Its .Right to Charge Ten Cents From the Borough to Coney Island. New TorkT Aug.-13. The determina tion of the people to resist' the pay ment of a ten-cent fare to rhe Brook lyn Rapid Transit company for pass age to Coney Island, Supreme Court Justice Gaynor having decided that five cents was legal fare, led to further excitement today. Late tonight the Brooklyn Rapid Transit company relaxed its enforce ment of its rule that double fares must be paid. Numbers of passengers bound from Coney Island who would not pay the extra five cents were allowed by conductors and inspectors to continue on their way. That the officials of Kings county and the borough of Brooklyn were pre pared to enforce Justice Gaynor's de cision became apparent during the day. District Attoiney Clarke of Kings county detailed one of his as sistants to hear complaints of rough treatment by the company's employes because they had refused to pay an nxtra fare. Mr. Clarke also announced that prosecutions would follow every proven case or maiiieatmeiu. Borough President Bird S. Coler is- sued a public statement advising per sons to pay but a single fare for a ride from points In Brooklyn borough to Coney Island and the police In the af fected distiicts were ordered to be ready to quell any fresh, disturbances. Meantime Acting Police Commissioner Waldo revoked permits empowering the company to employ special police mcn'to assist the regular men of the company to put off its cars persons PEACE PARTY UNION TO REFORM RUSSIA A Plan to hm Submitted ta Rerfenera- j tieniat for Approval. i St. Petersburg, Aug. 13. Indications at the meeting of the central commit tee of the old Octoberist party, which closed today, point to the amalgama tion of the Octoberlsts with' the new peaceful party of regenerationists and the acceptance of the program drawn up by Count Heyden, M. Guichkoff and others. All speakers at the meeting of the committee expressed themselves as in favor of this plan, and a resolution was adopted to transmit an appeal to the regeneratinists of all provincial la bor committees to request a vote on the question of the union of the two parties. It has been hoped that the conservative wing of the conservative democrats would join in the movement, although hotheads among the Octo berlsts were disposed to insist on the formal abjuration of the constitution al democratic party on the ground that it had prostituted itself to revolution ary Ideas and shipwrecked the parlia ment. The iHlice of St. Petersburg today captured a wooden model of a field gun which had been used f.or the train ing of a company of revolutionary ar tillery. The iolice also seized a fac tory which was engaged in making shells and bombs, of which fifty, and a quantity of dynamite and pyrociline were captured.

Commissioner Waldo declared that the ruling of Justice Gaynor would be enforced and any roughness toward passengers by the company's represen tatives would meet with arrest. This was offset and complicated to some extent by an official opinion by Act ing Mayor McGowan later in the day, after a conference between him and Corporation Counsel Delaney, that the Brooklyu Rapid Transit company had the right to refuse to carry persons who refused to pay a second faro and the company's employes might us force, if need be, in case of resistance. Meantime the company, through its counsel, ex-Justtce Edward W. Hatch, issued a statement defending the right of the company to charge a ten cent fare to Coney Island. F. J. Calder- wood. vice president and general man ager of the company, backed up this opinion by a statement that business would be done "in the same old way." This afternoon the company's em ployes again began halting cars when ever second fares were not furthcoming from passengers and demanding their payment. Several affrays occurred, and- there were some arrests. Numer ous threats were made against the company and in some instances stones were thrown at the cars and company employes, but by this evening serious trouble was regarded as improbable. It was thought that the whole question would resolve itself into litigation to force the company to charge only sin gle fares.

Rio de Janeiro, Aug. 13. At today's ! session of the international American j conference the report on the reorgani-j eatlon of the bureau of American re publics was unanimously adopted ex cept for the Peruvian amendment, de- darings ".that no maps be published or authorized by the bureau without the approval, of the bordering countries," which was sent to the committee. The Ecuadorean amendment eliminating the American secretary of state as presi dent of the bureau's governing board was defeated after a lively discussion. The conference adopted a declara tion in favor of the conclusion of a convention embodying the principle that a naturalized citizen in one of the contracting countries who renews his residence in the country of his origin without the Intention of returning to the country where he was naturalized be considered to have renounced his naturalization in said country, and the intent to not return shall be presumed to exist when the naturalized person resides for over two years in the coun try of his origin.

A resolution recommending to the different republics the extension for a further period of five years of the "treaty of arbitration for pecuniary claims." agreed upon at the Mexican conference, was adopted. A GLAD HAND MINNEAPOLIS Offers Warm Welcome to the Grand Army The Convention Seenes AVill Reach the Height of Their 3Iagni!iceiice Tomorrow. Minneapolis, Aug. 13. The rush of visitors to this city for the annual en campment of the Grand Army of the Republic continues unabated, and the present prospect is that the meeting will be one of the most successful ever held by the Grand Army. According to the estimates of railroad men fully 10i),ioi people have so far arrived and dozens of trains running in two and three sections are still on the way. Minneapolis has risen to the occa sion in magnificent fashion, and it is difficult to mention anything that could be done for the entertainment and com fort of her visitors which has not al ready been provided. Numerous com mittees have been appointed to receive the veterans at the depots and a man has but to mention who he Is and de clare his desires. At nearly every cor ner in the business t-ection of the city Is an "information booth." A feature of the thouglitfulness that underlies the entire work so far done by the local entertainment committee is found In the numerous benches that are stretched along- both sides of all downtown streets. These afford a rest ing place for tens of thousands of wearied pedestrains. No featuie of the encampment has been so productive of comfort and satisfaction. Flags and bunting are everywhere from roofs to sidewalks and banners are swung in endless profusion across the streets. The decorations, lavish as they now seem, are still in progress and they will be Increased until the morn ing of Wednesday, when all business houses of the city will close in honor of the great parade. Tlie contest for national commander is growing warmer, although no great amount of electioneering has so far been done. The friends of Captain P. II. Coney of Kansas are making what is outwardly the most aggressive cam paign and they claim to be fairly con fident of the election of their man.

Chicago, Aug. 13. The banks of the Chicago Clearing House association have offered a reward of $5000 for the apprehension of Paul O. Steusland, the fugitive president of the Milwaukee Avenue State bank. So anxious are the bankers to capture the accused of ficial that a conference was held this afternoon to decide upon some action to assist the police authoilties in their search for Stensland and the passage of a resolution to pay this reward was the result. The failed bunk has two receivers to night. Judge Gibbons in the circuit court this afternoon appointed the Chi cago Title and Trust company as re ceiver, the appointment being made on the petition of one of the creditors of the institution. Following the ap pointment of the trust company a de mand was made upon John C. Fetser. who was appointed receiver of the bank by Judge Brentano in the superior court last week, that he tuin over all books and papers to the new receiver. Attorneys for Receiver Fetzer advised him to refuse the request and a bitter contest as to who will be receiver is sure to follow.; It is declared by the attorneys who asked for the new receiver today that Fetzer's appointment in the superior court waH illegal because Judge Bren tano was without proper jurisdiction when he made the appointment. STENSLAND'S SON'S STATEMENT. Chicago, Aug. 13. The Tribune to day says that Theodore Stensland, son of the fugitive Milwaukee Avenue bank president, last night made a full statement of his knowledge of the cir cumstances surrounding the (light of his father, touching the colossal forg ery and fraud in the bank. Young Stensland flatly denies that he ever had any knowledge of the plot before Aug ust 3, or that he profited by it in any way. He believes that his father has suicided. Stensland has also turned over to Receiver Fetzer property of his father's amounting to $650,000. He said his father sent him the key of his safety deposit box in a letter post marked St. Paul. Also a letter en closed telling his indebtedness to the bank. In a long envelope, found in the box, were two sheets of paper purport ing to give the elder Stensland's in debtedness to the bank. One list in Stensland's handwriting totalled $1, 003.000 and the other, in Cashier Her. ing'jj writing, was not totalled, but was $300,000 or $400,000 less than Stens land's. The cider Stensland had left a note saying these represented what Herins claimed he (Stensland) owed the bank. , ' o WEATHER TODAY. Washington. Aug. 13.

A woman who has used Postum Food Coffee since it came upon the market 8 years ago knows from experience the necessity of using Postum in place Of coffee if one values health and a steady brain. She says: "At the time Postum s first put on the market I was suffering from nervous dyspepsia and my phys ician had repeatedly told me not to use tea or coffee. Finally I decided to take his advice and try Postum, and got a sample and had it carefully prepared, finding it delicious to the taste. So I continued its use and very soon Us beneficial effects convinced me of its value for I got well of my nervousness and dyspepsia. ' "My husband had been drinkjng coffee all his life until it had affected his nerves terribly. I persuaded him to shift tg Postum and it was easy to get him to make the change for the Posturo is so delicious. It certainly worked wonders for him. "We soon learned that Postum does not exhilirate or depress and does not stimulate, but steadily and honestly strengthens the nerves and the stom ach.. To make a long story short our entire family have now used Postum for eight years with completely satis fying results as shown in our fine con dition of health and we have noticed a rather unexpected improvement in brain and nerve iower." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mieh. Increased brain and nerve power al ways follow the use of Postum in place of coffee, sometimes in a very marked manner.

Aug. 13. Within twelve hours today Alexander A. Chis holm. paying teller of the First Na tional bank, was arrested, charged with the embezzlement of $97,000 .of the bank's funds., given a preliminary heaYing befoie Faked States Commis sioner R. B. Watson, put under a bond of $50,000, and. failing to make it, to night is in the custody of ' the United States officials at one- of the principal hotels of the city. During the afternoon W. L.. Sims and C. M. Hays, manager "and assistant manager of a stock and cotton broker age house, were arrested, charged with aiding and abetting the embezzler of national bank funds. They were also given a preliminary hearing this even ing and Sims' bond was fixed at $50.ofl and Hays' at $10,0oo. Both furnished bonds. The shortage at the First National bank was discovered while Chlsholm was on his annual vacation. The bank has a large reserve fund on hand, and It was from this that the amount was taken. The officials decided to wait and allow Chisholm to return volun tarily. When he stepped from the train this morning he was confronted by the federal officials and several di rectors of. the bank. He at first stoutly denlpd any knowledge of any shortage but later In the presence of -the direct ors made a full confession. W. P. C. Harding, president of the First National bank, said this .after noon that the bank would not lose the whole amount, and that the defalcation would not affect the Institution. The bank. has a capital of $1,000,000 and a surplus of $400,000. When Chisholm was arrested $3,000 was taken from his suit case. He' was bonded by one of the large bond companies for $30,000. The difference between these amounts and the shortage has already been tak en from the undivided profits account of the bank and charged to profit and loss. Young Chisholm was one of the most popular young men soeially and per sonally in Biimiogham. He comes from one of the best families in the south. It is said that practically all the j money embezzled by chisholm lias been used in speculation in cotton futures, and his losses have extended over a period of several months. It is said that he traded under an assumed name, made all his payments for margins in cash and that not one of his intimate friends knew anything of the trans actions. GOMPER'S OPINION CHINESE EXGLUSION B!le?es It Applies to all Territory Controlled by This Country. Washington. Aug. 13. President Gompers of the American Federation of I.,abor. in an authorized statement to day takes issue with Chairman Shouts of the Isthmian Canal commission, on some of the latter's statements on the experiment of coolie labor in con structing the Panama canal. Mr. Oompers characterizes as an ab surdity the contention of Chairman Shonts that the law with respect to the exclusion of Chinese is only applicable to territory at that time subject to the authority of the United States and that the canal was acquired subsequent to that date. "There Is no such provision." said Mr. Gotnpers. " in the law referred to," and he cites the various publications of the law in this connection. Mr. (iompers declares that neither lie nor James O'Connell, president of the In ternational Association of Machinists, who visited Mr. Shonts, was able to persuade him from his position on the eight-hour question, and they devoted little attention to the subject of Chi nese coolies because he says Mr. Shonts emphatically declared it was not his intention to employ them. The charge is specifically made by Mr. Gompers that Chairman Shonts. "had sufficient influence with the congressmen hostile to labor to se cure the annullment of not only the eight-hour law but- the eight-hour principle In the construction of the Panama canal. "The future," he says. "will determine the judgment of the j people of our country on that subject. EVERYBODY HURT When Two Los Angeles Electric Cars Came Together Los Angeles, Aug. 13.
