TO TAX AN'i r.'RACITE COAL.
An effoit Is to be made to seeuie leg

a 5 cent pei ton tax on the pioduct

Ifnless state expenses aie gieatly

will have to be made In all the appio

chopped down a million or two. If It

mote Important ones not already filled
It was stated that the result of the
committee' dellbetattons will not be
made public until the house meets at
Iliirlsburg, but from tellable somces
it was learned that thete was no wish

pi'iilsh their factional opponents by
cutting them off from all pattonage.
The sentiment of the committee
seems to be In favor of recognizing the
claims of Wamimnker men In the

a fair share of the olllces. The slate

Its session until that body meets.

GEN. WEYLER' S VICTIMS
Hundreds of Innocent and Peaceable
Citizens of Cuba Are Driven
from Tbcir Homes.
Key West, Jan. 15. Advices from
Havana state that the effect of Wey
ler's famous Bnyate edict ol the Hist
Instant Is being felt with moie Intensity
In the piovinces of Havana and Matuu
zas than that of Plnar Del Rio, since
these piovinces, being mote thickly
populated and with mote farms and
estutes than the fotmer, the wholesale
abandonment ot the piopeitles and the
couceutt ation of the people in the tow ns
will not only augment the misery al
leadv prevailing, but also piesent the
serious Inconvenience of lodging so
many people in towns alieady full to
Without discussing Wey lei's unhii
man measuie In dpiling peaceful and
unoflendlng citizens of their tlghtful
means of existence, and huddling them
in alieady ciowded spaces, exposed to
all the ilgois of hunger and disease,
simply for the sake of dealing the coun
tiy of so-called lebel sympalhieis, a
legal point has been spiling by the for
eign piopeity ownets, especially the
Amei leans, who own large piopeitles In
the provinces of Havana and Matanzas,
which will surely lead to complication:,
and claims on the Spanish government.
Weyler distinctly states In his decree
that those who wish to remain on their
piopeitles must exhibit the last tax
bill paid. As taxes aie only levied on
pioduttlve Industiies, and thee plant
el s have not been able to woik on ac
count of the abnoimal conditions! in the
piovinces since Gomez's Invasion In De
cember, 18U3, no taxes have been col
lected since that time, the government
admitting such unusual ciicumstances
or being poweiless to collect them be
cause the lebels weie In possession of
the country, did not pi ess their collec
tion, consequently no taxes have been
paid in the countiy since the date men
tioned. Resides that, Wey let has un
officially otdeted that no sugai ciop
should be made and now he wants the
sugar planleis to pay taxes on an In
dustry which they have not been able
to pioduce. One tesult was that the
managei of the sugnr estate "San An
tonio" near Madi'ig,, Havnnn, owned
by Mr. Antonio Teiiy, an Amei lean
citizen lesldlng In Pails, piesented him
self to Consul Lee, demanding piotec
tion, because the mllltaiy commandei
of Mldtuga otdeted him to abandon the
placp, one ot the most valued estates
lu the pioince, and woith at least half
a million dollais, because he did not
piesent the tequlied tax bill. Consul
Lee at once took the case In hand and
simultaneously piesonted the same to
the captain-genoinl and the state de
pai tinent at Washington. No leplles
have been terelved yet, either from
Weyler or from Secietniy Olney.
To depict tlie situation in Plnar Del
Rio, nothing can be better said than
to translate the lepoit of a tilp made
to the city of that name by a cone
spondent of La Lucha.
All the way travel sed by the rallioad
from Artemlsa to Consolaclon Del Sur,
is, without exaggeiatlon, the most
chastised and undoubtedly has suffeied
most from the i Igors of wnr.
The fields wasted and abandoned, the
bushes and tiees burnt, and the yellow
arid decayed leaves stiewn by the wind,
the huts destioyed, the stone houses, in
other times happy homes, converted by
the hands of lebels and Spaniards alike
into heaps of ruins, the black and fal
len walls of which only serve as a
refuge of the lis-airis and owls, the
cane Helds dtled up and coveted with
bushes, by the lavages of fire, the
towns, the uuthoiities of which aie
making great eflotts to tcniedy the ne
cessities ot the tesldents, full of people,
of poor families, who dally tioops down
from the hills, extenuated by hunger
nnd emaciated by the revet s In such a
way that they resemble skeletons ilon
out of their tombs to appear before the
final judgment; to the light and left of
the toad, as much as the ttaln winds Its
rapid mutch, the tiaveler obsetves with
painful anguish the desolation and lulu
wlUiln the Inextinguishable poetry of
their exuberant ileitis, always gieen
with the eternal 'otdllie or apt lug, as
if God, with His eloquence would point
us that the onlv thing we men can do
Is to desttoy the beauties which surged
