Union Labor Leaders to Begin Active
Campaign Against Him.
;o. 111., Sept. 12.—Union labor
politics in Illinois soared yesterday
when the labor leaders digested the
returns from the election in Maine.
The close call for Congressman
Charles E. Littlefield gave the trade
union, forces renewed vigor and they
immediately began to plan the down-
fall of Speaker Joseph G. Cannon in
the Eighteenth Illinois district. A
band of laborites is expected to visit
Dafivllle, the home town of the
Speaker, next week to begin an ag-
gressive campaign against him. Local
labor leaders predicted yesterday that
If the labor forces could be held to-
gether, aa they were in Maine, it
would mean the defeat of the Sage of
"We are out after Speaker Cannon
In earnest," said John J. Fltzpatrlck,
president of the Chicago Federation
"If the Speaker Is not landed by the
force of organized labor, it will be be-
cause our people are not thoroughly
aroused to the situation. We will be
able to make trouble for Cannon in
his district and I for one am ready to
do what I can to promote It. This is
the time for the laboring interests to
make decisive domands, and If they
will follow my advice they will go to
the limit. Cannon has done nothing
for us and has aided our enemies, and
I see no reason why we should spare
him. There will be more union labor
politics this fall than the country
CUBA BUYS A
VESSEL IS ANITA OF PHILADEL-
PHIA AND WILL BE USED AS
A COAST PATROL.
Meeting Held in New York Yesterday,
But Committee Could Not Arrive
at a Decision—Revolutionists
Deny Recruiting In the
New York; Sept. 12.—The most Im-
portant bit of news that the represen-
tatives oC the Cuban government had
to give out yesterday was that the
government had authorized the pur-
chase of a steam yacht Anita of Phil-
adelphia, which is to be used as a
coast patrol. The Anita, according to
the yacht register, is owned by Georgo
B. Wilson. She is 187 feet over all
and registers 232 tons gross.
Senator Carlos Fonts Sterling, who
has been spending several months' va-
cation here, was requested by cable
yesterday to return to Cuba. He Is a
strong supporter of the government
and is probably needed at the propos-
ed extra session of the Cuban Con-
gress. He leaves New York today for
Florida; where he will take ship.
Yesterday the Cuban Consul, mem-
bers of the Cuban Junta, Paul Fuller
of Coudert Brothers, Lorenzo Semple
and Captain Cook held a meeting for
the purpose of arranging plans for
arbitration of the dispute between the
government and the revolutionists,
but no decision was arrived at.
Members pf the junta said that
President Palmas' decree ordering a
suspension of the constitution might
interfere with all plans of settlement
Colonel Aguirre, head of the junta,
declared that stories to jth.e effect that
the Junta was recruiting here was all
fakes. The Junta, ho J said, was do-
ing nothing to violate the laws of nuo-
trality, which he declared would be
observed to the letter.

NELSON AND GANS AGAIN
Ooldfleld Fight Promoter Says Peo-
ple Want to 8ee Finish.
Ooldfleld, Nev., Septi 12.—Tex Rick-
ard, Goldfleld fight promoter, has
changed his mind about the Britt and
Gans fight and says he would not care
to have these two meet at Goldfleld.
He says he would prefer to wait un-
til late in February, or even early
spring, and have Nelson and Gans
come together for another fight.
"The moving pictures will show,"
said Rickard. "that Nelpon was fully
as strong If not stronger than Gans
when the end came. I do not. believe
that the foul was Intentloal. The next
big bout we will have will be a finish
fight. That Is what the people of Gold-
field want and we will get Nelson and
Gana if possible."

DIVERSITY OF OPINION.
Passengers Arriving frofo Havana
Talk of Cuban Insurrection.
New Orleans, La., Sept. 12.—A di-
versity of opinion concerning the Cu-
ban insurrection was obtained today
from a canvass among the passengers
who arrived here on the steamer Ex-
celsior from Havana,v some saying
they Were running away from Cuba,
while others declared their return to
the United States was only in the reg-
ular course of business. F. H. Wil-
kinson of Chicago said: "AH Ameri-
cana in Candalerlo have decamped.

in spme pertinent comments regard-
ing "jthe duty which a great railway
system owes to the public as contrast-
ed With the consideration it should
give to holders of Its securities.
These vl(*vs were given when Mr.
Oould was speaking of a plan recent-
ly announced for exchanging the $25,-
500,000 Wabash debenture B. bonds,
on which the system has been unable
to pay interest, for new securities.
Tho bond holders have bfeen making
demands for payments of Interest, for j
a year, owing to Increased earnings, |
which for tho last few years, have
been devoted to Improving the sys-
"We cannot keep the Wabash rail-
road In proper condition," said Mr.
Gould, "and at the samo time make
any payment on the debentures. Tho
railroad owes a duty to the public ful-
ly as much as It does to Its security
holders, and the latter certainly rec-
ognize this fact as an established
I principle In making their investments,
j We can't let the property run down
J to the detriment of the shipping In-
terests of shippers.
We can't Ignore the demands of the
public for proper transportation fa-
cilities, and It is our duty to provide
them. There Is urgent necessity for
double track from St. Louis to Chica-
go and other points. We can't sell
bonds to do this work, owing to the
debenture mortgage, and the only way
for us to accomplish it under existing
circumstances is to carry on the
building out of surplus earnings.
"So the Wabash railroad cannot
be properly maintained' unless wo
adopt a plan for the exchange of the
debenture bonds as now proposed, un-
der which the bondholders are to get
new 4 per cent, consolidated bonds
and preferred and common stock. I
hope tho plan will go through, as it
Is to the best Interest of the bond-
holders. I am the largest individual
holder of debenture bonds, and intend
to deposit mine In exchange for new
securities. Whether the proposition
will be carried out now rests solely
with the bondholders."
Mr. Gould expressed pleasure at an
arrangement made with the Pittsburg
and I^ike Erie road regarding freight,
terminals, for tho Wabash at Ptlts-
burg, Pa. "The Vanderbllt Interests,"
he said, "have treated us well In this
