Fond of Cock Fights and Strongly Addicted to Peculation. DEUELTI OF THE SPANIAED'S BATUEE icor.nisroxDE'S'CE or thx disfatch.i Santiago, Cuba, March 20. The Dnke of "Wellington, who had considerable deal ings with the parents of the Cuban people, viz., the Spaniard?, is credited with saying the latter were a people valiant in time of peace, cowards in time of war and always thieves, and however much the Cuban hates the Spaniard, who is at once his parent, his ruler, his oppressor, he is to the American observer though be does not for a moment think so still a Spaniard, with perhaps a few drops more of the African blood in his veins through his several generations of close social relations with the African slave of Cuba. Wellington was probably too contemptu ously severe on the valiant followers of Charles Y. and of Cortex, yet if half be true that one hears of peculation and thievin; in the government of Cuba b v the ruling class the Spaniards and alto indulged iu by the Cubans themselves whenever they get a chance, "Wellington was probably more than half rizht. The Cuban men strut about like bantam cocks, and in the casual business transactions of the tourist with tbem they have reduced the practice of dishonesty to a system little known to the smart Yankee, and olten not discovered bv him till his money is safely in their pockets. During the late insurrection, which only ended in 1SS2, every Cnban howled and cackled, as only the Cuban can cackle and gesticulate, forliberty, and urced everybody else to join the insurgents, even his brothers, sons and fathers, but as for himself, he took the first opportunity to make himself com fortable either iu Havana or New York, and did all he could tor the cause by his inces sant cackle, but fight not he. The result is known, for outside of the Cnbans who in habited the hills and mountains in the re gion of Santiago de Cuba, who were by lorre of habit banditti, the average Cuban took good care of his skin, either within the Spanish lines or else in Xevr York, which latter place he condescendingly regards as next in importance to Havana. The Yirginius Slassacre. The fate of the war vessel Virginius, in 1S72, whose-wreck I saw in the harbor of Santiago, may be recalled. This vessel was arined and fitted out in ifew York with Cuban money, and manned with daring men of all countries, who were told that all brave Cuba would receive them as their de liverers,' and fight with them to the death for liberation Irom the tyrant rule of Spain. The liberators came and landed, but the Cubans were engaged in taking eare of themselves, and never raised a hand to join their lorces. In consequence the brave ad vouturers were overpowered and put in prison, their ship scuttled and sunk in the harbor, and 35 of them, many Americans ( duced to believe that the treacherous Span ami Knghsh, were shot to pieces by the ' iards were for once in their history acting in Spanish soldiers within the Morro Castle walls. The American Consul barely escaped with his life. To the credit of some English naval officers, whose vessels happened there, and the English Consul, it is said, when the remaining 23 of these unfortunate prisoners, some of whom were also Americans, were being placed in line against Morro Castle wall to be riddled with bullets the British c fficers. ascertaining the farther design of the Spanish soldiery, placed themselves and the British flag in front of the line of the unfortunate men, and by this heroic actund with heroic words ot defiance,they saved the remaining 23. This is the story as told me bv an American mulatto, a native ot Rich mond, Va., Joseph Miller, who was one of the 23 survivors. Poor Miller, or Amelio, as the Cubans have corrupted his name, was reserved for a more terrible fate. I came upon him in my investigations of the dreadful subject of leprosy of the larynx in the St Lazarc Hospital, in Havana, where, surrounded by CO or more ghastly unfortu nates, presenting every stage of this incurable and disgusting disease, he in sibilant tones that came irom a larynxlhad examined, told the story, and gesticu lated with handless arms, and endeavored to express with a tongueless mouth, a "noseless face and sightless eyes the excitement of the events that occurred in the massacre of the unfortunate meu of the Virginius. Terrible Fate of Amelio. Poor Amelio was at tlrlt time a dark mulatto. Thirteen years ot leprosy has made him white; it has also made him hand lers, footless, sightless, noseless; it has left him without ears; it has left him without a human voice; it has left him a hideous, ghastly creature, without hope in life; a mere thing, whom to look at is to make the stoutest heart shudder; whom to touch is to take the greatest possible risk ot a contagion that is sure to destroy. And such de struction! 2o other cruel thing known is to cruel, as it is a wearv journey of years, with weary limbs, over which (here is no power; shunned as no other human being is thunueil, cast out as unclean, to await the day when the horrible, hideous mass of de cay will cease to live. There are about 100 of these unfortunate creatures in the hospital for lepers in Havana, but the details are too ghastly for :.ny purpose but the legitimate one of med ical studv, and are therefore leserved for the medical and not the daily journal. It must be said that excellent preventive work is being done by the efficient Surgeon General, John 1!. Hamilton, Chief of the Marine Hospital service of the "United States, to hom,as a personal friend.I am deeply in debted for the esteemed courtesies I have re ceived from his medical staff) Dr. Bugess and others, of Cuba and Havana. It is well nigh impossible lor lepers and persons who me not already proof against the yellow fever to escape by any vessel to the United States, and this work is a matter that should receive at the hands of our Government Mill more attention, since the entire apathv and indifference of the Cubans themselves, render them alike indifferent to the welfare rf themselves and the people of the "United St-ites. Tne word or -idea of sanitation has no place iu the practical vocabulary of the Cubin, and foul smells, vile public morals and utter indifference to the commonest no tions of personal and communal cleanliness flourish iiere, and there is enough vileness in Havana alone to-day to intect the entire uuiverse. The medical profession here are studying Koch's lymph, and to-day injected a lew cases of consumption and several cases of leprosy, and my profession are here, as they are in Pittsburg, engaged in the thankless task of bettering the communities of their fellow-beings, but their hands here, as there, are not upheld. Here, from utter laziness and indifference; there, by the busy push of the citizens to make money. Unselfish Work of Physicians. "What mind can conceive of a more unsel fish thing than a profession that endeavors to get a community to enact laws that will stamp ont disease? And two-thirds of the most deadly diseases are clearly preventible, and communities, as well as na tions, are- largely indebted for iheir very light and life to the unselfish ad vice and recommendations of the medical profession. Yet water works are established in Pittsburg at the cost of mill ions without the advice of sanitary physi cians, and the result is we have drinking water from a stream that is polluted to a veritable sewer in all its (course even down to the very spot when the influent pipes take their supply. This is the business of the public, and is, coase qucntly.only attended toby a few privity in dividuals, who put money in tbeir pxirse and disease into the citizens. The Staod- ard Oil Company pipes oil hundreds of miles to the seaboard because it pays, but human health is nothing, and to pipe drink ing water from a pure mountain stream, like the South Fork, is too expensive, and is not to be thought of for a moment. But I must not torget that J. am writing or Cuba and not Pittsburg. The banditti or bandeleros are a perennial crop in Cuba, and the way they do their work is like thist The band is controlled by one or more leaders, and they live in the wild hill region. A polite note is found by Don , tba Cuban planter, under his door some morn ing, informing him if there is not $5,000, $10,000 or $20,000 in gold placed under such and such a rock, near such a tree, with a certain mark that is furnished, and by such a time, the bandeleros will burn his sugar mills and houses above his head, and if by any mistake the messenger sent to get the money should meet with an accident, such as falling Into the hands of the Spanish soldiers, their threat will ba surely exe cuted. The money is usually raised, or Don , the planter, will be ambuscaded on his way riding through his plantation of sugar cane and carried to the mountains. His Ears a Souvenirs Sooner or later a polite note will be sent to his despairing wife to send $25,000 by such a date or the next letter oi request will con tain one of the Don's cars as a souvenir. This is often accompanied by a fervent appeal by the Don himself for the wife to mortgage the plantation to get the money. As we travel from Cienfuegos, the uame means a 100 fires to Havana, we see here and there bands of Spanish soldiers guarding the track andother railroad property. "We learn that the notorious bandit, Manuel Garcia, had recently sent a polite note to the adminis trator of the railroad, informing him that they would burn all available warehouses and destroy all other railroad property if $25,000 we're not placed at their disposal. The Spanish authorities, having about 50, 000 to 60.000 soldiers otherwise unemployed. chose to give some of them occupation rather than pay the money. The mulatto bandit, Matagas, elnded the Spanish troops in his forays so long, and levied tribute so often, that he was finally paid 825,000 to leave the country. This he did, going to 2ew York, where, after a year or two he spent his money in riotous living, then returned to his old haunts in Cuba, and his followers at once rallied to their old leader. This time, however, Spanish patience was exhausted, and Matagas was hunted down and shot. "When visiting the Moro castle at Havana, we saw a bandit chief, a handsome fellow, aged about 40, who was carelessly smokine a cigarette in his cell, and awaiting his doom, than which nothing is surer. He, I was informed, would not be honored by being shot, but would some morning, with out any warning, be asked to take a seat in high-backed chair that would be brought into his cell, and a padded collar placed around his neck. Awful Method of Execution. At the side of this collar there is a crank with which to tighten the collar and at the same time carry a pointed nail into the spinal marrow at the back of the neck. Death is slow and harrowing, but none the less sure. The guards positively refused to give me this bandit's history, but I obtained it from other sources. Within a few weeks five bandits were shot down in the harbor of Havana in the pres ence of their wives and children. They had been pursued for years, and finally the Spanish authorities bad them informed that, it" they would do so, facilities would b. fur nished them to escape from the country with their wives and families. J hpv rpw in- good faith. "When they were placed on the snip at night oy the persons who had prom ised them escape for a sum of money, the Spanish soldiers came in the morning and shot four of them in their beds, in view of their wives. Others escaped to boats in the harbor, and were riddled with bullets by the soldiers in the presence of an applauding populace. A Bloodthirsty Race. The history of the Spaniard is incarnadine. He is still cruel and bloodthirsty. He de lights in the bull fight, and even the beauti ful senorita calls the miserable coward a brava who tortures and' finally kills a defenseless bull, while he shields himself by jumping or running behind barricades, or sits upon a miserable, wnrn-out horse, while the infuriated bull gores tbe weak and blindfolded horse until he walks upon his own entrails. All the while the beauti ful senoritas applaud, and tear their hat? from their heads and cast them into tbe circus de toros in token of their pleasurable excitement and approbation of the sickening sight. The Cuban, the Spaniard's natural, but prodigal son, deolares bull-fighti ng brutal, not because it kills the bull and horses, but because the Spanish advocate it. Cock fighting is the Cuban gentleman's idea of refined sport, and as we get out to afr our selves at the way station and buy fruit from the venders on a Sunday, we see everywhere Cuban gentlemen, each with a game cock, whose body is covered with a handkerchief to protect tbe part from which the feathers have been cut from the high, but to us grateful wind. The best relations seem to exist and warmest affection seems to be bestowed upon tbe game cock by his owner, who, true to his Spanish traditions, before the day is over sacrifices his brave little companion with remorseless certainty for his own vitiated sense of amusement. These game cocks are singularly beauti ful. Their plumage, cut and trimmed as it is, is still where uncut, most bright and glossed. Their heads seem never to have had a comb to be cut, but the entire head is red and smooth and leatherless down to a distance of two inches. Tbeir eyes denote intelligence, and thev seem to look to their companions, their owners, with a degree of intimacy and intelligence that betoken tbeir utter bravery to fight to the death, because they have been hatched,reared and expected to do this when called upon. Beautiful Cnban Game Cocks. These game cocks were small birds of every conceivable color, and withsDurs long aud polished, upon which the steel gafs were fastened. They crowed and defied one another, and talke'd rooster talk to,their owners, and pecked at the buttons on the shirt fronts of the Cuban dandies, who held them in their arms. "When placed upon the platform at my request to inspect them, they made at one another as far as possible, being further prevented by an expensive and padded leash attached to one ot tbe legs. The Cuban game cock is a thing of beauty, and is more to be admired than the heartless brutes who fight them so mercilessly, so that if they do not kill one another in the limited time in the ring they take them to one side and let them tight to tbe death. A voyage in one of the well appointed "Ward line of steamships to Cuba, Hassan or "Vera Cruz is all that the most exacting tourist can wish for. The table Is excellent, the officers unobtrusively polite and efficient, and the passenger is allowed to obey his own sweet will.

The Proposed Pittsburg Oil Refinery Probably Discussed, HOHROECOUHTTS LARGE GDSHER. Its Advent Is Not Likely to Break the Petroleum Market. THE NEWS PIJOM THE YaEIOUS FIELDS The big refining plant spoken of in yester day's Dispatch as likely to be started below Pittsburg soon, unquestionably had a significance in the meeting of the P. P. A. last night at Franklin. Theirdeliberations were held within closed doors, and the re sult of tbe meeting can only be conjectured. It is thonght, however, that since the lead ers of the"P. P. A. were unsuccessful in get- Hting the Burdick bill through the Legisla ture, they are quietly working on another scheme. This scheme, from all appear ances, looks like the big refinery spoken of above. A special last night says there were, pres ent at the meeting Lewis Emery, Jr., J. B. Goldsborongh and B. J. Straight, of Brad- loro; noger snerman, Aitusviue: j. w. nee, Franklin; A. M. Cobb. Washington; G. H, Graham, Falrview; P. M, Shannan and J. W. Riddle, Pittsburg, and T. J.

At theatime of its advent it was re ported to be good for 1,000 barrels a day, with chances on deeper drilling of belnclncreased a half better. The well is owned fy Pittsburg parties, who have secured a larce amount of acreage in this vicinity, and are naturally mak ing all they can out of their investment. The well is Ave or six teet in tbe Berea grit sand. The owners arer putting np tankage and mak ing preparations for a big well when drilled in. Tbe new venture, In iu present status. Is rated from 25 to 50 barrels a day. The character of the oil is said to resemble that of tbe Macksburg product, but darker and of an inferior quality. New Spurt of an Old "Well. UrXCUL TELSQBJUC TO TUZ DISPATCH.I Zelienople Captain Marsh's No. 2, on the Mullen farm, cut up a little erratic caper yes terday, and started flowing at a great rate. This new lease ot lite, however, has not been marked by longevity, or the extraordinary actions of the Will Marks No. L now charac teristic of the field. Salt water, as usual In the 100-foot, seems to predominate in this locality, and if they can find facilities to exhaust the salt water the well in question will make a good producer. No. 1 Marsh has a natural production of 35 barrels a day, but in Its present condition is not showing to Its best advantage. I The Flor ence Oil Company's No. 1, on the same farm, is being drilled deeper and showing for a good well. These parties have two new rigs started on the same farm. The McKInzle OH Com pany has two new rigs up, and will start the drill the last of the week. On the Kannaff farm Latino & Buan have 160 acres joining tbeMuller farm, which looks well. Their well on the P. Sleinbach farm will be due in about ten days. Frederick fc Staffer. on the Schrum farm, are duo tbe last of this week. Ed Brows' No. 1, on tbe Alien 'arm, drilled four months ago, is increasing its pro duction. It is doing now more than donble the amount it did when first started. His No. 2 is showing for 40 barrels a day. Thonker's No. 2 is flowing and for about a 60-barrel well. At Muddy creek the Nockenferrie farm No. I is taking the lead. Since being shot It is flowing at the rate of 45 barrels a day. There are some 13 or 15 new rigs being drilled and in process oi construction tnrougnout mis neia. Operations in the Butler Field, BDTI.EB In the 100-foot field, on the Dam bach farm. No. 1 is doing 35 barrels a day; No. 2 well, about IU barrels a day, and is gassing strongly. Nell Root, of Butler, is drilling southwest ot No. 1; be paid $2,000 for 20 acres. Beirs. McKee &. Co. are drilling at 1,200 feet, and have struct a heaTy flow ot gas, compel ling them to Bhnt down Saturday night. Tbey have 255 acres between theS&mbach and the DjithlU development, which Is considered by practical operators to be No. 1 territory. There are two wells on theCrawford farm lately in. doing about 140 barrels a day. Lcse & Nuchlfrowner are down 600 feet on the B. Oarwin farm. B. Ash & Co. are drilling at 1,000 feet on tbe Covert farm. Kennedy & Co. are putting rig timbers on the Albert Graham farm, and expect to be drilling the first of next week. From present indications Cranberry town ship bids fair to be an active oil field. A- Small New "Wildwood Well. "Wild-wood Calhoun & Patterson's No. 1 well on the Silas Sample farm, which has been drilling in the sand for some days, got the pay last evening. The well has not made any flows, but from indications it will make from a 10 to 15-barrel producer. Their well on the Charles Gibson faim is still drilling in tbe sand with np show ot oil, but as the well stands at present, it is an ordinary gasser. Griffiths & Forest Oil Company's No. 12 "Whitesellbas found the sand and has got the gas which naturally precedes tbe oil in this held. They are now moving the boiler and forge, and expect to resume drilling this even ing or to-morrow morning. The Roth Oil-Corn-Sany is still fishing for a string of tools in its Iratzer well No. 5. It has been fishing eight weeks, and the job looks serious. The Sunline Oil Company yesterday finished Its Hardy well, and it Is classed among the dusters. Forst & Greenlee have again shot their No. 1 well on the McUeagh lot. There was an im provement, although the exact result has not yet been made known. Tlio Cause of McCurdy's Increase. MoCuedy The McCurdy fifth sand pool has a production to-day of about 3.500 barrels. To the use of glycerine and the new-born wells is attributed this raise In production, and, while the output has been augmented, it can not be said the territory has been extended. Thus matters here remain tbe same. Following are tbe gauges of a few important wells: The Fisher Oil Company's well on the Riddle farm, is doing 30 barrels an hour; Mc Curdy No. 3, SO barrels, and the Philadelphia Gas Company's well, 15 barrels. There is no material change at the other wells. A New Producer at Moon. Moox The Kanawha Oil Company's well on the Springer farm, 1.000 feet south of tbe Her vey Oil Company's McCntcbeon well, is through the sand and showing for a 40-barrel well. Tbe company will tube tue well to-morrow, when its capacity will be known. Set Back By a Mishap. Glenshaw Wittmer & Co., on the Has singer farm, were very near the sand last even ing when their rope parted, and as a result will not get their ell in for a day or two, until a new cable can be procured. A SO-Barrel Well Struck. Coeaopolis The Forest Oil Company com pleted Its No. 4 Dally to-day, which is good for SO barrels. It expects to hit the sand in its No. 6 Monday. A Dry Hole at Oakdale. Oakdale The Forest Oil Company com pleted a duster in tbe fifth sand on the Wnght farm to-day. licC. DOESH'T WAKT THE MOHEY. Captain Brown Offers the Proceeds of a Bar for Charity. John M.

(a) A move first plaved by Blackburne against Fleissig at the Vienna International tournament, and since almost universally adopted as best continuation for white. (b)IiK2 was preferable. (c) White thus early intends to develop an at tack on tbe Q, B P, which ultimately forms the leading motive of the game. . (d) A weak move. Either Q Kt Q 3 or P Q R 3 was wronger. (e)PQ,K3was his only move to retain his Q, B on tbe board. The text move enables white to effect a favorable exchange. (f) White could not here capture the Q B P, because black would then have replied 23.... Q,xKt P; and if 21 KtxR, QxRch, with the best of the game. (g) Bringing out the K at this point would perhaps have been better. (b) White had no need to exchange Qt, as there was really nothing serious" in his oppo nent's threatened attack on tbe klnes side. (1) Here white mannceuvres his Kt so as to once more plant it on Q, Kt 5, again attacking the Q B P. (k) This is a weak move. He ought rather to have played his KK 2, followed byKQsq, defending the pawu with the king and releas ing the Kt so as to bring in into play. (1) Black's king is now driven out of play for a short time. (m) This move loses the game right off for black, but white iu any case, with tbe passed pawn on the K side, ought to win. (n) The mate is forced in three moves, be cause it black's Kt moves, white's Kt mates. If black takes tbe Kt, pawn retakes and goes on to queen, mating in two more moves. CHESS NEWS.

McDonald, Fa. We gave the figures as Mr. Maize sent tbem to us.but we knew when the Correction came In he would bave no trouble in making It right. Checktr Editor. Harry Lindsay. We take great pleasure in bringing before the readers ot The Dispatch this pioneer of draughts in Western Pennsylvania. Born April 6, 1818, in Donagbadee, County .Down, Ireland, beat an early age acquired a knowledge of checkers in bis native town. At the age of 20 years be went to Liverpool, England, where he met many first-class players, and many were tbe bard-fought battles for snpremaey between the experts of those days, tbe knowledge of books being very limited. In 1813 he came to America, after a voyage of 42 days, having been shipwrecked. He at last landed in New York, and for Ave vears he worked at his trade in New York and Brooklyn, playing checkers with all whom be came in contact. Iu tbe beginning or tbe nftys be came across tbe Allegbenles and landed in Pitts burg, and for these last 40 years he has been in onr midst. And until J. P. Reed, the now champion of America arose, Mr. Lindsay was tba recognized champion of Allegheny county. After locating in Pittsburg he had no difficulty in defeating all be met. His name soon became famous in tbe county. After establishing him self in a good business as a painter he devoted himself to problems and analyses of games, and an examination of the early files of tbe Clipper will find the name of H. Ix. Pittsburg. In his controversies on frames and noaitloAm ha fhas crossed swords with such famous names as A. H. Merger, the two Mugridges. Dr. Clnte. Henry Hpaytb, J. D. Janvier, etc., etc; and at the advanced age of 73 years he ljas fond ot the game as be was 60 years ago. And we be lieve if it came to a contest, in spite oi ail tne pretensions oi many younger players, he would still be champlou ot Allegheny county. CHECKER NEWS. The' latest April Fool's joke Off with the eld, on with the new, James P. Reed, checker champion of tbe world. James Wyllie, ex cbamplon. The new order became effective April L Chronicle Telegraph. Cbestnutu! Robert McCall, commenting on Hvfter's let ter to-the Turin tbo Glasgow Herald, has the following: Surprise is scarcely the word to'ex press tbe feeling with which every right-minded person will read tbe foregoing. It will be a piece of tbe sharpest practice ever heard of should Wyllie's deposit be declared forfeited when he has plainly expressed his intention of proceeding to America at a week's notice, as soon, as a match is assured with any player there. We can assure our forelcn cotemporary that tbe checker players do not indorse tbe position assumed by two or three who think tbat when they speak tbey are the whole United States: we would like to have Ibe proud title of world's champion in our midst, bnt we do not want it in, the way assumed by Hefterand Dunlap. and Reed's satellite. Dnnlap cannot band over the forfeit money, and their claims to tbe championship are all bosh. Is the opinion of tbe leaulng sporting authorities In Pitts burg, which we will give bver their own signa ture in tbe near future. The Dispatch of March 14. claiming for Pittsburg the finest headquarter for checkers in the country, did not include chess and wbitt resorts. Tbey belong to tbe rich: checkers Is the poor .man's game; and for purely checker resorts Pittsburg, w say again, is second lo nope in the States. Takecbessandwhlstont ot New Orleans and Provideuce clubs and yon will tlnd they will take tbe elegance witb them. We have been in Chicago, New York and But ton and we have seen nothing to change our position, and we spent some time in hunting them up. . La grippe has played a very strong game against tho players, and not a few have bedn knocked out by bis moves tbat will take some time tu recover. While tbe wet, cold weather oi March lasted we were puzzled bow to coun teract his moves; but April sunshine knocks his game completely out, and happiness is the result.

By thd vaporings and bom bast of our would-be com petitors into believing that 85 cents is cheap for a Star Shirt It isn't. Guslfy's are selling the same identical Star Shirt 50 CENTS. It's astonishing what a small hole some of our neighbors can crawl thro'. Now we will build up a brick wall in the shape of a fact and see whether they will butt their charitable (?) brains against it HERE'S THE FACT: They claim to be doing some thing extraordinary by selling" a Star Shirt at 85c, We are selling the exact same quality of Star Shirt at 50 cents. Not the Shirt we advertised at 99 cents; these still continue to sell at that price, and they have no equal for the money. But the Star Shirt, made by Hutchinson, Pierce & Co., which we are selling at 50c, is the same quality as . our neighbors make a great fuss about at 85 cents. Who buys one of these at 85 cents simply throws away 35 cents.
