long distance telephono Willi Governor
Vardaman. tr. White Bald the governor
had given courteous consent to the estab
lishment of a detention camp on the Mis
sissippi side of the state line on the Louis
ville & Nashville road and would arrange
for the admission Into Mlxslsslppl points of
persons from New Orleans who enter the
camp and are discharged with certificates
of the federal fcurgeotiS. There Is no longer
any obstacle therefore to the movement of
passengers through Mississippi.
The question of whether federal control
of the situation ought to be Invited Is still
discussed, but unless graver conditions
arise It Is not regarded as unlikely that
there will be any movement in that direc

Another phase of the controversy between
the states of Louisiana and Mississippi has
developed In the fl'.'ng of writs of ejectment
and Injunction against the Mississippi mili
tia In the federal courts. ,
The suit was brought by Albert Baldwin
banker and capitalist of this city. Mr.
Baldwin seeks to enjoin the Mississippi sol
diers from taking possession of his Ashing
and hunting lodge on Pdart river. It seems
that permission was asked to occupy the
place for the militia during guard duty on
the border and It was refused. The troops
answered that unless granted permission
in a certain time they would break open
the place. " Yesterday they broke in and

distinctly In Louisiana territory, and, it Is
added, does not even come under that ter
ritory now In dispute before the supreme
court of the United States. It was found
today that a man named Blunt, claiming to
be In charge of the Mississippi patrol In
those waters, had Btationed himself on the
bridge armed with two shot guns and kept
the brldgekeeper from opening the draw to
allow boats to pasB out from Lake Pont
chartraln Into Luke Borgne. Many other
complaints also have been received.
There are eighteen boats now at Ship
Island which were captured by the patrol
and towed by the Revenue Cutter Winona
to Ship Island quarantine station. It Is
claimed that every one of these vessels was
taken In Louisiana waters.
Another complication has developed In
the same connection. The British ship
Brayhrad. after completing Its cargo In
New Orleans, stopped at the Mississippi
side of the Lake Borgne canal to get a
deck load of timber, but the Mississippi
boats absolutely refused to allow a tug to
go to the mouth of Fcarl river to get the
barge and rafts. The Brayhead had to
leave without the cargo, and the agents and
the owners will lay the matter before the
British government.

Wyman of the public health and marine
hospital service said today that he had not
received any official notification of the con
flict between the state authorities of Louis

quarantine. He added:

New Jersey Official Has
Troubles and May
Return Home.
NEW YORK, Aug. 2. According to state
ments tonight. Mayor William H. IMcher
of Paterson. N. J , has not returned to his
home there, and there Is considerable
speculation as to his whereabouts.
Allen M. Chalmers, his law partner, in a
statement today, said that Mayor Belcher
had been found and that he would return
to Paterson this afternoon. This was later
modified to the effect that the mayor had
not come to Paterson, but was In New
York. Search here did not reveal him.
Late today Prosecutor Kniley of Paterson
began an investigation based on a state
ment concerning Mr. Pelcher's alleged in
debtedness to certain banks.
Mr. Alee, secretary of the Manchester
Dulldlng and Loan association. Is credited
with a statement tonight that his signa
ture hart been forged In certain transactions
by which money was raised from Pater
son banking institutions on the stock books
of the Building association.
Mr. Chalmers said today that the mayor's
financial difficulties had all been adjusted;
that Mayor Belcher owned something over
JIO.000, and that 175,000 had been pledged
to aid him, and that the claims had all
been paid in cash by himself.
Tonight Mr. Chalmers admitted that there
was a possibility Mayor Belcher might not
return. He said that for a long time past
his partner had not been himself. The Ill
ness, coupled with his hard work as a
lawyer and a mayor, appeared to have worn
him out.

Xo Time to Discuss
ST. PETERSBURG. Aug. . 2:58 a. m.
There was no session yesterday of the
commission which has under considera
tion the national assembly scheme. Em
peror Nicholas will preside at the second
meeting which will be held this afternoon.
At the first meeting on Tuesday the Im
perial palace at Feterhof was the battle
ground of the contending forces In the
matter of reform. For five hours, taking
advantage of the emperor's request, -there
was the freetst and frankest discussion of
the situation and the needs of Russia. The
respective members of the two camps pre
sented arguments before the emperor In
a series of speeches which left little time
for the actual consideration of the details
of the project, which will be elaborated
by the council of ministers.
Onposlns; Forces Meet.
Almost a Bcore of tbe members of the
conference took an active part In the dis
cussion. M. Boullgln, minister of the In
terior; General Trepoff, assistant minister
of the committee; Count Ignatleff. member
of the council of the empire; Count Sol
sky, president of the economic department
of the commute of ministers, and Frlnce
Hllkoff, minister of railroads and communi
cations, were the leading advocates of Im
mediate reform and the convocation of the
representatives of the people, while under
the banner of the old order, M. Pobedo
nostseff, procurator general of the Holy
Synod, faithful to the traditions of a life
time, who had arrayed with him Count
Lnmsdorff, minister of foreign affairs; M.
Manukhln, minister of Justice; M. Schwan
abach. minister of agriculture; General
Lobko, controller general, and Baron Fred
ericks, Count Marshal, who Insisted that
the present, with the war abroad and
the disorders at home, was no time to sum
mon a popular assembly or Institute sweep
ing changes In the government of the em
pire. The partisans of reform were In the ma
jority, Including, besides the leaders al
ready mentioned, many members of the
council of state.
Speech of Const Ignatleff.
The feature of the meeting Is said to
have been a sensational speech delivered
by Count Ignatleff. who bad been sent by
the emperor to Investigate the situation in
the south after the mutiny on the battle
Bhlp Knlax Potemklne, and who declared
In plain, clear-cut sentences that the con
ditions there made immediate and exten
sive reforms imperative. At the same time
he declared order must be preserved and
the agitators kept within bounds with a
firm hand.
General Trepoff, Minister Boullgln and
Count Solsky also emphasized the neces
sity of adopting firm measures while In
stituting reforms. Other progresslvlsts
dwelt more upon the necessity of the Im
mediate convocation of the people.
Three of the ministers, Lieutenant Gen
eral Rudlgler, minister of war; M. Glasoff,
minister of education, and M. Kokosvsoff,
minister of finance1, did not commit them
selves, and four of the grand dukes present
avoided taking active part In the discus
sion. ,".
When the peech-maklng was finally
ended and tbe altitude, of the council mani
fested, consideration of the Boullgln propo
sition was taken up and this discussion will
be continued at today's meeting at Feter
hof. The Associated Tress Is Informed that as
yet no Important decision has been taken
and the general impression Is that the
commission will not finish Its labors with
out at least one or two more sessions.

forces for more than bIx months. How
ever, even as the things stand, the Japa
nese have not made such progress as Is
generally believed. In fact, they would have
to advance four times as much as they have
done in the last year and a half to reach
Russia proper. In which case alone they
might consider themselves In a position to
Impose such conditions of peace.
But they are very far from this and the4
more iney anvance norm, ine more me re
sjiectlve conditions of the Russians and
Japanese will be reversed.
According to the Russian plenipotentiary
those who do not know Russia well oppose
to these reasons the spectre of Internal
conditions of the empire. Imagining all
kinds of cataclysms, but even about this
they are mistaken. M. Wltte did not wish
to discuss at this time the events in Russia,
affirming, however, that they have not the
character nor the gravity attributed to
them, nor can they bring about the con
sequences which have been supposed, partly
by those prejudiced against Russia and
partly by those Ignorant of Russian inter
nal affairs. What s going on In the Mus
covite empire, he said, cannot have an
influence on its foreign policy and even
less on the continuation or cessation of the
M Wltte Indicated that he does
not mean to say that he will
not make every possible effort to
wards peace, adding that he Is favorable
to peace as a Russian and as a man, hav
ing always worked to prevent war and un
derstanding that at present nearly the en
tire world desires the end of the conflict.
However, he feels that to reach this sub
ject it is necessary that the Japanese
should be prompted by the same feelings;
that they should be convinced that for
Russia It Is desirable, but Is not at all
indlspenslble, and that consequently it
will never accept any condition which ap
parently may offend Its "amour propre
M. Wltte repeated that he will honestly
do ell that his conscience may suggest to
bring about If possible an agreement which
may be equally satisfactory to the inter
ested nations. After having done this, no
matter what the results may be, M. Wltte
feels that he will have accomplished his

At the headquarters of the Japanese
peace commissioners tonight no comment
was made upon the Associated Press in

has met all interviewers since the Japan

tonight that Baron Komura would make

of the game there, delegations from Alaska
having protested against sending anybody
in "there with permission to shoot and bring

them and starvation.
