The minister characterizes such reports as an effort to mix politics with charity, and as calculated to excite ill- feeling, which will embarrass the charitable movement and impede its execution in Havana and throughout the island. Referring to the subject, he said: "This talk of intervention in certain quarters has no other purpose than to embitter both countries and to divert the original essential purpose Of almsgiving. The extension of aid to the sufferers in Cuba is no more intervention than was the action of all the nation.? of the world—including- Spain —to extend help to Chicago after the big flre. or that of the United States in sending- a ship load of grain to Russia and last year to India, and to the city of London in sending food and money to Paris when the siege by the Germans was raised." Rosy Report from the Island. Turning- to a. dispatch just received from Dr, Congosto, secretary general at Havana, the minister proceeded, quoting in part from the dispatch: "It is not true that the Spanish authorities in Cuba are not equal to the situation. Succor is being given abundantly and relief committees are in regular operation. In two of the provinces—Puerto Principe and Santiago—there has been no concentration. Forty plantations are grinding sugar, and there 1:5 ample work for those who want it. Many of the reconcentrados who are reported to be suffering- are in such condition through an unwillingness to work. The energy with which relief measures are being ' conducted in Havana is shown by a glance at the Havana papers every day. where there are long lists of charitable donations of condensed milk, corn meal and like articles, especially serviceable for the relief of children. How Our Help Will Be Received. "It is perfectly well understood that the American help will be received witli the spirit that it is given, and the American government — as Secretary Sherman expressed it in his recent letter—offers the well-known generosity of the .American people in the same spirit that they have accepted foreign help in cases of public calamity. It seems that some persons who make the statement as to the conditions i» Cuba forget that the evils of war cannot be mitigated in a short time. They fail to compare the actual situation of today with that of the past, and they totally disregard the efforts made to improve the situation." Autonomist M-iiyorrt Inaugurated. The Spanish minister has received a dispatch from Havana stating- that the autonomist mayors of Bejucal and Juariabacoa had been inaugurated araid reat enthusiasm, the people receiving them with shouts of "Long live Spain." The dispatch adds that the patriotic spirit shown at these demonstrations give assurance of the speedy realization of the good effects of an autonomous form of government in Cuba, The autonomous mayors In these two cities are amorg the first to be named, in each case succeeding a military ruler under the martial system hitherto iu force. enuon ol'tne powers to partition the empire has been grossly exag- j erattd. What has China, done -to be c Ividt-d up and parceled out among the j owers? AVhat are her offenses a.gainst Ltions or against the civilization of f epoch in which we live?

"Why do they not partition Tur- That country was long theseourge of Europe. But the Chinese neverboth- eired anybody; they kept well within their boundaries. Much of the trouble that afflicts China at the present time emanates from the foreign merchants located within her boundaries. These fpj'eigners continually insist upon reforms. Son-it- of our young' men. also, are impatient and restless because the government moves slowly in the insti- t.ition of refornjs. "The truth is the government is moving as fast as it safely can. We can safely move no faster than we caji educate the masses. As far as Russia is concerned we are on terms of the warmest friendship with her. She has been our friend at times when that friendship was of inestimable value. Russia may be granted concessions. I will not say that she will .not, but I do not think by that token that we will be divided up and handed around like Christmas cake." Ill LEASH. Japan's Fleet of Twenty Modern Fighting Machines Only Await* ing the Word to Go. ACTS WITH TEE BEITISE SQtFADEON John Bull Strenjfthens Gibraltar. Washington, Dec. 29.—Reports received at the navy department indicate that the British government is pushing the work of modernizing the great fortifications at the rock of Gibraltar with all speed, and that no less than 5,000 Spanish workmen pass daily over the lines to and from their work on the fortifications. A large number of the heaviest pieces of Artillery are being put in place.a great dock is under construction, and the plan of defense permits of the absolute protection of a vast British fleet under the g-uns of the fortress. Contrary to the policy pursued tn some other British fortifications, the soldiers in charge made no objection to an examination of the works by American naval officers and sailors, and seemed proud of the strength of their position. Very Obliging of the Turk, Yaas. Washington. Dec. 29.—An indication of the willingness of Uie Turkish government to oblige the United States minister at Constantinople, who has been pressing for the punishment of the murderers of the American bicyclist Lenz, is contained in a cablegram from Minister Angell received at the state department announcing that the murderers have been convicted and sentenced to fifteen years' imprisonment. Tffe'se murderers, however, are at large, having escaped months ago into the Russian Caucasus, so that the Turkish government has prosecuted, condemned and sentenced them in their absence. Cabinet Has a Slim Attendance. Washington, Dec. 29. — Yesterday's cabinet meeting was unusually brief. Secretaries Gage and Bliss being out of the city and Secretary Alger ill, only five members attended. The appeal to the American people for' aid for the sufferers in Cuba was the principal topic of discussion. Violated the Civil Service Kulo*. Washington, Dec. 2S.—Fred E. Finster and William I.

R- Stockton Never Was Anything Worth Printing t* Buw the Report Upon. Washington. Dec. 29.—Secretary Gage was seet on his return from New York yesterday and questioned as to the truth of the pubUshed report that he had tendered iis resignation to the president," and that it had been firmly declined with many expressions of confidence and appreciation of his ability as shown in his administration of th& treasury department. Gage was not inolinC'd todiscuss the matter at length, but said that he had not tendered his resignation, nor had he any reason to bel.vvo that he and the president were j not; in substantial accord on the great i questions now before the country. The report he said probably sprung from a remark he had made to intimate friends to the effect that nor for anything- would he embarrass the president, and ;i ne saw that he was doing j this he wouKI resiern at once. He add' A d. "A cabinet officer ought always to | be and :?•• ready to surrender his office ; at the call of his chief, thp executive; • l-.ut I have not the slighest reason to believe that su.-h action on my part is • even remotely desired by Uie president. i The desires of other people in that j direction I arn not disposed to consid- ! er." In fact there never was any ' foundation worth noticing for the report.

Such is the opinion enter! tained hy •Wu-Ting'-Fang. the Chinees minister to this country. "I am of the said. Fans, "that tjie alleged City of Mexico, Dec. 29. — A gentlemen from Cuba who has been in Manzanilla in one of the so-called pacified provinces saya that in reality the war hag not begun there, for the country has been abandon to the insurgents, who have built towns which are supplied with abundant provisions from the neighboring: estates established by rebels, who even manufacture gunpowder and have arms factories, tanneries and shoe factories so that they can supply their troops with the most indispensable articles, Spanish authority is not recognized, and the inhabitants are comfortably settled under the authority of the Cuban republic. Occasionally the Spanish convoys pass over the roads, but the insurgents go out and meet them and fighting occurs on the roads, the patriots always taking the offensive. The poorer Spanish soldiers are in such a. condition that much sympathy is aroused, they being mostly boys, thin and cale, and complaining of the wretched quality of their scanty rations and of not receiving any pay for months. Only very sick soldiers are admitted to the Span- isih hospitals, and othei.-s who are really il! are compelled :o sleep in coun yards, exposed to the weather. StitcUliolilers Go to Its ! SpricgJield, Ills., Dec. 29. — At a meeting- held last evening of the stockholders of the Illinois Protective Building a.nd Loan, asocianon, which was reported to the auditor of public accounts as- insolvent, it was decided to keep the association out of the hands of a receiver, and to scale dowc the stock. A new board of directors was elected, "W. S, Rajrburn, the secretary whose eitrav- agance was alleged to have caused the insolvency, being dropped and new officers elected by them.

London. Dec. 29.—A special dispatc from Shanghai dated yesterday says "It is reported th^ a Japanese fleet o twenty warships is waiting near Got island, outside Nagasaki, fully equippe for war and only awaiting instructions This includes the Yashima and theFuji two of the finest vessels in the Japan ese navy; and the Chen Yuen, that wa: captured from China. The Japanesi fleet, it is understood, is acting in closi touch with the British squadron unde Vice Admiral Sir Alexander Buller commander-in-chief on the China sta tion. Japan will certainly oppose a per manent Russian occupation of Port Ar. thur. The sudden dissolution of the Japanese diet was owing to the war spirit. It is expected that the Japanese fleet wiil attempt to prevent the landing of reinforcements from Odessa for the protection of the Russian Trans- Asiatic railway in Manchuria." An Event of Great Significance. According to a letter which TheTime: publishes this morning from a correspondent at Tokio, a cabinet crisis occurred in November, due to the-refusi of the Progressists to vote an Increase in the land tax, \vhich is necessary owing to the deficits caused by the late war. Parliament would have expired next June, and'the Progressists, with a general election in sight, did not desire to riok unpopularity by voting- to increase taxation. However, Count Okuma. the leader of the Progressists, left the foreign office, says tie correspondent, with an enhanced reputation, and next to Marquis Ito occupies the largest space ir the field of the nation's vision. The Times, commenting editorially upon this letter and its dispatches, says: "The advent of a cabinet led by two such statesmen as Marquis Ito and Count Okuma may be regarded as an event of great significance by the other powers." Japs Are Spoiling for a I'^grht. A dispatch to The Times from Kobe, Japan, says the dissolution of the diet has greatly angered the political parties. It is probable that the Marcjuis Ito, former premier, and Couijt Okuma, a former foreign minister, wfll Torm a coalition ministry, with a vigorous foreign policy. The military party is eager for action; extraordinary activity prevails at the military and naval depots and warships are assembling at Nagasaki- Vienna, Dec. 29.—The Neue 'Weiner Tageblatt' claims that Count Goluchowski. the Austro-Hungarian foreign minister, foretold everything in the famous speech appealing to Europe to unite against America. It adds: "There is plenty of room for all. and if England will fight with the European powers against those dangerous rivals, the United States and Japan, the proof of what united Europe is capable will be given in eastern Asia." REPOBT FKOSI THE INDIA TVAB. Claim That the Afrldis Have B««n Well * Jleaten— Davitt on HtUlaine. London, Dec. 29. — A dispatch from Peshawur says: "The British columns have returned form Khyber pass, after punishing, with slight opposition, the Zakka-Khels in the Bazar valley. Military operations on the frontier are now concluded. Every Afridi and Orakzal valley has been visited. It now apears that the enemy's loss has been more se- x'ere than was at first believed, and out of all proportion to his possible fighting- strength. His trade with our centers for the necessities of life has been closed, and his autumn tallage prevented. The complete submission of the Orakzais is now accomplished. Many hitherto unknown strategical frontier routes have been surveyed and mapped out. The vaunted prestige of the Af- ridis has been lowered, and their pun- shment has paved the way for the permanent settlement of the country. It is firmly believed that, cut off from India and threatened with a reinvasion of their country in the spring;, they will now submit." London, Dec. 29. — Michael Davitt haa a long letter in The Daily Chronicle today in reply to one that appeared in Us columns yesterday signed by Adjutant General John E. Ballaine. of the state of Washington. He accepts the latter's sentiments as representing a large section of. American opinion, but protests against the statements that Tammany hall is an Irish organization and that Irishmen are responsible for corrupt iiunicipal government. While regretting- the corruption in the politics of Vew York and Chicago he poults out .hat in many directions, such as water and lighting. New York, far surpasses London in progress and enlightenment. British Heading off the French.

Mrs. Fitz- slmtnnns has released him from his promise of retirement. As to conditions on which Fitzsimmona will flg-ht Corbett and McCoy. These condition* are: "Let Corbett beat a man like Maher or Choynski and establish his right as a member of Bob's class; let McCoy beat his way up to a commanding' position and come along with his challenge afterward But first McCoy muet fight a fit opponent at the middleweight limit, and not at catch weights." The statement concludes as follows: "I'm not going to allow Fitzsimroons to accept offers from inferior men. When the proper time comes Fitz 1 will meet them all, one after the other in the same ring, if needs be." New York, Dec. 29.— "Kid" McCoy announced last; nijrht that he had arranged to meet Al Smith in this city today and that he will then post $) 000 as a guarantee that he will meet any man named by Fitzsimmons. It is to meet Martin Julian's condition, announced at Chicago, that McCoy has arranged today's conference. He is anxious, he says, to find out who Fitzsimmons wants him to fiffht. Cincinnati. Dec. 29.— James J.

That, is all I have to say." EVERHARDT AND DALY DRAW. Hud to ray #3OO for » .Pfi-mlt to Box Turn Hound* — Condition*. New Orleans, Dec. 29. — Jack Daly and Jack Everhardt met before the Tulanc Avenue Athletic club with about 1,000 •resent for a percentage of the receipts, The match was originally for wenty rounds, but the mayor would not issue a permit for over ten rounds, and charged $500 for that Everhardt said he had trained for twenty rounds ,nd refused to go on until he secured an agreement that if both were on their "eet at the end of the ten rounds the fight would' 1 be declared a draw. TCverhardt tried to make It a rougrh nd rushing fight from the start, but Daly was clever enough to keep away rom punishment. In the tenth round Daly's right did a rushing- buslne-ja on Everhardt's body, and there was danger of a knock-out.
