.on Cuban Question,
Romk, March 0. Rioting, caused
by the anger of the people at the con
duct of the Abyssinian campaign, was
continued last night In nearly every
large city In Italy, although a rain
storm cleared the streets of the cap
ital. At Milan a mob marched
through the principal streets, smash
ing windows right and left, yelling
execrations on Crlspl and the minis
ters. The rioters went to the railway
station with the intention of prevent
ing the departure from Milan of the
army reserve of that city and neigh
borhood. A sharp encounter followed.
Soldiers and carablnlcrt were pelted
with stones, and bayonets and swords
were used to drive back tho crowds.
Somo soldiers and policemen wcro In
jured. Scores of rioters were slightly
wounded. The disturbances contin
ued until 2 a. in., when troops at the
point of tho bayonet, cleared the rail
road station and neighborhood. Bus
iness Is proceeding as usual and tho
only ovldcnco hero of recent disturb
ances aro strong additional guards of
soldiers about tho palaco and all pub
lic buildings. There wns serious
rioting at Parma Inst night. Munici
pal buildings were besieged by angry
mobs, windows smashed and troops
fired a volley over the heads of a most
riotous mob. Several leaders wcro ar
rested. A GARRISON SURROUNDKD.

PRESIDENT ON CUBAN QUESTION.
Washington, March 0. The presi
dent said to a representative of j tho
Associated Press today;
"I see it is assumed in certain
quarters that a deliverance published
a few days ago on the Cuban question
may be taken as defining the attitude
of the administration on tho subject.
I wish you would say.'I never sawjthe
statement nor heard of It until I read
it In the newspapers. Even then I
neglected to read all of it, supposing
it represented nothing more than
newspaper gush. I do not know how

only desire to say lli addition that I
do not know whether the publication
referred to represents the views of
the administration on Cuban ques
tion or notf, and that T never found
any dllllculty In communicating with
the people In a ma

no doubt ns to the, authenticity of a

San Francisco. March 0. Mayor
Sutro was f urlousbvuen he heard of
tlio seizure by thefpost onico author
ities of his communications to the
congressmen mid Iwjnntou at Wash
ington warning (hem of tho fclicmes
of Huntington to compass the pas
sage of tho funding bill. Ills anger
wns occasioned not so much by the
stoppngoof tho tpttcrs as from the
fact that he had Apt been notified by
the postmaster f the MsUiire. He
considered that 'lie holding of tho
letters had causei the loss or valunblo
time In the fight igaltist the funding
bill, and that he . should have been
told that tho dc artment considered
tho envelopes objectionable so that
he might havo devised other means
of placing tuemfn the hands of tho
members of congress.
Tho Inscription on the cnvclopo to
which the postnllauthoritles object Is,
In the opinion of the mayor, nothing
but nn expression of truth, and there
fore not in tho least libelous or scur
rilous. Ho bclloved the statement
that 'Huntington -would not steal a
red-hot stovoJ' with tho Inference
that ho might, be capablo of stealing
something far .more valuable and
easily handled, to bo strictly In accor
dance with vcrnclty, In the light of
past events and wonders that the
ppstoulccjlgpartraont should seize up
on such an expression to stop tho mis
sive to the men he wishes to reach.

which has turned nolghbor against

"Who Is tho better qualified to carry
out the Interests of tho district In a
business manner? MivChorrlnglon Is
wholly unfamiliar wltlr tho needs of
our schools, and was never known to
attend a school mooting slnco his
residence In this district, while on tho
other hand Dr. Byrd has been chair
man of tho board for the past yenry
and Is thoroughly familiar with all
tho details of tho management of tho
schools and tho requirements of tho
district. It Is to bo hoped our voters
will not permit such a calamity to
overtake us, as tho election of Mr.
Chcrrlngton, who represents all tho
prejudices nnd bigotry of the dark
ages, nnd nil that is vicious in our
political system. It is un-Amorlcan
to turn back tho "whcols of time" 300
years and array our people against ono
another, as they woro thon. Dr. Bynl
Is a gentleman In ovcry sonso, nnd Is
not In tho habit of telling smutty nnd
vilo stories to "split tho enrs of tho
groundlings." It Is not a matter of
Republican, Democratic or Populist
success. The tarju, gold nnd silver
standards aro not in question. It is a
contest for tho proper management of
the schools and of tho success of tho
bettor elcmont In tho community
against n secret and "dark cellar"
conspiracy, to'subvort tho lxist Inter
ests of our public schools. Mr. Chcr
rlngton represents the latter element.
Ho has been n resident of our city but
a short time, whllo Dr. Byrd was born
and raised in our midst. Thcro Is hut
one courso left for thoso who wish to
sco a proper management of our
schools, and that Is: to vote for Dr.
Byrd, who has given general satlsfac
faction to all persons who have de
sired the continuance of our excellent
schools. Taxpayers and friends of
good government, do not allow your
selves to be mislead by any false Issues.

MR.' LAWLER'S TRIP.
Bound for Ldn'don to Promote Santlam
Portland, March O.-Mr. William
11. Lawlor, managing director of the
Lawlcrgold mines, limited, exten
sively engaged In mining operations
ot Quartsvllle, Linn count', was a
guest at tho Portland, accompanied
by Mrs. Lawlcr. Mr. Lawler and his
wire left this morning' over the
Northern Pacific for Now York and
thenco go to London where he wfll re
main about six weeks on business con
nected with tho further advancement
of mining operations In tho Santlam
and adjacent countries.
Talking of tho work so far pro
gressed nt Quartzvllle, nnd the out
look,Mr. Lawlor speaks very encourag
ingly. Tho 20-statnp mill, sot up im
dor so many difficulties, owing to tho
lateness or tho season, Is crushing' 00
tons or tiro each day and meeting all
expectations. Tho clean-up, after a
run of ono week, proved entlroly satis-
ractory, and ruturo results will doubt
less prove amply sufficient to Justify
tho groat oxpenso Incurred In a prac
tical development or tho mineral
wealth or tho country.
"Quartzvllle and tho surrounding
country Is rich In mineral," said Mr.
Lawlcr, "but the character or tho ore
Is such that it should provontnny
stampede to thnt section. It Is not a
poor mnn's country, nnd tho mines
must lw operated on n largo scale In
order to ninko thorn pay. Tho ore Is
not free, nnd it will not only tnko
capital, but plenty of it, to bring
about good results."
Mr. Lawlcr has bonded a number of
properties In tho Blue river country.
Tho mines owned by the Lnno county,
Bluo river nnd Lucky Boy companies,
havo each been bonded for $15,000, the
Turner clalnrfor $0000, nnd other hi
sldo grounds nt various sums. It Is
tho Intention ot Mr. Lawler to com
monco actlvo work on thoso properties
early next Juno, and his London trip
will bo made as oxpediously as possi
ble on this account.
All mllcago fees for legislators and
county sheriffs should bo abolished
and only actual traveling expenses

Intended for any way simply a guar
