NEWS OF TWO CAPITALS.
AFFAIRS IN LONDON. Public Apathy in Both Foreign and Domestic Affairs. (Special by French Cable to Th« Tribune.) (Copyright. 1905. by Th« Tribune Association.) London. May 20. — London is settling down to tte full enjoyment of a brilliant season, con vinced that nothing under the scare heads In the newspapers should be taken seriously. The battle for the mastery of the Pacific has been deferred so long that the skeptics refuse to be lieve it ever will come on, and shrewd observers attach little importance to the contradictory dis patches printed about the passage of Formosa Strait* under the full moon. The change of command in th« Baltic fleet forecasts a new Trafalgar and the renewal of coaling and re fitting operations on the coast of Anam. Even with the rumors of the greatest sea fight of mod ern times in the air, Londoners are enjoying the movement and vivacity in their own pleasure loving capital, and laughing over stories with local color, like the discovery of hidden treasure at old Kensington and the antics of the work man who mistook gold coins of George 111 for brass tokens, and talked of making check chains for cab horses and pelted one another with them. The neutrality difficulties are recog nized as serious, but the optimists dismiss them with the comfortable conclusion that the King will keep peace with France in the direst emer gency, and that the practice of maritime powers win be straightened out by an international conference after the close of the present war. The pessimists cannot bring on a panic in the Block Exchange or disturb the revels of smart society when the public faith In the King as the cleverest diplomatist In Europe is unshaken. The German Emperor remains very much alive, but his English detractors are weary of describ ing Un as a disturber of the peace, and are more inclined to do him Justice as a high minded sovereign. Public apathy extends from foreign to do mestic affairs. The most contradictory accounts are given of the relations of Mr. Balfour and Mr. Chamberlain, and their partisans are striv ing to convir.ee a listless public that they are Intriguing against each other. The two leaders are tired md exhausted by the anxieties of po litical life. Mr. Balfour shows it by bad form en the golfing links and Mr. Chamberlain by a feeb> voice in speaking and a tendency to pro erastinstlon when he confers with his lieuten ants. The truth will not come out until the June conferences are held by the Unionists, but a break between the leaders is not probable, and the government is likely to drift quietly through the session. The country has clearly lost in terest L" p^.ltlcs, and leaves the Prime Minister aofl Mr. Chamberlain to play the game as they Hke. What it wants to know is which yacht will come in ahead. The menace of a general march of the unemployed on London is not liked, nor is ft dreaded. Mr. Chamberlain is not likely to gain ground by making political capital of It Mr. Balfour is on safer ground when he de dares that displays of force will retard the passage of a bill on behalf of the unemployed. Auction sales are one of the minor recrea tions of smart people at the height of the social eeason. The collection of Jewels of a titled lady has b«en eeld this week for $125,000. A Stradl- Tarius violin at another sale has brought $3,750. The most amazing prices for Oriental porcelain hare been recorded at Christies. In the dis persaJ of the famous Louis Huth collection a vase and two beakers, which were sold a few years ago for OM, brought 2,700 guineas, and a Haw. toons pot, which was bought In a barber's shop for 1! shillings 6 pence, commanded 6,900 gutaeas. The pictures sold to-day for good prices Included Gainsborough's portrait of Mrs. Veitrio. Reynolds's portrait of Garrick and other of English masters. When the sale of the Huth silver, furniture, books and prints is com pleted the collector's original investment will be exceeded many times. The portrait of Robert Bums by Nasmyth is coming under the ham n:er, an j Sotnersby Rectory, Tennyson's birth jil&c* will also be auctioned off. This Lincoln shire property, which is brought in to the market by the mortgagee, is no longer used as a rectory, but remains substantially as it was in the poet's early life. The rumors that Ambassador Choate will re main in England after the arrival of his sue - are unfounded. Their ships will pass each ether 'm the Atlantic. Mr. Choate*s final function at the unveiling of the Harvard wln ttow at Bt. Saviour's, Southwark. will be a larger affair than originally planned.

(Special by Fr«nch Cabl« to Th« Tribune.) (Copyright, 1905. by The Tribune Amoclation.) Paris. May 20.— Admiral Gervais and two other high French naval authorities attach cre dence to the Idea that the Japanese will avoid a big naval battle with Rojestvensky on ,the high seas, but will lure the United Russian fleets into Vladivostok, bottle them up there, and uncork them by a repetition of the com bined sea and land attacks that succeeded so effectively at Port Arthur. This is described by a well known French admiral as a skilful ap plication to naval warfare of the principles of jlu-jiuu. Considerable excitement was caused by the French battleship Jaureguiberry being torpedoed during the naval manoeuvres at Qulberon Bay on Thursday night by a Whitehead automobile torpedo, discharged from the French destroyer Sagaie, A naval expert explains the cause of the accident as follows: In actual warfare the steel pointed cone terminating the torpedo is filled with XX) kilogrammes of fulmicotton, and explores by shock against any solid object, such as the hull of an enemy's ship. In the manoeu vres this cone is replaced by a soft lead cone that causes a shock, but does not injure either the ship hit or the torpedo itself. The torpedo that hit tho Jaureguiberry was duly provided with the soft lead enne, but what exploded was the reservoir of compressed air, which supplies the motor force of the latest model Whitehead torpedo, an accident liable to happen at any time in the course of experiments and manoeu vres as carried out in the French and American navies. The Jaureguiberry came within an ace of being destroyed, for she was hit near a par tition of a watertight compartment. Her steel plating was perforated, the shaft and screw of the rudder damaged and one compartment flooded. If hit six inches further forward the Jaureguiberry would have been sunk. M. Delcasse, Minister of Foreign Affair?, is now mere firmly seated in the saddle than at any time in the last six months. The approval of his foreign policy by an overwhelming ma jority in the Chamber of Deputies and the in definite postponement by his parliamentary op ponent* of their Intended Interpellations on Mo rocco and neutrality show that all friction be tween MM. Rouvier and Delcasse is now over and that the whole Cabinet is united. Moreover, the participation of the government in the fare well banquet to General Horace Porter is re garded as an important manifestation of the In creasing bonds of friendship between France and the United States and as indicating the popular desire in France to draw still closer toward the English speaking countries. As M. Delcasse has worked more effectively toward such a result than any other Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Third Republic timely prestige is thus added to his strong personality. Each day some new rumor of steps taken either by President Roosevelt or by King Ed ward toward the restoration of peace between Japan and Russia crops up in the newspapers or on the Bourse, but assurance is given on the highest authority that none of these rumors rest upon any definite move so far taken either in America or Europe, although your correspond ent is authorized to state that great confidence is relt in official circles In Paris that overtures will be made simultaneously by the three great powers through their representatives at St. Pe tersburg and at Tokio, proposing an armistice as noon as the great naval battle takes place, which in the opinion of military men here will decide the issue of the war. Alclde Ebray, who nas been appointed French Consul General at New-York, but who will not probably take over the duties of his office for some months to come, has never yet visited America, although he speaks English fluently and is familiar with English, and especially American, literature. M. Ebray. long connected with the "Journal dcs Debats," is one of the most prominent political editorial writer*- in France. He is young and energetic and has the clear and incisive expression, the frank cordial ity and the sympathetic personality that our countrymen so highly appreciate. M. Ebray is a personal friend of M. Delcasse, and, like M. Delcasse, Is a Journalist by profession. The mainspring of the French foreign policy outlined for the last ten years in the "Journal dcs De bats" by Alclde Ebray has been the appraach ment of France toward England, France's best commercial customer, and toward the Ameri cans, who to-day enjoy more personal popularity In Paris than visitors of any other land. M. Ebray is, moreover, not a mere fair weather friend, but had the courage of his opinions in the squally days of Faehoda and during the war between the United States and Spain. The Paris dog show, which opened to-day in the Tuileries Garden, 1b more brilliant than any of its thirty-five annual predecessors. Altogether fifteen hundred bowwows are in the exhibition, exclusive of come dozen packs of hounds. All the dogs are caged, not benched; that is to say, they occupy spacious boxes with a plentiful sup ply of water and straw, and are free to move about, instead of being chained to a peg. The toy French bulldogs are now highest in fashion able favor «.s domestic pets. Next come the happy Il'*-'*I I *-* Japanese black and white fish eat lr,g spaniels, of which there are some line speci mens. The best pack of foxhounds is that of Henry Ridgway. There is a splendid pa<jk of hcrrlers of the Prince de la Tour d"Auvergne. The show contains thirty excellent German tek els, which Emperor William has brought, so BiU< !• ' n '° vogue.

Her voice Is pure fi nd clear, her methods are simple, and. what is. very rare at the French Academy of Music, Miss Farrar acts admirably. A very weird but re markable play was brought out at Grand Guignol last night, entitled "Obsession." by MM. Lorde and Blnet The action turns upon treatment of Insane patients by a young physi cian, falsely convinced of an hereditary ten to commit murder, who Is by constant obsession 'ed to kill his own son. It is an Edgar Poe-like drama, that seems to have hit a popular spring »n theatrical Parisian taste. The "Journal dcs Debats," referring editorial ly to the Porter banquet, calls attention to the Presence of Sir Francis Bertie, the British Am bassador, and cays the sentiments expressed form a most happy sequence to the speech made by Ambassador McCormick on the occasion of Presenting to President Loubet his credentials. C. I. B. CUBA CELEBRATES. Third Anniversary of the Republic's Birth. Havana. May 20.— The third anniversary of the inauguration of the Cuban Republic was celebrated to-day. The weather was cool and the sky slightly cloudy. The holiday, which was universally observed, was similar to a Fourth of July celebration In the United States. There was a parade of artillery, infantry, mounted rural guards and police, which traversed the Malecon and Prado. The parade was reviewed by Presi dent Palma. who was accompanied by the mem bers of the Cabinet, chiefs of departments, the Mayor, etc.. from a flag decorated pavilion erected on the bastion at Punta Castle Point, where the Malecon rounds Into the Prado. Big crowds gathered along the line of march, and the buildings generally were decorated. By order of the City Council fifty sewing machines were presented at the Mayors office to deserving poor people. There were boat races this after noon and fireworks in the evening. POPE RECEIVES EPISCOPAL EDITOR. Praises Mr. M'Bee's Work and Wishes Him Prosperity. Rome, May 20.— The Pope to-day received Mr. and Mrs. Ellas Mcßee. of New-York. In private audience.

The conversation ended with the Pope presenting: his photograph and auto graph to Mr. Mcßee. Mr. Mcßee is the Editor of "The Churchman." the leading organ of the Epis copal Church In the United States. INCREASING THE BRITISH NAVY.

DEPOSITORS WILL LOSE NOTHING. Responsible Persons Now Control Stock of Cornwall Bank. Xewburg. N. V., May 20 —It Is likely that the de positors of the National Bank of Cornwall, which went into the hands of the Controller of the Cur rency on Friday, will not lose anytning.

What These Women Need Is Pe-ru-na, the Spring Tonic. A nervous person Is one who has only a small stock of nervous vitality. Each day a little more vitality Is expended than is gained. Nervousness is more common among women than men. Women are more apt to overtax their vitality in many ways. Instead of taking nervines, some medicine should be taken that will promote digestion and sound sleep- Sleep is the great invigorator of the nervous system. Good digestion furnishes the proper materials from which nerves are made. Sleep and digestion — these are the corner stones of strong nerves and splendid health. Peruna produces good digestion by correcting any catarrhal condition that may exist in the stomach or bowels. Peruna equalizes the circulation of the blood, breaks up all congestions, and facilitates sound, refreshing sleep. Peruna cures nervousness by removing the cause. Appetite Fickle — Grew Thin and Haggard. Restored by Pe-ru-na. Mrs. Tanzon Vance, 428 3d St.. Portland, Ore., art teacher, member Klin Art Club, also member Kastern Star, writes: "I suffeied for months with stomach trouble and indigestion which threatened to undermine my health. "My appetite was poor and fickle and I would go for days without eating a good meal. "The consequences were that I lost flesh and grew to look thin and haggard. "My doctor tried to help me, hut when I had taken his medi cine for a month without being benefited, I thought it waa time to make a change. "I asked him what he know of Peruna, and he said he did not think it would hurt me to try it. "Aftpr using it for a month I found that I was greatly im proved and In a little over two months I was entirely well. So much for Peruna." Headache — Backache — Extreme Nervousness. Miss Nora Sarland, 1">27 Chapel street, Cincinnati, Ohio writes: "Peruna is the one medicine which I have strong faith in. "I suffered for years with headaches, backaches and extreme nervousness. "Nothing benefited me until I used Peruna and one bottle of this made a great change in me, so I continued its use until per fect health was restored." The Bane of Her Life Was Stomach Trouble. Miss Gertrude Pogue, 1407 Central Aye., Cincinnati, Ohio Sec retary Social Economics Club, writes: "Stomach trouble has been the bane of my existence for a good many years. I tried a number of remedies, but nothing helped me until I took the right medicine. "Peruna took hold of the trouble and soon exterminated it from the system." Troubled with Indigestion— Lost Flesh fvery Day. Miss Margaret Little, 47 Hoyt street, Brooklyn, N. Y. writes: "I have been troubled with constipation and indigestion for over a year. My complexion twae ruined and I was los ing flesh every day. "The doctors advised that I go to a sanitarium, but a number of people advised me to try Peruna before going to that expense, and I did so. "I found that the first bottle regulated my bowels and cleared my complexion, and by the time I had taken six bottles my stomach and digestion were in perfect working order and have remained so ever since. "As this was very much cheaper than going to a sani tarium, I have pv«*ry reason to be grateful, and I am." RIOTING IN CHICAGO. Angry Mobs Attack N on -Union Negro Drivers. Chicago. May 21.— Seeking to avenge the mur der of Enoch Carlson, the eight-year-old boy who was shot and killed last Tuesday by a negro, scores of men armed with revolver? forth laat night determined to drive the non union teamsters from the district. Negroes leaving the branch yards of the Peabody Coal Company at 26th place and Canal-st.. %vere fol lowed and assaulted, and as a result two riots occurred. In which one man was shot and prob ably fatally wounded, many others were hurt and six were arrested. The sheriff declares that the situation is now beyond his control and that the troops will be called for. CONDITIONS IN PANAMA. Mr. Barrett Certain That Yellow Fever Will Be Stamped Out. John Barrett, who has been American Minister to the Republic of Panama for the last ten months and who has been transferred to Colombia, ar rived here yesterday on the steamer Advance from the isthmus. After a visit to Washington, Mr. Barrett will go to his new post at Bogota, Mr. Barrett, in discussing the conditions In Panama, said in part: The situation on the Isthmus of Panama, as far as health conditions are concerned, is a serious one, L>ut not necessarily cause for especial alarm. The sanitary staff, under tru> direction of Colonel Gorgas, has betn making every effort within its power for the last ten or eleven months to stamp out yehow fever. The fight will be continued until It ends in success, but just before my departure there was a recurrence of the dread disease. On the other hand, it must not be lorgotten that among the seven thousand employes of all classes only a small percentage is in hospital, and a urge proportion of the Americans keep in the best of health and have no apparent ftar of the fever. I would not haw it understood that men should hesitate to go to the isthmus. There is no more danger in Panama at present than there is in carrying out pioneer work in any tropical coun try. The average man, if he takes good care of himself, is as safe on the isthmus as he is in New- York. It is important than he face the situation on the isthmus as it is. The policy of the government at Washington and of the Canal Commission is along this line, and there is no desire on the part of either that men should go to the isthmus under false prttences. It is not to be expected that abso lute sanitation can be achieved all at once, but the stamping out of yellow fever will surely b« accomplished. Every confidence is f'lt at Panama in tlif plans of the commission, ami the Panama government is co-operating cordially with the zone government for forwarding the work on the great vaterway. My own relations with thn Panama government have been most agrc-eable. and there is not t;:e slightest foundation for any reports of alleged friction or misunderstanding. The tVt ling in Pan ama is now friendly toward Colombia, and the outlook can be considered as favorable for th* settling of pending qutHtions Involving the United Stat.-s, Colombia and Panama. KILLED BY ELEVATOR. Operator's Head Crushed in Nezc Trinity Building. There are eleven elevators In the new Trinity Building at No 111 Broadway, and as Thomas Gilmartin, who operates car No. 1. was making a, trip up yesterday afternoon at the fifth floor he- noticed that elevator No. '■>. which was de scending, was not under control and that Samuel Goldstein, the operator, was lying on the floor of the lift. Gilmartin stopped at the fourteenth Door and raised an alarm. By this time elevator No. 3 had descended to the basement and was there brought to a stop by the safety clutch. Gold stein we a then found dead in his car with his head badly mangled. It is supposed, after start- Ing the car downward from the twenty-first floor, Goldstein looked out and, while doing so. his chin caught on the sill. In that way the man was held long enough for the roof of the car. which was running tree, to come down and crush the elevator man's bead. RAILWAY DELEGATES ENTERTAINED.
