tMd PNaa.)
Ponrmouth. N. H , Aug. 10-A dear sky and
a cool breeze ushered ia the second day of the
Peace Conference The weather has not been
excessively hot since the arrival of the plenipo
lentaries, although in the middle ot the day ln
the navy yard their- has been a reminder of the
aunun* : _L Witte has remarked several
times on the v.armih. which seems to affect him
aomewhat unplc-asantly.
The guests of the Hotel Wentworth, as usual,
thronged the verandas, even before there was a
paaaflillltj that the foreigners would appear. lt
was a Bew r.nnutes after W o'cloek when the
Japanese pienipotentiaries appeared. and at
MO, in automobiles. started for the navy yard.
M. Witte ar.d Baron Rosen, accompanied by
M N bokofT, also left the hotel ln a motor car.
They were precedod by a mai! coach in which
were Prince Kudacheff, M. Korostovetz and M.
de Plancoir. The Japanese pienipotentiaries had
about ten minutes' start ot the Russians from
the hotel. Baron Komura, Mr. Takahira and Mr.
Sato sat in one seat. Mr. Dennison was beside
the thaurfeur. The secretarles went ahead. one
of them carrytng a suit case whlch was supposed
to . ? -itain the credentials of his chief. He re?
fused to let tbe bag leave his hands and twice
declined the offer of the porter to put the
precious luggage in the automobile.
Neither Baron Kcmura nor Mr. Takahira
seemed to notice the crowds surrounding the
hotel entranee. Both were pufflng intently on
their cigarettes and looked straight ahead. a
pose which was advantageous to a man with a
xr.ovlng picture machine who wound it in their
faces as they passed. As M. Witte and Baron
Rosen passed the hotel veranda they doffed their
hats several times to the crowd and laughed
good naturedly at ihe photographere. The Jap?
anese envoys reached the navy yard at 9:40
o'cloek, and the Rus6ian party arrived a few
minutes later. Boih went lmmediately to the
conference room in the general stores building.
Immediaiely after the pienipotentiaries and
their seeretaries had gathered In the conference
room and exchanged complimentary words,
partly in French and partly ln Japaneae. M.
Witte produced a diplomatic note addressed to
the Japanese pienipotentiaries in connection
wlth thelr failure to present their credentials
at yesterday's meeting. The contents of this
note cannot be learned. but there is a basls for
the belief that M. Witte expressed surprise that
the Japanese ple lipotentiaries. after having
from the outset of the preliminary negotlations
lald so much stress on the necesslty of examin
lng credentials before the first step was taken.
ahould at the first meeting have failed to bring
with them full offlcial leiters. It was the un?
derstanding of the Russian envoys that Baron
Komura would decline even to open negotiations
of the most informal character unless he had
satlsfied himseif of the full powers cf M. Witte.
Hletorieal precedents are quoted ln the note to
ehew the irregularity of yesterday's proceedings.
The purpose of the Russian note was to make
the permanent record complete, and make it
show clearly the attitude of the pienipotentiaries
from the begir.ning of the conference. The note
was made part of the permanent record without
objection on the part of the Japanese.
The offlcial credentials were then exchanged.
As each side previously had an opportunity to
examine them, this was largely a matter of form.
A somewhat general discussion followed, ln
which Baron Komura and M. Witte spoke
frankly of the purpose of the meeting. The
best of spirit was manifested. and the discussion
widened. Baron Rosen and Mr. Takahira taking
pari. and French and English being used. ln
the course of the exchanges it was agreed that
Baron Komura should lmmediately present the
Japanese terms. an 1 M. Witte promised to give a
r-piy at th*- earliest possible moment. In order
to avold misunderstandings it was arranged
that ihe reply and all formal communlcations
should be made ln writing. This understanding
having been reached, Just before the session ad
Journed Baron Komura handed the doeument to
M. Witte, who thrust it in his pocket without
opening lt. While the Japanese went to lunch?
eon M. Witte and Baron Rosen went to their
jrivate rooms, where they examlned the docu
n ent on which so much depends. A desire for
expedition was expressed on both sides.
The morning session lasted exactly two hours
__id waa of a most friendly character. Tho
prlenlpo-entlariea and their secretarles sat on
opposite sides of a large table. Baron Komura
and lf- Wirte faced each other in the centre,
Baron Rosen sitting on M Witte's left and Mr.
Takahira on Baron Komura's right. Mr. Ko
Toetuveta sat next to Baron Rosen. and Mr. Ot
chiai rs-xt to Mr. Takahira. On the other side
of the prindpala sat Messrs. Adachi and Sato,
of the Japanese. and Messrs Nabokoff and
Kudacheff. of the Russian suite.
lmmediately after adjournment M. Witte set
his se-cretaries to work to put into cipher the
tonditior.s of peace presented by Baron Komu?
ra. whlch were cabled to St Petersburg for
submis.-ion to the Czar. M Witte personally
put into cipher his own eomment on the char?
acter of the conditlons and his viewa as to what
action should be taken. While engaged in thia
ta.-k he retired to one of the rooms set apart
for the Russian mission.
Interference with Their Deliberations For
bidden by President Roosevelt.
(By The Assoclated Press )
?Portsmouth. N. H., Aug. lO.?Under Presi?
dent Roosevelt's direction everything ls being
done to see that the deliberations of the pien?
ipotentiaries are not disturbed and that the
negotlations take place "exclusively" between
th.e br-iligerents. Assistant Secretary Peirce,
while making daily reports to the Preaident, is
aaafining himseif to looking after the comfort
and entertainment of the envoys, scrupulously
avoiding any action which might be interpreted
aa a desire on the part of the United States to
influence the negotiations. Mr. Peirce to-day

Russian Jews Object to Asking Favors from
Czar's Representative.
The proposed Jew ish petition to M. Witte. on
behalf of their Russian brethren, continues to
agitate the Jews of the East Sido.
The unpopularity of the eontemplated appeal
seems to increase every day. and representatives
of thirty-eight Jewish socictic-s will. it is said.
ask President Krause. of the lndependent Or?
der of B'nal B'rlth, not to make any representa

They declare that if, despite their protest, the
petition is presented, they will organize a mon

dissatisfaction of the opposlng societles.

Witte, Joel Slonem. one of the radical Zlonlsts,
There are more than flve thousand Jewish or
ganizations in the United States. They have
not been asked wnether they want a petition to

Body of Eagles' Treasurer Found
Xear Providence.
Providence. R. I.. Aug. 10.?The body of Fred
A. Broemel. of Paterson. N. J . was found late
to-day ln a secluded spot at Rocky Point. a
shore resort. He had shot himself in the head a
day or two ago. On his body were found papers
indlcatlng that Broemel was treasurer of Pat?
erson Aerle, No. 43, of the Order of Eagles.
Documents were also found showlng that the
man was a member of Calumet Lodge cf Odd
Fellows, Binghamton. N. Y., and of Queen City
Lodge of Masons, of Cincinnati. No valuables
were found in the elothing. nor was there a clevv
to show the season for the suicide.
Paterson, Aug. 10.?Fred A. Broemel. who is
reported to have commltted suicide at Rocky
Point, R. I.. disappeared from Paterson about
flve weeks ago. He was treasurer of Paterson
Aerle Xo. 43, Fraternal Order of Eagles, and
Audltor Isaac A. Lewis is now making a careful
examination of the books. Kls disappearance
was as completely shrouded in mystery as that
of Mayor Belcher. Broemel was almost as well
known in Paterson as the Mayor, and his dis?
appearance occasioned much surprise. Before
coming here he was spectal agent for the Pru
dentlal Insurance Company in Cincinnati, and
was the member of a Masonic lodge in that city.
He was born ln Newark and was about forty
flve years old.
Agent Persuades Her to Sign Re
lease When Delirious, Family Says.
Miss Julia Wright Wallaee, of Xo. 14 Scher
merhorn-st.. Brooklyn, who was severely burned
when a fuse blew out on a trolley car returnlng
from Brighton Beach on Monday night, died
from her injuries in the Kings County Hospital
yesterday. Members of the family are indignant
because, they say, a cla-im agent of the Brook?
lyn Rapid Transit Company was aliowed to get
to her bedside on Tuesday afternoon. It is
charged that, although she was deliiious at the
time. the agent secured her signature to a docu
ment releasing the company from damages on
account of the accident In consideration of $200.
Dr. F. W. Smith. the house physician. who
was away at the time, says that no member of
the staff or attache of the hospital had any
authorlty to permit any one to see a patient
except on a permit from the Department of
Charitles or the superintendent of the hospital.
He has not learned whether such a permit was
presented. Bven if such a permit had been
granted, Dr. Smith says that under the condi?
tions he would not have deemed it advisable
to allow. a clalm agent to see a dying woman.

al! American Interests are seriously affected
and other nationalities at Shanghai are becom

The offlcial class in China are taking no part in

Many Cases Laid to Bathing in

With forty typhoid fever patients ln the Nor

ease continues to spread through the Bay Ridge
.111.1 Bath Beach districts of Brooklyn. Dr. J.
P. Latta and Dr. P. R. Crane. who are treating
the caaes in tho hospital, attribute the epidemic
to the use of impure water and to bathing in
tho Lower Bay. Strength was given to the lat?
ter theory yesterday when three brothers were
removed from a house in Bath Beach to the Irs
pttai, The young men were all suffering from
typhoid fever. the origin of which has been
traced to bathing off Bath Boaah, where sew
age flows w ithin a few yarda of the beach. The
pathnts were almost daily bathers and were
stricken ln ouiek succession two days ago.
In Bay Rldge and Borough Park three more
caaea were reported yesterday. In the last two

the Norweglan Hospital. Xone of these caseg
is expected to prova fatal. ln South Brooklyn.

At Bath Beach the reports of typhoid fever
have played havoc With tho summer boarder

it is said a mecting of the citizens will be held
to-night to consider what can he done to pre
vent the epidemic from spreading. The doctors
ln some instances aro now refusing to give the
number of cases under their observation for
publication. No deaths have resulted there,
though almost every doctor is working night
and day to check the malady.
In the vicinity of S6*th-st. and 13th-ave.,
where the disease has made its appearance
within the last few days, the cause ls laid to
the Dyker Meadows swamp, which covers nearly
twenty acres adjoining this place. The swamps
are breeding places for mosquitoes. which are
adding to the discomforts of those living ln that
distriet. The swampland adjoining L'lmer Park,
where similar conditions prevail, ls now being

The streets of Bath Beach and Bay Rldge

The inspectors of the Health Department
made a house to house tour through Benson
hurst and Bath B-ach yesterday motning ln
search of typhoid fever patients. It ls the ln
tention of Drs. Biggs and Billings to take all
possible precautions against the spread of the
disease. They. with Commissioner Darlington,
have prepared a circular letter, entitled "How
to Avold the Contraction and to Prevent the
Spread of Typhoid Fever," This will be put tn
the hands of all people living ln infected houses.
It says ln part:
The disease is transmitted usually by means
of water. milk or food contalning the typhoid
bacillus, or it may be contracted directly from
persons having the disease. by people who have,

strongly advised that at present ln Brooklyn

from the clty'a mains is less likely to be con

bottled water or water which has been boiled.
All milk, the aource of which is not absolutely
beyond suspicion. should also be boiled or paa
teuriaed. Oystera should not he eaten during
the months "that typfapid fever is prevalent. All
food supplies (moat. milk. vegetablea, etc.)
should be carefully protected against flies. and
flies should not be permitted access to the
kitchen. nor to the room in which the meats are

be Btrictly avoided.

New-Orleans. Aug. Ka?While hundreds al
the Cathollcs of New-Orleans were praying ln
the old St Louis Cathedral, on? of the olde3t and
largest ehurches in America, and the body of
Archbishop Chapelle Waa iying In state before
the altar. the physiclans of the United States
Marine Hospital Corps were clrculating through
the alsles of the church. burning sulphur and
other disinfectants, and the odor of the fumiga
tion materials mingled with that of the Incense
from the altar.
The old St. Louis Cathedral is located dlrectly
r.ext to the old Canildo. where many cases of
yellow fever have originated during the list
three weeks. The Marlne Hospital auti.
feared that some of the infected mos|
might have found an abiding place ln the ca
thedral and wished to protect the vast nurnber
of people who were attending maases for the
dea-1 prelate. They took strong measurea, al
lowlng no feellng of reverence for the sanctity
of the church to interfero jvlth, thelr duties.
Although all the better classes of citizens in
New-Orleans are devoting thelr time. labor and
money to the e'eaning of the city. the labor
unions of the city yesterday tried to tie up all
the work whlch was being done They found
that a few of the men employed belonged to the
varioua unions and they prornptly tried to for
niulate tho scale of wages which the laborers.
who are oiling the cisterns and e'eaning gutters,
should demand.
A commlttee of these labor unions called on
Dr. Warner to-day and demanded an advan<. e
of 30 cents per day ln their wages. The
prornptly turned down. and a nurnber of them
quit work.
The United States Marine Hospital authorities
to-night declded that the funerai of Archbishop
Chapelle must be held at 9 o'ciock to-morrow
morning, and that it must be as quiet as possl
ble, so that the smallest possible nurnber of peo?
ple who attend the servlces shall not be sub*
Jected to yellow fever Infection.
The Marine Hospital authorities are now in
absolute charge of the hospital here. They
have seventeen men on the ground. and expect
ten more to-morrow. Three additional men
came in to-day. Among those who are expected
to arrive to-morrow are Surgeons Lavender and
Frost, who have had long experience in fighting
the yellow fever.
Surgeon White. who is in charge of the situa?
tion here, has divided the city into seventeen
districts, and has ordered each one of his men
to make a house to house canvass to discover
any cases of yellow fever which may have oc?
curred during the past two months. or whlch
now exist. He has said that if he knew the lo
cation of every case in the city he would be
able to stamp it out quickly. and his first step
