WILL NOT BE
Upheaval in France Unlikely
Taking Up of the Porto Rican and La
drone Islands Questions Likely to
Cause the Interposition of Numer
ous Hair-Splitting Objections by
Wash ingtox, Oct. 26. Some appre
hensions have been manifested in cer
tain quarters as to the possible adverse
effect upon the peace commission in
Paris of the upheaval in France. It has
been suggested that the Spanish cause
is in such shape that the Spanish gov
ernment has nothing to loose and every
thing to gain by any change that may
be brought about. However, it may be
stated that in the opinion of officials of
the state department there is little dan
ger of the situation at Paris becoming
so acute as to justify v abandonment of
the work ot the commission. , It is con
fidentially believed that with a change
of cabinet in France the present disor
der will subside and normal conditions
be restored. It is always possible that
the Spanish commissioners, in despair
over their failure to force the Cuban
debt upon the United States in any
shape, but this is not regarded as prob
able, may break off the sossion.
It is expected that when the commis
sioners take up the subjects of Porto
Rico and coaling stations in the Lad rone
islands, there will be many hair-splitting
objections interposed by the Spanish
No one knows officially just what the
extent of the United States' claim will
be as to the Philippines. Admiral Dew
ey has a much higher opinion of the
Filipino people and their capacity for
self-government than is generally sup
pose!?. He has represented to the
American commissioners that the Phil
ippines of the northern groupj are in
habited by a people, as a rule, intelli
gent, practical and far better qaalified
for self-government than the people of
Cuba. But he made no recommenda
tion as to what should constitute the
maximum or minimum demands of the
Americans, and their demands therefore
are likely to be based upon original in
structions qualified by any change of
opinion the president may have exper
ienced as a result of his Western trip.
New York, Oct. 26. A dispatch to
the World from Paris says ;
The Spanish commissioners have been
instructed to delay as much as possible
their acquiescence in the refusal of the
Americans to accept any part of Spain's
Cuban debt, but to do nothing to give
, the Americans cause for breaking off the
Snow, Rain and High Winds Sweep the
States From the Great Lakes to
'Chicago, Oct. 26 A wintry storm
which was central over the southern end
of Lake Michigan has prevailed tbroueh
oat the Middle Western states during
the past twenty-four hours. To the
west of Chicago snow fell to the depth
of from two to eight inches, and here
and to the east there was a heavy rain,
which changed to a heavy wet snow at
A high gale from the northeast whipped
the snow into a racing blizzard at many
points. Telegraph wires were blown
down at some places and the telephone
service demoralized. Deep drifts, which
interruped street-car traffic-and threat
ened to impede railroad trains and para
lyze business placed some of the smaller
cities in the icy grip of winter. Such
severity of weather was entirely un
expected so early, and has brought suf
fering to stock.
At several points oh the lakes vessels
were reported in distress and the crews
had narrow escapes from drowning. In
Chicago harbor alone twenty-five vessels
put in for safety.
At Springfield, Illinois, and Spring
field, Missouri, the temperature dropped
28 degrees during the afternoon ; at
Davenport it dropped 26 degrees and at
Dubuque, Iowa, and Chicago 25 degrees.
The lowest temperature at these places
was as follows: Dubuque, SO degrees;
Springfield, Illinoie, 32; Springfield,
Missouri, 22; Davenport, 32; Chicago,
37 ; Abilene, 52".

New York, Oct. 26. A dispatch to

of an interim minister under Veja de
