terday * 0 *" Jack of evidence. The conspiracy
charge against the Smiths and Miss Xan Patter

tion eought to establish a motive for the murder
c « -Caesar" Young. Judge Foster in the indorse
ment on the indictment wrote:
The minutes of testimony herein before
t£ e grar>d jury discloss no evidence whatever
of conspiracy on the part of these defendants.
■ftje grand jury had no right to find an indict
njer.t when there was no evidence to support it.
The grand jury forgot both the laws and their
«udicsal position, and, feollng that the end justi
ce! the means, indicted the defendants, that
jiey might be brought here by extradition.
judge Foster granted permission to the Dis
trict Attorney to lesubsnit the evidence to the
grand Jury DOW in session. There is now a

of court. Counsel for the Bmltha will move for
the discharge of the defendants on the con-
Eilrtcy charge to-day if the District Attorney

Miss Patterson yesterday had only partly re
covered Imrn her collapse after the trial. She
fiect most of the lay in bed. During the day
she received much mail, most of it from cranks.
Her cour.f-1. Mr. Levy, received some tw*nj of
fers by *-" all and t^eeraph of bail for Miss Pat
terser.', rargirig from 000 to 150,000.
When Miss Patterson is finally admitted to
ball a friend of Daniel O'Reilly, a man well
Icnown along upper Broadway, will probably
go on her bond. He has told Mr. O'Reilly that
k» is willing to give any sum up to $50,000.
Tbe general opinion of those connected with
tt» rase la timt Miss Patterson will not be
.Va-.'tted to ball for a considerable time and
thai It win be fixed then at $20,000 or $25,000
At cxy rate It will be several days before ap
plication can be made by her counsel. Mr.
Jerome will not return from Albany until Mon
day and wi - J rot consider her case until then.
' according to present plans Miss Patterson

Violating Anti-Trust Law Charged
—H. W. Taft, Federal Counsel.
Tho federal grand jury, it was ascertalne-i
yesterday, has begun an investigation of the
American Tobacco Company, commonly known
as the Tobacco Trust, and a number of sub
sidiary companies. As tho Inquiry is under
the anti-trust law and is instigated by tho
Department of Justice, which has retained emi
nent special counsel as assistant United States
Attorney General, it promises to prove of Im
portance and to be far reaching in its results.
Two or three witnesses have been examined
every day. This was not known t«i any of Ul9
officials In tho Federal Building, and even the
Assistant United States District Attorneys who
were before the federal gTand jury were ig
norant of the proceedings. It was learned
th.it Henry W. Taft, brother of the Secretary
of War, had been appointed a Special Assistant
United States Attorney General to conduct the
Investigation and had as bis assistant Felix
H. Levy.
For the last few days the federal grand jury
haa been examining Edwin F. Hale, the eec
retory of the McAndrewa & Forbes Company,
one of the large subsidiary companies. Mr.
Hale, It was ascertained, had refused to an
swer a number of questions on the ground
that they would tend to incriminate him. and
others on the ground that the answers would
bo too voluminous to be produced at such short
notice. Consequently a presentment cf over
six typewritten pages was handed In to Judge
Larombe of the United States Circuit Court
late yesterday afternoon by the federal grand
Jury, and after argument the court directed
that Hale must answer the questions. The
presentment wUJ not be made public until
Hale's examination is ended. When the grand
jury filed in it was accompanied by Henry W.
Taft and Felix H. Levy. With them were also
John D. Llndsley, DeLancey Nkoll and a law
yer named aPrker. of the firm of Nlcoll, Ana
ble & Lindsay, who are counsel for Edwin F.
Hale was also brought in by United States
Marshal Henkel, who had been ordered to pro
duce him, but he was not under arrest. Fore
man Thomas M. Fo'.som then handed a present
ment to the Judge, which contained a list of
questions and answers which Mr. Taft informed
the court Mr. Hale had refused to answer after
appearing In obedience to a subpoena duees
tecum served by the grand Jury and executed by
Marshal Henkel.
"The witness is in court," said Mr. Taft, "and,
following euch procedure, Is willing to retire
wivh tho grand Jury and to answer such ques
tions as aro in the presentment. I would BUg
gest that such procedure be followed.''
Mr. Nlcoll. counsel for Mr. Hale, said that he
had no objection, and the court directed that the
questions be answered. The grand Jury, with
counsel and witness, then retired.
- The arguments disclosed that, acting as As
sistant United States Attorney General and as
sisted by Mr. Levy, Mr. Taft was also conduct
'ir.g an investigation of the American Tobacco
Company and. it Is said, a number of subsidiary
companies. It then leaked out that the head
officers of the subsidiary companies of Novr-
York and In the neighborhood have been ex
amlned Cor some days, only two or three wlt
:nesses being examined each day. Every effort
had been made to koop the inquiry a secret.
Mr. Taft declined to answer questions regard
ing the nature of the investigation beyond an-
Saoundns; it was under the anti-trust law. The
■ tment, he said, would not be made public
until after the examination of the recalcitrant
witness is ended.
Hale was first served with a subpoena on April
L's by a deputy United States marshal under
Marshal Henkel's orders. This subpeena called
for Hale's appearance before the grand Jury on
May 2, at 11 o'clock. On that day he "was re
subpoenaed by United States Marshal Henkel
personally, the subpoena being subpoena duces
tecuin. The United States marshal brought him
and the papers and books called by the subpoena
before the grand Jury.
Locked-In Men Refuse Help They

Because they were afraid to climb down a
ladder from the second story window of the
building at No. 73 Franklin-st., where they had

man, members of the finn of H. Gernshym fe
Brother, decided to remain in the building all

The policemen found the men hanging out of
the window, shouting for help. They told the

John Brown, Veteran, Dies After
Going Through Fhxjr.
John Brown, a veteran of the Civil War, sixty
old, who has been living at Sailor's Snug
Harbor, Staten Island, died last night in a cell
at the Oak-st. police station. It is supposed
death was due to alcoholism.
According to the police, Brown strolled un-

Entertained by Commissioner — Sons of Eli
Escort Settlement Girls.
Professor William Bailey Dnd his party of ten
"theolog's" and thirty academic students, who
ere making a study of social conditions in Man
hattan, yesterday afternoon visited Ellis Island.
Unfortunately the party, which was Increased by
twenty-four young women, who are members of
the sociology class at the University Settlement,
under the guidance of Dr. Hamilton, was unable
to see the Immigration station in full operation.
To make up fur the deficiency, the party was
entertained in the commissioner's office with
speeches and talk? on immigration.
After this they went on an inspection tour. In
every cape the University Settlement girls -were
escorted by the eons of Eli.
Further Testimony Heard by the
Senate Committee.
"vVashinetnn, ay s,— Professor Meyer, of the
University of Chicago, continued his statement
before the Pf.nnte Committee on Interstate
Commerce to-day. He criticised the Interstate
Commerce Commission, saying all its important
decisions were In the direction of restricting
trade and commerce. If it possessed the power
to fix rates it would be compelled to adopt a
mileage system.
Replying to Senator Newlands, Professor
Meyer said that stock watering had been ben
eficent in many cases. It enabled the tmilding
of roads, and many of the great interests of the
country had been started and built up by
watered Ft nek.
Chairman Elkins asked a number of questions
regarding German roads, and Professor Meyer
replied that Germany could not make preferen
tial rates, and the same thing would happen if
this government fixed ratesw Then nearer
points would have all the advantnees, and be
cause of high grain rates he thought the farms
of the Northwest would be destroyed. In
France, where there are private ownership to a
larff<* extent and government control of rates,
the government paid the roads largo sums of
Senator Cullom asked Professor Meyer regard
ing criticisms of tha Interstate Commerce Com
mission, and the latter said he thought the com
mission was a useful body and had done good
work. It ought not. however, he said, to have
the power of fixing rates, but within its present
limits it could accomplish all that Is necessary.
Answering Senator Foraker, Professor Meyer
said that in all foreign countries, whether the
government owned the roads or fixed the rates,
there were more complaints than In the United
George S. Gardner, of Laurel, Miss., a lum
ber manufacturer, complained about the ad
vance in lumber rates east of the Mississippi
River. He asserted that the advance was due
to a combination of roads. The commission
had made an order that the advanced rate was
unreasonable, and directed Us discontinuance^
The roads refused to comply with the order. He
wanted the commission authorized to fix rates
so that Its orders might be effective. Tho case
was brought before the commission in Febru
ary, 1904, but a decision was not rendered until
a year later, the delay being 1 due to the larga
amount of work before the commission. Ho as
serted that the roads west of the Mississippi
gave a "tap line" allowance, which amounted
to a rebate.
Prank H. Blodgett, of Janesrille, "VHs., en
gaged, In milling, protested against giving the
Interstate Commerce Commission power to fix
rates. He said the country mills, under present
conditions, did not have equal privileges with
the city mills, by reason of the milling in transit
regulations, which privileges, he feared, would
bo abolished if the commission had control of
John F. Harris, of Chicngo, Interested in ele
vators and the movement of pram for export,
said that no permanent differentials could be
established, as conditions are constantly chang
ing. He was opposed to giving power to the
commission to fix rates, because rates some
times must be changed quickly or business
would stagnate.
W. B. Blddle, third vice-president and traf
flo manager of the Chicago, Rock Island and
Pacific Railroad, replied to complaints made to
the Interstate Commerce Commission by cattle
raisers against the rates of the Santa Fe Rail
road, of which he waa formerly traffic man
ager. It was charged that tlT* rates on cattle
had been advanced since IS9B by a conspiracy
of the, carriers, as a result of which, competi
tion had been eliminated and uijust rates pre
vailed. The witness said the carriers never had
been fairly compensated for carrying cattlo and
that this sort of traffic had not borne Its fair
share of the cost of transportation. He assert
ed that cattle rates are not too hi^h. and most
of them are below the actual cost of service.
Thft railroads, he paid, never had had a chance
to get fair rates for carrying cattle, if for no
other reason than because they had to contend
with the "drive," which was their sharpest
competitor. Cattle are always able to walk,
and when grass and water are plenty the rail
road cannot compete with this method of trans
portation. He called attention to the fact that
stock reaulres tho fastest time of any class of
traffic, and that sven perishable freight trains
and passenger trains have to be sidetracked
to expedite the stock service.
Mr. Biddle said that cattle rates are reason
able In themselves and by comparison with
other rates; that then- Is no combination or
conspiracy on the part of\the roads in conflict
with the law in the adjustment of these rates:
that competition is Still a controlling force and
that a reasonable service Is now being given by
the roads for this business. It was necessary
for managers to confer regarding rates, but
6uch conferences did not mean a combination or
The committee adjourned until to-morrow.

Action to Prevent Interborough
Crossing Washington Bridge.
Bridge Commissioner Best and the Commis
sioner of Public Works of the Borough of The
Bronx have been served with a summons in a
taxpayers 1 suit, instigated, It is said, by the
Union Railway interests, aiming to prevent the
city officials from granting any permits for the
occupancy of streets In The Bronx covered by
the franchise of the New-York City Interbor
ough Railway Company, a Belmont corporation.
It Is understood that an injunction proceeding
will be brought by the Metropolitan interests
in order to prevent the newer company from
laying tracks across the Washington Bridge.
The New-York City Interborough Company
obtained a franchise three years ago for about
forty-three miles of streets in The Bronx. Ail
it lacked In order to go ahead with the work of
laying rails was permission from the State
Railroad Commission. After a long fight in the
courts It practically won its case. The Metro
politan-Union Interests naturally are hostile to
the. Interborough. and it is assumed that the
taxpayers' action is Inspired by them. Bridge
Commissioner Best turned the summons over to
the Corporation Counsel's office.
Negotiations are pending, it was admitted yes
terday In authoritative quarters, which are expect
ed to result In the near future in the merger of the
Detroit Southern Railroad, which was bid in on
Monday by the bondholders' committee, and the
Ann Arbor Railroad, which was purchased re
cently from the Gould interests by the banking
firm of Rudolph Kleybolta & Co. The consolidated
system will probably be known as the Ann Arbor

board on construction Is hard at work en the plans
for the 1906 battleships, those authorised by tne
late session of Congress. Several tentative designs
have been submitted from various sources, incor
porating ideas of certain experts. There Is noth
ing radical in the designs themselves as so far de
veloped. in the machinery the new battleships will
practically be duplicates of those now under con
struction. There may be some changes in minor
details, as is the case on all vessels. There will
be no Important change, such as that represented
in the motive power of the turbine driven scouts.
The principal change in the new battleships will be
in the armament, It remains to be decided, how
ever, whether the latest plan of using only the
heaviest guns and abandoning the medium calibre
ordnance- will be adopted by the brard. It is some
what a question of construction. The use of 12-inch
guns exclusively, instead of anything between that
calibre and the lightest type of secondary battery,
naturally involves questions in a structural way.

paymaster who has been paying Major Frank De
U Carrington of tha infantry arm since his arrest
by civilian authorities in Manila and trial on the
charge of embezzlement, will los« the meney.
It has been decided by tho Treasury Department
officials that Carrington must be regarded as off
the. army payroll from the day when he was turned
over to the civil authorities for trial. It has been
supposed that he was still In the army until he was
dismissed; and since his trial by civil authorities, by
which he was Fentencrd to a t«rrn of Imprisonment
more than eqcal to the remainder of his natural
life, Major Carrington has be«»n ordered bef-ire a
military court. The complication in the case is that
he is blocking promotion In his arm of the service.
Under the decision of the Treasury Department
Carrington was not entitled to pay from the tlm«

standing the fact that since then he haa been de
fending himself In a trial by court martial. In which
attitude it has been considered hitherto that an
army offloer was on duty.
FERMITS TO GO ABROAD.— lJeutenant "William
H. Monroe, of tho 66th Company of Coast Artil
lery, on duty at Fort "Wadsworth, New-York, re
cently asked authority to visit Bermuda and the
West Indies. It has been held by the War De
partment that as Canada and Mexico are not "be
yond the eoas," it is not necessary for officers to
obtain permission from the department to visit
those countries. It is a.so held that officers may
visit Porto Rico and Hawaii without permission
from the department, as tho«e Islands are part of
the United States; but when an officer desires to
visit any foreign country and the Journey thereto
Involves travel by sea, the offloer should flist ob
tain tho permission of tho War Department, as
contemplated by the regulations.

Alfred C. Owen, a graduate of Annapolis, who left
the naval service In 1908, was found guilty in tha
Court of Special Sessions yesterday of defrauding
the Hotel Buckingham out of $35, the amount of his
bill there. Upon his statement that his relatives
would settle it if communicated with, the Justices
remanded him until Monday, and placed his case in
the hands of a probation officer for investigation.

One Candidate Says Choice Broke
the State Machine.
Hartford, Conn.. May s.— The choice early to
day of Congressman Frank B. Brandegee, of
New-London, representing tho 3d Connecticut
District, to be the Republican candidate for
United States Senator to succeed the lata
Orvllla 11. Platt came at the end of a continu
ous series of balloting in a session which lasted
exactly twelve hours, and was at once made
State Senator Paige, of Bridgeport, who waa
himself a candidate in the caucus, said to-day:
"You may put it down that the greatest feature
of the caucus, apart from recognising tho un
deniable ability and the deserts of Congressman
Brandegee. Is that It has smashed the machine
that has "hogged It' over this State for many
years. There will be another machine, but It
will not 'hog' things as its precedeßsor has done.
It will give a fair division of the offices accord
ing to locality."
Asked If the headquarters of the new machine,
would be in Bridgeport, the reply of Mr. Paige
was, "We'll be there."
Congressman Frank B. Brandegee was born In
New-London, July S. 1564. He was educated at
Yale and admitted to the bar In IMS, and the
same year represented his native town In th**
legislature. The year following he was elected
Corporation Counsel of New-Lonc;on. and held
the place for several terms. He wan in the leg
islature again in 1599. and was chosen Speaker
of the House. In 1903 ha was elected to Con-
Kresa to fill the unexplred term of Congress

elected for the full term in 1904. lie Is a mem
