robbing the house. He was surprised
in this by a telephone message from
Miss Helen Buck. Mrs. Heilner's com?
panion, and escape,! from the house
just as "that young woman was about
to enter it.
Ten minutes later police summoned

the kitchen floor. There were some
sigrns of life, but ambulance surgeons
from the Kastern Pistrict Hospital
were compelled to admit her dead after
they had worked some time upon the
Hanoi's record and photograph were
found at headquarters after Inspector
Faurot, who took charge of the case,
returned to his office. The record
showed that the supposed reservist had
been sentenced in Philadelphia on
April 22, 1913, to two years in the
Kastern Penitentiary on a charge of
carrying concealed weapons.

Resolution for Inquiry
Into Need of New
1 - - a Staff r,?rr?5<rx>?Mi?r.? .,' T* ? Tr.bun?. I
Albany, April '.'3. Finances will be
investigated by the Legislature. Thii
, ?vas determined upon at the Republican
conference to-day. Senator Klon R.
Brown, president pro tern, of the Sen?
ate, will be chairman of tlje committee.
The resolution which was adopted
was drafted by Senator Brown and
other legislative leaders after a con?
ference with the Governor. The reso
I lution, which provides $25,000 for the
? committee, reads in part:
"Resolved, That a joint legislative
! committee consisting of six Senators
| and six Assemblymen be appointed to
1 investigate and determine what legisla
| tion, ?f any, ahould bo enacted to af
j ford relief to the City of New York in
relation to taxation for local and state
purposes, and what legislation consis?
tent with public opinion in the City of
New York and the public interests
should be enacted to increase the con
i trol of the city authorities over ex?
penditures now fixed by 'law; to inquire
to what extent, if any, local expendi?
tures for public or governmental pur
, poses In the City of New York are im
| pairing the ability of real estate in
! such city to bear its equitable share
! of state expenses and in what way the
I remedy therefor depend* upon legis
lative action and to prepare the needed
j legislation to carry its rccommenda
I tions into effect."
The committee is to report back to
i the Legislature next February.
In an interview with The Tribune
? correspondent two months ago Senator
Brown said that New York City was on
I the verge of bankruptcy and that to
? sa'.e it from coing into the han?ls of a
j receiver interference on the part of
I the Legislature was necessary. Pro?
tests were made by the city authori?
ties and the proposition was dropped
At the time Senator Brown in part
repudiated his interview, saying the
Legislature had no intention of in?
vestigating New York City on its own
I initiative, but would do so if the New
York City authorities requested it.
? The New York City authorities did
' not request this investigation, and so
far as could be learned, it originated
in Senator Brown's brain and he as?
sumed full responsibility for it when
- he introduced it.
Senator William If, Bennet, of New
York, secotiili-d the resolution. Mr.
Bennet introduced a similar resolution
early in the session. Senator Rollert
I.awson, of Kings, followed, and called
attention to the fact that he, too, in?
troduced a resolution to investigate
New York City finances.
The resolutions of Bennet and Law
! Bon were introduced following Sena
; tor Brown's interview in The Tribune.
Senator Brown modestly disclaimed
' that the idea originated with him, and
? said he received helpful suggestion!
; from Senators LawsOB and Bennet. He
; said the investigation was thought wise
by the Republican members of the
Mills Defends Investigation.
Senator Ogden L. Mills, of New York,
( rose to the defence of the investigation.

Colorado Fuel anil Iron Company, which
to-day eame into the possession of
Frank P, Walsh, chairman of the L'nited
States Commission on Industrial Rela?
tions, contain revelations bearing on
the recent Colorado coal strike of so
startling a nature as to decide Mr.
Walsh to recall Mr. Rockefeller to the
stand when the commission resumes
its public hearings in Washington,
The correspondence shows, Mr.
Walsh said to-night:
That John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who
I testified before the commission in New
I York and also before the Congressional
? investigating committee that he had
kept his hands off the strike situation
and had no knowledge of conditions in
the coal fields, was in reality the direct?
ing mind in the struggle throughout.
That he exercised a personal influ?
ence which extended even to the State
House in Denver and presumed to dic?
tate letters that went out to the Presi?
dent of the l'nited States and to the
governor? of states over the signature
of the Governor of Colorado.
That he withheld from the Depart?
ment of Labor in Washington informa?
tion asked for when Secretary Wilson
sought to avert the strike before it
That he knew on the admission of
his own hgents in the field.-, that the
Colorado Fuel and Iron Company con

"The Commission has to-day made a
, part of its record." Mr. Walsh said to?
night, "a mass of cprrespondence not

' Mr. Murphy, noting und?r instructions
?from Mr. Rockefeller, told the gov.-rn
I ment agent that they could not inter

(entire matter was in the hands of the
j mine executives on the scene.

Mr. Murphy wrote a full account of it
to Mr. Bowers at Denver, and Mr.

"It is amazing to read the, conn

Department of Labor was striving foi
! Rockefeller's co-operution to avert the
clash and behind the back of the de?
partment's representative. Thus in the
I letter referred to Mr. Bowers write?:
" 'Your favor was read by both Mr

? 'action. You handled the mattei
i raised by Mr. Stewart with exceptional
skill, and it leaves us unhatidicappe?!

"Mr. Brown then writes six type?

For his first glimpse Mr. Ivins began

autobiography. Turning its pages
carelessly as he spoke, Mr. Ivins began
with what he termed "persistence of
"Do you realize," he asked, in the
manner of a man who has discerned sr?
interesting phenomenon, "that some of
the phraseology in this book Is identi?
cal with that used by you in the state?
ment which is the basis of this com?
plaint and with some of the testimony
you have given at this trial?"
"I do not," was the prompt reply.
Mr. Ivins smiled and touched off h'.s

pared it with the "invisible govern

Just a G" npse of Envy.
f For a moment it seemed that a rara
spirit of envy blazed in the Colonel's
eyes, as if this inquisitive plodder had
filched a word from his very pocket.
In his amazement he stammered for a
moment before attempting an explana
- tion. Tt was something that had never
occurred to him, he declared, but he
, was certain it was not due to a poverty
Still armed with the autobiography
to which he slyly referred as "your
major opus," Mr. Ivins sought infor
! mation about bosses. The witness
readily acknowledged that Mr. Barnes
! was not depicted as a boss in his book.
It was not his intention in writing the
book, he said, to rouse the public to
fight boss rule. He explained that he
had particularly refrained from any
; "wanton or maIi?'ious attack" on Mr.
? Barnes at that time.
"Did you know, as Governor," asked
Mr. Ivins, "that there w?,s an allianco
between the, Democratic and Republi?
can organizations ?"
"I was convinced of it," said the
Colonel, leaning forward and smacking
? into his palm, "and if they had
succeeded in blocking the franchise tax
bill or Insisted on the retention of Mr.
Payn I would have made the same fight
I am making now."
The Colonel was glaring at the jury,
oblivious of Mr. Ivins, who had risen to

Justice Andrews brought his gavel
down with a bang. "Mr. Ivins," he
said, and, though low, his voice vibrat?
ed in the sud?len hush that came with
the ran of the gavel, "this witness will
be treated as any ordinary witness.
Let there be no discussion of that."
Mr. Ivins apologized, saying he mere
lv wished it impressed upon Colonel
Roosevelt that when a categorical m

Many Talks with Harnes.
Colonel Roosevelt told of numerous
conversations with Mr. Barnes held,
some of them, while the Colonel was
in Albany, and some while he was at
the White House. Mr. Barnes had been

acknowledged that he did not consi'*""?
