' WASHINGTON. 1. C. Oct. 2.-( Special.)
At no cabinet meeting within ao short
a time have ao many subjecta been dis
cunaed aa engaged the attention of Presi
dent Taft and hla ministry at their series
of house partlea commenced Monday. All
were there except Secretary of War Dlek
inaon, who la yet in the far east, and will
probably not return to Washington until
Largely engaging the attention of the
president and hla nearest counselors has
been the effort authorized by law to re
trench expenditures along the suggestion
made by Senator Aldrlch that aome hun
dreda of million of dollars might be saved
the government. The beginning of this re
form was Uie appropriation of $100,000 to
start an Investigation of the business
methods of the departmenta with a view
to cut down expenditures. A New York
business man, Frederick A. Cleveland, who
has had much experience with large busl
neaa and municipal corporation In work of
thia kind haa been appointed by the presi
dent to superintend the adventure.
Also of considerable Importance to the
country at large, two subjects lm dlately
concerning the Postofflce department were
seriously considered. They were Postal
Havings bank system and the advlsabllltj
of putting the third and fourth class post'
mantels In the classified Civil service.
The president and Ms business-like com
patriots also discussed the situation wltb
reference to the United States supreme
court, and all had a good word to say for
Governor Charles E. Hughes of New York
aa fit for chief justice in place of the late
Melville W. Fuller.
If appointed, the New York lawyer will
be the ninth ohlof justice of the supreme
court since its organisation.
Three were appointed by President Wash.
Inglon John. Jay of New .York. John Rut
ledge' of South Carolina and Oliver Ells
worth of Connecticut. None of these held
office after Washington's second term ex
pired and their tenure of office was com
paratively brief.
John Marshall of Virginia, appointed by
President John Adama, came along for the
longest time any chief justice haa ao far
been able to aerve thirty-four yeara. His
predecessors had resigned from the bench.
Jay served but six years, Kutledge but one
alttlng of the court, hla nomination having
been rejected by the senate, and Ellsworth
but four yeara. Roger B. Taney of Mary
land, like Marshall, had a long aervlce in
the exalted office twenty-eight years. The
other ohlef Justices had terms aa follows:
Salmon P. Chase of Ohio, nine yeara;
Morrison R. Walte of Ohio, fourteen years,
and Melville W. Fuller of Illinois, twenty
two yeara.

Reports of another uprising in China, to
guard against which It Is reported tnat
the American army In the Phllllpplne
islands is being hastily prepared, are de
clared by Prince Suln, uncle of the em

unduly alarming and that If any uprising
occurred It would be found to be of a
purely local character.
Prince Buln, who is staying at the Plaza,
aald he had been much gratified by the
courtesy which he had met on all sides
in thia country and that his first visit

It is posslblu that the international auto
mobile race scheduled for October 15 will
be called off aa a result of the casualties
at the .mderbllt cup races. If the Auto
mobile Ciub of America does not act, the
authorities may withdraw permission for
the race to be held.
While no definite action In the matter
has been taken, the race enthusiasts who
gathered at the Garden City hotel after the
cup race were doubtful of the probability
of any grand prize race. The many injuries
and deaths around the circuit, it was said,
might cause the board of governors of the
Automobile Club of America to withdraw
their sanction of the races scheduled for
October 15, even if the Motor Cups Holding
company, wished to conduct the contest
according to arrangements. As the Auto
mobile Club of America is court of last
resort on International automobile affairs
in this country, the grand prize race could
not be un if the sanction were withdrawn
A. L. McMurtries, chairman of the techni
cal committee of the Automobile Club of
America and one of the last to leave the
course, said tonight he had heard nothing
about the abandonment of the grand prize
race. It Is the duty of Mr. McMurtries'
committee to examine the cars before they
enter the race, and he said that he had re

Not knowing of the disaster that had
overtaken her husband, Harold Stone, driver

the Vanderbllt cup race, Mrs. Stone, a
bride of only a few weeks, sat In the grand
stand and eagerly watched for her husband
to complete the circuit. Cheers and shouts
ascended as the speeding cars flashed by
and each one Mrs. Stone scanned eagerly,
trying to catch a glimpse of the one whom
above all else she hoped to see drive his
car to victory arid carry off the prize be-
fore the day closed. He did not come. j
Then Bhe began to make Inquiries and was
told that an accident had happened to his j
car, but she was not told of the nature of I
the accident until after the race was over.

the big ditch will be dug with money

NEW YORK, Oct. 2. (Special Telegram.)
-Leaders of both the (Trent parties In New
York are plnnning f.r what promises to
ho the most spectacular campaign seen In
the Empire tate since the days of David
B. Hill and drover Cleveland.
Oyster Hay Is th center of republican
activity and nftor the return from Roches
ter the democratic leaders probably wlll
make New York the campaign headquar
ters. Two factors In the campaign which are
Important and uncettaln are these: Will
the "Old Guard" forget the wenrlng out It
got at Saratoga, fall In line behind Stim
son and Cole, and work loyally for tha
ticket? Will Hearst endorso either of the
tickets and which, or will he run an inde
pendent ticket?
Upon the answer of these two questions
the result of tlwi campaign depends.
In republican circles It la asserted with
apparent confidence that the "Old Guard"
will work loyally for the success of the
party. It Is the best opinion among unpre
judiced observers that while Barnes, Wood

not bolt. In fact, most of them have said
so, that they will not kill many snakes
In an effort to fix the hold of Colonel
Roosevelt on the party machinery.
As to the course of the Independence
league and Mr. Hearst, the Impression
seems to be that they either wlll Indorse
Stimson or name a ticket of their own.
Democratic Candidate DIx bolted the
nomination of Hearst In D06 and said some
pretty hard thing" about the candidates
when he did It. Hence, It Is not thought
possible the Independence league leader
