They IJelicve They Have a Better Chance of an Acknowledgment of Their Belligerent Rights by Fuch Action. Policy of Cuban Leaders. Gonzales de Quesada, secretary of tin Cuban revolutionary party, with head quarter in New York, has been in Wash ington recently on private business. He did not sit Secretary OIney, nor were any steps taken toward securing the recogni tion of the Cuban insurgents as belliger ents. The ioIiey of the Cubans in seek ing recognition of the FniteJ States has been outlined substantially as follow: No application will be made to the execu tive branch of the government until Con press assembles. It is the feelir.g that even if the executive authorities were lis lMsed to recognize the Cubans, the action would involve such grave responsibility that the executive branch would desire to have the co-operation and supiort of Congress. Care will be taken also to see that there is uniformity in the steps pvo losed to Congress. In this way the mis takes made at the time of the last Cuban uprising will be avoided. At that time there were no less than forty different Cuban resolutions referred to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, promising reeotrnitioii. arbitration and many other plans, all intended to favor Cuba. In the end this diversity of proposals prevented an agreement on any one course. Crank in the White House. Another crank turned tip at the White House Tuesday in the person of Owen Jones, hailing from New Y'ork State. lie Lad previously addressed a threatening letter to the White House, so the olliccrs were on the watch for him.

Keorts of Chi ago public school prin cipals of the enrollment of pupils for Sep tember gives gratifying evidence of the substantial growth of Chicago and evi dence not so gratifying of the inability of the Hoard of Education to provide suita ble school accommodations for the large number of new pupils. The total enroll ment is 1S'".74!. an increase of 11.1! 2 over the enrollment for September, 1N'L To accommodate the rapid and steady growth in school attendance about twenty new buildings are erected annually and forty have licen hniit since Jan. 1, JN?U. Hut in spite of this activity the rermris for the last month show that the schools ' are so crowded that although sittings are rented in other buildings for 11, (KM pupils, there ore 10.11! I win are unable to fit more than half a day's hoollng daily. A teiii'tornry floor gave wny nt the cere mony of laying the corner sUae of Jl new St. Mary's Catholic Church at Lo rain, Ohio, Sunday precipitating many men, women and children into the base ment.

A score of doctors were called, and they were kept buy for hours caring for the injured, several of whom will die. The accident was due to defective tim bers. The contractor was told the plat form was insecure, but he said it would hold all the people that could be crow de l upon it. The Cnitcd States Government, repre sented by United States District Attor ney .lohn C. Hlack and National Hani; Examiner .lohn C. Mclveon, Friday took steps at Chicago to teach defaulting bank employes a salutary lesson. Harry J. L. Martin, for four years teller of the Com mercial National Hank, was arrested on. a warrant sworn out by .Mr. -McKeon, charging him with embezzling $-1.10.

Wilson, paying teller of the Illinois National Hank. who. with Receiv ing Teller Renjamin Jones, stole $1J,(MK) of that concern's money, was dumfounded when placed under at rest, as the guaran tee company which was on his bond and personal friends had made good the amount he stole from the bank. Hut this is no palliation of.his offense in the eyes of the Government, and he will be prose cuted just as vigorously as if he had not returned one cent of the stolen money. The penalty is not less than five, nor more than ten, years' imprisonment. SOUTHERN. At Charleston. W. Ya.. A. J. Scott was hanged for the murder of his wife. At Cole City. (Ja..

Dr. Hooker, the private secretary ot Mgr. Satolli. has been appointed to the chair of ethics in the department of phil osophy at the Roman Catholic University at Washington. Secretary OIney positively refuses to say anything touching any correspond ence he has had or intends to have rela tive to the settlement of the Venezuelan boundary dispute, so it cannot be posi tively ascertained whether he has taken any steps recently to induce Great Urit ain to si limit the matter to arbitration. It an he stated, however, that since Sec retary Grcsham's death and up to a very recent date the department had nM made a single move in that direction. Hut in asmuch as Congress by resolution direct ed the executive to use its best efforts to bring the dispute to arbitration, it is very probable that, having in mind the near approach of the assembling of Congress, Secretary OIney has been giving the sub ject the attention it demands and is form ulating his views to be communicated to Ambassador Rayard upon the return of the latter from his vacation in Scotland. The Hon. S. W. Lanioivux. Commis sioner of the General Land Otliee. has made his annual report 1o the Secretary of the Interior.

FOREIGN. While South African and other mining shares suffered a cousidet able decline Fri day at London there was a suHicieiit rally before the close of the market to ap parently show the bull control of the sit uation. All the markets were demoral ized, heavy sales from Paris being the cause, as there is a desperat campaign going on there to freeze out the small fry. To this is aded the pronotuicc! opposition f th French Governnicnr. which is try ing to stop the mad craze of the public to inwst in mines at a s.icrilice d" invest iiicnts in rentes. The ultimate smash, however, is considered inevitable. A spell of intense heat in England cul minated Tuesday in a sudden drop of 1!." degrees in b'inperature. Vnis was fol lowed by a hiavy gab, which can sc I much damage along the coasts. Two steamers were driven ashore on the t reaclicrus Goodwin Sands. At llfra conibe, on the north coast f Devonshire, six would-hc life-savers wen drown'l while attempting t rescue the crew of the ketch Arabella, which was ashore in a dangerous position. Several vessels arc reported ashore on the Gore Sands. Their crews have been rescued by the lifeboat nieii. Thre' fishing-smacks hailing from RIackpool foundered, and in spite of the efforts which the lifchoat-mcu made t assist them five of the lishirmeii were drowned. Irving M. Scott, president of the Cnion iron works, is coming home n the China, which is due in San Francisco next week, but he is not bringing any contracts to build batlcships for the Japanese Gov ernment. On boarl the China is als Gen. Williams, one of the agents of th4 Cramps, who was in Japan for the same purKjse as Mr. Scott and whose mission met with the same result. The Japanese Government lias not let any contracts for additions to its navy to American or other foreign shipbuilders for the reason that until the imperial liet meets in November the Minister of Marine will not know just what money will be at his service. Kven after appropriations are made it is doubt ful if any contracts will be made with American shipbuilders, at hast not for some time, the reason being that the peo ple of the Mikado's empire have become si.Hblenly impressed with the idea that they can construct tlwir own battleships and cruisers. This decision, of course, shuts out Hritish and German shipbuild ers as well from a slice of the Japanese maritim' patronage. A slight earthquake shok 'Wednesday added to the reign of terror prevailing at Constantinople. This, with the blood shed and rioting, the imprisonment of about "0 Armenians, the killing of pris oners in edd blood and the presence of troops under arms at all points, is well calculate! to excite even the most phleg matic Turk.
