Philadelphians Split with .Va

[By Telegraph to The Tribune. ]
Philadelphia. Jan. 22. — Because, they
assort, the National Association of Re
tail Druggists is controlled and dominat
ed by the patent medicine manufactur
ers, the Philadelphia Association of Re
tail Druggists, which is opposed to the
?al<? and manufacture of nostrums, has
summarily severed its connection with
the national body.
The step is considered an important
victory for the doctors and pharmacists
throughout the country, who have fought
these remedies for years.
The secession of the Philadelphia or
ganization, with approximately six hun
dred members and for years one of the
strongest arms of the national body,
was decided upon at a meeting held last
night in the College of Pharmacy, fol

MISS FREEDOMS TIPS.
Eighteen Xew Ornaments for
the Lady of the Capitol.
[From The Tribune Bureau.]
Washington, Jan. 22.— Miss Freedom Is to
have eighteen new dress ornaments. They
will cost about $50 each and will be useful
as v ell as ornamental. Her jeweller will
call on Monday, provided the wind is not
blowing too hard. In the event of a storm
he will postpone his call, for even a steeple-
Jack goldsmith is not so anxious to make a
sale that he is willing to climb over 200
feet in the air on a windy day.
The average American does not know
that Miss Freedom is the bronze statue on
the dome of the United States Capitol.
Even some of the old Capitol guides still
refer to her as "Miss Liberty," but official
ly she is known as the Statue of Freedom,
and the. records show that she is 9 feet 6
inches high and weighs 14.985 pounds. She
was modelled by Crawford," and for many
years she has worn eighteen ornaments to
protect her from lightning. These orna
ments are platinum points set in gold. They
are conical in shape, the points running to
the sharpness of a needle.
Five years ago, when a daring steeplejack
climbed the dome of the Capitol to in
vestigate the platinum points, he found
five of them had been burned by light
ning and were useless. Elliot Woods, super
intendent of th» Capitol, has engaged Carl
Bijour, of St. Louis, to make an investiga
tion on Monday, and rope ladders are now
being rigged for Bijour's ascent. It Is ex
pected that most of the platinum points
will be found damaged, as Miss Freedom is
quite popular with the storm god.

MORE AUTO FRAUDS
CUSTOMS MEN MAKE
Cars Owned by Well Known
Men Among Those Un
In their Investigation of the opera
tions of Joseph P. Mc.irath. who is= in
the Tombs on a charge of having altered
the value of an imported automobile on
a certificate of appraisement, thereby
defrauding the government out of about
$4o() in duties, customs officers an
nounced yesterday that an extensive list
of violations of the customs laws had in
this way been discovered.
Owners of automobiles purchased
abroad paid full duties to employes of an
importing agent and. it was said, the
employes altered the papers and paid on
the changed valuation, and in this way
made thousands of dollars.
Henry Hews owned th? automobile
■which figured in the McGrath transac
tion. Mr. Clews paid 45 per cent duty
on the appraised valuation of 91,850, or
about |880. Mc.Jrath is charged with
having altered the figures $1,850 to $850,
to have collected the full duty from Mr.
Clews and then to have p;'.id duty on
$860, or $.TBf,.
The investigators have found that
William K. Vanderbilt, William Astor
Chanler. Ogden Goelet and many others
who had an importing ag-ent handle
their automobiles when shipped to this
port had paid duty on th» full appraise
ment and that the papers had then been
altered and large sums withheld from
the government. Only .>n<> importing
agent's employes have figured in the
frauds, according to government officials.
Th»re was another arrest late last
evening, and Secret Service agents are
hunting high and low for another per
son, who is much wanted by the United
States Attorney. It was said yesterday
that he would be able to clear \ip the
Collector Loeb, in order to enable per
sons to get their automobiles as quickly
as possible, permitted the issuing of cer
tificates of appraisement to be used in
plac«» of invoices. Sine** the arrest of
McGrath this permit has been revoked.
Th« certificate in which Mr. dews'*
automobile was appraised contained the
corr^cr valuation upon which the duty
was to be paid. It was clear enough
when the pap^r was taken away from
the Appraiser's Store? and when shown
to Mr. Clews. But before the certificate
was handed in at the Custom House the
figure "IT of the $1.8.=.0 had been re
moved with a chemical and the "een*
in the written amount "eighteen* had
b«-en erased in the same way.
It was said at the Custom House that
this scheme to defraud the government
Tvas discovered by accident. Another
investigation was under way. when sev
eral certificates were examined. A close
inspection showed that figures and let
ters had been erased. Secret Service
men were at once put on the trail and
McGrath's arrest followed. 0
It did not require much further ex
amination of papers and other docu
ments to show that many weli known
Americans who had imported automo
biles had unconsciously contributed to
the possessions of persons not in the
employ of the government for the pur
pose of collecting duties.
The complaint upon which McGrath
was arrested was sworn to by Edward
Barnes, the chief clerk of the Law Di
vision of th* 1 <""us=t"m House. Th- com
plaint upon which the other arrest was
made was issued at Th<* Federal Building
on complaint of the T'nite'l Sfat^s Attor
ney. The federal grand jury ■will take
up the case to-morrow

The latest innovation in dinner en

night. In the form of a pitched battle.

VIEWS ON LIBEL.
"1 want to say a few words about
libel." he continued. "The newspapers
do libel people, they do say things that
are not true that hurt people and that
cant be helped. But it is the little fel
lows that are hurt by falsehoods in the
press, big people are hurt by nothing
except the unpleasant truth. Therefore,
we try our best to be truthful about the
little people. But the harm done by libel
is not commensurate with that which
would be done should the newspapers
be interrupted in the fearless or even
hasty conduct of their business.

After the speaker had alluded in
picturesque language also to the pub

"Mr. Brisbane is laboring under a mis

That was the last word. Mr Brisbane
bowed a stiff acknowledgment and
everybody took a deep breath.
'lark Williams, State Controller, was
the guest of honor. He was introduced
by Justice Gerard as "in all probability
the next Governor of th»: State." But
he was inclined to deprecate the com

Sudbury. Ont., Jan. 22.— With three
big drayloads of rough boxes waiting
to receive the bodies of more than two
score victims, the scene of yesterday's
Canadian Pacific wreck at Spanish
River presented to-day an almost hope
less field of labor for the hundred or
more sent to clear away the wreck and
recover the victims' bodies. A blizzard
raged all day down the valley of the
Spanish River with a blinding snow
and bitter cold.
Eleven bodies had been recovered
from the submerged cars up to 6:.'SO
o'clock. Tt is believed that there are
still thirty-five or forty bodies in the
Two of the wrecked cafs. the colonist
car and the first class coach, whose
ventilators were visible above the
water this morning, drifted under the
bridge during the day and finally were
completely submerged. The dining car
remained partly on the river bank and
partly submerged in the river Little
remains of the second class coach which
was split in two when it struck the
bridge girder and took fire. Ice that
will bear a mans weight has closed
over the first class coach and the colo

The-wreck occurred on a 200-foot steel
bridge, with overhead girders and a 50
foot embankment sloping down to the
Spanish River. The engine, combination
mail and baggage car and express had
passed safely upon the bridge when the
forward trucks of the second class coach
jumped the track. The car struck an
immense steel girder with such terrific
force as to snap the girder in two and
split the car as though it had been di
vided with a cleaver. The rear of the
second class coach swerved far out to
one side, pulling the colonist car, first
class coach and dining car off the bridge
into the river and tipping over the Pull
man beside the track. Fire that broke
out at once in that portion of the second
class coach which remained on the rizht
of way added to the horror of the ac
STORIES OF THE SURVIVORS.
Few of the survivors of the wreck
were in condition to-day to give a con
nected account of the details of the ac
cident. B. J Pearce. a commercial trav
eller of Toronto, however, who with
Brakeman Morrison is thought to be the
only survivor from the first class coach,
gave a graphic account of his experi
ence. Mr. Pearce was getting a drink
at the water tank at the end of the car
when the crash came. Finding himself
struggling in the water, but with his
head out. he reached the tin light in
the end of the car. broke the glass and
the wire screen and struggled through,
with his fa-^e badly col and scratched.
Running along the top of the first
class car Mr. Pearce found a space about
six feet separating it from the diner.
Risking his life on the floating ice, he
almost reached the diner, when he lost
his footing and was plunged into the
icy water. But a projecting pipe from
the roof of the diner was within his
reach, and. climbing up by means of the
pipe he ran along the top of the diner
to the shore.
The telegraph wires , were torn down
and it was evident that relief could not
be summoned by wire. It was five miles
to the village of Nairn, and the drenched
"survivor ran the distance to deliver a
report of the wreck at the Canadian
Pacific depot at that place.
THE CONDUCTOR'S HEROISM.
Meanwhile, Thomas Reynolds, the con
ductor of the wrecked train, proved him
self a hero by rescuing eight passengers
from the sunken dining car. When the
wreck occurred Reynolds, with W. J.
Bell and David Brodie, had just sat
down for an early dinner. Bell and
Brodie were facing the engine and Rey
nolds' sat opposite them, riding back
ward. The diner was the last car to
enter the water and did not sink at
once, but settled slowly, while the pas
sengers climbed upon the tables to keep
their heads* above the rising waters,
which rose to their chins.
Conductor Reynolds dived to reach a
window, broke th glass and succeeded
in rising to the surface of the river out
side the car. where a hole in the ice en
abled him to gain a solid footing by
resting one arm on the roof of the car
and the other on the ice. Gaining the
KOI of the car. he broke a fa- Mght with
his fist and rescued little Alfonso Rou
sel, of Sa'ult Ste. Marie. After the little
boy came D. M. Brodie, of Sudbury, who
was small enough to pass through the
fanlight. Six more passengers, who were
too big to be rescued in this manner.

Three Horses and Bull Make
Mad Dashes --Woman Hurt.
Three horses and a bull attempted to
revive racing in New York yesterday.

one of the principal features. As he
was being landed at the foot of West
4<>th street, he suddenly decided n<>t to
go to Strauss & Adler. butchers, of N
.■ah; West 4<>th street, and dashed
through Eleventh avenue, into :«d street
and to Tenth avenue, where Patrolman
Barry drove him into a corner and an
amateur cowpuncher roped him, while
the onlookers cheered ecstatically.
Two horses bolted with an ice, wagon
from the corner of Seventh avenue and
33d street last night and raced madly
through .'wid street to Eighth av»nue
and then to .'Ust street. Patrolman John
Dailey was standing at the corner, and
when the runaways swept by him lift
pressed into service a big touring car.
The motor car drew up on the swaying
ice wagon and Patrolman Dailey swung
himself from the footboard to the wagon
and clambered over the ice to the
driver's seat. He grabbed the reins and
brought the trembling horses to a stand

Mr. Balling-r placed himself squarely
on the proposition that when the public
officer transcends* the powers with which,

press support We have been surfeited
for a long time with this kind of public
men, and in a measure their vagaries
have been seized upon by the faddist
and sentimentalist for exploitation. so
that on many public questions the public
mind is in a ferment of uncertainty and
alarm. These persons, playing the part
of Don Quixote, in their chivalric ab
surdity see visions of great crimes about
to be visited upon the dear people, and
they herald the supposed machination*
of the vicious enemies of popular rights
in alt seriousness. .Those who do not
become hysterical over their tales of
dire calamity and calmly ask for facts
are charged with being- in league with,
or accomplices of these imaginary crim
inals. The most vicious demagurue ts
he who sounds a false alarm which
arouses prejudices that strike at the
foundations of our government, which
disturb the public mind as to the neces
sity for observance of the laws <( th»
land. Again, some public officers make
the mistake of assuming that they have
been commissioned by a higher authority
than- the people, that is. by their own as
sumed indispensable qualities of fitness
to .. govern. They usually become po
litical autocrats and do more mischief
than good. Public servants of this etas*
are the least amenable to the .Constitu

A LEGISLATIVE FUNCTION.
Discussing the policy of the admin
istration, the Secretary said that the
answer must be understood to imply,
that there could be no policy that did
not keep within the law and undertook
to administer it with intelligent vigor
and fidelity. "The activities of an ex
ecutive officer which seek to improve
and correct imperfections of administra
tion is one thing, but it is quite a dif
ferent thing when he undertakes to cor
rect what he believes to be the short
comings of the law without legal war
rant therefor. . This is a legislative func
tion and not executive." he said, and
added : •
"No one will say that the Executive
can regulate or control interstate com
