Ivonet has seized on almost Improjr
nable position In the hills and believes
that ho cannot be dislodged without
great slaughter. Mb position la one
from which the Spanish soldiers often
tried futllely to drive Cubans during the
Kuftrrllla warfare when Cuba was fight
ing for her freedom.
About half of Ivonet's soldiers are
well armed. Tho balance lack guns, al
though many of them are armed with
revolvers and machots.
The rebels gave the first Intimation
of weakness today when word was re
ceived from Ivonet that his men would
lay flown their arms If guaranteed that
tho Morua law, prohibiting tho forma
tion of a negro political party, were an
nulled, and amnesty promised. At the
same time Ivonet declared that PresI-

Prevails in Cuba,
NEW YORK, May 28. The following
dispatch has been received from Presi
dent Gomez of Cuba:
"With the exception of nine municipal
districts In Ortente province. In which
scattered bands of negroes are still ma
rauding, abaoluto tranquillity prevails
throughout the ropubllc. Railroads run
regularly, therq Is no Interruption In the
telegraph nor telephone services, and
sugar mills are grinding. In several
places nothing but the natural alarm
remains. I have not employed any ex
traordinary measures. I have simply
acted with energy and promptness to
such an extent that I doubt that the
action taken by me can be equaled.
"Since the present movement began,
six days ago, I have been able to limit
It to a part of Oriente province, and
I have sent to that locality over 3,000
men of the regular army, and I am
still sending additional forces. I have
sent arms and ammunition to the dif
ferent mayors, and have protected the
towns and property to such an extent
that depredations have only been com
mitted in Isolated stores In Oriente.

"Public Bplrlt is identified with my
purpose so much that I could easily or
ganize a large body of volunteers com
posed of veterans and civilians. Offers
of gratuitous service are pouring in
from all parts of the country. One
which I highly appreciated came from
the United States, In which fiOO cowboys
volunteered their very valuable services
to fight the negroes In arms. I have
been compelled to refuso this kind of
fer because with the regular force In

"The area of Cuba Is 118,000 kilometers;
of that number but a small zone of
7.000 kilometers Is occupied by scattered
bands of negroes, who are marauding
in the mountains and woods where the
troops are In hot pursuit.
False News Reported.
"False and alarming news has been
published from here. Insignificant
'events have been magnified for political
and speculative purposes. If you, will
send an emissary who Is honest and
knows his business to travel throughout
the Island he will find that, with the
exception of the mountainous zone,
where negroes In arms are to be found,
there is nothing but perfect order,
work, peace, and a decided wish to end
this shameful revolt without the aid of
foreign co-operation, and you may rest
assured that we will crush this revolu
tonary movement because guerrilla
warfaie lasts as long as a country aids
it, but when, as in the present case,
public opinion Is unanimously against
puch a movement, there It necessarily

resume his duties today.
The shootlns came as the result of
a riot which was participated In by
about six colored men, who are bo
llnverl n hnvn pome from Washing
ton. Shortly after 10 o'clock. Bell
heard the mport of a revolver In the
barroom, and entering, placed Black
burn under arrest. As he took hold
of his arm, the man wheeled, and
drawing the weapon from his pocket,
fired twice Henry Cheshire, who
came to Bell's rescue, was stabbed
In the neck by one of the men. Tho
wound Is not serious.
Two other men, John Shepherd and
Hudson Hansborough, received slight
wounds from bullets. None of the
rioters are known except Blackburn
and William Johnson, and the Wash
ington authorities havo been re
quested to apprehend them.

Honor la At Stake.
"The honor of the natives of Oriente
province and of all Cubans In fact, and
tho prestige of the government are at
stake. At present the government has
over 4,000 soldiers of regular army, and
about the same number of volunteer?
composed of veterans and civilians. No
foreign soldiers could be substituted for
our own in the present case. The native
soldiers are brae, are thoroughly ac
quainted with the country, and aro
greatly interested in preserving the peace
of tho republic.
"It were generous to offer help to the
Cuban government If such help were
needed, but it Is not fair to Impose It
unnecessarily, when it Is evident that
the Cubans themselves are more than
able to cope with the situation."

HAVANA, May 28. Reports from

Deputy Marshals to
Lose "Team Hire" Money
A general warning was given today
by the Comptroller of the Treasury, to
United States deputy marshals througr
out the United States In the matter of
team hire at Government expense.
It has been the policy of deputies to
use their own teams and charge the
Government $3 per day for them. The
Comptroller says that while this prac
tice may be and In some cases Is al
right, and that while the men are citi
zens of Integrity and honor, still It is
a temptation to use the teams moro
and charge the Government, If they
are conveniently .iiabled at homo, and
the ethics of the proposition are not
clean cut. The Comptroller says that
it would be well for these deputies to
use livery rigs, and present vouchers.
