M \TA\ZAS. Culxi ( Via Key West ) , Oct ,
IS Tlio business element here. In Havana
and eliiewher ? scorns to have arrived at tha
conclusion that tlic .Madrid government cannot
end Hiovir 0:1 : the basis of autonomy to
Cuba , as there arc not enough loyalists among
tlio autonomists to hold riuhllc olllce. At
least that Is the claim tlic conservative
Spaniards make. In addition , tlio latter ex
press the liollef that the autonomists , even If
they were plajod In power , would not preserve
peace and protect life and property from the
lawless elements. In view of this condition
of affairs a number of Important merchants
nnd sugar planters of Spanish origin , In con
junction with Bcvcial Cubans of tiroinlnenco ,
have been ln.ldlng secret meetings and cor
responding with people In various parts of the
Island with tlio object of ascertaining the
views of the commercial and planting com
munity In 1'lnar del Hlo , Havana , Matanzas
nnd Santa Clara provinces , as to the future
for Cuba most likely to further their In
terests and those of the Island In general.
It Is expeo'ed that the majority of the replica
will lie favoiablo to annexation of Cuba
tu thu United States , as the Washington
government alone , apixircntly , Is able to
guiiranleo pcare in Cuba and the protection
of life and property.
Aa soon as It Is ascertained that the senti
ment of the persona appealed to Is In favor
of annexation u committee will be sent to the
United States with Instructions to lay the
oifio of Cuba clearly before the business
men of prominence In the United States and
lisle the latter to unite with the business men
of Cuba In a petition to the Washington
government asking the United States , In view
er the failure of the conservatives to suppress
the insurrection by force of arms and pointIng -
Ing out the Impossibility of the liberals endIng -
Ing the war by establishing an autonomous
form of gave iiinent to bring about the an-
ne.xutlon of Cuba to the Unite : ! States.
The plup of Senor Sagasto , the now Span
ish minister , to give nutomomy to Cuba , far
from giving satisfaction hero , has greatly
Increased 'tho feeling of discontent. Tut1
aiuonomlht party , It Is pointed out , Is only
In name , the actual majority of the uulono-
mls's being In the Insurgent ranks , and with
the exception possibly of Sruor Montero and
a few other prominent autonomists , the
masses of that party ru In sympathy with
the Insurgents. Consequently It will be seen
the Spanish government , which bus con
sulted SenoiMcntero on the mibjcct. Is Hud-
Ing great dllliculty In obtaining even the
suggestion of names of autonomists to till
thu otllces for an autonomist farm of gov
ernment. It would be Imprudent , It Is
added , to give such olllccrf to the party
known as thu reformists ; as thu
more. inl'iicntiul ' Spaniards hate them
and the adoption of such a
polley would possibly mean rioting and
oven worje. IJesldes , the masses of the
resident Upinlards are strongly anti-autono
mists and there Is little or no prospect of
making them change their minds. Itecogniz-
Ing tl > fi j > IIlculty of the task before Senor
SagitjNTu Is ciot astonishing that the busi
ness community In Cuba Is exchanging
views on the subject of annexation to the
United States , especially as a general up
rising of Hie Spanish element Is feared If the
Spanish government persists In pushing Its
autonomist pulley , business men believing
that autonomy Is only the II rat step toward
Indepoml. nee In Cuba , and the feeling of the
commercial classes being that annexation
to the United States and the consequent
safeguards tc life"1 and property IK far prefer
able to the establishment of a new republic
im Cuba.
The city of Dayamo , one of the most Im
portant In the province of Santiago do Cuba ,
lias been quietly abandoned recently , Its In
habitants moving , as a rule , to Vegultas ,
fearing a repetition at Hayaino of the in
surgent raid upon Victoria do las Tunas.
It is said bore that some very warm
cable messages were exchanged between
General Wcyler and members of the Sagasta
cabinet during the first days In ofllco of that
inlnls try.
The recent release of a largo number of
.political prisoners from the different Span
ish penal settlements was due to the dls-
IKUSI experienced In certain Spanish circles
bore at thn extreme severity exercised to
ward them , but It Is not believed that tha
Spanish government Inlands to grant general -
oral amnesty.
Among the newspapers hero there Is con
siderable difference of opinion as to the
policy which should bo adopted by Svaln to
ward Cuba. The IMarlo Do M Marina , In on
editorial just ( inbllshed , sustained the policy
of utitono'iiy and credited Senor Sagasta with
inaugurating It.
El Pals , organ of the autonomist party , In
reply , held that the autonomist cxirty favored
by Seno.Sagasta was what the autonomists
In Cuba had been advocating tor the last nine
teen years , and therefore , the premier could
not bo credited with having Inaugurated it.
At the rame time , Bl Pals Intimated that
Senor Sagasta was really only following thu
policy adopted by the late premier , Canovas
del Castillo , and that the Cubans , therefore ,
were moro Indebted to Castillo than Sagasta
In til In matter.
La Lueha , in an editorial headed "Auton
omy for the Autonomists , " claimed that no
party had more right tti Inaiigurato autonomy
than the autonomists themselves , who had
advocated and defended the policy of au
tonomy for the past nineteen years and who
had remained firm to their convictions In
spite of everything , preferring complete dis
appearance to supporting the Insurgents , If
tlui latter triumphed. At the same time La
Lucha protested against thu reformists being
allowed to take a hand In thu autonomist gov
ernment of Cuba , Insisting that the loyal
autonomists und conservatives should alone
liavu this honor , adding :
"In Cuba there exist In reality only two
parties , thu autonomists and the conserva
tives. The latter represent the wealth of
thn country more than they represent a po
litical party , and they also represent the
sovereignty of Spain and will assist thn
Spanlfih _ government hi every way to pacify
the Island , and are desirous of enabling the
government at Madrid to proclaim to the
world that the so\vr 'ignty of Spain In Cuba
does not depend on bayonets alone , but upon
thu 300.000 Spanish residents In Cuba wlio
represent the wealth of that Island. They
nro also desirous of being able to point to
the fact that the autonomists uru able to
govern the Island , nnd that Spain's army
and navy are only auxiliaries to that gov
ernment for the purpose of preserving order
and maintaining the tranquillity of the
Island. "

HAVANA , Oct. IS. The gunboat Maria
Crlstlna , which left this port yesterday for
thu scene of the wreck of the coasting
tearner Triton , bound from Havana to
Hahli Honda. Plnar del Hlo , which sank
yesterday morning between Dominica and
Marlel , has returned , accompanied by the
tug boat Suale , which went with her. The
two vessels arrived here at I o'clock this
afternoon , the gunboat having on board
seventeen and the tug boat twenty-five of
the members of the lost ship's company , of
whom thirteen are civilians and tha re
malmler soldiers. The whereabouts of the
others of the company Is unknown. The
Triton struck the rock during a heavy rain
storm. Its cargo shifted and fifteen min
utes later It sunk In 120 fathoms of water.
A scene of tenlblu confusluu und panic
ensued as soon as the passenger * realized the
msinlim of the crush. In a wild HtruRgle
they rushed at boats , The first boat that
was lowered capsized Immediately and all of
its occupants were drowned In the whirling
waters , The next was struck by an enor-
jnous wave and turned over drowning
twenty , but the frill craft righted again
ami eight who hid been thrown out re
gained It.
Some were good swimmers and kept them
selves afloat for hours , others floated about
for twenty-four hours on planks. Four
soldiers on planks , whom the strong cur
rents carried cast of Havana , opposite Moro
castle , were saved this morning by a pilot going toward Cardenas. They declare
that last evening there were many others
near them on planks , but when this morn
ing cimo all these had disappeared. Some
of them probably became food for sharks.
These who were rescued tell heartrending
stories of the scents during the terrible
quarter of an hour before the Triton sank.
An army captain , his wife and daughter
wont down together , locked In a last cm-
brace. A mother with twins , 15 months
old , drifted helplessly away on the crest
of a great wave. All the other' women and
children were drowned.
Just as the Triton was sinking Captain
Illcardo , Its commander , committed suicide
by shooting himself with his revolver. It
la Impossible to glvo the exact number of
those who were lost , but It is estimated
that there were no fewer than 150. No pas
senger list has been found.
The consignee says that the vessel , which
carried a general cargo , was not Insured.
The forty-two rescued persons suffered se
verely from the exposure. All of them
were moro or less bruised and many of them
badly wounded.

LONDON . Oct. 18. The afternoon papers
today echo the opinions of the morning newspapers -
papers In congratulating the government
upon "finally disposing of the bimetallic
sf-arc , " and expressing regret that It should
"ever even have seemed to receive support
lit high quarters. " Hugh C. Smith , gov
ernor of the Ikink of England , said today tea
a representative of the Associated Press :
"The bank Is a private company without any
government control nnd Is not responsible
to the government , except In the terms of Its
charier. The * government cannot Issue any
orders relative to the bank's reserves. At
the same time the government Is the bank's
best customer , and the court of governors ,
being composed of law-abiding citizens ,
whenever the government makes a request
wo do our best to comply. The government
must be presumed to know what Is best
for the rou n try.
"Tho press has been filled with mlsstate-
mcnts. The government was asking If the
bank was willing to renew Its offer made at
the Paris monetary conference In 1SS1 , re
garding Its reserve. I replied In the same
tenor as the memorandum which the bank
told the conference , though moro guardedly ,
That Is all that happened. Tlio statement
that the bank has been coquetting with the
American commissioners Is pure rubbish.
Excepting what I have read In the papers I
have never heard of these gentlemen. "
The. United States monetary commissioners
have received no olllcl'il Information regarding
the action taken by the Ilrltlsh cabinet on
Saturday last Private advices , however , con-
vlnco them that the cabinet has dealt the
deathblow to their nrission. It Is exported
the commissioners will shortly be Informed
that her majesty's government regrets being
iinablo to accede to their proposals , but Is
willing to listen to any other ? ilan they may
suggest. Ilut both parties to the conference
know that no other p'actical scheme can be
advanced. t
In the event of the expected reply being
received the United States commissioners will
return to the United States. It is lcarne.1 the only thing tlio cabinet ofllclals dis
cussed In connection with the currency ques
tion on Saturday was Sir James Westland's
report. Sir .Inmcs Is head of the financial
department of India and his voluminous report
took the strongest grounds against reopening
the mints.
The commissioners believe their failure
means that no further effort In behalf of
bimetallism will be made for many years to
come. They attribute thMr failure to the
opposition of the bankers und the London
Times. Until these forces were aroused all
signs pointed to thecootieratloii of the
Hrltish government.

LONDON , Oct. IS. The Dally News , In nn
editorial headed "The Blmetalllst Conspir
acy , " says this morning : "We do not know
what authority there may bo for the state
ment that the government , has agreed to con
tinue the negotiations , nor can we see what
the United States or any other country has to
do with the matter , but there must bo an end
to the conspiracy of silence In which the gov-
einment Is Involved. Our financial credit Is
far too serious a subject to bo bartered with
foreigners or handled In the dark. "
After severely reproving the chancellor of
the exchequer and the governor of the Hank
of England for their share In the transac
tions the Dally News pointedly demands ex
planations from Mr. Ilalfonr. the first lord
of the treasury , and says : "There are those ,
Including ourselves , who regard It as a pub
lic scandal that the first lord of the treasury
should bo a blmetalllst. They argue that for.
eign critics may Justly doubt the sincerity of
our monometallism when they see a man at
thu treasury who would , If ho could , destroy
the whole of our monetary system. "
After Insinuating that the question lies
been left open with a view to Influencing the
two forthcoming parliamentary by-elections
In Lancashire ; the Daily News reiterates Its
demand for full publicity and calls particu
larly for the letter written by the chancellor
of the exchequer , Sir Michael Hicks-Beach ,
to thu governor of the Hank of England.
The Dally Telegraph , dealing editorially
with Saturday's cabinet council , says : "As
the cabinet has separated not to reassemble
until the normal date next month , and ns
Mr. Ilalfour has returned to Scotland , the
ministers must he in complete agreement. If
there had been any dissension , other meet
ings of the cabinet would speedily have fol
lowed. Wo may conclude , therefore , that
everything remains CH before. It Is Impossi
ble that any momentous change In the cur
rency system could bo settled at a single
meeting of the cabinet. "
The Dally Graphic says : "All the cir
cumstances lead us to believe that the gov
ernment will give no undertaking to reopen
thu Indian mints. " Continuing , the paper
says : "CJold may yet again bo current In
India , If the policy of 1S93 Is boldly pursued.
Then the slnglo gold standard would rule
throughout the empire. That Is our Interest
both as producers and lenders of gold. Wo
are not going to throw It away In order to
put money Into the pockets of Colorado mine
owners or to help Sir. MeKlnley out of
electioneering dllllcultles. "

The royal government , though , with re
gret , has to decline the courle.ius Invitation
to lie ollli'lally represented nt the exposi

very limited , notwithstanding Invitations
made , on account of the coincidence of the
cxpo-ltluil with that of the irenpriil linlliin
government at Turin and partly because
the ' protiu'tlve tariff recently adopted by the
t'nlted States cannot attract our mamifac-
tuit'i-s and merchants to also push their
conimerilal attempts beyond the .Missis
sippi. Nevertheless , If there shall lie a rea
sonable number of exhlbitom com
peting , the royal gn\vi-nim-iit may a'no ' ,
without taking part olllclully In the exposi

vt-nl ( InMnrdir < if Sleep.
Let no man wiiose snores disturb his
boarding house at night henceforth maka
the feeble excuse : "I can't help It. " Ho
r-jin , for a Chlrago carpenter has Invented an
antl-snorlng remedy which Is said to bo In
fallible. It comes In various sizes , and will
suit the palate of the most fastidious.
It cannot bo "administered In coffco
without the knowledge of the patient , " Ilko
most untl-whlsky and anti-tobacco remedies.
If swallowed , however. It Is likely that a
man would never snore again , for It looks
more like a block and tackle than anything
The Inventor Is S. Anderson , who lives In
a part of wildest Chicago , Known as Pralrlu
avenue. He was accustomed to surro with
such energy that , It Is said , the Inhabitants
of thu surrounding townships placed the
ruin barrels under the "pouts every night.
His was a snore , thu story goes , which rose
and fell with a rhythmic measure. Some
times It was dramatic In quality. It sounded
like a buzz saw when the carpenter's mini !
was restless , and again It was soft and low.
"Sam , " said his wife , "you have got to got
something to stop that snoring. The neigh
bors say they won't Mibmlt to It. "
So the faithful Anderson began a scries of
patient experiments. Ho burned -Ida throat
with wonderful mixtures , which made him
feel as though ho hud swallowed a stream of
tacks. Ho slept without a pillow , and then
uacd two pillows unJer his head Instead of
one. He consulted several physicians. Hut
all to no avail.
Then ho bethought himself of his trade ,
for ho was a skillful carpenter. L/ong nlghta
ho sat up , poring over plans with callipers
and wielding the T-square over blue prints.
Then peace and quiet fell upon Pralrlo uvo-
nuo HKo a balm to heal the blows of Bound.
S. Anderson , who bad slept so loudly for
years before , sank to rest Hko a purrlnff
kitten. Tao neighbors mini ; to inquire , and
they for the first tlmo saw "Anderson's
Snore Annlhllator. "
The Invention \ not nlco to look at. It U
simply a pad .secured to the end of a strap.
The pad prevents the breathing through the
nose from becoming audible , nnd the strap Is
simply put there in the Intcrc tH of rafoty
and economy. A man who has bought a
newly patented article cannot 'afford to Hwal-
low It. The strop prevents the pad from
slipping down the throat ,
It Is dllllcult to administer this remedy
without the knowledge of the snorer , yet
there arc cases In which It Is worth trying.
Most of those allllcted with the snoring
habit sleep with their mouths open. If a
man 'In ' the next berth In the sleeping car
iinnoys you too much you may bo able to
give him Mr. Anderson's remedy and spend ,
a calm und restful night.
