Tose Mnrtl, Leader of the Cuban Rebels Reported Slain Geiiornl Gomez Warned. LONDON, May tho Marlbor- ough Street Police Court this morning the Marquis of Queensberry and bis son, Iiord Douglas, of Harwich, were bound over in bail each to keep the peace. Their appearance in court was the result of their encounter yester- day afternoon in Piccadilly, when the Marquis severely punished his son ing a quarrel over the Oacar Wilde scandal. Both the Marquis and Lord Douglas were fashionably dressed. The Mar- quis wore a rose in his buttonhole and did not show any sign of the fight. On the other hand, his son Lad n black eye. The Marquis was not defended by counsel, but Lord Douglas had a lawyer present. In his defense, the Marquis said that while he was walking in Piccadilly his SOD came running at him and pushed him against a store window, speaking at the top of his voice. The Marquis added that he struck his son in self-defense. Counsel for Lord Douglas said that the latter and a frieiid were walking in Pic- cadilly, not thinking of the Marquis of Queensbury, wlTen the encounter took place. Counsel added that Lady Doug las yesterday received the following telegi-arn: "I must congratulate you on the re- sult, but I cannot congratulate yon oil Percy's appearance. He looks like n dug-up corpse. I fear there is too much madness in kissing. Taylor is guilty. It will be Wilde's turn tomorrow." It was also asserted that the Marquis had written to Lady Douglas false charges against her husband and members of the family, and that, although he had promised to stop writ- ing, he had not done so. Yesterday it was claimed Lord Douglas asked tho Marquis to cease writing "these obscene and filthy" letters to his wife. The Marquis then hit him in the face anrl the fight followed. Rebel [.pallor Slain. HAVANA, May Saloeclo telegraphs that government troops, un- der tho commndd of Uolouel Sandoval, encountered a force of insurgents at a point between Dos Kiosey Byzas and Bemaugaua Jnas. Many of the rebels were armed, including Jose Marti, presi- dent of tho so-called republic, whose body was found by the government troopa. General Maximo Gomez is reported to have been seriously shot, NEW YOKK, May Norwegian fruit steamer Bnraoou arrived today from Gibara, Cuba. Captain Clausen reports that while anchored at Sumo, near Gibara, awaiting cargo, great ex- citement prevailed on shore. Bands of insurgents roamed through the town, and Captain Clausen received tion that tho insurgent General, Gomez, contemplated seizing the Baracoa, to use as a transport fo.' his soldiers from town to town along the Cuban coast. Captain Clausen immediately got up all steam, so that on the appearsnce of the rebels he could slip his anchor and go to sea, but after 48 hours the mont on shore subsided, the rebels pre- sumably having left the town. Jose Marti had a romatic career. Ho was president of the Cuban revolution ary party. At the time of the first Intion, although but 15, he was banish- ed for conspiracy against the Govern- ment. He was sent to Spain, where he was imprisoned in dangeons until he was at the point of death. He was freed at last, on condition that he would re- main in Spain for the remainder of his life. He stndied in Saragassa, and be- fore he was 21 received the decrees of doctor of law and letters. When the Spanish Eepubjic was pro- claimed ho succeeded in evading the authorities and'escaped to France, com. ing afterward to the United States. The Cuban war was the'n about over. Marti, nevertheless, went to Mexico, where he organized a filibustering expedition. It failed and he went to Central America and obtained a universal professorship. He was Minister of Uruguay at the In- ternational Monetary Conference in Washington in 1891. ITrnnz Von Dontl. VIENNA, May von Snppe, the noted musical composer, is dead. MAY D KM AND INDEMNITY. Ex-Consul Waller's Cnsu Shows Franco Wfis In tho WASHINGTON, May French Government, acceding to the demand of the United States, has transferred the case of Ex-Consul John L. Waller to ordinary civil jurisdiction. This action apparently nullifies the sentence of 20 years' confinement imposed on Waller by a French military court in Madagas- car, and indicates either his trial by the the civil judiciary or his ultimate re- lease from prison. The matter has now reached a stage where the United States Government has ample evidence on which to base a claim against France, possibly involving the payment of indemnity fur the treat- ment accorded Waller and the abroga- tion of the concession obtained by him of valuable rubber forests. Waller is still in prison in Marseilles, but may be transferred to some civil penal institu- tion. The evidence in t'ue cosa received at the State Department is practically com plete, and it is understood to contain some rather startling facts that have not heretofore become public. Edward Telfafr Wetter, of Georgia, who suc- ceeded Waller as United States Consul at Tamatavc, it has been claimed, did not put forth his best effoits to extend relief of his Government to a.distressed citizen of the United States. It is shown by correspondence sent to the State Department that the French Government was suspicious that the rubber concession secured by Waller from the Hovas was obtained for the purpose of providing a coaling station for United States naval vessels. Such an accusation was openly made in Mada- gascar by partisans of the French. Whether this belief was actually enter- tained cannot be learned, but the docu- ments now on file at the Department assert that after French had refused to confirm the concession of tho flovas, French citizens took possession of the rubber forests transferred to the ex Oonnsul, and French vessels have been taking away great quantities of the pro- duct. WHEAT TAKES AXOTHER PLUNGE. Reported Killing of Five Men iin Explosion in Cecil Couuty. CAUSED BY A CARTRIDGE. It Exploded In Re- movlue Stumps From a Newly-Made Field. May is reported here this afternoon that five men were killed and one fatally injured shortly after midday by the premature explosion, of dynamite on the farm of William Pyle, near Chesapeake City. The names of- the dead have not yet been learned, and details of the accident are meagre. Dr. Wallace of Chesapeake City hap- pened to be here on business, and on re- ceiving a telephone message left at once for the Pyle farm to render all possible medical aid. The scene of the accident is on the- Elk river. According to the report, Pyle and five or six other men were engaged in blowing up stumps of trees in a new- ly-made field and used dynamite for the purpose. Through some unknown cause, one of the cartridges exploded before the men were ready, knocking all down, tearing a great hole in the ground and sending fragments of stumps and roots in all directions. Five of the men are said to have been killed instantly, and the body of one was mangled beyond recognition. Pyle, it is reported, was picked up in a dying condition. BRICK YARDS TIED UP. Jumes W.

The fight is expected to be a bitter one, and trouble is anticipated by the police. The strike has been in furoe in several of the yards for two demands of the men for higher wages being re- fused, and the Brick Makers' Alliance yesterday decided to order a general strike to force concessions by the manu- facturers. The latter declare they will operate several yards ou. the North Side with non-union men, and the yards specified were surrounded this forenoon by crowds of strikers determined that no work shall be done until the wage question is settled.

Yesterday fishermen using a seine in the Missouri near here brought up the body of Ada. The arms of the girl were pinioned behind her and her limbs were bound together with a strong cord. There was other evidence of foul play. It is supposed the girls were enticed from home and murdered after being assaulted. Damaered Crops Cause Anotlier Sudden Rise. CHICAGO, May jumped 3 cents on the board today before noon, and gave promise of holding the greater part of its advance. Liverpool cables were soaring outside, domestic markets were up and the country was flooding the pit with buying orders. The main. cause for the advance, however, was the continuation of crop damage reports. They came into the pit in a stream from all parts of the wheat belt, and ranged from stories of slight damage to bar- rowing tales of complete destruction. The July option opened with a 1-oen.t lunge, starting at It dropped j dent for an instant, bat immedittely plunged upward again, touching 75J. The astonished speculators rested for "a time aghast at the sight of 75-cent wheat, and during a temporary lull in the ex- citement prices dropped back to a trifle below the high figure. Another wave of buying orders soon struck the market, however, and July wheat went sailini? again, landing at 76 j, just 3 cents above the opening price, and almost 2 cents higher than it had gone before the present advance.
