THE MARIA TERESA
IS REPORTED ADRIFT OFF CAT
ISLAND
MTALLAISSENTTOSEE
TTJG POTOMAC IS ALSO OBDEBED
TO MAKE SEABCH
NAVAL CONSTRUCTOR'S IDEA
For Believing the Cruiser Has Drifted
Ashore and May Yet Be
Saved
Associated Press Special Wire
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. —A message re
ceived at the navy department from Captain
Croninenield, cine loi the bureau oi naviga
tion, who is in New York, called attention
to the report that the Spanish cruiser Maria
Teres* had been sot ii Off tat island. The
captain expressed his belief in the accuracy
ot the report and suggested to the depart
ment that the repair ship \ ulcan, now at
Norfolk, he sent to make search for the
derelict. The department acted at once upon
the suggestion. A telegram was sent to the
commandant of the Norfolk navy yard di
recting huu to place the Vulcan in command
of Captain McCalla, the captain ot the yard,
and send her with all dispatch to look lor
the Teresa.
A simiiar order was cabled to Captain
Converse at Ouantanamo, directing him
to send the wrecking tug Potomac from that
place northward ou the same quest. She
goes iv charge of J. E. Craven, and the de
partment believes that she will De in the
vicinity of Cat island within thirty-six
hours.
The Vulcan was one of the vessels which
was towing the Teresa when she was sup
posed to have foundered and the department
believes that she will reach the scene of the
wreck in about forty-eight hours after leav
ing Norfolk.
Cat island lies about thirty miles south
west of the spot where the Teresa was last
seen and it is raid at the department that if
the vessel did not founder outright within a
very few hours after having been cut adrift,
she would almost certainly have fetched up
on the shoal beach off Cat island, for the
wind and tide set directly on that beach, if
so, the location is much more favorable for
saving the ship than the position occupied
by her off Santiago where the bottom was
covered with rocks and the wreckers worked
at great disadvantage. Captain McCalla
was selected for the task because of his
great energy and ability lor this particular
class of work, and the officers declare that
if any man can bring the Teresa into port he
can.
It is believed by naval constructors that
the Teresa took water aboard almost alto
gether through the decks and not fhrough)
the hull, as would appear from the first ac
counts of the loss of the vessel. The decks
were rude temporary constructions and were
entirely unsuitable for rough weather. The
fact that the reports indicate that the ship
fettled by the head and that water ran into
the coal hunkers and thence into the fire
rooms goes to bear out the constructors'
theory. It also tends to give color to the re
port that the ship may not have foundered.

PEACE COMMISSIONS
Postpone Sittings Till After the
Elections
PARIS, Nov. B.—The Spanish-American
Peace Commissioners have notiticd the Min
ister of Foreign Affairs, M. Del Casse, that
the joint session which was to have taken
place today will not be held, and that they
will notify the Minister w hen they have de
termined upon the date of another meet
ing. Later a semi-official note was issued
announcing that the Peace Commissioners
had informed the French Minister of For
eign A (fairs that their conferences were
suspended.
Inquiry developed the fact that the fail
ure to hold a meeting of the Commissioners
was only due to the Americans asking for
a postponement of the joint session until
tomorrow in order to allow time for the
translation of the reply of the United
States to the latest Spanish propositions
regarding the Philippine Islands, which
wa« received here this morning.
SPAIN'S COMMISSION
[NOT ANXIOUS TO BBEAE OFF
NEGOTIATIONS
Foreign Holders of Spanish Bonds
Take the First Step Toward Col
lecting the Securities
WASHINGTON, Nov. B.—The advices
that have come to hand so far from the com
mission at Paris are said to he rat Iter en
couraging than the reverse, and there is a
disposition here to agree to the statement
rather curiously made by the Spanish cab
inet in that there wi'l be three or four more
meetings of the joint commissions. This is
taken as an indication that the Spaniards
themselves are not looking for a break in
the negotiations, but they rather expect a
peaceful conclusion in a short time.
The foreign bondholders have at last
moved formally to protect their interests in
Cuba and Porto Kico. The initial steps
have been taken through the agency of the
French embassy, which in this case acts no
longer as the representative of the Spanish
government, but for French subjects.
Through the embassy a most formidable
statement has been presented to the state
department, being an account of the various
Spanish bonds owned by French citizens
chargeable against the territories either
seized or set free by the act of the United
States government. The sum total of these
bonds runs up far into the millions. Just
what it is expected shall be done with them
is not clear. The United States govern-
J ment, of course, will not pay them, but it
may be that the I'rench government looks
to it to cause the independent government
of Cuba to assume liability for the redemp
tion of the bonds charged against that island
when that government shall have been duly
installed by the act of the United States
government. It is probable that other
holders of like bonds, German and British
will take similar steps to have their claims
brought through their diplomatic represen
tatives to the attention of the United States
government, and it may even be that the
holders of such bonds in Spain, though
Spanish citizens, will take a like course,
which would present a novel claim upon the
generosity of the United States government.
THEY JARRED HIM
The Kaiser's Trip Was Not Entirely
Pleasant
BEYROUT, Syria, Nov. B—Emperor Wil
liam is much displeased over several jar
ring incidents of his trip to Jerusalem.
The reply of the Vatican to his notifica
tion of rights acquired at Mount Zion is
considered extremely curt, while on all
important occasions the French consul
general attended in order to assert France's
guardianship of holy places. Moreover, it
appears that the sultan practically took
forceful possession of the land presented
to Emperor William, the owner objecting
to selling ecclesiastical property. The au
thorities here tried to clear the harbor of
all shipping yesterday in view of the arrival
of their German majesties, but the steamers
of Messageries Maritimos, the French
steamship company, refused to leave.
The Presidential Trip
PITTSBURG, Nov. SS.-rresident Mc-
Kinley and party reached here on their re
turn trip front Canton at 5:45 oclock on a
special train. The trip to this city was with
out incident other than at several towns
along the route large crowds had gathered
and the president was heartily cheered as
the train swept past. Upon arrival here the
president was met by a representative of
the Associated Press who gave the president
the returns received up to that hour. Mr.
McKinley declined to make any comment
on the news, but expressed satisfaction over
the "Republican weather" generally pre
vailing throughout the east and said it would
fie worth thousands of votes. The train
will reach Washington tomorrow morning.
British Naval Work
NEW YORK, Nov. B.—A dispatch to the
Times from London says:
Undiminished naval activity continues.
Many naval officers have arrived at Daven
port and the superintendent of compasses
for the admiralty has begun his adjustments
there, which is always the last thing under
taken before ships sail.
'1 he Curacoa, a training cruiser, was in
tercepted by the admiralty off the Spanish
coast and brought back to Devonpart.
A sliain attempt to force a passage in the
harbor against the fire of batteries and
newly-mounted quick-firing guns took place
tonight. The Invaders failed.
The Fashoda Question
PARIS, Nov. B.—The chamber of deputies
resumed its sitii„m today with a crowded
attendance in anticipation, of a debate on
the Pashoda question. But those present
were disappointed by M, Brunoi announcing
that he withdrew his interpellation on the
subject,.

the reported uneasiness in the Kiowa
agency, Oklahoma
LOS ANGELES HERALD, WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 9, 1898
A SUSPECTED SUICIDE
MBS. A. J. PAGE OF PASADENA
DROWNED AT SANTA MONICA
WAS TEMPORARILY INSANE
Left Her Husband to Go to Her Honse
but Instead Sought Death in
the Ocean
An old soldier, wandering upon the pleas
ure wharf at Santa Monica at 7:45 o'clock
yesterday morning, iouud a bundle of wo
man's clothing on the south side of the pier
at a point about a hundred feet from the
land. He did not examine the bundle, be
lieving that some woman had probably
changed her clothes for a more appropriate
i costume to go fishing. No one came to claim
| the clothes, however, and he brought the
articles to the attention of a Mr. Luce, who
, keeps a stand for the sale of fishing tackle
|on the wharf.
On examination it was found that the
bundle contained a gray cloth skirt ami Eton
| jacket to match; a low-crowned straw hat,
trimmed with artificial flowers and black os
trich tip; a small silk sunshade, a pair of
black kid gloves, a lady's reticule and a
pocket-book and three handkerchiefs, in one
of which was knotted 85 cents in change
and in another two return electric railroad
| tickets from Santa Monica to Los Angeles
; and a ticket from Los Angeles to Pasadena.
These were on top of the clothing.
The reticule contained a bottle labeled
"Strychnine crys., v-8 ot., Kosegarten &
Sons, Philadelphia." This bottle had not
been opened, the seal over the cork being
j intact. The handbag also contained the
| business card of A. J. Page, wall paper,
Pasadena, which had on the reverse side
the written name "Mrs. A. J. Page."
With these articles were also found two
pairs of gold-bowed spectacles, adapted to an
elderly person, which, with the ether arti
cles, led to the conclusion that the owner
| was a well-to-do middle-aged woman.
! The articles were taken to the town
j marshal's office and an investigation was
l begun. It wji found that a woman dressed
lin similar clothes to those found had been
at the local postoffice late the afternoon be
fore and had attracted attention by her ec
centric behavior. She had purchased some
postal cards, written on one and mailed it
with a Pasadena address. While engaged in
I writing she muttered continually to herself,
i From the description given by the clerk in
[the postoffice she was of middle age, tali
I and slender.
Marshal Barretto, following the clue given
by the address on the business card, tele
phoned to A. J. Page of Pasadena, but found
that Mr. Page had left Pasadena for Los
Angeles early in the morning. The message
followed him. however, and at 3 o'clock he
arrived in Santa Monica, accompanied by his
daughter, Mrs. A. M. Wilcox, and examined
the clothing, etc.. found, which he identified,
as did Mrs. Wilcox, as belonging to his wife,
who had left Pasadena the afternoon be
fore.
According to the story of Mr. Page, his
wife had been in a weak condition mentally
for some time past. On Monday afternoon
at 2 p. m. she left him at his place of busi
ness in Pasadena with the avowed intention
of going home to superintend the prepara
tion of dinner. When he reached home in
the evening he found that Mrs. Page had not
been there and could find no clue to her
whereabouts.
The next morning he went to Los Angeles,
thinking that his wife had gone to the home
of a daughter in this city, but failed to find
trace of her there.
The telephone message from Marshal Rar
retto was received a little after noon, and
the husband and daughter went immediately
to Santa Monica, where the evidence left no
doubt in their minds that Mrs. Pane had, in
a fit of melancholia, drowned herself.
It seems that three weeks aeo Mrs. Page
had wandered away and been found in Santa
Monica, but since that time her condition
improved, with hopes of complete recovery.
From later evidence it is concluded that
the suicide took place Monday evening, as
late strollers on the wharf noticed the cloth
ing at that time, but had not deemed it of
sufficient importance to call the attention
of the police to it.
Mr. Page will remain at Santa Monica to
search for the body of his wife, which will
probably come ashore near Ballona, as tEe
current runs south along Santa Monica bay.
CUBAN BANDITS
Call for Prompt Action by General
Wood
SANTIAGO DE CUBA, Nov. B.—Mata
more, a colonel in the insurgent army and
formerly a bandit, objecting to the hum
drum ways of peace, recently took to the
hills with twenty men and is now carrying
on his old vocation, robbing plantations and
farms of cattle and horses, holding people
up and setting in every way a!» example.
General Wood is determined to suppress
Matamore and a part of the gendarmerie is
now ready, uniformed and drilled, well
mounted and armed, to do the work. Today
twenty men under command of a lieutenant
left for the locality in which Matamore and
his companions are staying, with orders to
bring them all in, dead or alive. The opin
ion here is that if Matamore is not sup
pressed he will soon have between one and
two hundred recruits, hut now that the pur
pose of the authorities is known it is not
expected that many will join him.
A CAPITOL CLEAN-UP
Made Necessary by the Explosion Last
Sunday
WASHINGTON, Nov. B.—The work of
clearing the capitol of the wreck of Sunday's
fire is being carried forward rapidly by a
large force of workmen. The heavy stone
arch under the fine room of the United
States supreme court has been settling stead
ily for the last two days and it was decided
today to tear it out and rebuild this Bection
of masonry. It is a difficult operation, how
ever, as the room above is loaded with the
valuable old records of the supreme court
which may be dumped in an inextricable
contusion if the sustaining arch is removed.
Boat hooks will be used tomorrow to draw
the hies from the room as it is considered
dangerous to enter the room ami the re
building of the arch will then proceed. As
sistant Architect Wood has made an exam
ination confirming his first view that the
main foundations of the capitol are unin
jured.
HAVANA FIREMEN
To Be Set to Work Cleaning the
Streets
HAVANA, Nov. B—Street cleaning in
thin city has been undertaken on new lines
[by the mayor. The principal feature of the
new plan is utilizing the fire department as
| a street cleaning department. The streets
of the city are to be flooded by hose attach
ed to the hydrants at the street corners and
they are then to be cleaned down by the
firemen. This new service was begun today
but it was rendered unnecessary by a heavy
downpour of rain.
Colonel Williams, the chief quartermaster
and steward, the typewriter attached to the
United States commission, are very seriously
ill. The president of the Spanish Red Cross
society has cabled to the local president of
the Red Cross society inviting the society
here to continue in active organization until
the last Spanish soldier has left the island
and then the Red Cross society of Cuba is
to be disbanded and the surplus funds are
to be remitted to Spain.
The so-called Cuban government has ap
pointed commissions to inspect the Cuban
troops and report upon 'the exact number
of men in each army corps, with the view
of drawing up an exact statement upon
which to discuss the problem of paying off
the soldiers.
Sailed for Manila
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. B—The United
States transport Newport, bearing Gen.
Miller and staff, the First battalion. Twen
tieth Kansas regiment, and the Wyoming
light battery, sailed this evening for the
Philippines. This expedition is the last
ordered to the Philippines and camp Mer
riam in this city is now a thing of the past,
the only troops left here being those of the
California department.
The Unlucky Dauntless
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. B.—The Stock
ton steamer Walker today collided with the
steamer Dauntless of the opposition line,
near Renicia. and stove a big hole in the side
of the Dauntless. No one was hurt.
MILES MAKES A REPORT
ON THE CONDUOT OF THE WAR
WITH SPAIN
A Document Which Alger Must Make
Public Though the Action Cause
Him Pain
NEW YORK. Nov. B—A special to the
Herald from Washington says:
Major-Genera] Nelson A. Miles has com
pleted and submitted to the War Depart
ment his report, covering the entire period
of hostilities between the United States
and Spain.
It could not be learned at the War De
partment whether this report in its entirety
will be given out for publication in the near
future or at ail. It is hinted that certain
portions of the report may he withheld. The
sum and subtsance of tlie reasons for with
i holding it, it is asserted, is the fact that the
report is said to deal squarely with matters
that certain officials prefer to keep in the
background.
Friends of General Miles who claim to be
cognizant of the contents of the report say
it 18 exhaustive in dealing with the minutest
details and many things which have not been
clear to the general public, as to the conduct
of the war, are fully and comprehensively ex
plained.
That the report is thorough and exhaust
ive is shown by the fact that it covers nearly
200 sheets of closely typewritten manifold
paper and includes all dispatches sent by
and received by General Miles. It, in fact,
covers all the part taken by the army in the
war and deals in the most minute details
with the period beginning with General
Miles landing in Cuba and until he left the
island of Porto Rico to come home.
The reference to the Santiago campaign
alone takes up many pases. The invasion
and occupation of Porto Rico is given in de
tail. It is also mentioned that General Miles
conferred with Admiral Sampson and asked
the Admiral to protect the landinz of United
States troops on Cuban soil, which was done.
The report also refers to the warning Gen
eral Miles gave to General Shaffer, and in
plain English criticizes General Shatter's
conduct of the campaign in Santiago.
The report only makes brief mention of
the work of the Inspector-General's Depart
ment, which General Miles thinks was satis
factory in so far asi the Inepeetor-Genera!
had power and authority to act. From this
the inference is drawn that the Inspector-
General was curtailed by authority greater
than his in the conduct of his work.
The report practically states that the mud
dled condition of matters relating to the
irmy status is due to the fact that much in
formation that wa= given out was contradict
ed by the Secretary of War.
Contained in the report are true copies of
every telegram that passed between General
Miles and the War Department. None of
them are curtailed or mutilated, and it is
paid if the report is published in full many
of these telegrams and portions of others will
he made public for the first time. These
telegrams, it is further said, will tell truths
that it is alleged have been so far suppressed.
The report makes no reference to the so
called Aleer-Miles controversy, but some of
the statements credited to General Afilesare
reiterated. A friend of General Miles said:
"The Ooneral will not make the report
public. But the Secretary of War will give
it out.
"He will not dare to keep it back. It will
be a bitter pill for Alger, but when it is
known that the report has been submitted
the demand for it will be great."
An Insane Farmer
WICHITA, Kan., Nov. B.—At Alvah,
O. T„ George Lout, a farmer, went crazy

HOW GAGE TOOK IT
SPENT THE DAT AT HIS RANCH
NEAB DOWNEY
Did Not Vote for Either Himself or
Maguire—Thinks That He Ought
to Be the Next Governor
Candidate Henry Gage spent the day at
his ranch near Downey with his family. He
voted at Fruitland polls and was cheered by
the little assembly of neighbors as he
dropped his ballot into the box. He did
not vote for himself, but neither did he vote
for Judge Maguire, for he put no X after the
name of either gubernatorial candidate.
His ticket was, of course, straight Repub
lican. After voting he returned to his farm
and spent the day between his fields and
the telephone at his house.
"I am not at all anxius as to the result of
the election," he said. "1 have made as
good a contest as 1 could and have based
my position on principles that I believe
should win. Hut 1 am perfectly satisfied
to abide by the judgment of the people. 1
believe now, as I have talked through the
campaign, that the victory of the views
held by my opponent would mean putting
the state back ten years from where it
should be in progress and prosperity; in
fact, I believe that it would take many,
many years for it to recover. But of these
things the people are the judge and their
decision will be gracefully and cheerfully
accepted by me, if it is against us.
"1 feel very confident, however, of suc
cess. I think that all the indications point
that way, and if I am correct in this view
I know my supporters will find that I will
be and do all that I have promised to be
and do."
A CALL FROM COLLIS
Mr. Huntington Has Some Business
With McKinley
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8.-Collis P. Hunt
ington was closeted with the President for
an hour yesterday. In response to a re
porter's query, he said:
"1 came here to see the President, and
pay my respects to him. That was all there
was in connection with the visit that I care
to tell about."
Most peonle guessed that he had two
errands with the President, and that one
of them referred to the coming action by the
government on the debt of the Central Pa
cific road, and the other had reference to
Nicaraguan Canal affairs.
Huntington's connection with the new con
cession for the construction of the Nicaragua
Canal is considered a most dangerous thing
about the grant. Huntington talked with
the President about this, too, and this makes
the third explanation which President Mc-
Kinley has heard within a week. The first
came from Warner Miller, the second from
Thomas Hitchcock, and the third from
Huntington. With all this explaining, no
man in America can tell today whether a
scheme is on foot for killing the canal project
altogether, or whether it will assuredly be
built.
A Hermit's Will
CHICAGO, Nov. B.—A remarkable will
is to be presented to -lodge Kohlsaat to
morrow for probate, j i.c will, which was
made by Orlando D. Hadsell, an eccentric
old bachelor, who died recently divided
among 100 little girl waifs every year for
ninety-nine years the interest on $50,000.
Hadsell is reputed to have made his money
on chattel mortgages. Although he seem
ingly spent the last years of his life almost as
a hermit, it is stated a contest over his will
may be made by two women, one of whom
claims to have been Hadsell's bookkeeper
for a number of years. William Hadsell of
California, a brother of the deceased, is in
Chicago awaiting the probating of the will.
Spanish War Relics
WASHINGTON, Nov. B.—Orders were
sent from the navy department today to the
commander of the Leonidas at Norfolk to
bring that vessel to Washington, so that a
great quantity of valuable relics of war,
and particularly of the naval battle of July
3, may be transferred to the national mu
seum here. The Leonidas has a number of
five-inch rifles aboard and all of the ord
nance of the Maria Teresa except the big
eleven-inch turret guns, which could not
be removed without lifting the turrets off
the ship.
An Unlawful Combine
CINCINNATI, Ohio, Nov. B.—The grand
jury of Kenton county, Ky., sitting in Cov
ington, Ky., today returned indictments
against fifty-three of the leading fire in
surance companies of the United States,
Canada and England. The indictments
charge that the companies have formed an
unlawful pool to prevent free competition
among all insurance companies and their
agents doing business in Covington and thus
extort a greater premium than would other
wise have to be paid.
Private Postal Cards
WASHINGTON, Nov. S.-Postmnster-
General Smith has issued an order admitting
private mailing cards, authorized by the act
of May 19, 1898, into the foreign mails at one
cent postage each for Canada and Mexico
and two cents for all other postal union
countries. This permits the sending of any
kind of e;ard in lieu of requiring the usual
postal card, provided the si/c is the same as
official cards.
