The citizens be- K. gan decorating their houses yesterday aftor- noon, und the town woke np this morning a mass of red. white and blue. Highly decorated bicycles and wagons, placarded with pictures of Col. Roosevelt, wore aeon on every street. Over the door of an office building near the railroad station there is a large equestrian painting of the Colonel, and similar tributea are to be found all over town. The shopkeepers kept their curtains down to-day and joined the parading throng. Although the jubilee was scheduled to begin at 3 o'clock the out-of-towners began to poor In at noon. First came a delegation from Free port, then one from Rockvllle Centre, followed l by another Irom Olon Cove, while every train J brought In hundreds of people from the sur- W rounding towns and villages. Corporal J. O. Mullen and Private F. B. Payne of Troop C, rough riders, came over from Oreenwloh. Conn., to attend tho jubilee, and Sergt. Willis Fhysloe rode horsobaok all the war to Oyster Bay from Motitauk Point to be on hand, start ing two days ago. Two or three other rough riders rut In an appearance during the after l noon, and were immediately taken up and A lionized by the crowds. ft The first event of tho day was the parade of the Atlantic Steamer Company, headed br the .1 Oyster lay Band. The firemen wound up their I parade in tho grove, where nearly 2.500 per sons had gathered. On tho grand stand were all of the prominent citixcnB of this village. I District Attorney William J. Youngs. Towns- end D. Cock, and Maurice E. Townsend were f among the number. Ex-Mayor Oleason of V Long Island City and a host of New York city r folks were also present. The choirs of all of I the village churches wcro thereto sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" and other patriotlo I airs. Co!. Boosevelt arrived at 3:15 o'clock and immediately there was great enthusiasm. The '.ami tried in vain to muke its effort at " Hail to the Chief" hoard. With the Colonel came Mrs. Hoobovclt, two of their children and several friends. When the enthusiasm had subsided somewhat Mr. Cock introduce 1 the ltev. Wil t liam P. Eete. who offered apt ayer. Then the church choirs and the crowd sang " Tho Btur S, tigled Buuuer." after which Mr. Coek intro duced Col. Roosevelt. "YoU deserve the gratitude of the republic," he said to Col. Roosevelt. " and yon have it as well as the esteem and respect of your follow citizens. Friends, let me present the gallant and Intrepid Colonel of the rough riders. Col. Theodore Roosevelt." Col. Roosevelt said : "Mb. CHiuiMiN, Ladies and Gentlk v men: Next to the greeting given to me br my own regiment. I could appreciate nothing so much as a greeting from rou. my fellow towns men. Up to this time I have refused to speak anywhere, but in refusing I have told my friends that there would be an exception to the ' rule. You. my neighbors, you with whorn I have lived sinco I was very small, rou who have known me In many capacities, who know the evil as well as tho good of me. were the ex ception. I made up my mind that if you eared to hear me you certainly should. You should II have the first call. "I want at the very outaet to express mr ap preciation of the war in which this meeting was IU arranged. It is wholly without political sig nificance. It is exactly as with my regiment no politics or religion. Laughter.l Excuse me, but there is a proviso, all were good Americans, and all. according to their several creeds, served the I,ord as well as their eoun- try. We forgot politics when the transport hearing us to the front weighed anchor iu U Tamm I tut " This meeting to-day is only for me in a sec ondary sense. Primarily it islnhonorof ail the Americans who. during thu past few months, iffi have tried to uphold the flag. You can all rest free from any apprehension that I shall make 1 any political allusions in this speech. I shall not. I have caretullr refrained from talking politics since I returned from Cuba, and If you have seen any Interviews of a political charac ter with me, you must credit them to the Inter fl B viewers and not to mo. I disclaim them all. Ie "There used to be a man who owned a nom- it her of houses and who used to carry a brick L around in his pocket to show the quality of his houses. I have several bricks of rough riders here to-day. and one of them is our Color-Sergeant, who carried the flag with us through all of the fighting that we dicfln Cuba. Applause and cries of ' Let's see lilrul" Wait a minute and you shall see him. First I! 1 want to tell you. though, that of all our regi ment he was the man most exposed to danger and the man who, with the exception of my orderly, was closer to me all through the war than any other one of my men. 1 am now about to Inflict upon him more agony than the Spaniards ever could by making Color-Sergeant A Wright stand up." Sergt. Wright, tall and bronzed, stood with a sheepish look on his faae. and sat down luime- V dlately. evidently much embarrassed br tha l roar of applause that greeted him. OoL Roosevelt continued: I want to tell rou briefly what mr regiment was. We raised this regiment at San Antonio. Tex., and It was made sm. up primarily among the men of tho Southwest, the men whose life business it is to guard the great horned herds, tho mining prospectors. W and the hunters. They were all men skilled In w the nse of the rifle, accustomed to handling wild and dangerous horses, used to livlug In the open air, and knowing how to take care of themselves. It Is a question if thero ever waa before such a body of men to draw from for the rough material of soldiers. . "But I am particularly proud of the faet that my regiment waa made up of man from all section. We bad men from Maine to Oregon, men who lived In great cities of the East and man who bad never seen a largo city. We had men from the seacoast and men who had never seen a large body of water. It was one ', of the latter whom I heard orr oat to a com- v iade when his hat blew off as he stood on the deok of the transport: 'Ob. Jim, my hat's blown Into the oreek I' " With these men we had men who had left do'lar-a-dar jobs to fight and men who had been reared In luxury, but all good Americans l and anxious to show that there was no truth In the earing that It was a rich man's war and a poor manTa fight, and both onlr demanding the 'M ohance to face death for the honor of their native M land. They only asked to ba judged on their merits, and so ther were judged. "Ours was an American regiment, so Auier H lean that we had representatives of the mm original Americans among us. There were fifty men of pure Indian blood and they were aw among our very bei-t men. More than that, it was our good fortune, at the time of our tough- eat fight, to have at our right and left the boys of the Ninth and Tenth regular cavalry. These AM colored men, whom the Spaniards dubbed smoked Yankees.' we found to be a very good B oreud of Yankee, and every rough rider has for the men of those two regiments a feeling of BBM, hearty comradeship m Oar men knew little of the duties required WBB of them when ther were leathered together. bat they were all determined to learn, and MM there wasn't one who thought he knew all about it in advance. There were very few that needed to nave the sizes of their heads re duced, and they had the thing done In very mm thorough fashion, it was because of the way the men went at their work that the regiment was able to make the record It lid. I'll not MM pretend that I'm not proud of the regiment, for H we had that regiment armed, equipped, , mounted, then disruouu ted. on the transport in Cuba and through a victorious fight Inside of fiftr day. We had loet the eervlues of quarter of the man through the bullete of the enemy, and Mr aAdlMg canrtarbvea dJneooe te 1hf tint, til J a " -.- .: - Br-a the remaining half atood ready for any duty that It might be called on to perform. The men all understood whet was required of them, for we never deceived a recruit about what, he wns likely to encounter. There was sure to be trouble and mismanagement when Uncle Sam run barked on such n mission for the first time n so m imy rears, and we didn't want to hear any howls afterward. ' One of oar first experiences taught us the fiind of a game we were playing. We were luatled Into a transport as though everything depended on our getting aboard within a specified time, and then held there under a cheerful tropical aun for a week. During the first three dare after we landed In Cuba I lived on what hardtack and bacon some philan thropist In the ranks ohose to share with me In theory It Is pleasant to lie under a tropical aun and watch the Southern Cross, but when you are soaked to the skin and standing in mud over your ankles it Is astonishing how the gilt edge of romance Is taken off. It was on the second dar after we landed that wc got orders to march and join (inn. Young's brigade I don't think any of us will ever forget that niaruh. It waa a hard ex perience after being huddled upon the trans port for two weeks. But the men went ahead. They had been told one thing, and that was that if a man dropped out the rest were to go straight on as though nothing had happened. We had it thoroughly understood that if any man fell in action, from the Colonel down to a private, he was to be left where he fell end tho regiment goon. We started on that march at 0 o'clock, were soaked to the skin In a thunderstorm, but re warded at the end br word that we were to have a chance to tackle the Spanish rearguard While (leu. Young, with four troops of the First Cavalry and four troops of the Tenth Oavalrr. went up the valley road, we went over the trail through tho jungle. We struck the Spaniards at the same time that the regulars did. Ther were in a strong position, ami it was the first experience of tho American troops with an enemy having smokeless powder. When the firing wns heaviest there wasn't as much as a puff of smoke to show where tho enemy was. " Among the foremost of our men was a New York boy, roung Hamilton Fish, und in com mand of the advance guard was a man whom I regarded as nearer the ideal American officer than any man I had ever seen, gallant Capt. Oapron. Thev were in the heaviest fighting, and ware killed almost Immediately. They died not only heroes, but martyrs for the cause we were lighting for. That tnsip had its Cap tain killed and Its First Lieutenant shot, and the command fell on the Second Lieutenant, who, having seen his two superiors shot down, gathered his men together and finally drove the Spaniards out. Later, at San Juan, he, too, was shot down, and the command of that gal lant troop foil on the First Sergeant. "I waa on the right wing meantime, and it was Impossible for us to locate the enemy. W could hear the buUets singing over our heads, nud occasionally a man would crumple up. finally located tho Spaniards about 700 yards away and drove them out. Then we saw the regulars coming up. auditor fear they would mistake us for Spaniards the First Sergeant of Troop K climbed a tree and waved his guidon until tho signal was answered. " After that we moved up to Santiago, nnd camped on a hillside witha ridge In front of us. At dawn our artlllerr got on that ridge and opened fire. That was line music to us. but nrcttr soon the Spaniards began to reply, and Instead of dislodging our artlllerr they shot over It. and tho shrapnel came at us. Of eourau they didn't mean to hit us, because they couldn't see us, but that was like the Span iards. Well, whilo (lens. Lawton and Chaffee were pounding awar at El Caney we wore ordered to take the blockhouses on the hills. We went through the jungle in a hurry, forded the river and were then belted for an hour under heavy fire. I see by the pa pers that thore has been some talk as to whether we took San Juan hill ornot. I don t know whet her we did. We didn't stop to ask the name of the hill : we just took it. "The most trying part of It all was that waif, though, for the men were being shot down like sheep. I recollect giving an order to an orderly. He rose and saluted, then fell dead across mr knees. I saw Capt. Buck O'Neill walking up and down In front of his men. One of them said: 'Lie down. Captain: rou'll be hit. He lauahed and said: 'The Spanish bullet has not been made that can kill me.' The next moment lie fell dead, a bullet hole through his bead. H was a man of absolute courage, and one of the ilnest soldiers and men I have ever known. " W llnnilv got our orders to go ahead, and then began mv crowded hour of glorious life, an hour I wouldn't exchange for nil the rest of my life. It is pleasant to remember how the men behaved that day. I saw thirteen wounded men reiuee io fu 10 me r, ,uu x inmi. -V, Mexican cow punoher who was shot In the side and whom I ordered to the hospital myself. Twenty minutes later he was In the front rank lighting again. After the fight he went to the hospital and had his wound dressed, hllo lyihu on a cot he heard the surgeon soy that he was to be shipped home. That night he jumped out of the hospital window and came bock to camp. Ho fought with tho regiment from then on. . , ... "The temptation Is strong to go on with these tales of personal bravery. There were many others that I saw and a hundred for every one that came under mv observation. Well, we finally took that hill, which we always culled Kettle Hill. I don't know whether the Sjiaiilnrds called It San Juan Hill or not. "One word I want to say In closing, and that Is. that the regiment typified what we hold to be American. In It was the Protestant and tho Catholic, tho Jew and the Gentile, all alike and on the same footing. It was a Jew that I pro moted for gallantry on the field of bottle. The men rose on their merits as men, and br noth- Tho upplause lasted for nearly five minutes after Col Roosevelt sat down. Then Mr. Youngs, on behalf of the people of Oyster Bay, presented a fine new sword to Col. Roosevelt. " It Is not for your bravery In battle." he said, "that your fellow citizens give you this sword, but because they love rou as a man." . Col. Roosevelt said "Thanks." and then tho Rev. Charles 8.

Br the steamship Alameda from Australia comes the news that there mar be trouble between England and Oermanyover the oontrol In Samoa.

It is also reported that the (lormaus aro bringing back Mutanfa and are determined to eeat him on the Samoan throne, as ther can make him do as they please. The Oermans practicallr control the trade of the Islands, having driven out the English and American planters and traders. Good judges of the situation assert that there will be trouble should the Germans persist in a high-handed course The Ocrman. English and American Consuls, with the Chief Justice and President of the Municipal Council of Apia, have termed a Board of Control till tha election of a successor to Mallotoa. The most powerful candidate for the throne besides Matoafa Is Tamaansn, who lives near Apia. He has become the leader of all the dis affected natives, and he Is the kind of man to take to arms If he saw the chances of eloction going against him. The old King's death was due to typhoid fever. (Shortly before his death Malletoa was removed from Apia to tho residence of the late Robert Louis Stevenson, which Is at a considerable elevation. The change from the sea beach to a more salubrious locality was expeetcd to im prove the King's health, but ho gradually sank and died. He was burled near Stevenson's grave. Malletoa leaves a daughter, an attractive girl, named Fslmoa, who Is 17 years old, and who Is being educated at a London Missionaries' So ciety s school at Papauta, near Apia. (JEN. M'COOK DECLINES.

With just a slight mark on her starboard how as indication that she had been In collision two hours earlier the White Star liner Teu tonic came to her dock at i o'clock last night. The other party to the collision, which Is prob ably the lightest on record, waa the United States transport Berlin, bound for Porto Rivo. So light was the shock that most of those on board the big liner didn't know there had been any collision until they were so informed by stewards, who rather superfluously besought them to keep cool, as there was no danger. It is supposed that the transport sufforcd no harm, though no Infor mation could be eliolted by those on the liner. Capt. J. O. Cameron of the Teutonic aays thut his ship didn't hit the other hard enough to sorape the paint off. Thia 1b the account of the collision aa given by those on the liner, the Berlin's story being, of course, unattainable. At a few minutes be fore 7 o'clock lost evening the liner wns pass ing the entrance to the Swash Channel, having come through the main channel and passed the striped buoy, when the lights of a steam ship entering the Swash Channel wcresoen. Tho Teutonic turned out to port, whistling twice, but the other steamer made no reply to the signal. Then Capt. Cameron ordered theonglnes reversed. Tho bluff of the liner's bow struck the other ship In the wuist abaft the main rigging with so light a touch that those on deck folt nothing more than a slight jar. The Teutonic kept on backing and the Berlin also backed until the two vessels separated. Before the collision tho rog born signal wus given by the Teutonic for tho clos ing of the collision bulkheads and portholes, and this work was accomplished In about one minute. The following one-sided conversation then took place : The TeutonicWhat ship Is that? The Berlin No reply. The Teutonic Where are you bound? The Berlin No reply. The Teutonic Why didn't you answer our signal ? The Berlin No reply. The Teutonic Are you Injured? The Berlin No reply. " We've collidod with a floating lunatic asy lum manned by deaf mutes." was Copt. Cam eron's angry comment. "What's tha matter there ? Can't you speak ? " The Berlin No reply. Presently the Berlin could he seen lowering a man to examine her for injuries. After several minutes somebody on board piped out that the ship was tho Berlin, after which Bhe proceeded, still preserving her masterly silence. She passed out at the Hook at 8 o'clock, running at good speed, and Is undoubtedly uninjured. " The collision doesn't amount to anything." said Capt. Cameron after the ship reached dock. " We backed for about ten miles in all. The other ship wasn't hit hard enough to jar her. She didn't answer our signals and not a word was exchanged.

It looked at first as If sho meant to go astern of us, but she drew directly across our bows. Wo hit her on the starboard side at an ncute angle. Tho shock was perceptible and that is about all. I went below to tell I he women that there was no danger and found the stewards closing the portholes on the starl sjard side. It was very quickly and cleverly done. They were also reassuring the passengers. considerably to their surprise. ' The ltev. J. M. Gleeson of Waterville, N. Y.. was much interested in tho collision, us ha didn't know anything about it until a man came up to him and said: Keep cool. There's no cause for alarm." "I will." said the clergyman. " What is the cause of there being no cause for alarm ?" " We've collided with another boat, but we are not Injured." was tho reply. " It's a pretty poor sort of collision that one has to be told of before he knows it." said Mr. Gleeson in some little disgust, and he wont ou deck in time to hear Capt. Cameron hurling interrogative remarks Into thu unresponsive darkness. Many of the passengers didn't know of the collision until the ship docked. The Berlin Is the transpoit which arrived here from Mon tuuk Point on Tuesday with the First and Second Infantry aboard. They disembarked here, and the transport was loaded with medi cal, hospital and subsistence supplies, includ ing the equipment for a 500-bed hospital. She took on board six contract doctors, twenty male and twenty female nurses, a hospital corps anil a number of civilians and army officers, nnd sailed for Porto Rico from Pier 24, Brooklyn, at 5:30 In the afternoon. It was reported on the Teutonic that on Sun day night whilo she was off the banks of New foundland in an extremely thick fog a slight shook was felt, and it is thought that ahe may have collided witli a fishing smack. The most distinguished passenger on the liner was the Hon. John Hoy, who has mat re signed as Aral assador to England to become Secretary of State. I'pou landing he went di rect to the Holland House and wl.i Icavo for Washington to-day. He was accompanied br his wife and son and Spcucer Eddy, his private secretary. In response to questions ho said: " You must excuse me from talking on inter national subjects. Under tho circumstances I am not at lllierty to speak. I may say, how ever, that the warmth of feeling toward this country iu England such us that every American should feel gratified by it. The trip over hub not been a pleasant one, and 1 am glad to be on solid ground again." Another passenger on the Teutonic was Dr. James B Angell. the retiring United States Minister to Turkey, who returns to-day to his duties as President of tho University of Michi gan. Dr. Angell said: "This has been a very peaceful year with us. Nothing has occurred affecting American in-tere-ts in Turkey. The status of American missionaries In Turkey is much Improved, and I do not anticipate n repetition of the outbreaks of feeling ugaiust them. Turkey has been much interested in the Spanish-American war, and no Turk more so than the Sultan. He la intensely interested personally in all military and naval matters and makes a close study of them. Now lie wants some warships like ours and some of our gune that have worked such terrible de struction, and, I dare say, he would be glad to get some of the men behind the guns, too." "What Is your opinion of the disturbances in Crete?" Dr. Angell wus asked. "You know more of that subject over here than I do." was the reply. " 1 snail he inter ested in getting tho papers and seeing what has deve(oed slnco we left the other side." " Will Turkey acknowledge alaims for In demnity for American property destroyed In the anti-missionary riois r" " Turkey has repudiated all these claims. This Is notdlsorluilnation against this country, however, for she has donu it iu tho case of all countries." " Will force be necessarr to compel her to pay V" A display of foroe would probably be neces- " And how would that result?" "It might result in trouble," said Dr. Angell smiling. "The matter has passed beyond the jurisdiction of the I n I States Minister, however, and Mr. Straus, the new Minis ter, whom 1 met in Loudon, told me that he would not handle it at all." Dr. Angell said that the weather was unpleas ant coining over, but he is a good sailor and didn't mind It. He was accompanied by his wife, thoir son and daiightcr-iii-iuw.

JfBIBSDS OF KX-QUKB1T LIT, Native Rawallnns Ask for the Restoration of the Mouarrhy. Hoxoi.iM.f. Sept. 14. via San Francisco, Sept. 41. Tha native Hawaiians have greatly damaged their case with the Amorlcnn Com missioners by presenting petitions asking for the restoration of the monarchy. This action has so thoroughly oonvlnced the Commis sioners of the complete lack of political sense and sagacity of the native Hawaiians that it Is believed they will make no recom mendation to give the natives the right of sut fruge. On the night of Sept. 12. 300 natives hold a meeting in the Palace Square, at which speeches were made declaring that the Ameri can flag would soon oome down and the islands again be Independent. Resolutions were adopted to present to the Commissioners a petition cnlling for the restoration of tho monarchy. The preamble of these resolutions re hearsed the old story that Llliuokalanl yielded the throne to the force of the United States In order to avoid bloodshed, and that the an nexation resolution hud never been ratified by the Hawaiian Legislature. To-day a petition wus placed before the Commissioners, signed br 300 natives of the islund of Hawaii, asking for the restoration of the ex-Queen, or. if this be impossible, then the monarchy be restored with Kululoul as Queen. Nutlves who recognize that annexation has come to stay have presented a petition for suf-'rage. PALACE FOB -A BABBACKS. Cnl. Kimball ItcuiuuienC lie Jltin Ji .d Central Building, Deputy Quartermaster-General Kimball re ceived an offor yesterday from the owners of the Grand Central Palace to rent the building to the Government as a barracks for the volun teers. The rental asked wag $0,000 a month. The offer was put in writing and Col. Kimball forwarded It to Washington last night with the recommendation that it bo accepted. Tho building is seven stories high, with a frontage on Lexington avenue. Forty-third and Forty-fourth streets. The Government re quires that each man in barracks shsll have 400 cubic feet of air space. Col. Kimball sent an officer to Inspect the building, and found that, allowing 400 cubio feet of air space to each man. the building could accommodate 4.200 men. As it Is better ventilated than any army burracks, Col. Kimball concluded that the whole fi.lHKJ volunteers whom the War Depart ment proposes to put In burracks In New York or vicinity could be taken care of in the building. The pulsce is heated hy steam, lighted by electricity, and has three largo elevators.

Man Who Hud Kicked Dog Followed nnd Struck with an Iron Bar, Matthew Sullivan and his brother Michael, who work in an Iron foundrr in East Twenty third street, jostled against a man with a bull dog on their way home, last night, with results that may prove fatal to Matthew. The man with the bulldog was standing at Twenty-third street and Second avenue and the two brothers brushed against him. The dog snapped at them and one of them kicked him. Both boarded an electric car before the owner of the dog realized that his pet had been kicked. As soon as he did he pickod up a short iron bur used in throwing the car switch und ran after the car. He climbed up behind the rear dashboard, reached over and struck Matthew Sullivan over the head, then dropped to the street and disappeared. Michael Sullivan helped his brother off the car at the uextcorner and led him to Bcllevue Hospital. He was bleeding at the nose and Dr. Ralls, after a short examination, decided that there was a com pound fracture of the skull. The police were notified and a general alarm was sent out for the man with the dog. William Sliber. a vaudeville comedian, of 315 East Twenty-third street, was arrested later as the man with the dog. The dog. Silber says, is not a bulldog, but a Yucatan dog. and tho prisoner also Insists that he struck Sullivan with a beer pitcher, not with an Iron bar. Sit: AM SHI l' BIBEBNIA AS HOICK.

A despatch to the Daily Mail from Lisbon says that elaborate measures have been token to proteet the royal residences at Cintra and Csscees. It seems that the au thorities have been warned of an Anarchist plot to assassinate King Carlos. The Vienna correspondent of the Vaitv Afdfl says that all the powers. Including Oreat Brit ain, have assented to Italr's proposals looking to common action against Anarchists. It is understood that the measure to be adopted will be extremelr severe. A mere avowal of anarohlstte views will constitute a criminal offence. It Is expected that Great Britain will prohibit the immigration of refu gee Anarchists. The foregoing despatch Is not confirmed, and the statements therein are considered Im probable.

Bis Secret Instructions to the Commission ers in Bavnna. Havaxa, Sept. 21, via Key West. Th Sun correspondent has read the private Instruc tions from Madrid to the Spanish Commission ers here. They are signed by Sagaata himself and addressed to the Marquis of Montoro. They are short and written on a shno) of common letter writing paper. The instruc tions were sent confidentially by the Marquis to an uncompromising Spanish friend in Ha vana, who immediately showed them to the correspondent of The Sun. The most uncompromising Spaniards before the protocol was signed are now the most eager to see the Spanish army Bailing for Spain. Whon the war was over they only looked for the salvation of their interests In the island. The quicker the United States takes hold of Cuba the better they will like it. Sagasta's instructions are fur delay. Hagastu merely says to the Spanish Commissioners to win as much as they can. If the evacuation by the Spanish troops can't be delayed for soma months, then the Commissioners must try to see that the present Spanish Autonomist Cabi net remains in office until the treaty of Paris Tlio few persons hers that know those are the instructions believe that Sagasta la still hopeful of European Intervention In behalf of Spain In' the very last moment. Grounds for this belief are Sagasta's constant dec larations that this only a suspension of hostilities that may still be broken. But that explanation is not in all probabil ity the true one. It is moro likely a desire to satisfy the demands of Spaniards in office here and a large number of Spanish offi cers who are not willing to return to Spain now and who can make trouble at home to tho Gov ernment of her Majesty. The corruption of the autonomist Govern ment in the last days of Spain in Cuba is beyond description. Two men can be picked out as honorable exceptions. One Is Gon. Blan co, whose honesty and gentlemanly feelings cannot be doubted. The other is Rafael Fernandez deCastro, Civil Governor of Havana. Castro Is hated by one part of the Cuban revo lutionists, on account of his pro-Spanish atti tude in Weyler's time. Yet that hatred Is merely political. Castro has done good to the Cuban population, especlallr to the poor. Blanco is also the guarantee here for public order and peace. He cannot prevent the steal ing that prevails In all departments, but he will himself return to Spain deserving the respect of all. It Is an open secret that be is disgusted with what happens around him. Besides, us a military man of a brilliant record, he does not conceal his disapproval of peace without letting him have a chance to fight In Havana. He will not, so he says, surrender the island to the United States. He will leave that task to the second In command, Ooncalez Parrado. and he will sail for Spain moat nrobablyon Oct. 10 on board the Reiua Marin Christiana. The Spanish residents consider it dangerous for their interests for the Spanish arinr to re main because It mar break the peace. Oeu. Rolas. who has assumed an uncom promising anti- Amnricuu attitude, ha ordered the offi cers to wear their side arms. DELAY IX CUB AX OCCUPATION. Tho President Unwilling to Send Troops Thera Until Fever Danger Is Past. WAbuiNUTON, Sept. 21. The President has given an intimation that he has decided to postpone the occupation of Cuba until cooler weather sets In and all danger of rellow fever at Havana is past This Is the view of Gen. Miles, but he has been opposed br thu War De partment, which wishes the soldiers sent to Cuba at once. The President, however, Is extremelr anxious to protect the welfare and health of "our boys," aa he called them, and has determined that they shall not he exposed to the dread disease. For this reason he will not hurry the work of the Cuban Commission and really hopes that its labors will be so frolonged as to carrr the time of occupation of lavaua well Into the cold season. He wishes. however, to urrungu some plans by which the Spanish officers tn charge of the customs can be relieved and trade relations with Cuba be resumed. At present those officials are taking everything In sight, as ther know they will not have to account for the duties, and ther ore lining thoir pockets aa best ther can. ABBIPAL Or TBB QUEEN.

At the time LI Hung Chang was in triguing with Russia over the letter's Interven tion against Japan with regard to the Llao Tung jienlnsula. one of the most embarrassing questions rslsed was that relating to his Im perial Majesty's oustoras, which the Russians were most anxious should pass into their control. "An understanding was arrived at. but it was agreed to let the matter stand In abeyance until the British head of the Chinese customs. Sir Robert Hart, had been retired. " When China recently gave her promise to Great Britain that she should always be repre sented In the management of the Chinese cus toms by a British subject, the Russian Depart ment for Asia at St. Petersburg, thinking things were going too far, unearthed the prom ise made br Li Hung Chang when he had ex traordinary powers vested In him to the effect that Sir Robert Hart should be replaced br a Russian at the head of the Chinese customs. The promise, moreover, was tn documentary form, and its existence has been forcibly brought to the notice of the Chinese Govern ment br the Itussiaus in answer to the promise made br China to Great Britain." The Uawtit intimates that Russia will compel China to carry out LI Hung Chang's promise. BUSSIANS ACCUSED OP CBUELTT. Maudlin bun Preparing to Beslst Russia's Advance Into Their Territory. Vascouveb.

The Daily Ames prints aa Interview had with Major Eeterhasy at Charing Cross station yesterday as ha was about start ing to return to Paris. Katerhaxr said: "Oen. Pellleux ought to have known that Lieut.-Col. Henry's document was a forgery I told him In the Assise Court that nothing conld ba built on such a foundation, but he would not listen to me. He contented himself with the simi larity of the texture of the paper, whloh was only apparent after Henry'a suicide. " I told Oen.

He refused to re ceive me. I wrote again, offering to prove my statements, but he again refused to see me. Only three persons knew the whole truth Bandherr. Henry and myself. They are dead, and I alone bold tha secret. I Intend to publish a book which will throw light on all this un happy story. I do not know whether I will uss the documents in my possession. It will de pend on events." Th Daily Aui records rumors, apart from Col. Plcquart's htnt In court, that Col. Henry was assassinated. Tha trial at Lieut-Col. Ploquart was called In tha Eighth Correctional Tribunal to-day. Almost immediately after tha cuss was called the Deputy Publto Prosecutor, representing the Uoverument, asked for an adjournment of tha cos upon the ground that Oen. Zurlinden, late Minister of War, had ordered the institu tion of fresh proceedings against Ploquart by the military authorities in connection with the documents known as fjthe petit bleu. Thsaa charges, be said, were of forgery and of making xee of forged documents. It wss necessary, he declared, to know the author of the forgeries, and inquiry into the present charge must be postpoued until that matter was settled. M. Laborl. counsel for Ploquart, strenuously opposed an adjournment. He expressed his indignation at the suggestion of an adjourn ment, und declared thut he would not con sent to having his client deprived of civil justice in order that he might be handed over to the grasp of military justice. Regarding the documents in the petit bleu, whloh were alleged to have been forged, M. Laborl declared that they were entirely authentic. Lieut.-Col. Plcquart then addressed the court In opposition to adjournment, und said in con clusion : "Perhaps this may be tho lust time I shall speak in public. I shall, perhaps, sleep to night in the military prison of Chercbe Midi. I wish therefore to declare that if I find there the strangling rope of Lemerclcr Plcard or the razor of Lieut.-Col. Henry It will be a case of assassination, for I have not the least idea of com mittlng suicide" This utterance evoked cries of "Vive Pie quart." The court then adjourned the trial in definitely. Col. Plcquart declined to ask for boil, and was taken baok to prison by detect Ives, receiving an ovation from the crowd as he wss led away. It is asserted that a dispute has arisen be tween the civil and military authorities as tn which shall have the custody of Lieut. -Col. Plcquart. Oen. Chanclne.

President Fsure will return to Paris to pro side at the Cabinet council on Monday, when the decision of the revision commission in the Dreyfus case Is expected. The papers favoring revision of the Dreyfus case call Col. Bertln to account for his part in the Dreyfus prosecution, and accuse him of be ing one of the most Impassioned promoters of the accusations against Dreyfus and one of tha most persistent opponents of revision. The Lipeclie Colonials says it Is authorized to contradict the report of the early removal of Dreyfus from Devil's Island to Franco. The Ministers, the paper says, have not considered the question, and will await the decision of the Court of Cassation, to whloh the question of re vision must go for final decision, in the event of the Revision Commission deciding to reopen tho cose.
