2 STORY OF THE DEATH OF MACEO The Rebel .' Leader Struck by Two Bullets. HIS BODY CANNOT BE FOUND Dr. Zertncha, Who Surrendered to Spaniards, Give an Accont of the Full of the Insurgent CicneralHis Iludy Kcuioved By the Kebcl--C-baut at Philadelphia Mo Longer Doubt the Story. Havana, Dec. 11. Dr. Maximo Zer-tui-ha, formerly the physician of An tonio Maoeo. the second in command of the insurgent forces, who, after the death of Maceo, surrendered to General Tort at San Felipe, has been inter viewed by a reported of La Lucha, one of the leading newspapers of this city. Dr. Zertucha says that Maceo Intended to attempt to cross the trocha on De cember 3, but was prevented by sick ness from doins so. On the next day, however, it was announced that ho would not march across the trocha with his men. but would go by water around the end of the trocha and meet an Insurgent force on the Havana side of the line. Two bonts were according ly prepared, they being painted black in order to prevent their being seen and the oars were muffled. They could not be heard. At night Maceo and twenty-six men embarked and passed in front of the town of Mariel at the northern extremity of the western trocha without being seen by any of the Spanish sentries thereabouts. The rebel leader Mlro and several other commanders of rebel bands ac companied Maceo. The short voyage was accomplished without the slightest mishap and the party landed at the point selected without being discov ered. When on December 4, the engagement took place between the rebels and Ma jor Clrujedas' commund, Maceo was encamped with -'.00U men. When the Spanish force appeared Maceo divided his men Into two wings, his Intention being to surround the Spanish column. He remained alone wih his start for a moment, watching the fighting, and exclaimed: ' This goes well." HIT BY TWl) BKLLETS. Shortly afterwards he was hit by two bull"ts as heretofore detailed In these dispatches, one striking him on the chin, breaking his Jaw and pass ing out at the Junction of the neck and shoulder, and the other striking him in the abdomen. Klther wound would have caused death, and the rebel Kad er expired in a short time. Thf rebeN who were fighting desper ately apainst the Spanish attack, were par.ic stricken when they heard of the d.nth of their chief. They Med In dis order, not making any attempt then to take Maceo's body with them. The Spaniards then returned to Punta Ura vr. with their dead and wounded. When the field was clear some of the rebels returned and carlred Maceo's body on with them. Dr. Zertucha says that he does not know where the remains were buried, and thus far the search made bv tht Spaniards has proved fruitless. Philadelphia, Dec. ll.-Very little doubt remains in Cuba' circles in this city of the death of Antonio Maceo, the Cuban leader. News came to hand today from private sources which a; knowlertged that no further doubt of Maceo'h death can exist. This informa tion ccmes directly from Cuban agents on the inland, and is Intended to finish the uncertainty in the minds of the Cuban residents here. it was characterized as being abso lutely authentic and as making an end of any possibility that the accounts of the general's tragic end could be untrue. industries Waiting. Ths Possibilities of a War With Spain Has Slightly Affected Business In terests Wheat Market Weakens. . New York, Dec. 11. R. O. Dun & Co. wil say tomorrow in their weekly Review of Trade: . Approach of holidays and doubt at the action of fongress put off further improvement until new year. While inustries have gained in working force, they are waiting for commensurate gain in demand and meanwhile are trying to clear away embarrassments which restrict them. Speculation has been halting and timid. There is no sober minded fear of foreign difficulty but some have succeeded In Imaging that congress might go so far beyond the president's prudent message re garding Cuba as to embroil this coun try with Spain. Money is in abundant supply, lending In London continues and there is nothing to cause less ac tivity In general business except that the rush of orders deferred until after the election has not been continued. The volume of business shown by clearings has been for the week 5.2 per cent, smaller than last year. Earn ings on railroads In November were J0.9 per cent, less than last year and 12.2 per cent, less than in 1892. The wheat market has weakened with less gloomy news from other countries and larger western receipts. Disappointment about the break in prices help to Increase receipts.

Few of the many railroad corpora tions can show a list of men longer In actual service than can the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western company. Very little change has been made up on that road In many years, either in management or Its men: and veterans who have served so faithfully almost from its Infancy to Its present day can point with honest pride to their many years of service. In April. 1897. three conductors of this svstem. Edward Maghran, Chris. Heavers and J. E. DeKay will have completed twenty years in continuous service as passenger conductors. There were four conductors who commenced In this line of service in the month of CONDUCTOR EDWARD MAGHRAN, April. 1S77. but one of them. H. T. Bol les, gave up his train in 1894, to take the position of train master on the New England railroad, under the su perlntendency of Joseph King, formerly a conductor on the Syracuse and Bing hamton division of the Delaware, Lackawnnna and Western. The oldest of these three conductors Is Edward Mughran, who commenced railway life In 1S6U on this road as brakemnn on coal trains. In the fall of 1SG2 he was promoted to the position of conductor on a train of that class. In those days (war times) men were rapidly promoted and were made con ductors then in a shorter time than It takes a man today to get a first class Job as brakeinan. A strange accident happened to Con ductor Msghran's train at Water Gap in the fall of 1S67. On a dark and stormy night, his train broke In two about a mile east of Water Gap station. the engineer, with the head end of the train, running quite a distance before discovering his loss. . Missing the caboose he stopped, sent a man hack, then backing up to the rest of the train coupled on and pro ceeded. The next morning at Hampton Junc tion Maghran was asked by the agent as to the whereabouts of one of his coal cars. "You are short car so and so," said the agent, giving the num ber. Maghran was dumbfounded, as he knew It was In the train, for he had Been It and had checked the number upon the bill. The mystery was solved the next day. The car was found where they had broke In two at Water Gap partly down the bank and nicely clearing the track. The car had evidently got tired of its company, so off the track it went and over the rail then down the bank, Clearing the rest of the train. No one noticed It or detected Its absence from the train. In April, 1877. Conductor Maghran In recognition of his. past faithful ser vice was., promoted to the position of passenger conductor on Train G26, run ning between Blnghamton and Hobo ken, and has been, within a few months, twenty years on that run, a longer time on one run. It Is safe to say, than any other conductor In this country; and this without an accident to his train through any fault or mis management upon his part. Conductor Maghran is now In the prime of life and doubtless will be able to "punch tickets" for man" years to come. He is pleasantly situated with his family, consisting of his wife and six children. In a cozy home on Murray street, Blnghamton, and finds In that home after his Journey Is ended his chief enjoyment with those who make life a source of happiness to him. At thp meptlncr nf . Vi unM,l .7 ! - tors of the Pennsylvania Railroad, held on weonesaay, tne following appoint ments were approved: Almet E. Reed, from superintendent Sunbury division to superintendent Altoona division, to fill vacancy caused by death of Robert E. Marshall; W. B. McCale, from su perintendent Bedford division to super intendent Sunbury division, and F. P. Abercrombie from assistant ' engineer, Eastern and Susquehanna division, to superintendent Bedford division. OLYPIIANT.

We bought from one of thelarg. est Cloak manufacturers in the United States, Ten Thousand Dol lars $10,000 worth of High Grade Jackets and Capes at prices less than cost of manufacture. This season has been a treach erous one for cloak manufacturers' and dealers. Therefore, having made such a heavy purchase of High Grade Goods, and in order to protect ourselves, we will slaughter those handsome gar mentS at prices never belore heard of in the history of Scranton. PAR S Wallace THE CLOAK TRADE Has had a trifle the worst of the weath er. Mild weather and a brisk cloak trade seldom come together.
