Fortune awaits the man who shall de

ventilating dwellings and office build
lngs. The average apartment, whether
It Is a residem-e or a sky scraper, is a
mere box. It 1 lighted by windows
which cannot be raised from the bot
tom or lowered from the top without
creating a draught, which is undesira
ble ta all weathers, and especially to be
dreaded in winter. Tightly closed, as
windows are kept during winter, no air
enters except by the opening of doors
and through Imperfections in the win
dow casings. The atmosphere bextinie
stagnant and foul, inducing headache?
and paving the way for all manner ol
pulmonary and bronchial troubles. Our
ancestors secured ventilation by mean
of open fireplaces. We are obliged to
simmer In overhea ted rooms.and in spite
of the boosted Ingenuity of Americans
no one has yet arisen to solve the prob

cessity of nature pure, fresn air.
One means of judging of the progress
of a nation in civilization is to ols'rve
what value It places upon the lives of
Its citizens. The higher the civiliza
tion the greater the protection of the
individual. The United States, though
a newly settled country, prides Itself
upon the security of Its inhabit.!:. is
from many of the dangers of the old
world, but there is one particular In
which slip has hitherto been somewhat
Indifferent. It is the protection against
railroad accidents, the little every day
destruction of human life that Is so
common that, when reading the paper,
we omit the account or merely shudder
and think, "How horrible:" The Eu
ropean papers quote our death count
with a eaecr at American disregard for
life. Let us learn a lesson from En
gland and prevent this dally sacrifice
to Mammon. Let laws be enacted
which shall require eventually that no
street crossing shall be on a level with
the railroad, none but employe be al
lowed or have occasion to go upon th
tracks. To be sure there are disadvant
age In this plan; It would cost money,
would occasion some Inconvenience,
but are these facts to be considered
when human life Is In the balance?
The Indians of the Indian Territory,
who refused to accept the Dawes treaty
laat year, are beginning to find out that
the beat thing they can do is to recon
sider their refusal and accept the treaty
aa a choice of two evils. The four lead
ing tribea In the Territory, the Chero
kee, Cnoctawa, Ohickasawa and
Creeks, have reached a degree of civil
isation that makea them more and
more difficult to get along with. A om
en lesion waa created by Congrena, with
Senator Dawes at lta head, to treat
with the tribes, so as to apportion the
laoda held by them among the tribe In
severalty, thna placing them upon prnc
tlcally the same footing as other Irihab
rtanta of the country, but still leaving
them many of the rights and privileges
they enjoy under the tribal system.
This plan the tribes rejected rather dis
dainfully and the commission had to
give the matter up after long confer
ences with the Indians. But Mr. Cur
tis, a member of the House from Kan
sas, thoroughly understood the Indian's
character and how to deal with bis
prejudices. He Introduced a bill Into
Congress which utterly abolishes tn
Indian tribal relations, allots the tribal
lands In severalty among the members
of the tribe, makes the Indian a citizen
of the United States, remodels thr laws
under which the reservations In the
Indian Territory are held by the tribes
and puts an end to the anomalous con
dition bmw existing under which the
Government haa to make and b bound
by treaties entered Into with a portion
of Its own Inhabitants. The atMolute
certainty that the bill will puu has
made the four tribes see tba the Itest
thing they can do Is to accept tbe pro
posals of tbe Da wen commission and
thus preserve what they can of their
present Independence.

pain' Latent Move.-Doe paln' Arm title
Come Tao Latef-Th Exact Statu of
Affair. What Action Will Coi-gre
Washington, April 11 The pretd
ient's message on Cuba will go to con
gress at noon. Whether it will make a
recommendation upon tbe situation as
presented by Spain's latest move and if
so what form this recommendation will
take, is a matter upon which war or
peace may rest.
If the president should take the ques
tion that Spain's armistice comes too late
or that it does not meet the require
ment of the nation, congress probably
will act with a belligerent resolution
calling upon the president to use the
army a d navy o( the United States to
bring an end to the condition of affair
in Cuba, which he declared to the six
ambassadors of the powers who called
um him Thursday as being "insuffer
able." Should the message take the ground
that Spain's endeavors seem tending in
the proper direction, and that justice
choull permit her an opportunity to a
trial ol her stau-d deBire to end the
inaurrtction, or should the president
simply refer the whole subject to con
giess without recommendation, a condi
tion would arise of which no one tonigift,
could pos. lively see the outcome. So
few congressmen knew the exact status
of affairs that no prediction can be
made as to what action congress would
Kaster Sunday brought little rest to
iho who are dealing with tbe Spanish
e;tua'i. ii. With tbe president's message
ready lo go to congress Spain' grant of
an armistice had brought alsont a new
condition which compelled the president
and his adv sera to meet and consider
and so far as the situation was affected
by Spain's concessions. As a result of
the iimi'ual if not unprecedented condi-tiory-aure
arose for two cabinet meetings
on Sunday, one at noon time lasting an
hour and a half, and the other at 8
o'clock tonight. While the streets were
thronged with people going to their
Easter services early in the day, the
carriages of cabinet officers were center
in; at the White bouse to take up tbe
latest phases of the Spanish situation.
The cabinet meetings led to no change
in the determination that the presi
dent's message would go to congress to
morrow. It seemed evident, however,
from the new conditions presented by
the grant of an armistic that the roes
aage should deal with these conditions
in order thatcongrees might I fully ad
vised on tbe latest phases of the gnbject.'
Cabinet conferences were extremely re
ticent ive r the changes in the message
although it seemed to be understood
that the facts relating to the armistice
would at least be incorporated, even
though the general poller of the mes
sage underwent no change.
The attitude of congress on the genar
al subject is problematic. During tbe
recent days the feeling in both houses
has been intense and it remains to be
seen whether tbe changed conditions
bnught about by the armistice will
suffice to allay this feeling. Resolutions
authorizing intervention are already
prepared, but these were framed when
diplomatic, negotations were in a dead
lock. Diplomatic circles in Washington
were keenly interested In the change
bro-jgbt about by Spain 'a grant of an
armistice. The ambassadors and minis
ters exchanged calls and there was a
general exchange of congratulations, aa
it was felt that the armistice at least
gave time for calmer counsels.
The French ambassador, M. Gabon,
received a cable dispatch from the for
eign office at Paris informing him tbat
the armistice had been granted and waa
wholly without conditions. Besidea
seeing his associates of the diplomatic
corps, the ambassador saw Archbishop
Ireland, who was instrumental in secur
ing the influence of the pope and Joined
the archbishop in expressions of satis
faction. Throughout the negotiations
the French ambassador and the French
government have taken a leading part
in averting an open rupture between
the United States and Spain. While
the British government has been most
sctive in seeing that tbe action of the
powers did not assume a menacing atti
tude toward tbe United States, yet it is
known that Great Britian joins with
the other powers in approving the latest
message of an armistice and it hopeful
that this will clear the way for a fuller
settlement of tbe general Cuban ques
tion. Dervish Koute Complete

Wasuim(;tox, April 13. Consul-Gen-eral
Fitrbugh Lee arrived here from
Havana. A laige crowd of entbusiattit
admirers had gathered at tbe station,
and when the general ctepped from the
train be was greeted with a tremendous
outburst of applause The crowd com
pletely filled the station and extended
far out into Pennsylvania avenue. By
the time General 1-ee was ready to
alight the crowd was so dense abont the
train that even with the assistance of a
platoon of police it as wi'-h difficulty
he reached the plattorm. Several per
sonal friends of the general, among them
a number of ladies, pressed forward and
finally succeeded in grasping him by
the hand. One of the la lies presented
bim a bonquet of reset, tied together
by ribbon of the national colors and
bearing s tiny confederate battle flag.
Immediately the crowd began to cheer,
and round after round of applause
greeted him as he walked slowly and
uncovered down the long platform of
the station. '
General Lee entered a state depart
mmt carriage and was rapidly driven
up the avenue to the state department.
When tbe carriage drew up at the de
partment a big crowd was assembled on
the portico. A rouung etieer went up
as the general stepped irom the vehicle,
and bowing right and left, hurried into
the building. The cheers had apprised
the clerks and other employes of his
coming, and there was a wiU rush for
the corridor. Oiiicers of t tie army and
navy joined the rush and for the time
being tbe discipline of the building was
The crowd lined up in front of the
elevator shaft, leaviiig a line from t tie
door to the secretary's ollice. The carri
age came toa stop and hn unprecedented
scene occurred.
Hat in hand, Genera! Lee paseed into
the corrider and someone said, "Now,
boys," and three roiif ii cheers went
echoing down the li halls. Then
there was another outburst, and people
poured fourth from every room. The
cheering caused in t-n - excitement,
and it was some uioineiiH lefore quiet
could be restored, (ieneral Lee bowed
to the crowd and as he reached the door
to Secretary Sherman's ollice turned
and bowed aga.n. Then the door closed
on him and tbe throng diSred.
After a few minute Uie consul-general
emerged, accompanied by Secretary
Sherman and Assistant Secretary Day.
The tbree entered a carriage and w( re
quickley driven to the White home,
General L e getting another ovation on

AttheWbite house the patty was
shown at once to the library, where the
chief executive accorded a hearty recep

persons present at the meeting were the
president, Secretary Sherman, Assistant
Secretary Day and General Jee. Secre

for about half an hour and then returned

time to come; such eloquent and impas
lioued oratory, and such keen and
brilliant repartee have not been known
in the senate since the exciting days
when the country was canvulsed by the
greatest war of modern times.
Notwithstanding the throng in the
