Havana, Aug. 29. Senator Do!,

conclusion ol a conference with Presi

On account ol tne insurgents wn
ngness to quit th field, there will be
no further enlistment.
Havana. Aug. 29. At tbe moment
today when tbe government wa issuing
its proclamation offering pardon to
rebel wbo would lay down their arm.
iU forces were dealing the moat tailing
blow that ba yet been struck against
tbe inaorgent in the field. For seve
ral days it bad been stated tnat uenerai
Guzman' iorce of imurgenta, wbicn
wa variootly estimated at from ZOO
npward, contemplated an attack on
Cienfuego. Colonel Valle, with a de
tachment of rural guard, wa Qis-
patched to Cienfuego for tbe purpose
of engaging Guxman and breaking op
tbe band. The encounter 01 tne two
force resulted in tb wont disaster
which the InsurgenU have austained np
to thi Mm. Tbey lost 17 men killed
and many wounded, while the lo to
be government force waa one man
killed. The government is without
further particulars of tbe fight.
That tbe Insurrection is in a uasy
condition seems to be a Uct, although
tbe end may not be a near as tnem-
bar of the government force prole
to believe. Pino Guerrera, tbe insur
gent leader operating in the province
of Finar del Bio, in a aigned tatement
telegraphed to tbe Associated Free te
nigbt, declares that be 1. as determined
as ever that tbe laat presidential elec
tion shall be annulled before there can
be peace in Cuba.
That Guerrera' s force of 2,000 men
il well armed and supplied with food
and ammunition is amply verified. Ita
greatest drawback is now lack ol mon
ey, but the people of the western part
of Pinar del Kio are lurnisning 11 wiin
all the supplies needed, taking in re
turn therefor order on the "Cuban
government," and in many case re
fusing to accept any consideration.
Rapid fire gun and considerable
war material arrived today for tbe gov
ernment, and more is expected irom
It I reported that Guxman' force.
tbe vanguard of which was defeated by
Colonel Valle near Cienfuego, number

Tbe report 1 undoubtedly exaggerated.

VALDEZ FORESTS BLAZING.
Dense Smoke Biota Out Sun
Steamers Slow Down.
Vancouver. B. C, Aug. 29. On of
the lamest fires wbicb ba occurred np
coast this season 1 now raging in Val-
Steamers which arrived in today
were somewhat delayed by dense smoke.
and passenger say that in the vicluity
ol the (cene of the fire massive clouds
of dark smoke entirely obliterated all
view of the flames.
Valdes island is covered with a mag
nificent growth of firat-clas timber.
and many local timber holder have
large claims there. The ore pres
ence on tbe island ha caused anxiety
in local business circles, which is all
the more heightened by the fact that
nothing can atop it. Rain 1 badly
needed along the coast.
Fire Warden McKay stated today
that the recent big bush fire near
Gower Point bad dona more damage
than was at first supposed. While tbe
fire deatroved a large tract of timber. It
also burned the bridge and destroyed
tbe roads in the vicinity, and the
people who live within the territory on
which the timber was destroyed will
have no access to the water until new
roads and bridges are built.
"The people in the vicinity," said
Mr. McKay, "will be practically desti
tute this winter unless something i
done very quickly to relieve them and
to aid them in building new roads and
