According to Briga dier Oeneral Arsene Perrilllatt, chief of ordnance of Louisiana, It will be five days before New Orleans Will face a crisis In the yellow feve.fr situation. General Per rilllatt arrived here - from the south last niht. "New Orleans Is suffering more from commercial anxiety," said he, "but resi dents of the city feel that the health offi cials and the various committees, aided by the federal authorities, will cope with the fever. In the meantime business In that section of the state Is at a standstill. "Unfair discrimination Is being made against IOMlslana by-other states and Its commercial Interests are suffering In con sequence. The city Is opposed to the par ishes and the parishes are arrayod against one another with tha shotgun quarantines. "The hiosqult, -which carries the disease, breeds Jn clean, stagnant water. New York Is safe, I am sure. By this time New Orleans is protected. The exodus from New Orleans is a little more than is usual at this tlme"of;. the year. While commercial Interests, arc. paralysed now, I think that the situation .will clear within two weeks. . We will staunp out the dis ease." 1 Sir Patrick Manson, K. Cn M. O., medical adviser to the Brltlhh Colonial office, who Is here on his way to Ban Francisco, de clares that mosquitoes are among the greatest curses of mankind. "We are yet In the Infancy of the dis coveries of the transmission of such dis eases by Insects," he aJd. "but in the matter of yellow fever Infection all credit should be given to the. Yankees, who went ahead of our eminent men and demon strated that the ategnomjla was the vehlole that caused all the trouble. I( there Is not, there ahoyld be fi jawy in every state making It a criminal offense to a high degree to fall to report Immediately the ' prevalence of a base -of yellow fever. The slightest attempt at concealment by a physician should be followed by summary punishment."; The eteajtiar Comus, from New Orleans, was stopped at quarantine today and will be held there, with ninely-elght pasengers Ind a crew of sixty-six, until a period of Bve days out of the port of New Orleans has elapsed. This is the time limit for yellow fever infoctlon to show itself. Igi five days will expire tonight and no medi cal examination of those on the vessel will be mads until the time limit is passed.

Magney, selected at a meeting of the socialists Sunday evening to investigate the provisions of the Dodge primary election law. began his task Mon day morning. His aim will be to And a way, If possible, for the socialists to get their candidates onto the county ticket without paying the fees provided In the law. The investigation of" the law may take several days and Mr. Magney said that until he had gone through it thor oughly, he cannot even Indicate what ac tion he may decide to take. An attack on the law Itself is not Improbable, as the socialists claim its provisions have the ef fect of shutting off the ballot all who can not afford to pay large filing fees..

OFFICIALS SAY BUSINESS IS MOVING Dispatches from Points In IVorth Dakota and Montana Say Traffic Is Seriously Inter rnpted. BT. PAl'L, Aug. '.Persistent rumors were current today that a move had been Inaugurated by the Northwestern Farmers' exchange and Merchants' associations along the lines of the Great Northern and North ern Taclflc to secure arbitration of the tel egraphers' strike. So far as could be defi nitely Ascertained no official action in this direction has yet been taken. President H. B. Terham of the Order of Railway Telegraphers stated to the Associated Press that the matter had not come before him officially, although he had reports that such a movement was on foot. "The telegraphers." said Mr. Perham, "are willing to submit their grievances to any unbiased body of men and would wel come a proposition to arbitrate coming from thfc source." . General Manager Horne of the Northern Pacific, however, had heard nothing offi cially of such a movement and declared that there was no occasion for arbitration. He said: So far as the Northern Pacific is con cerned, there Is nothlnir to arbitrate. n- tltlons are Improving eioh day and on sons: divisions are already normal. we nafl made arrangements to handle this year's crops better than It was handled last year. and rarmers and merchants along our line have no cause to worry. We are and will continue to take care of them in good style. General Superintendent Blade of the Great Northern was equally emphatic in declaring that there was no necessity for arbitration. Mr. Sladc said: So many operators are returning to work. and freight and passenger traffic is moving witn such regularity, that so far as our road is concerned the strike is at an end. We have made complete arrangements to handle out business and do not exnect anv difficulty In doing so. So far as to be noted locally conditions on both of the roads Rhowed material im provement today. Transcontinental pas senger trains were running nearer to schedulo time than they have done for sev eral days and both roads are receiving perishable freight, although commission men say they are shipping it only subject to delay. President Perham took occasion to deny a published statement that he had given up hope of securing the Intervention of President J. J. I'tll. He said that he still believed that Mr. Hill would take steps to end the struggle as soon as he reached St. Paul. Conditions In South Dakota. SIOPX FALLS. S. D., Aug. 7. (Special) The local situation in reference to the strike of the telegraph operators on the Great Northern railroad continues unchanged. Trains are running between Garretson and Yankton as best they can and the train crews continue doing all the station work at all of the small stations. The schedule said to have been submitted by the company to the men for their sig natures was placed in the hands of two of the men on this end of the line, and its conditions are said to have been quite dif ferent from the present schedule, but is stated not to contain any provisions as to a contract with the telegraphers that will insure them against a change to the old schedule at any time the company should desire to change. This schedule, it is further stated, did not bear the. signature of the general man ager or other officials of the Great North ern Railroad company, and when the two delegates reached Sioux Falls with their proposition Saturday and asked the local operators to sign it they discovered that such a schedule would have nothing to bind and assure its enforcement. The operators on this division of the road to a man refused to sign anything that does not bear the signatures of the mem bers of the strike committee. This was re garded as a practical test of the operators and the result is pointed to as showing that they mean business and that nothing in the form of a schedule that does not emanate from the committee will be con sidered by them. The line from Garretson to Sioux City is still in the same position in regard to oper ators. Only one man stayed by the com pany, and he is at Lester. According to late reports he is still at his post of duty. It is the opinion of a number or all of the striking operators in this city that the strike will last at least ten days longer. Confidence continues to be expressed that they will be able to hold out until their demands are granted. Missoula la Isolated. MISSOULA. Mont., Aug. 7. Strike con dltlons on the Rocky mountain division are regarded as serious. It Is true that some passenger trains are coming into division headquarters on time, but others are from four to six hours late. Wires, rammer daily and .otherwise, have been broken during the last few days and Missoula has been practically Isolated. Rush business. has been accepted by the Western Union, but flags have been working on the rail road. Perishable freight has been and la refused by the Northern Pacific. Yes terday trainmen held a meeting and de cided they would accept no more orders by telephone, as they feel danger confronts them. TEAMSTERS MEET IX QITAKER CITY Delivery of Coal to Hall by Xonnulon Man Causes Commotion. PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 7. While the del egates to the annual convention of the In ternational Brotherhood of Teamsters, which began in Odd Fellows' temple here today, did nothing of general Interest or of great Importance, neverthless they had a rather busy day. The feature of the day's proceedings was the appearance of a dele gate In front of the rostrum who declared that a nonunion negro coal wagon driver was delivering coal at the building in which they met. This caused considerable stir and after some debate a committee was ap pointed to look into the matter. In the meantime the negro driver was having a warm argument with several dele gates on the sidewalk of the hall, which attracted a large crowd. Delegate D. McCullum of New York was the man who discovered that the driver was pot a union driver. He (old the negro that he could not .deliver the coal while the union was In session In the building. The delegate aat on the cover over the manhole and began making a speech to the crowd that was rapidly growing larger. The non union driver appealed to the chief engineer of the building, who, finding that he could not persuade the delegate to let the coal be shot Into the cellar, sent for a policeman. The policeman ordered the delegate off the manhole, which command he obeyed and went Into the hall with some of the delegates. The coal was then unloaded without further delay. Later In the day a committee reported that the chief en gineer of the building had promts d that no more coal would be delivered by non union drivers while the teamsters are In session. In the building. Another committee reported that the em ployes of the burs and barber shops of two hotels where delegates are staying are not Connected with labor unions and It was recommended lliat delegates patronize the ' bar an brl r Kliop of another hotel 1 Noil.t ivcUiicil dunug the day ta In- dlrate the sharp fight that Is predicted will be nude against the re-election of Presi dent Cornelius P. Slim of Boston. Presi dent Shea Is opposed by Edward Oould of New York and Michael Casey of San Fran cisco. In the absence of Mayor Weaver, Fred erick J. Shoyer, director of the department of supplies, welcomed the delegates when they were called to order In the forenoon for their first session. Because of the non appearance of 8amuel Oompers, president of the American Federation of I-abor, president Shea decided not to read his annual report. He will read it when Mr. Oompers shall be present. The personnels of the various committees was announced and the convention proceeded with its routine business. There was a half hour debate over the question of Admitting reporters to the hall during the sessions. It was argued that if newspapers had been admitted to the meet ings of the union in Chicago, the strike would not have been a failure. The motion to admit the reporters was carried. RIOT AMOXO STRIKING BAKERS Disturbances In Hebrew Quarter on Lower East Side of Sm York. NEW YORK. Aug. 7 Rioting among the striking Hebrew bakers on the lower East Side throughout the day kept the police busy and compelled them to use their clubs freely. Most of the collisions between the police and tie strlkers' grew out of ef forts on the part of the latter to Induce nonunion men to Join them. No persons were seriously hurt and there were but few arrests. It is estimated tonight that upwards of 1.000 men are on strike in Manhattan, and the leaders express their Intention of clos ing every "kosher" bakery In the borough tomorrow and extending the strike to the Hebrew quarters of Brooklyn. A meeting held this afternoon at the strike headquarters in Great Central pal ace was the occasion of wild' excitement and disorder, many of the speakers being assailed and hurled into the street. An offer of mediation by Robert W. Haw thorne of the State Board of Mediation and Arbitration was rejected, the strikers declaring that they wanted no arbitration, but would welcome an Investigation of The sanitary condition of the bake-shops on the East Side. Resolutions were adopted declaring that the employers had hired gangs of roughs to intimidate the men and that the strikers were not responsible for the disorders that have attended the strike. The strikers held a meeting last night and said that they were determined to remain out of employment until a 10 hour work day Is granted. They say they are 1,800 strong and that the bosses cannot go on without them. The employers say they will soon have enough nonunion bakers If they can depend on police protection. At midnight, after a conference with his delegates, President Kurtz of the bakers' organization said there would be no set tlement with the boss bakers until they give the strikers all the conditions they ask for. There are now 2,500 strikers, ac cording to Kurtz. President Kurtz re ceived assurance from the German and Christian union No. 1, which has 1,600 men in Its order, that they would strike out of sympathy for the others Tuesday. Tonight there were Several fights on the! East Side. In many instances rioters were severely clubbed by the police. BRIDGE WORKERS TO STRIKE All Employes of American Company- Ordered Out. CLEVELAND, O., Aug. T.-The Plain Dealer tomorrow will say: Orders were Issued Monday afternoon from tha head quarters of l,be International Association of Bridge and Structural Iron Workers by Secretary J. J. JIcNamara, for a general strike against' the' American Bridge com pany from Maine to CallfornK. "It Is estimated that between 15,000 and 20.000 bridgh and structural iron workers will quit work. Bridge work will be tied up in many parts ol tne country, and a number of big building projects will be delayed. The strike of the Iron workers. when it conies, ' will affect thousands in the building Industry," The following is a copy of the order which was sent out to ninety locals of the union In the United States and Can ada by Seci etary McNamara of the ex ecutlve board: "The executive board orders a general strike against the American Bridge com pany, to take effect August 9. Order in cludes all Jobs where American Bridge company has first contract for erection." The general strike, according to Secre tary McNamara, was the outcome ,of trouble between the union and the Ameri can Bridge company over the sub-letting of a contract to a Boston concern which the union claims is "unfair." A S,000-ton contract for bridge work was let to the American Bridge company by the New York, New Haven & Hartford railroad under the impression that the complny would employ union bridge and structural workers. It was said that the company refused to consider the objection of the New Haven organization of Bridge ajid Structural Iron Workers and sub-let the work to the Boston concern. President Buchanan is expected to ar rive in Cleveland this week. The' strike will be handled from the Cleveland head quarters. HYMENEAL. VehllnB-Chambers. SIOUX CITY, la., Aug. 7.

PREPARED BV MORGAN VISITS OYSTER BAY 'inanoier Epesdi an Hour and a Half with President Eoosefelt. HANKOW RAILROAD UNDER DISCUSSION Chinese Government Desires to Pur chase the Line Which Is Con trolled by American Capitalists. OYSTER BAY. .N. Y., Aug. 7. J. Tler- pont Morgan had a conference today with President Roosevelt, lasting an hour and half. The president himself is author ity for the statement that it related prac- lcally entirely to the case of the Hankow railroad of China, a controlling Interest In which Is owned by J. P. Morgan & Co. Incidentally and as relating In a meas ure to the railroad interests held by Amer icans In China, the pending peace negotia tions formed a topic of conversation by the president and Mr. Morgan. Mr. Morgan came to Oyster Bay unher alded. While his visit was by appoint ment, nothing concerning it was permitted to leak through Official sources until after he had gone. Shortly after noon Mr. Mor gan's big steam yacht Corsair, anchored In the lower bay, about three-quarters of a mjle from the dock of the Seawanhaka Corlnthlan Yacht club. When observed from the shore It was flying the absent flag, Indicating ordinarily that Its owner was not aboard. Nevertheless, he was there and In a few minutes entered a steam launch and was tnken ashore. One of the president's carriages was In wait ing for him. He was driven directly to Sagamore Hill, arriving there about 1 o'clock. Takes Luncheon with President. He remained for luncheon with President and Mrs. Roosevelt and for some time after. The suggestion was made that Mr. Morgan's visit and that of Secretary Shaw a little earlier might be more than a coin cidence, but it can be said authoritatively hat they had no relation at all with each other. Secretary Shaw and Mr. Morgnn did not meet and the purpose of their visits were entirely different. The president and Mr. Morgan discussed fully the Hankow railroad concession. This was not the first time the subJeSt had been considered by the president. Several months ago the question was taken up by the president and his cabinet and considered thoroughly. An effort Is being made by the Chinese government to purchase the concession from the American-China De-' velopment company, which owns the rail road and the contrlbutary concessions. The railroad now is In operation between Han kow and Canton, a distance of only about thirty miles, but the company, which la absolutely controlled by American capi talists, owns concessions and has made surveys for several hundred miles of rail road lines. China Wants to Buy Hoad. A proposition has been made by the Chi nese government to the American-China Development company to purchase the Han kow railroad and the extension concessions. It Is understood that the price offered is about $7,000,000. Some of the American holders of the stock are inclined to accept the proposal, but the European holders who have a minority of the stock insist that the road and Its concessions be not sold, but that they remain in control of the Americans. In behalf of the latter It Is argued that a railroad In the heart of China, operated by responsible and aggres sive American business men, In connection with the American steamship lines, would be of enormous advantage, not only to the American producers of all kinds, but to those of the civilized world generally. It Is said that King Leopold of Belgium, who owns some of the stock, takes this view of the situation and Is opposed to yielding to the proposition of the Chinese govern ment. A meeting of the board of direc tors of the Amerlcan-Cnina Development company Is to be held In Jersey City on the 29th Inst., and it Is expected that at that time a determination wjjl be reached as to the acceptance of China s offer. v No details of the conclusions reached at the conference between the president and Mr. Morgan are obtainable. No Information was obtainable as to whether they considered peace negotiations In relation to the flotation of a Russian loan in this country, in case the envoys should reach an agreement which should render it necessary for Russia to raise a consider able sum of money. Mr. Morgan at the conclusion of the con ference went immediately to the Corsair, which sailed about 4 o'clock. Baron Kaneko, the Jupanese financial ex pert, visited Sagamore Hill late this after noon by appointment for a conference with the -president. The precise nature of his l-mlsslon Is not disclosed, neither he nor the president caring to discuss It except ing in general and negative terms. Assur ance was given, both by the president and Baron Kaneko, that the visit had nothing to do with the pending peace negotiations or with the raising of money by a loan for either Japan or Russia.
