EMPEROR'S CONDITION . PUBLIC FEAR ALLAYED. Austrian Sovereign Xo Worse — Temporary Regency. Vienna, Oct. 13. — The circulation of many un founded reports regarding the Emperor-King's condition caused groat public anxiety to-day, and thousands of persona gathered in the park purroundins the palace In order to be reas ture3. Information obtained direct from the Emperor-King's household shows that his maj esty VB& considerably better, both in health an 3 spirits this morning. He passed an excellent ritlit. sleeping until C o'clock, when he awoke and ate a mure hearty breakfast than usual. The physicians made an examination In the afternoon, which pointed to the possibility of the development of further catarrhal inflamma tion. His temperature later slightly Increased, but his majesty retained his spirits and received the Foreign Minister, Baron yon Aehrenthal. He n!?o gave an audience to several high official?, after which he made an unsuccessful attempt to din?. The physicians are of the opinion that thf lc.=s of appetite does not arise from the fever, but is the consequence of the Emperor-King's recent complete confinement indoors. They con sider this symptom not serious. His majesty sat up all day. There seems to be n> Likelihood at present of pneumonia, but ex treme precautions .•■•-■ to prevent further chill- Hitherto no bulletins have been Issued, but if lii« majesty la stricken with pneumonia daily bulletins will be published. The Emperor-King has repeatedly asked to be taken into the open air. savins: that he bad 1" D used to it all bis life and that otherwise he could not recover quickly. The physicians refused the request. The establishment of a regency is planned for October !♦?. when the Ausgleich must be laid be fore both houses of parliament. This can be done only if the Emperor lias sanctioned the bill, and. as his majesty is unable to discuss the matter with his ministers, a temporary regency ■will be necessary. NO FEAR OF DISUNION. Diplomats at The Hague Discuss Austrian Conditions. Th* Hague. Oct. 13. -Emperor Francis Jo seph's condition Is being closely watched by the diplomats here, especially by those belonging to the Trip Alliance. A cipher telegram from Vienna received by a loading diplomat here to-day says that the opti mistic reports of the condition of the Emperor- Kir.g are Issued purposely, bo as not to alarm the people, but that in reality the doctors are anxious, fearing the growing weakness of the patient, which is due chiefly to Insufficient nour ishment and lack of Bleep because of the cough. The gravest danger, the dispatch says, which la not mentioned In the offical communications, la from the heart, which may be too weak to •withstand the general depression. The telegram ends by paying that the feeling of regret over the condition of the Kmperor-King, both at home and abroad, is touching. The delegates are discussing the question of what would happen in t,as" of the death of the monarch. The diplomats, some of whom know the situation In Austria thoroughly, say that Because the dismemberment of Austria and Hungary at the death of the Emperor-King has been so often predicted it will not happen, the authorities being prepared for such an event and having long since planned the severest measures to maintain order and to check with out mercy any separatist movement, especially •. Hungary. Bohemia and Trieste. They admit. however, that the death of the Emperor-King would have great Influence on the internal and foreign policy of the government, as his suc cessor will not command the same Influence over the people or have the sympathy which they have accorded Francis Joseph. Internal troubles may thus be postponed, but -*-rhap3 not altogether averted in the future, while Austria's position in regard to Germany. from one of perfect equality due to the respect rommanded by Francis Joseph, may become somewhat dependent. Furthermore, the con stant Austro-Italian friction may be dangerously augmented under the new Emperor, who is known to profess a decided leaning toward cleri calism. A prominent Austrian, now in The Hague, ex presw d the opinion to-day that it would not be at all Burprislng if the orthodoxy of the Austrian court under the new Emperor would give fresh Impetus to a movement which would rauno a rupture with Italy, and even dissatisfy the Vatican, as the present Pope, although owing Ma election to the veto put upon the sele. Uon of Cardinal Rampolla by Emperor Francis Joseph, does not wish to see a revival of the acute Etage of feeling between Church and Btate in Italy. ANOTHER LAKE SHIP SUNK. Steel Steamer John W.

PRICE THRKE CENTS. PRESIDENT SMALL SUSPENDED BY UNION. STRIKERS DEFY HIM AT STORMY MEETING. Decide to Continue Fight Against Telegraph Companies Co- M fident of Victory. Officers of the local telegraphers' union an nounced at an early hour this morning that word had been received in the city from Chi cago that President Small, of the Commercial Telegraphers' Union of America, had been sua ! pended by tile national executive board in Chi cago. The information was contained in a no tice to all locals, as follows: You are hereby notified that the general cxc- I cutive board, in due exercise of the author::/ i vested in it, has suspended S. J. Small as presl- I dent of the Commercial Telegraphers' Union of America. The strike will be conducted by the general executive board. You are directed to keep your striking brothers and sisters In line. It is the intention of the board that in the future this strike will be con ducted by men who have red blood. S. J. KONEN'KAMP, M. J. REIDY, J. M. SULLIVAN General Executive Board. The meeting called by President Small in Clin ton Hall yesterday afternoon, to consider the call-* 1 ing off of the strike of the telegraphers, decided with wild applause and cheers, which lasted for ten minutes, to pay no attention to Mr. Small's message and keep up the strike. Small was denounced in unmeasured terms by several speakers, and when lie spoke in bis own behalf was received with derisive shouts and jeers. The meeting- was the largest that Local 16 has ever held, apparently every striking man and woman being present. Mr. Small during the progress of the meeting was charged with, failure to do his duty as president of the union, with gross carelessness and with lack of con : fidence. Tho meeting was presided over by | President Abeam of Local 16. Mr. Small ar j rived before any of the other speakers, but Mr. Aheurn tiled until Daniel L. Russell, chair man of the board of strategy, and Percy Thomas, who were at variance with Mr. Small as to methods, arrived before he opened the meeting. Mr. Small was very coolly received when he came in, while the others were hailed with shouts of delight. Mr. Small explained hi.« ac tion in sending the telegrams to the locals on I Saturday night recommending them to call meetings to consider the question of calling tha strike off. Ml:. SMALL STATES CASE. He said, in part: I want to make a plain statement. Some mi you may like my action and some may not. but you have seen doubtless in the papers a state : ment of what I have done. I say in justification, that my duty to the membership of the union t put above a!! else, and wanted to point out how matters start!. The strike has lasted. nine weeks in the East and thirteen weeks in San Francisco. and week after week efforts have been made.to get the companies to agree to meet the repre ! sentatives of the union, tut have failed. ,^_ When Commissioner Neil! finally told me that j the companies absolutely refused to treat with, the telegraphers while they were on strike, this, coupled with the knowledge that the national treasury is almost depleted, made it my duty to put the facts before you. Can you finance th» strike with the little assistance you can get from the national? The next speaker was Percy Thomas, who was greeted with cheers by the men and the waving of handkerchiefs by the women. Ha censured Mr. Small in latter term?. "He talks about the funds in the national treasury." he said, "in his closing remarks and says that fan are too low la keep up tho ; strike. How does this jibe with his previous* statements, in which he talked of raising a fund lof 12.000,000? » Derisive shouts") If I had a case in which I wanted to get Sinai! as an at torney and represented the telegraph companies. Small would certainly be the man I would em ploy. (Hoots and cat-calls.) Small acted without the authority of the general executive board." The speaker then read ■ message from Chi-" vago to the eiToet that tho Chicago local hud sent a statement to the papers condemning Small .aid advising the strikers to remain out. Every town North. South. East an.i West, he lieved. would take the same action. If ther» were no funds, ha said, what was going to bo done with the $16,000 in the national treasury of the union which would shortly be increased to $18,000 or 519.000, or more. MR SMALL ACCUSED. "Rather than let the union be defeated." "• said, "the $10,000 mutual benefit fund should hsj devoted la tight the companies until we win. What have we to say of a man at the head ••? this organization who sat doing nothing dajr after day at the Astor House, talking with nicn people, while the interest of the union went to hell?" Wild yells of disapproval of Small followed. It took the chairman several minutes to restore order. "Small in his course has been recreant to th* trust Imposed in him." said Mr. Thomas. **H« once suggested that word be sent to National Treasurer Wesley Russell that there were no funds." Here the speaker was interrupted by snouts of. "Out with him!" and other expressions of the kind in reference to Mr. Small. Mr. Thomas went on: "I can swear by the honor of my soul, and the honor of my mother, who I believe Is on her deathbed, that there is nothing In this strik» tor me. 1 resigned as detmty president in order to give my energies and work to this strike. It could not be lost if we work right. " "That's the way Thomas always talks," said Mr. Small, getting up. "He always talks about swearing by the honor of his mother and his soul." v A storm of disapproval greeted Mr. Small as soon as he -said this. Several people shouted io> put him out. and one or two people shouted out that he ought to resign. Mr. Small, when the racket died away, said that it was for the union to act on the question of striking. "I heard a man asking how much did I get." . he said, "but things like that don't worry me, and I don't mean to resign." RUSSELL TAKES FLOOR. Daniel L. Russell then took the floor and was received with shouts of delight. Mr. Russell called Into Small without gloves. "This was Sam Small's strike up to last night." he said, "and up to last night, as far as I can see. * Sam Small did all he could to lose his strike. It is your strike to-day. He says he did not sanction the strike, and neither did I. but I supported it after it started. The general who spoils a battle because bis lieutenant makes a blunder isa poor general. When Small wa3 at the Astor House last summer he made so many bluffs as to make it impossible to retreat, and the general who does this is a tool. Us sent for the national executive board and wanted to hove a strike to get something out oX
