\£« climbed aboard the trains-all with a 'Pike's

The Sullivan crowd got away on an Erie train

in charge of "Tom" Rush.
The specials halted In the tralnshed for ten imn

"We're big fellows here in New York; but the

Those who went out over the New York Cen

said that unless the Democratic platform Included

There were seven hundred guests present.
Alexander Troup. of New Haven, said that it was

week they would be for Bryan.
•It is true." paid Mr. Troup. "that there are
two delegates instructed for Johnson, but they
will rote for him under protest." He closed with
a prediction of Democratic success, and suggested
that with a ticket composed of Bryan, of Neb

Three Women Drop Dead from
Shock-— -Many Become Insane.
Yusovo, July 3.— The bodies of '214 persons re
covered from the Rikovsky mine. here there
was an explosion «f gas yesterday, were buried
to-day.
Fire added to the horror of the situation to
day It broke out this morning, and, penetrat
ing the inner galleries where there are 15<> men
imprisoned, made the efforts of rescue parties
almost useless. In the distance, behind the
of fallen wreckage, could be heard all day cries
for help. Fifty-three bodies were taken out to
day, all mutilated, some of the men having been
burned to death, while the heads and limbs of
others had been torn off by the force of the ex
plosion. Seventy-five wounded also were taken
out and removed to hospitals. Of these ten died
during the day and many others are in a pre
carious condition.
Three women who stood at the mouth of the
pit and recognized the bodies of their husbands
dropped dead from shock. A number of others
have gone mad.
The explosion occurred just after the night
shift entered the mine, at 5:30 o'clock In the
afternoon. The la&t twenty men of the shift
were still in the cage at the bottom of the shaft,
and they were drawn to the surface uninjured.
Rescue parties were at once organized. Six of
the rescuers were suffocated. The others
bravely continued at work.
In the mean while the five thousand miners
who had gathered at the head of the shaft be
came so excited that troops had to be sum
moned. They cleared the ground, and now al

MAXY DEAD OB HUBT.
Beporfs in Teheran Begarding the
Slaughter at Tabriz.
London, July 4. — "The Daily Mail's" corre
spondent at Teheran says that, owing to the
strict censorship of telegrams from th«J prov
ince*, nothing is known of the state of affairs
at Tabriz. It is reported, he says, that there
have been four thousand casualties there and
that seventeen hundred citizens have taken
refuge In the Russian bank.
Tabriz. July 3.— The trouble in this city broke
out again to-day when the reactionists and tha
revolutionists, after a brief truce yesterday
evening-, again began shooting:.
The revolutionists last evening hoisted a white
flag and Intimated their desire to surrender,
but a . reactionary mob took advantage of this
action to loot and destroy the bazaar quarter of
the city. The revolutionists at once recalled all
their men to arms. They erected another barri
cade and a bloody conflict began.
All the foreign residents of Tabriz have hung
out over their houses their respective flags.
They are not believed to be in danger.
There is a serious shortage of bread in Tabriz.
Teheran is quiet.
Berlin. July 4.— A dispatch to the "Lokal
anzelger" from Teheran, dated 6:15 p. m. Fri
day, says:
The Shah is endeavoring to win popularity by
posing as the father Of the people. His majesty
issues daily proclamations saying that he will
fulfil every desire of the people and also that
he will reduce the cost of necessaries of life. He
requests the people to show confidence in the
newly appointed governors, and expresses a
■wish for the return of peaceful conditions.
The leaders in the agitation now are quietly
recognizing the strength of the Shah's party.
Not a shot has been fired here in several days
owing to the severe penalties attaching to such
actions. The stores of dealers in weapons have
been closed and quiet reigns.
The discontent in the provinces, however, con
tinues. Force la being employed to compel sub
mission at Tabriz. Etescht, Bchlrax and other
cities, but the fear is expressed that there will
be a fresh rising against the Shah in the winter.
The Shah's victory, it is said, would have been
impossible without the aid of the Cossacks, and
consequently his majesty holds them in the
greatest esteem. Th- rumor that a corps of
25,000 Persian Cossacks under Russian officers
is being formed seems to obtain increasing
credence. It is said that Russia will undertake
their equipment and frfmament. and that when
they are trained the Cossacks will be spread
over the country. The Persian people, however,
are protesting against this scheme and threaten
to boycott Russian goods.
The feeling against Russia is growing, and
fears arc expressed that her intervention will
lead to international complications.
The Shah remains within the Baghshah Gar
dens. evidently fearing for his life, and prob
ably will not return to the summer residence
before October. It is said that he is encouraged
by his recent success and intends to order fur
ther energetic measures.
The rumor that th*> British Minister to Persia
has bee;; recalled is said to be without founda
tion. On the contrary, it is said that King Ed
ward telegraphed the Shah that he entirely
approved the action of his minister in giving
shelter within the legation to refugees.

NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, SATURDAY, JULY 4, 1908.
A ROYAL AERIAL TRIP
King and Queen of Wu'rtcmbcrg on
Count Zeppelin's Airship.
Krifdrichshafcn, July 3. — For the first time in
history a reigning king and queen to-day made
an ascension in a dirigible balloon. The royal
personages were King Wilhelm of Wiirtomberg
and Queen Charlotte, who are staying at their
castle on the shores of Lake Constance, and
accepted Count Zeppelin's offer to make a trip
in his airship. His majesty was the first to
ascend, and sailed for half an hour over the
waters of the lake. He found the experience
so delightful that he requested Count Zeppelin
lo return to the floating shed, where he prevailed
on Queen Charlotte to take his place on the
platform for an aerial trip.
Hearing that the King and Queen of Wurtem
berg had arrived at their ca3tle. on the borders
of Lake Constance, Count Zeppelin decided at 3
iO'clock this afternoon to make an ascension.
After manoeuvres he took the machine above
the castle and circumnavigated the royal park.
The royal family watched the evolutions from
the grounds of the castle, and when the airship
returned to the lake the King and Queen went
on board the royal yacht to the balloon shed.
Their presence was signalled to Count Zeppelin
and the airship immediately descended.
Count Zeppelin offered to take King Wilhelm
for a trip, and the monarch accepted without
hesitation, stepping aboard the forward plat
form, beside Count Zeppelin, Herr Duerr, the
engineer, and several mechanics, while General
yon Hellsinger. the King's chief aid, mounted
the aft platform.
At 3:30 o'clock the airship rose slowly in the
air 150 feet. Its bows then were turned toward
the castle, which was reached in eight minutes.
The grounds were circled several times. Then
a return was made to the shed, where the Queen
was waiting. The water anchor was cast out,
and King Wilhelm and his aid were transferred
to a motor boat. They landed at 4:04 p. m.
The King appeared to be enthusiastic while
telling his experience to the Queen, who a few
minutes afterward adopted his suggestion to
make the trip.
Boarding the motor boat her majesty mounted
the fore platform of the balloon, accompanied
by a lady of honor, while Court Chamberlain
Rassler clambered to the platform aft. Again
the airship rose at 4:13 o'clock, followed by the
motor boat, bearing King Wilhelm. Another
visit was made over the castle grounds. The
crows below waved handkerchiefs and cheered,
the 1 occupants of the balloon replying.
Th<= return journey to the floating do*ck was
made soon afterward. The Queen landed at
4:40 p. m., and boarding the royal yacht, went
toward the castle amid the cheers of thousands
of spectators.
Later Count Zeppelin carried out further steer
ing tests in a most satisfactory manner. Thou
sands of congratulatory dispatches from all
parts of the world have reached him. Among
them is one from Emperor William, which says:
"Heartiest congratulations. I stand by you now,
as ever."

DEFICIT IMAGINARY
MB. COBTELYOV EXPLAINS
Antiquated Bookkeejring Besponsi
blc for Poor Treasury Showing.
[From Th» Tribune Bureau]
Washington, July 3.— There was an actual surplus
in the ordinary receipts and expenditures of the
government in the fiscal year ended last
Tuesday, instead of the apparent deficit of about
$60,000,000 shown by the official Treasury state
ments issued on July 1, the misleading difference
being due to an antiquated system of bookkeeping,
which Secretary Corteiyou is having overhauled
and modernized. The amount of new debt created
in the year was only $7,000,000 In excess of the
amount of the old debt redeemed, and $55,000.n00 was
expended on new public works, of which less than
half was paid for by the creation of a funded
debt. According to a statement issued from Sec
retary Cortelyou's office to-day, two of the fun
damental errors in the present system of making
up the Treasury statements are that the proceeds
of bonds sold are not counted in the receipts, but
all the money which is paid out for the purposes
for which the bonds are issued is Included in ex
penditures. In this respect the practice of the
United States Treasury departs from that of all
other important governments. The latter take
care to distinguish between ordinary receipts,
which are devoted to the actual running expenses
of the government, and extraordinary receipts,
which are set aside for permanent public works or
other special purposes. The total amount expended
for the canal in the last fiscal year was $84,825,328.
Under a proper method of bookkeeping this amount
would be chargeable to extraordinary expenditures,
to be met by loans. Putting the Budget on this basi3
for the last fiscal year, the account would stand
as follows:
ORDINARY RECEIPTS AND EXPENDITURES.

Reduction of the public debt 33.000.000
$117,825,328
The deficiency In extraordinary receipts paid
from surplus of ordinary r«»celpts and from the
free- balance in the Treasury was $75,890.78?.
The items Included under extraordinary ex
penditures are such as might properly be covered
by the issue of bonds instead of paid out of
current revenues. That they could be paid, even
In part, out of current revenues is an exhibition
of financial strength which shows that there is
no deficit except an imaginary one. The reduc
tion of the debt was. of course, only made be
cause it was justified by the large free balance
in the Treasury. In most European governments
the maturity of an old debt would be met by re
funding, leaving the principal undiminished or only
slightly reduced.
How much more careful other governments are
to charge extraordinary expenditures to special
accounts is indicated by a stance at their budgets.
In Great Britain, according to "The Statesman's
Year Book," there were issued in the fiscal year
1»7. to meet expenses under the telegraph act.
£1.380.000: naval works acts, £2.398,000; the public
buildings act, £134.000. and other similar items to
a total of £5.974.750. Tn France, outside the ordi
nary budgets, are comptcs speciaux, or budgets
for special purposes, such as the expedition to
China in 1900. The extra budgetary expenditures
on railways in the twenty-five years ended 1899
amounted to 1,315.000,000 francs, or an average of
BL\tif*i.noo francs a ytar. In Germany the budget
is regularly divided Into ordinary and extraordi
nary expenditures, the latter for the year ended
March 31, 1907. being 213,970.000 marks ($58,000,000).
Russia also divides her budget regularly into or
dinary and extraordinary, tne latter including new
railway construction, which is usually covered by
loans. Moreover, in most European governments
some control is exercised by the finance depart
ment over the budget through the system of a
responsible ministry. It is rare that an appro
priation is made which does not orginate in or
Is not at least approved by the finance department.
Secretary Corteiyou has had under consideration
for some time a thorough revision of the Treasury
statements, with a view to making them repre
sent accurately and in easily understood form the
exact condition of the government's finances.
PAYN STBOXG FOB TAFT.
A Trained Executive He Calls Him
— Praises Boosevelt.
txiu Payn was in New York yesterday afternoon
on bis way with Mrs. Payn from his upstate baili
wick to Ambler. W. Va.. where he is to spend the
summer looking over Ills oil wells. Incidentally.
Mr. Pavn talked of the political situation. First
of all be insisted that the reporter should make it
clear he was strong for Taft.
"About five months ago," said Mr. Payn. "I
called on President Roosevelt, and he introduced
me to Mr. Taft. He Impressed me so favorably
that I called up my old friend. Herman Living
ston who was a member of Mr. Taft's class at
Yale and asked him what sort of chap Taft was
at college. The reply Mr. Livingston gave me was
entirely In accord with what I expected."
Mr. Payn, who has attended every Republican
National Convention since 1564. said that he
thought the best thing President Roosevelt had
done since he first held public office was to in
sist on having Taft as his successor. "Our Presi
dents," he observed, "have been chance hits. That
we have had so many good men is attributable to
our luck. In the case of Mr. Taft we have, a
trained executive. I think that his job as Gov

"Taft showed his ability there, as he has in
every office he has held, lie is a great man, and

Americanism."
Regarding Mr. Roosevelt Mr. Payn remarked:
"I told him not long ago that I took oil my hat
to him as the most adroit, resourceful and capable
politician who ever lived in the White House.
Whatever differences in opinion may have arisen
between Theodora Roosevelt and myself were
passed up four years ago.
••I once said that Theodore Roosevelt didn't have
a drop of Republican blood in his veins. I meant
It when I said it. and I still believe that at that
time I was right in my Judgment. He has changed
Bince and to-day i think he is probably the moat
popular man who has ever teen President of the
United States. Understand, my remark is not a
criticism of former Presidents. What I mean is
that Mr. Roosevelt is close to the average Ameri
can In sentiment and sympathy.
"As for the Democratic convention," lie con

TEDDY BEARS WHITE ELEPHANTS NOW.
Rudolph Fleischer is a manufacturer of Teddy
bears, or at least he was until Mr. Taft was nomi
nated' for President. Now he is plaintiff in a suit
against Stelnfeld Brothers, toy dealers, of No. 630
Broadway. According to Maurice B. A Daniel W.
Blumenthal. counsel for Fleischer. Steinfeld
Brothers follow the political situation closely, and
they figured that President Roosevelt would accept
a third term. Teddy bears would still be a valuable
investment with Mr. Roosevelt in the White House
four years more. Fleischer says they are white
elephants now. He also says Steinfeld Brothers
ordered 625 dozen Teddy bears from htm before the
Republican convention, and that they accepted
twenty dozen, but don't want any more. Fleischer
says they broke their contract, and now he wants

SAIOXJI TO BESIGX.
i
Cabinet Goes with Him — Katsura
May Be Premier.
Tokio. July 3.— The Premier. Marquis Sai^nji, de
cided to tender his resignation some days ago and
requested the acquiescence of the members of hft
Cabinet, each of whom banded him his resignation
All the resignations will be tendered to the Em
peror to-morrow morning. Marquis Katsura, who
was formerly Premier, probably will succeed Mar
quis Saionji. although Admiral Count Tamamoto.
former Minister of Marine. Is a strong eardidate
for the- Premiership. If Marquis Katsura obtains
the place Count Komura. now ambassador In Lon
don, is almost certain to succeed Count Hayashl,
the present Minister of Foreign Affairs. Count
Hayashl probably will succeed Count Komura at
London. It Is uncertain who will get the portfolio
of finance. No one Is anxious to aoeept ft. There
will be no changes in the ministries of marine
and war.
There Is reason to believe that Marquis Saionji
will support Marquis Katsura In the Diet. The
former Is the leader of the Selyuka, which has a
majority \r. the Diet, and Marquis Katsura is the
leader of the Baido CluK which has forty votes.
Such a combination would give Marquis Kat?ura
an absolute majority. It is doubtful If any other
man in the post of Premier could obtain full par
liamentary support.
Tt is said positively In the best Informed circles
that the general policy "* th * government will not
be changed The present programme of retrench
ment will be carried out.
The nominal renson for Marquis Salonjis resig
nation Is ill health. All the members of tIM Cabi
net are strict members of the Selyuka, or Con
stitutionalist party, and It was therefore necessary
that they should resign with him. The real rea
son fo- the resignation of the Premier is under
stood to b« the position taken by Marquis Inouy*.
Secretary of the Home Department, rf-gardlng the
future financial policy of Marquis SalonJl. This
Includes retrenchment In the army and the navy,
the postponement of putl'.c works, a demand for a
sinking fund and the yearly repayment of loans.
Marquis Inouye recently attacked the present gov
emment'n polijy regarding finances. Th!s gave
offence to Marquis Saionji, who decided ;o resign
alone. He consulted with the other ministers and
was by them persuaded to accept the resignations
of all the members or the Cabinet.
One unknown quantity In the situation Is the at
titude of the Kmperor. He may decline to accept
the resignations, but this is considered unlikely.
FEAR OF WAR IN CENTRAL AMERICA.
Rumors Revived That Zelaya and Cabrera
Will Fight for Control.
Mexico City. July 3.— According to advices re
ceived here in unofficial circles from Central Amer
ica, trouble in that region is expected soon. The
Information Ib from apparently trustworthy sour<
but nothing has been given out officially. If pre
dictions contained in letters and t«>!e K rams are well
founded, the work of the recent Washington peace
conference will have been of no avail. The rumors
are to the effect that Guatemala and Salvador are
to align themselves against Nicaragua and Hon
duras, and the outcome of the struggle will ■•*■>■
In the ascendency of Jos* Santos Zelaya, of Nic
aragua, or Eetrada Cabrera, of Guatemala, as the
leading figure in Central American politics. Later
will come the union of the five republics into one
nation. Kither Cabrera or Zelaya will then domi
nate In the new republic.
