CUBANS WELCOME ,
Visit of American Trooss to Guines a
Insurgert Troops Turned Out to Wel
come the Americans,- and a Re
ception Was Given in Honor of
Njsw York, Jan. 26. A dispatch to
the Tribune from Havana says : Gen
eral Lee leturned to camp to night from
a trip to the southeastern part of the
province, ending at Guines, which is the
next largest town after Havana. The
journey to Guinea was made with a team
of mules along the highway and the re
turn by rail. A battalion of the Fourth
Illinois preceded General Lee, and was
encamped there upon bis arrival. A
battalion of the Second Louisiana reach
ed Guines before his departure.
The American troops were welcomed
everywhere, and their presence was
made the occasion of demonstrations.
General Lee received an enthusiastic
welcome at Guines. Insurgent troops
escorted him, and the town was decor
ated with American and Cuban flags.
A public reception was given in the
council chamber, of which General Lee
took advantage to explain his functions,
which he was delighted with as military
governor of the province. He said he
was exercising functions which per
tained to a temporary militarv occu
pancy ; that the American soldiers came
as friends; that there was no disposition
on the part of the United States govern
ment to interfere with the Cubans in
the management of the affairs of the
island; that its only purpose was to as
eist in the administration until time
when the people were ready to declare
for themselves what their wishes were.
He counseled toleration of all classes
toward one another, and complimented
the community on-the good order which
had been preserved. General Lee also
explained bow rations were being dis
tributed by direction of the president.
He said their distress was fully under
stood, and the American authorities
hoped to adopt measures of permanent
Probabilities Point to the Unlucky Ves
sel Being the British Bark Gun
ford Crew Quitting the Vessel.
Astoria, Or., Jan. 26. A special mes
senger arriving at Seaside from Cannon
beach this morning reports that a four
masted vessel was drifting ashore at Sil
ver cliff daring the night. The vessel's
name was not learned. She had both
anchors out, but they -were dragging.
The ship's boats had been' lowered, and
the crew was ready to abandon her.
Two tugs left here at once to render any
assistance possible, and the cutter Perry
has received orders to go and take the
Point Adams life-saving crew.
It is believed here that the vessel
above mentioned is the British bark
Gunford, Captain MacPherson, bound
from San Diego to Portland. This theory
is based upon, the circumstances that the
Gunford was sighted off the bar three
days ago, attempting to make the en
trance. She again stood out to sea, and
it is probable that in trying to make the
Columbia again the ship drifted out of
her course and was carried on the beach.
The fact of the Gunford being the only
four-masted vessel due to arrive here at
this time adds considerable color to the
belief that she is the ill-fated vessel.
The Gunford left San Diego for Port
land, January 4, with a half cargo of
cement, consigned to Meyer, Wilson &
Co., of this city, and who are also agents
for the vessel. The cargo comes from
Hamburg, half of it having been dis
charged at San Diego.
The Gunford is of 2108 tons net regis
tered tonnage, was built in Greenwich in
1892, and is owned bv the Gunford Ship
Company, Ld. Her dimensions are, 281
feet length, 42 feet beam, and 24 feet
depth of hold. : -

To Gain Flesh, to Sleep Well, to Know

MAKF A TEST OF STUART'S DYS
No trouble is more common or more
misunderstood than nervous dyspepsia .
People having it think their nerves are
to blame and are surprised that they
are not cured by nerve medicines. The
real seat of the mischief is lost sight of.
The stomach is the organ' to be looked
Nervous dyspeptics often do not have
any pain whatever in the stomach, nor
perhaps any of the symptoms of stom
ach weakness. Nervous dyspepsia shows
itself not in the stomach so much as in
nearly every organ. In some cases the
heart palpitates and is Irregjlar; in oth
ers the kidneys are effected ; in others
the bowels are constipated, with head-

of .gas, sour risings and heartburn. '
It is safe to say that Stuart's Dyspep

ness or . disease except cancer of the
stomach. They cure sour stomach, gas,

Political Touts at Olympia.
Oltmpia, Wash., Jan. 25. The Wash
ington politician, big' and little,' is in
evidence at Olympia. It is a small man
indeed, who does not impress himself
upon one or the other of the aspiring
senatorial candidates and endeavor to
demonstrate his peculiar fitness as a
"Moses" to lead the great men oat of
the wilderness. In fact you will find
men here to whom, at their homes, you
would hardly give a passing thought.
Not that they are of any considerate con
sequence in this mix-up, but the general
bustle they assume and the mysterious
manner they surround themselves with
has its impressive effect. Besides that
tbeyaid in putting a few dollars into
circulation no - matter where they get
it and that is not an unmixed evil.
Bat so long as aspiring candidates for
positions like the United States senate
will persist in surrounding themselves
with every small-fry politician, whose
influence is the merest pretense, so locg
will these touts be in evidence. Olym
pia is full of them.' Each of the several
headquarters are surrounded. If one
takes occasion to speak to Tom Home,
Wilson, knows about it through bis
toots in five minutes afterward. And
so it goes.
From present indications Ankeny or
Wilson will be the next senator.

to Set Them Free.
New York, Jan.1 26. A dispatch to
the Herald, from . Washington says:
Through the French embassy here Spain
has again urged the United States to
procure the release of Spanish prisoners
held by the Philippine insurgents. In
formation officially received by the
Madrid government from the Philippine
shows that the lives of Spanish women
and children, as well as men, are in
danger and that the prisoners are not
receiving proper treatment. The Span
ish government called attention to that
provision of the treaty requiring this
government to use its good offices to pro
cure the release of the prisoners and
urged the United States to do every
Secretary Hay replied that General
Otis had been instructed to give im
mediate attention to the matter, bat
this government has made no promises
to obtain the release of the prisoners. It
is the growing belief that they will be
able to obtain the release of the prison
ers only by force.
. Information has also been received
here showing that 500 friars, held as
prisoners, are compelled by the Filipinos
to undergo all sorts of menial labors,
such as tending to the horses of Filipino
officers, paving the streets of the town,
and so forth.
