Oct. II).?The business element here In
Havana, and elsewhere seems to have ar?
rived at the conclusion that the Madrid
government cauuot end the war on the
basis of autonomy to Cuba, ns there are
not enough loyalists among the autouc
mists to hold public orlice. At least,
th.tt is the elaini tbe conservative Span?
iards make. In addition, the laltet ex?
press the belief that the autonomists,
even if they were placed in [tower, would
not be nble to preserve peace and protect
life and property from the lawless ele?
In view of th's condition of alTairs a
number of important merchants ami
sugar planters of Spanish origin, in con?
junction with several Cubans of promi?
nence, have been holding secret meetings
and corresponding with people in vari?
ous parts of the islam' with tbe object of
ascertaining the views of the commercial
and plauting community of Plnar del
Rio, Havana, Matan/.as and Hanta Clara
provinces as to the future for Cuba most
likely to further their interests and those
of the island in general.
It is expected that tbe majority of the
replies will be favorable to annexation of
Cuba to the United States, as the Wash?
ington government alone! apparently is
able,to guarantee peace in Cuba and the
protection of life and property. As soon
as It is ascertained that The sentiment of
the persons appealed to Is in favor of an?
nexation a committee will be sent to the
I.'nltsd States with instructions to lay
the case of Cuba clearly before business
men of prominence in the United States
and ask the latter to unite with the bus?
iness men of Cuba in a petition to the
Washington government ^asking ihe Uni?
ted States, in view of the failure at tbe
conservatives to suppress the insurrec?
tion by force of arms, to bring about the
annexation of Cuba to the United States.
The plan of Scuor Sagnsta, the new
Spanish premier, to give autonomy to
Cuba, far from givina satisfaction here,
has greatly increased tbe feeling of dis?
content. The autonomist party, it is
pointed out, existsonly in name, the actual
majority of the autonomists being in the
insnrgent ranks, and, with the exception
possibly of Senor Montoro and a few
other prominent autonomists, the masses
of that party are in sympathy with the
Consequently it will be seen the Span?
ish government, which has consulted
Senor Montoro on the subject, is finding
great difficulty In obtaining even the
suggestion of names of autonomists to
fill offices under an autonomist lorm of
government. It would be Imprudent, it
is added, to give such offices to the party
known -ts the reformists, as the more in?
fluential Spaniards hate them, and the
adoption of such a policy would possibly
mean rioting and even worse. Besides,
the masses of the resident Spaniards are
strongly anti-autonomists, and I bete is
little or no prospect of making them
change their minds.

Reason for the Sun's Short Notice

New York, Oct. 19 ? Tho only an?

of the following ten words,printed at the
head of the editorial columns:
"Charles Anderson Dana,'editor of the

This was all that told the readers of
that paper that its editor, the man who
had made it famous, had passed away.
Tho brevity of the notice occas'cned some

PULLMAN IS DEAD.
The Mitti .Millionaire Passed Away tit
His Homo Yesterday.
Chicago, Oct. 1!).?George M Pullman,
the inventor land manufacturer of rail?
way cars hearing 'that name, died this
morning of heart disease.
Mr. Pullman was in apparently good
health when he retired last, nigh*., not
having complained of any ailments, and
nobody was present when the end came,
at his home at Eighteenth street and
Prairie avenue. *Mrs. Pullman was in
Xew York at the time of his death. She
left for Cnlcngo this morning.
Mr. Pullman was fifty times over a
mil ionaire. He was the founder of tho
town of Pullman, and a revolutionize? of
railroad travelling. He was horn in

1831, and with one of seven children.
His parents were poor country people

DEATHS NUMBER ONE HUNDRED.
Record of the Fever Cases in Xew Or?

Xew Orleans, Get. 9 - -Before 7 o'clock
this evening the one hundred mark of
deaths during the present period of yel?
low fever prevalence had been reached.
When *tho hoard of 1 ealth closed its
hooks last night thero had been ninety
three, fatal cases. Between last night
and nightfall to-day, seven deaths were
reported. This century of deaths has oc?
curred among less than 91)0 cases that
have been reported to the board since
early In September, when ?he first caso
made its appearance in Xew OrleaDs.
As usual, however, to-day's record has
been swelled by the terrible criminal
neglect of the poorer classes. Tho record
to-day was by no means reassuring.
Early this evening the new cases exceed?
ed thlrtv. The cases, as on other days,
have bobbed up in all directions. The
quarantine system isstUl in etl'ect, but it
does not seem to restrain the spread of
the infection, and the opinion seems to
be borne out. that yellow fever is not, at
all contauious, .but atmospherically in?

TUNNEL TO JERSEY CITY.
Plans for an Immense Project Before the
Brooklyn Aldermen. j
Now York, Oct. 15).?The plans for j
building a railroad tunnel from Brooklyn
to Jersey City [under Manhattan Island
progressed another step to-day. William
H. Baldwin, president, of the Long Island
railroad, and also president of the tun?
nel company, presented a petition to the
Brooklyn board of aldermen for the nec?
essary grant and franchises for operating
through and ink er the city. By the terms
of tbe Atlantic avenue improvement bill
passed last winter, the board of aldermen
is authorized to grant right of way
through tte streets for the tunnel. As
soon as this right is granted the company
must proceed to secure by purchase or
condemnation the property necessary
along the way.
The plans for the scheme contemplate
a tunnel ranging in 'depth from three to
oue hundred and thirty feet from the
Flatbush railroad station under the Rast
and North rivers to Jersey" City. The
tiiiinul is to be twenty-two feet, t'idit
inches 'vide, and fifty and one half feet
high. It will contain a double track rail?
road, which is to be operated! by electric?
ity. The tunnel will go beneath the East
river oelow the Brooklyn bridge towers.
It will be reached at. the city ball, Brook?
lyn, and near Nassau street,.New York,

to get the first glimpse of the moon
through the Yerkes telescope. E. E.
Barnard was tho next member of the

the conclusions of these two learned gen?
tlemen are identical. In that they agree
that neither discovered anything of im?
portance to the scientific world.
The peculiar lines and spots noticed by
the Parisian ast ronomers on the maps of
the lunar planisphere that is being photo?
