Congress of Parliaments Thus
f Hails Roosevelt.
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
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
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.
Germans Receive Fleet "With Curios

BWINBMUNDB, Prussia, Aug. 28.
The presence of the British and German
fleets in these waters today brought
an 'Influx of visitors, who evidently

their demeanor was in no way hostile,
it was notably cold. Throughout the

visitors to the British vessels.
Tho customary official visits were ex
' changed between the Admirals and the
shor.e authorities, but no attempt at
special decorations in honor of tho
fleets was made.
The authorities this evening gave a

More Coal In Canada.
Halifax (N. S.) Herald.
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.

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
As a result of the discovery of the cases
at Gulfport and Mississippi City, numbers

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
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
"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
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. Above all, consider our
inducive offer of any "Buck's" in our stock at the above quoted terms.

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
"Another remarkable thing in favor of
consumptives Is tho Invariable and ex

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
