Pittsburg, Pa., Oct. 19.—Bishop
Joseph C. Hartzell, of the Methodist
Episcopal church, whose bishopric is
in Africa and who is attending the
meeting in this city of the Phi Gamma
Delta fraternity, stated tonight that he
had been commissioned by the negro
republic of Liberia to go to Washing­
ton and ask that the republic be taken
under the sheltering wing of the United
States. Threatened inroads upon its
territory by the Germans, French and
English prompted the government to
seek the shadow of the Stars and Stripes.

Hay,” lie said, “as the special repre­
sentative of the republic of Liberia, to
secure a protectorate, either quasi or
actual. What they want America to
do is to say to the European powers in
Africa: ‘We have an interest in Li­
beria; this country belongs to us.’
"Whether the actual protectorate
can be established or not will depend
upon how far the Liberian government
is willing to go, assuming that the
United States answers favorably.”

Fate of a Young
Florence, Colo.
Denver, Oct. 19.—A special to the
Rocky Mountain News from Florence,
Colo , says: On Saturday William Lel-
lin and his 10-year-old boy came to
Florence, from their homo, six miles
from Florence, to do some trading.
After spending the day about town, nt
6 P. M. tliey started home in their
wagon. It was raining when thev left
town, but when out about five miles
the rain turned to a blinding enow
storm. The father lost his way, and
wandered about among scrub pines and
in the hi Us all night. The wagon and
team was abandoned, and an effort was
made to reach home on foot.
As the night wore on the little fel­
low became cold and numband froze tc
death in his father's arms. The fatlrei
managed to keep alive by walking, un­
til he could walk no more from numb­
ness of limb. Daylight broke, and Lei-
lin knew he was not far from home,
but was unable to walk. At 9 o’clock
his cries were heard by his wife, whe
went to his rescue. Neighbors were
summoned and the old gentleman was
assisted to his home, but he was so neat
dead that he could not give an intelli­
gent account of the night’s wander­
ings, but the dead body of tlie boy told
a pitiful story of a lack of sufficient
clothing to keep him warm. He wore
knee pants and a small coat, but no un­
derwear nor outer coat. His shoes and
stockings were almost completely worn

I abject obtainable by the persistent
i efforts of the Spanish commissioners to

longer, as the United States would
neither assume nor guarantee any part
of the debt.
“The Spaniards replied that this
placed Spain in a position of repudiat­
ing or of reducing the face of the Cuban
bonds from 50 to 60 per cent, paying
only half tho stipulated interest on
reduced value.
Before they would

"Judge Day responded that the sur­
render of the Philippines would proba­
bly be demanded, irrespective of the
Cuban or any other debt.
“This, to the Spaniards, the first in­
timation of the intentions of the Unit­
ed States as to the Philippines, resulted
in a whispered conference, followed by
a request .or an adjournment in order
to communicate with Madrid. Judge
Day said that President McKinley had
instructed him to demand the entire
surrender of Porto Rico, and the deliv­
ery of every town to the United States
officers before midnight, together with
the evacuation of Havana on or before
November 1, when the United States
would be at the gates of the city ready
to take possession.

American. Positively Decline to As­
suma lte.pon.ibllity for the Cuban
Debt—Two Week'» Labor».
Paris. Oct. 18.—The American and
Spanish peace commissions closed their
first two weeks of labor here today,
and the progress made has been chiefly
by negative action, owing to the atti­
tude of the Americans.
The first article of the protocol pro­
vided that "Spain will relinquish ail
claim to sovereignty over and title to
Cuba.” Tlie Americans opened their
case by the assumption that littlo or no
action was necessary regarding Cuba on
the ground that its disposition was
definitely fixed by the terms of the pro­
tocol. Notwithstanding at the meeting
last Thursday, the Spaniards submit­
amounting to holding that the United
States should take over all or part ol
the Cuban debt. Tuesday, Senor Mon­
tero Rios, president of the Spanish com­
mission, verbally repeated it at length,
and reiterated the same in summarized
The Americans at their own session,
Wednesday, took up the Spanish pres­
entation and determined the formula­
tion of the answer of the United States.
Careful, exact, and full was the prepara­
tion of the answer, and, therefore, it
became impossible, as intended, tc
serve a copy of it on tlie Spanish before
I the hour of opening the session, so that
! the oral discussion might begin
Whatever may have transpired at yes­
terday’s session, whether the Spaniards
were or were not advised that tlie
United States declined to assume the
Cuban debt, it may be distinctly said
that with such light as it now has. the
, United States commission will consist­
ently and to the end refuse to assume
all or any part of the Cuban debt. The
Spaniards will, if indeed it has not al­
ready been done, have impressed upon
them the fact that by the signature of
the protocol, they utterly relinquished
all claim of sovereignty over and title
to Cuba.
Thus possibly progress has been
achieved negatively, for, with the pres­
ent light, the Americans decline, ot
will refuse the responsibility of a single
peseta of the so-called debt.

The latest advices from Falmouth
this evening say that 88 bodies have
been identified, mostly tlie bodies of
sailors. Four are as yet unidentified,
including those of two elderly ladies.
One appears to be German. She wore
a watch and wedding ring, both en­
graved “1871.” The other wore a sil­
ver brooch with the letters “D” in
pearls. This is probably the body of
Mrs. Charles Duncan. Nine of the bod­
ies have been brought to Falmouth;
the others were taken to the village
church at St. Keverine.
The rescued passengers are being
sheltered in cottages along the shore,
and the crew at the sailors’ home at
Tugs have been cruising in the vicin­
ity all day. despite the very rough
weather, in the hope of picking up
other bodies.
The cause of the disaster remains the
profoundest mystery.
