NW YORK, Aug. 25. Major. General
MacArtbur made public today the tit of
the rulea agreed upon for the coming army
and navy mancuvcra. The whole scheme
la based upon the assumption that. In. ex
pectation of a declaration of hoetllltlea, a
strong hostile fleet, without torpedo boat,
determines to make a audden dash on the
eastern entrance of Long -Island sound .to
ecure a navaT base; in the expectation of
finding the land forces. In the absence of a
declaration of war, In- a somewhat unpre
The periods of the Maneuvers are to be
divided Into two distinct phases period of
preparation and period of hostilities. Dur
ing the first It. la decided there ahaU.be'
a day attark and . a night attack by
the (left, and If possible a bombardment
and the enforcement of a pannage. During'
this, mines and obstructions may be planted
by the defense, and the conditions of war
are to" be followed as closely as possible.
On the part of the army the Information
to ba gained relates- to the general effi
ciency, down to the smallest detail, of all
that appertains to the construction add
armament of the-, land defenses and the
trainlag of the forces manning them.
The nary wJU concern Itaelf with the best
means of obtaining ranges, the effect of
mines and obstructions, forming of attack,
searchlights and the general control of ar
Jaogea aaa Time.
Umpires of both services will be de
tailed, to all forts and ships and will re
port to a board of arbitration of five offi
cers, whose Judgment will be final. In
addition, a number of observers will act
with each force aa the representative of
the other. The period of preparation will
be from midnight August 29 to midnight

tending from the latter hour to noon Sep.
tember (. .
The defense will consist of Forts Rod
man, .Adams, Wetherill Qreble, Mansfield,
Wright, Mlchle, Terry and the fort on
Gardner's Point." There will be no floating
defenses. The attack will consist of about
fifteen ships, of which Ave will rank aa.
battleships and the rest aa cruisers and
gunboats. The umpires and observers will
assemble at the War college at Newport,
August 27, to discuss the rules, and on
August 29 will be distributed to their va
rtous stations. The naval militia will em
bark at Newport on August 30, to be dis
tributed to the ships. At the close of the
mancuvera the attacking fleet will paaa In
review before the forts.
Elaborate rules are laid down to estimate
the value of the fire of guna of all caliber
so aa to determine when any shin or fort
shall be considered to have been put out of
action or silenced. All mines are to be fully
conuectod and furnished with dummy
cbargea and fuses, the explosion of which
will be supposed to entail the destruction
of any vessel passing over a mine. No com
munication will be held with the shore by
the fleet, except under a flag of truce and
no boats til ba allowejrtong8de the ships.

These figures Indicate .that Ulttaracv

Ten of the nineteen atatea and territories
yielding gold showed an Increased produc
tionCalifornia leading with $1,075,200, an
increaaa due entirely to the normal develop

tha material gain ot $967,400, which came
largely from the newly discovered camp of
Tonapah, in Nye county, although nearly
every county In the state Increased lta pro

$301,900. Idaho $144,600 and Oregon $123,400.
The greatest decrease, amounting to $1,-
286,800, waa In Alaska. There It waa due to
the lateness of the season, which delayed
tha opening of the placers, and to litigation,
which interfered with the development of
the induatry. Colorado diminished $1,136,900,

greatest gain 1,493,200 ouncea waa In

He Waats Soand Laws.
I want lawa to enable us to deal , with
it, no matter what shape It takes. I want
to see the government able to get at It
definitely, ao that the action of the gov
ernment cannot be evaded by aov turn
ing, within or without federal or aiate
atatutes. At present we really have no
efficient control over a big corporation
which doea buainesa in more than one
state. I do not think you can get action
by any atate, or action by alt the states
that will give ua eatlsfactory control of
the trusts or big corporations, and the re
sult Is that at present we have a great,
powerful, artificial creation, which has no
creator to which it is responsible.
Let Conarress Be the Doctor.
What I hone to see la power given to the
national legislature which ahali make the
control real. It would be an excellent
thing if we could have all the statea art
on omewhat similar lines, so that It would
be unnecessary for the national government
to act, but ail of you know the atatea will
not act on somewhat similar lines. Noth
ing has been done In. the direction of In
telligent dealing by the atatea aa a collec
tive body with these great corporations.
Hers In Massachusetts you have what I
regard as, on the whole, excellent corpora
tion lawa. I think that most of our diffi
cultieshere again remember I am not
promising the mllienlum. It is not In my
power to promise it would be In a fair
way to solution If we had the power to put
on the national statute books and did put
on them, lawa for the nation much like
you have here, on the subject of corpora
tions. In Massachusetts.
So, you can see, gentlemen, I am not
advocating anything very revolutionary. I
am advocating action to prevent anything
Pabllelty the First Reejalalte.
The first thing we want Is publicity, and
I do not mean publicity aa a favor by
aome corporations. I mean it aa a right
from all corporations affected by the law.
I want publicity of the easentlal facta In
which the public haa an Interent. I want
knowle'dge given to the accredited repre
sentatives of the people of (acta an which
those representatives can, If they see fit,
base their actions later. The publicity It
self would cure many evils.
Some of these things I have said can be
done now. A good deal la being done now.
Aa far as the anti-trust lawa go they will
be. enforced. No suit will ba undertaken
for the sake of seeming to undertake It.
Every suit that Is undertaken will be begun
becauae the great lawyer and upright man
whom we are ao fortunate to have aa at
torney general. Mr. Knox, believes that
there la a violation of the law which we
can get st snd when the suit la under
taken It will not be coropromUed excepting
on the basts that the government wins.
Mora for National Legvlalatare.
Of course, gentlemen, no taws amount to
anything unless they are administered hon
estly snd fesrleasly. Then I believe I am
not going to aay I am sure of It, but It is
possible to frame national legislation which
shall givs us mors power than we have
now, at any rate over corporations doing
an Interstate business. I cannot guarantee
that because in the past It has more than
once happened that we have got laws on
the statute books which those who mada
them Intended to mean one thing and when
they came up for derUInn It was found
that the intention mtd not been success
fully put into efTect. Bjt I believe that
additional legislation can be made. I think
we have got to make up our minds to the
fact that no matter what our reverence for
the past may be. our duty to the present
and to the future will force ua to ae that
more power la conferred upon the national
administration. When the power has been
conferred It will rest with the national
government to exercise It. At present we
are going to do the best we can with
straw less brirka, but remember they are
bound to be strawiesa.

change ot carriages, the mayor entering
that of the president, in place of J. T. Wil

Mayor Sbepard'a seat, and tha march waa
taken up to the city ball.
Factories, shops and stores generally
closed at noon and ' the streets were
thronged with people. Fully 150,000 peo

continually. The president's appearance on
