PAUL SCHOOL TEACHERS AND THEIR SALARIES Promised Suit Fall, to Materialize, and President Farnsworth, of the Teachers' Association, Takes An other Course Will Gather Sta tistics ItcnardlnK the Teachers and I »c Them With the Board. Tt ls quite probable that a concen trated effort will be made by the teach ers of St. Paul against any reduction ln salary which may be imposed during the next school year, on account of lack of money in the maintenance fund. • Principal S. A. Farnsworth, presi dent of the St. Paul Teachers' associa tion, yesterday sent out letters to all - the principals of the various schools of the city asking for Information re garding the competency and general (condition of teachers employed ln the public schools of this city. The questions asked are as follows: First — Number of teachers in your school. Second— Number of teachers owning homes in St. Paul. Third— Number of teachers who pay or as sist in paying taxes ln St. Paul. Fourth— Number of teachers who havo other persons wholly or partially depend ent upon them for support. Include the principal in all answers. In closing, Mr. Farnsworth gives as a reason for desiring information the following: '•This ls to aid In an effort to place clearly anfl fully before the board of education the reasons why salaries of St. Paul teacher, should not be reduced. An Immediate re sponse is requested." Inquiry among a number of teachers yesterday afternoon elicited little infor mation relative to the plans of the teachers' association or the Import of Supt. Farnsworth's letter, ln fact it could not be learned that a meeting of the teachers' association had been held for several weeks. It would appear from this fact that Mr. Farnsworth has taken it upon himself to gather this Information without sanction of the body of which he is president. In the absence of au thority which could only be voted at ' a meeting of the association, Mr. Farnsworth would have no more right to collect such information on behalf v>f the teachers' association than any other member of the body would. It would seem, however, that Mr. Farnsworth and the other members of the committee who were to have brought the suit against the city are determined to keep after the board of education until they secure the recog nition which they claim they are en titled to. Mr. Farnsworth stated to The Globe last week that suit would be brought against the city early this week, possibly Monday, as the com plaint was then being drawn. So far, no action has been brought in any of the courts, and it seemed to be the prevailing impression yesterday that the matter was about to be drop ped to enable the committee to ar range an armistice with the board un til the statistics which Mr. Farns worth asked for in his letter yesterday were forthcoming. Although Mr. Farnsworth could not he found yesterday afternoon, it seem ed to be the impression among teach ers that the committee had changed Its tactics for the more popular course of arbitration with the school board. Prof. J. G. Donnelly was the only member of the committee who could be seen. Mr. Donnelly has taken no active part in the deliberations of the com mittee, as he is not in sympathy with the movement of the teachers. When asked relative to the matter, he said: "As far as I am concerned, the city does not owe me one cent, and I don't know the first thing about the suit." One of the best known teachers ln the city said: "I do not think the movement of the teachers is well advised. If the board was taking some means to get more money, it would be different, but it is doing its best with the funds at its dii/posal, and I do not , think it is in the interest of the teachers to com plain of the action of the school board. "More money ls certainly needed to run the schools, but the teachers must rememiber that the place to get that is in the council, and not in the board. The board is doing Its best to make ends meet." Another teacher said: "In view of the experience of the Minneapolis board, I should not think any steps would be taken which would tend to antagonize the board. The fault lies with the people who make up the tax budget." • r J , \~A Uma-JO^&t 3M ' /JataA Sff DID WEYLER WRITE IT? LEE BELIEVES IN THE LETTER REFERRING TO MINES Conaul General HliuHelf Saw a Tel egram Aitktiifr That the Document Bo Destroyed Thin Fact for the Klr«t Time Muilc Public ln the TeHtlmony Before the Senate Com. mlttee— — Gen. Lee'n Evldenve. WASHINGTON, April 14.— The testi mony taken before the senate commit tee on foreign relations ln connection with the investigation into the rela tions between the United States and Cuba was made public today. It con stitutes a book of about 650 pages, and includes not only the testimony taken since the disaster to the Maine, but also much that was taken before, and running back for a year or more. The statement which creates the greatest current interest is that made by Consul General Lee on the 12th Inst. In this statement, Gen. Lee said that he was informed on very good authority that the Spanish had placed two rows of torpedoes just at the mouth of Havana harbor, by Morro castle, within the past two months, or subsequent to the Maine disaster, and that the switchboard ls ln a room in the castle. He eald.however.that he had no infor mation of the placing of any torpedoes before the Maine was destroyed, and none in regard to the purchase abroad by the Spanish authorities. "Have you any reason to suppose that the harbor was mined at all, be fore the blowing up of the Maine?" asked Senator Frye. "No, sir; I had no reason to suspect anything of that sort up to that time." He then went on to say that Gen. Weyler's leter to Santos Guzman had led him to believe that mines might have been placed there previous to the Maine incident, and he said that this supposition was strengthened by a telegram from Gen. Weyler, of which he had cognizance. Upon the whole, he thought the Weyler letter (the I^aine letter) was a copy of the genu ine letter. The telegram to which he referred was addressed to Eva Canel, a noted Spanish woman and an ad mirer of Weyler, and to Senor Guz man, and it read as follows: "Weyler's Telegram. "Grave circumstances cause me to ask you to destroy the last letter of Feb. 12." Gen. Lee said that this telegram had never before been published, and he found in it strong confirmatory evi dence of the genuineness of the Wey ler letter. With reference to the responsibility for the destruction of the Maine, Gen. Lee said: "I am satisfied the explosion was from the outside. I cabled the state department a few days after the board assembled that it was almost certain that the explosion was from the exter ior. I always had an idea about the Maine that, of course, it was not blown up by any private individual or by any private citizen, but it was blown up by some of the officers who had charge of the mines and electrical wires and torpedoes in the arsenal there, who thoroughly understood their business, for it was done remarkably well. "I don't think Gen. Blanco, the pres ent captain general of the island of Cuba, had anything to do with it. I don't think he had any knowledge of Gen. Lee said that he had seen a copy of a telegram from Admiral Manter ola, dated in Havana, prior to the ex plosion of the Maine, to the Spanish commission in London, asking the commission to "hurry up the electrical cables." "Whether that referred to wire for submarine mines or torpedoes, I do not know," he continued. "I tried to ascer tain if any of the wire or electrical cables had arrived there, but they came on Spanish ships, and I could not find out." Senator Morgan asked If, when after the explosion, he got to the water's edge, he saw any lights burning. "I did not notice that," said Gen. Lee, "but I have made Inquiries since, and have ascertained that no electric lights went out." "Have you heard since the explo sion of the Maine any expression by Spanish officers in relation to it. Indi cating their pleasure at the fact?" said Senator Frye. Gen. Lee responded: "I heard two or three days afterwards from various persons who came in that there was a good deal of rejoicing among some of the officers. All reports I got said they were drinking champagne, quite a thing to do, in honor of the event and in different portions of the city officers were making merry. I attrib ute it to the fact that, what they con sidered almost an enemy's battleship had been blown up, and it was that much in their favor." He said that he had not heard any threats of or allusions to the destruc tion of the Maine previous to the ex plosion. Senator Lodge asked if he had heard of any attempt on the Montgomery. "I heard," responded Gen. Lee, "that there was something of that sort on-=> evening, but I bolleve, upon investiga tion, it was found that it did not amount to anything." No Real Armistice. Senator Lodge asked: "What does the cessation of hostilities spoken of ln the last few days amount to?" to which Gen. Lee responded: "Nothing, practically nothing— the armistice amounts to nothing." In response to an Inquiry from Sen ator Frye, as to his reason for saying that the insurgents would pay not at tention to the armistice, Gen Lee said: "Because every attempt so far to make terms, or to make peace, or to buy the insurgents or their leaders has met with signal failure, and whatever may be said about old Gen. Gomez he ls, in my humble opinion, fighting that war in the only way It can be done scattering his troops out— because to concentrate would be to starve, hav ing no commissariat train and no way to get supplies. They come in some times for the purpose of making some little raid, where he thinks it will do something, but he has given orders, so I have always been informed, not to fight, not to become engaged, not to lose their cartridges; and sometimes when he gets into a fight, each man is ordered not to fire more than two cart ridges." Senator Frye asked: "What, In your judgment, is the possibility of Spain conquering the insurgents, and restor ing peace to the island." "I do not think there ls the slightest possibility of their doing it at all in any way. The same condition of things existed when Mr. Cleveland asked me to go down there last June a year ago. I gave him a report three weeks after I got there in which I told him there was no chance, In my opinion, of the Spaniards ever suppressing that insur rection, nor was there any chance of the insurrectionists expelling the Span ish from the island." In response to an inquiry from Sen ator Lodge, for his opinion of the in surgent government, Gen. Lee said: "I have never thought that the in surgents had anything except the skel eton form of a government — a movable capital. I asked them one day why they did not have some permanent capital, and I think they gave a very gcod reason. They said it would re quire a large force to protect It and defend it, and they could not afford to mass up their men there; that the cap ital and the government officials had Ito move where they could be safest." Army of Occnpatlon. Gen. Lee said he did not know any THE ST. PAUL GLOBE FRIDAY— APRIL 15, 189&. of the officials connected with their civil government. The armed force would number probably 31,000 or 32,000. The number has been up probably, as high as 36,000 or 37,000 men well armed. The ammunition varies. The Spanish force was probably 55,000 or 56,000. Gen. Lee said that an American army of occupation could go into the island with safety now. The climate nor anything else need prevent them entering Cuba. When he left Havana, the Spanish troops had not been paid for about nine months, nor the Span ish officers for about four months. Senator Daniel asked: "Do you think Gen. Blanco was lacking ln courtesy to you on leaving the isl and?" "I went with the British consul gen eral and saw Dr. Oongosto, the secre tary to the general. I told Dr. Con gosto that I had received instructions to leave the Island and go to the Unit ed States, and I called to pay my final respects, and would like to see Gen. Blanco. He asked me to sit down, and said he would go and let him know. He went off and stayed about fifteen minutes, and came back and said the general said please excuse him; he was not. feeling well, and was lying down. I told Dr. Congosto then to say good bye to him, and turned around and left." Senator Daniel: "Were there any demonstrations of 111-will towards you as you left?" Consul General Lee: "When we were coming out on the street Saturday evening, there was some hallooing, cat calling and whistling, and some Span ish expressions, meaning "cowards running away," and so on. I think that was confined to the lower order of men, however." SPAIN'S LATEST MISSIVE PrLli TEXT OP THE REPLY RE CEIVED SUNDAY NIGHT The Spanish Minister for the Uueeu Expresses Regret for the Maine Disaster and Offers to Snbmtt the Issue of Fact to Arbitration All the Reforms Granted In Cuba Are Earnestly Pleaded. WASHINGTON, April 14.— The full text of the Spanish minister's note, de livered to the secretary of state last Sunday nigiht, which stands as the last step taken in the diplomatic ne gotiations, became available today, and ls as follows: The minister plenipotentiary of Spain has the honor to inform the honorable secretary of state of the United States of America that the queen regent, yielding to the reiterated requests of His Holiness, and Inspired by the sentiments of peace and concord which ani mate her, has given proper Instructions to the general-ln-chlef of the army of Cuba, ln or der that he should concede an Immediate sus pension of hostilities for such time as he shall deem prudent for preparing and facili tating peace in that island. Gen. Blanco has published today the cor responding proclamation, and reserved to him self to fix in another the term and other de tails of its execution, with the sole object of making sure that a measure of such trans cendent Importance may lead in the short est possible time to the desired pacification of the great Antilla. In the fixing of this term the general-ln-chlef, inspired by the most ele vated sentiments, far from raising any diffi culties or obstacles, ls disposed to concede all possible facilities. The government of his majesty, by this im portant measure, has crowned its extraordi nary efforts to obtain the pacification of Cuba by means of reason and right. No Pretext Left. The autonomic constitution on which grants to the inhabitants of the island of Cuba a political regime, at least as liberal as that which rules ln the dominion of Canada, will shortly enter upon Its complete development when, the election having taken place, the Insular parliament shall meet ln Havana on the fourth of May next; and such are the franchises and liberties granted to the Cubans that no pretext is left to them to ask for more ample concessions. Furthermore, as the Island of Cuba ls rep resented In the cortes of the kingdom, a priv ilege which ls not enjoyed by any other for eign autonomic colony, the Cuban senators and deputies can there explain their aspira tions if they should have any. No one who knows the liberal spirit of the majority of the Spanish cortes recently elected, and the patriotic attitue of the prin cipal parties of tie opposition can doubt that the Cubans will obtain Buch modifications as they may desire in. Justice within the limits of reason and of the national sover eignty, according to the solemn offer of the preamble of the royal decree of the 27th of November, 1897; while at the same time the government of her majesty declared that it would not withdraw, nor consent that there should be withdrawn, anything from the colonial liberties, franchises and privileges accorded. The repeal of the decree of reconcentratlon, the aid of all kinds which the government has granted and has permitted to be given to the reconcentrados, have put an end to a lament able state of affairs, which was the inevitable consequence of the bloody conflct provoked by a small minority of the sons of Cuba directed and supported principally by foreljrn influences. No impartial mind, which has full knowl egde of the facts, so distorted as they have been, and are actually ln everything refer ring to the Cuban question, can, with Justice charge Spain with being remiss in seeking the means for pacifying the Island, or grudg ing the concession of privileges, liberties and franchises for the welfare and happiness of its inhabitants. Maine Disaster. The government does not doubt that the government of the United States must recog nize this, as it will recognize the manifect injustice with which a part of publlo opinion ln this country presumes to find responsi bility for Spain ln the horrible catastrophe which occurred ln the port of Havana on the unhappy night of the 15th of February last. Her majesty, the queen regent, her res>pons i ble government, the governor general of Cuba, the insular government and all the principal authorities of Havana manifested from the first moment the profound senti ments of horror which that immense misfor* tune caused them, and the symoathy which, on that most sad occasion, bound them to the American government and people. The proofs of this were the visits of th 9 charge d'affaires of h«r majesty to the Illus trious president of the United States, those of the highest Spanish functionaries of state to Mr. Woodford, the unstinted aid given to the victims, as well as the funeral arrange ments provided by the municipality of Ha vana, and the notes addressed to the depart ment of state by this legation on the 16th and 17th of February, and the 2d day of this month, Nos. 12, 13, 14 and 33, respectively. The officers and crew of the vessels of war of her majesty near the Maine, disregarding the evident danger which threatened them as the officers of that American battleship recognized, immediately lowered their boats and saved a number of the drowning, who only owe their :ives to the prompt and effica cious aid of the Spanish sailors. It is strange that these notorious facts and these solemn manifestations appear to be for gotten by public opinion, which gives credit on the other hand, to the most absurd and" offensive hypotheses. The government of her majesty would be deeply grateful to the Justice and courtesy of the United States if it should re-establish officially the truth of facts which apnear to be ignored or not appreciated, and ignor ance of which contributes so powerfully to , maintain the extraordinary excitement which endangers, without any reason or motive the friendly relations between the two nations. Ready to Arbitrate. With reference to the question of fact which results from the diversity of opinion between the reports of the Spanish and North American commissions, the government of her majesty, which as yet does not know the official text of these opinions, has hastened to declare itself ready to submit the ques tion to the decision of impartial and disin terested experts, accepting in advance the decision of the arbitrators named by both parties— an evident proof of the loyalty and good faith with which Spain proceeds on this, as well as on all occasions. The minister cf Spain trusts that those ' manifestations, inspired by the loyal desire for peace and concord which animate the government of her majesty, will be appre ciated at their Just value by the president and government of the United States.

NEW YORK, April 14.— The United States cruisers San Francisco and New Orleans passed in Sandy Hook at 7:43 p. m. WASHINGTON, April 14.— The most pronounced development I In: the navy department today was the Issuance of an order prohibiting the giving out of movements of vessels. Since the begin ning of the present crisis the depart ment has been gradually closing in the lines of information and today th? of ficial order went out that the cu3tom of posting ship movements should cease. It was explained that in view of the existing conditions this was deemed necessary, and- hereafter no movements whatever will be made public. One more auxiliary cruiser was pur chased today, the steamer Venezuela, of the Red D line. She wll immediately be sent to a ship yard for refitting. Secretary Dong stated after ofllcn hours today that the steamships Pails and New York had not yet passed into the possession of the department. It is understood, however, that as soon as the question of terms can be settled these vessels will be placed on the naval list along with the Bt Louis and St. Paul, of the same line. It is also stated that negotiations are under way for the purchase of the Holland submarine torpedo boat Plunger. The department !s now awaiting the report of the board which was ordered to inspect this novel craft. Gen. Miles said today that, up to this time, no further movements of troops other than those announced some time ago had been ordered, nor had any call for volunteers been is sued.

Furneaux, master of the British steamship Shenandoah, which arrived in port this morning, from Liverpool, reports that he passed the flying squadron some distance beyond the capes, maneuvering and going through the various squadron evolutions. The ships were all close in together. FULL OF FIGHT. Colored Soldier Boys Anxious for a Go With the Dona. CHATTANOOGA, Term., April 14.— The Twenty-fifth infantry arrived here this after noon, and, with the exception of two com panies which left for Key West ln the early part of the evening, It ls quartered In the cars until tomorrow morning, when the men will go Into camp at Chickamauga park. The detachment which left for Key West ls under the command of Lieut. Col. Dag gett It ls expected that they will reach Key West some time tomorrow night. The nearer to Key West the regiment gets the more full of light do the soldiers be come. A restaurant man said to a group of them: "I don't see what they are sending you fel lows to Cuba for; you can't flght," where upon he was promptly knocked down and out. The warm reception given the regiment late yesterday afternoon was repeated at Nash ville this morning, and at every place along the line, especially by the colored people. DULL, TIME IN HOUSE. Session Sharply in Contrast With That of the Previous Day. WASHINGTON, April 14.— The ses sion of the house today was dull and absolutely devoid of Interest. The gal leries and the floor were almost desert ed. During the afternoon numerous bills were passed. The most important measure passed was the Curtis bill for the relief of residents of the Indian territory. It provides for the settle ment of questions Involving 19,000,000 acres belonging to the Cherokees, Chick - asaws, Creeks, Choctaws and Semi moles, and now occupied by 800,000 whites and 60,000 Indian*. It provides for the ejectment of 7,000 intruders upon 127,000 acres of land. The lands are to be leased so as to give each In dian a share, mineral lands are to be leased by the secretary of the Interior, and citizens in towns located on lands are to be permitted to buy titles to the holdings from the Indians. PHOTOGRAPHY- Has Reduced the Difficulties and Cost of Lawsuits in the- Matter ot Diagrams and Drawing". From the Washington Star. ' "Photography has reduced the difficulties ln lawsuits and trials to a minimum," re marked a member of the bar to the reporter. "In times past it was the universal custom ln murder trials to take the Juries to the scenes of the crime, so that they could get a better understanding of the testimony and the facts ln the case. Besides the time in volved, there was considerable expense in this. There were, you know, elaborate dia grams, drawings and sketches constantly used ln Important trials. AH this Is now done away with by the photograph, which ls al ways accurate. In making copies of exhibits ln civil causes, notes, deeds, wills and the like, the blue print has done away entirely with the services of the draughtsmen who were employed to reproduce the same. I re member well the celebrated trial of Gen. Daniel Sickles, then a representative from New York, for the murder of Phil Barton Key, who was United States district attor ney. The pictorial exhibits in this case al most filled one of the walls of the court house. The club house in the front of which the shooting occurred, now the site of the Lafayette Square opera house, was, of course, the principal picture. Then there was a drawing of Lafayette square, showing how Key signaled over to Mrs. Sickles, who re sided on the opposite side of that square, and a big drawing of the house on Fifteenth street, between X and L streets, where the meetings between Col. Key and Mrs. Sickles took place, as well as the signals which were displayed on the house indicating to Key whether or not Mrs. Sickles had arrived there. Besides these there were other pic tures and diagrams, which. were/prepared by William Forsyth, the city surveyor. They cost considerable money, but the' whole thing could not be better represented*' at the ex pense of a couple of dollars and ten minutes' use of a kodak. I have known ! bf hundreds of dollars being expended la the: preparation of facsimiles of exhibits, forgeries, etc., all of which can now be reproduced in a half hour by the blue-print process and at a very trilling expense, comparatively." " EFFORT ABANDONED. - ■! Western Passenger Üb'abl'e to Settle Their Rate Troubles : "Wlth the Canadian Paclflc. J ;j NEW YORK, April 14.— After a third day's fruitless discussion of the Northwestern pas senger rate differences the conference of Western railway men dissolved and some of them departed tonight for their' homes. Mr. McNlcoll, of the Canadian Pacific, who has presided over the conference during the last three daj-s, said that the conflicting Interests were no nearer together than they were when this conference began. Underground London. Underground London contains 3,000 miles of sewers, 84,000 miles of telegraph wires, 4,030 miles of water mains, 3,200 miles of gas pipes, all definitely fixed.

He thought It was not the time for im passioned rhetoric, loud declamation, the clapping of hands, and the stamp ing of feet, but rather It was the po sition of aJbsolute deliberation that should command such a scene and such an occasion. He then argued that the report of cruelty and oppression in the Island of Cuba undoubtedly warranted some measures that would bring peace, but he doubted the wisdom of rushing headlong Into war until every other diplomatic effort had been made to bring albout an honorable cessation of hostilities. Then, with a voice trembling with emotion, his head slowly shaking as the words came forth, he told how a captain of a company of Infantry, or ganized in the same town in which he was born, went forth in the morning of the Revolution to hold the bridge at Concord, and said that he was In the same position as that captain was. Realizing the tremendous responsibili ties of his high office, he thought that whatever was done should be done with an eye single to the situation. He said he was born in a cold latitude and consequently might look upon things In a somewihat different light, and then, with hand raised, and amid a profound stillness ln the senate chamlber, he made this significant re mark: "If this country is to do a great act of international Justice, let us do it calmly and deliberately." He then rapidly reviewed a great many international cases, with cita tions from international law to show that the recognition of the present gov ernment of Cuba would be inimical to the beet interests of the United States, and would not have the support or civilized nations. He agreed, he said, with the president of the United States, who had declared that it was impossible for Spain to maintain a proper and stable govern ment upon the island. Spain Must Pay. The continuance of the Spanish flag over Cuba could not longer be tolerat ed. He held, therefore, that we must directly and as soon as possible, expel Spain from the Island. Peace could not be secured there except through such expulsion. "Spain cannot prevent the disturbances of the peace and prosper ity of the island. We can, and we mutt." He liked, however, a resolution, which had been drawn by Mr. Teller, of Colorado, and maintained that in that resolution the United States was authorized to go as far as It ought. Mr. Hoar declared his belief that the destruction of the ship Maine was a meditated act, for which Spanish offi cials were probalbly responsible. "With that view," said Mr. Hoar, "the Span ish government ls responsible for that loss and it ought to be held responsible by the United States." The resolution to be passed, he said, would lead to war, and war such as the world has not seen for many years, a war of no foreign conquest; for no national gain or personal aggrandize ment, but a war for humanity. Speak ing of the destruction of the Maine, he said that it was a wretched act on the part of Spain, which demanded full re paration. In closing, Mr. Hoar — and it was a closing which was listened to with the closest attention on the part of a crowded senate — said: If there have been any hasty or unwise utterances of impatience, and I think there have been, they have been honest, brave, human utterances. But when I enter upon this war I want to enter upon It with a united American people — president and sen ate and house, and navy, and army, and Democrat and Republican, all Joining hands and all marching one way. I want to en ter upon It with the sanction of interna tional law, with the sympathy of all hu mane and liberty-loving nations, with the approval of our own consciences and with a certainty of the applauding Judgment of history. I confess I do not like to think of the genius of America, angry, snarling, shout ing, screaming, clawing with her nails. I like rather to think of her in her honest and serene beauty. Inspired by sentiments even toward her enemies not of hate, but of love, perhaps a little pale about the eyes and a smile on her lips, but as sure, de termined, unerring, Invincible as was the archangel Michael when he struck down and trampled upon the demon of darkness. (Applause on the floor and In the galleries.) DAVIS ASKS ACTION, But Unable to Secure a Time for a Final Vote. Mr. Davis, chairman of the foreign relations committee, in a statement, said he thought the time had now come for him to ask the senate, owing to the exigencies of the situation, to limit the detxite in progress. He ask ed, therefore, unanimous consent that the debate close at 5 o'clock tomorrow, and at that time a vote be taken upon pending resolutions. Objection was made by Mr. Daniel (Va.). Mr. Allen (Ne<b.) said that he was ready to vote hot, and inquire'! of Mr. Davis if he were olso willing to vote. "I should be delighted," replied Mr. Davis, and he then asked unanimous consent that the vote be taken at once. "I ohject," shouted Mr. White Cal.). Mr. "White explained that he, among others, desired yet to speak upon the momentous issues before the senate, and expressed the opinion that haste would be Inadvisable. Mr. Teller suggested that the debate from now on be limited to speeches of fifteen minutes duration. "I object," again shouted Mr. Daniel. Mr. Davis then made the request that a vote be taken at 9 o'clock tomor row night. Mr. Allison (Io.) said that was agree able to him, and suggested that the last four hours be devoted to speeches not exceeding fifteen minutes. Again Mr. Daniel objected. Returning with another proposition, Mr. Davis asked that a vote be taken tomorrow before the adjournment of the senate. To this, objection was also made. Mr. Chandler (N. H.) inquired of Mr. Davis if it were not his intention to ask for a continuous session of the senate, if no agreement to limit de bate could be reached. "Undoubtedly it is," replied Mr. Da vis. Mr. Caffrey said that no good inter ests could be subserved by hasty ac tion. There could be no relief that would be substantial given to the re concentrados who were the worst suf ferers by the Cuban struggle. NOT FOR VENGEANCE. Dictates of Hnmanlty Demand Ac tion, Says Fairbanks. Mr. Fairbanks (Rep., Ind.), then took tha floor. He said in part: I have not been for either peace at any price or war at any cost. I have been stead fastly for peace If it could be maintained hon orably, and for war if the national dignity and honor required It. The war that has been waged on the islan.l of Cuba has been ln disregard of the uni versally recognized principles of modern war fare. It has been without a counterpart in its brutalities and its destruotlveness; and tho moral sense of the civilized nations has been shocked and aroused as never before. This government has neither coveted the island nor sought by force to control its ad ministration. It has been our settled policy from an early period to permit no foreign in terference with the Spanish authority over it. Our imperative demand has been that Cuba should fall under the sovereignty of no other power than Suain. In view of our relations to the island and of our policy of opposition to foreign inter ference with Spanish control, we are morally bound to put an end to the wrongs, the out rages, and the evils which flow from Spanish misrule. But a few weeks ago the Maine, one of our war vessels, was sent to the harbor of Ha vana upon a mission of peace, for the protec tion of American interests and not for war.

It was the master tragedy of the age. Spain Must Go. The Spanish government has made answer of disavowal. This ls not enough. Our country has been touched as by no other sorrow. Our countrymen, whose judgments are always just, have seriously and patiently sought the awful truth, desiring to acquit, not convlot; they have weighed ell the evidence And no doubt remains ln their minds that the mas sacre of our Bailors was the foul work of Spanish treachery. For this grave act Spain must make due amends. Our own tranquility, our own sense of se curity, our regard for our present and future comfort, and for the lives of hapless and help less subjects demand that we should Inter pose the mighty power of this government to stop the carnival of crime and suffering and restore peace in the Island of Cuba until some suitable government may be formed, which shall be a guarantee to us and to the other nations of the earth that It will at all times in the future be ready and willing and able to discharge its domestic and International obligations. It seems to me, therefore, that the first Imperative duty resting upon us Is to estab lish tranquility ln the Island, relieve the suf fering and distressed and then enable tbe citizens of the Island to deliberate and form a government upon such lines as the highest and best Interests may require. The air is too fulf of rumors* as to the character of the president so-called Cuban republic and as to the bonds that have been floated ln Its name in this country and said to be ln the hands of speculators, to Justify us In any hasty act of recognition. We must intervene and then let the majority rule. Not ln Anger. We strike not In anger, nor for mere re venge, not for the extension of our sover eignty, but In defense of our rights and ln discharge of our duty divinely imposed. I had profoundly hoped, unUl recently, that v.ar could be averted. We have patiently wit nessed the effort of the chief executive to attain an honorable and peaceful solut'on of the grave problem. The conservaUve, patriotic people ot the country have been impressed by his states manship, his tenacity of purpose and the ability and force with which he has pressed the consideration of our just demands and rights upon the attention of the Spanish gov ernment. We have had full faith and con fidence ln his courage and patrlotio purposes and desired that he should exhaust every honorable means to avert war before it should be Invited or declared. I confess I have come to the conclusion to which I have arrived after much delibera tion—reluctantly and with profound regret. I have hoped that this great emergency might be honorably averted or avoided. All reason able, peaceable means have been employed by the chief executive, earnestly, intelligently and patriotically. All efforts at amicable so lution have failed and all that remains ls to Invoke the mighty power of this government ln behalf of enduring peace and Imperiled humanity. We shall now have the satisfaction of know ing that come what may come in the lottery of war we have left undone nothing which could be done consistently with honor to secure a pacific settlement. The Spanish flag must be withdrawn and cease forever to contaminate the air of this hemisphere. To the high and holy cause of humanity we dedicate the lives and fortunes of the republic. TEST VOTE TAKEN. The First Motion to Adjourn for the Day Defeated. Upon the conclusion of Senator Fairbanks' speech, Senator Cullom (111.) was recognized, but had hardly spoken a dozen words before interruption came from several members look ing to an adjournment. Senator Wellington moved that the sen ate adjourn until tomorrow at 11 o'clock, whereupon Mr. Allen (Neb.) Indicated that he wanted to register his protest to the position of certain senators on the floor, who, taking advantage of the situation, desired to repair their fences in order to allow the res olution to go over for another day. The house resolution relative to the Cu ban situation was then reported to the sen ate, and on motion of Mr. Davis was laid on the table. Tlie vote was about to be taken on the motion to adjourn when Mr. Allison called upon Senator Davis to arrange for an ami cable adjournment If It could be brought about, but the chairman, seeing that an ad journment was out of the question, asked Mr. Wellington to agree to an amendment to adjourn to a specified time, which the Maryland senator accepted. A roll call was demanded by Mr. Chandler. The motion was voted down, 32 to 30, as follows: Yeas— Allison, Aldrlch, Bacon, Berry, Chilton, Clark, Clay, Cullom, Daniel, Da vis, Elkins, Fairbanks, Faulkner, Gear.Gor man, Gray, Hanna, Hawley, Hoar, Mcßride, Pasco, Perkins, Piatt (Conn.), Spooner.

Thurston, Turley, Turner— B2. Mr. Cullom then proceeded with his speech for a few minutes, when another effort wai made to adjourn with a view to taking a final vote upon the resolution tomorrow. Mr. Allison stated that it was plainly apparent that no quorum would likely be present during the evening session. Mr. Chandler Interrupted, saying: ".Will you ■a| ■ # ■ _ r^?Tiw^> ' ' our taking cap or }-our t? Ww li 1 4f* al tfllTfc /VyfV^A working cap?

I am not an obstructionist; the senator from New Hampshire should not put such a question to me. Dnvi. Give. Xoltlce. Mr. Cockrell (Mo.) remarked that as the night session seemed to be very uncertain, he thought It best to adjourn until tomor row. He stated, however, very emphatically that If he saw any possibility of the resolul tion being put on its final passage tonight he would stay until the end came. Mr. Davis then gave notice that he would ask for a continuous session, as he moved to adjourn until 10 o'clock. Mr. Carter (Montana) attempted to pour oil on the troubled waters, but as he pro ceeded he became more Interested ln the question of raching a final vote as early as possible. He said: "Action has been taken by all the departments of the government— by the executive and the lower house— and It would seem as If the senate of the United States was the obstruction to the passage of this resolution. I understand that some twcmy-four senators have given notice they would epeak upon the resolution reported by the committee on foreign relations. If these speeches are made the talk will continue In definitely, and as one speech begets another, we may be here until next Saturday night be fore a conclusion Is reached. I would like to suggest that we vote at 2 o'clock Satur day upon this resolution." There were cries of "No," "No" through out the chamber. Mr. Teller — The senator from Montana is perfectly correct. If the list is as long as he stated the talk will last until Sunday morning. Then Mr. Carter, in a voice pitched with excitement and echoing through the cham ber, said: "The country requires that we act, and not talk on this matter. (Applause ln the senate and galleries.) "As a matter of fact, this small demon stration ln the galleries, contrary to the rules of the senate, ls but an expression ln a small way of the feeling of the 70.000,000 of people throughout this continent tonight." Mr. Pettus (Ala.) at this point remarked: "This disorder commenced in the senate and not ln the galleries." Mr. Mason (111.) raised a great laugh by saying: "I started the applause." Senator Davis, chairman of the foreign re lations committee, then renewed his motion to adjourn until 10 o'clock tomorrow, where upon the yeas and nays being called, by a vote of 32 to 23. the senate, at 6:15 p. in., ad journed until 10 o'clock tomorrow. READY FOR THE WORST. Spain Will Fisht Before She Will Give Ip Cuba. LONDON, April 14.— According to a Bpeclal dispatch from Madrid today, a Spanish cabinet minister has declared in an interview, that, "should Presi dent MoKinley notify Spain to evacu ate Cuba, this government will imme diately and emphatically refuse, and will add, it is fully prepared to take the consequences." "The government," continuing, the cabinet minister said, "does not regret granting the armistice, as it has there by proved its position from an interna tional point of view, and has made it more difficult for the United States to intervene without putting itself com pletely In the wrong."

A large crowd assembled, a red flag was displayed and waved, and the "Marseillaise" was sung.
