ALARM IN CAPITAL
CABINET MEETING HELD.
Rumor of Dictatorship Revived?
Fear of Witte's Faiiure.
St. Petersburg. Nov. 20.?The successful mu?
tiny of the saJlors at Febastopol, accompanied
by the first open revolt of an entlre regiment of
troops. has created the greatest alarm ln gov?
ernment circles. and no attempt ls made to dis
guise the serioueness of this latest crisis.
The army is the last prop of the government.
Mutiny is contagious, and the epidetnio of re?
volt -which bas attacked in turn practically all
the unlts of the navy from Vladivostok to Cron?
stadt, it is now feared. ls destined similarly to
spread through the army.
Ugly rurnors have been repeatedly circulated
of sedition among the soldiers ln Manchuria,
and lt was specifically regarded a week ago
that General Linevitch had to put down a mu?
tiny with considerabie bloodshed. and that sub
sequently he executed forty-two officers. No
confirmation of this report was obtainable, but
whether it be true or not the morale of the
troops on garrison duty in Russia has certainly
everywhere been shaken by the revolutionary
propaganda, and the fldelity of individual unlts,
even of the Guard reglments. is questlond.
In the disorders following the promulgatlon
of the imperial manifesto some of the prevlncial
governors refralned from testing the loyalty
of the troops, preferring to rely on the Cossacks,
who showed no signs of wavering.
Count Witte called an extraordinary session
of the Cabinet this afternoon. and another ses?
sion was held to-night to consider the situation.
Grand Duke Nicholas Nicholaieviteh. president
of the Couneil of Xational Defence and com?
mander of the Imperial Guard, was present, and
this fact caused a revlval of the rumor that the
grand duke might immediately be appointed
dlctator. But it can be taken for granted that
this step has not been decided on, as it is plain
that a dictatorship at present would be sure to
preclpitate an armed revolution.
Nevertheless. Count Witte's government, lf it
continues its present poiicy, ln the opinion of
many students of the situation, will be unable
to enpe with the increaslng problems by which
it is constantly confronted. The revolutionary
tide subsides only to mount hlgher, and the ex
treme elements. convinced that the government
must fall. aro raising their demands.
Th<* "Slovo" to-day pointed out the Incon
sistency of the demand of the revolutionaries
for the abolition of the death penalty, saying:
They base their demand on humanitarian
grounds. yet thev closed the drug stores, which
furnish niedicines to the sick, and stopped the
railroads. which were carrying relief to mill?
lons suffering from famine.
The "Russ" hails the mutiny at Sebastopol as
the beglnnlng of the end and calls upon the
zemstvo congress to quit talking and to come
to St. Petersburg in the name of the country
and ask Count Witte what he purposes to do
to tranquillize the people. urging it, if the repiy
be unsatisfactory. to take the only step which
remains, and form a provisional government.
M. Souvorin, Editor of the "Novoe Vremya,"
likens the situation to a hydra-headed monster
which, as soon as one of its heads ls cut off.
grows two in its place, adding "unfortunately
there is no Hercules En sight."
The only immedlate measure the government
is known to have decided upon is the enactment
of a drastic law to punish persons guilty of in
citing strlkes, but this will only be likely to
inflame the Soeialists. The physical impossl
bilitv of holding elections in many provinces
owing to the prevalerce of agrariart disorders
and the generally dlsturbed conditlons will make
necpssary me postponement of the meeting of
the douma. This is sure to be mlsinterpreted.
constitutes another danger and adds weight
to the arguments of those who are urging on
Count Witte that the only chance of restoring
comparative tranquillity is "to induce the Em?
peror to pign a constitution guaranteeing the
liberlies promised in the manifesto. They declare
that the choice lies between that and a dic
tatorshlo.
The Couneil of Minister.-- has approved a pro
posal made by the Ministry of Ways and Com
munications for the grant of $7,50(1.000 to ame
liorate the condition of railroad servants.
The government to-night issued a communica
tion explaining the meanlng of the Emperor's
manifesto of November 16 concerning the peas?
ants which will be circulated extensively in the
country districts in the hope of quieting the
agrarian agitation. In it the peasants are told
how they can purchase land through the Peas?
ants' Bank, and are informed that the mani?
festo whlch remlts payments of taxes amount?
ing to $22,500,000 in 1906 and $45,000,000 an
nually thereafter Is only the flrst step in the
great scheme of reform whlch will be submitted
tp the National Assembly, in which their repre
sentatives will take part.

LYNCH NEGRO BY CHURCH.
He Confessed Assault?Body Shot
to Pieces.
IBy TViefcraph to The Trlbun*..
New-Orleans, Nov. 20.?Within fifty miles of
New-Orleans. in Tangipahoa Parish. a mob of
infurinted citizens hung Monroe "Williams, a
negro, to a trea in front of the negro church
door, while services were going on, at 9 o'clock
to-night. The negro confessed an assault on Mrs.
Rhoda George, an aged white woman, a week
ago.
Everything possible was done to make the affair
a spectacular warning to the other negroes m
the parish. As soon as Williams was swung up
the body was literally shot to pieces. The other
negroes were afraid to leave the church. The
negro was taken away frorn a deputy sheriff,
who had captured hlm as he was hanging around
the scene of hls crime. In Williams' confession
another negro is implicated, and he will be
lynched as soon as caught.

vTilliam Ford. four years old, son of Michael
Ford, an elevator man, of No. 66 State-st., Brook?

taken yesterday noon. Two hours later his fatber
brought him back In his arms. The boy was un
conFcious.
Mrs. Ford ran to the Long Island College Hos?
pital, and an ambulance surgeon went to the State
st. house. He found the boy in an alcoholic stupor
and hurried him to the hospital, where for a time
lt was feared tha lad would not recover.
The father, who had, the police thought, been
drlnklng, would not say where he had been with
the boy, but admitted tbat he had given him two
or three glasees of eherry. He said he had no
idea that the wlne was strong enough to hurt any?
body. The police could not get Ford to say where
he had got the wlne, and they decided to lock hlm
up on a charge of lntoxicatlon. He was taken to
the Amlty-st. station, and will be arralgned in the
Butler-st. court this morning.
The motber said last night that Ford was the
kindest of fathers. and she was sure he had not

Mcdical Board Find* "Such Evi?
dence as JFas Desired."
Annapolls. Md.. Nov. 26.?The body of Midshipman
Branch was exhumed to-day and an auotpsy was
held by a board of naval medica! offlcers. The
condltion of the body was found to be such that
those who made the autopsy will be ahle to answer
questions that have arisen in the Meriwether trial
as to the conditlon of Midshipman Branch's heart
and other organs hefore the flght.
The board performing the autopsy waa composed
of Surgeon J. C. Byines, the ranklng medlcal of?
flcer attached to the naval academy, and Passed
Assistant Surgeons W. R. Webb and R. _. Hoyt,
also of the naval academy medlcal staff.
Those taking part ln the autopsy were bound to
secrecy until their evidence Is given before the
court martial. Surgeon J. C. Byrnee, ranklng offl?
cer of the autopsy board, however, made the state?
ment that "the body was In condltion to furnish
such evidence as was desired."
The autopsy was conducted in a tent erected ln
the naval cemeterv near the grave of young
Branch, but some of tho organs were taken to the
naval hospital for more minute examination. Tne
work of the medlcal men lasted untll late this
afternoon, after whlch the body was again buried.
That the examination was not mada at the time
of Branch's death was due to the objections of his
parents. Meriwether's counsei. however, have lndl?
cated that one of their lines of d?ence will rest
upon a possible doubt as to Branch's death havlng
resulted from lnjuries received in the flght with
Meriwether.
In the course of the trial mention has been made
of a midshipman who passed the physical examina?
tion, but two weeks after being admitted to the
naval academy died. of embolism caused by vege
tatlon formed ln the heart or the blood vessels near
lt and carried thence to the braln. It haa also
been suggested that svmptoms similar to those
exhibited ln the case of Branch might be present
ln a case of braln trouble Induced by dlseased kid
reys. To-day's autopsy was held for the purpose
of obtainlng more deflnite medlcal testimony.
FEAR AMERICAN ATTACK.
Native Citizens of lsle of Pines
Greatly Alarmed.
Havana, Nov. 26, 12:30 a. m.?The newspaper
"Mundos" at midnight received a dispatch from
Batabano. whlch says that the Cuban gunboat
Arana has arrived there from the lsle of Pines.
Her captain reports that the native citlzens of
Neuva Gerona, lsle of Pines. are greatly alarmed
because of a fear that the Americans will attack
the town on Sunday and take forclble possession
of the government. offlces.
The Assoelated Press has been informed in the
most posltlve terms that whatever develops in
the lsle of Pines, Cuba, ln no circumstances, will
ask the United States to Intervene, even to the
extent of sending a gunboat. This statement
was made by Generai Freyre Andrade, Sec?
retary of the Interior, after a conference with
President Palma. at which General Rodriguez,
commander of the Rural Guard. was present.
Asked whether the members of the government
all adhored to this view, General Andrade re?
plled:
Absolutely. Why. we would not think of such
a thing as to ask the assistance of the Wash?
ington government. The President was very
angry because he undtrstood that Mr. Squlres
hinted that it might perhaps be wise in the
event of trouble to ask Washlngton to send a
gunboat as a warnlng to the Americans to keep
order. The Cuban government wili maintaln
order in its territory and will ask no assistance
from anybody. The Americans here are con?
sidered to be foreigners, with the same status
as that of any other foreigners. If they try to
assume official functions we will put them in
jail, and we believe that we can do lt and at the
same time uphold the honor of our sovereign
government.
There is no news to-day from the lsle of Pines.
The mail schooner which saiis from Nueva
Gerona for Batabano early on Saturday evenings
had not been sighted when this evening's train
for Havana left Batabano. A special messenger of
the government left Batabano to-day for the
lsle of Pines in the little gunboat Arana. wlth
lnstruoiions to return and report as soon - as
possible.
All that' is known here is that a meeting of
Americans on the island was held yesterday to
confirm what had previously been done, this
meeting being considered necessary owing to in
sufflcient notice having been given of the inten
tlons of the Americans to nominate territorial
officers.
A report seems to have been spread among the
Cubans at Nueva Gerona that this meeting will
be proliflc of trouble, whlch will eulmlnate to
morrow when the Americans assume the offlces
in deflance of Cuban authority. This report,
however, lacks confirmation.
There are only twenty-flve Rural Guards and
a dozen policemen in the lsle of Pines, but Sec
retarv Freyre Andrade says that the Cubans in
the Island will give this force every assistance
in the event of trouble. The Americans on the
island have few arms.
COMMUNICATE ABOUT ISLE OF PiNES.
Havana. Nov. 26.?It is understood that the Cuban
gnvernmpnl is communicating with the United
States government as to which ls to deal with the
Americans ln the lsle of Pines if they carry out
their alleged threat to assume territorial offlces.
STORE COAL FOR STRIKE.
Anthracite Operators Prepare to Re
sist Miners' Demands.
fBy TPlegraph to Tbe Tribune]
Pittsburg, Nov. 26.?A secret meeting was
held In Philadelphia a few days ago by the an?
thracite operators. They decided to fight the
demands which will undoubtedly be made by
the United Mine Workers of America. This in?
cludes recognttion of the union, an eight hour
work day and a mlnlmum wage rate for day
labor. The coal operators decided to call ln
their sales agents untll the trouble is settled,
and no more coal ls to be offered for sale. They
also decided that if their mlnes are to be closed
down the plants of the bituminous operators
must also close at the same time. It has not
been lndlcated how this ls to be accomplished.
A Plttsburg operator's representative sald he
had never seen such a large tonnage of coal
stored at this time of the year. Every storage
bin from Sunbury east up to Wilkes-Barre and
Scranton are filled to overfiowing. One rail?
road at a great expense had erected a great
storage plant and large dealers and rallroads
have purchased. leased or rented. storage blns
outside of Philadelphia. The Pittsburg man
said that the anthracite operators will clean
up at least $20,000,000 on stored coal if the
strike is to continue for any length of time.
OBJECT TO WAGE SCALE.
Navy Yard Unions Say New Sched
ule Trcats Them Unfairly.
The delegates of unions represented in the navy
yard complained to the Central Federated Union
yesterday that the board of wages. wh'ch is now
in session. was flxlng upon wages to prevail during
the coming year which were less than the wages
paid to competent men by thf best New-York
flrms. The board of wages meets every year to
decide on the wafes to be paid. The firms in the
trades represented in the navy yard, throughout
Xew-York and vicinity. are asked for llsts of the
wages to be paid. Then a general average is
struck. and the result is the wages to bo paid
durin* the coming year.
Tho delegate of the coppersimths union said that
the board of wages had not gone to the employers
who were paving the best wages. The average
m?. paid ln New-York. he said. were higher than
the wages fixed by this board. A general discussion
followed. during whlch delegates of the other
trades made the same complaint.
A statement by one of the delegates brought out
the remark from Delegate Wilson of tho Interna?

Contlnnfd from flrst pnre
leges, private schoois and other institutions in the
United States Interested in athletlcs. This actlon
was taften after many meetings of the university
committee on athletlcs of the University of Penn
sylvanlc. at whlch the Preeldent's ldeas on the
subjects were dlscussed. The committee formu
lated rules which it thought would meet the situa?
tion. and decided to send them to tha authorities
of rfll educational Institutions in the country for
consideration and adoptlon lf they met wlth ap?
proval.
The letter suggests that three rules be adopted,
slmtlar to those suggested by Professor Hollls. of
Harvard. In hls opinlon the backbone of college
regulation oi athletlcs rests in three rules. These
are.
First?A definition of professionaliem.
Second?A rule whlch should requlre all members
of athletic teams to be genulne students of the col?
lege whlch they represent. and to be satisfactory
in their studies. ,__.
Third?A rule to prevent the procurement of gooq
players from other colleges by social or money ln
ducements.
The committee says of these rules:
It belleves that they will provide for all the exl
gencles whlch have hitherto arlsen. or that may
arlse. and. if interpreted and accepted in the broad
spirit whlch was appropriately described by Pres?
ident Roosevelt as a "gentlemen's agreement.
The rules proposed by the University of Pennsyl?
vania in accordance with President Roosevelt's
suggestion provide against professionallsm or the
plaving of anv except a bona fid* student, and pro?
vide for strlngent penalties. These rules are to ne
regarded as representing a required mlnimum.
The board of coaches of the University pt Fenn
sylvania in a communlcation to the committee ois
cusses the abuses to which football has been sub
jected. and ventures the opinion that the danger
o** inlurv In mass play ls more apparent than reai.
Xine-tenths of all serious lnjurles. the board says.
occur In so-called open play. The board suggests
the following changes ln the playing rules: f
For "unnecessary roughness." "piling up. tne
use of the open hand, of elbows. etc. a penalty cr
twentv-live vards be Inflicted; for the offence of
siugging with the fist. of "kneelng.- or of other
equaily nnsportsmanllke action. that the player
not only be disqua'.ified by removal fr*-rn the game.
but that for the remainder of the half ln which
the offence occurred hls team be obllged to con?
tinue the game without a substitute for him. and
that the player who shall for the; second time in
one season be penalized for brutallty, shall be ln
eligible to represent any college or university ror
the remainder of the season.
MOORE'S CONDITION GOOD.
Autopsy Shows No Organic Defect
?N. Y. U. Paper Discusses Case.
foroner O'Gorman. of The Bronx. who investi?
gated the death of H. R. Moore. the Union College
student who received fatal injuries in a football
game wlth New-York University on Saturday, said
last night that the fatallty was a direct result of
the play ln whlch he was hurt. The young man,
he said, was in remarkable physical condition.
"He was an athlete, a perfect type of young
manhood," said the coroner. "There Was not the .
slightest organic weakness of the heart or of any ,
other organ."
Moore's body was removed from Fordham Hos?
pital to the undertaking establishment of Boyd
& 'Mulcahv. at WeWster-ave. and lfflth-st.. yester?
day morning, Coroner O'Gorman having issued a
permit. William G. Moore, the father of the dead
boy took the body to Ogdensburg last night.
Coroner O'Gorman announced that he would hold
an inquest next Frlday and that those who had
played in the game and some spectators would be
subpoenaed.
Dr Thomas H. Curtin. coroner's physician or
The Bronx. who performed the autopsy. said
Moore's physical con-JMon was wellnigh perfect
and that his death must be attributed entlrely to
the injuries received in the game and not to hls
weakened . physical condition. Professor William
K. Gillett, of New-Tork University. chairman of :
the faculty committee on athletlcs. at his home, in *
Pelham Manor, said:
I cannot express my regret for the tragedy in j
words. In view of the accident. my previous idea
of the game of football as a brutal one has been
strengthencd. and t shall use my endeayors to
have the game abollshed at the university unless
very material changes are made in the rules.
Frank II. ("ann. physical director of Xew-York
University, who has supervisory power over all the
athletics of the college, said yesterday:
I was at Fordham Hospital with Moore's father
till a late hour last night. and endeavored to ex?
press to him the horror and grlef felt by the
authorities of New-York Cniversity over his sons
fragic death. I will say that I think the game. as
Dlaved at present. has no place on a college fleld.
I do not believe it should be countenanced by an>
college authorities. The game ls a good manly,
rugged one. and it is most deplorable that it cannot
be played ln the good old sportsmanhke manner
when sport was loved as sport.
Dr David Wylie. whose 6on, Howard M. Wylie,
has played at end for tbe New-York eleven all the
season said that football would undoubtedly have
tn he reconstructed. as public sentiment would
overwhelmingly demand a radical change.
O?of thephvslcians who attended Moore. speak
ine of the published reports that Moore had a
wfak heart. said that if this had been the case
U would have been in his favor rather than against
I'm because the violence of the cerebral hemor
Se wou d have been mltigated by poor heart

IBy Telegraih ti The Tribune.]
Cambridge. Mass., Nov. *_6.-Charle3 W. Eliot,
president of Harvard University, stated to-nlght
that he would write to Chancellor MacCjacken of
New-York University and decline to issue a call
to the presidents of all the American unlverslties
and colleges to discuss the abolition or reformation
of football. President Eliot received a telegram
frorr Chancellor MacCracken this afternoon asking
him to take the initiative in this matter. ln view of
the fatal accident to Harold R. Moore on Ohio
Field vesterday afternoon.
"Though I received the message from Chancellor
MacCracken but this afternoon. I don't mind saying
that I shall write him and decline the invitatlon."
said President Eliot to-day. "Any Initiative that
might come from Harvard ln such a matter as this
would come from the corporation and board of
