The president took his Infirmity good naturedly and . extended a happy greeting to several persona whom he recognized aa he waa being-wheeled to 'the carriage. He was. attired aa ttexwl except, that the tboe on the left foot waa off.. He Jokingly remarked" trt a crowd of bTTicers and train men, who wore Mandlng around looking pn aympathetlcally, that he 'felt better than he looked.

Here' the president waa assisted by the' attendanta to an ordinary cane, seat chair placed on the pavement and, when he had become comfortably ' seated.'""a "half dozen ushers and policemen carried him to his' r6om on the second floor of hla temporary, home. This floor contains three large rooma and a hall with a bath at the extreme' rear. The room frosting on Lafayette Square had been made Into a Bitting room and the other two Into bedrooma.

Dr. Lung, the regular White House physician, will have Immediate 'charge-of the president's case and should It be deemed necessary will consult Drs. Rixey and I'rle In case of further treatment of the wound.

Not only has the country grown rich, but It la growing richer. Great crops insure another year of prosperity. ActlTlty Is the rule In every branch of trade. The main trouble la that the trans portation facilities, splendid as they are, are scarcely adequate to move the business pressing upon them. The country has actually grown faster than its machinery for moving the crops and manufactures.

INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 24 The third an nual convention of Spanish-American Vet erans came to a cloee today, after the election of Colonel D. John Foster of Chi cago as commander-in-chief and the desig nation of Milwaukee as the next convention city. A resolution was unanimously passed fa voring a consolidation of the Spanish-American War Veterans and the Spanish War Veterans. It was Incorporated in the reso lution that a committee of eight be ap pointed to confer with a like committee from the national army of Spanish War Veterans. The committee wae given en tire authority to complete the organization In all details. The Llller embrogllo waa finally settled by that gentleman formally resigning his office as adjutant general and offering a written apology for his discourteous con duct of Monday In calling Colonel Harri son a liar, and for his other offenses. The auditing committee, which was ap pointed to Investigate Llller's accounts, re ported through Colonel Hutchlngs ot Iowa that Llller's books were In such an un systematic condition that no detailed re port could be made. The committee sug gested that an expert accountant be em ployed to disentangle the financial affairs of the order, and stated that as far aa could be learned the cash balance of the order is $231 and Its liabilities are $2,441. It was decided that no settlement be made with Ltller until the affairs of the order should be untangled. It was also decided that no paper or periodicals be made tbe official organ of the order. This waa a blow at Llller's paper, which Is published at Lancaster, Ta., and which hitherto has been used. Tonight William C. Ltl ler said In reference to an apology he had been required to make for calling Colonel Russell H. Harrison a liar, that he re tracted every word of it. This statement was made to Lieutenant Governor Gilbert, Colonel E. J. Nlmmlck of Chicago and others Llller said be offered his resigna tion In order to prevent being discharged from the order, as such a discharge would handtcap him In organizing a new order, which, be said, he Intended to organize within a short time.

Of all tha executive problems following In the train of the Spanish war, the prob lem of the Philippines alone remained. Success there had not then been demon- trated. and It waa still possible that the failure . there tniaht lead the American people to withdraw power from republican hands. Accordingly the Filipino policy of the administration, waa attacked. The whole army and its generals were Involved In common denunciation.

The committee on credentials reported In tavor of seating, the Clark delegations from Silver Bow and Oranlte counties and tbe report was adopted. Senator Charles W. Hoffman ot Bozeman', .a well known supporter of Sen ator Clark, was made permanent chairman. The platform pledges the party to "con tinuing loyalty to the principles of demo cratic party as enunciated at the national convention held In Kansas City." It en dorses the state administration, and com mends the action of the representatives In congress on all public questions. It ap proves the Irrigation law; favors legislation to prevent the immigration of the vicious; favors speedy construction of tbe Isthmian canal; favors strict enforcement of the Chi nese exclusion act; favors the throwing open of Indian reservations not absolutely needful for the Indians to settlement; fa vors the election of United States senators by direct vote of the people; favors action by the state and national legislatures that J -" ' " ---'"- ... b - -avftll prevent forest fires; pledges the party to the eight hour law on the atatute books; favors the assessment of railroad property for purposes of taxation on tbe same basis as other property, and commends the state board of equalisation for taking an initial Step In that direction. It opposes the wielding ot political power by corporations, and says tbat the consolidation of leading railway systems and the formation of trusts and pools requires stricter, supervision by the state and federal governments, and "de mands the exercises of such powers and the imposition of such restrictions In the control of railroads as will protect the people from the dangerous consolidation ot competing lines." Opposition is declared to monopolies, and such tariff legislation Is favored as will provide adequate means to defray the ex penses of the government economically ad ministered. DEMOCRATS USE THEIR FISTS Preliminary Meetlna; of Connecticut , Delegates Ends In Free-for-All Mlxnp. NEW HAVEN, Sept. 24. The delegates to tbe democratic atate convention assem bled here tonight to transact business pre liminary to tbe convention tomorrow. The proceedings wound up with a fracas whleh developed In the New London caucus dur ing a debate Involving tbe endorsement of one or the other of two candidates for gov ernor. Hot words were followed by scuf fles, and then came fisticuffs. -No one was seriously injured, but the caucus went to pieces ia perfect pande monium. In addition to the heat of the gubernatorial conference, there were thrust Into the situation two other elements. A large party ot "Kansas City platform demo crats" bad announced its purpose to de mand of the convention the endorsement of the Kansae City platform, practically as fcurlng a repetition of the recent Massa chusetts convention. The Economlo league also appeared for recognition and endorse ment of their candidates. These two re quests were at variances with the state caucus, and as a result the situation at midnight was aa confusing as It was un compromising. VOLCANO PAINTS PICTURES In Coarse of Ernptlon Soufrlere Fills Heavena with Fantastic Flame and Smoke. KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent. Sept. 24. The eruption cf the Soufrlere volcano yesterday was a dazzling phenomenon. At 6 p. m the crater emitted a huge efflorescing cloud which kept rapidly ascending, changing from black to gray and then to silver color, coruscating quickly and suddenly until It appeared as if a red cauliflower had bloomed on its crest. This cast glare over the city, bnt proved harmless The eruption lasted about five minutes. The cable company reports further and unprecedented difficulties In the attempts to repair tbe cables between St. Lucia and St. Vincent and St. Lucia and Grenada One end of the St. Lucia aectlon Is burled under eighteen fathoms of water. A strange fact I that St. Lucia, lying be tween St. Vincent and Martinique, and only forty miles from the seat of volcanic disturbances has experienced no tremors during the eruptions and only tbe faintest sounds were heard on one occasion when loud rumblings were heard as far as St KItts on the north and Trinidad to the south, both 100 mile distant.

In egotlallna with the Pane Htgnrdlng the Friars and Their Lands. WASHINGTON, Sept. 24. The bureau of Insular affairs today furnished to the press copies of the speech made by Governor Taft on the occasion of the reception ten dered him when he arrived In the Philip pine Islands. In the course of the speech Governor Taft ssld: You can be very sure that It will be only a matter of a year or two before the Amer ican duty on Philippines products will be reduced to so small a tlKUie as to make It practically free trade. Ielsys In congres sional action-on the tariff and postpone ment of the time lor a popular assembly are only the outgrowth of a conservatism due to a doubt on the part of many as to the real conditions In the islands, a doubt, 1 may say, which nothing will so quickly dispel as a quiet prosecution of agricul ture and other pursuits snd an avoiding of useless political agitation for the next year. ' "The manv nuestlons renulrlns- settlement between the Philippine government and the church led the president and secretary of war to direct me to visit Rome for a con ference with the pope, to see if a basis of settlement might not be reached. After an audience with the pope the Instructions were referred to a committee or cardinals and an answer was given me agreeing gen erally with all the purposes stated In the instructions, which Included among other things the purrhuse of the friars' lands by the government. This answer proposed that further nego tiation he had between an apostolic dele gate and myself In Manila. With the hope of having less to do In Manila and by au thority of the secretary 1 replied by sug gesting to the pope the form of a contract to be Blamed In Rome, submitting thn noes. lions at issue to a tribunal of arbitration to consist of two members appointed by the pope, iwo ny mis government and me nrtn to be appointed by the viceroy of India, tsaoatlona for Arbitration. The questions were: First. The price to be paid for the friars' land. Second. The price to be paid for the oc cupation of parish churchea and convents by American troops. Third. The disposition of educational and charitable trusts, Including the San Jose college case. The contract Included a covenant that the members of the four great religious orders, who were all Spaniards, should leave the Islands In two years after the first payment was made for the lands and that only secular priests or non-Spanish members of the regular clergy should act as parish priests. The Vatican agreed to sign such a con tract, excepting the last covenant, which he declined to sign, first, because It re late to the administration of religious mailers noi me proper euoject or a com mercial contract; second, because by sign Ing such a covenant It would give lust of fense to Spain, whose subjects the friars Were and as such were entitled to remain in the islands under the treaty of Paris. end because the Vatican old not wish to give countenance to what were regarded as tne exaggerated charges against them. Instead of this, however, the pope said to Cardinal Kampolla that he Intended to re organise the church In tne isiauua, to i- call the friars now In the islands from political Intermeddling to the institutes ot their order, to provide ecclesiastical edu cation to the natives so that the priest hood ultimately ahould be entirely native. and to Introduce priests of other nation ality thsn Spanish, chiefly from the United States, into the Islands,. He said that the money for the lands would go to the church for the benefit of the church In the Philippines and not to the orders, and he finally reiterated what had been said earlier In the correspondence that no priest would be sent to any parish In the Islands whom a majority or the catholics of the parish did not wish to receive. Hornr to Orlgrlnal Method. In view of the un wMMnrneps of the vatl Cn' to enter Irito k conrract for the definite removal of the Spanish friars the secretary of war was unwilling to enter Into a con tract obligating the Philippine government and the American government to pay such Indefinite sum without further Investigation and preferred to recur to the original method of negotiation proposed by the Vatican through an apostolic aelegate. who In to visit the Islands with authority to sell the lands, to settle the rentals dun and to agree upon the question of charitable and educational trusts. I nia basis was agreed to and negotiations are to be continued hereafter. All the data necessary have been submitted by the representative of the church to the government. It will thus be seen that the negotiations tinon manv of the Issues are onlv hertin. though the sale of the lands has been ap proved and that on the question of the re turn or me mars to me parisnes. tne mat ter la eompletety tn the hands of the peo ple of each parish for a settlement bv a quiet, peaceable and lawful expression of tneir desire to receive or not to receive any priest.
