His latest move was made yesterday In the Supreme Court when his counsel. Mar tin W. Littleton, made two applications be fore Justice McCall. the net effect of which was to obtain a Jury trial for Ahearn. Mr. Littleton insisted that the higher courts had reviewed only the legal points at issue. .-.« chief point In the argument was that the Court of Appeals has passed upon only the single legal issue certified to it. name ly, did the Governor have the authority to remove Ahesrn. and did it follow, there fore, that the re-election of Aheiru as Borough President was illegal.

Thomas K. Miller, a llfesaver on Flushing Bay, was in the vicinity when the fire broke out, and climbed up and let down the ladder of the fire escape from th" first floor. As the ten ants streamed down past him he went up to the fourth floor and disappeared through a window . By this time Captain Shannon had or dered the men of Truck 3 to run an extension ladder up to the floor where Miller was. The latter soon appeared with a baby in hi* arms and passed it to the firemen. He brought out two more children and went back into the flames to see if any one else had been left on the floor. When he did not reappear Captain Shan non went through the window and found him unconscious inside. Miller was brought out and ho and the children were taken to St. Mark's Hospital.

NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 12. 1909. FOB TAFT'S RETURN SO < OM'EKEXCE VET. BaUinger-Pinchot Control :crsy May Go to Congress. [r*r?-n Th« Tribune Bur«»u.] v,'a*hineton. Nov. U -The char.- meet ing of the Attorney General, the Secretary of War. tr.- Secretary of Commerce and Labor and the Secretary of the Interior in the Presidents office to-day led to the re port that a conference was fceins held over the political situation which has been fully described in these dispatches and to the wholly erroneous report that Secretary Ballinger had demanded the resignation of Oifford Pinchot. the Chief Forester. The fact is that each number of the Cabinet sought the President on matters relating to his own department, and that the chance meeting of all four actually resulted In hindering the transaction of any business. The political situation will not be for mally discussed with the President until he. returns from Connecticut, and possibly not until next week. Secretary Ballinger has made no demand for the resignation of Mr. Pinchot. and will not do so. When the proper time arrives, the entire situa tion will be laid before the President, each member of the Cabinet contributing such information bearing on the subject as nas come to his knowledge. It Is probably a safe prediction that even then no line of action will be urged Hi Mr. Taft. His official adviser* will, of course, express their opinions if they are asked, but there seems to bo a practically unanimous opin ion among th*iM that they will have done their duty when they have Informed the President of th* facts, and that the de termination of his course should rest en tirely with him. Further detail* of the charges winch are to N» preferred against the Postmaster Gen eral have tern received here, and it is now learnfj that they -vk ill attempt to show that Mr. Hitchcock, as chairman of the Republi can National Committee, definitely prom ised to the Guggenheim* the appointment of Judpe Balli.iger at Secretary of th* In terior in return for their support of Mr. Taft in the Northwest, «nd that Mr. Taft &i proved this pledge. It is reported here that an attempt will be made to drag in the name of John Hays Hammond, who ac companied the President on his recent trip through the West, as Ui< go-between who conducted Use negotiations between the Gug grnheini interests and Mr. Taft and his campaign manager. Friends of Glfford Fin-hot asserted to day in emphatic terms that, whatever hap pened, Mr. Pineho* would not resign hi* place as chief forester, and that If Presi dent Tail «l->ir*d to dispense with Mr. Pin < ! st's services he would be compelled to dis miss him. as Mr. Finchot purposed, were his services dispensed with, at least to have the satisfaction of going before the country and saying that he had been forced out of th« federal s-nic* because of his loyalty to th» Roc«eve!t policies. It is confidently predicted by members of the bureau of forestry that the entire controversy between the chief of that bureau and the Secretary of the Interior will bs made the subject cf a Congression al Investigation, and there are Indications that already wires are being pulled to secure such Investigation by committees of the two houses which are friendly to the crest service. Should the effort to have Congress in vestigate the controversy prove successful —and it seems generally believed that It will— a decidedly interesting situation will be caused. The- forest service has many friends and many enemies in Congress. The policy for which it stands is very generally approved, but the methods by which that policy has been prosecuted have often been deemed drastic and ex travagant, and for a number of years the annual appropriation for the forest service has not been made without protracted and bitter debate. It has been assumed gen erally that the so-called insurgents would espouse the Plnchot end of the contro versy. This view doubtless grows out cf the avidity with which Senator LaFollette seized on the affair and the vehemence with which he has denounced Secretary Ballinger. Senator Cummins, on the other hand, told some of his friends to-day that he had not been especially interested in t'.e controversy and had formed no con clusions as to its merits. If th»re Is an investigation there will doubtless be a vigorous contest in the Senate regarding the committee which shall conduct It. The Committee on Agrl i-M.t-ire and Foiesiry will doubtless claim to make the investigation. Sena tor Dolllver is chairman of that committee and Senator Burkett, another insurgent. Is a member, as is, curiously enough. Sena tor Guggenheim. There is one vacancy on the Republican side of the committee. As such an investigation *ould naturally deal la-geiy with the subject of coal lands in Alaska, the committee on Public Lands twli doubtless insist upon its right to conduct the investigation. Its chairman is Senator Nelson, of Minnesota, a decided In surgent, but all the other Republican mem bers are regular. The list Includes, more over. Senator Hey turn, of Idaho, an Im placable foe of the forest service. Any investigation by Congress would be regretted by the President, for the reason that It is the custom of committees of Congress sa take such a mass of extra neous testimony that their Investigations, as in the case of the- Brownsville raid, rarely serve *ny useful purpose and almost Invariably necloud the issue.

HOOKWORM I.N' NSW YORK^ Dr. Darlington Does Not Agree with Hygienic Expert. New Orleans, Nov. 11.— That there are ten times as many victims of the hook worm in New York as there are in tfce factory districts of Alabama was stated l>y Miss Susan Lawrence Davis, a hygienic expert of New York, before the Southern medical convention here to-day. She has just completed a thorough investigation of hookworm conditions in New York. Dis trict of ColumbU. Texas. Arkansas. Ohio Missouri, Tennessee, Georgia. South Caro lina and Alabama. "The hookworm parasite has got In more of its work in the North than in the South," says Miss Davis. "Now. I ex em ine4 many morn persrns In the fac tory districts of Alabama than I did in New York, but. would you believe It, I found ten times as many persons afflicted with the parasite in New York as in Ala tama? The scientific stories that the poor and shiftless are exclusive victims of the parasite are all rot Why. rlgrjt in trre best residential district* of Manhattan. Brooklyn and New Jersey I found un limited workings of the houknorm." A resolution was unanimously adopted by the convention to-day indorsing President Taft's proposition that there should be established a federal health department. The association also went on record as strongly favoring the acceptance of Mr. Rockefellers gift of fcIMMM for a cam paign against the hookworm disease, and instructed the councillors to prepare reso lutions thanking the giver. When told of the statements of Miss Pax-Is. Health Commissioner Darlington said that no cases of hookworm disease had com* before the Department of Health. Dr. Darlington raid that some physicians had made statements to the effect that the disease existed in New York, but that personally he did not be lieve there were any cases in the city.

Ind . shortly before noon to-dsy and killed J. Hangary Faweett, cashier of the bask: s»riousiy woundei Joan. K. Woodward, president of the bank, and wounded James R. Tucker, a negro chauffeur, probably fatally. •According to William J. Hall, the boy'a father, who has a furniture stor* at No. 802 South Preston street, In this city, young .Hall has be«n "a household tyrant." He denies that the lad is insane. "He is simply mean," bald the father. The family 1* formerly of Knox.' '-. Term. The father detailed his son's actions for the last few years, saying that dime novels had been the youth's constant reading. Among young Hall's effects was found a powerfully made cabinet, lined and out fitted like a room. It is believed that the boy expected to escape with his loot to-day; crawling into the box. which was con signed to "R. J. Smith, Knoxvlll*. Term.," and escape as freight. Hall came to New Albany in an auto mobile, the property of Mrs. Walter Es cott. a resident of one of the most fash ionable districts of Louisville. The chauf feur. James R. Tucker, a negro, told the police that the youth took possession of the automobile this morning In front of Mrs. Escott's home and forced him, at the muzzle of a revolver, to drive him to New Albany. Hall entered the bank by a rear door, a revolver in each hand. He gave th* com mand, "Hands up. everbody; get Into, the vault:" t There was a rush for safety by the cleiks ami several persons who were transacting business in the bank. President Woodward advanced toward the robber and attempted to talk to him. Halls response to Mr. Woodward's ques tion as to what was wanted was two shots, which struck the official In th* arm and the stomach. Inflicting dangerous wounds. Fawcett then rushed forward, but be fore he could reach the fallen president was shot In the neck and breast, dying a short time afterward. Hall., still without speaking a word, walked quickly out j the front door, dropping one of his revolvers just outstds the building. Turning the corner to where the automobile stood, he jumped into the rear seat, with the command to th« negro. "Get out of this as fast as you can." But the automobile stood still, the negro, thor oughly frightened, being unable to move. Hall Jumped to the ground, drew a re volver and sent a bullet into the negro 1 ! back. An instant later the assassin was running at top speed down the tank to the Ohio, where he jumped into a skiff He had pulled out some distance Into the stream before the astonished cttizen3 of the town and the river bank knew what had haDpend. One old tailor on a dredge, seeing the youth rowing frantically for the Kentucky shore, gave the alarm through a megaphone. Owners cf river craft then engaged tn a race for the desperado. The police, how ever, in a motor boat, distanced all fol lowers, and in a short time had Hall at bay on an Island Just south of the big bridge connecting New Albany with West Louisville. They covered him with re volvers and the arrest was made without a fight. The prisoner was taken on board the launch, and after a ten rai;iute3 run was at the dock in New Albany. There the police were surprised to find »» men who wanted to take the prisoner. Only by a piece of strategy was the latter s life saved, as a chorus of "Hang him! Lynch him! He killed Fawcett." greeted the police. Captain Adams of the New Albany police, in charge of the capturing squad. was equal to the occasion and ordered Hall to lie down. The prostrate form of the prisoner was carried from the boat, and within a few minutes was lying In the bottom of the patrol wagon. The crowd, however, wanted to see the prisoner and surged around the wagon. With his foot on the captives neck Captain Davis stood up In the wagon and addressed the per sons who were noisily demanding ven geance. "The man is dead; we saw him take some poison just as we nabbed htm." said the police office. And to the driver: "Go ahead." The patrol wagon drew away from the crowd, but instead of going to a morgue it went with lightning speed to the New Albany Jail, and this the crowd did not fail to notice. They apparently divined that the officer's statement was a ruse, for in a tew min utes the jail was surrounded by a mob of rapidly growing proportions. Fully awake to the situation, once more the police adopt ed a move that probably scaved the prison er's life. An automobile was summoned by telephone and through a back door the captive was rushed into the machine and a moment later was being whirled through the streets of New Albany, leaving the mob far In the rear. The state reformatory at JeKersonvllle was just five miles away and the prisoner was safely oehind the bars there in less than twelve minute*. Both Fawcett and Woodward are Louis ville men and prominent In both business and social circles. Their friends hurried across the river to render any assistance possible. Apprehension Is felt for the re covery of Mr. Woodward. He was taken to St. Edward's Hospital, where it was St. Edwards Hospital, where it was found that his Intestines had been perfo rated. There is said to be scant hope of his recovery. The negro chauffeur was found to have received a dangerous wound in the spine. - — • LIPTON PROMISES SPORT.
