the pension appiopriallon bill will be
passed. Although this measuu can Its
about X1S9 000,000, it follows the tlepait
ment estimates and dots not inole
any serious issues, so that aftei a Inlet
explanation its passage usually lollows
promptly. The was and means com

talendar, for the leclemntlon of ieve
nue stamps made woithless by the le
peal of ceitaln featuies of the w.u icve

Upon leaving one of the hospitals
which was founded In lfiSO, the Fiendi
piemlei said:
"It Is not a hospital that I base Just
Mslted: It Is the et.tlbule to the
nioigue'." He pi utilised to do his ut
most to sctuie government aid In

whose elf tuts helped to obtain for
Fiance her colcTnlal possessions of An

statue was made the occasion of a ovation to the Fiench piemier
and the othei mlnisteis.
A leceptlon by the delegates to the
lahur and commeiclal organizations
followed. In the evening, at a banquet
at the piefeetuie. offered the Fiench
premier by the Itppublltans of the de
pal ttneut of the Lohe. M. Waldetk
Uofeseau, icplyln to a toast to his
health, made his piiucipal speech of
the day. In It he set loith the posi
tion of the government, In view of the
coming geneinl elections.
The speech took the form of a ic
vlow of the polity of the government
and the woik of the ptosent legislatuie.
It expiessed tho linn conviction that
the elections would lesult In a sulk
ing Ictory for the republic mid oer
tluow all the foices of reaction.
M. Waldeek-Uosseau declared that
since the formation of his iiilnlstiy the
country had iicquhed n security un
known for a long time und that it ic
tiuiied an incut able pessimism not to
iccognlze that the bad days had gone
by, When the cabinet took otllce, he
said, the factions of the paity which
legutded Fiance as its own pioporty
and patriotism us a political Industiy,
the solo patent of which It confeited
upon Itself, was piepuilng to usuip
power by the e-cticlse of erltablo
tjtauny, and that within the Hist year
this tyianny was succeeded by material
ami moral dUotdei.
He ice ailed tho sweeping Uepubllian
vlctoiy In tho municipal elections, ntul
said that the hour for action, Instead of
defence, had seemed to have nrihed,
und that the government .submitted a
pi ogi amine of lefoims. He stud the
adoption of the law of associations had
nuiiked a decisive step forwuid tiom
the point of luw of economic develop
ment, and its guarantees of society.
Notwithstanding a pioductlou uf agita
tion, the speaker said thu law of as
sociations had begun to be executed,
and that It would be tan ltd out In tho
splilt In which It was conceived, with
out passion and without weakness,
llefeiilns to the iiioi legislation,
which had lesulted in a loss to the
tieasuiy, the piemier said that tho
transltoiy deceptions attilbuted to this
law wen' not too heavy a pi Ice to pay
foi tho suppiession of the bcouigu of
akohollHin which tlncntened tho veiy
eNlstenco of the race.
Alluding to the naval piogramme of
F'unee, M. Waldeck-nosseau said that
jub-inurlne boats, the constiucilou of
Which was duo to Fiench genius, weie
calculated to oveitutn tho laws of

The ptemlci spoke of tho develop
nient of Fiench-Afilcnn emplio and
said that the eneigetlo action In tho
far I Jus t had given Fiench lullueucc ft
new attthoilty,
"Tho piesenco of the Itnllan ut Tou

czar of Russia at Uethonv hns shown
that we are able to stiengthen an al

a stt later discipline."
M. Waldeck-nousscau concluded by
leculllng the tactics of the adveisarles
of the l epubllc. He said the lltst antl
Hepubllcan coalition had been fonned
of contnullctoiy elements which had
found no title that they could avow
as thelis The speaker dubliPil It the
"nameless piitj" and said that later
It took the name of the faction ot tho
soldier Iloulanger.
"Todav It Is Nationalism," he said,
"the name of expectancy, allowing
each element to eheilsh the hope of

War Correspondent Graham Tells
Storij ot the Santl-

Views of the Fight with the Spanish
rieet Obtained on Board of tho
Biooklyn A Defense of Admiral
Schley Coi respondent's Veislon of
the Signals on the Arrival of the
New York.
B. t'tliniie Wire from The voclated PrcH
Chleirro, Jan.' 12 A book entitled,
"Pehley and Santiago" Is In press In
this city and will bo Issued within 10
das. The author is Oeoige IJ. Gin
ham, a vvai coiiespondent, who has
had exceptional facilities for Kntheilnff
materials as he was on boaid the
Ihooklyn dining the fight with the
Sp mlsh fleet. The book Is wild to have
the unqualified endoisement of Rear
Admlial Schley. When President
Itocwevelt was froveinor of New Yoik,
he was piesent when Mr. Oiaham gave
an ae-ount of the battle to state otli
eials and membeis of tho leglslatuie
and sa'd:
"X am sure j ou feel as pleused at
having listened to Ml. Graham as I
do, for I have listened to the best ac
count I have every beard oi lead of
the naval fighting during this win."
This book Is the flist and only com
plete stoiy of the woik of the fbing
stttndion, tommanded by Sthley. Mr.
Giahnm was assisted by his camera,
which enabled him to add many In
tel esting ilitistintlons and the account
ho gives of the movements of the fleet
and the battle Is evidently sincere. It
is fiee of indent and peisonal at
tacks; tho aim is to give N a tiiithful
statement ot eveiv oeeuirenee In
connection with the aitlval ot the New
Yoik, Mi. Giaham sajs;
"The coiiunodoio leached over to
me, took my glasses and looked
seaichlngly to the east, bajlng slowlv
as ho did so: 'There Is the Teas and
theie is. the Vixen, hut I don't see
thtijiNevv Yoik, 'and then, as Jn kept
the glasses up, -In an Instant he evi
dently bad found hoi. for he lemaikcd:
"Yes. theie she Is, 1 can tell hot by
ht'i smoke."
This was at I li o'clotk aftti the
Colon had gone ahote, while Captain
Cook had iteelved the sut lender of the
vessel. At f o'clotk, just as the Ni'vv
Yoik lnd got within '..igualling dis
tant e. Commodoie Schley oidei ed tho
signal taised: "A glorious vlctoiy has
been achieved, details later.' This sig
nal l enlaced the one which we had
been living for nearly thtee-riuaiteis
of an houi: 'The enemy has sunend
eied,' and which the New Yoik had
not answered. Vainly the signal offi
cer on the bridge watched th New
Yoik for even tho courtesy of an an
sweilng pennant showing that she un
dei 3tood our signal. None was dls
plajed and then It nppaiently dawned
upon Commodoie Sehlej's mind that
Sampson's ling captain on the New
Yoik was Intent on Ignoring him.
Picking up the megaphone, Commodoie
Schley did the one thing that dav fot
which I have alwais criticised him,
lowering his dignity sufficient to plead
with the commander of the ileet that
he might have the surrender of the
ship wheie escape had been fiustiated
by the 13iooklvn and the Oiegon, thus
making complete tho day's vlttoiy.
" 'I lequest the honor of tho bin tend
er of the Cilstobil Colon,' ho said In a
eleai, distinct voice, and fiom the
commander-in-chief's tlagshtp came
wnfted back tho Insolent nnswei fiom
aloft: 'What?' 'I letiuest the honor
ol the suriender of the Cristobal Co
lon,' ngaln called the commodoie, and
this time his volte trembled slightly.
We watched the bridge of the New
York closely, waited Intently for an
answer, but nonoji, came. And that
message, ns had all the others pieced
Ing It since the desti uctlon of the
Spanish fleet, which had been addiessed
by Schley to tho Now Yoik remained
unansvveied. Somebody i.ilsed a broom
nt our masthead on one of the pennant
linlvardB nud the ciew of tho Oiegon
followed suit and then gave three
cheers for Commodoie Schley, On the
Texas the men lined up on the foi waul
deck ond at the of somebody
aboard I piesumo of Philip himself
gave till en cheers for Commodoie
Schley. The little Vixen elided

yelling themselves Iiouim! for the
