AltlHMiirh Admitting That tho Mayor of .Miiiiz.iinlllo In Competent nud Was n llriivo Cubiiu Soldier. Gonornl Itlos DomundH Hln Dismissal. Manzanlllo, Oct. 31. The visit of Gen eral Leonard Wood, governor of the military department of Santiago, has been instrumental In bringing all the elements among the Cubans to the front. No fewer than 2,000 Insurgents, of whom COO are officers, want olllces, and their clamor amounts almost to a demand. There are two leading factions, one headed by General Jesus Itabl and the other by General Itlos. At present most of tho offices are held by representa tives of the Rabl faction, including the mayoralty and the custom house In spectorships. General Wood, in order to pacify the Rlos faction, has given them six positions on the rural pulice force and turned over to one of tlu-ir people the lighthouse at Cape Cruz, to gether with several other minor ap pointments. But neither party is sat isfied, each thinking that it ought to have all the olllces. General Rlos does not dare express his opinion publicly of General Rabl, hut he feels that this Is his district, as he has had the nomi nal charge of It for three years, and that It ought to belong to him, so far as appointments of Cubans to ofllce un concerned, and all the more so because he represents General Calixto Garcia Tho majority of the Insurgents here have no money and go about living from hand to moutji and wonderlnrr what will happen next. Armed men are not allowed rations. As the Cu bans will not disband, and will not work, nothing remains for them but to strut about the city, with marheto and revolvers. Some of them are near ly naked, others appear In long leggcl patent leather boots with silver spurs carrying superbly wrought Toledo ma chetes. A few wear Imaculate white suits nnd panama hats. These are for the most part the New York contingent each man now a veritable bombastcs furloso. Except when he Is on board the gun boat Hist, which brought him hero General Wood Is besieged by the.'p seekers for office. Among the Inter views he has had was one with Gen eral Rlos. who wanted the mayor of Manzanlllo, one of Rabl's faction, dis missed and his own man appointed to the mayoralty. General Wood askvl on what grounds the dismissal could b sustained. He said: "Is not the mayor a competent officer? Has he not an ex cellent reputation? Did he not serve bravely and effectively throughout tlm entire war? To all this General Rlos replied In the affirmative, but he insisted that hi' own nominee was entitled to the po sition because he was a Rlos man. Tho Interests of the city and the locality were apparently minor considerations In the mind of the Cuban commander. But this appears to be the case every where among the Cuban Insurgents General Wood and Colonel Pottlt re gard the outlook as rather discour aging. Still they hope that some means may soon be found to break up the Cuban army. The members of the rank and file arc anxious to go to work, but the lenders refuse to allow them to do so, and the men do not dare desert, as they would certainly be shot If captured. General Wood Is hoping that the other towns he will visit In hla trip around the province will not present the same vexatious conditions as pre vail here, where the Cuban problem Is presented In a very different form, the most difficult he has yet encounter ed. It was necessary to send a detach ment of the Fourth Immune regiment under a sergeant to the Rigney planta tion In order to compel the armed Cu bans to allow men to work there. The undertaking, however, proved success ful, and 200 men are now regularly em ployed. The latest advices from Santa Cruz del Sur, the meeting place of the Cu ban assembly, do not report the ar rival there of General Maximo Gomez, but thero are persistent rumors that the friends of Gomez, who are dele gates to the assembly, will endeavor to embarrass General Callxto Garcia and his supporters. Lieutenant "ioung and the officers of the Hist have been most enthusiastical ly welcomed heie by the Cubans, who are grateful for the help many times extended to them. The gallant little boat during the war was as much an object of love to the Cubans along the coast as of fear to the Spaniards. She was quite as well known to both par ties as the New York city hall Is to the resldelits of the metropolis. An Iiifnriiinl Culiliiot Meutlnu;. Washington, Oct. 31. An Informal session of the cabinet was held last night at the White House. The presi dent embraced the opportunity nf forded by the presence of several mem bcrs of the cabinet to discuss with them their forthcoming annual rcputts. The peace negotiations at Paris were referred to, but not seriously consid ered, it Is understood. This statement Is borne out by the fact that Secretary of State Hay was not a party to the conference. It is snld authoritatively that no new developments In the I'm I situation have arisen during Hie pa.-i 3G hours.
