THE STORY IS DOUBTED
Story that Maceo was Killed
is Thought a Fake.
MACEO'S AND GOMEZ ARMIES JOIN
The "ew ot Maceo's Death la Officially
CoDflrmed ly Dak Tetuan. who
Knows Nothing; About It.
Washington, Dec. 9. Senior de Lome,
the Spanish minister, has received a
cable dispatch from Havana . which
seems to bear oat the press report of the
death of Antonio' Maceo and young
Gomez. As the cable was sent last
night before the press reports it lacks
many details of the latter. De Lome
expects fresh advices from the govern
ment at Havana.
Second Secretary Diaz Albertini, the
only member of the junta now in the
city, expressed the opinion that the
etory had no basis of truth and was sent
out for the sole purpose of influencing
and if possible defeating action by the
congress of the United States. .
"It is really amusing to learn," he
said, "that Maceo wore silk socks con
taining his initials worked in red silk,
and that his linen and that of the young
er Gomez was also marked with initials.
Neither ' of these men has worn linen
shirts and silk socks in many days.
Then notice the letter to young Gomez.
A Cuban in writing to his child never
signs his name as this letter was signed,
"M. Gomez." This is a cold formality
a Cuban never employs. He would
have signed "Yonr Father." The whole
story is - a feeble and transparent at
tempt to delay action by congress and
nothing else. The United States, and
Spaniards too, will soon learn that
Maceo Is very much alive."
" Tetuan Confirm It.
Washington, Dec. 9. Senator Dupuy
de Lome, the Spanish minister, today
received the following 'cablegram from
Madrid, from Duke Tetuan, minister of
state for Spain:
"Confirm officially the news of the
death of the insurgent leader, Antonio
Maceo, in a glorious battle for our troops,
and also the suicide of the son of Maximo
MACEO'S ARMY JOINS GOMEZ.
A Concerted Advance Upon Havana I
Washington, Dec. 9. Diplomatic and
military attaches are stirred up over the
dispatches just received from Cuba. The
advices stated that Maceo'? army had
executed a ..brilliant flank movement,
crossed the trocba, practically without
difficulty, and was now co-operating with
Gomez in the advance on Havana.
It is admitted on all sides that the
situation is critical in the extreme, for
if there is bloodshed in the outskirts of
Havana the president will be forced to
intervene to protect American interests.
It is rumored that Consul-General Lee
had intended to stay here to appear be
fore the. congressional committee on for
eign affairs, but was obliged to return to
Havana in all haste, owing to intima
tions received from the assistant consul
general. Cuban residents in this city have
stated all along that Weyler was being
led into a trap, and' they now intimate
that the jaws are closing. It is not be
lieved here that the insurgent forces led
by Gomez could by any possibility cap
ture Havana, withopt artillery, but their
presence in ita immediate vicinity would
Mr. Grocer: - there are
thousands of people who
want good tea. (many don't
drink tea now, because it
hasbeen either costly or bad )
and here is Schilling 's Best
good tea at a fair price.
Don't you want to sell
lots of such tea, and money
back it if your customers
don't like it.

undoubtedly create a reign of terror in
the city, and particularly if Weyler is
absent. Spaniards say that Weyler has
a perfect line of communication by sea
and cannot be cut - off, but they admit
that he may be in the mountains and
bis return delayed temporarily through
ignorance of the movements of the in
surgents. Cautions opinions are beard
from other official sources that the least
to be expected is the failure of Weyler'e
It is the general belief among some
peieons familiar . with the Cuban war
that a more or less certain date has been
fixed by President Cleveland for the suc
cessful conclusion of the Spanish cam
paign, and that the president was con
templating intervention whenever it
should be demonstrated that the insur
gents could not be crushed.'
TO RECOGNIZE CUBA. '
Three Radical Resolutions- Introduced
in the Senate.
Washington, Dec. 9. Senator Came
ron (Pa,) today introduced the following
"Resolved,' By the senate and house of
representatives that the independence of
the republic of Cuba should be and the
same is hereby acknowledged by the
United States of America.
"Resolved, That the United States
should use its friendly offices with the
government of Spain to bring about - the
close of the war between Spain and Cu
Mills (Tex.) followed the Cameron re
solution at once by the following :
"Resolved, That the president of the
United States is hereby directed to take
possession of the island of Cuba with the
military and naval forces of the United
States and hold the same until the peo
ple of Cuba can organize a government
deriving its powers from the consent of
the governed and arm and equip such
military and naval lorces as may become
necessary to secure them against inva
The Mills resolntion was referred to
the foreign relations committee.
Mr. Call (Fia.) followed with a resolu
tion recognizing the republic of Cuba.
The resolution has already been pub
DINCLEX BILL COMES UP.
It Was Soon Dropped, However, With
Washington, Dec. 9. Allen of Ne
braska moved the consideration of the
Dingley bill in the senate today, and the
motion was carried ; ayes, 35 ; noes, 21.
Several Democrats and Populists voted
to take np the bill. The vote to take up
the bill was as follows : Ayes Repub
lican Aldrich, Cameron, Chandler,
Clarke, Davis, Elkms, Frye, Gallinger,
Gear, Hale, Hansbrough, Hoar, Lodge,
McMillan, Mitchell. COr.), Morrill, Nel-
sen, Perkins, Piatt, Pritchard, Quay,
Sherman. Wolcott. Democrats Gor
don, Morgan, Murphy, Pugh, Roach,
Smith. -Populists Allen, Butler, Kyle,
Peffer, Stewart. Independent Petti-

Noes Republicans Baker," Carter, 2.
Democrats Blackburn, Blanchard, Dan
iel, Faulkner, Gibson, Gorman, Harris,
Hill, Jones, (Ark.), Martin, Mills, Pal
mer, Pasco, kTurple, Vest, Walthall.
Ind?pendent Cannon,'. Dubois, Mantle.
Total, 21. " .
During the discuesion 'over the" bill,
Allen said he made the 'motion - to de
monstrate that the Populists are not
standing in the way of revenue legis
lation. He addressed himself to Sena
tor Aldrich and there was a colloquy be
tween them. Aldricb asked Allen if he
would vote for the bill as it came ' from
the house. Alien replied that be would
not, but the bill could Be put in shape to
receive his vote and the voles of other
senators not members of the Republican
party.. .! .
At 2 o'clock the Dingley bill was dis
Dlaced by the immigration bill, and went
back to the calendar. Senator Allen
sought to have it made ' the unfinished
business of the morning hour tomorrow,
but an objection was offered. .
Cuban Question Considered.
Washington, Dec. 7. The senate
committee on foreign relations today dis
cussed the Cuban situation, but did not
take, any action. The discussion was of
a general character. While there was
recognition of the importance of some
action, there was coneiderabla division
of opinion as to what course should .be
pursued. Senator Mills advocated ac
tive intervention by the United States
government with armies. Cameron al
so gave notice of his purpose to press for
decided action by this government.
The friends of Cuba, who-: are largely
the majority in thicommittee, express
the opinion that the Cubans are holding
their own, which under any circum
stances is a decided gain. ,

Electric Bitters is a medicine Buited
for any season, but perhaps more gener
ally needed when the languid, exhausted
feeling prevails, when the liver is torpid
and sluggish and the need of a tonic and

this medicine has often averted long and
perhaps, fatal bilious fevers. No medi

off.leaving a red, smooth surface' which would
turn like Are and itch ; well, there is no name
for it. On the inside of the nper part of
both my limbs, err eat red blotches not unlike
hives would appear, and as soon as-I became
warm, the burning and itching would befrin.
Night after night I would lie awake all niuht
