BRYAN COMMENTS UPON

Bryan came down on tofnight's Virginia j
and Truckee train. He was asked con- j
crrning to-day's press dispatch from Sim- ■

standard In India.
"I have not had time to read the. dis
patch carefully." said Mr. Bryan, "but i
as I understand it the people of India ,
have nothing to do with the closing of ,
the mint. All such action is taken by the

authenticity of the report and a copy of

"If it is true it simply goes to Illustrate
that under an Imperialistic policy Eng- ,

her own benefit and in no wise for the i
good of the people of India. Stlli. three
years ago n-e went to England for our

"What will be the effect of this
change?" Mr. Bryan was asked.
"It will affect the price of silver," he
"What effect will it have on the silver
question In this country?"
"if it has any effect it ought to be to
our advantage; because it shows ; hat we

not turn our money matters over to Eng

When asked If it would not make it
much more difficult for this country to
adopt the free coinage of silver. Mr.

"Would it not all the sooner flood this

EXCITING SCENES AT
Chairman Phillips and an Official of
the Standard Oil Company
Nearly Pass the Lie.
WASHINGTON, Sept. B.— At to-day's
session of the Industrial Commission an
animated controversy occurred between
Chairman Phlllipps of the commission and
J. D. Archbold of New York, vice presi
dent of the Standard Oil Company. Mr.
Archbolr 1 . was on the stand replying to
statements • made by J. D. Lee of the
United Pipe Company and other Indepen
dent companies. Referring to Mr. Lee's
statement that the Standard had made
advances to the Pipe Line Company with
a view to buying it out, Mr. Archbold
"Any approaches on that line have come
from the other side," and he proceeded
to say that such advances had been made
not only by Lee, but by others connected
with the Independent lines, Including Mr.
"We have declined their offers." he said,
"because we considered them illegal; and,
: furthermore, because of our lack of faith
in the men from whom the proposition
came, having had previous experience
In reply to Mr. Phillips he Bald he did
not claim that the propositions were "un
fair or unjust, but illegal." V-
Mr. Phillips attempted to make a state
: ment* at this point, but was cut off by the
| commission on the ground that he could
at any time take the stand in his own
This special incident clo«ed here. Mr.
Archbold several times used the expres
sion, referring to Mr. Lee, who was pres
i ent in the commission's room, "the state
j ment is false, and you know It."

PEARL HARBOR, HAWAII
WASHINGTON, Sept. B.— Admiral Brad
ford, chief of the Bureau of Equipment,
and General Wilson, chief of engineers,
have been consulting respecting the im
provement of Pearl harbor, Hawaii, with
a view to the establishment of a naval
station there, as directed by Congress.
An unexpected and Bej_ous obstacle to the
execution of the project has been encoun
tered In the shape of refractory real estate
holders. Having exhausted all other
proper methods, the officials have deter
mined now to proceed to acquire the
necessary lands through condemnation
proceedings, having satisfied themselves
that this can bo accomplished through
the Hawaiian laws aa they stand to-day.
The Navy Department has Just received
the detailed survey of Pearl harbor, made
laHt year by the Bennlngton. It Is far
morn complete than anything before un
dertaken, and one result of a study of this
survey has been to satisfy the engineer
officers that a good deal of unforeseen
work must be done In strengthening the
channels connecting the harbor with the

MANILA, Sept. s.— A Filipino who has
arrived her*- from Tarlac says an extra
ordinary session of the revolutionary
congress took place at Tarlac on August
24. Aguinaldo presided and cljose Ma
bini as president of the Supreme Court
and Gonzaga as Attorney General. They
both represent the most conservative and
Mabini, who recently resigned the I< or
eign Secretaryship, is the ablest man con
nected with the revolution. Gonzaga was
president of the last peace commission. ■
The proceedings of the congress dis
proved the report that Aguinaldo had de
clared himself dictator. A decree has been
issued by the Filipinos compelling the reg
istration of all foreigners in Filipino ter
ritory.- The Chinese, who are a large
fraction of the population, are considered
foreigners, including those born in the
Philippine Islands. Application must be
made on stamped paper, which figures
largely in all the business of the insur
rectionary government. This seems to
be largely a scheme to tax Chinamen.
REFUSE TO ENLIST
PITTSBURG. Sept. B.— Lieutenant T. O.
Murphy of the United Staffs army re

MeadvilK-. Pa. f disgusted with the Mead
vllle anti-expansionists, who caused him
to close the sub-recruiting station there
and to come away without a single re
cruit. The station was opened August
29. in charge of Private Baldwin, and in
two days seventeen applicants had been
examined and five accepted. Mr. Murphy
went up yesterday to swear the men in.
but none appeared and Baldwin went out
and brought them to the office. They re
fused to take the oath.
One of them said: "Mj friends have
been talking to me and tHlin^ me the
Americans oughi not to have anything to
do with the war over there In the Phil
ippines. They told me those fellows
ought to be given a chance to be their
own bosses, and this country is not
ing them a square deal in fighting them.
All the folks here foel that way, and it
will Ro hard with US fellows if we go
into the army to ro over to the Philip

WASHINGTON. Sept. B.— The Cabinet
meeting to-day whs devoted almost en
tirely to a discussion of the local govern
ment which will be ePtabllsht-d in the
Philippines on the cessation of hostllltU-s.
Secretary Root has given the matter
much thought, .mil his views as exprf-s^ed
at the meeting to-day wen- received with
approval by .-ill of the members present.
H~ pointed out that a system of govern
ment wlilih wmild be suited to the people
of Luzon would hardly do for some of the
other Islands, where the inhabitants were
far less advanced, A member of the Cab
inet, in speaking of the matter, said that
Secretary Root displayed a broad states
manship and a knowledge of the economic
;iii'i Bocial conditions of the islands. Post
master General Smith spoke briefly to the
effect that there was an increasing de
mand in Cube and Porto Rico for money
order facilities and a surprising growth
in the receipts of the Postal Department,
which was expected to mean n rapid Im
provement in business through the island.
RAPID FIRE GUNS TO BE

WASHINGTON, Sept. B.— Some months

Ordnanc* and Fortifications. General
Buffiugton, Chief of Ordnance, disap
proved the recommendation.
One reason for the visit of Secretary
Root to Sandy Hook was to see this gun
tested and decide upon its merits. Secre

the r?un should be used. It is not known
how many will be sent to the Philip

CAPE HAYTIEN. Sept. B.—
The town of Monte Christo, in
San Domingo, has surrendered
to the insurgents. Richards left
this morning with an armed
escort for Santiago de Los
Caballero*, San Domingo, to con
sult with Jimenes.
M<»('.\. Fan Domingro, Sept. B.—Gen
eral Jimenes arrived this afternoon at
Moca with an escort of 500 cavalry,
largely augmented by armed horsemen
from the villages along the route.
Everywhere the utmost enthusiasm
It was here that the late President
Heureaux was killed by Ramon
Caceres, who is now the idol of the
President and the Minister of War in
the provisional government. The con
spirators claim that they have secured
a list of persons whom Heureaux had
designated for execution.
General Jimenes has received a dis
patch from a Parisian banking house
promising to furnish all the funds ne
cessary to establish the government,
the French interests being second only
to the American. He will proceed to
La Vega to-night.
KIXCSTOX, Jamaica, Sept. B.—Do
minican mail advices just received
here say that the apparently en
thusiastic and ostensibly national dem
onstration prepared in San Doming"
for Juan Isidro Jimenes, the leader of
the revolution in that country, by Gen
eral Imber and the leaders of Jimenes'
immediate political faction, is alto
gether representative of the real pop
ular sentiment. It is now beginning to
appear that while the whole nation ac
cepted the revolution on the tacit un
derstanding that the intolerable in
cubus of party politics would be per
manently removed by securing an
American protectorate, Jimenes' party
were finally working for his personal
interests, to the establishment of which
they now purpose utilizing the victory
if they can compass his constitutional
In spitp of the growing popularity of
General Horacio Vasquez. the pro
visional vice president, who war- the
real leader of the revolution and is the
real hero of the hour, the advices add
that unless the person elected either
adopts the popular aspirations, or. as
an alternative, succeeds in giving the
country immediately an administra
tion combining sovereign independence
with that financial stability, industrial
progress and complete international
political freedom to which it has so
long been a stranger, and which the
people are fully determined to secure
at any cost of bloodshed or even a par
tial surrender of sovereignty, another
revolution is sure to follow.
In conclusion the advices say thßt
the foreign interests in San Domingo
are watching the developments with
the keenest anxiety.
