M. De Blowif z Discusser the Dan
ger of a European Conflict.
GREEK DUPLICITY FEARED
Secret Understanding "With Russia
Said to ISxIst An Appeal to the
Czar "Will Follow it the Powers
Persist In Coercion "Why Little
Greece Stands Firm. ,t
New Tork, March 18. M. de Blowitz,
the noted .European correspondent, in a
special Paris cable to the World, 'reviews
at length the Cretan situation, uud points
out wherein the menace to European peace
really lies. lie says:
Timeo Danaos (1 fear the Greeks).
The thing that has prolonged the Cretan
imbroglio and what may prolong it btlll
further is that since the original entrance
of the Greeks upon the scene no one has
takenaccurate account of the secretcauseB
which Induced King George to lling him
beir o imprudently and eo veuturesomely
into the melee. At the outset everyone
supposed it was .Russia which might have
encouraged the king, and this rumor was
not without foundation, for if it was not
the czar it was the dowager empress, and
such bupport us this was important enough
to Justify the audacity and confidence of
the king. But it has since become known
that the dowager empress found herself
opposed hy the superior will which now
governs Russia. Yet there is general sur
prise at the resistance which the dowager
empress has met and still meets.
Nicholas II ib actuated, in the opin
ion of all men whose opinion is worth
having, by his loyalty to engagements
taken, by his obligations, by his sense
of duty, and by the sense of hib rights.
Moreover, as will be seen, it is only
thus that can be explained what we
now behold. Engagements which Rus
sia has taken, according to the most
authoritative sources, is to guarantee
"the integrity of tire Ottoman empire."
Such an engagement or treaty implies
obligations and rights to be defended,
not only by diplomacy by moral suasion
but also by force by land and sea
power for which it is to be repaid by
certain compensation, all the more menac
ing as they are quite unknown.
This treaty, if it were forced to be
put into execution, is un immense danger
Ru-ta itself is not yet ready to real
ize it, and the question arises for her
whether France, if need be, would march
in agreement with her, a point hich at
present has not been either touched upon
Turkey dreads its realization, as it sees
that the treaty, if carried out, would mean
its ruir in Europe. As to the apprehension
of the other powers, I need not Insist, or
it would be inevitably the signal of a gen
eral conflagration. None, then, of the
great powers desires tint Rus-ia .shouldbe
obliged to carry out its engagements with
Turkey or that Turkey should be obliged to
have recourse to these engagements.
A single power may have dreamed of get
ting some advantage from that treaty and
that power is Greece.
It lias done all of which it was capable
to bring about a war. It has invaded a
friendly state in time of peace. Tuikey
has remained motionless. The powers have
intervened to cry out "Integrity of the Ot
toman Empire' a ciy uttered by Russia.
It is at Russia's impulse that Uiey notify
Greece of this intention to maintain the
integrity of the empire. A Greek torpedo
boat firCd on a Turkisli vessel. It was a
casus belli. Turkey made no representation.
Had the casus belli been recognized there
would have ensued the inevitable realiza
tion of the treaty, a realization most un
timely for Russia, disquieting for Turkey,
dangerous to the Franco-Russian alliance
and a provocation to the rest of Europe.
Greece is arming on the frontier. She
is putting Turkish patience there to the
most fngbtrul test, yet Turkey is un
expectedly patient and Greece seems to be
saying to Europe: "If you do not wish to
give me the carte blanc-ln Crete I will
let loose the dogs of war against Turkey
and oblige that power to make the war
geuer.nl by her appeal to Russia and to
the treaty uniting them."
To all this, as bald M. Hanotaux in the
French Senate, Europe has. replied: "No.
not war, with the rupture of European con
cert, but peace, with that concert intact."
Such, then, is the explanation of what is
now going on. As for a conclusion, If I
had been asked for it soveral'days ago
I should have been embarrassed: today I
am less so. Something has taken place of
great and painful importance.
Since then public sentiment in Europe
has greatly changed. Indignation has been
spread abroad. It Is partly under influence
of these impressions that the Trench Par
liament has just adopted the policy of co
ercion accepted by the French government,
and at the moment of writing coercion has
begun. Europe thinks thereby to oblige
Greece to recall old Col. Tassos and his
soldiers. 1 am convinced, therefore, that
Greece will finally yield, but I dqubt very
much whether it will do so a promptly as
is generally supposed.
Col Vassos, I believe, will retire into
the interior of the island and there will
hold out as long as possible. To dislodge
lilm would require 15,000 men, perhaps
even more, and It will be necessary to
spend 50,000,000 francs. I can see no
power which could obtain the consent of
Parliament to such a course. Russia, which
has a master untraiuclled by a Parliament,
will not do this, for such an act would be
folly, and Nicholas II would never pour
so many millions Into the ancient jaws of
the obstinate Minotaur.
Europe, however, I am convinced, will
finally triumph, owing to the danger it
runs, a danger the cause of which I have
explained, but Col. Vassos can prolong
the danger, and in prolonging it disturb
the rest of Europe.

Col. Mason was a native of this city, hav
ing been born here in 1841. He was the
sou of John Mason, a prominent member
or the District bar, and a grandson of
George Mason, of Guuston Hall, Va., au
thor of the "Bill of Rights." Another
grandfather was Major General Alexander
Macomb, commander-in-chief or the United
States Army at the time of his death in
1841. He was also a first cousin of Gen.
Col. Mason's first naval service was as a
private's mate on board the frigate Ni
agara, when that vessel was engaged in
lajing the first Atlantic cable. In 1868
he was appointed a midshipman, and en
tered Annapolis, from which place he re
signed in 1801, to Join the Bouthern, Con
federacy. Throughout the war he served
with conspicuous gnllantry. He partici
pated in the great naval fight in Hampton
Roads on March 8 and 9, 1S02. He was at
Drury's Bluff when that fortification re
pulsed the attack of the Galena, Monitor
and Stevens' batteries; and was in the
Clilcora at Charleston, on the occasioh
of Admiral Ingraham's repulse of the
squadron blockading that port.
In 1803 Col. Mason ran through the
blockade at Charleston, and went to Eu
rope on business connected with the Con
federacy. While in England he acted as
private secretary to his uncle, then ex
United States Senator, and the Confederate
commissioner, who, with Mr. Slidell, was
taken out of the Trent by Admiral Wilkes.

St. Louis, Mo., March 18. The perilous
condition of the lowlands touth of the
Junction of the Mississippi and the Ohio
Rivers is strongly emphasized by the
hourly receipt of messages here telling
of the encroachments of the flood. All
that bection of Missouri, Arkansas, and
Louisiana drained by the St. Francis, the
White, Arkansas, and Red Rivers is either
under water or soon vill be. The Ohio

Seven people were drowned jesterday
in Arkansas, across-.frjpm Memphis; all
negroes. One of theiupjarles Barnes, was.
simply reported aH being washed away
by the rushing floods. The remaining six
known to have perished were In a small
boat, making for the railroad track leading
to Marlon. The frail craft was upset by
conflicting currents, and the party went
down. Another rejtort has five additional
drowning by the collapse of a bridge on
which they were crossing a torrent, pnd
jet another whole family, number unknown;
but the twolatter reports lack confirmation.
A report from Helena, Ark., atates that
there Is great fear over the levee at Modoc,
which threatens to break at any moment,
and the fullest possible force is at work
to avert the disaster.
From Osceola, Ark , to a iwlnt opposite
Memphis, the entire basin Is overflowed
and 10,000 refugees have been compelled
to seek high land. Three thousand refugees

Under the carpet in the room where
Isaac n. Lewis, the Nephonset hermit,
who died a month ago in Boston, lived,
there were found a few days ago bonds,
deeds of property, cash, and various kinds
of securities, the total value of which is
said to be over $50,000.,
The life 'of Lewis was that of a recluse.
No one was allowed Jo enter his home,
and it was seldom that ho bowed or
spoke to those whom he met on the street
Mr. , Lewis died during the big snow
storm about a month ago. Ho was alone
when he died. His neighbors even didn't
know that he was ill. He had been dead
several days when his body was discov
ered. The police searched the'house previous to
the burlul for money enough to pay the ex
penses. All that was found was$18, which
was sewed in the lining of the old man's
vest. The first evidence of wealth was dis
covered when, after his death, a deed for a
big tract of land at Mount Bowdoin station
was discovered In the house. The land Is
worth in the neighborhood of $30,000. It
was known also that he owned the house
In which he had lived for nearly a quarter
cf acentury. Thisis worthprobably$5,000.
W. II. H. Moore, Lewis' son-in-law,
president of a big Insurance company in
New York, with Lewis' son, who holds a
responsible position in a railroad company
at Chicago, came to Boston after the death
of the old man. Both were convinced that
the old man had property hidden some
where. They inclined to the theory that he
bad the property in a safe deposit vault.
A careful search' failed to disclose It
Every safe deposit v'Hult in the city was
applied to, but none of them had any of
Lewis' property. Trie savings banks were
also visited, but, search as they might, the
men could not get any trace of the hidden
wealth. Then they concluded that perhaps
the property was concqaled about the home
of the hermit. '
A party of men was "employed to dig up
the cellar or the house This was doue
very carefully, and every square inch of
the ground was overhauled to aconsidcrahle
depth. The search disclosed nothing.
Still the relatives of the dead miser were
notatlsfled. They continued to look over
the house, and finally tool: to looking into
the walls and then under the floors-
Then, It is stated, the box containing
the valuables was found. The wealth was
nearly all in United States bonds and in
terest-bearing documents worth at a. con
servative estimate, $50,000. The exact
amount will not be disclosed. A good deal
of secrecy is maintained by the authorities
st the request of the-Telallves-
No trace of a will has been found. A
thorough search has been made for it and
it is believed that the niun died without
making one. He was eighty-four years old,
audin his younger days he had beea a mer
chant in New York- Some financial diffi
culties overtook him, and he wasconrinedm
an asylum for a couple of years. When he
obtained his release from that institution
be turned his back on his home and family. ,

COST OF GOING TO LAW.
One Suit the Expenses Nearly
Doubled the Principal.
A suit was tried in Justice Scott's court
yesterday where the costs amounted to
almost twice as much as the principal.
John L. Saunders, a messenger In Judge
Cole's court, entered suit against J. and
M. Strasburg to recover $1.25. The mes
senger claimed that he bought a pair of
shoes at the store of the defendants and
paid them $1 .25 in advance for them.
It was agreed that unless the shoes were
delivered by 11 o'clock on the morning of
the purchase the sale should be void. They
were not delivered until 5:35 o'clock, it
was shown. When Saunders returned the
shoes the next day he claimed that the de
fendants refused to refund his money. Jus
tice Scott decided the suit in favor of
Saundera, and a judgment was given for
$1,25 and costs, amounting in all to S3.58.

MONGOLIANS WITH MONEY
Chinese Arrive From San Francisco
to See the Minister.
They Desire His Influence With the
Emperor to Have tho Sentence
of Death Removed.
The distinguished party of Chinese mer
chants from San Francisco who have been
expected here for several days are at the
Ebbitt House. They arrived last night at
8:30 o'clock on a limited train from New
York over the Pennsylvania road. The
party consists of ten merchants and im
porters from the famous Six Companies.
Every Celestial son of them is rolling in
wealth. Their individual fortunes range
from $500,000 to $3,000,000, but they are
all dressed exceedingly simple. Just as they
live. They traveled from the Pacific Coast
to New York Jn a private car, but from
there on they traveled after the fashion of
a ball team, except that they rode in the
hotel 'bus and lined up iu the offfce to
register in a more orderly manner.
Their attorneys, J. C. Campbell and
.Thomas A. Keough, who came with them,
steered them to the hotel, and up to a
late, hour they had not spoken except In
Chinese among themselves, and they had
not kicked at the office. Keough, who
is a clever young lawyer from the Golden
Gate City, made the financial arrange
ments, and Lu Fook, a joung, womanish
looking millionaire, registered for the
"push." Keough also carried a big iron
box, which he guarded closely and de
posited in the hotel safe, for its contents
mean lite or death to the Celestial mil
lionaires. It does not contain their money,
as the crowd in the hotel lobby supposed,
but it contains the papers by which they
expect to show the Chinese minister that
the See-Yupa are not guilty of "high
treason." This is what the Sain Yups
charged them with, and If the latter fac
tion could "swipe" that box they wouldn't
do a thing to its contents.
Jn the party are two Chinese giants,
standing over six feet, and weighing about
250 pounds each. They are the biggest
men in the party, physically, mentally, and
financially, but over their respective heads
hang sentences of death. They comiwre
favorably to our millionaires, showing
plainly the burden of their riches in mas
sive, careworn features. Like sober,
virtuous men of means, they got their
room keys and filed off to bed as soon
as they arrived. Mr.Keough saidthey were
well received by all their countrymen
along the route, but they arrived here un
noticed and unobserved by the residents of
our Chinatown. He said also that their
car was the rendezvous for all the tourists
on their train, who were surprised at their
education, etiquette, and refinement. All
of them speak excellent Engli&b, and one
of them was born here.
He Is only twenty-five year,old, hand
some, and as rich as a prince. The party
will be here probably ten days. They will
do the town and its environments and the
Chinese minister if they can.
Keough said the minister has heard only
the "story of the Sam Yups. Upon"that he
recommended that the emperor pass sen
tence upon the See Yups. He sentenced fif
teen to Imprisonment and two to death if
they return to China. Their relatives there
were Imprisoned, but some have been re
leased. Last night Mr. Keouglr told The Times
the true story of their difficulties and their
mission here. It Illustrates the great jeal
ousy and rivalry between the rich Chinese
of the West. "Lee Kan. Chow," said Mr.
Krough, "Is the biggest man In the party.
"He has stores all over the world. He Is
the largest Importer in the West, and Is
worth $3,000,000. He is the head of the
great Wah Lung Kee Company He is a
leader In the See Yups. Yup means dls
tiiet, and See means four. Tiie See Yups
represent four of the famous Six Com
panies. The Sam Tups, the two companies
or two districts, call the See Yups traitors.
Since the two societies split the Sam
Yups, through the Chinete consul at San
Francisco, have had the See Tups sen
tenced by the emperor, through the minister
here, upon a fatee charge of treason. They
claim the Sees arc trying to overthrow the
emperor. But that is all rot.
"Both societiesareformed for charitable
and beneficial purposes.
The Wee Hal Lung Society, a bud
society, was formed to prevent crime and
vice among the See and Sam Yups. The
Sam Yups appointed Inspectors to run
down Chinese criminals here. The See
Yups objected to the Inspectors who were
appointed because they were ex-convlcta.
Upon this point the Sams and Sees
split. Then the Sams went to the consul
and he, for some reason unknown, sided
He went to Chief of Police Crowley, and
the chief bas sworn before a court that
he was offered $10,000 to destroy the
quarters of the Sees. Crowley refused,
but the Sams hired white detectives and
laid waste to the Sees quarters. Judge
McKenna, the present Attorney General
of the United States, was then circuit
court Judge, and he presided over the
trials that followed. We have Crowley'
deposition that an attempt was made
to bribe him by the Sams, although the
consul, Fung Yung ning, denies it.
The minister has heard but one side of
the case, and now he will hear the other.
He sent the emperor word when the Sees
were sentenced that they were all "vaga
bond boys," and they have come on per
sonally to show him who they are. We
expect to win his grace and succeed in
having the sentences set abide by the
Ruling as to Policy Tlnying.
Richard Gray, colored, was charged with
vagrancy In Judge Kimball's police court
today. The testimony showed that when
captured by Policeman Lynch the prisoner
had several policy slips in his pockets.
Gray testified that he was not a policy
runner, but was going to play the "pieces"
for himself. Upon this statement the court
ruled that the charge of vagrancy had not
been made out, and the colored man was
discharged. This Is a new and rather im
portant ruling In connection with policy
