Johnson & son 120 STATE STREET, Washington. Dec.18. The sen ate passed immigration bill, known as the Lodge bill with a new section providing that exclusion shall not ap ply to persons arriving from Cuba during the continuance of the present disorder there. The strength of the bill .was greater than had been ex pected, the. final vote being 52 to 10. As passed, the bill amends the immi gration laws so as to exclude from ad missoin to the United States all per sons, oyer l(i years old, who cannot read and write the language of their native country or some other language but an admissable immigrant, over the age of 16, may bring in with him, or send for, his parent, or grand-parent, or minor children, orgrand-chlld, notwithstanding their inability to read and write. For the purpose of testing the ina bility of an immigrant to read or write as reouired bv the foreuolnt section, the Inspection olllcers shall be furnished copies of the constitu tion of the United States, printed on numbered pasteboard slips, each con, taining live lines of the constitution printed in the various langugcs of Immigrants. These slips shall be kept in boxes made for that purpose and so con structed as to conceal the slips from view, each box to contain the sllpsgf. but one language, and the Immigrant nfay dislgnate the language in which he prefers the test shall be made. Each immigrant shall be required to draw one of these slips from the box and read, and afterwards write out in full view of the immigration of Hcersrthe five lines printed thereon No immigrant, failing to read and write out the slip thus drawn by liim shall be admitted; but he shall be returned to the county whence he came, at the expense of the railroad or steamship which brought him, as now provided by law. The Cuban question, added to the bill, provides that the act shall not apply to any persons arriving in the United States from any port or place in Cuba during the continuance of the present disorders there, provided such persons have heretofore been In habitants of the island. The Immigrant measure now goes into conference, the bill passed today being a substitute for the Corliss-Mc Call bill passed by the house. On mo tion of Hale the senate today agreed that when It adjourned it would be until next Monday. THE ARMY DILL PASSCD. The house passed the third of the regular appropriation bllls(that for the sunoort of the array) and en tered upon the consideration of the legislative, executive and judicial bills. The lattor bill carries $21,009, 309 or $20,399 more than tnelawfor current year. It Is expected that this bill, and the military academy appro priation bill, will be passed before the holiday recess. The army bill as passed, makes noprovission rortno army and ay hospital at Hot Springs, Ark. o An effort was made while the sen ate was In executive session to secure reconsideration of the vote by which the senate- agreed to adjourn until Monday, in order it, Is understood,to permit of an opportunity to, pre sent a report tomorrow on uw Cameron resolution, in case one Is agreed upon by the committee. Tl.o motion was made by Senator Carter after a conference with Senator Cameron. The -friends of the reso ' lllt.tfin nnhnhnntlpflM rttit rn.iltvn tl.ti. the adjournment of the senate until Monday next might have the effect of delaying a report until after the ad journment had been decided upon. They then concluded, that, as these tactics would leave only two days be fore the holidays, their mcasurs might be crowded out until well Into January. It is stated that Secretary Olney will go before the senate committee on foreign relations today and give a great deal of confidential information relative to Cuba. It Is the expectation of all members of the committee that a vote will Ixj readied today on the Cameron resolu tion declaring for Cuban Independ- ence. Jrleiidsof the resolution have no doubt it will reetlye the approval of the majority. The intention of the majority of the members of the committee on foreign relations, who Intend to vote for the Cameron resolution, Is to report the resolution todayandshowltto remain on the senate calendar until after the hoi lkay recess. So confident are the advocates of tho Cameron resolution of success that the committee has al ready prepared a report dn the subject, so as to have It ready to present to the senate as soon as It Isiagrecd upon ALIVE, He Still Leads the Army, Maceo Is Slightly Wounded Otherwise Enjoys Good Health.

Albany, Or., Dec. 18. The boldest forgery case eyer known In this state, has come to light In this city. In July last a stranger giving the name of Henry C. Brlggs, filed with the recorder a deed from A. S. Knox, of San Jose, Cal., conveying to Brlggs a fine farm of 318 acres of land In Linn county. A few days after tins Brlggs mortgaged the farm to the Alliance Trust Co., borrowing $1,200. Ho then left the city. It now transpires that the deed was bogusj the names of Mr. and Mrs. Knox and also those of the witnesses and the notary balng forged. A suit was begun by Knox's attorneys to set aside the fraudulent deed. A Correction. Thefollowlngcom raunlcation was received from tho captain of the Albany Tornado foot ball eleven: 'Mr. Editor. In your paper you mentioned the Cyclones' visit to Al bany. You made a statement which is calculated to mislead. You used this expression. "The only incident which marred the pleasure of the trip and which apparently could not be avoided was the theft of the Salem boy's belongings while the game was In progress.. Although we do not deny that something of this kind un fortunately occurred yet we together with the Salem boys, will say that nothing dishonorable was done by an Albany boy. The Albany tioys wero also losers. If necessary the names of Captain and members of the Cyclone team together with that of the referee from Salem can be obtained to this statement. We are not trying to throw mud. We merely want things to be understood. The Salem boys play u good clean game; they arc worthy of Imitation in this respect." Key West, Fla,, Dec. 18. Passen gers from Cuba -report that General Pratt wired General Weylcr from tho province of Matanzas that he had an engagement with Antonio Macco's forces'ed by Maceo himself, and upon receipt of the telegram festivities In progress In Havana to celebrate the death of Maceo were ordered sus pended. The passengers further stated that a newspaper reporter who went to Puhta Brava had an interview with theinsurgentchlpf.BaldenicroAtfwta, who told him that Maceo was at the hcaa of his army and moving towards Orientc. He stated that he accompanied Maceo to Matanzas, where he left him. Maceo was suffer ing from a slight woilnd, Cincinnati, Dec. 18. A special to tho Commercial-Tribune from Key West says: Fassengers by tonight's steamer from Havana state that rumors of lighting near the trocha wero rife in Havana today. The movements of troops In the streets wero more fre quent than usual, Indicating impor tant operations under way. The reports in Havana thgt Maceo Is not dead have bewildered the peo ple. All the newspapors stato that this matter mut bo sifted out and settled at once. They call upon olllclals to have Macco's and young Gomez1 bodies exhnmed and brought to tho city for identification. AH tho papers say that the present sensational accounts and rumors Injnro tho Span ish cause. Cubans are still divided in opinion, though the general belief is that Maceo is dead. Reports from Matanzas cannot be explained upon the theory that some of Macco's old army, under tho com mand of Ruls IMvcra, is operating there, and then it is wondered why hg Is so far westward, bufrowlng to ttflcT censorship over tho telegraph lines and the espionage over all American corrqspondents In Havana, It Is dtlll culto get reliable news. 1a known that the olllclals feel greatly worried over tho state of affairs around Matanzas, but whether it Is Gomez or III vera who Isopcratlug there is hard to determine.
