Washington, Dec. 3.—A crisis in the
affairs of Cuba is rapidly approaching
ami there is every reason to believe
that President Cleveland has decided
on action which will startle the coun-

sage on Venezuela, although the ex-
act time of the announcement depends
somewhat on future operations in
Cuba. By this action the president

gurd. but will simply carry it out to
its logical conclusion, which is a
direct and open threat of active
intervention on the part of the
United States to secure peace on
the islaud, whether by the nde-
pcndence of the patriots or by volun-
tary action on the part of Spain.
From three different sources the policy
partially agreed upon between Secre-
tary < Jlney and President Cleveland was
learned, and the reports in each case
tallied with surprising unanimity. A
definite and somewhat startling an-
nouncement on the Cuban question
will be made to Congress, either in the
regular annual message or in the sup-
plementary communication, as was the
ease i'i dealing with the Venezuelan
question. Minister Dupuy de Lome of
the Spanish legation has been fully ad-
vised of the impending announcement
and he accepts what is in effect an
ultimatum. >>elieving that Spain will be
able to prevent action ou the part of
the I nited States by the success of
Weyler'a operations in Cuba. The pol-
icy to be adopted is scarcly a matter of
doubt any longer, and unless there
should be some sudden changes ia.it/-
fairs iu the island through the success
or failure of Wtyler's campaign, the
issue will soon Is* sharply drawn be-
tween this country and Spain.

Washington, Pec. 3.—A medal of
honor has been awarded to John S.
Durham of Kansas City, Kan., late
sergeant company F, first Wisconsin
infantry volunteers, for distinguished
gallantry in action at the battle of
Perryville, Ky., October 8, 1802.
Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 3.—There is
not a man in Kansas City, Kan., that
knows John S. Durham.- There is not
a man that docs not know Mark Crom-
well. Hut Mark Cromwell is John S.
Durham and has been ever since the
war. Since October 8,1802,when at Per-
ryville he carried on a stricken field
and in the storm of a belching battery
the tattered ternnantof his regimental
flag to safety and honor he has been
a man of divers callings and one
to whom fortune was not always kind.
Soldier, theatrical manager, comedian,
playwright and "strong man" in a cir-

gendary memory, these are but part of

scenes of life by Mark Cromwell—a

and HoiiMcliolder.. Forced to Move
Their (toodi*—limine-* Sus-
pended—Waiting r« r tUe
Worst to Come.
Chippewa Falls, Wis., Dec. 3.—
About 3 o'clock this morning the water
began to rise rapidly a/ain and inside
of four hours an additional rise of
eighteen inches had been registered.
The river at 10 o'clock was twenty-four
feet high and rising. The Spring
street merchants who ha 1 stored their
goods in sceond Hoors determined to
take no chances and everything was
moved to-day and by night there will
not be a dollar's worth of material re-
maining. Business has be n aban-
doned and hundreds of people are anx-
iously waiting the lloo I. Experts be-
lieve that the gorge will soon become
anchored to the bottom of the river
and the river must flow out around it.
Its natural course in this event lies
directly behind the town.
Three thousand pounds of dynamite
arrived thi3 morning, and men have
been at work at various points along
the river, but all attempts to break the
gorge have so lar failed.
All of the buildings on River street
are to-day Hooded to the second story,
and the formation of ice around them
is doing serious damage to the struc-
tures. The Central depot is under
three feet of water and will probably
be carried away before night. The
Milwaukee freight depot is in a similar
situation and the coal sheds near by
have been wrecked by the ice.
A report reached here this morning
that the gorge at Little Falls dam,
eighteen miles above the city, had
broken, permitting a rush of water
upon the town, but Manager Irvine of
the Chippewa Lumber company dis-
credits the story.
Fifty of the largest business firms
have abandoned their structures en-
tirely ami every resident has made
preparations to seek a place of safety
in case the worst occurs. An estimate
of the damage already done in this
place and the rich farming -country
about it cannot be made, but it is be-
lieved it has already reached hundreds
of thousands of dollars.
Dukanh. Wis., Dec. 2.—The iee gorge
below here forced the water within
four feet of the great 1**4 flood h'ight
last night, tilling cellars and ov. rOow-
ing the lower streets. The ice has
closed in and the line of formation is a
mile aln ve the city. The river has
fallen below Hound Hill, where the
gorge has broken.
Chairman Cannon Out linen the Proliablo
Course of the Ifousr.
Washington, Dee. 3.—The sub-com-
mittee on the legislative bill of the
House appropriations committee had a
long conference with the civil service
commissioners yesterday. Chairman
Cannon said: "Throngh the courtesy
of the treasury department the com-
mittee on appropriations has on hand
advance copies of the estimate*
covering all the bills over
which the committee has juris-
diction. The committee will no
doubt make considerable progress in
analyzing these statements before Con-
gress meets on next Monday. It would
not be proper for me to speak at this
time of the details of any of these esti-
mates, but. as published recently, the
estimates for fortifications amount to
something more than 815,000.000. At
the last session of Congress there was
an important departure from the meth-
ods of appropriations for fortifications
by giving the secretary of war author-
ity to enter into contracts for material
and labor for the construction of guu
and mcrtar batteries at the important
ports of our seacoast to the exteut of
82.500.000. Just what the department
has done in the way of acting under
this authority has not yet been devel-
oped. The committee possibly will be
enabled to have the pension appropri-
ation bill ready to report to the House
on the first or second day of the ses-
sion. They expect to have the legis-
lative bill in condition to report by the
middle or last of the first week of con-
"What in your judgment, will be the
policy of the committee touching lib-
eral appropriations for the public
"It is perfectly well understood that
the revenues received by the govern-
ment are not equal to the expenditure*
and that the deficit has been and is
being paid from the proceeds of money
borrowed at interest. Keeping this
condition in view, in my judgment.
Congress will provide for appropria-
te ns for au executive public service,
taking care, however, to avoid ex-
