If Bmfth will resort to CoL Seward for duty, and .' Major Montant, Major Roosevelt, and Capt. ' Coster will report to Col. Appleton. Mmx The general scheme of the battle is that the fv western force Is supposed to be part of that of H& an enemy coming down the Hudson valley and f attacking this city by way of Iliogsurldge. Ills Mt only the advance guard, sent to foel for and find Mt-S- the guardians of the city, to tako possession of Mt proper avenues for tbe advance of more troops MmE. and to guard these, aud Anally to form tbe left ij flank of a force advancing upon Klngsbrldte. & In order that it shall play this part, tbe troops Mtfk forming tbls division will gather In the morning I V at Itiverdale station, on the Hudson River Hall f'3 road, and Col. Seward will begin his operations f. from the Intersection of IUvor and Itiverdale avenues at 10 o'clock. f," Col. Apploton's forces are to b the defend- ! era of the city.

Every Mi Infantry man will b provided with twenty MA rounds of blank ammunition, and there will b m- forty round for each of the batteries. Net until 4' the end of th mancauvres will either Mwh' commander know whether he ha won or Mai. lost the battle. When the final positions & axe takn a suramins; up will be made t and a decision rendered in favor of the com mander who has succeeded In getting the . greater number of men Into effective places. In Mm- the meantime the spectators will have had a mWff charming picture of military action worked out Mmi- before them with enough noise and bustle to MWs: make It stir their nerves. V Since th fleld of operations is so large It will Mm Si be impossible for any one persen to saeall tbe Mku. manoeuvres, but that part ot Broadway which F& overlook the parade ground 1 the best point MW from which to viw the spectacle. The battle Mm A operations will be confined to Van Cortlandt Mt' Park, and In all of that territory there la only i'' th parade ground which Is open and level MM"'. enough to admit of tho rapid evolutions of cav Mmi airy and artillery. Swamps and streams at Doth i? tbe northern and southern ends would prevent 1 any extensive movements of troops there, and ' the lake and the buffalo lncoure in the centre ; of the park are not to be Invaded. MM? The orders declare that Vault Hill and the ? ground lying between tbe two branches of k the New York and Putnam Kallroad and the B; Mosholu road are to be considered Impassable i. obstacles. It may therefore be assumed that v Mosholu bridge and tbe section about Van Cort- ; landt station will be Important strategic points ', about which the earlier operations will concen- trate, and that the final struggle will take place ;. about the paradeground.wbereafterward there ; will be a round-up of all tho troops and a parade BCF and rovlew at 3 P. M. ' For those who will follow TnE Sun's sugges- tlon and view tbe battle from Broadway, where , It overlooks the parade ground, the most con- . venlent route to their destination is by way of , the Sixth and Ninth avenue elevated railroads to 185th street, and thence by way of tbe New Mmf York and Putnam road to either van Cortlandt . or Mosbolu station. Trains leave 15Sth street J at 8:30. U, U:30, and 10 o'clock in the rooming, and tuke thirteen minutes to reach Van t'ort- ? landt itAtlon. Tho latest of these trains will V- bring tbe visitor to tho ground almost as soon as ' the troops will begin to manoeuvre, and even the train at 11:10 might take one there In time to see the wind-up on the parudo ground. j Those who wish to pco the men of their favor- ' It regiments as they arrive and perhaps also follow them through the battle should proceed ,. either by the Hurinon Hlvcr road or the Harlem f to Itiverdale, Woudlnmi, or WlIllamsbrldKe. - The Seventh will take a train at the Eighty- - sixth street station at H:f0 A.

The United States Beard of Genera Apprais ers has overruled the Treasury Department and bedded yesterday that the Dlngtey Tariff bill did not cover In It operations tho whole of th day upon which It wa signed by President Mo Klnlcy. 1 he Colloctor of Customs at Boston, ta whom the test case tried before tho board di rectly applied, Is Instructed to rellqufdate the entries of Stoddard, Masurtck, Itlcharilo & Co., tho Importers who appear In the case,Joasto accord with tbo board's decision. There are In all soventy-seven cases In which protests have been Hied, representing; entries made at various Custom Ilouses on th day the Tariff bill was signed. These involve botwesn $300,000 and $100,000 In duties. Tho case tried was a test case, brought on an ontry of wool, W. J. Gibson, counsel for tho Treasury Depart ment, argued before the board that the tariff took effect by rotation from the earliest moment of the day on which It was approved, while th counsel for tb importers argued that It took effect from the moment It was signed, Henderson M. Hoinervlllo wrote the decision of the board, which was handed down yester day, all tho board concurring, Tbe decision lays In part: 1. That the tariff aet ot July Si, 1807, did not be come opsratlr as a law until 0 mlautes afur 4 o'clock f. U. of said day when It was approved by the 1'mldftnt. 8. That It was not operative by relation on any previous hour of the day. but that ths tariff aut of Aug. 28, 18IU, remained unrepealed aud la fore until the precise moment whoa said aet ot July 114, 1887, waa approved. 8. That goods iraportad and entered for ooniump tlon In lbs foranoon of said July 114, 11)97 (or at any hour prior to th tlms of approTal of ial4 aot), would bs g OTerned aa to classification and rates of duty by tea Tariff act of 1BU4, and not by said act of 1897. Tb protests ars sustained In harmony with tb foregoing news, and the Oolleotor decision tn each casa la reversed, with lastruotlooa to rallquldate th entrlas accordingly. General Appraiser Somervlllo was formerly a Judge of the Supreme Court of Alabama, lie wrote the decision in the test case involving tho constitutionality of tho McKlnley tariff of 1800. as well as tbe decision upon tbe date of opera tion ot the Tariff act of 1804. These decisions were sustained when they llnally reached the United States Supreme Court. Lawyer Gibson, for the Treasury Department, will appeal from the decision of the board, and the case may be carried as far aa th United Slates Supreme Court. a jfEtr CAFvemy province. Two Xaailsk Friar Ran Hero to Fouad It Ileadauarter la the YTmU A new province ot tho Roman Cathollo Or der of Capuchins Is to be formed In this coun try. Fathers Flnnegan and Fiege, prominent members of the order, have Just arrived from Birmingham, England, bearing Instructions from the Most Rev. Fathor Bernard of Ander matt. Minister General of the order, to organ ize a new provlnco and eventually erect a mother house. Early this week these Capuchin friars went to Washington to pay their re spects to the Apostolla Delegate, Archbishop Murtlnelll, and to Baltimore to present a letter to Cardinal Gibbon. They returned yes ttrday to this city and ore at present at the home of the Capuchin friars in West Thirty llrtt street. Father Flnnegan explained that the new provlnco will be wholly for Americana, or at least for English-speaking people. There are, he said, two provinces of the Capuchin Order already In this country, hut both are German and work wholly among Gorman-speaking peo ple. He Is not yet certain whore the bead quarters will be. but Inclines to the opinion that a site will be found in or near Chicago. Father Flnnegan said that the money to erect tbe proposed monastery would have to bo raised In this country. Father Flnnegan is to speak for the first tlmo in this country at a uiocttng of temper anco soclotles in tbo Paullst Fathers' church next Sunday evening. Like all members of the Capuchin Order, Fathers Flnnegan and Flege have full beards, and wear long brown cassocks of rough ma terial, girded at the waist with a knotted rope. Around tho neck Is a bone rosary, from which Is suspended a crucifix, and attacbod to the back of the neck band of the cassock Is tho capuco or hood, from which the ordee takes Its name. While Indoors this hood Is allowed to hang down the back. In tbo street it Is used to almost completely cover the head. Sandals protect the feet. DENIALS BT MRS. BIIRADT.

Her maid loosened her clothes, and Gus unbuttoned her shoes. When she recovered abe went to her room unassisted. She said she bad gone to Borst's saloon several times and had drank with htm, but it was only in a social way, nd there was no ground for his evidence that hn had been Intimate with her or of his employees that she and Borst had sat on each other's laps and klased and hugged. She had first met Ilorst by calling at his saloon with Bertba Moses, "a respectable little woman who was under age" and who was known as " Birdie," Ou cross-examination by Mr. Hummel for Shrady she denied that while she was on the stage as Georglaua Mclnotte she had played In "The Baebful Venus." Mr. Hummel wanted to knowif she. had not been fined by Pollco Justice Klibreth for giving an Indecent exhibition In tbat play. The question was ruled out. Several witnesses then testified tbat Shrady had been about with a woman named Lillian Cole, whom he had Introduced as Mrs. Shrady. Tho case went over to Monday. UPSET jy POUO UKEEP.1IE.

The second day's conferenco ot the Prison As sociation, which is being held at 1S5 East Fif teenth street, was devoted to the discussion of "Prison Labor," Commissioner of Charities John II. Burtls of Kings county opened the dis cussion. He spoke of the effects of the consti tutional amendment which became operative six months ago, and which forbid tho isle of prison products to any but State and municipal lastltutlons. " When the amendment was first adopted," said Mr. Burtls, " those Interested In our State penal Institutions were in despair. It was thought that the great number ot prisoners who would be thrown out of employment would In crease the ratio ot Insanity. On the contrary, what seemed disaster has proved a blessing. We find that In six months the most remark able progress has been made at Sing Sing, Erie, Clinton, and Matteawau, Trade schools have been established and men are being fitted for useful lives. Moreover, the municipal and State Institutions, including the National Guard, are compelled to pay the market price for prison product.

Chlar Bonner to Visit Lab Cltlea to Learn How Ther L'a Tkalr Adjoining- Watar. President Sheffield, at a meeting ot the Fire Commissioners. Introduced, yesterday, a resolu tion that Fir Chief Bonner and an engineer be sent to Milwaukee and other lake cltlea to study the system in those towns of using water from the lakes at fires, with a view ot adopting something similar in this city. He said that, at Milwaukee, flroboats forced lake water through pipes laid In the street by at taching a hose to the end of ths plpo plavln, on a tire as much as 3.000 feat distant. H thought such a system of pipes in this city from th East and North rivers would render excellent service, especially In tbe downtown dry goods district, where hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of prooerty might be menaced by fir, and.
