I! p. HE WILL BE SHOT Little Doubt as to the Fate ol the Caban General Cap tured by Spain. Weyler Said to Have Given Or ders for His Immediate CourtmartiaL Gomez May Retaliate—Cisneros Said to Have Sent an Appeal to the President. NEW YORK, April 2.—The Time* Bays: Although the fcastern trunk lines and their Western connections will continue to operate under the joint traffic agreement until compelled to cease from so doing by an adverse de cision of the United States supremo court, the railroad men, without ex ception, are preparing for a vigorous campaign with regard to a pooling law by congress. Chuuncey M. Depew, chairman of the joint traffic board of control, says that in a proper pooling law lies the only solution of existing railroad troubles. The bill introduced by Senator For aker, he remarked, was designed to enable railroad companies to make nec-, essary traffic agreements and keep out of jail. v One result of the recent conference of railroad lawyers was to represent the unanimity of sentiment in favor of legislation that will legalize pooling. The presidents of some of the trunk lines frankly avow their willingness to have the joint traffic association de clared illegal by the supreme court, be causo they believe that tho conditions thus precipitated would force congress to pass remedial measures -without de lay. Foraker Bill SatUfaetory. THE Foraker pooling bill is satisfac factory to most all of the railroad men, and the members of the interstate com merce commission as well.

MADISON, SOUTH DAKOTA FRIDAY, APRIL 2 189 anti-traffic contract clause of the Sher man anti-trust law, and gives the rail road companies the privilege of making such traffic contracts under the super vision of the interstate commerce com mission. Eastern railroad men believe that the legalization of railway pooling would have a better effect on the gen eral situation than a supreme court de cision in favor of the Joint Traffic as sociation. Even the assurance of the legality of the last named association would not help the western roads, for the reason that the first supreme court decision killed their principal traffic agreement. APPEAL FROM CISNEROS. CvtmiTrrMident Said to Ilave Sent a Let ter to MeKinley. CHICAGO, April 2.—The Inter Ocean has printed an open letter which Cis neros, president of the Cuban republic, has sent to President MeKinley. The letter, which is of great length, appeals to the president of the United States iu the "name of God and of my people"' %o extend early consideration to what is known in the United States as "the Cuban question." Cisneros then gives details of the Arrowth of the revolutionary cause throughout the island, the establish* inent of various departments of gov ernment, by which tho insurgents col lect taxes, maintain armies and carry mails, as arguments to show that a regular government exists. An im portant feature of the civil govern ment, according to President Cisneros, has been the establishment of schools and the issuing of books. In conclud ing his appeal he says "The struggle may go on for years, and Cuba may continue to fight the battle against the most fearful odds alone, but so long as there is a God to give us courage we •will cling to the banner of right and freedom, and never falter until the vic tory is won."

WASHINGTON, April 2.—It is said at the state department that no successor has been selected to take General Lee's place as consul general at Havana that he has not been cabled a leave of absence to take effect April 15, and, finally, that there has been no change in the $tatus of the consul general. It is also intimated, but not stated posi tively as above, that there is no inton tion of making any change in the con sulate general in the near future at least. General Lee may be assisted in the task of watching the investigation in the Ruiz case by John R. Day of Canton, O., provided counsel is be lieved to be essential to the develop ment of the facts, but the position of Mr. Day in such case would be purely advisory. A«k MeKinley for Information.

Foraker Bill Satisfactory to Both Railroads and Interstate Commission. NEW YORK, April 2.—A Havana special to The World says: General Rivera will probably be shot soon, as General Weyler has given orders that he be tried by a court-martial immediately. He may be put to death on Saturday, in spite of his wounds, or the Spanish may cure him and tholi 6hoot him. The certain execution of this brave, wounded prisoner of war excites indig- I nation aud disgust here. No other civ ilized nation is capable of eucli an act. i Coionel Bacallac, who tried to carry off his wounded commander on his back, although wounded himself, will I die with him. It is predicted that these executions will provoko General Gome/, to shxt all Spanish prisoners hereafter instead of releasing them. The Cubans are not disheartened at the loss of General Rivera. They eav General Roloff is in Pinar del Rio, and will soon become second in command of the whole army. Insurgent* Are Rallying. Insurgents iu great numbers are com ing from the east aud concentrating in Havana province. They have plenty of ammunition and good cavalry. The World courier from Santa Clara reports seeing one column of 1,500 well mounted, well armed insurgents pass ing west toward Matanzas. This same courier says a very large expedition has landed near Remedios, and that most of the arms are for the western provinces. General Weyler remains in Cienfue gos. He is better but still sick and is doing nothing effective. Permission asked for Mr. Marriott, a colleague of Mr. Crosby, the corre spondbnt of the Chicago Record, killed in the field, to go to secure the body and effects, has been refused by the authorities. Minister De Lome wired the request and General Lee seconded it. Mr. Marriott took General Lee's letter to the palace, but General Ahu mada refused to see him, saying that the request could not bo granted. Isismarok'a tstrtiidnjr.

THE WYOMING STORM. thm Ha« Re*n Great Low of Stock w4 Probably Komi» of Human Life. LARAMIK, Wy., April 2.—The most severe snow storm in 20 years passed over this section, doing immense damage to cattle and sheep.

Several buildings collapsed in conse quenoe of the weight of the snow, which covered their roofs. Fears are entertained for the safety of several hunting parties in this sec tion. Shoep are scattered all over the plains, and it is expected the loss will reach into the thousands.
