NEW YORK, Aug. 3. Acting for the
president. Third Assistant Secretary Pelrce
today communicated to Baron Rosen, the
Russian ambassador, and Mr. Takahlra,
the Japanese minister, the official program
for the formal presentation to the presi
dent of the Russian and Japanese plenipo
tentiaries to the Washington conference.
This program has for weeks been a sub
ject of much study on the part of the pres
ident and Mr. Pelrce.
As the president's representative, Mr.
Pelrce will accompany Baron Komura and
Mr. Takahlra and their suite to the pier
of the New York Yacht club, at East Twenty-Third
street, at 9 o'clock Saturday morn
ing, where the delegation will board the
protected cruiser Tacoma, Commander
Reginald F. Nicholson commanding, and
the vessel will start for Oyster Bay.
Half an hour later Mr. Pelrce will per
form a similar ceremony for Mr. Witte and
' Baron Rosen, the Russian plenipotentiaries
and their suite, will go aboard the protected
cruiser Chattanooga, Commander Alexan
der Sharp commanding.
Mr. Pelrce will then board the converted
yacht Sylph, which, steaming rapidly ahead.
will take position at the front of the col
Arriving at Oyster Bay about noon, the
"peace squadron" will anchor, Its arrival
being loudly heralded by the firing of an
ambassador's salute of nineteen guns.
The Japanese plenipotentiaries will come
on board the Mayflower from the Tacoma
and be presented by Assistant Secretary
Half an hour later the Russian envoys
will come aboard and be presented. Imme
diately the president will formally present
the Russian and Jupanese plenipotentiaries
to each other.
Luncheon on the Mayflower.
A buffet luncheon in the cabin of the
Mayflower will follow. At its conclusion
the Japanese mission will take leave of
the president and board the Dolphin. Mr.
Pelrce will go aboard the cruiser Galveston
and the president will then take leavo of
the Russian mission and go ashore, again
receiving a salute of twenty-one guns.
Under convoy of the cruiser Galveston,
Commander Cutler oommandlng, with Mr.
Pelrce aboard, the Russians on the May
flower and the Japanese on the Dolphin
will sail for Portsmouth. The squadron will
steam slowly, so as not to arrive there
before 10 o'clock Monday morning.
Desirous of being strictly neutral In all
the arrangements for the presentation, It
was decided at the outset by the Washing
ton government that the president would
recognize no precedence based on successes
In the present war. Because Baron Komura
was presented at Sagamore Hill almost a
week before M. Witte arrived In this
country. It was decided that for this rea
son Baron Komura must take precedence
over M. Witte. This, however, will be rec
ognised only in the half hour's difference

Mr. Witte had an active day today. He
has already seen more of New York than
most visitors see In a week. Accompanied
by Mr. Wllkenllne, Russia's financial agent
at Washington, Mr. Witte left his hotel
at 9 o'clock in an automobile on a ride
through Central park. Then he visited
Grant's tomb and the Stock exchange.
From there he went to the top of one of
the towering downtown buildings to get a

Mr. Witte then went Into the subway and
took an express train uptown. Back down

CHICAGO, Aug. 3 Gamblers Intent upon
playing the races, and policemen determined
to prevent all race track betting bn the
high sess. furnished today on Lake Michi
gan a unique and' spectacular gambling
raid. The police and gamblers raced around
the lake, first Into Michigan waters, then
close to the shores of Illinois, and then Into
the Jurisdiction of Indiana, the on seeking
escape and the police determined to cap
ture them at all hazards. The net results
of the day for the police were the capture
of fourteen weary marine gamblers who
floated ashore at South Chicago In a launch.
All of the others after a hot chase by the
police in a lumbering fire tug escaped to
Indiana Harbcr, Ind., and made their way
ashore outside of the jurisdiction of the
Chief of Police Collins announced two
days ago that he would no longer permit
the operation of the floating pool room
City of Traverse. He asserted that he
would arrest all the gnmblers when they
attempted to board It, claiming that they
were about to commit an Illegal act which
brought them within police Jurisdiction.
Gamblers Win First Move.
The gamblers circumvented the chief of
police at the outset by causing the steamer
City of Traverse to be run out Into the
lake Into the wnters of the state of Indi
ana, where it lay all through the morning.
Large details of police were placed on the
shore guarding the approaches to all of the
docks from which the gamblers might mane
their way to the lake. It was the expecta
tion of the authorities that the betting fra
ternity would leave Chicago on the City
of Traverse, but Instead of this a small
excursion steamer nnmed the Eagle had
been chartered and the gamblers, walking
past the police, embark1 and started for
the City of Traverse, which was rolling
around In mi-lake. The police were power
less to Intercept any of the "excursion
ists," as they called themselves, and with
deep chagrin watched them sail away to
place their money on the races.
The announced program of the managers
of the floating pool room was thnt all pas
sengers would be landed at the foot of
Ninety-Second street In South Chicago,
where the Calumet river empties Into Lake
Michigan. Chief Collins, balked In his at
tempt to prevent the sailing of the gamb
lers on the Eagle, transferred his forces to
Ninety-Second street and posted them
along the shore in such a manner that it
would have been practically Impossible
for any titan from the. City of Traverse or
the Eagle to set foot on shore and escape
Speculators Caught In Trap.
Late In the day the Eagle steamed Into
the harbor at South Chicago, loaded with
200 men who were anxious to reach the
shore. As soon as the boat was well in
side of the first bridge it was swung be
hind It. With escape to the lake cut off
by the bridge and no possible chance of a
safe landing on shore, the case of the
gamblers for a time looked desperate. The
Eagle circled around and around In the
harbor, tooting its whistle In frantic fash
ion for the bridge tender to turn the bridge
and allow it to steam back Into the lake.
The police stood on the shore and laughed,
feeling confident that It was only a ques
tion 'of time before the passengers of the
Eagle would be In their power. A small.
Insignificant mud scow happened along at
this critical moment, however, and blew Its

The bridge tender was compelled to swing
the bridge and the Eagle, planting its bow
squarely In the stern of the mud scow,
crowded It closely as It passed through
the bridge and then made a run for the
open lake and freedom.
As soon as the police discovered the ap
proach of the mud scow and realized that
the bridge must open, they made a rush for
the fire tug Yosemlte, and by the time the
Eagle was entering the waters of the lake
the tug was tearing after It, loaded down
The Eagle, however, steadily drew away
from the tug, and after a run of ten miles
the police gave up tha chase. The Eagle
landed at Indiana Harbor, its passengers
returning tQ Chicago by train.
Gamblers Did Xot Gamble.
Before the arrival of the Eagle at South
Chicago a small launch named the Panther
came In, bearing a number of gamblers
from the City of Traverse and several
fishermen. All the passengers of the Pan
ther were lined up on the pier and com
pelled to-stand In a heavy rain while the
police weeded out the fishermen from the
Fourteen men who could not prove that
they had been fishing were loaded Into the
patrol wagon and carried, to the police sta
tion. The gamblers who returned to Chicago
this evening declared that, even though the
police had arrested all the passengers of the
Eagle, they would have found It Impossible
to prove a case against them, as the wire
less apparatus refused to work throughout
the day, and not a message was received
and not a bet was made.

Mr. Bchulze's door, and every candidate
was urged not to accept employment. Their
efforts, however, were entirely peaceable.
Tonight Mr. Schulze said that he had se
cured twenty-eight operators. This the
union men deny, saying that they have dis

told to report in New York on Sunday pre

Some Rrtarn to Work.
MINOT, N. D., Aug. . During the last
eighteen hours there has been a big Im
provement In the telegraphers' strike situ
ation on the Mlnot division of the Great
Northern railroad. Twelve operators have
returned to work. About 48 per cent of the
stations between Wllllston and Grand
Forks are in working order. All branch
lines on this division are running as usual.
Train No. 6 from the west was one hour
late and No. 3 from the west was forty-five
minutes late. Assisstant Superintendent
Davis Is much elated over results and says
more operators will return to work today.
There are about seventy strikers on the
Mlnot division. They are orderly and have

of the Mill and Bmeltermen's union of

on the Northern Pacific road and tonight
several hundred smeltermen held a meet

compelled Spurrier to quit work under pain
of being "escorted from town," an expres

operators were looked for, but none were
dispatch from Cleocj tonight, a point
on the Great Northern about fifty miles I
north of Butte, says that the miners there
drove the operator from the only boarding
house In the town because he refused to
stay with his comrades on strike. The man
had to be fed by the division superintendent
on the tatter's car.
At Basin, forty miles north of Butte, on
the Qrest Northern, the Helnse miners and !
mill men requested a "scabbing" operator
to cease work. The telegrapher armed him-
self with a rifle and defied the miners, to !
the number of about sixty, who gathered ;
with a long rope with a noose In the end, !
when the man weakened and several hours
later left the camp. i

Despite reports emanating from the gen

That Is the Way the Water Company
Is Making; Out Its Ac

nounced its policy regarding the order
Issued by the Water board May 1, propos
ing to reduce meter rates to small con
sumers. Although Its request for a tem
porary Injunction against the operation of
the order has been refused by the federal
court, the company considers the question
still In litigation and until final adjudica
tion, declines to act under the order. Its
bills are made out at the old rates and pay

under protest and In such a manner as to
permit future collections of the amount
withheld in casa' the company eventually

standing that should It lose the case the
excesses will be refunded. Following are

COLLECTION OF ESTAIE TAX
Process Will Eo Slow and IdtoIts Many
Suits, Bays County Attorney.
EFFLCT OF THE LAW EXPLAINED
Several Estates Added to the List
Subject to the Inheritance Tax
"The collection of the Inheritance tag
on estates passing In this county will re
quire a great many suits, but we are get
ting at it as fast as we can," says County
Attorney Slabaugh. "The Nebsaska Inher
itance tax law Is almost an exact duplicate
of the Illinois law, which has been tested
and taken up to the supreme court and
upheld In every rsepeet. I do not believe
people unileisiand what, the effect of tho
law Is. The tax Is Imposed on every es
tate In excess of 110,000,. '.varying hi
amounts according to the closeness or re
moteness of the heirship, but the tax Is a
lien on all the property and every piece
of such property that has been sold or
transferred since July, HKil. Is subject, to
the lien of any unpaid Inheritance tux.
This applies not only to estates that have
gone through probate, but also to others,
like the Noyes estate, for which no ad
ministrator was appointed. If people hud
known that the Inheritance tax was a Hen
upon Uie property, I believe it, would have
been paid on all these estates long ugo."
t.olng Over the Papers,
Clyde Sumiblad ut the - county judge s
office is putting Irl a 'good deal of time
In going over the puprrs In estates that
have passed through probate since liwl or
are still In course of settlement which
would be liable for assessment under tn
state Inheritance tax law. I'p to date he
has found fourteen In addition to the list
of eighteen estates for, which the county
attorney has already - asked for (he ap
pointment of appraisers. ' '
The estates not yet fully settled which
will be added to the list are those of James
Crelghton, Roxena Kendall, Anna C. Mil
lard, Ellen M. White, Jans Morion and
David M. Owen. The estates which have
been settled which would come wUlitn tha
provisions ot- the law are those of Edward
W. Eartlett, Benjamin Bates, Levi Carter,
John J. Dickey, Dell H. Goodrich, Alfred
D. Jones, E. B. Chandler, Anna M. Good
rich. Mr. Sunblad says there are soms
others which he has not- yet had a chance
to investigate, but he believes the list
when completed will be quite large. The
attorneys or heirs of these estates will be
called into the conference which Is to bo
held at an early date by the county judge
and county attorney. .
