Contluued on Fourth l'tjft ~e Editor of the OiScial Organ of the Junta, In New York City, Fiat’y Contra dicts Most of the Cuban Captain General’s Statements —Macoo's ' Military Superiority Over Woy ler Plainly Shown — Weyler’s Promises Shown to be falla cious—The Rights and Privileges of Cubans Compared With Native Spaniards—True Story of the Lib eration of the Slaves. NEW YOKIC, November 2?.—Enrique Jose Varona, editor of Paula, the olllcial organ of the Cuban Junta in this city, and ex-Deputy from Havana to the Mad- ! rid Parliament, makes a detailed reply to Captain-General Weyler's statement made j to a representative of the Associated Press in Havana. Signor Varona said: “Regarding General Weyler’s state- 1 meats that Maceo is continually scatter ing his forces in order to escape the Span ish columns which, he says, are hunting him, the conclusion he draws from the scattering of forces is absurd. It does not follow that because the forces are scat tered. it is because they sock to avoid capture. The scattering of forces by Maceo is duo to a preconcerted action. ! The forces are scatt ri d and concerted ! at will by Maceo, and he thereby makes I sure of losing as few men as possible and of striking blows when he is least ex- j pected by General Weyler to do so. “Maceo cannot afford to lose as many men as Weyler can, for Spain sends men like droves of sheep to the slaughter. The tactics of which General Weyler complains are evidences of Maceo's su periority as a military tactlclon over Wey ler. “General Weyler's promise of the nrly pacification of the provino of Havana, Matanzas and Santa Clara is shown to b • false by the fa t that the rebels have sus : . tied themselves in those provincvs ••■.or since the arrival of General Campos, Wey ler's predecessor, and the constant multi pli tlon of the rebel numbers, notwith standing that the railroad and telegraph facilities are in the hands of the Span iards, the ease of approach to those pro vinces from Havana and the easy trans portation of armies of men and all tiie resources furnished to the troops by an established government. In the face of all this and of the constant dt pletion of ranks by fevers, the Cubans have not been sub dued. and will not bo subdued in those provinces. “His further assurances that Holguin, Puerto Principe and Ilayamo aro unnec essarily protected Is a fallacy In itself. He bases his claim that the rebel forces la that section have been weakened on the single fact of the lamentable death of Jose Maceo. Appreciating fully the great loss v.hP-h the rebels have suffered through his death, I maintain that as a lead, r, j his successor. General ("alixto Garcia, not only adds prestige to the revolution, but j h is been instrumental In bringing many ; additional followers to the Hag of free j v. una. “Ton years’ war has amply proven that the war could ho carried on Indefinitely from those provinces, and that by hold ing only those provinces we eoud make perpetual war in Spain." I.envtnR the out rloa of military tactl> s, j Signor Varona turned his attention to wards those portions of Gen. \\ • vh r’s statements In which the Captain G e ral seeks to show that the Cubans arc not such sufferers from Spanish tyranny as they claim to be. Signer Varona said: “Gen. W'evlcr told your correspondent that after ls*o Spain grant*-] ample and numerous Cuban representation and that the Cubans were permit el to intervene directly in the . str'tlishm* at of ';--il rights with th* Thine,can Spaniards in tlit coloni**«. Tic cNn told your corr» spondent that the provincial and muni '-’pal laws aro alike in the provinces and In Spain. 11" assure,] yotu . ot resr ■ it*l• r.t that the Cubans have fre> dom of press, meeting and association, and that tho laws of Madrid are the laws of Cuba. “In reply to that p rmlt mo to state that the Cu’>an representation of which the General boasts was and !s a sham for two reasons: First. because tlm number of Cuban electors Is limited In such » manner that they reprtwwjt only about three per cent, of the popuiaton. Second, the lawn were friuu.-d In such a manner that the resident Spaniards would always have the major proportion of the repre sentation. Vp to the present time tho average membership of Cubans in the Parliament has been three, the highest number ever reached being seven. The sana suite o' affairs exists in the muni* i pal and provincial governments. T1 is, notwithstanding that throughout the • n- ' tire island in the city and country dis tri’ U •> iprivl itt i't ujunty of tne ■ population is native Cuban. “*bn. Weyler taiks of the freedom of slavery in Cttba ns a Spanish achieve ment. The abolition of slavery in Cuba Is entirely due to the Cubans themselves who. notwithstanding the fact that they were slaveholders, have always been abolitionists. They compelled the inser- j tlon of a clause in the treaty of Znnjon j which provided for absohito freedom for ] th« se colored serfs who fought under the Cuban dag. ••The Sranlshe government was com pelled to grant this freedom, and inas- | much as It was Impossible to grant the privilege of freedom to the rebel negroes and not to the loyalist negroes, who were hut partial slaves, it became necessary to grant freedom to all." INTERESTED IN PKNOT.ETON. Congressman Cooper Calls Secretary OUlev’* Attention to the Report* from Havana. * Washington. November 2S.—Con gressman Cooper, of Florida, was very nulch interested in the report that C. g Pendleton, a Florida newspaper I man. had hern taken off the Morgan I ine steamer at Havana v sterday by the Spanish authorities as he was about to sail for Key West. Mr. Cooper says he has known Mr. Tendieton for fif teen Years, and that he is a man of standing and influence in his coinmun itv and a bona fide citizen of the United States. He is the proprietor of the Equator Democrat at Key West. Mr. Cooper says Pendleton is in poor health. and that if ho were imprisoned in a damp cell in Morro Castle his life might bo placed in joepardy. The Florida Congressman went to the State Department the first thing this morn ing in quest of additional details of tho arrest. Secretary Olney told him the department had received no report on the case. The Secretary was inclined to think Mr. Pendleton had not been arrested, but had been merely detained on account of some irregularity in his passports. However, he promptly cabled Vice Consul Springer, at Ha vana. to investigate and report imme diately on the case so that prompt ac tion may be taken to protect bis r.ghts as an American citizen.

The Number Will Not Be Known for Months Till the Snow Melts and the Drifts Disappear—The Storm Was G-oneral, aucl Railroads and Telegraphs are Prostrated. St. Paul, Minn., November 28.—Hu man beings have been frozen to death, cattle have been stampeded and buried and smothered in snow drifts, trains are delayed, wires are down and the November storm record is broken by the blizzard that holds the Northwest locked in its chilly grasp. How many human lives have been sacrificed cannot be told until the snow drifts clear away, months hence. Men are missing everywhere In the heart of the storm. Some are known to he dead and many are missing with the chances very much against them being alive. Those dead and missing are: Anderson Thomas, IS years old, lost in the snow near Moorhead, Minn. Burrows, F. M., mail agent, lost in the storm at Devil’s Lake, N. D. Vack, Frank, of Chicaco, frozen to death near Fargo, N. D. Two unidentified men, found frozen to death near Fargo. Three missing men. lost in the snow’ near Fargo. From the cattle country on the west ern part of North Dakota comes reports of intense suffering from the live stock on the ranges, but no definite infor mation can be secured as the wires are down. Watson Ham, a cattleman, says the loss will he extremely heavy. South Dakota is suffering, too. At Pierre over eight inches of snow fell in the storm of Thursday and Friday, and the wind maintained an average velocity of twenty-eight miles an hour. Wires wore down most of the time and trains ard street cars tied up. The first train to move went out about noon to-day with a snow plow. Cattle on the prairie drifted badly and losses are being reported. It. was the worst storm for years. Some of tho Trans-Continental rail roads centering at St. Paul resumed their through service to-day. The wind having abated they were able to send out rotaries and snowplows, and ex pected that within six hours they would be alee to send through traifie along in good shape, provided no serious damage has been sustained by their tracks. , '.Vires are still in bad shape and it is impossible to get deflnie reports re garding conditions in certain sections, but the railway companies set large bodies of competent men to work and [ made rapid progress. Frnm all rc ports received there seems to be noth ing to contend with except immense snow banks, which, however, the ro und s can easily remove. From latest | reports it is safe to predict to-mor row everything will be moving pretty well, thought not on schedule. Huron, S. I)., November 2R.—The snow blockade was raised and traffic on this division of the Chicago and Northwestern railway resumed to night. The Great Northern will begin business again Monday. Telegraph incs are badly demoralized. Stock or. os on the Northern and Western ranges are very heavy, but no suffer ing among the settles is yet reported. The storm lasted forty hours and was oao of the most severe experienced since the settlement of this coun try. Moorhead. Minn., November 2$.— Thomas Anderson, aged Ik. was lost in the blizzard Thursday night. Search ing parties were out all night and to day. but no trace of the body could lie found.
