Spain holding Havana ami tke principal 9et-ports, while the insurgents roam at will over two thirds of the Is land. He directs the attention of Con gre? to the Cuban question, saying the fo? shuns general engagements, and the conflict maybe indefinitely prolonged entailing immense destruction upon property, and that the United Stages in terests in tbe situation ce second' only to Spam's. He thinks the proposition of many in tbe United States, namely, to buy the Island, worthy of consideration. The character of the United States forbids an intervention which may involve a war with Spain, yet the United States must recognize the grievances' of the Cubans. He thinks that a guarantee of autonomy by Spain, it1 a- satisfactory measure of home rule is tendered the Cubans would be accepted by the latter, and the United States would find a suit able way to have Spain's guarantee for keeping same. Somthing should be done to protect our interests nd Spain must act inthe matter. The Treasury reports show a deficit of $5,203,243. The diminution in the pension expen ditures so confidently foretold stjll fail to materialize. Tariff reform has opened the way to a freer and greater exchange of commo dities between the United States and other countries, and has thus furnished a wider market for our produots and manufactures. During its tirst rear im ports have increased six and one half millions, exports increased seventy millions. W. VV . T, Oeid. Special 1 RaLEIOH, N. C, December 7. W. W.

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.

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 hotels shelter 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 we crle- 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 inted 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 there are many others w ho have a com fortable surplus left to begin work on Immigration companies, backed by the Southern railroad-, have been doing mi--siouarv work in thi Section for a year, and claim to now have their colonization matter- fairly started.

Jantaky cotton opened in New York at 7.30 and lias had a declining tendency all day, finally closing at 7.14 the low est point touched for several months and a net loss of 20 points since yester day.
