Fans, Aug. 21.— Official advices say the Rus sian squadron off Inlada is likely to leave Turk ish waters within the next few days, as the Turkish Government has given adequate assur ances that It will meet all the Russian demands. The withdrawal of the warships will be due chiefly to Turkey's assurances, but also to Rus sia's desire to avoid a step which might appear to be antagonistic to Bulgaria. APPEAL TO ALL MACEDONIANS.

Powers May Not Send Warships— Turkey / Would Protest. London. Aug. 21.— The Turkish Ambassador called at the Foreign Office this afternoon to make Inquiries regarding the report that it was the intention of the powers to make a Joint naval demonstration in Turkish waters and to enter a protest if anything of the kind was contemplated. The Foreign Office officials made it clear to him that Great Britain has taken no action of this character, and It appears as If Italy will also refrain from carrying out her decision to dispatch warships to Turkey, as the Italian Embassy pays no report of their de parture has yet been received. This is taken by the embassy to indicate that tticre have been developments making the step inadvisable or unnecessary at the present moment, due- possibly to the Turkish acceptance of the Russian de mands, which was confirmed at th* Turkish Embassy. • The negotiations respecting Macedonia are conducted on the Continent, the Foreign Secre tary, Lord Lansdowne, and most of the am bassadors being away from London. The Turkish Ambassador will leave London to-morrow for the country, where he will re main for some days. The diplomats point out that the scheme for a Fettlement of the Macedonian question outlined by the "Independence Beige" yesterday could not be approved by the powers, as it is evident Turkey would never submit to a peaceful oc cupation of the Bosporus and the Dardanelles.

Maitre Labori Closes His Defence Gover nment Officials Attacked. Paris, Aug. 21.— Public interest in the Hum bert trial is growing greater as it nears its close, and the crowd at the Palace of Justice was much larger to-day. Among those who had re served places near th«» judges was Senora Cas tro, wife of the President of Venezuela, who was accompanied by the Venezuelan Minister. Maitre Labor! continued his address for th» de fence, urging that the larger creditors had acted through attorneys, who should be held responsi ble, while the small creditors would have been paid if the Rente Viagere had not been wrecked through the premature prosecution of th* Hum berts. Malt re Labori caused a considerable sensation by a bitter denunciation of M. Cattaui, the money lender, for prosecuting: the Humberts, and, mentioning M. Waldeck-Rousseau's and M. Tally's part in the prosecution, he declared the political parties' leaders had become degenerate. M. Valle", ho pointed out, first acted as attorney against the Humberts and afterward became Minister of Justice, supervising their prosecu tion. M. Cattaui, he asserted, belonged to that class which Is bringing dishonor on France and peeking to gain all through the use of money, thus corrupting the public administration. The charges of Matt re Labori, although avoid ing specific accusations, reflected severely on the chief persons in the system of the adminis tration of Justice. He reasserted the existence of the Crawfords, and maintained that the pros ecution had failed to establish that they and the millions did not exist. Advocate Clunet followed in defence of Emlle Daurißnac, and the trial was adjourned until to-morrow. GERMAN SOCIALISTS DIVIDED. Unable to Agree on Acceptance of a Vice- Presidency in the Reichstag.

He works in a mill?" "Ye?, sir." "Have you not asked James Taylor to come hero and swear that on December 10 you were at some place other than New-York?" "No. sir." "Have you ever been convicted of a crime?" "Yes. sir." "What -were you convicted for?" asked Mr Eustace. "Firing stones in Jersey City wh»n I was a boy." "When your men went bark to work on the Hamburg-American pier did Plenty's men con tinue to d* the work on account of which you struck?" "No, sir." PAYS DOLAN WAS IN HOBOKEN. Thomas Dodge testified that he lived at No. 132 Monroe-st., Hobcken. N. J , that on Decem ber 19, 1902, he was with Dolan during the day in Hoboken, and that they were at the Hudson County Jail during the afternoon until after 4 o'clock. He also saw Dolan in a store in Ho boken about 7 o'clock in the evening, after which they came over to New-York City. Under ques tioning by Mr. Band. Dodge said he was with Parks on Thursday in company with Parks's counsel. John Monahan, an Ironworker, said that he saw Dolan on December 19 in Jersey City. John J. Fallon, a lawyer, testified that Dolan was at his office In Hoboken at 2 p. m. on De cember 19. Joseph Tracey. a Hoboken stationer, said that Dolan was in his store at 7 p. m. on Decem ber 19. No questions were asked these latter wit nesses by the prosecution, and the defence rested. Mr. Hand moved that Parks he committed to the Tombs during the remainder of the trial, and Recorder Goff denied the motion. After recess the prosecution put George Murty on the stand, and he testified that on December IS he was employed by Josephus Plenty, and was at work on the Hamburg-American pier. He said that he was a member of the House smiths nnd Bridgemen's Union, and after the strike he and four of his fellow workmen did the same class of work that they had done be fore the strike. Jacob Gossman, another member of the union, gave substantially the same testimony. No questions were asked either witness by the defence, and this concluded the case for the prosecution. COLONEL ROBINSON SUMS UP. Colonel David C. Robinson began to sum up for the defence at 2:20 p. m. He declared that the only evidence presented against Parks was "the uncorroborated evidence of a man who had a moneyed interest in putting a crime on some one." Colonel Robinson attacked the testimony of Plenty, and declared that Plenty's object in drawing his check was to provide evidence to the Hamburg-American company that he had paid money to settle the strike, because of his agreement with the company that it would re pay him $250 if it cost him $500 to settle. Referring to Parks, Cotonel Robinson said: "He was the trusted representative of five thou sand of the most Intelligent, the most acute mechanics in the city of New-York. For many years he was under the espionage of an asso ciation of manufacturers, hyenas and wolves, bound together by the coherent attractions of plunder." THE PROSECUTION'S CASE. ■ A few minutes before 4 p. m. Mr. Rand be gan his address for the prosecution. Pointing to Park?, the Assistant District Attorney said: "Not his fellows are on trial here, but he is. Organized labor is not on trial here. There is nothing infamous In the name of walking dele gate, except such as men like 'Sam' Parks and John Dolan and Henry Farley have put upon it." In the course of his address Mr. Rand pointed out that no one had testified for the defence as to where the witness Dolan was on December 19 between 4 and t> o'clock. "And Dolan him self." he continued, "the frail reed on which their whole fabric of fraud and perjury rests, did not say where he was during those two hours." Turning to Parks, Mr. Rand continued: "And when Parks took the stand, before ho had spoken twenty words, is there any doubt that every man within the sound of his voice knew that he was not only an extortioner and a thief, but a perjurer?" Later, with impassioned utterance. Mr. Rand said: "On the sworn testimony in this case. I say that Bernard Lynch wa« the man through whose hands the dirty money passed. On this testimony I say that he keeps a resort at Fifty ninth-st. and Thlrd-ave. for extortioners and thieves. Why didn't 'Barney* Lynch come here and deny Plenty's story? They asked. Where is 'Barney' Lynch? I'll tell you where he is." Mr. Rand went over and pointed to where Lynch sat, In the first row outside of the rail. "There's 'Barney' Lynch," he said. "Come, 'Barney' Lynch, and tell to whom you gave the $200? Come, 'Barney* Lynch, and tell for whom you received that $200? Come, 'Barney* Lynch, for your friend's sake, for your name's sake, and tell us to whom you paid this money?" At each mention of Lyneh's name objection was made by counsel for Parks. Lynch sat without change of attitude, glaring at the As sistant District Attorney. Recorder Goff began his charge to the jury at 4:4." p. m. The general impression among these In the courtroom was that his charge was fa vorable to the defendant, although the counsel for Parks took many exceptions to it. The jury went out shortly before 7 p. Nx Recorder Goff. when the jury had retired, said that he would wait for their verdict until 10 o'clock. If at that hour they had not reached a decision, he would lock them up for the night. A large crowd stayed about the Criminal Courts Building, as the general impression was that a verdict might be reached quickly. Scattered through the corridors of the building was a large force of police. v PARKS S UNION'S RIVAL. Tlousesmiths Organhcd for Work — Agreement Signed. There were two important developments in the Building 1 Trades ti-vup yesterday— the- organ ization of the rival union of ffous*smtths— •which la to contest the ti^ld with ".Sam" Parks' 3 union, and the announcement that the Brother hood of Painters would sign the arbitration plan. At the meetJtng of th' 1 striking house smith! last night Park.' was again Indorsed by a rising vote. it was also announced that the strike declared by Parks on the Cooper-Wlegand Company ■ buildings In Paterson had b«en made effective, and that only union men were work in* Thr new untoa *v organis-d a* the BuiM ing Ir^dfs Employers' Club, at No, 1,123 Broad v.a;. Over one hundred and tfftv iron workers were pr?£^nt. and officers ■were elected. It was announced yesterday that the Stone Cutters' Union has for the fifth time rejected the employers' plan of arbitration. The boas stone cutters also have pronounced against the plan, declaring that the agreement which they have with their men at present is eminently satisfactory. The most ferious setback to the plans of the members of the Building Trades Employers' Association to resume work by September 1 appeared yeeterdajr, when the delegatta of the Stone Cutters' Untoa ueclared that a combina tion of the trades and employers In the stone industry will he formed some time next week. The employers are to be represented Ly the employing stone cutters and the boss stone setters, and the workmen by the Journeymen stone setters, the derrickmen and the stone cutters. The object of the proposed movement is the formation of a permanent organization against the idea of the plan of arbitration, in contradistinction to the agreement in vogue at present. . ~- - r „ . .. Charles L. Eidlitz. president of the Building Trades Employers' Association, when told of the proposed new movement, declared that some of the stonecutters had already signed the plan of arbitration, and arc working under it. The men themselves, however, say. that all the surplus members of the union who arc not employed ;n the city have been sent out of town and are working to a man. Mr. Eidlitz said. also, that the Brotherhood of Painters have signed the plan of arbitration. This union includes the decorators »nd the pa perhangers. and numbers about four thousand strong. The employers* association seemed greatly pleased over the- action of the Brother hood. Two other unions are expected to sign the plan before next Tuesday, according to Mr. Eidlitz. MANY WILL BE HAPPY. President Xeidig at Meeting Calls McCarthy Crowd Grafter*. Practically the sole topic of conversation ** the meeting of the Housesmlths and Bridge men Union In Ilannerchor Hall last night was the trial of Parks. About 10 o'clock, before the jury had reached Its verdict, the members at the meeting passed a vote of confidence in the accused walking delegate, and an assessment which had been levied for Parks's defence was paid in. It was said that th's amounted to $1,000. During the evening a report gained circulation that the jury stood eight to four in favor of Parks. The news was received joyfully, and the entertainment committee whooped things up in the bar. After the news of the verdict had been received the committee disappeared. The effect of the verdict on the friends and admirers of Parks was almost indescribable. They had had such complete confidence in him. and had been so dominated by his personality, that the possibility of a conviction had hardly been considered. So that when the single word "Guilty:" was received, it was as If some heavy blow had fallen on each and every man individ ually. There were some men. howe'. er, who looked at the conviction in a different light. One of the prominent members of the union said: "There will be many happy homes in New- York to-night. Pome of us have been out since April, and the feeling has been among many of us thai, ii Parks was out of the way work would start up at once." Some members of the Stonecutters' Union who were present declared that the contest would be continued against the employers' association on the one side, and the Houaesaaiths and Bridge men's Union and the Stonecutters' Union, on tho other. There was an exciting scene between Robert E. Neldig, the president of the union, who is not considered to be v Parks supporter, and Timothy McCarthy, a walking delegate, one of Parks's cronies, who was jointly indicted with him in the assault case on James O'Neil, a member of the union. In a fiery speech, de livered in his shirtsleeves. McCarthy denounced Neidig, particularly for taking down to the Dis trict Attorney's office the constitution and by laws of the union. Neldig had been subpoenaed by the District Attorney, and under the law was compelled to deliver up whatever papers were demanded. "It was one of the worst things that could have been done against Parks." he shouted, "and I demand that you give up the gavel and step down as chairman." McCarthy was cheered uproariously by his supporters, who appeared to be in a majority. Neidig replied: I want to tell you 'grafters,' and you par ticularly," pointing his finger at McCarthy, "that I won't be forced out of the chair. There is a proper way to depose me which is provided for in the constitution. You can't terrorize me here this evening. You have control of the ?neeting. but I dare you to try and penalize me. All you fellows haven't spunk enough. You dare not do it. If I did produce the constitution and bylaws it was the action of a good citizen, and I would do it again. Now do your b°?t or your worst You can't remove, me." Neidig still held th« gavel and McCarthy sub sided. The \ot^ which was taken declaring confidence in Parks was not quite unanimous. There was one man who voted against the resolution, and h* was nearly mobbed by the other member?. O. M. EIDLITZ HAS NO COMMENT. Otto M. Eidlitz, president of the board of governors of the Building Trades Employers' Association, when told last night of the convic tion of Parks, declined to talk on the subject. "I have not one word to say," he said. "I do not care to express any opinion on the matter just now." CONFER ON B. AND A. LABOR TROUBLE. Demands of Machinists for Nine Hour Day and Increase of Wages Considered. James o'Connell, president of the International Association of Machinists, and the international committee, ha>l a conference, yesterday with Su perintendent Van Ktten. of the New-York Central Railroad, f>nd Superintendent Deems, of the de partment of motive power. The conference, which was hold in the office of the New-York Central Railroad, was over the strike of the machinists in the repair shops of the Boston and Albany division of the road, for the nine hour workday and ll^-j per cent increase of wages. The men were work ing piecework ten hours 8 day. and the advance is to keep up th* wages to the nine hour standard. It was decided to postpone action for the pres ent and meet again on Tuesday in the office of the Boston and Albany division in Boston, where the tonferrees will be Mr. Van Etten and two members of the executive committee. President O'«'onnell left for Tovagstown, Ohio, last evening. lit* said before he went away that he believed the trouble would be amicably settled. As to the complaint., about discrimination against union men throughout the country, he said that while the employers would be warned against it. do action would be taken until the subject was brought before the convention of the American Federation of Labor, which meets In Boston in November.
