THE NEEDS OF CUBA!
CIYII, GOVERNMENT, SHOULD BE
ESTABLISHED AT ONE. '
I f h Ji"
Has Been Studying Conditions
in the Island.
NEW TGRK, -April 15. A dispatch to
the Herald from "Havana says:
Jacoh G. Schurman, President of Cornell
University, -who has sailed from, -this city
for New York, was in Cuba for 10 days
studying1 the political feltiiatlom He visited
four of the six provinces of the island,

though many told me they did not dare
to state so publicly.
"Thej-sfeat deslfleratum in -Cuba is the
immediate substitution of civil govern

government -ot Xhe Uniled- -States. But
such -a government will have no chance ot
success at home or abroad without the
guarantees carried "In the Pla'tt amend
ment, which I am fully persuaded is de
sired Jn its essential contents by a ma
jority of the people of, Cuba.
"The United States must insist on ac
ceptance ot the Piatt amendment. The
oppdsltlon of the Cuban convention must
be overcome. I "believe both ends .can be
attained by a conference between la. com
mittee of the convention and President
McKiriley. The Cubans will then state
their desires to the h'lgliest authority in
the Republic, and the very opportunity to
do so will predispose them to beconeHla-,
tory, and the tact and diplomacy of the
Presldentcomblned with the 'self-Interest
of the Cuban delegates, will. discover a
-way. either by defining the conditions of
intervention, or abandoning the Isle of
Pines, or specifying- the number of -coaling
stations, or by some other formal
concession, to reach an adjustment which
will save the face of the delegates and
tenable them to return to their political
parties bringing peaee with honor. At
tHe same time, the firmness of the Presi-
dent may be equally trusted to maintain
the substance of an act of Congress, the,
terms of whrcn!he 'Is 'reduired to substan
tially enforce. Then will follow civil
government in Cuba by Cubans and a
renewal of cordial relations with the
United States, and this consummation is
fievoutly to "be TrfBhe"d."

Berrlel, Portuondo and "Lorente were ap

tries. No information as to the commit

to, this country recently with a petition
Blgned hy 6000 'Porto Rlcans praying for
relief of the distressed conditions alleged
to exist on the Island, -presented the peti

companied by Frank R. Morrison, Secre

Iglesias told the President that the des

Hollander, BUI a Failure.
NEW YORK, April 15. Wenccslo Borda,

Commissioners, today received, the 'follow--
ing cablegram from the executive com-
mlttee of the Planters', Bankers' and
Merchants' -Association ofoPrto" Rico:
"Bill practically a failure. Business-' at
a standstill. Excise taxes produce little.
Hence, valuations ordered Increased. Em
igration continues. General discontent."
Commissioner Borda has this to say as
to the cablegram:
"This cablegram signifies that by reason
of the" Imposition of the excise taxes,
upder the' Hollander revenue law, the
production of the Island has so decreased
that the excise taxes do not produce
the revenue which was expected by Treas.
urer Hollander. The Insular 'government

Increase their valuations of the real and

ONE DEAL IS OFF.
Hill Will Not Get the St. Paul, hut
Has the Burlington.
! CHICAGO, April 15. Roswell Miller,
chairman of the board of directors of the
Chicago. St. Paul & Milwaukee Railroad
Company, asserted today that, the nego
tiations looking to the purchase of his
company by - James J. Hill were '-off, and
would not be renewed, and that there was
no doubt that Hill had obtained control
or the Burlington. Asked about the' St.
Paul deal, Mr. Miller said:
. "There.was a time when it looked as if
Mr. Hill and the interests associated with
him might obtain the St. Paul road, but
that time is passed, and negotiation's Till
not be renewed. While I am not officially
acquainted with the facts, there Is no
doubt in my mind that Mr. Morgan and
Mr. Hill have acquired the Burlington.
With the Burlington deal E. H. Harn
man, contrary to the general opinion, has
nothing to do. It is distinctively a Morgan-Hill
deal, and not a Harrlman-Hlll
, deal, ,and that is why the Erie figures so
prominently in it."
"Do you apprehend any ill effects for
the St. Paul by reason of the new alli
"Certainly not. What has-the St. Paul
to fear from a combination of the north
ern lines -and the Burlington Z .The Great
Northern and the Northern Pacific deliver
considerable business totheSt. Paul, and
get a good 'deal fronfus.' In my judgment
it would simply be idiotic for the northern
lines to make any discrimination between
their connections. As a business proposi
tion it would.be foolish, and Mr. Hill Is
too wise to attempt such a move. In any
event, the St. Paul would be In a position
to protect its interests, and would un
doubtedly do so. There is never anything
in this talk of running a system entirely
Independent. It cannot be done, for con
nections cannot be ignored. Furthermore,
the St. Paul is so peculiarly situated that
it does not depend 'for its revenue upon
through business. Its local business 'a
what pays the dividends."
Questioned regarding the St' Paul's
plans, Mr. Miller said:
"There is no foundation for the rumor
that the St Paul is going to capltallze'its
surplus and extend it into Northwest ter
ritory. There is no good reason for doing
either. We asked the Wisconsin Legisla
ture for the right to increase our capital
tock for the purpose of acquiring other
lines whenever a majority of the stock
voted to do so. This was done, not with
a view to any immediate Increase of cap
ital stock, but to pave the way for any
action which might become necessary in
the future. We have found that in the
past it has been almost Impossible to get
two-thirds of the stock represented at any
save annual meetings."
"Is it true that James J. Hill owns one
sixth of the St Paul stock, and is using it
to block- extension moves by the St
Paul?" was asked.
"There is not a word of truth in the
statement and it was never made by our
agent to the Wisconsin Legislative com
mittee. So far as I know, Mr. Hill does
not own a dollar of St Paul stock.'
THE POMONA RAILROAD FIGHT.
Franchise Granted to Salt-Xafce
Road Southern Gets" Injunction!
POMONA, Cal., April 15. The .City
Council today granted a franchise to the
San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake
Railroad -for the construction of a track
on First street over the route along
which the Southern Pacific attempted to
build Saturday. There 'was no opposi
tion to the granting of the franchise,
which will not become effective until tit
is published in the official organ next
Saturday. After that time, according to
the terms of the franchise, the Salt
Lake road will have SO days In which to
accept or reject it Everything was quiet
here today. The Southern Pacific has
made no atempt to resume the work of
building its line and the city officials
still have guards constantly on duty to
see that no such attempt it made.
The Southern Pacific has filed a pro
test with the trustees olaiming that the
city had no right to grant a franchise
over First street as the Southern Pa
cific Company obtained the land by spe
cial grant years ago. That part of the
street to which the city lays claim, how
ever, was opened as a part of the county
road by the supervisors a long time ago,
and has since remained continually open
and been maintained by the city.
LOS ANGELES. "caL, April 15. This
afternoon Judge Shaw, in the Superior
Court granted the Southern Pacific Com

callers, and would have nothing what
ever to say about the Burlington deal.
The present trip Is a hurried one, and
the party will immediately v return.

Novel Scheme Proposed "by President
of Burenu of Statistics.
NEW YORK, April 15. A special to "the
Herald from Washington says:
Instead of inviting purchasers of Ameri
can goods to come to this country and see
our wares In salesrooms or in expositions,
O. E, Austin, president of the Bureau of
Statistics, proposes that American mer
chants and manufacturers shall unite in
carrying samples right to the doors of
foreign customers In a great floating ex
position. This idea has aroused a great deal of
Interest In this country and abroad,' and
letters Mr. Austin Is receiving 'from prom
inent business men encourage the hope
that it will take practicable shape.
Mr. Austin's plan Is to have men en
gaged in different lines unite In chartering
several ships on which to Install, exhibits
of their wares, each exhibitor to be al
loted space in -proportions to the amount
he subscribes. Agents will acepmpany the
exhibits to explain them and negotiate -for
sales. As the lower holds' of the vessels
will not be suitable for exhibition pur
poses. It is proposed that they be utilized
for carrying limited stocks of goods for
immediate delivery when sales are made.
The fleet would sail' down the east coast
of South America, up the west coast,
across the Pacific to the ports of China
and Japan, possibly Australia, the ports of
the Indian Ocean and thence home , by
way of the Suez and the Mediterranean,
taking In the principal' ports df Europe
and consuming about two years.
This plan is being put into practice by a
group of exhibitors at the Buffalo Expo
'sltlon, who propose after that fair to put
their exhibits on board-a ship and make a
tour of. the Mexican, Central American
and West Indies ports including Bermu
da. A similar plan was adopted abput two
years ago by some, merchants of, Ham
burg, Germany, who sent out a floating
exposition on board a. single ship. The
I expenses pmoun'td to about $100,000, while
the direct sales amounted to $5,236,000.

NEUTRALITY OF THE CANAL
Provision for It Will Be Made in
; ft'ew Treaty.'
NEW YORK, AprlTis. A special to the
Herald from Washington says:
Specific provision for the neutrality
of the proposed isthmian canal will
be made 'In the new treaty to be
-signed . by. Secretary. Hay. and Lord
Pauncefote, British Ambassador. This
decision has been arrived at by the
President and Secretary Hay after the
most exhaustive -consideration 'of argu
ments proand cqn,- which has convinced
them that the highest interests of the
country demand the application of the
principle of neutrality. From the outset
of -the" negotiations Great Britain has In
sisted upon the principle of neutrality.
The bestinaval and military advice which
the administration has been-able to get
has shown the necessity of neutralization
OF DARTMOUTH COLLEGE.
and the views of nfllltary and naval ex
perts have been supported by distinguished
jurists. Treaties between Nicaragua and
other countries and Costa Rica, and for
eign states contain specific provisions re
garding the neutrality of the canal or ac
cording to foreign states the most favored
nation privileges. The treaty between the
the United States and Nicaragua contains
a provision that this Government "agrees
to extend Its protection to all such routes
of communication as aforesaid and to
guarantee the neutrality and innocent
use of -the same."
The-Clayton-Bulwer treaty also provided
fqr the recognition of the "general princi
ple of neutrality." Even if the Clayton
Bulwer treaty were abrogated It is held
the remaining treaties In force would
require the , amplication of the principle
of neutrality 'to the canal.
Another and most Important reason for
Inclusion of a provision declaring the ca
nal neutral, is the attitude of Nicaragua
and , Costa Rica. It is understood that
these Governments have indicated plainly
to this Government their unwillingness to
cede the right of way across their terri
tory unless the principle of neutrality be
absolutely conceded and In this determi
nation they have the support of other
Central' and South American states.
Hay and the Senators.
WASHINGTON, April 15. Long inter
views were had today between Secretary
Hay and Senators Foraker and Lodge,
supposedly with reference to the proposed
Isthmian canal treaty which is to replace
the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, as Secretary
Hay succeeds In his task of reconciling
the views of the Senate and the Admin
istration.. The talks that the Secretary
o'f State has thus far had with the Sena
tors on the subject has revealed consid
erable opposition to any treaty at all,
some senators Insisting that nothing
more Is requisite to the construction of
the canal than the abrogation of "the
Clayton-Bulwer treaty and it is still far
from certain that a treaty can be drafted
that will command the support of two
thirds of the Senate and still be reasona
bly acceptable 'to Great Britain.
Not Liable to Prosecution. .
MILWAUKEE, Wis., April 15. Judge
Eugene S. Elliott, In the Circuit Court
today, decided that Christian Scientists
are not liable to prosecution under the
state medical law. The court ruled that
the scientists can no more be held for
practicing medicine by their means of
healing by prayer than can a minister
who prays at the bedside of the sick and
receives, therefor a fee, either directly or
indirectly. The case was that of the state
against Crecentla Arrles and Emma Nich
olas, Christian Scientists, who treated a
child named Grosenback, afflicted with
diphtherlp. and who died from the disease.

A LONDON FIRST NIGHT.
Tumultuous Welcome Given Irving:
nnd Terry on Their Return.
LONDON, April 16. Sir Henry Irving
and Miss Ellen Terry received a' tumultu
ous welcome last evening at the 'Lyceum
Theater, where "Coriol&nus" was pre
sented with all the wealth of setting and
scenery for which Irving Is famous. The
house was crowded to Its utmost capacity.
The applause with which Sir Henry's
first entrance was greeted lasted fully a
minute, while. Miss Terry was received
with almost equal enthusiasm. Many
notable persons were in the house. Mr.
and Mrs. Choate, with Mr. and Mrs. W.
B. cutting, Jr., occupied the royal box.
Sir Henry gave a supper and held a re
ception, on the stage after the perform
ance, at which nearly all artistic and lit
erary London assembled to welcome him
back to his old home.
LONDON, April 15. The usual scenes
attending the reopening of the Irving
Terry season were witnessed around the
doors of the Lyceum Theater today. A3
early as 7 o'clock in the morning men
and women collected, armed with camp
stools, novels, sandwiches and flasks.
The crqwd, rapidly increased until a spe
cial police force was required to keep the
first-nighters in line.
Fear Undesirable Immigration.
NEW YORK, April 15. A dispatch to
the Tribune from London says:
The question of alien Immigration Is
again forcing Its way Into prominence.
A good many people fear that,
following the colonization of South
Africa on a large scale by men
and women of Anglo-Saxon blood
at the close of the war, there will be an
invasion of this country by impoverished
middle men, money lenders and tailors
from Jewish centers of population on the
continent. The feeling among the working
-classes of the East End of London with
regard" to the immigration of destitute
aliens is very strong. Whitechapel is
lassaiy Inhabited by Hebrews of the very
lowest class, whole streets being occupied
by an undesirable population from the
ghettos of Western Russia, Germany and
Lori St'listury, Mr. Balfour and Mr.
Chamberlain have at different times In
sisted on the necessity of preventing des
titute aliens from taking up their" abode
there, but the colonization of the country
with people who are undesirable from
every point of view except that of the
sweating employes still goes on. The
fact of the matter is, the government
has dropped the alien immigration ques
tion because they are anxious not to' lose
the political support of the Hobrews in
the os cltiee.
The Cro-wn Prince's Speech.
BERLIN, April 15. The German press
prints columns regarding the doings of
Crown" Prince Frederick William, In Vi
enna, pointing out particularly the en
thusiasm with which ne was received
there by the populace and the court. Pri
vate dispatches say that the Crown Prince
was at first somewhat shy and flushed,
being unused to such ovations, but he soon
recovered his self-possession, and at last
evening's banquet delivered his toast in
resonant tones, and with military inflec
tion. The accounts wired of the toast
itself vary, and the Vienna semiofficial
version differs from the Berlin semiof
ficial report. The latter omits the words
"comradeship in arms," and adds a phrase
about the Crown Prince's thanks for "a
