Forty-Oae Assistant Microscop
Washington, April 20. Investiga
tion into the working of the several re
ciprocal trade arrangements entered
into by the United States with the
Central and South American countries
and with Spain, for Cuba and Porto
Rice, under the provisions of the Mo
Klnley act, which Secretary Greahum
instituted immediately upon assuming
the duties of his ofllce, it is reported,
led to tbe determination by President
Cleveland to terminate the arrange
ments wltb Brazil and with Spain for
Cuba and Porto Rice. Inquiry at the
state department develops the fact that
tbe arrangements have not yet been
terminated, and it cannot be ascer
tained that tho reported action on the
part of the administration is to aban
don reciprocity. On t':e contrary, tbe
result of tbe Inquiries tenas to prove If
any such action has been, or will be
taken with regard to Brazil and Spain,
it will be due to special and local
causes. Complaints are said to baye
been received from persons doing busi
ness wltb Cuba and Porto Rice that tbe
local officials of those islands do not
observe tbe requirements of the recip
rocal prohibitive duty upon articles en
titled to admission free of duty under

It Js stated that Warner Miller will re
sign as president and that Smith H.
M. Weed, of Plattsburg, N. Y., will suc
ceed him. Tbe morning papers Bay
tbere is opposition to Miller from tbe
English investors. It Is has been said
that tho English investors are particu
larly Interested in discovering Cleve
land's opinion on the subject of the
completion of the canal. It is impera
tive that there should bo a change in
tbe control and a substitution for Miller
of a representative who can treat with
the present administration. It is stated
the English investors are desirous of
completing tbe canal through tbe aid
of a Joint subsidy from tbe British and
tbe American governments. Tbey es
timate that it will require $05,000,000
and say England will guarantee Hb
share. Tbe plan Is to Insure a divi
dend of 8 per cent for seven years and
guarantee tba repayment of tbe sub
sidy In ten years.
Tbe ninth annual report of the civil
service commission has been issued.
Tbe commissioners urge tbe classified

propriately be applied. Tbey earnestly
desire that Bomo such bill as that In
troduced in tbe last congress to take
tbe fourth class postmasters out of poli
tics may become a law.
Tbe report shows a very surprising
growth in tbe number of employes com
pared with tbe growth ot population.
Tbe percentage of growth of publio ser
vice in ten years is nearly double tnat
of tbe population. In 1883 about 11 per
cent, of tbe publio service was removed
from party politics, and in 1803 about
21 per cent. Tbe whole number of
places subject to competitive examina
tion under tbe rules is now 42,028.

A Duchess in Trouble.
London, April 20. The story given
out that tbe Dowager Duchess of Sutb
erland.wbo was sentenced to six weeks'
lmntlsonment in the Holloway Jail for
contempt of court, was driven to prison
and lookea up, is universally pnniea
and believed to have transpired. To
day, however, tbe report Is shown to be
erroneous. After tbe imposition of tbe
sentence, the dowager obtained from
Justice Jueno an order permitting her
to go to a village near Windsor, wun
tbe understanding that she would sur
render herself to tbe authorities today,
It is now announced that the dowager
duchess was taken suddenly 111 at 4
o'clock in tbe morning. Later the doc
tors sent a certificate to the authorities
to tbe effect that the ducbers was too
ill to surrender to undergo tbe sentence
of imprisonment imposed by Justice
Juene. A section of tbe press is trying
