Lonpon, Oct. 5. Europe awaits hourly
word that the war In the Balkans has
begun. Tho British Mediterranean fleet
has been ordered to start for the Levant.
The cruiser Weymouth, nccordlng to .1

Igned a peace pact Inclined diploma

hies, They renson thnt with the Italian
war off her hands Turkey would enter
with zeal Into a war after her own lik
ing on her own borders. Later, how
ever, word was received that the peace
overtures were called off.
Continued rumors of severe fighting
near Albania, where the Bulgarians had
crossed their borders nnd attacked tho
Turks, roused tho capitals of tho in
volved countries, but could not be v.in
flrmed. It Is known, however, that the
troops of Turkey nnd the Italkan Stall's
are operating very near ono another
and an encasement may be exported
at any moment.
Whatever optimism Is felt as to the
outcome of tho complicated affairs In
the Balkans Is based on tho fact that
In the first place tho little States will
have great difficulty In raising funds
from the banks of Kurope for the fi
nancing of any war against Turkey
nnd in the second that the bigger coun
tries look with dlf-appruwil upon such
n war. France Is urging some definite
action on the part of the Towers look

the railroad station at Westport und
laid on the platform, a few yards east
of the wrecked Pullman cars which
now. eighteen hours utter the wreck,
were still smouldering.
A curious crowd deserted the wreck
and surged upon the platform where
the men stood about the dead. In the
van of tho onrushlng crowd was a
moving picture operator with his
machine.
Francis Oarvan now saw the moving
picture man prepare to take pictures
of tin- undertaker's assistants carry
ing the coffins onto the platform.
"If Miu do that," cried Mr. riarvan
to the picture man. "I'll smash your
machine. These ore my dead."
The picture man, unabashed, assumed
a belligerent attitude. Mr. Oarvun re
peated bis threat to break the machine,
whereupon Mr. Kavaunugh went to tho
moving picture photographer and per
suaded him not to try to take the pic
tures. The party then boarded n special truln
which left Westport at 11:31 A. M. to
take the bodies and the men nrcotn

Lieut. John F. Stanton of tho Elizabeth
street polloo station, who was tho head '
of thn old Investigating bureau which
examined candidates for tho Police De
partment after they had been recommend
ed by tho Civil Service Commission, was
suspended on charges by Commissioner
Waldo yestorday.
After Commissioner Wuldo took ollleo
Stanton was removed from his place as
lieud of tho bureau nnd tho bureau was
abolished. Htanton was ono of tho wit
nesses beforo tho Curran Aldermanlc
investigating committee and testilied in
a way that was considered damaging to
the administration.
The offence for which Stanton is sus
Knded is alleged to have been committed
nearly three years ago, but no explana
tion was given yesterday for tho charged
being brought against him at this time.
Commissioner Wuldo said he had nothing
to say about the matter. Stuntoti's record
could not be obtained at Headquarters
either
Tin" chargw was set forth in an affidavit
which was filed with Chief Inspector
Schmittberner yesterday. In this affi
davit Richard V. Oliver, n detective ser
geant of the first grade, attached to the
detective bureau, says that Stanton at
tempted to extort '.'50 from him on the
ground that it would lead to his appoint
ment us a patrolman, This was In "Febru
ary, 1009. when Oliver was a taxlcab
chauffeur
Stanton at that time was in charge of
Die bureau of Investigation of candidates
for thn position of patrolman.
According, to Oliver, a meeting between
Stanton and himself was arranged by
Thomas 1. (Jlbney, a friend of hN, who was
employed at Hroadway and Forty-sixth
street. This meeting took place In the
entrance to tho Empire Theatre Stanton
is alleged to have said that there was n
good deal of question about Oliver's ap
pointment to t he force, heoaUM he had once
been arrest ed for assault.
The affidavit further stiles that a meet
ing was arranged for 9 o'clock that morn
ing nt the Park Avenue Hotel. There
Oliver was to pay S3.10 to a man who would
introduce himself as Hurry. He wa as

(leorge F. Morrison, general manager
of the Harrison division of the com

was an exceptional woman and that
the officers of the company wete very
sorry to lose her services.
For many yeuis Miss Stevens has de
voted her spare time and much of her
earnings to charitable work. Then her
father, brother and mother died, tho last
named a year ngo, leaving her without
family. This Is thought by her friends
to have played a part In her final de

While connected with the llnrrlson
plant she found opportunity to do much
work of a philanthropic sort among
the fi.OOO employees. She kept herseU
posted on the affairs of tho families of
many of the workmen, helped them
financially nnd otherwise In times of
sickness and took upon herself the re
sponsibility of supporting two families,
the heads of which contracted tubercu

girl from an orphan asylum und adopted
her. The child Is now In school. She
assisted also In the education of a num

EXPKLLKl) FROM FRANCE?
Flint's What Officials Think,
hut He Says Thnt lie Was
Not Put Out.
As thn steamship France, of the French
Line, ranm up tho hay yesterday morning
tho first cabin passengers were asked to
nssemblo in tho saloon and give their
names to tho Immigration inspector.
Tho routine of Inspection went on as usual
until n slim young man, carefully dressed
in brown and with a budding blond mus
tache that matched his blond hair, an
nounced himself as Ludovlo Pignatelli.
You're Prlnco Pignatelli, are you not?"
asked tho Inspector, and when the slim
young man bowed, added:
"Step aside, please. I'll sen you later."
The passengers knew that the slim
young man was Prlnco Ludovlo Pigna
telli d'Arngon. who has been twice a
visitor in New York and on both occasions
added to the sparklo of tho town. They
watched with interest when the inspector,
having finished his list, went back to
question Prince Pignatelli. nn'd were
mildly surprised when tho Prince, instead
of going from the ship to the Uitz-Carlton
as he had planned, was taken to Ellis
Island to await the decision of the De
partment of Comtnerco and I-abor on
his desirability as a visitor.
"That's the man who shot himself
because an American heiress wouldn't
marry him. nnd they say ho was asked
to leave France because of some gambling
trouble." was the word that went round
while Prince Pignatelli argued with the
immigration officers and insisted that
his detention was all "a mistake, I assure
you.
Jules S, Bache. the banker of 12 Broad
way, who was on the pier, was appealed
to by ono of tho (assengers to help the
Prince. Mr. Bachc said that he could only
identify Prince Pignatelli, having met
him abroad and say that he did not be
lieve that there was the slightest chance
of tho Prince becoming a publio charge.
A representative of the P.iti-Carlton,
where Prince Pignatelli was a guest a
year aco did his best to secure'the Prince's
release, but the immigration inspectors
only shook their heads. Ther mtd orders
to detain "Ltulivko Pignatelli" and meant
to do so
The Prince's troubles go !ck to
despatch from Paris printed here on
Septemlwr 29 saying that he hod been
J told thnt his presence in France was un
. welcomo. He had lieen charged with run
ning a gambling house on the Avenue
I M.ic.Mahoii. When the immigration in
i spector began questioning tho Prince on
shipboard the llrst question lie asked
I was: "Is it true that you have Iwen ex-
, polled from France.'
Prince Pignatelli got quite pale, but he
answered;
"Xo, it is not true I. with other foreign
ers in France, started a club n card club
After we orgutil7.iHl, a law was imssed
prohibiting foreigners from organizing
clubs where cards were played. The
club broke up. In thnt way it might be
said that I was put out of the club, but
certainly I was not expelled from the
country. All that happened two years
ago."
The Prince was questioned next alxiut
the attempted suicide. He denied it, but
a moment later, when he was asked by
a lejiorter If it .was not true that he had
'shot himself last July because of dls
, appointment in his suit for the baud of
, Miss Mary L. Duke, daughter of Mr. and
..Mrs Benjamin Duke of New ork and
Durham, X. C, he replied:
"Xo! No! It was liecauso of another
I affair My imrettts wanted me to tnurry
a young woman not to my taste. I was
in great trouble with my family."
'I hen the Prince pointed to his left side,
1 saying:
"The bullet went there, but my aim, it

Washington, Oct. 4. Theodore Itoose
velt left the witness chair late this
afternoon after having testified for flv
hours beforo tho Clapp, Investigating
committee.
if the committee expected to draw
any very dutrtjglng admissions from tho
ex-President they failed. He ran things
In pretty much his own way. nnd tho
Impression nt the end was that he bod
helped himself considerably In regard
to controversy over both the Hnrrlman
and Standard Oil contributions to his
1904 campaign.
Mr. Iloosevclt produced a new docu
ment In the Hnrrlman episode. It was
a telegram sent by the railroad man to
William Loeb, Jr., Mr. Hoosevelt's sec
retary, on October 20, 1904, asking Mr.
Loeb to call him on the long distance
telephone. It was during this telephone
conversation, according to Mr. Iloose
vclt, that Hnrrlman asked that Mr.
Itoosevelt help htm In the New York
State campaign nnd suggested that he
go to Washington to sec the President
on tho subject.
Col. Itoosevelt contended thnt Mr.
Harrlman's visit was the result of this
telcphono conversation and not, as Har
rlmari himself has said, of Mr. Hoose
velt's own Invitation. Mr. Hnrrlman
has charged that- ert; Roosevelt JlT'that'"
meeting Importuned him to raise $250,-
000 to save the national ticket In New
York Ssate.
Mr. Itoosevelt also explained why it
was posclblo that the Standard Oil
Company may have contributed $100,000
to his campaign without him having
any definite knowledge of the gift. He
said that Mr. Bliss, the treasurer of
the National Committee, seemed to re
sent nny Inquiry on his part in regard
to the sources of the cumpalgn fund
und Mr. Roosevelt mndo no attempt to
Inquire Into the details.
Col. Itoosevelt declared that he
emerged from the 1904 campaign with
out any pledge or promise, expressed
or Implied, on account of campaign
contributions. It seemed to be news
to Mr. Itoosevelt that 73 per cent, of
the contributions in that campaign were
from corporations.
He was greatly surprised to learn
within tho last day or two that J. P.
Morgan had contributed $100,000. He
had never suspected that George J.
Gould had contributed $100,000. He
knew that II. C. Frlck was a friend of
Ills nnd had volunteered to make good
a part of the Standard Oil- contribution
If It was returned, but the fact that Mr.
Frlck had actually given $100,000 also
was news to the Colonel.
Col, Itoosevelt paid his resperts to
Judge Parker In no unccrtnln terms,
handled John D. Archbold more" harshly
than he has In any previous statement,
called upon the I'nlted States Semite
to hurl Boles Penrose from that body,
and told the Investigating committee
that It was confronted with tho duty
of calling upon Charles D. miles, Mr.
Taft's manager, to prove the charges
that he has been making In regard to
the size of tho Itoosevelt pre-convcntlon
campaign fund or forever to hldo his
face In shnme. He said anybody was a
"fool or a crook" who expected to get
anything from him for a campaign con
tribution. Miller. Willi Hi-tut trp.
Col. Itoohovelt entered tho committee
room with his characteristic brisk step
and promptly mounted tho llttlo platform
on which the witness chair had been
placed, ..
Tho tail end of n long cheer by those
outside was rolling down the corridor
of tho Senate office building as tho Colo
nel raised his hand to take the oath. Ho
seemed pleased at tho crowd that had
turned out to see him. Ho udjusted
his eyeglasses, beamed at the committee
and waved his hand with a smilo at sev
eral friends in tho room.
Tho Colonel woro a steel gray sack

nnd a blue four-in-hand tio. Mr. Itoose

Ono of these latters was written to George
It. Sheldon on September 21, 1WW, when
Mr. Sheldon was raising a campaign tiutd
for Mr. Taft. This letter told what Mr.
Sheldon should and should not do in run
ning tho financial end of Mr. Taft's cam
paign. It liegins in this way:
