HAVANA. Sept. 9. Government, military
and railroad omclala and -The newspaper
correspondents were thrown Into a state of
excitement tins evening vy men wuu uu
arrived here from I'aso Real with stories
that the armored train which loft Havana
Friday and met with various obstacles be
yond Herradura, had been thrown from the
tracks and Its 300 men, machine guns,
horses and equipment captured. A these
talea were confirmed by the Western Rail
road's first telegraphic advices from I'aso
Real they were believed to be true until
authentic reports of actual occurrences
were wired by thore who had returned to
Paso Real from the scene.
The real facts of the case sre that Colonel
Avalos, who waa believed to be aurroumlod
In Plnar del Rio City, and the armored
train made a Junction east of Consolaclon
del Bur, and the government forces to thst
extent are Improved. The news of this
fact caused much relief In official circles.
The train proceeded Saturday evening
from Pnso Real to two and one-third miles
east of Consolaclon del Stir, at which point
the rails had been removed, and replaced
a locomotive' and three cars which had
been thrown from the trsck. The Insur
gents attacked, but were driven off by the
two machine gun, handled by the Amer
ican captain, Webster. '
It Is believed that many Insurgents were
killed, but the number is not known.
Mesnwhlle a large portion of Colonel
Avnlos' force had come esstward from
Plnsr del Rio for the purpose of making a
Junction with the machine gun corps. At
Consolaclon del Bur their advance was dis
puted by a large band of Insurgent and ft
lively fight enaued. The Insurgents were
driven off and several of them were killed
or wounded. Avalos and his men contin
ued their Journey eastward this morning
and made a Junction, first with the cavalry
force of Caplnln Ravenna, which la scout
ing ahead and Anally m-th the disabled
troop train. The train .has not been mo
lested since the Junction was effected, but
the bridge over the Santa Clara river east

As the bridges westward near Puerta

telegraph line continue In use to Paso
Tonight 216 men and four machine guns,
commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Clews,
atarted for Paso Real. The sending of this
force was hastened by the false new of
a disaster.
Captain Ravenna, one lieutenant and four
privates wounded, are the qnly casualties
reported In the Consolaclon del Sur oper
ations. - ..-.'. :
There is aom alarm In Havana on ac
count of the nearnes to the city of ev
eral, hundred Insurgent belonging to the
forces of Ashbert, Loynai and Castillo,
some of whom are often Been in' the hill
at Jesus del Monte, In the southern ex
tremity of the city. Intimations' received
'from these bands are to the effect that
they are merely awaiting the outcome of
peace negotiations, practically all the In
surgents In the province of Havana and
Santa Clara hating ceased operations for
the present In accordance with the tenta
tive agreement with the peace commis
sioners. The fourth week of the rebellion opens
with the government forces better equipped
and Improved In discipline, but enlistments
are slow. President Palma's action In call
ing a special session of congress Is meeting
with some adverse criticism. Many per
sons believe that no good purpose will be
served by a discussion of the csuses pf the
war and of pesce proposals fov the congreas.
The 'veterans' peace committee continue
hopeful of being able ' to persuade Pino
Guerra to cease activities temporarily and
possibly of inducing him to come to Havana
and Join In the negotiations for peace, but
the attitude of the leading - liberals con
tinues to preclude hopes of an Immediate
peace. At the veterans' meeting this after
noon a resolution was formally adopted to
use ' all peaceful meana to stop the war
and If these failed the sufficient army
be raised to crush If by g rce.
Meanwhile Intervention by the United
States I being discussed on all sides. Many
Cubans who hitherto were not favorable
to Intervention now believe that It will he
the only meana of placing Cuba perma
nently In Its rightful position.
Reports received by the government say
that 100 revolutionists were In the encounter
near Consolaclon del Sur, but the reports
are not considered authoritative. The fight
Is reported to have already taken place.

east of Consolaclon del Sur. The train waa
surrounded by several hundred Insurgents
commanded by Pino Guerro In person and
sustained a Are all Saturday night and
until 9 o'clock this morning. The train
would have been captured but for the
timely arrival of Colonel Avolos and 400
men, who had fought their way through
from Consolaclon del Sur.
When this force arrived the revolutionist
returned westward after having destroyed
the bridge over the Santa Clara river and
some culvert and cutting wire near Her
radura. The revolutionists are ramned to

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Sept. 9.-(SpecUl.)-From
the beginning of the Spanish-American war
to this September 1 not an extremely long
time ago, but it Is sn extremely long, aa
well as strenuous time to Charlra E. Ma
goon, governor of the canal sone and
United Statea minister to the Republic of
Panama. In the eight years since the be
ginning of the war with- Spain, Charles
E. Magoon ha made possibly the most
phenomenal record of any man In govern
mental life. In tbat time he haa been a
law clerk ef the war department connected
with the bureau of Insular affairs; law ad
viser to that bureau and the rlghthand man
of the then assistant secretary of war,
George D. Melklejohn. and still later gov
ernor of the Panama canal one. United
States minister of the Republic of Panama,
member of the Isthmanlan Canal Commis
sion and now slated to become vice gover
nor general of the Philippines and governor
general, to succeed General James F. 8mlth.
Our history doe not contain a more
rapid rise In departmental service than
this history of Charles E. Msgoon of Ne
braska, who, when he was a law -student,
connected with the firm of O. P. Mason
and C. D. Wheedon of Lincoln, wa looked
upon as a good deal of a "trlfler," as our
colored brother say. Magoon was usually
seen about the street In the day time In
terested In sport and everything that leads
to an outdoor life. But at night time he
wa not found. He was using the night
hours for study and review and when As
sistant Secretary Melklejohn brought Ma
goon to Washington as law clerk to the
Insular division of the war department, he
knew the calibre of the man. The friends
and associates of .Charles E. Magoon only
knew him aa a "good fellow," naturally
bright, but inclined to lastneas.
Resnlts Prove His Worth.
His raqfd promotion and hi achieve
ments chow how far wrong the judgment
were of Judge Magoon, who goes to the
Philippine shortly In somewhat the same
position occupied by Secretary Taft, when
tm was governor general of the Philip
pines. The Philippine question and our colonial
policy la a matter of large moment to the
constructive statesmanship of . this coun
try. With ambitious Japan not far away
and with China having under contempla
tion a new form of government largely
ministerial In character, the Philippine
problem requires a trained mind for It
solution; and it la frankly believed that
Judge Magoon la the person best fitted
to solve the questions of governmental
conduct presented y the Filipinos. Next
summer the Philippine general assembly
will come Into existence. . Thl Is the
first step -in the direction of horn rule In
the Island and President Roosevelt Is
anxious, that no blunder shall be com
mitted. ...The lower house of the general
assembly will be composed of native
elected by popular vote, while the member
of the Philippine commission practically
will constitute the upper branch, or senate,
'with the reform that ar to be Inaugu
rated, -carrying .with them more or less
of change from the present methods, the
president wishes a strong man who ha
proved his executive ability where he can
Institute these reforms without turning
the conditions In the Islands topsy turvy.
Owing to his Investigation of the Philip
pine question while attached to the War
department. Judge Magoon Is believed to
be especially qualified to carry out the
policies which the president desires, and
having the confidence of both Secretaries
Root and Taft, Charles E. Magoon goes
to the Philippine on his herculean task.
Intervention a duration of Time.
While It is hoped In Waahlngton tbnt
the Insurrectionary movement in Cuba
may be peaceably adjusted In the near
future, officials believe that the purchase
of peace at this time Is exceedingly costly
to the Palma government and It Is only a
question of time when the United States
will have to Intervene under the Piatt
There is no denying the fact that the
present government In Cuba is unsatisfac
tory to a large proportion of the popula
tion. The laat election and the manner In
which It was conducted and the results
announced have given umbrage to many
natlvea, and in consequence peace will not
be assured until another electlorf Is held.
As a matter ottact there are In Wash
ington today several men representing par
ticular Intereats In Cuba who Insist that
If peace Is made with the Insurgents, as
now seem assured. It will be but a short
time before another uprising against the
dominant power occurs, and this will have
to be put down with Ilk measures. The
people In the Isle of Pines, many of whom
went from the United States, are a unit
In antagonising th Palma administration
and It Is expected a powerful lobby will
be in Washington next winter to defeat
the Isle of Pines treaty, now pending in the
senate, which glvea that fertile Island to
Cuba entirely.

New York Journul, but of late years In

EL PASO. Tex., Sept. 9. A special to
the Hers Id from a staff correspondent sent
to Douglas. Arts., to meet General Louis
Torres, commander of the Mexican military
sone. embracing the states of Sonor. 81n-
nloa and lower California, declares the
general calls all the sensational revolu
tionary talk "nonsense," and says:
"The men under arrest have no money,
have no Influence and are simply wretched
rascals who have fled from Mexico to
escape their "crimes.
"In all the letters captured . there are.
pleas for money, showing that they have
no flnsnces and that they are a class of
men who can never do anything serious.
"There Is a feeling of unrest, I admit.
In northwestern Mexico, Just ss there Is a
feeling similar In the southwestern United
States, and nobody knowa the cause. Per
haps there Is some big corporation behind
it all, but' thus far the so-called revolu
tionists have no money and the Mexican
government Is giving Irself no concern, ex
cept to take such precautions as the United
Statea or sny other country would."
There will be no serious trouble. General
Torres believes and the arrest of these
men In Arlsona will end the matter en
tirely. He speaks warmly of his gratitude
as t well as thst of all Mexico for the
prompt steps taken by the United State
officials. It 1 believed, wires the Herald
correspondent, that the trial of the alleged
revolutionists at Douglas was postponed,
pending the arxest of other members of the
Junta at 8t. Louis. The trial has been put
off until September 18.

WASHINGTON. Sept. 9.-Th republican .
party. Its schlevements for hslf a oentury
and particularly Its record In the present
congress, Is commended to .the voter of
the country In the campaign, text book
given- out today by the republican con
gressional commltte. The book contain
278 pages and Is replete with republics n
doctrine, embracing practically every con
ceivable subject upon which Information
may be desired. Radicalism or conserva
tism. It is declared, are never matters of
concern to republicans, but It 1 ststed
"they are content with practical and pro
gressive Ideas and the maturing of those
Ides Into positive performance." Every
statement made snd all figures presented -are
declared In the foreword of the book
to be official and authoritative, and th
foreword conclude:
"The truth la the highest exemplification
of republican doctrines and policies and
party record. 1s the bet plea that can be
made for continuation In power."
In discussing the campaign Issue of
190ft, the book callsattentlnn to the fact
that since the termlnstlon of the Fifty
third congress in 1899, the house of repre
sentatives has been republican and adds
that "there ia every reason to expect that
a aubstantlal working republican majority
will be elected next November." During
thoss ten years It la. stated "we have made
a greater advance aa a nation and a people
than was ever made before In a generation
and In many respects greater than during
our whole previous history. There canno
then be the least doubt of republican suc
cess If the voters study carefully the rec
ord of the two psrtles.
Warning to First Voter.
"There will be thousands and hundreds
of thousand," the book says, "who will
vota for the first time. In November, who
were mere children when the democrat ,
last had a majority In the house of repre
sentatives and they do not all vividly re
member the awful time brought 'on tha
eountry by that congress. They were not
born when the only democratic, president
since the civil war waa first elected. They
were babies hi arms when Grover Cleveland
sent hi famous free trade message to
congress and when a year after the Inl-'
qultous Mills' bill was framed and passed
by th democratic house of representative
of the Fiftieth congress. But fortunately J
there was a republican senate to prevent
the enactment of the free trade law and
disaster, and calamity was for the time
averted. But In 1898 the democrats had the
presidency as well as both senate and
house of representatives and th work of
that single Fifty-third congress cost, th
Industries and people of th country many
billions of dollar and incalcuabls suffer
ing. These facts should be weighed with
the record of the republican party before
and since and especially should the record
of the present congress be studied, for
though its work Is not yet finished, more
ha already been done In one session thsn
by any previous congress since the war ol
the rebellion."
Only democratic success, it Is declared,
can prevent the giving to the people ol
the country new records in every phase ol
our Industrial life.
Doe to Republican Measures.
The book then continues:
"Republicans have a right to claim that
our flnanclUl, commercial and industrial
government Is due to th law enacted and
secured by their party leaders. The party
came Into power when the government and
the people were practically bankrupt and .
without credit. A disrupted union was re
stored, the vast expense of war provided,
specie payment . resumed, a protective '
tariff amended from time to time and the
development of the country continued un-
til the democratic check came In 1894.
"But," It Is stated, "the people were
quick to see their mlstske and at th first '
opportunity restored the republican party
to full power and no party change ha been
made since during a period of ten year."
The industrial situation 1 claimed to be
unaparalleled In the annate of nations.
"Our volume of employment," th state
ment continue, "our reward of labor, our
enjoyment of life were never befor
equaled, and, beat of all, there 1 no sign
of abatement or signal of retraat. There
is prospect of still greater and grander
result and only the rankest pessimist can '
see a cloud on our national material hor
laon." . Because of the various Ananclal and
tariff measures of tke republican " party,,
which the book aay a, have brought about
competition In manufacturers, It Is de
clared that a home market has been built
up In this country, of such mngnltude that
for several years we have given full em
ployment at wegea about double those paid
when the republican party eame Into power.
In some cases these wages sr treble and
quadruple what they were In 1800."
