WASHINGTON, May 30.— 1n pursu
ing a policy looking to the complete
independence of Cuba, President Mc-
Kinley ihas the cordial co-operation of
every member of his cabinet. The pres
ident proposes to use every endeavor to
induce Spain to pacifically accept the
good offices of this government for the
purpose of concluding an honorable
peace, with the understanding that
Cuba shall ha-ve a republican form of
government and be freed from the pos
sibility of a military dictatorship; this
government to undertake to sustain a
civil form of government on the island.
In the event of failure, after exhaust

minister is fully advised of the plan,

At the cabinet meeting on Friday last
it was suggested by two of the mem
bers of the cabinet that in the event of
war it would be necessary to issue

to be secured from the congress, where

by demanding the issue of silver bonds.
This matter was fully considered^ and
on Saturday the president communi
cated with a leading silver Republican
senator, who sent back word: "Tell
the president that the silver senators
are as patriotic as ever, and will do
nothing in such an emergency to ham

we know enough of politics to know
that the people of this country would

Sugar Schedules Will Cause Exciting Discussion
— Pettigrew's Anti-Trust Amendment
"WASHINGTON, May 30.— The im
pression was general albout the senate
at the close of the first week's discus
sion of the tariff 1)111 yesterday that the
sugar schedule would be reached
toward the close of the present week.
The progress so far made, while it was
muclh less marked yesterday than on
previous days, Is generally regarded as
lftttle less than phenomenal as modern
tariff debates go. Senator Vest de
clares that the present bill is as far
advanced now as was the Wilson bill
after five weeks of discussion, while
Senator Jones (Ark.) asserts that as
much of the present bill was passed
over on the first day of consideration
as was disposed of in the Wilson bill
in three weeks. The Republicans gen
erally concede that good progress has
ibeen made, but they are not inclined to
felicitate themselves too much until
they see what policy is to be pursued
when questions of more general inter
est are reached than have yet been
The sugar schedule, in all probability,
will excite more prolonged and ani
mated debate than any other in the
bill. The Democrats are making very
extensive preparations for the discus
sion of this schedule, and several set
speeches will be made upon it. The
indications are that various other ques
tions of general interest will be consid
ered in connection with the sugar duty.
■Senator Pettigrew is contemplating
presenting his amendment against
trusts in this connection, and it is
certain that the Hawaiian question will
come to the front in an amendment
providing for the continuance of the
reciprocity treaty with the Hawaiian
islands. With reference to the Ha
waiian treaty, there is no longer much
room for doubt that provision will be
made to continue the present treaty in
effect. It Is probable that this will be
done by a direct declaration that noth
ing in the bill shall be construed as
abrogating the treaty. The Republi
can members of the committee are con
templating this change. If Senator
Pettigrew insists upon offering the
trust amendment to this schedule he
will precipitate one of the most inter
esting debates of the session.
The Republicans are not yet decided
whether they will caucus on the sugar
schedule, but there is more or less talk
to this effect. There are two schedules
to be considered after the conclusion of
that under present discussion before
the sugar schedule can be reached.
These are the metal and wood sched
ules. The metal schedule is not espe
cially objectionable to the Democrats,

It was stated at the White house
this afternoon by a senator who had
conversed with the president, that the
report of Judge Calhoun Is expected
early this week, and that t!he presi
dent does not intend to take final ac
tion in the development of his policy
until he receives that report. Consul
General Lee was directed to show
Judge Calhoun the copy of his recent
report, and also to give him data con
cerning later developments in Havana,
In order that the important report of
Calhoun may be an up-to-date docu
ment, upon which the president may
act, and which he may be able to lay
before both houses of congress in a
special message on the all-engrossing
topic. No doubt is expressed in any
quarter concerning the determination
of the president to bring to a close the
present condition of affairs in Cuba.
Charles Pepper, for many years
Washington correspondent of the Chi
cago Tribune, and known to be a man
of absolute reliability, has a long let
ter in the Evening Star from Havana,
in which he says:
"No one who comes to this island
will doubt, after forty-eight hours' ob
servation, that a state of savagery ex

death by a well-defined military policy.
The island is being made a desert un
der the same policy. The full meaning
of Gen. Weyler's concentration order
is being shown by its resuts. Another
year and perhaps the Insurgents will
have nothing from which to draw sus
tenance — neither men, food, nor arms.
Gomez and tlhe other insurgent leaders
are sustaining war in a desert. The
young soldiers from Spain are brave
enough, but for every pacifico mur
dered more than one soldier of Spain
meets death by disease. Small-pox is
working greater havoc now among the
refugees in Guanabaooa, five miles
from Havana, than hunger. But hun
ger is taking many lives, and destitu

ference reports on the sundry civil and
Indian appropriation bills are ready
for consideration, and this week the
leaders would like to dispose of them.
But the difficulty now Is that many
of the members have gone home, and
at present there is no quorum in the
city. This will interfere with the de,
sire of the leaders to recess until Tues

WASHINGTON, May 30.— The policy
of the postomce department as to the
appointment of minors in the post
offloes has been definitely fixed and they
will be debarred from chief clerkships
and deputy postmasterships, except in
a few of the third-class offices, where
circustances urge their peculiar fitness.
Even then they will not be allowed to
become acting postmiajsiters on account
of the legal declaration that contracts
made by minors are voidable. This
effectually bars them from being even
temporarily postmaster so far as the
assumption of the real resiponsibilitiss
of that office are concerned.

HAVANA, May 30.— 1n a leading ar
ticle this a. m. Bl Diarlo de la Marina
makes a scathing indireot attack upon
Commissioner Calhpun by criticising
articles which have appeared in a
Washing-ton newspaper over the signa
ture of Mr. Pepper, who, in the guise
of an intimate friend of President Mc-
Kinley and Mr. Calhoun, accompanied
the latter to Cuba.
El Diario de la Marina maintains
that many incidents of the interior
working of the mixed commission
which are wholly private have been
divulged by Mr. Pepper's letter, thus
tending to compromise Mr. Calhoun.
The paper also resents Mr. Pepper's
unfriendly attitude toward Spain in
his reports on the Cuban question, ex
pressing disgust that, while he blames
Spain for the neutral results of the
war, he has no word of censure for the
Cuban insurgents, whose torches are
destroying the wealth of the island.
In closing its article, El Diario de la
Marina calls attention to the fact that
two New York newspapers, whose Cu
ban representative* are scarcely fa
vorable to Spain, maintain bureaus In
Havana under the same roof with the
United States consul general, intima
ting, without much delicacy, that the
correspondents of these newspapers
are virtually under the wing of Gen.
Fitzhugh Lee, and draw most of their
inspiration from him.
Mr. Fishback, accompanied by Mr.
Pepper, went into the interior today

was started that officers were ap

Taking alarm at this, the Jones pulled
out and started down the river at
10:45 p. m., and in a few hours crossed
the bar and anchored outside. The
schooner John D. Long, having mean

material at the Wilmington and Wel

Dauntless. At the sea buoy they went
on board the Jones, anchored near by,
and Capt. O'Brien took charge of the
expedition. A hawser was made fast

to the south with her tow. The Jacob

but 51 points, all the infantry com
panies ranged between 60 and 75 points,
and for. the most part showed signs of
improvement in general efficiency.
Taken as a whole, the St. Paul
guardsmen made the best general
snowing, with the soldier boys from
Minneapolis a close second. Lieut. Mc-
Coy gives considerable credit to Com
pany C, of the Third, at DuQuth, which
won third honors, and adds that the
other two Duluth companies are al
ready showing the good effect of the
contact, argument and rivalry which is
afforded in cities. The West Duluth
■company, as stated above, foots the
list with a total of 51 points.

WASHINGTON, May 30.— "1 am
obliged to remain here until the tariff
bill is passed," says Congressman
Tawney, of Wlnona. "Every member of
the committee on ways anid means is in
duty bound to remain in Washing-ton
and look after the various schedules in
the bill; particularly to protect the in
terests of constituents. Consequently
while fully two hundred members of
the majority party are absent from the

Chairman Dingley and the members o£

here, and will rermain here."

Trouble Ahead for the Offi
cials of San Quentiti Prison.
BAN FRANCISCO, Cal.,May 30.— The
riotous convicts in the San Quentin
penitentiary caused no serious trouble
today, but they are still defiant, and
vaguely threaten that they will yet
compel the authorities to yield to their
demands. Warden Hale Is confident
that the backbone of the strike has
been broken, and thinks that he will
soon starve the unruly men into sub
jection. They are closely watched, and
the guards are instructed to instantly
suppress any attempts at organized
disturbance. During the regular exer
cises today some of the convicts not
implicated in the strike, but sympa
thizing with the leaders, pelted the
doors of the dungeons where the men
on short rations are confined with po
tatoes and pieces of bread, and in this
■way managed to give them considera
ble food before the very eyes of the
Shouting and hammering on the
doors was continued all day, but those
who approached within hearing dis
tance were greeted with the vilest
durses. The men declare that they will
never sufbmit to discipline again, ana
prison officials are fully aware that It
will be a difficult task to restore tran
quility. Warden Hale declares that
there is no foundation in fact fpr the
complaints regarding the quality of
food served. He thinks their charge
is merely a pretext for the convicts
refusing to work in the jute mill, and
positively declares that, having quelled
the first outbreak, he is now master of
the situation.

NASHVILLJB, Term., May SO.— Yeaterday in
the criminal court at Lebanon, In tho case ot
Minneapolis, Capt Robideau, the In
specting officer finds, has gone back.
At the last annual inspection Company
F stood something like 80. Lieut. Mc-
Coy found it necessary this time to put
them last of the companies in tha
First infantry.
The Hastings company Lieut. McCoy*
visited earlier in the season, but, ow
ing to their apparently apathy, he de
clined then to inspect it. Since then,
however, the members have taken a
brace, and last Friday night put up
a fairly good drill.
In a number of other cases the re<* %
port contains notations made by the in-*'
Bpeetlng officer regarding different
features which he found while on the'
round of inspection. The city com
panies he finds very naturally sihow
the most substantial progress owing
to the advantages such as opportunity
to witness the performance of their
rival companies, interchange of views,
etc. This has been the first year for
the new manual, but the inspecting of
ficer is of the opinion that this inno
vation cuts but little figure in thb
total marking. Between April 19 and
May 27 Inspecting Officer McCoy has
witnessed the annual maneuvers of
twenty-eight infantry companies and
two lig-ht batteries, A of St. Paul and
B of Minneapolis. No reference is
made to the battery inspection, save
a brief mention of the number of men
who turned out. The reason for this
is that tine artillery contest, for which
Maj. Libbey offered a prize medal, is
to be decided by Lieut. McCoy's re
port., which is securely sealed and de
posited in the adjutant general's vault
and will not be made public until the
artillery is encamped at Lake City in
It is set forth in the report that the
programme laid out in General Orders
No. 5 by the adjutant general, early
in April, shall consist of the formal
inspection in full and fatigue dress and
heavy marching order, manual of arms,
firing, bayonet and setting up exer
cise, and the various other company
maneuvers. It also includes the pla
toon movements, extended order drill

The very creaitab.e Showing rr>afl:
by the leading companies, and espe
cially by Capt. Bean's crack company,
is to be commended more than ordi
narily owing to the fact recognized by
national guardsmen tihat Lieut. McCoy
is easily one of the strictest ami at
the same time one of the fairest drill
masters in the army. Trained in the
national guard, he understands fully
the difficulties and exigencies in the
life of a guardsman, and that, coupled
with his practical experience in the
army, peculiarly fits him for the du
ties of inspecting officer. While he
is not a West Point graduate, he had
given some years to a careful study oC
military tactics and regulations, and
is conceded by his army associates as
being thoroughly posted in those things
which go to make up a good officer.
and ddsgmsted with the work of tha
senate committee on finance. He say 3
that the tariff bill, instead of having
been improved, has been butchered. He
further intimates that the senate bill
will not be accepted by the house; but
that the house Republicans will insist
upon the 1 passage of the original Ding
ley bill.
The Republican party is all torn up
over the tariff, and it has so many
wings now that it is impossible that
they should ever er^t to flopping to
gether. It is the opinion of many men
well versed in legislation that con
gress will fiddle and fuddle along until
the middle of August, and then ad
journ without passing a tariff bill.
