A. Butler, of the District Attorney's staff, made the
arrest at the home of her parents. No. 83 Vernon
:.v... Lens Island City. Miss Leonora I/eighton.
the sister of Mrs. Noble, who got bail for her re
lease after the magistrate had committeed her to
Jail la December, fainted when the nature of De
tective Butler's visit was made known. The aged
mother of Airs. Noble, who is an Invalid, was com
pletely prostrated by the arrest of her daughter.
Sh*- had confidently expected her discharge. Mrs.
Noble bad Ix-en told by ■ friend that ••• could be
bail< d the same evening she was arrested, and she
expressed great surprise when told «he would have
to spend the night In the. Jail.
District Attorney Gregg, when asked to make a
statement regarding the case after Mrs. Noble's ar
rest last evening, said:
Mrs. NobU haa bean Indicted, pharged with the
murder or her husband. Sl»- will be treated ex
actly the *anie ;<s any oilier person similarly •uu-

said, of a startling character. Among other things
it will be shown, it is said, that Mrs. Noble had one
black eye when -:■<> was arrested. That, taken in

be presented to show a motive for the shooting.
ART WORKS OF THE CITY.
Municipal Commission Starts to
Catalogue Them.
Tho annual report cf the Municipal Art Commis
sion says that ninety questions were submitted to
the commission in 1904 nnd the total amount of
money Involved approximated Jl'S HMH. The com
. s collection of books, pamphlets, periodicals.
photographs and prints on civic art in Europe and
America has been considerably enlarged. It now
■ 22t' bound volumes, sirty-f-lx maps separ
ately mounted and catalogued, several hundred un
bound pamphlets and between 2,4u0 and 2,500 photo
graphs and prints relating to seventy-two citles\
making it one of the best collections upon this sub
ject, it is said, in the United States. A thorough
card catalogue has been prepared, making It possi
ble to secure in a moment all the material on a
given subject
Ever since the reorganisation of the commission
subsequent to the enactment of the present char
ter, the necessity of a complete catalogue of the
works of art belonging to the city has been real
ized. Material from which one could be compiled
was found to be widely scattered and in many in
stances wholly lacking. A summary inquiry fur
ther showed that the number of works of art ac
quired by the city from time to time was much
larger than had beer supposed. Many were un
known to the public, and. scattered through various
public institutions, had almost been lost sight of
by tho city authorities themselves. The prepara
tion of a comprehensive catalogue was begun last
year and has been completed for the Borough of
Manhattan. A tentative list appears in a supple*
ment to ih» report.
VETERANS IN WRANGLE.
Survivors of Two Wars Tilt Over
Appropriation.
Veterans of two wars, the Civil and Spanish-
American. are et sword points in "vVestchester Coun
ty over an appropriation of $9,000 made by the Board
of Supervisors for the relief of sick and Indigent
soldiers. At the meeting of the Bourd of Super
visors yesterday they indulged In bitter words.
p. w*. Bartlett, commander of Norman Crosby
Post, of Spanish War Veterans of New-Rochelle.
said that although the resolution read that a part
of the money should be given for the relief cf his
comrades, yet they had been unceremoniously
turned down by the Grand Army of the Republic
when they applied for help. Commander Briggs, of
Peeksklll declared that tne Spanish war veterans
when they are elck wanteded to li\-e in the Waldorf-
Astoria Hotel. Others said the Spanish war veter
ans are young men. and not In need of assistance.
The Board of Supervisors cut off the debate by
voting to give the appropriation to the Grand
of the Republic and allowing the-n to use
their dlscrt-t Jon In distributing It among the younger
veterans.
KILLED WIFE AND CHILDEEN.
Drunken Cook in Chicago Murdered His
Family and Attempted Suicide.
Chicago Jan. 11.— With a pistol and razor John
Killer, a cook, killed his wife and infant daughter
Annie to-day, fatally wounded another daughter.
Martha two and one-half years old. and then shot
and stabbed himself. Drunken rage is believed by
the police to have been the causa of the tragedy.
Mrs. Miller appeared to have made a terrific strug

body. There was a cut four inches long in the bark
of her head, and a six Inch gash near her heart.
She had also received a bullet through her lungs.
The unconscious forms of the Miller family were
found In their home by the police, who had been
summoned by neighbors, and the bodies were hur
ried to the hospitals. Mrs. Miller died on the way.
Her younger child was dead before removal by the
nolice and the older child survived only a short
time after arriving at a hospital. Miller wiil prob

money in drink, and that his wife was forced to

had saved part of her earnings as a waitress. The
tragedy was preceded by a quarrel over this money,
which Miller had tried 10 secure, for the ostensible
purpose of starting a restaurant.
CALLS GROUT INQUIRY ILLEGAL.
Counsel for Gas Trust Declares It Should Be
Made in Private.
Johr. A. Garver, who appeared for the Ka» com
par.y at Mr. Grout's investigation, said yesterday
afternoon that he had instructed his clients not
to answer questions put to them on the rround
that the legal time in which the Controller should
have begun such an examination of the claims pre
periU-d had elapsed; that the Controller had already
reduced the claims; that the matter was in court
on an injunction restraining the payment of the
claim*, and that an investigation within the prov
ince of the Controller to make should be made In
private, as a public exploitation of the business
and business methods of the gas companies tended
to der>rive the companies and the witnesses of
their constitutional rights.
The Controller's hearing will go on to-day. It
is expected that Charles E. Phelps, of Baltimore,
who helped to build the municipal lighting plant
in that city, and George F. Ellicott, of Chicago, an
electrical engineer, will be on hand to testify con
cerning the cost of lighting.
Controller Grout expressed himself as much
pleased yesterday with the court ruling which
threatens with prison for contempt those who de
. 1,1 .■ to M*w«r lhe Queßtlons Propounded in the
lighting Inquiry.
"The ruling Is plain," Mr. Grout said. "Those
who refuse to answer must remain In prison until
they do answer. The court* are with us. and the
lighting companies must submit."

BROWN SEVEN EASY.
Defeated, 6 to 0, by Princeton in
Slow Game.
The Brown hockey seven last evening made Its
first appearance of the season In this city at the St.
Nicholas Rink, and was shut out by Princeton, «
to 0. It mi the poorest of the college games seen
here this year, and there were few brilliant plays
on either side. The Providence players apparently
had no conception of team play and their work
was generally crude. With a little more experience,
however, the seven may be got Into some sort
of form. It can be said, however, that the uni
versity ha 3as good a goal tender as any of the
colleges in the league. Hill, who occupied this
position, showed astonishing quickness last even
ing and kept many well directed shots from count
ing against Brown.
The game was clean throughout. Not a man had
to be sent to tho side line for disobeying rules.
Lcake played a strong game for Princeton, scoring
three goals. There were several scrimmages in
front of Brown's cage, from which the Orange and
Black men should have scored had they been more
on the alert.
Two changes were made on the line-up of the
second half. Sweet relieved Marbell for Brown,
and King took Rafferty'B place for the Tigers.
There was little lifting by either side, and that at
tempted was wild and weak. The Jerseymen did
some fast passing, but these occasions were few
and far between. Chew now and then did some
fast skating, which once resulted in bis landing the
rubber In the net. The attendance was large, but
enthusiasm was rather scarce.
Princeton made three goals In the opening half
and three in the second. For the first ten minutes
of play In tho first half it seemed as If the Provi
dence players would make It a hard battlo for the
Tigers. Then Princeton started in to win. Leake
got the first goal for the Tigers on a long shot from
the side. Five minutes later he tallied again, and
two minutes after Chew followed suit. After that
it was on!/ a question of whether or not Brown
would be shut out.
The game had not progressed long in the second
half when Winter; from a scrimmage, made the
fourth goal for Princeton, and then Leake, on an
other long and pretty shot from the side, scored
the fifth. Zahnholser made the final tally after
Hill had struck the rubber from the net. The line

whs no match for the Crimson, and almost the
entire game saw the whole "Tech" team bunched
in front of their goal trying to stop the Harvard
attack. The Harvard team played well together,
and whenever the forwards had a chance to take

work. Newhall. at coverpoint. played the best in

won by a vote of C 8 to 58 at the annual meeting of

tion wus led by the Rev. Dr. George L. Curtis, pas
tor of the First Presbyterian Church, of Bloom
field; Dr. William R. Broughton. a dentist of Man
hattan, and Allison Dodd <>f the I^ehigh Valley
Coal Company. They declared that to allow Sun
day golf on the new course, on the Henry Uinden
meyer estate, off Ridgewood-ave., In Glen Ridge,
north of tho present links, would interfere with the
services at the Broughton Memorial Chapel. Those

president of the club, D. H. Stamlish, and tho secre
tary. H. M. Edwards. Their plea, based, bo they

affairs and condition, was that the organization
wus losing in members. b..i-au.«e It did not. like other
clubs allow play seven days a week. Thirty-one
members of the club did not vote. It U believed
that Sunday golf playing will split the club and
that another organization will be formed by those
opposed to the playing of the game on the Baft
bath The club elected these officers: Pres.deut.
D li Staudiah; secretary. H. M. EUwards; financial
secretary. Eugene l^e Roy Cadmus; treasurer. Har

diversion of traffic from the Cherry Run route of
the former road has b*en settled. This result was
reached at a recent conference between the officials
and attorneys of the two roads, all questions in
volved in the suit having been amicably adjusted.
An important feature of the settlement is the re
opening of the Cherry Run gateway for the inter
cbsase of traffic between the Baltimore and Ohio
and Reading Railway and tho restoration of
frt<*ndly traffic relations between the Baltimore
and Ohio and Western Maryland companies.
This settlement is of wide interest and importance

road and Gould interests, as the Baltimore and
Ohio is controlled by the Pennsylvania and the
Western Maryland is part of the Gould system.

CHOKER MAY SELL WANTAGE.
Still in Dark About Jockey Club's Eehaal,
He Says.
London. Jan. 11. — A serious scandal promise* to
develop in racing? circles as a result of the Jockey
Club's refusal to allow Richard Croker to train hi*
horses at Newmarket. The history of ths affair
given out by friends of Mr. Croker Is that, when at
th« Newmarket sales in September Mr. Croksr as
peared as a bidder for certain yearlings. ho was
informed that he was opposing Lord Marcus 6er«s>
ford. who. It Is well known, has entire charg« of
Kins; ward's racing stables. This did not 4«t«r
Mr. Croker. and It was suggested to him. so It is
said, that if he Insisted on competing he would not
be allowed to train his horses at Newmarket. T&9
story goes that Mr. Croker. however, was not In
fluenced, declaring that his conduct was not dis
courteous, as he was dealing through an agent, who
did not know his adversary In the transactions, «ad
merely carried out his instructions.
In an Interview in Dublin. Mr. Croker saM hs
was still completely In the dark regarding th)
whole affair, and expressed astonishment at tha
fact that the stewards did not give a reason for
their action.
A newspaper to-day says Mr. Croker intends to
sell his homo at "Wantage. England. For soaks
months past he has been living In Ireland, where it
Is reported, ho will live* altogether hereafter.

HERHMAffN SAYS HE WILL QUIT.
Chairman of National Baseball Commission
Will Resign.
Cincinnati. Jan. August Herrmann, president
of the Cincinnati Club, will resign as chairman of
ths National Baseball Commission. This was an
nounced to-day. All the» baseball men now here
are trying to prevail on Mr. Herrmann to reconsider
his determination to resign. Mr. Herrmann has
announced, however, that he is through with the
national commission, and will not change his de
cision. The minor league men hope that Mr. Herr
mann will not resign, but. If he Insists, they say
they wish John T. Brush, president of the New-
York National League team, to succeed him. It Is
regarded us scarcely likely that Mr. Brush will ac
cept the position. An effort will also be made to
have the minor league represented on the commis
sion, In which case either George Tebeau. or How
ard Griffiths, and one more minor league man,
possibly P. T. Powers, may be admitted to the
commission.
The commission adjourned to-day. Besides de
ciding to Investigate the "Jack" Taylor case, the
commission adopted a number of verbal changes la
the national agreement, and referred to the Na
tional and American leagues for further consider
ation the demands of the National Association of
Minor Leagues for an increase in the price of
drafted Playors. Other chants in the agreement
atout which th-r* was no contest W ere accepted by
all concerned, and will be formulated and sent la
