WE REMEMBER MACEO
The Texaiis Answer to a De
mand for Surrender.
AS AT THE ALAMO, ALL ARE KILLED
Surrounded by Overwhelming Jium
bem They Sell Their Liven
Dearly Their Z.unt Cry,
"Vive Cuba Libra."
New Yoek, Dec, 27. A special to the
World from Key West, Bays :
The Lone Star company, of the Patriot
Army of West Cuba, consisting of 15
Texas sharpshooters, perished to a man
after battling more than five hours
against vastly superior Spanish forces in
Pinar-del Bio province, killing double
their own number and wounding prob
ably as many more. Havana Officials
are jubilant, passengers say, over the
news of this victory.
A Cuban band was observed near
Pinar del Bio city Thursday morning
and General Melquiz sent two squads of
cavalry to attack it. After a running
fight, the baud, which proved to be com
posed of the 15 Texans, was chased into
a "bottle," a bit of hummock having one
opening. The Texans, seeing they were
in a hole, retreated to the further end
and fortified themselves behind some
boulders. TheSpanish troopers dis
mounted and surrounded them. ponriDg
in a fire from both sides. The bra ye
Texans replied and kept up the fight for
more than five hours. By that time, six
of the 15 bad been killed and four
wounded, while 25 Spaniards had bit the
dust and 10 or more were wounded.
A flag of truce was sent in by the
Spanish, and tha Texans were called on
to surrender, but the Americans refused,
shouting. "We remember Maceo."
This infuriated the Spaniards, and
they fought with renewed fierceness.
Twice they charged, but the rapid firing
of the brave little band drove them back.
By getting on a high ridge behind the
Texan's position, the Spaniards were
enabled to kill all but two of those left.
Those two gallantly continued to fight
and held off the enemy an hour longer.
Then, overcome by thirst and enfeebled
by loss of blood, flowing from a dozen
wonnds, they were cut to pieces by the
Spanish, who finally dashed up as the
Texans cried, "Vive Cuba libre."

COAL. MIKES ON FIRE.
Valuable Property In Nova Scotia Seems
to be Doomed.
Halifax, N. S. Dec. 26. Abont 5
o'clock Thursday the coal mines of
Springhill were discovered to be on fire.
The fire originated in a pipeway on
the east slope of the 800-foot level, and
soon ate into the 300-foot.
When Government Inspector Gilpin
arrived fire was issuing from every open
ing of the mine. Two cupolas were
burned and a bankhead had to be torn
away. The miners tried to stop up
every airway. Gilpin bad to call the
men from this work, as it was attended
with great risk. . The flames shot 100
feet into the air, the reflection being
visible at Amherst.
The extent of the fire is not known,
but most disastrous consequences are
feared. The loss of the east elope is be
lieved to be complete. At 4 p. m., Fri
day, the slope was reached all right, but
the men will have hard work to save it.
Five years ago 130 lives were lost by an
explosion in these mines.
It is likely the most serious damages
will be confined to the east slope, in
which the fire started. It seems to be
burning itself out. The loss wtll be
The fire will cause great destitution
among the miners, as, oven if the fire
does not spread through the entire mine,
it is considered doubtful if work can be
resumed during the winter.

to the nerve centres in a the. stomach,
gently stimulates the Liver and Kidneys,
and aids, these organs in throwing off
impurities in the blood. Electric Bit

have tried it as the very best blood puri
fier and nerve tonic. Try it. Sold for
