I PieiilN. March 10 The Tsung-ll-Yamon has
I rerched a telegram from tho Chinese Minister

Ij Governments. M do Glors. Russian Minister to

I ' puts on record hor contention that tho contract

I' pre-existing engngcmoijfrwlth China.

I Intended in returning Italy's demand for
I a lease of San Muii Day. is regarded
as aggravating tho first offence. Inasmuch
as tho note was Inclosed in n red envolope,
nhlch en elopes are used in the case of trivial
communications. Sending the noto In this
manner was a bioach of diplomatio otiauotto.
Lospox. Blarch 10. In the IIouso of Com
mons to-day, Mr. Brodrlck, l'arllamontary
Foreign Secretary, said, in replying to Sir Ellis
Ashmead flartlett. that tho Oovornmont had
no information that tho protost on tho part of
Russia ag.iinst tho Newchwong loan had ac
tually been withdrawn, but ho had reason to
believe that It would not bo renowod.
The weakly papers that nro Issuod on Satur
day !" treat China as the cardinal question.
The ijwoifoi" will sy: "It Is coming rapidly
" to this, that Europo must ruako a serious
icrocment respecting spheres of Influence in
China, with well defined boundaries, or the
effort to provont a Eoneral war will be a failure.
We regret tho necessity deeply, for wo can
forceo the terrible strain on the resources of
Great Britain, which aro already somewhat
overtaxed, but wo can percalvo no other way
out ot tho impasse. Lord Charles Dorosford's
roller of keeping an opon door by reviving
China, and so obtaining a dominant influenco
at I'ekln. is impossible. Corpses never revive."
Tho Speaker says: "Wo aro primarily com
mitted to the opon door and the malntonanco
of the inteerity of China. Wo are also par
tlallr committed to approval ot the system of
spheres of influence which may dlslntoerate
China. Must wo not insist that Uio policy ot
partition co no further until the matter has
been discussed by a European conference?
Meanwhile It Is our duty to civilization to de
fend free trade by every means."
The Outlook, regarding partition ot some
kind as Inevitable, urges, before tho trouble
becomes irretriovablo, tho convening ot a con
ference of tho powers to agree to broad princi
ples on which tho partition ot China may be
pacifically effected. It suggests that The
Hacuo conference put aside academlo points
and deal with tho greatest menace to peaco,
namely, the international scramble In China,
Connecting the Muscat Incident with tho Far
Eastern question, tho Outlook romarks:
"Ot the five powers who havo established
themselves territorially in China only one.
England, has safeguarded hor seaway thereto
br strong places for supply and repair. Until
the others aro similarly equipped they must
be more or less at the mercy of England in tho
evenVof war." i
The Saturday Review will say that It Is glad
to recognize what might be called hesitating
firmness In the British Government's attitudo
toward Russia at Fekin. It adds that tho past
teaohea that Muscovite opposition is apt to
vanish when confronted with resolution, and.
once the Pokln authorities nro convinced that
England Is capablo of upholding her rights, tho
recognition of the Yang-tse-Klang Vnllqy as a
British sphore and the guaranteeing of tho In
teerity of a considerable proportion of the em
pire become objects capable ot easy attainment.
The newspaiiors horo are satisfied with Rus
sia's attitude. A majority of thorn congratulate
Lord Salisbury and say they boliovo that tho
British position in I'ekln must bo materially
strengthened tlieroby. At tho same time they
Ideprecato the disposition in certain quarters
to crow blatantly over Ilussla's supposed
humiliation.
The. Timet profers to regard whr; has haD
pened as a triumph for the paclflo and concili
atory elements of Russian statesmanship, and
above all as a practical expression of tho Czar's
personal determination to remove tho misun
derstandings which havo hitherto kept Russia
snd Great Britain apart.
The Standard says that tho amicable adjust
' ment justifies tho hope that a clear understand
ing can be reached in every other probablo dif
lerenee. The Daily Keirs says It Is as Idlo as offonslvo
totalkof Russia's climbing down. The Issuo
is a compromise, showing that tho Govern
ments aro actuated by a friendly desire to meet
halt way. It hopes that a similar understand
ing will be reached on other questions.
The Morniiw ist is among those inclined to
triumph over Russia's discomfiture. It says It
would not bo surprlsod If M. do Glors, the Rus
sian HlnlMer to China, was withdrawn llkoM.

Doubt About tho Congressman's Becoming
United States General ApnrnUer.
The Hon. Benjamin B. Odell. Jr.. Chairman
of the Republican Stnte Committee, and tho
Hon. Lemuel Ely Quite, Tresldent ot the Now
York Republican County Committee, had a
lone talk at Dclmonlco's last nlcht concerning
tho situation nt Albany. There Is no doubt
that there is friction at Albany concerning the
police and other bills, but In tho estimation ot
Mr. Odell and Mr. Qulcc things nlll come
arouncLriKht before the Legislature adjourns.
Over at the l'lfth Avenue Hotel Mr. Odell had
talks with National Committeeman Frederick
S. Gibbs and Police Commissioner Hess. Gov.
Roosevelt and Chairman Odell aro to dine to
night early, with a personal friend, and later
on In the evening they are toattend.wlth David
B. II11I. the dinner ot the Lotos Club to Senator
Chauncey M. Depow.
It was reported lost night that there is grave
doubt it the Hon. James H. Bherman. Repub
lican Congressman for the Twentr-flfth dis
trict of the Htate of New York. Is to accept the
place of United titates General Appraiser, to
which he was nominated by President McKln
ley. The nomination was confirmed by the
tyenatc. It was ascertained that (Senator Piatt
and other warm friends of Representative
Hbernian are In doubt as to whether he should
resign his place In Congress, to which he was
re-elected last fall, forithe reason that Benator
Piatt, Mr. Udell and other eminent Republi
cans from the Btato of New York bellevo that
Representative Bherman 1 too valuable a man
to lose In the halls of Congress.
A story has been started that in December
next, on the assembling of the Fifty-sixth Con
gress, a light will be made against Thomas B.
Reed for re-election for Hpealcer.'nnd that Rep
resentative Bherman will be the candidate of
the New Yorkers and ot other States against
Mr. Roed. Chairman Odell said last night that
there was no truth in the story. Bneaxer Reed,
according to the testimony of soven or eight
New York Congressmen. Is very much be
loved in Washington, notwithstanding his al
leged stern and drastic methods and cauatlo
wit. It would not be truthful, however, to
dlsguiso the fact that other New York Con
gressmen boliovo that Speaker Reed has ucted
strangely ever slnre tho St. Louis Convention
of IMHl. in a word, these Congressmen seem
to bellovo that Speaker Reed has been out of
kilter with the McKlnley Adm'lstratlon and
that he has allowed personal feeling i '.z'.?--forewlth
matters of crmo national Importance.
Still, nothing sorlous hascomo up at this
time. It was said, nnd all the friends of Speaker
Reed talked with last night sincerely hoped
that the pwcuedlngs ot the Fifty-sixth Con-
?:ress. which marks the first chapter in the
lepublican national fight next year, will give
solid evldencos ot unitv with which to confront
the Bryanlzed Democracy next year.

Merclmnt's Ilemnrkable Arrest In a Car
Signed n nelnnst) from Damages.
Frederick Snyder ot;:i:i(l Canal street, a man
ufacturer ol smokers' articles, was a prisoner
in tho Yorkvlllo Police Court yesterday on a
charge of trying to ride on a Lexington avenuo
cable car on a worthloss transfer ticket,
Wlientlie was'arralcned Burdette Orsor, a Met
ropolitan Railway Inspector, told Magistrate
Pool that he wanted to withdraw tho complaint.
"Wo have eonio to an nirangementand I do
not wish to make a complaint," said Orsor.
Tho Magistrate remarked that he would not
permit tho Inspector to charge a man with a
orlmo and withdraw the charge. When the
court ndhered to this decision Orsor declared
that Snyder gave to Conductor Carl Brunner
ot the Lexington avenue line on Thursday a
transfer ticket frsm the Flftv-nlnth street line
that had been iBsued on Fob. 21. After his
arrest he produced tho proper transfer ticket
from his overcoat pocket. ...
Snyder said that he was in tho habit of rid
ing on tho Metropolitan Street Railway lines
about twenty times a day nnd did not always
use the transfer tickets that were given to
him. He wan reading a newspaper Thursday
in the car and took a ticket from his pocket
and gave It to tho conductor without looking
at U carefully, thinking that ho had given the
transfer he had just received. Ho was arrest
ed before ho could muUo nny explanation or
hand over the proper ticket.
"This sort of nrrest is a most outrageous
treatment of reputnhle business men." said
the Magistrate. "It is a wrong without quail
llcatlou and I honorably discharge the pris
oner." , ,
Snyder was going awny when tho Magis
trate asked him what arrangement he had
made with the inspector ot the company.
"I havo signed n release of all claims for
damages for mv arrest against thocompanr."
replied Snyder. "My brother-U-law. ex
Judge Dlttcnhoofor. told mo I was a rool to
sign the release, but 1 havo already lost more
time than I can afford and I don't want to lose
any more," . , , , .
"You had good grounds for nn action against
the company," was the Magistrate's only comment,

ATTEMPT AT SUICIDE,
Albert I). Smith Takes Poison Soon After
lie la Questioned About the Cllrl-Pollca
Belters lie Knows More Than He Will
Tell, and That the Girl TlnsKltletl Herself.
No certain trace was found yosterday of tho
whereabouts of Miss Henrietta Weehsler. who
disappeared from the homo ot her father,
HamuelWeohslerot 113 Sixth avenue, Brook
lyn, on last Wednesday, and to further compli
cate tho mystery surrounding hor unaccount
nblo absonce, Albert D. Smith, a letter carrior
for the navy yard, with whom tho girl was well
acquainted, attempted to commit suicido yes
torday shortly after learning that his name was
to bo publicly connected with tho caso.
When ho was questioned nt 10 o'clock In tho
morning by a reporter concerning his rota
tions with tho missing young woman ho de
nied positively that ho knew anything ot hor
present whereabouts, and also that ho had mis
conducted himself in any way with her. Two
hours later ho drank carbollo acid and was
taken to a hospital in a precarious condition.
The polico and some otthe members of tho
Wechslor family bellove that his attempt upon
his lltfe is connected with Miss Wcchslor's dis
appearance. One of tho girl's brothers. Harry
Wechslor, believes that Smith knows whore she
is now or nt least why sho left her home. He
said yesterday tha his plater was altogether
too fond of Smt'.'r. aud that ho had chlded
her for showing hor affection to him. It
is also known that lor months Smith and
Miss Weehsler hnvo bcon mooting each
other two or three tlmos a woek at
tho Brooklyn Post Office. Smith Is n married
man. The Woohslers are Jews. Smith is not.
An attempt was mado last night to question
him concerning his act, but his eonditlon was
such that nothing definite could be obtained
from him. He tried to kill himsolf at Sands
and Hudson strcots, only a block from tho
Sands street gateot the navy yard. At 12:30
o'clock ho went Into a saloon on tho northwest
comer. No one noticed anything wrong In his
appearance. Ho went back to the lava
tory, where ho stayed but n moment. Then
ho came out and leanod on the luncheon coun
ter. Several pettr officers from tho ships were
in tho saloon. Smith know them. He started
to speak with thorn, but suddenly his legs gave
way and he foil to the floor. When the bnr
tendor reached him ho was unconscious. An
ambulance was called from tho. Homoeopathic
Hospital and he was taken thero. It was soon
found that carbolic acid was the poison usod.
Whether ho drank it bofore entering the sa
loon or in tho lavatory Is not know n.
Smith is 'M years old. He has bcon letter
carrier for the navy yard for twelve years. His
father held the post before him. Ho lives with
his wife and two children at ) North Elliott
place. He met Miss Weehsler three or four
years ago at her father's house. Thero was an
entertainment there. Ho and his wife wero on
terms of intimacy with the Wcehslors. Thoy
called occasionally nnd members of both fam
ilies went out together to the theatre, to
parties and on blcvclo rides. Mr. Weehsler
said yesterday that ho considered Smith a fit
associate for his daughtor. So far as ho know
they had nevorbeon out togothor unless with
a third person. He did not boliovo that his
daughtor loved Smith,. He did not boliove that
sho had misconducted herself with Smith. Ho
.did not boliovo that Smith's attempt at suicido
had any connection with his daughter's disap
pearance. "Mr. Smith was a gentleman," ho said.
"Although he was not a Jew ho went out
socially with a lot of our Jewish friends. He
always conducted himself properly so far aa I
know. For a tlmo ho won largo sums of money
on the racetrack, but recently he has been
losing heavily. Mr. Charles Rothschilds, a
friend of mlno, told me only last week that
Smith had threatened to kill himself on ac
count of his losses. He had mado this threat
so many times that no one believed him. but
I now think that his remorse over hie losses
has caused him to do this. Certainly I do not
think It had anything todo with my daughter."
Mr. Weehsler was asked by Capt. White of
the Sixth avenue polico station If he knew that
his daughter had been In the habit of meeting
Smith several times a woek nt the Post Office.
He said that she sometimes told the family
that she had met Smith while walking down
town, but this was not often. Before
Smith s "mpt nt suicido was known
by the Wecij!cr. Mrs. Weehsler told
Capt. White that her daughter often walked to
the Brooklyn Bridge on nlco nftemuoss. pass
ing through Washington street. Her explana
tion of these excursions was that they wero
for the young woman's health. No meutfon of
Smith was mado by hernt that tlmo.and It was
Insisted by the family that she had no intimato
mala friends.
Harry Weohsler. the oldest of Mr. Weehsler s
four sons, was the only member of tho family
who talked freely about the girl and Smith.
He said that two years ago ho noticed that his
sister was getting fond of Smith. At their
little parties sho showed him a strong prefer
ence, being always anxious to sit next to him
and in other ways Indicating her partiality for
him. Ho told hor that sho ought not to act so,
because Bmlth was married, but her fondness
for him oontlnued. She kept his photograph in
her room. Harry, however, declares thut his
sister never met Smith alono tohls knowlodgo.
When sho disappeared the four brothers
started out to try to find her among their
friends. They telegraphed to those whom
they could not visit. Walter, tho youngest
son, went to see Smith on Thursday. Smith
had npparontty heard ot Miss Wechsler's dis
appearance, for his first Question was, " Hare
you heard anything from Uttn?"
"That's what 1 came to ask you." Walter
says he answered.
Smith then told hlra. according to Waltor,
that he had not seen tho girl for two weeks.
If he said this ho told an untruth, for he ad
mitted yesterday that ho had seen her slnoo
that time. He told this ttrst to a reporter, who
learned from Chief Clerk Thornton of tho
Brooklyn Post Office that Smith and Miss
Weohsler had been In the habit of mooting at
the Post Office. Aooprdlug to Thornton they mot
thre so ofton as to causo comment among the
clorks. Miss Weehsler was known and surprise
was expressed that a girl ot such well-to-do
finrontugo should choose n lettor carrier for so
ntlmste a friend. They ofton, said Thornton,
walked up and down Inside tho Dulldlng talk
ing In a familiar way, Thornton told tun re
porter that ho Inst saw them together about
II o'clock on Wednesday morning. This Is
tho day Miss Weehsler disappeared. She came
in first and watted a few minutes: then Bmlth
came in. They had u long confidential talk
and then went out. ,
With this Information In his possession tho
reporter looked uii Smith, who denied that he
had mot tho girl on Wednesday. First ho said
that ho had last seen her on Monday. Thon ho
changed his mind and said that It was Satur
day. Ho admitted that he was her friend, ns ho
was a friend ot tho fain jly. and that ho had met
her as often as twice n week. Ho suid
ho did not know whoro the girl was
nnd that as soon as he lenrnod thnt she was
missing he went to her family and offered his
borvlces In trying to 11 nd hor This the fnmlly
denies. Ho also said that he Intended doing
all In his power to trace the girl. Two hours
later ho foil on the Uoor of tho Sands street
saloon.
Smith's wife told Harry Wechslor yesterday,
after the attempt at suicido by her husband,
that he had been out of sorts for n day or two.
When ho loft homo In the morning ho scorned
very nervous and was qultn pale. Later, she
told a reporter that sho belloved In her hus
band, Sho know nothing of any undue Inti
macy on his part with Miss Wechslor Sho had
known the girl and liked her. She said he did
not gamble more than the average man
and could assign no reason for his trying to
tako his II to Some of Smith's acquaintances
around tho navv ard said, howover, that he
was willing to bet on anything Ho bousted
once that Tie had "run n shoestring" up to
tl.000 and showed the money. Lately, they
said, ho had boon losing hoovily Ills pay as
lettor carrier was J 15 a weok
Last night Harry Wechslor went to tho Homoe
opathic HoHpltnl, bent on asking Smith where
his sister was, Ho said he thought Bmlth
knew. Ho was also going to ask him to ex
plain tho discrepancy In his stntomonts as to
when ho had last seen hor, but the hospital au
thorities would not allow him to talk with tho
patient. Cnpt White was ndmittod. howover.
and tried to got Smith to tell Smith
was then able to talk, and ho reaffirmed
Ws denial that he know the girl' wheroabout.
e also declared again that ho last saw her
on Saturday. Owing to his condition tho hos
pital authorities advised against his being ton
closely Questloued at that time. Capt. White
i
thinks thnt Smith knows moro than .ho has
told, and Intimated last night thnt hotnlght bo
shamming n part of his apparent Illness to
avoid severe examination.
, The polico bollov o now that the young woman
has done away with herself, Dotoctlveg from
tho proclnct In which sho lives nnd from Capt.
Reynolds's oflleo spont the daychnslng dues
without learning much. They learned this
much, howover, that Miss Weohsler, when
sho returned from her walk on Wednosday
morning, during which she Is supposed
to havo met Smith at tho Post Office,
desplto his dental, told her mother that
she had been down to the bridge over
tho cable car tracks on Montague street. She
had lived as a child In that neighborhood.
Sho went out again at 2 o'clock thatnfternoon,
saying thnt sho would try to walk off n severe
pain In hor head which had been troubling her
lor a day or two. Sho nevor came back nnd
tho detectives say they learned that n young
woman answering hor description was seen
walking on tho brtdgo thnt night nt 7 o'clock.
Miss Weehsler was rather strikingly dressed,
nnd might easily be Identified by doscrlpt on.
She worn a plaid check skirt and a greon velvet
waist. Sho had diamond screws In hor ears
andlrlngs on hor fingers amounting In value to
nboutl$500. She had a little change In her
pocket. She left hor wntch mid a $10 bill In her
room. 8ho took nothing with her that sho was
not lu tho habit ot taking on her walks.
The girl' father Inclines to tho theory that
her mind has become unbalanced. The pain
in her head ho takes to bo an Indication ot
mental trouble. Mrs. Weehsler Is broken
down. Sho held up until Inst night whan she
learned of Smith's act nnd the suspicions aris
ing therefrom. Thon she fainted.
Mr. Wochslcr was at one tlmo very wealthy.
He was a member of the old firm of Wechslor
i. Ahrnhnm. Ho Is now in tho cloak business
at OSU Fulton street.
