H lw. WEYLER IS MAD. He Resents Newspaper Criticisms ami Tin eat ens Coi-respondents. Havana, Jan. Ill Viu Key West, Jan. 14 Copt. Tien. ft'iylor is in a very bad humor, and seemingly with good reason. He was with dHllculty dissuaded a day or two ago from sending Senor l'cnn, correspondent of tho Madrid lleraldo, to Mora and the newspaper iniin in is not safe fioin tlie Spanish commander, who was aroused by the criticisms of the conduct of the campaign iu Cuba. Tho nun rment against ft'cvlor has its root in the most inllucntial circles here, the very quarters where Spain counts her staunchest supporters, ami therefore it is not hellered possible that the government can much longer ignore the fact that little or nothing can be done toward tho real solution of the Ctibnu question, so long as ft'tyler is Captain General of the island. His military Incapacity is not the only feature complained of. The air is full of war rumors and rotten contracts for noldlers, eufferini! from lack of food, medicine and ammunition, while on tho other hand, issues by sonic mean or other, hae fallen into the hands of tho insurgents or lime eutlrclv failed to materialize. Kven tho army contractors have turned against the Captain deutrid and that, a- military men are aware, means n grt.it ileal. Tho advent of (mini, into the western part a'. Cuba is liable to be the straw which will lurn tlie tide in favor of Weylcr's recall, which is only held back because the Spanish .Ministry doc not like to be placed in tho position of giving way in this natter to the condemnation which the Captain General and his methods hao met with iu the American The rumor that Maximo dome w.v conte.nplatlng nurrondcring to tho Spanish authorities has been im,..v.l t Stnnish ollleial sources as usual, and is pronounced by friends of the Cubans, Mho are always wen informed, -to bo ' Corns is pushing onwnnl from the east with all tho men he can muster, while at the ino time his retreat.

In other districts, having 4 1,000,000 of people, the distress may deepen with famine for a shorter or longer period, while 0,000,000 people in the native states may be victims of famine. Tho density of the famished popu'ation varies from 'J02 per hiiuare inilo iu Mo.affcrporo and Kengal to 122 per square mile in lthalagat and tho ecu trnl provinces. There were 1,200,000 people on tho relief work at the be ginning of January, and this number will certainly reach 2,000,000, and innv exceed ii.000,000. lin ost hunted that the famine will cost tlie Indian treasury nt least 1,-000.000 to CC.000,000.

THEY'LL STAY. Tlie "JtcgisterV Wind Bag Punctured Again. Bay Fifty Railroad Men to Move to Memphis The Story Denied. The article in today's "Register" relat'vo to the alleged approaching departure of about llfty railroad families from Paducah, to locate in Memphis, was without foundation. Stlll more nbsurd than tho story of Alielrj departure Is the reason given tliat; the council has refused to put In seweingc system. Most of the railroad men liavo resided here for several years, long enouch to become acclimated, at least. Paducah Isn't so unhealthy, after all, except to somo alleged newspapers. Tho way the articlo in this morning's paper was written, head nor tail could bo made of it. It didn't designate freight crews or passenger crews, but as tho passenger crews have already been run to Fulton much nguitist their will it is inferred that freight crews were alluded to. A prominent freight conductor was seen this morning nnd stated : "There isn't auy truth in that article. Some time ago some of the freight conductors drew up n peti tion askinc that their "layoff" be chanced from Paducah to Memphis. A few of them signed it, but most of them never did. Nothing; vvns ever done in regard to the matter, however, and so far as the road grunting tho request, It is somewuat like jtho 'Recistcr's" oft repealed Hassniau story, the railroad down tirst street, and tho consolidation of depots.

Will Graham Wanted in Indiana For Murder. WAS ARRESTED LAST NIGHT. Said to Ilnvc Hecn Implicated in tho Kllllnp of a Druggist. HE CLAIMS TO BE INNOCENT. A most valuable capture wa? made last night by Ofllcers Senstr nnd Stncdley, in accordance with Instructions from Marshal Collins, who worked tho case up. Will Graham, alias Gaynor, wanted at Rcclsville, Pntnam county, for murder, and for whose arrest there is n reward of $500, was arrested by the above officials. Will Graham is tho name of n young man apparently about 25 years of age who was lodged behind steel bars Inst night on a charge of murder. He was arrested Ivy officers Senser and Smedley at 7:80 o'clock last night at the Kinney Veneer and Package Company, in where he had been employed as watenman. Yesterday afternoon Marshal Collins received a telegram from JetTersonville, Ind., authorities, asking them to arrest Graham, who was located here. His brother-in- law is Mr. Ed Gaynor, of and the ofllcers had no difficulty in finding him. He appeared to he taken by surprise when arrested, and professed an iguorancc of the charge. "What is this for?" lie asked, they had found and removed a pistol from his rear pocket. "I guess you know," was the evasive reply of the officer, who, a few moments afterwards informed Graham that be was wanted for mur dering and robbing a druggist at Reelsvillc, Ind., a few miles from Jeffersonvillc. Charles Gray, nn accomplice, is now in jail awaiting trial. Graham strenuously denied that he was guilty, and that he knew absolutely nothing of the alleged crime. He was locked up in the steel coll and wns today seen by n Sun reporter, Ho admitted tint he knows Charles Gray, and that ho lives at wood, Ind., twenty-live miles from Jeffersonvillc, nnd that Gray lives at Heuryville, Ind., another neighboring village. Ha has a wife and children nt Un derwood, and stated to a Sr.N reporter that he left home soon after the election, nnd has not been back since. He has been iu Paducah for three weeks nnd the Indiana olliccrs did not locate him until a day or two ago. He sayd lie knows nothing about ulmiii he is charged with killing, nnd that he is innocent. Graham is nevertheless very nerv ous, and as lie sat in ins ecu tuts morning with a desperate, restless expression on his countenance, large drops of perspiration gathered on his face and rolled down, nnd he would occasionally glance furtively about as if seeking somo exit. No one has been able to extort a confession of even n knowledge of Iho crime from Graham, who asked nothing except that the fact tlut he has a wife nnd children at Underwood be suppressed. Today Marshal Collins, in searching through his papers, came across a circular containing a history of the crimo and offering a reward of 5300 for the murderers. On the nignt of December 1st, 189G, Druggist Wm. E. Counts, of Reelsvillc, Ind., was murdered in fiont of Ills storo by footpads and robbed of 890. He was shot by the highwaymen and left after they had robbed him. Indignant citizens offered tho reward, and ouo of the men, Charles Gray, is already in jail. Tho names of tho men were unknown at the time the body was found, but descriptions were known, nnd circulars sent all over the country. Superintendent of Police W. D. Fisher, of Terra Haute, vouches for tho reward, so the enn officers have a cinch on it, or half, at least. Tho murder was a cold blooded one, nnd Mnrshnl Collins is of the opinion that the pistol Graham hod when arrested is the same with which tho cowardly crlmo was committed Grahaui answered tho description of one of the men exactly, nnd has on some of the clothing decribed He is today closely guarded, and tho Indiana olllcers havo been notified and nro expected today or tonight Quit coughing Is easy enough if you know how to ilo J Tho best wayto quit is to xtako y6ne doso of Dr. Bell's Pino Tur Hbuey.
