Weyler's Spanish Expedition,
Boats Fired Upon and Sunk by
Shots From a Field Piece.
Havana, via Key West, Feb. 2.
Despite rumors lately circulated to
the effect that the Insurgents were
completely demoralized, and that the
Cubans had broken into scattered
bands of 40 or so in the province of
Pinar del Ilia, news has been received
that the insurgents have blown a pas
senger train up, causing much damage
nnd considerable loss of life. Although
the censor prohibited the publication
or the news In Efavana, It soon leaked
out, creating a sensation,- and the
liveliest discussion in places where
groups gathered. At 0 o'clock on the
morning of January 29 a military
train, with engine No. 17, carrying
Captain Dupla and a force of engi
neers, left Artemisa, and while pass
ing u culyert at a place called Ocemura
between Candelaria and Mangas
stations, a dynamite bomb exploded,
dtstroying the engine and the armored
tender, as well as the culvert, also
wrecking several cars. Engineer Gen
aro Rodriguez, an American; Cirraco
Carreras, the lireman, and three sol
diers were killed. Military Dr. Gon
zales, Aedo, the conductor, the brake
man and 12 private soldiers were
wounded. Captain Dupla and the
sergeant escaped Injury. The bodies
of the engineer and lireman were sent
to Havana for burial. A repair train
lias been sent from Candelria to re
pair Injuries to the line. All the
wounded were sent to Candelria.
Eaefael Rodriguez, 00 years of age, of
Genero, was at the station awaiting
the arrival of the body of Genaro Rod
riguez. The family of the fireman
was also in attendance- Immense
crowds gathered aud escorted the
bodies to the final resting place.
Other reports from the province of
Pinar del Rio announces that Marlel
Rodriguez and 1500 men succeeded in
crossing the trocha and joining the
insurgents in the province of Pinar
del Rio. General Ruls Rivera, it Is
asserted, also succeeded in passing the
trocha, entering Havana province, and
It is claimed he is in charge of insur
gent forces In this proylnce. Since
the death of Aguirre the insurgepts
in Havana province have been with
out a real leader, though they have
been provisionally commanded by
Rafael do Cardinas. It is now ex
pected that an aggressive campaign
will be carried on in the province of
Havana by General Rlyera.
Two nights ago a large fire was ob
served to the east of Havana. So
bright was the blaze that it attracted
general attention. Being late at
night, the horizon seemed one contin
uous line of Are. Nothing was pub
lished about the matter the next day,
but Investigation disclosed the fact
that Aranguere had made another
daring raid in the vicinity of nayana,
burning and looting the town of Bar
rera, near Guanahacoa.
London, Feb. 2. The Madrid cor
respondent of the Standard announces
that the contemplated Cuban pro
gram is to do nothing more than as
sert the willingness of the govern
ment to entertain suggestions for the
reform of the West Indian tariff and
the subsequent improvement of com
mercial relations with the United
States, a question which, it is esti
mated, the government and the cortes
must approach cautiously, both meas
ures being likely to clash with the
Spanish agricultural ana manufactur
ing Interests, as well as the interests
of the powera in matters growing out
of the situation in Cuba and Porto
The correspondent, In conclusion,
announces that it is premature to sup.
pose that the colonial reforms In the
present condition of the colonies can
be so shaped as to permit the adop
tion of the Canadian system Of self
government. Down on Weylcr.
New YoRK,Feb. 2 -A special to the
World from Washington says:
American sugar planters In Cuba at
last have taken a decided stand. On
their demand, Secretary Olney has
cabled to the Madrid goverment that
the grinding of sugar cane on Ameri
can plantations In Cuba must be per
mitted to proceed immediately, or
claimes against Spain for heavy
damages will be filed at the state de
partment. A reply came from Madrid
that Captain-General Weylcr had been
instructed to countermand his order
prohibiting sugar-grinding, and that
the work might begin forthwith. On
the strength of this an agent of the
sugar planters left recently for Cuba
to see General Weylcr, and to start

Hearing that the insurgents had for
tified some heights nearPaez, on the
River Cuanao, north of Cienfuegos,
Weyler sent Colonel Serves with 300
men in small boats to capture the
place and "destroy the forts. In
rounding a sharp bend after proceed
ing up the river some 20 miles, a heavy
musketry lire was opened on them
while a six-pound piece threw shot
and sank several of the boats. The
Spaniard leaped out of their boats,
waded to land and charged the insur
gents. The fight was a fierce one,and
the Spaniards, were finally forced to

Manzanilio reports are that., at 9
o'clock at night on January 18 the In
surgents, assisted by friends, entered
the town of Palmaa Atlas,- 00 miles
from Manzanilio. After plundering
the town and stores, they burned 00
private houses and three wellstocked
dry goods and grocery establishments.
Owing to the unfavorable location of
the fortifications, the soldiers were
unable to fire upon the attacking party

would have been compelled to kill the
peaceful Inhabitants, who were run

gain a refuge at tho fortifications.
Some of the inhabitants tf the town
even joined the insurgents and In this
manner escaped with their lives.
Puerto Principe insurgents have

The result Is the deathknell of the

struggle for Mitchell Is virtually over,

The senate resolution was brought
up in the absence of Senator Carter ,of
Benton, which fact shows that tho
Mltchellltes were afraid of a full vote.
During ;the extended debate the sen
ators on Mr. Mitchell's side were busy
receiving notes from .the outside,
each one of which little messages
regularly brought forth hot retorts
and thrusts at the men who Insisted
that an unconstitutional organization
must not be organized.
The result Is an overwhelming sur
prise to the Mitchell managers, who
were not prepared to be turned down
by so large a vote In the senate.
THE BATTLE BEGUN.
Senator Brownell this morning In
troduced senate resolution No. 19,
providing that tho senate should pro
ceed to nominate candidates for
United States senator and vote upon
the same. President Simon ruled
same out of order, whereupon Brow
nell appealed from the decision of the
chair. Patterson of Marion and John
son seconded the appeal. Driver spoke
in favor of the appeal, stating that he
did not believe the chair had upon
past occasions fairly counted the viva
voce vote but wrongfully and arbitrar
ily. Mulkcy spoke against the appeal
in eloquent terms, stating that senate
had upon several occasions sustained
similar rulings by the President and
that it had this very morning refused
to recognize the organization of the
SOME OP THE SPEECHES.
Patterson of Marlon, next spoke
warmly for the appeal. Driver fol
lowed with further support and offered
$1000 for any who show that the cons
titution required a permanent or regu
lar organization of the legislature be
fore electing a senator. Driver
claimed that only 31 merabeisof the
house have been legally elected, be
cause only that number have qualified.
He arraigned both Gov. Lord and Sec
retary Klncald for their action In this
matter of falling to recognize
the Benson house. He also
Implied that President Simon's
ruling and the hold-up In the house
were una par with the recent South
ern Pacific train hold-up.
Senator Dufur explains his resolu
tion cutting off printing for the house
until It was legally organized, stating
that the intent of his resolution was
simply to cutoff expense until tho
senate should recognize the house.
Senator Dufur gave It as his opinion
that the house was sufficiently organ
ized to electa senator, but perhaps
not sufficiently to legally pass laws.
Brownell spoke for his motion, tak
ing issue with the chatr, stating that
he believed that to sustain his ruling
It would be one of the greatest crimes
against the liberties of the people.
He appealed to senate not to join
hands with Jonathan Bourne and
High Priest Barkley. Hero the chair
demanded that personalities should
notbe brought In, Senator Brownell
then demanded that in the name of
economy for the dear people that
something be done.
Senator Michell spoke most patrio
tically against the appeal, stating
that the 6enate was not trying to act
as a tribunal of iustice.but simply try
ing to act within Us authority.
Reed stated that he came tO this
session with the intention of voting,
for this resolution, but that since
Senator Driver stated that it was
supported by the laws of God. etc., ho
had decided to vote against It.
Patterson of Marion, here read a
letter from Hon, Geo. II. Williams
which stated that If a joint conven
tion Of 46 members of tho Oregon
legislature should meet to elect a sen
ator and a majority of those 40 should
vote for some one man, that man
would be elected. '
Johnson spoke for the appeal, in
which he referred 'to the election of
Senator Dubois, of Idaho, by a legis
lature similarly organized. He further
stated that the house of January 11,
made this resolution lecal. Unon ask.
! ing the chair, Mr.-Simon stated that
tne resolution was out or order until
the second Tuesday after permanent
organization, at Which time he, tho
chair, would yotef for such a resolu
SELLINQ'S WtONQ POINTS.
Selling next obtained tho. door and
stated that the senate did not pretend
to pass upon the qualification of mem
bers of tho house, and presented a tel
egram from J.N. Dolph staling that
two-thirds of the houc was necessary
to effect an organization (Brownell
and Driver interrupted the speaker
with sharp questions.) The speaker
also read a letter from C. B. S. Wood
In which he quoted Gen. Geo. II. Wil
liams stating that not less than forty
can orgauize the house. (Here Driyer
rose to a question of privilege, but
was cut short.) A telegram was also
read from Senator Morgan saying that
without a complete organization of
tho house nb business could be done,
and that no senator could be elected
without such Organization. Senator
Selling wlsheij to resent the state
ment that the.oppositlon were on par
with train robbers; and also that he
could not bo convinced that 31 is a
majority of CO.
Driver again took the floor, and In
sisted that in a state of revolution all
law was null and void, and Insisted
that Inasmuch as chaos now ruled,
any law was good. The speaker was
called down by several senators, ho
having spoken several times.
King arose to ask how .the legisla
ture could meet in joint convention
until the body Is legally organized.
He i showed that while the senate
could not sit as a court to judge the
legality of tho house it could not
be deprived of the privilege of
judging what constitutes a
legislature, and plainly and logic
ally showed that not to sustain the
ruling of the chair would lead to
anarchy. He read the constitution
demanding.lhat two-thirds was neces
sary In both houses to organize a
joint convention, no read the decis
ion of the Kansas supreme court sus
taining the Republicans of that state
when they had a two-third majority
in Kansas legislature, but who were
not recognized by tho executive. Ho
was astonished to find here the sena
tors who had branded his. the Popu
list, party as a band of anarchists,
coming Here ana ovei-naing tue con
stitution for political purposes. The
senator was complimented upon his
most logical speech.
Daly arose stating that the term
"organization" had been passed upon
many times, hence It was not neces
sary foi this body to wrangle over It.
He made the point that the case of
Dubois election was parallel to tho
present case, except that the senate
of Idaho bad not yet effected a tem
porary organization. He claimed that
the only legal organization In tho
house is the temporary organization.
However.ho thought the senate ought
to proceed with its work regardless of
Holt made the significant point that
to adopt this resolution would be to
recognize the Benson house. He re
sented the insinuation that the Popu
lists were responsible for the hold-up,
Inasmuch as the Republicans have a
large majority in that house. lie
made the further point that If
the Populists should assist the Repub
licans to organize the house, they the
Populists would be In a measure res
ponsible for the acts of such Repub
lican organization. This his narty
coula not afford to do.
Johnson maintained that to adont
this resolution would be to recognize
tho Davis house, while Holt thought it
would be to recoguizo the Beuson
house. Hero President Simon made
the pertinent suggestion that If this
resolution should be passed the senate
would not kuow what faction of the
house to meet within joint conven
tion. Gowan stated that his side simply
wished to express its preference for a
senator, and that It would devolve
upon the U. S. senate and not upon
the Oregon legislature to decide the
legality of this vote.
Smith stated that he believed that
the Benson house was not legally or
ganized, He made tho point most

to the election of senator would bo to
recognize tlio uenson nouse, which
fact this senate has already denied.
Ho made his points so clearly and log
ically that only a, partisan could take
tho opposite view. He thoroughly
branded the men wno in tno late elec
tion pointed out Democrats and Pop
ulists as anarchibts by proylng that
they were here making Incendiary,

THE MITCHELL PKOQRAM
for Wednesday Is to call a Joint con
vention at noon and a few senators
will join the Benson house and elect
Mr. Mitchell. Thoy will then give
him the best credentials they can, on
the theory that theic are only 01 legal
members of both houses and 31 will
elect a senator In such a body. It Is
rumored enongh Bensonites will then
withdraw to prevent any legislative
session by breaking the house quorum.
Judge T. A. MoBridc is of tho
opinion that the Mitchell men will
hold a joint convention to morrow,
but will nor undertake to force a vote
unless they can get 46members to go
In. Tho Mitchell Joint convention
will elect Its own presiding officer.
A Good Move. A. B. Hudelson, J.
W. Looney, and E. N. Thomas, of
Jefferson, are In the city to secure If
possible legislation permitting tho
Jelierson institute to town Its prop
erty and endowment fund over to the
public schools. The fund for this In
stitute was all subscribed by early set
tlers of Jefferson, and Its charter was
granted by the territorial legislature
In 1847. Of late years tho building has
been nsed for public school purposes,
and as the school building proper is no
longer fit to use this move is suggested.

$10,000 Offered for a Vote.
Howser Would Rather Hang by the
Neck Than Sell the People,
There Is good evidence that $10,000
was offered for one vote to help organ
ize tho legislature, and an additional
81000 for each vote that could be se
cured in addition to tho first. Hon.
J. J. Howsor, of Sams Valley, Jack'
son county, relates a startling exper
ience that transpired in his bedroom
at the T. L. Davenport boarding
houc on State street this morning
before very many people were about.
At about daylight this morning, la
fact Just a little before day, a
stranger waited on Mr. Howser, a
People's representative from Jackson
county, who was aroused from sleep
with a "proposition to break the
blockade In 'the legislature." The
man who awoke Howser from sleep
sent another man to Howser who
mado him a cash offer for his vote,
ne had the stuff. The money was in
bills, 500 packages, and the man had
not less than $15,000 in his Inside coat
pocket, which he showed to Howser.
no pulled out at least a dozen of
these $500 packages and laid them on
tho bed. Mr. Howser says:
"I saw ot least $12,000."
A Journal" reporter saw the Jack
son county man audi ucked
him: "What argument did they ufo
to you Mr. nowser?
"They said: 'We find it Is in your
power to break this deadlock.
Your constituents do not demand of
you that you hold up this legislature.
You had better consider this proposi
tion. It will put you and your wife
and children in good circumstances."
At this Howser got mad and used
strong language to make tho fellow
quit pressing tho matter. Mr. Bow
ser's reply deserves quotatson In full.
It was as follews:
"Gentlemen, it Is my sincere Judg
ment that I take tho stand that I do,
and I know that my people will en
dorse my work, and to accept this
$10,000 purse would be to betray the
people. I will never sell my constit
uents for money. I'll hang by tho
neck until I am dead before I do
Mr. Howser was in bed. Ho had no
weapon of self-defense. If he had had
a weapon he would have been tempted
to use it.
Tho whole matter was reported at
People's party headquarters this fore
noon. The first man who came was of
medium size, well dressed in a black
suit, dark hair and full beard about
five inches long. Ho carried a loaded
cane. He sent his pal with the
money, a man of about 160 lbs. weight,
about 5 ft. 8 In., light complexion,
smooth moustache, light colored trou
sers, dark coat and vest, silk hat,
black bow tie.
Mr. nowser thought at first it was
an attempt at u fake, but closely eye
ing tho money concluded it was genu
ine and in regulation bank packages,
The two men acted in good faith and
had a perfect understanding with each
other and of Mr. Ilowser's circums
tances. Mr. nowser thinks he saw
one of the men in Salem yesterday and
and can Identify both. They
can also be Identified by another per
son If need be.
The utmost Indignation prevails at
this high-handed effort to bribe a
man, when he was still In bed aud
could not call on anyone to help him.
Mr. Howser Is a young man of 23, the
youngest man In tne legislature, a
good business limn and a member of
the Methodist church; Mr. Howser
Is a member of the order of tho Sons
of Veterans In good standing.
Mr. Howser Is a young man of good
family and the best standing socially
and politically. Ho feels outraged at
what has taken placo and has set ;to
work to Identify tho man who ap
proached him. There Is a first-class
hanging bee in sight if these bold at
