Report to This Effect Reaches Santl
mro and Excites Cubans.
Santiago de Cuba, Sept. 14. An un
contradicted report-has been received
by General Lawton saying General
Maximo Gomez, the insurgent com
mander In chief, has tendered h)s resig.
nation of the command of the Cuban
army to the Cuban government ot Ca
maguey and that it has been accepted.
Gomez, It appears, has been protesting
against the Cuban government's yield
ing the control of the affairs of the Is
land to the Americans, and his explana
tion for resigning was his disapproval
of "passive submission to conditions
tending to the practical discrediting and
retirement of the Cuban republic as
such and the establishing of the abso
lute dominion of the United States."
The Cubans at Santiago were much
excited by the report, and there was an
animated scene at the San Carlos club
when the matter was discussed. The
report was disbelieved by many, who
say that General Gomez's resignation at
this time Is utterly Improbable. Others,
however, say Gomez resents the putt'ng
of the Cuban army under the authority
of the American generals and claims the
Cubans should resist, even by force of
arms If necessary.
Generals Cobreco, Castillo, Pedro, Pe
rez and other Insurgent leaders have
turned over their commands to General
Lawton. General Perez has 8,000 men
in the vicinity of Guantanamo, which he
will disband this week by order of Gen
eral Castillo. There Is now a general
desire on the part of the Cuban army to
disband, as the Insurgents have leavned
that the question of their back pay will
not be considered by'the Americans.
Lieutenant Colonel Rowen and Cap
tain Parker, accompanied by Lieutenant
Colonel Carlos Garcia, son dt General
Garcia, and two other Cuban officers,
have arrived here on horseback from
Glbara, on the north coast. Colonel
Rowen was sent here by Gpneral Miles
from Porto Rico. He will take observa
tions in Cuba, geographical, climatic
and military, for the government. He
was fitted out with guides, horses and
provisions by the Cuban commander,
Ferla, at Glbara and visited Holguln,
which Is ea'riscned by 12,000 Spaniard.!
under General Luque. Oood health g n
erally prevails among both Cubans and
Spaniards In the northern part of tha
Island. The Spaniards entertained Colo

the satisfaction of the American people,
but I have given It little or no thought.
Chlcairo Wants New Government.
Chicago, Sept. 14. The city council
has adopted a resolution providing fol
a commission of nine members to pre.
pare an entirely- new form of govern
ment for the city ot Chicago. It is tha
Initial step for a consolidation of tht
town, city and county governments.
The resolution, after reciting the evils
growing out of the present Justice court
system, makes a general complaint ol
the present charter of Chicago as being
behind the needs of the city. Six ol
the members of the commission are 1 1

ANIMALS THAT COUNTr"
Instances That Prove Their Possession of
the Computing Faculty.
Sevetal years ago there lived in Cin
cinnati a mule which was employed by
street railway company in hauling
cars np a steep incline, mis animai
was hitched in front of the regular
team and unhitched as soon as the car
arrived at the top of the hill. It made
a certain number of trips in the fore
noon (I have forgotten the number, but
will say 50 for the sake of convenience)
and a like number in tho afternoon,
resting for an hour at noon. As soon as
the mule completed its flftioth trip it
marched away to its stable without or
ders from its driver.
To show that it was not influenced
by the sound of the factory whistles and
bells the following remarkable action
on the part of this animal is vouched
for by the superintendent of the hue,
who gave me theso data : On a certain
occasion, during a musical testival, tms
mule was transferred to the night shift,
and the very instant it completed its
fiftieth trip it started for the stables, it
took the combined efforts of several
men to make it return to its duty. At
night there were no bells or whistles to
inform the creature that "quitting
time" had come. It had counted the
trips, and having finished its full quota
of 50 it thought that the time for rest
and food had arrived.
Some monkeys give unmistakable evi
dences of the possession by thorn of the
computing faculty. In 1889 I made tho
acquaintance of a very intelligent chim
panzee which could count as high as
three. That this was not a trick sug
gested by sonsual impulses I had amplo
opportunity of satisfying myself. The
owner of the animal would leave the
room, no one being present but myself,
and when I would call for two marbles
or one marble or three marbles, as the
case might bo, the monkey would grave
ly hand over tho required number. Ko
mancs mentions an ape which could
count three, tho material used in his
