H~svANa, Nov. 1.-Captain General
Weyler, just prio to his enbarkatiol
for ;-ain. :dre'ssed the assemb:ed
crowds gath?ered in his honor. In the
course of his acknowledgements of their
"sy:nnateti' re:~erences to his ap
proaning withdrawal," he declared
that he had always done his duty in
accordance with his souse of patriotism,
and that he would leave Cuba "with a
serene conscience." He had never cared,
he said, for the criticisms of sym:
thizers with the rebellion, because he
always felt assured of the kindness and
wisdom of his policy.
So far as the order of concentration
was concerned, an order which had
been the subject of so much censure by
some, it was requested by all Spaniards
in Cuba from the very outset. He did
not decide to put it into force immeal
ately, favoring to await a more favor
able opportunity, and the results of the
concentration policy, once put into
force, "had been very favorable to the
"My release from my post and its re
sponsibilities." he said. "did not sur
prise me. I had expected it from the
death of Senor Canovas, not believing
that any political leader would be strong
enough to sustain me when the United
States and the rebels were together
constantly demanding that Spain should
come to a settlement.
"I count it an honor to have been
identified with the local Spanish party.
But the policy which I have followed
was not adopted in obedience to any
political party, but for what it repre
sented in behalf of my country. As for
the future I offer myself, and shall al
ways hold myself in readiness to serve
the party aiming to retain Cuba for
Although General Weyler remains in
command until the arrival of General
Blanco. he has delivered the office of
the general government of the island to
Admiral Nevarro, and the military
offices to General Jiminez Castellanos.
General Weyler has issued the fol
lowing proclamation to the inhabitants
of the island:
"More accustomed to the inclemency
of the camp than the enervating pleas
ures of the parlor, I am rude and con
cise. You all know the state of affairs
when I arrived and you are convinced
that peace- was shortly established in
the island up to the Juoaro trocha.
'The sugar planters are preparing for
grinding. The roads are in good condi
tion. To reach this stage, I have been
compelled to resort to rigorous meas
ures, but have always afforded a pardon
in the name of generous Spain to her
unnatural sons. I believe the rebellion
is so reduced as to guarantee Spanish
sovereignty; and only by artful meas
ures, and by a complicity unworthy of
Spaniards, will the enemies of Spain be
able to imperil it."
