HON. JOHN R. ROGERS AND HON. THURSTON DANIELS. Brief IMo R ™,>hlcai Sketches of the Newly Elected Governor a..d Lieutenant- Ooveruor of the Stae of Washington. John R. Rogers, the governor elect of Washington, was born September 4, 1838, at Brnnswick. Me. He enjoyed good educational facilities, but left home at an early age to learn the.drug business in Boston. He went to the Btate of Mississippi in 1856, where some years were passed as a druggist. Daring the late war he lived in South ern Illinois, where he taught school, fiualy buying a farm and becoming a farmer. As all his relatives were Democrats and Southern sympathizers, he quite naturally held the same views. In 1870 he returned to his native town and the drug business. In 1876 he went to Kansas, again becoming a farmer. He was elected to a number of minor offices as a greenback Repub lican. In 1887 he established the Kan sas Commoner now published at Wich ita, one of the influential Populist papers of that state, and was...

THE RECALL OF WEYLER. I The Orders, It is Said, Will Very Soon Be Issued. New York, Jan. 6.—News has teen ' received by the Cuban junta from Washington. that the Spanish govern- j ment has positively determined to re- j call Captain-General Weyler. *»'j General Primo de Rivera, it is said, j will succeed General Weyler in Cuba. He is captain-general in the Spanish army, and in favor with the Canovas government. Minister Taylor, it is said, informed Secretary Olney several days ago that the authorities at Madrid were on the point of relieving General Weyler of his command in Cuba and of appointing as his successor Captain-General Rivera. Reasons were given in brief why a change was deemed advisable and a statement was made as to the probable time when the orders would be promul gated. It is learned the Madrid government is displeased at the fact that General Weyler, with about 200,000 troops, has not put down the Cuban revolt. He has expended large sums of money, but so far has made ...
