This turned Allen's atten- itotlic president and he spoke grly against the executive, uepuo- Hcan senators had no reason to fear Cleveland's opposition. "The presi dent Is with the republicans on the gold monometallism" declared Allen. "I understand helaughs and rejoices wlththoRsDubllcansoverthelrmutual victory this fall. The president of the United States is a republican and you would have to put a tag on his prin ciples and on those of the republican party to tell tlictn apart." Galllgcr pressed the question as to whether the president would slirn a bill with free silver amendments. "I do not stand near his excellency," answered Allen, "and I cannot say what he will do. Ho had a bare rem nant of a few thousand votes with him last year. 1 assume he has gone over body and soul to the Republican party." Teller said It was the duty of the incoming administration to have an extra session to formulate a bill and try to pass it. lie declared that he wanted to to see a return to prosper ity, lie believed it could only be brought about by a decent financial system, but If any other system was proposed that would stand-the test of Ionic, he would support It. He would reserve his right to decide that ques tion later. Gorman criticized the DIngleybill and said It was unjust and unequal. He congratulated the Republicans that not once during the campaign had they lowered their col ors. They stood by the declaration that their victory would mean a res toration of high duties. He accepted the result, "but,".nid he, addressing the republican side, "you have not the power to piss a monstnslty such as this, or the Incli nation to remodel. You will, in my opinion, have a majority for a protec tive measure after March 4th.

You cannot af ford tn pass it and- upturn the busi ness of the country again at the next session and, however, we won't per mit you to do it." But It remained for Sherman to formally announco that the Dlngley bill was dead. He said he could not always speak for his associates, but, In view of what had been said on the floor, he felt he could safely announce that the Dlngley bill could not be passed, and that It was useless to waste farther time on It. Senator Mitchell, of Oregon, Intro duced a bill to amend section 1754 of the Revised Statutes. That section, as passed In 1803, pro vided that persons honorable dis charged from the military or naval service by reason of disability result ing from wounds or sickness incurred in the line of duty shall be preferred for appointment to civil olllces, pro vided they arc found to possess the business capacity necessary for a proper discharge of the duties from the military or naval service without regard to reason for such discharge, provided they have served ninety days or more in the war or more In the war of the rebellion or any Indian war. Mitchell supported his bill with a brief speech on his motion. It was re ferred to the committee on civil ser vice and retrenchment. The senate committee on foreign re lations held a meeting today for con sideration of the Cuban resolutions re ferred to It. Is'o action was taken. The committee adjourned to Friday for the purpose of securing further in formation from the state department. There is a desire to ascertain exactly what was reported by Consul-General Lee. Bailey, of Texas, created a ripple of excitement In the house by asking immediate consideration of the reso lution to investigate the construction of the battle-ship Texas. Dinglcy, of Maine, thought the resolution ought to be considered by the committee on naval affairs before being acted upon; he therefore objected. The resolution wasieferred. The house then, on motion or Hull, chairman of the committee on mili tary affairs, went into a committee of the whole for consideration of the army appropriation bill. Hull ex plained the provisions of the bill, which carried $23,120,344, $775,5173 less than the current law. The only new provision was for the abandonment of the army and navy hospital at Hot Springs, Ark., and the surrender and transter or mo reservawuu to wm in terior department. Members of the house ways and means committee say the report out lining an elaborate scheme for a tariff on silver in the new bill is merely fiction. No such proposition has been considered, although it is generally understood that there will be a duty on all ores of which silver Is a by-pro-. duct. ... . , A member of the committee said : "A duty on silver would bo as use less as a duty on rainwater for the reason that no silver is imported Into tiiiupnnnt.rv. The onlv thlmr we can do for the silver miners will bo to put a duty on Mexican lead ore of which silver is a by-product. By doing this we can give protection w u aU interests and incidentally to tlie silver miners Dennis Ryan Married. Spokane. Dec. 17.

Passengers anlving here last, evening from Havana rebort that Antonio Maceo Is alive and well and Is ln the province of Matanzas. The passen gers say that all of the festivities that were going on In Havana to celebrate his death have been or dered stopped since it has become known that he Is alive. Havana, Dec. 17. Captalh-Gcnnral Weylor has presented $100 to the scout of Major Ctrujcda's column who took from the body of Antoillo Maceo articles by which the Spaniards estab lished the Identity of the corpse as being that of .the -Insurgeot. The captain-general, in replying to the message of Major Cirujeda, has as sured the latter -that: he will bo re warded for "splendid scrvlccs"-whlch he has rendered to Spain. A mulatto woman, named Franclsca Ilorrorea, will be tried by court mar tial today. She Is churged with re bellion and Incendiarism. Franclsca Is described as an Amazon and form erly belonged to Sastlllo's band of in surgents. Shrouded in Doubt. Denver, Dec. 17. A News special from Key West says: Advices from this evening by the steamer Olivette state that the alleged rln-ith .if Mnwo Is still shrouded in mystery, and a majority of the Cubans reruse to uenevc mat mo grvui. cmui ic donii Tim iwniv lint: nrit, hnenl dis covered, and contradictory statements made by the Spainlards lead the Cubans to believe Maceo Is still alive. Even the people who .live at i'unta Hriivn. where Maceo Is said to have been killed, do not credit the story. Dr. Zertuclia continues to iikiko con flicting statements, lie says now that the knife which the Spaniards have belonged toyouug Gomez, and not to Maceo. They say this proves either that Maceo is still -alive or that if he is dead, his death will not Injure the rebellion. There Is a multiplicity of theories current in regard toMaceo. One report in Havana Is that the Spanish ollicer at Cabezas, province of Matanzas, has informed the Havana authorities that Maceo passed that place recently with a largo force. Then, too, it is claimed ii.it n nitjr line Iwum rai!AlVGd In Havana from Agulrre, the insurgent leader, dated December u, in wuicu no mention Is made ol Maceo's ocatii. Wevlcr Is now In a quarrel with the marine authorities because of the charge that Maceo passed the trocha In a boat. The marine uuuiuriues dmiv tlicstorv positively, and have cabled the facts to Spain. All these contradictory statements render it difficult to believe that Maceo Is really dead.

A special to the Bee from Silver City, Idaho, says: Yesterday a report came In that com panies were being organized InOniaha or Council Bluffs, to bo forwarded to Cuba.and the entire town here caught the enthusiasm and everybody was talking Cuba. About midnight the excitement culminated in an e&gy of Captaln-General Weyler being hung In the heart of the city. More Paticulars of the Killing. Havana, via Key WestDec. 17 The following details arc gleaned by careful Investigaalon amongst thoso who took part In the affair of the kill ing of Maceo: , . ,. After crossing the trocha by the land as has been Indicated In previous dispatches to the Associated Press, Maceo and his staff. It appears, were encamped in the hills and expected the arrival of Cuban reinforcements nnrinr RrlMdlcr General Sanchez and others ordered by General Aguirre .to receive and to escort uioinui uu . chief to the East. Major C rujeda was totally Ignorant of Maceo's .pres ence In tho district, believing him to be still westof the trocha.but learning that a Spanish fort on the ban Pedro had been iireu on iuuh iuuib j -surgents, he started out on a recon nolterlng tour at the head o a de tachment of the San Quentln battal ion, accompanied by a force of local guerrillas and Captain lcral. The hitter's men were dressed In a manner very similar to that of the Insurgent troops, and they marched In the van guard of the Span sh column. BH.a,.

It is alleged that Maceo considered the trocha a good thing lor the Insurgents and that it would Indirectly be an aid In carrying out of Gomez' plan. Dr. Zertuclia says Maceo never wore the Insignia of his rank. He is also authwlty for a statement that many Spanlbh soldiers aredescrtlpg from tho trocha, owing to General Aralos1 111 treatment. Dr. Zertuclia reports that Maceo was a great reader of tho Madrid, New York and Paris newspapers, which he frequently received, and all of which were read or translated to him. Ho was a close observer of Span ish polittts and of Washington af fairs. His habits were sober, and he never smoked nor drank nor al'owcd others to do so in his presence. He was a rigid disciplinarian and always traveled with a small escort. Ho con stantly made Inspections of his mili tary oroanlzatlon. Ho was Idolized by his men, whites and blacks. Maceo opposed the annexation senti ment of other Cuban chiefs. He nlways carried $15,000 to $20,000 with him and nlways granted quick succor to needy pacltlcos. Disappearance. Astoria, Or., Dec. 17 Captain Da vies of the British ship Dalcairnle, which arrived here en the 14th In stant, has been missing since tho morning following his arrival, and there Is little doubt but that ho was drowpded. No attention was paid to tho matter but uneasiness was manifest at an earlly hour yesterday and Chief of Po lice Loghry and the deputy United States marshal began an Investiga tion. It was found that Captain Davlcs had been drinking, and was taken to a room in tlie occidental noici at 11:30 o'clock the night of the 14th. The man who escorted him saw him to his rooom, and, after coining down stairs, talked with the hotel clerk for a time, During this conversation, Captain Davlcs came down stairs and passed out. It wns learned that ho went to the residence of O. S. Wright, where lio applied for lodging, but, being Informed that the house was not a hotel, he went away.. Ho proceeded In the direction ot the Parker house, which ho was seen to pass between 3 and 4 o'clock In the morning. One of the hands on the Columblno now says that about that time ho heard some person apparently hailing tho vessel; that ho asked what was wanted, but recelyed no reply. Tho steward dr tho Empire, which lay near the Columbine, Is certain that he also heard a yolco calling out, as U hailing a vessel, and that soon after he heard n splash, as If something or somebody had fallen Into the river. On the Empire's dcckload of lumber a hat similar to that worn by Captain Davlcs was found at daylight, giving cdntirmatlon to the belief that ho is lost.
