Washington, Nov. President Mas
so, i>f the provisional Cuban (Govern
ment, has cabled from Santa Cruz del
Surto Senor Quesada, secretary of the
Cuban legation here, saving: "Assem
bly has not yet met, owing to the ab
sence of a quorum."
This was called out by an inquiry
from Senor Quesada as to reports com
ing by way of Santiago, representing
the Cuban assembly as in session at
Santa Cruz del Sur and engaged in im
portant questions relating to the fu
ture of the island, the disarmament of
the Cuban arm;/, and the extent of co
operation between tiie former insur
gent forces and the United States au
thorities. It had been stated that the
assembly organized by choosing Gen.
(iareia as presiding officer, thus indi
cating that the military element under
(iarcia would dominate the assembly.
Senor Quesada was surprised at these
reports, as he was likely to be notified
of the convening of the Cuban assem
bly, particularly as lie lias been chosen
a member of the assembly, represent
ing one of the districts of the province
of Puerto Principe. lie accordingly
telegraphed President Masso for infor
mation and the foregoing answer was
There are evidences that President
MeKinley and his cabinet have assur
ances that the action of the Cuban
provisional government will not be
antagonistic to the policy at Washing
ton, but rather in sympathy with the
execution of that policy. Senor Que
sada is satisfied that this will be the
course of the Cuban assembly when it
begins work, and it is provable that he
made this view known during a recent
interview with Secretary Ilay at the
state department. In the event of his
leaving Washington to attend the as
sembly at Santa Cruz del Sur it will be
with the special purpose of securing
co-operation between the authorities
there and here and of avoiding frictions
which may arise.
Speakingof the Cuban assembly. Mr.
Quesada said: "It is only the first step
toward a constitutional form of gov
ernment, and it will give way later tc
mi assembly truly representative of all
the people of Cuba. For the present
President Masso has called together
this provisional body, which is neces
sarily crude because of the unsettled
condition of affairs in Cuba. It is not
a military assembly, only eight or ten
out of a membership of 48 being from
the military ranks. The others are
from civil life doctors, lawyers and
planters—and represent the best ele
ments in the community. This assem
bly will not form a constitution, but
will provide for a constitutional con
vention that will take up the more im
portant work of framing a constitu
tion and establishing a permanent
government for the island."
With this programme in view it is
hardly expected that the question of
annexing Cuba to the United States
will assume large proportions for the
present, but will remain in abeyance
until the Cuban government is suffi
ciently established to permit it to ex
press the wishes of the people of Cuba
on annexation.

Chattanooga, Tenn., Nov. —Three
private soldiers of the Eighth United
States volunteer infantry, colored mi
ni lines, camped at Chickamauga park,
were ejected from the ladies' car of the
Chattanooga Kapid Transit Co.'s line
which runs to the park, by the con
ductor and trainmen last night. The
negroes were very disorderly and ugly
about it and when they reached the
park they went to tliercamp and gath
ered together several hundred of their
comrades and went to the station,
where they began stoning the train
just as it was pulling out for the re
turn trip to the city.
They broke all the windows of the
cars and seriously injured a brakeman
named Faircloth. Fortunately there
were few passengers aboard. After
ward thej' stoned another passenger
and three freight 1 rains which passed
the station, doing great damage. They
declare that they will stone every
train on the road until they are al
lowed to ride in the ladies' car. This
car was put on during the summer for
the use of officers and ladies and 110
privates, not even white soldiers, were
allowed to ride in it. The negroes re
fused to listen to their officers, but

Camp Poland, Knoxville, Tenn., Nov.
3.—Tin- camp of the Sixth Virginia
colored regiment was the scene of u
mutiny yesterday among the men of
that command. The trouble was in
the nature of the men in several com
panies refusing to obey commands is
sued by the nine white officers who
were recently assigned to the regiment
by Gov. Tyler, of Virginia. The officers
were assigned to the various companies
a few days ago and since then there
has existed a feeling of discontent 011
the part of some of the negroe*.. who
preferred to be commanded by officers
of their own race. The feeling grew
until it evidenced itself Wednesday
morning in a positive declaration
against the white officers. The regi
ment was called for drill at the usual
hour and the white officers assumed
command. To their surprise the ne
groes refused to execute the drills and
when pressed for an explanation it
was announced that the presence of
white officers was the cause.
The officers were inclined to the
opinion that it was a momentary com
plaint and sent their companies out
under colored lieutenants. At police
formation the same open disregard for
orders from the white officers was ap
parent and it was then determined to
report the matter to higher authori
ties. Col. Croxton, commanding the
regiment, reported it to Col. Kuert.
division commander, who in turn vis
ited the camp with Maj. Gen. Kates,
who arrived in the camp for the first
time a few moments before the mutiny
begun. It was evident that serious
trouble was in order if the riotous ne
groes were not quieted and Col. Kuert
at once ordered the Thirty-first .Michi
gan and Sixth Ohio regiments to the
scene. These regiments were under
arms, but the Ohio boys were turned
back before reaching the camp.
Cols. Kuert and Croxton and Maj.
Johnson, a colored officer of the regi
ment, addressed the men. They ex
plained that such action was in direct
violation of the military laws and was
punishable by death. They assured
the men that a complaint, if such they
felt that they rightfully had, should
be forwarded to the governor of Vir
ginia, and they were assured that such
a complaint would receive attention
from all officers concerned. Col. Crox
ton stated emphatically that a con
tinuance of this revolt would mean
rigid enforcement of the discipline
covering such cases and said he de
manded obedience and had the power
to enforce the demand.
The Michigan regiment, which had
appeared upon the scene in quick
time and which was armed for battle,
was ordered back to its camp and the
negroes agreed to send their com
plaints in through the military chan
nels arnl in the meantime to obey their
white officers. It is not believed that
the white officers will be removed lie

them resigned on account of incom

Pittsburg, Nov. ;i.—There lias not
been the general resumption of win
dow glass factories that w as expected.
All of the pot plants have their fires
lighted in anticipation of going to
work, but enough blowers and gath
erers are loyal to President Simon
Burns to make the question of resump
tion a doubtful one. Several of the
factories 011 the South Side started at
midnight, but with a limited number
of men. The Chambers factory at New
Kensington is in partial operation,
but at the It. C. Schmertz plant at
Kelle Vernon not a man responded to

At the 1). O. Cunningham factory in

Men and women were out in force to
see who would disobey Burns. A num
ber of men were in readiness, but when
the word was given to start Burns got
on the inside and ordered idleness.
Some obeyed, but a few remained and
were made the subject of jeers by the
crowd outside. The police finally dis
persed the mob and no one is allowed
near the factory. At the l'hillips
plant, just below Cunningham's, seven
blowers are at work and the firm ex
pects to be in full operation soon.

London, Nov. :S. —The dispatch from
Wei-Mai-Wei announcing the war
preparations of the British naval au
thorities there is regarded here as be
ing of grave importance, coupled with
the Anglo-French war preparations.
It is surmised that Russia, profiting by
the present strained relations between
Great Britain and France, has decided
to push forward her aims in the far
east by forcibly seizing the valuable
treaty port of New Chwang, which
Great Britain cannot permit.
The fact that the coast guardsmen
throughout the United Kingdom have
been warned to be in readiness for
mobilization is regarded as a menac
ing sign. Many of them have already
joined their ships.

Cincinnati, Nov. 6. -The war investi
gation commission bad interesting
sessions Friday. It had among tlie
witnesses four officers who served in
the Santiago campaign, one of them
being (Jen. Egbert, who as lieutenant
colonel of the Sixth l.'nited States
infantry was shot down at San Juan
hill by a bullet piercing his chest.
Lieut. Col. Minor, now in command of
the Sixth infantry, was another inter
esting witness. Perhaps the most sug
gestive testimony was that given by
Maj. Griffith, of Kansas City, who was
in charge of the Third division hospital
of the First corps.
The first witness was Dr. Menage,
contract sergeon with the Sixtli in
fantry. He testified as to the absence
of hospital tents for the regiment in
Cuba. The medical supplies were
reasonably sufficient. The appliances
and supplies at the hospital the wit
ness did not know about. His chief
trouble was in getting an ambulance.
This he got after a delay of two days.
Lieut. Schendel, of the Sixth infan
try, said he left with the Sixth for
Tampa and at Santiago was made com
missary. They had ample quarters on
the trip from Tampa to Santiago. Com
missary supplies were always suffi
cient. At Montauk Point the supplies
were sufficient.
Lieut. Col. Minor said the Tampa
camp was excellent. There was diffi
culty in getting transportation from
Tampa to Cuba. The transport i.iami,
in which bis regiment went to Santi
ago. was not fit for troops. The men
would have died in their quarters if
the voyage had not been mild, so that
the port holes were left open and air
thus supplied.
Col. Hunt, of the First Ohio infantry,
testified that when his regiment
reached Chickamauga it was poorly
supplied with clothing and arms, and
never was fully supplied. The sickness
among the troops was not the fault of
the camp nor due to the lack of medi
cines, but more to the incapacity of
commanding officers.
Gen. Egbert was the next witness.
He had no fault to find with the camp
at Tampa or the supplies, or even with
the transport Miami, except with the
ventilation. He found troops abund
antly supplied for the campaign. The
witness received excellent care at the
hospital. Referring to his return on
the Seneca he said the conditions on
that vessel were not good.
Maj. Griffith testified regarding the
conditions at Chickamauga and the
hospitals. He had difficulty in getting
enough tents and when he secured the
proper number be found the last ones
of poor quality. As a rule the men
detailed us nurses were unfit. Witness
asked Dr. 11 of for female nurses. This
relieved the situation. The stall' of
the division hospital was inadequate
when the increase of sickness occurred.
Sickness among the surgeons reduced
the working force. He said there
would have been no difficulty in get
ting hundreds of competent surgeons
at Chickamauga within a week. He
said he knew many applications were
refused. He attributed the failure at
the Camp Thomas hospitals to "red
tape'' and "peace for HO yeat-s," which
incapacitated the department for ex
pansion for emergency.
Washington, Nov. s.—Acting for the
war commission Col. Denby has taken
the testimony of Gen. Lawton, who
was in command of the Second division
of the Fifth corps in the Santiago
campaign. Summing up Gen. Lawton
"Taking into consideration the con
ditions we were obliged to face, the
character of the country, its climate
and other things being considered, I
can say there were no serious or gross
mistakes made. I can say there was
no lack of cure on the part of any of
those in authority, whose duty it was
to look after the interests of the camp.
We had with us as fine staff officers as
there are in the world; no better could
be found. These men worked night
and day and no human being could do
more than they."
Camp Meade, Middletown, Pa., Nov.
5. —Chief Commissary Allison and other
officers at corps headquarters went to
Harrisburg Friday to appear before
the war investigating board. The com
mittee heard testimony relating to
Camp Alger anil other camps estab

I'lie testimony of the witnesses heard
did not aid materially to that taken at

Gratifying Letters to Mrs. Pink
ham From Happy "Women.
"I Owe You My Lifo."
Mills, Neb., writes:
" DEAR MRS. PINKHAM :—I owe my
life to your Vegetable Compound. The.
doctors said I had consumption and
nothing could bo done for me. My
menstruation had stopped and they
said my blood was turning to water. I
had several doctors. They all said I
could not live. I began the use of Lydia
E. I'inkham's Vegetable Compound,
and it helped me right away; menses
returned and I have gained in weight.
I have better health than I have had for
years. It is wonderful what your Coin
pound has done for me."
"I Feel IJk« a New Perton.*
ICO9 Belle St., Alton, 111..writes:
" Before I began to take your Vege»
table Compound I was a great sufferer
from womb trouble. Menses would ap
pear two and three times in a month,
causing me to be so weak I could not
stand. I could neither sleep nor eat, and
looked so badly my friends hardly
knew me.
" I took doctor's medicine but did not
derive much benefit from it. My drug
gist gave me one of your little books,
and after reading it I decided to try
Lydia E. I'inkham's Vegetable Com
pound. I feel like a new person. I
would not give your Compound for all
the doctors' medicine in the world. I
can not praise it enough."
