PEABODY IS SILENT.
Will Xbt Tell Why General Chase
Was Recalled From Cripple Creelc
DENVER, Colo., Oct 4. The summoning
to Denver of Brigadier-General John
Chase by Governor Peabody continues to
be the feature of interest in the Cripple
Creek strike. Governor Peabody declines
to give his reasons for ordering tho Gen
eral from duty and placing another In his
command In his stead. When pressed for
a statement tonight the Governor said:
General Chase Is in Denver on detached
duty. His stay Is. Indefinite."
The Governor called General Chase in
conference on two occasions todnv. hut
Just what tho nature of the discussions oc
curring at these meetings was has not
been made public.
It Is persistently rumored that Governor
Peabody has become dissatisfied with cer
tain policies pursued by General Chase In
handling the situation in Cripple Creek,
but no one in authority will verify this
rumor, nor can It be learned In what par
ticular the Governor's Ideas of the proper
method of treating the Cripple Creek
strike disagree with those of General
Chase, If at all.
General Cnase admitted tonight that in
the conferences tonight the question of
his removal from command of the troops
In Cripple Creek was brought up. but that
the matter has not been definitely disposed
of. The immediate cause of the trouble Is
ald to be due to a recent order of General
Chase for a court-martial to try Colonel
Gross, tho paymaster of tho Colorado Na
The report Is that Colonel Gross ob
jected to an examination being made of
the payrolls by a representative of Gen
eral Chase, and that during a dispute
which followed Colonel Gross drew a re
volver and threatened to use It General
Chase, upon learning of the affair, ordered
the arrest of Gross and his trial by court
martial. The latter, according to tho story, came
to Denver and Informed the Governor of
the trouble, and Governor Peabody at once
summoned General Chase to Denver. It Is
said that General Chase Is strenuously op
posing what he considers unfair discrim
ination in pay in favor of certain officers
of the Guard.

Immense Immigration of Cheap
Labor from Southern. Enrope.
ALBANY, N. Y., Oct 4. The State
Department of Labor, in its quarterly
bulletin, attributes the diminution In an
unprecedented degree of employment
and wages reported in June as almost
wholly to labor disputes.
"The lockout In the building trades
of Manhattan and Bronx boroughs of
New York City," it says, "overshadowed
all other disputes of the Summer and
threw several thousand wage-earners
out of work." In general the bulletin
holds that exclusive of the building
trades, New York industries were gen
erally, as active as in the Summer of
"1902, which was a banner year.
According to the bulletin, Immigration
this Summer has exceeded even tho record-breaking
current of last year, and
Indicates tho eagerness of the low-paid
laborers of "Central anjl Southeastern
Europe to enjoy the prosperity which, on
the whole, still reigns In tho United
The largest contingents are still the
Italians, Poles and other races of
Southern and Central Europe, with a
low "standard of education. Notwith
standing the great tide of immigration,
the Superintendent of the -State Free
Employment Bureau In Nevf York City
states that at no time during the quar
ter was he able to meet the demands for
"Prosperity Is so widely diffused," says
the bulletin, "that the servant-keeping
class Is larger than ever before, and
has thus created a demand that ex
ceeds the supply."

Aacleat Artillery of Boston. Escorts
BOSfTON. Oct. 4. Tho quietness of Sun
day was stirred today by the sound of
martial music as the Honorable Artillery
Company of London and their hosts, the
Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company
of this city, marched through some of the
Back Bay streets to Trinity Church. The
services In that edifice had been arranged
by tho British residents of this' citya and
the parade Included, besides the two mili
tary bodies, those army and navy vet
erans of the British service whose homes
I are In this city. The line of march was
well lined with spectators.
The procession was under the leadership
of Lieutenant-Colonel C. S. Courtney,
whose staff for the day included many
British officers, members of a large num
ber of independent military organizations
of New England and several officers of
the "United States Army. At the conclu
sion of the service the parade reformed
and marched to, the American , Hodse,
where tho several organizations were en
tertained at luncheon.
Some members of the visiting corps, in
cluding the Earl of Denbigh, did not at
tend the services at Trinity Church, but
went to the Cathedral of the Holy Cross
with Mayor Collins In the morning. The
two organizations will leave on their trip

President Roosevelt has begun his mes

He is working on it during spare hours at
night Ho will have to prepare two mes
sagesone to the extra session to be called
"November 9, the other to the December
session. Tho message to tho extra session
will deal with little except the question of
Cuban reciprocity, while that in December
will cover a variety of topics. It has been
pretty well agreed already between the
President and his advisers, it Is learned,
that his messages thjs'year will not bring
forward any new issue.
The most Important issue with which he
must deal Is that of an Isthmian canal.
The President Is going slow about this
topic andf will talk with all tho party
leaders before he does anythirig.
Xothing: Very Positive.
The chapter on the tariff will not be of
the strikingly characteristic kind. The
understanding Is that the President will
throw out the idea that the time Is com
ing when tariff schedules must be revised,
but will not say when that time will ar
rive. Tho deliverances on this subject will
be nothing like as positive as those of a

"This action on the part of the Sultan
creates much criticism here, as the Moor
ish government pleading fc existing
crisis, has refused to consider or pay the
claims of the Europeans who have suf

bellion. "I learn that the powers have agreed
to leave the solution of the existing
crisis to France, who will give the neces
sary assistance to the Sultan's govern

protectorate, but France will naturally
