ITH an unpardonable
lack of tact or a grew
some attempt at a
sinister piece of hu
mor. Gen. Valeriana
Weyler. the former
Spanish captain gen
eral of Cuba, who
gained for himself
the unenviable title
of "butcher." has al
lowed the publishers
to print the title of
the sensational book
in which he attempts to defend his
onduct while the representative of
the Spanish crown on that island,
(My Command in Cuba)
in letters of gory scarlet on a pa
per of livid gray.
Whatever the motive may have
been that prompted such a choice,
that bloody "eye catcher" of a line
fitly symbolizes the man and the
work which caused so many years
of discontent in Cuba. Weyler has
been on trial before public opinion
for butchering his
enemies instead of
llghitng them; and
be Haunts in our
faces the ugly stains
that show where he
wiped oft his knife.

This book will cause him to be cursed the length

A perusal ol the book fails to prove that Wev

A fascinating tjpe. after all. for the observer
b!e.ssed with the sense of historv ; just imagine
what a Weyler would have developed into if he
had not been born some 500 years too late; clad
iu steel, ho had been riding a caparisoned mount,
or. if he had been allowed to rauge over Europe
during the Thirty Years war!
General Weyler's style is very trying: even
his proclamations vainlv modeled after Napoleon
l.s oratorical gems, rarely sound the note that
makes a peoplo or an army vibrate. His rela
tions of the Cuban campaign with all the facts,
figures, names recorded in haphazard fashion
day by day, is well nigh unreadable.
But the documents he publishes In support of
his thesis (some of them of a confidential char
acter and which must have been secured through
"diplomatic means") make it well worth while
wading through an otherwise dull, shapeless and
indigestible piece cf writing.
First of all we are made to realize how hope
less the plight of the Spanish commanders had
become, in the island when Weyler took the situ
ation in hand; the many generals who preceded
him had been losing ground from day to la :
their cables to the Spanish government gave
information of a pessimistic character of which
the public and the press were seldom apprised;
their confidential coi respondence betrayed heart
i ending facts, more than once poor Gen. Marti
nez Campos had humbly confessed himself beat
en, while the cabinet led the Spanish nation to
believe that the war was practically over.
Weyler himself, when placed in command of
:he Cuban army, was not even siven what he was
entitled to. an honest account of the situation.
"When I landed in Cuba." he writes. "I did
not oven suspect the terrible conditions that pre
vailed in the island. 1 did not knot, anvthing

weapons defenseless islanders, and Maximo Go
mez in his '.Memoires confesses to having shot
personally a man he had sentenced to death, a
deed which I call willful murder. And still that
Individual presumes to call me i?sass-u. "
As his authority for the foregoing statement
General Weyler not only quotes extracts !rom the
Cuban papers, but appends a proclamation of
Maceo. Gomez's lieutenant, to his bands.
"Comrades in Arms: Destroy, destroy every
thing, day and night; to blow up bridges, to derail
trains, to burn up villages and sugar mills, to
annihilate Cuba is the only way to defeat our ene
mies. We have net to account for our conduct
to anyone. Diplomacy, public opinion and history
don't matter. It would be sheer Insanity to seek
the laurels of the battlefield, to bear the fire of
the enemy's artillery and contribute to the glory
of the Spanish commanders. The essential thing
is to convince Spain that Cuba will b? but a heap
of ruins. What compensation will she receive
then for the sacrifice entailed by the campaign?
We must burn and mzf everything It would be
folly to fight as thr.ush we were an Europ-an
army. v liere rit'es are of
do the work.
The only way to subdue such bloodthirsty, des
perate pirates was to adopt their own tactics. The
Insurgent, of their own admission, never gave
nor accepted battle, but harassed the regulars anil
destroyed their sources of supply. "Concentra
tion" seemed to be the only solution of the prob
lem, for the wives and children of the insurgents
crave them constant aid and kept them informed
of every movement of ihe Spanish regiments.
Says General Weyler:
"Of all the measures I took the most bitterly critlsized was the
'concentration,' which saved my troops from being uselessly deci
mated and prevented the landing of arms and munitions consigned
to the enemy. I need not defend that system. Whoever has a
smattering of the history of modern wars knows that it was cop
led by the English in the Transvaal and the -Americans in the
Philippines, a fact most flattering to my pride as a general.
"If individuals were sometimes summarily shot under my gen
eralship, as it happens in the course of every war. they were
put to death in obedience to the laws and regulations, never for
the mere reason that they were insurgents. I pardoned those who
returned to the fold, and showed much clemency to all those who
came to me, however black their past may have been."
It is a matter of regret that General Weyler should not have
deemed it advisable to volunteer more information as to the
organization of the concentration camps. He says that one pound
of meat and a quarter of a pound of rice were allowed to every
Individual over fourteen, and one-half that ration to children.
which seems quite
sufficient under the
circumstances. A
few paragraphs,
however, couched in
bis blunt, soldierly
style, setting at
naught the terrible
charges preferred
against him la con
nection with that
stern system ot war
fare would have
been interesting,
but they were lack
ing. His silence
amounts to a confes
sion of guilt. He
makes a weak at
tempt at explaining
;uat the wives and
children of insur
gents were not "con
centratcd." but
obliged to betake
themselves where
the head of the fam
ily was supposed to
be found. This Is
worse yet, for one
can conceive the ap
palling abuses which
such an order ema
nating from the gen
eral in chief must
have countenanced
and justified. As the
revolutionary bands
were constantly
Bioving from east to
west and from west
to cast and could
not be located with
any certainty, what
an existence must
have been that of
families whose men were not serving in the ranks
or the regular army. Refused army ratious. com
pelled to roam from one devastated village to
a burnt down hamlet, they could uot but succumb
to hunger and exhaustion.
Had Weyler ben less brutally honest, he
would have om:tt-d such a damaging admission.
I'p to this day we have had books of many
kinds dealing with the Cuban war; pamphlets
put iiita by the insurgents and notoriously unfair
to Spain; Spanisn publications which misrepre
sented gro-slv the attitude of the United States;
articits in European newspapers almost unani
mously censuring the Americans for "robbing"
Spain of her roh.ny.
Now. hciviwr. we have the ficts presented
almost without any comments and certainly with
out mb"!lii:.:::i.:i: by a Spaniard who loves his
country and frankly detests the Americans.
On"; r ticc he registers a protest against
the .--.ate's drc&ioii concerning the recognition

directed against !iin in American paper.

He complains that in March. ISl'fi. when he
bad the .situation well under control, the senate
.l the Cnited States interfered mot unfairly, for
it leeognrzcd th belligerency of the insurgents,
th-rebv giving then! new courage.
Tiii.'. is icr-i. convincing than the majority of
his arguments, for if we ompare dates we find
ietie-s in which h admits his failure to stop the
jfprcs-s rf tii.- iiiourrecticn.
His .it charge against the United States
if contained in the following paragraph, which
is too vague to be taken as seriously as some
other statements cf his:
"The United States were against everything
that would bring about a termination of the war
American citizens held several millions worth of
Cuban bonds. Issued with the provision that the
inland would pass under the domination of the
United States ten years after Cuba would have
separated herself from Spain. The Yankees saw
that vvjth the pace I set the much-longed-for inde
pendence of Cuba and its corollary, the annexa
tion thereof, was becoming a more and more re
mote possibility. Hut there was no reason why
tbe peninsula shcnld have robbed all the gossip
which originated in America."
But on the whole the picture his letters and
reports, as well as the letters of Martinez Cam
pos he publishes, present to our eyes of Cuba in
the ytnrs preceding the Maine incident would
have justified any nation, near or remote, in inter
vening U.r the sake or humanity; a population
unanimous in its desire 'for independence; a
bloody war which could only lead to an ephem
eral peace and at best would have left the island
a dreary wast for years to come; the rights of
foreign land owners and investors trampled un
der foot; all this horror had to be stopped.

Henry Dorman Is the man and als

he Is called, was born January 10. 1799.

ben county. New York, at that time on
the western frontier. When he was
born there was not a sulphur match in
existence. Washington was still alive
and when Abraham Lincoln was born
Uncle Henry was a schoolboy of eight.
Before the first mile of railroad was
laid he was a young married man with
children about his fireside.
For years the people of southeast
Missouri looked upon Uncle Henry as
a very old man. But they were not
prepared for the announcement made
a short time ago by the old man's rel
atives that he was the oldest man in
tho nation. The relatives had conduct
ed a pretty thorough examination of
the facts on the subject and they feel
warranted In the assertion that Henry
Dorman can show records to prove a
greater age than any other man in
the Jnitcd States. Some men assert
that their years exceed those of Uncle
Henry, but they cannot show the
proofs. Host of these are negroes who
do not really know how old they are.
Uncle Henry bears the great burden
of 111 years well upon his sturdy
Ehouiders. His thick, short figure is
bent with the weight of a century, hia
hair Is thin and gray, and time has left
its indelible traces In the furrows ol
his face. His body still looks fairly
strong. His eyes still beam forth fire
from under his heavy lashes, and now
and then they show a glint or humor,
which proves that the old man. in spite
of his advanced age. gets enjoyment
out of living.
A visitor went to the Dorman home
a short time ago. The house on the
old farm is old and small, but it is
well kept up by the old man. his aged
daughter-in-law and his aged grandson.
All in the Dorman household are old,
though they represent three genera
tions. Hattie Dorman. the daughter-
in-law. welcomed the visitor, and said
that Uncle Henry was out "choreing
around" some place. In a few minutes
tho bent old man came in and extend
ed a horny and wrinkled hand. The
hand was his left.
"You'll have to take my left. he
explained, "because my right Is not fit
to be shown. I got it shot at tbe bat
tle of Yellow Tavern In Virginia, just
before .he close of the war." And the
old man showed the Injured member
from which two fingers were miss
ing. "Uncle ilenry" never took any care
Rt himself in his youth, and it was ow
ing to no design of his own that he ha3
lived to such a ripe old age.
"I guess the Lord ju?t meant me to
live long." exclaimed Uncle Henry, j
"for 1 never took any kind of f-.ire of I
myself. Xcne of my family yer lived j
long, cither, and when I wa. thirteen
I was an orphan. That nr-ant that !
had to get out and make my vv?y in

Caring tor Zone's Health
The United States Is Taking Paternal
Care cf the People Who Are
in Panama.
Povrn in the Panama canal zone the
Vnited States government is taking
the most paternal sort of care of the
population, and the experiment is
working well, according to informa
tion received In Washington. Whether
it would work so ,well with a popula
tion of millions scatteied over a big
continent as it does with a population
of less than 50,000. confined to the
small zone strip, is a question, but
some of the facts are of interest.
The people of the zone live under
strict supervision. Everyone knows
about the sanitary work of Colonel
Gorgas and his big corps of assistants.
They have drained swamps, killed
(mosquitoes, screened houses and
cleaned up the back yards as well as
tne streets, much to the disgust of
the natives, who thought that this was
an unnecessary, if not an unholy, prac
tise. But the supervision does not stop
there. All the food is inspected, and,
in spite of the distance from the
Slates and the troable and cost of re
frigeration and the expenses of trans
portation and loss in a tronicai cli
mate, the prices are actually lower in
most cases than they are in Washing
ton. The department of agriculture has
been called into service In connection
with the food, and, in addition to car
rying out the provisions of the pure
food and drug act that obtains In this
country. Uiere is i special Inspection
of all foodstuffs intended for the zone
with the result that the residents of
that strip come near getting what they
pay for and pay less for it than if they
were living at home in the land of the
more or less free.
Not only is marriaee .a nmht t...
it's on a very slim margin.
New York. Two days after leaving
Barbadoes the British steamship Dea
l's, In from Buenos Ayrcs. sighted a
sinking sloop flying signals of distress,
which turned out to be the little Sun
light, a wandering cj-rgo carrier be
tween the islands of Antigua and Bar
badoes. She lay helpless with her master
and her crew of five flat on the decks.
There was no water and no food In
sight. When the men had been hoist
ed aboard tho steamer and revived.
Capt J. Frank, owner of the Sun
light, said that he ran into a fog a
few hours out of Antigua, had lost
his bearings and for thirteen days he
and his crew had been living on vine
gar and sugar. How long they had
been unconscious before the Ikalis
bore down on them he did not know.
As the fog came on, the sloop began
to take water and the crew worked at
the pumps until exhausted. Distress
signals were set after a storm washed
their food and water overboard and
for nearly two weeks their sole sus
tenance was sugar saturated with
vinegar from a barrel which had been
lashed fast.
When the storm cleared it was
found that the compass had gone witfc
the provisions, and the crew pumped
and sailed recklessly until, one by one,
they were overcome by exertion and
starvation and each, in his turn
stretched himself out on the deck tc
die Captain Frank was the last mas
to give in.
When the rescued men had been re
freshed they Insisted on returning te
the Sunlight, which had been kept In
sight. Accordingly they were puj
aboard with water and provisions, but
while the Ikalis was bidding them
adieu, they called for help. The Sun
light was sinking. The Ikalia took
them off again, the Sunlight was aban
doned and the shipwrecked men were
brought to this port
