WORKS FOR ARBITRATION Interparliamentary Union Will Sub mit Model Arbitration Treaty and Plan for Conrrress of Nations at The Hague. ' BRUSSELS, Aug. 2S. The opening of the Inter-Parliamentary Congress In the .National Palace this morning was the occasion of a notable demonstration In 'behalf of President Roosevelt and the success of the peace conference at Ports mouth. The session was hold In the Sen ate Chamber of the Palace. Large dele gations, representing practically all the Jeadlng Parliaments of the world, -were present The welcoming address, delivered by Minister of State Beernaert, aroused a storm of appaluse -when he referred to President Roosevelt's two conspicuous movements in behalf of peace in first calling another meeting of The Hague Conference, and, secondly, in bringing to gether the plenipotentiaries of Russia and Japan. Baron Favercau, the Belgian Minister of Foreign Affairs, added natter ing tributes to the American President's efforts. The Congress then adopted, amid enthusiasm, resolutions of thanks to President Roosevelt, and the secretary was Instructed to cable the following: Thanks to Roosevelt, Peacemaker. "President RooseVelt, Oyster Bay. The Inter-Parliamentary Congress, at Brus sels assembled, sends greetings and has the honor to advise you that it has passed resolutions expressing its high apprecia tion of your, action in. calling a second conference at The Hague in the interest of international peace, and its profound thanks for your noble efforts in the in terests of humanity to terminate the Russo-Japanese War." King Leopold received the delegates to the Congress this- afternoon. He con versed with -each of the American mem bers, expressing his admiration or the United States and saying that he kept President Roosevelt's picture bearing his signature on his desk in his study. At the afternoon session the Congress discussed the American propositions of Representative Richard Bartholdt, of the United States, for a model arbitra tion treaty and a permanent Congress of the Nations. ' Mr. Bartholdt said: The status of our common cause in the United States never justified a more fa vorable report than it does at the present time. Two causes have mainly contrib uted towards this revival of interest In the 'p'aecc -movement the meeting of the Inter-Parllamentary Conference on Amer ican soil and the deep-growing disgust "with that barbarous war in the Orient. Under the Hague Convention, the Pres ident already enjoys a larger measure of discretion than the new treaties, in their amended form, would have conferred upon him. The failure of these treaties may prove a blessing in disguise. It justifies the hope that the outcome will be the approval by The Hague-Conference of- a. treaty wider in scope and yet more defi nite in detail. It is with pardonable pride we Amer icans point to the historical fact that It was- left to an American President not only to open the doors of The Hague again, but also to stop, in the Interest of both the belligerents and humanity, the war -between" Russia and Japan. Representative James L. Slayden, of Texas, spoke in favor of the proposition. Herr Von Plcner, president of Austrian Upper House, opposed Immediate action, owing to the magnitude of the subject. The Congress resolved to refer the treaty proposition to a committee with instruc tion to report within three months. Count Apponyl announced that ho would support plans for the pormanent Con gress of the Nations, and said that he would move tomorrow that a special com mittee report thereon within three months. Sent to The Hague Conference. This action contemplates having the projects for a model arbitration treaty and a permanent Congress ready for sub mission in the second Hague conference, which is expected to follow tho close of the Russo-Japanese "War. A brilliant reception in honor of tho delegates was held tonight by the mem bers of tho Belgian Senate and Chamber of Rapresentativos. ' Representative "V. A. Smith, of Michi gan, left tonight for Berlin where he will have an audience with Emperor William. GOLD COURTESY TO BRITISH Germans Receive Fleet "With Curios ity, Officials Are Cordial.

The biggest coal strike ever made In Canada was made yesterday, when Dep uty Inspector of Mines Neville uncovered the northern outcrop of the Mulllns seam near Lingan, about nine miles In a straight line from where the Capo Bre ton Coal, Iron & Railway Company is operating at Broughton. This discovery adds over 100 per cent to the Dominion Coal Company's proved coal areas on land, and assures numerous other lease holders of a profitable coal seam In their leases. The Dominion Coal Company holds the leases upon which tho strike has been made, and will undoubtedly proceed with their development. Tho scam is known as the Mullins seam and has been lost to prospectors for upward of 50 years. It showed six feet of clean coal, equal In quality to the poal of the Low Point areas, and its outcrop lino wljl measure from 18 to 20 miles, extend ing from Lingan to Mlra Bay, Its great est distanco from the coast line being at Broughton. This shows a land area of about 1W square miles, of 61S,520.O tons of coal. President Ross Is jubilant over tho discovery, as it adds a long lease of existence to the operations of the Domin ion Coal Company. The discovery has created a big sensation among mining men. The seam is only about 70 feet from the surface, but this Is only on the outcrop. Tho find also establishes the important fact that the Tracer and the Mulllns are two distinct seams, a matter about which there bad been some doubt. Entries on Uintah Reservation.

NEW ORLEANS IS RECOVERING Steadily Gains on Disease Gulf Port Proved to Have Cases. NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 28. Though New Orleans Is now In the midst of a period usually critical In yellow fever epidemics, there Is no present Indication that tho Federal authorities are to lose their grip on the situation. Monday always shows an Increase over Sunday in the number of new cases, because Sunday Is a good deal of a holiday for the Inspecting" force and only the doctors aro to be depended upon, but today's total was regarded as confirming the opinions expressed a week ago that there is little further chance that the disease will get away from those who are fighting It so stubbornly. The weather this morning was unseasonably cool, following a hot spell on Sunday, but It was not followed by heavy mortality. Unusual interest attaches to the devel opments in connection with the outbreak of- fever at Gulfport. The case of Mrs. Collins, which resulted In tho acknowl edgement by Gulfport of Infection there. Is taken to Indicate that yellow fever was present at Gulfport some weeks ago. Mrs. Collins reached here from Gulfport last Monday evening. She was taken 111 on tho train on her way over. Dr. Leboeuf, president of the New Orleans Medical Society, was called on Tuesday and saw at once that Mrs. Collins was suffering from yellow fever. Mrs. Collins expressed surprise when sha was told that she had yellow fever. She said she had lived In a house about a xnUe from the railroad station, close to a house In which two young men had been sick Just 14 days prior to her at tack. Sbo said that for several days she had noticed four or five doctors visiting the house, leading her to believe that a consultation was in progress. Subse quently it was announced that the sick ness was malaria. Dr. Wasdln was or dered to Investigate. The result was the turning up of three cases of yellow fever In the territory In which Mrs. Collins lived. As a result of the discovery of the cases at Gulfport and Mississippi City, numbers of doctors here who have patients on the Mississippi coast are now advising their return to the city.

THE NORTH FOR HEALTH ARCTIC EXPLORATION AS CURE FOR CONSUMPTION. Polar Climate Said to Have Benefi cial Influence on Sufferers From Tuberculosis. London Tid Bits. The so-called "cures" for consumption are almost as numerous as the victims themselves and scarcely a day passs without the hopes of thousands of suffer ers being raised by the advertised "dis covery" of some novel but "absolutely re liable" method of battling with the scourge. Each victim of tuberculosis, as every reader knows. Is only too willing to try any remedy recommended, and will cheerfully put himself to the Incon venience and discomfort of sleeping In a snowdrift or lying for hours in the light of somo "ray" machine it only he may thereby be restored to health. But so far. tho doctors tell us, no certain cure has been found, and it is therefore hardly to be wondered atvthat an experiment soon to be tried by Dr. Frederick Sohon, of Washington, Is being followed with the greatest posslblo Interest. Dr. Sohon has accompanied Lieut. Peary on two expeditions In search of the North Pole, and it Is due to this taste for explo ration and adventure that his attention was attracted to Arctic Circle as possess ing a climate absolutely antagonistic to every kind of pneumonia disease. Dr. Sohon Is now busy fitting out a magnifi cent vessel, which will shortly convey a number of patients suffering from tuber culosis to Greenland, where they will re main for at least three months, at tho end of which time ho feels perfectly con fident they will return permanently cured."" In the course of an Interesting Interview with the celebrated scientist regarding his proposed search for a consumption cure within the Arctic Circlo, the doctor evi denced much enthusiasm about the expe dition. He has no doubt whatever about its success. "This has been a pet scheme of mine for years," he said; "in fact, ever since I mado my first trip with Peary in search of the North Pole In 1S37. I have been laying my, plans for a long time, but it was only 12 months ago that I saw any chance of their being realized. Now. however, wo are all ready, and by the end of this month I hopo we shall bo well on our way to Baffin Land. "When I went to tho Arctic regions with Peary In 1S97," continued tho doctor. "1 was myself a sufferer from consump tion, and scarcely expected to return to my own country. But I recovered so rap idly that I was astonished, and It was in this way that I first began to consider the curative properties of an Arctic cli mate. According to my theory the germ of consumption can only exist in a climate that is nearly as warm as the human body, and though I made many bacterio logical cultures in Greenland I never found a disease germ. "The atmosphere to the very northern boundary ot Greenland and far above the Arctic Circle Is so clear that ono is un able to judge correctly the distance of even near-by objects. One may walk to ward a point apparently but a mile away and walk for an hour without seemingly getting nearer to It or even very far from the starting point. One may try to throw at a mark apparently within easy range, only to find that the strongest throw will cover but half of the distance. There Is no dust or other harmful at mosphere contamination. There is no dirt: tho rocks arc clean, and every bit of dead lichen or moss that Is not car ried away by the melting snow In Spring Is greedily held fast by the living roots. "Just to give you an Idea of the general conditions favorable to health, I may tell you that In the arctic circle meat never spoils when exposed to the air, and though if kept away from the direct sunlight. It may become coated with mould It will sot rot. In fact, nothing decays there $5.00 IN THIRTY DAYS What more liberal terms could you ask than this offer of the most satisfactory and economical of all modern ranges Buck's. A range with perfect baking and fuel-saving qualities, complete construction and finish throughout; these are the most essential requirements to be considered in the selection of a range.

WE MAKE LIBERAL ALLOWANCES IN EXCHANGE FOR OLD STOVES AND RANGES J dead bodies do not mortify, they simply disintegrate and disappear under the In fluence of tho elements. I was astonished when at Capo Sabine with Commander Peary to see the condition of tho cloth ing, skins and furs In the former camp of Lieutenant Greely. . "Then again, the arctic air Induces a prodigious appetite, and the taste runs naturally to the kind of food the sufferer from tuberculosis needs, which we wish to give him at home, but which ho has no appetite for and cannot assimilate. In the North man craves meat, and partic ularly fat meat. The Esquimaux are so full-blooded, from their exclusively flesh and blubber food that violent exertion always makes them bleed from the nose, and they also bleed from excitement or laughter. "Another remarkable thing in favor of consumptives Is tho Invariable and ex traordinary Increase In weight of a crew In the North subsisting on salt pork, corned beef, potatoes and bread. I might also state that on both occasions in which I have been to Greenland I have exceeded ray usual maximum wtflght, gaining the first time thirty pounds in two months, and tho second time nineteen pounds in six weeks. "In tho arctic region In Summer there Is a period of three months of never ceasing sunlight every hour in the twenty-four. Think of tho effect of a contin uous sun bath of fourteen weeks! Even above the arctic circle, during the Sum mer months, the temperature seldom falls to freezing. In July and August It never freezes, the temperature remaining from thlrty-flvo degrees to forty-flve de grees. There is no Increase of heat dur ing the day and no cooling off at night, for of night there s nono and the tem perature must remain the same. "We shall penetrate Into -the Interior of Greenland, going about seventy-flve miles up the Omenak FJord. a place that I have visited before and know welL Those who form the party will live on the boat, but there is plenty of game and other amuse ments to be found for those who are able to- Indulge In such exercise. The personal outfit T am recommending the travelers to take consists merely of ordinary light "Winter apparel.

The sea Is usually smooth, and Is always so when there Is any drifting Ice. Altogether we start under very favorable aspects all my pas sengers are full of enthusiasm and hope, and I feel absolutely certain that when we return each ono of them will be permanently cured."
