Manila, Sept. 12.—In revenge for
the punishment Inflicted upon them
by the regular troops for the killing
of Lieut. Roscoe Treadwell, of the
Philippine scouts, the Pulajanes at-
tacked a detachment of the Twenty-
fourth infantry, colored, on the night
of the tenth and before they could be
driven back they killed two and
wounded eight of the colored soldiers.
Early on the evening of the tenth
the bandits rushed the camp of Tread-
well and succeeded in killing the offi-
cer. The colored troops came to the
rescue and drove the fanatics from
the field, killing and capturing a large
number. The Twenty-fourth then
wen*: into camp near Bara, Leyte, near
the scene of the engagement. The
band returned during the night, boloed
the outposts and rushed the camp.
In the confusion of the darkness the
regulars were badly cut up before
they realized that the Pulajanes were
upon them. The colored troops were
attacked in their tents, the natives
slashing the canvass with boloes and
falling upon the sleeping soldiers.
The men of the Twenty-fourth were
aroused by the shouts of their con-
rades and went into the fight with
their pistols and bayonets and finally
routed the Pulajanes, killing and
wounding many of them. In the dark-
ness a few of the Pulajanes escaped.

Insurrection on the Island Has Reached
Such Proportions that the President
Deemed it Necessary to Take Steps to
Protect American Interests—No Inten-
tion to Intervene at Present.
Washington, Sept. 12—Prosldent
Roosevelt's policy of preparedness for
any emergency in Cuba so far as tho
immediate operation of war vessels is
concerned, was announced at the state
department Wednesday. It includes
the arrival at Havana Wednesday
night of the protected cruiser Denver
and the gunboat Marietta at Cienfu-
gos some time Thursday. The cruiser
Des Moines will remain at Key West
until further orders. In making pub-
lic these facts, acting Secretary of
State Bacon said that there was no
disposition on the part of this gov-
ernment to make a demonstration in
Cuban waters, but the insurrection
had attained such proportions It had
become necessary to take steps for
the protection of American interests
in Cuba. The department believes
j that for the present the Denver will
be sufficient for all needs along the
northern coast of Cuba and the Mari-
etta for the southern coast.
The exehange of messages between J
the state department and Mr. Sleeper,
charge at Havana, and other American I
representatives in Cuba which are I
supposed to have told of conditions
requiring that prompt action be takei, )
i to safeguard Americans and their j
property, will not be discussed by offi- j
J rials of either the state or navy de- j
partments. It is admitted, however, I
that all these messages have been for- j
warded upon their receipt to Presi-1
dent Roosevelt at Oyster Bay, who I
for several weeks has personally dl- i
rected the policy of the United States I
concerning the Cuban outbreak. In '■
this conection there was an Important
incident concerning the orders to the
Denver. After the maneuvers in
Long Island Sound the Denver pro-
ceeded to New London, Conn., for
coal sailing on Saturday for Norfolk,
Va., in the meantime conditions in
Cuba seemed to demand that a war
vessel immediately proceed to Havana
and the Denver was the only one
available. Under orders from Oyster
Bay she was reached at sea by wire-
less cipher dispatch and changing her
course, headed directly for Havana.
Nothing was made public concerning
this order until Wednesday.
The gunboat Marietta was at Monte
Chrtatl, attached to the West Indian
squadron. She has just been ordered
to proceed up the southern coast of
Cuba to Cienfuegos, where she will be
stationed until further orders. The
programme for the Des Moines does
not call for her to proceed to Cuban
waters and It Is said she probably
will be used In preventing filibustering
expeditions from the United States
embarking to Cuba.
In spite of the sudden activity of
this government. It Is declared that
there is no Intention to take any part
in the conflict beyond that demanded
by the critical situation in which
Americans have been placed In the
island. That the president has con-
sidered the ultimate possibility of in-
tervention or at least the use of force
in safeguarding the interests of this
government there can be no doubt.
This is shown by the fact that the
navy department has been called upon
for a statement of the number of ma-
rines that might be available in the
event of trouble. There are between
600 and 700 marines now In the vicin-
ity of the West Indies. They are
scattered through Santo Domingo,
Porto Rico and Culebra islands and
some are on the isthmus of Panama.

over the entire structure. The fur-
naces were in detached buildings and

The Motion Requesting That the Senator
Step Itown Defeated by a Decisive Vote
—The Platform Adopted Indorses the
Administration of President Roosevelt
and the Course of the two Senators.
Dayton, Ohio, Sept. 12.—The repub-
lican convention was called to order
Wednesday by Temporary Chairman
James Holcombe, of Cuyahoga,
county, moved that "It be the sense
of this convention that Senator Dick
be requested to decline to act as the
chairman of the state executive com-
mittee and that 1^ co-operate with the
state central committee in the selec-
tion of a chairman thereof to man-
age the pending state campaign."
Congressman Burton spoke vigorously
in support of the motion.
Cries from the delegates for "For-
aker," brought the senator to the
front of the platform and, by unani-
mous consent, the senator addressed
the convention briefly, declaring that
he "knew of no reason why a man who
was good enough to be chairman for
William McKinley" and who "is ac-
knowledged to be one or the best
chairman ever known," should not be
contiued In that position.
The convention was in turmoil as
he concluded and the chairman had
difficulty in securing order.
Finally, Harry M. Daugherty, asso-
ciated with Burton in the anti-Dick
contest, was recognized. He declared
there was 'nothing personal in poli-
tics with me," and the convention
was again i na roar of disorder. At
last he said;
"I am not here to pluck a feather
from the honor of any man." He de-
clared himself ready to sign any
agreement that he would never be a
candidate for any office. He recog-
nized the superior qualities of the
chairman but he maintained that un-
der existing conditions a change was
Congressman Robert M. Nevln fol-
lowed in a strong "protest against the
humiliation of a man who has served
you so long and so ably as Senator
A vote was taken and the roar of
"No's" was followed by a prompt
declaration that the motion was lost.
However, a demand for the roll call
was made and a roll call was ordered.
The motion was lost, enough nega-
tive votes being cast to defeat it long
before the roll call ended. The vote
as announced was 248 yeas, 574 nays.
Senator Dick, after the announce-
ment of the vote, expressed his thanks
for the call to "Once more lead the
republican party to victory." Every
man had hte preferences and had a
right to them, he said, and then ap-
pealed for the writing of a "platform
on which all republicans could unite,"
and "from this on let all republicans
look alike to us," following with an
urgent plea for united efforts for
"renewed victory and great success."
He closed with an assurance that he
bore ill-will to no man but wanted
to give to every individual the same
rights he claimed for himself. The
senator wa3 applauded heartily.
The sections of the platform regard-
ing the tariff and the president were

We most heartily approve and
endorse Theodore Roosevelt and his
administration of public affairs. True
to the principles of the republican
party as enunciated at Chicago m
1904, he has more than met and ful-
filled our high expectations. His sa-
gacity, patriotism, commanding hon-
esty and courage, his lofty Ideals of
public duty and of private citizen-
ship have won for him a unique place
in the confidence and regard of the
American people. We express our re-
newed confidence In his ability, his
patriotism, his pure and high minded
devotion to the interest of the whole
people. To him belongs the princi-
pal credit for the long list of bene-
ficent laws enacted at the last session
of congress, and we are proud of his
leadership and pledge him our loyal
support in the future as in the past.
To carry out the policies which mark
his administration and to enable him
to complete the mission the American
people entrusted to him two years
ago, it is imperatively necesary that
he be aided by a republican congress.
A hostile house of representatives
would thwart his high alms and em-
barrass the policy to which he is com-

tive work of Senators Foraker and
Dick in legislative accomplishments
