Everyt.iing Quietatthe Cuban
TROOPS ARE STILL IN HAVANA,
All the Late Cuban News Condensed,
Havana, via Key West, Jan. 21.
The rioters are now -quiet, with the
exception of a dynamite bomb ex
ploded in the Piazza de Colon on Sat
urday which did no harm. The rumors
that the volunteers would revolt
against the government have had no
foundation. Nevertheless, several
generals arrived here from Matanzas
province and frcm Havana province
with additional reinforcements.
About 15,000 men are now located
within the city limits and in the out
skirts. The insurgents, in full view of the
town of Cabanas, province of Pinar
del Rio, carried off a number of oxen
and boldly challenged the garrison to
come outside and light.
Cosme Blanco has not drilled his
regiment, the fifth regiment of volun
teers, since the riots, for fear his men
would hiss him because of his offer to
General Blanco to face the rioters
without a special call to the palace.
Licutenaut Calderon, of the fifth
battalion volunteers, has tendered his
resignation, as a protest against the
shouts at the palace against General
Blanco and autonomy.
The total losses during the seize at
Camp Echuclin, In Manzanillo dis
trict, was 30 killed and 60 wounded.
The insurgent Leader Lunah has at
tacked Santa Cruz del Norte, province
of Pinar del Rio.
Upon the body of Captain Puga,
military commander at Rlncon, this
province, was found a letter signed
by Puga, offering to Insurgent Leader
Hernandez $22,000 and free passage to
the United States If he would surren
der with CO armed followers. Another
letter answering the above was found
addressed to him, saying that If he
continued his attempts to corrurt the
insurgents he would be court-martialed
and shot If captured. As Puga
could not Induce Leader nernandez
to surrender, he began negotiations
withXeader Juan Delgado through
the latter's father, Hernandez hay
ing learned of this, captured and shot
Captain Puga without allowing him
to communicate with Delgado. When
this was known a Spanish force
sailed out and secured the body.
The Insurgents have raided Jaruco,
in Havana province, and without flr
Ing a shot carried away the horses of
the Spanish cavalry squadron, whose
members fled at the sight of the in
surgents and took shelter In the cav
alry headquarters. The Spaniards
will be court-martialed.
During the riot at Havana, General
Blanco made preparations for the
worst and concentrated vast numbers
of troops at Havana. In Cuba street
and on the artillery wharf, batteries
of field artillery were planted in posi
tion to rake the street. All public
buildings along the harbor front from
Plaza d'Arraes to the Punta were
crammed with troops,and large bodies
ofcavairyand infantry were held 1c
reserve in the streets adjacent to Cen
tral Park. It is estimated that;i2,000
troops in the city in addition to the
Last night the reflection of large
fires in caneiields in the direction of
Guanabacoa was elearly noticeable
Setior Mario Gracia, governor of the
province of Santa Clara, lias gone to
Remediosto await, it is said, the
surrender of an insurgent leader
whose name is not given.
It Is not true that the conservative
municipality of Clenfuegos has de
faulted in the sum of 8140,000. The
making of this charge is only a politi
cal move to enable the government to
suspend the municipal authorities and
to appoint autonomists. The money
in question was invested in hospitals
and In defense of the city.
The members of the cabinet will is
sue a manifesto explaining "the sal
ient points of the scheme of autonomy
and its advantages over independ
ence," together with an appeal to tho
insurgents to surrender.
When Senor Govin, minister of tho
interior, landed here last Saturday,
he hastened through the rear entrance
of the custom-house In order to avoid
being hissed by the crowd.
After dynamiting the passenger
train near Dargame, province of Pinar
del Rio, and destroying the engine, as
already cabled, the Insurgents at
tacked the train, killing one passen
ger, a negro, wounding five of the
train escort, and wounding or other
wise injuring 25 passengers.
An expedition landed Monday night
near Trinidad, on tho south coast.
The report that 200 insurgents from
Matanzas have entered this province
near Carenaga de Guananion, Is con
tinued, ns well as the report that ,the
insurgent Brigadier Betancnttrt. with
300 men from Matanzas, has) passed
near San Nicolas.
The insurgents under Leader Au
gustine Cervantes entered Sah Anto
nio de' los Banos and plundered a
store in the outskirts of the town.
Two hundred Insurgenti 'entered
Collsc", this province, and plunderea
The address to th6 queen regent,
signed by Sennr Romero Robledo and
others, is a mild-toned docuuicnt, dis
claiming responsibility for the "In
fraction or the constitution uy the
government's unprecedented action in
changing the government of the
Antilles without tho co-operation of
the cortes." The signers declare that
they arc aware of the dltlicultles sur
rounding the government, but con
sider it their duty to demand that
the cortes be summoned.
Preparing for Tiouble.
Washington, Jan, 21. Up to the
present it has been strenuously denied
that the United Mates has been mak
ing any unusual preparations for
trouble with Spain, but the officials
have ceased to deceive themselves.
It can be accepted as true that sev
eral ships, in addition to those com
posing the North Atlantic squadron,
are to bo held In places where they
will be easily reached by telegraph.
It has been asserted that the com
merce doitroycr Columbia, now laid
up In the ordinary at League Island,
will be put in condition to insure her
departure on a week's notice.
Three other ships are in re
serve on the Atlantic cc ast, the MIn -ncapolls
and Miantomah, both at
League Island, and the monitor Puri
tan, at Norfolk, can take water in less
time than the Columbia.
The gunboat Helena has been or
dered to Lisbon from Gibralter. In
stead of continuing her course to the
Asiatic squadron, she will remain at
Lisbon until further orders.
The cruiser Cincinnati arrived at
Buenos Ayres, yesterday, on her way
to Ulo, where she will be clocked, and
the gunboat Castino lias been ordered
to proceed from Montevideo to Ise
Grande, near Rio.
The orders to both these were is
sued to bring them nearer tp the
United States in preparation for a
quick summons to return home.
There Is the 'best of authority for
the statement that the orders to
these ships are the result of the
serious aspect of the Cuban situa
situation. The Spanish minister nnade plain
his concern during a long call on the
assistant secretary of state this morn
ing. He intimated that It would be
well for both the interests of Spain
and the United States if no signifi
cant naval movements occurred at
this time, nis great fear is that the
Spanisli people may do something rash
if they get the idea that this country
is making unusual preparations.
He Is concerned over tho personal
position of Minister Woodford, be
lieving that demonstrations against
the United States may occur in Mad
rid, and the popular enmity against
Americans may be vented on the
United States legation.
Yokohama, Jan. 21 A licet of nine
warships will leayo in tho course of a
week for Chinese waters, the mikado

Pheasant has gone to sea under
sealed orders. The Leander will leave

refuses absolutely to say where they

men is divided between China and
South America. Wherever it is, tho
admiral must have received reassur
ing news, as it has been decided that
tho Impericuse should not go.
London, Jan. 21. There lias been
made a respooalble statement that tho

Jacksonville, HI., Jan. 21. Wil
liam Jennings Bryan has made his ap-pearancc-as
a witness In tho Draper
murder trial. Upon Bryan's entranco
the audience became excited, and it
was with great difV.culty that order
was maintained. The presence of
two presidential candidates of the
last campaign, General Palmer and
Bryan, was too much for tho specta
tors. Bryan testified that he was in the
same olilce with Draper for four years,
and that he knew his reputation for
honesty and intergrity to bo good. On
cross-examination, the witness ad
mitted that Draper, had a violent
temper, which was easily proyoked.

Crime of a Drink-Crazed Mechanic at New
New Haven, Conn., Jan. 21. Ed
ward Duff, 40 years eld, a mechanic,
shot and killed his wife and mother-in-law,
Mary Muher, at their home
here, after trying to induce his wife
to live with him again. He had been
drinking heavily. When ho called
his wife left the house to avoid him.
He followed and shot her. Then he
leturncd to tho house, and. going to
the room where his wife's mother was
sewing, unconscious of the tragedy,
snot her in the neck ana shoulders,
killing her almost Instantly.
John Rellly, who was lnanadloln
Inir room, met Duff coining from the
sewlngronm with a revolver In his
hand. He asked him what ho had
done, and received as a reply a shot
which gazed his neck. Rellly ran and
Duff took to tho street.
Ho passed over the body of his dead
wife as it lay on the walk. He re
loaded Ills revolver, and, seeing that
the crowd was gathering, walked
briskly down the street for a
block, carrying the revolver exposed
all the time. The news of the mur
der spread rapid'y, and a few minutes
later a patrol wagon with three
olllcrs rushed up. Duff fought like a
tlgir, but was disarmed and locked
Trouble For Klondikers.
Chicago, Jan. 21. Alaska rates aro
proving a source of trouble to the
Western roads, and U. Is likely a
meeting of all roads will bn culled In
the near future to consider them. The
chief trouble now Is the purchasers of
tickets to t-'eattlo cannot be assured of
any definite date of sailing for Alaska
on account of the crowded cjnJItlon
of the steamers and tho few boats
that are available for the tratllc,
One of tho western roads, which
sold Several tickets for Alasica, in
formed the purchasers that a boat
would sail ona certain day and that
they would have no trouble In se
curing passage. When the party
readied the coast they found it im
posslbc for them to get on the boat,
us all available space was taken long
befoie their arrival.
Tho road was then compelled to
keep them in Seattle until tho sailing
of another steamer, a proceeding
that proved very exnenslvo to tho
road. The roads will try to niako
definito arrangements with tho
steamship companies for tho care of
me passengers tticy bring to scattio
and, falling in this, they will sell
tickets to the Pacific coast ports
without any stipulation as to the sail
ing of tho boats.
Goldendale, Wash., Jan. 21. Tho
Bank of Goldendale went out of busi
ness, and posted conspicuously on tho
front door tho following notice to do
posters: "The management of this Institu
tion, having decided to retire from tho
banking business, hereby gives notice
to all local depositors to call at the
side door and withdraw thoir deposits
In full and without delay.
Dated January 20, 1808."
Tho First National bank was
started about ten years ago, and in
1800 went into voluntary liquidation
and was succeeded by tho Rank of
Goldendale. The rotirng of the pres
ent bank leaves Klickitat county
without a bank, which is regretted by
many business men.

WAR SHIPS FOR CHINA.
Port of Kiao Chou is Now German Prop
erty. Victoria. "Jan. 21. Orders have
been received at Esqulmalt by Rear
Admiral Pallister from the admiralty.
Instructing him to have every vessel
in the fleet ready to start for China
on 24 hours notice. Immediately all
was bustle around the dockyards, tho
crew of the different yescls being
busily engaged rcshlng coal and pro
visions on board. Then. came an order
for her majesty's ship Pheasant to
start on her trip across tho Pad lie
today, sue being nearer ready than
the others. By tonight she will be
well out to sea.
Later Instructions were received
for II. M. S. Impcriuso, tho flagship
of the station, to proceed to tho scene
of activity. She will sail Saturday.
It Is not known whether Admiral
Palllscr will accompany her.
It is not likely us the conditions in
the Orient reach a climax that the
other vessels hero will bo ordered
there. The Icarlus Is only a small
vessel and tho Phaeton and Leander,
having Just completed a long voyage,
are in need of some repairs. The
Leander is already in thedrydock.
It Is not known Just where II. M. S.
Partridge Is at present, but she has
probably completed her work at Cocos
island and is coming North, being un
der orders to report at Esqulmalt
Tho torpedo boat destroyer will re
main at Esqulmalt. Tho next order
expected Is to havo tho armament of
tho Empress boats ready to bo shipped
on short notice.
Berlin, Jan. 21. A significant ar
ticle In tho Cologne Gazette asserts
that according to International law,
Kiao Chou Is German property, nnd
an attack upon it would' enable Em
peror William to declare war without,
consulting tho bundesarath.
Tho paper says furthermore that
being leased territory, In a political
sense, it remains as before, foreign
territory. Therefore, commercial and
and customs treaties between cither
China and European states or between
Germany and other nations, havo no
