Arnold Kohn Discredits Kishineff
Arnold Kohn. vice-president of the State Bank.
No. ST6 Qraad-SL, and treasurer of (fee Kish-
Ineff Central Relief Fund, said yesterday that
the fact of Secretary Hay* having contributed
to the fund for the relief of the Jews in Kish
lneff had had more influence with the Russian
Government than even the Indignation of the
Americas press over the atrocities. "It is this
fact." said Mr. Kohn, "coupled with the storm
of outraged sentiment that has been aroused,
that makes me disbelieve the truth of rumors
of fresh MfMMi to be perpetrated in Klshlneff
or an outbreak in Odessa and other places.
Mayor Los has s^nt us a substantial con
tribution—how much I do not care to say— and
this will also have its influence.
"Our present duty Is to al'ay public apprehen
sion of further massacres and to turn the Amer
ican public's mind to the channel of measures
for the relief of destitution and distress In
Kishineff. I expect that within seven days the
excitement will have ceased."
Concerning the project of organizing the
central committee Into a relief association for
the immigrants who will probably come from
Kishineff and other parts of Russia because
of the outrages. Mr. Kohn said that the majori
ty of these Immigrants would have little diffi
culty in finding work as tailor's operatives, the
kind of labor which, having no aversion to
sedentary occupations, they are inclined to seek.
Their rrim-Jpal trouble, he said, would come
from the opposition of the various labor unions,
many of the immigrants being unskilled.
Mr. Kohn said that over $2,500 was received
for the fund at the State Bank yesterday, rais
ing the total sc far received to approximately
$7.s,<kV>. The amount sent by cable to KiFhi
neff on Friday was 25,000 rubles. There
would, he Bald, probably be some delay in the
money reaching its destination, as. after being
received at Odessa, it would have to be sent
by drosky to Kishineff. which lies some two
hundred mile* Inland. He will, for this reason,
write to the various branch relief committees
In this country, asking them not to hold over,
but to forward the funds collected to Kishineff
Several further benefit performances on the
East Side have been arranged on behalf of the
fund. In addition to the performance to be
given to-night, the East Side merchants' com
mittee for the relief of the sufferers announces
a benefit to be given by the committee at the

BAPTISTS CONDOLE WITH JEWS.

Buffalo, May 23.— At the session of tlie American
Baptist Miwionary Union to-day tlie special com
mittee appointed to consider tne massacre of Jews
at Kislilneff eubmitted the following memorandum,
which was unanimously adopted:
The recent massacre of Jewn In Russia calls for
our sympathy, our prayers and our protests. As
far as the American public knows, these terriblo
atrocities w«*re committed with the knowledge, if
not the guilty connivance, of the Russian author
ities, both in the church and in the state. Speak
ing for more than four and one-half millions of
American Baptists, whose spiritual ancestors suf

ren are enduring persecution and social ostracism
in many countries to-day, we lift up our voice

advocates of complete religious liberty, we plead
for li now. at least to the extent of insisting that
innocent men, women and children shall not be
butchered for their religious beliefs. We ask for
the prayers of all our people to this end, and ask
that our government let it be known that the con
vlctionc and mi<at hies of the citizens of the
United Stat« condemn the Kishineff outrages.

OPPOSED TO EDUCATION BILL.
Great Demonstration of Labor and Noncon
formist Partisans at Hyde Park.
London, May 23.— Labor and nonconformity
demonstrated together here this afternoon
against the government's London Education bill.
From every district of the metropolis proces
sions, headed by brass bands and carrying baa-
Ben, inarched to Hyde Park, where a general
protest was voiced in a rwottttton condemning
the Education bill because it "destroys the
School Board, excludes women from control,
and Imposes religious tests upon teachers."
Great enthusiasm marked the march of the
thousands to the Park. The columns, which were
made up of a strange medley of clergymen,
members of Parliament, clerks, teachers, labor
ers and tradesmen, traversed many of the prin
cipal thoroughfares. The music of the bands
was occasionally varied by the singing of such
airs as "Onward Christian Soldiers." Starting
at the Thames Embankment at 4p. m., the pro
cession reached Hyde Park about an hour later.
The ranks of the demonstrators were continually
swelled until on reading the park the assem
bled multitude recalled the musters of May
Day labor demonstrations. The windows of the
clubs and houses along the route were fully oc
cupied, and the sidewalks were thronged with
spectators. Hundreds of police assisted in mak
ing easy the advance of the men in line, who.
on their arrival fit the park, surrounded a dozen
platforms and cheered their leaders as they con
demned the government and the Education bill.
Among the speakers were the Rev. Dr. John
Clifford, W. C. Steadmm. secretary of the Barge
Builders* Trades Unto i: William R. Cremer.
M. P., secretary of the International Arbitration
League: David Lloyd-G«»orge. M. P.: Thomas J.
Mficnamara. ML P.. and other well known men.
The speeches were nearly over before the end
of the enormous procession entered the park.
The crowd was then variously estimated at from
three hundred thousand to five hundred thou
sand persons. The gathering was remarkable
on account of Its orderliness.
Tremendous cheering greeted one of the speak
ers who said: "If they destroy the London
School Board we will destroy the government."
Another speaker declared. "We shall oppose the
Mil even to imprisonment." Bands played
•Men of England. Rally," the immense throng
taking up the refrain.
A 'bugle call was the signal for putting the
resolution, which wes carried amid prolonged
cheering, and the gathering then dispersed.

Henry Campbell-Bannerman. the Liberal lead

! Sir: Wt have been greatly grieved at the ac
i counts of the recent Kishlneff horrors, and the
i prospects of further outbreaks of violence in
j Europe. Now, I have been wondering whether
1 some practical remedy couid not be established on
a large scale, which would deal effectually with the
present grave situation.
It has occurred to me that something of the fol

Charter some vessels to bring over to the United

1 settle thtm in the South on some of the cheap yet
', fertile lands which are there available, combining
I various industries with a modified and simple form
1 of agriculture, making the allotments quite small.
' and enabling therm quickly to become home owners.
JL*t the families who were selected sign a contract
to the effect that they would not drift off to the
congested slums of our great cities, but wouid
settle on their allotments till these had been duly
paid for. The monty thus advanced to them would
probably be repaid inside ttn years, when it would
be available for a further party. If the first settle
ment proved successful, it would probably be easy
to raise sufficient funds for further settlements. I
should estimate that each family would cost about
SSOO, or say £*X>.ouu for a settlement of 1,000 families.
They would, of course, have their own rabbis,
synagogues and other national arrangements.
The Salvation Army would be pleased to under
take the handling of 1.000 fnmlliea. if tho necessary
funds were raised either as a donation or aa a

| THE KISHINEFF MASSACRE.
■ To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: The hysterical stories printed In some Jour
nals, appealing to passion and prejudice against
the Russian Government apropos of the massacre
of Jews at Kishineff. should have little weight with
the sober American thought. The civilized world,
irrespective of creed or nationality, is shocked at
the murderous brutality of a frenzied mob, and
calls lor relentless punishment of its perpetrators
1 an'! those oilicals responsibie for maintaining pt-aci
i and order. It is Kiaufjlng to know that Czar
i Nicholas immediately on being made acquainted
I with the facts dismissed the c-hie. of police and
■ also deposed the Governor of Bessarabia, at the
• same time summoning him to St. Petersburg, where
an investigation has already Legun. All this lndi
. catta the Czar's ciesire to brim; the criminals to
Americans who have had some experience with
mobs will be slow to engage in a campaign of
calumny and offensive Culmination against the
Russian Government, for we remember in our West
the Chimse outrapts. wnere many Mongolians lost
their lives, and not loni< ago the lynching of Ital
ians in New-Ot leans, all of which was the diaboli
cal work of frenzied mobs, deplored by all our
citizens, apologised for a:.<i indemnified by our gov
• ernment. Let t:& keep cool!

TROUBLE OVER FRIARS' LANDS.
Provincial Orders Said To P»e Disobeying the
Home, May !£*.— Reports received from the
Philippines say that, in spite oi the good inten
tions of both Archbishop Cuili. t.ie Apostolic
Delegate, and Governor Taft, the question of the
purchase of the friars' lands is growing more
complicated because of the efforts of the friars,
espei tally the Dominica nit, to conceal their pos
session of a large part of the shares In com
panies purposely formed to appear as the
owners of the land. The Provincial Orders are
helping the friars In this, thus disobeying the
instructions which the Pope sent to Archbishop
Guidi through Cardinal Hampolla, and putting
Archbishop Guidi in an embarrassing position.
The reports state that if the situation remains
unchanged It is probable that Governor Taft
will abandon the Idea of purchasing the land,
which will entail a great loss on the friars and
the promoters of the companies, as they will

NO AUDIENCE FOR DEPUTIES.
Croatian Question Unsettled — Prisons at
Vienna, May 23— The Dalmatian Deputies, whose
object Is to Induce Emperor Francis Joseph to In
tervene and prevent further bloodshed in Croatia
arrived here to-day and found their mission hope
less. Dr. E. yon Korber, the Austrian Premier,
informed them that he regretted that he was un
able for constitutional reasons to ask the Em
peror to receive them. T^.e "Pester Lloyd* states
that an audience with the Emperor was impossible
as Croatia belongs to Hungary, and the Emperor
of Austria could not receive a deputation of Aus
trian citlzins upon the Croatian question, not
withstanding the fact that the members of the
deputation are of Croatian nationality.
The Emperor's refusal is likely to cause a heated
discussion at Tuesday's sitting of tlie Relchsrath.
The Premier Invited the delegates to discuss the
matter with him to-morrow, but they refused.
To-days reports from Agram Indicate that the
situation there is quieter. The prisons cannot
accommodate the number of arrested persons, and
the military buildings have been converted into
temporary jails. The city presents a gloomy
aspect, the inhabitants wearing mourning. Mean
while the centre of disturbance seems to have
shifted to the Adriatic coast, where three districts
— Buccari, Snsak and Delgil— were placed under
martial law to-daj.
The Trieste papers report that seven persons
were shot in the riots at Fuzin yesterday. Con

Rumor of Consolidation wtik the
Postal U( rived.
President Clowry of the Western ITnlon Tele
graph Company yesterday authorized the state
ment that the cutting of Western Union poles
and wires by the Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany has not interfered lr. any way with the
service of the telegraph company.
"I don't know what effect that statement will
have on subsequent actions In court." h* said,
•'but it is true that not a minute's delny was
caused, and we are not refusing messages to a::y
point. We will tfk- messages and «uarantpe
"The \\>Btern Tnion Telegraph Company has
contracts with every railway of any importano
in this country excepting the Pennsylvania.
There are over three thousand contracts with
main companies and neariy seven thousand with
branches. In addition to this we have important
highways ail covered There Is not a town of
any Importance along the iir.es where the cut
ting was done that has not our wirea leading in
from highway trunk lines. We can reach any
town we have been reaching, and we won't re

from the Pennsylvania of the expiration of this
contract and its refusal to renew It. we remove.!
at once our telegraph offices from the Penn
sylvania's stations, that is, from their buildings.
Where the business warranted It. we established
a station of our own up in the towns, with regu
lar staffs. Where there was a very small
amount of business we put a wire into sonic
hotel or office of some kind, and arranged for
messages on a commission basis. Where the
towns were so small that there had been prac
tically no business done, we simply stopped
"Any report that we have refused to take
messages to any of our offices in Pennsylvania
or anywhere else Is not true. It is not true
that delays were caused by the transmission of
messages by roundabout routes. We have been
prepared for this kind of thing, and whrre a
roundabout message has to be sent, !t la put
through without delay, the whole thing having
been figured out beforehand. Every one of %he
lines cut down by the Pennsylvania Railroad
people is paralleled by a highway line. You
should see our highway line map. As a matter
of fact, the destroyed lines were already prac
tically dead wires. "
"When the American Telephone and Telegraph
Company Increased Us stock recently it was
said that it was going to take in this telegraph
company. Have any arrangements been made
with that company so far which help you out In
this emergency?" President dowry was asked.
"The telephone company is not mixed up in
this fight at all." he replied. "We have some
very advantageous arrangements with the tele
phone company— that is, vre have mutual ar
rangements by which we have wires on their
poles and they on our poles in some places. We
rent out privileges of that kind to electric com
panies, too. We find those arrangements con
venient now. I have no doubt, but we can han

"You are going to carry your appeal up to the
United States Supreme Court?"
"Yea, we are going to appeal, and we think we
will win. There have been two decisions of the
very same case, one for us and one against us.
In New-Jersey the United States judge who had
the case gave us the decision. Over in Penn
sylvania the Pittsburg judge decided for the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company. It was car
ried to the Philadelphia, court, and the Penn
sylvania won there, too. We expect to win when
we get up to the higher court."
The apparent unconcern with which the West
ern Union is taking the warlike onslaught of the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company has caused a
revival in Wall Street of the report that the
Western Union may some day take over the
Postal Telegraph Company, which has suc
ceeded to the Western Union's contract with thf*
Pennsylvania Railroad. With the Western
Union and the Postal Telegraph united, it is
pointed out. the telegraph service available for
the Pennsylvania would be limited to the mile
age covered by its fifteen year contract with the
Postal; for additional service it would be obliged
to construct lines of its own.
EXPLAINS ?. R. R'S ACTION.
Necessary to Make Room for the Postal.
Philadelphia. May 23.— Charles M. Schaffer. super
intendent of telegraph of the Pennsylvania Rail
road Company, In speaking of the removal of the
Western Union wires and poles from the Pennsyl
vanlan lines, said:
The Western Union Telegraph Company under Its
contract with the Pennsylvania Railroad Company
bound itself, on six months' notice after the termi
nation of the contract, to remove its poles and
wires from the property of the railroad company.
and on failure to do co the contract provided that
the Pennsylvania company had the right to re
move the poles and wires at the expense of the
telegraph company. T^e Pennsylvania company.
in order to save the telegraph company the ex
pense ard loss Incident to the removal of the poles
and wires, offered to purchase the lines at a fair
valuation, Western Union evidently preferred to
allow the Pannsylvarla to tear them down and re
move thfltn at its expense.
The Pennsylvania company, having entered Into a
contract with the Postal Telegraph Company to
provide it with facilities on its lines, was com
pelled to remove the poles and wires of the Western
Union Telegraph Company. tn order to put them
selves In *» no«ltlon to carry out their agreement
with the Postal company, as the right of way oc
cupied by the Western Union was necessary for
POOLROOMS NOT HURT.
The report printed yesterday that many pool
rooms were unable tq do business owing to the
damage done to the Western Union lines along the
Pennsylvania Railroad In Pennsylvania was found
to be untrue. No running races are being held at
any point where the lines were destroyed, and there
are many ways in which the Weeterr. Union could
send if necessary the results of the Western races
to this city without sending the messages from
Chicago to Pittsburg and then from Pittsburg: to
OPERATOR OF CAR ARRESTED.
Charged with the Murder of Four Persons
Killed in Pittsburg Elevator Accident.
Plttsburg, May 23.— 1t was almost noon to
day before all the victims of last night's ele

awaiting the identification of the dead. The
bodies were ao mangled Identification was only

women and cne man were kilied, and thirteen
persons were injured. The injured are all suf

Coroner McGeary summoned a Jury this morn
ing: anJ a rigid Investigation was at once started.
How the accident happened or how many peo
ple were In the cage when It dropped, has not
been determined. John Morrison, one of the
survivors, says that the car was packed so
that he was unable to move. It was the weights,
he says, and not the drop of flve stories, that
killed and maimed the most of the people in the
car. He said: "They seemed to strike us a lit
tle before we hit the floor, as if they had been
cut loose an instant after we started down."
Professor Glllis, a mechanical engineer, and an
instructor at the Electro-Mechanical Institute,
who was operatlng-the elevator when the nccl
dent occurred, was arrested to-day end charged
by Coroner McGear7 with murder.

of Public Safety, and Building Inspector Dies

down on the car weighed one hundred pounds
