Rebei Claim Americans Cajoling. TAFT READyTfKECESS ARY PROCLAIM jELF GOVERNOR Congress Meets In That Island Tomorrow When CrlclsMay Be Reached. Havana, Sept.' 27. In spite of the Bpirll of conciliation in which both moderate and liberal leaders appear ed before the commissioners last night, Secretary of War Taft and As sistant Secretary of State Dacon to day received a confidential report that the government officials are act ing unfairly and have no Intention to i promote a compromise along the lines suggested iu Tuffs proposals to President Palma. The commissioners feel that the crisis will be preclpi'at od on the convening of the Cuban congress tomorrow, and are prepar ing to take hold then if necessary. Should the landing of American forces be required Secretary Taft will take over the government instantly. Ho has received authority from Pres ident Roosevelt to take this extreme step, in which event he will proclaim himself governor. Brigadier General Funston arrived here today on the steamer Olivette.

Havana, Sept. 27. Among men whoso Investments would bo doubled or quadrupled In vuluo there Is natur ally loud assertion that Cuban self government is a fail ure. That Is, that government without revolutions is Impossible. A surprising feature of tho situation is tho large number of men. apparently without selfish interest, who take tho same view of tho matter. Not all of them as sign tho same reason, but they reach the same conclu sion. Temperament, habit, greed and limited experience In self-government are somo of the reasons given. "They haven't any conception of popular govern ment," says an American who has lived here for years. "During P, J.h yCear' f Spanish oppression the only object -a matt bad lu' nening oi'flcu vas to advance his own, generally his financial interest. The only way the people could protest against tyranny was to got out and fight. Law and Justice, during Spanish rule, were held in tight regard or no regard at all. "So tt happens that too many peoplo hero are lia ble to overstep tho law In advancing their interests as officeholders or p vol est lug against Injustice ns citizens They have not learned the rulo of bowing to tho major ity and squaring acounts peaceably at the next election.

If the fellows now In office, or a large proportion of them, should be thrown out, they would be In the woods nsldo of six mouths." Another veteran said that no agitator could ever suffer for want of a following. Tho long struggle for freedom developed a great number of unselfish soldiers ud some who would rather fight.' for pay than work. The latter are ready ut any time to follow a leader who jan pay or show good prospects.

Placed In Control of Bureau of Immigration In Commerce and Labor Department ANARCHIST ORPOLYGAKiST CANNOT BECOME CITIZEN Neither Can One Who Can Not Speak and Write the ' English Language. Washington. D. C, Sept. 17. The new law passed by congress during its , last session went into effect to day. It Is a general law applicable to all parts of the . United States and places all matters pertaining to the naturalization of foreign horn pet sons, who wish, to become natural ized American' citizens - under the control and supervision of the bu reau of immigration and naturaliza tion, which forms a, division of the department' ' of commerce and labor and. ls headed by the commissioner general of Immigration, Richard K. Campbell, of Virginia.' ' ' Since the adoption of the new law copies have been sent to all parta of the United 'States, to Instruct the courts and court" officials of the var ious' counties and states 1 regarding their rights and duties. The law pro vides that every alien- landing in this country shall bo registered by the national bureau of Immigration and shall obtain a certificate of record, setting forth the date of his arrival, tho name of the ship, etc. This cer tificate must be presented when the application for. the first papers Is made. -....... ' The method of obtaining the first p'apers U only a little more exacting than formerly,' A full- description ht the ' applicant must be 'given, with his- full name, religious belief, place of birth, etc., down tt he exam date of his arrival in this, country and ib ' name of the ship which brought him. He must also awear that he is neith er an -anarchlBt' nor a Dotygaralat. ; Some radical rhaagoa : have - been made In the method or obtaining the final naturallzHtlon papers. . The ap plicant must have lived In the United States for fully five years. If married he must give the full name, including maiden name and age of his wife, number, age and name of his chil dren, etc. He must take oath that be Is neither an anarchist nor a polvga mlst and does not believe In these doctrines. His statements must be vouched for by two reliable witnes ses. If the naturalization clerk of the respective court shtfttld have rea sonable doubts concerning the auth enticity of the Immigration certifi cate of the applicant, he may sub poena witnesses and bold an inquiry in tho matter. Petitions for natural ization may be filed at any time, but only with Buch court! that are courts of records, have a seat and seal and are competent of Jurisdiction la either law or equity. An interesting feature is that the Intending citizen who objects to hla name, and can give good reasons ior such objections, can. at tho time of I his application for naturalization, pe I tit ion the court to allow , him to change his name, and the court is I empowered to grant the request. ! A provision which will have a ten dency to lessen the number of appli cants for naturalization, provides that no alien shall be admitted to citizen ship who cannot speak and write the ! English language. Another radical i Innovation is that all bearings in oa I turallzation cases must take place in open court. It an alien having his nrst papers applies for his final pa ; pers, the clerk of the court before which the application Is made, must i take a complete record, a copy of j which must go to the bureau of lm ! migration. A clerk failing to send ' such copy Is liable to a fine of $25 for each case. Ninety days time must elapse before the final hearing, to give the government time, to be rep resented at the hearing. If that should bo considered necessary. While the cost of becoming an Am erican citizen under the former law, which was in force eighty years, varied from $2 to $2.50, the total cost from now ou will he 5. (f this amount II Is to I) paid when the dec laration of Intention Is made; 2 upon the final hearing and 12 when the final order of naturalization Is l- ; sued. One half o that amount goes I to tho respective county, the other ! half to the bureau of immigration, -it an alient returns to his native coun try In less than five years after he 'has made his application for citizen I ship here, all proceedings taken in J his case shall be considered caucell- e. The penalty for the fraudulent use of a naturalization certificate is ten years Imprisonment and $10,000 fine. A similar penalty can be im posed for counterfeit Ing a certificate. A clerk who di4oheyg the provision of the law may be sentenced to five years Imprisonment and fined 9 1 .00. H. B. Baldwin, a brother of Mrs. W. J.
