Juat half nn hour after midnight tonight
the Transmlsslsslppl Exposition will exist
only In the recollection of the multitudes It
lhas Interested and educated and Inspired.
The gates will close for the last time on
the spectacle that han given the world an
unprecedented conception ot western pluck
nnd resource.
The last day ot the enterprise
will be celebrated In a manner I
Jilting Us magnitude. Aside from the Im
mense crowd that now seems assured there
will bo nothing spectacular or elaborate.
Anything that could be conceived would be
commonplace as compared with the great
events that have now become historic. The
exercises of the day will bo distinguished
rather by simplicity than by pageanlry and
will consist largely of n serious and dis
passionate examination of the results that
have been achieved. There will be a com
parison of notc-s between those who have
contributed to the undertaking and the men
who have expended their money nnd carried
It to a successful Issue. It will be a sort of
lovefcast at which nil who are Interested In
the enterprise will bo given ample reason
for gratification.
As the last day ot the show promises to
register the biggest attendance In Its history
the last Sunday very appropriately fell In
line with one of the largest Sunday crowds
that has over been seen on the grounds
Evwi at this late date the sun was warn
nnd mellow , while Just enough frost lingered
In the atmosphere to make It Invigorating
Bevoral thousand people paid 60 cents apiece
nt the gates before 1 o'clock and after that
hour , when the half rate came Into pluy ,
the rush at tha turnstiles was suggestive of
n prosperous week day. Thousands of
strangers from the adjacent towns and coun
try came In to see the finish of the show and
In spite of the fact that pretty nearly the
cntlro population of Omaha Is scheduled to
como out today a largo proportion of It
mingled with yesterday's arrivals. From
noon until late In the afternoon there .was
n continual access of visitors and In the end
there were as many people In the main
court as arc usually apparent on a 40,000
day. The audiences that listened to the two
In net ! band concerts would have been a
peed deal bigger If the capacity of the Audi
torium could have been stretched to hold
them , but as It was hundreds of people were
unable to find even standing room from
which to hear the music. The exhibit build
ings were exceptionally well patronized for
Sunday and the domain of the spleleir nnd
dancing girl was Invaded by the overflow.
The exercises that will signalize the for
mal end of the exposition will occur In the
Auditorium at 3 o'clock. They will consist
of short speeches by the members ot the
executive committee nnd n somewhat elab
orate address by President Wattles. The
latter will deal exhaustively with the finan
cial results of the enterprise and will give
the stockholders a very accurate Idea of the
jireclso condition of the treasury. At 6
o'clock the management will tender a dinner
nt the cafe to a large number of Invited
guests , who .will Include the city and county
officials. There are no formal toasts to be
given , but President Wattles will probably
call on several of the guests to opeak In
formally. This accomplished , the guests will
bo taken to see the fireworks and later on
o. grand round-up of the Midway.

Today Is Omaha day , and Its citizens ,
through whoso generosity nnd energy the
exposition has been made the astonishment
of the world , will fittingly celebrate the
successful close of their undertaking. Its
people will drop their work , rloso their
chops , forget the worries of the counting
room nnd the school house and meet with
ono purpose , where their hearts have been
eo long on the exposition grounds. The
( streets downtown will look like those of a
deserted city. The stores will nearly nil be
closed , as well as the banks , ralroad offices
nnd schools.
The day U to bo observed ns a civic holi
day and the various labor organizations
have united In passing resolutions to ntli-ii'l
the exposition In a body. The employes of
of all the large concerns have been notified
that their duties today are not bchltrl the
counter or the desk but nt the White City.
The management of the exposition confi
dently expect that there will be 100,000 ad
missions to the grounds during the day and
111 bo greatly disappointed If the record
for President's day Is not far exceeded. Ren-
oral Manager Clarkson has announced that
those holding coupon passes may hand them
to the gatekeeper and have the turnstiles
turned to register nil that nro still outstand
ing. The rate for the day will be 25 cents
for ndult-s and 10 cents for children.
Mayor Moores has sent letters to the
mayors of several of the adjacent cities , ask
ing them to join with Omaha In making the
day a success , explaining that It Is not only
Omaha's celebration but also that of all whe
contributed by their Interest nnd good will
to the achievement. ThU , In connection will
the low rates that the railroads nro offering
is expected to materially swell the crowd.
The gates will not be clojed nt the ivgulnt
hour , nnd the crowd will be allowed to re

The people on the Midway have made upeclal
preparations for the attraction and enter
tainment of those who watch the death , and
U la expected that that famous street will
ECC a merry croud until n late hour.

Beginning today the Department of Trans
portation will bo kept busy attending to th (
applications of thousanls of exhibitors ant' '
conccfislonlnts who arc preparing to bcglr
getting away early Tuesday morning. A
large number have already applied for car ;
nnd permits and during the next tow days
< ho department will be literally Inundated
with business. Top number ot cars thai

easily he estimated. One exhibitor alone
has filed an order for sixteen cars In which
to carry away his possessions and there are
a number that require from six to ten cars.
So far the department has been able to meet
all demands with commendable promptness.
Ono man had to have a fifty-foot car to
carry some of his stuff and after a good deal
of hustling the department has secured one
and It will bo ready as soon as the goods
are ready for shipment. The dissolution of
the show will be rapid and during the first
few days of November the grounds will pre
sent as busy a scene as can bo found In the
country.

With the close of the exposition the Indi
cations arc that the organization that has
managed the big show during the last sum
mer -will find Itself with several law suits
upon Its hands. In some ot them the papers
are prepared and ready for service as noon
as the gates close for the last time , while In
ethers the facts nro all In the hands ot the
attorneys who have been retained nnd who
will begin upon their petitions during the
present week.
Probably the most Important suit that the
exposition will have upon Its hands Is that
to bo brought by the Streets of Cairo. This
company will sue the exposition association
for $50.000 and will file Its pelltlon within
the next day or two. Manager Nlncl of the
treets of Cairo contends that he has a good
: auso of action and proposes to leave the
natter to a jury to pass upon the merits of
Is claims. He contends that when he came
ere he was granted the exclusive right to
ut in an oriental street , showing the cji
ems , costumes , methods and hublts of the
coplu of the orient. Contracting with him
: o do this , he will allege that later on tlio
xposltlon gave a similar concession to the
streets of All Nations , thereby damaging

The proprietors of the Wild West show
ire contemplating a damage suit and If It
s brought they will ask that they be
iwarded $50,000 on n violation of contract.
These men contend that when they bought
heir concession and paid for the space , It
ivas with the distinct understanding that
hey were to have the exclusive right to put
in sham battles , Indian dances and to ex
hlblt Indians as they appear upon their
native heath. Ilegardless of this contract ,
he Wild West men will allege that the ex
position management brought 600 Indians
lere and that by reason of their appearing
n sham battle and dances , their business
ivas Injured In the extent for which they
propose to bring suit.
Kred T. Cummins will allege that his busi
ness has suffered to the extent of not less
han $2.1,000 by reason of the acts of the
Department of Concessions. He will aver
an exclusive contract for furnishing reserved
seats at several places about the grounds
and that after paying his money , the con
tract was violated by the exposition and free
seats were placed , thus depriving him of his
revenue. For another cause of action Cum
mins will set up the claim that -without due
process of law the exhibit department of the
exposition closed up n number of lunch
stands that he was operating and for which
10 had paid all fees exacted by the exposi
tion.

Kvcn the Solon Springs Water company
men feel that they are entitled to equitable
relief. They allege that prior to the open-
ng-of1 the.5 exposition they were given the
exclusive right to supply water upon the
grounds and that complying with the con
ditions of their contract , they located tanks
nt convenient places about the grounds
They were to charge for this water at the
rate of a. penny per glass. Soon after th
water tanks were located , the Solon Springs
men will allege that violating the condi
tions of the contract , the exposition man
agement put In water tanks and furnished
water , free of charge , thus ruining their
business. By reason of this the water men
will ask about $10,000 damages.
Numerous other parties nro getting ready
to brluft suit , but ns yet they have not
formulated their demands , but will do so
within the next few days.

KvhU.ltorn Will lU-fdve Their Iii-
HlKiilii of Merit nt Once.
The first shipment of the medals and diplo
mas that will be distributed among the
prize winners during the next two or three
days arrived yesterday. There wore ten cnses
containing 1,000 medals , and a number of
huge cases , which contained all of the lO.GUO
diplomas that have been awarded. There
are about 5,000 additional medals on the road
and It IK positively announced that these
will bo on hand before Wednesday night.
Consequently every exhibitor will bo able to
obtain his medals and diplomas before ho
goes away , a result that has been accom
plished by no previous exposition. Many of
the exhibitors who are in Omaha have been
compelled to wait for months for their med
als at previous expositions and they nro
hugely delighted with the promptitude with
which the business of the Omaha show has
been conducted.
Kach of the medals Is enclosed In a hand
some case with a plush Interior , which shows
the medal to excellent advantage. All the
medals are bronze when they are received
by the exhibitor , but the company by which
they nro furnished ban representatives on
the ground lo do the plating nnd engraving
at a nominal price. It will cost the exhibit
ors $3 for the plating and engraving of each
gold medal and $2.50 apiece for the silver
medals. At previous expositions they have
been charged $4 nnd $5 nplcce for gold plat
ing.
Beginning this morning the huge stacks ot
diplomas will be filled out for distribution
to the exhibitors. A force of six skilled
engrossers will be ln work nt once , and It
Is expected that the whole lot will be ready
for delivery In two or three days. The ill-
ploma Is said to be the most artistic pro
duction that has over been given by any ex
position.

BROKEN BOW , Neb. , Oct. 30. ( Special. )
As the day of election draws nigh Interest
In political circles Increases. There has not
been a campaign In Ouster county since tha
beginning of the populist move In 1885 ,
when the members of the populist party
have manifested so little enthusiasm over
their ticket. A large percentage of them
are apparently Indifferent as to results ,
while a number of former leaders ore openly
working against part of their ticket. No
less than four of the ex-county officers and
two of the present officers are among the
number that are using their best efforts to
defeat the tkket , besides a number of other
prominent members of the party who have
not held olllcc.
Custcr county has two representatives
and a senator and county attorney to elect.
The populist nominees most objectionable to
those opposing the ticket are C. W. Deal ,
who Is a candidate for re-election to the
senate , and L. E. Klrkpatrlck , candidate for
county attorney. Unless there Is a reaction
between this and election day there Is
Ittlo doubt that the populist BOO majority
n the county n year ago will be wiped out
and a republican majority scored for those
two offices.
The Republican of this place has bsen wng-
ng a hot warfare against the populist nom-
nees for several weeks , In showing up their
records with telling effect. Many populls's
now concede that Heal nnd Klrkpatrlck will
bo defeated , while some republicans are
more sanguine nnd feel that the dissatisfac
tion has become general nnd It will defeat
the whole county , legislative , state and con
gressional ticket In the county. The middle-
of-the-road populists , who are opposed to
their elective ofllcers receiving nnd riding
on railroad passes , express themselves that
they believe In purifying the party by de
feating "the whole push , " and as this In
cludes every state olllcer renomlnatcd , It
looks as If they will all go down together
as far as Ouster county Is concerned.
In Thayer County.
HEBRON , Neb. , Oct. 30.--Spcclal. ( ) As
the campaign draws to a close the observer
of events can recognize a change from the
conditions of the last two years In this
county. Numerous causes have been at
work to convince thinking men among the
fualonlsts that no part of the present pros
perity can bo ascribed to either the policy
or personality of their representatives In
office. In the county campaign very little
Interest has been aroused except In the
south commissioner's district , where the
fusion candidate has Incurred Iho enmity of
the popullste. Philip Werner , the republican
nominee , will draw largely from their vote
and wlfl undoubtedly bo elected. The clos
est fight Is over the office of county attor
ney. Personal matters have entered Into
this contest , making the 'result ' doubtful ,
with the chances In favor of W. E. Goodhue ,
the candidate on the republican ticket.
But It Is on the legislative and congres
sional contests that the Interest of this people
ple Is centered. The popocratlc cry Is "Sen
ator Allen must be ro-elected , " and the
party seems to have no legislative policy be
yond that one object. H. P. Harding Is op
posing J. R. Morrison , the fusion nominee ,
who Is up for a second term , but whose leg-
lar.Ulve record Is not being "pointed to with
pride , " and the prospects are that Mr.
Hardlng's manly , earnest campaign will bo
crowned with success. If Jefferson county
docs ns well by Conrad Belsner , republican
candidate for float representative , as thla
county proposes to do , his majority will pre
clude any Idea of a contest over the result.
The fuslonlsts are not saying much about
Congressman Stark's chances. His speech
here a week ago was poorly attended and
coldly received. The contrast with the en
thusiastic reception accorded Mr. Hlnshaw
was most marked and the popocrats are not
slow to recognize the difference and the
causes for It. Thayer county will give Hlu-
ehaw a majority a week from next Tues
day.
day.Tho
The county will give a smaH majority for
the republican state ticket , with Hayward
and Saylor In the lead.
Hope In Antelope Comity.
NELIOH , Neb. , Oct. 30. ( Special. ) The
election of the republican legislative ticket
In Antelope county Is not without hope , al
though the probabilities are that the popu
lists will be successful. The chances for re
publican success rests wholly upon what
percentage of the democrats will this year
vote against the populists. As a rule demo
crats are dlsaatlslled with their political
allies and there are Indications that they
will break away upon some portions of the
ticket at least. The republican nominee for
representative Is O. H. McOee , who was
elected two years ago , and his opponent IB
H. C. Elwood , who Is without legislative ex
perience and of no marked ability. The
senatorial district la composed of Antelope ,
Boone and Oreeloy counties , all of which
gave handcomo majorities for the populist
ticket two years ago. While the republicans
will undoubtedly gain on the vote of that
year It Is hardly expected that the change
will be sufficient to elect their candidate , J.
R. Nichol. The populist nominee Is J. R
S. Smith. Both reside la Ibis county.
York County Cettlne In Line.
YORK , Neb. , Oct. 30. ( Special. ) > The
last few days of the campaign In
York county promises to see a lively
hustling for votes. The fuslonlsts
have been making a lively schoolhouse -
house campaign and have done more talking
at schoolhouEo meetings than the repub
licans. They admit that they have small
audiences , smaller than In campaigns here
tofore. When ono drives In the country he
sees large * new barns , large granaries and
corn cribs being built to hold surplus corn ,
oats , rye and wheat , which all farmers are
now In prosperous condition to hold as long
as they care to for better prices. ThU con
dition of affairs has never In the history
of the county been so general as now. Sen
ator John M. Thurston , owing to delayed
train eervlcM , disappointed hundreds of far
mers who came a long distance to see him
A number stayed to hear him at the night
meeting. W. A. Poynter was better adver
tised than any fuslonlst speaker nnd only a
few attended his meeting. It Is believed
that York county wilt bo carried by the
republicans nnd by Increased majorities.
The county ticket Is certain and there are
good prospects for the election ot the legis
lative ticket.
WaxhliiKtoii All ItlKlit.
"BLAIR , Neb. , Oct. SO. ( Special. ) The
rrosont Indications are that the republicans
will elect every member to the legislature
this fall. The populists are now concentrat-
Ing their forces oa C. 0. Marshall , who Is
the opposing candidate of Hon. W. D. Hal-
ler for representatlw from this county. Hal-
ler always carried the county with a large
T'Jj , U Jig hj .0. itWpsQi can
didate opposing him. The democrats do not
care , as Hnller has always usrd them fair
many will vote for him , especially the Qcr-
mans. J. H. Chambers has a walkaway , and
Mungcr of Fremont will -havo a 'small ma
jority for this county. The election depends
on Dodge county.
In Welntcr Coniity.
RED CLOUD. Neb. , Oct. 30. ( Special. )
As election day draws n'-ar the prospects
brighten for republican success In this
county. J. S. White , candidate for represent
ative , Is making a strong canvass. His rec
ord Is clear and he has a host ot friends
In both parties. Some democrats now con
cede his election. Shcpherdson , for senator
from this district. Is well and favorably
ktfown and from the present outlook will poll
a large vote. Republican success In this
county for the whole ticket Is not only a
possibility but Is now a probability.

VICTORIA , B. C. , Oct. 30. Commotion
prevails at Esciulmault and In the clubs of
the city frequented by naval men. Admiral
Palliser Is said to have received n long ci
pher message In the admiralty and Imme
diately her majesty's ship Amphlon , the
fastest cruiser on the station , was ordered
to prepare for sea. It will sail at once for
Coqulmbo to moot Its sister ship , Phaeton ,
and from there the two will proceed to Ta

Islands ,
The llagshlp Imperlouse , wlilch has Just
returned from Comox , Is also coaling , nnd
the Loander has been ordered to return from
Comox to prepare for any move that may
be decided upon. The other ships nro the
Dlrlgo , Sparrowlmwk and Icarus. The opin
ion among naval men Is that England Is dis
patching Ilcots from Halifax to the West
I Indies and from Esqulmault to Tahiti to
1 show the French how utterly Its colonies
would bo at the mercy of the British should
that country make any warlike movements.

plants , cultivated to perfection and set out
In the way that Is most pleasing to the eye.
Of the 300 varieties that are on exhibition

tory 'and ' an experiment In horticulture by
a Cornell professor but that Is the -way the

Bailey made the experiment at Cornell ,
gathering together all the known varieties
ot the chrysanthemum. He cultivated them
and obtained a number of now varieties. Ho

laramour Saturday night and who Is con-
Ined In the matron's room , line undergone
n change of heart since the awful truth
of her husband's deed , for which eho was
llrectly responsible , has dawned upon her.
She IB In a. state ot tnlnd bordering on
lysterla , moaning and orylng for her hus-
jand continually 'and cursing the day Uiat
fate led her Into the way of Sargent , the
barber who was killed. Her only thought
now Is for the safety of her husband.
When asked If she thought that her hus
band had done right In killing her para
mour she eald she did and that she now
wishes ho had done It long before he did.
"I never appreciated the worth of my
husband until now , " she said. "If wo get
out of this trouble I will go to him , get
hla forgiveness nnd with our children leave
hero and begin life anew.
Sirs. Hellck says that at no time did she
love Sargent. She says that he exerted a
hypnotic sort of spell over her , which she
could not resist. She said when ho was
not with her that she sought to forget him
and really tried tn bo the wlfo she should
be , but his presence always caused her to
break her resolutions. She any a she first
became acquainted with him In June , meet
ing him at the barber shop' at Sixteenth
and Hurt streets , where ho won then em

work.
Sent WnniliiK to Sargent.
She says she knows her husband was
driven to commit murder by her actions , and
fearing for Sargent's safety sent word to
him not to come to the bouse , as she feared
her husband would kill him. This message
was sent to Sargent Saturday morning.
Sargent , In a spirit of braggadocio , went to
the house Saturday night.
Mrs. Bellck had 'few ' callers while her
husband 'was ' besieged with strangers as
long as the police allowed him to receive
them. Nearly all commended him for his
act. Dellck , who ts a manly , straight
forward sort of a man , has little to say
about the matter other than to admit that
ho had been driven to the deed by his vic
tim's taunts and sneers. He said ho had
fought with himself for four months against
committing violence.
"Why , " said he , "I regretted buying that
revolver five minutes after the act , fearing
that I might stnln my hands In blood. When
I went homo I extracted the cartridges from
the weapon and put them In a drawer , as I
did those ot a small rlflo I had bought for
my 'boy some time before. God knows I did
not want to kill that , man but he forced mete
to do so. J am eorry I killed him but X
* In' ' ot 'God and'
think I did right the eight
man. " .
.A . , -s
with his wife's actions"was on"hcCcmiil
his children. He said had It not been for
them he would have left his wife to her
Inclinations on her flrst offense.
Sargent Wanted for IllKnniy.
Slnco the murder It has been learned that
Sargent Is wonted In Rich Hill , Mo. , and
Cbarlton , la. , for bigamy. Ho has a wlfo
living In both of those towns and It Is said
ho has several other wives In various parts
of the west. Ho posed as a conqueror of
women and gloried tn his conquests. In
Charlton nnd Illch Hill ho was known as
Lon Drussln. Sargent Is said to be his right
name , however.
An Inquest will bo held over Sargent's
body Tuesday morning. Meanwhile the po-
llco and Coroner Swansea will attempt to
learn more of his antecedents , which arc
pow unknown.
Dellck was originally from St. Louis ,
where ho has an aged mother living at 1017
Allen avenue.
PARIS' INTERNAL IMBROGLIOS
Cabinet Reconstruction IN Held In
Abeyance Comment on
UreyfiiH' Cane.
PARIS , Oct. 30. Nowhere Is there a sign
of agitation today. The city Is quiet. The
anti-Semite papers vainly endeavor , by abus
ing the Judges of the court of cassation , to
lash the public Into a hostile demonstration ,
but the people seem rather Inclined to re
sent the culpability or Imbecility of the high
ofllcers of the general staff who allowed
themselves to become the prey of unscrupu
lous forgers.
This refers especially to the officers de
puted to Investigate the Dreyfus affair. It
Is believed even now that Important facts
are being concealed In order to shield the
headquarters staff.
Most of the Paris papers approve the de
cision of the court of cassation , although the
Gaulols and the Eclair declare that even
now revision Is by no means certain. The
LIbertc bows to the decision but does not
think It will end the agitation. The Figaro
announces that Count Esterhazy has been
deprived of his membership In the Legion of
Honor.
The Dreyfus decision seems to have de
layed a solution of the cabinet crlBls. M.
Do Frcyclnot Is again hesitating to accept
the portfolio ot minister ot war on the
ground that In view of the role the Protest
ants have played In the Dreyfus case , It
would bo Inadvisable for two Protestants ,
himself and M. Rlbot , to hold the portfolios
of war and justice.
SUCCESS OF ARCTIC WHALERS

Excepting the FearleNN Three
Are Wrecked.
SAN FRANCISCO , Oct. 30. The steamer
Portland , which arrived here today from
St. Michaels , brings Improtaut news of
the Arctic whaling licet. The catch up to
October 10 was one of the largest on record
and represented In round numbers about
$1,000,000. It was divided among various
vessels , os follows : Grampus , 36 whales ;
Beluga , 50 ; Baleana , 31 ; Narwhal , 22'.i ;
Mary D. Hume , 10 ; Karruk. 0 ; William
Baylcss , 6 ; Jerome , 2 ; Alaska , 1 ; total ,
13S'/i. Of the enormous catch , 123V& whales
were taken by the vessels of tbo Pacific
Steam Whaling company , eight by vessels
owned by Roth , Blum & Co. and six by the
William Baylcs.s company , nnd the odd one
by the bark Alaska. The Portland also
represents the following whalers aa clean :
Bowhead , A rice Kuowles , Tharaber , Bui-
vldcrc and Alexander.
This accounts for the entire fleet which
went to the Arctic , with the exception of
the Fearless , which was all right when
last heard from , and the Orca , Jcealo II.

WASHINGTON , Oct. 30. An Informal ses

opportunity afforded by the presence of several
oral members of the cabinet to discuss with

the Paris situation have arisen during the
past Ihlrty-slx hours.

PARIS , Oct. 30.-Ncw ( York World Ca-
legram Special Tolegrum. ) President Me-
Clnlcy has Instructed
the American commls-
lon to demand tomorrow the cession of the
'hlllpplno group , though the American com-
ulsslon itso.f Is divided. Day , Davis nnd Frye
ro for and Gray and Reid against cession.
Tomorrow will bo the cruclul sea-
ion of the joint
peace commls-
lon. It appears to bo assumed her *
hat the American communion will demand
ho whole of the Philippine group. This
ho Spanish wilt resist by the method al-
endy explained by cable , but the ultimate
cclslon will bo determined by the manner
n which the United States proposes to deal
vlth the Philippine debt. From the hlgh-
st otllclal sources the following facts have
iccn obtained concerning this , the pivotal
liiestlon , on which success or failure of the
leuce commission depends.
The Philippine debt was created by law
'une ' 10 , 1SU7 , which authorized the Spanish
[ overnment to grant a general guarantee of
ho nation to
operations considered
neces-
ary lo n release for the Philippine treasury
o cover such obligations as in consequence
if disturbances had not been nnd could not
> e covered by the ordinary resources of the
' 'hlllpplno budget. Then the royal decree of
luno 18 , 1S97 , was authorized to Issue $400-
100 In bonds of flOO each , bearing C per cent
nterest , redeemable In forty ycara , with a
ipcclnl lion on the customs revenue of the
'hlllppincs. Besides the above national gunr-
autco 250,000 of these bonds , representing
nominal value of $25,000,000 $ , wer
placed In Spain , chlctly at llarce-
ona , Madrid nnd
Bilbao. The re-
nalnlng 150,000 bonds were originally
ntcnded to be plated nt Manila or given
u payment for advances made to the Phil ,
pplno treasury by the local Manila savings
janks nnd other
establishments for war ex-
itmses. The government not having suc-
: eeded In placing In Manila the amount al
lotted , later on placed the balance In Barce
lona. The proceeds of the Philippines loan
served mainly for the expenses of the atrug-
clC agalniit the.'Tagal rebellion and tha . -
penses of the pacification of the colony. Part
of the loan served to make the Cuban treas-
iry advances and was afterward reimbursed
Ijy the Madrid colonial ministry whnn Spain
had to send General August ! money to prepare -
pare for the defense of the Philippines.
No part of this loan , therefore , was ever
de-voted to public works or any object of
colonial utility. It was devoted wholly to
maintaining Spanish rule. I understand the
United States will apply to this loan the
same rule as to the Cuban debts , namely ,
to throw the onus on Spain ot proving by
official and duly controlled statistics com-
> lled from the decrees and budgets that the
imount really applied to purely Philippine
objects outsldo the wars and efforts to main
tain Imperial rule apalnst the will ot the
natives.
Spain Will Nut
OARTHAGBNA , Oct. SO. ( New York
World Cablegram Special Telegtaiu. )
There are no signs of military or naval ac
tivity hero at the principal Spanish arsenal
and dock yards. Several torpedo boats and
destroyers of Camera's squadron are lying In ,
the harbor dismantled and neglected with
scratch crews and only a skeleton staff ot
officers. The war vessels hero are In a
state of entire unpreparediiPBS , officcia and
sailors having got an unlimited furlough for
economy's sake. The 'torpedo school Is pur
suing In Its leisurely way Us usual atudlog
In submarine defenses and mines , but tha
work on fortifications begun before the close
of the war Is entirely abandoned. The Idea
of Spain provoking a renewal of hostilities
Is treated as ludicrous.
CADIZ , Oct. 30. ( New York World Cable
gram Special Telegram. ) Special Inquiries
here show that Admiral Chorruca Is en
deavoring to keep the warships under hla
command In tolerably good trim but lack
of funds despite repeated appeals at Madrid
cripples him severely. Ono battleship , two
cruisers , one destroyer nnd four torpedo
boats could bo got ready here with a
month'a notice. The only activity noticeable
at Cadiz Is at the stores of the Spanish
Transatlantic company In preparing anil
bringing homo the nick and wounded from
Cuba. Bitter complaint Is heard from the
government yards and private shipbuilders
because work Is being gradually abandoned
on the ships already on the stocks , or/Ing to
shortness of money.
FERROL , Oct. 30. ( Now York World
Cablegram Special Telegram. ) I find the
arsenal and dockyard hero In a state of . < > m-
pleto quiet , though the land and marine de
fenses are In n more forward state than In
any other Spanish place of arms. Fcrrol
could provide one battleship , one cruiser and
several gunboats If a lack of guns or war
Flares did not render them useless , repeat
ing the old story of Camnra'a ptiar'om
squadron. There is a great want of propar
coal here , as at Cartegena and Cadiz.
