In the district of Oamngucy, Cuba, by the patriots, arrived in this city today in the form of a personal letted from General Calixto Garcia to the Junta. It was dictated to one of his adjutants who brought it to this city. The report of the siege and capture which was cabled here some time ago has been denied by the Spanish au thorities, but the Cuban loaders in this city declare that General Gaicia's let ter leaves no doubt now that the report was correct. It states that the siege of the Harri sons of 295 men In the twelve small forts in the town lasted twelve days. When the officers surrendered the Cu bans took as prisoners all the men In charge of the forts, which Included one captain, two lieutenants, two sub-lleu-tennnts, eighteen sergeants, one sur geon and sixteen corporals. All the of ficers were paroled, but the men were sent to the mountains to work on the Cuban plantations. The constitution of the Cuban Government provides for the release of these prisoners nnd it was- at the request of the men that they were sent to the plantations, the letter states. The booty captured by General Oar cia's men was a great boon to the pa triots. It Included MO "ivntenes" (a gold piece worth $.1.30 and other moneys aggregating $21,000, two hundred Mau ser lilies, U'5 rounds of ammunition, six pack mules loaded with medicines and store and olHt machetes, besides a quantity of clothing.

The letter Kays that not only did Garcia's army capture the town, but enough arms and ammunition as well to fit out four hundred recruits. In the battle ISO Spaniards were taken prisoners. This confirmation has caused the Cubans here to rejoice, as Guaimaro is the most Interior town thus far taken by the Cubans, and hns been consid ered a Spanish stronghold.

The Chicago Suicide Was Edgar l.yttlc of Pittsburg. Pittsburg.Nov. 30. Until seven weeks ago, Edgar Lyttle, the suicide of the Kimball hotel, Chicago, who killed him self Sunday, worked for a Pittsburg firm. He worked around Pittsburg for a year, coming from Uuyton, Ohio, and made only one friend, and even to him the mysterious individual would not say a word as to his previous life. He was a terrible pufferer from acute dys pepsia. He had studied medicine as a veterinary surseon, and that may ac count for the extraordinary manner in which he wrote down his feelings and sensations as the deadly druff gradually stole his life away. Lyttle was a traveling salesman for the United Typewriter Supply corpnany of this city. The man who employed him and who was his only friend in Pittsburg, is Henry F. Gilg, until re cently manager of that company. Gilg said tonight: "All the description of this mysterious suicide in Chicago points to the man belnj Edgar Lyttle. He was suffering all the time with dys pepsia and in fact I never saw him eat, although he was frequently at my house and my wife pressed him to have dinner with us. He always declined, saying he suffered so badly. He was all right in his accounts with me, seven weeks a;:o, when I left the company. I know he studied as a veterinary In Ohio some time In his life. He had no regular boarding place In this city. While I knew him he never threatened suicide." BRYAN TALKS ON SILVER Expresses His Assurance That the Elec tion Can Be by No Mean3 Regarded as a Conclusive Settlement. New York, Nov. 30. In the December number of the North American Kevlew, published tomorrow, Mr. Bryan pre sents an article, in which be discusses the result of the election ns affecting the status of the silver question. The issue on which the election turns he describes as "the greatest Issue ever submitted t the American people in time of peace." The result, Mr. IJry an declares to be temporary defeat, but permunent gain for the cause of bimet allism. Mr. Hryan regards It as a sig nificant fact that the silver sentiment was strongest where the question had been longest considered; that Is to say, in the west nnd south. Tho gold sen timent prevailed in the eastern states, but even there, In Mr. Uryan's opin ion, the cause of bimetallism made more rapid progress than any cause ever made In such a short time. Mr. I'ryan expresses his assurance that the election can be by no means regarded ns a conclusive settlement of the questions at Issue. Mr. Hryan counsels the Republican party to re member that thousands of Republi cans have been held to their party this year by the pledge that they will try to secure international bimetallism. In regard to the gold standard Dem ocrats, Mr. Bryan Is assured that they cannot do as much harm in 1900 as they have done this year. "They can not," he says, "disguise themselves again. The contest for financial inde pendence will go on. We undertook the contest with a disorganized army: we emerged from it a united and dis ciplined force, without the loss of a soldier'. We are ready for another contest. We believe that we are right, and believing that right will finally tdi umph, we face the future of the party In the belief that bimetallism will be restored." 0. A.

IKx-Secretary of the Treasury Foster Is a guest at the Fifth Avenue hotel. In an Interview today with a reporter of the United As sociated Presses, he said that In a re cent conversation had with ex-Senator Piatt, of New York, the latter heartily endorsed C. N. Bliss for secretary of the CDARLU FOSTEB. navy. He thought the acceptance of any place in the cabinet on the part of Mr. Hanna would belittle him. He declared he had achieved more distinc tion and reputation than is ordinarily achieved by a public man in a life time, and his position is highly honorable. As fame is the only reward for public cilice he has reached the zenith, and holding public olllce might detract from it but could not add to it. With regard to tha Ohio senatorshlp, Mr. Foster said he had always an ambi tion to be senator. "I would V a candidate now," he continued, "but for my financial misfortunes and I inny be a candidate anyway." Mr. Foster spoke enthusiastically of Senator Sher man's fitness for the treasury portfolio. He had not seen Major McKinley, how ever, and had no inkling as to his cabinet state. He did not know of any cabinet candidates in Ohio. He did not think it wise to put a sound money Democrat In the cabinet. "The cabinet," he continued, "should be harmonious In every respect. It would be somewhat incongruous to have a gold tree trade Democrat In the cabinet." SUIT TO ANNUL A MARRIAGE. Dcnthlird Wedding in Wisconsin At tncked by the Relatives. Kenosha, Wis., Nov. 30.

Roche was arrested yesterday afternoon on a war rant sworn out by Chief of Police Ro bling before Aldermun Millar charging attempted bribery of a police ofllcer. Roche gave ball in the sum of $r00 for his appearance at court. John E. Grimes, of the firm of Grimes & Flan nery, proprietors of the Arlington, qual ified as his bondsman. The story told by Chief Robllng Is that Roche met Lieutenant John Davis on Lackawanna avenue a week ago and slipped an envelope in the lieutenant's fist. The lieutenant walked over where the light would shine on It and opened it, taking out the greenback in the presence of two otlicers. The lieutenant then put the money back and went to the rooms where a poker establishment Is conducted, gave the money to the proprietor and went avay. s Chief Holding says that there Is evidence against Roche for trying to bribe Patrolman Marker on another oc casion. A GAMBLING HOUSE ATTACHE. Accompanying Roche when he tried to grease the palm of the lieutenant's hand was an attache of a gambling house, and that led the lieutenant to suspect David's game. The next morn ing he told Chief Robling about It. the chief spoke to Mayor Bailey, and after a careful consideration they came to the conclusion to swear out a war rant for him. Chief of Police Robling Is of the opinion that Roche's companion, when Roche handed the envelope to the lieu tenant, was not a party to the trans action. He was apparently made a catspnw by Roche. Roche before meet ing Davis visited the gambling estab lishment referred to and asked for money, saying It was to be used in the interest of "the house." It was refused him. He then left, after asking the companion mentioned to accompany him and gave the envelope containing the money to Davis. READY FOR FIGHT.
