ihan an hour. The Russian states
lunched with Baron von Rlchtofen,
ary of foreign affairs, the Russian
e d'affaires, M. Boulatzel, also being
nt. M. Wltte and Baron von Rlcht
afterwards conferred for some time.
ey had exchanged calls yesterday
nong those who saw M. Wltte at his
il, was ErnesT von Menelssohn-Bar-Idy,
whose house has been Russia's
iker here for a century. Herr Mendel
ssohn called as a friend and there is no rea-
so nto suppose that the question of a loan
was ever mentioned. Arthur Fischel, a
partner In the house, saw M. Wltte In Tarts
and It was reported that a loan was dis
cussed, but It was definitely stated that
such was not the case.
M. Wltte's comings and goings are
watched for at his hotel so continuously
that he used a private entrance on a back
street today. When he arrived at the rail
way station yesterday M. Wltte said to
the members of the Russian embassy staff
who met him that he preferred to walk to
his hotel. A great crowd had assembled
In front of the hotel expecting to see him
arrive In a carriage, and he and his party
made their way quietly through the crowded
Unter den Linden and Into the hotel with
out their presence being noted. M. Wltto
Inquired of the hotel manager what caused
"The people are waiting to see your ex
cellency.' the manager replied.
"Then let me get to my rooms as quickly
as possible." said M. Wltte.
The future of M. Wltte is the subject of
much talk among his friends, to whom ho
says he Intends after having aided In the
settlement of the questions Immediately
concerned with the peace negotiations to
ask Emperor Nicholas' leave to retire from
public service. What the Russian emper
or's reply will be no one of course knows,
but one of M. Wltte's friends said to him
that Emperor Nicholas would probably say
that as a patriotic cltlxen his duty was to
remain In public life and give the country
the benefit of his prestige abroad.
CENSURE FOR THE KING
Executive Committee of Hungarian
Coalition Passes Resolutions
BUDAPEST. Hungary, Sept. 25.-The ex
ecutive committee of the coalition parties
summoned to discuss the situation arising
from the ultimatum presented to the Hun
garian leaders by the klng-emperor has
passed what amounts to a severe vote of
censure of his majesty and his advisers.
The committee In the resolution expresses
the deepest regret that the klng-emperor
did not listen to the statesmen summoned
by him to Vienna, who represent the ma
jority in the Hungarian Parliament and
constitute therefore the leaders of the na
tion in Its public affairs.
The commute further Indignantly cen
sures those who advised his majesty to take
such a course and approves the action of
the coalition leaders In refusing to nego
tiate with Count Golouchowskl and In de
clining the memorandum presented by the
klng-emperor as a violation of the consti
tution and unsuitable for he settlement of
the present constitutional conflict.
The executive committee of the coalition
parties In the Hungarian Diet decided today
to summon a general conference of all tho
parties forming the coalition October 3, for
the purpose of arriving at a common agree
ment on the answer to be made to the
conditions Imposed by the klng-emperor.
The committee also decided to Invite to
the conference all deputies outside the
coalition who desire to participate In the
defense of the constitution.
About 1,000 persona gathered outside the
Independence club tonight and gave a
great ovation to the coalition leaders.
Francis Kossuth and Count Albert Apponyl
made speeches. In which they exhorted the
people to be prudent, impressing upon them
that the struggle must be fought within
the limits of the law. The socialists at
tempted to interrupt the speakers and
made a free fight, which necessitated the
Interference of the police.

situation await the arrival of Judge W. J.

Judge Calhoun and M. Talgny have gone
over the case of the French Cable com
pany and the officials here are not dis
posed to proceed against Venezuela or
any southern republic until after the full
est conference with the United States,
owing to the privileged position of the
United States toward South and Central
America. At the same time it is held that
this prrvil-sged position entails the co
operation of the United States toward re
quiring Venezuela to observe the usual
obligations to other powers.

makes the sixth charge now pending against
him, the others Including participation In
the burning of the city hall at Vueltas.
Colonel Ferrara Is. an Italian, but he is a
veteran of the last Cuban war and one
of the most prominent lawyers in Havana.
Today's mail brought to the liberals the
first report from their adherents In Clen

resulted In the killing or Congressman
Enrique Vllluendas and Chief of Police

former accounts, except that it lays on the
moderates the blame for starting the dis
turbances. Additional reports from Clenfuegos re
ceived by the government say that the
chief leaders in the alleged dynamite plot
were two Italian anarchists named Hum
berto Brunt Bove and Julio Orau, who
have been making seditious speeches there
and elsewhere for some time.

rate," declared A. B. Stickney, president

day regarding freight rates on live stock
and live stock products from the Missouri
river to Chicago. In answer to a question
as to how the charges were made President
"In fixing the rate of dressed meat we
do not have very much to say. The
packer generally makes the rate. He cornea
to you and always makes you feel that he
Is your friend. Then he asks you bow
much you charge for certain shipments of
dressed meats. The published tariff may be
23 cents per 100, but be will not pay
that. Tou say to him: 'I will carry your
meat for 18 cents.' He says: 'Oh, no,
you won't. I won't pay that.' Then you
say: "Well, what will you pay for It?'
He then replies: 'I can get It for It
cents.' So you haul it for 18 cents per
100. He generally tells you that If you
want the business you must haul the creat
for the price he names." -
President Stickney denied that his road
had paid any claims for t'atnagea or re

The decision to liquidate was reached fol

clearing houne banks. A thorough Investi
gation of the accounts of the bank had
been made, a carefully prepared statement
of the resources and liabilities, checked in
every detail and the collaterals held for
loans appraised by financial experts. This
was done at the request of the bank's offi
cials, who were seeking a wsy to close tha
bank without placing In Jeopardy one dol
lar of the depositors' money. Ever since
the failure of the Salmon ft Salmon bank at
Clnlton, Mo., the bank's business had been
on a decline. Many large depositors with
drew their accounts because of the fact
that the bank had advanced the Salmons
more than $3X1.000 on collateral that is now
said by bankers to be gilt-edged. At the
time the value of the collateral was prob
lematical and timid depositors hastened to
close their accounts. This rsuaed a heavy
drain on the resources of the bank, and in
order to avert trouble the officers of the
Institution decided upon liquidation as the
easiest way out of a perplexing flnanciul
