Castillo, a Cuban-American who has been campaigning in Cuba with the army of liberation for about a year, in a recent letter to his daughter in Washington, gives a very aitiactive picture of the camp life of tbe insur- gents says the Minneapolis Tribune. Writing from camp Candida, lie describes it as a temporary station, but mote solidly built up than the usual nigut bivouac in the bnart of the tropical forest. "Little white build- ings with thatched he says, "are in a line facing a clearing, where the horses are tethered by night and the men are drilled by day. Coffee and A tsr R. FARNtWORTH. V.

It is he exclaims enthusiasti- cally, "the fertile valleys and the mountains beyond, the rivulets with their cascades, all are moat beautiful." He sajs the only commissary depart- ment the Cuban soldiers' have, and'in fact all they need, is tbe vast forest it- self, bursting with luscious wild fruit, and alive with the notes and feather- ing of birds. A regiment, wearily cutting its path through the tangled underbrush, will call a halt in the midst of some verdant space just be- fore the days fades. "Dismount! Teth- are the commands, and at the or- der saddles are lifted from the. horses' hot backs, and they are put to forage on the leaves of the llamon trees. The bugle sounds again, and tbe soldiers scatter into the for- est, leaving only the sentries guarding the saddles, which is about all the bag- gage they postess, having no company wagons with tents, or company chests. Presently the men return, some with hats full of wild yams, like mammoth sweet potatoes; others with fruits, nuts and wild fowl, and a barteiiog and trading goes on such would mark an Irish fair day. Fires are then lighted and the food is cooked. These rations are occasionally varied with supplies of tobacco and other articles brought by farmers who steal in from distant plantations and stealthily depart. After supper the men lie around the dying embers of thtir fires, smoking their long cigars and cigarettes, sacking sugar cane, taUing and singing. The life IB an idlyllic one.

The picture is an interesting one to the American soldiers who may be called to serve in Cuba. If they can escape the sickness incident to the cli- mate, campaigning will not be without its attractions, at least until the rainy season begins. The "Cabinet flember's Wife." The authorship of .the .much-discuss- ed "inner experiences of a cabinet member's printed in the Ladies' Home Journal, will be revealed in the June issue of that magazine, wken the name of Anna Farquhar will appear as author. It Is surmised that tbe domestic experiences described in these letters were those of Mrs. WXH. H. Miller, wife of the attorney-general in president Harrison's Miss Farquhar is known to be a personal friend, of the Miller .family, and to have spent considerable time with them in. Washington during their official residence there. His Patriotic Efforts Carried the Sen-, ate for Recognition. Wm. E In" Chicago Record: Mr. Bryan did a great deal of hard work in behalf of the recognition of the'Cuban insurgents. He had an in- terview with nearly every silver demo- crat upon the senate floor, and him to sustain the minority report; first, because it is a democratic docu- ment and in the same line taken by that party in the house of representa- tives, and, secondly, because liis sym- pathies are earnest in behalf of tbe in- surgents. Mr. Bryan insisted the mas- ses of the people are almost unanimous in favor of the recognition of the Gomez government, and public opinion will justify it, regardless ot theprotests of the foreign powers. The fact that the European governments do not ap- prove our policy in this respect is in it- self a good reason why it should not be abandoned, according to Mr. Bryan's They have n5 business to inter- fere in American affairs and the often- er they are told so the better it will be for both hemispheres. Mr.-Bryan was very urgent alsp in advocating imme- diate action, and took the grounds that if the democrats and populists of the senate would insist upon passing the Foraker resolution without further debate they TVOUId place-themselves in an excellent position Before the coun- try. _-_- B Alight Have Been." Ex-Gov. Allgeld: "During-Cleveland's term .the sad 'cry-of starving and bleeding Cuba was heard by tbe world. All she asked was recognition, which would give her bel- ligerent rights and enable her to buy in our markets. She would Bght own battles, and needed no interven- tion. This nation spoke in tones of thunder tbat the Spanish assassin must not be helped by us, and tbat Cuba must be recognized. Congress prompt- ly passed sucU a resolution. Had this been acted on there would today be no Cuban question, for, once able to buy supplies in our market on the same footing with Spain, the brave Cubans would long ago have driven every Spaniard off the island. But then, as now, the voice of the money-changer silenced the voice1 of common sense and of justice. The president disregarded the people and ignored a co-ordinate branch of the government, and the great navy of this proud and free republic was made" to perform the service of a policeman for the convenience of Spain.

A In the discussion in the senate last William V. Allm, the distinguished populist senator from Nebraska, said lie "wanted to call attention to the remarkable scene that occurred at the White House on April 7. He referred to the call of the repre- sentatives of the six great powers upon the president and to exchange the notes on the Hispando-American sit- uation. He declared that no similar scene had ever been witnessed in this country." "I want to register my said" Mr. Allen, "against.the representatives of the so-called powers ot Europe en- tering the White House and telling this'country what it shall do. I cannot understand why the1, president did not inform them that this country would not tolerate any interference from them; yet here is the first step towards the breaking down' of the' Monroe doctrine, and' the .destruction of the nation. And it is that these same so-called powers are to go further, and make another assault upon the White House with more 'pressing demands. WUhin six; months, these same powers will be urging the United' States to agree to arbitration in' order that our liability for Spanish-Cuban; bonds may be determined."
