April 3.— "1 don't exactly say that I ne .-d a rest, but lam going to take one hi the open, under God's blue heaven," paid President Roosevelt to-day, standing on the platform of his special car in th« Pennsyl vfcJll . station and talking with Representative olm5! District Attorney McCarrell and Mar shal Leonard, in the presence of a great crowd t>ial had gathered at the station ta meet him. ■ It was suggested to the President that things would en along- smoothly, even in his absence. "Oh. things will be all right." h<? said. "I have left Taft sitting on the lid keeping down the ganto Dominga matter." » Later he said: "I n goin? to have an out- Ing.

He stood on the rear platform, waving his hand and beamir* with good nature. "When the train stopped the President stepped from the rim form with the remark to a Secret Service officer: "Pass right along now, and If this crowd isnt too big I'll shake with all of you." At this there was a rush to shake hands with fclni. When some little girls were handed up to him he said: . "God bten the children." and then, turning to Mr. Oln =:ed. he said: "You know I believe in these chi "ren." To en i 'd Hsr with a button in his coat the President said: "How are you. comrade?' As the train moved off. at 1:07, a man pro posed three cheers for "Teddy," which were g:v.' with a v. ;!!, and the President laughed heartily.

April 3.— President Roosevelt and 1:1s party started for the Southwest at 9:05 o'clock this morning, just five minutes behind the tlrrie scheduled for his departure. The delay xves caused by one of the horses attached to the President's lor.dau falling on the slippery asphalt pavement in front of the Treasury Balliinr on the way to the station. Xo one was hurt, and th* horse was : tangled from the harness without injury. beers and good wishes resounded through the station as th" President ceparted.

As General Joseph Wheeler pressed for trurd through the throng- to reach the Presi aaafs hand, he was roughly thrust back by a policeman.

NEW CANAL BOARD NAMED THE WORK TO BE PUSHED. Complete Reorganization of Panama Commission Effected. (FROM TTIK TRHifNE BCBBAC] Washington, April 3.— President Roosevelt's order appointing the new Panama Canal Com mission, signed Saturday, was issued this morn ing Just as he was departing for the Southwest, and, following his injunction to "go ahead and get bu3y with the digping," the five members now In the city promptly took the oath of of fice and devoted the whole day to an executive session in the office of the former commission. Four of them were already familiar with the work in hand, and the fifth, the n«v chairman, T. P. ShontF. took hold of the gigantic enter prise with that characteristic push which caused the President to select him for the place. Judge Magoor. has been th- 3 lepal counsel of the expiring commission, has twice visited the isth mus, and knows everything that has been done and just what questions require first attention. Mr. Harrod, the only reappolnted member of the preceding commission, i.^ j- rfe< tly at home on all matters pressing for consideration. Gen eral Hams and Colonel Ernst were members of the original Isthmian Canal Commission from 1599 to IWI, which made the choice between Panama and Nicaragua, and' J thcir interest in the great waterway has never flagged. General Halns only a few months ago, with the latest official data in his possession, publicly opposed a sea level canal and advocated locks, in order to insure the earliest possible opening 1 of the canal to traffic. Admiral Er.dlcott, the chief of the Bureau of Yards and Docka of th*» navy. Is an expert on locks and dams, was a member of the Nicaragua Commission of IWtr>, and has been frequently called into consultation by the commission in the last year. The executive com mittee of the commission will meet on the isth mus not later than May 10, and from that time on. It Is predicted, "dirt will fly." Finding that the law obliged him to appoint seven commissioners, the President did so, but he carried out his own plan by making three of them practically the commission. Th« other four, altnough bearing the title of commission ers, not only receive a much lower compensa tion, but are assigned to much smaller fields o' activity. The President also has carried out his scheme of dividing up the work of canal build ing among the commissioners, so tha f , nominally acting as a body, on stated occasions each in dividual member would operate lit a special field. The head of the commission is a trained railroad man. the new Governor of the zone is a lawyer, who also has had to do with state affairs, and the engineer commissioner already Is known for his abilities in th<^ execution of the practical work of canal cutting. The other members are placed to comply with the law as to the number of commissioners, but arr- m^n of high ability as hydraulic engineers. Secretary Taft told them tn-day ihat they were expected to show resjlts, ar.<? that is the keynote for the President's action. atKMBERB OF THE COMMISSION.

GOVERNOR ANNOUNCES IT AFTER CONFERENCE WITH HENDRICKS. Tarbell Selh Future Commissions for $135,000 — Controversy at White Heat — Alexander, Harriman, Platt and Crimmins Statements. CLIMAX OF THE EQUITABLE TANGLE. Governor Higgins and Francis Hendricks, State Superintendent of Insurance, an nounced at Albany that an investigation of the affairs of the Equitable Life Assurance Society had been begun. Gage E. Tarbell received $135,000 from the society in lieu of all future commis sions he might receive on policies. President Alexander reaffirmed his charges against Vice-President Hyde, declaring that he had usurped the president's authority and acted without his knowledge. E. H. Harriman asserted that neither he nor any of the railroads in which he was interested had ever sold a bond to the Equitable. John D. Crimmins denied that the City Trust Company had received any money on deposit from the Equitable. A resolution was introduced in the Senate for a legislative investigation of the Equitable. IBT TXLEOFArH TO THE T»IBr!CX. ] Albany. April 3— The affairs of the Equitable Lif* Assurance Society were discussed this af ternoon by Governor Higglns and Francis Hen drkks. State Superintendent of Insurance, and at ihe close of the conference the Governor an nounced that the Insurance Department would undertake an investigation of the present situa tion and of the society's affairs generally. •'Both President Alexander and Vice-President Hyde," said the Governor, "have asked Superin tendent Hendricks to make this Investigation. I have known Superintendent Hendricks long and well enough to know that he is thoroughly com petent for the task, and everybody can rest as sured that the examination will be honest and proper." The Governor was then asked whether this announcement set at rest the report of a proba ble legislative investigation into the condition of the Equitable. He replied that there was no desire or intention to place the case in the hands Of the legislature. "The Insurance Department." said the Gov ernor, "is more competent and better equipped. It . ould do the work in a shorter time, and do it better. The entire insurance world, as well as the mass of the people, will be satisfied with the result." Superintendent Hendricks said that the in vestigation had bepun to-day in New-York City. and would include the examination of the com pany's books and papers and the examination of its officers, directors and pollcyholders by repre sentatives of the department. As to the further nature of its scope he would not say. Isaac Van derpoot chief department examiner, would be in charge, with as many assistants as he required. The Superintendent said that the letter from President Alexander requesting the investiga tion was dated in February. He declined to make its contents public. Mr. Hyde's request, he said, was embodied in his statement pub lished in the Su>^ay papers. Aa the res*<t of an agreement reached at the confer#nce in New-York on Saturday by Super intendent Hendricks and representatives of ihe warring factions of the Equitable, the hearing scheduled for to-morr >w before the Superintend ent here will not be held. A legislative investigation of the affairs of the Equitable Life Assurance Society is pro posed by a resolution Introduced to-night by Senator Bracken, who is attorney In two policy holders' suits recently brought against that company and author of the bill to give policy holders hetter opportunity to obtain an ac counting, nwing to the opposition of Senator Grady. unanimous consent was lacking, and the resolution could not be received. It will be for mally introduced later, however, and be referred to the Finance Committee. In offering the measure Senator Braekett said that the method of investigation he preferred was that by the Attorney General. Investiga tion by the Superintendent of Insurance, he said lacked sufficient publicity. He introduced this measure, however, so as to have a ♦hird weapon In readiness In case nothing satisfactory came of the efforts of the pollcyholders to ob tain their end through the Attorney General and the Insurance Department.

Accuses President Alexander to His Face of Bad Faith. The investigation announced as begun in the foregoing dispatch is in accordance with a re quest received from President Alexander of the Equitable more than a month ago. according to to a statement issued from the office of Super intendent Hendricks here. The Investigation will include examination of olncers of the so ciety as well as an inspection of the account, and an auditing of the expenditures. It will probably disclose officially what was learned yesterday, that Gage E. Tarbell, second vice-president of the society, and head of its agencies, on the day he entered the fight to oust Mr. Hyde, sold out all his commissions on future* policies for $135,0001 This transaction, an agreement between Mr. Tarbell and President Alexander, was never passed on by the execu tive committee or any other official body of tho society. Conferemri followed conference on both sides yesterday. The situation is now practically where it was before any mutuallzation plans had been agreed on. President Alexander and his adherents are working tooth and nail to oust Mr. Hyde. He is beginning a desperate fight not only to retain his place in the society, but to clear himself of the charges brought against his business career and his personal character. Before the entire executive committee, at a meeting yesterday called by him, Mr. Hyde charged Mr. Alexander with bad faith and de manded an answer as to what he Intended to do about the "interests of the policyholders," whose guardian he had announced he was. "You consented to one mutuallzation plan." said Mr. Hyde to him. "There came a hitch about that, and the policyholders* committee de manded a speedier mutuallzation. I consented to that, and made other concessions. Now you refuse to assent to them. What are you going: to do about mutuallzatlon? What answer are you going to make to the Crlmmins committee?" Mr. Alexander returned no answer. After a conference with his lawyers lasting several hours and after several hours more of revision he gave out a signed statement asserting that Mr. Hyde had usurped his power and acted in Cont'nut-d on »rcond page. 7 o'clock Manager Stewart said that all the scenery had been made ' fireproof. About the same time Inspector Walsh. Captain Shire, of the East 3.*>th-st. station, and a few men ar rived. The inspector said that he had been sent by Police Commissioner McAdoo to see that no performance was gii«»n. The manager explained that everything required had been done, but Walsh said that the theatre could not be opened until an order had been received from the Build ings Department. An effort was made to find Commissioner Hopper, but It failed.

Benton. 111., April 3.— Soire fifty miners were entombed to-day in Joseph Letter's mine at Zeigler by a terrific explosion of gas, and it is probable that thirtj-q of the buried men are dead. Thus far four bodies have been found. The explosion, it Is said, was due to the fact that the Letter mines are not worked on Sunday, thus allowing gas to accumulate in the lower workings. When between thirty-five and forty-five min ers had descended into the mine to-day to re sume work, a terrific explosion blew the works at the mouth of the mine high into the air. One of th* steel cages was blown to the surface from the bottom of a s«iO foot shaft. The shock of the explosion was felt at Benton. twelve miles northeast of Zeigler. A teamster driving along a road half a mile from the mine was covered with falling cinders, and debris covered the floor of his wagon half an inch deep. One miner was killed and four were severely injured at the mouth of the shaft in which the explosion occurred. The work of rescue was begun at once by miners, who were arriving when the explosion took place. But the main shaft was demolished so that rescue work has to be carried on through the alrshaft. This has hindered the work of aiding the en tombed men to such an extent that when dark ness fell to-night only three bodies and one In jured man had been brought to the surface. These bodies were found forty feet from the bottom of the air shaft, and this is as far aa the rescuers have been able to penetrate. A committee of union miners from Duquoin and other neighboring mining towns, headed by Diatrlct President Morris, hastened to Zeigler soon after the explosion occurred and offered their aid. The bodies of the dead are so black ened that tiiey cannot at once be identified. The Injured miner brought out of the shaft, it is said, cannot live. C. E. Chllders, a striking Zeigler miner, last October predicted in a printed article that an explosion was likely to occur on account of what he termed improper ventilation of the shafts. There was much excitement among miners when. the accident became known because there had been a strike of long duration and many conflicts had occurred between strikers and non union miners. An all day investigation tends to show that the catastrophe was due to the accidental explo sion of accumulated gas. ■ ■ MIXER SUES PEA BODY. Union President Asks Total of $300JDOO Damages. Denver.

The complaint states that the plaintiff was subjected to hardships, humiliations and dis grace by the defendants without probable cause and also without legal process. Confinement as military prisoner, it is alleged, greatly impaired the plaintiff's health, by reason of the unhealth fulness of the jail. Th- complaint asserts that the defendants were guilty of malice and that they should be imprisoned according to law. Damages of $100.- IM) are demanded from each of the defendants. GREENE TO SELL HOUSE. The General Will Make Buffalo His Permanent Home. IBT TEI.ISirtAPH TO THI TMBirXZ.I Buffalo, April 3. — General Francis V. Greene said to-night that Buffalo was to be his perma nent place of residence hereafter, and that he had reached this decision about a year ago. At about the same time he gave instructions to his agent in New-York to sell his New-York house, and that place has been on the market since then. It was just about a >>ar that General Greene bought th- Jewett mansion, at No. 303 North st.. this city. It is understood that he paid about :?4f>.»'«i<> or jWMWP for the place, and the real estate men in Buffalo say that the place is worth between three and four times that amount. General Greene bought it at a fore closure sale. The Jewett house was built by Josteh Jewett. and it cost $11.1)00 to finish one room in the housr. Just about thf time that General Greene bought the house the announcement was made th it he had been appointed general manager of th*> Ontario Power Company. Ha definite an nouncement was made at the time, however, that he would keep the place permanently. The announcement, therefore, that General Greene intends to live in Buffalo hereafter, undoubted ly means that he Is going to stay with the On tario Power Company. TO BRING OVEB POCAHOHTAS'S BODY.

BOTH JAMMED THROUGH.- Strict Party Votes— Elsberg rigor ously Attacks Measures. r BT TEUEORAPH TO THK TRIBi;XB.I Albany. April 3.— To avoid the pressure ItflnS exertod on the party l-»ders by the opponents of the pending stock and mort^a^e tax bills they wfre both jammed through th.- Senate to night by a strict party vote and in the face of the most sensational opposition of thr» New- York City members, culminating in the declaration by Senator Elsborg that all hope of carrying New- York City this fall in the Mayoralty election was ]>ein^ deliberately sajrrMrwt The meas» ures wer^ passe.l by a stri.-t party vote of ■ to 14. Senators Mall>y, Burr and Stevens hem? absent. The decision to put the measures through to night was reached as soon as it becaaas known that as a result of a meeting of the Republican Executive Committee of KlHji County the Re publican legislators to-morrow would ask <;<>v ernor Hi^ins to intervene and prevent tlie passage of both measures, but particularly th© mortgage tax. Faced with this sudden and unexpected situa tion and bound by caucus agreement, the Re publican Senators from New- York, headed by Senator Elsberg, attacked the measures with a bitterness that exceeded that of the Democrats, but in the end remained true to their party caucus. The speech of Senator Elsberg was on© of the most startling declarations heard in tha Senate this year. Rising in his place after Sen ators Grady and Raines had exhausted the par tisan phases of the proposed legislation, and ; Senators WUte and Lewis had urged the I passage of the bills. Senator Elsberg said: I suppose I shall vote for the passage of these bills, because I am bound by my caucus agree ment, from which I shall not seek to escape But I cannot help rising in my place here to declare my regrret. my grave regret, that the Republican party has entered into this policy and will insist on enacting thts legislation in defiance of the strong sentiment that has de veloped In the community I represent against them. What you do Is to take a class of citizens in New- York and single them out. Where do you find that class elsewhere? The business you propose to tax Is located in New- York City, and If it were not you would not want to tax It. The growing tendency under the Indirect sys tem is to get a larger share of taxation thaa is fair from the city of New-York. Now I don't want to put the Republican party in th« hole. lam discussing a party programme, but It seems to me this ought to be called a bill to put the last remaining Republican fragment in -New-York out of business. When this legisla ture assembled there waa a time when it looked as if we could elect a Republican— or at leaat an anti-Tammany mayor. But the Republicans in this body seem to be trying to do everything possible to make this Impossible. *""««■ "PEOPLE MAKE THEIR OWN ISSUES." **Why don't you make an issue on anti-Tara many and anti-Wall Street and win?" Inter rupted Senator White. "If you will make that issue you will sweep the city.** Senator Elsberg replied as follows: Let me tell the Senator that in the constitu ency I represent the people make their own is sues: they don't submit to having them mad» for them by rural legislators. If you want ti> enact legislation so that there will be no Repub lican party left in the city, if It will simply be a case of all people standing together against the aggressions from the other parts of th& State, all you have got to do is to continue tha way you are going. Where is this indirect policy leading us? Tha State is growing, and it ia continually necessary for us to get more revenue. The bills you now pass may last two years; then you will becomo dissatisfied again and so hunting for more reve nue—and the programme will be to get soms other class in the city. This is not wise politics that you are playing, for it is not correct policy. You car keep on v. ith this policy until you maka it possible, as it wa once before, that there shall be not a single Republican in this body to represent the great city ol New-York: but as j long aa I hold my .-eat in this body, you shall ! not do this without my sounding the note of | warning. I've got. to vote for these bills— l'm ' bound by caucus; but I want to say that if there ! was one-half the opposition to them in up-Stat» | regions you would hay - recacensed long ago and uncaucused. Senator Raines broke in. and, after some words, declared suddenly: "Do you not concede that tbe question is not how the money is raised, but how it Is spent?" To this Senator Elsberg replied: I do not. and I am surprised to r>e;»r the Sen ator say that. There is a well defined sentiment in New- York City that, while he says this bill — I mean the mortgage tax— will lift the burden from homes in the State, that in reality it will lay a great burden on the homes of poor people. greater than can be measured' by any save on-* coming from that city. You are making a mis j take the consequence of which you will later regret by the passage of these bills. You ar-» offending not merely the Democratic or tha Republican part of the city, hut a great ma jority of Iks sentiment of the \vr;r>lr> city. Senator Piis»». of New-York Tity. followed with a similar statement that he wa< Toting for th*» measure because he was hound by the cau cus role, and declared, further, that he voted unwillingly and reluctantly. Senator Saxe, of New- York, followed with the startling declaration that the measures, so far as Ihe Republican Senators from New- York City were concerned, ousht to be «l»->cri;>e»l as bills "makiujf them commit hari kari. a term which I explaiu as meaning distMnlHiwlmgr themselves at the command of the Emperor." But Senators Sax*. Page ami Elsberg voted for the bills. SEVERAL HOURS OF DELIBERATION. Prior to this thfre were several h'«ur<» of d«» liberation, in which Senator Raines dominated, the supporters of the r>ill and Senator Grady the opposition. Senator .Marks offered an amendment, providing for a tax of $3 on each telephone receiver and r»0 c»'iits on each gas meter. He raised a laugh by leclnrinjc the bills were merely attempts to "yank the leg of New- York City." The amendments were lost. Senator Hinman declared that he was glad tt> vote for any bill "yankine the leg of \e\v York lity. sinre tlie .ity had recently yanked the leg of the State to pay for the $101,000,000 bars© cnnal." Then the bill went through by a Tote of 33 to 14. and the mortgage tax bill was called up. The debate on this was brief, as the hour was late. Senator Cassidy offered an amendment ex empting building and loan associations, a sugges tion that has found favor recently, but It was defeated. Senator Tully heinsr the only otaer Re publican supporting it. The vote on the amend ment was 35 to 16. The same v-n t was recorded on this measure ns on the stoct tax. the 33 Re publicans present voting for it and the 14 Dem ocrats against It. •This will be out answer to the protests of New- York City." said a Republican leader Just before the bills came np. Ir was generally in terpreted as a definite attempt to stop the press ure tbat was put on members, and particularly on New-York City Senators over Sunday, to oppose the bills, a position they could not take* because of caucus agreement No warning was dropped of the plan, and the scheme worked per fectly. Even the Democrats were taken off their guard, and started to oppose the measure* in « perfunctory fashion. The real sensatlou WHEN YOU ARE SICK USE Dewey'a Port Wine an.! Crap* Juice.
