followlug advices from Havana have
deneral Weyler is nnving in a
southerly direction to the coast of
Pinar del Rio, after having taken
possession ot the mountain passes.
Theseentranccstothe mountains of
Pinar del Rio were abandoned by the
insurgents. The Cubans, it is said,
I made no resistance at these points.
General Weyler destroyed the camps
of the Cabans at Cacarajlcars, Brujo,
Brujlto, Rubl, Rosarlo, Amelia, Man
uellta, Gobernerdera', Soruo and other
The Spanish swept before them
everything that would have a tend
ency to aid the Cubans in carrying on
their warfare destroying factories
and dwellings, and even the farm
products found on the different
plantations in that section of Pinar
It is reported in Pinar del Rio that
the insurgents are down hearted be
cause of the policy of continuous pur
suit now adopted by the Spanish forces
the destruction of most of the pro
ducts necessary to sustain life in the
eastern part of the province, and
because of the military occupation of
points necessary to control In passing
from north to south.
On the north coast, Cubans and
other points are closely watched by
the Spanish columns, and traces of
any bands of insurgents can be found
in Matanzas. Some local bands are
said to exist, but they are not active
Rumors are persistently circulated
to the effect that Maximo Gomez and
Calixto -Garcia seized several days
agothe important town of Las Tunas.
This town is said to have been well
fortified and well provided with artil
lery. It is claimed the insurgents
have captured -Puerto Padre, on the
James William Brown, the Englisn
man receutly expelled from Cuba,
sailed on the steamer City of Wash
ington for Vera Cruz. As ho boarded
the boat he shouted back at the
"Viva Cuba libre!"
A report is in circulation here tt
the effect that General Maceo has
been killed in the Brujo mountains,
This report has not been officially
confirmed, and is nob believed.
The 'death of Serafln Sanchez, re
ported .here, is regarded by Spanish
officials as being a serious blow to the
Pioneers from Artemisa, province
of Sauta Clara, report having passed
trains bearing 700 sick persons en
route for Havana. According to the
persons in charge of the trains, 300
additional sick would shortly return
to Spain, ihe semi-offlcially Epoca ad
mits that he may possibly return,
"owing to tin unhealthy season."
New York, Nov, 23. The Jury in
the -case of Emilio Nunse, of the
Cuban Junta, and Captain DIckman,

Washington, Noy. 23. Appreciat
ing that the return of General Weyler
from the presant campaign without
making any headway against Macco's
forces will geatly aggravate the al
ready critical sltuatiqn in Cuba, offic
ials and diplomats1 in Washington
have been earnestly discussing for
some days various plana for rcliovlng
the situation. Thev question of a
Spanish-Cuban armistice has been
widely discussed. If the conditions
will submit of this there Is every
reason to believe that the administra
tion will exercise its good offices to
bring about an armistice in the event
that affairs become more critical be
cause ot an unsuccessful campaign
It is understood that' one form of a
peaceful Intervention wjiich Consul
General Lee has proposed to the auth
orities here contemplates the use of
the good offices of the United States
to bring about a modus vivondl for a
sufficient time to enable negotiations
to be conducted for securing the Inde
pendence of Cuba by purchase, the
United States guaranteeing the pay
ment of the debt.
General Lee has not advised the im
mediate adoption of this plan, be
lieving .tluro would have to bo a
chango in the situation before it
could be put into practical effect.

for the clerk to come to Salem many
