I What action. It any. China will take now that
I the btll has become a law, can only bo conjeo-
I tured from statements made In the dobate on
I the measuro and from tho tenor of tho inter-
I' lew to which tho Chinese Minister recently
I lubmltted, tho nrst tlmo In tho history ot tho
B" legation that such an event occurred. It was
stated In Congress that China would retaliate
for such legislation by Issuing a decroe ex
cluding all Amorlcans from that country. In
the lntorvlow roforrod to the Chinese Minister
-as quoted as Intimating broadly the inten
tion of his Government to withdraw Its em
bassy from tho Dnltod States it tho presence
of tho subjects of tho Colostlal empire were no
longer doslred hero. Tho Mlnlstor has also
protested In strongest terms to the Btato De
partment again Bt tho polloy of this Govern
ment on tho subject of Chlnose immigration,
and the evtdonces aro quite strong that China
will suspend dlplomatlo relations with the
i United States.
It is said to-night that the Chinese Minister
l is so Indignant that he has plainly intimated
his intention to ask for his passports and for
y mally withdraw the legation from Washing
ton. Mo authority can be givon for the state
ment, however, and it is doubtless based
upon the gonoral knowledge ot the displeas
ure which tho Minister and his Government
J eel at tho disposition of CongresB to enact
lostilo legislation. When the Geary bill woa
rushed through the Bouse in such not hasto
the Chlnose Minister mado no secret of the
fact that ho regarded the act as not only un
necessary, but decidedly unfriendly , and a
plain violation of treaty obligations. The Min
ister is equally Arm in that opinion as regards
the less vigorous measure framed by the con
ference committee. Whether it will lead his
Government to the point ot severing dlplo
matlo relations with the United States can
only be conjectured.
When The Bom reporter called at the Minis
ter's residence this evening he oonveyed the
, first information received there that the
i bill had beoome a law. The Minister
sent his Secretary to say. .that he
could not now make a definite state
ment for publication, as he must first
ba officially notified of the action of tha Presi
dent. The Minister added that he haa kept his
Government informed of the various stops
taken by Congress, and had cabled to Pekln
the draft ot Che original bill and all the
f endends that hay been added. He un
vtands fully tne political feature entering
o the question, but thinks it would be high
improper for him to say more on the sub
t now.
congressman Hltt. Chairman of the Foreign
flolrs Committee In the Fifty-first Congress,
and now tho leader ot the minority on tha
committee, and who opposed the passage of
. the bill from the beginning, on the ground
that it is In direct violation of the existing
treaty with China, said to-night:
"I endeavored to point out, while the bill
was under consideration In the House, the In
justice of such a measure, and I am happy to
say that in some particulars I asslstod In soft
ening the harshest provisions ot the bill. It
i appears that we propose to treat the Chlnose
' as so many dogs, and roquire them to bo
tagged, ana to be prepared at all times to be
ready to produce evidence that they are
eltlrens and duly certified. I do not look
for any very serious results as the effect of the
law. unless the Chinese undortake to retaliate
and treat Americans in China as wo propose
to treat their subjects. They havo the right
to 111 treat our missionaries and our merchants
and compel them to produce a certificate of
their character and standing In the com
munity in which they may have resided for
years. I would not be surprised it it
should result in the recall of the prosent
Minister. He is prevented by this act from en
tering into any negotiations with our Govern
ment, as far as a treaty Is concernod. I don't
believe he would dare attempt to make a treaty
with us now. for his Government Is very strict,
and Chinese diplomats are very cautious In
daallng with countries that treat them aa we
aro treating their subjects under tho law."

A small, rather good-looking woman, plainly
but neatly dressed, stood in front ot tho Jersoy
City Post Office, in Washington street about
6K P. M. yesterday. She was evidently wait

eomlng up tho street, somo from tho sugar

along with two companions attracted tho
woman's attention. Bho drew back in the

"C. K. Adams, Prcsldont."
President Adams said to-night that he did
not think It advisable to give any furtlic
reason for Ills action than his lotter. Ho hod
taken the stop deliberately, nnd it was flnm.
There has bcon no vlslblo conflict botwocn
tho trustees, faculty, and tho President. No In
timation, ot his resignation has reached tho
outside world until to-day, and there Is a gon
oral feeling ot dismay and Burpriso in tho
university. For a yonrthero have boon rumors
that certain members of tho faculty have boon
jealous ot President Adams nnd were anxious
to securo his place. Profs. Whoulor and
Schurman havo been mentioned as available
candidates to succeed him.
President Adnms was professor of history at
Ann Arbor Unlvorslty when ho was called to
the Presidency of Cornell. His selection was
largely due to tho lnducncoof ex-Prostdent
Andrew 1. Whlto. Ho camo to Cornell In
188U. It has boen an open socrot tor several
Soars that tho Prosldont and tho majority ot
lo professors wore not in accord. A gentlo
man aoquatntod with the history of Prosldont
Adams's administration said last nlcht:
"President Adnms Is an able nnd conscien
tious man, nnd Is highly respected by ovon
those who differ with him. Tho university has
prospered greatly under him. but thero have
been dlfferoncos ot opinion, novortholoss. Ho
labored under the disadvantage of bolng the
successor of President White, who was en
abled by his great wealth to do much that Mr.
Adams could nut hope to do. Mr. Whlto could
employ men to assist him, and was therefore
able to keep up his work lnsldo tho university
at tho samo time that he maintained his prom
inonce before tho outside world. Uosldes.
President Adams was not educated up to tho
advancod methods that Mr. Whlto had intro
duced Into Cornell. He was too conservative.
" Ono cause of friction was that some ot tho
professors had boon willing to leave Cornoll
when ofTerod inducements by tho now uni
versities, while the professors of Yolo and
Harvard refused thorn. That indicated that
perfect harmony did not prevail. Thero was no
specific cause for this and no row ot any kind.
The lack ot harmony was shown when the
University Henato. which practically rules the
Internal affairs ot the university, and which is
composed of certain professors, failed to eon
firm certain professors whom tho President
had nominated. This was done simply bo
cause the majority of Com oil's professors did
not agree with tho President as to tho sort ot
men that would help the university most. ,
"The trustees will probably hold a special
meeting and accept President Adams's resig
nation. There has novor been any considera
tion of a possible successor. Mr. Adams mar
ried the widow of A. S. Barnes, the book pub
lisher, soveral yoars ago. She Is wealthy. Ho
will probably devotn his time to historical lit
erary worK hereafter. During Mr. Adams's
term ot office tho number ot students has been
more than doubled, a law school has been es
tablished, numerous new buildings erected.
especially noteworthy being linrnos Hall and
the Sage Library building, tho latter in mem
ory of JennloMcGraw Fiske. whose intention
of building a library was balked by a contest
ot her will. .

doathof his wife.
Tho inquest was hold In tho Newtown Court
House. The court room was packed with col
orod people. They extended out on tho plat
form In front ot the door and down tho rickety
wooden stairs Into the stroet. In order to
avoid trouble ot nny kind. Coroner Brandon
had Hamilton taken to Kowtown In a coach
fiomtho Queens county jail in Long Island

which was found thirty feet from tho pond.
There wns no blood on tho grass thereabouts,
but when he dragged tho body out of tho pond
th wound began bleodlng ugntn.
Mrs. Louisa Morris of 112 Broadway. Flush
ing, said that Hamilton had boarded with her
for about a year. Last Sunday night ho
changed his good suit of clothes for hlB every
day suit and loft tho house about 7:43 o'clock
in tho evening with his overcoat on his arm
and his walking stick, the one exhibited to tho

He had n ticket for Wlnflold. The train was
about seven minutes lato and did not get to

was not on tho train when it left Winfleld.
Brakeman Georgo Loek corroborated Grover.
Mrs. barah Vnrrln. who was nt tho Wlnflold

off with a big man woarlngan overcoat similar
to tho ono shown her. which belonged to Ham

When she hoard of the murder next day she
went to see the body and at once recognized It
as that of tho woman sho had seen the night
beforo la the depot. Mrs. Cook testified to the
samo effect.., . ,
Constable Edward A. Slnvln of Flushing pro

Dr. A. C Combes and Dr. A'incont Judson.
who made tho post-mortem examination,
thought tho woman's throat must havo been
out aftor she was in the water owing to the ob
senc) ot blood on her clothing. Mrs. Hamil
ton was about to become a motnor.
How tho henvy enne enmo to bo broken hns
not yot been explained, as thoro were no other
wounds on the woman's body besides tho one
which caused her death. Dr. Combes says the
womnu had a great quantity ot hair, and that
with the bonnet made a kind of cushion across
which a stick as heavy ns the cano would have
bean broken without leaving any marks on
tho scalp benonth. Hamilton says his wlfo
was lame from rheumatism and that he lent
her tho cano several days ago. Perhaps she
had It on this particular night and broke It
over Hamilton either in h rage or in self-defence.
Hamilton hid his fnce in his hands when ho

Thlsexcludos nil mombors ot religious or
ders. Tho amendmonl was carried after a
bitter light which lasted all day: The ballot
was 73 etoncals and 40 parish votos for tho
amendment and 52 clorlcal and 20 parish
votes against It Five churches wore divided.
Bishop Whltaker presided, and so great wan
tho oxcltement during tho moro heated pas
sages of debate that it was with difficulty that
ho could preserve order. Tho meotlng con
vened nt 0:30 o'clock in tho morning, and tt
was not until nearly 7 o'clock in tho afternoon
that tho final vote was taken. The sensation
of tho day was an exceedingly passionate
speech of Henry 1' landers, a layman from

or Ht. Stephen's Church for his broad vlows of

Central Fast Freight Train.
Albant. May 5. Billy Whipple, the engineer
on a fast freight coming east on tho Now York
Contral to-day, was takon from tho cab of his
onglno at Fonda station unconscious and
bruised. His fireman says that two miles east
of Pslatlno Bridge ho callod tvico to tho engi
neer without getting n response. He then dis
covered that the engineer's hoad and shoul
dors were hanging out ot the cab window and
that he wns blecdtngat tho month. The flroman
ran the train through to Fonda. The onglnoer
was token Into the Bnoll House, a hotel
nenr tho tracks, and Dr. Do Bann was callod.
He found the engineer's facobrulsod as though
It had been dragged against a rough surface.
Ho decided that the man wassultorlng from
concussion of the brain, the result ot u severe
blow on the head. The onglnoer hns not ut
tered a Eound during tho doyoxcopt repeated
groaning, and has not recognized nny one. To
night ho seems to be sinking, nnd word has
been wired to tills city for Dr. vandervoor.

those who assisted wero surprised tollnd Ids
wntch chnin dangling from his pocket. His
watch was handed to tho authorities hero by
the fireman, who said ho picked it up in tho
cab. Tho hook to the chain had been broken
asthough the watch had beon wrenched loobe.
It is said here that he had a $100 bill In his
fioctotbook when ho started out but only a
Ittle over S40 was found on bis person. The
fireman's story that tho engineer's head was
struck by nn obstruction between Palatine
Bridge and Fonda is received with surprise.
The train waa running on tho east-bound
fiassenger track, whlt-h is the first one next to

that aide of thn track, and no other obstruc
tion between Palatino and Fonda. Tho sta

Concetta says she met Gaynor In 1888 while
he wns travelling and studying in Italy, in

gard for each other, she says, soon riponed
lntolovo, and she taught him her molodtoua
language. A year or so after their acquaint
ance began sho hnd a child. Ha returned to
this country, sho says, soon after the birth of
tho baby, but ho kopt sending her many let
ters ot affeotlon. Thoso, her lawyor says, will
bo used In ovldonco at tha trial. In one of
theso. which sho alleges he wrote. In Italian
evidently, ho says:
"I wish tho day will como whon you and I
shall bo united."
"Most of them, sho says, wero signed "my
dear sweetheart." Tho letters from him be
gan to drop off through the spring of 1800. and
in August of that year mother and child camo
to this country. She avers that he wanted hor
to resume their old relations here, but that
sho refused unless ho would fulfil tho promise
which sho says ho had often made to marry

said positively that tho reporter's visit was tho
llrst she hnd heard of it She said sho had
never heard of the young woman and nover
knew that her son had been engaged to bo
married, therefore she could not have Inter
posed any objection to nny marriage. As to
the young woman and tho baby coming to iho
Nevada flats and being turned away, she said
that that was certainly not truo or she would
havo heard of It. Hhe also said that her son
did most of his studying in Franco and not in
