Key Wkst, Flo., Deo. 4. Passengers
who arrived from Havana Wodncsday
night report that Woyler's campaign
In Pinar del Rio so far is a complete
failure, despite tho fact that lie has'
over (!0,000 men In tho province. When
Weylcr let Artemlsa ho formed a1
column of 10,000 infantry, 1,600
cavalry and ten pieces of artll
lory and marched, skirting tho
base of tho hill on tho southern
side, and sccklng,an opening to attack
Macco, who is strongly fortified on top
of tho hills. It appears that Maceo
has gathered all his forces and is now
entrenched in tho hilts waiting Woy
ler's attack. There is no truth, it is
said, in tho report that Macco has di
vided his forces into small bands to
sludo combat and it is further declared
that it is known on good authority
that Woyler has no view of meeting
Gomez with a largo force is reported
steadily advancing west. IIo is now
reported in Santa Clara province and
it is said is coming with 20,000 men.
Thero aro more shocking details of
Lopez Coloma's execution. Oen. Mar
tinez Campos, it is said, is indignant at
the injustice committed in executing
Coloma. Campos obtained tho queen's
pardon for him and sent a telegram so
advising. Tho messngo arrived at noon
but reports say Woyler pocketed it and
ordered tho execution to proceed.
The rebels trapped '24 local guerrillas
near Quivicau recently. All were
killed with matchets. 'J. he fact was

Advices rccolved from Havana
by steamer Ollvctto state that Tues
day tho vanguard of tho army of
Gomez L campod near Guanabucao,
which is just across tho bay from Ha
vana. Monday about noon the insur
gents began to bombard Guanabucao.
Tho roar of tho guns was easily heard
in Havana and threw tho loyalists
of the latter city in a panic.
Many houses wero fired by tho
shells from the insurgent can
non, and the smoke and flames
wero visible to tho pcoplo of Havana.
When tho Olivctto sailed the bombard
ment was still in progress, and it was
reported that 80 houses had been
wrecked and S3 Spanish soldiers killed.
Tho Spaniards in Havana wore greatly
alarmed, as they believe that tho
bombardment of Guanabucao was
only preliminary to an attack up
on tho metropolis. It is not llkoly,
however, that Gomez wilt attack
Havana at this time, his purpose being
to make a diversion in favor of Maceo.
Gen. Gomez with tho main body of his
army is now in Santa Clara near tho
border of Matanzas province, and is
proceeding westward as rapidly as

examing tho ilnod situation, has a fow
encouraging words to offer. Ho be
liovos that the gorge will not go out
suddenly but Is not prepared to say
whether or not dynumlto can budgo it.
It is beliovod ho will not nutliorlzo
such un attempt to bo made. Tho
water began rising at 4 o'clock Thurs
day uftcrnoun, and came up with a
rush until it had passed far beyond its
maximum height of Wednesday. Tho"
bustle and excitement of Wednesday
was followed by a. day of comparative
inactivity. Tho only business trans
acted was such as the llood mado neces
sary. Tho freight and passengur depots of
tho Wisconsin Central and Milwaukee
roads aro in a sadly demoralized condi
tion. Mayor Lindley has received numer
ous telegrams proffering assistance in
case aid is required. Gov. Upham telo
graphed for information, and asking if
any help could bo givon by the state to
rumovo tho dangor. Mayor Kauschon
berger, of Milwaukee, telegraphed that
tho city stood ready to do ull In Its
power to offer relief in tho event of
disaster. 1 o all telegrams tho mayor
replied that no assistance was yet re
quired and that tho city was in good
condition yet so far as danger to life is
It is impossible to get room for all
who have been obliged to move, and
merchants have been obliged to store
goods in private residences on tho hill.
Up to 9 o'clock Thursday night 3,000
pounds of dyuaraito have been used on
the gorge, but with little offect. To
make mattors worse a heavy snow
storm ha set in, and more ice

stricken, and men aro asking
each other whoro it will end Busi

aggregate will reach fully S100.000.
Reports .from tho farming country is
distressing. Hundreds aro homeless
and all their personal effects swept
away by tho relentless wators. Tho
government wilt be asked to send, men
to try to blow up tho gorge. This is
the only hope now to save tho city
from being inundated.
At midnight Mayor Lindley consid
ers this town out of danger. Tho wa
tor has been falling slowly but steadily
since 0 o'clock Thursday afternoon,
nnd ho is of the opinion that tho only
danger now is from possible breakages
of dams above. Tho Little Falls dam
appears all right. Rivermcn and
lumbermen pronounce it one of
tho most substantial dams in
tho state, if not tho entire country.
It is reported Thursday night in a
very safe condition and has at no time
since the high water occurred been in
danger. Tho people of Eau Claire have
had all their fears allayed and appre
hend no further danger from tho ice

Appropriations for ext Fiscal Year Will
Itn Not Lini Than (3140,(100,000.
Washington, Dec. 4. The appro
priation for pensions for tho next
fiscal year will not bo less than one
hundred and forty million dollars, nnd
it may exceed that sum. The sub
committee of the house appropriations
committee, which is now drafting tho
measure find that tho most rigid econ
omy will not reproduce tho amount
necessary for tho maintenance of tho
pensions office beyond tho sum of fifty
thousand dollars in the appropriation
for fees for examining surgeons. This
saving will result not from reducing
the fees, but because a surplus to that
extent will remain unexpended from
this year's appropriations.

lier, German consul at Cincinnati, has
written to tho governor of Indiana
asking what rules tho state has for

suls in different parts of tho United

opinion that facts are being gathered
by the German government for tho
purpose of excluding our meats from
that country, and he would not be sur
prised to hear of such action being
taken any day. Tho frequency of
