Insurgents to Accept Nothing
Short of Independence.
THE PEACE PL. FALL TEROUGH
Cubans Refuse to Accept Offers Made
Them by the span:h General, and the
War Will Now Continue-Rebels expect
the Comong se kion of Congress to Take
Some Action Looking to Their lielief.
HVANvo, via K:F WEST, NOV. 22.
General Pando. as recently cabled by
the Associated Press, started by train
from this city on Saturday last in order,
according to ofilcial announcement, tc
take charge of the campaign against the
,insurgents. Ha was accompanied by
his full stall and was escorted by a com
pany of artillery. But it is stated on
very good authority that General Pandc
has been commissioned by Marshal
Bianco, the captain general. to ente:
into communication with the ins urgent
leaders with the view of arranging for
This statement is based on accurate
knowledge oF all the facts in the case.
General Pando did not leave this city
until he had taken steps calcu:atod to
further the object w hh irshal

who. has been inlprisone.i on the Is e o:
Pnes for some time pisr. :r is a
leged, acting as a spy for the insuir eurs
and bringing abcn: a disaster of tue
Spanish troops as Cacao, province of
Santiago de Cuba.
General Pando :urnished C.ballero,
who is the godfather of Rabi, looked
upon as being the backbone of the in
surgent movement in the province of
Santiago de Cuba, with a considerable
sum of money and caused him to be
landed at Manzanillo, province of San
tiago de Cuba, where a good horse was
placed at his disposal. General Pando's
peace emissary was also furnished offi
cial documents empowering him to act
for the Spanish commander, and from
Manzanilio Caballero made his way se
cretly to the Jiguani hills, where Gen
eral Rabi has his headquarters.
Big Sums of Mloney Offered.
General Pando instructed Caballero
to offer General Rabi a high rank in the
Spanish army and a large sum of money
to be distributed among the other insur
gent leaders of that part of Cuba and
in addition a large amount of money
for himself, in the event of his succeeti
ing in arranging terms of peace. Be
sides this. Caballero was instructed to
inform the insurgent leaders that the
Spanish authorities undertook to hon
estiv establish the new autonomist re
gime if the leaders of the insurgents
would accept the propositions made
Although Caballero has not returned
from Santiago de Cuba, confidential ad
vices which have reached the Spanish
officials here seem to indicate that Ca
ballero has so far been unsuccessful It
is understood that General Rabi has re
plied that he believes a successful end
ing of the war in favor of the insurgents
is anroaching; that the Cubans. with
the aid of the United States, will gainI
their independene, and that, therefore,
he prefers to continue fighting tho
Spaniards until the final victory is won.
Caballero also negotiated with Gen
eral Duvalen, the French leader of the
insurgents. There seemis to be no inti
mation as to the result of the Cabailero's
negotiation with General Duvalen, a>
though it may be judged fromn the atti
rude assumed by General Rabi that the
peaice negotiations are likely t a il flat
in Santiago de Cuba.
More Irons in the Fire.
General Pando, meanwhile, acting in
. conjunction with Marshal Blanco. has
put other irons in the fire in the hope of
prevailing upon the insurgents to come
t o terms. He has been and is still in
negotiation with three leaders of the
Cuban revolution and has been endeav
oring to mnduce-them to go to different
distant camps, there to use their infln
ence to bring about peace, on the prom
ise of Cuba being accorded a really au
tonomous form of government. These
three men were also offered money for
themselves and were to have been fur-F
nished with large sums of money so dis
tribute among their friends. But is is
understood they have refused to become
agents of General Pando, ai~eging as
their excuses that they have no infli
ence with tl insurgent leaders of the
principal rebel territories and that they
would be risking their lives should they;
venture into the insurgent camp.
In some quarters it is believed that
the reluctance to accept the overtures
of General Pando is due to the fact thati
the insurgents are anticipating so:ne
strong steps in their favor when the
United States congress meets. It is
generally admitted that General Pamio
is somewhat mortified with tile non:
success of his plans up to the present.
CUBANS NEAR THE CAPITAL:
Insurgents Attack Hivan~a Outposts, but
Are Diren Back.
NEW YORK, No". 22.-A palrty of in
surgents attacked the Spanish outposts
of Havana and a sharp engagement fol
lowed, says the Havana correspondent
of The Herald. The sounds of firing
caused great excitement in Havana, as
is is known that large rebel forces are
quartered near the city. Details of the
engagement are not known, but it is
said that the insurgents destroyed much
property before sufficient Spanish forces
were concentrated to drive them away.
The loss in killed or wounded is not
known, as officials refuse to give out
any information beyond the bare state
meat that a party of six insurgents just
outside of Carabanas were driven away.
The rebels, it is officially reported, rook
two horses and one rifle which they had
