. Tampa, Fla., June 14. The following
proclamation has just been received
from Cuba :
To the Cuban People: Maximo
Gomez is in command with 2000 men.
The Marquis of Santa Lucia, with the
cry of "Cuba Libre", -has joined him,
with 1500 men. Twenty of the most
noted men of Puerta Principle, accom
pany the worthy son of Camaguey.
There is no hope for 8pain. Remidos
has protected the landing of Eoloff and
his 280 men. He brings munitions of
war and 5000 pounds of dynamite. The
landing of Yeoo and Searphin Sanchez
is confirmed. They bring American
pyrotechnics. Santo Spirula has already
seven armed bands. General Maceo,
with 6000 machetros, is destroying and
burning everything he finds in his way.
Liberal Spaniards have nothing to fear.
Lives and property will be respected
while assistance is not rendered the
government. If Spain had hunted for a
general whose mission was to annihilate
the Spanish army, there is no one who
would have better suited than Martinez
Campos, who does not let the poor and
tired soldier have any rest. They die
of hunger, for they are without food or
clothing, under a burning sun in this
deadly climate. The autonomist party
says that insurrection in arms is neces
sary to force the government to favor
autonomy. Shame to these false patriots
who live on miserable bread that the
despot throws them. Soldiers from Ma
hon, a Spanish province, have come
over to the insurgent ranks. The daily
expensea ot the Spanish run up to $150-
000. Martinez Campos has lost already
10,000 men. Soldiers in the citv of Man-
ran illo die in the streets of fever and
dysentery. Famine spreads through the
province of Cuba. At Baracao and
Guantanamo there are, 18,000 insurgents
in arms. Liberal Spaniards, sons of
Riego and Pino, hurrah for liberty. To
arms and down with metropolitan gov
ernment and tyranny. Hurrah for
Maximo Gomez. Signed, Revolution

Ne w York, June 14. The boat George
W. Childs, commanded by Captain
Swan, sailed from Philadelphia, May 18,
, with a filibustering expedition, bound
for a point near Santiago de Cuba. She
put into Key West June 6 and sailed
r the next day for the Bahia islands.
where she was to take on 100 men and
2,000,000 charges of ammunition. The
Childs is said to have been watched by
the Spanish cruiser Infanta, but suc
ceeded in making her escape. An at
tempt will be made to land the men and
supplies in Cuba as near as possible to
Santiago de Cuba. The plan is to take
Marti to Jamaica, whence he is expected
to proceed to the United States. If the

Cleveland, June 16. Delegates to
the convention of fhe National Repub-
' lican League are beginning to arrive, and
bv tomorrow it is expected, there will be
an influx of strangers. Among the
arrivals today was R. C. Evans, national
. committeeman from Minnesota, and
delegate at large to the convention from
, that state. He says he thinks the con-
'vention will be the largest and most en-
tbusiastic that has yet been held, and
scouts the idea that there will be a fight
over free coinage. Mr Evans has jast
returned from the - east. Being asked
what he thought of the republican presi
dential question, he said Minnesota had
a candidate in the person of Senator C.
K. Davis, and while he was not a leader.
in the race, Minnesota republicans hoped
matters would so shape themselves before
next year as to make his nomination
prospective. ' In regard to the question
whom he considered the strongest can
didate in the race at present, Mr. Evans

Oar German Ambassador.
Washington, Jane 17. Complaints
have reached here from the American
colony in Berlin concerning the conduct
of General Theodore Runyon, the United
States ambassador to Berlin. It is said
that the New Jersey statesman has not
only violated the rules of the service and
the principles of Jeffersonian simplicity,
but has gone so far as to make the em
bassy the laughing.stock not only of the
American colony but of the Germans as
well. His latest innovation has been
a regal court carriage, wmcn ne naa ex
pressly built. - He drives through the
streets of Berlin with two flunkies bal
ancing their anatomies on a limited foot
board, the driver on a tripod, seated on
the American flag, ostentatiously spread
over his seat, with all eorts of myster
ious crests and emblems, the meaning of
which must remain a Chinese mystery
to the American voter.
The general has also resurrected an
old uniform which he uses instead of
traditional evening dress, and the Ger
man officials are in a ferment over the
discovery ttiat it does not. represent his
present rank in the regular army of the
Far Seal Disappearing-.
Washington, June 15. Captain
Hooper, in command of the cutter fleet
in Behring sea, has reported to the
treasury department that his" obsera-
tions south of Unalaska convince him
that the seal herds moving north are far
less numerous . than . formerly. This
scarcity it is believed, is entirely due to
the indiscriminate slaughter during the
last two or three years. While patrol
ling the North Pacific Captain Hooper
boarded and searched a number, of seal
ers, both Canadian and American, but
there was no evidence of unlawful killing,
hence they were allowed to proceed. It
U very probable that the maximum
catch ef the North American Commer
cial Company will be materially re
duced even from last year, when it
reached about 13.000 skins.

gates to the league convention arrived
to attract attention on the street and in
the hotel lobbies. The city is profusely
decoraded. The local committees of

be laid at the Arcade, where the banquet
will be held Thursday night. Among
those expected to respond to toasts is
Mr. Allen Foster, of Iowa, whose theme
will be "Perfidy, dishonor and political
integrity." Senator Thurston will pro

The Crathle to Blame. -
London, June 17, The board of trade,
after examining thoroughly all reports
regarding the sinking of the North Ger
man Lloyd steamship Elbe, on January
31, which resulted in the loss of about
370 lives, has ruled - that the "mate
of the Crathie, the British steamer
which ran into and sank the German
steamship, was responsible for the dis
aster, and consequently the mate's cer
tificate was suspended. , '

LOCAL NEWS MATTER
A Great Baceesa.
The Regulator was crowded again yes
terday with the friends of the Orchestra
and merry picnicers. It was the second
Sunday excursion which the boys have
given and the large number that went
shows bow great is the popularity of the
urcnestra ana me regulator. - xne day
opened rather blustering and the boat
made headway against a strong wind all
the way down. At the Locks, in the
morning, a slight sprinkle fell, just
enough to lay the dust, and then the sun
came out and made a pleasant day.
Many of the passengers attended the
dedicatory exercises of the new church,
while others wandered over the govern
ment works and noted the progress that
was being made. A large number' who
went yesterday were present on the pre
vious excursion and found plenty to in
teredt them again.
The picnic ground was the place of the
greatest attraction during the afternoon,
where the orchestra gave one o' their
famous concerts. They played for over
two hours and held an eager audience
attentive who would have, willingly
'stayed' longer. Some of the dancers
used the platform and the trip of light
feet kept time to the music. Great in
terest was taken in the program of
sports and especially in the fat man's
race. The uncertainty of the issue made
betting a little risky and it was easily
seen that this was no sure thing.- The
contestants who entered were, Mr. Butts,
Mr. Wakefield and Mr. Ostlund and a
shout of admiration rose from the ex
pectant crowd as they showed their
gladiatorial forms. . The interest was in
tense and when Deacon Butts forged
ahead and won the race the crowd wou'd
have carried him off the track had be
been a lighter man.
In the race for boys there were three
entries. The prize was won by Orville
Hendershott in an exciting finish.
The sack race always amuses the
crowd, and the frantic efforts of four
boys to both make good speed and main
tain their equilibrium was very funny.
Bert Barrett reached the goal first and
was adjudged the victor.
The boat left the Locks at 4:30, and
made quick time coming home. The
wind had gone down somewhat, and the
boat going in the same direction with it
made the up trip very pleasant. At
.Hood River a landing was made to put
ashore those who had gotten on in the
A large crowd was at the dock to
welcome the steamer back to town, and
soon the usual question, "Did you have
a good time?" was asked and answered
Everyone replied affirmatively. Capt.
MeNulty was at the wheel and brought
the steamer to dock, and many persons
were beard to remark that it was a
graceful act in Captain Wand to step
aside and let the veteran captain be in
his old honorable position. Such an
act of kindly thoughtfulness shows a
gentleman and an appreciation of Cap
tain McNultv's last words when he left
the '. Regulator of his own accord
"Whenever I can be of any use to you,
Captain Waud, blow three whistles as
you pass Mosier and 1 II come." The
name of MeNulty will be associated
with the Columbia river for many, many
yearB, and the younger generation of
steamboat men do well to honor him.
Dedication at the Looks.
The dedication of the new Catholic
church at Cascade Locks yesterday was
attended by a large concourse of people
both from the Locks and this place.
The church is a very pretty building,
56x20 feet, with a steeple. No bell has
yet been provided, but the Messrs. Day
have, intimated that they will make a
present of one to the. church. At 7:30
Rev, A. Bronsgeest held mass and . gave
communion to seven children. Millard's
mass in F was nicely sung by The Dalles
choir and a solo, "Give Me the Heart,"
by Miss Mary Mclnerny, the younger
choir- joining .in the chorus. The
Regulator arrived about 10:30 and the
dedicatory services, performed by Arch
bishop Gross, were held immediately.
The church w ate dedicated to St. Columb-
kille, an Irish saint. . Mr. Bronsgeest
has been the moving power in providing
the people of the Locks with the build-
and has devoted a great amount of time
to the project. ' '
At tbe close oi tne service Arcnmsnop
Gross and Rev. Bronsgeest were pleas
antly entertained at the home of Mr. J.
Almost a Sensation.
Yesterday Sheriff Driver and City
Marshal Blakenev received word- that
Harry Stark, who lives out in . the
country, was missing .and that he was
believed to have been foully kealt with.
The authorities searched the city high I
and low and could find no trace of the
man. In the afternoon Trixy Smith,
negro woman, was arrested and placed,
in the county jail under a suspicion of
having something to do with Stark's
disappearance. She denied knowing
anything about it, but the officers
thought it best to arrest her. Late last
night word was received frem Portland
that the missing man was there and for
the officers to drop the matter. . Stark

A Surprise Party to Mrs. Myers.
The annual session of the grand chap
ter of the Eastern Star for Oregon,
which adjourned in Portland last Thurs
day evening, was a very successful one,
showing an increase for the year of ten
chapters and about four hundred mem
Mrs. Martha E. Kellogg, worthy grand
matron elect, appointed Mrs. Mary S.
Myers, of Columbia chapter, No. 33, at
The Dalles, grand chaplain for the ensu
ing year, an honor worthily bestowed
anl fully appreciated by the members
of the chapter. On ' Saturday evening a
surprise party was organized, and a
large delegation of the members of the
chapter met at the Masonic hall and re
paired to the residence of Mrs. Myers to
congratulate her upon the high honor
conferred. Mrs. Myers was completely
surprised, and . after the object of the
gathering was made known to her and
greetings exchanged, a pleasant hour
was spent in social conversation. Some
choice music was rendered by her ac
complished daughter, Mrs. Eshelman.
"May the event prove the stepping
stone to Mrs. Myers' advancement to
the highest position within the gift of
the, beautiful order," is the wish of all
those who were present.
A Bad Scene.
Those who were at the dock when the
Regulator left this morning saw a sight
that would melt a heart of stone. Mrs.
Kimball, of John Day, had been very ill
for some time and was brought into
town to be taken to a Portland hospital
While on the dock she grew much worse
and it was clearly seen that the tnp was
useless and that death ' was hovering
near. A temporary place was fixed in
the freight house and kind hands were
ready to do what little could be done to
make the last of earth as less miserable
as possible. Shortly after the boat left
the lady was taken to the Umatilla
House. It was only a matter of a few
hours till her fleeting breath bad gone
and the grief stricken huBband, who
brought her such a great distance in the
vain hope of betterment, was left alone,
She died Shortly after 2 o'clock.
' A Wedding Yesterday.
Yesterday at noon Rev. J. H. Wood of
the Methodist Episcopal church united
in marriage, Mr. J. S. Winzler and Miss
Lura Welch, both of Tbe Dalles. The
ceremony was performed in the presence
of a few friends of both parties, who
gave the bride and bridegroom their
heartiest congratulations. Mr. Winzler
has lived in The Dalles for several years
and has made many friends by the
praiseworthy way in which he has con
ducted himself. Miss Welch is one of
Wasco county's best young ladies and
has been a teacher in our public schools
for tbe past year. She is a graduate of
the Wasco Independent academy and at

A Proper F-ndlBg.
The Chronicle made mention several
days ago of the arrest of Scott Delaney,
charged with the abduction of Maggie
Yonce, a young lady aged 16 or there
abouts. The case came' up before Jus
tice Davis Saturday and was continued
till yesterday. . Mr. Delaney had se
cured the services of Huntington & Wil
son, and the party prosecuting consult
ed Deputy District Attorney Phelps.
The matter seemed somewhat mysteri
ous, and the lawyers on both sides, in
cluding the justice, thought a better
settlement could be obtained than by a
trial. And so all the' parties in the
case being willing and especially Mr.
Delaney and Miss Yonca Justice Davis'
adjourned court over to the European
House, and there in the presence of
friends, settled the matter in the most
satisfactory way, and Miss Yonce be
came Mrs. Dalaney. The justice is
highly satisfied with the way the mat
ter turned out and was glad to lay aside
his judicial garb and appear in a minis
Mr. Phelps dismissed the complaint,
and all went merry as a marriage bell.
A Bousing Time at the Locks.
Yesteaday afternoon a party of gentle- '
men, consisting of Judge Bradsbaw,
Sherifi Driver, John Michel!, L. E.
Crowe, A. S. MacAllister, J. A. Crossen,
Frank Summers and Hugh Glenn, took
the afternoon local for the Locks, where
they attended a meeting ef the Elks.
Mr. Glenn was already a member of the
famous. society, but the other gentleman
had their first innings last night.
Messrs. J. G. Day and I. N. Day were
also initiated. The interesting part of
tbe program began after the arrival of
the Portland train, which brought a
contingency of thirty-three members
from that citv.
The exercises at the hall were highly
exciting, and the fun was great and last- '
ing. After the new - members were
shown what it was to be Elks, a sumptu
ous banquet was the scene of gaiety.
The flow of wit was said to be of tbe .
most brilliant kind, and the utmost good
feeling marked the evening's program.
The Elks are 'a body of good fellows,
anl all over they have the best of good
times. . "
There is some talk cf moving the
lodge to The Dalles, where it would in
all certainly have a prosperous existence.
The newly-made Elks returned on the
noon local, and the proper question is to
ask them to describe their sensations.
Tygh Hill Road.
To the Editor: As other roads are
being boomed we think that our Tygh
hill road should receive its share. It Is
now beingput in excellent shape by
Supervisor Frank Swift, who deserves
praise in the way he ia superintending:
tbe work. This road is not traveled ex.
tensively by tbe Crook and Sherman
county freighters, but is used by the tax
payers, who paid their taxes that helped
to build it, and .therefore are entitled to
assistance from the county. If the
county feels disposed to assist in this
good work, with the gift of a few hundred
dollars used under the euperintendency
of the supervisor, it would put the hill
in better shape than it has been since it
was built. There is some subscription
work coming in, and while the ball is
rolling let the county help and Tygh
hill road will be a credit to Wasco
county. P. W. K.
