NEW YORK, September 21?Among ilie passengers who arrived today on . board the steamer Finance from Cristobal. Canal Zone, were Mrs. George W. Goethals, wife of the chief engineer of the canal, and son. , ? EMPIRE E t -By | FRANCIS (Copyright, 1907, b\ < X?Continued. f "We're blocked." was the brief an-; !. nouncement. "Two of the grain trains j $ are in. and the Transcontinental lawyers s have won the toss. We're enjoined by s the court from using the service tracks j to the elevators. Didn't your local peo- i f pie tell you?" I "No." said Ford. "T had given orders that I was not to be disturbed. But what ^ of it? Von expected something of the t sort, didn't you?" ; r "Yes. and I provided for it. The in- J junction will be dissolved when we have ^ our final hearing; but long before that : s time the mischief will be irreparable, I'm j i afraid." ! f "How?" y "It will be blazoned far and wide that we can't deliver the goods?that the op- t position has done us tip. I've tried to t keep it out of the newspapers, or rather. r to persuade them not to make too much ? of it. But it wouldn't go. The Transcontinental has all the pull in this town. It t appears." c "And you think it will affect the price ; J of t lie stock ?" I v "It is bound to. temporarily, at least, j ' And coming upon the heels ot today's ; i sudden tumble " j s "What's that?" demanded Ford, dry- f lipped, adding: "I haven't seen a paper 1 ?] since morning." : s Kenneth wagged his head gloomily. It's pretty bad. P. S.W. closed at thirty- i e three?five points off yesterday's market." i ' "Good Lord!" Ford's groan was that!? of a man smitten down (n the heat of the | 1: tight. "Say. Kenneth, within a single j sweep of the clock hands I have con- f tracted for more than a million dollars' r worth of material for the western ex- t tension?more than a million dollars' 1 worth!" a "Well. I'm afraid you have sinned in haste to repent at leisure." said the law- > ver. with a wcarv man's disregard f<ir 1 the amenities. Then he added: "I'm go- j v ing to bed. I've had about all 1 can ; p stand for one day." ' t Ford went to the room clerk for his key: reeled would he the better word. I since his brain was whirling. There was t a telegram in his box. and he tore it open with fresh and sharper misgivings. It p was from Adair. "The sick man's getting sicker. What 1: is the matter with your prescription? e Stock gone off five jioints and the bears t are squeezing us to beat the band. Stories il flying on the street that we are a kite t without an effective tail; that the courts s will keep us out of the elevators. What do you say?" v Ford consulted his watch. There was t barely time to catch the midnight train' o for New York, and his determination was taken on the spur of the moment. It was I all or nothing now. s Hastily writing a wire to the cashier r of the Denver bank where he kept his u personal account, and another to Adair, t and leaving brief notes for Kenneth and ? Truitt. he took a cab and had himself k driven at a gallop to the union station, v He was the last man through the plat- v form gates, but he made his train, and a was settling himself in the sleeper when another telegram was thrust Into his c hand. This was from Frisbie. at Saint's s Rest, and that it brought more bad news b might be argued from the way In which lie crushed it slowly in his hand and jammed it into his pocket. On this day. b if never before, he was proving the truth of the old adage that misfortunes do not r pomp cinfflv * 1'pon arriving in New York late the following evening lie had himself driven to t the Waldorf, where he found Adair wait- t ing for him. A few words sufficed to y outline the situation, which the lapse of another day had made still more des- b perate. So far from recovering, the fall- i Ing stock had dropped to twenty-nine 1 and a half, and there was every Indira- v tion that the bottom was not yet reached. \ "How do you account for it?" asked i Ford, when the dismal tale had been told. \ "Oh. it s easy enough when you knowhow." was the light-hearted rejoinder, t "As I wired you. there was something of a scramble on the floor of the exchange t last week when we were fighting to find a out whether we should control our own a majority or let the Transcontinental have c it. Our pool got its 51 per cent all right, but in the nature of things the enemy 1 stood as the next largest stockholder in b P. S.W., since they'd been buying right b and left against us. Now. since we don't t need any more, and nobody else wants it, i all the Transcontinental people have to do is to unload on the market and down c she goes." s Ford looked incredulous and then t wrathful. t "Adair, tell me, did I have to stop my work when my time is worth fifty dollars i a minute, and come all the way to New d York to tell you folks what to do?" he 1 demanded. Adair's laugh was utterly and absolute- t ly care free. "It looks that way, doesn't it? Have t you got the compelling club up your t sleeve, as usual?" j "A boy might carry it?and swing It, j too." was the disgusted answer. "When c does the board meet again? Or has it concluded to lie down in the harness?" e "Oh, it gets together every morning? i ant YliA mAPtinor hnhlt vAit Unnxr Wvprv- 1 body's In a blue funk, but wo still have t the daily round-up to swap funeral sta- ^ tistlcs." "All right. Meet me here in the morn- t) ing and we'll go and join the procession. Can you make it 9 o'clock?" t "Sure. It's too late to go home and r I'll stay here. Then you'll be measurably j certain that I can't escape. May 1 see 1 the tin end of the club?" f "No." said Ford, grumpily. "You don't 1 deserve It. Go to bed and store up a c head of steam thHt will carry you through r the hardest day's work yob ever hoped c to do. Good night." I They met again at the breakfast table c the following morning, and Ford talked t pointedly of everything save the P. S.W. ? predicament. One of Adair's past fads t had been the collecting of odd weapons; Ford discovered this and drew the young r man skillfully into a discussion of the medieval secrets of sword tempering. I "I've a bit of the old Damascus my- a self," said the engineer. "Tybee?he was r on the Joppa-Jerusalem road in the build- c ing?picked it up for me. Curious piece i of old steel; figured and flowered and \ etched and inlaid with silver. There were e jewels In the pommel once, I take It; the settings are still there to show where \ some practical-turned vandal dug them f out." r Adair was uuite at a loss to guess how t old swords and their histories could bear e upon the financial situation, but he was c coming to know Ford better. Some one 1 nas said wiai u is oniy ine smau men who are careful and troubled on the eve <! of a ureal battle. So the talk was of ancient weapons until the time for action r arrived; and a smooth-faced gentleman t sitting at a nearby table and marked ? down by Ford?though not by Ford's com- s panlon?listened for some word of enlight- t enment on the railroad situation, and f was cruelly disappointed. r "Whr wouldn't von talk'" nskorl AHnir r when they were driving down town In the young millionaire's auto. "Or rather, why did you persist in keeping me to the old swords?" Ford laughed. "For one reason, I enjoy the old swords ?as a relaxation. For another Mr. Jeffers Hawley, who was once one of the Transcontinental lawyers In Denver, was sitting just behind you, with eager ears. You didn't know that. Hold on a minute; tell your man to stop at the Chemical Bank. I want you to introduce me to the cashier." "Now. what the deuce are you starting a New York bank account for?" queried Adair, as they came out of the bank together and climbed into the tonneau of the waiting touring'car. "Couldn't you draw on the treasurer? What's the use of your being the assistant to the president. I'd like to know?" "Wait." was the answer, and the questioner waited, perforce. The bourd was already in session when GUILDERS | LYNDE Francis Lynde.) + kAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA he two young men were admitted to the >rivate room in tlie rear of the Broad itreet offices. and Ford was welcomed is a man who has recklessly steered the hip upon the rocks. There were even lome open recriminations, notably 011 the art of the president: but Ford sat quiety under them, making no defense, and biding and refolding a slip of paper in is fingers as lie listened. When they gave him leave to speak he dill made no attempt to explain. Intead he rose, walked to the other end of he table and tossed the bit of folded taper across to Mackie. the broker. '1 inherited a little money, and I have nade and saved enough more to make it 111 even twenty thousand dollars." he aid. "I don't know of any more promsing investment just now than Pacific Southwestern at twenty-nine and a half. iVill you be good enough to buy for my iccount. Mr. Mackie?" The effect was electrical. President "olbrith sat up very straight in his chair; wo or three of the anxious ones opened 11 Ford with a rapid fire of questions, mil Brewfster. the copper magnate, sat tack and chuckled softly in his beard. "No. gentlemen; iliere is no change In lie situation, so far as I know. Of nurse, -you are not so foolish as to let lie newspaper talk of the tie-up at the 'hieago elevators influence you." Ford as saying to t lie anxious inquirers. 'And. apart from that, everything is gong our way. As I have remarked, our tock at the present figure is good enough or nif. ana j oniy wisn i nan two nuuIred thousand, instead of twenty thousand. to put. into it." Brewster stopped chuckling long nought to hold up a finger to the broker. 'You may buy for my aerount, too, ilaekie. while you are at it?and keep on mying till I tell you to quit." This broke the deadlock instantly, and or a few minutes the board room was as loisy as the wheat pit with a corner hreatening. Brewster, still laughing in lis beard, pulled Ford out of the press it the broker's end of the table. "I'm going to ask only one thing of on, young man." he began, his shrewd Ittle eyes twinkling. "Just let me know vhen you are going to get out. so I can lull through without haying to take the lankruptey." . "I'll do it. Mr. Brewster." laughed Vrrd. "Only I'm not going to get out? inless you folks freeze me out." "Then it isn't a long bluff on your tart?" "It is and it isn't. We still stand to win f we liaye the ner\-e to hold on?in which vent P. S.W. at twenty-nine and a fracion is'a gold mine. That's one view of t. and the other is this?we've simply got o eorner our own stock if we expect to ell thirty millions additional bonds." "Well. I guess you've gone the right ray about it. But are you sure about hese Chicago terminals? A legal friend if mine here says you'll never get in." "He was possibly paid to say It." said ^ord. hotly. "There has never been a hadow of doubt touching our trackgge iglits on the C. P. and D. contracts, or ipon our ability to maintain them.

"Of course. I think we were all inlined to be a little short sighted and pesimistic here. Mr. Ford. When do you go iack- to your fighting ground?" "Tonight." "You won't wait to see what happen* lere?" "I don't need to. I am sure. And the ninutes?my minutes?are worth dollars o the company Just now." "Well, go in and win?only don't forget o give me that tip. You wouldn't want o see a man of my age going to the Kiorhouse." "One other word. Mr. Brewster." Ford legged, as the copper magnate was pointng for the door of escape. "Please don't et any of these timid gentlemen sell till ce get our bonds floated. You mark my vord?the temptation to make a big Idling is going to be very great within a veek." ? The copper king laughed, openl>* this ime. "You overrate my influence. Mr. Ford. >ut I'll do what 1 can?by word of mouth ind by example. You can count on me? is long as you let me stay on your side f the market." Ford had three several invitations fo uncheon after the meeting adjourned. iut he accepted none of them. To Adair le made the declination courteous while hey were trundling back to the Waldorf 11 the big touring car. "I have lost an entire day because I ould not take the time to secure a tenographer before leaving Chicago night >efore last. I must find one now and go o work." "All right, if you must. But I was hopng I could take you out to Overlook to linner this evening. Can't you corhe anylow and take a later train west?" "Don't tempt me." said Ford. And hen: "The ladies are quite well I hope?" "Oh, yes; they are in town today, and ve are all going to luncheon togetherhough I shan't know just where until 1 fo to the club. Failing the dinner, won't >ou make a knife and fork with us at 1 I'clock?" "I should like to?more than anything lse in the world." Ford protested, meanng it. "But you'll make my excuses to Urs. Adair, won't you? We've simply got o get a three-cornered hustle on now. If ve want to save the day in the west." "Why? Is there anything new in that luarter?" "There Is?something that I didn't dare o mention back yonder in the board neetlng. You may remember that I told ou I had left a man In my place on the 'lug Mountain?Frisble? I had a wire rom him night before last, Just as I was caving Chicago. As you know, the Paiflc Southwestern inherits, from the old larrow-gauge purchase, the right of way iver Plug pass and down ihe valley/of the annikin. Frisbie wires that the Trans ontinental people have begun massing milding material at the terminus of their Saguache branch, only twenty miles from he pass." "And that means??I'm lame on geogaphy." "It means that they'll out in ahead of is, if they can. Plug pass Is the only ivailgble unoccupied outlet through the nountalns for thirty or forty miles north >r south, and if we don't get our buildng force on the ground mighty suddenly, ve'll find it fortified and held by the nemy." The touring oar had turned into Broadvay and the traffic roar precluded urther talk. But when Ford was dlsnounting from the tonneau at the enrance to his hotel. Adair said: "There ippears to be no rest for the wicked. You >ught to have some of that thirty mil ion dollars to spend right now." Ford's smile was little more than a sarlonic grin. "Adair," he said. "I'm going to tell you lomething else that I didn't dare tell hose money-tremulous people in McVeigh ind Mackie's private office. I have been igning contracts and buying material by he trainload ever since the first grain shipment was started eastward on our nain line. Also, I've got my engineering orps mobilised, and it will take the field inder Frlsbie as its chief not later than omorrow. Putting one thing with anchor. I should say that we are somehlng over a fresh million of dollars on he wrong side of solvency for these litle antics of mine, and I'm adding to the leficlt by the hundred thousand every ;ime I can get a chance to dictate a etter." Adair lighted a cigarette and made a 'air show of taking it easily. But a monent later he was lifting his hat to wipe he perspiration from his forehead. "I*ord! but you have the confidence of ,'our convictions:" he said, breathing lard. "If we shouldn't happen to be able . o float the bonds-?" "We are in too deep to admit the 'if.' Hie bonds must be floated, and at the ?arliest possible moment that Magnus sill move in it. You wanted something lig enough to keep you interested. I iave been trying my best to accommodate ,'OU." Adair leaned forward and spoke to his chauffeur. The man watched his chances for room to turn in the crowded street. "Where are yon going?" asked Ford. "Back to McVeigh and Mackle's?where T can watch a ticker and go broke buying more Pacific Southwestern." was the reply, and just then the chauffeur found his opening and the big car whirled and plunged Into the down-town stream. In the financial news the next morning there was n half column or more devoted to the sudden and unaccountable flurry In Pacific Southwestern. Ford got it in the Pittsburg patters anil read it while the plcked-up stenographer t*as wrestling with his notes. After the drop in the stock, caused, in the estimation of the writer, by the company's sudden plunge Into railroad buying at wholesale, P. 8.W. had recovered with a hound, advancing rapidly In the closing hours of tlx.** ''" " *hn 1 r?ti-nc liirt ioa t ft f Aft V - *?it- un ? l i ''ill [lie i *' v* v t inu n' r *v two. with a strong demand. The utmost secrecy was maintained, but it was shrewdly suspected that one of the great companies, of which the Tactile Southwestern was now a competitor on an equal footing for the grain-carrying trade, had gone in to absorb the new factor in trans-Missouri traffic. Other and more sensational developments might b? expected if the battle should be fought to a finish. Then followed a brief history of the Pacific Southwestern, witli a somewhat garbled account of the late dash for a Chicago terminal, but lacking?as Ford remarked gratefully?any hint of the company's designs in the fai Midwest. "If Ad*ir and Brewsti - and the others only have the nerve to keep it up!" said Ford to himself. Then lie tossed the paper aside and dived onee more into the deep s?*a of extension building, working tlie picked-up stenographer until tiie young man was ready witli his resignation the moment the final letter was tiled for mailing in the Chicago station. (To be continued tomorrow.) GENERAL NEWS GATHERED ALONG THE RIVER FRONT The last cargo of ice of the season has been discharged hero by the fourmasted schooner Pendleton Sisters. The thousand or more tons she brought here have been deposited in the big ice storage house of the American Ice Company on the Wit street wharf. The vessel sailed in the latter part of last week for Baltimore, and Is loading coal for either Boston or Portland, at the option of the master of the schooner. Since the early part of Juno over .70.000 tons of ice from the Maine ice fields have been brought to this cfty by big coasting schooners. At one time during the summer eight vessels with ice aboard were in port here at one time, and two or three weeks were required to unload these vessels. The local ice storage plants are well filled with ice for consumption this fall and winter, and there is absolutely no danger of any shortage, in tlie Ice supply for several months to come. At the lee-unloading piers of the American Ice Company the machinery used in the unloading of vessels is being put in shape for several months of idleness, and belting and the easily detachable parts of the machinery are being removed and stored until next summer, when they will again he wanted. The bugeye I-evln Woolford, Capt. Jenkins. which has been running to this city from points along the river with cargoes of cord wood and lumber aboard for several months past, is at the upper end of Mattox creek discharging a cargo of oyster shells from this city. The vessel has made her last visit to this city until next spring, and during this fall and winter will be employed In oyster dredging work. The mainmast of the vessel, which had become weak, is being strengthened and other work is being done to the vessel to prepare her for dredging work. Arrived: Schooner Isaac Solomon, cord wood from a river point for the dealers; schooner S. Bowen, lumber from a Potomac point: scor Farmers' Friend, poplar logs to Alexandria for shipment to a northern point; schooner T. L. Dawson, oysters in the shell from the lower Potomac beds; schooner Silver Star, cord wood from a river point; sloop Volunteer, oysters from the Wicomico river; tug Meade with a tow of sand and travel laden lighters from Potomac points: schooner S. L. Bowen, cord wood from a down-river point. Sailed: Sloop Lily P? Owens, light, for the lower Potomac on a fishing trip; tug James O. Carter, with a tow of soft-coalladen lighters for Indian Head; schooner Hanson P. Barnes, light, for a Potomacpoint to load; tug Rosalie, with a tow of lighters for Piscatawav creek: schooner Grace G. Bennett, light, for Newbern. N. C.. to load lumber for this city; tug Fortuna. with a tow of light barges; bargest Vincent McNallv and Severn, light, for the Rappahannock river to load for Philadelphia or New York. Memoranda: Schooner Beulali Land, from the 8evern river for Alexandria with glass-making sand aboard, is in the river below Alexandria; schooner Bessie Reed is bound to this city with canned goods aboard; schooner Mabel and Ruth, with lumber for this city, sailed from Newborn, N. C., the 17th instant; schooner Salisbury, laden with lumber, sailed from Jacksonville. Fla.. the tilth instant; tug M. M. Davis lias arrived at Baltimore with the schooner Pendleton Sisters, light, from this city. The Southern Transportation Company tug Southern will arrive here today tow ing the coal-laden barges Nansemond and William Donaldson from Baltimore and the barge Susquehanna from Philadelphia. The barges have aboard about TOO tons of hard coal each. The four-masted schooner Salisbury, which in coming here with a cargo of southern pine, was loaded and ready to sail from Jacksonville in the middle of last week, but in consequence of a heavy northeaster, which had been blowing on the coast for several days, she was tinable to get away from the southern port until Saturday last. For several days a heavy pall of smoke has overhung the Potomac from this city to Its mouth. While it has not been heavy nough to give the steamboat men and sailing-vessel masters any serious trouble, it has kept them anxious for fear that it would shut in thick. Yesterday the smoke pall was heavier than it has been any day yet, and with It was combined considerable fog. The combination was thick enough to eut off all view of the river banks, but the pilots were able to see a hundred or more feet ahead on the wat#r. so that there was no necessity for the slowing down of the steamers, and they were able to move on their regular schedules. Fog time, it is stated, is at hand on the Potomac, and should a spell of foggy weather come while the smoke is here the steamboat men fear that the combination is one that would force the tying up of the steamers at the wharves until conditions improved. It is stated that the smoke pall covers not only the Potomac, but Chesapeake bay and its many navigable tributaries as well. mTTTWtW TXTTUreTT T AAA TV XlJUi^AiAM A**-********** MVAAAl* Persuaded to Remain in Scotland for Another Month's Rest. Special niapatoh to The Star. COLUMBIA. 8. C., September 21.?The Impression that seems to have prevailed over the state for some time that Senator Tillman would have to be a passive flprure In politics upon his return from his European trip Is .entirely without foundation, according to Dr. J. W. Rabcock. who has Just returned to Columbia, after spending four months with the senator abroad. Dr. Babeock says the senator recognizes. as be should have done years ago, his limitations, and will not go like a steam engine hereafter, but he will get right into the political game upon his return. He has practically fully recovered. The doctor declares it was all he could do to prevent the senator's returning to take part in the presidential campaign for Bryan. The senator will remain a month longer in Scotland. China Gazette Editor to Stand Trial. Special Cablegram to The Star. SHANGHAI.

All Russia is in fright because of rholer.i. The plague. firm reported this tear about tbo end of July, is of virulent type and the percentage of motallty is high. The disease spread rapidly into the provinces along the Volga, down both coasts of the Caspian and in the territory of the pon Cossacks: in other words, in the eastern and southeastern districts of European Rus#>ia. Ry the end of August there was an average of 1.30ft cases reported each week, with a mortality of upward of .V) per cent. Advices from all parts of Russia show that alarm Is general and that there is good reason for it. At Moscow a quarantine has been established at all railway depots and passengers are placed under the strictest surveillance. Up to the present Moscow has been Immune. A death has occurred at Helsingfors from tiie disease, and ten Russian steamers have been denied entrance to Viborg harbor for evading quarantine at Trangsund. a roadstead eight miles from that port. Several suspicious ea/?es have been reported in the Finnish archipelago, where the imperial family is cruising. Measures have lieen taken to limit navigation, only vessels having a practising physician on board being permitted to sail in Finnish waters. , St. Petersburg Terror-Stricken. ST. PETERSBFRG. September 21?The cholera epidemic is making steady headway in the Russian capital. The number of new cases yesterday was 39tk the highest on record. The number of deaths also is above that of all previous reports, reaching 132. The population is terror-stricken at the rapid spread of the disease. Two persons stricken with the disease died yesterday within fifteen minutes of showing the first symptoms. Fear lias taken possession of the entire population. Turn Schools Into Hospitals. The sum of 500,000 rubles was voted at yesterday's meeting of tlie municipality to provide additional hospital spate and for the distribution of disinfectants. Several public schools have been turned into temporary hospitals, and tlie minister of war has giveti orders to send field kitchens to the quarters most affected by the disease. The problem of disposing of tlie bodies of the dead is causing the authorities serious trouble. Yesterday and today are holidays. In view of past experience they may be expected to bring a considerably larger return of eases. Another serious feature is the impossibility of inducing grave diggers to work during the holiday period, so that by Tuesday, to take a moderate figure, there jit t a a 1. .mA win Of Ufiwctfii iuur anu uvc iiuiiuicu bodies awaiting burial. Twenty-three men have been added to tlie usual staff of grave diggers, which is still insufficient. M. Masloflf. a member of the duma, who superintends burials, came into the city yesterday to induce the mayor to ask that soldiers be placed at the disposal of the authorities for the purpose of digging graves, as corpses awaiting burial are as many as can be housed. Two mortuary chapels were also demanded by the deputy. Asked what he would do in the event of a large increase in the number of deaths. say to five hundred daily, M Malaaoff said he would have to bury the bodies wholesale in trenches. This helplessness does not apply only to cemetery arrangements. but to all branches of hospital accommodation as well. Premier Criticises Hospitals. The insanitary state of thfe hospitals was the subject of sharp criticism by the premier, M. Stolypin, who visited Obuchoflf Hospital. Three times as many deaths have occurred in this institution as in any other hospital. Several of ths nurses there have caught the disease The necessary medicines for the treatment of patients are lacking. M. Stolypin called attention to the fact' that for three hundred sufferers there were only three bathrooms. The sanitary condition of the entire city is the worst possible. The market places reck with tilth and noxious odors, and the epidemic thus spreads with terrible rapidity. Manila's Condition Better. MANILA, September 21.?In the course of a house-to-house inspection, made by the police in co-ope- Mion with the health authorities, twenty-one cases of cholera were revealed today, making a total of fifty-seven for the last twelve hours. This is considered encouraging. Should it be found impossible to eradicate the disease before the arrival of Admiral Sperry's fleet, the Secretary of the Navy will be requested to order target practice for the fleet in Manila bay, thus allowing additional time for the antichoiera campaign. The 6ivil commission summoned in special session by Gov. Gen. Smith to deal with the cholera today decided to order two hundred members of ti.e constabulary into the oily to assist the health inspectors in their campaign against the plague. The constabulary was instructed to furnish an additional force if the situation demands their presence. Tt was decided to discourage as fast as possible gatherings of the people and to refuse permits for fiestas and like celebrations. Additional persons and more nurses have volunteered for service and have tone to the cholera hospital, where equip ment has been provided for one hundred additional patients. Alfred McVeigh. a government employe, and Joserina flail, an infant, were the only Americans reported attacked by cholera yesterday. C. A. Davis, numbered among the stricken Saturday last, is now discovered not to be suffering from the plague. Twenty-five new cases were reported between ? o'clock this morning and 2 O'clock this afternoon. The members of ('amp Lawton. veterans of the Spanish war and the island Insurrection. have volunteered in a body a* sanitary inspectors.
