Omaha, Neb., Dee. 30.—Senator
Thurston spoke before the members
of the Chautauqua circle on the Cuban
situation. In beginning he announced
his intention to v.pie for the recognition
of Cuban independence, and towards
the latter part of his speech his words
gave the impression that he would be a
little disappointed if that action did not
bring 011 a war. He declared that he did
not want war, but there were worse
things. As bad been said by an Omaha
preacher, "war is liod's thunderstorm,
which clears the atmosphere." All
through history war had been the most
powerful factor in bringing about
progress. A war that had for its pur-
pose liberty and justice was God'., war,
and worked out God's purpose in the
destinies of mankind. Senator Thurs-
ton said that he would cast bis vote
for the recognition of Cuban inde-
pendence with the full knowledge that
such action was fraught with grave
danger to national peace. Spain was
the descendant of an aristocratic fam-
ily and was tenacious of family pride.
He seriously apprehended that when
this country placed itself on record for
Cubarf recognition the Spanish min-
istry would declare war on the United
States, regardless of the consequences.
The Cuban situation was a blot on the
civilized world and a reproach to every
American citizen. Its condition called
for patriotic action by every lover of
liberty on this side of the ocean.
No Formal Negotiations Yet.
Washington, Dec. 30.-At the state
department denial is made of the re-
port in the Washington l'ost that Pre-
mier Canovas, of Spain, lias sent Secre-
tary Olney a communication accepting
the mediation of the United States in
the carrying out of the autonomy for
Cuba, it is said no such letter
has been sent, nor has anything
* of such a nature passed through
the Spanish officials here. Nego-
tiations toward home rule have pro-
ceeded for some months, and the last
phase of these negotiations indicated
an enlargement of the home rule laws
adopted by the Spanish cortes last
year, but not put in execution. These
arrangements embrace the election of
an entire Cuban congress, instead of a
mixed congress of 15 elected members
and 15 appointed by the queen regent,
and also a complete control by I uba
of her tariff. The latest statement
regarding Spain's intentions with re-
spect to the pacification of Cuba, there-
fore, deals with the past phase of them,
Spain having decided on a considerably
more liberal scheme of reforms than
the old one to which the Post referred.
As yet, however, the nejfociations with
respect to the enlarged reforms are
tentative. A draft of them has not
been received at Washington ami the
information of them is of a general
New York's Senator.
Ni-:w York, Dec. 30.—The republican
club, of New York, lias refused to in-
dorse the candidacy of .losepli II.
Choate for United States senator.
Every follower of Thomas C. Piatt in
the club was present. The meeting
was very lively and at times uproar-
ious. For the resolutions laid
over last week indorsing Choate
n substitute was adopted de-
claring it ill-advised that any action
should be taken regarding the possible
candidacy of any person, and that it
was the sense of the club that no ac-
tion should be taken. The Union Re-
publican club of Brooklyn and the
Progress Republican club of New York
have adopted resolutions indorsing
Thomas t. Piatt for senatoi.
A Movement on Foot for Some llntton or
Itailci' tu Distinguish Old Soldiers of the
St. Louis, Dec. 30.—There is a move-
ment on foot among a number of St.
Louis war veterans to submit a propo-
sition to all veterans of the northern
army in the late war which will tend
to bind their decreasing numbers with
a closer tie than that of local acquaint-
ance. It is said the Orand Army of
the Republic and other organizations,
to which a service in the ranks during
the war entitles them to membership,
do not include a vast number of veter-
ans for various and sundry reasons.
These non-members have no mark,
badge, button or distinction by which
they may be known as veterans and
the proposition is to give thein one.
Chicago, Dec. 30.—When Mr McKin-
lev shall take the oath of office on
March 4 his personal escort will he

ron and the 1 :ev. 1111 '1 "rays (
land's crack orgaiiiy,a.inii. I lie I us-
sars were asked and promised last
night in a big meeting at the t.reat
Northern hotel to accept the honor
of the escort. This matter was
considered early by President-
elect McKinley. Each of these
bodies offered its services as escort.
Finally the Grays were selected, lhe
Gravs deliberated and then decided it
would be the nice thing to invite the
Hussars to share the duly with them.
Ail of the members of the escort will
be mounted <111 black horses, and they
count on making an effective display.
The Hussars will stop ovur on the way
home at New York for one day, and
perhaps give a fancy drill.
