ASK ANNEXATION Besftelt Spaniards WonM Sttfl the War to Save Cuba From Destruction. Efforts Being Made to Sound Merchants and Planters the Subject. Asserted That the United States Alone Can Keep Order on Hie Island. MATAKZAS, Cuba, via Key West, Oct. 19.—The business element here, in Ha vana and elsewhere, seems to have ar rived at the conclusion that the Madrid government cannot end the war on the basis of autonomy to Cuba as there are not enough loyalists among the auton omists to hold public office. At least that is the claim the conservative Span iards make. In addition, the latter ex press the belief that the autonomists, even if they were placed in power, would not be able to preserve peace and protect life and property from the law less elements. In view of this condi tion of affairs a number of important merchants and sugar planters of Spanish origin, in conjunction with several Cubans of prominence, have been hold ing secret meetings and corresponding with people in various parts of the island with the object of ascertaining She views of the Commercial and Planting Community in Pinar del Bio, Havana, Matanzas and Santa Clara provinces, as to the future for Cuba most likely to further their interests and those of the island in general. It is expected that the ma jority of the replies will be favorable to annexation of Cuba to the United States, as the Washington government alone, apparently, is able to guarantee peace in Cuba and the protection of life and property. As soon as it is ascer tained that the sentiment of the persons appealed to are in favor of annexa tion, a committee will be sent to the United States with instructions to lay the case of Cuba clearly before the busi ness men of prominence in the United States and ask the latter to unite with the business men of Cuba in a petition to the Washington government asking the United States, in view of the fail ore of the Conservatives To 8uppreas the Insnrreetlon by force of arms and pointing out the impossibility of the Liberals ending the war by establishing an autonomous form of government, to bring about the annexation of Cuba to the United States. The plan of Senor Sagasta, the new Spanish premier, to give autonomy to Cuba, far from giving satisfaction here, has greatly increased the feeling of discontent. The autonomist purty, it is pointed out, exists only in name, the actual majority of the autonomists being in the insurgent ranks and with the exception, possibly, of Senor Mon tero and a few other prominent auton omists, the masses of that party are in sympathy with the insurgents. Con sequently it will be seen the Spanish government, which has consulted Senor Montero on the subject, is finding great difficulty in obtaining even the sug gestion of names of autonomists to fill offices under an autonomist form of government.

PROGRESS IS SLOW. The 8a|Mta Cabinet Negotiating With Autonomists. MADRID, Oct. 19.—El Imparcial says that the negotiations between the gov ernment and the chief of the Cuban Autonomist party have not exceeded the expected results.
