The Leaders Are Gathering at
Harrisbarg Air Filled
with Rumors,
WANAMAKER MEN OPEN SHOP
f. Blankenburg Is Hopeful and
Frank Willing Leach Predicts Many
Startling Developments "Jack"
Robinson- Opens .Headquarters.
The Struggle May Last Seyera
Days Interesting Sessions
Be Expected.
Ilarrlsburg, Pa., Jan. 1. There Is
practically no change In the senatorial
situation here, except In the increased
numbers und the opening of the Wana
maker headquarters.
There have been rumors all day of
probable arrests In connection with
bribery, but up to midnight there has
been no move by either side In the con
test. Frank "Willing Ijoaeh arrived to
night from Philadelphia and It was
whispered about that he would be ar
rested at once. If there was an inten
tion to do so it was abandoned as Mr.
Leach proceeded at once to the Wana
inaker headquarters and remained
there during the evening. lie was in
terviewed tonight and said among
other things that the movement against
Senator Quay und that which he rep
resents would go on without regard to
the result of the senatorial light. He
denied emphatically that any money
had been used In the AVanamnker cam
paign Illegitimately. He referred to
past Quay campaigns In which he had
taken part and said that Senator Quay
would bear him out In the statement
that not a dollar was spent In any way
that was nut legitimate. Ho said that
business men understand that it takes
money to meet the legitimate expenses
of a political campaign. Mr. Leach
thinks there Is no doubt of Mr. "Wana
maker's success.
HLANKENBUKG HOPEFUL.
Rudolph Blankenberg, who has charge
of the Business Men's League, said to
night that they bad made such unex
pected gains as would soon reverse
Senator Quay's figures of one hundred
and llfty for Penrose to GT for Wana
'maker. He said Mr. "Wanamaker's
election today Is simply a question of
majority. The Penrose managers nro
just as confident and declare Senator
Quay's estimate of 150 votes for Penrose
will bo vorilled when the caucus meets
next week. It Is probable that the cau
cus will be held on Tuesday night.
Tonight Beiresentatlves Patterson,
cf Cambria, and Martin, of Mercer,
declared for "Wannmnker.
Itepresentative "Waul 11. Bliss, of Del
aware, is hero and announces that he
will vote for Congressman "Jack" Kob
inson. Robinson's headquaiters will be
opened tomorrow.
The hotels are lining up and the poli
ticians on both sides are at work. It
was reported tonight that Senator Quay
would be arrested, but this rumor, like
that concerning Leach, seems to lack
foundation.

CUBAN REFORMS
PROPOSED BY SPAIN
Limited Suffrage Will Be Permitted on
ths Island.
WERE RETARDED BY INSURRECTION
The Reforms Contemplated by the
Spanish Government Arc Largely
Those Which Were Kmhodied in the
Decree of 1805, hut Have Not Keen
Put in Force on Account of the
Insurrection.
Washington, Jan. 1. The effect of
the reforms proposed by the Spanish
government for Porto Rico, when ex
tended to Cuba, as is proposed when
the Insurrection has been brought un
der further control, will be to create
three series of administrative bodies In
the Island, Independent of the represen
tatives of Cuba In the Spanish cortes.
The voters, under a system of limited
suffrage, are already permitted to
chooso the boards of aldermen of
municipalities, and the mayors are to
lie chosen from these boards by vote of
their members. The next body In rank
Is the provincial assembly, of which
there Is only one in Porto Rico, but one
for eacli of the provinces of Cuba. The
functions of the provincial assembly
are largely united with those of the
proposed council of administration in
the case of Porto Rico, because there
is but one body. The council of admin
istration will be an Independent body
in Cuba, and will for the first time give
the Cubans a Inrge share of control
over their internal domestic concerns.
The home government will retain con
trol of the laws levying taxation and
will reserve the right to review the
budget of appropriations, but the ap
propriations will be made by the coun
cil of administration, subject to the ap
proval of the ministry at Madrid.
The Spanish government does not
propose at present to widen the limits
of the suffrage, which extends to per
sons paying a combined tax of live
dollars and to several of the learned
professions. The reforms in contemtr
latlon for Cuba are largely those which
were embodied In the decree of March
15, 1S93, but which have not been put
in force because of the insurrection.
Changes which have been proposed In
this law will require to be submitted to
the cortes at their spring meeting, but
It is not doubted that the plans pro
posed by the ministry will be accepted.

CLEARANCE UNDER PROTEST.
Steamer Commodore Leaves Jackson
ville witli a Cargo of Arms.
Jacksonville, FlajJaji. ;'. The steam
er Commodore, commanded by Captain
Edward Murphy, formerly of the
steamship Laurada, was granted clear
ance papers yesterday by the collector
of customs and left port this morning
with a cargo of arms and ammunition
for Clenfuegos, Cuba. Three miles be
low the city she stuck in the mud, and
the revenue cutter Boutwell, passing
down the river, pulled her off und es
corted her safely across the bar.
The arms were loaded openly at the
railroad wharf and no attempt was
made to prevent any one seeing what
was going on. The cargo was shipped
by H. P. Frltot, of this city, and was
consigned to S. Cisneros, president of
the Cuban republic. Spanish Vice Con
sul Potous refused to vise the clearanco
papers on the ground that arms could
not be shipped to a Cuban port with
out permission of the governor general.
He filed a formal protest with tho col
lector against the vessel being allowed
to depart. The protest was illed by the
collector, and the vessel was allowed to
depart, as clearance had been granted.
The Commodore carried a crew of
twenty-eight men," twenty thousand
cartridges, 175 lilies, 1,000 pounds of
giant powder and other munitions of
war, besides a quantity of medicine and
stores. The Dauntless has not yet re
turned to load with the cargo of muni
tions of war, although permission has
been Granted her to clear from Nue
vltas, Cuba, with arms and ammuni
tion. Nothing has been heard of her
since she left heie Tuesday afternoon
to do wrecking, as her owner says.
The sudden departure of tho cruiser
Raleigh, from Key West at o'clock
yesterday morning, has caused consld
edable uneasiness In Cuban circles, for
it Is believed that she has been ordered
to stop the Dauntless and Commodore
and search them to ascertain if they
are violating the law by carrying a
body of men as well as a cargo of arms.
If the men are found on either steamer
the vessel will be seized and brought
back to port,
The Three Friends returned to port
yesterday and is In charge of the col
lector of customs. Her crew came
ashore Immediately and disappeared.
None of them would talk.

MEN OF PROMINENCE.
MAXIMO
TO REVIVE THE STEEL POOL.
Special Committee Appointed to For
mulate Plans Mill Report.
Pittsburg, Pa., Jan. 1. The speclnl
committee appointed at the last meet
ing of the American Bessemer associa
tion to figure out a plan by which the
defunct pool may be again plnced on its
feet as the great dictator of prices la
the Iron and steel world, has completed
Its report, which will be presented at
a meeting of members to be held Mon
day next, probably In Pittsburg, but
possibly In New York. The Identity
of the committee Is not known. The
report piepared by them will, how
over, astonish the iron and steel world
beyond ti doubt. The plan Is that the
larger concerns will buy up the allot
ment of the other and smaller mills and
pay the owners to turn the keys In the
doors and practically retire from the
billet manufacturing business, with the
exception of pocketing the dividends
that they will receive from the con
cerns that will make the billets for the
whole country.
In this respect the billet pool will
emulate the methods of the nail pool,
but with more hopes of success. The
consummation of the project means
that the trade in billets and finished
products would be confined to the
larger producers, or a concentration of
production placed In the hands of a few
large firms who will then control pro
duction, set the price and share with
the Idle mill owner.
