New Orleans. La.. November 14.—The Picayune has received the following from its staff correspondent: Havana, Cuba. November S.—There ! arc so many conflicting rumors flying around on the island, so many reports which are often untrue or exaggerated that your correspondent's work is a most difficult and dangerous one. for if any life is considered cheap here, it is that of an American newspaper corres pondent. The latest application of “gag law” is the decree by Captain Gen eral Weyler whereby all news dealers are compelled to send one copy of each and every newspaper they are going to sell, to be approved or disapproved by the censor. In this manner all news ; papers containing the reports of the war are quietly squelched. There is no doubt that the election of Wm. McKinley is a source of much worry to the Spanish government, for it is generally conceded that the new President will do something towards recognizing the insurgent govern ment’s belligerency. r rora one of General \\ evler s secre taries it is learned that General Weyler has Issued instructions to all the cap tains of cruisers that whenever an ex pedition is caught that court-martial is to be made on the spot, and the execu tion to follow in order to avoid interna tional complications, such as Lue Com petitor case. In the case of political prisoners here there is no such thing as justice, for I the judges have to give a verdict against I the prisoners or incur the enmity of j the Captain General. In order to ferret out the work of 1 the insurgents the Spanish govern I ment has sent two men to New York, i two men to New Orleans, and four to the Florida towns, all Cubans, and of the province of Santa Clara and Matan zas. with the purpose of mixing in with the Cubans, ascertaining their plans, and then advising the Spanish govern ment. Of battles, there have 1 < n many, in which much blood has been shed, and they have been suppressed by the cen sor. General Eschague met a terrible de feat and he has been quite badly wounded, so much so that it is feared he will die of the result of the various 1 wounds he received. The battle was fought at Guayahitos. The Spaniards left Santiago de los Banon some 1.500 strong, and with a sect in of a battery. They met the insurgents, who were fortified, and the fight lasted all day. the Spanish remaining on the defensive, only advancing when the insurgents had withdrawn their men from the hills. From men who were in the en gagement I learn the artillery was with out officers, and one entire company of the Araphiles battalion was almost annihilated. The official report to the Captain General reads that there were only fifteen killed and ninety-three \vounded. but from one of the lieuten ants who came to Havana, I am reli ably informed that the deaths were G"> and the wounded 17H. Among the wounded were Lieutenant Colonels Aragon. Rodriguez and Romero. It seems that the insurgents had their dynamite gun in working order and did much damage with it. By newspapers ree..-iv< 1 from the Unit i States. I learn that the insurgents are nport..l to have »<• -n dislodged from their positions. The Insurgents are vet in the mountains of Plnar del Rio. M u oe, with a small band, went to receive an ex pedition, and th Spanish officials added that he had been dislodged. They will have a time in p. tting him out of the mountains, and as Maximo Gomez, with a strong force, is coming up from Cama puey. it is much in doubt if Gen. tv. yler will he able to remain in Hahana long. H. will either have to go to Pinar cM Rio or Santa Clara prot ince to direct opera tions. In fact, ev n his own men are com tainlng of his inactivity. At Guaox the insurgents defeated the punish troops under Bernal, and though ley report only nine dead and thirty •v.-n wounded, after five hours- fighting, nd give the Cubans a loss of h"! dead nd wounded, still from a medical stu i nt who is stationed at Regia. I 1 am nat from this action th* Spaniards rought ninety-seven wounded soldiers to le hospitals, to say nothing of th- num or of men w ho were h ft behind, too a.ilv wounded to he carried. The plantations of San Jose de Mu sens nd San Luis, two of the fin.-.-t in th- isl nd. have been totally burned hv the in lrgents in Matanzas. The Buenaventura 1 mtation was burned, with machinery nd outhouses, including a beautiful brick The executions continue as merrily as ever and it has come to such a pass now that' the court-martial is held at night, and the officers often .J.-eide the death renal tv without even having the prisoners present to make a defense.

The only ' thing that could be construed to give that impression is the mounting of a battery , of heavy s a coast guns along the coast above Havana.

November 14.— A special to the Citizen from Tampa ■ gives an interview with a recent arrival from Cuba, a most trustworthy person, telling of a mandate of Gen. Weyler. I He issued an order converting all of the public buildings of Havana into hospitals, including the Ursuline con vent. Bishop Saneander V. Frutos, when informed of the order, endeav ored to dissuade Weylev. but he was an swered very abruptly, the latter declin ing to rescind the order and threaten ing to imprison the bishop, even though there were suggestions of ex communication. After the bishop’s departure, however. Weyler became frightened and issued an order except ing the convent from the provisions of the mandate. The bishop was incens ed and left for Home to lay his griev ance before the Pope. Should the Pope decide to take an exception to the ac tion of Weyler. it may cause a serious turn of affairs in Spain. KENTUCKY Fall Official Returns, Show One Bryan Elector Chosen By 2.000.

It Attracted an Enormous Crowd to See the Start London. November 1 i.—An enor mous crowd, including the Duke of Trek and Princes Edward and Herman, of Saxe-Weimar. witnessed the start to-day of about sixty motor cars and cycles, under the auspices of the .Mo tor Car Club, in an inaugural journey from London to Brighton, this being the date when the new highway act conies into force. The start was pie- j ceded by a breakfast at the Metropole. after which the chairman, the Earl of Winchelsea, amid loud cheers, tore up the red flag, which, according to the law. has hitherto been necessary to carry in front of road motors. A num ber of the motor cars are electric; oth ers belong to the Britannic Company j system, and to the Great Wheellcss Carriage Company. The British Motor syndicate, which has acquired all the principal patents for Great Britain, is represented by over a dozen cars and vans, and the Pennington carriage, an American invention, lias also entered. The start was made from the hotel at 10:30 a. m. Luncheon was served en route at Reigate, and upon arrival at Brighton, a dinner was served at the Hotel Metropole. The first motor that reached Three Bridges knocked down a little girl and she was taken to the hospital set- , iously injured. The American Durvea motor was the first to arrive at Brighton, reaching that place in four hours. A DYNAMITE EXPLOSION Produce* Sf*r!nu« Result* at Niagara Fall*. Several Killed and Injured.

New York, November 14.—Two edi torials, as well as some small items, from the pen of Thomas Merrick Jones appeared in the Irish Republic during the absence of C. O'C. McLaughlin, the editor of that paper, through illness. One. headed “Unmasked,'' denounced Joseph Chamberlain, British colonial secretary, in unmeasured terms, just after he bad landed in New York on his recent visit here. It is said that the re sult of this article was to have Mr, Chamberlain placed under the protec tion of detectives during his stay in America. The editorial whirh occasioned the greatest excitement among Irishmen and denunciation by them generally, was published in the Irish Republic on September 13, last, a week after Dr. Thomas Gallagher, who was released from Portland prison, had arrived here. Jones was one or the amnesty com mittee. which received Gallagher, and his denunciation of the Doctor's prison treatment was hitter in the extreme. In the next Issue <*f the paper lie hud published an editorial article headed, ••Strike Her to the II* ajt.” which refers 10 England's treatment of Gallagher. "Whitehead and oth**r political prisoners ia England’s jails, and says: “What are we going to do with ull this English barbarity?” “Gallagher and Whitehead, or Murphy, are American citizens. Will this govern ment stand idly by without a word of pro test against thus inhuman treatment? Burely not.” In conclusion, the editorial says: •*A Mill further duty rests upon Irish m* n.

Cleveland, Ohio, November 14.—Na tional Republican Committeeman Henry C. Payne, chairman of the Chi cago headquarters, arrived in the city from New York to-day, and with Gen. \Y. M. Osborne, of the New York head quarters, who came up from Canton j last night, held a long conference with Hon. M. A. Hanna, in the latter's pri ! vate office in the Perry-Payne build ing. It is stated that among other subjects discussed was that of formulating plans in connection with the future of the Republican organization. At the conclusion of the conference General Osborne was asked by a re porter: "Has Major McKinley commenced considering cabinet possibilities?” "I guess that is about the only thing agitating his mind nowadays. He re alizes that he has a hard task on his hands.” “Would ex-President Harrison Iip ac ceptable to the McKinleyites for the Secretary of State portfolio?” "Most certainly, hut I do not believe lie would accept it. His law partner has given it out that Mr. Harrison would not be in a position to accept the honor.” “All kinds of rumors are in the air about the Secretary of the Treasury. It goes without saying that Mr. Hanna can have anything he wants. The point is. does he want anything?” "It may take Mr. McKinley until a week before liis inauguration before he will have decided on the complete make-up of his cabinet.” “if the permanent headquarters of the organization goes to Washington, will you be in charge?" "The question of a permanent head quarters, as far as I know has not yet hetui positively decided upon. The mat ter rests solely with Mr. Hanna.
