Spanish Minister's
Senor Don Emilio de OJeda, the Spanish
minister here, who represented his govern¬
ment at Morocco for several years, and who
is personally acquainted with Mr. Ion Perdlcaris, the American held for ransom by
Rasouli, has made the following statement
regarding the situation at Tangier:
"Spain does not entertain the slightest
fear that the United States seeks to seize
a port In Morocco. I know that recent re¬
ports coupled the sailing of a Spanish fleet
for Tangier with the statement that the
American desire for a port on the west
coast of Morocco caused uneasiness. Spain
naturally is opposed to any power taking a
stronger position than herself In Morocco,
which is Just across the Strait of Gibraltar,
and where, wlthlhe exception of the Moors,
nearly all the people and business interests
are Spanish. We regard Morocco much as
you do the West Indies or Central America.
You are opposed to any powerful nation
taking a strong position close to
ders. The Spanish fleet has goneyour
to Mo¬
rocco merely to protect our interests from
harm they would otherwise sufTer In the
event of an outburst of fanaticism or revo¬
"I fear for Mr. Perdlcaris, for he is old
and feeble, and confinement in a hut in the
mountains, where the climate Is exceedingly
warm, will tell upon him. The situation Is
a delicate one. I think the
only way to ob¬
tain the release of the captives
Is to comply
with the demands of the

Regarded Here as a Jest.
The rumor which is agitating certain Blu-
ropean newspapers to the effect that the
United States government Intends to per¬

to the settlement of the

contemplated by
this government to seize, even
any Moroccan port and custom

connection with the Perdlcaris case. Nat¬
urally at this stage the officials do not
care to bluster and threaten, but th^y are
prevented from publishing the quiet and
sober project Which they have formed
the treatment of this subject until it has
diflnitely ascertained just what the Sultan
of Morocco intends to do. Unofficially the
State Department learned that the sultan

The Veteran Firemen's Association met
last evening at Its hall In the old Union
Engine Mouse, corner of lltth and H streets.
,' Mr. James II. Richards presided, with Mr.

The will of James N. Fowler, dated December 21. 1!N)8. has also been filed with

terson was returned to the Tombs prison.
J. Morgan Smith, brother-in-law to Mis.
Patterson, appeared at the district attor¬
ney's office late this afternoon, accom¬
panied by two detectives, and was closeted
with Assistant District Attorney Garvan
for half an hour. He was Questioned re¬
garding the revolver with which Young
was shot, but refused to answer, saying
that for him to answer might tend to In¬
criminate or degrade him or to connoct
him with the case.
Attorney 1'nger, for Mrs. Patterson, re¬
ferring to the affidavit, said that they were
confronted by a paper which purported to
be a return, but was in such shape that
he doubted that the district attorney's of¬
fice was responsible for it. He then de¬
murred formally to the return.

"This loose paper Is for a dilatory pur¬

into the law as to coroner's Inquests. and
said that a coroner had no power to Im¬

the Inquest, unless the person was not in
custody. "In order to enable the laid
to act there must be Information

A dispatch from Denver last night says:
While the Victor miners' union has de¬
nounced the dynamite outrage of yesterday,
and the convention of the Western Federa¬

a reward for the perpetrators, damaging

books and records of the union were search¬
ed when the hall was raided yesterday, and
among the archives was a quantity of pho¬
tographs of non-union men who havfe been
employed in the mines of the district since
the strike began last fall. Some of these
photographs are peculiarly marked, and
these are of the men who were dynamited
yesterday, many who were shot or bea'en
at various times and a large number who
have disappeared.
It has developed that nearly half of the
miners now at work in the district are
union men who have deceived the mine
owners, and these men, whose names were
gathered from the union's books seized at
Victor, will not only lose their employment,
but will be deported from the district if the
mine owners and Citizens' Alliance have
their way. It will require vigorous action
by the authorities to prevent bloody (Hashes

Gov. Peabody Returns to Colorado.
A dispatch from St. Louis last night says:
Gov. James H. Peabody of Colorado left for
Colorado today at 2:15 p.m. over the Bur¬
lington road. Up to the time of his de¬
parture Gov. Peabody received numerous
telegrams from the Colorado authorities
apprising him of the situation in the dis¬
turbed districts. 0
A dispatch from Harrisburg. Pa., last
night says: A conference to* determine
whether the senatorial vacancy created by
Senator Quay's death shall be filled by
appointment or by an extra session of the
legislature was held tonight at the ex¬
ecutive mansion between Gov. Pennypacker, United States Senator Penrose and
Insurance Commissioner Durham, who con¬
trol the situation.
The governor spent several hours today
examining the law on the subject, and It
is thought he reached a decision and will
announce it in the near future. The opin¬
ion still prevails here that an extra ses¬
sion of the new legislature will be held
next December for the election of a Sen¬
ator, and that the governor is in perfect
accord with the republican state leaders.
Those who profess to know the gov¬
ernor's plans say that he prefers to make
an appointment for the remainder of Sen¬
ator Quay's term, which expires next
March, but that lie believes under the
state constitution it is mandatory on him
to call an extra session before the meet¬
ing of the next legislature, which will con¬
vene in biennial session in January.
Men Win in Delaware.
A dispatch from Dover, Del., last night
says: The democratic state convention late
this afternoon indorsed Federal Judge Geo.
Gray for the presidency and instructed the
six national delegates to support him. This
was brought about by the Gray followers,
despite- the announcement that the judge
had written a letter to ex-Judge David T.
Marvel of Wilmington, asking that the in¬
struction of delegates in his favor be with¬
held in the interest of party harmony and
as he has no ambition for the presidency.
The anti-Gray forces fought for the sub¬
stitution of the word "request," and it was
believed at last night's conferences between
the factions that they had carried the day.
but this afternoon the committee on reso¬
lutions by a vote of 8 to 7 adopted a reso¬
lution of specific instructions and the con¬
vention upheld this action.
The platform denounces the administra¬
tion of Roosevelt, criticises the tariff, and
wants the growing militarism of our gov¬
ernment checked.
