Havana, via Key West, Feb. 10.
Copyright 1897 by the Associated Press.
The various reports and statements
oLf aptaln General Weyler announcing
pacification of the province of Pinar
del Rio and the almost complete dis
appearance of the Insurgents in that
part of the Island are far from being
borne out by facts. As intimated In
these dispatehes when the Spanish com
mander made the remarks cited. If Pi
nar del Rio was as quiet as he alleged
It to be what has become of the arms,
horses, ammunition and stores, etc., of
the 7.000 men whom he admitted were
under arms there? As a matter of fact
the insurgent forces in Pinar del Rio
seem better off, more thoroughly
equipped and disciplined than at any
previous stage of the campaign. In sup
port of this assertion the following
statements have been gathered from the
most reliable sources:
Where Weyler Caa Find Babels, Perhaps.
In the neighborhood of Catallna and
Las Cuevas are the insurgent leaders
Varona Rivero and Luis Perez, with
1,200 men, well armed and having plenty
of ammunition, though poorly clad. In
the zone of Jaucia and Mula is the in
surgent leader Lazo with some 600 men.
Lazo is wounded in both arms. In the
districts of Bayas. Rio del Medio, Mang
nacos, Pena Blanca and Pan de Azucar
are various groups of insurgents with a
total of over 500 men under Vldel Du
casi. At the height of Cobernadora
and the Sierra del Rosario the insur
gents are under the command of Brig
adier General Rios Rivero and the lead
ers Jose Manuel Barrio and Perlco Del
gado. They consist of infantry and some
cavalry estimated to number about 800
men. At Lama heights, Bayate and Las
Mangas are other forces of insurgents.
Iatltnatioa of a Surprise for Weyler.
These forces alone, those of the known
leaders of the forces In the field, are es
timated to number about 5,000 men and
yet the captain general claims that Pi
nar del Rio Is "pacified." In addition
to these forces is a strong body of Insur
gents which seems to have mysteriously
disappeared from the neighborhood of
Havana. The whereabouts of this force
Is attracting much attention and is
known to be causing the Spanish staff
considerable anxiety. The friends of
the insurgents Intimate that a big sur
prise Is being prepared for Captain Gen
eral Weyler when be tries to return to
WORK THE REBELS ABE DOING.
Which Does Not took aa Though There
Was Perfect Peace.
On Feb. 1 the insurgents destroyed
with dynamite a culvert situated at a
point about 115 kilometres from here,
between Taco Taco and Bacanagua,
Pinar del Rio. At the moment of the
explosion an exploring train from
Vuelta Abajo was passing over the
culvert and the engine fell through.
The culvert was totally destroyed and
one passenger on the train was killed.
The engineer, two firemen, a captain
of the artillery volunteers and five sol
diers of the battalion of Asturias were
seriously wounded; two of them have
since died of the injuries thus received.
In addition eight soldiers were slightly
General Weyler from Las Cruces
marched to Villa Clara, capital of the
province of Santa Clara, and it was re
ported from Villa Clara that ha will
push on to Placetas and Remedios. Ad
vices from Remedios say that General
Maximo Gomes has moved from the dis
trict of Sanctl Spiritus to La Siguanea.
which caused rumors to be circulated
of a probable conference between the
generals and eventually the conclu
sion of peace. But these reports have
since been denied from insurgent
sources. All the rumors published about
prominent home rulers and former lead
ers of the ten years' war being engaged
In treating for peace are entirely with
out foundation, and are only Inspired by
the Diario de la Marina and perhaps
reproduced by some of the correspon
General Gonzales Munos Is upon the
point of returning to Spain on leave
of absence. His example Is to be fol
lowed by Generals Basaria. Bernal, Pin,
Ftgueron and Losas in March. Those
officers, the friends of the insurgents
claim, see absolutely no chance of glory
In Cuba and considerable danger of dis
grace, to say nothing of disease and
wounds. Consequently, their enemies
add. seeing that the Insurgents must
eventually triumph by the machete or
otherwise, they are adopting the policy
of rats when the latter become aware
that the ship which harbors them Is
upon the point of sinking.
The Insurgents on Monday fired upon
a Matanzas train near Campo Florida,
wounding a Spanish major and two pas
sengers. As this dispatch Is sent It has
become known that some of the most
prominent of the home rule leaders
here, after consulting together over the
reforms projected for Cuba, succeeded
in sending a cable message to the Mad
rid government requesting the latter to
considerably and radically amplify the
reform scheme, ading that under its
present form there is absolutely no
chance of Its meeting the wishes of tha
Insurgent leaders and bringing about
the pagination of Cuba.
