STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Sept. The
delegates of Norway and Sweden appointed
to discuss the dissolution of the union of
the countries will reassemble at Karlstad.
Sweden, September 13, and as It Is declared
here thati the Swedish conditions are
unalterable the outcome seems to depend
on the ; Norwegian acceptance of those
conditions. The tone adopted by the Nor
welglan newspapers this morning is very
threatening and 'It ' Is considered to be
specially significant, coming after yester
day's meeting of the Norwegian delegates.
It Is recognised that a breach may follow
the . reassembling of the delegates and the
Swedish authorities are preparing for such
Feeling- la Norway. '
CHRI3TIANIA. Norway, Sept. 12,-The

TIFLIS, Caucasia, Sept. 13. Many social
democrats were killed or wounded today
in a conflict with Cossacks at the town
hall and many were trampled to death In
a subsequent panic. Two thousand social
democrats had forced an entrance into the
town hall, which was closed owing to the
celebration of a religious holiday, the be
heading of John, the Baptist. Revolutionary
speeches were made and the chief of po
lice ordered the meeting to disperse.' Part
of those present obeyed, .but the remainder
refused and some revolvers were flred. A
large force of Cossacks drawn up outside
the building then fired a volley Into the'
crowd time And time again, killing thirty
and wounding upward of seventy. In the
ensuing panic many persons fell and were
trampled to death by their comrades and
the pursuing Cossacks. '
According to the official account the
crowd roughly handled the commissary of
police, whereupon the third company of
the Poltava regiment was summoned. The
commander of the company . ordered the
demonstrators to disperse, - promising not
to arrest them if they obeyed., Shots were
then flred on the Cossack. hotohly from

regret and .surprise. An Associated Press
representative has Interviewed on this sub
ject an old diplomat and statesman under
the old cabinet, whose name Is withheld
by request. He said:
Japan's youth and the lower classes are
peculiarly excitable. No case of rioting
passed without collateral issues which have
ho concern whatever .with the primary ob
ject of the rising.. The unfortunate oc
currences against the churches erd Ameri
can visitors la one of many similar in
stances. In a moment of excitement the
rioters are apt blindly to seek objects of
mischief, not considering whether their re
lation Is tangent with the first cause.
'Rioters have no power of discrimination
between foreigners of various nationali
ties." The unfortunate occurrence In re
gard to the American visitors was not a
deliberate insult to them as citlsens of the
United 8tates. Thev simply were made a
target bv a excited, crasy mob.

CONFERENCE OF LEADERS IS HELD
Mrlke at Onee Deemed Imminent
for While Over Employment
Of tho Ifon-lnlon
After a prolonged conference the com
mittee of they Typographical union and
Typothetae yesterday afternoon reached an
agreement that all differences should be
considered settled until October1 6, the limit
of the present contract.
The Typothetae held out for arbitra
tion of the question, maintaining
that the contract calls for such
a disposition of controversies. The
committee from the union responded that
the question Involved whether or not the
firm Is employing nonunion men la not
one proper for arbitration. In support of
this view the argument was voiced that
the union knows who are members of It
and that . any contradiction of this posi
tive knowledge was a thing not amenablo
to the Jurisdiction ot an arbitration board.
Both Bides Are Firm.
The conference did not lack In stormy
scenes, but both sides held firm. The
union's complaint was that two nonunion
men have been working at the Klopp A
Bartlett shop for some time and that
neither has complied with 'the rules of the
organisation, though given ample time
to do so. When they were put to work
they made application for admission, but
It is said one has not deposited the fees
as required and the other has not been
Notwithstanding the fact that a local
Issue seems to be raised by the trouble
at the Klopp & Bartlett office. It la reo
ognlxed by both aides that the controversy
Is merely a pretext to start the strife
Impending over the demand of the In
ternational union for an eight-hour day
Instead of nine hours as under .existing
contract. In retaliation the National Ty
pothetae declares that a nine-hour, day
will be enforced with an "open shop,"
subject to no union regulations.
Preparing; for Stroggle.
The Klopp A Bartlett Co. for weeks has
been preparing for the struggle by getting
nonunion men lined up to take the plact
of strikers when the actual trouble took
piece. Alleged violations ot the contract
have been winked at by the union, which
Vefused to be drawn . Into the fight pre
maturely. Now that the strike In Chicago
and Indianapolis Is under way and Presi
dent Lynch has sanctioned strikes all over
the country where contracts expiring before
January 1 are in force, if the demands of
the union are not complied -wit);, it Is be
lieved the time for action has arrived.

aunied, where it was broken off by adjourn
ment on Saturday, when K. D. Randolph,
treasurer of the New York Life Insurance
company, explained the transactions by
which the New Tork Life insurance dis

Mr. Randolph said that the sale of the
Chicago & Northwestern stock was
recorded in the books of the company and
that the New York Life Insurance coiripany
received $1,700,000, which wag deposited with
the New York Security and Trust company.
Regarding both the Chicago A. North

Mr. Randolph again on the stand, said
that 6,000 shares, of Union Paclflo railroad
preferred stock which was received as
bonus for underwriting, never appeared as
a ledger asset as It cost nothing. He said
that while the stocks objectional to Prussia
were ostensibly sold off, no such steps
were taken In regard to Union Pacific.
The Union Pacific stock, Mr. Randolph
said, was sold at different periods, from
U1 to 1904.
The question of syndicate' operations was
then taken up. Mr. Hughes drew Mr.
Randolph'a attention ' to the fact that
stocks received by the New York Life as a
bonus for underwriting were recorded In
the 'card Index as nonledger assets, while
bonds received for underwriting appeared
as an asset oh the ledger.' Mr.' Randolph
did not know why this was done.' He pre
sented Mr. Hughes with . a pamphlet-entitled
''Participation- In Syndicates' by .the
New York Life Insurance Company, for
Ten Years Past."
This was offered Jn evidence by Mr.
Hughes and was alleged to show that tho
New York Life had In that time niado no
syndicate transactions which had resulted
In a loss. These syndicate operations were
entered into and were being probed when a
recess for luncheon waa taken.
