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
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

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
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.
