Two Brazilian cruisers have been pur. chased by the United State, the Ama Bona which U complete la every respect, and another vessel which Is very near completion. Both are One cruisers of the last end beet produote of the Armstrong yards In England. '' ' James . Hayden, a retired rnanufact. urer, formerly of Wllllmantlo, died In Providence, R. I., Saturday. lie was born In Albion, II. I., In 1830, and was one of the engineering party who laid out the New London Northern railroad In 1843. He leaves a widow, son and daughter. Bpaln has remonstrated against the as sembling of the U. 8. fleet at Key West, on aooount of Influence it may have with the approaching elections In Cuba. No official rejoinder Is looked for. The Fern Is to replace the Montgomery at Havana. The report of the Maine Investigation Is expected within a day or two. John Reed, alias Spencer, the alleged bunoo worker, was again on trial In East Cambridge Monday on the charge of swindling Charles Sweetser, a Chelms ford farmer, out of $3,500. The jury re turned a verdict or guilty ana He was sentenced to serve a term of not lees than four nor mors than live vests, to folio the term previously fixed. The American thread company, which has just been Incorporated under the laws of New Jersey with a capital of $ 10,000,. 000, Is the outgrowth of some months of effort to combine the leading cotton thread companies of the oountry not Included In the Coats combination, and Is composed of the following concerns : The Wllllman tlo the Merrick thread company and the Iladley thread company of Holyoke, the William Clark company, the Baretow thread oompany, Alexander King & Co., th Warren thread oompany, the Nation al thread company, the Kerr thread com pany, th New England thread company, th Ruddy company, the Olasgo yarn thread oompany and the Qlaego thread oompany. Judge Owlght Loomla has given his de cision In ths two Tolland county superior court cases which were heard by him In Hartford s few weeks ago as stats rfree. The first wss brought by the Hock vl lie Savings Bank In the form of an Inter pleader to determine who was entitled to 530 whloh was on deposit In the bauk.to the credit of Arnold Converse, late of Homer, and which was claimed by Angle 8. Wftlcott, who has been housekeeper for Mr. Converse for many years before he died, and also by Carlos A. Converse, as administrator of the estate of his father. The other action was brought by Miss Woloott to recover for services rendered Mr. Converse tor many years prior to the time of his death. Boiners people had a great Interest in the case and daring the two days Judge Loom Is took testimony many residents of the section where Mr. Converse lived were called as witnesses. Judge Looml has decided the oases In favor of Miss Wolcott, that she Is entitled to the money on deposit in the Rockvllle Savings Bank and that she Is entitled to receive f 527 from the estate of Arnold Converse for services rendered aim,- . James P. Andrews and Judge Briscoe appeared for Miss Wolcott and Charles Phelps for Carlos Converse. Washington Latter. Washington, Mar. 14, IMS. Although Secretary Long has again officially denied the renewed statement that the president had been Informed of ths nature of the report that will be msde by ths naval court of Injury, there is no doubt that the president. In common with almost everybody else, fully expects that ths report will be that the explosion was on the outside of the Maine. Of course, he cannot act until the official report is made, but he can get ready to back up his action, and that he Is doing. Every ship that can possibly be made use of In case of a war with Bpaln is being care fully looked after by naval experts, and every manufactory with a plant for making guns or ammunition, hss received aseur ances that the government will, until further notice, buy everything In that lias they can make. The only actual enlistments yet being made are of men for the two new artillery regiments, authorized by oongress.snd of men for the navy, but the war depart ment Is getting together arms, am muni tlon and accoutrements for 100,000 men, so that there will be no delay In getting any army together at short notice. We are already going ahead too fast for Spain,' which Is now showing an anxiety to delay matters. Nearly every day brings a new and more or less elaborate scheme for some sort of Intervention la Cuba by this government before the public, but President Mo- Klnley's scheme, If he has one, Is still un. known. Ths latest Idea Is that ths U. 8. shall demand of both, the Bpalnards and Cubans that hostilities cease, and that some sort ot an arrangement be made whereby ths Cubans ars to control Cuba and to remain nominally under control of Spain. The advocates of this 'scheme think It an all around good one because It would obviate the necessity of this govern ment sssumtng control of Cuba. Th say that ths Cubans are unfitted for lo dependent self-government, snd that uo ill ths population becomes much Improved ths Island would not make a desirable as cession to ths U. 8. j therefore that the logical outcome Is a Cuban government under the Spanish suspioes. But all this Is put forward la the belief snd depend ent upon the contingency that Spain will satisfactorily meet the demands that may be mads on account of the loss of the Maine, and that we shall not bays ;to fight to enforce those drmacds - belief : that Is heavily in the minority. v If the talk of an alliance between Esg land and the U. whloh was started several days ago, because of a message of congratulation brought to President Mvf Klnley from Queen Victoria, by the British Ambassador, was Intended as a feeler of public sentiment, those' respoo slble for It must be convinced that such alliance Is desired by any considerable number of Americans. This oountry would need no assistanos to whip Spain.. Moay t ChUdrea or Sickly.
