SAGE INVESTIGATORS ATTACK NEWBURGH Citizens Quietly Henr It Cnlleil Suite's Worst TmhioM Town. SCHOOLS AltE DKXOt.XCKD Only 300 I'crsons at Mectiup ut Which Protests Were Expected. Nkwiichiiii, .May Id. Kxpected stormy protests failed to come from Indignant citizens of Newburgh at the public meeting at Columbia Hall to-night whin Zenns li. Potter and his assistants of the Social Survey of the Russell Sage I'oundatloti, who for six weeks have been Investigating health, school, finan cial and other departments of New burgh, rend their udverse reports against Newburgh's civil system. A placard placed by tho Social Survey workers In the window of the clothing stole of Alex Goldberg yesterday re mained In the window only a short while. It announced In large letters: NCWIICIUIII IS A TVPUOlD CITV. llcnealh this were stutistlcs showing thnt the typhoid percentage of New burgh is about 42 per cent., or twice the percentage of any other town In tho Stute, while thu average percentage of ilio State Is only about 14 per cent. In the window of the lending millinery ftore. next door to Goldberg's, was ii placard quite us objectionable to thu cltl.emt. Tho Social Survey Investigators say that with the exception of some leading litUons their Investigations from the first have been thwarted because "New burgh did not want to hear the truth about Itself. At any rate, when Mr. Goldberg returned from Munhutlun last atght and kiiw tho placard In his win dow he hastily ordered It taken down. Indignant New-burghers Ip the mean time had protested about the placard lu the millinery shop and Mr. Btirn, the proprletur had that one pulled down. At the lneeMng Ht Columbia Hall to night, presided over by Oruhnm Wit schles, Nowburgh's Corporation Coun sel, Instead of the great mass meeting which was expected, only about three hundred came to the hall, more thnn half beng woiuun. The Social Survey's r-'porta so far completed were read and about everything in the city came lu for condemnation. The derogatory re ports, however, were received In re spectful silence by the small uudlence. As to financial methods, says the re port, Newburgh has so old fashioned n method of tsmkki-eplng that one slight Item of $22,000 In the sinking fund Is Impossible to trace, although there la no intimation of dlshoninty. It was said also that the city "spends Its money before It gets It," or makes out Its budget in the fall nnd collects the funds tho following January. Instead of reversing Its procedure In collecting taxes and spending them. The water department, which was dwelt upon as one of the chief causes of the typhoid, came In for especially severe censure. The Sare Foundation Investigators condemned the manage ment of both the sourosj and tho water shod. The natural sanitation of New burgh was ndmltted to bo jood, but the failure of the city to Improve on what nature, gave it was said t be deplor able. All the schools, with the exception of one building recently erected, were con demned for lack of floor space and air space. As to the health bureau, the survey finds that the city's health officer gives but one hour a day to the work, whereas ho should give all his time to It, and, furthermore, that the city Is niggardly In Its appropriations to the health de partment. Lack of proper handling of the social evil and consequent moral and physical evils and Improper supervision of Indus tries nnd recreations were Hated. A general purchasing agent for the city was recommended to cut down waste. The only department that got u good word, in fact, was the prison system. Here, however, the report deplored the fact that the county has two Jails, one ut (Joshen and the other here, whereas one county Jail would reduce expenses. And the Investigators haven't quite finished either. SCHOOL SPLITS EMANU-EL. I'lttli Avenue Congregation Moat lieclflr UrtTreen Ita llalibla.

MITCHELL HEAD OF LABOR DEPARTMENT Sulzer Acts Around Sennte Ob jection by Acl Interim Appointment. WILLIAMS FIUST DEPUTY Republicans Hny Former Com missioner lias Fnvored Tnmmany.' John Mitchell, nx-prnsldent of the United Mine Workers, Is to take John Williams's place ns Commissioner of I.ubor, despite the two refusals of tho Stato Senate to confirm his nomina tion by the Governor, Mr. Mitchell was In Albany yester day talking with Gov. Sulzer about tho reorganization of tho Labor Depart ment lu accordance with tho now labor law, passed lu the last session of thn Legislature. Lute In the afternoon Gov. Sulzer nnnounced his appointment. Tho Job pays J 8,000 u year. Hoon after Mr. Mitchell's appointment was made publlo ho turned around and nnmed John Williams, his predecessor In ofllce, n first deputy In tho depart ment. The Increase of the scope of the Department of Labor makes the shift In position less serious to Mr. Will iams's Interests than would appear. As his friends put It, thero Is room enough for two. The Governor's legal advice Jus tides lilm In making the appoint ment, ho says, because under the law he can make an nd Interim appoint ment which Is good until twenty-one days after tho Senate meets and If tho Senate Is still obdurate Mr. Mitchell stnys In. The extra session of the Legislature the middle of Juno Is not expected to make any difference. Hut Mr. Mitchell's name will have to go to the Senate when It meets next January. There Is u chance that the legality of It will come before the State courts In the Intervnl because Comp troller Hohmer, a steadfast Murphy man. may hold up Mr. Mitchell's salary, alleging that the Governor had no power to appoint while the Senate was not In session. The last days of Mr. Williams's ad ministration of the Department of libor hare put tho Hepubliciui poli ticians of New York by the ears. Will iams Is nominally a Itepubltcun, but recent appointments and suspensions ascribed to him make him look like n partisan of another stripe.

DOCTOR HERE WITH PIORKOWSKI CURE Says It Is tho Original Turtle Culture Mnde Harmless. Dr. William Johnston Heattle of Lit tleton. N. H., who has been experiment ing and ntudying four months In tho Herlln laboratory of Dr. Plorkowwkl, one of the first to uso the turtle serum rem edy for tuberculosis, arrived yesterday by the Cunarder Mauritania with enough serum to treat several hundred patlent.s and the recipe for mnklng nil thnt ho may need In his practice. He said Dr. Frlodmann hr.d conceived thi same Idea of the value of tho serum as Dr. PlorkowskI, who really dUicov- jtred It, and that Dr. Friedmnnn Jyil I left the Ilorkowskl laboratory In .1 I hurry, before Dr. PlorkowskI had per- ieteii the remedy, and rushed off to commercialize It. Dr. Heattle said he believed that the difference between Mho PlorkowskI serum, which Is also the Heattle serum, and the Frledmann serum was essen tial. The Frledmann cure, he said, was the Ilorkowskl serum in the experi mental .stage, or as It was when Dr Frledmann left Dr. Plorkowskl's lab oratory, and th Beattlo scrum was the perfected product of Dr. Ptorkowekl'a patient laboratory work. "We have eliminated the danger of using the serum that has attended Its application by Dr. Frledmann," said Dr. Heattle. "That means that we hnve removed tho possibility of abscesses forming In the cells after Inoculation, Dr. Frledmann claims that he has a tubercular bacillus. So ho has. but he Is wrong If ho says he Is the only man that has one. He saw nn opportunity to strike out for himself after he had been experimenting for some time In Dr. Plorkowskl's laboratorv, and he went Into the world and commercialized hi Idea." Dr. Heattle said he Intended to open a laboratory here and treat everybody; those that could pay would be expect .1 to and those who could not woull be tretted free. "Dr. Frledmann." Dr. Heattle said, "may use his sert m and I will use Dr. IMorkowskl's nnd then we shall see." In a typewritten statement nlvcn to the reporter nt Quarantine, Dr. Heat tle eays: "Dr. PlorkowskI, as a matter of fact, discovered that turtle bacillus could be used as n treatment for tuberculosis, and to him should be given the credit, without any shadow of doubt, for this discovery, "Tho wonderful results obtained by thle special form of turtle bacillus Is nothing short of miraculous, and I ntn so thoroughly convinced of Its efficiency that I would say without fear of con tradiction that nearly all cases of tu berculosis In their first nnd second second stages can bo absolutely cured." The arrival of Dr. Heattle with the PlorkowskI tuberculosis serum Injects a third group Into the already tangled turtle germ situation here. Dr. neattle says thai he has the rights for the sain of the serum In this State and In Massa chusetts, nnd will begin troatment soon. Tho two other camps, tho Etsner Frledmann combination and tho Dr. Sturm turtlo cnblnet, were both very active yesterday. Dr. Sturm handed out yesterday a long statement telling what ho thought of Dr. Frledmann. Morltz Ktsnor nnd his lawyer went to Philadelphia yester day. It was said that their errand waa to sell the right to uso tho serum In Pennsylvania. TACT AGAINST STATE PRIMARY. Sara It Gives Too Mark Advantage to Men, of Wealth. Nrw Havin, May 16. Federal ratron nge and primaries were discussed to-day In a lecture on "Some Questions In Modern Government," which Prof, William Howard Taft delivered to his class In Yale College, "Primaries for the elec tion of local officials and for decisions In other local questions nre practical, but State primaries are radically extreme measures," Prof. Taft said. He con tinued : "A ntate primary gives advantages to men of wealth nnd grant ambition who aro willing to spend money more freely to obtain their election than men who mernly hnvo good qualifications. If the provision which requlrea the npprnval by united States Senators of appointments for Federal offices were abolished the opportunity of these Senators to build up machines through Federal patronage would bo dona away with and millions of dollars could be saved the Government. "There Is a publlo opinion above that of all the voters, the opinion of minors and women who cannot vote.
