PENROSE MAY BE THE C0M1NQ MAN
Senator Quay Declines to Commit
Himself in the Matter of His Fov
orite Candidate" He Grants Sena
tor Penrose an Intciview Upon His
Hcturn from Florida.
Special to the Scinnton Tribune.
Washington. D. C, Nov. 24. "I am
not for YVanumakor for 1'nlted States
senator." said Senator Quay tonight
upon his arrival from Florida. When
asked whom he would support the sena
tor declined to commit himself.
Senator Quuy Is looking and feeling
well. He had no luck at tarpon fishing,
but shot plenty of duck. Those In the
party were Senator Quay, his brother,
Jerome Quay, superintendent of Mor-
ganza Reform school; his son. Lieuten
ant Quay, State Senators Becker, Vare
and Hardenberg, Magistrate Harrison,
ex-Magistrate Durham and Council
man Charles Seger.
All of the party except 'Senator Quay,
his brother and son, went on to Phila
delphia. The senator will go over In

gress. Mrs. Quay and her daughtor
arrived here today from Beaver.
Senator Penrose arrived In town to
night, and after registering at his ho

rose Is Quay's choice for senator.
W. K. B.
DINNER TO MR. FLOWER.
Honored for His Good Work In the In.
terest of Honest Money Speech
Made by the Ex-Oovernor.
New York, Nov. 24. It was a nota
ble gathering that assembled at the
club house of the Democratic club to
night to honor former Governor Ros
well P.. Flower for the good work he
did personally In the cause of honest
money and national probity.
Among the representatives of diverse
political elements present were: Chair
man Edward Lauterbach, of the Re
publican county committee; William'
ROSWELL P. FLOWER.
Sheehan, former lieutenant governor;
John D. Crimmlns, John I). Warner,
former Governor Walter, of Connecti
cut, and others.
Robert R Roosevelt presided at the
guests table and on his right Gover
nor Flower smiled and looked compla
cent. At either side sat Perry Belmont,
William D. Bynum, of Indiana; Sena
tor John Fox, Governor Walter, Surro
gate Arnold and Isldor Strauss.
Mr. Flower as he arose to respond to
Mr. Roosevelt's speech of welcome, said
as a preface to his speech: "I would
rather be tendered such a banquet as
this than be president." A howl of de
light greeted this. The ex-governor
wus frequently applauded before he
erased talking. Mr. Flower said in
I urn glnd, for one, to acknowledge
frankly, that no two men seemed inclined
to appreciate so keenly the unpurtlsan na
ture of their victory as do the men most
directly Interested, Major McKlnley and
Mr. Hanna. I am proud to bear public
testimony to the line sense of nppreebi
tlon of conditions and results whlen has
been displayed 'by these two men, not
only during- the campaign but since the
election. Their behavior ami utterunei-s
have been In thorough harmony with the
pplrlt of the contest In which thev were
engaged. 8inee the election there has
been none of the usual, partisan boasting,
and none of the usual suggestions for
perpetuating power. It will be a matter
of great congratulation if the note of vie
tory can be maintained at that high
The two measures which will most
prominently engage the attention of con
gress and the new president will be thoa
relating to the t.-.rlft and the currency,
and In these matters I, for one, should like
to see a marked denature from old meth
ods of legislation. It has been the custom
for many years to entrust the framing
of a tariff bill to the committee on ways
and means In the house of representatives,
to which nre appointed not men particu
larly fitted by business experience, but
men who have served many terms In the
house, or who are prominent In the politi
cal councils of the party In power. This
custom has thrown the tariff Into politics
and has made the framing of tariff sch'-d-ules
largely a game of give and take. The
results have been bad not only for the
business Interest of the country but for
the morals of the country. I would like
to see a speaker broad enough, brave
enough and patriotic enoughto cast nshto
this trndltional precedent, and, bearing
in mind particularly the lessons of the last
election, select from the business men of
both parties In the house the members
best qualified In point of character and
experience to frame a revenue bill which
would give satisfaction substantially to all
the people of the country, and which
would give revenue enough for the sup.
port of the government economically ad
ministered. Approaching so difficult a
task In such a spirit would disarm criti
cism at the outset, win popular approval,
remove political prejudice, quiet business
apprehension, and place upon the statute
hooks b measure generally approved, and
In all probability designed to give the
country a prolonged period of prosperity
without the unsettling effects of con.
tlnual meddllnir with the tariff.
I would also like to see a speaker, brave
enough and broad enough, with the sup.
port of his political associates, to adopt
the same patriotic course toward the so
lution of the money question. That while
It may be a more difficult problem, yet,
approached In such a spirit. It could be
settled on a basis which would give re
newed confidence In the soundness of our
currency, niul drive away forever that
most depressing, insidious commercial lo
ut me, the feur of an unsound dollar.
It is easier, my friends, to preach than
to practice, and we may well congratulate
ourselves that having taken part In the
victory we are able now to stand aloof
and criticise those on whom the respon
sibility s of victory have fallen. But I
think we all feel too seriously on this
question to indulge In earplug and criticis
ing. Our feeling is rather to help and sup
port so long as the disposition is manifest
on the part of those entrusted with power,
tol devote their energies loyally and Im
partially to carrying out the people's will.
In assuming that attitude, we are but
continuing the same patriotic attitude
which we assumed in the campaign, and
we are reflecting, as I believe, the wishes
and sentiments of the great majority of
cltlztns. The temper of the tieoule Will
not Justify trilling with grave Interests,
and any attempt to use political power for
Individual or party prclll will be speedily
condemned, as It deserves to be.
If the Republican party proves Itself
unable or incompetent to aiTor.l the relief
which the people demand, the Democratic
party, reconstructed, reimbued with high
purpose, antl appealing to public conil
dence, will be railed upon to take up the
work and carry It to successful termina
tion. Honest und economical government,
no unnecessary governmental powers,
equal ami Just taxation, no special privi
leges, the largest measure of personal lib
erty consistent with law and order, will
continue to be fundamental Democratic
doctrines, needing constant support and
vindication. Let us not be discouraged
therefore over the outlook of our party
If fr a time It seemed to desert the peo
ple's Interest, the desertion was unrea
soning and temporary. It will not be re.
peated. No such blunder will happen
ugaln. When the bitterness which that
election contest has provoked has died
away and people have forgotten political
hostilities in the returning industrial and
commercial prosperity, Democrats will
come together, and fotgettlng the past,
come only to the future, will coalesce
onco more on fundamental Democrats
doctrines, inspired and equipped for long
years more of valient patriotic services
for the welfare of their country.

Jury Hod Been Approached.
London, Nnv. 21. When the trial of

Frederick Knst, a groom, and William
Aylott, a valet, charged by Karl Rus
Bell with criminal libel, was resumed
at the Old Bailey this morning. Jus

dalous attempt had been made to tam

upon apologized, and the Incident wns
closed by the Justice stating that any
alteration on the dates In the plea of
Mr. Hall's clients would have to be
supported by the strongest allldavlts.
Eventually the case wus adjourned

My opinion Is that the fight against

do not know who is the likely candi
date but I am convinced of one thing
and thnt is thnt the friends of Senator

THE MYSTERY OF
' WEYLER'S RETURN
He Was Unable to Find'Maceo, the
SUCCEEDED IN KILLING CATTLE
The Retirement of tho Spanish Gen
eral From, the Field is Regarded
With Delight by Cubans Sym
pathisers in New York Aro Also
Havana. Nov. 24 The report circu
lated by the New York World to the
effect that the men captured on the
American filibustering schooner, Com
petitor, had been re tried by court-martial,
despite a protest filed by Consul
General Lee prior to his ueparture from
Havana, Is absolutely without a word
of truth. Only the preliminary exami
nations of the prisoners on their sec
ond trial, as ordered by the supreme
military and naval tribunal In Madrid,
have as yet occurred, as was reported
at the time by the United Associated
Presses. It is not known when the
trinls will take place.
Every effort hus been made to learn
the true reasons for the return last
night to Havana of Captain General
Weylcr from the province of Plnar Del
Hlo, but nothing definite has trans
pired. All that Is known Is that he
came here on the gunboat Legazpl from
Marcel, accompanied by only one adju
tant. The rest of his statT camn fry
rail from Artemlsa. When questioned
General Weylcr said: "I don't know
where Maceo is. It Is certain I did not
meet him In either the hills or daloB
of Plnar Del Rio. Despite their brav
ado, the rebels never tight but always
llee upon the approach of our troops."
General Weylcr added that the sup
plies of cattle that had been obtained
by the Insurgents are disappearing, the
troops capturi'.ig and destroying all
that they saw. The military combina
tions planned by him had resulted as
he had expected. All these combina
tions were not finished, but there
would be much less to do at the end
of the year. The press comments on
the return of Captain GenernU Weyler,
are guarded, as is natural under the
I strict censorship exerclsea nere. it is ru
mored that he will soon return to the
field. One report has it that the chief
reason for his return to Havana wns
I pressing government business which
i demanded his personal attention. Iluw-
nnthlni, . ,fl 1 W- . I n M rt i , .1 la bnnivn.
and events In the near future are anx
iously awaited. Some dissatisfaction
Is quietly expressed even by loyalists
thut General Weyler, after his long
preparations to inllict a crushing blow
on Maceo should now come back to
the capital without even catching sight
of the main body of the rebels. The
rebels sympathizers are Jubilant, be
lieving that General eWyler's return
signalizes the abandonment of his per
sonal leadership of the campaign.
New York, Nov. 24. The smpathlz
ers with the Cuban cause In this city
were very jubilant today over the news
that Captain General Weyler had re
turned to Havana. Several reasons
are given for the general's action In
withdrawing from the Held, one of them
being that Marquis Ahumnda, who
took charge of affairs In Havana dur
ing the absence of General Weyler, did
not properly conduct the war. The
Cubaus ull agree that Weyler's cam
paign In Plnar Del Rio has been a
failure. Senor Estrada Palma, presi
dent of the Junta In conversation with
a reporter today, said:
"I think General Weyler has dis
graced himself by leaving the field,
for, although he had over three times
tbe number of men at his command
than Maceo has in Plnar Del Rio, he
has not accomplished his avowed pur
pose to crush the revolutionists.
"The Information has come to me,"
he continued, "that the insurgent
forces under General Callxto Garcia,
have besieged Puerto Principe, the
fourth largest city In the Island, which
tiny now practically control, has, I
believe, hnd something to do with his
return, for he Is needed In Havana to
direct the entire movements of the
BUSINESS CALLED HIM.
Madrid. Nov. 24. A dispatch to tho
Imparclal from Havana says that In
an interview General Weyler stated
that he bad returned from the province
of Plnar Del Rio owing to the neces
sity of settling the question of the new
issue made by the Spanish banks and
other matters. When these were set
tled he would be ready to return to the
field. "He added that he did not be
lieve that Maceo had more than 6.000
men and that these were scattered In
remote positions. The object of the re
cent Spanish operations had been the
occupancy of hills and passes. The In
surgents in the provinces of Las Villas
and Havana were easily kept In check.
There were more rebels in Camnguey
than In Las Villas and Havana, but the
Spaniards hnd little to lose there. More
over,' the object of the insurgents In
gathering there might be to distract at
tention from Maceo In Pinar Del Rio.
At any rate he would crush the rebel
lion in the latter province before deal
ing with the Insurgents elsewhere.
Stories Regarding tho Purchase of
Stock by New York Parties Denied.
Philadelphia, Nov. 24. John Lowlier
Welsh, president of the Union Traction
company of Philadelphia, wus seen this
evening In reference to the story pub
lished In New York this morning that
tho Metropolitan Traction p.-ople hnd
obtained control of the stock of the big
Philadelphia corporation. Mr. Vvelsh
"I know that there has been heavy
buying in Union Traction stock lately,
and the storlts like that published In
New York have been In circulation, but
they were put forth for a purpose. The
stories that the New York capitalists
have obtained control of the Union
Traction company's stock are without
foundation. The stock is controlled by
the members of the present board of di
rectors of the company."
Peter A. B. Weidencr. who has been
so long and so largely Identified with
the street railway of Philadelphia, to
day resigned the presidency of the Phil
adelphia Traction company. i ne
Philadelphia Traction Is one of the
three companies forming the system of
the Union Traction company. It wns
stated that Mr. Weldcner's retirement
had no other significance than that
he desired to withdraw from active
work In the company, so that he might
have more leisure. Mr. Weldener re
mains a director of the company.
AN OBJECT LESSON.
Developed bv Debates in the Brazil
Washington, Nov. 24. An instructive
object lesson In government control of
railways has been developed by tlw
debates In the Brazilian congress grow
ing out of the bill to lease the Bra
zilian Central railway to foreign syn
dicate. The Central road, with its
branches, covers live hundred miles of
the best coffee producing districts In
the republic. The road was. built some
yearn ago by the government nt an
expense of $!"iO,000,oeo and earm-d for
a time an income of f 16.000.000 u i
ly, several millions of this bel.i ,r
profit. Of late ycurs eniploym. i.n
the roail has been given as a ivward
for political activity, the partisans of
one party succeeding each other with
the various changes of administration.
In many cases the salaries were large
ly disproportionate to the character of
the service performed, while In nearly
every case, except where experts were
employed, the appolntes were unfit for
their places. The debates In the con
gress which disclosed those facts, also
showed conclusively that the road, in
stead of now being a paying invest
ment, is stendilv losing money at the
rate of two million dollars a year.
Venezuela and Great Britain Will
Doubtless Settle Their Difficulties
in an Amiable Manner.
New York, Nov. 24. The Hon. An
drew D. White, one of the Venezuelan
commissioners, who Is now in this city.
In an interview with a representative
of the United Associated Presses to
day, said that In the light of recent
diplomatic correspondence between this
country and Great Britain he consid
ered peace as permanently established
between the two nations.
"The practicable establishment of the
arbitration," he declared, "has been,
indeed, honorable to the administration,
and seems assured too, as a guarantee
for a neaceful settlement of all dif
ferences, no matter how perplexing,
that nuiv hereafter arise between the
United States and Ensrland."
Touching upon the work of the com
mission. Mr. White said thnt they had
their evidence over the boundary dis
pute in shape, and while no opinion
had been expressed by the commis
sioners or actual decision as to the
merits of the case reached, it will be, he
thinks in such shape that the commis
sion could now report on the whole
matter at any time the president de
sired them to do so. Ho did not think,
however, that the evidence collected or
the report of the commission thereon
would ever be made public. Continu
ing, he said:
"The commission has brought to
gether a large mass of important ma
terial, sifted and classified It, and
brought It Into proper connection with
the matter at Issue. It has prepared,
probably, the best map ever made of
the whole territory between the Ori
noco and Esquebo rivers, and in addi
tion special maps, historical and theo
logical, which will be published with
the documents to the number of twen
ty or thlrtv. All of this material will
be transferred to the arbitration tri
bunal and cannot fail to be of the
greatest use to them, saving them a
vast deal of trouble and great ex
pense, and also enabling them to dis
charge their duty In much less time
than they otherwise would have done.
The work, therefore of our commis
sion has been preliminary and prepar
atory for the work of the arbitration

Fcnrcd, Mr. liryna Says, but the
I'ouerlul Lobbies Compliments
lor the Women of Colorado.
l.Vnver, Col., Nov. 24. There was a
crowd of people at the Union depot
this morning when Mr. Bryan arrived,
a few minutes after 7 o'clock. The
city was dressed In holiday garb In
honor of the visitor, and the enthusi
asm of the people was of the liveliest
kind. Mr. Bryan wns met upon his
arrival by a committee of ten on ar
rangements and as he descended from
the r.teps he wns greeted with cheers.
He bowed his acknowledgements, and
wns escorted to a carriage and driven
to the residence of Hon. C. S. Thomas,
where breakfast was served.
Shortly before 10 o'clock Mr. Bryan
drove from the Thomas residence, nnd
from 10 o'clock until noon he received
the ladles of Denver at the Brown pal
ace hotel. The rotunda was appropri
ately decorated with Hags and palms.
Mrs. Patterson, as president of the
Kgual Suffrage association, presided
and Introduced Mr. Bryan. Mrs. Mary
C. O. Brandford delivered a brief ad
dress and Mr. Bryan in response said:
"It Is gratifying, Indeed, to be per
mitted to address so many on an occa
sion like this. Had I been elected I
would not have been surprised, for I
would have expected large gatherings
of the people of this kind looking for

He then excused his wife's absence
by saying that he could return and
tell her of the kindness shown him by
the Indies here. I had hoped, he con
tinued, "that she might have received
the title of 'first lady of the land' but
even In the shadow of defeat, that is
what I call her, and my friends, that is
what she is."
Then raising his hand aloft, he paid
a beautiful tribute to the intelligence
of woman. "When I see a good cause

that women will soon be lined up In Its
AN OUTBURST OP ORATORY.
The women in Colorado, the speaker
said, were not tho only women who
were Interested In the great questions
of the dav. He had addressed gath
erings of women during tho campaign
and knew that they were showing a
great interest In the question of sil
ver coinage. "Unless you make pol
itics pure," said Mr. Bryan, In an
emphatic outburst of oratory, "politics
will be impure. My old mother told
me when 1 started out In politics:
William, never do anything In poll
tics that you are ashamed of.' I have
tried to follow that advice, my friends.
The great motto of politics should be
the attainment of equality before the
law especial privileges to none. Those
whose political mottoes are the best
will live the best. Success In politics
or In business is a matter of circum
stances. When citizens are in touch
with this government all men will stand
equal before the law. The person ot
large posession is not the only one
who has a risht to ask help of the
government. The poor man with a lit
