Gen. Blanco Decides That He
Will Not Release Them.
RAVAGES OF STARVATION
Famine Increasing in HavJfnn and
All Over the Lsluiid Only Remnrty
Found by the Captain-General Ls
a Reduction of the Import Duty
Havana, Nov. 5, via Key Wst, ;Nov. G.
The terms of the decree of Gen. Blanco
regarding the puclflcos will be utterly
unsatisfactory from a humane point of
view. Gen. Blanco has the decree already
framed, on hie desk, and is only awaiting
bomenoyohes that will be given, to it by
Siior Congosto, the new secretary. Seilor
Cungosio, who has been Spanish coubul At
Philadelphia, a" an expert in American
affairs, is expected to write an introduc
tion to the decree in order to impress pub
liooplnionin An erican in favor ottheSpan
ish government. But, in fact, neither the
concentration of pacificos will be stopped,
nor will the awful famine that prevails
among them be relieved.
Gen. Weyler concentrated the pacificos
around the fortified Spanish towns, and
said in hib decrees that zones ot cultiva
tion were to be granted to them foi rais
ing vegetables and keeping their cattle.
Gen. Blanco, Instead of turning the pacificos
loose, according to the formal promise of
Spain, will onlv order on paper, their
zones of cultivation "to be enlarged."
But the paclfico will remain within tho
Spanish lines, under the reach of the fire
ot the Spanish forts and herded like wild
beasts, Just as in the days ot Weyler.
They will not be allowed to return to
their own farms in the country, and in
spite ot the humanitarian sentiments that
will adorn the introduction written by
Senor Congosto, they will practically re
main In thraldom, with all their works and
acts closely watdhed by the Spanish col
umns. Gen. Blanco hub taken this decision
after several consultations with Spaniards
here, who infi rmrd him that to relea-e
the pacificos would De a step in favor jf
Thf ravages of starvation are increas
Ing in li van a and all over the island
The only remedy found by Gen. Blanco is
to suspend the import duty on cattle, but
the decree is not so liberal as has been
cabled ti-America. Accordingto listerias
that Will be printed tomorrow (Suturd ij j
in the Uai-etr., from November 10 to Tan
uary 10 no duties will be imposed, but
after the latter date 30 per tnet-of the
duty now imposed will be collected.
Gen". Blanco expects that two months,
will be long enough to introduce all ihs
cattle u"cdcd In Cuba, and he had told
the several charity associations and philan
thropic persons who called on him to ask
rede l for the starving people, that, though
his wishes arc for the best, he does not
see how he can otherwise alleviate the
evils of the situation. Hunger in Ilavina
is causing a dreadful Increase in crimes.
Personal security in the streets, whtUi
was never great her, does not exist at
all today. Every man here who risks him
self on t'tO streets of the capital after
sUi.sen has to take cart- of his own life.
