DIED DOING HIS DUTY
Insurgent General Sanchez
Killed in Battle.
WAS A VETERAN PATRIOT LEADER
Bad Served Under Maceo Daring the
Previous Insurrection Fate of
an Insurgent Colonel.
Havana, Oct. 5. An important en
gagement, in which General Seafin
Sanchez, a well-known insurgent leader,
was killed, has been fought on the Re
serva plantation, in the province1 of
Matanzas. Sanchez was widely known
as a Cuban leader. He served under
Maximo Gomez, in . the previous Cuban
After the capitulation of the Cubans
in Sangora, Sanchez reappeared in Las
Villas at . the head of a large body of
men, but was finally allowed by v the
Spanish governor to leave Cuba. In
June, 1895, he landed in Cuba with' the
George W. Childs expedition under Gen
eral Roloff, and since has been active in
the insurrectionist cause. He recently
crossed the trocha from ' Pinar del Rio,
entering the province of Matanzas.
It is reported that the rebel lieuten-ant-colonel,
Mirabel, formerly a bandit,
alter ucuig Bel luuaj v v uuuucii b 111 u
fight on the road from Havana to San
Jcse de las Lejas, was shamefully aban
doned by the young Havana recruits
composing his command. A negro ad
jutant and two uiulattoes alone remained
and lost their lives while attempting to
bear their wounded chief from the field,
from under a rain of bullets. When
finally captured, Mirabel begged to be
allowed to epeak with the Spanish guer
rilla captain, bnt the latter, refusing to
hear him, ordered the prisoner to be dis
patched at once.
Antonio Maceo is reported to have
used artillery in his recent attack upon
, the Spanish positions at San Felipe in
1'inar del Kip.
Superintendent Saco, of the govern
ment battalion at San Quentin, wounded
in that engagement, has since died.
Maceo's. forces outnumbered the loyal
troops four to one. He commanded in
person, surprised the Spanish camp at
besieged it for eighteen hours. The
commander finally evacuated it and cut
his way out, retreating toward the coast,
to telegraph Captain-General Weyler at
Havana that another victory had been
won. Trustworthy unofficial reports
from the engagement give the Spanish
losses as fifty-nine killed and sixty-four
wounded. The rebel loss was seventeen
killed and twenty-three wounded.
The rebels who raided and burned the
town of Lai Canae, near the trocha, last
week, are reported to have been led by a
Cuban boy 17 years of age, a son of Gen
eral Carillo, of Remedios.

Havana, Oct. 5. Later advices from
.Matanzas say that it was Lopez, the in
surgent leader, and not Serafin S.anchez,
that was killed in the engagement at
the Reserve plantation. -
THE FLORIDA ELECTIONS.
Democrats Expect the Usual Majority
for the State Ticket.-
Jacksonville, Fla., Oct. 5. Not since
1876 has there been so much interest
taken in a state election as is displayed
in the contest that will be settled at the
polls tomorrow. In addition to state
Issues, there are many county differ
ences to- be adjusted. As a rule, only
Democratic and Republican tickets are
in the field, but in some cases there are
Populist and Independent candidates.
The fight; however, is between Demo
crats and Republicans, and in the fight
for important state offices the Democrats
will win by. large majorities." Fifty
thousand votes will probably be cast,
and of these, it is estimated that Blox
ham, Dem., will receive between 30,000
and 35,000 for governor. ' ' .
Coc-Iiri.il' Speech Spoiled.
' St. Louis, Oct. 5'. An immense crowd
assembled at the Auditorium tonight to
listen to Bonrke Cockran on the money
question.' So frequently was be inter

that the effect of his speech was almost

On several occasions portions of the

boisterous. The disorder increased as he

Connecticut Town Elections Show Re
Hartford, Conn., Oct. 5. Town elec
tions were held all over the, 6tate today,
except at Hartford, New Haven, Bridge
port, Ansonia, Darby and Naugatuck,
and the results ehow a decided, gain in
Republican strength and lire believed to
be an index to the greater political bat
tle, which will be waged at the polls
four weeks hence.
The extreme satisfaction at the result
expressed by Lieutenant-Governor Cook,
the Republican gubernatorial nominee,
found a reiteration at the headquarters
of the Republican state committee,
where it was stated tonight that McKin
ley and Hobart would get upwards of
30,000 majority. .'... V.
Though today's elections present many
local issues, which complicate the efforts
to arrive at an intelligent idea of the
leading parties' strength in' the few
towns that had both gold and silver
Democratic tickets in the field, the gold
men were greatly in the majority.'
The weather was unfavorable for a
large vote, but the leaders of both par
ties realized that upon the result of to
day's elections, an estimate of the prob
able majority in Connecticut would be
formed, and an effort was made in al
most all towns to get out the fullest

and four Democratic towns. There are
seven towns not beard from.
Litchfield county gives seventeen Ee

while Tolland shows the usual Republi

Windham county is looked upon as
the hotbed of Republicanism, and in the
election today maintained its reputa
tion. In several towns, notably Wind
bam, the school and liquor questions
were injected into the campaign. ' The
beads of the tickets were, however,
voted for on straight lines, and a Re
publican gain was manifest in every
