i Cqnrotcie, VOL. X THE DALLES, OREGON, TUESDAY, MARCH 23. 1897 NO 01 WILL BE FREE This Opinion is Now Gener ally Prevalent in Havana. NEARLY ALL SPANIARDS ADMIT IT uniinlsli Iti'tlili'iits Freely Advocate Selling Culm to the InsurcontH--Woylor's FrultlnsR Policy Uomluinncri. 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 phil!ippino islands. "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."

He was traced through a woman to whom he had been married some years ago, and who has been living in Texas. ltLOCRA.DE IS USELESS: Greek Army of Occupation Cannot lie Starved Out. 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 ish troops. 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. A VLVM POll MR. HERMANN.

Bristow, of Kansas, fourth assistant postmaster-general. Interior Bingor Hermann, of Oregon, commissioner of the general land office. Justice J. D. Elliott, attorney for the district of South Dakota.

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.

This is one of the old 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 same expedition. CRETANS NEAR CANF.A . A Spirited Attack on tlie Turkish Forts. Canea, March 22. The insurgents de scended yesterday evening close to the blockhouse at Malaxa, and fired on Su da. A Turkish cruiser replied with sev eral shells. No one was killed or wounded. 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 tidi and Canea will be virtually block aded from the land side. Fighting at Malaxa ceased at 5 o'clock this evening. The Turks failed to re victual the fort. They had many wounded and 10 killed. Turkish Admiral Culled to Account. London, March 22.

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 circulars and testmonials. Address, F. J.
