Looks Like a Volcanic Eruption.
Fifty thousand kilogrammes of black

vwlcar.ie eruption had occurred, the
country being swept almost bare with
in a radius of two miles, houses de
stroyed, trees overturned and distorted,
fields devastated ar.d covered with
ttor.es and impalpable black dust. Some
cf the stones are tnoiTioup. Or.e weigh

are evident in all the suburbs of Toulon
ar.d in the city itself. Kven at St. Jean

and the others severely injured, the cor

A large number of soldiers are now
employed in clearing away the debris,

l'ayment of the Cuban Army Gomez
Gives Figures Natives Suspicious.
Havana. March 6. Governor Genera!
Rrcoke, referring to the complaints
made at Santiago that a large number
ol" laborers have been thrown out of
work by an apparent reduction in the
financial allotment to Santiago prov
ince, says that the funds furnished the
several provinces by the authorities at
Havana have in all cases been eiual to
tin? respective requisitions. General
Maximo Gomez has sent Governor Gen
eral Brooke by the hand of Inspector
(Jeneral Roloff. of the Cuban army, a
statement of the number of men in that
army. It is understood that the total
!' aches 4S.00O G2.0CO privates. 10. Cfi-)
l'on-eommiSFioned officers and the rest
commissioned ctficers from major gener
als to sub-lieutenants. About 10.000 pri
vates enlisted in 1S95. IS, 000 in lSt;6, 4,003
in 1K7. and 8.000 in lfctiS. In the case of
-.000 the enlistment date is not known.
These general statements are insuffi
cient as a basis for the payment, and a
more detailed list of the various com
mands, with the namesand whereabouts
of the soldiers, .is necessary. This, it is
understood. General Gomez will supply.
The Cuban military assembly is spend
ing its time in a discussion of the mys
terious loan of $12,000,000, for which it is
reported those leaning the money will
rsk $20.0CO.COO in payment. Gomez does
not attend the meetings of the assem
bly, and apparently ignores that body,
which has not ye t decided officially to
accept the $3.000. 000 from the I'nited
Slates. General Rr-ioke has received a
telegram from Washington saying that
paymasters with the $3,C00,CCO will ar
rive here next week.
La Quasirr.a issued an extra based on
the speeches of Sewell and White in the
s nate last week. It says: "It is omin
ous that the senate has decreet! to ex
terminate the Filipinos. The United
States, encouraged by the asserted vic
tories in the Philippines, may inaugu
rate the same policy in Cuba. It be
hooves all Cubans to be on the alert.

course open to men who are without
c.rk and food namely, to become ban
itti. Hunger demands bread. The pro
ceedings of the I'nited States authori
ties at Havana are evidently antagon
istic to Major General Wood and born of
j'.alously of his success and popularity
among all classes of Cubans. Three
