Two Great Camps Forming, One Favoring Another Trial at Self-Government For the Cubans, the Other Insisting Upon Annexation by U. S. THE PRESIDENT'S POSITION II THE MMSOON APPOINTHEHT Was No "Backing and Fill ing" as Alleged By Some Correspondents. By E. C. Snyder. Washington. D. C.. Oct. 8.—Two great camps are in process of forma tion over present conditions in Cuba. One cainp, represented by the presi dent and his political advisorB are in favor of giving the Cubans another trial to govern themselves. The other camp, represented by almost as .pow erful a combination is persistent in maintaining that now is the time to take over the island and forever re move the intricate problems of state «raft which must necessarily grow out of the continued position of Cuba as a republic. Throughout all the difficul ties leading up to American interven tion and the declaration of Secretary Taft that intervention was but tem porary pending an agreement amongst the several political factions in Cuba to get together on some common basis President Roosevelt has maintained his position that intervention was only temporary. That under the Piatt amendment the American nation had no other alternative than to intervene pending a permanent peace between contending interests in the island. But on the other hand Senator Elk ins, Senator Beveridge and other lead ing statesmen are openly asserting that the temporary intervention on tho part of the United States will become permanent and that it is the duty of the American government to aid in hoisting the stars and stripes over the island and to keep old glory flying in the breeze. No one doubts here the president's manifest desire to make our interven tion in the affairs of Cuba but a mat ter of a few months and yet private advices from the island would seem to indicate that there is a powerful party in the Gem of the Antilles for annexation, and that party has already begun a propoganda looking to an nexation. In a talk had with a charge de-affaires of a Latin republic, not a Associated Press to Tke Evening Time*. Sacramento, Calif., Oct. 8.—While -Oscar Herold was ging home from a whist party last night, he saw a man standing by a tree near the corner of Tenth and streets.

The man pitched forward on his face, 4,596 TRIALS BY GENERAL IT Annual Report of G. B. Davis, Judge Advocate General of the U. S. A. Associated Press to The Evening Times. Washington, Oct. 8.—During the last fiscal year, according to the annual report of Gen. George E. Davis, judge advocate general of the army, issued today, 4,596 trials by general court martial were held. Fifty of these trials were of commissioned officers, forty-two of whom were convicted and eight acquitted. Fourteen officers wee dismissed by sentence. In four cases the sentences were commuted to loss of rank in two cases resignations "for the good of the service" were accepted in lieu of confirming the sentences, and in one case the sentence was dis approved. About fifty per cent of the enlisted men convicted by general court mar tial received sentences involving dis honorable discharge. The trial by general court martial THE thousand miles away front Cuba, he stated to your correspondent that the results in Cuba would be far-reaching in the administration of affairs of the several South American republics and that intervention on th ^part of the United States in the affairs of Cuba could not help but be advantageous to a better understanding of popular gov ernment than had not intervention taken place in Cuba. Panama occu pies very much the self-same relation to the United States as Cuba. It has, however, this one advantage over Cuba, that there are six thousand Americans employed on the Panama canal and live in the canal zone, which politicians regard as a decided help towards studying the Panamanian re public. While it is true Governor Magoon was sent as a special commis sioner to supervise the election in Panama his report confirms the prop osition that the Panamanian is begin ning to realize the difference between Latin politics and those of the United States and he is striving with all his power to reach a higher standard of government than is usually associated with Latin-American countries. From a thoroughly reliable source your correspondent learned that im mediately after the crisis was reached in Cuba the president had in mind Governor Charles E. Magoon as pro visional governor of the island to suc ceed Secretary Taft whose presence in Washington is greatly needed. In this the president had the warm and earn est support of Secretary Root, who while a steadfast friend of Governor Magoon recognized in the Nebraskan the essential qualities neede.d in bring ing the Cuban people to a more perfect understanding of the American both officially and socially. Governor Ma goon came from Panama with the un derstanding that he was destined to the Philippines as vice governor of those islands. Rumor, however, had preceded the arrival of Governor Ma goon in Washington that he was to be thrown into the Cuban breach there to remain as provisional governor un til another election for president could be had. But when Governor Magoon had his first talk with the president in conjunction with Secre tary Root, the chief executive and his secretary of state agreed that Secre tary Taft had gone too far in his prom ises to make Beekman Winthrop. pres ent governor of Porto Rico, provisional governor of Cuba, and that the pro gram as originally made up for Gov ernor Magoon should go on. During Wednesday, however, there was considerable cable communica tions between the White House and the palace in Havana over successor to Secretary Taft, who after ascer taining what the impressions of the president and Secretary Root were, agreed that Governor Magoon was the right man for the place and that Gov ernor Winthrop, who has made a (Continued on pag« 2.)

Theiss, who was head clerk in the Postal Telegraph company's office in this city.. It is said he had over-in dulged in liquor and it is believed he wandered out of his way. Herold gave himself up to the police and was re leased on $10,000 bail. DISARMAMENT OVER Practically All Cuban Insurg ents Have Had Their Weapons Taken. Associated Preaa Cable to The Evening Time*.

Associated Preaa to The ISvenlnic Time*. Ottawa, Oct. 8.—Much interest at taches to the conference begun here today by the provincial premiers and representatives of the federal govern ment. The conference is holding its sittings in the railway committee room of the senate, where the representa tives of the several provinces were .formally greeted at the opening today by Sir Wilfrid Laurier on behalf of the dominion. While the invitation to the confer ence mentions only rearrangement or the provincial subsidies as a matter for discussion, there is nothing to prevent other subjects from being brought forward. There is considera ble speculation as to what will be in cluded in the list of other questions to be considered. Among those most likely to receive attention is the ques tion of agreeing to making no further reductions in the representation of Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Then there is the question of apportioning the sec tion of the Northwest Territory about Hudson and James bays, between On tario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan so as to give each of these provinces ac cess to salt water. There is also the question of juris diction of the fisheries and the action of Prince Edward Island and Quebec in taxing commercial travelers from other provinces and countries. The preservation of Niagara Falls and the regulation by the Province of On tario of companies incorporated and given authority by the dominion to do business throughout Canada are two other matters which are likely to be discussed. SGRAPNOTSERIOIIS Machette Fight at Guines Did Not Result Fatally For Anyone. Associated Preaa Cable to The Evening Time*. Havana, Oct. 8.—Reports re ceived by the provisional govertjment show that the pacification of Cuba is practically complete, with the excep tion of the province of Santa Clara, where matters are rapidly nearing settlement. The only trouble now know to exsist is at Alquizar, province of Havana, where the liberals and moderates are about equally divided and irritation has been caused by the reinstatement of the liberal mayor. The disquieting condition at Alquizar, however, has been caused by the exu berance of the more reckless of the disbanded insurgents, and it is believed that thirty rural guards there will be able to keep peace. The disturbance at Guines was suppressed last night. The disorderly former insurgents left town and the marines sent there report that the liberals celebration of their victory passed off without any further disorder. None of the men cut with machettes was seriously injured. IMPLEMENT HEX TO MEET. Aaaoelated Preaa to The Evening Timea.

Newfoundlanders Denounce Modus Vivendi Just Sio-ned By Great Britain and the United States as a One-Sided Bargain For Latter Country. MS OF JUNERIGAN FISHERMEH INVOLVED Islanders Threatened To Carry Out Foreign Fishing Act of 1905. Associated Press Cable to The Evening Times. London, Oct. 8.—Following tho lead of tho Newfoundland newspapers whose opinions on the modus vivendi have been cabled here, the evening papers here today denounce the agree ment as a "one sided bargain" between the United States and Great Britain. The latter, however, it is pointed out here, made every effort to secure the colony's consent to an equitab.'e ar rangement. Great Britain was ready a fortnight ago to conclude the agree ment assigned, believing it to be fair est, but waited until the last moment for Newfoundland to accept the set tlement, which was considered neces sary in order to prevent trouble on the fishing grounds. As to the threat of Newfoundland papers that the colony will carry out the provisions of the foreign fishing act of 1905, it is pointed out that the agreement stipulates that ihe act shall not be enforced this season, and it is not believed that the bait act can in terfere with the fishing. When Newfoundland objected to purse seining, the United States pro posed as an alternative to allow Amer ican boats to take on crews within the three mile limit, but again New foundland objected, and Great Britain, finding it imppssible to satisfy the demands of Newfoundland, agreed to the modus vivendi as now signed.
