WOMEN IN CRISADK.
Joining Xcxv Anti-Trust
League Movement.
Washington, Jan. I.— Women of Washing
ton, together with a number of wives of
Congressmen, will meet to-norrow to dis
cuss the scopo and plans of the proposed
national anti-trust league, which is to be
organized for the purpose of • attempting
to keep down the prices of foodstuff?. The
promoters of the league declare that they
have enlisted the- co-operation of a number
of important members of the Kenate and
House, and that through them Immediate
steps will be taken toward organizing state
leagues throughout the country.
There will be no clash with the law bo
cause of the boycotting of certain food
stuffs, the organizers insist, for the. activity
of the league's members will be devoted
to the reduction in price of a commodity
and not he directed at individual firms.
This reduction, it Is intended. w«, be ac
complished in every case by the falling off
in demand for the article which the league
will instruct Its members to cease pur
chasing until more equitable prices prevail.
WON'T HELP ALLDS.
New York Republican Senators
Want Hinman for Leader.
Speaking for Senators Brough and N'ow
comb. Senator Agnew last night declared
that the three Republican Senators from
New York County oould not support the
candidacy of Smaior Allds for Senate
leader. Th.^ three Senators at present
think Senator Hinman the most available
candidate. Senator Agnt-w's statement 'al
lows:
We believe that the Republicans generally
throughout the state desire a reversal of
the policy in the Senate, particularly in
respect to legislation advocated by Gov
ernor Hughes. Therefore the new leader
should" be 'unmistakably representative o"
the progressive sentiment in the party anA
capable of leading the Senate majority In
support of policies of Governor Hughes ap
proved by the people.
Sentiment has been flow in crystallizing
in the leadership proposition, because Sena
tors Allds and Hinman agreed not to solicit
the votes of their colleagues, and because
the organization leaders throughout the
state have wisely refrained from interfer
ing.
We cannot support the candidacy of
Senator Allds. We think his assumption
that he is entitled to the leadership un
justified, as three or four Republican Sena
tors outrank him in length of service, it
would be difficult for him to bring about
party harmony, owing to his close asso
ciation with the old regime. Moreover, as
Senators for New York County, we could
not expect the approval of our constituents
in voting for the S<-nnt->r who cast the de
ciding vote on th" I'lpv«>nth avenue bill
after being summoned from the lobby by
Senator Grady.
At' the " present tiny? Senator Hinjnan
seems the most available candidate for
leader.
SHIPPERS PROTEST.
Coal Operators Say P. R. R.
Is Against Them.
Wheeling. TV. Va.. Jan. I.— Claiming that
they were unjustly discriminated against
by Pennsylvania Railroad influences, and
alleging that the equipment of the Balti
more & Ohio Railroad had been allowed to
depreciate until it m longer serves to move
one-fifth of tha tonnage that is offered it.
a delegation of West Virginia roal shippers
appeared before Congressman W. P. Hub
bard to-day asking his aid in securing a
Congressional inquiry into the stock owner
ship and control of the Baltimore & Ohio
Railroad.'
Shippers ?ay the policy of th" Baltimore
A. Ohio Railroad it teing dictated by the
Pennsylvania Railroad influences, and that
it is part of a policy that r.h« rival road has
adopted to crippl* the Baltimore & Ohio
Railroad and ruin its shippers, in order
that the Pennsylvania Raiiroad and Penn
sylvania operators may have a m^nopo'v
of the coal mining and coal moving busi
ness throughout the coal region? of P<=rm-

IN MOATED GRANGE
PRLTFSDER AT BAY.
Collins, Like Feudal Knight,
Holds Park Rote. Building.
c James G. Collins, pretender to, the-High
ways throne, continues to spend the holi
days in what some have called th.« moun
tains of Manhattan. Sixteen stories above
the level of the human sea which ebbs and
flows in lower Park Row the view Is in
spiring, and In case Mr. Collins thoroughly
ventilates the offices of the Superintendent
of Highways every morning when he arises
the air must be th -giving. It Is this
question of ventilation which most worries
President McAneny of 'the Borough of Man
hattan.
l"l don't care whether he s?»eps there or
Scannell," said the new Borough President
last night, ''as long *hey air the rooms
in the morning. If sanitation goes hand
in hand with litigation they can fight it
out between themselves for the present."
After a New Tear's Day of impressive
silence In the vast *nd empty Park Row
Building. Mr. Collins and his faithful sen
try. "Tom" McNamara, ' composed them
selves for the fourth night's sleep in thvir
fastness. With doors locked and bolted
and telephone disconnected they were safe
from intrusion? and could ruminate and
dream on the advantages and comforts
which the besieged have in modern times.
Eary yesterday morning, after a good
night's sleep. Mr. Collins ventured out for a
walk, leaving the trusty "Tom" in control
of the situation. He said the walk did him
good, and he was ready to receive John W.
Browne, his counsel, and other friends who
wished to call and exchange New Year's
greetings. He was just as certain .as he
ever was that he would collect the $40,000
in back salary and counsel fees, which, he
said, the city owed him. and he intended
still to hold the fort until Monday morn
ing. The appeal, which Assistant Corpora
tion Hahlo contends nets as a stay of the
peremptory mandamus compelling the rein
statement of Collins as Superintendent of
Highways, the latter characterized as in
effective and illegal, on the word of his
lawyer.
"I wouldn't ■ have started this tight at
all," said the pretender, "if they had only
acted half way decently about my removal.
When Ahearn came, into office he never
eaid a word to me one way or another, but
sent Scannell over here to take my place.
I never sot any notice of removal, nor were
any charges ever filed against me. I made
up my mind to fight, and I told Scannell
that I would. We are friends yet. notwith
standing this litigation, and he told me to
go alu-ad and win if I could."
When a reporter called again last night
to see if the siege was still in effect "Tom"
McNamara said through the door of the
private office of the superintendent that he
had explicit instructions not. to open the
door under any circumstances. His chief.
he said, was out conferring with Tils coun
sel regarding the action h«» would take on
Monday.
President McAneny has not yet decided
whether he will abolish the office of Super
intendent of Highways, but he said th»
tenure of offlc* of Collins or Scannell. who
ever held the job finally, would be subject
to his plans of reorganization.
NEW YEARS TRAGEDY

Pittsburg, Jan. — "VTinfield Gibson, aged
forty-eight year?, a prominent resident of
Monhallj a suburb, shot and killed his wife
to-night, seriously wounded a son. fired

with friends, according to the police/ Meet

old son, hearing the shot, ran in the scene
and was seriously wounded by a second bul

SEARCH IS FUTILE
MRS. (OH EX MISSING.
Belief Strengthened That Miss
Dcjanon Is Plot Victim.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Philadelphia, Jp.n. I.— At a conference
with detectives held to-night in Ills apart
ments at the Bellevue-Stratford. Robert
Buist. the millionaire seed merchant/ reit
erated his .intention to spend his entire
fortune, if necessary, to recover his six
teen-year-old granddaughter, Roberta B.
Dejanon, who disappeared, on Wednesday
in the company of Frederick Cohen, a mid
dle-asred waiter.
Envelopments to-day convinced the police
tfiat the story of the girls disappearance,
rhen It is brought out. will reveal an ex
tortion scheme in which thft waiter will be
snown to have taken advantagp of A K \ T \
grieving over the recent death of her
mother and the lonthness of life in a hotel
apartment.
The detectives and the police were unable
to account to-day for .he sudden dropping
from sight of Mrs. Julius Cohen, wife of
the mii'sing waiter, who was left, apparent
ly, destitute, ir the two furnished rooms
which she occupied with her husband at
No. 1.743 Christian street. In support of the
theory that Cohen, induced the girl to letve
home_ with & view to demanding a reward
for her return. It is sujrg-«sted that the let
ters found by Mrs. Cohen in her husband's
pockets after he left town, and whiih wer<>
later presented to the police aa love notes
written to Cohen by the girl, may have
b«en forged.
Clues received by the local detectives took
Reading. One of the most plausible tips
them to-day on a fruitless search through
received by tho police was given by Ber
nard Campbell, conductor of the Pottsville
express, which left the Reading Terminal
h«re at 6:56 p. m. Wednesday. Campbell
and others of the train crew saw a couple,
answering the descriptions of Miss r> -
janon and Cohen, leave the train at Read
ing. Every Cat and apartment house in
the town was visited to-day by the local
police and detectives from this city, but the
search was fruitless.
Cohen is believed to have hidden the girl
in New York or Baltimore, and it is in
these two cities that the detectives are
working hardest and most hopefully. It is
not believed that he can have gone fur
ther, and every outgoing boat and train in
these cities is being watched night and day.
The close friends of Mr. Buist who were
at the conference held to-night at the
Bellevue and who knew the girl well, be
lieve that she will never be found alive,
and that she carried out the Intention to
kill herself expressed in the two letters
which she wrote her father. Those who
know her best are the most unwilling to
believe that she eloped with Cohen.
It was after spending the day In great
anxiety an dsuspense and with evidences
of crushing disappointment at the lack of
news of Miss Dejanon that. Mr Buist ask»»d
for a conference with the detectives who
are working on the cap*. The ag^d mil
lionaire not only said that he would spend,
his last cent to recover his grandchild, bur.
again expressed his belief in her innocence
.of any wrong and his eagerness to receive
her back as his ward in any case.
. HEIRS SEEK SPENT LEGACIES.
The Appellate Division of the Supreme
Court ordered the appointment of a referee
on Friday to determine -whether $120,000 of
life insurance money left by William H.
Taller, of No. It East 72d street, to his
wife. Maria C - Tailer, belonged to her or
had been used properly in payment of his
debts... ;,. „ „-..> •!>.:,.:.- ...._. .
- Mr. -Taller died to. 1505. and Mrs. Tatter
died in May last. The latter's executors
contended that the money belonged to Mr«.
Taller under her husband's will. It ap
pears, however, that after the payment of
his debts the entire estate amounted to
only J3?.o<V), whereas gifts amounting to
more than 5208.000 were made to nephews,
nieces, servants and a godson, none of
whom has received a bequest. The lower
court had decided that Mr?. Tailor was
not entitled to th» money.

H» may be just as vigorous, intelligent

Uncle Sam formerly owned 1240,000 worth
of horses of this., color. i>n^ troop in

NO OPERA MEKGER
Although Hammerstein Thinks
It Would Raise Standard.
Oscar Hammer^teUi said yesterday that
if arrangements could he perfected he was.
willing to join hands with the management
•>f the .\i- ' ; ■•1 ■• • 1 1 1 an 1 ►p" i ;i House in a com
lination to improve the condition of opera
iii N"w York. Mr. Hammerstein said that
h ■■• knew nothing of any denrlte attempt ;
to bring: such a combination about, but that
»■ was .11 1 - .. with the idea. The ,
present : euson, he said, had already cost |
him J£)0.000. a cond'tloti brought «:bout lar*. -
1;. by the oversupply of opera i
the rivalry of tho two op»-ra companies.
"The present operatic war i« suicide,
said Mr. Hammerstein. "and 1 am willtnc
to join hands with the Metropolitan to ra -
the standard of productions by reducing
thf- number of performances and givini:
more care to their staging. I would, of
course, go Into such a combination as an
equal partner and for no money-mak; r-<r -<
reason. My one aim is to improve the ar
tistic standard of opera as now given m
New York.
"Tt ts at present a throat-cutting gam*.
Opera* are pitched on solely to get ahead
of the rival house, and singers are engaged
at exorbitant salaries to prevent them from
being engaged elsewhere. This season has
so far cost me $20,000. and it must have
cost the Metropolitan far more.
"If the Metropolitan is unwilling to come
into the combination I shall, of course, con
tinue as I have in the past. I shall know
next \ear how to avoid many of the evil*
of the competition I have experienced this
season. If the combination is carried into
effect we will be able to reduce the number
of operas to perhaps eight weekly, all to
be sung at the Metropolitan. I shall then
use the Manhattan as a theatre for melo
drama."
The management of the Metropolitan Op
era House gave out the following official
statement last night in regard to the re
ported merger:
Concerning Mr. Hammerstein's statement
t!iat' he ha.- su^rgft-tod a merger of the
two opera eon^anies. the Metropolitan
. and the Manhattan, and that he will aban
don the Manhattan Opera House and be
come director of the French operas aJ the
Metropolitan Opera House, the manage
ment of the Metropolitan Opera Company
States that Mr. Hammerstein is within hts
rights in making any suggestion he pleases.
These sugestions. however, will not inter
fere with nor change the policy of the
management of th« Metropolitan Opera
Company.
NEW YEARS DAY OPEKAS.
"The Daughter of the Regiment" and
"Trovatore" the Offerings.
New Year's Day brought no rest to the
opera singers. At the Manhattan the after
noon was dedicated to the return of Mm*.
TetraiiZini after h»r two weeks' tour
through the West- The opera was Doni
zetti's -'The Daughter of the Regiment."
and the popularity of Mme. T»*trazzinl
brought forth one of the largest audiences
of the season. Yet aulte as important as
the efforts of the Drima donna was the ap
pearance of Charles Gilibert in the role of
Sergeant Sulpice. Mr. Gllibert's impersona
tion ranks with the best of th* histrionic
creations of the French. stage. It is an im
personation never to be forgotten, at once
humorous and imaginative, chareed with
the martial spirit of the Gaul, an imper
sonation of which Coquelln himself would
not have been ashamed. The Tonio was
John McCormack. Donizetti's opera was
followed by "Pagliacci." In the evening
Massenet's "Herodiade" received its first pro
duction at popular prices, with Mr. Renaud
as Herod. Mr. Duffault. as. Jean and MsM
Cavalieri as Salome. There was a new
Herodias in Mme. d* Alvarez, who made, on
the whole, an excellent impression.
Leo Slezak, Bohemia's giant tenor, gave
distinction to "Trovatore". in the afternoon
at the Metropolitan. He took the C In "Di
Quella Pira" and brought forth the result
ant enthusiasm. Mme. Gadski sang Leo

A TIRELESS TURBINE.
In a shs factory at Tvry. near Far-=. *
T.aval turbine, driven by jets of steam, was
once set to work, and when fairly und»r
way was driven for :>,<v*i hours, or I.v> days,
without stopping for an instant. An auto
matic oiler kept it lubricated, and a work
man \ isited it once in twelve hours to re
plenish the otl reservoir. The speed of the
circumference of the rotating disk being
about six miles a minute, a point on that
circumference must have travelled in the
course of the 156 days almost ftve and «t
half times the distance fr^m the earth to
the moon. -Harper's Weekly.
