Four of the Crew of an American

Men Marooned on Island m
"the Land of Fire.''
New York.—The story of the wreck
of the American bark Prussia, on
bleak Staten Island, Terra del Fuego,

Six of the crew have been landed here
by the steamer from Montevideo. Four
perished and three are in a hospital
at Puntas Arenas. The Prussia was
owned in San Francisco and sailed
from Norfolk. Va.. March 27, with a
cargo of coal for San Francisco. On
the night of June 19. which was
stormy and bitterly cold, while Cap
tain Johnson was trying to make the
New Year's island light, the bark went
ashore and soon broke up. Eleven of
the thirteen men in the crew suc
ceeded in reaching a strip of sand,
sheltered somewhat by overhanging
rocks. At dawn it was discovered
that Sabala, the Japanese cook, and
Harry Hammond, a sailor, were miss
ing. The strip of sand was narrow
and huge cliffs barred and escape
across the island.
Captain Johnson soon died of ex
haustion and was buried in th« sand.
The survivors had a few provisions
and subsisted off these. Meantime a
boat was laboriously built from the
wreckage. But fear that the provis

Court Upholds Validity of tho Ollvor
Grand Jury, Thua Staling Pats
of Schmitz, Ruaf and Otharo.
San Francisco. Cal.— The atate su
preme court on Monday rendered a de
cision upholding the validity of the
so-called Oliver grand jury. On this
decision depended the (ate of the In
dictments found subsequent to March
last, which include those against
Schmitz, Ruef and others.
The attack was made ou the grand
jury by Williams M. Abbott of the
United Railways, Frank O. Drum, .Kohn
Martin and Eugene De Sabla of the
San Francisco Gas company, and other
defendants, to test the validity of the
indictments charging them with brib
ery. They contended that lu February
last the names fur a new grand Jury
were drawn, and that, whtle the Oliver
jury has not been discharged. Its pow
ers lapsed with the first step taken to
impanel its predecessor.

Hepburn Act >e Amendatory in th*
Opinion of tha Court.
Denver.—In an opinion announced
Monday by the United States circuit
court of appeals sitting in Denver, the
judgment of the district court for Min
nesota against the Great Northern
railway In the rebate casts was prac
tically affirmed. The circuit court
holds that the Hepburn act la an
amendatory and not a repealing aet.
that In so far as It reiwals or repro
duces portions of the Elkins act it con
tinues them in force and makes no
break In the law, and that in so far as
it omits or changes provisions of the
Elkins act, it repeals them.
The act of granting rebates was ad
mitted by the Great Northern Railroad
company at the trial, and the only
question presented by the railway
company was whether or not the El
kins act of 1902. making It an offense
and fixing punishment for granting re
bates. was repealed by the Hepburn
act of 19o€ in such a way that there
after there could be no prosecution or
punishment of offenses committed
prior to the repeal. The district court
ruled against this contention of the
railway company, and hence the ap
peal to the circuit court of appeals.

The Hague.—After having been 1«
session more than three months, and
with adjournment probably a month In
the distance. It la recognised gener.
ally, and even by the most optimis
tic In the peace movement, that tha
second International peace conference
has been and will be, at its conclusion,
barren of results leading to perma
nent measures of benefit to the peace
of the world. Even the proposition
for a future meeting of the conference,
which was unanimously adopted on
Saturday, has been so altered aa to
suppress its most important part,
namely, the periodicity of meetings,
merely providing for the calling of a
third conférence, but establishing noth
tng with regard to the convening ol
the future conferences.
The prevailing opinion, as expresaeq
by one of the leading delegatee, hi
that the absence of results In the con
ference on the great question wa* due
to the lack of preparation by all
the countries represented. This, ha
said, was especially striking In the
case of the American delegation, which
was supposed to have come here In
complete accord with the lxittn Ameri
can countries. This accord, however,
neither existed, nor had It been reach
ed during the conference. Indeed, the
chief result of the conference will be
a growing feeling of diffidence on the
part of the South Americans toward
Washington, as. rightly or wrongly,
they accuse the United States of hav
ing neglected them and of caring only
for working in accord with Great Brit
ain and Germany.

lj resents the, proposition that haa
been discuaaed In a more or less aca
demic way to surrender the Philip
pines, which, of all men, he was a lead
log factor la bringing ander the An»
lean flag. In an Interview, the admiral
sets out the reasons which Impel him
to Insist upon the retention of tha
Islands. The strong point of hla ar
gument la not based upon the military
or naval Importance of the Islands,
but npon the great value, present and
prospective, of the Philippines to
America In the extension of our trad*
with the orient.
The admiral says: "Abandon tha
Philippines ? I don't believe our coun
try will ever do that. Certainly U
should not, because It haa altogether
too much at stake. It Is only our con
trol over the Philippines that makes It
possible for us to Insist upon tha op—

diplomacy has been directed for year*.
We want oar share of the enormous
commerce of the east and we can't

300 years dominate the commerce of
the orient? Just because she bad the

years every strong European nation
has been trying to get a foothold for

commercial advantages over the na
