Mm Helev Gould Thought To Be
(river — Announcement Del/ij/ed.
Chancriior Maci-racken yesterday announced
that unnamed friends of New York University
had handed to ihe university deeds for the en
ttre Schwab farm of fourteen acres, as a Christ
ma-s gift, extending Its grounds to lSOth street.
Last May The Tribune announced exclusively
that the university was negotiating with t"he
Schwab estaio for the acquisition of the prop
erty, under authorization of its council, and at
that, time officers of the institution denied the
story, it wa.« ascertained yesterday that the
prie*> paid for the propery whs ?2i*T ( ,ooo.
While some were inclined to attribute the
BTift to Mrs. bUmcD Page, the general impres
sion at the university yesterday was that the
unnamed giver, or. at least, the chief giver.
was Miss flnlan Miller Gould, giver of
the library building and the fine Gould
Hall dormitory building When the latter build
ing was erected, the identity of its giver was
kept a secret, though it was distinctly an open
one. and it was a long time before Miss Gould
would allow her name to be attached to the
building, which was at 'first known as East
Hall. It is well known among Xew York "Uni
versity men that Miss Gould is desirous of great
privacy in her gifts to educational institutions,
and they feel that they know who Is respon
sible for the latest gift.
The announcement that Xew York X'nlverslty
was to have the entire Schwab farm, with its
buildings, free of all lien and incumbrance,
without any call on the treasury of the Institu
tion, was made by Chancellor MacCracken in an
address at the closing of the University Grad
uate School and the School of Pedagogy, in
Washington Square. He said:
A few hours ago deeds -were received, giving
to New York University the entire Schwab
farm, adjoining the south line of the college
gTounds. and carrying that line to 180 th street.
This gift of over two hundred city lots, costing
about $300,000. la the most valuable single gift
ever received by New York University with the
exception of the library edifice, which Miss
Helen Miller Gould gave twelve years ago.
Friends of the university have secured the entire
means for the purchas- without any call upon
the treasury. The property comes free of ail
lien and incumhranct- as a splendid Christmas
It has been the preference of the Pchwab
family that the university should acquire this
historic site, where the revolutionary - Fort
Number Eight" stood for many years, and is
noil < ommemorated by an inscription on a large
bowlder and by a bronze tablet s.'t in a wall.
A fine forest covers much of thf- ground, which
ris« p ISO ft-et above the Harlem ;md affords a
noble view. Academic shades will be more than
a figure of speech in the next summer school.
Two spacious mansions will be converted soon
to educate The north ;md south di
ns of the campus from lSirth street to
University avenue will approximate 1.100 feet;
Lqueduct avenue on the east to Sedgwfck
avenue on the west will be over 1.500 feet. The
entire campus will comprise over thirty-seven
The magnificent Christmas gift, the Chancellor
eaid, favored the educational plan which he men
tioned in his address at the opening of the pres
ent college year. Where there are now two
small colleges at University Heights, he said, he
would favor, a.<= soon as each faculty had- more
than three hundred students under its care, the
organizing of a third college, with Its oto faculty
and residence halls, somewhat on the plan of
those in English universities

The Rev. J. Howard Tare is the pastor of the
church. He said last night that the reason for
selling the landmark was an unusually tempting
offer which the trustees vrere unable to refuse.
The church, he added, had no site under con

where the new home would be. He also said
that, the congregation would continue to worship
\r. its old home for some weeks.

No Hope of Savins the Victoria,
Liiisc — Burial of Captain.
Kingston. Jamaica. Dec. IS -The Hamburg-
American Line steamer Prinzessln Victoria
Luise, which went ashore off Port Royal on the
night of December It!, is a total wreck. Her
hull Is full of water fore and aft, and she is Im
paled on the rocks amidships, with her bottom
pushed up. The vessel struck head on, and. the
waves carried her broadside on the ledge She
la now lying with a heavy list to port. Salvage
operations will begin to-morrow, preparatory to
handing the steamer over to the underwriters.
The bed plates and engines are displaced, and
there are nine feet of water in her starboard
side and sixteen feet in the port side.
Captain Brunswig mistook Plum Point light
house for the light stationed at the western
point of Port Royal, and turned his vessel
sharply to the north, steaming at the rate of
fourteen knots ait hour. Marine surveyors here
are of the opinion that if the Prinzessin Victoria
L,Ti!se is removed from the ledge she will im
mediately sink.
The vessel is so close to the shore that people
can almost walk on board of her from the beach.
Th" German cruiser Bremen is still standing by
her, and the steamer Virginia went to the seen"
of tlv wreck this morning, but returned here
after seeing the condition < t lhe Prinzessin Vic
toria Luipe. The members of the crew have been
brought to Kingston.
The body of Captain Brunswig, commanAer
of the Prinzessin Victoria Luise. who shot ami
killed himfielf In his cabin after the steamer
went ashore, has been landed here. The back
part of his head was shattered by a rifle bullet.
The body was buried. •
One of the passengers of he Prinzessl Vic
toria L.ui.se to-day grave the following account of
the disaster:
About 9 o'clock on Sunday night, when we
were abreast of Port Royal light, the Prin* •
Victoria Lulse suddenly appeared to shudder,
then she stopped and a terrible grinding noise
was heard from under her hull. The order was
given to reverse the engines and go full speed
astern, but the steamer remained fast. The
discipline displayed by the officers and crew
was remarkable Every man kept to bis post,
the passengers retained their presence of mind!
and there was no panic. Rockets were sent up
from the stranded vessel, but apparently they
were not t/een, for there was no response to th»?
signals from the shore. News of the wreck
was taken to Kingston by a sailboat, which
made slow progress, owing to the light breez-'.
After breakfast Monday we went ashore hunted
up some native boats and made our way t-»

was kept from the passengers an.l did not be

Some Concern in England — Confi
dence in Mr. .Roosevelt.
London, Dec. 19. — The British press, editorially
and' through its correspondents in the United
States, if paying keen attention to American-
Japanese relations, and Ambassador Aokfs
speech at the American Asiatic Society, Secre
tary Metcalf's report on the San Francisco dis
pute and President Roosevelt's message on the
Japanese school situation in California are dis
cussed with some concern. "The Tribune" thinks
President Roosevelt's firmness and .tolerance
have had their reward, while the weakness of
M. Stolypin, the Russian Premier, is a pledge
for peace almost as valuable as President
Roosevelt's firmness and popularity. "We may
afford to dismiss both the Russian and the
American scares from our minds." says "Tha
Tribune," "but none the less the recent rumors
are far from agreeable or reassuring for those
who remember the grave obligations in the
event of a war which Lord Lansdowne's treaty
imposes upon England for the next decade."
• The Tribune" acquits Japan of any desire to
pick a Quarrel and thinks that the other powers,
notably her ally, would have something to say
on the subject, but admits that the official color
fanatic element Is a danger and that until It Is
educated or suppressed it is hardly to be ex
pected the Japanese will feel much of a sense
of fraternity toward their white rivals in the
Pacific. It Is obvious, tha paper declares, that
England, as an ally, may play a great part in
moderatitTg the resentment of the Japanese and
checking their litiwise ambitions, and. above
all. In helping Japan to achieve cordial recogni
tion as a civilized power. If Japan feels she Is
frankly treated as an equal by th«« old powers.
"The Tribune" concludes, the temptation to
make herself feared where she is not respected
may die In the Isolation from which it sprang.
Th , Standard" thinks that President Roose
velt's second thoughts on the San Francisco
school question, as revealed by bis last message
to Congress, may prove the best.
"The Chroni?le" says: "Let us hop. that
President Roosevelt, who seldom rails, will sue
.-,■,' even here."

Spectacular Death After Sparing
Officer's Life.
William Madi«=qn. of Rogues" Gallery fame,
shot himself through the heart in front of No.' 6
2d street yesterday after ■ desperate fight with
detectives and a wild hue and cry through the
street?. Madison, better known M "McPher
son," was wanted for a Mount Tsnssai robbery.
His death was as public and spectacular as
his crime. Brought to bay. he was about to
shoot down an officer, when th- latter, defence
less for the moment, pleaded with him to de
sist. The hunted man then turned the nun
on himself.
Monday evening a gaunt, wild eyed man en
tered the jewelry store of Samuel Raymond, at
No. 62 Mount Vernon .avenue. Mount Vernon.
Pointing ■ revolver in Raymond's face, he said:
"Give me everything you have."
He then shifted the gam to the left hand and
plunged his right through a 3ho-.v case window
"and gathered up a hand full of chains and other
jewelry valued at about >7-> Still covering Ray
mond, blood streaming from Ma right hand, he
backed out of the store, crossed the street,

Mere going through Houston street, when
near Elizabeth street. Raymond, pointing to a
man across the way. said:
"George. George, there's the fellow."
Raymond darted across and grabbed the man.
The latter had his hands in his pockets.
"I'm sure he's the man!" shouted Raymond to
Atwell, who had followed close at his heels.
Atwell grabbed the man by the collar and
wrenched his right hand out of his pocket, to
see if it was lacerated. It was. Just then the
man swung with his left hand twice, and
caught the detective between the eyes, felling
him to his knees. He then drew his gun and
pointed it full at the head of the detective.
Atwell drew his billy. although he had a gun in
his pocket, and. rising to his feet, struck the
man twice in the head, but failed to knock him
The fellow wrenched free from the two men
and ran down Houston street into Elizabeth.
A crowd of Italians joined the chase.
Atwell. following closely, drew" his gun and
fired two shots into the pavement. Patrolmen

the Mulberry street station. Joined in the chase.
The crowd at their heels yelled "Stop thief!**
On ran the robber, and. turning two or three
times, covered Bligh and McNamara, who were
In uniform, with his gun. and then, turning
again, kept on his run.
He Struck Btocdsst street and ran at top
speed toward the Bowery, crossed over north to
2d street and then, in front of Xo *>, whirled
once more and thrust his gun almost into the
fans of Bligh. who by that time had abßaajl
overhauled him.
"For God's sake don't do anything like that!"
said Bligh, who had not drawn his gun.
Instantly the fellow turned the gun to his
own breast and fired three shots as fast as he
could pull the trigger.
The man died in an ambulance from St.
Gregory's Hospital that was passing at the
No Jewelry or anything else that would lead to
his connection with the Mount Vernon hold-up
was found on him.
Madison, according to the meagre police rec
ord, was about thirty-three years old. He had
been .i member of the "Ist Regiment, and had
served with that command in the Spanish-
American War. In IPO2 he was arrested for
thru-sting his hand through a window of Simp
son's pawnbroker's shop, i:, 42d street. He got
away with a tray of diamonds, but was captured
after a lively chase.

Aftpr the last ballot had been cast Superin
tendent Kelsey told a Tribune reporter that a
rough statement of the outcome of the election*
might be forthcoming at the end of the§week,
although Mr. Kelsey thought that the broad rw
suit of the New York Life election would b#
known earlier, so overwhelming, "he said, had
been the administration vote. The actual r»-i
suits, he said, could not be known "for months.**

claiming the election, of the administration

the ballots sent to the home office were pro

believe" that the total vote of the international
committee did not exceed I."<»»,«im
"I believe that the administration ticket," he
added, "has been carried by 100,t*». after mak
ing: all allowances for errors and duplications.**
Mr. Untennyer, however, estimates that a:
least 30.000 of the pro-admlnl-tratlon proxies
are duplicates of ballots, and therefore void, and
that 78,00*), or at least 40 per cent, of the votes
received In "administration mail," ran to tb*
international ticket, thus lopping- off a total of
100,000 votes from the administration ticket.

tual Life's headquarters, he said, was in flattest
mal. he had good reason to know, although the
international committee estimated It at 62, W».

ternational committee a majority of D.OOO in
the Now York Life and 7.000 in the Mutual, his
figures b«»ing: New York Ufa — "Administra
