DE4D ON THE FIELD
Maceo's Life at Last Offered
Up for Cnba Libre.
YODNG GOMEZ SHARES HIS FATE
The Spaniards Are Encouraged,
Well They May Be, at Thin Un
Havana, Dec. 8. It is stated in most
positive terms by the Spanish authori
ties that Antonio Maceo, the 'great in
surgent leader, and the heart and soul
of the Cuban cause has been killed in
Havana province, after having effected
the passage of the western trocba, near
Mariel, at its northern extremity. With
Maceo died the youth Francisco Gomez,
eon of Maximo Gomez, who accompanied
the mulatto general on his passage of
the tiocha. Most explicit details of the
findine of the corpse of the fallen leader
of . the Cubans, and of the facts relied
upon for the Identification, are at hand
through the report of the Spanish com
mander, Major Cirujada, who contested
the passage of the trocha unsuccessfully
on December 4th (last Friday, with
Maceo, and who sustained another con
flict yesterday with the forces under the
It was in a rennoissance, after the lat
ter engagement, that the Spaniards
found the two corpses, not separated in
death, which they identified as those of
Antonio Maceo and Francisco Gomez.
The authorities now permit the publi
cation of Major Cirujada's report of the
engagement with Maceo, on December
4, when he forced the trocha, and which
was a fearful combat. This is the first
official admission that Maceo brought
with him across the trocha a consider
ably equipped following, and fought a
hot engagement to effect his passage.
After the Cubans had passed into Ha
vana province the Spanish commander
effected a fresh concentration in that
province "and awaited the arrival of
Maceo. He had received a confidential
information of the proposed movements
of the Cubans, and arranged his forces
accordingly. He bad, in addition, re
ceived a detailed description of the
horse Maceo was to ride, as well as of
The expected battle occurred yester-:
day, but no details of the engagement
are given for pnblication here.
After the fight, the Spanish troops
mads a . reconnoissance of the ground
previously held by the Cubans. Here
- were found the two corpses, lying to
gether, and, indeed, a.most looted in
the embrace of death. Tbe one body
was that of a mulatto, a stout man with
gray, crisp, curling hair, and the other
that of a slender, dark haired youth
Both men were dressed in white' linen
duck suits. When the linen was re
moved from the corpse of the elder of
the two it was found to have underneath
it a fine undershirt, with the initials
"A. M." upon it. The pair of black
silk socks on this body contained the
same initials, worked in red ink. There
was a gold ring on the finger containing
on the inner rim the engraved inscrip
"Antonio y Maria."
. A revolver, with an ivory handle and
marked, together with ' a small gold'
mounted telescope, was aiso loaaa. on
the body. The head of the younger
man's body was resting npon the-body
of the first. There were fonnd on it a
silver watch, an ammunition bag and
several handkerchiefs bearing the ini
tials, "F. G."

BOLTERS ARE OUT.
Sllrer Senator Kefose
to Attend the
Washington, Dec. 8. The most no
ticeable feature of the Republican sena
torial caucus today as seen from the out
side, was the absence of the men who
bolted the nomination of - McKinley be
cause of the gold-standard platform.
Those absent on this account were : Du
bois, Pettigrew, Mantle, Cannon, Squire
and Teller, All except Teller were in
the city and were invited to attend the
That their absent was intentional was
clearly shown by the following letter
read soon after the caucus was called to
order by Senator Sherman :
"Washington, D. C, Dec. 8. To
Hon. John Sherman, chairman of the
caucus of Republican senators Sir: I
herby respectfully present my resigna
tion as secretary of the caucus of Repub
lican senators. - I also resign my posi
tion as member and secretary of the Re
publican advisory or "steering" commit
tee of the senate. Very truly yours,
Fbeo T. Dubois.
Dabois' resignation was received with
out comment. On motion of Lodge, Wil
son, of Washington, was chosen secre
tary. Shonp was placed on the steering
committee in the place vacated by his
colleague. This committee was also en
larged by the addition of Hansbrougb,
of North Dakota.
The Dingley tariff bill was referred to
the steering committee, with instruc
tions to investigate as to the likelihood
of getting the bill through and devise
means to that end if possible. It was
the prevailing opinion that the beat
policy demanded the passage of the bill,
but the opinion seemed to be quite gen
eral that this was not within possibility.
Gear brought up the Pacific railroad
bill. It was referred to the steering
committee. After Lodge explained the
statns of the immigration bill, the can
cus also declared for an international
agreement on silver by agreeing to the
following resolution introduced Dy Wol
"Resolved, That a special committee
of five members of this caucus be ap
pointed to recommend some plan where'
by legislation may be had in this session
of congress looking to an international
conference with the leading commercial
nations of the world on the promotion of

It Will ba Skipped to Baltimore
Bhicago, Dec. 8. The Columbian lib
erty bell has finally been taken from its
resting place in Evanston and will prob
ably be shipped to Baltimore today
Workmen representing the McShane
Manufacturing Company, of Baltimore,
have loaded the bell on a heavy truck
ready to be hauled away.
George Knapp, who has acted as ensto
dian since 1893, has been holding it to
satisfy a claim of $6000 due him for
wages as custodian. The McShane
Manufacturing Company replevined the
bell and then failed to remove it. It
was levied npon by E. A. 8illigg, of
Chicago, to . satisfy claims against Mr.
rnapp ior rem one , seingg. a. receiver
was appointed and then discharged by
the court, the bell . going back into the
hands of the sheriff. Finally the Ma
Shane Company replevined from the
sheriff through the coroner. The bell
weighs 13,000 pounds.
A Child's Horrible Death.
San Francisco, Dec. 8. Eddie Mat
thews died last night of the result of
burns received in a fire at his home n
Sutter street. The latter has been ill
for some. time. A nurse has been' at
tending her and looking out for the two
children, Eddie and May. Yesterday
morning the children awoke and the
nnrse dressed them. Both were then
seated at the kitchen table to await their
morning meal. It was, still dark and
an oil lamp was 'standing lighted npon
the table. The mother.' called to the
nurse who responded to the sum
mons and then the accident occurred.
Eddie pulled at the table cloth, the lamp
fell upon his clothes and they were in
flames in a moment. They blazed np
and the poor child ran to his mother's
room. The sick woman got out' of her
bed and after a great effort extinguished
the flames, but her boy had been fear
fully burned abour the face, chest and
arms. " -
HOW HE GOT HIS ZITHER.

A musical instrument dealer tells a
good story tit the expense of a musically-inclined
and wealthy vcsitlent of ilx-i
little Missouri town of Hermann, says
the St. Ixiuis Globe-Democrat.- Some
time ago he wanted a tine zither and
searched the local market for one that
would suit him. .. The time he spent wa5s
of sufficient value to pay for an or
dinary instrument, and yet he did not
succeed in get-ting" anything that quite

days ago. and the package was careful

admiring friends. The zither (was a

can now say truthfully that I aui entirely

The palms of my hands were covered, and
would become inflamed; little white blisters
at first would appear, then tiiey would eel
off, leaving a red, smooth surface which would
burn like fire and itch ; well, there is no name
for it. On the inside of the tipper part of
both my limbs, screat red blotches not unlike
hives would appear, and as soon as 1 became
warm, the burning and itching would begin.
Night after night I would lie awake all night
ana scratch, and almost go wild. I beard of
