' Crisis Comes In Five Days.
NEW YORK. Au 7. 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 situation. General Per
rilllatt arrived here - from the south last
"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

that caused all the trouble. I( there Is

Geora-e A. Masrney, for Socialists,
Plans Mode of Attack of
Dodge Act.
Attorney Oeorgo A. 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..

Report that Railways and Operator! Will
Ee Aiktd to Arbitrate.
Dispatches from Points In IVorth
Dakota and Montana Say Traffic
Is Seriously Inter
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.
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.

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

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.
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.
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

will be handled from the Cleveland head

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 &
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
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
