NEW YORK March 5A special to
the Herald from Havana says
Nobody has paid much attention to
reports from the field as to operations
lately Washington and Madrid have
been the sole centers of interest Yet
within a few days Gomez and Maceo
have achieved another of their suc
cesses in the face of strong opposing
columns which have made the world
wonder how rt can be done
General Weyler evidently believing
he had driven them to their strong
hold in the everglades of Cienaga de
Seapala has been hurrying thousands
of troops into Santa Clara by land and
sea with one purpose of hemming his
enemy in at that point General Pan
do in command in Santa Clara only
awaited the arrival of those troops to
strike hard blows But Gomez and
Maceo having left in the everglades
hospitals all their wounded and ill
taken east from their raids in the
western provinces strengthened their
forces with new troops fresh from
Puerto Principe and San Diego and
then while the Spanish battalions were
en route to catch them they unexpec
tedly turned west again slipping past
i obstructions with only a few skir
Now Gomez is in the heart of Ma
tanzas and Maceo is once more almost
in the gates of the capital Trains have
been fired on just beyond the city on
the Mantanza road and Monday night
there was a sharp skirmish only three
miles beyond the suburb of Jesus del
Monte a little settlement to which Ha
vana horsecars and omnibuses make
regular trips There was no official
report of the affair given out
But Through the l l1 It May Be I
Seen lie Insurgents Make Gains
HAVANA March CaptainGen
eral Weyler visited the hospitals today
and expressed himself satisfied with
the manner in which the wounded and
sick were being cared for and with
the condition of ihe buildings
Up to date the insurgents have
burned thirteen villages and towns in
the province of Pinar del Rio Among
them are several important places in
cluding San Juan de Martinez In
addition they have burned many to
bacco houses and the extensive sugar
estate at Guacamaya
Carillo and Rojas the insurgent
leaders at the head of about 700 of
their followers recently attacked a I
company of Sicilia battalion and the
local guerilla force of San Andreas
near Holguin province of Santiago de
Cuba The soldiers made a brilliant
defense and repulsed the insurgents
with a loss of twentyfive killed The
enemy retired with many wounded
CaptainGeneral Weyler has Ftsued a
circular prohibiting the sale of petro
leum and other inflammable articles of
a like description in the villages of Cuba
and regulating their importation
Major Farrer in charge Of a detach
ment of troops guarding a provision
train bound from Santi Espiritus to
Pico Puerto province of Santa Clara
has repulsed an insurgent attack
Four insurgents were killed and the
troops lost six men
The Spanish gunboat Lines convey I
ing provisions to Jibacoa found the
entrance of the river closed by a chain
stretched from bank to bank The in
surgents fired upon the gunboat and I
the latter returned the fire The troops
were sent in pursuit of the insurgents
A detachment of insurgents belong
ing to Maceos forces have captured
the fort at Santa Cruz a small place I
north of Jibacoa by unfair means it I
is claimed The insurgents called upon
the little garrison to surrender and the I
Spanish in charge left the fort for the
purpose of conferring with the insur
gent leaders
In the meantime the insurgents sur
rounded the fort entered it and made
prisoners of volunteers defending i
also capturing all their arms and the
supply of ammunition The volunteers
were subsequently released and the
military governor of Jibacoa sent a
detachment of troops in pursuit
Generals Prats and Arolas are closely
ly pursuing Gomez who is now on the
limits of the border of the province
of Santa Clara according to the official
ficial advices
The situation in the v province of
Pinar del Rio has greatly improved
I was recently entirely I lacking in tele
graphic communication and in garri
sojfs and was at the mercy of the in
suiigents But order has been restored
and matters are now in their usual
state although communication is main
tained by the heliographic system
The insurgent leader Calunga who
was reported to have been killed is still
General Melguize had an engage
ment at the plantation of Moraloc
near Casigues this province with the
bands of insurgents belonging to Ma
ceos command The troops dislodged
fjj e insurgents from the positions
waich they occupied and the Castillos
squadron and the Tareteces volunteers
in pursuing them killed eighteen of I
the enemy wounding many more
The troops had several wounded
Colonel Martin later had another en
gagement with the insurgents at the
Yero farm after crossing the river
Tuncio not far from Santa Cruz in
the province of Puerto Principe and I
the colonel afterwards dispersed the in
surgents at Saboracoa and Pico Pica
where the insurgent had again united
their forces Colonel Martins cavalry I
charged the insurgent forces and dis
i 41 tii li
lodged the enemy from the position oc
cupied with loss
The reopening of telegraphic commu
nication with the region of Pinar del
Rio brings the first detailed informa
tion of affair in that province for
several weeks
The condition of affairs disclosed is
little less than appalling The rich
Vuelta Abajo district seems to have
been put to the torch and is apparently
reduced to a wilderness while towns
have been obliterated and their in
habitants are wandering helpless over
the country many of them starving
The villages and towns of Cabanas
Bethia Honda San Diego de Nunez
Santa Cruz de Los Pinos Los Palacios
Paso Real de San Diego and San Diego
de Los Ratios are known to be re
duced to ashes and reports of others
will bring the number destroyed up to
thirteen All these were Important and
thriving centers of population and
business The lasfrtown which has suc
cumbed to the insurgents torch is
San Juan Y Martinez The tobacco
from this town is famous the world
When the first column of Spanish
troops arrived onHhe site of the town
they found only debris and smoking
ashes A hundred desolated families
had taken refugein poor huts outside
of what was qnce the town and were
waiting helplessly for any assistance
They were without clothing and with
out food
In consequence ofhe distribution of
a circular containing General Weylers
proclamation requiring the concentra
tion of all country people within the
limits of the towns for protection there
have been many delegations of farm
ers coming to Santiago de Cuba to
inquire of the military authorities hot
far the requirement applies to them
and for an interpretation of the pro
Consuls of foreign governments are
seeking the same information
A column of troops coming into
Ramon de los Taguas Santiago de
Cuba > was fired upon by the insurgents
near the mountains of Palmarcas The
latter were routed leaving several
dead The leader Vega Verala Was
wounded and made prisoner
The Spanish bark Grain Canaria of
500 tons na been lost off Cayo Con
fites north of Romano I is believed
all of the crew were saved
Generals Bernal and Vicuna have ar
rived here for a conference with Cap

Sinnllpox Ailds io the Horrors of
Intestine War
NEW YORK March 5A Herald
dispatch from Havana says
Smallpox has been added to the hor
rors existing in Cub I according to a
communication received by Surgeon
General Wyman of the Marine hospital
service from D Caminero at Santiago
In his report Dr Caminero says A
general order has been issued by the
authorities to all the practicing phy
I sicians of the town to report any case
of smallpox presenting itself for the
purpose of sending any such case to a
smallpox hospital provided by the mu
I nicipality outside of thp city limits
hut this measure w n otpreveIt in
my judgment the development of the
terrible disease if itshould further ap
pear among us
No quarantine is enforced upon the
coasting steamers coming from the
port of Mlanzanillo where smallpox is
epidemic and most likely some passen
gers will arrive with the disease in its
period of incubation which later on
will develop into a more or less malig
nant form of smallpox Yellow fever
seems stationary and as the troops are
now in active operation in the field
those taken with it are carried to the
provincial hospitals established in the
surrounding country

NEW YORK March 5A special to
the World from Madrid says =
Marshal Campos was seen by the
World correspondent The general
who had just got out of bed was look
ing remarkably well He began the con
versation himself asking in a frank
soldierly energetic manner that your
correspondent give prominence to these
First he said I deny that there
is any foundation fr the reports of
cruelties in General Weylers past his j
tory He was simply a field officer in
the last Cuban insurrection carrying
out like all others the orders of his I
chief Count Balmaseda who had or
dered reprisals because the insurgents
had committed atrocities People ought
not to be alarmed at the terrifying
proclamations of Weyler threatening
penalties that are practically impossible
of execution and only intended to
o executon ald quell
the spirit of disaffection So far no
body has been shot or executed
Second I have no grudge against
the Canovas government I was per
ifectly justified in recalling me after the
failure of > military and
faiure my mltary political
plans and I admit I was no longer in
touch with the colonial conservatives
Third I believe the war is likely to
last a couple of years but despite the
staying powers of the insurgents i is
impossible for them to succeed alone
even if they do wear out the armies
and resources of Spain by desultory
guerrilla warfare favored by the climatic
matic conditions of the country
Fourth as regards the colonial
Furth a re
forms which before I went to Cuba I
thought to be carried out because it is
political to fulfill promises and which
at first I believed might have
frst beIeved helped to
stop the developments of the insurrec
tion together with my own concilia
tory policy As I was only a general in
command of the forces I could not
take the initiative if I received no in
structions from the home government
Soon njoreover circumstances led me
to see that even the colonial parties and
some autonomists in Cuba < themselves
doubted the expediency of the reforms
I think it is now rather late to attempt
such palliatives and the sword must
first crush the insurrection before home
rule is possible
Fifth Cubans attach much import
ance to administrative economical re
forms which are easier to propose than
to accomplish
Sixth I decline to
declne offer an opinion
on the advisability of meeting them
half way before recognition of belliger
ency which admit would embolden
these insurgents and increase the difficulties
Military Commission of Inquiry
NEW YORK March GA special to the
World from Washington says it is possi
ble that President Cleveland will send a
military commission to Cuba to report
on the condition of affairs there In this
connection it is announced that General
e Gner
Wesley Merritt commander of the de
partment of the Missouri a id several
other high olHcials of the army have
been sU enly summoned to Washington
The World says it could pot be positively
learned last night that their mission ha
any reference to Cuba but It is known the
president has implicit confidence in Gen

mittee Agrees to the House Cu
ban Resolution
ferees of the two houses on tie Cuban
resolution consisting of Senators Sher
man Morgan and Lodge on the part
of the senate and of Messrs Hitt
Adams and McCreary of the house
I reached a conclusion more speedily
and with less difficulty in iheir con
ference today than had been antici
pated The consultation was of about
forty minutes duration and it became
apparent immediately that the repre
sentatives of the senate would be sat
isfied with the house substitute Sena
tor Morgan was strongly in favor of
that clause of the house resolution
which contemplates intervention a
declaration which he had suggested
should be made when the question was
before the senate There was mention
made of the possibilities of var with
Spain i as a result of the acton by
congress and the exclusive statement
concerning the position of the ad
ministration in opposition to the recog
nition made by the Associated Press
was also the subject of some talk
So far as the house is concerned the
resolution is a closed question for the
present There will be no more de
bale because it is only necessary for
the secretary of the senate to report
tp the house that the senate con
ferees have agreed to the house resolu
tions s
The question of Cuban independence
came up unexpectedly in a somewhat
sensational resolution by Allen Pop
of Nebraska directing the president to
issue a proclamation recognizing the
independence of Cuba Objection from
Hale Maine to the request of Allen
for unanimous consent to make a
speech on the resolution directed mat
ters to the exchange of personalities
I inconsistent with senatorial courtesy
The Nebraska senator warmly an
nounced that if Hale objected the lat
ter could take warning that he would
I not receive unanimous consent on any
measure a long as he Allen was in
the senate
This brought from Chandler Rep
of New Hampshire a declaration that
he would give consent to no senator
who prefaced his request with a
threat against senators in general
Allen retorted that his remarks vere
applicable to Hale not to senators in
general and that he had no apologies
to offer as to Hale
Hale said he would have no ven
detta iwith Allen and thought each
could be in better business than watch
ing to pay each other off
Allen closed the incident by stating
that he would postpone his speech if
Hale gave his consent to such a
I The senate passed a hill to pay
I Charles P Ohouteau the survivor of
I Chouteau Harrison Valle 174000 for
a battery furnished during the war
and a resolution directing the judiciary
committee to investigate the subject of
contempt of court and report what
amendatory lawswere necessary The
resolution was drawn by Hill as a sub
stitute for the resolutions for inquiry
into the imprisonment of E V Debs
The conferees on the Cuban resolu
tion after a conference of forty min
utes today agreed upon the house sub
stitute At a oclock Sherman present
ed the conference report to the sen
The objection of Hale prevented the
consideration of the conference report
at the present time Upon the reauest
of Sherman i was made a special or
der of business on Monday
In the discussion Chandler declared
the resolutions were not strong enough
He was in favor of recognition and the
m of Cuban independence
by the United States Call moved to
motion to until
recognize a moton adjourn unt
Monday so the report might be con
sidered tomorrow
Hawley advised caution We might
be Involved in war not only with one
I nation but with several Without an
adequate navy and boast defenses
there should be great care exercised in
giving offense to other nations He
giving natons
hoped the men so vigorously support
ing warlike resolutions would vote for
liberal appropriations increasing
the navy army and coast defenses
Call withdrew his motion to recon
sider the motion to adjourn until Mon
day and the Cuban resolutions there
fore will be considered on Monday
The action of the senate conferees
receding from their resolution and
accepting those of the house ends the
mater as far as the house is concern
ed except for the simple announce
ment When the senate adopts the re
port of its conferees and that action l5
transmitted to the house Hitt will ex
plain what has been done
At 130 the senate took up the Du
pont contested ejection case and Mr
Mitchell Rep Ore resumed his ar
gument in behalf of Mr Dupont Up
on its conclusion Mr Turpie Dem
Ind took the floor to the
foor open argu
ment against Mr Dupont but yielded
until Monday
Mr Sherman presented the confer
ence report on the Cuban resolutions
but action was postponed

I for a conference on the Cuban resolutions
was agreed to but the speaker did not
announce the conference
A lull was passed on motion of Gros

I by the secretary of war
The house toda
1he today wrangle about four
hours over the salaries of United States
marshals and the other features of the
i amendment to the legislative appropria
tion bill to abolish the fee system In the
I oases of United States attorneys and mar
I shals Interest In the debate however
I was completely overshadowed by I sen
national attack made upon President
Cleveland by Air Hartman Rep Mont
who felt himself personally aggrieved by
Mr Clevelands utterances at the Pres
byterian home mission meeting in New
York on Tuesday and who seized the op
j I portunity allowed by the latitude of de
I bate on appropriation bills to repel the
et t the western states were the
I home of evil i ii stal Hartman
j sent to the clerks desk and had read the
following extracts from Mr Clevelands
address The toleration of evils and In
difference to Christianizing and elevating
agencies In the new states of the west
which i left unchecked develops into
badly regulated municipalities corrupt
and unsafe territories and undesirable
Whatever may be my individual opin
ion of the president said Mr Hartman
matters not I would not be proper for
me to stij6 it hers For the high office of
the president ol the United States I have
I a supreme regard The legitimate func
tions of that olilcfr are limited to those
enumerated In our constitution Under
the constitution and laws I deny the right
of the chief executive to willfully and
wantonly In public address or otherwise
i Insult any of the citizens of any state of
I the republic over whom he has been called
j to preside I deny the constitutional au
thority or the president to give utterance
In public address to sentiments favorable
or adverse to proposed legislation penS
j Ing in our house of congress When the
i president made the foregoing remarks he
I knew there was pending in congress bills
for the admission of certain territories
Into the union of sta t0 He had been
1 advised that a majority of the citizens of
I those territories were antagonistic to his
i financial and economic VIES and under
1 the cloak of supposed religious address
j before a religious organization and with
gross Impropriety ana for the purposes of
preventing the achievement of the rights
of statehood to which they aspire and
are entitled he gave utterance a chief
executive to this unfounded slander
against those citizens and states of the
republic whose interests he Is sworn to
protect and uphold
11 Powers Rep Vt jumped to his
fe6t and called Mr Hartman to order
ir there Is nobody on this floor said
he addressing the Democratic side who
i is related to the president by ties of affin
ity or consanguinity social or political
I State your point of order demanded
I Mr Hartman Interrupting him
I I I The point of order Mr Chairman
continued Mr Powers is that it is not
permissible here to reflect upon a co
I ordinate branch of the government
1 I I am not reflecting upon the president
said II Hartman I am reflecting upon
i the sentiments wmch the president utters
I and 1 have a right to do so
I Mr Hepburn Rep Iowa who wa in
the chair said that he did not feel called
upon to say whether the remarks camo
j within the rule whereupon Mr Miles
I Dem Md came to the support of the
president but he was promptly overruled
I whereupon he appealed from the decision
or the chair adding that Mr Hartman
had taken a liberty which had never been
countenanced In the American congress
before The chair however congess
tined and Mr Hartman proceeded
The percentage of crime in those
states and territories will not exceed
that found in the state of New York
where the president seems to think all
virtue reside The per capita of wealth
of the citizens of our state exceeds that
exceEg tht
of any state In the union save one Our
educational facilities ale equal to those
of any section of the union and If some
I of the patriotism of the people of the
west had been possessed by the nreei l
I dent and his friends the citizens of this
t republic would not have been called upon
t I to witness the national humiliation of
hauling down the American flag at Hon
lulu of begging the bankers of Wall
I street and Great Britain to save us from
financial ruin and under the behests of
the powers behind the throne of deny
ing to the oppressed citizens of Cuba
the recognition which the dictates of hu
manity and common right demand Ap
I Is true we do not get our patriot
ism from Wall street where the presi
dent gets his Laughter
I Is true none of our citizens have
possessed that particular style of pat
0 pt
triotlsm which would enable them to
save by thrift and strict economy five
times as much as their entire income
amounts to and it is also true that the
patriotism of these corrupt and unsafe
territories and undesirable states have
I never ye been able to rise to that lofty
plane of supreme wisdom and virtue
At this Doint Mr Hartmans live min
utes expired and Mr Grosvenor Rep
Ohio undertook to help him out by the
parliamarJtary expedient of securing recognition
cognition and yielding his time back to
I Mr Hartman
I think said Mr Grosvenor that
my friend from Montana overlooks one
very important at When we get on
our feet in a deep religious frame of
mind It i a new field then we are
ploughing in virgin soil as It were
I raise the nolrt of oflf + ha1 fe
gentleman Is out of order broke in Mr
bulsor because tne othtr day ue
Grosvenor said on this floor that he
had no religion Laughter Having no
religion himself I submit that he is in
competent to discuss the question of the
religion of any other man
I never said that I had n religion
replied Mr Grosvenor but I would
rather be without a very large modicum

The mob made its way to the United
States i consulate which was stoned
and the windows smashed by the in

under orders from the government as
it was feared the students meeting
would be a hotbed for breeding dis
orders But this measure proved un
availing and the police have been kept
busy dispersing students gatherings
nearly all day
Several attempts were made by dis
orderly paraders to make their way
to the United States consulate but
they were frustrated as the authori
ties had received special orders to br
on the lookout for any demonstrations
against the property of the United
States Special protection was af
forded the building in which the of
fices of the consul are located with a
view to the same end The mob gath
ered before the building before the
police were aware of what was occur
ring and stones began to fly from the
crowd with the result that windows
were broken The crowd > was cheered
on by some in the streets and from the
neighboring houses The police lost
no time in charging the rioters and
the mob was speedily dispersed
There was no violence indulged in
in other parts of the city the demon
strations being confined to noisy clam
or cries of derision against the United
Slates government and attempts to
make speeches The orators were not
allowed to proceed far before the po
lice drove away their hearers and
warned the speakers Io desist A num

of the defiance of the orders issued for
preserving the peace
