Sellin To Minor
Pashali Karapela, alleged to be 19
years of age, or less, was arrested
shortly after midnight . yesterday
morning on 1 charge of being drunk
and of being a minor found in a sa
loon. The yonth is of Greek birth and
has been m this country five years,
and at present is employed in a
restaurant The boy's brother, who
says he is two years old, being 21,
complained to Officers Thompson
and Linville that his younger brother
was drinking in the "Greek saloon
on Astor street and asked that he be
arrested. At the station the young
fellow said he is 21. and he repeated
this on the stand yesterday. But the
elder brother went on the stand and
testified that the youth was 19 years-
He looks to be from perhaps 17 to Ztt
Owing to the fact that there was this
discrepancy in the testimony and that
the officers testified that the young
fellow was not actually drunk, though
under the influence of liquor, the court
found him not guilty. No other de
cision seemed 'possible under all the
circumstances. But there is another
side to the story., One of the two
brothers perjured himself. The young
fellow who was accused of being
drunk wears the appearance that dissi
pation gives, while the older brother
who was trying to save him was
frank, smiling and good to look npon
and he didn't look as if a lie would
come easy to him either. Had the
young fellow been found guilty it
would have meant the forfeiture of
the license of the saloon. The court
room was filled with Greeks. Two
Greeks who interfered with the offi
cers after the arrest was made also
were arrested; one forfeited bail and
the other was fined $5.

A RESOLUTION IS INTRODUG
ED IN HOUSE RELATING TO
WASHINGTON', April 20.-A step
looking to the ultimate annexation ot
Cuba is embodied in a resolution in
troduced in the House yesterday by
Representative Helm qf Kentucky,
It provides that whenever a mujority
of the voters of the islauj shall vote
in favor of annexation to the United
States, the territory of the island
shall be annexed on such terms and
conditions as the proper authorities
of both countries may agree upon.
Mr. Helm, in explanation of the
"It is almost certain that the Amerl
can Sag, if it ever goes up in Cuba
again to insure the stability of govern
ment guaranteed by treaty, will be
there .to stay. This resolution anticl
pates that event and indicates the best
easiest, and most democratic way of
preserving amicable relations; and is
in accordance with the resolution
adopted when the United States de
clared war on Spain and proclaimed
that Cuba must be free. The resolu
tion, if adopted, is simply the extend
ing of an invitation and an expression
of welcome to the people of Cuban
republic. In its brightest significance
it must be so construed and under
stood b them, in that it simply addres
ses itself to the approved judgement
of a majority of the legal voters as to
whether their best welfare will be
best conserved by their becoming
useful, integral part rather than
ward of this government. There
intended to be a complete absence in
the resolution, of any suggestion of
coercion or demonstration oi power
just as there is not now an American
soldier on the island- The entire

New York Guardsmen Reach Home
Bedraggled And Weary.
NEW YORK, April 20.-Determin
ed, but nevertheless bedraggted and
limping, a tired little band of .young
men in full campaign outfit of the
New York National Guard made their
way up Broadway through the the
atre crowds last night in the drizzling
rain. Two officers were in the lead
and behind them came sixteen very
tired men and after them a dilapidated
automobile. After facing the gaze of
the curious the troops marched into
the Twelfth Regiment Armory.
The National Guardsmen arrived
here from Philadelphia after follow
ing the leadership of Captain Freder
ick C. Harriman. They were on" the
road ten days, traversing 111 miles,

ACTRESS GETS JUDGEMENT.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 20.-Lot-
ta M. Crabtree, formerly a well
known actress, has been awarded a
judgement for $46,000. After years of
litigation in the local courts.
The suit was brought against the
estate of the late Edwin Fretwell, to
have $26,000 worth of stock in the
Western Pacific Lead Company de
clared the property of the plaintiff.
The $20,000 additional was allowed at
dividends that have accumulated since
the suit was 'filed.
The Human Appetite.
Of all the whimsical, shifting, unre
liable, treacherous, exacting things 'n
the world, the human appetite for the
right thing to eat is, perhaps, the
most unreasonable and imperious.
There are those who humor it; oth
ers who defy it; and all men are more
or less inclined to treat it with con
sideration- To find a place where
these varying attitudes may be foa
tered, at the least costin each case,
and yet keep the appetite in proper
and peaceful subjection, is always
desirable information. One place that
is conceded as perfectly adapted tj
this, is the Palace Restaurant, just
opposite the Page building, on Com
mercial street, in this city. Try 't

LIPTON WILL TRY AGAIN.
Irishman Will Challenge Again For
The American Cup.
CHICAGO, Ap"rU20.-The Tribune
today prints the following special
cable from Naples:
"Sir Thomas Lipton who is here
with his yacht Erin, asks that formal
announcement be made that he will
try again for the American cup and
will forward his challenge in August
next for a series of races under uni
versal rules, with a ninety foot boat.
"I think it would be the best plan,'
he said, 'for a representative to carry
notice of the challenge personally to
the New York Yacht Club, and I will
wait the answer at my hotel. The
challenge will of course be intended
to cover a series of races under Amer
ican rules. I do not ask for English
rules, but there is no sense in cuo
rules made a half century ago.

" 'Let it be understood I have no
complaint to make of past treatment.
The best boat has always won. The
reason for my persistence is that I
want the cup. In these further at
tempts I will give good sport, even
if I lose again. I do not think the
New York Yacht Club will deny an
other contest for the cup under the
conditions I have named.
" The races will be held a year from
next Fall. My mind is made up for
a further trial but I shall not forward
a formal challenge until August. If
Americans want a race on fair terms
they may ha.ve it. My 'designers are
working on plans for my new boats."
