The Federal Grand Jury In this city

roads. E. II. Fits: Hugh, vice-president
of the Orand Trunk, was questioned by

Wlillp admitting that the postponed

attorneys preserved the secrecy which
surrounded yesterday's proceedings be
fore tho Urand Jury. It Is said that
no other witnesses were questioned, but
It Is known that Vlce-l'rwldent Thomas
E. Byrne of the New Haven Is to be
among the next to testify.
The nppeal for Federal Intervention
from tho Governor of Rhode Island
nfler the cessation of construction In
New England on the part of the Grand
Trunk, followed by a resolution In Con
gress that the Investigation be made.
Is responsible for this new effort to de
termine whether or not the Slier man
anti-trust law has been lolated,
The Grand Jury Inquiry, originally set
for November "1, was postponed by
Attorney-General Wlckersham In order
that the Federal authorities might avail
themselves of the offer by olllclals of
both roads to submit their books and
other records. The Inspection made by
tho special agents of the Department of
Justice proved insutllclent. In the ffort
to lay before the Grand Jury the true
conditions It Is understood that most of
the prominent nfttclaW of each toad
have been placed under subpo-na. If
violations of the anti-trust law can be
established indictments will be handed
down. No civil Investigation Is pro
posed at this time.
When the December panel of the
Grand Jury was sworn In yesterday
morning by Judge Hough In his court

CRIMINAL ACTION IN VIEW.
Xappoiltlon Strennthened by lllaenn
llnnance nf WaahlnMnn Probe.
Washington, Deo. 3. While officials
of tho Department of Justice declined
to-day to comment on tire Grand Jury
proceedings in Now York Involving the
Now Haven railroad, it is apparent that
they lieliovei they havo ground for criminal
action. The Attorney-General main
tained unusual reticence In regard to the
proceedings, but one official in tho De
partment said it would lio reasonable, to
Infer that the Government in submitting
the matter to the Grand Jury believed it
had a case.
The previous Grand Jury Inquiry into
the alleged New Haven-Grand Trunk
deal was instituted chiefly for the purpose
of Rotting information in regard to the
agreement between the roads which
resulted in tho discontinuance hy the
Grand Trunk of work on Its Now England
extensions, Mr. Wickershum discontinued
that investigation because officials of tho
railroad came forward with oilers of full
information and becauso ho feared tho
appearance of officials of tho Now Haven
railroad before the Grand Jury might
result In giving them immunity.
Since that Inquiry was discontinued
Mr. Wickersham has gone over with tho
greatest earn all of tho ovidence and
records in tho case, and tho renewal of
the proceedings before tho Grand Jury
Is taken aa conclusive evidence that lie
haa made discoveries which in his opinion
warrant criminal proceedings.
It wa reported to-day that subpoenas
have been sent out from the Department
of Justice for high railroad official to
testify beforo the Now York Grand Jury.

In cunt t to-day on various charges.
Thice women who hid themselves In a
box In the organ loft at one of the.
Chancellor's meetings and created a (lis-'

Imprisonment. As they were led from
the court room they shouted defiantly:
"No surrender; we'll protest In prison!"
Another woman who had smashed a
window In uu automobile In which she
supposed Mr. Lloyd George was riding
demanded that the Chancellor be called
las a witness. The demand was refused'
'and she was sentenced to n tine of 40
'shillings i $10) or ten days Imprison
mnent. This woman clung to the dock
I after she had been sentenced and had
to no reinoveu ny torce ntnui cries or
"shame" from the other suffragettes In
the court room.
London, Dec. 3. Despite the vigilance
of the police the suffragettes are again
pouring lluld Into the Htreet mull boxes.
They poured paint Into a wall box In
the Threadneedle street post office to
day. This office Is almost next door to
the Hank of England. Considerable
damage was done to the letters and
documents In the box.
Last night a sticky fluid was pouted
Into a mall box on Down street, Picca
dilly. The vandalism was carefully
timed to catch tho bulk of the letters
from clubland. In addition to pouring
the nasty fluid Into the box thn culprit
also spiked the keyhole and the services
of a locksmith were necessary befnre the
box could be opened.
LIBEL SUIT FOLLOWS
Huron (irnves Sues Helative,
Lord Calloway, in British
Hiirh Court. i
.en.f Cdblt fltipatrh to Tst Sin.
London, Dec. 3. There was an un
usual libel suit before Justice Darling
In tln High Court of Justice to-day.
The case grew out of a Yukon mining
venture which turned out to be a fall-
lire. Baron Graves sued his relative,
Lord Galloway, because of certain accu
sations which the latter asserted were
The story as told In court showed that
since lHOl Lord Graves had Invested
from $200,000 to $2f.0.000 In the Lust
Chance gold mine on Hie advice of
"Cupt." Cole, who was on the spot.
Capt. Fyers. a nephew of Lord Gallo
way, became Interested In the mine and
offered to raise some $."0,000 which was
needed for "new machinery." He put
up $10,000 himself and Jin.otiO more with
a note which was guaranteed by Baron
Graves. The latter eventually had to
pay the note, plus Interest. This, It was
stated, seriously embarrassed Lord
Graves financially and ho wus com
pelled to raise the money on the family
estates. He assigned his claim on Capt.
Fers to his son Clarence as security
for the money raised on the estates.
The son Clarence pressed this claim
and Capt. 1'Vers was forced Into bank
ruptcy In 1911. At that time Capt. Fy
ers made counter charges about fraud
ulent representations having been made
about the mine, whereupon his uncle,
Lord Galloway, took the matter up and
wrote a letter to Clarence, the son of
Baron Graves, to the effect that his
father in 1302 liiul recommended the
mine to Capt. Fyers, when he (Baron
Graves) had knovv,n since the previous
August that It was a "dicky concern."
Lord Galloway added that If the action
was pressed the plaintiff, Clarence,
would never receive a penny and a pub
lic scandal would result from the reve
lations. As a sequel to the suit and the corre
spondence Baron Graves and Lord Gal
loway, who had been very friendly for
forty years and were trustees of each
other's marriage settlement, eac)i re
tired from his trusteeship.
At to-day's hearing Baron Graves tes
tified that "Capt." Cole tlrst offered him
a share In the ownership of the mine for
$10,000. Then Cole cabled from the
Klondike that the mine was "very rich."
Graves paid this sum In the expectation
of getting $30,000 back In a few months.
In expectation of this sum he took nn
expensive country house In Scotland,
but he only got $7,600 back from his
Investment and his financial troubles
The case was adjourned until to
morrow. ROBS 20 HOMES IN TWO NIGHTS.

GEN. SICKLES KISSES
HIS WIFE; SALE OFF
Pecoiiciliiitlon Effected, Friends
Siiy, Though War Veteran
Doesn't Admit It.
MHS. SICKIiKS PAYS $3,500
Sheriff llnrhurs;er Hasn't Heard
of Any Change, lint Ad
journs Sale to Dec. 12.
It looks lis If the much postponed sale
of Gen. Daniel E. Slckles's relics to sat
isfy his debts, which was to have tnken
place to-day but which Sheriff Har
burger has adjourned to December 12,
Is called off for good. The General and
Ills wife, long separated, have made up
and she has promised to pay the $!i,000
which Gen. Sickles owes to the Bank of
the Metropolis. It was said last night
that Mrs, Sickles had already given
$3,500 to the bank olllclals and said she
would cable to Madrid for the rest.
Gen. Sickles, now S7 years oldslood
yesterday In Ills home at 23 Fifth ave
nue surrounded by heaped up confusion.
His pictures had been taken down, his
statues removed from their pedestals,
his rui;. and hangings had been rolled,
numbered and tugged for the sale. To
every question us to whether or not
his wife had finally effect! d u reconcilia
tion nnd averted the catastrophe he
"No, no; I won't have It. That Is
charily. I will accept no charity."
But John Delahunty, attorney for the
Bank of the Metropolis, said that the
basis of an agreement had been reached
and that there would be no sale. The
explanation came to Titu Sun from
an old friend of the General.
"On Monday night," said this friend,
"Mrs. Sickles, who lives at the Hotel
Marlton on West Eighth street with nel
son Stanton, culled on Gen. Sickles at
the General's request. When she stepped
Into the hall there was the General, bal.
anclng himself on his crutches. He
cried, 'Carolina' o Carolina!" embraced
her and kissed her on both cheeks.
"She told him she was prepared to
shield him from every trouble due to
his tangled business affairs. This morn
ing she drew $3,500, her entire balance,
from her bank and put It tip as an
earnest of her Intention to pay off the
Judgment due the Bank of the Metropo
lis, She was treated by the oftlcers of
the bank as If It was not necessary for
her to mako good her promise to cable
to Spain for more money. In effect the
property In Gen. Slckles's house has
been conveyed to her. so there Is no
longer any danger thut the General
will lose It."
Mrs. Sickles was nut. .a,t home lust
night. Friends' In "the neighborhood
said that ,xlie had talked very happily
with them, saying:
"The General cares more for his
home and his war mnmentos than for
anything else In the world. I do not
care for the house or for those things
They are for him while he lives. I want
him to be happy. He sent for me and
I went to sen him with my son, Stanton.
The result Is that to-morrow his pic
tures will be put back on the walls nnd
the house will be put In order ugnln.
"They will hang up again the two mir
rors In his room. We brought them
from Madrid, though I did not want
them. Once a man who sold some of the
things In our house told me that he had
sold the mirrors too a great mistake. 1
asked him who bought them and he
said, 'The bulltlghter's wife,' I did not
want the bullllghter'a wife to havo my
mirrors. 1 told the man to give the
money back to her. So we got the pic
tures again and brought them to New
York. That was nearly forty years ago."
Mrs. Sickles said thut In the Monday
night Interview Gen. Sickles asked their
sou Stanton to call again yesterday
morning. It was said last night that
Stanton kept tho engagement and that
Gen. Sickles repeatedly expressed de
light over the reconciliation and felt
that his troubles were ended.
Sheriff Hnrburger was sadly puzzled
when all this was relnted to him last
night. He said that the General only
yrstcrday morning had telephoned him
thanks for nil the Sheriff was trying to
do to save the relics nnd said nothing
about nn understanding having been
reached with Mrs. Sickles.
"As for Mr. Dclamunty," said the
Sheriff, "you may quote mo as saying
that )te knows nothing nbout this mat
ter except what I told Ijlm this morn
ing. The bank has not notified me that
tho Judgment Is ready to bo satisfied
without a Sheriff's sale. I said to Mr.
Delahunty: 'I am going to postpone
tho sale again because It Is within my
power as Sheriff of this county to ex
tend tho tlmo to the limit of tho sixty
days prescribed by law."'

I'KACK TALKS IN LONDON
Hritisli Cdpiliil Ih Chost'ii for
the Fori lictmi in o
Confi'i'PiH'es. ltetuil Cable tletpatelt to Thy. St
Constantinople, Dec. 3. It was of
ficially announced here at 10:10 P. M
thnt an armistice had Just been slstl? I
nt Baghchetsh by the representative
of the Turks on one side and Bulgarli,
Servla nnd Montenegro on the other.
Greece, the stumbling block all through
the negotiations, refused to sign the
armistice. She has been told by the
other allies that she may continue the
war alone if she so desires.
Although no details have been an
nounced In regard to the terms of ths
armistice, they are said on good au
thority to be as follows:
First The armistice Is tn Inst four
Second The troops arc to occupy
their present positions with the ground
between them neutral.
Third The besieged cities are to ha
revlctualled dally and the blockades nn
the Kgean and Adriatic are tn be
Fourth The armistice Is to cover alt
of European Turkey.
The fate of Adrianople, the crux of
the peaoc "iira.irtlntIons, is not yet
known. A despatch from Mustapha
Pasha says that the Bulgarian Commander-in-Chief
sent two officers with
a white flag to the beleaguered city
to demand Its surrender. He promised
that the lives and property of every
one In the town would be safe and that
tho capitulation would be made on
What the Turkish answer was could
not be learned here up to a late hour
At 7 o'clock to-night the Turkish
Council of Ministers had completed Its
considerations of fresh proposals from
Servla, Montenegro and Bulcnrla, and
liad sent new Instructions to Its repre
sentatives at Baglichetsli. Then for n
while nothing more was heard from
the representatives In the little neutral
town until there rnnie the olllclal an
nouncement of the signing of the ar
mistice by Turkey nnd three of ths
allies at nearly 11 o'clock.
The conferences began at 1l o'clock
this morning nnd It was plain nt tho
very beginning that Greece nlone stood
In the way of tho signing of the armis
tice. Her representatives had heard
that Athens was Indignant over what
they believed would be the granting of
advantageous terms to the whipped
Turk. They said that tho Greek people
felt that Janina should be nut rendered
tn them and that the Turks on thi
Islands of Chios and Mltylcno should
also give up their arms rather than
merely march away, as they might do
under the terms of the nrmlstlce. But
most of all the Greeks were Indignant
over the proposal that all besieged towns
should bo dally rcvlctunllcd during the
armistice, which, although not an
nounced. Is supposedly for fourteen
They thought that If the siege of
Adrianople was thus raised voluntarily
and tho Bulgars deprived themselves
of what was practically In their erasp
they would be called upon to sacrifice
some of the land they had wrcstrd from
tho Turks aa a reward to thn Bul
garians. Bo tho Greek representatives, armed
with these InstrucUons from their Gov
ernment, came beforo the delegates and
said very firmly that they would sign
no such armistice.
Servla, Montenegro and Bulgaria
thereupon told the Greeks that If thsy
would not strike hands with their at-
lies and were Insistent upon holding out
they could tight on. But under these cir
cumstances they must fight alone. Tha
three Balkan States felt, said their rep
resentatives, that It was time for aa
armistice and that It should be signed.
It Is known that the Bulgars were
very anxious to have the surrender of
Adrianople In their hands before they
clgned the armistice and the word from
Mustapha Pasha that they demanded
tho surrender of the beleaguered town
to-day would indicate that they hava '
made one last attempt to take Adria
nople before their representatives put
pen to paper.
A telegram has been received here
from the Lieutenant Governor of
Tchcsmo that on Sunday ond Monday
there was heavy fighting between tho
Greeks and Turks on tho Island of Chios.
It would seem that the Greeks there
have not had the success that they ex
pected, and this may be another reason
