Of this tarn $3,000,000 In to be raised by the re tailers themselves and $2,000,000 by pop ular subscription at $1 a ehare with a maximum holding by any one person of twenty shares. When the committee went into session, it hud pledged sub scriptions of $700,000. When it had finished this had been increased to (1, 000,000. President Wagner said that there was no doubt whatever that the atire ft.OOO.OOO will be quickly raised by the retailers in New York alone. President Wagner says the pries is not filed by the market conditions, but by caprice. Wagner also declare that 60 percent of the slaughtered beef is avail able or food supply and the rest has to be disposed of for various usee, but little it lost. He says this city is more favor ably situated for the profitable produc tion of this product than any of the Western cities. He says cattle can be shipped here and more economically slaughtered and placed on the market tban in any other city In the country. It is asserted by the retailers that there are available here for slaughterers more than 3000 men who have been compelled for different causes to leave the butcher business and get into some more profit able calling. When asked what ti nth there was In the minor that John Rockerfeller, Will iam C. Whitney and other great capital ists had offered help to fight the truBt, Wagner said a committee was now try ing to meet Mr. Rockerfeller, but he is out of the city and has not been accessi ble. Wagner diil not know what Mr. Whitney intended to do. He rays a number of wealthy cattle rofn have agreed to come forward the moment the renture takes tangible shape and take large blocks of the stock. President Wagner said the executive committee oold not yet recommend site, but that a majority of the members favor war blocks that have been offered in wng Island City. Mr. Kahn prophesied mat the "trust" would be asking for wnns in a very short time. JJulli President Wuirner and Mr. Kahn laughed at the claim of the trust that it has to pay more for cattle now and that Is ihe cause of the riee la the prices of its meats. Both sny the stockraisers are ooniplaining bitterly that they are piling none of the benefit of the higher prices, but that on the contrary y are at the mercv of thu trust, which "iy any is scaling down the prices for luea.

IN THE BOUND ARY DISPUTE Has Distorted Facts and Suggested Bad Motiv.cs Tuppcr Has Misrepre sented In His Recent Inter view . and Caused Considerable Dissatis faction at the United States Embassy. London, Aug. 26. Upon authority of unbounded reliability, aieporterof the Associated Frees has ascertained that Into the Alaska dispute there has crept the craftiness of Russian diplomacy. Russia, it can be stated, will do every thing, with every possible energy, to pre vent the practical cohesion of the two great English-speaking nations. In all her embassies, instructions have been received to thwart the Anglo-American understanding. A prominent diplomat, who is intimately acquainted with the details of the negotiations of the past few years, said to a reporter of the Associated Press : "In any arrangement looking to a working agreement between England and the United States, Russia sees the defeat of her dearest projects. I believe her intense activity in China is to no small extent due to her fear that Anglo- Saxon power, once realized, w ill sweep everything beforo it in the far East. Dreading the rapid realization of this nightmare, she is making hay while the suu shines, in the meantime intriguing to the utmost to tie the hands of those who are working to materialize Anglo American sentiment. The later evidence of this is in the Alaska affair. "Though, strictly speaking, it is a mat ter of internal politics and would have been settled long ago if left solely to Great Britain and the United States, Russia has managed to suggest motives never dreamed of by America, by dis torting facts. It is impossible for me to divulge exactly how, or to what extent Russia got her paws into the dispute. But the attitude of her press, official to the oore, is quite sufficient to ehow her motive." The caustic remarks of Sir Charles Tupper, formerly Canadian high com- mibsioner, in ah interview with a repre sentative of the Associated Press, had with him August 18, when he said the United States was purposely delaying the settlement of the Alaeka dispute on account of the pecuniary bcuefit accuring to miners and coast cities through fhe delay, and had refused to have the boundary delimited, as was being done in Ventzuela, created considerable dia latisfaction at the United States embassy, Itwaac'aimed there that Sir Chatl Tupper quite misrepresented the facts; that tho dilatorinesa was entirely due to the Canadians. ADMIRAL WATSON IS VERY ILL An Accident to His Launch Startled Him He Is Now Wholly Inca pacitated for Duty. Washington, Aug. 20. The Army and Navy Register says: Recent advices from Manila mention the illness of Admiral Watson as a source of great anxiety to his officers. The III- nes is an rffect of an accident which occurred to his launch while he was on hn.nl on Julv 11. The Baltimore, his flagship, has been for some time at Ca- vlto, leaving Manila so as to escape the full force of the typhoons. Requiring to make a trip up tho river, the admiral started In his launch. A strong wind was blowing, and the launch, the Undine, went under the bridge over the river, known as the Bridge of Spain, the strong current aided br the wind set against the little boat, and she was taken out of her course and thrown against a hawser from a sailing vessel. This rope carried away the awning, and, striking the smoke stack, took that also. Admiral Watson, sitting in the forward part of the launch ami witnessing the full danger of the accident, showed no conscious appear ance of having ben startled excessively by the occurrence or in any way of hav ing suffered by it. Later, however. In fact, btfere his re turn to the flagship, serious heart trouble developed, and In consequence he was regarded as extremelv ill np to the date of the letters of the 17th.
