Two Committees to Co-operate
with Receivers for Prompt
While the meetings of creditor?'
eommittee? and conference? of the re?
ceivers and counsel for the IL B. Claflin ,
Company were in propres? here yester?
day, the disastrous effect of the big
failure throughout the country was be?
ing emphasized by the application for
receivers for several more of the Claflin
retail ?tores in other citie?.
Five of the string of twenty-seven
retail atores throughout the other
states applied for receivers soon after
the receivership for the parent com?
pany became known, and at least seven
more followed suit yesterday.
With the added information, which
representatives of the creditors had
here yesterday, it was said that twenty
of the retail atores were expected to go
into the hands of receiver? within the
next few days.
Receivers for Seven More Store?.
The announcement that receiver? had
been named for the large Cincinnati
firm of the George W. McAlpin Com?
pany, as well as The Fair Company, of
that city, was considered the moat in-1
dicative of the way the others would
go. The other stores which applied for !
receivers yesterday were:
The Lion Drygoods Company, Toledo, i
one of the largest department stores ;
there; the Root Drygoods Company, of j
Terr? Haute, Ind.; the Castner-Knott \
Drygoods Company, of Nashville; the I
Joslin Drygoods Company, of Denver, j
and the Jones Store Company, in Kan- I
It was reported that the Macdougale ,
?*? Southwick Company, of Seattle, and ,
J. B. Wnite ?t Co., of Augusta, had !
taken almilaT action. In every in- ,
?t?nce it waa announced that the ap- '
plication for receivers was a friendly '
action for the protection of each com- '
pany's interests pending the reorgani?
zation of the parent company here, the
outside firms continuing business in
the mean time.
Yesterday was a day of conferences
among the interested parties here,
without any definite announcement as
to future plans for reorganization of
the Claflin company or along other
line?. Generally there seemed to be a
hopeful attitude on the part of the
banker and merchandise creditors that
the parent concern would eventually
meet most of ita obligations.
Creditor? to Co-operate.
Counsel for the bankers' committee,
representing the noteholders, and for
the merchandise creditors' committee
met during the day, and afterward an?
nounced that these committee? would
co-operate "toward a prompt reorgani
There appeared to be some solici?
tude, however, on the part of aome of
the lawyers interested in regard to the
?tatements in some of the papers that
the Claflin firm would pay dollar for
dollar. It was pointed out that auch
reports might be raising the hopes of
creditors prematurely, and while it was
believed that a reorganization scheme
would be worked out that would cover
most of the indebtedness, it was said
that there was no way of accurately
anticipating the condition of the Claflin
concern at this time.
The old and tried name of the Claflin
firm was looked upon as Al security by
many of the bankers, even when mat?
ters recently became critical. It was
said that some of the bankers who were
brought into the crisis, after looking
over the situation, were inclined to

Fonda and was arraigned before Jus?
tice Hubbard in Fonda to-night
! charged with murder for the killing ol
| John Barrett, a wealthy Palatine
. farmer and neighbor of Potter, last
The arrest followed a confession by
? one of Potter's farmhands, Lewis M.
, Roach, who ?aid that, accompanied by
I Potter, he went to the Barrett home
and shot Barrett at the instigation of
Potter because of a dispute as to water
Potter pleaded not guilty to the
charge. He declared that Roach is suf?
fering from a hallucination and he
blames the pressure put on his farm

Potter's father-in-law, Andrew J
Nellis, of Albany, widely known as a
i lawyer in this part of the state, went

j immediate hearing and this was set for
to-morrow morning. Nellis declared
?he was prepared to show through sev
eral witnesses every movement of his

For months the murder of Bar-ett
had furnished a puzzle which the au

I Potter ai.d Roach, as the story ran,
went to the Barrett home together on
the night in question. Roach entered
the house by one door and Potter by
another. As they entered Kate Bar?
rett, a daughter of the farmer, sat
reading in the dining room, and Roach
struck her over the head with a stir-k
of firewood, rendering her unconscious.
When the farmer, aroused from sleep
upstairs, came below to ascertain the

Never Forgiven for Blows
to Family Pride.
For the third tim? in six years, and
fer the fourth time in his life, Will?
iam Copcland Rhinelander, son of the
late William Rhinelander and the late
Mrs. Matilda Cruger Oakley Rhine?
lander, has been disinherited. Cut off
by his father, who left an estate valued
at $50,000,000, with an income of $5,000
a year, and again cut off with $1,000
by his mother, who died last February,
the will of Miss Serena Rhinelander,
vn aunt of William C. Rhinelander,
filed in the Surrogates' Court yester?
day, gave two-fifths of the residue of
her estate to T. Oakley Rhinelander
and Philip Rhinelander, brothers of
the much disinherited man, and did not
even mention the other nephew.
The common reason that prompted
the action of father, mother and aunt
were '.aie two distasteful marriages
contracted b, William C, Rhinelander,
first marrying a servant of the family
and later taking a? his second wife a
Ba:k in 1378. for one of these of?
fence? against the family pride and
after hia first marriage, the luckless
one was disinherited by his grand?
father, William C. Rhinelamler, for
whom he was named, who cut him off
from a fortune of $1,000,000.
Miss Rhinelander, who died on June
11 at 14 Washington Square North, the
family homestead, left $50,000 each to
the Church of the Ascension and St.
James's Church, $50,000 to the Chil
. i ei?'? Aid Society and $10,000 to the
New York Eye and Lar Infirmary. The
? bequest? to the churches are to be used

her sister. The bequest to the Chil?

1 nephews, is to have the use of the fam?
ily hcu?" for life, some family silver
land one-fifth of the residue of the
' estate. He also receives a collection
o?' portrait? of Mia? Rhinelandcr's
The other four-fifth? of the residue,
besides silver and other personal be?
longings, are left to Philip Rhineland?
er, William Rhinelander Stewart anil

Mary Stcwirt With? rboe, niece.
Maud Vite McKmi receives $5,000,
James l*. Burrell I5.0VU and fourteen
servants and other employes receive
an aggregate of $8,750, while Catherine
Boyee, an..?her ?errant, will have an
annuity of $100 for life.
William Copelnnd Rhinelander. the
much disinherited, is now living in
Schenectady. His first narria?*? ?vas
in 1876, when he took as his wife
Margaret McOinnis, a servant in the
household of his parents. A month
later his fathe* made a will disinherit?
ing him. Kven to the time of his
death, the father never became reci -
ciled to his son, but he did add a codi?
cil to his will, directing the executors
to pay him $5,000 a year, on condition
that the ?on remain out of New York.
The greater part of the estate went to
the other sons, T. Oakley Rhinelander
and Philip Rhinelander
Then, in 1897, the son married Juli?
ette Kathie?- Maier, a waitress in a
?Jd st. restaurant.
One of the spectacular incident? in
the life of Rhinelander was his shoot?
ing of John Prake, hi? father'? at?
torney, in 1884. He was not prose?
cuted. Rhinlander sued to break hi?
father's will on the ground that the
latter was not of sound mind, but the
court upheld th? will. '

OLD ST. JOHN'S CHAPEL
GETS NEW LEASE OF LIFE
Vestry of Trinity Agrees to Tentative Plan to Hold Reli?
gious Services There for Two Years at Least-Historical
Societies Must Arrange Preservation Scheme.
Plans which will mean the preserva?
tion for at least two years of old St
John's Chapel, in Varies* st.. have been
tentatively agreed to by the vestry of
Trinity Church, represented by Colonel
William J?y. ?"?? George McAneny,
1 ie?,ident of the Board of Aldermen, a?
chairman of tha committee on city
plan of the Board of Estimate. It i?
i proposed that Trinity Corporation un?
dertake to mai.itain the chapel for re?
ligious purposes for at least two years
from July 1.
It is hoped that before the end of
that period the historical societies in?
terested in the permanent preservation
cf the structure will have been able
to work out some plan to that end. If
net, Trini'y will be at liberty to dis
i pose of the property as it see? fit.
I The city, as it* part of the bargain,
will put in the necessary piers to hold
the portico of the structure up over
the Seventh av. subway, at a cost of
about $7,000. The first offer of the city
was to do this if Trinity, or any other
loih. would agree to maintain the
church for. public purposes in per?
Tnnitv ?hiily refused to do this. The
plans for the widening of Varick ?t.
as the extension of Seventh av. have
been made so an to run the sidewalk
under the portico.
The St. John's plot has a frontage of
239 feet, and it is suggested that the
property might be used as a public
park, with the building as its central
feature. The city ha? taken over that
part of the property extending thirty

POLICE SAY RIVAL

Second Visitor at Angle

MAY ARREST MAN
IN MYSTERY SOON
Spectacle Case Presents New
Clew?Woman's Mind Blank
on Many Details.
(By Tatet***?*")*' to The Tribune. 1
Stamford, Conn., June 2<\. The po?
lice of this city r.re now of the opin?
ion that when Waldo R. Ballou met
his death, after spending the evening
with Mrs. Helen Anglo, the divorcee
and singer, a rival, who was jealous
of Ballou, was in her studio apart?
ments in the Rippowam Building.
This theory was advanced by Homer
S. Cummings, State's Attorney, after
spending the afternoon at the Rippo?
wam Building, reconstructing the
events of Tuesday evening as he
thought they happened.
Chief of Police William Brennan,
who arrested Mrs. Angle on a technical
charge of being a material witness
after the finding of "Ballou'? body on
the sidewalk 1:1 front of her home,
said to-night that he believed he knew
who the second man was, and had him
"If developments should warrant
our arresting him at any moment, we
ei-n do FO," said Chief Brennan. He
refused to say if he believed this man
Mrs. Angle Better.
Mr?. Angle, who recovered her com?
posure sufficiently to ?-?turn from the
sanatorium, received the Tribune cor?
respondent at the home of her friend,
Mr-*. George Eagle, Y2" Main st., to?
When told what State's Attorney
Cummings said, ?he cried out:
"I wish to heaven that some one had
been present Tuesday night. Then I?
would not be in this plight. Then
there would be proof positive of the
fact that Mr. Ballou fell ?lowr. the
?fairs. No one hit him. He fell down
Then ?he became hysterical, and
between her sobs said:
"Don't believe m? guilty, I would
never think of hurting any one. And
as for the flatiron that Chief Brennan
says was used to hi?. Mr. Ballou, I
used It to iron some clothes for my
friend, Mrs. Carrie Barrett, who just
I into the apartment directly be?
neath mine that cry day."
At this moment there was a knock
at the door and Mr?*. Barrett entered.
Mm. Angle, throwing her arm?
about Mrs. Barrett'? neck, exclaimed:
"Oh, your coming is providential. You
know what I had the flatiron for. Tell
??She used it to iron some little
things for me," said Mrs. Barrett.
Mrs. Angle was then told of th?
f.nding of Ballou's spectacles in a
small wooden box in her apartment
iate this afternoon. The spectacles
were bloodstained but uninjured, and
some gray hair, which the police be?
lieve to be Ballou's, was matted to
the gold ear loop on the right side.
Her Mind a Blank.
"I do not know how that got into
the box," said Mrs. Angle. "I do not
remember whether Mr. Ballou wore any
spectacles that night or not. My mind
is a blunk about many things that
happened after he fell on the ?tairs."
She said that just before Ballou
left he asked her to go on an outing
with him Sun?U>, but that she had
to decline because she was due to sing
in the Labor Temple, Second av. and
14th at.. New York, on that day.

cago, where he went earlier in the week
i with W. R. Hearst. H? declined to dis
1 cus? th? trip.
r But, again, Columbia won, and that
is the ?ong, the theme, the music, to
which Columbia men are parading ths
streets of Poughkeepsie to-night. Th?
old time? h?ve returned, and once again
Columbia is king of the rowing world.
Nineteen long year? ago, 'way baek
in 1895, the blue and white of Colum?
bia swept down th?? majestic Hudson te
victory, and to-day another Colombia
crew revived the spirit that has lan
fuished and aroused into new life th?
?ame that was almost dead.

Columbia crew's most wonderful ef?
Pennsylvania, regenerated, reborn, as
it were, under the ?kilful guidance of
Vivian Nickall?, rowed to second place
in a death struggle with Cornell. Syra?
cuse, victorious last year, wa? rowed
into the ground, so to ?peak, in the
first mile, but hung on gamely and
managed to keep the eight men f r >.*.?
the far city of Seattle from snatching
fourth place at the end.
Wisconsin, plucky to the finish,
rowed a losing race from the start and
was last. This, in a nutshell, waa th?
ending of one of the greatest race?
ever rowed on the Hudson.
Little, indeed, did Columbia follow
; ers expeet its eight good men and tra?
? to row the r?ce they did. Outweighed
by many pounds but coached by Jim
Rice, than whom to Columbia no coach
is peer, the Blue and White eight
swept down from the green shade of
Krum Elbow to the finish line with
the power and precision of a priceless
Never once did one of those flashing
1 blades lose the beat, and never one?
' did one of those ?un bronzed back?
falter. Easily they rowed, and with
each stroke they seemed to gain new
! life, until at the end they were awing
! in?? along with the power and speed af
; a young cyclone.
No power afloat in the frail shells
that were racing could stop those Co?
lumbia men, for they rowed as no
Columbia crew has ever rowed before.
Half a mile from the finish they ?-/ere
on even terms with Pennsylvania and
in the next furlong they were in the
lead and plunging along to victory by
more than a length.

Race? and races have been rowed en
