the lady was to be married to another

WASHINGTON, March 2.— Chairman
Boutelle, of the«house comniltta en na
val affairs, has not. yet .submitted to
his committee the letter he received
last Friday from Assistant Secretary
of the Navy Roosevelt, asking for the
passage of a special act authorizing thc
enlistment of 1,500 additional men and
boys in the navy.
The subcommittee on naval affairs In
charge of the regular appropriation
bill had already agreed 'upon an in
crease of the enlisted men by 1,250,
bringing the total of enlisted men up
to X.,000.
The sentiment of the house cemmitte -
, is extremely liberal, and Mr. Foss, of
; Illinois, a member of the committee.
j said today that if the navy department
[ asked for a special act and that ques
tion was officially submitted to the
! committee he had no doubt that it
| would receive indorsement by the com
j mittee.
Action on the question of ships and
dry docks will be largely influenced by
the outcome of the investigation into
the Maine disaster.
It has already been practically de
cided that the price which the secre
tary of the navy shall be authorized to
pay for armor plate for the ships now
approaching completion shall be $400
per ton but no formal vote has yet
been taken on this proposition by the
subcommittee. The work of the sub
committee as far as it has gone is now
be.ng reviewed and ratified by the full
committee. Thus far the subcommit
tee's action has not been revers d.
The full committee has ratified the
action of the subcommittee in recom
mending an increas? of $100,000 for ord
nance and ordnance stores, bringing
the total appropriaiton for this item up
to $300,000 besides the appropriations of
$25,000 for converting eix-inoh guns into
rapid-fire guns, $45,000 for capping ar
mor piercing shells and $50,000 for the
manufacture of cartridge-making ma 7
chinery (the latter apprporiation to go
to the ordnance factory). An appro
priation of $273,000 to inc. ease the speed
of the Chicago and to replace her old
guns with rapid-fire batteries is also
recommended and an appropriation of
$250,000 for reserve torpedoes and ap.
The increase in the number of enlist
ed men recommended by the subcom
mittee has not yet been considered by
the full committee. A significant in
crease voted by the full committee re
lated to the appropriation for the naval
militia. Heretofore $3*ooo has been
carried by the appropriation bill for the
militia. A delegation representing the
milit'a was here recently and asked a
slight additional appropriation and th >
committee voted an increase of $10,000,
making the total appropriation $60,00o!

bers indicated a willingness to allow
the increase made by the senate to
stand, and at which the senate confer
ees announced their intention to stand
firmly for the increase, because of tha
strong representations of Gen. Flagler,
chief of ordnance, of its necessity.
There appears to be some possibility
that some of the house conferees may
not be willing to accede to the increase,
bust the senators express the opinion
that, if the bill should go back to the
house, that body would concede the in
crease, and so strongly are they of the
opinion that the senate provision will
go into the law that they have advised
the war department to proceed upon
that understanding. The amount car
ried for this purpose by the senate bill
is $950,618, while the house bill carries
only $391,000.
Some Requirements That Will Be Found
The universal article of diet in that
country, depended upon and indispen
sable, is bread or biscuit. And to make
the bread and biscuit, either in the
camp or upon the trail, yeast cannot
be used— it must be baking powder;
and the powder manufactured by the
processes of the Royal Baking Powder
Company, miners and prospectors have
learned, is the only one which will
stand ln that peculiar climate of cold
and dampness and raise the bread and
biscuit satisfactorily.
These facts are very important for
every one proposing to go to Alaska
and the Yukon country to know, for
should he be persuaded by some out
fitter to take one of the cheap brands
of baking powder, lt will cost just as
much to transport it, and then when
he opens it for use, after all his labor
in packing it over the long and diffi
cult route, he will find a solid caked
mass or a lot of spoiled powder, with
no strength and useless. Such a mis
take might lead to the most serious
results. Alaska is no place in which
to experiment in food, or try to econ
omize with your stomach. For use in
such a climate and under the trying
and fatiguing conditions of life and
labor in that country, everything must
be the best and most useful, and above
all it is imperatve that all food sup
plies shall have perfect keeping quali
ties. It is absurd to convey over such
difficult and expensive routes an arti
cle that will deteriorate in transit, or
that will be found when required for
use to have lost a great part of its
There is no better guide to follow in
these matters than the advice of those
who have gone through similar experi
ence. Mr. McQuesten, who is called
"the father of Alaska," after an experi
ence of years upon the trail, in the
camp and in the use of every kind of
supply, says: "We find in Alaska that
the importance of a proper kind of
baking powder cannot be overestimat
ed. A miner with a can of bad baking
powder is almost helpless in Alaska.
We have tried all sorts, and have been
obliged to settle down to. use nothing
but the Royal. It is stronger and car
ries further, but above all things it is
the only powder that will endure the
severe climatic changes 6f the Arctic
It is for the same reasons that the
United States government in its relief
expeditions, and Peary, the famous
Arctic traveler, have carried the Royal
Baking Powder exclusively.

It's the hacking Cough that often
ends in the most Serious trouble.

Talkative Spanish Naval Attache
Follows in the Wake of Senor
De Lome.
NEW YORK, March 2.— Lieutenant
Commander L. S. Sobral, former naval
attache of the Spanish legation in
Washington, sailed today on the
steamer La Bretagne, of the French
line, for Havre. Many members of the
Spanish colony in New York were at
the pier to bid him farewell.
In anticipation of Lieutenant Com
mander Sobral's departure, the junta
Patrlotica Espanola sent a cablegram
to the minister of the navy in Madrid
as follows:
The junta Patrlotica Espanola of the
United States regrets the departure of
Lieutenant Commander Sobral. His pa
triotic and valuable services are highly ap
preciated by the Spanish colony.
Today a member of the Spanish junta
handed to Lieut. Sobral the reply of
the minister of the navy. It read as
I have to thank you for your telegram
regarding Lieutenant Commander Sobral,
whose return to Spain has been ordered
that he may render her service.
Just before boarding La Bretagne,
Lieutenant Commander Sobral said to
a representative of the Associated
Press that he has been misunderstood.
"I have no remorse," he said. "My con
science is clear. I sail contented."
Tlie Day olf His Coronation Observed
Willi tlie Usual Ceremonies
at the Vatican.
ROME, March 2.— The twentieth an
niversary of the coronation of the
pope, Leo XIII., was celebrated today.
His holiness, who was in excellent
health, received the congratulations of
the high prelates in the throne room,
replying in a strong voice. He re
called the demonstrations upon jthe
occasion of his sacerdotal and pontifical
anniversaries and protested against
the outrages aimed at this enthusiasm,
which had been allowed to be commit
ted, adding that it was painful that
the aspirations of the faithful towards
Rome, the sacerdotal metropolis and
depositor.-' of divine oracles, should be
willfully misrepresented. But, contin
ued his holiness, in order to console
the papacy for th€se outrages, God
had increased the love of the multitude
for the papacy in Rome, and through
out the entire world.

at St. Johns Continues.
ST. JOHNS. N. F., March 2.— The dead
lock over railway legislation still continues,
md a ministerial crisis is on ; Jhe cabinet
says the refusal of Sir Herbert Murray, the

is calculated to Influence the legislative coun«
cil unfairly.
Should the government resign, the opposi
tion could not proceed, because it numbers
only eight in a house of thirty-six.

Ins v i-j; out Version of the Five-Day
Battle nt Holkulii, in Santiago
de Cuba.
NEW YORK, March 2.— Reports of
the recent battle at Holguin, province
of Santiago de Cuba, have been rer'
Cfeived in New York. Instead of t-Tie
battle being a Spanish victory, as rep
resented from Havana, it was, a disas
trous defeat, followed by g, retreat on
the part of the Spanish forces. This'
information comes through Cuban;
sources, and is thf. cause for a great
amount of rejoicing in Cuban circles,
because the guns and ammunition]
shipped from Long Island less than a
month ago were used in the fight.
The Cuban loss In the five days' fight,
Ing was less than fifty killed. Op the 1
fifth day, the Spanish columns retreat^
ed, carrying thejr wounded to Holguin
and leaving 200 dead on the field.
The real Spanish loss will never b_{
known, as the dead and wounded were
taken from the field at right. It is'
estimated that nearly 1,000 were killed
and wounded. From word received
from Holguin it was learned that there
were several companies almost annlhU
lated by the Cuban fire.
Other letters from the Cuban army
report it in good condition, and one
from ex-President Cisneros stated that
the whole eastern portion of the island
is safe in control of the Cuban cIYII
government. The ex-president says he
is to be appointed postmaster general,
and tells of plans for postal service 34
though there was no war on the island.
A cheap substitute for a standard adver
tised article may prove to be anything but a
bargain. Be careful to get what you ask for.
