HAVANA. Sept. 17. The only result
thus far of President Palma's order for
the suspension of hostilities have teen
that Liberal leaders who hitherto have
had every reason for anticipating arrest
are circulating openly In Havana again
and even conferring with members of the
government with regard to peace, and
, that such insurgents In the field as have
been consulted, while they express them
selves as agreeable to settling matters
amicably, at the same time assume an in
dependent attitude which cannot be said
to bode particularly well for a prompt
settlement of existing differences.
In the meantime, Clenfuegos Is In a
state of siege, communication by tele
graph being severed not only In the di
rection of Havana, but to Santiago as
well. It is known that Clenfuegos had
not been attacked up to midnight Sunday,
but what ha transpired since that time
is not known here.
Rebels Mass Around Havana.
All accounts agree that there easily are
000 Insurgents a few miles southeast of
Havana, and rumors are In circulation
that they will enter the city peaceably if
they are not molested, but that they will
fight If they meet with resistance. All
visitors to Insurgent camps in Havana
Province return with this Impression, but
Jt Is believed no attempt will be made
against Havana until the arrival of Pino
Guerrera's force, which now Is variously
reported to be from 30 to 40 miles distant.
The general impression Is that the pres
ence In Havana harbor of the American
cruiser Denver will not act as a deterrent
to such a movement, the auxiliary cruiser
Dixie having gone to Clenfuegos and the
cruiser Des Moines having gone presuma
bly to bring to Cuba Secretary of War
Taft and Assistant Secretary Bacon.
The announcement from Washington
that American vessels of war will protect
British as well as American interests Is
taken as applying especially to Clenfue
gos, where the English-owned Cuban Cen
tral Railroad has been obliged to suspend
operations and has suffered considerable
damage to Its property. The Western
Railroad, also a British enterprise, Is not
now suffering special damage, except in
the vicinity of Havana, and it Is expected
that traffic on this latter line will be
completely reopened tomorrow.
Peacemakers Start tn Antos.
Three representatives of the Liberal
party started eastward tonight to confer
with the Insurgents In Santa Clara and
other eastern provinces. Several automo
biles loaded with more or less authorized
peacemakers went westward today, but
were obliged to return, not having either
government passes for country touring or
credentials for definite negotiations. Sec
retary Montalvo has refused to Issue per
mits to various persons desiring to make
these Journeys, among them Senator San
General Menocal had a conference this
evening with Vice-President Mendez
Capote and arranged for a satisfactory
committee of veterans to make authorized
Visits to Insurgent camps.
Party Leaders Negotiate.
Alfredo Zayas, the president of the
Liberal party, moved freely about the
city today and even visited the palace,
where he had a conference with Secretary
Montalvo relative to means of securing
peace. Senor Zayas told the Associated
Press that he was hopeful of the final
outcome, although nothing like a definite
basis of agreement had yet been con
' sldered. For the present, he said, he
was largely devoting himself to securing
the release of all suspected conspirators.
He said that by tomorrow he hoped some
thing would have been accomplished.
The peace endeavors have really re
solved themselves more Into negotiations
between the Moderates and Liberals than
between the government and the insur
gents. The Moderates, while entirely
loyal to President Palma, seem now to
be less concerned over his continuance In
office than with the perpetuation of con
trol by their party. Mender Capote, as
president of the Moderate organization,
end Alfredo Zayas, as president of the
Liberal party, will largely be able to
dominate the situation. General Menocal
Js Industriously conferring with both
these political leaders. The veterans have
resumed their peace meetings and the
negotiations with the Insurgents will be
chiefly through them.
Taft Will Be Arbitrator.
The executive committee of the Moder
ate party at a meeting this afUTnoon
voted to continue Its efforts for peace.
Terms were Informally discussed. It is
generally agreed that Mr. Taft must be
the eventual arbiter, and both In Cuban
andjforelgn business circles the hope Is
freely expressed that not only will the
United States settle the present strife.
but that the American Government will
retain sufficient hold on Cuban affairs
to prevent a repetition of the past
A Cuban gunboat went to Marlel to
night to bring to Havana a quantity of
arms and ammunition stored in the quar
antine station, lest It fall Into the hands
of the Insurgents.
The first Insurgent band originating In
the province, of Puerto Principe Is re
ported to have taken the field under
Zayas Bazan, a well-known Camaguayan.
Points of special and present consider
ation in the peace negotiations are the
fixing of a neutral zone and camping
places for the insurgent forces and the
supplying of them with food, which it Is
expected will have to be done by the
Attack City if Bad Faith Shown.
Felipe Romero, who was Instrumen
tal In reviving the peace negotiations,
said tonight that the insurgents out
side of Havana were ready to resort
to arms at a moment's notice if evi
dence developed of lack of faith on the
part of the government, but that they
were anxious to accelerate the peace
efforts if Justice was done. He said
that at present they have no intention
of entering. the capital, but Instead
were showing their strength outside.
He added that the presence of the
cruiser Denver had. nothing to do with
their remaining out of Havana.
Romero asserted that until now
President Palma was not fully cogni
zant of the strength of the Insurgents.
The Liberals, he said, are satisfied
that President Palma is conscientious,
but Insist that alleged election ille
galities and Injustices must be rec
tified. General Rodriguez, with his city
forces has returned into the city and
Rebel Chief States Terms.
General Castillo, the commander of
Insurgents In Havana Province, has
sent the following letter to Mr.
Sleeper, the American Charge d'Af
In view of the letter of the President of
the United States to the Palma government,
I have the honor to Inform you that we are
disposed to suspend hostilities in order to
facilitate peace efforts provided these are
based on new general elections with guaran
tee of justice and legality and on the
resignation of the present forced adminis
tration and guarantee that the peace be
lasting. The revolutionists do not Intend
to permit government by force. They insist
that the people possess the Inviolable right
of electing Congress and provincial and mu
nicipal officers. We have no candidates, but
we shall never permit elections manipulated
by executive fraud and violence to stand.
If through the mediation of Mr. Roosevelt's
government .and a fair construction of the
laws honest elections ensue, the people who
are In arms will suspend operations as soon
as you secure a similar disposition on the
part of Palma. With other Interests and
respecting the majesty of the government,
we sincerely hope for a peace that shall
cement Justice and honesty through the ar
bitration of the President of the United

CHICAGO, Sept. 17. (Special.)
Hearst will be nominated for Governor
of New York by the Democratic con
vention, which assembles at Buffalo
September 25 this Is the understand
ing which exists among the party
bosses of New York, according to. In
formation directly from their councils
and in this connection Chicago poli
ticians are wondering what Mr. Hearst
will do with "nis local "Independence
League," which launched a Municipal
Court ti-ket Saturday evening and Is
today taVking of county and sanitary
district tickets. The local Hearst move
ment Is atyled by political wiseacres
the "Chicago tail to the New York
kite," and party orators are preparing
to demand from the platform an expla
nation of how Hearst can pose as the
foe of bosses Jn Illinois and at the
same time become the beneficiary of an
alliance with Charles F. Murphy, boss
of Tammany, in New York.
Murphy Will Deliver Goods.
The situation in New York where
Hearst has gained much of the politi
cal power that he has recently failed
to eecure in Chicago- is described by a
high source of Information as follows:
"It is about as safe as anything can
be in politics to say that Hearst will be
nominated for Governor of New York a
week from tomorrow by the Democrats
of that state. He will owe his nomina
tion to Tammany through Murphy,
with whom 'ne has an underground ar
rangement that is pretty well under
stood by the public. Jerome has prac
tically no delegates and Mayor Mc
Clelland cannot overthrow Murphy at
this time and cannot give Jerome the

the reformers and Hearst is ready to do
business and stop attacking Murphy for

that Hearst has a lead, Sullivan will go

"Hearst has Erie County and about 20
other counties up state. Murphy will
have New York practically solid, and he
will be able to absolutely dominate the
Buffalo convention for Hearst.
"Jerome will run for Governor as an
Independent, unless Charles E. Hughes is
nominated by tpe Republicans. If Hughes
Is nominated, Jerome will be for
Lawyers Refuse to Be Swung.

lawyers on the ticket. Including ex-Judge

NO FTSIOX FOR DEMOCRATS
Albany Conference Wants Straight
Ticket, and Predicts Victory.
SYRACUSE, N. Y., Sept. 17. An ad
dress to the Democrats of the state has
been Issued by the committee appointed
by the recently-held Albany Democratic

conference. The address declares strong
ly -against fusion. In part It Is as fol
lows: The Independence League has held Us con
rentton and nofliinated Ita ticket, and has
asked Jefferson Democrat and Lincoln Re
publicans to support It. There was presented
at that convention a petition from a num
ber of men calling; themselves Democrats pro
posing: that there should be a conference be
tween the managers of the Independence
League and the Democratic convention look
ing toward fusion.
Now fusion, by which two political parties
unite upon the same candidates,, usually means
a sacrifice of political principles by both sides
for the chance of temporary success. It al
ways is and must be a shameful failure. There
la no reason whatever why the Democratic
party should be betrayed Into fusion; It has
principles and should proclaim them. It has
plenty of men fit to be named for the state
offices to be filled at this election. Let it
place them Hi nomination.
Still less should the Democratic party sub
mit to being; annexed by a movement origin
ating; for the personal exploitation of one roa.it.
however worthy or worthless the movement
and whatever the character of the man.
The Democratic party, if it is to be a
party worthy of respect and fit to be trusted
with power, must remain free and indepen
dent. It must fight the flgnt of the people
against corruption, against unlawful aggre
gations of wealth and power; against all forma
of unprincipled monopoly and special privilege.
But It cannot fight Us fight If it deetrovs it
self by merging its Identity Into that of an
other party, even temporarily.
If the party can be kept true to Its course
we believe it to be on the eve of a great vic
tory. Our political adversaries ace divided
by the bitterest faction differences. What
ever votes the Independence League may draw
will be drawn partly from both parties, but
principally from that uncertain element which
Is always ready to try something new and
has no fixed political principles of any kind.
They will not interfere with the success of
the Democratic party.
We have the chance of a generation. Let
us not throw it away by our own indifference
Name of Order to Be Changed.
MILWAUKEE, Sept 17. The Brother
hood of Locomotive Firemen In sessjon
here spent the entire day in discussing
the changing; of the name of the order.
Before adjournment tonight it was prac
tically decided to change the name to the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and
Englnemen. The reasons leading up to
this change are that fully 25 per cent of
the members of the order are engineers,
having been advanced from the time they

Money to Be Used for
PLAN SPLENDID STRUCTURE
Announcement Made at Ban
quet of Two Organizations.
LADDS TO GIVE $50,000
Estate Pledges Sum Conditionally.
Business Men and Representa
tive Women Will Take Vp
Task of Raising Funds.
The sum of 1350,000 for new buildings
for tho T. M. C. A. and T. W. C. A.
Is to be raised In Portland before Oc
tober 618 days hence according to plans
announced last night at banquet at the
Portland Hotel. One donation of $50,000
by the Ladd estate is already pledged,
conditioned on the raising of the total
amount within the time prescribed.
The new buildings, to cost about $400,
000, are to be placed on a half block of
ground, yet to be purchased, near the
center of the city. The movement, simi
lar to those successfully launched In
other cities, Is headed by four soliciting
committees, which have been appointed
through the two organizations a busi
ness men's committee led by S. G. Reed
to raise $300,000; a representative women's
committee, led by Mrs. A. E. Rockey, to
raise $106,000; a young men's committee,
led by E. B. McNaughton, to raise $50.-
000, and a business women's committee,
led by Dr. S. WhltPslde and Miss Mar
garet Morehouse, to raise $10,000. The
total of these sums, allowing for possi
ble shrinkage, the workers expect to
reach the sum required.
At noon: today the business men's com
mlttee will meet in the Portland Hotel
to appoint sub-committees and map
plans, and at 2:30 o'clock the representa
tive women's committee at the same
place. Each has about 100 members.
Many of the city's most prominent men
and women were at the banquet last
night, among them those who have been
ready heretofore to lend time and money
In promotion of public enterprises.
The purpose was not announced in ad
vance, and many of those attending were
taken by surprise on announcement of the
Promoters Sanguine of Success.
It was not a haphazard announcement,
based on snap Judgment, but represented
the fruits of weeks of careful considera
tion and investigation. Many of the best
business men of the city gave it as their
Judgment that the plan would go through
successfully that the new Portland spirit
would rise to the emergency of getting
the money. And If the amount of enthu
siasm shown last night is a true sign, the
plan will go through without hitch and
the money will be ready for use before
the time required.
The need and Importance of these two
new structures was made plain during
the evening. The present structures occu
pied by the two Institutions are sadly in
adequate to the work of character-building
In which they are engaged. The T.
M. C. A. outgrew its home on Fourth
street at least three years ago. Its quar
ters are cramped and crowded In every
branch of activity, from education to
gymnasium work. And the same thing
applies to the young women's rented
quarters at Sixth and Oak streets.
For many months various plans for se
curing a new home have been considered.
Out of this has grown the Idea which was
presented last evening and which has been
productive of fruits In many cities of the
The movement will mean to Portland,
if successful, a large and fully equipped
new building for each organization. While
they are to be housed under one roof, the
structure will be divided Into two parts,
with separate entrances and equipment
so as to constitute. In reality, separate
Plan of Securing Funds.
The plan for securing the funds. In
brief. Is this: Four soliciting committees,
aggregating about 400 men and women
will take the field Immediately. Not only
will the rich man's money be asked for,
but the newsboy's pennies also. Every
one will be Invited to do his share, ac
cording to his means, whether great or
' The banquet last evening at which the
plan was outlined was an enthusiastic
one from the moment that the purposes
of calling those present together was an
nounced. A short programme was pre
' pared. Intended to develop not only the
general scheme of procedure, but the at
titude of Portlanders upon the subject.
The need of the new structures was
made thoroughly manifest.
Robert Livingston served as master of
ceremonies. As the last course of the
dinner was served in the capacious dining-room
of the Portland he arose and
stated briefly the order of the evening.
He urged the need of more space for the
two associations, devoted to the needs
of Portland's young men and young wo
men. Stating that Seattle is "now con
structing a new building for this pur
pose and that many other coast and
Western cities are doing the same he
thought that Portland would not consent
to be behind any of her sister cities In
Y. SI. C. A. Potent Factor for Good.
"The T. M. C. A.," said Mr. Livingston
"is no longer a place where a few men
of a religious turn of mind gather to
pray for the sins of the community. It
Is now one of the most potent factors
for good in the world. It is undergoing
tremendous growth with no room to keep
pace with this development. It Is nam
pered by cramped quarters. There are
in the United States SO cities now en
gaged in putting up these new build
ings. There will soon be 51, for Poryand
will step Into line.
K. M. Brannick was introduced as the
next speaker.' He told of the value of the
T. M. C. A. work, pointing to the fact
that the manufacturing firm of which he
is a representative, is putting up a build
ing of this class for the T. M. C. A. or
ganization of South Bend, Ind., and at a
cost to the company of $250,000, which cost
it Is meeting alone and unaided.
"Any city which has not a fully-developed
Institution of this kind Is behind the
times," he said. "I am sure Portland
will not be behind."
Rabbi Stephen S. Wise spoke in elo
quent words of the breadth of Association
work. During the course of his remarks
he took occasion to express a hope that
the Association will some day assume a
catholicity such as to enable those not
of the Christian belief to become regular,
rather than associate members. He felt
that people generally should oome to tho
assistance of the Association In this new
undertaking, as they were powerful Influ
ences for good, resting on three great
basic principles education, democracy and
"It is a mighty bulwark of religion,
which Is regenerating and recreating

Address by Miss Helen F. Barnes.
Mies Helen F. Barnes, an interna
tional secretary of the T. W. C. A.,
spoke with feeling- of the need of that
association's work, saying the need has
never been so great as at the present
day, when there are so many women
earning their own livelihood in the
city, where they are surrounded by
temptations. On behalf of the young
women of Portland she made an appeal
for the co-operation and assistance of
those present In the new undertaking.
C. S. Ward, InternAlonal secretary of
the Y. M. C. A., spoke In an entertain
ing way of what other cities are do
ing for the association. He said he did
not believe Portland would be behind.
"You have here all the natural ad
vantages of a great city," he said. "But
natural advantages alone do not make a,
great city. It takes men and women
of character and now is the time to
embark on a larger scale in the profit
able manufacturing Industry character-building."
Miss Constance MacCorkle spoke
along similar lines, dwelling particu
larly upon the advantages which the
Y. W. C. A. homes offer to the bread
winner, affording wholesome surround
ings and educational advantages.
As Miss MacCorkle closed her ad
dress, a club of young ladles, who are
active in Y. W. C. A. work, filed in
from the corridor and sang a song com-.
posed for the occasion and. in a face
tious vein embodying the appeal of the
Y. W. C. A. glris for a new home. This
novelty took the assemblage by storm.
'We'll have to give them a building;
that's one thing sure," said Mr. Living
stone, as the young women filed out.
Mayor Lane Speaks.
"Give them anything they want,"
said Mayor Lane, who wag called on
for remarks at this Juncture. "I can't
see any way out of It except to give
them the new Wells !Fargo building.
There will be no other buildings big
enough or ready soon enough."
The Mayor concluded with a tribute
to the association workers, saying
that they give very little trouble to
S. G. Reed then formally outlined
the plan of campaign and unveiled a
large framed picture of the proposed
building, which brought forth a lively
round of applause. He was followed
by H. W. Stone, the general secretary
of the Y. M. C. A- who urged the ear
nest co-operation of all those assigned
to committees, asking that they make
any sacrifices that may be necessary

Bought Pennsylvania's Holdings.
Mr. Harrlman and James StUlman
have been some time directors of the
Baltimore Ohio and, presumably with
other members of the Union Pacific
party, have been extensive holders of
its stock. It is now said that the $40,
000,000 in round numbers of Baltimore
& Ohio stock recently sold by the Penn
sylvania Railroad Company to Kuhn,
Loob & Co. has been disposed of by the
banking-house to Union Pacific Inter
ests. The Pennsylvania at the beginning
of the year owned directly $30,000,300
common and $21,480,000 preferred stock
of the Baltimore & Ohio and held,
through Its control In the company,
$19,986,600 more of that stock, taking
common and preferred together. These
holdings aggregated $71,379,900, or
nearly 40 per cent of the, total stock of
the Jaltfmore & Ohio. It is now under
stood that the holdings disposed of to
Kunn. Loeb & Co. comprised the $30,
293,900 of the common and about $10,
000, M0 of the preferred stock owned
by the Pennsylvania directly, leaving
that company still the owner of about
$11,300,000 or directly-held preferred
stock and through Its subsidiary com

Of the $27,750,000 new common stock
