Havana.—New Year's day will wit

of Cuba by .he army of pacification,
which has been in possession of the
island since the beginning of the pro
visional government in October, 1906.
The first provisional regiment of
marines, numbering about 900, which
will be among the first troops to leave,
is now concentrating from various
posts at Camp Columbia. About half
this regiment will sail from Havana on
January 1, on the cruiser Prairie,
which arrived here Christmas eve,
bound for Newport News. The
Prairie will return about the middle of
the month and embark the remainder.

and D. Twenty-eight infantry, will
embark on the transport Sum ter at
Matanzas on December 31. From there
the transport will proceed to Havana

27 for Newport News. This leaves
only two companies of engineers and
two batallions of the Seventeenth in
fantry, under Colonel Pitchel, who will
remain at Camp Columbia. These
troops will not embark until April 1.
which will complete the evacuation.
The embarkation will be effected
with as little ceremony as possible
and it is probable that their departure
will he attended with as little force as
marked their landing. The purpose
in deferring the departure of a por
1 tion of the Seventeenth infantry until
April 1 has been the subject of con
siderable speculation, but it Is be
lieved this was agreed upon at a con
ference between Governor Magoon and
President-elect Gomez. It is net
thought to be a measure of precaution,
for which not the slightest necessity
is apparent, but it probably is for the
purpose of keeping the barracks and
quarters in good order until it is pos
sible to turn over to the Cuban author
ities a model camp for occupation by
the new- permanent army under com
mand of General Pio Guerra, the
nucleus of which will be formed, it is
intended, with the present corps of
Cuban artillery and 1,000 members of

present session, but the committee will

There has been some discussion of
the advisability of attaching the zone

UNION LABOR LEADERS
GIVEN PRISON TERMS
Gompers, Mitchell and Morrison Sentenced to Twelve, Nine
and Six Months Respectively and Severely Scored
in the Bucks Stove Case.
Washington.—Twelve months in jail
for Samuel Gompers. president; nine
months for John Mitchell, one of the
vice-presidents, and six months for ;
Frank Morrison, secretary, all of the j
American Federation of Labor, was
the sentence imposed by Justice I
Wright of the supreme court of the j
District, of Columbia Wednesday for
contempt of court in violating an or
der previously issued enjoining them
from placing on the “Unfair” or "We
don’t patronize" list the Bucks Stove
& Range Company of St. Louis, Mo.
All three of the defendants were in
court when sentence was pronounced,
and notice of an appeal to the court of
appeals of the District of Columbia
at once was filed, Gompers being re
leased on $5,000 bond; Mitchell on
$4,000 and Morrison on $3,000. In ad
dition to the wife and daughter of
Gompers, there were present a number
of local labor leaders, and others who
were attracted by the notice that a
decision of the famous case would be
announced. Mr. Gompers' family were
Gompers Weeps When Sentenced.
With tears coursing down his own
cheeks, President Gompers heard the
order of the court which condemned
him to prison for a year. Both Mitch
ell and Morrison seemed stunned by
the sentence, although Mitchell ap~
neared to be the least concerned.
Asked if he had anything to say why
sentence should not be pronounced.
President Gompers declared that he
had not consciously violated any law.
There was much he would like to say,
he said, but he could not do it at that
time. He added, however, that “this is
h struggle of the working people of
our country and it is a struggle of the
working people for the right.
Mitchell and Morrison confined
themselves to an indorsement of what
Gompers had said.
The decision of Justice Wright,
which consumed two hours and 20
minutes in reading, was one of the
most scathing arraignments that ever
:ame from the bench in this city.

he said, to ‘‘stand! Hands off, until

a studied, determined, defiant conflict
“precipitated in the light of open
day, between the decrees of a tribunal
ordained by the government of the.
federal union, and of the tribunals of
another federation grown up in the

OIL TRUST OUSTED
THREE COMPANIES ARE DRIVEN
EACH IS FINED $50,£00
Standard of Indiana, Republic and
Waters-Pierce Found Guilty of
Conspiracy by Supreme
Jefferson City, Mo.—Declaring that
ihe Standard Oil Company of Indiana, '
the Republic Oil Company of Ohio and
the Waters-Pierce Oil Company of Mis
souri had conspired and combined to
monopolize the oil business in this
state, the supreme court of Missouri
Wednesday issued a decree ousting all
three from the commonwealth, and
fining them $50,000 each.
The decree against the Waters
Pierce Oil Company is tempered by
the proviso that it may continue in
business if, by March 1, 1909, it can
show to the court that it has taken
steps to operate as an independent
concern and has satisfied the judg
ment against it. The other companies
are given until March 1, 1909, to wind
up their affairs in the state.
Decision Is Most Sweeping.
The decision, which was unanimous
on the part of the seven judges, is so
sweeping that Attorney General Had
ley and Gov. Folk hail it as the end of
illegal commercial combinations in
Missouri, and the former asserts that,
in conjunction with the decision of the
supreme court of the United States in
the tobacco trust case, it will affect
similar suits in other states.
Attorney General Hadley, who has
prosecuted the Missouri case since its
inception in March. 1905, will become
governor in less than a month and
then will be charged with the enforce
ment of the decree issued.
Tried to Compromise Suit.
The attorney general followed up
the promulgation by the court with a
statement in which he asserted that
attempts had been made to compro
mise the suit.
“At least three efforts have been
made by attorneys for the oil compa
nies to get me to compromise the
cases," he said. "I invariably told
them that the ultimate decision must
be made by the courts, and refused
their offers. It was intimated to me
that the oil complies were willing to
accept a good large fine and concede
a victory to the state. The proposi
tions were never reduced to details,
but they were entirely legitimate and
such as might be- made in any other
form of litigation.”
Points in the Decision.
In coming to its decision the court
"If such abuses as those complained
of are permitted to continue, untram
meled, it would be only a question
of time until they would sap the
strength and patriotism from the very
foundations of our government, over
turn the republic, destroy our free in
stitutions and substitute, in lieu there
of, some other form of govern
The principal indictments against
the companies are:
"That they have created and become
members of a pool, trust, agreement,
confederation, combination, arrange
ment and understanding among them
selves for the following purposes:
“First, to regulate, fix and control
the prices to be paid by retail dealers
and others in the state of Missouri for
the refined products of petroleum sold
and offered for sale in this state.
"Second to control and limit the
trade in refined products of petroleum
in this state.
“Third, to control, limit and prevent
competition in the business of buying
and selling refined products of petro
leum in this state between themselves
and others engaged in like business,
“Fourth, to mislead the public into
the belief that they were separate and
distinct corporations and pursuing an
independent business as legitimate
competitors in the purchase ami sale
of the products of petroleum.”

absolutely rotten in every sense of the
word. It was intimated strongly that
over three score councilmen are “easy

Out of a mass of testimony it was
gleaned that a majority of the council
