TRErARING TO MOVE OX IIAT1XA. rh IiMarcrntt Gathering Toe-ether Sop ptiea and .tmmnnition For a Slrgf. Thf Spanish Fnr an priinc f Sym pathizers When the Rebels Appear. IIavaxa, Jaa. 1. The most conflict ing reports are in circulation regarding the movements of the insurgent forces under OeneraU tioiuez. Maceo. Ban dera and others. The Spanish officials continue to claim that the insurgents are in retreat, and that the Spanish troops are pursuing them out of the province of Matanzas. But the friends of the insurgents point to the fact that evtii the authorities here are compelled to admit that detachments, at least, of the insurgents are -itill in the vicinity of the city of Macanzas. and that they are still tloing damage. luiutin bauuera, the third in com maud of the Cuban forces, at the head of a strong column of insurgents, said to number several thousand men. is re ported to be near Macurijes (Corral- lalso), nalt way between Lnion de Keyed and Jaguey (irande, where the Spaniards claim lioniez is retreating or has retreated into Santa Clara. Jvow, if it is true that the Spaniards are pur suing (iomez through Jaguey (irande and into Santa Clara, the insurgents commanded by Quintin Bandera are behind the pursuing Spanish columns ami letweeu them and their base of supplies at Union de Keyes not a very pleasant position for the Spanish troops to be in. Finally, it is asserted upon good authority that Laceret, an other of the important insurgent com manders, is moving in the direction of t lora, north of Sabanilla and westward of Union de Reyes. If the railroad station of Cabezes an nounced to have been burned is that of the quite important town of Cabezes, southward and westward of the port of Matanzas. then the insurgents are away on the other side of Lnion de Keves and have passed Matanzas, going in the direction, northward, of Jarnco, and southward of (iuiues, two import ant towns within a short distance of Havana. However, it is believed that these forward movements are made by the cavalry only of the insurgents, as the enemy is reported to be moving swiftly and on horseback. But, the adherents of the insurgent cause here assert that the insurgent infantry and artillery will follow tiie cavalry west ward in due course of time and that iomez and Maceo have simply been collecting the necessary supplies of men and ammunition, preparatory to a iinal movement forward upon Havana. At the Spanish headquarters here the possibility of the advent of Gomez outside the fortifications of Havana is scouted as being nothing less than an ibsurdity, and it is still insisted that he and his companions are in retreat. If this is the case ail outward signs here are deceiving in the extreme. The naval and military authorities are ex hausting every resource in hurrying troops to the front and in preparing for the defence of the capital. There is no doubt that the authorities here, while expressing great confidence of being able to repel an insurgent attack upon Havana, are not quite so certain of be ing able to suppress a popular uprising should there be an outbreak here in favor of the insurgents. It is reported here that additional re inforcements of troops have been urgently requested from Spain, that some of them nave already sailed and that the captain general is very anxious that they should arrive here in the shortest time possible in order to take part in the defense of Havana, it being understood that every man who could le spared has been hurried to the front. MRS. DAViDsON iMKEATS. Bhe TVelares She Will Kipmw Others Id San Franriiteo. Sax Fran, isco, Jan. 1. Popular in terest in the sensational charges against Rev. '. O. Brown, pastor of the First Congregational church, and Miss Mat tie t verman, has increased rather than abated. Mrs. Mary Abbott Davidson, who brought the charges of improper intimacy against the clergyman, is still in the cifv prison. Her attorney says the dispatches about Mrs. Davidson's eastern record and her imprisonment at Epswich, Mass., whether true or false have made it practically impossi ble to obtain bail for his client, although the bail had been reduced to fil.Ooo. Mrs. Davidson in an interview reiter ates her charges against Mr. Brown, re peating alleged conversations which she declared both Dr. Brown and Miss Overman made to her. Mrs. Davidson also says she will make further sensational accusations during her trial, involving several prominent memliers of the First Congregational church, male and female, in scandals similar to tliat in which she immicatd the pastor. MLss Overman admits that lonr montns ago she offered to sell local paper for 1,000 a story which she "" " uum rum ; prominent man in mis city. -Miss Overman said when sue offered to sell the story she was uuuer the influence of Mrs. Davidson and as a matter of fact knew nothing ufc.uusi, uuy prominent man.

Sherman Intri cn a Resolution One lawed to lnv. ti.tu Arimr 1'iate. Washington. Jan. I. The senate held a two hours' stssion in the course of which a speech by Mr. Mitchell (Rep., Or. on the restoration of the SlcKinley duties on wool was listened to and a resolution was passed for the investigation by the committee on naval affairs of the prices paid by the gov ernment for ship armor. The resolu tion contained a broad intimation that officers of the government were inter ested in armor plate processes, and Senator Chandler, the author of the resolution, said the facts that had come to his knowledge warrauted him in as suming the responsibility for inaugur ating the inquiry. The most important feature of the session perhaps was the resolution of fered by -ir. Sherman for the restora tion of the gold reserve, which there after should be held sacred for the re demption of the greenbacks and treas ury notes, the former to be reissued only in exchange for gold coin or bul lion. Mr. Sheiman will address the 6enate on his resolution on Friday. Mr. Elkins asked for the immediate consideration of a resolution apropos of the anticipated bond issue, declaring it to be the sense of the senate that no bonds of the United States should be sold at private sale or by private con tract, but should be disposed of by ad vertisement to the highest bidder. Mr. Hill of New York objected. Mr. Nel son (Rep.. Minn.) made his first speech in the senate, advocating higher duties as a remedy for present financial troubles. The senate adjourned until Friday. Senator Mitchell declared that no in dustry hail received sut h a staggering and deadly blow as that inflicted upoii the wool industry by the Wilson tariff act. It had drained' from the United States within the last year fs5,000,000 in gold to pay for foreign wool and had occasioned a loss to this country of more than $1,Xhi.0Oo. Unless this leg islation was changed the sheep indus try of the Pacific coast would be anni hilated. Mr. Mitchell said the tariff bill passed by the house would probably increase the revenue $40,000,000 a year. Amended as it should be, affording wool, lumber, barley, hops and other agricultural products adequate protec tion, it will give an additional revenue of $00,000,000 and place a padlock upon the so-called "endless chain" by which gold is drawn from the treasury, stop all necessity for further issue of bonds and rescue from impending ruin the wool and other agricultural interests of this country. WARLIKE "I HRF.ATS MADE. Papers of British Ouinna Predict aster For Venezuela. WAsnixoTOX.Jau. 1. British Guiana newspapers received here give much attention to President Cleveland's mes sage on Venezuela to congress. The Demarara Chronicle says that if the United States proposes to arbitrate for South American republics, she must also assume a protectorate over them. The paper points out the outrages in flicted on British Guiana residents by the Venezuelans, and vs it is hardlv possible for English si.esmen to enter into further controversv with the au thorities at Caracas as lonr as those outrages are not repaired. And, fur thermore, if that reparation is not speedily made, further discussion re specting the boundary line may be al together unnecessary. Full details are given of the recent meeting at Demarara to form a col onization plan in accordance with the wishes of Colonial Minister Chamber lain. The importance of this action has already attracted attention in Lou don. It was decided to form a com pany with capital stock of f.-)OO.Ooo, to colonize crown lands along the Cuyu ani river between the meridian of longitude CO and the boundary of the colony and between latitudes '.' and 7 north, within the limits in dispute be tween Great Britain and Venezuela. The New ltond Contract. New York, Jan. 1. A contract has been signed by all the members of the new bond syndicate subiect to the for mal acceptance of the government. The syndicate agrees to furnish 11,500. 000 ounces of gold, amounting to about rOO.r 10,000 poIdt the government to take one-half of this sum first and to have the option of taking the other half and to deliver 4 per cent 30 vear com bonds at about the same price as paid for the last issue of bonds: the man agers ot the syndicate to receive a com mission of 1 per cent. Cermans Will Take Some Ronds. Berlix, Jan. 1. The Wolff agency, which has the closest relations with the German Government, has issued the following notice: The details of the new United States loan are not yet definitely determined upon. The con ditions, however, are expected to differ but slightly from those under which the last issue was effected. The loan will amount to about $100,000,000, of which a portion will probably be taken by Germany. Kng-land Don'l Oet Any Loxdox, Jan. l. Mr. ltonrts.

Washington. J.iu. J. Then- are no new developments in the matter of a new bond issue, and the opinion now prevails that it may lie po.-tponcd for a nnmlHT of days yet. The cessation of large withdrawals of gold for export and the fact that one or more orders have been placed for gold shipments from abroad, are important factors in the question of an early issue. On the other hand, the almost daily announce ment from the sub-treasury at New York that considerable quantities are being withdrawn in redemption of legal tenders, would seem to justify prompt action on the parr, of the presi dent. These redemptions, it is said, are undoubtedly asked for the purpose of accumulating a supply of gold, with which to purchase bonds when they shall have been placed on the mark.-t by the syndicate, and as they now aggregate considerable more than ", Ooo.Ooo since the forthcoming issue be came a settled fact, their early discon tinuance has become a matter of the first importance. This can be accomplished, however, only through the operations of the syn dicate, and it is argued, therefore, that the interests of the government lie in a prompt announcement of the issue. What will be the result of these con flicting interests is not now apparent. The report from New York to the effect that the members of the new syndicate have entered into an agreement by wnicn the government is to be at once furnished with 10 ,o0'),uMt in gold, and later on, at its option, with $io;. 0 0,000 in addition, cannot be verified at this time. It is the general opinion, however, that this arrangement lor an additional contingent amount was made with the approval of the presi dent, who is anxious that this issue shall be the last during his term of office. It is believed further that the condition as to the procurement of a part-of the gold from abroad, and that no part of it shall be withdrawn from the treasury, are n.ade parts of the new contract. The forthcoming monthly treasury statement win snow an excess ot re ceipts over expenditures for the month of December of about " I J. 0' 0, which is a gain over November of about $I.MK).0oo. The heavy payments on account of interest, pension" and Paci fic bend redemptions during Januarv are expected to res.iit in a large deficit for that mouth. The deficit for the present fiscal year ending June :,o. 1M(!, is expected to Ik? approximated $17,OO0,hu. These figures, however, are based on the assumtiou that the re ceipts from customs will materially in crease during the next three inoiiths. as is usually the case. The receipts from internal revenue sources, it is thought now have reached the normal and hence no material change for the better is expected except through the customs. TERRIFIC BOILER EXPLOSION.

The New York and Cleveland Gas Coal company. Will iam P. Do Armit president, has issued notices to its employes at the three large mines of a 04-cent a ton cash rate after Jan. 1. It is claimed by other producers of coal that this large com pany has been an obstacle in the way of preventing the payment of fair wages to miners, as the rate paid was on the face lower than the district price. At the last convention of the miners and operators of Mie; Pittsburg district, it was agreed that the rate of the dis trict should be the same as the rate paid by the above company. The efforts of the committee to se cure true uniformity" have leen very successful, and the prospects for an ad vauce in mining rates are now better than ever before. In relation to the subject of paying the dictrict price the circular reads as follows: Commencing Jan. 1, lv.iii, the New Y'ork and Cleveland Gas Coai company will pay G4 cents per ton of 2,000 pounds for digging J'., inch screened coal, with the rates to be pa:d for the other grades of coal in their usual and proper relative ratios at the rate for 1 '-iuch screened coal. It has no need to promise that the aforemen tioned conditions, constituting -true uniformity.' shall obtain at its mines or in its payment for labor performed as these conditions have obtained in its practice for many years. "The aforesaid prices for digging coal will be paid without any waiver of its rights under its contracts with its employes, and will be paid pending an examination on part of itself and em ployes as to whether the aforesaid con ditions obtaining at its mines, and stated before the October convention, do really exist at the other mines of the district, and as to whether the rela tive prices for digging 'pick' mined coal and 'ma hine' mined coal made by said convention do establish only a fair relative difference between the cost of digging that coaL "tihoum that examination rlislos that the aforesaid conditions, or auv of them, do not obtain at all the other mines in the district, then, at the be ginning of the next regular semi monthly pay period thereafter, this company will pay the prices provided ior m its agreement with its employes."
