Havana, Doc. 21. Maj r Ge jural
' Leonard Wood formally took chargo
of tho govermir-gcnurars ollico at !
o'clock this morning. His 11 rest act
was to accept the resignation of tho
members of tho advisory cabinet of
General Urooko. Theso ottioers, after
considering the question over night,
hud decided to insist on retiring. Al
most without exception they had ren
dered themselves particularly obnox
ious to a majority of tho Cubaos. One
prominent Cuban general said today:
"The only chance General Uroolto's
secretaries have, if they wish to re
habilitate themselves in the eyes of
their countrymen, is to resign, and
thus for a time to bring forgetfulncss."
j The Bamo general, discussing Gen
eral Brooke's farewell proclamation,
j "The proclamation is ill-advised.
Cuba is bound, in tho course of time,
with food and without war. to arrive
at a state of comparative comfort. No
man has a right to regard himself as
tho solo cause of such improvements.
As a matter of fact, uudei General
Brooke's administration tho military
authorities overrode the civil a.d
there is les civil government now
than before. As to the courts, they
are the same corrupt organiz itions
and ate virtually unchanged by any
important particular. All this, in my
opinion, most Cubans attribute to the
bad advice given Geueral Biooke by
The Lucha, contrasting General
Brooke with General Wood's advent,
"General Brooke's proclamation
was unfortunate as it contained errors.
General Wood, although promising
nothiDg, speaks volumes by bis quiet,
domestic manner of taking charge of
Brooke Will Take His Time.
Washington, Dec. 21. When Ma
jor Geueral Biooke was relieved from
duty in command of the division of
Cuba he was instructed to proceed to
Washington and report to the adjut
ant general for further orders of the
secretary of war. As a result of the
cotrespondence between General
Brooke and Secretary Root, the for
mer has been authorized to suit his
own convenience in the execution of
his orders, tho idea being to allow
him to make the trip from Havana to
Washington by easy stages.
General Brooke has been in a trop
ical climato for nearly two years and
as he is nearly sixty-four years old it
has been deemed best for tho protec
tion of his health to permit him to
accustom himself gradually to the
winter climate of his country by short
stops before coming to Washington.
It is therefore likely that he will not
reach this city much before Feb. 1.
Five Million Likely to Go.
New YoiiK,Dec. 21. Sterling bank
ers predicted today numerous gold en
gagements for Stturday, but all said
it was impossible to estimate with ac
curacy how.much the shipments would
amount. to. One firm admitted that it
might ship from $500,000 to $l,00i,000,
as tomorrow's requirements suggested.
It was believed that at least $5,000,000
would go out.
At the present rate the margin of
profit on gold exports would be small,
it was said, but the demand for the
metal abroad was suffi dent to make
"special transactions" profitab e at
It was said today that Heidelberger,
Ichheimer & Co. and Mueller, Scahall
& Co., might each ship $500,000
A well known marine underwriter
said that insurance would be obtained
tomorrow for as much gold as local
bankers cared to send by the Etruria.
Although $5,000,000 might be a large
sum to risk on any one steamer, twice
that liability would probably be as
sumed by insurance companies, if
banking interests demanded it.

New YoRK,Dec. 21. The converted
cruiser Dixie arrived from Philadel
phia today, having on board 300 lands
men from the Mississippi river valley,
who are to be converted into sailors.
Tho ship, with the recruits aboard,
will circumnavigate the globe, show
ing them the sights while teaching
them how to follow the sea to manage
Uicle Sam's navy. Since the restora
tion of peace it has been difficult to
get sailors to-enlist. It is thought the
present plan will provide all ths sail
ors required and a chance will be given
the crew for pi aces on the new battle
The Dixie will remain in dry dock
until after Christmas, when it will go
to Norfolk, thence to the West Indies
and later to Europe,probably to France
first. As no other government has
ever tiied to make sailors out of farm
ers, the experiment will be watched
with interest by other nations.

Washington, I), c. 21. Jamo-s
Duane Taylor, one cf the important
ollicers in New York City of tho Wag
ner I'ii lace Car company arid a son-in-law
of the founder of tho company,
committed suicide today shortly af er
nnoii at the (i nfton hotel in this city
by cutting his throat with a razor.
Mr. Taylor was suffering from some
nervous alTection ctui-od by illness and
tho act was committed apparently on
tho impulse of tho moment. Death
was instantaneous. Deceased was
sixty-three years of ago.

son, James I)., and Jay Taylor and Dr.

had boen suffering from homo nervous
affi ction for seme timo and was
brought hero under chargo of a physi
cian to see if a change of scene would
not provo beneficial to him.
Tho coroner viewed tho body this
afternoon and gave ' verdict of death
by suicide. It was said at the hotel
tonight that tho body had been taken
away, but the employes professed not
to know where.
The body was dispatched for the late

Frank fout, Ky., Dec. 20. Though
notices of contest have been prepared
against both Governor Taylor and
Lieutenant Governor Marshall, they
have rot ben served and probably
will not bo until Friday. The delay
in serving the notices is said to have
: been planned to prevent taking depo
sitions prior to tho meeting of"! be

ring to have the whole proceedings
conducted by the contest committee of
tho legislature instead of in part be

will not confino themselves to rebuttal
of tho grounds of contest laid down in

expect to show flagrant frauds in many
of the large demrcratic counties.
California Golden Jubilee.
SAN Jose, Cal., Dec. 20. The cele
bration of tho golden jubilee of the
founding of California's government
began hero today. The chief feature
of today's proceedings was the repro
duction of the inauguration of Peter
II. Llurnett, the first governor of the
state. The part of Governor Burnett
wastiken by his son, who read the
original inaugural address delivered
on that occasion.
General Joseph Gtewart, U. S. A., of
Berkeley, represented General Ben
nett Riley, who was military and civil
governor up to the t ine of Governor
Burnett's inauguration. This was fol
lowed by a re-enactment of other inci
dents of that day. Among the pio

New York Evening Post: An un

the police board by Patrolman George
W. Rogers of the Gates avenue station,
Brooklyn, who wants to wear eye
glasses. The lids of the policeman's
eyes are inflamed, and the strong wind
affectti his eyes greatly. This is a new
question for the board to decide. Some
sergeants, captains and other oflleers
use glasses on desk duty, but no pa
trolman has ever worn them on patrol
duty. It Is hardly thought that If the

you must take internal remedies. Hall's Catarrh
