Of course nt least I have no doubt of It this finding will finally bo eubmltted to the United States author ities , or , perhaps , the court 1ms previ ously intimated to the federal officials what the result will be. I believe it has all along been determined to con vict these three defendants. Why , just think of It , In these courts the defendants nro not permitted to sit by the sldo of their attorneys or to sug gest questions In cross-examination. In fact , the argument is the whole thing in the trial , and the recommenda tion of the fiscal is equivalent to the final Judgment of the court. Hero is n significant fact : In the case of the three men just convicted , the recom mendation of the fiscal was for a term of 24 years' Imprisonment and $135,000 fines. You see ho has boon induced to withdraw some of his recommenda tions , for the penalties have been greatly reduced. What Influence was brought on the fiscal to bring down the penalties In his final recommenda tion to the court I Imvo my opinion. " DISCUSS CUBAN QUESTION.

Many of the tahuuls of the \vegterni Pacific have In their streams and lakes' large numbers of eelB of Immense size which seldom arc used as food by the natives , who seem to have a horror of the snnkollkc creatures. The eels oC Strong's Island , one of the Caroline- group , arc peculiar in that they hiber nate regularly and seek for their place of hibernation the loftiest places which they can find. These eels sometimes will climb mountains 2,000 feet high and select the summit as the place for their win ter's rest. They select or make a de pression In the soft , moss covered soil und fit themselves into it snugly , re maining for months at a time abso lutely motionless and Inert. Sometimes the eels are covered with moss or vege table debris and at other times they arc found exposed to view with their broad , flat bends doubled back upon their bodies. After their /season of rest upon the mountain tops the eels wriggle their way down to the val leys and , plunging into the rivers and lakes , begin to feed upon ths craw 1 fish , for which crustacean they Imvo a lr it f 1 n n c a to clinrn/1 l v i lin nn. tlves. Those eels are excellent eating , but nothing will Induce the natives to touch them , nllve or dead.
