PA Kiel. Aug 22.-A feeling of deep aollcl
tude prevails concerning 'he crisis at
Portsmouth, which officials expect will con
tinue for some days pending the last dea
perst efforts to sert a rupture. The
view In official quartcra to k a dlsoursg
Ing turn apparently as the result of con
fidential advices through official Kusrian
Tie Kourse today st first showed sur
prising buoyancy, Russian is opening at
an advame of '& centimes, but later dis
couraging advices from Portsmouth for
the first time dispelled the optimistic feel
ing of the market and caused a general
decline. Shortly before the close Kueslans
and other securities were heavily offered
and the closing was weak. This was In
marked contrast to the steady sentiment
of confidence heretofore prevailing. Finan
ciers continue hopeful that President
Koosevelt will find a way to prevent a
renewal of the war, but a continuance of
the war will not seriously affect the mar
ket, owing to the fa-t that Huesta ha
enough b lance In Paris from the last
loan to carry on operations for several
months. Nevertheleas the uncertainties
of the situation have produced a feeling
of nervous apprehension throughout offi
cial, financial and diplomatic quarters.
It Is seml-ofliclally announced that the
special Cabinet council to be held Thurs-i
day will he confined to topics concerning
Morocco and the fixing of tha date for
tha reassembling of Parliament. The
omission of any reference to the peace
negotiations Is omlnour'of a growing dis
position to hold aloof from profitless In
tervention. . . .
The prevailing view among officials is
that President Koosevelt, having Initiated
the movement, ahould cope with the dif
ficulties without outside Interference.
French Journalists at Portsmouth con
tinue to quote It. Wltte and other mem
bers of the Kusstan mission aa declaring
that a rupturs is Inevitable. Dispatches
from St. Petersburg reflect the same senti
ment. Nervosa la Usdos.
LONDON, Aug. 11. The Btock exchange
was Inactive today. While a majority of
the traders believe that a satisfactory set
tlement will result from the negotiations
at Portsmouth, a more pessimistic feeling
prevailed today and nervous holders real
ised, causing weakness. Consols led In the
Jupancee aeciirltlea were weak and
yielded to the selling pressure of pessi
mistic holders. Itusalans and other for

That the Oinnha Water comnanv ha
been systematl.ally defrauding the city for
years In charges for fire hydrants where
no water was available was the accusation
made by City Attorney Ureen In a speech
urging the council to override the mayor's
veto to a resolution rescinding a resolu.
tlon adopted in February authorizing the
confession of Judgment for hydrant bills
tor the last half of lis, im. tin.
The city attorney waa asked mint h,r,i.
by Councilmen Nicholson and Evans
wnetner the city owe the money.
it is my honest belief that It does not "
replied the attorney. -It has been discov
ered that a number of hydrants put in
have not been available for a drop of water
for the fire department. Not only this, but
that aome of them have been In Ihla cm.

paying for them Just the same. I want

"This water company haa gone out of Its

eented for water used for street flushing
at Hi cents per 1.0U0 gallons, when the
water company last spring, after we almoat
had to force them by means of the police
io lei us use their hydrant for the pur
pose, agreed to let us have the water at t
cents per 1,000 gallons.
I tell you that the people of this city
propose to purchase theae water worka
and they do not propose to be hampered
any longer. If the company will proceed
fairly and decently, aa a man ought to, we
will treat them equitably and right."
Mayor's Veto NustalneU.
Mayor Moore vetoed the rescinding reso
lution, declaring that If the amount waa
correct In February It "ought to be cor
rect now." He aald he thought the matter
waa 'part of the fight between the Water I
board and the water company," and he
thought aa long aa the tnutter la in court
they "ought to fight It out among them
Hoye was not present when the vote was
tsken, but all the other members except
Zlmman and O'Drlen voted to sustain the
veto and It was made fc-ood by five votes,
loiter on a plain resolution directing the
attorney to defend the suit aa he saw fit
was adopted. loiter Councilmen Dyhall and
t.vsna manifested a desire to go back on
the deal, but after Mr. Ureen bad spoken
aa above quoted they withdrew. As tha
matter rests, he suys, he Is left budly handi
capped In the case.
Home Other Vetoes.
It rained vetoes from the executive of
fice. The firm one was agalnt the allow-
nce of I.VXI aa expenae money for dele
gate to the Municipal league convention.
It wtia sustained. The mayor denounced
the appropriation aa a specie of graft
and said he did not approve of the use of
city funds for Junketing trips
Another veto was leveled against two gaa
lamps on Twenty-seventh street between
Farnam and Dodge which Councilman Nich
olson protested were old lamps In new
places that had been displaced by new arc
lamps. The mayor said he estimated the
lighting fund would be overdrawn KM at
tha end of the year and for this reason
cut off the expenditure. The council sus
tained tha veto, but Immediately took con
trary action on a veto against a new aro
lamp at Twenty-fifth and Pratt streets,
objected to for tha unit reasons. Then
authority waa given for another aro lamp
at Thirtieth and ICvans streets.
