hy Spanish soldiers. The massacre
occurred Thursday uear the town of
SaiivTosedolas Lava*, Havana province.
A detachment of Spanish soldiers sur
prised six insurgents who, however,
made their escape, wh\ch angered the
Spaniards, and they began to raid the
mouses in the neighborhood, alleging
hat the inhabitants were in sympathy
»vith the rebels. The Spaniards went
o the estate of Frederick L. Craycroft,
vho came here from Indiana about
hree years ago. Some of the soldiers en
ered the house and two of them seized
Mr?. Craycroft and assaulted her. The
'lusband, in desperation, rushed to her
lid, but was struck down by a sword in
h« hands of an officer. Two horrible
L-ashes were made in his back, and his
right arm was nearly severed. The
Spaniards looted the house, took $850
In cash and then raided other houses on
She estate. They burned eight build
ings and shot and killed 19 inmates,
jour of whom were women. Craycroft,
jvhen he recovered sufficiently, wrote

Hughes of Lindsay, Canada, president
of the Hughes Car Ventilating com

ber of the Canad an parliament from
Ontario, is in the city. Major Hughes
is deeply interested in the school ques
tion in Mauitoba, over which the Con
servatives and Liberals have been
wrangling for some tiino past, and has
considerable to say concerning the set
tlement, which, according to the press
dispatches, was agreed upon
,a few days
"The settlement of the prhool ques
tion in Manitoba is not satisfactory, as
has been indicated in the press dis
patches," he sa:d. 'The Conservatives,
who were defeated at the last general
election, I am confident, would have
settled the (^u^tion much more justly

The ('on^rvatives took the stand that
the Rojnan Catholics should have the.
right to use their own taxes only, and
should be giveu no government support.
The Liberals grant the right of any
denomination for half an hour religious
instruction at the cloe of school
hovrs. They also grunted a con
cession which permits of text
books printed in both English and
French, and wherever there are HO Ilo
lyun Catholic children in a school dis
trict, no matter if there be twice as
many Protestant children, the Roman
Catholics are to be entitled to have a
Roman Catholic teacher.
"Another point in the settlement of
the school question is this
"The text books are to be entirely re
vised, and that which is objectionable
to the Roman Catholics in history or
literature is to be removed. These are
the terms of the settlement which have
been referred to as highly satisfactory.

Winnipeg, Nov. 10. Archbishop
Langevin, preaching in St. Mary's
church, said the clerical representatives
of the Catholics are growing impatient
at being kept in ignorance of what has
been done, and what is being done re
garding the settlement of the school
controversy. He warned the politicians
if the settlement did not give the Cath
olics their rights according to tho con
stitution the agitation would be renewed
with vigor enough to destroy govern
ments. This means that the hierarchy
will not accept anything less than sep

Bcitat.o, 7. Y., Nov. 10.—A report
reaches here from St. Thomas, f)nt.,
that the schooner Sonora, was wrecked
and five lives lost in Thursday's storm,
off Point Abina. about 10 miles from
Buffalo, on the Canadian shore. Mate
W. Duquette, who claims to have been
the only survivor, carried tl\o news to
St. Thomas. The Sonora was lumber
laden. l»ouud from Wiarton, Out., to
Tonawanda, N. Y.
Mate Duquette's story is that the
Sonora was struck by the galo at 8
o'clock Thursday evening. Her rig
ging, sails and (leckload of green oak
timber were swept away. After a vain
endeavor to regain control of the vessel
the captain decided to abandon her.
The crew all left the vessel in the yawl
except the mate, who preferred to stick
to the schooner. He saw his companions
washed overboard one by one from the
yawl boat and drowned. Duquette
clung to the vessel until abont 4 o'clock
Friday morning.when he drifted ashore
on a hatchway. The vessel soon after
wards went to pieces oira reef off Point
Abino. Duquette says he went to a
farmhouse and the next day tried to
find some trace of the crew but gave
them up for lost. Then he drove here
to take a train for Detroit and notify
Mr. Chamberlain, the owner of the
vessel, of the loss.
Mr. Chamberlain Doubt* It.
Detroit, Nov. 10.—C. A. Chamber
lain, owner of the schooner Sonora,
which has been reported as wrecked in
Lake Erie, has repeatedly asserted that
the vessel has been lying at Tonawanda
unloading lumber. He stated that he
sent a dispatch to the captain at Tona
wanda on Saturday, ordering the vessel
to proceed to Bnffulo, and that ap
parently the message was delivered, as
he has received no notice to the con
The Story Disputed.
Tonawanda, N. Y., Nov. 10.—Tho
story told by Mate Duquette at St.
Thomas about the loss of the sphooner
Sotiora is disputed. The Sonora arrived
here Thursday night from Wiarton,
Ont., loaded with green oak timber,
aud after unloading, cleared Saturday
night all right. Her captain is H.
Serlotis Allegation Made by Surviving
Muskecon, Mich., Nov. 10.—The
schooner Waukesha broke up while
trying to ride out the gale at anchor
near here, and only one survivor of her
crew of seven has been rescued.
The Waukesha is one of the old fleet
of "eanalers," and, true to all tradi
tion, she has taken almost her entire
crew down with her in her last disas
ter. She was owned by F. H. Head of
Chicago, and tfas formerly known as
the Nabob.
Says the Captain Was DiMnk.
During the evening Frank Delach,
the survivor, made affidavit to the ef
fect that there were seven men atxmrd
the Waukesha,Captain Duncan Corbett,
the mate, four seamen and a colored
cook. When they arrived off Muske
gon, Delach said the captain, mate and
some of the sailors were very drunk.
They signalled for a tug, bat showed
no distress signals, and no tag under
these circumstances started oat in the
heavy sea. The captain anchored a
mile aouih of Muskegon harbor. The
craft began leaking badly, but the
captain refused to light the
torch to make known their condition to
the lifesaving crew. The crew donned
life preservers, all hands taking to the
forward rigging. The craft, however,
began sinking rapidly and a sudden
lurch threw some of the men from the
foremast. As part of them clung to the
rigging the main topmast broke off and
fell upon them striking some of them
and sweeping all into the lake. Delach
said he contrived to get together a raft
from the wreckage to which five of the
men hung for a time. They dragged
tne captain with them, but he was to
helplessly drunk to hold on and they
had to dr'^p him- Only Delach reached
shore alive.
