YouV ou LXV 11....X 0 H.H. VREELAND RESIGNS HAY HAVE BEEN FORCED. i Say He Will Devoir Time to Transit Reorganization. Herbert H. Vreeland, president of the New York City Railway Company, who was retained by the receivers for that concern as their gen eral manager, presented his resignation on Fri day to the receivers. The fact became known only yesterday. Mr. VreeJand gave as his rea fon the pressure of personal affairs and other business interests. The belief of some of those conducting the present Inquiry into the railroad stem's affairs is that Mr. Vreeland was •forced out." This belief, too. was held in some financial circles, and there this resignation of the man- Egrr for the receivers was declared to be an indication of future resignation of his other offices with the surface lines. Mr. Vreeland now Is president of the Metropolitan Securities Com pany, of the Third Avenue Railroad Company and "of the Thirty-fourth Street Crosstown Com pany, and bold! office or is a director In most Of the subsidiary lines of the Metropolitan sys tem. Last night Mr. Vreeland. in a speech to the members of the Metropolitan Street Railway Association— the employes' benevolent organl tation-at Carnegie Hall, declared that he was abandoning the operating end to give attention to reorganization -work. The hall was thronged with employes, their families and friends. When Mr. Vreeland appeared a burst of applause greeted him. He told of the prosperous condi tion of the association, and declared that Its success lay in the fact that it enabled the offi cials and men to come together at times and gets each other's views. Then he went on: I have but one more word to say to you, my friends. As you are well aware, the financial tad ; gal entanglements which unfortunately have ar'Kcn in connection with the company's affairs have made it necessary for me to give BUenlion to matters which m era to be of more pressing importance for permanent pood than operating work. But you know, as I know, the man who is to continue at the head of the oper ating department: consequently, I need say no more on that Int. but in a personal way I *"»nt to say to «ach of you here that my atti tude toward you has not changed, nnd will never "■hangf.. and that every member of this organi zation, which has become: in my judgment the most efficient and loyal ever built up in any ■ttvet railway system, will always find my latch ttrtn^ nut If I can be of any use to him. M- rredand would fay little more than in his formal speech In regard to the situation. "You heard what T said from the platform," I" 1 said when asked about Ills resignation. There's nothing more to say than that." "Are reports that you were forced out of the Place •rue?" Mr. VreeJand laughed: "There's nothing to that." he replied. "And there's nothing to any sports that T shall resign my official con- MctJon with the companies In the system. All I nave to say I asld to the thousands in there and In my letter to the receivers." Answering other questions, he said that the question of a receivership came so suddenly i-at he virtually was forced Into the place of Reneral manager. Throughout the testimony of Lemuel E. Quip? nd one or two othor witnesses, notably of te!«i Hoorebead. Mart-, the Public Service Com mission thpr « appeared much mention of Mr. reeland as the man responsible for certain ffairs Under <> uestlon - Mr. Qulgg, for instance, •••* i that Mr Vntimn§ hired him as the aaviser generally" for the company, and fre anr tl F .

Said To Be Greatest Altitude Ever Reached in This Country. Washington. Oct. s.— The greatest altitude ever reached by a kit • in this country, according to Professor Henry, of the Weather Bureau, was that recorded last Thursday at the Mount Weather Station, in Virginia, when an altitude of slightly more than twenty-three thousand feet was attained. At that height a tempera ture of 5 degrees below zero. Fahrenheit, was recorded, It is Professor Henry's belief that the kit.- will yet attain a higher flight. For the last few days Mount Weather Bureau has been conducting experiments in kite flying with a view to determining the weather condi tions at. various altitudes. For instance, a tem perature of forty degrees was recorded at the top of the mountains at ■ height of one thou sand feet, while at a height of three thousand feel the temperature was eight degrees warmer. Professor Henry says that experiments in kite flying have be<-n carried on in other coun tries, where on altitude of 25.«» feet was recorded' but numerous experiments In the New England states have failed to reach such a height. The temperature this afternoon about a mile in the free air above the station was four degrees above freezing, with a strong weal wind. PREMIER ASSAILS LORDS.

See Page 8, Part 6.— AdvU PRICE FIVE CENTS. PRESIDLVT IX CAMP. EXTERS CAXEBRAKES. Game Be ported Plenty Where Hit Party Is Established. fßy Telegraph to The Tribune.] Stamboul. La.. Oct. s.— President Roosevelt and his hunting companions are in camp about fifteen miles from this plantation to-night. The President left here at 10 a. m.. immediately after the special train arrived from Memphis. The President emerged from his car dressed in khaki. Dm Lambert and Rixey. John Mi ll henny and John W. Parker, who will hunt with him. were also dressed for the canebrakes. Horses were waiting at the company's store when the President arrived, and it Is said that a' bear steak dinner will be enjoyed this even- Ing. Holt Collier has killed two bears within the last few days.- Assistant Secretary Latta. an executive clerk, and the two Secret Service men who accom panied the President to Stamboul. are quartered in the plantation store. Their beds are cots and their food will for a few days be the con« tents of tin cans. Tents have been sent for, but are not expected for several days. • Advices late to-day were that the President and his party had reached their camp on the Tensas River. It was also announced that the President would spend Sunday quietly, and that early Monday he would start on his first hunt. According to old hunters, conditions are Ideal for several days of bear hunting. The camp is on the bank of the Tensas River. about ten miles from railroad or telegraph con nection. The dining tent stands under* two trees and is between the President's tent and the river. The President has quarters furthest from the river, with the entire camp in front of him. The guests' tents are immediately in front, while ••:. the river bank are ihe servants and guides' quarters and the kitchen. A big teal somewhat removed from the main group has been pitched fee the horses of the party. Vines hanging from the trees about the camp make a. thick screen, which shuts in the small white canvas village. Reeds grow thickly, in the foreground. The Tens.is is little more than a good sized creek at this point. Eleven tents have been [itched within a stone's throw of the river. Five will be occupied by the white mem bers of the party, and two by the negro guides and servants. Game in abundance, with fresh bear tracks all about the camp, is the prospect awaiting the President. Two hunters charged with the duty of supplying fresh meat for the camp shot two big bucks yesterday not far from where the President's tent is pitched. Squirrels are nu merous, and plenty of ash can be aught in the Tensas. The servants will hunt for small game* and aid in providing for the larder of the party. The President will not be disturbed by visit ors, as the camp is ten miles from a railroad and in a ~ section of the country that never heard a woodman's axe before work on the ramp began.' Every possible preparation has been made for the comfort of the party, a.nd all day yesterday and this morning men were at work building «hams and arranging tents. •In spite of a steady rain. Xorther.st Louisiana turned out, this morning to welcome the Presi dent when his t.ain arrived at Lake* Providence. Several . thousand ■ persons were in the crowd and the President arm cheered several minutes. He had intended to speak from the r*ar plat form" of , his car. bur a large stand had been erected by the East Carroll Parish committees which had the. reception in charge, and th 3 President wa<* asked to aJdress the assembla^ji from this stand, which was decorated with cot- . ton and rice. It was a source of pride to every man. woman and child for many miles arour.c!. and had ii.c President failed to deliver hU speech from it keen disappointment would ha.-t? been felt by the , whole parish. President Roosevelt appeared to appreclct » this sentiment, for ha said. "I must speak to the good people of Lake Providence frena the stand which they have been kind enough to build for me." and. taking the arm of Representative Joseph E. • Ranadell. he ascended the steps to the platform. MAKES A BRIEF SPEECH. President Roosevelt was introduced by Con gressman Ransdell. • "There la only one thing." the President said. "to excuse In * >man Ransdell's speech. and that is when a man is a mighty good fellow he is apt to attribute to other people the sa"%e qualities he has himself. I have found while President that there are some men upon whom I i..ii 'absolutely depend to do what they deem best tor their country. Notable among these is Mr. RandsdelL •I have come down here now because I realms that one of the greatest natural advantages ii the South is the Mississippi River, and tfc* whole nation must do Its part in improving the Mississippi. "I want to speak about one thing that always impresses me. that I have always talked about 'lv. -travelling through this country. Sine* 1
