The casino In Sulznr's Harlem River Park
held a denta throng of people when Col, Itoosj
volt reached there at 10 o'clock, last evening,
nd they gavo him an uproarious welcomo.
They had been waiting for him all the evonlng,
and tholr enthusiasm omod to have grown
while thoy waited. Thoy stood up as soon as
ho' entered the door ut the rear of tho hall and
cheered Until ho apponred on the stage. Thon
thoy added rolls to the cheering and waved
American flags Joyously while thoy cheorejl
some more. They kept this up for several
minutes, until Col. Roosevolt began to talk to
thorn, after bowing to tho Chairman, without
waiting to br formally presented. During one
of the lulls In tho cheering after Ool. Roosevelt
emerged upon the stage LleuL-Oov. Wood
rulT. who had been or the Colonel's party,
stepped out from bohlnd the scenes and re
ceived his share of the greetings, which he
acknowledged with a bow.
However many thousands Bulror's Casino
holds, that number of people were In It latt
night, and It seemed as It there woro loine
more. Thov were literally packed In In places.
Hundreds had no ahanco whatever of hearing
Col. Roosevelt's voice, and know that they
had none, but they stayed there to see
him and boiler for him, and and this
seemed to bo no small part of their Intent
In coming to tho meeting to hiss tho name of
Illuhard Croker as If It were an Incantation to
tho archllond. It is safe to say that never has
tuat narao bcon bo generously, enthusiastically
nnd vohomontly execrated in that abode of
Hnrlom's joys und wous and Tammany ratifica
tions iik it was lustevenlng. l'urt.cularly when
thu Tammany lender's nnme was mentioned in
cuii nee t Ion with the judiciary this storm of
ugly hlsies broke witu especial vehemence,
but without exception the storm cam every
llmo tils namo was spoken, und tt.uoti people
showed their deteBtittton of tho boss who
wou.d degradn the courts. . ...
Uefore Col. Roosevelt csmo Judge Collins of
Nebraska addressed the meeting. Aftorprals
Ing Roosevelt amid repeated clieerx. tho Judge
happened to mention Crokor. nnd the acclama
tions changed to fearful hissos,
" He's a norso thief 1" cried a man In a box.
Another shouted: "Bond him u hoarse."
A maloquurtet pleased thocrowd immensely,
singing of the time when Croker would go
wnfi Ing. sailing to England after thu returns
cutue In. Then thoy sang:
To Vn Wye and Croker we'll aiy rsreweU,
U tby don't tulet lu pmdl, Ibey will la .
The audience finished the sentence and tho
auurtot tickled It uaain by singing of Roose

Col. Roosovelt said:
"I want, to tell you how much I appreciate
your coming out to meet mo. lam glad to
meet you face to face and to discuss with foil
allot the Issues or this campaign. I don't ask
you for hall a ballot. I di.u't ask you to re
member that you are New Yorkers and forget
th it you are Americans.-"
A Voice "(live It to 'em, Teddy I".
Col. Roosevelt continued: "The greatest
Ptnto Isiue Involved, or which can be lavolv. d.
Isan honest tddlclnry. In 1770 our forefathers
armfgned King Ueorge because ho had made
JudiceB dependent on his royal decree. Now
tho uncrowned king of Tummnny ILill Msnes
has undertaken to say thnt n Judge's tenura of
ofllcu shall be dependent upon his services to
lammnny Hall. When I Bpenk of Tammany
Hall I never know whether to suy he or It."
Voices-" Ho I He I" .
' Upon a Judge more than upon any one pub

the jsocurlty of your life and your property.

n Jddge thinks of,augljtln his judicial con

The only name of n candldato I ehull

of a Democrat, Judge Daly, whom I am glad
our party has uomliiutod. a man who for
twenty-eight years has performed nlsdutyto

h is cal.ed up the shndo of Mr. Tweed, who. ho

I nh'nuld be sorry Ifhe hadn't,
"Mr. Croker llilsnos and his organization

tame way every inihllo-ofllrorwho refuses to
do their bidding If they can."
"There's lots of 'om with you." cried a man.
Interrupting Col. Roosovelt at another point of
his speech.
"I think BO.tno."repllod the Colonel, candidly,
"fnrthcneoplowoul I rather go with nn honest

was to raise my hand and the Issuo would not

"Good government depends fundamentally
upon three things-corn '"on seni common
honesty, nnd courage. What would you think
ofn man who promised to be honest In selling

Paris, Oct. 31. Tho 8panlsh-Amorlcan Peace
Commission snt for an hour to-day. The
American Commlsoloners submitted tholr pro
posals In regard to tho Philippines. These
com prlaod a demand for the cession of tho en
tire archipelago. The correspondent of Tru
Hun Is unnblo to name the conditions accom
panying the demand, because, as his Informant
oxplatned. tho Spanish Commissioners had not
yet had an opportunity to examine carefully
the American statement and claim, which wore
submitted In English.
Your corrcsiiondcnt Is authorized to say,
however, that Spain will undoubtedly reject
the American proposals. This decision was
not made known to the American Corneals
i loners by the Spaniards.
In reply to my Inquirywhy. If the rejection
was Irrevocable, It was not announced atohce.
my Informant said:
"It would be undiplomatic and unwise to
take a stop Involving such grave consequences
until the American proposals were formally
consldored and tho Madrid Government had an
opportunity to approve their rejection. There
Is no question, however, that only one answer
Is possible for Spain."
Another Spaniard possessing full knowledge
or the situation said to-night: "We fully ex
pect that the conference will end In a rupture."
The commissions adjourned until Friday at
the requestor tho Spaniards. There Is reason
to bollove that some of the Spanish mombers
are sorry to-night that they asked lor such
a long adjournment. Inquiries that are
being made suggest that they are consid
ering the possibility of turning tho pend
ing Amorlcan political campaign to Span
ish account It seems to have occurred
to them thnt If an Immediate rupture Is threat
ened the McKlnley Administration will make
extraordinary concessions rather than permit
tho announcement on the eve ot tho elections
ot a renewal or war against a helpless roe.
Their Idea seems to bo that the chivalrous
Americans will not support a party which
would permit such a situation to arise.
As a matter otract, thero Is nothing In the
Spanish policy which appeals to chivalry.
Spain's whole aim and purpose In these nego
tiations Is money. If. for Instance, the
United States relinquished all claims to
tho Philippines and attempted to mako
peace on the basis of Its present de
mnnds concerning Cuba and Porto Rico, the
Spanish dilemma would be hopeless, not to
say ludicrous. The Spanish Commissioners
would resent tho suggestion, but it is no doubt
true that they would prefer to surrender nil
their colonial possessions for a sum large
enough to relieve their country's financial dis
tress rather than to keep them all. except Cuba.
It was well understood, of course, that tho
United States In to-day's proposals mado a
financial offor in connection with the cession
of tho Philippines.
The explanation of the Spanish attitude
above descrlbodjs simply th'ttt'the" toxma
named are so much below Spain's expectations
that she believes an agreement Impossible,
and that olio has less to lose and possibly more
to gain by tho desperate policy of breaking off
the negotiations.
Tub Sun correspondent has roceivod the fol
lowing statement from a Spanish source pos
sessing the fullest knowledge of the situation:
"The American proposals seem to mean that
the United States will assumo the debtor tho
Philippines to tho extent of the amount actually
spent for the benefit of the nrclilpolago,and will
pay Spain a sum which will tall considerably be
low $40,000.00 ). Thee tonus 8poln will reject
absolutely. The Spanish Commissioners will
submit counter-proposals on Friday. The
Spanish terms will bo so widely different that
unless the Amorlcan offer Is Intended nn
merely tentative nn agreement will bo Impos
sible and a rupture of the negotiations will
speedily follow."
It Is natural to suspect that such a declara
tion as thu foregoing Is a msnuiuvre to put
pressure on the Amorlcan representatives, but
there Is good reason to believe that It is a gen
uine statement ot the Spanish position and
intentions. It should be added that It
Is not voluntarily put forward by Spain's
representatives, but Is tho resnlt or a long dis
cission or tho situation with a gentleman
whoso advice varr es weight with the Spanish
Government
EAM.IEB VIEW OV IT.
Madiiid. Oct 31, via Biarritz. 8enorMonte.ro
Rlos. President ol the Spanish Peace Commis
sion, has telegraphed to the Government that
the Amorlcan Commissioners now display a
more fnvorablo disposition.
They now consider the cession of Porto Rico
a sufficient war indemnity and compensation
for tho claims ot American citizens In recent
years. Thoy are willing to discuss tho Cuban
problem attentively. Primo Minister Sagosta
is hopeful of success in tho negotiations.
Tho Heraldo, commenting on the reports of
the withdrawal of the Spanish Commissioners,
says that tholr retirement from the negot.a
tlons without anything being signed would bo
a most porilous leap In the dark. It would
only entail tresh humiliation In tho near fu
ture. Tho paper adds:
"The slmplo truth Is we are vanquished
The errors of many years and thellncupaolty of
many publlo mon have led us to an impulse,
whence there Is no escape."
The Liberal and National publish artloles In
a similar strain.

Tbe broad discretion conferred on the Com.
mlfislouera does not extend, however, to au

This Government has decided thai the coo

The Amerlcun demand for tho cession of tho

when yellow fever developed on board she was
withdrawn to Tompklnsvlllo. She was suc
ceeded bv the auxiliary gunboat Scorpion,
which will leave when the Topoka gets to
Havana.
It was snld nt tho Navy Department thnt the
orders to the Topekn had nn greater signifi

was time for tho Scorpion to comn nway.
The Topekn Is a regular worship. She was

Since William J. La Roche, thn Democratic
candldato for Senator in tho Sixth district
Brooklyn, was ordered by tho party bosson to
koep his mouth shut during tho rest of tho
campaign he has retired to the seclusion of his
hardware store on Vesey street. Manhattan,
where ho awaits tho result of tho election. His
campaign managers. It Is said, were afraid that
his oratory would arouse his constituents to
such a pitch of enthusiasm that thoy might tor
get to vote for him.
It was Candidate La Rccho's last speech
which brought nbout this decision, no wan
slated as tho orator of the night at tho Fort
Greene Democratic Club rally nt Fulton street,
near Hudson avenue, on Saturday night He
had been heralded by Mr. M. L. Towns, one or
his political discoverers. as "a man with an
cpen countenance, a cheery tone and a heart
as big as an ox." Mr. La Roc ho entered the
ball by a side door nnd snt dowti behind a palm
tree, where ho modestly munched chestnuts
wh lo the band played " Hull to the Chief,"
A bubbling young orator who wus telling the
sudlenco about "lmperl.il Rome and her
Ca'sars" subsided to give l.n Roche a chance.
Mr, La Roche sioke as follows:
"You huve heard all the momentous quos
tlo s discussed. I'm not an orator. I've nevor
paid much attention to politic. The gentle
men ltttcharge or my campaign have advised
pie not to discuss the great issues, but jn-t to
jolly the lioys along. Well. 1 don't think I'm a
good jolllorat that I could tell some mighty
good stories, but I see some ladles here."
A Voles Go on and toll them; don't be
bashful,
"My rival. Mr. Zlegler."the candidate con

he'd see that Brooklyn tins better water. Well.
I don't see anything the mutter with the water.
The great trouble, fellow citizens, is that Mr,
Zlegerdoon't know how to mix It (Cheers.)

Washington, Oct, 31. Tho deaths of Col.
Waring and othor officers representing tho
United States Government In Havana, ot yel
low fever, showing the provulonco of tho plague
In places In Cuba most favorably sttuatod from
a sanitary standpoint havo caused a chango
In tho plans ot tho War Department tor the
occupation ot tho Island, While no postpone
ment ot tho tlmo at which the occupation will
begin has bcon definitely determined, and will
not bo until Col. Lee nnd Col. Heekcr ot tho
(Juartermastor's Department return to Wash
ington from Havana, It Is regarded as unwise
by the President and b'ocretary Alger to send ;
any large body ot men to Havana or else
where In tho Island until utter the yellow fever
.season has passed. Cul. Leo and Col. Hcckcr,
whe have boon In Cuba oxamlnlng camp sites
end wlmrf facilities, sailed from Havana tor
Nojrr York to-day on the steamer Sonocn, ac
companied by other members of the board. of
which they were the senior membors. In the
despatch to the War Department announcing
tholr doparturo Col. Hcokor said that all tho
party woro well.
It was supposed 'by tho War Department offi
cials that tho yellow fover season in Cuba
would bo over by Out 15. and oertalnly br
Nov. 1, and It wsb Intended to send troops to
tho vicinity of Havana during tho month of
November. Now. however, no laigo body of
soldiers will leave tho Unltod 8tatos tor Cuba
until tho lattor part of next mouth. A emull
b"dy of troops will go very soon to construct
tho camps for tho army vt occupation,' and
every precaution will bo taken to prevent
these from becoming Infected with the dread
die ease.
Ono of tho highest officials of tho Govern
ment told a 8u. reporter to-day that while the
Administration had beou anxious to get all the
SpunlBh troopdOUtof Cuba In the shortest tlmo
posKlble. It would be, satisfied now to let tho
forces In Havana delay tholr embarkation un
til nbout tho llrst of December, when the yel
low fever season will undoubtedly have passed.
Ho said that the Government had not been
obliged to postpone occupation owing to lack ot
transports, and that there was no truth in a re
tort that transports would be furnished by the
United Stutes fur carrying tho Spanish soldiers
back to Spain In order to expedite their evao
uatton. Thero has been no chnnge In the decision of
the Administration to assume formal control
over the entire Is'and of Cuba on or nbout
Dec. 1. Although the Spanish forces have been
given until Jan. 1 to evacuate and will probably
not be out of the Island br that time, the Gov
ernment has determined to take possession ot
the U-Jiitom Houses and proceed to ndmluistor
the affairs of Cuba on some date about a month
from now. It is likely that Deo. 1 will be tlxed
as the date of the Innuguiatlon ot the Ameri
can administration. Despite tho fact that there
will be a large number of Spanish troops In
and about Havana when the Stars and Htrli es
are to be ralBCd, the President and his advisors
nre opposed to waiting longor. They do not
Biitlcipato uny trouble from the Spaniards,
who will probably bo oomoelled to movo out of
the capital and other large towns lo places
where thev will await tho arrival of the vessels
that will carry them to bpuin. The, plan lias
not been perfected yet. A great deal depends
on the vlows of Col. Leo and Col. Ueoker.

London. Oct 31. The Government hitherto
has not admitted that any special warlike prep

tho newspapers are publishing loo many do

Col, Stopford. chief of tho mobilization
branch of the Intelligence Department. In an

nous harm to the country by Printing valuable
military Information which It Is against our
Interests to communlcato to France."
This obvious confirmation of the reports of
warlike preparations and open designation of
tho possible onoray will Inevitably attract lively
attention herennd In Franco. It need not how
ever, be construed ts meaning that anything
