Chicago, Nov. 26. The Tribune's spe
cial from Jacksonville, Fla., eays:
Colonel Joee Reyes, aid-de-camp ot
General Maceo, wounded and . en route
to New York for medical treatment, and
with dispatches to the junta, passed
through here yesterday. He says the
fighting in the Rabbi bills of Pinar del
Rio was the most sanguinary battle of
the war. He claims 2000 of Weyler's
men killed in two days, and twice as
Weyler went to the field with 35,000
men in three colume, one of 15, 00 . un
der bimself ; one of 15,000 under General
Echague, and a third of 5000 nnder Gen
eral Munoz. They found Maceo en
trenched in a creecent-shaped range of
bills. When at the foot of the bills the
Spaniards met a withering fire that
cat gaps in their ranks. Maceo's men j
shot from behind rocks and trees, " and
gradually gave way before the Spaniards, J
who, encouraged by what they thought
to be a victory, pursued them.
Suddenly a deafening explosion rent
the air, and a scene followed somewhat 1
like the mine horror at Petersburg dur
ing the civil war. - Horses and met.
were blown high in the air and fell to
the earth dead and mangled. The dy
namite mine was touched off by John
Linn, formerly of this city, who is Ma
ceo's electrician. Maceo then loosened
his dynamite guns, prepared by Linn,
and more havoc was wrought.
- In the mine explosion, Colonel Reyes
says, Weyler lost 700 men killed, and
500 more "in charging, besides 1600
Next day, Maceo, knowing of the re
serve force under Weyler, retreated to
even a stronger position. Then he was
attacked by the column under Echague,
who was roundly thrashed and driven
from the field, losing 800 men killed, be
sides 1300 wounded.
Next day Maceo retreated again
maneuvering all the while to entrap
Weyler into a field that bad been honey
combed with dynamite. - Meanwhile,
however, General Weyler, bearing that
there was danger of an uprising in Ha
vana, because of bis failure to crash Ma
ceo, hastened back to that city.

Borne of Bis Remarks.
. NewYoek.Nov. 25. The World prints
a statement by Senor Jose de Armas
Cardenas, a diplomatic agent of the Cu
ban republic, who claims to have visited
Spain to negotiate for a sale of Cuba to
the Cubans. The purchase price, he as
serts, was to be $100,000,000. He de
scribes two interviews with Premier
Canovas. He says the premier prom
ised reforms if the Cubans would aban
don the tight. He suggested an arrange
ment be made by - which the United
guarantees the fulfillment of Spain's
promises. At this Canovas burst oat:

Japan Takes a Band..
. Berlin, Nov. 25. A dispatch from
Tokio, believed to "have 'emanated from
official source, states that Japanese war

CUBA LOST TO SPAIN. -
The Conflict Viewed by Foreign
New . York," Nov. 25. The officers of
the steamer City of Washington, which
arrived today from Havana, say that
Havana is in the worst possible state of
fear. The residents are momentarily
expecting an attack by the insurgents.
The - prisons are full, business is at a
standstill and merchants (oval to Spain
are preparing to leave the country.
A passenger named J. W. Brown, an
Englishman, recently released from a
Cuban prison, where be spent a month
for shooting in the Btreets of Havana
'Cuba Libre," and who was expelled
a week ago by order of Captain-General
Weyler, was one of thn passengers.
Brown said his treatment by the Span
ish authorities ' was brutal in the ex
treme, - and that, if he had not had
papers proving him to be a British sub
ject, he woold have been shot or won Id
still be in a Spanish jail. He had been
four years in Havana, and is now on bis
"Cuba, in my mind, is lost to Spain.
The latter country is now on her beam'
ends, and the storm on the little island
will boob engulf her," he said.
Brown declared that no political pris
oners in Cuba knew what they were ar
rested for until they had been in prison
some time.' As to his own case, he did
not remember having given the Span
iard- any just cause for his arrest.
'Let me tell yoa something of Wey
ler's system," he said. ' ''Honore Lame
was captured by General Maceo, of the
Cuban armv, about nine months ago.
He was detained but a few days. After
his . liberation Laine returned to his
home in Havana. Laier he was arrest
ed at the instigation of a personal
enemy, a particular friend of -Wevler.
Reve-al months after his arrest he was
tried by a jury composed of Weyler's
own creatures and declared innocent.
Did that make any difference? Not a
bit." He is still held a prisoner, and his
cse has been referre-t to Madrid. Wev-
ley showed his displeasure toward the
court that declared Laine innocent by
sending its officers into the field as a
punifhment. Mr. Liine is a French
man, and is trying to call his case to the
attention of the French government.
"Weyler has had many foreigners ar
rested. - He detests them. Most of
these prisoners do not eye the light of
day. Finally they drop out of sight. It
saves the cost of trial. The poor Cuban
gets short ehrift. It is sufficient to know
that he is a sympathizer in the cause.
rhis is his death-warrant."
Mr. Brow if related many instances of
alleged cruel ies by the Spaniards. Dr.
Tavloi, another passenger, says that
pain's cau'h is lust, and that General
Weyler has 30,000 sick soldiers on bis
