BOSTON, Mass., Oct. 29.— A dispatch to
• morning paper from Santiago de Cuba,
dated the 26th, says: Another severe bat
tle was fought to-day about twenty miles
north of the city. This is the third within
the last three days, and on the result of
the campaign in this vicinity hangs the
real issue of the war. Both sides are put
ting their entire forces into the field, and
if the insurgents are able to win or even to
hold their own it means victory. Since

have made some advance, hut the insur

PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Oct. 29.— The
statement cabled from Madrid that the
Norwegian steamship Leon had violated
the neutrality laws of the United States
by landing insurgents, with their arms and
ammunition, on the coast of Cuba while
bound from Philadelphia to Jamaica, was
denied by Captain Svanoe of the Leon,
which arrived to-night from Port Antonio.
That there has been no recent landing of
contraband goods by the Leon is admitted
by the Spanish authorities, but they claim
to have proof that two months ago she
landed soldiers and war material on the
north side of the island, between Cape
Maysi and Baracoa, for which $500 was
paid to Captain Svanoe. The fact that
the crew did not receive anything is said
to be the cause of the trouble. There ap
pears to be no doubt that the Spanish gun
boats are on the watch for the Leon, and
that the British steamship Alene fired
upon two weeks ago off Cape Maysi was
mistaken for the Leon.
QUARANTINE, S. 1.. Oct. 29.— The
steamer Antil/a arrived this evening from
Nassau and Purser Howe reports the land
ing in Nassau of twenty-one filibusters
Monday October 21. oy H. M. S. Partridge
irom Inagua, who were under arrest as
alleged Cuban filibusters. It appears
that the men, led it is said by one of the
company named Ruiz, arrived at Inagua
on the lSth inst. from New York on the
steamer Delaware of the Clyde line, a ves
sel in regular trade between New York
and Haytian ports, Inagua being a stop
ping place for laborers. It was learned
that the Partridge was lying in the road
instead of the Delaware.
The following .lay the men were arrested,
it Icing discovered that they were armed,
and under an escort of marines from the
Partridge they were conveyed on board
that ship to be brought to Nassau, a pro
test having been first entered by the men
before D. D. Sargent, United States Con
sular Agent at Inagua. Owing to the
stormy weather the Partridge anchored off
the bar, and it was not until about 3
o'clock next day that the entire company
of alleged filibusters were landed at the
barracks and handed over to the police au
The men were provided with quarters in
the barracks pending an investigation
upon a charge of a breach of the foreign
enlistment act. Senor Dom Pompeyo
Diaz yCossio, Consul for Spain, is active
in his exertions in behalf of his Govern
ment, and the Hon. J. 1. McLean. United
States Consul, too, is closely watching the
proceedings, as several of the men have
entered protests with him against the ac
tion of the Bahama Government in arrest
ing them, claiming to be citizens of the
Unitea States. The details are not before
the public yet, and in the meantime a
keen interest is being taken in the matter
by observers, who are anxious to know the
actual grounds upon which the arrest of
the men is justifiable.
The case was opened in court the next
morning and then adjourned, the men in
the meantime being released under bonds
to appear again in eight days, when the
investigation will be resumed, bail be
ing fixed in the sum of £200 for the
twenty-one and £50 additional for each
man. The following arc the names of the
alleged filibusters: Branlio Peno, Eduardo

MURDERS AND OUTRAGES.
An Official Account of Troubles Between
Armenians and Moslems. 'A-/--:
CONSTANTINOPLE, Turkey, Oct. 29.—
The official accountof the troubles between
the Moslems and Armenians at Marash
accuses the latter of murders and other
outrages on October 24 and 26. Several of
the Armenians were arrested with weapons
in their hands. The report says that peace
has been restored. A band led by Ar
menian agitators attacked and pillaged the j
Mussulman village of Camarly, wounding j
some of the Mussulmans. The com- '
mander ana four or five of the gendarmes
escorting him were killed.
The agitation in the Aleppo district and
at Gumushdagh and Kharpoot is ascribed
to the Armenians. The Governor of Khar
poot, assisted by the Armenian mission

in restoring order.
The fighting at Bitlis resulted in the

BERLIN, Germany, Oct. 29.— Turk
ish embassy here denies the statement
contained in a recent Constantinople dis
patch that fourteen deaths of members of

The statement which is denied above
was to the effect that a menacing letter
was recently found on a table in the apart
ments of Ghazi Osman Pasha, Marshal of
the Yildiz Kiosk. An inquiry showed
that fourteen members of the imperial
household were involved in the writing or
sending of the letter, and it is said that all
these died on the same day in the palace,
a euphonious method of saying that they
had been summarily executed. The dis
patches concluded by stating that the
death of these persons had lifted a weight
from the Sultan's mind.

siderable wonder has been expressed by
many at the large investment made by
Eastern capitalists in the bonds of the
Poso irrigation district, and much curios
ity as to how they expected to realize any
thing, in view of the fact that the region
covered is but sparsely populated, and if
left to natural growth could scarcely hope
to have any large number of people for
years. It appears, however, that the gentle
men have been alive to the fact that colo
nization and irrigation must go hand in
hand, and have not been idle in seeking
the means by which the district could be
made a success.
Negotiations have been in progress for
some time, and now it is definitely stated
by the local agent -of the capitalists that
arrangements have been made by which a
large colony of Danes will settle there
within the next twelve months. The
number already secured as probable set
tlers is put at 3500. The intending col
onists are practical farmers, and none have
been allowed to join who have not the
means necessary to make a proper "start"
in a new country.
It is expected that work on the canals
will be completed some time next month,
and water will then be put upon the land,
making it ready for the settlers, who will

Officers Determined to Bring the
Slayers of Littlefield to
UKIAH, Cal., Oct. 29.— Sheriff Johnson
and Coroner Barker returned from Round
Valley this evening and report everything
quiet in the Mad River country. Yes
Palmer has returned to his home in Covelo.
Henry Carder, who was arrested for the
murder of Charles Felton near Covelo a
week ago, was released from custody, as it
was not believed that he had killed Felton.
The authorities are entirely at sea as to
the perpetrator of the crime, and there is
no clew to his identity. They have, how
ever, succeeded in establishing a motive
which may eventually lead to the discov
ery of the murderer.
Felton at the time he was killed was
engaged to marry Mrs. Annie J. Tanney,
on whose ranch and- stock he held a mort
gage. Mrs. Tanney had expressed the
intention of fencing her ranch, which com
prises about 1000 acres, and lies adjacent
to "King" George E. White's winter range,
and on which White's stock has been
grazing many years. White, it is claimed,
had hinted to several parties that Mrs.
Tanney was in his way. Felton's death
means that his estate would be adminis
tered by a public administrator, and the
mortgage upon Mrs. Tanney's ranch fore
closed and she put off the place.
At the inquest held before Justice Atkin
son over the body of "Jack" Littlefield
Constable Van Horn, the officer who had
charge of Littlefield at the time of the
lynching, testified as follows:
"I had arrested Mr. Littlefield in the
southern part of Trinity County on the
trail that goes from Red Mountain to
Round Valley, Mendocino County, and
started with him for "Weaverville. We
were going down the mountain toward Red
Mountain place, when suddenly some one
in the bushes by the side of the trail com
manded us to halt, saying: 'Hold on
there; we will take that mail in charge.' I
looked to the left, from which direction
the command came, and saw a man raise
and level his rifle at us (at the instant I
didn't know which one), and at the same
time I saw Littlefield jump from his horse.
"I started to pull my pistol, but didn't
get it out, and Littletield hadn't taken
more than one or two steps until the rifle
was fired, and I saw Littlefield throw up
his hands to his breast as though he was
shot. At the same time they said: 'You
fellows go on there — go!' and commenced
a regular fusillade of shots.
"As I started I saw the dark outlines of
men moving in the bushes, and could see
the smoke of rifles of men farther back in
the brush. I looked to the right and saw
Jack fail by the side of a big pine tree. He
ran about thirty feet from where he was
shot before he fell. The mob had masks
on and I couldn't recognize, identify, tell
how many there were or how many shots
"There was a large number of them.
The brush was full of them, and they
kept shooting until we had ridden, I think,
about 150 yards. This all occurred as near
as I can tell between 7:30 and 8 o'clock
p. m. on the 27th day of September, 1895.
Johnny Crow was with me as deputy con
stable, and helped me arrest Littlefield,
and was along when it all took place, he
riding behind 'Jack' and I ahead."
This statement made by Van Horn is
known to be untrue. There were but five
persons present at the time the crime was
committed, and but three shots were fired,
any of which would have proved fatal.
Sheriff Bergin of Trinity, who, with
Sheriff Johnson of this county, has been
investigating the lynching of Littlefield,
returned to his home in Weaverville.
He has determined to arrest eight per*
sons whom he has good reason to believe
were implicated in thp crime. Trinity
County officers refuse to reveal the result
of the inquest until the parties to whom
they attribute the lynching of Littlefield
are under arrest. '
The Republican of this city has been
threatened by a boycott by some of the
residents of Round Valley because it re
fuses to champion the White side of the
controversy. That journal has insisted
that the late crime was due to the feud be
tween the White and anti-White factions
and held White responsible for many mur
ders committed in that section of the

FENCE IN YOUR HEALTH.
Put Up the Bars and Laugh at
Weakness and Disease. '
Thousands of people there are who are
not sick, but every now and then they are
"under the weather." They can't exactly
account for it. Fact is, they are always in
a condition of half-health. Whenever any
extra demands are made on their powers
of endurance or resistance, of morbific in-
fluences they break down.
Everybody should have the greatest
amount of reserve strength something to
spare for emergencies.
Peruvian Bitters, used regularly, will give
you that reserve strength. Its principal
ingredient, the famous Peruvian Bark, is a
wonderful invigorator. You may get enough
nutrition from your food to carry you
along under ordinary circumstances, but
Peruvian Bitters will so increase the effi-
ciency of your digestive system as to lay
up something for "a rainy day" — for a
foggy and windy day, too; will give such
tone and vigor to all your vital functions
that such troubles as rheumatism, neu-
ralgia, colds, malaria, fever, ague, head-
aches, lassitude, etc., which attack and dis-
able the weak, will be fenced and barred out
and nothing interferes with the full enjoy-
ment of your physical and mental powers.
