WEYLER IS STUBBORN
The Captain-General Refuses
to Yield Command.
EFFORTS TO DISPLACE HIM FAIL
Be Defied Bagasta The Orders of the
Premier Calmly Ignored Hie
-at'.'l?.r- ' '
New York, Oct. 21. A. dispatch to
the Herald from Havana says : '
In epite of all his proteata to the con
trary, General Weyler, when it comes to
the actual test of resigning his command,
exhibits decided reluctance. He has
refused to give over authority as captain-general
to his successor, Jiminiz
Castellanos, although peremptorily or
dered to do so by the Spanish minister
of war. The situation is critical. Sa
gas ta cannot, it is believed, permit his
ministry to be openly defied by General
Weyler, and yet he may have to resort
to extreme measures to remove the captain-general.
Castellanos arrived in the capital late
Monday nightT He had been anointed
by the Spanish minister of w'ar tore
place General Weyler until General
Blanco arrived in Cuba. Castellanos was
in the field when the appointment came,
but he immediately started for the pal
ace. In some unaccountable manner
a man-cf-war sent to fetch him was re
tarded. Castellanos proceeded to the palace
Tuesday morning, expecting to be sworn
in as captain-general, but it was very
soon apparent that General Weyler did
not attend nothing of the sort
should happen. He made excuses and
hesitated until Castellanos was provoked
to cable the situation to Madrid. A re
ply came quickly. It was a peremptory
order that General Weyler should va
cate, and that the newly appointed man
should assume command at once,
But even then General Weyler did not
obey. He told Castellanos that before
he would hand over the office he must
have a written statement from his suc
cessor to the effect that the four western
provinces had been pacified. Castella
nos had been in the field and new the
truth, and refused to sign any such doc
ument. This happened Tuesday evening. Gen
eral Weyler i still captain-general,' and
in effect defies anyone to divest him of
his authority. Weyler's friends assert
that he will not relinquish his command
until a few hours before the time he has
fixed to sail for Spain, The date of his
departure is now fixed for October 30th.
But it was once before fixed for the 20th.
, There is time for much to happen before
General Blanco can arrive.
General Weyler entertained the colo
nels of the volunteer forces at a banquet
in the palace Monday night. It was a
splendid affair, and the wines were of
the best. . Weyler made a speech full of
insinuations. ' He attempted to justify
himself beforehand for anything he mar
do to prevent the Spanish premier from
carrying out what he felt was a policy
that would bring diatrust to the beloved
There is little doubt that the volun
teer forces in Cuba are with General
Weyler. He has looked after them well ;
he has uniformed them and armed them
and they enjoy many privileges. They
have a good deal to loose and nothing to
gain if the Cubans are given a liberal
voice in the government. The volunteer
force is composed chiefly of petty office
holders, clerks, waiters, laborers, port-

them General Weyler is a power.
In . the meantime the rebels are
ready and eager for the winter campaign.
The movement westward is slow but
sure. ' Indeed, it. is significant that
General Gomez is not following his us
ual tactics. Heretofore bis westward
marches have been bold, swift dashes,

small bodies, but this time it is differ

LEE WLLL RETURN TO CUBA.
So Cbane;e to Me Made in the Consular
Office at Present.
Chicago, Oct.", 21. A Washington
special says (.General Fitzhugh Lee,
consul-general to Cuba, bas announced
to bis friends tbat he expects to return
to Cuba about December 15 and remain
until the conclusion of the war. He will
be accompanied by Walter B. Barker,
consul at Sagua la Grande, who arrived
in this country shortly after General
Lee, and on the.same mission to furnish
the president with definite information
as to the situation in Cuba.
President McKinley has decided to
make no change of consular offices on
the island until the rebellion in one way
or another is brought to an end. The
interests of this country and its citizens,
the president believes, will be better
eerved by officers who have had ex
perience on the island.

The cyclone destroyed the town of

is estimated' that 400 persons lost
their lives through the disaster.
Later advices frcm Manila says the

A few weeks ago the editor was taken
with a very severe cold that caused ' him
to be in a most miserable condiffon. It
was undoubtedly a bad case of la grippe
and recognizing it as dangerous he took
immediate steps to bring about a speedy
cure, b rom the advertisement of Cham
berlain's Cough Eemedy and. the many
good recommendations included therein,
we concluded to make a first trial of the
medicine. To say that it was satisfac

mildly, indeed. It acted like magic and
the result waa a speedy and permanent
