Judicial Decisions Now
Pending:.
One Case at Fort Robinson,
Neb., and Another at
Plattsburg, N. Y.
Army Officers Are Loud in
Their Praise of the
institution.
WASHINGTON, April The closing
of the post exchange at Fort Robinson,
Neb., is, it is learned, only temiorary
and pending a decision by the judicial
officers of the war department, and per
haps by the attorney general 011 the
question involved, namely, the ry»lit of
state officials to interfere in tho mtvrnal
administration of the affairs of army
posts. The matter is giving much con
cern to army officers, for a judicial de
cision adverse to the post exchange, in
most instances, would wipe out this
institution, which the experience of
several years past has shown to be of the
Gr«*lMt Vain* In Aruijr A nilnist rntlon,
as tending to promote morality, so
briety and habits of thrift among the
enlisted men. The question has arisen
lately in the case of the post at Piatts
burg, N. Y.. and a judicial decision is
also required in that case. This dif
fers from the Fort Robinson case in
that there is lacking a specific act of
cession of jurisdiction by the State of
New York to the national government
and the issue must be decided there
upon the basis of the general act rela
tive to the administration of the affair
of the army establishment. At Fort
Robinson, the act of cession
va« definite.
8HADOWGRAPH IN COURT.
Roentgen Rayi Will (iive Ev.'denee Re
garding a Fracture.
WICHITA, Kan., AprilProbably
the first instance of a court recognizing
the Roentgen discovery as a means of
establishing a fact in evidence is that
in which the district United States
court directed a shadowgraph be taken
of the wrist of Peter Noel, who is su
ing for $10,000 damages for wrongly
Betting the fracture of his wrist. The
question of what the best evidence, is,
in a case of that kind, tame up, and all
the parties interested, as well as the
court, agreed that in the light of mod
ern science, a shadowgraph of the
wrist would be the best evidence. Con
sequently the court directed Lncien
Blake, professor of electricity in the
state university, to make the test in
court.

WASHINGTON, April 6.—An effort is
being made by Representative Mondell
of Wyoming to have the Big Horn hot
springs, on the Shoshone Indian reser
vation in Fremont county, Wy., pur
chased by the government and held as
a public reservation, as the hot
springs of Arkansas axe. Indian In
spector McLaughlin has been sent by
the interior department to negotiate
with the Indians for the cessions of the
springs and a tract 10 miles square sur
rounding them.
The Horn springs are said to pos
sess remarkable medicinal qualities and
are scientifically called sulphur saline
springs. They are near the Big Horn
river, with snow capped mountains on
either side, and empty into the river in
picturesque cascades.

ENGLISH AFTER COPPER MINES
Tfccy M'ant the Otlirr Three Quarter*
»f the Anaconda Property.
BVTTK, Mon., April ('.— Information
has been received that Hamilton Smith,
Who reported last fall upon the Ana
conda properties, and upon whose
favorable showing a one-quarter inter
est was taken by foreign capitalists
upon the basis of $30,000,000 for the
property, is again eu route for
Butte. He is expected to arrive on the
JiSJd inst. One rumor concerning his
mission is that he canes empowered to
examine the mines a second time to re
port upon the advisability of mak.ng an
offer of $40,000,000 for the remaining
three-fourths of the stock. It is not be
lieved in Butte mining circles that the
figures are large enough to secure the
property or that, in fuct, it is for sale.
GETTING AFTER SHIPPERS.
Will Attempt to Pun tali Them fur Ac
cepting Low It tea.
CHICAGO, April 0.—The interstate
commerce officials in Chicago are, it is
said, planning to make trouble for some
of the largo shippers who have Veeu
receiving cut rates from the roads. No
actual steps have been taken as yet 1-ut
the officers of the iaw ard after the
large grain and packing house ship
pers.
This will be the tirat time that an
effort has been made to get after the
shippers for taking as low rates as they
have been able to procure from the
roads. It is a fact, however, that in
the majority of causes which the inter
state commerce commiss 011 has takt n
np in this city that the shipper has
been the chief offender, its in most
cases the railroad man is not going to
offer reduced rates unless he s assured
that he must do so 111 order to get the
business.
HAWAIIAN CABLK.
Amount of the Government Sub«idy Cut
Down by the Committee,
WASHINGTON, April (5.—The Pacific
cable project was once more the sub
ject of discussion by the house commit
tee during the day. Mr. Bennett of
New York presented a substitute bill,
embodying several amendments which
had been suggested by members in
former discussions. It was the sense of
the committee that instead of the sub
sidy of $160,000 asked by the Pacific
Cable company, a New York corpora
tion, the government should not aid it
in a greater sum than $100,000 a year
for 20 years, and that government busi
ness should be done free for all time

GREAT BATTLE
Rumored at Tampa That a Big
Fight Occurred in Pinar
del Rio
In Which the Spaniards Lost
£ight Hundred Men—Sanrez
Wounded.
Most Wofnl Destitution in the
Island--No Money for
Necessaries.
TAMPA, April 6.—It is rumored here
that in the battle which occurred 011
Tuesday in Pinar del Rio, between the
forces of Maceo and Colonel Suarez,
the Spaniards lost 800 men. The in
surgent loss was also heavy. No de
tails of the battle are given. Colonel
Snarez was seriously wounded.
CONDITION OF CUBA.
Entere I«lanl at Present In a State of
Moat Woeful Destitution.
NEW YORK, April (5.—A special to
The World from Havana says the total
amount of sugar made in Cuba this
year will not exceed 130,000 tons., Tho
normal crop is about 1,000,X)» tons.
This enormous shrinkage means, it is
estimated, a money loss of $56,000,000.
The tobacco crop will be greatly
diminished. The other products of the
island—hides, mahogany and cedar—
are practically not to be had. Nothing
is being done 011 the Stock Exchange
and the Produce Exchange is lifeless.
Flour, potatoes and the commonest
necessaries of life cannot be sold on
business principles there is no money
and Havana is like a tomb. No news
papers are printed.
Regarding the Death of Gomes.
In government circles there has been
much discussion about Gomez, and
many persons in subordinate positions
have believed that the rebel chieftain
was dead. Explicit accounts |of how
Gomez was buried have been related
which the narrators believe. General
Pando, commanding in Santa Clara
province, has been blamed for allowing
Gomez to get through that province.
Gomez was in such a condition of
physical exhaustion that he was simply
endeavoring to avoid any Spanish force
and to proceed by easy stages to find a
point in Puerto Principe province
where he could rest, hoping to regain
his health. Gomez is now not less than
250 miles from Havana and has been in
communication with Jose Maceo.
SPANISH ATROCITIES.
State of Affair* to Shock tho Whole
hriatian World.
CLEVELAND, April o.—The stories
that have been told concerning the tor
tures inflicted by the Spaniards in
Cuba are confirmed by F. H. Taylor,
who has just arrived after a residence
of three years in Havana. He said:
•The worst has not been told. I have
known of prisoners being strung up by
the thumbs at Mora castle and left for
days at a time to tho mercy of the
vicious flies, which were attracted in
swarms by molasses smeared upon the
victim's face and chest. Many more
forms of torture are practiced upon the
unfortunate rebels when taken. If
they would allow some of the perse
cuted wretches in the Cuban dungeons
to testify, stories of fiendish torture
could be unearthed which would shock
the Christian world."
Kttabl nh Station* on the Cayuni.
NEW YORK, April 0.—A special to
The Herald from La Guayara, Vene
zuela, says: A British expedition has
left Georgetown, Demerrara, to estab
lish new stations on the Cayuni, west
of the Schomburgk line, and to open a
new road to the Yuruan as a protest
against Venezuela's big grant to
Aiuvr
ican capitalists in the gold country at
the mouth of the Orintx'o. This grant
also includes important navigation and
oommercial privileges.

WASHINGTON, April U.—United States
Consul Tucker, at Martinique, has dis
covered that large deposits of black
sand, averaging from 02 to 70 per cent
of iron oxide, exist on the sea shores of
that island and'of Guadaloupe. They
are conveniently located for loading
into lighters and shipping, while labor
is plentiful and cheap. In his report to
the state department upon the subject
he gives details of the concessions that
may be of interest to our iron manu
facturers.
