CUTTING, St n.TF.c T of Dispute with Mexico. Secretary Bayard demands the un conditional release by Mexico, of Augu st K. Cutting, an American imprisoned in that country under sentence for con tempt o: court; and Mexico refuses to liberate him. This is the sitnu'ion. Cut ing Ims been a resident of Paso del Norte, Mex., where lie Inis p .blished a paper. In tins paper lie printed a libel on a man named Medina, was arreste l for the offense, and retracted. Subse quently. however, he aga n assailed the same person in both Engl sh and S nn Ish, but printed the libel in United States territory. The Mexiea > authori ties claim that he circulated this libel in Mexico; hence his prosecution and punishment. The man who lias managed to koep busy the diplomacy of two nations for several weeks, was born at Hudson, N. Y., in 183!). He learned printing and travelled much as a journeyman. When the Union Army threatened Nashville, Cutting was in that city, where lie joined a comp my enlisted in its defense. At the fall of Nash illo he wont North. In Toledo ho married his fiist wife, from whom he is divorced. Ho was a resident of Kansas City when he mar rie I the pre ont Mr-. Cutting. His pursuits in that thriving town included the public iUoii of a daily newspaper. He accumulated property there, which lie lost by lire, doing to Trinidad, Cal., lie started a newspaper. Three years ago lie was living at Las Vegas, New Mexico. He is under sentence ot aymrs iniprisonmo .t and six liundred dollars' line. His case has been appealed, mid Cutt tig l as sent a message to Texas asking for help. It is sai that lie i low-sp rited, and places no depondence on Mr. Bayard's diplomacy. The o ier.il expectation is that tho dispute xviill Mexico, of which Cutting is the s .eject, will be adjusted witho it recourse to arms, notwithstanding the irritation on the frontier. Public opinion in ilii- country is divided us io whether or not the Mexican authorities are cor rect in their e n tent ion, that they li .\e under the principles ol i ternutioiml law. tlie right to refuse the liber t on of «'utt ng. Perhaps a more certain ac quaintance with the facts will enable the judicial mii.d to determine which power is right in tho controversy. A Gentle Stimulus Is imparted to the kidneys and bladder by 1 Iostetter's Stomach Bitters, which is most useful in overcoming torpidity of these or gans. Besides infusing more* activity into them, this excellent tonic endows them with additional vigor, and enables them the better to undergo the wear and tear of the discharging function imposed upon them by nature. Moreover, as they are the cha'nnel for the escape of certafn im purities from the blood, increases their use fulness by strengthening and healthfully stimulating them. In certain morbid con ditions of these important organs, they fall into a slugish state, which is the usual per cursor of disease. What then can be of greater service than a medicine which im pels them to greater activity when sloth ful? No matadies are more* perilous than those which affect the kidneys, and a medi cine which averts tlie peril should be high ly esteemed. MIMING AT THE TRIBUNE OFFICE. THE CRUEL MACHETE. A STORY OF THE LAST REVOLUTION IN CUBA. Terrible Fate YYlilcH Overtook a Hand of Noble Spun lull CliIvalry—MIssivo From » Uravo Chicagoan—Slmilo-.vs of a Starless Nlglit. '•But the machete means something to .lie Cuban," said tho old don. "It ini t merely n rusty old relic. It lias drunk much blood. Whenever it is drawn, eit her against the soldiery or in riot, somebody dies. Do yon want a little tale jf the machete—one that is true and shows what awful havoc may lie douo with it? "Well, at the outbreak of our last re bellion here tlie Spanish forces in the island made no headway against the brave work of tlie insurgents under the noble Cespides, who, in October, 18i>8, with but fifty other stout hearts about him, raised the standard of independence an his plantation at Demajagua, and by December had an organized army of 12,000 men—the nucleus of the effort for liberty which flamed through Cuba for eight bloody years, costing Spain untold millions in money and tlie lives of 1.TO,000 men, half of whom saw the swift gleam of the flashing machete before their last prayers to the Virgin. "They were impatient in Spain because this little affair was not promptly sup pressed. Finally, at court and in social life, the whole matter became such an ir ritating joke that the eliivalous youth of the best families in Spain banded together to take a little jaunt to Cuba and put down these cane chewing rebels some tine afternoon between breakfast and dinner, or between dinner and the Havana even ing ball. BRAVE AND GAY AND NOBLE. "They were an even 5,000. Brave and gay and noble were they. They held the best blood, the highest hope of Spain. And what a grand departure from Barce lona and arrival at Havana they made! They were splendid fellows, and it is said they represented $500,000,000. Havana society was wild with delight. Every man was a rich family's or a titled family'3 sou. Nearly every man had his own valet. Their uniforms and accoutrements—fur nished at their own cost—were dazzling in gold and lace. A month of tlie wildest social debauchery followed their arrival. Fetes, balls, receptions, bullfights, carni vals, welcomed them on every hand. At last they came out here—over beyond the calzada there, near the Guinea railway— and went into camp. Instantly this cal zada, all the way back to Havana, was transformed into another Paseo de Tacon, thronged with the equipages of the aris tocracy roiling to and from the brilliant camp. The magnificence of the city's so cial gayeties was simply transferred there. "One night a great fete had been given at the encampment, more brilliant and gorgeous than anything that had preceded it. Just before midnight, when the fes tivities were at their height, the com mander of the resplendent troop, on re pairing to his headquarters tent, found the following note pinned upon a diminu tive insurgent flag surmounting a gor geous pyramid of flowers, the gift that day of some beautiful Habanas: " 'After your other guests are gone we will visit you. Do us the honor to receive us standing! Washington Ryan.' "This was the hero from Chicago who gave liis life for Cuba, whose real great ness your people up there never recognize, anil for whose memory they have only made one daub of a portrait. "The missive created the greatest mirth and hilarity. Tlie camp und its guests were wild with mirth and delight over the grim wit of tlie crazy writer and his pre tentious message. They drank toasts to him; sung mock praises of his valor; the bands blared ferociously in his honor until the small hours had come and all the city guests had gone. SHADOWS OF A STARLESS NIGHT. "Then a husli came upon the splendid camp, and wine and sleep wrought silence under the shadows of a starless night. "It might have been the restless wind soughing through the dark canyons, but the commander could not sleep. He read anil re-read the daring message until the little insurgent flag grew ,anil glamoured into an awful menace. Surely there must lie a great storm coming on. Surely it must be sweeping out of the night upon the camp from everywhere. Surely-- "But the storm was there! and it was winged death. "Tlie trumpeters had uo more than time to shrilly summon the heavily sleeping camp to its feet when God only knows how many horsemen were upon them—black, brown, yellow, white—but all men—men with awful purpose. "Their hosts had received these devils of the night 'standing. ' No cry went up from that camp, save as each of these flower of the chivalry of Spain saw swift death in one lightning stroke de scending. Every time a machete gleamed in the glare of the flickering camp tiro it severed a Spanish head from its body and struck through to the heart of some noble woman in old Castile. "A half hour and all was over. The storm was gone. These awful spirits of the night swept away into the night again, leaving but one moving thing—a mon strous insurgent flag 1 »earing these words: "'They were royal hosts. They re ceived us standing.' "The morning came, bringing the most perfect peace that ever fell on soldier's camp. The Cuban machete hail wrought it. Our Havanese brought two car loads of gold laced caps into the city that day. These were sent back to Spain in place of the 5,000 who had left it. So, my friend, you may now well remember the machete of Cuba!"—Edgar L. Wakeman's Cuba Letter in Chicago News. Social Gradations In Kuglanit. William H. Rideing, writing wittily of gr adations in England, avers: "The occu pants of the softest cushions are treated with the softest manners—the occupants of the hardest with an appropriate asperity.''—Exchange.
