Washington, Jan. 14. Consul General
Lee has reported to the state depart
ment from Havana the facts connect
ed with the rioting there. The ultra
Spanish elements and army and volun
teer ofllcers began the rioting. The riot
ers mobbed several Liberal newspapers
and gathered In crowds In the public
squares crying: "Long live Spain!"
"Long live the army!" "Long live the
As the jeering crowd was headed by
army ofllcers in uniform, the police
made no attempt to stop the demon
stration, and all appeals to the military
governor for protection of property
were unanswered. The riots, after ba
lng quelled for a time, broke out afresh
In the evening, when a crowd of excit
ed persons gathered in the Plaza de
Armas, in front cf the palace, shout
ing: "Long live the king. Weyler and
Spain!" The cavalry dispersed th
group and the avenues leading to the
palace are now held by the mounted
Threaten American Consulate.
It is said the riots were caused "by
the refusal of Captain General Blanco
to suppress the Liberal ptess. .VDown
with autonomy!" was the cry of th
rioters as they gathered around th?
American consulate. General Blanco
ordered a heavy guard of Spanish sol
diers to the scene to hold the rlot?rs.
According to General Lee's report the
disturbance had been quelled for the
time being but he was apprehensive of
another outbreak at any moment.
Nothing has been heard from the con
sul general since, so It Is assumed -at
the state department that the situation
remains unchanged In Havana. Gen
eral Lee did not ask to have a war
ship font to Havana, aniln the opin
ion of. the stats' department , officials
that I a sufficient rt-ason-for the . as
sumption thaV there U no occasion, for
rending one. ' "J . -.; . .,, .
Not Apprehenalvi' of Tiouble. '
The officials are evidently not appre
hensive of any trouble In the Immedi
ate future that will require the forci
ble Intervention of our government. The
disquieting -feature of the situation Is
the horrible- condition -of the poor In
Cuba.. According to General Lee's ad-
vics-:iWr.js.y4JMin 200.000 people on the-
Island are in the last stages or destitu
tion and are wholly dependent "upon
charity. To feed these people on a 10
eent ration per day would cust $20,000
dally, which rum Is double the amount
so far received in contributions daring
the past ten days by the state depart
ment. In the opinion of General Lee
no less than 20 per cent, of these poor
people are surely doomed to death from
starvation and disease. In such a state
of affairs the existence of any form of
organized government Is threatened and
the autont my plans of the Spanish gov
ernment command little attention.
Naval Authorities Itemuln Serene.
The naval authorities maintain their
serenity notuwithstanding many ru
mors of radical action, such as the dis
patch of warships to Havana and like
stories. Secretary Long was asked
whether any of the American ships had
been ordered to be ready to sail fur
Havana. He replied that while he could
not discuss the matter he would say
that he had not made any change In
the battleship Maine, now lying et
Senor De Lome, the Spanish minister,
has received dispatches from Dr. Con
gosto, the secretary general of Cuba,
stating that there had been an outbreak
In Havana, but that It was over and
that no apprehension was felt of fur
ther trouble of a serious nature.

HANNA WELCOMED HOME.

Cleveland, Jan. 14. Senator M. A.
Hanna was received in this city upon
his return from Columbus with an en
thusiasm far greater than that which
has been accorded any public man in
this city in a decade. Long before the
hour of the train's arrival thousands
gathered upon the streets and began to
line the sidewalks. At noon the Tip
pecanoe club, the Business Men's
!3ague and the Republican shop clubs
gathered in front of the Masonic build
ing on Superior street and formed for
fcarade. Haif the town turned out to
see them. Headed by a brass band they
marched to the Union depot, where Sen
ator Hanna was met by them. He was
escorted to a carriage and rode to the
Hollenden with James 11. Hoyt. ,
' The senator was lustily cheer?! all
along the line of march, many business

Senator Hanna at the Hollenden made
a very happy speech. He said:
"This home-coming is sweeter to me
than any honors that have ever been
conferred upon me. I have been elect
edto the senate by the Republican
party, but hereafter I am the servant
of all the people."
Senator Hanna received the following
telegram from Senator J. B. Foraker

Fort Smith, Ark., Jan. 14. Up to 9
o'clock in the morning forty-three bod
ies have been taken from the ruins left
by the terrible cyclone. Of these seven
are yet unidentified. AH night long res
cuers worked In the debris bringing out
bodies of the dead. In the ruins of a
boarding house the bodies of four men
were found, none of whom have been
identified. It i believed that there
are other bodies deeper down in the
debris, but there is no record of the
number in the building nor of their
names. Among the unidentified are the
bodies of three women, so terribly mu
tilated that they will probably never be
recognized. One of them is supposed
to be Mrs. Will Lawson. The others
will probably never be known. There
is still a steady stream of people pass
ing through the morgue, viewing the
mangled dead, and It is barely possible
that some distinguishing marks may
yet rescue some of those now unidenti
fied from unknown graves.
A Day of Funeral.
It has been a day of funerals. Over
thirty cyclone victims were laid at rest
in the various cemeteries. The bells
toll out their sad story all over the
city, and the entire populace walks .with
bowed heads, sorrowing foi departed
friends. Hardly a man is left who has
not lost a relative, a frler.d or a famil
iar face, and the whole city mourns
its dead together. The last tribute to
the mangled forms brings out more
acutely the sorrow, and the day has
been one of tears and sobs In Fort
Smith. The work cf rescuing the dead
is now followed by charity to the living.
Scores of people lost their homes, and
hundreds are left without employment.
Those who were spared by the disaster
have come nobly forward and are shar
ing with their unfortunate neighbors.
