HAZER WAS CAUGHT.

emy Convicted by Court Martial
Washington, Juno 7. Following
tho examplo set at West Point, ttio
superintendent of tho naval academy
has caused a cadet to bo dismissed
for hazing. In this case, however,
the accused was tried by court mar
tial and regularly convicted. Tho
statement in the cao made public
at the navy department is as follows:
"Tho court martial before which
Naval Cadet Calvin Joy Crcasscy,
fourth class, was tried Juno 3, con-
ened by the superintendent of tho
naval academy, pursuant to tho
authority vested in him by the act
of congress, approved Jiino ioiu,
having found tho specification of
the charge preferred against him
proved, and that he was guilty ol
the charce. 'violation of the act ol
congress, approved on tho 23rd day
of June, 1875, to prevent hazing at
tho naval academy,' which recom
mendation was approved by the super
intendent, ho was dismissed from the
academy accordingly."
The details of the court martial are
not mndo public, but it is understood
that the dismissed cadet was discov
ered in tho act of hazing another
cadet in his room by compelling him
to stand on his head. It was sus
pected that the practico might spread
rapidly, so drastic and speedy action
was had as a deterrent.

CLEAN-UP IN FULL SWING.
Klondike Oold Pouring Into Dawson at the
Rale of $40,000 Per Day.
Dawson, .May 21, via Seattle, Juno
8. I ho spring cleanup Is in full
swing in all parts of tho Klondiko
camp. Millions of dollars' worth of
tho precious dust hits been washed
from the mountain-like dumps of pay
dirt that were taken out by tho army
ol toning miners through Uio long,
weary winter mounts, witiitn a
mouth $3,000,000 or $1,000,000 moro
will Havo been taken out and tho
washing of tho winter dumps will bo
miiNitcd. 'l no spring olean-up of tho
camp Is estimated at $15,000,000,
and thosuniineroutputat $10,000,000.
Tho dust is coming into Dawson at
tho rate of $30,000 to $10,000 u day.
After two or three weeks tho roads
will bo drier and it will How In at a
heavier rate. Tho two banks at Daw
son aro busier than they havo been
for months buying or receiving tho
dust for storago. Tho big trading
companies aro receiving a great deal
of dust In payment for goods advanced
to miners during tho winter. The
camp is in a nourishing condition,
and everywhere good feeling prevails.
Tho first shipments of dust of any
consequence to the outside will per
haps not start for iv week or two, or
until tho river is at a moro steady
stage and tho lxmts run moro regu
larly. However, there will bo it rush
of people out by tho first boats, and
all will carry moro or less of the
precious product.
Tho work of washing up is in pro
gress on all tho creeks, mid all aro
sending in dust. Soino of tho moro
remote creeks aro not sending much
yet, because of tho muddy condition
of tho roads or trails. Some of tho
trails aro almost impassable for oven

CUBANS MAY REPENT,
Administration Hopeful That It Will Accept
Ammendmcnt.
Washington, Juno 10. Tho cabi
net was in session over two hours
today discussing tho Cuban and
Philippine situations A communi
cation has lcen received from Gover
nor General Wood in regard to the
prospect for tho unconditional accept
ance of the Piatt amendment, but its
contents are not made public. It can
bo stated, huwcvur, that thcro is a
hopeful feeling in administrative
circles that after tho first soreness
wears off tho convention will sec tho
wisdom of accepting tho terms of
tho amendment. Tho answer to Gen
eral Wood to le scut and the language.
of tho communication was under
consideration today. Meanwhile tho
status in Cuba is to bo maintained.
No action looking to the calling of
another convention is contemplated
if the present convention should de
cline to accede to our terms.
Tho program looking to tho estab
lishment of civil government in tho
Philippines is being formulated in
tho shape of an order which is to be
promulgated shortly, It is said that
thcro is no definite conclusion as to
whether the powers of tho civil ad
ministration will bo exercised under
tho general war powers of tho presi
dent or tho power vested in him by
tho Spooncr amendment. That, how
ever, is considered a matter of detail.
Tho main point is that tho civil ad
mnistration, which will bo confined
largely to tho municipalities, will bo
vested in tho head of tho Taft com
mission and such other officials as
may be designated, and that they
will exercise their functions subject
to tho direct authority of tho secre
tary of war, to whom all reports will
lo made. Civil administration un
der military supervision, such as is
contemplated, is said not to bo anom
alous, and tho civil government in
New Mexico and tho Southern states
during tho early stages of tho recon
struction period aro pointed to as be
ing substantially analogus to what is
proposed in tho Philippines,

Pittsburg, Juno 8. A great 30
inch mirror belonging to a Newtonian
reflecting tolcscopo at Lick observa
tory was, shattered into many frag
ments wtiilo it was being drilled to
convert it into a casscgrain glass.
As a result it is probaulo that tho
long projected exposition of tho Lick
observatory into tho southern hemi
sphere will havo to bo postponed.
l'rofessor Jirashcar will mako a now
glass for tho Lick scientists, but tho
glass cannot bo obtained in less than
six months. It was valued at $3,000.
Big Fire at Lexington.
Lexington, Ky., Juno 10. Tho

ADVEK8K DECISION

INGTON CANAL.
Ma'orlty Does Not favor the Proposition, as
They Believe that Cither It or the Puget
Sound Naval Station Would Have to be
Abandoned In the Cnd-Mlnorlty Made
a favorable Report.
iiMiington, Juno 10. Tho naval
board appointed under tho tonus of
an net of congrins, to examine Into
the adavntagoH of Lakes Union and
Washington, In tho stato of Wash
ington, near Seattle, as froth witter
basins for laying up naval vessels,
has mndo an adverse re-tort upon tho
proposition. The majority find in
sulwtaneo. after careful examinations,
that, having in view tho Inwt interest
and welfare of tho navy, u fresh water
basin in this location separated by
some distance from tho naval station
on Puget sound, would bo oxKMislvo
to maintain, and in the end, one or
tho other would huvo to bo abandoned.
Tho minority of tho board mado a
Btrong plea in favor of tho proKsed
naval basin, and dinouss at sumo
length the engineering work which
Would be required to carry out tho
project.
RELATIONS ARE DISTURBED.
High Explosives Canse Trouble Between the
Army Ilurcas.
Now York. Juno 10. A special
from Wa.tihiigtou says:
High oxplosives havo disturbed re
lations betwien tho bureau of ord
nance and loard of ordnance and
fortifications. A bitter controversy
has been raging lictween those two
hranclics of the army lor moro than
a year and has been brought to tho
attention of Secretary Root Tor linal
action.
Tho fortifications law authorizes
tho secretary in his discretion to
purclutso for $100,000 tho right to
manufacture thorite, an explosive for
filling shells, and tho Ishaiu shell,
a projectile in which tho explosive
gohitiuo can lx fired. Tho board ol
ordnance and fortifications, has re
commended that tho secretary of war
acquire tho patents upon the explos
ive shells named.
Tho luiard of whioh Major Rogers
Ilirnoys is president, has leon con
ducting tests at Sandy Hook. Tlioso
explosives included thorite, maxim
ite, rendrock and others. Its rejiort
has just Ik'CU received but General
llullliugton decline to make it pub
lic. It is known, however that the
Ixmrd reports that "after exhaustive
trials of thorite ns a shell filler, In
cluding field, siege and seacoast shell,
it is found that a reasonable degree
of efficiency cannot Ihj obtained, and
the lioard therefore recommends that
the tests Ihj discontinued."
Maximito seems to have pleased tho
board moro than thorite. Tho board
of ordnance mid forticliutions thinks
animus influenced tho ordnuueo
board in its decision.
UNDER ARMY POWER.
Secretary Root the Real Head of Philippine
Government.
Washington, Juno 8. Tho now
civil government to bo established
in tlio Philippines is receiving tho
considcratou of tho president and tho
secretary of war. It will differ hut
little from what was first outlined,
as thoro will bo a governor for tho
archipelago and legislative council
and other officers. This government
will have control of all civil affairs,
but it will bo under tho war power
to tho extent of being directed by tho
secretary of war. Thero will bo a
nico distinction as lo tho iiuthortiy of
tho general commanding tho troops
in tho Philippines and tho governor
to bo appointed under the civil gov
ernment. No official declaration lias
been mado as to which will be the
supremo authority, but it Is known
that tho secretary of war will bo su
premo. Wliilo it is not tho Intention
to conduct tho government of tho
Philippines under tho I-orakcr law,
that law will bo taken as sanctioning
what is to bo dono. Tho new govorn
ment will bo similar to that which
existed for a short timo in tho early
days of Now Mexico. Thcro was a
civil L'ovcrnor. appointed by tho pros
ident, and a commanding general of
tho army. Both had their functions
in preserving tho peace and control
ling tho affairs of tho territory.
