carrying on thirteen fishermen into
the middle of the lake. Four men
were saved by boats, but the wiDd

perish during the night. The ice was
blown against Green Island, where all

New York, Jan. 16. President
Blair, of the Wheeling and Lake Erie

today in refereac to the appointment of

ly from the extremely low rates in
bituminous coal traffic, which com
prises more than one half the compa

failures .did the rest. The property,
however, is in excellent condition, and
the interest on the bonded debt will
be punctually paid.

Hugh P. Kane remarked: "Mr. Stuart
did not take me into his confidence, but
it is likely that he has gone east, per
haps to Chicago, to unfold all his plans
and .divulge all his secrets to the
newspaper correspondents, in order to

Howe on seeing what was up, thought

CUBAN GENERAL GOMEZ GETTING
READY TO ATTACK HAVANA.
Severe Loss at the Battle of Santa
Clara. The Insurgents Are Stead
ily Coming: Up.
The New York Press of yesterday
claims to have received news through
private channels that General Maximo
Gomez, who stormed and captured the
important city of Santa Clara January
!, is now moving on Havana with
18,000 men. The famous cavalry leader,
Quintin Bandera, was mortally
wounded, the Press says, and General
Luque, commanding the Spanish, was
News received last night said the
losses were: Spanish estimated killed
and wounded, 900: prisoners, ,00: can
non captured, 18; battle standards, 4:
rifles in Spanish arsenal, 5,000, with
plenty of ammunition.
Cubans killed and wounded. 1,500'
which is 600 more than the Spanish
loss. The Press quotes Carlos Roloff
saying the report is credible. The
junta has no news.
Late reports from Havana indicate
an invasion of Havana province soon.
The insurgents are near Havana, and
large parties are seen daily near the
surburbs, five to ten miles from the cap
ital. Calvarious, less than ten miles
from the city, was sacked Saturday,
the insurgents driving out the Spanish
garrison of 700 men and then burning
nearly half the place. They seized a
large amount of supplies, destroying
all they could not carry off.
Two large field pieces that they
could not take with them handily, not
having horses, were spiked and render
ed useless to the Spanish. These two
guns had just been received by Weyler,
and one had been sent there last week.
By the irony of fate one bore "Weyler's
name, and was inscribed, "To aid Wey
ler's glorious deeds." Tbe retiring
Cubans defaced the inscription, and
placed a placard on it reading "Butch
ers only need cleavers."
General Weyler is greatly worried
over the attacks made by the insurgent
bands so near the capital, and the
Havana papers have the strictest or
ders not to mention anything of the
kind under the severest penalty. It is
common news in Havana, and the peo
ple, while outwardly loyal to Weyler,
are in reality biding their time to over
throw him and get Campos back.
Weyler's campaigns are made the jest
of the officers in private, and his entire
army is disloyal to him, on account of
his neglect of it. Two hundred wound
ed soldiers came into Havana Friday
and Saturday. All information regard
ing them was refused, and they were
hastily sent to the hospitals.
In less than a week the advance
guard of Gomez's army has destroyed
by fire 21 of the most valuable sstates
in the province of Matanzis and the
work of destruction continues as the
army moves along. The people of Ha
vana are at least becoming thoroughly
alarmed at the situation and all that
possibly can have already left tbe
Those who have been detained are
making preparations to leave with all
possible haste. Many of those who
have been outwardly loyal to Spain
have lost all confidence in General
Weyler's ability to hauulo the
insurgents, and thev now actually fear
for the safety of Havana. Skirmish
es occur every day in Pinar del Rio.
