Brave and Brilliant Officer and
Antonio Maceo was, without question,
the most brilliant figure of the present
revolution in Cnba. He effected a land
ing at Certe de Barancoa on March Slet.
With him were Flor Crombet and a
number of persons. Maceo bad been a
member of General Gomez' staff during
the ten years' war, from 1868 to 1878,
and 'commanded large bodies of troops
in the province of Santiago de Cuba, in
which province bis family had lived,
and where he owned a large plantation.
After the ten years' war Maceo traveled
in Central America, attempting to raise
a large force to invade- Cuba, and con
test tha sovereignty of Spain.
In 1886 be went to Hayti to try to get
assistance for an invasion of Cuba, but
he was driven out, and lived for a long
time in retirement in Jamaica, and after
that he reurned to Cuba and lived very
quietly n his plantation in tbe eastern
province, where he was very popular.
In 1890 be was driven out of Cuba and
went to New York. At the time of tbe
present outbreak he was in Florida, and
he joined a large expedition which Bet
out from Fort Li Dion in 1892 on tbe
steamer Adirondack. A Spanish man-of-war
pursued the steamer for eight
hours, and at last tke leaders were com
pelled to land on Fortune island,' one of
the West Indies. Thence Maceo and
the other leaders made their way to
Cuba. On the great raid across tbe isl
and in 1895 Maceo was Gomez' chief
coadjutor, and . when Captain-General
Campos had finally receded with his
headquarters to Havana, Maceo led a
daring raid into the fertile province of
Pinar del Bio, where he devastated the
great tobacco district and raised the
whole province in revolt against Spain.
There he has been ever since, with the
Spanish authority in the province prac
Time and again reports have been re

or his suicide, always to 'be refuted by
his later activity.

previous report has given such exact de
tails of the circumstances of his death
and the fact of identification.
