MUCH IMPROV.ED TODAY

Being Sifted and Pittsfield Council
Will See That the Guilty Are Properly
Punished-President Takes a Drive
and After Sleeping Until 10 O'clock
This Morning Is as Fresh as Ever.
[tY ASOCIATKD PRESS.l
Oyster Bay, Sept. 4.-Dr. Lung, Roose
velt's physician, said today that he an
ticipated no serious results to the president
from yesterday's accident. The -president
left word that he desired not to be dis
turbed until about so o'clock this morn
ing.
He was much better this morning. He
took a drive today before.receiving'Grand
Duke Boris and party, who will be his
guests all day today. The duke arrived
from Newport in Ogden Mills yacht, ac
companied by Count Cassini, the Russian
ambassador and three members of his
suite, also by Ogden Mills and Assistant
Secretary of State Pierce.
The president will leave tomorrow on the
Sylph, starting on his southern trip.
Secretary Cortelyou, who passed last
night at his summer home at Hempstead,
is reported to be much better this morn
ing. He will accompany the president on
his southern trip. President Roosevelt is
receiving a large number of telegrams,
cable messages of congratulation on his
escape from serious injury in the acci
dent of yesterday.
After Street Car Men.
Pittsfield, Mass., Sept. 4.-\Vith the ex
citement following the accident to the
president yesterday, in a great measure
abated, the citizens were discussing the
question of the responsibility for the oc
currence. It is argued that the Pittsfield
Street Railway company should not have
disregarded the request of the mayor that
no cars should have been run while the
president was in the city.
At a meeting of investigation last night
this question was approached by both
branches of the city government. The
common council also appointed a commit
tee on investigation of the speed of cars
in general and report concerning how it
may be regulated.
At the House of Mercy it was stated
that the condition of D. J. Pratt, driven
of the pre.ident's carriage, was satisfac
tory.
Less interest than was generally ex
pected was shown in the appearance be
fore the district court today in the case
of Motorman Euclid Madden and Conduc
tor James Kelly, who had charge of the
nor thkl f.-~nt, ih. nr.r:,l~l.,.. ný ...,.
Trial Postponed.
Not more than So persons were present.
The case was not even called and after a
conference between counsel for the street
railway men and the court, it was agreed
to postpone the matter for two weeks.
Bail of $5,000 for Madden and $2,5oo
for Kelly was continued. The presidin:
judge was Joseph Tucker, president of
the street railway company. Had a hear
ing been had, he probably would have
been given place to an associate.
It is said two weeks hence, another post
ponement will be granted and the prelim
inaries and action by the grand jury if
the case should come before it will take
so much time that actual trial will not
be reached before January. The funeral
arrangements ot William Craig, the pres.
ident's guard who was killed yesterday,
have not been completed.
Congratulations Over His Escape.
Washington, Sept. 4.-Messages of con
gratulation over the escape of the president
in the accident yesterday have begun to
come to the state department from
abroad. One of the first was the follow
ing fromtl Emperor William:
'ocwen, Septr. 4.-Presldent, Washing
t,)n: \\ith all Americans 1 praise plrovi
dunce that saved your life from the terrible
accident. WIILIAM, I. R."
M\linister \Vu called in person at the
state department early today to inquire of
Acting Secretary itdee whether any ill
consequences had fonowed yesterday's
accidlent and also to extend his congratula
tions to the president.

CHANGES IN NAME
BEFORE CONGRESS
"INTERNATIONAL MINING ASSOCIA
TION" SOUNDS TOO MUCH LIKE
A COMMERCIAL BODY.
INCORPORATION PLANNED
AT THE MORNING SESSION
Resolution for More Solid Organization
Introduced-Number of Committees
Are Proposed and Changes in the
Fees and Classes of Membership Ad
vocated-Body Needs Strengthening.
In the deliberations of the International
Mining Congress toda;y tihe qucstion of
changing the name of the body from "In
ternatlonal Mining Congress" to "Ameri
can Mining Association" was debated, but
at the time of adjournment it had not been
disposed of in a manner satisfactory to the
delegates. Consequently, the discussion
will be resumed in the Auditorium of the
public library this evening, at which place
the congress will hold, its session because
the Broadway theater will be in use. The
session will be called to order at 8
o'clock.
Besides a change in name the resoilutin
provides for the incorporation of the body,
the election of a president, three vice pres
idents, secretary, treasurer and an exc
cutive committee comprising the officers
and one member of the body from each
state in the union; also, the following
committees: Five members on legislative
work, seven members on membership. five
on transportation, five on finance and five
on program, to the latter of which all of
the papers to be rea;d before the meetings
of the congress are to be submitted an.1
their fitness for presentation to the dele
gates passed tupon.
What They Will Pay.
The proposed memlbership fee is to be
$5 for active members and $S for associate
members. and annual dues of $2 for the
former. It also provides for a bond of
$5,ooo from the treasurer.
Taking it for granted that all of the del
egates In this particular instance are
vested with congressional honors, Con
gressman .McGuire of Utah asked for an
explanation of the object of the proposed
change, and it was accorded him by Joseph
A. Holmes of St. Louis. Mr. Ilolnes de
clared that it was solely for the purpose
of strengthening the body and giving it a
prominence and solidity which at present
it did not possess. If there was an ul
terior motive in the proposed change, it
was not manifest in anything which Mr.
llolmes slid.
J, P. Ilendricks of Illinois suggested an
amendment to the resolution. lIe ex
pressed the belief that if the name was
changed as suggeste\d in the resolution,
the body would lose too much of its
identity, and asked that the word "con
gress" be substituted for the word of
"association."
Is Not a Commercial Association.
Eben W. Martin, chairman of the Black
IIills' delegation, took a view similar to
tha;t of Mr. Hendricks. Ile said the word
"association" carried with it a suggestion
of something commercial, while "con
gress" partook more the nature of legisla
tive and deliberative methodsi.
Secretary Mahon spoke against the pro
posed change of name and incorporation,
saying among other things that an attempt
had been made at the Milwaukee meeting
to accomplish a similar object and at that
time it was fought to a finish, the result
being a compromise between the opposing
forces.
The debate on the question this evening
promises to be interesting, as several of
the delegates have been "wising up" this
afternoon and will burst forth in all of
their eloquence when the president
presses the button.

COUNTY DADS WILL
NOT ALLOW CLAIMS
CITY OF BUTTE WILL HAVE TO GO
TO LAW TO GET THAT $5,630
FOR BACK TAXES.
City Attorney Edwin M. T.amb today
filed an appeal to thie district court from
an order of the (ounlty .coniliisioners, dis
allowing a claim of the city of Butte for
a pro rata of penalties and inteicest col
lected by the counlty treasurer jointly upon
the city and county taxes for the years
1889 to 19ol inclusive, amounting in all to
$5,630.
In disallowing the bill Chairman Clark
of the county commissioners gave the fol
lowing reasons:
"First, that his decision was in ac
cordance with ati opinion of the attornety
.enlral stating in effect that all for
feitures, files anll penalties incurred by a
violation of section 4!115. of the political
code, should be ipaid into the general fund
of the county for the use of the county.
"Second, that the hdcisiont was in ac
cordance with a letter from the state ex
amilner to the same effect.
"Third, that the bill as presented is
wrong, as the phircentage is figured away
above what it reftlly is."
At the samte time, with the appeal, the
city. attorney filed a bond for $300. signed
by I'. J. Brophy and Edwin M. Lamb.
