giving to tho public the nnuutil ad

political phases of tliu A. I. A. Ilu
"Tliu American Protective Assooln
tlon Is to-duy u rocognlzud featuru in
American politics, whoso favor it
openly courted by political leaders
organizers ami posttilunts for pit bill
ollice, who, iv year or two ago, Ignored,
treated with contempt or denounced
Then ho warns tliu ordW against
eleventh hour converts rtuil says
'Tlio A. 1'. I. is u standing iihmiiico
to tin' perpetuity of uvury party, being
composed, us It Is, of thu mi'iiibi'r.s of
every party. So long us it remains
unmoved by threats, unyielding to
tin; pressure, of party machines, it will
be bated but respected by every party
whico dares not iuuoriior.itu thu plat
form of the order in its own
"Thu great majority of our order
have waited patiently during thu past
year for muii sign from ouu or other
of the political parties that it lias re
c'utved u change of heart and Is honest
enough to publicly express It, There
are n few Itcpiibllcuus, such us Linton,
of Michigan; dear, of lowu; Hrudluy,
of Kentucky, who havu bison foarluss
In their indorsement of our princi
ples, ami while it nriy be fortunate
that they tiru Republicans, it Is more
than fortunate tlr.it they urn not
either tliu Republican party or repre
sentatives of that body, anil thu ques
tion should be ashed and answered
.liens mid now that while thu A, I.
A. Isms of these men Is tolerated by
the parly for thu A. I. A. votus which
each of them carries behind him, what
assurance have ue that this tolera
tion will not ceasu the moment tlio
votes liuvu been delivered."
Thu cnly references to church mat
tors In thu address are thu following:
'j well meaning and by no means
unimportant section of the order has
arisen which advocates peace with thu
priest and his subjects and harmony
between them and the members of thu
order. Some would even go so far as
to tiogotlntu with them politically,
than which nothing could bu moru
dangerous to the perpetuity of thu as
sociation. Others go so far as to taho
thu position that a member of thu or
tloi possesses thu right to dutermino
for himself the question of loyalty op
disloyalty of any papist postulant fop
ofllce, and reserves to himself tho
right to persuade others to votu for
said papist. Suuh a contention is not
only absolutely untenable, but hihlv
dangerous. The caudlilutu voluntii
rllv renounces thu right of private
judgment in this ossuntl.il when he
becomes a member of thu order. It is
a, solemn compact which ho can
nuithur modify nor amend. The key
stone of tho A." P. A. is tho tact that
i. papist, no mutter how liberal nomi
nally. Is not a consistent citizen of
the Unitc'd States. L'ntire renuncia
tion of the papacy must precede his
acceptance of our association us a
cuudidatu worthy of Its suffrages."

from the treasury, and thuru Is not,
it is said, thu slightest in
dication of any abatement in thu t.
poll of the yellow uiutal. Thu lust
payments of thu recent popular loan
have beuu made, and thu gold reserve
can, therefore, uxpeet no ncciutlous
other than thoso which will Conui to
it in the ordinary way. While tho
withdrawals of gold aru not enough
to bu a positive menace, they are
causing anxiety to thu treasury of
ficials. If there is anything like a
Meady increase In the amount of
withdrawals it is expected Mr. Cleve
land will make un effort to secure legis
lation to cheek It. Congress evpocts to
adjourn soinu time between Juno 2

Havana, May 1C Tho Marquis da

this statement: "Captain (tcncr.il

If it were not absolutely necessary to
put a stop to lllibusturlng expeditions,
ho would take real pleasure In pardon

perform his duty."
Captain (Jeneial Wcylcr, In extend
ing his proclamation of amnesty, says:
"1 am determined to show as much
generosity toward those rebels who
repenl and surrun lor tholr arms and
reswear their allegiance to the gov
ernment ns I have already displayed
energy and firmness iu dealing with
thosu who have persisted In disloyalty
to tlio crown."
The Havana press re-echoes the
cabled opinions of Madrid journals,
urging thu Spanish government to
abrogate the existing treaty and
protocol with thu I'riitcd States and
La Corresnondeiicla Mllltalre, iu a
leading article, urges an iunnuillutu
declaration of war by Spain against
the Lulled States. Thu writer pro
fusses to believe that when thu first
cannon should bo II rod the Southern
States would again withdraw .and
preserve neutrality, and Mexico would
invalid thu country to recover Its lost
territory in the West, and thus Insnru
tlmqulck dismemberment and lasting
humiliation of the great republic.
Tho lurgu number of desertions
from the Spanish ranks Is alarming
tho authoiltlcs. Tho cntlru garrison
in unmnicu lias lieen relieved by or
der of the governor, who discovered n
conspiracy to go over to the rebels iu
body. The captain and lleutununtM
were arrested while the corporal and
a private were publicly shot two days
ago. A hergeant belonging to the
saint company had previously deserted
to tho rebels. The principal cause of
discontent among thu Spanish troop3
is ill treatment and luck of pay.

Washington, May 1'. Tlio Ilotiso
fortifications bill appropriated about
611.000,000 for coast dofctiscs, about
half In cash and half lu contracts.
Tho most important item In tho llouso
bill was tho section providing for en
gineer work on the gun and mortar
batteries, appropriating Sl,3S.'i,0G0 in
cash nnd authorized contracts to the
extent of 81, TftO.OOO. This work, em
bracing the emplacements for tho
great seacoast guns und mortars, Is
far behind tho manufacture of guns.
The Senate sub-committee, which
has been considering the bill for a
week has decided to give Seoretury
I.amont every assistance to put tho
fortifications In good order lit once
without wuitlnrr for the formalities of
contracts. It theroforo recommends
the appropriation of a lump sum of
3",n00,i)3u for tho engineering work,
allowing tho secretary of war to ex
pend it as rapidly us possible. This
will be the first largo appropriation
for coast defenses since the war and
is alone more than twice as much as
the entire fortification bill for any
previous year, Including guns, em
placements and carriages.
The Sonata committee has doubled
the appropriation for sites for fortifi
cations, also raising the figures from
S-'.'.O.OOD toS..00,000. Thu Sonatu amend
ments do not Increase materially the
total carried by tliu bill, but thuy havo

tion of making money available at

voted to tlio report of tlio executive
committee on tho action of thu advis-1
ory board iu blaukllstlng William Me
Klnley of Ohio as a Hepiibllcan presi
dential candidate. Thu report of the
advisory board was technically an in
dorsement of tlio action of thu execu
tive committee, asserting.in .substauco
that the executive committee was
warranted, in view of tlio evidence
presented to it, iu placing a ban upon
Mr. McKinley.but lu addition itstated
that a further examination of this
testimony by the full board had con
vinced thu member that tho witnesses
were unreliable and that theii state
ments weru incorrect. Therefore the
board concludes. Mr. MeKinlcy should
be placed upon thu same footing, so
far us members of tiie A. P. A. wero
concerned, with tho other candidates
for presidential nominations uud
should not bo discriminated against.
Appended to thu report was a state
ment in writing by Delegato Huddles

was satisfactory. The other members
