Russia Restores Manchurian Tele graph Lines — Japanese Friction. Peking. Oct. 7. — A new telegraph convention between Russia and China was Bigned here to day. Tn'l'-r it China re. overs all her previous telegraph rights In Russian Manchuria and two thousand miles of lines and connections are; formally turner! bnr-k to her. Russia surrenders the privileges whi-h she has exercised since tlm Boxer outbreak and In the future will pay tele graph royalties to China. This is different from the Japanese procedure in Manchuria. Japan Increased her claims for telegraph and telephone privileges and extended both methods of communication In defiance of the sovereignty of China, entangling this matter with tho entiie political question In Manchuria. The Corea-Manchurla boundary dispute be tween China ar.d Japan is at a deadlock. Three battalions of Chinese troops who received orders to occupy Chen-Tao wore stopped by Japan's protest to China and the prenence on the bord«r of a detachment of Japanese, troops under command of a lieutenant colonel. China relies for Justification of her claim to Chen-Tao on an acknowledgment of the Emperor of Corea about seventeen yean ago that hf-r sov ereignty extended there, while Japan Miles upon the predominant of Corean Interests and actual possession of the town. China Is poshing the construction of the tele grnph line from Ninguta to Hun-Chun. COLUMBIA ATHLETES IN TROUBLE. So Many Men Have Conditions That Teams May Be Disbanded. Unless the rule prohibiting Columbia stu dents who have entrance conditions from com peting in athletics Is revoked some of tho or ganizations will probably be compelled to dis band for the simple reason that there, will not he enough men eligible to form the various teams. Tho rule, which went into effect on September 1, states In substance that all stu dents having entrance conditions will be de barred from all athletic contests. This means that •!? pe r cent of the men In the^ college division and 73 per cent of the science men will be Ineilsihle to compete on tho various teams. By enforcing the rule the 'var sity teams will suffer considerably, but the freshman teams will practically have to be disbanded. This peculiar situation has led the board of student reprcsentati vt-s at Columbia to formulate a. petition to the faculty asking that tho rule be not enforced until September 1, I!WS. by which time li is thought thai the men will have removed their conditions and that the next freshman class will have had a warn ing that unless they enter Columbia without conditions they will be unable to join an athletic team. The managers of tho teams are drawing up a petition also, which they will present to the faculty. This petition is practically the same as the one gent In by the board of represent ative?.

Mr. McDonald, the man who built the subway, and had a falling out with August Belmont "be— : fore the dirt was off his shovel." contributed} ; an inside view of the "high finance" transae- 1 i tions of the transit system In this city as lm-, ! portant and Interesting as anything the Publ!<*' Service Commission has brought out. He was to make possible the physical end of : ■ a vigorous competition to the man who had cast) him aside when through with his services. H» was even to bring into the reach of his new. employers the travelling public of a big neigh- j ! boring state in such fashion that Belmont. his enemy, could touch little el it. But he did not: know that he was merely a pawn In a much,, larger game. That he discovered first when ho learned that a merger had been effected between the Belmont and Ryan concerns. But Mr. McDonald had his agreements. Where-: fore he received J250.*>00 from the Metropolitan/ Securities Company to prevent his suing for breach of the contracts he held. That these pay ments were entered on the books of the com pany as ail asset did not trouble him any. "They must have thought I was an asset." ho chuckled. But he fared better than that. He has a five year stgreement by which the Interborough-Met ropolltan Company — the merger which knocked out his prospects of building new subways — is to pay him $50,000 a year. He has done no work; yet to earn his money since the agreement. "Of course, I should prefer t<> work," he .«• »>•*. Mr. McDonald began yesterday with an ac count of his going over to the Ryan, group. "I felt that there was a misunderstanding between Mr. Belmor.t and myself in relation to the carrying on of the work." he said, "as well as some financial misunderstanding, covering both cases; and I went to the Metropolitan Se curities Company because they thought of build ing or said they were going to^ build, a new sys tem of rapid transit, underground.** Ha had this assurance from Mr. Ryan. Mr. Vreeland. Mr. Berwln.l and Mr. Widener. Later, though. Mr. Ryan told him the Metropolitan Securities Com ; pany had not money enough to build subways. and that a syndicate outside of the company, though made up of men interested in th« com pany, would finance the undertaking. So. on March IS. 1905. John B. McDonald. "party of the first part." and Thomas P. Ryan. Norman B. Ream. Anthony X. Brady, P. a". B. Widener and Edward J. Btrwind. "parties of the second part." made an agreement by which the contractor should bid for future subway lines and build them, if the terms and conditions of the bid were approved by the syndicate. Th» syndicate or an operating company was to fur nish all the funds necessary. THE FIXAXCrXa ARRAXGEMEXT.

Fowler and John D. Crlmmins re ported, after consultation with Mr McDonald, that probably soon several new subways would be built, the plan being to construct three lines from the Battery to- The Bronx, and Mr. Me-. Donald was the most likely man to build them. It was extremely desirable that the owners at the surface lines "have a voice" in the construct tion of these subways, "both for .the purpose of. protecting the business dona by the surface line*
