The Mitchel administration is pow-rless to remove Colonel James D. Bell as Assistant Corporation Counsel in charge of Brooklyn because he is a Teteran. That is the real reason why Corporation Counsel Polk rtoea not appoint a successor to the Kings County Democratic Chairman as head of the Brooklyn office of the Law Department, according to information that came today from a high source in the city administration. Polk, it is said, has been advised that, If he removes Colonel Bell summarily, a review of the removal in the courts is almost sure to result in his reinstatement. The Corporation Counsel, since receiving that advice, has considered other measures.

It was learned today that a short time ago he sent an emissary to Colonel Bell In an effort to arrange a retirement, but the mission was unsuccessful. Colonel Bell, it is understood, is Wary of any retirement proposition because he thinks it lays him open to summary retirement. The law provides that veterans may be retired on half salary at the end of twenty years en-vice. Colonel Hell is a veteran of the Civil War and has been in the service of the city twenty years, but not twenty consecutive years, and this is the hitch that might upset the pen- eion plan, according to some of the colonel's friends. lie has been continuously in the Corporation Counsel's otlice only ten years, having been appointed by Mayor Van Wyck, In January, 1904.

It' he should request retirement at the suggestion of Mr. Polk, the question has been raised as to whether or not this act in itself would not act as a waiver of any rights to his present place he might have as a veteran. Thus it is that while Corporation Counsel Polk would like to name t-omeone for Colonel Bell's $10,000 place in the Brooklyn otlice of the Law Department, he fears to take such action and is holding up the matter, waiting for "something to happen." That something is either a letter of resignation from Mr. Bell or hts application for retirement. Today it was learned that there is little chance of either happening, and as a reseult Colonel Bell may continue indefinitely to be the Assistant Corporation Counsel in charge of Brooklyn.

FOUR RESCUED AT CONEY Policeman Saves Two, and Athlete Gets Two Others. Mounted Policeman James Smith, without waiting to unbuckle his puttees and discarding nothing save his uniform cap, leaped into the ocean from the rocks at the foot of the Coney Island Concourse and after a heroic struggle rescued two persons from drowning today. The rescue was all the more thrilling because it was made just after a downpour of heavy rain and heavy swells were rolling upon the beach. In the sight of thousands, many of whom were bathers, Smith handicapped by his cumbersome equipment, swam out twice, battling with the breakers and carried in a woman first and then a man. Finishing the second trip he was completely exhausted, and had to be removed to the Coney Hospital in on umLulance.

A fifth person, a woman, who was in distress, made her way to shore unassisted. NEW LOOP IN USE Long-Sought Improvement In. augurated Today, The loop connecting the Myrtle avenue and Broadway systems was inaugurated early to'-day.

This is the Improvement that the residents of Ridgewood and East New York have sought for the past two years. The elevated road on Myrtle avenue has been raised and it is now possible for the trains on both lines to switch to either road without delay. There was some confusion over the fact that a number of passengers were not aware of the fact that between Wyckoff and Park avenues the elevated trains did not make any stops. One of the organizations that had Inaugurated the fight for the Improvement is the Ridgewond Board of Trade. Its president, Bernard Ruoff, and a big delegation of members were on hand during the morning to observe the working of the new loop.

The congestion at this point will be greatly relieved under the new plan. NO -DOCTOR; BABY DIES Mother in Poverty Buries Child in Cellar.

ADJOrRNMENT UNTIL AUG.

5. Keith, His Wife and His Counsel on Band, With Six Other Witnesses. Eagle Bureau, 608 Fourteenth Street. Washington, July 29 Investigation of the charges filed against Henry P. Keith of Nassau County.

President Wilson's nominee for internal revenue collector in the Brooklyn District, was postponed for one week when the subcommittee of tho Senate Finance Com- mitteee met this morning, owing to the absence of former Senator J. L. Long, the maker of the charges, and all the anti-Keith witnesses. Senator Thomas, chairman of the sub-committee, after conferring with bis colleagues, said the committee did not care 10 go ahead with Mr. Keith's sld of the controversy in the absence of any representatives on the other side.

Mr. Keith was present, with his attorney, Stuart Gibboney of New York. Mrs. Keith, who figures In the charges as the indorser of two of the checks alleged to have been paid to Keith in part payment for the nomination for supervisor of Hempstead, which went to Paul F. Lindner, was also on band.

Other witnesses for Keith ready to testify were Henry S. Orr, chairman of the Democratic Town Committee of Hempstead: Paul W. F. Lindner, the defeated candidate; State Senator Thomas H. O'Keefe, who beat Long for renomination; Thomas K.

Box, member of the town committee; Ar thur W. Brierly, who was offered the supervlsorship nomination and refused and Bertram Gardiner, opposition Democratic leader to Keith In Hemp who appears voluntarily as a witness to Keith's character. Senator Thomas called for some rep resentative of the anti-Keith side when the committee met. There was an explanation from Frank Oliver, private secretary to Senator Gorman. Ml.

Oliver said that Senator OGormsn, through whose otlice the charges against Keith were filed with the Sen ate, had been notified by for mer Senator Long tnat ne would require a few days in order to got his witnesses in Washington. Some of these witnesses were on vacation, he said, while others were not volunteers. Long declared that he did not Intend to let the matter go by default, and usked for an udjuuriiment of the hearing. Mr. Gibboaey expressed bis anxiety to gn ahead at once, but the commit tee decided to give Long an opportun ity heard in support or Ms charges and adjourned the hearing until Wednesday of next week at 10 lock.

Mr. Gibboney filed with the commit tee a number of affidavits, supporting Keiths denial of the charges, 'among them those from the three men who loaned money to Lindner, and whose checks were subsequently indorsed by Keith and Mrs. Keith. In these air. davits the declaration is made that the money thus loaned constituted volun tary campaign cc.itrimiticns.

Mr. tiihhonev explained that his cli ent was anxious to get the case cleared up becnuse of the approach or tne primaries, in which Keith was again a candidate for Democratic State com mitteeman. He asked that the committee Issue subpenus for George F. Spinney and Girdell V. Brower, who made affidavits supporting the charges.

Senator Thomas said the committee would consult before it issued any sub-ne rifles. Representative mmrop nruwn, Keith's sponsor at the White House, reached Washington last night from Canada where he was forced to interrupt a fishing trip by news that his candidate was under fire from the op position. A telegram reached Mr. Brown somewnere oui in me wooas ui the Gaspe Peninsula. Mr.

Murphy, who was trying to discredit the man who had fought him successfully in Nassau County. CALLS KEITH "UNFITTED" Nassau County Association Taboos Him for Collector. The board of managers of the Nassau County Association held a meeting last night at the home of Berk-man Winthrop, president, and unanimously declared that In the opinion of the board Henry P. Keith, recommended for nomination for the office of collector of Internal revenue for Brooklyn, was unfitted for the position, and the secretary of the Nassau County Association was authorized to lay before the President of the United States and the Finance Committee of the Senate of the United States the facts bearing on the matter.

The resolution went on to say: 'The association was formed for the purposes of promoting the welfare of the citizens and residents of Nassau County, and the Improvement of social and political conditions therein, and while the Nassau County Associa tion Is unwilling to take any action which might be construed to indicate an intention on Its part to interfere In partisan politics, the association Is, nevertheless, deeply concerned with the character and qualifications. though not the political adulations, of the person having official relations with the citizens and residents of Nas sau County, and as the County of Nas hau forms a part of the First Internal Revenue District of the State of New York, the character and qualifications of the collector of internal revenue ap pointed for this district are matters nf vital Importance to the citizens and residents of this county." 13 POTASH MINERS KILLED.

Cassel, Germany, July 29 Twelve potash miners were blown to pieces to day by th explosion of eighty pounds of dynamite, while they were sinking a shaft In the Krajail Mine, near here it OF RUSSIA since been found to be Involved In tho mutter. "The Austrian Emperor has stert lastly been one of tho foremost expo nents of pcucn in Europe, but thinKS hud come tu such a pass that Austria could no lonucr avoio a war without sacrlllclng her honor.

If Austria had lint miule war now she would have had tu made war tomorrow. "1 believe that Russia, octlmt nut di redly, but covertly, has stirred up tb Servians. She wants to get un outlet to the Aegean nnd tho Mediterranean which, would, bo of immense, benefit her trade, but hick of It all sho hopes some day to make Servln Russian tor ritory. Little Servla would never have acted without her strong support. The vice consul said that It was ab surd to think that Bosnia and Herzegovina wanted to be free and that a matter of fact only 4ft per cent, of the inhabitants of those two Austrian provinces were Servians, the great majority being Catholic Croatians and Mohammedans.

"When these two provinces were an pcxted," he explained, 'It was with the consent of all the powers and they were signatories to the treaty of '78 under which that annexation took place. "Thnt territory has never been Servian territory, but Servla. has sought to include It within a Servla. These two provinces enjoy ab solute autonomy. They have their own schools, their own Parliament, their own Constitution, and there li; absolute equality In mutters of religion.

Their Independence has not been Interfered with or curtailed in any way. We do not even speak of them as part of Austro-Hungary, but we say Austria, Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Austria Harassed Into Actnnii, Declares Vice Consul. "Austria has been harassed nnd harassed until she could stand It no longer. She has had to deal with a band of murderers and nssasslns.

I would like to call your attention to the fact that ill all Servian history not one ruler, save only one, tins died a natural death. They'hnvj all been assassinated. The one who did die natural death did so only because he fled to Hungary and requested fluit his body be not removed to Servla, as he feared It would be molested. He was King Milan, who abdicated In favor of Alexander and Druga, who were killed. "If Austria's Idea hud been a war of conouest and the seizure of Slav territory, why did she not do It when Russia was engaged In the Japanese War and afterward when, following the Russian revolution, Russia was very weak? No, this Is a Just war Austria has been forced to undertake, and she could not have one otherwise." It was announced today that Slavs from fourteen Austrian and Hungarian newspapers In this city had held a meeting and passed resolutions calling mass meeting of protest against what they termed Austria "brutal attitude toward Servln.

The mass meeting will irohnbly bn held on Saturday evening In the Central (jpcru. House, mannai-tnn. There was a great crowd of Russians In front of the Russian Consulate on Washington Square today, but it was denied that nny Russians were applying for passports to go buck to their native country In order to enlist in the army. When Inquiries were made at the Consulate to discover what the men in the street were tehre for the unswer was that they only represented a day's work at tho Consulate. However, a number of the men, when questioned, said emvhatleally that they were going buck with the expectation of lighting In the Russian Army.

London, July Reports of the mass lng of armies In strategic positions came from all points of Europe today, but no uctual crash of opposing forces was registered.

Baron Rothschild, speaking of th European situation to Interviewer today, said: "I think tho situation looks rather better today, but I do not know personally of any developments. At the same time it looks us If there) were more chance of the war being localized. "Yesterdiy was a blacker day than lay. I think Ih.ngs look a little) brighter. 1 do not quite know why, but I have the eellng they are." Baron Ito.bsclillil then reiterated his opinion that the war would be con fined to Austria-Hungary and Servla.

Diplomats concentrated their attention on efforts to confine the war to Austria und Servla, tho two nations) Immediately concerned In the quarrel, and the attitude of the lerinan and Itussiun Emperors was closely watched, owing to their near illations to tba countries engaged. Premier Asquith referred to the inter national situation In the House of Com mons, but till the Information that ba was able to Impart was contained lu few words, lie said: "The situation at this moment Is ona of extreiim gravity, and 1 can only usefully say that the British (lovernment is not relaxing Its efforts to d' everything in Its power to cireiimscriba the urea of conlliet."

MORE GOLD LEAVING This was another day of turmoil and agitation in financial circles at home and abroad. Before the opening of business all of the exchanges of Europe decldedto either suspend operations altogether or to, so limit them that practically the same result was accomplished.

At London, Paris and Berlin the exchanges remained open, but to all intents and purposes they might as well have been closed. Transactions, except for cash nnd in very small amounts, were discouraged ty the banks, and here in New York was Impossible to secure trustworthy quotations of European sales. Because of the extremely high rates and the uncertainty and feverishness of the market, London equivalents for American securities could not be figured. The one quotation which could, with reasonable accuracy, be obtained, was that of British Consols, and these securities sold at a figure never bofore reached when they touched Trouble in London developed early, nnd tome time before the opening of our market it had been announced that tivo comparatively small brokerage firms had been compelled to suspend. Today was "payday" in the London settlement, and it was reported that the governors of the Stock Exchange had taken steps to suspend nil payments pending a possible improvement In the political situation.

It as known in New York that several London firms had been helped over tha settlement and lute advices stated that no large failures were looked for. On the Continent the bourses at St. Petersburg and Amsterdam were added to the number now closed, and the coffee exchange at Havre also suspended operations. The stock exchanges at Montreal and Toronto, which closed for the afternoon session yesterday, did not open today and aro not expected to resume until the endgof the week, and possibly not until next week. Naturally, this threw the bulk of the liquidation on Now York, and with all of the foreign exchanges either closed or their activity materially curtailed, the market here developed Into the world's rafety valve.

New York, of all the markets of any prominence anywhere, was the only one to maintain open house. Foreign exchange rates, the rates on which nil International transactions are predicated, continued to advance, but quoted prices were purely nominal, as business was limited as to be prac tlcally negative. Cable remittances to London were paid for at the rate of $." the pound sterling nnd cable francs were quoted at 4 francs 97 centimes per dollar. Both rates are by far the highest that have ever been seen in the history of International finance. Engagements of $.1,000,000 gold for export on Friday were announced up to o'clock, despite the almost prohibitive insurance rates now being demanded by the underwriters.

War risks are being talked of, but American mnrine underwriters do not sell this form of Insurance, nnd at Lloyd's In London the rates are high as to be almost out of the ques tlon. One foreign exchange expert to day estimated that It would cost nearly $5,000 per $1,00,000 gold to insure against ordinary hazards, and with the added war risk attached. However, at present exchange rates It Is thought that the forward movement of gold will have to continue. Owing to the unusual conditions pervading the HtoCK market because of the European war situation, members of the New York Coffee Exchange voted authority to their board of man agers to suspend trading at any time it felt warranted in so doing. With this Hiilhorilv the board may stop tmdinar on the Coffee Exchange if matters take a panicky complexion The stock market here broke badly at the opening, and new low records were established.

Shortly after the tart there was a determined rally, and by the end of the Hist hour the maiket was at about the level of last night's eloslnir. with some active shares slight ly higher. As there was no buying nnwer nf consequence after the rally the market again sold off. and at no time was there what could be called real Btrenath. Wheat prices at Chicago opened from 1 A cents to 2 cents a bushel be low what thev nan ciosea at last nleht.

and on the belief which was ex pressed earlv In the day that the Euro pean trouble would localize conditions in the wheat pit. were noi nearly so unsettled as they were yesterday, Prices here broke 4 cents. Cotton was not oarticularlv artlve. Coffee, In sympathy with the Havre market, was weak, and the governors or me local coffee board considered closing. No action was taken, however, up to an early hour In the afternoon.

At the Stock Exchange nothing was officially said regarding a suspension of busi ness, and several prominent governors stated that they believed nothing along this line would be none.

CRONIN BLAMES McCOOEY Says He Had Voorhis Remove Election Officials.

"McCooey," continued Cronln, "then brought pressure to bear upon Superintendent Voorhis and had him remove three deputy superintendents of elections whose appointments had been obtained through Hayes and Kearney. McCooey did this to spite Hayes and Kearney. He wanted to take all prestige and patronage away from them and he had Voorhis remove them."

He said that his heart went out to the poor people of I hi' town.

and that most of the stuff he stole he gave to them. "The pitiful stories of women who told me tht-t they were unable to se cure work to ear money to pay rent and other such woes touched my heart." said Peterson. "On severs occasions upon hearing these tales I committed a burglary and gave the needy the loot, not telling them where I not It. Whenever I saw a poor man or woman in distress, regardless of color or cred, I saw to it that they worn provided for. It was simply case of where I stole from the rich to heln the Door."

Cllr A4T. 400 EAGER PATRIOTS, AUSTRIAN AND SERB, SAIL ON LA SAVOIE Leave Mine Camps and Pay Own Passage to Serve Under Their Flags. CONSl LATES ARE BESIEGED. Servln, Hailed Covertly by Russia, War Says Austrian Vice Consul.

On La Savole of the French Line. which sailed today for Havre, there were more than 400 Austrians, Hungarians and Serin; as passengers in the steerage. While there was no way of telling how many of them were hastening to their nutive land because of the outbreak of hostilities between Austria and Servla, officers of the line who had charge of the steer age contingent said that they believed them to he tn the majority. Most of the passengers had left their families behind. The bulk of the men were brawny miners from camps In the West, and one large group hailed from the mines of Colorado.

They were all paying their own way. On the pier was an ex-United States soldier, a Montenegrin. He declined to give his name, but he said that he expected to go back soon to take up arms, and that Montenegro would cast her lot with Servla. He explained that there are very few of the people of his little country In the United States: "Most of them went off to the Lai-Kan war and they never came back," he said. At the Servian Consulate on West Twenty-second street, Manhattan, messages were Btlll being received and men were calling individually to find out If there was any need of their services, and what word had been received from the seat of trouble.

There has been a dearth of messages from Servla, it was explained. Paul H. I'avlovltch, Secretary of the Serb-American Allance, said: "The Servian (lovernment never calls for Its reservists. There Is a provision In the military law which states that when a mobilization of troops is ordered every Servian should know his duly and act accordingly. It remains for the reservist to show his patriotism.

"There are relatively few Serbs from Servla here, but there are many Aus trian Serbs nnd they are asking us to help them Join the Servian Army. We don't know Just what to tell them, as they are not our subjects save to act as It seems advisable." Consulates Are Besieged by Patriots Eager to Sail. At the Austrian Consulate, 24 State street, there was a great press of men Inquiring when they could get passage for the other side.

"We don't know yet," ho continued, "how ninny corps have been mobilized and how muny reservists In tbls coun try are Involved In the mobilization.
