HAVANA , Mnrch 15. ( 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

In Mntan/as , In n public declaration of their

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
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

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
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
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
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.
