RICH MEN IN RACE OF GIFTS PrTTFRURG REAPS THE BENEFIT OF FRICK-OARNEGIE QUARREL. THE FORMER TO OIVE A TJNTVERSITT WHICH WILL, DWARF THE LETTER'S POLYTECHXICAX, SCHOOL. [BT TBLBOHAPH TO TUB TBIBCKE.] Plttsburg. Nov. 23— According to a statement issued this afternoon by a close friend of H. C. Frick. the latter will give Pittsburg a university that will throw a deep shadow over the poly technical school Andrew Carnegie purposes to give to this city. The man who gave out the statement refuses to permit his name to be used, but he is so close to Mr. Frlck that there is no doubt of the authenticity of the information. The gift grew out of the bitter enmity existing between Mr. Carnegie and Mr. Frlck since the latter left the Carnegie Steel Company, In con sequence of a quarrel with Mr. Carnegie. That quarrel marked the neginnlng of a series of ef forts by Mr. Frlck to belittle Mr. Carnegie. Rome years ago Mr. Carnegie built what was then the finest office building in Pittsburg. Af ter the quarrel Mr. Frick bought property all around It. and hns Just finished the Frlck Building, which towers above the Carnegie Building and makes it look like a pygmy. Directly across the street ne will soon begin to build a large hotel. Some time ago Mr. Frick purchased from the Schenley estate sixteen acres of ground di rectly opposite the Carnegie Institute-. There ware rumors then that he would give Pittsburg an Institution that would surpass the Carnegie Institute. No sooner had Mr. Carnegie heard the story than he offered the city the Polytech nic School. That was some months ago, but the affair hung fire until last week, because of the city's not being able to select a site. Last week a 6lte was secured. Now comes the an nouncement that Mr. Frlck wUI again outstrip his former partner. According to the man who gave out the state ment to-day, Mr. Frlck will not only pay for the buildings, but will give the ground on which they will stand, and will then set $2,500,000 aside as an endowment fund, and more if neces sary. It has always been one of Mr. Carnegie's rules to stipulate that the city shall furnish the site for buildings he gives, and pay for their maintenance. Mr. Carnegie gave $5,000,000 for the technical school, and in a speech that be made when h« was last here said that he would give as much more ns was necessary. But the plot that the city has secured for the school would not hold more buildings than have already be*-n provided for. The site is not the one which Mr. < 'arnegie pre ferred. He wanted ■ site in the Schenley es tate, almost adjoining the plot which Mr. Frtck ha? acquired. The latter's sit^ is as large as the on« purchased by the city for the techniral school and there is almost unlimited space ad- Joining, on some of which Mr. Frick already has options. According to the statement made to-day, no matter what amount of money Mr. Carnegie spends on his buildings. Mr. Frick will double it He has several architects at work on the plans for the buildings. GRA ND TR UNK \S BIG PROJECT TO BUILD A NEW TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILWAY THROUGH PANADA. Montreal. Quebec. Xov 23. — Canada, is to have a second railway extending from ocean »o o<-ean. The announcement was made to-day by Charles M. Hay?, second vice-president and centra! man aper of th* Grand Trunk Railway. The con struction Of the new line will be hegrun as pnnn as the necessary legislation r an be obtained from the Canadian Parliament. Th» Grand Trunk will be behind the new road and will operate ft, but. as in the case of the Grand Trunk linr-s wr-st of the Detroit Riv-r. It will b» constructed under a separate corporate nnme - the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company. The new line, according to Mr Hays's statement, •will have a mileage of about three thousand miles, and the construction, including equip ment. stations, bridges, phips find other facil ities, will Involve an expenditure of from $7r>, 000.000 to $100,000,000. According to the pres ent arranpement, the new system will run through thnt portion of Northern Ontario known as New-Ontario, starting from North Ray, or Gravenhurst, Ontario, and extending through Manitoba, th» Northwest Territories and Hritith Columbia to Butte Inl^t. or Port Simpson, r. c , a? may later be determined upon. The lln<- will be nf th<» mopr modern and up to date character, having in view especially low grades. long tangents, st^l bridges and heavy rails, as well as ample station facilities and equipment for the handling of freight and pas senger traffic. "No one." said Mr Hays, "who has been studying the wonderful developments that have taken place in the Northwesi during the last few years, can fail to be deeply Impressed witb the growth of that extensive and rich territory, and our directors) feel that, in view of the apparent need of additional railway facilities and in or der tr, guarantee to the present Grand Trunk system direct connection with that very impor t-in growing section of Canada, the only wis.- policy Is to tak" active steps toward this The building of this transcontinental route naH been under consideration by the Grand Trunk directorate for pome time, but it was only during Mr Hays's recent visit to England that It was decided to carry out the project at as early a date as possible. THE POPE RECEIVES CANADIANS. TELLS A.RCHBIBHOP BKUCHE« UK WTLL WAIT TO SEE HIM THREE TEARS HENCE. Rome. N"v 2Sw — The Pope to-day gave a fare well audience to Archbishop Kruchesi. of Mon treal, in the Pontiffs private apartment. His holiness afterward went to the throne room, where Monslgnor Bruchesi presented to him all the Canadians now in Rome, numbering sixty, including several Prctestants from the provinces Of Ontario and Quebec. The Pope said he was delighted to see the Canadians, and gave his benediction to them all. On leaving Archbishop Hru. hesi said. "I hope to see your holiness on my next visit to Rome, three years hence." The Pope promptly replied. "I will wait for you." The decision of the Propaganda regarding the appointment of a new Archbishop of Chicago, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Arch- Mahon Fe< han has been postponed, principally on account of objections received from several American bishops concerning the doctrines held by Hlshup Bpaldin*. It has now been decided that the question shall be discussed at the meet ing of the Propaganda on December 15 Bishop Spaldins; continues to be considered the most likely candidate for the post.

It has been recognized that the prin cipal foreißn ships shall ask permission to en ter the mouth of the river, and we cannot un derstand the disregard of this rule A similar protest has been sent repardin^ the action of the German warship Panther, which also en tered the Orinoco without permission. "Another act which has provoked astonish ment is the hoisting of the British Rag on the Island of Patos. Venezuela's rißht to this Island cannot be questioned; geographically, histor ically and politically It is Venezuelan territory. "With the island of Trinidad., It was recognized as forming part of the old Spanish colony by the Treaty of Amiens. Trinidad was ceded to Great Britain, bui Patos Island remained, and was recognized as an Integral part of Venezuela. The English claim to Patoa Island was based on the ad of the former Spanish Governor. which was not recognized by Spain. If further evidence of Venezuela's rights are needed, the fact that th" Island is situated scarcely three mileß from the Venezuelan mainland, while it is ten miles from Trinidad, is sufficient. Thr- im pregnability of Venezuela's position is shown by the facility with which we have replied to every argument In support of the British contention advanced by the minisir-r of that country.

KeßardlnK the relations between Venezuela and (icrmany. the minister said: "Germany has never Riven Venezuela any in timation of its purpose to enforce the collection of its pending claims.

His relations with the Mayor were most cordial, he assorted, and he had no intention of resigning his office, nor had Mr. Low requested or Intimated in any way that he give up his office. He said he would probably make public a decision about the charges against Chief Croker about the middle of this week. He emphasised in various ways that he Intended to continue in his office, referring:, for Instance, to his plans for the framing of bills for the im provement -of his department to be presented at the coming session of the legislature. The legis lative measures which he has under considera tion are in no way the result of the Croker case, nor are they in the slightest degree related to it.

CONFERENCE TO-MORROW WITH COAL ROAD PRESIDENTS. Fl'T THEY ARE EX PECTED TO REFVSE CONCESSIONS. [BT TBT-KGRAPH TO THE THIBrN't. 1 Scranton. Perm.. Nov. 23.— 1t is beginning to look here as though the ten day recess of the Strike Arbitration Commission would he for naught. The independent operators refuse to Join in the amicable adiustment proposition, and public- sentiment hereabouts is behind them In their Insurgency. The Independent operators sell their coal at the breakers for rt. r > cents out of each dollar the coal brings at tidewater. Their profit is limited to this one source, while the companies which both carry and mine coal make a profit on the coal and a profit also on the hauling, and they can make up a part, at least, of any increase in the miners' wages by an increase in the freight rates, which will fall on the independent operators. The Independents declare that they will not consent to any concession to the miners unless the carrier operators come to their relief with better freight rates. On Tuesday a committee of nine of the most prominent of the Independent operators will go to New -York to see the coal presidents about a reduction. The committee will oonslst of J. L. Coke, of Plttston, and W. L. Connell, C. D. Simpson, J. L. Crawford. Dr. J. N. Rice. Joseph J. Jermyn. E. B Sturges. H. C. Reynolds and W. W. Watson, of this city. They will ask the coal road presidents for concessions in freight rates which will enable them to meet the Increase in wages which the big companies' proposed concessions to the miners will entail. The big companies are ex pected to say that they cannot cut into their earnings with a double edged sword, and the In dependents will, therefore, return and declare that the hearings by the commission must pro ceed and that they will not subscribe to an ad justment. If the big companies insist on engi neering the Independents out of court, they are prepared to recognize the United Mine Workers and .leal directly with President Mitchell. They decided on their course last night at a secret meeting here, at which twenty-eight individual operators wen r r °***nt. Th--y will meet again when the committee of nine returns from New- York. The miners are working hnrd to induce the Independents t<> join In th^ plan for a settle ment, but so far have met with no success. Un daunted, however, they have arranged for a con ference to-morrow between their chief counsel. Clarence S Dwrrow, and the chief counsel of the independents. Ira H. Burns. Mr. Burns agreed ,to the conference) but said that it could avail nothing, as his party would take no action until after the coal road presidents had been con sulted. The independent operators now mine 15 per cent of the anthracite produced. They are eighty in number, and all except two ar-» fr-»e from entangling alliances. Unless something unexpected comes of Tues day's meeting in New-York it is believed h»re that the arbitration commission, when it re ts semhies ,-in December 3, will resume wh°rc it Wt off with the taking of testimony.

After thlrty-sfai hours of unceasing labor on the | atly .me nu nt>'ii forces of men and engineers, the Penn sylvania Railroad system has made a com .paratlve clearing up of its congested terminals. The ear movement breaks all records for a similar time. It is estimated that by 5 ■ ■ row morning 929 trains, constating of !■« >.ui_T» cars, will have been moved in and out of Pittsburg, as follows: Pennsylvania Knil road, _!M train?. 14.700 cars; Fort Wayne, 1811 trains. :t.<MH» cars; i'an Handle, -l-~> trains, 11.- 023 cars; Baltimore and Ohio, 90 trains. 4,500 cars; Pittsburg am) Lake Brie, 120 trains. 6,000 cars.

ANXIOUS THAT GENERAL AND EFFECTCVB PLAN OF LEGISLATION BE READT FOR COMING SESSION. [BT TFXKGRAPH TO THE TTHBrNK.I Washington. Nov. 23.-- President Roosevelt la endeavoring to bring about an agreement of the Republican leaders In Congress on a general programme of legislation to be carried out at the coming session. This is the principal object of the conference which began Immediately after the President's return from Mississippi, and which will be continued for the next few days as the leaders continue to arrive. The President Is anxious to have the opinion of as many as possible of the leaders in Congress as to the amount of work that can be expected at the coming session, and also as to the advisa bility of calling an extra session of the LVITIth Congress if it is found to be impossible to get through with the most pressing work this winter. The President's talks with Senators and Rep resentatives cover all the Important questions that will come before Congress. Including trusts, the tariff. Cuban reciprocity and the isthmian canal. As between tariff revision and trust regulation the latter is regarded as most press- Ing, and the President is anxious to have legis lation enacted this winter, if possible. There la no disposition to go any further with tariff re vision this winter than to provide for the for mation of a plan of revision either by an Inde pendent commission or by authorizing the Sen ate Committee on Finance and the re-elected members of the House Committee on Ways and Means to take the subject up In the long recess next summer. The latter plan Is recommended by many of the Republican leaders. The President will be gratified if the Republi cans in Congress can be united on a conservative but effective plan of trust legislation, so as to assure its enactment before March 4. There la no foundation for reports which represent Presi dent Roosevelt as advocating anti-trust legisla tion of such a radical character that some of the members of hie Cabinet are arrayed in op position to him and to those of the Cabinet who agree with him. There are, of course, shades of difference of opinion in the Cabinet as to the details of the plan which the President is out lining in his message, but there is nothing like a split, as has been represented. The President's plan, based on Attorney General Kn<>x's Pitts burg speech, proposes so to amend the Sherman law as to make it more effective, and also to make it reach certain cases which, under the decisions of the Supreme Court, cannot now be covered by it. It is conservative, and will have the support of all the members of the Cabinet. The President's consultations with the Repub lican leaders began on Friday, when he saw- Senators Lodge, of Massachusetts; Burrows, of Michigan, and Scott, of West Virginia. Senator Bpooner, of Wisconsin, one of those specially invited by the President, was at the Whit* House this evening, and had a long talk with President Roosevelt. He is i one of the men whose, advice is of great value on many topics, including Cuban reciprocity, the isthmian canal and trust legislation. Speaker Henderson and Senator Allison, of lowa, arrived in Washing ton to-night, and will see the President to-mor row. Others who will call at the White House tomorrow are Senator Fairbanks, of Indiana; Representative Cannon, of Illinois, and Repre sentative Babcock. of Wisconsin. THE SESSION TOO SHORT. SENATOR JONES AND REPRESENTATIVE LANDIS AGREE THAT THERE WILL BE NO TARIFF OR TRUST LEGISLATION. $k\^ [by ilianmtM to the tribune.] Washington. Nov. 23.— From, opposite sides nt the political fence two surprisingly similar opinions of the probable results th* next session of Congress will accomplish in regard to tariff revision and trust legislation were expressed to-day by Senator Jon^s. of Arkansas, and Representative Landis. of Indiana. The Republican point of view was «* pressed by Mr Landis in the following fashion: I believe that there will be no trust or tariff leg islation in th» approaching session. We shall have. our hands full in passing the regular appropriation bills and clearing up the Ida and ends of legis lation already on the boards. It is almost a legis lative impossibility to take up any great new question or piece of legislation and do anything with it in a short session of Congress. Thi* IB true in the matter of trusts. Now In the case of tariff. I believe that Is alto gether too great a problem for the short session also. In not a believer in the sacredness of any tariff schedule, or. for that matter, of any law. But it seems to me that if some of the schedules of the present law are revised, it will he a move which will be wise, more as » means of meeting what li said to he the popular demand for revision than a move made necessary by any actual trad* or commercial condition which needs remedying. It is acknowledged that our present condition of commercial prosperity was brought about by the Dlngley tariff. in Indiana at present it Is almost Impossible to get workmen enough in any line o? industry. Farmers had to nay in cents a shock for harvesting their corn, and I man can cut fifty Shorks In a day. I"be railroads of the country are Vina.) car? short to hanile the traffic. Th» wages of the worker? have gon-» up in every line. and there i? plenty of work for every one. Why. in my State, the servant stirl question is becoming one of the treat problems: th<* cirls are migrating to the factories, where they make more money. Indiana is a network of trolleys, yet. were it pos sible to eet laborers, rails, ties and cars, many new lines would be constructed. ' t>el!«»re we have then outgrown the ten year ranic danger. A much less rose colored view of the situation was taken by Senator Jones, who agreed with Mr. Landis. however, in the opinion that ther« would be no tariff or trust legislation. Senator Jones's comments were somewhat tinged with cynicism. in explaining th-» probable inaction of Congress on these points. lie said: Trusts and tariff wen widely talked about aa needing attention at the hands of Congress during th.- campaign Election is over now. and with, it the necessity of talking about them. You will find when we come together that it wttTb* found that the session is too short to attempt ■thing in the way of legislation for either the trusts or the tariff. " It will be «aW that we'should wait for the next Congress, which will have ample time to consider these questions. In th. matter of trust legislation President Roosevelt will outline in his message what he wishes done in the way of «trent;thenim: the Sherman Anti-Trust law. Then bills will 1 ••• intrMuced which will be declared to meet the President's idei. ere will be a division of opinion over the various bills, and in the end nothing will he .lone. Thus the matter will go over to the next Cor.sress. and by that time pub lic; attention will be fixed in a different direction, and there will be no necessity for trust legislation. Just about the same proceedings will occur in the matter of tariff revision. ELEPHAXTS /.V V AMtCK. OWNERS MAY BE SUED BY WOMEN WHO WERE KNOCKED DOWN. Lockhart Brothers, who own a troup of per forming elephants, which gave a show last week at Proctor's Theatre, Newark, are likely. It is said, to be made defendants in several damage suits. in consequence of the elephants going on a rampage on Saturday night. The elephants were leaving the theatre, when a dog sprang from a wagon and barked at them. One of them started across Park Place. Newark, trumpeting wildly. This caused the whole herd to stam pede after it. In their flight the big animals knocked down several women, but did not trample any of them. Their garments were torn and soiled, however, on the muddy pavement, and they suf fered somewhat from shock. They threaten to make the Lockharts pay for the damage and embarrassment they sustained. There was great excitement before the elephants were finally rounded up and taken away by the Lockharts and their assistants.
