MAXIMO ZERTUCHA THE TRAITOR The Crowning Act of Hnrbarity in Simiu's Inhuman Wnrfare;cncral Weyler Kendily Consents to l'uy a Price for the Death of the Cuban I.LnderBntchcred in Cold Hlood. New York, Deo. 13. The Sun today in a special dispatch from Havana pub lishes the following account of the as sassination of General Maceo: Havana, Dec. 9, via Key West, Dec. 12. A commissioner from the insurg ent camp came to Havana this morn ing and brought news to the Cuban junta here that Antonio Maceo, I'an cho Gomtz, and othed members of the staff of Maceo had been assassinated by the Spaniards In accordance with a plan contrived through Dr. Maxlmu Zertucha, by the Manpiis of Ahumada, second in command or Segundo Cabo of the captain generalcy of the Island of Cuba. The ddegute of the Junta In Ha vana was very much surprised at this startling statement. He knew by a communication he received from Ma ceo on the 5th that the Cuban leader had passed the trocha safely on the 4th. That same day the rumor spread in Havana that the trocha had been forced by the Cuban leader, and next day it was said for the tlrst time In the city that Maceo hud been killed In an encounter with the forces of Major Cirujeda. As the Cuban delegate had no news of that encounter, and as the last word he had received from Maceo was proof that he was alive the day before, the delegate sent a dispatch to New York emphatically denying the report of Maceo's death. STOKY OF THK MURDER What the junta knows about Muceo'g murder Is the following: F.arly in November Maceo received a mysterious message which appeared to come from the Marquis of Ahumada, with full authority from General Wey lcr personally. Nothing was written, the message was only verbal. "You know what you risk," said Ma ceo to the messenger. 'Any man com ing to my ramp to bring and proposal of peace which Is not based on the full Independence of the Island of Cuba can be sure of being hanged." "1 know it," was the answer, "and I come to offer you an Interview with the Marquis of Ahumada, to arrange the terms for the evacuation of the island by the Spunlsh troops." At this conference only Rrlgadler Mlro, chief of the staff of Maceo, was present. "Well." answered Maceo, "go and tell the Marquis of Ahumada that I will consider the thing and give him an answer. Maceo Immediately gathered his staff, and explaining the situation, asked the opinion of his subordinates. llrlgadler Mlro expressed his belief that the whole thing waB a scheme of the Spaniards to catch Maceo In a trap. Hut Dr. Maximo Zertucha tried to con vince the Cubun leader that it was wise to meet tin- Marquis of Ahumada, as the llnancial situation of Spain clearly Indicated thut the Spanish army would soon have to abandon the light. Though Maceo was satisfied that the situation of Spain Indicated a coining crisis he accepted the views of Mlro and resolved to wait, thinking It strange that the tlrst proposals for peace should be made to him and not to General Gomez. Maceo was a very modest and unambitious man, ami as brave as he was faithful to his superi ors. Without first knowing the opin ion of General Gomez he would never enter into any kind of treaty. When this first attempt of the Span ish failed, Weyler returned to Havana to confer with the Marquis of Ahu mada. This Is the explanation of the sudden return of the butcher to the capital after he started to 1'innr Del ltio to take personal command of the Spanish forces with the promise that before his return the revolution should be crushed. He brought with him to Pinar Del Wo Senor liarrera, the chief of police of Havana, because he was sure that Maceo was going to fall into the trap and that he would be able to catch the Cuban general alive. Senor liarrera's mission as chief of police was to carry Maceo to Havana as a com mon criminal, bound hand and foot. Success was belli veil to be sure nt the time by nil the Intransigent Spaniards here, who rejoiced beforehand at the expected event. That a trap was planned In the palace was rumored among them, and had their highest ap proval. CAMPOS SPt'IINED THE OFFEU. It Is known that when Captain Gen eral Martinez Campos returned to Havana from Hayaino, after the bat tle of Pcralejo. some Spaniards in the capital suggested to him to pay a large sum of money to some traitor In the Cuban ranks to assassinate Gomez or Maceo. "Even two millions of dollars," was said to Campos, "could be paid for the lives of those two men. Without them the revolution will fall completely in a short time, and the revolution will cost Spain hundreds of times that." "if you propose that scheme to me seriously," answered Martinez Campos to the Spaniard who spoke in the name of the others,"you are not a patriot and you are not a gentleman. I prefer to see Spain In the abyss of defeat rather than to stain my conscience and my name with such a crime." The suggestion was never made again to Campos, but as soon as Weyler land ed It was renewed to him. Weyler ac cepted with joy. and aimed at Gomez as his first victim, but Gomez is a very suspicious man. and permits to ap proach him only those in whom he has full confidence. The only way of as sassinating Gomez Is In the middle of an engagement by one of his own troops, but then the traitor risks being seen and torn to pieces by the patriots. AVhen Maceo invaded the province of Pinar del Rio for the second time the second attempt at his assassination was planned, and Maximo Zertueha, the surgeon, was found as the traitor to carry out the crime. First liarrera, the chief of police, sueceded In com municating with Zertucha. Afterward the traitor had communications with the Marquis of Ahumada. through Col onel Tort, who before the war was an intimate friend of Zertucha, and to whom, as arranged previously, the traitor surrendered yesterday in San Felipe. The record of Zertucha' life is full of treasons and acts of dishonor. What Is inexplicable Is how Maceo kept him on his staff for such a long time, not withstanding all the warnings given him against the man. But Maceo was very noble and Zertucha a great hypo crite. Maceo always said that some Continued on Page 2. MORGAN IN CONTROL. He Represent the Majority of Stock in the New 'ork Central. New York. Dec. 13. J. Pierpont Mor gan, it was said In a report published today, represents a majority of the stock of the New York Central and Hudson River Railway company und will soon crowd out the Vanderbilt in terest from the management. Chaun cey M. Depew was descrilied as intend ing to resign the presidency of the road and go as ambassador to England un der Mr. McKlnley'8 administration. Mr. Depew said to a representative for the New York Times today: "The Vanderbllts have not had a controlling interest in the New York Central stock since isso. when William H. Vanderbilt sold $:tu.U0fl.UUO in stock to Knglish buyers represented by the Morgan house. Mr. W. H. Vanderbilt thought that the ownership of a majority of the shares of the compan by one person or family would be to the detriment of the property. "Though the public used and profited by the railroad It would be more likely to complain of one than many owners. It was deemed advisable to diffuse the ownshlp among many -persons and there is now lo.OOO stockholders. "To return to Mr. Morgnn, he came into the board with Cyrus Field, whom he nominated In 1RS0, when the English sale ot shares was made, Mr. Morgan's house continued to represent the Eng lish shareholders. His advice in the management has. been invaluable. He Is a great upholder of credit and his re lations with other roads and with the banking world makes his counsel, it is said invaluable, just as the Vander bilt's are InvaluaLle with their. Knowl edge of railroad management. "Mr. Morgan's relations with the Vanderlillts and with the company are up to this minute precisely v hat they have been for a long time, and the cor dial co-operation will continue to ex ist. Since the sale of $:UU0.000 to Eng lish investors, the capital stock of the company has been Increased from $S9. OUO.ouu to $100,isHl.00O. The English have not increased proportionately." As for ambassador to England or sec retary of state, or any other position In the administration, Mr. Depew said he had not been offered any, and conse quently it was of no use for him to say what he would do. SPAIN'S DEFENDER, Jeff Brown, ol Key West, Explains How It Might Be Possible That Maceo Was Killed in a Fair Fight. Jacksonville. Fla., Dec. 13. Jefferson R Drown, of Key West, a gentleman who keeps In thorough touch with the Cuban news, does not believe that Ma ceo was murdered under a flag of truce. Mr. Browne, who was at the Hotel la clfic last night, enroute home from Galveston. Tex., said: "No, I do not believe he was mur dered, for several reasons. In the first place, Maceo Is no fool, and would not have been led into ambush on a pre text of negotiating a treaty of peace with Generul Ahumada; second, In command of the Spanish army of Cu ba, und hence not authorized to con duct so i'nportaiit a negotiation. Ma eo also knew that he had no right, be ing second in cninpiand himself, to con duct such negotiations, it being in th! province only of the commauder-ln-chiel of the Imil'geiit sforces, Maximo Gomez Is the only person w ho should handle such a subject. "If we analyze we fuel that, first. It was repcrted that Maceo was dend. The Spanlaids laimed he was dead; they were not thoroughly convinced of it, while the Cubans denied the truth of the report and said it was only an other Spanish lie. They did not know then that he was dead. After huvlnsr learned that he wan really dead, how did they learn of the circumstances surrounding his death except from some one who was acquainted with the fact.". Who was that man. Dr. Zer tucha. the otdy one whi. escaped the Spanish bullets. Yet they deny -r-lucha's version because he surrendered to the Spaniards and because they did not like him. "I think that Maceo endenvored to cross the trocha by land, and finding that he could not do so without great peril, concluded to go around it by water that he happened to fall into the hands of a detachment of Spanish troops, and he was slain fairly and honestly. "You will remember that when Marti was killed at the beginning of the war a similar story was set afloat as to how he met his death, Spanish treachery being charged. If the Spaniards are callable of such treachery as has been charged, then certainly Maceo, who had had the best of opportunities to study their war methods and charac ter, would not have trusted himself Into their hands with a view to doing something that neither he nor the man alleged to have made the Invitation, was authorized to do." - - .

CUBAN AFFAIRS TO THE FRONT Discussion of the Death of Maceo In dicnles a Sentiment in Favor of the lusurgculs-.The Dinglcy Bill May lie Couhidcred Again nnd Military Appropriation Hill Probably lie Pound on the Calendar. Washington, Dec. 13. Among the pa pers that will lie laid before the house tomorrow, will be the documents in the matter of the contest by Alexis Benoit for the seat from the Fifth Louisiana district for the present term of the Fifty-fourth eoncress, for which Mr. C. J. Uoatner holds a certificate as the result of a special election held Novem ber 3 last. Messrs. Uoatner and lle nolt were opponents at the election In 1X1)4. at which time Mr. Uoatner re ceived a certificate for the full term. Itut he was unseated last spring as the result ot a contest by Ilenoit. The house, however, refused to give the contestant the seat for the reason that while Mr. Hoatner's election was In valid for intimidation and fraud Mr. ltenolt did not receive a BUtticlent num ber of votes to warrunt the house in de claring him elected. So they tried It over again last month and now Mr. Henoit asks the house to review the election, Cuban affairs are also likely t come to the front at any moment. Mr. Al len, who the other day called up the Dlngley bill, will do so again .When a favorable opportunity offers itself. In the house of representatives to morrow is District of Columbia day un der the rules. The bill defining the rights of the purchasers of the franchise and prop erty of the Atlantic and Pacific Rail road company sold under forclosure of the mortgage authorized by the act of 1ST1, will come up, probably on Tues day. It Is within the power of the house under the conditions now pre vailing to give as much time as may be desired to the consideration of this measure. The military appropriation bill Is ex pected to be on the calendar in time for discussion Wednesday and the legislative, executive and Judicial bill by Thursday. It Is among the proba bilities that adjournment for the holi day, recess will be taken on Friday. The subject was discussed by the Re publican members of the committee on ways and means Saturday, but no con clusion was reached. The reeess.when iver it begins, Is expected to extend until Monday or Tuesday after New Year's Day. DISCUSSING MACEO'S DEATH. Little else was discussed In Wash ington ' todiiy among diplomats and politicians but the tragic death of In surgent General Maceo. The senti ment here among all classes is decid edly with Insurgents and expressions of sympathy were heard on all sides for the ultimate success of the Cuban cause. The subject of Maceo's death will be brought up In congress tomorrow, most probably In the senate, where several resolutions recognizing Cuban bellig erency ure pending. It Is less ditltcult to bring the subject up there than In the house, where the rules restrict ac tion. Chairman Hitt. of the house for eign affairs committee, was not In a position tonight, he said, to discuss the subject of Maceo's death. The news was too conllictlnir und indefinite, and he was In favor of waiting until the details of the circumstances assuming that Maceo is dead. Is received through the rnlted States ofllclal channels. Mr. Hitt, because of bis prominent position, Is cautious, and he voices the general sentiment of the conservative element ill both parties. There Is in both branches of congress a large num ber who are ready to recognize Cuban belligerency whether thr Maceo Inci dent proves correct or not. Senator lilanchard, of Louisiana, rep resents this element when he declared tonight that he was read' at any time to vote for a resolution recognizing either the In inherency of the Cubans, or. better still, their independence. Senator Piatt, of Connecticut, said the mendacious character of the news of Cuba for the past six months and Its utter unreliabletiess, prevents him from expressing any opinion. "Nobody knows," he declared with emphasis, "whether Maceo Is dead or olive. If dead how he met his death, or any of the essential details upon which to base un intellgent opinion and un til I do I will not speak as to what ought to be done or Indicate how I will act." Senator Thurston, of Nebraska, abl he would vote to enter the protest of this government against the manner I of warfare being carired on In Cuba, and Mr. McMillan, of Tennessee, and llerry, of Kentucky, favored some ac tion by the government which would show to the world that the I'nlled States did not stand Idly by and by Its silence approve of the methods of the Spanish government against Cuba. It Is not believed that a resolution to In vestigate the manner In which Maceo met his death will be offered in con gress, even Cuban symoathlers do not think such a mater in within the power of this government, ns Maceo Is a Spanish subject and his death. If dead, occurred on Spanish soil; but it will be within the province of the I'nlted States consul general at Havana to in stitute such inouiries und for congress to call for and net upon his report. The matter will doubtless take tills course. BOOTBLACK RUNS AMUCK. rdwnrd llrooks Shoots Five Persons, One Fatally. Waco, Tex., Dec. 13. Edward llrooks, a colored bootblack, aged 17, ran amuck last night with a revolver In his hand and shot five persons, one fatally. He started on the east side of the city by shooting two colored men, Inflicting flesh wounds. Leaving them he tried to shoot a woman, but the pistol failed to work. He then took a street car and went to the Bant 1st Tabernacle where he shot two more colored men, one In the leg and the other In the arm.

Major McKinley enjoyed a restful Sunday. He walked to church In the morning and later on he called ul his mother's, where he remained to dinner. There will be a number of vis itors of wide reputation this week, nnd among them will be Mr. Hanna. It Is believed he has made up his mind to go Into the cabinet if offered a place as he doubtless will be. There Is no probability, however, that the two daces In the cabinet, the pivotal places, as It were, thut of secretary of slate, and secretary of tho treasury, will be lllled before the middle of January. Major McKinley Is giving the problems which confront him due consideration, and he will not permit himself to be hurried. The New York situation Is a complicated one and may be solved by the selection of two cabinet olllcers from that state, one a man to whom l'latt Is friendly and one particularly acceptable to the original McKinley men. C. H. Pdlss. Andrew D. White, Horace Porter, Stewart I,. Woodford and J. S. Fassett are the names most frequently heard here when the New York situation Is under discussion. One tiling is certain, nnd that Is that no one In New York state has yet been offered n cabinet portfolio. Candidates for other than cabinet places are beginning to manifest them selves in Canton. William H. Ilann, of Ohio, is an active candidate for the Important position of commission of pensions. Visitors to Canton who have talked with Major McKinley about turiff legis lation indicate that he Is not in favor! of an extreme measure of any sort and that he Impressed upon those congress men with whom he discussed the mat ter the Idea that no bill will do, that shall not be fair, thurough and so ade quate that with a little revision from I time to time, it will stand for ten or twelve years and give the country an era of normal prosperity and freedom from tariff agitations.

CONDITION OF THE RACERS Hale and Rice Seemed to Have Suffered Little from the Strain Reading and Forster In a Bad Way. New York, Dec. 13. "Teddy" Hale, although somewhat stiff and pore to day, did not seem much the worse for winning tho championship of the world in a six days' bicycle race. When he spoke, however. It was apparent that the clear smoke in the Garden has done its work. As soon ns he could get away from the scene of the race Saturday night, Hale was taken to a bathing establish ment, where he was massaged and al lowed to sleep fourteen hours at Inter vals, the longest period being live hours. During tb? race he had only eight hours sleep. Ills appetite was enormous every day of the rave, us wus also that of Rice, who complained that his trainers were trying to starve him. Hale's managers calculations show that the winner traveled just thirty five miles more Hum his final score of l.'.UO miles arid S hips, and that by leav ing the track for the short races he lost about sixty-eight miles. On this fig uring Hale would very likely have es tablished a record of over 2.0'M1 miles had he adopted different tactics. ' Starting tomorrow Hale will begin an engagement at one of the local va riety thi .iters. Tbe other members of th" foreign party will go either to Hal tlmore or Washington and then on a tour of the cities. The proposed Aus tralian tour has been abandoned ow ing to the success of Hale. v Rice, the Wilkes-l'.iirre machinist. who finished second to Hale, was as strong as a lion today nnd In condl tlon. he said, to ride a fifty-mile race in fast time. He returned to the Put nam house early In the morrlng a'ter a visit to a Turkish bath, during which he slept for four nnd a half hours at Intervals. His appetite was something remarkable. He suffered very little during the race, physically, and lost onlv one pound during the week. His mind wandered n bit to wards the close of the race, but he Is nil ri'jht now. The lack of attention Monday and Tuesday destroyed his chances for first prize. Practlcolly he might as well have had no attention nt nil. on Wednesday when ho was In such bud condition, Michael Hreslin went to his assltance and brought hlin around all rlirht and keot him In con dition until the arrival of Harry Pump, bell, from Wilkes-llarre. Campbell said today that Rice had trained very little for the race. "Ill fact." said he. "all the training he did wus to work on his bicycle until 11 o'clock every night during the week before the race. He built the machine he rode." This was Rice's first long rare, al though In ISH2 he started in one, but was forced to quit. He believes- now that with the experience gained in I his race be could cover ..000 miles within six days. He says he would like lo race nguinsl Hale aain, and could get plent) of backiii! if the Irishman wishes a match. The Wilkes-1 Sai nt man will leave fur home Wednesday Reading, of Nebraska, was in a bad way today. His knees were swollen, and he was suffering from a cold. Ilnrrv Maddux was in fine condition after the long ride. Foi-sti r probably suffered more than nn of the others. His face showed the strain under which he hud labored.
