party, the liberals, threaten to
break away from the leadeiship of
Alfredo Zayas. who is president of
the party and has been regarded

Lack of offices under American

treachery and framing up a presi
dential ticket of their own.

Santa Clara province and candi

SIGNOR CARUSO IN A ROMANTIC ROLE AND SOME OF HIS
OTHER POSES.
NEW YORK, Nov. 22.—Signer
Enrico Caruso, tlie Italian tenor
whose voice is valued at about
$1,000 per minute, appeared for
hearing in police court yesterday
on the charge of pinching and
otherwise annoying Mrs. Anna
Graham in the menagerie at Cen
tral pari;. Mrs. Graham was not
present, but Detective Cain, who
made the arrest, took the place of
the prosecuting witness, claiming
that he saw the misdemeanor.
Caruso dented all the charges and
refused to answer in English,
claiming he could not speak the
tongue. This is believed to he v
subterfuge designed to discredit
the allegation that he made ob

From present indications the

will be settled upon without any

was adopted trouble ensued which
led to a walkout and strike In
some of the offices and was only
settled by international arbitra

is a disposition for all interested

without arbitration or other means
that would take a great amount of

Where everything is love.

JEROME TO PRESS CASES
AGAINST INSURANCE BUNCH
NEW YORK. Ncv. 22.—Now that
the smoke of election has cleared
up, District Attorney Jerome Bndi
time to press the criminal cases
against two of the lesser officials
of the big three Insurance com'
parties, who were Indicted at a
special session of the grand jury
six months ago.
First of the yellow dog gang to
come to the bar of justice are Dr.
Walter R. Gillette and Robert A
Giannlss, former vice presidents
of the Mutual Life.
These cases will be tried before
Judge Greenbaum, in the criminal
branch of the supreme court.
it was Judge Greenbaum who
dismissed the charges against Geo.
W. Perkins. Morgan's partner, af
ter his arrest charged with having
misapplied the funds of the New
York Life Insurance Co. Judge
Greenbaum held that there had
been no intent of fraud.
There are six indictments
against Dr. Gillett. Five are for
forgery In the third degree, for
making false entries In the com
pany's books to conceal the diver
sion of funds. The sixth is for
perjury, which, it Is alleged, he
committed when a witness before
the grand jury.
There are two indictments
against Grannies, who, by the way,
is a heavy aristocrat of the Morris
town set and was Richard A. Mc-
Curdy's closest personal friend.
One indictment is for forgery in
the third degree, in making a
false report on the company's
financial condition to the state in
surance department, and the sec
ond is for a misdemeanor, in filing
this re-port. Granniss. it is'alleged,
concealed a profit of $1,044,058.28
made by the Mutual.
The former insurance magnates
have never seen the iron liars of
the Tombs, having been relea&si
on bail immediately.
District Attorney Jerome refuses
to discuss what action he will
take against the heads of the big
three. McClirdy and Hyde are
still enjoying the gay life of the
French capital.
