Jose Marti, twice banished from Cube,
because of his hate to Spanish domina

commanded tlie eastern wing of the
Cuban rebels in tlw revolution of 18i8,
left New York two weeks ago for Vera

The insurgent forces in Matanias, near
Ybarra, where one wing of the patriot
party raised ita standaJd, are under the
command of Major-General Julio San
guily. The (xjirit mentioned is about
1 60 miles east of Havana, on the west end
of the island. '
The scene of the other uprising men
tioned in the Havana dispatches, Guan
tanatno, is on the east end of the island,
and the fact that these widely separated
places are given prominence is accepted
by Cubans in New York to mean that
the Spanish authorities are attempting
to belittle its extent.
The revolutionary forces in the east
ern section of the island which includes
Gunntanamo, are commanded by Brigadier-General
Guillermo Moncada. It is
estimated that he csn raise 4000 men.
The Spanish forces number about 18,000
regulars, of which about 6000 are
stationed at Santiago de Cuba, and are
within reach of the rebels at Guantan-
amo. Hie bulk ot the remaining Span
ish troops are stationed at Havana, and
so are near the scene of General San
guily's starting point, Ybarra.
Men who are high in the councils of
the Cuban party, and who were instruc
ted with the date set for the uprising say
that the arms which have been smug
gled into Cuba during the last few weeks
and which were landed near Mutanzas
and other points, and those which are
already in the possession of the patriot
forces of General Gomel, would be able
to arm 3000 men at once and many more
within a short time.

guests of honor at the funeral services of
the late Fred Douglass were Justice Har

Sherman and Hoar and a number of
memoers oi me notise. ine choir ren
dered "Nearer, My God, to Thee," and
"In Thy Cleft, O Rock of Ages." The
funeral sermon was delivered by Rev.
Dr. Jenifer of the Episcopal church.
Speaking 'as a long time pastor of Doug

"Mr. Douglans was a Christian. He
broke with the American Christian dot!
mas and wbea he saw that it sanctioned
and sustained the enslavement and bond
age of a brother he held Christ to be
above creed and above chorch. In this
terrific soul-conflict, he blundered into
bewilderment, but his deliverance came
and he has spoken to me of the joy of his
soul in God . "
A touching incident of the service was
the tribute paid Mr.. Douglass by John
Hutchinson of Boston, who,' himself an
extremely aged man, with a snow white
beard and long white locks, reachingj

many an audience in New England and
abroad against the eyu of slavery. He
made a few reminiscent remarks and

The Wife Deliberately Murdered by tha Hus
band Who Then B boots Himealf.
Chgiialis, Wash, Feb. 25 J. A.
Phillips, a logger about 35 years old,
shot and killed his wife, Estella, at Cen
trulia about 4 o'clock this afternoon.
After writing a note explaining the
the cause of the tragedy, he blew out his
own brains. Both died within an hour.
The affair grew out of Fhillips' jealousy
of bis wife. Phillips had been at a log
ging camp during the week and returned
unexpectedly. Shortly after his arrival
his wife came from town accompanied
by a young man named Jap Bowen.
She went into the house leaving Bowen
at the gate, apparently to reconnoitre.
She had scarcely got in before a neigh
bor heard shots. Phillips stood in the
doorway with a revolver pointing at
Bowen, who was running away and'
three more shots were beard. The
neighbors rushed to the house and broke
in the door, which was locked. Mrs.
Phillips lay gasping in a pool of blood
on the floor. She had been shot in the
arm and again through tlie left temple.
Alaska's Governor Talks.
San Feancisco, Feb. 23 James
Sheakley, governor of Alaska, has just
arrived from Washington, whither he
went for the purpose of looking after cer
tain proposed legislation In the interest
of the northern territory. In an inter
view he said : "My visit to Washington
was for the purpose of filling mv annual
report, and, incidentally, to offer some
suggestions with reference to legislation
intended to affect our territory. , We are
so iar irom me nation itseil, and our
conditions and requirements are so
different from those of other territories,
that it is quite necessary for some one
familiar with the country to confer with
the heads of departments at Washinston
as well as with the members of both
branches of congress. Legislation which
may appear to people down here as
beneficial might work no end of harm
up there, and vice versa. Among other
things I have nrged the adoption of
high liquor license in, the territory in
preference to the present prohibitory
law. The latter is practically inopera
tive, because of the extent to which
smuggling has been developed. The
territory is so vast and the opportunities
for the nefarious business bo encourag
ing that it is almost impossible to check
the traffic. The most harmful feature.
however, is the tendency the success of
the smugglers has toward teaching the
natives to disrespect the government's
regulations. I think that by licensing
the traffic we could keep it better in

out a keel boat, an improved Colonia,

Tobin bronze plates on steel frames.
She will be 89 feet on the water line
and about 24 feet beam and over two
feet more draft.
The lead keel is about 30 feet long on
top, 5 feet 6 inches deep at its center and
tapers away gradually to a point both
forward and aft. It is some two feet
across at the top and is slightly bulged
st the bottom.. The Colonia was about
130 feet over all.
The new boat will be considerably less
by reason of the shortening of the for
ward overhang and making of the stem,
whose contour above water is very
much like that ef Valkyrie 11, the
challenger for the cup of 1803.
After the overhang it is about as long
as the other Herreshoff boats and the
rudder is bung on a stern post, but
somewhat wider than nsnal, since it
only runs to the top of lead keel and. not
to the bottom, as usual.
She is a keel boat, as was expected,
but she slowly approaches a fin-keel so
as not to cut away as much forward and
aft as waa confidently expected. Still,
she is more of a fitvkeel than the Colonia
and is an undoubted improvement on
that boat, with greater draft, shorter
keel and evident provision for quickness
With the same beam as the Colonia,
the new boat has four feet more of water
length, which should allow of filling out
of lines and better model all around.
Summed op, the model as compared
with the Colonia shows easier lines.

Washington, Feb. 25. Thai National
Council of Women convened here at IP
o'clock. Mrs. Sewall occupied the chair.
Equal pay for equal work was one of
the themes for the morning session.
Josefa Humpal Zeman, of Chicago, made
a 10-minute talk on the relation between
foreign and national elements in our
country. Henrietta A. Keyser briefly
reviewed the same subject. Harriet A.
Shinn, of Illinois, spoke of financial
dependency, or family poverty. She
dwelt upon the subject of women as a
factor in modern business, and declared
that women would remain there.
"Industry" and "Politics" were the
subjects discussed at the evening session.
The members ot the N&tional Association .
of women Stenographers debating the
former topic and the Women's Republi
can Association of tlie United States the
latter. Helen Varwick Hoswell, of New
York, spoke of the efforts of women
against the Tammany tiger. She declared
that the question of "The Lady or the
Tiger" had been overwhelmingly settled
by the New York public in favor of the
lady. Blmetalism was the last topic con
sidered, Miss Emily Sheldon discussing
it from a free silver, and Mrs. A. Burke
from a gold standard standpoint.
The exposure to all sorts and condi
tions of weather that a lumberman ia
called upon to endure in the camps, often
produces severe colds which, if not
promptly checked, result in congestion
or pneumonia. Mr. J. U. Davenport,
ex manager of the Fort Bragg Redwood
Co., an immense institution at Fort
Bragg, Cal., says they sell large quanti
ties of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy at
the company's Btore and that he haa
himself used this remedy for a severe
cold and obtained immediate relief. This
medicine prevents any tendency of a cold
toward pneumonia and injures a prompt
recovery. For sale by G. A. Harding,
