he said "On Match 2b 1807. with -IK) men.

In Cabanas 1 firmly believed that both Dacal
loa and myself would be shot. Gen. Pando
at one time came to me and htutod that It I
would accent autonomy my life would be
spared I told him that as a Cuban General
1 should not be Insulted, and ho then said
I mlcht he freed. I was surprlsod when I
heard that I was to be exiled, and protested
aainst nnv discrimination bolne inndo be
tween me and tho other prisoners. My pro
tests were not listened to. however, and I left
Hitana ou the steamer Colon, on Dee. 10.
"On tho oyaeo I hail thn freedom of the
tblp and had very little to complain of. I was
kept nt t'ndlr. thirty-six hours and reached
Barcelona un Dec. 31. There was u creat ffite
In proBress on that day, tho occasion beinc the
untlline of tho jtatun of Christopher Colum
bus in tlio Plaza do Colon. As soon as I had
EOton the ship my hands were chained, and
tnoe In chnrite of mo became vory insolent.

soldiers and pain wore taken to make n spee

1 veople. but they did not offer to molest me,
ilthoueh everywhere my approach was Croat
1 brcrlesof 'Viva Lspaflnl' The demonstra
tion was particularly (treat as we passed the
name of Columbus, to which several of tho
soldiers drew my attention with evident pride,
1 could not help remarking to one of them
upon the similarity of inv f ute with that of the
discoverer of tho Western continent, hut as I
pointed at tho statue with my manacled wrists
the populace cheered in derision.
"Upon reaching tho fortress j iras handed
oyh to ttje Governor. Gen. Fernandez, nnd
was vcrvniuch surprised to hoar him announce
that I was to be'treated as a prisoner of war.
1 ivas fairly woll treated tin audi, and believe
that my position was not different from that
In which I would havefbeon held by othor na
tion. This was In raark,ed contrast to Kpan
Ish custom. Much of the time I was in the
hospital. I was allowed oneo a week to see a
copy of an Kmillsli newspaper and followed
the events of the vfnr with Interest. Jitters
from ir wifo 'reached me at times, but they
were all mutilated 'by the censor."
In reply to n question as to tho future, of
Cuba, tie said tlut, coming from Europe, he
vas a little ignorant of the latest develop
ments. i . , ...
1 The American people made a declaration
I) In Congress for tbo Independence of Cuba.
nnd went to vrar for humanity's sake, and I
suppose they will keep their word." he said.
"Jf It is foiind, that we are not able to govern
nurMhM.,1 would prefer that, Cuba should
he ahtntoof tho rjnitedaratesjtbut not a Ter
ritory. Yfo are an enlightened people, and
ilesorvo the rleht of Statehood, If annexation
ever conies. Before that, however, a chance
should te glvn us to govern ourselves. I
have great sympathy for the United States,
and I would not mind seeing Cuba one of the
Mates ef the great republic but I have been
llctitiM for Independence since my boyhood,
and I would like tu try it.
"Illthtte is'a party In this country whloh
wants annexation, it should not force mat
tens. Had this country not had a nation tc
tight that had been lighting us for three years
it vrculd not have achieved such great results.
It li not good for Americans to slight the
Cubms. 1 don't think the Cuban troops will
eauie any trouble, and I approve of tho Ameri
can occupation as a moral force In restoring
ort'er. At the same time, tho Americana can
not keep order In the interior of tho Island.
Daly our trpops on do that; but I do not
tslnk there will be any more serious troublo In
Cuba now. Klon. Garcla's death wilt In no
far affect the political situation.
"The situation in Hraln I do not consider
critical. The people seem to feel they have
(learned a lesson. To my mind. It will not be a
lutltre one." however."

TRICK DOG BITES TITO FEOPX.E.
Cava a Free Street Show and Resented the
Critlciams of the Audience.
Henry It. Boyle of 212 West Seventeenth
street was on his way home last night when ho
sawn big bulldog como out of tho hall of 112
Seventh avenue Tho dog walked to tho centra
ot the sidewalk, stood on his hind legs, and
then proceeded to do the cooohee-coochee
dance.
"What's this?" quoth Mr. Boylo. "I should
have started homo sooner."
Ho continued to watch tho talented dog, how
ever, nnd pretty soon was rowarded by seolng
tho dog hop about, waving his front paws as If
ho wero a pugilist punching the hag. Then tho
dog sat down on his haunches and looked
nround as If expecting some applause.
"That dog's crazy." remarked Boyle to tho
crowd ot spectators that had gathered. The
animal looked reproachfully at Boylo, did a tew
waltr. steps, walked on his forelegs, turned sev
eral Bomorsaulta and then again sat down and
lookodnboiit him expectantly. .
" Ho ought to bn shot." declared Boyle.
This was too much for the dog. He jumped
for Boyle and took n strong grip on that gen
tleman's left leg. The crowd scattered and
Boylo kicked tho animal off and left to hunt up
a doctor to cauterize the wound. Then the dog
began the programmn nil over again. He soon
had another crowd of interested spectators,
and among them was Johnny Murphy, 14 years
old. who lives at 14(1 Seventh avenue.
"Uullygeol" shouted Johnny. "Look ntde
mutdoln' stunts.".
Such n characterization was offensive to a dog
of such blue dog blood. He stopped his tricks
and uyed Johnny in a suspicious manner, no
resumed them again, however, und Johnny
once more gave vent to his delight.
" Dat cayoodle'a a peach I" ho yelled.
Then tho animal made a dnsh and Johnny a
right leg was what suffored. Tho crowd sepa
rated them and then they aliased the dog
up to Sixteenth street and then through to
Seventh avenue, where Policeman Cal
houn of the West Twentieth street station
captured the animal. Calhoun was about
to shoot tho dog at the demands of theexoltod
crowd-whon Austin, II. Hoberts of 112 Seventh
avenue camo running up and protested. He
suid he was the owner of the doc and de
manded thut the crowd go to the station nnd
tell the facts to the Sergeant. Sergeant Qulnn
was on tne desk when the procession arrived.
"That's a trick dog," said Itoberts. "and he's
worth more than his weight in gold. Ho can
punch the bag and don hundred other tricks.
Ilo appears regularly at the vaudeville
4 iiat rfH
"Iwori't take thn responsibility of ordering
him shot," said Sergeant Qulnn. "I'll lock
him in a cell for tho night, and you two people
who are bitten can go to Jefferson Market
Court In the morning and lot the Judge decide
what to do."
Tho dog was locked up, and till midnight
Sorgeant Qulnn puzzled over what charge to
muki) on tlio blotter against tho animal. He
considered disorderly conduct, felonious as
sault and mayhem, and then gave It up. leaving
the apace blank. The dog howled all nights
much to the disgust of the other prisoners.
Boyle and Johnny had their womuds cauterized
at Kew York. Hospital.

Notcial Cailt Duxmtch to Tux Bi:n.
Paris. Deo. 12.-In tho Chamber of Deputies
to-day M. do Frorclnet, Mlnlstor ot War. re
fused to in ply to au Interpellation by M. Paschal
Groussct. ltsdlcal Socialist, on tho ground that
tho army must bo kept outside ot parliamentary
discussion. The Chamber passed a voto ot con
fidence in the Government, 4U3 to 78.
8cenrs of excitement resulted from tho In
terpellation of M. Groussot, who denounced tho
nntl-natloiial conspiracies of tho members of
tho general staff, and declared that they wero
guilty ot treason.
This declaration caused an uproar, during
which sovoral blows wero struck. The Presi
dent's calls for ordor wero Ignored, and he was
about to suspend tho sitting vvhcu partial calm
was restored, Tho discussion continued, how
ever, amid varying degrees of agitation.
It) tho courso ot tho uproar MM. LaeloB,
Bougere, Cadluat, und Zuvaoa engaged In fist
lights and were separated by the ushers. M.
Grousset attempted to read a letter purporting
to havo been written by the German Emperor.
Immediately Ministers nnd Doputles by tho
scoro leaped to thelr.fect and vehemently pro
tested against tho reading. During a lull in
the confusion M. Groussct shouted n dcclata
tlon that the gciiornl staff had condamnod
Dreyfus without any proof.
M. do FreyclnutandPremlcr Dupuy defendod
tho army, which, they declared, was wholly do
votod to Its duties. They warned M. Groussot
not to drag tho army Into party polomlcs. Tho
order of the day was demanded and confldonco
in tho Govemmont wns nlllrmed.
Tho sum total of M, Grousset's efforts In tho
Chamber ot Deputies wns tho raising ot nn
atrocious clamor and the wasting ot the wholo
afternoon. They contributed nothing to tho
cause of civil liberty, howevor well In
tentloned thoy may havo boon. M. Grous
set's persistent reforences t olgn powers
in connection with tho Dreyfus case wero tho
cause ot tho displays ot furious passion. Thcso
references worn based on various nowspapor
rumors, and tho powers referred to wero Ger
many, Ruosin, Austria and Italy, nil ot whom
wore represented as bolng Implicated tn tho
protests. M. Grousset's allusions to Bussia
nnd Germany wero especially violent.
When tho members camo to blows the Na
tionalists, who aro patriots of tho DdroultVlo
type, pummelled the Socialists, and the latter
gave back as good as they received. Tho scene
foratlmowaseauallydlsgraceful and childish.
Throo duols have been arranged as tho result
ot tho afternoon's criminations and recrimina
tions. Of these one is between M. Boyer and
M. De'rouled nnd nnothor between M. Habert
and M. Claguy.
Up to a late hour this afternoon, with tho ex
ception of a slight demonstration In front of
the military prlion of Chercho Midi by a small
crowd ot nnti-rcvtsionlsts. there has boon no
sign of the expected trouble. Paul DSroul6de.
who had called a meeting of tho Lenguo of
Patriots to further protest against Dreyfus and
Plequart, did not make his appearaneo.
After the small demonstration at the Cherche
Midi prison tho crowd marched to tho Hotel
des Involutes, cheering tho army on tho way.
From there It marched to tho ofTlcInl resldenco
of Gen. Zurllntlon, where it again cheered,
but was not admitted. M. Mlllovoyp, ftepub
llcan Nationalist member of tho Chamber of
Deputies, mndo a speech In which he donouncod
the "Infamous Ministers and Court ot Cassa
tion." Tho crowd then proeoeded to tho Cham
ber ot Deputies, where. In a BDcech to his fol
lowers before entering, M. Millovoyo said he
would carry Into tho Chamber the echo ot their
Indignant protests. Ho concluded by advising
them to disperse, an operation in which tho
crowd, which was not numerous, was asslstod
by tho police.
All of tho railway stations which were pro
tected last evening against an outbreak grow
ing out of the popular fueling In regard to
DreyfuB and Picquartare still strongly guarded
by tho military, and several thousand Repub
lican Guards nnd police agents aro doing
special duty In various parts ot the city.
The Jourual and the Eclair declaro that the
report which has boen circulated of the discov
ery ot an Anarchist plot to destroy the OpSra
Corolque Is absolutely false.
ITESLErAX'S lfOJIAX UUESTIOX.
Coedncntlon to Stay. Says Dr. Raymond Dr.
MncCracken on the Philippines.
At the annual dlnnor ot the Alumni Associa
tion of Wesloyan University nt tho Hotel Savoy
last evening Dr. B. P. Baymond, President of
Weileyan. talked on tho subject of coeducation,
or, as ho put it, the woman question.
"It's an old qutstlon." he said ; "it goes back
about as far nstheGardon of Eden: and It
hasn't been settled up to date and Is not likely
to be In tho near future The supreme de
mand of our time Is for robust, honest, manly,
independentforceful men. I believe that tho
college'has tho important work of developing
tnls type rf manhood. It tho number of wo
men now In Weslevnn University were to be
largely Increased we should lose somothlng ot
the strength and courage that come from tho
intercourse of men with mon. But that daesn't
necessarily settto tho question that there
should be no women In the university."
Dr. Raymond suggested the appointment ot
a oommltteo of seven to study tho qU3stlon
and continued: "There Is a perfect unanimity
In the faculty that wo cannot shut our doors
entirely against women now."
Chancellor H. M. MacCrucken of the Now
York University spoke on the Philippine ques
tion. Describing tho visit to tho VYIilto House
of the delegation which carried the resolu
tions of the Saratoga Convention on the coun
try' foreign polloy to President McKmley, he
said:
"President McKInley declared, and II was a
noble declaration, that we could only judge
cf our national destiny by doing our duty as a
nation.
"Until this date." he continued. "I have
not found that the President has departed
from any ot the four propositions submitted.
I cannot Imagine how the United Statos Son
ate can reruse to approve tho treaty. That
treaty and tho position of President McKIn
ley lathe working out In our political rela
tions of the Bamo sentiment of duty to the
world (hat Inspired Wilbur I'Uk lWesleyan's
first Presldontl when he said: 'My sole object
Is the education of young men for the world.' "
Dr. MacCraeken said that hull a dozen such
men as Dr. Carroll, whom President MuKln
ley sent to Porto itlco. should be sent to Ma
nila to investigate and repo't on education In
tho Philippines More educational commis
sioners nnd fewer Generals should he our

death ot Oen. Callxto Garcia at VijshlnBton
was rooolved with profound regret among Cu
bans ot all classes In this olty. Nenrly every
house displayed a Cuban flag at halt-staff and
many business placos woro closed. Gen. Wood
showed the sympathy folt by tho Americans by
ordering tho flags at the palace, dopartment
headquarters, municipal headquarters and the
Custom House displayed at half-staff. At 0
o'clock this morning the cathedral boll tolled
thn hour, nnd tho refrain was caught up by the
bells of alt tho other churches. Those mem
bers of Gon. Garcla's family at present hero
rccelvod many visits of sympathy from poopto
of the city nnd province. Col, Carlos Garcia, a
son of tho General, left for tho Unltod Btatoa
to-day, after telegraphing to havo the body
temporarily placed in a receiving vault.
I.a Imlfptmltncia, tho only papor published
hero to-day, says that Gon, Garcla's death Is a
great blow to the Cuban people. His llfo was a
continuous sacrifice for his country's welfare.
Ho had lived through two wars and had faced
death on n hundred bnttlellelds. Tho pcoplo
regarded him with tho resiiect duo a pat rlarcli,
and had learned to confidently follow his foot
steps In penco or war. They had looked to him
to lead them out of their present difficulties.

to him that Gen. Garcia was fairly Idolized by
the Cubans, and that they would npprcclato
anything done for him by the Church, oven if
he were dead. Tho Church in Cuba is not
any too popular at tho credent time, owing
to tho part played by tho Spanish
priests during the war, and everything that

DIVVER'S BEKFSTE.IK SOCIAL.
Martin ISngel Not to He Allowed to Over
crow the Second with ma Pink Teas.
Tho P.Dlvvor Association does not proposo
to allow Its prostlgo to suffer by the giddy
whirl ot social functions Into which the Martin
Engel Association of " de Ate" has plungod.
When Charles Kramer, ono of Martin Engel's
lieutenants, recently opened a muslahall on the
Bowery near Grand stroet the DIvverites kept
their eyes on It. Tho Atlantlo Garden, two
blocks south on tho Bamo sldo ot the
Bowery, has long beon tho social headquarters
of the DIvverites. The leading lights ot the
district, including P. Dlvver himself. Judge
Bolto. Sam Wolf, Bob Dovo, Jimmy Dlvvor nnd
James Slovin can bo found thoro almost nny
night drinking In inspiration from Moyer
beer, while tho lesser lights take nny old
beer. But Kramer's is a moro gorgeous place
and something had lobe dono to restore the
balance In favor of the Second district, so the
Dlvvnrs gavo a beefsteak party last night at the
Dlvver Club.
P. Dlvver himself arranged It. Shortly be
fore 8 o'clock Bale Hook llogan carrlod the
beef Into tho largo hall in thn clubroom and
deposited It on a table. Lxcited mon crowded
around him.
"Now, I say, yuuso rollers just keep yer
shirts on. Ityotisohnin t had yer suppers yet
tut wait," said Bale Hook llogan. Ho weighs
200 pounds, and nobody disputed his order. A
raugo had boen put up in thu back of tho room,
and ltudolph Katzenburg.n butchorfrom Wash
ington Murket, began to cut tho portions,
" Give me n plocu ot tier tenderloin j" shouted
ono man,
"Give Jimmy Ollvor a hunk off der neok."
shouted another. This was regard ort as an
unkind cut for Jimmy, because In thn har
monized organization of the district Jimmy
Oliver is tho ono man who would not have been
welcome it he had ateuded. It requliod
lino and diplomatic work on tho part
of Katzonburg to distribute thn steak
without causing jealousy. p. Dlvvor,
Judgu Bolte and Congressman-elect Daniel J.
lllordoii got tenderloin. Thn sirloin went to
tho district captains and otllcoholders. A sir
loin In tho Hecond district has a way of extend
ing itself, and very good sirloins ran be cut off
the rump or even the shoulder It the demand is
large. Some of the followers ot Niok Brown,
who lod a revolt against Dlvver. got this sort of
surloln. Men who wero lukewarm In the last
eleotlon. but who promise to bo good next year,
consumed tho chuck. There were no grades in
the mixed ale, and there was no limit to it.
Ed Coppers Introduced an artist named

on for a speech but Coppers said he was too

Into Germany.
Herrlllchtorcrltlolsodtho Emperor's recent
trip to Palestine and reforrod to tho footings of
loathing with which Germans vlowed tho
Armenian atrocities. Continuing In this vein,
Herr nichter ralsod tho question ot tho neces
sity for tho creation of a Itogency to aot during
tho Kaiser's long abaonccs from tho country.
He also vigorously denounced tho expulsions
of aliens and Immigrants.
Deferring to tlio Spanish-American war, nerr
Hlchtur declared that tho sympathies ot tho
German nation woro not with Spain. Ho also
took occasion to domand that Inoreased facili
ties bo afforded for tho Importation ot Ameri
can meats.
Count von Posadowsky-Wehner, Minister ot
tho Imperial Treasury, said that tho Govern
ment was awaiting tho report ot tho Gorman
expert who had been sont to America.
Herr von DQlow. Mlnlstor ot Foroign Affairs,
announced that thero had beon a satisfactory
oxchnngo of vlows between Germany and
Amorlca, and he continued to hope for the con
clusion of au economic peaco with tho United
States.
Her von Billow said he was glad to know that
Germany's attltudo during tho Spanish Ameri
can war was approved. The Government had
steered scrupulously and observed a loyal
neutrality and so had not disturbed her rela
tions with either belligerent.
Germany would have preferred. In the in
terests of humanity nnd her own commercial
Interests, tho prevention of the war, hut after
tho efforts In that direction had boen frus
trated she could only leave matters to take
their course Mcanwhilo tlio utmost efforts
had beon mado to prevent injuty to tho Ger
man shipping trade.
Tho Foreign Minister added that ho hoped
that the consclontlous, straightforward lino
followed by tho Govornmcnt had demonstrated
thopcacofulncssot Its disposition and created
confidence in the honosty of Its policy.
After oxprosslng his bollof that with mutual
good will, tho friendly relations with the
United States would be rctalnod, Herr
von Billow dwelt upon Germany's deslro
for peace. Tho peace of tho world,
ho said, dopended on a compromlso be
tween national self-lntorcst and tho common
duty of civilisation. Germany, while mindful
that hor strength depended on tho keenness of
her sword, would always be true to tho princi
ples ot humanity, tho cause ot penco and the
Interests of commerce.
In an earlier part of his speech Herr von
BOlow dealt with Germany's relations with
Austria. Ho declared that tho expulsions
of the Slavs In no wise endangered tho
friendship betweon the two nations, nor
wns any disturbance of tho Triple
Alltanco to be feared. I Loud applause. The
Triplo Alliance, ho added, was a historic work
of great statesmanship which endured, and
which preserved tho most complete internal
autonomy with absolute independence abroad.
All the parties concerned were equally Inter
ested in Its malntenanco and would lose
equally if it were dissolvod. Begardlng the
expulsions themselves, Herr von BDlow said:
"Tho right to expel Is one ot our sovereign
privileges, and we will not allow It to be en
croached upon by anybody." Ho doslred to
say no moro on tho subject, whict. he said, was
a potty difference, merely of a business na
ture, and need not be treated In other than
conciliatory manner.
Iteferrlng to the relations with Groat Britain,
Herr von BQlovv said that all he would
now say, but he thought that a great
deal,' was that thore were all sorts of
questions and a great variety of points In
which Gormany could go. and does gladly go,
together with England without prejudicing
and completely maintaining other valuable
relations.
