Nov. 23.—The World this morning publishes the following corres pondence from Santiago de Cuba, under date of November 12: There is a reign of terror in Guantana mo. Paciflcos are taken from their homes, conducted to the outskirts of town and there butchered. More than sixty inoffensive citizens have been mur dered In that way. Generals Linares and Cara del Rey, with 200 men, were defeated November 10 by Mendoza and Frclrc at Earracoa, near De-s Camlno, The Spanish fled, leaving many killed and wounded, among the latter a col onel. The wounded, including the colonel, were cared for by some women living near. When the Spaniards afterwards returned from Dos Camlnos to get their wounded, they arrested and shamefully treated the women. On the 9th Spanish Commander Ar danaz, with a large force, was defeated by Rebel Leader Torres near the wharf of Banes (Holguin), where there is a fort. The rebels laid a wire cable across the harbor entrance, so when the gunboat Vicente Tanez went to protect the Spanish column she could not get in. She retired In a shower of bullets after losing two men killed. The Spanish column again fought the insurgents on Its return In Loma de los Angeles and suffered considerable loss. Commander Garridos' guerrillas and regulars were defeated on the 10th by Brigadier Bonne, Garridos was severely wounded. Almost the entire force of the guerrillas has joined the rebels. General Weyler's order to send fire men to the field has produced a result just contrary to his expectation. Of the 300 colored firemen who left Havana for Pinar del Rio, November 7, ninety have joined the rebels at the iirst chance. A selection of 150 firemen of Santiago were ordered to be ready to take the field yes terday. Forty disappeared the night before last, taking their arms and ammuni tion. They had joined the rebel force of Colonel Vega. In Manzanillo twenty five firemen, with a lieutenant, did like wise as soon as they got the order to be ready for service. PRESS ASSOCIATION MEETING.

MR HANNA HAS AMBITIONS And Aims Higher Than a Cab inet Position SENATOR SHERMAN'S SEAT Would Satisfy the Desires of Ihe Cam paign Manager If Sherman Declines to Come Down, Hanna Will Take the Treasury Portfolio—Grant Gets Nothing. Associated Press Special Wire CLEVELAND, 0., Nov. 23!— A close friend or Chairman Hanna today ex plained under what circumstances Mr. Hanna would accept a place In the cab inet. "He will," he said, "either go into the cabinet, or he will be the next Republi can United States senator from Ohio. Both the chairman and Mr. McKinley understand that, and they are waiting to learn what position Mr. Sherman will take. Mr. McKinley wants Mr. Hanna to accept the treasury portfolio, but Mr. Hanna has other aspirations. He believes it would be a greater honot to be senator from Ohio. But Mr. Sher man stands in the way of that. Mr. Mc- Kinley will offer Mr. Sherman the posi tion of secretary of state, and if he de clines to go into the cabinet, then Mr. Hanna will accept the position of secre tary of the treasury. Should Mr. Sher man decide, however, to become one of Mr. McKlnley's advisers, thus vacating his seat In the senate. Mr. Hanna will become his successor. Mr. McKinley will not decide on his course until he learns exactly what position Senator Sherman will take." This same friend of Mr. Hanna said that it had practically been decided that Congressman Boutelle of Maine would be the secretary of the navy. Despite the fact that both General Miles and Col. Fred Grant held a conference with Mr. McKinley, neither of them, says this gentleman, will get the port folio of war.

GOODWIN'S DIVORCE CASE Failed ol Dismissal on the Official Court Records Mrs. Goodwin Now Comes Into Couit and Asks for a Slice of the Actor's Income. SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 23.—When Nat Goodwin's attorneys filed the notice of dismissal of his suit for divorce the other day, they neglected to see that the county clerk entered up a formal order of dismissal on tho records, and there fore, his wife, taking advantage of the clerk's neglect, has intervened an an swer to the complaint sought to be dis missed and have brought to issue the case which Goodwin expected to have discontinued. Mrs. Goodwin's answer sets up an af firmative defense to the actor's com plaint, charging infidelity to marriage vows on the actor's part, and "shows by way of recrimination a cause of di vorce against the plaintiff in bar of his pretended cause of divorce." The wife' does not want a divorce herself. That would give the comedian his freedom, but she' does want a share of his income, which she declares to be in excess of $1000 per month. The first issue raised by the answer Is that of Goodwin's residence in this state. Mrs. Goodwin denies each of the allega tions contained in the complaint and declares that her husband has inflicted grievous bodily Injury and mental suf fering upon her. Mrs. Goodwin claims that her husband i is the owner of several plays, from which he receives an annual income of over $r,0.000, and that lie has over $60,000 in vested In real estate and securities, and : demands affirmative relief in the form !of permanent separate maintenance.

The Whole Thin.;; Is a Fake—No Patent Applied For. Associated Press Special Wire SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 2.l.—The In ventor of the mysterious air ship which has been puzzling local scientists and others for the past.week. Is believed to be one "Dr. E. H. Benjamin." an alleged dentist, who has occupied rooms In an Ellis street lodging house for the past two years, but so far he has successfully evaded all attempts to discover his is en tity. His attorney, Collins, when seen yesterday, and pressed to tell further about the alleged invention and his ma chinery, said this morning: "The In ventor came to my office, in the Crocker building, and told me he had tested the merits of the ship in last night's storm with the greatest success. The wind currents were very contrary, and the test was one that tried the merits of the machine in Ihe hardest possible manner, but it came e»ut of the e>rdeal in good or eler, having breasted the storm as well as any bird. He started from the locality where the vessel is housed and Mew over Alcatraz and out through the Golden Gate, skirting the Cliff house and return ing by the same route across the hay. He hovered over the seal rocks for fully ten minutes and played his searchlight on the seals. His intention is to make another trip this evening, probably over the same ground, running on his return trip as far as Sacramento." A dispatch was received from Sacra mento last night to the effect that hun dreds of people there had again seen the mysterious meteor in the heavens, but as yet no one had been able to see the ob ject sufficiently well to state definitely what is is. The story of the air ship is not gen erally credited, The inventor cannot be found, and those who are reputed to have seen it are not willing to give defi nite testimony. George D. Collins, at ten'ney. whose name has been connected with the Inventor as applicant for a patent, admits he was retained for such cservice, but ridicules the story of the Sacramento Hying machine. He says the story Is a fake, but declares that his edient is working em a machine which is a combination of aero-plane and tail less kite. Attorney Collins, however, says he has not seen the Hying machine, and he discredits his alleged perform ance. The name of the inventor is still withheld, and lie cannot be found. NO PATENT ASKED.
