Washington, Nov. 7. The cabinet re
tuscmblcd this morning alter a vacation
of several months. As the president is
preparing to leave tin- city again for
two weeks' absence, ho discussed tiie
various questions that will take promi
nence In Ills annual message to con
gress. Tlie Republican victory of Tuesday
was Identified so clearly as an Indorse
ment of the administration that it if)
impossible to ignore the public senti
ment in favor nf some amendment In
the Sherman anti-trust law. President
Roosevelt, in Ills lirst message to con
press, made earnest recommendation
that the Sherman law be so amended
as to reach the most aggravated evils
of trust organisation. At the same time
lie directed his attorney general to be
gin proceedings against the trusts that
were believed to be violating the Sher
man law.
The president is convinced that the
people demand some new legislation in
regard to the trusts, and he not only
will renew the recommendations In his
message last year, but will emphasize
them and place such recommendation
first in ills message. It is a question of
such vital Importance that he does not
believe congress should delay action
upon the point of finding a safe method
of amending the law within constitu
tional limits.
Knox Has Paith.
Attorney General Knox lias given
close attention to this subject for many
months and he is now convinced that
congress has power to extend the Sher
man act so as to reach the worst evils
of trust organization. In his speech at
Pittsburg on Oct. II. the attorney gen
eral said that legislation by congress
would indirectly affect production, but
that fact could be considered no bar
to such legislation.
'Congress under this power prevents
the importation or transportation of
articles deemed injurious to the general
welfare," he said. "Tims the law sub
jects the movement of explosives and
absolutely excludes impure literature
and diseased cattle, convicts and con
tract, labor and scrutinizes and pre
vents or checks many foreign and In
terstate movements, throughout the ra
the Held of international and na
tional intercourse, in the Interest of all
people, on grounds of commercial hy
gienic or et Ideal policies. Who shall set
limits now In advance of a carefully
framed and judicially tested law to
the competence of enngresss to regulate
commerce in the way suggested, In the
exercise oT the legislative wisdom, and
In the wide discretion couthled to it?
Who shall say that the power of con
gress does not extend so far? I think
it does. 1 am iuite stun no one can
now say that it does not.'"
The attorney general Is convinced
that congress can amend the Sherman
law so as to require publicity and pre
vent the evil of over-capltallzatlon.
He Is convinced also that the law can
be so amended as to reach the great
trusts which, under their present or
ganization, evade the law, and at the
same time Indirectly interfere with In
terstate commerce and seek to mon
opolize trade.
The President Impressed.
The president is very much Im
pressed with the result of Attorney
fieneral Knox's Investigation in regard
to the trusts and the power of con
gress to legislate, and ho will seek to
convince congresss of the importance
of amending the law at the coming ses
sion. Practically all the. legislation
suggested in his former message was
taken caro of at the long session of the
Fifty-seventh congress, The most im
portant legislation, which failed, was
that regarding reciprocity with Tuba.
That will be handled now by the stalo
department In a treaty which has
been framed ami Is in possession of
President I'altna at Havana, Thu
state department expects a complete
agreement upon the treaty with Cuba
before thu assembling of ennuresss, and
the treaty will bo sent to the senate for
ratification. There Is now little doubt
that the treaty will ho rntllled and thu
Cuban question removed from cnntio
versy hi the house,
There remain only the trust question
and the general appropriation bills be
fore coifgress which require Imme
diate attention. The president believes
that congress can give some attention
to the law at the coming session with
out interfering with the work necessary
in me passage of lite appropriation
bills, lie will therefore, make this ques
tion the important feature of his mes
sage. The cabinet members agree with the
president, especially those who have
given much attention to general poll
tlcnl questions and (he trend of senti
ment throughout the. country.

Stato Officials, Including Governor,
Interested in Mysterious Murder
Case at Boston.

linston, Nov. 7. In the developments
of tlie day in the Mason case, which
has puzzled the police of Boston since
Miss Clara A. Morton was struck down
and killed in Waverly last Saturday,
there are several striking details. No
further evidence, however, lias been ad
duced which tends to incriminate in tlie
case Alan (J. Mason, the member of a.
prominent family, who is under arrest
on the charge of murder. In fact, the
police are inclined tonight to tlie belief
that .Mason stood out clearer in tlie
light of an innocent man, because of
the failure of Joseph Nemser, the West
12nd jeweler, to identify Mason as the
man who bad offered for sale Miss
Morton's watch last Saturday night.
An important detail in connection
with the disposal of the watches was
thei establishment tonight that the sig
natures on the checks kept on file by
the jeweler in identification of the per-t-nns
who offered him the articles, were
written by one and the same person.
This confirms the story that tlie two
women were murdered by tlie same
Another late incident was tlie arrest
on suspicion tonight at Watertown or
a young mulatto. He was brought here,
nut Jeweler Nemser failed to identify
him. The man was released.
So serious has the case become that

The question came up when the com

on Count do Castellane, declaring he
had been guilty of irregularities, and
saying that the count had accused his

Count de Castellane replied, classing
the charges as" false. Ho said he had
been accused of buying tlie election and
practicing charity for election purposes.
Nothing of tho kind had ever been
proved, he declared. He closed bis de

Revolutionists Withdraw From L
Victoria Because Tlicu flr .
Without Ammunition.
Guerillas in the Service of tho Gov
eminent Have Captured and
Brought to President Castro Cer
tain Records Belonging to Mem
bers of Mato's Personal Staff.
Contents of Letters Give Evidence
of the Critical Situation, of the
Leaders of the Revolution.
By F.xclmbe Wire from The Associated Prm.
La Victoria, Venezuela, Nov. 7.
News has been tecelved here concern
ing the retreat of the revolutionary
forces. It Is to the effect that on the
night of Nov. 1, the revolutionists
withdrew from their positions nenr La
Victoria and San Mateo because they
were without ammunition. Tlie fact
that tlie rebels lacked cartridges caused
a disagreement between General Matos
and General Rolando, which was fol
lowed by hot words. General Rolando
declared that the shortage of ammuni
tion was the fault of General Matos,
and that If tho success of the revolu
tion was endangered by this condition,
General Ma'tos was alone responsible,
lie said that all was lost and with his
followers, about 3.200 men, be with
drew from the main body of the reb
els lu the direction of Alto. Gracla. It
is reported that General Rolando pro
claimed "El Mocho" Hernandez as the
leader of the revolution. President
Castro since lie discovered that the
revolutionists only retreated because
of their absolute lack of ammunition
has caused them to be pursued day
and night by government soldiers.
The latest report issued by the gov
ernment says that Genlarals Matos,
Mendoza anil Rlera and their-commands
are tleeing in disorder in an
effort to reach thu mountainous dis
tricts. These generals are supposed to
be near Ilarrera, a point twelve miles
from the lake of Valencia.
Important Letters Captured.
Guerillas In the service of the gov
ernment have captured and brought to
President Castro certain records and
documents belonging to members of
General Matos personal staff,, as -well
as the general's personal correspond
ence. The contents of these papers
give evidence of tho critical situation
of the leaders of the revolution. I,t
is dilllcult to understand the apparent
sudden and complete collapse of tlie
revolutionary movement. Rut a. few
days ago the rebels seemed to be upon
the eve of victory, while toiluy the
cause seems absolutely lost.
President Castro having sent his
men In all directions to cut off tlie
retreat of tlie enemy left hero today
for Caracas. The government soldiers
who are following up the rebels scored
their first success this morning by
the capture of General Ramon Lul?.l,
who was making h' 1 way lu thu di
rection of Alia Gracla. with ::ori,noo
rounds of ammunition nnd -l.iMifl 111011 to
reinforce the revolutionists.
From here President Castro goes to
Los Teiiues, which point was aban
doned by the rebels yesterday. From
Los Tuques the president Will go by
rail to Caracas, arriving there Sunday
morning, lie wJll then take his place
at the head of the government. Tele
graphic couiniiiulentloii between La
Victoria and Caracas has been, re
