The rioting caused by the anger of the people at the conduct of the Abyiwlnlon campaign , brought to a climax by the defeat of ( he Italian army under General Daratlcrl , was continued last night In nearly every largo city of Italy , although a rain storm cleared the streets of the capital. At Milan a large mob marched through the principal streets , smashing windows right nnd left , yelling execrations on Crlspl and his ministers , nnd calling for the trial and prompt execution of General IJaratlcrl. The rioters made their way to the railroad elation with the Intention of preventing the departure from Milan of the army reserve of that city and neighborhood , belonging to the class of 1872 , but. anticipating trouble , the authorities kept the men In the barracks and sent troops to guard the station. These precautions ' served to Increase the excitement of the mob leaders and nn attempt was made to break Into the depot. A number of sharp encoun ters between the rioters and the Midlers and police followed. The soldiers and carbineers were pelted with stones and the points of the bayonets nnd the swords were used to drive bade the crowds. A number of soldiers and policemen wcro Injured , and scores of rioters were slightly wounded. The disturbances continued until 2 o'clock In thc morning , at which tlmo the troops , at the point of tne bayonet had cleared the railway station and Its neighborhood of rioters and established a cordon of soldiers nbout It , while guarding with strong pickets all thc approaches. The troops' remained on duty all night. MORH QUIET IN ROME. There Is today a marked Improvement In the demeanor of the populace. A proclama tion by the mayor enjoined the Inhabitants of Rome to bo calm and avoid assemblages which would tend to develop riotous demon- Btratloiis. IluslnesB Is proceeding ns usual nnd the only evidences hero ot the recent dis turbances arc the strong additional guards of roldlers on duty about the palace and all public building ? . There was terlous rioting at Parma last night. The municipal buildings were besieged by angry mobs , windows were smashed , there wan a number ot lively fights between the police and tr.ie populace , and the troops were compelled to flro a volley over the heads of the most riotous of the mobs. This dampened th'B ' anger of the rioters , who scattered In all directions , pursued by the carblnerl , who suc ceeded In arresting several ot the leaders of the disturbances. They will be kept prisoners until the popular excitement tnibaldcs. There were n number of meetings of thq different branches of the opposition , but noth ing definite was decided upon , , although a group of membcrs'of the right party passed a resolution demanding the complete nbandon- ' \ mcnt of Erythea , as Its retention would only Involve n waste of money and men. The marquln dl Rudlnl Is now looked upon aa likely to yield to the representations of his friends nnd concent to undertake1 the forma tion of a now cabinet with General Rlcottl as minister of war. The later has already held the portfolio ihrco times , the first In 1870 , again In 1873 and lastly In 1884. General Rlcottl Is credited with having gteatly In creased Ihe efllclsncy of the Ital'nn army by the Introduction of new armaments and reforms of various natures. He woe born In 1822 and resigned his command in 1882 In order to 'have more freedom of action after being , chosen lender of the right party in tucceojion to the late Slgnor Sella. Naturally , Inview of the extensive military operations undertaken by Italy , the minister of war , nt least for HOiugr time to come , will be hardly second In Importance among the Italian ministers , WORSE DISASTER STIL EXPECTED. The Populo Romano this morning refers to the fact that considerable anxiety Is felt for the safety ot thc Italian garrison of Adlgrat , nnd another great disaster Is feared. The trcops there. It Is admitted , have only threa days supply of provisions , and they are known to be surrounded by the Shoan army. Unless promptly relieved Adlgrat must fall , and a further massacre of Italians will fol low. General Daldlsscra , who has relieved General Daratlcrl of thc command of the Italian army In Africa , IB well aware of the desperate situation of the garrison of Adi- grat and in looked upon ap certain to spare no effort to relieve that place. Ilut the ques tion which Is In everybody's mind here If , will thc Italian commander bo able to col- , Icct a Gurtlclcnt' force to accomplUh hit * pur pose , taking Into consideration the de moralized condition of the African troops ? The work of dispatching reinforcements to ' Mnssowah Is being pushed with praiseworthy 'vigor. On board the chartered transports gangs of men relieve each other , PD that the fitting out of these vesrels Is continued day and night. Thc nrmy reserve men of the clara of 1S72 , just called to the colors , will , na soon ns equipped , relieve regiments now doing garrison duty and the soldloro thus rendered available for active service will bo fihlpped to Africa au rapidly as possible. The incoming ministry makes a complete change In the colonial policy of the country as advocated by many prominent men , and It is determined to make peace at any prlco with the Abysslnlans. The Undents of Pisa Invaded the railroad Btntlon hero last evening as a result of a report having been circulated that the ar tillery of the garrison of that place was to bo transferred to Naple ? for shipment to Africa , They marched to the depot , shouting "Down with Crltpl , " "Get w back our sol diers , " "Death to llnratierl , " etc. The local authorities , however , proved equal to the oc casion. A fltrong force of police was sent to the station and the students were dis persed after burning all the copies nbtaln- nblo of the government newspaper organ and smashing a few windows. Among the military men there Is a strong nentlment In favor of pushing the campaign In Africa to the utmost , and even If nccer- wry to call out the anuy reserves and serd 11 ro.000 additional troops to Abyssinia , Ilit ) ' the robor-rnlnded representatives of the ' business community advocate u policy of ' peace , oven If It Is necessary for Italy's ) > rldo to puffer In order to obtain UK-EC ends. * The mnwes , as a rule , are opposed to any h' further rocrlflce of the lives of Italian \tf \ Midlers , and they are In sympathy with those [ A who favor n complete change In the colonial policy of Italy. In thu moanwhllo the financial rltuatlon Is Alarming all thofco who contemplate' It , and this , It ls hoped , may have the effect of U bringing about the adoption of a policy of con- f dilation and economy , The projocttd demonstration at thu capital proved to be Insignificant.

The captain general of Cuba , General Valcrclno Weyler , has Is sued another Important proclamation , of which the following IB a translation : My attention 1ms been drawn to the fre quency with which the civil nnd military authorities nnd the nrmy ofllcers In the country nnd towns proceed to nrrcst citi zens who nre afterward placed at my dis posal to be deported from the Island with out reasonable cause for such measures , nnd having pointed out la my previous cir culars the charges pertaining to war , Juris diction nnd the formalities Tor trials.

Therefore , the authorities nnd nrmy offi cers will so order In every case of nny one who Is nrrested without proofs enough to establish his guilt. Written Information must bo made with nil the facts that can possibly He had through verbal or confi dential Information.

PLEDGE THEIR LOYALTY. On the occasion of a visit which General Weyler paid to the Casino and opera here toJay , the president , Francisco Santos Guz man , In receiving his distinguished visitor , mndo a short address , In the course of which ho said : "I have come In the rame of the Casino to protest against the Injurious ca lumnies of some American senators toward Spain and toward her worthy representa tives of this Island , and at the same time to protest against the resolutions of b bth houses of the United States congress In favor of recognizing ns belligerents hordes of rebels. In so doing they are voting against the rights of our people and with manifest lack of consideration for Spanish loyalty and friendship. We reiterate- our unconditional adhesion to the government of Spain and to the person of her worthy rep- icsentntlve , at whose side we arc and will bo with all wo have and will have. " General Weyler , In reply , thanked the Ca sino for Its loynl sentiments and assured the members that their support would be util ized when needed. Referring to the alleged Injurious "calum nies and Insults of the enemies of Spain and their sympathizers , " the general said he was not astonished at It , nor did It affect him to know they hated und feared him , Dut , hn claimed , all the Imputations made Igalnst him were false , and he Insisted , on the contrary , he had proved hie uprightness by accomplishing happily and efficiently the duties assigned to him. The general also said bo regretted the hostility which some United States senators exhibited toward Spain , and especially , ho explained , as the Spanish authorities on this Island treat citizens of the United States with - zens more- con sideration and assign to them more preroga tives than to any other people. lit spite of this , ho said , hostility was manifest toward Spain. In the meanwhile , continued General Weyler , he hoped President Cleveland would persevere In his attitude in opposition to the resolutions and expressed the satlsfac tion of the authorities at the good faith of the United States in bringing about the oelz- ure ot the Callxto Garcia and Gollazo fili bustering expedition. In conclusion ihe captain general re marked : "There Is no reason , why the good friendship between the two nations should bo altered , and for thnt reason I am trying to follow the example of the Illustrious Can- ova s del Castillo , chief of our government. I recommend to" you all the greatest pru dence under the' circumstances and I prom ise you that , If the necessity arises " , I will oaow every one his post , where "to die If the country requires this extreme sacrifice for her Integrity and honor. " The president of the executive committee at the conclusion of the general's remarks made a short reply , during which he raid : "Wo all agree with 'your Ideao and we all agree to follow your suggestions. " WEYLER HAS NOT RESIGNED. There Is no truth In the report In circu lation that Gcnral Weylor has resigned the position of cnptaln general of the Island of Cuba. In official circles It Is added that , on the contrary , General Weyler possesses the entire confidence of the Spanish government. The Aragon battalion and a detachment of nnrlno Infantry have captured 100 saddle hort'es belonging to the enemy. The same troops at Paso del Palmer captured 170 rifles and three horses. Colonel Galvts yocterday wao engaged near Macagua , province'of Matanzas , with the Insurgent forces of Maximo Gomez , caus.lng considerable loss to the enemy. Maceo is paid to bo moving toward the province of Matanzas. The sentry who was on duty at the Jose Hidil ffirt , near Revlran , In the Holguln district , has been tried for treason in per mitting the Insurgents > to enter the place. Corporal Antonio Medina made a brave re sistance , during which he was wounded. Seven volunteers who composed the garri son of the fort escaped. The Insurgents captured nine rifles nnd accoutrements and a quantity of ammunition. Miceo's return to Matanzas Is sa'd ' here to bo proof that he ban suffered Ion , in addition to being short of ammunition. Derandro Diiarte , a Frenchman and man ager of the Olaylta cjtatc , has been killed by the Insurgents. Glnrn Ilnrton llitx Carte Illniiche.

The only Spanish settlement prior to them w'ns Santo Home do Gunynnn. 3. During the whole period from 1018 to I'M the Dutch hnd uninterrupted posses sion of the entire const line nnd the river Corcntln to llnrlmn. 4. During the same period they hnd ex plored the upper portions of nearly nil the rivers nnd mndc mnny settlements In nd- Jacent districts. fi. Prior to 1723 , there wns no sottlcmeni of Spaniards except Snnto Homo tic Qunrann , C. lletween 1724 nnd 1798 Capuchin mis sions were established southward of the Orinoco nnd gradually extended enstwnri townrd the Dutch territory , the furthercst point occupied by the Spaniards being Tum- moromo , founded nbout 17SS. 7. Hefore 17DC the Dutch hnd settled fnr up the Cuyunl , a Dutch post wna estab lished nenr the Yurunry , nnd the Dutch lint full control of the Cuyunl. 8. Kxcept for the ppttlement of Snnto Homo de Gunynnn nnd their missions , the Spaniards exercised no authority In the territory now In dispute. 9. Great Urltaln , on becoming possessor of the colony , succeeded to all the rights of the Dutch. 10. After 1796 , Great Hrltnln extended her settlements nnd exercised over the terri tory orlglnnlly claimed by the Dutch , nl the rights whereby nntlons usunlly Indl- cnto n clnlm to territory. 11. Neither Spain nor Venezueln , nftcr the latter hnd declared her Independence , nt nny time hnd possession or dominion over the territory In question. 12.

The clnlm of Venezuela that her ter- iltory extends to the Kssiqulbo is based on contentions In no wise supported by fncts nnil cannot be Instilled on nny rensonnblc ground.

As a result of the publication in El Dla that the Spanish mhi- Ister at AVnshlngton had notified the govern ment that President Cleveland would veto a Cuban resolution a statement _ was made today from an authoritative source as to the extent of the information received from the minister at Washington. It shows that he has kept the government fully advised -at nil actual developments , but has not anticipated action In any branch. Up to the' present time the minister has not Informed the gov ernment that tne president will veto the Cuban resolution , nor Is ho Informed , BO far as the government knows , what the future * course of the executive authorities at Wash ington would be. At the same tlmo the ministry has access to the dispatches ic- celved by the news agencies , at Paris , London and Madrid , and t < oinc of these recent dis patches , which have been widely published throughout Europe as Indicating the probable - able course of the administration authorities at Washington , have berne ( lie stntnp of au thenticity nnd have been accepted as seml- ofllclal and authoritative. They have been regarded by officials , as well as by the gen eral public , as correctly forecasting the prob able course of the Washington authorities. To this the Spanish minister at Washington has not added his oinclal advice , nor has he stated that ho has any assurance as ro the future of the Cuban resolutions. Official advices from .Havana show that Mncco has made- bold march to the north , with a view to meeting Callxto Garcia , who was expected to arrive with arms ind Mn- munltlon. .After learning that the Uarcla expedition was a failure Macco was un.iblo to move eastward cr to reach the pouthrrn everglades , and was compelled to mova vc-st into Havana prov'nco It is bellevej that hla purpose was In part a feint to prevent the reinforcements nirlvlng at Havana from carrying out their projectoJ movements.

MERELY SLAUGHTERED UNDER ORDERS Killed HIM PrlNOiUTH , lint So Did Other Ofllcero lit ( lie Army Some I'ccullnrltlvH ot the Aeuuied. ( CopyrlKht , 1SDO , by Preps Publishing Company. ) HAVANA , March G. ( New York World Cablegram Special Telegram. ) In obedience to Instructions from the World I have de voted myself slnco my return to Cuba tea a careful , consclcntlous study of the truth 01 falsity of the charges made against Genera Wcyler by Cuban partisans and circulated In the United States , and feel Justified In reporting that the facts are as follows : General Wcyler obeyed orders In his for mer service In Cuba during a portion ol the ten years' war. Ho then treated pris oners and suspects with extreme rigor , ac cording to the letter of his Instructions. Ho did no more In this respect than other commanders of the Spanish columns here Here the truth of the charges ends. He was always an honorable soldier. Ho dlt' ' not personally Illtrcat women. In those days both sides killed prisoners , the rebels ns freely as the Spaniards. General Weyler does not possess the mag netic personality that Campos docs. Ho Is precise nnd entirely businesslike ; hence docs not attract Individuals to him as some other commanders. To his friends and Intimates he Is genial and engaging. IS A DEVOTED FATHER. The consul general of Great nrltaln , Arthur Golan , at Havana , who was stationed at Manilla during the term of Wcyler ao captain general of Phllllplne Island , Informctl mo that Wcyler's devotion to his children was really touching. He uswl to bring his little daughter to dinner parties at the palace. , I can find no responsible person or publica tion that prepents anything like legal ev idence that satisfies an experienced man ol the world against Weyler on nny other polnl than that ho obeyed military orders toward rebel prisoners. As regards the published reports thnt ex ecutions have taken place since Weylor ar rived they are false In toto. To begin with , Weylcr's Instructions do not permit cruelties. In the second place. , he Is alto gether too smart a man to wish to do or to attempt to do what the Cuban laborantc charge that he has done or will do. The proclamation he Issued after his arrival read strangely to the people In the. United States , but they are not strange In a Latin coun try. In tlmo of warfare the conditions ol the people In almost everything are different from thoseIn * the North American republic. The proclamations Issued yesterday by General Weyler stopping arbitrary arrests of "Innocent peopleIn the country by overzealous - zealous officers , often times the result of personal t'plte , is an example of his fair Intentions. By this order persons shall not bo arrested or otherwise molested as sus pected rebels , without evidence to support the charge. Weyler states he will hold of ficials personally responsible for their con duct , should false arrests be.made. . . As a matter of fact , Weyler Is doing nothing of a more arbitrary nature than good old 'Martinez ' Campos did , .and ho will display the same vigor toward his subordinates who may 111 treat prisoners ao his predecessor In office. The press teems with European cables on the relations between Spain and the United States. It is cabled definitely that negotiations arc going on between Spain and Frnnco for financial as stance from the lat ter , Spain to secure Franco by certain ports In North Africa now controlled by Spain. There Is a great deal of enthusiasm dis played at the clubs and among the higher class merchants over the apparently general sympathy Europe shows for Spain In the present emergency. There Is much truth In the claim that France will render practical sympathy , but there Is a great deal off Jw.il- ness behind the display of sentiment. The debt of Cuba , mostly due to the ten years' rebellion , approaches near $700,000,000. This enormous sum Is secured by Cuba alone. Spain is practically exempt. The greater portion of the debt Is held by France by financial Institutions and widespread among Email holders. Germans hold a.large number of Cuban securities. .France will not qu'etly submit to the loss of tliero hundreds of millions , as would be the remit of the forcible separation of Cuba from Spain. AS "TO SPAIN'S FINANCES. A high official Informed me that the finances of Spain are of too much Importance to France for the latter to ignore the call of the former for assistance. There Is not as much outward Indication of public ex citement , but In conversation bitterness Is shown toward the United States senators who are characterized as blackguards be cause of their abusive language toward Spain. "European wars have bosn caused by far milder language than Senator Sherman used , " raid a Spanish officer. There is no military intelligence of Im portance. Gomez , and Maceo ore both moving qastwnrd. Maceo Is supposed to bo In Ma tanzas pr.ovlnce. Today tbo railway Is open to Matanzas and for a short distance be yond. Rallwayo are opening In Havana prov ince. The line lo Guanajay nnd to Data- bane Is In operation. General skirmishes are reported , but the loss Is so small as to ren der them unyorthy of specification. It is reported that the new consul gen eral has been named in place of Williams , resigned. Whoever comes should be a man of great experience in Spanish laws and customs. When tlin passengers on the steamer Oli vette landed Wednesday , one , whoso name was Ilea , was quietly arrested and Is now conllne.l In Moro castle. Ho stated ho was a correspondent for the World and made other equally Incorrect assertions yesterday. Today a report was circulated that the prisoner wao Sylvester Scovel , who ones sent letters to the World from the Interior of Cuba. The Spanish correspondents all sent tonight their papers In Madrid and elsewhere - whore In Spain reports that It was Scovel who was arrested whllo masquerading under an assumed name. DM Is not an uncommon name In Santiago and Matanzas. The pris oner , who Is a Cuban , probably like a hun dred others holds American citizenship pa pers , and Is accused ot beln-s a spy. Ho Is strictly forbidden to have any communica tion with the outside world. The prisoner Is not Silvester Scovol , has no connection with the World and never has had. WILLIAM SHAW IJOWEN.

The World will print tomorrow the following authentic state- mcnt ot the policy of Spain ns to Cuba and ongress , from Prime Minister Cnnovas. it Is accompanied by n personal message to Joseph Pulitzer , the publisher , from the council ot state , authorizing Its publication. The statement Is ns follows : "MADRID , March C. Wo have ns yet no official notice ot thc Intentions of the Amer ican government , and cannot , therefore , take cognizance- proceed against any of the proceedings of the senate and the house of representatives. Wo have no olllclal notlco of the proceedings nnd speeches In Washing ton the past week. Neither have we sounded the European powers In regard to their In tentions or for support In nny form. All wo have done Is to show to the American gov ernment and to Minister Taylor that wo hnvo cndcavort.il to enforce respect for the Amer ican legation and consulates , repressing so sternly iho disturbances that we have or dered the Madrid , Granada , llnrcclona ami Valencia universities closed , and wo will close all universities , schools and establish ments wliOFo students dare to make demon strations hostile to the United States. Wo will send to prlton and prompt trial all the authors and promoters of such disturbances. We believe they are prompted by the ad vanced republicans. Nothing will bo omitted on our sldf to show our desire to preserve cordial relations with America. I am con vinced thnt wo possess sufficient means to quell any hostile demonstrations. The gov ernment of Spain regrets , and has made all the amends possible , for the manifestation already mcdc of the Indignation which ths speeches nt Washington naturally excited among the ever loyal people of Spain. SITUATION IS DELICATE. "The situation now Is oho of extreme deli cacy. Indeed , I cannot define haw far It In possible for the government of Spain to permit amiable and careful mediation of a foreign power , however honorable and disinterested It may be , without Incurring the grave risk of being accused of sub mitting to outride dictation In the nildut of the civil war. The United States is a great power and until they recognize the object and encourage the alms of thu Insur rectionists In Cuba , they are friendly to Spain. After the recognition of the bcll- ligercnts' In Cuba by the United States , It would be Impossible for the government of Spain to accept the good offices of President Cleveland , or to permil any Interference whatever. Neverthelew-v I still hope some means may bo found by the president to avoid alienating the friendly relations with the United States'which Spain has shown this week that she prizes highly. I am fully alive to the significance nnd the pos sible consequences of the vote of the United States congress tb the rebels' as "well as to Spain In her relations with the United States , and especially In connection with the right of search upttn the high seas and in the matter of prlvatccra and filibustering expeditions. "The only new and seemingly warlike preparations yetfmade by Spnln are made simply with a view of equipping a fleet of war plilps and transatlantic steamers to chase filibusters and to * guard the coasts of Cuba. That Is the solo object In vlow. General Weyler having raid he had enough troops , only the usual reliefs will bo sent to Cuba uniil autumn , and no naval dem onstration ( a contemplated "Tho elections will not Interfere with the action of thc government , as It Intends , to conduct It In a tolerant spirit for all parties , fair representation being arranged for even the West Indian constituencies , nouldcs , In every Internal and International question , the Spaniards have always shown a patriotic spirit. f DO WEYLER AN INJUSTICE. "The misapprehension concerning General AVcylcr'B character and methods originated In a mUstatcmcnt ot facts In his career and of his assignments nnd Instructions. Doth In Cuba , twenty years ago , and In the Phllllplne Islands , slnco then , Wcyler has only carried out the orders of his com mander. Before ho left for Cuba the last time , I baw nnd ppokc to him and npproved hlH views. Consequently hd has simply acted hi harmony with the requirements of this war , In which the Insurgents have not only set at defiance the rules of civil ized warfare , but have violated the pro visions of the treaty of 1705 between Spain and the United States , and of the protocol of 1S77 , respecting the lives and the prop erty of all real and alleged American citi zens In Cuba. I am determined to rnrrr out the administrative political reforms al ready voted by the Cortes as soon ns the pacification of the Island permits , and even such economical tariff reforms as may bo consistent with the Interests of both the colony and thc mother country. "But it Is Impossible to attempt reforms diTlng a civil war or under any foreign pres sure , In the present condition of theIsland. . When Marshal Campos was sent to Cuba aa governor general the government would cer tainly have allowed him to Institute the re forms If ho had deemed them advisable ; but ho soon discovered that It was Impossible to do so. We cannot admit that the xllght- cst ground exists for the recognition of the belligerency of the Cuban Insurgent ? , whoso so-called president , the marquis of Santa Lucia , and the members of his executive council , are nomads , like the rebel bands , tvcr on the move.
