l.uXON, (Vt. 9 Servla, the Immediate
danger point In the Balkans situation. Is
palming down today and In this direction
the war cloud Is not so threatening as It
was yesterday. The powers, notibly Fiance
ind Great Britain, have warned the Eervlar
king to control his people, and saner coun
sels prevull In Belgrade, where it Is be
ginning to be recognized that war with
Austria-Hungary would mean national sui
cide. Austria-Hungary shows no serious
apprehension over the Servian ebullition.
Great Britain has dispatched a fleet to
tlio Turkish island of Lemnos, presumably
at the request of Turkey. The presence of
these vessels' n the Aegean sea will exert
a calming Influence.
Turkey has protested to the powers against
the annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovina
by AuHtrla-Hungnry, and the Turkish im
perial commissioner at Bofla has been In
structed to continue the discharge of his
duties, as neither the ports nor the powers
have recognised the Independence of Bul
garia. This may lead to some overt act
against the' Imperial commissioner. M.
Iswolsky, the Russian minister of foreign
affairs, has left Paris for London to con
tinue his efforts for the calling of the In
British Warships Ball.
VALLETTA, Malta, Oct. I. The battle
ship Prince of Wales, flagship of Prince
Louis of Battenberg, the battleship Olory,
the cruisers Diana and Suffolk and the
torpedo boat destroyers Angler and Ban

Austria Hungray of the occupied provinces i
of Bosnia and Herzegovina was dispatched

PARIS, Oct. 9. The fate of the Interna
tional conference as a, solution of the Bal
kan crisis depends on the answer given by
Ciiut Britain to M..' Iswolsky, the Russian
minister of foreign affairs, who la pro
ceeding to London.''
Km uce Is confident that if a program
can be arranged a diplomatic way can be
found by which .Austria-Hungary will par
ticipate and that after this no difficulty
ned be expected. Germany and Italy are
now believed to be In direct negotiations
with Constantinople and Vienna. The recog
nition of the annexation of Bosnia and Her
zegovina would remove Austria-Hungary's
only objection to being represented at the
confer nee. France, while sympathizing
with Russia's desire to open the Darda
nelles to Jier warships, supports the Eng
lish view that the conference should be
limited to the regularlzailon of the exist
ing situation by obtaining compensation
for Turkey Instead of at her expense. ,
War Fever on Decline.
, BELGRADE, Oct. .-The war fever
among the people of Servla waa distinctly
on the decline today. The saner element of
the population gradually are obtaining an
ascendancy over the more excited polltl
ciana and patriots, who, during the past
few days, have demanded persistently the
Immediate udvance of the Servian army.
This morning many of the fire brands were
beginning to comprehend that an attempt
to measure swords with Austria-Hungary
would be equivalent to national suicide, and
th oposltlon Is slowly gaining ground that
Servian Interests probably would be best
served by depending on the Joint action of
VIENNA." Oct. . -Official advices re
ceived here this morning declared that th
situation at Belgrade, Servla, Is Improving.
Th general excitement among Servians Ik
calming down. In Vienna the fears of a
war with Servla are noticeably less. Th
morning papers, however, warn Servla not
to play with th fire, aa Auatro-Hungary
will not stand any nonsense.
In spit of the official statement the dis
patch of river gunboats from Budapest In
th direction of Belgrade la only a maneu
ver, this action le believed here to b a
measure of precaution similar to the
guarding of the bridges near the frontier by
regiments of Infantry. The hope Is ex
pressed that this will make an Impression
oo Servla and prevent that kingdom from

CHARGE OF PERJURY IS MADE
Sensational Turn Taken In Inquiry
Into Panama Discrimination
NEW TORK. Oct. . The Inquiry Into
the Panama canal discrimination charges
was temporarily interrupted in a sensa
tional manner today when William A.
Brothers, who brought the charges, pub
licly accused Spencer Miller, a representa
tive of the Lldgerwood company, of per
jury. Brigadier General Garllngton, who Is
conducting the Inquiry, rapped repeatedly
for order, but there was so much commo
tion 1n the room for a time that he could
not make himself heard. "There Is only
one side of this thing . being heard any
way," shouted Brothers over the din.
"There Is no use of my talking. You don't
want to hear the truth. I will withdraw."
With that Brothers left the room and
General Garllngton was unable to restore
order a temporary adjournment of th In
quiry waa ordered.
The Inquiry by General Garllngton, In
spector general of the army, has been 1n
progress In the army building here for
several days. It was begun for the pur
pose of looking Into the merits of the
charges of discrimination by the canal com
missioners In awarding a contract for
cable way on the isthmus, which had
been preferred by Brothers. Mr. Brothers,
who is president of th Balanc Cable
Crane company of New York, alleged that
th canal commission In Issuing specifica
tions for the contract discriminated against
his company and that Improper methods
had been employed In preveutlng him from
receiving the award.
Mr. Miller, who Is chief engineer of
th Lldgerwood company, waa on th wit
ness stand yesterday and he was recalled
when the Inquiry wn resumed today. He
had told of being Informed when ' on a
visit to Panama that bids were to be
asked on the cableways on the Gatun locks.
"Did you ever offer me any money aa
security for the use of our patent towers!
Mr. Miller said:
"There is a lawsuit now pending be
tween the Lldgerwood company and a
party who bought a plant from the Bal
ance Cable company and I have been croae
examined by attorneys for Brothers for
five day, and I cannot go further. I re-
fuaa unleaa ordered by th oourt to answer
any further questions asked by Mr. Broth
"Then only on side of tb case Is to b
heard." said Mr. Brothers. "I withdraw
from the meeting until summoned. Only
one side ot It Is being heard, anyway."
"Keep quiet." shouted General Garllng
ton. "you cannot make Indiscriminate
As Brothers walked away from the table,
he turned back to General Garllngton. "I
want 1t to appear on the minutes that I

It to go on the record."

GRADING FOR UNION PACIFIC
Athol-Borle (Tut-Off Completed and
Work In Nebraaka to Bo
CHEYENNE, Wyo., Oct. . (Speclal.)
Kllpatrick Bros. & Collins today turned
over to the Union Pacific railroad company
the completed grade of the Athol-Borle
cut-off, and will at once ship their big
grading outfit to other points where Union
Pacific contracts are to be fulfilled.
About fifty per cent of the grading ma
chinery la to be sent to Superior, Sweet
water county, where the big tipples of the
Union Pacific Coal company must be moved
from the government ground, on which
they were built by mistake. About lOO.Ouo
yards of excavating must be done at the
location to which the tipples are to be
moved. The Improved location of the Su
perior tipples is about the most expensive
mistake Union Faclflo engineer have made
In recent years.
The remainder of the Kllpatrick grading
outfit Is to be shipped to Oshkosh, Neb.,
where the Union Pacific will begin the ex
tension of Its North Piatt valley line up
the river Into Wyoming. Definite Informa
tion concerning this work cannot be
obtained, but It Is understood grading is to
be pushed throughout the winter.
In addition to the Superior and Oshkoah
work, Kllpatrick Bros. & Collins have an
other large Union .Pacific contract the
grading for a double track between
Granger and Green river, a distance of
thirty miles. Thl work is progressing
steadily and the double track will be In
operation be for th end of the year.
The completion of the Athol-Borle cut-off
means that In a short time freight ship
ments from the northwest to Denver and
other southern points, and vie versa, will
not pas through Cheyenne and will go
around Instead of over Athol hill, at the
present Urn the steepest grade on the

(From a Stsff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN.' Oct. . (FpoclaU-Tnrn Allrn,
chairman of Mr. Bryan's political party,
has pulled off another side-stepping stunt
up to the standard of Mr. Bryan's man
agers. He has quietly put his executive
committee on the shelf. He did this be
cause objection had been made to two nr
three members of the committee, as their
calling did not square with some of the
things Mr. Bryan Is talking about. In place
of the first committee he has named thes3
men.: H. L. Wells, West Point; C. E. Fan
ning, Omaha; Nell Mapes, Schuyler; Joseph
G. Beeler. North Platte; G. W, Potts, Paw
nee City; James T. Brady, Albion; E. H.
The naming of this new executive com
mittee puts the gaff Into Harry Hayward
f Omaha and John Mattes, Jr., of Ne
braska City, and puts -It there hard. Of
coucse Mattes was named for a member of
the original executive committee as a con
solation prize, after his defeat for the
nomination for secretary of state. Then
came the protests over the selection of
Mattes and Hayward.
Tom Allen had his ear to the ground. He
was asked today why he fired Hayward
and Mattes from the executive committee.
"They were never on the committee" he
said. "They belong to the committee on
organization. They still belong to that
committee. I have Just appointed an ex
ecutive committee. We have two commit
tees entirely separate and distinct."
As a matter of fact Allen wanted the
help of Hayward and Mattes, but when It
came to standing for them when the spot
light was turned on, he calmly gave their
committee the name of the "Committee on.
Organization" and named another executive
committee which will have nothing to do
but take the blame or reap the reward of
the work of Harry Hayward of Omaha and
John Mattes, they have been removed In
