Subject* really:
among them, more .timorous than th
others, professed to know there was con
siderable sea to be encountered before
effecting a landing at the Battery. Such
*s these, however, were made to feel
cheap and small by the taunts of their
mor* hardy companions, who boasted of
what they -would do in case times of
*tress should be faced.
The final line that held the Osprey to
her pier was cast off. the last farewells
were wafted to th» Jjong Island hosts
across the bounding waters of the Sound
and the twin screws behind the sleek
•tern of the Osprey duff their keen
blades into the resisting water.
Within a few powerful revolutions the
boat was lost in the darkness. Dark
organs of murky water doused on those
who sat well forward on the deck,
brought oat Fcr«am« of mingled fright
And bravado, and a chill began to settle
en the spirits of those who had hitherto
scorned the puny waves.
Captain's Look Grimmer.
Captain Denken's face took on a
grimmer look. Now people began to ask
the captain just when they would reach
their quiet Tenderloin homes, and the
skipper ishook his head and -would give
no answer. Soon grumblings, sharp
and well defined, made themselves
heard throughout the length and
breadth of the Osprey, yet still the
captain maintained his foggy course.
Finally Captain Deiiken and Mate
Johnson decided that the sea was run
ning: too high for .their boat and deter
mined on a desperate course of action.
The boat's head was turned to the v.» st
ward, and after a hazardous passage
the craft turned toward the shelter af
forded by W«nt Farms Creek.
The waters "were more quiet there and
the captain pushed her nose up the
creek for fully a mile. He perhaps re
membered that it was by this same creek
that the British troops in the Revolu
«ion. under General Lord Howe,, were
baffled in their pursuit of General Wash
ington. It is within the realms of possi
bility' also that Captain Denken recalled
that the British war lords in England
had censured Lord Howe for not sailing
u;» these majestic waters of the creek
■ . nh his fleet, thus cutting ofT "Washing
ton's retreat. Be that as it may. Cap
tain Denkea determined to go as far as
ho could push the boat.
Just as . he was thanking his lucky
Man in thus getting out of the full
sweep of the wind and tides, there was
a sicken;a§- thud, and the Osprey bur
ied her Classic nose in si« feet of Bronx
Frantic whirls of the twin screws
tailed to budge her, and loud voices
from the inky blackness warned the
captain that somebody was getting an
sr:-. Denken blew his whistle lustily
for perhaps an hour, and finally a light
flickered oil the shore, and John "Wey
jnan. a watchman on a coal dock, made
his way to the shore. He shouted and
swung his lantern, and was met by a
wail from 130 voices calling for assist
ance ♦
Appeal to Police for Help.
Weyman saw that he could not reach
the stranded craft, so he hitched up a
horse and rig and started for the near
est telephone, a mile and a half distant.
He called up Police Headquarters, and
orders were sent to the Morrisania re
ecrves to go to the relief of the ship-
! -wrecked passengers. Shortly before 1
o'clock this morning the reserves, two
launches from the harbor police and half
a. dozen residents of the Hunt's Point
section were at the scene to give assist
ance. %
Many stout planks were procured and
theee were fashioned into .a sort of cor
duroy bridge, placed on the yielding mud
and run out toward the Osprey.
Then the work of rescue began in
"Women first, with children!" was the
I cry. and this praiseworthy course was
When all had been safely carried to
the inky blackness of the Hunt's Point
woods they stood in huddled groups and
muttered hard things about the Osprey,
her twin screws, her mate and even of
her skipper.
All the lit were taken care of by the
. police, who guided them through swamps
*nd eel grass until they struck the sub
way at Simpson street, when they v.ere
piled into trains and made their several
•nays home. Captain Denken and Mate
Johnson, ;«bl« bodi< <3 ' seamen, shouted
that they would go down with their ship,
If need in. and remained on board.
It is not known juat how deep the mud
is at that particular point, but more
then one among the erstwhile happy
passengers was heard to Fay that they

j the boat about until the propeller was

The Owl immediately began to drift,
and was driven before the cold wind to

■ Brother Island. Underwood tried re
peatedly to bring her up with the
anchor, but It was too light for such a
' wind, and the occupants of the launch,
; by this tim« chattering, wet through and
trembling for their safety, kept tooting
and waving all sorts of signals of dis

Sergeant Zole and his men. and in a Jiffy
they had the "owl" In tow and took her

was shipped.
As the police boat was re-entering the

hoard, and the launch Tip Pa was seen
drifting: rapidly into deep water and
deeper trouble near Rikcr's Island.
Paul Schroder, the owner, who lives at
; No. 42 Hallett street, Astoria, had been
j undecided at first whether he should brave
! the elements. The water looked calm,
however, and, taking along his wife and
two young- children, with another man,
! he started out.
A short distance from shore the engine
suddenly refused to work, and, to add to
his troubles, the storm broke.
Schroder gave all his attention to
keeping the boat from drifting out into
the Sound, and by determined effort
manage*d to get enough movement out of
j the engine to keep tho boat toward
' Riker's Island, where , the water was
t quieter than outside.
The Tip Pa was towed to North Beach,
where she was repaired and finally pro

The harbor police declared it was a
j mystery to them how some of the vent

disaster In the conditions that prevailed

Thinks Man Dead at Bellevue
Was Hit by Him in Flight.
A man who said ho was Joseph Zal
j tenas, a painter, of Xo. 344 East 61s:.
1 street, who was taken from a doctor's
office in East L'od street on Saturday
morning, where he had gone to be
treated, suffering from a bullet wound,
died yesterday afternoon in Bellevue
Hospital. He told the police that he
had been shot accidentally by a friend.
I,ast night Mounted Patrolman Will
iam H. Green, of the Jamaica station,
i viewed the body at the Morgue and said
he thought the man looked like the one
he had shot early Saturday morning
Just before dawn on Rocky Hill Road,
Jamaica. Green told a story of riding
his horse through the road, which goes
! through a wood and suddenly coining
j upon a man driving a buggy. Green
I galloped up, thinking the buggy needed
investigation. He called upon the man
Ito stop. The man replied with an oath.
I Green fired three shots to bring the
! man to a halt. The patrolman says he
j saw a revolvers glint and heard it click.
i He tired at the man point blank.
The wounded man. with a cry of "You
got me!" jumped from the i- buggy and
made' off Into the woods.
The policeman caught the horse, which
was later recognized as the property of
John Weeks, of Lynbrook. The buggy
is as yet unclaimed. In it were several

Bay Shore, Long Island. Juae s.— Robert
Reybert, son 01 Edgar Reybert, jr.. and
grandson of Captain Edgar Reybert. a
prominent Democratic politician of this
place, died late last night from injuries re
ceived as a result of being •struck by a
ejiecial train, west bound, bearing Presi

road and other officials. The child was
endeavoring to crops the track and was
Strode before the engineer could stop the

The child was badly bruised, but appar

the shock he n light live. He was removed

(From The Tribune Bureau.}
Washington, June 5.
dustrious writ«r versed in the gentle art of
muckraking: would do well to examine
carefully tho history of Senate Bill 8,530.
whereby poor Lo stood to lose no inconsid
erable part of his patrimony until lha
Indian Rights Association interfered. *md
by illuminating the dark spot in this piece
of legislation, what is commonly called
"The Joker." led the Commissioner of
Indian Affairs hurriedly to recall his in
dorsement, and bo. in the eleventh hour,
prevented the final enactment of tho meas
ure. It may be that some phaFe of pro
fessional ethics— lf muclrrakera know any
thing about ethics— forbids a union muck
raker from raking fellow members of the
craft, but If not. they will find an amplitude
of muck in the legislative history of this
Innocent looking little measure. Of course,
it is not the purpose of this dispatch to at
tribute any motive* to any one whatever,
merely "to set down incontrovertible facts
and to permit tho reader to draw his own
conclusions. To make this quite clear Jt
may be w«ll to Bet down first the dramatis
personse in the little comedy on which a
startled Indian < Commissioner rang down
the curtain when, with the aid of the
Indian Rights Association, he had seen tho
DRAMATIS PERSON'^.— The chief actor
in the Comedy was Robert Marion La Fol
lett». senior Senator from Wlpconsin, self
appointed censor of other people's morals
and Chautauqua lecturer. He is the author'
of the bill, and lie it was who. as a member
of th© Senate Committee on Indian Affair*-,
reported it to the Senate. He it was, too.
— but that i;) anotlie'r story, which shall
be told farther along. The first walking
gentleman to the Wisconsin star is A. W.
Sanborn, state Senator of Wisconsin, chief
political lieutenant of Senator T,o. Follette,
gruest m Washington of Mr. la Follette
while he was seeking to lobby tho bill
through Congress, and alleged holder of
certain powers of attorney for the Indians,
also prospective recipient of a largo con
tingent fee from the aforesaid Indians. The
innocent opponent of the Indians was the
Steams Lumber Company, of Odanali, Wi?.,
and last, but by BO means least, comes "the
goat," about to be ably played by the Chip
pewa tribe of Indians, which is claimant
to the chief property, some $1,000,000 worth
of lands, which are also claimed by th©
lumber company. As the goat does not ap
pear on the stage until the last act. juet
before which Indian Commissioner Valen
tine rang- down th© curtain, the Indians
have still to play their part.
THE PLOT.— Many years ago the United
States entered into a treaty with the
Chippewa Indians whereby the Indians sup
posed that they acquired title to certain
land In what is now the State of Wiscon
sin. Later Congress granted to the State
of Wisconsin in its enabling act as school
land every "section 16" within the terri
tory that comprises the state. • The State
of Wisconsin in turn granted these sec
tions within the area claimed by the Ind
ians to the Steams Lumber Company, but
v,hc-n that company undertook to cut the
white pine on these lands, described as the
finest white pine in the country, the Ind
ians naturally protested. An attempt was
made in the 67th Congress to settle the
case by legislation. That was resisted, and
in lieu thereof Francis E. Leupp, President
Roosevelt's Commissioner of Indian affairs,
caused a test case to be instituted in tho
United States courts, with tho United
States Attorney as counsel for the wards
of the nation. This was entirely satis
factory to the Indiana, find all went merry
as a marriage bell until Mr. Sanborn ap
peared on the scene. He says he became
attorney for the Indians. They say lip did j
not, but he appears to have secured some
sort of authority from some of the Ind- j
ians whereby he was to receive a 5 per
cent contingent fee. Then Mr. La Follette
introduced his bill, the last clause of which
provides, in effect, for the settlement out
of court of the-eases now pending. -Then
Mr. La Follette's political lieutenant, the
said A. W. Sanborn, became his guest in
Washington, and appeared before the Ind
ian Committee of the Senate to assure the ;
members that the bill was good. This
committee, of which Senator Clapp: is
chairman, authorized a favorable report,
which was made by Mr. La. Follette. -.
La Follette called his bill up on the floor
of the Senate it aroused the suspicion of

Customs Tribunal Starts with ,
225 Cases on Its Docket.
Washington, June 5. — With 225 cases on J
its docket as a starter, the latest federal •
court, the United States Court of Customs
Appeals, will begin business on Tuesday.
On that morning the five judges of the j
new court will begin to hear arguments in
cases on the calendar. It is expected that 1
the entire membership of the court will be I
present. It consists of Presiding Judge '
Robert M. Montgomery, of Michigan, and '
Associate Judges William H. Hunt, of [
Montana; James F. Smith, of California; ■
Orion M. Barber, of Vermont, and Marion |
l>e Vrfcie. of California.
Although there are 228 cases docketed in j
the court preparations for hearing, such as :
the filing of records and brief?, have made •
It possible for the clerk of the court. Ar- ,
thur B. Shelton, to place only 108 on the
calendar for argument at thjL£»time.
These cases have been gathered from all
over the country. Importers and the gov- >
ernment, when not satisfied with the de
cision of the Board of General Appraisers, .
had taken cases into the district courts, i
the circuit courts and the circuit courts ;
of appeals of the United States. By law j
these were transferred to the docket of the
Court of Customs Appeals. In addition, .
many cases have been brought direct from j
the Board of General Appraisers.
The cases to be heard include most of :
the varieties that arise out of the applica- ,
tion of tariff laws. Most of them relate to !
the collection of customs under the Ding
lay law, but many call for an interpreta- j
tion of the language in the Aldrich-Payne >
tariff act.
The term of the court which begins on !
Tuesday probably will run through June i
and Jury. The court may adjourn then
until September or October. No arrange
meats have been made for the handing :
down of decisions, although rules have been >
adopt"'! governing the general procedure
before i!i< court.

opportunity to exercise I discretion in the
matter. "No action wilbe taken settling
titles until the whole latter Is referred
back to Congress and "ongress connrms
the report of the Sectary of the In
terior," replied PenatorLa Toilette. Mr.
Scott .then withdrew 3s objection and
I the bill passed. Of the<reater portion of
the bill air. La Folletf « statement was
true. Of the Joker, the ast clause, it was
untrue. The action of entrees in taking
| the matter out of the kurts and assign
| ing three appraisers tc decide the case
I would be final. But, tha, Mr. La Follette
: probably forgot the provilons of the joker.
■ Then, again, lie may ftve thought Mr.
'. Scott unduly suspicious nd not deserving

j he may have thought ho« disappointed his
political lieutenant, Sanbrn, would have,
been. But, as has been $id, it is not tha

DC THE HOUSR— has been said.
Senator Clapp, of Minnebta, Is chairman
of the Senate Committee in Indian Affairs.
Representative Miller, of Minnesota, is a
member of th« Houso Connittec on Indian
Affairs. Mr. Miller used bbc a partner of
Senator Clapp'e son, and Senator La Fol*
lette and Senator Clapp We warm friends
now. They made a trlp^'ecently through
Minnesota — was It Wisconsin? — to
! gether. But be that a3it may, it was
j Representative- Miller, of Minnesota, who
! reported the La Follette 511 to the House.
• There appear to have beei some suspicious
I members of the House Ommittee on In
dian Affairs, for some on suggested that
before reporting the bill ftvorably the In
! dians should be consult*!. Accordingly
Mr. Sanborn was telegrajl'ied to. He re
plied: "On behalf of the Indians, I ap
prove lest clause Senate '.ill 5,835." The
record does not show wht suggested that
i the best method of consuUng the Indians
i was to telegraph Sanborn who had been
in Washington promoting the passage of
I the bill. That remains a dark secret of
I the Indian Committee. Tie Tndfans .say
j Sanborn had no authority to send that
: telegram. The records of he pending suit
j do not show that Sanborn has entered an
j appearance as counsel for he Indians, and
i up to that time United Sates Attorney
! George H. Gordon, counsel for the Indians
'■ by appointment Of the gcvernment, had
i never heard of Sanborn in connection with
the case. This does not iiean that San*
born may not have secured some contracts
1 from individual Indiana appointing him
| their attorney and guaranteeing the con
tingent fee already referral to. In any
event the committee «ceeped the assur
i ance of Sanborn and the bill was favorably
reported. Then it was that the Indian
Rights Association intervened, the Indian
I Commiseioner withdrew hl» Indorsement,
and as a result the bill is dead— for the
present at least. ■
| — On behalf of the comniitUes of the twtf
nousefi ti must be note*} that the Commis
Fioner of Tndian Affair?, Mr. Valentine, had j
; indorsed the La Follette bill. On behalf i-f j
; Mr. Valentine it must be said that it was
his predceea—r, Mr. I/eupp, who
in killing similar legislation in the 17th i
; Congress and caused the Institution of the |
judicial proceedings which were to deter- '
j mine the rights of the Indians. It was Mr. 1
j Leupf), too, by the way, vho, after tttis I
I same Sanborn bill had secured from the |
I Had River Indians a contract authorizing j
I him to represent them as attorney, refused j
I to approve the contract, thus rendering ii [
! %-oid. Due allowance must be made for the j
; fact that Commissioner Valentine was con
| fronted with tills situation when he was
j new in office, and that may be a mitigating
! circumstance, bat it is a fact, of course,
i tha* <"i Indian Commissioner, should b« over
: on the aiert — and especially sometimes.
RUNG DOWN. — As has been said, Com
j missioner Valentine's timely action in ad
| vising the House committee, that he with
drew ha" approval of the La Follette bill
operated to ring down the curtain on this j
j little comedy for tho present. The legal |
1 suit will, of course, proceed alter the regu- !
' : lar and tedious order of such proceedings, j
I and there may be no revival of the com
; edy that failed. But again there may be, .
' and it behooves the Indian Commissioner j
! and the Indian Rights Association, and any
i other friends poor Lo may have, to keep
! an eye open for the revival of an affair
I which at one time promised to have such v
I pleasant ending. ■ G. G. H.

If Divided Equally Every Inhabitant

Washington. June i. — Treasury officials
figure that if all the money in circula

The most flagrant easel brought to th«
attention of the courts yesterday were
those of Henry J. Struch, of No. 128 West
4?th street, and Carl S. Chase, of Auburn.
X. V., both of whom said they were stenog
raphers employed in the Immigration Bu
reau at Ellis Island. Magistrate Krotel, in
the night court, levied a fine of flO each,
with a warning.
According to the story told by James
Lumia, of No. 171 Sullivan street, he, hi 3
wife Grace, and his rilbther. Mrs. Annie
Lumia, boarded a Sixth avenue elevated
train at South Ferry last night, and had
not. been seated long when Struch and
Chase entered the car and took Beats next
to them. Soon after the train pulled out of
the station, according to I.umia, Struch
sat down on the ycunger Mrs. Lumia" a lap.
The action was so evidently intentional
that Lumla. remonstrated with Struch.
whereupon the latter swore at him.
Before the other passengers in the car
knew what was happening Lamia and the
two stenographers were rolling in a heap
on the floor of, the car, while tha women
yassengers screamed in fright. Several men
came to the assistance of Lumia. and by
the tims the train reached Battery Place
the two offenders were buried under a
dozen angry men. ;- ..■•■-
The guard of the car, seeing that there
might be a serious outcome to th© fight,
signalled to the motorman to blow his
whistle for the police. This brought Pa
trolmen McCauley and Fitzgerald, of the
Fulton street station, to the train on the
run, and they piled into th© car and be
Kan to pull the passengers from Struch
and Chase. The passengers were unani
mous in saying that the stenographers
ware responsible for the. outbreak, and the
two men were then arrested an* taken to
the Night Court, where Lumta . preferred
a charge of disorderly conduct . against
them. Both prisoners paid their fines from
a large roll of bills which each carried.
Detectives Arrest a Girl.
.Among the prisoners arraigned before
Magistrate Steinert in the Morrisania
court yestetrday morning was a girl who
gave her name as Violet Bennett, of Xo.
4430 Park avenue, The Bronx. She was!
arrested while in a southbound Westches- '
ter avenue car with three voting? men re- ;
turning from Clarson Point. ...
The girl and her escorts began to make,
a disturbance in the car by annoying the
other passengers, and were finally arrest
ed by Detective* Buckley, Weldon and
Boran, of the Morrisania station. In court
the three men gave their names as Samuel
Goodnough, of Xo. 812 Westchester ave
rue; Harold Conger, of No. 1287 Holland
Place, and James Cooney, of No. 2266
Bathgate avenue. They were each fined to
after being reprimanded. ,
.Magistrate O'Reilly in the Manhattan
avenue police court, Brooklyn, announced
his Intention to do all in bjs power to
stamp out rowdyism in the cars of that
borough. 'Like rank weeds, rowdyism
springs up with the opening of the sum
i mer season," said the magistrate, in hold
j ing William Vogel, of No. 192 Guernsey
street, "Williams-burg, and Samuel Gilfeld,
i of No. 94 East Broadway, Manhattan, in

| ing- a disturbance on cars of the Lorimer

It is tha phase that will follow capitalism. :
Just as capitalism followed feudalism.
Ever} pha^o of civilization ie a little
higher than the one before, a»i<l it has
