It con tained the following Una: "Call me up and I shall be drowned the time you find thla" The bottle was found by a fisherman yesterday afternoon. On breaking it open he read the notee and Immediately sent them to John Mertys. a fish dealer In Waahlngton, together with a letter explaining the details of their finding. Mr. Mertys turned the letters over to Acting Captain Vlather of the fourth ore cinct. who later gave them to Chief of Detectives Boardman. The police imme diately got into communlcatton with the parents of the boys. Went to Colonial Beach. At the home of H.

IN THE PUBLIC EYE New England Politics Com manding General Attention. SEPTEMBER ELECTIONS Vain* and Vermont Choose State Of ficers and Representatives. NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARIES ?" 1 y Factional Trouble? Imperil Republi can Succeea?Beriew of Condi tions?Liat of Nominees. Spuria! From a Staff Correspondent. BOSTON. August 30.?New England promises to fill the public eye for the next two weeks. Maine holds its election Sep tember 12, Vermont September 6, while New Hampshire will experience its first state-wide primary and direct nomination October 6. Massachusetts Is In the throes of a campaign for the selection of candi dates. Connecticut will nominate In Sep tember. Rhode Island is wondering wheth er Senator Aldrich Intends to quit or was only fooling, and. taken altogether, this neck of the woods promises to be right lively from now on. Maine, as I have tried to point out In dispatches from that state. Is decidedly doubtful. It is an even wager whether the democrats or republicans elect a gov ernor. Asher Hinds will probably be elected to Congress, but the odds are against the return of Swasey, republican, in the second district. New Hampshire is torn with factional dispute, the outcome of which cannot be estimated until after the primaries for the nomination of governor, which will be contested by the progressive republicans and the conservatives. Knifing of Factions Feared. Careful observers In New Hampshire are fearful that whichever side wins the other will knife the ticket, which Is a line prospect for the republican party. I will not ask you to take my word alone about New Hampshire, but will quote John L?oranee of the Boston Advertiser, who Is an authority on New England politics. After a tour of the states, he says: "Whether progressives triumph with Bass or regulars with Elite, each group admits all republicans will have to work as never before to elect their candidate, and that defeat Is practically certain if the other wing should triumph at the pri maries September 6. "It is not hard to And the cause. The dark outlook Is not due to dissatisfaction with national republican politics or even with republican management of the state government. It is conceded that not in a long time has the state had so capable and conscientious an executive as Oov. Qulnby. There has been progress, too, decided progress, in latter-day legisla tion. "The republican party has responded to demands of present day advanced repub lican thought. Drastic and strange laws have been put on the statute books. The cause provocative of party defeat Is found In the party Itaelf?intense faction alism. The republicans have split Into two wings, called progressive?Insur gent or Lincoln republicans?and the regulars, wtio are sometimes denomi nated machine men. The forces are about evenly divided, with perhaps the progres sives showing greater and greater strength, and each group hap had the other by the throat for the past four years. Different This Tsar. "The regulars have, as a rule, triumph ed. They have been able to control the elections; but tMs year it Is all different? the nominees will be named at the pri maries. It cannot be deciphered who will win. But if the regulars have won at the conventions, they have not been able to command the full party vote at the polls. Thousands of republicans have preferred to vote the democratic ticket. "In 190tk when Floyd defeated Churchill, and when the progressives claimed the nomination was stolen from Churchill, Floyd actually came out of the polls with out sufficient votes to elect him by the people. He had to be elected by the legis lature. Not in years had this taken place. In 1906, when Quinby ran, he defeated his democratic oponent by only 3,000 votes, and had only a majority of TOO votes over all candidates. The state wae carried by Taft at this election by 18,000. The vote for governor revealed large and disquiet ing Independent voting. The progressives were not voting the state republican tick et. For a presidential year Qulnby'a vote was extremely disappointing. "In other words, the progressive or antl-machlne agitation and (p-ope^anda has been making two or three democratic votes where it has been making one, and it has become now common belief that, since this propaganda is livelier and more aggressive ?han ever, nothing (but a de cided abandonment of factional lighting) can save the democrats from actually electing their candidate for governor this fall, and that, too, by a vote that will be a majority over all votes cast?in other words, a most decisive vote."

C ALDER AT CONFERENCE OVER HEW YORK CONVENTION. EepreaenUtive From Brooklyn in Washington, But Decline* to Discns*. Representative Caider of Brooklyn, on* of the few men who participated In the biff conference at Oyster Bay after Roosevelt had been turned dawn by the republican state committee in favor of Vice President Sherman for temporary chairman of the coming state convention, la in Washington today on departmental business for his constituents. Mr. Caider will not discuss New York politics for publication, but he was pres ent last night at a conference of the an tt-organisation republicans, snd this conference csne to the conclusion that the state convention will be controlled by ex-President Roosevelt by a two-thirds vote, the other third going to the organi sation men. The ex-President will be able to do whatever he wants in the wording of the platform and In the nom ination of candidates. Vice President Shermsn will not be named as temporary chairman, aa recommended by the state committee, and this honor will go to Mr. Roosevelt. It was finally determined at the con ference, composed of Roosevelt men, so far as New York politics is concerned, that the plan of the woodruff-Barnes men to nominate Roosevelt as the republican candidate for governor will not be per* m It ted to go through. Col. Roosevelt has told his friends that he would not accept the nomination, If unanimously given him. and that the convention must not be al lowed to name him. Mr. Caider does not think there Is the least doubt aa to the control of the state convention by the direct primaries men, led by Col. Roosevelt.

Lloyd of Mis souri, chairman of the democratic con gressional committee, has come to town, bringing the same cheerful strain of op timism that he invariably carries before a campaign. This time, he claims, that his Joy has a Arm foundation and that It will not be turned to disappointment on election day. "For the first time In several years,'* he said, "the democrats have substantial basis for hoping to elect a majority the House of Representatives I do not ex pect to see a political tidal wave, not a two to one or three to one victory, but X am firmly convinced that the democrats will have a working majority In the next House. The reports which I have re ceived from all sections of the country are exceptionally pleasing. In some sec tions, I am happy to say. republicans are showing more interest and concern for democratic success than the democrats themselves. Effects of Factional Disputes. "Insurgents appear to prefer democrats In Congress rather than 'standpatters.' and the 'standpatters' seem to feel that anybody Is better than an insurgent. With these two powerful factions of the republican party at war I would be dis consolate, Indeed, If I did not feel that the democrats were to make noteworthy gains. The entire republican organization has been weakened by this tight. Unlike past campaigns, there Is no probability that the warring factions will pull to gether on election day. Mr. Lloyd believes that In some locali ties democrats may vote for Insurgent candidates, but is of the opinion that they will be more than offset by the number of regular republicans who mill support the democratic nominees.

Claims of Bi^al Consuls. The complicated situation in New York, reaulting from the rival claims of M-wr.z and Estrada consuls, has been called to the attention of the State Department. Commercial Interests wanted to know which one of the consuls should tie rec ognised by them, and thought the State Department mlfcht solve the riddle. The response of the department was. however, that the authority of consuls was determined by the domestic laws of their country and not by the country to which they were accredited. The 1'nlted States, neverthelesa, haa recognised the right of Bolanos to certify invoices for shipments to that portion of Nicaragua under the control of the Estrada faction and of Strauss to shipments to the per* tion held by Madrls. Expected to Take Action. Now thst Madrls is out. tt Is beltawed that the State Department will soon take steps which will amount to the recogni tion of the right of Bolanos to certify tot the whole of the Central American re public. As soon as official notification of tM organisation of a responsible government by Estrada reaches Washington, thg State Department will take up for eoai federation the question of recognition of the Estrada government as the de facto power In Nicaragua. It is possible that dlpolmatle relations with Nicaragua may be resumed befoN the election of a constitutional president. mm FOR KOREA RUSSIAN PAPERS DISCUSS TUB TREATY OF ANNEXATION. Called "Historical Example" of Shameless Hypocrisy?Bitter Sar casm for Hermit Kingdom. ST. PETERSBURG. August SO.?The text of the treaty by which the Korean kingdom was annexed to the empire of Japan was published here today, and In the caae of the Novoe Vremya was ar oompanied by a bitterly aarrastic edl torlaj in which Korea is likened to an oyster which, about to be swallowed, treats with the gastronomer who al ready has "squeezed the lemon Juice upon It. The document, the paper says, con stitutes "an historical example of shame less hypocrisy." The jurisdictions! Im portance of the treaty is null, says the Novoe Vremya. Rescript Inconsistent. The emperor's rescript is less woeSv, but at gross variance with the publicity given to Korean affairs, earlier reports having pictured Korea, as flourishing un der Japaneae rule. The sole document of Importance in the official exchanges is the declaration whereby the consular courts are abollsh ed and the customs and the coasting trade rights made subject to abolition after ten years. Russia Indifferent. The Novoe Vremya adds that Russia's interests in the hermit kingdom are In significant, and for that reason Russian diplomacy will not raise its voice In pro test. The United States and Great Brit ain have been hard hit. In the opinion of the editor, who, however, concludes that as war is the sole means of annulling an accomplished fact, the situation will l>? accepted, for assuredly "nobody would r> to war with Korea."
