Sir: 1 notice in your valuable issue
of yesterday evening. 2Tst, that my
name appears in the list of candidat- h
for t.ffl-in Jefferson county at pri
mary r.lcetton Aug. 4th. This is a mis
take. I have been utged upon by many
friends in the county to announce my
s.if a candidate for the senate, but I
have refused to enter a general scram
ble for the office, and have given way
to friends who seem to lie much more
anxious for the honor than myself.
I have Increased my farming interest

vided attention to the same, and up to
the present date me prospects for a
rich harvest are bright indeed Crops
general!" -ire good In this section, and

will just send us a nice rain in a few
days, and quit forecasting dry weather
so much. Very respectfully.

the man and fleet to carry the war INTO SPAIN.
Nothing happening In this vicinity re
cently has taken the American officers
and troops so completely by surprise as
this story of the battle between the Cu
bans nnd the Spaniards. It is not
known whether General Garcia was
aware of the number of the enemy he
was attacking. At bast five thousand
Spaniards were In the body, according
to the report, and they drove Garcias
men Into full retreat a few hours after
the battle was begun.
When the Cuban general withdrew his
troops to the mountulns he resolved to
move on to Holquln. If the Americans
would not ellow them to wreak ven
geance on the Spaniards In Santlngo,
the Cuba.na proposed to storm some
other important place. It was with this
object that General Garcia withdrew
his troops from the American lines,
and refused to longer ad ns nil ally of
General Shatter. He decided to can
tuie Holquln if possible and there to
set up an insurgent governmiflit, mak
h g that place the Cuban headquarters
for the Eastern Department.
In Good Faith.
The Spnr.iords had been gathered
fi, :n the fortified towns In the vicinity
and were proceed Dig <° Santiago under
t;,. terms of the surrender. They were
seeking to carry out In good faith the
agreement made i*.ith Genera! fibs'ter.
but were not locking •>' a fight and
were caught off their guard.
