Havana, Bept. 18. The only results
thus far of President Palrna's order for
tho suspension ol hostilities have been
that Liberal leaders who hitherto have
had every reason for anticipating arrest
aru circulating openly In Havana again
and even conferring with members ol
the government with regard to peace,
and that such Insurgents In the Held as

All accounts agree that there easily
are 3,000 insurgents a few miles south
east of Havana, and rumors are In cir
culation that they will enter the city
peaceably If they nre not molested, but
that they will fight if they meet with
resistance. All visitors to Insurgent

this Impression, hut It Is believed no
attempt will be mado against Havana
until thn arrival of Pino Ouerrera'a

to be from SO to 40 miles distant. The

NOTHING FOR JETTY.
Congross Not Likely to Make Appro
priation nt Next Session.
l'jrtlnnd, Bept. 17. That tho 2,
600,000 nteded for completion of the
Columbia bar Jetty cannot he seen red
next year from congress Is tho opinion
of Congressman Itansdell, of Louisiana,
and Jones, of Washington, members of
thn livers nnd harbors committee, who
have just Inspected the jetty, escorted
by members of the chambers of com
rnerco of Portland nnd Astoria, mem'
bora of the Oregon delegation in con
gross, Governor Chamberlain, Lieuten
ant Colonel Roessler, who Is United
States engineer of this district, and
That it Is Inadvisablo to resume work
on the jetty until this sum shall be
available, either as an appropriation or
under continuing contract, If viry
wnstelul construction is to be avoided,
wns tho opinion ol the two committee
members, who accorded with the view
of Colonel Roessler announced before a
meeting of the Chamber ol Commerce of
Portland Friday night. Colonel Rorss-
ler advised further that money should
not bo diverted from the bar project,
by inslstencj on sums of money for
other improvements on the river, lar
ger thnn nre necessary for maintenance
of present work and Blow construction.
This plan is opposed by Representa
tive Jones, who rather considers the
Celilo project mors important than tho
bar project, at least to the upper Co
lumbia river region, watch wants lower
transportation rales to and from tide
water. He takes the view that the Ce
lllo barrier, which now prevents navi
gation up and down thn river, should
be opened as soon as possible, and inai
the bar Improvement Is not as urgent
as la alleged, because ships of 23 and
moro feet draft can already pass in and
This opinion is shared by Mi. Itans
dell, nnd he urges that tho two projects
be striven for together, saying that
otherwise, there will be a divided
effort, which will rct against the in
terests of the entire river.
Mr. Jones and Mr. Itansdell said that
It Is extemely unlikely that the Jetty
can obtain (2 600,000, or that even tho
whole Columbia river can secure such
a sum. Uoth were even fearful that
there will bo no river and harbor bill
at all next year.
It will bo impossible, they said, to
put through an emergeniy approprla
tlon, as was done at the last session of
congiess for (400,000, because that sum
was allowed simply in order that the
government might not lose several hun
dred thousand dollars' worth of con
struction works at tho Jetty, for want
of money to finish tho stone deposits
under tho tramway then in place.
It was not the most cheerful outlook
for tho river Interejte that were repre
sented In the party. Its merrbera be
gan bnsylng their heads with devices
for obtaining the required (2,600,000
right away, because, In their minds,

TREPOFF IS DEAD.
Tyrant of Russian People Succumbs
to Heart Disease.
St. Petersburg, Boot. 17. General
Dmitri Feodorovltch Trepoff, command
ant of tho Imperial palace, died at (i
o'clock Saturday evening in his villa at
Peterhof of angina pectoris.
General Trepoff, whose namo is in
delibly linked with reactionary repres
sion In Russia, was u remarkable mau.
He was a natural despot, a try ant by
inclination, education and conviction,
lie was one of those men who have con
stantly appeared in Russian history,
Just at the time when conditions wero
most promising for putting an end to
despotism, to turn the Russian rulers
from liberalism to reaction.
It was he who became the guiding
spirit of the reaction alter Nicholas II
had Issued Ills manifesto In the fall of
1006, promising tho pople a share In
tho government. Holding the position
of master of the palace, in league with
tho court intriguers who were deter
mined to restore the old regime, he
constantly had the emperor's ear.
Dawson City Is Excited.
Winnipeg, Sept. 17. Advlcea from
Dawson City Bay thofo is more excite

Plotters' Nest In Peterhof.
Bt. Petersburg, Bept. 17. The police
hnvo arreBted 14 revolutionists In Pe
terhof, inoludlng eeveral students. The
fact that one of the men arrested was a
court lackey caused a rumor that a plot
against the emperor had been discov
ered, but there Is no definite Informa
tion to this end.
