WASHINGTON, D. C, May 24—The
senate committee on Cuban relations has
at last agreed on a bill for «Cuban reci
procity on the basis of 20 per cent re
duction. ■
Such is a report from reliable sources ;
tonight. Senator Spoonef, who was one
of the s-'taunch opponents, succumbed, and
with him went McMillan, of Michigan,
and Deboe, of Kentucky. This makes
the Republican members of the commit
tee a unit In favor of the bill, which
will be reported to the senate without
the feature which repeals the differential
an refined sugar and without contrlct
labor amendments added in the house.
It is now claimed that the bill can be
passed in the senate as a party measure,
but beet sugar senators are still, full of
fight, and threaten to add as an amend
ment the French reciprocity treaty, as
well as other amendments attacking va
rious schedules. Even if he bill goes
through the senate it will have to come
back to the house for concurrence in
amendments, and insurgents under Taw
ncy promise it a fatal shaking up.
Head of (he Latin Department oi the
I'uiveritity Goes to Join
I'rof. Kiins.
24—President David Starr Jordan, of
Stanford university, has summarily dis
missed Prof E. W. Pease, who has been
at the head of the Latin department of
the university for several years, because
the latter would not resign upon request
without a preferment of charges against
him. The dismissal is to take effect
July 31 next.
President Jordan stated in his letter
that he reluctantly explained his act
by charging the professor in Latin with
seliishmss, and asserting that the hitter's
personality made it impossible for any
executive officer of the university to get
along with him.
Prof. Pease wrote a bitter letter to
President Jordan today, saying that he
is removed because he openly sympathiz
ed with the deposed Prof. Ross, who was
removed last year.

Presents to Be Bestowed on
Ambassadors at Corona
tion Are Costly
Ruler of Barotseland Will Be Only
Ruler at Ceremonies—Many Social
Events Are Planned, Includ
ing: Ball at Crystal Palace.
■LONT.ON, May 24.—LewaWka, king of
Barotesland (Northwestern Rhodesia),
the only king who will be present at the
coronation of King Edward, arrived from
South Africa today.
The presents which King Edward will
give to the foreign envoys are ready.
Whitelaw Reid, the American speelai am
bassador, and his associates will receive
pins and brooches of gold, mostly in the
form of the initial "E," set with rubies
and pearls, with a gold enameled* crown
above. In a few cases, perhaps, the
costlier presents will be made to the
heads of special embassies.
Practically all the Invitations to the
coronation service have been sent out.
The dowager petresses will sit with the
reigning peeresses and wear similar robes
and coronets. In this way, it is pointed
out, many celebrated women, who have
been separated by bitter family feuds,
will be brought together for the first
time in many years.
Seats Allotted Peers.
The eldest sons and daughters and peers
will occupy separate seats, which rather
complicates matters from a family point
of view. Among the gnests not having
admittance by right of rank, but who
were specially invited by the king to at
tend the service, is Mrs. Arthur Paget,
daughter of the late Mrs. Paran Ste
vens, of New York, and wife of Maj.
Gen. Paget, of the Scots Guards.
Mrs. Paget will preside over a huge
coronation ball July 2 in aid of the
king's hospital fund.
It will be held at the Crystal palace,
where 12.000 square feet will" be laid out
in parquet flooring, the largest area, It
:"s said, ever laid down for dancing. All
the members of the royal family are ex
pected to be present.
Royalty at the Opera.
The royal celebration night at the
grand opera, Covent Gftf-den. June 30, ia
expected to break all box office records
The stall 3 will cost 20 guineas, which
means 10,000 guineas for royal visitors
cabinet ministers and other high person
ages. Hundreds of seats have already
been allotted. Such boxes as are not tak
en by the court will cost from 60 to 100
guineas. Many of these are already sold
It ib estimated that Covent Garden wili
hold that night 18,000. The whole house
will be decorated with real and artificial
flowers, the latter being used to prevent
the overpowering oclor which would other
wise be caused by such an abundance of
nature's product. Jean de Reszke and
Mmes, Melba. Calve, Nordica and other
stars will take part in the programme,
which will include experts from "Lohen
grin," "Siegfried," "Tannhaeuser" and
"Lucia di Lammermoor."
Ascot Rmccs Popular.
Among the ante-coronation festivities
the Ascot race meeting bids fair t o be
the most popular, though this year the
king will have a stand to himself. The
rush of applications for admittance to
the royal enclosure, where King Edward
formerly watched the races, is unpreced
ented. Lord Chamberlain, the Earl of
Clarendon, with only 1,500 tickets at his
disposal, has been obliged to disappoint
hundreds, among whom are many dis
tinguished persons who have previously
been accustomed to mix in this exclusive
gathering. The,price of tickets has also
been raised to 4 guineas.
London a Fairy City.
"Almost a Fairy City" Is the way one
city wiiter forecasts London's appearance
during coronation week. Arches and fes
tcons, planned by municipal and artistic
oonrmittees. will be erected in every por
tion of the metropolis. The preparations
for these, however, are anything but
fairylike. Each week sees London more
hideous, with countless half finished
stands, many of them shutting out the
light from houses, and all reeking with
the smell peculiar to rain-soaked pine
In the maze of stands going up around
the houses of parliament and West Mins
ter Abbey 25 guineas are asked for seats
Over 500 coronation bonfires have al
ready been arranged for in the provinces
A curious precedent in celebrating Kino-
Edward's crowning has been set by the
corporation of the city of London, which
has decided to make a personal eift of
£5,000 to the King to use as he sfes fit
in token of the continuance of the corpo
ration s ancient loyalty to the sovereign
This is exclusive of the appropriations for
decorations and entertainment or for the
Kins s boscnal fund. v

More Light on the Destruction of

. SAN FRANCISCO, May 24.—8y advices
brought by the steamer City of Para it
is learned that in by seconds 1.000 people
were killed, J over 4,000 maimed and crip
pled, and the city of Quezaltanango, of
40,000 people, destroyed by the earth
quake of April 18 ir Guatemala.
A man who was in Guatemala at the

plantation is only a few miles out from
Quezaltenango,-was a passenger on the
City of Para. He said of the earthquake:
"It cme. about 8:15 in the evening. I
was out on open ground, and had great
difficulty in keeping my feet. j The great
est damage was at { Quezaltenango, and
the ' city was practiclly destroyed. All

more severe .than t*«e one preceding, but
the damage was all done within a minute

the loss of life was apparently slight,
probably less than 100, though many were

Talk in Rome of Archbishop
Ireland Being Transfer
red to New York
St. Paul Prelate Does Not Seem to Be
in the Good Graces of Cardinal
Rampolla, Papal Secre
tary of State.
Special Cable to The Globe.
ROME, May 24.—For the moment the
question of who is to succeed the late
Archbishop Corrigan in the archdiocese
of New York ie prominent in Vatican
circles. —
The pontifical organs hint that there
is a strong probability of the name of
Mgr. Ireland standing high in the list
of nominations to be submitted to the
college of the propaganda, whose duty
it Is to make tlw final recommendation to
the pope. Should-this prove to be the
case, there might be a revival of the
"Americanism." controversy. Mgr. Ire
land's character, manner, executive tal
ents and fascinating eloquence seem to
mark him out for a cardinalate, but H
is felt that his appointment as the suc
cessor of Mgr. Corrigan might stir up
the ashes of smoldering fires.
It is no secret that Cardinal Rampolla
is not warmly attached to Archbishop
Ireland. He has repeatedly proved the
American ecclesiastic a man with a mind
of his own and of corresponding cour
ige. Men of Ireland's type, unless they
are allies of the papal secretary, are apt
to be regarded by him as foes.
Rampolla would be better pleased by
the appointment of Mgr. Farley or Mgr
McDonnell, though this is not an im
plication that either of them would be
unduly subservient to the pope's chief
political adviser.

Special to the Globe.
NE"WBURG» Minn.. May 24.—Mrs. Jen

using the mails for fraudulent purposes.
Mrs. Paul has been funning an ad
vertisement in "Cupid's Columns," print
ed at Faribault, which reads as follows:
"Tall, handsome, well educated athletic
girl of twenty-one, speaking several
languages, wishes to correspond with a
matrimonially inclined gentleman."
But Mrs. Paul is neither tall nor hand
some. She is not twenty-one, but forty
five. She speaks German and broken
English. Besides this she already has a
husband in the person cf Albert Paul, a
She has been running the advertisement
for the past year and answers have come
from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Canana and
many other places. John A. Blausor, of
Sage, Wyo., answered the advertisement
and in return received a reply June 2,
enclosed with which was a photograph
of a good-looking young girl. It was
intimated in the letter that it would
cost in the neighborhood of $50 to get to
Wyoming and Mr. Blauser the
money. Miss Jennie Paul, however was
not forthcoming.
Inspector Crowell, who has been work
ing on the case says that Mrs. Paul has
received many replies and considerable

Despite Old MiNnnderstandina;, Gen.
Corbin and Others May Be
BERLIN T, May 24.— An odd misunder
standing has arisen from a conversation
which Adjt. Gen. yon Plessen had with
Adjt. Gen. Corbin when Admiral Prince
Henry of Prussia visited Washington.
Gen. yon Plessen said, courteously:
"We should be delighted to have you
see our maneuvers."
Gen. Corbin replied:
"I should certainly be much pleased
to go."
Gen. Corbin's impression, as It now ap
appears, was that this was an invitation
for the September maneuvers. Gen yon
Plessen seems to have thought nothing
more of It until an announcement was
received from the United States that
Gens. Corbin, Wood and Young would be
designated to attend the maneuvers. This
newspaper paragraph was followed by a
cabled stat?ment that the war depart
ment. May 10, hud formally given these
officers leave to attend.
Invitation to the maneuvers is Emperor
William's prerogative, and the foreign m.l
ltary officers are his personal guests.
The custom always has been for his maj
esty to pay the traveling expenses of the
invited officers in Geimany, and he
lodges, mounts and entertains them.
Naturally, Gen. yon Plessen cannot in
vite anyone to be the emperor's gu<>st,
though, quite properly, he can suggest

Litigation la Over Hereditary Righta
and Privilege* at Havana,
NEW YORK, May 24.—Suit was entered
in the United States district court to lay
by the Countess of Buena Vista against
Gen. Brooke, of the United States army,
for $250,000. The countess alleged that
Gen. Brooke abrogated rights held by her
through inheritance to the privileges of
conducting the slaughter house at Ha
vana and to the distribution of meats
and the collection of the fixed charges
for said meats. The eouateaa claimed
these privileges by virtue of a royal de
cree from the king of Spain, dated 1701
The countess declared that the business
under the privilege was successful and
profitable until 1599. In that year she
alleged Gen. Brooke, then military gov
ernor of Cuba, issued! an order to the ef
fect that the hereditary privileges con
nected with the slaughter of cattle .n
Havana were terminated and declartd
null and void.
This order, the plaintiff alleged, was in
direct violation of a section of the treaty
of Paris, declaring that so long as the
occupation lasted the United States
should assume and discharge all obliga
tions under international law for the pro
tection of life and property.

BAN JUAN, Porto Rioo, May 24.—The
most brilliant sunset ever seen here was
witnessed last evening. It was caused
by the reflection of the sun through an
atmosphere laden with smoke and other
volcanic matter. After sunset the hori

to considerable height were a livid red,
behind a curtain of billowy dark clouds.
The glare was reflected on the ocean,
and produced a most beautiful effect.
The streets and the ocean front werfe
thronged by an excited crowd.
The superstitious people of the lower

era! Knox alleging that the Elect]
Supply Dealers' association of the United
States is a trust. Information to t:
feet is being collected by Independent
electrical supply dealers. Whin they act,
which will be shortly, they will ask the
attorney general to procttd against the
association under the Sherman law.
The investigation work has teen car
ried on secretly by the indepmdt-nts and
certain dissatisfied members of the as

made known, they claim the association
would fine its recalcitrant numbers, boy
cott and blacklist them and would use
its alleged enormous powet tv shut off

What the Cbangei Are.
The charges made against the associ

deliberate purpose of restraining trade
and destroying competition, that it has
partitioned the selling territory of tho
United States into three- divisions— Kast
ern, "Western and Southern—and in these
divisions it permits or prevents the sale
of electrical'supplies; that it fixes the

that the association maintains a boycott
