Hills For Safety - Manuel Angulo of
New York Will Hte Ofrered a Portfolio
In the Autonomy Cabinet.
HAvANA, Deo. 13.-It is of;icially an
anounced that the Spanish for.ces under
the command of General Pando. in the
province of Puerto Principe. have been
pushing insurgent leader General Max.
imo Gomez so closely that he wa
obliged, with about 200 men of his es
cort. to seek refuge in the woods and
mountains of Las Delicias.
The commissioners sent by G, neral
Pando to different parts of the island,
with instructions to negotiate with the
insurgents for their acceptance of the
autonomous form of government pro
posed by Spain. have not returne. i 1
single case, which seems to coniirm th~t
reports that some of them have boe:
hanged by the insurgents and otiher
have elected to remain with the ene:.
It is reported that Juan Deign:o'. tri
insurgent leader, has rhan ed tihe twi
commissioners who were sent to h:m
with peace propositions.
A dispatch recently received he:z
from Madrid says that the auto::c:ny
cabinet for Cuba will not be formed un
til the Reformists and Autonomirs
unite in one party, and it is added that
Reformist deputy, Ambiard. who is now
at Madrid, will on his arrival in New
York offer to Manuel Rafael Arnuio. n
member of the Cuban revolutionary
junta, a portfolio in the new autonomy
cabient,- in order to induce him to re
turn to Cuba.
The plans of the insurgents to strike
a blow near the city have been checked,
according to the official account, but
the concentration of their forces is such
as to make it unlikely that the insur
gent band will surrender, as the Span
ish authorities have been hoping.
The business concerns of the city are
much discouraged by the actual situa
tion. They do not now look forward tc
a speedy end of the revolution. All say
they have abandoned the hope that the
insurgents will surrender or accept tne
conditions of autonomy.
