Republican Senators Appoint
Committee to Meet the
3overnor To-day.
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- !
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

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
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.

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
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

ously, calling attention to the request by
an acting deputy surveyor that Mr. Rol

called the situation unfortunate, but
said that the facts were as stated in the

eral practice," counsel for th«- defence

! 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.

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
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

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

Kenneth F. Sutherland, chief clerk of

of Coney Island, was instantly killed
last night in attempting to alight from
a West End train at the Bay ?>r>th street

Sutherland left his home, at No. 2J15

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.

Minus a Tail — Visible to the
Naked Eye.
Yerkes Observatory, Williams Bay.
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."

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

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-

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
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
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

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

the captains of Yeomen of the Guard and

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
