Tba Government's Kma of lllamli.g the
CnlUd atatai for Its Failures Will
Not Much Longer Answer tba Purpose
Madrid, Aug. 10. Trouble of a seri
ous nature i. being fomented in Spain,
particularly in the province of Valen
cia, by agents of tbe Cuban insurgent.
The minister of tbe interior, Senor Cos
gayon, yesterday replying to a question
in the chamber of deputies admitted
that riota bad occurred in Valencia,
caused by tbe friends of tbe Cuban In
surgent, wbo hoped thereby to prevent
tbe departure of reinforcement of
troop, for Cuba.
Hitherto the popular demonstration,
have been attributed to protest against
imposing new taxes, made neoessary
by the financial strain tbe government
ba been subjected to, through carrying
on tbe campaign against the insurgent
In Cuba, but while the government i
only willing to admit that tie riot
bave benn instigated by tbe agents of
the Cuban revolutionists, It is generally
adimtted that the root of the trouble is
much deeper and that it is being nour
ished by a natural feeling of alarm and
dismay at tbe apparent utter inability
of the government to cope with the
situation in Cuba.
That tbe large Spanish army in Cuba
must be still further heavily reinforced
is looked upon bere a. being a confes
sion of weakness on tbe part of the
administration aud a. an admission of
tbe growing strength of the Cubans.
In addition, many letter, have been re
ceived in different part of Spain by
the relative of the Spanith soldiery
serving with tbe army in Cuba, and
tbey tell such terrible tale, of sickness,
privation, incompetency and miaman
agement, to say nothing of lack of pay,
that a dangeroua feeling againat the
government bas arisen, and is gaining
strength day by day. Under these cir
cumstances, agent of tho Cubans do
not bave muoh difficulty in carrying
out their plan of causing popular out
breaks. They steadily fan the flame of
discontent by pointing to the apparent
ly unnecessary hardships which the
Spanish troop, in Cuba are oompelled
The republican, also are taking ad
vantage of the situation to push their
propaganda, and the combined move
ment, are making more headway with
the masses than the government will
idniit, although it 1 already betraying
symptoms of alarm and bas sent strin
gent instructions to tbe prefects to
luppres. promptly and effectually
lemonstration. which occur in their
ilBtricts, and to bave no heaitation in
sailing out the military for support.
A number of conflict, between rioter,
ind the police aud soldiers have already
occurred, shot, bave been exchauged,
ieveral person, bave been wounded on
Doth aide., and a number of arrest,
have been made. This the revolution
ists hope will serve to call attention to
their cause aud enlist in their behalf
the sympathy of the people. The road,
in Valencia are being patroled by the
gen d'arme., troops are pursuing armed
bauda of revolutionists in the moun
tainous districts of the Barue province,
and further trouble is apprehended.
Madrid np to the present ha. beeu
quiet, but sign, are uot wanting that
the spirit of discontent ia abroad, and
that the effort of the government to
gain support by trying to throw the
blame for everything 'upou the United
State, the chief bugaboo of Spanish
politicians, will not much longer avail.
In a factory near the city of Valencia
the authorities have discovered a quan
tity of anna and ammunition, and simi
lar store are believed to be iu exist
ence in different parts of the province.
The arm referred to are known to have
been smuggled iuto Spaiu quito, re
cently, and are of foreign manufac
ture, showing thoir shipment to bo
part of the plan of campaign being con
ducted by the Cubans in Spaiu.
The Spanish officials, as usual, are
blaming the Uuited States for the
trouble, in this oouutry, basing their
assertion upon the fact that among the
leaders of the recent riots was Dr. Ber
nardo Toledo, aaid to be an American
citizen, whose brother is in command
of a force of Cuban insurgents. It ia
claimed that money, arms aud ammuni
tion, were served out to the rioter,
from the bouse which he occupied, aud
a series of spying is said to have result
ed in the discovery of letters from the
Uuited States, Cuba and the Argen
tine Republio, showing that the out
breaks here bave beeu planned by the
leaders of the Cuban insurgents, and
that the movement is widest read and
capable of assuming serious propor
tions. Heath of Mrs. Annette llleks Lord.
