IRRITATION I.\ T FRANCE
Fear of Complications tcith Germany
Over Morocco Grooving.
Paris. Sept. 10.— It is officially announced that
the Franco-Spanish note relating to the Moroc
can situation has been definitely drafted and
yent to Madrid for verification, after which It
will be immediately communicated to the pow
' era. ■
The tore of the German press in commenting:
«m the Moroccan situation, and especially the
• utterances of the organ of the Imperial Chan
cellor Prince Yon Billow, in forecasting Ger
many's rejection of the Franco-Spanish note
r<?Rardin«r Morocco, has revived uneasiness here
and the report that Dr. Vessel, the German Con

act the reinstatement of Rcmiqui. the Governor
of El-Kazar. who was dismissed on the recom
mendation of TA Menebhi, formerly Moroccan
Minister of War. for brigandage, has emphasized
the had Impression.
A renewal of the tension between France and
Germany and possibly an acute international
complication I* feared. French official circles,
however, retain their calm. «nd it is there .an

right. intends to pursue her policy as already
outlined.
Regarding the cost of the Franco-Spanish, op
erations in Morocco, which the German press In
sists shall not be guaranteed by Mulal Haflg. It
is pointed out that France and Spain acted as
the mandatories of the powers under the Alge
clras act. Germany did not object to these
operations, and attention is directed to the fact
that she was the first to ins on immediate
compensation for the German merchants who
suffered at Casablanca.
The French press is displaying day by day
more Irritation, which has beer Increased by the
expulsion yesterday of Pierre Adigard. a mem
ber of the French Chamber of Deputies, from
the German manoeuvre irrounds in Alsace-Lor
raine, Furthermore, the report received to
day that Emperor •William intends' to cross the
French frontier from Alsace-Lorraine to view
the landscape from the top of a mountain in
France furnishes fresh occasion for the more
sensational Journals to cry "provocation." "La
Patrie" says:

defiance and bravado.
EI'CHARISTIC COXGRESS.
Korfottc Attacks Declaration of
King on Ascending Throne.
Ix>ndr,n, Sept 10 —After a Pontifical high mass
In Westminster Cathedral this morning, cele
brated by Monsignor Amiette. Archbishop of
Parip, there were thrw sectional meetings in
connection with the International Eucharistic
Conpreßi-. Two were conducted in English and
the third in French. Cardinal Vannutelli. the
Papa! legate, presided over the larger of the
two English meetings. All the papers read
dealt with the Eucharist, and the contributors
Included the Right Rev. Abbot Gasquet. who
upoke on "The Holy Euohßrlst in Pre-Reforma
tlon Times." and the Right Rev. Monsignor
Canon Moves. Bishop of Northampton, whose
pui'ject was "The Reformation and the Mass."
The declaration against the Roman Catholic
faith which the King of England Is obliged to
make on hi« accession to the throne was dls
cupsed at one meeting. Lord Llandaff char
acterised the declaration as outrageous. He
said It waa not necessary, and that a fresh at-
Ikt^mpt should be made to get rid of It.
I ) The Duke of Norfolk referred to the declara
tion as a "blasphemous collection of phrases re
volting to every Catholic ear," which must be
deeply painful for the sovereign to utter.
The flrat evening meeting was at the Albert
Hall. As the Papal legate, preceded by a large
number of other dignitaries of the Church,
walked to the platform the vabt audience arose,
cheering frantically. Resolutions pledging de
votion to the Blessed Sacrament and unalter
able fidelity to the Apostolic See were carried
by accla nation.
The Duke of Norfolk delivered the principal
address. The Archbishop of Montreal declared
that the protest of the Protestant societies was
not a national one. and that the congress
marked the re-entry of Catholicism into Its old
kingdom. Three days hence, he said, the Holy
Sacrament, hitherto only carried under priests'
robes, would be borne publicly through the
streets of London. As the result of this con
gress he would cherish the hope that the whole
of England would return to the Catholic faith.
It was announced to-night that the Protestant
Alliance would seek an injunction to prevent
Archbishop Bourne from carrying the Host In
Sunday's procession. The authorities thus far
have taken no action against the procession, and
the polioe are making arrangements to preserve
or^.- • along tht; line of march.
The announcement was made that the next
congress would be held in Montreal in 1910.

TOLSTOY ACCLAIMED
Russian Newspapers Publish Jubilee
Numbers— Hundreds Visit Him.
St. Petersburg. Sept. 10.— The newspapers of
Russia appear to-day almost without exception
as Tolstoy Jubilee numbers. and they publish
pages devoted to his life, criticisms of his liter
ary work and anecdotes of his career. The
newspapers pass over the disputes aroused by
the count's later writings and his attacks on the
government and the liberal movement, and unite
in appreciation of the greatness of his life and
the brilliancy of his earlier novels.
Justifiable pride is expressed iii Tolstoy's place
abroad, particularly in England and the United
States. The ' Novoe Vremya" calls him the
"Shakespeare of the nineteenth century," and
calls his novel "War and Peace" the Russian
•Iliad" which created' a standard of Russian
patriotism. The fame of this novel, the paper
says, never can be destroyed by the author's
later attacks on nationalism.
Over the count's later moral and philosophical
teachings the tone is either lukewarm or con
demnatory, and will be far from satisfactory to
Tolstoy, who considers his earlier romances as
insignificant compared to his later philosophy.
No especial celebration of the eightieth birth
day anniversary of the count is being held in
St. Petersburg to-day. The school authorities
have refused to permit memorial exercises in the
city Institutions, and all attempts to decorate
houses or exhibit portraits and busts of Tolstoy
have been frowned on.
The little flag station of Zaseika, which is the
telegraph station for Tasnaya Poliana, was ut
terly swamped to-day by the inrush of con
gratulatory messages to Tolstoy sent from all
parts of the world. Hundreds were received
from Berlin. London and other European cen
tres. There were also many such communica
tions from New Tork and other American cities,
as well as several from Japan and New Zea
land. More than one thousand dispatche* of
this kind were received yesterday.
Several hundred visitors, teachers, students
and correspondents disregarded the wishes of
the Tolstoy family »nd called on the count at
his home.
An official statement explains the attitude of
the Minister of the Interior on the celebration.
It 6hows that many of the provincial governors
abused the discretion vested in them with re
gard to forbidding the celebration. It was the
intention of the ministry merely to prevent po
litical demonstrations and the glorification of
Tolstoy's anti-religious and liberal ideas. There
was no desire to interfere with the honor#
shown to Tolstoy as a writer. Premier Stolypln
replied in a similar tone to the Mayor of Mos
cow, who appealled to him against the action of
the Governor of that province In prohibiting the
municipal celebrations. As a result these will be
held according to programme.
Tasnaya Poliana. Sept. 10— Count Tolstoy
passed the day quietly witH his family and inti
mate friends. His convalescence is progressing
favorably, but he is still weak.
MANY AT TOLSTOY CELEBRATION.
More than fourteen hundred persons, mostly Rus
sians but with a fair smattering of Americans,
filled the main Cooper Union auditorium last night
to take part in the Tolstoy celebration given under
the auspices of the Educational League. In the
audience were many women.
Music and addresses made up the programme.
Bolton Hall, who Is prominent in the socialist move
ment, spoke on "Tolstoy the Reformer." Leslie W.
Sprague took "Tolstoy the Prophet" for his theme.
Professor Isaac A. Hourwich, who spoke in Rus
sian, was listened to attentively Several of the
addresses were made In Yiddish.
VSEMPLOYED IX COUNCIL.
Glasgow Chancellor Promises Aid-
Procession in Liverpool.
Glasgow. Sept. 10.— A remarkable scene was wit
nessed this afternoon at the offices of the City
Council. Crowds of the unemployed gathered and
a delegation of twelve was admitted to the meet-
Ing The councillors received the delegation bf
rising from their seats. The spokesman of the
unemployed said that never had there been such
distress in Glasgow. "Every human unit," said the
man. "is entitled to food. We make no outrageous
request; we are only here to plead for the souls
of men and women. They demand work."
The Chancellor replied that the council received
the delegation in a spirit of brotherhood and that
it would do all in its power to help those who
needed work.
Large bodies of troops were held in reserve this
afternoon Jn expectation of rioting and attacks on
property. The unemployed however, have decided
to refrain from demonstrating for one week to give
the council an opportunity to adopt measure* for
the improvement oi the situation.
Liverpool. Sept. 10— The unemployed of this city
to-day organised a procession and marched to the
Town Hall. Two deputations were received by the
I^ord Mayor. They showed that ten thousand of
the laborers of Liverpool were out of work and
asked for relief. A relief fund has been started.
STRANGE MARINE MONSTER CAUGHT.
Belfast. Sept. 10— A message received hfre from
the Copeland Islands, a small gToup off County
I>o»rn, fays that a local fisherman yesterday shot
a snakollke sea monster and towed the body ashore.
It is thirty feet long and six feet In circumference
and has a fanshaped tall and a head like a seal.
CHOLERA IN ST. PETERSBURG.
St. Petersburg. Sept. 10 — Asiatic cholera is spread-
Ing In St. Petersburg, and the sudden jump in the
statistics is taken to mean that the city authorities
failed to take proper precautions against an epi
demic. The first suspicious cases were discovered
a fortnight ago. The bulletin issued to-night re
ports flfty-two cases and eighteen deaths, but it
is believed that treble that number exists within
the city limits.

tleship fleet on its voyage around the world, ar

epidemic. The heat has been oppressive for sev
eral days.

seph Devlin, members of the Nationalist party,
left here today on the Bteamshlp Oceanic for the
United States. They will address home rule meet
ings In New Tork, Philadelphia and Chicago and
attend a home rule convention lit Boston.
WON'T PROSECUTE BERKMAN LAWYER.
Meyer London, counsel for Alexander B«rkman,
the anarchist, will not be prosecuted on a charge
of perjury, having received his second Judicial »d
monition yesterday within two days. It was all
because Mr. London had been inaccurately informed
by Emma Goldman, the woman ' anarchist editor
of "Mother Earth," that no minutes had been taken
at the trial of Berkman when he was sentenced
by Magistrate Corrlgan to five days on the Island
for trying to break up a meeting of the unemployed
on Labor Day. Miss Goldman in turn had been
inaccurately informed by Mary Smith, also a wom
an anarchist, who wa* arrested with Berkman.
TTlth this secondhand information Mr. London
mad* an affidavit that "on information and bsllef"
no minutes had been taken. Now he will appeal
from Berkrna.n'B seatencft on the ground that he
was convicted an insufficient evidence. This will
come up after Berkman has finished his five days.

ALDEHMEN PLAY BASEBALL.
New York's City Fathers will feel more like
grandfathers for a week or so. for as the shades
of dewy eve were falling: last night about twenty
of them limped off the field at American League
Park after a six-inning baseball game, in which
the Democratic team rolled up a score of about
22. against the Republicans 10. Maybe the score
isn't right, because along toward the end things
got mixed up, and the Democrats began to go
around and around, "repeating," so to speak, but
since there isn't an Independence I^eaguo Alder
man in the board, there was no shout for a re
count x
The Republicans made three runs in the first
inning, and when tha Democrats came to the bat
the lengthy Alderman Beyer strode forth as pitcher
for the minority team. He Is the tallest member
of the board, and Just to make him peevish a crowd
of Democratic rooters kept yelling: "Its a ringer;
lfe 'Long Paf McCorren."
But "Little Tim" Sullivan. th* umpire, raised a
commanding hand, and the slaughter began. Alder
man John J. F. Mulcahy pitched for the Democratic
team and ran bases for such of his brother states
men as were too portly to do more than walk.
Somebody said there had been a greased pig con
test before the game, but questions as to this met
with remarks about 'gittln' personal." Anyhow
the committee netted $300 to be used for charity.

LAUNCH TWO WARSHIPS.
Another British Dreadnought and a
Brazilian Battleship on the Water.
Newcastle-on-Tyne, Sept. 10.— What on paper
at least is the most powerful warship ever built
for any navy was launched here to-day for
Brazil. It was named Minas Geraes by Mmc,
Regis de Oliveira, wife of the Brazilian Minister
to Great Britain.
When completed this vend will have a dis
placement approaching twenty thousand tons,
and she will carry a main armamsnt of twelve
12-inch guns, arranged as are the guns on the
battleships now bei^s built for Japan— that is,
so that ten of them can be fired simultaneously
on either broadside. Another battleship like the
Minas Geraes is to be launched on November 7,
and a third is to be built.
There have been reports that Brazil would
sell these three battleships to some other coun
try. Japan, Germany and Great Britain have
been mentioned as powers that would acquire
them, but the Brs:=:iian government has de
clared its Intention of keeping the vessels for Us
own use. In London it has been asserted that
the acquisition of the three battleships would
be the only possible way for Great Britain to
maintain her naval sui -macy on the "two pow
ers standard."
Portsmouth, Sept. 10.— The St. Vincent, the
largest and heaviest battleship ever built for the
British navy, was launched successfully here
to-day. As the warship slipped from her blocks
she was named by the Countess Beauehamp.
Counting the th-ee cruising battleships of thu
Invincible class, the St. Vincent is the eighth
vessel of the Dreadnought type to be launched
in this country. The experience gained in the
construction of the Dreadnought has been util
ized in the St. Vincent, and It is believed that
some of her additional weight Is accounted for
by heavier armament for protection against tor
pedoes and other improvements.
The St. Vincent was laid down in December of
last year. She is supposed to be of about lO.'JiiU
tons and her cost has been placed at &500.000.

REPORT ON QVEEXS JAIL.
Worst Kept in District, Says Hynes
—Harvey Replies.
Albany, Sept. 10.-Th« condition of the Queen*
County Jail in severely criticised In a report to-day
to the State Commission of Prisons by Commis
sioner Thomas W. Hynes, who recently inspected
the institution. "I have no Hesitation." says Com
missioner Hynes, "in pronouncing It the worst k»pt
Jail in the 3d Judicial District. It Is evidently al
lowed to run Itself."
Commissioner Hynes recommends a complete
change in the management of the institution. -Pol
itics may be responsible In part for the defect*
complained of." continues the report, "as the offlo*
of Sheriff Is elective, and there seems to be a labor
union objection to putting prisoners to work around
the Jail There is. however, no possible excuse to
ofTer for the doubling up of prisoners and for the
uncleanllness in all parts of the main building.
Commissioner Hynes expresses the opinion that
"under the revision of the charter of the city of
New York now in progress this jail should be
placed under the direction of the Department of
Correction, where it rightfully belongs."
Sheriff H. 8. Harvey of Queens County, when his
attention was called to the extracts from the re
port of Commissioner Hynes, said:
Mr. Hynes has been trying for years to .have«U
the jails In the city put under the controt of Urn?
Commissioner of Corrections, and to- d «> "*'
Queens County Jail Is the only one not under that
department. You know. Commissioner Hynes wa.«
himself Commissioner of Corrections under Mayor
Low. It is unfortunate, perhaps, in .«ome wa>s
that his report did not appear before the primaries
last Tuesday.
Commissioner Hynes. I wish to say Is a yery
conscientious Commissioner, he is amply qualine.l
to speak on the subject of prisons, and ne snows
no partiality to any one. but he fails to take into
consideration the conditions I am up against, i
agree with him that the Queens County jail is a
urgent need of repair, vl'hen I first took omc*. a
year and ten m6nths ago. i found that the jail.
h1>1»- t<> accommodate three hundred prisoners, had
in all just eight good locks on its cell doors, t om
missioner Hynes paid the place a ■. isi*Ht the time
ami made a Just and pcathing report on tne con
ditions. Six months later he made another visit,
and that time, his report was very flattering to
my management. I had locks put on all the doors.
many other repairs were made, and I hail the
place cleaned; and I have kept up the good work.
The building was never in better condition than
It is now. and as a result I have not lost one
prisoner while I have been Sheriff.
. But 1 ha\e had to double up. I don't approve
of the practice, but I can't help myself unless I
put the overflow on the roof: and there are still
a. number of repair* which have to be made, hut
they must come gradually. They are In the hnnds
of the Commissioner of Buildings. I can't make
them myself, and lie hasn't sutricifnt appropria
tions to accomplish them nil in a lump. The paint- :
ers are at work painting the building now. Com
missioner Hynes thinks I ought to put the prison
er* to work painting the Inside of the jail, but
there are five Btories. It would have to be done
from scaffolding, and It would be a great respon
sibility, for wlilch the county or city would have
to pay dearly, no doubt, to put a horde of inex
pf>rien<-ed men to work under such dangerous con
ditions. It is true also that the unions object.
1 don't agree with Mr. Hynes that politics enters
into the question, for the simple reason that the
Sheriff of Queens County cannot be rcnomlnated
to succeed litmsetf. and would have no Incentive
in ■ playing favorites. In. any case the law will
not permit tlie authority over the Jail to bo trans
ferred during: my term of office, which will ex
pire a year from next December.
