Leaves Wealthy Pittsburg Con
gregation Without a Minister.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Pittsburg. June 12.— The Rev. Dr. J.
Kinsey Smith, pastor for the last six
years at $7.s<Xt a year, read his resigna
tion and stepped from the pulpit of the
Shadyfiie Presbyterian Church here
this morning. The Shadyside church is
one of the most fashionable and exclu
sive in Pittsburgh, being known alsb as
"the church with no poor."
Dr. Smith, who came from Louisville
to Pittsburg, appears to have offended
some of his millionaire members, who,
it is said, insisted that he retire. His
■alary is guaranteed until January 1,
V.'li. He was to have resigned on June
2<>. and his move to-day left the congre
gation without a pastor. Another min
ister was hurriedly engaged to conduct
the evening services. Dr. Smith, in a
statement to-nig:ht. declares he is in no
way to blame for the conditions leading
to his resignation.
A Few Hurt on Lackawanna and
All Badly Scared.
| By Telegraph to The Tribune. ]
Dover. N. J.. June 12. — Passengers on
the Lackawanna limited, eastbound from
Buffalo, got a bad scare to-night, when
their train was sideswiped by a derailed
boxcar about a mile east of Mount Ar
The Buffalo train, due in Dover at
fc2s p. m.. was coursing along about
sixty miles an hour, when the engineer,
William Nichols, saw the derailed car so
lar over toward the eastbound track
that he knew he would hit it. He re
versed his engine and put on the emer
gency brakes, and the next moment he
had clambered out on the boiier. which
be straddled, holding fast to" the bell
stand. As the engine tore by the box
car the engine cab war stove in, while
the nine coaches had their steps
wrenched oft and great gashes torn
along their sides.
The passengers got a good shaking
and some received slight injuries from
broken glass, but none was seriously in
jured. The train went on its way after
a hall-hour delay.
Another Rowdy in Subway Frods
Opponent with a Pole.
A fishing party of six young men, who
had been at Sea bright. N. J., boarded a
Bronx Park subway train at Bowling
Green last evening and took seats near
Patrolman Baldeman. of the Morrisania
station, who was going to his station.
Three sat on one .side of the car and
three on the other.
At 149 th street and Third avenue, ac
cording to the story told by the patrol
man in the nigrht court, John Hoffman
threw his cap and hit Caspar J. Her
bert in the eye. Herbert threw the cap
l»>~)rv and. emrted ier J^cffmc^ *ho
slapped him in the face with a fish. ■
Herbert then took his fishing pole and |
started to prod Hoffman, and consider
able profanity resulted. Then the po
liceman arrested the warring pair and
also took Theodore Igeo, who aided in
the profanity.
"Even if you are 'subway rowdies,' "
said Magistrate Krotei, "you were only
scrapping among yourselves. Five dol
lars each." They paid up.
Mrs. T. C. Domer Lost Valuables
on Her Way Here.
Baltimore. June 12.— Baltimore de
tectives are searching for two men who,
they believe, robbed Mrs. T. C. Domer,
wife of the vice-president of the Sea
board Air Line, of valuables worth
(1,000 while she was on a train on her
way from Washington to New York
The men. according to advices, after
having robbed Mrs. Domer left the train
at Trenton. N. J.. and boarded another,
bound south, immediately afterward.
On this train was George Froehlich. of
this city, who was returning from New-
York. Upon his arrival here he re
portod to the police that he, had been
robbed of a valuable gold watch, either
in the tunnel through which the train
entered Baltimore or at the station as
he* was leaving the train, when two men
Jostled him.
Other robberies Of a like character
have lately been reported to the police,
and it is said here that the detectives of
Philadelphia, Washington and New Jer

Lad of Six Completes Fourth
Solitary Trip Across Ocean.
Master Charles Clinton Gladwin, jr.,
six years old, of No. 496 Third avenue,
arrived here yesterday from Southamp

This is his fourth trip across the Atlan
tic alon*. His mother died when he was
five months old. and after caring: for him
until he was two years old his father
accepted an offer from his sister in Lon

The child was content to live with his
aunt, but he sometimes wanted to visit
his -father and wasn't afraid to come
over alone to sco him. In the care of
the stewardesses he returned on the
White Star liner Cedric in June. 1906.

There is only one thing- that has a
chance of keeping Hamilton from start
ing- for Philadelphia this morning at 7
o'clock, and that is the weather, and the
spectators who saw him fly around Gov
ernor's Island last evening in the driz
zling fog seemed to think that it would
have to be pretty bad weather at that.
Hamilton said last night that all the
weather indications and reports were
favorable, and there was hardly a doubt
that he would begin the big test.
He is going to add one precaution to
his ordinary flying practice. He will
wrap around his body three inflated rub
ber tubes, probably the inner tubes of
automobile tires, to keep him afloat if
he should have the bad luck to drop into
the water anywhere between here and
His schedule calls for an ascent from
Governor's Island this morning at 7
o'clock, and a flight to Philadelphia and
return, with unlimited stopover priv
ileges, except that he must complete the
entire trip inside of twenty-four hours.
But Hamilton does not intend to avail
himself of any stopover privileges, and
he figures that he will make the trip to
the Pennsylvania town in two hours.
Returning, he figures to leave there some
time before 2 o'clock in the afternoon
and sail into sight of Manhattan Island
about 4 o'clock.
As he puts it himself, he has no par
ticular friends between New York and
Philadelphia; so why stop?
After Paulhan's Record.
More than that, however, Hamilton
has a little notion to make one M. Paul
han. of Paris, France, sit up and take
notice, by beating said Paulhan's con
tinued flight distance record on the re
turn trip.
If the motor is going all right and no
accident intervenes Hamilton will very
HJcety "scorn' Governor's- IstnHcT when he
comes back from Philadelphia. Instead
or landing there it is expected he will
turn up the Hudson River and sail up
to ..the end of Manhattan Island and
keep sailing until he has tacked on to
the distance from Philadelphia a suffi
cient number of miles to surpass Paul
han's record of I'l7 miles.
Just where this modest ambition will
carry him is uncertain. He will have
made something more than ninety miles
if he flies back to Manhattan from Phil
adelphia in one continued flight. To
beat the record he might tack on thirt.y
miles by going around Manhattan Isl
and and then out over Brooklyn, or he
might elect to go up the river and ex
plore that treacherous current of air
around Storm King.
With Hamilton seated on a machine
that is working perfectly 1 , and in a mood
for record breaking, there is no telling
what he might do, because last week he
showed such wonderful control and
flying ability and such original ideas as
to the art of flying that any forecast on
his conduct when out to break a record
would be useless.
Without the incentive of a record,
without even the incentive of a prize or
compensation for his work, he has made
those who have seen him acknowledge
him a master of the flying game, and
to-day he will be out for both record
and prize.
Rain DidrTt Bother Him.
Rain didn't stop Hamilton last even
ing, when he wanted to give his aero
plane a short test for the big flight this
morning, and when the rain noted that
the little red-haired aviator wasn't at
all bluffed by its antics it quit pouring,
and drizzled in a half-hearted sort of
way while the man-bird went up, cir
cled Governor's Island half a dozen
times, and made a perfect descent that
landed him with his machine at the flap
of his tent.
While the mechanics were tinkering
with the 'plane it rained hard. When
they finally wheeled it out of the tent,
at about 6 o'clock, it rained just as hard,
and while a dozen men pushed the ma
chine a quarter of a mil* 1 over the bog-gy
sand from -the tent it rained still harder.
"You cant stop this fellow," said the
crowd, and then the rain gave up in
disgust, and in a few minutes more
Hamilton shot up through the dwindling
shower and rewarded the crowd of some
five hundred spectators with a flight of
aii even ten minutes.
No hair-raising dips and glides last
night, however, but all straight, plain
sailing, with Hamilton's ear straining
to catch the reports of his engine and
his eye examining every brace, cord
and strut to see that everything was in
good working order
When he finally landed, with a sweep
ing dip that brought him right to the
front of his tent, it was found that a
brace wire running to the front landing
wheel had loosened up. but otherwise
thing's were in goo<l condition, and the
ship was pushed into th*e tent to await
the big test of to-day.
[By Teleer ll l to The Tribunal .
Philadelphia, June — If the prognos
tications of the local weather man prove
correct, the flight of Hamilton from New
York to Philadelphia to-morrow will be
favored by fine weather. Clear skies and
a very ght westerly wind are promised.
Great interest is manifested by Phila
delphians in the flight and great masses
of people will occupy points of vantage
on roof tops and other places where a

[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Oklahoma City, Okla.. June 12.— 1n a
wild automobile ride in the midnight
hours last night the seal of the State of
Oklahoma was brought from Guthrie to
Oklahoma City by Governor Haskell's
private secretary, following the an
nouncement that the latter city had won
the state capital fight by a large major

The seal was removed from the Secre

Governor Haskell has the proclama

hooted and stoned from the streets of
Guthrie last night when she cheered for
Oklahoma City. She was forced to flee
to the Governor's rooms in the Royal
Hotel with a male companion. She
came to Oklahoma City on tbe first train
out of Guthrie.
A conference of the state officials was
under way late to-night relative to the
immediate removal of the capital to
Oklahoma City. Governor Haskell,
Lieutenant Governor Bellamy, William
Cross, Secretary- of State; M. E. Trapp,
State Auditor; C L. Daugherty, State
Labor Commissioner: Justice Samuel
Hayes, of the state Supreme Court, and
other officials took part. Chief Justice
Jesse J. Dunn, of the state Supreme
Court, and Attorney General Charles
West arrived at 9 o'clock to-night.
Governor Haskell was in Tulsa when
he received word that a temporary re
straining order had been issued in Guth
rie. Possession of the state seal meant
the first s-tep for victory. At 1 o'clock
an automobile left a garage in Oklahoma
City with one passenger, W. B. An

made to Guthrie and return in a little
more than two hours in the darkness.

The auto was muffled as it made its
race through the streets of Guthrie to
the Capitol offices. It took only a few
minutes to obtain the seal, and the ride
to Oklahoma City was begun.
The residents of Guthrie slept. Only
a few hours before the streets were
thronged with people who received the
unwelcome news that Oklahoma City
had >yon and Guthrie had lost, after the
Capitol had been twice voted to Okla

territorial legislatures in the last
twenty-one years.
Guthries opposition to the removal of

that Guthrie remain thr capital until

Coroner Says Mrs. Smollen Died
from Natural Causes.
Prostrated with grief over the death
of his daughter, Mrs. Joseph Smollen, G.
Howland Leavitt. of Bayside. Long
Island, is under the care of physicians,
and it was said last night that his con
} dition was critical.
The autopsy performed by Dr. T. D.
Lehane, Coroner Feinberg's physician,
on the body of Mrs. Smollen yesterday
morning satisfied the authorities that
she died from natural causes.
The funeral services will be held this
afternoon at 3:3<> o'clock, and burial
will be in the Flushing cemetery. It is
understood that Joseph Smollen, the for
mer Leavitt chauffeur, with whom the
dead girl eloped last January, and from
whom she separated three months later,
will attend the funeral.
Coroner Feinberg said yesterday that
he intended to summon the nurse, Cath
erine McKenna, who was with Mrs.
Smollen while she was ill in this city,
and question her, but did not expect that
her testimony would alter the opinion of
the case he now holds. Dr. Leliane
granted a certificate of burial to the
family last night.
Bay State Judge Says It Is In
centive to Divorce.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune]
Boston. June 12.— With the month of
the June bride in full swing there comes
a word of warning on the spread of the
divorce evil from Judge William Cush
ing Wait, one of the members of the
Superior Court of Massachusetts, the
tribunal before whioh divorce cases are
tried in this state.
"As for contributory reasons for
divorce, " Jude Wait says. 'I might men
tion the elaborate, not to say elaborated,
stories published in the newspapers re
garding enormous sums of money paid
for alimony. Without passing criticism,
but simply stating what I think t> !<e
obvious conditions, I may say that I
think that such liberal alimony is an in
centtvc to seek divorce. If the courts
were less liberal ln the awarding of ali
mony it might be that some of these
persons born in poverty and raised to
wealth by reason of marriage might not
be so anxious to sever the tie that bound
them to the one from whom they re
ceived an income.
"Granting that avarice may lead some
persons to marry another of the opposite
sex because of money and luxury, the
attitude of some of our courts in grant
ing an extravagant alimony seems to
put a i>:vmium on divorce for such ava
llulOlM persons."

Japanese Prince Gets Important
Dispatches at Boston.
Boston. June 12. — Prince and Princess
Fushimi of Japan received important
dispatches from home on their arrival
in Boston to-day, and announced that
they must cut their visit short in this
country. On leaving Boston on Tues

Falls and Chicago will be cancelled.
The nature of the dispatch which calls

Collision Was Unavoidable.
After sending the injured to the hos
pital Patrolman Murphy made an in
vestigation of the accident, in an effort
to fix the blame for the collision. The
mqturman of the Madison avenue car
said that he was not to blame, as tl:e
rear wheels of the taxicab swung wide
and threw the rear of the ma<-hine di
rectly in the path of his car. The skid
ding of the taxicab was so sudden that
the moturman had no time to prevent
the crash, he said, although he applied
his brakes with all his strength. Albert
did not sound his horn as he turned
from 78th street into Park averr.ie. ac
cording to the motorman.
The Madison avenue car was well
filled with passengers, and many of
them were slightly injured by broken
glass and were thrown from their seats
because of the sudden stopping of their
car. They all expressed surprise at the
distance the taxicab had been hurled by
the force of the collision, and accord

station the trolley car must hav^ been
running at great speed. It was more
than fifteen minutes before the trolley
tracks were cleared of the wreckage.
No arrests were made, although the
police took the names of the motorman
and conductor of the Madison avenue

Casey and the conductor Peter Coyle.

the shock so prostrated both women that
they had to be treated by the surgeona
