Conservatives Accept Cabinet —
Surrender at Granada — Peace
Throughout Country.
Managua. Aug. Sl.— Order is being gradu
ally brought out of the chaos which has
prevailed since the outbreak of the recent
revolution. General Juan J. Estrada, the
provisional President, was inaugurated in
the hall of Congress yesterday evening.
The troop* have been paid off and mus
tered out and peace reigns. The popularity
of the new President is shown by the fact
that a large number of prominent persons
from the provinces have come to Managua
to extend to him their congratulations,
while the people of Granada have presented
to him a gold laurel wreath.
By mutual agreement General Luis Mena

In a church at Granada, surrendered on
Monday to the Estrada forces, according

refused to surrender until General Estrada
pave assurance that as prisoners they would

the last stand of the Madriz forces.

Rome, Aug. 31.— The Pope , in receiving

Rush from Europe Expected to
Exceed That of 1907.
According to reports received by th©
various steamship lines at this port the
westward rush of passenger traffic this
season will break all records. The outlook
is that the record year of 1907, which
amazed the steamship companies them
selves, will be overtopped this season with
the homecomers.
The North German Lloyd Line received
information yesterday announcing that the
Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse. the vessel on
which Mayor Gaynor was recently shot,
left - Southampton and Cherbourg filled to
capacity. Practically all the officers'
quarters have been given over to passen
gers, including the suite of Captain Polack.
This condition prevailed on the Kaiser W!l
hnm 11. which brought in on Tuesday 561
fl!st cabin passengers, which is practically
the beginning of the exodus from Europe.
When the Kaiser Wilhelm II cleared
Southampton she left behind over one hun
dred prospective passengers. who had pone
there in the hope of getting accommoda
tions. The same -condition prevailed when
she left Cherbourg.
The big Cunarder Lusitania. which is due
to dock this evening, has 2,044 passengers,
and is crowded to capacity. All her state
rooms are full, and a number of her officers
have -doubled up" to make room for per
sons who could not be accommodated other
wise. A representative of the Cunard Line
said yesterday that all the company's
westbound ships from Liverpool and the
Mediterranean would come over with full
passenger complements until the middle of
According to information brought over
by the Kaiser Wilhelm 11. of the North
German Lloyd Line, the demand for west
ward transportation has become so great
that steamship speculators could make a
fortune in the disposition of transportation
if tickets could be handled as easily as
theatre tickets. When the Kaiser left
Cherbourg a week ago any one willing to
give up his stateroom could easily dispose
of his ticket at a profit of between $50
and $75.
The opening of the schools this month is
largely responsible for the homeward rush.
Thousands of school teachers who have
been abroad on vacation are coming in
daily. The Cunard liner Pannonia. in last
night from the Mediterranean, brought in
115 school teachers. The opening of the
schools has also influenced the return of
parents who have been travelling abroad
with their children.
According to the advance bookings for
the westbound ships the homeward rush is
expected to eclipse the figures of the
record of 1907. From January 1 to August
28 of this year. 51.700 first cabin passengers
have arrived at this port on the steam
ships of all lines. The total of the second
cabin for the same period was 152.681. and
of the steerage 741,918. These figures
show an increase in the cabin business and
a decrease of the steerage compared with
1968 and 1908. The record for second cabin
and steerage traffic, however, is still held
by 1907. The first cabin business for this
year thus far exceeds that of 1907 by LOGS
While the steamship lines are putting
into service all available steamships it Is
believed that hundreds of travellers will
have to remain from two to three weeks
longer abroad than they had contemplated.
The Hamburg-American liner Kaiserin
Auguste Victoria, which arrived here a
week ago tilled to capacity, will bring
over on her next westward trip a full pas
senger complement which had been booked
several months in advance.
Traffic Men Expect Labor Day to
Break All Records.
Passenger apents of the various trunk
lines running out of New York City talk
in six figures when referring to the travel
they expect to handle for Labor Day
m.n ation purposes, beginning to-nTorrow.
They are tempted to add one more
cipher when estimating the incoming traf
fic when Labor Day has passed.
An agreement has already been reached
among them that the rush both ways this
year will knock all former records off
the track.
A gratifying testimonial as to the com
fortable circumstances of the travelling
public is said to lie pigeonholed behind
the brass bars of the Pullman windows.
Passenger department officials say that
travellers. Including excursionists, are
pleading for Pullman accommodations as
rover before.
Officials of the New York Central and
the Pennsylvania railroads announce that
the .alls on th.-m for special trains for
theatrical companies starting out on tour
and for a wonderful outflow of persons
who wish to spend tiie week end away
from town are enormous.
"This week a Brooklyn singing society
with three hundred members has ar
ranged to go to Niagara Falls by way of
the Lehigh Valley, and nl! the three hun
dred have reserved Pullman berths." said
C. S. I^ee. general passenger agent of that
road yesterday.
• All the Lf-hK'h Valley's regular trains
will run fn two or more sections both Fri
day and Saturday."
Brooklyn Man Steps in Front of
Oncoming Machine.
John Kelly, of No. 960 Atlantic avenue,
Brooklyn, was knocked down and instant
ly killed by an automobile yesterday after
noon as he stepped off a Flatt>u^h avenue
■ •! at Avenue X and Flatbush avenue,
Brooklyn. The machine, which' was owned
by Emil Mayer, of No. 319 Washington
avenue, Brooklyn, hurled Kelly several
f.v-T forward. Before the chauffeur could
stop the automobile it passed over the
man's body.
It. Tartn, who was summoned in an am-
bulance. said Kelly had been killed in
stantly. The chauffeur grave his name as
"Tony" Tarraco. of No. 912 Flushing ave
nue. He told the police that the accident
was unavoidable. He said he saw the
car stop and as his machine drew near
Kelly ntepped off the car. He tooted his
horn but Kelly apparently did not hear
it as he walked directly In front of the
Christopher Kelly, a brother, called at
the Flatbush police station, where the
body was taken, and ldentiiled It.
No Basis Found for Charge of
Police Negligence.
The investigation of the cloakmakers'
strike by the grand jury ended yesterday
without any indictment being found after
testimony on both sides had been heard.
Representatives of the Police Department,
including Deputy Commissioner Bugher.
also gave testimony.
The investigation was started on the
initiative of the members of the grand Jury
last week. The main charges were that
the police had been negligent in their duty
in protecting the members of the Cloak,
Suit and Skirt Manufacturers" Protective
Association and their employes from the
assaults of the strikers. No foundation for
the charges was found, and John D. Moore,
its foreman, said last nieht:
"We Investigated the whole matter thor
oughly and found the conditions entirely
creditable to the police authorities."
The charges alleged that disorder result
ing from the strike which the police failed
to suppress amounted to anarchy The
Juror who made them took an active part
in the examination of the witnesses, but
failed to elicit anything to show that the
police did not have the situation well in
Plans for taking an appeal from the in
junction of Supreme Court Justice Ooff
against the- striking cloakmakers declaring
a strikf for the closed shop illegal and for
bidding the picketing of the factories by
the strikers were decided on yesterday at
a conference in the office of ex-Judge Alton
B. F'arker. No 37 Wall street, between ex-
Judge Parker, who has been ret;dn<>d by
tho Cloak and Suit Makers" Union to aid
in preparing the appeal, and Meyer Lon
don, counsel for the strikers. It was stated
that Julius Henry Cohen, counsel for the
Cloak, Suit and Skirt Manufacturers" As
sociation, on whose application the injunc
tion order was issued by Justice Ooff, will
be informed to-day that the appeal is to
be entered.
James D. Francisco, of No. I+s Spring
street, a strike picket, was hold in the
Jefferson Market court yesterday by Magis
trate Herbert in $300 ball for examination
on September 8 on a charge of disorderly
conduct. Edson B. Hooker, a process
server, said he served the prisoner with a
copy of the Injunction of Justice Goff and
fie prisoner tore the paper up. Bail was
furnished in court for Francisco.
A. Greenberg, who appeared as counsel
for the strikers, declared that if Francisco
had read the injunction It was his privi
lege to do as he liked with the paper.
Inquiry Into Big Thefts to Go
On, Despite Five Indictments.
F>win J. Wider, the defaulting cashier of
the local branch of the Russo-Chineae
Bank, pleaded guilty yesterday to the ad
ditional indictments returned against him
since he confessed to the larceny of more
than half a million dollars" worth of secu
rities from the bank's vaults.
Although the total of the five indictments
covers the larceny of nearly $306^000, Acting
District Attorney Moss said the grand Jury
would continue its investigation of Wider's
thefts until it was determined whether or
not he had a confederate. So far us WMer
is concerned, he already faces imprison
ment for not less than twenty-five nor
more than fifty years on the five indict
ments, so that one object, th« adequate
punishment of Wider, which the District
Attorney had In mind when refusing to
agree to the sentence of Wider two weeks
ago after he had pleaded guilty to the first
indictment, has practically been acoom
Wider and his lawyer, Leon B. Ginsberg,
were disappointed yesterday when Mr
Moss a>:ked for further postponement of
sentence, and Judge O" Sullivan postponed
it until September ?
"I am not thoroughly satisfied that others
may not be implicated in some way," said
Mr. Moss "Anyway, the matter has not
been sifted to the bottom, and I am in
favor of keeping wider here in the Tombs,
if necessary, for the five years which is the
limit of the statute of limitations, until we
get to the lxtttom of his .stealings The in
vestigatton will be continued by the- grand
Jury indefinitely, however, even if he is
cent away before then."

on record. She is eleven years old, and was

A Free and Easy Statement of
What Is Going On Across
the Border.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Pir: The people of Connecticut, who
have a traditional propensity for politics,
are going to have all they want this fall.
and, indeed, have already begun their
feast. They will elect four district Con
gressmen and one at large; an entire state
ticket, from Governor to Attorney Gen
eral: a Sheriff in each of the eight coun
ties, and all the Legislature— thirty-five
Senators and at least 253 members of th«
House. At the last session there were 288
members of the House, but already three
one-memter towns have by the 1910 cen
sus reached 5.000 each in population and so
are entitled to two members each This
Legislature will elect a successor to Sen
ator Bulkeley.
There is more or less Interest In every
position, but the Republican selections for
Senator and Governor are what everybody
iB talking about and where the great con
tests will come in. It is conceded that
the Legislature will be Republican. At
the last session it had on Joint ballot 239
Republicans to 61 Democrats. An earth
quake that turned that majority over in
one election would upset the State House
itself. The Senatorship contest is a pe
culiar episode Its Hke has not been seen
t>pfr,re in Connecticut political history.
When Senator Bulkeley was elected over
Samuel Fesmnden in 1905 It was under
stood that he wanted only one term. At
.various times since then, according to the
statements of various friends, he has said
that it wks doubtful if h«* even served his
full term out and he wanted ex-Oovernor
Oeorge P. McLean, of Simabury, to be his
successor. In political circles generally
this was understood to be the case, and
McLean and his friends supposed, of
course, that the Senator would sidestep — ■
not to say work — for his longtime friend
when 1910 came around. Instead he an
nounced a while ago that he was going
back for six yea>-s more himself. Cuiieni
gossip has it that McLean was warned by
a mutual friend two years ago that if he
dared to support Taft "the old man"
would not let him go to the Senate Mc-
Lean did support Taft. and the "old man,"
who was opposed to Taft and who was not
given a place on the state delegation to
Chicago, is now out against McLean, so
that it looks almost as if the mutual
friend had hit it about right.
It is admitted thart only for this unex
pected opposition McLean would have had
a walkover — possibly even a unanimous
nomination He is recognized as the most
brilliant and ablest of the Republican lead
ers in the state, and not a few Repub
licans who are now opposing him say they
do so only because they "have to." Mc-
Lean is about fifty years old. Bulkeley.
if alive, will be more than eighty when
the term he aspires to is completed.
Bulkeley is an "oldtimer," both as to the
almanac and as to practices and policies.
The only time he made an independent
move Jn his six years in the Senate was
when he lined up with Fornker in his
Brownsville blunder, which was supposed
to have its foundation in their common
readiness to worry Roosevelt. He has the
advantage that goes along with holding of
fice, but he is relying for support chiefly
on the very elements in the party that he
has hitherto opposed. His principal
strength to-day lies where Fessenden used
to be strongest H«» has started off his
campaign for re-election on the assertion
that "the old man has never been beafn
and cannot be beaten now." The fact is that
this is political buncombe, for the state
has seen few politicians who have had
and survived so many beatings. He was
twice beaten by Hawley for the Senator
ship, though Hawley never spent $1,000
on a campaign. He was laughed out of
the St. Louis convention when he had a
band and a parade ets a candidate for the
Vice- Presidency. He d^tnandH a renoml
nation for Governor after the deadlock,
and his name was presented to the con
vention, but that body threw him out sum
marily and nominated General Samuel X
Merwln by acclamation amid cheers. Nor
has h* always been a pattern of regularity
in local politics. He organized a bolt
against Harbison, Republican nominee for
Mayor in 1900. and backed a much better
man, but he could not carry a single ward.
He did successfully engineer a bolt
against Francis H. Parker in 1594. who
was a Republican candidate for the State
Senate, electing John H. Hall, Democrat,
by the slim but adequate plurality of
about 350 in a total vote of more
than 10,500 He was Mayor of Hart
ford for eight years. Governor of the
state for two years and has been Sen
ator for six years. Some of the irreverent
say he has had enough. Colonel I'llman.

Formerly A. T. Stewart & Co., Broadway, Fourth avc, Eighth to Tenth sts.
are for McLean, and that is about a fair
measure of the sentiment of the state. J
Mr. Buikeley is not a purist. He is on
record as paying in effect that a man has
as much right to Bell his vote as his po
tatoes. How far this doctrine will go in
these more sensitive days is to be seen..
It manifestly has its risks. It Is a com
mon Baying that If the state had a pri
mary McLean would sweep Connecticut,
whether the vote were taken by towns or
statewlse. "That." say some of the most
active among "the boys." "is Just why we
don't want the damn thing"
McLean is an experienced politician, j
with a rare personal charm that attaches :
to him the men h» meets, and he is fortu- |
nate in such a campaign to have with him
many of the most influential among the
practical politicians of th» party. It Is
plainly a struggle of great forces, but it is
youth against age. progress against in
erti;r. the future against the past; and
though it is too early for any sort of a
count (only four members have been nom
inated bo far. and three of these are for
McLean), still it is noteworthy that those
who were so confident of Bulkeley's suc
cess a month ago are now talking in a
lower tone. It Is. perhaps, significant that
many of the leading newspapers of the
state are for McLean. Among these are
"The New Haven Register" and "The New
Haven Journal-Courier." "The Hartford
Courant," "The Waterbury Republican"
and "The Waterbury America^." "The An
sonia Sentinel, " "The Stamford Advocate."
"The Torrington Register" and "The
Lltchfleld Enquirer"
The Republican nomination for the gov
ernorship lies between comparatively
young men — Everett J. Lake. Harvard.
'92. and Charles A. Goodwin. Yale, '9s.
Lake got into politics backward and seems
never to have straightened out. He was
Lieutenant Governor under Governor
Woodruff in 1907-'O9, and when his term
ran out he was a candidate for the gov- '
ernorship. He was beaten out of his ;
boots then by George L. Lilley by a
vote of 402 to 133, or about 3 to 1. . His
friends say that's why he should be nom
inated now. His opponents say it is evi
dence that the state hag spoken already
and has said it doesn't want him. He is
a man of large means and notorious lib
erality, and a genial good fellow when he
feels that way. He calls politics a
"game," and he is making a desperate
fight for the coveted nomination. Good
win is a son of the leading citizen of
Hartford, a gentleman held in affectionate
esteem and gratitude throughout the city.
The young man was I.illev"s executive sec
retary and confidential friend, and sin.©
Lilly's death has held the same close re
lation to Governor Weeks, who succeeded
to the office and who declines to be a can- j
didate. .Lilley never forgave Lake for ,
what he believed to be disloyalty after the ;
convention, and Lilley's friends are the
foundation of Goodwin's strength. Good
win has had the opportunity of a whole
session at the State House in which to (
make friends of the njemhers, and it was
after finding how popular he was that his
friends made him get into the race. He
attracts all who meet him. and the next '
convention will include very largely the
members of the preceding Legislature. '
The town caucuses are already occurring-,
but not a quarter of them have been held,
and it is early to make predictions. Both .
sides profess full confidence and their
estimates of strength so far developed are
too far apart to be compared except for
purposes of sport.
The Republican State Convention comes :
in Hartford on September 13 and 14. The ;
Democrats meet in New Haven on Septem- i
ber 7 and 8. It is conceded that the H*_n.
Simeon E. Baldwin, of New Haven, former !
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, will j

In this state is that It has lost Ha hoUj
