rrotecuUcn in the Luetgert trial Is now
fcefure the Jury. The state rested its
case yenerda? afternoon. The daring
ttstlmor.y was of the same impeaching
character that marked the evidence cf
Tburiday. Professor George IXircey had
his lnnr.lr.ga during the afternoon ces
sion and he n.ade matters unpleasantly
narni for Dr. Allport. He was primed
with facts concerning bones, but the
prosecution confined the youi.g otteolusl
cal expert to matters tending to counter
ait and refute the statements made by
Allpcrt when he was cal.'iil upon to
Identify bones he had never seen before.

Madrid, Oct 9. The cabinet has de

be issued appointing Captain Cer.eral
Blanco y Arenas, Marquis cf Pena-Plata,
governor general of the island. The
queen regent will sign the decree today.
According to El Heraldo 20.0CO reinforce

to Cuba. In the course of the cable
message sent by Captain General Wey
ler to Premier Sagasia, placing his post
In Cuba at the disposal cf the gov-
ment, he said: -If the functions with
w-hich the government entrusted me had
been merely those of governor general
of Cuba I should have hastened to re
sign. But the two-fold character cf my
mission and my duty as commasder-in-chief
in the face of the enemy prevent
my lenaermg a res.gnation.

"Nevertheless, although I can relv ur-
on the absolute, unconditional support of
me autonomist and constitutional par
ties, as well as upon public opinion, this
would be Insufficient without the nnr.fi-
dence of the government, now more than
ever necessary to me after the oensnre
of w hich I have been made the oblect ty
me memrjers and journals of the Liberal
party and by public opinion In the Unit
ed States, which latter Is largely influ
enced by the former. This confidence
would be necessary to enable me to put
en end to the war, which has already
been virtually concluded from cur lines
at Juraco to Cape Antonio."

Senor SaSasta redled: "I
for your explanation, and value your
frankness. I wish to assure vou that
the government reognizes your services
and values them as they deserve, but it

should be at or.e with the ministry. This

Havana, Oct 9. General AVeyler gave
yestarday an emphatic and absolute Cs
nial to the reports that he would resirt
removal from his command In Cuba and
in certain contingencies might espouse
the Carlist cause. He said according to
the official account: "My principles and
my military record are firm guarantees
that I will never oppose the constituted

CAMPAIGN IN GREATER NEW YORK.
Herny George Men Indorse a Mixed Sort
of Ticket for County Ofllrers.
New York. Oct. 9. The most sensa
tional event of the day In the municipal
campaign was the action taken last
night by' the Henry George campaign
committee. The Citizens' Union eountv
ticket in New Ycfk county, the Mc
Laughlin Democratic ticket In Kings
county, the Mullen Democratic ticket in
Kichmcr.d, and the Madden Demccratic
county ticket in Queens are all to be in
dorsed. At 11 o'clock it Vias said that
the assembly and aldermanic and bor
ough tickets of these same organizatior.3
had also been indorsed, but this could
not be verified. The United Democracy,
which nrst nominated George, declared
last r.isht through its leaders that It was
done with the George movement. Sec
retary Stover, of the Democratic Alli
ance, was equally outspoken, and said
his oreanization would knife George if
the ticket was forced cn it The Popu
lists seem to take the same view.
The Henry George campaign commit
tee was appointed yesterday w ith Willis
J. Abbott, a newspaper man, as chair
man. The committee agreed to accept
the volunteered services as speakers of
Representatives Simpson, of Kansas, and
James G. Miguire. t.f California; Louis
