VOL. IX THE DALLES, OREGON, TUESDAY, MARCH 31. 1896. NO 71 CRISIS NEAR IT HAND Province of Havana Swarm ing With Insurgents. THEY ARE DOING MUCH DAMAGE Large Faroes of Spanish Troops Harry in g to Meet Them--Haceo Com mands the Rebels. Key West, March 30. (Sent from Havana March 28 to avoid prees censor ship.) Twenty-five thousand insurgents under General Maceo are swarming over the provinces of Havana and Pinardel Rio destroying property, ripping up rail ways and tearing down telegraph lines. Forty-five thousand Spanish soldiers are in the same territory, and more are coming. General Maceo is in immediate com mand of the center column of rebels with about 9,000 men. General Maceo is in the southern part of Havana with about 6,000, and General La Crete is hovering about the outskirts of Havana with about 6,000 cavalry. The other 4,000 men are divided into small bands of pillagers. The insurgents are well equipped and have plenty of ammuni tion, and are capable of giving the soldiers a warm reception. The activity noticeable about the palace of General Weyler seeir.s to bear out the idea that a crisis is near at hand. SUICIDED BY SHOOTING. Max Friendly, a Liquor Merchant, Give Way to Despondency Portland, March 30. At 2 o'clock this afternoon Max Friendly, a liquor dealer, on Morrison street, n-ar Fifth, committed suicide by shooting himself in the bead. The deed was made in a yard in the rear of his Htore, and the re port of the pistol at once orew a large crowd of people to the spot. The uncon scious man with a leaden messenger of death in his skull, was carri.d into his store, and a few moments later Dr. Gil lespie was at his side. After working with the man about 10 minutes the sur geon believed that there va9 a chance for saving Mr. Friendly'a life, but he soon after died. Daring the midst of the excitement one of the 'unfortunate man's (laughters rushed in, and throwing her elf upon the prostrate form of her father, ehe tie wailed the negligence of gome friends in not having closer looked after her father, who had been in an unsettled frame of mind all day. The cause of this act is said to have been financial trouble; hut Mr. Friend ly did not leave a scratch of a pen in forming his family or other friends of the cause of biB raah act. His daughter, a few moments before the tragedy, asked a friend, Mr. F. A. Insley, to look after her father, ns he was not feeling well. A short time there after Mr. Friendly walked to a closet in the yard, in the rear of his store. Then he drew a pistol and shot himself in the right temple. Mr. Insley claims that he passed out af the store, but that the act was so quickly done that he had no opportunity to prevent it. The weapon was picked up about five feet distant from where Mr. Friendly fell. In the fall the unfortunate man also broke his right leg. The remains were taken to the morgue. DO NOT WANT PEACE. Nlcaraguan Rebels Kefuse President Zelaya's Offer. MANAGua, Nicaragua, via Galves on, Tex., March 30. The peace commission, consisting of Dr.' Prudence Alfaro, vice- - president of Salvador ; General Comlins, of Salvador, and Senor Kunirez, the Nicaraguan minister of foreign affaire, has returned here from La Paz, where a conference with representatives of insur gent Leonists had been held. . The terms offered rv President Z--lava Highest of all in Leavening Power. Li Vv &2s25a li are understood to be the absolute sur render of all arms, the payment of all war expenses and the surrender of the leaders for trial. The insurgents not only refused to accept these terms, but demanded that President Zelaya tarn over to them the government of Nicara gua. ConEequently the war will be con tinued with renewed bitterness on both sides. There is great excitement here. Steps are being taken to reinforce the troops at the front and begin an advance on Leon as soon as much-needed supplies of ammunition reach the government forces. The government is said to be hard preesed for funds as well as ammu nition, which facts are not unknown to the Leonists, who are understood to be receiving secret support from Guatemala and other sources, which may result iu complications likely to cause a general war throughout Central America.' It is suggested this is a good opportu nity for intervention upon the part of the United States with a view to bring ing about a peaceful settlement of the question in dispute, as a conflict involv ing all of the Centra American republics would put a serious check upon business and the development of the natural re sources of Central America.

Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the extra ordinary distinction of having been the only blood purifier allowed on exhibit at the world's fair, Chicago. Manufact urers of other sarsaparillas sought by every means to obtain a ehowing of their goods, but they were all turned away under the application of the rule for bidding the entry of patent medicines and nostrums. The decision of the world's fair authorities in tavor of Ayer's Sarsaparilla was in effect as follows: "Ayer's Sarsaparilla is not a patent medicine. It does not belong to the list of nostrums. It is here on its merits." Blakeley & Houghton desire us to pub lish the following extract from a letter of Chas. M. Gutfeld of Reedley, Fresno county, Calif., aa they handle the rem edy referred to and want their customers to know what a eplended medicine it is: "It is with pleasure I tell you that by one day's use of Chamberlain's Cough remedy I was relieved of a very bad cold. My bead was completely stopped up and I could not sleep at night. I can renom mend this remedy." A cold nearly always etarts in the head and afterwards extends to the throat and lungs. . By using this remedy freelv as soon as the cold has been contracted it will cure the cold at once and prevent it from extend ing to the lungs. It May Do as Much for Yon.
