The town is full of ex citement tonight over the hanging of Captain General Weyler in effigy. About 100 young men made a dummy representing me Spanish genera, put a rope around his neck, dragged him through me streets, hanged him to a tele graph pole, shot him down and burned aim at the suke. The final act was witnessed by 1,000 spectators who cheered the boys. Naw York The Cuban League of the United States was formally organized in- tbis city. The men beuind thin move ment are so well known and carry so much weight that it is beyond a doubt that this is the beginning of a movement that will take no small part iu the history of both countries, haviug, as it does. Un complete independence of Cuba from Spain for its principal object. A league under the same name existed daring the ten years' war and the nucleus in this country about which aid for Cuba centered. A monster mass -meeting will be held in Cooper Union next Monday night, when Senator Morgan, of the Foreign delations Committee, and Congressman Uitt, of the same committee in the House, Speaker Keed, of Maine, and Sen ator Cullom, of Illinois, will speak. The Cuban junta in New street has more callers man ever. btrong-iimDeu Americans, to the number of between ieven and eight hundred nearly enough to constitute a regiment tramped u lairs, threw out their chests, and iu res olute tones asked that they be enlisteo inv the army of Cuba Libre. Not one oi ihem was accepted, lhe laws ot tut tjnited States prohibit me enlistment oi men here for foreign armies, A petition urging Congress to take somt Jehnite action in the conflict now beiuj. vaged betweeu the Cubans and Spau ards, and expressing sympathy for th. lormer, is being circulated in this ciu wnong merchants and business men, am .a receiving many signatures. Dr. Machado, the brother of the las .'resident of the preceding Cuban rejiu. ic, and one of ibe most prouniueut ii. kuu in this city, declares it is his unal terable belief that Gen. Maceo was poi ned, togetuer vwtb his entire stall, . otne miscreant. He says the poison wa. robably administered in cotfee. This, ae said, was drunk by the Cuban soldiers ..(. all hours of me day and night.

Mitrayed to his death. At the time Zei tucha was profuse in his expression o, gratitude to Maceo. "Maceo,"continued Dr. Machado, "feti ng that Zertucha possessed a sense o. gratitude, received him into his corps." Dr. Machado ridiculed the idea that daceo crossed the trocha by water, anu ieclared he could not reach Punta Brava ay water. Zertucha, he says, accompanies aim, administered the poison at an oj jortune moment, and then notified tin Spaniards. The doctor asserted thai .oaceo's death, instead of acting as a ielerrent, w.ould, be a stimulus to thi cause of Cuba. Dallas, Ten.

The feeling here is intense against Spain, as the belief is general that .Ma ceo's death was the work of hired assas sins and treachery. Clsvujlko, O.

The re. port published in the Times yesterday that the manner in which Maceo is re ported to have been killed would very likely be the inspiration of a request, for official inquiry by the House or Senate today was a fruitful cause of comment of an approving nature. Quite a number of Senators Repre sentatives were seen, and while none of them knew what particular member of either branch of Congress would intro duce such a resolution, they all discussed the matter interestedly. Three of them said that while they did not know of any specific inquiry, it was very probable that the reported military murder of Maceo would be discussed in cidentally in the various resolutions of JUills, Cullom, Call and others now before the Senate. Among those interviewed was Senator Thurston. "I would vote," lie said em-1 i phatically, "to enter the protest of this government against the manner iu which this Cuban war is carried on, and espec ially as to the death of Maceo, assuming:, of course, that the report is true and that the killing was done as given in the dis patches. "The feeling in Congress on tiiis nfat ter is very strong and it is to be pre sumed that the Maceo incident will in tensify it. But apart from this I would support almost any resolution th it might be introduced. I would vote f'.r a reso lution recognizing the Cubans as belli gerents. You may say that I will be in line with any policy on this question which may be formulated by such Sen ators as Sherman, Frye, Hale, Lodge or Allison." Congressman Berry, of Kentucky, who served in the civil war, does not believe the reported death to be a fact, "but," said he, "I am for Cuba all the time. I think the war has gone on long enough and it is to be regretted that Mr. Cleve land did not indicate in his message a definite line on which Congress could act." Referring to the circumstances of the death of Maceo, Mr. Berry said that it was very unlikely that it should have been compassed under the cover of a flag of truce. The Spaniards do not rec ognize the insurgents as belligerents, and j it is open to grave doubt that any such rlag entered into the question. "As to the proposed resolution, I have not heard who will introduce it, but it is not improbable that an expression has been made out of which your report has grown." Mr. McMillin, of Tennessee, said that ne had not seen any of the members luring the day. He had, however, seen :he statement in the Times that such a resolution would be introdnced, but did not care to say what shape the legisla tion referred to would take. The Klrmess a Success. Special Correspondence of the Jol-rxai.. Wilmington, Dec. 14. The curtain at our opera house has just rung down on die first performance of the Wilmington .Cirmess, chronicling the most notable spectacular success ever seen in North Carolina. The brilliantly lighted theatre, beauti fully decorated with flags of many na tions, among which were intertwined festoons of the graceful bamboo and other evergreens, formed a charming set ting to this notable scenic and social event, at which were gathered in full array the beauty and fashion of Wil mington. The sinuous movements of the several national dances, the ch,a,rming grace and abandon of the dancers, the beauty and variety of costume and the gorgeousness and brilliancy of the mise en scene com posed an effect altogether fairy-like and bewitching. The cultivated and enthusiastic audi ence wag lavish in its applause, and on ,.x siues vvcic iicuxu lAJltaaiuiia ui eic- light that bore abundant testimony lo the unprecedented success of this long anticipated and magnificently prepared festival, having for its praiseworthy ob ject to provide a merited monument to North Carolina's distinguished Revolu tionary patriot, Cornelius Harnett, pre eminent among the brave and noble sons of our Cape Fear section. This "first night" performance reflects highest' credit upon the stage participants, aud upon all connected with the manage ment of this most unique and brilliant en tertainment, whose financial success be comes thus assured, notwithstanding the great cost of production. A change of programme has been an nounced for each, succeeding night, and many people from the several larger cities of the State have already secured seats for the three remaining evenings of this brilliant and never-ta-he-forgottcn pa geant. From Faj'etteville a large con tingent of society people is booked for Tuesday evening's performance, uud the social world of Wilmington is looking forward with pleaaed anticipation to giving a welcome greeting at the Wed nesday evening Kirmess to its many friends and acquaintances of the "City oi Elms."

The laborer thanked the doctor and was prepar ing to leave when the latter called him back.andsaid: "I beg your par don, but I charge half a crown for my advice."
