Joint Resolution Inviting Cub-
' ' attsvto Accc'pt Annexation.
/'IS ' INTRODUCED DY NEWLAND8 ,
.Measure Recommends Twenty-Five
'I ' Per Cent Reduction of Sugar Tariff
j 'In Conoldoratlon of Preferential
; Rates to United States.
Washington , Fob. C. Representative
Rowlands of Nevada , who was the
iduthor of the resolution annexing Ha
waii , yesterday Introduced a joint reso-
llutlon , Inviting the Republic of Cuba
to become a part of the United States ,
'first as a territory and then as a state
of the Union , to be called the state of
V Cuba , also authorizing a 25 per conl
reduction of duty on the present crop
of Cuban -sugar , in consideration of
Cuba's granting preferential rates to
the United States.
, Mr. Newlands in explanation i > f his
resolution sold : "All those who have
Appeared to voice Cuba's needs and
requirements have indicated that an
Invitation to Cuba of annexation would
.bo accepted. Annexation by force
' .would > not > bo justified. It must bo ac-
coniplished , if at all , by thoi free act
of the Cuban-people. At present there
is no machinery , ln Cuba.by which the
popular "will can be'tested , but the
( Cuban constitution has been adopted.
tTho Cuban congress will meet la Fob-
Jruary , a Cuban government will be or
ganized and the United States will
then leave the government and control
of the island to Its people. Cuba then
bo in a position to express her
and it Is only necessary to tide
over the present emergency by a tem
porary measure , such as I have intro
duced , reducing the duty on Cuban
' feugar one-fourth for one year and In
viting Cuba to become a part of the
jUnlted States under a territorial form
of government , under the constitution ,
her people to be citizens , not subjects ,
with the ultimate result of statehood. "

QoVornor TafUsald that originally
the civil and military control of tUo
Islands had boon In the hundn ot the
military and that tmturally there had
been some difference of opinion be
tween the military authorities and the
commission ns to the method of pro

fate of the other dead are that they

no trace of thorn haii been found.
. Cause of Explosion Is Unknown.
The cause of the explosion IB un
known , and has not yet buun deter
mined whether It WIIH Bower gas or Il
luminating HUB. Mains filled with the
latter were Instantly ablu/o after the
explosion and < n succession of explo
sions followed , the HaniPH shooting up
through the nmnholcH In tlio street.
It would bo difficult to ascertain wheth
er the Illuminating gaa exploded or
whether the nmlnn were broken by the
explosion of aower gas. Many people
living in the vicinity believe that the
first explosion was In a main at Twen
ty-second Btreot and Archer aveniio.
Then the manhole , half a block Houtli
on Archer avenue , was thrown Into the
air by a loud explosion. Flamen
leaped high from the hole. The fire
spread below the street and other
manholes wore blown Into the air. The
flnmuH from the first ga iniilti wliot
high Into the air and reached , with
the aid of the wind , the Trostel butch
er shop. The building WIIH a three-
story frame structure and It had been
weakened and nearly wiecked by the
shock. It Is supposed that the occu
pants of tlio building'were knocked
unconscious or were too panic stricken
to rush from the place. The ( lames
caught the weather worn limbers. The
dry and rotting wood was food for the
fire and In an Instant the flames envel
oped the structure. With a roar the
building collapsed and Uio occupants ,
with ono exception , were carried with
It to the basement. The adjoining
building , a two-story structure , flared
up , the next building was wrapped In
flame and then another structure
caught flro. It Heemed that the whole
block would bo wiped out before the
flromen could bring the blaze under
control. A fire wall of a brick build
ing at Archer avenue and Twenty-sec
end street hold the flro In that direc
tion. On the west of the burning
buildings were two small one-story
cottages. They were u few feet from
the burning buildings and that gave
the firemen an opportunity of heading
off the fire. Window glass throughout
the neighborhood was broken and bottles
tles and glassware In the dwellings
and stores were thrown to the floor
and broken. Many persons In build
ings near the explosions were knocked
down. Scores of men and women ,
many of them carrying children ,
rushed to the streets. They were
greeted by the glare of the flro from
the manholes. Fearing further explo
sions , the people rushed down the
streets , many of the women screaming
with fCar. On several street cars near
the place the windows were smashed
and the passengers severely shaken up.
Seven Firemen Are Killed.
St Louis , Feb. 6. The flro that de
