FIRST STONE Li
Delegates to The Hague Pay
Tribute to Carnegie's -Munificence.
PROMOTE CULT CF PEACE
Dutch" Statesman Lauds Founder of
Palace Xelidoff Claims Credit
for Czar of
THE HAGUE. July 30. The founda
tion stone of the Andrew Carnegie
Palace of Peace was lajd this after
noon at Zorgrvllet In the midst of the
wooded park stretching from The
Hague to Schvenlngen by M. Nelldoff,
president of the second peace confer
ence. Practically all the delegates attending
the present peace conference, a num
ber of high court officials, the mem
bers of the States General and the del
egations, from numerous civic and mu
nicipal bodies were grouped around
the stone, which, when the structure
Is completed, will form the corner of
the grand hall of justice.
Chiseled on the stone in bold Roman
characters is the following Latin in
scription: "Pad, Justltlae. flrmandae, hanc,
aedom, Andrae Carnegie, munlflcentia,
Place Right Above Might.
The ceremonies were opened with
music and singing by a number of
choral societies, after which M. A. P.
C. Van Karnebeak, president of the
Carnegie foundation commlttet, de
livered an address in which he paid a
tribute to the "generous man whose
name is engraved upon the first stone
of the edifice due to his munificence."
The thoughts and the thanks of
every one went out, the speaker said
to Andrew Carnegie. Then rapidly
sketching the history of the Carnegie
donation and describing the plans of
the peace palace, which It is proposed
to ask the powers that have signed the
Hague convention to furnish, M. Van
Karnebeak concluded with these
"This is to be a palace of interna
tional justice founded as the outcome
of the need of every civilized country
to substitute the rule of right for the
rule of might. In this palace no one
will be stronger, on one weaker, than
the other, and no other blade except
the sword of justice will be placed in
the scale. The tower of the palace
will point to the stars, indicating the
ideal of our efforts." '
Promote Worship of Peace.
M. Nelldoff expressed the gratitude
of the peace delegates to the munifi
cent donor of the palace and to the
Netherland government for the gift of
the land for the edifice. The palace,
he said, would be a monument to the
first efforts made by the governments
of the world to preserve to the Nations
the benefits of peaceful development
by seeking to prevent wars. The
speaker said he wished to emphasize
the almost sacred character of the pro
posed building. It represented a new
principle in the relations of people,
namely, peace by justice and right.
M. Nelidoff then referred to the anti
quity of the worship of war, and said
there had never been a cult of peace
of the world. Of all the precepts
preached by the Saviour 1800 years
ago, the idea of peace had been the
"To make this idea triumph and
the honor there for accrues to the Em
peror of Russia the governments of
the world must agree to study in com
mon a means of making universal
peace a study by seeking every pos
sibility of assuring its maintenance,"
said M. Nelldoff.
Real Estate Boomer Busy.
Some disappointment is felt that
Queen Wllhelmina, who is at the
Hague, was not present at the cere
monies, and it is reported that the real
reason for her absence Is to ba found
in a dispute of a site for the palace.
Real estate speculators are openly ac
cused of having Influenced the selec
tion of the site at Zorxliet.

The Secretary said that there seemed
to be a well-defined sentiment In the
West in favor of Roosevelt for a third
term, but gave no personal opinion.
He had heard no rumor of his own
resignation and said, "It is too far
ahead to forecast what; I will do at
the end of' my term."

Holding Company Gobbles All.
The petition recites many of the
operations of the so-called powder
trust leading up to the organization, in
May. 1903. under the laws of the State
of New Jersey, of the E. I. Dupont de
Nemours Powder Company, with a cap
ital stock of $50,000,000, as a holding com
pany, for the purpose of acquiring" the
capital stock of every corporation In
the United States engaged in manu
facturing and dealing in high ex
plosives. This New Jersey holding company, it
i alleged, did acquire control of the
companies operating in high explosives
in the United States until all of the
business of shipping and selling such
commodities of substantially 70 com
panies, which had from time to time
since 1872 been separate competing
concerns, and now being carried on' by

The Government asks in its prayer
for relief that these operating compa
nies be enjoined and restrained from
operating and engaging in interstate
commerce in the United States, or that
receivers be appointed to take over
their business. '
The Government also asks that cer
tain capital stock in other companies
by the various holding companies shall
be adjudged unlawful and void, and
that the defendants shall be restrained
from carrying on alleged unfair com
petition against 26 Independent firms,
which at the time of the filing of the
petition were engaged In the manufac

WILMINGTON, Del., July 30. Subpenas
in connection with the Government's suit
against the powder trust were Issued soon
after the filing of the petition. They are
returnable the first Monday in October.
Henry A. Dupont, who is United States
Senator, exercises a dominant influence
over the business of the powder company,
according to the bill.
BOTH SIDES WOULD YIELD
STRIKERS AND OPERATORS
WILLING TO CONCEDE.
Officials, However, Will Not Hold
Open Opportunity to Return to
Work More Than 24 Htinrs.
DULUTH, July SO. While the officials
of the steel corporation will continue the
conciliatory attitude which they thus far
have maintained toward the striking ore
dock employes, it is not believed that they
will hold open to them an opportunity to
return to work more than 24 hours.
There is unquestioned basis for the
statement that a reply has been drafted
in answer to the last communications of
the strikers announcing their willingness
to go to work upon the appointment of &
committee of arbitration to settle the dif
ferences. The reply, it Is understood, will
assert the willingness of the company to
meet any of their employes individually or
as a committee to discuss with them any
points in dispute which the men feel
should be adjusted after they have re
turned to work, but at the same time
pointing out wherein they consider that
arbitration does not concern the main
issue between the men and the company.

fined. Mahoney returned to Hlbblng after
his companion had been arrested.
Aside from Petriella's arrest and the
affair at Nashwauk last evening when
Sheriff Hollihan arrested several agita

today. About the same mines were work

Asphalt for Third Street.

a petition asking that that thoroughfare
be paved with asphalt, the distance cov

effort was made last year to have this

MIm Edith Root.
WASHINGTON, July 80. An
nouncement was made today of the
engagement of MIm Edith Root,
only daughter of Secretary of State
and Mrs. Ellhu Root, to Lieutenant
U. 6. Grant III, V. S. A., son of Major
General Frederick' Dent Grant, com
manding the Department of the
East, and grandsonof the late Pres
ident Grant. No date has yet been
set for the. wedding, but it probably
will occur in the Autumn. Lieutenant
Grant has been one of the military
aides to President Roosevelt, and the
social duties of that position first
brought about his acquaintance with
way breweries, respectively on the north
and south banks of the canal, were threat
ened with demolition. No one wag hurt.
The canal level at this point Is five
miles in length and Division Superintend
ent Thomas Wheeler immediately ordered
the water drawn off. He said that the
break was caused by the arches of the
aqueduct over Onondaga Creek giving
way. When the level Is emptied, the
danger of flood In the creek section north
to Onondaga Lake will pass and the
backed up waters of the. creek will flow
uninterruptedly by the boats.
All canal traffio is tied up and it will
be several days at least before the dam
age can be repaired. The boats and car
goes are a total loss.
