TO FAVOR PATRIOTS
Brazil Will Very Soon
Recognize Cubans as
TAKES THE INITIATIVE.
No Longer to Wait for Action
Upon the Part of the
engagements with spanish.
In Several Important Battles
the Insurgents Were Badly
BOSTON, Mass., Oct. IT.— At last the
initiative has been taken in the recogni
tion of the Cuban insurgents. A dispatch
to a morning paper states authoritatively
that within the week the Government of
Brazil will issue a proclamation an
nouncing this intention. This statement
is given out by a member very high in the
Brazilian Government, and there can be
no doubt as to its import.
For some time past Brazil has been
trying to secure the co-operation of the
United States in jointly recognizing the
struggling patriots, but as ncr efforts
have been unsuccessful she resolved to go
ahead on her own responsibility. At a
special meeting of the Cabinet, which was
held on the 14th, the members composing
it unanimously agreed to support the
Government in any such action.
The Spanish Minister at Rio Janeiro has
made the strongest protest against any
snob action, but without avail. He has
communicated with the home Govern
ment and it is expected that be will be re
called at any moment. The special meet
ing of the Cabinet which has been called
for the 23d last, is thought to be for the
express purpose of putting the question
before the Government, so that the recog
nition cf the insurgents may take place
before the end of the month.
Dispatches from Santiago de Cuba re
ceived to-day dated the 14th bring intelli
gence of two large battles fought on the
11th and 12th near Sabinica. The in
surgents had established their field head
quarters in the mountain passes to the east
of the River Cantos.
They numbered' nearly 2000 men, under
General Maceo. On the afternoon of the
lltti a large Spanish force, under General
Navarro, from Santiago de Cuba, made an
advance on the rebel lines and were re
pulsed with heavy slaughter, 300 men be
ing lost in the skirmish. On the 12th they
were re-enforced by two regiments of
Grntas,frorn the garrison at Dos Caminos,
and once more made an attack on the in
The Spanish troops had with them a
field batterj-, which created havoc among
the insurgents, forcing them to retreat.
The entire field hospital and a large quan
tity of stores fell into the hands of the
regulars. The rebel loss was unknown,
but it must have been very heavy. The
Spanish lost 250 men.
On the 14th a small body of rebels were
overtaken by a superior body of Spanish
cavalry near Puerto Principe. Daring the
day both sides received re-enforcements,
resulting in a pitched battle. The rebels
were defeated, their loss being light. The
Spanish loss was about 200 men. General
Navarro claims that the whole of the in
sunrents in the eastern part of the island
are practically defeated and that they can
not hold out much longer. In spite of this
fact, preparations are being made for an
extensive fall campaign.
MADRID, Spain, Oct. 17.- Queen Isaabel
11, now in Paris, has sent the following
cablegram to General Martinez Campos, in
reply to a cablegram sent her on her birth
day: "More than ever I thank you for
your kind congratulations. You know that
my heart accompanies you. I ask God to
protect you and give you victory. Ever
your sincere and grateful friend, Isabel."
On the 30th inst. the Duke of Tamames
sails for Cuba. One report says that he
will take command of a regiment of vol
unteers. Another that he goes on an im
portant political mission.
Several Cabinet meetings have been held
at the residence of the Premier, Senor
Canovas del Castillo. They were devoted
to the Cuban question.
It is announced that 12,000 troops will
start for Cuba October 22.
FL4GS POR THE POPE.
Old (jlory WUI Soon Be Displayed at
the I aticau.
NEW YORK, N. V., Oct. 17.— When the
American pilgrims had their audience
with Pope Leo in last August they carried
into the Vatican three American flags.
These they left as souvenirs of their visit
at the shrines at Loretto, at Lourdes and'
at Paiay le Monial. The flags were blessed
by the Pope and he expressed his great
pleasure at their beauty, the bright colors
especially attracting the eye.
He expressed regret that the pilgrims
did not bring a flag for him also, as he de
sired to have one for the Vatican. This
desire he was told would be satisfied as
soon as the pilgrims got home.
In accordance with this promise, the
Brooklyn Catholic Young Women's Asso
ciation, of which the Rev. Edward W. Mc-
Gartby is spiritual director, will have two
elaborate nlk Macs made of regulation size
and texture, and will forward them to
Rome, where they will be offered as a
Christmas gift to the Pope. They will be
hung as portieres in the passageway lead
ing to the Pope's private apartments.
Mrs. F. H. Throopof Clermont avenue,
who was one of the organizers of both the
American pilgrimages, is a member of the
Catholic Women's Association, and for its
work a special blessing from the Pope was
obtained. The otlicial document stating
this is to be framed and hung in the club
house in GarneM place.
JUAI>i: OFV VITH TflE BILLS.
An Old Trick Success fully Worked bu a\
NEW YORK, N. V., Oct. 17.-G. G. Lane,
the venerable cashier of the Maritime Ex
change, made a deposit at the Corn Ex
change Bank at noon yesterday, then drew
a check for $319. He walked "over to the
window opposite, placed his roll on the
window sill, put on his glasses and began
to count the bills.
A well-dressed stranger who stood at a
desk near by, apparently drawing a check,
called Lane's attention to a one-dollar bill
on tlietloor at his feet, and as Lane stooped
to pick it up snatched up a roll of $300 that
Lane had counted, threw Mr. Lane off his
fe«»t and dashed for the door. Although
promptly followed he succeeded in making
nis escape. The old sneak game which
Thomas Byrnes described in his famous
book, "Professional Criminals of Ameri
ca," as one of the most venerable tricks of
bank sneaks, had been successfully prac
ticed in New York's financial center at the
busiest hour of the day. Not a policeman
or detective appeared for twenty-five min
utes. Then it was too late. It has been
many years since a bank sneak has at
tempted to operate below the dead line
which Byrnes established at Pulton street.
KILLED BY INDIANS.
Tiro American Miner* Said to Wave Per-
ished in Mexico.
ST. LOUIS, Mo., Oct. 17.— A special from
Hermosiilo, Mexico, says that George T.
Harrison and J. P. Baker, mining men
from Colorado, arrived there ten days Ago
and left for the Yaqui Indian country,
where they had been told were to be found
rich gold mines. A Mexican guide accom
panied them. The guide returned to Her
mosiilo yesterday and reports that they
met the Yaqui Indians 100 miles southeast.
The Indians fired, killing both the Ameri
cans. The guide claims that he was kept
a prisoner for two days and then released,
after first being admonished never to visit
the country again. The guide is suspected
of having murdered and robbed the Ameri

MONEY MEN OF AMERICA
Interesting Speeches Made at
the association of
St. John of New York Argued
for a Double Standard
and Coinage of Silver.
ATLANTA, Ga., Oct. 17.— The American
Bankers' Association elected officers to
day. E. H. Pullen of New York was
chosen president and R. J. Low.y of At
lanta vice-president. The features to-day
were the speeches made by W. P. St. John
of New York and Edward Afkinson of
York. Mr. St. John argued for a double
standard and opening of the mints again
to silver. Mr. Atkinson spoke first.
Mr. St. John, who is president of the
Mercantile National Bank of New York,
replying to Mr. Atkinson, said that accord
ing to Mr. Atkinson current antagonisms
as to money are due to distinctly different
schools of finance. He condemned Mr.
Atkinson's charge of injustice to the cred
itor in granting the debtor the option of
coins with which to pay and resented the
suggestion of a silver basis in the United
States as the result of reopening the mints
to siiver, but said that if the silver basis
ensues it may enable us to duplicate the
experience of India. India's foreign com
merce, according to Mr. St. John, estab
lishes a credit balance of trade approach
ing $190,000,000, which pays her gold
liabilities of $110,000,000 and draws $55.
--000,000 of silver and $25,000,000 of gold from
the trading world in settlement.
The suggested exhaustless supplies of
silver are to be met, he claimed, with a
supposed exhaustless supply of gold in
1853. He claimed that the object, of the
bimetallists is to enlarge the world's ag
gregate of money, while the world's ag
gregate of everything else is enlarging,
and said that the tendency of that would
be to provide producers a fair share of the
wealth which they produce, the result be
ing a tendency In law toward the dissem
ination rather than toward the aggrega
tion of wealth. He thought that inde
pendent bimetallism in the United States
would be successful if attempted under
present conditions, foreign and domestic,
and at the present ratio ot about 16 to 1.

LONDON, Eng., Oct. 17.— The Daily
News will to-morrow publish a dispatch
from Constantinople giving a description
by an eyewitness of the rioting at Trebi
zond. He says that four separate Moslem
mobs surrounded the Armenian head
quarters at 11 o'clock on the morning of
October 8 and began to pillage the shops.
Being opposed, they tired on the Armeni
ans, and soon a general massacre began.
Soldiers joined the mob in firing on the
Armenians and in pillaging the shops and
houses. The scene continued until 4
o'clock in the afternoon, when nothing
■was left to pillage and nobody remained to
be killed. Tho mob then began to dis
The better class of Turks did their best
to protect the lives of the Armenians.
They sheltered the women and children
and many men in their houses. The mob
attacked only the orthodox Armenians,
leaving Catholics alone. Only two non-
Armenians were killed, both being Greeks.
One of these was within a kalin, where
resistance led to the killing of all the in
mates, numbering fifty-five. No •women
or children were killed in the town.
At 6 o'clock the Governor and other offi
cials appeared upon the scene, and the
Governor proclaimed that anybody found
armed would be arrested and summarily
punished. Leading Turks obtained per
mission for the Armenians to lodge in the
barracks, where military protection was
given them, it being feared there might be

An official return places the number of
the dead at 180, but well-informed persons
place it at between 400 and 500.
On the same day, October 8, several vil
lages outside of Trebizond were burned
and pillaged and many persons were
killed. Other villages were partly looted.
The efforts of the officials and influential
Turks saved many lives. After matters
had quieted down the foreigners returned
to their homes from the ships on which
they had taken refuge. By October 13,
when the eyewitness left, nearly all the
foreign and native refugees had returned.

Capture of the liurglar* Who JStcaped

"Harry" Russell, one of the notorious
postoffice burglars who startled the coun

Two other, men and a woman were ar

directing him to request the Belgian au
thorities to hold all of the men until the
arrival of an officer from the United States
who could identify them.
The Belgian officials will, doubtless, com

She accompanies her mother, Mrs. W. K.
Vanderbilt, to the new residence at Madi

frequently, though she does not remain
there long. Mrs. Vanderbilt is overseeing
the placing of furniture, tapestries, pic

fiancee every evening, either in their pri

Of the 4000 wedding cards issued a fair
proportion went to different families of the
English nobility. The entire British
diplomatic corps stationed at Washington
will be present, including the Embassador,
Sir Julian Pauncefote, Lady Pauncefote
and their family. Lord and Lady Gough
will also attend. Although not yet settled
the impression is that Lord Westmeath of
higher rank than any other single man of
the Embassy, will be one of the ushers.
Naturally every one at this wedding will
be desirous of retaining some souvenir of
the occasion. Mrs. Yanderbilt has con
sidered this point and has, it is said, made
some admirable selections.
Miss Consuelo has never looked prettier
than when in public of late. At the little
family dinners or at tne theater she has
been very becomingly attired in deep rose
color (her favorite hue), old blue or em

regular intervals, when on this side of the

are sent from the leading Parisian houses

Besides the important wedding gown and
the outfit for the bridal trip nothing wnat
ever will be done in regard to a trousseau

REED IS HARD AT WORK.
Preparing a List of House
Committees and Choice
LOUD AND HILBORN 'S CHANCES.
Gossip at the Probable Repub
lican Reorganization of
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct.;i7.-In less
than six weeks Congress meets again, and
a number of Senators and Representatives
are already on hand. It is reported that
Mr. Reed, in contemplation of his election
as Speaker, is already at work on his com
mittee assignments. His work is being
done very quietly at his home in Portland,
Me., for of course he cannot take counsel
with members of Congress at this time, as
this, in advance of his election, would be
considered presumptuous. But some of
his intimate friends have lately visited him
in the interest of themselves— friends
who seek choice committee places.
It is believed tnat two chairmanships
will go to California. Mr. Loud is ranking
member of an important committee and is
entitled to this assignment by reason of
his service and familiarity with the duties.
He also ranks tirst on the Committee of
Claims, and will probably be chairman of
either one or the other. It is understood
that Mr. Bowers would like the chairman
ship of the Committee on Military Affairs,
on which he served last Congress.
Mr. Hilborn having served a greater part
of Jast Congress before he was unseated,
cannot'be regarded as a new member, and
will doubtless apply for some chairman
ship. The Committee of Immigration ana
Naturalization would probably suit his
taste, but in the Fifty-third Congress he
served on the District of Columbia Com
mittee, and may be so reassigned. He is a
friend of Mr. Reed, being a native of Reed's
State, and knew him in California when
Reed was a schoolteacher and law student
in the early days.
Republican leaders are divided on the
question of reorganizing, or attempting to
reorganize, the Senate. Senator Chandler
and others of that ultra type are spoils
men, and want every crumb of Senate
patronage, and oppose Senator Sherman's
conservatism. Senator Proctor said to
The Call correspondent to-day :
•'lt seems to me that it will be necessary
for Republicans to reorganize the Senate.
But there nas been no arrangement, un
derstanding or correspondence upon that
subject so far as lam aware. Ido not un
derstand, as has been suggested in some
quarters, that there was an agreement
among Republican Senators at the close of
the last session that there should be no re
organization of the Senate at this session,
except by Republican votes. If there was
an agreement of that kind I was not a
party to it. Republicans may not care to
resume the responsibility for reorganiza
tion of the Senate under existing condi
tions, but as a matter of fact tney cannot
avoid the consequences of their plurality.
The plurality of the Senate, for that mat
ter, practically carries control with it. Con
trol of the Seriate, of course, would give to
the Republicans power to initiate legisla
tion, which would be an advantage. I do
not think that the question of patronage
is likely at all to enter into this matter.
There certainly has been no indication of
any contest upon the part of Republican
Senators on that question.
"I have heard nothing of any rivalries
of that kind which are spoken of in the
newspapers. There certainly is nothing
in the suggestion that there will be an
attempt, if the Republicans shall re
organize the Senate, to depose Senator
Morrill from the chairmanship of the
Committee on Finance. He is the senior
Republican of that committee, and if the
Republicans should regain control of the
Senate he would undoubtedly be given
the chairmanship, which he held at the
time the Republicans lost the Senate.
"I certainly do not see how the Demo
crats can desire or expect to control the
Senate so long as they will not have a
majority wnich would make that control
effective. And there is no probability
that they will secure such a majority.
The only way in which the Democrats
could secure control of the Senate would
be by combining with all of the Populists.
That seems to be altogether impracticable.
It does not appear to me to be possible
that the Populists as a body will co-operate
with either party. This is only an as
sumption on my part.
"I have no information as to the proba
ble action of the parties as a whole, or as
to any one of them. Nor do I know what
attitude Senators Jones and Stewart, of
Nevada, will take, both of whom claim to
be Populists. There have been recent re
ports that Senator Jones has abandoned
his relations to the Populists and is likely
to return to the Republicans. I do not'
know how that maybe, or how accurate
those reports are. As for Senator Stewart
I do not imagine that he is so embittered
on account of silver controversies that he
will act as a rule with the Democrats
rather than with the Republicans. He is,
of course, an intense silver man, and is the
mainstay of the silver party. But on all
questions aside from those which relate to
silver Senator Stewart, I should say, is an
earnest Republican. He is certainly op
posed at heart and by his record to most of
things for which Democrats stand except
as regards silver."

counsel for the sugar claimants, and yes

that he would send Comptroller Bowler's
opinion in the case of the Oxnard Beet
sugar Company to the United States Court
of Claims by October 23, unless he set the
date when he would appear and argue be
fore the Secretary of the Treasury the
question of the jurisdiction of the Comp
troller of the Treasury.
To-day Senator Manderson replied from
Omaha that he hoped to be in Washington
to argue the question by November 10.
Senator Manderson says that he has no
doubt Comptroller Bowler had no jurisdic
tion in the sugar bounty case. He asserts
that to send the Comptroller's opinion to
the Court of Claims for final decision with
out the consent of the claimants is unwar
ranted in Jaw. Both points, Manderson
contends, are unassailable, and he will so
hold in his argument before Secretary Car

NEW YORK, N. V., Oct. 17.— Mrs. John
L. Waller, wife of the former United States
Consul to Madagascar, arrived in this city
to-day on the Dutch steamship Amster
dam. She was accompanied by her three
daughters and young son. She said that
she could add but little to the reports al
ready made public of her husband's con
finement in the prison at Marseilles.
"There is one thing I would like to say,
however." Mrs. Waller said. "Embassador
Eustis has been harshly criticized for not
aiding us as much as he might have done.
There is no truth in that report. The whole
trouble lay with Robert Campbell, my bus
band's predecessor. He promised me to
cable the authorities at Washington asking
for their assistance, but instead of doing
so he wrote, thus causing me an unnecs
sary delay of nearly three months.
"I shall go to Washington at once, and
there try to make arrangements for my
husband's release. He is most unjustly
Mrs. Waller says that if Mr. Waller had
not been detained at Tamatave by Consul
Wetter, who 'inwarrantably questioned
some of her husband's official acts, Waller
would not have been arrested.
In fact, she said, public opinion at
Tamatave was to the effect that Consul
Wetter was in collusion with the French
authorities. She was sent home on third
class passage, and while on the steamer
she and her children were grossly insulted
by the French soldiers.
From Marseilles, where she and her
children were treated with the greatest
kindness by Consul Claude Thomas, of
whom Bhe speaks in the highest terms,
Mrs. Waller came to the United States in
the second cabin. She says her husband
is in very poor health.
