Senate Work On the Tariff.
Reorganization Plan Rejected An
Washington, April 15. The com
mittee appointed iby the Republican
caucus of the senate to arrange with
the opposition a plan for the reorgani
zation of the Renale committees de
cided to reject the proposition made
by the committee representing "the
alliance of Democrats, Populists and
Silver Republicans, and ask for
another conference with a view of
reaching a more satisfactory under
standing. The first skirmish on the tariff
question occujred in the senate. It
was followed by a vote which seryed
as a test of the strength of the var
ious elements of the senate. The vote
occured on a motion by Merrill, chair
man of the committee on finance, to
refer a resolution by Vest, one of the
Democratic leaders of that committee.
This made an issue between the two
leading elements of tho senate.
Aside from this the resolution was In
the nature of a criticism of Secretary
Gage, and declared illegal his recent
order relative to goods Imported after
April 10th when according to the re
troactive clause of the pending Ding
ley bill, the new tariff rates are to ap
ply. Merrill's motion prevailed by the
close vote of 24 to 23.
The first step toward the acceptance
of the invitation from Prance to par
ticipate in the Paris exposition, of
1000, has been taken by tho govern
ment in the following actien:
Senator Mason, of Illinois, offered
in the benate a joint resolution ac
cepting the invitation and providing
for the appointment of 'a commis
sioner general and nine scientific ex
perts. The sum of $70,000 Is appropri
ated to meet the expenses of tho ex
hibit. The salary of the commissioner-general
is fixed ati 0,000 a
year; of the assistant commissioner
general at $7,500 and of tho nine ex
perts at $1,500 a year each.
The expenses of the commissionera
and his assistants are also to be met
with thesumsset aside for their sal
aries, but a separate appropriation of
$27,000 is made to proylde for the cler
ical assistance to the experts. It Is
provided that all appointees shall be
named by the president and confirmed
by the senate.
Tho resolution provides for a com
mittee to wait upon governors of the
states to notify them of the desire of
tho government to take part in tho ex
hibition, and for them to take proper
steps for the representation of all
states and territories in tho United

Representative Rldgclcy, ofKansa,
introduced In the house yesterday a
bill "to enable unemployed to earn a
living; to utilize industry, and produce
general prosperity." His plau is
much like the one advocated by' 'Gen

An experimental tank In which
miniature warships will be tested
will soon be constructed at the Wash

first) of the kind In this country and
the largest under cover. Its dimen

docks, and will be sufficient to float
any of the smaller cruisers. On all
sides it will be covered. It will be
500 feet long, fifty feet across and
fourteen feet deep.
Running across and close to the
water will be a carriage upon which
will be attached a dynamo-meter to
register the resistance due to towing
a model through the basin. Models,
varying in length from'ten to twenty
feet,-of erery new sbip"wlll be at

Many People See the Flyer,
Multitude of Testimony Ought to Be
Cedak Rapids, April 15. There Is
the greatest excitement here over the
appearance of what was termed the
air ship, which was first seen In Kan
sas some two or three weeks ago. The
people hero have heretofore regarded
the many stories published in regard
to the mysterious object as fakes of
tho first water. But now all doubts
which have existed have been swept
away. Hundreds of people know for
a certainty that some mysterious ob
ject is sweeping through the heavens,
but whether it is an air ship, carry
ing an immense beacon, or what it is
they do not know.
It was Hr6t discovered at Vinton
about 8 o'clock in the evening. The
Burlington. Cedar Rapids & Northern
operator at that place notified the dis
patcher at tho general office In this
city, and more than a score of people
here watched the mysterious object
until it sank behind the horizon.
When first seen hero It was in the
northwest heavens at an angloof
about 40 degrees. It was soon notice
able that it was moving in a north
erly direction and evidently at a ranld
rate. It was like an immense star,
only it was twico as large as the
largest and brightest slar in tho fir
mament. With tho naked eye it
could bo seen without trouble that It
was swaying out of its direct course,
first a little to tho right and then a
little to tho left. For tho larger
part of tho time it gave a clear white
light like a star;(but at times tho color
would change and it would become a
bright red. At 10 o'clock It had sunk
behind tho horizon.
Operators along the line of tho Bur
lington Cedar Rapids & Northern and
other railways were notified, and
track was kept of tho mysterious air
ship until along after midnight. At
10:30 o'clock, after it has disappeared
from view it was visible at North
wood, a town in tho northern tier of
Iowa counties, near the Minnesota
state line. At that time It was di
rectly west, it evidently having
changed its course slightly after leav
ing here. At Waseca It was seen
about midnight, and at that time was
traveling west. Further communica
tion along the Minneapolis & St.
Louis road was then abandoned, as
tho sky north of there was overcast
The dispatchers at the general of
fices of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids
& Northern did not give up tho chase,
however, and at 1 o'clock were re
warded by having It reported from
Madison, S. x., that the air ship was
visible from there and that It was in
the western heavens and traveling
westward. Madison Is in the south
west corner of South Dakota, and the
air ship, or whatever it may be, had
changed its course from almost duo
north, when it was seen here, to
No one here can offer any explana
tion whatever. They know that
some mysterious object Is fleating:
through the heavens In a rather reck
less, haphazard manner, quito out of
ordinary, but further than this it is
all conjecture. There Is posltlyely no
fake about it, a fact which can be at
tested to by hundreds.

New York, April 15. A World
special from Madrid says:
Political and diplomatic circles in
Madrid are animatedly discussing the
improvement of tho prospects of
Spanish rule In Cuba In consequence,
it Is said, of an active exchange of
confidential and unofficial communi
cations between the United States
and Spanish governments since Mc
Kinley and Sherman took office.
It seems that Spanish diplomacy
has intimated at Washington that
Spain cannot entertain any sugges
tion of American mediation to obtain
the recognition of tho Cuban insur
gents and that Spain asks only that
American executive continue to check
and punish filibustering expeditions
and separatists Juntas ana popagranda
whenever the Spanish legation and
consuls produce sufficient evidence of
their existence, as was done recently
In the case of tho Now York separatist
Junta's correspondence with instruc
tions to Cuban Insurgents.
Spanish diplomacy was authorized
to give unofficial, confidential verbal
ussurances that If the American gov
ernment did that much Spain consid
ered herself quite equal to tho task of
shortly reducing the rebellion to such
a pass that the Madrid government
would be Justified in the eyes of pub
lic opinion in Spain and tho colonics

very liberal spirit, and in its wake ex
tensive tariff reforms that would
make very easy afterwards a treaty of
commerce between the United States
nnd Cuba and Porto Rice.
In this way the American state do
partment was given to understand
that Spain will In tho future deal
more leniently with tho separatists,
and that when homo rulo is put in
force, a general amnesty will bo ar
ranged to Include all rebels submit

Vienna, April 15. The best In
formed diplomats here regard war as
Inevitable. They say the strain can
not mucli longer bo borno by either
Turkey or Greece, nnd that tho time
has passed for tho powers to attempt
to Intervene. In viow of tho danger
ous position assumed by Greece, the
question Is reiterated, whether sho
does not count upon some power com

as analogous to tho time when Servla
