So is it possible that this is to be tho issue be tween tho two sides of the legislature this fall? It is quite fitting that Vermont, of which lie is the most distinguished na tive, should by vote of its State Legis lature, forward to Congress George Dewey's title to the rank of Admiral. The people of tho Union are in unani mous accord wilh the memorial. Bos ton Journal. The many "tips" which arc coming in from men who are already settled in our newly -acquired territory advising the public not to go there from this country has a possible double signifi cance either the advisers know a good thing when they haveit.or if they really speak tho trnlli it does not certainly au ger well for the benefit our country is to receive. Those are however but two sides of an important question. Spain has taken her turn at trying to ascertain her strength as compared with the other nations of the earth and she found out in three shcrt mouths that her antiquated methods were no more capable of coping with her active young opponent than is the average College Professor lit to fight lifes battles when cast out into the world. Now lu r part ner old France is on the verge of a dis covery as astounding to her as was Spain's discovery at Santiago and Manila. Should France get mixed up in the lair of the British Lion she will never get out alive, but tdiu will be laid in a shallow pauper's grave beside of the one already dug for the Castillian realm. River Street is still the scene of many high old limes, but some of the subjects are somewhat glum over the departure of their Queen who it is said has left for fresh fields and pastures new. Some of them are also mourning for the bag of butternuts which did not arrive on last Sunday's express. It is rumored however that the chief of scouls will try some placo tomorrow where wire fences are not too numerous and where thieves are allowed to break in and steal with impunity. While they are waiting for his return the time will bo pleasantly taken up in getting acquaint ed with the new "neighbors" who have lately come amongst them with tho "bct of references." Governor Smith had considerable to say in his message about good roads, and some of his ideas were not half bad cither. It is a lamentable fact that Vermont has some of the worst? loads in the country. Tho five per cent lax which is redistributed among the dif ferent towns is supposed to go into per manent improvements, but when some of these all wise road commissioners of back towns, who think they know all about road building, get hold of their towns share they proceed to lay it out according to their own peculiar ideas and not one dollar in ten is expended so as to give any lasting benefit. The wise lawmakers now in session should make some provisions that will insure permanent improvements to our high ways, We have already spent money enough to have good roads, but it has been tpent in haphazare fashion, by men who were in no way fitted to have charge of its expenditure.

Washington, Oct. 15. Dr. Louis U Seaman, mujor and surgeon of the First volunteer engineers, was the v itness of the tiny before I lie wur investigating commission. lie saw service In Porto Uleo and hud been uoHu as making serious (li"iT,e. against the manner of conducting the war. lie asked that he be permitted to have present in the room us a friend Mr. 10. F. Ayreault, an attorney of New York. The request be nii m inted, he said he would affirm rather than be sworn. Me declined to stand up for t h in ceremony, saying: "I will sit. 1 don't have to stand up." No objection was made on the part of the commission, and the testimony proceed ed. Dr. Seaman said ho had never seen any military service before the begin ning of the present war, but he had studied at Princeton and afterward in London. Berlin and Paris. After Join ing the service and before going to Por to Rico he was stationed with his regi ment at Camp Townsend. There his requisitions were promptly filled, and no regiment went to the front better prepared to tope with disease or casu alty. The command Failed south on the Chester, and there was no serious sick- 'DU. LOUIS L. SEAMAN. ness going out. He had left Porto Rico on the 20th of September. The regiment had enjoyed better health In Porto Rico than had been anticipated, and there were only two deaths in the command during the stay there up to the time of his departure. A. regimental hospital was established, and there was never at any time a deficiency in medical sup plies. The same was nlso true of the tentage and the ambulance supplies furnished by the quartermasters' department. The commissary department had also fur nished sufficient army rations, but he complained of them us being unsuita ble for nn army in the tropics. "It is the same ration used in the lake re gions when the mercury is 40 degrees below zero. . It is not suitable, and the men do not want it," he said. He added that the men were at lirst denied the right to commute their rations, and the men came to him by hundreds com plaining of the deprivation of this right. He complained especially of the short age of rice and declared that officers In sisted the men should take more fresh meat than they der-lrrd. Sick Foil on Arm,' Kntloim. He said the sick were fed only with the army rations. He failed to secure any change of diet for his patients, notwithstanding he made frequent de mands upon the quartermaster of the regiment and upon the surgeon of the corps. I'e was told that no other food was i;-ued to any regiment In that service and that it would lie of no use to make a formal requisition In writing. However, ths men in the hospital did not suffer, because the Red Crosa fur nished the desired assistance. Dr. Seaman said that he had been In charge of 200 convalescents on the Oh davn returning from Ponce. The ship was supplied with army travel rations, which, while plentiful and good of the kind, were not suitable to invalids. He refused to give this food to his patients and appealed for a different variety to the Red Cross and National Aid society and had been supplied by them with what he desired. As a consequence all the patients, with one exception, gained weight and strength during the voyage. He made no formal requisition to the government authorities for different ra tions because he was told he could get only the regular rations and because of the willingness of the lied Cross to fur nish what he considered better food. When Governor Reaver pressed the wit ness to explain why there was no requi sition made for condensed milk and tea, he replied that Chief Surgeon Snowden had told him they could not be had. Returning to his story In Porto Rico, Dr. Seaman said there had been univer sal complaint at the hospitals of a de ficiency of suitable supplies. There were times when the lied Cross society did not have these. While there was no shortage of the legular rations, he thought many men had sufered for want of pioper food. He had been told repeatedly that the GO cents a day ra tion for the sick could not be furnished in I'orto Rico. It was not even supplied to the general military hospital. Dr. Conner urged Dr. Seaman for a statement us to whether he had made a formal written requisition for the comimitat ion of supplies by the commis sary department. 'I'he la ter replied he had not done so, but insisted that his reason for this failure was found In the fait that he was constantly intwrned that no such exchange could be made. He said lie had only six hours in which to supply the Obdam, and he had se. cured from the commissary only the regular travel rations, but he had mads In tho City of Barre. ? to October 81st, 1808, Inclusive. no formal demand for other suitable foods for the sick. He said In. reply to a question that he did not know that the commissary at Ponce had on hand (1500.000 or any other sum- for supply ing delicacies to the sick. He only knew that they were nt)t supplied. BRADFORD'S VIEWS. lie llcnHe I'lillliiplnr (tueatlon With Unr Commlaalonrra. Paris, Oct. 15. Commander Bradford, V. S. N., who has arrived here from Washington, has been examined by the members of the United States peace commission relative to the conditions prevailing and the main features of In terest in the Philippine Islands, with which the commander is well acquaint ed. The fifth Joint session of the two commissions was convened at 2 o'clock. It may be said that the first, second and third meetings scarcely penetrated the surface of any protocol point, and less still the marrow. Last Tuesday, however, marked the Spanish present ment regarding the Cuban debt, which has, during recess, brought the Ameri cans to serious preparation, adjustment of their diplomatic forces and to the formulation of a plan upon which they may ultimately stand In relation to tha Cuban phase of their mission here. It is not unlikely that since Tues day's meeting the Americans, who have been exceedingly busy, have determined upon an attitude toward the Spanish proposition that the United States as sume the Cuban debt In whole or In part and that it has been reduced to writing for presentation to the Span iards at the present session, stating the American view broadly as to what is the Cuban debt, what proportion is fairly chargeable to the island as legal and beneficial thereto and the propor tion to be charged to Srtln as benefi ciary of the so called CulAn debt. A hasty conclusion, however, should not be drawn from the fact of this careful weighing of the Spanish propo sition by the Americans that they ac cept either alternative classification of the Cuban obligation, but rather that they are acting on a line and purpose to meet every point raised as ex haustively as presented. They have thoroughly traversed the Cuban debt views and the proposals submitted In writing by the Spaniards on Tuesday. The Americans,, therefore, undoubtedly submitted In writing their return for the Fmn'sh presentment, and there will be cither nn oral discussion or a writ ten interchange of views at the next meeting. StoriPM Aliont Gnrela Denied. Havana, Oct. 15. The ald-de-camp and secretary of General Calixto Gar cia. Cosme de la Torrlente, is quoted in an interview as saying that the general has not accepted any post from General Lawton or the other American officials, that It is not true he is making a tour of the eastern part of Cuba advising the disbanding of the Cuban army and that there is no truth in the statement that Garcia Is going to the United States for the purpose of endeavoring to raise a loan, which he has no author ity to do. The aid-de-camp and secre tary further asserted that Garcia has not denied the legality of the actual revolutionary government of Cuba, nor has he accepted the supremacy of the United States; but, it appears, Garcia has unofficially expressed the opinion that the present Cuban government, owing to lack of numbers and person nel, could not be considered legal, as a quorum was impossible, and therefore its actions are unconstitutional. Will Admit Tobacco Free. Washington, Oct. 15. Assistant Sec retary Powell of the treasury depart ment has consented to the admission free of duty into Santiago of 100,000 pounds of Cuban tobacco in the pos session of General Franco Sanchez, having charge of the insurgent army at Mayarl. This is a lot of "booty" to bacco, and the proceeds of the sale will be expended for the benefit of the Cu ban army, which needs supplies of clothing and subsistence. The question was referred to the war department by General Lawton and In turn sent to the treasury department for Its recommen dation. Stnff Ollloprn Will Be Retained. Washington, Oct. 15. It Is not proba ble that there will be a muster out of any number of staff officers to corre spond to the number of general officers which were included in the discharge order a few days ago. The department finds, in view of the fact that a number of officers have resigned or been honor ably discharged, that the demand for staff officers in different places makes it almost Impossible to dispense with the services of many more at present. A Itevolt Asm In at Agnlnnldo. Manila, Oct. 15. A rumor here says that Macabulos, chief of the five north ern provinces of the Philippine islands, has rebelled against Aguinaldo and that hard fighting has already taken place between the opposing factions. It is also reported - here that General Rios, the Spanish commander at Hollo, has sent emissaries from that place to undermine Aguinaldo's Influence and induce the natives to demand that Spain retain the Philippine islands. General Miles' Pinna. Omaha, Oct. 15. After his return to the Millard from the exposition, Gen eral Miles was asked what his future plans were, whether he proposed going to Leech Lake, Minn., to quell the In dian troubles there, or If he would re sume operations in Porto Rico and Cuba. His reply was: "Neither. I ex pect to go to St. Paul, Rock Island and the peace Jubilee at Chicago, and then return to Washington." Mt'N. Shermnn SneechleNH. Washington, Oct. 15.

LOUIS BONAPARTE INVOLVED lirent Secrecy Observed llearnrdlng tbe Whole AflTnlr Ilrlaaon Not SurnrUed When Told ol It. What tbe l're 8n'. Paris, Oct. 15. It Is announced here that a military plot against the gov ernment has been discovered. The Rappel, Aurore and Petite Republlque Francaise publish almost Identical sta rles on the subject. It appears that the plot was discovered by a general hold ing an Important position. The plotters were to have taken action on Saturday, during the absence of the minister of war, General Chanoine. It further ap pears that when the government was warned of the plot the ministers were not surprised, having already obtained information regarding the conspiracy. The Matin says the plot was not In favor of one of the pretenders to the throne of France, who has been talked about for some time, but was only for the purpose of changing certain offi cials of the government without torch ing the president. The premier, M. Brlsson, was among those who were not surprised when notified of the plot. He promised to take action In the mat ter. The government officials here refuse to furnish any Information regarding the discovery of the plot against the government, but It Is rumored that the conspiracy involved Prince Louis Bona parte, who is a colonel of Russian lancers and in whose favor his elder brother, Prince Victor Bonaparte, re cently resigned the leadership of the Imperialist party. It is added that cer tain political personages handed the premier important documents, includ ing a cipher dispatch, compromising certain military men. The minister of war has canceled his Intended absence from Paris. An London Seen It. A dispatch from London says: The situation in Paris Is regarded In well Informed quarters here as being more serious than at any time since the commune. The St. James Gazette says: "A military revolution, however peaceful, which replaces the Brlsson cabinet with the nominees of the gen erals would Imperii the relations be tween England and France almost to the breaking point. The semiofficial and partly inspired Paris papers are still pretending that negotiations are proceeding between the two govern ments, and France believes It, although everybody In England knows the state ment to be ridiculous. Even supposing Major Marehand is unconditionally withdrawn from Fashoda, the difficul ties with France will in no way end. Behind it lies the whole question of the Iiahr el Ghazal, the richest prize in the Sudan." The Politique Coloniale publishes a dispatch from the Ivory coast, Upper Guinea, saying that the French arms have received a serious check. A col umn of Tirailleurs, which had been dispatched to suppress a rising of the Bourbourys, was forced to retreat, with a loss of seven killed and ten wounded. The Bourbourys, the dispatch says, are preparing to march upon Jacquesvllle, where a number of . French trading posts have been established. The railroad workers' union has posted placards ordering a strike, urg ing the strikers to refrain from violence and informing the public that if dan ger threatens the country, the strikers will immediately return to their posts. Thi.s strike Includes the Algerian prov inces. But, In spite of the placarding, the threatened general strike did not take place. The workmen stopped to read the placards announcing the strike, but there was no disorder. Nearly all the laborers are at work, and the railroad service is uninterrupted, the railroad men having apparently ignored the de cision of the committee representing them. Mnrelinnd's Heport In Khartum. Cairo. Egypt, Oct. 15. A steamer hav ing on board an officer belonging to the French force under command of Major Marehand. now nt Fashoda, on the Nile, has arrived nt Khartum. This officer Is the bearer of the report sent for by the French minister for foreign affairs, M. Delcnsse, by courtesy of the British government over the Anglo-Egyptian lines of communication. It Is presumed the officer will proceed to Cairo In order to be able to use the official cipher of the French consulate here for transmitt ing the report to Paris. Xntlonnl Council of Women to Meet. Omaha. Oct. 15. The National Coun cil of Women of the United States will meet here Oct. 24-29 under the auspices of the women's department of theTrans niisslssippi International exposition. The executive committee will meet, the morning of the 24th, and the first open session will be in the afternoon of the day when the delegates will be wel comed, the acknowledgment being made by May Wright Sewall, president of the National Council. Sinter of the llednionda Dead. New York, Oct. 15. A personal letter from Dublin announces the death of Mrs. Dora Howard at St. Savin, France. Mrs. Howard was the sister of Mr. John Redmond, M. P., and Mr. William Redmond, M. P., and a daughter of the late Mr. W. A. Redmond, M. P. for Wexford. Mrs. Howard and her late husband were well known In New TorK and on the Pacific coast, where they had a number of relatives. Snrsent Renln-ns t'oinmlsalonerahlp. Peoria, Ills., Oct. 15. Frank P.

Chi "ftso, Oct. 15. Snow fell In this city for over an hour. It was the first this season and the earliest in 26 years. A gale accompanied the snowfall, mak ing navigation on Lake Michigan im possible. The Need of Alaska, San Francisco, Oct. 15. Thomas New ell, a prominent citizen of Boston, who has Just returned from Alaska, where he has spent four months annually for the last 13 years, says that the district should have a representative in con gress and should have the protection of adequate land laws. He also thinks that the prohibitory liquor law original, ly enforced to protect the Indians, but now possible of evasion with a great population of white men and thousands of miles of unguarded seacoast, should be replaced by high license producing revenue sufficient to pay many of the expenses of the territory. GUABDING NEGB0ES. Colored Miner From Alabama Now I'nder Police Protection. Rnrlna-flpld. Ills.. Oct. 15. All of the negro miners from Alabama who came to work in "the Chlcago-Virden coal onmnnnv'a mines nt Vlrden. with the exception of a few who went north on the train from Springfield, are in Al len's hall, the headquarters of the local miners' union in this city. Policem are guarding the hall. Mayor Wheeler had the streets clear ed of miners for several blocks from the hall. The negroes number 108. It was understood that the negroes would be shipped back to Alabama, but It was not done. Adjutant General Reece states that the Federation of Miners has refused to have anything to do with the trans portation of negroes from here to their homes, that the state has no authority to send them away and that the au thorities are in a quandary. The funeral of Edward Walsh, one of the Springfield miners killed at Vlrden, has occurred. In order to prevent any demonstration against the negroes by the miners Troop B of Bloomlngton and Troop D of Springfield, First Illi nois cavalry, and Company F of the Sons of Veterans, MacComb, were re tained here. Vlrden Fnll of Troopa. Virden, Ills., Oct. 15. Colonel Young's Illinois cavalry has relieved Battery B of guard duty In the city. Colonel Young is ranking officer and will be In command of all troops here, but will not assume his duties until he has look ed the ground over and held a consulta tion with the mine officials and Cap tains Craig and Fevler, who have been in command since troops were first or dered here. All trains with freight or passengers stopping here are carefully searched for negroes. Two hundred members of the First cavalry and Third infantry, under command of Colonel Young, have arrived, and 175 more are expected. These, with the 128 men la the Galcsburg battery and Elgin com pany of the Sons of Vetefens, will give Colonel Young a force of over 500 men. The arrival of Colonel Young's com mand has caused a feeling among the strikers that the negroes will be kept out at all hazards. This town presents a most military aspect. Soldiers are met everywhere, even out In the most lonesome streets on the outskirts of the town. Some of the militiamen were in anything but a happy frame of mind, as they hud been on duty nearly 12 hours without anything to eat. To Tnke Negroes to Pann. Pana, Ills., Oct. 15. It Is expected in mining circles here that the negroes who failed to land at Virden are to be brought to Pana. In that case blood shed will likely follow. The militia and miners here are being posted hourly on every move made at Vlrden. Will Sail I'nder Oar Flag. Tacnma, Oct. 15. It Is stated on good authority that the Northern Pacific Steamship company Is arranging to put under the American flag six British steamers which it is operating to China and Japan from this city. These steam ers include the transport Arizona, which was sold to the government last July; the Tacoma, Olympla, Columbia and Ar gyle. It Is believed that the Arizona will he transferred back to the Northern Pacific at Hongkong when the govern ment no longer needs her. Wynian Goes Sonth. Washington, Oct. 15. Surgeon Gen eral Wyman of the marine hospital service has left here for a trip of a week or ten days' inspection of . the work in the south In fighting yellow fe ver. He will go direct to Cincinnati and then to Chattanooga, Atlanta, Mo bile, New Orleans and other points. Ha will confer with the state and local health authorities. The fever Is now reported at Amite City, in Tangipahoa parish, La., and the town and parish have been quarantined. l,nntern Hold All Night Meeting. Brockton, Mass., Oct. 15.
