NO FOiLHAL CEREMONY
GOVERNOR TAFT ASSUMES CON-
TROL IN CUBA IN NAME OF
THE UNITED STATES.
General Funston Will Command the
Army Unless the Force Needed Will
Exceed a Brigade, in Which Event
He Will Be Displaced by an Officer
of Higher Rank—American Commis
sion to Disarm Insurgents.
Havana, Sept. 29.—Governor Taft
proceeded to the palace at noon to
take over the government of Cuba.
The act was not accompanied by any

During the morning Brigadier Gen
eral Funston conferred with Mr. Taft
regarding the location of the camps
for the first division of the American
troops to be landed here. The sites
have not been selected. Funston will
command all the troops in Cuba, but
if they exceed the dimensions o£ a
brigade an officer of higher rank will
be sent here from the United States.
It is practically certain, however, thai
no sucli contingency will arise, as it
is apparent that the maintenance of
the provisional government will not
require a large number of troops.
Consul General Steinhart received
orders early in the day to telegraph to
the rebel commanders throughout the
island informing them of Governor
Taft's proclamation and the establish
ment of the provisional government.
Political Prisoners Released.
General Joseph Miguel Gomez and
other conspiracy prisoners will be re
leased from custody in order that, as
members of a committee representing
the insurgents, they may sign an
agreement with Governor Taft that
the rebels will lay down their arms
A commission headed by General
Funston will be appointed to superin
tend the actual laying down of arms
OP part of the rebels. This com
mission will visit all the rebel camps
throughout the island and will be com
posed of Americans only in order to
avoid creating any bad feeling or com
plications. The commission also will
disarm the volunteer forces of the
government, leaving the Cuban forces
as they existed prior to the rebellion.
The commission will be accompanied
by a disbursing officer, who will pay
the expenses of the return home of the
rebels and thus avoid dissatisfaction.
Jose Miguel Gomez and others, rep
resenting the insurgent forces in the
field, have written to Governor Taft
agreeing to lay down their arms at
IN MODERATE TERMS
TAFT'S PROCLAMATION ON AS
SUMING CONTROL OF CUBAN
Havana, Sept. 29.—An American
provisional government assumed pos
session of Cuba when War Secretary
Taft's proclamation declaring himself
provisional governor of the island was
formally issued. The proclamation
was published in the Official Gazette
and thousands of printed copies of the
document were distributed in Havana
The terms of the proclamation
caused general satisfaction, especially
on account of the moderate terms in
which it is phrased. The statement is
plainly made that the provisional gov
ernment of Cuba is undertaken only
on account of the necessities of the
situation and the proclamation prom
ises that the provisional government
will be maintained purely for the pur
pose of restoring peace, order and pub
lic confidence until a permanent gov
ernment is established. No one ap
pears inclined to doubt the good inten
tions of President Roosevelt and his
representatives and there is no appre
hension of any serious trouble or re
sistance to the provisional government
in any part of Cuba.

OVER ONE HUNDRED
LOSS OF LIFE DUE TO RECENT
SEVERE HURRICANE ALONG
THE GULF STATES.
Number of Alabama Towns Are Wiped
Off the Map, No Houses Being Left
Standing to Shelter the Inhabitants.
Twenty-five Deaths and Immense
Damage to Property Reported From
Birmingham, Ala., Sept. 29.—Ad
vices received from Mobile indicate
that earlier accounts of the great
storm and the havoc wrought were
not exaggerated. The complete death
list has not been made up because
many small towns along the coast
have not been heard from, but from
what is known It is believed that it
will range close to 100. Only four
houses are left standing at Alabama
Port, while Coden, another coast re
sort. has been almost wiped out. Train
master Bowon of the Bay Shore rail
road, who has reached Mobile from a
trip along that line, said that if the
missing persons did not turn up the
number of deaths along the Bay
Shore road alone would reach fifty.
He said that fifteen dead bodies had
been recovered. Thomas McDonald,
.who came in f: Coden, said that
that place was I direct path of
the storm and was almost completely
destroyed. He said that help was
needed by the people along the shore
and a special train with provisions
has started from Mobile.
The worst suffering and desolation
is said to be at Alabama Port, where
many persons lost all they possessed.
Every House in Town Wrecked.
Navy Cove, near Fort Morgan, was
wiped out by the storm. Pilot Frank
Midgett, who has come in from that
place, says that every house in Navy
Cove was wrecked. Seven persons are
known to be dead at that place. Ad
vices from along the eastern shore of
Mobile bay are that the entire shore
has been wrecked. The wharves at
Fairhope, Battle Point, Clear, Marlow
and other places were destroyed. Con
ductor David Rice of the Mobile and
Bay Shore railroad reports that a
large number of dead bodies had float
ed ashore from the direction of Dau
phin island, which leads to the belief
that the settlement on that island has
been swept away. One boat from
Dauphin containing thirteen members
of a family is reported lost.
Reports from along the line of the
Louisville and Nashville railroad show
great destruction. At Bayou Sara
Bridge the driftwood was piled so high
that it formed a walkaway 1,000 feet
long. At Magazine Point a houseboat,
two fishing boats and two other craft
were piled up in one wreck and a
three-masted schooner was resting
easily across the railroad tracks.
Hurricane Caused Heavy Loss of Life
Pensacola, Fla., Sept. 29.—The vast
ness of the destruction wrought by
the hurricane here is now being
realized. Twenty-five persons are
known to be drowned.
Fort Perkins, one of the modern
forts of the country, has been badly
damaged. The Fifteenth battery of
artillery stationed there deserted the
barracks and post with their families
and sought the batteries, climbing to
the highest point and lashing them
selves to the guns and projecting
Fort McRae, on the point opposite
Fort Perkins, has been wiped out al
The United States naval station,
nine miles from the city, has been
greatly damaged, lives lost and naval
vessels sunk. The Gloucester is in
shore 200 yards, the Wasp stranded,
the Isle de Luzon a complete wreck,
as well as the tug Accomac, and a
number of small launches and tug
WIPED OFF THE MAP.
Three Alabama Towns Completely
Meridian, Miss., Sept. 29.—Informa
tion from Mobile by train confirms the
report that Coden, Alabama Port and
Bayou la Batre have been wiped off
the map and that but one house, the
Julius home, is left standing at Coden.
Among the dead are some of the most
prominent people of the coast, includ
ing the wife and youngest daughter of
State Senator Mcjf&e of Washington
county, Major D. J. Stevens, Olive
Werneth, wife and youngest daughter
and H. G. Turner, a leading lumberman.
The entire shore below Mobile Is
reported completely devastated. Five
bodies have been recovered and thirty
more were reported as known to have
peri3hed. Many bodies of negroes are
included in this report and the sur
vivors of the race are terror stricken

ing over the Wisconsin Central to Ed

GINS SERVING HIS SEN
TENCE IN JOLIET.
Chicago, Sept. 27.—Paul O. Stens
land, to whose self-confessed embezzle
ment of $400,000 was due chiefly the

nate sentence in the penitentiary with

cago Wednesday from the East and
before another three hours had elapsed

at Joliet. Stensland pleaded guilty
on two indictments, one charging em
bezzlement and the other charging
violation of the state banking laws. A
fine of $120 was imposed on the latter
charge, which was based upon the ac
ceptance of $60 in deposits after the
bank was insolvent. The sentences,
which will operate concurrently, are
from one to five and one to ten years,
making the longest term the prisoner
will be compelled to serve not more
than ten years.
