cacn Thoro ia no such a thing in tlio
country in Cuba. Not because of losa

no upeessity in having tueni.
Enable CJomez and Garcia to equip
the Cubans for war, and they will make
it hard and strong. Give them pood
rifles. Thuy know how to uso them.
Men who for throe years latvo each had
uu average of teu cartridges iu their
boxes, and nouo to follow, bavo loarued
nut to waste them.
Tho exact military situation in Cuba
today is just tba oonditiou for Gomez
to utilize if armed nnd supplied. He
has at the lowest estimate 30,000 men
who have harried arms and are accus
tomed to Spauish Are. The enthusiastic
Cuban junta probably claims 100, 000.
The truthful Gomez put it lust January
at S3, 000. Thcro are undoubtedly 150,
000 iu Cuba available for armament.
But tho estimate of !i0,000 jnen now
ready for business only includes Cuban
soldiers, neither employoes of the civil
government organizations nor "rauoh
eros. Tba fathers and the supporters of
families living in tho woods having
failed tr obey Weyler's recuncontratiou
haudo are included. They, however,
would bo most useful as they now aro
as scouts, and many would undoubtedly
join the regular forces. Fully armed,
equipped nnd supplied, Gomez and Gar
cia can with little physical assistance)
cle'ir tho island of fc-pauisb buses for
SpuuiKU food and of themselves compel
tbu quick surrender of all tbo Spanish
forces outside of Havana, Matnuzas and

This statement tliut 30.0CU Cubans

called absurd military conditions. And
that is tho term for Spanish strength

That is Cuba's military heart. The far

lust November that tho Spanish troops

plus iu any base except the tureo men
uui'ed. There is loss now. Thero will
Iyj nothing soon. This means death to
Cuban nouoombatauts our proteges
as well as to Spanish military move
ments, nnd tho island should bo taken
quickly. This is what Gomez cau do.
Ask him what ho wants, thou send Go
mez what he wants and where he wants
it, and at once.
The coast is ours. This island is like
a ribbon and with easy deep approaches
to nil necessary parts of its coast line.
Our transports could start simultane
ously for all insurgent bodies. Before
tbo ships cau bo started each leader to
ba supplied can be given by Gomez offi
cial instructions and brought to thti
poiut of disembarkation and unloading.
Knowing that cartridges iu plenty are
soon and surely to come, Gomez can
uso what ammunition ho has iu the to
tal disablement of every railroad in
Cuba. Thoro is now no Spanish water
transportation, aud with tho railroads
goue tho poorly supplied Spanish lases
would be absolutely isolated.
Eastern Cuba need not bo considered.
Spain is weakest there. Garcia has per
haps 12,000 men. As soon as supplied
Garcia could desert eastern Cuba and
march, as only Cubans can march, due
west. His is the best disciplined consid
erable force iu Cuba. Garcia would need
four companies of United States caval
ry. Our infantry could not wisely at
tempt to keep up with hardened Cuban
foot soldiers. I bavo seen these inarch
40 miles a day for seven days, and on
almost nothing but sugar cane for food.
No artillery would seem necessary tc
this eastern chief. One transport laud
ing at a iiint on the south coast near
est Garcia would equip him. Ono gov
ernment tug or torpedo boat could koep
abreast of his position aud maintain
communication between Garcia and Go
mez and the United States government.
Gomez could march at once. He
might have 25 pieces, ono troop of cav
alry aud one regiment of regular in
fantry from the states. What aro called
forts in Cuba are square bolos in tho
ground with wooden covers. Nouo has
nrtillcry. A few are small masonry
guardhouses. The bvtrage garrisun is
about 80 men. Thero aro nouo of thoso
which cannot be quiukly reduced by a
32 inch fieldpioce, and uo town has over
a dozen of them.
Arms aud munitions can ho easily
lauded within 40 miles of Gompz's pres
ent position. He will need littlo forage
while crossing Santa Clpra province.
Thoro is cxci-lleut grazing there. Mu
tauzas has remaining much sugar cauo
also. Gomez could take Saiicti Spiritus,
Santa Clara aud every smaller town on
his lino of march without much inter
fering with his progress, and Garcia,
niarcbiug light, could uateii him in two
weeks near Matauzas. If quicker juno
tii.u were desired, Ourcia's men could
tiu put, aboard transports aud landed
near (i'ltiiuz iu a very few days. Gomez
can pick up all tbo local Cuban forces
cu his march, and, with Garcia from
the east, aud meeting Mayia Rodriguez
from Pinar del Rio, urrivo behind Ha
vana in three weeks with 20,000 men.
Onca at Havana, if 20,000 Cubans
ud United States artillery are not
enough, combined with tho marine
forces, then more United States regu
lars can bo sent. They need not go
before. There never was a struggle so
little understood as tho Cuban-Spanish
one. Spain's troops aro not geuorally
known to be now practically nseloss
from a military point of veW through
tho crass stupidity of Spanish oflioers.'
They are bravo, but they, do not know
bow to conduct troons. The men them
Bnlves uro inaguiliceutly steady nnd
ralm, but they have never been drilled,
'i'hey do not kr iw how to shoot. Add
' to these radical aud blighting dofocts
tho starved condition of tho troops aud
cloarlv we are overestimating the ticuo,"
ish army in (Juua, aud wo greatly ana
criminally underestimate tho Cubans if
we do not immediately enable them to

YALE'S MOUNTED BATTERY.
I'Ihmn Comi.l,.i. (., ,(.., a i; tallim of
173 .Men to the i'r . it.
The Yale Alumni Weekly rocently
announced tha completed plans for the
mounted battery whi :'j is in process of
enlistment at i'ale. Two undergradu
ates, Messrs. Parkhurst and Chappel,
have been to Washington and Hartford
to consult with the national and state
authorities and get their advice and ap
proval. They have met with success. In
consequence of the advice received by
them tho plan to form a machine gun
battery has been changed to one contem
plating a horse battery. It will be re
membered that as soon as it became ap
parent that there would bo a fight with
Spain the leading Yalo seniors met aud
asked Washington what sort of addi
tions tho army most needed aud whoro
tho hottest work would be found. Tho
decision to enlist a battery followed im
mediately on tho answer.
As now arranged, tho battery will
consist of ITS men, with an armament
of sis a inch guns. Instead of restrict
ing enlistments to scientific and aca
domio seuiors tbo rolls have been thrown
open to all undergraduates and gradu
ates of a few years' standing. By thus
iucrBasing tho number of those eligible
it is hoped to raise the standard of phys
ical fitnoss. Seasoned athletes who have
fought for Yale on the athletio field
will, it is believed, make the best kind
of fierce and disciplined fighters. As
soon ns possible tho new battery will
be transported to Chattanooga and then

STOCK OF FLAGS.

Tho stock of American flags has been
practically exbausted, and the unprece
dented demand has caused a rise in
prioes, which, it was stated tho other
day, is in tome cases as high as T5 to
100 per cent. At ouo wholoaale hoad
quarters it was stated that sufficient
buutiug to make tho flags could not be
obtained, aud at another it was said
that tho flags could not bo made fast
At tho largest flag factory in Phila
delphia tbo manager said that he had
never known such a demand for tho
star spangled banner. All manufactur
ers aud dealers aro sold out. Thero is a
great deniaud from stores, but orders
canuot be filled. Tbo call is general,
and telegrams from all over tho United
States are received to hurry orders.
Among the telegrams received was
one from an Illinois man, who asked for
a flag which would probably be tbo lar
gest ever made. Ho wanted ono 250 by
COO feet and said that his purpose was
to covor tho sido of a hill with it. It
was estimated that two tou3 of buutiug
would be required to make the flag.
