love tor our candidate Induces me to go one
step farther and see the consummation
of this great victory for the Republican
j uc task which I have had before me
iu the present campaign was arduous, but
its conduct was ln accordance with strict
business lntegrit), honor and fair dealing.
I wish to Bay further to this committee that
if Major McKinley is elected President
of tbe United States be will be elected
owing no man a promise that will em
barrass his administration. What be owes
be owes only to his country, and what he
will do will be for tbe welfare ot tU
Republican party.
If a pure lite, patriotic motives and a
firm determination to do his duty will
make his administration a success, tbe
United States will have occasion to thank
God for the-nomination made in ester

the best report received here up to the
present being Varelns" correspondence,
published ln La Discussion, the best in
formed independent paper in Hav ana.
He Bays that Gen. Jumlocr Castellai.os
left Puerto Friucipe on the 8th with
2,114 men, 342 horses, five mounted
pieces of artillery and a section for same.
On the 9th they encamped at u cat tie
ranch named Saratoga, after exchanging
random shuts with rebel skirmishers.
About 4 o'clock p. in., the attack com
menced by a charge of 1 ,000 rebel cavalry
men, with machetes, which the Spaniards
admit was made with great deciion.
From that raoniintuntll the morning cf
the 11th tbe Insurgents continued hamm
ing tbe troops, killlngaiid wounding many.
The story or Gen. Castcllanos, wbo com
manded tbe Bpes ords. Is that tbaCubra
charges were repelled either by artillery
flreorby forming t he famous hollow squ.ir-s,
which the Spaniards couoldcr unbreakable.
Varela also states that the Spanish troops
fired 50,000 cartridges and 30 shells, and
tlie rebels 23,000 shots. Naturally ha
figures the rebel losses from 400 to S00,
and tlie Spaniards at 35, of which only
four were killed and tbe rest wounded,
more or less, including two officers, but
he candidly confesses he has not been able
to obtain information of the number ot
horses or pack mules killed or wounded.
From other reliable sources although in
complete and lacking Important details
It Is known tlmtGemez has only 1,00 men.
It was known In the crty that Gomez was
encamped at Najasa with that number of
men. ln tbe first charge the Spaniards ad
imttbatthere wasonly one thousand. Then
the Spaniards Increased it to 5.0C0.
Gen. Castellar.os' fcrces amounted to 3.
tOO men. according to this version, which
is about accurate -fcr no Spanish generJI,
even less Castellano. who is an old war
rior and knews Gomez's way of fighting
would march at tl e head of l'.COO men to
attack such a fcrmidable opponent.
Gomez knowing of his rival's appro ich
placed bis men in convenient positions,
dividing his forces in small groups of 300
men each. As soon as the Spaniards were
comfortably encamped In the ranch, pre
paring for next day's attack on Gomez's
stronghold at Najaa. the Cuban chief sud
denly made his appearance, attacking tbeir .
positions simultaneously on all sides.
Taken unawares and completely sur
rounded, all they could do was to defend
thcmse'ljes from the continued charges,
which, with marvelous military precision,
were kept up night and day. without af
fording the Spaniards a moment's rest. .
Thanks to Gen. Godoyes' timely arrival
with ,-00 men. Castcllanos wassaved from
complete disaster, as undoubtedly he could
never have extricated himself from the
trap In which Gomez bad him.
The actual losses on both sides have not
been ascertained yet- It is only known
that the Spaniards brought with them J
wounded from the field of action, and
w hcthcr tbey left any behind Is not known.
Report has it that the total Spanish loss In
killed, wounded and missing was over
