GEN.LEE ON THE CUBAN QUESTION.
Spaniards Do Not Regard Laws of Modern Warefare.
Washington. June 23- The Post tomorrow will Bay:
A very interesting letter was reoeived today
by a relative from General Lee. It deals pretty
fully with Cuban affairs. The Spanish troops,he
says, are fairly well drilled,but under a system
of taotics different from anything the general
has ever seen. As to the insurgents they had
praotioally the control of the island.
As to the inhumanity of the Spanish commander,
General Lee expresses himself In the plainest
terms.
They do not regard the laws   of modern warfare
nor the usages customary amor.g civilized nations
at all"
He says: "From either quarter there is the same
testimony oomjerning the barbarities of tho
Spanish soldiers. Some of the evidence I have
heard would be beyond belief did I not know it
to be most reliable. Violation of women, the
plundering of inoffensive oitizens, murder,and
every form of rapine have been inflicted on the
natives of the island, and it takes very little
indeed to place you under susploian.
General Lee doubts if peace oould be made short
of a basis of absolute independence and freedom
from Spanish control.
ATTACKED   BY REBELLIOUS NATIVES.
Buluwayo June 22- A patrol of 23 of the horses,
bringing in women and children in an armored
mule wagon, had a desperate fight with rebellioui
natives near Salisbury. Seven of the patrol were
killed and four wounded,while 14 of the horses
and all of the mule, were killed.
TRUE BILLS FOUND.
London,June 33- The grand jury today found true
bills against Dr.Leander Starr Jameson, Major.
Sir John Wilio__hby,Golone_ R.C.Gray,Major R.W.
Hile,Colonel H.F.Wile, and Hon.Henry P. Coventry,
charged with violating the neutrality laws by

OBITUARY.
The announcement of the death of    Fabien Dupere,
was not unexpected, as Mr Dupere' was 73 years
old, and has been ailing for some time.
Mr Dupere was an uriole to F.DeRosier, and
lately owne    to Fort Steele from the plains.
The funeral took place today, at whioh, many
friends attended.

DEPORTATION OF CREE INDIANS.
Great Falls,Mont,June 18.- Lieutenant John Per--
ahing arrived at Great fells last evening from
Fort Assinaboine with-43 men of the  .tenth Cavalry,and the first move is being made today towards exporting'the renegade Cree Indians to
Canada under the recent act of oongress.Sheriff
Dwyer and Lieutenant Pershing went to Buffalo
Coat's camp this afternoon near the clty,had him
call in his followers,and talked with them about
going baok.They promised them rations and placed-
piokets around them. Inquiry was made in the powwow as to the whereabouts of Little Bear and
other ohiefs with their bands,The inference, is
therefore, that they will also be rounded up.
Some of the Indians olaim that they • ,\
as well as their children are citizens'of the
United States, and they dont want to go back ,
even if Canada does grant them full pardon for
the-part they took in the Riel rebellion. A lot
of box oars of the Great Falls and Uanada :• "    ,•
railway,with seats in them,have been brought herw
to be used in the deportation.
ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LINE.
The most oonsplouous figures now before the peos
pie of the United States are William MoKlnley and
G.A.Hobart. They are the nominees at the St,Louis
Convention,for President and Vioe President, the
platform is a strong and clear declaration for
gold. The ten'-as. silver men were not in it,and ■
.they walked out of the convent ion, The result
is,war between the- Gold Bugs and the Sllverites,
Protection will be the war cry of the party,
But the silver men of both of th. old parties,wil,
have something to day before a president is elect
eel,a split In both parties may give the eleotion
to the sllverites,the West and.South are solid f(
silver. It will uc hard to foretell the result,
until the other parties declare" their platforms*. .
Eie money plonks,pf the different conventions'-.'' \i\\
should go through the mill of publio opinion andi ■
be carefully revised before the time of plaoaihg.^ \
it before the electors, '• '
