Washington, Dee. 111. The senate
committee on foreign relations held a
meeting today which was devoted to a
consideration of the Cuban resolutions
which have been referred to It. No
action was taken, and the committee
adjourned to meet on Friday. It was
haid that the sentiment of the com
mittee was favorable toward reporting
one of tho resolutions, though Its form
was not determined. The ponitpone--
I incut of action until Friday was for
j the purpose of securing further Infer
I ination from the state department as
i to the situation In Cuba, especially as
to the latest developments in t lie Isl
and. There is also a desire on the part
of members of the committee to ascer
tain exactly what will be reported by
Consul lieiierul I.ee. Many documents
can be sent to the rominitte or to In
dividual members of it, ,whleh the de
partment might not wish to be uiado
public nt this time.
The failure of the committee to net
today, and lis adjournment till Friday
is tantamount to a victory for the con
servative ien In congress. There is
undoubtedly great sympathy for Cuba
in the se-nut-. but It clues not go to thP
extent of declaring war against S'laln.
Senator Sherman is understood to be
very much averse to any action that
might precipitate a crisis on the Cuban
question, and is bell 'ed t.i rtpresent
tho views of the Incoming administra
tion. This much Is certain, however,
congress will defer nny aggressive ac
tion until the whole evidence Is ob
tained from both slihs as to Maeeo's
The committee took no vote on any
proposition, but all the resolutions be-
; for the committee wet" read and com
mented upon. The simple declaration
I for Independence contained In the Cam
eron Joint resolution, which was intro
duced immcdlat.ly after the close of
last week's meeting, was the one most
favorably commented on. .All the
memheis of the commit tec complain of
the absence of accurate data upon
which to proceed, and some of them
complain that there is a tendency to
exaggeration on both sides of the Cu
ban controversy, which renders the
lirobb in of what to do all the more
dluii ult to congress.
! The Cameron resolution as Intro
duce d is as follows:
Resolved. Hy the senate anil housu cf
representative)) of the United States, In
emigre! assembled, that the indepcii I
ence of the republic -of Cut a tie, an I the
same I he rUiy, acknowledged by the (lim
ed Stales of America.
Sec. 2. That the United Slabs should
use it friendly o III cm with the govern
ment of Spain to bring to a close) the ar
between Spain and Cuba.
Senators Sherman, Cameron nml Tur
pic were appointed a suli-comniitlee to
go to the stale department and confer
with Secretary Olney for the purpose
of seeing if he had any further infor
mation which might be placed nt tho
disposal of the committee, and also to
ascertain more particularly what his
views are upon the effect of any elell
nite declaration by congress. The
cUcstlon was raised in the committee
that action by congress might produce
results of great seriousness, and this
hail the effect of postponing action to
day. Another point raised was that
ii would be in violation of (ill precedent
for congress to recognize n republic
or any id her form of a new govern
ment, but several members declared
that the time for Ignoring precedents

resomvc'.' No one, say bis friends
in New York. He made a grand president
of the constitution convention of IS!i, and
there Is no ear! lily reason, argue New
Yiokers, why he should not shine In the
senate. Mr. Cboale is derived from the
t:!i:u puritan stock of the pilgrim fathe rs,
and it Is a mystery where and how he
col his magnetic good nature and his
broad humor. He- is a product of the
s bonis of S.ilem and Harvard college. Ho

JL'DGE WHITE'S PLAN.
Lvpcrts t Suppress Vicii by Iinpou.
ing Heavy l ines.
Pittsburg, Pa., I Joe. lfi. In criminal
com t today Judge- White Introduced a.
now plan for suppressing the social
evil. Four wome n who wore nrresteel
for conducting disorderly houses we're
lined In the aggregate $1,100 and with
the promise of discontinuing their ne
farious business, osenned going to thj
workhouse. Judge White snlel:
"Tin y simply sell liquor as an Inci
dent to their business of the house.
It !.cem;rvltli the connivance of the po
lice ninny of th.se sporting houses are
permitted to go, nnd sending these wo
men n i simply puts the ooiinty to ad
ditional costs. It is no terror to ..em
to semi the-m to the workhouse. Py
this arrangeinct.t the county will K
about tl.'-'M bett r off when the costs
lire counted. It is better to hnv? this
money In the county treasurer's otlice
than Li let the police get it. Resides,
the women promise to ciiit, und wo can
send them up if they don't stop."
