Frank H. Croker, who was killed while speeding his automobile on the sands at Ormond, pore than a week ago. The closest and most intimate associates of Mr. Crok«r were unpre pared for the striking change In his appear >nce which he" showed yesterday. His hair Is almost white. Formerly vigorous and aggres eive, he Is now rilent and retiring. He walks with a cane and speaks in a subdued voice. He pjanifested every desire to shun publicity and spoke to those who came to see him only in a gate! and matter of fact way. In order to facilitate the arrival of Mr. Croker sad to screen him as far as possible from, pub jlc notice or any questions, the tug Robert Pal mer was chartered by a party of friends and vent down the bay to meet the, vessel. On tb» ror**^ here. it was learned, Mr. Croker seldom left his room. Ho took a turn around the deck early in the morning, smoking a cigar, but after that he era* not seen again in the course of the day. He ■ <-;;plod a deck suite with his niece, Miss Bowman. On the tug to meet Mr. Croker ■were John Fox. president of the Democratic Club; Andrew Freedman, General Howard Car roll and Richard S. Croker. his son. The courtesy of tho port was extended to him, and a special revenue officer -went on the tug to see That bis baggage was passed as quickly as pos sible. "When the tug ran alongside the giant ves gel Mr. Croker was not on deck. The party at onoe boarded the boat, and Richard S. broker •west to his father's stateroom. They were there alone for some time. Later Mr. Croker appeared on deck and shook hands with his friends. Thomas F. Smith, secretary of Tammany HalU John Hettrlck, secretary to August Bel iront, and F. M. McCann, a nephew of Mr. Croker, went down on the revenue cutter and joined Mr. Croker at Quarantine. After a brief talk on the deck Mr. Croker, accompanied by )Ir. Fox, Mr. Freedman and the ether members of the two parties that had gone down the bay, left the vessel and went on the tug and started fcr New-York. All of Mr. Croker's baggage was tutec on the tug. As soon as the boat reached the city Mr. Croker went directly to his city home, where he consulted with the family about arrangements for the funeral. After leaving. the family home at No. 5 East Mh-sL. Mr. Croker, accompanied by Andrew Dmfliniill and Mr. McCann, his nephew, was drive; 1 , to Pt. Leo's, where the body of his son wafi taken on Its arrival from Ormond a week aso yesterday. He entered the church by way of the rectory, the door of which opens in 29th et About the door at the rme was a curious croud waiting to ccc the former Tammany chieftain. It was kept hi check by half a dozen detectives and a detail o* uniformed policemen frorr: ihe West 30th -st. station. Mr. Croker, after a brief chat with Father Ducey. went at once to the chapel, whore lay thfe boCr of fcis son. There he remained some xia* •lore. After being in the chapel ahd the rectory lor almost two hours, Mr. Croker entered fcis carriage again and was driven uptown. The body of Frank H. Croker was taken from the chapel of St. Leo's Roman Catholic Church shortly after 10 o'clock last night and removed in a hearse to the family home, at No. f. East 74ih-Bt. When the hearse had left the church a large moving van was driven up. and into this were loaded the hundreds of flor.il pieces sent by friends and relatives of the young man.

Re serves, Expecting Trouble. The grievance committee of the unions represent ed by elevated roads and subway employes held a conference yesterday lasting for three hours with General Manager Hedley, of the Intcrborough Rapid Tralsit Company. No settlement was reached, and the committee will call at noon to day and hear the decision of the company on the demands, so that at least there will not be a strike tielng up the elevated and subway trains be fore that time. At 6 o'clock yesterday afternoon Commissioner McAdoo sent secret orders to the commanders of every precinct in Manhattan to hold every incom ing platoon after 12:30 a. m. to-day In reserve in the station in expectation of trouble in the subway. This means that no policeman arriving after 12:30 o'clock will be allowed to leave the station. Six thousand extra policemen will be on hand. Mr. Mc- Adoo could not be seen last night and none of the police officials would say why the order was given. It would seem, from the Commissioner's order, that the Interborough officials are not likely to grant the petition. A rumor was heard last night that the elevated and subway men were expecting aid from the sur face car men, who are members- of the Amal gamated Association of Street Railway Employe-.;. Bo far as known the surface car employes are not organized, although jeveral attempts to organize them have been made. The grievance committee consists of twelve men representing the motormen, still a branch of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers; the old fire men and the guards, conductors and others. The spokesman for the motormen was William L. Jenck. George E. Pepper was the chairman of the committee of conductors and guards, and H. H. Pinney was chairman of the firemen's delegation. There were several . more employes besides the committee of twelve at the conference. An attempt was made to. see Mr. Hedley at 11 a. m.. but he. was out. The i commtttr* r.-as angry' and appeared inclined to think that Mr. Hedley evaded seeing them, but It was shown afterward that, not knowing they were' coming, he had gone to keep an appointment. The committee then left word that the members would call at 2 p. m. In the mean time President Pepper, of the New-York Division of the Amalgamated Association of Street and Electric Railroad Employes, told the reporters that the Interborough had already violated one of the terms of the agreement made last week. "The company," he said, "has run in another trip. on the subway train guards without requiring them to work apparently more than ten hours a Jay. It does carry the day's work Into nearly eleven hours, however, and cuts th« time of rest from fifteen minutes to five or six at the end of every trip." President Pepper also said that on Tuesday night fifteen guards had been taken off the trains intoxi cated. He did not know how the men got drunk or for what reason, but to him it looked as if the service was becoming demoralized. A representative of the Interborough company said that it. never had been understood that the guards Tver* to have fifteen minutes' rest at the end of every trip. They did not require so much rest as the motormen. who needed it more on ac count of the strain they went through with watch ing th« signals and tho tracks. He also paid that, because August Belmont was head of the Civio Federation, pome, of the men's leaders seemed in clined to think that he would grant anything to avoid a strike. CONFERENCE WITH MR. HEDLEY. When the committee returned at 2 p. m. Mr. Tf^dley was there. The committee appeared to be in an angry mood. President Pepper was asked if International President Mahon would not be asked to interfere before a strike of conductors and guards could be called. "It Is not necessary," he said. "We do not need Mr. Mahnn to teach us what to do. We can order our own strikes." The conference was over at about 6 p. m. uiid Mr. Hedley said: We have heard what the men have to say through th"ir representatives, and I have told them our side. Everything has been gone Into fully, de mands have b*'en made and discussed, and we will give the committee the decision of the company at noon to-morrow. That la all. Nothing has been settled. He was askod if he expected a strike in case the demands were refused. He replied that he did not know. He could make no predictions, but th«re was no reason to expect a strike. <"hairman Jenek, of the motormaivs delegation, said that the whole trouble was in the subway. Thorfi was no trouble on the elevated roud. "The trainmen are compelled to make seven trips a. day. instead of six, on the locals, and eight, in stead of seven, on the express trains." he said. "The motormen have not obtained the fifteen min utes off at the f-nrt of each trip. These are. our grievances. There will be no strike until we get the decision of the company at noon to-morrow." "Will there be a strike?" he was asked. "How am Ito tell?" was the reply. "Wo must have our demands. I can tell you better to-mor row, afttr we have the answer from the company." It was remarked that before the grievance com mittee called there had been more applicants than usual for places at the, lnterborou*h office. "We are In constant communication with the grand, chiefs of our respective bodies and they are ready to come on to New-York to advise with us at a moment's notice," said one of the committee last night. "The situation became so tense this afternoon during the conference that several of the committee were In favor of giving the Interborough officials fifteen minutes to grant their demands, but wiser counsel prevailed and Hie conference, in tho icorning is to follow. We arc sut lulled by this time that the company has be^n bluffing us at every meeting and that their uliimute intention Is. if th^y can accomplish It. to disrupt tho organizations oC the mibway employes. PREVIOUS STRIKES THREATENED. Th« Interborough has hud two ether serious dis agreements with it* employes In less than two years In both of which, rather than allow the motormen to carry out their threats of strike, tho management yielded to most of the demands. In October, 1903, th« motormen on the elevated rail roads protested affain*t a certain clause in a circu lar relating to physical examinations. They de ('ontinued on •trend pass.

Train Dashes Into Party of Women Near Hornellsville, N. Y. [bt telegraph to the tribune.] Hornellsvllle. N. V., Feb. I.— A sleighing party of members of the Universallst Church of this city, on their way home from Arkport, was struck by a passenger train on the Pittsburg. Shawmut and Northern Railroad at Stephens Crossing at 7:30 o'clock this evening. The ac cident occurred about a mile west of this city. Seven women were killed outright and six in jured. All were of this city. The dead are: Mrs. H. B. Moore, Mrs. L. Shaw, Mrs. J. Hal lett, Mrs. C. C. Graves. Mrs. C. Thomas. Mrs. M. CJillett and Mrs. D. A. Patchen. Mrs. F. Boughten, Mrs. S. Rowley, Mrs. J. Coates and Mrs. E. Bond are believed to be fatally injured, and Mrs. F. Green and Mrs. Wallace C. Clark received serious hurts. Two slelghloads of the church people left here at 2 o'< lock this afternoon for Arkport as guests of Mrs. Baldwin, on of the members liv ing there. Mrs. C. C. Graves was the chaper on of the party and after an afternoon at Mrs. Baldwin's home, they started on the return trip. At Stephens Crossing, the first tletgh crossed In safety, but its occupants saw a train coming and realized the danger of those follow ing. They motioned and shouted to the driver of the second sleigh, but he did not heed the wiroing until too late. Then he leaped in timo to save his own life. The train which left this city at 7:25 p. m. for Bolivar was late and was trying to make up time when it reached the crossing. With hardly a second's warning it dashed into the sleighload of people, hurling them Into a snowbank, some a distance of fifty feet. There were thirteen women in the sleigh and not one of them escaped. The snow was covered with bleeding and mangled bodies, and only with difficulty were those in the sleigh ahead able to find them in the darkness. " v tralr wan jilted u^r-and the dead and Injlred brought to this c(: dead to their home* and the injured to the hos pital. Four at the hospital, it is believed, will die. The dead and injured are among the most prominent people of the city. BOERS AS FILIBUSTERS. Story That Eighty of Them Are to Fight for Guatemala.

College graduates were severely criticised last evening at Cooper Union by President G. Stanley Hall of CU-.rk University for their fail ure to marry. In the course of a public a.l dress under the auspices of the Free Lecture Bureau of the Board of Education he declared that from an investigation confined to sixteen of the largest colleges in the country he had discovered that, allowing the girls eighteen years after graduation in which to marry, only T>O per cent did so, while of the men, allowing them twenty-five years after graduation, 20 per cent remained bachelors. Furthermore, the offspring of college gradu ates was below the average number, so much so that were al! the children of college gradu ates boys they would not begin to maintain the size of the college in their fathers" days. In speaking of the education of children, I>r. Hall defended the so-called "fads and frills." maintaining that they were essential for the de velopment of the child's mind. AGAIN INDICT MITCHELL.

At the city magistrates' meeting yesterday a communication was' read from the Juvenile Asy lum, stating that the capacity of the asylum at Dobbs Ferry would be limited to 300, and that no Hebrew children, colored children or girls under seven would be admitted. The letter made several of the magistrates angry. Magistrate Pool suggested that it should be put "under the taV'.e." Magistrate Ommen characterized it as a remarkable docu ment, and expressed surprise that an institu tion which was supported largely by city funds should exclude any person on account of age, sex, color or religious belief. This opinion pre vailed. The new magistrate, Mr. Steinert, took his stand with the rest that it should be pigeon holed. President Tifft of the Board of Education, who is secretary of the Juvenile Asylum, said last night that the magistrates evidently were under a misapprehension. There was no inten tion to make any racial or religious distinctions. The asylum was being moved from Washington Heights to Dobbs Ferry, where the cottage system would be in foree — fifteen cottages, ac commodating twenty-two persons each, a total of about three hundred. In the present asylum were about a thousand children, so that it be cama necessary to send about seven hundred to their parents or guardians. The Hebrews had an institution for their own children, he said, and plans were being matured for another institution for Hebrew children ex actly on the lines of the Juvenile Asylum. As to the negroes, he said, it would be impossible to keep the negro ehll'! - en in cottages with the white ones. When more cottages were built there would be provision for black as well as white. These restrictions were only temporary, and Mr. Xittt thought (he asylum, with Its record, could afford to take whatever criticism was offered, pointing to that record for answer. The letter to which the magistrates objected was signed by Mr. Tifft, but prepared by How ard Townsend, counsel for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. POISON FOR MRS. ROGERS. It Was Sent with Bribe in a Letter to Her Jailer. [BY TELEGRAPH TO THE TF.IFTNE.] Montpelier, Vt.. Feb. — An attempt to enable Mrs. Mary Rogers to commit suicide and cheat the gallows came to light to-night. A poison package, accompanied by two one-hundred-dol lar bills, was within a few days sent to one of the officers in the prison with the promise that if he delivered the package to the woman and she died before the day of execution he would receive another similar present. The letter was received by one of the jailers in the prison last week. It was postmarked "Boston," and when he opened it the two one hundred-dollar bills appeared, together with a neatly folder! package. The note inside read: If you will see that Mary Rogers receives the inclosed powder and dies before the day of the execution, you will receive another letter con taining a like sum. Governor Bell sai<l to-night: "It is true that one of the jailers received » letter containing money from a mar in Boston asking that be deliver a package of poison to Mrs. Rogers. He turned it over to Superintendent Oakes of the prison." A hearing on the petitions to reprieve Mrs. Kogerss sentence was given by Governor Hell In Montpeller this afternoon. One of the petitions was from the men who would be charged with inflicting the death penalty on the woman. Governor Bell sai>l he would a nn ounce his de cision to-morrow afternoon.

Union Theological to Build New Home on Part of Gift. Announcement of the gift of $I.l(>>.<>oo to Union Theological Seminary was mnde last night by Dr. Charles Cuthnert Hall, president of the faculty, after si meeting of the directors of the seminary at No. T* l "* Park-aye. Apart from the statement that the gift cornea from some one still liviii£. Dr. Hall would not tell who the giver is. Included in the gift are thirty-six city lots between l!X)th and l--d sts., just off Riverside Drive. It is the intention of the dir*>< tors to utilize the gift as soon as may he for the nawfil «-f the seminary from the present cramped quar ters to the Riverside Drive Site induu.-d in the gift. Just what proportion of the gift remains after the deduction of the land value Dr. Ha, l would not say. He did. however, in his state ment Insist that there would have to be other gifts forthcoming to Insure the erection of tho necessary buildings and for endowments. No plans have yet been matured for the man ner of putting the gift to the most feasible use, but the matter will be tak»n In hand at once. Dr. Hall's statement, written by himself, for the directors follows: The Board of Directors of the Union Theologi cal Seminary met at the seminary. No. 7«n» Park-aye., on Wednesday. February 1. It was announced that a friend of the seminary had made a generous gift of a block of ground, and a sum of money amounting in the aggregate to ¥1.100.000. Appropriate action was taken by the board for the acceptance and acknowledgment of the gift. It is understood that thia gift, following: other gifts recently announced to the amount of nearly a quarter of a million dollars, enables the seminary to begin the carrying into effect of its plan of enlarging and enriching its facilities, as a school for the training of ministers to meet tho religious needs of modern life, and for the study of theology on university lines. The Ur.ion Theological Seminary offers equal rights and privileges to students of all denom inations. It is not under the ecclesiastical con trol of any denomination. It is wholly self-gov erning. Its constitution provides that Us di rectora must be numbers of the Presbyterian Church or of some other Evangelical church. The development of the larger plan of the Union Theological Seminary will involve Its ulti mate removal to a block of ground already ob tained, between 120 th and 122 d sts., near River side Drive, and will call for large additional gifts for buildings and endowments If the plan is to be fully realized. For many years the seminary has enjoyed th^ interchange of academic privileges with Colum bia University and New- York University. No change will be made in the present independ ent corporate life of the seminary, and its uni versity affiliations will be maintained as here tofore. PLANS FOR MOVING SEMINARY. Dr. Hall declared positively that he was not at liberty at the present time to disclose the name of the giver. "Although, so far as I know," said Dr. Hall. "th'-s is the largest gift ever made to any theo logical seminary, it is not yet advisable to say from whom the gift comes. It Is sufficient that the person who gave this great amount is still living. Plans have not been matured for the moving of the seminary to the new site. It was offered only last week, so there has not been time xo perfect anything in fre way of arrange ment*. However, the -matter will tw> taken in hand at once. "This is a big thing, and cannot be consid ered with anything like snap judgment. We have outgrown our present quarters. We have now 1-W students — a very large number for any such institution. We have been here in Park ave. since 18S<i, moving here from No. 9 Uni versity Place. "There is a narrow strip of ground fronting In Riverside Drive separating the land included in the gift from the Drive. One hundred-and twenty-flrst-st. has not yet been built through. We need more money for buildings and endow ments. Of course there was another bequest to the institution some time ago of more than $1*50,000. and some or this may be available for the purpose." rjifts of .5240-.000 to th* Union Theological Seminary were announced last November. Mrs. William Earl Dodge gave SI2CKOOO to establish S chair of applied Christianity, rind Morris K. Jesjjp gave a like amount to found a professor ship of prea< hing. Dr. Hall said last night that he regretted that he c*uld not give out the name of the giver. "Personally. I would like to tell the name of our geneious friend, and there Is no reason why I should not do so except the fact that he has requested me to keep it secret. He is a man who has been interested in the affairs of the seminary for some time, and all I can say is that I am overjoyed at the good fortune that has come to us. If the selection had been left to us we could not have chosen a site more de sirable or more v.iluablf for our purpose?. It Is situated one block north of Barnard College directly west of Teachers College, and verj near to Columbia University's extensive Itbrary. This will give our students great advantages. I have always believed that it was not desirable for theological students to be separated. Ir is extremely valuable to them to be surround/**! by the atmosphere of a university. Already wo hive a reciprocal arrangement with Columbia University whereby we exchange certain free courses. This arrangement w ill. of course. b« great ly facilitated by the fact that we shall now lie- nexr to Columbia. PRESENT BUILDING CROWDED. "Our present building is extremely valuable property, but on account of the crowded condi tion of property round about it does not admit of expansion. We have MB students in the sem inar}- to-day, and we already feel th? want of sufficient lecture halls. Horary and dormitory space. We have a valuable library, but It Is entirely theological, and in our new building we shall be next door to Columbia University*! valuable library, which will be accessible to our students. What I want particularly to empha size is the tori thai by the terms of the gift no change will .-• made In th? semi* try's corporate life." Dr. Hall said that things would go on slowly, thai no plans had been made yei. It would »>»• fit least four yens before any considerable head way was made on the builfllr.g. The Rev. Dr. Hastings, ex-president and pro fessor of pastoral theology, declined to «Vvr:!ge the name of the giver. "I ana under bonds not i" say," be declared "He hi an experienced giver and has asked that his name he withheld to thai he will not be plagued with hedging let tern. The gift will enable us to remove to an academic .••-■i-\ but not until we sell the present building. "It will mean; i ••. thai wo can make this a. real theological university for the firf-t tim-\ and give theological university lectures." While It is positively denied that Andrew f'arnetiie la the sjivtr. friends of tiv.? seminary havo expressed a hope that the Ironm r w,!!l ?iim»» ;ir ' ;«sslst the seminary** library. The Mock bounded by ISOtti and 122 d st=. Riverside Drive and Cterement-ave. — lil.M-rt. has not yet been laid out — is owned by various perrons ar.r! estates, tho largest owner being the O.
