Chu'ai-.o, May 1. One of the most
popular sights on the grounds today
was the reproduction of the convent at
La Rubida. This in a fac simile, as
nearly as may be, of the historic struc
ture in which Columbus sought refuge j
after being repulsed in bis efforts to gain
the assistance of the Portuguese court.
The electric age aa ushered into lie
ing iu this last decade of the 19th cen
tury today, when l'resident Cleveland,
by pressing a button, started the mighty
machinery of rushing waters and re
volving wheels in the world's Columbian
exposition. The president said :
I am here to join my fellow citizens iu
congratulations which betit the occasion,
rnirrounded by the stupendous results
of American enterprise and activitv, and
in view of the maguiticent evidences of
American skill and intelligence, we need
not fear that these congratulations will
be exaggerated. We stand today iu the
presence of the oldest nations of the
world and point to the great achieve

ance on the score of youth. The en
thudiasui with which we contemplate

the greeting we extend to those who

human endeavor in the direction of
higher civilization. We who believe
that popular education and a stimulation

the way to a realization of the proud

here afforded us to see the results ac

exerted longer than ours in the field of
man's improvements, while in apprecia

advancement and wonderful accom

present the triumph of vigorous self

Key West, Fla., May 1. The schooner

A schooner arrived there from San 1 k

San Domingo under the direction of
General Quezadt for the southern pro

believed he will direct the expeditions
from the Florida ports for the northern
provinces. The Cubans here are enthu

that many of them are anxiously await

1'aius, May 2. The liehring sea tri

today. J. C. Carter, of counsel for the
United States, maintained that the rights
of the United States in Iiehring sea were
absolutely unqualified. He argued again
that the United States government was
justified in protecting its rights in these

Mr. Carter. The defense of the sealing ! was iu town

States was, Coudert declared, Impera
tive, and an attack on the sealing indus
try was an attack on the United State.
The United States raised seals at Priby
loff islands in the same sense that Aus
tralia raised sheep, and it was impossible
that the nurture and culture of seals at
PribyloflT islands could exist in common
with pelagic sealing. The seals at I'rib
yloff islands, continued Mr. Coudert,
were absolute property just as cattle and
sheep were absolute property.
Sir Charles Russell, of counsel for
(ireat Britain, here iutoroscd with the
remark, "Certainly not." Mr. Coudert
admitted that proof as to ownership was
impossible. Some propositions were
self-evident, although they could not le
demonstrated by proof. However, when
the seals were at the islands they could
be branded and their ears clipped.

i.r.s. MILES.
General Nelson A. Miles, a prominent
figure in the world's fair opening exer
cises, was born at Westminister, Mass.,
in 1833. He entered
the volunteer ser
vice in lSlJl, as lieu
tenant of infantry,
and in 18452 was
commissioned colo
nel. While with the
army of the Poto-
$T fanr Qj' mac he was several
times injured. He
was brevetted brig
adier - general for
meritorious conduct
at Chancellorsville and in the Wilder
ness. He was mustered out of the vol
unteer service Sept. 1st, 18ft), became a
colonel of the 40th regular infantry in
18CC. In 18i;7 he was brevetted brigadier-general
of the U. S. army. His
campaigns against the Indians Lave al
ways met with success.
During the dedication ceremonies
there was a fearful crush in the crowd
in front. Tboe in the rear pressed on
those in front to get within hearing dis
tance. These in turn pressed harder on
those before them, and so on until near
the front the jam was terrific. The Col
nmbian guards were utterly unable to
tue with the surging mass, and those
in front were pushed into the reporters'
quarter. Finally came cries of rage
and jin, and then the head and shoul
ders of a woman in swoon, with ashen
lips and disheveled clothing, was up
borne above the heads of the throng;
then the fainting form of a boy held
aloft in the sinewy arms of a stalwart
negro. It was becoming a serious mat
ter, and the blind insistence of the
eaper throng threatened death and a
panic. The attention of the people on
the stand was attracted to it. President
Cleveland watched it narrowly. Finally
