Wc.yler's campaign in the eastern province hns been a failure. The insurgents still control ttto-thirds of. the island. The Spanish troops are poorly fed and unpaid. The credit of Spain is gone and the treasury is citipty. The rebellious in Cuba mid the Philippines are costing from $1:3,000,000 to 315.000,000 per month. Spain has made up her milid that she inust either lose, the Philippines or Cuba,'and has concluded to let the latter go. Before doing so, however, she will first negotiate through the United Sttttes to get the insurgents to accept autonomy, and, finding that proposition rejected, will propose that the Cubans guarantee the Avar debt and accept independence. It remains to be seen whether the insurgents will accept the latter proposition or, feeling their position secure, reject it, and take by arms the. land that is nowjjracHciilly theirs.
