to Be Offered Promptly.
NEW YORK, Nov. 21. Future ex
Presidents of the United States are to
be pensioned in the sum of 125,000 an
Dually by action of the Carnegie Cor
poration of New York .today. The
grant is provided for with the idea of
enabling former Executives of the Na
tion to devote their unique knowledge
grained In public affairs to the public
good, free from pecuniary care. A
similar amount is to be paid widows
of ex-Presidents as long: as they re
main unmarried.
The pensions are to be promptly of
fered to the ex-Presidents or their
widows, so that no application will be
required from them. Payment is to be
continued so long: as the recipients "re
main unprovided for by the Govern
Meeting" Held at Carnegie Home.
The announcement followed the sec
ond annual meeting: of the corpora
tion held at the 'residence of Andrew
Carnegie here.
Five of the eight trustees are the
beads of the five institutions which
Mr. Carnegie has founded the Car
negie Endowment for International
Peace. Ellhu Root, president: the Car
negie Foundation for the Advancement
of Teaching, Henry S. Prltchett, presi
dent; the Carnegie Institution of Wash
ington. Robert S. Woodward, presi
dent: Carnegie Hero Fund Commission,
Charles I Taylor, president; Carnegie
Institute of Pittsburg. William M.
Frew, president. The successors of the
five men become ex-officlo trustees of
the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
In addition there are three life trus
tees. The trustees authorized this state
ment of the corporation's aims:
Total f 913S.000.0OO Transferred.
"A total of I12S.000.000 in securities
has thus far been transferred to the
corporation which will carry on the
various works In which Mr. Carnegie
had been engaged and such others as
be may from time to time think it ad
visable to establish.
"Mr. Carnegie believes he has taken
the surest means of securing for the
future a body of the best possible trus
tees. The heads of the institutions
must inevitably be men of high moral
and intellectual standing. They are
empowered by a two-thirds vote to
modify or discontinue any branch of
the service which in their Judgment
has become Inadvisable or unnecessary.
or If better use can be made of the
funds, and also to adopt from time to
time such work as by them may be
deemed most desirable for the wants
of the age. so that from age to age
the fund may be expended upon the
most profitable work, whether that be
the promotion of new ideas or the de
velopment of those of the day."
Pension Plan Paramount.
The trustees took under considera
tion a number of matters directly in
their keeping and concerning the de
tails of which no announcement was
made, but the principal one to be
passed on was the pension plan for
ex-Presidents of the United States and
their widows. The official announce
ment covering the matter follows:
"Provision has been made through
this corporation for a pension for each
future ex-President and his unmarried
widow of twenty-five thousand dollars
(125.000) per year as long as they re
main unprovided for by the Nation,
that they may be able to spend the
latter part of their lives devoting taelr
unique knowledge gained of public af
fairs to the public good free from pe
cuniary cares. These pensions will be
promptly offered to the ex-Presidents
or their widows, so that no application
will be required from them."

Hospital Bars Are Weak.
I.OS ANGELES, Nov. 21.-CarI Rie
delbach, who Invaded , Central Police
Station Tuesday with an Infernal ma
chine, was arraigned In the MunlclpI
Court today and charged with a vio
lation of that section of the penal code
which prohibits the placing of dyna
mite In any place where human be
ings congregate, with malicious pur
pose to kill or malm.
The arraignment was the result of
s decision on the part of the author
ities that none of the state hospitals

Dutch Treasnre, In American Home
for 200 Years, Finally Goes to
English Museum.
MONTEREY, Cal., Nov. 21. (Spe
cial.) A painting picked up in a Mon
terey second-hand store by the famous
Danish artist. Hugo V. Pederson, for
$15. has been sold to an English mu
seum for 120,000, the picture proving to
be an old Dutch masterpiece.
Pederson succeeded In restoring the
canvas, of which he sent descriptions
with photographs to leading art critics,
and in this way made it possible of
identification as one of a period when
Dutch genius did not affix its name,
each painter then having his individual
way of working. The Monterey shop
man purchased the painting from an
old woman with a lot of house furnish
ings, the woman remarking that the
picture had been in the family over 200
years and had been brought to America
from the old country.
A festive gathering In a wooded place
near a village is the motif of the work,
some 60 figures showing in the gay
scene painted in oil on wood. Peder
son has passed two years at Monterey
finishing sketches made In India.

E. McManlgal In December, 1910, went

stroy the Times auxiliary plant,, and,
by "adding a few more to the list of the
dead," to take suspicions off James B.
McNamara, who had killed 21 persons
In the wreck of the Times building
two months before.
McManlgal so testified today at the
"dynamite conspiracy" trial. He named
men other than the McNamaras as
having inspired the second Los Ange
les plot. He said he was prevented
from carrying it out by learlng, on
reaching Los Angeles, that the aux
iliary plant was too well guarded. In
stead, he set a bomb in an Iron works
plant to explode on Christmas day.

on his return East he stopped off at
the Labor Temple in San Francisco
and, on Tveitmoe's being absent, he left
this message with Eugene A. Clancy:
"Tell Tveltmoe his Christmas pres

It was the same "Christmas present,"

moe later referred to in a letter to
Frank M. Ryan, president of the Iron
Workers" Union.
On his return to Indianapolis Mc
Manlgal said he was "called down" . by
J. J. McNamara because not enough
damage had been done at Los Angeles
and John J. proposed to send by ex
press bombs so regulated that . they
would explode when unwrapped, but
McManigal protested, saying the ex
plosions might occur on the train and
kill innocent people.

LONDON, Nov. 21. The formal sus
pension of the Eastern war proved only
for a day. Turkey rejected the Balkan
terms for an armistice apparently bo-
tore the plenipotentiaries had time to

This declaration came as an . utter
surprise and diplomats are not wholly
convinced the Ottoman troops will take
up arms against the cholera-stricken
trenches of Tchatalja.
Bulgarian Demands Extreme.
While the Bulgarian, demands for
Bulgaria Is acting as the mouthpiece
of the allies were extreme, stipulat
ing the surrender of Adrlanople and
Scutari, both of which are making an
historic defense, as well as the cession
of all the territory except a narrow
strip above Constantinople, these con
ditions were advanced as overtures.
In other words, they were apparently
put forward as a basis for negotia
tions. The Porte treated them as an ulti
matum, and this perhaps is the Oriental
method of beginning negotiations de
signed to Induce the enemy further to
show his hand.
Sterner Demands Slay Follow.
A Balkan diplomat in London pointed
out tonight that these terms were sub
mitted merely as an answer to Tur
key's pressing and repeated demands
for an armistice and said: -
"It Is practically certain that their
rejection will result in a more active
and determined resumption of hostili
ties. Probably the allied troops will
now refuse to treat with Turkey until
