But It remained for Sherman to

In view of what had been said on the
floor, he felt he could safely announce
that the Dlngley bill could not be

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.

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
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

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

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.

blow intended to end the war. 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
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.

there Is little doubt but that ho was
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.
