Possibility of Recognition by President
New Tobe, April 8. An informal
meeting of Cuban leaders was held at
the Hotel America last night. The pos
Eibility of Cnban belligerency being act
ually recognized in the' near future by
President Cleveland was discussed at
length. All seemed to' be sanguine of
the disposition of congress to pass a joint
.resolution which would insure action on
the part of President Cleveland.
"Mr. Cleveland," said Mr. Portnon
do, "is the great political conundrum of
the present time. We can only pursue
our unequal struggle on the island and
continue to hope. We have done that
from the beginning and have much in
the Bhape of the result to . encourage us.
"The plan of sending a commission of
Investigation to the island, sometimes
attributed to Mr. Cleveland, would prove
an absolute failure for the purpose in
tended. Such a commission, even if
tolerated by Spain, could accomplish
nothing of value, simply because Span
ish officials, when under the eye of a
commission from a civilized country,
would naturally be on their best be
havior. Tho same might, of course, be
said of our own armies, and yet we have
always welcomed correspondents in the
field and have and do court investiga

paign has been from the first, and will
continue to be, one of humanity, justice

Mr. De Armas, "is irrevocably past."-

rainy season of last summer in apparent

that the coming season will be anything

Metric System Adopted. -
WashixgtoiI, April. 8. By a vote of
119 to 117, the house today passed the
bill to adopt the 'metric system of
weights and measures, in all the depart
ments of the government, after July 1,
1896, and make it the only legal system
after January 1, 1901. - ' '' ""
Dockery moved to reconsider and C.
W. Stone moved to lay 'the motion on
the table. - - 1 '
The motion to lay on the table failed
111 to' 133. Opponents of the bill fol
lowed up their .victory by pressing the
motion to reconsider, which prevailed
141 to 99.
After this defeat Stone attempted to
withdraw the bill.
Dockery objected and insisted that
after the time spent on the bill it should
be killed outright. Stone, however,
thought a majority would vote for the
bill if it were amended in several par
ticulars, and therefore moved to recom
mit it. The motion carried 130 to 39.

THE IVORY INDUSTRY.
It Means Death to Seventy-Five Thousand
One-fifth of the world's commerce in
ivory comes to Great Britain, and it will
astonish most people, says Answers,
to learn that 15,000 elephants have to bo
killed every year to keep our markets
supplied with the precious substance.
Altogether, to keep the whole world in
ivory apart from fossil tusks 75,000
elephants are slaughtered annually.
Africa is the great ivory country ; and
in. the Congo basin, the best hunting
ground, there are supposed to be about
200,000 elephants, worth altogether
about 500,000. The average weight
of ivory obtained from o, single ele
phant is about 50 pounds. Tusks
weighing about 100 pounds each have
been procured, but this is very rare.
The most expensive tusks are those
used . in the manufacture of billiard
balls; they-cost, as a rule, 110 a 100
weight. Ivory dust and shavings are used by
confectioners to stiffen the more ex
pensive kinds of jellies. The scrapings
are often burnt and made into a paint
known as "ivory black," worth about
20 a ton.
The hardest of all ivory is that ob
tained from the hippopotamus. It will
emit sparks like a piece of flint when
struck with steel, and is principally
used in making artificial teeth.
Horses Regular at the Bath.
The horses which are used on the
Kennebec rice fields are so accustomed
to dropping through the ice that they
don't seem to mind it. They are yanked
out a little roughly, to be sure, but they
take their medicine like the chickens
belonging to the family that was con
stantly moving, which, every time they
saw a covered cart stop in front of their
house, would turn on their backs anil
stick their legs into the air to be tied
together, ready for transportation.
Another Immense Log Raft.
Preparations arc making for building
another immense log raft on Puget
sound, to be towed by sea to San Fran-
ciscoe. Last year a large raft was towed

ordinary distinction of having been the

under the application of the rule for
