Chicago, Sept. 30. Surrounded by pa
triotic mottoes with the American flag
as a back ground, tlie Declaration of Inde

liberty as an inspiration, 4,000 persons
yelled themselves hoarse to-night In the
cause of Cuban Independence. There could
scarcely have been more enthusiasmhud the
meeting been held In Cuba Itself.
Central Music Hall was not big enough to
hold all the sympathizers and there was an
overflow meeting In the auditorium of the
Young Men's Christian Assoclationbullding.
At both meetings the same resolutions were
adopteil and speeches were made by men
prominent in civic affairs, all of whom
uncompromisingly favored thefreeilomof the
little lsuitifl from the thraldom of Spain.
MESSAGES OF SYMPATHY.

to hia own country in tlie face of its action
toward the oppressed. The dawn of Cuba's
redemption was already breaking.
A reference made by Dr. Gunsaulus to the
inactivity of the administration met with
cheers and uproarious applause and the
temper or the audience was evident before
ten leniences had been coniphned.
Dr. Gunsaulus was lollowed by Thomas

the reading ol the-resolutions. In full they
