HAVANA, June 7.— General Maximo Gomez, the former commauderin- chief of the Cuban army, issued his farewell manifesto yesterday. In substauce it says: " The mission I have been entrusted with is nearly concluded. I have attempted to find a solution of questions concerning the army which I commanded during tho bloodiest war known in America. I am now leaving regretfully to attend to private business, parting word to the people for whom liavo sacrificed 30 years of my life anii to my friends in tho army jnst disbanded, which action should have been taken instantly after the removal of the bloody weight of Spain's merciless regime. We wanted and depended U] » u foreign intervention to terminate the war. This occurred at tho most terrible moment of our contest and resulted in Spain'* defeat. But none of us thought this exraordiuary ovent would bo followed by military occupa tiou of the country by our allies, who rate us as a people incapable of acting for ourselves and who have reduced us to obedience, to submission and to the tutelage imposed by force of cireuin stances. This cannot be our ultimate eud after the years of struggle, and wo should aid by every pacific method in finishing the work of organizing, which tho Americans accepted in the protocol, and which is as disagreeable for them as for ourselves. This aid will prove usolesa without concord among all the island ers. Therefore, it is necessary to forget ptist disagreements to completely unite all elements and to organize a po litical party which is needed in any country. We must make, useless by onr behavior the presence of a strange power in the island and must assist tho Americans to complete the honorable mission they have been compelled to assume by force of circumstances. L, as one ot the first Cubans, although one of our last old soldiers, and not far from the grave, without passions or ambitions, call on you with the sincerity of a father and urgo a cessation of tho superfluous discussions and the creation of parties of all kinds which disturb the country and tend to cause anarchy. My mission having ended, I will absent myself temporarily to embrace my family, but I will return shortly - to Cuba, which I love as much as my own land. A d v a n c e I n P r i c e o f P l o w s .

WASHINGTON, June 7.— A Missouri delegation appointed by the state Re publican committee yesterday called on the president and Director Merriam of the census bureau and protested against the method of proportioning tho census enumerators for Missouri equally between Democrats and Republicans, but it is understood there will be no change in the plan of division originally made.

The entlinsiasm and military spirit of the enlisted force and subordinate officers of the division during the operations of the mouth have been a constant sonrce of inspiration and confidence. Hurried from one state of danger aud exertion to another, these splendid men have responded in every instance with alacrity and that soldierly simplicity and directness of action which have always been the best characteristics of the profession. The difficulties attending the execution of tactical operations on an extended line, such us that occupied by the division during the month, involve great presence of mind and endless exertion on the part of brigade and regimental commanders. The decision and sustained vigor of these officers insured such nnity and strength through out the command that every- obstacle was quickly overcome and every prearranged scheme carried out precisely as planned The force and effect of command depend largely upon the assistance of staff officers who *  natural ability and experience join the spirit of enterprise. In respect of tlie? e essential ' qualifications, the stuff service at. these, head quarters lias been greatly favored, and the highest appreciation of the zealous and intelligent work of these officers is cordially expressed. At some approprP ate time in the fntnre recommendation will be submitted embracing the entire division, with a view to suitable special rewards for individual boldness and meritorious services throughout the campaign. A UNIQUE OPERATION. when Dr. James P. Mann exhibited t he successful results of an operation he had recently performed The patient was a 13- year- old boy whose right leg and foot were of normal size, hut the left leg was a s large as a full giuwn man's, while the foot was so big thut a man's No. 14 shoe' was necessary to incase it. The foot was 12 inches long and the three smaller toes measured 6 inches in circumference and ->! j inches in length. A remarkable feature was that the bony as well as the soft tissues were enlarged Dr. Mann, after subjecting the foot to the X rayB, made deep incisions and pared down the bones, besides cutting away the soft tissaes. The lad's foot was then incased in plaster of paris. The plaster was removed the other day in the presence of a number of medical men. when it was found that the operation bad been entirely successful and- that not only was the- foot of normal size, but within a few days the boy will be able to walk w i t h . i t— SDoclal to New York World: concessions iu the ceded islands. Hen- Bebel assailed the strikes bill and said it constituted the most violent attack ever made on the freedom and human dignity of the working classes.
