Soltellaae la pre ace. 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 sohrces. 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 decline. Jupancee aeciirltlea were weak and yielded to the selling pressure of pessi mistic holders. Itusalans and other for eign securities were dull In sympathy with Paris.

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. H,717. 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. dition for yeara, but the city lias been paying for them Just the same. I want tills original resolution reacinded so I can contest tha case In the federal court with out any handicap. About Meter Hatea, "This water company haa gone out of Its way to haras and embarrass the cltv and particularly In preventing the aeoulrement of tha water works system. It attempted 1 ro compel consumers to put In meter boxes at the curb line when a danger appeared mat ine meter rate would be reduced, this so the water would be aold on the flat rate plan. We have Just had a bill ore. 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 selves." 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. Western laloa's Franchise.
