CUBA WILL BE FREE
IN THE PKESENCE OF HIS LOVB
Spain Is Soon to Cease Hostilities.
FIGHTING TO BE STOPPED MARCH 1
Island Will Then Bo urrndrel to
the Iunurg-ents--Spain's Emiiod
for tills Course.
Cadiz, Oct. 15. If Spain has not put
down the insurrection in Cuba by the
1st of. March, it ia the intention of the
government to give up the straggle
and let the island go. The sig
nificance of this statement, coming direct
from an officer of rank in the Spanish
army, within the week, most certainly
be regarded as of no little importance.
The above determination ia an open
secret among those who are close to the
government, and it is eaid that the pol
icy is' being adopted of exaggerating the
magnitude of the trouble in the Philip
pine islands with a view of preparing
the .people for the ultimate design of J
letting Cuba go.
By way of farther corroboration of
this estimate of the bituation it may be
lemarked that while Spain is sending
more than 200,000. troops to Cuba, who
are in the main very young and undisci
plined, she is carefully keeping her.SO,-:
000 well-disciplined and efficient soldiers
who may be available in case of an out
break at home. She is also keeping in
Spanish waters twelve warships which
are ready for sea, and which could be of
great service in Cuban waters in aiding
the United States in that police work
which she now asks that country to do
"W. G. Foster, manager of the Eastern
Telegraph Company here, speaking of
the situation, said:
"There is no question that the govern
ment is trying to use the Fhillipine
islands troubles to distract the people's
attention from Cuba. There is no doubt
that Spain intends to do her utmost to
crush the Cuban insurrection between
now and March. Failing in that, I am
informed that she will give np the
"An important issue is the fact that
Cuba has a debt of f 500,000,000, and that
if Spain puts down the insurrection,
Cuba will have to pay that debt, whereas
if Cuba wins, the payment of that debt
will'fall on Spain, who contracted it on
behalf of Cuba. Naturally the planters
who have been driven from the half
ruined plantations, however loyal they
may appear to be to Spain, really want
to see the Cubans succeed, as in that
case they would not be taxed by Spain
to pay the interest on the debt, and
could then start again under more favor
able auspices. .
"Meanwhile every one is talking
about Cuba, and little is said of the
Pnillipine islands, although the latter
comprises 115,000 square miles, against
49,000 for Cuba. ' In point of population
the Philli pines have 5,636,000 as against
' 2,276,000 for Cuba and Porto; Rico com
bined. I am satisfied! that Spain will
either have won in Cuba by March 1st
next or have given up the struggle."
Governor Abril, governor of the prov
ince of Cadiz, was next interviewed. Ia
substance be eaid that Cleveland bad
not done much for Spain, and he did not
see how a change in administration
could make matters worse, unless the
independence of Cuba ehould be ac
knowledged. He says be does not con
template a war between Spain and the
United States. The governor would not

precipitate trouble in Spain, and did
not. think that such an event was ' likely
to take place.
As to the effect of the war upon Cuba
the governor did not seem to think it
had been very grave. He added that
the Compana Transatlanta Espanola
was almost altogether occupied in trans
porting government troops and muni
tions of war, so that there naturally had
been no falling off in its traffic.
Dauntless Safely Landed,
Atlanta, Oct. 15. August Pacetti, of
the firm of Florens, Pacetti & Co., of
this city, received a letter this morning
from a friend in Cuba, saying that the
filibustering steamer Dauntless had ar
rived and landed on the south coast of
Cuba with men and ammunition.

Kleven-Year-Old Boy Sentenced
Chicago, Oct. 15. Dennis Myron is
only 11 years old,-but he has been ar
rested fourteen times and. is now under
sentence to the reform echool as a bur
glar. He grew up in that unsavory
neighborhood 'known as "Little Hell,"
and about as soon as he wore trousers
fell into the companionship of thieves
and toughs. He helped a woman in
shoplifting, and then took up; thieving
on his own account.
Myron went to a theater a short time
ago with Richard Mageevy, 9 years old.
They took an alley route upon leaving
saw a window in the rear of No. 50,
Dearborn street, open. Myron told
Mageevy to get inside and grab what he
could while he watched for a "jigger."
He boosted the younger boy inside ; no
jigger" appearing, the boys got away
with cigara and some small novelties.
The next daytbere was so much cigar
smoking along the docks that detectives
made inquiries. They traced the cigars
to the small boys. '.
When this criminal was sentenced by
Judge Clifford an angry rook settled on
hia dirty face, and his begrimed fist,
tightly clenched, was Bhaken jast as near
Detective Walbaam's nose as the mite
could get it, as he said :
"You just wait; I'll settle you."

Last February' Tessie Moore, now 16
years old, residing at 19o2 McAllister

18 years of age, residing at 504 Baker

minutes, and then went to the drug store
at McAllister and Baker streets and pur
chased a' bottle of Btrychnine. Return

bought a bottle of bromo eeltzTer. The
girl, believing what he eaid to be true,
led him to the kitchen, took from the
shelf a glass and placed It to receive the
powder. Into the glass Hamilton
poured the poison. Atttentive to her
lover's wants, Miss Moore procured for
him a spoon with which to mix the
drink. This done, Hamilton filled the

Tess," drank off the deadly draught, the
unsuspecting maiden lovingly watching
the while. -

were almost marvelous :n the case of my
wife. While I was pastor of the Baptist
Church . at River Junction she was
brought down with Pneumonia succeed
