LONDON", July 24 William J". Bryan's
proponed rider to the model arbitration
treaty waa discussed at a session of the
International council of the Interparlia
mentary union this moraine nd resulted
In It being recaat as follow:
If a disagreement should arise which Is
nut Included In those to he submitted to
arbitration, the contracting parties shall
not resort to any act of hostility befoie
they separately or Jointly Invite, a the
esse may necessitate, the formation of an
international commission or Inanity or me
illation of one or more friendly powers.
In n reoti s t on to take Dlace. If necessary
in accordance with article vlll of The Hague
reinvention, providing for a peaceful settle
ment of International-conflicts.
On the resumption of the sessions of the
conference of the Interparliamentary union
today the above was unanimously adopted,
after speeches by former Austrian Minister
of Commerce von Plener and Mr. Bryan,
warmly supporting the amended rider. The
latter said that his amendment waa alined
at widening the scope of arbitration so as
to Include questions of national honor, the
chances being loo to 1 that the proposed
Investigation of facts would also settle any
question of national honor. If the hand of
war could b stayed until the conscience
awakened, wars would become more re
mote. Th amendment therefore was a
iong strp In the direction of peace.
Mi. Bryan'a speech waa brief but eloquent
and aroused much enthusiasm among the
Baron 'dEstournelles de Constant, head
of the French delegation, subsequently
opene. (he debate on the limitation of mili
tary 'find naval forces. He declared that If
the powers were undecided among them
selves how to act for their common Inter
ests they would be forced to do so, first by
bankruptcy und then by revolution. He
said that limitation of srmaments had no
connection with the chimera of disarma
ment. The arguments against disarmament
were based on the augmented expenditure
. of the power. The argumentations In ths
United States were due to the unfortunate
example of Europe, but in proportion to th
population tlto American forces had not
, Ij'-nt tnoreaaed rr aeon, bly , and ;Wsw ex,
'pe.udltuie hud been augmented proportion
ately, the arms.rr.ents proving the Inaptitude
- of. the Americans to transform themselves
Into a nation of soldiers.
Germany, continued the baron, commits
the' grave fault of struggling with the
I lilted Slates for naval pre-eminence and
thus divides Its energies both on land and
sea useleisly, for the American states were
united and Inaccessible, while the states of
Europe ' were divided and will always be
pienaced by the possibility of a coalition
A resolution was agreed to in principle
Lining that the question of disarmament
be pluced on the program of the next
peace conference at The Hague. The
uxact wording of the resolution wilt be
discussed tomorrow. Congressman U. L.
I Granger of Rhode Island was elected

The Chamber of Commerce cf Shanghai

statement made by District Attorney John
8. Robb today there are more sensations
indicated In connection with the HarU
divorce case than have heretofore been die
closed. Mr. Robb, while attending th
hearing, said today that as soon as th
Hartje case was submitted to the court
there would be arrests which would de
velop pronounced sensations.
It is expected that a great legal battle
will lake place when Hartje's attorneys
endeavor to show how the Madlne love
letters were secured.
After several hours devoted by counsel
for Augustus Hartje to the endeavor to
prove the 8usle Wagner letter was written
by Mrs. Mary Scott Hartje, which she has
denied writing, the evidence In rebuttal of
Mrs. Hartje's defense took a new turn to
dav. B. B. Smith, an Insurance agent, gwore
that he found the -Dear F.dith" letter In
the street, and after consulting an attorney,
gave it to Edward G. Hartje, brother of
the plaintiff. '

"Tom" Madine, the coachman cq-respond-ent

that she "coached" him as to the testi

KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 24.-The de
fense In the ice hearing today succeeded In
discrediting the testimony of Peddler O. B.
Shaw, who testified yesterday that he knew
that an c" combine existed here and that
the alleged Ice trust made and controlled
the wholesale and retail prices of Ice. lie
was subjected to a severe cross examin
ation, which developed the fact that he
knew nothing whatever on which to base
his declaraatlon of yesterday.
Other Ice peddlers testified that all the
ice companies advanced the price of Ice
simultaneously here and the witnesses
admitted that an advance In prices was
advantageous to the peddlers ,ss they then
made larger profits. Only one peddler testi
fied thst he bought ice indiscriminately
from all of the Ice companies. The other
peddlers admitted thst they bought Ice
from the plants to which they were di

NEW YORK, July 24,-Mrs. William
Thaw, Harry K. Thaw's mother; his sister,
Mrs. George L. Carnegie, and His wife,
Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, paid another visit to
the Tombs prison today.
While waiting to sec her husband Mrs.
Harry K. Thaw was asked if It is true
that she is seeking a divorce from him.
Mrs. Thaw replied: "That story is per
fectly absurd. It Is a cruel canard. Therj
Is sbsolutely nothing to It."
Much speculation was caused at the dis
trict attorney's office late this afternoon by
the appearance there of a new witness In
the Thaw rase, whose identity none of the
officials concerned would make known. She
i was a woman past 10 years of age. She
came to the criminal courts bu'ldlns in
company with P. L. Rergoff, the detective
whom Stanford Whits employed when he
Is said to have feared injury from Thaw.
The detective and the woman .went to the
office of Assistant District Attorney Turn
bull, where they were closeted for an hour,
a stenographer being In attendance. A
great deal of attention seemed to be paid
to the woman, and her appearance so late
In th day was taken to mean that she
had something of Importance to contribute
to the district attorney's case.

EIGHT-HOUR LAW NOT LIKED
War Department Having nifflralty In
Enforrlna Reeeat Order of
WASHINGTON. July 24 The application
of the president's order relative to the en
forcement of the eight-hour law In the case
Of government contract work has proven
more difficult in th. case of ths War de
partment, owing to its more complex ma
chinery, than with th. Navy department.
so It has been found necessary to prepare
circulars of instruction to the agents of
the department engayea in oin-reni lines
of work, all differing In some essential.
The opinion among me furumi """'
who hav to do nlih public works is that
the rigid application of the president's
eight-hour order will sound th death knell
of the whole system of government con
tract work and that hereafter the govern

Held In Secret In St.
ST. PETERSRCRG. July 24. War to th.
knife with revolution, and tha knife to the
hilt, was proclaimed today hy Premier
Htolypln In a telegram addressed to the
governor generals, governors and prefects
throughout Russia and to the viceroy of
the Caucasus, who are ordered to strike
and spare not In efforts to preserve order
and crush the "enemies of society."
Included In this category, as shown by
the events of the day, arc not only rev
olutloulHta und socialists, but also the edu
cated liberal, and landed classes repre
sented In the constitutional democratic
party whoso clubs everywhere have been
closed, and all the progresslvo newspaper
which are not permitted to lift their vole,
anywhere throughout the entire laud.
Text of the Address.
Premier Stolypln's telegram Is as fol
lows; . .
In conformity with Instructions re
ceived from the empetnr with the"vlew to
securing full co-operation between the dif
ferent local authorities, 1 hereby inform
you that the government expects you to
cxerclne vigilant and untiring supervision
over your subordinates so that order may
be promptly und dellnltely restored. Dis
turbances must be suppressed and revolu
tionary movements must be put down by
all legal means. The measures you take
must be carefully considered. The struggle
begun Is against the enemies of society,
and not against society Itself. Consequently
wholesale repression cannot be approved.
Improvident and Illegal acts are likely to
give rise to discontent Instead of conduc
ing to calm and cannot be tolerated. The
Intentions of the emperor are Immutahle.
The government firmly desires to assist in
the amendment of the legal procedure and
the laws hitherto enforced which no longer
serve their purpoHe. The old regime will
oe regeneratea, nut order must be fully
maintained. You must act upon your own
Inltlstlve as you are Invested with re
sponsibility. Firm and vigorous steps taken
on these lines will doubtless be upheld by
the nest part ot society.
rne manifesto bears a remarkable simil
arity to the earlier compositions of Min
isters of the Interior von Plehv. snd Bou-
ligln, and the reactionary press has had
slight difficulty in cutting It down, as they
already had done with yesterday's imperial
manifesto, into an appeal to the "leagus
of Russian men," and other old school
Russians to rise and smite all the progress
sK? eluMa.' C 'v V-
EVen before the declaration of the dis
solution of ths lower house of parltam.nt
tho war office had perfected Its plans for
handling expected disorders, both military
and civilian. General Muller Zakomelsky,
who suppressed the Sebastopol revolt and
co-operated with General Rennenkampf In
the reduction of the Siberian rebellion last
winter, was recalled from the command of
a corps and placed at th. disposition of
the war office to be used wherever trouble
may first be manifested. Both the govern
ment and the revolutionists expect this
outbreak in the south and that It will roll
north to the two capitals. This may In
duce the proletariat to postpone the dec
laration of a general strike from St. Peters
burg until contagion is borne up from the
south. The railroaders, however, are anxi
ous to have this strike declared at once. ,
members of the Railway Employes' union,
with whom the Associated Press corre
spondents here and In Moscow have talked,
declared that they were ready to walk
out nt the first call from Ihe League of
Leagues, with which tho union Is federated.
Tha strictest censorship over news of
military disorders Is maintained. As an
example, the mutiny at Brest-Lltovsk, July
1.1, when a band of artillerymen from the
fortress fired on the officers' club, killing
two officers, has been transformed Into a
fire, destroying the house of the. officers'
The ministry is obtaining slight Bid from
the forces of society nt large In pulling

have been approached have refused flatly
to participate In the enlarged cabinet pro

ment only Prince Nikolai Lvoft of Saratov,
who. though a constitutional democrat, la
a personal friend of Premier Ptolypln, Is
understood to have given the plan favora

that he probably will accept a ministry
