Reports from Havana are that an

Rivera's foothill forts by some of Wcv-
ler's forccs.and that the Spanish were
repulsed, the big dynamite gun be

securing the victory for the insur
gents. It is said oyer f0 men were
lost on the Spanish side, and few in
the Cuban ranks. All information is
refused in Havana, where the officials
say no such -engagement ever took
place. As the report came through
the regular Cuban channels, it is be
Colonel ..Sam Martin's column has
been burning houses and destroying
plantations all through the section
soutli and west of Artcmlsa, as far
out as they dared venture.
During the past week over400 houses
and many, plantations have been de
stroyed, 400 head of cattle secured,
and a number of tobacco fields and
cane patches laid waste. Wejler's or
ders arc to spare nothing. A number
of paciflcos, it is reported, offered re
sistance to the taking of- their cattle,
saying their families would starve,
and they were killed. OVer 23 such
Instances of murder were recorded.
General Rivera's forces are increas
ing, and he has had accessions to his
stock of arms and amunitlon this
week? an expedition having landed
on the south side or the island irom
Honduras or Mexico, it is presumed.

"I have 20 battalions, ranging from
800 to 1000 men each, occupying all the

have destroyed everything ih sight
and have been able to subsist otr tho
cattle of the insurgents, which were
found grazing in the hills, and with
whose destruction dies their remain

either starve or submit, and some may
prefer to do the former, owfhg to their

"That point Is easily cleared up.
I know that they have held meetings
with the idea of coming in as pre

would murder them all, which is ab

harm them; but knowing that, they
hope to throw away their arms ana

the rest find they arc not killed, there
will be a general rush to

Wreck a Passenger Train,
Twenty-Two Were Instantly Killed
and Some Burned Alive.
Mkmpiiis, Dec. 28. A special from
Birmingham, Ala., says:
Fiends In human Conn wrecked the
Birmingham Mineral passenger train
No. 4, at Cahnbu riyer Bridge, 27
miles from here, at 7:50 this morning,
and 22 Uvea were lost.That number of
bodies have been recovered, and fur
ther search may swell the llstof dead.
The wreck Is regarded as almost cer
tainly accomplished by the removal
of a rail on the middle span of the
trestle. This derailed the traln.whlch
caused it to fall down the two spans
and precipitated it Into the river, 110
feet below. The wreck was the worst
that has ever occurred In tho state,
and the survivors are so few and so
badly hurt, that- they are unablo to
give any detailed description of how
It is-not -known and may never bo
ascertained just how many passengers
were on the train. Most of them
were miners and residents of nlntng
townslnthls district who hud round
trip tickets, and were returning to
their homes along tho line of the
Birmingham Mineral road.
Conductor Kennel, who probably
know better than anybody else as to
how many passongora woro aboard, la
dead. It is thought, however, there
were not exceeding 25 or 30.
TheJMlneral trains operate over the
Southern railway's Brlarflcld, Blocton
& Birmingham branch, under a con
tract arrangement. Six miles south
of Gucrncy is tho Cahaba river, a shal
low mountain stream, which has a
depth at this tlmo of about three or
four feet. This river Is spanned by
an Iron bridge, with wooden trestles

and was regarded as a yery saro Biruc-
Tho main span and the span Just
beyond It. both made of Iron, gavo
way nud precipitated tho entire train
into tho river. The engine landed on
Its side, almost at right angles with
tho track. The cars plied upon each
other through the main span.
The entire wreck took fire soon
afterwards, and was rapidly burned to
the water's edge. Nm& persons alono
escaped alive from all who went down,
