This morning the Uller dropped anchor
directly in the channel. A request was

"Commandant Grant wants you to
move your vessel," yelled Capt. Grupp
from the bridge of a Government tug.
"Ho doos, does ho?" answered tho
Norse skipper. "Well, you tell him to
como right out and move It."
Eventually the reasons for all the re

and hearty and all were delighted to see
New York again.
The Newport succeeded the old school-
hlilp St. Mary's us a t ruining ship.
Commander Tillman sain yesterday
that he is trying to correct a mistaken
notion on the part of many persons that
tho New York Nautlcul School s a sort
of reformatory institution. He is daily
receiving requests from mothers and
fathers with unruly, mischievous sons
hn have "tho best hearts in the world
for their admission to tho school in the
hope thut the discipline will bo a good
thing for them, and ne is Kepi ousy writ
ing explanations thut the Newport isn't
a reform school .
Tho New York Nuutical .School was cre
ated under an act of the Legislature, ap
proved on April 21, 1873, outhorizing the
Hoard or Education 10 provide hi-uuh
for tho oducation and training of boys

pic games. The boys took in tho big
show and rooted for all they were worth

AS B. W. GIBSON'S TOOL?
Experts to Compare! "Mrs. Men
schlk" Signature With the
Name on Szabo Citation.
Woman Suspected of Having
Figured in Connection With
Specimens of the handwriting of the
woman who says she Is Rose Guerra
and thnt she signed the waiver of cita
tion in tho matter of tho will of Mrs.
Rosa Menschlk Szabo were placed in tho
hands of Assistant District Attorneys
Murnhv and Wasservojiel yesterday njia
by them turned over to experts who will
compare them with the signature which
Dlaccd tho settlement of the dead
woman's estate in the hands of Burton
W. Gibson and led to his arrest.
Tho superficial examination so far
made confirms those who are assisting
the prosecuting authorities of Orange
county In their belief that tho remark
able story of the woman brought here
from Wllkesbarrc on Saturday nlnt
yill have a most Important bearing on
the case. Tho necessary corroboration
of the details of her recital have as yst
but been begun and so far as they navo
proceeded nothing has developed to
change tho opinion that this woman Is
the mysterious Rosa Guerra. whose
name has been mentioned in every tate
of tho Imprisoned lawyer's career dur
ing the last fifteen years.
She bus not been Identified by Donald
Lyon, the Hrooklyn notary public be
fore whom she declares sho made her
signature as Mrs. Petronclla Men
schlk, the mother of Mrs. Rosa Szabo,
nor has she been confronted by others
who should recognize her. On this
point Mr. Murphy Bald last night:
"It is Impossible to form any detlnlte
conclusion ns to the value of this
woman's testimony until all her state
ments have been carefully checked up."
All the statements made by this
woman were taken down by a stenogra
pher and they are being studied care
fully. While particular attention has
been given to the Szabo cose. It may
be said that sufficient information Is
In the hands of the Assistant District
Attorneys to cause them to turn their
eyes in other directions. If this wit
ness is called to the stand she may
disclose her relations with others than
Gibson, and there Is an understanding
that these revelations may lead to nr
rests of several persons who have been
mentioned Indirectly In connection with
tho various cases which tho arrest of
Gibson has recalled.
One of these cases Is that of the.
death of Michael Shlppo, who was
found In Pelhom Creek on December
14, 1907. Shlppo had been a witness
at the Inquest into the death of Mrs.
Alice C. D. Kinnan, who died on the
front stoop at 2464 Washington ave
nue. The Uronx. on June 9, 1909. Glb
'son was arrested in the case, and
Shlppo testified that he had seen the
lawyer struggling with Mrs. Kinnan.
Despite the confidence shown by the
Assistant District Attorneys, counsel
for Glti.ton continue to express the be
Kef that the woman calllni..- herself Mrs.
Guerrn Is a fraud. Robert 11. Elder said
yesterday that he knew all about this
woman and the kind of life she has led
and his conclusion is that she Is "a poor,
pitiful, demented woman.
District Attorney Rogers of Orange
county Is to meet Mr. Murphy to-mor
row and they will ko over the state
ments of the self-styled Mrs. Guerra,
Gibson, who Is In Jail at Goshen and
who has flatly dented all the statements
of the new witness, sent for Rogers yes
terday. He told the prosecuting official
that the entire tale was a frameup on
the part of the woman.

of the pluns for the training school, Sho
said that officers In tho army aro to give

Independents Increase Prices 75 to
Nfl Cents a Ton at Mines.
Pottsville, Pa., Oct ", As a direct
result, It Is said, of the panic which has
struck coal dealers In the larger cities,
who are offering Independent operators
big premiums for anthracite, a num
ber of Independent operators In this
section to-day made a big raise In the
price of coal.
The St. Clair independents, who are
taking the lead In the matter, Increased
the price of pea and chestnut coal from
75 to 85 cents a ton. At this rate the
chestnut coal at the mines Is now over
J5 a ton. The Independents made a
statement declaring they would not sell
coal under the price they can get for It
on the cars at Philadelphia and New
lork. The Reading Coal and Iron Com
pany declared it will not be a party to
any further additional raise In price.
The action of the Independents Is be
lieved to have been Inspired by ngents
of Philadelphia and New York dealers
who have been canvassing this reglorr
for contracts since anthracite has been
selling at a premium In certain sections.

Detained Trincc Indignantly
Awaits His Fate on Ellis
UNCLE SAM HASN'T RECORD
Commissioner Williams Waits
to Loam Why France
Commissioner of Immigration Williams
of New Vork received a telegram yes
terday from tho immigration bureau
that it could find no record concerning
Princo I.udovlc Plgnatelll d'Aragon, who
is held up at Ellis Island Tor nossible
deportation as an undesirablo citizen
on the ground or his alleged gambling
record in Europe. Mr. Williams was
directed to freo the Prince unless Ellis
Island had information against him.
The Prince was indignant yesterday.
He was indignant all over the "fog room
o( Ellis Ialnd. He smoked one cigarette
alter another and denounced things.
His lawyer, John Patterson or 43 Cedar
street, went to see him in the "fog room."
He said that his ollent had heen mis
represented in the newspapers and de
clared ho would sue out a writ or habeas
corpus to bo served on tho immigration
The "fog room," in which the Prince is
restrained, is a chamber furnished with a
grand piano, rugs and other princely
comforts into which the Commissioner
retreats when in cases of foggy weather
ho cannot leave the island. It is by no
means a barren placo.
The Prince upon arising was indig
nant because there was no one to rub
him down after his shower bath. He was
indignant because it was an Ethiopian
who arrived at tho princely summons
"shouted through the hall." He had
coffee in his rooms and then sent for his
valet. This person could not be found.
With tho aid or a guard, however, he
managed to struggle into some clothes.
He had breakfast in tho dining room of
tho officials and lunched thero too. In

Coroner Begins Inquiry ns to
the Boston Express
EASY TO PUT OUT AT FIRST
Extinguishers No Good, They
Say, and Axes and Crow
bars Couldn't Bo Found.
BnnxrEPORT, Conn.. Oct. 7. Inadequate
train equipment, absence of axes, crow
bars and other implements needed in
wrecks, as well as poorly charged fire
extinguishers, wero responsible to a large
extent for the loss of life in tho wreck of
tho Boston Express at Saugatuck last
week, according to witnesses in Coroner
John A. Phelan's inquest to-day in the
Witnesses told of their efforts to put
out the fire In the parlor cars by the use
of tho hand chemical tire extinguishers
that they found unharmed in the day
coaches. The charges in the extin
gushers were old, thoy said, and were
of no use. These witnesses 6aid the fire
did not spread rapidly and might easily
have been put out had there been tho
right sort of implements at hand.
Joseph Morton, postmaster at West-
port, who saw tho wreck, testified that
the train rushed by the station at high
speed, as he had noticed other trains do
recently, aunougn iney were noi per
mitted to take tbo britlgo over tho road
to the west of the station at more than
thirty miles nn bow.
Jolm Pooline. a Westnort carpenter.
said he saw the engine pass over tho
bridge, topplo over and then apparently
blow up. lie was the first man to bring
up the question whether or not tho ex
press was wrecaen on iraca j or on a spur
track to the north of that track.. It was
his opinion that it had crossed over from
track 1 to track 3 and was wrecked on
the spur. .
"After I liad looked about the engine
for some sign of tho engineer or fireman, "
said Dooling. "I climbed into ono of the
wrecked parlor cars with nn extinguisher
in my hand. Some ono had brought it
up from the rear cars. I tried to use it
on the flames that wore beginning to
spread and fotmd that it didn't work.
It only dripped a few drops."
Dooling also testified that he had noticed
that the brakes were sot on tho engine
wheels, indicating that tho engineer
had applied tho emergency brakes be
fore tho engine went over. It was his
opinion that the fire in tho parlor cars
would not have been nearly so disas
trous had there been mifficient water
pressure in the water mains of West port
to fight tho fire.
Charles Kaiser, another Westport car-
f tenter, said he was the first to enter tho
mining parlor car, and that he got in
through a window, "I saw only ono man
in the car," he sala, "hut from the other
end, where thero was much smoke, camo
the cries of women. 1 saw three flro ex
tinguishers, none of which could be used.
I saw a man named Donnogan take an
extinguisher and get where he could have
checked tho fire had tho oxtlnguisher
worked. I took one of two extinguishers
from a rear car. It waa apparently In
good condition, but it did not throw out
Frederick Kaiser, a brother of the pre
ceding witness, told of his vain effort to
use the extinguishers and of his hunt to
find tools with which to chop away wreck
age. Other witnesses told of tho lack of
ax os and crowbars.
At the close of the hearing Coroner
Phelan said he would dovoto perhaps a
week to the study of the technical sido of
the matter and would call railroad men
as witnesses. Ho will attend the hearing
on the wreck held by the Interstate Com
merce Commission in New York to-morrow.
