Nnvv Yonic, July 20. A Herald spe
cial from Key West, Flo., says'.
The Spaniards, under Gen. Suarez
Inclan, havo sustained a crushing de
feat at tho hands of the insurgents un
der Antonio Maceo, according to ad
vices received by tho Cuban revolution
ary leaders in this city. Not only wub
Inclan's column defeated with heavy
loss, but tho Cuban leaders aro In
formed that It is currently re
ported in Havana that tho Span
ish general himself was cap
tured and is now held as a
prisoner by Maceo. Tho battle is said
to havo occurred on July 15, near Ma
,ceo's stronghold in tho province of
I'lnar del Bio. For tho last two weeks
Itho insurgents have been very aggrcs
'slve, and small parties have repeatedly
attacked tho trocha, causing tho Span
iards much annoyance. Gen. Inclan
was ordered to drive back these de
tached bands of insurgents and for
this purpose took with him 2,000 men.
Maceo seems to have expected such a
movement and arranged to ambush tho
Spaniards. Tho Spaniards followed
tho insurgent skirmishers Incautlonsly
and fell Into tho ambush. Then the
Cubans opened fire from all sides,
which threw tho Spaniards into con
fusion. While tho Spaniards wero thus
disordered the Cubans charged, com
pletely routing their foes. Gen.
Inclan made a desperate eiT6rt to
rally his ' demoralized forces, but
was surrounded by the Cubans and
compelled to surrender. "It is .reported
in Havana, according to tho revolu
tionists here, that the Spaniards were
pursued almost to tho trocha, and lost
more than 300 men killed and wound
ed. There wore 14 officers among tho
killed. Cubans here also say Maceo
will hold Inclan as a hostage to savo'
the lives of prominent insurgent of
ficers who havo been captured by tho
Wont (or Tflouaande.

THE KIANGYIN RIOTG.
China, Must Pay nn Indemnity, nnd tho
Leader Must Ho Punished for Outrages
Committed on American Cltlrcns.
Nkw YoitK, July 80. The Herald's
special from Washington says:
Not only must China pay an indem
nity for outrages committed upon Amer
ican missionaries in China, but tho
United States will Insist that ndequato
punishment be meted out tb thoso con
cerned in tho riots. This i tho posi
tion Secretary Olncy has assumed In
connection with tho case of outrages
committed on tho American mission

the missions wore sacked and the' mis
Tho report of Lieut. Walter McLean,
of the steamer Boston, who was de
tailed ti the request of the state de
partment to make a speejal investiga
tion, has been received by Secretary
Olnoy. Tho roport docs not bear
out some sensational statements orig
inally made about the Kiang Yin riots,
nor does it substantiate all the
elaims made by tho missionaries for
pecuniary losses. It shows, however,
that they were roughly treated, being
compelled to fleo for their lives. Their
buildings wero sacked, somo of them
destroyed,' and their personal effects
stolen, or injured. No one, however,
suffered any severe 'personal in
jury. Lieut. McLean estimates tho
total loss of tho property at
about S10.000, which is considerably less
than tho losses as first reported. He
fixes the responsibility upon tho offi
cials in chargo of tho province in which
the riots occurred. The Chinese gov
ernment made an investigation and, as
a result, will pay all damages. It has
not, however, according to the report,
punished tho principal offenders and
tho officials who neglected to give
proper protection to tho missionaries.
Tho state department will insist that
(his be done.

hao not wholly given up the fight.

Iowa, where notwithstanding Gen.
Weaver's position, the delegation is dl
videdupon the question of endorsing

in the nature of a discovery, for it had

After carefully considering thesitu

Senntnr Joncq, of Arkansus, nt
Amonfir tho I'opullfit Uelepntea
St. Louis, July 20. Although the
ltryan propoganda is receiving the bun
port of many of tho populist leaders,
the real work of advaneinirits inteiests
has been entrusted to Senator Jonets,
of Arkansas, tho chairman of the na
tional democratic committee. It must
be said for Jones that ho is engineer
ing the Bryan boom skillfully, and it is
nono the less skillful because the
Arkansas senator chooses to lemain
quietly in tho background. He lias his
headquarters at tho Planter's hotel,
whero lje has been receiving certain of
the more prominent populists who de
siro Iirynn's nomiuaton by their con
vention. Tho proposition which Jones
advances is this: In return for populist
and silver republican support, ono
member of each party w ill be placed on
the democratic national executive com
mittee. In states where the populists
greatly outnumber the democrats, the
populists aro to control tho nominations
for congress and tho principal state of
fices. In other stutes where the
Btrength of the two parties is more uni
form, a satisfactory arrangement will
be mado with respect to the state and
congressional tickets, tho purpose in
each case being to secure tho election
of free bllver representatlveb to the
The scheme finds great favor with
such qf the' populists as Jones has con
sulted, tho argument of the latter be
ing that if Bryan is not nominated
half of tho populists, in the west es
pecially, will vote for him and that the
effect of this will bo to disrupt the
It may hi stated in this connec
tion that Jones insists strenuously
that not only shall Bryan be noml
ated, but Sevvall as well. At Sunday
night's conference he Insisted that theso
conditions should be rigidly adhered to
and ho flatly .refused to entertain any
proposition that looked only to the
nomination of ltryan and tho repudiai
tion of the democratic nominee for the
second placo on tho ticket.
