June I.— The Superior Court of North Carolina to-day issued a decree au thorizing John Armstrong Chanler to change his name to Chaloner. This is regarded as the first step toward the ultimate possession by Mr. Chanlcr of all he seeks in the litigation which has been pending in* the courts of Virginia, North Carolina and New York. Mr. Chaloner, as he is now to be called, in herited a great fortune, but his family, contend-" ing that he was insane and not the competent custodian of so large an amount— million an! a half dollars— had him taken before the courts of New York, where he was adjudged insane and placed in Bloomingdale. He has been pronounced sane by V.c courts of Virginia and North Carolina and is now en gaged in an effort to establish his sanity before the courts of New York. If he is vindicated the complete control of his heritage will be placed In his hands. Mr. Chaloner issued a statement to-night declaring that his decision to change his name to the old form results from the fact that he has suffered so many indignities under the name of Chanler he wishes to free himself from the stigma.

O'iNEIL DEFIES SWITCH FOELKER MUCH BETTER. Vote on Racing Bills Expected Next Week Upon His Return. [By Tcleerarih to The Tribune.] Aibanj-, June I.— Vigorous '°n!als of the re ports circulated by racetrack agents that ho would SMitch when Governor Hughe3's anti racetrack gambling bills came up again were telegraphed v> friends here to-day by Senator William T. O'Neii from his home at St. Regis Fall." Senator O'Neii met the expectations of his friends by declaring that he would be more strongly in favor of the governor's measures than ever. At the samo time came \\<>rd from Staatsburg. where Senator Foelker is recovering from an op eration for appendicitis, that he was gaining strength fast, and expected to be here noxt week mpie time for the vote on the gambling bills. Thus there is seemingly no re.-tr.on why the Legislature should not . .ipon this impor tant matter and adjourn next week. Despite th'ir assumed confidence, th? racing intrre?ts have agents here and elsewhere work ing desperately against the Governor's bills. The vehemence of their work now after a lull is taken here to indicate that somewhere along the line their plans have failed, and they expect a hard fight again when the Legislature assem bles after this week's recess. Considerable com ment has been aroused among the advocates of the bills by the recent reports sent out by race track agents about changes of position which were to defeat the Governor's bills, all of which have proved false. Senator O'Neil's emphatic denial of a switch is only ie of these. The tale that Senator Tay lor was going to get married and go to Europe, regardless of the impending vote on the bills. never was regarded seriously for a moment by those who knew his character, and served here only to indicate the- shifts to which the racing people were driven. Senator Hill, in Buffalo yes terday, denied categorically reports of a "flop' on his part which had been spread there. In talking with the Tribune correspondent on that subject, just before going home last week, he de clared that in his judgment none of the Senators who had voted for the bills would change his position. •■I cannot imagine one who would dare to switch, in view of the great sentiment the Gov ernor has cslled forth. Can you?" he said. There is no doubt that several Senators who voted for ti.e Governor's hills, while really op posed to them, would like to change. But they are on record, and the reasons which influence their judgment against their inclinations still hold good On the other hand. Ibt-re are stories here that some of the men who voted against the Governor are likely to switch Giichrist. of Brooklyn, and Wllcox, of Auburn, are men tioned, but the Governor's friends are not de pending upon any such changes.

Seerciani Wants Strong Roosevelt Indorsement and Revision Plank. [From The Tribune Bureau] "Washington. June I— Secretary Taft and Wade H. Ellis, Attorney General of Ohio, held a long conference this morning, at which the national platform to be adopted at Chicago was discussed. Representative Burton, who is to place Secretary Taft in nomination, and Sen ator Burrows, who is to be temporary chairman of the convention, also dropped in and various matters j>< taining to the coming conversion were taken up. This evening Secretary Taft and Judge Ellis called at the White House and had a talk with the President. Secretary Taft assured his friends this morn ing tha' if his wishes were consulted he would be satisfied with nothing short of a Roosevelt platform -one which would not only indorse those of the President's policies which have al ready been approved by Congress, but also those which Mr. Roosevelt has promulgated for the guidance of the executive branch of the govern ment and others which he has recommended for legislative action. The tariff plank was also discussed, and the Secrets rv indicated that he was prepared to stand on a pretty strong revision plank, almost as strong, for instance, as some which have been fathered by Governor Cummins of low., that he wanted tariff revision as soon as it was prac ticable to accomplish it. but he also expressed satisfaction with the tariff plank of the Ohio platform this year, and it is probable that the Ohio plar' wiil form the basis for the national tariff declaration. Secretary Taft is as emphatic In his opposi tion to combinations in restraint of trade as is the President, although he appreciates the ne cessity for some perfection of the Sherman anti trust law. This does not mean, of course, that he regards the civic federation bill, which treats with vagueness a multiplicity of subjects, as the ideal form of modification or perfection. He realizes that some alterations should be made, but he will not yield one lota in his conviction that the monopolization of industries by great combinations should be checked by legislation and the proper enforcement of existing laws. It is not to be expected that the national plat form will seek to lay down a series of legislative enactments which Congress should carry out. In fact, the Secretary himself is disposed to re gard Congress as competent to devise methods whereby evils pointed out by the Executive may be cured, and. moreover, it has never been the custom for the national platform to go into great detail; but those who look for the adoption of an ultra conservative platform at Chicago are likely to be disappointed. The national declaration of the Republican party will clearly Indicate the purpose of Secre tary Taft to carry on the work of the adminis tration fro the point where President Roose velt leaves off. There is a good deal of speculation regarding the chairmanship of the national committee, and some of the political prophets have thought fully, arranged that the place shall be assigned to Senator Crane, of Massachusetts. Secretary Taft and his immediate advisers a c saying nothing about the national chairmanship at this tim*. but to those who are fairly close to them the selection of Mr. Crane for the post of "gen eral commanding the forces" does not look like a particularly shrewd guess. As a result of the conferences held to-day be tween Secretary Taft and his political support ers, it has been practically decided that in ad dition to Senator Doliiver. who had been previ ously selected, speeches seconding the nomina tion of the Secretary shall be made by Senator Borah, of Idaho, who swung his state into line for Taft despite the espousal of what th» Presi dent has termed "the second elective term va gary" by his colleague, Senator Bourne; by George A. Knight, of California, who created much enthusiasm by his speech seconding the nomination of Mr. Roosevelt four years ago; by Senator Loner, of Kansas, if he is able to post pone an engagement which may interfere, and by the Register of the Treasury.

BAILEYS IX HONDURAS. A Plantation at Tda Bought— The Goldsboro Unloading. Puerto Cortez. Honduras. June 1 —The steamer Goldsboro. which formerly had an American reg ister and sailed from New York on May 1 under the British flag and provisional registry, arrived at this port on May 16. She carried a cargo of a thousand packages of farming machinery, sun dry supplies and machinery for oil boring and road making, in all valued at about $">o.<X*>. This cargo was shipped, according to the mani fest, by the General Supply Company, of which F. G. Bailey is agent. The consignee is Charles H. H. Meyers.

Since their arrival in Honduras they have pur chased a banana farm of two thousand acres, for which they paid $20,000. at Tela, and ley will prospect for oil and coal on the ;•>•?■■?- ad joining. They made the proposal to the Hor.duran au thorities to place the Goldsboro on the coast trade between Belize and Biuefields. calling at various Honduran ports. In the mean time, how ever, the British Consul here, on the order of the British Minister to Honduras, cancelled the British register of the steamer and lowered the British flag. The Goldsboro registered on Sat urday here under the name of Atlantida. and now carries the Honduran flag. She sailed at once for Tela and is now unloading her cargo there. LAW AXD CHURCH CLASH. Bishop Compelled to Place Ban on Church and Remove Pastor. [By Telegraph tr> The Tribune) Scranton, Fenn.. June 1.-All Catholics are barred by a ban placed by Bishop Hoban on St. Joseph's Church to-day from worshipping there in the future. The ban is the result of a recent Supreme Court decision sustaining a portion of the congregation in an action to prevent Bishop Hoban fiom acting as trustee of the church property. This la directly opposite to the law of the Catholic Church, which makes the Bishop of the diocese in which a Catholic Church prop erty 5* situated the controlling factor. As there was no way in which the decision could be obeyed without violating an absolute rule of the Church the Bishop was compelled to forbid any further Catholic service in it. and remove the pastor.

MAUEETANIA CHAMPION HOLDS THREE RECORDS. Beats Lusitania in Day's Run, Aver age and Elapsed Time. The Cunard Line big turbine steamer Mauri tania came abeam the Sandy Hock Lightship at 7:50 o'clock last night after a passage -* 2.500 miles over th« long course from Daunfs Rock. maintaining a record average »peed of 24 M knots. This beats the 1.-;= -,- i - record aver ag« by three-hundredth* of a knot. . Captain Prltchard sent these facts in a wire less message last night to the Cunard Line's of fice. No official time of passage was given, bat computed from the distance and th» average speed it is 4 days _""> hour* and 12 minutes, which boats the westward record of the Lusitania over the long course by 10 minutes , Although handicapped by IMB inability to as* more than three-quarters of her entire propeller force, the big turbiner broke th« world's record for the fastest single day's run. making 0"35 knots from noon on Saturday to noon on Sunday. maintaining for that period an average speed of 25.40 knots. Nor did the loss of a blade on on« propeller prevent the Mauritania, according to a wireless message to the Cunard office, from. maintaining an average speed of _'*» knots tor fifteen hours ending at 3 a. m. yesterday. She was at that hour 21* miles east oi the Sandy Hook Lightship, with thick fog ahead "Wnen «-'-;.-• was reported again as passing the Nantucket Lightship at 12:30 p. m.. it was ob vious that she. had lost time. She had aver aged a trifle over IT knots for th<» run of seven ty-seven miles to the Nantucket Lightship. Th«» performance of th<s Mauritania, driven by three of her four propellers and delayed by a fog for four and a half hours before passing th» Nantucket Lightship, is considered phenomenal. Another feature of the big turbiner'3 splendid work was her ability under handicap to get three knots more in a single day's run than the Lusi tania's record of 632 knots, made from noon May 19 to noon May 20 on the latter^ last westward run to this port. The Mauretania's best previous run over the long course of 2.559 knots was on the passage ended on April 17. which she made in 4 day* 23 hours and 59 minutes. On her last westward passage to this port the Mauretania lost a blade of one of her pro pellers, and she was rushed at top speed to Liv erpool, where she went into drydock for tem porary repairs. She was unable to get out on schedule time, and after leaving Liverpool for New York she encountered more trouble with the disabled propeller. The big Cunarder was scheduled to leav<* N»-v T^rk on Wednesday, but owing to her tardy ar rival her departure has been postponed until Thursday, when she will depart at 10 a. m. and m the eastward run under the same pro peller handicap. The officials of the Cunard Line have a stupendous task on their hand 3to get the Mauretania in readiness to sail on tim» Thursday. She will dock this morning about 7:30 o'clock, and the entire day will be consumed in getting rid of passengers and baggage and filling her coal bunkers. She win have fifty and one-half, hours in port if «■ =■ sails on time on Thursday, most of which will be spent in taking on about six thousand tons of coal, the eastbound mail arid baggage and a small amount of express matter. Had it not been for the fog encountered short ly betore reaching Nan tucket Lightship. th<» Mauretania might have docked last night, whicn would have meant a savin? of at lea^t ten hours in her short time of preparation for sail'ns But while it will be an unusual feat, the officials of the Cunard Line are confident the Mauretania will pass out of Sandy Hook by Thursday noon.
