TWENTY-FIFTH YEAR. NO. 213.
SPANIARDS GROW EXCITED Over tbe Cases of the Cuban Filibusters CLAMOR FOR EXECUTION Takes Little Account of Treaty Inter pretatloas A Raster That Weyltr Will Resign H Spain Refutes te Affirm the Sentence of Death Associated Press Special Wire. MADRID, May 10.—There are eviden ces of growing popular excitement in Spain over (he attitude of the United States government toward the question of the filibusters captured on board the Competitor. The riots and outbreaks of popular hatred toward the United States at the Mmc of the passage through con gress of the resolution favoring the rec ognition of the Cubans as belligerents have not been forgotten and the senti ments which caused them are but smouldering. The Spalnsh government has on all possible occasions expressed Its appreciation of and satisfaction with the efforts made by the United States government, to prevent, as far as lay in Its power, the giving of unlawful aid to the Cuban insurgents by citizens of the United Etates. But the widespread sympathy felt for the lnaurgents in the United States Is well reoognlzed by the Spanish people and the news of expedi tions from the United States landed from time to time in Cuba creates Intense Ir ritation. The news of the capture of the men on the Competitor was received with great satisfaction and rejoicing. It was felt to be the first opportunity that had been offered to make an example of those en gaged in aiding the Insurrection. The popular clamor for execution Is general and la likely to become vociferous. Lit tle acoount la taken of the refined ques tions of treaty interpretation Involved tn the protest of the United States gov ernment against the execution of the aentenoes. The action of the United States Is regarded rather as an expres sion of sympathy with the insurrection and there will bu a strong popular clamor to disregard It. The public feeling on the subject is fostered by the tenor of the advices re oelved from Havana. Dispatches from there affirm that Captain (ieneral Wey ler Is greatly Irritated at the attitude of the United States on the question of the sentence. It Is asserted that if the Spanish government adopts a contrary view owing to the representations made oy the United States government Wey ler will resign his position. Allegations are made In these Havana dispatches of very extrraordinary con duct on the part of Mr. Ramon Williams, the United States consul-general. Even If these are not true they are certain to add fuel to the fire of popular Indigna tion in Spain. Mr. Williams' attitude, It Is asserted. Is the subject of general censure tn Havana and Is said to be very provoking. The story goes on to relate that the United States consul general shows himself everywhere in public places In Havana, using Irritat ing and menacing language regarding the probable action of the United States toward the authorities in case the sen tences of the Competitor captives are executed. The Imparclal. commenting upon the attitude of the United States, says that a man accused of acts of piracy admit ted before a courtmarttal in Havana that the American police made a point of vanishing when filibustering expedi tions for Cuba were about to leave Key West. El Liberal declares that the Spanish gevernment ought to have sent a squad ron to Cuba In addition to pressing ail ' the transatlantic steamboats at Its dls- posal for that service. This newspaper asserts that the steamer Bermuda, be longing to the Cuban Insurgent com mittee.embarked upon the Florida coast 10.000 rifles, six pieces of artillery, three Mltrallleuses.a quantity of munitions of war and 300 men, the majority of whom are gunners of the United States militia, for the supply of Insurgent forces In Cu ba. This embarkation took place. El Liberal says, In spite of the protests of the Spanish consul at Jacksonville against allowing It, and the Bermuda left without difficulty or obstruction and according to telegrams received from Captain-General Weyler, the expedition has also landed. This report has created a sensation In Madrid and astonishment Is expressed by El Liberal at tbe conduct of the United States In the matter. At a meeting of conservative senators and deputies Saturday evening the pre mier, Senor Canovas del Castillo, de clared It would be Impossible to Intro duce reforms for Cuba before the situa tion there had become normal again. He admitted that the Spanish arms alone would fall to terminate the war, but he said he believed that the dis couragement of the Insurgents and the prevalence of racial hatred among them would contribute largely to the cessa tion of hostilities: WEYLER HAS HOPES BARCELONA, May 10.—A letter has been received here written by Captain- General Weyler In Cuba to a deputy living In this city. Although Gen. Wey ler takes a liberal view of the situation in Cuba, he opines that the rebellion can only be quelled by vigorous meas ures. He expresses the wish to com plete the fortified line from Jacaro, on the southern coast of the Island, to Mo ron, near the northern coast.ln the west ern portion of the province of Puerto , Principe. A railroad runs between these two points. Captain-General Wey ler founds great hopes on the comple tion of this line. He says that when the rebellion has been crushed he intends to apply reforms gradually, as the In surgents yield and as opportunity Is afforded to Spain to prove her chival rous sentiments. But he will make no crneessions while the rebellion holds Its ground. All the comments of the press mani fest the deep Impression made upon the public mind by the action of the United States toward the sentence of the Com petitor captives. A later dispatch from Havana con firms the report that Gen. Wevler has threatened to resign unless the sen tences are executed. Senor Canovas del Castillo, the pre mier, being asked for an expression of his opinion regarding the matter said- The affair must be settled in accord iet" lEW ttnd exlstln * treat-' The Heraldo compares the offensive conduct of the United States consui general at Havana with that of the British consul who made friendly rep resentatlonu favoring pardons for the .prisoners. Public opinion, says the Heraldo, vehemently opposes American Interference. This paper maintains that the rebels In Cuba are constantly re ceiving assistance from Aemrlca. with out which the rebellion would have been suppressed long ago. Great Indignation Is expressed over the landing of the Bermuda expedition, which has been announced' in a highly sensational manner by the newspapers here. The Epoca, which Is the ministerial organ, discusses the question In a far more conservative and less energetic manner than the other newspapers. It declares America's demand applies ex clusively to the form of trial and not to penalty. It believes the Spanish gov ernment will decide that the matter shall be submitted to the supreme mili tary and naval court. The Epocha alao says the attitude of President Cleveland and Mr. Olney appears to be Incredible, and declares the theory ascribed to Mr. Olney by the New York World deserves no serious reply, because the offense can never be regarded as a question of contraband, according to the principles of International law. The Correo says that the demands of the United States are unjust and men acing, because It Is Incontestlble that filibustering expeditions are organized In the United States with difficulty and consequently such arbitrary conduction would be against the national sentiment of Spain. According to the Dlaro the govern ment cabled to Havana yesterday or dering Weyler to send the case to the supreme military and naval court. Several papers publish the report that besides Oen. Weyler, Oens. Ochanda and Ahumada, who have Important comands In Cuba, have also threatened to resign If the Judgment of the court martial is quashed. APPROVAL ASKED HAVANA, May 10.—The Spanish gov ernment has been asked to approve the sentences of death passed by a court martial upon the men captured on the Competitor on a charge of piracy and revolution. The men sentenced are Alfredo Laborda, said to be the leader of the party and claiming American cit izenship; Ellas Beda, also claiming American citizenship; William GUdea, said to be a British subject; John Mil ton, a native of Kansas, and Theodore Mata. ' This places the fate of the men In the hands of the authorities at Madrid and Insures that they will not be executed without an order from the Spanish gov ernment. James Creelman. correspondent of the New York World, and Frederick W. Lawrence, correspondent of the New York Journal, who were ordered by the authorities to leave the Island for hav ing sent dispatches to their papers of fensive to the government, sailed for New York today on board the Ward line steamship Seguranela. Among the insurgents killed at the en gagement at Cludad. near Gutra Melena. • Havana province, three days ago, was the black leader. Aurollo Collazo, lieu tenant to Captain Fuentes. who was a terribly sanguinary leader, and the lender Acea Vigoa, lieutenant to Col lazo. Jose Blanco Alfonso, an insurgent In cendiary, entered the chape] of the for tress of Cabanas today and will be shot tomorrow. Gen. Prando returned to Spain today to take the oath as senator. The report that Maximo Gomez is In the province of Matanzas is denied, and It is said lie is now encamped at Placetas, in Santa Clara province. Last evening the Insurgents burned the village of Hoyo Colorado. One hun dred and flfty-elght houses, the city hall and the schools were destroyed. A report has been received of another engagement whioh Gen. Saurez Inclan lias had with the insurgents in Pinar del Hio. He attacked them In their position, which was an excellent one. The Insur gent force was made up of numerous bands and they made a stand for forty five minutes before they were dislodged, the Spanish being under a heavy Are for that time. Upon their retreat the Insur gents burned the rest of the town of Ca carajaeas. The official report of the en gagement says the troops had one killed and twenty-three wounded. There are no further details of the affair. It has become known that the British consul has also Intervened in the name of his government In behalf of the Com petitor captives sentenced to death. He invokes clemency for the prisoners This action of the British government in the case has caused a sensation here and it has been the topic of comment to day by all social classes in the commun ity. It would be difficult to say from any admissions made in official quarters what effect this new development will have In the case. There is a marked ab sence of irritation manifested in the comments on the subject, and the action of the British consul seems to have been taken in very good part. It is pointed out that the intervention of the British consul is couched in very different form than that of the United States consul-general and Is, in fact ex pressed in very friendly terms. Invoking the clemency of the Cuban authorities. The question of the execution of the cap tives of the Competitor is recognized to be one of the most important which has occurred since the insurrection broke out. Now that the question has been re ferred to the government at Madrid, the situation here has quieted down, though there is no cessation of interest and dis cussion nf the question. The attltud» of the public has been one of watting on «he resolution of the Madrid government The waiting is attended by much impa tience and no little anxiety. TREATY RIGHTS LONDON, May 11.-The Madrid cor respondent of the Standard says: Senor Canovas del Castillo has publicly stated that America has not protested against Spain s right to punish filibusters, but only against the summary trial. Ameri can citizens are entitled to be tried in the civil courts under the treaties of 1795 and 187, The Spanish government is willing to consider the demand and has cabled to Captain-General Weyler to delay the executions pending the result of negotiations which are actively pro ceeding between Washington and Mad rid to define the interpretation of the aforesaid treaties. Sanor Canovas made a long speech at a meeting of Conservative senators and deputies on Saturday evening. In which he declared this was a national question which must some day be settled with the assistance of all parties. He declared it was impossible to Introduce reforms in Cubai before the situation there should resume its normal condition. He confessed his belief that war alone k. OU v r i".;° tc r mlnate the Insurrection but he believed the Insurgents would become discouraged and that racial hatred wouia. contribute largely to cause a cessation of hostilities. If, however the premier went on, public opinion hi Spain should pronounce for a more rad ical and quicker Introduction of colonial home rule the Conservative government and party would wllllhgly resign the di rection of affairs to the hands of those consenting to assume such responsibili ties. The Epoca, the government organ in guarded language, recommends pru dence and deprecates demonstrations It clearly Intimates that the govern ment will make another effort to con ciliate President Cleveland by ordering General Weyler to send all the papers , THE HERALD LOS ANGELES. MONDAY MORNING-* MAY 11, 1896. bearing upon the case here for the su preme court to pronounce upon. The ex ecution of the sentences would virtually be shelved. The rest of the Madrid papers are unanimous in the opinion that America has taken an ungenerous and unjustl .flable advantage of Spain's difficulties. NO NEWS RECEIVED WASHINGTON. May .10.—If any offi cial news has been received by the gov ernment In Washington today regard ing the Americans capturad aboard the Competitor by the Spaniards, and con demned by court-martial to be shot, diligent Inquiry falls to disclose Its na ture. Secretary Olney, to whom a note was addressed upon the subject, replied there was nothing to make public. In quiry In congressional circles among those directly Interested in the case of one of the men, Milton, shows no addi tional facts have been received by them. Senator Pascoe of Florida, who has taken special Interest in the case, believes Spain will not be Inclined to ward action, as in the present state of public feeling any summary decision by It may lead to serious consequences. The fact that the Havana officials have referred the execution of sentence to Madrid Is a source of gratification to those Interested In the prisoners' fate and inspires the belief that some len iency may be shown. It is not Improb able that an effort may be made by con gress In the matter the coming week to acquaint the public with the facts In the case, by calling on the president for in formation and requesting him to take such steps as will give the condemned men a civil trial. ANOTHER FILIBUSTER NEW LONDON, Conn., May 10.—The tug Commander, with the barges Re lief and Green Point in tow. which sailed from New York Saturday night, and the tug Volunteer met the steamer Laurada. whose movements In New York harbor have occasioned much mystery, off Monta.uk Point today, and transferred to the steamer about 100 Cubans and several tons of arms, am munition arid dynamite. Capt. O'Brien was aboard the Volunteer, and after the transfer was effected returned with the Volunteer. The Laurada put out to sea. The Commander, with her barges In tow, put in here tonight. LONDON COMMENT LONDON. May 10.—The Dally News will say editorially tomorrow regarding the cases of the Competitor captives in Havana: The serious news from Cuba places the Spanish government between two fires. It Is difficult to see how either side can recede. If the Spanish govern ment sacrifices Gen. Weyler It will prob ably have to be prepared to sacrifice Its own life. Public opinion In Madrid is hardly well Informed enough to profit by the Virglnlus case In 1873. The Span ish ought to distrust their own natural ferocity In cases of this sort. The butch ery of the men of the Virglnlus, which many of them applauded at the time as a fine and spirited act. was received with horror and execration throughout the world. The Standard has an editorial com menting upon the sentences of the men at Havana which says: "The situation Is undoubtedly grave, but the dispute involves a direct issue of fact, or at the utmost, a conflicting In terpretation of the law which may fur nish a means of escape from a position of extreme difficulty. Opinion seems to prevail that the sentence of the British subject (GUdeal will be commuted In recognition of Great Brltatn's friendly attitude. But this would be Impossible, as the exercise of mercy in one case would render a dental in the other more InvlduouS. The poettfnn of the Spanish government must-attract general sym pathy. It has a choice of evils, but It cannot be doubted which it will choose, provided It is possible to avoid hostili ties consistently with Spanish concep tion of national dignity, and if the Washington government Is in earnest, which is always uncertain on the eve of a presidential election. A REPORT DENIED TALLAHASSEE, Fla., May 10.—Gov ernor Mitchell's attention was called to day to the dispatch from Tampa, stating that he had telegraphed to Major Con nelly to hold the Fifth battalion in read iness for Immediate action on account of the bold stand taken by the president regarding the Imposing of the death sentence upon the men captured aboard the Competitor. The governor stated emphatically that he had had no recent communication with Major Connelly on the subject, and expressed surprise that such a report should have gotten abroad. A Fetal Plre ST. LOUIS, May 11.—Fire was dis covered In the rear of the Metropolitan restaurant, which occupies a three story building at 324 Olive street, at 1 oclock this (Monday) morning. Be fore the firemen could get to work the flames spread through the building and soon destroyed it. Jefferson Gardner, a cook, rooming on the third floor, had a narrow escape from death. He was burned about the face. Eight firemen, whose names are unknown, were In jured by the falling of the front wall. They were all taken to the City hospital. One Is fatally Injured. It was reported that Tom Dunton, rooming with Gard ner, was missing,'but* this could not be substantiated. rllrsch Memorial Services NEW TORE, May 10,-Hebrews of all s L la^ s . of bellef and a goodly sprinkling of Christians filled Temple Emanuel at the special memorial services for the late Baron de Hirsch today. The services were opened by the anthem Cast Thy Burden on the Lord by the choir. Rev- Stephen S. Wlse.rabbi of B'nai Jeshurun, delivered the opening prayer and was followed by Col. John B. Webber, late commissioner of immigration, who knew the baron Intimately and who delivered an address. Hon. O. S, Strauss and Hon. Simon W. Rosendale also paid glowing tributes to the memory of the deceased; Rev. Kaufman Kohler of Temple Bethel pronounced the benedic tion and the services were closed. The Lond-n Tark-t LONDON.

CONGRESSIONAL FORECAST Debate on Harbors Will Be Con ([eluded Today SENATOR FRYE TO EXPLAIN The Committee's Attempt to Aid a Private Harbor Filibusters' Sentences Are Likely to Reopen Discussion of the Cubsn Question In Both Houses Associated Press Special Wire. WASHINGTON, May 10.—The proba bilities are that the consideration of the river and harbor appropriation bill will be concluded Monday. According to agreement this bill will be followed by the resolution to seat Mr. Dupont as a Senator from Delaware. With the Du pont resolution disposed of, the bill making appropriations for the District of Columbia will be considered and It will probably consume the remainder of the week. Only the provisions In the river and harbor bill for the construc tion of a breakwater at Santa Monica, Cal., remains to be acted upon. There will be several speeches on this question Monday. Senators Berry, Vest and Per kins will oppose the amendment, and Senator Frye, as chairman of the com mittee on commerce, will explaW the committee's reason for this action. Mr. White will reply briefly to Mr. Frye. After this It is expected that the vote on the amendment will be taken, and what ever the fate of this amendment the bill will be promptly passed. It is not ex pected to remain long In conference, as there is a disposition manifest In both houses to get the bill to the president as early as practicable. This Is due to the fear of a veto and to the determination to remain in session long enough to give congress time to act In case of such an adverse endorsement by the president. The agreement in regard to the Dupont case is that It shall be taken up for de bate Immediately after the disposal of the river and harbor bill, and that a vote shall be taken not later than 5 oclock on the second day after the debate begins. It is doubtful whether the entire time will be required. The result of the vote Is still In doubt. It depends upon one or two Populist senators who have not made their positions known so far as can be ascertained. There are several fea tures In the District bill which are ex pected to muse debate, but if It should be passed before the close of the week the committee on appropriations will have the fortification appropriation bill ready to take up and will press Its con sideration. There will, however , be strong pressure in that event to work on the calender. The Cuban situation as presented by the Imposition of the death sentence upon the members of the Competitor party brings forward decidedly Interest ing conditions wWeri may result In an attempt at action on this question by the senate during the week. In fact, the outlook In that direction Is full of possi bilities. IN THE HOUSE. The indications are that the house will drift along for the remainder of the session, giving conference reports of ap propriation bills the right of way and disposing of such incidental matters as It. can. There is a good deal of pressure from certain quarters for the considera tion of the Pacific railroads funding bill and the Immigration bill, and while there is a probability that the latter may be considered at the session, the leaders in control of the house seem to have set their faces against the funding bill for this session, unless It Is prolonged be yond present anticipations. The Immigration bill can hardly come up this week as the chairman of the committee, Mr. Bartholdt, is at his home in St. Louis, attending the state conven tion. Tomorrow is District of Columbia day and Wednesday Is preempted for the special order giving it up to the pen sion bills. It Is likely that the contested election cases of Rlnaker vs. Downing and Murray vs. Elliott, which were to have been considered this week, will, with such conference reports as are pre sented, occupy the remainder of the week. The executive, legislative and ju dicial, the sundry civil and naval bills are now in conference. It is not im probable that a resolution regarding the protection of the two Americans sen tenced to death by the Spanish authori ties at Havana may be presented and furnish the text for a reopening of a discussion of the entire Cuban situation. When Will Congress Adjourn? Senator Gorman does not believe that congress will adjourn by the Ist ot June, as the Republican leaders expect. He is afraid that some advantage might be gained by the Republicans In an early adjournment, and has declared that congress will remain In session until the presidential conventions, any way. Of course, it is In the power of a. few Democrats to delay adjournment, if they are so minded. The rules of the senate give them power to obstruct legislation, and to delay the passage of necessary appropriation bills as long as they wish. It does not appear at pres ent, however, that Senator Gorman would hnve much support from his Democratic brethren in a policy of de lay, as members of the minority are Just as anxious to get home and look after political fences as v are the Republicans. —Washington Letter in Brooklyn Union.

FELIX JULES MELINE—PRIME MINISTER OF FRANCE Felix Jules MHine, who has taken the helm of the French government as prime minister, is one of the strongmen of Gallic politics. Every Frenchman is a politician, and Mellne is one of the fortunate few who have come to the front. Born In Kemlre mont. he studied la-v. and was an intense politician at his majority. He was elected a member of the Commune, but declined the office. He was made national as semblyman In IR'L'. and four years later was elected to the chamber. For fifteen years he was almost constantly before the public as deputy or as filling some func tion under, the patronage or necessity of some ministry. He was under secretary of the interior with Grevy. but resigned at one month's end. Later he was made a member of the Tariff commission, and in 1880 he battled with the party in power for protection, ma king his influence felt in all directions. So totally was he convinced of the strength of his position that he favored a protection that was practically nrohlbitlve. The Only concessions he would listen to were a few points in favor of Switzerland and the United States. One year thereafter he was returned as a deputy. In ISM we find him minister of agriculture. Hetiring in ISSS with Ferry's cabinet, he went bark to the chamber, and in ISSS he presided over that body. Since then he has been in the chamber at odd times and has never been out of the public eye. A RESPLENDENT CEREMONY Performed at the Old St. Louis Cathedral AN ARCHBISHOP INVESTED Conferring tbe Insignia of Archiepiscopal Olfice Distinguished Prelates snd Church Olgnlta rlea Assist In the Ceremonies—Con gratulations by tba Citizens Associated Press Special Wire. ST, LOUIK BIcC May 10.—Amid the most solemn, impressive and resplendent ceremonies ever beheld within the walls of the old cathedral, Rt. Rev. John J. Kain, archbishop of the diocpse of St. I.ouis, was today invested with the order Of the pallium, the sacred insignia ot his iiarchiepiscopal office. This is the first time in the history of the arch diocese of St. Louis that the in vestiture of the pallium upon the arch bishop has been solemnized. A large number of the most distinguished pre lates and church dlgnatarles from all over the country graced the occasion by their presence and assisted In the cere monies.

The most important subject of dis cussion was the strike of firemen in the Armour packing house. The strike was referred to the grievance committee, which will hold a conference with the manager of the plant some time tomor row.

Tha Present Ruler Drinks to the Prosperity of Frankfort FRANKFORT ON THE MAIN, May 10.—The twenty-fifth anniversary of the signing of the treaty of Frankfort,which concluded the Franco-Prussian war, was celebrated here today in continua tion of the fetes and celebrations which have been held throughout Germany in commemoration of the twenty-fifth an niversary of the events of the war.
