Col. Colton said that there was
nothing in the manufactures that
could not be sold in the islands, as the
people there will never engage in the
manufacturing busine-is. He said
that even the straw hats worn by the
iatives are manufactured abroad of
raw material grown in the islands. He
declared that the American manufac
turers who get established right are
-going to make themselves and their
children wealthy, as the progress of
the islands shows them to be waking
. up, while there are thousands of
square miles of the ncnest kind or
country4, only waiting to be tapped by
. American railroads.
The merchants of the islands, he
said, were largely Chinamen who con
ducted fine shops, but the supply
houses were conducted mostly by
English and Germans. The Ameri
cans have not established as many

' for China will take all of the product
of the islands. The sugar planters,
he said are not going to send their
sugar 7,000 miles, with Hong Kong
only two days away.
Col. Colton assured the local manu
facturers that with a good business
man representing them in the islands,
that they would soon have a foothold

London, Oct. 15. Fear is opan.y ex

execution of Francisco Ferrer will

throughout the whole of Europe in
which England will possibly become
involved. London newspapers which

is something more portentious than a

Lisbon. Oct. 15. Owing to the dis

Manuel was to have stopped in Mad

that the conditions in Spain are not

"You can dedicate the Stars and
Stripes to your society in our hall,
but you can't bring the Hungarian
flag int6 the building," is the edict
that has gone forth from the Slavon
ian Sokol to a new organization known
as the Uherski Slovencki iiemesel-
nicki Zabavi Klub or the First Hungarian-Slavonian
Club. The edict has opened up a
big breach in the Slovak colony and
may terminate in a lawsuit.
The Mechanics' Social Club is a
new organization composed of me
chanics who learned trades in the Old
country and like other societies of
foreign born citizens they have ar
ranged to secure two handsome silk
flags, one the flag of the United States
and the other the flag of their native
Now it happens that the Slavonian
Sokol. which recently completed a fine
building and hall in Hallett street,
was organized by young men to help
perpetuate the Slovak race and to
maintain the language which the Hun
garian government is trying to eradi
cate. The -society has contributed
largely to foreign movements to aid
Slovaks and it maintains a library of
Slovak literature as well as a class
for instruction in the native tongue.
The flag that tae Slovak loves is the
red, white and pale blue which is not
allo ed to wave in Hungary, which is
under Magyar domination.
A few days ago the new mechanics'
club rented the Sokol hall for a dance
on October 28, but it leaked out that
there was to be an Austro-Hungar-inn
flag dedication in connection with
the dance and that the flags were first
to be blessed at St. John's Slavon
Last Friday night, at a meeting of
the Sokol. the announcement that the
red. white and green of the Austro
Hunyarian monarchy bearing the coat
of arms of the dual monarchy, was
to be brought into the hall raised a
storm of indignation.
It was unanimously voted that the
new society could bring its American
Hag -into the hall, but that the Hun
garian flag must be kept outside of
the building. Otherwise no dance -will
A prominent Slavonian said last
night, "There are several prominent
members-of the Slavonian Sokol who
are members of this new organiza
tion as well as some of the officers
of the Slavonian Catholic Sokol. They
cannot consistently remain in those
societies and at the same time be
members of this organization which
wants a Magvar flag as its emblem."
As the mechanics' club has paid its
rent for the hall and has a receipt its
members claim that it cannot be kept
out of the hall. The members pt the
Sokol say they will not get into the
hall. A prominent Slavonian lawyer

TAKES OWN LIFE
Daughter of Retired Merchant Preferred
. Work to Luxury.
(Special from United Press.) .
New York. Oct. 13i Much, mystery
surrounds the suicide of Miss Margaret
McCabe, a noted girl athlete and stu
dent who killed herself early today in
the Flatbush avenue station of the
Long .Island Railroad. The girl, strik
ingly beautiful, of magnificent figure
and handsomely gowned, attracted
much attention as she entered the
depot. She paced up and down for a
lime and then entered the wash room.
When she emerged a few moment
later she sank into a chair -and was
dead in a few moments.
In the washroom were found bit-5 of
paper from a letter she had attempted
to destroy. The police pieced the let
ter together. It is believed the reason
for the girl's suicide is contained in
the letter but the police refuse to
divulge its contents.
Miss McCnhe's father is a wea'.thy
retired merchant. Despite the family
wealth the girl declared it her duty to
w-ork and was a stenographer in a
local business office.
At a meeting of over 100 Democrats
in the Second district at Railroad ave
nue and Lafayette street, last night,
a delegate ticket was placed in the
field which is pledged to Edward T.
Buckingham for mayor, Lawrence J.
Gill for City Clerk and John M. Don

ers of the ticket wish it to be under
stood that the ticket is the only one
in the district that is pledged to vote
for E.- T. Buckingham for mayor.

Last evening Rome Demery comM not

statements of Bissonnette and thai
daughter, Demery; said to her, befor
"You stay here for three or - four
