Cuban engineers have been appointed as rapidly as pos sible and thus the department of pub lic works will gradually come entirely under Cuban control, subject only to General Wood's approval. The military commanders through out the island have received instruc tions to visit the prisons in their juris dictions at least once a montb,to make full reports and to prevent the recur rence of such abuses as have long ex isted but are being rapidly remedied. All department commanders have been notified that tne military must not be employed, except where the civil power is ineffective. Senor Federico Mora, the supreme court fiscal, has addressed a letter to the judges of the supreme court say ing that the judge in charge ot the custom house fraud cases claims that the proper course of law has been ignored by the intervening govern ment in that individuals, sanctioned by Collector Bliss, can be prosecuted.

CHICAGO, Jan. 11. A special cable to the Tribune from London says that Lieutenant General Lord Methuen, commanding the column advancing to the relief of Kimberley, is to be re lieved of his command within two weeks. Later he will be sent to Cape town and eventually ordered home. When he reaches England he will be retired. These facts have been con firmed by an official of the war office. Lord Metbuen's case is a sad one. Always a man of grand physique a clever boxer and an all-around sports-man-his constitution began to show signs of breaking down almost immed iately after he took command of his division. Three days after the battle of Bel mont General Wcolsley suggested to the officials of the war office that Me thuen be relieved. His advice was not heeded. The wisdom of the aged, but keen, commander-in-chief of the British army is now realized to the fullest extent by the war officials, who scoffed at his suggestion. Friends of Lord . Methuen insist he is only broken in health, that the 6train of many campaigns has 'shat tered his naturally nervous system. Those who know the circumstances and the situation on Modder river equally well, and who are willing to state facts plainly, say that Methuen'a mind is unbalanced. The commander of the Modder river forces has bom barded the government with some of the most remarkable messages ever received from a general. Oae re ceived a few days ago is a fair sample of the rest. It contained just three words: "Darkness after dawn." AFTER ST.

By putting a penny in the slot the letter is thrust into the slot and a dry or ribband stamp puts a stamp on the corner of the letter, when It can be dropped into the box.

Many people have accustomed them selves to do without salt, and the other day we recorded with some skepticism a story that a busy medico of Hawic (N.

This gentleman, Dr. John Haddon, now writes to us: "I should like to be allowed to assure you and your readers that it is quite possible, if a strict vegetarian diet is adhered to. We tret nlcnty of fluid In a cud of tp nr tn tmit nr other Manila, Jan. 10. Reports from the movements of the American com manders south of Manila show that General Bates and General Wheaton are at Perez das Marinas and General Schwan at Silang, all awaiting the ar rival of provision wagons. Recon noissances have shown that 2,000 armed insurgents have retired to the moun tains from the district between IndaDg and Maig, and that others have re treated along the coast from Isoveleta toward Bataogas. Last night Nolan's squadron of the Eleventh cavalry drove a body of in surgents from Malg. One American was killed and two were wounded. Thirteen dead Filipinos were found. The movement largely resembles Gen eral Schwan 's experience in the same country, except that the towns are now being garrisoned and that the in surgents refuse to fight, retreating southward and dividing into small bands, with the apparent intention of reassembling later. The plan of catching a large number between two brigades has failed. About a hucdred insurgents have been killed, but com paratively few arms have been taken. The region is full of amigos, who doubtless have been bearing arms which they have hidden. The women and children remain in their homes and the insurgents, as they fall back, release all prisoners they have cap tured. Claims of Catholic Church. It is asserted on high authority that Archbishop Nozaleda contends in his interviews with Monsiegnor Chapelle, the papal delegate on behalf of the Roman church and the brotherhoods that the titles to all property held by the church and the brotherhoods in the Philippines should be recognized; that the Roman Catholic doctrine should be taught in the primary schools; that the existing religious or ders should continue to administer the parishes; that other parishes should be established under the same control. and tbat the parochial control of ceme teries should continue. He also lays stress, in his conten tions, upon the importance of allow ing the church to administer its own affairs without state interference.upon the necessity of a regime that will guarantee the liberty of the church, upon the desirability of European clergy, the establishment of a new col lege for the instruction of native priests aud the continuation of indi rect contributions for the maintenance of churches and clerey, and upon the expedieccy of ma'ntaining the system of parochial f es, including revenues from births, marriages, funerals, dis pensations and apostolic indulgences. In addition Archbishop Nozaleda ad- .. . . r . i vlr'es tne continuation oi iuo cuunu a control of pawnshops and certain des ignated hospitals and schools, together with the establishment of a special form of parochial administration, ex acted by the actual .conditions in the Philippines. Finally be makes a plea for the continuation of the present missionary work of the church. Rebels Levy Tribute.

The first orange tree Introduced into France, known by the name oi tne 'Grand Counetable," was planted at Pathpelune, about 1416. by Eleanore ol Castllle. wife of Charles HI., king ot Nazarre. It was later taken to Chan tllly, then to Fontalnebleau, and final ly. In 1684. to the orangery of Ver sailles, where, we believe, it still lives. Beside the orange trees of Versailles of the Luxembourg and of tne ruii eries, the orangeries of the palace ol Comprlegne yet contain about thirty very beautiful specimens, uauus cer tainly from several centuries, some in troduced under Napoleon I.

The very best that can be done and which will soon be done will be to build a ship with only 1,000 tons displacement, which will require 18,000 horse power to send it thirty knots an hour. The Parsons Atlantic liner is to have a speed or knots, 18.000 tons displacement and 38,000 horse power. This mams, so to speak, the high-water mark In na val engineering. Smallest Current Coin In Europe. The smallft current coin in Europe at the present time and the one having, the least value Is the Greek lepton. The lepton Is, according to the decimal monetary syste, current In all coun tries belonging to the Latin union. Some idea of this modest little disk of copper may be gathered from the fact that the lepton is the one-hundredth part of a drachma. The Greek drachma usually passes for the same value that a franc piece does; that Is, It is about equal to 20 cents of our money. J.

At Walleck, near Workshop, the duke of Portland possessed one of the most magnificent vineyards In the United Kingdom. One of his vines produced a luxuriant bunch of Syrian grapes, the weight of which was esti mated at nine and one-half pounds, and was Bent as a present to the Mar quis of Rockingham at his residence, Wentworth house. Four peasants were employed in carrying it on a staff sharing the handsome burden by turns. At Hampton court there it still another very famous vine called the Red Hamburg. It produces on an average 1,500 to 2,000 branches, and tht number has even been known to amount to 2.200. Another remarkable fact concerning this vine is tbat its age is equal to that of the oak. and a tree of 100 years' growth may be rcc oned in its prime.
