Tho strain of trlnl nml conviction for

meat of the case wilt lie In the defini

there did not appear In evidence that

RUMOR THAT COFFEE
WILL ME A BIG DROP
Brokers Hear Stories Thai
Great Lot Will He Dumped
on This Market.
MAY BE WHAT lT. S. SEIZED
OoO.OOO Bug Held in the Ware
house Subject to Agree
ment With Ilrii7.il.
Coffee Importers ond brokers of this
city have been bearing for neveral days
a rumor that a tremendous amount of
coffee Is to be sold on the New York
Those who have heard tho rumor say
that the coffee referred to must be the
9,"0,000 bags which are held by tho
t'nlted Slates Government In the ware
houses of the New York Pock Com
pany pending n decision by the Su
premo Court as to whether or not It
was brought Into this country In viola
tion of the Sherman anti-trust law.
These '.'30.000 bags are supposed to be
owned by the State of Sao Paulo, in
Krazll. The Government suit was de
signed to break the coffeo valorization
scheme Int which tho Draxlllun Gov
ernment and several American und for
eign bankers entered six years ago.
In the opinion of leading cotTeo bro
kers the sale of this stored up breakfast
treasure or a large part of It would
mean a sharp break In the coffeo mar
ket and iap!d decline In price. Au
gustus II. Walbrldge. of S'J Front street
said last night:
"Such a sale as has been rumored
would of course break tho market.
Prices would go down and stay thero
until the next short crop put them up
again. 1 can't believe that the rumor
Is true, for my understanding Is that
the Governments of tho L'nlted States
mid Brazil agreed that only a part of
the seized coffee bbould be sold each
year. If the coffee Is to be sold and
the rumor Is extremely persistent It Is
believed by coffee dealers that the rep
resentatives of the l'nlted States nnd
Hrazll have at last reached an agree
ment to that effect."
Another coffee broker, Slgmund
Hirsch of Nordllnger & Co., 81
Front street, said that Hooding the
market with the vulorlzed coffeo would
cause a decline. Further than that ho
would not comment.
The Federal suit against the so-called
coffee trust. Including Herman Slelckcn
and seven other defendants, was begun
In this city last night. The valoriza
tion agreement restricted the export of
Sao Paulo coffee to 10,000.000 bags a
year, an amount which falls far short
of meeting the world's demands.
It was charged that tho Statu of Sao
Paulo with the cooperation of a syndi
cate of foreign bankers undertook to
buy up and hold back supplies In order
to control the market. It did not suc
ceed In that, so the accusers of "coffee
trust" said, but later the Government of
Krazll ngree.l to prohibit the planting
of more coffee trees. Then the State
Issued $7.",000.000 bonds which tho
nation guaranteed and the bonds were
turned over to on International financial
It was alleged that In carrying out
the plan to keep the Brazilian eoffee
crop In storehouses until prices should
be right coffee was shipped from Hrazll
to a committee of seven, six of whose
members were nominated by bond
holders of the syndicate and ono by tho
llnizlllan Government. Then the coffee.
It was charged, was warehoused In Lon
don. Ilrussels, Paris, Berlin nnd New
York In quantities nnd under conditions
dictated by this committee. It was to
be fed out to the markets of the world
nt tho most advantageous times and
under conditions which would assure
the best prices.
Tho retail price of coffee, so It was
said, rose from 40 to 60 per cent,
becauso of this "corner," nnd tho In
creased cost to the public wan cli
mated at $33,000,000 a year. It w.-n
charged that n huge International
monopoly had got control of tho coffeo
supply of the world.
Tho defendants In the Government
suit maintained that tho O.IO.OOO bags
of coffeo in tho Now York Dock Com
pany's warehouses were tha property
of the Hrazlllan Government and there,
fore not In tho jurisdiction of any
United States court.
It wan brought out that the amount
of coffee to bo sold In 1909 under tho
alleged "conspiracy agreement" was
500,000 bags. In 1910 was CG0.000 bngs,
In 1911 600,000 bogs, and so on. tho
amount to be sold increasing f.0,000
bags n year until the coffee should run
Originally It was alleged 2,000,000 bngs
of valorized coffeo was stored In New
The coffee valorization scheme wns
tho result of many years' study of
growing conditions In Hrazll and tho
world's market conditions by Herman
Slelckcn, who for thirty-five years waa
Identified with the Hrazlllan trade. Ha
believed that coffee was one world staple
which could be stabilized. He said that
valorization was necessary to save
Hrazll from ruin becauso of overpro
duction. Ha contended (that doubling
tho price of coffoe was no more of ft
burden to the United States than tho
doubling and trebling of tho prlco of
American cotton had been to the rest
of the world.

Prologue In Ills Old (inthrn.
After singing the prologue to "Pag
tlaccl," In evening clothes instead of tlm
usual costume of tho clown V'onlo, at
the Metropolitan opera House Satur
day afternoon, Antonio Scottl spent a
considerable part of yesterday making
In the first place, Mr. Pcotll said he
thought tho new costume would lm
INirt novelty to the performance, nnd
in the second place lie had good au
thority for the change.
The authority Is from two sources.
Hattlstlnl, n famous Italian singer who
made, a reputation by his delivery of
this prologue, Invariably sang It In
evening clothes. And Victor Mnurcl,
who suggested to I.eoncuvnllo that a
prologue be composed for tho opera. Is
of the opinion that the pnrt should not
bo sung In tho costume of u. clown but
In evening dress.
Of course It was nnnnylng that the
changn to costume after the prologue
had been sung should bavo delayed the
curtain for two minutes. Hut, ns Mr.
Scottl said, that couldn't bo helped.
"It only took me three minutes nnd
twenty seconds to change to the clown's
frock," he said.
It also was pointed out by the bary
tone that nn nctor should not appear
on the stugo In a clown's dress to slug
philosophy, und that In n mensuro Is
what the prologue is.
".4mohIo." said Mr. Scottl, "Is n poor
simpleton with a big heart, and It mixes
his character nil up to have him appear
beforo the real performance begins nnd
sing the thoughts of n philosopher."
New York opera goers probably will
not have another opportunity to hear
Scottl sing the prologue to "Pngllaccl"
In evening dress this season, though
the opera will be given again. Ho kiuI

This news comes from one of Mrs.
Vanderbllt's friends .vho Is herself
greatly Interested In tho work of the
organization. No details of the trust
fund endowment have boon rettled yet,
but they will bo taken up us soon as
the building Is under construction.
The first Intimation which Mrs. Van
derbllt gave that she would establish a
homo for tho Dig Slsteis camo last
January, but since then nothing has
been revealed of her proposed benefac
tion. It 1 understood, however, by
those Interested with her In tho work
ot resculn. young girls from bad sur
roundings that she proposes to dupli
cate tho farm which .is given to the
Hlg Brothers last year. This farm with
Its seventeen room house Is near Tren

Two largo sites nre understood to Iks
under consideration fur tho home, ono
In Westchester and tho other on Long
Island. The latter is supposed to be
regarded tho mora favorably and work
Is expectetf to begin thero next week.
The Big Sisters have already had one
home, which was presented by William
IC. Yanderbllt, Jr. This was u largo
farm house on his estate, Deepdale,
on Long Island, and was fitted up for
the girls. Tho house wus used during
the summer, but In September it wns
destroyed by fire and Mrs. Yanderbllt
rented a house somo distance away.
She had hoped to rebuild at Deepdale,
but Mr. Vanderbllt's Intention to dis
pose of tho estate prevented this.
With so many girls coming under tho
guiding hand of the Big 81sters, Mrs.
Yanderbllt declared that the work had
been so successful that tho organiza
tion should be put upon a permanent
basts, and although plans have been
discussed, strict secrecy has been main
tained. Mrs. Vandcrbllt was In the Children's
Court Saturday with Mrs. M. W. Evans,
who la in chargo of tho investigators.
Sho refused to talk about her plans.
Other members of tho organization
also refused to talk last night, but some
of them admitted largo plans wore In
tho nlr which would bo announced nt
tho annual meeting. Mrs. Evuna said
that Mrs. Yanderbllt wus opposed to
tho plan of giving wide publicity to
tho work of tho Big Sisters, preferring
to do tho work quietly.
Mrs. Vnnderbllt became Interested In
the Idea of tho Big Sisters about two
years ago. Sho associated with her
self many other prominent women, In
cluding Mrs. William May Wright, Mrs.
I.owls Morrison and Mrs. Wlllard D.

Mrs. Yanderbllt has restricted tho
work to Protestant girls only. Whllo

It Is lielleved to be duo to tho fact that

Constantinopuc, Dec. 1. The Burning
of the armistice between Turkey and
the allies did not toko place at 2
o'clock this afternoon, as expected, ow
ing to tho non-arrival of the Greek
delegate. It Is now expected that tha
armistice will be signed next Tuesday.
No official announcement has aa yet
been mHo as to the terms, but It la
understood that the main points are:
First Trie armistice Is to last four
Second The armies aro to remain la
their present positions.
Third Tho besieged towns (Adrlan
ople and Scutari) aro to be rcvlctualled
Fourth The armistice covers tha
whole of European Turkoy.
A report from Sofia says the allies
will demand an indemnity ot $340,000,
000, but this can't ba confirmed.
Although Adrianoplo is close pressed
by her besiegers, whose trenches are
within few hundred yards of her
outer fortifications, and although the
Bulgars are confldont that they could
have worn the garrison into surrender
even If they foiled to rout the stubborn
defenders by storm, (the fact that tho
Bulgarians were ready to make so lib
eral a concession Is taken by diploma
tlsts as a sign that itho allies and tha
Turks are agreed upon one thing, and
that Is that they must each yield a little

London, Dec 2. AShmead Bartlett
in a despatch from Constantinople to
the Daily Teltoraph aaya the new that
Adrianoplo l included in tho proposed
armlsUoe and that the garrieon is to be
revtotualled dally comes aa a complete
and agreeable surprise. This oonceesloa
by the Balkan representatives Is re
garded aa a proof of their genuine de
sire to arrange a lasting peace aa early
It Is considered that the future ne
gotiations are far more likely to ena
in a peaceful eettlement because the
negotiators will not be embittered by a
continuance of the struggle around
Adrianoplo and will not be weighing
each word according to the struggle
there taking a favorable or unfavorable
"Thero aro several polnta on which
we aro completely In the dark," says
Mr. Bartlett. "For example, upon whom
does the onus fall or revlctualllng
Adrianoplo every dayT Surely not on
the Bulgarians, who havo their haada
full In feeding their own widely ecat
tered troops. But ontho other hand how
can tho Turks do It? Nothing cam ba
obtained from a country which has been
devastated by the passage through It
of two gseat armies. Therefore all the
supplies to reach Adrlanople must bo
from Constantinople. If those are eent
by road tho first day's supply can hardly,
arrive before tho expiration of tho
armistice. Therefore In the absence ot
certain Information It must be assumed
that the Bulgarians will give tha ua
of the railway aa far aa Adrlanople to
yie Turkish general staff. l Is raj '
