The New York Times. TANGIER, Morocco, May 25,—I have received letters from Mr. Peidicaris and the brigand Raisuli.  Mr. Perdicaris states that he and Mr. Varley are well treated, while Raisuli assures me that he is doing everything possible to make his prisoners comforta-ble.  Mr. Perdicaris writes:  “ We are both in good health. Raisuli does his best for us. It is very encouraging to know that you and other friends  are acting on our behalf.  “I do not know what dema,nds Raisuli is making, but he ask# nothing peison ally of us, and my impression is that he wishes to make it a purely political business and means that no harm shall come to us.”  In another letter Mr. Perdicaris states that he~and Mr. Varley are confined in one room and only allowed out a short  time in the evenings.  Mr. Ferdicaris’s .pluck is ' much ad-. mired. He is elderly and his health is delicate. It is sincerely and universally hoped that the American Government will not treat the outrage with the same apathy as has been exhibited by European powers in regard to similar^ occurrences.    I  American ships were expected before  now, and their non-arrival increases the feeling of insecurity here.

Donald, a Kew York banker, who is attending the meeting of the Missouri Bankers’ Association, in discussing President Roosevelt and the financial outlook here to-day said that President Roosevelt had assured the  bankers of the country that he would abide by whatever policy they decided  was best.

The Tyner-Barrett case was begun on May 2, and has been before the court nineteen full days. A great mass of testimony was offered. The prosecution brought forward an army of witnesses, a majority of whom were former officers of bond investment companies, through which Harrison J. Barrett, Tyner’s nephew,  was an ^ d ."J have profited after he left the Post Office Department by practicing before his uncle, , who remained in the department.  The principal arguments made ^-йау were by A. S. Worthington, for the defense, and Major Holmes Conrad, spec.al counsel for the Government, for the Prosecution. The latter told the jury that the  had no right to  ent « rtai f/ y ^ P ^ y ^i- r ett Tyner or the young wife of Mr. Barrett.  who was a witness in the defendant 3 be-  Judge Pritchard, in his charge t the jury, emphasized the fact that the jury should not be influenced by P r0 ^ u<3i ^ ™ the one hand or sympathy on-the othe., and said the case should be tried solely on its merits and without regard to whai effect the verdict might have on the public  mind.    -    I  had ordered a general strike along the eii- j destroyed, about tire system of the company, the latter s Oi- , ficials made it plain that they considered , ure they had- beaten the strikers to a standstill.  On Tuesday Curran, it was generally reported, said that he had sent telegrams to every New Haven station from here to Boston, calling out on strike all the members of his union. At the Clarendon Hole  he said yesterday:  “ I never said I sent out an order for a general strike. To-day I have been trying . to keep the men from striking along the line, but at Providence and Fall River some of them have quit their jobs, despite my efforts. I have had a conference with Ralph M. Easley, Secretary of the National Civic Federation, which will try to effect a settlement.  Capt. Miller, after s $aying that he had replaced both striking freight handlers and striking firemen, stated that the olfer of the Civic Federation to mediate had been received. He had replied that no conference with the strikers would be granted, as it was useless.  Apropos of the Civic Federation’s attitude. Curran said that Charles A. Moore, the capitalist, was a Federationist who would exert influencp to make Capt. Miller give way to the strikers. Mr. Moore, said Curran, was a stockholder in the New Haven Road, as well as a member of the Federation. Then Curran winked knowingly, adding:  “ He's higher than Miller, you can bet  u.

While no instructions were given, the resolutions recited that at the present time Judge Alton B.

He said the New Haven Road might discharge him from the General Managership, but until then it would no: yield to the strikers.  The condition of the strike to-day, in brief, is as follows: The New Haven Railroad, having lost its old force of about 350 freight handlers from its New l r ork piers, has substituted the same number of nonunion laborers, whom it is boarding on the piers or transporting to and from the piers on carefully guarded tugs. The company has lost several hundreds of firemen and oilers from its boats around these watgjrs, possibly ks manyasTdO, including some from it« big Sound boats, but it has filled their places in a graatvmeasure, and managed to transfer up and down the rivers yesterday many of its freight cars.  The striking freight handlers and firemen, having found that they could not get the teamsters to help them, are playing what Mr. Curran calls a waiting game.  Along both waterfronts of the .city many policemen continued tb keep guard yesterday. There w r as no sign of violence from the groups of strikers congregated on all  1  neighboring corners. All the boats that ar-i rived or departed on the different New Haven Sound lines were loaded or unloaded without difficulty.  After a meeting of strikers at Hudson Hall, in Spring Street, Agent Healy of the Freight Handlers said the order for a general strike had been sent out by President Curran. He was sure it had been sent. He was surprised to hear that Mr. Curran had denied having sent it. At the offices of the company it was stated that Mr. Curran had sent the orders, but that the men had refused to strike. Dispatches from various Eastern points bore out the company’s to  and a Director of the Auditorium and j Theatre Company, a concern organized • about a year ago for the promotion and building of the, big new seven-story build-lijjl at Seventh Avenue and One Hundred and Twentv-sixth Street.  The shooting occurred at 4:30 o’clock in the office of Lawyer Harry Van Ness Philips on the seventh floor of the Equitable Building, at 120 Broadway. Mr. Philips’s office Is one of a suite of offices on that floor, the principal one being oc- j   thp ar _ i cupied by J.

[ Levy was thirty-five years old, and un-  ?  married. He was a son of H M. Levy, and j lived with his parents at 246 West One j Hundred and Thirty-eighth Street.  A conference had just taken place at the  }  office of Lawyer Koones, which adjoins j that of Philips, between Mr. Koones and i Levy’s attorneys. J. F. Dorthy and H. C. Mason of 132 Nassau Street; Lawyer Howard H. Morse of Tarrvtown, who had formerly co-operated with Koones, was also present. The purpose of this conference was to secure for Lavy a cash loan of $450,000, according to Lawyer Koones. Lawyer Dorthy says the loan was for $30,000, and that terms had been reached which were entirely satisfactory to: his client whereby the loan was to be for one year.

LONDON, May 26.—The Standard publish es-a dispatch from a Russian correspondent in whom the paper says it places great j confidence containing most sensational statements regarding the alarming condi tion of Russia as the outcome of the war.  The correspondent asserts that disturb ances in various cities have been followed by wholesale hangings without any civil trial.  It is stated- that 600 persons have been hanged in Warsaw alone, and that many others have been hanged in Cronstadt and Moscow. At the latter place the troops buried eighty coffins containing the bodies of those who had been hanged. The bodies were buried secretly, in the dead of night« presumably in the woods.  ■ This correspondent asserts that the Wc.r ‘ has resulted in the utter paralysis of all i business, and says that even the most ! sober-minded are drawing ominous conclusions from the significant fact that regiments stationed in European Russia have been retained in their places, and that only  reservists have been mobilized for the  front.

Rushing  Probable Representations to Russia on Her Recklessness—Sir John Mc-Donell Says It Might Justify Intervention.  ■  .Special Cable to THE N'KW YORK TIME*.  Copyright, 1904, The New York Times,  LONDON, May 25,—The St. James'* Gazette publishes a St. Petersburg dispatch which has an important bearing on the discussion that has arisen out of the discovery by the wireless telegraph dispatch boat Halmun, in the service of The London Times and The New York Times, of two floating Russian mine* near Wei-hai-Wei and more than 100 miles from Pert Arthur, and the discovery by other vessels of twenty-one similar mines in various parts of the Gulf of Pe-chi-Li and the Yellow Sea.  The St. James’s Gazette dispatch states that at the time when it was supposed the Japanese had laid floating mines in the roadstead of Port Arthur the Russian Minister of the Interior, M. de Plehye, protested against the alleged action.  In an official communication issued privately the Minister said:  “The question is an international one, for the peril is shared by all, and the wholesale scattering of these engines of destruction at points where they may easily drift Into thejjath of the marine commerce of the world, to the common danger, can in nowise be regarded as admissible.  “Indeed, if proper measures are not j taken, the civilization of Japan, which has begun by devoting its primary attention to the uses ■'of lyddite and dynamite. may yet cost Europe dear.'*  The SL James’s Gazette understands that the British Government is making inquiries regarding the extent of the danger from Russian mines in the Yellow Sea, and that in case it is convinced that tbe vessels of neutrals are menaced it wilLmake suitable representations to the offending combatant.  ep guaru ycaiei- near Prospect Street, and not    ^    ,    ,    .     an( j  There was no sign of violence from from the places where the daug  Pptprson ' }  wpn ’  out> An  instant later the shot was  At the Adams Express piers in Jersey City yesterday it was    said that 200 cars had  been ferried each    way by the aid of non  union firemen.
