It is reported that BOO persons were

More news has been obtained abo.u
the condition of affairs at Amatitlan

is only, fourteen miles south of this
city while the latter íb more than 100

Couriers say that earthquake shocks
are stíll being felt at short intervals
in the neighborhook of Quesaltenago.
There has been serious seismic .dis-

population of 6,000 was aug

from jQ[avana to Saptiago to pay
homage to a man they love.
During the voyage the weather
was magnificent and Gen. Pal-
ma's forebodings of seasickness
were not realized.
When thel steamer anchored
in Gibara harbor a salute of 21
guns- greeted General Palma
His face brightened at the scene
before him. How different was
the return to Cuba! He left in
chains and came back with' his
path literally ^trewn with roses,
The harbor was a kalaidescope

ferings of many campaigns
came on board and . embraced
]him. Many were in tears. The
vessel was soon crowded with
members of committees repre-
senting different cities, who
came out in steamers and
launches which were décorated
from stem to stern, from the
mast to the waterline.
After a quarter óf an hour of
informal talk General Palma
and his party were taken ashore
in a launch. It was when he
put his foot on the pier that the
pent up enthusiasm of his com
patriots broke forth in earnest.
Thete were rounds of cheers by
tÉe natives as they crowded
around their president-elect,
which • could have been heard
clear acrbsg the bay. Mayor
hospedes spoke a few words
of welcome and then proposed
"threécheers for the first presi-
dent of the Cuban Republic.''
They were given with a will.
Witii * the'village band, playftig
the Cuban hymn, the procession
was formed to the principal
streets where the president-
elect and the members of the
committee were drawn in á carr
riage by a sc<?re 'bf stalwart

Every place cf vantage along
the route was filled. * Men, wo*
men and children crowded and
pushed to ertbrace and shake
the hands of * the veteran.
Arches had been built across ev-
ery street Which led to the city
hall. Not a house fh all Gibara
was without decoration in some
form. Prom everyone ffew the
flag of Cuba, and from almost
as many Were displayed the flag
of the United States while the

were conspicuous on the Spanish-
