man's homecoming at this time is
awaited with interest. In view of the
recent reports In Wall street that he
has obtained an option on a controlling
interest in the New Tork Central lines,
which would srive him an ocean-to-ocean
route. But that this is the reason for
his return is but speculation, for no
statement has been made to that effect at
the Union Pacific offices here or by Mr.
It was even said at the TJnlon Pacific
offices today that no word had been re
ceived of his contemplated departure
from Cherbourg tomorrow.
The coincidence of the financier's re
turn at a time when the New Tork Cen
tral rumor cropped out strongest, how
ever, is Interpreted by Wall street gos
sip to mean that he will exercise the op
tion upon his arrival here, covering about
S.'O.OV.OOO worth of stock formerly con
trolled for the most part by the Vander
hilt interests. Because of the conflicting
reports concerning Mr. Harrlman today,
the so-called Harrlman stocks fluctuated
widely and the market generally was un
settled. Union Pacific broke from 2154
to 2MV but late in thep afternoon, when
the report of his homecoming was con
firmed, union Pacific rallied and there
was a general recovery.

Rail Rates Raised to Denver.

Mr. Barrett spoke of improvements in

the Increasing Investments of United States

emphasis to tlic Importance of developing
closer trade relations and of improving the
facilities of commerce between the United
States and her alster republics. Legitimate
and uLCesful exploitation of this vast field
south of us depends upon four Important
conditions: First, tariff manipulation which
permits of a reciprocal exchange of com
modities: second, flrst-class mail, passenger
and express steamship service to build up and

of banks controlled bv United States capital

more favorable than the Dingley bill for

INDIANS HOLD WATER KEY
Wapato Irrigation Project Is Held
L'p by Redmcn.
NORTH YAKIMA, Wash.. Aug. 17.
(Special.) The fate of the Wapato irri
gation project, which is now ready for the
actual construction work to begin, and
which is intended to reclaim 20.000 acres
of the best land in Yakima County, rests
with the Indian owners of the land.
Under the strict provisions of the law
the Indians would be required to sell
three-fourths of their allotments and
apply the money for water rights for the
remaining one-fourth. This the Indians
refused to do. They are now being of
fered two different forms of contract.
Under one form they may sell 20, 40,
or 60 acres of the allotment and apply
the proceeds on the water rights for the
remainder of the land. Under the other
form they need not sell any land, but
may acquire the water right in the same
manner as white owners, paying for it
in ten annual installments. The lead
ing white men on the reservation are
now doing all in their power to get the
Indians to understand the contracts and
to accept either one, so that the work
on the project may be begun as soon as

SHARP FIGHT DURING t)AY
Three Companies of Blues Are Vir
tually Annihilated by Colored
Cavalry at Middleboro
BOSTON. Aug. 17. At the conclusion of
today's maneuvers in the war game, in
which the army of the red, under Briga
dier General Tasker H. Bliss, -is striving
to defeat the army of the blue, com
manded by Brigadier General William A.
Pew, Jr., and capture Boston.' the army
of the red had made a material advance.
Unless General Pew can concentrate
his troops tomorrow morning to meet the
attack of a force that General Bliss has
massed heavily on the -blues' left, his
army faces defeat.
Armies Close Together.
The two armies tonight are less than a
dozen miles apart. From the general di
rection of the movements of General
Bliss and his army, and the strtngth of
his command, the plan whicn he intends
to follow to capture Boston Is appar
ently revealed for the first time. This is
to annihilate General Pew's extreme left,
and to pass that end with a comparative
ly clear road to Boston.
But for the fact that 1 o'clock, when
both armies ceased operations for the
day, arrived a trifle too soon, the plan
would have succeeded today.t Over at
the extreme left of the blue line three
regiments are facing practically the en
tire red army.
General Bliss' southward movement
was one of determination on a settled
plan, with which every organization
was apparently familiar. It was clean
ly executed and gave evidence that the
red scouts had fully posted Information
on the position of the blues. After the
advance of the reds there was never a
sign of hesitation when the blue's out
posts were encountered. They were
either captured or driven in.
At Middleboro Green, Major Charles H.
Cutler, of the Blue army, with three
skeleton companies of the Eighth Infan
try, was encountered and rendered non
combatant In quick time. - While the Con
necticut squadron of cavalry engaged the
Blues' front. Major Grierson. of the Reds,
with his three troops of the Tenth United
States Cavalry (colored), dismounted, and
acting as infantry and supported by two
machine guns, turned the right flank of
the Blues, while at the same moment
Major Brlegman, with the New York
Cavalry, executed a similar movement
on the left.
Engagement Most Severe.
If It had been actual warfare, it is
believed that there would- not have beep
a blue soldier half an hour after the en
Today's battle took place under condi
tions strongly resembling those of the

MEXICO CITY, Aug. 17. A delayed dis
patch from Acapulco says three severe
earthquake shocks were felt there Mon
