Welcome, CHICAGO, Oct. much of the population of Chicago an could find en- trance to the auditoriums of Central Music hall and the Y. M. C. A. build- ings shouted itself hoarse in approba- tion of a series of resolutions in which the United States government is asked to recognize the Cubans as belligerents. Such genuine enthusiasm has seldom been witnessed in this city, and on no occasion were words spoken by men more full of the hearts and soul of the speakers. Mayor George B. Swift pre- sided at the main meeting in Central Music hall, while Judge William A. Viuent was chairman of the overflow meeting in the Association building. Seventy-five vice presidents occupied seats on the platforms. They were leading business men of the city. Elo- quent speeches were made, and their ringing words brought forth cheer upon cheer. Enthusiasm prevailed to a fevei heat, and the following was unani- mously passed upon: We, citizens of Chicago, gathered to express our deep sympathy with the Cubans in their brave struggle to secure for themselves and their condition the blessings of independence, liberty and self-government, present the following: "We hold these truths to be self evi- dent, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights; among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of to "secure these rights governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these endrf, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it and to institute a new government, laying its founda- tions on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence indeed will dictate that governments., long estab- lished should not be chauged-for- light and transient, causes; and accordingly all experience has shown, that mankind is more disposed to suffer, wh'ile evils as sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pur- suing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty to throw off such govern- ment and provide new guards for their future security. "This historic declaration, made by the founders of our republic on July 4, 1776, was true then, and is true today. For many unhappy years the Cubans have been most shamelly oppressed and cruelly burdened until the yoke of Spanish rule has become If the fathers of American independ- ence were justified in casting off the oppressive dominion of Great Britain, the Cuban patriots of today have far greater justification for their attempt to overthrow the tormenting, impover- ishing, heartless tyranny of the Span- ish government. "We desire publicly to express our indignation that in this year, 1895, the spectacle is presented of shiploads of soldiers sent miles across the ocean to America, 'the laud of the to shoot down in cold blood a cour- ageous people who simply desire to gov- ern themselves. "Our indignation is further aroused at the unspeakable cruelty of the Span- iards towards the Cubans in this strug- gle. Death seems to be the penalty meted out to all Cubans captured under arms, and even those furnishing medicines to the so-called rebels are to be ruthlessly shot. "We are glad to notice that the course of the Cubans appears to be more humane, and we take this oppor- tunity of congratulating them upon the remarkable progress they' have made in spite of the terrible odds against them. "We believe it to be the privilege and duty of the United States govern- ment to recognize the rights of the Cuban revolutionists as belligerents as soon as practicable, on bemg so re- quested by competent Cuban authority, in accordance with international law, Such action of our government we deem to the Cubans and to the cause of uni- versal liberty. "While disavowing all bitterness of feeling on our part toward the people of we, nevertheless, believe that it is our duty and privilege at this time, as citizens of this free republic, thus to express our heartfelt'sympathy with oar Cuban neighbors, living upon an island which nature has made a para- dise, but the cruel methods of the Spanish government have done much to despoil. We respectfully urge our fellow citizens throughout this country to assemble in massmeeting, to diffuse information and thus arouse, or rather deepen, the sympathy of people with the Cubans in their heroic attempt to cast off the yoke of oppression, and to achieve'that independence aud free- dom which are the great highways to happiness and prosperity. "We also urge the press and the pul- ftt, and also with voice land prayer, to continue their help to the right eona flause of the men who are bravely fight- ing for home and native land.. "We respectfully, but urgently, ap- peal to the citizens of all the republics in the three Americas to give emphatic expression to their sympathy with .these struggling people, who are makipg such a gallant fight for that independ- ence from the European rule which the other nations of the New World hare already secured. Be it farther "Resolved, Thai, the organization which arranged for thii "gathering be requested to take charge of and con- tinue the good work so auspiciously begun."

Will Teat His Cltizenaltip. -SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. tion as to whether a Chinaman born on American soil is a citizen of the United States is to be tested in the courts. Wong Kim Ark came here from China, demanding a landing on, the ground that he is a native of California. The collector of the port, while admitting his nativity, refused him J landing, claiming he is not ail American citizen. This decision was in accordance with an arrangement already made with the attorney general, who is anxious to test the right of native-born Chinese to land here. To Avert a Rate War. CHICAGO, Oct. meeting of the executive officers of the western rbacli has been, called to., meet here Thursday, to. take into consideration .freight rates s ituation. Upon that meeting will be imposed the duty of deciding whether rates shall be restored and maintained or a general rate war de- clared. There does not appear to be any other alternative. The entire sit- uation has become so utterly demoral- ized that open warfare cannot be avoided, unless an agreement is reached to restore and main tain rates. Dr. O'Siillivan'a Claim. MONTREAL, Oct. o; Sullivan oi Limerick, Ireland, one of the delegates to the Irish convention held in Chicago last week, is in the city. He has made a statement to the effect that a compact had been made between Justin-Mc- Carthy and the Et. Hon. Arthur J. Balfour, by which the former promises .the government the support of his'fol- lowers in return for Irish home rule. Dr. O'Sullivan says he had the news from McCarthy's own lips and is only afraid that the resolutions passed at the convention may interfere with the plan. To Restore the Whipping Post. WASHINGTON, Oct. preceding the discharge of the grand jury here by Judge Bradley, a written recommendation was submitted to the court favoring the establishment of the whipping post in the District of Colum- bia for the punishment of wifebeaters and petty crinimals. Judge Bradley commented briefly on the recomnfencla- tion and said that he thought such a method of punishment would be pro- ductive of good results. The Allteon Desertion Case. WASHINGTON, Oct. records oi the war department confirm the state- ment of facts in the case of the deserter, Frank Philo Allison, now imprisoned; at Castle William, N. Y., so far as it1 shows that the man surrendered him- self and was sentenced to imprisonmenl as a deserter. They do not show that' he is a nephew of Senator Allison, BOJ that Secretary Lamont promised to have him honorably discharged if ht surrendered himself. WASHINGTON; Oct. 1. Ex-Senator M ahone suffered a stroke of paralysis fit an early hour yesterday morning at his room at Chambefliri's hotel. His 'physicians', Wales and Baker, were in consultation throughout the after- noon and think his chances of recovery ajfi very dotbtful. The relatives of ihe ex-senator have been' summoned from Virginia by telegraph. The en- tire .right siole of the sufferer ig para- lyzed, includingthe tight arm and leg. He is unable; to Speiik except a flfr in- articulate sounds. He has maintained consciousness, however, and seeks aa best he cat; to assist those who are ad- jiamiuistering to his wants. The exact tiiiife at which Mr. Mahone was stricken is-in doubt. Up to 12 o'clock he was in excellent health arid spirits and had given ho; intimation of feeling unwell. No sound was heard from his room after he retired. In the morning Mr. Long, manager of the hotel, went to the gen- eral s- room to call him. He found that he had been vomiting and was unable to speak. This last feature was attributed to exhaustion incident to the vomiting, and for a time no significance wan at- tached to the genaral's failure to talk. Dr. Wales, ex-surgeon general of the navy and a long-time friend of General Mahone, was Sent for, but he not be found. In the meantime it became evident that the general's illness was serious, and Dr. Baker was called in. He nt once pronqunced it a case of paralysis. Dr. Wales arrived shortly afterward and with Dr. Baker took charge of the case. General Mahone appeared to be suf- fering no pain. By motions of his head and a few faint sounds he' made his desires known. Mr. Edmund Waddill; the .senator's secretary, was with him, and at the senator's request, notified the members of his family to come. FREE WOOL AN ADVANTAGE. to the of United States.

He points out that the shipments of Uruguay wools to the United States have largely' increased by reason of the tariff change. "This is greatly beneficial to the in- terests of -the United he adds, "from the fact that the fine gualities raised here have never before" reached the United States. As these fine wools cannot be produced in the United States and at the same time are esson tial to the manufacture of various arti- cles, it is evident that the cheaper they can be made to our manufacturers the mofe they will be enabled to compete for the world's markets as well as sup- ply the home market."
