J. J. HILL OX STAND.
Relations Between Great Northern
end Subsidiary Companies.
St. Paul. Mini Feb. I —The House commit
tee which waa appointed to inquire into the
Great Northern deal In ore lands, by which the
railroad recently transferred Its holdings to the
Oliver Slinlng Company, began its hearings to
day< James J. H!H being on the witness stand.
Representative Miller tried to get an admission
from Mr. Kill that the Lake Superior Company,
which held title to the ore lands, was organized
to defeat the law prohibiting railroads from
dealir.g In stocks of other corporations. He was
not entirely successful. Mr. Hill stated that it is
hi* belief that the ore lands contain 500,000,000
tons of ore.
C. 11. Venrier. a ICew York Block broker, who
has a suit pending against the Great Northern,
caused Mr. Hill to protest by attempting to sug-
Cest Questions to the examiner. The railroad
president declared that as the gentleman, whom
ha termed a. "professional litigant," had a legal
l*»ue with h!m. he thought it unjust that he
6houJd be compelled to discloso anything lor the
Visitor's benefit.
Mr. Hill testified that less than $2,000,000 in
securities had been transferred to thf! Lake .Su
perior Company, but a reference to the books of
th<» company showed that the Great Northern
tad turned over securities amounting approxi
mately to $8,000,000. These wore mostly stocks
of various subsidiary railroad, la-nd, ore, logging
•uio development companies. The agreement by
they were transferred showed that the
company was not to sell or assign any part of
them without Great Nnrthf-rn consent. Mr. Hill
ma-id that practically .ill of the property repre
sented by the securities had to do with the \v< I
fare of the railroad, and the aim was to have the
Lstkc Superior Company administer them for the
benefit of the railroad and its stockholders. He
asserted, however, that the I«ike Superior Com
pany could buy her property, and that, al
though the two companies had elmllar officers,
••••parate ownership could !•& established."
The hearing will be continued to-morrow.

GRAND ELLENBOGZN TESTIMONIAL.
lammany Kail's "Martyred Hero" Honored
by "Tims" and ''Toms."
nator
[Jordan, the Sullivan* ("Big" and "Little"
other
■ era on the lower East Bide, In per
son or by proxy, were still dan< ing at. a "grand
EUenbogen ball at the M
tan Lyceum, In honor of the man who once
suffered for Tammany Hall. Before the lights
. :t is Baid, received a
■ ng $2,0
hlf< am";
The guests treated Ellenbogen with marked
deference, the amites and their consorts
alike prfFFing- forward to clasp his white gloved
hand.
"Isn't this the Fame Samuel K. Ellenbog.n
v,ho was sent to Sing Sing In 1905 for perjury In
connection with election Irregularities?" asked a
Tribune reporter of one of the committee at tho
lial!.
"Sure: Pure^ — Sam Ellenbogen. Yes, he sure
Mrnt up the river, but"— exultation — "he's
out!" was the answer.
Kllenbogen v.-as a city marshal at the time he
■was convicted, and his friends were shocked
■when be as caught in the trap set for him by
the State Superintendent of Elections.
He was pardoned by Governor Higgii last
X'ecernber. and since his release he has be* re
ceiving the felicitations of his friends on the
T/d-n Sice. Every one tells him he was a martyr
In the cause of political righteousness; that he
had been "sent away" through a plot, and that
if he '.ad had a "fair deal" he never would havo
Feen the inside of Sing Sing.
Fllenbogen seemed to forget all his troubles
Jast night. There was beer a-plenty, and music,
end dancing, and things to eat. From the way
the Bulltvans shook hands with Ellenbogen it
reemr-d to the rank and file that they at last con
sidered him a seasoned warrior.
THE NEW AND GREATER TRiRIINF
BUILDING
MEN WANTED A BED.
Climb Into William A. Read's
House and Catch a Tartar.
Mrs. "William A. Read, wife of the banker,
surprised two burglars as they were climbing in
the bathroom window of her home, at No. 4
East 62<J street, early yesterday morning,
aroused her bouMhold, «umrr.oned the reserves
of the East 67th street station by a messenger,
to whom «he threw her house keys, and saved
her property, though she failed to catch th« In
truders. Ker cries and those of her servants
caused an uproar in the neighborhood. The
house was surrounded by the police, and the re
■ '..-. from tho Arsenal turned out and searched
the park, but the burglars could not be found.
They left behind them a twenty-foot ladder
planted against the walls of a one-story exten
sion to the house of Mrs. Josephine Sohmid. at
No. SOT Fifth avenue, next door to Mrs. Read's
home.
Just to the south of Mrs. Schmld'fl house is a
vacant lot. shut In by a high wall. In this lot
the police believe the burglars had hidden the
ladder they used to scale the extension, and let
themselves down Into the courtyard of the Read
home. To get to the bathroom window they
used the fire escape. When Mrs. Read heard
them, and, opening the bathroom door as one
was straddling the window sill, asked them
what th. wanted, the foremost burglar said:
•■pleaßt* madam. Isn't there a place where a
poor man could get a bed?"
ERIE LOCAL SERVICE (IT.
Road Must Handle More Freight,
Says Officer.
The Krie Railroad management announced
yesterday Its Intention to make a considerable
reduction In the number of local trains operated
by the system. The new schedule, which Is to
become effective next Sunday and will cover
the New York & Greenwood Lake Railway,
the New Jersey & New York and the Northern
Railroad of New Jersey, as well as the main
line will show a total of between twenty and
twenty-five fewer trains than at present oper
ated. These trains are among those which run
between 10 a. m. and 4 p. m. Various reasons
are assigned for the curtailment of serv tin
principal one being the necessity of obtaining
larger accommodation for freight traffic, which
ie now badly congested owing to the limitations
of the Bergen tunnel.
An officer of the company said:
During tha last two weeks we have had to
confine our entire attention to the suburban
business, and as a result the shippers have suf
fered severe losses. So many trains are being
operated as seriously to interfere with our
freight trains. "We have a very large quick
freight traffic, foodstuffs, fruit, etc., that requires
prompt delivery, and under present conditions
we are unable to give adequate service.
Owing to the lack of facilities at Jersey City
and the fact that the Bergen tunnel is m;. to it*.
limit, there is but one way out of a bad condi
tion — take off some trains.
It has been decided to annul all suburban
passenger trains which are run at loss, but the
great majority of the commuters will not be
affected. Nearly all of the rush hour trains
show a profit over the actual cost of running,
but there are many two and three car locals
which do not.
While the company regrets the step. It If
forced to take action If the freight shippers are
to have reasonably good service. The new
schedule will be announced within a few days.
SUES FOR GRAFT MONEY,
Newark Man Says He Paid Police
Captain for "Protection."
Jjouls "Welntraub , who pleaded guilty to a
charge of maintaining a disorderly house in Xew
Jersey Railroad avenue, Newark, as a res
a raid on his place, and was sentenced to sev
enty-five days In jail, started suit through Harry
V. Osborne, In the Circuit Court In Newark yes
terday, against Captain Jacob Bcriba, of the
First Precinct, who raided his house, to recover
$675 which he alleged was paid to the precinct
commander or his agents as "protection min»y."
Pcriba, with several other superior officers of
the police department, was Indicted b> th
tember term of the grand Jury on charges of
nonfeasance which followed an Investigation
Into the affairs of the police department. The
Investigation grew out of a vice crusade carried
on by Sht-riff Frajik K. Sommer, who raided sev
eral resorts over the heads of the police, and
later produced affidavits In which prisoners
tflken hud made damaging statements against
■ rs.
Weintraub alleges that he paid Uw money f "
Scrlba on two occasions, and to his agents on
o-h'-rs, iii all amounting to $675. Cap*ain Scriba
said ; ■ that ihe suit was a result of spite
work. 11° denied that he had ever recelv<
Intraub, and as proof of his as
sertion pointed to the fact that h<^ and hts de
tectlves ra-ld^d Welntraub several tltn«p :. !
made him a prisoner.

Washington, February 14.
THE NEW PACIFIC FLEET.— The establish
ment of a Pacific fleet, whloh will be announced
by th* Navy Department In a few days. Is the
result of a plan approved some, months ago by
President Roosevelt. The general proposition Is to
have two big fleets, with the ultimate idea of hav
ing eaoh or them commanded by a vice-admiral,
If such a grade is ever authorised by Congress.
There will be no changes In the present situation
Of the snip* now composing the Asiatic fleet and
the Pacific eauadron. which will be merged to make
the Pacific fleet. The command will be exercised
from Astatic waters, where the senior admiral will
naturally be stationed. The present Pacific squad
ron will form a squadron of the Asiatic fleet.
There Is no material change in the amalgamation,
but there are many benefits to be derived from
having a single command In the Pacific. ere will
be no change In the method of repairing ve«»els
by reason of the establishment of the Paclna fleet.
So far an It is possible, the Navy Department will
adhere to Its policy of bringing 1 to home yards
from the Astatic station ships which require ex
tensive repairs, morel.- because such work can be
better done at home, and there Is much to be said
In favor of spending the money among the work
men In the United Stated.
