TO DESTROY KEV WEST
Latest Plot of the Spanish
WILL ATTEMPT TO BURN THE CITY
General Weyler Has Appro ed
Sanctioned the riot Spanish
Troops Coming to Cnba.
Key West, Sept. 7. A letter was re
ceived from Havana last night by the
steamer Mascotte containing the infor
mation that the Spanish authorities are
plotting the destruction of Key West.
A similar report reached here several
days ago, but at that time it was not
generally believed. The ' letter was
written by a Cuban in Havana to a
friend in this city. The writer says that
a few days ago he went to the govern
ment in Havana and was informed by a
friend employed there that Spanish au
thorities had determined to burn Key
West and annihilate the nest of "in
The plan of the Spanish is to send
emissaries to Key' West in the guise of
Cuban sympathizers, who are to fire the
city in as many places as. possible when
opportunity arises. It is said that Captain-General
Weyler is cognizant of the
plan and approves of it. He is reported
to have said that if Key West and Tampa
were laid in ashes he would soon be able
to settle the rebellion. It is said that in
the event of the success ot the plot
Weyler has ordered that the emissaries
be paid $10,000.
The people nere are so wrought up
that it is feared an attack may be made
on Senor Gruse, the Spanish consul and
bis assistant, Senor Hernandez. It.waa
reported today that these,, gentlemen,
becoming alarmed for their safety, had
gone aboard the Cnited States revenue
cutter Winona and demanded protec
tion, and that they were told to remain
on the vessel until the excitement died
, The citizens have determined to form
a vigilance committee, and every per
son who cannot give a good account of
himself will be forced to leave the city,

M an Who Foretold the St. Louis Cyelone
A grain Heard From.
Wichita, Kan. Sept. 7. Joseph H.
C. Swan, "the sage ot the Whitewater,1
widely known for his correct forecast of
the St. Louis cyclone and other meteoro
logical phenomena, makes the following-
"The winter of 1896-97 will be very
long and cold, much snow in all localities
where snow is a factor. Blizzards will
be numerous, highways will be block
aded, all to be followed by much rainfall
and high water most of the year. Do
not be in haste . to get in spring crops
Plant large and late varieties of corn
Wet weather will be your trouble. Pro

do not forget the suffering, hungry and
poor of our land."

New Yokk, Sept. 7. The Herald pub
lishes the following-special correspond
ence from Palmacita, Cuba, under date
of August 30 :

pulsion of Spanish troops from, Cuba.
The forces of Rosa and Pena have laid
waste the entire heart of the town, leav
ing the occupants of the forts in a pre
carious position. The inmates of Ces
. coros forts are now in a pretty bad way,

The Arkansas Election.
Little Rock, Ark., Sept. 7. General
Dan w Jones, of Little Rock, was today
elected governor and the entire Demo
cratic ticket has been successful. "There
were but two full tickets in the field, the
Democratic and Republican, the Popu
lists contenting themselves with a can
didate for governor.
General Jones and Mr. Remmel, the
Republican candidate, made an active
canvass of the state, but Flies, the Pop.
ulist nominee, made no speeches. -The
Democrats put forth special efforts to
make a Iirge -majority, for its moral
effect on the free silver cause, in other
states, in November. '
Memphis, Sept. 7. The Commercial
Appeal's Little Rock correspondent tele
graphs that the Democratic majority in
Arkansas will reach 60,000. This is a
Democratic gain of more than 35,000 as
compared with the guber national elec
tion two years ago, and the largest ma
jority ever given in the state.

er, a prominent resident ot Xaylor town
ship, in a tit of insanity today tried to

nation is that we have free silver ; that

a fabulous sum is due him as back pay
and that it has been hidden by enemies
and wrongfully kept from him.

TO INSURE SAFETY.
Why Spaniards Will Transport
In American Vessels.
New York, Sept. 7. The news that
Spanish government has chartered seven
American vessels to be used in trans
porting the troops to Cuba was brought
to the attention of Fidel Pierra, member
of the executive committee of the Cuban
junty in thia city yesterday. Mr. Pierra
said : " ' k '
"They are afraid to carry their troops
in their own vessels. They know that
the Cubans would think twice before
blowing up a boat sailing under a foreign
flag, and that we will not hesitate for a
moment to blow np a Spanish vessel. I
do nit see any other reason why they
should charter these vessels, for the
.Spanish transportation company has
enough boats to carry all their troops to
Cuba, and would be glad of the oppor
tunity of making the money. Then,
Spain is very intimate with the trans
portation company, and their ' vessels
ought certainly to receive the preference.
"They expected to send 40,000 men to
Cuba, and at the rate of 10,000 a month
it will take them until December to do
so. By the time they get the last ,10,000
there the first 10,000 will have disap
peared, and more, perhaps. I do not
think they will send as many as 40,000
men, although tbey need them to replace
those that have already died. - -
"We here in the United States do not
know the number of sick men they have,
who, if they recover, will never be worth
anything to themselves or any one else,
but we have an idea of the enormous
number, by the fact that they cannot
find buildings .enough in ' Havana and
other large cities in which . to bouse
them.- Even the building of the house
of chanties in Havana, which was occu
pied by about 300 little girls, has been.
transformed . into a military hospital,
and the little children scattered over the
city, and every other establishment of
that character has been treated in the
same manner. The number of sick and
wounded Spanairds is' something enormous.'-
