New Yo'k.— There were rumors in J
I the financial' district here today that .
I Charles D. Norton might be considered J
| as a possible successor to President,
; Paul Morton of the Equitable Lite As-

j lacking, however, and there seemed to

the fact that Mr. Norton was promin-

Washington. Tlio . report that the
Hornet, General ilonilla's revolutionary
gunboat which has been promoting his
cause along the coast of Honduras, lias
bet ti boarded by a force from the
American gunboat Tacoma, was con-
firmed in a wireless dispatch received
by the navy department Sunday from
Commander Cooper of the I'nited
States ship Marietta.
The dispatch merely said it had been
found necessary to place a force on
board in order to detain the Hornet,
and added that details would be le
ported later. The stale department is
anxiously awaiting confirmation in or-
| der to determine its future course.
The attorney general is investigating
| whether the Hornet lias violated the
neutrality of tlie I'jiited States, and
i pending the result the state depart-
ment announced that the vessel would

hostile act against Honduras.
I The action of Commander Davis of
j i he Tacoma in hoarding the Unmet, it
' is assumed here, was based upon an In- j
tention of the revolutionists to strike a
telling blow. The naval officers in j
Ilonduran waters were given consider- ,
! able latitude in carrying out their in-
structions to prevent an assault by tho
The Hornet sailed from New Orleans
ostensibly for Cape Gracilis on tlio
northeastern coast of Ni> tragua. It
lias not been established where the
vessel received her g.ms. After Gen-
eral llonilla captured Ruatan Island, off
the coast of Honduras, he appointed of-
ficials for the government of the island.
Then, il is said, the IIoi::et was
transferred from her owners to the
revolutionists for a consideration of
one dollar and a mortgage on the ves-
sel. The Hornet was immediately
transferred from American to Homiu-
ran registry and raised the Honduran
flag', but the Honduran papeis were
issued by the llonilla appointees. The
validity <if these papers is ono of the
questions that are now being looked
into. Officials here generally regard
them as irregular.

The photographer's lady was very

"Like that, $3 a dozen," said the

Cade Will Have Hard Struggle
Washington. D. C. \V. S. Cade, tho
newly appointed marshal for western
Oklahoma, promises to have a tight
on his hands if he wants to be con-
firmed by the senate. Representative
li. S. McGuire is the shadow that is
plaguing Cade, and, at the Pawnee
man's instance, President Taft Men-
day sent word to the senate not to
lake action in the matter for the
present. Mr. McGuire seems to think
that a compromise can bo entered
into satisfactory to all factions. He
so informed the president Monday.
Hence the president's request of the
senate. Representative Mi rgan, who
has stood by Cade through the fight,
will see the president Tuesday to
talk over the situation.
