DOES NOT AID CUBA.
The I ted Crow
a PartUan Af-
New York;, Nov.; 2. A commission
of the Spauisb,,,hranoh of the interna
tional Red Cross Society, wbioh re
cently arrived in this oity from Hav
ana, bas issued a circular letter appeal
ing to the Amerioan public for funds
to aid the work of the Spanish branoh
of tbe society in Cuba. It is stated in
tbe. oircular that the society in Cuba
lends assistance to all tbe ill and
wounded in the field, Cubans and Span
Tomas Estrada Palma, bead of tbe
Cuban junta in tbe United States, re
ferring to tbe oircular said:
"I request that it be made known
that tbe commission's claim that the
work of the Spanish branch of the so
oiaty is absolutely independent of gov
ernment control and free from any po
litical bias is not correct. Tbe Red
Cross in Cuba is entirely a one-sided
partisan society, completely under the
control of tbe Spanish government, and
none of its members is allowed to min
ister to tbe wounded or dying Cubans
on tbe battlefield.
VI challenge the sooiety to publish
over its signature a single oase in
which the Red Cross bas on any bat
tlefield in Cuba attended to the wound
ed on tbe Cuban side. I can prove by
Amerioan, and even by the Spanish
press reporters that there have been
many oases where Cnban surgeons have
nursed the wounded Spanish soldiers,
escorting them afterwards to tbe Span
"Only recently a Spanish deoree
was issued from Havana plaoing the
drug trade under the control of tbe
government in order to keep, under se
vere penalties, any medicine from
reaching Cuban hospitals. It is for
this reason that we Cubans must rely
on tbe United States for our medicines
for our ill and wounded in Cuba, and
it is to keep tbe Spanish soldiery from
assaulting our hospitals that we place
, them in the neart of tbe mountains
where only Cubans would dare tread.
"While I will not grudge tbe com
mission any amount of success tbey
may attain in their work, it is my
duty as a representative of tbe Cubans
to let tbe American public kmw tbe
true faota in tbe case of the Red Cross
Society in Cuba."

A MINISTER ACQUITTED.
Knd of a Henaatlnnal Trial
New Haven, Conn., Nov. 8. Tbe
murder case fgiinst Rev. H. H. Hay
den bas been dismissed in the court
It recalls one of the most sensational
trials in the history of tbe Connecticut
criminal court. Tbe trial took plaoe
in 1)179, and was probably as widely
discussed as any trial tbat bas taken
plaoe in the country.
September 1, 1878, Mary Stannard,
who bad been employed as a domestio
in Hayden'i house, went to her home
aud sent a letter back informing Hay
dan she would soon be a mother, charg
ing him with the responsibility for ber
oondition. On the following day she
returned to North Madison and visited
Haydeu's bouse several times, finally
telling her sister that be bad promised
to buy her medioine. Next day Hay
den left home, telling his wife be was
going to Durham, and about noon he
appeared at tbe borne of Miss Stan
nard 'a sister. Late iii the afternoon
ber body was found. An autopsy was
held, and sixty grains of arsenio found
in ber stomach, unabsorbed.
Hayden was arrested but denied all
knowledge of the murder or any re
lations with the girl. The trial had
many sensational feaotres. Tbe
strongest point in the defense was made
by the mixing up of experts on two
kinds of arsenic. Tbe jury was taken
on a speoial train to view tbe scene of
the murder and when their decision.
was given they stood eleven to one for
A Narrow Escape.
Spokane, Nov. 8. Mrs. Hendrioks,
wife of Wood Hendrioks, residing at
217b Front avenue, had a narrow es
cape from being killed this morning,
as a result of the careless blasting tbat
has been going on for some time at tbe
site of the Northern Paciflo carshops.
She had bnt a moment before arisen
from a obair upon wbioh she wai sit
ting, in the front room of tlie bouse,
wben suddenly there came a orash of
breaking timber and latb, followed by
a full of plaster from all over tbe room,
and a piece of rook weighing about
twenty pounds fell to tbe floor jnst
where she had been sitting. . Upon in
vestigation, it was found that the mis
sle had been thrown into the air from
a blast set off by Contractor Bennett's
men at tbe site of the work now going
on at the shops and carried forty rods,
when it came crashing through the roof
of Hendrioks' bouse. .
From numerous complaints made,
tbe police have several times notified
Contractor Bennett that he must be
more oareful in blasting at tbat point.
Only two weeks ago all tbe front teeth
of a tinner by tbe name of Brown, who
was at work on tbe roof of the new
roundhouse, were knocked out and bis
faoe lacerated by being struck by a
pieoe of rock thrown by a blast In
view of this last pieoe of oarelessness,
Chief Hawthorn says he will take steps
to effectually put a stop to the reckless
risking of human life.
Advice to Spain.
London, Nov. 8. Tbe Qlobe, in an
editorial tonight, says that should tbe
insurrection last much longer. Spain
would not lose much by quitting its
hold of Cuba. With the island's two
staple industries almost ruined past
mending, the termination of the rebel
lion must endow Spain with a verita
ble white elephant. For a long time
afterward she would have to maintain
an army of occupation to prevent an
other uprising, and, as tbe revenue re
ceipts wuld be next to nothing, the
Madrid treasury would have to find tbe
money. In tbe preseneo of tbis diBmal
prospect, the Globe opines that the
Spanish people would do well to con
sider the quest ion whether Cuba is
worth retaining. If it is, Spain should
ue all possible dispatoh in accomplish
ing its pacification, either by conces
sion or conquest.
A Dangerous Fasti ine.
Indianapolis, Nov. 2. The seoretary
of tbe state board of health has a oase
reported from Columbus, where a man
persisted in kissing his sweetheart who
is alarmingly ill with diphtheria, by
wbioh he also contracted the disease.
The secretary therefore wants to inter
dict all kissing, concerning which he
"I am oonivnond of tbe difficulty tbe
health board will meet in trying to
taboo kissing among sweehearts. Al
though a most dangerous pastime,
there seems to be an inherent tendenoy
to indulge in it, and we have little
hope of ever being able to do away
with it I may have to recommend a
disinfectant All tbat will be neoei

with it and rub it well on the lips.

resulting from osculation.
Olatr-M Ioeroaaina In Constantinople.
London, Nov. 8. A dispatch to the
Daily Mail from Constantinople says:
"It is rumored that tbe Armenians
have decided to poison tbe water sup-1
ply, and tbe authorities are taking rig-1
id precautions. Panics are of daily'
occurrence. The masses regard tbe in
crease in tbe price of bread as a sign
of tbe approach of war. Tb'e bitterest

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Hopkins A t'u.'s
Portland, Or., Nov. 4. While the
late wheat markets have been greatly
unsteady there is little in tbat to worry
people wbo have lo.iked for better
prices. When wheat goes up as it
went up reoently thoy should rightly
expect declines, when thoy do come
will be in a similar order. The publio
must be educated to feel, tbat 70o is
not high or tbey will run from it on
tbe slightest provocation. Tbe publio
will not be eduoated to (eel tbat a price
is not based on fanoy until it sees the
figures for more than a day. Tbe faota
that went to make the shange to a
higher level were as well established
months back as tbey were only a few
days baok. It does not yet realize tbe
true situation. It bas not been urged
nor has it been believed tbat stocks of
wheat, lately gathered, are too small to
carry the world along to another bar
vest in tbe Northern hemisphere, wben
such stocks are supplemented by the
small additions to be supplied by tbe
southern. What bas been claimed and
what is as dear as before is tbat the
world's supplies are steadily being re
duced. That is the situation and no
ruffling of the surface of prioes oan
ohange it There is nothing in the po
sition to justify advanoet of 6o a day.
On tbe other hand there is that in tbe
position to warrant appreciating values
above tbe last two year.
Legitimate conditions tbe world over
really warrant comparatively high
prioes for Wheat this year. A week's
deoline ii not a particularly disoonrag
ing feature when all the conditions are
taken into aooount. No doubt, from
now forward, there! will be short selling
on tbe bulges and reactions to follow,
but the ultimate trend of prioes should
be upward. Not with suoh leaps as
the last advauoe, but a
healthy working up of values until
such time as tbe world finds tbat an
other orop will place supplies higher
than tbis orop placed them, if suoh a
oondition does ooour.
Tbe editor of Beerbohm, in writing
of the late advance in wheat, among
other tbing, says:
"For the first time in years America
now holds tbe key to the situation.
Every bushel of wheat America oan
spare will be wanted in Europe. At
least 20,000,000 quarters (160,000,000
bushels will be wanted before the sea
son is over.
"If America oould bold baok the
wheat for a month it would go np to
ten shillings $3.50) a quarter. But I
suppose tbe American banks do not
oonsider wheat a commodity on wbioh
it is safe to give large accommoda
tions; so tbat the Amerioan trade is
obliged to send wheat on as fast as it
"The Russian shortage is nnoertain,
but it is now assumed here tbat it will
be 10,000,000 quarters. We look for
ward, on tbe whole, to an active time,
with considerable fluctuations, for the
moment trade beoomes brisk, the specu
lators rush in and influence the mar
ket" BLOWN TO FRAGMENTS.
Terrible Death of a Miner lu tho Coeur
Wallace, Idabo, Nov. 4 At Burke,
Idaho, in a cabin near tbe lower end
of the town, a dynamite explosion oo
ourred yesterday, resulting in one of
the most siokening tragedies tbat ever
happened in the Coeur d'Alenes,
Thomas Crolett being blown into small
fragments. Wben the men rushed
into the cabin, attracted by the sound
of tbe explosion, a horrible sight greet
ed them. The body and legs of Corlett
lay near a window, while blood, braini
and small pieces of human flesh were
strewn all over the inside of the
wrecked building. Tbe skull was
blown all to pieces, tbe scalp torn en
tirely off tbe back of tbe shattered
bead. Every bone was broken, both
arms torn off at tbe shoulder, and
broken into an unreoognizable mass of
flesh and broken bones. Coroner Her-
rington held an inquest, but tbe oause
of tbe explosion was a complete mys
tery. No reason for suicide being
known, it was supposed to have been,
accidental, as he was known to keep
giant powder in the cabin. Evidently
be was standing near a window not far
from the powder when tbe explosion
occurred, tho body being worse muti
lated than tbe building or furniture.
Tbe deceased was aged about 65, and
unmarried. Tbe remains will be buried
at Wallace tomorrow under tbe auspioei
i of the miners' onion.
