Eugene W. Leake, one of the most brilliant of Jersey City’s young lawyers, was last night nominated for Congress by the Democrats of'the Ninth Congress ional District.* Mr. Leake hesitated slight ly when informed before the convention that he had anexcellent chance of secur ing the nomination. It is rumored that nis fiance urged; him to aoeept the nominaion f end a red to him. The Ninth Congress ional District is a Republican stronghold. Mr. Leake’s professional and business friends and the Democratic leaders be lieve h is th man to carry the district for the Democrats especially as the bit ter factional differences exist in the R» publican ranks. The platform rjads as follows:— sj “The Democratic party o e Ninth Congressional District of fSjjjpItate of New Jersey, ia convention assembled, re affirms its faith in the fundamental prin ciples of that party, as expounded by Theseus Jefferson, and which have stood as th* bulwark of liberty in this Repub lic for more than a century. “Many economic doctrines promulgated by the Democratic part}- for years, aud supported by its representatives, have been ignored by the Republican party. “For instance the Democratic Nation al platform of 1896 contained the fol lowing declaration:— “We demand the enlargement of the powers of the Interstate Cosnmarcce Commission and such restriction and guarantees in the control of railroads as will protect the people from robbery and oppression.” "Against thfe policy oonsistendy en foresd and urged by Democratic lepre Oentatives, the Republican party, con ‘ -Ued by corporations, has for the past ten years offered constant opposition, it was not tmtH—the present year that a bill-was introduced in Congress to carry *ut this policy. It immediately encoun tered the hostility of a majority of the Republican- representaivee who. against the protest and votes of the Democratic minority reduced the measure to its pres ent inadequate and unsatisfactory condi tion. We therefore demand th* enact ment of a .more stringent law on this lubiact in conformity with the D«r- ' iratlc doctrine originally promulgate! b. William Jennings Bryan and now sup ported by President Roosevoit. “We demand the enactment of legisla tors that will effectively curb the power •*t :he trust and he commercial corrup tion ce»ultiag therefrom.

McCarthy claimed when he went into the conversa tion that he had 96 votes pledged to him and it was anticipated hat a good light was on. The convention assumed the tumultuous attitude of a miniature na tional one. Two of the Recoil-Pagan delegates—Comptroller Thomas MeEwan and Corporation Attorney Robert Carey were unseated; but Mr. Carey was sub sequently readmitted and made the speech placing the name of Mr. McCar thy in nomination, but as stated above lie was beaten by Mr. Pickett by an eleven majortv vote.

Insurgents Show Willingness to Surrender Rifles to Ameri can Commission. TROUBLE AT GUANTANAMO. Rebels In Vicinity of City Refuse to Lay Down Arms—Actual Fighting of Revolution Small, Says Observer. Taft Denies Reported Criticism of Paima Administration. Havana, Oet. 4,—Such alacrity as is shown by the insurgents in laying down their arms to the commission ap pointed to superintend this termination of the revolution is the greatest sur prise the provisional government has yet encountered in Its smooth working programme. This operation is now well under way ia the neighborhood of Havana, 700 of Guerra’s men, with their horses, having been entrained for Pinar del Hio, while one brigade marched to Guanajay without a sign of disorder. As a concession to the men General Funston aud Major Ladd permitted them to take their arms 'to Pinar del Iiio, where most of the men joined the army. The rifles, however, were first counted by officers of marines under the direction of Major Ladd, and the men will be required to surrender them before leaving the train at Pinar del Rio. Trouble at Guantanamo. It is reported that a body of rebels in the vicinity of Guantanamo have re fused to disarm. The situation in Santiago is still se rious. The revolutionists continue to concentrate around Santiago. They promise to disarm if General Del Cas tillo orders them to do so. Del Cas tillo has not arrived, hut is expected now at any time. According to the testimony of an American named Harvey, formerly a Roosevelt rough rider, who has been with Gie insurgents, the amount of actual fighting during this revolution was really small. Harvey says that most of the fighting he had seen was between gamecocks. This is borne out by the fact that easily 10 per cent of Guerra’s men carry fighting cocks tied to their saddles. Rebels Butcher Cattle. Since the cessation of hostilities ma rauding bands have stolen or destroyed more or less property in Santa Clara 'provincoi JEW*-week- a .band-attacked - the San N-ieolas plantation, owned by a captain of the rural guards, and butchered 200 nead of cattle. The motive for this destruction is said to have been personal spitg. Officials of the Cuban Central rail road estimate that the insurgents dam aged the railroad*to the extent of $190, 000. Governor Taft has received a dis patch that the' threatened disturbance-; in Cienfuegos have bean obviated by the withdrawal of the insurgents from that city. Governor Taft new occupies the of fice in which the affairs of Cuba have been administered successively by the Spanish governors of the island, Gen eral Leonard Wood and President Pal ma. He will take up his residence in the palace in a few days. Colonel E. H. Crowder, judge advo cate, said that the continuance of the status of the Cuban republic without change obviates practically every legal difficulty which might otherwise have been CRUsed by the establishment of a provisional government. Taft Denies Criticism. In an interview Governor Taft de nied a recent dispatch in which he was represented as criticising t!>- Palma government severely and characteriz ing the situation as disgusting and the elections of 1905 as rotten. ' He has scrupulously avoided giving interviews respecting his views of parsons and issues in the Cuban situation and did not use the expressions attributed to him. Dr. Barnet, chief -executive officer of tile Cuban health department, said: “Governor Taft has told us to use any amount of money needed for put ting Cuba into a first class, sanitary condition and for stamping out yellow fever Consequently we are installing sanitary brigades in many Cuban cit ies. » “In Havana now there are three cases of yellow fever, one of which came from Guanabacea. There are no cases elsewhere in the island, and there is no special epidemic threatened, but, precautions are urgently necessa ry-” __ ___ EELL TO TAKE COMMAND.

While in Cuba, whether his stay there be for a long or a short time, General Bell by virtue of his rank will be iu command of the American troops on the island. After announcing that Governor Win throp would be transferred to Cuba from Porto Rico it was stated at the White House that upon further consid eration of the subject the president had decided to adhere to his plan of sending Charles IS. Mngoon to Cuba to relieve Secretary Taft as provisional governor, permitting Governor Win thvop to remain in Porto Rico, where lifi services are needed. It was explained that the president had reached his intention not to send Governor Mu goon to Cuba because of advices then in hand fro® Secretary Taft intimating that tile arrangements made for Governor Wiuthrop assuming the duties of provisional governor had gone too far to be changed convenient ly. A second dispatch from the secre tary, however, pqt the subject in a dif ferent light and indicated that the sec retary was willing that the governor should remain in Porto Rico.

ASK $5,000 FROM POOR MAN Parent* of Missing Youngster Unable to Give Up Sum Demanded by Hi* ‘ Captors—Menacing Letters Received 1 by Mother — Begs Police to Rescue ( Her Child. New York, Oct. 4.—“Unless yon pay ns $0,000 we will cut your boy’s body to pieces and return it to you la pos tions.” This threat contained in aa anony- . ujous letter signed with a cross caus ed Mrs. G. Lebarbe® of 837 .Second avenue to go into vreYent convulsions when aa expressman delivered a pack age at the grocery store of her hus band at that address. “Don't open that package here!" she screamed. “It may be part of my baby!” The woman’s hysterical condition was due to the fact that her child Wil lie, five years old, had been kidnaped on Friday last, and, although diligent search had been made for him and the kidnapers, no trace of them could be found. Ask $5,000 For Boy. On the Uuy that the boy disappeared the anxious mother received a letter informing her that her boy was in the hands of friends, who would return him to his home if $5,000 was given them. The letter was turned over to the police, who began to scour the city for the boy and the man who had kidnaped him. When Mrs. Lebarbera read the let ter she lo9t consciousness, and it was some time before she recovered. She took the letter to the station house and on bended knees implored the po lice to find her boy before his life was taken. Another letter received by the par ents of the missing boy read as fol lows : “Twice we have had the knife at the boy’s throat. We are merciful. Your tears would writhe our hearts. But the knife shall not always be taken away without the red stains ou the blade. If your sou dies it will 1>e the fault of his parents, who were too greedy. They begrudged the little money which would have saved hi a? to them. Think and act.” Child Stealer Seen. The boy, Willie, after kissing his mother ou Friday last, went into the street to play. He stayed in front of his father’s store all morning and shortly before the noon honr was seen in conversation with a tall man of rather swarthy appearance. This man took the boy's haqd and walked him around the corner, after which he pick ed the little fellow up in his arms. Ni one has seen the youngster since. When night came the mother had the neighborhood searched and late that night heard the story of the strange man. Another letter which the parents of the boy received said in part: “Without ceasing your child cries for yon. He is growing thin and weak. We can feed him only a little longer, for we are very poor and cannot work while we have him with us. The knife is sharpened, but we would spare his life if we could. It is not in us to aonamit the crime willingly. What la the money to you?” The Lebarberas are not wealthy, and neighbors declare they would willing ly have given the $5,000 if they pos sessed that sum. The entire neighborhood Is wrought up over the kidnaping and the threats, and mothers in the vicinity are k&ep iag a watchful eye on their own off spring. Yankee Mapjfsmen Win. Creedmoor, N.
