BEST TIRED OF WAITING.
Starts Himself to Look for the
Woodses.
Discouraged by the lack of success attending
the efforts of the local authorities to find the
Woods couple, Sumner Best, son of the late
Colonel William J. Best, last night started for
Philllpsburg, N. J., to make an effort to locate
the missing pair. lie is still convinced that
the Woodses are in that neighborhood, and, with
their trunks as an objective clew, hopes to fol
low them and cause their arrest. The announce
ment made exclusively in The Tribune yes
terday of the arrival of County Physician Mac
kenzie's letter In San Rafael, Cal., drew the
following comment from Alfred M. Best:
"I look for developments at once; we shall
have definite Information from Ban Rafael and
possibly warrant* charging: murder, now. The
let 'or of Mrs. Woods to my mother, published In
a local paper this morning, was really written
on April VI, and printed In San Francisco
papers, from which, I presume, it was copied
here. It was Included In affidavits made in the
case out there. The letter was much longer
and differed espentially from the copy as printed
yesterday. M> brother is sanguine of success
in his search, and clings firmly to the belief
that the couple will be discovered round Eas
°Cuunty Physician Mackenzie declared yester
day that his letter to District Attorney Boyd, at
San Kafael intimated that the absence of cer
tain organs was suspicious, but insisted that he
made no positive statement. Whether traces of
poison exist in the organs found in the grave at
Caldwell can only be determined by expert
chemical analysis, and this will not be made un
til v is ordered either by the authorities at San
Rafael or the Heat brothers. There is some rea
son to conjecture, however, that what remains
of the organs will not be adequate to furnish
any satisfactory evidence of poison, as the larg
er portion was thrown into the sewer In San
Kafael after the body was placed In the under
taker's establishment there.
li is therefore, possible that no solution will

h At the same time, the proceed

NEW CHARGES OF^GRAFF
POSTAL DEVELOPMENTS.
John M. Mast en Accused — Impor
tant Disclosures Expected Soon.
Washington, July 14. — The postofflce Inspectors are
investigating charges made against John M. Mas
ten, now assistant superintendent of the Railway
Mail Service, and formerly chief clerk of the First
Assistant Postmaster General's office. A man
named Terry, now In the government service, has
made an affidavit before the Inspectors alleging
that Masten, while chief clerk to the First Assist
ant Postmaster General, proposed that Terry pay
him $50 down and ii or &0 a month to secure rein
statement in a former position in Masten's bureau.
Terry charges that he was originally a $600 em
ploye in the Dead Letter Office, that he was re
moved under an order of Masten and put into tha
city postofflce, that he protested, and. finally, that
Masten suggested his getting an outside party, a
close friend of Masten and a former employe of the
postal service, to help him. The affidavit alleges
that Masten gave Terry assurance that if he paid
the amount mentioned he could get back; that he
went to Masten's house about the matter, but did
not pay the money. Terry charges further that
subsequently he made an affidavit of these charges
and handed it to Masten to present to First Assist
ant Postmaster General Johnson, and that the affi
davit did not reach Mr. Johnson. According to the
charges. Masten subsequently wai. asked by Terry
for the affidavit and refused to return it, and Terry
thereupon placed the information before the Civil
Service Commission, which took up the matter
with the President.
The Federal Grand Jury In this city is consider
ing several important postoffice cases, which are
expected to prove of widespread interest. Postmas
ter General Payne said this afternoon that he ex
pected there would be some Important news during
his absence on his trip along the coast, and that
he expected the grand Jury would furnish some in
teresting developments. There is no definite In
formation available as to the identity of the cases,
but the jury has been working on them for some
time.
An agreement has been reached between the
Postoffice Department and the Civil Service Com
mission regarding the transfer of employes from
other departments to the postofflce department.
The new regulation provides that In such transfers
it must be shown that the person to be transferred
will be employed on work similar to that previously
performed by him. and has qualifications which will ,
enable him to perform such work better than a \
person selected from the eligible register of tha
commission. The ponding: investigation has dis
closed a number .if irregular transfers.
The resignation of George A. C. Chrlstlancy, to
whom was granted a leave of abse.nce as law clerk
of the department shortly after the sensational
rifling of the Assistant Attorney General's safe
by Mrs. Tyner. has been under discussion at tr.f»
department, but there will be no final action before
Postmaster General Payne's return to the city. Mr.
Payne will leave here to-morrow -morning, and will
be aboard the revenue cutter while it makes its
regular cruise, which will extend as far as Boston,
and possibly up to the Maine coast.
He said to-night that he had not made his vaca
tion plans yet, but that he would like to revisit j
Poland Springs, Me., if possible. He expects to be
away most of August.
The report of the inspectors In the case of the
General Manifolding Company, of Franklin, Perm..
which employs a son of William H. Landvolgt, for
merly chief of the registry division; with which the
company had dealings, and now chief of tho classi
fication division, has not yet been submitted to the i
Postmaster General. ,
Paul Herman, of Rutherford. X. J.. who has ob
tained the money order contract, will be here to
morrow to sign the contract and make the final
arrangements. The first delivery under the con
tract will be In September.
PRESERVATION OF EGGS.
[FROM THE TRIBUNE BUREAU.]
Washington, July 14.— Strong and healthy chick
ens hatched from eggs which had been preserved
for a whole year is the proof of the efficacy of a
new method of keeping eggs fresh for any length of
time, which is reported to the State Department by
United States Consul General Richard Guenther at
Frankfort, Germany. This remarkable result is ob
tained simply immersing the eggs in a 10 per
cent solution of silicate of soda, commonly called
"liquid glass." Thlß process produces the formation
of a coating which renders the eggs perfectly air
tight, and so treated the eggs retain their #eesh
taste for many months, if not indefinitely.
The preserving solution la best prepared by dis
solving one pound of liquid glass in four quarts of
cold water. - are then immersed for a
short time in this solution, which should be kept in
a giazed earthenware vessel. If one of these pre-
Mrved eggs is to be boiled the shell must be first
perforated in order to prevent cracking.
VIOLATING THE REVENUE LAWS.
Washington. July —A circular of instructions
to internal revenue officers and all others con
cerned has been issued by the Commissioner of In
ternal Revenue, calling attention to irregularities
and violations of law that now exist In the hand
ling and sale of manufactured tobacco, snuff, cigars
and cigarettes by Jobbers and dealers. A practice
generally prevails of exposing these taxable articles
for sale separated from the package* bearing the
stamps denoting the payment of the internal
revenue tax. This, it is said. Is a serious violation
of the law and regulations which It is the pur
pose of the commissioner to remedy.
Jobbers arid dealers must get their stock on hana
in order before November 1 next, after whicn
date all manufactured tobacco snuff, cigars
and cigarettes found on the market exposed ror
sale not protected by stamps will be seized ana
the holders proceeded against In accordant wiu»
law.

SHERIFF SAVES NEGRO.
New-York Farmers Read// to Lynch
the Man for Assaulting Child.
Albany, July 14. — The deputy sheriff at Cox
packie prevented this afternoon the lynching of
James Little, a negro, nineteen years old, from
Summprhnrst, N. J. Early this morning, n*»ar
New-Baltimore, he assaulted Emma Cole, eleven
years old, the daughter of Joseph Cole, a farmer,
living a mile back of New-Baltimore. She is
seriously injured.
The child, her five-year-old sister, and Maud
Lobdell, age tv^lve, were picking berries by the
roadside in the long woods between New-Balti
morf and Coxsarkie, a mile from home, when
Litl»f accosted them, asking for something to
eat. The j_iobdell girl went to her home, but her
mother was not there. Returning to her
companions, she found the negro dragging

Kmma Cole into the woods. She ran to her aid.
and the negro pulled out a handful of her hair.
She then ran away with the little Cole girl,
screaming for help. Little threatened the child
with death if she moved, and then he disap
peared.
The child's father and neighbors met her on
the way home, and at once organized a party to
search the woods. A description of the negro
was sent to neighboring towns, and an hour
later Little was captured on the railroad track
near Coxsackie by Roy Cutler. Little confessed,
and was locked up.
News of the capture reached New-Baltimore,
and one hundred and fifty angry farmers start
ed for Coxsackie. augmented by moulders on
strike and river men. all frankly vowing their
intention to lynch the negro. To-day was the
strikers' "benefit day" In Coxsackie, and the
town was crowded.
Deputy Sheriff Stunner Van Loon, realizing
that the coming of darkness would mean the
breaking of the flimsy local lockup and the vio
lent death of the prisoner, smuggled the negro
out and took him down the river on the boat to
Catskill. where there Is a well built Jail.
Little says he had been living in Albany, and
yesterday started to walk to his home In New-
Jersey.
TWO MILLION ACRES LEASED ILLEGALLY
Muskogee, Ind. T.. July 14.— A decision has been
handed down by Judge C. "W. Raymond, United
States judge for the Western District of Indian
Territory, which will Invalidate leases on two
million acres of Creek Indian lands. Judge Ray
mond holds that the parent of an Indian has no
right to leas* the land of his minor children un
less he has by due course of legal procedure been
made the legal guardian.
In the Creek Nation there are 8.072.513 acres of
land; of this 2.600,000 acres have been leased to out
siders. It is roughly estimated that only about
five hundred thousand acres have been leased le
gally, and that the remainder is now held by per
sons who can be removed by minors going before

GIANT STONE COLUMNS LANDED.
Another Stage of Their Journey to New
Cathedral Completed.
The two big columns for the cathedral of St.
John the Divine, which arrived at the pier at West
One-hundred-and-thirty-nfth-sr. last week, were
safely landed yesterday. The first was rolled off
the big barge Benjamin Franklin at 10 o'clock,
when the tide hac*. risen just enough to bring the
deck of the barge on a level with tho skids which
had been In id from the boat to terra flrma. By the
time the first great stone was on solid ground the
deck of the Franklin had risen above the wharf,
and the huge skida lay at an angle rendering the
unloading of the second Impossible. The workmen
then settled down to a long wait for the tide to fall
to the requisite level, which it did about 4 o'clock,
when the si-_ond> column was rolled ashore.
The unloading was accomplished, as far as force
was required, by the strong derrick of the Frank
lin. A heavy steel cable was passed several times
around the three-inch sheathing of pine that en.
cased the monolith, and the engine was started.
This set the big stone rolling, and the services of
the men were required only to guide it and to re
tard Its progress with 12-inch blocks. The skids,
of which there were about a dozen, were 12x12
timbers, In pairs, one timber of each pair resting
on the other.
The engineer of the Franklin, who is something
of a wit, said there had been some disposition to
swear at the trouble encountered in handling the
columns, but that the men were easily restrained
by the mere hint that it was a church Job. He
also criticised a bystander tor calling the sections
of the two great shafts monoliths. "They're in
two pieces," said he. "If a column of one stone is
a monolith, half of It can't be more than a semi
11th. or a hemlllth, or a halpsteln. or. perhaps,
since they're for the cathedral, a demi-John." The
same authority declared that a careful examina
tion of the first stone after It had been rolled off
the Franklin shewed that the time honored as
sertion that "a rolling stone gathers no moss" was
no idle dream."
Tbe two smaller sections of the two big shafts,
which are below decks, will be hoisted ashore to
day, as will the bases, also. A special truck Is
building to be used In hauling the big sections;
weighing nearly ninety tons each, up the hill to
the cathedral site. Nobody about the dock yester
day could say when this truck would be ready,
but it was said that It would be drawn by forty
horses, assisted by a steam engine at the top of
the bill and connected with the team by a steel
cable and a powerful winch.
THE CALLAO CHASING PIRATES.
United States Gunboat in Hot Pursuit of

San Francisco. July 14. — Information has been
received from the Orient that the United States
