At Havana's Qatcs.
Xkw Youk, March 5. A fpeeial from
Uavnua says :
Nobody has paid much attention to re
ports from the field lately. Washington
and Madrid havo been the solo centers of
interest. Yet, within a few days, Gomez
and Maceohavo achieved other successes
in tho face of strong opposing columns,
which have mado the world wonder how
it can bo drnc.
Genoral Woylor, appraeutly believing
he had driven them to their stronghold
in the everglades of Cienaga do Seapata,
has been hurrying thousands of troops
into Santa Clara by land and sea with
ono purposo of hemming the enemy in at
that point. General Pando, in com
mand in Santa Clara, only waited the ar
rival of these troops tosttiko hard blows.
But Gomez and Macco having left in the
everglade's hospitals all their wounded
and ill, taken cast from their raids m the
western provinces, strengthened their
forces with new troops fresh from Puerto
Principe and San Diego, and then, while
the Spanish battalions weia en route to
catch them, they unexpectedly turned
west again, slipping past all obstructions
with only a few skirmishes.
Now Gomez is iu the heart of Mat
auzas and Maceo is once more almost in
the gates of the capital. Trains hare
been fired on just beyond the city on tho
Matanzas raid and Monday night there
was a sharp skirmish only three miles
beyond the suburb of Jesus del Monte,
a settlement to which Havana horse
cars and omnibuses make regular trips.
There was no official report of the affair
May Appoint A Commission.
Ciiic.uio, March l, A local paper
The report that General Wesley Mer
rit, commander of the department of the
Missouri, has been summoned to Wash
ington for a conference with the presi
dent and his advisers, on a secret mis
sion of importance, is believed by army
men in this city to bo trne. At army
headquarters it is said tlwt President
Cleveland contemplates sending a mili
tary commission to Cuba to examine
into the affairs on the island, and it is
snrmised that General Merritt is to be
intrusted with the leadership of the com
mission. No member of General 3Ierritt's staff,
however, is willing to be quoted in the
matter, as the secrecy that is being ob
served at Washington enjoins silence.
The president, it is said, favors the idea
of a commission to Cuba to report on the
condition of affairs there. He took this
coorso when there was a question of the
trne stato of affair in Hawaii, by send
ing Commissioner Blount there, and he
recently obtained the appointment of
the Venezuela boundary commisjion.
That the president believes in the wis
dom of commissions is further shown by
the fact that he favored the appoint
ment of commiasioners to an internat
ional bimetallic congress to consider the
Besides General Merritt, several oilier
high officers of the army have been sum
moned to Washington. It is also pos
sible that they arc to consult with the
president and secretary of war as to the
best means of mobilizing the United
States troops In the event of war.
It it suggested that ifa 'ingle commis
sioner went to Cuba it would lj a mili
tary man, as his investigation wonld
have to be principally of a military char
acter. It would not surprise those who
regard the sending of a commission as
probable if General Me lit was selected,
He is a great friend of the president.
He is third in rauk in the army, a dis
tinguished soldier, and, moreover,
possesses a judicial temperament.

Adigrat in Danger.
Ro.mi:. March G.Ponolo Romano this
morninir referrs to tho fact that consid
erable anxiety is felt for tho safety of
thu Italian garrison at Adigrat. The
troops thero have only three days' sup
ply of provisions and arc surrounded by
the Shoan arm v. Unles3 nromntlv re
lieved Adigrat must fall, and a further
massacre of the Italians follow.
Refused England's Demand.
New Yokk, March 0. A spacial to the
World from Caracas saya:
The 90 days allowed Venezuela to an
swer the demand for indemnity for the
arrest of the English officials, Barnes
and Baker, on the Urnan river, iu De
cember, 1S91, has expired. The govern
ment will not speak officially, bnt the
highest authority is given for Hie state
ment that the Venezuelan government
refused to pay the indemnity, declaring
that the question of arrest and boundary
dispute cannot be separated. To pay the
indemnity would be lo recognize British
sovereignty over Venezuelan territory.
It is believed here that unless Sir
Julian Pauncforte and Minister Andrade
can arrange tho matter satisfactorily in
Washington. England will use force to
collect the money, treating the arrests as
distinct from the boundary.
Romi:, March 0. Rioting caused by
the anger of tho people at tho conduct
of the Abyssian campaign was contin
ued last night in nearly every largo city
in Italy, although a rainstorm cleared
tho streets of tho capital.
At Milan tho mob marched through
the principal street, smashing windows
right aud left, and yelling execrations
on Crispi and thu ministers. Tho riot
ers went to the railway station with the
intention of preventing tho departure
from Milan of the army reserve of that
city and neighborhood belonging to the
class of 1S72, but the authorities kept
the men in thu barracks and sent a regi
ment of infantry to guard tho railroad
station. These precautions only in
creased the excitement of tho mob lead
era and an attempt was made to break
into the depot. Sharp encounters fol
lowed. The soldiers and cafabinieri
were pelted with stones, and bayonets
and swords were used to drive back the
crowds. Some soldiers and policemen
were injured. Scores of rioters wero
The disturbances continued until 2 a.
tn., when the troops at the point of the
bayonet had cleared the railroad station
aud the neighborhood of rioters, aod es
tablished a cordon of soldiers about it,
while guarding, with strong pickets, all
There is today a marked improvement
in the demeanor of the jwpulace. A
proclamation by the mayor, enjoined
the inhabitants to be calm and avoid

There was serious rioting at Parma
last night. The municipal buildings
were 1-esieged by angry mobs, windows
were smashed and the troops fired a
volley over the heads of the most
riotous oi tke mob. The rioters then
scattered, pursued by the carabinieri,
who succeeded in capturing several lead
crs of the disturbances. They will bo

New Yosk, March 6 A special to tho
Herald, from St. Petersburg, says:
The Novosti says the defeat of the
Italians at Adowa has knock til another
hole in the triple alliance, and that Italy
and Spain arc engaged in futile wars.
The Novoo nmya casts the entire
blame for the disaster upon Signor Crispi,
who overrode the war office and the mil
itary staff. It says that General Bal-
dissera arrived on a scene of disorgan
ization and discouragement.
Loxuos, March C The Times has in
formation from Coracoa, in the Danish
West Indies, that the authorities at that
place havo. been advised that a British
squadron of five ships will arrive there
shortly. Curacoa is about 75 miles from
the Venezuelan coast.
Is not Responsible.
Washington, March 0. The presi
dent said to a representative ol tho As
sociated Press today :
"I see it is assumed iu certain quarters
that an article published a few days ago
on the Cuban question may be taken as
defining tho attitude of the administra
tion on tho subject. I wish you would
say that I never saw the statement nor
heard of it until I read it in the news
papers, and even then neglected to read
all of it, supposing that it represented
nothing more than a newspaper guess.

whom it was constructed or inspired, but
I do know that I am in no manner res
