Cafes Become American Bars With
Annexes for Gambling !
GAMES OFALL KINDS RUNNING
One of the Leading Hankers the Proprie
tor of a Game Pntronlzod by Wealthy
Jfew York Sports "Arranged" Matters
% Vltb the American Authorities.
HAVANA , Dec. in. The effect of the
departure of so many officers and army
camp followers on the cafes of Ha
vana was the subject of interesting
speculation a few weeks ago. It was
thought most of them would be com
pelled to close for lack of patronage.
The proprietors have met the new
conditions by leasing their places
to "enterprising" Americans , who are
converting the cafes into barrooms
with all the attractions that go with
these institutions in the states. The
bar rooms have annexes in which
gambling of all kinds can be indulged
in after the most approved American
methods. The annexes are , in fact ,
the main concerns. One of the leading
bankers is understood to be the pro
prietor of the game patronized by
wealthy New Yorkers who go to Long
Branch or Saratoga in summer.
The Spanish proprietors were at
first doubtful about putting their
places in the hands of the Americans.
They thought trouble might arise
with the military authorities after the
flag was floating from Morro castle.
They were assured that all this had
been "arranged. " The first business
of the American military commander
of Havana will be to show that it has
not been "arranged. "
THINKS US UNFRIENDLY ,
Expansion and the American-English
Good Feeling ; IMsinrb the Czar.
PAEIS , Dec. iy. A Russian cabinet
minister here says that the policy of
expansion of the United States is wor
rying1 the czar. "It is impossible , " ho
said , "that the United States should
be anything1 except the rival of Russia
in Asia , not only because all the West
ern powers arc competing' with one
another for superiority , of a political
as well as an economic nature , but be
cause it is inevitable that the United
States should do otherwise than to fall
into line with Great Britain , whose
views and aspirations have so much in
common with those of America , as far
as the Orient is concerned.
"The sympathy which has been cre
ated between England and the United
States during1 the year now coming-
a close has exercised a most chilling
influence upon the time-honored
friendship between Russia and the
great republic in the new world. The
Russian government can inaka no at
tempt to conceal that it strongly de
plores and disapproves of the change
in the ownership of the Philippine
islands , and that it considei-s this ac
tion on the part of the "Washington ad
ministration as not only unjust toward
Spain , as contrary to the declarations
of President McKinley and of the
state department- the beginning of
the war , but also as utterly lacking in
regard and consideration for the
friendship that has hitherto united the
American republic with Russia. In
fact , the Russian government looks
upon the acquisition of the Philippines
by the United States as not only un
wise in the extreme , but as an un
friendly act toward my coantry. "
LEE AT HIS OLD TABLE ,
Havana Sees the Ex-Consul In His Ac
customed Place at the Inglctcrra.
HAVANA , Dec. 39. General Lee came
to town from camp and for the first
time since the war had breakfast at
his old hotel , the Ingleterra. He went
to his old table and took his accus
tomed seat near a window. Residents
of Havana , recogniziug him , cheered
lustily as his familiar figure was
seen in the street. More people are
going1 out of Havana than will come
in for many months. The rottenness
of the Spanish military methods dur
ing the insurrection can be judged by
the great number of oincers Avho were
always in Havana on staff duty. The
disproportion to those who in any cir
cumstances were seeing active service
in the field was marked. They were
literally the only class of the popula
tion which was too numerous to be
counted. The void is one which will
not be filled. The American garrison
will be kept out of Havana. American
officers will not be quartered in the
city and spread over it like a cloud of

THE PRESIDENT IN ALABAMA ,
Enthusiastically Welcomed In the Con
federacy's First Capital.
MONTGOMERY , Ala. , Dec. 19. Tbe
President and his party were given a
magnificent welcome in the Confed
eracy's first capital yesterday. The
President's train was escorted from
Atlanta to Tuskegee , where he visited
Booker Washington's colored school ,
and hence here by the state assembly ,
Governor Johnston , Chief Justice Mc-
Clellan and a party of ladies. The as
sembly's train came in ahead of the
President's. At the Union station the
Presidential party was met by the gov
ernor , committees from the assembly ,
the mayor and city council , and the
Commercial and Industrial association.
Mayor Clisby received the President
with a well worded speech at the sta
tion. The whole party was then taken
in carriages through the leading busi
ness and residence streets to the old
The entire route was ablaze with na
tional colors , while tremendous
crowds lined the streets as far as the
eye could reach. No such gathering
has been seen here since Mr. Cleve
land's visit during his first term. Cap
itol hill was one mass of humanity
when the lines of carriages , escorted
by the local military companies ,
reached it at 3 o'clock. When Gov
ernor Johnston escorted President Mc
Kinley into the hall , there was a tre
Governor Johnston made a brief
speech , in which he took occasion to
say that Alabama had nothing to take
back for what she did in 1SG1 , but that
she was back in the Union to stay , and
that she welcomed the President of
the reunited country to the historic
spot around the assemblage.
He then introduced President Mc
Kinley , who spoke as follows :
"To be welcomed here in the city of
Montgomery , the first capital of the
Confederate states warmly and en
thusiastically welcomed as the pres
ident of a common country has filled
and thrilled me with emotion. Once
the capital of the Confederacy ; now
the capital of a great and glorious
state , one of the indestructible states
of an indestructible Union.

applause ) and ministered to the sick

people that we ought not to have a

Three Candidates Are Mentioned for
Governorship of Island.
HONOI/ULU , Dec. 9. Three candi
dates are being- persistently mentioned
for the governorship of the islands.
They are S , M. Damon , Harold M. Se-
wall and President Dole. Each candi
date has a host of supporters. A peti
tion is being circulated among the na
tives praying President McKinley not
to appoint to the position of governor
any person connected with the recent
revolution. Another petition of start
ling nature is about to be circulated
asking France to interfere with the
present government and to restore the
Catholic ? In the Colonies.
ROMK , Dec. 19. In response to the
Vatican's inquiry on the subject.
President McKinley has sent the as
surance that the Catholics in Cuba and
the Philippines will enjoy the same
ample liberty as the Catholics in
America. The Washington govern
ment has also promised the pope that
measures will be taken to prevent pro
visional governments despoiling con
vents or seizing ecclesiastical prop
erty. The pope has sent his warmest

Health Being Broken ,
THE CLIMATE IS MALIGNED ,
The Germans Acted Qaoorly nt First and
Did Not Call on the American Army
Commander Until After Manila "Was
Taken , and Then Did Jfot Act Friendly
NEW YORK , Dec. 19. Major General
Wesley Merritt , the late commander
of the United States military forces in
the Philippine islands , who was called
to Paris to consult with the American
peace commissioners , reached here to
day on the steamer Lucania from
Queenstown. The general will resume
command of the military department
of the East , the position he held when
he was ordered to the Far East. From
the steamship pier the Merritt party
went in carriages to the Waldorf-
"It is some time since I left the
Philippine islands. " said General Mer
ritt , "and all that I can say about the
situation there when I left is con
tained in official reports which I made
to the government and peace com
mission. I can say , however , that
there is no foundation for the report
that Admiral Dewey's health has
broken down as a result of his
wonderful work in Manila harbor
on May 1 , last. He was in fine
physical condition when I left him
and he was then over the strain of the
naval fight. There is another thing
that I would like the people to know.
It is that the climate of the Philip
pines is not by any means as it is said
to be. I met a number of Europeans
there who had been in the country for
fourteen years or more and they
seemed to thrive and had no serious
complaints about the climate. The
mortality among our troops sent to
preserve order there is not so great as
some would have the people believe.
"The Germans acted a little queer
when I got there first. They were kind
of meddlesome in matters which I
think they should have let alone. The
German officers there made me no of
ficial calls until Manila had fallen ,
and then their visit was not what
might be termed friendly . There was
no serious clash , and I am glad of it.
The volunteers behaved nobly during
the fights we had. They arc good sol
"As to General Miles' bill to increase
the army to 100,000 , at present I can
not discuss the proposed measure for
the reason that I have not yet seen a
copy of it. I think it will take about
30,000 soldiers to hold the islands in
case this country desires to keep them ,
and I see no reason why it should not.
"I have no comment to make on the
so-called expansion which is being dis
cussed pro and con these days. There
are many Spaniards upon the islands
that want to remain there. With 15-
000 United States soldiers and the re
maining 15,000 evenly divided between
the Filipinos and the Spanish , I feel
sure that the islands could be gov
erned properly and with credit to this
"I did not meet Aguinaldo , but I am
satisfied he is a very shrewd man. I
did not recognize the insurgents , fear
ing complications. Admiral Dewey ,
after my arrival , pursued the same
course. What was said or done be
fore my arrival I cannot state. I did
not recognize Aguinaldo , nor his
troops , nor use them in any way. I
had been there ten days before Aguin

have it. We were moved by fear
that they might loot and plun

with American officers. Aguinaldo's
subordinate leaders frequently said
that they intended to cut the throats
of all Spaniards in Manila.
"Aguinaldo himself wrote a com
plaining letter , saying that the insur
gents had been denied 'their share of

meant. I took no notice of this letter
nor did I think that the complaints of

Tariff Schedule for Cuba.
WASHINGTON , Dec. 19. President
McKinley. before leaving for the south
last Tuesday , signed his executive
order establishing a customs tariff for
the island of Cuba , to go into effect

upon the report and recommendations
made by Robert P. Porter , special
commissioner of the United States ,
who was sent to Cuba some months ago
for the special purpose of making an
investigation of the subjects and reve
nues of _ the island. The average rate
is not o'vcr 25 per cent on all articles
imported into Cuba and 02 per cent
below the rate imposed by Spain on all
imports from the United States.

arrested at Bilbao , in order to extract
information from them regarding the
armament designs of the Carlists. It
is apprehended that these tortures
