m FOR DIRECT • PRIMARY AGREEMENT Republican Senators Appoint Committee to Meet the 3overnor To-day. HO p F FOR A COMPROMISE _ Einman, Cobb and Meade Are Itemed — Machine Legislators in Panic — Up to Speaker , Wadsworth. [By t-arh to Th* Tribune.! Albany, May I*o.— Headed by Senator j Cobb. an effort was begun to-night to I unite the Republican majority of the dilate in support of a direct prima/r t.jl! which, without going so far as to tholish The state convention, should be j f«;tisfactory to Governor Hughes as far i ts , jt did .re Indications are that a I ,»jea*ur having marked improvements . over the present so-called "Cobb com- j prosiise" bill will be evolved. Many leg islators believe that if such a bill can be \ worked out in conformity with the Gov ernor's general ideas, as is the pro j-rarr:- it will be likely to meet his ap- ! rxoval. This SCOTS was received with no little dismay by those machine legislators who had believed that the defeat of the Hin man-Green bill in the Senate ended all Ippe of direct primary legislation this s<ssiin. Speaker Wadsworth, appre hensive at the prospects of the present edition of the Cobb measure passing the fenate. spent much time with various frnatore to-day. His work was taken l.y "-. primary Senators to be testi mony to the strength of the demand for that Fvstem They declared that the Speaker evidently did not relish the prospect of having a direct primary bill put up to him and his Rules Committee again, In addition to the income tax resolution of Senator Davenport. Cobb Announces Conference. Senator Cobb at the end of the Senate frssion this evening announced a con ference of Republican Senators Immedi ately to discuss primary legislation. About twenty Senators attended. There iva<- a general talk on the merits of the twri primary propositions pending be fore the Senate — the so-called Cobb com promise, providing for the direct nom ination of Senators, Asse-nblymen and Congressmen, and the Meade-Phillips fcii! adopted by the Assembly, providing tome improvements for the existing pri mary - 'Stem. Criticism of the official primary ballot to both the Cobb and Phillips asasures as made by various Senators. The ballot, very similar to the Election Day ballot, provides for an "organiza tion column,** which could be voted straight, and opposition or anti-organi lation columns. Features of a proposed primary ballot like this caused Governor Hughes to veto the Prentice official pri mary naliot bill in If>o7. It was sug gested that the Cobb bill might be im proved greatly in this respect if the feat ures of the Hinman-Green bill regard ing the ballot were incorporated in it. That ballot follows in form the Massa chusetts election ballot, on which can flidates' Dames -would appear arranged in the order of filing notice of candidacy, thhurh the "organization" or committee fisiienated candidate would head the list. Decided to Name Committee. Finally it was decided to appoint a tommittee to confer with the Governor -to learn his views and to find out. if possible, just -what he would stand for in th« way of a compromise bill which should not be the precise Hlnman- Green bill. That committee is made up of Senators Cobb, Hinman and Meade. Thes* Senators will call on the Governor tomorrow and lay the proposition be fore him. "I think we shall be able to reach swne understanding with the Governor," 'aid Senator Cobb to-night. "I believe a :>" bill, with some changes, perhaps, *lil paw •• . Senate. I don't know what tt» Assembly will do with it, but I don't eee-svhy it should not be accepted there."' direct r>ri:nary men are much pleased *' this renewed activity on the part of Senator Cobb.

EM. ROLLINS PAYS FINE AS SMUGGLER Penalty of $2,000 imposed After Plea of Guilty. Follow ing Indictment. AFFAIR'S TOTAL COST. $4,000 Charges Against Wife and Son Dismissed After Payment of Duty and Full Foreign Value of Goods. Ex-Governor Frank West Rollins of New Hampshire pleaded guilty late yesterday before Judge Hand, in the United States Circuit Court, to having imported merchandise Into this country contrary to law, and was fined (2,000. Before this he had paid at the Custom House about $31800, representing the foreign value of the 147 articles found in the nine trunks brought over on the steamship Lusitania on May 12, and duties of about tljMO, As he would have had to pay the duty if ho had .declared t^ie groods bought abroad. ?I,oOrt. the ex-Governor was out of prn-ket $4,0<»0 for failing to accept the invitation of the Acting Deputy Surveyor to am^nd the papers when the omission of the articles was first discovered by a customs inspector. The grand Jury entered the courtroom shortly before 7> o>io<-k and handed up an indictment against Mr. Rollins. It wns t»-n minutes later when the accused man and his counsel, Alfred A. Wheat. appeared. Henry A. Wise, the T'nited States Attorney, had had a ■ onference with the court, and after Mr. Rollins took a <hair near the bench, stepped ba k. and Mr. Wheal made the plea of guilty for his client. Called Victim of Circumstances. Addressing the* court, the counsel said that Mr. Rollins had always had a high reputation in New England for integrity, and that he was now a victim of an un fortunate chain of circumstances rather than a violator of the law. Mrs. Rolling's illness in London and on shipboard were mentioned in extenuation, as having been a great strain on her. husband, who was eager that his wife should get ashore and to their home at Concord, N. H. Mr. Wheat said it was unlikely that Mr. Rollins should know all the contents of the trunks. His son was returning from school at Munich, and his accumu lations were packed, and a pair of rid ing breeches had been sent in the' trunks by a friend in London to be delivered to her son. Mr. Wheat started to explain more about the breeches, when the court interrupted with the remark that it was generally known what they were "used for. ' ' Mr. Wheat said that his client did not receive the government regulations with the declaration. He had put down a fur coat for $SOO. expecting to be told at the pier what other articles should be en tered. The counsel told of the occur rences at the Custom. House, said Mr. Rollins had asked for counsel, but had been fissured be didn't need one, that if he did as he was told it would be all right. The arrest Mr. Wheat said, was a great blow, being entirely unexpected. Judge Hand Interpolated questions, ask ing especially regarding the Governor's knowledge of the /contents of the trunks, saying if he was ignorant of them the plea of guilty was a stultification. Mr. Wheat said that there was not entire ig norance, but that the articles were most ly for women's wear. Mr. Wis.', after Mr. Wheat had said that as the foreign value of the articles ami the duty had been l»aid sentence should he sus|>ended. opjiosed this vigor ously, calling attention to the request by an acting deputy surveyor that Mr. Rol lins reconsider his declaration. He called the situation unfortunate, but said that the facts were as stated in the indictment. : "The failure to declare is such a gen eral practice," counsel for th«- defence i began, but the court interrupted, saying ! that that was why it should be stopped. I Then Judge Hand said that owing to I the distinguished position occupied by •the accused man he was inclined to be more severe than otherwise, but would curb his Inclination. He would have to assume that the failure to declare was a conscious omission, and the line was then inflicted.

(Photographs reproduced by ccurteey of "Colller'» Weekly") CONViCT MRS. CHESBROUGH Found Guilty of Smuggling, but Jury Recommends Mercy. [By Telegraph to The Tribun*.] Trenton, N. J.. May 20.— Mrs. Matilda M. Chesbrougn, wife of Fremont B. Chesbrough. a wealthy lumber dealer and steamship owner of Newton, Mass., was convicted of smuggling in the T*n!ted States District Court here to day. The verdict was accompanied by a recommendation for mercy. Mrs. Chesbrough and her husband had re turned to New York, when the Jury, nfter debating for four hours, came in with its findings shortly after 8 o'clock to-night. It is believed that the recommendation for mercy precludes any possibility of the court's sentence including a term of imprisonment, this being the evident in tention of the jury. The maximum fine which may be imposed is $5,000, and the court will be asked to fix this amount upon the ground that the government has b^en put to heavy expense in con ducting the proceedings. The trial oc cupied three days. Mrs. Chesbrough was one of several tourists trapped by th«* customs offi cials about a year ago. Proceedings will now be started to confiscate a pe;:rl necklace which has been appraised as high as (30.400. together with other'ar ticles found in Mrs. Chesbrough's bag gage. NUN ARRESTED IN PARIS Charged with Big Swindle — sociate a Suicide. Paris," May 20. — -A woman known as Sister Candide, who »as formerly su perior of the Order of St. Ann and for many years has been engaged in an elab orate scheme of charitable work,.includ ing the operation of a sanatorium for children suffering from tuberculosis, was arrested here to-night, and astonishing revelations have been made by the police concerning the woman's methods. After raising considerable money by lotteries, Sister Candide, the police say, began borrowing great quantities of jew elry, ostensibly to sell on commission. The jewellers finally became suspicious and brought suit against her. Much jewelry has been found in the pawnshops of Paris and London, and to-day an as sociate of the woman.

ACCIDENT IS A MYSTERY His Body Found Wedged Be tween the Cars and Station Platform at Bay 35th St. Kenneth F. Sutherland, chief clerk of the Coney Island police court. Demo cratic leader of the lfith Assembly Dis trict of Kings County and the real ruler of Coney Island, was instantly killed last night in attempting to alight from a West End train at the Bay ?>r>th street statfon shortly before I<> o'clock. Sutherland left his home, at No. 2J15 Bay 31st street. Bensonhurst. early in the evening to preside at a meeting of the 16th Assembly District Democratic Club, of Which he was president. He started from the clubrooms. in Coney Island, at i»:30 o'clock to return to his home. The first intimation that there had been an accident was received when tha conductor of the train, Barnett Yuling. of No. 31 Bay 14th street, heard a cry and the passengers felt a jolting as if the train was running over an obstruc tion. Tuling immediately pulled the emergency brake and stopped the train, the air brakes having already been on for the stop at the station. Yuling and the passengers rushed out to see what had happened and found the body of a man wedged between the truck of the car and the concrete plat form of the station. Ernest H. Finley, a real estate operator of Borough Park, identified the body as that of Suther land. The police of the Bath Beach sta tion were informed and an ambulance was summoned from the Coney Island Reception Hospital, but Dr. McE>onald, who responded, said that Sutherland had been killed instantly. The body was taken to the station, and the news of the death of the "Czar of Coney Island" spread so rapidly that within an hour every train was crowded with passengers on their way to the Bath Beach station to learn for them selves whether it was true that "Kenny" Sutherland really had been killed. Sutherland was for years the right hand man of John Y. McKane. He served onp year and eight months in Sing Sing, following a year in the King.s County penitentiary, and was not re stored to his civil rights until the close of the administration of Governor Odell. His prison sentence was the re sult of his connection with McKane when the latter was convicted of elec tion frauds. Sutherland was justice of the peace of Gravesend in 1893. when Mayor Gaynor, then a candidate for Suwome Court Justice, suspecting that registry frauds had been committed in McKane's baili wick, Bent men down there to copy the lists. McKane refused to give them up, and Sutherland had many at the watcfe t-r« arrested and locked ap an charge* of vagrancy. As a result of this action oh his parr a ai>fi iv! grand jury was appointed by the Governor to Investigate tho matter. Sutherland was indicted for oppression and for ballot l»;.x stuffing and later found guilty <m the Cornier charge. Ho forfeited his bail, but finally gave him self up, pleaded guilty to a felony charge and was sent to Sing Sing. On the charge of oppression he received his sen tence to the county penitentiary. Upon his relt-ast- froiQ Sing Sing he again entered politics and soon gained complete sway over (he Coney Island district. H,- succeeded also in a short time In ■miffing a.

Wls., May 20.— HaHey's comet, minus a tail, was under observation in the west from 7:40 to 8:35 o'clock to-night As tronomers first observed it through a 4 inch telescope at 7:40 o'clock. At 8:10 o'clock the phenomenon was visible to the naked eye and remained so until it became lost behind a cloud bank at 8:35 o'clock It disappeared below the west ern horizon at 9 o'clock. "The comet Appeared as bright as a star of the second magnitude," said Pro fessor Edwin E. Frost. "No tail was ob served. The exposures show principally n continuous spectrum, which means it is chiefly due to reflected sunlight. The gaseous constituents were less conspicu ous than when the comet was in the morning sky. and appeared faint. "The comet should be visible to the raked eye to-morrow night from 8 till 9 o'clock, in spite of a bright moon. Whether it will then appear without the tail remains to be seen." San Jose, Cal.. May 20. — Director Campbell of Lick Observatory gave out the following statement to-night: "The comet was observed here brill iant in the western sky, the head being brighter than a first magnitude star. It was visible shortly after sunset. The tail was seen as of length 10 or 15 degrees, projected on the moonlit aky." COMET "STORMS BROADWAY So Thought the Crowd as Blaz ing Taxi Shot Through Street. The theatre crowds in front of Daly's and Weber's theatres felt sure they had seen Halley'a comet descend to the earth last night as they were filing out of the doors. Directly in front of Daly's stood a taxicab. driven by James Jordan, of No. 22f> West Houston street. Sudden ly the car took fire, flaming up like a torch, and before the embryo comet could -be extinguished the machine was a wreck. The taxicab had just drawn up in front of the theatre and Jordan had opened, the door to admit .a man /and woman passenger. As he jumped Into his seat there was a flash of flame from the rear and dense clouds of smoke. The woman screamed and leaped from the car. fol lowed by her escort, and' Jordan, losing his head for a minute, opened the throt tle and the flaming car sped down Broadway. Tn the crowds in the street it looked for all the world like a comet, the trail of fire behind impersonating the elusive tail of the aerial traveller. The car was finally brought to a stop in a side street and half a dozen fire engines doused the flames.

NOTABLE FIGURES IN PROCESSION Some Lack of Reverence Among the Great Crowds — * Mr. Roosevelt Follows Mounted Rulers in Carriage - — King's Charger and Pet Dog Follow Coffin. [ By Cable to The Trinun^. 1 London, May 2»>.— King Edwards funeral pageant to-day was virtually a reproduction of Queen Victoria's funeral in form and spirit. It was alarmed on the same lines, and the Earl Marshal, re- I lieved from the restrictions imposed by 1 the aged Queen's preference for semi ! state, was enabled to adapt It to King Edward's well known love of costume. | color and pageantry. While the street | decorations, with the exception of Dor chester House and other private resi dences, were as inartistic as before from the excessive use of purple and lack of unity, he enlarged and enriched the original design. The military forces lin ing the route were increased to 28,000. the procession was more brilliant in color than it was before and fully a mile long, and the cavalcade of monarchs and princes was more imposing. There was not. perhaps, the same rev erent hush betokening a sense of na tional bereavement and personal loss. The multitudes of sightseers were noisier and more excitable than they were when Queen Victoria's final passage was made through the capital. The long, rolli k ing tramps by the hosts of sightseers around the slums of Westminster toward j St. Stephen' s had tended to develop not a mafficking spirit, but a taste for prac tical joking, yet in spite of much levity and rough manners the sincerity of the public grief could not be questioned. The service at St. George's Chapel, Windsor, was as simple as before in ritoal and music, and the presence of a larger company of royal mourners lent additional distinction to it. There was the same magnetic thrill when the gun i carriage bearing the body was seen at j Windsor and London, and the religious ' influence was stimulated by the memo- ■ rial services held with one consent at i churches of all communions throughout ; the kingdom and by the stoppage of j trains and the suspension of business af the funeral hour. A Representative Display. The procession itself was a series of representative guards of honor. First came battalions and files of the army j and navy, led by the territorial forces I organized by R. B. Haldane, Minister of War, during the last reign: a detach ment of colonial corps and three bat talions from the special reserve. For the sake of completeness files of the hard 1 working branches of the army, such as the Medical Corps, the Ordnance De partment and the Army Service Corps. were included in this characteristic mil itary tribute. A thin line from the Ind ian army preceded the .battalions of in fantry and Foot Guards, detachments of engineers of artillery, and troops of the Hussars, Horse Guards and Life j Guards. The same idea of an object lesson in military organization was carried out at ! Queen Victoria's funeral, when the Boer j war was still unfinished, but to-day's pageant was more brilliant, the men being more carefully rhosen and the \ uniforms looking smarter and less sombre. Notable Foreign Delegation. There was a new and picturesque feat ure after the military attaches of the foreign embassies had passed. This was a deputation of officers from foreign armies and navies, nine Continental nations being represented. It was a garish blaze of gold lace and decorated uniforms, and commanded admiration all along the line of march. The regi ments of which King Edward had been the honorary colonel were represented by prominent officers, as were also the navies whose uniform he had worn by courtesy on ceremonial occasions. The German delegation was th*» largest, and two weather-beaten captains of the navy accompanied the officers of dragoons, cuirassiers and hussars as nonchalantly as though there were no such thing as rivalry in sea power. The Spanish and Portuguese officers were not more gayly uniformed than were the Swedes. Danes and Norwegians, and the inspector of cavalry n f the Bulgarian army was a match for the Russians and Austrians in bravery of trappings. Three Field Marshals in Line. The military and naval bodyguard came after the foreign officers, and it was resplendent in gold lace and decora tive orders. The representatives of the headquarters staff and the army coun cil were preceded by a half dozen lieu tenant generals and three field mar shals. veterans of British campaigns throughout the world, Lords Roberts and Kitchener, Sir Evelyn Wood. Gen eral Sir Neville Gerald Lyttelton and Lieutenant General Sir Horace Lock wood Smith- Dorrien among them. Eight admirals headed the delegation from the Board of Admiralty, which included Reginald McKenna. the first and only member of the Cabinet to appear in line behind the navsrt officers. There was a distinguished company of sev^nty-nve aids in King Edward's ser vice, flashing by almost too quickly for recognition of their faces, the dukes of Richmond. Northumberland and Bed ford among them. Lord Fisher being In the last five. The heavily bearded Duke of Norfolk rode in solitary state behind the massed bands, heading, as earl marshal, the bodyguard of court officials, equerries and gentlemen-at-arms.

The familiar faces ceased to make an impression on the spectators' eyes, for the gun detachment af the Royal Horse Artillery was close at hand, with its flies of bearers, and behind it was th* khaki colored gun carriage, with the coffin lifted high and covered with the pall, surmounted by the crown, regalia and insignia of the Garter. King Ed ward, like Queen Victoria, was goins to the grave like a soldier, with sor rowful sighing of majestic requiems 'n the air and multitudes shaken with emo tion. The black artillery horses had taken the places of the famous creams, and in front of the royal standard wns the King's charger, without a ruler. Neither trumpeter nor gayly dressed herald was needed to proclaim the dead monarch's last appearance in solemn state. • It vras a spectacle of unutterable pathos, as well as of stately grandeur, and strong men were not ashamed when there wer«* tears in their °y»s. Many did weep when they =aw the dead King' 3 favorite terrier Caesar, led by an orderly. The most remarkable of the many guards sf honor followed the gallant sailor prince. Louis of Battenberg. and the royal standard. This was the body guard of monarchs and princes, num bering fifty-three, without equerries or officials, ani including n!ne kings. Fore most among them was King Oaatfjet not looking short in stature when mounted on a flne horse, but pale faced an-J weary from the exhausting strain »f work. The Duke af Connaught, bearded and soldierly, was beside him. and *hi Gorman Emperor, fiercely mustached. was on his right, well mounted, con scious of admiration and really impres sive.

The> kings of Norway. Denmark and Greece were familiar figures, often seen in the streets of London. The King of th<» Belgians was a stranger with an amia ble face, and the King of Bulgaria was not recognized easily, especially as he looked like a middle aged professor, de voted to his books and birds. Riding beside the King of the Belgians was th* Archduke Francis Ferdinand of Aus tria, a Crown Prince destined to make history in Southeastern Europe, yet ap pearing cold, reserved and incapable of exciting enthusiasm. German. Swedish, and British princes passed without ob servation, but the Prince Consort of tha Netherlands attracted attention as a fine rider. Honors Paid by Far East. There were dusky faces and Oriental c -it'imes in this brilliant retinue. Ja pan. China, the ottoman Empire. Egypt and Siam were represented by princes. and the cavalcade had fantastic glints of Oriental color. This splendid bodyguard from the rul ing families of Christendom was a won derful tribute to the monarch who had regained for isolated England the good will of other nations by his tact, sym pathy and transparent honesty. Behind the royal mourners were a dozen carriages with state liveries, the first two being glass coaches and the others dress landaus, all drawn by pairs of fine bay horses. Queen Alexandra was in th* first, and from force of habit she wa* graciously bowing and smiling. Queen Mary was more listless la the second. The heir to the throne was with her. Six carriages were occupied by royal mourners, and in the seventh were seated the Chinese princes and generals. Contlanrd on fourth pace. NEW SATURDAY TRAIN TO THE DERKSHIRES. Via N. T . N. H. & H.
