One of the Powers Said to Have Withdrawn
from the Concert.
Athens, Feb. 27. The popular indig

bined forces of Europe in defense of
their right to protect the Christians in
Crete.

NEBRASKA'S SENATE
Almost a fnlt In Denouncing Spanish In
dignities to Our Nation.
Lincoln, Neb., Feb. 27. In the state
senate yesterday, Senator Caldwell, of
Nuckolls county, offered a resolution
regarding the alleged indignities in
flicted upon Americans in Cuba. Af
ter reviewing the situation, it proceeds
as follows:
We resent and disapprove the pres
ent attitude and policy of the present
administration in its unpatriotic treat
ment of these outrages daily commit
ted by Spain and against our national
honor; and that we commend the ac
tion of Consul-General Lee in resigning
his consulship rather than obey the in
structions of the state department in
its unpatriotic and unamerican policy
in Cuba.
It was introduced as a party measure,
being signed by the seven republican
senators, but was adopted by an almost
unanimous vote, but one senator op
posing it.

Dry Dock Co.
Washington, Feb. 27. A bill was of
fered yesterday by Senator Gear to pay

THE WAR IN CRETE.
Sighting Continues, Notwithstanding tha.
Armistice A Fierce Battle Fought at
Malaia. In Which the Turks are Beaten
and Driven to Their Stronghold Opposed
to Autonomy Alarming Bumors A Hun
dred Moslems Killed.
Cane A, March 1. The presence of
foreign war ships off this port has not
had the effect of preventing fighting
between the insurgents and Turks,
save in the town itself, where a com
paratively small force of sailors and
marines were recently landed for the
purpose of preserving order. A skir
mish occurred yesterday at Malaxa,
a short distance from Canea, in
which the Turks were worsted, al
though they outnumbered the Chris
tians. The fighting at Malaxa
arose from a fruitless attempt on
the part of the Moslems, aided
by a detachment of Turkish
troops, to revictual the blockhouse,
where the Turkish garrison has been
blockaded for a number of days. The
Moslems made a sortie, but the insur
gents were prepared for just such a
move and attacked the party furiously,
finally driving them back. During the
fighting a heavy fire was directed upon
the Christians from the Turkish
arsenal in Canea. It had, however,
very little effect, and the Christians
still maintained the position held by
them prior to the fight.
Further fighting occurred in the
vicinity of lieraklion. As heretofore
the insurgents repulsed the Turks.
A Turkish war ship in Suda bay yes
terday began the bombardment of a po
sition occupied by insurgents, but be
fore she had done much firing her com
mander received word from the repre
sentatives of the foreign powers that
he must silence his guns or take the
consequences. This is the second time
that the insurgents near Suda bay have
been fired on by a Turkish war ship.
The Greek Korakas, who, at the head
of 5,000 insurgents has invested the
town of lieraklion, has given permis
sion to the Turks to leave the place in
order that they may cultivate the
lands adjacent to the town. His ac
tion, however, is looked upon with
suspicion by many Moslems, they be
lieving that it his intention to benefit
from the labors of the Turks by seiz
ing their crops when they are ripe.
On the other hand, those who are ac
quainted with the character of Kora
kas, declare that he is a just and hu
mane man, and that his only object in
permitting the Turks to till the fields
is to prevent suffering from famine
among the women and children in the
beleaguered town.
Several British and Italian officers
recently visited the camp of Korakas,
where they were treated with much
courtesy. They were astonished by the
excellent discipline maintained among
the insurgents and by the perfection of
their organization, all of which is due
to Korakas, who appears to be a born
leader of men. lie is enthusiastic in
support of the cause of the Cretans and
his force will prove no unimportant
factor should Turkey attempt to quell
the insurrection by force of arms.
Tefik Pasha, the new military gover
nor, arrived here yesterday and paid
visits to the several consuls.
Opposed to Autonomy Must Have Union
with Greece.
Athens, March 1. A number of Cre
tan deputies, headed by the bishops of
Retimo, visited King George yesterday,
and presented to him a memorial which,
in effect, declared that the establish
ment of an autonomous government in
Crete would not result in the pacifica
tion of the island. Such a form of gov
ernment would only prepare the way
to a fresh revolution and further en
danger the peace of Europe. The Cre
tans, therefore, have firmly decided not
to accept autonomy, but to continue
their struggle to realize union with
Greece, which the memorial is for, and
even the Mussulmans were beginning
to agree was the only solution of the
situation.
Alarming Rumors.
London, March 1. The Observer
publishes a dispatch from Paris saying
that alarming rumors are in circula
tion there. If these rumors are true
they show that the situation is ex
tremely grave. Two of the rumors re
ceive credit. One of them concerns
Russia's attitude toward the policy of
Greece, an attitude which, apparently,
nothing will mitigate. The other is
to the effect that the dragoman at
tached to the Russian embassy at Con
stantinople has notified the porte that
Russia will occupy Armenia if hostili
ties break out.
A GREAT SENSATION
Caused by tho Arrest of a Well-Connected
Youug Man for Highway Robbery.
Toledo, O., Feb. 2S. A special from
fhreve, O., says: For a number of years
the farming community of Wayne
county has been terrorized by the dep
redations of a gang of five masked
robbers who defied arrest and detec
tion until last week. At least four
deaths are traceable to the operations
of the gang, who were accustomed to
torturing their victims when the latter
were reluctant in shelling out.
On Thursday the grand jury indicted
Richard Lee, Elmer Geiselman. Elmer
Berry and John Levers, all residents of
this city and sons of respected citizens,
for connection with the outrages re
ferred to. The specific charge in each
case is highway robbery. The authori
ties claim to have positive evidence of
the guilt of the accused, whose arrest
has caused a great sensation.
AN EFFORT THAT FAILED.
Gov. Plngree of Michigan is Still Mayor of
Detroit.
Detroit, Mich., Feb. 2S. ITazen S.
Pingree is still mayor of Detroit and
governor of the state of Michigan, ac
cording to an opinion handed down
by the full bench of the Wayne cir
cuit court. The decision was up
on the mandamus proceedings brought
by Board of Public Works Commission
er Moreland to require the council
to declare the office of mayor vacant
and issue a call for an election to fiM
the vsfcancy.
AMERICAN SENTIMENT.
Debate la the Senate on the SanguUly
Resolution Derelopes the Fact that While
the Administration Stands by Spain the
People are Ready to Stand Up for tha
Bights and Protection of American C1U
aens. Washington, Feb. 2.V. With an ap
parent disregard of whether the appro
priation bills, still unacted on by the
senate, are to be passed at the present
session or are to be relegated to the
house in extra session, the senate to
day by a vote of 40 to 27 laid aside the
Indian appropriation which had already
occupied three days, and took up the
joint resolution which had been re
ported yesterday by the committee on
foreign relations demanding the imme
diate and unconditional release of
Julio Sanguilly from a Cuban fort
ress. It came up in the first instance,
as part of the morning business, the vice
president deciding that under the rule
a motion to take up the Indian bill was
not in order until after the morning
business was disposed of, and when at
1p.m. the morning hour did expire, a
motion to proceed with the Sanguilly
joint resolution was made by Mr. Al
len (rep.. Neb.), and although it was
resisted by the chairman of the com
mittee on appropriations, Mr. Allison,
and was voted against by the chairman
of the committee on foreign relations,
Mr. Sherman, it prevailed by the vote
above mentioned. The debate from
the first was of a rather exciting char
acter. Mr. Allen spoke of Spain as "a de
caying monarchy, a blot on the map of
the world and a disgrace to civiliza
tion." Mr. Daniel (dem., Va.) said that San
guilly had been treated "rigorously,
harshly, cruelly and brutally in a
manner that was a disgrace to this
country and to civilization." He spoke
of an insult having been offered by a
Spanish oflieer high in authority to
the American representative and flag,
and said if a fleet had been sent to Ha
vana to demand an apology every
American citizen would have rejoiced
at it.
When Mr. Hale (rep., Me.) read a
telegram from Havana stating that
Sanguilly's appeal to Madrid had been
withdrawn so as to facilitate his re
lease, his colleague (Mr. Fryc) de
nounced that withdrawal as a wicked
and unjust act on the part of San
guilly's counsel and declared (with an
accompaniment of applause from the
galleries) that if he had his way a ship-of-;yar
would start forthwith for Ha
vana. Mr. Hale regarded that outburst as
telling the whole story.
What his colleague and other sena
tors wanted was war; but the country
would not be drawn into war in the
next seven days if he (Mr. Hale) could
help it.
Mr. Hoar (rep., Mass.) showed from
the committee's own report that San
quilly had been only two months in
stead of five years in the United States
when he got his naturalization papers;
had then left the country, and had
never returned since (having lived in
Cuba for the last 18 years), that the nat
uralization papers were fraudulent,
and that Sanguilly was no more an
American citizen than Mr. Daniel was
a subject of Turkey.
Senators Lodge and Daniel denied
the right of the senate to go behind the
record of the superior court of New
York, from which the papers had been
issued.
Mr. Teller (sil., Col.) characterized
the conduct of the state department as
"pusilanimous," and said he expected
nothing In-tter from the next adminis
tration. He declared he would make
any power in the world respect Ameri
can citizens, if it should take all the
money, all the ships and all the men
that the country had.
Allusions by senators Hill (dem., N.
Y.) and White (dem., CaL) to the in
consistency of Mr. Sherman (rep., O.)
having the joint resolution reported
yesterday and expressing the hope that
the senate would pass to-day, and
then voting to-day against taking it
up, brought Mr. Slierman to his feet.
He defended his vote to-day on the
giound of the necessity of passing the
appropriation bills, but still he ex
pressed the hope that after the debate
had gone on for some time the vote
should be taken on the resolution.
At six o'clock a recess was taken
until 8 p. m.
DECLARATION OF WAR.
An Inflammatory Resolution Introduced
in the House.
Washington, Feb. 26. Mr. Sulzer
(dem., N. Y.) offered in the house yes
terday a bill declaring "war between
the kingdom of Spain and her colonies
and the United States of America and
their territories." The measure reads
as follows:
"That war be declared to exist be
tween the kingdom of Spain and her
colonies and the United States of
America and their territories; and that
the president is authorized to use the
whole land and naval force of the
United States to carry the same into
effect and to issue to private armed
vessels of the United States commis
sions or letters of marque and general
reprisal, in such form as he may think
proper and under the seal of the United
States, against the vessels, goods and
effects of the government of the said
kingdom of Spain and the subjects
thereof."
The measure was referred to the
xmunittce on foreign affairs.
CONSUL-GENERAL LEE.
The Attitude of Our Consul-General In
Cuba Set Forth.
Havana, Feb. 26. Dispatches re
ceived here from New York say that a
rumor is prevalent there that United
States Consul-General Lee has received
his passports. This is not true. Gen.
Lee has neither received his passports
nor has he resigned his post. The fact
Is that a day or two ago he intimated
his disposition to resign if the United
States government failed to sustain the
attitude he had assumed in the o-rjf.

LAST SUNDAY AT HOME.
Maj. McKinley Attends the Cburcli
of His Youth,
And' Beromes the Subject of an Earnest
Prayer All Preparations for I-cavlng
Canton Madeat the McKinley Home
Special Train and Its Occupants.
Canton, March L Maj. McKinley'
last Sunday at his Canton home before
setting out for Washington to be inau
gurated president of the United States,
was marked by no unusual happenings.
He went to the Methodistr church, of
which he has been a member since he
was 17 years old. The church has a
seating capacity exceeding one thou
sand and it was crowded. Maj. Mc
Kinley drove to the church, and was
accompanied by ('apt. 11. O. Hcistand
and George E. Morse, of San Francisco,
who married one of the president's
nieces.
Snow was falling rapidly and almost
obscured Maj. McKinley's figure as he
walked from the carriage to the church.
Maj. McKinley joined with evident
relish in the singing of the opening
hymn "Jesus Reigns."
Dr. C. E. Manchester, the pastor, who
was a member of Maj. McKinley's reg
iment during the war, said in his
prayer.
O Lord, bless our nation. Grant that peace
and righteousness may prevail- We pray Thee
that Thy blessing may be on the president ot
the United States in the closing days of his ad
ministration and that nothing may be done dis
pleasing to Thee. Let Thy blessing rest upon
thy servant who has been chosen to be the
chief executive of this nation. We pray Thee
to go with him; give him great faith in Thee;
may he be sustained by the prayers of Thy peo
ple, that he may carry out Thy will. Wo pray
Thee to manifest Thyself to him and to all ol
us.
Dr. Manchester found his text in the
third verse of the 21st chapter of Mat
thew: The Lord Hath Need.
His theme was "The Higher Life.
In speaking of home training he paid
in a delicate, indirect way, a beautiful
tribute to Mother McKinley.
In conclusion, Dr. Manchester said:
"How shall we preserve the peace of
nations? What are we to do for this
great land of ours? There is one
thought in all of our minds this morn
ing as our dear brother and friend goes
out to take up the duties that lie before
him: Our prayers that he do aright
the great work set before him."
B. F. McKinley, of San Francisco, an
uncle of the president-elect, arrived in
Canton yesterday. He will accompany
the presidential party to Washington.
All preparations for leaving Canton
have been made at the McKinley home.
Mr. and Mrs. Lafayette Williams, of
Chicago, who are to share the private
car occupied by Mr. and Mrs. McKin
ley, will arrive here to-day. The
presidential train will consist of
seven cars, a combination baggage
and smoking cur, a handsome
new Pullman for the newspaper corre
spondents, a dining car, two Pullmans,
a private car for Mother McKinley and
her party, and a second private car
which will be the last car
on the train and will be occupied by
the president-elect. The train will be
preceded by one bearing the Cleveland
troop which is going to do escort duty.
There will be about sixty-five persons
on Maj. McKinley's special train, most
of them being relatives or close per
sonal friends of the president-elect.
The train conveying the president
elect will leave Canton at 7 o'clock to
night and is scheduled to arrive in
Washington at 11 a. m. on Tuesday.
It will not be run at a high rate of
speed on account of Maj. McKinley's
venerable mother and other ladies who
will be passengers on it. Safety and
comfort will be the end sought rather
than swiftness.
Maj. McKinley will probably say a
few words of farewell to his friends
and neghbors before the train leaves
Canton. He is to be escorted to the
train by several thousand Canton peo
ple, and the streets along the line of
march will be brilliantly illuminated.
Maj. and Mrs. McKinley took a drive
yesterday afternoon. They are both
in possession of their usual health. In
the evening a few old friends dropped
in to say good-by.
SAVED HIS FATHER'S LIFE,
But Sacrificed Ills Own in the Brave At
tempt. Gai.vf.ston, Tex., Feb. 28. Paul L.
Lefevrc made an heroic and successful
effort to save the life of his father yes
terday morning, but lost his own.
Eugene Lefevre and son, carpenters and
house movers, were engaged in moving
an old house, but their progress was
obstructed by wire. Eugene Le
fevre, who was standing on top
of the building, grasped one of
the wires with both hands in
an effort to raise it to the top
of the hours. Instantly he was
paralyzed, blue flashes of electricity
flew from his body, his hands were
smoking and the smell of burning flesh
made the on-lookers turn sick. Paul,
who was on the roof with his father,
spang to him and tore him loose. A
his father fell on the roof, his lifa
saved, the son fell upon the wires and
his life was sacrificed, although every
effort was made to save him. The
young man was 23 years old. The e)lj
Lefevre's hands were fearfully burned
and his escape from death was miracu
lous and was due to the bravery of hit

MISSOURI GOOD ROADS.
CeaTeatitm of the State Good Roads As
sociation at Jeffeno City Beeommenda-
tlons Regarding a Bead Law.
The fifth annual convention of the
Good Roods Association of Missouri
was held at Jefferson City, continuing
two days.
Mayor Edwin Silver delivered an ad
dress of welcome to the delegates, ten
dering them- the freedom of the city.
President T. (X Stanley of the associa
tion responded, and then announced
the different committees.
The house of representative adjourned
at noon and tendered the use of toe
hall to the convention. It was ac
cepted. Nearly aU of the afternoon was spent
in a discussion of the provisions of
house bill No. 595,. which provides for
creating the office of state road commis
sioner. The bill; was- finally referred"
to the committee on resolutions.
Mr. Seitte, a delegate from Ferguson,
St. Louis county, offered the following
resolution, which- was referred to the
committee on resolutions-:
JUtdrtd, Tnat the committee on resolutlonr
be requested to report to this body the advisa
bility of submitting to the vote of the people ol
this state a constitutional amendment empow
ering the county court of any county, when at'
special elections the majority ot the qualified
voters have voted affirmatively, to levy a spe
cial tax upon real and personal property for the
maintenance and construction of roads and
bridges.
A night session was held in the senate
chamber. The discussions were on the
constitution and amendments thereto
and on poll tax for road purposes vs.
property tax.
When the convention met on the
second day the first business was to
take a fall out of "Billy Rider's beer in
spection bill. The measure came before
the association in the shape of a reso
lution for its indorsement. It was dis
cussed at considerable length, and was
defeated, the sense of the association
being that it is impracticable to raise
money for road betterment in that
way.
The following resolution was offered
by Mr. Walker, of Jackson county, and
adopted :
Whereas, TJnder the present state constitu
tion, legislation in the interest of good roads
and highways has been found insufficient and
Ineffective; and
Whkkeas. The interests of the whole people,
would be conserved by an improved condition ot
the public roads; therefore, be it
Itf ltrtd, That we, the delegates to the State
Roads convention, now in session in Jef
ferson City, are of the opinion that a
constitutional convention should be called to
remodel our constitution to present needs, and
to that end we respectfully urge the honorable
members of the house of representatives to sup
port the pending senate measure, submitting to
the people of the state the proposition to call
such constitutional convention.
Officers for the ensuing year were
elected as follows: President, T. O.
Stanley; vice-president, R. W. Dun
niphant, Neosho; secretary and treas
urer, George W. Waters, Camden.
Sedalia was selected as the place for
holding the meeting next year, and the
convention adjourned sine die .
Before adjourning, the associatio?
adopted a report of the committee o.

A Wonderful Statement
From Mrs. McGllIas to Sirs.' Flnkham.
I think it my duty, dear Mrs. Pink
ham, to tell you what your wonderful
Compound has done for me.
I was dreadfully ill the doctors said
they could
cure me but 1
; f
x gave up u
in despair BV;
and took tol
my bed. I fli
had dreadful F
pains in my I
heart,
fainting-
Knoll s
s'parks be-
fore my
my eyes
and some
times I would get so blind, I could not
see for several minutes.
I could not stand very long without
feeling sick and vomiting. I could not
breathe a long breath without scream
ing, my heart pained so.
I also had female weakness, inflam
mation of ovaries, painful menstrua
tion, displacement of the womb, itch
ing of the external parts, and ulcera
tion of the womb. I have had all these
dfemplaints.
The pains I had to stand were some
thing dreadful. My husband told me
to try a bottle of Lydia E. Pinkham's
medicine, which I did, and after taking
it for a while, was cured. No other
kind of medicine for me as long as you
make Compound. I hope every woman
who suffers will take your Compound
and be cured. Mrs. J S. McGnxAS,
