The head quarters of the Cuban legislation In In this city was the center of Interest to a number of callcrH, who had come to express to Scnor Quesadu their sor row at the death or ucnorai Maceo, and to ouer their sympathy, and in somecases help for the Cubans. These callers Included a number of congress men, and two senator", whose names the Cuban representative declined to : reveal, who told him of their desire to I see some act Ion by congress that would fix of assistance tn the Insurgents. Cubans have enough men and lead ers to gain the cause lor which they arc fighting. They can avail them- sches of 00,000 men, and more if neces sary, but what they need is aims and ammunitlon,iud medicine for the sick and wounded. He 6ays offers of assistance from abroad have been received. The Paris agent of the junta says that not only the Cubans,but the French people, af ter hearing of the assassination and Ideath of Maceo.are collecting all they can to send an expcndlllon to be called the "Expedition of General Maceo."

It happened, however, that In passing the Spanish column, com-1 manded by Major Ciruledi. Maceo ' mistook the force of guerrillas under Peral for Sanches' vanguard, and found himself among them before he discovered his mistake. At the first volley, from the Spanish, Maceo fell wounded. The Insurgent, taken by surprise, commenced a general fire as they retreated, and abandoned Maceo in a dying condition. Colonel Feljoo has had an arrange ment at Campo Florida, near Havana, with the concentrated forces of the insurgents, which were with Maceo at the time he was killed, and which are now following the leaders, Agulrre, Castillo, Cardenas,Gallo and Lozo and which number 1300 horsemen Colonel Fcijoo again met these forces at Tum baquet, where he inlllcted a loss of 18 killed, their wounded being carried off.

A special to the Commercial Tribune from Key West Fla , says: Advices from Havana state that La Lucha and other Spanish papers are quite bitter over the story sent I out regarding Maceo's death, and deny It emphatically. Palace ofllclals also deny it, and it Is stated that General Weyler will deny it over his own signature. More lighting Is reported In the suburbs and the Insurgent forces re ported as numbering several thousand. The .work of entrenching Is being pushed to the utmost, and many pieces of new artillery have been mounted.

There was a great meetlne at the city hall in the interest of the freedom of Cuba. Two thousand representative men and a hundred women were present. An drew Jackson Houston, a son of the hero of San Jacinto, presided, and made a characteristic speech. Ad dresses were also made by Chas Worth and H. C. Stevenson, and the follow lng resolutions were adopted: "That this meeting voices the unan imous sentiment of Texas In declar ing that Spanish domination In Cuba should be at once ended.' The second resolution embodied the resolution introduced in the senate on the 10th by Senator Mills, and heart ily Indorses It. -The third resolution reads: "That Texans stand ready to honor any draft made upon them by con gress and the president for men and material to end the bloody, cruel and barbarous reign of the Spaniards in Cuba, and erect her into a free Ainer ican state." The resolutions were adopted. DECLINE To Enter Republican Caucus. Silver Advocates Ignore the Call of Their Party, WAsmNbTON,Dec,14.-SIx silver sen ators practically declared themselves out of the Republican caucus and now occupy a position of armed neutral ity toward their former associates and tho legislatho pollcles,they may de clare. Senator Teller chief of the six, Is still absent from tho city, but the other five- Dubois, Mantle, Canuon, Pcttlgrew and Squlnn-actcd under his advice and suggestion to vote for a protective measure, thus making a majority, they would not bo restrained by any feeling of party loyj alty, and could demand anything they waited In tho way of silver on a threat of defeating theblll. Tho Republicans would then bo placed In about tho same situation as the Dem ocrats were In tho Senate when the Wilson bill was hung up by tho neck. The Democrats then had forty-four Senators out of eighty-five. Hill noti fied them they could nut count on his vote. This reduced them to forty three Just enough to pass their bill This placed It In the power of any ono or two men to do fn.it the inn:inrn If 1 they were not given what they wanted.

The company start for the coast about 35 strong and expects to be con veyed from some point near Galveston to the island. Will Go Afoot. Denver, Dec. 14. It is claimed by leaders in the movement to send troops from Colorado to light for Cu ban independence that more than 1000 names have already been en rolled John McAndrew, middle-of-the-road populist candidate for attorney-gen. eral at the recent election, has been chosen commander, with the title of colonel. In reference to their plan, McAndrew said: "The volunteers will not leave Den. ver in small bodies and by stealth, as was orriginally broposed. Neither are they likely to go to the Gulf coast on railroad trails. Instead, they will move overland, either on foot or on horseback, picking up tributary armies along the line of march, until upon arriving In Floiida, they will have swelled to snch a mighty hpst that the United States authorities will not care or dare to interfere with their embarkation for Cuba." The Cowardly Deed, CiNdNNATi,Dec. 14. A Commercial Tribune from Jacksonville, Fla., says: J A.Huau, agent of the Cuban Junta In this city, received a long letter Saturday noon fronvhls confidential correspondent In Havana giving tho details of the assassination, top foul for the clyllized nations to tolerate. Yes," said Iluau. " Maceo Is dead, but Cuba will live long. The death nfnnnne man can ciumiiuc yi.iB snlrlt of the brave, spirit patriots of Cuba, wno are gallantly for liberty." OASWOBXA. KM K7i'jfis mS of the fighting Ssfts- eaiu the stiver senators. He declared that while he was as radical as ovor on the silver question, ho must not bo understood as haying abandoned any other prlncles he may havc.advocated which Republicans In common with him advocated. Jlo was now as much a protectionist as ho eyer was. It Is worthy of note, though, that the Republicans hopo to concllllate Messrs. Cannon and Mantle and get them back in the fold. The action of the bix Republican sliver Senatois who bolted the St. Louis Convention In refusing "to enter the caucus opens up an Interest ing question as to tho probable at titude of the Democratic gold Sena tora who repudiated Mr. Bryan and the Chicago platform. Tliero is no reasonable doubt whatever that Sena tors Palmer, Vilas, Gray, Caffrey, Smith andlllll would, If lnfltcd, par ticipate In the councils of their party, but there is a decided feeling on the part of some of tho more aggressive silver Democrats against extending the hand of party fellowship to their erring brethern. No caucus of tho Democratic members of the Senate has yet been called, but there will bo a loud protest agalpst the "Senatorial McKlnlcy Aid Society" when ono Is called. If taken in at all the gold Senators will probably bo compelled to enter a probationary period by their acts will they bo judged. The bitterest feeling Is shown by tho regular. Democratic Senators to ward Senators Palmer, Hill' VUa ahd Caffrey, and even If they are al lowed to participate In the council of their party they will be shown scant conrtesy and their advice will not bo sought at any time. The gold Democrats arc taking the matter philosophically, so far as out ward Indications go, but they realize that their lot U a hard one. Tbero is an Idea, however, that when tho tariff Is on a .softer feeling will pre vail. It seems an International Monetary Commission bill can bo passed this winter If tho Republicans aro in earn est about It, but It will be bo shaped by the silver senators that definite results from the International confer ence must bo had before the campaign of 1808 opens. If tho silver Republican bolters aro not to act with the regular Republi cans at all, it is a matter of greater lmportaBCO than Its mere effect on legislation at the present session. It will Involve leglnlatlon In tho next congress seriously. If the Republi cans clef.t senators In both North Carolina and Kentucky they will have but forty-four men In tho senate, if six bolters stand out against them, It will take forty-five, with tho vote of tho vice-president, to control the senate. With tho bolters acting against them they will not bo able to reorganize the senate, nor adopt any legislation without assistance outside their party. On the straight silver question, If presented without any complications, there will be forty-eight Bllver votes, according to tho present outlook. There Is little probability, however, that the question will be permitted to come up in that way. The most 6erlous complication is as tolthe tariff.
