Spain's Proposal for Commercial
Privileges in the West Indies Bare
ly Touched Upon Another Ses
sion to be Held Tomorrow.
Paris, Dec. 2. The joint session of
the peace com mission today lasted two
hours. No real progress was made. The
Spaniards are awaiting instructions.
Spain's proposition for commercial
privileges in the West Indies was not
settled, and was scarcely considered to
Tbe Americans have also asked for in
structions on certain matters. The Caro

The joint commission adjourned until
What of the Maine?
The draft8of articles submitted by tbe
Spanish commissioners related to the
nationality of inhabitants of ceded ter
ritory, the jurisdiction of courts, tbe
cases pending in them, the continuing
of grants and contracts for public works,
services in the ceded territory and
One article provides that the United
States and Spain shall appoint an inter
national committee of seven experts,
each country to name one of its citizens,
one Briton and one Frenchman, and a
German to be the president. This com
mittee is to determine responsibility for
the Maine disaster. If Spain is. respon
sible she is to send a warship to salute
the American flag at New York. If she
is not, the United States is to pay all
expenses of the commission.

yielded on the main principles,- they

New York, Dee. 2. A dispatch to the

Strong island, one of the Caroline group,

New York, Dec. 2.-"-A dispatch to the

Colonel Bird so Testified Before the
War Board. 1
Washington, Dec. 2. The war inves
tigating commission resumed its sittings
in this city today, Colonel Charles Bird
being on the stand. He was during the
war in the quartermaster-general's of
fice, having charge of the transportation
division. He bad charge in the begin
ning of the war of the purchase of mules
and he believed the prices paid to have
been reasonable. t
He said that contracts for railroad
transportation were made in Chicago,
St. Paul and other centers before tbe be
ginning of the movement of troops. The
prices secured were lower than ordinar
ily, given to individuals.. In moving
tbe troops tourist sleepers had been
secured where possible, and in all cases
a seat for each soldier was, obtained.
As a rule, the railroad companies had
been prompt in responding to tbe terms
of a contract, but in some instances in
the South there had been some delay in
the manner of equipment.
The congestion at Tampa was duo to
the fact that more supplies were sent to
that point than could be bandied.
Insurance Co. Made Fifty Thousand
San Francisco, Dec. 2. An interest
ing story has come to light in connection
with Capt. J. L. White, who perished in
the Baldwin fire here;
- A local life insurance company was
under contract to pay White $300 a
month. This contract was made not
quite a year ago, so that he received but
$3600 at the outside. To insure this
monthly income the recipient paid $53.-

000 in cash, so that the life insurance
company is now nearly $"50,0C0 ahead on
the transaction. The expectancy ot life
for Mr. White was between 15 and 20
years, and tbe company therefore figured
on having the uee of his money all that
time and paying him from $54,000 to $72,
000 for it. At this rate he would be
getting a trifle less than 7 per 'cent, a
year on his money, and as he bad
abundance of means and few dependents,
was apparently making an excellent in
vestment. The chance that deprived
him of life was the good fortune of the
Work on New Railroad.
Walla Walla, Dec. 2. The Summer

veyors yesterday. They will complete

ers having quasi connection with the

over the reported attitude of the Fili

Mauser rifles, and eighteen quick-firing

Two ballets were fired, one passing

The murderess then turned the re

which it is not thought will prove fatal.

this city. She has of late been residing
