Madrid, 'March 0. The action of tho
mob element in Vnlencla became po
threatening' Sunday that partial law
wns proclaimed In that city Sunday
night. A crowd numbering fullyN ten
thousand persons met for tho purpose
of holding a meotlng to oxpress antt
Amcrlcan sentiments. Tho authori
ties had issued an order forbidding
the holding of such meetings, but
no attention was paid to it
Tho gendarmes at tho bull ring
refused to allow the mob to enter and
were told that they were traitors to
Spain. Then several persons in the
crowd cried "Long live tho Republic,"
whdreupon the gendarmes charged tho
mob. Tho crowd answered with sev
eral revolver shots, one of tho gend
armes being seriously wounded in
tho chest. Tho situation had as
sumed such a menacing aspect
that orders were given to tho
gendarmes to Are upon tho mob. A
volley was fired from tho carbines car
ried by the gendarmes and tho crowd
scurried for shelter. It Is not known
positively whether anybody was shot
or not, but it is believed that tho volley
was fired over tho heads of the rioters.
Later the courago of tho crowd re
turned, and with augmented numbers
tho mob marched through the streets
shouting: "Long livo Spain," "Death
to tho Yankees."
The police und gendarmes repeatedly
opposed the crowd, but tholr efforts to
restore order were not of tho slightest
avail. The governor of the provinco
then proclaimed martial law and any
further rioting will be dealt with stern-
ly by the military power.
Tho governor, acting under imper
ative orders from Madrid, had concen
trated a strong forco around tho Amer
ican consulate. The crowd attempted
to pass these guards, but were unable
to do so. Then they hurled" inMilts at
tho American government and Amer
ican people Sunday night tho city was
quiet, the mob not having tho courage
to faco the troops who are awaiting or
ders to deal with rioters.
, There was several small disturbances
Sunday at Saragossa but the authori
ties were alert nud determined and tho
rioters wclc easily dispersed.
At Uilboa, a crowd of 500 persons at
tempted to irmlco an attack upon tho
American consulate but were prevented
by the police.
At Victoria, posters were put upon
walls declaring that Spain must go to
war with tho United States and put a
curb on Yankee arrogance.

Nr.w Yohk, Murcli I). A dlsputch to
tho Herald froiR Havana says: Cupt.
Gen. Weylcr has issued two highly im
portant edicts which are expected to
bring out of the lebol ranks mnnj per
sons who aro willing to avail them
sches of ills proffered pardon on tho
conditions named. The lusurgcuts aro
well aware that 18,000 troops hayo th
rived as reinforcements during tho last
three weeks, and that fuct is counted
upon tb inUucncc many of them. Tho
proposed amnesty, however, is qual
ified by. so many limitations that Cu
bans generally are disposed to doubt
whether many rebels will surrender
under its terms. The first edict ap
plies only to the provinces of 1'inar Del
Rio and Havana, where tho govern
ment entertains tlio most sangnine
hopo of being able to hold the coming
Tho primary purpose of the first fivo
articles of tho edict seems to uo to per
fect the complete military occupation
of all parts of those provinces, includ
ing such towns nnd villages as havo
been hitherto moro or less under rebel
iiilluoncc, thus clquring the way for tho
coming elections by bringing all the
country districts under direct govern
ment protection. These five articles
practically place under the bandit laws
of Spain all insurgent bunds still oper
ating in tho western provinces. The
civil guards, who nro to bo mobilised
there, are tho special foes of that class
of outlaws. As Solomayer, son of the
commander-in-chief of this Chilian
army, is now reported to lie in com
mand of the rebels operating in J'inar
Del Rio, hib forces arc included in that
category of law-breakers.
Articles six to eight pi ovule for tho
confiscation of the property of all rebels
who fail to avail themselves of tho of
fered amnesty within a period of 15
days, and specify the limitations under
which pnrdbn may be granted. Persons
guilty of overt- acts, such us robbing,
looting or burning property, aro not
eligible, and if they have been connected
with tho bands engaged in such work
thoy must purge themselves of individ
Article nino is aimed especially at lo
cal officials who havo deserted their
posts in time of danger.
Article ten makei all residents nlong
the lines of railroad or telegraph re
sponsible for prompt information of
damage done to such' systems, and ex
acts their active co-opjjration in tho
maintenance of repairs.
As the insurgents aro in tho habit of
hanging or shooting persons engaged
in such tasks, this .article, if vigorously
onforced, is likely to lead to great hard

charge entering his head and neck.

scene and found Lul'olnt shooting
right and left. Linsley shot 'at La-
Point with his revolver, but missed
