Havana, Jan. 13. Governor General
Brooke has been carefully considering
the formation of a cabinet of - civil ad
visers, and has decided to have four sec-retaries-the
first of state ' and govern
ment j the second of finance ; the third
of justice and public instructions; and
the fourth of agriculture, industry, com
merce and public works. Only promi
nent residents of the island will be in
vited to join' the cabinet.
The governor-general has received ac
ceptances from two, whose names are to
be reserved until all four can be an
nounced. One of the other two may be
a Spaniard, though it is probable that
all four will be Cubans.
The appointments will take effect at
noon on Saturday next, when the retir
ing officers will turn over to their suc
cessors their books, funds and public
belongings. There are- two Spaniards
among the appointees, Councilor Jose
'- Somona and Senor Balbino Gonzales,

Ludlow. The admonitions from Wash

done by his predecessors.

Cuban army, bad a conference with
Gen. Lee, relative to the organization
of a rural police, Gen. Lee expected
Menocal's active co-operation, but eince

whether the bodies shall be disinterred

The working men in the city are show
ing an uneasiness over the change in

the laborers on the docks have struck

New Yobk, Jan. 13. A dispateh to
the ' Herald from Manila says : The
situation here . becomes graver hourly.
The Herald correspondent visited Agui-

and Sunday- The native troops seemed
enthusiastic at the idea of an attack up
on Manila. . Oo all: the houses -are dis

Washington, Jan. 13. Army circles
this morning had scarcely recovered from
the s nock caused yesterday by the state
ment of Commissary-General Eagan.
Still, in consideration of the matter,
the officers have reached a point where
they begin to appreciate the real
gravity of the event and understand its
probable effect on the future of the
army and of its probable influence on
legislation which may be desired for
the military establishment. From of
ficers of the highest rank down, nothing
is said for publication, though general
regret is felt at the occurrence. '-
Sober second judgment of the coolest
minds on both eides, meaning the
friends of Eagan and Miles, inclines to
the opinion that no action will follow
yesterday '8 eruption. The general
feeling in the matter has narrowed down
to a personal issue between Eagan and
Miles, and owing to ' the president's
promise to protect' witnesses who might
appear before the . war investigating
commission from 'consequences of any
testimony they might give there, no
department of the government can take
cognizance of the affair. -
Up to 1 :30 o'clock neither Miles nor
Breckinridge bad ' appeared at their
offices. Eagan was at his desk as usual.
He. refused to say anything beyond
what be had given to the war commia
sion yesterday, saying, that the state-
ment was an official utterance and
fully covered bis feelings and belief.
" Chicago, Jan. 13. A special to the
Tribune from Washington says: When
General Miles was seen in regard to
General Eagan's statement before, the
war investigation commission he said
"I shall pay no attention to a man
who seems to forget that he wears thf
uniform of the United States army, and
that this dignity should .carry with it
Washington, Jan. 13. The, war in
vestigating commission today passed a
resolution censuring Eagan for the
language hie used yesterday when he
appeared to answer charges made against
the commissary branch of the army by
Miles, and returned to him the carefully
prepared typewritten statement which
he left with the commission after read-
ing it to that body. Brigadier-General
Leonarad A. Wood was the star witness
before the commission today. He
praised the quality of the much-talked-ot
beef furnished the army, and said ex
cept for some cans that were tainted and
consequently promptly " thrown away,
the beef was of good quality, and be
himself has used the meat both in the
war and in his own family. -
Washington, Jan. 13. It was gath
ered from friends ofEagan today that be
is prepared to accept the suggestion in
the letter of the war inquiry commission
and will amend his statement so as to
exclude the matter complained of.

New Yore, Jan. 13. A dispatch to
the Herald from Hong Kong says: A
steamer just arrived from Manila brings
a large number of rich, and influential
Filipinos and their families, who have
left the Philippines owing to the situa
tion there.. -r --:
The refugees state that the landing of
American troops at IIo Ho would be
treated as a casus belli, and that the
Filipino army thereupon would attack
General Otis at Manila. - : '
The Filipino government has offered
an asylum in the provinces to foreign
families, including Spaniards who are
now inhabiting Manila. - '
Bow to Prevent Pneumonia. "
You are rhaps aware that pneu
monia always results from a cold or from
an attack of. La' Grippe. .'Duriog the
epidemic of La Grippe a. few years ago
when so many cases resulted in pneu
monia, it was observed that the attack
was never followed by that disease when
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy was used.
It counteracts any tendency of a cold or
La Grippe to result in that dangerous
disease. It is the best remedy, in the
world . for bad colds and La Grippe.
