Will See the Union Pacific
Disposed of
No Agreement Made Beyond the Guar
antee Given by the Reorgani
zation Committee
Associated Press Special Wire.
Washington. Oct. I—Attorney
General McKenoa had another exttndt d
conference today with ex-Governor
Hoadley ln regard to the pending Union
Pacific foreclosure sale.
With reference to the statemc nt cabled
from London last night to the effect
that an English syndicate had forward
ed a bid for the Union Pacific property
in competition w-ith that of the reor
ganization committee, the attorney gen
eral said that although no foreign bid
had yet been received, lt was a fact that
the government had received Inquiiie*
from foreign sources, and he had' r.o
doubt that tne capitalists of this country
and England would see to it that the
property is not sold at a price much be
low its value. The government, he said,
had entered into no agreemen or under- j
standing with the reorganization com
mittee or anyone els* by which they
were to have the road at 145,000,000 or
any other sum. The property, he saij.
would be sold under foreclosure pro
ceedings to the highest bidder and ih<
only connection the government had
with the reorganisation committee was
that the latter guaranteed that if the
government would join, In the foreclos
ure proceedings, the committee would
guaiunicc that a hid of at least i45.000.u0u
would, be received for the government's
equities. Under this pledge, the good
faith of which was secured by a deposit
of $5,000X100. the government joined in
the suit, which resulted in an order by
the court for the public sale of the
property on November Ist.

the Herald from Washington says:
Former Governor Hoadley. counsel for
the Union Pacific reorganization syn
dicate, will discuss the final details of
the foreclosure sale of the road with
Attorney-General McKcnna tomorrow.
It is probable that an arrangement will
be made by which the purchase money
can be paid by the syndicate without
taking much of lt out of actual circula
tion and locking it up ln the Treasury.
Under the terms of sale, the final in
stallment must be paid on January Ist.
IS9B. On the same date, the govern
ment will be called upon to pay about
$30,000,000 Pacific railroads bonds, on
which the roads have forfeited. It will
probably be settled tomorrow that t").- 1
--000.000 of the purchase money shall be
placed in the national bank depositories
of the United States instead of being
paid into the Treasury, and thus remain
in circulation.

NEW YORK, Oct. s.—The first details
Of the internal disorders which have re
sulted in President Igleslas of Costa
Rica declaring himself dictator, were
received toaay from Harrison it. Wil
liams, who until recently was United
States consul at San Jose, Costa Kica,
and who arrived here today on the
steamer Alene from Port Limon.
The agitation against President Igle-
Bias culminated at Santo Domingo on
Sunday, September 12th, In a bloody riot
In which live men, three of them rich
and the others more or less well know n,
were killed and. more than thirty others
wounded. Immediately after this af
fair Iglesias declared himself dictator.
The riot was between, inllutntial parti
sans of President Iglesias and his op
ponents. President Iglesias some time
;ago was announced as a candidate to
succeed himself. The election is to be
held next month and be is at the head of
I what is known as the Civllist party.

the cities, where the business men are
deeply opposed to him and denounce him

cities say that the cost of the road is ex
cessive. On the other hand, Mr. Wil
liams says. President Iglesias is popular
with the country element. He has built
bridges and railroads and has projected
internal improvements that have en
deared him to the agricultural people.
He believes in spending more money in
school houses than on soldiers ar.d hat
not only carried out that policy but has
given Costa Rica a just and able admin
istration. His opponents call themselves
