Republican Position on the
Question of Revising
BUT LODGE GOES FARTHER
Senator in a Speech Favors Lower Du
ties for Hides and
GREAT SIGNIFICANCE IS
ATTACHED TO HIS WORDS
iays There Is Nothing Sacred About
Rates and Schedules, but the Repub
lican Party Is Pledged to Protection
and Will Change the Tariff Accord
ingly, If at All.
Special to The Globe.
BOSTON, Mass., Sept. 27.—Senator
Lodge spoke at a dinner of the Repub
lican Editorial association this after
noon. As he was one of the leading
figures in the Oyster Bay conference,
his remarks are regarded here by Re
publicans as of great significance. He
"We cannot make reciprocal ar
rangements with Canada. We can with
a few South American countries. But
when you come to a general system of
reciprocity treaties, you enter upon
an attempt, which I believe, after many
years of careful and practical consid
eration, to be impracticable."
Mr. Lodge favored a lowering of du
ties on hides and wool, but admitted
that Ohio and other great Western
states would strongly oppose any such
plan. He continued:
"The Republican party has always
been ready and stands ready today to
make a revision of the tariff whenever
the changed conditions or the necessity
of business demand it. There is noth
ing sacred about rates and schedules.
What we stand pledged to as a party
now and always is the principle of pro
tection. We do not say that this sched
ule or that schedule or all the schedules
might not be modified, reduced, raised
or changed to meet conditions and new
"We stand there now and if there !s
a need of a revision of the tariff and
the Republican party is convinced of
It by the work of its committee or by a
commission appointed to investigate, it
will make that revision and make it on
WILL REMAIN IN
United States Troops Not to Be
Withdrawn Till a Permanent
Treaty Is Signed.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Sept. 27.—
Though recognizing in the request of
the Cuban government for the with
drawal of the remaining American
troops In Cuba a natural desire to re
move all traces of foreign occupation,
the indications are that the authori
ties here will order the withdrawal
only upon the completion of the per
manent treaty contemplated in the
Platt amendment. Both that amend
ment and the Cuban constitution pro
vide that a permanent treaty shall be
(Signed between the United States and
Cuba whereby each government shall
assume certain distinct obligations.
It is regarded as essential that such
provisions in the projected treaty as
those touching coaling Btations and
the ownership of the Isle of Pines be
•xpressly arranged for in a treaty that
■hall be absolutely binding upon both
parties; and only when these things
be done will the small remaining force
•f United States troops be withdrawn.

Author Says the Prussian Kingdom,

Logic Lacking the Measures Applied

BERLIN, Sept. 27.—M. Henrik Sien

Prussian Poles not to allow thmselves
to be driven into extreme acts or words
through the anti-Polish agitation. He
has addressed the following appeal to
the Polish people:
"At present glowing hatred of the
Poles, their traditions, language and
ideals is spreading in Germany. The
movement has one good effect —it ren

The Germanism which is thrust upon
us through force and hatred will never
more pass into Polish blood. It Is at
best but varnish which can be immedi

Polish people is hatred against Ger

here begins the task of every decent,
"Protect the Polish popular mind
from hatred in order not to be poison

morally and politically. Remember
that only God knows what evolutions

or historical perception not to see that
the treatment you are receiving from
your enemies not only lacks dignity,
but the equipoise and intelligence
which characterize actions as reason

You too must feel that logic is lack

you and that the authorities them
selves are not clear regarding the suc

STEALS A HORSE IN %
ORDER TO MARRY
Young Girl Arrested Upon Charge of
Theft While Going to Meet Her
Closely Guarded Hover.
Special to The Globe.
LA CROSSE, Wis., Sept. 27.—Pretty
sixteen-year-old Christina Peterson,
the daughter of a well-to-do and re
spected farmer, residing a few miles
south of here, Is under arrest for the
theft of a horse from a farmer near
Ferryville; and though the girl was
reluctant to confess It, her fall from
grace was caused by her love for a
wealthy young farmer named Olson,
residing near -Viroqua.
She left her home and went to F.er
ryville some time ago to work for
friends, for her parents had refused to
allow Olson about. On the other hand,
the father o* the young man strenu
ously objected to the match and for
bade his son to leave the doorstep, or
go where he might see his sweetheart.
The vigilance of the boy's father was
such that a meeting was impossible
and it was arranged for Miss Peter
son to go to Viroqua, there to be se
cretly married. Without money or
means, it is alleged, she stole the horse
from a neighbor's barn and all night
she rode through a heavy storm toward
her goal. Early In the morning she
reached Purdy, a hamlet but a short
distance from Viroqua, there to be ar
rested on what she was to have been
her wedding day. She has been taken
ill from exposure and may not recover.

bell while the men v.*ere at work. They
were sent up to the dangerous place
about an hour before. Something had

to make the necessary repairs. The
men must have receded some warning

What is known aiiiung the workmen
as the "bell" is, in tact, the blast fur
nace top, and the workmen are well
acquainted with the dire results which
follow the uplifting of this portion of
the furnace. Workmen in the yard of
the Carnegie works at Duquesne works
noticed* the eight men on the furnace
top. They were rushing around the
edge and would look over the sides,
excitedly gesticulating to those below.
Then, gauging the distance from the
top to the yard below, they gave up all
idea of making the desperate leap, as it
was sure death.
Suddenly the lid of the "bell" of the
furnace was rent from Its attachments
and swung down to the "side of the
furnace. A deafening explosion fol
lowed and the furnace flames shot sky
ward. Clouds of glistening red cinders,
lumps of slag, molten metal and dust
mounted out of the opening. The
eight workmen made vain efforts to
conceal their bodies under the furnace
walk. When the flames had subsided
rescuers made their way to the top of
the furnace, where the men were found
lying around, all unconscious. All of
the men are Slavs.
Five Hundred Bodies of the Cyclone
Recovered—The Tempest Rages
ROME, Sept. 27.—Advices tonight
from Sicily show that the tempest that
worked such damage in that island is
still raging. Details of the storm
multiply the number ol deaths. On
the east coast 370 bodies have been
recovered, and the sea continues to
give up corpses which were swept
down by the torrents from the in
terior. It is estimated that 500 bodies
have already been recovered.
Three hundred lives were lost at
Modica. The churches there are filled
with dead, and the cemeteries are
wastes of mud, rendering the inter
ment of bodies impossible.
At Sortino the cyclone continued fif
teen hours. The rains which have fol
lowed the cyclone have aggravated the
disaster, sweeping clown bridges and
interrupting railway traffic.

PANAMA, Colombia, Sept. 27.—The
government gunboat Chucuito left here
this morning, escorting a gasoline
launch with a commissioner on board
bearing to the insurgent general, Her

American gunners who recently arrived
here for service on government gun

government commissioner had been in

off Yegualita, where the Insurgent
leader's forces were reported to be.
When the launch was a little more
than 100 yards from shore, though both
boats were flying white flags, the revo

The gunners were prepared for any
emergency and they immediately an

then trained their guns on the house In
which the rebels had established their
headquarters, completely demolishing
it and causing the revolutionists to
take to flight-. •
Gen. Salazar is highly Indignant at
the manner in which his commissioner
was received, which is in striking con

messenger, who, upon arrival here, was
entertained at the governor's palace
and was supplied upon leaving with
provisions for himself and his crew.
The first service of the American
gunners has produced an excellent im

the men are being lionized.

American and British Companies Suo

LONDON, Sept. 27.—The tobacco war
has been ended by the amalgamation
of the American and British Interests.
An official statement says:
"The business of Ogdens, Limited,
has been transferred to the Imperial
Tobacco company and the export busi
nesses of the Imperial, Ogdens and the
American Tobacco company and Its al
lies have been amalgamated and a Joint
company is in course of formation un
der the name of the British-American
Tobacco company. Limited. The result
is that the Imperial company will be
left in possession of the trade of the
United Kingdom, while the American
company is not to be disturbed in the
United States or Cuba and the British-
American company will compete for
the trade of the other parts of the
world. The American company will
pay for the good will of Ogdens busi
ness In ordinary shares ranking with
the similar shares of the original ven
dors between the 6% per cent preferred
shares of that company and will pay for
the tangible assets of Ogdens in cash.
"It is believed this combination is the
first attempt to unite any great inter
national Industry and its progress will
be watched with Interest everywhere.

direction of British and American in

LONDON, Sept. 27. —An American
woman who has a son at Oxford uni

by writing to the London Times com
plaining of the filth and discomfort of
his college rooms.
"Ought I," she writes, "to subject the

STAGE MANAGER A
Harry Rose Was Jealous of the Atten
tions of Samuel Adams, a Rich
Real Estate Man.
NEW YORK, Sept. 27. —Harry Rose,
stage manager of the Garrick,theater,
shot and instantly killed his wife to
day at their apartments in West
Thirty-third street. Immediately aft
erwards he surrendered himself at the
nearest police station, where he handed
the revolver to the sergeant, saying:
"I have Just shot my wife."
Jealousy was the cause of the trag
edy, Rose, according to his statement
to the police, having detected his wife
in an intrigue and being maddened by
her admission of guilt.
Mrs. Rose was formerly an actress,
and was known on the stage as Belle
Berger. She was a sister of Mrs.
Charles Zimmerman, whose husband
is a partner in the Philadelphia theat
rical firm of Nixon & Zimmerman.
The man charged by Rose with hav
ing alienated the affections of his
wife is Samuel Adams, a wealthy real
estate dealer, and a constant attend
ant at first-night performances, with
whom Rose was on terms of friendly
intimacy, and whom, he says, he in
troduced to his wife. Adams was
greatly overcome on learning of Mrs.
Rose's tragic death, but denied there
had been any impropriety in his rela
tions whatever. Rose was held with
out bail by the coroner and committed
to the Toombs.
