Lome, Jafl. 20. —The Republic, ifl ItixiiiiiafMng dispatches ffottt Florida, tfew Ifofk Mid Washington saya: A crisis has been reached in the Cuban War. JBecoghitiofl of belligerency of the patriot army of the United States Is imminent. Resident Cleveland is eaidtohafe prepared a pfoclatnation ^hich inajr be is3ued any time in the immediate .future. The president, it is declared, intended to recognize the insurgents last week when he learned of the recall of Marshal Campos, but under the circftfastances the executive thdnght that such recognition would be regarded as inopportune and unfriendly to Spain, and he, therefore, withheld the important document pending the appointment of a successor to Campos. Within the past 48 hours, however, President Cleveland is said to have learned that Spain, despairing of a sue* cessf ul termination of the war, had Offered to Sell Cuba to Great Britain. Rumors to this effect were circulated in the East and spread like wildfire over the country. The rumors seem to have been confirmed by dispatches from Florida. The governors of the South- era states, according to these advices, have been requested by the war department to prepare the state militiamen for immediate service. Troops are already beginning to move in Florida. The belief in some quarters is that the flying squadron of Great Britain is destined for service in American watiers. If this is so war will result. The cession of Cuba to Great Britain would be resisted by the United States to the last ditch. Official information from the White House is lacking, but it is evident that serious complications are at .hand. The Cuban Case Is Complete. . Senor Palma, head of the Cuban party in the United States, wires from Washington: "Our case is complete. The president and congress will recognize the insurgent cause." Senor Palma adds that it is not necessary that the insurgent's should hold a port, but that, as a matter of fact, General Gomez has taken half a dozen ports in the past week, leaving the Spanish army penned up at Havana. The president, it is said, will issue a proclamation immediately. Authorities agree that the executive, and not congress, should take the initiative. Congress will support the president heartily. Olney Would Have Acted Sooner. President Cleveland has hesitated to take so important steps while the official r head of the revolution in this country is enjoying'the protection of American citizenship. Secretary Olney has not felt so much embarrassment from this cause. He has been for some time in favor of immediate recognition and has been urging the president on, but Mr. Cleveland, being naturally cautious, has moved with great deliberation, The report that Spain had lost all hope of subduing the insurgents and that she was negotiating the sajle of the island to Great Britain has caused the president to take action. Might Reo'.ignlze. Cuban Independence. A report has it that the president may go beyond the original pronositapu, and recognize tb,e iadepsn^Siice of Cuba. This, however, may be taken with a large grain of ijalt, There is 9 distinction between independence and belligerency'. Belligerency can bo recognized when insurgents have established a form of government. Independence, on the other hand, according to the principle and invariable practice of the United States, is recognized "only when the legal government of another nation, by its establishment or the exercise of p"oWer, is supposed to iave received the express or implied ObfTfilgS I§ assent Of tjiejjeople.''

Senator Hill and two Xofth .Carolina Senators occupial considerable time in an exchange of compliments which were not complimentary. Senator Morgan then took the floor and made a speech in which Senator Sherman's financial views were attacked. __^ *uesd»y, .tan. 14. l*he senate continued to debate the bond bill, but without perceptible approach to conclusion. Mills presented resolutions declaring against bond issues. In the house the pension appropriation bill occupied the time. _ Wednesday, Jan. IS. During the debate on the pension bill ill the house, Mr. Grow of ^Pennsylvania denounced the president and his clerks for encroachment upon, the legislative prerogatives of congress, lie denounced Carlisle for sending a financial bill to congress and the president for having read the famous letter to Mr. Catchings on the Wilson bill just before a vote on the bill, which, he said, Was an attempt to influence the vote. Senator Mills' speech on finance, with frequent direct criticism of the president and secretary of the treasury, was the main feature of the day's session of the senate. Mr. Peffer followed with a speech against bonds and in favor of silver coinage. Thursday, Jan. 16, The discussion of tile pension bill occupied the attention of the house. General debate was closed. In the senate Peffer continued his speech on the bond bill. The Monroe doctrine received attention in a resolution by Senator Sewell of New- Jersey, declaring the limitatioas of the doctrine and plating that President Cleveland's attitude was an extension of the doctrine beyond its original scope. Friday, Jan. IT. The house has passed the pension appropriation bill, to the conslderation-df which it has devoted the entire week, practically as it came from the committee. AN AUTHORIZED ANNOUNCEMENT. General Harrison Marrle* Mrs. Dimmick After Ixmt. NEW YOBK, Jan. IB.—The fact that General Harrison had an important statement to make drew a large crowd of politicians and others to the corridors of the Fifth Avenue, hotel last night. Many of the politicians expected that General Harrison would make a declaration as to his candidacy for presidentand were disappointed when they heard that the general talked of matrimonial affairs instead of politics. At the appointed time Mr. Tibbits, the general's private - MBS. DrMMTOff. secretary, made the following statement in his room, where he received the members of the press: "General Harrison authorizes the announcement that he and Mrs. Dimmick are engaged to be married, and that the marriage will not take place until, after Lent." When the secretary finished reading the announcement he refused to say anything further. During the life of Mrs. Harrison, her aunt, Mrs. Dimmick practically governed Mr. rfarrison's household in Indianapolis and directed the household affairs of the White House during the period that Mra. Harrison was ill. At all state functions she received \vjth Mrs. Harrison. Mrs. Dimmick i$ 4.0 years Qf age, ta^. and. ft strikingly ha,u& some brunette. Noted Newspaper Woman Dead.

Uetn Scuiij All Oesti-oj-ed i« Supply thft Mllllnfet^ trade. The bird of pmv.dise tnost used in millinery is obtnini-d from the Papuan islands and New Guinea, says a writer in Nature. Mr. Wallace, ih Oescribing Ihe Paradisea apoda. Says: "Prom each side of the body, beneath the wings, fprings a dense tiilt bi long and delicate plumes* sometimes two feet in length, of the mostgolden-orange color, arid very glossy, but changing toward the tips into a pat« bfowii. This tuft of plumes can be i levatect and spread 'out at pleasure, so as almost to conceal the body of the bird." J tiles Forest bitterly deplores the (lestruction which has been going oft during the last decade. He emphasizes the fact that it )s ho longer possible tb procure BUch perfect specimens ns Were common ten years ago, since the unfortunate birds are so hunted that uone of them are allowed to live long enough lo reach full maturity, the full plumage of the male bird requiring several years for its development. Ete further states "that birds which now iiood the Paris market are for the most part young ones, still clothed in their first plum* nge, which lacks the brilliancy displayed in the older bird, and are consequently of small commercial value." Since January 1, 1892, strict regulations for the preservation of the bird of paradise have been in force in German New Guinea, and M. Forest appeals to the English and Dutch governments to follow their good example. The common sense of every thoughtful woman must at once tell her that no comparatively rare tropical species, such as the bird of paradise, can long withstand this drain upon it, and that this ruthless destruction, merely to pander to the capnce of a passing fashion, will soon place one of the most beautiful denizens of our earth in the same category as the great auk and the dodo. GIRL MINERS Introduction IN GEORGIA, of a Foreign Custom on American Soil. FOUF athletic young girls find doily employment at a small coal mine in the Mahoning valley, several miles from Sliamokin, says the Atlanta Constitution. The collierj' is owned and operated by Joseph Mans, a hardworking German, who says he has simply introduced the customs of the fatherland In having his four daughters assist him in preparing the fuel for market. The girls are six-footers, good looking and well formed, each tipping the scales at about 200 pounds. Katie, aged 20 years, has charge of the breakers; Annie, aged 10, runs the mine pumps und breaker engine like a veteran engineer; Lizzie, aged 18, drives a mule attached to a gin for the purpose of hoisting the coal from the elope, ami Mary, aged 19. sees that the slate is picked from the coaJ by her little brothers, whom she helps in the work. The girls wear short skirts, not bloomers, as might be supposed. Mans formerly worked in the mine nt Shamo- lun, but during the past 12 years, with the assistance of his wife, who runs the farm, and their daughters at the mine, he has managed to buy'this, coal luine, and a large amount of timber land besides.' WOMAN'S CAN'T. Few of the Impossibilities That Are Classed as Purely Feminine. She can't, for the life of her, make head -rior tail of a time table. She can't be jolly and appreciate the best urne going 1 , if she knows her hair is out of curl. She can't, when it's a question between Cupid and herself, help saying "No" when she means "Ye*:," and vice versa. Slig cannot, not even the most daring of her sex, scratch a match on the sole and attempt picture hanging- without battering the walls and her thumbs into pitiful condition. She can*{ help gauging a woman by 1 her clothes, even though experience has taught her that beggars sometimes ride in fine coaches, £hcs fails utterly Id wrap a parcel up' without spearing jt through and through with pins besides the cord that serves a. roan to hold jt in place, She cnn't pay a bet, not even the simple little wager of violets or bonbons, without the fiercest sort of struggle with herself to relinquish the forfeit. SUFFERING IN SILENCE, Women are tile real herbes of th <wofld. Thousands ott thousands bf tfaeitt endure the dragging tortuJ-e of the ills peculiar tb wbinattkiiid iti the silence of home. They suffer btt and btt— weeks, months, years. The story of weakness attd torture is written ia the dfaWtt features, ill the sallow SkiM, in the listless eyes, itt the lines of care and Worry ott the face. Inborn modesty seals their lips. They prefer paiil tb humiliation. Custom has made them believe tile blily hope of relief lies in the exposure of examina* tion and "local treatment." Take ten cases of "female weakness' * and in nine of tlicin "local treatment" is unnecessary, There is lio reason why modest, sensitive women should submit to it. WlftSEpFCARDUi is a vegetable wine. It exerts a wonderfully healing, strengthening and soothing influence over the organs of womankind. It invigorates ana stimulates the whole system. It is almost infallible in curing the peculiar weaknesses, irregularities and painful derangements of woman.
