CHICAGO, Oct. .-!ecretary of the
Navy Meyer, who t amo to Chicago to as
sist In the dedication of the new naval
training station here and to arrange for
the review of the great fleet of hattle
ehips and other vessels of war now as
sembled In New York ly President Taft,
left for the east tonight.
The mnln features of the review have
been ngreed uiwin and only the smaller
details remain to foe worked out by the
In other respect than mere number of
ships and power of armament, tl-p re
view promises to eclipse any naval
pageant ever r.ecn In this country. Presi
dent Taft nt only will rail through the
four lines of ships at anchor In the
Hudson river, but will watch the vast
armada pick up Its anchors and get under
way. He then will lead the long column
f fighting ships down the way and off
Staten Island will stand aside on the May
flower and again review the fleet us It
payees out to ten.
The presidential review will take place
n Thursday, November 1. Wednesday
the secretory of the navy will inspect
the fleet from his dispatch boat, the
Dolphin. In a sense this inspection
really will mark the beginning of the
pageant for Secretary Meyer will be
received with all the honors due his of
fice and the river will reverberate with
the roar of Fainting cannons.
President Taft will reach New York on
Thursday morning and will be In and
about the battleships all day long. He
will board the Mayflower at 9:0 a. tn.,
and will not leave the yacht until 1 p. m.,
when he will depart for Hot Springs, Vi.,
to roat three or four daya before filling
the supplementary engagements he
recently made In Cincinnati. Kentucky
.Mayflower Will Lead.
Tha Hayflosrari'.drrMcd' In- the gayest
.' ot bunting and fiying tbe president' fla.
Will roacb the hend ot the. four, battlaahjp
'tinea at 19 Vcioe.;. It' will anchor 'for a
brief time there to permit the commander-in-chief
of the fleet. Rear Admiral Hugo
Osterhaua, and possibly the division com
manders to go on board and pay ther
lespects to the commander-in-chief of the
army and navy. President Taft will re
turn Admiral Osterhaua' visit on board
the historic old flagship, the Connecticut.
When he is aealn m board the Mayflower
the yacht will get under way and steam
up the river through the water lane
formed by the fleet and second columns
of the anchored fleet. This lane la seven
miles long. After the last little torpedo
boat at the end of the column has paid
its tribute of twenty-one guns , to the
president, the Mayflower will turn and,
heading for the south, will "steam back
through tho third and foui-tli columns.
From the tlmo the Mayflower first hoves
In sight at the beginning of the review,
until the fleet has picked its way through
the narrows and 1b headed out pa.it Handy
Hook, the saluting will be almost continu
ous and New York harbor and the city
Itself, promises to be wrapped for hours
In the pungent white smoke poured from
the muszles of several hundred guns.
Spectacle Great One.
The spectacle of the vast fleet getting
under way in the narrow confines of New
York harbor will be one worth remem
bering, and undoubtedly will be witnessed
from shore arid shipboard by countless
thousands of people. President Roosevelt
In 1907, watched the Atlantic fleet get
under way for its trip around the world.
The picture then presented was one that
has lived long In naval annnls. But there
were only Bit teen chips In the line and
they had the broad bosom ot Hampton
roads to maneuver In, witii miles of green
water on every aide. When the big fleet
now assembled in the Hudson river begins
to move it will require wonderful skill
in navigation to get it straightened out

Union Pacific Gives
Report Upon Wreck
ROCK SrRIXUS, Wye., Oct. 23,-Hu-mnn
Infallibility caused the wrecking of
a I'nlnn Pacific passenger train that rsn
Into a freight train near here and re
sulted in death to three men and In
juries to thirty other persons, according
to an official report given out by tho
railroad company today. The statement
shows how a wreck can be brought
about by Interfering with automatic
safety blocking systems, ' which are said
to be otherwise mechanically infallible.
According to the official report, the
accident, which occurred yesterday, was
due to the action of Robert E. Le, head
hrakoman of a westbound freight train,
which had been sidetracked to allow the
westbound fast mall train to pass. Re
fore the mail train cume in sight from
the cast the castbound Atlantic Express
As this passenger train neared the
switch leading to the sidetrack, which
Ilea between the eastbound and the west
bound tracks, Uralceman l.ee, the state
ment says, "for some unaccountable rea
son stepped up to the switchsland and
threw the switch, causing the Atlantic
ex pros to run In on the passing track
and collide with the engine of Lee's own
The signals, before the BWlthcb was
thrown, showed both through tracks to
be clear and the switch ta the side track
closed.1 The express was too close to
the swftch to stop after the switch
turned and he collision followed.

of the freight train were severely scalded.
Both locomotives wore partly wrecked.
A mall car turned over to the north
of the tracks and an express car rolled
to the south, wedging a day coach be
tween them as It ground Its way Into
the wreckage of the locomotives.
The most serious injuries were kuk-
taincd by persons In the day coach. They
were scalded by steam from the broken
locomotive boilers. Several passengers In
the other seven cars of the express sus
tained bruises and cults from the Im
pact and broken glass. The most severely
hurt were taken In a relief train to
I-aramle find Cheyenne, while those
slightly Injured were cared for and sent

Many Instances Where Native Troops

niand Action on Part of
Peking is becoming worse. A verltabl
panic prevails among the Manchus and
the Manchu women are adopting Chinese
dress. Some of them are attempting to
make their feet appear small by peculi
arly constructed shoes. The trains that
are leaving the capital for the most part
are drawn by two engines, so heavily are
they loaded, the people sitting on top of
their household belongings. Officials are
seeking asylum for their wives and chil
dren among the foreigners.
Prior to the revolution the newspapers
frequently rrled out against the pres
ence of foreign soldiers but the natives
are now fleeing to them for shelter. One
report fixes tomorrow night for the out
break, but the presence of 18,000 Manchu
troops, against 3,000 Chinese, ensures
the safety of the capital for the pres
ent. The only danger seems to be from a
sudden attack against the throne or
against the officials, which might pre
clpltate the threatened massacre by the
Manchus. Race feeling Is becoming in
tensified. The price of provisions Is
still rising and many foreigners are en
tering the legation quarter. The legation
guards are preparing for emergencies.
The Americans have sand bags piled on
the corner wall, which la now tinder a
strong guard. Picturesque movements
of the Manchu troops through the city
gates occur silently after night to pre
vent excitement among the population.

Rumors are current that the emperor
has been spirited away and that Prince

committed suicide. There aro many such
stories. They may or may not be true.
The American legation hue Issued orders
that the women and children living along
the Peking-Hankow railway and alsu In

proceed as noon aa porslblo to the coast.
The American consul general at Han

American, A. If. Kepler, has been
wounded In the fighting around that
city. Consular reports from Nanking are
pessimistic. The new troops fear an at
tack by the old troops and are clamoring
for ammunition, which the viceroy re
fuses to give them. They were ordered
to leave the city, but declined. The
viceroy of. Klang 8u has chartered the
Rrltlsh steamer Pel Chlng, which lies In

Troops Refuse to Move.
Six thousand of the Twentieth division
at Lan-Chau have refused to entrain for
Hankow. Instead they sent a memorial
to Peking asking for the immediate pro
mulgation of a constitution.
The loan scheme whereby China hopes
to raise many million dollars through a
Belgian and French syndicate Is consid
ered dangerous In fome quarters. The
national asaembly la likely to oppose It
fiercely, while foreign assistance for the
government Is likely to arouse among
the rebels an anti-foreign feeling, which
up to the present has been absent. A
substantial advance on the loan within
a fortnight has been arranged.
A message from Hankow reports an
artillery duel between tbe rebels and the
Chinese gunboats. The town of Tal-Yuen
Fu in Shan SI province. Is reproted to
have Joined the revolution. Previous mes-
sages from that place said a rising was
expected and that a run on the banks
was under way.
A foreign naval report from Hankow
says that on the morning of October 7
the imperial troops advanced and cap
tured Kilometre Ten, adding that the
rebels made very little resistance and re
tired, leaving many guns and much camp
equipage. The government' estimate ot
the rebels' casualties in the Hankow
battle Is 3.000. The government's success
declared aa largely due to the work of
the naval squadron under Admiral Bah,

The Increase from !H0 delegates, which

New Jersey, Texas, Washington, 4 each,
other states either will gain two each
or retain llio apportionment ot the 19U8
The basis used by the national com
mittee on distributing delegates to the
national convention among the states,
waa attacked In a statement tonight by
Hens tor Jonathan Bourne, Jr., president
of the National Progressive Republican
league. The progressive organisation de
mands that delegates lie apportioned on
the basis of republican votes cast In the
states; not on the basis of the number
of congressional districts.
finch u plan would greatly reduce the
number of delegates from aouthern states
where republican vote is small, l'slng
the 7,ti77.47l votes cast for President Taft
as a basis and I.O60 as the number ot
delegates In the 1912 convention, the Pro
gressive It ague estimates that there
Would be a delegate to the convention for
each K.H& republican votes. That would
reduce Alabama to seven delegates; Mis
sissippi to five, Koulh Carolina to four
