" Senor 'Aguerro dcclaiuil that Gomez was Insubordinate nnd should bo punished nnd Senor Sangullly Insinuated that the gen eral wna a traitor to Cuba. Much passion nns evident In the speeches , in some of which Gomez was declared to have been ilcllmniont In hla duties , and delinquent be cause ho had ncrepted the proposition of Hobtrt P.

"Suck. " IN > t ! ! ! ; The assembly then declared that the $3- 000,000 Is Insufficient nnd It has not yet ac cepted the proposition. The discussion of this question will soon bo taken up , now that General Gomez has been removed. Senor Gonzales do Quesada , who accom panied 'Mr. 'Porter ' In Cuba , was attacked 1 > y Senors Oualberto Gomez , Sangullly and Aguerro , mho declared that he had acted in bad 'faith ' and had deceived them. Senor Aguerro likened the present conditions con fronting the nbsembly to these that con fronted the French Chamber when It was jiroposed to Impeach President 'MncMahon. ' Colonel Mora nnd General Nunez declared that the present step was useless nnd would inako the assembly ridiculous In the eyes of the world. Among the principal speakers weio Sonars Sungullly , Aguerro , Gualbcrto Gomez , Cespedcs , Nunez , Vlllnlon and Las- tra. General Gomez received at Mollnos this afternoon a telegram announcing to Jilm the assembly's decision. Ho answered calmly : "All rlfiht , I enjoy the situation.

At the termination of the session of the assembly Senor I > astra strongly criticised some of President Andrade's rulings and was sharply called to order by President Andrade , who immediately decided the meeting over. Senor Santa Maria , formerly president of the Cuban republic , 'was ' the second man signing the Snngullly motion for Impeach ment ns amended by Senor Aguerro. The news c'f ' the action of the assembly is nil over Havana nnd the cafes are full of excited men discussing the matter. The general Impression Is one of censure of the assembly. The next session of the body will bo held Monday. The surrendered arms of the Cubans will , under agreement , bo stored away at Havana nnd Santiago In the general custody of Uho United States , but under the Immediate charge of Cubans In the employ of the military government. Every Cuban soldier must give up his arms , even If they wore boiifjlit 'by ' himself , or else he will re ceive no share of the money advanced by the United States. AMl,0Mr.lllCACI.UII IS JIHAD.

Although Kobert P. Porter , slnco his arrival here , has repeat edly announced to the official world nnd the press that his mission is In no way au thorised by hU government , his stay hero has attracted considerable attention and Is productive of good results. The Krouzo Xcltung takes exception to the fact that Mr. Porter has nowhere hinted at American concessions nnd says : "Under such conditions It would be diffi cult for Germany , to conclude n commercial treaty with the United States. " The commercial nnd liberal press , how ever , hall Mr. Porter's declarations with satisfaction. The Cologne Gazette Bays : " \Vo iiellevo the statements of Mr. Porter ter have done both couutrles great service , similar to ono Baron von Uuclow did the other day In pointing out things favorable to a friendly Intercourse between Germany nnd America. * * The government will not follow the agrarians Into tariff war fare unless the road to a commercial treaty Is blocked , and the quiet and thoughtful manner In which Influential Americans have been lately discussing matters permits no hope that such obstacles will arise. " At the instance of the government Mr. Porter this week explained the now tariffs of Cuba and Porto Hico to a commission of experts. iMr. Porter explains that a disciepancy exists between the figures of the exports and Imports of Germany and the United States furnished to the United States treasury and these apparently drawn from German olllclal sources and quoted In the agrarian press. This explains the differ ent conclusions reached. The forepart of the week was spent by Mr. Porter at Madgeburg studying the sugar question from the German point of view. A man principally Interested In the sugar Industry told ( Mr. Porter that It was hoped that the United States would waive the dis criminating tariff on German sugar as a preliminary condition to the conclusion of a commercial treaty. He also furnished statements apparently showing that the large. German manufacturers can produce sugar ns low as 2 cents a pound , which , If true , will enable them to compete with Cuban sugar. Changes which have been contemplated In the administration of the navy , which have been considered for a long time , will go Into effect on the retirement of Ad miral von Knoor , the present chlf of the navy. The emperor will then assume com mand of the navy as ho has assumed that of the army and an admiralty nnd general staff will be created with functions similar to the army general staff , the admiralty to have a separate chief , while the functions and Importance of the commanders of the naval station at Kiel nnd Wllhelmshaven will be enlarged. The naval cadet sys tem will bo reorganized and the number of cadets Is about to be doubled. Interesting tests of wireless telegraphy have been made at Kiel recently on board a number ofwar vessels , three German miles apart.

London has been favored with Ideal spring weather during the last week and there has been a marked diminution of Influenza. The marquis of Salisbury caught n bad cold while returning from Windsor on tha occasion of the formal presentation of the United States ambassador , Mr. Joseph II. Choate , to the queen , nnd he has been con fined to his house ever since. The premier is unable to preside at the cabinet meetings or to hold the usual reception of the mem bers of the diplomatic corps. Thus Mr. Chonto has not yet called formally at the foreign office. Sirs , Choato has been In undated with Invitations to social events which nra about to take place. All the am bassadors have left their cards. The absence of the queen and the prince of Wales respectively from the opening drawing room nnd levee of the season has given rise to much criticism nnd a great deal of giumbllng among society people. As one of the papers saya , "This Is one of the duties belonging to the throne nnd to the heir and the public , which pays the piper , expects ro > nl music. " Another paper says : "Outside of the charmed circle of the Marlboroughs and Manchesters there Is n very smart American set In London now , Ladles Abluger and Oxford , Mrs. Offby Sorester , whoso daughters were the belles of the Hlvlera season last year ; Mrs. Blake , Mrs. Alfred Paris , who Is holding the most pleasant weekly recep tions In Chesham street , nnd Mesdames Balcheler and Freeman Schulgo of Phila delphia.

The newspapers hero still pay considerable attention to the progress toward recovery made by Iludynrd Kipling. The Times on Friday published prominently a set ofverses after the style of "The Barrack Iloom Ballads , " nnd supposed to be from "Tommy Atkins to Kipling on His Illness.

The bill of Harold James Rcckltt , liberal member for the Brlgg division of Lincolnshire , raising the flash point of petroleum from 73 to 100 , is the result of a bitter campaign waged by certain evening papers against the "deadly low flash. " it comes before the House of Commons next Wednesday and will meet with strong op- pcsltlon , Its opponents contending that the originators of the agitation against the American oils are the Scotch petroleum re finers. 'Moreover , it is shown that many of the accidents during the last year wore not duo to American oil , tout to Russian oil , whose test point is 103. The bill , it Is declared , seeks to compel the public to use oils which apparently have been but little favored by the people up to now and favora Russia at the expense of America. International oil Trust. Three representatives of an American syndicate are over here negotiating for a combination of the English and American oil mills. They expect to carry the schenio through , and In about three months' tlmo there will > be the 'biggest ' trust ever formed on this sldo of the Atlantic , Involving capi tal to the amount of $75,000,000. The idea Is that each side abandon competition on the other's ground and come to a working arrangement regarding the continental business , especially that of southern Europe in oil and seed cake. The oil milling In dustry here is confined to Hull , Liverpool and London. Hull | 3 the principal center , but Liverpool has the largest concern of the kind in the world. The lord mayor of London , Sir John Voce Moore , presided at a meeting held nt the Mansion house this week to further the pro posed national commemoration In 1S01 of the ono thousandth anniversary of the death of King Alfred. The queen has given the movement her patronage nnd the memorial will take the form of a bronze statue of King Alfred , to bo erected In his royal city of Winchester. The United States ambassador wrote regretting that hh visit to the queen at Windsor on the day of the meeting prevented him attending. The secretary , who Is a former mayor of Winchester , announced that a committee had been formed in 'America ' to co-operate with the movement hero and that its mem bers include Colonel John Hay , the secre tary of state ; Bishop Potter and the presi dents of Vale nnd Johns Hopkins universi ties. King Alfred being the founder of Great Britain's maritime supremacy , a naval display will be held and the largest armored cruiser In the world , to bo launched in 1901 , will bo christened King Alfred. Wolvesey castle , the ancient residence of the English kings near Winchester , will bo secured as n memorial museum. The sum of 30.000 ( $150,000) , ) is asked for to carry out the whole scheme. Shamrock Taking : Form. P. Fife , Jr. , the yacht designer , has been in London frequently during the last few- weeks , studying the lines of the Shamrock as it grows into shape. He has not modified his plans In the slightest detail , evidently being as pleased with its appearance ns an actual boat ns hoas with the designs , The woikmen have now succeeded in surmount ing the worst difficulties In working the Manganese plates , several of which were ruined during the first attempts to do so. But the work JB now proceeding smoothly , though slowly. It Is expected , however , that the yacht could bo ready if desired by the end of May. The name , Golden Uod , which it is said will bo given to the America's cup de fender , is rather startling to Englishmen , most of whom never heard of the American ( lower. The Yachting World says : "No fault can be found with the name ; but all the same it is unpleasantly suggestive of a beating for Sir Thomas Llpton , " The owner of the Shamrock returns from the nivlora on March 1C , when the date of the launch of the cup challenger will bo fixed. The Dally Telegraph announces that It will shortly start a Sunday edition. It will only bo an experiment , nnd except for the Now York Herald's experiment , the Dally Tele graph will bo the first London paper to have a seven days' issue. The success of the theatrical world at present Is Charles Hawtrcy In the ' "Cuckoo" at the Avenue theater , where. In spite of the charges of Impropriety , all fashionable London Is flocking. IA The criticisms of "A Lady of Quality" as a play are generally very severe and it is not likely to succeed here. Mrs. Brown Potter's success In "Tho Musketeer * " has firmly established her In a position from which she ia now able to dictate her own terms. She will play the leading role In Henry A.

Monday. Her appearance on the professional stage Is of exceptional Interest , because she Is the first Engllsn countess to take 'to ' the boauls because othet beauty and stormy nnd romantic cm ear ami repeated fruitless efforts to obtain a divorce from her husband , the curl of Hussell , for cruelty. I found Countess llussell rehcarslns at the Gaiety theater and had a chat with lier In the intervals between her turns. She said : "I don't want to take up "Id scandals. Whatever differences I had with my husband belong to the past. But since jou ask why I made up my mind to gj on the stage , I must speak the truth. It Is because It Is necessary. Had Earl llussell made provision for mu It might have been otherwise. " The countess is accompanied by licr mother. Lady Scott , who figured so prom inently in the litigation against the earl. The latter Is the widow ot Sir Samuel Scott of Inn famous banking firm. The countess looked liandsomo. She Is slim of figure , under middle height , with nn abundance of wavy chestnut hair and a pair of fine brown eyes with n spirited expression. "It has always been nn nmbltlon of mine , " she said , "to visit the states , for I count so many charming Americans amongst my friends that I naturally want to sco their wonderful country. If I score n success in "A Runaway Girl" I hope to have an op portunity of crossing the Atlantic to play a part there. I nm waiting to sco how the experiment turns out. " "It won't bo the first tlmo you appeared on the stage ? " "In a professional capacity , yes , though I hnvo played frequently as an amateur. The critics were very kind to me when I per formed In a pantomime rehearsal as nn amateur at the Royalty theater. A fe'\ years ngo , when skirt dancing became a fashionable hobby , all my friends agreed In saying my ability as a dancer was far above the average , and as for music , I am very fond of it. That's why I preferred a musical comedy. " "But you played in pure comedy ? " "Yes , frequently , but my personal tastes always run In the direction of bright musi cal pieces which make you forget your troubles. Heaven knows life has enough sorrows rows without going to seclc them In a theater. " "How came you to play In "A Runaway Girl ? " "It was llko this. A friend of mine mentioned my name to Mr. Edwaids , ns > ono who could fill a part for -which there was a vacancy. Edwards at > kcd mo to re hearse before him. He was more than pleased , and there and then engaged me fern n thirteen weeks' tour. I llko the work Im mensely and shall get fonder of it. The only difficulty I have Is to get my memory In proper working order. Songs and dances I do all right , but the dialogues In pieces of this kind are peculiarly difficult to remem ber. If'by hard work I overcome these difficulties , I shall win and take up the theatrical profession seriously. " "And if you fall ? " She shrugged her shoulders and said : "I only want to bo Judged fairly , and feel sure ot success In that event.

Director Merrlnm leaves for Min nesota this afternoon , leaving Assistant Di rector Wines In charge. On Director Mer- rlam's return Dr. Wines will go homo to settle his private affairs. In the meantime there will bo no consideration of appoint ments and It will be nt least thirty days before another selection of u staff olllccr Is | mndu , with the probable exception of Prof. Henry Gannett of this city ns geographer. This is in accordance with a decision of the director today that In his absence there must bo no promises of ofllco nor assur ances nor encouragement for any given. Several of the officials selected Thursday night have qualified and tlio active pre liminary work will begin nt once. The statement of policy follows ; As to prospective appointments to ofllce , the services of no moiu Btalf officers can bo utilized nt present und them will bo no others selected within thlily da > s.

While the impression has gone abro.nl that the census Is to bo a refuge for Incom- petcncy , the truth and the actual facts a.-e that all applicants will be aubjected to ex amination before appuititmciit , which will bo us rigid ns the examination before the civil service commission. No political In- lluenco will be sufficient to jvut an emplojo on the census pay rolls of whoso competency to do the woik to bo assigned him the director is not satisfied In advance. And , fin thei more , If any emploje Is found lo be Incompetent on trial such employe will bo discharged regardless of his nr her political backing. The examination of employes will be directed , not so much for the testing of their general information and capacity as It will be to their fitness for the work to bo done , as , for example , no person who cannot write or spell satisfactorily will be appointed , nor calculators who cannot cal culate. First ot nil , after the general administra tive officers are selected , there must bo MO supervisors appointed and in their selection consultation will bo had with senators and representatives In the respective states. It may bo announced also that senators nnd leiircsentatlves who do not belong to the republican party will receive the same fair treatment and consideration along this line that Is given icpubllcnns. These supeivisors will be appointed by the president and con firmed by the senate. None of these as now contemplated are to bo recess appointments , but the list will be ready for submission to the senate at the opeiilug of the next ses sion. Print IIIK mill Ijiiiplo } rs Xt'constiry. The supervisors In tinn will appoint 10,000 enumerators to do the actual work through out the country , but the list of appoint ments of enumerators first must have the approval of the director of the census. After approval they will bo immediately furnished the necessary blanks and Instructions. This will 3 no small task. Assuming the popu lation of the United States at this time to be , in round numbers. 00,000,000 people , there must bo 100,000 sheets Issued for the population schedules nlonc. Adding to these the other schedules there will have to bo in the aggregate not leis than HOO.OOO such sheets In printed form issued. All this mass of paper will have to be manufactured and printed without delay. In counting the population every individual will be repre sented by n separate card and there will have to bo manufactured and printed not less than 100,000,000 of these cards. The probability Is that a system of ma chine calculating which admits of counting facts in combination nnd which worked so well in the last censm will bo adopted for that of 1900. The olliro will have to select from the various devices the ono most sat isfactory and a sufficient number to do the woik must then bo manufactured. The work will bo pushed with all possible speed con sistent with accuracy , and every ctfort made to avoid dragging the work along unneces sarily. Taken nil in all , the complete number of appointments that will bo made in the course of the census will bo over 4.,000.
