WAR WITH SPAIN

Gruesome Tales of Conflict.
SENOR DE LOME'S CABLEGRAM
Duke Do Tugan lielieves the Yarat
itLltrfcrcncc to War Between the
United States and Spain Arc Started
by Filibuttorer"Sccretary Lamont
Washington, Nov. 13. To a senator
who called upon him today to inquire
In respect to the war rumors In regard
to Cuba, President Cleveland replied
that the position of this government
was as stated In his last annual mes
sage to congress, one of traditional
sympathy with a people struggling for
autonomy and freedom, but neverthe
less this government felt its plain duty
to honestly fulfill every international
obligation. The president further said
that every precaution had been taken
so that If occasion should arise in Cuba,
the United States could assert Itself
with force, but he did not think that
occasion would arise.
Secretary Lamont was more outspok
en and expressed his Individual opin
ion that some authoritative statement
should be made to put an end to these
disturbing and unjustified rumors of
Senor De Lome, Spanish minister, re
ceived the following cablegram today
from Uuke De Tugan, Spanish minister
of foreign affairs, dated Madrid yes
terday: "The cablegrams from New York and
Washington, published In London re
ferring to supposed notes of Mr. Taylor
and the Spanish government are en
tirely false. There is not the slightest
foundation for such rumors, which are
undoubtedly of filibustering origin."

afternoon, and fully 10,000 people were
The promenade was a sea of human
ity nnd every seat, even in the top
gallery was taken. The occupants of
boxes were, perhaps, a trifle less dressy
than on former nights, as Friday night
has come to be regarded as country
cousins' night, and the swells of so
ciety remain away. The programme
of the day was one of the best of the
week. The most showy classes were
judged, and the awarding of champion
ship prizes In the classes fot hackney
stallions, mares and fillies In the af
ternoon, and the contest over the high

tures. There was one class for ladles'

analomy, announced her successful
navigation as far as Tong Ku, thirty
miles down the river from her former
habitation, and she Is now opposite the
famed Taku forts, near ttte mouth of
the river, whence. If her recent exer
tion had not developed serious strains,
she may go by easy stages as far south
as Shunghal for the winter, her cruise
to-day was a great surprise to the
officials of the department, who sup
posed Lieutenant Hees undertook to
move the ship as the result of a bet
that the Integrity of her bottom was not
wholly dependent upon the fact that it
rested on the bed of the placid Pel Ho.
The old vessel had long ago been con
demned as unseaworthy. and has been
frequently advertised for sale, but bid
ders have never appeared, and the de
partment has been compelled to main

of the utmost precaution to prevent
hazarding the lives of her officers and
crew. She is provided with a more ela
borate complement of. life preservers
than any ship in the service.

Coudersport, Pa., Nov. 13. The find
ing of a skeleton in the woods in Me
Kean county, about five miles west of
the Potter county line, on Wednesday
by Earl Frank, a pheasant hunter, dis
closes a murder and solves the mystery
surrounding the disappearance two
months ago by D. T. Colgrove, for
whom search was made for three or
The identity of the skeleton has been
made certain by Colgrove's brother,
who recognized certain portions of the
clothing. The skull had been severed
from the body and lay at the feet,
while one of the arms was found a rod
A rope about the butt of the tree in
dicates that Colgrove was either tor
tured before being killed, or else was
left to die tied to the tree, and after his
death his bones were pulled apart by
wild beasts. If the latter had been the
case, however. It is believed that the
animals would have also torn apart
other portions of the body. The gener
al belief is that the murder or murder

body. The motive for the murder Is be
lieved to have been important secrets
known by Colgrove, which he refused

PROUD OF UNCLE SAM'S FRIENDSHIP
He 1 hinks the Fifty Year Clanse Will
Shut England Out of the Orinoco
Country and the Watershed of the
Cuvani Rivcr--Grateful to tho
New York, Nov. IS. Senor Jose An
drade, minister from Venezuela to the
I'nited States, Is at the Hotel Savoy,
and in an extremely happy frame of
mind, his activity in enlisting this
countrys interest in behalf of his coun
try having borne abundant fruit.
When asked by a representative of
the United Associated Presses whether
the draft or treaty or proposed agree
ment with reference to the disputed
territory claimed by England had yet
beeu submitted to him he said:
"No, it Is strictly correct to say that.
Tn fact, I am not aware that such a
treaty is yet In existence. In the or
dinary course It will be submitted to
my government for approval. The
published statement that the treaty
had been drawn and wai brought here
by me. Is not correct. Neither have I
any intention of returning to Caracas
with the treaty.
"There Is much concerning the nego
tiations that I cannot speak of. but I
may say that Venezuela's claim is prac
tically conceded; for all we asked from
the start was that the dispute be re
ferred to a fair tribunal. Lord Salis
bury's recent announcement at the
Lord Mayor's banquet. I believe was
brought about by President Cleveland's
firm stand and by the knowledge that
the American commission would and
must render an adverse report."
What will be the effect of the agree
ment of England to a clause requiring
CO years occupancy to make a claim to
"I think it will shut England out of
the Orinoco country and the watershed
of the Cuyaui river and leave her little
of the disputed territory, except, per
haps the settlements between the Es
sequibo and Pomeroon rivers. Of
course, we, as Venezuelans, feel very
grateful for the kind olllces of the Uni
ted States and recognize It as a friend
ly art tending to uphold the Monroe
doctrine and In the interest of justice.
"After the findings of the tribunal
are made known must come a perman
ent treaty between England and Ven
ezuela, which I expect will be realized
before the winter passes. Of those
matters, however, I am not at liberty

Chlcagoi Nov. 13. By a vote of seven
to five, Louisville and Washington vot
Ing with the "big five" minority fac
tion, the National League of baseball
clubsatlts concluding session this after
noon decided to clip the wings of the
national agreement, by striking out
that part of section 34 of the
national agreement, which provided
that an amendment could be made by
unanimous consent of the board. Now
the league Is the only authority com
petent to change the national agree
ment, and the arbitration board is not
the arbiter of its own jurisdiction.
This apparent change of sectional
strength was made by the Brush ma
jority of seven In the Interest of har
mony and to show the minority faction
that the magnanimous victors did not
want to arrogate to the arbitration
board, which they control, the arbitrary
powers which the "big five" are cred
ited with scheming for until Louisville
turned the tables. The "big live" be
ing outvoted In the arbitration board,
were to settle now Instead of at the
spring meeting the question of power
to touch the national agreement, so
those voted to strike out. Both sides
professed to be satisfied with the action
taken, and there were more friendliness
displayed than at any time since the
The Rusle suits against the New
York club formed a subject for much
talk at the meeting and in the lobby.
Mr. Freedman said a resolution was
adopted by a vote of 8 to 4, Baltimore,
Louisville aud Washington voting with
the "big five," pledging the support
of the league to the New York club
In the matter. Colonel Rogers, of Phil
adelphia, said that Charles M. Sher
man, the Chicago club's lawyer, had
been retained by the New York club
here to defend the Rusle suits, and
that the colonel would appear at the
trials and attend to the base hall end.
This action was reported to the league
and Mr. Freedman made a few warm
remarks, alleging that certain members
had Instigated Rusle to bring this suit.
Mr. Wagner, of Washington, moved
to reconsider the vote taken yesterday
In refusing to reinstate the last sec
tion of the national ugreement. Col
onel Rogers, of Philadelphia, moved
that the national agreement be not
changed, except by majority vote of
the league, and this proposition tak

of 7 to 5.

Mr. Hart, of Chicago, renewed his
motion of last year for the abolition

fending the suit brought in Cleveland
by Oliver Tebeau, of that club, who
was fined 1200 last June, to discon
tinue any further defense and to pay
proper costs. This action was taken
because the court of common pleas
had decided the imposition of the fine
was contrary to the league constitu

by the directors of the league, but In
reality the resolution of the board was

Detroit. Mich., Nov. 13. The general
missionary committee of the Methodist
Episcopal church this morning selected
Philadelphia as the place for holding
its meeting next year. Apportionment'
of appropriation for foreign missions
occupied the remainder of the session,
only two Items being disposed of.
The committee apportioned 148,576 to
Japan, a cut of $6,000 over lust year,
and $11,2S5 to Korea, which Is about
the samo amount as was devoted to
that mission last year.
The most important feature of the
afternoon session was the report of
the special commission of Africa, which
recommended the adoption of extensive
missions In that country known as
Bishop William Taylor's self-supporting
missions and their Institution as
regular foreign missions of the Metho
dist Episcopal church.
The report also recommended the ap
propriation of $14,700 for Africa, an In
crease of $9,000 over last year, and It
The apportionment for the whole of
India was made $134,400 and $H,0:i6 for

SILK THREADS AN AID TO CRIME.
W. P. llnzcn Points Out a Fallncy in
the Making of Paper Money.
Washington, Nov. 13. William P.
Hazen, chief of the secret service,
treasury department, In his annual re
port expresses the opinion that the
distinctive paper in use for money is
an aid to the criminal rather than a
protection to the public, because of the
fact that a note printed upon paper
containing silk threads (as a number
of the best counterfeits and all of the
raised notes are) Is accepted in a ma
jority of Instances without hesitation,
owing to the erroneous impression that
the paper used by the government Is
manufactured by a secret process and
cannot be counterfeited.
He has also become convinced that
the Introduction of silk into paper tends
to lessen Its wearing quality and Is
therefore responsible to a degree for
Its short life.

TRIAL OF THE NEW
BATTLE SHIP IOWA
The Vessel Cajable of Mikiof Better
Time Than Anticipated.
THE TRIP WAS VERY SATISFACTORY
On a Two Hours Burst of Speed She
Averaged 10.3? Knots at U1 Revo
lutions, .2? Knots More Than the
Contract Speed of the Vessel
Philadelphia. Nov. 13. The big sea
going battleship Iowa returned here
this evening from her builders' trial
trip oft the Delaware capes. The trial
was essentially an engineer's trial to
give the ship builders an idea of the
power of the engines and the way in
which they work, and the speed de
veloped was a secondary consideration
of that trip. Nevertheless, on a two
hours' burst of speed this morning, the
Bhip averaged 16.27 knote at 112 revolu
tions of the screws. This is .27 more
than the contract speed of the vessel
calls for, and that the Iowa is capable
of better time than this was shown
when she was occasionally spurted up
around the 17 knot notch.
The result of the trio was in every
way satisfactory to Kdwin 8. Cramp,
who had it In charge for the build
ers. The Iowa left here on Tuesday at
noon and made the run to the break
water on one tide, arriving there that
night. The government was represent
ed by Lieutenuut Doyle, ordance offi
cer stationed at the yard, and Assist
ant Engineer Pickerel. On Wednesday
morning after adjusting the ships com
passes the Iowa ran off shore twenty
miles and was steamed four times
over the ten knot course between the
two lightships on rive fathom bank
shoal. The engineers were given a good
limbering to, and at 915 revolutions
14 knots were made. On Wednesday
night the Iowa anchored within the
capes und went out again Thursday
morning. She was run straight off
shore for sixty miles and 110 revolutions
of the screws were maintained. The
result of the run Thursday was sat
isfactory to the engineerinj depart
ing nt and she returned to her anchorage
inside the capes again o:i Thursday
This morning Mr. Cramp determined
to test the ship's speeding abilities u
little. Under forced draught Bhe was
driven for twenty miles oft shore nnd
then was headed landward ugain.
Strong gales from the northwest met
the ship as she headed shoreward, but
she met the rising waves stiffly. While,
of course, as all battleships do, she
took some water aboard, and the spray
flew all over her, she rose far more
buoyantly to the sea than does either
the Indiana or Massachusetts, and
there was not near the weight of wat
er coming over the bow as either of
these vessels ship in any sort of a
heavy sea. The Iowa Is a deck high
er than the Massachusetts and In
diana, and was built to take long
cruises In deey water.
GOOD TIMK MADE.
When the Iowa passed Into the capes
this morning, after her run off shore
she bad averaged 10.27 knots at 112
revolutions. This was a very good per
formance considering the class of coal
used and the comparatively shallow
water which makes a ship "squat" and
drag and thus retard her speed. The
Indicator cards have not yet been
worked out for the run, but it Is ap
proximately that the engines developed
about 11.000 horse power, which Is 1,300
more than was developed by the en
gines of the Indiana on that ship's of
ficial trial. No requirement of horse
power Is exacted in the ship's contract,
but she must make a speed of 16 knots
on her official trial. For every quar
ter knot made above this 16 her build
ers will receive a premium of $jo,oon.
Tho Iowa ran up the bav and river
on a single tide again this afternoon
