Engineer officers will act under the
direction of Senor Villalon, secretary

have been appointed as rapidly as pos

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

full reports and to prevent the recur

All department commanders have

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
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."

Slot Machine Stamps Letters.
English postal authorities are mak
ing experiments In an automatic letter-mailing
device which will do away
with the old style of "stick-with-a-lick"
postage stamp. The new appara
tus resembles a slot machine, and Is
an adaptation of this idea. It can be
placed on the Btreet corners or In the
postofflces. 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.
The machine cancels the stamp with
the date, time of day. etc., all at one
operation. -

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
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 inhabitants of the islands of
Lyte and Samar are Buffering from

A Historic Orange Tree.
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

very beautiful specimens, uauus cer
tainly from several centuries, some in

will require 18,000 horse power to send

Smallest Current Coin In Europe.
The smallft current coin in Europe

The lepton Is, according to the decimal

Some idea of this modest little disk
of copper may be gathered from the
fact that the lepton is the one-hundredth

A Wonderful Grape Tine.
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.
