DEATH ON ALL SIDES
Horrors of the Indian Fam
ine Outdone in Cuba!
BUTCHER WEYLERS' AWFUL WORK
Emulated and Weakened by Starvation
Death Alone Can Relieve
Their Suffering. ,
New Yokk, Nov. 8. A. World special
from Havana says :
Weyler has goLe, but hie purpose to
"exterminatehe breed" of the Cuban
patriots ia being fulfilled. Starvation is
killing the "concentrados" by the tens
of thousands. Hunger is doing what
Spain's 200,000 soldiers cannot accom
plish. The frightful suffering of those
who survive cry out to the mercy of
the civilized world. The physicians of
Havana are now forbidden to give star
vation as a cause of death.
A correspondent in the town of San
Domingo writes :
"A multitude of sick fall and die in
the streets here, and lie until, after hav
ing served as ignominious spectaclef for
some hours, they are collected and haul
ed away in carts used for garbage to the
dumping grounds. Some of these bodies
are thrown into the field to be eaten by
birds and dogs."
The birds of which this correspondent
writes are the vultures. '
Both the newspapers which supported
Weyler and those who opposed him are
now forced to tell half the truth about
the starving "concentrados," Here are
some whole truths made undeniable:
Since Weyler's proclamation driving
the country people into the towns was
issued, half the western populatiou of
Cuba has died. Half of those who have
survived are so weak, so emaciated, that
the flickering spark of life in them will
surely soon be extinguished. They can
not survive, although Blanco, the governor-general,
has ordered that service
rations be issued to them, rations such
as his soldiers get. The lives of the
other half of the survivors Blanco will
Photographs of starving children
speak louder than any words. These
photographs are taken at Guanabacoa
within an hour's travel of the palace
here. Remember that with natural af
fection intensified by suffering the par
ents of these children have given them
every morsel they could scrape together.
The mothers of these children deny
themselves food, refuse to eat the mis
erable scraps of meat and bread that
they may keep life in their children.
The children's legs are like pipestems.
One could count their ribs. Their joints,
made disproportionately large by ema
ciation, seem immense. These are not
isolated cases. There are thousands
and thousands like them.
The assistant mayor of Havana says
there are 15,000 concentrados in this
city. Ragged, thin and starving, these
people are huddled in the public build
ings. The hospitals are as full as the
graveyards. Certain not more than- 90
per cent of the deaths among the con
centrados in this city are reported. But
from these official figures it is easily
learned that the death rate among the
children of the concentrados in hospit
als and public buildings is 90 per cent;
among the adolfs 50 per cent, and the

death rate in the smaller . cities and
towns is even larger.
, The absolute , fact is that in Havana
the conditions are five times better,
mote favorable than anywhere else in
Cuba. Yet the Spanish officials' reports
prove that 1778 persons died in Havana
during the month of September last,
and 2278 during October.

The Supreme Court Declines to Inter
vene to Save Him.
Washington, Nov. 8. The United
States supreme court today affirmed the
decision of the circuit court of Califor
nia refusing a writ of habeas corpus to
William Henry Theodore Durrant, under
sentence .of death for the murder of
Miss Blanche Lamont. at San Francisco
in April, 1895.
The case has attracted attention
throughout the whole United States,
and today's decision permits the law to
take its course with -the condemned
Chief Justice Fuller announced the
court's decision, but made no remarks
save to cite a few authorities on which
the court based" the decision.
The decision of the Durrant case was in
response to the motion of Attorney
General Fitzgerals to dismiss the case
or affirm the decision of the court be
low. The chief justice in rendering the
opinion of the court, indulged in no
comment whatever, merely remarking
that the decision of the circuit court
was affirmed on the authority of the
decisions of the court in previous cases.
Attorney-General Fitzgerald was
present in the court room when the
opidion was rendered, and said it would
insure Durrant's hanging.
The News In San Francisco.
San Francisco, Nov. 3, The news
that the United States supreme court
decided not to interfere with the execu
tion of Durrant spread quickly over the
city today and crowds of interested peo
ple read the announcement eagerly from
the newspaper bulletin boards. The de

Attorney Barnes, who conducted the
sensational ' trial, the results of which
was the conviction of Durrant for the
murder of Blanche Lamont, was much
pleased with the decision of the supreme

f China silk is much used for under
wear now and lovely and durable gar
ments are the result.
; -A clever French, woman has designed
36 separate and distinct styles in sleeves
for the present season.
i A pretty little bolero front of green
serge, edged with black soutache braid,
laid in a row of circles, is very pretty.
Indian silks run all the others hard,
but the lighter and more graceful qual
ities require a taffeta lining, which, adds
to the expense..
The fashion in belts i endless. The
ewellest thing is the set of oxidized sil
ver links joined with small miniatures
set in diamond frames.
While the hats of this season are
startling in the colors, there is a grow
ing tendency to use only one color in
its various shades, on each.
' Foulards promise to be plentiful this
summer, and blue, with white outline, in
"microbe" designs, seems- to be well in
the favored foreground.
Taffetas gain in favor, for all there are
some of them that won't wear well
enough to pay for making them up, to
say nothing of the cost of the silk.
Even little tots of three years wear
woolen frocks of small checks, plaids or
mixtures of serge, cheviot or canvas
weaves in shades of brown, green, tan
and bright blue.
