Austrian. Spanish. Dutch and other royal lines

the Grand Duke Michael, the heir presumptive
to the Rus*len throne, lacks the qualities of a

Danish blood is considered a great gain for
monarchical principles. The cycle ofTlussian
misfortunes, moreover, is so complete, with Gen

and with the fleet chattered and dispersed, that

}« more cautious than a British admiral would
be In simiiar conditions, end that the flight
loescs sustained on the Japanese side are due
to his precautions ln keeping the big ships In
the background and forcing the fighting with
lorpefio craft. The escape of four cruisers and
three or more torpedo destroyers to Chinese and
Germs ports raises a troublesome question of
neutrality law. The Japanese government clearly
must repudiate the capture of the RyeEhitelnl
at Cne-Foo, since it was a wanton act of war
In a neutral port. The Japanese have been no
scrupulous in respecting neutral rights that
ample amend? may be expected for this inde
fensible act. The Askold may leave Woo-Sung

other Russian vessels probably will be disarmed
by the German officials.
The Foreign Office and the State Department
are net co-operating: in defence of neutral trade,
but are using similar arguments and phrases
and protesting against the same breaches of
International law. Lord Lansdowne's state
ment that the British government objected
ttrongly to the Russian definition of contraband

have l.een made months ago. It Is not yet
clear that the Foreign Office protested against
the Hussian admiralty's instructions to naval
effloere empowering them to destroy neutral
chips when it -.vaa dangerous or inconvenient
to take then Into port as prizes, or that the
Czar's ' government has been warned that de
cisionF of prize courts that are at variance with
the accepted principles of international law will
not be recognized as valid. Mr. Half our is credited
'ltt. rigorous measures in defence of the rights
of neutral, and it is assumed that the Rus

Paris. Aug. 13.— M. Waldeck- Rousseau's death
puts all other topics into the shade, and is
admitted on all sides, even among his bit
terest opponents, to be a great loss to
France. His splendid oratorical talent, which
was remarkable more for its perfection of
form and faultless logic than for flowery
rhetoric, placed him miles ahead of any liv

appeared cold and distant, but this his friends
who knew him best attributed to s secret timid

Jeopardize his public career. They say he was
at heart tender and gentle, with much of the
dreamy, artistic Breton temperament. His po

who choot us in the back." and that no ma
jority really loyal to the republican regime
could be obtained in the Chamber without In

31ANILA DAY AT ST- LOUIS
Secretary Taft Speaks on the Needs
of the Philippines.
St. Louis, Aug. 13.— The anniversary of the fall
of Manila was observed at the exposition to-day.
Among the guests were Secretary Taft. former
Civil Governor of the Philippines; General Mer

eral Charles King. General Bell. General Hum
phrey, General Bates, General Wheaton. General
Summers. General Smith and General Metcalf.
The exercises opened with a military parade
led by Secretary Taft. The speaking was opened by
Vt. W. P. Wilson, chairman of the Philippine Ex
position Board. An address followed by Brigadier
General Irving Hale, on behalf of the army of the
Philippines. President Francis of the Exposition
made a speech of welcome. He was follow^
KniV" n "°, Lagarde. president of the honorary
Doara of Pniiipplue commissioners. Secretary Taft
was the last speaker. Ha said In part:

£?* B i., Thls ex Posltlon has cost much money, con
siderably more than was projected when the bill
was passed authorizing it to be made. The Philip
pine treasury has many calls upon it. and the rev
enues have fahen off because of the commercial
S V e .! in the Islands, and yet. with that. I feel
that the money which has here. been expanded will
li.ure. many fold to the benefit of the Philippine
islands in the invitation which is here presented to
American enterprise and American good will to
aid the X lhpmo people in their struggle onward and
upward ito a higher and more progressive civiliza
tion and prosperity.
Much is no* dependent upon legislation by Con
ptss. I\e new! the active assistance of the Phil
ippine government in the islands to secure the
construction of the railroads that are absolutely
necessary to the development cf those islands,
which are absolutely necessary to the elevation of
the people and their education. If the experience
oi me other colonies In the world ln railway «**■
ruction can teach anything, it is that we may
£'*; look for the construction of railways In the
r"ftUlppmes except through governmental construc
tion or aid. Now, it is very clear to m*- that k«v
t-rnme;ita ; construction will involve the country in
greatly more debt than th- mere guarantee rf tre
income for a certain number of years; lhi» it will
avoid the increase of the personnel of the gov
ernment and Civil Service to ruch a point as to
maki) the government topheavy, and subject its
Civil Swrvlce to great abuses, and that it will se
cure to the government the energy and the en
terprise of private capital an 1 of that competition
which has done so much for the United States.
The bill which has passed the House of Repre
sentatives authorizes the Philippine government,
through the commission, to guarantee the income,
not exceeding 5 per cent, on the amount actually
Invested in any railway for thirty years, but also
stipulates that provision must be made in the
contract of guarantee by which there shall be
secured to the government ultimately the repay
ment of fill the money paid under the guarantee.
Should the Philippine islands be tranaftrfd to
another government this obligation could, of
course, by th- terms of the charter, bo imposed
on the new government, and does not implicate
or bird the United States in any way beyond the
time when Its relation to th* Philippine govern
ment shall cease.
TARIFF LAWS NEED AMENDMENT.
Second— The Philippine Islands need and will ne
cure from Congress legislation which shall bring the
Philippine market within the tariff wall and enable
the Phlllprine farmers to sell in the rich market
of the United States the products of their far dis
tant islands. Third— We need the authority to
amend the tariff laws now in force in the Philippine
Islands, so that the lessons of experience in the
actual operation of the tariff may be taken ad
vantage of. and the changes made therein which
shall admit to the Islands without the burden of
tariff those particular articles needed, especially
In building up the country. Recommendations have
been made by a commission appointed by the gov
ernment In the. Philippine^ Islands which did not
reach this country In time to bring them before
Congress at Its last session, but it will be the duty
of the government to present the recommendations
of the commission and th« report of the committee
at the session which la to come.
We so much depend upon Congressional action,
we so much depenj for the future of the Philippine
Islands upon the view of the American people, that
there cannot be any doubt of the wisdom of the
expenditure of a large sum of money, such as is
her© Invested, In presenting to the American people
the exact situation in the Islands, bo far as that
can be done by exhibits of this character.
I congratulate Professor Wilson, Mr. Nlederleln
and Senor Paterno on the excellence of this ex
hibit; I congratulate Colonel Edwards, upon whose
shoulder* has fallen so much of the responsibility
for Its financial management and arrangement: I
congratulate the whole corps of earnest, hard
working assistants upon their work, which shows
for Itself. To the honorary Filipino Commission
I have only to -ay that I cohjrratulate them on the
fine Impression they have made in this country and
the assurance they havo Riven to the American
people of the possibilities of th»» development of the
whol« Christian Filipino people. 1 extend to them
my earnest wishes for their future happiness ana

MR. TAFT EXPLAINS.
Did V■' lv.tir.icAc United State*
May Give Up the Philippines.
St. Louis, Aug. 13.— Secretary Taft said to-night
that he did not Intimate or Intend to Intimate In
his speech at the exposition grounds that the
United States government might In the future
transfer the Philippine Islands to another power.
"1 never had any such thought." said he. "I
alluded to the fact that in all the colonies rail
ways have been constructed by the governments of
those colonies, or the government had assisted in
their construction by guaranteeing the Income on
the investment. Consequently, in the light of this
statement, we may Mot look for the construction
of railways in the Philippines except through gov
ernmental construction or aid. 1 then explained
that the governmental construction would Involve
a country in greatly more debt than the mere
guarantee of the income for a certain number of
yeurs. The bill which lias passed the House of
Representatives authorizes the Philippine govern
ment through the commission, to guarantee th«
Income, not exceeding i per cent, on the amount
actually Invested in any railway, for thirty years,
but also stipulates that provision must be made in
the contract of guarantee by which there shall be
secured to the "government ultimately the repay
ment of all the moneys paid under the guarantee
"In order to accentuate this explanation. said
Secretary Taft "I went on to say that should the
Philippine Islands be transferred to another gov
ernment tho terms of the charter could, of course
i mouse this obligation en the new government, an.l
would not implicate or bind the United States In
any way beyond the time of the breaking off of its
relations to the Philippine government By this. I
think It Is plain that I did not intimate, as I un
derstand has been attributed to me. that the
United States intends giving up the Philippine

MISS GLASER WINS SUIT
Injunction Against Diilingftam Engagement
It was decided that Miss Lulu Glaser may ap
pear at the Knickerbocker Theatre on September
5 under the management of Charles B. Dlllingham.
In a decision handed down yesterday by Justice
Lambert of the Supreme Court, sitting ln West
cbestsr County, denying F. C. Whitney's motion
Miss Glasor be enjoined from so appearing.
Mies Olasar was under a contract with Whitney.
which expired last spring. This contract had an
option clause providing that if mutually agree
able thn contract be renewed. A renewal was n>t
agreeable to Miss Glasei, she bald, although Mr.
Whitney declared that in conversation she had
tacitly agreed to it. In Judge Lambert's decision
denying the motion for an injunction, he says, re
ferring to the disputed clause:
In this there Is no basis for epeelfln performance
nor damage for a breach. The booking of the route
for l»W-o6, which Is reiied upon by the plaintiff to
cm" firm his version ot the interview with defendant,
resulting as lie claims. In consummating the con
tract In" question, is fully met by the denial of the
vital parts and a reasonable explanation of the
part she took in the interview.
Miss Glaser. Mr. Dllllgham and their attorneys
coiitiJer the victory complete, as Justice Lambert
had not deemed it necessary to deny the motion
for injunction on any of the several technical points
of the case.

which momentarily threatened showers, could not
dampen the spirit* of the spectators, who were in
Shortly after 3 o'clock, an hour before the parade
began, automobiles and tally-hos, interspersed
with smart traps, began to arrive, and soon the
parking spaces were all occupied. When at length
the first event began there was scarcely a space
remaining in the outside circle about the ring,
while the grounds were ciowded.
The principal event was the competition for the
prize offered for the most original and artistic
costume. The ludicrous Impersonations of tbe
contestants' evoked bursts of laughter and en
thusiastic applause. Miss Dorothy Snow assumed

of J. L. Breese, swept about the track In an auto

PIECE OF CHRIST'S ROBE.
Many Other Alleged Relics Brought
ATTESTED BY A CARDINAL.
The Bohemian Catholic Church of St. John,
at No. 241* East Seventy-flrat-st., haa recently
acquired ■ collection of sacred relics, whose au
thenticity was attested by Cardinal Patrizi in
1842 The relice have come from a noble family
in Rome, which for many years treasured them
as priceless heirlooms. Two years ago a New-
York priest, on a visit to the Eternal City,
came Into possession of the relics. As a mark
of the eatesm in which he holds Father Pron;.
the pastor of the newly founded parish of St.
John, this priest presented the reliquary and Its
contents to the church. The reliquary is 10 by
18 Inches and contains sixty-five relics. The
ca*»e is securely sealed with the stamp of Car
dinal Patrizi. and Is accompanied by tfce Car
dinal's certificate of genuineness, written ln
The relics Include pieces "of the true cross of
Christ, of the red robe worn by Christ after the
scourging, of Christ's sepulchre, of the title In
scription of the cross, of the table of the Last
Bupper. of the rope used to tie our Lord, of the
pillar at which He was scourged, of the crib of our
Lord, of the grave of the Blessed Virgin, of the

Father Front told a Tribune reporter last night.
' must never be unfastened or broken. Did this
by any mischance ever happen, the efficacy
would be lost and the reliquary would have to b«
returned to Rome with an explanation.'' Th*
relics, each carefully labelled ln minute Latin
script, are clearly visible behind the three thin
glass doors of the case. They are fastened to
the upright face. The largest of them Is
scarcely bigger than the head of a tack, and
many of them are as small as a grain of gun
powder. The piece <•:" "red robe" resembles In
color and conformation a thin diamond shaped
wood splinter. Th.- front of the case is ornate
with gilt pillars.
Father Pront expects many cures from the ex
position of the relics. The fragment of a boa©

veneration, many cures having been, wrought by
another fragment exposed in this city. The
