the ex-Queen Tiad no claim on the United

simply as air act of grace.

Furor almoft caused a second naval battle
yesterday. Cendoya, the agent of the
Ward lire, with his Cuban partners, has
been engaged for "several months in wreck
lngvlhe jvarshJps.. and has. performed con
siderable work In dynamiting the Furor,
which work was difficult on account of the
depth of the water, 12 fathoms. Recently
he located. a safe supposed to contain $12,
000 in Spanish gold, and returned to find
tho "buoy Temoved. He was compelled to
come to this city for a pilot, and returned
to the wreck of the Furor ye&terdny,
where he found the American transport
Willlamd, with a diver down. A rival
diver thereupon descended, and each of
them claimed he was the flrVt to take'pos
session of He-safe. A quarrel -ensued,
and the transport's diver came up. alleg
ing that his rival had threatened him with
a knife. Cendoya's diver attached a line
to the safe, -nhich .he and his companions
claim the American officer took forcibly,
intimidating them with rifles from the
transport. Captain Parr says the line
failed to raise the safe, and that their
diver succeeded in attaching a line which
secured tho treasure., , , ,
On board the Williams were Captain
Brunt,' aa this Quartermaster in charge of
the transport; Lieutenant Hamilton, an
engineer officer, and Superintendent Fow
ler, of the Barber Asphalt Company. The
American officers disclaim any financial
Interest in the expedition. Captain Blunt
says he allowed the divers and others to
use the Williams temporarily when she
was not needed, and stood on her deck
with a rifle, which he says was not loaded,
during the nuarrel. He disclaims any in-
. tendon of using his position, his uniform
or J his arms to intimidate the Cuban
divers. Lieutenant Hamilton says he ac
companied the expedition as a spectator.
Both boats eventually-returned to the
harbor, and Cende-ya seoured -an order
from tho Court directing the police to
take possession of the safe. Fifteen
armed policemen on the tug Colon followed
the Williams, maneuvering around the
baj- for an hour. Finally the tug went
alongside "the Williams, and the police,
with drawn revolvers, prepared to board
her, when Captain Cooper, commanding
the WIHjams.. confronted them with a rifle
and annpunreeffiis Jntentlpn'to'liill Jbe first

retreated behind the pHqt-house, and the
Colo xcturned to her wharf.
Cendoya then reported the matter to De
partment Commander Whiteside, who or
dered Staff Adjutan Harford to Investi
gate -the matter Harford-and some press
representatives searched the WHHams at
midnight, nd no safe- was found. Cap

Story for Children In Omnlia Maga

In the February number of "The ChiU

published at Omaha by Grate Sorenson,
appears the ""following story, by Miss
Clara Boot.- of- Portland. Tho storv is
entitled "The Musicale pf tho Oregon
I was awakened one morning in early
Spring by a sweet serenade at my win
dow, and on looking out saw my very dear
friend Robin Redbreast a-tllt on a bough.
There came to my window one mornlnsr In
A pwcet little Robin who came there to sing-.
And the song that he sang was sweeter b far
Than e er I heard on a flute or guitar.
I said, opening the window.
No," he said, "I have come to invite

their Winter outing in tho South."
Robin knew I was interested- in his
friends and had more than once taken
it upon himself to entertain some of

crumbs on my window sill. It was no
more than right that he should be polite
enough to entertain me In return. I was
pleased to be able to go, and told him so.
At the appointed time I started over
the hills back of our city, and soon
reached the secluded spot prepared by
Dame Nature for the event. Robin, who
had the affair in charge, looked very
Important and quite stunning In his
brown jacket and red vest. A few of the
guests had already arrived, and others
wore coming all the time. Robin called
my attention to the beautiful costume
of the cedar bird, who really looked fine
in his reddlshrpurple coat and yellow
vest. Robin said he took his name from
his fondness for the cedar berry. Then

who are given to eating too much.
All the time we were talking two mag
pies near by kept up a continual fuss
and chatter, which looked as If It might
end In a regular quarrel. Robin went to
settle the matter. Theso birds build their
homes In the treetops and make them of
coarse material plastered together with
clay. They are made as nice and soft
as can be with feathers, wool apd hair,
and a roof to cover them. A little open

they must be. Whatever the trouble was
with theso noisy guests, the appearance
of two modest "quakcr-llke turtle doves
absorbed all their attention. In fact, the
whole company seemed Impressed with
these exclusive guests, whose gentle man

be members of very good -society Indeed.
As so many of the company had by this
time arrived. Robin called, the musi

Other noted songsters filled the air with

The crow asked to be excused from the
chorus, owing. , to throat, trouble, which.
was made worse by the recent severe

Dominion Tariff May-Be liOrrered, to
Tho growth of the Imperial sentiment in
Canada, as evidenced by the dispatch of
Canadian troops to South Africa, may also

that the Canadian Government proposes at
the-coming session of the Dominion Parlia

ferential tariff -of -40 per cerfC Although
the differential Is already" 23 per cent,
American manufacturers add producers

Canada with their British rivals.
A discrimination of 40 per cent in favor
of Great Britain would not be so readily
met, however, especially in view of the in
timation from Ottawa that the differential

United States has asubstantial trade with

while the British exports to Canada ag

hand. Great Britain bought gopds from
Canada to the amount of $100,000,000, while
our purchases of Canadian products were
about $30,000,000. Our tariff laws have not

ST. LOUIS, March 10. The threatened

Transit Company Is off. An agreement
perfectly satisfactory to both sides was

officials of the Transit Company and the
executive committee of the employes.
Later the agreement was ratified by a
mass, meeting of employes, and thus the
contest of the last few days ended. While
tne -men uiq not got all they asked for,
they have received substantial recogni

GERMAN MEAT INSPECTION
iVCTnOX OF THE
Commercial Treaties With, the United
States Xot Endangered Fleet
BUI Depends on tho Issue.
BERLIN,- March JO. The action of the
Reichstag yesterday evening regarding
the meat bill was eagerly commented
upon. Tho declaration of Prince Hohon
lohe and Count von Posadowskl-Wehner
had tho effect of discomfiting the Agra
rians. Some of the papfers hitherto strong
ly in favor of the committee reDort, like
the Neuste Nachrichten. now say they
are unable to call the Reichstag's action
wise. The National Zeltung rakes Count
von Posadowskl-Wehner over tho coals
becauso of his "shilly-shallying with tho
Agrarians," 'instead or flrmly declaring
tho government's Intentions. It continues:
"Count von Posadowskl-Wehner's abuse
of. those who endeavor to re-establish the
government bill, and his defense of tho
Agrarians' Insatiable greed. Is character
istic. Count von Posadowskl-Wehner
on all important occasions returns to his
first love the Agrarians and seldom
misses the opportunity to throw mud on
us. The statistics Count Pasadowski
Wehner uses to prove that the Americans
have by far the largest Interest in pre
serving cordial commercial relations with
Germany are untrustworthy."
Protest meetings against the meat bill
continue. The Berlin: -Chamber of Com
merce has called a meeting for tomorrow,
at which representatives of. all German
Industries and commerce will beT presents
To a certain extent the naval bill de
pends upon the Issue of the meat bill. The
Bundesrath will hold an extra session
Monday to consider the question of 'raising
the cost of the fleet increase.
Herr Rlchter's Fresslnnige Zeitung
demonstrates by official statistics tfcat.
the receipts of the empire are steadily
declining. 'W that for 1S93 thn Rimnn
states furnished "8.0W.O0O marks, to? the
empire to-, re-establish the equilibrium.
Herr Richter argues therewith that tho
whole of the government's calculations
about the naval bill's expenses are er
roneous, and that the cost of the fleet
must be raised by taxes.
It is semiofficially given out by the Im
perial Department of the Interior that the
preparatory work on the projected com
mercial treaties Is far advanced. All the
negotiations with each country start out
with 4he geperal.Germ.an tariff figure, as
In the case with Austrian cereals and
Russian cereals, but as the negotiations
progress the most Important articles aro
singled out as the main objects.
From Inside information It may be said
that tho Imperial Government will never
accept paragraph 14 or the meat bill.
Therefore, it is not considered that the
cdmmerclal treaties with the United
States aro endangered by yesterday even
ing's vote. There Is no occasion for
Americans to get excited
Prince Von Hohenlohe told the repre
sentative of tho Associated Press that tho

Catarrh Causes Consumption
Roxa Tyler, vice-president of the Illi
nois Woman's Alliance, speaks In high
praise of Peruna to restore tired nerves
and weak body. In a letter written to
Dr. Hartman from 310 East Sixtieth street,
Chicago, III., she says the following:
"During the past year I gradually
lost flesh and strength until ! was un
able to perform my work properly. I
tried different remedies, and finally
Peruna was suggested to me. It gave
me new life and restored my strength.
I cannot speak too highly of it.'
MIs3 Anna Carsten, Clayton, 111., says:
"Your Peruna did me so much good.
I believe I should
have been dead by
this time had I not
used It. I am feel
ing so well now.
I have not takeri
any medicine for
f6ur of "five month.
I can cheerfully

ery ono who Is afillctpd with chronic ca

sumption at any time. In the first stages
of the disease Peruna Is a sure cure; m
the later stages of the disease Peruna can
bo relied upon- to produce great benefit,

a permanent cure. AH those afflicted with
this dread dls&ase should begin at onco

Mr. W. W. Strassler. 64 West Mam

County, and spent a
great aeal of money, all
to no effect. My
friends said I could not
get well. I had about
given up all earthly

A slight cough, which, without a ves
tige 'of do'ubt, would soon disappear
with the use of Peruna, bacomes
chronic bronchitis, which requires a
persistent use of Peruna for some
time". There arc a great many cases
of consumption every ytarduc directly

which, if Peruna had been kept In the
house and used according to directions,
would have been prevented.
