PARIS, Doc 1. The Socialist leader, M.

been holding secret meetings. The mani
festo leaves the individual parties free to
pursue their own methods of opposition to
the government, but pledges the union of
all the elements of the opposition to se
cure "the abolition of autocracy and the
substitution of a democratic system, based
upon universal suffrage, the revocation of
the measures destructive of the constitu
tion of Finland, and the suppression of the
violence of the central government

"The parties represented here will unite
their efforts for the purpose of hastening
the inevitable fall of absolutism."

opposition parties is part of the move
ment for the adoption of a democratic in
stitution in Russia, which, he declares,

NewtonClaim Is to Se M,et, as Well
as Airother Legitimate Ones,
NEW TORS, Dec 1. George Ryall, lo
cal counsel lor Herbert D. Newton, to
night made a statement that the. settle
ment agreed upon with Mrs. Cassie L
Chadwlck, of Cleveland, is for the pay
ment In cash of Mr. Newton's entire
claim. The payment, he said, is to be
made either this week or early next.
7o securities have ben given for this
payment," he added, "but we are sure
It will be made"
In reference to the statement this after
noon by Edmund Powers, counsel for
Mrs. Chadwlck, that of the amount
claimed by Mr. Newton, 5G5.O0O represent
ed notes given for bonuses, Mr. Ryall
"Mr. Powers is mistaken in his figures.
The notes he refers to do not represent
bonuses. The settlement is upon our full
claim of 5190.800."
Mr. xtyall further said that Mr. Newton
was In conference with his own attorneys (
today, but no one representing him held'
any conference with Mrs. Chadwlck or
her attorneys.
Mr. Newton and Mr. Carver returned to
Boston this afternoon.
That all the legitimate claims against
Mrs. Chadwlck will be met is the state
ment made by her attorneys, but at the
same time they decline to say anything
as to the source from which the neces
sary funds will be obtained.
They would not discuss the value of
the securities said to be in the posses
sion of Ira Reynolds, treasurer of the
Wade-Park Banking Company, of
Cleveland, or. In fact, any of tho indi
vidual features of the case. The set
tlement of the Newton claim when
made will reduce Mrs. Chadwick's al
leged obligations by flSO.SOO. At the same
time, however, there remain claims aggre
gating at least $800,000.
Edmund W. W. "Powers, counsel for Mrs.
Chadwlck. made a statement regarding
the case this afternoon. He said the total
indebtedness to Mr. Newton was approxi
mately $190,000. Of this he said $78,000 was
money actually owed and due, $53,000 was
due on bonuses to be paid for accommo
dation, and $5000 was owed on two notes.
of $25,000 each, which would not mature
for a year.
vara. Chadwlck has ample money to
meet her debts," said Mr. Powers. "She
has over $1,000,000 In her own right. It Is
true that she paid over to her husband
$2,500,000 some time ago, but had enough
to meet all of her debts, which total
about $500,000.
"Mrs. Chadwick's personal statement
will not be ready until Saturday," he said.
"She is now working on It, and will have
It ready then."
A story was current late today that Mrs.
Chadwlck drove from the Holland House
to the Central Trust building In Wall
street this afternoon, where she remained
several hours In the law offices of Butler,
Nolman, Joline & Mynderse. Mr. Jollne,
of this firm, is attorney for Andrew Carnegie.
Mr. Joline disclaimed any knowledge of
airs. Chadwick's presence and declined to
make any statement regarding her. Other
members of the firm also declined to make
any comment.

sel lor Mrs. Chadwlck,. and the hear

Remains Are Washed Ashore, and It
Is Evident He Suffered Greatly.
STEVENSVILLE, Mich., Dec 1. Pe
ter Nlssen, who started across Lake
Michigan in his boat, "Foolklller No
3," was found dead on the "beach, two
and a half miles west of here today.
Nissen is supposed to have, been wash
ed ashore during the nighti His "Fool
killer" was about 20 rods down the
beach from the body and was much
damaged. A life-preserver and his
overcoat were fastened to the basket
shaped car in the boat. The body was
brought tp Stevensvllle, where It lies
in the town hall.
The hands and face arc frozen and
.the features reflect his suffering. The
clothing on the body was somewhat
torn. It is thought that Nlssen could
not have been dead a great while when
tho body was found, as mortification
had not set in.
The body was found by Mrs. Collier,
who lives on a farm near the lake
shore. Nissen's employer was notified
as soon as word was received here that
the body had been found and a Coro
ner's Jury was Impaneled and began
an inquest. Men have gone from hero
to bring in the wrecked "Foolklller
No. 3."
It Is almost certain that Nissen prac
tically reached shore alive yesterdf
about 4 o'clock, after ho had been out
of Chicago 24 hours. The "Foolklller
No. 3" was then seen about 200 rods
from shore off Livingston, six miles
south of Stevensvllle. A heavy gale
was blowing and It Is presumed he was
unable to land and was probably tossed
about up shore all night.
It is believed that Nissen was either
unconscious or so thoroughly chilled
that he was unable to save himself
when the "Foolklller" finally collapsed
and that he was drowned.
When the wrecked aquatic balloon was
examined, one of Nissen's business cards
was found, on the back of which was a
note, from the dead adventurer saying
an air hose, upon which he depended to
renew his supply of air, had broken, and
he was doomed to die of suffocation.
It Is believed here that Nissen was aliv'i
when his boat first touched ths eastern
shore of the lake . His wrecked boat was
lato today hauled into Stevensvllle and
a Coroner's Jury was Impaneled. The
Inquest was adjourned for further inves

In the game with Colorado, although
thrA rpcrular men were mlsslntr from '
the line-up, the- team played the florc
est game of the season. kAl Trow

star game. On defensive he was a
whirlwind and on jthe offensive ne
bucked tho opposing' line and ran the
ends ror long gams, ne mane two oi
thf flvA touchdowns, one of them after
a sensational run of 30 yards through
a scattered field. Ho also did excel
