He was res-ued and wnB taken toClouvernour Hospital badly Injured It la bellovod that worrying fflB ' ort.r domestic difllcultlos weakened his mind. PB Hauser boarded a Third nvenuo trolloy car Iff at the Brooklyn end of the bridge at 4::0 jfi- o'clock. Ho eat in tho seat just behind the ) Biolorman and read n newspaper. As tho car reached tho New York tower he suddenly turned around and looked nt two women w ho -nere In tho next Beat, talking. 'Ihon. without a word, he jumped from tho car and startod to walk across the roadway, Ab a poltcomun was standing there, tho passougors of tho car thought that Hauler know tho bluecoat und was gttllnirolTto talk to him. He showed noovl donce of any excitement, but wont calmly pnBt the policeman and climbed up on tho railing. Then everybody gave u shout nnd tho polico man started on a run for him. W hen llau9er saw him coining ho jumped without waiting to balance himself properly. Ho turned over and over as he fell and struck the watoron his back. Tho ferryboat Southampton of tho Lone Isl and Railroad had loft Its dock at tho foot of New Chambers street but a few minutes before. The boat was almost under tho spot where Hauler jumped and ho did not miss her by more than six feet, l'rank I.lcky. the baggage porter at the James slip station of tho Lone Island road, saw Mauser strike tho water. Ho ran to tho bow of the- boat, pulled off his shoes and jumped into the river after him. Hauser had come to the eurfoco about twenty seconds after he hit the water. Ho was conscious and turned ovor on his back, striking I out feebly with his arms and trying 1 to keep afloat When Llcky approached I him. Hauser crabbed him around the neck II and both men camo near sinking. To froo I himself Llcky was forced to strike Hauser re- iil peate dly In the face. Hauser finally lost con- Ill tciouiness and released his hold. Then Lioky IJI swam uader tho overhang of the forryboat. iff which had corns to a standstlllyfind. holding H, Hauser with one arm. managed to keep his rjm head out of water while ho held on toonoof Mi tDe deolc traces with his other hand. Bororal H ropes were flung into tho water, and with one Pi of these Llcky made a noose and slipped it tinder Hauscr's arms. In the meantime the pilot of tho South ampton had been tooting the whistle for as sistance. The tugboat It. J. Moran of tho L'ahlll Towing Company came up and one of the deckhands, whoso name is said to be Oland, jumped Into the river to Licky's assist ance. The two men mado another ropo fast around Hauser. and the unconscious man was hauled up on board of the tug. Dr. Benjamin G Strong, the Coroners' physi cian of Long Island City, was on board of the Southampton. So was Policeman Qodland of the Seventy-fourth precinct. Both of them Jumped to the deck of the It. J. Moran, and Godland doclared that Hauser was under ar ret. Dr. Strong mado an examination of tho unconscious man. He found that the heart ac tion was very weak and that there was no per ceptible pulse. Ho also mado sure that Hauser was badly Injured Internally. Ho adminlsterod a hypodermlo Injection of strychnine and undor the stimulating influence of the drug Hauser i booh revived and save his name Ifo com plained of terrible pains in the back and right side, "I don't know what made mo do It," said Ilaner. " If anybody had told me half an hour ago that I would jump from tho bridge and that I would lio through it, I would hao told him that ho was crazy, lou see. I was in Brooklyn and I boarded the carat tho untranro ol the bridge. I finished rending my paper and then I noticed that there wore two women back of me who wore talking Oneofthera said that she would dearly love to see a man jump oft the bridge, and I just got up and did It I don't know why. I never realized what I was doing until I was flying through the air. I Tho time before I struck tho water was so i short that I did not experience any sensations. All I know Is that I am sorry that I did It, fori am la terrible pain now " I ho II J Moran put back to tho dock at the foot of Corlears street, and Hauser was taken J In an ambulance to the Dolnncov street sta- fl tlon There n charge of attempted suloldo was A putdown ngalnst him on tho blotter, and ho was thm transferred toGouverneur Hospital. t the hospital Hausor told a different story astowh) he jumped Heatilrst said that he had done It just for fun. Then ho admitted that he had been drinking a little, but pro tested that hen as not Intoxicated. Finally he said tliut he had jumped to ploaso a little girl , The little glri was talking to herfathor," said Hauser to l)r Hhleld. "and she said JJy, top, but 1 would liko to seo a man jump oil this bridge ' So 1 just up and jumped."

ICLIAS. New Survey Which (Jives Us About Thirty Allies of Canadian Territory. Ottawa, Out. Aug. 3.-The grant of about thirty n'lunre miles of Canadian torrltorv, near and upon Mount St. Kilos, to tho Unltod fltatos. was explained to-day by the Chlof Astrono mer of Canada, Mr. King, who, with Gen. Duf fleld, acting for the I'nited States, was empow ered to iniiko observations and gather neces sary data upon the proper delimitation of the boundary approaching the 1'acMo coast. They had nothing to do with determining the loca tion of tho 141st meridian, tho ofTlclal lino di viding Canada from Alaska. However, when tho necessary observations had been takon'lt was found that the 141st meridian struok the coast over the west shoul dor of Mount Bt. Lllas. Then. Bald Mr. King, when the Americans saw that the line would cut far below the summit on tho nest, they BticEostcd that it would do more convenient to tako tho apex of Mount St. Ellas as the initial starting point of the boundary line. This, said Mr. King, practically moved tho boundary twenty-fur statute miles further east, and If was agreed that the new boundary IIdo thus run should tap tho true meridian line twonti threo and a halt statute, ntles from Mount St. Ellas. This ngreemcnt.tsaid the Chief Astronomer, would givo the United Btates about thirty square miles of Canadian territoty and koep equally divided between the two countries the highest mountain In North America. JOUX VOX 1)1 It IS UOSP1TAU Tnlnts ln tho 'Wall Street Dlitrlct, Where Once He "V'm n Tower. John Pondlr, who more than twenty years ago was ono of Wall street's prominent bro kors and a power ln tho financial dlstrlot, fell in a faint at tne corner of New street and Ex chango place at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. His lip was cut by the fall. An ambulance took him to the Hudson Street Hospital. Am bulance Burgeon Dally diagnosed the case as weakness due to general debility, and laid that Mr. Pondlr ought to remain ln tho hospital for some time. Mr. l'ondlr Is 70 years old and lives at 147 Wost Ssvcntieth street. He wos once rated a millionaire. Tho proposition was made a few weoks ago by friends that a fund be raised to pension him. For some time he has been but one of the ghosts of Wall street who haunt the place of their former triumphs. He was a member of the eld Gold lloom and later of the New York Stock Exchange, l'ondlr launched the Sutro tunnol, designed tocut into and drain the Comstock lode, and got all his friends to buy stock in it. When Adolph Butio died Tondlr had a suit for about $1,000,000 against him, hen he was ln the Stock Exchange one of hU partners stole $100,000 and he filled, but sub sequently he made another fortune. He was one of the brokers of Trenor W. Park, President of the Panama Railroad, and on one occasion cot Into a tight place after Park had given orders to his brokers to tuko all Panama slock'at 120 and also all PaclQo Mall stock at a certain price James It. Keono is said to have learned of these buying orders and while Park was at home 111 raided both stocks, offering them in great blocks. Park's brokers, dismayed at the offerings, weakened, and tho price of Panama stock smashed down HO to 40 points and that of Pacific Mai! 15 to 10. Mr. Pondlr did not have much sleeo.that night, but Park camo to Wall street next day and made good nil losses. A peculiarity of Mr. Pondir was that he al ways called tho big mon of Wall streec, whom he knew. Including Commodore Vanderbllt, Collls P. Huntington. Charles WoerUhotTer and Frank Work, by their Christian names. He Is not a handsome man. It Is related that a man once said to him at Delmonloo's: "I say, Pondlr. I'll bet flOO you are the homeliest man In town." "I'll tako that bet." replied Mr. Pondlr. "but you must allow me two hours." Mr. Pondlr appeared two hours later with a younger man, at night of whom the bet was paid. 1 he other man was Mr. Pondlr's son. since dead. Another chaiaeterlstlo Wall street legend Is that once at the French ball Mr. Pondlr was roquested to "remove his mask." being gulltlessrof one. He had an attack of: vertigo about three woeks ago ln Exchange place, when some one nicked him up nnd senQhlm home Hlsoflice for tho last four or five years, until about three months ago, was In the Mills building. Lately helhus had a room ln the Lord's Court building. INFANTILIS PAItAr.TSlS. A Mnlndy ln Fotighkeepsle Thnt Is Puzzling the riiyitolnni. rouoiiKKEPsiK, Aug 3.

The report of the Balling yistcrdny of the cup challongor Shamrock and the steam yacht Erin, which will act as her convoy, was erroneous. Tho Shamrock, after leaving here, proceeded to Pal rile, as told In yestcrday'B despatches, and anchored in Falr llo Roads overnight. This morning thofwo vessels started for New York. As tho Sham rock moved down the river sho was lustily cheered by an enthusiastic crowd, which fin ished Ita demonstration by singing "Rule Britannia." All tho boats In tho river were decorated with flags, and tho blowing of whistles and sirens made n deafening uproar. Tho Shamrock had not proceeded far, how ever, before an accldeat to hor bowsprit com pelled her to return. Repairs were offectod as quickly an possible, and at 5:20 o'clock this evening tho challenger and tho Erin weighed anchors and resumed the v oyago Owing to the fact ot the delay and the lateness of tho hour thero was comparatively little enthusiasm as tho two yachts headed seaward. The weather was Hue and a favorablo easterly wind was blowing. Capt. Hogarth will tako the Shamrock over the southerly course nnd ex pects to reach Sandy Hook by tho end of the month. Tho boat will not be pressed on tho voyage. W hen lost seen she was carrying all her Jury sail. Sho hns in addition a large square sail, which will bo used whon running before the wind.

Tho greatest conlldenco is felt by Britons that the America's Cup Is virtually already In Sir Thomas Llpton's safe. The Shamrock Is insured at Lloyds for 40.000.

He has asked that he might be allowed to examine the firm's stock of 100 kronor notes, nnd has expressed doubt when counterfeits were show n to him that they were reallv bad after all. Mo has stated that he would like to bring a more expert man to ex amlneltliem The ovpert has appeared the next day. and after the notes have been handed to him to exatilnr. he has Introduced himself us Chief Hnzcn of the Secret Serv Ice and formally seized them. The counterfeits are descrlbel as the finest and most dtmnerous of n foreign note ever pro duced, and In their wny more dangerous even than the famous counterfeit $1(XXL nited States silver certificate that gave the Secret Service officers so rauih trouble last year Owing to the remarkable ability displayed ln the counterfeiting, the opinion was expressed by some of tho money brokers jesterday that the eounterfeitlnn wasj thn work lot some American counterfeiter. The notes are light bluo in color, the uhado ot the spurious notes living slightly darker than that of the gonulnn. The most Important difference Is the absence In the counterfeits of three small points upon the first ot u row of four crowns nn the upper left side of tho noto. beneath tho Swediah coat of arms This is an almost microscopic differ ence Tho numbers of the counterfeits, which nre of series "K." run up to 80,1.000, whllo none of the genuine notes of that scries 1b numbered above 83,000 Tho watermarked paper of the genuine notes Is also counter feited. So dangerous have the counterfoils been considered ln Sweden that the; Bwedish Government has called ln the entire Issue. It was renorted yesterday that a man be lieved to belong to the gang that has circu lated the oad notes hud been In tho custody of the United State Marshal at Jollet, 111., but had managed to escape.

MERCIER ASSERTS THAT It B WILL PltOVE TUB PRIBOSEll GVILTi: Hay Succeed ln Stopping the Rennets Trial and Forcing an Inquiry Into Alleged New Evidence The Count Minister Mury Kevlved-A Ilnsslan Attache's Recall. Spinal Cablt Dtipattktt it Tna Bux. Fatus, Aug. 3-The Intrantigeant publishes a statement which Gen. Merclerlssald to have made to a friend In which tho ex-Mlnlstor of War said: "Certainly Droyfus will bo con victed again. Either he Is guilty or I nm, and I shall prove him to ho the traitor." Tho revisionist organs assort that Gen. Mer cler Intends to declare at Renncs that Count Monster, tho German Ambassador to Tranco. showed him the proof of Droyfus's guilt, at the samo time saving that It Mercler published this evldcnco he (Manster) would deny It. The quostlon now bolng asked is, will Gen. Mercler succeed In prematurely stopping the Dreyfus court-martial at Rennes by producing what purports to bo now proofsof tho accused's guilt. The antl-Dreyfusltcs are very hopeful that he will. When questioned this ovenlng regarding the stories nbout Count Mtlnstcr. Gen. Mercler replied that ho would say nothing about this matter until ho appeared before tho court at Rennes. Tho story, by tho way. Is sotno months old, and Gen, Morcior's reported dramatic challenge. "You must choose betweon the word of a German diplomatist and a French ex-Mlnlstor of War," seems to havo boen re vived by tho Nationalists and othore in the desporato hope of turning the situation. Concerning this point tho Rennescorrespond ent of La J.tlrrti1 savs ho knows that the court-martial will in no wise dispose of tha case. Ho says that several witnesses besides Gen. Mercler will bring forward a number of new facts Iv ing outstdo tho scope of the court's jurisdiction, and the Judges will thoreforo bo compelled to stop tho case In order that a totally new inquiry may bo made Into theso fresh allegations. Upon the result w 111 dopend whether Dreyfus will bo arraigned for tha third ttmo. La .Itrrfe'says it learns that Gon. do Galllf fot. Minister of War, has released all tho mili tary witnesses who will testify at Rennes from professional socrecy. with the exception that they must not name French agents abrond or divulge anything concerning French foreign relations. London. Aug. 4, Tho Paris correspondent of the Sailu A'ncs. referring to tho recall ot I.leut.-Gen. Baron Fredericks, Military Attache of tho Russian Embassy, and his appointment to a post ln St. Peters burg, says that It Is undoubtedly con nected with tho Dreyfus case. In 1801 Drey fus incurred Gen. Frederick's dislike by testi fying against a Russian named Wladlmlroff. who was charged with the murder of a wealthy Parlsionne, Mme. Deda. Gen. Fredericks championed Wladlmlroff. and spoke ln tho harshest terms concerning Dreyfus. "It may be." adds the correspondent, "that he consequently judged Dreyfus harshly re garding tho War Office affair." A despatch from Paris to the CAroncJe sals that Major Marchand. the hero ot the Faahoda affair, has very Injudiciously chosen tho neigh borhood of Rennes fern round ot visits, thoreby certainly dlsobe) lng the spirit of tho Injunc tions he received from tho War Office. Ills movements were made known in advance to tho local Nationalists, who aro rapidly prepar ing ovations tor him. The Chronicle says it learns that ex-Major Estcrhazy, who is masquerading in London ns M. de Voillomort. was served on Thursday with a writ summoning him to appear beforo the court-martial at Rennes. Tho writ, which was issuod by Major Carrifirc, the Government prosecutor at tho trial, was accompanied by a safe-conduot Issued by the Government. The French authorities had considerable difficulty In finding Estorhazy's address The Farls correspondent of the Times, refer ring to the Mercler matter, recalls that Ger many Impressively denlod that any of her agonts or officials had relations with Dreyfus. The correspondent adds: "Everybody is awaro that if an attempt is made to involve Germany in the affair that country will consider such a proceeding a pre meditated Insult, and would Immediately ask foradisavowal Wo need not, therefore, fur ther hood tho Intentions attributed to Gen. Mnrcier unless It is part of a plHn of the General Staff, of which Gen Mer cler is tho unintelligent Instrument, to uso him for the purpose of obliging tho court-martial to bo held in camera In order to avoid tho possi ble complications that might arise from such n declaration as Gon. Mercler Is reported to con template making. " This method or throwing an air of mystery around a portion ot the proceedings would tend to vitiate the wholn trial by giving an oppor tunity for saying that as all is not known to tha public, the verdict remains uncortain and questionable," CZIR PLEASED WITH PEACE PLANS.
