A ttement from Secretary Oitu v was
presented to Congress, reviewing the Ml
nation in Cuba, and he thnuiriit that the
business interest f of the country would
soon demand some action on the part of
the United States in order to protect her
shipping and commerce interests.

HaMBI'RH. Numerous meetings of the
striking dock laborers were held in this
citv. The largest of these was a mass
meeting at w hich Herr Molkenbuhr. So
cialist member of the Reichstag for
Hamburg, announced that the subscrip
tions to the fund for the support of the
strikers ha 1 s i nc reused " that the iii
tributors of the fund would be enabled
to rnise the weekly grants to unmarried
men bv one mark a week and to jive to
. married men an additional allowance,
according to the number of children in
their fam dies.
The employers have held another
meeting at which their refusal to submit
the diopute between the striking dock-
men and themselves to an arbitration
tribunal was reartirmtnl.
This action of the employers is due to
the fart that a guarantee amounting to
f-25O,0" has been signed for the protec-
tion and aid of the smaller employers.
BEVIES Or BRIDAL COUPLES.
How They and the Proplp Rnjoy Life
Hi Old Point Comfort.
Old Point Cumfort. Dec, Tth.
Special Coi respomleuce of the .Joi iinal.
This is the time of year when Old
Point Comfort puts on its most hospita
ble air. and its palatial
rest and pleasure seeker
from all parts
of the country. Indeed, it is doubtful
if any other resort in America draws its
patrons from such an extensive terri -
toiy. They come from East, West,
North and South. And the bridal coup -
le.: It !-ei ms as if this charming retreat
was n'lnde specially for the "newly
wedded pairs who are just starting out
on the journey of life together, and to
whom there is but one world with two
in it. Well, there is truly everything
here to make the honeymoon a honey
moon indeed. As a rule the blissful
couples avoid the gay throng and seek
the many sheltered nooks around t he j
grim ramparts of Fortress Monroe w here
they can squeeze hands and look into
eacli other's eyes. You have to be care
ful when walking about Old Point Com
fort, for the corners are full of them,
anrl you are liable to start them up as a
dog does a covey of partridges.
It's easy to tell 'em. The genial hotel
clerks can "spot"' them every time. The
favorite bridal route is by way of the
Old Bay Line from Baltimore, because
the trip down the Chesapeake is so
quietly delightful and pleasant no noise
or bustle of the railroad. So when the
Alabama or Georgia readies the dock
here in the morning, the porters and
"boys'1 are on tbe lookout for the newly
married. The clerk knows just where
to give them rooms and if vou can I
rind any more luxurious or comfortable
j quarters than at the hotels here you will
i have to look outside this country for
them. They want a good breakfast too,
and quick, for these wedding trips
somehow give the travelers a wonderful
appetite so the waiters say. It's not all
sentiment by a long shot, and some of
the little ladies in their dainty gray
gowns will astonish you with their cap
acity for the fried chicken, waffles,
omelets, quail on toast and other deli
cacies cooked and served so deliciotlsly
at tbe famous hostelries of Old Point.
Speaking of gray, that reminds me that
most of the brides travel in gray. Occas
ionally you see another color but not
often. And the trunks they take ! Some
time tlx're are four or rive just for one
little woman, but she uses their contents;
for if their is a time when a girl wishes to
look attractive, isn't it on her wedding
trip? Of course it is and they know it.
The prettiest ones must all come to Old
Point, for vou seldom see one who isn't
what Chimmie Fadden calls Chauncey
Depew. a peach." It is generally sup-
i posed tu at every couple goes to one oi
j three places on their wedding trip Old
Point, Washington or Niagara Falls, but
the other places cannot come up to Old
Point as a mecca for the newly mated. It
is not an iufrquent occurrence for nearly
a hundred couples to be registered at the
, Chamberlin and the Hygria at one time.
Thev do so hate to leave, too. In fact
many w ho have planned a trip to include
other resorts find it is so truly Old Point
Comfort that they change their minds and
stay right here until the last minute, and
lufore they go away you often hear "little
wifey" say: "Now John or Charlie cr
Henry ; whatever the name may be,. I
want you to promise that you will take
me L.rv a vt,.ir fr,)IU now wiu.a
brate our tirst anniversary."
And John din's it, toc.
Vou see there are the dances and the
delightful music of the hotel orchestras,
tlie drills and the social events at tile
fort, the many places such as the New
port New s shipyard, Hampton Institute'.
Norfolk. Portsmouth and the Navy
1 Yard, the line hunting near by. and the
i mauy pleasant acquaintances oue forms
! among the elite southern people who
I frequent Old Point. All these make the
' variety necessary. Old Point is never
monotonous. Theu the enjoyable trip
up and down the Chesapeake by the
Baltimore Steam Packet Co's. Old Bay
Line route is one of the features long to
be remembered with pleasure. These
steamers have elegantly appoi
bridal stateriHims. and have for a half
century carried nuptial pairs ou their
journey in life together.
MigrHtluK to I lie Month.
Sri'KKioii, Wis. The exodus of families
from this section of the country to what
is termed 'the fruit belt" of Georgia is
hetrinnins to attract considerable atten
tion. It is estimated that already loO
funnies have disposed of their belongings
jn Superior and Duluth and taken tracts
of land in the South, mostly in the vicini
tv of Sibley, (ia., where there is quite a
colony of Northern people.
Many of these people go down without
a dollar in the world after paying the
freight on their hnu-ehold effects, and
