IT NEVER REA.CHED HAVANA , The Ex-Spanish Minister's Gallantry Led to His Downfall A Woman In the Employ of the Cnban Junta learned Many of tha Spanish Minister's Sccrots. CHICAGO , Dee. 12. The Chicago Jour nal prints an interview to-day with Senor Carlos Vinccnte de Qucsada y Socarras , cousin of Secretary Quesada of the Cuban junta and son of Genera' Quesada y Aguirawho commandcc part of the Cuban forces during the ten years' war for independence. According to the interview Senor Qucsada claims that the "DeLorae letter" written by tha Spanish minis ter , ridiculing President McKinley , was stolen in the United States and not in Canada. Quesada. * who fought under all of the prominent Cuban leaders and who was present at the death of Maceo , says that DeLoino's gallahtry led to his downfall ; that a woman in the employ of the junta learned many of the Spanish minister's secrets. "There were many parties to the conspiracy which resulted in the theft of the DeLoino letter , " he said. "The junta had worked trusted agents into the employ of the Spanish legation. These clerks kept us posted on all matters which they could , but that was not enough. So it was arranged that a woman was to start up a flirta tion with Senor DeLome and endeavor to gain his confidence. "The woman selected to ensare Do Lome is now in New York. DeLome confided many things to her. " "When Canaiejas came to this coun try he was watched every .minute. Through the influence of friends the junta managed to get a Cuban as a waiter into the hotel where he was stopping. Ho was supposed to be a Venezuelan. As lie spoke Spanish he was naturally assigned to wait on De- Lome. "When the Spanish minister wrote that letter the. junta was promptly informed - formed that a letter , contents un known , had been written to Canaiejas. The letter reached its destination , at the hotel , but it never got to Cauale- jas. The Venezuelan waiter took it out of the package of letters and tui-ned it over to the junta. "The junta sold that letter to a New York paper. It was turned over upon the condition , however , that it should bo supposed to have beeu stolen in Ha vana , so as to avoid any trouble with the postal authorities. Secretary Day saw it before it was published. " About the time of the DeLomo inci dent Carlos de Quesada was in Wash ington in the interest of the junta , passing as a Venezuelan.

MADRID PRESS BITTER , Moved to Exceeding ; Wrath by McKtn- ley's Reference to the Maine. MADRID , Dec. 12. The Imparcial publishes another inflammatory article on the subject of the Maine charges. The paper intimates that the explosion was the outcome of an intense desire "upon the part of certain factions in the United States to see the outbreak of war , which was unpopular with the majority of Americans. " The Imparcial adds : "The partisans of the war realized that something startling was necessary to arouse na tional sentiment it was a remarkable chance. Almost all the Maine's olheers were on board another ship at the time of the catastrophe. Those who charge the Spaniards with being capa ble of such a monstrous act are well capable of committing it themselves. " In conclusion , the Imparcial says : "Spain cannot remain quiet under such an infamous charge. It would be pre ferable to give the world the spectacle of national suicide.

" - - I , The Santiago Commander Speaks On the War With Spain , if -r , - _ _ BEFORE A NEW YORK SOCIETY , IVo Began the TVar With an Army , oa Fapcr , of 80,000 , to Attack the Span ish Soldiers Who , for 430 Yourj , Hail V Been * Known as Stubborn Fighters. NEW YORK , Dec. 12. General Shaf ter , in a speech at a meeting of the New York Genealogical and Biograph ical Society , referred to the war with Spain as "the war which has resulted so gloriously for the land forces of the United States at Santiago. " He adflcd that it was unnecessary to say that the navy had also performsd its work in the most efficient manner "if the ab solute destruction of the enemy was what they were after. " General Shafter then went on to say that the United States began the war with an army ou paper , of 25,000. This army was to attack the Spanish sol diers , who for 400 years had been known as gallant lighters , and for the last 150 years noted for their stxib- bornness in defensive campaigns. The speaker said that the officers of the fleet contended when Cervera's squadron was in the harbor of Santi ago that the city could be taken and the Spanish vessels destroyed in forty- eight hours , bho-ald a force of 10,000 infantry be sent to assist. He said that the army which inarched against the city was as perfect a force as could be found in the world. It consisted practically of the whole regular army of the United States with three regi ments of volunteers , for whom room was found at the last minute on the transports. Speaking of the fight at El Caney , General Sliaftcr says that an officer of the division engaged hero ( General Lawton commanding ) , contended that ho could take the place by 9 o'clock in the morning without fail , and , much against his better judgment , Shafter says , lie allowed him to make the at tempt. Instead of 9 o'clock in tha morning , El Caney was not captured until nearly 5 o'clock in the evening and with loss of life as great as at San Juan hill , greater , indeed , in proportion tion to the number of troops ojtgaged. Proceeding , the speaker said that the army in Cuba had as good a staff of quartermasters and subsistence officers as the world had ever seen. There had been a great coal said about the suffering among the American troops in Cuba. General Shafter said he would not expect his hearers to believe him if ho told them there was no suffering. The more effective the work of an army the greater the amount of suffering that was necessary. But he could say with certainty that there was not ono hour after they landed in Cuba that all the American soldiers did not have bread , meat , sugar and coffee. On one day only half rations of the two last named provisions were given to part of the trooprf , bub the deficiency was made up the next day. There luis been some talk of the Seventy-first , New York and the Second Massachusetts volunteers not standing fire. The only reason for this was the fact that some ot the msa of these two regiments got among the regulars , who were using1 smokeless powder. The volunteers hail the old powder , and the regulars simply would not have them. Every shot fired by a vol unteer brought a hail of bullets from the Spaniards. Thespsakcr then told of the re markable good feeling that existed be tween the American and Spanish troops after the fall of Santiago. In conclusion , he said that he took little credit to himself for the successful re- suit of the campaign. That was duo to the best army ever brought to gether in the United States. If the war had taken the course originally mapped out , ho said , and hostilities had been begun in the autumn , with a great battle between the Americans nud the Spanish army in and around Havana , 50,000 Americans , he declared , would have been lost. 1t LEEDY MAY CALL A SESSION , t a Jlajoilty of legislators to Vote for .1 Kilrond Bill.

At 3:00 : the trap was sprung , and Anderson's body shot downward. The rope parted just inside the knot and his body fell to the cobblestones. A thrill of horror ran through the crowd. Officers and witnesses rushed to the body and snatchad the cap from his head to find blood oozing from the mouth , nose and eyes. A doctor was called , and soon Ander son opened his eves , and , it was said , began to breathe naturally. He was carried , feet foremost , up the stairs to the platform and laid down until a chair was obtained. He was placed in this , but never spoke. Preparations for rehauging him were hurriedly made. The other end of the I'ope was adjusted around his neck. He was raised to n standing position and tue straps again placed on his limbs. While being- supported by the officers the trap was again sprung. la twenty-three minutes life was again pronoiinecd extinct.

Democrats , Ee- publicans and citizens , irrespective of party , assembled in mass meetings in various wards of the city last night and declared themselves unalterably opposed to any street railway legisla tion under the Allen law. Prominent speakers were in attendance anco at all of the meetings. The ward machinery o tha Democratic part } took up the cause , just as the Eepubli can party had a few days previous. Chicago has never -witnessed such a spectacle before , and it is doubtful i : any other city has. Mayor Harrison called for volunteers to heJp him with the fight against the fifty-year franchise ordinance on the proposition : "No franchise extension ordinance of any kind until the Allen law is repealed. " A score of men started out last night distributing white badges , on which were printed a gibbet , from which dangled a noose. The words printed on the badge were "anti-fifty-year steal. " Before the theater crowds reached home these badges were all all over the city. One of the men dis tributing the ribbons said over 200,000 have been printed.

THE TALE : OF A HARDTACK , How It Bronsbt Joy and Grief to Pretty Louisa Kugan , of Sedalla. SEDAMA , Mo. , Dec. 9. It was an army hardtack that brought a season 'of happiness and then , sorrow to pretty Lonisa Kugan , of Sedalia. Kobert J. Brown , Miss Eugan * affianced husband , who deserted his bride at the altar on Monday night , has quite an interesting history. When the war broke out with Spain , Brown was making an enviable record as an insurance agent in San Fran cisco , but he was anxious for a brush with the Dons and joined the regular army. When his regiment passed through Sedalia last May , hundreds of pretty maidens were at the depot to wave tiny flags and cheer the boys in blue. Brown saw Miss Eugan and handed a hardtack upon which was written his name , number of his com pany and regiment , with the request , "write to me. " A correspondence com menced and resulted in an engage ment. Brown was among the sol diers who faced shot and shell at San Juan hill , where he was wounded while charging the Span ish trenches. When he recovered from his wounds he was honor ably discharged for physical disa bility and then came direct to Se dalia , making his home at the Eugan residence. While in the army he be came a slave to drink. He succeeded in hiding his failing from his bride to be , but it led him into using his em ployer's money. Knowing that his shortage with the insurance company was liable to be discovered at any mo ment , he fled the city at the hour hia bride expected to be married to him. * f HE CALLS CORBETPS BLUFF , Sharkey Says He Will Box Pompadour Jim In Any Old Way.
