U. S. MARINES DUE TO ARRIVE
AT "BLACK REPUBLIC" TODAY
Washington, Oct. 30- Nine hun
dred American marines -were due to
arrive today on board the transport
Hancock at Port au Prince, Hayti,
rushed there 1iy-ne.ws of new develop
ments in the revolution in the "black
republic." Their hasty dispatch from
Santo Domingo was sought by the
atate department whe'n advices were
received that the insurgent general,
Davilmar Theodore, had ousted and
forced abdication of President
Zamor.
Officials were not surprised at the
news of the overthrow of the Zamor
government. The revolution which
he began a couple of months ago has
been simmering after a sharp clash
recently, which caused this govern
ment to threaten to intervene with
armed forces.
A detachment of marines from the
cruiser Tacoma is now guarding the
United StateB officials at Port au
Prince- The Tacoma is lying in the
harbor with her guns trained on the
town.
The battleship Nebraska is also
rushing at high speed today from
Vera Cruz to Port au Prince, under
orders given late yesterday when the
revolution situation became more
threatening.
Officials said today that the ma
rines on the Hancock and Nebraska
would probably not be landed if
Theodore's occupation of Port au
Prince is peaceful. They will be held
on b.oard their respective vessels until
developments.

MARGARET HALEY DISCUSSES
COAL TRUST IN POLITICS
The coal trust in politics was dis
cussed by Margaret Haley at the
Stewart school, Kenmore and Wilson
avs., yesterday. It was a special meet
of North Side members of the Chi
cago Teachers' Federation. Miss
Haley said:
"Unless the voters take away con
trol of the board of review from the
coal company that has dominated it
16 years, there will be little chance
for more tax money out of which to
make a better school system.
"Towner K. Webster is one can
didate for the board of review we are
sure is not a coal man. We know he
will not throw the tax office open
for deals with loop skyscrapers to
have low taxes in exchange for coal
contracts.
"Mr. Webster is president of the
Webster Manufacturing Co. He was
chosen in 1908 as the umpire of the
board that arbitrated the dispute be
tween the newspaper publishers and
the printers' union. No man in th(,,
United States has been more in th
lead for workmen's compensation,
laws."
