The oration was then delivered by
Mr. Porter. The formal presentation
of the memorial by the Society to the
Ity was made by Maj. Wayne to May
or Warwick, with short addresses bv
both, and then the Mayor transferred
it to the Fairmont Park Commission,
which body exercises jurisdiction over
the great pleasure ground.

looking at the troops, reviewed the
President and his party.
At sunrise this morning the boom of
cannon from the batteries of l nite-1
States troops camped in Fairmont
Park aroused the city to the greatest
day in its history. It was not long af
ter that until steady streams of people
began to flow along every byway lend
ing to the Green street entrance to the
park, where the monument stands.
The ceremonies proper began ai own.

How the United States Government
Will Assist Americans
Who Are Destitute and in Want
of the Necessaries of Life, in
Cuba, Owing to the State of War
Existing ou the Island—All Those
Who Desire It Will be Removed
to the United States, But Those
Wishing ts Remain May Do So,
and This Government Will Aid
Them in Every Proper Manner.
The Spanish Authorities Ac
quiesce in the Plan Proposed.
Washington, May 15.—In considering
^ ways and means of affording substan
tial relief to such American citizens in
Cuba as are in real distress owing to
i the war, ihe administration has hit
upon a plan which is sanctioned by the
united judgment of the United States
consular officers in Cuba, who, being
on the ground, are supposed to be best
qualified to judge of the efficiency of
proposed relief measures.
This plan is to give notice through
the American consuls to all American
citizens in Cuba that the government
will undertake to remove them from
the island to the United States if they
so desire.
To do so, this will require action by
Congress, not necessarily a specific au
thorization of the removal, but merely
the limitation of the appropriation to
i the general terms of one for the relief
: of American citizens in Cuba.,
A course similar to this was adopted
with more or less benefit in China dur
ing the rioting incident to the Chinese
Japanese war and during the Armenian
troubles. Mr. Teirill, the United
States Minister, was authorized to un
dertake the conveyance of American
citizens to the coast cities, where they
might have suitable protection.
! The proposition as to Cuba goes a
little further than the measures adopted
in the case of China or Turkey in that
it contemplates the removal of the
Americans from the island entirely.
Probablv the reason for this is the be
lief. founded on reports from United
States Consul General Lee and other
j United States consular officers, that
j the war has so thoroughly exhausted
tlie agricultuarl resources of the island
that it will be a long time before it
will be again in condition to maintain
its population, and meanwhile the
Americans who are dependant upon the
soil for their livelihood will suffer.
The consequent suffering can be re
| lieved by the government's furnishing
; the unfortunates with supplies and
nieuuinos. out General i>ec iftt\the
view that this relief must be continued
probably for a long time.
The proposed American exodus from
Cuba must be purely voluntary, and it is
not even proposed to present the alter
native of denying supplies if destitute
Americans refuse to leave the island. It
is simply proposed to give them an oppor
tunity to leave the island if they believe
they ran letter their condition in the
United States. It Is the belief of General
I,ee that many persons will avail them
selves of such an opportunity, and it is
possible that his view will be adopted by
the President.
Figures are not available as to the num
ber of American citizens In Cuba who are
in actual distress and in need of food or
clothing, as the result of Weyler's order
bring.ng them into towns.
The State Department is now '.n corre
spondence with its consuls by telegraph,
seeking to get this Information as the basts
for any message the President may send
to Congress on the subject of relief. But.
so far as officially known to the depart
ment. through the reports of the consul
made up to this time, the number of
Americans in this condition is between 1*0
and 200.
In explanation of this small number. It
is said that most of the Americans, na
tives. living in Cuba are employed in the
higher branches of industries or profes
sions. and are not actual workers of the
soil. The sufferers are mostly naturalized
citizens, holding small parcels of ground,
upon which they have depended hereto
fore for livelihood.
It is not doubted that there are more of
this class In need than are vet known to
the department, but it is hoped in the
course of a few days to have a fairly ac
curate census of them. The agencies to
be used to relieve these people are the
United States consuls in Cuba, and it can
be stated that the Spanish government,
through its minister here, so far from op
posing the exercise of such charitable of
fer* bv the consuls, has professed its read
ireSR jo assist in every proper way in the
distribution of relief, which is taken to
mean that it will guarantee safe conduct
for the transporting parties over the isl

WASHINGTON. May 15.—The definite
announcement was made at^ the capitol
to-day that a message on th'e Cuban sit
uation will be sent to Congress by the
President next Monday. It will deal spe
cifically with the question of the depriva
tion* to which American citizens are sub
jected in Cuba, and it is understood that
it will recommend an appropriation for
their relief.

Philadelphia. May 15.—The Presi

Sherman, at Washington, this morning,

have come to the latter from Cuba.
These are said to relate largely to the
subject of the distress and destitution
now existing on the island. It is fur
ther stated that they confirm in a great
measure the information heretofore re
vived bv the President on the subject.
It is believed that a message giving
the views of the President on the situa
tion in Cuba will be sent to Congress
earlv next week. It is stated positively,
however, by those in position to know,
that such a message has not yet been

Paris. May 15.—The inquiry into the
fire at the charity bazaar has been fol
lowed with the most keen interest in
aristocratic circles here. This has
been especially the case with the evi
dence throwing light upon the coward
| lv conduct of many of the men. The
! examining judge. M. Bertelus, mi
nutely investigated the circumstances,
and it is asserted that the names of rev
eral men guilty of brutal cowardice
are known and that they will never

Mme. Rafaeli. wife of the painter,
Jean Rafaeli, and who distinguished
herself by making several heroic at
tempts to rescue her daughter, who
subsequently escaped, says it is quite
true that several young men. three or
four of whom are known, behaved mis
A friend of Dr. Feulard, who died
while rescuing a lady from the flames,
declares that he saw three ladies
struck by men. One lady, who is dy
was standing and holding a lad
der vhich had been let down from the
offices of l^a Croix, a newspaper, when
a man, in order to make her release
herself, struck her hand with his walk
ing stick, breaking all her fingers.
A'nother account, however, says she
was paralyzed with terror and was
blocking the exit.
M. Acbille Fould. a banker, says that
two men, whose names are known,
crowded past his wife and one of them
struck her in the face.
A member of the ladies’ comm ttne as
serts that a gentleman who f
upheld by the newspapers w public
admiration, was seen slashing right
and left with a stick at ladies who
were standing in his way.
The Temps, in an article on “Mascu
line Selfishness,” comments upon these
statements and on what it describes as
“stupid and shameful conduct" of stu
dents of the Fine Arts School, who
made a disorderly manifestation on
Friday evening against the decision of
the government to admit women to
certain classes. The police had to pro
tect the girls.
One sequence of the Taris fire is the
closing of numbers of small theatres
and cafes-chantants. The Palais de
Glace has been closed also.

house are not safe, owing to egr«ss from
them being obstructed by additional seats.
The Figaro's relief fund reached the
sum of 1,178.082 francs to-day, and the Rap
pel's reached ,V«7.02> francs.
While Emperor William's telegram to
President Fanre. expressing sympathy
with the families of the victims of the
fire, made an excellent impression, he
made a false step l>y contributing 10.000
francs to th<- relief fund, as his so-called
patronage is greatly resented and has
elicited anti-German articles from a large
section of the French press, which is sus
picious of the motive ot the gilt.
The Matin warmly protests against any
Franco-German reapproachment based
upon Emperor William's donation, which
it regards as a bid for French support
against Great Britain in South Africa, de
claring that France has no reason to
hamper Great Britain in that quarter, and
congratulating M• Hanotaux. the French,
minister of foreign affairs, upon refusing
Germany support in exchange for Ger
man support in Egypt.
Tho Soluil and th« Rappel publish si mi
lar articles. The Figaro, on the other
hand, says it does not believe that Em
peror William sent the gift simply to pre
pare for his visit to thi Faris exhibition

"The Emperor." the Figaro says,

mon! of Continental Europe In the face of
the rest of the world, that a great colonial
empire is indispensable to the development
of her industry. His first step is to re
conquer pacifically rads, which his grand
father took by arms. _

Democratic Members of the Finance
Committee of the Senate Will Not
Submit to a Tariff biil Substitute,
but Will Offer Amendments.
Washington, May 15.—The Demo
cratic members of the Senate Commit
tee on Finance were in consultation for
hours to-day on the tariff bill.
They decided not to offer a substitute
for the Finance Committee bill, but to
propose amendments, which, while j
they will reduce the rates, would, if
added to the rates of the Wilson law,
produce sufficient revenue to meet the
! demands of the government. They re
I gard the committee’s bill as a revenue
producer and calculate that even with
j out the proposed beer tax and tea duty
it would bring a surplus into the treas
ury. On the other hand, they regard
the House bill as nearly prohibitive
on many of the schedules and think
that on this account would be deficient i
in the production of revenue. The
Democratic members are especially
critical on the sugar, glass and wool .
