A part of the cargo of the steamers con Hinting of perishable food products which had spoiled during the long de lay, was unloaded. Norway has not yet changed her opinion In recard to the Uiuefields blockade, but the Norwegian owners ot these vessels, which were charter ed by Americans, regarded the ruling of Secretary Knox in this matter aa assuming protection to the boats and their cargoes.

Tho great uncertainty as to the action of the federal Interstate com; merce commission In regard to in creased freight rates and unfavorable crop reports have combined to exert a retarding effect on general business conditions, according to W. C. Brown, president of the New York Central lilies, who was at the Blackstone ho tel, Chicago, on his return East aftef a Western trip. Mr. Brown had compiled a report on crop conditions in the West, which waf even more unfavorable than the recent government report, except for the Northwestern states. "I have Just returned from a trip Into Southwest Iowa and Northwest Missouri," ;ie said, "and have re ceived reports from good judges of crop conditions who have made a very thorough Inspection of the conditions In Minnesota and the Dakotas. They report a CO per cent crop of small grain and a GO per cent crop of hay. "In Iowa, north of a line drawn cast and west through Dubuque, Waterloo and Fort Dodge to Sioux City, the weather has been hot, the pastures burned badly and the .small grain and hay crop cut fully 2." per cent. Corn, with fairly favorable, weather, promises a normal yield. "The Southwcf.t quarter of Iowa and northwest of the Missouri river has harvested a small crop of grain and hay, except' in quantity and (quality. "Personally I am not at all appre hensive of the results of Increasing the Interstate commerce commission's power," Mr. B-own said, "but rail roads generally are not Inclined to use their capital In extending and Im proving the railroads until they can tell better what the roads' revenues are likely to be. "Uncertainty as to freight rates Is bound to have a checking effect on general business because men cannot make long lime contracts ahead with out being able to figure on the trans portation cost."

Dun & Co's Weekly Review fays: Midsummer dullness Is less pro nounced in both wholesale and reta.i departments of trade and as the lead ing markets are gradually relieved of some of the difficulties with which they have been beset crop uncertain There is still much idle cotton ma chinery In New England and a two weeks' shutdown Is scheduled for Au gust, but curtailment Is forcing a re covery from the low prices and there is less pressure to liquidate stocks. Some substantial business is report ed in wo.ilens and while the Eastern markets for wool continue quiet, pri mary markets In the West are active ties, price Inconsistencies and of their disturbing elements a broader demand develops. Footwear factories, East and West are resuming and trade Is much Im proved in leather while hides have re covered from the low point, large ac cumulations having been moved.

R EPUBLICAN TIONESTA, PA., WEDNESDAY, JULY 27, 1910. E Goldman Says Wider Alone Is Not Responsible For Big Thett. Lawyer for Russo-Chinese Bank Adds That Those Implicated With Former Employe Are Not Connected With Institution Wid er's Attorney Says Bank Was Not Fair With Client Institution Fully Protected, Says Official. New York, July 26. The J80.000 block of bonds that were advertised on Friday as having been stolen from a strong box in the New York agen cy of the Russo-Chlncse bank have proved to be a small part of this financial institution's actual loss. It was stated authoritatively that the to tal approximated $600,000 and thl3 figure was confirmed by Inspector Markowiski, who represents the main olllce in St. Petersburg in Its inquiry, and by Julius Goldman, the bank's attorney. But It appears that Erwln Wider, tho cashier who has confessed that he took considerably more than 580,000 worth of securities, is not held by the bank responsible for the theft of the whole amount. Mr. Markow iski declared that this was true when he was asked whether WIder's takings would stretch beyond the half million mark. Others Concerned In Case. "You know that other persons are concerned in this besides Wider," said he, and a moment later he de clared, "I want to make It. clear that anyone concerned with Wider in these thefts is entirely unconnected with the bank." . Although the inspector was not willing to ampliry this remark his statement in itself confirmed the be lief that exists In the minds of certain men In the financial district that a complete Investigation into the af fairs of the local agency may follow at the request, ot men in this coun try who are Interested in Beeing whether there has been any wrongdo ing on a large scale by outside per sons. II has been learned that such a suggestion is being formulated and that it will be addressed to the Rus sian minister of finance as the per son who should start an Inquiry of this son. His representative in this country is Ciegcry Wllenkln, finan cial agent of the imperial Russian government, whose office Is in New Loudon, Conn. Wider, the cashier, is still missing and a number of central office detec tives have been sent by Inspector Russell to get him. Exactly why he keeps out. of sight Is not plain, for hi lawyer said: "Wider is going to plead to this charge; he is going to take his medicine all right. But the bank people did not play square with him and now he is going to make them hunt for him." "What do you mean by their not playing square?" he was asked. "Well, the idea was that the search for these securities should be carried on quietly and that any action was to be withheld until fall," said Oinsbtirg. "Wider was going to help them look for thest bonds. One day last week Wider and 1 went to Goldman's of fice to meet him and Markowiski. "It was understood that Wider should be given 24 hours in which to return to the place where he was hiding. As a matter of fact he was a little afraid to be absolutely frank with them and he did not go to the place that they thought he had in mind. And It was a good thing that he did not, because men were sent to be there w hen he got back. Of course. they did nt find him and they have not found him yet." Did Not Give Names bf Brokers. Lawyer Glnsburg did not make good his announcement of Saturday night when he said that he would give out the names of the stock exchange houses with which Wider was able to do business. He said it was not a bin IT and that he knew the name of several of these firms. He said that lie had never seen a list of the stocks and bonds with which Wider had traded. He be lieved that Goldman had such a list and that they were tracing these se curities. On this subject Inspectof Markowiski said: "The bank is fully protected and you may rest assured that every cent of these securities will be returned." Consld'-rable interest was express ed among wall street men today in the chances of the bank to recovef Secretary Ely of the Stock exchange; could not ho induced to give his opin ion on this question; nor would he comment upon ihe probability thai any firms which had done business with Widrer would be disciplined. Opinion varied among brokers on the subject of ability to recover thesfl siocks and bonds. Gov. and Mrs. Hughes at Washington, Albany, July 26.

Chicago, July 26. Wholesale raids of establishments where "doped" pop is alleged to be made, and the confis cation of thousands of bottles of the beverage are contemplated by the de partment of health as a result of the discovery that much of it Is "docter od" with lead salts, to "create an ap lielite." Chemists of the department have reported to Health Commission er Evan? that pop manufactured by a North side concern was found to con tain between one and one-half and two grains of lead of salts in each bottle tested. The Investigation was brought about through experiments conducted by Dr. George W. Thilo, Jr., a North tide physician, and E. J. Heiss, a druggist. The physician had treated numerous children whose malady puz zled him, and learned that many had been drinking pop. To thoroughly in vestlgate he drank 14 bottles of the lieuod and became severely ill from lead poisoning. Mr. Hoiss was afflict ed In the same way after a similar venture. "The children have been In the habit of going to stores where this drink is sold nt two cents a bottle, a price at which it could not be made with proper precautions." sail Dr. Ihilo. "The heallli department should destroy the apparatus in these con cerns and confiscate all of their bot tled goods." JEFFRIES TO FIGHT AGAIN? Said to Be liter Another Battle With Johnson.
