FortfeUe) A Friend of llea
na Bxplalas tha SUu
Uea Othar Politic.
Cucvxiuu, Ohio, Nov. 25. A close
friend of Chairman Banna to-day ex
plained under what circumstances Mr.
Ilanna-would accept a place in the
cabinet "Mr. Hanna," he said, "will
either go into the cabinet or he will be
tie next Republican United States
tenator-from Ohio. .
"Mr. Hanna'a course may be decided
by Senator John Sherman. Both the
, chairman and Major McKinley under
' stand that, and they are waiting to
lean what position Mr. Sherman will
take. Mr. McKinley wants Mr. Hnna
to accept the treasury portfolio, but
Mr. Hanna has other aspirations. He
believes it would be a greater honor to
be senator from Ohio. But Senator
Sherman stands in the way of that.
"Major McKinley will offer Senator
Sherman the position of secretary of
. state, and If he declines to go into the
cabinet then Mr. Hanna will accept
the position of secretary of the treas
ury. Should Mr. Sherman decide,
t however, to become one of President
McKinley 's advisers, thus vacating his
teat in the senate, Mr. Hanna will be
come his successor. Mr. McKinley will
not decide on his course until he learns
exactly what position Senator Sher
man will take."
This same friend of Mr. Hanna said
that it had practically been decided
that Congressman Boutelle, of Maine,
would be the secretary of the navy.
Despite the fact that both General
Miles and Colonel Fred Grant held a
conference with McKinley, neither of
them, says this gentleman, will get the
portfolio of war

CHAIRMAN JONES TALKS.
the Dingier BUI Will
Washington, Nov. 25. Senator
James K. Jones of Arkansas, the chair
man of the Democratic national com
mittee, returned to the city to-day for
the Congressional session. In his talks
the Senator expressed the opinion that
It was not at all likely the Dingley
revenue bill, passed by the House at
the last session, would be favorably
aoted on in the Senate. He favors a
tax on beer in place of any general
tariff revision, and says by making
this additional tax SI per barrel about
1 10,000, 000 per year revenue would be
derived. - ''"r - "r '

Competitor Prisoners Tried Again In Tlo
latlon of Consul General' Protect.
New Yobk, Nov. 25. A dispatch to
the World from Havana, under date of
November 20, says: The Cmpetitor
prisoners have been tried by court
martial in the fortress La Cabana, in
spite of Consul General Lee's official
protest, filed just before he left Ha
vana. The exceptions taken by the prison
ers were overruled by the naval courts.
General Lee's note was pigeonholed
and, in defiance of Secretary OIney's
intimation of disapproval, the Compe
titor's crew and Owen Melton, the
American newspaper correspondent,
have again been tried by a drumhead
court, sitting within the walls of a
Spanish fortress, where, according to
Captain General Weyler's orders, the
representative of the United States
consulate may not enter.
The prisoners were allowed neither
interpreter nor counsel. Those partly
acquainted with Spanish were com
pelled to interpret for the others.
So quietly was the affair conducted
that Acting Consul General Springer
does not yet know, it is said, that the
case was virtually closed November 14,
on which day Melton, Maaa, Dr. Vedia
and the witness, George Ferran, were
forced by Naval Judge Fernandez to
sign statements admitting their com
plicity in the filibustering expedition
which the Competitor is alleged to have
brought, under Monzen and Laborde,
to the Pinar del Eio coast. This writ
ten evidence is now under considera
tion by the court .
Judge Haul said to-day that a decis
ion may be rendered at any moment
It is expected that all the members
of the party whose American citizen-
snip has not been clearly shown wul
be shot The bona fide Americans
probably will be sentenced to from
three to ten years' imprisonment in
some Spanish penal station off tht
coast of Africa.
