FOR HAGUE COURT
Proposes to Create Perma
nent Tribunal for Peace
MAKE IT FREE TO WORLD
Tells Conference It Has Done Much
to Regulate, Little to Prevent,
War Proposes All Nations
Share the Expense.
THE HAGUE. Aug. 1. In the opening
debate today upon the subject ot gen
eral arbitration before the special com
mittee dealing with this matter, M. Asser
(Netherlands) expressed the opinion that
the extension of arbitration was the only
practical way to bring about limitation of
armaments. ' Joseph H. Choate and James
H. Scott, of the American delegation, re
viewed at length the American proposi
tion, dealing with arbitration from the
standpoint of humanity as well as of in
ternational law. Germany. Great Britain
nd Mexico supported the American prop
osition. C'hoatc Makes Chief Speech.
Mr. Choate. supporting the proposal for
the establishment of a permanent court
of arbitration, quoted from the letter
written by President Roosevelt to Andrew
Carnegie on April 6 and read at the In
ternational Peace Congress In New York.
He said that the instructions given to th
American delegates were to see that
judges of this court be selected from dlf
Sient countries and that they should
represent the different systems of law
and procedure and the most important
languages of, the world.
The court was to be of such dignity,
consideration and rank that the best and
ablest Jurists could accept appointment
thereto. The whole world must have ab
solute confidence In their Judgment.
One thing that prevented more frequent
recourse to The Hague tribunal, as
created by the conference of Mr.
Choate said, had been the expense, and
the lTnited States proposed that the ex
penses of the new court and the salaries
of the judges be borne by the powers in
common. This would make the court free
to whoever appealed to it.
Time to Work for Peace.
Mr. Choate then proposed that a suita
ble committee be appointed to frame a
constitution and decide upon the powers
and character of the projected court, say
ing he thought it would be well to have
17 judges instead of15. so that the country
representation may be more general. In
conclusion Mr. Choate said:
"It Is six weeks since this conference
first assembled, and there is certainly no
time to lose. We have done much to
regulate war and very little to prevent.
Let us unite on this great pacific measure
and satisfy the world that the second
peace conference really desires that in the
future peace and not war be the normal
rendition of civilized nations."
The general opinion expressed tonight
Is that the real peace conference began
today with the Initiative of the American
delegates, who are praised for their de
termination to carry a logical proposition
that is believed to be the most important
sffort toward the pacification of the
RIOTS AGAINST BLACK MASS
Italians Rise Against Revolting
Rites of Sclcsian Priests.
TURIN, Aug. 1. The anti-clerical riots
which have broken out in Northwestern
Italy are largely a result &f popular ex
citement, following the publication of cer
tain alleged revolting and immoral prac
tices of the Seleslan fathers at Verazze.
This exposure was printed la l'Avoro, and
In it pupils of the school maintained by
the fathers described the rites performed
dally, which they called the "black

were present and which the scholars say
they were forced to attend. The school

A crowd sacked the church at Verazze

Belesians. ' '
ROME, Aug. 1. It is declared in
Catholic circles that the revelations re
garding Immoral practices on the part
of the Seleslan Fathers at Varazje are
greatly exaggerated. They are a out
growth, it is said, of stories that were
circulated a year ago. when a. young
priest named Bertane left the convent.
The non-clerical papers have based
their entire case upon an isolated inci
dent, and pupils of the schools have
been incited to make false confessions.

VIENNA. Aug. 1. The meeting of King
Edward and Emperor Francis Joseph at

Importance. In addition to discussing in
ternational questions, it is stated that
Emperor Francis Joseph will assume the
role of intermediary to bring about a
final reconciliation between King Edward
and Emperor William of Germany, while
the reconcillatory policy will culminate In
an endeavor to establish an entente be

Want Government to Pay Doctors.
LONDON, Aug. 1. In convention at Ex
eter, the British Medical Association has
almost unanimously supported a conten
tion advanced by a member, that sick
people should be treated at public ex
pense. In discussing the idea, the points
were made that the physicians' work is
now done under conditions involving the
petty worries of fee collection, the stress
of competitive commercialism and the
sweating of the profession in the hos
pitals, friendly societies and similar or
ganizations. The increasing number of
cases treated at state aided institutions
was a phase of the movement.

LABOR WAR RAGES IN LODZ
SOCIALISTS FORCE STRIKE AND
ATTACK THE POLICE.
Enforced Suspension of Work Re.
suits in Deadly Battle Barri
cade's Built In Streets.
LODZ, Aug. 1. The city today was
again the scene of a strike movement ac
companied by vlolenoe, disorder and
death. Troops yesterday encountered the
strikers in the center of town and 30 men
were killed or wounded in this fight alone.
Business is at a standstill. In spite of
aggressive stands taken by the authori
ties, the disorders recommenced early to
day. The strike is serious. It would ap
pear to be the beginning of a big labor
war, and the workmen's unions are pre
pared for a long struggle. The Immediate
cause of the outbreak yesterday was the
course pursued by the police during the
last eight dayj in making a large num
ber of arrests in attempts to break up
the unions. The principal Socialist lead
ers have been thrown Into Jail. The po
lice have been so energetic in their meas
ures against the unions' that they have
united the Socialists, the Polish Socialists
and the Nationalist parties, which, up to
the present time have been waging a.
merciless-war, accompanied by daily mur
ders and outrages among themselves.
A general strike has been declared and
the Social Democrats and the Polish So
cialists have called out 32,000 men. The
Nationalists have been forced to Join the
committee of the Amalgamated Unions.
The committee has ordered that all busi
ness in Lodz cease. Stores have been told
to close, and the power-house of the
electric traction system has been shut
down. The committee is enforcing its
orders with armed men and several shop
keepers who refused to shut up have been
Yesterday bands of laborers were sent
out in the city to wreck street cars. This
they did In a number of cases, and later
they used the cars as barricades from
which to stone the police. During the
calling out of the strikers one factory
man and two shopkeepers were killed and
two laborers were mortally wounded. The
disorders grew as the day wore on. At
3 o'clock In the afternoon the military
forces were mobilized, but there was no
engagement with the workmen until
o'clock last night. At this time the op
posing forces came together in the center
of the town. The fighting was serious
and prolonged.- The workmen fired sev
eral hundred shots from automatic pis
tols and did not disperse until they had
been' charged by the cavalry. At least 30
men were killed or wounded. Ambulances
at once cleared the streets of the dead
bodies. Among the dead is a German sub
ject. The town was patrolled last night by
detachments of Cossacks and dragoons.
This morning the troops started the elec
tric cars again, but the passengers on
board were attacked by gangs of work
men and a number of them were wounded.
The strikers today began to attempt to
force a cessation of work.
SALT LAKE MAN HELD UP

Other Throttles Him.
John Squires, a recent arrival from
Salt Lake City, was held up and robbed
of $29 and some small change at Union
avenue and. East Morrison street about
12:20 o'clock this morning.
Mr. Squires had alighted from an
Oregon City car. and was waiting for

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 1. Compara
tively rapid progress was made on this
first day of the trial of Theodore V.
Halsey for the alleged bribery of Super
visor I.onergan. Halsey, as former
agent of the Pacific States Telephone &
Telegraph Company, is the second of the
public utilities corporation men to be
brought to the bar by the bribery graft
prosecution and the Indictment on whlcTi
he went to trial today Is the first of 13
similar ones that have been returned
Forty-eight veniremen were examined
during the day, and of these the follow
ing nine withstood the qualification tests
and were accepted, subject to peremp
tory challenge by either side, ten peremp
torles resting with the defense and five
with the prosecution: Charles W. Pope,
real estate dealer; Edwin Bonnell, cash
ier and secretary of a loan society:
Frank Lutley, grocer; James H. Ruther
ford, grain merchant; James C. Brown,
retired mining engineer; Joseph C. Peters,
feed dealer; Andrew N. Lunden, hotel
butcher: O. C. Baldwin, real estate deal

The first three veniremen to be exam

and Frank Keyes, were excused by con
sent for confessed bias.
Lawyers Out In Force.
District Attorney Langdon conducted
the examinations for the prosecution. He
Is supported by Special Counsel Hiram
Johnson and Assistant District Attorney
William Hoff Cook. Bert Schlesslnger ex
amined for the defense. With him at the
counsel table in Halsey's behalf are Del
phin M. Delmas and Henry H. McPike.
If Judge Lawlor overrules the objection
of the defense to the commencement of
Louis Glass new trial next Monday and
requires it to go on at that time, Mr.
Delmas will probably withdraw tempo
rarily from the Halsey case In order to
take part in the defense of Glass.
The first juror to pass the qualification
test and retain his seat In the box subject
to peremptory challenge this morning,
was Charles W. Pope, a real estate deal
er. In view of an editorial attack by a
San Francisco morning paper on the five
members of the Glass jury who voted for
acquittal, Mr. Pope was especially asked
by Halsey's counsel whether fear of
newspaper attack would make him hesi
tate to acquit if the evidence warranted.
His. emphatic declaration that it would
not was seemingly satisfactory to the de
fense.' Austin J. Green, Thomas WV Ford and
George Williams, successively challenged
for cause, were excused.
How Talesmen View Case.
Frank Gehrette, a merchant, confessed
to bias and was excused.
Edwin Bonnell, cashier and secretary of
the Savings & Loan Association, satisfied
the defense in saying that he presumed
by the returning of the indictment that
the crime of bribery had been committed,
but he would not convict Halsey on the
mere fact of his indictment. He would
require the prosecution to prove the de
Frank Lutty, clerk, averred that
there is not money enough in San Fran
cisco to influence his vote one way or
the other, but on account of his em
ployers' Interests he would rather not
serve. He was accepted.
Timothy O'Brien, warehouseman, and
Sigmund Strassburger, merchant, de
clared each that his opinion was so
fixed that no amount of evidence could
change it. Both were excused by con
sent. This exhausted the panel and nine
more veniremen were called to fill the
box after the court had deferred un
willingly to the agreement of opposing
counsel that no peremntory challenges
should be interposed until the box
should e filled by 12 men qualified as
Juror With Mind of Own.
James Rutherford said that ordin
arily hp would hold the defendant in
nocent until proved guilty and follow
the instructions of the court, "unless
the law as given by the court was so
covered up by technicalities that It be
indistinct and unreliable. "In that
event," said he, "I would cast the law
aside and be guided solely by my own
Sense of Justice."
"Do you consent to the excusing of
the Juror?" asked Mr. Johnson.
"By no means," replied Mr. Schles
slnger. "He has not by his answers
At the close of the cross-examination
by the defense Mr. Rutherford said
that, if the judge's instructions did not
agree with his own ideas of Justice,
he would Ignore them and "figure out
the case." for himself. '
"We cannot deny the challenge,"- said
Mr. Schlesslnger. I
"No challenge was interposed by us."
snapped Mr. Johnson. "You liked this
juror because you said he would do
substantial Justice; all right, then we'll
Mr. Rutherford was passed for cause.
Too Close to the Accused.
Charles C, Moore, engaged in the en
gineering business, a director of the
Central Trust Company and an asso
ciate of President Henry T. Scott, of
the Pacific States Telephone & Tele
graph Company In the conduct of the
Mechanics Savings Bank, confessed to
a prejudicial opinion and was excused.
Moses Denenbaum, retired merchant,
answered all questions satisfactorily
and retained his seat.
The attorneys for Halsey appeared
before the Supreme Court at 12:30 P. M.
and presented an application for a writ
of prohibition. The Judges took It un

. Within a few days quite a number of the

I take opportunity to say what my position
On November, 7. 1806. the several directors
of the company held shares therein as follows:
John J. Astor. "000; John W. Auchlncloss, 600;
Charles M. Beach, BOO; J. W. Cutting,' 300;

body, 600: Cornelius Vandcrbllt. 148; John C.
Welling. 200; total, 32.430. So far as I know,
the holdings of the others have not changed.
The directors whose terms expire this Autumn
are Mr. Astor, Mr. Harriman and myself. A
fourth director will have to be elected by the
stockholder for a term jyt one year In the
place of Mr. Welling, deceased.
I long since readied the conclusion that,
although I owe a great deal to the stockhold
ers for the trust which, they had for more
than 20 years Imposed in me as the holder of
their proxies, they could not ask me to offer
myself as a candidate for re-election at -this
time, .nor am I disposed to make any efforts
to procure proxies. In view of the letters and
proxies which have already reached me with
out solicitation on my part, I am bound, if
possible, to attend the meeting, and shall,
after hearing what may be brought out there,
vote my own shares and such proxies as may
be confide to me In the best interests of the
owners of the whole capital stock.

Heretofore, professional bondsmen

An Interesting development tonight
was the discovery that the coming to
