found that he had sustained a severe
concussion of the brain. He never re
gained consciousness and expired at 9
o'clock this morning. Barry, who was
arrested shortly after the death of
Croot, was taken to the Bow street po
lice court. The affair has caused great
excitement in boxing circles.
During the first ten rounds Barry did
most of the scoring in a thoroughly sci- i
jentmc struggle, men croot made a
determined stand and at the eighteenth
round had almost equalized matters.

y THE- MESSAGE
DID , NOT EXPECT IMMEDIATE
, , ACTION BY CONGRESS ,
TO BE RECOMMENDED BY THE
WHO D.OES NOT EVEN SUGGEST
AUTONOMY BY CUBANS.
WHAT CUBAN DELEGATE BEN J.
' GIBERG A SAYS-,
The Granting of Autonomy to Cuba
by Spain. Proclaims to tne World
the Justice of Cuban Rebellion and
the Right to Appeal to Arms.
New York, Nov. 7. T. Estrada, Palma,
representative of the Cuban provisional
government in the United States,' com
menting upon President McKinley's
Message, according to the Herald, says:
"I did not expect any recommendation
to congress for immediate action, but
the president left congress to decide the
time wJit'hin which an enduring peace
must be estaM'kJhed in Cuba and inti
mates the necessity of haste by the use,
in this connection, of the words 'In the
near future. He further says that in
case of tlhe faiiilure of Spain . to pacify
ihe island with the scheme of autonomy
American interests, humanity and civ
ilization will demand forcible interven
tion. As Oaipt-Gen. Blanco h&mself ad
mits that the Cubans iin arms will not
accept autonomy, tlhe time for the presw
idemt to speak, fcas arrived.
"It will be noticed that the president
does not even suggest acceptance 'of au
notomy by Cubans, and it is evident
that he would not have written the
last paragraph , in the terms that he did
if he believed . that autonomy would
bring peace in Cuba."
Mr. Benjamin Giberga, formerly a
merchant of this city,; but at present
connected w4tih the Cuban delegation
and a brother of Senor EJ'iiseo Giberga,
the Cuban senator, said to a reporter:
"The granting of aiuitonomy to Cuba
by Spain proclaims .to the world the
justice of the Cuban rebellion and the !
right the Cubans had to appeal to arms,
since only through force would Spain
'have been compelled to grant to Cuba
wthat is but a semblance of home rule.
But it is now too late even for the most
ample form of autonomy, which is not
wthat Spain is ready to concede. Spain's
autonomy will be suchln name only and
for the exclusive use of the residents of
the ports and the few, interior, town
held by Spaniards. The Cuban, patriots
now in arms are the only ones to decide
and will never accept autonomy; they
have decflared. it time and again; they
are fighting for absolute independence
and the offer of autonomy they consid
er a plain avowal by Spain that her
cause is lost. At the beginning of the
war when Martinez Campos . suggested
reforms for Cuba, a prominent newspa
per of Madrid replied, to him, voiding
public opinion, that they would send to
Cuba 'Not reforms but guns.'
"General Weyler went soon after to
Cufoia to carry out tihe policy, .then in
vogue.. Now, when ail Spaniards see
that Spain's cause is irrevocably lost,
as slhe has no money and no credlit and
no more men to send to Cuba and is
threatened With a CarMst war at any
time, besides that waged war ; against
her in. fhe PhiilUpines, they are exceed.
ingly anxtous for the Cubans to accept
autonomy. Wlhy did they refuse it be
fore? Because they considered them
selves strong and tovtnciible. Why do
they offer it now ? Because they are
convinced of their defeat. This is a slg
nal victory for ' the Cuoan' army,- sCnce
thfrough. force Spain concedes at present
what 'she formerly refused to grant will
"Spalin desired to end the war in Cuba
qufekfly, but stee can only do so by ac-
knowtledglng the independence of th
island. Never . before was Cuba so
strong as efhe is now. , Spain has never
been so weak since the war began. It is
rediculous to ask the Cubans to give up
wQnen, victory, final and 4 decisive, : is
aJbout to crown their efforts.
The Kentucky Statesman, Declares for

S. Berry, of. Covington, a friend of

' Scheme 'of Autonomy.
VWaahtaigton'Dee. " 7. Senator .'Mor
gan, the author of tlhe Cuban beilige-r
ency Joint resolutitmwMch passed the
autonomy offered by Spain. .
He eaid: "It is impossible for Spain 'to
gi ve r- or, Cuba to ' accept ' autonomy on '
the basis which, is said to toe' proposed.
It is reconcilable with, the Spanish, con
stitution and theory of colonial govern
ment, 7 and would only create- constant
fraction. It is a -tub to the whae.' '
; 'Senator Morgan said further:..; "My
posdtion on the Cuban question has of
ten been misconstrued. - Iii my course
as- to Cuba I am not animated by any
feeling of dislike toward the Spanish
race. It has tortured every one who
came within its power when subisiissfen
to its authority is the question, but that
does not concern me as a senator..
."I do 'protest however, as a man,
against the starvation of '500,000 people
to sustain the divine right of a 12-year
old boy, half Spanish and half Austrian,
to rule the native people of a country
4,000 miles away; my motive has been
to protect the lives and property of
American citizens in Cuba.
"It appears that further, delay will
be attempted in the recognition of the
existence of a war in Cuba," as the
combination of monopoly and" monarchy
seems determined to .carry : out that
policy. When, the resolution, as to the
existence of the war was introduced in
the senate, there was an effort to de
lay it there, and when it went to the
house, Mr. Reed simply locked the doer
and put tJhe key in his pocket.
"The .members submitted with . as
much grace as did our Thanksgiving
turkey to the ax, and they seemed, to
welcome the fate of the turkeys, with
pious resignation. The resolution is
yet in the house, and I have no doubt
the democratic members will insist up
on its agitation; though some of the
same men were as1 meek as to Cleve
land's policy as are the Republicans
now to that of Mr. Reed.
"There is no cause for a war with
Spain in the recognition ' of the bellig
erency of the Cuban de facto Govern
ment. The recognition of the existence
of public war in Cuba will probably en
able the patriots to drive tne fepanasn
from the island by cutting off
supplies of food, coal and munitions,
and thus terminate the war.
"The support given to the Spanish
policy of delay by certain influences in
this country is, in my opinion, due
oMefly to the speculations of certain
capitalists, who are buying up the es
tates of the refugees at trifling prices,
and desire to see the war keep up. until
they succeed in capturing everything
avadllafble, when they will begin to open
ly assist whichever power seems likely
"As for myself, I. concluded my duty
when the joint resolution , passed the
senate, and I slhall take no further
step in the matter as it now stands.
believe it is the duty to declare that
open, public war is flagrant in Cuba,
according to the unquestionable truth
of the situation; and, when we have
done that, we can proceed honorably
and in accordance wtith the laws of Na
tions to do wlhatever our national duty
requires us to. do. Until that is done
we are acting a false and double part,
wtoidh does not invite the . honest re
spect of either Cuba or Spain."

THE SON ARRIVED BY SPECIAL
, . - TRAIN -
AND FOUND HIS MOTHER STILL
HER CHILDREN AGAIN AROUND
WAITING ; FOR' V THE MOMENT
THAT WILL BE HER LAST.
At Last Reports From the Bedside: of
tjie Sufferer She Was. Entirely
Unconscious and Resting Quietly,
But Was Slowly Growing Weaker
Canton, Dec. . 7, President McKin
ley has again reached Canton. He ar
rived over the Pennsplyania in a spe
cial train at 8:55 this morning. On step-
ping off the train he inquired as to his
motlher's lieaJth and was much cheered
up by the reply that she still lived. He
was hurriedly driven to her home and
was soon att her bedside. She was then
resting quietly but was unconscious'.
Canton, Nov. 7. Once more the chil
dren of Mrs. Nancy Allison MtsKinley
have gathered about her couch . made
sacred by her tenacious struggle against
deatlh. The reunion is complete. The
president arrived before the death angel
made' hi visit and took wDtlihim the
spirit of the aged mother.
; With the chfiJdren were other relatives
among whom was the aged sister of
Mrs. McKinley, Mrs. Abigail Osborne,
mother of Consul W. M. Osborne.
The scene was a pathetic one that
beggars description. In the midst of all
there was a joy unspeakable in the
breast of the president. He was per
mitted to again see his , mother alive. He
had answered all the ctbligations of his
country. He had fulfilled his vows to
the people. He had witnessed the as-
I j tembling of congress and had been
dheered with the news at the same time
that his mother was better.
In that little upper room of the Mc
Kinley homestead this morning there
was a scene that is almost too sacred
for pen to write. The eyes of all pres
ent were Allied with tears as they wit
nessed the most remarkable rally of the
president's motfcer from the unconsc'ou.3
state into whicih she had fallen early
this morning.-!;- 1
As her famous son entered the room
accompanied by his wife and niese, M sa
Mabel McKinley, the eister of the pres
ident, Miss Helen, said: "Mother, here
are William and Ida." He knelt by her j
bed side, kissed her tenderly and rever
ently, and as he dlld so she put Her
arm about his neck and signified that
she knew him. She also recognized the
president's wife and reached her hand
toward her, and knew Misa Mabel Mc
Kinley and Jack Duncan.
It seemed to friends that she had
some how or otfcer been waiiting for the
arrival of her son. Soon after she
lapsed Into ari unconscious sit ate and the
strength that had been husbanded for f
the last meeting of on and mother
seemed to leave her.'
An hour after his arrival the president' I
sat ta the bedside, holding the hand of
his motlher. Attending physician was
surprised at the remarkable rally. At
9:3p he sail that she was gsttitig weaker
but h'e thinks she will live through
the day. '
At five o'clock this morning it Was
thought by those in attendance that
.h TWPsMfMnit -wnuild not arrivp hpf.vr
the aged mother had died. He was arx -
ious to get to her bedside. The .run was
a rapid one from Pittsburg, but. there;
wtas a sliigfht delay there in maloing tbe
transfer to the Fort. Wayne track. ,
The" presidential party was made up
of President and Mrs. 'McKinley, Sec
retary and Mins. Day, Miss Mabel Mc
Kinley, Jack Dumcan and Miss Barter.
The trip was maae in the spT.endid. coach
The train was met at the Pibiladelphia
station by Mr. Abner McKinley, the
president's brother and Messrs. Chas. R.
Miller and George B. Frease.
The journey from Pittsburg to Canton
was made without any special incident
save that the president was constantly
informed of the condition of his mother
and as he neared the city he perceptibly
became more anxious to reach the jour
ney's end and be with his mother again.
Dr. Phillips, who was present at the
time of the president's arrival and the
recognition, said af terward in comment
ing upon this that the- affair was most
remarkable. He said he bad , never
.knciwm such a recognition to occur in
a case like Mrs. McKinley's, where, the
patient was advanced in years. It : is
platin to the president, however,- that his
motlher's pulee is growing weaker and
that despite the rallies fhe 'has had, she
has. been failing sfnee he left her. r
