General Weyler's efforts to remain in Cuba have not met with success.

In the face of the letters and petitions from his admirers in Cuba, and
the demonstrations made by the soldiers in his favor, Señor Sagasta, the
Spanish Prime Minister, has decided to recall him, and send out General
Ramon Blanco in his stead.

The news was received with delightful surprise by the many people who
disapprove of Weyler's cruel conduct of the Cuban war. It had been
feared that the efforts of his friends would have had weight with the
new minister, and prevented Weyler's removal for the present.

Señor Sagasta seems to be a man of his word. He stated that if he were
called to take charge of the affairs of Spain his first act should be to
recall Weyler, and he has not swerved from his determination.

As we told you last week, General Weyler sent a despatch to Señor
Sagasta announcing that he would not resign his office, and offering his
services to the new Government.
