BELL IN COMMAND
fiostOR Will Return to United
States Witb Secretary Taft.
COMMAND WAS ONLY TEMPORARY
One Faction of Cubans Declared Fun
ton Deserted Them In War
Havana, Oct. 11. Genoial Frederick
FunBton will not contlnne in command
of the American forces in Cnba. Gov
ernor Talt annonnced tonight that he
and General FunBton will leave Havana
for the United State on Saturday on
the battleship Louisiana. With them
will go Assistant Secretary of State Ba
con, and the affaiiB of Cnba will be left
in the hands of Governor Magoon and
General J. F. Bell. Explaining the
change of plans, Mr. Taft said:
"General Funston was Bummoned on
a harry call from the Pacific coast be
cause he was well acquainted with
many of the insurgent chiefa here, and
it was thought be could aid ua, aa he
did greatly, in bringing the men in
arms to an agreement. General Funs
ton was put temporarily in command of
the troops in Cuba merely aa a conven
ience until General Bell should arrive.
General Funston, Mr. Bacon and my
self, with Mrs. Taft and Mrs. Bacon
and our secretaries, are returning to
our permanent duties."
Taft'a especial confidence in the chief
of the general staff's ability to carry
out the program the governor haa ini
tiated resulted in the decision to con
tinue him in the island.
Many Cubans of the faction to which
Mendez Capote and others who organ
ized the Moderate party belong, were
outskpoken against General Funston,
alleging that he bad deserted them in
the war to throw off the yoe of Spain.
Fishing Schooner On New England
Coast Lands Orientals.
Providence, R. I., Oct. 11. Eighteen
Chineee were arrested today after the
capture by the United States immigra
tion authorities of the ecboonei yacht
Frolic, for which revenue officers have
been searching along: the New England
coast for the past two weeks, were held
tonight by United States Commissioner
Cross in $1,000 bail each for examina
tion next Wednesday. All the men
declared they had been in the United
States before, bnt that their certificates
had been lost, eome in New York and
others in the fire at San Francisco.
Thia declaration contradicted a state
ment alleged to have been made by
John C. Lehnemann, of Boston, one of
the men arrested for complicity in the
smuggling operations, who says the
traffic has been extensive and effective.
BLOW TO DEMOCRATIC PARTY,
Had Planned Great Send-Off British
St. Petersburg, Oct. 11. What is
described here tonight aa the "ignomini
ous fizzle" of the much heralded viBit
to Mobcow and St. Petersburg of a Biit
ish deputation to present a memorial
of sympathy to the dissolved parlia
ment la another blow to the Constitu
tional Democrats, who were arranging
a reception to the deputation as a bril
liant send-off in the campaign.
Thia proposed visit was extremely
embarrassing to the British ambassa
dor, Sir Arthur Nicholson, in view of
the negotiations for an entente between
Eussia and Great Britain. Pressure
was brought to bear in London to stop
the movement, and it waa decided not
to receive the deputation officially at
the empassy her?. This device ia
thought to have inspired the interview
given out by the British consul at Mob
cow, who declared that the members of
the deputation were not known, and
that the proposed visit waa in bad taste.
Tryine To Hold Together.
Helsingfora, Oct. 11. At today's
session of the Constitutional Democrat
ic convention the committee's renata
tionp reclaiming the Impossibility of
passive resistance waa adopted, 84 ayes
to 44 noes. The minority amendment
lecommending organization for passive
resistance was rejected by 83 ayes to 53
noes. The congress baa shown stt iking
weakness in the party, which ia highly
dangerous in view of the approaching
electoral, campaign, and this in spite
of the influence toward cohesion result'
ing from governmental prosecution.
Snow Over Middle West.
Chicago, Oct. 11. Various points
throughout Ohio report record break
ing weather yesterday. At Zaneaville
the Bnow fell for three hours, and the
remarkable thing about it is that the
snow came before any frost had come
in that vicinity. An inch of snow fell
at Findiay. At Louisville there waa a
light fall of snow, and in the mountain
regions of Kentucky. This breaks all
records for early snowfalls. At South
Send, Ind., four inches of snow fell.

NOBLES FLY COUNTRY.
Stampede of Russian Rich to Refuge
in Free England.
London. Oct. 12. For some time
nast statements have ' been made with
more or less authority to the effect
that some members of the Gear's fam
ily were making secret arrangements to
leave Rasala, should certain eventuall
ties occur, and take refuge in England.
These statements have been regarded
as part of the inevitable rumota to be
expected to ariBe from the state of
affairs in the Muscovite dominions. In
veetiKations by the Publishers' Press
correspondent, however, reveal circum
stances which point to their truth.
Largo quantities of jewels, pictures
and furniture have arrived in this
country from the imperial palaces in
Russia just lately, and havo been
placed in safe storage. A leading
banker told the Publishers' g Press cor
respondent that consignments of prop
erty of enormous value had recently ar
rived there from Russia.
uWe have received packets of jewels,
costly furniture and numbers of pic
tures, the value of each of which runB
well into five Genres." he said. "The
owners are very highly .placed."
The question put point blank us to
whether they belonged to the Roman
offs, the reply waa made that it waa
againet the rules to give such informa
A confirmation of the assertion that
at least two of the grand dukes and
grand duchesses intend to give the ter
rorists a wide berth, and to find an
aeylnm in England, 1b found in the fact
that inquiries for the best estates and
houses in the market are being made
among Weat End eatate and houee
agents by Russian gentlemen, who,
whilo asking for particulars of the most
valuable estates, refuse to give the
names of the people for whom they
CAR BLOCKADE IN THE EAST
Orders for Thousands Are
That Cannot Be Filled.
Chicago, Oct. 12. The congestion of
freight traffic has increased bo fast
within the last few dava that railway
officials fear the? are soon to be face to
fsca with a blockade. Conditions on
the Eastern roads which have not only
to handle the business which they orig
inate but have the crops of the West
pouring in upon them for export, are
naturally the worst, but those on the
Western lines alto are rapidly becom
ing extremely serious.
With the approach of winter the
movement of coal has grown heavier,
aggravating the congested conditions
which already exist, and traffic men
say they do not know what they will do
for cars when the year a enormous crop
of corn ia ready for market, as it will
be now in a short time.
A line belonging to one of the big
Eastern railway systems bad orders for
4,235 care which it could not fill. The
Pennaylvania proposes to give notioa
that for 36 hours it will receive no
consignments from the Pittsburg dis
trict, the object being to get the trscke
partly clear of cara which have accu
mulated on ita linea.

the country last night and today was
the worst in many years.

clinging snow, which fell steadily for
Tonigbt the weather is clear and
cold, and the linea of communication
are being slowly re-established.
Buffalo bore the brunt of the storm.
The damage in this city alone is not (ar
from a quarter of a million dollars, and
two deaths cccurred, which were direct
ly due to the effects of the storm. All
night the telephone and electric light
syBtema were paralyzed. The streets
were littered witb broken wires.
Indians Out On a Big Hunt.
New Westminster, B. 0., Oct. 12.
The Stony Indiana of Alberta bavo

wild game drive along the west line of
the Reeky mountains. The game au
thorities have taken steps to have them
pursued and driven out of the country,
