Warden Thinks Scheme Wai to Let "Lifer"
Get Good Merks.
Warden Johnson, of Sing Sing prison, yesterday
ordered the release from the "cooler" of Thomas
Phillips. The convict was put there yesterday after
having been discovered, a "lifer" named Emil Guz
man, declared, trying to escape from the hospital ;
in which both men were nurses. The Warden de
cided there was no attempt to escape, and that
the whole affair was simply gotten up to allow
Gasman to discover and frustrate It, and thus
earn good marks which might perhaps earn him
a commutation of his life sentence. The Warden
is satisfied that Guzman was in the affair, and is
not satisfied that Phillips wan. He believes it was
pome other nurse, and that to protect his fellow
conspirator. Guzman gave the name of Phillips, as
the man who was getting away. As rapidly as pos
sible the nurses will be replaced with others, so
that all will suffer.
Attendants Object to Fare on Charities De
partment's Boats.
'If the question of food is not settled to their
liking by this morning, the twelve attendants
jat the Morgui threaten to strike to-day, tip
to three days ago they took their meals in
Bellevue Hospital. Then Superintendent Merwin.
of the Outdoor Poor Department, under whom they
serve, decided they should eat with the deckhands
on Charities Department boats, in the building at
East Twenty-slxth-st. and East River. Mr. Mer- !
win. himself, sometimes has a meal there, too.
To this arrangement the Morgue attendants did
not object at first. But now. they say. their meals
have consisted mostly of soup, cheese and crackers,
with an occasional beef stew, while the deckhands,
who eat in the lame room, at different tables, nave
had succulent steaks. These more fortunate in
dividuals, they say. have been looking over toward
them and smacking their lips In a most suggestive
and annoying manner.

terday by two of the minority stockholders of the
Central Pacific Railway Company, a California cor
poration, to declare void and fraudulent (110.000.000

An article In "The Bulletin," a church paper pub

John's Protestant Episcopal Church, on Jersey City
Heights, caused astonishment and indignation there
yesterday. It sharply condemns a 'Xenten sub

given out by a committee of a society of Jersey
City Heights, at Phillips'* Hall, oh April *. Many
members of the society are members of Dr. Stod

to think that an outsider would be guilty of the

Cherry Hill Ruffian* Caught by Offi
cers They Injure.
After doint: police duty In the Oak-it, pre
cinct for two days, Frederick Apfel. a newly ap
pointed plain clothes policeman, was the victim
of two Cherry Hill ruftli.ins last evening, recelv
inp; blows from behind whicn In id him cut on
the sidewalk, an-.l then being kicked in the face
until he was nearly insensible while he lay I-ron
trate on the sidewalk. Apfel's strong constitu
tion and ability to "take punishment. ' however,
enabled him to recover himself and ran down
on* of his assailants, whom he put under ar
rest, while Patrolman Piess, tho officer or. post,
took care of the other rufflian, landing him in
the Oak-st. station at the same time.
Apfel thought the motive of the two men, w ho
described themselves as Michael Gaiman. nine
teen years old. of No. 7OOliver-st., and Frederick
Sane, twenty-one years oSd. of No. t>4 Jatnes-st.,
vas robbery, but the police have a different
theory for the cause of the assHii't upon the
policeman, which was the second one of such
a character in twenty-four hours.
The Oak-st. police have been having more
than their abare of trouble from the Cherry Hill
crowd in the laßt few weeks, and. as one way
of getting after the evil, Captain O'Brien has
been cleaning out the restaurants in the neigh
borhood which have been suspected of violating
the excise law. For the purpose of getting satis
factory evidence against the keepers of these
reports. Captain O'Brien recently put two citi
zens at work obtaining evidence for him, and
yesterday afternoon Policeman Joseph Murray
placed under arrest Michael Panarella, of No. 41
Oak-st.. charging him with violation of the ex
cise law, on a warrant. Soon afterward Apfel
left the station house to go down Oak-st. to his
home, and on passing No. 41 he was suddenly
atUcked by Sano. Realizing that possibly they
were mistaken sn believing that Apfel was the
informer against Panarella, it is thought, the
two prisoners suddenly left him and started to
run away, when they were arrested.
The first assault occurred when members of
the gzng rescued a prisoner from Patrolman
John A. Williams, of the Oak-st. station on
Sunday afternoon, knocked Williams down and
kicked him until he was unconscious. In the
gang that made the as&ault on Williams were
three brothers, John, Jeremiah and Daniel
O'Leary, of No. 35 Oak-st. Wiiliams says that
while down he saw the three O'Leary brothers
kick him as well as some of the others of the

Daniel O'Leary. charged with assault, were held

Machinist of Elevated Road Seriously In
jured — Almost Hits Pedestrians.
Although Daniel McKeon, a machinist, employed
by the Manhattan Railway Company, is in the
Harlem Hospital on a charge of attempted suicide,'
his wife declares he did not try to kill himself,
but Instead that he Jumped from the window of
their home, on the third floor of the tenement
house at No. 2.018 Second-aye., while under the
Fpel! of a nightmare, believlns: he was in ppril of
being -un down by a locomotive.
McKeon is forty-nine years old, and lives with
his wife and son. For years he has been in the
employ of the Manhattan Railway Company. He
slept in a front room, and twice in the early part
of last night, Mrs. McKeon paid she hpard him
talking and crying out In his sleep. Once she says
she heard him cry out:
"Look out. Billy; there enmes an engine."
About midnight Mrs. McKeon and her son were
wakened by a terrific crash from the front of the
flat. She ran into her husband's room, found his
bed empty and that the window, sash and all had
beer, torn out as he had leaped from the window.
She looked, out and found him lying on the side
James and Joseph Patta. of No. 321 East One
hundred-and-flrst-st., had been passing, and nar
rowly escaped being struck by the falling form of
McKeon. Policeman Ritter called an ambulanc,
and Dr Donovan took the man to the Harlem
Hospttal. His wife declares he did not drink, had
no trouble, and that there had been no family
quarrels. She insists he did not try to kill him
self, but that she believes he was dreaming, hih!
in his dreams saw a locomotive coming toward
him and Jumped to avoid it.
McKeon'a condition is serious.
Clerk Leaves Bellevue Hospital After Many
Years of Service.
After a service extending over thirty-five years,
Patrick Muldoon. more commonly known as "Old
Methodical." shook the duet of Bellevue Hospital
from his feet yesterday morning, and departed for
parts unknown.
"Old Methodical" for most of his career at Bolle
vue Hospital had been the chief clerk of the store
room. Whenever he had a day off he always re
turned to the hospital at exactly the same time—
9:% p. m. It is even said that the clocks were reg
ulated by his going and coming.
Thirty-five years ago he was a prosperous tea
merchant in Grand-s'c. He received an Injury to
his leg which made an operation necessary, so he
was taken to Bellevue Hospital. While he was
there business reverses overtook him, and when the
time came for his discharge his business had gone
and he waa almost penniless.
A place was given him at the hospital. Each
month he took something from his small salary,
latterly almost all of his $35 a month, and Intrusted
it to Joseph Francis, chief clerk of the property
Yesterday morning, aa If seized with a sudden
resolve. "Old Methodical" went to Francis.
"Joe," he said; "I'm going to quit, and I want
my money."
Francis was astonished. "Where are you going?' 1
he asked.
"I"m going away to some quiet little country
town to spend the rent of my days," replied "Old
Methodical." "I guess I've got enough to keep
me. haven't I Joe? '
When "Old Methodlcal's" savings were counted
up. It was found that they amounted to over
J7.200. This he bundled Into a satcheU with his
small wardrobe, bade goodby to all the attaches
of the hospital, and left without saying where he
was going.
It Is said the old man— he Is sixty-seven— has well
to-do sisters living— one *i Brooklyn and one in
Nominate Him Year and a Half in Advance,
says Ex-Senator Jones.
Ex-Senator James K. Jones, of Arkansas, chair
man of the Democratic National Committee, said
aj the Fifth Avenue Hotel last evening that im
perialism and the trusts would be the leading issues
in the next Presidential campaign. He declined to
make any predictions In reference to* candidates.
"The best way to kill off a candidate Is to nomi
nate him a year and a half ahead," said ex-Sena
tor Jones. •'Some man who never has been men
tioned for President stands Just as good a chauca
of nomination as any one who has been talked of.
I believe the party will take a strong position
against the trusts, but at the same time. It in a
question that will have to be handled with conserv
atism. By going to the extreme It would be easy
to drive away a good many consistent Democrat*."
Ex-Senator Jones Bays he thinks the Panama Ca
nal treaty will be ratisfled by the Senate.

But Dr. Van de Water Did Not Like His
Speaking Hour.
At a service in the interest of the Church Tem
perance Society in Grace Church last evening,
elements of a distinctly controversial character
were developed when the Rev. Dr. George R.
Van de Water, rector of St. Andrews Church,
took issue with the views expressed by the Rev.
H. T. Chapman, an English missionary from
the slums of London.
It was 9:30 o'clock before Dr. Van de Water
was called on to speak, and hU first rema.k
showed he was nettled by the length of the
meeting Turning to Bishop Coleman. of Dela
ware, who was presiding, he remarked that if
he were a bishop presiding at a meeting he
would not call on anybody to speak at that hour
and after the session had continued so long.
•But," he remarked, "I am not the bishop pre
siding, and I am under orders, and as it is not
my fault. I will say what I have to say."
The English speaker had dwelt :it some
length on the advantages of total abstinence.
Dr. Van De Water declared that while he would
not dissent from anything that had been said
before he was there to speak for the great ma
jority of Christian men and women who, while
despising drunkenness, did not regard it as a
sin to use spirituous liquor in moderation and
with discretion. Mr. Chapman had spoken of the
Knglish brewer who made his money, as he ex
pressed it, "out of the product which brought
so much misery into the world," and at the
same time professed Christianity and used that
wealth often for religious purposes. Dr. \an De
Water said that this country had no religious
brewers, although Americans did, sometimes,
"buiid cathedrals over the remains of merchants
who had no particular claim to being called
Christians." Dr. Van De Water declared, among
other things, that the English were the most
drunken nation In the world, and that in his own
parochial experience he had rarely known a
drunkard. This was Interpreted by many of his
hearers as a reply to the statement of Mr.
Chapman that personal influence was the most
potent agent in combating drunkenness.
Dr Van De Water afterward paid that he was
not angered at being called on to speak at a
late hour.
Woodbury to Put Heavy Hand on Those Who
Mix Garbage with Rubbish.
Street Cleaning Commissioner Woodbury ad
dressed a meeting of the Workingmen'e Hub of
the Church of the Holy Communion, Twentieth-st.
and Sixth-aye., last night, the ocraplon being the
thirty-second anniversary of the club. The Com
missioner spoke of the work of his department an.l
of its bearing upon the wellbeing of the city. Ha
said in part : j
"The pushcarts must be taken off the street".
We must find a market for the pushcart men. and
we've got one. They are going under the bridge.
They may object at first, but they will go. They
are a cla»s of people It is hard to teach.
"But there is another class more difficult to reach
and to teach," he went on to say. "a class harder
to handle. I mean the criminally careless rich.
Tha man who pays the ashman to take away his
ash after it has been refused because it is mixed
with garbage and rubbish. That man gives tns
ashman 50 cents, and in so doing h« rots your
servant and mine. That man Tve got to pur a
heavy hand on. and I'm going to. That is an im
portant question, and he if not a man who docs
his duty by the community in wnlch he lives.
Previous to the communication to the Depart
ment of State of the diplomatic, note of Sefior
Drago, the Argentine Minister of Foreign Affairs,
some South American papers had published arti
cles of mi Internationa] character, throwing In ad
vance s..:ne light upon the document from Buenoa
Ayres. They (-aid what Minister Drago purpose
ly refrained from intimating, that when foreign
residents or speculators were placed on the same
legal footing as natives European powers would
have to abide by the decisions of the tribunals of
American countries and could not think or col
lecting debts by forcible means, as in the Venez
uelan case, and. they added, In fuch emergencies
they would rely on the United States for protect
ting their territorial integrity. "Uis Ultimas
Noticlaa de El Mercurto." of Santiago, the most
important newspaper of Chili, -said in its issue of
January fi. 1903, on the subjsct:
So often we have insisted that there should -bo
held a convention of the American countries, in
order to establish certain rules of right relative to
the condition of foreigners . . Two honorable
Senators have in a recent debate touched upon the
delicate problem of the rights of foreigners domiciled
in America, whenever they suffer damages of any
kind. And. although each one of the two enter
tained different ideas with regard to the details,
both wre in accord in admitting that the aouna
do-trine consists in equalizing the rights of foreign
ers with those of nafives and consequently In in
trusting to the ordinary laws and tribunals of the
country the settlement of damages »nd "ther diffi
culties The sensible observations of those Sena
tors as well in referring to the doctrine Itself as ln
recalling historical facts and proving the necessity
for America to defend herself against Impositions,
demonstrate once more, as we have said, that for
this continent there must be accord between us
nations in view of the principles of equity and of
good government to be applied in the matter.
The. accord already exists, though not yet rati
fied; it is nothing else than the convention signed
In Mexico at the beginning of 1902 by the repre
sentatives of all th« American nations relative to
the rights of foreigners. That convention declare*!
that foreigners enjoy all the rights of natives and
can use them like the latter. In consequence the
States do not recognize In favor of foreigners other
rights than those established by the constitutions
and the laws in favor of natives. According to
that convention, the claims of any kind which a
foreigner has against a State shall be submitted
to the ordinary tribunals of that State, and can
not be. pushed by diplomatic channels except in
case of a denial of justice or an evident violation
of the principles of international right. That con
vention, which was signed also by the representa
tives of the United States, eliminates the diffi
culties foreseen by the two above mentioned Sen
ators. If the case occurred that the concessionaires
of a railway line would resort to the diplomatic
way and means about any claim on their part.
It will be said that it is useless to establish prin
ciples of right, since it is an undoubted fact that
force Is prevailing. But in the present case the
American right would be supported by the United
States, which has the force, and which Is respected
by European powers. Moreover, it is unjust to say
that force prevails absolutely over the notions of
justice: because they are not rare, fortunately, the
cases in which the abuse of force was unable to
be. the supreme law and in which an equitable so
lution was reached. In our judgment the princi
ples proclaimed in Mexico concerning the rights of
foreigners must be the complement of the Monroe.
Doctrine. If the latter bars European powers from
any enterprise capable of hurting the sovereignty
of an American nation, those principles are r neces
sary to regulate the relations of the powers with
the' republics of this continent and to determine
the Judicial and legal status of foreigners In
On the same question, so Important to North
and South America that It Is mentioned frequently.
in recent cable messages from Europe and I^atin
American countries, a Peruvian paper. "La Bolsa,"
of Arequlpa, quoted and warmly Indorsed by "I -a
Prens«L" the great Argentine paper, publishes a
long editorial, from which the following para
graphs are translated:
America, from her emancipation, has been th*
bosom whose warmth has vivified tin excess of
population Ir European countries. With their gen
erous laws ard fraternal spirit all nations of
America greet with open arms the foreigner bruis
ing to us his spirit of Initiative, his capital, his
Industrial and commercial activity, etc. . . . The
foreigner who brings so powerful an element of
progress Is not only received with brotherly senti
ment, but is treated by the public authorities with
greater consideration and respect than the. natives.
On hi* part, the foreigner reciprocates with grati
tude such a benevolent reception, and identities
himself with the country, with its joys and mis
fortunes, and binds himself to It by the sacred
ties of property and family. This is the current
way in the ordinary life of the American nation,
and such foreigners who bring us elements of
progress do not need the cannon of their mother
country to protect their rights and Interests, since
those are well guarded by the lov« of the people
and by the protective measures of the law and the
sympathetic respect of the authorities.
But let come political and social troubles, natu
rally occurring in new countries" fighting on the
read to progress, and the Interests of the foreign
ers may be wrecked like tho*s of the natives. Then
claims are born, and taken up by foreign go-be
tweens, who enlarge them, in order to get rich com
missions, etc. . . . Application Is made, to the
mother country and forcible measures resorted to,
under the pretext that no justice can be obtained.
Thin Is "the history of nearly every claim of the.
powerful European nations against the weak coun
tries of America. ... In the presence of such
peril it Is necessary to adopt energetic measures.
In our Judgment a congress of Spanish-American
nations should assemble promptly at Rio Janeiro.
Mexico, Lima or Buenos Ayrcs, and pro
claim the principles regarding the responsibility of
American cowers for violation of the rights and
Interests ox European natives. On* of those princi
ples should be that American nations are not re
sponsible to foreigners any more than to natives
for damages caused by any legitimate act of war.
international or civil- And around that principle
would be formed a kind of code of responsibilities
and indemnities to be used In our relations with

Also Puts Lorcnz Osteoclast on Patient at
Beth Israel Hospital.
in an operation that Dr. Mu<-ller performed
yeuterday at the Beth Israel Hospital he used
the Lorenz "osteoclast" for the first time hAr«\
He found It Impossible to correct the deformi
ties In one patient by the bloodless method
alone, and wan compelled to resort to cutting.
Ir. the case of Dorothy Russell, eleven years
old. suffering from clubfoot. it was necessary
to cut the tendon.
After Dr. Mueller had kneaded the foot for
awhile, he found that the resistance could not
be overcome by muscular strength, and was
obliged to sever the tendon, after which the foot
was put in a cast.
"This child will be permitted to walk at once,
but the cast must remain six months," said Dr.
William Reins, fifteen years old. was the next
patient. In hi» case the osteoclast was used.
This consists of two concave metal plates con
forming to the ankle joints and brought to
gether by screws. Pieces of rubber form the
cushion. When the screws were turned the feet
wore made straight.
