WASHINGTON, Oct. 7.-Speclal.) Two
great camps are In process of forrnation

camp, represented by the president and
his political advlrors, la In favor of giving
the Cubans another trial to govern them
selves. The other camp la persistent In

potary. pending an agreement amongst the
several poiitlrnl ructions in luDa to get
together on some common basis. President
Roosevelt has maintained his position that
intervention did not mean annexation; that

contending Interests In the Isliind.

Panama occupies much the same, relation
to the I'nited States ai Cuba. It has. how
ever, this one advantage over Cuba, that
there are ti.ono Americans employed on the
Panama canal and living in the canal sone,
which politicians regard as a decided help
toward steidylng the Panama republic.
While It Is true Governor Magoon was
sent as a special commissioner to supervise
the election in Panama, his report con
firms the p'optsltlon that the Panamaan
Is beginning to realise the difference be
tween Latin politics and those of the United
States and he Is striving with all his power
to reach a higher standard of government
than Is usually associated with Latin Amer
ican countries. -
From a thoroughly reliable source It Is
learned that immediately after the crisis
was reached In Cuba the president had In
mind Governor Charles E. Magoon as pro
visional governor of the island to succeed
Secretary Taft, whose presence in Washr
Ington is greatly needed. In this the presi
dent had, the worm and. earnest support. of
Secretary Root, "who.' while""- steadfast
friend of Governor Magoon, recognised In
the Nebraakan the essential - qualities
needed in bringing the Cuban people to a
more "perfect understanding of the Ameri
can, -both officially and socially. Governor
Magoon came from Panama with the un
derstanding that he was destined to the
Philippines as vice governor of those isl
ands Rumor, however, had preceded the
arrival of Governor Magoon in Washington
that he was to be thrown Into the Cuban
breach, there to remain aa provisional gov
ernor until another election for president
could be had. But when Governor Magoon
had his first talk wfth the president In con
Junction with Secretary Root, the chief ex
ecutive and hla secretary of state agreed
that Secretary Taft had gone too far tn hla
promises to mske Beekman Wlnthrop. the
present governor of Porto Rico, provisional
governor of Cuba, and that the program
as originally made up for Governor Ma
goon should go' on.
President's First Wish Prevails.
During Wednesday, however, there was
considerable cable communication between
the White House and the palace In Havana
over the succeesorship to Secretary Taft,
who. after ascertaining what the impres
sions of the president and Secretary Root
were agreed that Governor Magoon was
the right man for the place and that Gov
ernor Wlnthrop, who has made a splendid
record ln Porto Rico, could well afford to
be continued In the position which he now
In this connection it may be farther
said that there wan no "backing and till
ing" on the part of President Roosevelt, as
some of the newspapers have Indicated,
so fur as Governor Magoon's selection for
the Cuban mission is concerned. The idea
originated with President Roosevelt to
send Magoon to Cuba and when It was
learned that Secretary Taft had gone so
tar as to name his successor ln the. per
son of Beekman inthrop, wnne it was
acqulesed In by' both the president and
Secretary Root, Washington felt that Ma
goon was muuh more peculiarly equipped
for the position thsn the distinguished

selection Is the outgrowth of a conference
between President ' Roosevelt and Secre
tary Root, who urged the change upon
Secretary Taft In view of Magoon's
achievements In Panama. In other words.

Naval Hoard Preaerlnen

WASHINGTON. Oct. 7 A provision lu
1 the naval appropriation bill rracted at the
last session ot congress, authorised the
secretary of the navy "to contract for or
purchr.se subsurface or submarine torpedo
boats to an amount not exceeding ILCXi.C).
after such tests as he shall see tit to pre
scribe." To prescribe and supervise the
tests S-crctar v ItonaDaite appointed a
board consisting of Captain Adolph Marlx,
Jr., Naval Constructor W. T. Taylor, Com- !
manders C. W. Dyson and Cleland Davis
snd Lieutenant John W. Tlinmlns. with
Ensign Frank IT Sadler as recorder.
The hoard has agreed upon the nattire
of the tests and the time and place, which
are required to be within nine months from
the date nf the pasrag- of the law.
The boats must be -i ady for trial on
February IK, 197. at Xarragansett bay,
where the test are to be made; and the
trials must be completed by Msrch 2. 1907.
The tests are to be comparative. In the
opinion of the board, It Is not practicable
to have simultaneous competitive tests.
The trials will be over a measured course,
under various conditions, that Is. ln the
"light" condition with all ballast tanks
empty, in the "awash" condition with the
vessels showing not more than half of the
conning towers, and In the submerged
condition with the connirtc tower not lss
than ten feet below the silrrace. The boats
will be put through all sora of maneuvers,
the time and the nature of the perform
ance of each being noted by the board.
The vessel's behavior In oeawsy slso will
be determined. In a submerged, run each
vessel will discharge all of Us torpedoes at
a suitable target, observations on the target
being made without coming to the surface.
Designs for mining, countermining, cable
cutting and handling torpedoes will be
tested; the strength, material and work
manship of each vessel will be examined;
Its habitablllty will be .determined by a
twenty-four hour submerge, and after the
trial all machinery -will he dismantled for
examination by the board.
It Is required that every boat to be
tested shall be submitted to the board com

ALCOHOL FOR USE IN ARTS I

EXPECTED TO BE ut IMMENSE VALUE
Commissioner Irrkra Spenks nf
Objects of Congress Legislation
Along Same Lines In Prac
tically All t onntrles.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 7. Mr. t Yerkes,
commissioner of Internal revnue, with the
approval of the secretary of the treasury,
today issued tfie departmental regulations
controlling the making of denatured alco
hol, the handling of the same, and its uses.
These regulations follow and render effec
tive a law enacted by congress ss Its last
session, snd which provides for the with
drawal from bond, tax free, of domestic
alcohol when the same is rendered unfit
for beverage or liquid medicinal uses by
the admixture of suitable denaturing ma
terials, and for the us" of the denatured
article In the arts, and Industries and for
fuel, light and power.
This legislation Is In harmony with slml.
lar enactments adopted by nearly nil foreign
countries. Great Britain In legislated
on this subject along the same lines of our
own law. and France, Germany. Austria
and virtually all the continental powers
now furnish their subjects alcohol free of
tax for the usese above mentioned.
In discussing the nw regulations today,
Mr. Yerkes said: '
"The prime object to be attained by this '
type of leginlatlon Is to furnish, for purely
domestlp uses, and also for what might be
called Industrial domestic purposes, heat,
light and power, cheap alcohol with the
hope thereby that there will be a reduction
Mtf expenses In these departments.
"This denatured alcohol will be a com
petitor with IllumlnatinsXoll, gasollno and
Objects of the Law.
"It will slso furnish to manufacturers
who use alcohol In the products of the
factories, alcohol free from the heavy in
ternal revenue tsx now levied on the
same. This tax amounts to about per
wine gallon on alcohol, at 10 degrees proof.
It Is believed great benefit will be derived
by the people by this legislation, and this
certainly was In the mind of congress, for
few public measures received such hearty
and unanimous support as did this.
"In preparing the regulation It was ts
sentlal to adopt rules that would prohibit
as far as possible- perpetration of any
and all frauds against the revenue of the
government by the reclamation and re
publication of denatured alcohol through
redistillation or other processes through tlte
removal of the denatured Ingredients
added and the restoration of the alcohol
to Its original condition for beverage and
To- secure these ends It will be neces
sary to use articles for denaturing pur
poses and also use such Ingredients as
are the most difficult to separate from
pure alcohol by' chemical or other pro-
"In determining on the denaturing agenU
to be used, the cost of the same is of great
moment, for to render this new legislation
of practical us ;and benefit ICia naeeasary
for the denatured product to pass Into the
hands of tha consumer at aa low a price
as can Ae secured.
Two Classea of Prod act.
"Uhder the regulations now issued, alco
hol of 180 degrees proof Is freed from the
tax of SUM per wine gallon after being
denatured by the use of either some gen
eral denaturing material or some specific
material adapted especially to the uses of
certain manufacturing Interests. There
will, therefore, be two classes of denatured
alcohol; first, that styled 'completely de
natured.' which will pass Into general use
for general consumption, can be purchased
at stores without limiting regulations as
against the private consumer; and, sec
ond, specially denatured,' in which the
matetial demanded by the needs of manu
facturing Interests will be regarded, and
with limitations as to the use of this class,

Issued by the government to the soldiers.
The practice of selling clothing Issued to
enlisted men. the report says, continues to
exist'. In spit., of all efforts looking to Its
suppression. The clothing so disposed of
amounts to a tnnslilerable sum to the

both these who sell the clothing and those
who huy It have bten prosecuted vigor

where soldiers are convicted of selling
clothing Issued to them by the government
they be dealt with as severely as are those
who are convicted of buying It.

Besnlt of Anlopsy.
Dr. W. R. Lavender performed a post
mortem examination Sunday evening. The
examination showed that Miss Rummelhart
received tw blows on the head and a cut
on the throat, either of which would have
proved fatal. The blowa on the head were
on the right side over ear and left side
over eye. The latter blow, which was over
the frontal bone, caused a severe fracture
of the skull, one of the worst Coroner Bral
ley ever witnessed at un autopsy. The cut
on the throat severed the windpipe and
was caused by a rasor, T'r. Lavender be
lieved, although that wound indicated thu
use ot a sharp Instrument causing a stub
wound. The doctor also found evidences
of a crlmiuul assault.
