"These estimates are not Intended to

sum up, this conservative Spanish news

approximates -10,000 men. This looks like
rather a robust revolution.
"In tile province or Santa Clara, Rego's

men readied headquarters 7esleiday and
reported 1,000 me;i in that camp. There
are twice the number of men in Santa

floes not need men. She needs rifles and
ammunition. She is very much in jieed of
artillery, as the Spanish have erected
small fortifications at strategic points,

VIEWS OF SPANISH PAPERS.
"La Justilla, of Madrid, of October 5
prints a letter from Havana which pic
tures a bad state of affairs on the.island.
It (.ays that laborers are Idle by the thou
sand nnd that hunger with all its horrors
has inaded the homes of the -planter, the
laborer, the merchant and the manufac
turer. It narrates that the prisons arcfilled
Willi susiiects, and that the aspect of the
Jails Is a dlrgrace to tho honor of Spain.
It violently denounces the crookedness, cru
elty and unfitness of the Spanish-officials
in Cuba, and asserts that the operations
of Cnuijios have Increased the magnitude
ot the iu.iurrectiun. La Justitia proceeds
to admonish the government 'that It will
require the sacrifice of 80,000 men to hold
the island. The same paper wallops
Sagasta, ex -prime minister, for bis state
ment that .no more reinforcements would
be needed. It claims that the vlgllnncei

I talked yesterday with Paul Weber, an
American, from La Selle, III., -who is the
man referred to by Senor Quesada.-ais hav
ing returned from Rego's camp in Santa
Clara. He looked much the worse for hard
living nnd poor diet. He thinks the chances
for Cuban independence aregood. Rego has
1.000 men under him, and although poorly
armed and practically without commissary
system, tbe discipline is being improved.
In all their long engagements with tbe
Spanish they Inflicted greater loss than
they sustained. Their method was to at
tack suddenlv and nt the right timeretrent.

tion of Such h Body.
The committee on Invitations for the
Cuban mass meeting is called to meet this
evening. The session "will be held ln lloom
"I. Metzerott Building, at 7'30 o'clock.
Mr. Bush rod "Robinson, chairman of
this committee, has taken off bis coat and
means that. bis part or the meeting shall
be a success. "I have "been Interested in
Cuban freedom ever since I was a boy,"
he said. "I think we should do all in our
power to help the la-urgents. Every cit
izen in tills country should believe in repub
lics.and should be willing tuaidliitheestab
liahment or one."
The committee on invitations lias some
what of a Job before It. The Intention is
to formally invite all patriotic orders to
attend in a body. Among the invitations
sent out-will bo ones to Uie UrandArmy, of
the District, Sons of the Rcolution,
Daughters of the -Revolution, Colonial
Dames, Loyai Legion, Union Veteran Le
gion, Sons of "Veterans, "Washington Light
Infantry, National JMtles, und other civil
organizations among the iiiihtary.
Corp. Tanner, c3iairmnii of the committee

relumed from the meeting or the Union
Veteran Legion. He will be here to mor
row or next day, and -will call bis com
mittee together at once.
MaJ. ltoome is busy with the Jtoyal Order
or Scotland, and the meeting or the Thirty
third degree masons. He will get a little
time to morrow, and will call the committee
on speakers together. Mr. F.H.Iletzcrolt,
of the committee on halls, will have his
committee meet bim in a few days. He
has already donated Metzerott Hall, and
Uie only arrangements meessarj are for
tbe overflow meeting.
So great Is tbe interest being expressed in
the Cuban moiemcnt. that It is more than
probable a iicnuanent committee of fifty

ment are much Impressed Tilth theJiecessity
or some uich action. Congress will soon
meet, and there will be an absolute need
or such an organization. This can only
tie secured by tbe appointment of Midi a
tiody. The duties of this committee,
or rather its officers, would lie -onerous.
They would act as Uie -central liody for tbe
entire country- To them -would lie sent
all petitions und iximmunicalions, and the
committee would see that they were pre
sented to Congress. '

Corbett and Fltzahumons meeting in the
ring than there were twenty-four hours
Corbett came to town from his training
quarters this evening lor the purpose of
meeting Martin Julian, the representative
of Fitzslniiuons, and as the result of a
stormy interview, in -which Julian rejected
every proposlUon made by the champion,
Uie latter washed his hands of the -whole

Corbctt's hurried visit to town was pre

Associated Charities Discuss Its
MANAGEMENT UNDER FIEE
Amendments to tlie Constitution Pro
posed by lr. Hlce IVurui Debute,
ln Which It Is -Declared That the
Public JJs 2fot Satisfied with tbe
"The public are not satisfied and are
complaining. A great many people in
this District, whom -we cannot ignore, -are
criticisbaj the way in which the business
of the Associated Charities is conducted."
This was part of an interesting speech
ln which Dr. M. JJ. Peck, one of the vice
presidents ot tlie Associated Charities,
maintained that there should be a change,
in the way thlugsare at present managed
by that institution.
in furtherance or his expressed desire
for a chauge in the rules aud regulations,
he presented at the meeting or the board
of miuiagers, which was held last Ughl,
certain amendments to the constitution,
which were the subject and provocaUou of
discussion which will interest tlie public
There were pretcnt Dr. W. I-- Parsons,
-prci ident of the lioard, w ho gnve notice
lai t it eiiing that he w ould not serve alter
thit tueetlng as a member of ice boaru,
lit ould continue ava member of the or
ganization; Mr T. G. Lacier, Dr. M. D.
Peck, General Secretary L. S. tuicry, B.
P Davit, MissK.Hosnier.Mrs. K. Roberts,
of the W R- C; .Mrs. M.JL. Burt, Mrs. G.
H. Ricbardton, Mr. Lorlng Chapelle, Mrs.
Br. Hood, Mr. J. H. Bradford, and Dr.
The amendments introduced by Dr.
Peck, which -were of t pedal interest were.
Firtt, that a new on.mlttee should be
named to be called the relicf?fcanmlttec,
which thould have general supervision over
all exiicnditures and the distribuUou of
tupplies to the worthy dependent poor,
thk committee to act in conjunction with
the i ecretnry. and that it should adopt a
tchedule of distribution and exiienditures
Tlie amendment lurlher provided thut-all
theie expenditures should be approved by
OFFICES AXD EMPLOYES.
The other amendment which -was acted
on Tclated to olflces and employes, it
Is proposed that this committee shall have
charge of the selection and renting of an
office, of the necessary number and char
acter of the employes of the board and
make recommendations under the approval
of thelxiard as to the location and rental
of the orfice and the compensation of em
ployes. Both of these amendments, which to be
ot rorce must be carried by the vote of the
general society, which will be beld on the
fifth of next month, mere regarded as an
erfortto takeout or the hands of Secretary
Emery the functions which he now dis
charges, so far as covered by the amend
ments. Mr. Bradford said openly that he looked
upon it as a reflection on the managem"nt
of tbe board, if not of the secretary.'.nd
characterized the amendment as a rchemc.
Dr.Ricesaid- "I denounce Uie statement
that this is a scheme, for It is onr duty
in handling public money that we should
have good rules by which to be governed.
We have no rules of order, for I regard
thoseadopted In Februaryas very general."
mat the keynote of the work of the
chnrlUes -was promptness and that to
place in the hands of a committee emer
gency -work would defeat that object; that
committees could not be gotten together
when desired and that great wrong might
possibly be done to thepoor and unfortunate
beneficiaries of the society. He had no
doubt that there -were some complaints,
but tbe general -work of the society for the
past rourtecn years -was an evidence
Uiat it had been well done.
DEFEATED ITS FURPOSE.
Mr. Bradford said that they did aot
want too many rules. The public was
aware of the fact that people -were turned
away from tlie doors of charitable insUtu
MoMs In thiscltv simnlv because there were
rules which forbade any discretion to the'
"I say aud I repeat," he continued,
"that this is a reflecUonon the board and
on the secretary, and 1 know that Dr.
Peck has made the statement In public that
Uie public is disgruntled with our management-"
After some further discussion on this line,
tbe amendment was adopted ln u modified
form. As It now standi the relief commit
tee shall be empowered to make a schedule
of regulations for tbe exiienditures of
money aud for the disJbuUon of supplies.
As originally intended, the committee, was
to have supervisloo of all moneys ex
pended and supplies distributed.
There was another debate when the
amendment providing ror the committee
on offices ncd employes came up. Dr.
Peck insisted that It was not Intended as
a reflection on anybody or on the board of
Mr. Emery said that If the resolution
was carried, as proposed by Dr.. Peck, no
secretary with self resuyct -would remain as
such for a single day after their pnssage.
The object or the amendment was tortakc
away the power or nppolnUng bis as
sistants from the secretary, which every
secretary had tbe right to do.
STOOD BY THE SECRETARY.
Dr. Bradford again made the point that
the amendment threw unnecessary restric
tions around the boardand Itsofflcers.
Mr. Lorlng Chepelle deprecated the dis
cussion of all these matters and the raking
ap of old disagreements and Mr. Lasler
moved the discontinuance of the discus
sion until -some future date.
Mr. Davis moved to amend the amend
ment so as to give tbe secretary the
power to appoint his assistants -with the
approval of the president.
Mr. Bradford opposed the -whole amend
ment, and intimated that Dr. Peck took
pains to hear -a great deal that -was said
to tbe disadvantage utthe Associated Char
ities, and the result of the whole discus
sion was "that we were bringing ourselves
into disrepute- I am tired and disgusted
with tho discussion." 'he added.
When finally offered -fur -passage the
amendment stood tbi3 -way: "The com
mittee on iitf Ices :and employes shall have
charge ot tbe matter ot selecting and rent-

EMERY HAD FRIENDS.
Mr. Emery developed -great -strength
when tills was -voted on. The vote stood
six to six and was decided in Uie affirm
ative by the president, Dr. Parsons, who
made a statement Incxpla nation of his vote.
ln Hie ftrstj5lace."'be said, "we are aot
in the right shape before the public as to the
board and as to the secretary. The rental
of tbe office is In a confused state."
He saw no objection to such a committee
as at present Uie secretary's accounts
are passed upon by an auditing committee.
When he -was away last summer he was
unable to give any information to in
quirers as to how tho business was
conducted. He ttiougbt It -would be better
that the secretary should bnve a salary
and that the rents of Uic various rooms
in tbe building should be in account with
the $01 a tuonth that is charged for the
building. He thought that the society
should do the renting of the office.
Mr. Emery said tliat he could not get an
office In the name of the society and that
Hie rents were in his name.
Dr. Parsons said that he would cot care
to belong to a society which could not rent
an ofrice in its own name, but he was of
the Impression that the society could secure
sach a lease.
Mr. Emery explained that the objection
was not to the society but to the character
ot the people who frequent the rooms.
