speeches had been delivered, not to

In spite of the announcement of an
armistice and the feverish activity of
the preaent Government and the in
surgents alike to arrive at a basis of
peace before the arrival here of the
United Slates envoys, there was
heavy fighting In Santiago province
yesterday. A telegram says that 400
rnraies were engaged with an un
known number of rebels and that the
result was not reported at the time
of sending the message.
Washington, Sept. 18. Washing
ton official circles are not so hopeful
today as they were yesterday of the
successful mission of Secretary Taft
and Asslstnit Secretary Bacon to
Havana. Two things have transpired
which have led to serious misgivings.
One was the cutting of the Clenfue
gos cable to Bermuda and the other
a great explosion In Havana, caus
ing several deaths.
Officials point out that these two
manifestations In different parts of
the Island indicate a desperation
which auggests the possibility of
reign of terror. Nothing would so
soon force armed intervention as a
series of outrages in Havana and a
few such performances as the ctfttlng

a proclamation giving the Liberal In

against the Palma Government. This
"In the first place, this movement
must not be confounded with the in
ternecine strife that so often disturbs
the peace of the republics of South
and Central America. In the latter
movements the one object of the
leader is to gain control of the Presi
dency. With us It is not so.
"We have been careful not to over
draw tBe seriousness of the political
situation In Cuba, and have made no
charges that cannot be fully sub
stantiated by unbiased Investigators.
"We charge that President Palma
obtained his office through fraud and
Intimidation and by the denial to the
Liberals of their right of suffrage.
"We charge that the government
of President Palma was directly re
sponsible for the killing of Colonel
Enrique Vlulluendas, a member of
the Houbo of Representatives, at
Clenfuegos, on September 22, 1905.
"We charge that President Palma
has usurped the power aud functions
of the governing bodies of the mu
nicipalities and has annulled, arbi
trarily and without warrant of law,
the elections of Liberal officials, dlu
placing them with members of hit
own political party, the Moderates.
"We charge that he has in Ilka

made continued peaceful appeals that
this Injustice be righted, but to all
these the Government turned a deal

morning. "She was suffering from a
self-inflicted wound. I called in her
parents and operated upon her at my
office to save her life. The infection
was too great, however) and I wot
unable to save her. She will prob

court an Inquiry."
The case was reported to the au

Misbranding of Domestic Food Staffs
Will Apply Equally to Imported
New York. Sept. 18. Just what
effect the new pure food law will
have on the importers and domestio
manufacturers of focd products, will
be the object of hearings to be held
In the rooms of the Board of Trade

RUN DOWN BY ACTO.
Elmhui-Ht Mechanic Left Unconscious
on the Road.
Oakland, Sept. 18. A large auto
mobile, containing four men, who
were evidently bent on having a good
time, and running at a high rate of
speed, ran down C. Figonl, a machin
ist, on the San Leandro road last
night, and so injured the victim that
he may die.
Whether Figonl was simply maimed
for life or was killed did not appear
to cause the automoblllsts any worry,
for the chauffeur kept right on in a
wild flight, going towards Oakland.
Unconscious, bleeding and with
one leg and arm broken, besides In
ternal injuries, Figonl was later
found In the roadway by a crew of a
Haywards electric car. He was first
taken to the power-house at Elm
hurst, where Dr. J. Hamilton tempor
arily treated the wounds and was
later removed to his home at Elm
hurst. The physician regards the in
