Twice Saved Cuba From the
Yoke of Tyranny, Say
Liberal Orators.
Denunciation of America at Moderate
Meeting Cnnses 1i.snpiroval IMe
of Pines Question 'ot Affect
ed by Intervention.
HAVANA. Oct. 11. An immense crowd
of Literals, mostly npRroes. from all
Iarts of Havana and Its suburbs, met
Uripadler-Gcni r.U Arenciba and other re
turninK cx-rcbel chiefs at the terminus of

Various addresses were made express
ing satisfaction at the result of the revo
lution and landing American interven
tion. The speechmaking continued at in
tervals until a late hour tonight.
Uproarious applause greeted the speech
of Jose Oastollaiins, who advocated bid
ding farewell to Messrs. Tat and Bacon
with a big demonstration in order to im
press them with the fact that the Lib
eral party appreciated the dealings of the
United States with Cuba, and to cause
President Roosevelt to realize the sympa
thy of the Liberals with American en
deavors. Senor Castellanos said In conclusion
that the American commissioners must
leave Cuba carrying no doubt of Cuba's

Speaker's Attack on America Meets
With Slight Approval.
HAVANA, Oct. 11. The executive com
mittee of the Moderate party and a dozen
Moderate Senators and Congressmen had
a provisional meeting tonight and de
elded to call a general meeting of the
party for November 9 to discuss the re
organization of the party.
One of the speakers hotly charged that
the officials of the American Government
had come to Cuba in secret conjunction
with the Liberals in order to deprive the
Palma government of Its authority be
cause Palma would not lend himself to
furthering the ambitions of certain Amer
ican trusts. These statements, however,
were received with slight approval.
Provisional Government Will Leave
Senate to Decide on Sovereignty.
HAVANA, Oct. 11. The Provisional
Government will have nothing to do
with the question of the sovereignty of
the Isle of Pines or with the separa
tion of the government of the island
from the resf of the Cuban Republic.
The executive authority of the United
States already has declared that the
Isle of Pines belongs to Cuba, and has
embodied that affirmation in a treaty
conceding- the sovereignty of the island
to Cuba and this treaty Is now pending;
ratification in the American Senate.
The entire matter being one for the
adjudication of the State Department,
the Provisional Government, which is
wholly under the War Department,
will not mix therein.
The American residents of the Isle
have adopted unanimously a resolution
exonerating Secretary of State Root
and General Leonard Wood from all
blame in connection with the turning
over of the isle to Cuba, and they feel
that this step ought to open the way
to negotiations for making the Isle
American property.
Governor Taft has decided that the
pay of the Cuban Senators and Con
gressmen be slopped October 1. when
the Palma government ceased. He will
decree the Congress to be In recess
until the question of its status Is set
tled. Mrs. Taft and Mrs. Bacon held a
reception this afternoon in the main
saloon of the palace. It was attended
by several hundred Cubans and others,
including almost all the Army and
Navy officers here. Mr. Taft gave a
dinner In the palace to the naval offi
cers. The battleship Louisiana will leave
here Saturday afternoon for Norfolk,
via Key West, with Mr. Taft and his
party on board. The Louisiana will
he accompanied by the battleship Vir
ginia, with G-eneral Frederick Funston
on board. The battleship New Jersey
and the cruiser Minneapolis will sail
for the North tomorrow, followed
shortly by the cruiser Newark. The
cruiser Brooklyn and the battleship
Texas will remain here.
Charles K. Magoon, who succeeds
Mr. Taft as Provisional Governor, to
day met the heads of the departments,
familiarizing himself with affairs.
Archipelago Cannot Await Magoon's
Return From Cuba.
HAVANA. Oct. 11. The Associated
Press learned today on the highest au
thority that the vacancy in the office
of the Vice-Governor of the Philippines
cannot await the conclusion of the duties
here of Charles E. Magoon. who Is to
succeed Mr. Taft as Provincial Governor
of Cuba. This Is a great disappointment
to Mr. Taft, who desired that Mr. Magoon
take up his work soon In the Philippines.
It its believed that an appointment as
Vice-Governor of the Philippines will be
made immediately on Mr. Taft's return
to Washington.
WASHINGTON. Oct" 11. It is said here
that the original intention was to have
Governor Magoon, when he reached the
Philippines, take up in addition to the
duties of Vice-Governor-General and
member of the Philippine Commission,
the duties of the portfolio of Minister of
Finance and Minister of Education.
Tells Followers Taft Should Give
Rebels the Offices.
HAVANA, Oct. 11. Confidential agents
of the late Cuban government today re
ported to Governor Taft that the meeting
of rebel leaders at the home of General
Castillo last night was not for the sale
purpose of bidding each other farewell, as
the participants alleged. Castillo ad
dressed his associates, urging that Gov-
ernor' Taft be called upon to declare his
attitude towards the men who were re
sponsible for overturning the Palma gov
ernment and declared that the provisional
government would have made slow prog
ress but for the assistance of the rebels.
Therefore, he argued. Mr. Taft should
show his gratitude by ousting the Mod
erates from office and substituting for
them men who had fought for good gov
ernment. In spite of the fact that he was the
host. Castillo did not' obtain support for
his demand. Generals Ferrara and As
bert made patriotic speeches, saying they
fought for their country and not for
spoils. This sentiment was generally in
dorsed, and Castillo was voted down. Sev
eral speeches were then made applauding
Governor Taft, President Roosevelt and
the United States for their generous
course towards Cuba.
The provisional government is unable to
make an accurate estimate of the conflict
ing reports regarding the meeting.
Why Bell Was Put In Command.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 11. The detail of
General F. J. Bell to command the Amer
ican military forces in Cuba was made
directly by the President and the reason
for that order, as stated by competent
authority here, was that by his adminis
tration as military governor of the pro
vince of Batangas, one of the most turbu
lent of the Philippines subdivisions. Just
after the crisis had been reached in the
Aguinaldo rebellion. General Bell showed
such a combination of the soldier and
diplomat that his selection was deemed
expedient to undertake similar duties in
Bryan Says Democratic Grows
Stronger, Aristocratic Weaker.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo., Oct. 11. W. J.
Bryan addressed several thousand people
for an hour and a half In Centra) Park
this afternoon. He was Introduced by
Major James Bllan and said in part:
"At all times and In all countries there
are two parties the Democratic and the
aristocratic. One of these parties is for
the people and the other is against them.
In the last year I have visited nearly
every country of the world and find these
two parties everywhere. And in every
country the Democratic party Is growing
stronger and the aristocratic party grow
ing weaker. Aristocracy is gradually dy
ing out of the world.
"In this country there io one party that
Is much nearer to the people than the
other. And that Is the Democratic
At the close of his speech the people
thronged about Mr. Bryan's carriage to
grasp his hand.

ances of that pre-eminent leader, Presi
dent Roosevelt. We express our unquali
fied approval of the labor of our Republi
can Senators and Representatives in the
Congress of the United States."
On the subject of tariff revision, ap
proval is given of President Roo.sevelt'3
declaration that "whenever a given rate
or schedule becomes evidently disad
vantageous to the Nation, because of the
changes which will go on from year to
year in our conditions, and where it Is
feasible to change this rate or schedule
without much dislocation of the system,
it will be done, while a general revision
of the rates and schedules will be under
taken whenever it shall appear to the
sober business sense of our people that,
on the whole, the benefits to be derived
from making such changes will outweigh
the disadvantages."
The platform says that "as the Demo
cratic party has become the victim of the
demagogue and the doctrinaire, the task
of preserving our most cherished insti
tutions falls to the Republican party."

Then, too, his health, la poor, and his

Another reason for his anger at the

and Doctor Wanted Property.
TOMS RIVER. N. J., Oct. 11. That
there had been quarrels between Dr.
Frank Brouwer and his wife, and that
Dr.. Brouwer had said that he intended

given today by Miss Elizabeth Hyer, sis
ter of the woman for whose alleged mur
der the doctor is on trial.
Surrogate Grovan, of Ocean County, tes
tified today that the. defendant filed an
affidavit before him on December 29, In
which it was stated that Mrs. Brouwer's
estate was valued at $t000. and that Dr.
Brouwer and his two children were the
beneficiaries. The placing of the Surro
gate on the stand was regarded as an at
tempt on the part of the prosecution to
establish a motive for' the alleged crime.

the day. Judge Hendrickson ordered the
Jurors to stand up, and declared that he
had heard they had been talking to per
sons in the streets about the case. He
sal that, If he heard of any such action

attended Mrs. Brouwer 11 days before her
death. He would not swear Mrs. Brou
wer was suffering from strychnine poison
in. Dr. Cate, who signed the death certifi
cate, disappeared soon after Mrs. Brou
wer's death, and this, at the time, was
deemed to have significance in connection
with the case. Dr. Cate, in answer to
the prosecutor's questions, said that his
disappearance had no connection with
the death of Mrs. Brouwer. He said he
went to New York, which was the last
he remembered until he came to. in Gor
shen. Dr. Cate also gave his reasons for
supposing that Mrs. Brouwer had died of
Brlght's disease.
