JJreck's Views. Washington, Dec. •;.—The Haytian minister, Leger, was an early caller at the state department yesterday, having news from home of a rnost disquieting nature of which he wished to talk with the officials. Secreary Sherman being still confined to his house by a cold, and Assistant Secretary Day having attended the president on his journey to Canton, Second Assistant Secretary Adee was acting as secretary of state, and to him the minister had recourse. It appears that his government has cabled him from Port au Prince that the Haytian consul at Kingston, Jamacia, had telegraphed that two German warships sailed Thursday from that place for Port au Prince. The news had created the greatest excitement in the town and all over the island and disturbances v/ere apprehended. Only a Couple of School Sblps. The foundation for the statement is believed to be that the two German school ships which have been cruising in southern waters are just starting on their way northward to the United States. About the middle of last September the German charge here, Mr. Reichenau, formally advised the state department that the German cadet school ship Stein would arrive at Charleston, S. C., Feb. 2 next, and that the cadet school ship Charlotte would arrive at the same port Feb. 11. They are to depart on the 5th and 16th of February respectively. Neither of these vessels can properly be regarded as a warship, although they are attached to the German navy and carry a large number of young cadets. Xevertheless, the Haytian minister fears that their appearance in Haytian waters just at i:hi- juncture, when the threat has been made that German warships will make a demonstration in the harbor of Port au Prince, may lead to serious trouble there. Holillnj; n Club Over Central America. The slate dtpartment is endeavoring 10 bring pressure to bear on the recently formed greater republic ot" Central America to compel that applicant for membership among the "powers" to conceae to this government a guaranty of exclusive control of the projected waterway between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. One method for bringing a little leverage to bear is a refusal to recognize the existence of the tripartite republic- Our concessions from Nicaragua are assured and. therefore, when Minister Merry applied a few days ago at the siate department for instructions he was Informed that he was to proceed to Nicaragua, as our representative to that country alone. It is very doubtful whether he will be received, but he will make it known that until the Tsicara.- g-uan situation,is properly adjusted there will I"-" no representative to the greater republic. That Competitor at Panama. Consul General Gudger, at Panama, ha* made a report to the state department on the condition of the Panama canal. He says that it is whispered that England is doing all in her power to obtain control of the canal. France may not push the work forward, but some other nation or some other company wilt surely do so if those in charge forfeit their rights. The canal, when completed, will extend from Colon on the Atlantic to Panama on the Pacific, fifty-four miles. SPEAKER REKD IS IX TOWN.

Dec.. 4.—Speaker Reed arrived in Washington yesterday afternoon and took up his old quarters at the Shoreham for the winter. The speaker said he did not care to express himself concerning any of the important questions which are likely to come before congress at this session more than to say that lie saw no reason why the session should be protracted. Eeed \vas accompanied by his secretary, Allen. As soon as his presence in the city was known he had a flood of callers, many of his associates in the house as well as several senators being among those who paid their respects. The speaker looks exceedingly well and says he was never in better physical condition. Genera! Alger, secretary of war, has been particular to have it understood that the reprimand in the Lovering case will be severe, and that it will be couched in terms that will be in effect also a lecture to the court for making the penalty so light. Ir the reprimand is so sternly worded as the secretary of war expects ii to be. the order will reflect the views of the head of the department and not those of the man who draws it up. Adjutant General Breck. who is that man. expressed himself quite feelingly in the matter, and said that in view of what the army has done for Chicago (referring to what General Miles calls the "Chicago insurrection" of 1S93) he thought the citizens and newspapers of that city were unjust and harsh in their denunciation and treatment of Captain Lovering. He left no doubt upon the hearer's mind that he was not inclined to regard the captain's offense as unpardonable, and, in fact, seemed quite inclined to him, saying that the prisoner had to l>e brought to the court, and as he .had said that he would rather die than proceed, there did not seem to have been any other method left for Captain X/OT- criny than the one he adopted. General BzxcK .eyidentls considered th mpny or. the post surgeon at Fort Sh>ri- dan—that Hammond had but two trifling wounds—mere scratches—as l>\f result of the terrible "prodding with A sword and kicking" charged against the captain—as conclusive as to the Injuries of the insubordinate soldier, and ai showing that they were not entitled to' any consideration. He also seems I'X think that as Hammond insisted trial he should be carried It would not hfjve conduced to discipline to have copeeded just what he demanded. Commissioner of Indian Affairs W. A-i J«nes. whu is out in the west making i [tour of inspection of agencies, hns mide an investigation that repudiates thfe reported project of men in Oklahoma, Kansas and elsewhere to take possession of the Wichita Indian re- sefvatlon in Oklahoma and thus force urfon congress the early opening of th^se lands to white settlement. Corn- n:if;.=ioner Jones reported the results of his investigation in the following- tele- srritm, dated at Anadarka, Oklahoma, received by Secretary Bliss yesterday afternoon: "Xo foundation for rumor of invasion of Wichita mountains. It Is all sensational newspaper talk." GRIOG's TO HAVK M'KEXXA'S PLACE. When the National Attorney General Get» ; a. .Supreme Court Seat. Washington, Dec. 4.—From sources truj anthority of which should not be doubted it is learned that the position af {attorney genral to succeed McKen- uz,f who will be nominated to the United ; States supreme bench to succeed Justice Field, has been offered to Governor Griggs, of New Jersey, and that he-has consented to accept. It is understood that his appointment was urged by Vice President Hobart. Owing to ;the absence of President McKinley it is imposible to confirm this statement absolutely. End of the Railway Hearing-. Washington. Dec. 4.—The hearings of railroad men before the interstate com mftrce commission in the matter of extending the time for the equipment of railway cars with safety appliances have come to an end. but there will yet be some testimony given under oath. It is hardly probable that the commission will extend the time more than three years, and it may only extend it a year at a time, requiring each railway to do a proportionate amount of equipment each year on pain of having the penalty applied. Internal Kevenue Kreeipts Kstimated. Washington, Dec. 4.—In his annual report to the secretary of the treasury Forman. commissioner of internal revenue, estimates lhat the receipts from all sources for the current fiscal year will ag-qregate at least $155,000.000, an increase over 18:17 of about SS.300,000. During the last ten years ten officers were killed and sixteen were wounded by moonshiners. Twenty Contests in the House. Washington. Dec. 4.—The clerk of the bouse of representatives has received Autonomists in Cuba Fully Satisfied with His Scheme for the Island. APPROVAL IS PUT INTO TYPE, bouse nonce noTlce of twenty contests to be made in the next house. The list will be presented to the house or. Monday next and is largely composed of southern state contests. PRESIDENT MUST GO BACK. Coliffre.ss Cannot Assemble Without His Presence—Condition of His Metber. Canton, O., Dec. 4.—President McKinley will be in Washington for the open- ir.g_of congress next Monday, whatever may be the issue of his mother's illness. Although there has never been in the history of the government a case exactly similar it is necessary for the president to be.at the capital in person for the opening of a session of congress, to receive the joint committees from the two houses, and until this committee has waited on the president and received his communication the regular business of congress cannot proceed. Mother McKinley is unconscious, and the attending 1 physician can give the family no hope that, she will ever return to consciousness. The president can do absolutely nothing for her by remaining here. In view of these facts the president feels that it is his duty to return to Washington so as not to-delay the proper opening of congress at the regular time. He has arranged to leave Canton at 2:05 o'clock this afternoon. When the president arrived here yesterday he was driven at once to his mother's home and ushered in to her bedside. She evidently recognized him, which was a great satisfaction to him, for Major McKinley has ever been a loving son and entitled to the blessing for those who "honor their father and mother." _" ILLINOIS MEDICAL PRACTICE LAW Stops .John Atkinson, the Bone-Setter. from Continuing His WorK at Chicajro. Chicago. Dec. 4. —John. Atkinson will found an institution in Chicago for the treatment of cripples according to his ideas, and to spread his successful methods. He reached this decision upon the receipt of a telegram yesterday afternoon from Secretary Egan, of the state board of health. The message absolutely forbade him to continue his practice, publicly or privately. So as to come within the law he will put registered physicians at the head of his institution, but they will practice according to the Atkinsonian methods. The poor will be treated gratis twicea week. What annoys Atkinson most is that this latest fiat from the board prevents him from completing the cases be has begun. Speaking of little Henry Burton—"I ought to be allowed to follow up such cases as his," he said. "I am sure I can make-the child's club foot as good and sound as those of the healthiest child. I gxit the feet into their proper position. Of course they did not stay in place, but In a few more treatments they will be all right That is why I am bound to establish an institution, If I am not allowed to practice. I want cures to be accomplished in such cases," Pingre* to Enforce tbe Oleo I4iv. Lansing, Mich.. Dae. 4.—Gov.

Published Broadcast, itutl Is Considered x Big: Thing for lilauco—Canalejas Finds 15,000 Orphans Among the Coneent-rudos in Pinar del Kio —Distribution of the l>es titute Is Had—Cubans Anxious to What MeKiiiley Has to Say. Washington, Dec, 4.—Minister Dupuv de Lome iias received a caole dispatc! from Dr. Congosto, the secretary genera of Cuba, stating that the reports of tht death of General Pando, commander o the Spanish forces in the field, are false that General Pando is in excellen health, and is striking some decisive blows against the insurgents. This dis poses of a rumor which, if it had proved ts be true, would have been of serious consequence to the Spanish forces, as General Pando is second only to Gen ?ral Blanco and is directing all military operations, while Blanco remains at Havana inaugurating the new politica system which Spain has granted to the island. Information was received here yesterday from Havana that the organ of the Autonomist party of the island El Pais, had issued a. formal circular declaring in behalf of Cuban autonomists that they were satisfied with the plan of Cuban autonomy now extendec to Cuba. Realization of Their Own Policy. The circular further s-iys that the plan is a realization of the policy lhe> had urged from the beginning of the century, and declares that with the fulfillment of all aspirations of the Cuban people there remains no further reason for continuing the fight in the field. The statement closes with a patriotic appeal to the men in arms to return to the peaceful homes of their regenerated fatherlar.d. These declarations from the autonomists of Cuba, are said to be an important feature in the present situation, as the success of the autonomy plan granted by Spain is dependent largely on Cuban autonomists toward it. IVflJits 3Ioney but No More Troops. Madrid. Dec. 4.—The newspapers publish the following which is much commented upon: "Captain Geenral Blanco has cabled the-government that knowing that General' Correa, minister of war, is opposed to sending- further reinforcements, he has studied the means of creating a. volunteer corps of whites and negroes who would reply to the guerrilla tactics of the rebels by similar warfare; but he would need for this 4,000,000 pesetas monthly. He is convinced that by making such apecuniary effort Cuba, except in the eastern part, would be pacified by June next, when the local government could finish the war." CANALEJAS ON" THECOXCKXTUADOS. Says Tliey Are I*a<lly Distributed—Anxious to Hear McKinley's Message. Havana. Dec. 4.—Senor Canalejas, the special commissioner of the Spanish government, has returned here from his visit to the province of Pinar del Rio. He says there are in the province 40,000 "concentrados" gathered in from the country in the neighborhood of tne towns for protection from the insurgents, or to prevent them from joining the enemy; and that they are all in want. Of this number 15,000 are orphan?, and the majority are children of tender years. The commissioner adds that the "concentrados" are badly distributed. At Pinar del Rio, the capital, for instance, there are only 460 of these unfortunate people, while at towns like Consolacion and Candelaria there are over 4.000 of the sufferers. The municipal authorities of such places, the commissioner says, are without resources and . therefore unable to do anythfng to relieve the destitution. There is great anxiety here to know the terms of the message of President McKinley to congress. The central com- inittee of the Autonomist party has passed a vote of confidence in it3 president as a result of the hitter's negotiations with the Reformist party to bring about a union of both parties. The Marquis de Apeztegiiia, president of the standing- committee, of the Planters' association, expresses the opinion that all signs indicate the success of the season's sugar crop. The governor of Pinar del Rio is endeavoring to relieve the critical situation in that province, where a majority of the inhabitants are identified with the tobacco trade. The crop this year is only half the normal, though some good judges have put it at about 60 per cent, of the usual yield. It is rumored here that the agent of an English syndicate intends to buy several of the first cuttings, and he is said to have offered £100.000 for Corona and £200,000 for Cabanas and Carvajal. It was officially announced yesterday that the Spanish cavalry in pursuing the insurgents under General Ducasi, who is said to have been badly defeated recently in Pinar del Rio by the Spanish forces under General Bernal, has surprised an insurgent force, killing nineteen of the enemy and capturing five mounted men. Peter Jackson to Fight Jefferiei- Chicago, Dec. 4.—Peter Jackson, after an absence of several years from this country, has signed articles to meet Jefferies, the San Francisco aspirant for championship honors, in a twenty- round-contest before the Occidental club at the Mechanics' pavilion early in February for 75 j>er cent, of the g«±e receipts.

More Senuonable Weather and tK» Approaching Hollda3's Help M»Utr». New York, Dec. 4.—Bradstreet's says: Q»»«Ml trade throughout the country has presented rather more animation, owing to the colder weather and the approaching holidays. While clothing. dry goods, hats, shoes and notioiw. hardware and fancy groceries have besn in a little better demand from both jobbers and retail, in the reglo* tributary to Chicago, St. Louis, Omalia, St. Joseph. St. Paul and Kansas City the tendency of business has been to slacken. This is noticeable In iron and steel and in further depression in cotton goods, print cloths having made a new low record in price. The low price for print cloths is followed by a sharp reaction in wheat and a lower price for Indian corn. Oats are slightly higher and coffee has advanced, in addition to which there remains a long list of staples the prices of which are unchanged. The domestic grain trade to continues to look with equanimity on the unprecedentedly large quantities of wheat exported from both coasts week after week', the continuation of which is an evidence of an appreciation of the relation of supply to demand by the grain trade abroad. There are 250 business failures reported throughout the l r nited States this week, compared with 2.":; last week, 259 in the first week in December, 1S9G, 313 in U!<r>. 322 in 1S94 and "S3 in 1S93. TANNER CALLS AN EXTRA SESSION. Illinois Lawmakers to Meet for Varlontt 1'tlrposes on l)ef. 7. Springfield, Ills., Dec. 4. — Governor Tanner late yesterday afternoon issued a proclamation calling a special session of the gtneral assembly to meet in this city at 12 o'clock, noon, Tuesday, Dec. 1S9T. The session is called to consider the following subjects: First; to amend the laws for the assessment of property for taxation: second, to enact or amend laws in relation to holding and conducting primary elections; third, to apportion the state into senatorial districts; fourth, an act to establish police boards providing for nonpartisan police in al! cities over 100,000 inhabitants: fifth, to appropriate $60.000' to the maintenance fund for the Soldiers' and Sailors' Home at Q.uincy. By a mistake in engrossing- the appropriation bill at the last session of the legislature only $152,000 was ap- ropriated for the soldiers' and sailors* home, when $182,000 was the approprta- • . tion agreed upon by the conference ommittee of the two houses. In order to remedy this mistake and also to admit some 350 applicants whose applications for admission to the home »»« now on file there, the additional appropriation of $80.000 is asked for. Another purpose of the session is to appropriate a reasonable sum to defray the expense of testing- the constitutionality ot the inheritance tax law and Its enforc«- ment. North CuroIIrm l)«mocr»t«.
