TROUBLE EXPECTED IN CUBA. An Inaccuracy in Article J. Tronble in San Francisco Between Tennessee Volunteers and a Mcgro.. Cuban Army to Disband. "The following dispatch has been re ceived at the Department of State from Con6ul Wildman, at Hong Kong: Augustin says Dewey bombarded Manila on the 13th. Tho city sur rendered unconditionally. Augustin was taken by the Germans in a launch to tne Kaiser Augusta and brought to Hong Kong. I credit the report. The Westminster.' England. Gazette pays it has received from a London bus iness house a report that Manila has fallen. The report comes from the firm's Hong Kong agent. According to La Correepondencia de Est ana, Madrid, the surrender of Manila occurred after the last attack made upon the city. . Trouble Expected in Cuba. Trouble with the Cubans is breeding. Their attitude is oneof sullen hostility toward Americans. The better class in Cuba favor the annexation of tho island to the United States and a majority of the masses are ready and anxious to worK and accept tne shelter and protec tion afforded by an American protecto rate; but they are influenced by a cer tain class of rabid orators and breed ers of sedition and rebellion against anything smacking of law and order. This inflammatory class demands and urges the recognition of Cuba for Cu bans, and spurns all offers or sugges tions tending to prosperity under an American protectorate, and excites pop ular discontent. A wild rumor is afloat to the effect that the Cuban army will attack Santiago and capture it, to the glory of the Cuban arms, as soonlas the American garrison is weakened. This is directlj- traceable to the above men tioned soutce. ' General Blanco Resigns. The Madrid government has received from Captain General Blanco a de spatch tendering his resignation. The reason given by General Blanco for re signing is that he does not wish to superintend the evacuation of Cuba. General Blanco in an address at' Havana,. said: 4 'It hav ing been' resolved bv the Mad rid government to conclude peace with the United States, I consider my mis sion in this cou-utrv ended, and have solicited my relief rom duty. I could not urge upon' a pacific solution of the existing trouble, when not long ago I advised yon to maintain the war at any vent. An Inaccuracy in Article i Corrected. Owing to an error in transmission, article 3, of the full text of the peace protocol as cabled from Madrid was not riven with accuracy. The text of this article is really as follows: .. Article 3. The United btates will occupy and hold the city, bay and har bor of Manila, pending the conclusion of a treaty of peace which snail de termine the control, disposition and government 01 tne rnuippines. A 1 ' Tl 1 ' . 1 Don Carlos Will, Oppose Uprisings. A special despatch from Lucerne, Kwitzerlaud, rays the following in spired statement has been made there: "Notwithstanding his disapproval of the course the government at Madrid is taking. Don Carlos maintains his firm intention to discourge any actual rising in spain, and is using all his influence to quell insurrectionary ten dencies and attempted uprisings among and on the part of nis too devoted fol lowers. " Another Transport Sailed. The Spanish steamer Iela de Luzon has sailed from Santiago for Spain, having on board 2,136 Spanish soldiers. Themortality is so great in the Span ish amp, where disease is rampant, that no longer are the dead buried. - A funeral pile of 10 or 12 bodies is made, saturated with kerosene and set fire to, cremating the bodies in the open air. Tronble in San Francisco. ' Dan Thomas, a negro fisherman, was wounded and narrowly escaped lynch ing at tho hands of 500 Tennessee sol diers at San Francisco. Two men of Troop B, of the regular cavalry, which attempted to quell the riot, were dragged from their horses by the vol unteers and slightly injured in the tus sle. The negro s House, a blocs ana a half from the presidio. was almost wrecked. ' Cuban and Porto Rican Commission. The personnel, of the Cnban and Porto Rican military commission wil probably be as follows: Cuban Com mission Major -General Wade, Major- Gencral M. C. Butler and Admiral W. T. Sampson.

The Cuban Army to Disband.

DRANK WATER FROM THE GRAVES. Invetigatioa of a Typhoil Epedemic leads to a startling d'eovery.' For sons time typhoid 'fever has been epidemic at Orange Mill, Durham ccunty. There - have been several deaths, and finally samples of the wa tor used was sent to Kaleigh to be anal yzed. The analysis showed that the wa ter while seemingly pure, was filled with germs of disease and the health officers declared the wells must be filled and water must be secured from ome other source. The wells were' fill ed "nd then an investigation was begun to determine why the water was filled .with typhus germs and where better water could be obtained. This inves tigation disclosed the startling -fact, that the wells from which the people had been using water had be6n sunk in an old abandoned graveyard. The Way Stores Rent in Charlotte. Mr. W. T.

The flagship San Francisco, the mon itor Miantonomah and the auxiliary vacht Svlvia were filed upon bv the Havana batteries shortly before 5 o'clock on the morning of the 12th.

General Miles sent a party with a flag of truce to notify the Spanfsh of the suspension of hostilities, but the flag was not respected.
