New York. Aug. 14 The mayor of
Havana. Cuba. S. nor Hegumle Alvarex.
who Is at the Union Siiuure hotel. Bays
that the insurrection in Cuba Is not a
serious matter, but t'vit there is danger
ahead of troutl between Spain and
the United Slutes. growing out of the
action of our government In pressing
-Spain to pay the Mora claim at this
time, and of the aid that Americans are
extending -U Cuban agitators and ftl
Ibusterers. S-nor Alvares talked, very
plainly with a reporter of the United
Press who called upon him today. He
said that he had heard nothing in re
gard to the report that Martinez
Campos had resigned and placed no
credit In the rumor. He said he be
lieved that OnmiHis had asked that a
trener.il be sent from Mudrld U assist
him, nnd that the man 'Who Is sent
out will b- placed In charge of all ad
ministration affairs, enabling Campos
to devote himself to operations In the
field. Senor Alvarex then said:
'The ntws about General Campos re
tirement Is like much of the Cuban
news published in this country It Is
manufactured. A largo part of the
storks published here are lies."
When asked about the progress of the
rebellion Senor Alvares eald:
"It is a rising of outlaw lead by for
eigners. The better class of Cubans
having nothing to do with It.
"In the Santiago province the insur
gents are nearly all negroes. iMaceO.
the leader. Is a mulatto; Oomez is a
San Doming. All the other leaders
of the Insurgents are American citizens.
They are foreigners on Cuban soil and
should be shot down. American citi
zens here who are aiding them should
not be allowed to hold meetings, raise
funds and tit up expeditions as they are
The Sonor Do comes Earnest.
Senor Alverez became very earnest at
this point and spoke with emphasis.
He continued: ,
"The people of the United States
should remember that the war In Cuba
is not a war between two nations, and
that they cannot say 'we will be neu
tral." It is a difficulty which one na
tion Is having In Its own family, and
America should keup her hands off.
Americans not only permit foreigners,
but allow their own citizens to conspire
against Spanish territory and Spain is
a friendly nation."
But has not the United States gov
ernment 'by proclamation, and by or
ders to men-of-war and revenue cut
ters, shown their friendship for Spain?"
"Yes. but what good does a man-of-war
anohored at Key West do? None
at all Expeditions are fitted out just
the same and sent under the protection
of the American Hag. Perhaps your
government acts 'because it knows that
Spain Is keeping art account of all the
expeditions; that are sent out, and when
the trouble In Cuba is over will ask
the Unfted States to pay damages.
Your newspapers publish detailed ac
counts of how these expeditions are
fitted out and how they are landed."'
"Are meetings to be held In your
cities, money raised for the avowed
purpose of sending war supplies to
Cuba, and expeditions to be fitted out
and sailed under the American flag
with no redress for Spain? Let me tell
you tWs," added Senor Alvarez, "the
American flag Is being used to cover
crime. Spanish officers are getting
tired of letting expeditions escape be
cause they sai.1 under the American
flag. The day may come when an ofil
cer will no longer "permit a vessel to go
free through respect for the flag.
"Something will happen not to the
flag but to the boat that Is using It,
and there may be trouble between
Spain and the United States.
Objects to the Mora Claim.
"Another thing we do not like," said
Senor Alverez, "Is Insisting that the
Mora claim be paid Just when Spain
needs money for war purposes. The
claim Itself la unjust and should never
be paid. All the arbitrators have de
cided against it. iMora whs never an
American citizen until his .property was
destroyed. It would never have been
pushed at all If aiSpanlsh minister was
not to get a share of It. And why does
not the United States pay claims that
Spain has had ever since Florida was
purchased? It was then agreed that
Spanish residents of Florida who gave
up their property should be reimbursed,
but they have never been paid. It does
not come with good grace for the Unit
ed States to ask Spain to pay a million
and a half now, and the manner In
which the claim has been pressed
makes Spaniards sore.
"The United States does not pay the
award made by the Bering Sea commis
sion and is getting the reputation of
being a had debtor among the nations,
and then demands that Spain pay the
unjust Mora claim and we must do It
at once. All these things made our
blood boll. We expect friendly treat
ment from a friendly nation. Instead
of that we have an Insurrection In
Cuba which was Inspired by Americans
and which would not last a month If
it did not have the aid and encour
agement of people In this country."
Senor Alvarez expects to return to
Havana in fioptember.

MET A HEROES DEATH.
Artist Thomas Movenden Is Killed While
Attempting to Save the Life of a Little
Norrlstown, Pa,, Aug. 14. Thomas
Hovenden, the 'famous artist, was in
stantly killed 'by a railroad train near
here this evening. Mr. Hovenden met
with a hero's death, for It was in at
tempting to save the life of a little
ijlrl Unit he lost his own.
The accident occurred at a grade
crossing on what Is known as the Tren
ton Cut-off of the Pennsylvania rail
road. Mr. Hovenden has a summer
residence In Plymouth township, this
county, and he was returning home
this ewning on a trolley. When the
car reached Its stopping point on the
far side of the railroad track the pas
sengers alighted s usual and prepared
to cross to the trolley car on the other
Besides Mr. Hovenden among the
passengers of the car were Mrs. Clara
Peifer and her 10-year-old daughter,
Itttfoie. A fast freight train was ap
proaching the crossing as the passen
gers of the trolley car alighted. The
little girl did not notice the oncoming
train and she ran ahead of her mother
to cross the tracks. The train bore
rapidly down and the engineer blew his
whistle freely when he saw the little
figure standing 'bet ween the rails. The
child seemed to become confused and
awaited her coming death without at
tempting to avoid it. Mr. Hovenden
rushed forward and snatched the child
up in his arms. Before he could make
the leap that would have saved them
both, the pilot of the engine struck Mr.
Hovenden and hurled him across the
track with terrlble'force. The engineer
stopped his train and he and the fire
man ran to where Mr. Hovenden and
the little girl were lying side by side.
The man was dead and the child died
as she was raised from the ground.
Thomaa Hovenden was one of the
leading artists that America has pro
duced. He was still In comparative
prime of his intellectual vigor and ar
tistic skill, being but 59 years of age.
His best known painting, "Breaking
Home Ties" ha been engraved prob
ably more than the work of any other
American artist, and Is a familiar ob
ject of thousands of homes In the
United States. The painting was one
of the most notaible of the American
groups at the World's fair. Mr. Hoven
den leaves a widow, but no children.

CHANCE FffiTTBE FARMER
Europe Ready to Take Amerlcia Live
SECRETARY NORTON'S REPORT
Cattle in Prime Condition Will Flad
Ready Sale in England-Horses
Meed Not Be Canned for Sale
ia Foreign Markets.
Washington. Aug. 14. "If the Ameri
can farmer .would study the demands
and condition of the foreign market and
devote less attention to politics his con
dition would be greatly Improved."
Secretary Morton, of the agricultural
department, advanced this proposition
today as a result of his conversation
a few hours earlier with Sam Degcan,
of Chicago. Mr. Degean hus Just re
turned to the United States from a trip
to England, to which country he car
ried, a month ago, a consignment of
308 American beeves for the British
'market. He reported to Secretary 'Mor
ton 'that the animals proved to be good
sailors; that none of the number were
lost on the voyage; and that they all
arrived at Liverpool In better condition
than when they left this country. The
average price paid for the 308 cattle
was $97.58 each. The ready sale, Secre
tary Morton ways, was due to the fact
that the cattle were not only In prime
condition, but that they were of a qual
ity 'which the English market demands.
He believes, therefore, that if the Amer
ican farmer will study to acquaint him
self with what the British and (Verman
and other European consumers of
American products want, they will not
only And a quick but a mure lucrative
market in those countries us well.
A case in point, the secretary con
tinued, is found in the shipment last
year of American bacon to the Vnited
Kingdom. Upon its arrival there It
was .brought into competition with
Danish bacon. While the price obtained
for the latter commodity was $14.18 a
hundredweight, that obtained for the
American bacon was only $9.72. In
other words, the secretary argues. If the
American bacon exported last year for
sale in the British market had been as
well adapted to the tastes of the Brit
ish consumers as the Danish, it would
have realized $28,192,500, Instead of the
$19,357,376 which it actually did realize.
Horses Also in Demand.
Upon the subject of (horses. Secretary
Morton also grows eloquent. He as
serts that there is a growing demand
In England Cor American horses. 'Dur
ing the first nine months of last year
the English market took 2.811 American
driving horses, at an average price of
$139 a head. A sound, light draft horse
In good condition of the size and weight
adapted to omnibus work In cities will
generally 'bring In London or Liverpool
$150. Here, (again. Secretary Morton
Insists the need of the purchasers must
be consulted, and if this 'be done, a
largely Increased demand for American
hrwses will follow. , ..
Secretary !rrtnn mad May a com
parative estimate of the shipments of
American cattle to Europe for the first
nix months of this year with those of
last year. He finds, to his surprise, an
enormous decreaso ifor this year. Tn
1894 there was shipped to Europe 228,333
head of cattle for the first bIx months
of the year, and this year, for the same
period, the shipments have been, but
Secretary Morton does not attribute
this falling off to any project against
American cattle, but believes that tt Is
due to. the fact that the scarcity of the
corn crop has resulted in a poor condi
tion of cattle generally, and conse
quent Inability of 'being satisfactorily
disposed of In a foreign market.

Desperados at Washington Are Treated
to on Exhibition of tho Kfflcaoy of
Ellensburg, Wash., Aug. 14. At an
early hour this morning, Charles Vin
cent, who shot Mike Kohlopp In a
drunken brawl, Sunday, was lynched.
A large mob gathered at midnight and
attacked the Jail a'bout 1 o'clock. The
sheriff made resistance, hut had a small
force of men and was overpowered.
Vincent was hanged to a railroad
bridge and his body shot full of holes.
His hearing was to have taken place
today. Last night John Burglin, who
was stabbed by Vincent's father in the
same row, died from his wounds.
Young Vincent had served time in the
Oregon penitentiary for burg'lary.
.Within an hour after the younger
Vincent was hanged, .his father was
also taken from the Jail and hanged be
side him. Sheriff Stinson made a strong
effort to save the men, but the mob
was too strong for him. The Jail is a
weak affair, and there was no trouble
In gaining access to It, but the men
were confined In steel cages, which gave
the mob a good deal of trouble In open
ing. The Vincents made no fight, be
ing apparently overcome with fear.
Some of tthe most prominent citizens in
town participated In the lynching.
A few were masked, but the majority
made no attempt to disguise them
selves. There has been a good deal of
lawlessness In the neighborhood for the
past year and It was the general be
lief that a sharp lesson wjs needed by
the desperate characters who had taken
up their quarters In town. The civil
authorities have not yet taken any ac
tion with regard to the lynching.

ment for the surrender of the conces
sion waa made with the Interfering
European powers, who contented them
selves with securing Japan's promise to
keep off the Chinese mainland, leaving
Japan to arrange with China as to the
amount of Indemnity and to provide for
Its collection. China is now showing a
disposition to take advantage of the
attitude of Russia, France and Ger
many. Victoria, B. C Aug. 14. The steamer

Senator Marion Butler Makes a Bitter
Attack on' the President-Calls Him
Hireling of Gold Bugs.
Raleigh, N. C, lAug. 14. Senator
Marion Butler, In his speech at Con
cord, made one ot the severest attacks
on President Cleveland ever heard in
North Carolina, die said:
The man who puts party above prin
ciple Is the best tool the gold bugs
have, and the devil never had a better
servant than the gold bug. Every bond
this government owes England or any
other country or Individual Is payable
in gold or silver, at the option of the
government, and It says so on the face
of the bond. Yet Cleveland is going to
England to get gold when he could pay
bonds in silver. He does not pay them
In silver because he Is a hireling ot the
gold bugs. 1 charge It here, and I'll
charge It on the floor of the United
States If he sends down his army after
me for eaying It. If you had an honest
man for president he could make times
easier In ten days by calling congrese
together to furnish relief, it ia not
enough to send honest men to congress.
We will never see better times till we
drive traitors out of the white house
and get an honest free silver man for
Senator 'Butler Is here tonight presid
ing at a conference of Populists, among
whom are State Treasurer North and
Congressmen Shueford and Stroud.
