Bsmogn President Coler*s lightning change 5*1?.. a roaring lion to the meekest of doves was -' great surprise of yesterday. Almost the first fc!r? he said when opening his dally conversa tion with reporters was that pending an appeal to the proper tribunals he would advise the peo jsiMo pay the 10-cent fare. He backed down as gracefully as possible, In IsßsJwny he did it he said: "Th*rf> has he^-n a misapprehension concerning =7att!tu<l» from the start. I have not been In f'-'-isg anybody to anything.

I want to say to the people of Brooklyn that the law will be enforced, that the people of the State of New York will demand respect for the law. and that rioting must cease to-day, and that all cars that were running upon Sunday last to Coney Island must be run to Coney Island. By virtue of the statute which directs the magistrate to, I will take the necessary action if the Police Department is unable to see to it that cars are run. and that passengers upon the cars are protected from their starting point to their destination. After Magistrate Hlgginbotham had set the hearing for this afternoon, one of the counsel for the prisoners said that he didn't want any favors shown to his clients, but that they should be treated like any other prisoners. The magis trate, who had intended to parole the officials, said he would comply with the lawyer's request by holding them In $1,000 ball each. ORDINANCES DUG UP. A question arose last night over the discovery of an old ordinance by which the Acting Mayor, it was thought, could stop the violence on the i cars and end the trouble. It was pointed out that the ordinance gave the Mayor the power ( to have a man in charge of a car removed for certain misconduct. It reads: The Mayor shall have power, upon any com plaint made to him, to require any car conductor or driver to appear before him, upon notice of at least twenty-four hours, and. if, upon in vestigation and examination of witnesses, he shall adjudge that said conductor or driver has been guilty of insolence, extortion, reckless or improper conduct, he shall notify such deter mination to the president of the company In whose employment such conductor or driver may be. and thereafter such conductor or driver shall not act as such without the permission of the Mayor. Another section requires that drivers of cars shall have licenses which the Mayor may revoke any time he may deem it expedient. These ordinances were printed last Friday In "The City Record." it being a matter of form to print them every year. Some are old and have been carried on the lists merely through failure of the Board of Aldermen to have them for mally rescinded. They all stand as law, how ever, and It was said by some that under the sections quoted the Acting Mayor could have brought Brooklyn Rapid Transit motormen and conductors before him, and examined them. If found guilty of disorder he could have dis missed them by revoking their licenses. "B. R. T. REFUNDING 55." Several Jokers on the curb market began to bid up "Brooklyn Rapid Transit refunding f»s" yesterday. A. J. Smith, a curb broker, was the chief Joker. H«» got into the market, and with vigor started in to bid up "Brooklyn Rapid Transit refunding 55." Several of his friends, who had been "tipped off" by him. Immediately sold him these mythical securities. Smith bid them In at 1. Within ten minutes he had bought In about 100.000 of these alleged securi ties. Many other brokers, not knowing th« game. grot in. and the bidding for the new "securities" became spirited. In a short time "Brooklyn Rapid Tranult refunding ss" were run up to 2%. Smith bl£ in in all about 500.000 of the securi ties, when a representative of a curb firm offered to take the entire issue or any part of it at 2. This announcement broke the market aa far as that security was concerned. Mr. Smith then announced that the "Brooklyn Rapid Transit refunding ss" were the rebate tickets which the company is about to Issue. QT'TET ALONG THE CULVER. There was practically no disturbance along th* Culver line yesterday. In the afternoon several Central Office men appeared and arrested Su perintendent Maybury for assault. The warrant was sworn out by Edward Trainor. of No. 12 Reid avenue, who alleges that he was assaulted on Monday. The business men of Coney Island have been hard hit by the fight. The total loss at the Island since last Sunday Is estimated to be more than 5200.000. The attendance was decidedly less than on the rainy days at the beginning of the season. Surf avenue, genrr.iily crowded from curb to curb, has looked as deserted aa a Boston street after nightfall. Among: the heaviest losers is Bostock. the ani mal man. He says that his receipts have fallen off from 50 to fiO per cent because of the trouble, ■while Himllrtr reports are made by all the other amusement peoplo. Everybody living In th« Gravesend district has been mur-h discommoded by the suspension of fhe. trolley system. These cars drain the Kast New York district *hot touched by the elevated lines, and the suspension of the service has made It difficult for many to go to and from work. Another complaint Is made hy the builders along the Culver line. Their lime barrels, bun dles of laths and all easily carried material have been disappearing. Investigation snowed that the police had been halting the elevated trains In tne early hours of the morning and loading up the front platforms with everything they could get to build bonfires at King's Highway and Kensington. Twelve persons in a car of a Culver line ele vated train refused to pay a second fare about 9 o'clock, and the car was detached and switched onto a siding at Gravesend. About two hundred and fifty patrolmen stood around the car to keep It from being smashed, but the marooned pas sengers started a concert with a mandolin and a violin. The greater part of the night was whiled away in that manner. Neither Sheriff Flaherty nor Magistrate Hlg ginbotham went down to the scene of trouble. Several under sheriffs were there with a sheaf of warrants for Brooklyn Rapid Transit officials. but found no one on whom they could be served. About twenty persons were ejected at various times from the cars of the Brighton Beach line at Newkirk avenue, but there was not much dis order attendant on the ejections.

Aug. 10.— Dispatches received here to-day from Ponza, tho capital of the Prov ince of Penza, which is at the junction of the Sura and Volga rivers, report the arrest of an other members of the late parliament, M.

Trouble Between Greeks and Bul garians Danger to Peace. Sofia. Bulgaria. Aug. 16.— The anti-Greek movement In Rumania and Bulgaria is daily assuming greater proportions and threatens to become a serious danger to peace. The Bul garian government, it appears, will be fo?2ed to take exceptional measures to terminate the disturbances, which are due to the antl-Givek feeling with which the entire population of the principality is imbued. The cause of the anti-Greek feeling is the historical competition of Greece and Bulgaria for domination in the Balkans, which was re cently stimulated by tho rivalry in Macedonia, which. It is alleged, lias 1>..-n artificially «n couraged by \)\*> Turkish authorities, and par ticularlj by the atrocities of the Greek bands. It Is asserted that the Patriarchal Church at Constantinople lias acted as an accomplice of thesi bands, with the object of forcing the peaceful population of Bulgaria to Join the Pa t iarchal Church, and that the propaganda has been carried out in Bulgaria by the organs of ;h»- Patriarchal Church. The Patriarch of Constantinople nomina.ed the <;!■•••■!•: Bishop of Varna In a manner which was regarded by Bulgarians as insulting nnd humiliating, and the Bulgarian authorities re fused to perml' the Bishop to occupy the See without the approval of the Bulgarian govern ment The Incident aroused intense public feel ing, and public meetings, at which the action of the Patriarch was denounced in inflamma tory speeches, were followed by attacks in the Greek Church, school and monastery. The attacks were the signal to the surround ing country, and scenes of disorder commenced in every district possessing Patriarchal religious establishments. The Bulgarians drove the cler gy from the churches and houses, and in many instances attacked the Greeks and pillaged pri vate property. Serious attacks were made at Philippopolis, in Bulgaria, and at Anchialos. or Ahiolu, a seaport of Eastern Rumelia, on the Black Sea. The trouble at Auchlalos arose from a meet ins called to protest against the action of the Greek bands In Macedonia. The Greeks armed themselves under the leadership of the Bishop and attacked the peasants coining in to attend the meeting. The peasans then applied the torch to several houses, and the flames, spread ing, destroyed most of the town. About five hundred houses were burned. During the fighting and the nre seven persons were kllUd and thirty were wounded, some of them mortally. The troops dispersed the com batants and a judicial Inquiry into the affair Is now In progress. The inhabitants of Anchi alos are without shelter and the utmost confu sion exists there. Many of them have ion« to the surrounding towns. Relief measures are being extended privately and by the government. It Is feared that there will be a renewal of the outbreak at Phillppopolla on Sunday next, for which date another anti-Greek meeting has been called. FLEE IN NIGHT CLOTHES.

Elected Commander in Chief at Minneapolis — Heat Continues. Minneapolis. Aug. I&— The Grand Army of the Re public at its annual meeting here to-day elected the following officers: Ohio" 11 "* 1 ' 11 *' !n Chlef ~~ R - B - Br °wn. Zanesvilie. Senior Vice-Commander- Will lam H. Armstrong. Indianapolis. £v . r ,-Commander-E., -Commander-E. B. Fenton. Detroit. Chaplain in Chief— Archbishop John Ireland. St. Surgeon General— W. H. Johnson. Lincoln. Neb. All other officers are staff appointments, and will be announced later by the new commander in chief. The strongest opponents of Mr. Brown for com mander In chief were C. G. Burton, of Missouri, and Captain P. H. Coney, of Kansas. Both of these ■withdrew when it was seen that the election of Mr. Brown was a certainty. Brown was then chosen by acclamation. Several candidates were nomi nated for senior and Junior vice-commanders, but at the last instant all withdrew in favor of Arm strong and Fenton. Archbishop Ireland had no rH-al for chaplain in chief. The new commander In chief of the Grand Army was born in 1843. and has always lived in Ohio. He enlisted in the lath Ohio Infantry at the age of six teen years, and served in the Fourteenth Army Corps of the Army of the Cumberland until he was mus tered out in ISSi. He then re-enlisted as a veteran soldier, and served as such until the end of the war. He was a private throughout the first three years of his service, and then became a non-com missioned officer. He has always been active in the work of the Grand Array. He is now Editor of "The Zanesville Courier." The business sessions were held in the Audi torium st 11th street and Nloollet avenue, about fifteen hundred delegates being in attendance. The most important Questions to be taken up during the meeting are the abolition of the canteen from the old soldiers' homes and the proposed erection of a monument to Henry Win. who was in command of Andersonvllle. by the womei of the South. On the Question of the canteen the delegates are appar ently about evenly divided, but there is consider able opposition to a monument to Wirz. The report of Commander in Chief Tanner cov ered all features of the work done by the Grand Army during the last year. No mention was made of the canteen question, but considerable space was given to Wirz. and the recommendation was made that the Grand Army enter a dignified and em phatic protest against the erection of the monu ment. The commander In chief bitterly arraigned those who., posing as the "most eminent men of the na tion." had proved false to their trust in various ways, but declared that among all such the name of no Civil War veteran could be found. He reiterated his views regarding a proper ob servance of Memorial Day. and said that as the re sult of his recommendations concerning the graves of Confederates buried on Northern soil he had re ceived a number of touching messages from moth ers of the South whose sons are buried in North ern soil. Commander in Chief Tanner dwelt at length on the subject of patriotic societies auxiliary 10 and in sympathy with the Grand Army of the .Republic. He said: The time is coming, if not already here, when we must begin to think about the property of the Grand Army of the Republic not belonging to posts. And it is a question whether it is not almost time to appoint a committee to carefully consider the whole subject, and the relations to be sustained in future between the Grand Army of the Republic and the Woman's Relief Corps, the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic, the Daughters of Veterans, the Sons of Veterans and other patriotio organizations. If. in the fulness of time, these various patriotic organizations should merge into one grand body, what an impulse would be given to the cause we have so much at heart, what results would accrue to our beloved country, and. as a minor, yet very Important, consideration, how much less It would cost to maintain one organization in the highest condition of efficiency, than it now costs to conduct the affairs of the several organizations, all largely devoted to the same object. The proposed monument to Captain Wirz, who was in charge of Andersonville Prison, was strongly condemned. He said Andersonville was the prop erty of the Woman's Relief Corps, and that no monument to Wirz ever would be permitted upon it. but there was no legal power to prevent any one so disposed from purchasing a plot of ground near Andersonvllle and erecting thereon any monu ment that might be desired. He declared, how ever, that the veterans of the Confederate Army were not to any appreciable degree interested in the movement. The whole project, be said, had its impetus and force among the women of the South. He deprecated the necessity for calling- public at tention to the matter. The successful efforts of himself and associates before the committees of Congress to secure needed pension legislation for Union veterans were de tailed at length. sir. Tanner's remarks on this sub ject being followed by a history of the effort made at the last session of Congress t.i forcibly retire from the public service ex-Union soldiers who had reached a certain age limit. The reports of Adjutant General Tweedale. Quar termuster General Battles, Judge Advocate General t'larlx and Inspector General Cummtnga covered the work of the last twelve months in their depart ments, that of the Adjutant General showing that although the Grant! Army had lost ■;>.;>>& members by death in the last year its membership had in creased by 3.368. According to the report of Quartermaster General Prank Battles, the amount of cash received from the retiring Quartermaster General was J9.SS3. The total receipts during the year have been HO.SM making the receipts for the year £»,472. The total oxpenditurrs have been $18,115. leaving a balance in the, treasury of $2,K7.
