a weaithy r.ro.'klyn p.imhcr dea'et. whose ell
home is at No. 1.008 Bushwiek-ave. The prie

hreaker. being the largest transaction in cur,
try r.al estate on Long Island ln many years.
The property embraee* four hundred aerei
and extends from the bay northward two mile
and has a mi'.e of wnter front and 2,860 f*et o
frontage on the .South Country Road. The hous
is one of the largest la the residentlal s*otioi
between Babylon and Oakdale, and was buil
thirty-on*. years ago by the late Henry B. Hydi
at a cost of more than $100,000. The house is c
Knglish style of architecture and is imposing i
appearance. Its interior flnish is mahogany an
oak
Since fts erection the house has heen one 0
the show places of Long Island. It was her
that Henry B. Hyde spent his summers until hi
death. when the property was hequeathed to hi
son. James Hazen Hyde. The latter at one
began many important changes. and until wlth
in a few months has annually spent tens o
thousands of dollars on the premises Amon
the improyements was an $SO,000 carriage barr
a S30.000 sewage plant, and a canal, leadin
from the bay half way to the main road, whic
was dredged at a cost of $16,000. The presen
price paid ls only a little more than half th
tcta' cost.
A large addition was *reeted on the northweu
corner, and the place was equipped with every
thing necessary for the entertalnment of guest
and house parties. In the rear of the barns an
stables is a deer pen. The lakes are well stocke
with trout.
Senator Depew and Mrs. Depew wero frequen
visitors at the place. Mr. Hyde also entertaine
many titled foreigners. including the Prince c
Siam and the Duke and Duchess of Marlboi

tary. C. F. Williamson. Mr. Bossert has pui
che.sod the place, he says, for a country hom
and has no intention of disposing of any poi
tion of lt. The terms of the sale include th
herd of eight elk, one whlte deer, the. fari
horses and wagons, the birds in the house an
the swans in the lake. together wjth a h_r
of eattle. Mr. Hyde reserves his string of horse
and all carriages and furniture, although M:
Bossert has a preferred right to purehas* th
furniture when it is offered for sale.
Mr. Bossert is the owner of a country hom
near Lawrence. Long I?land, hut wanted
larger place.
A fortnight a?" an effort was made to sell th
property to the Automobile Association (

AUTO CRASH AT NEWPORT

[bt TEi.Ec.RArn to the raxsuva.]
Newport, Fl. I.. Aug. 19.- Vlnson F. Walsh. tha
eighteen-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas
F. Walsh, of Washington, was killed this af
t*rnoon in an automoblle accident, and his sis
ter. Miss Evelyn Walsh; Mrs. James L. Ker?
noehan. Harry Oelrichs Herbert C. Pe 11, jr., an-.
the chauffeur were more or less injured. Th-5
Newport cottage colony is this evenlng throwr
into sorrow and mourning.
The accident oecurred late this afternoon al
the creek near Easton's Beach. The news spreac
rapidly through the cottage colony and the city
and there was soon a. great crowd at the seen*
but before many arrived the victims had beer
removed to the hospital or their homes, and al
lhat was left was Ihe wreck of the automoblle.
Mr. Y\ _lsh was looked upon as one of the b**1
automoblle drivers in Newport. With the party
already mentioned he was returning from the
Clambake Club In a 40-horsepower Mercedei
machine which lately arrived from abroad foi
the young man. Approaching the beach then
is a steep hill. and automobile drivers are in th<
habit of letting their machines speed at thh
point. Those who saw the machine coming saj
that lt was golng at great speed, and it was no
mismanagement that caused the accident. bu
the bursting of one of the rear tires.
CAR SWERVES FROM COURSE.
As the machine neared the little wooden brld_(
whlch crosses the creek. these spectators say
the tlre burst, and the car was going at suc!
speed that it swerved from Its course, orashec
through the wooden raillng at the right side o
the bridge and plunged Into the creek. about si_
feet below. One part of the rail passed throug.
the body of the machine and another struck Mr
* j Walsh in the head. inflicting the injury whlcl
J j caused his d*ath. The crash was heard for somi
distance.
The flrst to reach the scene were three mei
who were on the beach near by?C. M. Bailey, o
Newport; W. Holt. of Boston, and W. F. Thomp?
son, of Beverly, Mass. Police Inspector Denmai
and Patrolman Watson, who were at the beach
saw the machine coming at great speed ani
hastened to the scene.
When the rescuers arrived at the creek the:
found that the machine had turned completelj
over, and that the oecupants were buried under
neath. Fortunately there was little water ir
the creek. and ther* v.-as no danger of any oni
drowning. The work of extrlcating the part:
was at once begun. but before it was startet
Thomaa _F_. Walsh a-riv. d a* the scene. Vlnsot
Walsh was unconscious, and attention was paP
to hlm flrst. his sister Imploring that he b<
looked after before she was cared for. Am
bulances had been summoned, and Mr. Walsl
was placed in one and hurried off to the New
port Hospital, aecompanied by his father. H<
had been in the institution only a few minute:
when he died. He did not regatn consciousness
ALL IN PARTY INJURED.
Th* rest of the party were wet through am
none of them escaped, Miss Walsh being tht
most badly injured. She had a. fracture of th(
leg just below the knee and was badlj
bruised about the bedy. as were the rest of th(
party. They were sent ln carriages to thei:
homes and physicians summoned, as well ai
trained nurses, and this evenlng it ls said tha
it is not thought that the injuries will resul
fatally to any of the victims. The machine fc
a total wreck. Those who saw it marvel tha
any of the party should have escaped death, ai
the weight of the machine was enough to crusl
the life out of them. The water in the creek. i'
is thought. prevented the full weight from fall
ing on them.
There was a large party at the Clam Bak)
Club and they rushed to the scene and asslste.
in rescuing the victims. Among ihese were Mrs
J. A. Bttllman, Henry Whitehouse and H. G
Gray.
After Miss Walsh had been looked after at hei
home Mrs. Walsh Insisted on going to the hos
pital to look after her boy, not knowing that h?
had died. This was broken to her by her hus
band on her -rival at the hospPal. It wa:
thought best not to tell Miss Walsh of he:
brother's death until she has recovered fron
the shock she sustained. A large number o:
cottagers hastened to the Walsh cottage anc
offered any assistance possible. and messages 01
sympathy were sent from all ov?r the cottage
colony.
Mrs. Kernoehan is a well known cross country
rider. She has a large kennel cn Long Island
Mr- Oelrichs is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charle?
M. oelrichs. of this city. and Mr. Pell is th*
son of Herbert C. Pell, or" New-York.
Vlnson Walsh was fined *f20 and coBts foi
speeding his automoblle in Middletown on Au?
gust 9.
CONDITION OF THP: VICTIMS.
Dr Stewart. who was called to the Walshes
to attend Miss Walsh, found that she was suf
f*rlng from a common fracture of the righ
thigh, and other than a few bruises was no:
seriously injured and will soon be about. Sh'
Ia recovering from the shock. Mr. and Mrs
Walsh are completely overcome. a.nd P- F Col
Her. a personal friend of Mr. Walsh, has tanei
. harge of everything, and stated to-night thal
as yet no arrangements had been mad* for th(
funeral.
An examination of Vlnson Walsh at the
hospital failed to flnd any marks on his body
and the injury that caused his death must hav*
been concussion of the brain.
Mrs. Kernoehan had to take to her bed, am
this evening is in a bad condition from shock
Her condition, however. is n..t su.-h as to caust
any alarm.
Mr. Oelrichs was hysterical on being takei
home and is now suffering from the shock
but lale to-nlght he was said to be much better
Mr. Pell .scaped with fewer Injuries than an>
of the party and early in ih* evening was mil
and about.
The police at the beach say that they saw thi*
machine i oming at a great rate uf speed, and
Inspector Pennman took out hi_ watch to tlma*
lt. and when it had not passed the beach aftet
walting a minute and a half he caara ta th.
conclusion that there had b**ti an aocidenl and,
rontinued on seventh pase.

Oyster Bay, Aug. 1__? Baron Rosen. the jtiu.o
Russian peaee plenipotentiary. held a confer
enc* with President Roosevelt this afternooi
wliie'ii Iasted almost an hmir and tlm*e qaaartts*
I No ofli'ial annoiiiD-eineiit was Made to ___Hea_
j either the purpose of tbe meeting or the resr.lt
attained. but it is uadefstaod that the Presideu
! urged Baroa Rosen to aeeeda to i*ertain of tb'
, Japauese demands whifh tbe Russians hav.
thus fat refused to crant.
It is believe. that ho tolH tha Ambassado
verv frankly that hc thought the Russians wouli
make a ytry grave mistake if they refused ti
pay the indemnity now asked by Japan. for thi
"pound of flesh" that would be exacted in thi
event of a failure of these negotiations wouli
weigh a great deal more than sixteen ounces.
The conference. which was originally intendei
. to last only half an hour. and which continuee
j until almost G o'clock. was evidently quite agree
able to Baron Rosen. in spite of the plain tail
which the President gave him.
In bis visit at Sagamore Hill Rnron Rosen'
mood underwent a complete change. When h
arrived at the J. West Roosevelt dock at ?___!
o'clock. before _a_*eting the President. he wa
in a very ill humor. and answered only in gruf
mouosyllables those questions put to him b;
the newspaper corresp4*ndents: but when b
departed after his consultati4*n wtth the Exeeu
. tive he was in jovial spirits.
The Sylph, with Baron Rosen and his secr.
tary. Prince Kudacheff. aboard, steametl int
i the harlior at 4:10 o'clock. Th.- yachts swif
' launcb was dropped on the port side of tb
l boat and wbirled around to the starboard staii
way in the space of a minute. Lieutenan
Frank Evans. the Sylph's commander; Baro
' Rosen and Prince Kudacheff quiekly clinibe
down the stairs aad seated themselves in th
launeh. Lieutenant Evans gave tbe word. an
the little boat shot across tbe three hundre
yards of water to the dock. Lieutenant Evan
jumped out and assisted his passengers to alighi
and then escorted them to tbe top of the hil
B j where the Presldent's yellow wheeled wago
i j was awaiting tbem.
- , "I have nothing to say; nothing: nothinir:" *_
clainied Baron Rosen before getting into th
wagon. 'Drive on."
The last two words were dlrected to th
?
f . oachraan. who obeyed the onler witb a touc
i of his whip whicb seut tbe teai-j at a trot in Th
f direction of Sagamore Hill.
After seeing Baron Rosen and Prince Kuda
' cheff safely in the President's wagon Lieuter
[ ant Evans returned to the Sylph and waite
tmtil his passengers were ready again to eni
s bark. Sliortly before t? o'clock the lannc
made the trip to the Roosevelt )loek once raort
nnd at 646 o'clock started back with the et
voy and his secretary on board.
"I do not eaiv to talk about peace.'' sai
. ' Baron Rosen just before he left dry land t
start on the return trip to Portsmouth. 'Ther
; is nothing that I can say. I had :i very pleasan
visit with the President."
r | Ambassador Rosen talked freely upon othe
' subjects. Commentlng upon the Czar's man
festo establishing a Douma. he said: "It is sur
io he most l>eneflcent for the Russian people."
Raron Rosen spose of the beautiful weathe
and praised the lovellness of the President'
home surrmindings.

fort to esrahlish peace. but it ls President Rooee
velt. whose direct and forceful diplomacy
brought the peace conference into existence,
wbo is expected to exert the most potent i__h_>
ence for its success
The suggestion has been made. and somewhat
cxtensively discussed, that the President may
have received some intimation from the Cza?
or the Mikado. or both. that his good offlcea al
this critical stage of the negotiations would
prove grateful, and in this connection it is ra
marked that either side could vield more grace
fully to the disinterested persua-icn o. J
President than to the semi-belligerent demanda
of one opponent.
That both uations have already clearly demotv
strated their courage in The field of diplomscj.
and their willingness once more to contest theit
differenres on the lield of battle cannot be gain
said. and were either now to make even liberai
concessions under the purely friendly and ho
tnanitarian nifluen.'p of the President the worW
would unquestionably sep in such concessioni
only generosity. and not any spirit uf eow
ardice or any failure on the part of the belliger

Three hours after Baron Rosen left Portsmoutt
for Oyster Bay M. Witte departed for Magnolia
where he and several members of his suite wer*

"If all Russians are like that. Tm for them."'
M Witte returned from Magnolia al - ?
o'ciock this evening. and found on his arriva
a dispateh from Baron Rosen saying that h<
had started for Portsmouth.
The strain of the last few days at Portsmautl
has been great and it is beglnning to tell ot
all concerned. M. Witte was far from well las
night, and he looked worn thls morning. Baroi
Rosen sbowed the effects of the strain, am
Minister Takahira appeared weary and ___r8

Even the newspaper correspondent- are show
