The conservatives are headed by
Gen. Marie Monocal and Dr. Rafael
Montoro , the presidential and vice
presidential candidates respectively ,
while Gen. Jose Gomez and his former
bitter rival in the party leadership , Alfred -
fred Zayas , are the nominees of the
liberal party , the Miguelista and Za-
yaista factions , which finally united
their forces in support of Gen. Gomez
on the understanding that he would
aiot be nominated for a second term. It
5s assured beyond peradventure that
absolute fairness will characterize the
elections , about which safeguard has
"been cast by the provisional govern
ment. Both of the political leaders
"have given assurances that they will
accept loyally the result of the popular-
verdict. There is practically no dif
ferences in the platforms of the two
parties , both having as their chief
planks the preservation of the repub
lic , equal rights for all citizens , the
encouragement of agriculture and
commerce and the maintenance of
friendly relations with the United
States. The struggle is. frankly , for
the possession of the government and

MAY SUCCEED PLATT.
Rooso\elt Again i > Linked with Sen-
That President Roosevelt may be the
successor of Senator Platt in the sen
ate is considered by many in Washing
ton as not at all improbable.
Those who regard this as possible
declare that they have assurance from
the president himselfthat he would
not be entirely averse to the accept
ance of the senatorial office under con
ditions as they will be after the 4th of
So far as is known he has made no
recent expression on the subject , but
he has said within the past year that
with Mr. Taft as president he would
not feel the same hesitancy about en
tering the senate that he would feel
with someone in the White House with
whom his relations were not as inti
mate as they are with Mr. Taft.
His general attitude has been ad
verse to entering the senate because
he has felt that as a member of that
body he would be called upon to crit
icise his successor in the presidency ,
and this he would feel a delicacy about
doing. He has said , however that
knowing Mr. Taft as he does know him ,
and agreeing with him in all essentials
as he does , he is confident that there
would not be any occasion for antag
onism. He has not gone to that ex
tent at any time of indicating that he
would desire the office even with Taft
as president , but merely has said that
with him in that position his chief
reason for not desiring the senatorial
position would disappear.
Even this much has not been said ,
since there has been no uncertainty of
Mr. Taft's entering the White House ,
but the president's outline of his atti
tude is now recalled as offering a po si-
ble entanglement in Xew York and as
making an opening for the continuance
of Mr. Roosevelt's public career.

IMPATIENT WITH TURK.
Negotiations Bulgarian Repiv-en-
tatives Proceeding Slowly.
The negotiations between Bulgaria
and Turkey , according to official ad
vices arc proceeding slowly and un
satisfactorily at Constantinople. The
Bulgaricin government is reticent on
the matter of the terms extended , but
there is undisguised impatient in of
ficial circles here over the porte's di
latory tactics. Instead of treating
with M. Liaptcheff , the Bulgarian min
ister of commerce , directly , KSamil
Pasha , the grand vizier , has delegated
three under officials to conduct the ne-
otiations. It is thought that foreign
influence and dissensions in the Tur
kish cabinet are responsible for the
grand vizier's circumspection.
M. LJaptcheff has been employed to
negotiate a customs union between the
two countries , a junction of railways
at Kostendil. in the southwest of Bul

BANKERS TO PRISON.
i Chas. W. Morse and A. II. Curtiy
! Found Guilty.
Charles W. Morse , of Xew York , un
til a year ago a dominant figure in the
world of finance and Alfred H. Curtis ,
; former president of the Xational Bank
of North America , were found guilty
Thursday night in the criminal branch
I of the United States circuit court on
j charges of misapplication of funds and
j falsifying the books of the bank. There
| was also the additional charge of conj -
j spiracy against the prisoners , but the
jury acquitted the men on this count.
Within five minutes of the time the
jury had rendered its verdict Judge
Hugh had refused to entertain a mo
tion for bail and had committed the
two bankers to the Tombs prison.
The judge said that he would hear
any motions the lawyers for the pris
oners desired to make at 10:30 o'clock
The federal statutes provide a mini
mum penalty of five years imprison
ment for falsifying the books of a
bank , and a penalty of two years im
prisonment and $5,000 fine , or both ,
for misapplication of funds.
Xo alternative but imprisonment it
provided for conviction on the charge
of falsifying the books of a bank.
The maximum penalty on this charge
is ten years imprisonment.
The jury recommended clemency for
Mr. Curtis , but made no recommen
dation in the case of Mr. Morse.
The scene in the court room was
dramatic. Mrs. Morse and Mrs. Curtis
had remained In the court room nearly
all day awaiting the verdict. Mrs.
Curtis showed signs of giving way to
her emotion a number of times and
once when the jury returned to the
court room to receive instructions on
the manner in which the conspiracy
charge should be considered Mrs.
Morse broke down and sobbed.
DEBS VOTE HALF MILLION.
Result a Disappointment to Sociali.-t
Attention began to turn Thursday to
the vote of the socialist , prohibition
and independence parties. It appears
the socialists have been disappointed in
their widely avowed expectations of
casting "one million votes for Debs"
and in some states have even fallen be
low their vote four years ago. In gen
eral , however , their vote showed a ma
terial increase. The total vote
throughout the country for Debs is es
timated at 500.000.
In Chicago the socialists polled 45.-
000 in 1904. but on Tuesday they reg
istered less than 20,000 votes.
Cincinnati and Cleveland heretofore
trong socialist centers , according to
the leaders of the party , polled a great
ly decreased vote. The Milwaukee so
cialist vote shows an increase of 1,000
over two years ago. and in Oklahoma
the vote is about doubled.
As for the prohibition vote , its totals
present a great disapointment o those
present agreatdisnppointnient to those
who expected the "prohibition wave"
"dry" column during the past two
years would show surprising increases
in the vote of the pnrty which makes
the legal prohibition of the liquor traf-
ilic its chief issue.
GERMANY AND FRANCE CLASH.
Diplomatic * Situation is E.\ceedin ij
While it is not believed in official
circles that Germany will go to the ex
tent of making the Cassablanca inci
dent the subject of an ultimatum , a
considerable degree of disquietude exists -
* ists in Paris and the opinion continues
to be held that Germany is seeking to
nflict diplomatic humiliation upon
France. An extraordinary session of
the cabinet was held Thursday after
noon and a decision not to accede to
the German demands was unanimous-
'y ratified. At the same time it was
igreed that France should show her
conciliatory disposition by offering a
mode of egress from the present dead
lock that should be honorable to both
countries. The trouble at Casablanca
occurred in September.
It was rumored in Paris Thursday
afternoon that Prince von Badolin ,
German ambassador , has been recall

HEARST CASE FEDERALCOURT. .
Haskcll's $ (500.000 Libel Suit Goes
Over to Uncle Sain.
The $600,000 libel suit of Governor
Charles X. Haskell against William
Randolph Heart was removed from
the state to the federal court Tuesday
on an order signed by Judge Lee S.
Estelle. The petition asking for the
removal was signed by Mr. Hearst
himself before a New York notary and
was filed by John W. Battin , Hearst's
local attorney. It set forth that Mr.
Haskell is a citizen of Oklahoma and
Mr. Hearst of Xc\v York , and asks the
case be removed under the rule that
suits between citizens of different
states may be tried in federal court
where the amount is over $2,000.
The removal of the case may raise
the legal point which was discussed
when the suit was filed , whether a suit
in which both parties are nonresidents
dents of the state can be removed to
federal court. There was a difference
of opinion among attorneys on this
point and it will probably be threshed
out before Judge Munger on a motion
to remand the suit to the district

eral court than in the state court. "
said Ed P. Smith , one of Ilaskell's at
torneys , "if the federal court has juris
diction. The state court cannot give
punitive damages while the federal
court can. If we try it in state court
we cannot recover on our claim for
$300,000 punitive damages. If we try
it in federal court the jury can return
punitive damages in case it sees tit. If
we are satisfied federal court has juris
diction over the case we will not fight
Mr. Hearst's order of removal. If.
however , we decide the federal court
has no jurisdiction we will fight it be
cause if the court has no right to try
the case , any judgment v/e might se
cure would be void. "
The question of the jurisdiction of
the court will be threshed out in fed
eral court. The order has been sign
ed and the district clerk's office is now
getting out a transcript to file in fed
eral court. '
Mr. Hearst filed a $500 bond as re
quired by law. It is signed by the Xa-
tional Surety company , of Xew York.
BOY KILLED BY COMPANION.
One Young Hunter is Accidentally
Shot by Another.
Edgar Lumbard , a 14-year-old son
of D. A. Liumbard , cashier of the First
Xational bank at Fremont , was acci
dentally shot in the head and killed by
Leslie Whitcomb , a 14-year-old son of
E. L. Whitcomb , while out hunting on
the Platte river.
The two boys , accompanied by Basil
Sparks , another boy of about the same
age , were out duck hunting on the
sandbars southwest of the dyke about
three miles west of the city. At the
time the accident occurred the Sparks
boy was about half a mile away from
the others. Leslie says they saw aleck
( lock of ducks coming and they both
kneeled down to shoot. As the ducks
came they were in line with the boys.
Leslie fired and just at that instant
Edgar stood up , the charge striking
him in the back of the head and carry
ing away the side of the skull. He
then ran to the boat and went after
the Sparks boy and the two wrapped
the body of their companion in an
overcoat and carried it to the boat and
started for the dyke. On account of
the sandbars they were obliged to get
out and pull the boat. Both got in
the water and quicksand up to their
armpits and reached the dyke almost
exhausted and chilled after struggling
with the boat for an hour and a half.
