Say, did you know that our mer

The rcyiortod death of Gonornl Mnceo
Is not yet universally credltod but con
stant reiteration is shaking tho hopes of
Cuban sympathizers and unless tho
groat loador is hoard from soon tho
truth of tho Spanish advice inustbo ad

tege failed to make her point in tho
erstwhile unpleasantness on her be
loved island, is on American soil, on
her way to visit her friend Mr, Clove
land, with the hope that in his great
benignity he will intercede for her in
recovering her lost throno.
The report seoms to bo pretty well
grounded that Maceo has been killed
at tho hands of the Spaniards.
All liberty-loving Americans will
hope for tho successful contradiction of
this report. Should he be killed, there
arc others to step in and take his place
but there's particular pathos la tho
idea that the great leader should not

Out in Indiana they have a peculiar
way of disposing of bet money if the
authorities discover such. The sta
tutes in Indiana provide that the Coun
ty Prosecutor, upon learning of such
betting, shall bring suit and take
charge of such purses and turn them
over to tho Indiana public school fund,
and he can collect double the amount
of tho purse from the bettors, and then
prosecute them, causing a fine of not
inoro than $100 or less than 610 to bo
imposed in each case.

Miss Rathbone, of Ilelpru, who is
visiting at Cairo, had the distinction of
shooting the Jewel Oil Co 'a well at
Cairo Thursday afternoon. 'When
everything had been madoin readiness
Miss Hathbone climbed tho ladder in
the derrick to the top of the casing.
The go-devil was placed in her hands
and at tho given signal she started it
on its lightning trip down tho well.
She retained her nerve and coolness,
and hastily descending the ladder,
skipped over ropes, toola and casing
and joined tho crowd of spectator:, who
had gathered at a safe distance to see
the shot. Sho was loudly applauded.

I AT A CONFERENCE i
tho Wnj- nml Moans Committee Decides ,
to l'ropnre u New TnrlfT 111U.
I Wasiiinutox, Doc. 11. Tho conimit
;co on ways and means will go to work
it once to prepare a tariff bill. This
' (vas tho conclusion reached by tho re
publican members of the committee at
i conference held Thursday night in
the rooms of Representative Oros
rcrnor, called by Chnlrman Dinglcy,
it which all tho republicans wero
present, except Maj. Steele, of Judl
nn, who was unavoidably detained. ,
The conclusion reached was tho unau-
jimous expression of tho members pres-
snt. In the preparation of thu bill tho
:ommittcc will give hearings to all
persons who arc interested, and they
will bo conducted by tho full cum
aiittcc. Tho first meeting of
tho commlttco will bo held nt
10 o'clock Saturday morning at which
time if all tho democratic members aro
present, the details of the hearings,
the time when they shall begin, etc.,
, yill bo agreed upon. In case Judgo
I Turner, of Georgia, tho rapking mem
fior. of tho minority of the committee
should, not be ablo to bu prcscut on
Saturday, tho meeting of tho full com
mittee will be postponed until such
time as ho can attend.
Wasuixoton, Dec. 11. Attorney Gen
eral Harmon, responding to n request
from tho secretary of state concerning
, the question of damages accruing from
filibustering operations organized in
1 this country, has in a memoran
I ium sent to the state depart
ment, given nn opinion adverse to tho
I illowanco of any claim arising
i from filibustering organizations. Tho
. opinion declares that the mere solo or
'shipment of arms by persons in the
, United States to persons in Cuba is not
a violation of tho international law.
Individuals in the United States have
a right to sell and ship such ar
ticles to whomsoever may chooso to
buy them, but if the persons supplying
' such munitions of war from a place in
tho Uuited States are in anywise par
tics to a design that force shall bo em
ployed against Spanish authority, then
the enterprise is not commercial and
Is a violation of international law and
tho Untcd States.
The opinion further substantially
, declares that while the president may
employ military and naval force to
disperse or prevent a departuro from
our territory of expeditions, it is plain
t that such means are practical only
when there has Lecn defiance of the
government by an organized body of
Washington, Doc. 11. In accord

' .Thursday named the following sena

ference: Senator Wolcott, chairman,
Hoar, Chandler, Carter and Gear. This
is considered as conservative commit
tee with majoi ity f riendly to interna

1 Washington, Dec. 11. Kepresenta
tive Bell (dem., Tex.) Friday submitted
to the house a minority report on the
Pacific railroad funding bill, favora
bly reported at tho last session
by thu committee on Pacific rail
roads. He recommended that the
bill reported bo amended so as to pro
vide that tho debts due by tho roads
be extended at three per cent, instead
of two per cent, per annum, and that
tho extension be granted only oa con
dition that tho companies arrange to
secure the government's debt by a first
mortgage upon which it is proposed in
the bill it shall havo a second mort
gage. Ho also recommends that a provision
be inserted requiring tho law officers
Df the government to institute proceed
ings looking to a foreclosuro of its
lien and the sale of the property in tho
event that the terms of settlement aro
not accepted by tho respective com
panies. If tho bill is amended as rec
ommended ho will favor its passage.
House adjourned until Monday.
Washington, Dec. 11. President
Cleveland will lcavo tho city soon for a
few days' shooting in South Carolina
waters. After the hard work and
t close attention incident to the Vene
zuelan question and the preparation
of his annual message to congress, the
president feels tho need of rest and a
change of air, and accordingly an out
ing in southern waters has been ar
ranged for him.
Washinoton, Dec. 11. Neither Sec
retary Olney nor tho British ambassa
dor anticipate any serious embarrass
ment in tho negotiations in regard to
Venezuela arising from delay in Min
ister Andreade's return to tho
United States and the somewhat
venomous attack made upon the pro
posed treaty by Sonor Thomas My
chelena, the discarded Venezuelan
minister to London. So many personal
Intrigues enter into all matters of
South American diplomacy that speedy
action upon any subject is never looked
for. As a rule, however, the congress
of each of theso states is absolutely
under control of tho adminis
tration. The cabled dispatch
es received hero on Saturday last stat
ing that Crespo approved tho treaty,
nro regarded as practically closing tho
controversy- It has been stated that
the Venezuelan legislature could not
bo convened except in extra session
until February, and that tho constitu
tion of that country required all treat
ies to be approved by both legislative
bodies house and son ate.
In well informed diplomatic circles
it is believed that that thero is nothing
but political intriguo in Michelona's
pronunciamento against tho treaty and
that when tho Venezuelan congress
convones President Crespo will tako
such action as will cither force a rati
fication of tho treaty or prccipitato an
. other revolution.
