hy Governor i
Taft today um a sort of valedictory address
to the revolutionist committee which the
American commissioners dealt with In Ret
tln tho rebels to reams hostilities and ne
Yutla.1 peace. The cf.mmittee had a con
ference lastlnK fin hour with Governor
Taft. ASHisiant Secretary of State Bacon
tfi.fl C'burles V.. Maitooii, who Ir to succeed
Mr. Thft as provisional srovernnr, and at
Its conclusion expressed satisfaction with
th" pf.sltlon taken by the provisional gov
ernment. Headed by Alfredo Zayus. the committee
visited Governor Taft for the avowed pur
posc of requestlnsT him to declare the jmllcy
of tha L'nited States toward Cuba and the
policy of the provisional governor concern- j
In- appointment to office. j
Taft Heplles to Committee. !
The Americans listened carefully to all
of the committee and then Governor Taft
replied pointedly that he could not outline
the policy of the L'nlted States more
clearly than wua done in his proclamation
establishing a provisional government for
the Island. He added that aa the represen
tative of the United Slates he was Just as
anxious to surrender governmental affair
to Cubans as the Cubans were to regain
them, but the peace eommlelsoners were
under the responsibility- to- build up condi
tions which would make the Cuban gov
ernment a stable one.
Governor Taft would not predict when
such a satlafactory condition would be
reached, but he said the Cubans themselves
could hasten thnt time if they were dli
- posed to do ao. A fair and honest election
on the results of which the Cuban people
were willing to abide; Governor Taft, de-
chrrea, was not necessary oerore tno to Join the colors, but they nope to aug
Vnlted States -would feel Justified In with- ment the disorders In the Interior and seni)
drawing from the island.
Scnor Zayas, Carlos Garcia and' Jose' Mig
uel Gomel hastened to assure Governor
Taft that It waa not their personal am
bition to obtain public office. They de
clared, however, that the Interests of their
party demanded that' the government
should not be continued In the form against
which they -had revohfd.' Assurances were
given the committee-by -Mr.-Taft-that Mr.
Magnon would- eonslder complaints against
any official; Investigate them and remove
persons found unfit to hold positions of
responsibility or trust, but that capable men
with good records would be retained. The j
committee Informed Governor Taft that It
Intended to d'" 1 once. j
Thanks erlcaa llesldents. j
This eve -committee representing
many Amf An Culm prmented Messrs.
Taft and with an nd Iress expressing
appreciate ,or the' great services they had
done for all residents of the island. The
address said:
The results ou have accomplished arc
greater than could reasonably have been
hoped for. Nearly thirty thousand armed
men. moved by Intense liltl.-r passions,
.were arrayed ga..nst the government and
a conflict whs Imminent In which enormous
loss'of life and properly seemed Inevitable.
It scarcely seemed possible that pace
could be brought out of such elements nf
discord ami strife without bringing Into
active service the military power at your
command, but within less than a month
your wise and sagacious mt-thoda and the
adroitness with which you have h.ndled
your dlfneult task brought peace mid quiet
l) Cuba. '
Nut the least satisfactory of the present
considerations Is the fact that in I he set
tlemtnt of the turbulent conditions yon
have caused little Irritation or resentment
and have secured from Cubans Increased
respect and regard for the l ulled Slatts
anil greater confidence and trust in the
good will and Intentions of the American
people for the welfare of Cuba.
VVe do not believe so speedy or success
ful an achievem. tit under conditions so dif
ficult and dangerous has any parallel. The
thanks and gratitude of the Cubans and
the great people you represent are due you
for these Inestimable services.
Responding to this address, Governor
Taft expressed his sincere thanks. He said
the testimony of Americana and others who
were on the ground had been of great as
sistance at the outset of the peace commis
sioner' work. The commissioners early
felt the tremendous pressure of the respon
sibility of being the agents to bring about
a right solution of the vexed conditions.

democrats have assumed the direction of
th? organized movement for the refusal to
ptrform military service, which the con

At a largely attended meeting of the cen
tral committee of the social democrats at
St. Petersburg yesterday It was decided to
begin the work Immediately among the
conscripts of lSmi, who todity were notified
to appear for erirollmert and endeavor to
Induce them to refuse to Join the colors.
Tho' press of the revolutionists Is printing
thousands of the so-called democratic proc- ,
Lunations and on organized effort will be j
made; to reach every mun on this year s j
lists of conscripts. The organlicrs of the ;
movement have little expectation of ac
tually preventing the enlistment of recruits
and are nware that the conscripts have no
adequate means to back up their refusal

Andrew's university today, the principal.
Dr. James Donaldson, showed himself to
be an ardent supporter of spelling reform.
Dr. Donaldson said that he cordially fa

Illiterates could learn through a phonetic
alphabet In a quarter or a third of the
time required under the present system
and us millions of children were learning
to read phonrtle spelling It would save

since the announcement of the failure. Juan
M. Celmllos. senior member of the llrm of

garding Silverla and the failure.
Of Silverla he said: "All he was In the
world I made lilm. I trusted him and he
betrayed my confidence."
Mr. Ceballos denied the stories circu
lated that this firm had bought warrants
for claims In the last Cuban war for from
6 to 10 cents on the dollar. He said that
all he had purchased from Silverla he bad
paid So. fa ur.d ?." cents on the dollar Cor.

verla was In Venezuela or on hl way to j
that country. 1

The first intimation of the trouble wnirn
led to an Investigation and the conse

came through a letter which Silverla wrote

China, nnd Japan Are Bnylnst Less

WASHINGTON, Oct.' 12.-A marked
characteristic of tho export trade of the
l'nlted States In recent months Is a re
duction In the value of exports to China
and Japan. The total value of the mer
chandise exported to China In the eight
months ending with August, imm. Is but

In the corresponding months of 1903.
The cause of this startling reduction in
China, the report gives as two abnormal
conditions of demand, namely: The Russo

The governn int direct vd its tuergics to
day Into an Inquiry com-.rnlng the regula
tion of freight rates n the Illinois coal
fUlua by the St. Louis Coal Traffic bureau.
The most Important testimony was given
by John Fitzgerald, manxger of the St.
Louis terminals of the Louisville Nash
ville, who admitted thnt the coal traffic
bureau ordered the rate cut from "6 cents
to 16 cents a ton In May. Ii5, and In Juno
of the same year ordcrrd the restoration
of the original rate. He testified that
rates were discussed at the meetings of the
hunuu, and ar.y changes made by the dif
ferent roads announced there.
V. C. Stlth, manager of the Iron Moun
tain and Missouri Pacific systems, Instilled
tnat the Iron Mountain road had given the
Big Muddy Coal company a rate of 35
cents from the CartervllU, 111., district to
St. Louis, and that It had been met by the
lllluo's Central.
F.arller In the healing William K. Burr
of tho Cartcrvlllc Coal company, testliied
that the Iron Mountain made a rate to the
Big Muddy company that nearly put him
out of business. When the knowledge of
this rate came to the attention of the otlirr
roads, he said, the Iron Mountain was
called before the coal traffic bureau and
lorced to restore the rate.

Cabinet Officers enable to Agree on
Regulation for Knforrinic
Pnre Food Lntv.
WASHINGTON, Oct. K.-Differences that
way prove serious have developed In re
spect to the adoption of the pure food
regulations. The commission, consisting of
Dr. W. II. Wiley of the Agricultural do-.;
pnrtment,- Drr 8. N.' U. -'-North of tire -Department
of Commerce and Labor and
James L. Gerry of the Treasury depart
ment, formulated the proposed regulations
under which the pure food and drug act
is to be administered.
They reached a unanimous conclusion re
cently, after many weeks of Investigation,
discussion and consideration. As finally
I agreed upon by the commission, the n gu-
I intions were In the nature of a compromise
on many points. The commission submitted
' the regulations to Secretaries Wilson, Shaw
and Metealf, by whom, before they become
effective, they have to lie approved. It Is
known that some nf the regulations do not
meet the entire approval of nil of the sec
retaries and it probably will be necessary
to modify them before a unanimous agree
ment is reached.
Under the regulations as they stand now
It would not be legal, for Instance, to
! 1"b,l ' brand of wln" manufactured m
this country as champagne, although It
might be as pure as any wlno ever manu
factured. No American-made chees" could
bear the nam Ncufchatel, although It Is
claimed by American makers that thut Is
a distinctive name of a cheese made In
many places of the world. American-made
champagne would be called American wine,
champagne type, or champagne blend. The
cheese might be called cheese, Neufchut!
Mr. Gerry went today to Marllrsbttrg,
W. Vu,.. whore he will meet Secretary Shaw
and submit the regulations to him. Th y
Ihve not been approved yet by either Sec
ttifuii oi nruiriHI Jtiei.'UJI, Ul-
tliough both of these officials hove exam
ined them. It Is not unlikely that the three
secretaries may have a meeting In the
near future to determine what uction they
will take.

was recoived from Albright that a bloody j nolle of Creek In-
slilrt had been found In a lumber yard at i .
that place. Oftleer Shepherd at once went d,"n Trlhe.
to Albright and brought the shirt back to i
the Omaha police station, where it was i MV8KOGEE. I. T., Oct. 12 W. T. Mur
dlscovcrcd to be the discarded garment j tin, Jr., a former employe of the Dawes
, of tin employe of a packing house.
I The man with the bloody clothes who
was seen on a South Omaha motor car
after the murder Saturday night and who
later appeared In a drug store of thai
city, now turns out to bo Harry llolsley,
a dope fiend. Tho blood upon his person
and clothing canre from a hemorrhago of
the nose. He Is now serving a thirty-day
sentence In the county Jail, having been
sent up Monday morning on a charge of
After His Cocaine.
Holsley went to the drug store and told
the drug clerk he was sick and Hnally tried
to buy some cocaine. This was refused him
and lia wan driven from the atore. The po
lice Investigated him thoroughly ami
h arned he could not possibly have had any
thing to do with the murder.
This leaves the police as much In the
dark as ever Insofar as the Identity of
the ' murderer Is concerned. The plain
clothes men are still covering the city and
are keeping a pharp lookout among the
large number of colored men employed at
the Virion Pacific cut-off. There are about
2,o00 people at work on this new road.
At the same time the impression is grow
ing among the officers that the mun who
committed the crime Is one who is familiar
with the neighborhood and probably he had
laid In wait for his victim for some time,
having carefully planned his work. This
Is the belief of Chief Donahue, and while
the outskirts are being watched carefully
and the suspicious- characters are being
rounded up. the Immediate neighborhood Is
not being overlooked. The chief figures the
brute must have known no dog was IlkelyJ
to bark at him in the alley Into which he
carried his victim. He must have carefully
selected Ills place and lie must have known
the tiublts of the persons who use the barn
nejr the scrtre of the crime. Furthermore
tho chief reasons, the man may have been
cIojs to his own place of abode and at dnce
changed his clothes and made away with
the bloody ones. Reasoning along these
lines the chief has a theory that It may
not have been Imported talent, but home
talent that committed the act.
Supply of Suspects.
The supply of suspects In the Rummel
hart murder case is gradually diminishing
and the pollne say they have absolutely no
good clue at present. It Is evident from
the prevulont gloom around police circles
J that the authorities are becoming much
dircour aged, us tho chances of making an
Important arresi ovcume more remote eacu

Atlanta, Ga., and Joseph Wilson, who were

The detectives are still busy running
dowu clues, however, but they say none
of the information which they now have
gives promise of Important developments.
Chief of Detectives Savage said he believed
almost every cltlacn of Omaha had seen a
suspicious acting negro some time since the
murder. It is the opinion of a number of
the officers that the murder was not com
mitted by a negro snd that the work along
that- line has all been for naught and a
pure waste of time.
Bloodhounds Are .Needed.
Friday morning Chief Donahue said:
"What we need Is a good pair of blood
hounds and I have hopes that we will be
able to obtain them soon. The salutary
effect of the ownership of the dogs would

CHICAGO. Oct. 12. The world cham
pionship base ball series Is again even, the
local National league team tislay defeating
the Atnerlcun leaguers, 1 to 0, Each shin
tins now won two gan es. Curiously enoutli
both National victories have been on the
American grounds, while the White Stock
ings have earned success on thelv rivals'
A It roek for the Americans and Frown for
the Nationals, the pitchers who opposed
each other In' the. opening game, which
was won by Altreitk's team, again con
tested for supremacy today. Brown was
nt his best. He showed nerve, apeed, con
trol and Intelligence In serving the hats
men the kind of curves they liked the
least. He gave only two passe and al
lowed only two bits. lie held the Amer
icans hit less until the sixth Inning, when,
with two out. Halm hit cleanly to center.
Jones, however, promptly ended the inning
by flying out to Sdinlte.
The Nationals looked dangerous as early
as the second Inning, when Stelnfeldt hit
to e-enter and reached third on the sacri
fice of Tinker and Evcrs' out. Kling. always
a formidable batsman, wo tip anil Altroek
delilierately attempted to pass him with
the hope that Brown, the next batter, would
go out easily after the fashion of most
pitchers. Kltug, however, reached for one
of tho wide ones and lifted a mighty fly
to right, field. Halm, however, rae-ed back
und saved the day. at least tempeirarlly. by
making a magnificent cutch while bending
back' over the wire cable used to hold
back the crowd. .
The Americans made the- only real bid
for the game when Rohe reached first on
Stelnfeldt's bad throw and reached third
on a micrltlce and an out. Brown, however,
showed his nerve by striking out Davis,
who was again back In the game at short.
Nationals Earn at Ran.
The Nationals earned the run which won
the game. Chance sent a single' to short
right field nnd reached third on sacrifices
by Stelnfeldt and Tinker. K-vers placed h
pretty single over third baau and Chance
in the ninth ' McFurland batted for Alt
rock and went out, Stelnfeldt to Chnnce.
Ilahn .flew out to Tinker. Then Jones
raised tho fluttering hopes of his support
ers by waiting for four balls and going In
second when a ball got past Kling and hit
the umpire. I'nder the rules Jones was
entitled to a base. A good hit would have
tied the" game st this point, and with the
massive Ishell at but the hopes of the
Americans were high. The big second base
man swung viciously nt a waist-high ball
and i-onnected squarely. It went dike u
cannon shot right ut Brown's face. Brown
had barely time to get his hands on the
ball and the forue of the blow laid hint
flat on his back. For a moment It looked
aa If he had been dusrd by the fall, but
he recovered nnd threw out the runner,
ending the game.
Brown had pitched a masterly game and
the usual crowd of enthusiasts swarmed
orrto tho field and fought for a chance to
put him on the back. He had fairly to
fight to get out of the grounds. Huffman,
who had made a magnificent running catch
In right center of Halm's long, low fly,
Evers, who had turned apparent hits Into
putouts and Captain Chance also came In
for their share of approbation.
The weather was by far the most nleas-
I ant of the series and, ulthough the ma
jority rf spectators wore heavy wraps, they
really were not needed. The ott-iidnno
reflected the Improved weather, the of
ficial count showing 18.3 paid admissions.
This was the last game In which tho play
ers share tho gate money. Total receipts
for the four games wero J61.K56. of which
70 per cent goes to the players. Of this sum
75 er cent will go to the team winning
the series and the remainder to the losers.
