Terms Exactly Those Laid Down By the President-Cuba and Porto
Rico to Be Evacuated.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10. Today the French ambassador, accompanied by Thie
baut, arrived at the state department at 11 o'clock, and after a conference lasting fifteen
minutes with Secretary Day, during which time they considered some of the details of the
reply, which had been left over, the latter drove to the White House to confer with the
There is reason to believe that the Spanish government will recede from certain con
ditions and that the result will be an agreement upon the basis of the terms of peace.
Secretary Day, at 1 o'clock, made the following statement to the press:
"We have agreed upon a protocol, embodying the proposed terms for the negotia
. tion of a treaty of peace, including the evacuation of Cuba and Porto Rico, and it is expect
ed the protocol will be executed. It can be stated that the terms are precisely those laid
down by the president in-his original note about a week ago. It is believed that nothing
but a few formalities remain to be disposed of to secure the signature of the protocol."
Later an agreement was reached on the protocol, embodying the terms of peace be
tween Spain and the United States.

The insurgents showered large and

garrison believed the whole American
army and fleet were concentrating their
fire. Many Spanish had previously re

reinforced from the barracks. There
has been little fighting in other direc

probably 100, but. many houses have

NEW YORK, Aug. 10. News of Cuban-victories in
the western provinces has reached here, one of the battles
was the result of the success of the attempt of General
Gomez, with 3000 men, to force the trocha between Las Vi
las and Camaguey, to make his headquarters with the offi
cers of the government of the Cuban republic at Camaguey,
The trocha at this point was guarded by 4000 Spaniards
under General Castellanos. The Spanish soldiers made a
stubborn resistance, but in the afternoon their main body
gave way before a machete charge ..of the Cubans. There
were many wounded on both sides. Spanish prisoners were
liberated after being deprived of their arms.
Litti-k Rock, Ark., Aug. 10. Word
was received here at an early hour this
morning of the hanging at Clarendon of
five negroes three men and two women
by a mob. The victims were accused
of complicity in the murder of John T.
Orr, a wealthy hardware merchant of
Clarendon, who was shot by an 'assassin
several nights ago. The prisoners - were
taken from the jail during the absence
of Sheriff Jackson, who was ill, Deputy
Sheriff Milwee, in charge of the jail,
being unable to resist the mob.
Clarendon has been the scene of great
excitement since the killing of Orr, and
the lynching of the five negroes charged
with complicity in the crim e is no great
surprise to the citizens. Orr was shot
in the back through a window while in
his home last Friday night, and died the
following day. There was no clew to
the murder and even bloodhounds that
were immediately put on the trail were
unable to run down the assassin.
After an inquest extending over two
days a verdict was returned charging
Mrs. Orr, the murdered man's wife,
with belngr the instigator of the crime.
Miss Rachel Morris, a prominent 'young
Jewess, Manse Castle, Will Sanders,
Dennis Ricard, Rilla Weaver and Susie
Jacobs, were charged with complicity in
the crime. All were placed under ar
rest except Miss Morris, who fled.
After the arrest of Mrs. Orr and the
five negroes Mrs. Orr made a confession.
She admitted that she had said to her
cook that she wished her husband dead
and that she would be willing to give
$300 to anybody to kill him. But ebe
said that this was uttered while in a fit
of anger and that she was innocent of
any criminal intention. Her husband
abused her, she said, and once struck
her, and she being of high temper her
self sometimes said things in anger that
she did not mean.
Mrs. Orr committed suicide by taking
poison in the city jail last night, so that
the only survivor of those charged with
the murder of Orr is Miss Morris.

There is only one way to cure deafness,

Deafness is caused by an inflamed con

flamed you have a rumbling Bound or
imperfect hearing, and. when it is en

unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
