Transcaueasia, June 26.?The city is outwardly tranquil, but the situatlon is exceed ingly tense. on account of encounters between Mahometan and Armenian bands in the country dtetricts. The Mahometans of Persia are plan ning to cross the border and come to the ald of their corellgionists, being hindered by the Aratu River being flooded. The authorities have selzed all the boats. Both sides are showing equal barbarity. Ar menians in the last week sacked and burned several Mahometan vlllages in the Emchiadzln and Erivan governments, profaning a mosque. violating women and slaying promiscuously. One band of Armenians attacked Cossacks who were aent to preserve order, the Tartars retall ating. Prince Louis Napoleon, commander of an army corps in the Caucasus, has arrived here and is now making a trip through the most turbulent region. He is notifying to the leaders of both sides that the disorders will be crushed by military force if necessary, cost what it may. THE IXSURGEXTS UXITED. AU Opposed to Autocratic Rule? Fears of Officials. St Petersburg. June 26.?The red fiag of re? volt has been raised at Warsaw. Kovno and other places in Russian Poland out of sympathy with the victims of the rioting at Lodz. and so far as these cities are concerned the situation almost approaches the dignity of open rebelllon. The news received in St. Petersburg is meagre on account of the vigorous censorship. but it is evtdent that the troops are being resisted. and repetitions of the sanguinary encounters at Lodz are anticipated. The three big socialistic parties in Russian Poland are well organized and have some arms, but the authorities say they have no chance of success single handed. Neither the Jewish So cialists. called the Bund. nor the Social Demo crats are separatists. as are those known as the Polish Socialists. but they are all bitterly op? posed to the existing government. The affair at Lodz has eeemingly precipitated a crisis. but the authorities declare that there is no ma chinery for a general insurrection behind It This may, however, increase the slaughter in crushing the outbreak. Many people belicve that Governor General Maximovitch is hnrdly equal to the task. As long as the trouble Is confined to Russian Poland the authorities believe it can bc kept in hand. The main danger lies in lts spread to Socialist organizations in other parts of Russia, with which those in Russian Poland are closely allled. In tho mean time the Caucasus is afiame with an insurrection on a big scale. Peasant up ri?mgs have also recurred in several provmces, notably Kharkoff, where the cstates of half a dozen nobles have been burned, and the men resisted Cossacks with arms, wounding several of the soldiers.

The Danish cadet train ing schooner Georg Stage was rammed and sunk by the Brltish steamer Ancona near here last night. The Georg Stage sank In one and a half minutes. Twenty-two cadets were drowned and fifty-seven were rescued. The boys were all in their bunks at the time of the disaster The sky was overcast, but it was not so dark that objects could not be seen at somo distance. The Ancona was considerably damaged along her water line. The port authorities have placed an embargo on the Ancona, which will remain here until the inquiry into the collosion is com pleted. First Officer Myhre, of the Georg Stage, at tributes the accident to the Ancona changing her course. He said the steamer's bow crashed eeven feet into the training schooner's side, brlnging down masts and rigging and prevent Ing many of the cadets from gaining the deck. Those who were not entangled in the wreckage Eprang on board the Ancona and assisted in launchlng tho lifeboats. Myhre jumped Into the water and rescued several boys who were en? tangled in the rigging^_ The Georg Stage was a schooner of 206 tons and was 103 feet long. Apparently she was a training vessel for the mercantile marine, and was owned by a private firm of Copenhagen. LORD CURZON TO RESIGN? Rumors in Simla Discredited by Mr. Brodrick in Commons. Simla, June 26.?It is free!y rumored that the viceroy, Lord Curzon of Kedleston, has either already tendered his resignation or shortly will do so, in consequence of the decision of the home government whereby Lord Kitchener, commander in chief of ths forces in India, has complete control of the army in India. Two special meetings of the Indian Council have been held since the publication in London of the Blue Book referrlng to Lord Kitchener's plans, the approval of which is consldered to be a se vere blow to Lord Curzon, as he and practically the whole council unanimously advised against the decision ultimately adopted. The keenest exciternent prevails In official circles here. ?'The Times of India" says that India cannot afford to lose '"either of the great men, LorJ Curzon or Lord Kitchener, who dominate her affairs." London. June 20.?Whllo it is consldered quite popsible that Lord Curzon may tender his resig? nation in consequence of the course taken by the home government directly at variance with hia views, it !s not believed that it will be accepted or that the viceroy will inslst on quit ting his post at least until after the Prince and Princess of Wales have completed their vislt to India, lasting from November to March. A Question asked in the House of Commons this afternoon ellclted from the Secretary for India. Mr. Brodrick, the statement that the gov? ernment had received no information to the effect that Lord Curzon had any desire or in tention of resignlng the viceroyalty of India. MR.

Tfrom the TRinrxE bi'beau.] Washington. June 26.-Spurred on by the urgent representatlons of the President that the utmoet expedition should be pursued in nrrang ing for the meeting of the Russian and Japanese peace plenipotentiaries in order that further loss of life in Manchuria may be reduced to a imnl mum. both belligerents have slgnifled their will ingness to send their representatives to Wn.?h ington in time for a conference to begin withln the first ton days of August. The following offlcial statement was made at the Whtte House: The President has received from both the Rus? sian and Japanese governments the statement that the plenipotentiaries of the two countrlos will meet in the United States during the first ten davs of August, and the President has ex pressed to both governments the wish that tne meeting should take place. if posslble, on Augus, 1. and, if not on that date, then at the earliest date thereafter. ? It is not only the earnest hope of the Presi? dent but almost his belief, that a meeting can be arrnnged on or close to August 1. It has been caloulated that the Japanese plenipotentiaries can reach WTashington withln not to exceed eightcen days after their departure from Tokio, so that they would be able to reach Wrashington by July 30, even if they did not sail from Japan until July 12 or 13, which would allow them nearlv three weeks to prepare the large amount of daia which they will doubtless consider neces sary to bring with them. Informal informatlon has been received to tho effect that M. Nelidoff and Baron Rosen have been selected as the Russian plenipotentiaries and that the questlon is now being discussed aa to whether it will be necessary to appoint a third, with the probamlitles in favor of a dele gation of two only. Informatlon of a like character is to the effect that Minister Takahira has been chosen as a Japanese plenipotentiary and that Fleld Marshal Yamagata will be a secpnd, although the decision with regard to the latt'er is not flnal. It should be added, however, that no formal noflfication of these selections has reached the White House. The German Ambassador suggested to the President last night that Deer Park, Md., would prove a convenient and sultable place for hold ing the adjourned meetings of the peace con ferrees. It is understood that this suggestion is receiving favorable consideration, as it ls be lieved Washington during August will prove too hot for the serious work which will confront the conferrees. While no decision regarding the hall in wMch the conferrees will meet in Washington has been arrived at, the rooms ordinarily assigned to the use of Senators and Representatives in the Library of Congress, together with certaln smaller adjo'ining chambers, are being tentative ly discussed as presenting exceptional ad vantages as a place of meeting. When Ambassador Jusserand left the White House, after his call to bid the President good by to-day, he stated that from what he has learned the preparations for the peace negotia tions are advancing most favorably. and. he added, "they reflect great credit upon President Roosevelt." He said that he knew nothing eon cerning the negotiations beyond what was con tained in the formal statement lssued at the White House to-day. Just before the departure of the President'* speeial train this evening, Count Cassini, the Russian Ambassador. arrived at the station. having been unable to reach the White House to-day to bid the President fareweU. He was met on the platform by Mr. Roosevelt, and they held a hurried conversation, during which they clasped hanis warmly. When the Ambassador left the train the signal was given for the start. The President waved his farewells until the speeial was well out of the trainsheds. ?-? OYAMA PREPAKES ATTACK. ACTIVITY ON FLANKS. Russian Staff Skeptical?No Armis tice in Sight. Hua-Shu Pass, June 26.?Numerous small bodies of Japanese scouts have appeared in the region of either Russian fiank, and it Is feared that they are Intended to soreen the turning cperations of the Japanese, as before the battle of Moukden. Chinese report that fianking movements have been alieady begun, but the Russian staff denies this. Traders coming from Bedoun say that the Japanese are advancing in that direction from Hsin-Min-Tun. Vaguo dispatches reaching here through the offlcial paper, which is edlted for the army, mako the conditions under which peace is to be dis? cussed indifferently understood. Although Gen erals Linevitch and Kuropatkin express the con viction that Russia is drtfting toward peace, no action looking to an armistice has yet been taken. On the contrary, the commanders appear to regret that at the tlme when the army has reached lts maximum str%ngth it is likely to b* deprived of victory. St. Petersburg, June 26.?The question of a poss*ible armistice still remaina in abeyance, Japan, it is understood, declinlng even to take tho matter up until the issues involved in the Washington meeting are deflnltely settled. In the mean time there have been heavy downpours in Manchuria, and the rainy season may enforce a suspension of mintary operations before di plomacy can act. MR. BALFOUR UPHELD. House Refuses to Pass Motion of Censure for Army Scandal. London, June 26.?The House of Commons to night defeated the Opposition motion of censure on the government in connection with the army stores scandal in the South Afrlcan war by a vote of 32'J to 2o5, after a debate occupying the afternoon and night sessions. The motion was proposed by Sir Robert Threshie Reid as follows: The conduct of the Government in connection with the suppiy and disposal of stores and with sa!e;- and refunds to contractors in South Africa at the end of the war and the failure of the "ovcrnmeiit to inquire nromptly into and to Seal with these transactions deserve the censure of the House. The government acted mainly on the de fensive, disclaiming responsibllity and rather laying the blame on Lieutenant General Sir William Francis Butler, chairman of the War Offieo Commlttee, for the publlcation of the re? port on this matter issued June 14. It was ln timated that the offlcers involved mlght yet be able to exonerate themselves. as the evidence taken betore the commlttee had not been fully substantlated. In the course of the debate Premier Balfour, the Secretary for WTar, H. O. Arnold-Forster, and the Secretary for India, William St. John Brodrick, former Secretary for War, underwent a fierce cross-examlna'ion, which they adroltly sustained. While there was a large attendance of mem bers and the galleries were well filled, not much importance was attached to the debate, ln view of the recent appointment of a com mission, with liberal powers, to inquire into tb? matt*M= GREAT BRITAIN BLAMEP. GEBMAN PRESS BITTER. England U Accuscd of Fostering Trouble with France. Berlln, June 26.?The second intervlew of M. Bihourd. the French Ambassador, with Chan cellor von Billow was devoted to a detailed dis cussion of the French note. but the Foreign Office abstains from giving any informatlon re garding the results reached. It !s semi-offl cially stated that the German answer has not yet been drawn up. and therefore the govern? ment and press resent the assertion in the London newepapers that Germany refuses to take into consideration every point raised by Premier Rouvier The press displays a growing impatlence at what is regarded as a British attempt to em broil Germany and France. It is noted with satlsfactlon that some of the French ofneinls begin to Interprct Great Britain's interest in the Franco-German difficulty in the same way. The newspapers quote approvingly the words of General de Galllffet, the former War Mlnister of France. that Great Britaln alone wants war between France and Germany, as it would be to her own advantage and at France's expense. Slmilar views are expressed in the German press, the writers arguing that Great Britaln, having got rid of Russia for a generation through the war in the Far East, is deliberately working to fan the flames of the old hate be? tween France and Germany, and cause another war, which must weaken her only formidable rivals in Western European politica. It ls noted that the relatlons between Germany and Great Britaln never were worse than at this moment. Hints dropped In ofncial clrcles indicate that chagrin was felt at the Berlln court because King Edward sent no more im portant representative to the Crown Prince's wedding than the young Prince Arthur of Con naught; while lt is plainly lntlmated that the failure of Emperor Willlam to send any repre? sentative to the wedding of Princess Margaret of Connaught was intended to give expression to resentment at this slight. Contrast ls then drawn between the Emperor's actlon now and his care to be represented at every Important family gatherlng at "Windsor Castle In the ltfe time of Queen Victoria. In view of this tension between Berlln and London it is believed that Germany will make many concessions in order to reach an under standing with France. The newspapers contlnue to treat the Moroc can matter, as far as lt is discussed at all, in a thoroughly pacific tone. It is believed that several days will elapse before the German answer is ready. Parls, June 26.?Although Germany*s formal reply to the French note has not yet been re? ceived, there is reason to believe that the inter? vlew between Chancellor von BUlow and M. Bihourd, the French Ambassador to Germany, resulted in fully foreshadowlng Germany's in tentions. The results of the intervlew are now In the possesslon of Premier Rouvier. but he is not llkely to make them known before the meet lng of the Council of Mlnisters to-morrow. when the status of the negotiations will be fully dis? cussed. A definite decision will not be long deferred. Several propositlons are under con? sideration with the view of terminating the crisis. M. Rouvier conferred at noon with Leon Bourgeols and Jules Cambon, the French Am? bassador to Spaln. The former has been under consideration for a speclal mission to Berlin. It is understood that M. Rouvier will recelve Prince von Radolin, German Ambassador to France. after the meetiug of the Council of Ministers to-morrow. Public tension over the controversy is much relieved, the Bourse sharing in the improvement. _????# GERMAN REPLY AT PARIS Report Not Denied by Officials? The Ontlook Favorable. Paris. June 27.?A strong impression prevalls that Germany's reply to the French note re garding Morocco reached Paris late last night and that it will be presented in the course of an intervlew between Prince von Radolin, the Ger rran Ambassador, and Premier Rouvier to-day. The officials neither conflrmed nor denied the report that the reply had been received, maln taining the strictest reserve. Among tho diplomatists gathered at a reception given at the British Embassy, however, the opinion pre vailed that the reply was In the hands of the French officials and the view was taken that the sltuation had undergone appreclable im? provement. Although it was considered that the German response would not solve all difflculties. yet it was thought that the ground would be cleared for reaching a definite understanding. The "Figaro" this morning says definitely that the reply has arrived from Berlin and, though admitting that it is not acquainted with the real text, it says it is able to announce that Germany does not fall into the French view re gardlng a preliminary arrangement relative to the scope of the conference, thus holding to the original point that no two powers have the right to lav down points for discussion at a confer? ence called by the Sultan of Morocco. The "Figaro" adds that French opinion is prepared for adhesion to the idea of a conference by the conciliatory attitude displayed by Germany in the pour parlers. BEEGIUK HAS A WAR SCARE. Report That France Sent Warning Regard ing Defences on the Meuse. London, June 27.?The Brussels correspondent of "The Daily Mail" says that France, fearing a sudden attack through Belgium, has officially warned the Belgian Minister at Paris of the necessity of rendering effective the fortiflcatlons of Antwerp and along the Meuse.

NO ONE TO BLAME, SAYS CORONER. Coroner Scholer made an investigatlon at the scene of the disaster. He afterward said he was satisfled that the accident was due entirely to the effect of the storm. and not to any careless ness in construction. Eyewitnesscs said last night that the force of the wlnd was appalling. Edward P. Burke, a bricklayer on an adjoming buildlng. told the Coroner that when the storm began Lawlor and his companions went to the flfty story and began to put in extra shonng for the wall, while the wlnd blew so hard that the six-foot chtmney of a dummy engine in the street was blown from lts rivets and landed thlrty teet away, while heavy wooden hOTsea were being blown from neighboring butldings like ao many pieces of paper. llwle?and the others worked hard, and when the? started to desccnd the wall had been made as safe as possible under the cireumstances. The men were drenched at their work. and Burke, who had taken refuge on the steps of the ?*">??* old Ottendorfer mansion across the street, shouted Joklng remarks to his friend Lawlor as to the advisability of getting an umbrella Lay, ler and the other men nnally started for the street. They had gone as far as the f rst floor when the crash came. At the Hebrew Orphan Asylum, on Amster dam-ave., four hlgh chimneys were demolished and several windows blown out. A very large and old maple at Manhattan-st. and Amster dam-ave. was blown down. The tree struck and demolished a lamppost in falling. At 128th-st. and Park-ave. three large oak trees were blown down, falling diagonally across the street. Along Rlverside Drlve and the Lafayette Boulevard a numbcr of small trees planted in the last flve years were uprooted and strewn across the streets. ? One of the humorous features of the storm was the way the wlnd cleaned out variou? wagons of the Street Cleaning Department. These wagons were fllled with papers, and when the storm struck them tarpaulln covers and the contents were blown away in a twinkllng. In The Bronx large trees which were land marks in that section were uprooted, and some of them blown several feet. ROOF CARRIED A BLOCK. No. 1,037 East 176th-st., the resldence of John Kelly, a bookbinder, is of frame construc? tion, with a tin roof. During the height of the storm the wind got under the roof, and, Uftlng it bodily. carried it a complete block, flnally dashing it agalnst a lamppost. which was de? molished. The raln was falling in a deluge and the upper portlon of the Kelly realdence was ?io?ked. STORM CURIOUSLY LOCAL.
