Un POLICY OUTLINED
READY FOR EMERGENCY.
Secretary Mctcalf Says Warships
Will Be Kept Together.
[From The Tribune Bureau!
■Washington. Oct. 10. — "The American people
■send f 100,000.000 a year on their navy and they,
expert and art- entitled to have it maintained at
*!! times in a Ftate of preparedness which will
j-rovs ample for any emergency. That is all
There !s to the policy of the Navy Department,"
sr.!n the Secretary of th- Navy to-day when
asked for some of the features of the policy
now dominating th*> department and directing
th? affairs of the fleets.
"Battleships out of commission, cruisers in
the navy yards and torpedo boats tied up to
their docks will not serve the purpose. They
•a-ould be almost useless if called on suddenly to
protect the- country. Therefore, it is the policy
of the department to maintain not only the
vessels themselves in a state of the most per
fect fitness attainable. but to have them manned
with experienced men. and the man cannot gain
experience without actual tsea service.
'•It -. moreover, believed to be good policy
Is keep our fleets in borne water. Then the
sUbs are at hand when needed, and when re
pairs are required it Is not necessary to send
their to foreign shipyards, but the work can
be done here and by American mechanics. In
cidentally, this serves to keep the details of our
nava: • instruction to ourselves so far as pos
sible.
'There is one thing I take pleasure in saying.
and that is that I have enjoyed the most loyal
jnpport and co-operation in this department.
Everything has gone on with a smoothness
which Is most gratifying. Admiral Brownson
* a remarkably capable man. and so Is Admiral
Converse, v.:, i preceded him as chief of naviga
tion and 's now chairman of the General Board.
In fact, all of the bureau chiefs are most excel
lent and capable men. (These staff officers are
actuated by a single purpose— the promotion of
the best Interests of the navy— and we are,
therefore, all of one mind as to the end to be
achieved, and when men are a unit in that re
cpect It Is not difficult to arrive at harmony in
method."
"Mr. Secretary, there are manifest notable
energy and snap about the department since
you became Secretary. How do you account for
thatr*
"I am glad you think bo," replied Mr. Met
calf. "But it is only the natural result of har
monious work to a given end, with large proj
ects to be carried to a successful conclusion and
every one working to promote them. There are
snap and energy In the department In plenty;
the plans which are now maturing have long
been conceived, and we had been working on
them for some time before they became known
to the press and to the public.
"I am deeply gratified over the spirit there is
in this department and in the service generally.
Why, not only the officers but the enlisted men
as well have been begging to be allowed to go
on the Pacific cruise. They all realize that the
experience will prove invaluable and that the
cruise will afford each man an opportunity to
chow what Is in him and how well he can per
form the service intrusted to him.
"I believe for the future the policy of the de
partment will be to keep the navy together."
"Does that mean that the Atlantic and Pacific
fleets Brill maintain the combination they will
effect when they reach the Pacific Coast?"
"The fleet will return from the Pacific and
will r.ake its home in the Atlantic, but the
strength of the .'t 'antic fleet as permanent
«rgarized remains to be seen. We have a re
markably fine fleet on the Pacific now; by grad
ual accretion it has been brought up to a point
never before attained.
"Of course the navy is not for show but for
work. In time of peace it 1b a~ insurance
against war. In time of r.-ar it Is the great
guarantee of the safety of the nation ft >m in
vasion. The policy which will govern the de
partment and the disposal of the fleet while I
am Secretary will be that which eeems most
likfly to promote the preparedness of the navy
at all times."
NEED NOT PAY DUES.
Relief for Foreign Vessels Carrying
Coal to Pacific Fleet.
Washington. Oct. 10. — Foreign bottoms carry-
Ing coal for the battleships on the Pacific cruise
will not be compelled to pay the tonnage and
light dues assessed under regulations of the De
partment of Commerce and Labor. A decision
to this effect was rendered to-day by Attorney
General Bonaparte, the question having been re
ferred to him when the British tramp steamer
Femdene. carrying coal from Newport News to
■he Bremerton navy yard, on Puget Sound, pro
tested against the payment of these char.-
The owners of the Ferndene declared that they
had been promised immunity from tonnage and
light dues by the Navy Department. This con
tention was denied by Secretary Metcalf, but the
d'spute created wide discussion, and bidders for
•as contract* for supplying coal for the battle
ship fleet informed the department that they
would be compelled to raise their bids $1 a ton
If the du*s were assessed. Practically all the
coal will be carried in foreign bottoms.
At a conference of officials of the Navy and
Commerce and Labor departments it was seen
that the effect would be to take money out of
one government pocket to put it into another,
as the revenues from the tax go to the United
States Treasury. '
Thf-sr- facts were placed before the Attorney
Qsaeral, and he decided that the regulations a^
Breakfast Monotony
—tin 6a--e old chops, or baron and egg*, and biscuit, for breakfast— may be avoided.
Try
Fruit (preferably cooked).
Four teaspoonfuls of Grape-Nuts with cream or milk,
Eggs, one or two poached or soft-boiled.
Cup of Postum. Food Coffee with cream and sugar.
Toast, one or two slices nice and crisp.
This \rill give you an ideal combination of the three principal food elements— proteids,
c£rbfLydr«i:oß and fats— in the most 'easily digestibie form.
And it ■Haas a wide awake individual with energy and a clear head to make a stir in
lie world; it replaces that ddl, sluggish feeling which so often follows the too-much-meat
•and-biscuii breakfast.
The man who has work to do can't afford to be overloaded with the kind of food that
requires undue effort on the part of his digestive organs for a time and leaves him with a
"gone feeibg" jus* about the time of day when he needs bis best mental and physical
1 powers.
Grape-Nats food ■affords real strength of mind and body, with little effort (or waste
force) in getting it converted in the system into energy and staying-power— the power to
act and to endnre.

SUFFRAGE FOR HUNG A RY.
Great Labor Demonstration in Its
Favor — Petition Presented.
Budapest, Oct. There was a gr» I labor
demonstration here to-day In favor of universal
suffrage for Hungary. Upward of sixty thousand
trade unionists marched through the boulevards
to the Sta<itwaldoh<-n Park, where a meeting wits
held. The march, which lasted three hours,
passed off in an orderly manner.
Detachments of police wore -stationed in Parlia
ment Square In anticipation of trouble at the
opening of the houses, and they kept th« ap
proaches clear, Whtjn the President of the Lower
House. Horr Justh, entered the building a deputa
tion of workmen presented him with a petition
which set forth that the Houfo had displayed a
lack of understanding in the cast of the social
reforms needed by the working people, who, it
was added, were animated by patriotism and
were enthusiastically working for independence,
especially for the economic independence of Hun
gary.
President Justh, In reply, denied that the House
was solicitous of class interests, and sa'.il he was
convinced that the present Hungarian Ministry
would solve the problem of electoral reform for
the welfare of the Fatherland and without any
outside pressure. ,
There were- labor processions . Iso in many of the
provincial towns, but no disorder anywhere.
SWEDISH YACHT CLUB GETS BEPLY.
Nothing To Be Made Known About It Until
. After Meeting To-day.
Stockholm. Sweden, Oct. 10. — The reply of the
New York Yacht Club to the Inquiry of tho
Royal Swedish Yacht Club regarding the condi
tions under which a challenge for the America's
Cup by the latter would be accepted was re
ceived to-day, but Rear Admiral Haigj who has
the matter In charge, refused to divulge the con
tents of the reply until after the meeting of the
yacht club, which has been called for morrow
afternoon.
News dispatches from Stockholm indicate that
some misapprehension exists In Sweden regard
ing thf status of the • ■
challenre for the America's Cup. As a matter ■!
tact, no formal challenge has been made by tho
Swedish yachtsmen. Their n-in -i .nt communication
to tho N>w York ya/-).t Club was largely
nature of an inquiry at to conditions, tin,,
and the reply of the cLuh. over the arrival of
a published dispatch from Stockholm says the rn<«.-it
intense Interest prevails, consists merely of
of the resolutions adopted In answer to Thomas
Upton's challeiiK I*.1 *. defining the race conditions,
measurement rules and other formalities.

XEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1907.

The resolution of Sir Edward FYy rrjroat
Britain) to the ■ go* et amenta i: -
stltute the court as they have agreed
on tho method by which th*» Judges are to be
seed almost unanimously
by the oomraitu •
The work of tho peace conference Is now prac
tically finished. The sitting to-morrow will
merely agree on tho form of a declaration re
garding obligatory arbitration.
The commission drafting the final act of the
crir.f*:rence. discussed it length to day whether
or not the convention concluded at this confer
ence should be open or closed. Open conven
tions are those to which even the powers that
did not assist at the <• inference can later ad
here, within a flxt'd period, while closed con
ventions are limited to the signatory powers
■ pr**s«'nt at tho convention*. Tho commission
has not yet reached a decision In this matter.
In l k »l»'.>, at the first conference, the conven
tions were closed, ehlrfly at th» Instigation of
• ir-at Britain and Italy, the former country de
siring to avoid the adhesion of the South Afri
can republics and the lattor wanting to prevent
the adhesion of the Pope. This second objec
tion still holds good, while the only states not
represented at this conference are Abyssinia,
Andorra, the Congo, Liberia, Morocco, Monaco
and Ban Marino. There is reason to believe that
it will be decided to leave open the convention
regarding the rules of warfare, but to close the
others.
The most important part of to-day's discus
sion concerned the theory, sustained chiefly by
Joseph H. Choate, of the American delegation,
that, while the decisions of the majority should
not be Imposed upon the minority, the latter
should not prevent tho former from applying
the decisions reached. Mr. Choate cited as ( . x .
amples the proposals forbidding the use of
dumdum bullets and asphyxiating gases In war
fare. Both these propositions were adopted in
1899, although they were not voted unanimously.
Similarly the proposition brought before the
present conference concerning the collection of
contractual debts would have been adopted, even
if Switzerland and a few other powers had per
sisted in voting against It.
Notwithstanding these and other pood argu
ments, Mr, Choate's theory was defeated by a
coalition composed of M Xelidoff (Russia),
M. de Beaufort (Netherlands), Baron Marschall
yon Bieberstein (Germany) and Mercy yon K;i
pos-Mere (Austria-Hungary), who demanded
absolute unanimity for a question of such Im
portance as obligatory arbitration. Consequently,
the only hope of reaching unanimity Is In the
agreement on the declaration to be presented
to-morrow, but this, to satisfy everybody, will
have to be somewhat colorless.
Baron Marschall yon Bieberstein will leave
The Hague for Germany after the sitting of to
morrow. The next plenary meeting of the con
ference will be on Wednesday of next week.

CITY'S HIGHESTWORKER
JOB 671 FEET IN AIR.
Breathless Crcncd Sees Steeplejack
Put Ball on Singer Pole.
The> highest point above the sidewalk ever at
tained by a man outside of a balloon in Xew York
was reached yesterday by Ernest <':ip*>lle. steeple
jack, who placed the golden ball on the top of the
flagpole that surmounts the Singer Building, in
lower Broadway. The- ball is just 671 feet above
the trolley tracks, for the lantern at the base of
the steel flagpole is 612 feet from the pavement and
the flagstaff is fifty-nine feet long.
There wore crowds of spectators, and at one time
It seemed as if traffic would be stopped. Half a
dozen policsmen were needed to keep things mov
ing shortly after Capelle began his climb, at 1:30
o'clock in the afternoon. But even at that the
portly member of the traffic squad who reigns at
Cortlandt street and Broadway Bald the crowds
■were not so large as those that gathered during
the days when the steel work of the tower was
being put up. "They're eettln' used to it." he
Bald, "an" all they want now is to see somebody
fall off." But this criticism seemed hardly ap
plicable, because the comments of those who
strained their necks In gazing wen! were all of
an anxious note.
It seemed that everybody downtown find heard
of the spectacular .•!imhi:<:r. and at noon all th?
best places for peping the pole were occupied. Che
curtain raiser, so to speak, occurred when first one
man and a few minutes later a second shinned up
the polo by the aid of the "stirrup" and "boat
swain's chair." A hush fell en the spectators.
The men went up about half way. 'and after
i swinging nrnund a hit slid down again and disap
peared. For a time the throng that lined Broad
way with upturned faces, like participants In some
suiv-worshlpping rite, thought the steeplejack had
"lost hit nerve." As a matter of fact, the two
climbers were Ironworkers sent up to. straighten
the steel shaft that had been bent in the process
of 1 elns swung Into position.
It was not until 1:30 when CapeUe, a compact.
wiry little man, dressed in well pressed clothe*.
appeared among the Ironworkers busied about the
dome, who, in their blue overalls, looked the part.
Capplle took off his coat flannel waistcoat and
derby. It was all ii matter of mere business, and.
ii.« lie remarked In reply to a question by a cub
reporter: "Afraid! Why. it's no better — or worse
—to fall off a little country church steeple than It
Is to fall off this pole."
The "boatswain's chair" was rigged quickly, and
Capelle. with the ban, which is a foot In diameter,
stuns under his arm, beer to make I Ii way up
the pole, "hitching" alone two fret at a time.
Somebody in the Broadway crowd tried to start
a cheer, but r«»ally It wasn't as elective as a
Barnard class yell.
Meanwhile CapeUe got to th» top ar.d clfimpf-d
the hall in place From the street he appeared a
giant, providing the onlooker recoils-ted the height
rf the building an.', the effect of perspective Some
how his position In silhouette against the firmament
made him prominent out of all proportion to the
building.
With the ball ©nee In place, the crowd saw htm
puttering about the top as he lay back In the rope
sling that held him. He was putting the gold leaf
on tho ball, hut this was not evident until he had
finished and slipped down a few feet.
Capelle then threw out .i ting that fluttered away
in the br'-.-T ■ and finally swooped down on a slant
of wind until it struck Broadway, if Capelle bad
wtached it ho would have sc«-n a struggling crowd
fighting for bits of the flag. But he paid no h«"M
to thn earth crawling souvenir hunters and busied
himself by hoisting up tHe flng halliards, which he
attached to the pole Then a pall of paint was
sent up to him. and he began the work of coating
tho steel shaft. By this time be was being watched
by persons within a radius of five miles, but ha
went at his work as calmly as any man painting a
fence. Th" "Job." as he prosaically terms it, will
continue to-day and probably to-morrow.
At noon on Saturday Cape • ■ work will be fin
ished, and then an American flag. 20 feet long and
12 feet wide, will be broken out from the pola.
Immediately afterward a flag with th« name
"Singer" will be flung loose. Besides this a time
nil will be dropped from the pole every four hours
of the twenty-four, and will bo illuminated at night.
This, however, v.ill not occur until the building is
roady for occupancy next spring.
The Tribune reporter had tried to find out how
much Capelle was getting for his neck-risking Jot>.
The Singer press agent said: "I know it's bet n
Bald he's getting I; •>«>. but Tve b*en asked the
question a .loz(jri time*, and I'm not allowed to
answer Capelle dismissed It by saying he wasn't ,
"giving away trade aecrctn."
Register to-morrow! That is, if you are one
of the thousands who should have done so but
have neglected their duty. It is important that
the full Republican vote should be polled this
year. If you fail to register you cannot vote.

of Captain and Fifteen Men.
Copenhagen, Oct. 10.— The Arctic steamer
Frithjof. which accompanied the "Wellman

was unable to withstand a storm which she en
countered off Cape Lantranes.
The Arctic steamer Frithjof was regarded as th»
real veteran of the Arctic exploration service. She
been under charter many times in Arctic
work and was the most widely known of all the
Norwegian Steamers engaged in similar enterprises.
The Frithjof was used by the expedition sent out
by William Ztegier to search for the North Pole
