HAVANA, April 19.—The appointment of General Fitzhugh Lee to succeed Consul General Williams is understood by Americans here as well as by the authorities at the palace as an adroit, way of sending a military commissioner from the states to Cuba. AVhen there was an intimation a fortnight ago that Mr. Cleveland contemplated sending a commission here to learn of what was going on, the officials at Madrid said very plainly that no military or other commission would be permitted to pry into affairs in Cuba. There is therefore some curiosity as to how General Lee will be received and as to what facilities will be accorded him for learning what is transpiring outside of the city of Havana. The Spanish officials will not discusnjiny other mission he may be supposed to have. They have got along so smoothly with Consul Williams, who has devoted himself assiduously to viewing bills of lading and allowed Americans in jail to rot there and others to be shot down and their property destroyed, that there may be trouble when a live American comes here to represent Uncle Sain.

Its prin cipal ingredients, it appears, are ozone and cod liver oil, applied by subcuta neous injection. In. the experiments of the past .five years, he explained, the greatest difficulty to overcome was that of keeping the ozone pure ana easily available.

He said the surplus for 1S95-96 was £4.210.000 and the TOT H3V*ro*r »•*»« . estifliaUid eipenditnre for the current year £100.04t,000. He said this had been a wonderful year and one of unexampled revenue, in spite of the fact that expenditures had been the largest since the great war. The surplus was the largest ever known and a larger sum had been devoted to the reduction of the national debt than ever kaov/n. The condition of the working classes, he continued, judging from the consumption of tea, tobacco and sugar, had materially improved, and it was a remarkable fact that while the decrease in exports and imports for the first six months amounted to £7,531,000, the increase for the second half year amounted to £29.228.000. Tea, he further remarked, was driviLg coffee out of the market, and British and Irish spirits Were entirely displacing foreign spirits. Referring to the estimates for the current year, the chancellor of the exchequer said the expenditures were placed at £100,047,000 and revenue calculated upon was £101,755.000. Touching upon the proposed reduction in expenses, Sir Hicks-Beach said the government proposed to reduce tho maximum land lax from 4 shillings per £1 to 1 shilling, which would absorb the rating of farm lands, devoted £443,000 for the education bill and £200,000 to a slight alteration of the death duties. This, he continued, would leave a modest surplus for contingencies. EIGHT HOUR DAY. It National Strike Will Try to Enforce in Every Big City. CHICAGO, April 18.—A special from Boston to the Record says: As a result of the eight-hour proclamation recently issued by the executive council of the American Federation of Labor, plans have been prepared for a monster strike, which is planned to extend to New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, St. Louis, and all cities where the force of such a move would be most keeuly felt. The strike will be for the enforcement of the eight-hour work day, which is now refused. President Gompers and "Vice-President McGuire, of the American Federation, have been ascertaining the strength of the unions and advance reports from them say the unions are prepared financially. It can be safely predicted that at the least computation sixty thousand .men will be involved in the strike, and if once started, the labor leaders say it will tax the resources to the greatest to prevent such-scenes as were enacted in Chicago, and, still worse, as were witnessed in the Homestead affair. t* the V«ct«*4 i* thi Athletic fcbtttesti.

TIES OF BROTHERHOOD. They Are Often Very Irksome, Saji I Novelist Howells. Perhaps one reason why people dis-| like the notion of human brotherhood I so much is because the ties of kindred! •are often made so Irksome. Societjrl holds you to account for your brothers! ihehavior, and even for his character, i \H you had invented it, or at least fav-J iored it; and his children can bring you I ;chlldren to shame by their misconduct,! though" they may never have seen on«| 'janothe"K I ', It is hardly enough,- on the other! hand, that you receive a sort of reflected! Jglory from your brother's excellence or! celebrity; you are then expected to live! ,up to him, and that may be another! hardship if you have not his talent or I temperament. You feel that you an I jfitly answerable for your son in a meas-1 ure, though his great-grandfather on! 'the other side, if he could be got-at; I might sometimes be much more Justin made to suffer; but you do not feel thitf : you are fitly answerable for your ( brother, and you feel that it is cruelbfI society to hold you. so. If he Is stupid I or tiresome, people will shrink from I you, as if you partook of his character! ihecause: you .partake of ^is- origiaj •Often you do partake of his character.! Brothers are often alike; but often thejj 'are intensely unlike In tastes, habits;] manners, dispositions, temperaments. I Often you s_«u» be truly the brother, of a man whom you have met rather! late in life, and whom you like because ;he is of kindred nature, while in your heart you may fail'to like the brother! who is merely of kindred origin. Yet'-l if one 'allowed the brother of one's] blood to come to want or disgrace, sod- 1 ety would hold one infamous. If Hi ; were the brother of one's soul, ciety would have nothing to say.
