AN ABSOLUTE FAILURE
First Plot Against Blanco

New York, Nov. 30. Captain-General
Blanco crushed in the bad the first
overt act of hostility against the estab
lishment of autonomy on the part of
the insurgents led by Weyler's partisans
says the correspondent of the Herald at
Havana. The government has been
aware tor several daya that a demonstra
tion was abont to be made.
It was discovered yesterday that it
would take the form of a secret circular,
calling on radical Spaniards to thwart
the plans of the present administration.
The police raided the printing office of
1 Commercio and seized a large num
bed of printed circulars.
They were headed "Viva Weyler,"and
contained a glorification of Weyler apd
a virulent attack on the United Stated
and General Blanco. The circulars were
signed by many Spaniards and bore the
date of "Santa Clara, -November 23d."
-These circulars have been distributed
through the mails in black-edged en
velopes purporting to contain funeral
. The discovery was followed immedi
ately by the arrest of Eva Canel, a well
known newspaper woman, who is noted
as one of the moat active of Weyler's
partisans, Joe Hermida.tbe mayor's sec
retary, and other employes ot the print
Considerable excitement . was caused
by the arrests, which are generally - ap
plauded by the friends of 'order, as giv
ing proof of the determination of the'
government to stand firm in its inten
tion to carry out its program and deal
sternly with all attempts to incite violence.

; The discovery of the 500 new" double
stars is accounted the most important
contribution to Southern astronomy
since the survey of Sir John Hershel,
sixty years ago. . One of these stars has
been found to revolve only cnce in five
years and another in about sixteen years.
Both have become of the highest in
terest to observers. : : . i
A phenomena of general' interest is
the twinkling stare, so familiar on- clear
cold nights. This, Dr Lee Bays, is -due
to sihall waves or currents in the atmos
phere about the size of an egg or some
times even larger than a man's : head.
These little waves fill the air under cer
tain conditions, as oh a cold , night, and
imposing before the eye, dart the;, light
from side to side, and in this way con:
vert the light of the star into colors or
extinguish it entirely. The appearance
is similar to the light reflected from
wavy, running water. Mr. Douglass
diecovered how to see these waves .with
a telescope and Dr. Lee brings proof that
they cause the twinklings- , .
Other important discoveries have been
made at the Lowell observatorv.
How Blanco Heads Faith.
New York, Nov. 30. A Havana
patch to the Herald says :
As evidence of good faith toward re
pentant rebels, the government will ap
point Jesus and Adolfo Cuervo, to su
perintendences of customs at Cienf uegos
and Sagua. They will have important
Spanish officials eay ; that 300 more
men of the Cuervos command will sur
render. . Clothing and $a will be given
to each of them.

by Dr. T. J. J, Lee,- who has charge o

Dr.. Lee, who is now in Boston, gave
an interesting account of his recent die
coveries through the twenty-foar-inch
telescope built by Allen Clark & Sons
which has been in use for eighteen
months. He said since August, 1896, he
has discovered about 560 new double
stars and 700 objects unnoted by pre
vious observers. Many of the stellar

. "The murders of missionaries and at

curity against further lamentable events
of the kind.",- '

A Gigantic Enterprise.
New York,. Nov. 30. Efforts were be
gan six months ago to consolidate under
one ownership : and an agent the wire
rod, wire nail and other wire interests-of
the United States. Material progress
has been made-in the last ten days, a d
a meeting has just .been held in this
city, at which every: wire manufacturer!
in the country was represented. For
some time after the plan was set on foot
it looked as if consolidation would not
be accomplished, but finally a basis ac
ceptable to all was arranged, and the
meeting was held to perfect the final
details in this stupendous transaction.
According to the press, J. P. Morgan
& Co. are financial backers of the enter
prise, which involves $60,000,000. The
capital will be furnished by American
and German firms.
