( Jeneral Gomez Im * decided lo proceed with the pinna agreed upnn for distributing the $1,000,000 to Cuban troops on disbanding , ns though the mili tary nasombly < 1I < 1 not exist. Ho conferred for two bourn toilny with floncral lirooko ns to details. General Iirooko asked Washington several days ago whether In case ho dissolved the assembly his notion would * oo approved. The cabled reply authorized him to dissolve that body If. In his judgment , such an acl was ncccs- wiry. Ho hopes the assembly will soon ccnso of Us own accord to hold Its sessions , hut should sessions disquieting to the pub- lie mind continue , ho will Intervene. Havana Is much more quiet today and lem excitement Is noticeable This Is partly duo to the fact that the assembly held no meetings. Humors are current that Its self- dlssolutlon 14 a matter of the early futuio. At n mooting this morning the Cuban gen erals , Hlaz , Mobontt , Nodarso , 1'craza , and other * decided to Join with General Pedro Iletnncourt , commander of the Cuban troops In Mntan/as , In n public declaration of their position. Will StllC llll flOlllrr. I.i Discussion understands that they will slilo with General Oomc/ The papers con- tlnuo to print letters and telegrams from all points declaring adherence to the veteran patriot's cnusc. There are numerous fresh calls today for the icslRiiatlon of CIUI Governor Mora and Chief of 1'ollco Mcnocal because of their attitudes , the result of misunderstanding or otherwise , toward Sunday's parade In honor of General Gomez , and the names of their successors are already suggested. The United States military authorities publish this statement "Wo are officially authorized to say that the president of the United Statcfi will not rocognbo any obligation Incurred by the body known as the Cuban assembly , and that all ropoits to the contrary are absolutely untrue. " This Is perhaps duo to a story published In HI Hecontrado to , the effect that n rep- rcHontutlvo of an American syndicate , In cluding Senator Hanna , Is now hero with a view of making n loan to the assembly. There have been six resignations from ttio assembly elnco Sunday Generals and Se- uores Cespcdcs , Montengudo , Munez , Lolra , Mol.x and Tainayo. Another Di-nioiiNlrilllon for CoinrT. This afternoon's demonstration in favor of Gomez , inwhich nil the patriotic clubs ns well as many women and children took pirt , was better organized than that of Monday , though not so spontaneous. Sov - cral thousand people paraded to General Gomez's residence. He made his appear ance nnd addressed them and the proces sion' did not return until after nightfall. Archbishop Chapelle , the npostollc dele gate to the West Indies , discussed wltti General Mrooko today the situation of tbe Ilomnu Catholic church In Cuba. He ns s nothing except that the church be allowed to retain Its property , Jurisdiction and rights as a corporation under the Spanish law. To this General Ilrooke scea no ob jection , though there are some titles In dis pute that may hn\e to come before the courts. Ttio church will continue to con trol the cemeteries and In cases where thcso have been taken Into the municipal- , itlos the latter will bo ordered to ghe them back. Tbo archbishop realizes that a cer tain nmoimt of distrust Is felt regarding the church In Cuba and ho may suggest to Homo bomo plan to "Cubanlzo" the church , gradually recruiting the hierarchy from the Cubans themselves and giving the local Spanish element less authority. The First Texas nnd Second Louisiana regiments will go north as soon ns trans portation can bo secured , which will prob ably bo next week. Duel Uot-N .Yot Mnlorlallrc. It is sild on good authority that the seconds ends of General Alejandrao Rodriguez , chief of staff of General Gomez , nnd Colonel Itaoul Arnngo , a mounted Inspector of po- Ileu. who was called u coward by Rodriguez on Monday for clubbing a woman while dis persing a portion of the parade In Itelas- coaln street , nnanged a duel between the two principals , to bo fought with pistols today , but the military assembly sent a notification to General Rodriguez nnd Colonel nel Aiango last night forbidding the duel , which was consequently declared off. A number of newspaper sellers gathered this morning nt the olllco of a Havana paper which had not criticised the action of the military assembly on Saturday In terse terms sufficiently strong to suit the people , and they requested tint todaj's Issue con tain an article showing that the paper B hi oil with the people ; also notifying the manage ment that the newspaper sellers would re fuse to sell this paper It the request was not complied with.

COSTLY FOE OF THE FARMER Destniotivo Work of the Hessian Fly in the Grain Fields of the Country , ITS METHODS OFFICIALLY INVESTIGATED HrftiiltN of nil Kxlemtcil Study of ( lie 1'cnl , lionIt Opornlfn mill .Menu * of Umtrnctlnn I'lrc n .Snfe Cure. WASHINGTON , March in. ( Corrcipond- enco of The IJee. ) An Insect that Is able to do a million dollars' worth of damage to the farmers of the United States In a single year may well bo regarded ns one of the most dangerous and destructive or the many foes against which the agri culturists of tills country are compelled to fight for a living. This Is the record or tliu noted Hessian lly , which Is second to the famous chinch bug In the destruction of crops throughout more than one-half ot the grain-growing districts of the United States and its ravages in the wheat fields In other countries have long been known nnd experienced. Hence the Department or Agriculture lias for some time past made this subject a serious study and will soon Issue a bulletin , giving an Important treaties that will bo much sought for by the tillers of the soil. At present the Hessian fly has n very wide distribution throughout the grain- growing region of Uuropo and America. There Is evidence of It having existed from prehistoric time In the countries of soutti- orn Kuropo adjacent to the Mediterranean sea and was introduced Into this country near Now York City , on Long Island , by Hessian soldiers during the war of tlio revolution In 1776 and 1777. The pest In fested tlie stiaw used for the soldiers' bed ding and soon spread from their camps. Observations showed that a spread from that section into the adjacent territory was approximated at the rate of twenty miles per year. The fapts concerning Its distribution throughout the United States arc of great importance In connection with the wheat Industry , as each year of Its spread added continual and greater losses. From Uic time of Its introduction Its distribution fol lowed the expansion of the wheat districts associated with the development and set tlement of the Mississippi valley. Us east ward spread &ccms to liavo placed Its c\- trcmo limit In Maine , at Dangor. South ward It has gone as far as tha northern part of South Carolina and In Its extreme southern limit In Texas It reaches nearly to the Gulf. Westward it occurs through out a good pcttlon of Kansas , the eastern part of Nebraska , and northward , accord ing to Webster , the noted entomologist , It has bccu fouud in North Dakota and Min nesota. On the Pacific coast it has rav aged the wheat crops of California nnd Oregon gen to some extent in late years. Scien tists believe the dispersal of this insect , pest In the wheat-growing districts o ; Idaho , Washington and other points , where wheat culture Is carried on In isolated dis tricts , will bo fortified against by reason of the extended ranges of mountains or stretches of arid land. MulcliiNT lift 1'reseneo Known. The only way In which the presence or the pest is recognized Is by its charac teristic breaking down of the wheat after the plant has grown to some conslderabio height. In feeding upon It the fly punc tures the blades and the stem or reed of the plant at its base , which causes It to break and die. During the late fall tne fly deposits its eggs upon the stubble wTicat , on grasses and upon the ground. The larva , having wonderful vitality In extreme cold sections , lies until the middle of April or first of May , when It hatches the spring brood. It Is this brood that plays havoo with the spring wheat , as they mature \ery soon after hatching. This brood lays Its eggs on the stalk and by the tlmo the win ter wheat is reaching maturity they ha\e transferred their operations to it. Trie Hessian fly presents arlatlons , not only sn number of broods , from one to possibly flvo or six , depending upon latitude , but by re tardation under conditions peculiar to cncn year. It has long been known that this pest flourished best when the chinch bug flourishes least , that Is , the wet weather favors it. Moisture favors the well-being Of the larva stage and drought docs It no Injury. Dcsldes doing vast damage to the wheat crops each jear the Hessian fly prejs upon crops of rye , barley and various varieties ot grasses. It has been noticed only during the last two years that this pest feeds on grasses nnd Its attacks 'ha\o ' been confined exclusively to California , where much ha\oc was played. Prof. Webster says the Hes sian fly need bo no longer a source of loss under a proper system of agriculture. The best preparation of the farmer , however , to contend with the Insect Involves for him a thorough Knowledge of the condi tions favoring or obatructlng the action of the Insect and to this end ho should ho particularly familiar with the conditions of acceleration or retardation of de velopment as affecting the time of appear ance of the various broods , McitHiire of IlcNtriivtUin. In harvesting the grain In July and Au gust It Is recommended by the government that It bo cut quite high and the Infested stubble fired , ns n measure to destroy the puparla before It hns reached Its matured state. Along with the burning of stubble the chaff and screenings after threshing should likewise bo destroyed. In vet weather , when the burning of stubble Is Impracticable , then It should bo plowed un der and the field rolled. Hy turning and compacting the eartfi In this manner the Issuing of flies , which may develop from the puparla In the earth , Is prevented. Vol unteer whjat at this tlmo should bo also plowed under , as it furnishes food for the Insect when all other sources of food are exhausted , In the winter wheat rcglors , when early sowing Is piacttcal and the crop shows evidences ot being Infested , It should l > o plowed under at once and another crop put In. Late sowing of fall wheat has been one of the principal resources against Hes sian Hies and the Investigations of the leadIng - Ing entomologists show that they agree in a strong recommendation of this policy. Webster says "If farmers In the extreme northern part of Indiana and In southern Michigan can sow their wheat with safety about the middle ot September and these In the southern part nt Indiana delay son Ing until after the ilrst of October , there will be a retardation of the fly's fall brood. This may be used to od\antago throughout the Intervening territory. Starting In southern Michigan about the middle of Sep tember and paiilng 4 degress south of the vicinity of Kvansvllle , Ind , the same condition of the Hessian fly Is expected during the first week of October. Taking the 'latitudes mentioned as a guide , the farmers of the winter v hcat belt through Illinois , Missouri , southern Iowa , Nebraska nnd Kansas can determine pretty accurately as to the proper tlmo for seeding. Another recommendation Is the selection of resistant varieties of wheat , which are claimed to bo "fly proof. " The varieties pos sessing these qualities are such as have coarse and siliceous stems , that are not easily penetrated by the pest. Tbo under bill variety has been considered a favorite for nearly a century. The Mediterranean wheat baa been held In high repute In the UulUd States , as also the Ked Cap and Hed May. L. W. THAVIS.
