OYSTER BAT, N. Y.. Aug. 8. At a con
ference between President Roosevelt and
Attorney Oeneral Knox today, the con
ditions under which the Commercial Cable
company mar lay its Pacific cable to the
Philippine: were agreed upon. A decide
th condition practically give the govern
ment control of the cable.
During the afternoon the conference be
tween the president and Attorney Oeneral
Xnox developed Into one of Ihe moet Im
portant that baa been beld at Sagamore
Hill. ' '
Several month ago th Pad Be Commer
cial Cable . company sought parmlaislon
from the executive branch of th govern
ment to lay a Pacific cable running from
Can Francisco Tla Honolulu and Onto to
China, (bore to connect with th British,
cable to th Philippines. Th proposition
of th company was to aaauro all expanse
of laying and operating th cable. For th
concessions of landings at Ban Francisco,
Honolulu and Guam th company proposed
to grant tbe United State government
apeclal rates, and In certain conditions of
war practically absolute control. Th con
dition a presented by th company to
th president were naturally such as any
corporation might make. They had been
drawn for th protection of th company'
Mr. Roosevelt referred th whole subject
to Attorney General Knox with a request
that ha go carefully over ' the proposed
conditions, eliminating . such as he might
regard a impracticable and adding such
ethers as be might believe would subserve
the Interest of th government. Th re
aulta of his Investigation and bis con
clusion Mr. Xnox presented to President
Roosevelt todsy. In verbal form, th papers
- a. " - v. . i ,
before the president.
Approve Amended Coadttieao.
President Roosevelt approved of th
mended . condition end, so far ' a th
xecutlv branch of th government Is con
cerned, the company now 1 may proceed
with the work of" laying the cable. It la
regarded as essential, however,, that th
conditions be ratified by act ef congress, a
ootna douM !st of the rights, of the
cxecuUv brunch uf ihe government alone
to grant such privileges as are included
In '.ha Pacific Commercial Cable company's
Th conditions a approved by Mr. Roose
velt are regarded a particularly favorable
to th government, and It Is believed that
.with th cordial Indorsement of th presi
dent, which he will give tbe proposition In
XXt messag next December, congress will
ratify the conditions without serious delay.
' Attorney General Knox added several Im
portant conditions to those proposed by
tbe company. Including these:
That the Untied Btatee government at all
times shall have priority ot service.
That tbe government, through the post
master general, as Is customary In such
contracts, shall have the right to fix the
.rats to be charged by .he company.
1 That tn time of war the government shall
have the right absolutely to control th
cable. That In order to protect not only
the government, but elao Individual private
customers of the company, the Pacific
Commercial Cable company 's required to
lny a distinct line of cable from China to
Manila, ao that it will not be necessary to
depend upon the British company . which
row controls the only cable from Hong
Kong to Manila, and. finally, that the
United State at any time after the com
pletion of the cable, may purchase the line
at an appraised valuation to be fixed by
Arbitrators selected In the tivual manner
by the tw parties to the transaction.
V Practically Be Goverameat Llae.
. By the who hav studied th subject
It 1 believed that a cab! laid under th
condition proposed will be, to all Intents
acd purposes, a government cable line,
with few If any of th disadvantages at
. tendant upon government construction and
Under the United States' treaty with
China the Chinese government, having
granted to a British company th right to
tcalntaln and operate a cable Ho within
It domain, will be obliged to grant to th
FaclQo Commercial Cable company, an
American corporation, . the earn rights.
This will enable the company not only to
land Its Ban Francisco line In China, but
will also enable it to obtain a Chinese
terminus for its line to Manila. In ths
laying of its cable line the company baa
"been accorded the right to uee th United
State government aoundlngs.
Attorney General Knox Is Inclined to the
toplclon that the company will practically
"proceed Immediately to construct Its lines.
'Considerable time will be required tor the
preliminary arrangements befor th actual
laying of the rable begins, but It Is re
garded now as certain that an American-
owned and operated cable lla to th Orient
Is In sight.
Attorney General and Mrs. Knox left late
this afternoon for Atlautlc City.

No Intimation that th vessel left her

til th news was received that the Japanese
government had laid claim to the land and
had dispatched a war vessel there. Colonel
Thomas Fitch then mad public th In
structions given to Captain Rosehlll,
which, while designed to prevent any con
flict, were Intended to compel tbe Japanese
to allow the American to land, or us
force to drive them away.
Captain Rosehill's Instruction front th

"traffic agreement", a clos alliance ha
been entered Into between th Chicago, Mil

Pacific system, on representing th Rocke

western system f th Goulds.
' By th alliance the former company will
cure a direct line to Salt Lake City and
tbe Missouri Pacific will gain a direct en
trance from the Kaaeaa City gateway Into
Chicago. This will plaoe the St. Paul system
with a terminus more than midway to ths

which are owned by th Gould lntereet.

It means that th St. Paul will rater the
field a a competitor for the traffic between
Chicago and Kansas City, something It has
not heretofore attempted, save on freight.
This competition will be made possible by
the completion of cutoff lines., It is under

Mlaale Mitchell.
CHICAGO, Aug. I. The body ot th young
woman found last night In a lacant lot at
Seventy-fourth and Stat streets has been
Identified that of Miss Minnie Mitchell
of (04 Fourty-foiirth street, and th police
are looking for William Bartholin, a young
mechanic who waa with her at the tlm
of her dieappearance.
The ease I shrouded la mystery, but
th police ar firmly of the opinion that
the girl wa murdered by Bartholin and
that he also murdered bis own mother, Mrs.
Anna Bartholin, who mysteriously disap
peared three weeks befor the Mitchell
girl went away with tbe young man.
The body of the girl was beyond Identi
fication, but her sister, Llllte Mitchell, to
night positively Identified tbe dress, the
petticoat of lavender silk and the bat worn
by her sister at the time of her disap
pearance and there Is no doubt In th minds
ot tbe police that the body Is that of Min
nie Mitchell. ,
Miss Mitchell waa last seen by the mem
ber of her family on tb tight of July 10,
when she left her father'c hous in com
pany with Bartholin, th coup) saying that
they intended to take a walk. She did not
return to th house that tight and noth
ing waa heard ot her or of Bartholin until
two day later, when the girl' father re
ceived a not from Bartholin saying that
be and the girl bad eloped and bad started
for -California to spend their honeymoon.
Mrs. Annie Bartholin, the mother, whom
the police firmly bell ere wa killed by bar
son, dlssppeared from her home at 4310
Calumet avenue a month ago. Her son
Bvde no report of her disappearance to
the police, and a man who had boarded
with her ior years reported the matter,
saying that he was confident that she had
met with foul play, tor the reason that
she' had said nothing about going away
and had disappeared on a washing day
ao suddenly a to leave tb cloth in the
tub. He thought she was lying dead In
her room. Officers were at once sent to
th hous and forced th door of ' her
apartment, but found no trace of ber. Her
sen said that ah bad gone to Milwaukee
and. as there reason at that tlm
to think that he had been murdered, th
matter was allowed to drop.
The day after the visit of the police to
the residence of hie mother, Bartholin
called for tb Mitchell girl, and they went
away together. The letter written by Bar
tholtn- to Mr. 'Mitchell was' posted In Chi
cago two days after his disappearance.
Bartholin la 28 years of age, and haa beea
employed as a mechanic In a wagon shop
at Auburn park. He has not been aeea
by his employer for mora than two weeks,
and they have received, no word from him.
There Is no known motive tor the mur
der, but the wbund in the back of the
nlvCuwll iui'i umu am a iiaaieq as io
render It out of th question that she could
have Inflicted It herself, asd there la no
doubt that ah was murdered.
Why the son should have tried to mak
away with hi mother Is not known, and
there Is no evidence that she has been
killed beyond the fact that she has dis
appeared and cannot be found. She kept
roomer la her house, eome ff whom had
lived wllhiher for twenty nru Ehe was
not in the hablt of learlnghiev bom, and
men in he, house are confident that she
would not 'have -.done so without saying
something to them befor leaving.
The police base their belief In her-mnr
der on the fact that Bartholin disappeared
so quickly after he knew that his mother'
disappearance was being Investigated.

lasBortaat berlalrs.
NEW TORK. Aug. 8. Th board of
ciaslficatloa of the United States general
appraisers . todsy rendered a decision of
great Importance to all classes , of Import
ers. In relation to th Jurisdiction of the
board. It is beld that the Jurisdiction and
authority of the board, a laid down under
the law, 11 absolute and la not shared br
th Treasury department.
For some tlm past, It Is aald, there has
been a growing practice on the part of
tbe Treasury department to .withdraw pro
test that had coma befor th board, pre
sumably to correct error, and then never
bring the cases before the board again.
Instead of that, the department would sim
ply announce a ruling which would cover
th case In question.
The board of classification now holds In
effect that such action really amounts to
an attempt on the part ot th department
to exercls judicial function concurrently
with the board, and that It I aa usurpation
of judicial function wholly without war
rant in law.
Th great Importance of such a de
cision will appear from th fact that th
Board ot United State General Appraisers
Is a permanent body. Its decisions ar
subject to review by the government courts,
but, th board now hold,' matters 'which
come under Its jurisdiction cannot be de
cided by tbe Treasury department. This
case, like all others ot the board of classi
fication, may be taken to tbe federal sfea'ts
and ultimately to tbe supreme court of the
United States.
The decision waa rendered In the matter
of two protests filed by J. 8. Johnson A
Co. hgalnst the decision cf tbe collector
of customs at New Tork as to ' tbe rate
and amount of duties chargeable on cer
tain merchandise ao Imported on Antllia
and entered respectively June 13 and May
15. 190L
The opinion relatea that the proteata were
transmitted to the board under section 14
of tbe custom administrative act of Jun
10. 1890.
Th collector requested th return of
the protests and ths related papers to bis
office. This the board denlea la a long
decision, which concludes as follows:
"Our conclusion Is that the application
of the collector Is without merit, and 'la
unauthorized and must be denied. It Is so
ordered. The protests will be docketed
for hearing by tbe board, of which the par
tie will have due notice."
WASHINGTON. Aug. 8. Referring to tbe
decision of tbe classification board of the
board of general appraiser at New Tork.
treasury officials aald today that there
never had beea any difference of opinion
between the board and the Treasury de
partment as to the former' Jurisdiction.
Tbe board's decisions on tb' question of
classification may be reviewed, oa appeal,
by tbe courts, but on the, question of valua
tion the board haa absolute jurisdiction.
In neither case does an appeal lie to tbe
Treasury department. This ruling has beea
In force tor several year. Ia cas of

has ae recourse except to remove members

Turkey Rua Hill today on an errand ot
mercy and rescued a email family from
violence of the neighbors. There has been

Today Brigadier Oeneral Oobln received
a pathetlo letter from the wife of a non

hsd been thrown through the windows at
night, one of them nearly striking her
sleeping child, the house was damaged and
while she was outdoors one night a shot
was fired at her. She also said crowds gath
ered around the house, hooted and jeered at
her and .the child and hung crape on the
door. Her husband, she concluded, was
compelled to stay in the mine In order to
earn money to keep them from atarvtng

asked th commanding officer of tbe troops
here to protect her.
Turkey Run Hill haa no police protection
and Oeneral Oobln decided to help the
woman. He learned that aha was not In th

rode all over the territory and found that
the population, which is made up ot many
foreigner, wa not In the best frame of

one stone was thrown at the horsemen,
and this wa done by someone In a crowd
on a high ridge out of reach of the horse
men. . Th cavalry stopped their horses and
the crowd scattered Inatantly.

might well have been aald of the metropolis
of tbe empire that It wa living up to th
national reputation of taking It pleasure
somewhat sadly.
Tbe absence of blatant horns and annov-
lr.g features was pleasantly atoned tor by
tbe lighting up of many building. Ths
brilliancy of the illumination held th coun
try visitor to th city so spellbound that
vehicle traffic became more and more diffi
cult aa the night wore on. Until a very
late hour the atand speculator did a thriv
ing business and around those stands occu
pying good location there wer line of
people anxious to get seats at the last mo
ment. Many of th thousands who walked
through the street displayed unmistakable
sign of determination of sitting up all
night for the purpoa of aeoarlng good seat
for tomorrow.
