character which has mado all Cubans rejoice.
There has been fierce fighting In the Hub!
21111s of I'lnar Del Rio. In fact, the most
sanguinary b&ttlo of tho war has boon fought,
anil, though Weyler's censor at Havana has
toned down Ihu reports into mere scrimmages,
about S.OOO of Weyler's mon were killed In two
III days and tnieo as many wounded.
Weylor went Into tho field with 35,000 men
m In throe columns, one of 15,000 under himself,
VJ one of 10,000 under Gen. Kchncue, and a third
of 10,000 under Gen. Munore. They found
B Gen. Macco Intrenched In a crescent-shaped
range of hills, and to Qen. Munore was assigned
tho dnty of routine him from this position,
' while Gen. Echaguo was to etccuto a flank
movement and cut off Maceo's retreat.
If Gen. Munore arranged his battalions and gal-
1 lantly went forth upon tho field, but when at
I I tho foot of tho hills tho Spaniards were met with
I 1 a withering firo that cut caps In their ranks.
. Km Maceo's men shot from behind rocks and trees,
) and gradually gnvo way before the Spaniards
jl 111 who. encouraged by what they thought to be
I H victory, hotly pursued.
ml I Suddenly a deafening explosion rent the air,
H 9 and a sccno followed somewhat like tho mine
1 horror at Petersburg during the civil war.
jUjI Horses and men were blown high In tho air
i J jl and fell to the earth dead and mangled. Tho
JfH-; , ' dynamlto mine was touched off by John Linn,
Jp$ I ' ' formerly of this city, who Is Maceo's eleotrlclan.
II ( 1 ! Maceothen let loose his dynamite guns pro-
Hi pared by Linn, and more havoc was wrought.
In the mlno explosion Col. Reyes says that
H ' Weyler lost TOO men killed and S00 more In tbo
jH charge that followed, besldos 1,000 wounded.
IH Next day Moceo, knowing of the reserve force
H fender Weyler, retreated to even a stronger pc-
HJ litlon. There he was attacked by a column
IH knder Kchague, who was roundly thrashed and
H arlrcn from the field. losing 800 men killed
Uj besides 1,300 woonded.
!H In this fight Echogue lost a leg, whloh was
HJ iorn oil by a dynamlto bomb. Ills men be-
H camo panic-stricken. They feared another
Hj mine and would not respond when a second

(MV Next day Maceo retreated again, manoeuvring
fH all the while to entrap Weyler Into a field that
Hj had been honeycombed with dynamlto under

Hi Weyler heard that there was danger of an up-

Tha.T.eBlslntlnn Proposed nnd Passed nt
the Last Heaalon.
Wamhsotom, Not. 211. A glance at the his
tory of Cuban legislation proposed in tho last
session of Congnss goes to confirm the Impres
sion tlint without ndecUlvo bnttlo In Cuba tho
altitude cf this Government tonard thntcoun
try will not be radically changed In the ap
proaching session. Tho records show that no
less than thlrty-thrco different and distinct
declarations regarding tho struggle In that
Island were presonted In tho first session of tho
Fifty-fourth Congress. Oftheso. eighteen orig
inated In tho Sonato nine Joint resolutions,
two concurrent resolutions. And seven slmplu
resolutions and fifteen In tho Hotiso of Repre
sentatives three Joint resolutions, three con
current resolutions, and nlneslmple resolutions.
Of all these, only ono successfully passed all
Btagosof consideration nnd received the signa
tures of tho President of tho benato and the
Speaker of the House. That was tho concur
rent resolution Introduced l-y benatur .Morgan
from the Commlttco on Forulgn Relations,
reading as follows:
Ittiohtd. That tn tbe opinion of CoegreM a condi
tion of publlo war ealits netween tbe itort rnnunt of
Spain and the Hoerutnenl provilaltned anil for nomo
time maintained by force ot arms by the people of
Cuba, ant thai tbe Untied Alalia of Amerha thuuid
maintain a strict neutrality letweeu the cunienttnif
power, according: to each all tht rlchta of belliger
ents In tbe pons and territory of the united Statea.
While this was under consideration Senator
Cameron moved an amendment suggesting that
tbe United States should Interveno by Us
friendly offices to put an end to the struggle. In
lieu of which the Committee on Foreign Rela
tions submitted tbe following, which was
adopted aa a part of the original resolution.
fr'arrd further. That tlio frlondlr offices of the
United States should to orTerrd by the I'reiMrnt to
ib spanlih Government fur the recognition of tha
Independence ot Cuba.
When the matter got Into the House the fol
lowing substitute for tho benate resolution was
Betotvrd, That. In the opinion of Congress, a state of
publlo war exmts In Cu(m, the parllea to which an
entitled to belligerent rights, and the United Mates
should observe a strict neutrality between tbo but
lUie rents.
Reautlnl. That Congreas deplorea the destruction of
life and property cauned by trie war now waging In
that Uland. and. believing that the only permaeens
solution of the corneal, equa ly In tna Interests of
bpaln. lha people of Cuba, anu other nations, would
be In tbe eatabiutiment uf a goTrrnment by tr.a cholc
of tbe people of Cuba, It Is tlio Keuse or Congress that
tha Uorernmeut or the United Mates should use Us
good oRlces nnd friendly iiifluiiee to that end.
ffefofrrd. That the United States has not Intervened
In strugrtes bvtwern any European Uort rnmenta and
tnelr colonies on this continent, but rrom the very
close relations between the people of the United
btates and those of Cuba, In consequence of Its proa.
IniJtjr and the eateatof tba commerce bstwern tbe
two peoples, tbe present war la entailing such losses
upon the people of the United states that conxress Is
oi opinion that the Government or the United Mates
sbould De prepared to protect ln legitimate Interests
ot our eltlxens by Intervention, If necessary.
In conferenco, however, the Senate proposi
tion was agreed to and was finally passed.
It was freely stated about the Cnnitol last ses
sion tbatthe failure nf Congress to take a more
decisive stand than Hint outlined in a concur
rent resolution, which required no Executlvo
action, was duo to the expressed dclre of Presi
dent Cleveland that nothing should bo done
which would embarrass or constrain his Ad
ministration in any way rrgardlmr the Cuban
question. So far as can be lenrtied. thero has
been no change In the vlows of the Executive In
this regard.

The Game Was llttweea Tiro Teams or
Ilnya tletween 1st nnd n Years-Itne
Itnd the nail, IVna Tackled, nnd
Ilia Opponent Piled Down Vpen Him,
At tho very end of the football loaion has
eomo the only fatal accident ot the game In this
vicinity. Waller B. Rue. 10 years old, Hying at
720 Carroll strcot, Drooklyn, was killed yester
day noon at a match game In Prospeot Park,
Ilrooklyn. The police say that he was acting aa
umpire, but two boys who wore In the gam say
that he was ono of the players.
The game was betwocn tha second or Junior
team of tho Manual Training Sobool nnd
a picked team calling themsolvos tho Eurekas.
All tho players were boys between 14 nnd It)
years old. Young Hue, who wns n freshman at
the Ilrooklyn High School, played, It Is said,
with tho Eurekas. The game began nt about
half past 11 on Field 27 of the parade grounds
in Prospect Park. It was holly contested, and
during the first half tho play was hard and fast.
It was early In the second half that tho acci
dent occurred. Whnt seems to be tha most
tlkoly explanation Is this: Tho bnll was punted
nnd tho catch missed. Instantly all tho players
plunged after tho ball, which went bounding
ovor tawntd tho sldo lines. Ruo roached It
first, picked It up. and started toward the op
ponents' goal, but was tackled and thrown,
falling n Itli tho bnll under him.
"Down," ho cried ns ho fell, but either the
other players did not hear him or were too ex
cited to heed, for they piled on top of him In n
heap. When the heap finally disentangled
Itself. Rue lay still on the ground.
" Ho's got the n lnd knocked out ot him," said
ono ot tho players. "He'll be nil right In a
minute. Here, help me got him on his feet."
Tw'o or three of them lifted tho boy td his feet.
He seemed to make nn attempt to stand, but his
knees gavo way and ho sank down again,
" He's getting black in tho face," crltd one of
the boys. "Look at htm. He's hurt badly.
Run for n doctor, somebody."
Wood noneared on Rue's lips, and at this the
other players, thoroughly frightened, scattered
to look for help. One of them found Park Po
liceman Chutnley on duty at one of the other
football fields in the Park, and brought him to
tho place. After one look at the boy, tbo police
man sent In an nmbulanco call. Meantime some
ono else had got a tlavg and was trying to make
tbe Injured boy swallow Home whiskey, but Rue
nas qulto umnnsclous. He never regained con
sciousness. On the arrival of an ambulance
from the Seney Hospital. Dr. Otis, who wns In
charge, pronounced tho case a very seriods one.
" He has a hemorrhage from tho lungs and Is
liable to die," said the ductor.
Tho boy died on the way to tbe hospital, with
in fifteen minutes after ho was hurt. This acci
dent put n stop to the game, and tho players
scattered, en that when the police came to make.
Inquiries they could get only the siatemeuts of
cbancn spectators who had remained tn the
vicinity. From such Information they made
nut that Rue had been umpiring the game, and
being unable to get out of tbe way of a rush bad
been butted In the stomach by one of the run
nors who was chasing the ball ns It rolled to
ward the sldo line.
After the body was taken to tho hospital It
was remoied to the home of the parents, upon
a rormlt helng ned for Its removal. Tho
police made inquiries from the dead boy's
mother and sister, but they could tell nothlug
except that Walter hail gone out that morning
to play football, as be had frequently done on
other mornings. A statoment was made to the
reporters by Clarence Dasulne, of 302 Sixth
avenue, Drooklyn. who played on the Manual
Training School team.
" Rue was playing with the Eurekas," he said.
"Iltwu tackled while running with the ball
nr.d fell; bat when the taokler got up Rue lay
still. .We supposed he was winded, and as we
went to nick mm up he half rota and fell down
again, 'I ben we saw he was badly hurt und we
ran for help."
William Drill, another member of the team,
made a similar statement. Eugene Harrison of
0S7 Tenth street. Ilrooklj n. w ho also played In
the game, gavo a somowhat more detailed ac
count. "Tbe ball had been fumbled and everybody
was chasing It. Hue mnde n dash for It,
ricked it up, and started to run, but was thrown,
think he called 'Down,' but everybody piled
onto him, and I suppose, the weight was what
hurt him, for ho luokrd like a man that has
been choked when we tried to get him up. The
game was uot a rough ono. It was Just llko any
other nf the gamos we have played. Ruowasu't
umpiring at all. H played through tho first
half, anil wns hurt Just after the second half
began. I don't think anybody In particular la
to blame."
Rue's father Is Frederick Rue. a bookkeeper.
Wnltur was tho only son. An older brother
died a few years ago of consumption, and it Is
likely that Waller's lungs were weak, although
lie was a sturdy hoy. fond of rough sports. Tho
police are Investigating tho case, and arrests
may follow.
'I wii players In the Clarendon nnd Hercules
football teams wore disabled nnd had to he
carried olf tho field during the gama on tho
Wllliamsburgh Atlilollo Club's grounds In
Kliiglaud nvcnuoesterday. Thoy werol Frank
lUnrle. Ill tears old. who Hies In llensonhurt,
and Tracy Low. aged 10. of 230 South Fourth
street. Tho former received a severe bruise on
the hip nnd Low's shoulder was dislocated.
There was also a mishap nt the game of the
Polytechnic hojs and tbe High School boys nt
the Eastern Park. James D, Gill, In years old,
who was playing half back on tho Polytechnic,
was severely Injured in a tisckle, one of the
High School boys striking hi in on the head with
his knee.
He wns unconscious when carried off the
field, und it was at first supposed had sustained
concussion nf the brnln. llefore his removal to
his home, which was said to be In Plcrrepont
street, accompanied by his two sisters, a doctor
who had been In attendance on him said that
tho injuries wero less serious, consisting mainly
of shock.

Ther Go to Newark for Fun nnd Arts .'JM
Trapped nnd Tnmed br tbe Police. jh
Tho Perry Guards of this city let t town yea- :1U
terday loeliow tho people of New Jersey what H
a good old-fashioned target association looked -JU
like. Tho guards numbered 170. They were H
attired In blue flannel shirts, woro their trou- B
sers belted, and carried old-fashioned muskets. $m
They marched through Newark shouting and H
whooping and passed the day in Caledonia - J:nM
Park. At night when they started for home JffM
their ranks showed wide gaps. '(JJ
Wbon the guards arrived at the Market 5J
Street Station of the Pennsylvania Railroad
they were received with marked courtesy. ,f'.
Tbey Attempted to go Into the station bv the mm
same way as the other passengers, hut were In- 3flM
formed that spoclal arrangements bad been t'fmm
mado for thorn, and were led to the enclosure vH
through tno big iron gales. As soon as they "?
w ere sat oly enclosed tweuty-flvo Newark police- ',
men, under the leadership of Sergeant Noll, mm
appeared, and then iho visiting New Yorkera mm
saw thnt they had been trapped. )
Tho reason wns that on their way ont to New- ifJB
ark In the morning the guards had refused to 3M
give up tickets or pay fares on tbe train. Tht) )
conductor could do nothing ngalnst 170 turbu- IB
lent men. and thoy got off tho irnln at Newark m
without paying. The railroad officials notified siB
the police, who lay in wait fur them, and v'
trapped them as related, ttfl
The police Sergeant ordered tho leaders of tho ft IB
guards to give uo their tickets to him. The men 5B
refused at first, but the Sergeant said that un- tB
less the tickets were given up at once tbe whole j
iot would sleep In a Jersey Jail. There waa JIB
morn wrangling, but the upshot was that tbe tlm
guards gave up their tickets. A depressing jM
change came over tho guard and they boarded i
the train without a whoop. M
