B r.d skilful defence that tbe sailors put up-a
p. gefenos which eurprlßed the many who had
rxpected a rather easy victory for the BOldiers
and which reflected great credit on the work of
Paul Dashfeu. the Annapolis coach. It is more
than likely that, had not an Annapolis back

The annual Army-Navy game can always be

match fully lived up to the reputation estab-
Bsbed by Its predecessors. The football crowds
began to arrive last night, and it it, doubtful If

Woman in Harlem Opera House
Heard Engine in Street.
Coolness on the part of the theatre oflici.Tls.
actors and others in the Harlem Opera House,
in the midst of the performance of "Letty," in
which William Faveisham Is the star, yester
day afternoon checked In Its early stages ;t
threatened panic in which practically everybody
in the audience left their seat*. Maio could not
be restrained from leaving the theatre. The
trouble w;is caused by a woman' in th-> balcony
who hysterically cried "Fire!" when she heard,
as did others, th* clang: and rumble of a fire
engine on Its way to << fir' v remote from the
Engin« Company N<->. 58, with quarters in
West One-hunrtred-aiid-eifrhteenth-st., was
makinjr fast time xip Seventh-aye. to a fire in
One-hundred-and-forty-ninth-st. Th>» Harlem
Opera House is on the north side of One-hun
dred-and-twenty-fifth-st. just w< Bi of Seventh
ave., and has an entrance in One-hundred-and
twenty-slxth-st. Traffic in Seventh-aye. is
plainly heard in the theatre, especially in the
rialcwiy and gallery, the sounds coming through
the One-hundred-and-twenty-sixth-st. entrance.
When the woman who cried "Fire!" and whose
name could not he ascertained, shouted, the
cry was bo distinct that it was he*rd in nearly
all parts o ( the house. Interest In the fourth
act of "L,*»tty" was forgotten, and the audi
ence hurrh-d out Into the aisles nnd from the
upper floors to the stairways.
Th»»n the precautions taken by theatre man
agers recently for just su<-h emergencies were
put to good use. Alexander Lichtensteln, man
ager and owner of the theatre, grave the electric
fire emergency signal, which Bent every em
ploye of the liouao on a specific duty and to a
specific station.
Mr. Lichtenstein called out loudly that there
was no danger. He told the audience the fire
exits were open and that everybody who wished
to do so could leave the theatre, but he advised
all present to remain in their seats. His coun
sel was repeated in a loud voice by Harry Meeks,
the superintendent of ih^ theatre, from th
easterly aisle. The fire exit doors meanwhile
had been opened by the ushers, who stood at
th>- exits advising a return of the audience to
their seats, but explaining that those who
wished to do bo could take their time in leaving.
Following the emergency signal, the asbestos
curtain was lowered and Mr. Faversham and
John Regal, the fireman regularly stationed at
the theatre, went before the footlights and said
there was no fire In the theatre, and no danger
from flre outside; that no fire was in progress
anywhere near the building. With all these ef
forts and those of Henry Toung, the treasurer
of the theatre, and of his assistant. Charles
L»aughlln. both of whom were counselling order
on fhe stairways and in the lobby exit, there
were pcores of persons who did not remain. They
left the theatre by the fire and other exits.
however, in good order, thanks to the direction
of the theatre attaches.
The hats and gloves of many women were
crushed or lost, hut so far as known no person
fainted. Among fhose who complimented Mr.
IJrhtenstein, th«» manager, and attaches of the
theatre was J. I_. Mott. of No. HO Fifth-aye.,
the Iron merchant. It was the opinion of Mr!
Mott and others that even If there had been a
flre in the building everybody inside would have
been able to reach the street in safety, thanks
to the ooolnens and evidence of training on the
part of the theatre employes for Just such an

Thrilling Escapes from Roof — Re
building Mai/ Be Necessary.
The Queens County Court House was partly
■wrecked by flr»» yesterday afternoon. Chief
Croker. who went from Manhattan to fight
the flames, said the building would have to be
rebuilt. In that case the loss would be $300,
For several weeks roofers had beon hi work
on the courthouse. Just before noon yesterday
one of the tinsmiths must have sel fire to the
roof inadvertently with his hand furnace, for
soon after thai time Deputy Sheriff Semler dis
covered smoke and flames issuing from the
Semler gave the alarm, and there was a small
army of volunteer fire fighter? on hand in a
moment Four alarms were sounded, and en
gines responded from Brooklyn and Manhat
tan. The heavy dome of the building fell and
several personi barely escaped being hit by fall
ing debrifl which was afire. The roof fell in,
crashing through tbe dining halls and kitchens
on the tap Boor and finding its way through to
the Becond floor, where huge sections of it
smashed the rich furnishings of the Buprema
Court room and the District Attorney's offices.
Sufficient time wac given for the removal of
most of the records of the District Attorney's
office on the second floor and from the Sheriff's
office on the nrst floor.
The nineteen workmen on th«» roof wero
trapped. The foreman. Emil Sterna, of Man
hattan, guided the others to the dome before it
fell, and. unfastening one of the halyards, made
11 fast to the base of the flagstaff, allowing the
loose end to swing downward. It was caught
by some one in the second story and held while
one by one the roofers passed down hand over
hand to safety.
Assistant DistrW Attorney James A. Gray
recollected that a certain record had been
locked in a .safe, and mounted a ladder placed
against the side of the courthouse to gain ac
cess to the District Attorney's office through a
window. He got the record, and was descending
the ladder when a large piece of the roof fell
within a couple of inches of his head.
Fireman Patrick Lennon and other members
of Engine Company No. 158 ran to the top
floor and into the dining room, where they wera
met by a back draught. It was thought at
first that all escaped, but it was discovered that
Lennon was missing. A truck company arrived
just then, and an extension ladder was hoisted
to the Pill of a window of the dining room.
Firemen ran up, entered through the window,
and found Lennon sitting in a chair in front of
a table. His head lay on the table, and he
was unconscious. They picked him up. carried
him to the window, called for a lifeline* and
lowered him to the ground. Dr. Kennedy was
waiting at the bottom of the ladder, and after a
hurried examination had the injured man placed
In an ambulance and taken to St. John's Hos
pital, across the ntreet from the courthouse,
where he was revived.
Matron Wells of the jail had all her charges
bundle up their belongings and stand in the
corridors, ready for departure should the fire
extend to the jai'.. Chief Croker directed the
fighting to such purpose that the flames were
confined within fifteen minutes after his ar
rival to the part of the building furthest from
the jail. The fire was under control at 2 o'clock
and extinguished an hour later.
Sin riff Meyerrose after the fire. Inasmuch as
his dining rooms and kitchens had been de
stroyed, wanted to know how he could feed
the prisoners.
The Queens County Courthouse cost $276.
000. Th^re have been frequent and costly re
pairs. Before the site of the courthouse was
selected there was a long, bitter wrangle be
tween various sections of Queens County.
It has not been Bettled where court will be
h«»ld but it is believed that St. Mary's Lyceum.
which has been used when the courthouse was
being repaired, will be used for the December

United States Will Not Enforce
Pat/went of Proposed Loans.
Washington, Nov. Some official concern is
manifested in Washington over the apparent
disposition at Havana to increase the bonded
Indebtedness of Cuba beyond the point indi
cated by conservative business principles, and
it is wondered whether those American finan
ciers who are reported t<> be facilitating the
increase of the Cuban debt understand that if
this policy is carried to a poini where the island
finds itself unable to meet its obligations the
I'nited States cannot be relied on to compel
liquidation by means of the authority vested in
this country by the Platt amendment.
That President Palma is alive to the danger
of increasing the Cuban debt is shown by his
message to the Congress which met on Novem
ber 7. In which he said that to settle the army
claims In tull at once would require |28,000.
000, in addition to the $35,000,000 already bor
rowed, but declared that Cuba is in no way pre
pared t<> carry such a loan In view of its obli
gation to the United States not t.> contract a
debt in excess of its ability to pay the interest
from the regular revenues of the country. Pres
ident Palma shows, moreover, that of the total
funds in the national treasury sine* April
last one-third whs required to defray the In
terest on the present f35.000.000 loan. Th«
President suggested, however, that the diffi
culty might be overcome by effecting a loan
for s long term of years at a l<-w rate of in
terest—3 per cent— the government could
be authorised to sink after twenty-five years
or to liquidate sooner It the means became
available. As the interest charges and the sink-
Ing fund of the present loan al^sorh all the ex
isting revenues above the regular charge* of
administration. President Palma points out that
any loan would compel an Increase of taxation.
It is Interesting to note that while the budget
for the coming year will amount to $16,000,000,
the policies outlined by President Palnia will
make necessary an increase of '_'."> per cent, thus
bringing the prospective total disbursements
for the following rear up to 920.000,000.
Under these circumstances, the Introduction in
the Cuban House of Representatives yesterday
of a bill authorising a new loan of $28.500;000 at
4 per cent, to pay the remainder of the army
claims, cannot but be regarded by those who
have the best Interests of the new republic at
heart us ill advised. They regard it as a menace
to Cuba's financial integrity and as perhaps
jeopardizing the interests of those who advanced
the original loan of |33.000,<>0t>. It is appreci
ated that the suggested loan has no evidence of
receiving the formal sanction of the government,
especially as the bill provides for interest at the
rate of I per cent, but it is further noted thai
Havana dispatches say the proposition seems t.>
be prompted by speculators who have bought up
the soldiers' claims, and it is feared that the In
fluences v. Inch prompted the introduction of the
bill may prove sufficiently strong to procure its
enactment if attention Is not called to the fact
that the United States cannot be counted on t<>
enforce these clnlnis if the Cubans are beguiled
into an extravagance they can ill afford.
Moreover if the report that New- York specu
lators have acquired a large number of soldiers'
claims proves true, such increase of prosperity
as ndght come from the distribution in Cuba of
the proceeds of the new loan would not result,
as the money would never reach Cuba

Sixteen Treaties Already Signed and
More Expected.
Paris, Nov. 26.— Reports received at the Foi
eign Office here show that sixteen treaties of
arbitration have thus far been signed between
the various powers of Europe r»nd hy America.
The texts of all the treaties -ue practically
identical with that of tho Frnu treaty with
Great Britain. This ramification of similar
treaties is considered as having m idespread in
ternational significance, as it h«"» the • ffect of
a joint pact to which most of the leading na
tions adhere.
France has maj*» six treaties— namely, with
Great Britain, Italy, Spain, Th. motherlands.
Sweden and Norway and the fluted States.
The oth«r treaties are those of Italy and Great
Britain, Denmark with The Nethi rhuids, Portu
gal with Spain. (lermany with England, I'nrtti
gal with The Netherlands. Russia with DslgiOT,
Great Britain with Swltzerlan<l and the United
States with Germany, Switzerland and Portu
gal. It Is expected that an arbitration treaty
between the United States and Great Hrltain
will be signed in a few days.
France. Austria and other countries are now
negotiating a number of treaties. Those sifcnM
or pending represent all the leading pttwets
and practically all the smaller powers r»f
Kurope, thus showing the universal acceptance
of the same principle. It is expe.-ted that the
movement will extend to South and Central
America and the countries of Asia and Africa
which exert International InftllSlli ti. thin giv
ing the chain of treaties world-wid* effect.
Acceptances Received from Spain,
France and Denmark.
Washington, Nov. lit;.— lt was announced at
the State Department to-day that Spain has
accepted in principle the President's invitation
for another peace conference at The Hague,
reserving for further discussion th« fixing of
the date for the meeting.
Ambassador Jusserand called >>n Secretary
Hay and repeated what M DeJcass§, the French
Foreign Minister, had said, to the effect that the
American initiative for the reassemhling of
the Hague Peace Conference had received a.
most sympathetic sskesw. U was said that
Franco h.id accepted the invitation in principle,
with a reservation »* to th* dat- 1 for hoMtng the.
Denmark ;ilso has accepted th*> President's

Felton Shows No Emotion on Hear
ing Roche Is Dying.
(Juy Roche, the gambler who was «h~>t twice
by "Big Frank" Felton after a quarrel at Broad
way and Thirty-sixth-s on Thursday evening.
died just before {>'■'" o'clock last night at the
New-Tork Hospital. Ho sank fasr throughout
the day. Th^- sargeons were unab!e to Bnd the
two bullets which had lodged hack of his I'.ver.
Th?y were surprised that Koche lived so long.
H« was alone when he died. He made ■• state
men I In his last breaths.
Several visitors called at thf> hospital yester
day to inquire about Roche's condition They
were til men. None were allowed to set him.
Felton has maintained absolute silence store
going to Jefferson Market prison. From the
time fif his i-ornmltment nobori^- baa called on
him. net even his wife. He has refused to see
his mi st intimate friends on th» i advice of
counsel, and has said nothing to the keepers,
although they have tried t<> draw him Into con

was after his arrest. Word was taken to him
that Roche would net survive the day, but it
had no visible effect op him.
Assistant District Attorney X rot el said last
night that he had not tb< douht that
it would he possible to gel a verdict of mordei
in the first degree agaii -• Felton. Mr. Krotel
said that the fact thai Roche had said In his
ante-mortem statement thai Felton shot him in
self-defence would not materially weaken the
case of the prosecution, "if we can prove that
Felton's crime was premeditated Roche's

Mr. Commissioner: I wish to thank you from
my heart for the kind words that you have Just
spoken. At this exposition the great republic
of France has a peculiarly appropriate part; th«
great nation whose people worked so much iri
the past for the discovery and settlement of thia
continent, and the people that took this infar.B
nation by the hand to help it up into the esresa
of powers. One of your publicists has used th«*
expression of the "peac>» of justice," and I am
particularly pleased at wk you said aa to th*
efforts of this country' to bring about thioußh*
out the world th»> "peare of justice."
I wish M propose a toast to President Loub*t
and the French nation and may the bonds of
friendship that have ever united them with rh<%
United. States ■:' America h* *>v»n ttghte'i»d Ir\
th* future.
