meeting, Cannon introduced the na

appropriations committee will meet to

A Complete Backdown on the Part Of
Madrid Officials.
Washington. D. C. March 9. Spain
has wtihdrawn her request for recall of
Consul-General Lee, and It is believed
the inoident is practically closed. The
withdrawal came today in the shape of
an official communication from Minis
ter Woodford. It is stated that the re
quest was never put in the shape of a
demand, but was merely a suggestion
on the part of Spain, and when she
found it would not be pleasantly re
ceived bv this country she promptly re
called it. '
Washington, March 9. It is learned
that the Spanish objection to Consul
General Lee is based largely - upon his
sympathy for the Cubans and some of
his utterances which have found their
way into print. It is understood the
Spaniards bIbo take exceptions to the
friendly relations and companionship
existing hetween Lee and the corre
spondents of papers which .have been
decidedly unfriendly to Spain.
It is believed . De Lome carried in
formation calculated to make the Span
ish government request the recall oi
But Divers Are Still In Doubt as to th
'( Means Used, v
New York, March 9. A dispatch to
the Tribune from Havana says: Not
manv days will be needed, for Captain
Sampson and his associates to conclude
the investigation. The wrecking com
ranies are making progress in clearing
a way through superstructure." During
the absence of the board, the naval de
partment divers . have been ablo to ex
tend their examination of the plates of
the hull. They found these plates
twisted as if from an outside explosion.
Everything previously learned re
garding the forward magazine being
intact and the existenoe of large quan
tities of unexploded ammunition has
been confirmed and strengthened.
.Without going into minutes, it may
be said that the navy department
divers have secured much teohnical
evidence from the condition of the hull
and keel and the interior indicating
that the Maine explosion was due to
foul play. Whether by a torpedo or a
submarine mine, doubts may be felt.
Not much proof can be gathered by the
naval board concerning the persons
who were in , the conspiracy. The
Spanish authorities are in the best po
sition to determine the matter.
The Spanish divers have been work
ing slowly. They have been: giving
more attention to the coal bunkers, ap
parently, than to any other portions of
the wreck. They have made-nothing
more than a superficial examination of
the hull. .,-.' ';
It seems t6 be understood ' that the
Spanish board in its investigation is
finding little evidence to give plausible
support to the theory of apoident. This
distinction from positive.- proor , or, an
external explosion it may be able to lg.
nore. There is clearly less confidence
in official circles than during the per
iod when the -declarations -of accident
were made by General Blanco The
Spanish inquiry proceeds in leisurely
fashion. It may be a long time before
a conclusion is reached. Ihis will be
no reason for a long delay by the naval
board. .
Consul at Sagua la Grande Resigns
New York. March 9. The World's
Havana correspondent sends word that
Walt at B. Barker, consul at Saeua la
Grande for the United States, has re
signed. It is alleged in Spanish circles
that Consul Barker's resignation is on
account of friction with Consul-General
Lee over the improper distribution of
American charity, but the World's cor
respondent declares that Mr. Barker
feels that the American government,
in its activity regarding Cuban affairs,
has ignored all the consular reports,
and the consuls to all intents and pur
poses are useless as channels of informa
tion. - -
President Lost No Time
Answering Spain.
And Naval Vessels Will Carry the Sup-
plies to Cuba as Was First Planned
Spain Backs Down.
Washington, March 8. The Spanish
situation developed two new phases to
day, when it became known that the
Spanish government had Iorinauy re
quested the recall of Consul-General
Lee at Havana, with which request the
United States had courteously but firm
ly refused' to, comply; also that the
Spanish government had suggested the
impropriety of sending relief supplies
to the Cuban reuonoentrados on the
cruiser Montgomery and gunboat Nash
ville, to which suggestion the United
States had given a like answer In the
negative. - ' .
The first intimation or these steps
came in a brief and explicit telegram
from Madrid. Prior to its receipt,
however, the authorities here had
been fully conversant with the facts,
although no intimation had been al
lowed to get to the publio on either
' The disclosures from Madrid left no
further ground for reticence in Wash
ington, and after a conference at the
White House between the president,
Assistant Secretary Day, of the state
department, and Secretary Long, of the
navy department, the following author
ized statement was handed to the press
by Judge Day, comprising everything
that was to be said by the administra
tion on the subject:
"The president will not consider the
reoall of General Lee. He has borne
himself throughout this crisis with
judgment, fidelity and courage, to the
president's entire satisfaction.
"As to the supplies for the relief of
the Cuban people all arrangements
have been made to carry a consignment
from Key West by one of the naval
vessels, whichever may be best adapted
for the1 purpose, to Matanzas and
Sagua." -
Beyond the foregoing there was no
particular ohange in the conference at
the White House. It did not discuss
other subjects, and it was stated posi
tively that the authorized statement
comprised everything that would be
given to any one.
The ground on which General Lee's
recall was asked was not ofHoially dis
closed. It is known, however, that the
Spanish government has . chafed for
some time over General Lee's presence
in . Havana, although this has never
taken the form of a definite protest
prior to the present time. ' It began to
assume a more serious aspect shortly
after the arrival of the Maine at Ha
vana. At that time General Lee es
corted Captain Sigsbee on his round of
offloial calls. These were made with
due formality, but the Spanish officials
took offense when the calls were re
stricted to General Blanco, Admiral
Manterola, and the representatives of
the military arm of Spain's service, and
did not include Premier Galvez and
bis associates of the autonomist cabinet,
who represented the new civil regime
whioh Spain is seeking to enforce.
The matter came to the attention of
Senor de Lome, the Spanish minister
at Washington, and, although there
was no protest, the situation, doubt
less, reached the state department, as
suitable amends were made by Captain
Sigsbee calling on Dr. Congosto, the
civil secretary-general of Cuba, Pre
mier Galvez and his associates.
There was like irritation a din
ner by Consul-General Lee to the offi
cers of the Maine. The list of guests
on that occasion is said to have omitted
some of the Spanish naval offloers,v and
to have included quits conspicuously
the names of a number of Amerioan
newspaper correspondents, who were
"regarded by the Spanish officials at i&
vana as "antagonistic to them. This
was also brought to the attention of
the officials, but was not made the
basis for any action, but rather of un
official criticism of General Lee's gen
eral mode of procedure. Within re
cent days it (had been understood by
officials here that the feeling against
General Lee had been 'smoothed, and
the request of his recall, was for that
reason in the nature of a complete sur
prise. ' ,
There are no which
clearly disclose the grounds for the re
call, although it is not known that
Spain has made any exact specification
of complaint. Since the Maine dis
aster, a report has been circulated that
General Lee was of the persona' opin
ion that the explosion was due to ex
ternal causes. No official report of
this character was ever sent to Wash
ington, so far as known, but the mere
circulation of the report in Madrid, at
tributing such views to General Lee,
has been the source of much feeling in
Spanish official circles.

Bill Providing; for Two Additional Ar
tillery Regiments Passed.
Washington, March 9. Chairman
Hull, of the military committee, in the
house, moved the passage under sus
pension of the rules of the Hawley bill,
creating two additional regiments of
artillery. The debate on the artillery
bill developed nothing exciting, but
there was a great outburst of enthusi
asm when Hay (Dem. Va.),j declared
that he. stood ready to vote for the
measure, In view of the emergency
which confronted the country.
Norton of Ohio today introduced in
the house a resolution, which, was re
ferred to the committee on rules, set
ting aside Thursday and Friday for
consideration of a joint resolution to
recognize the independence, of the re
public of Cuba. . '

Washington, March 9. Today's ses
sion of the senate was devoted entirely
to consideration of the District of Col
umbia appropriation bill. At the hour
of adjournment the bill had .hot been
disposed of, and its discussion will be
continued tomorrowi '
The present monopoly in the city of
the Chesapeake & Potomac Telegraph
Company, on account of high rates', was
severely scored. Carter (Mont.) urged
that the bill go over until tomorrow, as
he desired to offer an amendment relat
ing to the gas supply of Washington. V
"A more infamous and audacious
outrage was never perpetrated on an
inoffensive public than is nightly per
petrated by the Washington Gaslight
Company," declared Carter, "and I
desire to present an amendment that
will afford the suffering people' of this
city an opportunity to foroe'the com
pany to give them what they pay for. V
The bill was laid aside, and at 4:43
the senate went into executive sessiorj,
and soon afterwards adjourned. . .
During the morning hour Allen
(Neb.) presented the petition of 18,000
railway men of Pennsylvania in favor

The Nebraska State Lav Is Declared
Invalid. . .
Washington, March 9.-Justice Har
lan today delivered an opinion in the
Nebraska maximum freight rate case.
He held the Nebraska law to be con
trary to the 14th amendment, in that it
authorized the taking of property with
out the proccess of law and was there
fore invalid. Hence the railroad won.
Justice Harlan's opinion affirmed the
opinion of the circuit court, of appeals
of the eighth circuit, which was
the maximum freight rates law favora
ble to the railroads.
This case was instituted to test the
validity of the law passed by the Ne
braska legislature in 1893, prescribing
the maximum rates for transportation
of freights by railroads within the
state. The decision sustains the con
tention of the railroad companies and
holds against the validity of the law.
The opinion was based largely, upon
the oharge of unreasonableness. Jus
tice Brewer made a computation show
ing that the reduction effected in the
freight rates amounted on an average
to 29 per cent, which' be held was
too great a change.
The case has been twice argued ir
the supreme court, Hon. W. J. Bryan
appearing as one of the counsel for the
itate at the last hearing. . V
Cramps Reported to Be Figuring With
a Foreign Naval Power.
. Philadelphia, Maroh 9. The North
American Review prints the following:
While the attention of the public dur
ing the recent war scare has been for a
time diverted from the Cramp shipyard
to League island, yet it is safe to assert
that the Kensington, firm of shipbuild
ers is at this moment on the eve of se
curing a foreign contract of sensational
proportions. Although the members. of
the firm maintain the utmost secrecy
on the subject, it is a fact that during
the week Just passed a force of draughts
men has been working on plans and es
timates almost continuously. . ;'.
These plans and estimates, it is said,
are being drawn up for the considera
tion of a foreign power, and include a
first-olass shipyard, such as is operated
by the Cramps, besides several battle
ships and cruisers. Although the name
of the foreign power is being Kept a
secret, it is generally understood by
those in a position to know that the
plans and estimates will eventually
find their way to Russia. .. ,

Rush From Dyea and Skagway-
Seattle, Maroh 7. Five ' steamers
arrived from Alaska today the Uto
pia,' Hueneme, Del Norte, Protection
and Queen. The Queen left Skagway
last Sunday. , E. E. Knapp, of Boston,
who came down on the Queen, author
izes the statement that the Canadian
authorities raised the British flag on
the summit of White pass on Saturday,
February 26. ' This has heretofore been
considered American territory.. Mr.
Enapp's authority' for the statement is
the foreman of the Humbert Trans
portation Company's pack train.. He
reported the affair to Mr. Knapp, who
is connected with the company, just
before the latter left Skagway.
In referenoe to the report that mar
tial law had been, proclaimed at Skag
way, Mr.. Knapp said that when he left
last Sunday no such action had been
taken; neither was it anticipated. Mr.
Knapp also said that the reports of
deaths' at Dyea, Skagway and on the
trails had been very much exaggerated.
He had made a personal examination,
and ascertained that since November
1 there had been 19 deaths at Skagway,
and 18 at Dyea. This is not at all
large, considering the population of the
two places.
The report that two men from Daw
son had perished on Whtie pass, with a
large amount of gold dust on them, is
said by Mr. Knapp to have no founda
tion.- ..!'...".''.'.;
The rivalry between the towns of
Skagway and Dyea is characterized by
Mr. Knapp as being "at white heat,"
and is the reason, he thinks, that so
many exaggerated stories of death and
hardship are sent out. Eaoh town is
doing all it can to throw discredit on
the other. ,- . '
It is feared that serious trouble will
grow out of the Canadians' attempt to
collect duty on the summit oi White
and Chilkoot passes, and the Amerioans
will, resist the payment of duties on
what they consider American ground.
Another complication will result from
the various tramways which are being
constructed to carry freight over the
passes. The officials of these tram
ways are reported to have declared that
any interruption with their construc
tion work or ajy attempt to exercise
any right of ownership will be resisted.
It is thought at Dyea and Skagway
that' the next movement on the part of
the, Canadian authorities will be to
claim sovereignty over those two places.
Last Sunday the boundary line was at
Lake Bennett, then at Lindemann, and
now is at the summit of the mountains,
which is only about 20 miles from salt
water. '
Two days before the Queen left Skag
way, the wind, which had blown from
the north continuously for seven weeks,
shifted and began to blow from the
southwest, causing a general thaw to
set in. The changed weather caused
hundreds of people who had been de
tained by the severe cold to start over
the trails from ' .both Skagway and
Dyea, and when the steamer left, a gen
eral exodus from both towns was taking
place. Both trails are reported in ex
cellent condition. . -
A Portland Man's Opinion.
Portland, Or., March 7. Northwest
territory officials have taken the initi
ative in the contest for possession of
Summit lake, by raising the Canadian
flag on its shores. This lake, according
to Dr. Horace R. Littlefleld, one of
the best-posted men regarding Alaskan
affairs on the coast, is situated, as its
name implies, at the summit of White
pass, about 16 miles from Skagway,
Both the United, States and Canada
claim it, and the dispute regarding it
has engendered bitter feelings between
Americans , and Canadians in Alaska,
whioh have rapidly increased in inten
sity of late. The American claim to
the lake is generally considered to be
quite as well founded asMhat of Can
ada, and the action of the Dominion
officials is premature, if not wholly un
justified. ,''.";,

man, Killed.
Rome, March 8. Signor Felice
Carlo Cavalottl, the poet, dramatist, .
publicist and well-known radical mem
ber of the chamber of deputies for Cor
telona, was killed here this afternoon
in a duel with swords with Signor Ma
cola, member of deputies and editor of
the Gazzetta di Venezia. The encoun
ter ,was the outcome of a press polem
ics in the oolumns of the Milan Seoolo
at an unfrequented spot , outside the
Porta Magore. Signor Maoola's ' sec
onds were Deputies Signor Guido Fu
ginato, a professor at the university of
Turin and member of Foltre, and
Signor Bizzoni, the publicist, . and
Signor Tassi, member of the chamber
of deputies.' -
Shortly before the meeting, bignor
Cavalottl seemed in excellent spirits,
and even joked with his seconds.
When the word was given, he attacked
his opponent vigorously. The first
two engagements were without result,
but in the third, Signor Cavalotti re
ceived a thruBt in . the throat that
severed his iugular vein
At first, it was thought he was only
slightly injured, but the gravity of the
wound was soon perceived on his put
ting his hand to his mouth. He with
drew it covered with blood and could
not utter a word. The doctors and his
seconds carried him to Zellino, and
laid him in a bed in the residence of
the Countess Celiro. There, tracheot
omy was ' performed, and artificial
breathing attempted, but all efforts
were useless. Signor Uavalotti expired
in 10 minutes, without speaking again.
Signor Macola did not reoeive a scratch.
The news, on reaching the city,
caused a great sonsation. iMumerous
deputies and friends hurried to the
scene, and there is universal regret over
the death of Cavalottl.
