publicly here, but it is quite certain that
Austria-Hungary , and Italy will. decline

sionthat anything will come cf the

NewYork.March j 12. Accompanying
the report 01 Brigadier-General Davis,
governor-general of Puerto Rico, in
regard to the situation in the island, is
a report nrade by Captain II. S. Bish
op, of the Fifth cavalry, s stationed at
Manatee, in which he makes a strong
apnea! for food.
Captain Bishop states that the press
ure for relief supplies is greater today
than it was before the hurricane. The
sugar industry will give employment to
only a few, leaving the balance of the
poor class without any occupation or
means of support. In some sections
they are beginning to raise sweet pota
toes, but in the center, of the island, or
the coffee district, there i- nothing fof
fhepoor to eat. Bananas and plan
tain will not be ready for from two to
four 4 months. If the rations are not
continued. Captain, Bishop states, there
is almost certain to be an outbreak of
lawlessness and an increase of illness
and the death rate. .? He says he had
hoped to reduce the! rations, but reports
from all sections of'the district indicate
increased destitution. ;
-General Davis states that such of the
coffee-planters as could have cleared
up the rubbish and weeds in their fields,
having no money to pay their hands,
have laid them off. ; Workmen and
their families, lacking money to live,
are drifting into the towns, demanding
food. General Davis asks for a second
shipment oi 500 tons of rice. Codfish
and bacon, in usual proportions, to fol
low the 500 tons to go on March 16th.

The situation in Frankfort tonight

came evident that neither side had any
intention of initiating hostilities. Nev
ertheless great uneasiness still exists,
especially among the republicans. Gov

MORK ARRESTS FEARED.
Frankfort, Ky.. Marck" 12. The be
lief, among republicans, that attempts
will be made to arrest republican legis
lators in connection-with the assassina
tion of Goebel, has resulted in several
members leaving town. The demo
cratic officials refuse either to confirm
or deny the accusation, and the reports
that such warrants have been issued,
althought it is admitted more arrests
will take place within a few day.
It is asserted that Taylor is being
urged to move the executive offices to
London, where he will be safe from
possible arrest, but that so far he has
refused to entertain the idea. Both
houses of the legislature met in the
state house this morning. In anticipa
tion of a possible attempt by the state
troops to prevent the meeting, quite a
ctcwd gathered around the state house
square, at the hour of the meeting, but
members of the legislature were allow
ed to meet without molestation. The

LOST AT TILLAMOOK.
A Scliooner Wrecked" on the Shore of
Astoria, March 12. News has reached
this;city from Tillamook ot the loss of
the schooner Lala and Mattie. which
has been wrecked at the cnouth of Till
amook Bay. Just how the schooner
came to go ashore is not stated' in the
meager dispatches thus far received, but
it is presumed that, while atteiiting
to cross out .of the harbor, she was set
in shore by the current and ran onto
the spit. - '.
The steamer Harrison was at Tillamook
at the time, and Captain Dodge passed
a line to the schooner as she was being
driven toward the spit. The weather
was very severe at the time, and the
line parted, so that TT was impossible
for the steamer torender further assist
ance. : ' . . '-.
The Lila and -Mattie was 6f 106.58
tons gross register, and was built at
Albion River. Cat-., in 188S.' She is
owned in San Francisco and had been
engaged "for some lime in carrying
lumber between the Bay-city and Till

total loss, as very heavy weather has
prevailed since she was driven ashore.

CONFLICT OF OPINION AMONG
! THE SENATORS.
Foraker Threatens to Introduce n Bill
Giving 'Puerto Rico a Terri-.
WASHINGTON, March 12. The
senate chamber and the adjoining
room,s today wcrjr the scene of conflicts
of opinion which found, no place in the
congressional record. The basis of
disagreement was Senator Fraker's bill
providing a form of government for
Puerto .Rico, and only the republican
senators participated in it. The con
troversy grew out of the efforts to have,
the .bill amended. There are some"
senators who hold that Puerto Rico.
f should be left in the hands of the war
department. Senator Forakt-r; as chair?
man of the Puerto Rkan committee,
met a proposition cf inactivity with the
declaration that, if it was persisted in,
he; would not only drop the bill before
the senatej entirely, but would ; intro
duce as a substitute fOri it a measure
providing for the organization of. the
islam! as a territory,' giving it all the
officers and all the privileges and im
munities of such territories as Okla-
homa. New Mexico and Arizona, mak
ing Puerto Ricansfull-lledged citizens
of the United States; and establishing
a complete free trade between them
and the United ' States proper. Fear
was feU by the advocate of the tariff
that uch an amendment could be pass
ed with the assistance of the democratic
free traders. Senator Foraker himself
is wedded to the bill under considera
tion, and on account of this prcdilec
tioiv he , decided, after conferring with
almost every one of the, republicans, to
allowl matters to drift for a ft w days. .

telephone message called Policeman
Skipton to the Haas residence, but a
through " investigation of the premises
failed to disclose the whereabouts of
the ; designing burglar nor reveal the
identity of that individual. This is the
third appearance of a would-!e-burg!ar
to enter residences w that immediate
locality during the past week, but none
of his visits have proven successful
thus far. He will probably continue
nuking these nocturnal visitations until
the reception of a contribution of cold
