blinding snowstorm and in momentary
danger of being dashed against a sub
merged wreck or the breakwater, the
freighter Saxona (7,000 tons) Is being

The Saxona put out after dark last
night for Ashtabula. Hardly had she

broke a propeller, and was forced to
sound distress signals. L4fe-savlng
stations were closed and all harbor
lights were out, and It was nearly an
hour before tugs were able to locate

breakwater that the tugs were afraid
to venture near enough to throw " a

able, to move her.
The 400 saloon pasengers took the sit

at dinner and for breakfast and lunch
today and so many letters were written
that the ordinary mail sack used for
them could not contain them all.
The mishap was due to the tremendous

TO SETTLE DISPUTE
OVER CANAL TOLLS
Many Do Not Think. Senate
Would Concur in
That the Panama canal tolls dispute
with England will not be submitted to
arbitration In spite of the announce
ment made by President Taft In New
York last night that he stands ready
to arbitrate it. Is the conviction that
obtains strongly in Senate circles.
President Taft cannot submit the
matter to arbitration except with tho
concurrence of the "senate. It Is im
probable that the Senate would sanc
tion arbitration at this time. Less
than two months remain for business,
in this session of Congress, and to
attempt to submit the canal tolls ques
tion to arbitration would mean long
debate. In view of the mass of other
business, the question of whether there
Is to be arbitration will in all proba
bility go over for the next Adminis
tration to bolve.
When President Taft made his New
York speech favoring arbitration he
doubtless knew that within his Ad
ministration it would not be possible to
decide this question. In the first place,
the opposition of Senators to arbitra
tion is such that it Is doubtful If the
Senate would agree to arbitrate, even
after prolonged debate.
The opinion Is not wanting In some
quarters that the President was seek
ing to put the new Administration In a
hard position In this matter. Whatever
the President had in mind. It is un
doubtedly a fact he has added to Wil
President Taft virtually has changed
front on the canal tolls question. He
has, it is true, never declared himself
opposed to arbitration, but he has de
clared the United States owned the
canal and had the power to grant free
lolls to "any part of our shipping that
Congress deems wise." This was In a
message December 3, 1911.

The governor showed the deepest In
terest, however. In Mr. Taft's utter
ances, and perused the speeches care
fully. With respect to the difficulties that
have arisen over the canal, Mr. Wilson
has not made known at any time what
his course would be. He Is giving quite
a study to the subject, however, and
the make-up of his Cabinet. It is
thought ho will choose some men with
the specific Idea In mind of getting ex

NEW YORK. Jan. S. During, a grill;

Attorney Le Roy W. Young and Cor
oner E. S. Moore, of Suffolk, county,

of mystery clouding the motives which
led Henry C. Edey, the former New
York broker, to murder his wife in
their handsome home at Heliport, L. I.
last Thursday, and then take his own
Mrs. Murdock testified most unwill
ingly at the Inquest into the 'death
of the couple, but when she' had fin
ished nothing was left for the imagi
nation. She told how, at the sugges
tion of Edey, he and her own husband
had arranged to exchange ,wlvcs; how
tho children were to be cared for un
der the new marital; arrangements, and
how, when Edey 'became. reconciled to
his wife and went back on bis, bar
gain Murdock and she (the witness)
decided to sue him for JltXl.OOO.
It was to be charged he had alien
ated the affections of Mrs. Murdock.
although she reluctantly acknowledged
she was living with her husband at
the time the plan was worked out.
Angry at Lawyer's Questions,
Mis. Murdock. an attractive young
woman with deep blue eyes and dark
hair, arrived In company with her
father. Henry E. Corwin, postmaster of
Bellport. She wore a plain black gown,
heavy raglan coat of gray and a hat of
lliht brown fur. Her only Jewels were
large Pearl earrings, which accentuated
tne unnatural paiior ui hci u.
was palpably 111 at cast, but under the
lire of questions became angry and at
times rebellious. ...
"And this was for alienating -your af
fections?" demanded the prosecutor.
"It was," the witness answered.
"If you were not on Intimate termi
with' your husband, why did you aid
him In this suit." asked Mr. Young.
"Because I thought he was Justified
In bringing it,'' snapped the witness,
"and. besides. I was helping myself. I
was to get one-third of what money
my husband got. He was to get a third
and the lawyers a third."
Proposed "Swapping" of Wives.
Mr. Young wanted to know in what
way Murdock was Justified in suing
Edey; whether Edey had alienated tho
affections of the witness.
"He made plans which he failed to
fulfill," the young woman explained.
"What were those plans?" asked Dr.
"Well," replied the wltnes after she
vainly tried to conceal this part of the
story, "Mr. Edey got his wife to leave
her home and go to Texas with my hus
band. At first he wanted Mrs. Edey
and me to go there and get divorces

TO WATCH CROOKS
Major Sylvester Plans to Keep Criminals Out of Capital,
and Is Preparing Dragnet for Those Who- Get
Over the "Dead Line."
Crooks, big and little, must be kept
out of Washington for Inauguration
week. This la, the mandate of Major
Sylvester, superintendent of police and
chairman of the inaugural public safe
ty committee, and to enforre it he will
use several effective measures.
Major Sylvester will have the co-operation
of the United States Secret
Sorvice and the police deparaments of
all 'large cities. Any crooks, who appear
to be heading for the Capital just be
fore the Inauguration will be hauled
up promptly as suspicious characters,
and police officials In all cities will at
tempt to Inform, the Washington de
partment 'of ne movement of any im
portant criminals. '
For any crooks, who get over the
"dead line" and Into ahe city, there
will be a dragnet made firm and strong
by weeks of preparation. The major
is having printed hundreds of photos
of well-known '"dips," second story
workers,' yeggmen, highwaymen, and
the rest of the clever underworldllngs,
so that the regular policemen and the
special officers will have a chance be
fore Inauguration week to become ac
quainted with the faces.
Will Warn Householders.
Then, as an Incentive for capturing
these criminals. Major Sylvester will
see that an appropriation Is made to
give a reward for any policeman or
citizen who lands one of these men.
Pickpockets and second-story men are
the moflt numerous of the class of
criminals following such a celebration
as 'the inaugural 'ceremonies. -Major
Sylvester plans to 'warn householders
about putting the lock on doors dur
ing inauguration week, and visitors
about making a display of money,
watches, and the like in such places as
to attract the attention of "dips."
Tho public safety committee appoint
ments will be announced tomorrow, and
probably the) reception committee also.
As Personal Escort
The famous Essex Troop, of New Jer
sey, is seeking the honor of being Gov
ernor Wilson's personal escort in the
parade, but Governor- "Wilson has not
made any decision yet. Major General
Wood believes this Important matter
should be left to the President-elect to
settle. Others on the list for this honor
are the Richmond Blues, the Richmond
Howitzers, the Virginia. Military Insti
tute, and the Charleston Citadel.
The Essex Troop is one of the most
noted military bodies In the country,
corresponding In many ways to the An
cient and Honorable Artillery of Bos
ton, the Governor's Footguard of Con
necticut, and the old Astor Battery- Its
membership Is chiefly made up of mil
lionaires, and Its equipment and achieve
ments are known throughout tho .coun
try. It has not Been aeaaea yet wneuier
Governor's Footguard will have places
In the parade.
Expect Use of Pension Hall.
The legislative Committee will meet
at 4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon with
Chairman George E. Hamilton at the
Union Trust building to complete ar
rangements for submitting the pension
building bill and other requests to Con
gress. While some committees cannot
proceed with their work until the atti
tude of congress on granting tne use or
the Pension hall for the Inaugural ball
is definitely known, there Is little doubt
among Inaugural committeemen that
the bill will pass. Majority Leader JJn
derwood Is in favor of It. and there
probably are not enough opponents to
Ifls thought among Democrats that
those who opposed the bill at the time
of Taft's Inaugural, will not feel the
same toward the subject this year,
since Governor Wilson is Involved.
Housing of Militia.
One of the problems of legislation Is
the matter of obtaining quarters for
the militia organizations. Chairman M.
I. Weller of the public comfort commit
tee, has decided to ask Congress for the
use of the public school buildings to
accommodate many of these. Elghtyears
ago -Congress refused the use of the
buildings, but this year, even though
the schools would have to be closed for
about a week, it Is practically the only
plan open. Mr. weller finds that the
condemned property near the Union
Station is practically all occupied.
Because some of the committee chair
men In Congress are dodging the Pen
sion bulldlnir bill. It Is probable that the
requests will be submitted as a Joint
resolution to be considered by the
House as a committee of the whole.
The committee on local transportation
is as follows: E. S. Mariow, Dean Cald
well, William F. Downey, Carl Burg
dorff; G. B. Van Ness, George Ryan,
Jr.; H. F. Barker, Benjamin Woodruff,
J. H. Hanna, J. T. Moffat, A. Ll Cline,
J. Flckllng, A. C. Stelnbrenner, and II.
This committee Is to hold Its first
