Tallahasse, Fla., Jan. 21.— Sensa­
tional stories are afloat here tonight.
Governor Mitchell, at the request of the
war department in Washington, has or­
dered Adjutant-General Houston to see
that the Florida military be placed in
readies» to take the field at a moment’s
notice. The governor, it is reported,
w ill call the militia together tomor­
row. In the meantime, the adjutant-
general is quietly issuing orders.
Similar requests, it is reported have
been sent to the governors of other
Southern states. The story has become
generally known and is causing excite­
ment thronghout the South.
Governor Mitchell and Adjntant-
General Houston were asked in regard
to it, but they refused to talk. Gen­
eral Houston has been in bis office all
day, and has sent telegrams to all bat­
talion commanders in the state. Major
Turner, of Jacksonville, commanding
the First Florida battalion, has re­
ceived several messages from General
The battalion commanders
at Tampa and Pensacola bave also re­
ceived messages from General Houston
during the day.
It is stated, as coming from the ex­
ecutive office, that the Washington
authorities have reason to believe that
a deal is pending between Spain and
England for the sale of Cuba to tne lat­
ter; that the United States is preparing
to resist the transfer of the island, and
that the flying squadron is ooming to
American waters to be ready for the
war with the United States which w ill
inevitably follow an attempted cession
of Cuba.
Dispatches from various cities in
Florida report that the troops are
gathering and that the war fever is
higher now than the day after Presi­
dent Cleveland’ s Venezuela message.
New York, Jan. 21.— A special to
the W orld from Boston quotes Rear

it would not astonish me. I wrote to
Admiral BnDce, at Hampton roads,

that conclusion because matters had
qieted down in the Transvaal, and the
excitement over Emperor W illiam ’ s
telegram to Kruger had subsided.
“ In my opinion, if that flying squad­
ron does appear in American waters,
under existing conditions, it can only
be construed as a menace to the United
States. ’ ’ __________________

Washington, Jan. 18.— The Demo­
cratic convention w ill be held in Chi­
cago, July 7. That was the decision
reached today by the national Demo­
cratic committee after an interesting
and, at times, exciting session, which
continued until 11 o ’clock tonight.
There was cosiderable difference of
opinion as to the time of holding the
convention, the proposition advanced
by Mr. Thurman who held the proxy of
the New Mexico member, being to
hold it June 2, two weeks before the
Republican convention, and the other
by Hugh Wallace, of Washington, to
hold it Jnly 7. The oommittee de-
oided upon the latter date by a vote of
32 to 18.
The main interest seemed to center
in the choice of the convention city.
For this honor there were four appli­
cants, Chicago, St. Louis, Cincinnati
and New York. Thirty minutes was
allowed each in which to piesent its
claims. The speeches made by distin­
guished citizens in each instance, were
of a high order of excellence, and, at
times, aroused the greatest enthusiasm.
The balloting began at 6 o'clock this
evening, and from the first a long and
bitter straggle was indicated.
first ballot resulted:
Chicago, 6; Cincinnati, 11; St. Louis,
19; New York, 14.
There was practically no variation,
except for the change of a vote or two,
until the twenty-third ballot, when
Chicago began gradually to increase
her vote at the expense of New York.
On the twentieth ballot New York’ s
strength was rapidly disintegrating, her
vote going almost bodily for Chicago;
bnt St. Louis, whioh had tenaciously
clnug to her nineteen votes, also cap­
tured several of Cincinnati’s votes,
and, on the ballot before the last St.
Louis led Chicago by one vote. Before
the last ballot, the twenty-ninth, whioh
was taken shortly before 11 o'clock,
the four remaining votes of New York
were thrown to Chicago, and she ob­
tained the necessary plurality. Sena­
tor Brioe voted for Cincinnati to the

General Campos’ statement is:

Be it known that I have not resigned;
the government has removed me, and
has done well.
" I feel a great resentment, caused by
the conduct of the parties in Cnba.
Nations exercise their sovereignty in
various ways, bnt the bead should al­
ways rale. The principle of authority
shonld rise superior to all else.
“ I have been opposed, because,
while I may break, yet I never bend.
I have prevented a repetition of the sad
scenes of the last war, and this has
been distasteful to the mob.
“ The situation is this: Here is a
province, distant from the mother
country, where the political parties, by
the attitude they are taking, think to
shape the policy of Spain. If they had

what the necessities of the situation
are. But they known that they would
find me in the way if they should ask
me to shoot 1,700 students (an allusion
to the massacre of students in the last
war), and because of this knowledge
they conspire behind my back.
