Ullery Furniture Co CUBAN SITUATION. Hostilities Will Be Suspended Until Uncle Sam Looks Into Things. Washington, Sept. 17. Secretary Taft's departure for Cuba has had a beneficent effect in suspending hostil ities. Both parties are preparing for a conference with Secretary Taft and acting Secretary of State Bacon as to the restoration of peace and the permanent suspension of hostilities. Advices- from Havana indicate that an effort is being made both by the Cuban government and the Insurg ents to adjust the situation in order to avert intervention In any form. Preparations by the Navy Depart ment for any emergency in Cuba con tinue, but no additional orders have been issued despatching war ships to Cuba. The Minneapolis and the Newark are under rush orders to pre pare for going to sea. General Funston is enroute from the West to this city and is expected to arrive here the 20th. His orders are to report at the War Department and await instructions from Secreta ry Taft. No Definite Agreement. Havana, Sept. 17. It is not believ ed possible for the Cuban government and the insurgents to come to any definite arrangement in the matter of securing peace before the arrival in Cuba of Secretaries Taft and Ba: con. The most hoped for now is that Secretary Taft will find matters in readiness for him to begin the ad judication. Word has just reached here of the first fighting in Santiago province. Four hundred rebels under Col. Du bois met the rural guardsmen at La- may. The result of the engagement is not known. The insurgent leaders Campos Marquetti and Carillo have withdrawn their forces from Guana majay and agreed to a suspension of hostilities pending peace negotiations. Other insurgent leaders also are agreeing to a suspension of hostili ties. Explosion at Havana. Havana, Sept. 17. A violent explo sion occurred here this morning, wrecking two buildings. Six persons were killed and many wounded. The explosion is thought to have been the work of incendiaries. Some alcohol was stored in one of the buildings damaged, but the force of the explosion causes the belief that a deliberate use of dynamite was made. TROUBLE WITH GERMANY. Russia Must Be More Careful About Protecting German Residents. St. Petersburg, Sept. 17.

Mexico cel ebrated her indepndence day yester day with elaborate fiestas in all the large cities. The most notable fea ture was the nnstinted friendship displayed toward the Americans.

Consul Gen eral Hanna has telegraphed the state department from Monterey, Mexico, stating that the celebration of the Mexican holiday was attended by thousands of Mexicans, Americans and foreigners. It was, as usual, ve ry orderly in Monterey, in spite of the reports previously published in many papers of the United States that Mon terey was the seat of revolution and that foreigners -were being driven from the country. The patriotism and good will of the people were proven by their cordial manner towards the foreigners. The speech of General Reyes was enthusiastically received by thousands. Nothing marred the patriotic purposes of the day. Live Stock Market. Kansas City, Sept. 17. Cattle re ceipts, 22,000. Market steady.

Albert Hanny, Republican nominee for probate clerk and county record er, has declined to run for the of fice for which he has been nominat ed. His "regrets" were tendered the Republican county central commit tee at a meeting this afternoon. Ac tion was deferred until next meeting. In the re-organization of the com mittee, there was a new order of bus iness instituted, or "a shaking of the dry .bones," as a prominent Democrat put it. I. P. Wetmore was chosen chairman, in place of E. A. Cahoon, two ballots being required to reach a decision. J. M. Reid was re-elected secretary, and A. J. Nisbet was elec ted treasurer, unanimously. A fin ance committee was appointed and arrangements made to take a poll of the county. WHO IS LARRAZOLO. A Sketch Compiled From Two Lead ing Republican Papers. The following sketch of the Demo cratic candidate for delegate to con gress is taken in part from his home paper, the Las Vegas Optic, and in part from the Albuquerque Journal: Hon. Octaviano A. Larrazolo, the Democratic nominee for delegate to congress from New Mexico, was born at El Valle, state of Chihuahua, Re public of Mexico, fifty years ago, com ing to the United States when a babe in arms. At the early age of ten years as a protege of the late Archbishop J. B. Salpointe, he went to Tucson, Arizona, and has since that time re sided in this country. He lived under the protection and in the favor of the kindly remembered archbishop for six years, and was sent to St. Michael's College in Santa Fe where he spent two years. With the excep tion of this assistance, Mr. Larrazolo is a self-made man, for at the age of eighteen years he went to El Paso, Texas, in which city his parents then resided, and taught school for two years. He was a diligent student and was after awhile made assistant in the- office of the district clerk of El Paso county, subsequently being elect ed clerk of that county for two sucees sive terms of two years each. Dur ing these years of clerical service, Mr. - Larrazolo applied his spare mo ments to the study of law, for which his courteous bearing, fine oratorical powers and his acumen fully devel oped in later years, well fitted him. In 1887, at the age of 27 years, he was admitted to the El Paso bar, and few men of any nationality ever car ried with them to the law's forum greater natural talents. The people of El Paso county also elected Mr. Larrazolo district attorney and other minor positions of honor and trust were filled by him in the Pass City. In the fall of 1894 he came to Las Vegas, where he has since resided, occupying with his family a hand some residence on the west side. Mr. Larrazolo is not unknown in public life in New Mexico. For some years he has been prominent in le gal circles in Las Vegas, where he has made an enviable record in his profession. He is an able and interest ing speaker and has force and elo quence on the platform. In the cam paign of 1900 Mr. Larraaolo was the Democratic candidate for delegate against Judge Bernard S. Rodey when he was defeated by a majori ty of about 3,700. In that campaign he made a very strong run in San Miguel and others of the northern counties where he took the stump, although majorities were heavy ag ainst him from Bernalillo county south, save in one or two of the De mocratic counties. His campaign, however, was the most aggressive that has been made in New Mexico by the Democrats for the last six years, and his vote was considerably ahead of that polled last year by Mr. Money of Las Vegas, who was the candidate against W. H. Andrews. MR. BRYAN SPEAKS IN NORTH CAROLINA. Raleigh, N. C, Sept. 17. Wm. J. Bry an made the first of a -series of elev- ven speeches scheduled for this state here today. Secretary Shaw, Mr. Bryan said, tried to palm off on this state some second hand clothing that he could not get rid of in Iowa. Shaw, he said was the high priest of the standpatters. Local Mexicans Celebrate. Sunday, September 16, was Indepen dence Day for the Mexican republic, and the local Mexicans celebrated the event with a musical program and dance Saturday night in the public hall in Chihuahua. The dance lasted until six o'clock Sunday morning. J. W. Thomas, W. A. Gary and Herbert Gill left Sunday morning for Amarillo to take charge of the hard ware establishment secured there by a company of Roswell men recently. The families of the two former will follow in two weeks, and Ralph Smith will also go to Amarillo to work in the same store.
