Havana, March 13.—The Cuhan mili
tary assembly, in public session Sat
urday afternoon, impeached Gen. Max
imo Gomez and removed him from his
command as general in chief of the
Cuban army, the first ballot taken re
sulting in 26 votes being cast in support
of the motion to impeach and remove
Gen. Gomez against 4 in opposition.
The meeting lasted from o'clock
until seven.
Peopl the Action.
he assembly is being strongly cen
sured by Cubans on all sides, and there
were popular demonstrations Sunday
afternoon in favor of the deposed com
mander in chief, the crowds shouting
"Long live Gomez!" and "Death to the
assembly!" Gen. Gomez during the
day received numerous visitors, all of
assured him of their affection
and loyalty and that the declarations
by the assembly, on whatever subject,
could not represent even the army, as
the elections which gave its members
their present positions are really void
able for illegality and political jobbery.
Gomez Issues a Statement.
Havana, March 13.—Gen. Maximo
Gomez has issued the following state
men to the Cuban people and army:
"By the use of the supreme faculties with
which it is endowed the assembly, repre
senting: the army only, has deposed me as
commander in chief of the Cuban army,
which grade it conferred upon me during
the last war. As commander in chief I al
ways followed the dictates of my best con
science and the call of great national needs.
I endeavored in all circumstances to ful
fill my duty. The assembly considers the
fact that I do not aid it in efforts to raise
loans, which later would compromise the
greatest financial and political interests of
Cuba, to be an act of insubordination and
of want of respect. The primary cause for
the action taken against me is my convic
tion that Cuba should begin the exercise
of its own sovereignty, as a republic of
union and concord, proclaimed at Monte
Cristo and sustained unimpaired on the
field of battle, free from all compromise,
keeping the nation's honor spotless. A
for the rest, as a sincere man, I confess I
thank them, because they relieve me of
great political obligations and also leave
me free to return to my abandoned home,
which, during 30 years of continual strife
for the good of this country that I love so
much, has been my one aspiration. For
eigner as I am, I did not come to serve this
country by helping it to defend its just
cause as a mercenary soldier, and, conse
quently, since the oppressive power of
Spajn has withdrawn from this land and
left Cuba In freedom, I have sheathed my
sword, thinking I had finished the mission
which I had voluntarily imposed upon my
self. I am owed nothing. I retire content
ed and satisfied at having done all I could
for the benefit of my brothers. Wherever
destiny rules that I make my home, there
can the Cubans depend upon a friend."
W Carry Out tlie Gomes Deal
Washington, March 13.—This coun
try has never recognized the Cuban as
sembly as. anything more than a volun
tary association of certain Cubans,
hence its action as to Gen. Gomez will
not interfere with the plans, of the
United States regarding the disband
and payment of the so-called
Cuban army. Th arrangement
as made with Gomez and it will be
carried out it him. agreed to dis
band his troops, and they will be paid
on that basis. Th United States au
thorities do not know that such a body
as the Cuban assembly exists, and
Gomez, being about to lay down his
arms, is naturally independent of the
assembly and does not hesitate to say
so.
Gomes Thei Idol.
Havana, March 14.—The demonstra
tion by the people yesterday in favor
of Gen. Gomez and against the Cuban
assembly wast an imposing spectacle.
Over 60,000 persons paraded the streets
in an orderly manner, shouting "Long
live Gomez!" and "Down with the as
sembly!" Many of the houses were dec
orated with Cuban and American a
and pictures of Gen. Gomez.
May Requir Force
Havana, March 14.—Should a portion
of the Cuban army support the mili
tary assembly in rejecting the Gomez
Porter agreement and in refusing to
disband without a larger sum than $3,
000,000, forcible disarmament, in the
opinion of Americans well qualified to
judge, would follow.
Only One
Havana, March 15.—Gen. Gomez, in
discussing the stand taken by the Cu
ban assembly, said yesterday at he
could recognize only one power in the
island—that of the United States*—
and at in his opinion the assembly
as only trying to get. more money
out of the United States. President
McKinley as instructed Gen. Brooke
to disperse and dispose of the assembly
should its members advocate a of
violence.

Havana, March 16.—Gen. Gomez has
decided to proceed with the plans
agreed upon for distributing the $3,

hours Wednesday with Governor-Gen
eral Brooke regarding details.

PROSPECTS ARE BRIGHT.
General Increas In W a of E
ploye a Much Bette
Time In the Busines World
New York, March U—R. G. Dun & Co.'s
weekly review of trade says: "By far the
best assurance of good business in the fu
ture is found in the general rise of wages.
The general advance in earnings of cotton
mill operatives, in most cases ten percent.,
of iron and steel workers generally ten per
cent., and tin plate and sheet workers from
Ave to ten per cent, and of coal miners, in
some large districts, about as much, has
set a pace which most establishments will
follow which have reduced wages in the
past years of depression. Those who fail
to comprehend what such a change may
mean have only to consider that a tenth
increase in the wages of all labor would
put into the markets anew buying demand,
in amount about three-quarters of the en
tire value of exports to all countries.
"The volume of business shows no signs
of decrease and for the first full week of
March has been about 51.7 per cent, greater
than in the same week of last year and 60.9
per cent, greater than in 1892.
"Exports of wheat do not yet fall below
last year's, as many have for some months
expected, and the Atlantic exports, flour
included, have been for the week 3,309,092
bushels, against 2,890,879 last year, and Pa
cific exports 603,187 bushels, against 1,280,618
last year, with other exports of 407,569 bush
els. Western receipts were 4,071,017 bushels,
against 2,752,918 for the same week last
year, and the output from the country goes
far to check apprehension as to deficiency
of the crop. The price is about two cents
lower for spot, and corn is about one cent
lower, with western receipts 4,569,404 bush
els, against 5,487,203 last year, while exports
have been for the same week 3,537,887 bush
els, against 2,957,851 last year.
"Failures for the week have been 182 in
the United States, against 248 last year, and
37 in Canada, against 36 last year."

London,, March 16.—The new ambas
sador from the United States, Mr.
Joseph H. Choate, was a guest of honor
at a brilliant gathering here Wednes
day night:—the banquet of the Asso

he encouraged friendship between
Great Britain and the United, States.
While they would always be rivals, he
said, all disputes should be settled by

Manila,March 16.—Aguinaldo's forces
with another crushing defeat
Wednesday in the most important en

were taken prisoners by the Americans.
Scores of corpses of Filipinos slain in
the battle floated down the river. Th

Drive Back
Tw thousand well-armed natives op
posed the advance of Gen. Wheaton's
brigade. They were apparently the
pick of the Filipino army, for they
showed more bravery and determina
tion than any body yet facing the Unit
ed States soldiers. In spite of vigorous
resistance the natives were driven back
by the Americans, who poured deadly
volleys into their ranks.
Complet Root
The engagement, which continued
6ieveral hours, ended in he complete
rout of the Filipino force. Th men
under Gen. Wheaton hold undisputed
possession of the towns of Taguig,
Pateros and Pasig, or at least what

destroyed by fire.
Prisoner Unarmed.
A Tagui 350 Filipinos surrendered
to the Washingto regiment, and at
Pasi 175 were captured by the Twen

unarmed, and it is presumed they exe
cuted the threat of throwing their

bodies of 106 dead Filipinos were found,

"Why, father, what have you been doing
to yourself?"
"Nothing, daughter, nothing. I—I have

Sure enough, the colonel had on anew suit
of clothes. The effect was gorgeous and
startling. The trousers were a loud check,,
very tight and a trifle short. The coat wa»
a short blue frock, mottled with dark red.
He wore a cheap red tie. The ludicrousness
of the situation finally overcome the
