TO BE FILLED
Vest Point Appointments to Is Maie by
List Will Include Eight Cadets, all of
Whom Must Enter West Point
Next June No Further Vacancies
to be Filled Until 1900, When Fifty
eight Will be Named.
New Yobk, Jan. 18. A dispatch to
the Tribune from Washington says :
There are a number of vacancies at the
military academy which members of the
present congress are entitled- to fill.
Among these are the second, third,
tenth, eleventh and twenty-five districts
of Illinois ; the tenth Iowa, the eleventh
Mississippi, the first Oregon. These
vacancies belong to the class which will
' enter the academy next June, and if
they are not filled during the present
session, of congress, they will revert to
members whose terms of office' begin on
March 4th, next.
Without changing the law there will
t be no further vacancies at West Point
nntil June, 1900, wnen upon that grad
uation of what ts now the second class,
there will be fifty-eight places to be
The present class, on account of the
nrgent need for its men in service at the
present time will be graduated Febru
ary 15th. The regulation examination
of all candidates to fill the vacancies
would ordinarily occurbefore boards of
army officers at the principal military
posts throughout the country March 1st,
but this year the exigencies of the serv
ice preclude the appointment of such
boards on account of the practical aban
donment of poBts due to the dispatch of
regiments to the Weet Indies and ' the
Philippines, has caused the war depart
ment to order all the accredited candi
dates to report at West Point for exami
nation early in June.
Although two vacancies will occur
among the cadets-at-large at West Point
next year, it will be impossible for Pres
ident McKinley to consider any applica
tion for -them, as he has already made
promises for every appointment that he

will be entitled to throughout the re
mainder of hia term as president. He
has adhered rigidly to . the precedent
followed almost invariably by bis prede
cessors of restricting his appointments at
both academies to the sons of army offi
cers, and even with these restrictions he
has not had available one-tenth of the
appointments needed to gratify the con
spicuously deserving cases among sol
diers' sons who, under the law, have no
preferential treatment, if they wish to
follow the profession in which their
fathers won distinction.
Gale at Astoria:
Astoeia, Jan. 15. For the past 48
hours there has been a southeast gale
blowing, that has made the mouth of the
riyer impossible to attempt, except to
the steamer Columbia, that arrived in
this morning at low tide. The Colum
bia and the State are so in the habit of
coming in by the submarine way that
little attention is paid to their troubles.
The barometer this morning shows little
signs of better weather tomorrow. All
the vessels in the harbor rode ont the
gale last night without accident, and
this evening, whilo it is still equally,
the force of the storm has passed by.
The 5 o'clock report from Fort Can by
was that the wind was blowing there 24
miles from the southwest,, and that there
was nothing in sight. This report in
dicates clearing weather, and the three
vessels that ere known to be outside will
be surely joined by a few more in the
next 24 hours.
Bow to Prevent Pneumonia.
You are perhaps aware that pneu
monia always results from a cold or from
an attack of La Grippe. During the
epidemic of La Grippe a . few years ago
when so many cases resulted in pneu
monia, it was observed that the attack
web 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.

Brigadier-General Jose Miguel Gomez,
Who Is Just Returning to Cuba
From Washington, Taking the Good
News to the Cubans.
. New Yore, Jan. 16. According to
General Jose Gomez, a -member of the
Cuban commission in Washington, the
Cuban army is sure to receive the three
years' pay to which it is entitled, $40,
000,000 being advanced by the United
States, with the custom houses of 'Cuba
as security for Us payment.
Gen. Gomez, who has jaet arrived in
the city from Washington, Is grateful
for the way the commission has been
received. The negotiations, it is expect
ed, will be completed by the end of the
month, when the commission will re
turn to Cuba. Gen, Gomez said last
"Oar hopes have all been realized. At
first, however, things looked very dark
for us. Poor Gen. Garcia was the most
pessimistic member of the commission.
"The other commissioners protested
because of the small amount. Then
came the general's death, and for the
time being negotiations were suspended.
At oar next meeting it was agreed that
an official list of the men in the Caban
army would be required before any
agreement could be reached. Accord
ingly, I left for Cuba, whence I returned
on January 5 with the required docu
"There are 47,000 men to be paid In
the Cuban army. The amount we have
requested is $40,000,000,; to be turned
over to us either in one or three pay
ment. ' We (will give as security the
custom bouses in Cuba. ' Should the
government not care to lend us that sum
we are willing to take one-third of it,
and later pay the men the rest.
"As affairs now stand, however, I
think we will receive the amount in
three payments. " This however is not
decided yet. The late Mr. Dingley was
in favor of giving ns the amount in one
Speaking of the present condition of
affairs in Havana, General Gomez said
it was bad.'
"There appears to be much disagree
ment among the American soldiers," be
continued, "and no one seems to know
what his power is. Some one gives an
order, and the next man countermands
it. As a result the government of Ha
vana is not as smooth as it might be.
"General Brooke, however, is well
liked, and the Cubans are more than
willing to help him. General Ludlow's
orders preventing the Cubans from tak
ing any part in the 'evacuation parade,'
caused a great deal of ill-feeling. ' This
is now done away with, and there need
be no fear of a clash between the Cabana
and the Americans. ' .
"The American soldiers are a fine set
of men, and do not give any trouble.
We are done with war, and want peace,
but nevertheless we would never tolerate
the condition of affairs which is reported
to exist in Porto Rico."
IT ALL BACK
Withdraws the Objectionable Portion
From His Statemert
Washington. Jan. 16. Commissary-
General Egan today sent to the war in
vestigating commission a revised state
ment in place of that originally made
in response to Miles' charges.
The revised , statement is about
35 per cent shorter than that
which was ordered withdrawn because
of its violent and abusive character.
The commiBBion went into secret session
to read the document and decide
whether in its present form it has been
expurgated sufficiently to permit it to
be made a part of the commission
Accompanying Eagan's revised state
ment was a letter from the commissary
general in which he disclaimed any in
tention in his former testimony of dis
respect to the commission. The writer
in excuse tor his vituperative , language
states that he has been placed before
the whole country as a man who fed the
army op poisoned meat. He says it is
but natural that when proper oppor
tunity was given him to meet and re
fute the charges he should characterize
them in harsh language and in tetms
that are deemed improper, no matter
what the provocation. He concludes:
"I therefore withdraw the language
and matter so objectionable, and re
submit to you my sworn statement, with
abiding faith that your commission hav
ing all the facts before it will decide the
points at iseue justly." -.'
The commission, ' after a brief secret
session, decided for the present to make
public only Eagan's letter and not the
statement accompanying it.
