GREAT INDIGNATION FELT THERE Spanish .Merchants Reluctant to lte ccive Him Bui'kUcni'rnl Howard's View of the Situntiou-Tlie Spituish Commander Evidently I'nnble to Copo With the Enemy Key West, Kin., Nov. 19. Passengers by the last steamer from Havana suy a report was current there that Captain General Weyler will return at once to the city. The Spanish merchants and others on .Muralla street are very in dignant over the report. St. Louis, Mo., Nov. 1. In an Inter view this morning anent the rumor that General Weyler hud resigned from the command of the Spanish forces In Cuba. General O. O. Howard, ex-com-mandlng general of the United States army, said: "As I see It, General Weyler was a beaten mmi, and it was time for him to resign. "His troops were whipped and his strategic resources were ut an end when he went back to Havana. The Individual rear movement of General Weyler showed the Inability of the Spanish army to dislodge the Insurg ents. If he could have whipped them he would have stayed and whipped them. . "My view of the Cuban war Is sim ply this: It is a question of finance, not of fighting. Spain is big enough to crush out every cane bush, as well as every insurgent in Cuba, if she can raise the money to pay and provision the troops required. But Spain has a mighty big job on her hands. It has already been clearly proved that tne Cubans are greater fighters, greater stratagetists and a great people. Whether Spain can raise enough money to pay enough men is something about which the world Is guessing." General Howard thinks the Cuban war has developed nothing new In military tactics. He declined to ex press an opinion as to whether the United States should interfere on be half of the Cuban Insurgents. Madrid, Nov. 1!). A dispatch to the Impurclal from Havana says that Cap tain General Weyler has reached the town of Sun Cristobal, about fourteen leagues northeast of the city of Flnar Del Kio and about midway between that city and Havana.

Secretary De Quesada, of the Cuban Junta, stated today that he had Just received most favorable news of the situation in Cu ba. "I have Just heard by mail." said Mr. be Quesada. "from General Carrlllo, In charge of the province of Las Villas. He Informs me that he has Just met General Sanchez, who was coming from the eastern department with reinforce ments, and that the situation presents a most cheerful aspect in that section, which embraces the larger half of the eastern end of Cuba. 1 have also re ceived letters from the eastern depart ment from Civil Governor Cespedes which are also very encouraging. He Is establishing puldle schools through out the Interior. The fact that we have already established civil government in the eastern half of the Island, which is entirely in our hands, and that schools have alreudy been Instituted, open to the less Intelligent, proves that our position In those provinces Is certainly a most strong one. Although nothing of Importance has reached me yet in relation to the military operations of the Cuban leaders, I have received word that the Cuban forces are graduully advancing; westward.

Before the larg est crowd ever seen at a horse sale In this country, and after a most sensa tional auction, John K. Gentry, the champion hurness horse of the world), passed Into the hands of Lewis j. Tewkesbury, of this city, for $19,900 at Madison Square Garden tonight. It was 8.:t0 o'clock when the band which was stationed over the main entrance of the gurdin struck up "Hall to the Chief," and Gentry wan with difficulty brought through the crowd to the front of the auctioneer's stand. The whole section of the west side of the garden, boxes and reserved seats, were as full as they could hold, while Inside the ring and on the miniature track the throng of people were pushing and fall ing over each other In their efforts to get a good glimpse of the pacing king;. Thirty-five hundred was a low esti mate of the number present. When the horse was fairly In front Of Auctioneer Ban, of Lexington, Ky.. who sold him here last Februury, when Willlum Simpson was the purchaser at $7,600, the band ceased playing. It was not. however, until the assistance of the police was called that space was made barely sufficient to allow the horse to move around. A cheer went up from the crowd, and in a few well chosen words the auctioneer called lor bids for the champion harness horse of the world, who had paced the fastest three heats ever accomplished, 2.03. 2.03V4. 2.03V. had lowered the harness record to 2.01 , and to crown his glory and indelibly stamp himseir lout ana king of the turf, had covered a mile against time In 2.00',i. a second faster than any other horse ever accomplished the distance In hurness. Bids came in with such rapidity that the auctioneer could scarcely keep traf k of them. Four, six. eight, ten ami eleven thousand dollars were offered from different parts of the house with scarcely breathing time between. But the real battle of bids was to come when the struggle narrowed down to two, Louis W. Wormser and Lewis (5. Tewkesbury, both of New York. Mr. Wormser came Into the battle at $12. 000, his bid being delivered In a loud, dear voice, and the crowd applnuded. Promptly Mr. Tewkesbury went $.100 better. Thus the battle waged be tween the two with scarcely a moments hesitation up to JIG.f.UO, which was Tewkesbury's bid. Then there was a pause, followed by a round of hand clapping from the audience who were by this time worked up Into a state of excited admiration. The applause greeted Wornisers jump to $18,000. Scarcely had It died away when the other came back at him with his rise of $jU0. There was another short pause and Wormser shouted $19,500. No re ply followed for a moment and then tension could be felt. "What is bid," asked Mr. Tewkesbury. "19,.r.00." WUS the reply. Then I raise It $400. The auctioneer turned to Mr. Wormser expectantly. There was no reply and on the "three" the auctioneer's tavel fell. The gal lant son of Ashland Wilkes and Dame Wood, who stood, like the thoroughbred he is, the pressure of the crowd and the strains of the bund, became the prop erty of the owner of Robert J., the only horse that hud shown himself a dan gerous rival to the king, who will in future be his comrade. With Gentry, Robert J., (2.01 1-2) and Mascot (2.04), Mr. Tewkesbury lias a stable of phenomenal greatness. The rest of the horses sold today brought fairly good prices. TOLL GATES LEVELLED.

SETTLED ONE QUESTION. Proceedings of the tiuight of Labor Convcutiou. Rochester, N. Y., Nov. 19. The dele gates to the general assembly of the Knights of Labor settled one important question this morning. The question was that of dual membership, and was discussed all the morning. While It does not affect all trades. It affects that of the brewery workingmen, the mem bers of which generally belong to both the Knights of Labor and the American Federation of Labor. A year ago the American Federation decided that their members could not belong to other labor organizations, nnd today the Knights followed suit, so far as the brewers were concerned, and decided that they must withdraw from either one or the other. The question whether the generul assem bly shall simply endorse free silver, or Insert a free silver plank, In the pre amble of the order, was discussed again this afternoon. At the conclusion of the debate the Knights voted not to put the free coin age of silver plank Into their preamble, but adopted the plank as a principle. The idea of putting the plank Into the preamble originated with General Mas ter Workman J. R. Sovereign, but the Knights thought that by its being put into the preamble it would debar from the organization all who were not free sllverites. The discussion occupied a greater part of two days. CRONIN TRIES TO ESCAPE. The Desperate Prisoner Leaps from a Flying TrainWarden McCrea Is Killed Outright. Pittsburg. Nov. 19. Patrick Cronln. aged 29, now a prisoner In the Western Penitentiary, made a desperate effort this morning while enroute from Erie to Pittsburg to escape from a fast moving train. His unsuccessful attempt cost the life of Thomas McCrea, war den of the Erie county jail. At 7 o'clock this morning Warden McCrea and Deputy Sheriff J. F. Giebel left Kt'le on the Cleveland branch of the Pittsburg and Lake Erie railway, w ith sixteen men and one woman, pris oners, who had been sentenced to serve terms In the Western Penitentiary in Allegheny City. Among the prisoners was Patrick Cronln. sentenced to serve live yenrs for train robberies. The prisoners were nervous and excited al most from the start, causing much anx iety to the otticers In charge. All pos sible precautions had been taken. Cron ln wus handcuffed to a convict named Shuhart. The latter was noticed to be especially restless and once or twice made movements as if jumping from the car window. He was quited, how ever, when Deputy Giebel presented his revolver and threatened to shoot him. Cronln had, however, been hard at work and had, unnoticed, slipped his handcuff. When about 11 miles out of Pittsburg, quicker than a Hash, he leaped from the car door, landing In a heap on the tracks. Warden McCrea leaped from the car after him and grappled with him. The train was quickly stopped and Deputy Giebel went to the assist ance of Warden McCrea. The latter was found unconscious from numerous bruises and cuts and Cronln also seri ously hurt. They were curried to the train and brought to Allegheny. At the depot an ambulance from the gen eral hospital was In waiting to convey Warden McCrea to that institution, but he died before the hospital was reach ed. A patrol wagon conveyed Cronln to the Western penitentiary, where he now lies In the hospital department, perhaps fatally Injured. No further trouble was experienced with the other prisoners after the ex citing escape from the train. Warden McCrea wus married and has a lurge family residing in Erie. COW DINES ON CLEAN CLOTHES.

There were no callers of political Importance at the McKlnley residence today, though the report that General Horace Porter, of New York, was In Cleveland, and ex pected to spend the night here, set tongues wagging. General Porter did not come, however, but will visit Can ton a few days later on his return from St. Louis. He Is talked of In connec tion with the position of secretary of war. Colonel Fred Grant and General K. E. Alger, of Michigan, are the other names still most prominently mentioned In that connection. The cabinet makers are suggesting John Kussell Young, of Philadelphia, for secretary of the navy, and rumors come from Chicago that Lyman Gage, president of the First National bank of that city, may be urged for secre tary of the treasury. The statement that Joseph P. Smith Is to be appointed marshal of the Dis trict of Columbia has not been verified. Mr. Smith is one of Major McKlnley's etlkient and loyal adherents and his selection for this or an equally good place would be no surprise.
