ST . Oardkxas, Proylnce of Matanxat, Cuba, Jnlr
ii 7, It U not an easy task to start from th city
if' of Cardenas on th north coast otlfatansa, en
,' horseback and meet Oen. Gomes on the east
r side of the river Ilanabana. To do this the
J correspondent of Tnr Bow traTelled south from
June 20 to June 29, dodging the many Spanish
columns which swarm In tho prormoe of Ma
il tanxas. Had he met, for instance, the column of
Oen. Molina, nothing conld hav saved htm
tt from being; killed on the spot In respect of
tp his cruelty, Molina can onlr be compared
I ' with Weyler himself. No human beloB In
JV the path of Molina escapes death If he
f. Is not a Spanish soldier. Flames and blood ore
i always left behind by the-sangnlnary column of
tr this butchtr, who, after one of his marches of
p twoorthrcadays, retnrns to Matanra report
$ ing his list of assassinations and robberies a
, irreat victories over the Cohan army.
i) Bat taking; the route from Gardens to the
it - cast the correspondent was not o likely to find
5' Molina, who generally operates more to the
't, west, and close to Mat&nus cltr. Still, the
i ether Bpanlsh columns aro-not less to be dread
fr ed, and no friend of Cuba cares to meet single
banded the guerrilla forces of Irregulars, who
f' are chiefly composed of naCtresot theCanarr
h Islands, and who ore committing; the -most ter
j' title outrages In this war.
; After a journ ey of this kind, one can easily nn-','-
derstand how Gen. Weyler, In spile of his 200,
f, 000 soldiers, is outwitted by the Cubans. The
'i Bpanlsh guerrillas, in detachments of '100 to 200
't' men, march before tho colurani.lesdlng the way,
$ but never moro than half a mile from the main
& force. Each column is composed of at least 3,000
r to D,000 men. A column nnd the guerrilla ad-
ranee guard march slowly, especially when they
"I have their artillery with them. Furthermore,
U the Spanish soldiers, when they march, nre
always talking loudly to each other, and
ft on a quiet day, with a favorable wind, the hum
; of conversation Is heard at a distance of two
3 i miles, giving nmple notice of their approach.
To tho burs of their talkinc is added the ding-
Ef dons of tho tin pitcher, plate, spoon, and fork
', that each soldier carries, and which mikes
tnuslo at each step. Along; distance away the
: approach of a Spanish column sounds Ilk the
5f coming; of a large herd of belled cattle. Inad-
ditton, the flock of vultures above tho column,
if; which in Cuba, as throughout the tropics, al-
& ways follows crowds of men moving; through
'V tho country, is lnfalllblo erldcnco thatthe Span-
c lords arc near at hand.
Jc The Cubans, who movo in far smaller bands,
;Jy and who are almost all cavalry, before they see
f" the Spaniards know of their approach and can
V either preparo an ambush for them or avoid an
Ig' encounter at their will. A man on a good borer,
5 and familiar with tho country might pass his
B whole life dodging the Spanish columns in Cuba
5. without ever felling Into thedr hands.
Tho river Hnnabana. called also Jatlbonlco, is
fc- the south boundary line between the provinces
i;.i of Matanzas nnd Santa Clara. I reached it on
K Juno 27, near sunset, but could not cross be-
jj? causa the Spanish column of Vizcaya. 6',000
; strong, was enenmped on the north side In
1 Matanzas. We ware three miles from the town
v Of Amarlllas, and I and my guide concealed our-
-. solves a mile from tliotownlnathlckmanlgiaor
i forest, from where we could easily and safely
,. wntch the movements of the Spaniards. During;
g tho night we slept soundly. Next morning; at 5
ifj o'clock tho Spanish trumpets calling; every man
fli to his place, or diana, as the Spanish say, awoke
6 us. Tho column was four hours crossing the
p. river to Santa Clara province on the railroad
p brlJirc. An hour l.tter we also crossed the same
''( bridgo with our horses. When we reached the
?. Other side the column was disappearing;
toward tlio nortbeaett. Tho men of Viicoya
.'; xrero eolni; to meet Oen. Gomes and a
, few moments after thcUast Spaniard had dlsap
S pcarcd from view, we saw the first scouts of
h Gen. Francisco Carillo, commander of Gomez's
X vansuard, coming from the southeast. One of
thorn, recognlzins us, ndvlsed me to wait there.
Over 200 Cuban cavalry croimed the river into
!'i Matanzns, and nn hour later Carillo's force,
y 1,100 roon, nearly all cavalry, arrived.
jj Gon. C'orrillo nould not ho recognized now by
S thoso who saw him in New York iu 1895. He Is
f twico as fat as ho was then and wears a long;
i' beard. Shortly after Carrlllo arrived Maximo
)' Gomez, with a force of only COO cavalrymen,
Jt also reached the bridge.
1 I could not speak to Gomez until late in the
-! evening. Carrlllo crossed the river into Matan-
r, cas provlnco and ho romained there until night.
?' At last Dr. Fcrniln Vnldea Domlnguez, Gen.
:- Gomez's secretary, led me to the General's tent.
Gomez now looks very much o'der than he
!$ really is, and he ntoops a little more than he did
1 a year ago, but lie appears as strong as ever
:il and his eyes sparkle with all his old energy.
r-i At first ho rufusod to nay anytlilng more than
i) what he had already said in his last letters ad
g; ' dressed to Toinus Estrada Palma, the Cuban
(W Delegato In New York. Dut when I spoko to
Sv him of tho report circulated in Havana by
J Weyler that ho and Gen. Callxto Garcia wore
nt hitter enemies, he said:
J' "That is tho only sort of war that Woylor
Itnows how to innke awarofllos. Ills evident
'- failure before tho wholo world, when he prora-
& teed to overcomo tho revolution in loss than a
Z Tear, compels him to employ falsehood in order
L to raiso tho hopes of Spain and Induce the
i Bpanlsh Government to uiortgngo and sell tho
fj last properties of thu nation to send him money.
If Garcia and I wcro divided our campaign
i. would not be so effective as it is."
?' 'To the question how long, in his opinion, the
' war would lost, he answered:
I 'T never like to poso as a prophet, as
5 tho Spanish Generals do. Martlnoz Cum
sV pos said that he would v.Ln after thn rainy
season of 1895 was over. lie did not.
1; Weyler said the same thing a year later. Hid
fk prophecy also was worthless. I can only say
'j that Cuba will be freed by this war and that I
I1' believe the and is near. Now we aro moving to
f tho west, and bow far west wo shall go I cannot
;V say, becausothat depundsupon the nece&sltlcsof
the campaign. I will march to the very gates of
t Havana if necessary to force Weyler to bring
back to the west the formidable army he has
taken to tho eaau If I succeed in this I will be
-v satisfied for the momeut.
-. "The groat object in this war la to tire out the
f Bpanlsh until we get our opportunity to strike a
r bis blow. If I ha.! 80,000 rifles and five good
i cannon I could take Ilavant, but without theie
U munitions I must wait. Not having such a large
nnd well-provided army as Hpnln has put in the
t' field, time is my great resoiuce. The result is that
.'. In six months of osmpUgnlng In Santa Clara
'(, province I have disabled by this plan of warfare
: moro than 25,000 Spanish soldiers, including
; those killed by my men and those killed by the
tf cllmato in the constant movements I have
V obliged them to make throughout the provluoe.
If Can you tell me In how many of the big battles

Madrid, June 80. El Impartial publishes a
letter from Se&or Bllvela criticising both the
Government and the manifesto of the Liberal
party. Inferring to the United Btates and
Spain, BeQor Sllrela says!
"Ourmlitakendlplomatlo action relating to
Cuba resulted from a still greater mistake our
isolation from other nations, as a result of Can
oval's neutrality policy. I know, of course, that
even if our position In Europe were different,
neither Ilnssla, Germany, England, nor Franco
would lend us their army and navy to crush tbs
insurrection; but we should stand in a better
position toward the United Btates nnd her evi
dent rmrpose to intervene in our affairs.
"Wshave yielded our rights of sovereignty
on land and sea, consented to shameful intru
sions, and paid unjust claims. What have wo
obtained in exchange for all this t
"Th Government's reply Is that If tho con
trary policy had been followed we would havo
confronted more serious evils and perhaps war.
This is not so. The energetic maintenance of
our rights, refusal to pay unjust claims, nnd
resistance to humiliating impositions would not
encourage the United States to attack us. A
rupturo of relations, such as was threatened
with Germany over tho Corollno Islands would
be much preferable to the shamo In which wo
now live. Our policy of concession and amiabil
ity diminishes our prestige without diverting
the tendenoy of Anglo-American plans. Aro we
to sacrltlce men, money, nnd honor, only to find
at the end of two or threeyears that the gteatcat
cnemlBof our rule In Cuba are not those w ho
toot, up arms age Inst us there ?
"Premier Canoras has often snld: 'I shall
make evorr effort which tho country Is ready to
Indorse. When tho nation becomes tired or is
annihilated, I shall retire to private life.' This
is making sucoess hinge upon chance. The uttl
tude of the United Stales has boon purposely
Ignored, Yet Premier Canovns was warned in
time against the Impending eonfliot. Witness
the memoir wrltton by Gen. Polarleja shortly
after his return from Cuba in 18U2. Hut tho
memoir was plgionboled. It Is now too late to
remedy the matter, but It is never too late to de
fend our prestige end honor. If we do not
obtain the respect which is due us It is better
that wo roine to a rupture with th United
States. Too continuation of tho present stato
of affairs would bo nn atxtlcnllonof our rights.
" Our future military action In Cuba must be
decided after a close study of our rosonrces, our
Interests, and the feeling of the Cubans, bearing
In mind that our Interests will permit us to con
quer a rebellion, but never to subdue an entire
peoplo ngainstlts will.
"Autonomy in Cuba would be but the pro
logue to complete separation in a short time,
but if autonomy ran be made the basis of a
compromise toward peace, it should bo accepted.
There Is only a short rtlstnnio betneen there
forms ulrcadr gruuled und autonomy, so short
in fact thit it Is not worth the 11 fo of a soldier
or the continuation of tho war for one diy
Premier Canoras has said In conversation
with an editor of La Correspondcncia de Ea
pafln: "Our relations with the United States nre not
the same us with Germany in IS 85. Germuny
was not then able to act against us. but the
United States could do so nt once by eendinK to
Cuba her army and navy. Besides, tho United
Statrs constantly protests her friendship for
"1 cannot accept Sil vela's plan of ascertain
ing whether the Cubans are in sympathy with
us. In order to determine whether the war shall
go on, in accordance with his belief that a
people should not bo subjugated against its will.
There Is no Instance of such a proceeding In the
history of the relations between nations and

the Cuban Army and wia iu high favor with
Gen. Gomez on account of his Intelligence and
bravery, has been assassinated by the Spaniards
in the saino manner that Charles Govln was
murdured last year in tho provlnco of Havana.
Govin and Gordon landed together in Cuba in
the same expedition early In 1800.
A few days ago Gordon accompanied a band of

A brave Cuban offlccr and an Intimate friend
of Gordon, Gustavo Menocal, was also one of the
party. As soon as the attack began the Spanish
guerrillas of Cartagena, 200 strong, commanded
by Major Ilraullo Coteron, arrived and over
povrrred tho In'irarnis.
Menocal '.nd A'.ltl succeeded In making their
escape. Menocal was pursued to the Damujl
Itlver, which ho crossed and arrived safely ttt a
strong Cuban camp. But Goidon, surrounded
by 100 Spaniards, surrendered, and gave his
name and nationality.
When Ilraullo Coteron learned that the pris
oner was an American he said to his men: "Kill
him Immediately. It no let him go to Havana

Gordon was hacked to pieces with machetes,
and tno other prisoners were also slain.

The career of Nicholas O. Creede began early,
for, as he said, "when ho was knee-high to
a duck" he began to rustle for himself, and the
earlier rears of his life wero as activo as exist
ence in the West at tho time ho lived thero as n
youth could make them. He was born in Fort
Wayne, Ind but when a child his parents
mo ed to Iowa, and from that tlmo ho mado bis
life what It was through his own efforts. At
3D ho was born In 1343-ho went into the
army, hut servlco In tho Quartermaster's de
partment, where ho started, nn lets to his
la to than the moro exulting duties of a scout.
Bo for seven years he served with a band of Paw
nco Indians in campaigns ngnlnst tho Sioux
and other lio'tilo tribes of tho Northwest, then
n part of the country that was wholly wild.
During that time Creede. who w as rocciring the
pay of a First Licutonant in tho regular army,

ug these years he had livod almost constantly
in the open nlr, on horseback In the day time
and under a tent at night. When be bad iln
txhod his service as a scout he returned to the
It was not to bo supposed that such a life
could prepare a man to seltlo down, and Creeds
went back to Colorado in 1870. Then tho gold
ferer in the Black Hills was ou, and miners were
busily prospecting In the very regions through
which Creed had ridden as n scout without
suxpectlng thn existence of tho wealth In tho
ground beneath him. He bad no sooner come
under tho influence of thn mining craze thero
than ho decided thnt this was tho career iu
which he could bes' continue the way of life he
had beirun as n scout,
NewMexicn was the place he selected for his
first venture, hut neither the people nor the
country were to his liking, and ho was soonback
again in Colorado. For eight years he wnn
tiered ovor the mountains, and It was not until
the end of that time that ho madohis first strike.
He was alone for thirteen days In what Is now
known as the Monarch district, and the nearest
person to him was twenty-five miles away. Ho
called the voln be had discovered tho Monarch
end sold It for a small sum.
Not long afterward he struck another vein,
called It the Hononr.a. nnd toldlt (or&20,000.
With this money Creede set out tor a tour of tho

As early as 1873 there had been in this vnlley
a mining ctmii caS'ed Hunnyalde, not far from
thi- present city of Cicedo. A great deal of
n.oney had been Inetrd by California capital
ists In an attnnpt to discover leads thorn.
Creede's doterniliivtlon to stick to direr and
prospect no lonfrr for gold had led him to this
plaoo, and ho was iittruniental in adding much
to the value of tho mines In that region hofuro
he uncovered his first vein there. Creede de

within twen'y miles of whvro bo made bis great

Prrrsnuno, Pa,, July 13. Thoro will bo no
arbitration of tho coal miners' strike. Every
body knew that nono waa po.'ilhlo so long as W.
P. De Annltt has nothing to arbitrate. Tho
attempt of a New York paper to hold Mr. Do Ar
mitt responsible for tho fate of arbitration when
arbitration was not bslloved in by tbo parties
interested, nrouied that man's Indignation. He
called on tho Slato arbitrators at tho Sovcnth
Avenue Hotel today, showed them that there
were no differences bntweon him and his ora
ployocs, and therefore there was nothing to ar
bitrate, and submitted a statement of his posi
tion. Ho Impressed tho arbitrators. Thoy saw
thnt unless tho abuses ho complained ot wero
remedied thero could bo no pormanent solution
of tho strike
To-night ths local miners' ofllclals called on
the State Arbitrators, who havo been aent hero
from Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. They ad
mitted that Mr. Do Armltt'a position wns right.
They professed themselves ns ablo to bilng
about an agreement with other operators to
abolish tho abusos. Thoy said that with that
ngrrement In forro not 00 cents, but $1 a ton
might bo obtained by tho diggers for coal,
"They are not far apart," said Oen. Little,
Ohio, Chairman of thn arbitrators. "Ibellovo
that thoy can settle this strike among them
selves. If by our Intervention wo can bring
tbem togolhor we shall bo satisfied with the
result of our efforts, evon though thoy did not
end in arbitration."
Mr. DoArmltt explained his position to the
arbitrators, and mado tho same complaint given
by him in Tnn Son In an intervlow thrco yoirs
ago. Ho said that he then explained thnt for
years the minors hid complained of tho
company store, dlshonost wolghts, scrcons that
wero not uniform, and they had admitted
that on operator not possessed of theso ad van
tuzes could not compote on even terms with
mine owners who possessed tbem. Ho had no
company store, but paid in cash every two
weeks; gave honest weight, became his miners
had a check weighman, ono of their own num
ber, at the weighing tipple; his screens
were built according to law. Ho was
therefore entitled to a 10 per cent,
differential In wages. In 1 804 he had agreed to
pay tho simo wages us his competitors on con
dition that producers of 07 per rent, of the coal
mined In this district shoull sign an agreement
to abolljh tho abu'os complained of. An effort
was made, but tho prodnreri of only (17 per cent,
signed the agreement, When asked ns to his
remedy for the present strlko in this district,
Mr. De Armitt sold:
"Thore is nothing for mo to arbitrate. My
men are working. If you gentlemen will proc uro
the signatures of tbe producers of the 07 por
cent, of tho coal mined in tho district to an agree
ment doing nwny with Iho abuses I havo men
tioned and the miners have always complained
about, then I will agree to pay for mining coal
the eamo wages tbat they pay. But I will not
meet the other coal operators In conference; I
will not meet ItatchforJ, Dolau, or Warner, tho
miners' ofllclals. I am satlstlod for yon to trans
act tho business."
Tonight Patrick Dolan, District President,
and William Warner, District Bocretury of the
Minors' Union, mot the arbitrators, uen. Lit
tle repeated what Mr. De Armitt hid
said, nnd Sir. Warner ' then gave his
side. He said that once before 07 per
cent, of tho operators had signed an
agreement like the ono npokon of by Sir. Do
Armitt, but that the latter had tried to include
cool companies not In this district and hud re
fused to abide hr the agreement.
"Do Armitt s position is tho cause
of all the trouble," snld Warner,
"If he can bo satlstlod, thore will be nn more
strikes. Ad it is now, even it tho oth-ir operators
wore to grunt our demands, it would lie only n
m trernt lime until w tges would be reduced
ajriln. Our sin-cess would be only temporary.
XViitro striking for higher was-c-s because our
miners arc xUirviug."
l!en. LIMle then wanted toknow if Do Armitt
should write down the namos of the mines
whlrh, ho says, ale tn t he t'ittaburg district, and
if th ownnrs oi tiT por cent, of these mine
should agree to alllh compmy stures, to In
stftll check welghti ien to pay wajrs everv two

Mr. Winter said bo believed the slgnitures
onuld bo obtained, with a good deal of work tad
tho oxpvndit ire of tlmo, ptovided the arbitra
tors would guanntco that Mr. Do Armitt would
abide by tho iigreeinent.
" I believe Mr. lie Armitt is sincere" said Gen,
"We had It settled oner; but bo backed out of
the agreement," slid Mr. Warner.
When iho onnfei eiicu adjourned it. was agreed
that Warner and Dolan should talk the mutter
over to-morrow nnd Bee the arbitrator ugaln.
Tho latter will also talk with otber operators.
The responslbilltv for a prompt settlement of the
strlkolrest now with UoAnultt's competitors,

tine Iluitoru Transacted at the Steeling,
Detroit, Mich., July 13. As tho National
League of Republican Club does not formulate
policies, tt is perhaps not surprising that mora I
of tho wheel horses did not attend the National
Convention to-day. With tho exception of Got.
Tanner of Illinois, they seem to have left most 1
of the work to younger men. The day was de- 1
voted mainly to getting acquainted. President I
Woodmansee hod a. few words to say in opening 1
the meeting, but tho delegates were all waiting 1
to see and hear Gov. Pingree, who was known a f
a great vote getter, and Incidentally as a mo- I
nopoly destroyer. Tho Governor was Intro-
ducod to welcome the delegates and spoke very
briefly. Ho sailed into trust and said:
"Wo hear a great deal said about the horn
market. It is the most valuable market wo ,
have. If I wero going to destroy that market ;
entirely I would favor continued formation of ,
trust and combinations of capital. This would j
result in throwing about half the workingmen '
out ot employment, of wiping out the small
concerns and destroying individuality, which if
another name for patriotism."
Here Is where Gov. Pingree ran into a hor
not'b nest, and although he was liberally applaud
ed lt wa not just what the delegate expected,
and when Coh Duffleld aroso to giro the cUy"!
welcome ho lost Uttl time in veering around so
ns to gtvo the Governor a broadside.
Col. Duffleld, unlike Gov. Pingree, epoko with
out manuscript, and considerable of his talk wa
a direct contradiction of things said by the Oov
ernor. Without going down below generali
ties, he said those wero dangerous men
in tho country who seek to fo-nent
strife between capital and labor. 'Ihero
tiro demagogues in all parties, who trad
on ths feelings of susseptiblo masses. If they
would have the making of tho laws tho time
would come when lt would be crime to accn
mulate wealth, and when tho workinrmsn
would be debarred from saving enough to buy a
home for bis wife and children.
