Revolution Said To Be Progress

THE SHOT THAT KILLED HEUEEAUX
Starts so rpheaval and Threatens More
IJIoodhed Revolutionists Momentarily
Expected to Attack Puerto Plata State
ment Tbat Gomri Could Bring Peace by
Accepting tbe Presidency Siatlve Cu
ban Society (slves Uncle Sain a Illnc.
Puerto Plata, Santo Domingo, July
21. The situation is critical. An out
break is momentarily expected. The
friends of the government are under
arms and ready for action to protect
property and preserve the peace. A fee
ble attempt was made to seize the body
of President Heureaux by theassassins,
Rare on Caceres, Manuel Caceres, Hora
cio Vasquez and Domingo Pichardo,
who are in the country about Moca
with their followers. The burial of
President Heureaux was conducted with
fitting: honors. Governor Pepin has
assembled tho trcops in Moca, and the
governor of La Vega Real has 1,000
men. The minister of the treasury has
arrived at Moca in hot haste. The gov
ernment is taking steps for the protec
tion of business and the finance of the
country, and expects to carry out the
contemplated cancellation of the state
bank notes. In Puerto Plata there is
an urgent demand that the government
send a sufficient force to Moca to hunt
down the assassins of the president.
Revolution Is Progressing Pavorably.
Kingston, Jamaica, July 31. A pri
vate cable dispatch received here by
way of Cape Haytien reports that the
revolution in Santo Domingo is pro
gressing favorably. The dispatch says
that he real reason for the detention
of President Heureaux's body at San
tiago and its interment there was that
the country between Santiago and Puer
to Plata is occupied by the insurgents
who abandoning their plan of occupy
ing Moca as a base of operations are
concentrating to attack Puerto Plata,
which is feebly garrisoned. Great ex
citement prevails, owing to the fact
that the government has not been able
to ascertain the extent of the ramifica
tions of the revolution and is growing
demoralized through the death of tho
Gomel Conlcl Harmonize Everybody.
In the event of the revolution suc
ceeding still according to the .private
cablegram it is probable that Jiminez
and Jitones, the reputed leaders of the
revolution, will agree to retire, offering
the presidency to General Maximo Go
mez, who would, prove acceptable to all
parties. A deputation, it is reported,
is going to Cuba to confer with General
Not Ambitious for the Honor.
Havana, July 31. La Lucha prints
the report of an interview with Senor
Nolasco, secretary to General Gomez,
who was seen by the paper's representa
tive because Gomez was too busy to
talk with him. Senor Nolasco said:
"General Gomez has served Cuba for
forty years in the cause of independ
ence, and only desires to see an inde
pendent and honorable republic estab
lished. He has no ambition to be pies
Ident of Cuba or Santo Domingo.
Though such an ambition were, per
haps, legitimate, it has never taken
root in the heart of the old fighter for
DEMONSTRATION AT HAVANA.
Independence Society Parades with Sig
nificant Emblems and Speeches.
Havana, July 31. A mass meeting
was held yesterday under the auspices
of the Sociedad Democratico, a branch
of the Cuban National Society of In
dependence. A procession paraded the
streets for two hours, headed by a
band and bearing banners with the in
scription "Cuba is and by right ought
to be free and Peace worK." Two
girls dressed to represent Cuba and
America rode in the procession. Cuba
libre was represented by a girl with
broken chains on ber wrists. Few
American flags were to be seen on the
streets, but hundreds of Cuban em
blems were displayed.
A number ot speeches were made at
the meeting, all in favor of absolute
independence and union, and urging
the furtherance of work to secure this
result. Senor Barrian said some had
spoken of the assembly as one party
and of Maximo Gomez as another. "The
cry now is, death to either if that be
necessary to secure the union of the
people." Hitherto, the speaker de
clared, the Cuban National party, ow
ing to divisions in it. had net done
anything; but now the various fac
tions are uniting throughout the coun
try. He himself had formerly repre
sented the Socialist party, but had
sunk his. personal feelings in favor of
The object now was for all to utiite
white and black. Their party, he
said, now represented the people, and
it remained for it later to throw out
whoever did not like what the party
did. Senor Gonzales said the party had
three main ideas absolute indepen
dence for the island, universal suffrage
and the absolute management of Cu
ban affairs by Cubans henceforth.
Among the other speakers were Senores
Gualberto Gomez, Aceo and De la Torre.
Two thousand persons attended the
GOVERNMENT OF THE SAMOAXS.
Some Paints f ram the Report ef the High
San Francisco. July 31. The Call
publishes the report of the tripartite
commission sent to Samoa, making va
rious recommendations regarding the
new form of government decided upon
by them as most suitable for the isl
anders. The official report of the com
missioners and the draft of the pro
posed amended treaty are said to be
now on the way to the respective gov
ernments. The report says the com
mission found the kingship an evil and
abolished it. and the report presents a
new form of government.
The most significant part of the re
port is this, probably: "Perhaps the
evils which it is least easy to cure are
the sotond class, those which arise front
the rivalry and mutual hostility of the
different nationalities. This hostility
permeates all departments of life.
The traders on, one side com
bine against those on the other. The
municipal council is divided into two
parties, each determined to support its
own programme and defeat that of the
other. Proposed reforms and measures
are judged not on their merits, but by
party considerations, and officials,
however impartial they may wish to
be, are considered to belong to one side
or the other, according to their na
tionality, and inevitably end by be
coming more or less partisan.
"From the very commencement of
the late contest for the kingship it was
no mere native quarrel between Ma
taafa and Tanu. On the one side were
ranged one nationality and its officials,
and on the other side two other na
tionalities, with their officials, and the
contest was prolonged and not allowed
to reach its natural termination.
"We do not think it will ever be pos
sible to do away with this state of
things under a tripartite administra
tion, and we think this opportunity of
recording our opinion that the only
natural and normal plan of government
for these Islands and the only system
which can assure permanent prosperity
and tranquillity is a government by one
"Little Henry" la lel. "
Chicago, July 31. The funeral of
Henry Wercker, better known to farm
ers of northern Illinois and southern
Wisconsin and to thousands In Chi
cago as "Little Henry," who died
Thursday, was held yesterday after
noon. Wercker was a saloonkeeper
and his place of business was at Wells
and Klnzie streets, opposite the North
western depot, and was the resort of
hundreds of farmers who came to
the city on business. It was owing to
the great care he took of his country
guests and his well-known honesty
that he was named "Safe Little Henry."
Death of Chester Allen Wilcox.
Qulrity, Ills.. Jnly 31. Chester Allen
Wilcox, postmaster of Quincy and
one of the most prominent Masons
in the west, died yesterday morning of
Brighfs disease, aged 52, he was ap
pointed postmaster by Harrison in
1889, and again by McKInley in 1897.
He was for twenty years one of the
proprietors of the Quincy Whig and
most of tbe time was its manager.

PEAC2 CONFERENCE E5D3.
State Which Did Not S!pn All the Conven
The Higue. July 31. The interna
tional peace conference held its final
sitting Saturday. Baron de Staal de
livered the farewell address, thank
ing the representatives ot foreign
states. He said the work accomplished,
while not so complete as might be
desired, was sincere, wise and practical.
Minister Esteurnelles and Dr. Beaufort
followed, the latter saying that if the
conference had not realized Utopian
dreams, nevertheless it had disproved
pessimistic forebodings, and the moral
effect would more and- more influence
public opinion. Baron de Staal then
declared the conference closed.
The three conventions, dealing with
arbitration, the laws and customs of
war and the adaptation of the Geneva
convention to naval warfare, were not
signed by Germany, Austria-Hungary,
China, England, Italy, Japan, Luxem
burg, Servia. Switzerland or Turkey.
The United States signed only the arbi
tration convention, and tha under re
serve. Great Britain will sign the ar
bitration convention In due time. The
three declarations prohibiting the
throwing of explosives from balloons,
the use of asphyxiating projectiles and
the use of dumdum bullets were not
signed by Germany, Austria-Hungary,
China, England, Italy, Japan, Luxem
burg, Servia or Switzerland, and the
United States signed only the declara
tion regarding the throwing of ex
plosives from balloons.
In a letter to Queen Wilhelmina the
pope promised his support to the
conclusions of the conference.

Mayor of St. Louis Writes a Protest to
St. Louis, July 31. Mayor -Zeigen-hein,
of this city, took a hand in op
posing the opening of the Chicago'
drainage canal by addressing a long
protest to President McKinley in the
name of the citizens of St. Louis. The
mayor lays particular stress on "the
danger to the people of St. Louis and
to the people of the lower Mississippi
vallpy should the sewage of the city
of Chicago be discharged into the Mis
sissippi river, which furnishes the sup
ply of drinking water to thousands."
He asks that the permit recently is

waters of Lake Michigan to flow into
the Chicago river and the drainage ca
nal be revoked.
