Havana, Jan. 22. Upon the return to
Muiizunillo of the gunboat Centiliela
after the sinking In the Canto river of
her consort the Hel'unpago by the ex
plosion of u torpedo planted by the reb
els, orders were given for a force of
Spanish troops to proceed to Ciunnio to
relieve the besieged garrison there,
which had been the object of the naval
expedition, but which had been frus
trated by the loss of the Kelampago
and the deuth or wounding of every
man on board that vessel and the Cen
tlnela, either through the explosion It
self or the subsequent rllle Hre from the
rebels who were ambushed on both
banks of the river.
The relieving expedition was under
the command of Colonel Tovar, who
with his brigade marched along the left
bank of the Cauto river, meeting de
tached parlies of rebels at various
places along the route. At Cayaino the
insurgents were gathered In quite
strong force, but after a short engage
ment they were driven from the town.
The Spanish force then proceeded for
Guamo, where they found that the insur
gents who had been attempting to cap
ture the fort, had disappeared. It was
learned that the rebels had attacked the
fort on January 6. They were in two
columns, one operating from the tight
bank of the river being under the com
mand of Callxto Gutciu, and the other
operating from the left bank being led
by Itabl. Many attempts were made to
carry the fort by assault, but in every
instance the garrison compelled the
enemy to retire. The Insurgents had
artillery and the projectiles from their
cannon unroofed the fort, but did no
serious damage to the heavy walls of
W'ATUll SUPPLIES CUT OFF.
Finding themselves unable to cap
ture the Spanish position the rebels
determined to attempt to compel Its
surrender by cutting off the supply of
water. In pursuuueo. of this object
trenches were dug In front of the place
from which the garrison obtained its
water, and a detachment of rebels were
placed therein to prevent the troops
The garrison, however, had sufficient
water to last with economy until the
rebels, eUd'yitly healing of the ap
proach o'f the reinforcements, raised
the siege and retired. Some time be
fore the enemy disappeared they blew
up with dynamite a barge that was em
ployed as a pontoon for the passage of
troops across the river.
The siege lasted fourteen days. The
garrison lost three killed and eight
wounded, while twelve men were made
sick by the close confinement within
the walls of the fort, the scant rations
and short supply of water.
The Spanish brigade under command
of General Molln, which has been oper
ating In the vicinity of Zarabanda In
the province of Miitanzas, has hail an
engagement with several combined
parties of rebels. The ofticlal report
says that the rebels were defeated and
routed. In their lllght many of them
throw themselves Into 'the Habuna
river and 15 were drowned and 24 per

troops lost two killed and seven

Alton, 111., Jan. 22. A farmer, who
was looking for stock along the Miss
issippi bank, a mile below this city,
came upon the body of a man lying near
the water's edge, and repotted the fact
to the police. The body was that of a
young, man dressed in the height of
fashion. In the forehead just above
the right temple was a wound that told
the story of death from a bullet. Ev

A smoldering fire of old wood showed
where the letters and papers belonging
to the dead man had been carefully de
stroyed with the evident purpose of pie
ventlng identification. A line silk um
brella lying open on the sand showed
on the handle of sterling silver where
the name and address of the owner had
been carefully erased. A lino gold
watch on the body and a pair of gold
spectacles had been similarly treated.
Despite all this caution, a memoran
dum book had been overlooked, and this
may give a clew to the personality of
the dead. In the book was found the
addresses of several New York business
houses, the Standard and Grand The

the arrest of the wife of one of the most
prominent shoe manufacturers In this
city and a traveling salesman from Os

HANNA FOR THE SENATE.
Ohio Legislature Favors tile Chairman.
Various Rumors Regarding the
Columbus, O., Jan. 22. The Intense
Interest In the selection of the succes
sor of Senator Sherman brought nearly
the whole membership of the seventy
second genet al assembly to the re
union to-day and the banquet to-night,
where Governor Bushnell presided and
Chairman Marl; A. Hanna. among
others, responded to a toast.
"I have merely come down for an
outing," said Chairman Hanna this
afternoon. "I have not been In the
best of health for some time, and took
advantage of the kind Invitation to join
in the re-union of members of the gen
eral assembly, with nearly all of whom
I am personally acquainted. There Is
nothing political In my visit."
It Is not believed, however, that Mr.
Hanna came here solely for his health.
Governor Bushnell called upon Mr.
ilanna at his quarters this evening and
tlie two chatted for a short time. Their
meeting was not a conference, how
ever, in any sense of the word.
A more slmillleunt fact was the con
ference In the governor's private olllee.
William H. Day, of Canton, a close
friend of Piesident-elect McKinley and
Lieutenant-Governor Jones, were
present. Mr. Duv denied himself to
newspaper men and left the city soon
after the conference.
Lieutenant-Governor Jones would not
discuss the senatorial question.
Ex-Governor Foster had engaged
quarters but telegraphed today that he
would notJj.e, in the city. Newton
Hathaway, ex-speaker of the house,
who seemed to be managing Foster's
boom for the senate at once left the
It Is evident that the majority of the
members of the legislature present are
for Hanna for the senate. The report
comes directly from Chairman Kurtz,
of the state committee who IS very close
to Governor Bushnell and Senator For
aker, that Bushnell will not appoint
Hanna to the senate. From the same
source also comes the statement that
the governor will not call a special ses
sion of the legislature.
From other sources It Is reported that
Bushnell will propose to Hanna that
