Evtft those who were formerly the closest friends of the ex-president are now bitterly denouncing him. and the prophecy Is made on all sides thut he will find it advisable to leave the country. l.a J^ucha (liberal) says the Palma administration secretly planned to sell the country for a mess of pottage. It emulated Judas Iscariot and Benedict Arnold, yet In a manner that would have brought a blush of shame to the cheeks of those historic traitors. t By their own acts they have become outra?lo In thuir nun intr\r ?i r\ /1 ? pulsed as political lepers. The paper declares that had the correspondence been known at the time no Intervention would have been quick enough to Rive them. They would have been eradicated not only from Cuban politics, but also from the face of the earth.

Thev fOUnd 3,000 rebels h?re and at Cruces and Rados, which was about half the number the rebels claimed were, at these point*. Speeches on peace and the ceremonies of disarmament had a good effect. The rebel leaders promised that the men would return at once to their homes. Seven hundred marines are ashore in this district under command of Capt. Barnet.

The commissioners made an extensive round today by special train, beginning at Cruces and going to Santisslma, Trinidad, Santo Domingo and Huotney. At Jicoteo Gen.

Fresh denial of the most authoritative nature Is given to stories that the President is likely to take -an active part In the New York campaign by making speeches or wrting letters in behalf of Hughes, the republican nominee. The President is known to have tUfe strongest sart of desire for the success oif* the republican nominees^and to regard the! election of Hearst as a danger to be greatly feared. Personally he was in favor of the i nomination of Hughes long before the rei publican convention met. He feels that no I abler or stronger man could have been se Icctcd. He is willing. to give any assistance | he possibly can in a dignified way. but he wll not depart from the traditions of the Presidency as to campaign speeches or party activity of that sort. Strong effort* have been made to have the President break all precedents und jump right into the New York fight, his friends declaring that if he would do so his influence would be so great as to insure the election of Hughes. There is no question that the advice of the President as to* the conduct of the campaign will be freely given and eagerly accepted. He is generally recognised by the reform, independent element .of the New York, republic ins as the natural leader In New York affairs, and little Is done orithnnt fircf r>nnonl f inir V??y? SECOND-CLASS MAIL PROBE. Commission Adjourned Inquiry to This. City for November '26. NEW YORK, October 6.?The congressional commission which has been investigating the - carrying of second-class ma'l matter by the Post Office Department decided today to adjourn the hearing to Washington, where representatives of the Periodical Publishers' Association will be heard on November 2ij. After the adjournment E. C. Madden, third assistant postmaster general, said: "I think that beyond question the Post Office Department has established its case-namely, that the present laws regulating second-class mail matter are out of date and practically nullified by present practices beyond the control of the department as now equipped, and that a real an;I. effective enforcement would he injurious to the publishing interests. There are many fm.KI i/in ?r.T.T AnlAvInn i V. a .. ?' ]/uuiii.aiJuuo uwvv ruju^ lug i.ic juniiL-^c ui the second-class rate, in violation of the intent and purposes of statutes, to the detriment of the postal revenues amounting to millions annually. From the hearings the correctness of this is practically conceded by the publishers themselves. They seem to be substantially agreed that a reformation of the laws is Imperative. Just what view the committee will take or what action it will propose. If any, no one at this time can forecast." STRIKE US RESTRAINED. Injunction the Most Sweeping Ever Granted in Toledo. TOL.KDO, Ohio, October Judge Tayler, In the United States court today, granted an injunction restraining the striking workmen at the Pope Motor Car works from picketing the plant or in any way interfering with the non-union men at work. The injunction involves between 250 and 300 striking machinests, and is one of tbe most sweeping ever granted by a court In Toledo.

They had been captwed In Birmingham, and the news of tne sheriff'* departure with the prisoners was wired ahead. On* of the prisoners was the cause ot th? attack which was made on the county jaQ here a few days ago. In this attack a special officer was killed while defending the "* jail and a number of men In the mob were wounded. While the attack was in progress the negro was placed on board a train and taken to Birmingham.

Meantime the prisoner*, who susp -cted the purpose of the mob, were cowering in fear on hands and knees. 9:ierirf Power# drew ft revolver, but the weapon was promptly knocked from hig hand and he was held in his seat while the prisoner* were dragged into the aisle. As the prisoners were led away from the train the nasseneers iolned the mob and took part In the lynching. "Burn them at t.ie stake," cried several men. The prisoners, one of whom was a boy seventoen years old, fell on their knee* and begged for mercy. Nooses were placed around their necks without further delay, and the ropes were thrown over the branch of a tree.
