Tin Inv.i'i. Completo details of on engage
lni,t a fc'rv.lnva ago near Celba Mocha hnvo
been received. The Spanish wcro led by Col.
.Udraand the Cubans by Dr. Pedro E. lletan
cotnt. llrlgodler of the patriot army. The en
gngeuient. according to the official Spanish re
port, was an unimportant skirmish. In hloh
the Government losses amounted to only seventy-flic.
The facts are as follows!
Early In Dcconiber J.teut.-Col. KaoulArango
with '.'00 Infantry joined a band of 100 com
manded by Major Loreto Escobar. Tho whole
fores was umtcr tho orders of Dr. Ilotancourt,
who lo 1 a cavalry force of somu "00 men. The
three I uban leaders held a conference to acres
en the best way of Attacking tho column of
Col. Aldea, which they knew was operating In
' tl.o neighborhood. Tho coufcreucv wns held In
the hills of H Purgatorlo. and It was agreed
that l.ctiin;ourt, with Ills cavalry, should goto
' -, the sugar c.tate. Amoroso, where the column of
AlJca was duo to nrrlvesoon. At the samo t lino
Aratigo and Escobar took strong positions In
the htlls. IntrenchlnE their troops In such a
manner as to catch tho Spaniards between two
fires.
The plan was that Detancourt. after a llrely
attack at Amoroso, should retire to the hills as
If in panic, bringing the Spanish in their pur
suit to the spot where the Cuban Infantry
awaited thera.
Aldra's column, starting from Cabezas, ar
rlvtJ at Amoroso, as was foretold to the Cubans
by tbslr spies, and Dr. Iletancourt made his
attack as planned. Hut when he retired to the
! hills, leaving two men and soYoral horses dead
on the Held, the Spaulards, either frightened by
the unexpected charge or understanding that
llelaucourt's Idea was to lure them Into a trap.
Instead of pursuing the Cubans rollrcd to tho
town of Cetba Mocha.
!)) passed without action, and It was well
past the middle of December before the Cubans
could carry out their plans successfully. After
alone rest Col. Aldea received orders to move.
Asioonnsbe left Celba Mocha the Cubans, In
small bands of cavalry, began to harass the
Spanish vanguard, composed of sixty men of
Sibanllla's guerrillas. Tho main body of the
Spaniards was 000 Infantry. In the middle of
the column was Col. Aldea with his stall.
'. TheSalanlllamen followed tho Cuban bands
, to the trenahes. These had been rearranged,
now numbering twelve and forming two lines.
In the spaces left between each pair of the first
six the other six had been dug some twenty
yards back. Dr. Detancourt, with sixty cav
alry. was concealed on the right side of the
1 trnche. behind a hill.
When the Spanish vanguard approached the
first lino of trencnes the first volley of the
Cubans disabled all the cavalry and dispersed
the guerrillas, but Immediately after the column
of Ahlea made a gallant attack with fixed
baronets, coming almost up to the Cuban line.
The Cubans stood In their positions, and their
volleys made terrible havoo In the column,
obliging It to retire. CoL Aldea then tried to
recover his dead and wounded from the field,
aivanclng with fourteen men to rescue them,
lie then approached, firing into the Cuban
trenchta, until within a few paces of the forces
of Col. Arango, when another volley from the
Cubans silled the fourteen men and wounded
' Aides, who was saved from capture only by a
bold advance of the rest of the column, which
surrounded Lira.
At this moment Dr. Detancourt appeared with
his cavalry, charging with machetes. The
Spaniards formed In a square to repel the at
tack, but it ere dispersed and obliged to flee.
After this triumph, Detancourt gathered again
all hit forces to end the battle with another
iharge. CoL Aldea formed another square at
the very gates of Celba Mocha. Detancourt
made his second attack with conspicuous suc-
1 ceii. and the Spaniards fled into the town In
complete disorder.
The Spaniards lost more than 180 killed. Of
the SaUnllla guerrilla only three men were
left. Thirty Spanish woundod. left In the camp,
were treated by Dr. Detancourt, who Is a skilful
physiclau, and were returned to Col. Aldea at
Ceiba Mocha.
The Cubans lost only six dead and Ave wounded.
Among the wounded are Capt. Fernando Dingo
and Lieut, Aurello Dlan, both of Dr. Betan
court's staff. Major Kduard Hosell had a nar
row escape, his horse being killed in the first
, charts of the Cuban cavalry.
The Cubans captured 130 rifles and a large
quantity of ammunition. The fight lasted from
10 In the morning until 7 In the evening.

1VI11 Sail Tor London To. Hay to Helena
Ivory, Alleged xlynamlter.
Assistant District Attorney John F. Mclntyre
will sail for Kngland on the Campania to-day to
assist lu defending Kdwnrd S. Ivory, the aliened
dynamiter, who will bo put on trial In London on
Jan. 11. Mr. Mclntyre cleaned out his desk In his
office yesterday and then made nut his resigns,
tlon, but did not send It In. He was In a very
embarrassing position. On the one sldo he was
belug Importuned to sail Immediately for Lon
don. On tho other hand there were rertnln cases
on his calendar which required his personal at
tention. District Attorney Olcott had treated
htm so kindly that he was willing to do any
thing In his power to assist the now District
Attorney.
lie cabled to London to Inqulro if the Ivory
trial could not be postponed. A cablegram came
last night from Ivory's counsel, who is a son of
Lord Chief Justice Russell, ssylng that the trial
could not bo postponed. So Mr. Mclntyre will
sail on the Campania to-day, with six American
witnesses. About resigning he will do whatever
District Attorney Olcott suggests. He expects
to return from Kngland by Feb. 1, and the vases
In which he Is concerned hero could be post
poned until that time.
' I was engaged bv the I'nltrd Irish Societies
of the United States early In November." he
said, "to go to Kngland and help defend Mr.
Ivory, who Is charged with bringing dynamite
into Kngland for treasonable purposes. We
have been making a thorough investiga
tion on this aide, and I nm convinced
that Ivory la not guilty of the
charge. We bolleve that the informer
Jones. 'who was Mint here by the Ki.gllsh Gov
ernment to watch the Irish societies could not
get ny real evidence, and so ha made, up this
cae. Thero seems to be a disposition on tho
part of Ivory's enemies to make a martyr of linn,
since he is the only ono they could get hold of,
and to convict him nt any cost. It Is a pecu
liar case, and we have great odds aealnt us,
because It will be hard to get a Jury of Kngllsh
men who will not be greatly prejudiced again. t
Ivory from the start, ltut we have wltnt es of
our own. and we have such a good case that we
believe wrn will win It."
Mr, Mclntyre added thnt he was going over
In the capaclt) of advisory counsel; thnt tho
member of Parliament from Trinity College,
Dublin, whose name he could not recollrrt hi ,
the moment, would hnvo the examination of
witnesses before the Jury, hut that he MniM-lf
might be permitted to conduct some .if ihe ex
aminations. Not being a member of the Kne
Hull bar. he can go before, tho Jury only by
courtesy: but he believed thut this would be
accorded him.
Since Mr. Mclntrre's connection with the Dis
trict Attorney's office he has acted as prose
cuting attorney In fill! hnmlcldo cases, getting
483 convictions of murder and manslaughter.

that he had very little hope of tho successor any

hoped, he said, that the fact that hn was going

The Cuban Are to lis Allowed lo Choose
Council or Administration, but Most of
Ita Aeta Are to Ite Huhjeet to the
Approval or the Ministry at Madrid.
Washinqton. Jan. 1. The effect of the re
forms proposed by the Spanish Government for
Porto Hlco. when extend d to Cuba, as Is pro.
posed when tho Insurrection has been brought
under further control, will be to creato threo
series of administrative bodies tn the Island, In.
dependent of the representatives of Cuba In the
Spanish Cortes. The voters, under n system of
limited suffrage, are already permitted to
choose the Hoards of Aldermen of municipal
Itles, and tho Mayors are to be chosen frdrn
these hoards by vote of their members. The
next body In rank la tho Provincial Aesem
bly, of which there Is only one In Porto
Rico, but ono for each of the six prov
inces of Cuba, The functions of the
Provincial Assembly are largely united with
those of the proposed Councilor Administration
In the caso of Porto Rico, because there Is but
one body. 'Ihe Council of Administration will
be nn Independent body In Cuba, nnd will for
the first tlmo give tho Cubans a largo share nf
control over their Internal domestlo concerns.
The home Government will retain rontrolof the
Inws levying taxation, and will reserve the right
to review the budget of appropriations, but the
appropriations will bo made by the Councilor
Administration, subject to tho approval of tho
Ministry nt Madrid.
The Spanish Government does not propose at
present to widen the limits of tho suffrage,
which extends to persons paying n combined
tax of $ 5 and to several of the learned profes
sions. The reforms In contemplation for Cub
aro largely those which were embodied In the
decree of March lo. 18IIA. but which have tint
been put In force because of the Insurrection.
I luiuges which have been proposed in this law
will reuulre to bo submitted to tho Cortes at
their meetlngln thesprlng. but It Is not dnuhted
that the plans proposed by the Ministry will be
accepted.
Sorter de Lome, the Spanish Minister Resident
here, furnishes the following ropy of n tele
gram from Foreign Minister Tetuan:
" In the Council of .Ministers presided over by
her Majesty the ljueen Regent, a royal decree
was signed which applies to the Island of Porto
Rico the laws of reforms voted In the Cortes on
March IS, lrlDS.
"The preamble to this decree Is of the great
est Importance because of the statements It eon.
tains regarding Cuba. It begins by explain
ing the reasons why the reforms aro ap
plied to-day und whereforo this has not been
done before; among other paragraphs it
contains the following, whlih. owtug to their
Importance. I copv In their entirety:
"Mil tho actual circumstances the Govern
ment considers that the proper time has
arrived for glslng tn thn world ample
proof of Its firm resolve tn fulfill the
engagements voluntnrllr contracted by
the nation by implanting nnd carrying
IntorlTict In Porto Rleo the reform of the sys.
tern of government and civil administration
voted by the Cortes, and sanctioned by II. M.,
and which, conveniently enlarged and extended,
will be applied In due time to Cub.
"'These amplified reforms can be partly put
Into practice by means of the power pos-se-sed
hy the Kxecutlvn liovernment and partly
will require the sanction of Parliament. Tie
Government Is rnt.li.1ent that it will tint en
counter Insuperable obstacles tolls rapid action
lu tills sense. Linking to the patrlotlo uniformity
of oi.lnlnn respecting the fuudameutAl Ideas
which underlie the application of the reforms.
'" Ilrlefly, the law of reforms voted by the Cor
tes and sanctioned by Ihe Crown, which Is to.
day tnbu applied to Porto Itico. will form the
foundation stone of the now rtglme; but
an additional decree, account nt which
will be given to ihe Cortes, will simplify
to such an extent these reforms that
ngenuiuo home administration will be. consti
tuted In nnr Antilles, In the first Instanre for
Cuba, but to be extended tn Porto Rico as soon
nnd at the same time us it may be possible to
apply It to the formrr Island.
