j Washington, Juno 1 1. The navy de
partment olllcials were singularly re
served almiit the movements of the
New Vork, ami showed a reluctance to
answer any questions. Secretary lmg,
in answer to a diiect interrogation, re
plied: "The New York is not going to
Cuba; she will next Is- heard from at
Home point on the Atlantic coast well
north of Cuba."
The secretary refused to answer fur
ther. It was learned, however, that
tin- cruiser iH expected to report next at
Hampton Loads, Va., ami that she
will be at sea about two days. It is
Hurmised that the navy department, i
which has been charged of late with
the whole duty of lis. king after fili
busters afloat, has been advised of the
intention of some formidable expedi
tion Is. mi. I for Culm to put out from
Home northern port. In such case, the
department would send out a smaller
cruiser usually, but it is said that at
thin ti it Wiis a case of choice of the
vessel able to g. t under way lirst.

liois, sought to resign. Thev I
plele.l f.mr years' service ;it the acad
emy, the last year being devoted to the
engineering branch, ami de-irc.1 to
leave and engage in private bu.-ine".
Secretary Long, however, found that
the engineer corps was sadly in need of
nfllcers owing to the rapid depletion of
the ranks of the older engineers in late
ycais, and he decided Unit an these
young men had been educated at the
expense of the government, they should
render service in return.
The cadets, upon admission to the
academy, are required to pledge them
selves to nerve the government m. ,-s
than eight yeais, so these young men
will be obliged In take the ii-ual two
years' cruise, which round" out the

Washington, June 1 1. The test vote

it was the closest vote M far tak
an issue of importance, and w
e. as allowing that any amendments
having the sanct of the can mis were
assured of adoption.
The vote was taken after a day sient
in speeches on the etlect of the sugar
schedule. The main s) , b ,,f t. ,av
came from Alli-on, m charge of the
bill, ami Wiis in the tiatuic of an an-
nvr to tl hmves made iiL-ainst the
sugar schedule as a w hole, and a defense
of It. (lorinan spoke against the nched

! Washington, Juno 12. The liepub
licaii members of the finance commit
i tee w ill withdraw the amendments for
I an additional tax on beer and for a
j duty of 10 cent per pound on tea. The
i question of revenue is giving the com
! inittee considerable concern. If there
( ollins of i (ilmuld be a withdrawal of the increase
ot Uli- ' on tobacco, the bill would not meet the
ild com- i ii,..i,js ,i4 u revenue oro.hicer. Kor tliij
reason, it has been practically deter
mined to make a bank check stamp tax.
Th" committee has agreed upon a
number of additional amendments tj
the agricultural schedule, the most im
portant of them relating to fish.
The rate on chicory root was fixed at
2'... cents per HPiiiid, the present rate
being .') cents mid the original linanco
committee rate of 2 cents.
' erning the Hawaiian treaty,
i there are several projiositioiifl under
consideration by the committee. They
include the indorsement of the Davis
amendment and continuing: the pres
ent treaty in force without reservation,
a suggestion to the president that a
new treaty should be negotiated, modi,
fving the terms of the existing agree
1 melit so as to render them less partial
to Hawaii, and a proposition looking
to the giving of a year's notice to the
Hawaiian government of the abroga
tion of the present treaty. This latter
proposition is understood to originate
with Senator A Idrich, and is antagon-
io n ny the s ial champions of Ha-
waii. The opinion is freely expressed
hy senators that the question of annex
ation will be taken up by the adminis
tration as soon as the tariff bill is
I i. killed, and three officers and 21
men injured. Indications are that the
affair is more than a conflict with war
like native", and that the notorious
Mullah of Piewin.lah is at the bottom
of the trouble.
The latent advices, however, are that
a political officer, Mr. (tee, wan visit
ing Shirani with an escort of troops,
w hen he was attacked at Manza by su
perior forces. The Hritah troops were
compelled to retreat and were followed
several miles by overwhelming numbers
of the enemy. The lighting was des
perate. All the British officers were
severely wounded. Captain Browne,
of the First Sikhs, son of the late Sir
James Browne, and Lieutenant Crook
shank, of the royal artillery, were;
killed and Surgeon Higginson, Lieuten
ant Iligginson, of the First Sikhs, and j
Lieutenant Scaton Browne, of the Pull- !
jiib infantry were wounded.
A second dispatch says Colonel dray
has taken command of the British '
i troops, and it is inferred that tolonel
' Bunny is among the dead, us ut lirst :
I announced. j
I Tochi valley lies north of (liimala, i
mid on the road to (ilinrii anil Wuzir
i islam. It has been controlled by the
British since the elimination of the
I Ilimloo-Afhgan frontier, but the tribes
have always been turbulent. The inn-
: lab of Piewimlah is a notorious fanati
cal priest, and has always been hostile
to the British.
