SPAIN'S ONLY CHANCE

WILLING TO PAY AN INDEMNITY.
Spain Must Evacuate the Island at Onco II'

ings of the Cubans -Interviews With
Leading Cubans In This Country on tho
New York, Oct. 4. Tho Herald
prints a number of interviews with
leading Cubans here on tho situation in
the island. The Cubans all declare
that autonomy for the islands is out of
tho question, but most of them are in
favor of paying Spain a reasonable in
demnity providing she evacuates the
island at once.
T. Estrada Palma, representative of
the Cuban provisional government,
said : "To the Cuban patriots it makes
little difference whether a Liberal or
Conservative ministry directs affairs in
Spain. A change in government in
Spain does not not alter tho case of tho
Cubans. They aro now moro firmly de
termined than over to push the fight
until tho absolute independence of Cuba
is acknowledged. I believe tho Cubans
are willing to pay a reasonable indem
nity to Spain provided she withdraw
her troops from Cuba before the island
is completely ruined."
Enrique J. do Varona said : "I be
lieve autonomy would complicate,
rather than solve the Cuban situation.
Absolute independence is the aspiration
of the immense majority of the Cuban
peoplo. Cuba needs a definite political
regime. Spanish autonomy would not
give it to tho island. The only practi
cal solution of the Cuban problem is ab
Dr. Henry Lincoln de Zayas says :
"The Cubans aro, and have always been
ready to treat with Spain with a view
to a cession of hostilities, provided the
first condition bo that Spain shall ac

Colonel F. Lopez de Qncralta, for
merly of the United States army, and
a veteran of tho ten years' war in Cuba,
said : "I would like to seo Cuba freed by
force of arms. But to avoid further
shedding of blood of innocent people, I

E. Tmjillo. editor of El Porvenir, said :

Regarding tho plan for tho purchase
of Cuba from the Spanish government
General Emelio Nunez, who for tho
past 10 days has been in consultation
with tho junta leaders in New York,
said: "I can not sue how the plaus for
tho freedom of Cuba on tho basis of a
guarantee to Spain bvthe United States
of an indemuityof OO.COO.OOO in cash

except that tho amount is greatly in ex
cess of true values of relics left by Wey

back up tho proposition, because it
would have tho revenue of Cuba to
guaranteo reimbursement and would
gain immediate improvements of its
trado relations. I believe that, stern as
our resolution is never to lay down our
arms to Spain, the majority of our
