'THE MAN WHO WAS."
The Released Competitor Prison

Pitiable Condition or the Men The Story
of One of Them Who Owed HU Lira to
Fossesslftn or secret or fepauisb.
General Feared Disclosure.
New York, Nov. . "The Man
Who Was" caiue down the gang plank
of the steamship Saratoga yesterday
afternoon, nervous, dazed and shrink
ing with the remnant of terror that
still tainted his manhood, even though
live days removed from the source that
There were five of him. but five du
plications of the same terror-haunted
wreck. They were the "Competitor
prisoners" from Havana.
No mere description in words can
paint the ghastly picture presented by
these one-lime men, now shattered
wrecks and mere shells of human
ity. The strongest impression given
by them is the idea of an over
banging terror still present and al
most ineradicable. It will be months
before any ot these men will be able to
deep quietly and without the fear of
some frightful fate.
This is the story which young Que
sada told last night concerning his re
lease: While a member of the army corps
in the Piuar Uel ltio district I became
possessed of information to the knowl
edge of which I think I owe the saving
of my life.
"Last March I wandered about half
a mile away from our hospital tent in
search of some herbs, of which I de
sired to make medicine, when a de
tachment of Spanish infantry captured
me. The noise made by my struggle
to free myself aroused my 11 compan
ions, and they rushed to my assistance.
During the light that followed my
friends were beaten and one of them
"After the conflict was over I was
bound and thrown on the ground and
beaten unmercifully. 1 was told if 1
would confess where my comrades had
their dynamite stored, they would stop
beatiug me. This I declined to do, and
.seeing that they could not force a con
fession from me, they sent me to Ar
temisia prisou, where 1 was tried and
sentenced to be shot.
"It was at this juncture that my
knowledge stood me in good stead.
Two proiniuent Spauish generals, one
a brigadier general, whose name 1 do
not care to uientiou, and Gen. Arolas,
principally coucerned themselves in
' my release. They feared me because
they knew I had disclosures to make
winch would ruin them. They knew
that 1 would tell what 1 knew. These
men are either base cowards or
their desire to hold their positions
overcame their scruples. They were
in coustant communication with the
insurgents, having written letters to
them which I saw while in the Pinar
del Kio district, in which they stated
that they wauted to make arrange
ments by which Spanish soldiers would
not be attacked in the districts cou
troled hy them. In return, the insur
gents were to have free access to the
trocha and be permitted to pass it at
will. This proposition was accepted,
and in this way we were able to keep
in constant communication with Go
mes, Maceo and Garcia. We had about
,000 men under command of Gen.
Nunez,' while the Spaniards had be
tween 40,000 to 5U.O0U, yet we were well
able to cope with them."
The frieuds of youug Que sada were
surprised to learn that he had secured
bis release by giving away a secret
which betrayed the allies of the insur
gents in the Spauish army. It was
this information and not Gen. Blanco's
friendship for the late Prof. Quesada
that secured his pardon.

THE INDIAN PROBLEM.
Borne Interesting Data as to It Educa

Rpport "Rrtnrued Students" and the
Influence or Their After Life on th
Tribes Manual Training What Shall
Constitute an Indian.
Washi.ngto h, Nov. 23. Some inter
esting data as to the educational as
pect of the Indian problem is given in
the annual report of Dr. V. I. Hall
mann. superintendent of Indian
schools, which has just been made
public. The subject of "returned stu
dents" going back to their tribes after
school life is taken up, and SupL llall
mann says he is still collecting data
bearing on this phase of the prob
lem, but the information already ob
tained justifies the statement that
the severe criticisms made of both
the Indians ami schools on this score,
if at all justifiable, are so only in a
limited degree. Wherever on reserva
tion there has been marked progress
in civilization it is traceable largely to
the returned students' influence, the
majority of whom are measurably sue
cessful in the efforts to turn away
from tribal evils and drawbacks,
though many obstacles confront them,
not only in the stubborn conserva
tism of older Iudiaus. but also in exces
sive tutelage on the part of the gov
ernment. "Honor and grateful admiration,'
he says, ''are due to the young heroes
and heroines who annually go forth
from our Indian schools, pitting their
lives against adamantine walls of un
reasoning tradition and superstition,
wrestling victory from what see ins ut
As to the manual training movement
in the Indian schools. Dr. Hallmann
says a few schools are doing creditable
work in this direction, but in the ma
jority of them, even where manual
training teachers are employed, the
results are meager. This is due partly
to the lack of facilities for systematic
work, aud to lack of civil service eligi
bles for this important branch of the
Indian school work. The former ob
stacle is being overcome as fast as In
dian office means will permit, the other
can be overcome only by making the
position more lucrative.
The opinion is given that in the study
of agriculture an excessive acreage of
land is a hindrance rather than a help,
from an educational standpoint.
The discovery of many children with
very little, if any, Indian blood in the
boarding schools leads to the recom
mendation: "Inasmuch as there seems
to be no remedy under existing laws,
it is imperative, in the interest of both
races, that congress should early indi
cate by statute what degree of blood
shall constitute an Indian, and to what
extent adopted Indians shall be enti
tled to governmental support in mat
ters of education.
QUESTIONS FOR CONGRESS.
A Long Session Predicted, with the Cur
rency as the'Most Important Question.
Washington, Nov. 2S. Senator Bur
rows, of Michigan, expresses theopion
ion that there will be a protracted dis
cussion of the currency question dur
ing the approaching session of con
gress and that in all probability con
gress will be in session until August.
"In addition to the routine business
of congress, appropriations, etc.," he
said, the Hawaiian question will be
disposed of and consideration will be
given to the currency question, immi
gration and a few other things.
"As to the Cuban question the situa
tion is very peculiar. There appears
to be a great deal of confusion with re
lation to the adoption of a new policy
by Spain, and I do not think congress
ought to act until an opportunity has
been had to determine what will re
sult from lilanco's undertaking.
"I think," he added, "that the most
perplexing thing that confronts us is
how to handle the currency question."

Havana, via Ket West, Fla., Nov.
tx Gen. Pando started by train from
this city on Saturday last in order, ac
cording to the official announcement,
to take charge of the campaign against
the insurgents. He was accompanied
by his full staff, and was escorted by a
company of artillery. But it is stated,
on very good authority, that Gen.
Pando has been commissioned by Mar
shal Blanco, the captain-general, to
enter into communication with the In
surgent leaders, with the view of ar
ranging for peace.
GEN. RAMON BLANCO.
This statement is based on accurate
knowledge of all the facts in the case.
Gen. Pando did not leave this city un
til he had taken steps calculated to
further the object which Marshal
Blanco has in view. Gen. Pando, after
a consultation with the captain-general,
first brought about the release
from confinement of Damien Caballero,
who has been imprisoned on the Isle of
Pines for some time past, for, it is
alleged, acting as a spy for the
insurgents and bringing about a
disaster for the Spanish troops at
Caicaco, province of Santiago de Cuba.
Gen. Pando furnished Caballero, who
is the godfather of Kabi looked upon
as being the backbone of the insurgent
movement in the province of Santiago
de CubaAwith a considerable sum of
money, and caused him to be landed
at Manzanillo, province of Santiago
tie Cuba, where a good horse was placed
at his disposal. Gen. Pando's peace
emissary was also furnished ollicial
documents empowering him to act in
behalf of the Spauish commander,
and from Manzanillo Caballero made
his way secretly to the Jiguani hills,
where Gen. Rabi has his headquarters.
Gen. Pando instructed Caballero to
offer Gen. Rabi a high rank in the
Spanish army and a large sum of
money, to be distributed among the
other insurgent leaders of that part of
Cuba, and, in addition, a large amount
of money for himself, in the event of
his succeeding in arranging terms for
peace. Besides this, Caballero was in
structed to inform the insurgent lead
ers that the Spanish authorities under
took to honestly establish the new
autonomist regime if the leaders of
the insurgents would accept the
propositions made them.
Although Caoallero has not returned
from Santiago de Cuba, confidential
advices which have reached the Span
ish officials here seem to indicate that
Caballero has so far been unsuccessful.
It is understood Gen. Rabi has replied
that he believes in a successful ending
of the war in favor of the insurgents
is approaching; that the Cubans, with
the aid of the United States,
will gain their independence, and
that, therefore, he prefers to continue
fighting the Spaniards until the
final victory is won. Caballero also
negotiated with Gen. Du Valon, the
Frunch leader of the insurgents.
There seems to be no intimation as to
the result of Gen. Caballero' s negotia
tions with Gen. Du Valon, although it
may be judged by the attitude as
sumed by (ten. Rabi that the peace
negotiations are likely to fall flat in
Siiutiago de Cuba.

E. Salmon, Chief or the Bureau or Ani
Washlngton. Nov. 24. Dr. D. E.
Salmon, chief of the bureau of animal
industry of the agricultural depart
ment, has maile a report to the secre
tary of agriculture on what is known
as the Beardon proeess of making but
ter. The report describes the process,
which consists of churning a certain
quantity of butter with cream, and
also the experiments conduct
ed by the department. The result
ing compounds were sent to New
York, where an expert was requested
to-score them. He reported as follows:
"In relation to the three boxes of but
ter marked X. Y, Z. will say that, up
on examination of same, my opinion is
that it is what is known on our mar
ket as 'Process butter,' and on that
class of butter 1 can neither place a
grade or score, as I have no rule to
govern grade or manufactured but
ter under this process. It can not
be classified as creamery, imita
tion creamtory, factory, or dairy but
ter, and we have no grading on any
other kind of butter except these
kinds. I find these samples poor in
flavor, the grain is badly broken, show
ing that it has been much overworked,
aud is very salvy; consider it unlit for
use; only use that could be made of it
would be to a cheap class of bakers'
Dr. Salmon then says: "By follow
ing the directions given in the patent,
and using the quality of cream which
one would naturally take for the pur
pose, a product will be obtained which
resembles butter iu some respects. It
does contain, as claimed, a little more
of the "phosphatic and other elements
that supply the tissue wants of the
human body than is found in
good butter, but dairymen en
deavor to wash and work -these
elements out of their butter, because
they furnish food for bacteria, which
:ausu the butter to spoil. As a human
food, the product cau not be said to be
belter than butter, for the reason that
it contains less fat aud more water.
The slight increase in nitrogenous
Constituents amounts to little from
this standpoint, as the same cau be ob
tained in much cheaper and better
form in milk.
"Considering the large proportion ol
water which the product manufactured
by this new process contains, it doe
not seem proper to call it butter, and
it is a question whether it would be al
lowed to be sold as butter in stales
where pure food laws are iu force. At
tempts have frequently been made to
sell so-called butter of practically the
same composition as this, and they
have met with failure."

A Missuuriaii' Claim Adversely Passet.
Washington, Nov. 24. A pension
Claim which has been pending 27 years,
and which is admitted would carry
back pay of SJ5.000, has been decided
by Assistant Secretary of the Interior
Davis. It is the ease of Gottlieb El
lersick, of Missouri, whose claim
for alleged total blindness due
to disease of the eyes contract
ed during the military service in
1304, is rejected. The case has at
tracted much inteiest and presented
many perplexing features, but it was
found that no record of the existeuce of
any disease of the eyes in the service
existed, nor was there competent testi
mony to show the incurrence of any
such disability in the service.
The decision holds that the claim
ant's own statements were inconsist
ent, and flatly contradictory of his
most important witnesses, aside from
which the physicians and oculists de
cline to accept the cause of his present
blindness as due to any surface origin.
