Washington. Aug. 21. — The Negro federal troops have been ordered out of Texas. Instead of going; to Port Rlnggold, which Is about one hundred miles up the Rio Grande from Fort Brown, the battalion of the Twenty-fifth In fantry has been ordered to Fort Reno, Okla. This action 19 In accordance with the direction of the President, and also is recommended by General McCaskey, commanding the Department of Texas. By direction of the President, also, General J. Franklin Bell, chief of staff, will make a thorough investigation of the whole Browns ville affair and report to the President. Fort Brown is to be abandoned. The company of the Twenty-sixth Infantry which was sent there to-day win not stay long. Its duty is to pack up all the movable government property, which will be shipped to other posts, when the troops will be ordered away. As the language of the order will state. Fort Brown will be temporarily abandoned and left in charge of a caretaker, which is the usual course when any military post is abandoned, but It Is understood that the temporary abandon ment will be permanent. The investigation now under way will be con tinued by Major Blocksom. and the Waj Depart ment authorities state that every effort will be made to find out the facts and fix the responsi bility for the disturbance, and that any soldiers found guilty will be punished. General Ainsworth to-day made public a tele gram from Major Blocksom. It has been for warded to President Roosevelt at Oyster Bay. The dispatch is as follows: Brownsville. Tex.. August 20. 1906. I The Military Secretary. United States Army. Washington, D. C. Causes of disturbance are racial. People did I not desire colored troops here and showed they thought them inferior socially by certain slights and denial of privileges at public bars. etc. ! Soldiers resented this. There were several in- i dividual encounters between soldiers and citi zens. About midnight of August 13 a party of sol- j diers. probably, nine to fifteen, made raid through several squares of town, firing seventy- ; five to hundred and fifty shots, killing a bar tender and dangerously wounding lieutenant of police. They also fired into several houses, where women and children narrowly escaped be- I ing shot. Raid lasted from eight to ten min utes; claim made that citizens fired first, but I believe without foundation; although the act probably preconcerted, do not think command ing officer could have foreseen. Citizens cannot Identify Individual raiders and authorities have made no demand for them. Investigation now going on has as yet die- i covered none. Commanding officer to-day in- ! vited a committee of tb,ree citizens to assist In J conducting investigation. People are still In a I state of great nervous tension and men nearly I all carry arms openly at night. Women and ; children still frightened. I consider it necessary to remove colored troops; the sooner the better, i While now apparently under perfect control, an : entire company Is on guard each day; a great I strain, with little prospect of relief; differences between soldiers and citizens are Irreconcilable. Fuller report about investigation will be made In regular course. BLOCKSOM, Major.

My friends can do me no greater ser vice than to allow him to continue." When he had closed, Roger Sullivan took the platform in his own defence. He was greeted with the most tumultuous applause. He said, in opening: "You have witnessed the spectacle on this platform of an individual seeking to gratify his personal grudge and drag it Into this convention. He came here to gratify his spleen, hatred and malice against me. "You're a liar!" came from the Dupage dele gation. Instantly a Sullivan delegate sprang for tha speaker, and it took half a dozen policemen to stop the fight. Order was finally restored, and just as Sullivan began to speak, two men. clutch- Ing each other by the throat, staggered through the door on the opposite side of the hall. It took a platoon of police to drag them out of the hall. BUYS PHONE RIGHTS. President of Consolidated Confirms Rumor— sso,ooo,ooo the Price? Buffalo, Aug. 21.— 8. G.

Parties are essential to the proper working of our politi cal institutions. The fight is to free the parties from just such men as Murphy. To deprive them of their control of the executive machinery, to restore It to the discharge of the functions for which it was created, vis: the effective expression of the will of the people who compose the party. When this is done we shall have, leaders and not bosses. We shall then have conventions of real dele gates, seeking to determine whom the people want placed In nomination. We shall have can didates and public officers in whose choice the people's voice has been potent and who wfj IM that their responsibility is to the people and not I to some political boss who created them. HEARST ISSUES STATEMENT. . Mil Hearst took notice of Murphy's remarks by saying that ho had no Interest in factional ! disputes In Tammany Hall, and that the decla . rations for or against him were merely for effect : in the coming primaries. He reiterated that he j was against boss rule in politics. ' and added I that he was opposed to the Murphy and Me 1 Carrens and to the Sullivans and McClellans and I the "kind of polities they all represented." and ; also to the Ryans and Belmonts and "their . ' Jeromes In office." Mr. Hearst's statement follows: I have no interest whatever in the factional I disputes of Tammany Hall. These declarations I for or against me are nothing more than at tempts to influence votes in primary contests.. t Over three months ago I gave an interview to i "The Brooklyn Eagle. " defining my position, which I have not altered. I said: 'McCarren may be for me. as reported, but I am not for McCarren. I regard him strictly ! as a corporation representative, and not as & I Democrat. I understand his motives in giving the i impression that he is for me. They are wholly ! selfish. McCarren believes that I may have some | elements of strength with the people, and he hopes to profit by it through having it appear that he favors my nomination for some office. . • I don't mind saying that it will be a mighty bad thins for both Murphy an.i McCarren to be •for me" if I am declared elected as Mayer. It is absurd to talk of a combination between then* men and myself. I have not sought their sun port in any way and never shall do so." I repeat now that I am absolutely and un alterably >pp.«s?(J to the Murphys and the Me- ■ Carrens, ana also to the Sullivans and the Me- Clellans, and to the kind of politics that they at! represent. I am opposed to boss rule in politics. 1 am opposed to corporation control of parties through machines, and the fact that a boss or a machine declares for me does not alter my atti tude in any particular. lam also opposed to the Ryans and the Belmonts and their Jeromes in politics, to the corrupt use of wealth to debauch the ballot and to the purchase of puppets la office. ■• V '- I am opposed to these paid puppets in offle/ who serve their corporation masters slavish! and shamelessly through their whole term of of flee, and only develop a semi-sense of decency and a pretended regard for the people when art election is impending. The country needs a purifying independent movement, because th« old parties are Infested with the vermin of bosses. corruptlonlsfc? and rascals In office, who mouth empty words about civic righteousness while the dollars of their cor poration masters are jingling in their pockets. Mr. Roosevelt says th« people need a "square deal." I would add that to have a square deal they must have a new deal, for nearly all the cards in the old political packs are marked by I the corporation*, and dirty and dog-eared from i the corrupt uses to which they have been put. MCLEI.LAX HOME SEPTEMBER S. Mayor McClellan will be home on September S. His friends noe^ admit that he made a mistake to go away at all. as it left Murphy free Handed to work with the district leaders. The Mayor's friends also say that the present is a battle to the political death either of Murphy or the Mayor, and that the amenities of politics wul to some extent be disregarded. There la talk of sending the Mayor to the state convention on ft Keenan proxy and let him do part of hie own fighting on the floor of the convention. * Jerome also may go. He and Patrick Keenan are warm personal friends, and it is said that the City Chamberlain. In the interest of fair play, has as sured both the District Attorney and the Mayor that they can go to the state convention if the* want to. * Tammany will send 105 delegates to the con vention, which will consist of 430 delegates. The Tammany delegation, therefore, constitutes near ly one-third of the convention. Erie already la pledged to Hearst, and Rensselaer and Onetda are ready to fall in line.
