Havana, May 10.—A manifesto
which Gomez is preparing to issue
will not only review hia own position as
to the payment of the Cuban army, but
probably will direct the forces to dis-
band Its issuance is expected tumor-
row. Colonel Carlos Cerspedes, who is
engaged in the supervision of the copy-
ing of the manifesto, declines to give
any information as to its contents
further than to say that Gomez re-
counts his faithful labors for Cuba, as-
serts that he has no other ambition than
to free Cuba, and calls upon all loyal
Cubans to accept the money given by
the United States and return to work,
in order to show by building up the
country that they are citizens in the
The manifesto will also allu'le, ac-
cording to Cespedes, to the diffinlty re-
garding the surrender of arms and will
say Gomez has arranged with Gover-
nor General Brooke that the mayors of
the various cities shall be repositories
for the same. The manifesto will call
upon all Cubans to display real patiot
ism by laying down their arms and
taking up agricultural implements.
Following its publication, Governor
General Brooke will issue a modified
order eliminating the necessity for par-
ticipation of any Cuban commissioner
in the distribution of the$3,i)60,OO0.
The governor general regards Gomez
as having acted sincerely throughout
and believes his withdrawal from par-
ticipation in th-> distribution and his at-
titude of “friendly inactivity” has been
forced upon him by the desertion of
those generals upon whom he had re-
Members of the late Cuban military
assembly and other discontented per
sous belonging to the new revolution-
ary club styled “Veterans’Association,"
met at Cerro last nigh t and indulged in
a prolonged debate on the question of
tbe Cuban troops surrendering their
arms. One group w*as in favor of en-
trusting the arms to brigade
chiefs, or Cuban municipalities. An-
other group was oppised altogether to
surrendering the arms, saying it might
be necessary to “use them against
American pretensions ”
The meetiug was presided over by
Gener»l Jose Laoref, and attended by
Sangnilly, Andrade. Vidal and Joan Go
rnez. Telegrams from all the provinces
were Had opposing giving up the arms.
The socalled weakness ofjMaximo Gomez
was contrasted with Aguiualdo’s’ patri
otic courage.” No decision was reached.
Such meetings as the one just held at
Cerro will be regarded in a less iufiain
matory community as ominous, and out-
side observers might think Cuba was on
the verge of insurrection Public feel-
ing iu Havana is certainly excited, but
those whose judgment is worth most
consider the agitation superficial and to
Consist merely of phrasings wrhich will
never lead to an overt act
Brooke will go ahead as inoffensively
as possible in tbe disbursement of the
$3,000,000 appropriated for tbe Cuban
troops. This cannot begin, however,
until next week. If the Cubans will
surrender their arms to the municipal-
ities all be well. The American author-
ities will raise no objection.
New York, May 1H—The Heralds
Havana correspondent telegraphs:
"To all appearances the Cubans are
about to make armed manifestations
against the United States and its mode
of government in the island, although
the conservative element still hopes for
peaceful arrangements. The army is
particularly bit'er against Gen. Brooke
The soldiers look upon the exchange of
a gun for $75 as an ignominious transac-
tion. One of Gomez’s prominent officers
said: “Gomez was brought to this city
through the influence of Mr. Porter. He
was told he was wanted in Havana to
help General Brooke to establish a gov-
ernment for the Cubans which would
have no other basis than independence.
He was miserably fooled He has, on
account of his intimacy with the Amer-
ican general, lost his popularity with
the Cubans, who say he has been a
traitor. The Cubans imagine he has
been working for annexation. He will
prove the contrary when he publishes
the letters exchanged between him,
General Brooke and President McKin-
ley. After he has done this tbe general
will probably leave the island.”
An Important I>eci»lon.
San Francisco, May. 16—The Unit
ed States circuit court of appeals today
handed down an opinion which will t>«

societies and other organizations of

preme lydge of the Knights of Pythias.
Tbe plaintiff is the widow of Frank E,

'J he court of appeals in affirming the
judgment of tne lower court holds that
tbe defendant should have proved that
the deceased came to his death with
suicidal intent aud it did not devolve
upon the widow to prove by preponder-
ance of evidence that his death result
ed from the accidental discharge of his
gun. The widow will receive $3,000
The Strike in KHuna*.
Pittsburg. Kan., May 10-There is
nothing new in the strike situation in
this part of the d strict today. The
Western Coal and Mining company’s
mines at Yale aud tbe Kansas and Tex
as mines are working as usual. The
Fleming mines shut down because of the
lack of cars At Weir City Kansas aud
Texas shaft 18 is working but forty men,
and Crowe & Co ’« mines are working
about that number also. These mines
have been practically shut down
since Saturday The men at Kau
sas aud Texas mine No. 23 are ont, but
they are all in favor of working aud only
remain out through the fear of being
stigmatized as * black legs. ” Two him
dred and fifty men reported for work at
the Central Coal aud Coke company
mines here today, and the same compa-
ny’s mines at Soauimon are also work
ing The impression is gaining ground
that the strike will play out iu a few
