THE A*I. AL00NA; IOWA CLEVELAND WHEPB8 A LEtfEft IN ANSWER fO AN VifAflON t6 CHICAGO. M4 Slake* ft l?iea for Sonnd Money, Al- I*tf Ing tlte toot Wonld Be the First to Suffer Fir6«l the Proposed Changed of thfe Silver farty. * ' JtMdAoo, April iS.^Th* business tfie'nftnd citizens of Chicago Who invited President ! Cleveland to Visit Chi* caftf to attend & reception in his honor oil account of Mis attitude on the financial question are to fee disappointed. A reply to the invitation has been received and 18 in part as follows: t am much 'gratified by the exceedingly kind and Complimentary invitation you have, tendered me on behalf of many citizens.of Chicago to be their guest at a gathering in the interest ^of sound money and wholesome financial doctrine. My attachment to this cause is so great and I know so Well the hospitality and kindness' of the people of fchicago that my personal inclination is strongly in < favo* of accepting your flattering invitation, but my judgment and my estimate of the proprieties of my official place oblige me to forego the enjoyment of .participating in the occasion you contemplate. I hope, however, the event will mark the beginning of an Earnest and Aggressive Effort to disseminate among the people safe and prudent financial ideas. What is now needed more than anything else is a plain and simple presentation of the argument in favor of sound money. In other words, it is a time for the American people to reason together as members of a great nation which can promise them a continuance of protection and safety only so long as its solvency is unsuspected, its honor unsullied and the soundness of its money unquestioned. In these restless days the farmer is tempted by the assurance that though our currency may be debased, reditnd- ant and uncertain, such a situation will .improve the price of his products. Let us remind him that he Must Buy as Well as Soil) that his dreams of plenty are shaded by the certainty that if the prices of the things he has to sell is nominally enhanced the cost of the things he must buy will not remain stationary; that the best prices which cheap money proclaim are unsubstantial and elusive, and that even if they were real and palpable he must necessarily be left far behind in the race for their enjoyment. It ought not to be difficult to convince the wageearner that if there were benefits arising from a degenerated currency they would reach him least of all and last of all. In' an unhealthy stimulation of prices an. increased cost of all .the needs of his home must long be his portion while he is at the same time vexed \yith vanishing visions of increased wages and an easier lot. If reckless discontent/ and wild ex• periment should .sweep ,.our .currency from its safe support the mostidefense- less of all who suffer in that time of distress and national discredit will be the poor. ^ J. W. SCOTT DEAD. One of the Foremost Newspaper Men of the Day Passes Away. NEW YORK, 'April 15.—James W. Scott, proprietor of the Chicago Times- Herald and the Chicago Evening Post, died at 8 p. m. at the Holland House, this city, while on his way to Old Point Comfort, Va. His death was very sudden. He was taken with pains in the leftside during the .morning and*a doctor was called. He said the pain arose from the passage of a stone from the bladder, and administered morphine. At 1 o'clock Mr. Scott became • unconscious and the doctor was hastily summoned again. He found that apoplexy had supervened, probably brought on from the pain, and Mr. Scott died without recovering conscious- 'ness. Mrs, Scott and a little niece were the only relatives with him. AT AUCTION SALE. : Properties of the WhUhy Trust to Go to the Highest Bidder. CHICAGO, April 18, —The properties of the whisky trust 'will be sold to the highest bidder, Judge Showalter of the United States circuit court, in an order issued during the day, admitted that the trust no longer bad a legal existence. * Its board of directors were charged with having deserted its trusteeship, that it had no quorum and any election of new members of the board would not enable them to reaoquiesoe the property from the receiver, The court directed tha) the receiver sejl the property and that .the prope^'ds be disT trjbuted among those entitled thereto, TRIEP TO SyRN HIS FAMILY, Horrible Crime Of ft Canadian Fac]fle JSp» THE YAftRtOfo RESERVE. tl Will rroMoiy Bo June 1 Uefote ft i» Opened to Settlement. BfotJx FALLS, S. b. t April 15.—in an interview Register" Boynton of the Mitchell land office, said that there was hardly any probability of the Yankton reservation being opened before June 1. He says the Whole thing is hanging fire <in account of Commissioner Lockhart's demand that the state be allowed to file Mi 50,000 acres before the settlers get a chatice at the land. Mr. Boynton says that the report that the reservation will be opetiod immediately with the proclamation of the president is all nonsense. He says that at all times in the history of this country no lands have been opened to settlement without giving at Least 80 days notice by presidential proclamation. It Will be at least two weeks more before the proclamation will be issued, and 80 days after that will make the season so late that the Settlers cannot raise anything but corn and flax.

Largo Number of Counterfeit Twos Have Done Dttty on totters. CHICAGO, April 10.—United States secret service officials in Chicago and Washington have \inearthed probably the most unique and at the same time the most important swindle ever perpetrated upon any government. Its magnitude, after two days investigation, can only be guessed at, but it is believed thousands iipou thousands of dollars have been secured by a gang of skilled counterfeiters, who have reproduced with wonderful skill and accuracy the pink two cent stamp of commerce. It is thought the country is flooded from New York to San Francisco with these spurious stamps, and the United States has been carrying millions of letters from which not one cent of revenue was received. -•..WOULD EXCOMMUNICATE TI^EM,: JLangevln Warns Manitoba Catholics Against Favoring State Schools. WINNIPEG, Man., April 15.—A number of Manitoba Roman Catholis, among them several prominent people, have in the struggle now going on for the re-establishment of Catholic parochial schools, sided with the national school party, and one of these went so far as to go to Ottawa to give evidence before the Canadian privy council on behalf of the continuance of a national school system. The newly consecrated Archbishop Langevin spoke from the pulpit of St. Mary's, the leading Catholic church, and created a sensation by declaring that those Catholics who henceforth lent their influence or aid to the opponents of Catholic parochial schools would be excommunicated.

Cf ombet has been killed. Without these two leaders all is chaos in the insurgent ranks, and liberty's most ardent friends admit that the Cuban cause is lost. The Spanish authorities are posting bttlie« tins, and the loyalists in Havana Ate celebrating the ending of the revolution. Without Crombet and Maceo there can be no War. On Saturday the Cuban army and the Spanish soldiers met at Palmarito. The rebel forces numbered 2,000 men, while that of the Spaniards 8,000. A desperate battle followed, and according to official reports, lasted two hours, at the end ol which time the rebels retreated, were pursued by the Spanish troops attd Maceo captured. His secretary was also taken, and all the personal and private papers of General Maceo were then confiscated. The battle was a hard fought one, and the iusurgsuts iiattlcd Desperately Against Odds. The Spanish soldiers resisted with remarkable courage the onslaught of the rebels. In a hand to hand conflict, a number of Cuban officers, one of whom was a colonel, were killed. Maceo was a leader of the rebel forces with Gomez during the last revolution. Though but a youth, he achieved con- Biderable distinction. At the outbreak of this revolution, Maceo landed at Baracoa, March 81. With him were the following officers of the rebel army: Brigadier General Flor Crombet, Gen- sral Jose B. Maceo, Colonel Augustine Celerco, Patrick" Caroona, Frank Argra- tnonte, Pedro Duvergar, Jose Marti, Juan Jostiser, Joaquin Sanchez, Jorge : Estrada, Adolpho Pena, Domingo Guzman, Jose Palacin, Jesus Maria Santana, Alberto Boy, Luis Guerinel Manuel Ganda, Juan Linionta, Isidore Noriega, J. L. Jarvey, Silverio Sanchez, Luis Soler. Better Have Been Killed. Maceo's fate is known in advance. It would have i been far better for him if he had been killed, as was Crombet, than to have been brought here to Havana and put in old Morro castle's gloomy prison. He will be kept there for some time and possibly he will be given a mock trial. It is certain he will be garrotted. "We have no need of Campos and his troops now," said a Spanish officer when he heard of Maceo's caputure and Crombet's death. Consul General Williams is preparing" for an early departure, and Vice Consul Springer assumes the duties of the office at once. ; . Callej a, captain general of Cuba, who is in supreme authority until the arrival of ; ; Campos, who, by^ royal proclamation is commander r Whenever he lands, was seen at the captain, general's palace, and was asked if the news of the capture of Maceo was true. He confirmed the news of the capture of Maceo. He added that all of the filibustering was nearly at an end. Callej a seems to be highly gratified that the revolution has been put down without the aid of Campos' troops. , . "When you Americans see how easily wo can crush out the rebels here in the isla'nd, without the aid of home troops or with only a few of them, you will realize that the amount= of anarchistic sentiment in this land has been exaggerated greatly," said Callej a. "Tell 'your,-people," he added, that Cuba is loyal to Sp'ain, and that Spain has never oppressed the island as represented." Resuming the discussion of the battle at Palmarito, Calleja said that he had official information concerning the Capture of Maceo and the killing of Brigadier General Flor Crombet. He also had news that the Spanish loss was little, while the rebels have met with overwhelming'defeat. First—The independence of Korea. Second—Permanent cession of the island of Formosa to Japan. Third—Indemnity of 800,000,000 taels (Chinese coin Worth $1.83.) Fourth—Permanent, occupation of Port Arthuf and the immediate contiguous territory. Fifth—A new Japanese-Chinese treaty opening the interior of China to commerce. The money indemnity is expressed in Chinese taels instead of Japanese yen. The taol is in reality a Weight instead of a coin. It is considered silver money. While the face value at $1.83 would tte equal to $899,000,000 in silver, it is said the actual value would be between $210,000,000 and $220,000,000 in gold. Tlio fifth term as to a new treaty includes various trade features, such as free access of Chinese rivers. There is no demand for territory on the mainland outside of Port Arthur and its contiguous surroundings. WISCONSIN Soldiers* SEGREGATE CHICAGO. Plan to Practically Cut Off Cook County From the Balance of Illinois. SPRINGFIELD, Ills., April 12.—A movement was set afoot by Representative Jones of Green in the legislature which, if carried out, will practically sever Cook county (Chicago) from the state of Illinois. It was in the form of a joint resolution providing that the question of giving Cook county a separate government from the balance of the state shall be submitted to a vote of the people. The resolution recites that the rapid and unprecedented growth of Chicago renders it necessary for special laws to be enacted at every legislature. The interests of'Chicago are in many instances directly oppdsed to those of the state at large and therefore injustice must be done one section in order to benefit the other. It is therafore resolved that there be submitted to the people for their ratification or rejection at the next general election for members of the general assembly an amendment to take the place of Sec. 10 of Art. 10 of the constitution. .
