HAVANA, March ID—A serious conflict between the police and people of Havana last night resulted in considerable shooting and clubbing. From 30 to 50 people were wounded, some seriously. Among the injured is Police Capt Es-tampes, formerly a colonel in the Cuban army. Ever since the police interference about a week ago with the demonstration in honor of Gen Maximo Gomez they have been unpopular with the populace, who jeer at them and declare them inefficient. Certain newspapers let no opportunity escape to criticise the force, denouncing the arrests us unfair and charging the police with "trampling upon the rights of a free people.” The polite are virtually in the position of men who have (intake, the people fear thorn in order to secure obedience, as they have no record to fall back upon for example. Last night’s trouble occurred at a public mulatto ball in San Jose st, un unsavory quarter. Many Cuban oflicers, colonels and captains among them, attended the affair. A policeman on duty in that street, following orders to prevent a crowd collecting in front of the building where the ball was in progress, asked a group of men to go in or to disperse. His request was unheeded, and after repeating it, he was attacked by the group, whereupon many issued frcin the building, set upon him, took away his club and revolver and handled him roughly. The policeman immediately notified headquarters, and 20 xeserves were ordered to the scene of trouble. The crowd bud prepared for their arrival. It is said they opened with a revolver lire upon the police, which the latter returned, the shooting being kept up until the ammunition was exhausted. The opiKjnents of the police acted in the affray with determination. Many who were in the building mounted to the roof, which is comparatively low, and fired upon the police from that point. They were apparently w'ell armed, and this fact, together with the resolution with w'hich they fought, seems to confirm the belief that the attacking party was mostly made up of Cuban officers, as ordinary civilians would have fled from the revolvers of the police. Many women were wounded. A report is in circulation this evening that two of the injured civilians have succumbed to their wounds, but this is not confirmed. Among those seriously hurt are policemen Donato Aroza, Enrique Munez and Benigue Vasqucz and civilians Jose Dominguez, Etouo Galiano, Alberto Aleja and Irene Roque. Public opinion respecting the police is conflicting. Some sustain them and others charge them with interfering with the rights of the people. As the facts become known, however, opinion increasing in favor of the force. It is reported on good authority that many who were wounded withdrew hastily because unwilling to have it known that they were present. 'American troops were galled to the scene when the trouble was over, and numerous arrests followed.

HARRIS & CO.. I>l»tf|butor», 269 Wallington St 'Gppogite Water St.) BOSTON. A disaster which would in all probability have resulted in lh© death or injury of scores of people was averted Saturday night at the Park st station of the subway. It was only a case of good fortune that a cartridge, eight inches in length, and filled with what is believed to be explosive material, failed to explode. It was thrown on the front platform of a cur by a man, but struck the floor on the nonexplosive end. It appears that at 7.50 Saturday evening a Newton boulevard car, via Beacon st, swung around the curve a: the Park st station. The car was In charge of motorman Charles C. Bailiff and conductor Colby. There were probably 46 or 60 passengers on the ear when it coached Park st. When about half the passengers had left the car a man of ordinary hight, and wearing dark clothes, halted when he reached the front platform. The attention of motorman Bailiff was attracted uh he saw the man throw to the car platform with much force something he held in his hand. He thought, however, that it was only a wad of paper or a piece of wood thrown into the sand pail. But when the car started around the loop at Park st he was curious to know what the object was and picked it up. It had all the appearances of a dynamite bomb, and he called the conductor. They made a hasty examination, and then Bailiff deposited it in the sand pail. Fearing that perhaps some one might board the car and in some manner tamper with the pail, causing the thing to explode, he carefully picked it up and put it in his outside coat pocket. When he reached the Newton boulevard again he made another examination and was satisfied it was a stick of dynamite. He then replaced it in his pocket and for two trips curried it there. Bailiff runs the night car. and after his second trip after finding the bomi) placed It in his locker at the Reservoir car stables. After that he worried considerably on his trips, and yesterday noon he carried the thing to the main office of division 9 and placed the cartridge in the keep ing of division superintendent Stearns. Yesterday afternoon an expert in ex plosives was culled to the A Halon office of the company and made an examination. The expert was satisfied that the stuff was dangerous, and concluded that it would be unwise to go any further with the examination unless it be in ar, open field or ledge, and so informed superintendent Stearns. It may be stated that it will be still further examined today. What The Globe prints today is true in every particular, and notwithstand ing the efforts of superintendent learns to throw the newspaper men off the scent and the reticence of the police. The Globe was enabled to gather the details until the story is quite complete There is no doubt that the man who dropped the package is a lunatic, for had the thing exploded he certainly would have been hurled into eternity with the rest of the passengers on the car and the many others who ware in the station. When he left the car tile man walked briskly to the exit and mounted the stairs to the street level, two at a time. An accurate description of tho bomb or cartridge was obtained late last night, though not fro rh Mr Stearns. The thing is about eight inches in length and weighs about one pound. The outside wrapping was of heavy dark brown wrapping paper In the form of pasteboard and the inner cover was of tin. The tin was evidently much w’orn, for it had lost its brilliancy. The cap was of cooper, aet in about half or threequarters of an inch of cement, On the outside wrapper near the cap were some printed instructions. These were inclosed in a triangle, and the wording wan as follows: ^‘Excite at this end.” A short distance ifrom these directions were the figures "No. L” The wrong end was much dented by its contact with the car platform. It Is quite evident motorman Bailiff had been instructed by his superiors to keep a still tongue in connection with the affair, and the other men about the stables had also evidently been tipped. A call at the home of Mr Bailiff disclosed the fact that he was not at home, but was working, running on the Pearl st subway line. The starter at the office informed The Globe man that Bailiff would not be back until 9.27 p rn. It was then shortly before 8, Tho starter was asked if tho motorman was on his way in or out of town. He was told that it w'as supposed he was on his return trip. The starter changed his mind, evidently, and said that, after all, he did not think Bailiff would be at the stables until nearly 10.30. .yr. Continued on the Twelfth Page, WORK OF THIEVES.

NEW YORK, March 19-Tho horrible suspicion grew today that the Windsor hotel fire was the work of thieves. Many of the guests w ho had lost their friends and all their valuables openly declared that thieves had set tho big hotel on fire for the purpose of creating nightfall thousands pressed toward tho ruins from all over town and tho suburbs. Their presence proved that all the people have been inspired with dismay by tho sacrifice of humun life. Besides, it was Sunday, and everybody w’as free for Hie day. And it seemed as a panic and looting the rooms. The po- if everybody had gone to stand by those lice were investigating their stories very closely today and questioning tho four men now under arrest. No bodies were found today, though 404i men worked all day in tho ruins. Home of tho standing chimneys wert) dynamited. A section of the rear wall fell Just aa four men left the top of it. Several llamas were added to the list of missing, and as many more taken off because the persons supposed to ba lost are safe. The pollee said there must be at least 30 bodies in the ruins. A huge crowd watched the work, though the fire lines kept them a block ruins or as near as the rest of the crowd und the police would let them. It took a cordon of rope big as a ship's hawser to keep back these sightseers. The line reached from Madison av on the east to midway of the blocks between 5th and Bt iv ava. Forty-eighth st bounded it on the north and 45th on the south. No one could pass the barrier unless he had a badge allowing admittance within the lines or else lived wltft-in the prescribed area.

Mrs Lowrie telbgraphs her mothor that both were saved and are well. NEW YORK, March 19—Miss Helen Brewer, who was at the hospital, regained consciousness today and said her home was at Cambridge, Mass. She is stronger tonight. NEW YORK, March 16 Miss Evangeline Adams of Boston and Mrs Emma G. Brush of Orange, Mass, who were thought to have been lost, were found at tho Continental hotel today. In addition to those named above the following New Englanders are among the list of the survivors of the hotel fire: Louis H. Bailey and Mr and Mrs G, B. Balch of Boston, at the Manhattan hotel; N. B. Barton and Miss Barton of Providence, at the Holland house; Mr and Mrs N. B. Barton of Providence, at the Manhattan hotel; Mr and Mis S. L. Milliken of Boston, at the Manhattan; Mr and Mrs Rodenberg of Providence, at the Manhattan, removed from the actual scene. Ail nearby streets were blocked by thousands of people eager to get a sight of the place where the horror occurred. Many more stories of thrilling interest were told today by survivors, po-lleeir»en and firemen. Several more heroes came to light who had not been h£ard of before. At IO o'clcck tonight Inspector Cross ordered all the people living in tho houses from I to 9 East 47th st to leave at once. The gaunt rear wall of the Windsor, which itill stood on tho northerly side of the ruins, was tottering and swaying in the wind. Inspector Cross said it might fall at any moment and bury these houses. Then began un exodus from all the threatened homes, whose Inmates had felt comparatively secure. With the order come a warning to Miss Helen Gould and the members of her household, their home being at 5th av and 47th st. Few took time to gather up any valuables, but ran for their lives. The flickering naphtha burners that illumined the ruins cast a red glow over the scene as the wealthy householders fled for safety. Besides the Goulds on the corner, Mr and Mrs Arthur von Briesen lived at I, Mr and Mrs James A. Hayden at 3, Mr and Mrs M . B. Dinsmore at 7 and Miss Dortic at 9 Hundreds of thousands of people went to the ruins today. No event in years has aroused so great a horror and interest. Every street in town led to that one grewsomo block on 5th av, where still smoked und steamed the pile of brick and twisted iron where once tho splendid Windsor hotel had stood. Rain kept no one awuy. From early morning, when the last of the chimneys was blown by dynamite, till long atter car and Tho too, and more to the crowds. Each reached the line full from south north ulike and went away empty, east and west side elevated lines, brought thousands more, who came to watch the gruesome ruins. So the poor, overworked police—their duty had been almost continuous for 48 hours— had their hands full. All the reserves from the nearby stations were thoro all day long, as well as the entire bicycle squad of 70 men. The scorchers had their own way today lf any went MANILA, March 19—6.35 p rn—Some of tho rebels recently expelled from; Cavite and the small towns in the vicinity of Faslg combined forces, and last! night—as already cabled—attacked company of the Washington volunteers,? a detached post at Tagulg, about a mile and a half southeast of Pasig, Gen Wheaton immediately reinforced the Americans with two companies, each* of tho Washington and the Oregon' regiments. The post had held the mw emy in check, and the tire of the rein forcing companies repulsed them, drtv Ing them across to an island formed lit the Estuary. They were thus in fron of the 22d regulars. On discovering that they were en trapped, the rebels fought desperately^ aided materially by the jungle and th darkness; but they were completer routed, with heavy loss, after tw hours’ fighting. The Americans loft two killed and 20 wounded, among th latter Lieut Frank Jones. Gen Wheaton decided to punish th natives, and at daybreak today his brit: ade started in the following order: Th 6th artillery, holding the extreme right the Oregon volunteers holding the cen ter, the Washington regiment keepin, to the edge of the lake, and the 22: regulars occupying the right of the lim which swept the whole country aion, the luke, in a southeasterly directlof toward Gen Ovenshlne’s position.

At scarce! any time did the Americans get with!; 12U0 yards of them. The troops are returning to Pasig f night, exhausted by the bard wor) under a hot sun.
