NEW ORLEANS, June 17.—General Bofael Quesuda, one of the Cubans' most distin- guished leaders and a very influential man in Venezuela, Is at the Pickwick ho- tel after an extended visit to friends at various gulf ports. In an interview tho gonor.xl wns nskod: \How are the Cuban people Inclined to the presont war? Is there not some divis- ion among thorn, owing to the race ques- tion f\ \No sir; that is an erroneous impres- sion, due in part to the false reports of the Spanish authorities and also to the misunderstanding as to the factor, at work on the Cuban people. The Cubans en masse are in favor of the revolution, but for a few homcruio leaders who still ollng to the deluded hope that Spain will give them self government. \Independence is the only solution to the Cuban problem and the only aim for which we are striving. There Is no such thing' as a raoe question, for the twodi- GKNERAL QTJKSADA, visions aro dear and each has its own par- ticular sphere in which they work. There are a few brave negroes among the troops who are fighting as hard and nobly for their Independence as the whites.\ \As a military officer nnd a Cuban, how do you estimate the pblioy pursued by Marshal Martlnes de Camposf\ General Qneiiada replied it would hard- ly be fair to criticise an officer In com- mand, \but I can say that I do not think he is acting wisely in two things, both of which are doing his country more harm than good. He is ruining the national treasury and I will prove it to you by fig- ures. The revolution started on Feb. 24. The avowed cost per day to Spain of the army is §126,000, a conservative estimate. He has had this oxpense since Feb. 2t, or say 100 days, amounting to$12,600,000, and if the war should oontlnue at this rate Spain, whose credit is not of the best, may find herself in a bad position. '•'Besides this he is killing the army. As soon as he hears of the appearance of the insurgents he marches regiment after regiment after the elusive Cuban, killing the soldiers with foroed marches, subject- ing them to inclemoncy of the rain and the burning heat of the sun. This de- moralises his soldiers, and from private advices I know that there fs a spirit of discontent among the troops which is spreading and which has gained us several adherents from the soldiers, which of course are never heard of in print, as Spain controls the malls and telegraph.
