NEARLY ALL SPANIARDS ADMIT IT
uniinlsli Iti'tlili'iits Freely Advocate
Selling Culm to the InsurcontH--Woylor's
New Yok, March 22. A World die
patcli from Iluvium save :
Only n few of the more excitable Span
ish oflicers refuse to admit that Cuba is
lost to the crown. Resident Spaniards
confess thoy can see no other outcome.
In fact, evidences that Cuba may in the
end be freed by Spanish residents them
selves are many and strong. The calm
est minds predict the end of Spanish
rule within two years. Some say not
Eosoon; others say within a year.
The proposition of Cisneros and Go
mez, sent in writing to the New York
World, to buy the lBlnnd, is growing in
popularity here, its warmest advocates
are Spanish and residents here, loyal to
the crcwn. They are the active finan
cial and business men of the island, the
owners of eight-tenths of its wealth and
its sources of wealth.
The Spanish element is condemning
with more nnd more emphasis the fruit
less, exhausting policy of General Woy
ler. They see his idea of pacification is
depopulation ; Lis plan for peace devas
tation. Fanners, laborers and all wealth
producing classes in the country are
driven to their graves or to the rebel
ranks to destroy what remains. Wealth
already produced is given to flames.
They see that Captain-General Weyler
is makiug no military progress. The
Cubans are being left more and more in
possession of the country. They fre
quently sack small towns close to Hava
na, They are in force in cities of the
fourth and third class once or twice a
month. Such things grow more com
mon. fjiur iu woHiruoiioiiiHi.;
Cntc.uio, March 22. A special to the
Times-Herald from Washington says :
The Madrid government nnd Minister
de Lome are meeting the stato depart
ment half way in the liberation of Amer
icans under arrest in Cuba. General
Weyler, however, is acting the part of
an obstructionist, and this may cause
liia transfer to the Phillippine islands.
This statement is made by an official
who is thoroughly familiar with the
negotiations with regard to the Ameri
cans in confinement. Only eight Ameri
cans are now within the walls of Spanish
jails in Cuba.
( "These eight men," ho continued,
"will be freed within a short time. You
will hear of the liberation of two and
perhaps three during the present week."
"Were it not for General Weyler,
there would be little doubt that we
would be able to secure a much more
rapid disposition of the cases. There is
wme friction between the Madrid au
thorities and General Weyler in regard
to the matter, and it would not be sur
Prteing to see him transferred to the
"Keports which have reached the state
department bear out the dispatches of
the last few days, showing the weakness
of the rebel forces in Cuba. Instead of
having two armies, such as Maceo and
wmez commanded a year ago," contin
ued official, "the rebels are now
laming about Cuba conducting a guo-
warfare. There is no banded re
"ietancG against the nrmy of Spain,
general Weyler has demonstrated that
can march unmolested through tho
Provinces of Matanzas, Havana, Pinar
el Rio and others."

ltLOCRA.DE IS USELESS:
Greek Army of Occupation Cannot lie
Constantinople, March 22. The
opinion prevails here that the blockade
of Crete by the fleets of the foreign pow
ers, which commenced yesterday, will
be useless, as Colonel Vassos, command
er of the Greek army of occupation, is
well supplied with provisions. It is
thought the best means to accomplish
the withdrawal of the Greek trdops from
Crete would be to withdraw the Turk
Edhem Pasba, Turkish commander in
Macedonia, has telegraphed the minister
of war not to send any further reinforce
ments on account of the scarcity of pro
visions. The commander of the Turkish
squadron, which just made ready for
sea, received sealed orders, but it is not
believed tho warships will leave Galli
poli. The Turks at Tokat yesterday attack
ed the Armenians in a church. Fifteen
were killed. It is feared this outbreak
marks a renewal of the massacres.

Memphis, Tenn., March 22. Today
the flood situation may be compared to
the "calm before a storm," because the
Mississippi registered a fall of 0.1 in 24
hours, which is taken to mean heavy
breaks in levees above, foretelling aw
ful calamity to the country south of
here. The government gauge at 10
o'clock shows a depth of S7 feet.
Relief boats continued to ply between

Benavides cases, dating back about four
years, when the filibusters under Leader
Benavides were chased across the bound
ary inta Texas, and arrested by the
United States authorities on various
charges, such as murder, arson and rob
bery, committed in Mexico. Several of
the prisoners were extradited to Mexico,
when Judge Maxey stopped further pro
ceedings of that nature, on the ground
that the prosecution was political. The
supreme court of Texas has since re
versed Judge Maxey's opinion, and the
department of state is granting the re
quests of the Mexican government for the
extradition of the men, most of whom
have been in Texas jails for violation of
the neutrality act, growing out of the

The situation at Malaxa has become
critical today. The garrison has pio
visions for two days only, and if the in
surgents capture the forts, Malaxa, Kori

Fighting at Malaxa ceased at 5 o'clock
this evening. The Turks failed to re

Turkish Admiral Culled to Account.
London, March 22. The Atheus cor
respondent of the Chronicle telegraphs
as follows :
The Italian government has instructed
Admiral Canevaro to institute an in
quiry as to the exact circumstances un
der which a Turkish warship at Suda
bay bombarded the insurgents, and has
empowered him to force the Turkish
ships to retire, if he deems it necessary.
A Valuable Prescription.
Editor Morrison of Worthington, Ind.,
"Sun," writes: "You have a valuable
prescription in Electric Bitters, and I
can cheerfully recommend it for Consti
pation and Sick Headache, and as a gen
eral system tonic it has no equal." Mrs.
Annie Stehle, 2025 Cottage Grove Ave.,
Chicago, was all run down, could not eat
nor digest food, had a backache which
never left her and felt tired and weary,
but six bottles of Electric Bitters re
stored her health and reneweu strength.

A 1st. NHzaire Boat i'leked Up.
New York, March 22. A boat of the
St. Nazaire was picked up by the
steamer Creole, which arrived this morn
ing from New Orleans. Six dead bodies
were in the boat and no one was alive.
There is more Catarrh in this section
of the country tiian all othe diseases put
together, and until the last few years
was supposed to be incurable. For a
great many years doctors pronounced it
a local disease, and prescribed local
remedies, and by constantly failing to
cure with local treatment, pronounced
it incurable. Science has proyen catarrh
to be a constitutional disease, and there
fore requires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrah Cure, manufactured by
F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the
only constitutional cure on the market.
It is taken internally iu doses from ten
drops to a teaspconful. It acts directly
on the blood and mucous surfaces of the
system. They offer one hundred dollars
for any case it fails to cure. Send for
