Havana, Nov. 16, via Kej West, Nov.
17. The case of Gen. Hasan, already re
ported, is not the only instance of dis
agreement between Gen. lilauco ami tlie
generals or his staff. It leaked out to
day, Iu spite of the watchful press censor
ship, and the -secretive policy observed iii
the palace or the captain general, that
Gens. Pantio and Gonzalez Pandora, the
two most Iinportunt men in the govern
ment, arter Blanco, are al&o against him.
The same thing happened to .Martinez
Campos and to Weyler. The Spanish mil
itary men are always Jealous of one another,
and their discoids and quanels are not an
unimportant cause of many triumphs of the
insurgents. But now the question is not,
as in the cases of Martinez Campos and
Weyler, as to who should beat (he responsi
bility of defeat, but what plan of campaign
Is best. Blanco has a policy or his oau.
Pa ado. as commander of the staff, has
a policy also. Pandora, second in com
mand, has asked Blanco for full authority
to carrv out hi own Ideas. Without
consulting the captain general as to in
plan of campaign, he started today against
the insurgents in the province or Havana.
Four Cuban insurgents who were accus
tomed tn approach the city at night to
communicate will, friends were betrayed
by a spy. An ambush of :i00 Spanish sol
diers was prepared for them, and they
fell into it and were captured- But, In
stead lit taking them as prisoners to the
city, they were kept in the outskirts
awaiting orders from Havana. Tlie orders
came, from Pando to kill them, and they
were murdered with machetes.
It is said here that Blanco was not in
formed by Pando of the communication from
Santa Clara, while others declare that he
was", but had not the courage to oppose
the sanguinary general on his staff. The
butchering iu Cuban hospitals are also
ascribed to Gen. Pando's orders.
A strong movement lit favor of the
annexation of Cuba to the L'nited States
Is in progress here, and curious to say
among important Spanish residents. The
are tired of the war, hopeleos of Spain and
at the same time appreheusive of re

piopcrty They wish to keep their capl

point of view annexation suits them very

Of. DR. HOUGHTON'S DEATH
Rector of "The Little Church
Around the Corner."
FIRM FRIEND OF ALL ACTORS

t,he War How a Simple Fiiueuil
Made Him Famous the World Ovo."
Fuueruls of Famous Actors Con
ducted bj' Him.
New York, Nov. 17.-Thu Rev. Dr.
George II, Houghton, for many yean the
rector of the Church of the Trausfigura
uon, or, as it was more familiarly kuo'vu,
the "Little Church Around the Corner."
died at ids home in East Twenty-ninth
street, early this evening, arter an Illness
of three hours. Dr. Houghton was pro&eiit
at tlio services of holy communion at the
church tills morning. Thla evening lie
was stricken with acute congestion of
the lungs and died three hours later.
By the death or Mr. Hough tonthe ministry
of New York loses its most picturesque
rigure. Ho was born iu Deerfleld, .M.-tSd-,
seventy-four years ago, and he grew from
young manhood to old age xu the shadow
of the vine-clad wall of the church he
lcimrted in East Twenty-ninth street.
Dr. Houghton, whe'i the war broke -ut,
acted without compensation as the chap
latt of the first military hospital in the
city. During the draft riots m.m
liugroes sought ills protection, which was
generously arrorded, in spite of repeated
threats of personal violence. Directly
aftev tlie close of the war an EugHMi
woman, whohadbeea an actress ami wilter
for the press, died,, and she was buried
from the Church of the Transfiguration
The rimeral services were Conducted by
Dr. Ho'ightou, and thereafter many actors
became hl friends. But it was several
years later that tlie Incident happenel
which gave the church if widest repulaUo'i
and it best know n name.
On December 20, 1870, George Hol'and,
the actor, died. He wasth? fataer of E. M.
and Joseph Holland, and In his day was
well known among the prominent Mage
people. The arrangements for his funeral
were intrusted to Joseph Jefferson, and
when ho and several others, called on the
Eev. Dr. SnUne, then the pastor of a fash
ionablp congregation, they met with a
Dr. Snbi.p refused to conduct tbe service,
and when asked whr would be lively to
do it- rrplied: "There is a little ehui-h
arcutid the corner where they Jo such
things.' This incldeut Avas widely pub
lished and commented upon, and the nam',
the little church around the corner, has
stuck to Dr Houghton's ohurtii ever sinee.
After ihe funeral of Mr. Holland, muay
actors and writers were buried from the
Church of the Transfiguration, among
them being Edwin Booth, Lester Wallnck,
Dion Coue'cault, aud II. J. Montague.
Many marriages of. stage people have
also occurred there. Ia spite of the foud
iieas of the drumatic profession for the
little church, Dr Houghton hail never been
In a theater but once during his long life,
and thou he was only fifteen years old.
The grief or hi1, mother wus so great that
lie never cared to repzat the experiment.
Tbe principle upon which the church was
organized was expressed as follows by
Houghton, in his forty-fifth anniversary
sermou, which he preached in 1893:
"As the knowledge or wlrat the Church
or the Trurisriguration was intended to
be and was in the personal ministry or
mercy and blessing, that no sin, ne degrad
ation, no sickness, no possible peril was
or could be a barrier to the ministry. The
gambling houses, the house or ill-repute,
thu prison house, were opened to it."
Dr. Houghton was a strong, rugged
looking old man with kindly eyes, ami
beard as white as snow .
