"Washington, January 18.
Tho announcement of tho appoint
ment of General "Voloraino Woylor
as Captain-Gonoral of Cuba was
received at Cuban headquarters as
confirmatory of tho viow thoy had
already pxpressod upon tho news
of Campos' retirement, that thoro
has been a radical chango in tho
policy of tho Spanish Cabinet and
that lioucoforth thoro is to bo a
reign of blood and terror in Cuba.
Tho chango in tho Cabinet itself,
in tho retirement of tho Duko of
Totuan and tho succession of
Sonor El Duayon as Minister of
Foreign Affairs, is regarded
as still' furthor confirming
this idoa. General "Woylor is
a veteran soldior and has
had his own pxporionco in Cuban
revolutions, for ho followed tho
fortunes of tho Spanish army in
Cuba for years during tho last
revolution with tho rank of colo
nel and earned for himself a
dreadful reputation as a man of
blood and iron.
Moreover, tho Cuban loaders
hero hint at actions of cruolty to
women and dofonseless prisoners
in his past in a fashion
that augurs ill for tho robols who
como within his power, and thoy
predict that ho will soon bocomo
involved in trouble with tho
United States Government as Iho
result of his ill trontment of Ame
rican citizens who may bo unfor
tunato onough to fall under sus
picion. General Woylor quitted
Cuban ground Boon after tlio sup
pression o tho Inst rebellion and
lms sinco dwelt in Spain, holding
tho important position of Captain
Geiioral o tho Province of Catalonia.

How n Chinaman 3ot llliutclf una
I'rlcnd in Trouble.
Thoro is something peculiar
about tho ways of crooks in gen
eral, but this is especially tho
caso with Chineso who try to
"work" the Hawaiian Islands for
profit. A fow days ago it was
givon out that tho customB
authorities had captured Jon Sao
with forty tins of opium at tho
quarantine station, while tho
immigrants who arrived by tho
Coptic woro at that interesting
and picturesque place. Later tho
tragic story of tho prisonous
attempt at suicid,o was rolated.
Facts havo been, gathered by a
Bulletin reporter, however,
whioh prove that tho customs offi
cials had nothing to do with tho
matter, unless tho culprit himself
is to bo regarded as having beon
for tho nonco a functionary ot
that bureau. Ho was indeed to
all appearancos tentatively filling
such a position, but in fact ho
was exploiting a rascally trick, or
sorios of tricks, which, lesultcd in
his own undoing.
Jon Sao applied for tho position
of special customs officer, and
wanted a trial of his dotectivo
abilities mado with tho Coptic's
immigrants. Ho wus sure ho
could scent out any opium that
might bo nmong their effects, and
ho was allowed to ry hfa nose at
the quarantine station. "Whon tho
baggage was being turned out for
fumigation, together with tho
boxes and wrappers containing it,
Jiin Sno treated tlio operations
with sublimo indifference. Ho
walked up nnd down botweon the
rows of stuff, assuming a lofty air
of inattontion and making no at
tempt at search. "When asked why
hodid notoxamino oithor tho effects
of tho immigrants or thoir persons
as thoy woro paraded in the corral,
tho probationary detective inform
ed the questioner that ho know
what ho was about and would de
signate whero opium was to bo
found in his own good time and
way. Jen Sao is ono of those pro
tontious Chinamen who affect a
familiarity with English equal to
Unit with thoir own .convolutPil
At length Jen Sao approached
J. D. McVeigh, quarantine officer
of tho Board of Health, and point
ing to cortain baskets informed
him that ho would find tho opium
thoroin. Mr. McVoigh, astonished
at tho prescionco of tho dotectivo
in discovering opium without
looking for it, dived into tho
baskets and sure enough brought
forth forty tins of tho contraband
drug. Tho Chinaman who ap
parently owned the baskets mado
no attempt to conceal tho fact that
thoy had boon landed as part of
his effects. Ho uas asked if ho
did not know that tho importation
of opium was prohibited and that
his. possession of -it mildo
him liublo to both fiuo
and imprisonment. His ro
ply was that it mado no difference
to him, as tho opium was not his
property. Then whoso was it?
In answer to this question tho
immigrant pointed to Jon Sao,
ami wont on to give a full expla
nation. Jon Sao, according to tho immi
grant's account, had SQiit a return
pormit to this man's brother, say
ing that ho could havo tho use of
it without charge ' to come to Ho
nolulu, on condition that ho
brought with him a quantity of
opium for Sao. His brothor could
not como himself, so this man
carao on tho fraudulont pormit.
And horo ho was, with tho opium.
Jen Sao was arrested on this in
formation. Ii is hard to say if ho
really intondod to got tho .opium
on tho market horo for his own
account, or simply laid tho wholo
plan to obtain tho appointment re
ferred to upon tho customs Btaff.
In the former caso, tho probabi
lity IB that his brief tenure of sor
vico mado him roalizo that tho
mode of inspection 'of .baggage at
tho quarantine Btation was too
thorough to pormit tho passago of
the opium. Theroforo his only
recourso was to sacrifico tho dupo.
