Havana. Oct. 8. Reports received by
the provisional government show the
pacification of Cuba is practically com
plete, with the exception of the prov
ince of Santa Clara, where matters are
rapiilly nearing a settlement. The only
trouble known to exist is at Alquizar,
province of Havana, where liberals and
moderates are about equally divided
and initation has been caused by the
reinstatement of a liberal mayor.

The disquieting condition at Alqmzar
has been caused by the exuberance of

1'nvlnc: Vny for Annexation.
Havana. Oct. 8. Preliminaries to
the annexation of Cuba by the United
States, or at least a definite form of
protectorate, were taken yesterday.
The action which may have such an
important bearing on Cuba's future
was the organization of the Good Gov
ernment league. Resolutions were
passed to the effect that the purpose of
the association should be "the promo
ting of all legitimate means of the es
tablishment and maintenance of a per
manent, stable, and lawful government,
competent to administer justice, insure
domestic tranquility, promote the gen
eral welfare, and insure the blessings
of liberty to all the inhabitants of the
o I'ljin Adopted.
It was declared that the league in
tended to adopt whatever means to this
end were deemed wisest by a majority
of the membership, which is intended
to be representative of all nationalities
and all sections, and not to be commit
ted to any line of action until it is de
cided what is most conducive to the
objects named. While there was no ex
pression to that effect, the movement
generally is regarded as pointing event
ually toward some more definite de
gree of American control or oversight
in Cuban affairs than is vouchsafed by
the Piatt amendment.

The first landing of American sol

was accomplished yesterday with mar

TALKS OF THE NORTHWEST
Unshackling Trade From Legislative
Bonds Would Build a Perma
Chicago, Oct. 8. James J. Hill was
the principal speaker Saturday night at
a banquet given at the Auditorium ho
tel under the auspices of the Commer
cial association. His theme was "The
Development of the Northwest." Mr.
Hill predicted that bythe middle of
this century our population will exceed
200,000,000 and that the great question
even now is how shall these people find
profitable occupation and obtain the
necessities of life. Practically all our
public lands are occupied; irrigation
will supplyjonly. aboiit-li.0iL0'."O 40-acre
farms: our forests are rapidly going:
our iron and coal supplies will begin to
show, signs of exhaustion before 50
years have passed.
Ilnck to Soil.
"We shall, with these coming mil
lions to provide for," he said, "be
thrown back upon the soil, the only re
source of mankind capable of infinite
renewal and that offers life for gener
ation after generation. Upon the culti
vation of the soil all varied commercial
activity, of whatever intrinsic form or
interest, is mainly built; and upon it
depend the future of mankind and the
nature and stability of its institutions."
ed Hetter Kfirmintc.
Mr. Hill then called attention to the
fact that the soil was being impover
ished by careless treatment, and de
clared that reform in its management
is an absolute necessity so that agri
cultural products may be doubled each
year to provide for the millions of the
"The time is coming'," he said, "when
we shall need our wheat crop for home
consumption and seed; when our mines
will not yield, except at increased cost,
the iron and coal required for manufac
tured commodities consumed at home:
and when cheap labor at the orient,
whose wages we cannot hope to meet,
equipped with our machinery and with
the patience and initiative instinct
there so highly developed, will van
quish all competitors in every market.

"Though our trade were unshackled
from the legislative bonds that now pre
vent its natural growth and free ex
pansion, it would not offer us for long
any other reliance than a broken reed.
Every nation that enjoys prosperity and
that exhibits a healthy national vitality
is rooted in the soil; and all its other
industries are clustered about tillage
as the branches spread from the parent
stock that nourishes them all.
"To a realization of our position, to a
return to agriculture, to jealous care of
our land resources both as to quantity
and quality, and to a mode of cultiva
tion that shall at once multiply the
yield per acre and restore instead of
destroying productive qualities, we
must come without delay if we are to

of the city."
