Bcaond deputy commlEsloner of the Pension Office, went out of offlce today as the result of the House Democrats falling to provide salary for the office he1 hus held for the past fifteen years. As a token of the love and esteem In which he Is held by the employes of the Pension Office, hundreds of the clerks shook hands with the deputy commissioner and expressed their sor row at seeing him go. He was pre sented with a handsome bunch of American- Beauty roses, orchids, lilies, and other flowers. In addition to this he was given a valuable suitcase. These gifts were pluced on Captain Kelley's desk early this morning us a pleasant surprise when he came to work. From 9 o'clock until noon his office was crowded with Ills officials and employes, all wishing him a God speed. The Democrats, following out their declaration to economize, provided only for one deputy commissioner after the first of September. Captain Kelley was born In Schenec tady, N. Y., September 28, 1841, and was educated In the county schools there and also at Blerolt (Michigan) College. From Blerolt he went to Illinois and ut the outbreak of the civlt war enlisted In Company A, Thirty-sixth Illinois "Volunteers, serving as a corpora), ser geant, first lieutenant and captain. He distinguished himself at the battle of Missionary Ridge, when as a sergeant he led a charge over me Dreasiwoino of the Confederates.

He became a division chief at the Pension Office In 1889, and In 1897 was madfe second deputy commissioner In which capacity We has been until today. In speaking of the future, Capt. Kel ley said: "I hate to leave my good friends here. It makes me sad to part with them. As to future plans I probably will go Jnto the real estate business in Washington, but before do ing this I will spend a few weeks on my plantation In Elgin, Illinois."

SPEAKER OF HOUSE SAYS REPUBLICANS CANNOT 1 MAINE Declares Democratic Chance of Victory Never Better Since 1892. BAR. HARBOR, Me.. Aug. 3l.-Speak-er Champ Clark left Maine today after a strenuous campaigning tour of two days. Ho declared William T. Haines, the Republican candidate for governor, represented all the Intel eats that have loaded the high price of living on the whole country. Speaker Clark today addressed Massa chusetts Democrats at the big outing at Canoble Lake, Mass. He left Maine confident tho Republicans would lose both the governshlp and the legislature. "The Republican narty promised tariff Jevlston," said the Speaker, "and had the opportunity to make good that pledge. Thev failed when thev had a majority of their own in Congress and a President of their own to sign the bills. They increased the tariff rates and with this lnciease the price of llvlnc increased. "The Republican candidate for sover nor Is allied with those interests that killed our tariff bills In Washington. Ills defeat will be a rebuke to the ad ministration that destioyed these bills. Because of the Republican broken promises on the tariff. Democratic pros pects were never better Blncc 1S92."

ATLANTA, Ga., Aug. 31. Senator A. O. Bacon, of Georgia, today scathingly criticised President Taft for ordering American boldten to Nicaragua. Ho denounced Tcft'M order as "contrary to the Constitution and without any au thority of law." "In my onlnlon the Bending of from 1.000 to 4.000 troops consisting of Infantry marines and armed sailors Into Nlcar-1! t... !,.. Uio.l.lnnt without nuthorllv I fiom Congress 1b not only without tho luw. but absolutely In violation of the luw," said Senator Bacon. I "Of course It Is recognised that under certain circumstances sman Domes oi marlnts may be landed In a foreign country, for Instance, to protect Ameri can consulates, but that U a very dlf- ferent matter from sending an army into a foreign country to take aides be tween two contesting factions within that country. "If 3,000 to 4,000 troopo can be sent why not 30,000 or 40,000 or any greater number? The larger force could be Bent by him with .equal propriety anu jua tlttcatlon into some other country, Mex ico for Instance. Thoro Is-just as much authority for the President to send 60, 000 soldiers into Mexico as to Bend 3,000 men Into Nicaragua. "If such action Is really necessary then It is the duty of tho President to report the matter to Congress and have Congress authorize tho movement, that duty 1b vested in Congress by the Constitution ana not to mo i'rcsiuenu "It is a dangerous power to bo exer cised by any one man and tho Consti tution carefully denied It to the Presi dent and vested It in Congress alone. "In Nicaragua, I have no doubt, tho whole proceedings la in the interest of some American capitalist, who have loaned money to the existing govern ment and who would lose their money should tho government be overthrown. "The Senate has appointed on Inves tigating committee and the whole mat tor will be sifted from top, to bottom." Sergeant Roberts Is Improved Today Eugene E.

Following a conferencu with Senor Martin Rlvero, Cuban minister to Wash intrtnn. and Acting Secretary of State Huntington Wilson, it became known that this country has made a nnai ulti matum to the Island republic. The State Department takes tho posi tion that the campaign of vluperatlon that has becomo general In he Cuban press as -a result of the Maza assault, can only bo quelled by the government making public tho truo facts attending tho settlement of tho Rellly claim of S5&9.000.

A high official of tho department again pointed out today that even in China before tho Christian era, and even among tho savage Indians there was a code of honor which prohibited the de famation of character and vituperation of peaceful envoys. Mr. Gibson Is being cendemntd on all sides In Cuba simply because he performed his duties In col- i..Ailnn it. Annrln'n rlnlm tfint WAS valid and due him for services rendered. Cuban Government Continues to Waver; Writer Again in Jail HAVANA. Aug. 31.

In view of the Tuft tariff vetoes. The textile Interests were confidently counted on for unusual liberality, but In view of the Indictment of u high official of the Ametlcan Woolen Com pany for alleged complicity In plots to plant dynamite In Lawrence and have It "discovered as evidence against the strikers, It Is feared that contributions from the high tariff people will be hard to get and of doubtful utility. Worrying the Republicans. What to do about the growing strength of the now purty Is giving worry to the Republican managers even mor.i than to the Democratic. In New Yoilt and New England, It is especially noted that working people, those of foreign birth, and the mass of smaller business men tend moro and more decidedly to ward tho Progressive parly. Those same elements are even Btronger for the Progresslye cause In tho West. The Taft people expected that Pen rose's story about tho campaign fund of 1901 would greatly strengthen th "regular" cause. It hasn't. Instead, It has produced tho Impression that Roose velt Is the onu man whom tho pcoplb can tru"t. That is tho sentiment ro llected by expressions of tl)u great rnasB of day-by-day people, whose votes chance to count lust as strongly as those of tho men higher up In tbi business world. Everybody who goes to New York leaves with the observation that It Is posslblo to hear plenty of Roosevelt and Wllt-on talk, bat little about Taft.
