CUBANS WANT MONEY ASSEMBLY IS XOT SEEKING A CON TROVERSY WITH THE UNITED STATES AGENTS NOW IN WASHINGTON They Represent That $:;,000,000 In 1 n»ii Hi i- It- m <<> Accomplish the De sired End, Disbuiiflnient of Cabnu Army mid Return of Members to Civil Pursuits Will Require Not Lcsh Than 5K1, 000.000. WASHINGTON, March 2S.— Senores Jose R. Villalon and A. Hevia, who were appointed by the Cuban assembly to pre sent to the Washington authorities the resolutions of that body, have arrived in this city. Their mission, in addition to the presentation of the resolutions, is to explain in detail the situation with refer ence to the insurgent army. While the assembly did not reject the $3,000,000 which Gen. Gomez arranged with Mr. Robert P. Porter to receive and pay off the Cuban troops, they believed it to be entirely inadequate to meet the situation. They desire at least $10,000,000, and as much more as can be obtained. They ar gue that, if the Cuban army Is disbanded after the distribution of but $3,000,000, which would give to each enlisted man about $68, the money so obtained would be barely sufficient to procure clothes and return to their homes, leav ing them no margin upon which to enter upon the peaceful pursuits of life. With out the means of subsistence . Senor Vil lalon says, disorders would almost Inevi tably follow, and perhaps brigandage. The object both of the United States and of the assembly, says Mr. Villalon, is to secure tranquillity in Cuba, preparatory to the setting up by the Cuban people of an independent government, and he says that it is therefore as much to the inter ests of the United States authorities as to those who immediately represent the Cu ban patriots to see that the disbanded soldiers are given an opportunity to re sume civil pursuits. The assembly repre sents not the Cuban people, Mr. Vilallon declares, but only those who have been in arms struggling for their Independence. Senor Villalon and his colleague will probably seek an audience with the presi dent himself, and. If this denied them, will see the secretary of war. If the president receives these gentlemen it will be as visiting citizens, not in their repre sentative capacity. No such recognition will be accorded them. If they desire to present a petition or request to this gov ernment it will have to go through "the ordinary channels, and In this instance it will be through the military arm of the government. Such a petition when pre sented will be referred to Gen. Brooke, as military governor of Cuba, and the one person authorized to deal with Cuban af fairs. It is also probable that these Cu bans will be told that any answer to the request or petition will come from Gen. Brooke. The United States government cannot. It is pointed out, recognize any person as representing the people of Cuba, or Dlaiming to represent them, through the organization known as the Cuban assem- My. To this it is Intimated that they rould not particularly object. What they i«aire Is to lay the case before the gov- erning authority, and having done that their duty is ended. PRESIDENT IN WASHINGTON. Returns to the White House Re freshed by His Ontiiiff. WASHINGTON, March 28.— President McKinley this afternoon returned to Washington after an outing of two weeks and a day. The special train bearing the president and the members of the party, who have been with him throughout the trip, pulled into the Pennsylvania depot here at exactly 5 o'clock this afternoon. 1 The party comprised President and Mrs. McKlnlr-y, Vice President and Mrs. Ho bart.

The trip was without special incident. There was no speechmaking, though at several points along the route today and yesterday large crowds had gathered arxious to get a glimpse of the chief ex ecutive. The special, which ran as a sec tion of the Florida special over the Atlan tic Coast lino, proceeded on a slow sched ule during the trip, in accordance with the wish of the president to arrive here in the late afternoon. Owing to a lack of definite knowledge of the exact hour of the return there were only a few people gathered at the Pennsylvania depot to witness the ar rival. The train was shifted to a side track outside the depot, where Acting Secretary of War Meiklejohn, Adjt. Gen. Corbin, Secretary Porter- and Mr. Smith were waiting with carriages. The president and Mrs. McKinley were among the first to alight. Both showed they had been much refreshed by the outing. The party entered the carriages and drove to their homes, Mr. and Mrs. McKinley being driven to the White house. ADMIRALS UUL RIGHT. Report of Naval Board of Promotion Favorable to All.
