Tota a on 1,572,787. he total population of Cuba Is 1,572,797, including 815,205 a and 757,592 females. There are 447,372 white males and 462,926 it females of native birth. he foreign it number 115,760 males and 26,458 fe males. There are 111,898 a negroes and 122,740 female negroes. he mixed races number 125,500 males and 145.305 females. There are 14.694 a and 163 female Chinese. he popula tio of Havan a city is 235,981, and of he province of Havana 424,804. he population of he province of Matan zas is 202,444 of Pinar uel Bio 173, 064 of Puert Principe, 88,234 of Sant a Clara, 356,536, and of Santiago, 327,715.

Of he chil dren ten years of age and over, 49,414 have attended school. Of the total population, 443,426 can read and write, and 19,158 have a superior education. he Soflrage Question Th table on citizenship, illiteracy a education is regarded as specially important as forming he basis of suf frag about to be conferred. Because so a citizenships are still in pense, and for other reasons, he re turns are not quite complete, he conclusion is a at there will be at least 140,000 qualified native Cu ban voters under he proposed basis of suffrage, and as against this there will be 55,767 Spaniards whose citizen ship as in suspense he census as taken, less he number have since declared to preserve their Span ish citizenship, and plus illiterate Spaniards, not declared, are he owners of property. I is not believed at there will be any great number of the latter classes, as the total num ber of illiterate Spanish males over 21 years is only 17,426. he comparison a greater preponderance of Cuban voters an as expected. Ther are 187,826 white adult males were born in Cuba, as against 96, 083 born in Spain, 6,794 in other countries, and 127,300 colored. Negroe in the Minority.

Th native whites consti more an one-half the popula tion, or 58 per cent. he proportion of children under five years is unusual ly small, but the proportion under 21 is normal—about one-half the popula tion. Only 15 per cent, of the adults were married. Nearly nine-tenths of he inhabitants were born in Cuba. Nine-tenth of the children less than years of age do not attend school, and 43 per cent, above ten years are literate.

Seated it the great body of he delegates ^were a workers from foreign lands whose bright costumes added a dash of color to he scene. Ex-President Harrison as given a great reception. I his address he a this pointed a .. "The men^who, like Paul, have gone te heathen lands with themesBage: *We*esk not yours but you,' have been hindered by those who coming after have reversed the-message. Bum and other corrupting agencies come in with our boasted civiliza tion, and the feeble races wither before the hot breath of the white man's vices. "The great nations have combined to suppress the slave trade. Is it too much to ask that they shall combine to prevent the sale of spirits to men who, less than our children, have acquired the habits of self-restraint? If we must have 'consum ers,' let us give them an innocent diet." I closing he said: "During the Atlantic campaign of our civil war the marching and fighting had been largely in the brush. Sometimes in an advance the commander of a regiment could see no more than half of his own line, while the supports to his right and left were wholly hidden. To him it seemed as if his battalion was making an unsupported assault. The extended line, the reserve, were matters of faith. But one day the advancing army broke sud denly from the brush into a savannah—a long, narrow, natural meadow, and the army was revealed. From the center, far to the right and left, the distinctive corps, division, brigade and regimental colors appeared, and associated with each of these was the one^flag that made the army one. A mighty spontaneous cheer burst from the whole line and every soldier tightened his grip upon his rifle and quick ened his step. What the savannah did for that army, this world's conference of mis sions should do for the church." "We gather here to rehearse what God has done in the century past, to marshal anew our Christian forces, and to await the call of God for the century to come. His purpose is plain the field is open the match has begun and it rests with us what share we shall have in the glorious toil and yet more glorious victory! 'He is sounding forth the triAnpei that shall never call retreat. Be swift, my soul, to answer Him, be jubilant, my feet! Our God is'marching on.' Besponses on behalf of he dele a were made by Bev.

Accordingly, in January, 1896, the representatives of the American foreign missionary societies appointed a committee to consider the expediency of convening an ecumenical conference on foreign missions in this country within the next four years. A year later, on re port of this committee, It was voted to convene such a conference in the city of New York, in 1900, in the month of April, and to invite every Protestant foreign 'missionary society in the world to par ticipate A year later the acceptance of this invitation by the great majority of societies was reported, and the work of preparation was laid out in detail, as signed to various committees in this coun try and in Great Britain, and has been pressed with utmost diligence, vast labor, unceasing prayer and at no little cost of time and resources, until to-day witnesses the preparations complete, your presence a joyous reality, and the conference which closes one pregnant century of foreign missionary history and opens a century destined to far greater glory is here con vened. r„% he sessions of he conference will last until a 4 including Sun days. f£ A a tamm !t"a ",»l ANDREW J.ECKSTEIN DEAX,ER IN DRUGS, MEDICINE, CHEMICALS Toilet Articles, Perfumery, Books, Sta tionery.
