guests saw that this, magic scene was cov
ered by Old Glory. , From' the main deck,
rising high Itf the center of the boat deck,
shone the stars of the original . thirteen
states, made of little electric lights on a
field of blue bunting. From this central
point were draped red and white stripes of
this mammoth American flag. Beneath this
firmament of tho Stars and Stripes stretched
the polished ballroom floor, built across the
entire boat deck and extending aft to the
last of the Drake's four funnels, affording I
room for more than 30 couples. Rising from
the floor to meet the canopied roof were
walls of bunting and ship's flags. At reg
ular Intervals around the walls were Amer
ican and British flags, draped fan-ahape,
and In between were round framed mirrors.
Theae mirrors were really the reflection of
the ship's powerful searchlights framed In
Inflated life buoys. A diver's uniform In
flated, stood at the, end of the deck holding
a basket of dance cards on the extended
l.lat ot fl nests.

that powerful influence at Albany would
be invoked In retaliatory measures. Mr.
Harriman suggested as one of these meas
ures the revocation of the charter of the
Mercantile Trust company. Mr. Hyde knew
of no actual steps that were taken nor of
any bill that was Introduced, but he was
beset with rumors that such steps were
about to he taken by legislation. The
Equitable Life lie said was not interested
beyond the connection it had with the Mer
cantile Trust company.
Mr. Hyde waa under the Impression that
the Mercantile In settlement retained the
bonds and paid Mr. Odell about $75,000. The
original claim of Odell was about $180,000.
The bonds subsequently netted about 60
cents on the dollar. Mr. Hyde said Mr.
Harriman suggested the settlement of the
suit and the counsel and executive mem
bers of the Mercantile Trust company ad
vised It and he recommended it.
Charges Against Har-laiss.
, Charges of conspiracy to get him out
of the country were made by Mr. Hyde
against Henry C. Frlck and E. It. Harri
man, In connection with the reported as
pirations of Mr. Hyde to become ambas
sador to France. He said Mr. Frick In
spired the idea and witness took It as a
Joke at first, but when Mr. Frlck brought
It up later Mr. Hyde was flattered and both
Mr. Harriman and Mr. Frlck promised to
use their Influence to secure thiJ appoint
ment. Again Mr. Hyde waxed bitter In
his explanation of the extraordinary inter
est these gentlemen exhibited In his ab
sence from the country. Ha said he
thought their Idea was "that they would
' themselves of their friendly
I stewardship with great profit to them-
selves." and added that the nature of their
Interest had since become obvious.
Bitter Toward Frlck.
Mr. Hyde charged Mr. Frick with breach
of faith in leading him to believe that the
Frlck committee was "friendly" to him
and with doing all he could to dissuade
witness from selling his stock "at. the same
time," as Mr. Hyde said, "doing everything
on that committee he could to knife me
and destroy the value of that stock."
Mr. Hyde explained that he used "friend
ly" In the Just sense of the word, and that
If there was anything for which he could
be criticised he waa willing to take what
ever criticism came. Mr. Hyde said he did
not think the report waa ut all fair and
that the committee posed as his friends,
while he was being attacked on the other
side by Mr. Alexander and his friends under
the sham of inutuallxatlon.
Mr. Harriman. he said, asked him to give
the adoption of the Frlck report at the
meeting of the board, but Mr. Hyde said
he absolutely declined, as it waa con
demnatory of everything that had ever
transpired In the society and he was ad
vised by counsel that such a step would
throw the Equitable Life Into the hands of
Mr. Hyde was excused until tomorrow,
when his examination will be resumed.

SERIOUS RIOTING IN VLADIVOSTOK
State of Meae Has lleea Proclaimed
and Jfm . Demoralises St.
ST. PETERSBURG. Nov. 13. In view of
the condemnation to death of many of the
sailor who mutinied at Cronstadt, the de
lay In carrying out the reforms outlined
In the Imperial manifesto, the proclama
tion of martial law In Poland and other re
pressive acts, the, council of workmen's
delegates hare decided to proclaim a gen
eral strike throughout Russia today.
A state of war has been declared In
Vladivostok. Private advices say that the
. ninese quarters ens oeen aesiroyea ana
t ... ..... , ' ,
'that the s tuat on la now under control.
In spite of the complete embargo placed
on all telegrams from Vladivostok the news
of the outbreak there leaked out of the
Navy and War departments and became
generally known throughout the city. Few
details were available to the general public
and the city was filled with the wildest
rumors as to what was occurring In the
eastern fortress. One report circulated on
the Bourse today had the entire garrison
and the sailori of all the ships in the har
bor In emeute. This, following on the heels
f the mutiny at Cronstadt, contributed to
the demoralisation of the exchange.
While the Information received by the
Associated Press goes to show that, though
order was today partly restored, a large
part of the garrison stood Arm and the crisis
has not been passed. Fears are expressed
in admiralty and general staff circles that
mob violence has flared out again and that
this will necessitate a further resort to
armed force. Martial law has been pro
claimed and the authorities are conlldent
of their ability to stamp out any disorders.
Tsar Stays From Capital.
Emperor Nicholas and the Russian court
will riot come to St. Petersburg this winter.
A short time ago It was announced that the
emperor was about to return to the Winter
palace. In an annex of which Count Wltte
has Installed himself, but his majesty has
now decided to go from Peterhof back to
Tsarskoe Selo, where he has been living
for almost two years with the exception of
the last months spent at Petershof. Except
on the occasion of the ceremony of blessing
the waters last January, when the emperor
narrowly escaped death, owing to a mys
terious charge of grapeshot being fired In
the direction of the Imperial party by a sa
luting battery, the emperor has not stepped
inside the winter palace for over eighteen
His decision not to come to the capital Is
regarded as unfortunate, not only for its
moral effect, but because It keeps him sur
rounded by court Influences and out of
close. Immediate touch with Count Wltte,
who at the present time should have daily,
almost hourly conference with the rm
peror. Members of his majesty's entourage
have strongly advised against the emperor
being In St.- Petersburg when the national
assembly meets, as well as on account of
the danger of popular disorders at the capl
tol this winter, recalling to the emperor's
mind, not without effect, the fatal results
of Louis XVI, agreeing to leave Versailles
and place himself at the mercy of the popu
luce of parts In 1760.
Poles Are Hnsy.
The Polish delegation here Is working
hard to secure the co-operation of the lib
erals, social democrats and workmen's or
ganisation In another general political
trike In aid of .th'a Po)es' battle for auton-
omy, but thus far. while they have met
with much sympathy, no action has been
taken for their assistance. Count Wltte,
whom the deputation saw, was extremely
Arm, declaring emphatically that the gov
ernment would do nothing for Poland under
compulsion and that martial law could not '
be abolished until the separatist movement
ceases. The premier declared the most the
Poles could expect In addition to the rights
granted under tho reform manifesto was a
separate general xemstvo for Poland and
municipal self-government. The Polish del
egates say that over 7,000 Polish prisoners
are languishing In the Jails of Warsaw.
The radical press today Is not sparing In
this denunciation of the government's ac-
) ton In putting all Poland under martial lw,
i declaring that It Is a plain violation of the
splrlt of the reform manfesto,
It Is evident that the government has re
covered Its nerve and is determined to use
severe measures it necessary to restore
order. The agitation throughout the coun
try at the exceptional powers conferred on
the aides-de-camp of the emperor, who
were dispatched to the central provinces,
where agragrlan ' disorders are spreading
is proof of this.
Weak Gorernors Removed.
At the same time half a dosen governors.
Including the governors of Odessa, Tomsk
and Kazan, who signally failed to prevent
disorders, have been summarily dismissed
at Count Wltte's Instigation. The clergy
with other classes, continue their Inter
cessions for the Cronstadt mutineers, 151
of whom are reported to have been con
demned to death. A hundred orthodox
priests, at a meeting held at the residence
of the Metropolitan Antonius, formulated

Foreign ofllce was called today to the be

ment exists whereby Germany and Austria
would assist Russia If It became necessary
to suppress a movement for Polish auton
omy. The Foreign office says nothing of
the kind has occurred and that nothing of
that nature will occur. Emperor William
has had no communication on the subject
with Emperor Nicholas or the Russian gov

Germany Is concerned does not exist ou.

Poles rise up and the movement for Polish

ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 14-Count Wltte
today received from the Warsaw commlt-
Je" of e "octal democracy of Poland and
Lithuania an Indignant telegraphic denial
of the charge that the present movement
In Poland Is designed to secure separation.
The dlnpatch said:
"The official note Justifying the procla
mation of martial law In Poland as osten-
";,.yor the PurP8e ' frustrating a sepa-
...t .,,i,viiir-iii is tx criminal maneuver
or the government Intended to divide the
Polish from the Russian revolutionary
movement. We call attention to the fact
that the authorities having drowned our
revolutionary processions In blood and hav
ing allowed full freedom to other Polish
demonstrations at which the White Eagle
were displayed and where Slenklowlcz and
other orators pledged with the workmen :
to return to their shops and restore peace, j
We affirm that the revolutionary Polish
proletariat, .together with the revolutionary
Russian proletariat, seek common freedom
and not separation. " .
The Poles here also deny that they de

ROOT WORKING ON TARIFF
Secretary of Stat Gives Karnes t
Attention to t.rrman
WASHINGTON. Nov. 14 -Secretary Root
Is giving earnest attention to the tariff
relations between Germany and the I'nlted
States. The secretary hopes to have some
concrete proposition to submit to congress
during the approaching session, but It Is
evident that it cannot be presented before
the next calendar year, as a number of
conferences will be. necessary before the
executive branch and Individual legislators
as a preliminary to the execution of Secre
tary Root's plan to submit only sucli a
treaty or proposal as Is reasonably certain
to secure the approval of at least a major
ity In congress or perhaps a two-thirds
vote In the senate.
It Is probable that an attempt will be
made immediately to reach a tin dua vlvendl
or provisional arrangement which shall pre
vent 'an open rupture or tariff war between
the two nations pending the conclusion of
negotiations for a new treaty.
"SQUARE DEAL" FOR CLAIMANTS
Motto of President Taken by Men
Having, Bills Asalaat
I nele Sam.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 14.-The words of
the president, "square deal." are being
worked vigorously by many persona who
have old claims or requests upon the gov
ernment. Many of the cases, which ara
known In the departments as "old slugs,"
because of the many times they have been
considered and rejected, have again been
presented with a demand for a "square
deal." An officer of the army to whom
all such cases in the War department are
referrred for report, says that all these
claims for reinstatement In the service or
for advanced retired rank, or claims for
property taken, all of which have hereto
fore been passed UKn and decided ad'
versely t the claimant, set out that what
they ask now Is a "square deal." and many
of them Insist that their requests be pte-
aented to the president.

With most of the general statements that
you innde nsrre. hut I am not sure that
1 agree with -your application of them.
Tilde has liecn eomptrHtlvelv Utile com
plaint to me of the railroad rates being
ai a whole too high. The most serious
complaints that linve lieen made to me
hive Ixen of Improper discrimination In
railroad rates. r Instance. In two re
cent r affecting great corporations the
complaints that have leen made to me
have hern that they are too low as re
gards certain big snippers; the complaint
in both these cases Is about the differential,
the difference of treatment of two sets of
users of the railroads, the difference In
favor of one jet f shljpcrs as against nn
oth"r set of shtp;ors. Whether this Is Just
or not I ant not prepared to say. I very
deeply appreciate and sympathise with the
feeling you express hs to the comtmmltv
of Interest between the man who actuallv
does the handling of the trains, at the
brakes. In the engine cab, as a flreman, as
the conductor and the man who has to do
as a capitalist or as the higher employe
of the cupitallst. with the general man
agement of the road. I feel that one of
the rsons that cannot be over Inculcated
Is the lesson of Interest among our people
as a whole. I do not have to tell a boiiv
like this something that I do have to teil
some other bodies, and that Is If von have
not got at the head of a railroad a man
who can make a success of It, the wage
workers on thut railroad cannot prosper.
Railways Mast Be Regulated.
If you will look at my Raleigh speech and
my other recent utterances you will see mv
principles clearly set forth. I have said
acaln and aynln tlvt 1 would not tolerate
for one moment any Injustice to a railrond,
any more thnn I would tolerate anv Injus
tice by a railroad. I have said again and
again that 1 would remove a public official
who improperly yielded to anv public
clamor against a railroad, no matter how
popular that clamor might be. Just as
quickly as I would remove a public official
who rendered an Improper service to the
railroad at ttut expense of the public But I
am convinced that there must be an In
creased rcgulatorv and supervisory power
exercised by the government over the rail
ways. Indeed. I would like It exercised to a
much greater ettent than I have any Idea
of pressing at the moment. For Instance,
1 would greatly like to have It exercised In
the matter of overcapitalization. I am con
vinced that the "wage fund'' would be
larger if there was no fictitious capital
upon which dividends had to be paid. I
need hardly say that this does not mean
hostility to wealth. If you gentlemen here,
in whom I believe so strongly, were all a
unit In demanding that some Improper ac
tion should he taken against certain men of
wealth, then, no matter whether I did or
did not like those same men of wealth, I
would defend them against yot,, no matter
how much I cared for you: and In so doing
I would really be acting In your own Inter
eat. 1 would be false to your Interests If I
failed to do Justice to the capitalist as much
as to the wage-worker. Hut I shall uct
aaalnst the abuses of wealth Just as
against all other abuses. The outcry against
rate regulation Is of much the same charac
ter as that I encountered when I waa en
gaged in putting through that car coupling
business, or in endeavoring to seenre cer
tain legislation in which you all have been
interested, such as the employers' liability
Square Deal for All.
Most certainly 1 will join with you in re
sisting to the utmost any movement to hurt
or damage any railroads which act de
cently, for I would hold that such damage
was not merely to the capitalist, not merely
to the wageworker engaged on the rail
roads, but to all the country. My aim Is
to secure the Just and equal treatment of
the public by those 1 1 trust and believe u
limited number) who do not want to give It,
Just as much as by the larger number who
do want to give it. All I want in any rate
legislation Is to give the government an effi
cient supervisory power which shall lie ex
ercised as scrupulously to prevent Injustice
to the railroads as to prevent their doing
injustice to the nubile. Our endeavor is to
see that those big railroad men and big
shippers, who are not responsive to the de
mands of Justice, are required to do what
their fellows who are responsive to the de
mands of Justice would he glad to do of
their own accord.

LITTLE BOY ONE

Suffering from Raw' Itching

WONDERFUL CURE BY
" My little son, a boy of five, broke
out with an itching rah. Three doc
tors prescribed for him, but he kept
getting worse ipatil we could not dress
him any more. They finally advised
me to try a certain medical College,
but its treatment did no good. At the
time I was induced to try Cuticura
he was so bad that I had to cut his
hair off and put the Cuticura Ointment
on him on bandages, an it was impos
sible to touch him with the bare hand.
There waa not one square inch of skin
on his whole body that was not affected.
He was one ma of sores. The band
ages used to stick to his tkin and in
removing them it used to take the skin
off with them, and the screams from
the poor child were heart-breaking. I
began to think that he would never get
well, but after the second application
of Cuticura Ointment I legan Ut see
signs of improvement, and with the
third and fourth applications the sores
commenced to dry up. His ekin jn-eled
off twenty times, but it finally yielded
to the treatment. Now 1 can say that
he is entirely cured, and a stronger and
healthier bov you never saw than he is
to-day. Robert Wattam. 41W2 Center

" Your letter of the 21t ai regard to
