Th" umcilitig of this statue was made the occasion of a gie.it 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 naval pie-eniluence, 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 lon," said the inline minister, "Inn shown that we arc capable of Instilling sympathies, and tho presence of the czar of Russia at Uethonv hns shown that we are able to stiengthen an al liance and Ineicasc our stiength In the confidence she has succeeded In In spiling und In the sphit of eciulty which she has shown In nil foielgu le latlous. Wo have thus better set veil the Intel csts of the countiy than by a policy of bluster, which Is moio calcu lated to nlaim eveiybody than fright en anjoiie.

"The coming con sultation with the countiy will be a gi eat'-i v Ictoi y for the l epubllc, bo cause we shall Impose upon ouiselves a stt later discipline." M.

NEW BOOK ON SCHLEY CASE War Correspondent Graham Tells Storij ot the Santl- ci(o Battle. MOVEMENTS OF THE PLYING SQUADRON 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 ieo.ue.st of somebody aboard I piesumo of Philip himself gave till en cheers for Commodoie Schley.
