ADDRESSED TO SPAIN
Important Document Draft
ed by Secretary Olney. '
CLEVELAND NOW CONSIDERING IT
Speculation Rite Concerning; the Exact
Content of the Document Exist
ing: Conditions Deplored. '
St. Loms, April 10. A' special to the
Globe-Democrat from Washington says:
A document of great moment was
drafted at the state department on Mon
day and was carried by Secretary Olney,
in person, to the White House. It has
been before the president ever since.
Several times " the secretary has been
sent for and has been closeted with the
president. General Schofield, in whose
knowledge of the inter-relations of civi-
and military law the president has much
confidence, has been called to these con
ferences. The document relates to Cuba. It
marks oat the immediate course which
Mr. Olney thinks the United States
should take, and to which desires the
president to commit himself. The presi
dent has deliberated upon the matter,
and it is now thought be has reached a
conclusion which will be made known to
the full cabinet today. .
Various rumors prevail as to the exact
character of this document. There is
reason to believe that it is addressed to
the Spanish government; that it de
plores the existing conditions in Cuba,
and that it expresses the earnest desire
of this country for a speedy settlement
on terms honorable to both Spanish and
The document it is said, suggests.that
. President Cleveland act as mediator be
tween Spain and the revolutionists.
A. HUSBAND'S CRIME.
Murdered Ills Wife and Children, and
. Then Suicided.
Muskegon, Mich., April 10. News
has been received from Pentwater of a
bold attempt on the life of William O.
Sands, president of the Sands & Maxwell
Lumber Company, last . night. When
he was within a few yards of home, H.
B. Minchall jumped from behind a cor
ner and commenced shooting at him.
Sands ran across the street to his home,
the would-be assassin keeping up the fire.
Five shots .were fired, three hitting him
in the right arm and one in the leg.
Minchall immediately went home, shot
his wife and two children, and then took
his own life.
The officers found Mincball's residence
locked, and broke in the door. A horri
ble sight was presented. Mrs. Minchall
was lying on the floor of the Bltting-room
with a bullethole in her temple. Near
her was the dead body of, her . daughter,
Kuby, about 18 years old. In the cor
ner lay Minchall, with an empty revol
ver clutched in his hand. He, too, was
dead. In an adjoining bedroom were
found the bodies of George, aged 4 and
his infant brother. They were in bed
together, and death evidently came up
on them while they slept. The motive
for Minchall's crime is a mystery, but it
is thought the inquest, now in progress,
Will clear the matter.
Minchall was an insurance agent and
an attorney. He left a long letter, the
gist of which is that Sands promised him
.all his company's business and now de
manded a third of, of the commission. -
Minchall was badly involved, and his
extreme love for his family prompted
him to kill them rather than see them
BROUGHT TO A CRISIS,
President Bald to Bt Addressed a
.Note to Spain.
Chicago, April.ll., A dispatch to the
Times-Herald from Washington says
At last President Cleveland has taken
action in behalf of Cuba. He has made
Highest of all in Leavening Power.
to Spain a formal proposition that the
good offices of the United States be ac
cepted in mediation between that coun
try ..and , her rebellious colony in the
West Indies. This proposition was
made in a cablegram of instructions to
our minister at Madrid, Mr. Hannis
Taylor, which was dispatched today.
No diplomatic dispatch of equal import
ance has left this capital since Secretary
Olney 'a note to the British- government
on the Venezuela boundary question
was sent last summer. It brings to a
crisis the relations between the United
States and Spain,' which- have been- un
settled since the outbreak of the Cuban
The note thoroughly explains the alti
tude of the United States, and the reas
ons which have led to this action. The
principal points of the dispatch are :
First The . president offers the good
offices of the United States government
in mediation between Spain and the in
surgents, with a view to a settlement of
the trouble and to bring about peace in
Second The note recalls the corre
spondence between this government and
Spain at the time of the 10-yeara' war,
when President Grant and Sec. Fish pro
posed mediation and the Spanish gov
ernment, though declining to accept it,
promised certain reforms in Cuba. The
fact that the United States was in part
instrumental in bringing about that set
tlement, and the charge that the .Span
ish government had not kept its promise
are given as the reasons why the United
Stales now has a right to be heard in the
Third It is pointed out that the pres
ent rebellion in Cuba has assumed a
much more serious aspect than any for
mer insurrection, the insurgents having
apparently taken possession of the is
land, except Havana, and a small sec
Spain is assured of the fact that the
United States is actuated by only disin
terested motives and by a desire through
friendship to bring about a more pacific
and satisfactory state of affairs in the isl
and. Spain is urged to accept our good
offices in the spirit in which they are ten
dered, and the hope is expressed that
the Spanish government will see its way
to granting reform in Cuba.
The president does not ask Spain to
grant the independence of Cuba, nor
does he suggest that home rule be ac
corded the people of that island. He
leaves all these questions to "be discussed
after Spain shall have expressed a will
ingness to accept mediation.
