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 given out. May Appoint A Commission. Ciiic.uio, March l, A local paper says: 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 financial situation. 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. not, and that I never found any diffi culty iu communicating with tho people in a manner which leaves no doubt as to the authenticity of any Btatcmont pur portiug lo represent my views." 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. Rioting Continued. 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 slightly wounded. 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 approaches. 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 assemblages, which would tend to de velop riotous demoi.stratious. Business is proceeding as usual and the only evi dences here of the recent disturbances are the strong additional guards of sol diers about the palace and all public buildings. 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 kept prisoners until the popular excite ment subsides. Russian Opinion. 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. Approaching Venezuela. 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. I do not know how it originated, nor by whom it was constructed or inspired, but I do know that I am in no manner res ponsible for it nor in any way related to it. "I only desire to say iu addition that 1 do not know whether tho publication re ferred lo represent tho viows of tho ad: minietration on the Cuban question or A Frenchman's Opinion. New York, March 0. A special to the World from Paris says : No living Frenchman has suffered more for the cause of liberty than Henry Rochefort, tbc veteran editor of the in transigeant. tew eti writers exer cise so widespiead an influence over the masses of their countrvmen. In an in terview he said : "I do not think the people of the United States would stand idly by and see, under Weyler, a repetition of the former 10 years' tr.vedv. If the recent resolutions In congress really represent public opinion, President Cleveland can not postpone action indefinitely. "The whole body of intelligent people I in France U with the insurgents.
