Representative Cook, of Fulton, de
ceased. MR. KUNKEL'S ELOQUENCE.
When the senate resolution opposing
the appiopi luting of any money for a
new cupitol until Ilnnisburg provides
a paid (ire department was taken from
the table, Mr Kunkel, of Hairlsbujg,
moved that it be tefened to the com
mittee on public buildings, now inves
tigating tho (Ire.
lie said In pait:
I trust members of the house will refuse
to concur In this resolution. It should go
to the joint legislative committee now In
vestigating tho lire, which is the proper
committee to consider It, I deslie to bring
mo attention or the house to the real pur
poses of the resolution and Its effect. The
honorable gentleman who Is tho author of
this tesolution took occasion to reflect
upon this elt) and the lire depaitmeut,
which has suved it so long und so well,
It is only fair that the resolution should
(Irst be considered by the Investigating
committee. This resolution piejudlcates
tho whole case. To press It now
and then havo a report from this commit
tee exonerating tho, firemen would be for
tho house to stultify Itself. I am here to
nsk fair play for the fire department which
has saved millions of property and many
humnn lives In Its history of moro than
fifty j ears In Ilnrrlsburgv
Mr. Kunkel spoke eloquently Of tho
gallnnt conduct of the Hi emeu In many
a lmtd fight with the Humes; and said
the depaitment would compare favoi
ably with that of any third class city
In the state, paid or volunteer. Con
tinuing, he said:
Isn't this resolution an entering wedge
to secure tho lemoval of the cnpltol?
Wouldn't It be ns sensible to substitute
for this resolution one that no senate
chamber shall be built In Harrlsburg or
elsewhcie In the state so long as tho sen
atorial districts continue to Send persons
to the senate who do not know smoke
when they breath It oi lire when they
smelt It. (Laughter ) Men who did not
smell smoke when It was all around them
and made no successful effort to ascertain
the origin of It are not In a position to
eiltlclse the conduct of our volunteer de
paitment Adveise comment conies with
bad gnce from them.
Mr. Kunkel said In conclusion:
This seems to be an attempt to use the
legislature for the put pose of prejudicing
the people of Pennsjlvnnla against the
ictentlon of the seat of government In
Hairlsburg, where the capitol has been
foi almost a ceuturj and where, by the
Intelligence of the people and the pdbllc
policy which has pievalled on this ques
tion, It will continue to remain, I trust,
for many veais to come There can be
no offense in referring this resolution to
the committee on Investigation and I move
to so refei it.
This motion was promptly seconded.
Aftei some aigument, Mi Kunkel's mo
tion to lefer the lesolutlon to the com
mittee on investigation was Lairied
oveiwhelnjlngly.
The speakei appointed Messrs W. T.
Marshall, Keyser, McClaln, Hauls,
Ken, and Lennon nienibeis of the com
mittee to investigate the state treasury
on the pait of the house
After a shoit recess the amended res
olution for adjoin nment was letutned
fiom the senate and asreed to. The
house then adiouined until next Wed
nesday evening at 9 o'clock.
WEYLER'S STYLE OF WAR
Some Specimen Instances of the Heroic
Struggle Made by the Chivalrous
Spanish Governor-General.
Havana, Feb 10 The rich sugar
plantation Cat men, in Sabanllla, ptov
Ince of Matanzas, lias been ravaged for
the third time bv a Spanish column
undei oidei of Geneial Weylei. The
troops binned thirty houses on the
plantation and killed two old men, one
of them SO, and the other 76 yeais of
age, a woman and a boy 14 years old.
The manager of the plantation, F. Te
joia, an American citizen, protested
against the unlaw tul attack and the
assassinations. He was Immediately
killed by the Spanish soldiers, after
having been insulted when he declared
that the plantation was the propeity of
an American citizen.
The ow ner of the sugar estate Carmen
Is Alfied Hernandez, who was impris
oned for twenty days at Havana and
then expelled from the Island. He is an
Ameilcan citizen At piesent he has a
claim befoie the state department at
Washington against the Spanlbh gov
ernment for the damages to his ptop
eity lesulting fiom the two previous
raids upon the estate. Since the exist
ence of that claim became known heie
all of Mi. Hernandez's pioperties have
been in danger of destruction. The
mllltaiy authoiltles and the Spanish
guerilllas say that Hernandez, as an
enemy of Spain, deserves the severest
punishment, and all the more because
ho is an Ameilcan. Just before Te
joia was killed a soldier said to him:
"So v,e do with all Amei leans," and
pleiced him with his bajonet.
It Is a fact that, not Including the
paclficos assassinated in the country
by the Spanish columns, and who aie
to be counted by thousands, the Span
ish couits martial condemn to C Mi on
political accusations about twenty per
sons eveiy day, all over the Island
When not the slightest evidence is
found against the victims these teiri
blo tribunals invariably Inlllct upon
the prisoneis a sentence of Imprison
ment at haid labor foi life. Such are
the cases of F. Navauo in Matunzas,
and in Remedios of Pablo Hurtado,
Manuel Bairios, Hennino Lopez, Mateo
Tejeda and Pedro A. Perez. The list
of those ulieady shot in Havana or
sent to Fernando Po or Chafarinas
Islands is enormous. The Spanish
steamers leaving for Euiope are ciowd
ed with thebe hapless victims of Span
ish oppiesslon, and among them aie
many lepresentatlves of the more
learned and distinguished classes.

Camp of Gen. Maximo Gomez, near
Salado, Piovlnceof Santa Clara, Cubi,
Jan. ai, via Jacksonville, l'la., Feb. i -Yesteiday
I arrived at the camp of the
commnndei-lii-chlef and today General
Maximo Gomez, the hoart, head, sou!,
and strength of the lebeillon against
Castlllan power In Cuba, gave in the
most satisfactory nnd lengthy Intet
vlew yet accorded the lepiesentatlve
of any paper. I found the Cuban leader
seated In a hatd, straight-backed chuli
upon a v Ine-coveied veranda. He was
sunounded bv several of his officers
Betancoui t, Menocal, and Lieutenant
Galvo The latter, lately arrived from
San Domingo and a fast friend of the
Gomez family, translated and assisted
in tho Interview which follows. I have
tried to follow the commanders own
vvoids ns much as possible, since he hos
a dliectness nnd teiseness of exoies
slon that leaves no doubt as to his
meaning,
"What do you wish to know?" was
the beginning of tho interview, and
without giving me time to reply, Gomez
continued "You must quote me cor
rectly. I will speak openly on nltnost
any subject ubout which you will nsk
me, but j on must not say more than I
do. Therefote I will lequest that a
copy of the inteivlow be submitted to
Lieutenant G-alvo and to Dr. Stevens
befoie It Is sent nvvay."
Dr. Stevens Is a loung Boston sur
geon who has the entiie confidence of
the insurgent leader, and is the only
foreigner who dines with Gomez iegu
laily. "What Is the attitude of the Cuban
people In relation to reforms to be
granted by Spain?" was the first ques
tion. Geneial Gomez replied: "Spain
does not Intend to grant reforms. She
has no good will tow aid Cuba or the
Cuban people. She never had It has
been alwavs liei foiemost deslie to
make as much out of the colony and
get as much out of It as was possible
for her own good. Be that as it may,
we are asking nothing of the Spanish
government or people. Even were the
pioposals for reform bona fide nothing
could tempt us to treat with them.
"We aie for liberty, not for Spxnish
i eform We are for Cuba, not for Spiln
Wo aie for the people of our own land
who work, not for the horde of 'dlers
and coiruptionlsts that Spain intends
for us so long as she is able to back
them by bayonets.
"I am disgusted with this talk of re
foim. Does Spain think we have for
gotten the lessons of the oast.' Does
she think we will bo ready to tieat
with her loi a portion when the whole
is within out ieach, and when we can
win it with honor'" and then Gouipz
asking ot me paper and pencil, vviote
the following quotation:
"La Llbeitad es uno do los mas pre
clsos dones que los clelos dleion a los
hombres," and continued: "Liberty Is
what we are lighting foi, because, as I
have Just written, it Is one of the moit
glorious gifts that God has bestowed
upon man "
Lieutenant Galvo then read to Genei
al Gomez the words of Mlnistei Estrada
Pnlma legaiding Spanish iefoims con
tained in a newspaper clipping.
"Dr. Palmn is light in what he says,"
said the little general when Galvo
had finished "He understands w hat
we are all fighting for. Di. Palnm
could not have truthfully said nuj thlr.g
else. He knows the Cuban hcait, and
hi knows as well as any one in the
world what a sham and deception Span
ish refoims would be"
REGARDING HOME RULE.
"Would Cuba be willing to accept
home rule in the broadest sense?" I
asked.
"Home rule In its broadest sense In
independence," quickly retoited Gen
eral Gomez "That Is the kind of home
rule ve want. If vou mean would we
accept home mle with a Soanlsh cap
tain general, I would answer must em
phatically, no We want nothing from
Spain but our rights. We do not want
her captain general nor her glorv, If
bhe has any lemalning, nor hei care
"The hatied for Spain is so deeply
rooted In this Island that I am sure that
a very latge majority of our people,
those under arms and those who have
not yet had oppoitunlty to go Into the
field, woultl rather, if they thought the
revolution was going to fall, go abroad
and live among stran:eis than stay in
Cuba under a continuation of the
Spanish power. As for me personally,
I would piefer hell and the domina
tion of the devil than my beloved isl
and with a Spanish captain general "
General Gomez rose and looked about
him as he utteied these vvoids, while
his officers smiled at his emphasis Ills
face, however, undeiwent but slight
change, and in a minute or so he was
again talking. "Why should we be
willing to nccept an) thing from these
people9 Who are they that thev
should ofler to us certain concessions,
when we know, as all men know, that
the concessions ofrered us are the rights
given us by God? Here wo are a peo
ple struggling for what is our due, and
here Is another people, hacked bv the
sympathy of Europe and the mateilal
assistance of the United States, snug
gling Just as hard to keep what Is ouis
from, us, Yes, It is a ciying shame In
this day of light It Is a blot upon thu
page of this, country s history, but with
the help of God the Cuban ar.iny will
sponge It away
"Have ou regarded the United
States as an ally of Suain?"
General Gomez thought a moment
before replying. "That is a pretty
strong question," ho finally answered.
"No, I should hope not. Hull, even
though this Is a delicate question, I
may speak plainly and with candor. It
Is certain that the United States bus
not been our ally. It Is certal;i that
