WASHINGTON. March 5 The proposed
transfer of Dry Tortugan , which If now
regarded as the mos't Important quarantine
station of our southern coast , < r > the War de
partment would necessitate the Immediate
selection ot another location for a station off
the count ot Florida. The quarantine season
against ports Infected with yellow fever and
other Infectious diseases begins. " April 1 , BO
that If the War department decides to re-
enino control over Dry Tortugas and Fort
Jefferson , which Is located there , no tlmo
Bhould bo lost by the Marine' hospital ctll-
clals In fitting out another station. Already
co mo correspondence * has been had with
officials of the service on the Florida couat
and several of the Florida Keys have been
uggcaicd as suitable places to which the
station may bo removed. Among those uro
the Fleming Key , which Surgeon Murry ,
considered superior to Dry Tortugaa aa a
the Fleming Key , which Surgeon Murray
Key , where the atato of Florida maintains
a station , and llahla Honda , which U cast ot
Key West. Owing to the fact that Dry
TortUKus U directly In the track ot | I
veseols bound to the United States , the West
Indies anil Central America and the perfect
character of the quarantine station U will
bo given up with great regret by the
( Marino hospital service * . It the War depart
ment Insists upon taking possession.
The annual reports show that In 1S95 fifty-
one vessels were disinfected at the station
and In 1890 ilxty-ono vessels. The figures
for the last year , when the number vvai
much greater , are not yet available. Yellow
( aver patient * are not mated at Tortugas
station , but at Ulrcl Key , six miles away.
Those who were Injured tn the Maine ex
plosion , who were In the hospital at Havana ,
where yellow fever Mwds exists , were de
tained at thtt , station before being taken to
Key West. The same advantaces possessed
by Dry Tortugas as a point for a quarantine
tatlon are claimed for It and also as a strate
gic point tor a base for a fleet operating
gainst Cuba. U was used during the civil
war as a bate ot operations against the con
federate states ,
A report mndo by Surgeon Murray two
yeara ago contains some valuable Information
regarding the locatlcii. the harbor and the
condition of old Fort Jefferson. The group

MADRID , March 5 The government has
consulted the Chambers of Commerce
throughout the country respecting the pro-
poeed comnifcrctal treaty with the United
States. The 1111 boa chamber replies that
considering the present condition of mercan
tile relations It < an see no necessity for a
treaty. If the negotiations , however , are
successful It la of the opinion that two trea
ties will bo requisite , one between America
and the Peninsula and ono between America
and the Antilles. The former treaty , In the
opinion of the llllboa chamber , ought to be
based on reciprocity granting the United
States a second column In the peninsular
tariff , with mutual concessions If possible. It
America concedes that Spanish merchandise
would bo favored by the tariff Spain should
allow America A second column with all the
rebates granted by treaties to Holland ,
Switzerland , Norway and Sweden. The
treaty between America and the Antilles ) , In
the judgment ot the Ullboj. chamber , should
bo limited to the concessions obtained from
the Cuban tariff August 8 , 1SS7 , and should
maintain protection at 32 per maximum and
22 cents minimum for American producti.
It Is believed other chambers take the same
rort-riiKl of the Hoard of In
quiry lli'iiart.

WASHINGTON,1 C. The developments -
ments at the State , War and Navy depart
ments In connection with the Spanish situa
tion have divided themselves Into two dis
tinct brcneties , one relating to the Maine
court of Inquiry and the other to the natural
and necessary steps to place the naval and
military arms of the service on an efficient
basis. Concerning the court and Its work
the Information reaching the authorities
hereIs of a most fragmentary character ,
and the highest naval officials reiterate that
nothing Is at hand to Indicate even the
tendencies ot the members of the court from
the evidence they have thus far received.
Admiral Slcard'a telegram last night Rivet
the only clew as to the plans of the court
and this tn effect Is that It will be some
tlmo before the testimony or divers and
other witnesses can be taken and an Idea
formed as to the date of submitting the re
port. It Is felt at the Navy department
that this will leave the question , so fac ue
the court Is concerned , In a state of doubt
for some dajs longer , probably a week ot
ten days , for , aside from the conclusion ol
the hearings , there Is the formulation of the
Important "findings " , the framing ot tha
court's opinion , and then the formalities ol
Us transmission to Admiral Slcard , and
thence to Washington. "While these last
stages will bo very brief when the actual
findings and opinions have been matured , jet
they cannot be entirely eliminated , and
there appears to bo no disposition to be
precipitous In a matter Involving such grave
The other general branch of the subject ,
the activity In the various naval and mili
tary bureaus , continues without reference tc
the work ot the court ot Inquiry. This ao
tlvlty up to the present time has not taken
the form of any concerted or elaborate plan
of emergency preparations , but has been
manifest mainly through comparative ! )
minor acts , which , taken altogether , halt
shown that the licncM of departments were
not Inactive In preparing their branches ol
the scrvlco for any requirements which It
was possible might bo made on them.
A member of the cabinet stated today thai
there should bo 10 misunderstanding or mis
construction of thcso stcpj. For Instance ,
all of the manifold movements , particular ! }
In the west , of war material , are declared
n the most positive manner simply to bo lr
execution of plans long ago developed foi
'orttflcatlons and the defense ot the coarst ,
Thus at Seattle the War department reccutlj
purchased a tract of G40 acres on Magnolia
Muff , a point regarded by the board as Indispensable -
dispensable toitno proper defense of Pugel
oucid. This blull Is being put lute
condition for the reception ol
he heavy guns anil the othei
weapons The work , It Is said , should have
been done long ago. However , while It IE
tated that these steps are In accordance wltli
last plans , there Is no concealment of the
'act that the administration Is impressed
with a sense of duty In putting the two vvai
branches In the highest state of efficiency tc
neet any emergency. There is no dlsposl-
Ion to anticipate an emergency or to sa >
hat any situation will call Into use the rep
resentation now on foot. On the contrary ,
the highest authorities of the naval and
military branches say they do not cxpecl
an emergency , but are performing the duty
allotted to them of being ready for any re
sult that may ; , com * no matter how unex
pected It may hoi- Those high officials dc
lot wish to minimize their preparations 01
to assert , they the } are merely routine ,
neither do they wish these wise and natural
> recautlons to bo construed far beyond theli
egltlmatc Intent and made the basis foi
alarming reports of war measures.
In referring to this subject , a member ol
the cabinet said ho felt that patriotic In
stincts should Inspire a just measuring ot the
activity now evident at no more or no less
than It really meant.
The Navy department ls somewhat embar
rassed by the lack of reamen necessary tc
111 the complement of ships already or aboul
to go Into commission and In view of thi
shortage the officials in charge of the ro-
crultlng stations at League Island , Norfolt
and New York have been Instructed to en
list such seamen as may bo available and no
confide themselves to persons wuo havi
heretofore been In the navy.
According to an official of the constructloi
bureau of the navy It will be some time be
fore the Charleston , Yorktown and Phila
delphia , now at the. Mare Island yard , an
again ready for sea service unless extraord
inary measures are taken to liurry the worl
on them. The Yorktown and Philadelphia
It Is suggested , mignt be prepared again foi
sea service In a very short tlmo It they an
not put out of commission , but If the latte
step la resorted , It will require from el :
to nine months to put them In shape.
The War department Is having semi
difficulty In obtaining sufficient ground a
Point Wilson , Washington , on which It Ii
proposed to orcct fortifications. This is be
cause ot the fac-t that owners of much o
the land are scattered over the country am
trouble has been experienced In eccurlni
their addresses. The matter Is now In tin
hands of the Department of Justice vvhlcl
Is doing everything possible to settle thi
question. The nature and extent ot thi
works to bo erected will depend on thi
money available.
"Wo are pressing work on fortifications , '
said an official of the War department today
'juat ' as wo have 'been ' since the permanen
system ot coast defense was Inaugurated b ;
congress about two } eara ago. We aim ti
spend all the money congress appropriate
yearly , so that that body will continue ti
authorize expenditures far this necessary ad
junct of national defense. Naturally th >
public U now taking great Interest in al
that la going on , and probably observes will
closer scrutiny everything being done. This
coupled with the fact that no one execp
members of congress are allowed to ente
the fortifications and they only with th
consent of the secretary of war , apparent ! ;
makes the matter all the more mysterious
No , I would not be at liberty to tell of an ;
steps that are being taken oa a result o
the pending excitement , even it J knew o
" a-
such. -
A visit to the , Navy department , one o
those made at not Infrequent Intervals I
the course of duty by Lieutenant J. D. a
Kcllcy , U. S. N. , ' caused the Immediate clr
culatlon of a repbrt that the governmcn
is embarking on the Urge undertaking I :
the Inspection of all'vessels ' of our merchan
marine that might bo available for nava
service In case , of tilted. For more than el
months Lieutenant1 Kelly has 'been ' charge
with the duty of inspecting vessels ot th
merchant marhie W ascertain If they com
piled with the' fernfe of the so-called sub
sidy act and oicjtius ; } fitted for naval serv
Ice. The termsof th.e act , which was passe
several years ago , Appear to be designed t

der the American ! < flag , built In Amerlut
ship yards , tbati hull bo suitable for th
rapid and sato carriage of the United State
malls , and second , suitable for transforma
tlon tn case ot need Into auxiliary cruiser
for the navy. Ever since the passage c
that act , the Navy department has bad ofll
cers at work Inspecting merchant vesacli
either In their preliminary stages .of cor
structlon , or after completion , when thel
owneis sought to take advantage c
the act and claim subsidies fo
their ships. Many vewels have been ao lr
spected and the naval officers have repottu
to the pcetrcester geuural this fltncsa c
unfltneus for naval service. Aa alreati

WASHINGTON , March 5 There Is prom
o of a new and unwelccnio development o
the Maine affair that In the end may leu
up to an Issue between the government o
flio United States and the state of Florid ;
if the officials of the state endorse tdo stain
taken by the local officials at Key West
The latter have notified Admiral Slcard tha
on the first of next month they propose t
enforce the state quarantine law against al
craft arriving from Cuba , as a measmo o
ireventlon against the Introduction of ydlov
[ over. The notice Indicates that the las
will be applied to the n-ival vessels , aud n
view of the serious Interruptions such Inter
lercnco with the free movement of Ills ttilp
would cause , Admiral Slcard has presentei
.he facts to the Navy department and await
Instructions. The department officials can
not tolerate with equanimity the stopragi
ot such ctaft as the Mangrove atul Fern 01
theli crrunda ot mercy , nor delays that ma ;
result In tlio prosecution of the work of th
wieckcra engaged on the Maine's hull an
in the work 01 the court of Inquiry. Td
( resident ( ilmself probably will communl
: ate with the governor of Tin Ida with ;
view to securing an abatement of the law , c > i
far a It in proposed to apply It to nava
vessels , this being the speediest manner o
lealing with the case , although it may bi
itatcd that th national government move
las lecognlzed the right of any local author !
ties to stop its vcsse's in case their move
ment were deemed necessary. The wa
ahips have voluntarily submitted to quaran
tlno vfaen returning from any port BUS
pccted of infection , but this U nsfierted to b' '
: nercly a concession and not the rccognltlci
of any lawful right on the part ot the stat
authoiltles. In view of the fact ( Kit th-
offlceis on our war ships , with the nld o
capable surgeon's ' on each ship , make it thel
prldo to keep their craft In the most health
tul condition , naval officers feel that the ;
may be eafcly left to run their ships between
tweon Havana and Key West without tcstrlc
tlcti. As on evidence of the care exercise :

Secretary Wllkoit to Look Up the
'Matter ' In ) Ni'lmiNkii.
WASHINGTON , March E ( Special Tele
gram ) Marshal Thummol , accompanied by
Assistant Secretary Melklejohn called today
on Secretary Wilson with a view to learning
the cause of the dlsciso now decimating
herds of cattle through counties about Grand
IslanJ. 'Mr. ' T hummel stated that one stock
man In Hull county had lost fifty lieaJ of
cattle by the disease known locally as hoof
rot. One of the strange features of the case
ho cited was that the disease confined Itself
to cattle brought Into the state from north
western ranges for feeding purposes , native
cattle being cntltcly fred from the affliction.
Secretary Wilson was of the opinion that
the disease was due to ergot In hay and the
only relief that could be had was In feeding
other foods. Later , Dr. Salmon of the 'Bureau '
of Animal Industry corroborated the opin
ion of Secretary Wilson and said that ergot
was more prolific some years than others
and especially on the 'bqttoni ' lands and hay
cut from these lands was absolutely value
less for feeding purposes. Mr. Thummel
asked that a special agent ot the depart
ment be sent to Investigate the matter and
this will probably bo done In the near
The Indian bill will be reported to the
house on Monday. That body will bo asked
to non-concur In the senate amendments. It
la In this bill Nebraska Is especially Inter
ested , In carrying aa It does $45,000 for the
Indian congress at Omaha. A vote will be
taken on the free homes amendment , In
which Boyd county settlers are vitally con
cerned , being the only county In the Htato
which Is affected as the amendment sta-ada
at present. A poll of the Nebraska delega
tion made today shows that If the vote Is
taken upon the direct proposition to concur
or non-concur the entire delegation will be
In favor of the free home * amendment.
Chairman Lacey of the public lands commit
tee an ! also a member of the Indian affairs
committee , said he proposed to offer an
amendment to the motion 10 non-concur ,
which would bring the whole subject before
the house. The amendment will be In the
Interest of agricultural colleges which are
fighting the amendment tooth and nail upon
the proposition that It the land In question
Is put upon the same footing aa all govern
ment land It will seriously handicap their
appropriations. The Indian congress bill ,
however , will be safe , no matte ? whetnei

WASHINGTON , Mirch 6 The senate )
committee oil foreign relations held an hour'j
sitting today In an effort to decide upon
what course to pursue with reference to the
Hawaiian annexation treaty , when the
meeting adjourned the members refused ab
solute ! to glvo out any Information to the
press , saying that all present had plcclgefl
thon-fii.'hes to absolute seciccy. It waa
learned from other senators , however , tliat
the committee had under consideration the
advisability of taking up the question ot
annexation In the way of legislation rather
than by the means of ratifying the treat" ,
but that they had decided not to abandon
the treaty , at least Immediately , but to prosit
Its consideration upon the senate at the first
opportunity. They declined to say , even to
ncnators , what might be their course later ,
confining themselves io ' ' 13 declaration that
they would seek to have the senate go Into
executive session again for the considera
tion of the treaty as soon an the appro
priation bills could bo gotten out ot the way.
The present Intention of the committee Is
to hold the treaty In executive session until
a test vote can bo secured and It Is still un
derstood that the Bacon amendment will ba
used for this purpose. If the leault of this
vote indicates that a vote on the treaty Itself
would result In Its defeat , the friends of an
nexation would then resort to the expedient
of a Joint resolution and will then < wh the
senate to take up the question In this shape
In open sernlon , with a 'view of securing the
consent of the house. Some difference of
opinion developed In the committee as to
the wisdom of resuming the executive ses-
slono at all , but it Is urged that many sen
ators would not consent to the mothoj ot
procedure until there IH a vote on the treaty
Itself and this Is said to have prevailed.
