The Cologne Ga zette,dlscusslng President Cleveland's message to the United States con gress says: "President Cleveland has not allowed himself to he carried away by the prevailing opinion or the Americans. What lie suggests Is per fectly correct and compatible with the honor of Spain.

The Globe says of the message: "Monroeism is thrusting Itself for ward In the usual American fashion," and doubts if McKinlcy will be grate ful to his predlccssors for bequeath ing to him the task of bullying Spain. St. James' Gazette says: "The con dition of Cuba undoubtedly gives the United States the right to call on Spain to force iter authority speedily or acknowledge her inability to sup press the anarchy which has deprived her of iter right to be considered as governing the Island.

It is rumored that the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern railwys have made a $25 rate for settlers, and members of their families, from St. Paul to the Pacific coast points. This is equivalent to a reduction of one-half of the current first-class rate. This is considered an Important announcement for both ends of the lines. The officers of the local immigration association haye been working a year to secure such a rate.

Johnson & son 120 STATE STREET. . Havana, Dec. 9. It Is stated by tlie Spanish authorities that Antonio Macco, the leader has been killed in Havauna province, arter having ef fected a passage of the western tro cha near Mariel, at Its -northern ex tremity. With the Cuban leader died Francisco Gomez, a son of Max imo .Gomez, who accompanied the mulatto gencal on his passage of tha trocha. The mo3t explicit details otl finding the corpse of the fallen leader of the Cubans and of tho facts relied upon for the identification arc at hand through the report of the Span ish commander, Major Cirujada, who contested the passage of the trocha unsuccessfully on December 4th (last Friday)wlth Maceoand who sustained another conflict with the forces of the Insurgent leader. It was In a rccon noisance, after the latter engagement that found the two corpses, not sepa rated In death, which they Identified as those of Antonio Maceo and Fran cisco Gomez. Tho authorities now permit the pub lication of Major Uirujada's report of the engagement with Macco on De cember 4th when he forced the trooha and which. sas a fearful combat, which is the first official admission that Maceo brought with him across the trocha a considerably equipped following and fought a hot engage ment to effect his passage. After the Cubans had passed into Havana prov ince the Spanish commander effected a fresh concentration in that province and awaited the arrival of Maceo. Ho had received confidential informa tion of the proposed movements of the Cubans and arranged his forces ac cordingly. He had in addition received a detailed dccrlptlon cf the horse Maceo was to ride as well as of Its caparlsoas. The expected battle occurred. After the fight the Spanish troops made a reconnoissance of the ground previ ously held by the Cubans. Here were found the two corpses lying together and, indeed, almost-locked in the em brace of death. Ono was that of (a mulatto,a stout man with gray,crisply curling hair, and tho other that of a slender dark haired youth. Both men were dressed In white linen duck suits. When the linen was removed from tho corpse of the elder of tho two It was found to have underneath It a fine undershirt with the inItaIs"A. M." upon It. A pair of black silk socks on his body contained the same initals, worked In red ink. There was a gold ring on the finger containing on tho inner rim the engraved Inscription "Antonio Y. Marina." Afrevolver with an ivory handle and marked, together with a small gold-mounted telescope, were also found on the body. The head of the young man's body was resting upon the body of the first. There was found on it a sliver watch, an ammunition bag and several hand kerchiefs bearing the inlials "F. G." Havana, Dec. 9. There was much excitement here when it became known that Maceo had crossed the military line with, it is uuder stood, a strong force of iusurgents, especially when coupled with fighting between tho Spanish troops and in surgents close to the city. It seems evident that tho Insurgents' com mander has not only cleverly turned the flank of Captain General Weyler, but has succeeded in getting on his rear and crossing the famous military line near the port which lias Decn used as a base of supplies for tho Spanish troops in Pinar del Rio. Tho , Importance of this movement cannot be exaggerated. The exact whereabouts of Weyler Is not known but I16 is believed to be hunting for Maceo in the mountains T"7 In the extreme eastern part of Pinar del Rio, while the insurgent chief has seemingly' ' doubled on his tracks, ttirncd the. flunk of tho Spanish gen oral ink passed fn his rear In. the direction of this city, crossing -tfie rullRafy line it will and possibly be ing of this time In the vicinity of the capital of Cuba. If Maximo Gomes hasclrricd out the plan attributed to him, that of.poishlng westward to the support of Maceo, a junction of tho two main boxjles of the Insurgent forces may boexpectcd shortly. Nothing appears to be known of the strength of theflnsurgent forces with Antonio Macol 'In this province. Im- meaiaieiy events may occur wituin u short time. There Is no doubt that CONGRESS tJourJSills Have Been Passed, Hftuso of Representatives Keeps 'MJp'Jts Record for Work. the Insurgents bcrs about, tlie twenty to th 1 Spanish trooDS, insurgents fort liavc Increased in num capital. Tho bands of rty bandits, met by havo now swollen tho sot 20,000 to 40,000. It seems to be adopted and belloved that Maceo wjfl strike before Weyler can hurry back from Pinar del Rio. It Is currcntly'rumored that Weyler has been wounded. 1 RASKA Silver BY A- Bond Treasurer's 'I TRUST COMPANY. A State Official Who Insists on See- g Cash. LiNCOLN,NeO.,Dec. 9. State Treasurer-elect Mcsdrve, will probably give bond through u guaranty bond com pany. Owing Ito his determination, announced during thocampaign,to re quire the outgoing treasurer to count out the state funds In cash,and his ex pressed Intention of accounting to the itato for interest on state funds, the impression becamo quite general that the banks had entered into an agree ment that they would not go upon his bond. Whether that be true or not, it is stated by Populists that Mr. Me serve will probably not ask them to become his bondsmen, but will offer to furnish a well known guaranty bond company as his security. It is understood that this company will demand something like $4,500 to furnish a bond of the magnitude of that required by tho the state of Its treasurer. This would entail an ex penditure larger than the salary, and it Is claimed that the legislature will come to tho treasurer's relief and ap propriate funds with which to meet this expense. It will bo surged that the state can well afford to do this, if the treasurer shall hereafter pay into the treasury the Interest received on deposits of state funds. It Is also claimed that these guar anty bond companies are better secur ity than tho ordinary list of individ uals and that Republicans are not in a position to object for tho reason that one of tho Republican county officials here has given that variety of bond and one of tho Republican state senators from this county two years ago introduced a measure re quiring public officers to give bond through guaranty companlej. Created a Sensation, Kansas City, Dec. 9. Mrs Helen Dicker son Harford, of Oregon, national organizer of the W. C. T. U., created a sensation while filling the pulpit of the Dundee M. E. ehureh, in this city, by denouncing, in un. measured terms, the acceptance by the city of a memorial to be erected in the center of the city to the memory of Fred Ilsirn, the brewer, lately deceased, The Ifeiro brothers, who succeded their father in busiaess, had drawn plans for an imposint; structure to be erscted to the deceased's memory, and subsequently tendered it to the city officials. In the course of her sermon, Mrs, Harford arraigned the city fathers for their action, alluded to the memorial as a "monument of infamy" and ap pealed to her congregation to prevent its erection. OA0TOHXA. sisdti sifutut a WA8HINOTON, Dec. 0. The house, without wasting time, proceeded to business and beforo tho session closed had passed three bills of considerable Importance, and the lirstof the reg ular supply bills that .for pensions. Threo of tlib bill related to postal matter. One provided for the use of private mulling cjrds. of the same gcueral slzo and character as tho pres ent postal cardf), when one-cent stumps are affixed. Another provided for a limited indemnity of $10 for the low of registered mall matter, and tho third provided for a private carrier servico In towns and villages where no free delivery exists.

IN THE SENATK. When a letter from tho secretary of the treasury wns read answering the scnuto Inquiry as to the .number of aliens In tho department of tho treas ury, Galllnger (N. n.,) remarked that ho would be glad to observe that for eigners whoso services had been con spicuous in tho department had scon fit as a result of tho inquiry to tako out naturalization papers. Many papers were presented from manufacturing bodies urging tho passago of the Dinglcy bill. Cullotn (111.) gavo notlco that on Thursday next he would address the senate on the Cuban question. IN THE HOUSE. The attendance of members was very largo in tho houso today, but tho galleries wero almost deserted. After the journal had been read there was a hurried consultation between Dingley and other Republican leaders, as a re sult of which It was decided to pro ceed with tho regular order of tho call of tho committee. Loud called up the bill to provide a limited indemnity for the loss of reg istered mall matter. It provides an indemnity not to exceed $10 for any one registered letter, but not to ex ceed the actual valuo of the letter. This bill was also approved by tho postoffice department. Loud said that on tho basis of last year's statis tics, tho government should havo ft rcvenuo of $900,000, with a liability of $50,000. There was a criticism of the bill on the ground that it trespassed on the rights of express companies, but it passed, 70 to 13. Loud called up tho bill to authorizs the collection and delivery of mall in towns and villages where no letter carrier service exists by the employ ment, under mutual arrangement be tween citizens of any person to per form the service at a cost not exceed ing one cent for each letter or pack age at thejexpenseof the beneficiaries. The bill was opposed by. Bingham of Pennsylvania and-Loud of California and supported by Smith of Illinois and Plckler of South Dakato. The bill was passed, 100 to 13.

Stone briefly explained that the bill carried $141,203,980, about $76,000 less than tho bill for tho current year. The committee ho said, did not feel warranted in making a reduction in the estimates for pen Ions, but did reduce the amount for attending sur geons $50,000, and the amount for clerk hire at tho various agen cies $20,000. The latter reduction was roado possible by the system of pay ment by check Inaugurated this year. There was. he said, no attempt at legislation in the bill. When the bill was taken up under the five minute rule, Connelly, of Il linois, offered an amendment to the provision requiring examing surgeons to state specifically tho rating the ap plicant for pension is entitled to, in their Judgment, so as to make the rating) fixed by the examining board binding In tho. pension ofWca if any pension sbonld bo allowed.
