THE : CONTROL tOF CUBA. :
the Question It Now Receiving Earnest
' Consideration. *
: Washington, Aug. 17.—The ream-
Itructlon of affaire in Cuba, Porto Rioo,
and : throughout | the Spanish' West j In
dies, is receiving earnest ooaideration
in official quarters and at the Whit©
House. J Today the president saw a
number of calleiß ie reference: to this
reconstruction in our new insular de
pendencies. * „.
Major-General Fitzhugh Lee in com
mand of , the Seventh army corps at
Jacksonville, came here on a special
telegiaphic summons from Secretary
Alger, and it was with the latter that
be conferred for an hour with the presi
dent. ' It is generally expected that
General Lee will head the military
commission which will adjust affairs in
Cuba, and also he has been •strongly,
urged "for the governorship of that
island, after the functions of that com
mission cease. On both of these points,
however,. General Lee asserts he knows
nothing. '$ He admitted, however, that
he had been* talking over matters in
Cuba generally. ; Then he added: '. ■*
"The first work which will have to
be done in Cuba will :be to make ar
rangements by which all the municipal
machinery can be put in operation in
all the towns, and governmental ma
chinery throughout the island. There
will have to be a military control, I
3uppose, until « such a time as the peo
ple interested can organize, and put
into operation, a government which
should be stable and \ strong enough to
impartially protect the interests of
Spaniards, Americans, Cubans and the
people of other nationalities now on the
island, or who may hereafter go there."
"Is there a pobability of Spanish in
terests suffering there through the
Cubans?"
"The Spanish property-holders,
merchants and all other classes of
Spaniards naturally would unite with all
the beet of the conservative inhabitants
for the presevatiou of the interests of
all the citizens, and I think they will
help the natives and the Americans to
maintain a strong, safe government.
This would be natural, for no olase of
UNCLB SAM'S NEW TERRITORY, AS A RESULT OF THE WAR.
The above map shows the territory that hue been, or will undoubtedly be, added to the
CnltM States as a result of the war with Spain-Cuba, Porto Itlco, the island of Guam,
or Guahan, In the Ladronee, and a coaling station and port in the Philippine*.
people would be more interested than
they are in maintaining property and
all other rights.
"The most difficult problem is tho
first organization of a preliminary form
of government, as later the island will
bo very rapidly Americanized, and all
such questions will take care of them
selves. As to the probability of the
Cabana attaining a stable goverment,
I presume that as soon as possible a
proclamation will be issued, setting
apart a date for the holding of a general
election for a chief executive of the
island, and for a legislative body, to
which all matters affecting the future
of the island will be referred.
Spaniards Are Leaving.
Santiago de Cuba, Aug. 17.—The
Spanish steamer Isla de Luzon sailed
this morning for Spain, having on
board 2,136 Spanish soldiers. The
steamer Isla de Panay will probably
sail to-morrow and she will be followed
by the Do Satruesetegui. The Monte
video arrived this morning and will
begin loading at once. The embarka
tion of the prisoners is being pushed
with great activity. This is rendered
imperative by their horrible condition.
The mortality is so great in the Span
ish camp, where disease is rampant,
that no longer are the dead buried. A
funeral pile of 10 dr 12 bodies is made,
saturated with kerosene and set fire to,
cremating the bodies in the open air.
Columbus Is Blamed.
London, Aug. 17.—The \ Madrid cor
respondent of ; the Times says: The
dominant tone of the press comment is
philosophical resignation. .; The educat
ed classes are not making any attempt
to find i scapegoats or to j console them
selves with vituperation of the victori
ous enemy. The colonies, instead |of
enriching, have impoverished the coun
try. Columbus, in discovering the
New World, was not Spain's ■ bene
factor, but her evil genius. -Therefore
one leading paper. opposes the sugges
tion that his remains should be brought
home from Havana. \

FINAL BATTLE IN PORTO RICO.
Bchwu'i Forcea Wew Attacked Sunday
—Spaniards Bepulwwl.
Ponce, Porto Rico, Aug. 17.—Gen
eral Bohwan*s column was attacked be
fore Mayague* and Lares. As the
Eleventh infantry, under Colonel
Bnrke, was descending the valley o!
the Rio Grande, they were fired npon
from a hillside by a force of 1,600 Span
ish, who were retreating toward the
north. The fire was returned, and the
Spanish were repulsed, with, it is sup
posed, considerable loss.
Colonel Soto, the commander of the
Mayagnez district, was wounded, and
was afterward overtaken in a wayside
cottage. He was attended by two ser
geants, who surrendered. The Ameri
cans suffered,no loss. The artillery was
not engaged. General Schwnn had not
received news of the signing of the pro
tocol, when the action occurred, but
obtained it yesterday afternoon. The
repots from General Miles are meager.
An Unfortunate Belief.
Hong Song, Aug. 17.—Belated mail
information from Manila is to the effect
that there has been renewed activity
on the part of the Spaniards of late,
due to the belief that American re
sources have been exhausted and that
MoKinley is suing for peace. Accord-
Ing to the same authority the insurgents
throughout the island of Viscaya are
reported to have signified their inten
tion of joining Aguinaldo. The Ger
man cruiser Kaiserin Augusta has ar
rived here, having left Manila Satur
day. She reports the situation there
unchanged, but her officers are ex
tremely reticent.
CUBAN ARMY TO DISBAND.
Report That the United States Will Pay
the Men Off.
Santiago de Cuba, Aug. 17.—A secret
meeting was held tonight at the palace
between the commanding officers of the
American army, and the Cuban leaders.
The strictest secrecy was maintained,
but it can be said with good authority
that General Garcia was present. The
meeting lasted an hour and a half.
The information obtained is to the
effect that the Cuban situation was
thoroughly reviewed, and it was re
solved to disband the Cuban army, and
the United States should pay the men
off. This will involve the expenditure
of $15,000,000, but it is most important
to the ptosperity of the island, where
the wealth is almost entirely agricul
tural, nobody daring to oultivate his
lands while the insurgent bands are in
the field, laiding and burning.
Sutro Was Insolvent.
San Francisco, Aug. 17.—The Even
ing Post says that the 13,000,000 estate
of the late Adolph Sutro is insolvent,
and that unless the creditors agree to
•withdraw their claims for the time be
ing the estate will rbe : 'hopelessly
swamped. Much of Sutro's property is
mortgaged, and interest and other nec
essary expenditures are eating the estate
up very rapidly. ; • The | executors of the
estate say that if time is given them
every posible demand will be met and
that there will be a large residue for the
heirs. The attorneys for the ■ estate
deny that s there is another will, and
say that Mrs. Kluge's claims are
groundless.

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
? (Reported toy DorolngrHopklns £> Cnj££*2
[Reported by Downing, Hopkins *Co., Inc..
Board of Trade Broker*, 711 to 71* Chamber of
Commerce building. Portland, Oregon.) i •
The cash situation, which } : is gener
ally the main"element in the market,
chows little change. The derrand in
some quarters failed to show/a* much;
urgency, but in others it was fully up
to previous weeks. : The scarcity of
cash wheat, the result of fanners refus
ing to soil freely, is the ? underlying
strength. There were numerous bids
of 6@ 7c over September for No. 2 red,
and 8c over ■ for No. 3 hard for export,
but sales* were slow. No. 2 red[brought
72c and No. 2 hard 71 % o free on board.
In ordinary years this price would be
an attractive one to farmers, but this
season it is not. 1 What \ the outcome
will be is; a puzzle. Farmers may be ;
able to carry their point and force spec
ulators to pay better prices. A great
deal depends upon: the magnitude of
the export demand, the rally at the
last was I helped by! reports that cash
wheat in Kansas City was np2@4c,
and Minnesota v 80 on Cash wheat.
There was: also a 4 report about Russia
prohibiting exports, btit it was denied
by export houses |in | Paris; Receipts
everywhere were under last-year's.
The Price Current was rather bull
ish, and London reported the continent
buying'cargoes off .-:■ coast.',v It is ', said
that practically all the stock of the
contract wheat: at Chicago will bo ship
ped out ■ before the end of - the > week.
With no etock there ' and futures at a
discount there is not muoh prospect of
bears making large profits by. selling on
the breaks. ' The government suggests
a spring wheat crop for Minnesota of
79,831,000 bushels; North Dakota, 46,
--451,000 bushels; | South Dakota, 41
898,000 bushels, a total fbi the three:
states of 167, 000 bushels. Last
year they had ? 109,686,000 bushels:
The general belief |is that the depart
ment's acreage is too low.
I Conflicting reports in regard to the
crop situation in Russia were oircn
lated. The first received were unfavor
able. They started ~ inquiries ; from
other ; sources. Dreyfus' man at New
York said that the Russian situation'
was favorable, though less in some sec
tions, and deliveries were rather light,
owing to rains having delayed thresh
ing. D. fiingham's ,-. information was
that the Russian crops were good. :

Plain soda In water —so often recom
mended for dypeptics—is a disagreeable
drink to many people; but a delicious
drink may be prepared to take its place
that will prove quite as beneficial.
Take two pounds of granulated sugar,
two ounces of tortark aoifl, one and
one-half ounces of essence of winter
green, three pints o* water and the
whites of two eggs. Mix the sugar
with the aold and wterr, let it come to a
boll, and boil hard for two minutes.
When cool stir in the wintergreen and
the eggs beaten to a froth. Put into
jars and set in a cool place. Pnt two
tablepoonsfuls or less of the syrup in a
glass of cold water and foam It up with
soda, using from one-fourth to one
haif teaspoonful of the soda, just
enough to make ft foam thoroughly;
and it will not only be beneficial, but a
delicious summer drink.
Fine Restrain*.
A writer in the New York Ledger
says that he once tried to comfort a
poor Japanese Woman, who was crouch
ing beside her dying husband, and con
trolling herself by an effort which
seemed to shake her very being.
"Cry," 1 said; "it will do you
good."
She laid her slim, brown'flnger upon
her trembling red lip, and shook her
bead.
"It might disturb bim, M she whis
pered.
The next day came, and the man was
dead. Then the wife lay prostrate un
der extreme grief and the strain of this
long enforced self-control. Again I
said to her: "Cry; it will do you
good."
But the soft reply came quickly: "It
would be most.rude to make a hideous
noise before the sacred dead."
