gravest concern. When Mr. Hleeper,
the American charge d'affaires here,
was told tho contents of an Associated

to verify It through the Htale depart

The Aaioclated Press was Informed
tonight by two reliable eyewitnesses
that Cardenas, which hitherto has been
considered a perfectly peaceful city,
was the scene yesterday of doeultoiy
fighting between police and rural

The only provlnco remaining per

Tho Associated Preee correspondent

that vicinity and that all the email
towns In Hanla Clara province are con

loot trains and eolie tho property of

Trinidad Ie surrounded by Insurgents,
and the government sppesrs powerless
to protect the property of Americans
and other foreigners. Hallway trains
aro held up at will, and passengers
searched. The Cuban Central railroad
has declined to assume responsibility
for the safety of paieengere or freight.

are thousand of mount aln tratla with

IJolie, Idaho, Bept. 8. Ilolse is Oil

siasm. The city gates have been
thrown open and hosts of visitors from
all parte of the West have poured In by
the tralnload to attend the 14th annual
aeselon of the National Irrigation con
green and have a good time. Notwith
standing the big crowd, the biggest
Boise ever saw, the citlxens are happy,
for their congreee bids fair to be the
most successful ever held.
The first day of the congress passed off
according fo schedule. Speeches, nu
merous hut brief, all dealt with the
subject uppermost In the minds of the
people irrigation and home building
In the arid West. President Roose
velt's letter, read by Clifford PInchot,
was the keynote, and the talk of Vice
President Fairbanks followed along the
lines of that letter.
Fairbanks was the star attraction at
the congress, lie was greeted by hun
dreds prior to and after the meetings,
and at the public reception tonight was
tendeied a typical Western welcome.
Ills speech this morning made a decid
ed hit, demonstrating to the congress
that the vice president, like the presi
dent, had given an ear to the demande
ol the people of the West and stands
ready to Ind them a helping hand at

principal promoter of this Idea, but

will auppo-t him. President Ilooaevelt
In hie Irtttr very clearly expresses his
disapproval of the scheme, atatlng in
plain langnage that there muat be no
direct appropriation for the construc

until the present national Irrigation
law has been proven a success and
money invested has been returned to
the Federal treasury.
QREAT FLEET IN REVIEW.
President Roosevelt Sees America's
Oyster Day, Hept. 4. Under skies
that broke brilliantly blue before a
whistling westerly wind which swept
down Long Island sound and blew out
to sea the sullen clouds and tempestu
ous ralne wlhch threatened Immeasura
bly to mar the spectacle, President
Roosevelt yesterday, within hailing
dlstanco of his summer home, reviewed
the most magnificent naval fleet ever
assembled under the American flag.
Forty-five of the most splendid types of
fighting vessels afloat lay at anchor in
three long columns as the naval yacht
Mayflower, which Just a year ago wa
written into history as the meeting
ground of Hussla and Japan, paeeed up
and down the lines, the president an
applauding spectator on the bridge.
The Mayflower's journey was made
amid a continuous boom of saluting
cannons, and gun alfer gun spoke the
navy's honor to the commander In chlttf
ol all America's military forces.
Tho 45 vessols ate all within range
of Bagamore and could train 1,178 guns
on the summer residence of the preal
dent. Indeed, they roared out to him
a tremendous salute as he came among
them on the Mayflower and last night
they painted tho hieroglyphics of peaco

Havana, Bept. 4. -The Cuban Cen
tral Railway company today made pub
lic announcement that It would no
longer accopt freight or merchandise
for transfer over Its lines except at own
er's risk, It Is stated that this la nee
eseary because nearly all of Its trains
are hold up and tholr cargoes Inspected
by armed bands of Insurgents. Late
tonight tho government learnod that
400 Inaurgonta had entered the town
of Oalabaxar, In Hanta Clara province,
had confiscated a quantity of arms and
taken many head of hotsos.
No Hope for the Sheridan.
Washington, Sept. 4, Dispatches re
celvod today at the War department
from Honolulu Indicate that the trans.
port Hherldan cannot be saved, She is
nearly filled with water and her engines
re flooded and useless.
TRANSPORT ON THE ROCKS,
Sheridan In Perilous Plight on Coast
of Hawaiian Islands.
Honolulu, Hept. 3. Hanging on a
rock amidships, the United Htales
transport Hherldan la ashore on liar
ber's point, the southwestern extremity
of the island of Oahu, on which stands
Honolulu. Her position Is alarming,
as she rests on a sharp coral reef with
wild surf dashing on tho shore and ren
dering it well nigh impossible to land
a boat, as there is no beach.
Tho Shbrldan struck at 4 a. m,, and
promptly blew her whistles, but did
not get Into communication with the
shore ontll the wireless telegraph sta
tion at Harbor's point was opened In
the morning. She lies broadside to
the shore, and Is rolling noticeably.
All morning boats were vainly trying
to find a landing place, but at last the
second officer got ashore and saved his
boat's crew, though the boat Itself was
swamped in the breakers, He denies
a report that the machinery broke down
before the ateamer grounded. Natives
reached the vessel through the surf In
Tbe Hherldan haa aboard 125 through
passengers and 50 soldiers, and their
transfer to the shore or to other craft
is a serious problem. Captain Peabody
haa signalled the ateamer Claudlno to
take them to Honolulu. If poealle, the
transfer will be made at onco, the reve
nue cutter Manning assisting.
Captain Peabody says that, if power
la applied soon, he believes the Hherl
dan can be saved, but otherwise there
is little hope. The swell Is yerj heavy
and the coral reefs are very sharp.
Good order Is maintained on board the
veaael. The Sheridan's engines are be
ing tepalred and coal Is being rapidly
thrown overboard with a view to try
ing to float her at high tide. Tbe tog
Fearless and several Inter-Island steam
ers have gone to her asrlstance.
Captain Peabody I reported to have
assumed all the responsibility for the
accident, saying that tbe vessel was in
CONTRACTS FOR NEW ROAD.
St. Paul Ready for Construction to
Spokane, Sept. 3, Contracts for the
building of the Chicago, Milwaukee &
St. Paul road from the Bittor Root
mountains to the Columbia river have
been let to H. C. Henry, of Seattle.
The route follows down the St. Jo

From Lind the line will practically

pay $2.50 a day. Our work is to be
done a year ftom next January."

Victoria, Hept. 3. Tbe ateamer Tar
tar, of the Canadian Pacific railway
company, which arrived today from the
Orient, brought newa that tho Japan

Btates, and also Shanghai, Dalny and
Vladivostok lines of steamers in its
general scheme to develop Manchurlan

nection will bo done by a lino between

rect line is not definitely stated.
Palma and Capote Quarrel.
Havana, Sept. 3. Rumor is busy
with suggestions of conspiracy among
the police and an open quarrel between
President Palma and Vice President
Mendes Capote. Both reports lack
definite confirmation. In certain quar
ters Capote Is suspected of bargaining
with the insurgents, In the repotted
quarrel at tbe palace bitter words are
said to have passed, culminating In
Palma denouncing Capote as a traitor.
The vice prealdent is eald to have re
plied that Palma was a ptesldent with
St. Petersburg, Sept. 3. By the end
of September the famine will have

The recognized formula for bordeaux

one of brass.
Spraying should be started wben tbe
potato plants are six Inches high and
be repeated every ten days or two
weeks, according to tho weather,
throughout the growing season. If bugs
are to be destroyed, add one pound of
