MADRID , Spain ( via Bayonne. Franco ) ,
Jan. 8. ( Now York World Cablegram Spe
cial Telegram. ) The decisive stage Is rapIdly -
Idly approaching for ascertaining the real
drift in the relations between Spain and the
West Indian colonies nnd between Spain and
the United States. The Irauo now rests
entirely with the Madrid government ! an
all the aspects and eventualities of the
question have been considerately , fully and
frankly laid before the duke of Tctuau and
Premier Canovas very lately.
It Is no secret in political and diplo
matic circles in Madrid that the American
government cannot accept the reforms de
creed for Porto Rico , but the United States'
oxccutlvo might induce congress and the
pcoplo of the United States to take them as
a definite formula of what Spain intends
to place on record as her final concessions ,
for the settlement of the Cuban question.
People outside of Spain Jumped at the er
roneous conclusion that the Madrid govern
ment was on the high road lo granting
to the West Indian colonies self-govern
ment , similar to that of Canada and Aus
tralia. Nothing of the kind was ever In
tended , cither by the prcncnt government
or by any Spanish political party. Premier
Canovas only expressed the statement of
the majority of the Spaniards when ho said
recently that Spain could never go so far
In her reforms as to establish a Canadian
Autonomy In the English Benso of the
word was not contemplated by Scnor Se-
gasta as premier and Scnor Abarzuztm us
colonial minister when they requested and
obtained the assent of all the Spanish par-
' tics In January , 1895 , to the famous bill
which Premier Canovan and his minister for
the colonies mode use of In Issuing on New
Year's day In 1S97 decrees reorganizing and
increasing the powers of the governor and
granting only administrative municipal and
provincial reforms to Porto Rico.
ALL SUBJECT TO SPANISH VETO.
In fact under these decrees the munici
pal and provincial councils there will bo
organized on much tbo same lines as the
Spanish provincial councils and municipal
ities , with about the same control over
purely local matters and over that part
of the revenues from taxation destined
for public works , education and strictly
local administration , subject , however , to
the supervision and veto of the superior
authorities and the governor appointed by
Spain. The majority of the insular council
Is lo bo composed of nominees of the crown.
The minority Is to bo elective. Tills council
is not Intended to bo In any way a leglsla-
tlvo body , but on assembly which will bo
consulted in well defined cases and may
express wishes or opinions not at all bind
ing on the government. The Insular coun
cil is not a parliament , but a consulting
assembly , with limited control occr the acts
of the provincial and municipal councils.
Porto Rico will continue to be rcpiesented
In the Spanish Cortes by two senators and
twelve deputies , elected in the Island by a
very restricted franchise.
The Imperial parliament will continue
to discuss and vote legislation , budgets and
tariffs for the Wcat Indies , drawn up and
presented by the minister of the colonies.
All branchec of the civil service , courts or
Justice and customs service will continue to
bo recruited in the mother country. The
army , navy and pollco will remain In the
liandn of the Imperial government , and the
governor will have full control of the local
militia and the volunteers. The Imperial
parliament , above all , will retain power to
regulate the trade and tariffs of the col
onies , whoso treaties of commerce will be ne
gotiated uy tno .Madrid executive.
NOT A LIBERAL MEASURE.
Scnor Abirzuzua's bill never aimed at
more than administrative reforms , though
ho and Fenor Sagasta think Premier Canovaa
might have carried out the jtplrlt of the bill
In a less restrictive manner.
Scnor Abarzuzua's bill was much less lib
eral than the original project presented to
the Cortes In ISO * by Ponor Maurar , which
i contemplated the creating of a wholly clcct-
Y""lvo Insular council , with far morn authority
> over the affairs of the coloney. Hut public
opinion and the opposition , especially the
conservatives , forced Senor Sagasta , when
premier , to withdraw that bill and dlsuiUs
Scnor Maurar from his cabinet , who was re
placed by Scnor Abarzuzua , the author of the
moro restricted measure , which ultimately
passed In the shape of elastic authorization ,
which , to use Senor Abarzuzua's own words
to me. never Implied autonomy like that of
the British colonies.
Both the Cuban and Porto Rlcan autono
mists consulted hero deem this last meas
ure of reform Insufficient and unlikely to
1 satisfy the majority of the West Indiana.
f " " They side with the Spanish liberals and republicans -
publicans In finding fault with the govern
ment for not having at least attempted to
reform the Cuban and Porto Rlcan tariffs
which Senor Sagasta had induced the Cortes
to authorize as far back as 1S9I , with a
view to satisfying the commercial wishes of
the West Indies , and to Improving their
trade with the United States. Tariff re
form , therefore , might have been under
taken apart from ! home rule had the Madrid
government not feared the opposition of the
Catalans , the Bllbacans and other protec
tionists in Spain.ARTHUR

Woylcr knew a fortnight In advance that
tlio filibuster Three Friends would go to
the mouth of the San Juan river , In west
ern Trinidad. A week before the Three
Friends left Florida General Weylcr told mo
there was a gathering of Insurgents In Trini
dad to receive an expedition.
"They will endeavor to carry the arms ami
ammunition on Into the Trinidad moun
tains , " ho Mid to me. "Of course I will bo
ready for them. "
"I hid Inquired of the captain general It
the Insurgents were collecting anywhere , and
ho answered that Spanish ofllccrs of the
upper and well Informed class have always
ridiculed the capacity of the Junta in Non-
York. They regard Its members as children
In the business in which they are engaged ,
asserting that self-interest Is quite as strong
as sentiment and patriotism among them.
Experienced Spaniards assort that had Jose
Marti lived to have directed the Junta , a
different showing would have been made.
Maximo Gomez at last Is obliged to show
himself. I described him aa being In the
wilderness of Najasa , In southeastern Puerto
Principe , on December 10. Oni December 20
Gomez reached his favorite stopping place on
the cattle estate which belongs to the Yznaga
family , located Just eastward of the border
of Santa Clara province. Afterward ho
crossed Into Santa Clara , and reached the
vicinity of Jatibonlco point In the wild re
gion north of the city of Santo Esplrltu , and
It was reported two ilnya ago that Gomez
had collected 1,500 followers and attempted
to capture a Spanish supply train near Or-
roya Blanco ,
Gomez has recently written that he has
abandoned his attempt to tnaKo himself
dictator at the expense of the president ,
Clsneros. His physical condition is bad.
Callxto Garcia is the only ono of tlio
Insurgent leaders who displays activity
that may bo very hurtful to thy Spanish
government. Garcia has appeared nutsi-lo

of Bajamlo , on the road to Santiago do
Cuba. The Spanish garrison w.u only a
small one , and courtiers wcro dis

The government sent five battalions
of Infantry from Manzanll'o ' and
other troops from San Luis and Palma Serl-
ano and other eastward points. Nothing has
been heard as yet as to the result. Garcia
Is operating In a wild and thinly settled part
of Santiago , over 500 miles east of Havana.

CHICAGO , Jan. 8. A dispatch to the
Tribune from Washington says : Positive
statements were made last night from
Spanish legation sources that Gomez , the
Cuban commandcr-ln-chlef , had actually sub
mitted a proposition for peace to Senor
gagasta , In , Madrid , and that the facts have
already been communicated to the junta
here. All that stands In the way. It Is said ,
la the proposed recall of Captain General
Weyler , which the Insurgents Insist shall be
preliminary to all negotiations.
The statements como to the Tribune cor
respondent with great distinctness , but , as
the source is Spanish , there Is an open
suspicion , that the news may bo given out
for the express purpose of Injuring the In
Secretary Qucsada and other Cuban repre
sentatives have all along dcnle J that , the
.Insurgents would accept anything short of
'independence and they profess to bo shocked
and disappointed at the story of weakening
on the part of Gomez. They will not admit
that bo has communicated with them , but
the legation story Is that st letter front , the
Cuban general was received by the junta
December 29 , in which ho says that If
Weylcr li recalled and Martinez Campos
Callcja or General Panda sent In his place
the insurgents will be ready to talk of layIng -

LONDON , Jan. 8. The Standard's Madrid
correspondent eajn : Despite the criticisms of
the opposition pixss , Captain General Wey
lcr has certainly regained favor In official
circles since the Imposing demonstrations
of sympathy by the loyalist clubs and the
commercial and agricultural Interests In Ha

the home government , strongly advising It
to maintain General Weylcr In the chief
command , The government also seems to
be satisfied wth | Woylcr'6 latest report.
It la stated that the proposed Cuban re
forms will bo very extensive , placing all
the services of the island under the direc
tion of the now administrative council , but
retaining in the hands of the homo govern

navy , the Judiciary , taxation and the tar
iffs , as a legal foundation for the Spanish
sovereignty. The councils of both Porto

CHEYENNE , Wyo. , Jan. 8. ( Special. ) A
letter was received hero today by a Chcy-

now a coamUaloncd o Ulcer In tlio Cuban
army. Khrono left here several years ago
and when last heard from was employed as
a civil engineer by a Tucson , -Ariz. . Irrigation
company. He left there last spring , going
direct to Cuba. Khrono was raised as a aol-
dler and held a commission as a lieutenant
In the German army before coming to Amor-
lea. Ho had the reputation when here of
being an expert swordsman and ono of the
most accurate rifle shots In this part of the
state. The letter received from Khrono Is
of a personal nature and docs not glvo many
particulars of the conflict now raging In Cuba.
Ho states , however , that tlio command with
which ho Is connected has EOCII some hard

Lady Scott , accompanied by her daughter ,
Countess Russell , entered the court room at
an early hour. They were both stylishly
dressed In black , and pending the opening
of court walked up and down the corridor ,
the daughter having an arm around her
mother's waist. Both women were painfully
nervous , and Lady Scott was heard to re

I feel the injustice of the way I have been
Justice Hawkins entered the court room
shortly after 11 o'clock. These present
were principally lawyers. There was only
one woman spectator.
Sir Franklin Lockwood , counsel for Earl
Russell , In a brief speech asked that all
ground for doubt as to his lordship's charac

addressing the court. In turn , said that her
ladyship would undertake never to republlsh
the libels and he appealed to the Judge not
to deprive the daughter of her mother's pro
tection. Counsel then asked permission for
his client to make a statement and Justice
Hawkins nodded his consent.
Thereupon Lady Scott read an address
saying that she accepted any punishment
the Judge would give her for the sake of
ho-icst suffering women , believing the men
in the dock , and the dead man Kast , who died
of consumption in Hollowcll , where he was
confined as one of the three defendants , had

Her only fear was that her daughter would

manner. IIo reviewed the case at length
and , as he proceeded , Lady Scott , who wta

When Countess Russell heard the sentence
pronounced she shrieked and her mother ,
Lady Scott , shouted : "There Is not one

Then addressing her daughter apparently ,
she cried : "You said It was Impossible to

Thereupon Justice Hawkins exclaimed : "I
will not allow you to thus address me. "
The court officials promptly removed Lady
Scott , who will bo taken to Wormwood
Scrubbs prison this afternoon.
Cockerton and Aylott , who are two com

GOLD DEMOCRACY'S ' DINNER

GREAT CELEBRATION OF JACKSON DAY
Henry " \VullefNoii Ail lrc ncN ilie
GiicnlN on "Tho Future of Ucinoc-
rncy" SpeeclicN liy Several
CHICAGO , Jan. 8. Representatives of the
gold democracy of Illinois and other states
of the middle west , northwest and south met
nt the Auditorium tonight for the purpose
of celebrating Jackson day. Fully GOO men
were present and the banquet was In many
respects a notable affair of IJs kind. Let
ters were received front President Cleveland ,
Secretary Morton and Senator John M.
Palmer and a largo number of democrats
throughout the country expressing regret
over the Inability of the senders to bo pres
ent In person , and all sent words Indicative
of the utmost confidence in the future of
that branch of the democrat party which
has declared Itself against free silver.
The parlors of the hotel were crowded early
In the evening while a general reception was
held by the gentlemen who were the honored
guests of the evening. Francis B. Peabody
of Chicago was the head of the reception
committee and for over an hour ho waa
busily engaged In presenting Henry Walter-
son , Charles S. Hamlln , General Buckncr and
Jchn P. Irish to tlio-great number of men
who pressed forward to greet them.
The reception lasted until the doors of the
banquet hall wcro thrown open , and at 7
o'clock the enllre company was seated at the
long tables which stretched from end to
end of the room. The decorations were
flowers , greens and flags and they were
there In profusion. Great banks of raies and
carnations were upon the tables and at
various points around the room , whllo the
portraits of Jackson , Jefferson and other
founders of democratic principles and up
holders of democratic faith which hung upon
the walls , were tastefully hung with garlands
and wreaths of roses. Behind the head of
the table at which sat Franklin MacVeagh
the tccstmastcr , was arranged a beautiful
effect wrought by the skillful draping of a
number of American flags. It was over
two hours after the banquet hall was opened
before the menu card had become merely a
list of things that had only been and the
toautmnster rcso to address the assemblage.
FLOW OF SOUL BEGINS.
Mr. MacVcagh congratulated all present ,
"and all true democrats upon this signifi
cant gathering ; because It is a timely tes
timony and distinguished testimony to the
permanence of democratic principles. And
the occasion fits the day. Those whom we
represent have a right to Jackson's day , for
It has been given to them , as It was given to
him , to defend both the fortunes of the
nation and the principles of the democratic
"Tho greatest party In American history , "
he said , "would have ended on the day of
the Chicago platform if there had not been
democrats In this land nay It there had
not been democrats In these middle states
who would not , who could not bo democrats
without democratic principles ; and who
could not so long as they might live be
anything but democrats. "
After reviewing the recent campaign , the
speaker added : "We can harmonize our cur
rency .views Tvllh 'thoso of the republican
party whenever that party , as In the late
campaign , lives according to Its best lights ,
for questions of the currency , which Involve
the hOiior of the country , have never dlvldcd _
real democrats and real republicans. But
when that Is said , all Is said. No man can
bo a protectionist , nnd no democrat can bo
a populist. The recklessness and Insanity of
populism are paralleled by the hcartlcsiness
and the Immorality of protection. And pop
ulism and republicanism both stand for the
paternalism and centralization which democ
racy abhors. Wo are the democratic party
of the past ; wo are the democratic party of
the present ; we are the democratic party &f
the future. "
As Mr. MacVeagh took his scat , Mr. Wat-
tcrson , TV lid was to address the company .on
"Tho Future of Democracy , " rose to his feet.
The ringing cheers that greeted him made It
Impos&iblo for several minutes for the elo
quent Kcntucklan to proceed witli his re
marks. His address was received with en
thusiastic approval. Mr. Wattereon said , In
If Old Hickory were allvo and could look

assume that ho U hero ; that his spirit
hovers over us. and likewise the spirits of
all the. democratic sages , from Jefferson
and Tilden to that bravest of the brave ,
that Incomparable cavalier of the Old Hay
state , who gave up his young life that de
mocracy ml.ht live , on the very threshold
of the Inst battle for honor , country and
truth. Durlnc ono nlglrs at least let us
consecrate this noble theater as a temple

The Kovernment of tlio United States has
no right , constitutional or equitable , to
levy and collect a dollar of taxation excent
for Its own support , and , whenever the
republican party goes to tlio country on
the negation of this proportion , and on
that nlone , It will BO to certain disaster.

the Issue of the public order and of a Round

protection , the father of paternalism and
the Kod-father of populism.

no class , but operating1 exclusively for

quires , and an end of quack doctors mas

Hon. Charles S. Hnmllii , assistant secretary
of the treasury , responded to the toast , "Our
National Administration , " and in this lie re
counted some of the matters of national 1m-
portanco that had been accomplished during
Mr. Cleveland's term. As to Jnckson , whom
they had met to honor , ho said no one was
over more devoted by precept and practice to
what ho believed to bp the people's cause , and
his Ufa was marked by a fearless determina
tion to do what ho conceived to bo his duty.
Ho spoke of John G. Carlisle as "tlio In
tellectual peer of any living man , " who , true
to his chief , our great president , regardless
of personal consequences , flung himself into
the breach In thcl recent conflict and by ) his
Intellectual vigor , his cogent reasoning and
his brilliant oratory , did , perhaps , mora than
any other man to Insure the preservation of
our national honor.
The name of Secretary OIncy was pre
sented as the worthy successor of Clay ,
Webster , Marcy and Sovran ] ,
Speaking of the national democratic party ,
Mr. Hamlln said ft represents liberal , pro
gressive Ideas , as opposed to narrow con
servatism. Its motto Is forward , not back
ward. Its path Is that of progress , " not
The Cleveland administration , Mr. Hamlln
aald , had certainly achieved most notable
success , some of which ho enumerated. "Wo
have confidence that history will applaud
the withdrawal of the treaty of annexation
with Hawaii. The attltudo of the administra
tion toward the Cuban revolt , BO clearly laid
down in the president's recent message to
congress , Is so fresh In your memories that
it need not bo alluded to here. "
The letters of President Cleveland , Secre
tary Morton and Senator John M. Palmer
were greeted with cheers.

Last night the members of the Jacksoniau
club of Omaha met for the sixth tlmo tu
celebrate the anniversary of the great father
of the democracy , whoso name they bear.
The 'banquet was given In the main dining
room at tlui Paxton hotel and fully 200 Ne
braska democrats congregated around the
artistically arrangsd tables and united la
furnishing an amount of audible enthusiasm
that was truly democratic and Inspiring.
\Vllllaiu J. Bryan was the guest of the
evening and the occasion was somewhat In
the nattirci of n tribute to his leadership.
Every allusion to his personality was greeted
with emphatic approval and his brief speech
was liberally interlarded with hearty np-

'but their personality wao still In evidence ,
and the subject of constant and acrid com

hurl hlu anathemas at thu absent ones , and
the moro violent their denunciations the
moro uproarious was the applause that
emphasized the sentiment.
Mr. Bryan and the other prominent demo
crats from out of town arrived during the
afternoon and wcro conducted to the head
quarters of the club on Fifteenth street ,
whcro the preliminary conviviality held
sway. Hero an orchestra discoursed music ,
and a huge punch bowl and a bountiful
mtpply of good cigars conduced to good fel
The 'banquet hour was fixed at 9 o'clock ,
and half an hour earlier the rotunda.of the
Paxlon was congested with expectant demo
crats. At 9:15 : the march to the banquet room
was begun. Dr. A. II. Hippie , the toastmaster -
master of the evening , led the way with Mr.
Ilryan , followed by C. J. Smyth and Hon.
C. F. Cochran of Missouri. Behind them the
members of the club and guests fell In , and *
when they wcro distributed around the ta
bles scarcely a teat was' IcfC vacant.
The dining room bore no decorations , ex
cept the portraits of Bryan , Jackson , Jef
ferson , 'Adlal Steveneon anil olhor party lead
ers , which were hung behind the head of
the table. The tablca were very prettily
dccorate.l with potted zalccs , ferns and

Dr. A. II. Hippie , In his capacity aa toastmaster -

earned it by thu sweat of some other man's1
brow. His reference to the gurst of the

and when ho called him the hero of the re

go down In history ' .vltli that of Andrew
Jackson , the applause was renewed and In
Mr. Bryan was then Introduced to reply
to the toast "Democracy , " and ns ho roEO
to hU feet the banqueters rnso with hint
and cheered and waved their handkerchiefs
with marked enthusiasm. It was sonic ecc-
onfo before Ins could get a chance to speak ,
and then ho roused new liandclapplngs by
declaring the democratic jiarty now stood
for something that was near to the hcartu
of the people. It was not difficult now to
tell the difference between a democrat and
a republican. IIo referred delicately to the
recent upheaval In the Jackpnnlan organ
ization by expressing lit * satisfaction that
for every eeat tliat had been vacated by a
democrat another had been filled by ono who
had been a republican or a populist.
Ho declared that they had been beaten In
tlie last campaign because nome pcoplo had
not known how to vote , and othcnj had not
dnrcd to veto their convictions for fear
their mortgages would bo foreclosed , or their
employment would end. This could not oc
