest-houses have been completed at Richmond, and a fourth is being put up. Tents have arrived from Frankfort for the use of guards. The small-pox subjects have been moved to the pest-house. Vaccination continues to be pushed. The first leath from small pox reported is that of Sophia Walker, colored, who has been in a precarious condition for tome time. There are no other cases considered necessarily fatal at preseat The first white case developed that of 1 woman who lives near the negro quarters. TO CURE A COU IN ONE DAT.
