Tli session eventually adjourned un til Friday to give the Spaniards lime to prepare their reply. The session lasted over an hour. The health of President Rios of the Spanish commission is improved so he attended today. The session began at 2 o'clock and the com.nissisncrs confronted each other across the table upon which in 1781 Benjamin Franklin and his col leagues signed the treaty of Indepen dence of the United States. The day was bleak with flying clouds, fitful sunshine, whirling leaves and raw air.

During the Bession Admiral tampson refused strongly to assent to a p.oposal to grant the SpaniBh army untu Febru ary to complete the evacuation. The' meeting was not as friendly as former ones. Admiral Sampson retuseu to ae nent nn lnvitntlon from the S.'oaniards to lunch, and the commissions separat ed witnout agreeing on any pjiuu The Americans inquired u u were trim that th hiiildinirs used as con vents by the Jesuits and other reUgio-s orders, which buildings oeiong 10 me state, have been sold. The Spanish com mission returned an answer inai me report of the sale of these buildings was untrue. The only thing that had been done, the commission said, was that the Jesuits had demanded certifi cates of some old documents which wore Wpnt in th records of the depart ment of finance and the certificates had been given to them. The documents date from 1852. The realty had not b;en transferred to any one. Work For C nil mm. Work upon the landing stage for the disembarkation of the American troops upon their arrival has begun. Sixty Cubans of Colonel Menocal's com mand are employed. The engineers in charge of the work say these Cubans am ov,.oiit workers. Each laborer receives compensation at the rate of $1.20 in silver per day, $1 in cash and 0 cents credited to the mess fund pro vided by the engineers. This idea Is considered a capital one, as it insures substantial food for the workmen, who need it badly. The Cubans who have been given employment are delighted, but their comrades are extremely jeal ous. Those who have been given work were selected personally by Colonel Menocal. More men will be employed as the work progresses, and the engi neers expect to have completed within ten days a landing stage strong enough to stand rough weatner. jiupeuve. and mechanics who may be found to have been employed among the Cuban troops at Marianao will receive higher wages than laborers, their pay being made commensurate with their ability. Captain General Blanco has been in structed by the Spanish war minister to pay to each man wno wisnea vu ib main in the island $24 upon giving him his discharge from the Spanish forces, the discharged man by accepting his release forfeiting his right to shipment tlnii AKainKi simin. Ma,, nf the rank and file, mostly members of the orden publico forces. which have been here since a penuu .. t ty.a outbreak of the war, have UllUl " claims against the government of oyer $500 and the claims oi many ui guardia civil amount to $1,200. Of the latter forces several , companies which have arrived from the Interior for the purpose of entering protests against their nonpayment have , been Bent to El Morro, to what is known as u r.nt nf embarkation, where they LUG J V. lu are held virtually as prisoners, though not called by that name. They are not allowed to leave their quarters aim fed on scant army rations. The orden publico make no secret of their dissat isfaction and threaten to mutiny un ess the r claims are settled. They will find willing support among the members of the guardia civil and the regular and volunteer soldiers. It was admitted by the members of the Spanish evacuation commission, In answer to an interrogation by General Butler as to the reason wny ueuci. IBlanco had ordered the suspension of the discharge of Spanish troops, that the government had no resources with ..... jL .,o i full ace dues of the men and that the applications for discharge were so far in excess oi ticirfted that the government was un able to meet the demands made upon it and General Blanco, fearful that a. riot would occur, deemea u uuviwu.c suspend the discharges.

The particulars of the case are hard to get at on account of tho re luctance of the principals to appear be fore the courts, but the report on the streets is something like this. Joe Broggi and John Scone got into a "scrap" with tranK Mcuay at uie house formerly occupied by May Cotie, and McRav got the worst end of tho bargain, receiving a stab in the hip and another behind his riht car. Ilowland & Brown were poing across the Granite street bridge on their rounds on.l nntiend ft liirht nt the house already mentioued, about the same time a bare headed man came running down the street towards them followed by another man. On seeing the oflicers he shopped and said "Arrest that man he is going to kill me," or something similar. Officer Brown immediately started out after the pursuer and after a hard chase cap tured him tMartho Commoli place. The prisoner proved to Iwoh fjijoggi. ,()n,roturnio;5to tho-'wnfe.O officers found that a third man, the one supposed to have done tho stabbing, had made Irs escape. The wounded man was taken to Dr. Dezicl who dressed his wounds mid pro nounced them not especially dangerous. Broggi is having a hearing before Justico Scott this afternoon but Scorio's whereabouts are unknown. Wo would advise the person owning the house where the affray cccured, to secure a new tenant at once. NEW WAGONS AT COST.
