received most respectfully. There was
no demonstrations, and he entered a
handsome carriage, with the coachman

and was driven to the Hotel Vngleterra,
where Mr. Williams had previously se
cured a line suite of rooms for his suc

Richmond, Va June 8. The cause
of the delay In the departure of Consul
General Lee for Cuba is now definitely
known. For several weeks past the
state department, at Washington has
been in correspondence with the gov
ernment at Madrid wltn a view of ar
ranging for General Lee to be free to
visit the camps of the Insurgents as
well as those of the Spanish.
This was General Lee's wish In order
to enable him to make a thoroughly
satisfactory report of the condition of
affairs on the Island to President
Cleveland. Now that the consul gen

sumed that the Madrid government
accorded him tho freedom of move

expects to make a thorough and prompt
report to the state department whether

It Is not at all Improbable that this re

and that it may possibly be expected

Phlldelphia, June 3. A decided sensa
tion was created among the Cuban resi
dents of the city today when It was
rumored about that the Spanish govern
ment may demand the extradition of
all those who have engaged In filibus
tering expeditions from this country
to Cuba. It is said that Spain will
claim that the expeditions come under
the terms of the treaty with the United
Staes of extridable offences, the offense
was committed on Spain's soli.
Senor De Lome, the Spanish minister.
Is reported to have taken eminent leiral
advice on the question' and to have re

mand the extradition of the filibusters
from President Cleveland.
RACE FOR A METEORITE.
Both Prof. Dyche and Lieut. Peary
Claim the Big Stone.
Topeka, Kan., June 3. It Is possible
that there Is an object that does not
appear on the surface In the sudden
departure for Alaska of Professor L.
L. Dyche, of the Kansas State univers
ity, During his northern trip last sum
mer the professor paid a visit while in
Greenland to the largest meteorite In
the world and Immediately announced
his determination to possess It Lieu
tenant Peary, however, claimed the
meteorite by right of discovery and
warned the professor not to attempt to
' As the meteorite weighs doxens of
tons Peary's warning was of necessity
heeded . at the time, but Professor
Dyche stated distinctly that he Intend
ed within a few years to return to
Greenland for the meteorite. Last
wmk tha itlSMtcaes ' announced that
Lieutenant Peary would sail (or Green
land this summer to secure the meteor
ite. As aoon as Professor Dyche can
reach Seattle he, too. will sail (or the
north, and it is quite passible that his
destination Is neither Alaska nor the
but the point in Greenland
where ine coveted meteorite lies.
Proft??or Dyche will have the longer
route through Bring Straits and the
northwest passage, but he la a man n(
great energy, and if he has In reality
started to get the coveted meteorite
the chances are of a lively race to
Greenland. The meteorite Is roughly
estimated to be worth IjO.OOO.

Funds to Be Appropriated.
St. Louis. Mo June 3. As IndlcafM
In these dispatches last night, the work
of raising and distributing relief funds
for tb" tornado sufferers Is floundering
In municipal poilties. Honest differ
ences of opinion upon the advisability
and legality 0f appropriating city funds
for reltf have grown Into bitter political
warfare. Mayor Walbrldge, a possible
candidate for governor, has resolutely
refused to appeal to the outnldt? world
for aid. Last niirht he wa3 hanged In
effigy in South St. Iahus and a large
public meeting held there demanded
that he withdrew from his position of
Independence. The friends and oppr
nents of the mayor's present hopes are
found opposing each other In the mat
ter of soliciting relief.
The measure to appropriate $100,000
of city funds for relief also met rtrong
opposition on the plea that It was ille
gal. The bill was re-submitted today
with a proviso making It legal. The
house of delegates, the lower branch of
the municipal assembly, met In special
session this afternoon to consider the
amended appropriation bill. The pro
ceedings at times approached a general
rough and tumble light among the mem
bers, but it was Anally passed by a vote
of 19 to 3. The bill now goes to the

Gold liugs ut the Lexiugton Con
vention. Lexington. Ky., June 3. This was a
day of triumph for Senator Ulackburn
and the free silver element of the Blue
Grass Democracy. The white metal
advocates outnumbered their oppon
ents in the state convention three to
oi.e, but they were not disposed to be
nutffnarulous, despite the pacific advice
of Senator Blackburn the gold men
were shown rcunt courtesy. State
Chairman Charles R. Long called tne
convention to order at 1.40 this after-
noon In Die auditorium of the Cna
tauqua assembly building.
It was a full convention, for Instead
of being 910 delegates there were nearly
1,200 within the enclosure set apart for
them. All the contesting delegations
being present In full force. Chairman
Long was the first to experience the 111
will of the silverltcs. In closing his ad
dress, he nalii: "Grover Cleveland
stands today as the equal In devotion
to the best interests of our government
and faithful service of any president
that has preceded htm and the country
is Indebted to the Democratic party for
bis election and I doubt not that the
convention will give him their votes."
This was the signal for a scene. The
delegates yelled and shouted, and
created such a disturbance that the
chairman could scarcely proceed, and
when he said: "John G. Cat lisle stands
before the American people as one of
the purest and ablest statesmen," they
drowned his voice with hoots and yells.
Nominations for temporary chairman
being In order John 8. Rhea, for tha
sliver men, presented the name of
Charles J. Bronston for temporary
chaliman, and Colonel Bennet H.
Young (gold) nominated Judge Alex
ander P. Humphries. He could scare 3
ly be heard and the chairman rebulod
the delegates for their discourtesy.
Bronston won by a big majority. The
vote, which shows the strength of sil
ver In the convention, was: Bronston,
C91; Humphries, 206.
Mr. Bronston then addressed the con
vention, and after he had finished his
address John S. Rhea, the noted free
silver orator, was called for. He .re
sponded In a three-mtaute speech coun
seling harmony. Then Senator Black
burn appeared on the platform. The
delegates cheered for several minutes
before they would allow him to speak
The senator told of his years of service
to the party, and said that while he
had suffered much at the hands of
Democrats who opposed the policy he
advocated, he bore them no 111 will and
had no animosity against these who
had fought him so bitterly. He coun
Belled harmony and urged bis enthusl
astio friends to be generous In this, the
hour of their victory, and unite with
the opposition, but without surrender
lng any of the principles for which they
had fought so bravely.
The convention was called to order at
8.10 tonight, but the committee on cre
dentials not being ready to report, the
other committees could not report.
The organization committee also had
a great deal of work to do In thorough
ly reorganizing the party machinery
cf the state and could not report to
night. Speeches were made by Evan
E. Settle, free silver candidate for con'
press from the Ashland district; Gen
eral P. Wat Hardin and others, after
which the convention adjourned until
10 a. m. tomorrow.

of the national silver convention which
Is to be held at St. I-ouls on July 23.

That Ueloug to Iliin--A Most Im
portant Report from Senate Patent
Washington, June 3. The senate
committee on patents by a vote of 4 to
3 has made a favorable report on the
bill for the relief of Daniel Drawbaugh.
The vote was as follows: For the bill-
Messrs. Prltchard, Call, Mills and
Kerry; against the bill Messrs. Piatt,
Clark and Wetmore. This bill has an
Important bearing on the Bell Tele
phone patent. It directs the commis
sioner of patents to issue to Daniel
Drawbaugh a patent or patents for the
inventions of improvements In tele
phony, described and claimed In pend
ing applications filed by Drawbaugh
In the patent office at various times
from 180 until 1884, notwithstanding
that said inventions may have been
placed on sale for more than two years
prior to the date of the filing of Draw
baugh's original application of July 26,
1SS0. These patents, when Issued, are
to have the same effect as though no
delay had occurred In presenting or
prosecution therefor and each patent
when so issued Is to be good in law
to secure to the owner the sole right,
during its term to the exclusive use,
make and sale of such patented inven
tion. A proviso gives all persons having
apparatus containing any of these In
ventions in use at the time of Issuing
such patents shall have the right to
continue the use of such apparatus
without charge or molestation; and no
one Is to be liable to Mr. Drawbaugh
for any manufacture, use or sale of
Drawbaugh's inventions occurring
prior to the Issuance of the patent or
patents authorized in the bill favorably
PRESIDENT BARTLETT TALKS.
New York, June 3. J. R, Bartlett
president of the Drawbaugh Telephone
and Telegraph company, said regarding
the favorable report of the senate com
mittee on patents on the Drawbaugh
"It will permit the Issue to Drawbaugh
of fundamental patents for the micro
phone, thereby transferring the control
of the long distance telephone from the
Bell company under the Berliner patent
to the Drawbaugh company. The pub'
lie will not be burdened by an extended
control of the telephone, as the Berliner
patent now covers the forms of tele
phone embraced in the bill and this
Berliner patent is owned by the Bell
company. The government has a suit
pending to cancel it upon the ground
of fraud. Drawbaugh's priority In the
invention of the telephone has ong
been known and abundantly established
and the government, has a second suit
pending against the Bell company in
which this priority has been plainly
demonstrated. Drawbaugh has been
prevented from obtaining the funda
mental patents only by a slight tech'
nlcality which was set up against him
through the influence of the Bell com
pany and It is to relieve Drawbaugh
of this technicality that the bUl has
been Introduced. Opposition was made
by the senate committee on patents by
the counsel of the Bell company and an
exhaustive argument was presented to
show that Drawbaugh was not entitled
to any consideration, but the merits of
his claims were so apparent that the
patent committee reported he blU favor
ably. The BeU company has enjoyed
many years of prosperity based on the
rights belonging to another, but con
gress has at last undertaken to right
this wrong by the enactment of a law
which, while moderate and reasonable
In Its terms, will secure to Daniel Draw
baugh the rights that belong- to him."
