"Thunderer" Claims the American

Special Cable to the Globe
LONDON, Nov. 11.—The Times says:
"It is universally felt here that
Roosevelt has a unique opportunity to
utilize the immense influence conferred
upon him by the American people to
initiate a movement for the cessation
of. the far Eastern war. When the
kaiser heard of Roosevelt's triumph he
exclaimed that it presented the first
hope of sucessful mediation, a~nd there
is no doubt that the kaiser, from not
entirely disinterested motives, would
second Roosevelt in an effort to secure
peace. Russia has now been sufficient
ly weakened militarily for the kaiser's
ends, while his avowed friendliness to
ward her in adversity places him in a
most favorable position for future de
"The British government and people
would also welcome a termination of
the war, but the Japanese alliance and
Russian Anglophobia tie its hands.
France would readily assist. There
fore the situation demands only a
strong initiative, as Russia could
scarcely resist the pressure of the civil
ized world, especially as Japan, it is
believed, would display a reasonable
and conciliatory spirit if approached."
Use Their Artillery
MUKDEN, Nov. 11.—There was a
heavy exchange of artillery fire yester
day at the Russian right wing. The
Russian batteries began shelling the
Japanese trenches and the Japanese
batteries responded. During the night
Russian volunteers dislodged a detach
ment of - Japanese infantry from
trertthes in front of Lone Tree Hill.
The Japanese continue to show activ
ity on the left flank without, however,
engaging in any serious movement.
Comfortable dugouts are being built
along the Russian lines and the sol
diers seem to think that they will win
ter where they are. The idea that Field
Marshal Oyama contemplates an at

Tells off His Progress and Fa
vors the Restoration of
the Canteen
WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 11.—
Gen. J. F. Wade, commander of the
Philippine division, in his annual re
port, says:
The Filipino soldier, both scout and
constabulary, has done and is doing good
work, but it is the work of the trained
solQier against the mob. He has been
well armed, drilled and disciplined by
American officers and led by these officers
against the undisciplined, undrilled and
poorly armed outlaws of the provinces,
men of his own race but lacking his ad
vantages and having nothing to gain and
all to lose by fighting. Many persons
have evolved theories for a continental
army to be composed in whole or in part
of natives. In fact, most army officers
and many civilians seem to ke«p bills for
these purposes in stock, fully developed
and ready to be drawn up in the form
of an act of congress. In one respect too
many of these schemes resemble the nu
merous projects for a Filipino republic,
which provide for a dictator and a lieu
tenant general.
The actual value of the Filipino as
a regular soldier, he says, is still an
open question, adding:
His staying power when brought against
a force equal or superior in number, drill
and arms, his loyalty" to those who em
ploy him and many other questions of
vital importance have not been decided.
He has to some extent been a pupil to the
American soldier, but is far from being
a graduate.

President Hill Favor " Revision
//an Taft Propose Reduction ■v
' of Dlngley Rates --^^^
- WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 11.—
• President Roosevelt will \: recommend
■to congress • that / authority be "« ; given
the Philippine commission to revise the
tariff now in force. The matter was
brought up by Secretary Taft and his
recommendation was approved. The
tariff was the work of the y Philippine
commission. It was put i into effect •by
, executive order and ? * afterward % ap
proved by congress. Since it has been
; in effect . many changes^ have become
, necessary * for the development fof the
islands. The act of .] congress approv
ing s he schedules, however, was 'f, so :
4 worded as to preclude future revision
; by the commission. The 7 commission 1
has.' already prepared a scheme fof re
vision which : has ; been made public i for
the purpose of ! securing criticism and
suggestions from the business interests
'of ; the United * States.. In this % plan,
some of > the schedules are raised V and
some lowered. The revision *is planned
with a view more to the development
of the business of ~ the j islands ."than
from a revenue standpoint. V-
Secretary Taft has decided to lay
before congress at the > - approaching
session i"a% T proposal J for the ; reduction of
customs duties on goods entering ' the
United - States c from '.•the'? - Philippines
from the present rate, which •is 75 per
cent iof t the Dingley tariff . rate, to J25 '■
per cent of those rates, the reduction
to apply to sugar and tobacco, while
all other Philippine products are to be
. placed on our free ? list. )> The secre
i tary's -» proposition last ? year was to ■
cut the Dingley duties o n - sugar,- and
tobacco to 50 per cent of - the regular
, rates, but he argues now that in view
of the additional burden placed sby
. congress ion Philippine trade through
the requirement that Philippine goods
• shall be carried in American bottoms
i alone, it i { Is only fair to reduce the
American import duties on Philippine
goods to the point indicated. -^- - \ ,

Easily Re-elected County Attorney
Over Howard Wheeler, but Arm

County Surveyor Irvine
Early this morning « report was received from Mounds View
which, if verified, will elect Hallam by 22 votes over O'Brien. The re
port was based on the memory of one of the judges, but it is given som<»
credence, and a recount will be necessary to decide the result.
There is no doubt of Miesen's elec
tion as sheriff, the official returns open
ed and tabulated yesterday showing
that he is elected by 562 votes, and in
addition it is palpably evident that he
is not accredited with the number of
votes that he received at Mounds View.
He was given but 10 votes there by the
newspaper reports, but is known to
have received many more than this
T. D. O'Brien is apparently elected
judge of the district court over Oscar
Hallam by 101 votes, although it is
likely that this majority will be cut
somewhat by the official returns from
Mounds View, where O'Brien was given
82 votes to 16 for Hallam. It is be
lieved this i« an error, but the change
cannot be sufficient to defeat O'Brien,
although it will possibly reduce his
majority to about 65.
On the face of the returns Armstrong.

by 76 votes, but it is altogether likely

that the official returns from Mounds

and inaccurate that it is, likely that
