FROM THE FRONT
Rumors as to Whereabouts of

CAMPOS SATE IN HAVANA.

1 IntcrrU' eil Preparations For tha
Dofenso of Ilarnna Still
Hjlvana, Doo. 27. Slnco the arrival
hers last night of Cnptain Oonornl
Martluoz do Campos from Matanzas ho
has' been in conforonco with leading
inllltary ami naval ofilcinls, tlio civil
dlgnitarios and tho loadors of tho differ
ent political partios. Thoy assomblod
at the palaco Inst night and in tho
course of a nntnher of patriotio speoohos
plodged tholr unconditional support to
tho govornmont in its efforts to suppress
the insurrection aud promised to ao
everything possible in tho way of moral
and notnal assistance.
News fiora tho front scorns to bo in
torrnp'od both by rail and tolegraph
and no information was obtainable con
oarning tho movomouts of tho insnr
gouts. Tho captain gouor.nl, upon his
arrival here, announced that tho Span
ish troops in Matauzas ocenpiod advan
tageous positions and that tho Cabana
would either ba compolled to fight a
pltohed battle in that provinoo or sur
render. It is not gtmorally bolievod,
however, that the maroli of Gomez and
Maceo upon Havana has really been
etoppod and that they aro in rotreat. In
napport of this it is said that if Gomoz
aud Maceo woto retreating tho govern
ment would not boslqw in making pub
Ho every ltom of news obtainablo con
cerning this foaturo of tho hitherto tri
umphant march of tho insurgonte from
the province of Puorto Prmoipo.
Iu tho moanwhile activo preparations
lro being made horo for tho dofonso and
forwarding to tho front all tho troops
which can be sparod. It is understood
that thvJ Spanish, columns in tho roar of
tho insurgent army have boon ordered
to conoontrato as quickly as possiblo to
the frouticr of Matauzas aud that every
effort is to bo mado to prevent the ro
treat of tho Cubans into Santa Clara.
Throughout tho night and all day
thoro has boon an air pf hurry aud
anxiety at tho dlfforont hoadquartcrB
hero which does not seem to iudicato
that tho supremo authorities aro iu any
way satisfied that tho insurgents aro re
treating, and if military activity goes
for anything, tho most dotorminod of.
forts aro being made to provont a sur
prise. Thoro is considerable speculation hero
ns to tho aotual number of men under
tho oommand of Gomoz and Maceo.
Tho highest estimates have it that tho
Cuban army uninbors 12,000 men, whilo
tho lowost number of followers tho
Insurgent loaders aro credited with hav
ing under tholr command is 0,000. It
is to bo presumed, howover, that Gomoz
nnd Maceo may havo 10,000 mou with
them, as they aro known to have been
joined by largo numbers of adherents
ainco thoy entored tho provinco of Ma
tauzes. Tho insurgents havo also boon
plentifully supplied with ammunition,
sold to havo been stored for their use at
dlffcront points aud accumulated and
hidden for mouths past. j
A conservative ostimato of tho forcos
at tho disposal hero of tho captain gen-1
oral has boon mado, aud it is estimated j
that he has about 20,000 regulars aud '
0,000 volunteers with which to moot tho
insurgent army. But tho Spanish rogu- j
lqrs uud voluntcors are scattcrod over a i
largo ospauso oi forts anil iortiiicanons
composing tho defousos of Havana, and
whon the brilliant achievement of
Gomez and Maceo in passing through
the many Spanish columns, said to
number from 40,000 to 80,000 men, in
tho provlncos of Santa Clara and Ma
tauzas is taken into consideration, thoro
is some justification for the belief of tho
frionds of tho luturgont cause that it
will not bo long bofbro Gomoz and Ma
ceo aro outsido of Ilavauo. This, how
over, is ridiculed by tho Spanish author
ities hero, who claim that tho insurgent
movement has received n decided chooki
