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.

"We believe the loyal people are
taking up arms for the government
faster than the insurgents are increas
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

rooms where he believes they will be
better suited and will use his judg

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.
