Discovery was made to-day by investigators for tho United States census bureau who are looking for divorce statistics in this city that man of tho divorce decisions in the old court of common pleas are inoperative because no decree of di vorce has been entered upon the re cords. In hundreds of cases in which the court has ordered that decrees of divorce or separation should issue ,the order for judgment has not been sub mitted to the court by counsel for the successful party. Thus no final order would issue. It is believed that in many such cases the parties to the divorce have been married again. It was stated to-day that such marriages are void and can only be legalized by action of the legi lature and'that such confusion and in convenience to the interested parties is certain to ensue. The court of common pleas is no lon ger in existence. ARMED MANIFESTATIONS. Made by Cuban Revolutionists State Department Informed. Washington, Aug. 20. Mr. .

NEW HAVEN, 10 DEMOCRATS WILL DO THIS WHETHER IT PLEASES HIM OR XOT. Action Irrespective of the Fnet Thnt He Has Announced He Does Not Care for the State Convention's Approval if R. C. Sullivan, of Chicago, is Allowed to Retain Position of National Com mitteeman Stormy Scenes Expected in the Convention. Peoria, 111., Aug. 20,-Whether it pleases him or not William J. Bryan will he endorsed as the next presiden tial candidate of the democratic party by the state convention lof the Illinois democracy, which will meet to-morrow. He will be endorsed Irrespective of the fact that he has announced that he does not care for the approval of the democrats of the state officially ex pressed, if Roger C. Sullivan of Chica go, is allowed by the convention to re tain the position of national committee men to which he was elected in 1904. It is expected that there will bo stormy times in the convention, much display of temper and a great deal of angry, talk, but all debates will lead to the same ending, which will be the en dorsement of Mr. Bryan. If his friends are successful In their attempt to gain control of the convention he will be approved as a matter of course. If the men to whom Mr. Bryan has said that he is opposed, are successful, they will endorse him. The friends of Mr. Bryan has been positive In their statements that if the convention does not call for the resignation of Sullivan as na tional committeeman, they will fight with all their strength against the pass, age of any resolution endorsing Mr. Bryan. If they are not a'blo to control the convention, and the indications to night seem to be against them, they will be unable to prevent the endorse ment from going through. So confident, in fact, are the Sullivan forces that the endorsement of Mr. Bryan is already drawn up. It con tains a little stinger to the effect that -while Illinois democrats are strongly in favor of Mr. Bryan, they also are em phatically in favor of home rule In poli tics without interference from the out side." The fight on the floor of the conven tion is expected to arise over the word ing of the resolution of endorsement, that wing of the party which claims to toe especially In his confidence desires that fn this resolution there shall be a condemnation of Sullivan, together with a request for his resignation. The Sul livan people are against the Insertion of any matter regarding Sullivan In the Bryan resolution, but say that they have no objection ti having It brought up in the convention as a separate af fair. The outlook to-night Is that the con- ventlon will scustaln Sullivan, refuse to ask for his resignation, do nothing that Bryan demands. The action for or against Sullivan and consequent control of the party, is the actual issue In the convention. The Chicago delegation and their friends, 1,000 strong, reached Peoria to night and paraded through the streets cheering and hearing tranparencies favorable to Sullivan.

Smith and New berry were arraigned before Magistrate Higginbotham, John F. Calderwood, vice-president and general manager of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit, and Tim othy, F. Williams, its treasurer, were held in $2,000 bail.

Appoints General Montnlvo to be In Direet Charge of All Military Opera tions Against tho Insurgents In creases the Rural Guards to 4,000 Many Men Who Served Against Spain Offer Hlin Their Services. Havana, Aug. 20. The increasing un easiness over insurrectionary manifes tations in the western part of Cuba was quieted to a slight degree this evening by a decree of President Palma appointing General Rafael Montalvo, secretary of public works, to be in di rect charge of all military operations against the insurgents. President Palma also decreed the in crease of the rural guards to four thousand, the number contemplated in Llm bill Introduced at the last session of congress. Many men who served as officers in the Cuban revolution against Spain to day visited or telegraphed to President Palma, tendering him their services for tho suppression of the insurrection. A special train to-night took 100 ru ral guards from Santa Clara and fifty artillerymen from Havana to Pinar del Rio. Not even the railroad officials have been informed of the precise point of disembarkation of these forces. It is evident that the Pinar del Rio insurgents are concentrating in the vi cinity of the city of Pinar del Rid in tent on occupying It for their head quarters. Both the government and the West ern railway telegraph wires were cut this afternoon between Consolacion Del Sur and Pinar del Rio for several hours. Finally a guarded train took workmen from Pinar del Rio and re paired' the lines. The workmen were not molested, but it is expected that the telegraph wires will be cut again. To-night the telephone wires in that region were also cut. Numberless ruvors are afloat of fighting in the western province of Ha vana, but the only facts that have ma terialized are that Bandera's band, which has been Increased to seventy, while proceeding near the' railroad be tween Guanajay and San Antoiflo de Los Oanos, encountered eight rural guards, who immediately surrendered, were disarmed and let go. Other small er bands have gone out In that vicin ity, and probably will concentrate with the Banderas force. The latter has at tacked and rifled stores, and stolen mules and horses at pleasure. The barM stopped' one railroad train and shot at an automobllo. " Many revolutionists are reported to have left Guanajay, including Colonel Llaneras, who was captured -with a ne gro companion, and . a coach loaded with arms, ammunition, medicines and twenty machettes. Several more arrests were made to day In Havana of persons suspected of aiding the insurrection. Some small quantities of arms and ammunition have been seized. The house and senate to-day after a conference with Secretary of State O' Farrill, adopted resolutions declaring that tho members would endeavor to secure, Jointly and personally, the re establishment of order. The mayor of Consolacion Del Sur has been suspended on suspicion of as sisting the Insurgents, and other offi cials aro suspected. A conspiracy has been discovered at Matanzas, and the authorities are In possession of a list of names of those alleged to bo connected with the plot, several of 'Whom have been arrested. There Is considerable discussion as to whether, in the event of Cuba be ing unable to suppress the Insurrec tion she should ask the united States for assistance or whether the United States may not Intervene under the terms of the Piatt amendment with out such request toeing preferred. In the meantime the government assumes that it is entirely atole to cope with the situation, although the condition of unrest many continue for several weeks. MANCHURIA ON A REEF. Pacific Mall Steamer Stranded Near Honolulu Honolulu, Aug. 20. The Pacific Mail Steamship company's steamship Man churia is on the reef at Rabbit Island. The wind is beginning to blow and the sea is rising about the Manchuria, which is making her position one of considerable peril, despite the land pro tection from the swell. The Kllau, the largest of the inter island steamers, has gohe to join the fleet at the scene of the disaster. Governor Carter Is among those who have gone in automobiles to bring friends to their homes. Some of the passengers, including General Smith, and the mails will be brought to Hon olulu at once.

Rabbit Island does not appear on the maps, and its exact location is not known here. It presumably is off the south coast of Oahu, in the vicinity of Honolulu, where the vessel is due t0 arrive to-day. THE CAT? KINGTON PUBLISHING CO. ROOSEVELT SENDS SYMPATHY.

About the mid dle of the afternoon officers appeared underneath the grand stand nd arrest ed one of the pool sellers, tout this did not seivo even as an interruption. The man was taken to Dedham, where he was Immediately bailed, and when his case comes up in court to-morrow it is expected that an appeal will be taken, and the case carried to the supreme court to test 'tho law. Brilliant Girl was a strong favorite In all three races of the Blue Hill event. In the first race, however, her sulky wheel struck that of Czarina Dawson, and the mare toroke. She had a lead at the time, tout recovered herself, and finished in second place to Captain Bacon. The finish was so fast thaf 'Captain, Bacon was forced to make a new mark of 2:10 3-4.
