Sensational Eumors Current
THE CASE SHROUDED IX MYSTERY
CentlTltles in the Capital City' to
Celebrate II is Death Have All -Keen
Key West, FJa., Dec. 16. Passen
gers arriving here tonight from Havana
report that Antonio Maceo is alive and
well, and is in the province of Matanzas.
The passengers Bay that all of the fee
tivities that were going on in Havana to
celebrate his death have been ordered
stopped, since it has become known that
he is alive.
Denver, Dec. 16. A News epecial
from Key West, eaya :
Advices from Havana tonight by the
steamer Olivette state that trie alleged
death of Maceo is still shrouded in mys
tery, and a majority of the Cubans se
fase to believe that the great chief is
dead. The body has not been discov
ered, and contradictory statements made
by the Spaniards lead the Cubans to be
lieve Maceo Is still alive. .' Even the
people who live at Punta Brava, wnere
Maceo is eaid to have been killed, do not
credit the story. Dr. Zertucha continues
to make conflicting statements. - He
Bays now that the knife which the
Spaniards ' have belonged to young
Gomez, and not to Maceo. They Bay
this proves either that Maceo is still
alive or that if he is dead, his death will
not injure the rebellion.
There is a multiplicity of theories cur
rent in regard to Maceo. One report in
Havana is that the Spanish officer at
Cabezas, province of Matanzaa, h'as in
formed the Havana, authoiities that
Maceo passed that place recently with a
large force. Then, too, it is claimed that
a letter has been received in Havana
from Aguirre, the insurgent leader,
dated December 11, in which no men
tion is made of Maceo's death.
Weyler is now in a quarrel with the
marine authorities because of the charge
that Maceo passed the trocha in a boat.
The marine ' authorities deny the story
positively; and have cabled the facts to
Spain. All these contradictory state
ments render it difficult to believe that
Maceo is really dead.
SNOW STOHH IS RAGING.
Cold Wave Strikes the New England
New Yoke, Dec. 16. A violent storm
struck this city last night, which was
born on the gulf of Mexico, The storm
moved very slowly northward during
the day, and in the evening was central
over Norfolk, Va., and Btill moving
northwest. There was rain along the
southern coast, and at Norfolk there was
1.4 inches. Hurricane signals floated
along the greater part - of the coaHt, for
the storm threatened great danger to
In this city the temperature .was at
freezing point, and the wind blew -at 36
miles an hour. At Sandy Hook it was
42 miles, and at Nantucket 45, while at
Block island, which is always the point
on the coast where the wind is strongest
when there is a big storm, it was blow
ing at 60 miles an hour.
From Egg Harbor, N. J., it was re
ported that the storm promises to be one
of the worst ever known there. The
thermometer has fallen 24 deg., and the
wind is blowin 40 an hour and constant'

Snow Still Falls.
New York, Dec. 16. The snow storm
which began yesterday afternoon still
continues. At 9 o'clock Sandy Hook re
ported the wind blowing from north
northeast 40 miles an hour and very
thick off shore. The telephone line con
necting Sandy Hook with the life saving
stations off the Jersey coast is down,
preventing reports from the life-savers.
Telegraphic reports from Long Branch
and Ausbury Park say nothing has been
abandoned yesterday after the rescue of
her crew by the steamer Yorktown.
The thick atmosphere caused by the
snow storm interferes materially with
river and harbor navigation. Only two
steamers reached quarantine this morn
ing, the Starlight,, from Swansea, and
the Aeloun, from China ports. No ves
sels have left port this morning.
