SPANIARDS IN CUBA.
How the Colonists Are Plundered and
fYom ihe Xew York Tribune.
Havana, Sept. 28.—'‘Cuba y sus Jueceb”
(Cutift and her Judges) is the title of an en
tertaining work by Raimundo Cabrera, an
Havana advocate of literary proclivities,
which should be of special interest to the
people of the United States' for other rea
w>ns than that it furnishes a vivid presenta
tion of the deplorable results of Spanish
misrule in Cuba. Not very long ago Eng
lish opinion was of almost more importance
to Americans than their opinion of them
selves. You w ere apt to meet censure from
abroad in a spirit of wrathful resentment
ami to throw yourselves into spasms of vir
tuous rage over the paltry sneers of super
cilious visitors from the Old World, ilap
piiv, vou have outgrown all such juvenile
weaknesses; and to-day the traveling Briton,
who leaves your shores after a fortnight's
scamper through the country and hurls at
vou a token of his stupidity in a volume of
concentrated prejudice and spleen, is only
well laughed at for his pains. But it is
doubtful whether, even in the worst days of
English antagonism, Americans were ever
the victims of such a savage onslaught as
t l, n t made recently on Cuba by an author
of Madrid. The other day one Francisco
Moreno, a haughty Castilian, who had car
ried bis pride and his pedigree on a trip
across the Atlantic, set himself down in the
shadow of the Puerta del Sol to record the
impressions of his visit to the Pearl of the
Antilles; and he has recorded them with
such absolute impartiality and such uncom
promising candor as to set all Cuba by the
ears. For the amiable Moreno was born
with a smouldering hatred of everything
Cuban which burst into uncontrollable
flame the moment he began to write; and
he lias consequently failed to discover that
fine sense of delicacy and that chivalrous
consideration for the feelings of others which
should govern the pen of a true hidalgo.
No word in his vocabulary is indeed too
strong to express his contempt for the rep
tile colonists. They have turned “the most
beautiful country human eyes have seen”
into "the theatre of all the horrors of the
moral world.” They are distinguished for
nothing but cowardice, extravagance and
sloth. The corruption of the body politic
is equaled only by the corruption of the body
social. The women are lovely, it is true,
but drearlfully naughty. The press is venal;
the streets are badly paved; the sewerage is
defective; no respect is paid to religion—and
the hotels are vile!
Aspersions such as these might well arouse
the ire of an innocent people and Senor Ca
brera’s “opportune rectifications,” as he calls
them, are intended as a sort of patriotic
counterblast. But his tone is commeudably
calm and digmfl and. He has no taste for
mere vituperation; and instead of replying
to prejudice with scurrility, he meets each
charge and deals with it squarely and fairly,
piling facts on figures and figures on facts .11
a way that not only gives the lie to his tra
ducer but shows that the Spaniards them
selves have made of the island what it is—a
nest of tyrants and corruptionists, and a
stronghold of the most iniquitous colonial
system in the world. The visitor to Cuba
does not need to go in search of abuses; they
stare him in the face. In Havana, for in
stance, he passes through streets which re
main rugged and unclean simply because
the city cannot pay the exorbitant duty im
posed by the rapacious home government
on imported paving stones. He sees preten
tious buildings which have fallen into dilap
idation because, while over $8,000,000 are set
aside every year for army estimates, only a
$1,250,000 are assigned for public works—
the greater part of this finding its way into
the pockets of .Spanish officials. He turns
in shame from aens of immorality, flour
ishing openly under the paid protection of
the Spanish police, and is jostled by crowds
of negroes who have been kept in bondage
until recently, in spite of the £400,000 which
England paid Spain in 1847 to abolish the
slave traffic, ana by hordes of Chinamen,
imported into virtual slavery in spite of the
treaty of Pekin. And wherever he bends
his steps he finds himself confronted by
vampirish and impecunious Castilians, who
have come to Cuba to suck the blood of the
people and depart from it gorged in the
shortest possible time.
Even Poland hardly fares worse. The
enormous taxation he has to meet gives the
Cuban no right to a voice in the public ad
ministration. Every office is closed to him
—even the municipal and judicial appoint
ments forming part of the perquisites of his
masters. The central power is entirely in
their hands and local office is but a delega
tion of the central power. UDtil recently
the town councils, which were fiiled from
the Lieutenant Governor’s “list of largest
contributors,” were controlled by ignorant
and despotic military chiefs, from whose
caprice there was no appeal. Though the
“boodle” alderman is not unknown in Cuba
the Cuban alderman practically is; and of
the 28 members of the last town council of
Havana 27 were Spanish born. Five only
of the 23 deputies to the Cortes elected in
April of last year were Cuban autonomists.
Eighteen were conservatives or upholders of
the supremacy of Spain—lß of these being
Spanish bom; and three only of the
ators were autonomists, against 12 constitu
tionalists, 10 of whom were Spaniards. The
autonomists are almost always the repre
sentatives of the educated class. Of judges,
in the true sense of the word, Cuba has
hardly any, for there is a perfect solidarity
between all the governing classes, and the
administration of important judicial dis
tricts is frequently handed over to Spanish
tavern keepers and low political adventurers
as a reward for fidelity to the constitutional
party. “Ah Paco!" ejaculates our author
(he is writing a letter to a supposititious
friend) “in a country where the administra
tion of justice is not the charge of the State
but a fat business for the State: where the
estimated revenues contain the item of
$750,000 for stamped paper, and the expend
tures that of $475,001 20 for outlay on ac
count of the judiciary, leaving a spending
lialance of $274,938 80, what else can justice
mean, in general and particular, in whole
and in detail, than jobbery, jobbery, job
The dense ignorance of the masses is,
alas, undeniable; but who can blame them
for it, when Spain has intentionally atid
systematically opposed the opening of
schools, on the theory that they are a hot
bed of liberal ideas and the direct cause of
revolutionary movements —when, according
to Be Araistsgui’s faun>ll- pronouncement of
1871, it has been found necessary to main
tain the Cubans in crass ignorance, “in order
to Hispanicize them!” Yet, with all their
lacker education they are not so pi one to
vice as their more fortunate rulers. Sta
tistics published in the “Gaeeta de Madrid’’*
show that by far the greater number of the
c iniimds convicted on the island were born
abroad, and that while the proportion to the
native whites is as 1 to 4,777 and to the na
tive negroes as 1 to 905, the proportion to
incomers from Spain is as Ito 233. The
progress of the islanders in letters, arts,
science and agriculture—notably their cul
tivation of the magnificent tobacco fields of
tbq Vuelta Abajo—stamps them as an en
terprising and enlightened race. The rail
road and the telegraph were in use in Cuba
before Spain awoke to a sense of their value.
Native Cubans were the first to demand the
abolition of slavery in the colony; andtho
blood of the 30,000 patriots who laid down
their lives in Hie Separatist wars is a suffi
cient vindication of their spirit.
Cabrera displays a simple eloquence in his
repudiation of the calumny fastened on
Cuban wives and mothors which should
bring blushes to the check of the calum
niator. The only taunt he does not success
fully repel is that of irreligion, and oven
this ho shows to lie unjust. For is it to be
wondered at, he asks pathetically, that in a
land where, up to 1871. only one creed was
tolerated and where the clergy divided the
exercise of tyranny with the military au
thorities, indifference should prevail“ Our
churches give a poor idea of the state of out*
faith, especially if the meanness of their
construction is compared with their enor
mous revenues . . . and even the humblest
parish church depends largely for its build
ing fund on fairs sanctioned for the pur
pose, at which gambling games, such as
monte and roulette, are permitted. But
perhaps the church undertakes to cleanse
the consciences that become sullied in con
tributing to it-s prestige!’’ Even in the
church, too, the sons of the soil are dis
criminated against; for while the diocese of
Havana comprises 144 parishes, those par
ishes employ only 22 native priests.
Senor Cabrera has done more than refute
a mean and ungenerous slander. Ho has
drawn n moral which every honest Ameri
can may take to heart. He has shown that
you, who are so ready with your champion
ship of the down-trodden in other counties,
have here at your doors as flagrant an in
stance of oppression by a governing power
as any you hear of abroad. His interest
ing and well-written book affords a striking
Cieture of a community united in blood but
opelessly divided by interest and aspira
tion—the one class striving for the perpetu
ation of dishonest privileges, the other
standing out boldly in defence of its rightful
liberty and looking to the United States for
sympathy and encouragement 111 its efforts
to ease the yoke. That those efforts will
ultimately be successful there can be no
reasonable doubt: “for know, friend Paco,”
says the author, “once and for all. that the
people who had resolution enough to con
spire during thirty years and to carry 011
during two lustres, a Titantic and bloody
struggle, do not need to conceal their aspir
ations now. Equal valor and the same
heroic sacrifice will realize in her sons, di
rected bv a clearer intelligence, the convic
tion (if it does not rule them already) that
colonial autonomy is tho only salvation of
Cuba, for Cubans, for Spain and for civil
PLEADING WITH A SAVAGE KING.
Efforts of the English to Stop the Ter
rible Angoni Kaids.
From the New York Sun.
Many years ago a large number of ad
venturesome Zulus left their own country
and traveled hundreds of miles north, until
they reached the region of Lake Nyassa.
There they settled and multiplied, some of
them making their homes among the high
lands west of the big lake, and others trav
eling around the north end of the lake and
settling on the northeast side of it.
They still wear on their heads the
ring that denotes a Zulu warrior,
and they speak the Zulu lauguage in a
corrupted form. They are the best fighters
of the Nyassa region and have long lieen
the terror of all the other tribes living
around the lake. They travel with great
celerity, and sometimes go a hundred miles
or more on slave and cattle stealing raids.
Large regions have been almost wholly de
populated by these terrible raids, and the
remnants of several once prosperous tribes
are now living on mountain topis eking out
a most miserable existence, and never free
from the fear that their enemies will seek
them out, even in the fastnesses to which
they have retreated.
Ever since Livingstone first visited the
Nyassa region we have heard of these ter
rible A 1 - mi west of the lake. Every year
the mis"iiaries at Blaniyre. south of Lake
Nyassa, have sent home reports of Angoni
raids in the fertile districts around them.
Several missionaries have visited them, and
two years ago Mr. Montagu Kerr, formerly
a Wall street broker, spent some time in
their chief town and wrote an entertaining
description of these remarkable people. It
has long been evident that unless their raids
were stopped the work of depopulation
would go on until thousands of square
miles were swept clear of inhabitants.
The pitiful reports sent to England by the
missionaries induced the British govern
ment recently to send Mr. Hawes, the Eng
lish Consul in the Nyassa territory, to the
King of the Angoni. to see if he could not
he persuaded to give up his terrible raids.
The King was notified that the representa
tive of a great Queen was coming to see
him, and he received Consul Hawes with
much display of good will and with all the
honors he could render. He told Mr. Hawes
that lie wislied to live on good terms with
the English, and he said that as far as the
A ngoni were concerned he would guarantee
the safety of all the missionary stations. He
was not quite so ready to promise to discon
tinue liis incursions among the tribes south
and east .of the great lake, but after
many discussions of the matter he finally
promised that his warriors should not e oss
the Shire river, through which the waters
of Nyassa pour into the Zambesi. It re
mains to be seen whether his promise is
worth anything. If he keeps his word, a
very large district in one of the largest
parts of Africa that was once the home of a
large and comparatively peaceful popula
tion, will in future be spared the terrible
Angoni raids. It is in this region that the
African Lakes Company has opened some
coffee plantations, and quite a number of
white men are there engaged in missionary
and commercial pursuits.
Mr. Hawes says that the Angoni yield the
most implicit obedience to the commands of
their King, and he was impressed by the
great consideration the King and all his
officers received from their people.
WILD GEESE IN DAKOTA.
An Enthusiast’s Description of the In
Correspondence of the Indianapolis! Journal.
Harrisburg, Dak., Oct. 18.—For
the information and, perhaps, benefit of
sportsmen I will give a very faint descrip
tion of what we are daily witnessing of the
grand armies of the strong-winged birds
whose name beads this letter. Of the
variety known further south as wild geese,
the “honkers,” as they are called, from the
peculiar cry when on the wing, we see
large numbers. A groat many of these
nest and breed about tbe small lakes in our
neighborhood, and people often take the
eggs and hatch them under domestic birds,
either geese or hens. Besides these there
are the brant, a smaller, gray goose, and
the beautiful snowy geese. Of these
last there seems to be no limit to
numbers. The air is almost con
stantly filled with their notes, and
one can scarcely look up at the sky—
which is wonderfully wide trom these high
lands, without seeing flocks of those magnifi
cent birds wheeling across it in one direc
tion or another. No mathematics yet, in
vented could enumerate the hosts that have
so far appeal ed. I instantaneous photography
is the only method by which any truthful
representation can bo given of their hosts.
We rode out a flay or two since, to the hike
(Wamliuska, sometimes called Stump lake.)
The day was one of the mellow, golden,
bracing, thoroughly enjoyable days thut
October sometimes brings even to you poor
.dwellers amid tho mists and damps of In
diana, but to us she is lavish of such treas
ures during her entire reign. Aii the day
and the days before —one cannot tell for how
long—flocks on flocks of geese, in countless
numbers, were sailing overhead in ranks
and clusters of ranks, some dark and some
snowy white, with black-tipped wings. They
are congregating about our beautiful lake,
probably making preliminary arrangements
for their Southern flight. The whole
blue vault, which showed no cloud,
was lined in every direction by ranks of
snowy birds. The afternoon sun shone full
upon their brilliant plumage, tinging it a
full golden color, than which no bird of
paradise could be more dazzling; and tbe
vast numbers on wing of shining, gold hued
hosts made one of the finest sights that one
could behold. I never saw anything to
equal it. When we came in full view of
the lake, where there are several miles of
water in sight, there was another remarka
ble sight for us. If tho canopy above was
full of flying birds the surface of that long
stretch of glistening water was a hundred
times more so. Along the further shore
and far out from laud there were thousands
of geese floating so close together that one
saw 110 glimmer of wa er between them.
Midway between the shores islands of geese
floated, but appeared to observers on the
lugii banks like still, inanimate earth, cov
ered with a fresh fall of snow. Sportsmen
were crouching here and there b hind
clumps of bushes, and every now and then
a rifle-shot echoed along the woodland, but
what were a few sportsmen among such
multitudes of birds!
THE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1887.
CAUSES OF LOCKJAW
Varieties of the Malady and How it is
FYom the yew York Tintr.t
Old residents on Long Island are aware
that a greater number of persons in propor
tion to the inhabitants die of trismus and
tetanus there than iu any other part of the
State or of the United States. This is par
ticularly true of the eastern towns and
villages. Visitors are astonished at tbe con
cern manifested over a slight cut, bruise, or
incision that would be almost unnoticed
elsewhere. Cautions regarding cold after
an injury seem to them superfluous, but tbe
natives know better, and uread lockjaw be
cause they have seen so many cases of tae dis
ease, m many instances in their own fami
lies. Its prevalence is accounted for by the
climate and other influential causes which
predispose the system to it, and it is a no
ticeable fact that animals, particularly
horses, are as much subject to it as human
beings. Although tetanus is not always
fatal, it invariably leaves the systems of
those once ..ffected with a constitutional
liability to a renewal of the attack from
slight exciting causes. Trismus is included
in the more general term tetanus. It is an
uucontrolable spasmodic contraction of the
muscles of the lower jaw, aud is simply tbe
disease commonly known as lockjaw.
When ail the voluntary muscles of the
body are attacked under" the same condi
tions the disorder is known as tetauus. It
usually begins with contraction of the
muscles of the throat and lower jaw, but
lockjaw is sometimes a purely local affec
tion. it is a spasmodic affection produced
by sympathetic or reflected irritation
caused by local injury. A remarkable fea
ture of tetanus is the absence of constitu
tional disturbance. When it is attended
with local irritation, such as a wound or
other injury, it is known as trauiatic; when
no visible cause exists.it is called idiopathic.
It may be acute or chronic, the first, usually
the result of an accident, as in the case
of Kelly the carpenter, and Bureuger the
farmer, and almost invariably fatal.
The chronic or idiopathic form some
times, though rarely, yields to skillful treat
ment. Diseases involving the teeth, gums,
or jaws often cause trismus or lockjaw in
adults, aud it is often the result of teething
in children. Horses seem very susceptible
to the disease, and many cases are known
01 Long Island where a slight saddle-gall or
abrasion caused by an ill-fitting harness has
been followed by lockjaw. When they are
exposed to cold after injury, the disorder is
most to be feared. It is thought by some
authorities that lacerated wounds produce
tetanus more frequently than incised ones:
but, although this may be true in regard to
human subjects, horses and other animals
appear to suffer more from incised ones.
A nail run into the foot is the commonest
of all causes of lockjaw in horses. The
acute form of tetanus is developed when
symptoms quickly follow the injury. Death
usually follows in from twenty-four hours
to ten days after the appearance of the first
symptoms. After the lapse of twenty one
days the patient or subject is regaided a
out of danger. Ritrus saronuicus, or tetanie
grin, is a drawing down of tie corners of
the mouth by the contraction of the facial
muscles. When this occurs all doubt is dis
pelled as to the presence of trismus, and the
patient is regarded beyond all earthly as
sistance. This is often seen in dying peopi
and was particularly noticeable on the bat
tlefield and iu the hospitals during the civil
war. Tetanus is distinguishable from spinal
meningitis and from cerebrospinal menin
gitis by the absence of inflamma
tory symptoms, and from the last-named
affection by the absence of eephnlalgy or
headache, delirium and coma. The con
sciousness of the patient distinguishes it
also from epilepsy. Poison by strychnine
produces symptoms so nearly akin to tetauus
as to nuzzle the most learho 1 aud skillful
phpsi' ians. Rabies, or hydrophobia, is
sometimes mistaken for it.
The remedies are many, and physicians
disagree as to. the most efficacious treatment.
Chloral-hydrate, chloroform, ether, nico
tine, quinine, morphine and other drugs are
used, aud the patient is nourished as gener
ously as the nature of the malady will per
SOUTH SEA COURTSHIP.
Eccentricities of the Natives of the
From the San Frnnri-tco Examiner.
Dr. W. B. Waller, of Caldwell, Ohio, re
turned on the last steamer after four
months’ residence in the islands of the Navi
gator group. He gave some strange inci
dents of his experiences there, and of the
queer habits of the bronzed natives, to a
representative of the Examiner at the
Grand Hotel yesterday.
“Tho Samoans are a simple-minded, hon
est people,” said he. “It lias been charged
tnat they steal everything they can lay then
hands on, but this is a mistake. T.uey just
take it. Almost everything is common
property. Stop at one of their reed cabins
in the bush, and you can’t tell whether the
folks there own the cabin or not. Perhaps
they are just occupying it for a week, while
tbe builders of it are away occupying
somebody else’s cabin. Or, porhar s, two
families are there together. Lt a Samoan
drop into any cabin and see a coat he wants
and he just takes it. It’s all right. The
owner of it will tak the next one he s*<=g
anywhere, or if he asks for the one lie had
he can readily get it back. Just so with
every; hing they have.
“The Navigator Island people never kiss.
They simply rub uoses. And should a young
mail w ish to marry a girl he, if he has a
servant, simply sends him to the girl,
stating that his master likes her an i would
like to marry her. If she is willing to marry
him she sends back word, naming an early
evening when she will meet him. Tin- meet
ing usually takes place in the bush back of
the girl’s home. It is the trysting place,
and here everything is talked over, the
lovers sitting upon the ground, and every
thing is arranged.
“Perhaps the next day, or very soon
thereafter, they disappear, without saying
a word to anybody. They may l>e gone
four or six weeks in the bush before any
body hears from them or has the least ink
ling of where they are. Then they as sud
denly reappear, whereupon they are formal
ly joined in marriage by one of the chiefs
or missionaries, and all their friends join in
giving them a big dinner of pork. Then
t hey are substantially married, but should
either “grow tired of the other, he or she
simply remove ;to one of the other islands,
where the party is as free again as though
never married, the ceremony not holding
go and there, nor. in fact, at home, after a
“The Samoan girls marry at the age of '0
or 12 years. They are then as magnificently
developed physically as they ever are, but
in mind they are oftentimes but little else
“Another thing about these strange
natives of the Navigator group is that they
are double-jointed, and that is why they are
such fine dancers, and are, altogether, the
most graceful people in the world. Their
legs at the knee joint, their arms at the el
bows and their shoulders, with their ball
and socket joints, are reversible in a way
that would astonish you. Tbe elbow and
knee joints can be bent exactly contrary
to the natural condition of all other persons.
“The missionaries have taught tho Sa
moans to avoid profanity, and they never
swear in their presence, but outside of it
they think it is all right, and I have heard
them cuss like troopers, and a half hour
after lead a family prayer with a fervor
that is amazing. They are a devout people,
and, with all their occasional profanity, are
never angry. They are the most even
tempered people I ever saw. ”
