Kansas City, Nov. 2.—Lecturing at St. George's church here last night, Colonel Brady, one of the four officers sent by the government to investigate the destruction of the battleship Maine in Havana harbor, declared the mine which destroyed the battle ship was placed by Cubans in order to bring war .yith Spain, and the deliv erance of Cuba. Brady said the Maine was anchored over a mine prepared by Cubans, and that it was fired from Morro Castle by Jose Zavaldo, an electrician, who was latter executed by order of Ctsneral Blanco. He further asserted the information had been sent to the president and the secretary of war. Army Officers in Denial. Washington, D.

Fl^C^1^t4M€NTS &N QUES TIONS tiEFORE COMMERCE COMMISSION DEC. 14. Chicago, Nov. 2.—Presentation of evidence in the rate heading before the interstate commerce commission was concluded yesterday afternoon. Arguments on the evidence will be heard by the commission at Washing ton on December 14, and after due de liberation the commission will an nounce what is generally considered will be the most important decision ever emanating from it. The hearing was instituted at the in stance of shippers who rose in protest when western railroads announced that rates on fifty different com modities would be advanced. Op position to this became general and the railroads agreed not to put the new rates into effect until the inter state commerce commission had con ducted a hearing at which the ship pers should be heard as to the fair ness of the. proposed advances. Hear* ings were lield -at Chicago and New York, conducted at first by an ex aminer, but later owing to the para mount importance of the case, Com missioners Clark and Lane assumed the duty. It took the shipipers only a few hours to introduce evidence, but an imposing mass of statistics and testi mony went into the record of the rail roads. The shippers were represented by a number of attorneys who con fined their efforts largely to attacking the railway evidence rather than to In troducing original testimony for them selves. Railway men admitted that the ad vance in rates on the fifty commodities which formed the basis of the hearing was merely an entering wedge, the ultimate purpose being to advance rates along the line. According to the shippers the final effect of this policy would be to place a tax' of $400,000,000 on the consumer. In a general way the argument pre sented by the railrcads was that in creased rates were necessary for the following reasons: 1. Increased- wages to employes. 2. Increased cost of maintenance and operation. 3. Public demand for Increased effi ciency and expansion of. transporta tion facilities. The position taken by the shippers was that the railroads at present are receiving a generous return on' their actual investment, and among other things sought to. show on cross-ex amination that the low rate of earning shown in the statistics presented was due more to over capitalization than to low rates. he kissed his fair maiden a goodby and left for this country.

Hughes FT#!",! L. STIMSON. •L-ivu"^NewTork, Nov. 2.—The complex political situation always evident 4 just before an election in New York state has this year assumed na tional significance of unusual importance. Two candidates represent ing the leading parties, Samson the republican, and Dix the demo cratic, have been nominated, but the personalities ,of the nominees, party lines to an. unusual extent, and traditions generally have been thrown to the winds by the entrance of Colonel Roosevelt and Na tionalism. The democratic machine, headed by Tammany, is running smoothly. An almost united New York city press is opposed to Roosevelt and his candidate. The republican ship of state has been beset by storms since the republican state central committee first met and favored Vice president Sherman for chairman of the conven tion. The determining vote! however, lies with the conservative upstate New Yorker, and here is where Roosevelt is devoting his hardest work and confidently expects a majority vote for Stimsoli. As.the fight draw® to a close confidence prevails in the camps of each candidate, but not until the last vote is reported, especially from the upstate sections, will the d|cisiQttbe given in one o| New York's greatest political fights. mrnxm JOHN A.
