The Hist move has been made by the army. H will piobably be supported b ) many Cubans. The army , which Is really represented , although many dispute his authority , by General Gomez , Is particularly bitter against Governor Brooke and his policy.

Act Alarm at WiiMliliiKloii. WASHINGTON , May K. . - General Brooke has not reported to the War department any serious situation In Cuba , and It IH not believed at the. department that any alarm need be fell regarding the condition of af fairs. No advice Is given General Brooke , as it has been the policy of the president to clothe the ofilcers in command In the Islands with plenaiy powers to deal with situations as they arise , and hold such offi cers responsible The confidence of the War department In General Brooke was strength ened by the visit cf Secretary Alger to Cuba. What has been done and what Is going for ward Deemed to Secretary Alger to be for the best Interests of all the people of the Island. It Is said to bo the policy of General Urooko to deal mildly -with the Cubans and to avoid , as far as possible , any action which will tend to Inltato them , but that ho will bo llriu when It is necessary nnd the dls- tuibcrs will bo made to understand that no overt iicltt will be permitted. ' Communications that General Brooke has made to the War depot tment regarding the situation are not given to the public , but the officials understand that the souice of the present tiouble is that the "generals" ot the Cuban army mo disappointed because thuy nro not likely to icnllzo as much out of the money appropriated for the army a * tboy think they should. These "generals" all believed that they would secure u pro portion of the mono } equal to their rank und their own estimate nt tludr servlccu. The whole trouble regarding the pa ) meat of the mone ) and the delay may be traced ' 1 directly to these officers who , as members | | of the aEscmbl ) or as supporters of Como/ , luvo constantly raised obstacles In the way of a peaceful disaimamont of thn Cubans and the settlement of the allalis ot the inland.

( Special. ) Cu pid scored another victory at Ciaton ) es- lerday in the marriage of Jerome n. Selllck of 1559 Cook avenuea bhoo talesman , to Miss Claru Vlctoila Harrington , the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Harrington of 2120 Waverly Place. The couple drove out to Clayton yesterday afternoon without noticing any of their rel atives or friends except Warren McClelland nnd Mrs. Sam Holfman , who accompanied them. The trip to the county sent was made In a closed carriage , without ostentation or display , with a view of escaping attention. They hoped to kcop their wedding secret for a few days , at least , nnd spring it on their relatives and friends as a , surprise , and were very much chagilncd when they founil that the publication of their marriage could not bo avoided. Another reason for secrecy Is paid to bo the fact that the brlclo has figured In severnl other romantic love affairs which got into the papers. Rev tj McCoiinell , pastor of the Metho dist church nt Clajton , tied the nuptial knot In the parlors of the parsonage , and they returned to the city to take a train for Hosklns , Neb. , Mr. Selllck's former home , on their -wedding tour. Mrs , Harrington , the bride's mother , was at homo when a reporter called at "l.'O Waveily PInco last evening , and was very much BUI prised when told that her daughter had been married at Clayton. She knew that the ) oung people weie engaged , but It had been understood thai they would not bo married until next fall , and was at u IOPH to know why her daughter had chosen that method of surprise , unless it was sim ply to batlbfy her own love of romance , as ' 'hero was not the slightest parental obstacle ) to the match. After n brief honomoon the bridal couple will return to St. Louis to reside. SCrll.c In I.iiHliiK CJromiil , P1TTSBURG , Kan. , May 10.

SWAY OF 1 HE STANDARD OIL Attorney General Monnelt Describes Opsrations of Great Trust.

Attorney General Frank S. Monnett of Ohio was before the ln dustrlnl commission today as a witness in the trust Investigation. HI * tcfitlmotiy re lated almost cxclushrly to the Standard Oil trust , against which he has been proceeding In his olllclal capacity In Ohio. After de tailing the particulars of the suits against the Standard company brought on behalf of the state of Ohio , Mr. Monnelt said the com- panics comprising the trust were CM distrib uted as to control all the operations pertain ing to the production , transpoitatlon , refin ing and delhcry ot oil In Ohio , Including even lie cwn telegraph custom Mr. Monnett complained of discrimination In telegraph and railroad rates In favor of the Standard company tank lines sajlng that In the latter it wns equal to 400 per cent against the ordinary cltl/cn. Mr. Monnett gave the nguros showing that the capitalisation of the twenty companies comprising the trust amounted In the aggre gate to $102,233.000. and the valuation $121- 631,000. He said the trust could niako Its dividends whatever It desired , as It con- ti oiled completely the retail pi IPO of oil. Mr. Monnett told of the distribution of the stock of the trust , saying that the trustees hold 160,280 of the 700,000 oharoa , and that John D. Rockefeller , ns chairman of the trustees , hold a majority ot the stock thus distributed , gl\lng him the balance of power , making practically a one-man power. Mr. Monnett said the original Milue of the plant of the trust waa $97.230.000 , but this llguro should now bo multiplied by ( He. Mr. Monnett Insisted that the way to control the trusts waa to control the transporta tion companies which , ho thought , the courts could do , and If the courts could not do this the chartero of the roads should be taken from them. The attorney general of New Jersey could secure action on this discrimination within slxt ) days If ho would take it In hand , the witness said. Speaking of the earnings of the oil trust , Mr. Monnett estimated that the gross re ceipts were $120,000,000 a jcai on the Ohio product alone , and ho said that all wns profit over 4 cents a gallon on refined oil. Ho placed the value of the earnings of the company per year as greater than the value of all the farm products of the state. Secret AKI-III.M at Work. At the afternoon session of the commis sion Mr. Monnett said In response to a ques tion fiom Commissioner Kennedy that he did not wish to enter upon a discussion of the charge that the Standard Oil company had been guilty of attempts at brlbeiy to prevent judicial investigation , as that mat ter was at present under Investigation by the Ohio supreme couit. These proceedings doubtless would ibrlng out all the facts and later ho would supply the data to the com mission. He could , however , testify to the fact that the company had secured the serv ice of railroad agents all over the countiy to report upon the movements of their ri vals and he knew of ono Instance In which the clerk of a rival concern had been em ployed to supply 'the details of his cm- plojer's opcVatlons to the Staiftard company. Also the-company had itfc "huz/ards" every where. They were appointed to follow the wagons of rivals hml secure data upon which the company vvdu'ld 'operate. When rivals were driven tiUt'c } a field by reducing rates the prices Immediately went up. Mr. Monnett said he understood that the Standard company controlled from 80 to 07 per cent of the crude oil product , but as the company controlled the means of trans portation it Was not necessary that It should take the oil out ot the lock. The company was thus Independent of well ownership. Ho did not agree with the statement that the Standard company was entitled to ciedit for the reduction of the prices of oil , be- llovlng this reduction to bu due entirely to other agencies. Referring to the government controlling the transportation agencies , as the avail able remedy ot the evils ot which he com plained , Mr. Monnett said that no course could bo too severe , If nothing less would produce the desired icsult. The states had the remedy of declaring the annulment of their charters and this should bo resortol to If they failed to treat all equally fair. In conclusion Mr Monnett said that suits had been begun In the Ohio courls against the tobacco and tin plato trusts and also against the Central TrallSc association. There will bo no more witnesses before the commission until next Friday.
