RETOBLiCAK, ^ ' ' ''''"'''' "„?&. *•», THE PEESIBENT ACTS PROPOSES THE UNITED STATES AS MEDIATOR Between Spain and Cuba—Actuator! Only by Friendship and a Desire to End the Bloody War — Hope Expressed that Promised Reforms Will Koi* Be Granted. CHICAGO, April 11.—A special dispatch to The Times-Herald from Wash- angton says: At last it can be stated President Cleveland has taken action in behalf of Cuba. He has made to Spain a formal proposition that the good offices of the United States be accepted in mediation between that country and her rebelli- ®us colony in the West Indies. This proposal was made in a cablegram of instructions to our minister at Madrid, Mr. Taylor, which was dispatched during the day. No diplomatic 'dispatch of equal importance has left this capital since Secretary Oluey's aoto to the British government on the Venezuela boundary question was sent to London last summer. It brings to a crisis the relations between tho United States and Spain, Tvhich have been unsettled since the outbreak of the Cuban rebellion. Contents of the Note. The note thoroughly explains tho attitude of tho United States and the reasons which have led to this action. The principal points of the dispatch are: 1. The president offers the good offices of tho United States government in mediation between Spain and the insurgents, with a view to a settlement of the trouble and to bringing about peace in the island. 2. The note recalls the correspondence between this government and Spain at the time of tho 10-years war, •when President Grant and Secretary Pish proposed mediation and the Spanish government, though declining to accept it, promised certain reforms in Cuba. The fact that the United States •was in part instrumental in bringing about that settlement, and the charge that tho Spanish government has not kept its promises is given as a reason •why the United States now has a right to be heard in this case. I'reseut Insurrection Serious. £ It is pointed out that the present rebellion in Cuba has assumed a much more serious phase than has any former insurrection, the insurgents having apparently taken possession of all of the island except Havana and a small section of country roundabout. Spain is assured of the fact that the United States is actuated by only disinterested motives and by a desire •through friendship to bring about a more pacific and satisfactory state of affairs in the island. Spain is urged to accept our good offices in the spirit in •which they are tendered, and the hope is expressed that tho Spanish government will see its way to granting reforms in Cuba. The president does not ask Spain to grant the independenca of Cuba, nor does he suggest that home rule be accorded the people of that island. He leaves all these questions of method to 'be discussed after Spain shall have expressed a willingness to accept mediation. A PURE FABRICATION. Said to lie No Truth in the Story of Interference In Cuba's Uelialf. WASHINGTON, April 13.—The story that Secretary Oluey has addressed a note to United States Minister Taylor in Madrid suggesting mediation, as reported, is pure fabrication. When the published story was called to the attention of Senor Dupuy De Lome, the Spanish minister, he said that he had received no information of the taking of such action, and that he had received no such note, either as going to Minister Taylor or himself. The report has appeared in various forms within the present week, the first statement being that the communications iad been sent to the Spanish minister. It is customary in diplomatic affairs to advise tho minister of a country as to •the course of negotiations which are proceeding with his government, whether the note is sent through him or not. William* Wiis Xot Mobhoil. WASHINGTON, April 13.—A dispatch Jias been received at the state department from United States Consul General Williams at Havana, thus effect- •nally disposing of i\ public rumor that Ihe had been assassinated and his body dragged through the streets of Havana. TURKEY'S POSITION STATED. Will Expo I Missionaries Who "I'iace Themselves in Hostility to tho Liw." WASHINGTON, April Is.—The Turkish legation has received from the sublime portu the following cablegram: "It has been falsely stated that the missionaries would be expelled. The imperial government has not taken and does not intend to take any general measure of expulsion of missionaries and Catholic priests. Those among $hem who attend peacefully to their '•business are not aad will not be disturbed. .But, surely, it cannot be the same for those who by their attitude try to disturb the .order and trauquility of the country and place themselves in hostility to the laws and regulations in force iii the euipiro. The imperial government, watchful of the maintenance ef the public security, has the duty to send them away from its territory, and, in so doing, it avails itself of & right which in all justice nobody could Contest." Han Not Weakened the Dreibund. LONDON, April ia.—A Berlin dispatch to The Times says that the press there very generally comments upon the Tisit of Emperor William to Venice »nd his reception there, and points out the futility of the attempt to make the world believe that tho disaster to the Italians at Adowa has weakened the dreibund. ' POSSESSED OF THE DEVIL Holme*' Eseuf« for tne Commliilott of His Matty Murder*. PHILADELPHIA, April ll.-The North American of this city prints what put* ports to be sentences from the conies* sion alleged to have been made by Murderer H. H. Holmes. Among other things the story says: In prefacing the sonfession, which covers in full nearly three newspaper pages writen in Holmes' own hand- Writing and detailing with a minuteness that is simply at times revolting, the arch-mutilator and author of 5J7 murders, as he admits himself to be, states With Something Like Pat lies that he does so simply that he obtain enough money to educate his boy. Holmes writes of his blood-curdling atrocities with an abandon that simply appals one. "I was born with the very devil in me, "he says. Even now he believes that the evil spirit is the guiding genuis of his destiny. He believes that' he is fully under the spell of the damned and despite the assertions to the contrary, that he is receiving the attentions of • a minister of God and is gradually becoming imbued with the spirit of forgiveness and religion, he feels that he is lost hopelessly. THE ADVANCE IN WHEAT. Traders Believe It the Beginning of n Steady Itlse in Trices. NEW YORK, April 11.—Bradstreets says: While there is no general increase in business there are several encouraging features, the main one being the advance in prices of flour, wheat, corn, oats, pork and sugar, together with that for steel billets and beams and other iron and steel products. The advance in wheat lias continued so much longer than expected that traders are again discussing the likelihood of this being the beginning of the long advance for cereals which they believe must come after the extreme depression of the past few years. Unfavorable Crop Reports from Central Western states, confirmation of previous short crop reports from Argentine and Australia, small supplies in Europe and afloat therefor, but, above all, a revival of speculative interest in wheat, are underneath cereal prices. Business failures in the United States in this week number 231, compared with 230 last week, 225 in the week a year ago. 211 two years ago, and with 190 in the first week of April, 1893. . CHARGES AGAINST MORTON. Secretary of Adrictilture Accused of Manipulating Seed Bids. WASHINGTON, April 18.—The recent closing of a contract for furnishing seeds for general distribution by the government has resulted in the filing of charges at the department of agriculture by Breslan Goodwin & Co., a Chicago seed firm, against Secretary Morton. Tho allegation that their bid, though lowest, was refused because the firm had urged the passage of the resolution providing for the revival of the distribution of seeds, notwithstanding Secretary Morton's protests. Secretary Morton and the other officials of the agricultural department made an absolute denial of the truth of the charges, and say the award of the seed contract was based on a percentage of purity and germinative power of the seeds, tested by »he department last year at a time when there was no prospect of further distribution. THE AMERICANS DOING WELL. Capture Several Finals at the C.rook Tournament.

In the high jump, Ellery H. Clark of the Boston team won the final competition. In the hurdle race, final, Thomas P. Curtis of the Boston team won. The final pole jump was won by W. W. Hoyt of the Boston team. ' THE CREES NOT WANTED. Canadian Government Protests Against Their Return From Blontaiu. OTTAWA, Ont., April 11.—After the Northwest rebellion of 1885 about 2,500 Cree Indians who had taken part in the uprising crossed into Montana and have lived there ever since. The governor of that state wants them sent back to Canada and has asked the authorities at Washington to take action in the matter. The Canadian government has protested against the proposal of Montana's governor being carried out. Waller Arrives at New York. NEW YOKE, April 13.—John L. Waller, late United States consul at Tauia- tave, Madagascar, was a second class passenger per American line steamer New York from Southampton. He stated to a reporter at Quarantine that he was released from prison in France 0:1 Feb. 20, exactly 11 mouths from the time he was sentenced at Madagascar. Rhodes Is Much iitittur.

HUBERT KEMP A Not Seven Yenrfl Old lie Sets Typo In Mia father's Office nt tfankton, tad. . Hubert H. Kemp, son of E. A. Kemp, editor and publisher of the Fmtikfort (Ind.) Leader, asserts the distinction of being the youngest oll-rottnd printer in the state, if not in nil America. Hubert is now CJ,Jj years old, and is quite small for his nge, weighing only 35 pounds. Every day he can be seen at the "case" sitting on a large dictionary on a compositor's stool, a midget among- the printing fraternity, wit.li a handful of type to distribute, or u "stick" and "rule" to "set" type. His inclination to learn the printer's trade began in 1894, when he was less than five years old, and the first practical work he did was to "feed papers" to a press, and in u few weeks he was able to "feed" the country Campbell at * speed of 800 an hour. From this achievement he naturally turned to others, and many hours were spent at the "case," where he learned his alphabet, and begged to set type, but was denied the pleasure until a, few months ago. He cannot spell a word of more than a few letters, yet he now takes "reprint" and sets at the rate o:f a galley of 22 inches long primer in a clay. He is also accurate and quite speedy in distributing, and .cufl throw in type, at more than half the average speed. ACROSS THE PACIFIC. The American Schooner Altln Made It In tho Quickest Time. According to reports received by the hydrographic office, the American schooner Aida, commanded by Capt. A. Anderson, has made the quickest, passage across the Pacific ever made by a sailing vessel. She made the run from Shanghai to Port Townsend in 20 clays, breaking the record. Few sailing vessels have crossed the Atlantic ocean, about half the distance covered by tho .Aida, in the same length of .time. According to the log of the Aida, she left Shanghai a.t three p. m., on January 14, and arrived at Port Townsend at live p. m., of February 9, having made the passage the greater part ofthe way with favorable winds, which bowled ber along at a good ra.te of speed. Estimating that she came the most direct route, she must have, sailed probably 0.000 miles, or upward of 220 miles a day, at a sustained speed of over nine knots an hour all the way over. This is considered a most remarkable record for a sailing vessel, a.ud will probably not be surpassed for a long while to come. TURTLE-SHELL ADORNMENT. William C. France Turns Ills Hobby to Decorative Use. William C. France, a retired contractor of Wooster, O., has probably the most uniquely decorated workshop in this country. Mr. France for many years has been a successful turtle fisherman, always catching them for his own use. He has about 800 shells, ranging in. size from three inches to two and one-half feet. These shells he has used in decorating his shop, and, while the effect is not very artistic, it is decidedly unique. Mr. France takes considerable pride in his collection and tells many interesting stories of the capture of a number of the largest turtles. The largest weighed 33 pounds. Mr. France otiid that the Hay he landed tlio monster he had baited his hook with an English sparrow, which had hardly touched the water before it had been seized by the turtle. Mr. France said he had a hard fight to land the creature; that it drew him into the river twice, and would doubtless have made its escape had not a friend happened along, who helped him land it. SERVED HER RIGHT. Young Lady Loses u Seat Offered Her Through nil Unkind Roiuurk. A well-dressed lady apparently about. 30 years of age walked into a crowded car on the Metropolitan elevated road shortly after six o'clock the other evening. Apparently she was not acquainted with Chicago ways. She saw a number of other ladies hanging un the straps and then made an eit'oi't to balance herself likewise. West of Canal street, where the roue! curves, she lost her equilibrium and fell against a young man who was sitting reading a paper and who hud not looked \ip. Visibly affected by her embarrassment he arose and offered her his seat. She took it and then said, angrily: "1 think it is about time." The young man fumbled in his pocket a moment and then said to her: "Excuse me, lady, but I left my handkerchief in that seat." She arose to let him get it; when he promptly resumed his seat and nonchalantly began to read again. The lady stood the rest of her journey. Long Bicycle Path Belug Pljumed. A movement which started in Indianapolis for a bicycle path between Terre Haute and the capital has been taken up in the latter city. It i$ proposed to build a path four feet wide, following the old national road, which runs through a thickly-settled country, the entire distance of 73 miles. It is proposed to organize a stock company and to distribute enough stock along the line to pay for the cost of construction. Dogs Have No Value lu Law. In West Virginia dogs have no value in law, and no man can be convicted of stealing them. But owners have protection. The other day when a valuable hunting clog was appropriated the thief was found guilty of stealing the chain and collar. Growth of Islands. Fifty-two islands have appeared (by aid of volcanic action) during the present century and 19 have disappeared— have been submerged. This makes a net gain to the earth of 33 islands.

Fire Cannot Injure the Rhopala, * Hard? *r«e of Colombia. There Is a tree of Cdldmbia* the lihopala bclorata, 6f the ord&e f rotea* ceae, which presents, says on article quoted in Current Literature.,, a most remarkable power of resistance to fire. In the district of Roliina it is customary every year, during the dry season, to set fire to the plains in order to destroy all the dry weeds that, during rains, might interfere with the growth of the young and tender vegetation. This periodical conflagration naturally produces thp most disastrous effects upon the trees, which gradually disappear without being replaced, since it is diiTJcu.lt for nn old tree to resist, and still more so for a young shoot of one or two years. A single tree forms an exception, and that is the one above mentioned—the llhopala. Small, distorted and scraggy, and having a wild and desolate appearance, this tree not only docs not sniffer from the fire, but derives profit therefrom. It gradually establishes itself in localities abandoned by other trees and installs itself therein. We have here a veiry typical case of a survival of the fittest. It, alone capable of resisting lire, witnesses the disappearaiiP'- of its rivals, and is seen to gradually encroach up:r.i an always-more extended domain. Its resistance to fire is due to its bark. The external portion of the- latter, more than than half an inch thick and formed of dead cells and fib?rs, acts like a protective jacket with respect to the more central and living parts, nnd this assures its triumph in its struggle for existence against fire. A BRIDE FOR THE ASKING. Pleasant Way of Selecting: a Wife Practiced lu Naples. In the church of Santa Maria Annunziata, at Naples, girls assemble once a year for the purpose of being chosen in marriage. On the day of Our Lady, before its altar kneels a silent row of ?>0 girls dressed in black, and with folded hands. They are orphans of the neighboring foundling asylum, and once a year those who have reached the age of 18 have n; chance of being chosen in marriage by any honest man wliose character is gcod. At the door leading to the sacristy, says the Richmond Star, stands a gray-haired priest, the head of the foundling institution. By and by a young man approaches him and hands him a packet of papers. These th'j priest reads carefully, and, being satisfied, leads the candidate toward the row of girls. The man walks slowly along the row—at last he stops; his choice is made, and he stretches out his hand. The girl rises, puts out her hand into that of the stronger by way of consent, and together they disappear into the sacristy. The ice having been broken others follow, and this goes on until the suitors are exhausted, or all the girls have been chosen. HOW THEY ARE MADE. Facts «,f IntercSt Concernlnff Strings for musical Instruments. Although many people play stringed instrnmets, few know how the strings for their favorite instruments are produced. The Neapolitan provinces maintain their superiority in the production of this article, which requires the. greatest care and Dexterity on the part of the workmen. The treble strings are particularly difficult to make, and arc produced at Naples, probably because the Neapolitan sheep, from their small size and leanness, afford the best raw material. They are formed from the small intestines, which must be very carefully scraped. The intestines are then steeped in alkaline lyeis, clarified with a little alum for four or five days, until well bleached and swollen. They a.re next drawn through an open brass thimble, a.nd pressed against it with the r.ail in order to smooth and equal the surface, after which they-arc washed, spun or twisted, and sulplmred during two hours. The strings are finally polished by friction and dried. Sometimes they are sulphured twice or thrice before the finishing process. A SPECTACULAR WIDOW. Wanted Her Photograph Talceu While Weeping Over a Tombstone. A young widow in London engaged a presumably also young photographer to take her picture while she leaned weeping over the tombstone of her "clear departed." On the day appointed the sentimental beauty in weeds went to the graveyard and at once opened the sluiees of her great sorrow. She wept and wept for hours, but he came not. Finally she went dry and home, and straightway sued the photographer for the return of the money which she had paid in advance. The artist claimed that the appointment had been vague; that he went to the'cemetery and waited three hours for her at the grave, also in vain. No, they didn't compromise by marrying each other. The judge rendered a decision against the photographer, because "the photograph, showing the undying fidelity of the pretty widow, might, if finished at the time agreed upon, have been instrumental in procuring her a second husband." At least, so says a Belgian paper. Should He Known by III* Name. A variety actor went tiown on the JJowery the other day to purchase a stage costume from one of the secondhand dealers who do theiv abound. "1 want a long ulster, loud pattern, with a big fur collar," said he. "Yes, mem friendt. S > you vas an actor?" "Well, yes. I do a turn in the variety theaters." "Maybe you know mein son. He vas in der theatrical business." "Well, J dunno. What's his name?" "Ob! he vas one of deO'Brien brothers!" Durable Wood.

LONQ Irregularities ift lAhd itttitlOfta t)tt* the Manner of Mea*nfem*nt. ' It is a commonly accepted theory that a man steps three feet, and many a, tract of land has been "stepped off" instead of measured with a chain. In the west they obviate the difficulties of surveys by the land being divided into sections, but in Pennsylvania much of the property, especially in the mountains, must still be described by metes and bounds. In one of the counties in western Pennsylvania, says the Washington Star, are two brothersy one of whom is tall and lank, the other short and fat, Many years ago they purchased a tract of mountain land calling for a mile square. They divided the labor of measuring it, one stepping off one side, the other the other side. Then they fenced it in and were perfectly satisfied until recently when suit wns brought to recover a considerable tract of the land. Each brother swol'e that they knew the measurement to bo right, and told how it had been clone. Then, as the spectators saw the short legs of the one, scarcely long enough to reach the floor when he sat in a chair, and the elongated extremities of the other, there was a general laugh, in which the judge and attorney joined. Upon surveying, it was found thn.ton« line was a mile and half long, and the other only a little over half n mile.. GRUB CAUSED GREAT LOSS. By Falling; Among Diamonds a Commotion Was Created. A salesman in one of the big Chestnut street jewelry stores recently lost a. few small diamonds through a very peculiar accident, says the Philadelphia Record. The salesman had taken the diamonds out of the big safe and was counting them in the rear office of the store, when the accident occurred. He had spread the stoncis out on a large sheet of tissue paper and was sorting them in the bright light which came down through a. glass skylight directly above him. In the woodwork surrounding the glass in the ceiling an insignificant grub worm was working- away industriously. The man below knew nothing of the existence of the worm, nor did he realize the part it was shortly to play in his affairs. -Suddenly the worm broke through the outer shell of the wood and fell plump upon the sheet of tissue paper, scattering the diamonds right and left. The salesman worked for two hours in gathering up the tiny precious stones and then found that four of the stones were still missing. This meant $15 or $20 to him, for that was what the lost stones wore worth. II i? never recovered them, but lie threw the grub- worm into the stove and watched it burn with fiendish satisfaction. SAVED BY A GLOVE BUTTON. Moments That Were Full of Peril and Seemed Like Hours. How much may depend upon a glove fastening was illustrated at one of the Monson slate 'quarries iu aj) adventure which, the person concerned would not care to repeat, says the Lewiston Journal. He was a derrick man, who stood on the brink of one of the groat chasms from which the shite rock is hoisted. His duty was to catch hold of the big hook depending from the caul of the boom as it swung over the bank and attach it to the crate to be sent back into thle pit. Standing upon the very edge he reached out to catch the hook which dangled near him. It was winter and he wore thick buckskin gloves. The hook slipped from him a.s ho Leaned out,, but caught into the fastening of the glove. The swing of the .great boom took him oil' h'is feet in an in- sta-nt and curried him out into the giddy space with his life depending on the glove's holding fast. His Miole weight was hung on that button, nnd there was a clear 175 feet of space between him and the floor of rock below. The moments that passed beforo the boom could be swung back over the bank seemed like hours to him, but lie got there at last, safe and sound. A Kick for Each Nntue. "Hang Theology" Rogers, the distinguished English philanthropist who died recently at 77, got his nickname from calling out "Hang economics! Hang theology!" a.t a school board meeting where theoretical questions hindered progress. His independent and energetic character may be inferred from this story of his youthful clays: A new boy came to school dressed in a light blue jacket faced with velvet, white trousers and waistcoat, and a turned down collar and frills. Rogers went up to him and asked him v his name. The boy replied ; "I am Charles Stuart Vane, Viscount Seahapi, and my father is the marquis of Londonderry." Whereupon Rogers kicked him three times, once for Vane, once for Saaharn, and once for Londonderry. Those Relations of Oars. A Briti&h gentleman who has recently died has said that "a man's mother is his misfortune, while his wife is his fault." This cynical harshness loses some of its unpleasantness when tha writer goes on to explain that, while one's friends are his choice, his relatives are thrust upon him, and no one is so angelic as not to confess that there are occasionally oases where the tyranny of kin is most lamentable. The scapegrace cousin, the tedious aunt, the gruff uncle who delights in humiliating the family, even the drunken father or the hoydenish sister are too well known to be denied.
