Shermun has never changed hi position on the Cuban queatlon. He favored Intervention during Cleveland's administration. He has favored it during this. He wanted to give DvLomc his passports, Instead of letting him leave Washington attended to the depot by half of the diplomatic corp,, But Sherman Is a sidetracked secretary state. The public and the presa have often Inquired during the present exciting period: "What has become of Sherman?" The real truth of the matter Is that Secretary Gage and John Sherman do not agree. 8herman knows the Cuban question from the time i the ten years" war to date. Gage Is not posted as to detail, but he insists on a plan of procedure that Sherman cannot and will not sanction. If Sherman Is not going to run the state department Is going to get out.

The county commissioners at their session yesterday adopted a resolution authorising the county treasurer to transfer from the general fund to the 10 bond sinking fund $20,000, for the redemption of $30,000 worth of county bonds of that class in tho near future. There Is already about $16,000 in the sinking fund. The treasurer called the commissioners' attention to a discov ery he had made, that about $186,000 had been transferred from the bond sinking funds to the general fund alnce the year 1880. There are 10 booda to the amount of $214,000 outstanding at a time. an- they will be redeemed and the excessive Interest stopped as soon as possible. The total tax collection, for th. month of February amounted to about $120,000. The commissioners appointed S W. Storey road supervisor of district No. 13.

The commission contenJs that the rates in thia state should be based upon the receipts of that portion of the large railroad systems within ths state, while the railroads contend that the rates should be regulated upon a basis of the receipts of the entire systems and the proportionate numL, r of miles 1n this state.

Three eight-hour shifts of miners are now employed, and good progress Is being made. R. M.

The committee of the Trans-Mississippi Exposition movement were not ready to present their petition for an s sroprtatlon to the county commls- slouprs, at their session yesterflay ana consequently the county dads adjourn ed to meet again on Wednesday, March 9, for the purpose ot acting upon the matter. The committee proposea to petition the county for an appropriation ot upward of $10,000 for dsfraylng the expenses of Lawrence county's ex Dibit at the Omaha exposition, and to support ths petition vrlth an lndemcl tying bond to be signed by the reepon-slble citizens ot the oouaty to guarantee the commltaloaen against any loss. The governor haa promised that the legislature next winter will make an appropriation to reimburse the coun ties for the use ot all moneys thus appropriated. Hughes county, ot which Pierre la the county seat, h&a made an appropriation on such ft plan, and number ot other counties ot the state have done likewise. There la no good reason why we cannot do so and every reason why the commissioners should act favorably upon the petition. Unless the county furnishes the necessary funds, an exhibit at tho exposition Is out ot the question, aa there te less than three months' time left In which to collect the material and arrange the display before the opening. Lawrence county paya ft large stais tax and should our commissioners fall to make an appropriation on the plan suggested at present, our county will have to contribute largely toward relm burslng the counties east ot the river that have voted funds to exhibit their products and we will receive no benefit whatever. This is a more important matter o this community than mar.y of -ur prominent cftlsene are willing to admit There Is not sufficient time left to make an exhibit by private aubecrip tions i'J u i matter of fact we are too Indifferent concerning It Every cltisen should attach his name to the Indemnifying bond and Interest him- If to the extent of urging upon the commissioners the necessity of com plying with th, petition.

The submarine t iri'iMlo boat, which wan built by John 1'. llollaiiil, left Nixon's shipyard at hilzal.Hlifot ami proceeded to l'rlnce's buy. She Ih being put through a series of trials to tetit her ability to run under water, and, while submerged, to attack a vessel with her dynamite g II lis. For a few days she will bo run upon the surface until her machinery has been shaken down; then she will be trle! beneath the surface. A force rf ileteetlves had hovered day and night about the shipyards, watching every movement on the strange little craft, which Is designed to move beuealh the tturface of the sea and destroy vessels a hundred times Its size. It hns not performed these feals yet, but it is expected that It will prove Its abaillty to do so. The boat was completed within the paHt week. Then tho Vlzcaya came Into the harbor. The government had fully deci'lcd that If anything happened to the big Spanish cruiser It must be able to show that every precaution hail been taken to prevent a mishap having Its origin outside the vessel It-solf. It was decided that If the Spaniard blew up It would be unpleasant to have hail a boat In the harbor that possessed power to navuKiito unseen and dull card fifty feet under water, carrying three, dynumlte guns and enough explosive to blow up a city. The government has an Interest In the Holism!, inasmuch as It Intends to buy her If she proves a success. There was an elenent of the ridiculous In watching her, but the administration decided to leave no room for reflection. The submarine torpedo boat which was designed by John P. Holland and built at Lewis Nixon a shipyard, was launched on May 17 of last ear, and at that time attracted world-wide attention. It was then expected that she would be tried by the end of June, but a series of several slight accidents oc curred which delayed her completion, and then, when she had made several runs on the surface. It was found ad visable to make soveral changes In her construction. The work has occupied the past six months. Owing to the dangerous chir arter of the work for which she was designed, every detail had to be thor oufihly gone over, that she might be perfect Her submersion will be gradual The Holland Is dosigned to navagate to a dppth of fifty feet, but her first submarine trial will consist of a aerie of short, shallow dives. One of these will tell the tale. If, when the man In her conning tower pushes the button that throws her fin like horlsontal rudders down, she pokes her nose deep Into the waters sinks beneath tho waves, and then at the command of her rudder rises again to the surface, a new and powerful fac tor will have entered Into the problem of marine warfare, and the Vnited States government will receive a pow erful addition to Its sea force. FRICTION IN TUB CABINET. Washington, March 1. Sentiment In Washington rather tends toward the belief that there Is a disagreement In the cabinet over the question of th. present relations with Spain. It Is of course a very delicate matter to talk about, but It will not be surprising If Secretary of Slate John Sherman should step down ami out. It has been said that Sherman Is not well, but his physlcsl weakness will not be the cause of his resignation It It cornea. Sherman la opposed to the policy of tne peace at any price ele ment here seeking to control the ad- mlnlstra: n. He has alwaya been op posed to Spain's methods In Cuba. Pur Ing Grant's administration In 1870 he Introduced a resolution recognizing a state ot war betweei Spain and Cuba, and two years ago. February 28. 1898, Sherman, speaking In favor of Cuban recognition In the senate made this statement: "I wish to say on my own responsibility, that. If this line of con duct Is pursued by Spain la Cuba, and If the people of the United States are Informed ot lta condition, aa narrated dally in the public press, there Is no of he be a Continued Activity in the Two Bit District-Liveliest Camp in the Hills. The Penobscot at Garden City a Bonanza Holy Terror's Flm Showing. There Is no cessation of activity in Two Hit. On the contrary some if the cuuipanies have Increased their forces and are crowding development work harder. As a number of the hafu approach the depth whir, the ore xone should be found the Interest the camp becomes more Intense. It generally agreed that when the ore struck In two or threw more places Two Hit will have a great boom. This Just what tho mlno owners of the amp uud the people of this city are trying to avoid. It Is safe to say there ire 400 to duo men at work in the district. Including miners, engineers and .ill others connected with the plants. Ihingu look very prosperous Indeed uid everybody Is huppy and contented. The Hardin company Is working steadily with three eight-hour shifts. The new Worth lug ton steam pump Is being lowered to be held for use In case of an emergency. Drifting toward t!ie south has been stopped, and the east drift Is now being driven. We undnr-stand It Is about 70 feet In length and Iti at the ore body hns remained uui form with that found In the othci vlrlfts In extent and value. Water was encountered In the Chi .'iigo and Great ICustcrn shaft Tuesday tilglit at a depth of 175 feet and th pump Is now being put In place. The appearance of water is a good Indira (Ion. The matorinl has been a hard shale with no water at all through It and this indicates a change In the chai ncter of the muterlal to a much softer stuff. The water came Into the shaft through a drill hole that was put down about four feet In the floor. The Chicago and Two Bit shaft la 220 feet deep and sandrock Is the material at the bottom. - The Great Northern shaft Is 70 feet deep and Is going down rapidly. The Hercules company stopped worn tn the shaft a few days ago, at a depth of 90 feet. Water was coming In to.. fast to handle by baling and hoisting in the bucket and the shaft Is too deep to windlass to advantage. The brick wark around the boilers has been fin Ished and a fire was started under them several days ago. A large force of men Is employed putting the hoisting m j chlnery and pump In position and the management hopes to start the plant 'n few days. Charlie Hardin Is working like a bea-er on the Hardin Standard hoisting plant and hopes to have It In operation within two weeks. The Golden Crest companv la work- ng a large force of men steadily and he shaft Is going down at a rapid rate. The material In the shaft haa changed within the past week and Is now highly mineralized. THE PENOBSCOT. Prank McLaughlin Is working a small crew of miners at the Penobscot ground, at Garden City, belonging 'o R. M. Maloney. The main tunnel has been run over 200 feet with the formation and the face at the end la 12 feet wide and 10 feet high, solid ore with no waste, and an average sample shows a value of $36.70 per ton In gold. Mr. Mclaughlin Is not shipping at present; his men are engaged running a cross cut tunnel toward the west to explore another shoot of ore known to exlt only a short distance away and which It Is thought will prove as large and rich as the main shoot. THR HOLY TKRROR MINB. Rapid Journal: "The Holy Terror mine Is looking much better than ever before In Its history. The main shaft Is being extended down another 150 feet and already It has reached a depth of thirty-five feet below the five hun dred foot level. It Is now thought that the new level will be reached In forty days, when the work of opening up a new chamber will be commenced. Tho shaft Is all in good paying ore and It Is thought the opening of the station on the 650 foot level will be In a much richer grade of ore than Is found on tho upper stations. The bullion output for the month of February is the greatest In the history of the mine. It Is reliably stated that the total bullion yield for the month just past will exceed $30,000. which with a ten-stamp mill treating the ore Is by no means a bad ahowlng. The Holy Terror company has Just purchased from the Mlllwauke mill Ing company the ten stamp mill, and also the nineteen town lota on which the mill standa, for a, consideration of t2n,mo. The deeds were on Monday nlaced on record In the office ot the reglsterer of deeds. The Holy Terror company haa an option on the Keystone mine and mill nrt the management la at present at work thoroughly prospecting th. mine." CONCENTRATES. J. M.
