With One Fatality and Several
Injuries at St. Louis.
ST. LOUIS, Mo., Oct. 11.—The Iron
Mountain fast mail train which was late
in leaving Union Station today, .lumped
the track while making up lost time at
the city limits, killing one and injuring
ten other people.
The dead man is Engineer John Caspar,
45 years old, of St. Louis.

The accident occurred within a short
distance of where the same train was
similarly wrecked last spring. Behind
the engine were three mail cars. The
engine and two cars plunged from the
track at a sharp curve and went down
an embankment. The third car did not
fall down the embankment.
Engineer Caspar was crushed to death.

Dissatisfaction of American Residents
With Present .Mode of Regulation
Is a Matter for Secretary
Root to Adjudicate.
HAVANA, Oct. 11.—-The provisional
Government will have nothing to do with
the question of the sovereignty of tlie
Isle of Pines or with the separation of
the government of the island from the
rest of the Cuban Republic. The execu-
tive authority of the United States al-
ready has decided that the Isle of Pines
belongs to Cuba and has embodied that
affirmation in a treaty conceding th*>
sovereignty of the island to Cuba, and
this treaty is now pending ratification in
the American Senate. The entire matter
being one for adjudication by the State
Department, the provisional Government,
which is wholly under the War Depart-
ment, will not mix therein.
The mode of government of the Isle of
Pines as part of the Cuban Republic may
be altered or amended, but the desire of
the Americans in the isle of Pines for
territorial or municipal government as
part of the United States can not be
conceded by any act on the part of the
provisional Government of Cuba 4>r by
the War Department.
The president of the American Associa-
tion of the Isle of Pines has interviewed
Governor Taft on this matter, but the
most that is likely to be gained will be
the placing of an American military of-
ficer as temporary Governor of the isl-
and In lieu of the present Cuban Mayor,
with whom the relations of the American
residents have not been pleasant.

| They consider the present conditions of
j affairs opportune for securing a settle-
ment of the matter, which they believe
may hang fire indefinitely in the United
I States Senate.
Pay Is Stopped.
Governor Taft has decided that the pay
of the Cuban Senators and Congressmen
be stopped Oct. 1, when the Palma Ad-
ministration ceased. He will decree the
Congress to be in recess until its status
Mrs. Tafl and Mrs Bacon held a recep-

MEXICO CITY, Oct. 11.—Dissatisfied
with the existing conditions in their
native country, Guatemalan political
refugees have appealed to President
Roosevelt to bring about the annexation

proclamation has been issued by the
revolutionary junta in New Orleans, and
copies of this document are being cir-
cuated in the City of Mexico by the
opponents of President Estrada Cabrera.
The appea is as folows:
"To the American People:
"The Stars and Stripes, the emblem of
civilization, order and progress, is at this
moment proudly waving over the land
of Marti, Maceo and Maximo Gomez.
"The Cubans have started a war where
brother has fought against brother, and
the Government ot' Estrada Palma has
not been able to check the revolution
which lias filled that country with deso-
lation and ruin. The Republic of Cuba
will in the very near future be annexed
to the United States of North America.
That is a proper and necessary step to

same with Guatemala. Over ten thousand

RUSK, Tex., Oct. 11.—Col. Thomas M.
Campbell, Democratic nominee for Gov-
ernor, and Joseph W. Bailey, Democratic
nominee for Senator, arrived here this
morning on a special excursion train
from Tyler and Jacksonville and were
met at the station by a large and en-
thusiastic delegation of citizens, the Luf-
kin band, the reception committee, Mayor
1 j. D. Guinn, and many visitors who were
here for the big affair. Hon. John Henry
Kirby and B. F. Bonner had arrived on
an earlier train from Houston.
Immediately a procession was formed,
led by the Lufkin band, the leading car-
riage in the procession being occupied by
Capt. E. L. Gregg, Mayor L. D. Gulnn,
Colonel Campbell and wife. In the sec-
ond carriage were Charles Emanuel, Jos.
Summers, Senator J. W. Bailey and Tom
Finty Jr. In the third carriage were
Capt. John B. Reagan. John Henry Kir-
by, B. F. Bonner aud James Hayes
Quarles. Following these came citizens
in carriages and on foot. The procession
moved through the city, across the pub-
lic square and out the long road to the
barbecue grounds, a half mile away.
Colonel Campbell made the first ad-
dress. He was introduced by W. M. 1m-
boden, who said he would introduce a
gentleman who needed no introduction to
the people of Cherokee County; that the
people of Cherokee County feel honored
in haviing nim nominated for Governor,
but to the stranger within the gates he
wanted to say his name is a household
word. "The people know him and trust
Knew Him From Birth.
"There are people here who have
known him from the day of his birth;
they knew him as a short, round, chub-
by, red-faced, saucy boy; a stump-toed
boy, with bruised heel, who stands not
only the fitting but the cherished leader
of men. Twice has the Democratic party
< hosen a native son for Governor, and
twice has the Democratic party chosen a
native Cherokeean. 1 would direct Mr.
Campbell to the life and works of his
distinguished predecessor, the dauntless,
courageous, bold, lamented and immortal
James Stephen Hogg."
With a personal tribute, he then pre-
sented Colonel Campbell.
Colonel Campbell said:
"I appreciate the generous introduction
to the people of my old home. You have
honored me today by your presence, and
1 am grateful. There is no reason for
any man to ask why Tom Campbell loves
Cherokee County and the people of Cher-
He referred to his announcement for
office and the encouragement that he re-
ceived from this county, and to the fact
that the splendid gentlemen who opposed
him were able to poll but a few mor«*
than 200 votes in Cherokee County. "They
were new-comers," he added. To this a
voice in the audience replied. "And they
had not been here long, at that."
Endorsed at Polls.
"In that campaign I presented certain
issues, and these issues were indorsed at;
the polls, and at the State convention
were included in the platform. Among
others is that the menace of today, that
will be an Issue in the next campaign,
is that of the trusts, which are grappling
with the people for the government.
Texas will take no backward step. Texas
has pledged herself, and when William
J. Bryan is the next nominee for the
Presidency, Texas will roll up a majority
such as was never before known. We
have all heard of the oil trust, the steel
trust, the lumber trust, and they are
running rampant in this country, and
doing business in Texas in violation of
the law. I say to you that in Texas the
Democratic party is determined to put
the trusts out of business.
"We have laws which will do that, and
if there are defects the Democracy pro-
poses to make the necessary corrections.
1 suggested a method. When it was
said we could not reach them. I said t
did not believe in this liberty-loving coun-
try there could be a power of wealth
that could grow stronger than the peo-
ple of this country. When I am elected
Governor I will recommend to the Legis-
lature a method of reaching them and
their testimony in order to enforce the
laws of the State. T stated on the stump,
and will restate today, I believe we can
either bring the trust magnates to this
State to testify about their business or
drive them from Texas.
Refusal to Testify
Made Grounds for Ouster.
"For a failure to do so, I propose a
statute that will authorize the Attorney
General to issue his subpoena directed to
he served in any city or Stale in this
I'rion. Commanding the presence of the
president of the Standard Oil Company,
the president of the tobacco trust, or ot
any other corporation doing business In
Texas und»>r a permit, to come to Texas
to give his testimony about his busim-ss.
You may say he will not obev it. If he
refuses let that refusal be grounds for
"Now here I am about to make a
speech. Dr. Jamison told me before I left
Palestine that if I attempted to make a
speech, he would knock me off this plat-
form with a rock.
' The Texas Democracy has honored m«
to run out the giafter and I am proud of
tho honor. I love the people of my coun-
ty and I came here to shake hands and
meet old friends, but it is mv purpose to
tefer but briefly lo some of the demands
of the Democratic platform. That one
just referred to—the trusts—will raeeivo
i he attention of the executive and Legis-
lature in good time. There is talk going
on all over Texas about the grafter. The
grafter has permeated our business and
political system from ocean to ocean, and
it is said craft Is in Texas. I sav when
T am inducted into office, backed by a
Democratic Legislature, I propose to or-
der a searching investigation and know
fo.oo to Houston.
