Havana, Dec. '12. Tho civil trial of
Julio Sanguilly, :i nnturallzcd Ameri
can citizen, on charges of conspiracy
against tho Spanish, government, be
gan at 1 o'clock Monday afternoon at
Sanguilly, It will he recalled, was ar
rested a long titrie ago and was tried
by a court martini, which sentenced
him to lifu imprisonment. Tho United
States government, however, inter
vened in his bchalC oti the ground that
his trial by u military tribunal
was uot in accordance with the terms
o the Spanish-American treaty, and
ho was granted a new triul before the
supreme court. Tho case excites much
interest here, owing to the prominence
of the prisoner and the questions in
volved, and a largo crowd assembled
in front of tho building in which the
trial was held to witness the entry and
departure of the accused.
The chief of police and an inspector
were tho first witnesses. Their evi
dence was favorable to the accused,
they declaring that they had no knowl
edge of Sanguilly over having taken
part in the rebel movement.
The dofeiuo protested vigorously
against the reading of tho testimony
given by Coloma, holding that its ad
mission in the present trial was direct
ly contrary to the law.
Sanguilly tostiiied that he did not
write tho letters which were produced
in las' former trial and which tho
prosecution claims proves beyond
doubt lus connection witit the re
The letters had been submitted to
experts, a ml they testified that they
were in the handwriting of the ac
cused. The prosecuting attorney re
viewed the c.isc. claimiug that tho
evidence was indisputable, that the
prisoner h:i I taken tin important purt
in the conspiracy to overthrow tho
Spanish government in Cuba. lie
skillfully presented all tho facts that
could be brought to bear against the
accused and asked tho court to sen
tence him to life imprisonment. The
court then adjourned until noon Tues
day. La I.ucha prints a bitter editorial
Monday on tho Cameron resolution. It
draws a parallel between the con
gresses of 1S72 and thOB and says that
both were inspired by mercenary mo

Washington, Doc. 22. Senator Mills,
of Texas, and Morgan, of Alabama, of
tho foreign relations committee, join
in making an additional report on tho
Cameron resolution. While they giro
tho majority report their unqualified
approval, concurring in all that it said
in the report, they deem it well to pre
sent some additional rcasous for agree

resolution. They quote tho report oi
tho committee on foreign relations in
1859 when that committee was consid
ering the senate bill "making appro
priations to facilitate the acquisition
of Cuba by negotiations."
Tho summing up of that report is re
peated as follows:
"There can be no doubt that an im
mense majority of the people of Cuba
are not only in favor but ardently de
sire annexation to the United States.
It would bo strange, indeed, if they
were not so, deprived of all ipfiuence

Washington, Dee. 22. In the senate
Mr. Hear submitted a favorable report
on the bill to establish a national
standard for grain. ') ho bill has tho
indorsement of the agricultural depart
ment, which says it is commendable,
and seeks to fix a standard for classify
ing and grading grains which may bo
used in interstate anil foreign trade,
and is only less in importance than the
fixing by congress of the standard of
weights and measures.
Washington, Dec. 22. Early in tho
day the statement was passed around
that Senator Hale, who is opposed to
Cuban recognition under existing cir
cumstances, would demand a quorum
if tho debate was resumed, and that
doubting his ability to command a quo
rum, so many senators having loft tho
city, Mr. Vest had determined to post
pone his effort till after tho recess.
After this impression gained ground,
the proceedings rapidly assumed
a listless condition, which inten
sified when Air. Ilalo (rep.,
.Mo.) from tho committee on ap
propriations, reported back the
urgency deficiency bill and asked for
its immediate consideration. There
was no objection and the bill was read
with the amendments reported by the
committee. Tho amendments were
agreed to and the bill was passed and
tho bill returned immediately to the
house for concurrence in the amend
ments. A dozen private pension bills
wero passed and tho senate adjourned
until Tuesday, January .1.
On motion of Mr. Cooper (dcm.,Tcx.)

Cincinnati, Dec 22. James Preston,
a laborer, aged 30, shot his wife,
Amanda, aged 37, and his stepson, Wil
liam Ilryant, aged 17, and himself
Tuesday morning at aboutS:30 o'clock.
Tho shooting occurred at their homo
nt -137 East Pearl street. Mrs. Preston
was shot onco in tho head and onco in
tho loft shoulder. Ilryant was shot In
tho left arm. Preston sent a bullet
Into his own loft breast. Jealousy was
the cause of tho shooting, it appears.
Preston is a laborer. Ho lives with
Ills family on the fourth lloor of a ten
ement house. Recently they removed
from New Richmond, O.
Preston came homo at about tho
hour mentioned, and threatened to kill
his wife. Ilryant, tho stepson, seized
a hatchet, and ran toward his father.
The father ttirnod on him, and tho
first shot rang from James Preston's
revolver. Ilryant screamed as tho ball
plowed into his shoulder. Then ho
dropped tho hatchet and lied.
James Preston then turned on his
wife, and three shots from his revolver
cracked out. Two of them went to
the mark. Mrs. Preston fell on tho
bod in a pool of her ojvn blood. Pres
ton then turned tho weapon against
himself and fircdMnto Ills left breast.
His wound will likely prove fatal, as
also will tho wounds of Mrs. Preston.

The correspondent adds that the tone
of tho Spanish press toward tho United
States has materially cooled. Tho
.prospect of gaining time through Prcs
dent Cleveland's attitude gives confi
dence to tho belief that Gen. Woylor
will finish his operations against
tho rebels before March, when Mr.
Cleveland will retire from office. It is
added that tho rumors of military and
naval preparations on tho part of tho
Spanish must be received with cau
tion. The government, limited by tho
budget votes, is acting purely on tho

would oppose tho adoption of such a
motion by tho chamber, his remarks

Cubans might be victorious in their

Will Try to Discourage Jingoism.
New Yomc, Dec. 22. A Madrid spe
cial to the Journal contains an address,
signed by ox-Premier Castelar, to tho
American people, giving his views on
the situation in Spain and tho United
States. The address recites tho re
forms heretofore granted to Cuba, and
says tho same liberty of conscience, in
struction, the press and public moot
ing as is allowed hero in Spain, is al
lowed them, but nobody could prevent
thom from trying to establish a sov
ereignty by arms. Referring to tho
United States ho says in part:
Tho American Constitution has dis
tinguished between Americans and
naturalized citizens, requiring tho con
dition of birth in America for election
to tho presidency. This is wise, for
now we seo the diffcrenco between
Cleveland, who is prudent, and those
who would rush tho United States into
war. For ono thing, it has assured a
president who is shielding us from
tho recognition of the bellig
erency or independence of a republic
that has no existence, who is shield
ing us from tho craziest of resolutions
which would have tho inevitable ef
fect of bringing on war. And, as Mr.
Cleveland has acted, so will McKinlcy.
As a republican he will perhaps do
even more than would a democrat to
discourago jingos who advocato a
war, bound to bo equally fatal
to tuo ictor and vanquished, break
ing the bonds ot association which
bind the old world to tho now. I
deduce from Mr. Cleveland's messago
that he will stand as defender of his
own theory not to recognize tho bel
ligerency of the Cubans. A liberal
government like ours can not learn
from outsiders its faults in governing
the Antilles or submit to a mediator.
President Cloveland, like myself, was
obviously persuaded of the truth when
he wrote his messacrc, completely fav
orable as it was to Spain. What sur
prises me is tho senseless proposition
so favorably received by the
senate recommending the ac
knowledgement of Cuban rebels a3
belligerents recommending the inde
pendence which is impossible and
which would bo a frightful aggrava
tion to the Spanish people and a viola
tion of, international courtesy. They
tell mo that conflict is inevitable. It
will be as uncalled for an aggression
on the part of the United States as
was that of Napoleon in lbOS when ho
invaded our territory. We have done
everything to avoid war, everything
bn, humiliate ourselves bjfore the
strong and sully our national history
Rut if tho United States declare for
Cuban belligerency, we will maintain
our rights against all odds. Rut we
do not believe; we can uot believe, that
the American the humane, the pro
gressive will declare it. As for our
selves, we will do everything we can
to avoid this sad interference; without
pride, but also witout timidity.
