fired by some one outside of the

instantly. He did not see the assas

suspicion, and is now in the Buffalo

the hired man had attempted to as

THE SITUATION IN CUBA.
The Condition of Affaire In tho Island:
Gone Over for tho Information
Washington, Oct. 26. At the cab
inet meeting yesterday the situatioo.
in Cuba was gone over for the infor

see the president. It was explained
that the time limit for the evacuation
of the island had been extended from
December 1 to January 1, and that the
United States would assume control
of the government of the several cities,
and provinces as fast as they were
evacuated by the Spaniards, but no
faster. Havana probably will be the
last of the cities to surrender civil
control to the United States. This,
however, must be accomplished by the
1st of January.

Havana, Oct. 26. Manuel Sanguilly,.
the well-known author and orator, who
was a distinguished soldier in the ten.
years' war, will represent the Second .
Third and Fifth corps of the Cuban
army at the Cuban assembly convened
to consider the establishment of a per
manent Cuban government. His choice
by these troops, including the Hol

iisions, is highly significant as indicat
ing the sentiment of a large number oi
the Cubans now under arms.
Sanguilly, who is a Cuban of the
Cubans, and an extreme radical, has.
made several speeches of late that
have caused a profound sensation, in
which he has urged upon the Cubans
the imperative necessity of placing
full confidence in the United States
government, and has censured those
who have shown distrust of the Amer
icans. He has advocated the disband
ment of the Cuban troops and their
return to the arts of peace, dwelling
long and earnestly upon the impor-
! tanee to the Cubans of securing the
confidence of the United States.
