To the suggestion that American public

Among the dulegates of the respective

was insisted that each side was sincerely
anxious to conclude a treaty of peace, and
it la evident if there was a rupture, as the
best Informed believe there will be1, each
side will maneuver to place the rtsponsi

disposed to throw out the Intimation that
M. Wltte Is trying to wear out his adver

negotiations. This Intimation Is Indignantly
repudiated by the Russians, who contend,

No Ilattle Dorlnft Negotiations.
It seems to be taken for granted among
the attaches of both the Japanese and Rus
sian missions that there will be no general
battle in Manchuria while the peace nego
tiations are on. Oyama Is known to be
prepared to strike the moment the negotia
tions end and there may be more or less
skirmishing and outpost engagements while
the troops are getting In position, but It Is
admitted on each sWe that If either Oyama
or l.lnevltch should deliberately bring on a
general engagement which might cost 60,000
or luO.Oofl lives his country would be accused
of bad faith in the negotiations here and
would Inevitably lose prestige In tho eyes
of the world. In the larger sense, there

already exists In Manchuria. Should the
negotiations be vainly prolonged and It
became evident that they were to be fruit

WASHINGTON, Aug. 14 -The Star to
night says: "There has been a big shake
up among the revenue agents of the in
ternal revenue service, but Just how far
it has gone Is a matter tf speculation. It
Is stated, however, that four well known
revenue agents have been asked for their
resignations, and at least two of the four
have come here for a personal conference
with Commlsslontr Yerkes of the Internal
revenue bureau. These are Captain Charles
11. Ingram, in change of New Kngland
work, stationed at Boston, and C. H. Burg,
whij has hafl a section of the southwest
under his charge and has been located In
Texas. The names of the other two agents
could not be learned today.
"Commissioner Yerkes would not discuss
the matter. Those In a position to know
say that Commissioner Yerkes had per
sonally been watching the work of the
revenue agents, who are really the secret
Investigating officials of the revenue bu
reau, and has concluded that some of them
have not been doing their duty In de
tecting some of the things going on."
Forehtn Crop Reports.
The foreign crop report to the depart
ment of agriculture made public today
announces that "In countries of largest
production the crops of the principal bread
grains cannot be called abundant, but on
a generul survey of the field It seems
probable that the harvest of 1906 will not
on the whole be a bad one."
In Great Britain and Jreland the area
under wheat Is estimated at l.Rno.ono acres
and the yield at 63,000.000 bushels or 33
bushels to the acre, against an area last
year of 1.400.0HO acres and a yield of 39.000,000
bushels or less than 28 bushels per acre.
The area under wheat In Manitoba and
the Northwest territory Is fully 10 per
cent better than ever before. The area
Is placed at 4,000,000 acres and the crop at
70,000.000 or 80,000,000 and by some as high as
In Argentina the area of winter grain
appears larger than last year.
In Australia the outlook Is more promis

Despite unfavorable weather reports the
outlook In Germany last month seemed
In Russia the crop prospects remained
generally satisfactory, the winter cereals
promising nearly, and the spring cereals
above, an average yield.
In Austria It is not yet certain whether
winter wheat and winter rye can be set
down as good average crops.
In Hungary the prospect was consider
ably worse than In June, but the total grain
crop promised to, be larger than last year.
Although there was a large proportion of,

growing regions In northern France, the

Must I se More Airbrakes.
The . Interstate Commerce commission Is
about to take steps to require all railroads
engaged In Interstate commerce to increase
the minimum percentage of air brakes used
on freight trains to as great an extent as
conditions of equipment will permit.
The commission has become Impressed
with the danger attending the operation of
freight trains on which an Insufficient num
ber of cars are equipped with air brakes,
operated by the engineer.
Recent accidents involving loss of life
and property, caused by the "buckling" of
freight trains the rear cars crowding for
ward upon those In front when emergency
applications of air have , been made on
trains partially air-braked, have demon
strated that suoh trains are not actually
under the control, of the engineer as re
quired by law. As the Impact which causes
"buckling" Is due to the presence of un
braked cars In the rear of the train, it ap
pears to the commission that such acci
dents may be obviated by requiring a num
ber of cars In trains greater than the 60
per cent low required by law, to have
their brakes operated by the engineer. In
crease in the minimum Is authorized ty
law. It Is added that the evident purpose
of the law Is to ultimately require the use
of air brakes on all cars of all freight

are dally witnessed In the charity restau

arrangements are made lo feed any who
come whether It Is during the regular
meal time or not. It Is estimated that the
restaurant Is now feeding 1,000 people a day.
Ordinarily, the Italian Is thrifty and per

his family, but practically complete diver

has thrown hundreds of the race out of
work and they are compelled to depend

Government Must Provide for labor

NEW TORK, Aug. 14 The care of 20,000
employes to work upon the Panama canal
was declared by Chairman Shonts of the
Panama Canal commission, who arrived on
the steamer Mexico today from Colon, to
be of first importance and to have prece
dence over the actual work of digging.
Chairman Shonts was accompanied on his
return by Colonel Oswald H. Ernst, also of
the canal commission. Chairman Shonts
"We went to Colon With Mr. Stevens, the
chief engineer, to see what had been done
and what should be done. We found the
first thing of Importance to be housing and
supplying 20,000 men. When our govern
ment first took hoM of. the canal every
effort was directed toward making the dirt
fly. I think' this was a necessity. The peo
ple of the Isthmus are not forehanded and.
with the large addition to the population
caused by the influx of the canal laborers,
the supplies for Hvrng were exhausted.
This caused the prices to rise and soon the
laboring class found that they could not
earn enough to support themselves. To
offset this subcommlsstonary stations were
established to feed ''the laborers. T made
an arrangement with the president that
unless prices became normal on he isth
mus to continue this system of supplying
At Colon a larga refrigerating plant Is
now being established from which all sup
plies will be Issued lyomptly, so that
shortly alt American employes will be able
to obtain the same- fare as they would at
home. 'Of course I found the freight con
gestion causing considerable trouble, but
soon found that by applying those practical
up-to-date railroad methods of the United
States, that In thirty days the trouble
would be eliminated. There Is about 6. 000
tons on hand now. This freight was or
dered by the old commission, to be deliv
ered at certain Intervals. We, however,
took the matter up and urged prompt ship
ment, with the result that it all got to the
terminal point at once.
"As to double tracking the railroad, that
cannot be done at present, even If neces
sary, but is the work of getting out the
dirt progresses, we can easily keep up with
the work with extra trackage. We have
supplied refrigerating cars for the road.
"There are about 10,000 employes on the
Isthmus now, Including the laborers."
Mr. Shonts said that there was In reality
no yellow fever scare to speak of at the
Isthmus and that the total number of cases
In Panama during August ur to the time
of his sailing was only thirty.

has been the engineer In charge of the

which are up for Inspection.
Perhaps the most striking booth In the
whole building Is the Advo electric kitchen,
which the McCord-Brady company has
fitted up. Biscuits and bread and assorted
cakes are baked In full view of all and
samples of the toothsome foods are given
niseatts While Yon Walt.

of the city, has a very good exhibition of
pure water as well as a large sample of
their artificial ice.
D. J. O'Brien has some of his candles

which takes very well.
There are many more things which are

large crowds each night during the demon

OFFICIALS FEARED ASSAULT
Sent President Over I nuaual Rout
After HearlasT of riot lo
NEW YORK. Aug. 14-That Erie railroad
officials were alarmed for the safety of
President Roosevelt on his way from Chau
tauqua to Jersey City on Saturday Is
shown by ths fact, made known yester
day, that the president's car did not come
over the main' line. Instead, the Chautau
qua special was broken in two at Suffern,
N. and the presidential party was
brought In by a roundabout way over ths
two small branch roads. .
President Roosevelt is said to have ob
jected to the unusual precautions taken,
but acquiesced when positive orders from
President Underwood of the Erie were
shown him. These orders were Issued as
a result of a letter received by the Pater
son police, which said there was a plot to
blow up the president's train near Ridge
wood, N. J.
The Chautauqua special was stopped at
Suffern early Saturday morning. There
was a consultation over the telephone, fol
lowed by a consultation of railroad men,
at which It was decided to send the prsl
dent to. Sparklll. a small town on the Hud
son, three miles below Nlaek. by a little
single track road, known as the Plermont
branch, and thence Into Jersey City on the
Northern railroad, a branch having ls ter
minus In Nlack.
President Roosevelt was awakened and
told of the change In the schedule, as the
officials did not like to take the responsi
bility without his consent. The president
after some discussion saM that he was
"in the hands of the Krle." and while he
had no fear of his train being wrecked on
the main line, he would do what the rail
road men thought best.
Slow tlm was made over the Plermont
branch and Northern branch and extra
men guarded every part of both roads.
