It Is Claimed THat the President and Cabinet Have Definitely Decided on Such a Course— Special Message May Accompany ttie Ruiz Report Wiien the Latter Is Sent to Congress. Sptolal to the Globe. WASHINGTON, May 30.— 1n pursu ing a policy looking to the complete independence of Cuba, President Mc- Kinley has 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\*e 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 ing every means of securing a peace ful solution of the problem, the presi dent will resort to force. The Spanish minister is fully advised of the plan, and has communicated it to his govern ment. 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 bonds, and that this power would have to be secured from the congress, where the silver senators might block the way 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 per him. We are not only patriotic.but we know enough of politics to know ' that the people of this country would condemn us if we should pursue such a course in such an emergency. It would mean the doom of the silver cause if we should undertake to stand in the way of public opinion at such a time." Senator Morgan, of Alabama, the author of the joint resolution which recently passed the senate, said: "I am a silver man, and a Democrat, LIVELY WEEK IN TARIFF DEBATE. Sugar Schedules Will Cause Exciting Discussion — Pettigrew' s Anti-Trust Amendment. WASHINGTON, May 30.— The Im pression was general albout the senate iat the close of the first week's discus sion of the tariff bill yesterday that the sugar schedule would be reached toward the close of the present week. The progress so far made, while it was mu'dh less marked yesterday than on previous days, is generally regarded as lbttle 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 been 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 readied than have yet been broached. The sugar schedule, in all probability, will excite more prolonged and ani mated debate than any otlher 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 tne Hawaiian question will come to the front in an amendment providing for tlhe 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, containing as it does many of the Wll eon law rates, but it is more or less complicated ahd will necessarily con sume time. The wood schedule will develop no little antagonism on account 'of the duty on lumber. There will be a quite determined effort to restore white pine lumber to the free list. The Tiilman resolution for a sugar investigation probably will be report ed to the senate Tuesday. It will be passed without difficulty when taken up. according to the present outlook; but Senator Tiilman will find opportunity to make another speech if there is any apparent effort at delay. The senate will not be in session tomorrow, hav ing adjourned over on account of Dec oration day. WAR- ON REED. The attempt to embarrass Speaker MONDAY MORNING, MAY 31, 1897. The president Is a Republican and a gold man. Both of us are American citizens, and I should stand with him' in a war with Spain, and so would my Democratic colleagues." 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 the 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 knownr 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 ists which goes under the name of war. People are being starved to 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 paoifico mur dered more than one soldier of Spain meets death by disease. Small-pox is working greater havoc now among the refugees in Guanabacoa, five miles from Havana, than hunger. But hun ger is taking many lives, and destitu tion is everywhere apparent, pitifully apparent. One of our consuls today said to me: 'I have been here since the Reed for the programme of inaction pursued by the majority has become the settled policy of Representative Simpson and other members of the minority, and the sessions of the house this week will witness a con tinuation of these tactics. The con 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 tihat 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 day, when the house meets tomorrow, and compel an adjournment until Thursday. On that day, if a quorum is present, the house will proceed with these two conference reports, and also ► the bill carrying a special appropria tion for the government printing of fice. BAiRS YOUXGSTERS FROM OFFICE. Official Declaration ll<'kh rdliifj MJ_ nors in the Public Service. WASHINGTON, May 30.— The policy of the postoffioe department as to the appointment of minors in the post offices has been definitely fixed and they will be debarred from chief clerkships and deputy postnuasterships, 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 postmiajaters 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 responsibilities of that office are oonoerned. m HHHHA HASN'T HEART FAILURE. Trifle Timid About Entering the Senatorial Contest. Special to the Globe. WASHINGTON, May 80.— Senator Hanna today denies the statement that he is suffering with heart failure, al though he admits that he has been warned against continued excitement and extreme political work. For this reason, he is advised by friends to re frain from having his name put for ward by the Ohio Republican state convention as a candidate for the sen ate. His friends say that his public nomination would maike it necessary campaign and a general hustling about for him to enter actively upon a publlo the state to meet with the people. In the present state of his health, that might prove to be a dangerous proceed ing. Hence, his mame may not be men tioned by the convention, except by a resolution o f appreciation for past party services. WEST POINT'S BiAfTTIiE MOWCMEXT.

Weyler's Havana Or»an Scores tne i oiu ni inn loner. HAVANA, May 30.— 1n a leading ar ticle this a. m. El Diario de la Marina makes a scathing indirect attack upon Commissioner Calhoun by criticising articles which have appeared in a Washington 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 Majina maintains that many incidents of the interior working of the mixes 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 tTWard Spain in his reports on the Cuban question, ex pressing disgust that, wjiile he blames Spain for the neutral xesulta 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 representatives 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 to visit Guanajay. Mr. Calhoun spent the day with Gen. Lee at the Ameri can consulate. Capt. Gen. Weyler went from Uncas to Carillo on Friday, but returned to Tunas today. The insurgents dynamited a passen ger train between Santa Clara and Esperanza. The baggage car was cap sized and the locomotlv eand three passenger cars were derailed, but no lives were lost. LANDED ARMS IN CUBA. Gen. Nunez Heads an Important Fill blistering- Expedition. WILMINGTON, N.

The facts were obtained from a member of the crew of the Alexander Jones, which RALLI IS A CONSPIRATOR. He Is Said to Be in the Plot to Overthrow King George. LONDON, May 31.— The Berlin cor respondent of the Daily Mail says to day: From a Russian source cornea news of a conspiracy against King Georgg of Greece fr more deeply root ed than was supposed. There is In disputable evidence that Premier Ralli and his colleagues in the cabinet are gTavely implicated in a plot to over throw the dynasty. The Kohlnische Zeitung says that Greece will be com pelled to pay a large (ff&emnite, to re duce her army to 20,000 men and to give up her fleet. LONDON, May 31.— The Times cor respondent at Constantinople says: The sultan has ordered the official censors to suppress any sympathetic allusion to or anxieties concerning the Greek royal family, or to mention the improvement in Greek funds. The po lice in the Galatea section of the oity have been ordered to arrest all persons dealing In Greek securities. LONDON, May 31.— The Athena cor respondent of the Standard says: "King George paid a visit to M.

Special to Che Globe. Sl*. CLOUD, Minn., May 30.— 8y the capsizing of a boat in the swift water in the Mississippi river, just below the dam, this morning, Charles Doroughty was drowned and his brother John and Jerry David had narrow escapes. The men were In a small>boat fishing, and while rowing for air eddy below the dam lost one of the oars, and the boat, getting beyond control, was swept Into the f art water and upset. The men all returned to port several d,ay» ago* His story substantially te as follows: On might, May 13, the Jones took on a cargo of rifles, ma chetes, rapid fire guns and ammunition at the wharf of the Wilmington, New Berne & Norfolk railway In the south ern limits of the city. Before she had entirely finished her cargo a report was started that officers were ap proaching, and that the revenue cut ter Morrill was getting up steam. 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 while been loaded with coal and other material at the Wilmington and Wel don wharf, was shortly afterwards towed out to sea by the tug Jacob Brandon, going past the revenue cut ter Colfax. On the schooner were Gen. Nunez and another officer of the Cuban army, a Cuban pilot and Capt. John O'Brien, of the filibustering tug 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 from the Jones to the schooner, and early Friday morning the tug steamed to the south with her tow ; The Jacob Brandon returned to Southport. On the way down the coast no port wa6 entered, but off Palm Beach on, the coast of Florida, sixty-two Cubans were taken on boaird. The Jones then towed the schooner to the Bahamas, and in the vicinity anchored in the open sea on Tuseday, May 18. On Thursday morning, May 20, the filibuster Daunt less hove in sight and aaime alongside the Jones and the schooner. ©he coaled from the schooner, took a cargo of arms from the Jones and with Oapt. O'Brien in command, headed for the Cuban coast, albout sixty miles atway. She left the. Joneo between 8 and 9 o'clock Thursday night, made a suc cessful landing in Cuiba near Matanzas and after an absence of twenty-four hour®, returned to the Jones, took an other cargo of war material and started for Cuba Friday night. On the last trip Gen. Nunez amd the sixty-two Cubans left the Jones and went on board the Dauntless and aiccomipanied Oapt. O'Brien. When the Dauntless left with her second cargo the Jones coaled from the schooner, towed her off Cape Cana veral, Floridia, and turned her loose. Sha sailed back and got into Southport yes terday morndng. The cargo carried out of here was valued at $78,000,- and is said to have been the second largest ever landed in Cuba. The members of the crew above re ferred to sayi there is no truth in the story that the Jones was chased and fired on by a Spanish war vessel. The Jones never saw the smoke of such a war vessel while on her trip. key's continued arming and reported Russian preparations, with other ru niors of a bellicose character, raise the hopes of some of tlhe Greek newspa pers that Greece may yet benefit from a general European war. But the ma jority of the nation, sobered by a sad experience, is only desirous that Eu rope should protect Greece against her conqueror. There is no reason to fear that either Bulgaria or Servia will abandon the policy they have followed thus far. The Turkish troops who have been sent to the Servian and Bulgarian frontiers are only intended to replace those who were withdrawn just before the war began. The reports of alarming anti-dynastlc troubles, published abroad, cause sur prise here, as there is no sign of any such movement, nor is any prominent poidtican likely to commit himself to an anti-dynastic programme. It appears that the Prince of Wales has expressed his personal desire that Crown Prince Constantine should come to London for the jubilee festivities; and this is regarded as indicative of English good will toward Greece. !» IS I RUINS.

Mc- Coy, detailed from the Third infantry to inspect the ooarpanios of the Minne sota national guard, was submitted to Adjt. Gen. Herman Muehlberg Satur day, and every member of the guard will be interested in noting the result of the inspection. Without reference to the report, which was not at his hand when a reporter for the Globe called on Gen. Muehlberg, some por tions of the report could not be secured. The position of honor again fails to Capt. Ed Bean's crack Company D, which earned a marking of 98 points out of a possible 100. The other com panies of the First regiment in Sf. Paul and Minneapolis are pretty well together with creditable markings, whale Company C, of the Third regi ment, at Duluth, In command of Capt. Resche. for the first time in many years broke into the honor column, which had hitherto been monopolized by the First regiment, and captured a score of 88 points. " This puts them in third position, second place having fal len to Company A in Minneapolis, Capt. McWade commanding, with 92 points. Two Minneapolis companies had a close struggle for fourth place, Capt. Diggles, Company B, having won the position by less than a point from Oapt. Corrislton's Company I, both com panies having a total of 87 and a frac tion. Another close struggle Is shown to have 'taken place between Companies C, Capt. Robinson, and E, Capt. Spear, both of St. Paul, the C boys holding a lead in the marking by two points. The figures were 83 for C and 81 for E. Capt. Monfort's command, Company H of this city, comes next in line, close ly followed b5 r the Red Wing company. Outside of the First regiment com panies located in the Twin Cities, the Duluth company, which showed up so creditably, and the West Duluth com pany, which stands at the bottom with 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 ■showing, with the soldier boys from Minneapolis a close second. Lieut. Mc- Coy gives considerable credit to Com pany C, of the Third, at Duluth, 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 w r hieh is afforded in cities. The West Duluth company, as stated above, foots the list with a total of 51 points. Company F, of the First regiment in TAWNEY DISGUSTED WITH TARIFF.

WASHINGTON, May 30.— "1 am obliged to remain here until the tariff bill is passed," says Congressman Tawney, of Winona. "Every member of the committee on ways and means is in duty bound to remain in Washington 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 city, the greater part of the time, Chairman Dlngley and the members of the committee on ways and means are here, and will remain here." The Minnesota congressman is angry CONVICTS FAR FROM SUBDUED. Trouble Ahead for the Offi cials of Satt Quentitt Prison. SAN FRANCISCO, CaL.May 80.— 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 baokbone of the strike has been broken, and thinks that he will coon starve the unruly men into sub jection. They are closely watched, and the guards are instructed to instantly suppress any attempts ait 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 keepers. Shouting and hammering on the doors was continued all day, but those who approached within hearing dis tance were greeted with the vilest curses. The men declare that they will never submit to discipline again, and prison officiate are fully aware that it will be a difficult task to restore tran quility. Warden Hals declares that there is no foundation in fact for the complaln-ts regarding the quality of food served. He thinks their charge 1b 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. Sentenced a Danker. NASHVILLE, Tena., May 30.— Yesterday in the criminal court at Lebanon, In the oa*e of Minneapolis, Capt Robideau., the in specting officer finds, has gone back. At the la&t annual inspection Company P stood something like 80. Lieut. Mc- Coy found It necessary this time to put them last of the companies in the 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 U. Since then, however, the members have taken a brace, and last Friday night pui ap a fairly good drill. In a number of_ other cases the re port contains notatiOft-s made by the in specting officer regarding """aTfferent" features which he found while on tho round of inspection. The city com panies he finds very naturally ahow 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 ihe first year for the new manual, but the inspecting of ficer is of the opinion that this inno vation cuts but little figure in the total marking. Between April 19 and May 27 Inspecting Officer McCoy has witnessed the annual maneuvers of twenty-eight infantry companies and two light batteries, A of St. Paul and B of Minneapolis. No reference 13 made to the battery inspection, save a brief mention of the number of men who turned out. The reason for this is that tihe 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 tha artillery is encamped at Lake City in July. 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 cf arms, firing, bayonet and setting up exer cise, and th-e various other company maneuvers. It also includes the pla toon movements, extended order drill and school of the company. The very creditable showing made by the leading companies, anci f-s].e --cially by Capt. Bean's crack company, is to be commended more than ordl- narily owing to the fact recognized by national guardsmen that Lieut. McCoy is easily one of the strictest and 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.

He say 3 thait 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* passage of the original Ding ley hill. 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 get to flopping to gether.

Wahls, of the Con go Free State, has a column letter in the Timee this morning controverting the state ments recently made by Missionary SJoblorna In this oity at a public meeting at Exeter hall, where the subject of Western African Christian missions was under consideration. Ho admits the truth of many of tho charges, such as the mutilations and the severing of hands by the soldiers, which, he says, is a native custom extremely difficult to erad icate. He admits that an attack was made on the village of Mandalcaeagigs, and that many cruelties wero practiced there. But he de clares that all these offenses have either been punished or are being investigated. The letter Is ,00 the whole, less a denial of the offenses imputed by tho missionaries than a justification of the Congo administration. The Times, commenting editorially on the reply of Gov. Wahis, thinks it incomplete, and expresses regret that the charges against Congo Free State cannot be submitted to a full and searohing Inquiry. . -^*> YERKEyg TOEUS'SCOPE INJURED.
