SPAIN'S REPLY HERE
f Now Being Translated-
WASHINGTON Aug. 3 10 a. m.
Until long after the midnight the sec-
retaries of the French embassy were at
work last night on Spain's answer to
President McKiuley's peace terms.
The message of course was received
in cipher. It means much work to
translate the note from the code into
Spanish and then into English. In
nmte care is necessary lor the reason
that a change of a single word might
wreck the negotiations.
Before the close of the day M. Cam-
bon will probably place the note in
the hands of the president.
Unofficial reports received at the
White House are to the effect that
Spain has accepted the terms. In that
event the war may practically be
brought to an end this week. There
will be work for the army for many
months to come however in Cuba
Porto Rico and the Philippines but
the impression is strong that the last
battle with Spain has been fought
Ustil the treaty is signed sealed and
delivered with the approval of the
senate however the army and nary
will be on guard
Spanish diplomacy is regarded as an
uncertain quantity and the president
will keep his forces in position to re
sume the conflict without delav.
While Spain is declared to ave ac
cepted the main propositions without
reserve there are rumors that the Ma
drid cabinet is maneuvering to save
something out of the wreck
Sagasta it is said will ask the pri
vuege 01 retaining all war
material in the islands to be evacuated
and he will likely make an effort to es-
cape part of the debts of Cuba and
Porto Rico. It is also stated that be
has asked for details as to the time and
manner in which the Spanish troops
must be withdrawn from the West In
So far as has been learned through
administration sources of information
however Spain has raised no question
that cannot be settled by a peace com
mission representing the two coun

New York Aug. 3. Captain Sigs

of the battleship Texas. Captain Philip

modore next month and by the naval
egulat'ons he must give up his ship.
Captain Sigsbee is also about to lose
is ship the St. Paul which is to be
returned to the American line. He
was promised the command of an ar-
mored cruiser or battleship as scon as
vacancy occurred. The Texas is the

ill have the honor of furnishing a
part of the garrison troops for those is-
lands. Maj. Gen. Merriam reqeived
word from Washington to muster in a
battalion of infantry among-the Hawai-
ians and nominate officers for it.
There are now about 400 men in t.h
Hawaiian national euard. and m a
attahon of infantry numbers about
00 men all the guard will have a
chance to enlist.
Asked By The Cubans For The Peace
Nw York Aug. 3. President Mc-
Kinley will soon le asked to include
the provisions on which peace will
be reestablished with Spain the free-
ng of all Cubans imprisoned -by that
country for offenses which may be
classed as political. In all the Snin.
lsh penal colonies Ceuta and the like
there are about 500 Cubans who have
been captured during the last three

LI HUNG CHANG
The Friend Of America Aoain In
San Francisco Aug. 3. Pekin ad
vices brought by the steamer Doric
July 18 throw fresh light on the cable
news that Li Hung Chang is once more
in power and acting as chancellor un-
der the empress Dowager. This was
brought about through the weakness
of the emperor who is recognized
totally unfit to deal with large matters
The empress dowager who is a very
able woman convinced him that he
must retire Wong who for several
years has been the head and front of
the party opposed to all foreign re-
forms and improvements. Foreigners
and the progressive oartv in China
are delighted. IS'o more radical or
more necessary first step toward pro
gress could have been taken.
The emperor was at last made to see
the old fossil Wong in his true light
and induced to rid himself of his "old
man of the sea" who wanted to be
head America's friend Li Hung Chang
during the Japanese war.

Must Trust Congress.
Washington Aug. 3 Among
public men today the statement is
heard that the peace commissioners to
be appointed on behalf of the United
States will have to serve without
knowing in advance what compensa-
tion they will receive. No money for

"Have you noticed the regular erang
of chronic jurymen in this town?" said
a business man this morning. "It is
wortn your wane to notice them. They
know more about the cases and when
they are to be called than the judges
and lawyers and are invariably on
hand to serve a jurors. Tbey will put
themselves directly in the way of the
constable when they know he is look
ing lor jurors and in some Instances
ask him if they cannot serve.
"borne oi them too make vary good
jurors. Tbey bave nothing on their
minds excepting the case which is be-
ing tried and the fee and they listen

possible. The longer they serve on a
case the greater tbe fee and why
shouldn't tbey be contented? I bave

was talking to me one day about a

afternoon and explained the whole af-
fair to me telling me who he thought
was the guilty party. I became so in-
terested in the case from his version of
it that I concluded to attend the trial
which I did.
'The first man my eyes rested urxm
was the professional juror to whom I
had been talking. He was with the
crowd to be examined for a juror in
tbe case and I wondered what business
he ' had there. Finally it
came his turn and the
lawyer asked 'Do you know either of
the parties in this case?' 'No.' 'Do
you know anything about tbe case?''
'No. 'Are you prejudiced either for
or against the parties in this case?'
'No. ' He was accepted and the man
he told me was guilty sure enough
