Issues Now Seems Quite Probable. A CHANGE IN SITUATION PREPARATIONS FOR THE LAND ING' OF ARMED FORCES IN CUBA CONTINUES HOWEVER WAR DEPARTMENT ACTIVITY. Washington, tvL 21. The pacific tone of disratches from Havana had a favorable effect upon ths military and naval officials, and there was a marked change in their attitude from Saturday, when it was thought that intervention was near at hand. The prospect cf an amicable adjustment of the issues between the Palma govern ment and the insurgents, however,' does not deter the officials here from continuing the preparation which they have been making to land forces in Cuba if it becomes necessary. The naval collier Leonidas at Lam bert's Point and the Hannibal at New port News will sail in the course of a day or two for Havana loaded with coal for the American naval vessels now in that harbor, and with the dis patch of these colliers it is said the naval officials feel that all that can be done by the navy at this stage in preparation for eventualities will have been accomplished. Brigadier General Crozier, chief of ordnance, has returned to Washington after a visit to several of the larg?r eastern arsenals. He would not admit that his trip had any connection wilh the Cuban situation, but he did say that his department was now thor oughly prepared to meet any call if operations in that country should b"? necessary. The same is true of tb.3 commissary and quartermaster's d? partment: In the case of the forme; It being said there was'no apprehen sion of a shortage of food supplies. r. arrangements have been made for oh taining any quantity likely to L needed.

On the contrary, the foreign office declares specifically that nothing cf the sort has been sug gested from any quarter. The govern ment of Franc assumes that the Unit ed St3tes is acting in perfect good faith and with the sole object of re storing order. , OBSERVE FIFTIETH YEAR OF WEDLOCK Golden Wedding Anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Thornton Cain Fittingly Celebrated - , HELD IN FRIENDS CHURCH TWO HUNDRED INVITED 'GUESTS JOINED IN THE JOYFUL FESTI VITIES DECORATIONS WERE ALL IN GOLDEN COLORS.

The plans for the evangelistic meet- Ings which will be held in this city beginning Oct. 2S were perfected at the meeting of the ministerial asso ciation yesterday morning. The meetings which will be held will be city wide and for the benefit of no particular denomination. At the ad vice of the Rev. J. Wilbur Chapman, who is at present engaged in evan gelistic work, Rev. Elliott of Philadel phia will b? engaged to carry on and superintend the services. Meetings will be held in.tha shops and on the streets as well as in each of the chur ches at night,- - - The ministerial association will aid the plans for the coming Y. M. C.

On Saturday the College Will Get Some Munificent Gifts From Wealthy Members of The Church. NATURE OF DONATIONS , ARE NOT MADE PUBLIC Contention About Doctrine of Rev. 0. M. Frazer Will i Probably Not Come up He is Called to New Castle. Saturday of this week will in some respects be the most important day of the Indiana Yearly Meeting. At that time the report of President Robt. L. Kelly, of Earlham College will be read and there is every rea son to believe that liberal gifts will be made to the institution. The na ture of these gifts have not been made known. President Kelly - was asked yesterday if it were not true that the college would profit largely at this season of the Yearly Meeting. He smiled and said it w-ould pay the members of the press to attend Sat urday's meeting as they would pro bably get some interesting news. "There is a great deal of "enthus iasm being manifested by members of the Yearly Meeting in Earlham just now," he continued, "on account of the progress she is making. The new library and a gift of a new dor mitory have tended to make the friends of the college take added in terest in It." Gifts Made Two Years Ago. Two years ago the standing debt of Earlham was liquidatl by money raised in the church following the president's report. This year the re port will be the most favorable ever made and it is very likely- that money will be forthcoming in proportion. Perhaps the Yearly Indiana Meeting takes greater interest . in . Earlham than the Western Yearly Meeting, notwithstanding that- both have an equal share in the management of its affairs. The Western Yearly Meet ing takes great pride in the fact that they have furnished Earlham's four presidents.' Several visitors arrived here yes terday to attend the Meeting. Full provisions has been made for their entertainment. l hey will receive entertainment at the homes of the different local members of the church, while meals will be served in the basement of the East Main Street Friends church where all sessions, with the exception of the meeting of the evangelistic committee, will be held. The session of this committee will be held in the South 8th Street Friends' church. Frazer Called to New Castle. The Yearly Meeting will perhaps entirely ignore the charges made some time ago by the pastoral com m';titVe of tjie WhMewater crlrch against the Rev. Oliver M. Frazer. On the ground that his doctrine was unsound, he was not asked to return to the Whitewater Friends', church by the committee. The Rev. Mr. Frazer was exonerated of all charges at the local Quarterly Meeting and yesterday he accepted a call to the Friends Church at New Castle, thus indicating that ne is in the very best of standing in the church. The Rev. Mr. Frazer said yesterday that he knew of no reason why his case should be discussed further by the church. As far as he is concerned he will drop the matter. He bears , the pastoral committee at the White water church no ill feeling, although many trunk that he has grounds for calling for an explanation of their conduct before the Yearly Meeting. The Rev. Mr. Frazer will remain a student "at Earlham College this year and carry on his work in New Castle as' well.

LIBRARY SITE ANNOUNCED CARNEGIE BUILDING WILL BE EAST OF MEN'S WALK, DIRECT LY pPPOSITE LINDLEY HALL- PLANS NOT YET ADOPTED. Marked by a larger atendance than ever before'on the first da" Earlham College opened for the fart term of school yesterday. Everything points to an ususually good year, and when this statement is made, it means more than the' usual comment which comes at this time of the year. There was a greater demand 'for rooms in the dormitory yesterday than there ever has been, in fact, all students who desired to, could not -get rooms in the "dorm". More rooms too in homes near the school have been en girged than in other.years. There were two noticable points in the work' signed for by students yesterday. More registered in the civil engineering department than in former terms, while many took work in the new manual training de partment, which Prof. Morrison has established. There are good reasons for this. Many Earlham students have recently secured good positions on large railroads, and , with other corporations as the result of their training under Prof. R. L. Sackett. the demand too is increasing for such students. To students who are tak ing work in his department,; Prof. Sackett' has recommended tne work under Prof. Morrison and hence the great interest in the new; department.

Its entrance will be on a line with the entrance of Lindley. Between the library and Parry Hall the Bundy Dormitory will be erected.

Wayne is Organizing Circuit to In clude Some Towns Now in Central League.. CLARENCE JESSUP BACK OF. LOCAL BALL CLUB He Has Signed Ten Fast Play ers for Coming Season and Can Secure Ground for an Up To Date Ball Park. If the plans of Isaflor Mautnfrr, prominent baseball magnate of Fort Wayne and Clarence Jessup carry, Richmond next season will be in the best baseball league thaV- has ever been organized in thia state. Mr. Mautner who organized the present Central,. League and the defunct In terstate, League has reason to believe, as h;tve many other baseball men that th Central League will not be in ex istence next season. If this be true Mautner intends to take some of the clubs now in the Central League and w ith other cities In this state and just across the Ohio line, form a new league. It is to Wr of eight clubs. Mautner is very enthusiastic over his project and has written Clarence Jessup four letters 'about it. He will be here the latter part of. this month or the first of ne"xt to feel the pulse of Richmond business men and base ball fans. , , , The Cities In Circuit. ; The cities from which Mautner will form his league are: Fort Wayne, South Bend. Terre Haute, EvnnsvMe, Hamilton, Springfield, Dayton, Mun cie, Anderson, Vincennes and Rich- 1 mond. He has, communicated with baseball men In all these cities, and has his organization well under way. The present Central League has not made money this year on account of the long jumps that many of the teams have to make, Mautener's pro-, posed circuit includes cities which can support minor league ball and which are so situated that the trips of the team would not le so expen sive as to eat up all the profits. . Jessup Has Signed Players. Mr. Jessup, who returned horn from Saginaw Michigan last week has 'personal contracts - with ten fast ball players for next season. These men and some more whom Jessup .intends . to sign will' play wherever he does. Jessup said last night that he already had promise of financial support to the extent of $2,500 and he can se cure a ground suitable " to be mado into a first class ball park. .Jessup is rather 'reluctant about Investing much money In baseball, however, un less assurred that he can play Sunday ball, and in some way charge for it. He believes that week day ball, with' the games beginning at 3: 30, in a park- where business and shop men could reach it easily would not bo a losing proposition, while with tl Sunday receipts added to it, the game would pay quite well. Jessup is very enthusiastic over the prospects " for the, new league, and feels confident that Richmond will be in it. Richmond people interested In base ball know of no one they would rath er see behind league baseball in this city than Clarence Jessup, While those not interested in the sport would per haps rather trust the management of the team to him than any other per son, on account of the excellent rec ord he has made as a manager and true sportsman, both in baseball and polo.
