Waterloo Daily Courier (Newspaper) - October 3, 1906, Waterloo, Iowa SIXTEENTH YEAR. WATERLOO, SITUATION is MORE SERIOUS Rebels in Vicinity of Guantahamo Refusing to Disarm. Revolutionists Continue to- Con- centrate About Santiago. [By Associated Press.] Santiago, Oct is reported that two thousand rebels in the vicin- ity of puantanamo have refused to disarm. The situation here is still serious. Revolutionists continue to concentrate around Santiago. Quiet About Havana. Havana, Oct. of the rebel forces in the immediate vicin- ity of Havana began today without opposition. Many men were allowed to keep'arms''which they claimed as personal property. No trouble is to "have occurred in any part'of the island. "Disannmncnt Begins Today. Havana, Oct. Die disarmament of .the. rebel army wil! occupy the 'attention of the American military officials in Cuba. It is expected that inside of three days all the rebels shall have dis- persed homes. The chief. clispersement today will be.at Santiago de las under the superintendence of Maj. when of Gen. Guerra's troops will disarm. .Of. these, will be sent by rail to Pimir del Rio, while another will march to their homes, the United States furnishing them with rations. Two hundred marines from Camp Columbia were dispatched westward last night for the purpose of having the men in adjacent towns when the first installments of Gen. Guerra's disbanded meu reach these places to- day. While no disorder is anticipat- ed when the revolutionists reach their homes, the provisional government and the military authorities consid- er the actual military occupation of the Pinar del Rio region quite as es- sential as the occupation of other portions of the island, and regard it best to have an American force there to insure preservation of order. The most probable center of trou- ble is Cienfuegos. The situation there is delicate. There is much grumbling, but no overt act has yet been committed. There are COO ma- rines at Cienfuegos and 200 more are due to arrive today. This will make a force strong enough to quell any disturbance that may. arise. It is the policy of Gov. Taft to show every consideration for the .views of the Cubans consistent with the public interests. All his efforts are bent to the restoring of normal conditions with the least "possible dis- turbances. So far he has boon emi- nently successful in this direction. Havana is quiet, even gay, and busi- ness is going on quite as usual. The government will be entirely civil unless the former insurgents as- sume a belligerent attitude. In that case Gen. Punston and the troops are ready to take over the real control, There is every prospect, however, of a peaceful and speedy'resumption of the-island's normal conditions. The moderates seem to be eclips- ed since their leader retired. Those of the party left in the capital are de- pressed. The liberals, however, have assumed (.lie airs of groat, victors The city is full of generals belonging to (hat parly, each of l.hem at.i.ired in a uniform to suit liis own tii.sl.e.

HUGHES PLANS JCAMPAIGN Will Confine Discussion in New York to State Issues. Emi- nent Speakers. Now York, a result, of the conference between President Roosevelt and Mr. Hughes on the train between hereafldTrenton.it has been definitely decided that, the campaign in New York state shall be conducted strictly on state issues. Help of the leaders of the republican party in other states wil! not be de- clined. On the contrary, it is hoped every one of the Washington men, from Vice President Fairbanks down, will participate in the New York fight. They will be asked, however, in their to confine themselves as near- ly as possible to the issues at. stake in New York this year and to subordinate uhe usual talk on prosperity, tariff, finance, Philippines, and other things. President Roosevelt is a New York man. He has participated in politics in this state personally since his boy- hood, when he used to organize juven- ile processions in behalf of his favor- ite candidate. It is, therefore, deem- ed to be entirely proper to play upon the name of Roosevelt at every meet- His intimate connection with Mr. Hughes is known to a great many peo- ple. Those who are not acquainted with the fact will learn it before long, because it will be iterated and reiter- ated from every country stump and every city corner until election day.

These lights were located on tho coast and adjacent islands between the mouth of the Mississippi river and Mobile. Mr. Hears did not. In- vestigate tho .lighthouse losses be- tween Mobile and Pensiifola. He has not, yet made public an estimate of the money loss involved. TRY A ooimrrcn AD.

The little glH received some Rcratchos, but was not seriously hurt. Tlio litiKKy wni picsent 'boom' will bo followed by a the book continues, "is only a question of time." Numerous instanced of republican tariff changes are quoted, from which the deduction is made that in forty- five years the republicans have chang- ed or revised the tariff law forty-eight times. "But. at, the book stales, "l.ho republicans and their allied CriomlH and providers of fat campaign barrels, thfi protected monopolists secured n measure that has so fostered and fat- tened the corporations that they are quite willing to stand pat, especiulb as they have succeeded in defeating tho reciprocity treaties, to provide for which tho tariff schedules wore pur- posely increased 20 per cent beyond tho rates that the protected monopolists nuined as sufficient to protect them from competition. "Henro the people artv now burdened with this extra rate plus a revenue ar.d a protective all told." JtcviMion is Demanded. The evidence is overwhelming, it is p.sserled, that the present tariff law fostered trusts and combinations, anil a demand in made for n revision )f the-, tariff toward a reduction of Iho duties. By reason of the shelter of l.he tariff it. is declared thai, the trusts and have advanced prices of their iK'oducts and at the same lime sell ihc-aper to foreigners (.linn to our own nrople.

For one oC tho vacancies to ho created, the presi- Ic-nl, will nominate George V. L. Mey- American ambassador to Rus.sia, Init for the other he is not yet ready :i announce a successor. Mr. Roosevelt has sought to prevail on Attorney General Moody to remain in the cabinet, but. the latter, because of business arrangements ho has made, has found it impossible to do so. He also would like to have Secretary Bonaparte take Mr. Moody's place when the latter retires, but the former prefers the position at the head of the navy di'.parhne.nl, with whose work- ings he has'become thoroughly famil- iar. Some suggestion has been made that Secretary Mitralf of the department of commerce and labor take one of the positions to be made vacant in the proposed shifting of cabinet officers, but he also has expressed a preference to remain where he is.

Steiisland lias just been commit- lod to tho penitentiary to serve an Indeterminate sentence. This failure, by which many poor people lost their all and by which many well-to-do and rich people lost many thousands of dollars, Is recall- ed to mind by an 'entry in the court docket yesterday, which directs a dis- tribution of the remaining funds in the hands of the clerk of the district court, S.

It was only a few days ago that Mr. Aukerman appeared at the office of. the clerk of the courts and received the amount, due him, Assignee AVns The reports show that Assignee If. TI.

The creditors may congratulate themselves over the moderation of the charges made both by the assignee and "the1 attorneys. I'j'elds Dealt in Pine Horses. Wm. M. Fields Bro. dealt exten- sively in high-bred horses, and their fine farm near Cedar Falls was a inecca of interest to equine fanciers. No doubt that much of the money for .which they failed was due to opera- tions outside of the bank, and the inventory of property" indicates that there was a large number of horses on band at the time "of the assign- ment.. The schedule by the assignee shows real estate sold tin the value of and personal property to the value of These two items constituted the assets. Much of the liabilities was in the nature of notes given by the Fields. Tho assignee disbursed, on preferred claims, such as labor, interest; cer- tain land payments, etc., up to May 3, 1900, balance of from which was taken the additional assignee's fees of 100, leaving a net sum of 56 per cent of which was to bo dis- tributed .among claims aggregating .Fields in .Cftrnwla. The Fields left the county and aro now engaged in farming operations on a large scale in Saskatchewan, Canada.
