ST. PETERSBURG. July 25.--Though It

What news ha been received from the
province today Indicate that condition

districts, for an upheaval. The strategists
of the revolutionary council are laboring
with the hot head to Induce them to defer
the call for a general strike until It can

be reached within a day or two In the re

Distress In . Interior.
The most urgent problem before the gov
ernment, in case an immediate outbreak Is
postponed la the. relief of the distress In
the Interior. The cabinet meeting Tuesday
evening was devoted to consideration of thia
subject and it was voted to extend relief
works In the famine districts. A commis
sion was appointed to decide where the
budget could best be cut to find the 17,500,-

Premier Btolypln announced to the council
of the empire today that he had obtained
from Emperor Nicholas special powers for
Admiral Skrydloff In restoring and main

that his first tack would be to investigate
the arrests of sailors of the fleet and liber
ate those who were unjustly sent to prison,

largely to blame for the mutinous spirit of
the various crews. The admiral took with

justice is done in future court martlals.
Admiral Skrydloff said he had learned that
Admiral Rojeatvensky and Captain Clado

Stockholders Accuse President with
Lssseklsg Private Venture
with Company I'ssdi.
PITTSBURG, July 26 At a sensational'
meeting of the stockholder of the West
lnghouse Electric Manufacturing company
today George Westinghouse, president of
the company, w charged openly by stock
holder with launching private ventures
with the company's funds. The directors
were charged with aiding him In this, but
after a bitter squabble the slated board
of directors was elected and the official
coterie won out.
Jamea Carrothers, one of the minority
stockholder led th 'Opponent Of Me.
Westinghouse. The Incident grew out of
the report of the company. Mr. Csrrothers
called attention to the asset in which was
stock and bonds of the Urkawanna &
Wyoming Valley Rapid Transit company,
t6,SO0,000. Mr. Carrothers wanted to know
how much was stock and how much was
bonds. '
There was a hot discussion and it devel
oped that the capital stock of the Lacka
wanna A Wyoming Valley Rapid Transit
company Is $3,000.(100 and the road cost
about $6,000,000. No one was sure that
these figures were correct, and there was
more or less confusion.
Finally Mr. Carrothers said:
"We have $6,000,000 worth of bonds and
$300,0i0 worth of stock. Who has the re
mainder of the stock? Thl company fur
nlshel all the money that Is spent on the
road and gets only $300,000 worth of stock.
Why should not this company have all the
stock if It pays for the road?"
No one present was enabled to explain
the report in detail. The adoption of the
report waa moved by John Gregg, one of
the director, who aald:
"Before we close I want to know from
whom the stock of thl rapid transit com
pany was purchased. I understand that
these stocks were purchased from Mr.
Westinghouse, that this is a private corpo
ration and that Mr. Westinghouse unloaded
the stock on thl company."
A vole waa heard. "At twice it value."
After several calls for a vote the report
was adopted, the old board of directors was
re-elected, with the exception of Jamea
Hasen Hyde, who I succeeded by T. W.
Siemon, and Frank H. Taylor, whose place
Is taken by W. D. Uptegraff.
The meeting held today was the first
held since July 23, HOT, nine years ago,
when the stockholder met at the plant in

Woman Who Brooa-ut Rrelru Thaw
from Pari 1 Fouu tor
NEW TORK. July .-Th Evening World
today published an Interview with Miss
Annie Crane, a masseuse of this city whose
statement was taken yesterday by an as
sistant district attorney lor possible use in
the Thaw case.
According to the World Interview Miss
Crane, who is about W years old, was sent
to Paris by Stanford White In 1EM In re
sponse to appeals from Mrs. Nesblt (now
Mrs. Holman), Evelyn Nshlt's mother.
and brought the young woman back to
New York. Miss Crane is quoted by the
World as saying that he knew Miss Nesblt
before the young woman and her mother
went abroad In W4 and were followed to
Paris by Harry K. Thaw. Mr. White, she
said, then sent for her, told her that he
had received several communications from
Mra. Holman and asRed her to go to Part
and straighten out matters. When she ar
rived In Paris, Mis Crane'- said, she found
that all three had been living In a beautiful
apartment near the Champ Elysee and
that Thaw hd been the principal caller
upon Miss Nesblt.
"The day I got there," said Miss Crane,
"a terrible row had taken place, and Mrs.
Nesblt had been put out of the apartment
by Thaw, who acted like a maniac. Mr.
Thaw was nearly destitute and but for the
arrival of a woman newspaper writer, who
had gone abroad with the NesMts and been
left behind in London, she would never
have got bnck to the Vnlted State. The
newspaper woman aided Mr. Nesblt with
her own money and subsequently cabled
Mr. White for fund."
Sue declared her belief that Thaw was
a lunatlo and said that 'Miss Nesbtt also
believed it at that time. Miss Crane said
that Miss Nesblt showed lo her bruise on
her back and arm which Miss Nesblt said
were Inflicted by Thaw. Several occasions
when ahe was present, .Mis Crane said.
Thaw tried to choke Mis Nesblt and left
the marks of his fingers on her throat. Miss
Crane asserted that she saw Thaw beat
Miss Nesblt and thatt twice when Miss
Crane interfered Thaw struck her also. It
was Thaw's habit when tie went out on tha
Paris boulevards to stroll with other
women. Miss Crane said, to lock Miss Nes
blt and Miss Crane in. their apartments.
Miss Nesblt considered an appeal to the
French authorities, but realized, through
fear, that it would ruin her stage career.
Thaw constantly raved over men whom
Miss Nesblt knew in New York and often
spoke of Stanford White in a threatening
manner, MJns Crane declared. Finally
Thaw consented to aliow Miss Nesblt to
return to New York and they sailed after a
violent scene in I.ondon. :
On the way across the ocean, said Miss
Crane, Miss Nesblt declared her Intention
of bringing a suit of breach af promise
against Thaw and of charging him with
assault. When they arrived in New York
White's automobile was waiting them, and
Miss Nesblt went direct to White's office,
which. Mis Crane, said, . must have been
by arrangement made by. Mias Nesbit's
mother. A family conference, she declared,
ensued and several day .rater Miss Nesblt
. . i. . ..
went to tne omce or ji. is. iiummei, tne
lawyer, end made a s'v ment concerning
Thaw' conduct. The ":', Miss Crane said,
"was to have beea lor tiWtf.
.Mis Cran said uji 'Stanford Whl'o
acted like a gentleman, that Mis Nesblt
had only the kindest words to say of him
and that he was a kind-hearted man, whom

half a doxen times, such was hospitality
shown them. At Merrlman, a town of lf)
people, the boosters were escorted to a

the matter of allowances to elevators by
the I'nlon Pacific Railway company.
The petitioners allege that the I'nlon Pa
cific entered Into a contract with Teavey
ft Co., under which the latter company
erected grain elevators at Council Bluffs
and Kansas City for the transfer of gralu
for the public from the incoming cars of
the Union Pacific to outgoing cars of the
connecting lines at thesn terminal points
of the I'nlon Pacltic and for this service
the t'nlon raciflc agreed to pay Feavey &
Co. lt cents per hundred weight. The com
plaining railroads allege that the facts are
"the elevators of Peavey & Co. were not
i built for su.-h purposes and never have to
any considerable extent. If at all, thus
transferred grsln for the public, but were
built and have been used solely and exclu
sively for their own use In the grain trade."
I Local Opinion of Suit.
Nothing In railroad rate matter recently

regarded as another victory for Stlckney.

Interstate Commerce Commission decided
the I'nlon Pacific company had a perfect
right to pay this elevation charge on ac
count of its situation. Omaha and Kan
sas City are the terminals of the Cnlon
Pacific and that company Is willing to pay
1 n cents per hundred to have its car
emptied and returned to it inside of forty
eight hours so they can be sent back for
another load. The contract with Peavey
& Co. has stood, and In addition a contract
was entered Into with the Trausmlssis
sippl Grain company similar to that of th
Peavey contract.
When Mr. Stlckney began his agitation
against the payment of elevation charges
at the Missouri river th t'nlon Pacific
thought to strengthen its position by
making the rate open and agreed to pay
1 '4 cent per hundred to all elevator
which would perform the service of un
loading these cars and getting them back
to the Union Pacific Inside of forty-eight
hours. This removed the exclusive nature
of the contract and gave all elevator an
even break. A cruaad was started and
all other roads have stopped the psyment
of elevation charges except the I'nlon Pa
cific at Omaha and Kansas City and th
Rock Island at Kansas City.
I'nlon Pnrlfle' Attitude.
Th I'nlon Pacific claim tht by the
nature of it position in terminating on
tho Missouri river it lias the right to pay
this service for the prompt delivery of it
car, it being worth that much to. get the
car back immediately. Time was, not far
back, when several elevations were paid.
The road tired of thl Snd rut out th
elevation allowance and cut th rata,
which they said was th same to them.
They claim It I better to hav a lower
rate than to be handing back rebates a
the shape of elevation allowances.
It wos the announcement of the Union
Pacific that it would pay the elevation
allowance to all elevators performing the
service which brought on thi recent rate
war with the. Burlington. The Burlington
reduced Its rsto and refused to pay eleva
tion. This war has been settled and all is
running quietly, waiting for something
new to turn up. The date of the hearing
has not been announced, but the Union
Pacific officials say they are ready. They
say they won the case before when their
position was not as strong as It Is now
and when the best legal talent the Bur
lington and the Sart Fe could procure
was engiig-d In prosecuting il,e case,
which was thnr basin d out.
