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

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

MADRID, Oct. 19.—El Imparcial says
that the negotiations between the gov

rebellion by force of arms."
The decrease in the issue of bank

Deaths From Yellow Jack at New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 19.—Eighteen
newcases and six deaths was 1 o'clock
report of the board of health. The
previous day's report was so favorable
that there was some hope that the rec

however, seems to have made a good
start during the morning and the total
number of deaths since the fever began
is now close to a hundred. However,
the number of recoveries continues to
be large and several hundred people
who have had the fever are now
and considered to be immune.
