The Vanrlerbilts. according to Ramsey, have agreed to push the Little Kana wha through to the sea, giving Ptttsburg another outlet. This was made a condition of the deal. The purchasers represent the Pittsburg and Lake Erie Railroad. The Pennsylvania and the Baltimore and Ohio railroads also are said to bo interested in the property. -Without doubt a line will be built," said Mr. Ramsey, "which will give nttsburg what it has been in great need of since the early Wa a railroad to the South. There is no way to reach this great fie-id at present except by way of Huntingdon or Harper's Ferry. The devel opment of the great coal fields of West Vir ginia will mean a great deal to Pittsburg. "I have been assured that the purchasers of the syndicate property will build th© projected line through Greene County. This line will connect at the State line with the Buokhannon and. Northern, now In course of construction, which Is part of the property we have dis posed of. The Buckhannon and Northern runs from Buckhannon to Belinsrton. The West Vir ginia Central and the Baltimore and Ohio run through Belington. and the Buckhannon and Northern can connect with those routes. But the route "which the purchasers of the property will follow in their extension to tidewater prob ably will be by way of the Coal and Coke Rail road, owned by Senator Davis, and the Chesa peake and Ohio. -» "Tiie Coal and Coke Railroad was formerly the Glendermon and Sutton. Senator Davis bought It two years ago. Its southern termi nus is Charleston, W. Va. The owners of the line are now building it northward, however, to Belington. where a connection will be formed with the Buckhannon and Northern. At Charleston the Coal and Coke Railroad connects with the Chesapeake and Ohio and a through touts thus will be formed from Pitisburg to the Atlaatlo seaboard, at Newport News and Norfolk." grRTTTK DOES NOT DELAY MAILS. ■ Sew Drivers Do Satisfactory Work— Settlement in Prospect. £, H.

Max Marx Alleges That Interbor ough Broke Contract. Mix Mnrx. through his attorneys. Alexander & Ash. filed a complaint In the County Clerk's offlr* yesterday against the Interborouffh Rapid Transit Company and the city Real Estate Company, to compel the specific performance of n contract to sell to him two blocks of land between 144th-5t . 146th-st. and 7th and Bth ayes., for th- sum of $1,700,000, at which price Marx alleges he agreed to purchase them. Mr. Marx's story was told in Friday's Tribune. The complaint sets forth that the property is in the name of the C*ty Real Estate Company, which is merely holding it for the Interborouffh company. Marx allesres that September 15 he purchased the two blocks for the sum of $1. 700,000, on a written contract. He was to pay down (50.060 in cash, $450,000 on th- delivery of the deed, within six months from Ihe execu tion of the contract, and $1,800,000 by the de livery of bonds and mortgages to tho Inter borough company. At th« time of making th^ contract the in terborough company, Marx alleges, agreed to execute a more formal contract In writing Sep tember 14. but before it could be prepared by the attorneys for the Interborough company that corporation wrongfully abandoned its agroenv-m and refused to make the contract. For this rea son. Marx says he «as prevented from paying over the $50,000 in cash, and from executing the more formal contract. He therefore asks judgment for the specific performance of the contract by the defendants, a »d the delivery to him of conveyances of the property for the sum of $1,700,000. WITZHOFF ROBS MASOXS.

When the thief broke away the alleged guardian of the law did not run aft^r him, but allowed Captain Rodgers to chase him. and th^n followed slowly. They went together to the <->ak-st. station. There. Captain Rodgers says, a sergeant, who was Pitting with his feet ->n the desk and a cigar In his mouth, b^gan to bully him for mak ing the arrest. He insulted him by sneerlngly saying that the coat was not worth the trouble. Captain ItodgeTß declares that there was not the slightest semblance of discipline in t h>- sta tion, that the sergeant w*as giving order? In a profane manner to the man at the telephone, and Th.nt a man stuck his head out of tht- captain's room nnd. addressing a crowd <>f policemen lounging around the room, said: "What are you fellers hangin" around h^re for?

There were black chil dren, as we!! as white one?. Most of the delegates were ragged, and many were dirty, but all were on their honor to appear well before the delegates from the other parts of the city. Many visitors crowded Into the gallery, or lined up in the back of the room with the workers. When Superintendent Ely opened the services with songs which most of the children first heard last June they responded heartily. Their voices might not have been exactly In tune, but they made up for th« lack of artistic finish by energy and enthusiasm. They sang "At the Cross. 1 "Won derful Words of Life," "A Shelter In th« Time of Storm." and repeated the Lords Prayer after the Rev.

"WILL PROMOTE COREAN TRADE. It is one of the remarkable features of Japanese development that, even white the recent war was in progress, the commercial promotion of Corea by Japan not only never waned, bur It even in creased The year 1904 was one of the best in Corel's history The war helped rather than hin dered trade, the commercial highways being held open. Cereals yielded large crops and sold high, both Japan and Russia buying. "Labor was abun dantly supplied with work at Rood wages. Much of this had to do with the movement of troops. This brought in millions of dollars of unexpected and unusual money. It is interesting to note that the Coreans never had so much money to spend and that they spent it freely: hence any improve ment in Corea or In the East is bound to be fol lowed by advantages to foreign trade. One disad vantage, due doubtless to the war and partly to the increased wag*s. whs trie increased cost of living. This advanced 50 per cent and in some cases fully 100 per cent. Railroads were built In many parts at about $50,000 a mile, fully $8,000,000 expended thereon. The gross value of the foreign Trade was a little more than 126,617,48?, of which $13,701,296 was for imports from abroad. Th" exports reached $3,466. 752.

Nat era 1 hindrances to trad? are being overcome by scientific method? worthy of the West or by ex pedients worthy of the East. For example, the shallowness of the river at Chemulpo long hin d<-r<=d the arrival of liree vessels. This is to b* obviated by running rails over bridges to two isl ands near deep water. The work is being done by the Japanese. Trains are to run from the main land alongside of steamers docked on the deep water side of the islands. Rocks have been blast ed, piers, docks. wharves, etc . built at great cost, but it is believed that the increase of business ex pected will more than make up for any probable ex penditures. The latest population figure? give Corea 6,f>00.Q00 people, including Ham Keung, a province in the north, under Russia before the war. Seoul, the cap ital, has 200,000, and is constantly Increasing. There are already ,v\flon Japanese in the kingdom. SCHAMUS SENT TO ASYLUM.
