MANILA, Oct. 7. Major Morris C
Foote of the Ninth United States in
lantry, who has returned here from
the island of Samar, was in Balanglga
the day before the disaster to Com
pany C. He says Captain Connell had
been fully warned and had taken
what he (Major Foote) considered ev
ery necessary precaution.
Information that a plot was brew
ing among the Filipinos came to Ma
jor Foote from a priest, who said it
was in the plans of the populace at
both Balanglga and Basey to attack
the garrisons and that the Basey gar
rison was to be attacked from a cock
pit in the rear of the barracks. Or
ders were immediately given to demol
lah the cockpit and extra guards were
There is intense feeling throughout
the army because of the massacre,
which would not be the case to any
such extent had it been the work of
ordinary Insurgents. The latter might
nave been expected to commit such
an outrage. Feeling is particularly
Intense in military circles because the
authors of the massacre were paciflcos,
most of whom had taken the oath of
allegiance and many of whom, in
cluding the president of Balanglga,
were actually holding office.
Some of the after effects are al
ready shown at many points, partic
ularly at Baulan and Caloocan, in
the province of Batangas, and Manila,
where disaffection is manifesting It
self, although it is not likely to be
allowed to go far.
On the other band, the officers and
troops at all the garrisons throughout
the archipelago feel that the disas
ter conveys a lesson that in itself calls
for increased vigilance.
Considerable interest attaches to the
case of Oakley Brooke, a military
prisoner to be deported. The supreme
court recently issued a writ of habeas
corpus, directing the production of the
prisoner, but the military authorities
refused to deliver him on the ground
that the only tribunal having juris
diction over a military prisoner was
the supreme court. While the Philip
pine courts were established by the
war power of the president, the mili
tary authorities contend that they are
to be regarded as provost courts until
congress has acted.
The members of the supreme court
and a majority or the members of
the Philippine commission hold oppo
site views, but it is understood that
the attorney general believes the mil
itary contention to be correct

LONDON. Oct. 7. A fairly well at
tended meeting of anarchists was held
in a hall in Tottenham Court Road
to hear a lecture on the assassination
of President McKinley by R. E. Kelly
of New York. The audience, largely
composed of foreigners, applauded all
references to "Saint" Czolgosz and his
meritorious act. The speakers includ
ed Em lie Mastlle, the Italian anar
chist, who described the assassination
as "A deed of heroism." Kelly's lec
ture was a wild harrangue in de
nunciation of Mr. McKinley's political
career. He declared that they did not
try to justify the assassination, but
rather to explain It as the outcome
of the oppression of workmen by cap
ital. "If the killing of McKinley opens
the eyes of the capitalists and induces
them to treat the working people bet
ter," cried the agitator, "then great
good will have been done."

Columbia returned to its anchorage

For the second time it has now suc

Sir Thomas Llpton, standing on the
bridge of Erin, led his guests in three
hearty hurrahs for the successful de
fender. "Columbia is the better boat," be
said, "and deserves to be cheered."
The series of races Just closed will

satisfaction of knowing that his golden

Yesterday's race on paper was the
closest of the Beries, but because of the
flunking of the wind on the beat fforae
as a contest of the relative merits of
the yachts it is not to be compareu
with the magnificent, truly-run and
royally fought battles of Saturday and
those of Thursday last. The condi
tions of the race at the starTyesterday
wsrs very similar to those of Thurs
day. The wind was strong and from
the shore embroidering the sea with
foam and piling up no swell Ideal
conditions for the challenger.
The racers were sent away before
the wind, each carrying penalty for
crossing the line after the handicap
gun. No official record Is kept of the
time after that gun is fired, but the
experts with stop watches estimated
Columbia's handicap at fifteen seconds
and Shamrock's at thirty seconds. The
contest of the yachts fleeing before the
following wind was picturesque, but
not exciting. The big racers, like
gulls, with outstretched pinions, bad
every inch of canvas spread, all of
their light, sails, including bulging
spinnakers and balloon jib topsails.
While taking his defeat gamely, Sir
Thomas Llpton made no attempt to

be said. "I cant' hide that I thought

NEW YORK, Oct 4. The Journal

of his first official acts wag to author
ise one of the most spectacular reduc

ever before been made. This waa
the reduction announced in Tuesday'
dispatches. It applies only to the sec

The cut in price at Missouri river
points was to 3'4 cents per pound net
for granulated. On Tuesday the net
quotation was 5.03 cents. In other
.words, Mr. Havemeyer has authorized
a cut Bligbtly In excess of 1V4 ceDjts
' To understand the Importance of
this cut to beet sugar manufacturers
it should be mentioned that the prac
tice of the beet sugar people Is to
make contracts for their entire pro
duction at prices based on the selling
price of the sugar combine on tbe
date of delivery. The beet people
have heretofore been easily able to
dispose of all their sugar at a dis
count of 10 points from the American
Sugar Refining company's figures. This
means, if the beet people live up to
their contracts, that they will receive
3 2-5 cents per pound for their pro
duct It is understood, however, that
the beet sugar people will refuse to
recognize the cut made by the Amer
ican Sugar Refining company on the
technical ground that it is in re
stralnt of trade. The beet sugar re
finers of Utah, Colorado, California
and Nebraska are the refiners con
cerned. It is expected that this cut
will have an unsettling influence upon
the local market, but It Is not ex
pected that It will be followed by any
important cut In prices In the eastern
No change was made In the sugar
combine's prices for eastern markets
yesterday (Wednesday) and the differ
ence of 1.10 cents per pound still
holds between the price of the raw
and the manufactured article.
The American Sugar Refining com
pany people claim that beet sugar
manufacturers can produce granulated
sugar at 2 cents per pound and
that there is, therefore, a good profit
even at 3 cents a pound. This Is de
nied by the beet people.

but h 'at steers aa a general thing
were common. The name was true of the
corn-feda. The scarcity of good call If,
naturally hail a tendency to make buy
era indifferent and the lllieral receipts
all tbe week also save them an eseum
for buying conservatively. The market
was far from being a-tlve. and It was
late before the bulk of the offerings whs
disposed of. There were only Just a few
oorn-fed steers In the yards and most of
those were on the commonlsh order. Oood
stuff would probably have sold about
steady, but the undesirable grades were,
?low sale, and In most cases a Utile
lower. There were close to seventy-five
cars of cows and heifers on sale, and the
market was steady to a little lower.
Dulls, calves and slugs sold at about
yesterday's prices, where the quality
wa satisfactory, but otherwise they were
very slow and lower. There were not
very many western beef steers Included
In the receipts this morning, and while
the good kinds wild about steady, the
common grades were slow and generally
a little lower. Cows sold steady to a
little lower, and good heavy feeders wtre
steady and active. Common feeders were
not wanted at any price.
Hogs There was by no means a heavy
run of hogs and sellers for that reason
held their droves at stronger prices. Buy
ers started in bidding just about steady
with yesterday, but they only got a few
loads, as sellers were asking an advance
of 2'yilJC. Packers would not pay It and
so It was rather late, before very much
was done. They finally, however, wern
forced to raise their bids and the bulk of
the hogs sold at K57V4 and $0.50, or a
shade stronger than yesterday. Home of
the choicer loads went at JS.Gi'i and
from that up to K 75.
Sheep The receipts of sheep and lamlm
were liberal, making the supply for tho
week exceptionally heavy, i'ackers ore
evidently pretty well filled up, as they
did not take hold with much life, and tho
morning was well advanced before very
much was done. As a general thing the
better grades of ewes and wethers suld
at Just about yesterday's prices, but thn
lambs they tried to buy a little lower.
particularly If the quality was not very
good. It was a slow market from start
to finish on fat stuff, but feeders wer
