Anniversary of the Beginning of Ten Years' War. REBEL LEADERS TO MEET They Assemble to Discuss Some Existing Conditions. PLANS FOR CONTINUED PEACE American Commissioners Trying to Arrange an Enduring Plan That W ill Continue After They Leave. TIAVAKA Opfnhpr 10.?This beinsr the thirty-eighth anniversary of tlie beginning of the ten year yar for independence, the day was observed as a national holiday. The public offices, with the exception of the palace, were c'osed, as were many stores. The public and other buildings were decorated with Cuban flags. The usual parade of troops was dispensed with. The celebration was not marked by any great enthusiasm. Several leaders of the revolution arrived here today from various parts of the Island for the purpose, it is said, of attending a meeting tonight at the home of Gen. Del Castello. They would not discuss the object of the gathering, but it Is said that the rebel generals Intend to make urgent requests to Secretary Taft for official positions under the provisional government. They feel, it is asserted, that their hopes are vain, unless they voice their ambitions before the departure of Mr. Tuft. It is stated that each of the generals has selected the position which he desires and will make a demand for it on tli? BrnniiH that \1r Tuft is nhli gallons to them for their assistance in disarming the rebels. Among the generals known to have been requested by telegraph to ccme here are Guzman, Ferrara, Is'uchado and Guerra. and ft Is believed that others are coming. Some Hard Feeling. Special Cableip-am to llie Star. HAVANA, October 10.?In spite of hard feeling over the La Suiza afTair at Clenft legos. Gov. Taft's amnesty proclamation is well received, the liberals admitting the necessity of forgiving old scores for the reestablishment of peace. Chichi Ferrandes, the liberal who was wounded at La Suiza while defending Vllluendas, and who is still in prison, unjustly aceused of murdering Chief of rolice IIllance of Cienfuegos, wrote to Gov. Taft yesterday that he would prefer a fair trial to amnesty, for 'ie would like to prove who killed his friend Viliuendas. This letter was delivered by Viliuendas' brother. But Gov. Taft had a long conver- i sation with the latter, in the course of which he appealed to Viliuendas' patriotIsm, and finally he issued his amnesty decree. comprising In the amnesty the particl pants In the I^a Sutza affair. Had not this measure been taken many prominent members of the moderate party, and most likely Palma himself, as a witness, would have had to go to court, thus stirring up all the hatreds and passions of 1905. Attitude of Liberals. On leaving the palace yesterday, after reading a draft of the amnesty proclamation, Senator Zayas said the liberals would approve of the proclamation, as their only wish now was to help the American government. The Guananbacoa case, of the murder of rural guards, is also included in the am nesty. It was mentioned several times with bitter words by Palma in all his latest messages. Amnesty in this case secures from prosecution the liberal senator Moruadelgado. to whom the moderates bear deadly hatred. Ten Years' War. The 10th of October, the anniversary of the beginning of the ten years' war agiins; Spain. Is going on peacefully. A great demonstration was made by the liberals In honor of Gen. Asbert, on his return home after the disarmament of his troops. Thousands cheered him at the Villa Nueva station. but there was no disorder. The rural guards stationed at Matanzas have been stent to Cienfuegos. and vice versa. In order to avoid displays of prejudice and party feeling by the guards, us in eacn case mey naa oeen quartered in tne town for a long time. With this change of garrisons much of the friction at Cienfuegos will disappear. The government will follow the same policy wherever it may be deemed necessary. There was much enthusiasm at a marts meeting held this morning at the Liberal Club, but perfect order was observed. The moderates are also very quiet, but their party is practically dissolved. FREIGHT TRAFFIC CONGESTED. Serious Situation Confronting Railway Men at Chicago. CHICAGO, October 10.?The congestion of freight traffic has increased so fast within the last few days that railway officials fear they are soon to be face to face with a blockade. Conditions on the eastern roads, which have not only to handle the uusinesn ? men iney originate uui nave tixe crops of the west pouring upon them for export, are naturally the worst, but those on the western lines also are rapidly becoming extremely serious. With the approach of winter the movement of coal has swiftly grown heavier, aggravating the congested conditions which already existed, and traffic men say that they do not know what they will do for c^rs when the year's enormous crop of com Is ready for market, as it will be now In a short time. A line belonging to one of the big eastern s> stems yesterday had orders for 4,23.r> cars, which it could not fill.

TAFT WILL SUPERVISE CUBAN AFFAIRS TO BE UNDER WAR DEPARTMENT CONTROL. Despite the fact that Judge Magonn will relieve Secretary Taft at Havana aa provisional governor of Cuba, the latter, on his return to Washington, win continue i? exercise supervisory control over the administration of affairs in the island as the immediate personal representative of the President. Secretary Taft will Act In the matter of Cuban affairs just as he does with regard to the affairs of the Philippine Islands and the Panama canal zone. The business affairs of those governments are under the supervision of the Secretary of War, and the records and accounts are kept in the bureau of Insular atiairs. That bureau Is well equipped for the service, and with a slightly Increased force can readily perform the additional work entailed by existing conditions In Cuba. The bureau Is the natural heir to this Cuban work, for the reason that it performed a similar service when United States troops occupied Cuban territory after the Spanish war. Capt. Frank Mclntyre is acting chief of the bureau in the absence of (Jen. Edwards. He was summoned to Havana to confer with Secretary Taft regarding the organization of the bureau for the new work, and is now on his : i w*Cy back to Washington to Diit the Sec- i retary's plans into effect. There is no present intention on the part j of the President to order additional troops : to Cuba. It is believed In official and military circles that the first brigade will be sufficient, with the marines, under the command of IJeut. Col. L. VV. T. Waller, to uphold tlie provisional government established by Secretary Taft. In order that the War Department may be in readiness to meet any emergency, however, complete preparations have bten made by the general staff for the embarkation for Cuba of a second expedition. These ! troops will not be sent unless the first brigade meets with some unlooked for obstacle. AN ALLEGED BOYCOTT THREAT AGAINST AMERICAN GOODS BY SOUTH AMERICA. NEW ORLEANS, October 10.-Printed circulars, threatening that South American countries wIH boycott the goods of American manufacturers who vote for President Roosevelt's principles in the next election, have been received by several New Orleans manufacturing firms. The circular, which is claimed to have been drafted in Caracas. Venezuela, on September 12, reads in part: "American manufacturers who vote the Roosevelt ballot in the next d residential election will be excluded from South American trade. "President Roosevelt has said In some recent speeches that the Latin-American countries are bound to disappear for two reasons, first, because they are Latin, and second, because they are small." The circular then says that the democratic party "Is disposed to fra.ternize with us and treat us on an equal basis." It says that 117 boycott stations already have been established, -but does not explain what is meant by boycott stations. The organization Is claimed to be on a military basis, entirely independent of South American governments, and better organized than the Chinese boycott. Thii r?1r<?iilar nails thin n r en n,l t i on thA "Sublime Brotherhood of Zapues." Apparently the circulars were mailed from San Jose, Costa Rica. NEW RATE BILL. Discussion by Commissioner Garfield in Buffalo. BUFFALO. N. Y.. October 10.?Governmental control of the corporations was the subject which Commissioner James R. Garfield of the bureau of corporations and industries of the Department of Commerce and Labor chose for his address before the Westminster Club last night. Mr. Garfield said that organized labor was just as important a part of our organized industrial system as was organized capital, and that organized labor was now going through the same conditions which organized capital | had gone through for fifty >v*rs. He said ' | that he had found among the leaders, as ! wMl :i* rnnk and file of nreaniziul labor. men who represented the highest type of? American citizenship, and that because now j and then a dishonest or unprincipled man | was found among them it was unfair to j criticise all organized labor from the same i viewpoint. Mr. Garfield dwelt at some length with | the new rate bill, which he said would throw light on the corporate interests. It Is now up to the government, he continued. to see that experts are hired who will be able to go over the books of the railroad companies: men who will be able to trace every penny and who will be able to tell when a rebate Is given, no matter in what form it is given. "I'nder this system the managers will be atraia to give reDates, ne saio. Continuing, he said the situation had simmered down to where it was simply a question of the government controlling the corporations or the corporations controlling tne government. Rich men are good to have, but, above all. we want men who have made their money honestly and not by financial jugglery and deceit. We don't want these sort of men. even though they do build monuments. They are the men who look upon life as the seeking of more money. The problems of capital and labor will not be solved by these men." Mr. Garfield said that the benefit of government regulation was shown in our national banking system. He admitted, however, that there could be some improvement in that. CHOKER'S LIBEL ACTION. His Attorney Applied for Permission to Serve Writ. DUBLIN, October 10.?In the four courts here this afternoon J. H. Campbell, Richard Croker's attorney In hi* libel action against the London Magazine, applied for permission to serve a writ on the Amalgamated Press, publishers of the magazine. The Amalgamated Press Is one of the Harmsworth companies, with headquarters In London. so It was necessary to obtain the sanction of the court to serve the writ outside the court's jurisdiction. Mr. Campbell pointed out that the Dublin agents of the defendant had served a writ on the plaintiff. Mr. Croker, he said, sought, In addition to recovering damages, to restrain the defendants from publishing certain "gross and defamatory statements concerning liim" under the heading of "Tammany In England." "Statements," counsel continued, "had been made therein which were entirely false and unfounded. The plaintiff had never, as alleged, derived any money or money's worth from his connection with any democratic organization in New York, Including Tammany Hall, save and except the salaries he received for the different offices he held in the civic administration of New York, 80 far from having at any time used his position for the purpose stated in the article, namely, blackmailing, bribing, corrupting and suborning, he had never as a matter of fact benefited, directly or indirectly, as alleged, and he did not then or at any time blackmail, bribe, corrupt or suborn any person or persons. He solemnly swore he had never knowingly done or suffered to be done any corrupt or Improper act for his personal benefit." Mr. Campbell pointed out that Ur. Croker lived near Dublin, so It was more expeditious to have the action tried in Dublin. It was of the utmost importance to him that he should have an early opportunity of vindicating his character. Justice Gibbon gave counsel permission tq serve the writ on the secretary of the Amalgamated Press. Jacob Young, night marshal at 8ylvester, Ga.. was shot and killed Monday night by B. F. Whitehead, clerk of Sykes pharmacy. The cash register had been robbed several times, and the clerk decided to watch. The night marshal was seen to break in the back door.

A COLD WIND FROM THE NORTH People in Line for Tickets at 0 O'Clock Today?Even Money Now on Besult. CHICAGO, October V.?Weather condl- I tlons for the second same for the world's base ball championship between Chicago teams of the National League and the American League were no more comfortable today than yesterday, but they were somewhat more cheerful. The clouds of yesterday gave way to bright sunshine todu.y but the temperature was lower, and a cold wind from the north blew straight Into the grand stand at the American League Park, where the game was played. The mercury this morning stood at 32 degrees, but rose slowly during the day. By 9 o'clock today people were commencing to gather at the gates of the park, although it was announced that no tickets would be sold for two hours. Yesterday's victory of the American League team caused a decided change in the betting, and even money was offered on the result of the series. Weather Kept Off Orowd. CHICAGO, October 10.?When the gates opened long lines of men and women were waiting for admission. Had it not been so cold it is believed by many oi l timers that the largest crowd ever seen on any base ball grounds in A? i? ? 1 J i i i j J. a /viiici k a nuuiu nave uceil UI1 nil IIU As it was. a steady stream passed through the gates from noon until time for the game to begin, at which time it was estimated that 10,000 people were on hand, with others still coming. Yesterday's Victory a Shock to Wise Men. Special Dispatch to The St*r. CHICAGO. 111., October 10.?Carl Lundgren will probably mount the hurling hill for the vanquished Cubs this afternoon. Cold weather is "Ludy's" specialty, and he will toll like a fiend to "pull It through. It's all up to Lundgren and his associates?a victory puts the two teams on even terms, a defeat puts the Cubs back so far that me Deiung wui ue a 10 1 againsi xnem. The odda today stand even money. The weather indications are propitious, and the prospects are that the crowd of yesterday will be exceeded tnis afternoon. Yesterday's game was an awful jolt to the wise men, the sure-thing calculators, and the 2 to 1 bettors. It was again demonstrated that a good left-hander can make the Cubs look like Chinamen at a clannagael banquet. All through the season Weimer, Wiltse. Druhot and other gents who shy with the sinister fln have made the Cubs frail and feeble. Against right-handers Chance and the gang have a composite batting average of about .370, against lefthanders they have hit .100. During the recent weeks N:ck Altrock lias been pitching superoly. Hfs last few games were marvels of skill and unhittable perfection. In short, Nick was never so good as in his recent battles. Tne Cubs found this out yesterday. He was the ideal pitcher to work against them, all things considered. For one thing. It was dark, and speed was effective. Nick has the speed. The Cubs can't hit left handers, and Nick Is a left-handed roan of genuine ability, and Is right now In form, hence Jones made a wise selection, and Nick's pitching was of the imperial kind. Nick's support was elegant. The Sox played a heady game behind him. yet a daring g.ime, full of fire and brilliancy. John Kllng. the great catcher of the cubs, was the one weik brother of the day. and his usually grand work had a gaping hiatus in its perfection. Two passed balls, and each oflhem counted terribly; a mu!T at the pan. admitting a runner?by the snakes of Urin, but it was a tough day for John. Brown pitched a game that would win nine games out of ten, and he lost because Altrock pitched a game that would win ten times out of eleven. The Cubs, sewed up in front of a le -hander, did their best, and put up great ha 11 So close was the play that there was I never a time when one more hit wouldn't I have tied the score and turned the scales. Naturally, the crowd, despite the horrible weather was Kept keyed up to the limit. Rain fell during the practice, and snow fell during the game. FOB DISTRICT GUARD.

Fast Signal Work by George Washington Squad. Real foot ball, such as delights the spec tators and makes the coaches smile, characterized the practice of the George Washington squad on University Field yesterday afternoon. After Coach Crowell had put two teams through fast signal work a regular game was started, the 'varsity kicking off to the scrubs and scoring a touchdown within five minutes of play. But on the next kick-off the strength of the scrub team, which lias recently had some valuable accessions, showed Itself, and for the remainder of the Play, lasting about twenty-five minutes, the second eleven had the better of .the contest. At the center of the field Whiting, who was playing left halfback, got away for a beaut ful run. which ended behind the goal posts. He kicked goal, which gave the scrubs a point on the 'varsity, the latter j I U.-..r<nr?

AT THE WHITE HOUSE Why the President Did Not Review Parade. GAVE BOYS A RECEPTION ! Which Took Place This Afternoon at 2:30 O'Clock. THE CABINET OFFICERS CONFER Will Proceed With Standard Oil Cases When Investigation is Complete ?Situation in Delaware. Much comment having been made over the failure of the President to review the procession of his Spanish war comrades yesterday afternoon, an inquiry was made by a representative of The Star today as to the reasons. It was stated on the best of authority that the question came up as to whether the President would review the procession, give a reception to the veterans or attend a banquet at which they would be present. He nnally aeciaea mat ne would give a reception, at which he would shake hands with each man, and that this would be all the time he would be able to spare. The reception took place at 2:B0 o'clock this afternoon. The fact that it is rare for a parade of this kind to go without review by the President caused much disappointment among the veterans until they learned the reason. Cabinet Officers Confer. Secretary Mctcalf, Secretary Bonaparte and Attorney General Moody visited the President at different times today. The former remained but a few minutes, the Secretary of the Navy twenty or thirty minutes and the Attorney General a short -time. When Mr. Moody was asked about the Standard Oil cases, and his attention called to a story that it is the Intention of the Department of Justice to postpone prosecution of the Standard people until after the election, he said that he had made nnthlnfir nf the snrt nuhli^ and had not talked about these cases for some time. When he was ready to do so he would take some time in carefully preparing a statement. He admitted that he is still conferring with his special assistants appointed to investigate the alleged violations of United States laws by the Standard Oil trust and that he means to continue the most thorough investigation it is possible to make. He has nothing to say at this time as to what he will do when he has acquired sufficient information to proceed. Rev. A. P. Doyle presented to the President Rev. Father Orosz. one of the best known ecclesiastics In Kurope, and Madame La Marquise <le Wentworth of Paris, Father Orosz Is from Edinburgh and Marquise de Wentworth Is the only American woman who was ever decorated with the Legion of Honor of France for distinction in painting. The Situation in Delaware. Representative Burton of Delaware, who has succeeded in getting through the various factional conventions in his own state without being opposed by any of them for the republican nomination for Congress, was a White House caller today. The situation in Delaware is badly muddled. Addicks has not been killed off as easily as was supposed and is still in the thick of the fight. Senator Allee, who did more than any other man to bring about the elimination of Addicks from control of party affairs in the siate, has himself fallen between the vengeance of Addicks and the greed of the faction that he aided in throwing Addicks out. Senator Allee helped the DuPont (antl-Addlcks) people to knife Addicts, and this faction forgot Tiim as soon ' l _ - -l.I_? 14 as possiDie ana Degan pictiiug up i?-?i *?.self all that was in sight. Addicks. with a long knife and his bosom rankling with hatred for Allee, seems to have completed the job of retiring the only senator the state has had. Representative Burton said today that there is only one state ticket In the field for the republicans, although some bolting county tickets. He saw no reason, therefore, why the republicans should not elect their state and congressional tickets without trouble. Taft on New YorkHenry W. Taft of New York, a brother of Secretary Taft, and several times regarded as the probable nominee of the republicans for governor of New York, called on the President today. Mr. Taft Is sanguine as to the election of Hughes. "I do not share in the belief of the Hearst people that he la going to do well outside of New York city, liis strength is in the city, and nowhere else, and the up-state wote will probably kill him for governor." Senator Sutherland of Utah, who is In Washington to argue a case In the Supreme Court, paid his respects to the President. He sjM thut ITtah will elect the republican candidates for office this fall. Representa- I tive Howell has been renominated by the republicans for the seat in the House belonging to Utah, and Mr. Sutherland does not expect any reduction of the usual republican majority. Carter oil Cuba. In a brief discussion of the Cuban situation as he was leaving the White House today Senator Carter of Montana expressed the opinion that it might be wise policy to give the people of Cuba another chance, though it was apparent they were not, | capable of self-government. He questioned, however, the wisdom of experiments in opera bouiTe governments. The senator retrariied annexation to the United States as ihe ultimate outcome. Senator Carter had a short talk with the President about Montana patronage. The President today received MaJ. John M. Burke of the Buffalo Bill show and Allison Nailor of this city. The Buffalo Bill show has just completed a four-year tour of Europe, and has returned to this country to take a rest until next year, when It will again begin a tour. "I can tell you two things," said Maj. Burke. "One is that Roosevelt is the bestknown man in the world, and the other is that we took the American Indian into every part of Europe." Army Orders. Col. John L. Chamberlain, inspector general, has been ordered to the National Soldiers' Home, Ellrabeth City county, Va., for the purpose of making the annual in spection of that home. Sergeant Jackson M.
