Nu Yokk, March 18. Among the
cabin pMKetiK"rs who arrived today on
the Ward line etcamer fk-guranca, from
Havana, were several prominent Cohan
planter, who were forced they aay,
to flee the country to evctpe outrage a
perpetrated upon their persona and
property by the Kovernmnnt troop in
the affected dixtrietR of Cuba. One of
them, now a citizen of the United States,
Rtated that in Mutanras, in the heart of
the aflucted diatricHt, liin home was ran
Racked by the Spanish trooi, and his
family subjected to great indignity and
humiliation. For five daya he waited a
chance to flee the country, and finally
succeeded In eluding the vigilance of the
government officials, and reached Ha
vana, here he appealed to the United
States consul, who adviaed him to leave
the country He said :
"Theie are now noiue 5000 or 0000
well-armed and determined rebels in the
vicinity of Suitlago de Cuba, in the ex
treme eastern part of the inland. These
men are heart and soul in the canne.and
have been recruited from the towns of
Manzanillo, Santiago de Cuba, Holguin
and Guantanmo. They are under the
command of General Mato and General
Guillermo Moncada, If these troops, who
are now moving toward Bayatno in large
numbers, ever succeed in rousing the
planters of the province of Puerto Prin
cipe to revolution, 'he war will last for
years. There are 8O00 regular troops in
Cuba, and 8500 regulars are en route in
three ships from 8pain. Besides these,
the government has 50,000 volunteers
now in Cuba. In the eastern part of the
island the rebels are supreme, they are
well, ruled, well armed, and reason dic
tates their every movement. Tltey are
not hurling their cause, but growing
This passenger's statement was cor
roborated by several fellow-passengers,
but the officers of the whip declare that
Havana is quiet, and to the best of their
knowledge, no trouble in the eastern
part of the island exists. This is ex
plained by the Cuban refugees by the fact
that the government has full charge of
all wires anl news channels, and that it
has forbidden the press of Havana to
publish the news of the uprising. An
other pacsenger on the Seguranca de
clared that he had heard of the Allianca
outrage in Havana, and alvt positively
stated I hat he had heard prominent
Spanish officials declare ttiat the Span-
iards were only waiting a chance to sink;
an American merchantman, as they be
lieve that the revolutionists were being
supplied with amis from the United
States. This man added that he had
heard that rifles, to the number of thous
ands, were being shipped daily from
Florida ports in little fishing smacks,
bound to different ports in Cuba. He
also said Hint he expected to hear daily
of a wholesale slaughter of these fishing
folk, if a Spanish man-of-war should run
Madrid, March 18 An official dis
patch from Havana says that General
La Chambre has left Manila with a force
of cavalry and infantry. He has gone
in the direction of Yucaybamo. Gen
eral Garrick has garrisoned Haire and
has gone in pursuit of the rebels.
Frar aa Attack by Bebeli.
Havana. March 18. The troops sta
tioned on several sugar plantations in
the Manzanillo district are apprehensive
of an attack from the rebel band now
near Campechuela. General Garrick is
now at Baire, in command of the troops
of the district.
Kky Wkst, Fla., March 18. The
latest news from Cuba is that the gov
ernment has captured a steamer with
arms and ammunition at Havana, which
was'to go to Santiago de Cuba. At San
tiago several titles were captured, hidden
away in the field. Dolores Aledo. a Cu
ban girl, has been confined in prison for
aiding in the concealment of the fire
arms at San Nicolas, state of Havana.
A lieutenant of volunteers and an owner
of a cafe were also imprisoned for their
connection with this affair.

Washington, March 18. Consul
General Williams has cabled the state
department that General Sanguilli's trial
has, in accordance with the treaty stip
ulations, been transferred from military
to civil tribunals. Sangtiilli has been
under arrest, charged with participation
in the rebellion by the Spanish authori
ties, who were about to try him by court'
martial, when Consul General Williams
Intervened Sangtiilli, it is claimed, Is

Jacksonvii.i.k, Fla., March 18 The
Cubans here held a meeting tonight to
consider the situation in Cuba, and de
cide what thev can do to aid the cause of
the revolt. The hopes of the Cuban
sympathizers are rising rapidly, and
their spirit is becoming steadily higher.

KociiKSTKa, N. Y. March 10. Susan
B. Anthony, who attended the trial of
two wayward girls, argued strongly in
favor of sentencing the young men in
whose company they were when arrested,
as it would more fully equalize justice,
contending that men were more to blame
than the girls.
Tha Oaase Easily Queued.
Bostos, March 19. A chambermaid
at the Adams house diacovered a guest,
who registered as Miss M. C. Morton,
inhaling chloroform. The girl took the
sponge away, and called a physician, who
found;the woman iu bed. She asked if
chloroform always killed The doctor
said "No." Suddenly a shot was beard
under the bedclothes. The woman put
a bullet into her heart while the doctor
was standing beside her. She left no
clue to the caue or her identity.
Toe BpaaUh Crotsar'i Captain Explains.
Havana, March 18. The commander
of the Spanish cruiser Condede Vanadito
reports that on March 8, while cruising
off the eastern coast of the island, be
sighted a steamer heading for Maisi point.
The steamer's course was to the north
east. The cruiser hoisted her flag and the
steamer replied by raising the English
The cruiser signaled the steamer to
stop, but without effect, as the steamer
proceeded at full speed. The cruiser
first fired two blank, then two solid shots.
The commander says that lie did not
desire to hit the steamer, but merely to
caue her to heave to.
He asserts that the steamer was but
one mile and a half off the Cuban coast
when the firing occurred. The authorities
here have ordered a full inquiry to be
made into the commander's acts.
Judging from Captain Croeaman's
story, nobody can doubt but that the
steamer in question was the Allianca,
which was fired on by the Spanish
cruiser on March 8 -
Allianca Bound For Colon.
Nsw Yore, March 20. The steamship
Allianca, which was fired upon by the
Spanish gunboat, sailed for Colon this
afternoon. The report that she carried
rifles and munitious of war was confirmed
by agents of the line. The fact of her
doing so, they explained, was not re
markable or in any way sensational.
The company acts as a carrier of arms
to the Columbian government on nearly
every trip of its vessels. This is a per
fectly legitimate trade and violates no
JnitiSei tha Cmlier'i Action.
Kky West, Fla., March 20. La Un
ion Constitutional, the semi-official news
paper at Havana, reviews the alegations
in the Allianca case, and opines that if
that vessel was really fired upon, the
Spanish commander was fully justified
It assumes that there was something
suspeciotis about the appearance or
movements of the vessel, and that when
the Spanish cruiser proposed to examine
her she ran away, and it thereupon fired
after her. A part of the newspaper's
assumption is ttiat the steamer did not
show her colors when called upon to
The article then recites the achieve
ments of the Spanish navy and proceeds :
"Let it be known that our navy of to
day is the same as that of Lapanto,
Trafalgar and Callao. It is the same
that the Austrian Admiral Tegesthoff
pointed out to his officers to be imitated
before sinking the Italian fleet at Lissa.
They are of the same race and blood ol
those who fought and fell before Sail
Sebastan on ships that were unpro
tected; the same who at Pugaluualon
and Melilla punished the Moors of Me
daden and lviffe for their insults; the
same that on board the Alcedo and Santa
Maria defied and conquered the tem
pests of the ocean, and the same that
during the late naval review received
universal admiration. Finely, they the
same men that on sea and on land are
"It would be well that the United
States should bear this in mind so that
the prestage of that nation may not suf
fer in the contentions that may arise
through adventurers and traitors who
make war on Spain and her noble sons,
and let that nation remember that the
laws of neutrality were made for nations
that knew how to respect them."
Benator Fryo'i Opisioa,
Washiooton, March 20. Senator
Frye when asked today what he thought
of the prospect of an amicable settlement
of the Allianca difficulty with Spain, re
plied: "Unfortunately it looks as if
Spain would make the required apology.
I hoped Spain would assume such a bel
ligerent tone that it would be necessary
for the United States to go over and take
posession of Cuba. We certainly ought
to have that island to round up our pos
sessions, and if we cannot buy it, I, for
one, should like to have an oportunity
to acquire it bv conquest."
Inasmuch as Frye is a member of the
senate committee on foreign relations,
his utterances possess considerable sig
nificance, indicating the early revival of
efforts to acquire Cuba.

she having left the Morroco toast for
Spain and it now appears that she foun

The Reina Regente carried a crew of

to have perished as not a single sur

been found that could be indentified as

Deputy Diaz Moreau, formerly an offi
cer in the Spanish navy, in the cham
ber of deputies, March 14, read a state
ment of the former commander of the
Reina Regente, in which the witer de
scribed the cruiser as unable to weather
a heavy storm, owing to the increased
weight of her armament. Admiral Ber
auger said the overweight of the cruiser's
deck guns was rectified two years ago by
his orders, when he was minister of the
In Cadii and Cartagena, where most
of the crew belonged, there has been
great anxiety and excitement from the
moment the cruiser was reported mis
sing. The Reina Regente, about two years
j ago, went to New York as one of the
Spanish squadron which escorted across
the Atlantic the Columbus caravels.
The vessel was launched in 18S7, and

The wrecked cruiser was 320 feet long,

20 feet 5 inches. She was propelled by
twin screws. Her protected deck was
44' inches thick on the slopes, her con
ning tower bad 6 inches of armor and
funnel 3 inches thick. Her aruinment
consisted of four9-inch Hontoria guns,
one on each side forward of the central

middle pair in recess porta and 15 rapid

with five torpedo tubes.
Itowfoundland Gomes High.
Ottawa, Ont., March 20. It is stated
here that an effort is being made in New-'
foundland to add enormously to the de
mands of the colony when the terms of
its admission to the Dominion are con
sidered. The latest proposition is that
Canada should tunnel the Straits of Belle
Isle in order to give the island all rail
connection with Canada. This, it is
urged, would eoufer special advantage
upon Canada, reducing the sea voyage to
England by one-third, and rendering it
possible to convey passengers from Mon
treal to Liverpool in 105 hours. Where
it is proposed the tunnel shall be built
the straits are about miles wide,
and the land formation is said to be fa
vorable to the undertaking. Another
scheme which is of more modest propor
tions is that the island railway be com
pleted to Belle Isle, and that a
ferry be maintained on the straits to
make connection with the railway to
It is considered, however, as likely
that the success of the coming con
ference will be endangered by the attempt
to commit Canada to the tunnel scheme,
though the question of maintaining
water communication will undonbtedly
