accordlng to the ctory told hy the motorman. lt

car had what is known an a alngle motor.
"I was not golng at a rapld speod." sald he;
"certalnly not over ?ix mlles an hour. I dld not
have a heavy loao* on board. but the car began
to Bllp. I oould do nothlng wlth the brake, aa
lt would not hold. I was powerless. Of courae,
you aee that the car went faster at every turn
of the wheela. and when lt struck the curve
nomethlng had to go. I was frightened at what
happened. I knew, I would bo arreated, and I
lan home to tell my famlly of the accldent. bo
my wlfe would 60. be worrled at my absence.
When I returned to the wreck lt had been al?
most clear.-d away. Then I went to the pollce
atatlon and gave myself up. I do not conalder
that any motorman on the llne could have pre
vented the accMent, surely not when the ma?
chlnery went braok on him at a down grade."

the reault la that many 8 good man is dlscharged

Fllel O. Pler?*, of No. 1SS St. John'fl Plac??,
^vho Ib chalrman of the Press mmmittee of the
Cuban headriuartors. rald laat, night that he
had wlthln th. last few rlays recelved a letter
from some frlend.a in Santlago. Cuba, aaylng
that tho ,.,-ople of that clty were in ronBtant
fear that some frlghtful catastmphe would over
tako them, and that they would nlmnst prefer
dr-ath to the preaent Btate nf affalr. there. A
throat has been mnde 'hat the enttre clty wlll
ba bb.wn ut.. and th-y are in i>erpetual fear of
an awful fate,
"VV.-ll," rai.l Mr. Plerra to a Trlbune reporter.
"stich a thlng Ifl not altogether unllkely. but
lt wlll be a last extremlty. We have got to
get rld of the Bpanlarda aome way, and extreme
meaamrea may be taken some tlme ln thr> future.
"i underatand that th.- Bpanlarda are prep-ar
ing to send *o Cuba ahout forty thousand truope,
The Qovernment is In ?uch a atate of fear r.f its
men tbat it is gr.lng to shlp them wlthout arms
or nmmunltlon. and s.-tid along a war vorsel
t,. quell anv outbreaks that may take place
among the men. They are afraid of tr.titlny.
Tlny are .shipping thelr rllbs ln a separat.- v.-?
s. 1 That ira a v.-ry good conditlon of affalrs
for ua, for It can br- Imaglned hr.w these aol
moat of them young men. tom from th.-lr
home* and prcssr-d Into aervlce?wlll flght fOT
Spaln. They are all men wlthout mllltary
trafr.lng. with the exception of a few oftlcers In
each rcginient, and have never shouldered a
tnusket.
"If the Spanlards are actlve, we are equally
fo. Preparatlopa are being made for the next
campaign, aml General Gnmez ls now organlz
ing another army of invaslon. and expecta to
be ln Matanzns and Havana agaln in Septem
ber. That is hia programme, and he does not
roncoal it from the Spanlards. Ho lets them
know where h? la golng, aa he dld previously.
but he wlll not tell them what route he wlll
take,
?The prospect la that in a few months there
will not be a Spanlard In the Interior of the
island. They will be forced to vacate all the
strongholda they occtipy now, and will be driven
t'. th-- acaphorea. They mav hold out for a
llttl" whlle, f,r we hav?n't tho artlllery that wo
would llke Aa far as ammunltlon ls concerned,
th- Cubana are pretty well provlded. If they
had 10,000 or 20,000 more rlfles, there would be
a man for every one We would have 100,000
rn.-n lf we had ih- nrb-s. There are at the pres
mt time In Cuba 20,000 men wlthout rlfles wh)
would be wllling to go to the fr mt at any tlme.
"We bava a great advantage uf the Sranlards
on the Island l.e.ause we do not have to buy
provlslone. We have- got all th- cattle, and the
t-.-giilar agricnltural centres BUpply all the vege
tables we need, whlle the Bpanlarda have to
get thelr food from thr- outalde. We have taken
greai care thal the aurroundlnga of th.- large
citiea thal are occupled by th'- enemy have been
all laid waate. They are ualng condenaed mllK.
and -annot obtaln any freah milk at all. ln
Santlago they are paylng lo centa for an *gK.
Tl-rtdltlon of the people in the large citles s
growlng so extremely bad that the Spanlards
are allowlng them to Jotn the Cubana to uave
them from Btarvatlon.
"What the Bpanlarda are looking for now is
Interference on the part of the Unlted States.
They thlnk that they are g,.|ng tr. have a per
forma war wlth this country, In whlch cas
they ran wlthdnaw from th* flght wlth honor.
Bul they -III Ire greatly mistaken. for when
the Interference comea the enemy will have to
wlthdraw In dlagrace. ??_,*?
-Thr- wealthy Bpanlarda In Cuba are entlrelv
dlaheartened The beal proof of this fact that
we hnve i* that we have recelved vialta from
Beveral , ..mmltte.-s who wiah us to accept a
form of Belf-government almtlar to the Canadian
?vatem We told them that we were not for
autonomy, and that what we wanted waande
nendence I do not belleva that Bpaln wouW
^e? agree to auch a form of goirrnnvnt. bu
the gentlemen who called on ua were cdnfident
that they could Influence the Oovernment to
^?Itfla an outrage that the Spanlsh Oovern?
ment Bhould go Into a hom.- ns it doea and take
fr,. ft the young men of th* fam ly. nnd make

the gr.-at.st .ympathy. Even the women in
