With men he attacked the trocha near San Marcos, routed the force which he met and sent men across into the Havana province. Maceo is reported to have men, nearly all well armed. In the attack on the trocha four companies of Cu- ban women took part. They joined the insurgents because their homes were destroyed by the Spanish. Many ot them mourn the loss of relatives killed bv Weyler's troops. They hate tne Spanish bitterly. In the battle they fought like fury, the _T f wounded Spaniards and hacking them with machetes.

This is exactly as the Hull men wanted it and they voted as a unit in the convention for exactly this result, every Hull delegate voting to give Dr. Bevington his strength as a complimentary matter. The ington men can claim nothing rrom this, as there was absolutely no ob- jection to it or the part of the Hull forces who voted with them on the proposition.

Havana, June S.-A local newspaper prints an interview with Consul General Lee on the subject of his mission in -svnicu Lee is quoted as saying that he came to inform himself on the problem presented. In Cuba and would report to TV ashmgton with impartiality and justice. Consul- General Lee visited the Americans im- prisoned in the Cabanas fortress. He found the Competitor men very Wretched and m filthv -quarters. He will apply for their relief at once. It is reported that no for- mal charg-e has yet been made in the casQ of Thos. R. Dawley, correspondent foi tne Harpers. It is expected that he will be re- leased soon. Lee received a letter from Dawley, written in prison, which "Sir- I have the honor to call your atten- tion 'to the fact that I am an American citizen, born in New York, an.d prisoned in a military prison without ing any hearing whatever. I took up my in Artemisa about the first of May "ait. The calador of the place threatened to arrest me at the time be- cause? I was an American.

However, after they had carried Madison county on a vote of 50 39 they were fair enough to concede to Dr. Bevington all the frag- ments (and they were few) they could gather up, which simply amounts to a compliment, Of about four votes in the congressional convention. The Hull victory in Madison county is conceded by even the Bevington supporters to be full and complete in detail. They had absolute control of the convention and did not lose a point in the whole con- test. It is one of the greatest victories ever won in Madison county and only indicates the popularity of Captain Hull in this agricultural county. The people here appreciate his efficient services in congress and that is why they overwhelmingly captured every- thing- in sight for him at the primaries and convention. The talk of 'railroad money" and all that, indulged in by the mugwump Des Moines News and in Dr. Bevington's interview with a Leader reporter is laughed at by the people of this coun- ty in general. It is absolutely absurd in every particular, only the efforts of a dying contingency to make capital out of the fragments of a sinking craft. It was a magnificent Hull victory in every particular and starts a boom which will result in the renomination of Captain Hull, one of the very best congressmen that was-ever sent to con- gress from the Seventh congressional district. _______ The best biscuit you ever tasted can be.made with Price's Baking Powder.

CORBETT VS. SHARKEY. Champion Heavy Weight Will At- tempt to Do Up the Marine in ________ Cal., June rangements for a four-round go be- tween James J. Corbett, champion heavyweight, and Tom Sharkey, sailor pugilist were to be concluded today. -V few changes wore to be made in the original scheme suggested by the Na- Athletic club, under whcss aus- pices the mill will be held. The first Idea was that Corbett should get 50 cent of the gross receipts provid- in- he put Sharkey out in four rounds. As it now stands Jim will get 50 per cD'nt no matter what the outcome of the contest may be. So far as Sharkey is concerned the club will look out for his financial interests. If he should put up a better ngnt than Corbett tie will be entitled to a. In other words the decision will be on the merits of the contest. Sharkey will not be entitled to a draw if Corbett fails to knock him out. The decision will be left then entirely to the referee. Of course if Corbett is knocked out Sharkey will be entitteld to a decision. The only way he can obtain a draw'is to make equally as good a fight as his opponent. The date of the fight in all probability will be June 24. Scarcely anything else is discussed In sporting circles, clubs and by men about town. At first people were in- clined to think the affair all a hoax, but when assured that Corbett had tered into. The senate has made public the text of the treaty. It provides for the ap- pointment of a joint commission to as- certain the amount of the damages sus- tained by the owners of the British sealing vessels seized in Bering Sea by the United States revenue cutters before they had authority to do so under the terms of the modus Vivendi or approved decision of the Paris arbi- ;ration tribunal. The convention proper provides that all claims arising under the treaty of 1892 and awards and findings of the iribunal of arbitration shall be re- 'erred to the two commissioners, one appointed by Great Britain and the other by the United States, these com- missioners to meet in Victoria, B. C. If either so requests they shall also sit in San Francisco. The decisions reached by the com- missioners in each claim shall be ac- cepted by the two governments a-s final.

Washington, D. C., June The sen- ate committee on appropriations de- cided to report the new general defi- ciency bill as it came from the house. The action was not unanimous. It is evident there will be objection to the the passage of the bill in this shape. FIFTY-FOURTH CONGRESS New Deficiency Bill Taken Up in the Senate. Washington, D. June The nw framed to. meet the presi- dent's objection, was taken up after further conference had been ordered on th-a Indian and District of Columbia appropriation bill. After some sparring the bill was passed as it came from the house. When this action of the senate, was an- nounced in the house the members cheered. Mr. Dingley said the action of the senate assured adjournment tomo-r- cw. Before the passage, Mr. Harris, demo- crat of Tennessee, offered an amend- ment covering the claims under the Bowman act. but after some debate it was voted out of order. A letter from the president was read consenting to the withdrawal by the Chickasaw In- dians of of their trust funds in the treasury and a resolution was pass- ed assenting to the withdrawal. A bill was also passed amending the law for punishment for transporting or gelling liquors or wines under any other than the proper name and brand. BOUND TO HAVE A QUORUM.

Heavy buy- ing and selling by John Cudahy and prominent brokers were the chief in- fluences, though a number of bits of news on the current crop also af- fected prices. the commenced speculating on the out- come. Although Corbett does not claim that he will p'ut out the Marine in the specified time, he admits he will ad- minister a terrific beating to him. He says the real cause for his accepting the proposition is his desire to prove to his friends that the stories of his degeneration are out of joint.
