"1 •.Axfttv?, IP* - "' -4R #*!-•' in' W> THE COEUR D'ALENE PR&SS, THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 23, 1906 PRICE FIVE CENT INSURGENTS CAPTURE CITY Government Is Slow While Rev olution Spreads. Havana, Aug. 23.—The insurgents in the province of P&nar del Rio cap tured their first city here yesterday. At nine o'clock the force led by Pino Guelrear, an ex-oongressman and an influential own, one who was thought to be many miles westward, and sundry other insugent bands at tacked San Luis, which is situated on the railroad, about 10 miles west of Pinar del Rio city. A shrap and de cisive engagement followed, during which a number of men were killed or woundded. The town was defend ed by leas than 50 rural guards, who surrendered to the insurgents and are held as prisoners. The insurgent forces are in possession of the rail road station and of the town, which is resuming normal conditions. By the capture of San Luis, whioh has about 5000 inhabitants the insurgents have obtained an important base for future operations. General Rodriguez, commander of the rural guards, after relating the incidents of the day, said: "Ton can tell the American people that Cuba is entirely competent to cope with the insurrection. The flood of rumors in all directions about the organization of insurrec tionary bands in great numbers are not borne out by our reports, or, so far as can be learned, by the facts. The result of the encounter at San Luis is still not known definitely, but it is known we inflicted some losses on the enemy in that district. The much talked of movement in Santa Clara province has not been encoun tered, and no insurrectionists have been seen there by our forces. "We have equipped and sent out in various directions 300 volunteers under competent officers. We have plenty of rifles and ammunition for all who enlist at present, and more has been ordered from the United States. We have thousands of old but servicable guns.

SANDP 0 INT SCHOOLS Hold Half Day Sessions—Power for Superintendent 8andpoint, Idaho, Aug, 23. -Tbs school board has decided to bold Vi f day sessions until the new building is completed.

At the latwr hour tbs afternoon school will JUL ims of the crowded "We believe the loyal people are taking up arms for the government faster than the insurgents are increas ing." While the foregoing is typical of utterances of government officials, there are evidences of a threatening increased number of the insurrec tionists. In the province of Santa Clara the disaffection is widespread, and in the province of Havana a great many people are in sympathy with the insurgents. In some ca whole communities appear to have been carried away by the recrudes cence of insurrectionary terms. The principal event yesterday was the fighting at San Luis. The reports to the c omman der of the rural guards are to this effect: The bands of Guerrara and others, aggregating 400 men, concentrated this morning in the vicinity of San Luis. Seventy rural guards under command of Ma Jar Laurent were to attack the insur gents from the east and the command under Liententant Azruy were to at tack Jrom the west. Azcuy arrived first and got into an ill timed engage ment with a far superior detachment, with the result that he was forced to retreat hastily to San Luis, pursued by a portion of the enemy. The rur al guards took refuge in their quar ters and Guerrera's men remained in possession of the town. One hundred recruits were started weetwrd ou board a special train, but it is not likely that they will be per mitted to reach San Luis. The insurrection appears to be growing, but the loyalists of the towns claim that they will be able to resist the movement. A telegram t» the government stated that Major Laurent, with his deta chm ent of rural guards, fouight Guerrara and hiB 300 men for three hours, completely defeating him, killing or wounding many of his fol lowers and taking three prisoners. condition of the school buildings and inability to secure other quarters. The board by a unanimous vote de cided to give Superintendent Irion full power ta act in. school govern ment. He will change teachers to rooms where he believes they will be better suited and will use his judg ment in other matters. Architect Williams presented a bill for 8500, part payment of the con tract for drawing plans and specifica tions. The bill was ordered paid, but the warrant will be held until the board receives the money from the state for the sale of the school bonds. Labor Sunday.
