of an organization to be called tho
Good Government league of Cuba were
begun this aftornoon at a meeting of
Americans, Cubans and others, at
which resolutions were passed to tho
effect that the purpose of the aisocia-

tnent, competent to administer Justice,
insure democratic tranquility, promote
the general welfare and insure tho

tants of the island-"
It was declared that tho league in
tended to adopt whatovor means to this
end were deemed wisect by a majority
of the membership, which is intended
to bo representatives of all nationalities
and cectlons, and not to be committed
to any lino of action until it is decided
what is lnoit conductive to the objects
While there was no expression to
that effect, the movement uenorally Is
regarded as pointing eventually toward
some more definite degreo of American
control or oversight in Cnban affairs

Washington, Oot. 9. It has been
finally decided tbat the Panama canal
will be completed by contract. In a
few days the commission will make
public a statement setting forth Its rea
sons for favoring the contract system,
and at tbat time a form of contract will
also probably be published showing ex
actly the sort of documert believed by
tho commissioners to be necessary for
safeguarding the work.
President Roosevelt is known to sup
port the commission in its position that
the work can bo done more satisfactori
ly by contractors than by the govern
ment. Ho had a long conference with
Chairman Sbonts today on tho subject
and the various arguments in favor of
tho contract system were discussed

Not Sufficient Evidence to Hold Great
Grand Junction, Colo., Oct. 8 Vin
cent St. John, ex-president of tbe Tell
uride MinerB union and prominently
identified with the Western Federation
of Miners, is attain a free man, all
charges against him having been dtop
ped by tbe state.
"We wore unable to verify certain
evidence against St. John, and rather
than ko to trial with a weak case we
decided to abandon further prosecu
tlon," is the way District Attorney
Sells put it. District Judge Stevens
promptly ordered St. John released.
St. John had been out on bonds un
der the charge of beine responsible for
the strike riot of 1900 at Telluride,
when a man named fiurnbam was kill
ed. St. John, after leaving Telluride,
went to Idaho. He was arrested for
complicity in tbe assassination of ex
Govetnor Steunenbertr. of Idaho, but
later released and immediately re-ar
rested, charged with tbe murder of
Burnbam in Telluride, and brought to
Colorado. He was placed in Jail and a
strong guard thrown around tbe Jail to
prevent what wm alleged to be an at
tempt to rescue him.
Three weeks later tbe evidence did
not apppcar to bo so strong and he Wis
released on a $10,000 bond. His case
dracced nlomr until at this term of
court the prosecuting attornoy announc
ed tbat be bad not evidence upon which
to hold him, and be was released.
LOSES MILLIONS ANNUALLY.
BRITAIN ACCEPTS TERMS.
Real Fishermen of Newfoundland Con
cede American Rights.
Washington, Oct. 9. Tbe nows that
tho modus vivendi between the United
States and Great Britain regarding the
Newfoundland fisheries bad finally been
signed waB conveyed to Secretary Root
in a cablegram from Ambassador Reld
today, advising him tbat the British
government bad accepted tbe terms.
No information has been received at
tho State department concerning tbo
proposed resignation of tbe officials of
the Newfoundland government on ac
count of tbe new agreement.
Some facts in relation to the New
foundland government and the fisheries
were stated, in which it appears tbat
the British government has been very
much embarrassed during tbe negotia
tions on account of the demands of
Newfoundland. The Newfoundland
government is under tbe control of the
merchant fishermen of the island, those
who buy, cure and Bell the fishing pro
ducts. Tbey oppose any American
fiahinR rightB, including those guaran
teed by the treaty of 1418, and are dis
satisfied with any arrangement that the
British governmont makes to carry out
tho terms of that treaty.
Tho real fishermen of the island are
not in harmony with the restrictions of
tho Newfoundland government, euch as
denying tbe privilege of Belling bait
and of allowing the fishermen to tako
employment on the American fishing
vessels. The Newfoundland govern
ment baa no real responsibility in the
way of carrying out obligations. That
devolves upon tho British government.
Joint Salmon Fishery Regulations.
Victoria, B. C, Oct. 9. An Ottawa
dispatch says recommendations for
amendments to the fishery regulations
have been made by the Joint fishery
commission of British Columbia and
Washington. The Americans askrd
that fishing bo prohibited in the Fraser
river above New Westminster, but the
Canadian commission did not agree to
this. The American commissioners
will recommend to the Washington leg

objeot of protecting certain salmon
