Weyler's Soldiers Commit
"WOMEN AND CHILDREN MURDERED
Stoles of Slckentor- Cruelties . Inflicted
Upon Helpless Paciflcos A -Defeat
for the Insurgents.
Havana, Sept.. 22. Well aotbenti
cated reports of barbarous acts by the
Spanish troops continue to reach here..
Recently the Havana papers published
an account of an alleged battle near
Chuco de Area, in which, afer an hour's
desperate fighting the Spaniards drove
the rebels off, killing nineteen and tak
ing many prisoners. The papers sug
gested that the government should re
ward Colonel Aguilera, the Spanish com'
mander, for his bravery. ' The facts in
regard to the battle according to Cuban
sources follow :
"On September 15th, ten rebels went
to attack a guerrilla -band,-but met
troops hidden in the high grass. The
rebels fired a volley, killing two officers
and wounding three eoldiers. The
troops fired back. Lieutenant-Colonel
Aguilera, who commanded the troops,
went then toward a colony named Pablo
Diaz. There be found some twenty-five
persons men, women and children.
He asked if they had seen any rebels in,
the neighborhood. On receiving a neg
ative answer, be ordered, as alleged by
the Cubans, a general slaughter, includ
ing children from 1 to 10 years of age.
The little children were first pierced
with the end of tbe bayonet, then fin
ished with the machete. Of that colony
nineteen were butchered and six made
their escape. The men of the guerrilla
force boasted of what they had done
when they went back to Vega, twenty
miles from the colony.
.Colonel Aguilera started with his
troops and a guerrilla force from Vueva
Paz toward the sugar estate Cuervo.
Near a place called Cuzzo he saw a
house, went to it and found only three
children in it. He asked where the
parents were. They answered that they
bad gone after iome fuel to prepare
their breakfast. The colonel ordered
the three children, ten to foutteen years
old, to be locked up in the bouse, and
after this was done he ordered tbe guer
rillas to set fire to the house. -The
guerrillas, horrified, disobeyed at first,
but ubder the threats of Aguilera they
acted, and the honse was burned with
the children in it.
On their return to Eaeva Paz tbe
guerrillas told tbe people what had been
done. This information is from a Span
Late reports give official details of a
serious engagement in Havana province
- Sunday,' on a large estate" near Cala
bazas. A small government column,
composed of Havana volunteers, of -the
regular engineer corps and cavalrymen,
is alleged to have been attacked by 500
insurgents, commanded by the leaders
Cae' ilia and Delgado, who repeatedly at
tempted to surround and overwhelm the
royal, forces. The Spanish made a gal
lant defense, tenaciously holding their
ground and repelling successive rebel
machete charges, until finally reinforced
by volunteers who had been hurriedly
.called from Arroyo Narranjo and other
near-by points. When these arrived,
by a brilliant Spanish counter charge,
the rebels were ultimately routed and
driven from the field.
The enemys loss is estimated at 100
killed and wounded. In the retreat
" they abandoned their dead. The gov
ernment losses were twenty-nine volun
teers killed and three wounded and two
cavalry killed and two wounded. It is
reported that both Cuban leaders were
wounded in the engagement.

traordinary results of drunken frenzy
ever known in the country has' just oc
curred in East Prussia. " A farmer
named Schlatt, of Gemerrie, while look
ing over his domain one morning last
week, saw a lot of cattle coming through
a broken gate into his corn field.' He
hunted up .his young son, who was
in charge of that particular-field, and
upbraided him for not better attending
to his denies. The boy's -answer en
raged the man and be swore he would
have his son's Hie.
He called together a half dozen of his
companions, who, like himself, had been
drinking heavily, and formed a sort of
court-martial. The culprit was sum
marily tried and convicted, and Schlatt
himself sentenced hie son to be be
headed. - . .
They bound the lad band and foot.
and placed his bead upon the stamp of
a tree. . One of the wretches secured an
ax, and the "sentence of the court" was
actually about to be carried out when-
the boy '8 mother and brothers, attracted
by his screams, rushed to , his rescue.
They wrested the ax from the "execu
tioner" and then ensued a fierce strug
gle between the rescuing party and tbe
dru,iken creatures who wished to put
the boy to death. It resulted in a vic
tory for the mother and her sons. '
The boy, darinp the encounter, had
grown suddenly silent, and it was found
later that fear had not only made him
dumb, but deaf as well, ane physicians
say it is doubtful if he will ever recover
tbe use of his faculties.
Ex-President Harrison on the Powers of
Government. . .
I will tell yon -what this government
can' do alone. It can fix its money nnit.
It can declare by law what shall be the
relative value of an ounce of gold and
an ounce of silver, but it cannot make
that last declaration good. It is unques
tionably fully within he power of this
government to bring this country to, a
silver basis by coining silver dollars and
making them legal tender. They can dc
that. This government can say yon shall
take one of those dollars in discharge of
anydebt owing to you for $1, notwith
standing you may have loaned gold dol
lars; but it cannot say, and enforce its
decree, if you should call out the regular
army and navy and muster all our great
modern ships and add the militia, and
put William J. Bryan in command of
them it cannot enforce the decree that
1 ounce of gold is the. equivalent of 16
ounces of silver." Not only that, not
France and England and Germany can
do that unless the markets respond.
Why? You'mav make me take - a silver
dollar for a debt, but if I have bought 1
my goods at gold prioes you cannot !
make me give as many yards of cloth I
for a silver dollar as I have been in the
habit of giving 'for gold one.
- If I have a gold dollar in this hand
and a silver one in that, and you declare
they are equal, and I can take that gold
'dollar to a bullion broker and get $2 for
it, I know it is a lie. If I have nothing
but a gold dollar, and sugar is 20
pounds for $1, I will not give that gold
dollar for 20 pounds of j-rugarl I will
take it around to a broker and get two
silver dollars for it and get the 20
pounds of sugar and have one silver
dollar left So it is, my friends. We can
of ourselves, of our own wisdom, de
clare the unit of value. We can coin sil
ver freely, bnt we. cannot make 16
ounces of silver equal to 1 ounce of gold
unless it is. And it is not unless the
merchants take it at that rate. That is
where all .this thing comes in. -It is
trade, it is the merchant, it is the man
who exchanges .and deals in these things
that fixes the relative value, and if you
do not take the value he fixes the gold
dollar will go back to the gold vault,
and the gold will go out of -circulation.
