Tentage was carried tor the battalion, and also three Colt guns. The two sections followed the regular through train, which left here at 9 o'clock t^-night. The tiattallon attracted little attention, as the transfer was not looked for.

C^jvernor Taft has Informed all the members of the Palma Cabinet that he would appoint ministers in about ten day*; in the mean while the «üb-secretaries are acting. It is believed ♦hat some of the er-members of the Cabinet wili be reinstated, notably Fonts y Sterling, Secretary of the Treasury.

The story published in the United States that a number of American marines had been kiUed . by insurgents is declared by Governor Taft and the rebel commanders to be without foundation. Colonel Burnett, the ranking marine officer, is •In command of the battalion pent to Clenfuesos. "With him are Major Theodore P. Kane and Ma jor Williams. _ The first landing of the force to garrison. Camp Columbia will be at f>:3o o'clock to-morrow I morning. The coming ashore of these men. as wcil a 6 the arrival of some six thousand soldiers from the United States, Is not considered locally to intimate any hostile purpose. Governor Taft paid to-night that he did not expect any trouble, and that the bringing in of these forces was chiefly to restore confidence In business circles, especially among foreigners. The American .troops -will r.ot be paraded, and their movements .■will be as unostentatious as possible. They will be quartered in permanent barracks in the same manner that they are distributed at home in time of peace. Dr». Flnlay and Barrett, the chief health offi cers of Cuba, and Dr. Lopez, the health officer of Havana, conferred to-night with Governor Taft for tho purpose of arranging extra meas ures looking to the extermination of mosquitoes, 'or. In othei words, to guard against yellow fever. There are Fix cases of fever in Havana, and tlfls causes Eome apprehension in spite of the sanitation work done last summer. The re lieving of the crowded condition of the men on the warships, through sending numbers ashore, will lessen the danper of fever In the squadron. Governor Taft has received telegrams from provincial and municipal authorities throughout the Island declaring allegiance to the provisional government. Many of these communications were couched In extravagant terms of fealty. Governor AJeman of Santa Clara province tele graphs that he had already resigned to the PaJma administration, but had received no anpwer. He now resigns again to Governor Taft. and says if this resignation is not promptly Bccepted he wants to know why. General Funston estimated to-night that from It.QCO to 20.000 horses not belonging to the rebels BfC now in their hands. This large number is accounted for by the fact that thousands of «xtrii. horses w«r» picked up on marches. THINK CRISIS IS OVER. Officials Do Xot Expect Trouble — Troops Sent South. JFrcm TI-e Tribune Bureau.] Washington, Sept. SO.— President Roo«evelt Immediately upon his return to Washington to morrow will discuss the Cuban difficulties and measures to maintain th<» provisional govern ment on tho Island with mejnbera of his Cabinet and officers of the War and Navy departments, j The President will arrive from Oyster Bay be tween 4 and .p». p » o'clock In the afternoon. Conferences will be held at the White House In which the details of affairs in Cuba will be gone over at length. The President while at Oyeter Bay hns been In close touch with the situation in Cuba through reports made directly ' to him by Secretary Taft. but the Fcene of ac tiritleß will now be shifted to Washington. The evident satisfaction w;th which Secretary Taft's proclamation establishing the provieonal gov ernment has iKon met by leaders of both parties In Cuba, and the coondeaoa which Its terms have Inspired is regarded as favorable for an adjust m«nt of the difficulties, and officials consider that the crisis has passed. The movement of the army, the number of troops ordered, and the se lection of a provisional Governor to succeed Sec retary Taft are de'ails, however, which the President will desire to take up immedlatey, and these questions will be considered at the first Cabinet meeting. , MAT RELIEVE MR. TAFT. Though the President has the utmost confi dence in the ability of Secretary Taft to deal with the situation, it is beUeved he will desire it relieve him as promptly as possible to enable him to return to Washington. Secretary Root who returned to Washington to-night, and whose familiarity with conditions In <'üba through experience at the head of the War De partment when the Island was under military occupation, will be reliod r , on by the President for advice <m bll rabwqu*nt steps In Cuba Preparations for the movement of troops are going on apace at the War Department Though Sunday, tho War Department wa open all day and the «ree«ta* officers of the department were at their desks, displaying an activity not equalled Bj»M the Spanlsh-Amorl . an Wnr .

The War Department officials hope to have the Fumner ready to sail on Monday night, and the vessel should reach Havana In ninety-six hours. The first landing of regular troops in Cuba, to relieve the navy, may b«- expected on Friday. Most of tha troapa in the first expedition will •ail from n. wport New*. .\ pack train and two field batteries will sail fro Tampa. Th-- War Department has aM arrangements made for a second and third expedition, but there is no ex pectation that further troops will be called for •oon. Acting Secretary Oliver advised Secretary Taft to-day of the movement of troops.

Some casfs of yellow fever have developed in Havana, and Secretary Taft is concerned lest the disease attack the troops which are to be assembled there. All possible precautions will be taken to prevent elckness, however. General Humphrey, quartermaster general, practically closed arrangements to-day for the transports which are to convey the expedition to Cuba. The ships will be ready for departure before the troops have been mobilized at New port News. The Bumner will carry commissary supplies for the flrrt expedition for thirty days. In ad dition to the necessary supplies for her crew and the men she will carry en route to Cuba. The supplies for the expedition to be carried by the Bumner will aggregate more than 200 tons of regular rations. In addition to about 100 tons of sale stores, including canned milk, canned fruits and chewing and smoking tobacco. CommlSßary General Sharp will not cease his work on the departure of tho first expeditionary force for Cuba. As soon as the troops are land ed another full supply of commissary stores for thirty days win be sent to Cuba by a merchant liner. One week later a third supply for thirty days will be forwarded. Tho object of sending the supplies so rapidly Is to get them into the depots at Havana and have them handled with out confusion. Announcement was made at the Navy De partment to-day that the cruiser Dcs Moines, which, a few days ago, was ordered from Ha vana to Clenfuegos, Cuba, to reinforce the Mari etta and the Cleveland, had been ordered to Santiago, Cuba, and already had sailed. The order for the movement of the Dcs Moines was given by Secretary Taft, and naval officials here do not know the precise significance of it. It Is believed, however, to be a precautionary measure and not because of any disturbance at Santiago. The Dcs Moines has a considerable number of marines on board. To take the place of the Dcs Moines at Clenfuegos, the Tacoma called to-day from Havana. The Prairie sailed to-day from Boston and the battleship Texas from Norfolk, both with de tachments of marines on board, for Havana. The former carries 160 bluejackets and 180 ma rines, and the latter 226 bluejackets and 200 marines. They are expected to reach Havana on Thursday at the latest. The cruiser Brooklyn, with a large number of marines, will sail from League Island, Philadel phia, on Tuesday morning. RUSHING SUPPLIES EAST.

OCTOBER I^JL^ HEARST PILL TOO BITTER Continued from flrtt par*- the ticket. Ex-Mayor Dillon, who Is known far and wide In Westchester as the "war horse of Democracy," said: "I am still a Democrat and will vote for Hearst." Another prominent Democrat who Is against Hearst Is H. T. Dykman, of White Plains. Mr. Dykman Is the son of the late. Justice Jackson O. Dykman. of the Supreme Court. A canvass made among the workingmen of Weßtchester County also shows a lack of en thusiasm for Hearst. Many men who favored him a month ago as an independent candidate look upon his present nomination as a surrender to Murphy find the other corrupt bosses he has denounced and will cast their votes for Hughes. A prominent labor leader said: We expected that we would be able to vote for Mr. Hearst and got rid of the bosses, but now that he has gone over to them he has fur felted our support. He has shown by his action that his passionate appeals to us have been false and hollow. Most of the labor union men I meet will vote for Mr. Hughes. He should have the support nf every man who holds a life In surance policy or pays a gas bill In the state of New York. Hearst has been telling us what he has done for us, but the Republicans have gone him one better. They have nominated the man who did It. HEAKST AFTER M'CARREN. Will Name Judiciary Ticket to Fight Kings Leader's Men. Definite announcement was made by the Hearst men lnst nlerht that an Independent judiciary ticket would bo run In Kinss County. War to the knife ag-atnat Senator McCarren's candidates will be the word from the Independence League. The condition there Is in marked contrast to the deal between Murphy and Hearst, now undergoing completion, in which the Judiciary of New York County will be parcelled out among Tammany men and Hearstltes. Officially, there "has been no solution of the Judi ciary problem In New York County." The tentative ticket put forth by the Hearst crowd last night contained Republicans as well as straight Independence League men. It 6 make-up is such that they reason that many Republicans and Independent Democrats, fearing the McCarren domination of Kings, will vote for the Independence League ticket, rather than help perpetuate Mc- Cnrren's control. McCarren will nominate a straight Democratic ticket at the Judicial conven tions for Klnss County to-day. Henry A. Powell, who made a speech for Hearst at the Independence League State Convention, heads the ticket which the Hearst men will put out in Brooklyn against the McCarren ticket. HeanV F. Cochrane, Charles Frederick Adams. Borough Pres ident Coler's secretary, and Colonel Alexander S. Bacon are other Independence League men who are slated for Justiceships. County Judge Frederick E. Grace is a Republican, but the Hearst crowd will name him. Surrogate James S. Church, ex- District Attorney Nlemann of Suffolk County and Judge Thomas complete the list discussed last nlpht. The New York County Committee of the Indepen dence League met at the Gilsey House yesterday and Indorsed the Democratic state ticket, from Hearst down. Word was received at the Hearst headquarters that the Trade Council of Watertown had passed resolutions commending the candidacy of Mr. Hearst, and that similar action had been takrn by the central labor body at Ogdensburg. Mr. Hearst held conferences yesterday with Max Ihmsfn, Clarence J. Shearn and other of his politi cal lieutenants. He will make a speaking trip through Brooklyn to-night, travelling by automobile from one hall to another. With him will go Lewis Stuyvesant Chanler, his running mate on the Demo cratic-Independence League ticket, which was born at Buffalo. Speeches will be made, by them at Congress Hall, No. 2692 Atlantic avenue, corner of Vermont street; Metropolitan, Saenger Hall, Pltkln avenue and Wat kins street. Brownsville; Prospect Hall. Prospect avenue and Fifth avenue. South Brooklyn; Pal ace Rink, No. H Grand street, and the Brooklyn Casino, No. 17 Selsel street. To-morrow Mr. Hearst will depart late In the day for Fonda, where on Wednesday he 'vill speak at the Montgomery County Fair. fm Thursday Mr. Hearst will apeak at the Union County Fair at Hemlock, near Lavonla. This fair represents the counties of Ontario, Steuben. Liv ingston and Monroe. Mr. Hearst and his lieutenants will go to Chat ham, Columbia County, on Friday, where he will ppeak at the Chatham Fair. He will return to New York on Saturday. Meeting's will probably be held both in Manhattan and Brooklyn on Saturday and Sunday. Mr. Hearst's next upstate trip will begin prob ably about October 9. Representative William Lamar, of Florida, who has consulted with many Southern Democrats on the Hearst campaign, will speak fit some of the Hearst meetings. According to the Hearst press bureau, he will express the "gratitude of the Southern fruit growers for Mr. Hearst's work on the Railroad Rate bill." HUGHES PLANS HIS FIGHT Spends Quiet Day Thinking Over Speech of Acceptance. Charles E. Hughes, Republican candidate for Governor, spent a quiet day at home yesterday. In the morning he and his father attended St. Paul's Methodist Episcopal Church, almost di rectly across the street from his home. He Is not a member of this church, but attends ser vices there from time to time because of its nearness. Many personal friends called on him In the afternoon, and he had a few word« with each visitor. Much time was spent In pondering his speech of acceptance of the nomination which he will deliver at the notification ceremony on Wednes day night and In working up material for use in his speaking trips about the state. Tele grams continued to pour In on him yesterday, but Mr. Hughes has been forced to give up his habit of answering personally each communica tion addressed to him. Their number and tho urgent demands on his time forbid it. If the new state headquarters at No. 12 East 30th etr^et are In condition Mr. Huphe<= will be at his rooms there this afternoon, ready to re '■elve visitors and take personal char j of his campaign. He will, in all probability, visit his law offVce for a few minutes In the morning, but most of his time will be spent at the political headquarters. Chairmnn Woodruff will be thero, and Senator Page will consult with them on plans for the campaign in New Y<>rk County. President Parsons of the New York County Committee will return to this city to-day, and he, too, will visit the candidate to talk over the situation. In all probability the Judgeship situa tion will be taken up b> the county committee leader and liis lieutenants and the state chair man and leaders In a day or two. The state committee will hold a meeting in this city on Wednesday, prior to the notification of the candidates, and at th.it time probably will s.-tt!.- details of the up-state campaign Mr Hughes Intends to spend practically all his time between now and election in speaking trips the major part of hi-; efforts being given over to the up-state counties Lieutenant Governor Bruce nlso will make long stumping trips. Secretary Bhaw has promised to speak through tho state and Attorney General Mayer will do much cam paign speaking. At present all efforts are »v ing bent on the first meeting of the campaign at Carnegie Hall on Friday night, and the meet- Ings in Brooklyn on Saturday, at all of which Mr. Hughes will be the cnlef speaker. HEARST DISPLEASES LABOR MEN. In the small hours of yesterday morning the In dependent Labor Party adjourned a convertion which it had started late on Saturday night in Beethoven Hall, No. -lo nth Btreet, called to hear the report of the committee appointed a week ago to suggest nominees.

To this list might be added Indictments against the Standard Oil Company, indictments brought in various nnrta of the country and amounting altogether to between nine and ten thousand counts. The fact that the law provides an ex treme penalty of $2D.000 for every count proved has led to the reports that the Standard would be broken up, for were the Department of Jus tice to prove and the courts to assess the ex treme penalty on every count, the aggregate fines Imposed on the Standard would amount to about 5200,000.000. Of course. it is hardly the expectation of the department officials that they will be able to prove every count or that the courts will, in every Instance, Inflict the extreme penalty. Ab to what the effect will be on the Standard the officials do not profess to know, nor to care, beyond their determination to en force the law and to demonstrate to the trusts that Infractions of the law -will inevitably prove unprofitable. MAY JAIL. OFFICIALS. With the new Railway Rate law. which re stores the Imprisonment penalty repealed by the Elkins law, there is reason to believe that numerous officials of the law breaking trusts will have to serve terms in Jail, perhaps in the penitentiary. All summer Frank B. Kellogg, of St. Paul, and Charles B. Morrison, of Chicago, have been diligently working as special counsel for the government, running down cases against the Standard and securing Indictments, and whlla the officials of the Department of Justice are unwilling to talk of the prospects their high praise of the special counsel demonstrates the effectiveness of the work accomplished. The case of the St. Louis Bridge Terminal Company Is one of the Interesting forms which the government's prosecution of trusts haa taken. It is alleged that certain railways run ning into St. Louis have acquired control of all the bridges across the Mississippi at St. Louis atid are maintaining a monopoly In restraint of trade, a monopoly which the government has deemed It wise to prosecute. As already stated, the Republican candidate for Governor of New York, Mr. Hughes, together with Mr. Simpson, of New York, has been en gaged in the prosecution of the Coal Trust, and H. \V. Taft. a brother of the Secretary of War, with Messrs. Levy and Hill, la engaged in the special prosecution of the Tobacco Trust. Enough has been said to prove how thoroughly in earnest the President was when he said that the people must proceed to eliminate the evil to interstate commerce In the conduct of the great corporations, and when the history of this administration shnll coma to be written the thoroughness with which the anti-trust laws have been enforced will present a record never before equalled, while the opportunity of again equalling it will have passed because the trusts will have been taught their lesson, a lesson they are not likely to forget unless the time should come when they have confidence that the Presi dent or tho Congress would sustain tnem and their lawless methods as against the people. The master mind of this administration, the mind which has furnished the energy and the encouragement in the breaking up of trust evils. Is that of the President himself, although he has been ably seconded by the Republican majori ties in both houses of Congress and has enjoyed the advantage of having an efficient and con scientious Attorney General. Mr. Moody has co operated with the President in every possible way and he has, moreover, organized a force in the Department of Justice which Is remarkable for its energy and efficiency. The man who Is in epoclal charge of the anti-trust cases is Mil ton D. Purdy, assistant to ihe Attorney General. Mr. Purdy is a quiet, determined man, who says little and works hard. He it is who receives the reports of special counsel, directs the numer ous District Attorneys, and whose brain and de votion to duty have made possible the good work already accomplished and the beneficent results which the near future is certain to bring forth.

Oct. 16.— But what Is Murphy? A man of shrewdness, no doubt, but not of political genius— else he would not have so multiplied his enemies. He must have had back of him some keener and more sinister power before he could have riveted liis grasp of the Tammany organiza tion. He nuiPt have had back of him pome great force of corrupt finance before he could have begun gathering In his profitable contracts. What was that power and that force? Who but Thomas F. Ryan, . . . the most dangerous because the richest and most daring, fore? In the politics of New York City to-day.— New York American. Friday Nnv 17. — The people demand that the men who froed Krup.

Sir: Th« Democratic State Convention at Buffalo has stultllled every principle of honest Democracy and nominated a political adventurer for Governor, a man entirely without the pale of the party. Our Tammany delegation was simply purchased like a drove of cattle and driven to the pnlltliieJ shambles to be slaughtered— sold by the glnmlll keeper who is the leadef of Tammany Hall. Ab a Tammany Democrat I protest. We have honest members In our organization, and wo will not "stand and de liver." There are thousands of good, stanch Tam many Hall Democrats who will not ratify the sals at Buffalo, and who do not want to turn New York Stnto Into one vast dive! A serious hmue now confronts th* state of New York, i.l- r,' 1 ■of potttteal lines. That problem is that tho «o.>.i etttaena of this state must deliver their state from the hands of a notorious political adventurer and renegade. And. too. every honest citizen of the state has a spectacle presented la Now York State politics not equalled In the palmy days of Boss Tweed! An open barter and sale of the Democratic party ->f the whole state of New York has been made— lnstead of the city of n,,w York alone, as In the days of the- unscrupulous Tweed, whom the late Samuel J. TUden vanquished. We have- the ipectacle of a barrel open at rota ends, lying on tts etde. and those who are dispens ing the contt-ntß lying about everything- el3e, Yet thai mastodonlc uKKreirutlon of political corruption expects to appeal to e> -r\ anarchical element of the state, and with the unlimited use of money take over the government O New York State: Fellow citizens, what are we going to do about It? Are we to He supinely and »aa our b«lovod «t*to ruined? Nol a thousand times, noi TaUJiINEUKIX. New Ywrkj l*ej»t. W, JMa, ~^-;-- What Hearst Thought of Mr. Hughes, Whom He Now CalU ■„ Ryan's Attorney. In an editorial In "The American** of December 80. 1906. William Randolph Hearst said: No one in New York State will question the excel lenco o* the work done by the counsel for the peo ple, Mr. Charles E. Hughea. He haa drawn from OM management of the. companies undsr litigation admissions which have damned them In tha eyes -of the public. He has done perhaps everything that could be done during the ttma at his disposal. If thera should b<» no extension of time. Mr. Hughes can retire with the perfect certainty that his work ha* had tho approval and aroused the cooimendatioa of the people. Several weeks earlier— October this elltorial paragraph also was printed In "The American": ... And what was the first act of ths Repub lican boss after deserting tha fusion so feared oi Ryan? To reach down Into the tribunal now lsvastigat lng the infamies of the Insurance companies and strive to take away the brilliant and uncompro mising investigator who Is following the path of financial perfidy and crime that may lead finally to Ryan's door. It is to tho everlasting honor or Charles Evana Hughes that he saw through th!a lr.trlarue and re* tised to be the dupe- of Ryan and Odall. RAP M. O. HUGHES MEN.
