GERMANY TO RENEW
PEACE OFFER TO CZAR,,
SAYS MDON PAPER
British Feel Sure Their
Eastern Ally Will Stand
Firm, Rejecting All of
the Kaiser's Tentative
LONDON, Aug. W.
Germany will renew Its offers of a BCpi.
rnle peace to lttlssln, according to tho
Daily Mall, hut the proposals will meet
tho same fate at tho others already made.
Tho Daily Malt says editorially that
Kussla's obvious self-interest, apart from
tho pledges to the Allies, will compel her
to reject tho offers.
Qermnn Influence has been tho curso
of Russia since tho days of Peter tho
Great, tho Mall declares. It Iwb been
tho curse of Russian society, as It hns
been tlio curso of tho Russian Govern
ment. "Russia's truo bent Is toward a kindly,
tolcrnnt democracy," It continues "tf
lt has been precnted It Is because of tho
German domination of commerce, Indus
try and tho governing circle. The Ger
man spirit and harsh, disciplined Itllbernl
lsm have stilled tho native genius of tho
RUSSIA FOR TIIR RUSSIANS
"Now tho Russians have determined to
bo nothing but Russian from tho top to
tho bottom, and to throw oft forever tho
German yoke. Until that Is achieved
nnd It can be achieved only bv rompleto
victory Russia will not hear of peace
"13ach nltled power has reasons of Its
own for taking tho sntno stand as Rus
sia. It Is their unnnlmous conIctlnn
thnt secure, civilized life Is Impossible
while Germany retains her prcccnt power
and present stnto of mind. Sho hm
mado herself an Intolerable neighbor.
and no terms of peaco, sho can over pro
pose will stnnd the smallest chance ot
being accepted. Sho has roused against
herself such a passion of detestation that
nothing ihort of her nbsolute overthrow
can satisfy those she challenged, no mat
ter how long It tnkes, whatever sacri
fices It entails. The Allies will persist
until n pcaco of their own working Is im
posed upon Germany."
Tho Times publishes tho following
Amsterdam dispatch, dated August 7:
"About two months ago tho CotoRno
concspondent of tho Tijd mado a rather
remarknblo prophecy. Ho said bo heard
from a responsible person that tho central
Powers, after freeing their own territory
from tho enemy nnd prosecuting tho war
on hostllo soil, would bo In a position to
mako known their views as to peace. Tho
circumstances would ho such as to ex
clude tho Idea that they would consent to
nn unfavorable conclusion of tho-wnr. but,
on the other hnnd, tho responsibility for
the continuance of tho war would test
with the Entente Power.
"It would nppear that the moment for
a press campaign on these lines Is con
sidered to have arrived. In its morning
edition yesterday tho Nleuwo Rotter
tlamscho Coin ant gnvo piomlnence to nn
nitlclo which attracted wide attention In
Holland. It stnted that It had received
this nrtlclo from a diplomatic sourco
tluough tho channel of ono of Its forclsn
cortespondents. It does not require Inuch
ncutencss to see that tho article Is of
WISER COUNCIL, MAY PREVAIL.
"The article says:
" 'It is Impossible to reach a conclu
sion on tlio battlefield; therefore wlsor
counsels may prevail nmon the billi"
crent peoples. If not among their Gov
ernments. " 'As to tho British, it Is not Impos
sible that they, whoso army and lleet are
unbeaten, will ultimately listen to tho
voice of reason. There Is no single rea
son why their opponents should offer con
ditions thnt would exclude a rapproache
ment nnd prolong tho war unduly.
" 'Tho chance, of nttnlniiiK ponce b ex
hausting the enemy is small, for nil tho
belligerents' general stnft everywhere de
sire to Impose upon the enemy a peace
which would mako lt Impossible for him
to resume hostilities for generations.
Thero la little chance of realizing this
" 'There Is far more probability of re
alizing the desire of the Socialists in alt
countries to negotiate for pence on the
basis thnt the victors will not annex peo
ples of n race and InnguaRo different
from their own, though such a basis
would, of course, need to tako account of
tho results achieved on the battlefield.
" 'These two claims ranv nppenr Ir
reconcilable, but It should bo remembered
that, apait from conquests In Europe,
there are many other means of restoring
a balance and providing compensation.' "
RIVAL ORANGE I,0D(!ES

From now on it Is to be war-moro bit

They nro going to carry tho battle Into

that $2,000 has already been appropriated

"wets" claim that they ore tho original

EUREKA! PIPE IN PARK
POOL FOUND AT LAST
Heroin Is Also Explained Why
'Skeeters Multiply and Work
men Had Hard Labor.
The work ot cleaning up nnd draining
tho .stagnant "skecter" pond In East
Falrmount Park Is proving to be a moro
dllllcult task than members of tho Park
Commission imagined. Although a gang
of laborers, under tho direction ot As
sistant Engineer Harry C. Thomas, has
been working constantly since last Fri
day, It Is expected that tho task will re
rpilro another two or three days before
:t is completed.
After cleaning up tho dead branches
and other refuse which had accumulated
In the pond, tho laborers began digging
to uncover the mjaterlous plpo which !s
r.upposed to drain tho waters Into tho
Schuylkill River. After damming back
some two or three feet of water which
ciAuod the long-lost opening to tlio pipe,
the workmen Dcgan to dig. One, two,
thieo feet were excavated, and still no
signs of tlie opening were found. As
sistant Engineer Thomas was puzzled.
"Dig some more," lie ordorcd. "We'll
And that bloomln' drain if wo have to
go tluoush to China to do it."
Tho workmen seized their picks and
shovels with icnewcd determination. And
then they dug! Tho mud tlcw. another
foot was excavated and another, but stilt
no sign ot tho pipe.
In the meantime, n crowd of curious
spectators had learned of tho mining
operations and dropped by from timo to
time to see how tho work progressed.
"I don't belicvo thero ever was a
pipe," said one. "It's nothing but a
pipe dream of tho Park Commission,
that's what lt Is."
"Well." said another, "If there is a
pipe, It shows what caro tho commission
has given It. Five feet ot mud so fur,
and maybe more, has been allowed to
accumulate over tho thing."
In tho meantime tho laborers continued
to dig. Fin.ills ono ot thorn gave a shout
of joy. Eureka! It was found. A pick
had struck tho metal grating of tho
clogged pipe, which hadn't seen tho light
of day for goodness knows how many
ears. . , .
Tho excavation, ns it now stands, is
some 7 feel squnro nnd about G feet deep.
Assistant Engineer Thomas Proposes
walling tho sides of tho hole and lotting
tho water pour Into It In the form of .i
miniature dam. It Is this task which is
expected to require two or three days.

FOR OLD ASSOCIATION
IN STRUGGLE FOR LIFE
Members Hope, Through
Co-operation, to Arrange
to Obtain Bond and Con
tinue in Business.
Members of tho old Philadelphia Jitney
Association began nn active canvass to
day to reorganize tho association in prep
aration for definite plans for filing bonds
and paying, license fees In order thnt they
may continue to do business after August
20, when Director Porter will enforce tho
Jitney ordinance, excepting tho clauso ap
plying to tho fare zones. Tlio commlltco,
led by Richard Costello, tho president of
tho old association, nnd Harry A. Sliretz,
of Oak Lane, succeeded In rounding up
many of tho operators nnd owners who
would consent to Join In the plan, and
they expect to hnvo about 400 men on
rolled within tlio next two or three days
Resides the task ot rounding up Jlt-
neymen who are anxious to won. ior ma
ond to co-opernto with tlio old associa
tion, members of tho Philadelphia asso
ciation were In conference with repre
sentatives of bonding companies, in
order that they could get tho Individual
bonds fci mombers of the organization.
Previous to jesterdny's conference with
Director Portor, when they were ndvlsed
through him by City Solicitor Ryan that
they could not Ale a blanket bond for a
Mini equal to yiOOO or 10,000 for cacti
member, arrangements had been made
with a company to furnish the associa
tion with such a "blanket" bond.
Tlio reorganizes today succeeded In
making niinngcmcnts whereby members
of tho Philadelphia Association may ob
tain Individual bond to tho nmount ot
$10,000 per car for ono year at a cost of
JIM. 'The bonding company ortercd to sell
bond for J10.000 for ns low a charge as
for a J2M0 bond. The special prlco of
JIM for tho bond will bo granted to mom
bers of tho Philadelphia Jitney Associa
tion only, nnd other individuals who pur
chaso bonds to continue In business after
August 20, will have to pay more than
$200 for them. They will also encounter
difficulty in obtaining bond at any price.
It Is said.
Tho cost, therefore, for men to contlnuo
in tho jitney business on the streets of
Philadelphia If members of tho reorgan
ized association, will bo $150 for a bond
for each car they operate, a license fro
of $50 to thq city for the privilege of
running nnd a license fee of $1 for ea"h
driver, exclusive of membership fee and
dues in tho Jitney association.
Tho Philadelphia Jitney Association re
organize plan to conduct the business
of the organization along tho most eco
nomical lines possible, so that the mem
bers will not be put to great expense be
sides those made compulsory by tho city
ordinance. New headquarters aro to be
opened at onco at 673 North Broad street,
and It Is planned to hold the first meet
ing of tho rcorgnnlzcrs thero tomorrow
nt noon. At that time dcllnite pinna for
organization will bo made regarding tho
arrangements for bonds and tho futuro
of tho Jitney business.
Just what steps George S. Winner,
president of the United Jitney Associ
ation, will take now that members of tho
Philadelphia Association have deserted
tho ranks of tho amalgamated organiza
tion. Is not known. His old Jitney Auto
Service Company was supposed to go out
of business when tho amalgamation took
place, and It was Bald In tho old olllce of
that concern that the Jitney Auto Service
no longer was in business there, but that
a taxlcab organization was.

RACING YACHT QUEEN
NOW MASS OF JUNK
Columbia, Conqueror of Liplon
Vessels, Sold for Metal and
Is Broken Up.
All tha remains of the yaehl Columbia,
International cup defender In 1S&0 nnd 1901,
and victor then over the Shamrock I nnd
Bhamrock II, Is a pile of Juhk. That Junk
was brought to Philadelphia Tuesday nhd
Is now In the Iron nnd metal yards of
the Henry A. Hitner's Sons Company,
pt Arnmlngo nnd Huntingdon Btrccts.
Tho Columbia, once the speediest tail
ing yacht on the water, was purchased
by Hltnor'H two weeks ngo and disman
tled before being brought to this city.
Uccnuso the whr has driven the value of
metal up, tho Junk Is quite valuablo now.
Hitner's purchased 100 tons of lead, At
tons of Rtccl nnd 30 tons ot bronze.
Richard Hltncr, who Is known as tho
"undertaker" of tho firm, because he
buys up old vessels to bo dismantled, do
clorefl that any ot tho fo-clgn nations
now nt war would bo glad to obtain tho
tnotal nnd that tho German Government,
especially, would pay a high prlco for lt,
If thero was any way of transporting It.
Tho Columbia, In tho days of Its great
est fame, was commanded by Captain
Charles Barr. Commodoro C. Oliver Iso
lln wns the owner. In the preliminary
try-out races against tho Defender nnd
other yachts sho was easily tho winner
and won tho tight to defend the cup
against Sir Thomas Llpton's yacht, Sham
Tho first race was on October 16, 1S99,
when the much-heratded Shamrock went
down to defeat at tho hands of tho Co
lumbia. Tlio same pcrformnnco was re
pented twice that week, on October 17 and
Two yenrs later. In 1901, a new Sham
rock, that wns as swift ns tho money
of Sir ThomnB could mako It, tried again
to humble tho Columbia, but without
bucccss. Tho Shamrock II went down to
defeat threo times In succession. Tho
llrst race wns on September 23, followed
by two more, October 3 nnd October t.
Tho Columbia wns built by tho Hcrro
sholTs nt Newport, II. I., at a cost of
$300,000. A great quantity ot motal wns
used In Its construction. Tho hull wns a
frame of steel, covered by Tobln bronze
metal. Tho keel was of lead and weighed
100 tons. Tho keel served as n ballast
and to right tho vessel when she careened
over In tho face of high winds.
