Tho complete story of tho chase of ihe Fix from New York to New Orleans KvllI not bo known bofore tho return of kvilllnm .7. Hums. Hut this Is such of that story ns could bo gathered from the men he put to work on tho case: 1 I'hlllp Muslca lived nt tho Knicker bocker Hotel.

STATE CANAL BOARD DEADLOCK IS BROKEN Sheet Iron Piling Authorized in Iteenforcoment of Uiinhs at Rochester. Al.tUNT, Maroh 1$. Tho deadlock ex isting In the fitato Canal Honrd Hlncn early In January over canal contrncts wns broken to-day when the board, by a vote of 4 to 2. authorized Superin tendent of Public Works Duncan W.

Frequent clashes marked the rhree hour session of the board.

Olynn and Atiornev General Cnrmody have contended slme early In January that the icinforci mcnt of tho emhnnkmeuts Ls not im perative. They were sustained In thin view by Col. T. W. Symons, and CI. K, XV. Lucas, retired Unltetl States aimy engineers who were deslsnnted by 5o. Fulzer to look Into the mutter. The opposing State ofllcinls muluuiiiied that If money was needed to strengthen the banks of tho canal tho legislature should be asked for It and that the $101,000,000 voted by the people for the barge canal should nut be used for repair purposes. Col. Symons and Col. l.uc.is Hied a re port with tho board upholding tho -low.s of tho I.Ieutenant-fluvernor and tho At-torncy-Ueneral. Thu report holds that the uso of Hheet piling Is not necessary nt the present time, for the canal banks have been compacted so ns to form a solid barrier apalnst the water. At this point Htato llnirineer Hense produced a report madn by Col.

The hanks referred to In the reports are, located between ltochestcrnnd J-ock-port. HrRardlnr; thes., the 1910 report of Col. Symons nays: "There are a numls-r of serious leaks throughout tho north embankment be tween Adams Hasln nnd Just east of Spencerport. These not only threaten disaster to the embankment but make deep and bad mud holes In the tow path." To a question ot Meut.-Oov.

"In view of tho policy or tho Htato to avoid patented article In bulldlni; pood roads," said Lieut -Oov. Olynn. "I think we oiiRht to follow out that policy on the canals."

Murphy In New York on his latest visit. Friends of both men were surprised at the Oovernor's denial nnd said thn- If the meetlns did not take place they were greatly mis informed. The position of Ihe Governor nnd Mr. Murphy l likened to n sort of nrmed friendship by Tammany men Neither Mr. .Murphy nor Oov. Sulzer wnnts to rush to arms Hut that does not Inter fere with the administration forces get ting their guns cleaned for contllct. Mr Murphy knows that the Oovernor will not yield on the question of pat ronage In the Department of Hlghvvuys or the Department of Labor, the same men sjy. Mr. Murphy's adherent James H. Oaffney won't be appointed Super intendent of Highways, nor will The McManus go In ns Superintendent of I. atior. The Oovernor will stick hy his guns to the Inst In any tight over these men for these otllces. Friends of the Oovernor who henrd what his disposition wns in regnrd to them when he was In New York said yesterday that John Mitchell, who wns president of the Pnlted Mine Workers. Is the likeliest man for the Department of Ijibor. It was said yesterday by those who thought the meeting took placo thpt patronage was discussed by Mr. Murphy and the Oovernor. Tho De. partmcnl of Highways plum Is the one Mr. Murphy wants most. James K. Oa.'fney Is the orKunlr-ttion choice. Tammany Hall will have to Ret nlong without It. If the Oovernor sticks to his word Friends of the Oovernor pointed out yesterday thnt John Mitchell's presence In Oov. Sulzer's ofllclal family would be nn asset to him In winning labor sup port In piosont and future activities. His help to the organization In appor tioning patronage of this department, the scope of which Is much enlarged under tho present Administration, would bo negligible. Yet the Oovernor believes that the Tamtnuny PURgestlon of The McMntlus for this Job Is Impos sible. As against theso places, Oov. Sulzer Is understood to be willing to let Tam many have the two vacancies on the Supremo Court bench, those made by tho translation of Kdward K.

THOUGHT HE MET MURPHY. liovrrnor's Friends Are Pnmlril by Ills Denial. Amunv. .March IP. Legislators. imiII tlcians, olllceholders nnd even tho Oov ernor's friends aro puzzled to-night by his positive itntement that he did not lhave a conference with Mr. Murphy. Several of the Oovernor's friends who were 'u New York city with him came back with a deilnlto impression that tho Oovernor bad been present nt nn ln wniew In which Mr. Murphy took part. If thn Oovernor did not see Mr. Murphy some of tho Oovernor's friends have been sndly misinformed. There Is a denlnl, however, that the Oovernor told Senator O'Oormnn what he Intends to do. Others who were mado aware of tho Oovernor's nttltudo were De I.ancey Nlcoll nnd Public Ser vice Commissioner McCull and William H. Fitzgerald of Huffalo. Tho Oovernor's friends say thnt hMnns not backcl dovvnl one whit on the stand lie took several weeks ago and which resulted In a breach between him nnd Mr. Murphy. According to tho Oovernor's friends, Mr, Murphy was Informed that ho would bo recognized In the distribution of patronage In New York county, but that in tho rest of tho Stnte tho Oov ernor Intended to -ploy his own hand. If Mr. .Murphy consents to any such arrangement tho Oovernor then will feel that tho declarntlon hn mado nhurtly after his Inauguration thut ho was Stnto lender nail been Justified. With tho return of thn Oovernor there wero many Inquiries us to whether ho had decided on nny appointments. Thern has been a host of applicants for the 'head of thn Hlghwayo Department, who will havo $110,000,000 patrnnaRn nt his disposal, So far no name hns been sub mitted to tho Oovernor which meets with his approval.

Needless to say thern ara Cardinals of other nationalities in thn Barred College revered for their piety, their Intellectual attainments and their executive, ability, and It oes without saying that It Is not Imperative, upon tho Hacred College to elect only nn Italian to th chair of Peter. Hut now more than ever It Is neces sary that nn Italian Cardinal succeed to the papal chair owing to the strained relations between the Vatican and the Qulrlnul, u condition that Is likely to prevail for nn unknown number of years to come. Cardinal Itampolla piobably would havo been elected Pope at the last con clave except for n condition that no longer confronts the Sacred College Cardlnnl Itampolla led on the Hist and the second votes at that time, or until Archbishop, now Cardinal, NhrI oflcrrnmn Vienna announced that the Hmperor Francis Joseph wished to eercl-e an old iieroKatlve of Auitrlnn ruleis the right to enter nn objection to the elec-, tlon of a given candidate. for the Papacv. Francis .)oeph thought thai la u XML's Secretary of State, Cardinal Itampolla, had shown too strong a fi lendshlp to France. Wherefore Cardinal lititiipolta's name, was withdrawn, Hut unless Cardinal Hampolla posi tively dcclln-'s at the next conclave to be elevulid to tile Papacy It Is yuld III high Catholic circle" that there Is ever.v likelihood of his election. After Frnnc!" Joseph had protested at the conclave that resulted In the elevation of the present Pope tho Sacred College bv solemn vote resolved thut never again In a conclave would th protect t any temporal ruler be ailed upon by the College. Cardinal Itampolla. who is a Marquis of Italy, was born in Sicily in 1"i4S. He wns proclaimed a cardinal In IS1" and made Secretary of State for the Papacy by Pope I.eo XIII. Cardinal Cajctnn de Lai was born in Vlnretiza In isri:) and proclaimed a cardinal In 1907. As Secretary of the Conslstorlal Congre gation, of which the pope In the head, his office Is one of great authority in thut tho coiiRreRation, among other duties, has the appointment of all the Catholic bishops throughout the world. Cardlnnl Peter Oasparl was born Just outside of Home In 1S,'2 and was pro claimed Cardinal In 1007. Cardinal Oas parl. most eminent of the Church's can onists. Is looked upon by Catholic clergy everywhere as the real author of the new- code of canon law. upon which he still Is laboring night and day. For .'ome time he was Secretary nf Stute for F.xtraordlnary Affairs. Cardinal Vincent Vaiinutclll. Sub urban Bishop of Palestrlna, was born at Oenazzano In 1830 and mndc a Car dlnnl In 1SSP. Al present ho Is pre fect of the Apostolic Segnatura, which Is "the court of Inst appeal" In the matter of divorce where divorce Is permissible under Catholic law, and In nil questions relating to marriaRc. Cardinal Jerome Oottl. the Carmelite, was born at Oenoa In 1S.H and was proclaimed a cardinal In 189t"i. The office he now holds, Prefect of the Propa ganda, was the most iultuentlul position In the Catholic Church next, of course. lo thnt of Pope in tlto days when the civilized world was Catholic. . In later years so many countries passed from the prop.iRnnda to be placed under the consistory that the Influence of Prefect of the I'ropnRanda was lessened. Now only those countries considered as strictly missionary lands, such ns f-ome parts of America and of Afrlcu, for Instance, nre under the propaganda. Cardinal Peter Hesplghl, who fo many think would be mentioned prominently ns n successor to Pope Plus X. If his health wero not so poor that deuth Is expected at any time, is now Vicar Oeneral of the Pope. Cardinal Merry del Val, despite his Rreat attainments, la looked upon a un likely to tie seriously considered, largely because of his nationality. He was born In London In 1S65 while his father wmh Spanish Minister to the Court of St. James's. Ills mother was born in Kngland of Irish descent. He was pro claimed a Cardinal In lf'03 and Is now Papal Secretary of stnte. Cnrdlnnl Fnlconlo and Cardlnnl Mnr tlnelll are of Itnllnn birth, but Cardinal Falconlo became nn American citizen while he was stationed In New England as an Augustlnlun monk. Although there nre many who think that there Is n probability thnt Cardinal Falconlo will be elevated to tho Papacy, this opinion, ns one prominent Catholic put It last night, "Is not nearly so strong In Home ns In the minds nf lending Amerl cans, where the wish perhaps Is father to the thought." Cardinal Dlomedc Falconlo wns born at I'escocostanzo, nenr Aqulla. In the Ahbruzzl, In 1812 nnd entered the Fran ciscan order. Ho wns sent to the United States as a missionary in 1865. He spent wme tlmo at the monastery In Thompson street, then went to the Col lege of St. Donuvenlura In Allegany, whero ho completed his studies, was or dained priest and remained to teach theology for a time.
