General Oomaa Gives Poor Advice.
Havana, Jan. 3. General Mextuio
Gomel, from hll camp 200 miles west
ward, near Netciao, has issued a proc
lamation to the Cuban army advising
against disbanding until the proceedings
at Washington regarding the pay of tbe
insurgent troops have been completed.
It la dated December 29, and is in part
as follows :
"The moment has arrived to give a
publio explanation of my conduct and
my purposes, which are always in accord
with my sense of duty to the country I
serve. The Amer.cans. tacitly onr
allies, have terminated the war with
Spain and signed a treaty of peace. I
believed it was my duty not to move,
for any political or other object, from tbe
spot where I had drawn my sword so
long as the enemies of the army had not
completely avacuated the Island. My
presence elsewhere would have disturbed
the repose and calmness necessary to
consolidate peace nor, ought I to nave
caused the Cubans trouble by unnec
essary manifestations during the jubilee.
"The period of transition is terminated,
the army of the enemy is abandoning
the country ; the sovereignty of the great
United States is beginning, as stipulated
in the protocol, oyer all the island. But
Cuba is not yet free or independent.
Self-government is not yet constituted.
For that reason we must dedicate our
selves to bringing about the disappear
ance of the cause tor American interven
tion. "But, above everything; else, in the
spirit of justice to the Cuban army, it is
necessary that before the liberators of
the people can dissolve, as a guarantee
of order, that the debt which the country
owes to its soldiers should be satisfied.
Awaiting this result, I remain in my
present position, always ready to help
tbe woik to which I baye dedicated my
Cubans are Disarming.
London, Jan. 4. The Havana "corre
spondent of the times say s :
I have had an interview with General
Mario Menocal, commanding the Cuban
forces in tbe provinces of Havana and
Matanzas. He told me the insurgent
generals would not accept any proposals
by General Maximo Gomes calculated
to produce friction between the Ameri
cans and the Cubans, and the disarming
was proceeding steadily throughout the
IrW.n from Work.
Clatskanik, Jan., 1. The alx Japan
ese section hands in the employ of the
Astoria A Columbia River railroad, at
Rainier, were run off Saturday evening
by a gang of ruffian. The Japanese
live In an old car, located at Rainier,
and about 9 o'clock Saturday evening
four shots were fired through the car
Just bef ore tbe train from A.toria came
along. There was quite a crowd about
tbe station, some with Isnb-rns, and it
i supposed that the persons who fired
tbe shots were known to some of them,
at least, but no effort was mad to In
terfere, and when the train stopped the
crowd was shouting at the Japanese to
scare them on board the train.
Five of them boarded tbe train and
eame to this city, but what became of
the other Is not known. Superintendent
McGnire telegraphed to J. N. Rice,
sherilTat Rainier, yesterday, in regard
to the affair, and he replied as follows:
"Have a deputy at Rainier to protect
your Interests. Will go down there this
Jost where this deputy was when tbe
outrage was being committed 01 why
some of the persons at the station did
not make any effort to protect the Jap
anese is not known.
The railroad company will take steps
to protect its employes. Tbe official
say that this sort of anti-Chinese or anti
Japanese agitation at this late date is
very much out of place, and makes a
poor showing for the intelligence and
civilisation of any community in which
it is tolerated.
Tbe passing of tbe general pension bill
in the house, carrying an appropriation
of $145,000,000, without any opposition
from the democrats, south or north, is
significant. It means that the sectional
line baa dropped out. Allen, of Missis
sippi, remarked that when he entered
the house fourteen years ago pension
bills always precipitated a bloody-shirt
discussion. There was nothing of that
sort in the bouse in this case, however,
end there will not be in the senate. No
sectional contest can ever be waged
again in congress. Nobody, south or
north, will ever attempt to draw tbe
geographical line again in politics. The
conflict with Spain, of course, finished
the obliteration of the sectional line.

Washington. Jan. 1. Representative
Nelson Diagiey, ot Maine, Is critically ill
at his apartments at the Hamilton house
in this city, with an attack of pneu
monia. Because of his age, much con
cern is felt over his condition. His ill
ness dates from Wednesday of last week,
when he had an attack of the grip. He
grew rapidly worse, and last night pneu
monia set in. This afternoon it was
stated that there bad been a slight
change for the better, which was con
tinued through the evening. Mr Ding
ley is of delicate physique, is an unre
mitting worker, and has figured in tariff
legislation in the house for a great num
ber of years. He is now chairman of the
committee on ways and means, and is
the leader of tbe republican majority on
tbe floor of tbe house. His wife and
daughter are here nursing him in his
illness, while a physician is in constant
attendance at his bedside. -
8TEAMER PROTECTION WRECKED.
8he Foundered and Sank off Tillamook
Rock With a Cargo or Coal.
Astoria, Or., Jan. The steam schoon
er Protection, from leattle with a cargo
of coal for San Francisco, foundered and
sack oft Tillamook rock on the evening
of December 31. But one man was lost,
and he lost his life in an attempt to
lower a boat after it had been deter
mined to abandon the vessel.
The Protection, with a full cargo of
coal, including a heavy deckload, left
Seatt'a Thursday, December 29, at 2
o'clock. While the vessel was heavily
laden, she made fair time, and at 5
o'clock on the morning of December SO
was off Cape Flattery. During that day
the wind was light, but there was a
heavy westerly swell that seemed to
strain the vessel, but it was not until the
morning of the 31st, when the Protec
tion encountered tbe southeast gale that
had been predicted on she re, that she
began to make more water than usual.
Chief Engineer George H. Morse noti
fied Captain Erickson that it was neces
sary to use steam to work the pumps,
and the vessel was partially slowed down
to use the steam on them. Captain
Erickson then had all the available men
on board throw the deckload overboard,
but the water kept gaining.
It was not until late that afternoon
that the necessity of taking to the boats
became evident, and at the time it was
blowing a southeast gale. When Second
Assistant Engineer Ed Benson finally
left the engine-room to turn off tbe last
cocks the water was up to his chin,
Then Captain Erickson called all hands
together and told theiu that the boats
were their only salvation. He divided
the entire crew of 15 between himself
and First Officer J.
the two boats.
II . Griffin, to go in
In lowering one of the boats, First
Engineer Carver was knocked overboard
and sank almost immediately. Assist
ance was impossible.
The boats were lowered, and. Instruc
tions from Captain Erickson, both stood
by the Protection for a time, ontil she '
was seen to take a deep starboard list
and get deep in the water at the stern,
but she was not seen to actually disap
pear. As near as can be figured, tbis J
was about 30 miles off Tillamook rock.
This estimate of tbe survivors, however
is very uncertain. V
The boats soon separated, and neither
knew the whereabouts of the other, and
It was a bitter night. New Year's mornX
fng broke with tbelr boats tossing lu tbe
face of almost certain death. In tbe af-
ternoon, 20 hours after leaving tbe ves
sel, the boat of Captain Erickson sighted
a ship and headed towards it. From tbe
ship the boat was soon sighted, and the
occupant picked np and safely landed
The first thing that Captain Erickson
did on going aboard was to tell the
master that his first officer's boat was in
tbe neighborhood with seven men
The rescuing vessel proved to be the
British ship Galgate from San Francisco
for tbe Columbia river, and aa soon as
ber master heard that there was another
boat of sbipwreckeJ men near by be
sent a roan aloft, who soon reported
tbem'in sight and headed toward the
ship. The vessel was then backed and
filled, and awaited their coming, and
without an accident they were taken on
What was done to them then Is best,
told by tbe survivors. Without excep
tion, when asked about their experi
ences, they first told of the kindness of
Captain Griffiths, of the Galgate, and
bia officers and crew. After 26 hours in
the open boats they were almost dead
from cold and exposure. They were
stripped, rubbed placed, in warm cloth
ing and then given something warm to
drink and eat, and made as comfortable
as it was possible. Thev are now here,
being hospitably entertained, but their
future movements has not been deter
mined upon. Not one is injured, and
all are in good health.
First Assistant Engineer Carver, who
was drowned, signed with the Protection
in Seattle, and little is known of him by
tbe crew, except that he was an English
engineer, who bat recently recovered
his American papers.

TRAGEDY AT 8KASIDB.
Thro Men Killed and One Hart
Astoria, Or., Dec 30. The burning
of the Fulton cottage, at Seaside Wednes
day morning, culminated, this afternoon,
in the bloodiest t.agedy in the history of
this county, as a result of which three
men are cold in death and one other is
badly wounded. The dead are :
Sheriffs. W. Williams.
Deputy Sheriff James Lamers.
Deputy Sheriff A. E. Miller was shot
in the leg. .
It was considered certain by every one
that the burning of the cottage was for
the purpose of concealing a robbery, and
suspicion pointed to Charles Willard as
tho guilty person, particularly as he was " "
seen a short time after the fire coming ;
from the locality with a wheelbarrow
load oi goods.
Acting on the suspicion then aroused,
Sheriff Williams tbis morning secured a
search warrant, and in company with .
Senator 0. W. Fulton and others, went
to Seaside to search Willard's premises,
and also all the cottages of which he had
charge during the winter season.
About 3 o'clock this afternoon, ChwJ'
Williams, Senator Fulton and Deputies"
A E. Miller and James Lameis, the
latter being residents of Seaside, went to '
the cottage of Mrs. Susie Lewiston,
where Willard was living, to search it.
Willard was a desperate character,
and, after the investigation had gone so
far as to begin to fasten guilt upon him
and while Messrs. Fulton and Miller
were inside of the housa, Willard opersed
fire on Sheriff Williams, killing -hlra in
stantly, and shot Lamers through the
groin, from the effects of which he dieoV-
Fulton and Miller came at once "to
the rescue and a shot by Miller finished
Of Charles Willard, the man who
caused the trouble, very little is known.
He came to 8easide from Texas about
seven years ago, and had always been
considered a dangerous character. It
was his habit to carry a rifle and two re
volvers witb him night and day, and he
oiten remarked that be would never be
taken alive. He lived by himself in a
tent in Grimes grove, and earned a
livelihood by lookhur out for certain
during the winter.
