The testimony (produced to-day before the United States grand jury which is investigat ing: alleged violations of interstate com merce and anti-rebate laws, with par ticular reference to the Standard Oil company, was of such a nature that District Attorney Sullivan caused sev eral additional subpoenas to be issued later in the day for well-known Stand ard Oil officials. One was issued for M. S. Vilas, treasurer and auditor of the Standard Oil company of Ohio. A deputy marshal was dispatched post haste to the office of Mr. Vilas, but he was not found, the officer reporting that he believed that an attempt was being made to keep him under cover.

The special committee recently ap pointed by the Are commissioners to confer with ex-Mayor Hendrick about the proposed increase in insurance Kates In this city, held a long and earn est session last evening. The commit tee is composed of President Cunning ham. Chief Fanches and Commis sioner Pearce, and they went ovcer every detail of the question very thoroughly. The decision reached was that the increase would be a decided injustice and that conditions in this city war rant a decrease rather than an in crease of rates. The department has complied with every recommendation of the insurance Inspector. New and large hose has ibeen installed in the various houses. A greater number of hydrants have been set, twenty-eight new men have been added to the fire fighting force, two new houses built and equipped "with modern apparatus and eight new horses purchased. No city of New Haven's eize in New England or the United States can boast such a splendid fire department and in vigw of these facts the committee is ready with a most emphatic protest against any increase. The Insurance companies offer the excuse that the losses from the San Francisco disaster compel the raise and the committee replies that there Is no reason why New Haven should suffer ifor San Francisco's misfortune. The committee voted last night to Jnvlte the champer .of commerce and the business men's association to dis cuss the question. It is probable that these bodies -will enter protests.

GOVERNOR AT CAIP COLE ARRIVED LATE YESTERDAY AF TERNOON AT NIANTW. Another Mimic Battle Last Night Sec ond Moved Out From Cninp to Attack the Third Major Tllson Credited With Capturing a Gun After Theo retically Sacrificing Most of One of His Companies. Camp Cole, Niantlc, July 10. A thun der storm breaking while the Second infantry was mounting guard and the Third infantry "hiking" to Paine's farm, seven mles away, added spice to the experience .of the guardsmen In camp this afternoon. The rain was not welcome, as most of the men were tired out after their lively experience of last night and this morning in the mimic battle on the hills overlooking the camp, and Wanted to take life easy, as another strenuous night was ahead. The shower was so heavy that the regi mental ceremony had to be shortened and the soldiers scurried to cover. Late in the afternoon Governor Roberts ar rived in camp. To-night the Third will take its turn at bivouacing in the open. It left camp at 3 o'clock, with Major Bucklee in command of the advance guard. The prospects for a good night were poor. The Machine Gun battery went with the Third. Colonel Geddes at midnight will move his force out for the attack, and his dispositions are expected to be very good. Many interesting experiences are re lated of the morning fight, and that of Major Tllson's capture of a field gun is considered to be one of the best. The major was leading the main force on the attack and had tried Colonel Fitch's center. A field gun commanded a road, and down this G company, of Major Norton's support, had gone pell-mell, with, probably very serious results. Major Tilson; having his eye on the gun and a company of infantry supporting, sent Companies C and F down a paral lel wood road, while A company was deployed to the south. M company, of Torrington, went out to protect the flank- The field gun had been trained to the north of Major Tilson's position. Upon making a junction of F, C and M companies the order was given to carry a bridge and rush the battery. This was done with a cheer and the battery men hitched up to save the gun and be came tangled up with the supports. The retreat became a rout, as the "browns" swept up to a stone wall and Major Tllson claimed a victory. But the gunners rallied by their officers, made a stand and opened fire. Theo retically, the battery had been wiped out, although the Second had lost most of M company. The charge of F and C companies, of New Haven, was excit ing, and for a few minutes it nearly be came a personal encounter, The general Impression is that the de fense of Colonel Fitch was impregnable on the left, was weak in the center, but had a drawn fight on the right, al though Captain Ailing, of the browns, reached a fair position against consid erable odds. The battle was discussed and argued among both officers and men during the afternoon. Vote to Dismiss Woodlmry. New York, July 10.

New York, July 10 arry Kendall Thaw to-night in the Tombs prison gave out his first formal statement since lie shot and killed Stanford White on the Madison Square roof garden. In it the young man utters a protest against being regarded as insane. The statement follows: "I am informed by Mr. Olcott and Mr. Gruber that the interview with the latter in one of last evening's papers quoting him (Gruber) to the effect that I am insane and that a lunatic com mission will be appointed to determine that fact, has no foundation whatever; that Mr. Gruber never made such a statement and that no such course is contemplted. "Mr. Olcott further tells me that he did not go to Philadelphia for the pur pose of seeing or inquiring about Har riet Thaw or her alleged insanity; and that his visit had nothing whatever to do with the question of my mental con dition or that of any member of my family." Assistant District Attorney Garvan continued to-day vigorously to prose cute his inquiry into the case and had before him several prospective witness es. Among them were James L. Leder er of Philadelphia, who was manager of "The Wild Rose" theatrical company at the time Evelyn Nesbit, now Mrs. Thaw, was a member of the organiza tion; May Mackenzie, an actress and friend of Mrs. Thaw and Mary Leahy, Mrs. Thaw's maid. Mr. Lederer told the assistant district attorney that it was his belief that young Thaw was crazy. He ibased his opinion on the man's action during the time Miss Nes bit was a member of "The Wild Rose" company. Miss Mackenzie and the maid were questioned but briefly, being told to report again next week for a further examination. WILL RE A WITNESS Man Whom Thnw Took to Enrope. Will Tell All He Knows.

"Well, he was a good fellow, and If he had lived and could tell all the things he knew, it wouldn't look so rosy for Harry Thaw." "How do you know that Bedford knew all these things?" "Well, wasn't I there" "Did you know Stanford White?" "No. But T "heard of him at that time." , "I will ,go to New York," said Dorn, "and tell what I know and it won't take very long to do it, but it will be enough." LONG STRIKE NEAR END.

Serious Mutiny Among the Troops Forming the Garrison at Tambov News Held Up in Transmission Since Last S unci n j Mutineers and IiOyal Troops Have Pitched Battle Com manding Olilccr of Cavalry and u Sergeant Anions the Killed. St. Petersburg, July 10. Professor Paul M. Milukoff appears, from con versations with the Associated Press has had to-night with several leading members of parliament, to be the man on whom the constitutional democrats are uniting for premier in the event of a successful issue of the negotiations for the formation of a constitutional democratic ministry. Professor Mour- omtseff, president of the lower house of parliament and Ivan . Petrunkeviteh, the legal authority among the mem bers of the house, also are mentioned, but they are regarded with less favor, the latter on account of Emperor Nich olas' personal feeling against the too plain spoken Tver zemstvoist, and Pro fessor Mouromtseit because it is felt that he Is needed in his present place. The choice of Professor Milukoff is al so inspired by the desire to place a man who was excluded from parlia ment on a technicality triumphantly at the head of the government. M. Naboukoff, the leader of the con stitutional democrats in parliament, was most outspoken In favor of Pro fessor Milukoff, declaring that he was the most sensible and clearest headed statesman the, party could produce, and in every way fitted to assume the responsibilities of the premiership. M. Naboukoff intimated that the constitu tional democrats would lay no claim to the portfolios of war, navy and for eign affairs, which he regarded as within the Imperial prerogative; .but, like every constitutional democrat with whom the Associated Press talked, he insisted that no cabinet with a bureau cratic head was admissible. M. Anikln, a prominent member of the Group of Toil in parliament, has departed for London to attend the so cialist conference in connection with the Interparliamentary congress. MEETING AT TAMBOV.

New York, July 10. Not one of the executive officers of the Mutual Life Insurance company responsible for the conditions which prevailed in that or ganization prior to the year 1905 re main in the service of the companyj all practices and methods of doubtful propriety have been prohibited; the responsibility of officers has been def initely fixed; measures to Insure ef ficiency in service and economy in ad ministration have been : adopted, and many other reforms have been effect ed, according to a letter to the policy holders, which was made public to-day by Charles A.

After reading the statement made public by President Peabody ts-iilght, Samuel Untermyer, general counsel for the International policyholders' com mittee of the Mutual and New York Life Insurance companies, addressed a long letter of protest to Mr. Peabody. "My attention Is called," he says, "to a document just Issued by you in aid of the campaign for your own election, and that of your associates, to whom you owe your office. It is in the guise of a letter addressed to the policy holders, under the date of the Sid in stant, which you have had printed and just given out for publication, and yhich I understand you are about to mall to the policyholders, whose names appear on the lists you have prepared at the expense of the company, but which you still persist in withholding from the committee represented by me "while using them for your own pur poses. "We take issue with you as to every material fact contained in that docu ment." Mr, Untermeyer further says that it will cost upward of $16,000 of tha policyholders' money" to place this misleading statement in their hands, unless you propose personally to defray the cost. "I beg again to protest to you and through you to your board of directors against this continued waste of the pol icyholders' money, and to your persist ent efforts to mislead them as to the true- state of facts -with respect to their property, using their funds to accom plish the deception and entrench your self in office.

PREPARE TO HAKE WAR IMPOSSIBLE IN TIME OF PEACE IS SUGGESTED BY PRESIH ENT FA UNCE OFBllOWX At Last Night's Session of American In. stltute Spirit of International Arbi tration Must be Taught in Schools A Nobler Type of Heroism Than the Warrior is Depicted Greetings Brought From Great Britain Arts and Crafts in Schools Teachers Go to White City To-day. T The sessions of the American Instl- : tute of Instruction continued in Wool sey hall last evening before an appre ciative audience. The session opened with two selections by the Nevln In dies' quartette, which is made up of Miss Martha Springer, first soprano; Miss Anna Frances Treat, second so prano; Miss Bertha L. Hunle, first alto; Miss Grace E. Walker, second alto, and Miss Clara Jepson, accompanist ThGy were heartily applauded and responded to several encores. Miss Anna Frances Treat then favored the audience- with two solos, which were very much en Joyed. President Ranger, of the institute, . presided at the meeting and introduced William H. P. Faunce, president of Brown university, as1 the first speaker. His subject was "Educating the Peopla for International Arbitration." He said he was glad to bring greetings from Narragransett Bay to the American In stitute of Instruction, and congratulat ed the teachers on the coming of sum mer, which, he said, was the time of the teachers' opportunity to consider and discuss problems vital to our schools. He rejoiced at the tendency to establish summer schools for teachers, and commended the movement President Faunce said that he came to present a point of view, and that point of view was that whatever we want to introduce Into the life of a na tion must be first introduced into the schools. We must seek the develop ment of intellect and character in our boys. He did not suggest any more courses or any more teachers in cer- tain specified branches.' "I do not ad vocate the reform of human nature," he declared,, "but something simpler. I advocate the substitution of delibera tion for hastiness, of reason for force, of art for the brutality and stupidity of warfare." He then referred to the Mo honk conference and the gain of arbi tration principles in the United States ' with pleasure. ' V "In the last ten years," he continued, "there have been four wars those be tween, China and Japanbetween Eng land and the Boers, between Japan and: Russia, and that between America and Spain; but there have been scores of settlements by boards or arbitration. "In the last quarter century many of the stock arguments in favor, of war haye, been answered. There is the ar gument that .war increases a man's courage- So did the Baltimore fire, and ' the Galveston flood, and the San Fran cisco disaster. What examples of brotherly love and generosity and loy alty the last named disaster brought forth! But men do not Kindle fires on that account. "The old motto is continually taught us that in times of peace we should prepare for war. I would change that motto and teach in schools, 'In ttmee of , peace prepare to make war impossible.' "The argument has been advanced that international arbitration decrees cannot be enforced because there is no international army. There is no need of an army to enforce an international decree. Settling quarrels between Indl- ,, viduals by duels was in vogue some' years ago. The irrationality of this method has been proved. Duelling has become absurd. Is an international duel any less absurd? If the United States and Great Britain had gone to war over the boundary line between Canada and the United States (hey might have settled which was the stronger nation, but that would not have decided the boundary line. Thai Franco-Prussian war showed which na, tion was better prepared for war, but did not settle the boundary1 line. "Whatever is to enter the character of the nation must find expression In our schools. Let every settlement, be by an appeal to reason. Boys are doing' this in athletics through the umpire. The last time I was in this hall it was as a judge in a Yale-Harvard debate. I do not know whether the decision was satisfactory or not, but no one on either side would have thought of con- , testing the decision of the judges. And ' just so no college boy would think of questioning the decision of the umpire. "We must transfer these principle to schools and to international discussions. We must show the children that there is more than one kind of heroism, and that the great doors of history swing on great scientific and social movements, i Social changes and industrial develop ments interest us. - "I do not mean to disparage our great military heroes. We could not have done without our General Grant an our Dewey. I admire the heroic Japan ese soldiers and a Wellington, but they are not the only type of hero. I would have the children understand the hero Ism of a Jane Adams reaching after the submerged truth in the slums of Chi cago. I would have them understand the heroism of the city missionary worker. "As I entered this hall I saw the me morial of a Yale graduate who had but three years to spend In missionary work. I am glad that Yale selects that kind of heroes for her memorial tiblets and as an example to her boys. I pould have the schools inculcate the brother hood of man." (Continued from First Page-i '
