Wild Uproar in French Chamber Followed by Bloody Duel Over the Dreyfus Case. MINISTERS ACT AS SECONDS UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE IS SERIOUSLY WOUNDED. M. Pugllesti-Coutl, Who Opposed the Rehabilitation of Dreyfus, Strtick In the Face by M. Snrraut but Gets Sat Isfaotlon Later by Piercing; Snrrnut's Lnng With His Sword Chamber and Senate Vote Overwhelming for the Bills Restoring Doth Dreyfus and Picqart Also Vote to Remove Zola's Remains to the Pantheon. Paris, July 13. The scene of tumul tuous disorder which marked the enactment to-day of the law restoring Alfred Dreyfus to the army was fol lowed by a bloody duel to-night in which Under Secretary of State Sar raut was dangerously wounded by the sward of M. Pugliesi-Coniti. The duel assumed the aspect of a veritable com bat between the government and the opposition, as M. Sarraut's seconds were Ministers Clemenceau and Thom son, while M. Pugliesi-Oonti's were M. Millevoye and General Jacquet, who were drawn from the elements which bitterly resist the government's reha bilitation of Dreyfus.. The meeting followed a fight on the floor of the chamber of deputies,' in which M. iSarraut sprang from beside Minister of the Interior Clemenceau, sitting on the ministerial benches, on M. Pugliosi-Oontt, who had been heap ing denunciation on the members of the government as scoundrels. Sar raut struck Pugllesl-Conti a stunning Wow in the face. A scene of the wild est uproar ensued, compelling the sus pension of the session. It was after the close of the session that the duel occurred. Late reports show that M. iSarraut is suffering from a deep wound in the right breast, penetrating the lung. While the wound is consid ered "serious it is not necessarily dan gerous. Despite the sanguinary conflict laws were Anally enacted to-day by the chamber of deputies reinstating Drey fus, who obtains the rank of chief of squadron of artillery, and Picquart, who la made a brigadier general. Both (houses were overwhelmingly favorable to Dreyfus and Picquart. Throughout the day feeling was stirred Intensely between the Dreyfus and anti-Dreyfus elements. This was heightened by fierce attacks by Dreyfusists against General Mercier and other prominent officers, who were responsible for Dreyfus' condemnation. Early in the day Minister of War Etlenne presented the government bills restoring Dreyfus and Picquart to the army. Minister Btlenne's explana tory preamble to the Dreyfus bill said: "A decision has Judiciously and def initely established the Innocence of the accused, involving ipso facto his rein statement in the army and expunging his condemnation. The government, powerless to repair the immense ma terial and moral injury sustained by the victim of a deplorable judicial er ror, desires to place Dreyfus in the situation he would have occupied if his career had not been interrupted. The preamble to the Picquart bill said: "Proclamation of the innocence of Dreyfus demonstrates the legitimacy of Ploqnart's loyal and courageous ef forts for the triumph of truth at the risk of definitely breaking his career. We demand that parliament expunge the effects of his action by the confer ment of the rank of brigadier with pri ority over other brigadiers." The army committee quickly and unanimously reported the hill, and the debate in the chamber of deputies was decisive, Dreyfus securing 473 votes against 42, and Picquart 467 votes against 26. The feeling then became very strong. The storm broke when M. Pressense, socialist, urged a supplementary prop osition for the punishment of the offi cers who had accused Dreyfus and Pic quart, and whom he designated as a gang of malefactors and forgers, who deserved branding with red-hot irons. It was at this moment that the Sar raut -Pugliesl-Contl encounter occur red. M. PugMesI-Conti, aroused by M. Pressense's denunciation, shouted at the ministerial benches, "You are scoundrels for permitting these insults to officers." Immediately from the ministerial benches there sprang the little wiry figure of Under Secretary Sarraut. He made straight for Pugliesi-Conti, seiz ed him by the throat and planted his right flat squarely in his face. Pugh-esi-Conti reeled, dazed by the blow. and was caught by his friends, while Ministers Clemenceau and Tomson grasped Sarraut's coat tails, and drag ged him back to his seat. Pandemonium immediately broke loose. Deputies gathered In groups In the center of the house. fighting, their blows raining Indiscrim inately. President Brispon ineffectually en deavored to quell the turmilt. but, find ing his efforts in vain, he left the chair and suspended the sitting for a quar ter of an hour. The public galleries were cleared. (Continued on Eighth Page.) STAGE EMPLOYES ALLIANCE. Companies Must Give Season Contracts in the Future. Boston, July 13.

Canadian Playing Strong Game When Travis Defeated Travers in the Morn ing Contest It Was Believed He Would Survive the Semi-Flnals With the Pittsburg Man Latter Strong on Short Game. Englewood, N. J., July 13. Eben By- ers, of Pittsburg entered from the St. Andrews club, and George S. Lyon of the Lambden Country club, Toronto, are the, survivors out of a field of over 130 players who took part In this year's national amateur golf championship tournament. These two will meet to morrow on the links of the Englewood GoIf club in the final round of 3G holes, match play, and as both of them have shown excellent form throughout the week, eaoh has a host of followers. Since the United States Golf associa tion started these annual tournaments none of them became international In character until the preseent contest, and this fact has caused additional in terest in to-morrow's final match. When Walter J. Travis, the former American and British amateur cham pion defeated Jerome D. Travers this morning the popular idea was that he would last through the semi-final and win out from Byers. The Pittsburg man was playing very strong and con sistently, however, and while Travis and he were about equal on the long game, Byers was better on the short game, and won out by 4 up and 3 to play. They played out the ibye holes, and 'Byers went around in 76 while Travis took 79. Lyons beat Knowles this afternoon by 5 up and 4 to play, going out in 38, which was the best golf the Canadiun has shown this week. MILITIA COMES HOME TO-DAY.

BRITISH FLEET NOT TO VISIT RUSSIAN WATERS ST. PETERSBURG GOVERNMENT TAKES THE INITIATIVE IN THE MATTER. To be Postponed to a More Propitious Time Agitation by Political Parties in Both Countries Connecting the Visit With the Internal Policy of Russia Makes it Inopportune Great Britain's Attitude Appreciated. St. Petersburg, July 13. The visit of the British Channel fleet to Russian iwaters has been postponed until a more propitious time. The Initiative In this decision came from Russia, which pointed out that the projected visit had been welcomed with lively satisfaction by the Russian government, which saw in it an expression of sympathy for Russia on the part of Great Britain. Unfortunately, it is added, certain po litical parties in Great Britain and Rus sia fomented a sharp agitation with a view to connecting the visit with ques tions of Russian internal policy. The firm and loyal statements of the British minister for foreign affairs, Sir Edward Grey, brought the question back to its proper ground and was appreciated at St. Petersburg at Its proper value. Nevertheless, in view of the political crisis which is passing over Russia, the government could not help foreseeing that an arrival of British ships at a Russian port might cause a recrudes cence of tlie agitation and incidents of a nature to harm the future relations of Great Britain and Russia. RUSSIAN CABINET CRISIS. Dmitri Shlpofl Deelines Offer of Pre miership from Czar. St. Petersburg, July 13 The Associ ated Press learns from a reliable source that Emperor Nicholas has offered the premiership to Dmitri Shipoff, but that the latter refused the post on the ground that ho is not a member of the majority party in parliament, and that the only possible cabinet in the present crisis is one composed of constitutional democrats. He holds, therefore, that he cannot even be a member of such a cabinet. Prominent - constitutional democrats think the premiership will now be of fered to Count Heyden, who, though he has the sympathy of parliament, will be unable to form a cabinet, although scheduled for a place in the coming constitutional democratic ministry. The postponement of the visit of the British Channel fleet to Cronstadt has caused much hilarity among the mod erates, who look upon it as a sign that the government at last has awakened to its position and la ready to accept the Inevitable. Conservatives, on the other hand, look upon it as another vic tory for the moderates which soon will be followed by a constitutional demo cratic ministry. GVATtMALASS ROUTED.

Charges Witness Who Testified Against ntm With Blackmail. Now York, July 13. The coroner's In quest into the death of Mrs. Alice L. Klnan, who was found beaten to death at the home of her mother, Mrs. Loulso M. Stenton, soveral weeks ago in the Bronx, was adjourned to-night until Monday next, when it is expected the final session will be held. Although Mrs, Stenton was introduced as a wit ness to-day, neither the coroner nor the lawyers could get a coherent statement from her. When the adjournment was taken nothing of apparent Importance had de veloped, and It was said that, while several persons were under suspicion there was nothing definite known to the police which had not been presented at the inquest. Burton W. Gibson, who was attorney for Mrs. Klnan and who yesterday was accused by Mrs. Shippo, who lived in the Stenton house, of having offered her $100 to leave the city, presented an affi davit to-day in which he declared the woman had attempted to blackmail him. He said she met him July 3 and demanded $300 for her garden on the Stenton property, saying she intended moving away. Gibson said he offered her $100 for the garden, but she contin ued to demand the $300 because she said she knew who murdered Mrs. Klnan. Gibson says he finally told the woman to tell her story to the police. Mrs. Shippo, caJled in rebuttal, denied all that was contained in the affidavit and repeated her former story. It was to give the police opportunity to inves tigate these conflicting stories that the adjournment until next Monday was taken. Agreement Finally Reached. Harrlsburg, Penn., July 13.

COURTNEY, CORNELL'S GREAT COACH, QUITS RESIGNS POSIllON AND ASKS RELEASE I ROM HIS CONTRACT. nas Three More Years to Servo But Wants to Get Out Subjected, He De clares, to Continual Annoyances by the Athletic Committee Charges the Cornell Management With Niggardly Treatment of the Navy His Remark able Success as a Couch. Ithaca, N. Y., July 13. Charles E. Courtney has tendered his resignation as coach of the Cornell crews, which position in the Cornell navy he has beld fur twenty-tflve years. His present con tract has three years more to run, but he has asked for his release from' tho contract. The coach gives as his rea son for the step continual annoyances which he says the Cornell athletic management has submitted him to. He feels that the Cornell management has, ibeen niggardly with the navy and dis courteous in its treatment of him per sonally. He declares he has taken the present course after due consideration and counsel with friends. It is under stood that he has several standing of fers for larger salaries than the Cor nell management is giving him. He feels that he has manifostetd his loyal ty to Cornell by refusing these offers in tho past, and declares that his pa tience i.3 exhausted. In reference to the houses which it is generally understood was purchaRed for him by admiring Cornelllans, Mr. Courtney's press rep resentative states that it is now in the market- He says it was paid for, one third by himself, one-third by Cornel llans and one-third by the following outsiders: Governor Roswell P. Flower, $750; F. S. Pleasanton, $400; 'Sidney Shepherd Yale, $200; the Rev. Carnegie, $200; H. W. Sibley, $150; and Timothy Woodruff, $300. Courtney's salary at Cornell has been $2,500 for tho past few years. ,He be lieves ho is the poorest paid coach at Cornell. Courtney is particularly angry with Graduate Manager John L. Senior. Mr. Courtney has had several minor differences with tho athletic association in yeam past; but they have always been smoothed over. Mr. Courtney says he has no plans for the future. He is fifty-six years old and thinks he has many years of usefulness still ahead of him. Prof. Frank Irvine, president of the Cornell Athlotic councils, said to-ngiht that the council could not act on Mr. Courtney's request for a release from his contral until next October, and that in the meantime he would say nothing for publication. Mr. Courtney said to-night he was going on a fishing trip as soon as pos sible. In spite of his assertion that he Is through with the Cornell athletic management for good and all, it is gen erally hoped that some agreement can be reached. Charles E. Courtney was in his time one of the most finished oarsmen this country had ever seen, and as an ama teur was unbeatable, having won sev enty-three sculling races without a de feat. When he became a professional ho seemed to lose heart, and never rowed as well against an opponent as he could against time. As a coach for college crews his equal has not been seen In this coun try. From tho time he began to coach Cornell, nearly thirty years ago, not a single poor crew hais boon turned out from that institution. With both 'var sity eights and fours and freshman eights in recent years he almost al wag came to the starting line on the intercollegiate regatta tho favorite for all three races, and almost always Jus tified the prediction 'by carrying off all the honors. He was a czar In his call ing, and much of tho success of his crews is due to that. He never hesi tated to replace a bad oarsman with a gvod one, two years ago putting tho captain out of the boat. His crews were always trained to the hour. No one ever heard rumors that this, that, or the other man was out of condition, and when the race was row ed the men worked together like a ma chine, never wasting an cunce of pow er, but making every part of the stroke dol its work in showing the way to victory. Experts disagree as to the merits of the stroke he taught, but the crews have won with it year after year, and Cornell's long list of victories is a clear evidence that, whatever else it might not be, It certainly brought vic tory. There Is an old saying that "good horses make good Jockeys," and that has been frequently pnraphrased concerning Courtney. He certainly has (Continued on Eighth Page.)

They returned in the evening, when the president went over his mail with Secretary Loeb. The appearance of Lemuel Ell Quigg in the bay this morning on his steam yacht, the Edmee .caused some inter est on account of the recent political alignments in New York. Mr. Quigg, who was evidently on a pleasure excur sion, did not land, but departed from the bay at an early hour. He made no effort to get in communication with the president. COMMISSIONERS ACCEPT.
