TWO KILLED IN SUBWAY.
OXE MAN A SUICIDE.
Another Crushed to Death by Fall
of Heavy Piping?
Theodore Pagre, of No. 65 Mercer-si, Jersey
City, was struck by a southbound express
train in the subway at 18th-st., yester?
day, and instantly killed. From the testimony
of the motorman of the express, who was placed
under arrest, it is believed that Page committed
suicide. The motorman said that just after he
passed the station he saw a man step out from
behind a pillar close to the train and throw him?
self on the rails. The shock broke one of the
air pipes, setting the brakes and halting the
An investigation was immediately started by
the police to learn what the man was doing on
the tracks and how he got there. Employes at
the 18th-st. station were unable to throw any
light on the mystery. None of the ticket sellers
or ticket choppers had seen a man get down
from the platform to the tracks.
It was first believed that the man had fallen
from the rear of a southbound express train and
had been struck by another express before he
could reach a station. This idea was scouted
by the Interborough officials, who claimed this
could not have happened, as the guards would
not permit passengers to ride on the rear plat?

Page, a roofer, of No. 174% Tork-st., Jersey
City, who is unable to account for the presence
of his brother in the subway.
One man was killed and another had a nar?
row scape last night in the subway under the
Harlem River by the toppling over of a huge
spool of cable piping. Two of these spools,
weighing 3,160 pounds each, were being hauled
on fiat cars to the Bronx. On one of the cars
sat Frederick Draper, of No. 319 West 21st-st.,

MAY DISMISS WALLACE.
THE PRESIDENT ANNOYED
Resignation of Canal Chief Engineer
Not Yet Accepted.
GG??? ??? TRIBUXE BfREACl
Washington. June 27.?The course of Chief
Engineer Wallace of the Panama Canal Com?
mission, who has resigned as chief engineer and
member of the commission, to accept a $60.000
office from a New-York corporation, has caused
the gravest annoyance to the President and
Secretary Taft, and it has been intimated that
there has been some discussion of the advisabili?
ty of refusing to accept Mr. Wallace's resig?
nation and of striking his name from the roll
of the commission. The resignation of the chief
engineer has not yet been accepted.
The feeling is strong in administration circles
that Mr. Wallace, notwithstanding the fact that
he was under no contract for a stipulated time,
was under an implied obligation to remain with
the government and in charge of the work he
had undertaken to supervise for at least a rea?
sonable period. He had been consulted at every
step, and every change which could in any way
facilitate his work had been made. The ut?
most respect had been paid to his views, and
there was no possible ground for dissatisfaction
on his part.
The understanding of the situation which pre?
vails in Washington is that the chief engineer
gives no reason for his refilgnatlon except that
an offer more tempting from a financial point of
view has been made to him by a corporation in
this country. For him to permit a merely pe?
cuniary reason to induce him to desert the gov?
ernment at a critical time in the progress of the
great work which had been confided to Ms care
ia regarded by some officials as disloyal in the
extreme, not only to the government but to the
administration which has done so much for him
It is appreciated, of course, that an offer of
$60,000 a year must be a strong inducement to a
man whose present salary is only $25,000 a year,
with a furnished house thrown in; but that Mr.
Wallace should have permitted even so powerful
an Inducement to tempt him to adopt his present
course is regarded with grave disapproval, it is
said, by Secretary Taft and doubtless by the
It has been reported that the interview be?
tween Secretary Taft and Chief Engineer Wal?
lace In New-York last Sunday morning was a
stormy one, and the contrary is not intimated in
Washington. It is well appreciated that Secre?
tary Taft is a man of exceptionally even temper,
and that it takes a great deal to ruffle it, but it
is also appreciated that he abhors anything
savoring of disloyalty, and It is said that he ex?
pressed his views to Mr. Wallace in terms more
frank than welcome.
THE CANAL? COMMISSION'S WORK.
Various reports which have gained circulation,
presumably through sources friendly to Mr.
Wallace, have also contributed to the tension of
the situation. It ie denied that the commission
Is dilatory in the methods it takes to procure
needed supplies, that Mr. Wallace was compelled
to secure the approval of numerous subordinates
for every purchase he thought best to make, and
that other obstacles of lil.e character were
thrown in his way. Since the commission was
reorganized, on April 3, its methods are declared
to have been businesslike and expeditious.
Everything that the chief engineer ordered has
been purchased with celerity and promptly for?
warded to the isthmus. In fact, so great has
been the expedition with which supplies have
been sent forward that the officials in the canal
zone have been compelled to cry for quarter, be?
cause of the limited d >ck facilities at Colon
made it impossible for them to care for ship?
ments as fast as they were received. Extra ves?
sels have been chartered and everything possible
has been done to promote the work on the isth?
A striking instance of the expedition with
which orders have been executed is reported in
the case of a large requisition for sanitary sup?
plies of all kinds which was recently received
from Governor Magoon. Exactly ten days from
the date on which the cabled order was received
in Washington the supplies were landed on the
dock at Colon. Mr. Wallace was empowered,
whenever the occasion demanded an emergency
purchase, to make it with the signature of only
a single subordinate, and in no instance since
the commission has been fairly reorganized has
any unreasonable delay attended the filling of
orders. That the chief engineer can have been
moved to resign by any fear for his reputation
because of the failure of his associates to co?
operate with him is therefore said to be out of
Mr. Wallace gave no Intimation of his inten?
tion to retire to Chairman Shonts or Secretary
Taft until he landed in New-York. His cable
dispatch to Secretary Taft merely said that he
was compelled to come to the United States on
urgent personal business, and the first news

Yale "Grads," Strikingly Cost um eu.
Hold High Festival.
[BT TELEGRAPH TO THE ????G??.1
New-Haven, June 27.?Out of the spectacular
confusion or reunion classes at Yale's com?
mencement this morning a semblance of order
emerged at noon, when more than four thousand
old and young Yale "grads" formed in a gay
and brilliant procession behind their bands and
drum corps and marched to Yale Field to "root"
for Yale in the Yale-Harvard baseball game.
Cool June weather, with stirring breezes, made
the day comfortable for the great majority of
guests at Yale, but rather windy for the younger
reunion classes, who came to town in v. hite
?uck suits, kimonos and Highland rigs with
bared knees. All this morning the streets wore
crowded with singing classes, blaring bands and
reverberating drum corps, while the sidewalks,
campuses and hotels were filled with streams of
women in white summer costumes, seniors in
flowing black robes and mortarboard hats and
young alumni in their reunion "Jeans." By 1
o'clock Chapel-st. was a mass of gayly decked
humanity, on march to Yale Field, and after
the game for hours the process-on of dancing
classes, Japanese parasols aloft, zigzagged back
to the campus. From then on bands played,
? classes marched back and forth to their banquet '
halls, honrres lighted up the venerable campus j
and New-Haven was again at the top notch of j
the reunion celebrations. While yesterday was
senior class day. to-day was alumni day, and j
New-Haven and staid old Yale were not allowed i
to forget it. Few years have seen such an out?
pouring of Yale men to a Yale commencement,
and no recent years have seen such a gay med- !
ley of color and spectacular uniforms.
If the triennial class of '0? made the bravest '
Show to-day with their "kilties" and bared ?
knees, some of the other classes were not far i
behind them. The " '02's" wore their High- ,
land costume with a wide sash from shouldei- j
to watet, and a feathered Scotch cap that was
most damaging to the -susceptibilities of the I
young women of the town. To-day this clas?, j
to the number of 200, foend that the tailor !
who had designed their costume had forgotten j
the important feature in male attire?a pocket. !
The class, therefore, made a concerted "rush" !
on one of the big department stores, and before ;
the astonished salesgirls knew exactly what :
rad happened the young alumni had taken ail
the chatelaine bags bo sight. With these bags. :
of all sizes, shapes and decorations, hanging
from the?r waists, and immediately filled with
matches, tobacco and pipes. '02 started out
again, ready for the fun. Now and then a "02
man would absentmindedly try to strike a
match on his bare leg. on which occasions 'his
classmates immediately put out the "fire."
The class of '90 had high white hats and white
duck suits, and looked especially "natty." The
cias? of '??0. back for sexennial, wore blue and
white coats and duck trousers. The class of
'05 were In startlingly feminin?? clothes of the
kimono cut, of vivid blue, with magnificent Jap?
anese basket hats. An excited member of '(??
bi a straw basket hat ran out of the New
Haven house this noon with a worried face. A
classmate asked him what the trouble was.
"It's old Bates, of our class," said the first
"I don't know. But he's in there with a doc?
"What's the matter with him?" This time a
crowd ask"d the question.
"He's having hto"*imono cut out," said the

could use their parasols on him.

flfth anniversary of the graduation of their
class from Harvard to-day. President Roof ???'
returned to his alma mater, not as the Chief
Magistrate of the nation, but as a private citi?
zen, and a loyal Harvard alumnus. Although
the ancient university of Harvard would hav?
been glad to pay him all the honor due his posi?
tion, it was the President's own request that he
be regarded merely as a member of the class of
?so. rather than as the President of the United
Stares. Nevertheless, students, alumni and the,
citisene of Cambridge united in giving him a
hearty greeting as h?? drove through the street*
of the university city.
The President's day was a busy one. Arriv?

was driven to the Cambridge residence of the
Right Rev. William Lawrence. Episcopal Bishop
of Massachusetts, where he is being entertained
during his sojourn here. The Bishop is presi?
dent, of the Harvard Alumni Association.
Breakfast was served at the Bishop's home, and
among those present, hi addition to the Presi?

During the forenoon rr.^siJent Roosevelt vis?

President's first wife.
The President was then driven to the Oakley
Country Club, in Watertown. where the ? las*
of 'SO held an informal reunion, and luncheon
was served. A photograph of the class was

Hotel Somerset, in Boston, for the banquet of

the party returned to Cambridge.
As on his visit to Massachusetts last week,
rain marred the President's programme. As the
President's carriage was driven out of Bishon
Lawrence's yard this forenoon, on the trip te
the rooms of the Aloha Delta Phi Society, th?
rain poured in torrents, and several heavy ciane
