CUBA WANTS FREEDOM AND WILL ACCEPT NO OTHER SOLUTION The Insurgents Will Pay More Than the Value of the Belies Left by Gen. Weyler NEW YORK, Oct. 3.—The Herald to morrow will print a number of inter views with leading Cubans here on the situation in the island. Estrada Palma, representative of the Cuban provisional government, said*: "The Cubans are now more firmly deter mined than ever to push the fight until the absolute independence of Cuba is acknowledged. I believe the Cubans are willing to pay a reasonable indemnity to Spain provided she withdraws her troops from Cuba before the island is practic ally ruined." Enrique J. Devarona said: "The only practical solution of the Cuban problem is absolute independence." Col. P. Lopez de Quezada, formerly of the United States army and a veteran of the Ten Years' war in Cuba, said: "To avoid further shedding of blood of inno cent people, I would, though painfully, sign and give my consent to a compensa tion to be given Spain to rid Cuba of the Spanish." E. Trujillo, editor of El Porvenlr, said: "Cubans are fighting for absolute Inde pendence and will accept no other solu tion." Brigadier Sanchez Agramonte, sur geon general of the Cuban army, said: "Cubans are firmly determined to fight until their independence is accom plished." Regarding the plan for the purchase of Cuba from the Spanish government, General Emllio Nunez, who has been In consultation with the junta leaders in New* York, said: "I cannot see how the plans for the freedom of Cuba on th; basis of a guarantee by the United States of an indemnity of $200,000 in cash can be displeasing to any of the par ties, except that the amount is greatly in excess of the true value of the relics left by Weyler. "The United States could afford to back up the proposition because it would have the revenue of Cuba to guarantee reimbursement and would gain immedi ate improvement of its trade relations." GERMAN OPINION BERLIN, Oct. 3.—The Berliner Post, in an article on the Spanish crisis, re bukes the German democratic papers, which advocated the separation of Cuba from Spain. The writer of the article foresees that the attitude of the United States "is likely to prove a stumbling block to any Spanish ministry, however liberally Cu ba may be treated." It adds: "Although Germany has no direct interest in all these complica tions, it is wrong and politically unwise for German papers to adopt a haughty tone towards Spain, as she deserves all the sympathy of Germany." WOODFORD'S MISSION MADRID, Oct. 3.—The ministerial changes will not affect the instructions which United States Woodford received from his government originally. Both General Woodford and Senor Sagasta, the premier, maintain absolute reserve on the question of American relations towards Spain. Leading Liberals, however, declare that Spain can never officially accept American mediation in Cuban affairs. Senor Sagasta had a conference with the queen regent today, and it is ex pected that the new Liberal cabinet will be completed tomorrow. General Correa has accepted the port folio of minister of war. THE QUEEN'S INFLUENCE LONDON, Oct. 4.—The Madrid cor respondent of the- Standard says-: "The queen, regent took a strong in itiative during the crisis, and profoundly surprised General Azcarraga by leav ing him no alternative but resignation. She frankly expressed her disapproval of the Conservative administration, es pecially in. Its treatment of the-anarchist prisoners imprisoned at Fort Montjule. She said she had allowed Senor Can ovas to remain in office In the hope that he would modify the rigor of his repres sive policy in Cub 3, and that she had re peatedly called the attention of miners to administrative scandals and abuses. Moreover, her majesty said she waited patiently for two -moths after the death of Senor Canovas, in the hope that the new government would correct these evils. On its failure to do so she took it upon herself to consult General Campos, Senor Sllvela and others as to the best means of pacifying Cuba by an endeavor to satisfy the autonomists, and tihus virtually steal a march on American diplomacy. "All the statesmen whom she consulted appear to have advised a Liberal cabi net as the best means of attaining- the j queen's wishes. Thereupon her majesty j thanked General Azcarraga for his j splendid services as minister of war. and i intimated her Intention to appoint Senior Sagasta as president of the council. "The latter, In offering the portfolios, ! expressed his intention to give the largest possible measure of Cuban home rule, to reverse the conservatory policy In Cuba and the Philippines, to recoil General Weyler if he did not resign, and j to pi e-pare for a dissolution, of the cortes, I and to select able representatives to go to Washington and European capitals, as well as to the colonies of Spain, to prove to America and Europe that Spain j is at least going to do spontaneously and i sincerely what the United States has suggested cuuld be accomplished more quickly, and better by mediation or the interference Wihich the Spanish people would certainly not brook, and to which no Spanish government could assent. "Senior Sagasta met with a hearty re sponse on the part of all Liberal statis jmen, and all the Spanish stocks and securities have ste-adily risen on the strength of this settlement of the crisis." NOT AN ULTIMATUM LONDON, Oct. 4.—The Daily News says editorially this morning: If Gen eral Woodford has not presented an ulti matum at Madrid It seems clear that he has made representations carrying tol erably similar effects and practically re suiting in the downfall of the cabinet. The change of ministry seems to tend toward an accommodation with Amer ica's known desire, SAGASTA'S POLICY NEW YORK, Oct. 3.—A dispatch to the World from Madrid says: "The W r orld correspondent called, to day on Premier Sagasta, who said, In response to queries: 'You ask me if tht Liberal party would assent to media tion by the United States with a view to hastening the pacification of Cuba, and inducing the rebels-in arms and th exiles to accept autonomy? " 'Why should we need mediation when our intentions—long and often ex pressed by the Liberal party—aim at realizing all that America could sug gest ? " 'No Spanish party, certainly not the Liberals, could assent to foreign inter ference in our domestic affairs or with our colonies No governfsent could hope to induce the nation to accept such in terference. " Tf America, as we firmly belleveand hope, is disposed to be friendly with us, let her enforce the rules of inter national law, and stop the flow of moral and material aid, without which the insurrection would not last six months " 'We shall reverse completely the pol icy of the last two years in Cuba, begin ning, naturally, with the recall of Gen eral Weyler. " T informed the queen yesterday that the Liberal party would accept the re sponsibility of office most willingly If her majesty honored the party with her confidence; that the Liberal party had plans for all the pending questions of the day in Spain and certainly would grant to Cuba autonomy along the lines traced In the program of the Cuban au tonomists themselves. I said so in my manifesto in June, and have repeated the same promise during the govern ment holidays. " 'The Liberal party Is prepared to grant to Cuba all possible self-govern ment, a broad tariff and every conces sion compatible with inflexible defense of Spanish sovereignty in the West lndias. We, by this course, will satisfy the majority of Cubans and we will act thus spontaneously.* " THE SILVER QUESTION BECOMES ONE OF PRACTICAL POLITICS Recognized English Leaders Admit the Necessity of Fixing the Ra tio of Honey Metals LONDON, Oct. 4.—The Times pub lishes a letter this morning signed by- Lord Oldenham, Sir Hicks-Beach, and Henry Rlversdale Grenfell in which the writers express the opinion that the time has passed for academical discus sion of the currency question, which has become one of practical politics. Recalling the resolution adopted in parliament after Mr. Balfour's speech during the debate on March 17, 1896, and the promise of Sir Michael Hicks- Beach of the same date that the gov ernment would do its utmost to secure, by International agreement, a. stable par exchange between gold and silver, while preserving the gold standard, the writers say: "The leaders of the bimetallic move ment in London have recommended the acceptance of the Hicks-Beach compro mise. If the negotiations are success ful there would be no further bimetallic discussion, for, although we believe the soundest and wisest course would be for Great Britain to co-operate with other nations and open her mints to both metals, we should be glad to see the compromise effected. It would have the important and desirable result of re storing par exchange between the gold using and silver using countries." The letter predicts that unless this compromise is carried out agitation will be continued on the basis of reopening the mints to the free coinage of both metals, but it expresses the belief that the great commercial nations are so alive to the dangers that would follow a failure in the negotiations that the compromise will be accepted. Mr. Grenfell, it is noted, joined with Lord Oldenham fn the publication last year of a collection of pamphlets on both sides of the question. Ninety dollars pays well for a guess. Seven.ty-ftve cents secures The Daily Herald for one month—also a bottle of Klondike nuggets worth $00 if you are a good and successful guesser. At least it will cost you noth ing to register your guess.
