FORDHAM GIVES DEGREES
Bar More Potent than Press, Mc-
Adoo Tells Law Graduates.
The third annual commencement of the
Fordham University Law School was held.
!n the theatre of the university at Fordham
yesterday afternoon. Thirty-two young
wen received the d«sre* of Bachelor of
Laws. Two of them, William Hayes and
Anhur Dl Fisher, graduated summa cum
1«-ide William McAdoo, former Police
Commissioner, delivered the address to the
graduate?, speaking at length on lawyers
and newspaper men. Regarding the former
he said:
"I am against the prostitution . of . th«
profession which places It in a position
which would lead the public mind to as
sume that It was an enemy, of the. public
conscience. The legal profession runs
counter to the public conscience by its pro
fessional conservatism. This is unfortu
nate, and If not. arrested will endanger the.
whole fabric of government and society.
"I believe that for one -judge who is
s-werved hv political or other Influences
tVier* are one hundred who could not be
swerved from administering Justlr^as the
laws ait. them and their consciences dic
tate. ........ . .. -, ,~ *
"The bar to-day has more influence than
the press. We are told in the newspapers
that public speaking has gone into disuse:
on the contrary. th» influence, of the public
sp*"*.k«>r is far in excess Of the press." •
Mr. McAdoo went on to pay that the
waning power of the press was due to what
he called it« Impersonality. People, 'he
said, would b» more. interested If they knew
v.hr. wrote tn* leading articles. In his
opinion, the press: was more potent in the
days of Greeiey. Dana and Raymond.
The Rev. Panl-1 J. Qulnn. president of
the university, congratulated the rrad
yatine class and declared that the school
would never be commercialized.
Paul Fuller, Ll* D- dean of the Law
School, conterred the degrees. Many mem
bers of the judiciary and legal profession
were present, including Supreme Court
Justice peter A. Hendrick. ex -Corporation
Counsel John J. Pelany and Geors* Gordon
Eattle, former Assistant District Attorney.
FiSHER-HANSEN LOSES
Court Ruling Ends Effort to Get
$2,500 Annuity.
Through a decision handed doxm yester
day t9 Justice Erianger. Carl Fisher-Han
sen, the la-wyer, ■woo recently served a sen
tence of ore yeer for subornation of per
jury, •< C v ; the suit he brought against hi*

Gordon Battle. the lawyer. m ho were named
as trustees of a fund wher*ty th© dis

mediately after he had served his prison
sentence.
The former lawyer asked permission to
discontinue hit suit against his wife and
the two trustee? for $125,000 because of their
failure to pay him the annuity promised.
The defendants, in their answer to this
charge, said that Hansen "had falted to live
up to hi* part of the agreement. in that he.
continued to live in this "country. Justice
Erlanjrer ruled that the suit be dropped,
but added a provision that it tras to be dis
continued only if the petitioner entered Into
a stipulation to brine no other elmflar ac
tion against the dei>nflants.
Mr. Beard and Mr. Battle opposed the
discontinuance of Haneen's suit, on the
ground that the trustees wished to have It
definitely determined that the plaintiff could
not harass them again. By the < >' Jrt ' '
ruling Haneen is prohibited from Starting
a similar action again.

HAPPY DAY AT PRINCETON
Reunion, Presentation and Pa
rade Attended by 10,000.
Princeton, K. J., June IL-Prineeton Unl
versltj-s reunion flay was one of the most
joyous in years, fully five thousand gradu
ates gathering for the celebration. A feature
of. the day's programme was the presenta
tion of a gold vase to Moses Taylor Tine
In recognition of his twenty-nve years' ser
vice as a trustee. President Woodrow "Wil
son made th« presentation speech, being
introduced by Charles Scrlbner. of New
York, chairman of the graduate council.
The. words of gratitude and thanks for Mr.
Pyne's services to the university by Presi
dent "Wilson were regarded as evidence Of
the unification of Princeton"* alumni.
In introducing President Wilson, Mr.
Scrlbner said:
"We have come before Old North to
honor a fellow alumnus for twenty-five
year* of faithful service, to the university.
Princeton takes great pride in the loyalty
of her alumni and we wish Mr. Pyne to
know. that his place is secure in the hearts
of Princeton men always."
When President Wilson b*gan to speak
a "locomotive" cheer was given htm and
the gold vafee •was presented to Mr. Pyne.
'Mr. Pyne." said President Wilson. "I
have the pleasure and the. honor to-day to
•peak as the representative of a great body
of our fellow alumni who are grateful to
y6u ' for the extraordinary services- you
have rendered the university we all love.
For twenty-five years you have served her
with a devotion and generosity beyond all
praise, through dark days and bright. ■
"Your chief thought has always seemed
*o be of her. ant! it has been In Be Smell
part through the stimulation of your ex
ample that hundreds of ' Princeton man
have learned how to translate their affec
tion Into action. This vase Is in Itself very
beautiful; bat what It signifies is much
more Beautiful and could hardly be em
bodied in any possible form by the art df
the Mlverfcmlth. It is a tribute of honor,
of slneer* admn-9ti6n and of d^ep pfrsonal
affection. May it always serve to rwdnlnd
you of that best thing a man may learn
♦M* Sid* the grave— th* homage or his
fellows. of his comrades and equals for nls
devotion and service."
Mr Pyn* «aJd in reply:
"It is with a full heart that I thank you
for thi# evidence of appreciation. When I
think of the distinguished man with whom
I have been associated !n the la*rt twenty
flve years— l>r. MeO©»h C. C. Cuyler,
Grover Cleveland and others on the board
of trustees— l wonder -what I have done to
merit this gratitude. I tak» It to mean,
however, that you approve of my actions
ir. the last twenty-five years as a member
6r the board, and I shall do all in my power
to maintain your affection."
After the exercises Karl Ijanglotz, com
poser of "Old Nassau," led the assembled
crowd of mr>re than ten thousand persons in
the song, and President Wilson and Mr.
Pyne <h%n headed the procession to univer
sity field for the baseball game -with Yale.
As they passc-d the- stand the crowd rose
and cheered loudly.
Several noted athletes carried the cham
pionship banners of their football and base
ball teams. John Dewitt, Arthur Poe. Will
iam Edwards, Edward Harlsn and other
famous athletes being In line. Then came
the various classes in costume. A live
camel and several floats gave a circus touch
to the long line. When Princeton won the
baseball game the entire gathering of
graduates Joined in the entice of the cele
bration.
NEW SWIMMING BATH OPENED
Brooklyn People See Athletic Exhi
bition in Big Pool.
The new public bath at President street
and Fourth avenue, Brooklyn, was formal
ly opened by Borough President Steers last
night. It cost, the city $168,000. "Die chief
feature is a rwimrning pool, <» feet long
by 40 broad, and in depth' from SH to 6^
feet Odiva, the Samoan swimmer,: who
swam ill it last night, declares that it is
one of the finest she has seen.
A few months and th*>r» will be no more
srwimmlng pool, however, for the subway
engineers who have charge of the build
ing of the Fourth avenue subway have de
termined to build a station at President
street. The station will cut out the pumps
that feed the pool, and th« coalbln of the
bath as well, and will seriously cripple
the building. They have been asked to
spare the expensive structure, but have
declined, and the result will be that Brook
lyn's finest bathhouse will become perhaps
Its poorest, and the city will lose many
thousands of dollars invested in the. prop

they were engaged in a press agent "stunt*

But with- all his ability to entertain, he
could not keep the. deputy surveyor inter
ested long enough to get off the Cunard
pier with the fourteen pieces of jewelry.
When O'Connor s&w the declaration,
calling for goods valued at $200, the maxi
mum value permitted by the government
to enter duty free, a search was decided
on. The first discovery was a five-karat
diamond on the end of a gold stickpin.
Then came a glittering array of rings and

Hotchkiss Accuses Dutchess Fire
Insurance Company.
Poughkeepsle, fC T Tun* 11.— Charges of
mismanagement against the Dutches? Fire

to6k over the old Dutch ess Tngnrance Com
pany, were received here to-day from
Superintendent Hotchkiss of the State De
partment of Insurance by District Attorney
Mack, who will prissnt them to fh* grand
Jury. The Superintendent's action is sup
plementary to his former recommendation
that the resignation of President Lewis H.
Vail be received, a bint which th» directors
of the company refused to take.
Accompanying Mr. Hotchkis6's letter mil
the report of his examiners, Leon B. Senior
and John J.». Tralnor. Tn closing th* exam
iners state:
"The executive management of this com
pany, as represented by Its president, de
serves criticism for the manner in which
it has carried out the reinsurance contract
with the old company; for the misrepre
sentations it has made to the supervising
department of this and other states as to
the liabilities ef th* corporation, an<i for
th* questionable methods adopted to re
duce its agents' balances in the quarterly
and annual statement* of the department."
District Attorney Mack had nothing to
say to-night further than that he would
present the charges to the grand jury, and
that the only persons involved were those
in charge of the active administration of
the company. President Vail refused to
give an interview.
GAS Dl H ALLEY'S COMET'S TAJtL
Carbon Mormxid* 1 Strongest Constitu
ent, Ss-ys Dr. Lowell.
Flagstaff. Ariz.. June 11. -Following hi*
recent statement that astronomical investi
gatkMU carried on by him her<? had devel
oped hypotheses antagonistic tn the former
theory as to the' composition of comets'
tails, Dr. Percival Lowell, head of Lowell
Observatory, issued a supplemental bulletin
last night in which he Bay* that carbon
monoxide is the strongest constituent In
th" appends*" of Halley'p wanderer. He
says:
"Lowell Observatory spectograms indicate
that th« strongest and hitherto unidentified
spectral bands in the tail of Bailey's comet
coincide with the spectral bands of carbon
monoxide found by Fowler for that gas
under very low pressure In the laboratory.
"Just such a condition of low pressure
must exist in a comet's tall, and therefore
It is by these bands that carbon monoxide
would reveal Its presence. This spectrum
of the gas Is shown by gentle electric dis
charges taking place under pressure of
about 1-100,000 of an atmosphere/

ARMY AND NAVY NOTES
General Duvail Rebukes Chap
::."•; lain Dallam. -;^
{From The Tribune Bureau.)
Washington, June 11.
CRITICISED HIS SUPERIOR. •- Chap
lain J. E. Dallam, 12th Infantry, has been
subjected to a scathing rebuke by Major
General W. p. Duvall, in command in the
Philippines. Chaplain Dallam was recent- j
ly reported to the War Department be- <
cause lie • had "no. church." having an
n6unced that lie could not continue •••
recognize the creed of the Episcopal ;
Church, to which he was accredited upon
his appointment. It was intimated to
Chaplain Dallam that ,he must become a
regularly ordained minister- or he would be
regarded as lacking usefulness as a chap- j
lain. He accordingly Joined th* Uni- ,
tarian Church. It remained an unan- 1
swered question what the military author
ities could have done if he persisted in his
tindenomlnatlonallsm. The present diffi
culty grows out of some uncomplimentary
allusions Chaplain Dallam made to a
brother officer of the regiment. Captain
F. D. "Wlckham. That officer was In the
neighborhood of the Quarters of Lieutenant
Colonel R. F. Ames. 12th Infantry, at the
time. Lieutenant .Tanney*. another officer of
the regiment, phot and killed himself follow
ing a dinner at the Ames quarters. Chap
lain Dallam thought that Captain Wick
ham acted in a manner TThlch deserved j
criticism, and he expressed his opinion in j
the presence of junior officer* of the com- j
mand. The reginiental commander, Colonel !
C. A Williams, who has been in some diffi
culty himself, called, on Chaplain Dallam \
for a retraction, whereupon the. chaplain |
wrote a formal letter declining to make
reparation and referring to Captain Wick- j
ham's alleged avoidance of responsibility
as "heartless and cowardly." Thia led to
th- trial of Chaplain Dallam and his sen
tence to a reprimand by the reviewing
authorities. General Duvall, in carrying
out the sentence, said:
"It is very clear that Chaplain Da-Ham
sought to convey an expression of cen
sure in using he word* be did in address
ing his superior officer, Captain TVickham.
The fact that the conduct of Captain
Wickham which it pleased Chaplain Dal
lam to disapprove in no*is» concerned
the latter, whose status in the matter was
that of a husybodr, and that his c*nsur«
.was entirely gTatultiou* ana was conveyed
to Captain Wickham in the presence of his
juniors naturally aggravates the case.
Unfortunately the spirit of . broad Chris
tianity, of -which Chaplain Dallam should !
be an .exponent, has not prevented him I
from passing judgment In haste and with !
but little consideration on a fellow officer,
his superior In rank, or later, after tlttl*
for mature thought, from decliniingf to
Withdraw that judgment even when ad
vised to do so by his regimental com- i
mander. Chaplain Dallam has profited j
little by his five years' experience in the
military service in so far as understand*
ing his place in the army, and apparently
i fails to realize that there- Is nothing in the j
I position of the chaplain which absolves '
him from the disciplinary requirements
I which are imposed upon all officers. Chap- I
lain Dallam is released from err«at and !
restored to duty."
Chaplain Dallam is well known in P!«tr«
| burg. N. V . having been on duty with his
regiment at th« neighboring army post.

GEN. MILLER BLAMES ENEMIES
Denies That He Paid Wife $1,000,000
—No Separation, He Says.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Philadelphia. June 11.— General Franklin
Miller, the Standard Oil millionaire. a*
feerted to-day that despite the fact that he
had sued his wife for a divorce, there was
never a separation between them. He de
clared that the trouble between himself and
his wife was the result of malicious stories
told by enemies in Franklin, Perm., and
New York, who were inspired by a desire to
reap pecuniary pain by creating trouble
between himself and his wife.
"The divorce proceedings nave been "With
drawn by both sides, and we are happily
united agmin." Said Genial Miller. "It is
not" true that Mr*.' Miller returned to
Franklin with me. yesterday, but she would
have done po l>"d ?h« been able. A* a re
••ilt of th- cruel and slanderous statements
that have been made about her. Mrs. Miller
ha* beer, In a state of nervous collapse
since early In the rear, and I have been at
her bedside much of the time for the last
few weeks. ' •
General Miller refused to make known his
wife"s whereabouts. The published state
ment that he had paid his wife $1,000,000 to
return to him was emphatically denied by
General Miller.

ington B. Valentine, hear! of the flrrn of Val
