addressed an Important communication
to Cuba and arranged to send Mr. Taft
and Mr. Bacon to that Inland on Sat
urday to make a thorough Investiga
tion of conditions there and lend their
Influence to restore peace.
The communication ia addressed to
the Cuban Minister to the United
States, Senor Quesada. It Is an Im
passioned plea to Cuba to realize her
responsibilities as a self-governing Re
public and to restore peace In the isl
and. Attention is called in no uncer
tain language to the responsibility
which the United States bears to the
island and the certainty that that re
sponsibility will necessarily be exer
cised, should peace not be preserved.
The President says he has certain in
formation tnat the peace of the island
is menaced and American property has

Mr. Taft and Mr. Bacon will leave
for Cuba Sunday. They will go by
rail to Key West, Florida, and frqm
there the Journey to Havana' will be
completed on a naval vessel, probably

The conference which resulted in the
Cuban decision began at Sagamore
Hill shortly after 3 o'clock this after
noon and continued until 10 o'clock
tonight. At its conclusion Mr. Taft,
Secretary Bonaparte and Mr. Bacon

Mr. Taft said as he left Oyster Bay
that he had no Idea as to the length
of his visit to Cuba. He indicated
that there would be no haste in the
investigation, which would be thor

discussion will be divulged by those
attending the conference, the state

the President was Intended to cover

it was desirable to do so in publlo

Following is President Roosevelt's
Writes as Friend of Cuba.
In this crisis In the affairs of the Re
public of Cuba I write you not merely be
cause you are the Minister of Cuba accredited
to this Government, but because we were
Intimately drawn together at the time when
the United States Intervened In the affairs of
t'uba with the result of making her an In
dependent nation. You know how sincere my
affection and admiration and regard for Cuba
are; you know that I never have done and
never shall do anything In reference to Cuba
sav with such sincere regard for her welfare.
Tou also know the pride I felt because it
came to me as President to withdraw the
American troops from the Island of Cuba and
officially to proclaim her Independence and
to wish her God speed In her career as a
Solemn Warning to People.
I desire now through you to say a word of
solemn warning to your people, whose oornest
well-wisher 1 am. For seven years Cuba has
been In a condition of profound peace and of
steadily growing prosperity. For four years
this peace and prosperity have obtained uuder
her own Independent government. Her peace,
prosperity and Independence are now menaced,
for all possible evils that can befall Cuba
the worst Is the evil of anarchy Into which
civil war and revolutionary disturbance will
assuredly throw her. "Whoever la resoonslble
for armed revolution and outraga. whoever Is
responsible in any way for the condition of
affairs that now obtains. Is an enemy of
Cuba, and doubly heavy Is the responsibility
of the man. affecting to be the ejpeclal cham
pion of Cuban Independence, who takes any
step which wjll Jeopardise that Independence.
For there Is Just one way In which Cuban
Independence can be secured and that Is for
the Cuban people to show their ability to
continue In the path of peaceful and orderly
progress. This Nation aeka nothing of Cuba
save that It shall continue to develop as It has
developed during the past seven years, that
It ehall grow and practice the orderly liberty
which will assuredly bring an ever-Increasing
mass of peace and prosperity to the beautiful
Queen of the Antilles.
When Intervention Will .Come.
Our intervention in Cuban affairs win only
come If Cuba herself shows that she has fallen
into the Insurrectionary habit; that she lacks
the self-reatralnt necessary to peaceful self
government, and that her contending factlona
have plunged the country Into anarchy.
I solemnly adjure all Cuban patriots to band
together to elnk all differences and personal
ambitions and to remember that the only way
that they can preserve the Independence of
the republic Is to prevent the necessity of
outside interference by rescuing It from ths
anarchy of civil war. I earnestly hope that
this word of adjuration of mine, given In
the name of the American people, the stancheat
friends and well-wishers of Cuba that there
re In all the world, will be taken as it Is
meant, will be seriously considered and will
be acted upon, and. If so acted upon, Cuba's
permanent Independence, her permanent suc
cess as a republic. Is assured.
Under the treaty with your government. I.
as President of the United States, have a duty
In this matter which I cannot shirk. The
third article of that treaty approximately con
fers upon the United States the right to In
tervene for the maintenance In Cuba of a
government adequate for the protection of
life, property and Individual liberty. The
treaty conferring this right Is the supreme
law of the land and furnishes me with the
right and the means of fulfilling the obliga
tion that I am under to protect American In
terests. Must Cease Hostilities.
The Information at hand shows that social
bonds throughout the Island have been so re
laxed that life, property and Individual lib
erty are no longer safe. - I have received
authentic Information of Injury to and de
struction of American property. It Is, in my
Judgment, imperative for the sake of Cuba
that thfre shall be an Immediate cessation
of hostilities and eome arrangement which
will secure the permanent pacification of the

War. Mr. Taft, and the Assistant Secretary

return from South America, but the seeming
Imminence of the crisis forbids further delay.
Through you I desire In this way to com
municate with the Cuban government and
with the Cuban people, and accordingly I
am sending you a copy of this letter to be
presented to President Palma. and have also
directed Its Immediate publication.
WHO REPRESENTS MAJORITY?
Taft and Bacon to Decide Hostili
ties Will Be Suspended.
WASHINGTON, Sept 14. With the
principals at Oyster Bay an1 only agents
in Washington, It was difficult tonight to
secure any explanation of the sudden de
cision of the President to dispatch Sec
retary Taft and Acting Secretary of State
Bacon to Cuba, as announced from
Oyster Bay. Predicated entirely on the
course of the administration's treatment
of the Cuban question in its earlier
phases and having in mind especially the
policy Inaugurated by Secretary Root
toward Santo Domingo, after he assumed
office, it is the common belief here that
his purpose is to secure from absolutely
dependable sources Information that will
establish clearly the fact that President
Palma either does or does not In his
administration represent a majority of
the Cuban people.
Who Represents Majority.
From the San Domingo precedent, when
President Morales was forced to sustain
himself or sink, the administration Is be
lieved to be determined to allow the ma
jority of the Cuban people to prevail in
the government of the Island. The Teller
amendment, declaring for the independ
ence of Cuba, as read in connection with
the Piatt amendment, is understood in
official circles here to warrant this con
struction of the proper attitude of the
United States Government in the present
Cuban crisis. It will be for Mr. Taft and
Mr. Bacon to determine for themselves
whether In their, opinion the best Interests
of the island are represented by the revo
lutionary forces or whether. In ''the in
terests of order and public weal and the
future welfare of Cuba, the Palma gov
ernment should be sustained. Of course
their report to the President will be
merely advisory and it rests with him to
determine whether he shall accept their
Will Suspend Hostilities.
But it is assumed that pending their
decision and report the naval forces of
the United States will endeavor to main
tain the status quo and there la reason
to believe from the report that the in
surgent leaders, Zayas and Castillo have
offered to surrender to Commander Col
well of the American cruiser Denver, that
they are prepared to accept thiB arbitra
ment. Therefore a cessation of hostilities la
expected, as soon as the leaders of the
various insurgent bands have been in
formed of the President's action today,
though, of. course it is possible that,
owing to the difficulty of communicating
with them from Havana, some clashes
may occur before the news reaches them.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 14. Having done
everything in the way of preparation for
eventualities in Cuba which prudence and
experience could suggest, the officials in
Washington who are temporarily acting
as heads of the military branches of the
Government today did nothing more than
await developments and watch the exe
cution of the plans they had already
formed. It was, of course, possible as the
result of the Cabinet councdl at Oyster
Bay that other orders might come from
the President, but such was not the case,
and It was said that there was nothing
to be done but to await developments in

HAVANA, Sept 14. The extra session
of Congress called by President Palma
completed at one sitting the business for
which it was summoned; namely the
granting to President Palma ftie fullest
powers not already constitutionally grant
ed the executive for carrying on the war,
including the right to appropriate any
public funds for war purposes, revoking
appropriations voted at the preceding ses
sion of Congress in order to permit the
diversion of the money Involved to prose
cution of the war and authorizing in
crease of the rural guards to 10,000 and
the artillery to 2000. This trebles the
former force of rural guards and doubles
the artillery. These measures, which
were combined in one blanket bill, were
passed by party votes, the Liberals and
Independents refraining from voting and
the Liberal Nationalists voting with the
Palma Asks Means to Fight.
President Palma submitted a brief mes
sage, principally devoted to deploring the
conduct of the opposition, whom he
charged with the responsibility of caus
ing the rebellion. The message contained
no recommendations beyond suggesting
that Congress approve all recent execu
tive decrees and take such steps as may
be deemed advisable for ending the war.
The President regretted that the tlrst
extra session of Congress should have
been necessitated by a disturbance of
public order and said nobody would have
expected that four years after the in
auguration of the republic It would have
been in the mldfst of a rebellion threaten
ing the stability .of the government, caus
ing the sincerity of Cuban professions to
be distrusted by the world nd endanger
ing he Independence and sovereignty
which has been purchased so dearly with
the blood of thousands of Cubans after
long years of cruel sacrifices.
"Who," asked the President, "would
have . supposed that with the prosperity
of the country and the well being of the
people so advancing, with millions in the
treasury after paying $14,000,000 to the
army of liberation and Investing $11,000,000
in public improvements and with such
splendid credit abroad, there would be
Cubans who would conspire to change
the constitutional order by placing armed
force, violence and anarchy before law,
order and peace, to the country's shame
The President charged his political
opponents with having, ever since the
opening of the last election campaign,
plotted to use violence, and in support
of this he Instanced the attack on the
rural guards In the Guanabacoa bar
racks last February. He added that
those who at the last election used vio
lent'methods to maintain power at all
costs are the same who, without mercy
to their country, organized dark and
unscrupulous conspiracies, usingssas
sinatlon and seeking to seduce the
army of the republic from -its loyalty
as a means of reaching their despicable
. True to Democratic Methods.
"The executive," said the President,
"has had knowledge of these conspira
cies and could have adopted preventive
measures, but it wished to proceed only
in accordance with democratic princi
ples in a strictly lawful and clearly
justifiable manner, never Imagining, In
view of the prosperous and progressive
condition of the country, that any ex
cept adventurers would have done such
The message sketched the events
of the revolution, the imprisonment of
alleged, conspirators and the inade
quacy of the military force and said It
would not. be discreet to send more sol

Easy to Crush Rebellion.
"We have not wished to resort to
arms. Why should we? This 1b a re
public, and we could not believe that
our own citizens would try to over
throw it But now the time has come
for the government to act, and it will,
in a manner that will surprise those
who have characterized our unwilling
ness to resort to extreme measures as
unpreparedness. Our rural guard, our
artillery and police forces have done
good work and. if the rurales are in
creased to 10,000 men and the artillery
men to 2J00, the rebellion will at once
be crushed out. With laws also enact
ed that will permit of adequate punish
ment of traitors, it will be a compar
atively easy task to restore order."
Proceed Without Quorum.
When the Senate assembled it was one
short of a necessary two-thirds for a
quorum. After the message and blanket
bill had been read Senator Reclo, Liberal,
and . Senator Sangullly, Independent,
called attention to this, disclaiming any
intention of obstructing Congress during
a grave situation, but Insisting that the
discrepancy be made a matter of record.
Senator Bravo Correoso asserted that
In an. extraordinary session a quorum
was not necessary,' and this view was
affirmed by a party vote.
In the House of Representatives only
40 were present, two less than the legal
opening quorum. The Senate bill passed
the House ' by a party vote, and by a
party vote also a resolution of confidence
in the President was adopted.
A motion for the appointment of a
peace commission of five members to
negotiate with the Insurgents was re
jected. Ready to Quit With Intervention.
The events of today Indicated that the
insurgents in Havana Province held the
view that the landing of bluejackets
from the Denver signified intervention,
as they signified their readiness on that
occasion to quit the field.
The railroads are completely tied up.

Speech -by Congressman
FINISH JETTY FIRST, SATS
That further extension of the Co
lumbia bar Jetty should not begin
until the entire sum for finishing the
breakwater shall be available
$2,500.000 Is the opinion of Lieutenant-Colonel
Roessler, expressed by
him last night at a meeting of the
Chamber of Commerce, attended by
Congressman Ransdell of Louisiana,
member of the rtrers and harbors
committee. Colonel Roessler advised
also that the Jetty be finished "before
asking large sums for work farther
up the river," and that any sum
which Congress may appropriate for
the Columbia be not divided In such
way as to prevent early construction
of the Jetty.
This means that the Celllo canal
and the river projects below Portland
should wait, or rather that work on
them should proceed slowly. Pro
vided the Government continues Its
present policy of small appropriations.
Colonel Roessler satd that an appro
priation large enough to build the
canal all at once Is unlikely and "the
most that I anticipate, unless Con
gress adopts the policy of making
more liberal appropriations for rivers
and harbors than heretofore. Is bi
ennial appropriation large enough to
make a contract and to keep up work

mouth of the river, and that the other
projects, having for their purpose the
opening up of this great waterway, .should
wait or proceed slowly until the biggest
and most vital undertaking of them all
Is completed. This la the opinion of Lieutenant-Colonel
Roessler, of the United
States Engineers, voiced by him at the
meeting of the river and harbor improve
ment enthusiasts, held last night at the
Chamber of Commerce.
One hundred or more of the most prom

Post-Intelligencer from Valdes says:
The steamer Oregon was wrecked on
tho rocks of Hinchinbrook Island, at tne
entrance to Prince "William Sound, at U
o'clock last night. She was trying to find
the entrance to the sound In the dark
ness and was running under a slow bell
when the headland loomed up before her.
Although the engines were reversed in
stantly, her headway could not bai
checked and the vessel struck hard
enough to teur the bottom nearly off.
It was low tide, and when the water
began to rise It soon filled the engine,
room to the second grating. The first
mate and four men left Immediately tr
an open boat for Valdes, 60 miles distant,
to get assistance. They rowed until 9
o'clock tonight to reach a cable office.

60 passengers. They should reach the
wreck at 2 o'clock tomorrow morning.!
There was no sea running at the tims ,
of the wreck, but the stranded steamer -Is
exposed to the full force of the swell.
The passengers are all safe. The vea-1

VESSEL OF MANY MISHAPS
Oregon Has Met Ill-Fortune on
The Oregon was on the Portland-San
Francisco run for about 20 years, al
though she was not kept there contlnu.
ously for that time. She was operated for
years by the O. R. & N. Co. In conjunc
tion with the Elder and State of Califor
nia, and made two trips as late as a year
The craft had a checkered career, and,
while running out of this port had herj
full share of mishaps. During a heavy,
fog on the Lower Columbia in 1S-S9. sha
collided with the British ship Clan Mc-'
Kenzle. The starboard bow of the Ore-'
gon as far back as the cabin was carried
away. The steamer Elder took her place)
on the run. i
She went on the rocks near Nome In
1897, but was warped off without serious
Injury. In 1899 she sailed for Alaska.!
After leaving Astoria the coal in hep;
bunkers caught fire, and she was forced)
to put back to Astoria. On the same.
trip she went on the beach In Alaskan
waters and narrowly escaped being
wrecked. She was left high on the beach
by a big tide, and when the water re
ceded, she lay far over on her side. Sha
was floated, however, on the flood tide.
It was found that the timbers of the
Oregon were strained somewhat as a re
sult of this experience, and her owners
laid several hundred barrels of cement at
the bottom of her hold, wet It and let it
set, stiffening Wr considerably.
In the Fall of 1901, she was one of ths
last boats out of Nome and had a full
passenger list. She had to her credit
some of the fastest runs between the
Sound and Nome, and had become a
favorite steamer with the Nome cam
paigners. During the voyage down in
the Gulf of Alaska, she dropped her tall
shaft and drifted about for a fortnight
until picked up and towed in.
She had been provisioned for a voyage
that was expected to last not more than
ten days, and when she went adrift great
hardships were experienced by the pas
sengers, who were necessarily thrown on
very short rations. Great anxiety was
caused to her owners and to relatives of
those on board.
The Oregon was afire off Eureka. Cal..
during February, 1906, and it was thought
for a time she would have to be run on
the beach. The blaze was finally extin
guished. The wreck of the unlucky steamer com
pletes the chain of accidents she has ex
perienced on this coast.
