YV.isiiinutox, April IS.— The House of
Representatives by a vote of 179 to 139
today knocked out the Semite resolu
tion recognizing tlie Republic of Cuba.
The decision was reached only after
the most desperate contention between
tiie friends of recognition and their op
ponents. It was like tin* struggle of two
mighty wrestlers, first one yielding to
the opposing force and then the other.
Speaker lfosd was never known before
to work so hard and openly for any
cause. lacking confidence in the
strength of his own aids, and unwilling
to take any chances he even extended
his efforts to the Democratic side of the
House. , .
Every Republican in the House who is
a follower of the Siieaker was enlisted in
the cause of non-concurrence in the
.senate amendment. The most terrific
pressure that can be brought to bear on
party men was put upon those Kepubli
cans who insisted on voting for concur
rence. Lorimer, of Chicago, and Brom
well, of Ohio, were subjected to the most
severe pressure. Openly in the presence
of the whole assemblage, large groups of
the Speaker's followers pressed around
them, arguing and gesticulating.
Kvery other recalcitrant was sur
rounded by a group of protesting and in
sistent members. Every argument that
could appeal to a partisan was made,
after attempts at logical reasoning and
special representation had failed.
In the delegations of eacli and every
State, there was a fierce struggle, the
Foraker people fighting with all force for
the Senate resolutions.
Meanwhile Mr. Reed moved slowly
about among the members or held whis
isired conferences with his lieutenants,
i On the Democratic side of the House
tliere was almost as much confusion.
A few were insisting that the proposi
tion to concur, with an amendment
striking out the recognition of the Re
J public, should be supported by Demo
| crate, but the main body insisted on
simple concurrence in the Senate amend
merit. A caucus was suggested and on
the point of lx*ing asked for, but was
abandoned as being calculated to give a
partisan character to their action.
The forces of the radical pro-Cuban
Republicans—the "recalcitrants"—which
a few days ago ntimberel over a bun
dred, slowly melted away under the
heat of friction and party pressure. .Inst i
before tlie House met at 12 o'clock the j
leaders of the recalcitrants claimed but
about eighteen on w hom they could
certainly rely, hut said they would have
more than that on the vote.
Tlie plan of procedure adopted was for
the Administration and the "conserva
live lorees to all vote to concur tit the
resolution, with an amendment striking
out the recognition of the Republic of
Cuba. The opposition motion concured
without further amendment, tins latter

bers of the House who agree with the

Populists had an informal conferenct j
cided ti) stamUo'a man fo"'"tlte Senate j

The strong argument on the conserva- [
live side was that if the House accented i
t be Senate resolutions, as reported by!
the Foreign Registrations Committee of
that body, the Senate coulct afford to,
yield on the question of immediate |
recognition ot the Republic. They in -1
sisted that the Senate could afford to do i
this since war was rendered inevitable
by the resolutions; even witlumt the
recognition clause, and that the early j
recognition of independence uns also
assured witlumt, that clause.

Defences of Delaware ltiver.
The rep tied establishment of sub
marine mines in tlie Delaware River,
„ e ar Fort Delaware, has been the cause
u f considerable alarm to shad fishermen,
w hnse season is now well started, and to
others, who fear interference with their
vocation in the vicinity of the mines.
Major Raymond, the United States
engineer officer in charge of the defences
of the Delaware River was asked what
ground there was for their fears, and how
the planting of the mines would inter
fere with the navigation of the river.
Major Raymond said that, of course,
submarine mines have vet been
planted in the river. When it is done
due notice will be given.

Immediately after the opening of the
United States District Court in the
Federal Building yesterday morning,
United States District Attorney Ijewis ('.
Vandegrift arose and addressing Judge
Bradford, announced that his term of
office had expired on Sunday evening.
Continuing, lie said that lie
had received a commission as United
States District Attorney ad interim from
tlie department, which lie requested to
be filed.
The commission was dated April ISth,
1898 and read as follows:
"Whereas, A vacancy in the office of
attorney of the United States for the
district of Delaware exists by tlie ex
piration of the term of Lew is ('. Vande
grift, and
"Whereas, The public interests and
the business of the said office require
that the same shall be filled at once,
"Now, therefore, by virtue of the au
thority vested in me by the 793d section
of the Devised Statutes of the United
States, I, George Sliiras, Jr., associate
justice of the Supreme Court of the l Jiited
States, alloted to the Third district, do
hereby appoint Lewis C. Vandegrift
j f( serve aa such attorney of tlie
United States until an appointment
j s made by the President and the
appointee is duly qualified, and no
i ollKer .-*
When Clerk Smith finished reading
t iie commission, Mr. Vandegrift was
sworn in by Judge Bradford, after which
tlie commission was filed. During these
ceremonies the court officials, the grand
j uror9 and the few visitors remained
8tamting .
The proceeding reappointing Mr. Van
degrift is due to the fact that lie is the
| on j,, one at the present -time who could
I intelligently conduct the case against
William N. Boggs and the persons who
assisted him fn the looting of the First
National Bank of Dover.
This Ml no way affects the candidacy
of Hugh G. Browne, Esq., and William
M. Byrne, Esq., tor the appointment to
the office of United States District At
torney. as it is understood that at the
conclusiMist.t the trials of Mr. Boggs and
toy othdjjMfc,^pru^yesident McKinley
will appoint either one or the other of
the gentlemen named to the position.
1 he concensus of opinion at this time
of both Republican and Democratic poll
bicians is that Mr. Browne will secure
the prize. .
This does not reflect in the least on
the candidacy ot Mr. Byrne, but it is
contended that Mr. Browne deserves the:
office from the fact that lie is eminently]
qualified for the position and is the ■
chairman of the Delaware State Repttbli- ]
can committee.
Mr. Byrne has also
zealous worker for tl
party; is a so capable of filling the othce. j
