Everything seems to move in the same regular way, but very little varia tion in the life and duty in camp. When Uo "roll in" at. laps we are almost sure what the morrow will bring as fur as duly is concerned. About 5.W the first sergeant's words "get up'' float through the air and although beds are not what could be called sof', yet one lias the de sire to stay just a few moments longer, but his word is law. Then cfllnes the regular work. I'ick up the touts, hang out the blaukuts, "fall in'' for roll -call, then "fall in'' for mess at b.M. Those who are selected for that very pleasant duly of two hours on and four hours off, "fall in'' for guard mount at and at 7 there is one more "fall in" for morn ing drill which is usually a company drill and lasts until 'J. Ill), l'roin then until 12 our time is our own. Some of us have that "tired feeling," so take u nap, while others busy themselves reading, writing or wandering about the park. At 12 we "fall in" in for dinner, and of lale it has been well worth falling in for, after dinner we have i.ntil 0.15 to do as we like. Then comes afternoon drill which is batallion or regimental drill and lasts until o. At 0 we "fall in" for supper. To-night it, was boiled cabbage and potatoes, bread and coffee. At fi.2o conies another "fall in," This time every man must answer his name or lose a day's pay, 52 cents. After this we have until 9.0o to ourselves, when we "fall in" for the last time for tattoo roll-call and at 9.15 all are in bed and the lights out, another day gone. You sec we have jus! a few "fall ins" but at the same time we have a good share, of the day lo ourselves, in fact we have considerable more time than the other reirimenls. This evening at 5.15 we had a little extra dress parade, it being the first we have had since our arrival. For some reason the practice march which we were to have tomorrow and Saturday has been postponed until next week.

The third district Kepublican convention was held today. Hon. E. C. llurleigli was ro nomiiialed for Congress. Vcv West Tnnn 2R The most au thentic and reliable news yet obtained of the true state of affairs in Havana was today furnished by a British sub ject who left Havana on the British cruiser Talbot and arrived here yester day. He says a reign of terror exists at the Cuban capital. Captain General Blanco has Issued a proclamation an nouncing that any one daring to ex press an unfavorable opinion of or sus pected of being: dissatisfied with the present policy of the government will be summarily Phot without trial or In vestigation. This proclamation, it ap pears, caused dissatisfaction among the members of the orden publico, or Ha vana police force, who threatened to revolt If full rations were not served orjt to tfm. Serious trouble was ex pected, ae the orden publico la a nu merous and well armed body of men. The result la that today the orden pub lico patrols the city, and Its members are themselves policed, the Spanish In fantry and artillery soldiers mounting guard over them at every corner. Famine, it seems, is imminent, nnd the stories of the arrival of supplies at Havana via Hataliano are pronounceu to be untrue. The narrator thinks Ha vana cannot possibly hold out six weeks lunger. The city is pronounced to bo panic stricken, its inhabitants expertlnc; every moment to be bom barded by the American fleet, as they reallise thnt Captain General Blanco's attitude releases the United States from the obligation of giving the customary bombardment notice. Hints are daily expected at Havana, afl the troops are suffering from hun ger, nnd the volunteers are seeing their wivfs nnd children dying of want. Un der such conditions the captain general cannot much longer keep the military forces In check, and a rebellion Is likely to devastate Havana before the city Is captured by the Americans. Captain General Blanco admits that Uo niiuutlnn Is rtesnerate. He recog nizes, it Is pointed out, his Inability to control his troops, goaded by hunger, much longer, and he is reported to have Raid that he will never leave Ha vana alive, as he Is prepared to take his own life when the outbreak occurs. Food C'unflscRteil. Senor Galban Hio, a prominent Span ish merchant, the refugee continues in his statement, had 5,000 bags of flour hidden at Guentados, a Buburb of Ha vana, and was retailing it to the public, when General Arolas, the military gov ernor of Havana, was Informed that Senor Galban's trucks had traces of fronh flimr unon them. Consequently he caused the vehicles to be followed and eventually seized and confiscated all the flour belonging to the merchant, which was distributed among tha raven- Referring to the strength of the Span ish fnreps. the British subject says thero are 120,000 men under arms at Havana, but, He adds, the great majority of them n readv to surrender rather than die tf rumi'nr In conclusion, the former resident of Havana says he credits the report that the gunners of Mono Castle and at oth er Rnnntsh batteries were taken from foreign warships, and he says the con suls, Including the British consul, am i,-., n.- Kminlsh svmtiathizers. Vice Con sul Arastegel, he continues, is a Span iard by birth and a reporter for 1m lAieha, (he mouthpiece of the govern ment. Mr. Alexander Gollan, the Brit ish consul, he further remarks, gave a dinner on the queen s birthday, at w hich all the guests were Spaniards, and threo British subjects, prominent socially and financially at Havana, were, it is al Limui r..li,unlcil liv Mr. Gollan's orders to the forecastle of the Talbot when sho left Havana because they were Cuban sympathizers, while all the other pas sengers were given cabin accommoda tion. The latter included a Spanish offi cer, Colonel Metulez, who was formerly the censor at Havana. It is said that as a result of the en ergetic protests of the Kngllshmen to the British foreign ntllce and to the gov ernor of Jamaica the Talbot will Hhnrtly return to Havana with Mr. Gollan's successor.
