"Within the past 4S hours, however,
President Cleveland is said to have
learned that Spain, desparing of a suc
cessful termination of the war. had
offered to sell Cuba to Great Britain.
"Rumors to this effect were circu
lated in the east night before last and
spread like wildfire over the country.
The rumors seemed to be confirnied by
dispatches from Florida. The governors
of the southern states, according to
these advices, have been requested by
the war department to prepare the state
troops for immediate service. Troops
are already beginning to move in Flor
ida. The belief is held in some quarters
that the flying squadron of Great Brit
ain is destined for service in American
waters. If this is so, war will result.
Uncle Sam Would Object.
"The cession of Cuba to Great Britain
would be resisted by the United States
to the last.
"Official information from the White
House is lacking, but it is evident that
serious complications are at hand.
"Senor Palma, head of the Cuban
party in the United States, wires from
Washington: 'Our case is complete.
The president and congress will recog
nize the insurgent cause.'
"Senor Palma adds that it is not neces
sary that tho insurgents should hold a
port, but that, as a matter of fact, Gen
eral Gomez has taken half a dozen ports
in the past week, leaving the Spanish
army penned up in Havana.
"The president, it is said, will issue a
proclamation immediately. Authorities
agree that the executive and not con
greais should take the initiative. Con
gress will support the president heartily.
Cubans May Be Recognized.
"President Cleveland has hesitated to
tako so important a step while the
oficial head of the revolution in this
country is enjoying the protection of
American citizenship Secretary Olney
has not felt so m uch embarrassment from
these causes. He has been for some
time in favor of immediate recognition
and has been urging the president on,
but Mr. Cleveland, naturaily cautious,
has moved with great deliberation.
Something has transpired within the
past day- or two, however, to change his
noicy, if Washington advices are accu
r'ate. It is rumored in Washington that
Spain has offered to sell Cuba to Great
Britain, and that negotiations for the
cession of the island to the British
crown are now pending. Spain. it is
said has abandoned all hope hope of
quelling the insurrection.
Would Not Mean Independence.
"A report has it that the president
may go beyond the original proposition
andrecognize the independence of Cuba.
This, however, may be taken with a
large grain of salt. There is a distinc
tion between independence and bellig
"Belligerency can be recognized when
insurgents have established themselves
on a basis of apparent permanency by
having military establishments able to
cope with the armies of the parent
country and have established a form of
government. Independence, on the
other hand, according to the principles
and invariable practice of the United
States, is recognized 'only when the
legal govei-nment of another nation, by
its establishment in the actual exercise
of political power, is supposed to have
received the express or implied assent
of the people.'
American Troops Would Be Landed.
'-The president, according to this ver
sion of the story, learned of the pro
pos ed deal, and after a conference with
Senor Palma determined to nip it in the
bud by recognizing a state of war in
Cuba and enforcing belligerent rights
as laid down in international law. The
hasty orders for troops, if they really
have been given, can mean but one
thing, to wit: That the United States
will resist any attempt on the part of
Spain to emerge from the war by ceding
Cuba to Great Britain or any other Eu
"If the crisis is as acute as it would
seem to be from the reports in circula
tion, Admiral Bunco will be instructed
to leave Hampton Roads on short notice
with an expedition to Cuba. American
interests on the island would afford
ground for the landin': of troops in the
the event of an megnc.
Cause of Campof' Recall.
MADRU, Jan. 21.-The Conservative
organs at Havana protest against the
assertion of Marshal Campos that he is
the victim of political intrigue. They
inist that his recall is due to his failure
as a general and not to political pressure.
Reiforcements of 16 battalions of
troops, under Generals Barges and
Aumada, will be sent t6 Cuba shortly.
