Emperor Learns of Admiral Withoft's Death and Reverse. ST. PCTERSBURG. August 13, 2:03 p.m. --The gladness of the people at the an nouncement of the birth of the heir ap parent could not be fully shared at Peter hof. The emperor this morning received a telegram from Tsingchou announcing the death of Rear Admiral Withoft and the result of the sortie of the Russian war ships, as already cabled to the Associated Press, leaving no doubt of the severe char acter of the reverse sustained by the Port Arthur squadron. The contents of the telegram were telephoned to the admiralty and became quickly known throughout the city. The return of the majority of the Russian warships to Port Arthur has not softened the blow. On the contrary, it is felt that their re treat toward the beleaguered fortress has dashed the hopes of a juncture with the Vladivostok squadron. Naval men belfe-:e, however, that the Japanese were badly battered. and that Admiral Togo will rot be in a position to follow up his success. The Associated Press is able, on the high est authority, to deny the report that Ar gentine warships have been purchased by Russia and that they have joined the Vladivostok squadron. The admiralty strongly repudiates. the allegation that the battle ship Czarevitch is being repaired with German assistance. No such breach of neutrality is possible. ''he report is attributed at the admiralty to a Japanese source, the Japanese, it is added, hoping to offset it against their own flagrant violation of neutrality in the at tack on and capture of the Russian tor pedo boat destroyer Ryeshitelni at Chefoo. IN HONOR OF THE SON. Brilliant Assemblage Attended Te Deum in the Cathedral. The news of the death of Rear Admiral Wlthoft and the failure of the majority of the larger warships of the Port Arthtur squadron to break through the Japanese fleet was not known this morning when the brilliant array of officers and diplomatists assembled in the magnificent Kazan Ca thedral to attend the te deum in honor of the birth of the heir apparent. Alexis. The stately edIice, adorned with military and naval trophies, colors, eagles and keys of captured fortresses, was filled with am bassadors. generals. admirals and court and government functionaries. The Grand Duke Alexis, wearing the re splendent uniform of high admiral, occu pied the chief place as the godfather se lected by the emperor for his first-born son, as a special compliment to the much tried navy. The metropolitan read to the congrega tion the manifesto announcing the birth, and then the whole assemblage bended knee as the prelate invoked God's blessing on the future emperor. Veteran warriors were shaken with emotion, and many per sons wept and prayed audibly. "May the Almighty send him many years of happi ness." The congregation dispersed amid the sounds of bells ringing from all the churches. Similar services were held throughout the empire, the priest ini each case reading out the manifesto announcing the birth of the heir apparent. Mother and Child Doing Well. This mlorning's bulletin from the Alexan dra villa at Peterhof announces that the condition of the empress and the heir ap parent is very satisfactory. The United States was represented by Ambassador MdcCormick, Spencer F. Eddy. the secretary of the embassy; Lieut. Com mander Rtoy C. Smith. the naval attache. and ('apt. T. Bientley Mott, the military at tache. The emperor and empress have been flooded with congratulatory messages. in cludIng telegrams from all the crowned heads. Before he was twenty-four hours old the heIr apparent received hi.s first military honor, being made honorary colonel of the Finland Guards. The colonel of the regi ment later went to the Alexandra villa to salute his baby chief. The Finland Guards are so named because they took part in the war against the Swedes In Finland. The heir apparent is described as a strong. healthy baby. HAIL ADVENT ON HEIT. Congratulations Mark the Tone of the Entire 1Bassian Presg. WI'.

WAIVE SOME DEMAMDS1 Donnelly Ready to Make Oo cessions for Peace TO END THE DEADLOOK s BUT SEES NO PROSPECT PO TM MEDIATE SETTiEMrWT. d q Intervention of a Third Party-Fears' of Stock Yarda Paver Among Cattle. 9 CHICAGO. August 13.-President-Michael Donnelly of the butchers' orgailitktinh, ad mitting that he is ready to waive some of the demands that have caused the deadlock between employers and employes in the a stock yards strike, declared today that he ' does not believe there is any prospect of an I immediate settlement. A statement to this effect came from the t strike leader while a committee of retail t meat dealers was preparing to call on Mayor Harrison to intervene and settle the c strike. B "We are willing to accept the interven tion of the mayor or any third party, but t do not think the packers want any third party to intervene," said Mr. Donnelly. "Nor do I think the body of strikers would welcome such intervention." He was asked if he was willing to make any concessions should Mayor Harrison tender his offices as a mediator. In reply Mr. Donnelly said: "I think we would be willing to waive the clause upon which we first insisted, pro viding for the reinstatement of all men v within ten days and all the skilled men t within forty-eight hours. Such concession, t however. would' have to be made by the allied trades conference board." Fearing that stock yards fever would de- b velop to a serious extent among the thou- e sands of cattle that are held unusually long t at the stock yards since the strike began, the Department of Agriculture has intro duced Itself in the Chicago situation by a having a special investigation made. A re port on the situation has been prepared for the Secretary of Agriculture by S. F. Giles. who has conducted his culture work with a fever germs. -t "Acclimation of cattle and horses ship ped from one part of the country' to an other was found very difficult." said Mr. Giles today, "until the department dis covered the germicide by which fever in t cattle and horses can be preveited.' For- b tunately there is little cattle fever in 7 Chicago, and the purpose is not to let it A become a menace. Few realize the, great t importance of this work, not compre hending the almost' infinite number of p horses, cattle, sheep and hogs that may t become infected with diseases." c Settlement in Nebraska. President Donnelly today received tele graphic notification that a settlement had t been reached with the Nebraska Packing Company, Nebraska City, Neb., through I which over five hundred union men re turned to work after a lockout of more c than a month. Union recognition and other t pcints demanded by the union are said to s have been granted. The Nebraska Packing Company is one of the larger Independent concerns. 'The a resumption of work at this plant would in- s crease the independent union outpu: of c beef and provisions materially. s Seek Mayor's Intervention. The conference between the retail meat t dealers and Mayor Harrison, which will have for its object the securing of Mr. Har rison's intervention in the strike, has been postponed until Monday. Secretary Archi bald of the Meat Dealers' Association said c today that the postponemeht is not du8 to. t any new developments in the strike situa tion, and there was nothirg covert back of it. The change' of the time of the confer ence. Mr. Archibald said, was at the re- t quest of the mayor. The secretary Sa1d also that between now d and the conference time there, was no in tention on the part of the dealers to meet d either the packers or the strikers.. - t Women Led Angry Mob. t Women lead an angry mob which has stoned the house of Julia Kalich, fore woman in Armour & Co.'s plant. She had refused to join the strike. Many windows c were broken. When a patrol wagon ar- r rived the crowd fled. t c WILL CALL NO MORE STRIKES. a Building Trades Alliance in New York 1 Takes Action. NEW YORK, August 13.-It was an nounced today that the building trades'r the building trades lockout was declared, ( will call no more strikes, and will mi.ke no 1 more mores toward extending the. lock1out pending the termination of the suit corn-c menced in the Supreme Court to test the t validity of the general arbitration plan, I and the legality of the Building Trades I Employers' Association, which, it is claim ed by the unions, is an unlawful combina tion, operating in restraint of trade. BIOTOUS IN NEW YORK., Women and Children .Toin in Threaten ing Demonstra.tions. NEW YORK. August 13.-Women and 4 children today joined in the riotous dem onstration against non-union men who have taken the places of striking butchers and other employes in the packing htouses. From upper windows and roofs of buildings in the affected district they hurled missiles of all sorts at every luckless meat .truckc driver or beef carrier that passed along the street. After the demonstrations of yes- I terday the force of police .ssigned to the packing house district was largely increas ed today, but the attacks continued. The first act of violence came when Rich-( ard Sargent, a colored meat carrier, leftc the Schwarzschild & Sulzberger plant early in the forenoon. As he crossed the avenue he was surrounded- by a crowd of strikerst and hangers-on, and* in a moment he wasa vainly attempting to shield his head and (4 face from a rain of sticks, stones and ya- I rious other missiles which the mob, with 4 savage shouts, hurled at him, Sargent turned and ran down the avenue, pursued by most of the crowd, which con-c tinued to pelt him. A policeman who heard the negro's cries ran to his assistance. but he was powerless against the mob, which continued to as-c sail the strike breaker, and even directed some of their missiles upoin the policeman.g As the two men ran down the street wo- t men and children on the roofs on either I side hurled sticks and pieces of plastera torn from the roofs down upon them. Sar gent was badly cut about the face and hands when the appearance of several other policemen caused the Ulob to scatter. Donnelly Coming to New York. It was announced at union headquarters today that President Donnelly of the Amalgamated Association would arrive in New York next Tuesday to make a gen eral lnvestigation of the' situation here. It was said he would not take charge of the stribe in the city, but that he might take steps to bring about a ecombine 'be tween the strikers and the Uehwas.ekiM & Bulsberger Company which would be so etable to both ides.

August 13.-The foreign office era has not yet received any com munica lon from Russia on the subject of the lhefoo incident and has not taken any iction of her own initiative. Public opinion considers that the attack n the Ryeshitelni was a serious breach of he laws of neutrality, and there is little oubt that a similar view is held in official uarters, where the matter is deemed too elicate for discussion pending further de elopments.

August 13.-The correspondent fi the Evening News at Tsingchou cables hat he learned from an officer of the Rus ian battle ship Czarevitch that the Rus lan Port Arthur squadron met the Jap nese squadron twenty miles out. The flag hip Czarevitch was specially attacked and hanged her course for the Shantung penin ula. The Japanese followed and over auled her and the accompanying vessels If Shantung at 4:30 p.m. A two hours' rattle followed. Rear Admiral Withof!, rho was killed on board the Czarevitch, ras buried at sea. Torpedo Boat Sighted. TOKYO, August 13, 11 a.m.-The mer Want steamer Genkal sighted a Russian orpedo boat destroyer near Jigwei Island, if the coast of Korea, on the afternoon .f ugust 11. The Russian was steaming to he westward. The captain of the. Genkal repared to beach his ship, but the Russian tid not molest them. The Russian torpedo boat destroyer cvi. ently parted from the fleet during the bat ie of August 10 and was trying to return C. Port Arthur. The Knight Commander Case. LONDON, August 13.-The Russian re ly to the British representations in the ae of the British steamer Knight Coin nander, while upholding the validity of he sinking of the vessel, leaves the way pen for continued negotiations, which the oreign office here believes will lead to an djustmnent of the question. Great Britain s hopeful that the representations made y the United States in the case of the >ortland and Asiatic line steamer Arabia vilI have the effect of proving to Russia hat the American and British govern nents regard the sinking of the Knight Iommander and what constitutes contr-a and through the same spectacles. The Associated Press -understands that tussia has expressed her willingness not inly to revise the regulations, provided hey are accepted by Great Britain as bind. ng on her conduct in future wars, but to ermit the question of property, other rise than the destruction of the Knight !ommander, to he determined by the re lsed regulations. To some extent the Im ortance of the question is thought to be iminished by the scattering of the Port trthur squadron, Admiral Togo now being tble, it is believed, to send a sufficient 'orce to prevent the Vladivostok squadron 'rom repeating its raids. In connection with the question of In lemnity for the seizure and detention of 3ritish vessels, no agreement as to the mount of the compensation has yet been -eached between the two governments. tussia has signified her willingness to trant an adequate Indemnity to the own rs of the neutral cargo of the Knight ~ommander. If what are considered ex rbitant amounts are claimed in these ases the Russian government will sug est that they be submitted to The Hague rbitration tribunal or to a tribunal rnomi ated by the two powers. Cassini Beceives OffRcial Statement. BAR HARBOR, Maine, August 13.-Count lassini, the Russian ambassador, today re alved the following official statement from he Russian foreign office: "The Russian consul at Chefoo reports hat on the night of August 11-12 two Jap nese torpedo boats entered the port of Thefoo and attacked our torpedo boat tyeshitelni, which on the day before was Lismantled by agreement of the com nander with the Chinese naval authorities.

The superstitf j- that No. 13 is an Ilii islen has been forev* banished -from the minds of local oarsmen. This is August 13, but the aniual tegatta of the Potomac River Regatta Association, which began at L30 o'clock this afternoon, could not have been lnaTigurateii under better auspices. With a clear blue sky and a bracing au tumnal breese .the historic old Potomac seemed to hold her breath within her bosom, so smooth and unruffled was the course of the racers. Never has this hon ored stream upheld a more enthusiastic auditory, and with the blue of its water, the brighter blue of-the sky and tbe myriad duttering colors along her crowded shores., the scene beggars description. Suf 1ce it to say.if our forefathers could have risen from their restjng places in the near by hills of Arlington they would have re loiced. Prom the Aqueduct bridge east for a mile and a half there seemed to be an ndless throng -of rolling, restless craft, trom the tiny canoes with their fair oc eupants and elgborate furnishings, to the Launches, the sail boats, the barges and tugs, while here and there, like peasants mingling among princes, were the humble ind- paintless row boats. Altogether it was L day to be remnembered, a day given over [o one of the most picturesque of sports upon one of the grandest rivers in the zountry. Promptnes a Feature. Promptness was a feature of the pro gram. Everything was in readiness by 1 >'clock, when the press boat Georgetown shoved her nose into midstream from the Landing of the Potomac Boat Club, at the oot of 31st street. The steam launch Bar tholdi, having aboard the guests of the lub and the donors of the prizes, followed ilmost immediately. These two craft, with the Unitet States torpedo boat Tal ,ot, bearing the regatta officials and special guests, were - the only ones allowed the reedom of tly. river-during the afternoon. arbor Master= Sutton was on hand with the Vigilant to -asaist in keeping the course "lear of small boats and to be of assist ance in case oaetdent.

Time, 12 Cb ipioU Titus in Form. Officials 'wer ciTffident that the las! race would be completed by 6 o'clock. The most interesting svent of the day to all except ocalata.is thi ' race between Con stance A. Titus. formerly champion single sculler of America, and one of the most finisbed oarsmen in the world; Fred Shep ard f the Raven Wood Boat Club, New York, and- Fred Fuessel of the Harlem Rowing Club, also of New York. Experts have given the race to Titus, but friends of the other contestants were enthusiastic this afternoon, and promised that the former champion will have to let out an xtra stroke if he would Win the event. The visiting' crews competing today all arrived' yesterday. and were taken in charge by the reception committees of the Potomac Boat Club. Their racing craft were housed at the headquarters of the Potomac club, the club members having re moved all the canoes and other purely pleasure boats. A few of the visitors put their shells in the water last evening and took a practice spin over the course. This norning every one rested, that they might be the better prepared for the strenuous fternoon's 'work. The Arundel crews, from Baltimore, were the irst to man their boats yesterday. They were accompanied by their river neighbors, the Ariels. Mr. Titus pleased a throng of nthusiasts later in the evening when he took his shell out and warmed up for to ay's event. The Virginia Boat Club's gig was also out in the evening, giving its urew an opportunity to get acquainted with the course. The two Potomac eights took a short row down the river, but came in earl. The Analostan four and the mixed eight had an impromptu race, which resulted In an easy victory for the former. The local commnittee met last night at the Potomac boathouse and finished up all details, such as opening of entries, draw ing for positions, and the numerous other affairs that needed attention. The commit tee was somewhat disappointed at the small list-of entries; as they eXpected about dou ble the number- received; but they are con soling themselves with the fact that the National Association world's fair regatta had only a- dosen more than theirs, while they have eclipsed the Canadian Henley and the Long Jsland navy of rec'ent occur rence. The famous Vesper Club entered its in termediate eight-oared crew, and the entry was in the hands of Secretary Gasch, but on Thursday evening the club asked that It be returned. The only inference is that they believed the crews of the Ariels and Potomacs too speedy for theni, for on trial over the Schuyikill river on Wednesday they failed to Ishow- championship form, so Capt. Stone decided not to come. This is the only regrettable failure, as the Poto macs and Ariels were very anxious to measure blades with the Pennsylvana.

CONSTANTINOPLE, Friday. August 12. linlater- Leishman today saw Tewlik 'asha, Turkish minister of foreign affairs, nd renewed the urgent representatIons of he American government for an immediate ettlement of the demands regarding the ights of American citizens in Turkey. It is understood important developmerts re expected within a few hours, either the Orte giving way or Minister Leishman emanding his passports. After the interview with the minister 'ewfik Pasha proceeded immediately to he palace. CONSTANTINOPiE. August It--Yes erday's conference between Minister .iahman and Isset Pasha, secretary of he palace, and Nedjib Melhame. assistant inister of'ublic works-not Selim Pa ha, minister of mines, as cabled yester ay-occurred at Mr. Leishman's summer esidence at Therapia, and lasted eight ours, during which Isset Pasha exehang d communications with the palace. The act of sending a palace functionary un cequainted with the question to discuss he matter with Mr. Leishman is typical f Turkish methods. The sultan's ignoring of the proper chan el. namely, the porte. is much commented pn as evidently being an attempt to de ay a settlement. In the course of the iscussion the Turkish delegates attempt d to impugn the character of some of the chools, and contested the American claim n be granted certain privileges given to imilar French institutions. Mr. Leishman. however, firmly refused to onsider for a moment any suggestion of liscrimination, and inststed on a full ac eptance of the American list of about ]1.N chools, hospitals, charitable institutions nd missionary dwellings filed with the orte eighteen months ago. The American minister pointed out that the Porte had mple time to verify the list, but that it ad done nothing, and Mr. Leishman posi ively refused to listen to any suggestion egarding treatment differing from that ceorded to the schools. etc., under the rotection of other powers. The delegates nally left in order to report to the sultan, romising a favorable reply. The protracted conference appears to ave settled one of the matters agreed pn at the time of the Beirut incident. ut never executed, namely, the payment o an American citizen of Smyrna the sum f $25,000. being the value of land on which loslem refugees illegally settled. This mount will now be paid. The usual attempts were made to induce Ir. Leishman to stop the American squad. on from going to Smyrna by promising n immediate settlement, but the minister eclined to intervene, and he is now in ommunication with Rear Admiral Jewell egarding arrangements i the event of a upture and the consequent departure of he minister from Constantinople. Likely to Become Complicated. ST. PETERSBURG. August 13.-The lourse Gazette, commenting on the rela lons between the United States and Tur :ey, expresses the opinion that the sltua lon is likely to complicate the already omplicated task of preserving peace and uiet in the near east, declaring that this 'lew is shared by all thoughful people in tussia. The paper also alleges that the Lrmenians naturalized in the United States, or whom the United States government eeks greater privileges, constitute an ex remely faithless element in Turkey, thus Lccounting for the stubborn resistance of he porte.
