A Ears« Amount of Money Waiting to bo Divided-It IS well Onurded—The Cuban Officers Jeered tbe Action of Their Soldiers. Havana, 'May 28.—Only seven soldiers have appeared at La Punta to receive the I honorarium of $75 allotted by the United I States for the surrender of arms and dis bandment of the men composing the Cuban army. 'At three minutes of 10 o'clock in the morning, the hour set to begin the pay ment of the troops, Major Francis S. Dodge of the paymaster's department drove up in a four-mule team with $30,000 in gold and $9000 in silver. Six guards accompanied him, and details of men from the Eighth infantry were under arms to preserve or der among the mobs which it was sup posed would gather. Colonel George M. Randall of the Eighth infantry was present as commissioner of the United States. General Ruiz Rivera, who was today in ducted into the office of civil governor of Havana, was there to receive the arms, with a representative of General Gomez' four or five Cuban officers and 15 report ers. Half a dozen American clerks, with the rolls- of the Cuban army, sat about a , long table at the headquarters of the Kighth regiment. A bag of gold was dis played, but there were no applicants for a share of it. The inspectors spent the time in discussing why no Cubans appeared. General Rivera said that though there were 4319 enrolled privates and noncom-1 missioned officers in the Fourth corps, few I® of them lived in Havana. He explained they were outside the city, and would probably appear at other places in the province and get their apportionment. Nearly all the officers, he added, are in Havana. The representative of General Gomez, who has been acting for the latter in the interviews with Governor General Brooke, took a gloomy view of the affair. He said the Americans, in stipulating that the t0 Cubans must give up their arms, had caused a bad impression among the Cu b«ns. A group of Cuban officers, who proved to be some of General Mayia Rodriguez's I staff, had in the meanwhile assembled, They smiled at each other, twisted their musteches and grew confident as the 000 "quarter hours passed and no soldiers ap- of peared." Finally they jeered in a quiet way at the whole proceeding. False Claimant. m . Towards 11 o clock an unarmed colored sstrÄ-Ätrac Unt" or Th, Am™ military men consulted, and it was thought he was not entitled to a share of the $3,000,000, and his name not being on ..... - - B the rolls he was dismissed. Major Scott, General Ludlow's adjutant, sent word that a man named Harris, a Cuban-American, serving a sentence in the penitentiary, would be sent under guard to get his $75, so at least one man was sure to take the gratuity. About 400 men . ..had been expected, and possibly many of these will come later. But the scheme of payment, so far as Havana is concerned, I looks like a failure. Quite different re suits are expected in country districts, where the Cuban military assembly and the anti-Gomez influence is not so strong. At noon General Rivera left, remarking that it was wasting time to stay there, and Major Dodge went to the Hotel Trocha, informing Governor General Brooke of the state of affairs. Four professed privates appeared at about 11:30 without arms, but as their M names were not on the rolls they were not paid. Hnrrlson and Loabet. Paris, May 28.—Former President Har rison, accompanied by General Horace Porter, United States ambassador, this morning had an interview lasting 20 min utes with M.

Af ter a ceremonious introduction, the former and the actual president dropped all in formality and conversed in the most 1 friendly manner upon topics of interest to the two countries. | stocking Full of Powder.

Opinion is largely divided here as to the outcome. Some believe that the union will prohibit its members from accepting less pay than they at present receive for a 10-hour shift, and will order a general strike, in which event practically all the big mines will close down until such time as they can get enough non-union men to accept their teims. In this connection the local merchants, who are mostly in sym pathy with and controlled by mine own ers, will probably refuse further credit to any who strike. is • te teg Scientist« llewln a Vora*r.
