with men who had been Identified for years

It was half past 8 when the distinguished
truest ot the evening whu were to occupy plncea
on the platform appeared at the entrance on
the left of the stage, headed by Charles A. Dana.
Instantly the audience was on Its feet, shouting
and screaming a welcome. It was severul min
utes before there was anything lUe quiet, and
k then llwa for only another moment, for as each
suett walked across the platform to his seat lie gut
a noisy and entirely separate wclcomo. Mr. Dana
occupied the central seat In tbe front row. Be
elde him sat the Hon. V. llonrke Cockran. The
meeting was opened by Dr. Illcardo Gaston, a
w "arm-hearted, hot-tempered, and enthuilastlo
j apeaker.whoset the audience to cheering the very
Brat sentence he uttered, and kept at It almost
continuously until he had finished his speech,
which was In Spanish.
Dr. Gaston concluded his address with the In
troduction of Sailor .Manuel Sangnlly. The
Bettor was down on the programme to speak
fifth, but he had to leave tbe meeting early, and
for that reason the first place was given to him.
ille spoke In Spanish, and on occasions he had
the audience worked up tu a high pitch of ex
citement. His speech was a very long one, and
there were some in the audience who were so
anxious to hear Mr. Cockran that they almost
lost their patience.
Among other things Senor Sangully raid
that the crime commuted on Nov. 27.
1871, was the natural consequence of Spain's
policy In Cuba ever since tha discovery of the
( Jsland. Spain waa merely anxious, be 'said, to
. - 'maintain faer supremacy at whatever cost, and
V not even the fear of God could be Inspired Into
V ' those who went to the Island to become rich.
' He added:
Ttir CRIUE or TWESTT-TIVX TEARS AOO.
" Should anyone dare to object In order to vin
dicate the name and honor of Spain, that what
happened was a lamentable misfortune
originated by tho confusion Into which
exalted patriotism was thrown by the
erroneous belief that tbe Ill-fated stu
dents had wounded through their alleged
desecration of a martyr's tomb feelings
r , which cause men to grow wild. Should any one
I J dare to say so, I repeat, I would answer that to
tay such a thing is to He: that the authorities
f bad fully four days to And out the truth; that
truth was manifest to all whose duty
waa to make sure of what had really
happened. Hut none of the authorities would
even listen to any one willing to testify the
, truth, for the only man who attempted to do It
A waa at the point of being butchered."
lilt. COCKIiAN'o WA11M OIIEETINO.
It waa long after 0 o'clock when Mr. Cock-
J ran was Introduced, and the reception he cot
exceeded any tbat had been given during the
evening. Handkerchiefs and dags were wnved
everywhere, and everybody ehoutod a welcome
calculated to stir any orator. He was Intro
duced as tha Demosthenes of the East.
" Fellow cltlzena of the United Mutes. Fellow
nympathlzcra with the causu of liberty all river
the world," he began. "Hecent event havo
lent tn thla gathering an Importance mm 1 did
not accord to It when I waa tlrat Invited to come
here. Tho news of the last few days Is signifi
cant. It proves to ua that at the prt.ent
, moment there la a grave crisis in Cuban ntluir".
$ a crisis that must ho approached with Hie
spirit of calmness and of deliberation.
II I believe that this Is a lime when inflammatory
utterances should be avoided; but It Is also a
J time when plain words should h spoken. Inm
ono of those who believo that the function of
I speech Is explanation. In thla country no man
I noed speak In public against his will, hut when
ft, be does choose to addre.s Ills fellow men In a
H time like this be should apeak In a spirit of
honesty ana of candor, I may not speak to you
to-night the language of diplomacy, but I prom.
lse you I shall speak the language of truth."
Hers came an outburst of applause, almllnr to
h the one that had followed the Introduction of
f thespeaker. Itwasoneaf aacorethat fullowed,
The eloquence of the speaker time and again
brought tbe audience to its feet, and again and
again almost a full minute elap.ed before ho
could resume. He swayed the; crowd with
his words. Occasionally applause would start
before he had finished a sentence, and on thexo
1 occaalona the mere holding out of bis hand
m would bring complete silence until he had
l ' the TncE Pimrosg or the mbetino,
' Mr. Cockran aald that the gathering would be
a useless one If It were merely to recall hitter
memories. But his purpose wan more than to
recite the story of wrong and outrage and fill
1 tbe hearts with resentment.
It was not only to sympathize with the snr
f ) rows of a sister country, but It wa: to consider
f whether the conditions that existed In that
K country Imposed any obligation on the United
E Btales to Interfeie in the name of humanity
and in the name of civilisation. Ihe
story of the crime that the meeting waa to
commemorate, when stated In the almulcat Ian-
guagepoaalhle. was eo atrocious and an lucnn-
ilatentwlth clWlUrd government that the mind
of civilized man could senrtely graap It. Then
he told the story of the shooting of the eight atli-
dents twenty-five years ago for tho alleged dua-
eoratlou of the grave or h ripunlah nllior. He
H told of the happenings aftcrirurd. how the Inno
H cence of the eight victims of the barbarous
H courts was proved, and how Spain had acknowl.
M edged her guilt by ponnlttlng tho erect Ion of a
I mnnument In Havana bearing tha simple In
,H sorliillon, " Innocent."
iH "That monument, rising to heaven," he said,
"bearing that inscription, proclaims tn all the
H world that the (Jorrrnmi'lit thut iloea nntexer-
M else Its functions to prevent murder, hut rather
H to iierixtualu it. Is a hint on uivlllratloii,"
H At the concluelou of thatsentunco there rnme
V) another wild outburst of npplaurr, und liers
",' and there In the audience rimn leaped upaa hlph
IM as their seats und shouted even above the
JH tumult made by the rest of the crowd. When
H he could proceed .Mr. Cock run said;
B "This Is not tbe concern of Cubans alone, but
1 it Is the concern of civilized government and of
H civilized man who desires to preserve Intact the
H civilized law."
Then he said tbat the moral law was binding
lit upon nations as well as upon individuals. The
d moral law, he asld, waa decreed In Heaven lung
before It was decreed by muu, und It was tho
law of Ood that there must be reparation.
Again there was wild applause, A little fur-
ther on Mr. Cockran said;
H rXTV. lit' NATIONAL TVIUNNV.
H "It Is because the law of (ind declares that
tbei e shall be reparation thut. w hen humun life
I lnuken, we know that that (iovernmi-nl ahull
mm lint exist which txercl.es lt fuiictluu to pur-
1 putrate murder. It will be driven from the
earth before an indignant public iiinulou."
sTsf In Hits country, Mr. Cuckrau said, tliere are
V I aocUllei to protect helpless auluials. We
wouldn't even kill n dog here. Shall we. who
would not permit the Hlnughlrr of dogs within
our sat", bermlt tho roaa.acrc of Christians at
our doors? There were cnea of "No," "No,"
and another outbreak of applause tbat
lasted a fnll minute. Again Mr. Cockran
said that no nation can remain Indifferent to
outrages perpetrated against civilization her
self. A Oovtiriimont, heaald, that la capable of
tho outrage which was bolne commemorated
would have been a cruel Oovernmenteven In
the sixteenth century. In the nineteenth cen
tury 11 was Intolerable.
TIIJ8 NATION'S XlUTV.
ne said that henna not criticising the Gov
ernment nt bpain at home but tho Government
of Spain In Cuba. He Insisted that this nation
bad a duty to perform In thenamoof civiliza
tion and In the name of humanity. Wheth
er or not ne had done anything to jus
tify ,hope, whether or not we had encouraged
the Cuban patriots to believo that thla
(lovernment would extend a. sympathetic
hand In the present struggle, the Cuban patriot
had been encouraged by that belief; he had
taken up arms against the foreign foe. He had
deliberately declared tbat tho result meant
his emancipation or his extermination. At this
declaration the audience came to Its fret like
one person. The people dancod up and down ns
they shrieked their upplnuse.
It waa Idle to say, went on Mr. Cockran when
he could proceed, that this (Jovernuient waa
not responsible for tho hopes of the Cuban
patriots. It had tho right even now. If It chose,
to lefuse to extend to thoso patriots a helping
hand. It bnd a right to remain Inactive, even
though crimes against civilization Itself wcro
being perpetrated, but it owed It to the wnrld.
It owed It to the patriots, nnd It owed It to
Spain to define its attitude, so that they should
understand the conditions with wbOh they
' If the Cuban patriot Is (o bo exterminated."
he said, "and wo aro to permit that extermina
tion, then In heaven's name lei us not prolong
his misery by encouraging him to activity. If
the Adintntitration cares to declare for his ex
termination let It snv so, and then take the
judgment of the American people on that deo
laratlou." A nmn In the rcarnf the hall yelled: "Let
Drover Cleveland take bis shnroof tho curse."
There was a moment of applauae, and then Mr.
"No. uo. my friend, I know tne American
people will bring no curse on thla country, or on
any of Its citizens, by a fatluro to do their duty
to (!od and to man," said Mr. Cockran, and tho
applause that followed was deepened.
"Aealn." Mr. Cockran aald. "all I ask la that
this Ciovernment shall Interefere not for con
quest, but for emancipation; not to annex Cuba,
but tu liberate It,"
CUUA'S CKKTUItT Or MISllfl.K.
Mr. Cockran said that this country's mission
was not to aggrandize Itself by conquest, but It
was to conquer the world In trade. The
Qoternment of Cuba, ho said, waa a (lovern
ment of tyranny pure and simple, that for a
hundred yearn It had depended nbanlutely on
the will of a military dictator; that the history
of the Island had been a history of revolutions
put down with barbarous brutality, until now
tbe Island was reduced tn a desolated tract,
disturbed only by tho crack of the assassin's
He didn't believe In wars. He had always
thought that the money spent for a great navy
was money 111 spent, but If the posarsaion of an
American navy now should lead the President
of the United States todeclarnthat tho butchery
of Innocent Cubans should stop, he would
believe that thla navy of ours bad dono more
good In the vi orld than any navy that had ever
been built by the hand of man. He believed
that tbe request of the United States would be
respected by Spain. That request would bring
glory to the American flag.
He believed that if ten ships of war should
enter the harbor of Havana tlylne the American
flag and the American Admiral should Invite
(Jen. Weyler and his executioners and the en
tire paraphernalia of the Spanish Government
to come aboard and take a trip to Cadiz or
Barcelona the Invitation would be Instantly
accepted. And for a minute after this declara
tion the audience waa fairly beside Itself.
Knterlng the harbor of Havana tn liberate
Cuba, he said, those ten ships would be Invinci
ble. This nation would be Invincible, but to
enter the harbor to annex the laland would
mean merely America taking the place of
Spain. He thought that the first day
tbat this country entered on a war of
conquest would be the first day of the decay of
the republic. The sword of war. he said, should
never be drawn for conquest, hut It should
never be sheathed when robbery and pillage
were being perpetrated on this side of the At
lantic. He didn't want Cnba to become a part of tbls
couutry. even In tbs event of her winning lib
erty without thla country's aid. until she had
tasted and tested all the sweets and bitters of
Independent life. If, after the lapse of time,
and tbe growth that came with experience, .he
should determine to apply for admission to tbe
Union, tnen he waa ready. She would apply
then as an Independent nation.
He asked what Spain would accomplish If she
should win thla fight. She could only estab
lish ilomlnlou over a howling wilderness. She
would choke vegetation with the blood of bet
iXDEVifiTT ron PAIS.
Theandtenca waa almost beside Itself with
entbualaam again. Mr. Cockran aald tbat ha
was willing to see an indemnity paid to Spain
for the loas of the Island, and he was willing to
see the United States guarantee It. He didn't
suppose that was the talk of diplomacy, he said,
but tho diplomacy offthe Old Wnrldhad been
the diplomacy of spoliation and plunder, nml
this country had no part in It- It the United
States did guarantea tbe bonds of Cuha it would
never loae a cent by It. because he knew that
every Cuban patriot would be willing and would
see to It that the drat recelpta of the (lovernment
Custom Home at Havana should be devoted to
tha pavment of the Interest on those bond.
Speaking attain of the duty of this country to
Interfere In the Interest of humanity, he ssld
that this country could not repress tyranny all
over the world, out it should insist that there
should he no tyranny on this side of the
Atlantic, nml when aiy nation aonaht
to transport ineillmval barbarity acrnu the
water anil transplant It on American anil this
nation should atop It. He referred to the atate
menta of Wetler and the Hpanlards that the
patriots were only Imndlta, and ho said that tho
meeting stumped the statements as a base lie.
Ill concluding he aald that If thla co'intry
should Interfere In the struggle and should
force Spaulah tyranny to return serosa tho
Atluntlc. and should shed the mild light
of liberty over a prostrate land and
bring pearo and happlneaa to it. then
clvlli7atlnu would be elevated, democracy
would he: vindicated, republicanism would be
triumphant, and the flag of this country would
forever remain the symbol for liberty and
progreaa In the land.
At tho conclusion of Mr. Cnikran's speech
cheers rang nut again and again, and more than
half the audlenco was on Its feet saluting him.
There were crlna for Mr. Dana, and he was in
troduced. He said In part:
1111. DANA'S Sl'EKCII.
"My friends, I shall not attempt to add to the
magnificent presentation or the cauae of Cuba,
the causeof humaultyand thecauseof America,
that has been delivered to-night. There la only
niio thing that I wish to say: that In Amer
ica, In the United Statra, the citizen have one
wish, one hope, and one prayer In regard to
Cuba; that la expressed In those noble words,
Viva Cuba I.lbro!'"
The audience was on Its fret again, scream
ing enthusiastically. There wore shouts from
every part of the hlg hall. "Viva, viva, viva!"
When he could proceed, Mr. Dana said that
the hour of liberty was close at hund for
Cuba. It seemed impossible that it should
be long delnyed. It the Government
of the United Stntes would ponorm
Its duty, and say to the Spaniards tbat
the barbarities that shame humanity In Cuba
muat atop, atop they would, and thut quickly.
The applauae and tho cries of "Vlval Vlvul"
cunx tvii.t, ne thee.
" Hut." said Mr. Dann, "If tho Government of
tho I'ulted States turns Ha back on Cuba, Cuba
will still be free. She will bo free by her uwn
strong arm. bv her rtrong hearts, and by I ho
fertile intellect of her eons."
Tim hope of America waa, lie aald, that the
sun of llberl) would rise upon Cuba to set no
more. That sun. however, ho would iiothnvo
confined to Cuba, He wished no harm to Spain.
After " Viva Cuba l.lhru " he would say also
"Vlvu Kapsna Libre. Sua libra toilo el
inundol" And aa husuld thla the crowd leaped
up and cheered, and cheered again and again,
Mr. Dana started to leave the hall n Minnas
he hnd finished, but ho had not gone half way
acroan the stage when he was compelled to stop
anil acknowledge tbn enthusiastic salute that
was being given. Ho wss followed by CoI.Ethau
Allen and Seller Henrique Jini Vnrona.
HKNOIl HE VAIKINA'K rtPElX'll.
Sefior Enrique Jo6 do Varona, the Cuban
"(Jen. Weyler has forbidden the Cubans In
their own country to honor the memory ol those
who twenty-live years ago to-day were victim,
of Spanish violence. Ho undoubtedly fears that
the public remembrance of that hideous crime

that the tears shed upon the tombs so prema

dally committed by his followers ut the fort

III. fated boys; and ninul the allent und terror
stricken city sensitive soul, will hear the sound
of sighs nml solMinndenaliig into a tempest of
reproach and accusation
" No voice, will recall this year from the plat
forms in Cuba the sorrowful calvary of the
martyrs; but tho sad picture of tbe tremondous
punishment will not the less come tn the mem
ory of all; and the terrible scenes will be re
vived of the drama which tho Impudent ou
Fldltr of one man contrived nnd tha eavago

roar of tho infuriated populace announces that
the tribunal Is assailed by drunk pnntorlnns to
hare the rightful judges replaced by cownrdly
accomplices of the crime, upon whom the
powerof law Is suddenly conferred on condition
that they kill. Tho abominable drawing of
names incomplete the number of victims re
quired by tho tyrants Is recalled, and, finally,
the sinister countenance of the official pro
claiming the nnmes of thoso whu were going to
die before the mob. which then burst into
shouts of wild Joy and frantically asked that tho
corpses be thrown to them as a trophy of their
MEMOItlES THAT WILL HOT DIE.
"The anguish will be renewed of thoeooml
nous days when death-bearing suspicion hung
ovor every CuBan home; when the beardless
survivors of those who had been punished with
death were taken tn Irons through the streets
of the city so as to add to their moral sufferings.
The figure will appear again of that thin old
man, always In mourning and wandering about
the streets, as a vivid and constant reproach of
the Iniquity of man and of the barbarous con
ductor tbe nation which did not know how to
administer Justice; of thatold man who but a few
months aao on his deathbed raised his anxious
voice only to ask if the murderers of his son
had been nlready expelled from tho country
which they soiled with their crime and Insulted
with ttelr presence.
"Thus, the remembrance of past wounds will
add to those of the day, and the feeling will be
Increased. It this be po.slblo. agalnat a power
founded upon crime and by crlmo maintained.
What has tlio tyrant gnlned by his useless pro
hibition T I he able lo extinguish the voice of
conscience? He may, perhaps, havo noticed
among the Imposing tombs nt the cemetory In
Havana the mnnument which perpetuates the
date or tlio Infamous crime. If be hue, the
allegorical figure proclaiming the Innocence of
the vlotlma is sure to have appeared tu him
as an avenging angel, who, like the symbol
of terror-stricken human conscience, comes
forth from the dead past to murk upon Spain's
face the stigma of universal reprobation. The
Infamous representative of Spain refused to
permit that the crime should be commemorated
where It was perpetrated. Let It be so. He hat
not the ower to prevent that It bn publicly or
privately commemorated wherever there Is a
Cuban. We are here as a living testimony or
the Inefficiency of his despotic mandate. We
are here ftiltllling our duty In spiritual commu
nion with the conscience of nil tbe Cubans.
The echo of our voices will reach the ears nf the
Spanish Proconsul as the echo of a curse re
sounding throughout the entire world.
"Why has he not gone further? He might
have ordered the victims' tomb to be demol
ished, their ashes tu be casttothe air. and the
ground where their remains rest to be levelled,
so that all trace of them may disappear. Yet
as long as there are In the world men who love
Justice nnd execrate the work of hate and pas
sion, thero will remain In human conscience tho
remembrance of the event which we commem
orato as a proof of Spain's Infamy."
The night's celebration was wound up with
an excellent musical programme.
A solemn requiem mass was celebrated In the
Church of St. Leo yesterday morning fur the
Father Ducey waa tho celebrant, and a bier In
the centre aisle of the church was covered with
the American and Cuban Hags.
Thero was a large attendance of persons sym
pathizing with Cuba in her present struggle for
liberty. Among them waa Eduardo Laborde,
a brother of one of the martyred students.

Wero in a light Stanhopo buggy, drawn by a
nervous young horse. Vannor drove.
After spending some time In the Park, they
reached tha entrance at Seventh avenue and
110th street. Driving through the entrance
they started, about fi o'clock, on n trip up Sev
enth avenue. The shafts on tho buggy were
attaohed to tbe running gear by two snaps, one
on eaoh side, which closed with a spring, and a
pin holding them to the front axle. While tho
horse was going at a lively gait, the snap on tho
left side gave way at 112th street. The thills
fell to tho ground, the crossbar striking against
tbe horse's hoofs, and frightening It so tbat it
began to run,
Vanncrdld his best to got tho animal under
control, but the crossbar continued to ntrlko It,
and it soon was running wild, Mr. Wallace
took tbe reins when ho saw that his coachman
had lost control of the horse, but he could do
nothing with It. Mounted Policeman Frawley,
who was In the neighborhood, saw the
runaway coming up the avenue, and urging
his horse into the roadwav he rode up
on the rear side of the frightened
animal and grasped the bridle. Inatond ot
checking Us speed, this frightened tho run
away more, and it began to edge toward tho
wcet side ot tho street, pushing Trawley's
horso with it. The light wagon bobbed and
lurched from side to side, and Just as It crossed
114th street Vnnncr was thrown out. He
struck heavily on his bend. Uefore the car
riage had gono half a block further Mr. Wal
lace was thrown out. He fell on his side.
Ily this time the runnwny had forced tho po
llceman's horse across tho sidewalk nnd agalnat
a fence. Fearing that his mount would become
frightened, Frawley Jumped off onto the fence,
atill holding the bridle or Mr. Wallace's horse.
Policeman Houlihan, who bad heard tbe sound
of the horse's hoofs, hod run doe-n the avenue,
and he took the other aldeof the bridle. The
two policemen succeeded in quieting the animal,
and went back to look for the men who had
been thrown out.
Mr. Wallace was conscious, nnd proved to bo
only .lightly Injured. Vanner was Insensible,
and a crowd had gathered around him. Tho
policemen called an amulance from the Man
hattan Hospital, ana the two men were taken
there. Vanner died In a few minutes without
regaining consciousness. Mr. Wallace, who is
a broker at (Ml Hroa.il way, after ho had recov
ered from his shaking up. went tn his home at
62 West Thirty-sixth streot. Tho horse was
taken back to the stables, unhurt.

Tho rcsldenco of II. II. Cannon in Irvlngton,
near Tarrytown, N, Y was destroyed by flro
early on Thanksgiving ovonlng with all Its fur
nishings, tho lntter being valued at $10,000.
The house, which was of wood nnd three stories
high, was worth about $20,000, and was consid
ered to be one of tho handsomest structures In
Irvlngton. Tho flro was discovered about 0:30
o'clock tn the children's play room on the third
floor, and Is thought to havo been caused by a
defecttvo chimney. Mr. and Mrs. Cannon were
away, but Mr. Cannon's son, H. II. Cannon. Jr.,
and his daughter. Miss Gratia Cannon, were at
home, and there was nn assemblago of young
peuple present who woro about to eat tho
Thanksgiving dinner tbat hnd been prepared.
Mr. Cannon thought he heard a crackling
ound In the room above. Kunnlng upstairs,
lie opened the Play room door and discovered
almost all the interior of the room In flames.
He gave nn alarm at once, but before anything
could be done the whole upper portion of the
building was doomed. The are departmentsof
Irvlngton and Dobbs Ferry were summoned,
but to no avail.
The house was built by Mr. Cannon twelvo
years ago, and was prettllv situated lu a grove
of seven acres on Broadway. Tho furniture was
mostly of Inlaid mahogany and was purchased
by Mr. Cannon from John Jacob Astur. There
was also a valuable library. Among tho books
were three given to Mrs. Caunnn two years ago
by Oliver Wendell Holmes. The Interior fur
nishings were Insured for (2,000, which Is far
from covering tho loss.
Mr. Cannon Is President nf the' village. He Is
a brother of Henry W. Cnnnon, the banker.
Hnch lives In Irvlngton, but tbe Irvlngton in
which Henry W. Cannon lives Is in New Jersey.
