Washington, itfny 20. Tho secrot
archives of the stato department
which havo held tho consular reports
on tho Cuban war from tho public wero
partially disclosed Wednesday by Sen
ator Foraker, of Ohio. Durlnp tho
past week the dobate in tho senato has
been pregnant with intimations and
innuendoes of reports from tho United
btatcs olllcinls in Cuba held at tho
state department, which. If published,
would disclose a condition on Cuban
soil which would influence public opin
ion in a decided manner.
Tho facts thereforo which Senator
Foraker announced without stating
from whom they camo created a de
cided stir. Especially startlinjr was
tho letter from Secretary Olney, in
which this country offered mediation
to SDain and the refusal of that coun
try to accept the profl'ersd aid.
While one of the consular reports
was read without tho name of tho
author being1 disclosed, it is stated to
bo a communication from Consul Gen
eral Leo which fully sets forth his idea
of tho condition that exists in Cuba.
The extract was quoted as follows,
no date being given:
"I can not understand tho truth of
the claim that all tho provinces of tho
island are pacified, except that of
Santiago do Cuba, because there are
more insurgents under arms at this
time than at the period I first reached
tho island, some ten months ago, and
I do not think it a fair inference to
draw from existing conditions that the
war is approaching a termination, be
cause, in pursuance of an established
policy, the Insurgents avoid, as far a3
possible, all serious engagements.
"The impossibility of expelling the
Spanish troops from this island by
force of arms is well known to them
and they do not propose to risk the
lives of their men and the success of
their cause upon one or more pitched
battles; I conclude therefore that tho
war will drag its weary length
along so long as tho insurgents can
dig sustenance from tho ground on
the one side or money be obtained by
the other, with the continued result
of untold human suffering, loss of
human life, the murder o' innocent
men, women and children by both
sides and tho frightful havoc which
disease makes in the ranks of the
soldiers, particularly among tho un
accllmated Spaniards. The poverty and
distress of the pooplo are increasing
and tho loss of property of all sorts
daily becoming more enormous. No
one can fully appreciate tho situation
without being hero in person. The
number of poor, distressed, starving
women, children and old men of ah
races have greatly increased in this
city within tho past few weeks, whilu
in other points on tho island tho suf
fering has been proportionately
Washington, May 20. Judge A. 1!.
Montgomery, of Kentucky, one of the
five members of tho Dawes Indian
commission, by request, has presented
his resignation to the president. Tho
Xeedles, of Illinois, who was a eanii
date for commissioner of Indian aif.iirs,
is being considered for the ollieu by
President MoKinley, but charges have
been filed against his former adminis
tration of the office of United btale
marshal in Oklahoma, and have delay
ed action. If these are explained sat
isfactorily, it is lilcely Mr. Needles'
name will be sent to tho senate short
ly. No further changes in the com
mission are expected for some time.
, Washixoton', May 20. Senator Pet
tigrow gave notice Wednesday of his
intention to offer the following
amendments to the tariff bill: Increas
ing the rate on antimony from three
quarters of a cent to life per pound;
providing a specific duty of 10 cents
per pound on unmanufactured mica
and 20 cents on tho manufactured ar
ticle in addition to an ud valorem of 2J
per cent, on all classes of mica; adding
Fuller's earth to tho paragraph re
garding earths and making the manu

lution. In vain did young Mr. Bai
ley protest and appeal, and even Jorry
Simpson's endeavor to filibuster was
like chaff before tho wind. Mr. Reed
was determined that the house should
consider tho rellof resolution only, and
by tho aid of tho party he succeeded.
Thero was a large crowd gathered In
the galleries in anticipation of a big day
in tho house and what was more
to the point, thero was a quorum on
tho republican side, and beeing this,
Mr. Heed did not falter. The resolu
tion of the committee on rules to take
up the senate resolution appropriating
550,000 for the relief of Americans in
Cuba and debato it for two hours, was
adopted, and after the debate it was
passed by the house.

In spite of Mr. Calhoun's anxiety to
get to work on the Buiz investigation,
there has been considerable delay ow

otiquette and to the great number of
useless preliminaries.

asked that the crown prosecutor,
Senor Vidal, be allowed to act as his
counsel. Mr. Calhoun is not connected
with the otlico of tho American attor
