Havana, March 7. A strong effort
is being made for united action by the
Spanish merchants and importers of
the entire island looking to a complete
severance of Commercial relations
with tlio United States. ; icufucgoes

night, formal permission having been
asked, of tlie provisional authorities.
The Cienfuogos chamber of eommcrco
resolved yesterday, as a protest
against the action of the United
States, to cancel till orders outstand
ing for American goods and to boycott
the United States goods of all hinds in
Cotnmerclal organizations in Ha
vana, Mutunzas, Cardenas and other
cities were notilied by cable, of the
action of Cienfucgos merchants and
were asked to co-operate. The Ha
vana chamber of commerce immedi
ately held a meeting and passed a
resolution congratulating the Cion
fnegos chamber of commerce on its
patriotic attitude and promising to lay
its aeliou before several other Ha
vana commercial organizations. A
committee waited on Captain tionoral
Wcyler and uslcd his advice. He
recommended prudence and extreme
caution. The committee assured him
of its regret for any offensive words
against him and against Spain in the
United States Senate and pledged
him its oympathv.
The Havana Produce exchange also
held a meeting to consider the t'ienfu
egos proposition. Many members
urged immediate boycott on American
imports. One member, a colonel of
volunteers, said Cuba could do with
out American lard, and could use
Spanish oil. He had no use for any
thing American now. Others, who
maintained they were equally as good
Spaniards, urged deliberation. After
much patriotic tails the conservative
element prevailed. The meeting con
tented itself with sending a dispatch
to the Cietifugos merchants, applaud

STREET CARS RUN BY AIR.
A t hirago Truffle Conip.ni to Ti-t :i eiv
CmcAflo, March ".The General
Street lhilhvuy company has con
tracted to test on its lines a new com
prised air motor, which the owners
claim will sound the deatli Unell of
trolley and cable systems. Two of the
new motors nre on the way from
J'omt', X. Y., where they arc made,
and where one of the kind
litis been in successful operation
without a breakdown i.i eight
months. The cars to be brought here
for the test are doublc-endors" like
trollev cars. The system of operation
is still partly a secret, but one of the
Jocal stockholders, a scientific army
olliecr at Fort Sheridan, .said yester
day that seamless tubes, filled with
compressed air. wcte stored under the
.seats of tnc ears, connecting by pipes
with the engine underneath the car;
that before reaching the engine the
air passed over a hot water tank, re
ceiving heat by contact; that in the
voidest weather a little vapor escaped
from the engine, this beirg the only
evidence of tho force at work.
Experiments have demonstrated, it
is claimed, that explosiou need not be
feared, and that a single charge of
compressed air Is enough 'o drive a
ear seventeen miles. If trailers bo
used, compressed air tanks niuv be
stored under them, and an indefinite
run thus provided for. Any desired
speed, it is said, can be attained, and
the cost of operation is declared to bo
from "JO to Jo per cent less than by
electrical or cable power.
Tho other advantages claimed by
the promoters are: No poles, over
head wires, cables, pipes or conduits;
no electrolysis of water und gas pipes
by escaping currents: no obstructions
to tho tire department; no tearing up
of streets for underground construc
tion; no fatal accidents from live wires;
no stalling of ears in time of riots by
tampering witii the source of power.

Washington. March 7. The Honso
yestorduy wrangled about four hours
over tho sulanos of Uuited States
marshals and tho other feature of tho
amendment to the legislative appropri
ation bill to abolish tho fee system in
the cnHcsMf United States attorneys
and marshals. Interest in that debate
was completely overshadowed by a
sonsational attack made upon Presi
dent Cleveland by Mr Hartman. re
publican, of Montana, who felt him
self personalty aggrieved by Mr.
Cleveland's utterances at the Presby
terian Homo mission meeting in New
York an Tuesday, and who seized the
opportunity ullowed by ttie latitude of
debate on appropriation bill to repel
tho idea that the Western States were
the homo of evil influences. Mr. Hart
man sent to the clerk's desk and had
read the following extract from Mr.
"The toleration of evils and indif
ference to Christianizing and elevat
ing agencies" in the new states of the
West, which, "if unchecked, develops
into badly regulated municipalities,

"Whatever may be my individual
opinion of the president." said Mr.
Hartman, "matters not. It would not
.be proper for mo to state it here. For
the high ofllce of president of the
United Stales I have a supreme re

that ofllce arc limited to those enu
merated in our constitution. Under
the constitution and laws I deny the
right of the chief executive to will

he has been called to preside.

Mint found in the state of New York,
where the President seems to think
all virtue resides. The per capita of
wealth of the citizens of our state ex
ceeds that of nnv state in the Union,

arc equal to those of any section of
tho Union, and if some of "the patriot
ism of the people ot the West had been
possessed by the President anil his
friends, the" citizens of this republic
would not have been called upon to
witness tho national humiliation of
hauling (town the American llag tit
Honolulu; of begging the bankers of
Wall street and Great ltrlluin to .save
us from financial ruin, and under the
behests of tho nowers behind the
throne, of denying to tho oppressed
citizens of Cuba the recognition winch
the dictates of humanity and conunuii
right demand. (Applause). It is true
we do not get our patriotism from
Wall street, where the President gets
his. (Laughter). It is true none of
our citizens has possessed that partic
ular style of patriotism which would
enable'them to save by thrift and
strict economy live times ns much as
their entire income amounts to. and It
is also true that the patriotism of
these 'corrupt and unsafe territories
and undesirable states' have never vet
been able to rise to that lofty plane
of supreme wisdom and virtue."
"It is also true," continued Mr.
Hartman, resuming, that the patriot
ism of these "corrupt and unsafe ter
ritories and undesirable states' has
never yet been able to rise to that
lofty plane of supreme wisdom and
virtue, which enables tlioe who
claim to occupy it to justify the sale
of thirty-year government bonus ot a
year ago for Hil when that very day
ten-year bonds were selling at 100.
On behalf of the citizens of the states
and territories thus slandered and
maligned by the chief executive I here
and now repel the insult and respect
fully suggest that tho greatest need of
this country for tho work of the mis
sionary, the schoolmaster and the
statesman will be found at the White

A touching story of Hcccher's sympa
thy and power Is related by a contem
porary. One Sunday morning ut the
Brooklyn Tabernacle Mr. Beccher told
about a friend of his who had called his
attention to the peculiar sad case ot a
youn girl who was to he sold that
week, hut who, having fallen Into the
hands of a slave dealer, less obdurate
than some, had obtained permission to
try to collect from charltablo souls her
own purchaso price that she might
gain her liberty. Bccchor's help had
been Implored and ho had brought the
girl tlicro that morning. Ho callod
her up to the platform and said: "This
girl will bo sold to-morrow unlaw we
save her to-day. Her prlco is $1,200,"'
and sat down. Without another word
the deacons sprung up and began lo
make a collection. Women who had no
money with them tore off their orna
ments to place on the plates, and two
men walked up to the platform and told
the preacher that whatever tho collec
tion might bo they would guarantee
the needed sum, and the girl was free.
And then the vast congregation of 3,000
people, Sunday morning though it was.
rose and cheered In gladness of thanks

The merchant laid down his pen; his

him, nnd now took his place by the
bedside, whispering, ever and anon,
"Von must go with me."
A cold chill settled on tho merchant's
heart; specters of ships, notes, houses,

mind. Still his pulse heat slower, his
heart heaved heavily, thick films gath

Humanity, mercy, and religion had
