-were found dead, having been suffocated during the night The Spaniards, with the object of striking terror among the sympathiz Insurgent Holding Their Own In the SrrniKrlo. "LONDON, Sept. 12. The Times this morning publishes the following from its Havana correspondent: "Careful study for the past four months convinces me that despite serious losses, the rebels are holding their own against the troops. The wealthy -Agricultural districts are completely under rebel control, and the whole sympathy of the islanders is with the rebels. Even Havana, which is more Spanish than any other town or district, is permeated with animosity toward Spanish rule, and is honeycombed -with intrigues on behalf of the rebel lion. "The struggle is prolonged by the Jacility with which the insurgents obtain ammunition and stores of all kinds irom abroad and from every town in jCuba, under the noses of the Spanish officers, with impunity. The seizure of contraband goods is rare. "It is now too late to compromise by granting reforms. The Cuban insur gents would not now accept full autonomy as the price of yielding their arms. I say this advisedly, after a careful examination of the situation from all joints of view. Spain will bo compelled to conquer or to abandon the island. This irreconciiable attitude of the rebels is largeiy due to the wholesale execution of rebels after a summary trial. "Another reason is the hopeiess pros pect of a rehabilitation of Cuban credit -while the island is ucder Spanish dominion, laxation must b3 heavily in-a eased to pay the burdens of the war. Hence people with vested interests prefer the risks and uncertainties of independence, coupled with the earnest hope that at no distant date Cuba will become a State in the American Union."
