Havana. Sept. 22.—High American officials, while expressing themselves as satisfied with the orderly character of the recent election of delegates to the constitutioual convention, are disap pointed to find a majority represent anti-American ami revolutionary ele ments. Secretary Lacoste, a defeated Nationalist candidate in Santiago province, discussing the general sitca ation, says: "Such men as Juan Gaalberto Gomez, Salvador Cisneros y Betencourt, Miguel Sanguiily, Bravo Correso, Miro Arg«n ter and Dr. Silva will prove turbulent factors in the convention. It is evident that a revolutionary majority has been elected. These men will sway their weaker colleagues to actions which will result in an unsatisfactory and proba bly threatening conflict." A wealthy Cuban, a member of the Conservative party, said: "The province of Santiago has elected a rabble. The Cubans apparently do not realize that the United State* in tervened to rid them of oppression for, if such men as have been chos-.-n to the convention there should ever hold the reins of Cuban power, the island will feel an oppression equal to that of the Spanish regime."

I., talktd of the Hobson interview, say ing: "I hardly think the young man meant to say anything unkind and per haps did not say it at all. Tiie vessels he referred to were the Isla de Cuba, Isla de Luzon and Don Juan de Aus tria. They were the least injured of the 10 or 12 ships sunk at Manila. Na val Constructor Caper, a very able man, was with me and he and divers and ex perts from Hong Koug made an exam ination of all the Spanish ships and de cided that these three were worth sav ing. Three uut of a dozen. They were raised and temporary repairs were made at Cavite. The vessels proceeded under their own steam to Hong Kong and had been there ior some time un dergoing repairs before Mr. Hobson saw them. As a matter of fact I never claimed that we sunk the ships. I reported that we destroyed them. I did see with my own eyes an 8-inch shell strike the stern of the Heina Christian, and that destroyed her. "I hardly think it worth your while to pay much attention to this. You know it is human nature to depreciate what others have done, and Mr. Hob son may not have been quoted correctly or in full."

A Rag el ligM For woman's guidance is found in the fact that Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip tion cures female weakness and the dis eases of the delicate womanly organs which darken the lives of so many wom en with suffering and sorrow. That ray of light lias penetrated many darkened chambers where women moaned in mis ery, and has guided them out to health and happiness. Favorite Prescription is not a tonic, not a palliative, but a pos itive cure for the diseases which are peculiar to women. It gives vigor and vitality. It banishes nervousness, head ache, and all the aches which come from a diseased condition of the womanly organs. A temperance medicine, it con tains neither alcohol nor narcotics.
