ALARM OVER MOROCCO.
France Anxious Regarding the Span
ish Plans.
Paris, Oct. s.— The preparations for the extension
of Spain's operations in Morocco, Involving the
sending of heavy reinforcements, are causing in
creasing uneasiness in Paris. The "Petit Parisian." •
a Journal owned by M. Dupuy. the Minister of
Commerce, in what is believed to be- an inspired
article, says to-day that Spain's programme seems
to go beyond the object originally communicated V
the powers. It provokes apprehension in Europe,
especially in London and Paris. The colonial au
thorities of Algeria have informed Paris of the
existence of fanatical excitement in the interior
and speak of danger along the Algerian frontier
if General Marina, the commander of the Spanish
forces in Morocco, attempts to push his expedition
southward from Zeluan. In conclusion the paper
intimate* that the reports from the interior of
Spain indicate that there is grave danger of serious
trouble at home as soon as the country Is denuded
of troops.
The Spanish Embassy here is under heavy guard
n.ght and day. as it is feared that the Barcelona
revolutionists are plotting to kill the Marquis del
Muni, the Spanish Ambassador, as a means of forc
ing th« government to abandon its repressive meas
ures in Catalonia.
The marquis denied to-day that Spain had
changed her intentions as to Morocco. H- said that
Spain was seeking only to pacify the country
around Melilla and that she had only fifty thou
sand troops in Morocco, instead of seventy thou
sand.
'La Libert^" publishes a dispatch from Madrid
to-day saying that Spain is preparing a note to
the powers, explaining the necessity of extending
her operations against the Rifts. The correspond
ent adds that ten thousand men have been concen
trated at Cents for the march to Tetuan.
MOORS FLOCK TO AID OF RIFFS.
Madrid. Oct. 6. — The "Imparclal" confirms to-day
die report that the Moors south of Zeluan have re
ceived heavy reinforcements from the Beni-Bur
riagnel and Azza tribes. Riffs to the number of ten
thousand are now intrenching themselves on the
surrounding Zeluan.

TITLES FOR MORGANATIC WIFE.
Countess Married to Heir to Austrian Throne
Made a Duchess.
Vienna. Oct. s.— Emperor Francis Joseph has
raiseJ Countess Sophia Choteck yon Chotkova, the
morganatic v.:fe of the heir apparent. Archduke
Francis Ferdinand, to the rank of duchess with
the title of highness. This elevation of rank coin
cides with the announcement that the German Em
peror has invited the Archduke Francis Ferdinand
and his wife to pay a visit to the Berlin court in
November.
This is thr first time that the Emperor has con
ferred the ducal title on any one. The wife of the
heir to the throne has recently been received toon
and more into the inner circles of the Imperial
£arr.i!y, and the opinion is expressed that the pres
ent elevation will not he the last. The status of
the Court has not been altered by the new title,
which will still rank below the archduchesses.

MIX MAY WIN THE CUP
E.rpert* Believe American Balloon
Still in Air.
ZUricb, Oct 6.— The international balloon con
test for the Gordon Bennett Cup lies, accord
ing to reckoning here, between Le Blanc, Mess
ner and Mix. Professor Maurer calculates Lm
Blanc's distance at 834 kilometres and Mess
ner's at 828 kilometres. Mix's distance is not
known. Meckel's Is figured at 745 kilometres.
A linguistic puzzle was received to-night from
Mix. which. It appears, came from Wilischobis.
by way of Vienna. It was partly in French and
partly in jumbled Hungarian. It was diaci
phered to read: 'This morning was at Jicin,
Hungary; raining: forced to descend and to
make use of the guide rope. All well."
Experts are of the opinion that the America,
Mix's balloon, is still in the air. The dispatch,
however, is a mystery. 6ince it was filed at
2:40 on Monday afternoon at Jicin. upper Bo
hemia, at the same time as Mix's original dis
patch from Kletta, which was dropped from his
balloon and received here on Monday night.
Messner in the course of his voyage attained
a height of 6,000 metres.
The Belgian pilot, Goert*. landed on Monday
morning near HQbnerwasser, Bohemia, while
Meckel. of Germany, made a successful descent
on Monday afternoon in Trencsin, Hungary.
Messner. one of the Swiss pilots, landed this
afternoon naar Kreuzburg. Silesia. Be&uclair,
one of the Swiss contestants, stopped this after
noon at Possnltz. in Silesia. Le Blanc landed
at Zarzriva. Hungary, yesterday afternoon at
2:30 o'clock.
The Frenchmen, Dubonnet and Le Blanc, had
exciting experiences in their flight. Dubonnet's
balloon Condor, the guide rope of which was cut
after it had caught in a tree, struck a house on
the mountain side. The balloon was torn, but
continued. Le Blanc made a perilous descent
on the Carpathian Mountains, and his balloon
vras abandoned.
FOUR BALLOOXS LAND.
Six Bags Still Up in St. Louis Race
for Lahm Cup.
St. Louis, Oct s.— The balloon University City,
competing in the lahm Cup race, which started
from St. Lonis yesterday, alighted safely near
MoorsvlUe. twelve miles south of Chilllcothe. Mo.,

in an air line. The Hoosler, which waa disqualified,
landed at 1:20 o'clock this morning at Russellville,
Mo.
The balloon Missouri landed safely at 8 o'clock
this morning at Hibernia. Mo., tight miles east of
Jefferson City and 100 miles west of St. Louis. The
Peoria landed eleven miles northeast of Cairo. 111..
at 7:30 this morning, according to a private dispatch
received in Peoria.
The other balloons are spread over Missouri in
two general groups, one following the Missouri
River toward St. Joseph and Kansas City and the
other travelling southwest toward the Ozark Moun
tains.
Tha balloons left here yesterday afternoon. A
southerly surface current cave them a false start,
taking them across the Mississippi River into Illi
nois, bu*. when they ascended into higher altitudes
they recrossed the river.
The eight balloons In the 80.000 cubic feet class us
they started from St. Louis were as follows:
Cleveland, J. H. Wade. Jr.. owner and pilot; A.
H. Morgan, aid; ascended at 4:42 o'clock.

forty thousand cubic feet class. James Bemis, of
St. Louis, piloted the Peoria and ilarlow B. Spen
cer, of St. Louis, handled the Missouri.
Unidentified balloons were reported to-day from
Steelviile and Iberia, in the Ozark Mountains dis
trict, to the southwest, and from Tlpton. due west.
The St. Louis No. 3 was so close to the ground
at Booneville, one hundred and forty-five miles
northwest, that the occunants easily learned their
location. Another big balloon raced with a train
near Macon. Mo., easily distancing it.
The balloons were expected to remain In the air
forty hours, and as the day was not hot, the aero
nauts would not have to use much ballast. The
University City was in bad condition when it sailed
from here, many patches being put on the gas bag
as it was being inflated.
The winner of the race for balloons of forty
thousand cubic feet capacity must be decided by
official measurement by the St. Louis Aero Club.
The Peorla's pilot. J. W. Bemis, reported that he
crossed the Mississippi River four times and the
Ohio three times.

COMMIT 700 ILLEGALLY.
Laic Affecting Vermont Insane De
clared Defective.
Montpelier, A*t.. Oct 5. — Fully ■even hundred
inmates of the state insane a.sylum at Water
bory and at the Brattleboro retreat for the in
>;in<* were committed illegally, according to a
on han.'led down to-day by the Supreme
Court of Vermont, which holds that the law
tinder whi^h commitments were made was de
fective until In.-t y.ar Although the commit
ments of all the five hundred patients at Water
bury and upward of two hundred and tifty rit
BrattlPboro :ire void, the decision of the court
<iocs not mean tha.t many releases will follow.
In fact, further l«sral proceedings will be neces
sary before any patient not cured tan be set at
liberty.
Last year the state Legislature passed a law
providing that persons supposed to be insane
shall have notice that it Is intended to confine
them and have the right of a trial by Jury.
The new law could not be made retroactive, and
therefore did not affect those already in the
asylum.

a Room in the Basement.
A license has been Issued for the sale of liquor
in a room in the basement of the New Theatre.
Regarding this Winthrop Ames, director of the
theatre, said last night:
"This license was granted not to the New The
atre, but to the restaurateur who has the re
freshment concession. The license is confined to
one room in the basement of the New Theatre,
the only entrance to which is in 63d street, consid
erably more than two hundred feet from the near
est entrance to the School of Ethical Culture, and
accordingly not within the prohibition of the law.
"By reason of the failure of the amendment pro
posed last winter the New Theatre was compelled
to abandon its original plan with reference to its
cafe and restaurant. Under the original plan
there was to have been a restaurant on the roof
as well as a cafe in the main part of the bouse.
It has been necessary to abandon all this. The
sale of liquor will be confined to the one room In
the basement, and the room on the roof will be
used for rehearsals."

TAFT GREETS SOLDIERS
I oatlnued from flrac sag*.
comrade in attempting la initiate legislation
and to pioneer in the far distant islands of the
Pacific.
It is a great pleasure to be here in this unique
theatre and talk to a body of people who rep
resent the highest aspirations of a common
wealth. Professor Moses has alluded to the
fact that we are veering around to the sci
entists, whether it be in politics or in agricult
ure — did not mention theology, but it is a
fact that the universities of the land, and espe
cially such a one as this, placed so centrally
and embracing so large a student body, are com
ing to figure more and more with their influ
ence on the science of government and the
course of parties.
The business of the government Is not an
easy one when you are in it. There are ob
stacles and friction and difficulties that it is
not possible always to explain, but the ex
istence of which one who is in the middle of it
can affirm with great emphasis; and it is these
obstacles and difficulties and friction that are
not always appreciated by the critics, who do
not have the responsibilities. None the less,
the high standard set by those critics is of the
utmost use In lifting up government and lifting
up a people.
I like to affirm that I am an optimist, and an
optimist with respect to popular government.
We have to admit that on the whole the result
which is reached by reconciling and compromis
ing all the views of differing people is better
than if. we followed with literal fidelity the the
ory of any one person.
Popular government is justified and vindicated
on the theory that every — and by that I
mean those who in respect to a community are
similarly situated and affected by the same cir
cumstances — is better ablo In the Song run to
know what its interests are. and to look after
those interests, than the members of any other
class, however altruistic that other class may be.
and that being the foundation of popular gov
ernment, and it being impossible, therefore, for
any one class to give out laws for all. the neces
sary result of our government is compromise,
and' he i« a good citizen who recognizes that
necessary result, and who. when his own opinion
is not followed out as he would like to have it,
becomes what I remember your own distin
guished professor lectured on in the university
when I was here— "he must make himself a
good loser." He must play the game. He is
in popular government, and he has to take what
popular government give* him until by his in
fluence with the people who 'control he can lead
them in the direction which he would, and if
they do not go in that direction he has to play
ball with them and follow th->rn *
JUSTICE IN MATTER OF FREE TPADE
President Taft then referred to his association
with the University of California, which the*
members of the first Philippine Commission vis
ited on their way to the eastern archipelago.
He said:
We worked along: on the Philippine problem,
and I think we have achieved considerable
progress. We at least In ten years nave brought
about justice to those islands in the matter of
free trade between th« United States and those
gems of the Pacific.
I can well remember the fog. for in spite of
the bright sunlight of that day it was a fog that
we were looking Into as we left the Golden Gate
and turned the prow of our vessel toward tn-»
Philippines. We lid not know what it was tr«
were to meet. The future was dark and ob
scure, and if any man would have said that that
trip would land me in the Presidency of the
United States. I should have felt like charac
terizing him either as a falsifier or a man with
out sense.
But that Is it. Tou never can tell what th»
future is going to briny: about. It seemed a long;
way around to the White House to go out ten
thousand miles into the tropics, but that is
where It landed m*>; and as I started from
Berkeley, it delights me now that I have reached
that goal, if it can be called a goal, for I was
not wandering in that direction consciously. It
is a pleasure to me here to testify to the asso
ciation, one of the most important In my lif<»,
which I have, had with this grand old institution.

methods pursued by the CJvt! Service Commission
of New Rochelle in administering the Civil Service
law in that city A charge that advance informa
tion was given by the commission of questions pre
pared for an examination for inspector of public
works is dismissed.
The report says that Commissioner Vernea com
mitted a grave error In communicating to a candi
date, as a sample question of a former examina
tion, a question which had i>een embodied to »
paper prepared for an examination to be held, bat
holds "there is no evidence that he was) at taa

For this reason, and because errors w«r* mad- in
rating candidates after examination, th* Stats
Commission recommends that the eligible list estab

tors be cancelled and another examination h*M
when an appointment is to be made.
