It is quite evident that Gen. Cam?
pos, the commander of the Spanish
forces in Cubs, does not love that class
of newspaper men known as reporters
over much. He has announced that
all reporters who visit the msurgeuts
will be shot when they retnru to the
Spanish line*. It is not probable,
however, that any reportora will bo
?hot, nor is it believed that the order
was issued for any purpose other than
to prevent them from going within the
insurgents' lines and then making
known to the world how well they are
really prospering. These reporter fel?
lows are great people in their way, and
