How It Is Regarded In Washington
by Prominent Men.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 14. 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
Among those interviewed was Senator
Thurston. "I would vote," lie said em-1
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
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
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
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.
