Jan. 27. Less than a year aco, more than 53 brave American sailors came to their death In Havana harbor. To-day. ZH of theso heroes of the Maine lie in a Spanish cemetery with their graves unmarked! A great government Is neglecting to honor Its dead. The little plot of ground where these men are turning to dust has no monument to designate the burying place of American sailors, no fence to protect the sacred spot from the cruel feet of a careless public, and no Hag to Indicate that the dead patriots ever -served under the banner of freedom and liberty! 1 visited the splendid Colon cemetery a few days ago and found a number of soldiers there looking for the graves of the ictlms of the Slalne. On every side were magnificent mausoleums and costly granite shafts. In their very Ehadow was a piece of barren ground with no mound and no inscription! This was the labt resting place of the sailors of the United States, a place to obscure that the aid of a guide is necessary to find It! Around these graves stood a little group of soldiers; they had come to pay respect to the dead. The shame of 70,000,000 people was represented by tbo&e soldier boya of our army. It was for the Maine that those soldiers enlisted. It was for the Maine" that they fought at Santiago and on Saw Juan hill, and, the government that Eent'.them. here is permitting Its sailor dead to He in a grave upon a foreign shore, unhonorcd! Those soldier visitors felt humiliated and their hearts were full of sorrow at the shocking condition, so different fronjvwhat they expected. , The excuse that this burring place Is only temporary, does not satisfy the American people,' and those Americans who are now in this city took immediate action to show some recognition of tho .country's dead. The Gran Payret.theater.opened its doors for a benefit, its Amerlcarl managers giving.the proceeds for the purpose of at once erecting a fence at least arvunu tne consecrated ground. The receipt were miserably small, and the trustee '.of the fund. Mr. Thomas R. Dawley, edltdr.br the Times of Cuba, has opened the columns of his paper Ao receive subscriptions tj aid further the laudable project. A railZ-mod-est In design, has been put In place'that will at least prevent pedestrians from wtfk-ing over the plot of ground that we revire, and, as soon as the fund is ample, a suitable monument will be erected by private enterprise that will not wait on the slot methods of the government. When the army camps were laid out Iri this province. It was necessary to utilize private property and. In several Instances, KrowinK crops were destroyed. An appraisement was made by a board appointed for the purpose, and the owners of the land were satisfied with the amount apportioned to them, although, of course, they orlg-'inally wanted about ten prices, for they think America is a land of gold and that we have come to this Island for the express purpose of giving the Cubans all the money they want. After the reports of our officers were forwarded to 'Washington, it was discovered at the seat of government that no fund was available for the payment of the indemnities, and the peasants who abandoned their houses and crops nd are In great want, are living in the open air with insufficient food, all because ' ,of technicalities. It Is true that the subsistence officers now here are preparing to Issue rations to Indigent persons, but all Americans now In Havana who are familiar with the Injustice being done the natives sincerely hope that the president will .make haste to have these poor people paid the- money that they are entitled to. and do it promptly, that the suffering and possible death shall not be a crime on the goddess of Liberty. The intense eagerness of the volunteer soldiers now encamped near this city to get back to the States and be mustered out takes precedence in Importance of all J 1 first Eoothes,and rn3CL then permanently cures itching or ijntment tP-s specific in all skin diseases, and gives quick relief in barns and bruises.

In fact, there is no camp news. The soldiers are restrained from visiting thtf many points of interest that abound in this locality, and camp life. is duller than it ever dared be In any of the Southern camps of last summer. When I go out among the soldiers, they implore me to tell them some news as to muster out. and so earnestly ask If an order has not been issued ror them to embark to America. One energetic man from Missouri, but not in a Missouri regiment, has opened a book for betting, and is also conducting a mutual pool on the time of the muster out. The purchasers of tickets in the pool can buy any date they wish, and the betting is as lively as on your race track In its palmiest time. This soldier of chance will also bet you that the muster out will occur in February, or in March, or in April, and he posts the odds which he will give on any date. The soldiers are all thoroughly disgusted with the occupation game, as she is played in Cuba, and there will he a. hurjDV lot of American boys when the volunteers receive? orcrs to board the transports. Tne men tell me that they will not complain of quarters on the ship as they did on the trip to Cuba, and that any old cattleship will be a floating palace to them, if the said ship Is headed for the United States. Our authorities who are- attempting to provide Havana with a-model police force are experiencing some very amusing problems In organizing the department. ..One policeman, after receiving his commission and star, went through the main streets tiring his revolver for the double purpose of celebrating his good fortune in securing an easy position and to Impress the other natives with his authority. His star and commission are now in the chiefs office. Most of these aspirants for police honors have been in the insurgent army, that wonderful organization that was not an organization, but rather was a collection of men who wanted liberty, but no work, and who managed the so-called insurgent army about as school children would. Some of these were officers of various rank, and they want to wear such uniform as strikes their fancy. They cannot understand why all must wear the same uniform, for, behold! did they not wear fantastic clothing of their own design when officers of the Cuban army? The generals want to wear stars in profusion, and the lesser ex-officers will be satisfied with a fewer number of decorations. Those so far sworn Into service have the idea that, as policemen, their authority Is absolute, and they believe that they have a right to enforce such regulations as suit them, without regard to law. and with a perfect right to do as they please, regardless of the regulations applying to members of the force. It will be observed that these native officers of the law have much to learn and much to unlearn before they become of service to the public. Havana has a street bearing the name of Bomba. The name has no special significance, but Bomba street has for years been known as one of the most lawless localities in all the world. A man's lire has not been safe there, for murder was considered a pastime in that thoroughfare. Since the advent of the American troops a very strong provost guard has been main- tainea in sumclent numbers to cneck, in a measure, the crime committed In this uncivilized highway. Bomba street In its infancy, years ago, resembled somewhat the Midway and its bad features, but Bomba street is now thoroughly matured, and Its barbarians will not come under the civilization of modern times without a struggle. It Is believed locally that Its reformation will occur at about the same time that General Shatter stated the Cubans would be able to conduct their own government! The local newsDaDer men who are now employed by the American dallies of this city are Just about as energetic as the balance of the native population. These Spanish speaking reporters and editors are engaged to do any work necessary and to go about the city in search of news, in the progressive American way. But these fellows are not anxious to make records as pedestrians, and beseech the English and American reporters to give them news for translation, so that the Spanish readers may have the opportunity of learning what Is going on in town! These sly natives delight in dropping Into an easy chair in the shade, smoking cigarettes and taking life easy in translating what the American reporters have gathered up by hard work. They like to do all their work at a desk, and have some other fellow do the walk ing. SUMNER T. BISBEE. SLASH INJALARIES.

Attorneys N. H. McKeehan, Walter D. Mcnls, F. A. Henry and J. W. Stewart denied that at a meeting of attorneys Judge Dellenbaugh admitted that he had received such fees. He did say, they declared, that he had received fees from Burke before he went on the bench, .in another case In which they were jointly interested. Miss Theresa Corlett testified that she was a stenographer in the office of Everett, Dellenbaugh & Weed at tne time Dellenbaugh was appointed to the bench. She said she was present when Judge Dellenbaugh told Mrs. Manning that he must turn her case over to Burke, as he was alxajt to go upon the bench, and saw him Introduce Mrs. Manning to Burke, who escorted her to his office. AN ELOQUENT PLEA SENATOR DANIEL'S STRONG ARGUMENT AGAINST EXPANSION. INEXPEDIENT, UNWISE, UNJUST HE WOULD TREAT PHILIPPINES AS CUBA IS TO BE TREATED. Objects to Admitting: as American Cit- lxena the "Black and White, Bine, Brown, Crny, Spotted and Striped'' People of the Philippines. WASHINGTON. Feb. 3. For moro than five hours to-day the senate listened to arguments In opposition to expansion and in opposition to the ratification of the treaty of peace. The speakers were Mr. Money, of Mississippi, and Mr. Daniel, of Virginia. The former's address was comparatively brief, as he did not enter into the constitutional phages of the question. He vigorously antagonized the ratification of the treaty, holding that, by such action, the Filipinos would bo admitted to the Union as citizens, and that, if they were not capable of self-government, we did not want them. Mr. Daniel made an exhaustive argument, in which he covered all the points in controversy. His speech was a brilliant oratorical effort. His picture of the situation in the Philippines 'and his peroration, in which he appealed to his colleagues not to depart from the history and traditions of the American nation, were beautiful specimens of eloquent English. Throughout, his speech was received with careful attention by senators and many auditors in the galleries, and at its conclusion he was applauded wurmly. "To-day," said Mr. Daniel, In beginning, "we are the United States of America. To-morrow, If a certain treaty now pending before this body bo ratified, we will be the United States of America and Asia." It Is seriously proposed, said he, that we take to this country a large and miscellaneous assortment of Asiatic Islands and to make citizens, with all the rights of inhabitants of territories of the United States, the large and varied assortment of Asiatics, Mongolians, Malays and negroes who inhabit them. For his part he deemed it inexpedient, unwise and. unjust that we should do this thing. "We are asked." said he. "to go 7,000 miles from our shores to grasp and hold as subjects 8,000,000 people by force of arms, and to hold the land until the American people shall decido what disposition is to be made of them. "I do not believe the body of the American people understand the significance of this treaty. I do not believe that some senators who- are crying to us' to ratify the treaty understand it. The treaty fixes the policy of the government. What may be done afterwards is merely clerical detail. The treaty is a thoroughfare over which 8,000,000 of American citizens will march into this Union. It is a marriage or nations. Henceforth and forever, the Filipinos and Americans will be one. I trust that be fore the marriage Is consummated .the spirit of American constitutional liberty will arise and forbid the bans. "What is their relation to us, that we should set forth, knight-like, with lanco in rest to rescuoHhem? We cannot turn them back to Spain. Tho American people so treat those who were comrades on the field of battle? They have not yet attained the dignity and power of a nation. We cannot recognize the Filipino republic and come away from the islands. We have only to look skyward to seo the birds of prey circling about, ready to descend upon, those who are weak. "What next? The face of the treaty tells us. Let us treat the Philippines as we treat Cuba. We are now in military occupation of the islands. Let us remain in military occupation until we have assisted them, with kindly offices and force of arms if necessary, until they have established such a government as destiny may have fitted them or." With respect to Cuba the president could withdraw our forces whenever his good sense dictates that he should do so. Why not give him the same latitude with reference to the Philippines? Contemplating the 125 years of our nation's history, we find but one Impediment to progress, and that was found in the effort to introduce the colored race, which was not assimilable with the Anglo-Saxon. This race had been the only fly In our national ointment, and the occurrence had been most sad and tragic. It had the effect of turning brother against brother, and was the only element that had prevented the Americans from being a homogeneous people. Now, when we are happily beginning to readjust ourselves to tho changed conditions after the civil war. we are challenged to go forth and lay the heavy hand of sovereignty upon another and a different race. Mr. Daniel also attacked the plan of acquisition as unwise strategically. 'A separate navy would be necessary, and we should have to fortify each of tho 1,200 islands. This meant millions upon millions of expense and an era of militarism for tho United States. He had never expected to be called upon to defend the Declaration of Independence in this hall, but ho felt bound to do so now. In the course of that defense, he said the Declaration of Independence had done more to mold American institutions and to swing back our affairs when they wont wrong than any other American utterance. Mr. Daniel defended the taking and holding of Porto Rico, which he held 'was one of the natural outposts of .this Further along ho declared it was not a question of hauling down the American flag That flag was not a fixture in the Philippines. Once the treaty is ratified, however, tho American flag would sink to the center of the earth In those islands and the stars, as they broke to tho breeze, would rise until they mingled with the stars of heaven. ,r "Peace is In this treaty." continued Mr. Daniel. "That is a pleasing term to conjure with, but are our friends who favor this treaty certain it means peace? Mr. Daniel urged the senate not to deceive Itself or attempt to deceive the American eople about the treaty. Its ratification, he declared, meant tho utter destruction of all tariff laws between us and the Filipinos: the destruction of all Immigration aws relatlns to the United States and lux Philippines, and accorded to the Asiatic Negritos.

FILIBUSTERS WIN. Succeeded in Blocking Legislation House of Hepresentntlvea Teatcrday. WASHINGTON, Feb. 3. Most of the time of the house during the three hours session to-day was consumed in filibustering against relief bills on tho private calendar. The filibuster was finally successful .and the house, adjourned without taking up the bills. ' The conference report on the diplomatic appropriation bill was adopted. Mr. Dockery, Democrat, of Missouri, began the filibuster to prevent consideration of relief bills, which would follow in the regular course of things, by making, the point of no quorum. The speaker was able to count only 145 members, and a call of the house was ordered. A quorum appeared upon the roll call. In order to consume time, Mr. Simpson, Populist, of Kansas, moved to -reconsider the vote. Thereupon Mr. Bailey, Democrat, of Texas, moved an adjournment. "It is perfectly apparent," said he, "that we can accomplish nothing to-day." The motion to adjourn was lost, 95 to 10S. Tho vote then recurred upon Mr. Simpson's motion to reconsider. The motion to reconsider was lost 67 to S4. Mr. Hitt presented to the house the conference report upon the diplomatic and consular appropriation bill. Ono of the senate amendments to which the report agreed provided for an additional secretary of legation at London, Berlin and Paris, aroused the antagonism of Mr. Bailey, Democrat, of Texas, who could not 6ee the excuse for granting additional secretaries. Ho knew, he said, little about the work of legations abroad, but he did know pomethlng of them here, and two-thirds of the time of the secretaries here was devoted to social functions. Mr. Hitt remarked humorously that Mr. Bailey, of course, had a much wider knowledge of the social world and its duties than he, but as to the work of foreign embassies, ho had knowledge, having been wrptnrv nf th lncrntinn nt Paris several years. Owing to the pressure of work he had frequently worked until 11 o'clock at night and often all night. Mr. Hltt's playful reference to Mr. Bailey's social duties drew from the latter the response that Mr. Hitt attended social functions twenty times where ho attended them not at all. He had but one secratary and he thought that sufficient. Mr. Hitt explained that the secretaries of legations were not the scribes of the ambassadors, but had multitudinous duties to perform. After hearing his explanation, Mr. Bailey acknowledged Mr.' Hitt was zlght and he was wrong. The report was ffereed to and at 3 o'clock the house adjourned. HOUSE NICARAGUA CANAL BILL Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce Haa Agreed on a Meaanre. WASHINGTON, Feb. 3. The house committee on Interstate and foreign commerce to-day directed a favorable report on the Hepburn Nicaragua canal bill, with amendments, as a substitute for the Morgan bill, passed by the senate. The essential feature of the bill as reported is that it authorizes the president of the United States to acquire by purchase from Nicaragua and Costa Rica the territory necessary to build the canal and then to proceed with the construction of tho canal. One hundred and fifteen million dollars is appropriated for the completion of the work authorized. The changes made In the original Hepburn bill are in reducing the appropriation from $140,000,000 to $115,000,000: striking out the provision for tho acquisition of "full ownership. Jurisdiction and sovcreiitntv" over the route. and in adding civil engineers from the navy and civil life to those of tho army for the purpose of making surveys, etc BLAND'S SILVER WEDDING. Missouri Delegation Preaent Free Silver Leader nnd Wife With Memento of the Occasion. WASHINGTON, Feb. 3.-(Special.) The Missouri delegation in both branches of congress last night met at tho residence of Hon. Charles Bland and presented the free silver leader and his wife with a costly hand embrazed solid sliver fruit bowl, in honor of the twenty-fifth anniversary of their marriage..' -The fund was made up from private contributions by every member of the delegation. Appropriate remarks were made by Representatives Cowherd, Benton and others. Cnrtla Bill Reported Favorably. WASHINGTON, Feb. 3. (Special.) Mr. Curtis, of Kansas, to-day reported favor, ably from the Indian committee his bill to put in force in the Indian Territory certain provisions of tho laws of Arkansas relating to corporations. The committee also reported favorably the Curtis bill providing for general legislation touching the rights-of-way to .railroads through the Indian Territory. Indian Territory BUI. WASHINGTON. Feb. 3. (Special.) Senator Baker, of Kansas, to-day Introduced a bill changing the place for holding court In the-Central district of the Indian Territory from Cameron to Potcau. The same bill was Introduced in the house by Mr. Little, of Arkansas. CALL ON THE PRESIDENT. Dclea-ntion Repreaentins; Louisiana Purchnae Exposition Promised Support hy Mr. McKinley. WASHINGTON, Feb. 3. (Special.) A delegation of prominent MIssourlans representing the Louisiana purchase exposition convention called on the president this morning. The delegation Included R. C. Kerens, ex-Governor Francis, D. B. Robl-son, president of the Frisco road, and Breckinridge Jones. They met with a hearty reception and the president expressed great interest in the projected enterprise. The exposition, he said, ought to be substantially encouraged and he personally would do all in his power to insure its success. The committee stated that they expected to secure from private subscriptions at least $5,000,000; an appropriation of as much more by the city of St. Louis and at least $3,000,000 as a loan or otherwise from the national congress, making an absolute guarantee of $15,000,000 in all. otherwise they would give up the enterprise. They had no doubt, however, that this amount would be forthcoming. After their visit to the White House, the delegation had a session with the Missouri members of congress. Tney discussed plans ror about an hour and finally resolved on behalf of the Louisiana purchase convention and the local committee at St. Louis to tender a banquet to all the senators and representatives in congress who represent the statCB comprising the original Louisiana purchase. The date of the banquet was fixed for Saturday, February io, anu me Arlington notei, in mis city, was agreed upon as the place. DEATH RATEjN HAVANA.

ENORMOUS INCREASE OVER .'92 JANUARY FAILURES WERE REMARKABLY SMALL. Feature of the Week Was the Decline in Wheat, Which Waa Largely-Due to Government Crop Report Bradatreet'a Review. NEW YORK, Feb. 3.-R. G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade will say to-morrow: "Failures in January were smaller than In any previous month, ' except August, 1S03, and July, 1S97, and the proportion 'of solvent payments to clearing house exchanges Is smaller than in any month of which record exists. In January they were but S8 cents per $1,000 clearing house payments, and the smallest in any previous month had been about $1.03 per $1,000. The defaulted liabilities were $7.721.S97. against $10,451,513 last year, a decrease of 25 per cent, and 5S per cent smaller than in 1S9T, 57 per cent smaller than in 1896, 50 per cent smaller than In 1S33, and 7 per cent smaller than in 1801. The manufacturing failures were the smallest, excepting August, 1698. There were only seven failures for $100,000 or more, and the average of liabilities per failure is smaller than in January or any other year, and the small failures are not only fewer in number, but smaller In average liabilities than In uny previous year. Considering that January Is usually one of the largest months of the year In failures, the return Is surprising as well as encouraging. "The volume of business In January has been far beyond all precedent. Exchanges through clearing houses have been -H per cent larger than last year, and 59.7 per cent larger than in 1S92; and, while speculation in stocks at New York materially increases the volume of payments, it was larger outside this city by S3.3 per cent than In 1892. It is pertinent to note that the remarkable expansion in the -aggregate of business payments comes in spite of a material 'decline in prices during the past seven years so great that the payments of $82,000,000 would cover about as much business as payments of $100,000,000 in 1892. "It is not strange that European exchanges are disturbed and alarmed, and a rise in sterling exchange, even when gold Is being shipped this way, is one of the interesting features. It is commonly ascribed to recent sales of stocks on European account, but it would take a million shares at ordinary prices to cover one month's merchandise balance. Europe is not buying enough to cover its accumulating excess of merchandise exports over imports. "The most remarkable feature of tho week has been the decline of 5 cents in wheat, with only one-half a cent in corn and only one-sixteenth In cotton. The government estimate of the wheat crop, 675,000,000 bushels, has more influence than any other from that source for a number of years, because It is recognized as the result of great efforts to get at the truth, and Is, therefore, considered about the lowest estimate admissible. With ordinary consumption and present exports of 150,000,000 bushels from the crop of 1S9S, flour included, there will be less than 100,000,000 bushels for replenishment of stocks, for farmers' holdings and for exports la the next five months and the exports of 4,912,436 bushel3, flour included, from Atlantic ports, against 3.094,517 last year, and 1,495,601 from the Pacific ports, against 776,840 last year, besides 309,855 bushels from Duluth and Portland, Me., show a stress of foreign demand which may well recover prices. "A very strong market for cotton goods has prevailed, and prevents raw cotton from declining. The advance in goods has been unusual, and has bevn sustained by heavy buying especially of print cloths and kindred products. The prospect is that the outgo will place dealers and manufacturers in a stronger position than they have held for years, with smaller stocks of goods unsold. A better tone appears in the woolen goods market also, with some important grades, which were opened at a great le-duction in prices, recently advanced, which has stimulated the demand for all grade?. Sales of wool have been fairly large, 30,752,-400 pounds for the year thus far, against 36,582,470 pounds last year, 50,111,300 pounds in 1S97, and 26.942,800 pounds In 1S92." Bradstreet's to-morrow will say: "A quieting down of speculative Interest Is noticeable in a number of markets this week, without, however, bringing to light any important impairment of the underlying strength of the general business, in fact, must be regarded us furnishing a vent for outside speculative Interest, because these staples did not suddenly gain In strength from causes located In those trades, but the activity was really a result of an overdo w of speculation from the stock market. The Important price recessions of the week are those noted in wheat and other cereals, except oats. "Immediately instrumental in bringing-about this reaction might be mentioned the final government estimate of last year's crop, placing It at 675.000,000 bushels, far In excess of earlier estimates by the same authority and exceeding all but the most sanguine of trading estimates, which had generally fixed upon 650.000,000,000 bushels as tho probable maximum yield. The advance in wheat checked export trade, but an improvement in this direction is reported at the lower range of values. "A sympathetic quieting down of interests In- cotton is to. be noted, but the scarcity of good shipping grades nnd the advancing tendency in manufactured goods, which appear to be moving well on spring account, have operated toward steadying this staple, more particularly as the crop movement shows little tendency to increase, notwithstanding the recent advances. Explanatory of this matter condition may be the reports of bad weather and country roads throughout many sections of the South. Print cloths are at tho highest point reached for over a year past, and sympathetic strength in other classes of cotton is noticeable. "Tho feature of the iron trade this week is tho announcement of the selling or practically the entire output or the Lake Superior ore mines for tho coming year. Large plgiron consumers appear to have, temporarily at leaBt. withdrawn from the market and the Iron markets as a whole are quiet. An active demand for finished products, however, still continues, and steel plates, iron uars, runs, Mruuiurui uuu cur material have been in active request, with some important advances reported, more particularly at Western nolnts. The strength in other metals continues a feature, heavy advances being reported in copper, tin. spelter and lead. "The strength of a lumber market Is a feature, and the scarcity of hard woods is still complained of. "Leather Is firm on a slight improvement in the tone of the boot and shoe trade. Cold, stormy weather, while Interfering to some extent with wholesale distributive trade, has been beneficial to retail lines, which have made good sales or heavy clothing and footwear. Spring trade has shown a further advance nt a number or markets and the outlook is regarded as a favorable one." Jnstice Brewer Honored. LONDON. Feb. 3. Da-id J. Brewer, associate Justice of the United States supreme court, who has been to Paris for the purpose of attending the meeting of the Venezuelan arbitration tribunal, of which he Is a member, was given a seat on the bench of tho first appeal court here to-day.
