UowCuba Could Be Taken.
Niw York, April Hi. A Times dispatch
from Washington say:
It 1 expected the lorces used in Cuba will
consist of cavalry, lnlantry aud light artil
lery. Heavy artillery could hardly be used
iu the wet season, and, besides, it woud not
be necessary. Couaul-Qeneral Lee advises
the use of ttiese branches of tbe service In
Cuba. He thinks tbe army can successfully
conduct operation in the island during tbe
wet weather if it baa cavalry and light
batteries. Rapid-fire guns and plenty of
them will be depended upon very largely
O do the fighting. '
General Lee, it ia understood, advised the
War department that a tew good regiments
would be aulUoieut for the first movements
iu Cuba. He relies very strongly upon the
eltlciancy of the army under General Guinea
and General Garcia, which would naturally
be our allies in war. He reports that the
revolutionists bave an ellective army of
40,000 troops, which they could increase to
100,000 at almost any time if the arms for
them were found. Gomes has kept his
army in its present number because it was
too difficult to maintain a large army in the
country after ita repeated devastation, and
because 40,000 men were enough to keep up
the war and crush Spain slowly. On the
other baud, the Spaniards, bave aot more
than 65,000 to 65,000 ellective troops. If the
revolutionists are armed and a amall but
well disciplined and seasoned army from
this country is landed in the island, he
thinks the Spanish will have no chance for
Our Flag Intuited.
London, April 18.-The Malaua corre
spondent of tbe Daily Mail, telegraphing at
noon Saturday, says: . ; .
About 10 o'clock last evening (Friday) a
large group of yoang people, who bad al
ready met in another part of tbe town for
th purpose of organizing a demonstration,
arrived In front of tbe American consulate,
and began to cheer for Spain. They did
not at tbla time otter any ery against tb
United States. The chief of police en
deavored to disperse liitni, but only suc
ceeded In driving tbe erowd from tb front
of th consulate. Tb demonstration than
paraded along tbe Call tie Larses, tb
most frequented ttreet Iu Malaga, and, ac
catnpanUd by a very large crowd, reassem
bled In th Plaza de la Conttltucion.
Tbe civil governor and mayor hastened to
th i pot to calm tb people, and wer re
ceived with wild cheering, but in the mean
time another group potted therotelve op-
potite the American consulate. Tbey
carried a 8panitb banner, and after otter
lnic many patriotic cries, began to throw
alone at tbe building. All the window
wre amaibed, and a part of tbe furniture of
thecontulale senoutly damage!.
When th crowd waa at th height of ita
frenzy, a ladder wst brought and a man,
getting bold of tb American escutcheon,
threw it to the ground, amid immense
cheering. Tbe escutcheon waa then pa
raded at a trophy tbrougb tbe street, and
waa ultimately carried to the crowded
Plaza de la Constitncion, where ita appear
anoe created great enthusiasm.

tlen Philadelphia Wat th Greatest City
la the American Colonies.
In li74 Philadelphia was the largest
town in tbe American colonies. Esti
mates of the population, which are all
we bave, differ widely, but it waa prob
ably not far from 30,000. A single city
now has a larger population than all
tbe colonies possessed iu 1774, aud there
are iu the United States today 104 cities
and towns of over 30,000 inhabitants.
Figures alone, however, cannot express
tbe difference between those days and
our own. Kowa town of 30,000 people
is reached by railroads and telegraphs.
It is in close touch with all the rest of
the world. Business brings strangers to
it constantly, who come like shadows
and so deport, unnoticed, except by
those with whom they are immediately
concerned. It was not so in 1774, not
even in Philadelphia, which waa as
nearly as possible the ceutral point of
the colonies as well as the most popu
Thanks to the energy and genius of
Franklin, Philadelphia was paved, light
ed and ordered in a way almost unknown
in any other town of that period. It
was well bnilt and thriving. Business
was active, and the people were thrifty
and prosperous and lived well. Yet, de
spite all these good qualities, we must
make an effort of the imagination to re
alize how quietly and slowly life moved
then in comparison to the pace of today.
There in Philadelphia was the center
of the postal system of the continent,
and the recently established mail ooach
called the. "Flying Machine," not in
jest but in praise, performed the jour
ney to New York in the hitherto un
equaled time of two days. Another
mail at longer intervals crept more
slowly to the south. Vessels of the ooast
wisfl trafflo or from beyond seas came
into port at uncertain times and after
long and still more uncertain voyages.
The daily found of life was so regular
and so quiet that any incident or any
novelty drew interest and attention in a
way whioh would now be impossible.

Mr, Tooze waa elected by acclamation.
C. E. Cochrane of Union wa elected tem
porary Secretary, and Darwin Brittow of
Lane astistant :ecretary.
At 2:15 P. M. the Committee on Credeo-
tialt made tbeir report.
Delegate from Clackamas county were:
George J. Currin, by Dr. C. B. Smith,
proxy; J. A. Talbert, Charlea Holmao,
Tbomaa Killin, Euoa Cablll, J. G. Porter,

For a while the discussion took a wide
range. Fulton ol Clatsop brought it to a
bead by moving that each of the Multno
mah delegation be given 20 romutee to pre-'
tent it; case, a representative member of
each aide to do tba talking. Fulton'a mo
tion prevailed by an overwhelming vote,
and tbe result canted Chairman Tooze to
turn to Fulton and aay:
"So, you see, tbe Republican party ia
willing that you ahould be beard."
Chairman Toots added : "There ahould
be no factiona in the party, and after tb
aettlement of tbe Multnomah case tbarw
will be none."
' "Ob, yea, there will be," came from soma
on in the lobby behind tbe Multnomah.
Mitchellite. . . -
You are a Populist, brother," rtorted
th Chair, amid great laughter.
The Multnomah case waa presented for
the regular Republican by Senator Simon,
and for tb Mitchell men by W. T. Hume.
Hume spoke first for 15 minute. Senator
Simon followed for 20 minutes, and Hum
took five minutes to reply to Senator Simon.
Both spoke from tbe platform.
Campbell, ol Clackamas, put a new phase
into the situation by moving to amend tbe
pending motion, by providing tbat the con
testing delegationa be seated and that each
side have 30 votes, the same to be cast In a
manner to be decided upon by tbe Multno
mah delegationa. He said that be made
the motion in the interest of harmony and
good feeling. Hi idea was that tbe Con
vention should refuse to shoulder the Mult
nomah delegation, and that it should send
both sides back to fight tbe battle out.
Phelps of Morrow, seconded Campbell's
amendment in a speech, wbicb waa a plea
fur the admission of tbe Mitchellitea. He
saiil that he, in company with bia Morrow
County associates, had come instructed to
tue Congressional for Representative Ellis.
He said that tbey were bitterly disappointed
at the success of Mr. Moody, but that they
would return borne and put their shoulders
to the wheel in Mr. Moody's behalf. He as.
serted that if one faction from Multnomah
were seated, the entire Republican ticket
would be defeated in June, and the State
would fall into tbe hands of the Populists.
Cries of "No," came from all parts ol the
ball in response to Mr. Pbelp's prediction of
possible Populist success at the poll in
Moore, of Sherman, protested vigorously
against the adoption of Campbell's compro
mise motion. He said that two years ago
the convention gave both aides in the Mult-
uomah County representation in the hope
tbat tbey would come together, but now
hey are wider apart than ever.
"Seat one delegation or the otber," aald
Moore, "and let tbe unsuccessful ones fail
The vote on the Campbell motion re
sulted as follows:
Ayes, 00; noes, 133.
Thereupon tbe Mitchell delegates from
Multnomah vacated tbeir seats and quietly
left the ball. There waa not tbe least dem
onstration of any sort when they left.
The roll of counties waa now called for
members of the committee on resolutions,
and the following delegatea were chosen i
