Assurance Given New York
Financial Interests in Case
of Democratic Success.
Promise Regarded in '"the Street" as
the Feature of the Campaign.
Caucus of Members-Elect of New
House Proposed to Be Held
Next Winter to Outline
NEW YORK. October 2?>.?Mr. Wilson.
1f elected President, will not call an extra
session of Congress to revise the tariff.
Jle will wait until the regular session in
the following December and take counsel
in the meantime with his cabinet and
leading men of his party.
This statement can be made upon absolute
authority. It is based upon a
, promise from Mr. Wilson through his
managers to important financial interests
in this city. Those interests accustomed
n? nit- ouservanee or contracts among
business men and of adherence to verbal
acreements confidently expect Mr. Wilson
to carry out his word.
There is no written communication upon
the subject. It is simply a matter of understanding;
"a gentlemen's agreement."
This state of affairs Is known now to the
most intluential financial people down
"the street" and Is being communicated
to business interests at large.
May Win the Wavering.
The first efTect of it undoubtedly will be
to replen.sh the depleted coffers of the
democratic campaign committee. The
next effect expected Is to bring to Mr.
Wilson's support certain strength whieu
up to this time may have been classed
as wavering?tnat is to say. some of tn?
business element which feared the accession
of the democratic party to power in
the nation.
The' assurance thai Mr. Wilson does
not intend to call an extra session or
Congress is regarded in high nnanciat
circ.es here as the most important feature
of the campaign at this .ime. As
these dispatches have stated, big business
regards Mr. Wilson's election as assured.
To know that there will be cessation
of cong.essional ac.ivity between
March 4 next and the first Monday In
l>ecember. lOl.'i, means more by way or
comfort to the financial interests than
ordinary folks can imagine.
Radicals May Insist.
It is understood, of course, that efforts
may lie made to upset this program of
peace and prosperity. There will be
democrats in Congress who will insist
upon immediately getting out the broad- (
axe and hacking away at the tree. Some
of the radical democrats desire to have |
an unofficial caucus of the members-elect
of the next House next winter to adop.
a line of policy for the new administration.
If this caucus should declare in favor
of an extra session, Mr. Wilson
would be placed in an embarrassing portion.
However, the new Congress will be advised
by word of mouth of the understanding
between Mr. Wilson and the
financial and business interests and may
be dissuaded from a radical course.
Big Business Content.
But that is a bridge yet to be crossed. I
The main fact is that as the case now
-tands big business rests content witn
the prom.se of Mr. Wilson that he does
not intend to raise any ruction.
On many a nearby golf linn tnls beautiful
afternoon smug and contented finan- !
tiers are pacing the green and giving
never a thought to election day. Assured
mat "they've got theirs" they are not
worrying about the rest of it

Bochester Besident Sure He Had
Found Dorothy Arnold.
ROCHESTER. N. Y.. October lit*.?For a
few hours last night a Rochester man
thought he had found Dorothy Arnold,
the wealthy New York girl vyho disappeared
two years? ago. Remarks made by
an attractive young woman he met in a
hoarding house led him to visit a newspaper
office in quest of photographs of
tin missing heiress. The resemblance, he
thought, was perfect, so he immediately
rushed to a telephone and called up the
home of the Arnolds in New York
"J have found your daughter," he told
Mrs. Arnold.
Hut when he described the girl the color
of her eves was wrong and the reu..r??.
blance failed in other partlulars.
Mr*. Arnold agreed to pay the telephone

President Taft Advocates Low I
Interest to Farmers.
Suggests That His Hearers Advocate (
Action by States.
Believes in International Arbitra- ?
tion?Speeches Made at Meadvine
and Other Places.
MBADVIJLLE. Pa.. October 20.?President
Taft asked the farmers of western c
New York and Pennsylvania today to ^
support his plan for co-operative banks
that will loan money to farmers at low t
interest rates. He suggested that tlie
legislators in Washington would approve ^
the plan, but urged the farmers to use t
their influence with members of state ,
legislatures to have the states act upon it.
The President spoke at Jamestown, N.
Y.; Corry, Union City and Meadville. Pa.
There were crowds out to hear every n
speech. He left here shortly after noon for
Cambridge Springs, where he made s
an address at the dedication of the National
Polish Alliance College. The President's
Jamestown speech was typical. He c
talked not only of farmers' banks, but
of prosperity and of peace and war. He
declared he was not making a political ^
journey. He said, in part:
"I congratulate you on the evidences
of prosperity that show themselves in *
this community. The country at large
in every respect at present seems fortunate.
At Peace With the World. 1
"We are not engaged in war with anybody.
I wish we could be assured that j
we never would be." ?
He referred to the treaties he negotiat- g
ed with England and France looking to g
international arbitration, and said: n
"We never can dispense with an army 1
and with a navy until every nation can
be assured that there is some method of w
determining international controversies F1
by peaceable means. But until then as a tl
nation we owe it to ourselves and we H
owe it to the world to be prepared to as- C
sert^ our rights and defend our shores. A
"Now, 1 am especially interested and li
have been since I was in the Philip- ?
pine Islands, because there we had the t<
question in an acuter form, of making
ihe credit to our farmery such that rr
.hey can borrow money and eqyip their nr
farms in the best way and make them N
produce the most. The truth is. our bi
mouths are more than catching up Y
with our production, and if we don't t*
look out we will have a people so J.
large in number that we will have to a
import food in order to feed it. Of ci
course, I look ahead tifty or one hundred
years, but fifty or one hundred years it
.s not a great space in the life of a p<
nation. ai
TTJ t. *1 - A_ A A.
Alga aaie 01 interest. w
"Now when we find that on the average
our farmers have to pay interest to
.anks, and to our people from whom they
sorrow, nearly twice as much as they
do in Europe, don't you see the disad?antage
under which they labor in mak- t]
.ng their farms, and equipping them so
they can produce the most. It is possible
.o adopt the system they have in Europe. c
It involves governmental action on the
ine hand and co-oi erative action by the <j,
farmers on the other, but if you can re- ~
duce the rate of interest that they pay, *
from 8 to 5 per cent, and there is no reason y
why you snould not, because there is c.
lothing so certain as what comes out of he
ground, if it is held in the right way. *"
k> that those who lend the money can
be certa!n of their payment then it puts
..i e farmer on a basis of advantage with >
respect to all persons that is certain to ?
mprove the farmer, to add to his profit '
on the one hand and to add to his prod- ^
uct on the other.
"Now, my friends. I want to put that
seed into your mind so as to make youi
state legislature take some action. At '
Washington J don't think it is necessary .
.o help, because they are willing and
will do so, but if we can move on it that
way we shall do something that will not S
only help farmers, but will help all the ;
people and all the world besides." *
Addresses Crowd at Jamestown. e
JAMESTOWN. N. Y., October 2S.?Sev- j
eral thousand persons were at the Erie t
station this morning to greet President n
Taft when he stopped here for fifteen "
minutes on his way to Cambridge ^
Springs, Pa. lie spoke for ten minutes
from the car platform of his special
"I congratulate you." said he, "upon
the evidence of prosperity I saw in your r<
busy factories as I came into the city, q
which is only an evidence of the pros- e]
perity of the entire country. Our exports
and imports for the present year jr
are the greatest in the history of the na- .
lion, aggregating more than $4,000,OuO,- ?ouO.
None of us know just what these p
figures mean except in scene, but we ,
do know they show the wonderful progress
our country is making.
Defends the Treaties. *
"I congratulate you that our country is ?)
free from war with any nation and I ?
wish we had assurances that it might ^
always remain so. And we could have y
such assurances if the treaties which I L
have negotiated with Kngland and Ger- 11
many and France were ratified and
adopted between all the civilized coun- o!
tries of the world. n
"I am pre-eminently a man of peace,
and yet 1 yield to no man my feeling of
pride in the splendid naval display which
I recently witnessed at New Yoik. It
showed that in case xve had to defend n'
our country we were in readiness to do e<
so, and in case we had to hit at all we v
could hit hard. The rivalry among the r,
nations of the earth today compels us to
continue the building of battleships, but r'
1 would like to see an international court j V
established with the great powers to a
j which could be submitted the grievance ^
I of any nation that had a grievance, with p
the feeling that it could and would be u
amicably adjusted. c.
Peace Without Battleships. jj
"When that time comes we can disI
pense with the bui.ding of great battle- ?
ships and reduce our navy to a reason- o
- fcj
able coast defense." C
President Taft concluded liis address
with a plea for federal action which
would result In the creation of a system
of loans to farmers for agricultural purposes
and which would enable them to
get money at a low rate of interest for
the operation of their farms and improving
the soil so as to increase production.

State Department Advised of \
Riots in Havana Due
to Election.
Advices to the State Department from
Havana confirming the reported clash be- v
tween rival political factions state that a
nineteen persons were wounded, some of 8
them fatally. Minor disturbances in other w
sections of the city also occurred, but or- ti
der was restored by t.he rural guards. w
None of the dispatches from the American
legation expresses alarm over the sit- 1
uation., t<
Between now and next Friday, the elec- d
Jlon day in Cuba, many political meet- ti
ings are to be held throughout the island,
with indications that there may be clashes "
between the two great parties. Even if a:
the Gomez government is able to handle a
these pre-election riots it. is predicted that j
the defeated party will not. abide by the .
result, but will break out in open revolution.

President Will Be Impartial. e
In the opinion of the Cuban minister, r
Senor Rivero, there is no foundation for
the reports that President Gomez is seek- ^
ing to resign his office at this critical mo- 9
ment, and he is positive that the presi- a
dent wil maintain an attitude of strict im- j,
partiality. f,
The minister himself has been in con- ^
ference with the State Department otfi- n
cials here in regard to the situation, g
which he asserts is within the control of s
President Gomez's government. "
Meanwhile the general staff of the army
has a workable project for the dispatch
to Cuba of a sufficient force?probabiy
about 15.000 men?to take dharge of the
island if conditions arise, corresponding Ii
to those prevailing when the Palma ad- c
ministration collapsed, making it necessary
for the United States to occupy the a
island. tl

Strolls m Sunshine, But Finds
Going Up Hill to Be
OYSTER BAY, N. Y.. October 26.?For
the first time since his return to Oyster
Bay Col. Roosevelt went out of doors
today. It was a warm, sunny day, and j
the colonel was impatient to be out. I
Dr. George W. FaJler thought that he
would be benefited by being in the open '
and told him; that if he would walk slow- '
ly and not stay out more than an hour i
he might stroll around near the house. 1
Col. Roosevelt walked half way down
the hill, saying that he "felt bully." When r
he began to climb up again, however, he v
found that it was not so easy as he e
thought, for he was still weak.
When the colonel's chauffeur, after his t
morning trip to the village, started back
for Sagamore Hill he had with him a
dozens of packages which half filled the 0
automobile. They were birthday pres- ?
ents for the colonel, which had come from
many parts of the country and a few of r
them from abroad. fl
Col. Roosevelt will be fifty-four years li
old tomorrow. He expects to celebrate
his birthday by taking a short walk with o
Mrs. Roosevelt, if it Is a dear day. E
Col. Roosevelt's secretary came to Oys- k
ter Bay this morning and the colonel n
went on with the preparations of the n
speech he is to deliver in New York next J
week. 1
