THE CUBAN JUNTA
Hi-port That the United States Has
Mwle Proposals to Spain.
T DIX.LAKE CUBA FREE
Ciban Say Tkat tie fromiKi of the Revo
litloiiati Are to Be Giimtccd by
New York, Jan. 17. Tho Herald lay.
Information of a very startling character
haa reached th. Cuban lympathlsera In
thla city who aro In closest touch with
the revolutionary Junta, whence th In
formation comm. It la to the effect, aa
alleged, that President Cleveland author
Iced Secretary of Stale Olney two or
three day. ago lo send a nolo lo the
American minister at Madrid. In which
Mr. Taylor, tho present Incumbent, la
Instructed to present lo the Bpanlah min
ister of foreign affair, a communication,
which accompanied tho note, and which
contained a proposition upon Ihe Cuban
Thla proposition th, aa alleged, that
Spain at Ihe earliest opportunity with
draw her troop, from Cuba: that the
Spanish throne recognise Ihe absolute In
dependence of Cuba, and It. existence aa
a republic: that Ihe Spanish government
accept from Cuba a certain .urn of money
aa Indemnity: that Spain accept the guar
antee of the Vnlted State that Cuba
will fulfil her obligations.
I am told by thorn close to the Junta
that this communication m .distinctly
framed a. a friendly proposition, and
that it went on to may that if Spain did
not accept thla .uggestlon In the Inter
est, of peace the I'nlted State, would
Ignore the repealed aaaurance. of her
trusted representative. In Cuba, that
no danger threatened the property there
of her cltlxen. who reside In thla coun
try, and the live, of American! who llv.
In the Island In view of the lata occur
rence. In Havana, would dispatch war
hip. to Cuba to aafeguard Americana, a
thing which the admlnl.tration had thua
far refrained from doing on account ot
III Implicit confidence In the good will
and esteem of the Spanish government.
The communication la alleged at having
born shorn of everything that could bear
the slightest resemblance to a thr-t or
Implied coercion. Nevertheless, the re
ported reference aa to doubt as to Ihe
ecurlty of American. In Cuba, .hould
Spain reject these alleged good office, ot
the I'nlted State, and positive assur
ances of American war .hip. being sent
Into Cuban waters, are said to have been
couched In firm language.
My Informant Idle me that there waa
no attempt to disguise the attitude of the
United 8tates, and that In the contrac
tion of the communication the opportu
nity waa taken To explain that it wa.
extremely possible that, for the purpose
of exhibiting Justness and fairness to
both parties In the field In Cuba, thli
country would finally be compelled by
force of circumstance, to recognise the
belligerent right, of both.
It la reported that th. work of the
Cuban legation at Washington hai been
fruitful. I saw Senor Estrada Falma.
the representative of the rebel provisional
government of Cuba, and he felt confi
dent that thla country would be the
meauia of securing Cuban Independence.
I found Minister Palma last night at
Morello's, No. 4 West Twenty-Ninth
street. He had made a flying trip from
Washington to this city and was to
return today. I tried to get an expres
sion from him concerning the sudden and
itartllng notice alleged by those deep In
the secrets of the Junta to have been
sent to Spain by the administration, but
he would say little on that subject He
That Is a very delicate matter. I am
not in a position to say what the ad
ministration Is doing. I will say that I
have reasons to believe that our cause
will prevail. We have been treated with
the utmost courtesy by all whom we
have come In contact with, and I know
that there Is something grand In the air
for fro Cuba.
"Now Is the time for Spain to act If she
wants to prevent any more bloodshed and
save herself from financial ruin. The
Cuhana will erect a republic out of Cu
ba's ashes If they are "forced to keep up
th struggle In the way It Is going on.
"But If the war Is brought to an end
early we will pay whatever um let u.
call It Indemnity might be agreed upon.
It would be fair. It we took control of
Cuba now, Spain would have to turn over
to us many magnificent, forts, public
buildings and great Improvements. We
should pay for these, and we would. We
understand the justice of that argument,
and have agreed to It. But If the war Is
to continue and we finally take these
things by force, then Spain cannot look
to us for any help. She will have to
stand her own expenses, which will be
something enormous, for we can wear
out her resources without subjecting our
people to slaughter."
I saw 8. C. Henrlques, of No. 1S9 Broad
way, a gentleman who Is deep In the
confidence of some of the Junta leaders.
He said that while he did believe the
force of congress would very soon bring
about a recognition of Cuban belligerent
lights, he did not believe the administra
tion would enter upon any decided course.
"But," he continued, "what I have
heanl within the two days has really stag
gered me. It waa more than I ;ould bring
myself to believe. If it Is true, Presi
dent Cleveland has gone very far toward
crowding Spain Into a corner. I have
heard that a document of some sort has
been lent lo Spain offering the services
of this country as a mediator, tho con
ditions being that Spain leave the field
anil accept pay from tho new government
of Cuba, and that the United States
would see that the terms of the agree
ment were carried out. I don't know
whether It means that a protectorate
would be established over the island; but
I do not believe It does.
"I believe this country would have
found reasons for acting In the manner
that rumor ascribes to the president and
Mr. Olney If the truth about the situa
tion In Cuba had come to us before: but
the duplicity of Spain and the tactics of
our consuls has caused the delay."

Washington, Jan. 27. The house today,
after an Interesting tour-hour debate,
adopted the resolution passed by the sen
ate last week, caUIng the powers sig
natory to the treaty ot Berlin to enforce
the reforms In Turkey guaranteed to
Christian Armenians, and pledging the
support of congress to th president In
the most vigorous action he might take
for the protection and security ot Amer
ican cltlxens In Turkey. The house com
missioner had prepared some resolutions
on the same subject, but It was deemed
advisable, after the senate resolutions
reached the house today, to substitute
them fcr those prepared by the commit
tee. . -,-. v .
cjulpg. ot New York, who "had charge,
of th bill, made an able presentation of
the case, but there was a disposition on
the part of some members to go further
than the resolution did. and Hepburn, ot
Iowa, proposed to glvo the Turkish min
ister his passports and sever diplomatic
relations with Turkey. His remarks de
nouncing the Turkish outrages, and
charging that the powers signatory to
Ihe treaty of Merlin were actuuted from
political and other consideratoins, in

Cardiff. Wales, Jan. J7.-Realdents of
the town and In the vicinity of Tylers
town, near here, were terrified by terrific
reverberations today, which shook the
whole town. It was ascertained in a short
time that th concussion was caused by
an explosion In a neighboring colliery,
with disastrous consequences lo life anil
property. The latest report places the
number of dead at fifty-four, though It Is
feared that further exploration of the
wrecked mine will develop the bodies ot
more. There Is no doubt. as to the num
ber of men In the mine at the time of
the catastrophe. The first report gave
the number at fifty-four, but some es
caped to the surface, bringing the body
of one comrade with them.
The mining population of the locality
all knew quickly what the muffled, thun
derous rumble of the explosion meant,
and rushed to the mouth of the pit, only
to have their worst fears confirmed. The
shaft wa found to be entirely shattered,
and It was evident there was little hope
that any of those In tba pit would have
survived the explosion. The number of
dead removed grew fro twelve to fif
teen, and then twenty, and the Hat of
those known to have been in the fated
shaft kept constantly growing, and wl'h
it tne number of bereaved families wait
ing at the surface.
The work of exploration Is going on
steadily, but with great difficulty, nu-
meroua cave-ins obstructing the advance
and making It Impossible to reach the
remote portions of the mine, while the de
fective ventilation of It drives back those
advancing on their sad errand. The last
to come out brought with them five
bodies. None have been found alive, anrt
It Is not now hoped that any will be.

MURDERER STILL AT LARGE.
Koseburg, Or., Jan. ST. News comes '
tonight from Myrtle Point that the mur
derer, Sam Brown, has again eluded his
pursuers. Friday night he stayed at a
ranch near Gravel Ford, twenty-five
mllea east of Myrtle Point Much ex
hausted, he left there early Saturday
morning. Sheriff Gage, who was a short
distance behind, tracked him to the
Junction ot the east and north forks ot
the Coquille river, and found where he
had rolled a five-foot log into the river
and evidently embarked. A log, supposed
to be the same, was found lodged a short
distance below, but no trace of his hav
ing getting ashore, and it Is believed he
has been drowned.
Another theory is that this is a ruse
to mislead the officers. Andy Pool, held
on the charge of assisting Brown to es
cape, waived examination, with his bonds
fixed at M0.
