Squlers were both appointed to the diplo

Snulers was born In Cunada.
For a long time past the relations between
Mr. Squiers and the Cuban government
have not been thoroughly satisfactory to
the State department, which regards It as
essential to the conduct of business be
tween the two governments that their re
spective ministers shall lie thoroughly ac
ceptable at their posts. It Is said that In
Intern-lews In the Havana Telegraph and a
leading New York newspaper, the minister
alTorded much encouragement to the Amer
ican colonists on the Isle of Tines and
Americans at home who had property In
terests there In the Isle. The administra

ple to submit themselves to the Cuban gov
ernment, as shown In Secretary Root's let

He desired to

question had changed, as has been Inti
mated In some eastern newspapers.
"My Judgment Is," said Mr. Hlnshaw,
"that the president In his message to con
gress will "mphaelze the stand prevkiusly
taken by him and will recommend to con
gress thst the Interstate Commerce com
mission be given rower to fix a maximum

that power to Issue a wrft of mandamus
to put the rate Into effect shall be given

guarded In the above statement, he be

position, which Instead of showing slgna
of weakening is a decided advance over
his message of two years ago.
Headquarters gtny In Omaha.
Senator Millard, In response to telegrams
and letters received this morning asking
If It was the Intention of the Postolfle
department to move the Omaha division
of the rural free delivery service to Kan
sas City, as predicted by newspapers In
the latter city, had a conference today
with Assistant Postmaster General Hitch
cock and Degraw. As aresult of his talk
with these officials the senator said the
department at no time had contemplated
tho remeval of the Omaha division. The
rearrangement of the duties of several as
sistants to the postmaster general brought
about a change In the offlco to which rural
fre? delivery agents and superintendents
should report. That was the only change
contemplated by the department.

The second night of actual winter found
the cold Intense, plunging as Jt did sud
denly Into tero temperatures. One evi
dence of the severity of the night was
the heavy flow of slush in the river. It
swept under the Douglas street bridge like
floating masses of snow. The stars also
had the steel blue glitter of the winter
night. The atmosphere was' clear as crys
tal and everything had a sharp, metallic
ring. The street cars, as they swept
around the curves, gave a shriller sound
from the frosty wheels.
Not many people were seen on the streets
st of them were In a hurry. They
iclr ears as they tramped along.
I Heavy ulsters and ear muffs were fre
quent. Once In a while a boy on the
streets, thinly clad, ran swiftly to keep up
At the police station another evidence of
the stress of weather was the way the
poor and vagrant class huddled In for
warmth. No less than fifteen straggled in
during the evening, begging for a place
out of the cold. A cafe of destitution
was reported from the bottoms and nn
officer was sent out to Investigate. The
name of the family was given as Nor

excess of liquor and to the piercing wind.
When the officers reached him his hands
were badly frost-bitten, and It was with
difficulty he was roused from the lethargy.
In another hour he would have been be
yond help. He was tnken to the police sta
tion, where his frosen lingers were thawed
out by placing them In cold water. He
was placed In a cell for the night, suffering
great pain In his hands.
