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 ternational conference. 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 shee sailed today for the Aegean sea.

" Turkish Protest Forwarded. Constantinople; Oct. .-The protect of tits' porte concerning the annexation by Austria Hungray of the occupied provinces i of Bosnia and Herzegovina was dispatched to the powers today. It la practically Iden tical with the protest against the Bulgarian declaration of Independence. Doubt regarding the success of the pro pound International conference persists In Constantinople. The porte has Instructed the Imperial Ottoman commissioner resident In Bofla to continue his functions, as neither Turkey nor the powers have recognised the Independence of Bulgaria. '" lawolaky Enroute to London. 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 the powers.

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! asked Brothers. 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 ers." "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 charges here." As Brothers walked away from the table, he turned back to General Garllngton. "I want 1t to appear on the minutes that I oharg th witness with perjury," he said. "I will submit a written statement notify lug you of th position I take and I want It to go on the record." Tuwn ot Tall Destroyed. MANILA, Oct.

MATTES AND HAYWARD VICTIMS Berge Balk oa Going; on the Stump for Bhallenhera-er and Will Be Given Date In State Other Than Nebraska. (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. Cox, Bladen. 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 "name only." Serve Will Not Stump State. After belnr forced to violate his oath and decline the nomination for governor at the hands of the populist party, Georgo W.

But he will not stump Ne braska for Mr. Bryan or for Mr. Shallen borgcr. He will be gone until almost elec tion time. The Bryan committf expected Mr. Berge to get out In Nebraska ar.d explain to the populist and progressive democrats that the disfranchisement of the populists was the best thing for them; they expected Berge to be able to line them up for the state and national tickets. But It Is very evident Mr. Berge has got enough. After the exposure of the stacked hand they dealt him In tho fight over ths nomination the fortner Idol of the pop la said to have lost considerable of his fire and ginger and th committee could not Induce him to liven up and stir the breezes for Mr. Bhal lenborger. But Mr. Borge had no desire to be ugly In the matter, so he I leaving the state. The progressive democrats and members of the populist party who know Mr. Berge ha not received a square deal from the democratic manipulators may have an Idea why he s going.
