TALK OF LYNCHING INDULGED
An Important Cuban Victory Reported
A Xexan Says the Spaniards are
Marshfield, Or., Feb. 19. A cold
blooded murder was committed on the
streets of this town yesterday afternoon,
when Carl Albright shot down his wife.
For years past his treatment of Mrs.
Albright had been cruel, and at last,
unable to etand it longer, she left him
about a week ago and began divorce pro
ceedings. After trying in vain to get
her to return to him he threatened to
kill her, and yesterday afternoon made
good his threat, as she was returning
home after doing a day's washing in
When he met her he spoke to her
about leaving him, and was asked to go
away and leave her alone. As he would
not do this, she sought refuge in Judge
Watson's residence, and a little later
started on her homeward journey, when
he again overtook her. Walking np to
her, he placed a revolver at her back
and fired five shots, the first two taking
effect. After the. first shot, Mrs. Al
bright fell to the ground, and the other
three shots, were fired alter she was
down. She was dead when picked up.
The murderer was pursued by the city
marshal, and captured, alter a resist
ance, in which he received two flesh
wounds. He is now in the hospital.
Public feeling is very bitter against
him, and talk of lynching is freely in
dulged in. Mrs. Albright was a woman
who bore a good reputation in this com
munity, and made a living for both her
self and husband at the washtub and by
any work she could get. Albright is a
worthless wretch, given to the drink
hab'it and was drunk when he k'lled his
A TXA3N3 REPORT.
Tbe Cubans, He Says, Have
Houston, Tex., Feb. 19. Captain J.
H. McGarveyy and old Texas veteran,
has just returned from Cuba. October
16 last he left Key West for Cuba, in
charge of the Viesta, with a crew of
eight men. At Key West the Viesta
was loaded with arms and ammunition
branded as lard, bacon, etc., andhe was
instructed to turn the cargo over to an
insurgent commander. On reaching the
Cuban coast he was chased by a Spanish
man-of-war and was compelled to beach
his vessel, which be did and then burned
her in order to keep the Spanish from
getting her. He and his crew struck
out from their landing place, near Mat
anzas, for the interior and joined the in
surgents. Captcin McGarvey says the Cubans
have at least 45,000 men under arms;
that they are supplied with guns and
ammunition and also receive 'sr. pphes of
money regularly from the United States.
He remained with the troops until a
fortnight ago and says he traversed near
ly the entire western portion of the Isl
and. He says the Cubans have the
Spaniards completely whipped, and at
their mercy, but he cannot understand
why they do not take Havana and bring
hostilities' to a close. This he claima
they, can do at any time they eee fit.
The reports ot Spanish virtories, he
characterizes as tissues of lies.

Highest of all in Leavening Power.-Latest U. S. Gov't Report
Tortured at a Convict Camp.
St. Louis, Feb. 19. An Ocala, Fla,
a special says:
After 10 days of torture at a convict
camp, whither they had been sent as
tramps, 11 young men were released on
writs of habeas corps issued by Circuit
Judge Hocker. ;
Two weeks ago the party reached
Ocala. They were well dressed and
said they were walking to see the country
better, to hunt and fish at will. They
had a lot of noveltiee for sale. They did
not ask aid, but the day after their ar
rival they were arrested. Justice Clay
sent them to the convict farm as tramps.
At the ranch xthey were barbarously
treated. They were chained to negroes
and given impossible tasks. Every
night upon report'ng -the tasks unper
formed, they were stripped, tied across
logs and whipped with rawhides until
blood gashed. Last night, the coldest
of the winter, the guards drove them in
to a pond, shouting : "You have been
wanting a bath ; now get it." Twice a
day they were given bread, but no meat.
At Judge Hooker's request, they bared
their backs, which were found raw and
quivering. Five of them may not re
In discharging the young men Judge
Hocker said their arrest, sentence and
treatment disgraced civilization and
every one concerned in it shonld be
severely punished. The habeas corpus
proceedings were brought by Ocala citi
zens. The victime will bring heavy
suits for damages.
The Insurgents Victorious.
, Havana, Feb. 19. Antonio Maceo,
with a large following, yesterday made
an attack upon Jaruco, the largest and
most important town on the railroad be
tween Havana and Matanzas; The offi
cial report states that the garrison made
a heroic defense, but not a word is said
of losses on either side or of the damage
inflicted by the insurgents. After the
attack, Maceo left the town and joined
the column led by Gomez, which came
to meet him. It seems evident that
Maceo and Gomez intend to move into
Matanzas and form a junction with the
insurgent forces from the east under
other leaders who have arrived there.
Their course from Jaruco was to Sabina
Robles and La Cabalina, and from there
in the direction of Madruga, which -is
It is reported that the position of the
troops makes the situation of Gomez
and Maceo compromising.
