Doa't Count Weyler Accused of Trj-
ins Cheat Cirujeda Out of the Glory
of Killing Maceo In the Philippines
Madrid, Xe.c. 15 The report that Cap
tain General Weyler ias ordered proceed
ings to be taken against Major Cirujeda,
because the major after the death of An
tonio MaceO, -went to Havana without
the permission, of his superior officers, is
causing discontent here, owing to the
popularity of Cirujeda. Although the
ministers retain reserve on the subject,
it is stated that the cabinet may consid
fer this question, and it Is further staiel
that the ministers may also discuss the
execution of General TVeylpr's plan of
campaign, which is criticized In certain
quarters. According to surface indica
tions, Captain General "Weyler will focji
he relieved of his command in Cuba. The
Hscontent withWeyler Is noticeable.even
In the government organs. They say
that instead of going to Havani to re
ceive an unmerited ovation, he ought to
"have continued the military oir.itions
In the proince of Pinar del Rio.
. A bad impression has also been creat
ed here by the dispatches of the Spmisa
correspondents at Havana, announcing
rfhat General "Wevler has suppressed all
disnatches referring to the ovations in.
Spain in honor of Major Cirujeda. It i!
supposed that the captain general's ae
ilon was due to jealousy and it is cur- j
rentljr reported that the government is
disposed to replace "Weyler by General
Marin, now governor of Porto Rico.
IMPARCIAL DENIES IT.
Madrid, Dec. 15. The Imparcial says
that the ministers have no knowledge of
Cantain General Weyler having taken!
any action against Major Cirujeda, and
i-egard it as being improbable. The Im
parciaPalso says that the report that
Captain General Weyler is shortly to ba
replaced is not confirmed.
It has been decided at the cabinet
council to purchase the British transport
Prince of Wales.
Officials here declare no memorandum
on the subject of President Cleveland's
message will be sent by Spiiin to the
United States. They add that Senor
Canovas, the premier, will approach the
question of reforms in Cuba only when
the revolt has been almost crushed.
WHO MARIN IS.
Washington, Dec 15. General Marin
has seen considerable military service in
the cause of Spain, having participated
Jn the last Cuban war. At that time he
had for adversaries on the insurgent side
pome of the men figure prominently in
that service today. General Marin came
to Cuba permanently with Martinez
Campos -when the latter was appointed
raptain general of the island. He acted
as captain general when Campos was
In the field against the insurgents and
when Campos was recalled as the result
of the dissatisfaction of the Spanish gov
ernment with his campaign, Marin took
Jiis place during the interim between the
departure of Campos and the arrival of
Weyler. With the advent of Weyler,
Marin was appointed governor of Porto
Rico. General Marin is about 50 years
STIRS UP SPANISH WRATH.
London. Dec 15. The Times today,
commenting on the Cuban situation, ex
presses the hope that the Spaniards "will
continue to disregard the vituperation of j
the jingo seimtors and abstain from imi
tating them," adding: "The American
government maintains a correct and neu
tral attitude, and as long las it does so
Spain can afford to smile at Senator
Chandler's off-hand recognition of the
Cuban republic.' '
The Globe, this afternoon, says:
"When these wild men rave at England,
British feeling regards them as amusing
Junatiees, whose grotesque antics do not
carry danger .toelther country. But the
Spanish are more easily inflamed to
anger, and there is some danger of Spain
falling into the trap when the piratical
ILaurada reaches Valencia. Spain has
endured much contumacy from the great
lepublic; but there are many indications
that this passive submission to insult
will not last much longer. It would be
well, therefore, for the Washington gov
ernment to place restraint upon Senator
Chandler and his colleagues. If Spain
decided to uphold her honor by arms a
naval war might have results not at all
agreeable to -the American chauvinists."
IN THE PHILL.IPINNES.
Madrid, Dec. 15. A dispatch received
here from Singapore says that the na
tives of Mlndano Island, one of the
PhKlipinne group, have revolted, and
that many of the native troops aie de
serting to the insurgents. It is further
stated that the situation at Manilla Is
full of anxiety. Bands of insurgents
frequently approach that town at night
time and fire volleys into the place. A
dispatch to the Imparcial from Singo
poore admits that there has been a. gen
eral massacre at Cavite. the fortified
6?aport town of the Inland of Luzon. It
ndds that 150 prisoners revolted, killed
teix soldiers, seized arms and tried to
raise the native Inhabitants against the
carrison. Continuing, these advices say
that the revolt failed, the revolters were
shot down in the streets and a general
hias;acre followed during the night.
Scores of corpses were picked up and
many of the prisoners who were recap
tured, were shot the following morning.

Washington. Dec lo. Carl Hurst,
United States consul at The Prague, re
ports to the state department that a
marked change in the railroad tariff on

stop altogether shipments of 'been

strain men are scarcely responsible for
what they do. For years the writer
rolled and tossed on the troubled sea of
sexual weakness until it was a question
whether he had not better take a dose
of poison and thus end all his troubles.
But providential Inspiration came to hi
aid In the shape of a combination of
medicines that not only completely re
stored the general health, but enlarged
his weak, emaciated parts to natural size
and vigor, and he now declares that any
man who will take the trouble to send
his name and address may have the
method of this wonderful treatment free.
Now when I say free I mean absolutely,
without cost, "because I want every weak

pose as an enthusiast, but there are

RHODES' COUNTRY HOUSE.
London, Dec. 15. A special dispatch,
from Capetown 'says that Colonel Cecil
Rhodes' country house wag gutted by
fire early this morning.
It may be presumed that the "country
house" referred to in the above dispatch
is the South African "palace of the ex
premier of Cape Colony. The mansion is
delightfully situated and has the quaint
hrchitectural characteristics of Dutch
edifices of about 200 years ago. Belong
ing to the estate is a well-stocked zoo

miles long, which cost Mr. Rhodes over
J500.000 to establish. This beautiful
park is open to the citizens of Cape

New York, Dec 15. A Newport News
special to the Herald says that as a re
sult of the experiment of the board
which is investigating battleship steel,
nearly the whole amount now in the
Newport News Shipbuilding company's

have been so surprisingly unsatisfactory
that the investigation has ben much
more extensive than at first planned.
The tets may go beymd the Kentucky
and Keasarge steel although the con
tract requirements for the battleship
Illinois are not so rigid as the contracts
for the Kentucky and; Kearsarge. yet
the results of the tests have been so
startling that is probable that, the board
hvill be ordered to investigate the Illinois
steel also, in which case work on that
vessel will be temporarily suspended.

a statement from the postoffice depart
ment at Washington that "a fraud or
der had been issued by the postmaster
general against H. S. McFall, of the
firm of Lee, Clark & Co., of Buffalo, N.
Y. Investigation of the facts demon
strates that the order was Issued by the
postoffice authorities owing to their
having confused Mr. McFall with anoth
er man of similar name. The statement
that Mr. McFall has been arrested and
imprisoned was also a mistake on the
part of the postoffice authorities. It Is
understood that the postmaster general
on recommendation of the postoffice au
thorities at Buffalo, will cancel the or
der at once. The Associated Press re
grets that the mistake Teferred to should
have resulted in the transmission by it
of anything derogatory to Mr. McCall.

progress in the construction of vessels
had been made, that delays in building
them had been reduced and the tend

however, was necessary and the naval

M. Lockory's motion that the govern

a vote of 335 to 73.
During the course of a long speech M.

Sleeting or the Otilcers, to Derlte a Com
Washington, D. C, Dec 15. A meet
ing of the officers and executive commit
tee of the Bimetallic union began here
today, Its purpose being to devise ways
and means to continue work in behalf of
the free and unlimited coinage of silver
at the ratio of 16 to 1, and incidentally to
arrange for the resumption of the publi
cation of the National Blmetallist the
organ of the union. It is stated, however,
that the paramount business of the meet
ing will be to arrange the details of a
convention of silver leaders throughout
the country, with a view to the organiza
tion of a comprehensive organization in
behalf of silver.
It is stated :o be the desire, at Iast of
the officers of the union, to call together
in this convention th officers of ail the
state silver organizations, including the
silver Populist leaders and the ablest,
generally, in the silver movement and
perfect a plan of operation to be begun
In the near future and continue at least
through the campaign of 1S00. It la
argued that the want of organization and
funds were the two causes of the defeat
of silver in November la:, and that the
evil of disorganization as least can b
remedied by beginning the preliminary
work at once and continuing- until the
structure Is completed ia all Its detail.
