XEW YORK, March 3.-The World
today says:
A secret political conference was be

of J. G. Phelps Stoke, Xoroton Point.
Conn. It will last four day. During

Invitations to the conference were

the conference last nMit, but more me
I on the wav. Anions; those coni-picuou
j lust, beside Mr, Stoke, was hi broth-
1 r 111 law, Kobfit Hunter, who has
pronounced ideas about civic affair.
Mr. Hunter ha been styled a social
i-i. but 1ms never ascknovv hedged him
self a an out and out follower of so
cialism. Mr. Stoke, who is said to have at
tended the issuing of the invitation
received, beide Mft Hunter, several
J other New York men who are said to
lie avowed socialists and they took a
prominent part in the conference. Who
theo men were Mr. Stokes, when inter
viewed, refused to say.
"1 have a few gentlemen at my house
and we are discussing matters of inter
est to all voters," he said. "We are tak
ing up important public question.
That is al I caiv to say."
Mr. Stokes begged to I excused when
asked if mt of the conferee were not
socialists and if the gathering would
not discuss some means of organizing
the socialist party on a more vigorous
lighting basis. He said he was not at
liberty to answer any such question "as
the gentlemen present would not
like it."
Mr. Stokes who was the municipal
ownership candidate at the last election
for president of the board of aldermen,
refused to talk about the possibility of
a coalition between the municipal own
ership party and the socialists in the
coming gubernatorial campaign as a re
sult of the conference.
We are talking of things that inter
e-t every citizen and we shall try to
keep our deliberations secret," was all
he would sav.
The real business of the conference, it
is said, will begin today upon the ar
rival of Joseph Medill Patterson who
resigned yesterday as eommi-sioner of
public works of Chicago.

Two Thousand Jews Who Fled From

XKU" Y011K, March 3. Stories of
e-cape from the Kussian frontier and
of mas-acres alleged to have been com
mitted in the Moscow cellars is the re
cent outbreak were told here today by
Ku-ian refug es. These stories came
from s, ne of the 2000 Russian Jews
who arrived here yesterday on the
steamer Pennsylvania from Hamburg,
and who parsed the immigration inspec
tion today.
Rebecca Isaacs, 15 years old, one of
the refugees from Moscow, says that
-he was the la-t of a family of 12, and
that her father, mother, brothers and
sisters were killed by soldiers. She said !
for two days she was hidden in a dark
coiner of the cellar in her home when
soldiers entered at intervals. The other
members of the family, she said, were
found and killed, some of them so near
her that she heard their unavailing cries
for mercy. She now is on her way to

for !oal needs, the le-t apples were
grown in orchards in iu-'hii Xew York;
but, today, as the rt-u!t of an increas

is the same with celery. Years ago Xew

however the best spciminr-s of this
vegetable come from f'alitomia. Urg

awarded new prizes. So it is with orange-.
Formerly those from California
and Florida were the favorites in the
Xew Yoi'k market. Today the most
lu-ojous -arnples of this finit old here
come from the irrigated lands reclaim
ed from the de-crt territory of Arizona.
Popular demand, too, has been respon
sible for the production of native
pineapples, grown in Florida, and native
figs, the product of rich Texas fields.
There is an interesting little story
behind the fact that gradually the
American table is being supplied by the
native products; that not only every
necessity but al-o every delicacy is
gradually becoming indigenous; and
that whereas once when a thing was out
of season it was out of the market,
today, particularly in Xew York, where
tastes are so cosmopolitan and purses
aro so fat, practically everything is
in season all the year round. Largely re
