Debate aerretary Taft la
HAVANA, Sept. The govt1; nment
party tonight abandoned its baste conten
tion that it la Impossible to treat for
peace with armed rebels, and proposed to
negotiate directly with a committee of lt
opponent. It la agreed to leave all points
upon which understanding la, not reached
to tha Anal arbitration of Secretary Taft
and Bacon. The government Itrst sug
gested that it would treat with the llo
erala if they would lay down their arms,
but the American commissioners ruled
that this stipulation was unfair and the
moderate representatives accepted this
view. ; While this phase of the contro
versy was wholly unexpected, Scret-
Taft waa greatly pleased therewith , Ntuated by a spirit or revenge for the re
made the' following statement for ', arrests of Finnish refugee In Stock-
"My Impression is that we an? mi'ev
nearer a aointlnn nf the trouhle lonlarlit t
than we were lust nlaht." i i
It was announced also that the nego
tiations to be opened between the com-I
mlttees representing the opposing parties
would be without reference to the- terms
previously proposed. The time and place
for the first meeting is to be determined
by Secretary Taft tomorrow.
Iltintatnm from 1'nlted States.
It ta beyond question that both parties
were brought to a more tractable frame
of mind by the verbal ultimatum Issued
by Taft and Bacon today In the name of
President Roosevelt, that unless they con
sent, to a fair arbitration the United
(States must compel the same by a tem
porary military occupation. Such an oc
cupation, It was declared, would not mean
American sovereignty.. Io would continue
only until new elections had been held,
the new government firmly 1 established
and order restored.'
Within an hour of the receipt of thia
ultimatum the moderate assembly agreed,
at the end of a stormy session, to a sug
gestion of treating with the liberals, the
conservative moderates threatened the
disruption of the party unless the radicals
consented to treat ..with the American
commission and this also is believed to
have had an Important bearing upon the
moderate ceoision. .-
It la understood tonight, jjiaf President
Jfaftn ddes not , Intend to' withdraw his
resignation, but It is predicted that congress
Will table it Indefinitely. .The decree con
vening congress on Friday for the purpose
of acting upon the resignations of the presi
dent, vice president and other was Issued
today, "-...''.' ' .
B tor my. Session of Moderates.
( A meeting of the Moderate National as
sembly waa hastily called this afternoon
to . discuss the pressing question whether
aomo way could not yet be devised to settle
the present difficulty without the threatened
American intervention. The meeting was
held at the residence of Senor Dots, presi
dent of the senatf. More than sixty per
sons were present. They Included Vice
President Mendes Capote, nearly all the
member of the cabinet and almost all the
leading senator and representatives. No
sooner had the meeting artoembled than the
pent-up Indlgutlon again the American
peace commissioner broke forth. Several
men began tn loud voices and at the -samo
time to- condemn Secretary Taft and Act
ing Secretary of State Bacon, who were
declared to have shown partiality In back
ing the rebels and discrimination against
the moderate side of the controversy. The
speaker shouted denunciations against the
American government and hotly instated
tf; it -the moderate party should appeal tot
the powers of the world for protection
against the usurpation of the sovereignty
of Cuba by the United States. -
It was declared that, the
forces should fight to the death rather than
submit to tho terms Inflated upon by the
rebels imd one speaker depicted tb horrors
of negro domination which , would result
he said, from the threatened liberal ascend
ancy brought about with-the alleged assist
ance nf the United States. . Some of the
moot radical present asserted that the
government had plenty of dynamite In
Havana, which would be used to precipitate
those International complications that ac
crue from the destruction of foreign prop
erty. Several prominent men said that by
using dynamite they could bring about
Intervention by Germany," or perhaps by
Great Britain, while other rashly declared
that they knew that the foreign diplomat
here would favor such course and It was
urged that the destruction of the German
bank and the damaging of English railroad
property would avion result In European
Intervention. Certain American properties
were sprclflrally mentioned aa convenient
for such attacks. Several speaker said
they would prefer1 Germany or Great Brit
ain In Cuba than the United States.
Bfontalvo Sent to 'mft.
This talk subsided after an hour and a
half, and the meeting then aettled down to
tbe question whether it was not possible
to reopen the negotiation with the peace
immlssloners. The One mint timn whh'h
the meeting was unanimous was that the j
arcinal nonunion or tne reopening or n
gotlallons wa that the moderates should! " 1 - '

. PARIS, Sept. 2. American securities
were for the first time, today listed on
the Paris bourse. With the final approval
of the governing committee of the stock
exchange -of France, . the Pennsylvania
railroad's recent 150,000,000 bonds became
the subject of quotation when the markt-t
opened at noon, both for cash and the ac
count regarding the . fully -paid up bonds
and for cash only regarding the scrip.'
The advent of the Pennsylvania on the
Paris Bourse' la regarded' as being an en
tering wedge for other American securi
ties In which the prolific French earn
ings may be invested. The moment is
considered . to be well chosen, because of
the growing popular . hesitation to invest
further tn Russian securities.
Two other American railroads, it is un
derstood, are already arranging to follow
Pennsylvania's example. .

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 3C.-The Minne

mysterious hotel murder, which promises
to develop as many sensations as did
that of Millie Ellison, who waa murdered
at the National hotel a few months ago.
This afternoon attendants at the Glen
wood hotel on Hennepin avenue broke Into
a room which had been occupied by a
i eouple, who registered on Tuesday as Fred
j Tyler and wife, and found on the bed the
body of a young woman. Death was caused
by a bullet which had been fired Into the
top of her head. ' It is said that tbe man
who accompanied her was seen leaving
the hotel early today, but no one can give
an accurate description of htm.
The woman apparently was of the better
class, ber clothing being of elegant ma
terial. Nothing was found to positively
establish her Identity. It being the police
theory that the eouple registered under
assumed names. A possible motive for the
crime was developed by the autopsy, which
disclosed the woman waa enclente.

SARATOGA. N. Y.. Sept. 2.-Expedltlon
marked the second and final day of the
republican state convention. From early
this morning, when It became known that
Charles E. Hughes of New York would
be nominated for governor by acclamation,
the other proceedings practically became
formal and were pushed to completion wtth
the utmost speed. The selection of the
remainder' of the ticket and the choice of
a new state chairman were ' accomplished
before the convention assembled, and it
only remained for the convention to ratify
all that had been arranged and to adjourn.
The session of the convention lastad about
two hours and In that time the permanent
organisation wa effected, the chairman,
State Senator W. W. Armstrong of Roches
ter, dellveied Ills' speech, the credentials
committee reported and its report was
agreed" to, the -platform wa ' read and
adopted and a complete state ticket nomi
nated. The speech of the permanent chalrrvin
waa largely a review of the state con
dition. General Stewart L. Woodford,
former United State minister df Spain,
reported from the committee on resolu
tions, of which her waa chairman. He
read the platform, which empnaalsed the
cardinal feature of republicanism and
the features of Its party administrations
both state and national. Mention of Presi
dent Roosevelt In the resolutions and in
speeches evoked applause. Brevity, was
an appreciated feature of the nominating
speeches, while the principal speech, in
which Job Hedges bf .New York, placed
Charles E. Hughes in nomination " for
governor was the most interesting event
of the proceedings. ' '
Parsons Nominates Brnce.-
Representative Herbert Parsons made
the speech proposing the renomlnation of
Lieutenant Governor M. Linn Bruce, the
man he had kept from the head of the
ticket and whom he -praised highly.
Events leading up to the nominations today-
were interesting and Involved innum
erable conferences throughout the night.
When the opposition to Hughes found
H ' impossible, or at least Inadvisable to
nominate Bruce for governor, and began
seeking elsewhere for a candidate, defeat
for the old-time leaders and victory for
the new and almost unknown leaders
followed almost immediately and awtftly,
The understood preference of President
Roosevelt for Hughes and the declaration
of Governor Hlgglns . that ha ' was not
opposing that preferred candidate' contrib
uted matorJaUy to tbe result, bat all this
woukt- hava seen ' wnavaUlng had OIL- 4
been for ..the decided . stand, which air.
Parsons maintained from the time he ar
rived . In Karl toga Sintll the. opposition to
hi candjdacy crumbled to dust.
. Temporary Chairman Driacoll called the
republican atate convention to order to
day a little after the appointed time. State
Senator W. ,W, Armatrong of Rochester
waa unanimously elected permanent
chairman, and on , assuming the gavel
poke at considerable length on the ie
spectlve records of , the democratic and
republican parties in the administration
of state and national affairs. The com
mittee on resolutions then made its re
port, which was adopted without dissent.
The platform begins as follows:
Assembled as delegates to the repub
lican state convention, we, gladly record
our pride and confidence . In President
Roosevelt. ' We endorse what he has done
in fulfilling tbe will of tbe people, in pro
tecting both labor and capital, in prevent
ing unfair discrimination In railway rates,
in reforming the abuse of trust corpora
tions; In providing for the speedy con
struction of the Panama canal) tn secur
ing pure food laws and uniform naturali
