Urged as Successor to President Orr
in Nexc York Life.
■ '*. technically at least, the success of the
New York Uf# administration ticket is still in
doubt, agents of this company already are sug
tenting th» name, of Vice-Preoldent Thomag A.
P.i'-kner at the logical successor to President AJ
■ »«ander E. Orr. It is considered entirely possible,
however, in th« probable event of the election at
th» tdministration ticket, that the raw directors
may peek a president outside the list of officers,
and even of their own ranks, as was the case re
cently in the Equitable.
As told in The Tribune eereral weeks ago, Mr.
Orr has announced his Intention to retire from th«
rresidencjr as soon as the new directors can meet
to elect his successor. According to present mdl«
cations, feveral month* xnuFt elapei before the
.directors feel themselves securely seated in the
Mr. Buckner's nam» first emerged as the agents'
choire {because, they said. he was the first In Una
for promotion and. at the same time, the most
practical Insurance man on the officers' payroll)
when some of the agents were organizing tha
"North American Life Insurance Company." They
declared then that the- would offer the presidency
of the new company to (Mr. Buckner if th* admin
istration ticket went down in defeat.
\\>r« the ticket successful, the understanding
was that they would work for Air. Buckner's elec
tion *s president, rather than attempt to form a
new company. Despite the Indications of the
Ticket's success, the new company baa been or
rsnlz^d and John Bo.me haa been slat«d for
Its presidency. Mr. Buckner at the time declared
tiiat he was not and would not be a candidate for
«ny life insurance presidency. The name of Vice-
Piesident Darwin P. Klngeley also is being men
tl"r.«d in connection with Mr. Orr'a retirement.

Anting: a candle her dress caught fire. She
tried for a moment to put it out. but not being
able to do this, ran screaming: through the flat

The. fire spread so rapidly that Kelly dropped

Th« Structural Building Trades Alliance of
America, a rational organization of loral end
national unions in the building trades, it was
announced yesterday, ha* arranged to form a
branch in this city. For several years it has
fce*n trying without Bueoeas to pet the New

th* branch. As soon as thi» branch Is formed

The main reason of the new unions for re
fusing to Join the alliance is that wages are

Man Shoots Wife and Kills Himself
— Couple Had Quarrelled Before.
Following a bitter quarrel with his wife John
J. O'Rourke, of Richmond Hill, Queens, an elec
trician, twenty-eight years old, early yesterday
morning whipped out a revolver and fired two
shots at the woman, who Is twenty-four years.
One of the bullets struck her in the temple and
the other in the right forearm, which she had
thrown up to guard her face. The woman fell
to the floor unconscious, and O'Rourke, proba
bly thinking he had killed her, turned the
weapon on himself and fell dead beside his wife,
with the revolver still clasped in his right hand.
The notes of tho shooting attracted the atten
tion of neighbors, and when some of then vent
ured to enter tha housa they found them both
lying on the floor of the sitting room in pools of
blood. A doctor set to work to restore Mrs.
O'Rourke, bringing her to consciousness after an
hour's work. An ambulance from St. Mary's
Hospital was called, and Dr. Golding took the
■woman back with him. He said later that the
condition of the woman was not serious and that
she would probably recover.
The O'Rourkes were married about two years
ago and have no children. He was looked upon
as a prosperous electrician, and had his office
on the first floor of his home, Until recently the
couple appeared to be living happily, but of late
quarrels between them have been frequent. Be
<aus>e of these quarrels Mrs. O'Rourke'a brother,
Henry Maier, who lived with lys wife on the
top floor of the house, moved out about a month
ago. Since tiien the couple have lived alone in
the house.
About four days ago Mrs. O'Rourke caused
the arrest of her husband, and he was arraigned
before Magistrate Healey, at Far Rockaway,
charged with assault. She relented when the
case was called, and begged the magistrate to
let him go. The magistrate, however, refused
to do so, and set a bearing for next Friday.
A truce must have been patched up, as the
police say that the couple evidently enjoyed a
good time last night before the tragedy. On the
table in the dining room were the remnants of
a supper, with several empty wino bottles. The
police think that O'Rourke may have taken too
much of the wine.
Patrolman Roberts, or the Richmond Hill sta
tion, who lives next door to the O'Rourkes, was
the first man to enter the bouse after the shoot-
Ing. Coroner Ambler took charge «if the case
end had the body of O'Rourke removed to
RuofTs morgue until relatives of the woman
could be told.
Die* a Fete Minutes Before He Was
to Preside at Dinner.
Illness is supposed to have prompted Neil
Florence, an a to;, to and li!s life late yesterday
afternoon by Inhaling Illuminating gas in his
room at No. 4T.3 West 23d street His death
was discovered only a short while before the
Christmas dinner was served, be having been
expected to preside.
For several years Florence had been travelling
through the Western States with the theatrical
company, "Peck's Bad Boy." of which he was
manager. About two weeks ago he closed his
engagement and returned to this city, and went
to the boarding house In 23d street where he
previously lived. Preparations had been made
for the Christmas dinner, several actors having
been Invited. He was to preside, and early la
the afternoon he went to his room, saying that
he «as going to lie down for a short while.
Shortly after 4 o'clock, when th« guests start
ed to arrive, a maid went to Florence's room to
awaken him. She rapped several times. There
was no response, and then she opened the door.
The room was filled with gas. which was es
caping from two JptH. Florence lay on the bed,
fully dressed. When Dr. Shonestone arrived
from the New York Hospital he said the actor
bad been dead only a short while.
Thirty-fourth Street.
Took Firemen Three Hours to Dig
Man Out of "Pocket."
Charles Bertram, a jovial German of consid
erabl? avoirdupois, uprnt part of th© Joyous
Ohristrras Day in a very novel situation. For
thr«e long hours he lay burled in some forty tons
of coal white an engine company was busily at
work dipping him out, a proco.=s which Mr. Ber
tram enjoyed far more than they.
It all came about this way: As Mr. Bertram,
clad in fine holiday garb, was jauntily crossing:
the coal yard of Heffner & Tillion, Slmms Lane
and Lond Island Railroad crossir.gr, he 6tepped
across the top of a coal pocket, and as he did
so trod on some frozen coal, which gave way
beneath him. and together with some forty tons
of coal he slid downward, leaving only his finger
tips showing 1 .
This was neither good for Mr. Bertram's rai
ment nor his temper. However, a good Samari
tan came to his rescue and. politely wishing him
a Merry Christmas, clasped the visible part of
his person and tried to pull him out. The effort
was all in vain and resulted in even more com
plete immoi'plon in the coal, if possible.
Xexl ii. • f:r«> dnpartiitent was requisitioned.
fiifl responded by sending an engine company
to the rc-euo. The task proved a difficult one,
and It took three solid hours to dig him out.
AVhen this was accomplished Mr. T>c-rtram was
seen to bo without ri scratch or a bruise, but
with feelings that were badly lacerated and
r!oThe? that had changed to a sombre hue. Dr.
J. W. Poole had been sent f<;-. His professional
services were not badly needed, but on suggest
ing something liquid p.s a suitable prescription
Mr. Bertram immediately brightened and has
tened away t<> take th« KiiKpe.sttd treatment.
