Reports from the disarming commission In various provinces indicate that what trouble was threatened may be avoid ed, although ex-rebels and volunteers In a few towns In Santa Clara prov ince are still disinclined to be the first to disarm, and it is feared the Ameri can soldiers will have to be sent to back up the demands of the disarma ment commission. Havana, Santiago, Pinar del Kio, Matanzas and Puerto Principe provinces are practically clear of rebels and show no signs of trouble. Governor Taft, Assistant Secretary of State iiaeon and General Funston are gratified at the situation and be lieve that the difficulties in Santa Clara province will be overcome in a few days.

Hill, president of the Great Northern rail way, was the principal speaker Satur day night at the banquet at the Audi torium hotel under the auspices of the Commercial association.

Mr. Blcknell represented the Chicago Com mercial association In the relief meas ures at San Francisco after the earth quake. After reviewing the progress made In the northwest in the past 50 years, Mr. Hill said: "The first bus.ness and the highest duty of the noruiwest is to prepare for the burden and heat of the coming day and to postpone the lengthening of the shadows that must surely fall. With in certain limits we may know exactly what Is to happen In this country and the northwest If forces now operative and If tendencies now active nre un checked. These, briefly, are the cer tainties of the next 50 years, bupport •d by facts ascertained beyond pos dblllty of error. By the middle of thla centurr, within the life time of '.botiaauda now living, our population will be more than 200,000,00j. Where are those people to find profitable oc cupation? How are they to obtain the necessities of life? The question la ilways pressing upon great cities like Chicago, where immigration concen trates. But these newcomers can not lie excluded. was never as icarce, wages were never as high as at the present day. We can not stop the Inflow or check the natural In crease. We must determine, however, upon an economy different from the iresent, when our population Is ap proaching three times what It was In 1900. Striking as has n found the ■ontrast between 1850 and 1900, that letween the present and 1950 will re veal more serious features. Practl ally speaking, our public lands are all occupied. Irrigation Will Assist. "The Irrigation of lands by the gen ■ral government will do something, )Ut when all the present plans arc ompleted, they will furnish land for 'ewer than 1,600,000 small farms of 40 icres each, or for a population of (even or eight million people. Our ,ther natural resources have been ex .doited with a lavish hand. Our ex ports, of which we love to boast, con iist mostly of the products of the soil. Our Iron and coal supply will begin to Show signs of exhaustion before 60 ears have passed. The former at the nresent rate of increasing the produc ion, will be greatly reduced. Our for 'sts are rapidly going, our vast supply if mineral oil flows to the ends of the >arth. We ran not continue to sup ply the whole world and recruit our )wn resources by the methods of trade hat now obtain, because the minerals stored In the ground do not recreate 'hemselves. Once used they are gone forever. We shall, with these coming millions to provide for, be thrown back upon the soil, the only resource •>f mankind that it capable of Infinite renewal and that offers life for gen eration after generation. The period if ransacking the national storehouse •a see what can be sent over seas and wld must be changed to an era In which we shall consider the preserva tion and Improvement of what Is, fun damentally, our chief maintenance, or upon the cultivation of the soil and all varied commercial activity, Intria slc or intact. Is mainly built; and upon It depends the future of mankind, and the nature Rnd stability of Its Institu tions. VAST AREA WASTED SEVENTY-FIVE MILES SWEPT BY FIRE IN LOWER CALIFORNIA.

Tillman declared that the time had come when the south must act. and suggested the adoption of a European passport sys tem by which each person must have a certificate of good character before removing from a residence or home, or before being received into a new section, and that any person without such certificates be imprisoned. This, he admitted, would be placing great inconvenience on the whites, who would have to be included In the law because of the Kith amendment, but he declared thnt If the plan or some peaceable one was not adopted Immediately the country surely was rushing toward the brink of an abyss which means a horrible and Uloody race war of extermination. JAP CONTROL IN MANCHURIA. Railroad to Be Exclusively in Hands of Mikado'* Subjects. l)lspatchns from Toklo declare that the bonds of the South Mancburian railroad have been oversubscribed many limes but that there were no Chlncnc applications.
