Is Arthur Keene. He lives with his mother

forced food down his throat, but It made
him 111 at once and he asked for milk.
His diet each week constats of thirty pints
of milk mixed with sugar and water, which

even a 12-months-old Infant.
Yet In spite of this scanty and monot

WASHINGTON, July 21. - Baron Rio
Branco, tne Brazilian minister for foreign
affairs, advised the Brailllan , charge In
this city, Mr. Gurgel de Amarali by cable
today that the third pan-American coher
ence at Rio Janeiro will be formally opened
at S o'clock Monday evening, July 23. The
opening was to have been today, but be
cause of the lateness of the steamer Byron,
which carried the American delegation and
the representatives of a number of other
countries. It is assumed that the delay of
two days was thought necessary.
In his dispatch to the embassy In this
city Baron Rio Branco said great prepara
tions are being made for the reception of
Secretary Root, who is expected Jn Rio
Janeiro on July' 2B. Several thousands of
Brailllan students will lead the demonstra
tion In honor of the American secretary of
state. The president's palace In Petropolls,
the summer capltol In the mountains near
Rio Janeiro, will be at Mr. Root's dis
posal and while In Rio Janeiro he will be
entertained In the famous Abrantee palace,
which is the most historic building In the
republic. It belonged to Joao VI of Por
tugal, before the Independence ot Brazil
and waa occupied by Dom Pedro VI, em
peror of Brazil.
State department officials and members
of the diplomatic corps who are still In
Washington expressed pleasure today at
the delay ln(the opening of the pan-American
conference as the full conditions of
the peace agreement in Central America
are now fully known and the Rio confer
ence will open with absolute peace prevail
ing throughout this continent. .
Important Subjects on Program.
The third Panamerican conference opens
under the most promising auspices, with
the purpose of considering a program
fully equal In Importance to that which was
laid before any ot the preceding gatherings.
Injected Into this program, after It bad
been practically completed at a preliminary
meeting of an international committee held
in Washington last winter, waa one article
Iv that la perhaps likely to give rise "to
more controversy and excite more feeling
and be generally of greater importance than
ay.WAftt luu... Tli A, gwcjy;u-lhe. In
teresting Drago doctrine, itself an out
growth of Dr. Calvo's famous dictum, in
volving the right of a nation to use force
In the collection from other nations of pub
lie debts. In the program this takes tha
form of the proposition to allow The Hague
conference to determine this Important
question, and as many of the South Ameri
can debtor nations are bitterly opposed to
allowing the creditor nations of Europe to
p tss upon this vital doctrine, a bitter dis
cussion Is expected when the subject comes
before the third conference.
Reorganization of the Bureau ot Ameri
can Republics so as to greatly enlarge the
usefulness of that institution Is the very
first article ot the program. It Is pro
posed to erect a magnificent building In
Washington tor Its accommodation, to
open a commercial museum in connection
therewith, and, a suggestion based largely
upon Latin-American suspicion, to limit
the life ot the bureau to a ten-year period.
Arbitration of Dlapntee.
A strong effort is to be made to bring
about unanimous action of the American
republic to agree to settle by arbitration
c 11 future disputes arising between them
and to endeavor to have the approaching
Hague conference apply this principle gen
erally to the nations of the world. The
United States and several other American
republics were signatories to a treaty pro
viding for the arbitration of pecuniary
clalma alone. This was an outgrowth of
the Mexican conference and promises well.
so the Rio' conference is to be asked to
extend Its operations for another five-year
An almost Impossible task is to be set for
a committee of Jurists of high repute, who
are charged with the duty of drafting "a
code of public International law and pri
vate international law," for this la by no
means an exact science at the present mo
ment and the greatest variance exists be
tween the different schools ot International
lawyers. Still It Is hoped that If the com
plete code cannot be secured, at least agree
ment may be had upqn aome useful princi
ples of international law.
The conference is to endeavor to limit the
period It la suggested to two years
within which a naturalised citizen may re
main in the country of his nativity without
forfeiting his naturalization. Latin-America
has alwaya been Jealous of these re
turned citizens and they have given the
United Statee much trouble, so that the
subject Is even now being considered by a
special board, meeting at the State depart
ment In Washington.
Development of commercial Intercourse
between the American republics engaged
the attention of the first and second con
ferences and was left as a legacy to this
meeting. It will endeavor to Increase rapid
communication by additional cable and
telegraph lines and fast mall lines; new
commerclsl treaties are to be proposed and
commercial and Industrial statistics are to
be freely exchanged.
Sanitation and Health.
An effort is to be made to bring lnV unl
formlty the customs and consular laws; en
effort la to be made to secure uniform
patent and trade-mark and copyright lawa,
and the Panamerican project is to be

alon of Tnurlde Palace Talk
of Attempt to Continue
ST. PETERSBURG. July 13.-Russi'e
first experiment in parliamentary govern
ment came to an Ignominious end tonight
with the promulgation ef two Imperial
ukases, the first dissolving , the present
Parliament and providing for the convo
cation of its successor on March 6. 1S07,
more than six months hence, and the sec
ond proclaiming the capital of Russia and
the surrounding province to be in a state
of extraordinary security, which la only
Infinltealmally different from full martial
law. This measure of safety Is to pro
vide for the outbursts which undoubtedly
will be provoked by this daring measure.
It la now but a step to dictatorship.
Tha texts of the two ukaees, both of
which are addressed In the stereotyped
form to the ruling Senate, are aa follows:
According to paragraph 106 of the funda
mental law we order the Imperial Parlia
ment dissolved and fix the time for the
convocation of the newly elected Parliament
lor Marcn e, twr,.
Regarding the time for the new elections
to the Imperial Parliament we will later
Issue special Indications.
Tne ruling rienate win not ran to tune
proper measures to place this Into effect.
Peterhof, July 21.
The text of the second ukase follows:
In consideration if a report of the coun
cil of ministers presented to us regarding
the necessity in the future for the preserva
tion of order and public safety in the city
and province of St. Petersburg, we con
sider it necessary to declare In the above
city and province, instead of the state
of reinforced security which now prevails
there, a state or extraordinary security.
The prefect of the city and the governor
of the province are Intrusted with the
rights thereto appertaining.
The ruling senate win not rail to take
proper measurea to place this Into effect.
Peterhof, July 71.
With these pithy, but momentous, orders.
which were promulgated at 8 o'clock this
morning, Emperor Nicholas by a stroke of
the pen set Russia back: to where It stood
two years ago. In the full grip of the au
tocracy and Irresponsible government, wip
ing out for six months at least the whole
structure of Parliament erected at such
. There Is little doubt that the order for
convocation, of the new assembly will still
further postpone the time, unless the new '
Parliament promises to be more amenable
than the present.
Talk of Universal Saffrnge.
The delay In fixing the time for the new
elections seems to Indicate a decision to
change the present basis of suffrage to
perhaps a basis of universal suffrage, with
which the advisers of the emperor hope to
swamp the educated liberals, the socialists
and the workmen with the vast mass of the
peasantry. The only uncertainty Is the
coming storm when and where It will
break. The advocates of the "mailed fist"
believe that by dissolving Parliament and
provoking a collision now they will find
the revolutionary leaders not prepared for
an uprising, as at Moscow, whereas further
delay would merely give the revolutionists
the time needed to organize and to conlinut
corruption of the army.
There are no precedents In Russian his
tory for the execution of en order of pro
rogation, but Mo'nday probably will find
the Taurlde palace In the possession of the
military and the surrounding streets held
by the emperor's guards.
The constitutional democratic, caucus ad
journed before the news of the dissolution
of Parliament was received, but the Infor
mation already has reached the leaders of
the party. The Associated Press Is Informed
that a meeting has been summoned for
today to dlscusx procedure and whether
they shall attempt, like the French third
estate, to continue existence aala revolting
Jody In defiance of the sovereign
li s will.
Conference at Peterhof Palace.
ST. PETERSBURG. July O.-Aa the
week closes the dissolution ot Parliament,
with all the grave possibilities Involved
In such an event. Is staring the country In
the face. The emperor, discouraged by his
failure to form a coalition ministry and
the distinctly revolutionary paths which
Parliament haa chosen, has apparently
been persuaded to risk a final appeal from
Parliament to the people, or. In other words,
to dissolve Parliament and order new elec
tions on the basis of universal suffrage.
It la positively asserted that Thursday
an imperial ukaaa authorizing the dissolu
tion of Parliament was actually signed and
was to be enforced today, but yesterday.
In view of the manifest efforts of the con
stitutional democrats to nullify the effect
of their action, the execution ot the ukase
Tonight, however, it Is learned that the
delay did not mean the abandonment of the
decision to dissolve Parliament and that
a final, momentous conference on the aub
Ject is being held at Peterhof. Exactly
who la present c.innot be learned, but it
is understood trutt the grand dukes. General
Trepoff and other court oltlclala and one
or two ministers are at the palace.
Riot and Bloodshed Expected.
Evidently the government is not blind
to the fact that the dissolution of Parlia
ment will be accompanied by tremendous
! excitement, licls and bloodshed. If nothing
i Inlantry ai lived In-re this afternoon from
Pskov. This imposing nilitury array Is ex
pected to overawe the muses. The so
