says is au accurate translation
of a Jctrcr he received yester

Mr Juan Manes Galveston
Dear Friend We are in a
great panic In Calabazarfive
miles from here there has been
a great fight between the Span
iards and the Cubans com
manded by the officers Castil
lo and Deigado The Span
iards had 4 6 killed and 106
wounded The Cubans sur
prised die Spaniards who were
getting some cattle to take to
Calabazar and were not ex
pecting to meet the patriots
In Aguacate the Spaniards
had a skirmish with the Cubans
in which six Spaniards were
killed Everybody feels dis
couraged as they are sure that
the money and lives that are
spent to keep the Spanish flag
in Cuba is for naught as soon
the Cuban flag is going to float
on all the buildings
In Puerto Padre the rebels
had a fight with the Spanish
gunboat Ligera wounding die
head officer and doinsr damage
to the gunboat
On the 14th of Sepetember
die insurgents got into the city
of San Miguel of Nuevitas
taking possession of the city
and taking out a great quanti
ty of provisions and rifles
Very soon Ernesto Jose Varo
na who was made prisoner by
Weylers troops is to be shot
Among the Spaniards the feel
ing is terrible about the foreign
nations refusing to lend Spain
any more money
Lieutenant Rodriguez in
charge of the forces that in
Calabazar were surprised by
the patriots has died from the
result of the wounds received
by the machetes
In Pinar del Rio General
Antonio Maceo is in fine pos
ition Availing for Genera Wey
ley to come to attack him
Weder ha sent to die trocha
Mariel Majaa 6000 more sol
diers to take the place of the
ones that ha died of yellow
All the Americans who are
able are ic sug the island as
they fear the Spaniards may
abuse thorn on account of the

Sta instant
A Letter Addressed to Him
by National Committee
man Hale
Roanoke Ya Oct 6 The
Roanake Times will tomorrow
print an open letter from G
W B Hale populist national
committeeman for Virginia
addressed to Tom Watson
asking the latter to withdraw
from the presidential ticket
The letter says in part
Hon Thomas E Watson
From a sense oi patriotic duty
I write to yoi to cease your
opposition to fusion where the
same is generally believed to
be of advantage to the imme
diate success of financial re
form to which you have so far
so greatly contributed There
is no earthly chance of your
election If your cause wins
in tiiis race Bryan and Sewall
are elected While I greatly
prefer a southern man to vote
for and a man who like your
self has been in the fore front
of the battle hitherto fought
for reform yet I can not hesi
tate to support Mr Sewall
not only because of his avail
ability but also because I be
lieve that if elected tind the
opportunity presents itself he
will consciously carry out the
full text of the platform upon
which he wTas selected I am
not one who thinks that be
cause Mr Sewall is at present
a banker he is obdurate on the
question of national banks I
do not blame the law that
legislates national banks for if
you say the man who votes for
Sewall had a well and as con
sistently vote for Hobart the
former himself in favor of free
coinage at the ratio of 16 to 1
the other one savors of mon
ometallism Quite a differ
ence my 16 to one friend
The former is willing ripht
nowy to establish free and un
limited coinage the latter is
willing to postpone action un
til the merchants of England
say so The former is the
tangible the latter is positive
ly not so
In conclusion my dear sir
allow me to emphasize that
your stay on the ticket jeopar
dizes the success of our cause
and that a withdrawal on your
part would be heralded with
patriotic delight by many of
our party friends and largely
by those who esteem you as a
great and grand man Yours

Cameron County is the extreme
southern county of Texas It is
separated from Mexico by the Rio
Grande on the south and has about
100 miles of gulf coast as its east
ern boundary It was organized in
1848 and contains 3308 square
miles Farming and stock raising
are the principal industries of the
people the location climate and soil
being admirably adapted for both
The greater p ortion of the soil is a
rich loam and produces an exceed
ingly heavy yield of both cotton
and corn the chief farm products
Two and sometimes three crops of
corn uveraging from fiftv to seven
ty bushels per acre are raised year
ly while cotton will easily yield
from one to two bales per acres
Grasses grow all the year and stock
fiud pasturae without being fed or
sheltered during the winter But
the soil and climate of the Lswer
Rio Grande VaLey are by nature
best adapted for the production of
vegetables and fruits Vegetables
af till kinds grow all the year
oround and northern people are as
tonished to find tomatoes lettuce
spinach English peas etc served
fresh from the gardens in midwin
ter This is undoubtedly the par
adise of truck gardeners and so
soon as rail transportation is ob
tained Cameron county vegetables
by the car load will be shipped to
noriliprn markets during winter ami
early spring and will obtain the
highest prices as there will be no
competition This is due to our
exceedingly mild climate Fre
quently the entire winter passes
without a single frost and there is
rarely ever any cold sveather before
Christmas Fruit culture has not
been attempted in this county on 11
large scale but there is one large
buuana plantation on which this
delicious fruit yields most abund

Grapes are also raised extensively
growing in almost every yard They
ripen from two to four weeks ear
lier than in any other section
Many planters here make all of
their own table wines Oranges
and lemons also grow in profusion
and this section could easily be
made to rival Florida in the pro
duction of oranges Suear cane is
ulso one of the most important pro
pucts of this valley The Rio
Grande plantation of Mr Geo Urn
lay and the Rabb Starck plantation
produce griat quantities of cane
which is all manufactured on the
Rio Grande plantation This cane
makes sugar which is produced by
experts to be even superior to the
bpst Louisiana product Havana
tohaeco has also proven a success
here Col J G Tucker having
made some most successful experi
ments with it his samples were
classed by New York buyers as
equal to the best Havana
