r New York, Nov. 23. The Cuban
junta In this city claims to have re
ceived confirmation via Key West of
the report that Mucco had defeated
Captain-General Weyler in the Rubl
mountains of PInar del Rio. The fol
lowing account Of the battle was fur
nished by the secretary of the junta
General Wcplcr's forces while"
marching through the 'Rubl mount
ains, about thirty miles from Havana,
were attacked by Maceo's army. The
charge was so sudden and played such
havoc with the troops that the Insur
gents were able to pourseveral volleys
I into the Spanish ranks before the lat
ter could rally and return the fire.
The battle was short and desperate,
and General Weyler, seeing that his
men were lighting at a disadvantage
and were being slaughtered, ordered a
retreat, leaving over 100 dead and
taking his wounded with him.
After leaving the mountains Gen
eral Weyler proceeded to Artemis a,
where he stopped to allow his army

Salem, Or., Nov. 2
At a special meeting or tno
Buyers' Association of Oregon, hcl
on the 27th day of November. 1690. it
was unanimously resolved that tho
main ofllces of the different members
and tha houses they represent be
moved to Portland. This action Is
deemed necessary owlne to tho hostile
nttitudo taken by some of the citizens
of Salem, and tho stand taken by its
morning paper, the Statesman.
II. J. OXTENHEIMER,
B. O. SCIIUGKINa,
E. C. nERREN,
We deslro tho public to understand
that tho report circulated In Salem to
day that cither of us was paid 850 by
certain hop men for the freedom of
the Reed opera house on the night of
November 20, 1800, Is entirely false.
UAL. 1. I'ATTON,
C II. BuiiaanAF.
Salem, November 27. 1890.
It was an injustice to drag tho name
of the Salem Hop Buyers' Association
luto prominence far the offence of
some Individuals whom the associa
tion will not, and ought not defend.
The hop buyers are os a class respec-
tablo business men who bring hun
dreds of thousands of dollars to Salem
annually. They spend; for living and
for their famalies thousands of dollars
monthly and on behalf of other busi
ness interests of our city The
Jouunal would request that thoy
reconsider their action, as above
reported. A care'essly worded news
paper report Is not sufliclent justflca
tion to warrant removal of tho ofllces
of the hop buyers from this city.
The Salem Hop Buyers' Association
Is a highly respectable commercial In
stitution, and Is In no way responsible
for the action of some of Its members
personally or socially. But no mem
ber of that body can presume to make
a nuisance of himself owing to his
connection with the association. If
a man cannot be a gentleman and a
good citizen his business associations
