"I guess we won't change the plans." decided Governor Pennypacker. "If that crowd out there In the rain has stood for two hours waiting to tee the President, I guess It will stand there a little longer and witness the ceremonies." gn, out to the dripping grandstand went the President and his party, the Governor of Perm- Fylvania and his staff and several hundred prom inent citizens of the state.

Sheehan Gets Manhattan Concern from, Hoadly. Control of the % Manhattan Transit Company passed yesterday from Joseph H. Hoadly and his friends to John C. Sheehan and Interests associated with him. Mr. Hoadly. who hi presi dent of the International Power Company, and also of the Manhattan Transit Company con firmed the report of tho sale of the controlling Interest in the latter property, but when asked for details of the transaction and for informa tion as to the plans of the new owners, referred inquirers to Mr. Sheehan. who said that he and his associates purposed to utilize the franchises controlled by the company, but would be inde pendent of the great traction companies. A rep resentative of the Interboiough-Metropolitan company discredited the report that the pur chase had been made In the interest of that cor poration. According: to Wall Street rumor the Sheehan Interests Intend ,to broaden greatly the scope of the company's operations, one of their earliest moves being to place in commission a number of electric stages. The company's stock was exceedingly active in the late trading on the curb. The Manhattan Transit Company was incor porated in 1902, as the successor of the General Carriage Company, the charter of which gave it the right to operate in any city of this state public vehicles propelled by electricity, com pressed air or any other power. Cyrus Field Judson was president of the General Carriage Company at the outset, and among the early directors were E. M. Post, O. F. Thomas, Joseph Lelter the late General Samuel Thomas and Camille "Weldenfeld. The Manhattan Transit Company's charter gives It the right to manu facture, operate and deal In vehicles of all kinds for transporting passengers or freight. Under its franchise the company claims a monopoly of passenger traffic other than on street railway lines and the Fifth Avenue Omnibus Line (and with equal rights in Fifth avenue), in the street* of the entire city of New York. \ The company also controls 51 per cent of the capital stock of the New York & Brooklyn Railroad Company, which obtained a charter in ISOG at Albany and planned the construction of a tunnel under the East River, with termini near the City Hall in this borough and the building now known as the Borough Hall in Brooklyn. The securities of the New York & Brooklyn Railroad Company were turned over to an English syndicate about six years ago, a conditional sale having been made, and in the fall of 1902 F. B. Esler. the original promoter of the company, was succeeded as its president by Charles S. Drummond. of London, a repre sentative of the syndicate, Mr. Drummond be coming a little later president also of the newly formed Manhattan Transit Company. It was rumored at the time that at the tunnel terminal In Brooklyn connection would be made with the surface and elevated lines of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company, of which William F. Sheehan. brother of John C. Sheehan. was counsel; but an officer of the tunnel company denied that any agreement for direct connection had been en tered into. Whether or not any work has been done on the projected tunnel has never been learned. The company ln-ISQG obtained the necessary consents from the Mayor and Aldermen of old New York City, as well as a charter from the state; but the enlargement of the city since that time, and the enactment of legislation extending the powers of the Rapid Transit Commission, has caused the question to be raised whether or not the original authorizations would be sufficient for empowering- the' company to proceed with th© construction of its projected tunnel. The authorized capital stock of the Manhat tan Transit Company Is $10,000,000, and the amount outstanding at last reports was $6,000, 000. Mr. Hoadley has been the president since 11* >4 Mr. Sheehan was disinclined to talk about the deal last night. "We have bought the property," he said, "and within a day or two will have a statement to give out which will be interesting to the public. Until that time I do not care to say who is associated with me in the enter prise." "The company controls some valuable fran chises, including one to build a tunnel to Brook lyn." It was suggested to Mr. Sheehan. "Do you propose to utilize these franchises?** "Yes, we shall utilize them," he replied, "and advantageously to the public, too, we believe." "Are you working In conjunction with any of the existing transit, systems?" was asked. "No. it is an independent movement." MAT CORNER WHEAT. Charles M. Schwab Said To Be Leading Big Chicago Deal.

The wreck occurred directly In front of the Lansingburg station, at a point where the grade is one of the steepest on the line of the road •which winds its way through the mountainous country to Boston. The passenger train was one of the best equipped, as well as one of the fastest on the road. It is a regular train, known as No. 5, and leaves Boston daily at 0:30 a. m. for Albany. It generally consists, as it did to-day, of five cars, a baggage car. smoker, day coach and two parlor cars. As near as can be ascertained with any degree of dfflnlteness — for the rail road officials and employes are reticent— tho train was about one hour late to-day when it pulled up in front of the Lansing-burg station, to watl for a chance to get into tlw Troy station. Borne of the railroad men say that as soon as the train stopped a flagman was pent to the rear to signal approaching trains. Nothing definite can be learned on this point, however. There Is a sharp curve a short distance above where the collision occurred. The snorting of a locomotive just around the curve was the first intimation of the approaching special, which came thundering along with eighteen cars on the steep grade, and in the fraction of a second had crashed into the rear end of the passenger train, smashing the last two cars, which were Pullmans, like eggshells. Both these cars were swept from the track and rolled down an embankment into the back yards of some tenement houses situated along the track. The engine of the special kept right on for a dozen yards and then turned turtle, thd front end ploughing into the. ground and the tender backing into the car behind and telescop ing it. The special was drawing four troops of the 14th United States Cavalry from Fort Ethan Allen to Newport News, where they are to em bark for Cuba. The soldiers lost no time In recovering from the shock of the collision and quickly got to work to rescue the injured, whose eiies for help rose high above the yells of tho railroad men giving orders for their assistance. DAYLIGHT AIDS THE WORK. Daylight facilitated the work, and in a com paratively short time most of those pinned flown by the wreckage were on their way to the Leon ard Hospital, which is one block from the scene of the wreck. Many of the passengers on the train had left it when it came to a temporary stop and were pacing up and down, the track when the crash came. To this some of them probably owe their lives. One man's grief was pitiab'f* He was J. W. Da< ey, and he ran up and down the tr.;< k crying for hi 3 wife. In a few minutes, when her lifeless form was identlflei by him. h<i collapsed completely and was taken to a nearby house. There he told his listeners that he had been married last nitfht at Arlington, Mass. Tho ( ouple were on their honeymoon and had plann iin extended trip. To-night he was making ar rangements to have the body of his bride shipped back to Arlington. ENGINEER SURRENDER? S . Thomas Holleran. engineer of the special train, who lives in Troy, directly following the wreck went down to the police station in Lanamgbnrg anii surrendered. He was locked up mid would nrike no statement to tbOM who sought to get liis explanation of who had been at lault. He v.-.-is visited during the nl^lit by many railroad men. A story that could not be verified was that as soon as he jumped from his engine he ran to the station house, pursued by a number of men. His fireman, whose name is said to be F A. lirown. of Mechantcsville, could not be found to-night 't Ik said that the conductor of ;ho special was J. Collins, of Lansingburg An enormous crowd from Troy. Albany and the surrounding country gathered about the wreck, and remained until after midnight. Lieutenant Colonel Hardle. In command of th>.* cavalrymen, established martial law in the vi cinity of the wreck, and the troopers aided the local police in keeping ail the curious ones at a respectful distance. Picket tinea were estab lished and maintained during the night. Many of ihe soldiers built campflres, which added to ih" general Incongruity of the desolate scene. Tl'e special was made up of seven Pullmans and eleven cars for horses, the latter being in the front of t!i- train, directly behind the wrecked engine. There were four troops of cavalry, or about three hundred and fifty men and four hun dred horses The fact that the men were In the i.-.r of the train saved many lives. It is be lieved.

WINS IN BITTER EIGHT. Bryan and Hearst Indorsed by Maxsach Mftti Dem ocrats. Boston, Oct. 4— A new era. for the Massachu setts I>emocj-acy was begun to-day by the state convention of that party when, after a turbu lent struggle over indorsing William Jennings Bryan and William R. Hearst, John B. Moran, District Attorney for Suffolk County, who was already the nominee of the Prohibition party J. B. MORAN. Nominated for Governor of Massachusetts by tha Democratic State Convention. and the Independence League, was nominated for (iovernor by acclamation. The full ticket follows: Governor— JOHN B. MORAN, of Boston. Lieutenant Governor — E. GERKY BKOTVN, of Brock ton. 8a rotary of State— CHARLES C. PAINED U Hyannis. Attornoy Gen«ml— JOHN W. < I'MMtN' JS. of Fall River. Audttof THT-MAS L. BUCOEZC, of WVst Syrlngfield. Treasurer and Receiver Genera". — GEORGE M. HARRI OAN, of Lowell. Two of the candidates besides Mr. Moran had been nominated by the Independence League, Mr. Brown for Lieutenant (lovernor and Mr. Hlsgen for Auditor. The entire ticket was nomi nated by acclamation. rvEMAXPS FOR REFORM PROLIFIC. The platform adopted was prolific In demands for reform, and centred largely In those changes In the law which have been strongly favored by Mr. Moran during his service as District Attor ney and In his declaration of principles when he announced his candidacy for Governor. The resolutions held that it was Democracy's duty to "wrest the government from the grasp of powerful hypocrites, who have pos^d as custo dians of the national honor and who have drained mighty fortunes through the vile chan nels of their monopoly, frauds, thefts, poison ings and violence." The indorsement of Hearst's Democracy and of his leadership in Now York was the. first rock on which the convention was split. Neither Bryan nor Hearst was supported for the nexl Presidential nomination in the platform, but both ■were praised. Bryan was hailed as "America's great commoner, whose moral leadership has been of world wide influence and whose voice has been raised for the uplifting of humanity in every land " Hearst was proclaimed as the man who is doing "all thru great wealth, great in dustry, ability and faith could do in expounding sound political principles and exposing to the people's gaze the enemies of the republic."" The Bryan paragraph was greeted with cheers and handclapping and a general demonstration which lasted over a minute, but when ex-Mayor Walter L Ramsdell. of Lynn, who was readins tho platform, reached the first words of the Hearst tribute he was stopped !•>' a storm of hisses and cries of "No, no!" and "Bryan oniy:" Then the Hearst supporters, recalling that the Hearst Independence League had indorsed Moran for Governor, almost drowned out the Bryan delegates. loses control OF convention*. The permanent chairman, John P. Feeney. in vain rapped for quiet. He surrendered, ex hausted, and the reading of the resolutions was not resumed until the convention had spent itself. At the end the demonstrations against and for Hearst began all over again. The voice vote on the question of adopting the platform as read wae a roar, rather than a chorus of ayes and noes. The vote was doubted, and on a rising; vote being taken the chair declared the resolutions adopted. At this moment Professor Clark, of Williams College, a delegate, stood in the rear balcony and shouted for recognition, and, amid encour aging cheers, mounted the platform to protest againat the Hearst plank. "This is a Massa chusetts convention," he cried, "and the politics of the Stato of New York have no place here." After many interruptions be succeeded in mov ing that the resolutions bo reconsidered. On the first test of strength over the Hearst plank there was a defeat for the Hearst supporters. A motion to lay the motion to reconsider upon the table was defeated, though by a close mar gin. On the question of reconsideration there was a vigorous debate, in which Congressman Sullivan took a prominent part. He hoped, he said, that the convention would strike from the platform a plank which would never be ac cepted by th* Democrats mof Massachusetts as a true expression of their opinion. Reconsidera tion wae opposed by Mr. Brown, the candidate tor Lieutenant Governor, by ex-Representative John A. Coulthurst. of Boston, and by Repre sentative James H. Mellen. of Worcester, who exclaimed that the disrupters of the party two years ago were trying to disrupt it now. On a second voice vote the chair declared the mo tion to reconsider lost and Ignored many pro testing delegates who doubted the vote. The convention was disrupted a second time over the indorsement of Mr. Bryan for Presi dent. It came after all the nominations had been made, and when many of the delegates ha 1 started for their homes, ft was a move which seemed to split the Moran forces themselves, find it was a step that was supported readily by Messrs. Quincy and Sullivan. It was started quietly by Mr. Williams, when most of the delegates were expecting adjournment, and pre sumably when many of the Hearst delegates were absent. Mr. Williams movd that the con vention record itslf as favoring th»» nomination of Mr. Bryan by the national Democratic party In 1908 He characterised Bryan as the greatest Demo cratic leader within the memory or man. He held that th* convention should not only give him a pleasant greeting on his return from abroad, but should go further than this and proclaim Its earnest support of the Kebraskan for the Presidency. The resolution was bitterly opposed by OranvlHo S. McFarland. of Cam bridge the secretary of the Moran campaign committee. In unequivocal language he charged that the Bryan resolution had been presented with "felonious intent." Josiah Quin cy he contended, had not seconded the indorse ment out of any spirit of friendliness to Moran, and he declared vigorously that If Mr. Moran was present at the convention he would not sanction any such move. The resolution indorsing Bryan for President was declared carried after a voice vote, and the convention was Immediately ad journed. .'"-; ' The delegates were disappointed by the non appearance of Mr. Moran at the hall, but 11 was announced that he was prostrated at his home from overwork. NEAR RIOT IN HAVANA. Insurgents in City Resent Giving Up A — Zayas Peace m aker. Havana. Oct. 4.— A disturbance which at one time threatened to become a riot occurred this evening as the result of the conspicuous riding 1 through the streets of this city of former in - -. Tits. The chief of police had Just telephoned an or der to all the police stations to take the small arms from all Insurgents throughout th« city when Pamaso Castillo, an ex-insurgent, was seized by the police, while riding past a precinct station.

WAMSHIP& IN DAXGEBi Tubing Defective, Says ex-Employe of Shelby Company. [By Telegraph to Tho Tribune. J Pittsburg. Oct. 4.— A sensation was created in Pittsburg to-day by the publication of a signed affidavit from Frank L. BsMUwM. formerly em ployed by the Shelby Tube Company, a subsid iary branch of the United States Steel Corpora tion, that during and before 1904 tubing of an inferior quality was used in the boilers of the battleships Georgia and Maine and of the cruis ers Pennsylvania and Colorado. According to his affidavit, the company found it impossible to deliver the tubing for the boil ers according to contract time, and Emmet?, at the instigation of his superiors, stole the stamps from the government inspector's desk after ha had gone home and stamped inferior tubing as having passed the government te^t. Emmett says that the four vessels are likely to blow up at any time, aad for that reason he has told the story. According to a dispatch from Washington, Truman H. Newberry. Assistant Beeavtajy of the Navy, has received a report on the matter and is investigating. This afternoon Edward "Worcester, first vice-president of the Shelby Tube Company, issued a signed statement entering a genera! denial of the charges, and offering to as sist the government in any investigation.

SULLIVAN DEFEHS BLOW Adjourns Convention Without An nouncing Withdrawal. About 2.000 loyal Sullivan men gathered la and around the Finn Club, at Hudson and Spring streets, last night to ass whether' "Big Tim" Sullivan would be nominated for Senator. The convention adjourned till Monday night without making a nomination. "William K. Hearst has challenged the Sul livan men to battle. Sullivan lives In a Senate district, which he controls absolutely, and from which. In a three-cornered fight, he probably would be elected. If he runs, the Independent League- will run a candidate against him. Hearst has characterized him as the "lord high protector of crooks and criminals," and says he must get out of politics. Mr. Sullivan resigned from Congresa with tha distinct pui-pose of being elected to the stata Senate. Everything was ready for him last night at the Finn Club to Mesa* Ht-arst s lenge. In the parlance on. the Bowery, he atde stepped. The Tammany district leaders in the 13tk) Senate District are insistent that "Big Tim" shall make the race. They are confident of wta nine:, no matter what Hearst does. Charles P. Murphy is secretly opposed to Sullivan running for the Sena re. Hearst and Murphy are ataasV Ing together. If Sullivan runs he will have the> support of the regular organisation, but he will be acting contrary to the wishes as! r Murphy. "Tim" is fjausfj to think it o\ i now and Monday night. He s.iyn that ho does no* think he will run. City MaKistrate ""Battery Dan" Finn ■ was chairman of the convention.

"I did not," he replied, |am anxious to have this thing done with." The Congressman waa asked if fher-> was. any truth in the report that he would decline the Senate nomination and denounce the Buffalo candidate. In r> ply hf> said: "There is alsoluttly no truth in it. I'm for any man the convention chooses, if any on* says I tutSssfl SB ASMMsM th-> Democratic candi date it's a li* 5 ." '"Big Tim" was cheered in Hudson street by several thousand residents of the Greenwich Vil lage section, when he left the convention. Magistrate Finn was asked if the stand taken by Mr. Hearst against "Bis Tim" had had any thing to do with the adjournment. "The I>emoerats or' this Senate district will take no dictation from Hearst or any one else," said Mr. Finn. "If Mr. Sullivan will take tho nomination he can have it. Borough President Ahearn and Tom Foley, as weß as myself, want him to run. What do we care for Hearst? Ha can get off the state ticket if he wants to. V\"a won't take dictation from a candidate for Gov ernor or a candidate for President. Tha. Demo crats of this district are [oval to their friends. They cast the votes. If Sullivan runs in this district he will beat all the candidates they can name against him. two to one." When Congressman Sullivan was asked last night, following the convention, if he was golnar to run. he said: "They want me to run. I don't want to run. and I don't think I will run. Mr. Hearst's op position to me has nothing- to do with the case." "When Alderman "Little Tim" Sullivan was asked about the possible withdrawal of the "Big Fellow" from the race he said: "Congressman Sullivan's name being offT tha ticket in the loth Senate District will mean a difference of from s.t»N> to 10.0»X> votes below 14th street. 'Big Tim' Is a man of his word. He said before the Buffalo convention that If Hearst was nominated for Governor ho would not go on the ticket." In the new lGth District John T.
