WaMU.noto.v, Oct. IS. The first step In the efforts of the special American oommiiioners to Santo Domingo to liririR about nn amelioration of tho menac ing situation in that republic was an-tiounc-'ti to-day in despatches received at the .State. Department. The features of tho plan agreed upon thus fHrnre: I he declaration of I'reMdent Victoria, promulgated on October 21, that he will retire on July 1. llH. the date when tho txrrn of office of the late I'resldtnt Caceres would hate expired, By Dominican law In CAe of the death of a President In office hi successor serves not the unexpired portion of his predecessor's term but be gins a new term of six year. Elections for Victoria' successor will be held In May, ISM. Alfredo Victoria, nephew of the, Presi dent, hi Minister of War and grncrally regsrrled ns the "rnim belli" In the Domini can reiiiitilli' because of the use he hn made of hi eitriiorillniiry Influence with hi uncle, the rrrtilcnt, I to retire from the Cabinet t once. Minister of I'lnnnce I'ordora will also withdraw In the near luture. Amnesty I offered all rebels, political prisoners are tn he rrlcnsed at once nnd all political eillr are to be permitted tn return to tho Dominican republic as Mon ns they please. It is understood all of tho changes were broURht nbottt through tho negotiations of W. T. S. Doyle of tho Department of State and Brig.-Gen. Francis Mclntyre of the bureau of insulnr affnlm, who are special commissioners Instructed by the United States to do what they can to remedy conditions in tho Dominican iepublio. The purpose is to allay if popslhle the rebellion now in progress against the Dominican Government by "u policy of conciliation and especially by assurances that the time will not bo long liefore all opponents of tho present ad ministration will have opportunity to make themselves felt In the forthcoming elec tions. Ordinarily, this election would not come until 1019, as Victoria did not take office until February. '012, follow ing the assassination of President Cuceres Ix weeks beforo. The withdrawal of Gen. Victoria from I lie situation was arranged as a guarantee tn the Dominican people that henceforth thev may cxect no more of tho harsh and exasperating measures for which the Minister of War was held responsible. ictnria is to be succeeded in the Cabinet by Kllas Urat'hc, a young lawyer said to liiivn mo support oi an laciions. Tli retirement of the Minister of Fi name is said to Iw desirable in ordr that a new ordor of things may 1 instituted in the financial affairs of the republic. There have been serious charges of tho diversion or uovernment funds from their proper purposes, assumption of unwarranted financial obligations, the nonpayment of debts and downrielit emit and dishonesty. A Uimigti in this ileurtinent , it la hoped, will effect beneficial chance. The other measures are for the purpose of conciliating tho rebels and giving nssuranon that all parties and individuals will nave a ralr cnanco to participate in the affairs of tho republic Whether the rebels now operating in the north will be contented with this programme and givo up their struggle against the Govern ment is not known here. There is much hope that tho programme announced to-day will have the desired effect. It is believed that even if the leaders do not accept the programme tho people will and thus withhold from the revolution thei r further support.

"The owners of sixty billions of stocks and bonds take each year, through the cost of the people's living, 3,000 millions. "Now keep your finger on this: "The problem of high-cost living centers in this sixty billion dollars of capital stocks and bonds. "If the sixty billions is real capital, the people should pay ( to its owners the 3,000 millions each year, for that is what the use of sixty billions of real capital is worth in the world's markets. "But if any part of it is counterfeit capital, the people are being robbed of all they pay for the use of the counterfeit part. "Keep your fmger on this, too: "Over forty billions of the sixty billions of stocks and bonds , capital is counterfeit. It represented, when issued, no ac- , cumulated labor.
