Expresses the Belief That
of Moral Obloquy
sent the best elements of New Eng
land Most of Mr. Kneeland's remarKs were
directed against the playing of ball on
Attended Bafl Game.
Point was added to the reverend
gentleman's remarks by the fact that
he had come- almost direct to the pul
pit from the baseball field. He had
been a visitor in the city all day today
and in the morning he preached in the
People's Presbyterian church. Laurel
and Park avenues, in place of the pas
tor, Rev. John McL. Richardson, who
is on vacation at present. In the af
ternoon Rev. Mr. Kneeland went to
Newfield park, where the league game
between Bridgeport and Pittsfield was
in progress, before an audience of a
thousand. He told of hie experience
at the game, from the pulpit. Being
little late in arriving and seeing no
place at which he could secure a
ticket, he had asked a policeman
where he could buy one, and the latter
said: "Oh, you can walk in at this
stage of the game."
Paid . No Admission.
"I walked In," said the preacher,
"but my belief is that they sell tickets
there every Sunday, because I asked a
few people after I had ,got in and they
told me that they had paid. I also,
saw posters announcing the game in
different parts of the city.

Plans are being made for as large a
display as possible of military strengtn

when it is proposed to hold a b.g

To march.
Th war department has been called
upon to furnish military instructors
to a doaen cities, where the fear of
being impressed for service against the
revolutionists has given away before
a later patriotic ardor. Thousands "of
all ages are asking to be drilled in
the use of arms.
Nor is the aid afforded the govern
ment confined to offers to serve in
the ranks) A delegation of planters
from the state of Morelos has wMteii

ish government was informed officiallv
yesterday that Bulgaria .was prepared
to send plenipotentiaries to the Turkish
capital to negotiate a settlement of ail
questions in dispute between the two
nations as soon as facilities were
granted for their journey over the rail
Messages Received Yesterday Related
Only to Routine Matters.
Washington, Aug. 31. Secretary of
State Bryan upon his return today
from a short lecture, trip announced
that nothing had been received at the
state department from Mexico City to
cause any alarm or to change the dip
lomatic situation . that exists ' between
this, government and the provisional
government in Mexico City.
The secretary remained at his home
all day, keeping in touch with the state
department by telephone, and was gJad
of the opportunity to get a rest. A few
messages were received fro mthe em
bassy at Mexico City relating to rou
tine developments, such as supplying
Americans with means to leave Mex
ico, and a brief message came from
the special American envoy,. John Lind,
at Vera Cruz.
Mr. Lind,. it was reasserted, would
remain in Vera Cruz tomorrow, at
least, so far as administration officials
here had any knowledge of his plans.
That the administration still Is con
tent to wait for expected hopeful de
velopments is apparent on every hand,
President Wilson planning to remain
in Concord, N. H., over Labor day,
nothing having arisen to demand his
immediate return to Washington.
Reports of new orders for mobiliza
tion of troops in Mexico by the pro
visional authorities caused no excite
ment in offlcta.1 circles here. At th
war and navy departments officers
were on duty all day, but no reports
from the Mexic-an border were receiv
ed regarding attempts to smuggle arms
into Mexico in violation of the strict
neutrality order from President Wil
son. The administration. It was reported,
was encouraged by statements ema
nating from Mexico City which give
strong indication that the provisional
authorities do not regard negotiations
with the United States at an end, and
that they are expecting to hear further
from the American confidential agent.
President's Representative to Arrive
from Mexico This Week.
Vera Cruz, Aug. 31. Dr. William
Bayard Hale, who is now on his way
to Washington, and should arrive
there on Tuesday or Wednesday, is
expected to place before President
Wilson and Secretary of State Bryan
Important facts in the Mexican situa
tion which have had a bearing on the
negotiations between the two coun
tries. The president's personal repre
sentative, John Lind, is still awaiting
instructions from Washington, but so
far he has not received any indication
fropa the Mexican government that it
would be willing to make more conces
sions to the American demands. It was
considered not improbable that For
eign Minister ' Gamboa's explanation
that General Huerta could not Become
a candidate for the presidency at the
next elections because of the constitu
tional amendment made during the
Madero administration, might be con
strued by the American representatives
as an assurance that he would with
draw definitely from the executive
power after October at the latest, but
Mr. Lind is fully cognizant that the
Mexican constitution does not prevent
General Huerta from resigning and
thus rendering himself eligible for the
presidency. Mr. Lind is also well in
formed regarding the editorials in the
Mexican newspapers, since the ex
change of notes, in which is suggested
the necessity of General Huerta ac
cepting such candidacy.
The announcement that General
Felix Diaz may return in time to make
a fight for election offers some hope
of a settlement, but it is generally re
garded as doubtful that, the election
of General Diaz or any other man in
whose choice the rebels do not join
would go far toward restoring peace
in Mexico.
A large number of Americans have
arrived from the interior with the idea
that financial aid is to be given to all
Americans for the asking, and not a
few of them were disappointed, and
some indignant, when they were forced
to answer the consul's questions as to
whether they had enough money to
pay their own expenses. The foreign
population of Vera Cruz has increased
greatly since the warning from Wash
ington, and unless some vessel takes
off 6 portion of them within a day or
two Consul Canada will have to make
special provision for their care.

Presence of 1,500 Spectators Atlan

Panama, Aug. 81. The last remain

Panama canal was blown up by dyna
mite this morning. It was an intense
ly interesting spectacle. At exactly
.ju o clock an electric switch was
turned on and a moment later the
1,500 spectators, including the Shrin-
ers visiting here from the United
States and the officers of the British
cruiser Xew Zeaand, were rewarded
by a wonderful sight. Hundreds of
tons of mud and stones were thrown
high in the air; there they""hung sus

derous roar of the explosion re-echoed
in the nearby hills.
20 Tons of Dynamite Used.
About twenty long tons, equal to
44,800 pounds of 45 per cent, dyna

one of the largest ever set off in the

feet, tore a big gap in the barrier, but

Final Breaking of Barrier.
. Kqually interesting as the explosion
was the actual breaking of the bar
rier this afternoon, the tide creeping
steadily up until at 1.35 o'clock it
was level with the top of the gap. A
workman seized a ahovel and made
a small trench through which a rill
of water trickled. Gradually it wid

This Pointed Out by the New York
Medical Journal.
New York, Aug. 31. Serious differ
ences have arisen between the medical
profession and the legislators of va
rious states a sto the interpretation of
practical" eugenics, in fact, public ex
pression of medical opinion has reach
ed a point where it is charged that leg
islators wtio seek to put society on a
eugenic basis do not know what they
are doing. This opinion is based on an
examination of recently enacted stat
utes governing the question. The New
York Medical Journal "tays editorially
In its current issue, under the heading
"Misdirtcted Eugenics," after referring
briefly to an editorial article on the
same subject printed on August 2:

Latest Move of Former .District "Attorney Sweeps Them Off
Their Feet In the Event of Writ of Habeas Corpus
Being Sustained, They Hope to Accomplish Delay hy
Appeal Legal Battle Will be Renewed Tomorrow
Sherbrooke, Que., Aug. SI.- Harry K.
Thaw's lawyers, swept off their feet
yesterday by the sudden move of Wil
liam Travers Jerome in obtaining
through John Boudreu, the Coaticook
ohief of police, a writ of habeas corpus
requesting Thaw's production in the
superior court here on Tuesday, spent
the ' day in conferences, and tonight
gave renewed expression of their belief
that the writ would not be sustained.
Appeal Might Cause Delay.
"If it is sustained," aid W. K. Mc
Keown of the Thaw forces, "there is
always recourse to appeal, and I am in
clined to think that appeal to the court
of reviews or to the court of appeals
would act as a stay and would hold our
Client in Jail, safe from deportation.-In
the face of such circumstances I do not
see how New York state can make
any move until the king's bench con
venes in October."
Women Call and Bring Flowers.
Thaw spent the day in his cell writ
ing letters and dictating to his sten
ographer. As was the case last Sun
day, there was no religious service in
the prison. Several women called and
gave the fugitive flowers. In fact, his
cell has been banked with them ever
since his confinement'.
Boudreau Acted With Eyes Open.
W. . L. Shurtleff of Coaticook, the
first attorney who was retained for
Thaw after his arrest nearly two weeks
ago, said today he had ".card that Bou
dreau told a number o friends that he
had signed the petition for the writ of
habeas corpus in the Thaw case
through a mistake. Some one had told
him, so the story goes, that he was
affixing his signature to a document
which would indemnify him should
Thaw decide to sue for false arrest.
He was Thaw's captor at Coaticook,
and in his petition for the writ he set
forth that he feared he might be liable
for damage. Boudreau denied, how
ever, that he had signed the applica
tion for the writ without knowing what
he was doing. Friends might criticise
his act he added, but he had acted
with his eyes open. v
Thavs Lawyers Deny Coercion.
Thaw's lawyers denied that they were
trying to coerce Boudc au into asking
for discontinuance of the writ. "We
presume that he knew what he was
doing," said McKeown, "though we
have no doubt that he was frightened
to some extent by repeated suggestions
that he might have a big damage suit
on his hands unless he tried to set
Thaw out of Jail."

Many Broken Heads Result from the
Tramway Strike Riots.
Dublin, Aug. 31. The fierce rioting
in connection with the tramway strike
was renewed today. Hundreds of per
sons, including the city constables were
inlured. On Saturday sixty or more
persons were injured. All the hospi
tals are so crowded that many serious
cases had a be sent to their homes for
The strike committee, in the inter
est of peace, had rescinded early in
the morning the proposed mass meet
ing in O'Connell street, and had sub
stituted a parade from Beresford Place
to Croydon park, at Kairview, a sub
urb on the north side of the city. The
authorities meanwhile had prohibited
the mass meeting.
Croydon park belongs to the trans
port workers' union and a meeting was
held there without disorder. But on
the return march the attempts of the
police by baton charges to disperse
the constantly growing crowds led at
once to rioting. The mob was further
incensed by the arrest of one of the
strike leaders, James Larkin, against
whom a warrant had been out for 24
hours. Larkin was on the balcony of
a hotel in Sackvllle street. He was
wearing a disguise for the purpose of
eluding arrest, but an enthusiastic ad
mirer raised the cry "Three cheers for
The police immediately pounced
upon him and violent scenes ensued.
The rioting became general in var
ious parts of the city. The police
charged repeatedly with their sticks
and this led to pitched battles. Stones,
brickbats and bottles were hurled by
the infuriated rioters, and the streets
were soon covered with prostrate
forms. More than fifty arrests were
