as'8. FBICE TWO CE2TTS. KEW HAVEN, CONX.. THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 28 1905, THE CAEEnfGTOX TUELKIIIXG CO. SECRETARY TAFT TELLS OF HiS TRIP TO ORIENT SITUATION IN PHILIPPINES NOT AS GOOD AS IT OUGHT TO BE. Wave of Lailronlxm Has Swept Over Cavite and Saiunr It Suppression Immediate Independence Advocated I7 Some of the Younger of the Edu cated 9Ien Mo Possible Hope of This Short of a Generation and ProDably a Much Longer Period. San Frstaclsco, Sept. 27. In an inter view with the Associated Press repre sentative. Secretary of War W. H. Taft, who arrived to-day on the Korea from the Philippines, said: "Reports coming from the Philip pine Islands seemed to indicate that it would tie wise for the head of the war department to make a visit of inspec tion to the islands during the past sum mer, and his going with a sufficient stall was thought to present a good opportunity to form a party of con gressmen, senators and representatives to visit the islands as' guests of the Philippine government. The Philippine government was poor and was unable to do more -than arrange for the pass age money of the congressmen who would form part of the party. This did not Include the sleeping car accommo dations or the meals along the way, and, Indeed, left the congressmen to defray from their own pockets by far the larger part of the actual traveling expenses. The party as organized con sisted of twenty-three representatives . and seven' senators. Of these thirteen were accompanied by their, wives. In, addition Miss Alice Roosevelt, her friends. Miss Boardman and Miss Mc Millan, were of the party, and then a number 'of .'other persons, pleasant as sociates, joined the, tarty, numbering about fifty 'people, and the unofficial party, about eighty more." Here the secretary referred to the fine receptions accorded the party in Japan and Manila and continued: 'TChe polit ical situation in some respects was not as good as it ought to be. A wave of ladronlsm has spread over the province of Cavite. The same is true o Samar, but the use of troops on Samar and the use of the scouts and .constabulary in . Cavite has put an end to this? bus iness; however, there weretwo or three men responsible for the keeping up of the ladronlsm, who had not been cap tured.' - ? "Some of the younger men of educa tion have been advocating Immediate independence. It therefore becomes necessary to state with considerable emphasis the policy of the administra tion on this subject, and to say that in the opinion of the administration there was no possible hope for independence short of a generation because the peo ple could not be fitted for self-govern- ' ment in that time, indeed, it will prob ably take a much longer period . The party consisted, as is. known, of demo cratic, as well as republican senators and congressmen and . they, in inter views represent all sides Of the Philip pine questions, but with a self-restraint and moderation which cannot be too highly commended, it was tacitly agreed between the members of the congressional party on both side that It would be most unwise for them to discuss before the Filipinos their dif ferences of opinion, and therefore that any statement should be made by the representative of the administration as to the policjr of political administration. Hence, the sight which some of the ir reconsilible Filipinos had hoped for, to wit: A constant combat between repub lican and democratic members, with the Filipinos people as an audience, was not presented and I cannot express too emphatically my appreciation of the patriotic stand which our democrat Is brethren took in this matter. "AH the days in Manila were spent by . the congressmen in investigating " agricultural conditions in view of the possible effect of a possible change in the tariff on the Philippine production of tobacco and sugar. An opportunity was also given to those Flllpinlos strongly In favor of immediate inde pendence to present their views. All this was reported and will be circulat ed, doubtless, in a congressional docu ment. "With 'reference to the boycott in Canton and China, my impression is that it Will fade out because of the ne cessity that the Chinese merchants are under,1 of patronizing America to buy what will be in great demand in Man churia. Suggestions were made of pos sible amendments in the exclusion laws which, without in any way opening the doors to the coolie class, would remove the stigma which the present regula tions, it is insisted, put upon the class es entitled to enter. I have those sug gestions from merchants in Hong Kong and elsewhere, and shall present them to the president. The president's proc lamation and assurance that justice would be done the Chinese had an ex cellent effect. ' "Many of the people in Japan are dis appointed at the .terms of peace, but the great sober majority of that people, I am sure, are deeply grateful that peace has come, and grateful to President Roosevelt for his assistance in bringing It about and conscious of the fact that Japan was under a great strain and that true statesmanship required that when she could make an honorable peace she should do so. "The peace is honorable in that she accepted everything, and had she con tinued the war for the indemnity she would simply be in the attitude of fighting for money. There is not, in my Judgment, the slightest fear that the people of Japan will not continue to be as friendly to America and Ameri cans as our reception in July showed that they were then," R EFUNDING OPERATIONS. Secretary of Treasury Announces That They Are to be Resumed. Washington, Sept. 27. The secretary of the treasury makes the announce ment that on the second of October next he will resume refunding opera tions under the act of March 14, 1900, receiving 4 per cent bonds of the fund ed loan of 1907 and 3 per cent, bonds of the loan of 1908-1918, at a valuation equal to their present worth, to yield an annual Income of 2 per' cent., and issuing in place thereof -2 per cent, bonds, consols of 1930, at 101, subject to discontinuance at any time without no tice. The secretary announces that his purpose is not to stimulate circulation, but to gradually reduce the amount of indebtedness maturing in 1907 and 1908. He deems it better to get some of the present indebtedness out of the way be fore any great volume of isthmian ca nal bonds are issued. ISSUE OF TRANSFERS Decision That Street Railway Company Has Right of Restriction. Boston, Sept. 27. The state railroad commissioners decided to-day that a street railway company has the right to restrict the issue of its free trans fers, and in so ruling declared that there can be no question but that the issue of free transfers has been over done. The decision was in the case of the Boston and Northern street rail way, which asked the right to discon tinue the issue of certain transfers in the Reading district. MURDER STILL A MYSTERY PROGRESS, HOWEVER, MADE IN DRESS SUIT CASE CRIME. Boston Police Now Attach Great Im portance to Discovery That Two Dress Salt Cases Were Purchased Last Week in a South End Pawn Broker's Shop Attention Again Di rected to Fashionable Back Bay Dis trictThe Blonde Hairs. Boston, Sept 27 After nearly a week of the most untiring and diligent in vestigation by thepolice departments of this city, the state and Wlnthirop, tho identity of "the unknown woman, whose dismembered body was found in a dress suit case in the waters of Winthrop bay, remains unknown, and no positive clew to the perpetrator of the revolting crime has been discovered Considerable progress,, however, has been made, and the police feel assur ed that a number of articles found have a pertinent bearing on the: crime and will lead to the ultimate apprehension of the culprit. The police attach the greatest impor tance to the discovery that two dress suit cases were purchased last week in a South End pawn broker's- shop. The drees suit case in the possession of the state police has beeifldentifled by Jo seph Berkman, the pawnbroker, as one that a stranger purchased. The author ities are of the opinion that the missing memlbers of the woman's body were placed in the other dress suit case- and disposed of In a similar manner. The facts of the, purchase of the dress suit cases in the South End, and the Wrapping paper, which were about the bundle of clothes found on the Win throp shore, coming from . 2 Dalton street have directed attention, again to the Back Bay district, and to the pos sibility of the deed having been com mitted there. This is somewhat strengthened by the allegation that a man brought the large drees suit case to be repaired b'y a harness maker near Dalton street. , . Three blonde hairs promise to play a significant part in the investigation. Three finds have been made by the po lice or by citizens, and In each Instance a blonde hair has accompanied the find. The report of the medical examiner contained the assertion that the woman was a blonde. The three hairs will bo submitted to a microscopic examina tion to determine the likeness as to color and texture.

New York, Sept. 27 To-day's session of the legislative committee to investi gate insurance methods was given over to inquiring further into the syndicate transactions of the Equitable Life As surance society. Henry R. Winthrop, assistant secretary and financial man ager of the society, was again the wit ness, and many of his statements were accompanied by typewritten documents giving the various transactions in de tail. It was brought ou that in one of these syndicates Senator Chauncey M Depew was a participant to the extent of $100,000, and the senator was re quested to appear before the committee. Mr. Winthrop was unable to find where a record of the profits from a number of the syndicate transactions was made, but expert accountants now at work on the books of the society are expected to unearth these later. The witness also detailed a number of loans to the Equitable Trus tand Mer cantile Trust companies, as well as the sharing of these companies In syndi cate transactions with the Equitable society. Late in the day Henry Greaves, who was a clerk for George H. Squire, for merly a member of the finance commit tee, was called to supply some infor mation regarding the "George H- Squire Trustee," account, and from him it was learned that there were a number of these accounts. There was, beside the "George H. Squire Trustee" t account, "the MarcelhiSj Hartley trustee "ao count" and another, the "J. W- Alex ander trustee" account. Mr. Greaves produced the bank book of the Squire account, and by means of it Mr. Hughes tried to trace amounts that would correspond to profits to this ac count, but the witness could, hot re member the items deposited, Mr, Greaves was still on the stand when the session adjourned for the day. Mr. Greaves, however, gave way tem porarily to Mr. Winthrop, whom, Mr. Hughes queried further regarding syn dicates. Mr. Winthrop was asked to furnish a list of the individual partici pants in the syndicates, and said that President Morton was preparing such a statement. Mr. Winthrop said he had no positive Information Of the James H. Hyde and associates syndicates, but he expects- he will have. Mr. Winthrop said that in the Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington and Long Island four syndicate managed by Kuhn, Lbeb & Co., there were two participants, one of $500,000, the other of $100,000. The so ciety derived profits of $2,385 on the $100,000, while J. W. Alexander, J. H. Hyde, G. H. Squire, and W. II. Mcln tyre divided the profits on the $500,000. The Equitable put up $218,100. It has received no interest, neither has the money been returned, and when asked If the matter had been called to the at tention of these gentlemen Mr. Win throp said: "It will be." When the session opened to-day Sen ator Armstrong announced the serious illness of S. Fred Nixon, speaker of the assembly, and said that in the event of his death the committee would instant ly adjourn. Jacob H. Schiff, of Kuhn, Loeb & Co., was subpoenaed to-day, and it is ex. pected he will appear to testify to. morrow or Friday. Mr. Schiff will be asked about the transactions of his firm with the New York Life Insurance company, as well as with the Equitable Life Assurance society. NEW RUSSIAN LOAN. Paris Branches of American Firms Re ceive Inquiries. Paris, Sept. 27. Banking circles here are much interested in the anticipated neW Russian loan. The Paris branches of American firms have received cable inquiries from New' York regarding this loan, Indicating a possible Ameri. can participation in it. The "loan Is also the leading topic on the bourse. The best Informed financiers place the amount of the loan at $150,000,000 dlvid. ed between Paris and Berlin, but bank ers forming part of the syndicate which took up the last loan said to-day that details as to rates and terms of the proposed loan had not yet been decid ed upon. They said, however, that the rate probably would be 4 1-2 per cent, the bonds selling at about par. Rus- sian imperial fours sold to-day at 94.70, showing that 4 1-2 per cent, bonds would be worth about par.

Impossible, lie Declares, to Continue ' the Cnmpntgn Within the Bounds of the law Revolution the Only Rem edy but He Cannot Accept Responsl- '. blllty of Plunging Country Into War. Havana, Sept. 27 Jose Miguel Go mez. governor of the province of San ta Clara, who was nominated by the liberals, for the jresldence, has resign ed Ms eandidacy. In letters to the ex- peranve"TeommltteB of his party he gives the reasons for his action, laying part of the blame on the United States ow ing to the Piatt amendment. Governor Gomei says: "It Is Impossible to continue the cam paign within the bounds of the law. The gover nment has won a complete and overwhelming victory. With liber als by the hundred in' the jails and with the rifles of armed forces and even the daggers of hired assassins against the breasts of Unarmed voters, the problem onfrontingv'u is . whether I should continue to lead my followers to the polls and jiermlt their becoming the victims of this sort of treatment. One other road is open, that followed by other nations In analogous circum stances, namely, the right of revolu tion; but Cuba stands in a peculiar po sition,, as art .armed conflict would Inev itably bring foreign intervention. Be fore this was accomplished, however, our material prosperity would run grave danger and property which Is to a great extent in foreign hands, would be destroyed, while the neutral ele ments would suffer. Therefre, I, who had the courage to rebel against Spain, which , was one hundred times stronger than Palma's government, decline to accept the responsibility of plunging the country into war, least of all at a time when there might be the slightest suspicion that I had done so to satisfy my personal ambitions for the presiden cy. "I am a Cuban soldier. I love order and peace and prefer to leave to my adversaries the sombre glory of their triumph along the criminal path where they have slain Cuban Hbirtles. For these reasons I entreat my party to :iu. cept this irrevocable resignation " Sehar Sayas, the liberal candidate for vice president, said to the Associated Press td-nlght that a national conven tion of the party would probably be called for next Sunday.

RIOTS IN BUDAPEST; MANY PERSONS INJURED SOCIALISTS AND ADHERENTS OF . THE COALITION PARTIES CLASH. Former Charge Latter With Trying to Sidetrack Their Rights Vnder Cover of an Alleged Affront by the Klug Emperor to the Whole Notion In flammatory Proclamations i4iied and an Attempt Made to WracK the Inde pendence Club, Budapest, Hungary, Sept 27. Be tween forty andl fifty persons were in jured in riots here this evening, when socialists and adherents of the coalition parties; including students, clashed op posite the Royal hotel, and for two hours there were scenes of tremendous excitement- . The Royal hotel is the headquarters of the Independence club, in which Is the council room of the coa lition leaders. ' .- The students and other supporters of the coalition had arranged for a big torchlight procession to-night, but dur ing the day the socialists issued in flammatory proclamations calling on all socialists and others opposed to the coalition to gather and fight for their rights, which they said the coalition was trying to sidetrack under cover of an alleged affront by the king-emperor to the whole nation. Owing to these proclamations the coalition leaders de cided to postpone the torchlight proces sion, seeking thus to avoid bloodshed. At 8 o'clock ; about 1,500 socialists gathered outside the Independence club and announced their intention of enter ing and tearing down the council-room. A large force of police was presented and was assisted by 150 of the leading citizens. '- The mob made an effort to enter, but was vigorously opposed by the police. A fight ensued and amid the wildest clamor,, a; number of persons were stabtfed, but the. socialists were finally scattered. Fifteen minutes later, how ever, the socialists again gathered. By this time adherents of the coalition in large numbers appeared upon the scene and their appearance resulted In a free fight between ' the two faotions. A dense mass Of humanity surged in every direction, shouting and singing the Marseillaise and other songs. Knives, sticks and stones were used vigorously. ;, . In themeanwhlle a : thunder storm came Up and vivid lightning lit up the square; while the thunder added a note of terror. . Rain , fell in torrents and dampened the ardor of the combatants, who were finally dispersed by the po lice. !T It is reported,', that over forty persons were wounded,. ight of them seriously. There were no deaths. Scattered fights continued in different quarters and a section of the socialists marched to s, building in which is pub lished ft newspaper that supports the coalltldn, whore they broke the win dows and attempted to gain an en trance. The mob was held back by the police, while? the printers and editors threw furniture from the windows on the heads of the crowd. - Here, too, a number of persons received wounds. Finally quiet was' restored, and up to 10 o'clock there was no renewal of the disorders.' , It is hot thought that the rioting of to-night -will havo any effect on the general situation, , which certainly has grown worse, while the feeling through out Hungary against the dynasty is in creasing. Among well-informed per sons it is believed that better counsel will prevail after the first flush of pas sion dies-away. TIGERS SWAMP VILLA NOVA. Score 41 to 0 Cornell Has Hard Game With Hamilton.
