IS TOO BIG A JOB Dispatch From Madrid Says Paci fication of Cuba Is Regarded Impossible, Except as th« Resnlt of a Su preme Effort, Involving Complete Blockade. Significant Interview With Gen eral Weyler Published at Madrid. LONDON, March 20— A dtapatch to the Pall Mall CJa/.ette from Madrid says that the pacification of Cuba is now looked upon as being impossible, except as the result of a supreme effort, involving the sending of large re-en forcementa to that island, and inati toting a complete blockade of its coasts. WEYLER MAY NOT RESIGN. Falil at Mnlrlil Tlmt lie Hti the Confl rioiirr 4r tl»e (joTprninent MADIUI, March 20.—It is pemi-offici ally denied here that the statement at tributed to (.ienernl Wejrler, the cap tain general of Cuba, in an interview cabled here from Havana, suggesting the possibility of his resigning, really points to the probability of his relin (in slnng his dunnaml. It is further tuuted that he has th" support of both the government and the public. Ill the interview above mentioned the captain general is quoted as ex pressing great surprise at the charges made against him in the United btates, "in view of his great prudence pending th® settlement of the question of bellig erency." General W ey.er is also cred itod with having said that the attitude of aongress stops the normal develop ment of the war. Continuing, the in terview places General Weyler on rec ord ua saying that numbers of persons are join ng the insurgents From All 1'arla of Cuba ud even from the capital, Havana, ecause they hope they will be recog nized as belligerents. The Spanish soldiers, the captain general is said to have added, are fighting heroically and it is impossible to ask theui to do more. In conclusion, General Weyler is said to have stated that he is confident of tiio eventual success of the Spanish cause, but the '"contradictory demands prudence and extreme measures, combined with the difficulties arising from the question of belligerency ami lie elections," may compel him to re sign.

Her Reinnnstranoe A«alnat the Nile Ex pedition Taken Too Kerionsljr* PARIH, March 20 —The French gov ernment gifes eVuleiice that the an nouncement made by M. Berthelot of the remonstrance he had offered against the Egyptian campaign np the Kile in a conversation with the Mar quis of Dufl'erin has been taken much more seriously than they were pre pared for. The outbreak of approval from the French press and people, and the popular clamor for even more de cis.ve measures of protest, seem to have alarmed the government and awakened an apprehension that they are being precipitated into a position of hostility to the plan of Great Britain, backed by the approval of the dreibund, which might entail the gravest consequences. As a consequence steps have been taken to dull a little the seemingly sharp edge of the communication made to the British ambassador by M. Ber thelot, the minister of foreign affairs. A Note of ExplMo^tlon. The following explanation, with its distinct tone of deprecation, is made semi-oflficially: "Yesterday's note was merely a short and rapidly drafted summary of the objections which France found it nec essary to formulate in v.ew of the un expected and sudden decision of Great Britain. "France also iji tended unequivocally to intimate that she did not intend to ignore the matter. "The interview between M. Berthe lot and the Marquis of Dufferin was of the friendliest character. It was pointed out that it was incumbent U]HU the guardians of the Egyptian fund to ascertain the necessity for an action entailing large outlays, and that it was preferable that the attitude to be taken should be defined at the outset, instead of b. ing left in doubt."

Three bandits boarded the train at Selma, two climb ing on the rear of the baggage car, and the other one on the tender. As the train pulled out of Goshen, the rob ber who had betrayed his companions, left the train without their knowing it, rushed into the telegraph office and told the operator to teU the sheriff and party the robbers had changed plans. The sheriff hastened back Jo meet the train and boarded the train at Tagus. The robbers did not intend to make their presence known until the train had pulled out from tho station, but the officers saw the men and opened fire. The bandits returned the volley and Sheriff Daggert was shot through the lungs, sustaining a wound that will probably prove fatal. Constable Reed was shot in the shoulder. McCole, who is believed to have been one of the Dalton gang, wasN killed. The other robber escaped. A Few Arrests Made. Officers have arrested Lovern, the keeper of a notorious deadfall, where Assessor Frank Coffee was killed and also arrested Charles Ardell, a bar keeper. John Haynes, member of the Salvation Army, supposed to be a member of the gang, was arrested at his ranch, eight miles distant. The name of tho confederate who betrayed s companions is Obi Brittain. Other members of the gang are yet uncap tured. Constable Reed's wound is slight, the ball passing through the fleshy part of the left arm near the shoulder. Under sheriff Daggertt is seriously hurt, a bullet passing.through his lung. ORGIE ON THE OCEAN. Returning Cattlemen Steal Scotch Whit* kjr and Knjoy Theinaelves. NEW YORK, March 20.—One of the greatest orgies that ever took place on the Atlantic, ended with the arrival at New York of the Atlantic transport steamer Mollie, from Loudon.

As soon as the ship reached the open sea the fuu began. The men were soon all fighting drunk, and they Ran Thins* to Suit Themselves. Sailors who were seut below to quell the disturbance were thrown out, and it became evident it was as much as life was worth to attempt to check the infuriated men. Bottles, furniture, crockery and all portable decorations were thrown around the cabin, and finally the men were locked below decks and allowed to continue their debauch by themselves. The men were arrested at the pier. As direct proof that they stole the whisky could not be furnished, they were allowed to go free, much to the disgust of the ship's officers.
