1IG WANTS REVENGE.
One of the Culuns now living in tills
citj has received some unpleasant
news. His name Is not glen because
ills family yet have property in Cuba.
The news was lli.it his brother had Just
Iks-ii sentenced to twenty- 3 ears impris
onment at hard labor in a Spanish penal
settlement for treason.
The brother was a lawyer nt Santiago,
lie was dracKisl from his house three
weeks ago by SpanMi soldiers, lie was
given a tlrumhead court martial trial and
was senlenctsl as suited allure.- There
was 110 appeal. The Washington brother
just recemsl tlie bare stalemcnt of the
sentence. He is anxiously waiting for
del.uU of the arrest and trial. He hopes
to secure them, but fears they may never
come. The government censorship ex
tends even to the mails and he is afruld
a letter can scarcely gel through. Some
friend may smuggle him the intelligence.
it will be experiences of this kind which
will arouse the Washington, sympathizers
at the mass meeting, lien whose friends
have Eiif fired and are Miffi'ring will tell
tlie story of the struggle for liberty. Many
business and professional men of the city
have been In Culm In the past Jear. They
are being requested to present their views
on what thi'y saw. If they will do so
some rer lnteresll'ig information will
be given. Such information coming from
such sources will have great vv eight.
The question of granting belligerent
rights to the Culian patriots will be dis
cussed at the meeting It Is the duty or
the President to recognize a govcriuni'iit,
and Congress can -only pass resolutions
suggesting such action. There are
numerous prcivdenls by which the admin
istration con be governed. There si-i-ms
to be but little doubt of the next Congress.
Trlends of Cuba claim that they have
two thirds of the lucnilicrR of the next
House and a majority of the Senate. If
necessary they can rcsiuesl the President
to take certain action.
These men, though, hope lo Focuic action
before Congress meets. All the influence
that can be secured will be brought to
bear upon the President. He will lie
urged to lake this most popular step If
he does so the Cuban rc-prcsentntlvcs In
this country will hac secured all they
A recognition of belligerent rights will
at once give the Culnn republican form of
government a standing. Then their war
vessels can sail the seas without being
captured as pirates. They can bring In
prizes to the points of the country recog
nizing them, nnd sell them If they so
desire. They can cuter neutral ports and
coal and provision themselves.
Willi this recognition a fast armored
sleanier could sweep the Spanish fleet
from West Indian waters. Cubans claim
If they have such a chance It is all they
want. That Is -what they will try to get
from this present administration.

"Three or four days of north wind will
be the signal for tlie commenc'einent of act
ive operations against the rebels In Cuba,"
said Scuor Dupuy do Lome j esterelay, and
within a few weeks there will, in his
opinion, lie a radii al change in tlie situa
tion on the Island. The campaign, which
has l-tfii thoroughly planned, will be vig
orously prosecuted in all the revolted
districts, and lie is confident that the gov

Senor Depuy ele Lome reiterates the as
sertion, winch he thinks perhaps has not
been clearly understood, that the govern
ment has been compelled to wait for the
cessation of the rainy season and to content
Itself with massing its troops until it was
possible to carry out military operations
against the rebels whose disorganized
methods of fighting and comparative seclu
sion in the mouutnlnous districts rendered
futile all efforts to dislodge and disperse
them at a time when rivers rose as much
as fifty feet In a few days.
Tlie Spanish commanders could not hope
to maneuver bodies of troops under such
eircum-lances, nor was It jiosslble to at
tack the guerilla strongholds In the tornado
season which follows immediately on tho
rains. A few days of steady north winds
he said would dissipate the cyclonic condi
tions of the atmosphere, nnd immediately
following tills the concerted advance from
the coast,which Is now In complete control
of tlie royal forces, would commence and
continue to a conclusion.
Of tlie result he had no doubt. He
predicts that the bands of rebels will
lie rapidly dispersed and driven from the
interior only to be met at tlie coast by
the other Spanish forces, which in con
nection with the twenty-six new gunboats
and launches will have eslabhshc-d a com
plete cordon around the Island and pre
ent the escape of the rebels.
The nlue launches purchased In this
country together with the others sent
from England, are relleel upon to cap
ture all the leaders of tho resolution, it
being the determination of the government
that none of tho agitators will be per
mitted to escape and foment further
The minister docs not place Hie slightest
dependence upon reports that any govern
ment Is considering the propriety of rec
ognizing a stale of belligerency in Cuba,
as the delay of Spain In attacking the
rebels Is thoroughly understood.
In the next week or two the news from

that agitation In favor of the rebels will

"Why is It roa have not had him ar

invaded. In Richmond a party of about
forty had been engaged, but they post
poned their departure because they wanted
to attend a cake walk. Their railroad
tickets had been purchased ami cy,crj tiling
arranged. But the darkles declared the
cake walk was of more importance than
all tlie shows In New York.
Nevertheless, they gave up their cake
walk and went to New York. Why they
did so didn't leak out until they arrived
North and told a wonderful tale about a
rabbit's foot which the. agent who con
