The Governor went direct to the Waldorf, where he was Joined by Mr. Shouts. Mr. Magoon said there hadn't been a case of yellow fever on the . renty-four days, and that while it would be absurd to claim that there would be no return of the disease or its twin companion, malaria, he believed that ■eminent had a scientific and practical knowledge of the causes of the disease and would always be able to stay any epidemic. The Governor, unwittingly, threw a new light on the discussion provoked by Poultney Bige low*i article by declaring, n answer to a Query, that Mr. Bigelow landed on the zone on ■kgiving Day. a day on which, the Gov ernor declared, there was not a tap of work In the zone Mr Bigelow, it In his article that he ha ;il made a thorough study of the conditions. The article, at least, was point. Mr. Bhonts, who was sitting by the Oovernor while he made this remark, was a bit sur prised. "Why, Governor." he said, "that throws an entirely new light on the subject. I'm sure no that Mi. Bigelow must have ■1< pi a little while and dreamed a little while."

He said, all told, nearly nineteen thousand persons employed down there This includes employes down to the grade of laborer. Asked about the that gambling and disorderly houses ex isted, the Governor said: There Isn't a gambling house or house of ill repute on the zone. This is equally as malicious as the stories about the government Importing women for immoral purposes. These stories- and let me emphasize this— are thoroughly dis credited by the conduct of the women them selves. <Mr police have yet to make their first arrest of a woman on a. charge of immorality. You know the laborers employed on the canal work are negroes from Martinique, speaking a French jargon. Now, you can't ask or get a white woman to work for them. Somebody must cook, somebody must wash their clothing some one keep the house In order. That's what these women are doing. They are domestics employed in boarding houses. In offices as scrub women and In other branches of domestic work. I know some of them employed In ministers' houses as cooks. Undoubtedly some of them are living with men. too. i make no pretence to deny this. Wherever this Is a fact, we have the word Of both the man and the woman that they were married years before. It's hardly within our province to deny these statements We must give them justice In this, ns In other things. They are a different race from us. In their country the marriage ceremony Is largely a parade, and costs bo much money 1 am told >r,u — that they deny themselves the luxury of such ceremonies. In many instances the man goes to the woman and Invites her to live with him until they have gathered enough of property rights, as It were, to have this public ceremony. They live together and are recognized as man and wife, and they have reuse, too. of the propriety of things. MOIiOCCJS REBELS C.I IX. Orders to Send Warship to Bombard Arms Factory. Madrid.

Finally I took money from one of them, find .<ent a lawyer to Washington to investigate my case I knew it would !>«• my ruination, and still I wai so strangely fascinated thai I went ahead.

[By I>l»Krsph to Tha Trih'jn* ] Albany. January 2S.— Th«» resolution calling for an Investigation of Superintendent Kliburn and the State Banking Department will be pre sented to-morrow night by Assemblyman \V.i!r. wrlght. chairman of the Comni'.tf>» on Banks, and. according to the present programme, will be passed Immediately. Its fate in the Senate is much more doubtful, for it may be shelved there temporarily, until its opponents feel their way sufficiently to be more sure of their meth ods of attack. The sentiment against It thcrsj has not moderated, but a degree of caution has been acquired by its opponents. The resolution, a drastic document demand ing the probing of the methods of the depart ment and a severe scrutiny of the banking laws. , will carry an appropriation of Jlo.«>»>. This ordinarily would mean Its reference to the Com mittee on Ways and Means, but tha leaders) among the Assemb!y:nrn are so heartily in favor of the Inquiry that unanimous consent probably will be obtained for its Immediate passage. It is not unlikely that Assemblytna:* Morels chairman of the Ways and Mean* Committee, one of the strong supporters of the publicity policy which is demand' the in quiry, will move to have this unanimous con sent to avoid the delay of a rtfuence to his committee. In the Senate, it may be predicted with safety that no such course will be taken. There the resolution, introduced by Senator Stevens, chairman of the Committee on Banks, probably will be referred to the Committee on Finance, among whose members are Senators who have been opposed to the inquiry since Im mediately after Governor Higgles consented to it and Superintendent Kilburn asked for it. The degree of opposition it encounters there will be the full force of opposition to the various reform measures which will come up this ses sion. Whether, in the face of public sentiment aroused by th«» Insurance dlai losures. it could be stifled there with safety is a question which its opponents are discussing quietly amnr? themselves. Their argument for public con sumption will be that th^ Republican party's chances ar»? likely to be injured by the too con spicuous washing of linen, but among the As sembtymea who intend to support the resolution, all loyal Republicans, the sentiment is that only a complete exhibition of a clean clothesline will satisfy the voters. The subject opened by this inquiry is a vast one. whose rnmifirauor.s woul.l prove as varied as those of the insurance ques tion, and perhaps far more significant, in th^ opinion of legislators «h" ,ir<- urging ih>» in vestigation. Thes** men kii.>>\ that stories hay* been widely circulated thir stocks have b*en carried on margin by bankine houses for th»ir "friends." and th.-y realize th* signtflcaa l ■"yellow dog funds" which were carried by th-* insurance companies in different trust com panies. Whether trust companies and banks might not have similar funds of their own hi one of the queries which they are hoping to an swer by this investigation.
