brave were compelled to retreat
each time. During tho engagement
tho Spanish lost Lieut. Albcrgoli, three
majors, two captains, several lieuten
antsand more than 200 soldiers were
killed or wounded.
Seeing that it was useless to continue
tho attack, CoL Teperizo retreated to
ward Jnruco, constantly harassed by
patriot troops detached for that pur
pose. Capt Feuntcs saw Gen. Quinlln Ban

tho Artemisa troch from Plnar del Rio
-o Havana. On crossing it Pandoras'

Indianapolis, tnd., Sept l.Tho ho-,
tel corridors began to fill up Monday'
evening, and tho town took on an ante
convention look. At tho Dcnison, the
Grand and tho Dates, the delegates
wero most numerous. Among the
arrivals at tho Dcnison were
Jos. Outhwaitb, of Columbus, O.,
a member of tho executive committee;
W. B. Haldeman. of Louisville; Gov.
Thomas J. Jones, of Alabama. Ten
delegates from Iowa arrived Monday
evening. They favor' tho nomination
of Col. Watterson. Mr. Outhwalte, of
tho executive committee, said his pre
ference is Watterson for first place and
Gen. Bragg for second place on the
The executive committee met Monday
evening, but took no action, except to
nlloi tho press scats and arrange some
minor details for tho convention. Sev
eral drafts and suggested planks for
tho platform have b&en received
by tho committee; but they
will be turned over to tho
committee on resolutions to be utilized
or not, as that committee sees fit The
suggestion has been made that the
platform be confined to tho money
Issue alone, but thero Is little doubt
that it will bo made to cover the whole
political situation. Its chief feature
will bo a refutation of the free silver
plank of tho Chicago platform, and a
strong declaration for sound money
and the preservation of the gold stand
ard A reply will also be made to the
attitudes of tho Chicago convention on
the constitutional powers of tho su
premo court and the executive. Its
tariff plank will, it is said, be modeled
after that of tho democratic platform
The Kentucky delegation will arrive
Tuesday. Members of the delegation
are in a somowhat embarrassing posi
tion. When the Kentucky state con
vention was held about ten days ago,
the only ticket talked about was Bragg
and Buckncr and the convention adop
ted an enthusiastic resolution indors
ing Gen. Buckncr for vice-president
Tho delegates, therefore, will come to
the national convention pledged to
Buckner. They are all good
friends of Henry Watterson, and
since his boom has assumed such largo
proportions they are said to be dis
posed to keep quicjt and let matters
take their course. Tho resolution of
tho state convention, howover, stops
them from presenting Watterson, and
his name will therefore have to bo
brought before tho convention from
another state. Tho Illinois delegation,
it is understood, stands ready to pre
sent Watterson's name and make a
strong effort to nominate him.
Strangely enough tho Wisconsin del
egation finds itself in a somewhat sim
ilar predicament It will come here
instructed for Bragg, nnd find a
healthy boom on tho ground for Sena
tor Vilas. In this case, however, Sen
ator Vilas himself will bo with tho del
egation, and his friends say that ho
will probably head off his boom In
short order if it lies within his power.
The Minnesota delegation arrived
Monday evening. It is understood that
they will present for tho vice presi
dency tho name of Mr. D. W. Lawler,
tho chairman of tho Minnesota delega
tion at the Chicago convention and tho
democratic national committeeman
from that state, whose sound money
vlows as expressed at Chicago excited
so much antagonism among tho silver
men. Mr. Lavlcr was tho democratic
nominee for governor of Minnesota in
1893, and eame very near election.
Tho Cleveland boom received a de
cided impetus Monday night when Mr.
Hugh Wallace, of Washington, a dele
gate to tho convention, reported here.
Ho said that what the convention
should, and in his opinion would do,
was to nominate "Mr. Cleveland.
"Thero are many reasons," continued
tho Pacific coast politician, for this
course. The convention should be
looking for a vote-getter, and beyond
question Mr. Clovcland is 500,000 votes
stronger than an3 man who can be
named. It would be wise politics
too. It would rellovo tho con
vention of the charge now made
against it of being bolters. Mr.
Cleveland has been three times nomin
ated for president by the democratic
party, and twice elected, and is tho
head of tho democratic organization of
tho country. With Mr. Cleveland as
tho candidate, this convention would
go before, the country 'as "the1 regular
performance, with Bryan as u bide
show. As it is, Bryan Is tho malu
show, and the nominee of this conven
tion, if ho bo other than Mr. Cleveland,
will be the sldo,show,
Indianapolis', Ind., Sept l.Tho
early morning trains brought many
delegates. Gen. Bragg and Senator
Vilas of Wisconsin were among tho
first arrivals and took up quarters at
tho same hotel. Mr. John P. Irish for
merly of tho bureau of engraving and
printing at tho national capital, now a
resident of California, came on as ad
vanco courier of tho California delega
tion, reporting that the membors from
the sothern part of tho state wero shut
off by a washout and would not be able
to reach Indianapolis.
The' decorations of Tomlinson hall,
whero tho convention will meet, have
heen completed and aro very effective
It is the general opinion that the hall
will corarmre favorably with thoso ol
tho previous conventions, although It
makes no great pretensions as tc
capacity. The Interior tint of tho
walls makes an excellent foil for tho
gold tablet pillars that reach tho cell
ing from between the doors of tho gal
leries. On each plllnr has been placed
the name of a state, surrounded by c
wreath ot gold. As there aro not as
many pillars as there are states, other
of tho names aro displayed on the bal
conies. There nro 21 groups of flags
on the facings of both galleries, and
each of these groups has a union shield
surrounded by six flags. lied, whlto

tho usual price, Sl.no for prime oysters
and S3.50 for cullens.
