rounded by Spaniards and with no
hbpe of escape, Gen. Kruno Zayas, tho
Cuban celeftaia shot himself through
the heart rather than surrender.
Several reports lfiVo been published
in regard to the death of Zayas, but
these accounts were erroneous, accord
ing to Ernestro Castro and Joso Rosel
lo, leading attorneys, of Cardenas.
Cuba, who are now In Key West.
Zayas killed himself a few days be
fore the men left Cuba.
Gen. Zayas and five members of his
staff were lunching in a cafe at Ga
briel, a small village in Havana prov
ince. The proprietor of the cafe was
a Spaniard, and while Zayas and his
friends were lunching he sent his little
daughter to a Spanish camp nearby to
notify tho troops of the presence of
tho Cubans. In a few minutes tbo cafe
was surrounded by Spaniards, who de
manded tho surrender of Zayas and
his friends. The Cubans refused and a
fight to the death followed.
In a short time the flvo members of
Zayas' staff wcro dead and tho general
himself badly wounded, and had only
two bullets left in his revolver. Again
tho Spaniards demanded his surrender.
Zayas' reply was a bullet that pierced
tho heart of a lieutenant. The
Spaniards seemed resolved to capturo
Zayas alive and rushed on him.
As they advanced, Zayas placed his re
volver against his breast and fired the
last bullet through his heart. Al
though outnumbered 10 to 1, Zayas and
his comrades sold their lives dearly.
Sixteen of tho Spaniards were killed
outright and 11 wounded.

San Fiiancisco, Aug. 11. Moil ad

which has broken out in the center of
the island of Formosa. Hoonim, the
camphor center, was attacked. It is

feared that D. D. Ollia, an European,
has fallen a victim. The town is sup
posed to have been sacked and tile loss
to foreigners will be considerable. This
state of affairs is due to the cruelties

Silver Patriots In 1873.
The ndocates of the cheap silver
standard pretend that the white metal
is "patriotic," wiiile gold is disloyal.
One-half of the arguments for 50-cent
dollars consists of appeals to patriotism
for otes hi fuVbr of the "American
money" and against the "traitor gold"
of England. ,
Tn the. happy days before 1573 tho
bullion alue of the metal in n silver
dollar was worth on tin average about
$1.03. Did the noble-hearted, patriotic
silver miners rush to pour then- prod-,
nets into our mints so that, tho coun
try would havo plenty of money? Not
by a great deal. They were the kind
of patriots who shipped their siher oft
to Franco as fast as they could send it
in order to get a little higher price for
it. They knew at that time metallic
money was scarce iu the United States,
but thej didn't caro for that. They
wanted the highest prico for siher bul
lion, nnd they therefore sold it in tho
dearest market. Xoobdy blames them
for doing so. Hut now that the price
abroad has gone down, and they want
Uncle Sam to gie them more for their
bullion than its market value, they talk
of "patriot'sm" ami pretend that they
wish to get their siher made into dol
lars in older to benefit the country.
Nice kind of patriots they nre men who
will tend their silver away when it is
badly needed nnd try to urlond it on
the government when it is cheap and
