mistook the force of guerrillas under
Peral for Sanches' vanguard, and
found himself among them before he
discovered his mistake. At the first
volley, from the Spanish, Maceo fell

surprise, commenced a general fire as
they retreated, and abandoned Maceo
in a dying condition.
Colonel Feljoo has had an arrange

the Commercial Tribune from Key

Advices from Havana state that

are quite bitter over the story sent

It emphatically. Palace ofllclals also

Weyler will deny it over his own
More lighting Is reported In the

The .work of entrenching Is being

Dallas, Tex., Dec. 14. There was
a great meetlne at the city hall in the
interest of the freedom of Cuba. Two
thousand representative men and a
hundred women were present. An
drew Jackson Houston, a son of the
hero of San Jacinto, presided, and
made a characteristic speech. Ad
dresses were also made by Chas Worth
and H. C. Stevenson, and the follow
lng resolutions were adopted:
"That this meeting voices the unan
imous sentiment of Texas In declar
ing that Spanish domination In Cuba
should be at once ended.'
The second resolution embodied the
resolution introduced in the senate on
the 10th by Senator Mills, and heart
ily Indorses It. -The
third resolution reads:
"That Texans stand ready to honor
any draft made upon them by con
gress and the president for men and
material to end the bloody, cruel and
barbarous reign of the Spaniards in
Cuba, and erect her into a free Ainer
ican state." The resolutions were
To Enter Republican Caucus.
Silver Advocates Ignore the Call
of Their Party,
WAsmNbTON,Dec,14.-SIx silver sen
ators practically declared themselves
out of the Republican caucus and now
occupy a position of armed neutral
ity toward their former associates and
tho legislatho pollcles,they may de

Is still absent from tho city, but the
other five- Dubois, Mantle, Canuon,
Pcttlgrew and Squlnn-actcd under
his advice and suggestion
to vote for a protective measure, thus
making a majority, they would not bo
restrained by any feeling of party loyj

they waited In tho way of silver
on a threat of defeating theblll. Tho
Republicans would then bo placed In
about tho same situation as the Dem
ocrats were In tho Senate when the
Wilson bill was hung up by tho neck.
The Democrats then had forty-four
Senators out of eighty-five. Hill noti
fied them they could nut count on his
vote. This reduced them to forty
three Just enough to pass their bill
This placed It In the power of any ono

Having to depend upon tho votes of

Denver, Dec. 14. It is claimed by
leaders in the movement to send
troops from Colorado to light for Cu
ban independence that more than
1000 names have already been en rolled

"The volunteers will not leave Den.

will move overland, either on foot or

The Cowardly Deed,
CiNdNNATi,Dec. 14. A Commercial
Tribune from Jacksonville, Fla., says:
J A.Huau, agent of the Cuban Junta
In this city, received a long letter
Saturday noon fronvhls confidential
correspondent In Havana giving tho
details of the assassination, top foul
for the clyllized nations to tolerate.

the stiver senators. He declared that
while he was as radical as ovor on
the silver question, ho must not bo
understood as haying abandoned any
other prlncles he may havc.advocated
which Republicans In common with
him advocated. Jlo was now as much
a protectionist as ho eyer was.
It Is worthy of note, though, that
the Republicans hopo to concllllate
Messrs. Cannon and Mantle and get
them back in the fold.
The action of the bix Republican
sliver Senatois who bolted the St.
Louis Convention In refusing "to
enter the caucus opens up an Interest
ing question as to tho probable at
titude of the Democratic gold Sena
tora who repudiated Mr. Bryan and
the Chicago platform. Tliero is no
reasonable doubt whatever that Sena
tors Palmer, Vilas, Gray, Caffrey,
Smith andlllll would, If lnfltcd, par
ticipate In the councils of their party,
but there is a decided feeling on the
part of some of tho more aggressive
silver Democrats against extending
the hand of party fellowship to their
erring brethern. No caucus of tho
Democratic members of the Senate
has yet been called, but there will bo
a loud protest agalpst the "Senatorial
McKlnlcy Aid Society" when ono Is
called. If taken in at all the gold
Senators will probably bo compelled
to enter a probationary period by
their acts will they bo judged.
The bitterest feeling Is shown by
tho regular. Democratic Senators to
ward Senators Palmer, Hill' VUa
ahd Caffrey, and even If they are al
lowed to participate In the council of
their party they will be shown scant
conrtesy and their advice will not bo
sought at any time.
The gold Democrats arc taking the
matter philosophically, so far as out
ward Indications go, but they realize
that their lot U a hard one. Tbero
is an Idea, however, that when tho
tariff Is on a .softer feeling will pre
vail. It seems an International Monetary
Commission bill can bo passed this
winter If tho Republicans aro in earn
est about It, but It will be bo shaped
by the silver senators that definite
results from the International confer
ence must bo had before the campaign
of 1808 opens.
If tho silver Republican bolters aro
not to act with the regular Republi
cans at all, it is a matter of greater
lmportaBCO than Its mere effect on
legislation at the present session. It
will Involve leglnlatlon In tho next
congress seriously. If the Republi
cans clef.t senators In both North
Carolina and Kentucky they will have
but forty-four men In tho senate, if
six bolters stand out against them,
It will take forty-five, with tho vote
of tho vice-president, to control the
senate. With tho bolters acting
against them they will not bo able to
reorganize the senate, nor adopt
any legislation without assistance
outside their party.
On the straight silver question, If
presented without any complications,
there will be forty-eight Bllver votes,
according to tho present outlook.
There Is little probability, however,
that the question will be permitted to
come up in that way.
The most 6erlous complication is as
tolthe tariff. If Pcttlgrew, Jones of
Nevada, Cannon, Mantle or any or all
of the silver bolters should determine
