Cowardly Violation of Civilized I'd.
aice Turned Over to Mnrqulg
Ahninada by Weyler.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 12.—
Justo Carrillo. a well known Cuban of
this city, brother of the Cuban general
Carrillo, has received Che following let
ter from a trustworthy correspondent
in Havana confirming the reports of
the death of Antonio Maceo, and show
ing that he was killed by treachery:
Havana, Dae. 9. —Our brave general, Antonio
Maceo, and the greater part of his staff have
been murdered by the Spaniards, the Spanish
major, Cirujeda, acting the part of assassin,
with Dr. -Maximo Zertucha aa.an" assistant in
the horrible drama. Convinced that, notwith
standing his enormous I army, i he could do
nothing against our gallant leader, who had
so repeatedly defeated the Spanish generals
in Pinar del Rio, Weyler conceived the idea
of appeasing his beastly ' instincts by cold
blooded murder; and, making the best of
the secret relations between Dr. Zertuncha
and the Marquis of Ahumada, he planned
with the latter his hellish scheme.
Weyler took the field, and, in his absence,
Ahamada proposed, through Zertucha, a con
ference with Maceo, to take place at a cer
tain point in the province of Havana, with
the view of arranging plans for the cessation
of hostilities. The basis was to be Cuba's
independence and a monetary indemnity to
Spain, together with certain advantages that
should be agreed upon for Spanish commerce
and Spanish capital invested there. To carry
out the plan, the agreement was that orders
should be given to the detachments of troops,
stationed on the trocha in 'the section between
Mariel and Guanajay,- to allow _ Maeeo, with
his staff, to pass the military line unmolested.
Time was required to mature these" arrange
ments and to give them all the appearance
of truth, Ahumada feigned that before acting
he must make' them known to Weyler for
his previous approval. This explains the
sudden arrival, of Weyler in Havana, and
his prompt return to Pinar del Rio. •
The conditions and place of the meeting
having been agreed upon, Maceo crossed the
trocha over the road to Guanajay- without
being mole-ted by. the fonts, but as soon as
he arrived at the place decided upon, he' and
his party were greeted with a tremendous
volley from the troops under Maj. Cirujeda,
who lay conveniently in ambush. Most of the
officers of his staff fell with Gen. Maceo.
Zertucha Is alive because he was aware of
the scheme and remained in.-the rear. The
Spaniards know where the bodies are, but are
bent on feigning ignorance, to blot out the
vestiges of the crime.
Havana and all Spain are rejoicing becausa,
in their stupidity, . they hope that the war
may end with the death of this leader. Far
from it. The spirit of the Cubanrs has grown
more ardent and today, they are resolved to
make every sacrifice before surrendering their
arms to their relentless "tyrants. In this
very province of Havana.V in which our
army is least numerous . and . has the least
means of defense, the Cubans are operating
with greater and greater activity, and not
a day passes - that we do . not hear in this
city the firing on Guanabaeoa; The Span
iards may treacherously murder sone of our
patriots, but no earthly power can annihilate
tre spirit of liberty floating, now as ever,
over the Cpban people. "
■ Joaquin Fortune pointed out yester
day the following facts, which, in hts
opinion, corroborate the statements in
the foregoing letter and indicate that
Maceo is really dead:
First—La Lucha published an article last
Saturday in which it was stated that on the
previous day Maj. Cirujeda had had an en
gagement with an insurgent force and had
killed 32 Cubans, not named, at precisely
the place in which Gen. Maceo was murdered.
Second—The first dispatch sent from Hav
ana reporting Maceo's death, which was re
ceived on Tuesday, stated that Mal. Ciruieda
had previous knowledge of the horse that
Gen. Maceo was to ride. How did he re
quire that knowledge?. ; "
i Third— publicly .- attributes the
glory of the event to the Marquis of Ahum
ada, who has not; been -away from Havana,
Why should not the glory be given exclusive
ly to Maj. Cirujeda, who had the good for
tune, if the encounter was an accident, to
come unexpectedly on Maceo's party.
; Fourth—From the first, even before "con
vincing proofs had been offered, such assur
ance was expressed at the palace as indicated
a preconcerted plan.
Fifth—Zertucha's _ previous conduct, It now
appears, not altogether . free from blemish.
Sixth—A manifest contradiction appears be
tween what is said by the authorities in
Havana and what the Spanish minister of
foreign affairs announces in his confirmatory
telegram to Minister De Lome at Washing
ten. The Havara authorities distinctly say
they have been unable to secure the body
of Maceo, while the telegram from Madrid
states that the body has been identified. This
vei-sion was transmitted to Madrid to give
the home government full assurance of the
fact, while it was later thought fit to con
ceal the truth from the. press in Havana in
order to conceal the dastardly crime.
Maceo's« Deatli | Admitted and ? Cow
;-~: : " * ardly Murder Charged; '. '-r^'' -
NEW YORK; Dec. 12.—Estrada Pal
ma, made the following statement to
■ rv'ght: ;_ ■".-. [_' r ;- y, r \- --> - : ; : \ -: .i.< -, ; ;'■ ■
■ I have'received a telegram from niy agents
tn Jacksonville affirming the news that Gen.
- Maceo; and his staff' came into conflict with
Ahumada, Weyler's; lieutenant,' and were
murdered. Dr. Zertucha was present. The
news does not surprise me, because the first
reports of Gen. Maceo's death were so con
tradictory . that I 1 saw , mystery In J them. •; I
. was Inclined to believe that the news was
false, but that.if Gen. Maceo'had really been
killed it was through ■ the assassin's \ knife. 7
It seems now that he' has been" murdered.".
--; Gen. Weylef, ori^addressing" the crowd from
tho balcony of-his.palace. in.Havana. seemed
anxious to shun the responsibility of Maceo's
death. That was : apparent- when ho declared
that | the "victory" • belonged. to Ahumada.
It is possible that ; his conscience begun ', to
feel the pangs of remorse. Xhis very.. act
of the Spanish : governor proves the strength
of .'. the ' revolution.: 1 They cannot crush it . by
open - warfare. . They must resort" to the as
sassin's 1 knife.: ' They '- dared not ■' face Maceo,
so they had to stab'hini in the back. --'•■-,- «
; After making the foregoing- state
ment Dr. Palma pondered awhile and
then exclaimed in the bitterness of
anguish: "Oh, where is the chivalry
of which Spain so proudly boasts? The
cowards; % the cowards."- . --i '
7: It^was .announced at the junta that a
■ thorough investigation: is already on
foot.V Every, detail that: can be ob
tainable will be .iaid before: the i world."
so| that the whole truth may be known. ;
Suspicion, itt Is saM at • the junta-, -
points to s Dr. Zertucha. the personal
physician of the lamented Maceo. He
had his fullest confidence and pretend-"<
ed to be an ardent , revolutionist. For
over a year, it is known, Dr. Zertucha
has been persuading Maceo to break
through the trocha, and has time : and
again offered to : show, him : how easily ;
It could be done. Maceo finally, acced
ed, the members of the junta declare,
and the , knife met him and his <3e
- voted staff. . • ••.-.
The surrender of Dr. Zertucha, the
only member of the staff who escaped
death, his ready affirmation of the
story of the pitched battle, and his an
xiety to go to Spain, it is said, are
damaging 6lg-ns. : . ■■:-■?,• :*?-i~~/-'.:~
"Discouraged," exclaimed one of the
Cubans when asked by the .reporter
if such would be the tendency of the
death of the leader on the minds of
the ' Cubans, "Discouraged? No. The
blow, though great, will bear fruit,
profitable to the cause. It will arouse
public sentiment. . It will show the
Spanish method of warfare. When the
truth is spread among the soldiers in
the field, they will be spurred on by
the spirit of revenge . and fight with
redoubled fury."
The junta makes the additional
statement that they have been in
formed that Dr. ZertuOha's solicita
tions were seconded by a letter from
Ahumada inviting Maceo to a conf
ence. A letter from the Marquis,
Maceo thought, was a pledge of honor,
and he hastened to meet the foe who
wished to speak .with . him, perhaps,
as an accredited "agent of the Spanish
government and to bring about a
peaceful termination of the bloody con
Cnltan Leader Killed Uiider a Flag
of Truce. '
CINCINNATI, 0., Dec. 12.— Com
ir.ercial-Tribune special from Jackson
ville, Fla., says: J. A. Huau, agent of
the Cuban junta in this city, received a
lcng letter this afternoon frotm his con
fidential correspondent in Havana, giv
ing full details of the assassination
"too foul for civilized nations of earth
to tolerate."
"Yes." said Huau, "Maceo is dead,
but Cuba will live long. The death of
no one man can crush the brave spirit
of the patriots of Cuba who are tight
ing gallantly for liberty." .
The letter to Mr. Huau gives vir
tually the same account of the ambus
cade and death of Maceo, as already
given. Mr. Huau said tonight:
"The Spaniards say that they; do not
i know- where Maceo's body is. They
I know full well. They have buried: it
! to cover their treachery to a degree and
I will exhume it soon and say, 'Ah, here
! is the body of Maceo.' From today
| Cuba will fight harder than ever be
| fore. This will be a. sad day for Spain.
j I do not know who will succeed Maceo,
but I think it will be Col.Rios. Rivera,
a brave and intelligent soldier."
The letter goes on to say that as
Maceo crossed. the trocha, going to the
place appointed for the meeting, he
passed the Spanish sentinels under
Spanish protection and they presented
arms in his honor. Going forward
seme four miles from the trocha, Maceo
.and his staff, numbering thirty-five
men and officers, came to a hillside
thickly * studded with small pines and
underbrush. Here a Spanish outpost
was observed. Maceo sent forward his
flag, and in a few moments jhe was
! signaled to advance. As the party did
so, hundreds of Spanish soldiers arose
out of the underbrush, completely sur
rounding the party. Maj. Cirujeda
gajloped up and demanded , Maceo's
surrender.' - V - ,
"Never!" shouted the intrepld: Cuban
leader, drawing his sword, as he saw
that he was entrapped. .
"Forward, my men, death to the cow
j ards," said Cirujeda. At this, the Span
ish soldiers poured in a fire of bullets.
I Maoeo falling at the first .-; fire _ and
| young Gomez next. The fire was con-
J tinucd until every man was killed, ex
cept Dr. Zertucha, whom the Cubans
say, is a traitor. The bodies of Maceo .
and young Gomez were then tied to
the tails of the soldiers' "horses and
dragged over the field so as to disfigure
them, as the Spaniards did not wish to
have them discovered and identified at
first. It is stated that thi3 murder-leak

Scope of Freedom Embodied inthe
Reform Similar to That Enjoyed

WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 21.—President
Cleveland's sugegstlon, in r his recent
message, that Spain grant a large
measure \of home rule to Cuba jas ' a
means of terminating the present f con
flict there, isr expected ;to v bring about
early and favorable action by Spain in
that direction, provided Ifi is apparent
that - her power in Cuba( is supreme,
and already the terms of^Spain's plans
of home rule'for the : island have been
practically determined. They are more
comprehensive than the 1 proposition of
home rule suggested in : the ? speech of
the queen regent ;to the last \ Spanish
cortes, and embodied in a draft of re
forms submitted to Secretary Olney
some months ago. .: .: -.'^v- . • .
They will preserve the essential fea-'
tures of that plan, but wfll more fully
carry out the spirit of home • rule' and
self-government. - The most essential
addition to the former plan will be that
giving to Cuba enlarged, if ; not com
plete control,: over the framing of i her
tariff laws, . which,- owing to the extent
of trade with the United' States, is of
first importance to the people of the
island. In a general way, the , scope of
the, home rule plan is claimed, to
somewhat similar to that which , Can
ada has,. as a colony Great Britain, 1
the Canadian parliament f making \ its I
own tariff, irrespective of the revenue j
policy ■ of Great Britain. V The new
measure of home rule,'according to its
advocates, is in pursuance of a'■ policy
entertained by the Spanish government ;
f or. i many months, ' which 1 would I have
been put into execution ;; before ; the J
present time had not the insurrection
created obstacles. - - . ".. /; : :
It now develops that one of the main
purposes of "the return of Gen. Campos
to Spain was to formulate measures
of home rule based " upon his acquain
tance with the island. It was found,
however, that the inability to secure
an accurate census of 1, the inhabitants
of the island entitled to vote under the
proposed reforms interfered with the
full development of the plan. It has
proceeded with such speed as was pos
sible during the disturbed condition of
Cuba, and in view, of the position taken
in Mr. Cleveland's message on :; the
question of home rule for Cuba, it will
be brought to a mature and final state
at an early day. -; Its .main details are
known by officials. in "Washington. Of
these, the wide power;glven to Cuba to
make her own tariff laws is regarded as
the most essential. ' I" 3 ;.
- As the proposed plan of reform will
be an enlargement and extension of the
home rule - propositicii-. of some months
ago, the latter becomes : important as
indicating the general lines of the plan.
This v/as drawn in > due; form :of law."
The feature of home rule was secured
under article 2, of 'the document, pro^
viding for a council of-administration;
or Ct^an legislaturej^The. council was'
to consist of Cubans, of them to
;be appointed by the *#rown and fifteen
i. elected Iby the people /or* terms of four
years each. , The cojjnc.il was given
power over. "the management of the
> whole island,: of public works, i post and
telegraphs, railways navigation,
agriculture, manufactures, trade, immi
gration ~ and —colonizatloh,. public . in
struction, 7 charities anil health depart-
I ment," these powers >.td be exercised
under the . supervision of the Spanish
government.;': '*"'■"! :':*'f---- |. i ~;'•.- -: : - '-.
On the question of framing the tariff,
the article specified'-that the Cuban i
council should have advisory power,
.submitting an annual."^budget * during ;
the month of March %td the minister
of the colonies at- Madrid. While : the
details of the ext§H§i6n cannot be giv
en, yet in substance,- : .change is said '
to_give Cuba complete,»instead'of I ad
visory power, on J this subject. - : v •
As a whole, the proposed plan is ex
pected to be up to the suggestions of
home rule j made ' in-ithe president's | re
cent message. From the fact that Spain
has contemplated it^for some time, the
plan ■; will ■ not be. open :to 'the sugges

South Dakota Mnddle Heard -in: the
' Supreme ;' Court. ■
PIERRE, S. . D., I>ec. 12.—The su
preme court gave a hearing today in the
case for a writ of : mandamus, the state
'board of canvassers being called on to
show cause ! why • they do not issue < cer
tificates of ! election -to the Republican
electors and; candidates for . - congress.
The attorneys for. the defense presented
a demurrer, - which |j was - argued this
afternoon. The main question was
heard this afternoon. The contention
of the defense is that the act of issu
ance of certificates is m ot: a duty of
the canvassing board, but a duty im
posed on the governor as the head of
a co-ordiinate branch of the state gov
eminent,' and that a mandamus will not
lie in i such cases..-' This contention is
denied by the plaintiff and the position
is taken that the announcement of the
result ": is a ■ notice fqti who ' is elected,
. and the issuance of certificates is mere
ly a ministerial act, and that a manda
mus wfll lie to compel the perform
ance of such act. . ~ '■ ;"
The attorneys for the Populists last
evening I appeared before - the supreme
■ court in behalf of E. J. Kelly, one of
their congressmen, and secured an order
to .show cause ; why a peremptory writ

Declines to Commit Himself Or His
Followers to Any Definite Line of
WASHINGTON, Dec. 12.—The Re
publican members of the ways and
means committee held another confer
ence this morning. It was thought yes
terday that the Democratic members
of the committee would be present this
morning, and would be formally noti
fied of the proposition to proceed with
the preparation of the new tariff bill,
and to give hearings to the various in
dustries affected. It was decided, how
ever, to postpone the meeting of the
full committee until next week. Gen.
Wheeler, of Alabama, one of the Dem
ocratic members of the committee, to
day, speaking of the reported inten
tions of the Republicans to gTve hear
ings, coupled with the report that the
new bill was to be a "moderate pro
tective measure," said:
"I do not doubt it is the present pur
pose of the Republican members to
frame a 'moderate bill,' but if hear
ings are accorded to those interested in
high schedules, I feel safe in predict
ing that an extreme protection meas
ure will be the outcome. Those who
appear will ask for the highest possi
ble schedules, they will demand them on
the ground that the result of the elec
tion pledged the party to adequate pro
tection to American industries. The
consumers will not be heard. The re
sult will be, that no matter how anx
ous, or honest the Republicans may be
in their efforts to frame a 'moderate
bill,' they will yield first here and
then there to the demand for higher
schedules, and once having yielded,
they will no more be able to stem the
tide than they would to stop the on
rush of Niagara. I predict that the
bill which emerges from the ways and
means committee will be in many re
spects more extreme than the act of
The conference of the Republican
members lasted about two and a half
hours, but nothing was definitely decid
ed upon. They discussed at considera
ble length the question of the hear
ings to be given by the full commit
tee. The general opinion was that a
fixed, programme for hearings on the
several schedules should be arranged,
beginning on Dec. 28. As these hear
ings will be before the full commit
tee, it was decided to wait until Mon
day when the Democrats will be pres
ent before fixing the dates for special
interests to appear. It is probable that
certain days of the week will be des
ignated. The question of whether cer
tain schedules will be left as they are
or restored without arguments to the
rates of the McKinley law will be mat
ter for future consideration.
In case it is decided to allow certain
schedules to stand, they will not be in
cluded in the programme of hearings,
although the committee probably will
give hearings to the representatives of
such industries if they are insisted \
upon. It is difficult to fix a hard and
fast rule in such matters. It is the
general view of the Republican mem
bers that the hearings should be com
pleted as early as possible, and one of
the prominent members today expressed
the opinion that they could be com
pleted in two weeks. The Democratic
members have, as yet, held no confer
ence, but they may ask that certain
time be allowed them to summon wit
nesses "in rebuttal."
The question of the date for taking
the congressional holiday recess was
also discussed at the conference, but
no date was decided upon. Dates from
Friday, the 18th, to Wednesday, the
23d, were suggested, the recess to last
until the Monday after the New Year.
Senator Teller, of Colorado, was at
the capitol today for the first time this
session. Several silver men were in
conference with him during the day,
the matters und >r discussion relating
largely to the election of senators in
states where the silver men have con
trol, but in which no one party has a
majority. It Is believed that Senator
Teller's influence in these states will
have great weight, and different candi
dates are seeking the senator's influ
Senator Teller would not be inter
viewed on his future course nor upon
his action upon measures which may
or may not come before congress. He
would not, he said, outline a policy
for himself, or those who believe with
him, preferring to meet matters as
they developed. Referring to tariff
legislation in the next senate, Senator
Teller modestly said he was not elected
to the next senate as yet. When ask
ed regarding the late Republican cau
cus, he said he would not have attend
ed it had he been in the city. As-ked
what he thought of the international
bimetallic proposition, put forward by
his colleague, Senator Wolcott, Mr.
Teller remarked that he hoped that it
would be successful, but added that
he knew it would not be, as the nations
with whom the attempt was to be
made would not consent to bimetal
lism. The senator said that he took
that position when he was a mem
ber of the committee on resolutions
at St. Louis, and added that if the
gold men thought there was any hope

recently effected union of three of the i
Central America states, 1 and. although. !
. Senor ' Rodriguez, the,.-; regularly - ac- L
credited representative of "the Greater I
Republic of Central A-merioa," has
been in Washington for, almost , a fort- f
night, no arrangements ' have been
made for his presentation to President '[•;
Cleveland. It is not understood thac t,
any discourtesy is intended in -; this J>
delay, nor any lack of interest in the V
newly formed union, for the president
has I cherished! the idea that the con- •
solidation of the smaller. Central Amer- j' ;
ica republics would tend to the benefit}
of their citizens: But so far the state'
department has > not: been -. assured ;a« i
to the exact combination; that has been, !
. effected-between them, and besides, v
regards it essential 1. that the United k)
States by a recognition of :; this new •;
republic, shall not abandon any priv
ileges enjoyed under the separate trea-» ;
ties it had with the -individual;states, '
nor sacrifice the claims for indemnl- j
ties already preferred. When the <Se- j

Maj. Baldwin, the Chippewa Indian
commissioner, is trying, to have tha!
sale , of pine on . the Red Lake reserva- 1
.tion, which was made by the govern-,
ment last July, set aside. He seems to!
have caught the ear of Secretary Fran
cis and.has taken up the cudgel where
he dropped it after several unsuccess- ■
ful . efforts r to convince % Hoke ■. Smith
that everything was wrong on the res- ' 1
ervation. It v/as through charges pre
ferred 'by : Baldwin that twenty-nine I
estimators; were discharged, and, al- j
' though it was given out at the time ;
- that their dismissal , was rendered nee- | [
essary from lack of funds, it has been j
• learned": that there is : about * $30,000 ;
still available. Maj. Baldwin makes the r
:same claim, that the. appointment of i
estimators was not in accordance with :
the act of 1889, relating to the sale of !
pine lands on.the reservation, and that :
the sale made is therefore illegal.
