before he died the chili called continually for his
mother, and when she was brought to his side
he pleaded with her not to ecold him. The
scene at the hospital was one of the mo3t
pathetic the doctors and nurses have witnessed
in years. More pathetic is the story made by
the fact that less than a year ago the Ganess
beres lost a three-year-old son in a similar
manner in The Bronx. They had moved to
Manhattan, so that their remaining children
might avoid the danger of the trolley cars.
Little Charlie, with an old?r brother and a

MABINI DIES AT MANILA.
Cholera Kills Former Insurgent
Manila. May 14.— Mantni. the former Minister
of Foreign Affairs of the so-called Filipino gov
ernment, died from cholera at midnight. He
was attacked with the disease on Tuesday last.
Since his return from Guam Mabini had lived
in seclusion. Captured correspondence of the
Rizal Province insurgents showed that Mabini
had been in communication with them, but the
letters were not of a seditious nature.
The Filipinos and Americans generally regret
the death of Mabini. but there will be no dem
onstration at his burial on account of the nature
of his disease.
Mabini. who wa at one time president of the
Filipino Supreme Court surrendered to the Ameri
can forces in December. 1899. but he persistently
refused to take the oath of allegiance, and war de

"IT IS TO LAUGH.'
What Philadelphia Thinks of the
|BT TELEGRAPH TO THE nUBTCOtI
Philadelphia. May 14.— T0 sum up the situation
here with reference to the new Salus-Grady
libel law in a single sentence. "It is to laugh."
The Governor hoped, if the words of Charles
Emory Smith in -The Fress" accurately de
scribe his Intentions, to head off the uncom
fortable and pointed cartoons that depicted him
and his cousin. Senator Quay, in unlovely at
titudes and mirth-provoking rote*. He has suc
ceeded mer»!y In drawing upon himself the
concentrated fire of editorials and the focussed
humor and satire of cartoons. "The North
American" yesterday pictured him in a form.
to quote his own words, of "an ugly little
dwarf seated on a crude stool."' or. rather, no
longer seated on the stool, but flying through
the air as th? press began to move. "The
Press" this morning lampooned him in the role
of Don Quixote, mounted on a sorry Rozinante,
armed with two ragged weapons, a lance, la
belled "Spleen" and a sword marked "Medlseval
ism." riding full tilt at a windmill whose two
revolving arms, "Freedom of the Press" and
"Cartoons" are destined ere long to suspend
him in midair.
These two cartoons and a third from "The
Evening Telegraph" present the situation far
better than any editorial comment can. The
newspaper world is in no degree terrified. It re
sents the vindictive spirit of the law. and in
stead of moderating its attack upon the Gov
ernor it has redoubled it. The second sentiment
that has followed the first bitterness and proter*.
is one of amusement, increased by the realiza
tion that only one thing has been accomplished
by the attempted "press muzzier." that one
thing being to stir to the very depths of bitter
ness the attack by cartoons upon the Governor
A late dispatch from Harrisburg announces
that Governor Pennypacker has declined to make
any answer to the storm of cartoons he has
stirred up. With something of the temper of
Achilles on a certain historic occasion, he is
keeping to his tent, and his only comment was.
-I have nothing to say." Not even a dem
onstration of the defiance contained in the
Philadelphia papers could provoke any state
ment of his future course of action.
Meantime the merry war goes on. Verse as
well as cartoon has been called into play, and
the ballad printed in "The Press" presents a
humorous picture of the intended effect upon the
press of the new law. This laureate of Phila

BUILDING TIE UP MAY END
TRADES BOARD TIRED.
Likely to Withdraw Its Support of
Unskilled Labor Soon.
According to statements made yesterday on
good authority, the Board of Building Trades is
getting tired of the present building tieup
caused by the unions of unskilled labor, whose
cause It has taken up. The entire trouble, the
members of the board realize, was started by
the strike of the Building Material Drivers'
Union for demands which were indorsed by the
board. This was followed by a strike of the
Team Drivers' Union, and then the shutdown
In the lumber and building material drivers'
yard? ensued, throwing all the skilled mechanics
idle. A well known member of the Building
Trades' Association said yesterday:
I think that in a few days there will be some
thing doing in the Board of Building Trades, and
I expect that the team drivers and material drivers
will be back early nexi week. Individual members
of the Board of Building Trades came to individual
members of the Lumber Dealers and Building Ma
terial Dealers' Association. They said that a mis
take had been made, and indicated that the In
dorsement of the demands cf the building material
drivers could be withdrawn. They also talked as
if the teamsters will In all likelihood return to
work early next week.
Builders are awaiting developments to be ex
pected at the meeting of employers to be held
this evening at the rooms of the Building Trades
Association, at No. 1,123 Broadway. The great
number of letters that has been received by
the committee of arrangements for the meeting
asking for information and the greater num
ber of replies to the invitations sent out in
dicate that the rooms of the association will
not be large enough to hold all the employers
who will try to be present.
The invitations to the meeting were sent only
to employers in the building trades in Manhat
tan and The Brcnx, but delegations of employ
ers from Brooklyn and from several outlying
cities, some in Connecticut, have asked for per
mission to attend the meeting, and have be<>n
assured of a welcome. While it is not expected
that the movement to form a compact organi
zation of employers to deal with striked in the
building trades will extend beyond New-Tort
County, there is a possibility that it may result
in the formation of an organization including
builders in several States of the Union
The Master Carpenters' Association held a
meeting yesterday at the Building Trades' As
sociation rooms and talked over the fight which
is going on between the Amalgamated and
Brotherhood carpenters. The meeting: was called
to consider a request to have the master car
penters recognize the Brotherhood to the ex
clusion of the Amalgamated. After a debate a
resolution was passed forbidding any agreement
by any of its members binding themselves In
favor "of the non-employment of any person
qualified to do the work required.

Tammany success next fall are growing less

place so far in advance is keenly Interesting.
Mr. O'Sulllvan Is counsel to Charles F.
