Foi some time Mr.  Greaves     was  employed at thc stoie   of    Messrs.

Jn fact every government  official from President i'alma down,  is anxious to force such intervention rather than yield to any of the  tunas offered by the Liberal party  and those iu arms against thc government. "The Liberal leaders char,  actcnize the conduct of thc government as treason, while Secretavy  Taft considers it a dishonorable  attempt to force the hand of the  "���������United States into intervention.

Acting Secretary of the Interior 'Mcmtalvo declared tonight  that he never would turn tlie army  over to thc Liberals, but all government, ollicials   unite   in   saying    that  * if the rebels in the field or any portion of them * resist American 'cou-  ,trol the Cuban army would' '.o-operate with the United States in every  ���������way possible. The real>fceliii<** atihc  palace is one of relief, in the prospect that the adversaries of rhe government will not win, oven thi ugh  the government loses, '""his fccl'n.^  'is combined with cunning satisfaction that the United States will be  ���������obliged to take over Cuba indefinitely and possibly for ever. '  President Palma has called a special session ot Congress for Fricl.&y  -when he will present tho Vesignat-  ions of himself and Vice President  ���������Mendez, Capot- The Moderates, however, will not attend that session  for n their hurriedly called Nation-  til Moderate Assembly today they  decided not to have anything more  to do with the. Government of Cuba  claiming they had boon unjustly  treated by President Roosevelt's rep  rescntatives. This Is considered by  ' the "/American secretaries, another in-  'dication that the Moderate leaders  sin:.-.e they can ho longer control the  government themselves are determined that the Liberals shall not obtain control.?  At the conclusion of the Moderate Assembly today Vice President  Mendez Capot called on the American      commissioners    and     declared  that he had been instructed by the  Moderate National Assembly to draft  a reply to Secretary Tatt's letter  to i'rebident i'uiiutt in. which jjcucu  terms were suggesU'd. .Alter this  interview rfenor Alcndoz Caput said:  "I have resigned ii rcvocably my position as vice president of the Republic. 1 resigned, because thc resignation ol President Palma was  forced on him by causes detrimental  'to Uie dignity and. decorum ot the  j oflice of the chief executive. The  ' President will convene "Congress on  Friday to consider his resignation  fand my own. Mendez Capot 'said  . further that . the entire body ' of  Moderates in, business houses,.as well  as the entire Liberal National or  Munez party, would'refrain from attending the extraordinary session.  As the Moderates and the National  ists comprise more than two-thirds  of each house there will be no quorum. ' This Will block action and  prove that the strucrure of the'eon  stitiuional govonimont no longer exists. Although intervention appears  to bo certain, both Messrs lalt aud  iiacon assured the Associated press  louiglit that such a course would  not bc taken so long as 'a government remains with which the-,  can treat, but m 1'ace of the pcr-  sonal communication from ''''President  Palma, that he is about to throw  over thc whole matter. Secretary  1'ait has no great expectation thai  tho present govemfnent will endure  for long. * , .  [ Havana, Sept. 25.���������Secretary Taft  and Assistant Secretary, of State  | Bacon, .informed tho Associated Press  'this afternoon that they were thoroughly disgusted with thc petty  methods of the Government leaders  here and the American coirHnissioners  admitted that they had practically  abandoned their efforts' to bring peace  irom tlie turmoil unless by the' use  of force, mr. Taft said: "The, G������v-  eimnent odjcials- instead' of co-operating with us " to save the Republic, have resorted to every kind of  obstruction with the object of continuing-their control of the administration. President Palma and . his  advisors have 1 ejected terms'of peace  which were proposed to them, (though  in ihe form of a compromise with  their opponents. We are still striv--  ing to arrange a settlement and wo  trust the American people will give  us credit for doing everything possible to acconjplish a settlement  without recourse to  force.  '"I c-finnot say that I am hopeful,  for I have never, known, a more dis.  gust ing situation. Investigation con  vinces us that tho elections . wore  thoroughly rotten..

But despite  ���������*  the, opposition,   both aethe and' pas,-  si\e, the movement was growing  with tremendous rapidity1. Jn Franco  thc .Socialist vote.- had more -than  quadrupled between presidential elections, and the membership in the  Chamber of Deputies had increased  at a proportionate rate. In Germany  ,iharo were eighty-one Socialist members in the Reichstag. 111 -JSnglnnd it  was growing, and in the United States |h>. ...crease had been immense.  When a tnhiking man turned Socialist from the force ,of his convictions,  nothing could change him till the end  of his days. Once a Socialist, always a Socialist. The curse, however, of the movement was the satisfied and contented man.. He.refused  to sec that there was something  wrong- in the .exist ing order of things,  or, if he realized the error, .was too  conservative or too slow to make a  move to help right it. ..Only poverty  would lea-jh Socialism to the'greaii  mass of the people and set them won  tiering why it was that in addition  to paying- their wages out of .their  toil they paid huge sums to their  masters. Then they would see the  reason  for conerative government.  lie adjured  the  voters of .the   city  to   stand   by  thc   Socialist  candidate  in  elections  whether  they   wore   Socialists themselves or not, rather, tha 14  \ote for the wage-earner who   stood  upon one or other of thc party tickets.   The man who  was elected upojn  a party    ticket,   -even if he were    a  Labor   man,   was   not infallible, and  would  start  by    making- concessions  to capital.    The - next time, he'. would  compromise      himself,     and     finally  would  be  no more  a laboring- man's  icpresentative than if he had becjii elected by capital.   The Socialist:made  no  such  compromises.   He might   be  a   dreamer   or     anything     else     that  ���������people    chose    to  call   him     and he  waited for the  day  when  the  co-operative community was in  force,  but  now  ho  was  for   tho  wage-earner.

'J'oda* i,-t of  900 men employed, only 92 presented themselves for work'. These were  all non-union men.   '  Thc matter of 'non-union men being  employed', is the causa of the trouble.

DARING   CHAUFFAUR  MAKES BIG   MONEY  From a b'arc living salary of $f>00  per year to figures which compare  .with the salary of thc president of  the United States, Barney - Oldficld  has certainly made a great jump in  financial earnings.  The intrepid chauffeur .admits that  he was making only $5(|/) a year in  1901, savs an exchange. At that  t me he was doing odd jobs and  there weie times when he was short  the necessary cash for meals.  "There were times when I was  nearly starved," said Oldfiold, "and  there weie times when a dime looked as big as a barn to me." This  was in  1901.  Since then Oldfield has become   an  adept at  the auto game.     Getting a  start  with Tom   Cooper and   Heniy  Ford,  Oldficld; year after year,    has  increased   his   earning   capacity.      Ii-  was in   190] that Oldfield was  work-,  mg  for  Cooper  at  mere living    expenses.     Today  Cooper  is    working  for Oldfield,  watching thc chauffeur's  interests in the theatrical line. Bar.  ney Oldficld draws his royalties' from)  the  "Yande-ilxilt    cup race,"     which  proved such a (b-jg success down East  j    For this yeai, and thc season is a  .little  more  than  half  over,   Oldfield  ��������� lias in.id 1* over $36,000.

Tie owns a  big farm near To  iledo and several     houses.    At    thc  I same  time he squanders his   money  ficcly and is a      lavish entertainer.
