Washington—For   tho   lirst
time sini.ui llie present struggle
of Cubit began this government
bus given permission lo customs
uflii'iuls to clear for Cuba a vessel
loaded according to the manifest
with munitions of war, presnm
ably for  the  insurgent army
Yesterday the socrotary of tho
treasury roeolvcdu telegram from
tho attorney of tho owners of the
Dauntless at Jacksonville! stat
ing thoy would apply to tho col
loctor of customs at Jacksonville
for clearance to a Cuban port
with a cargo of arms, but that
the oaths required by the statutes asked whether, under the
circumstances, papers would be
issued.   Later a telegram was
received from tho collector at
Jacksonville stating that application to clear the Dauntless for
Nuovitas, Cuba,1 with a cargo of
arms, had been made, and asking
for instructions,,   This morning
the secretary replied substantially as follows: "If tho master of
of tho vessel and tho owners,
shippers and consigners of tho
cargo comply fully with the laws
and regulations concerning the
manifest, and take the oaths required, you may grant a clearance to Nuovitas, Cuba.    Oaths
must be taken and subscribed in
writing, as required by sections
419", 4198, and 4200 of the revised
statutes."
The port mentioned as the destination is on the northern coast
of Cuba, and is occupied by
Spanish forces. The treasury
officials, thereto! e, are of the
opinion that the oaths required
will not be taken.
Late this afternoon the collector of customs at Jacksonville
wired the secretary of the treasury that the steamer Commodore
had applied for clearance papers
upon practically the same statement of facts as in the case of the
Dauntless. In response the secretary wired permission to 'issue
papers to tho Commodore 'in substantially the same terms as were
named in the former case.' Up to
the hour of closing the depart
uient no information had been received as to the movements of
either vessel or whether the conditions imposed had been accepted.
New York,- Thomas Estrada
Palma, president of the Cuban
junta, said today, after reading
the order of Uie secretary of the
treasury rolative to tho Dauntless clearing:
" This is it victory for us so
far us it allows tho boats to leave
tlio port. Wo have asked tho authorities at Washington to give
us clearance papers, although a
short time ago they declared that
no sueh boat as tho Dauntless
could got them, except under tho
most stringent rostriotidils, If a
vessel cloarod for a certain port
sho is to give a roasouitblo excuse
why sho does not deliver her cargo at that port. But stress of
weather) j*ou know, or soma accident, mightfiompol her to throw
tho cargo overboard or deliver It
somewhere else. We in New
York know nothing' of the Dauntless ease,
We hopo it will result In a proper construction of the law, Which
Is now vague and difficult to Understand, Even tho authorities at
Washington are at sea regarding
it, and it will bo n good thing
that wo have got a ruling,

Senor Cauovas del Castillo, has

will not accept intervention iu Cuba nor introduce reforms as long
its the rebellion is not confined to

shortly Introduce reforms in

TEXANS WERE WIPED OUT
IN  CUBA.
Battled   Heroically   for   Five
Hours With Spanish Troops,
New York—A 'special to the
World from Key West, Fla.,
says:
The Lone Star company of the
patriotic army of west Cuba, consisting of 15 Texas sharpshooters, perished to a man after
horoicolly battling more than
live hours against vastly superior Spanish forces at Pinar del
Bio province, killing double their
own number and wounding probably as many more:
The Havana officials are jubilant, say tho passengers arriving
here, over this victory. A Cuban
band was observed near Pinar
del Eio City Thursday morning,
and General Molquisso sent two
squadrons of cavalry to attack
them.   After a running Are, the
band, which proved to be composed of 15 Texans, wore chased
into a "bottle," a bit of hummock
having only one opening.   The
Texans, seeing they were in a
hole retreated to the further end
and fortified themselves hastily
behind boulders.    The Spanish
troops dismounted and surrounds
ed them, pouring in a volley from
both sides,   The brave Texans
replied and kept up the fight for
more than five hours.    By that
time six of the fifteen had been
killed and four wounded, while
25 Spaniards had bitten the dus t
and ten more were wounded,   A
Hag of truqe was sent in by the
Spanish and the Texans were
called upon to surrender, but the
Americans refused to lay down
their arms, shouting, "We remember Maceo."
This infuriated the Spaniards
and they fought with renewed
fierceness. Twice they charged
but the rapid firing of the brave
little band drove them back. By
getting on a high ridge behind
the Texans' position, the Span-
iards wore enabled to pour in a
lire that killed all but two of
thoso left. Those two gallantly*
continued to light, and held oil'
the Onomy an hour longer, Then
overcome by thirst and enfeebled
by loss of blood flowing from n
dozen wounds, they wero cut to
pieces by the Spaniards, who
finally dialled up as the Texans
