terday a little man with stooping
shoulders, a grizzled mustache and a

with his own conduct while representing

'rcsrets nothing that he did against the
Maderos and for the Hucrta-Dlax fac-
t'on Insists that he would do the same
thing over again, and accuses the
Maderos and particularly the widow of

President, of Northern Pacific
to Rule Reorganized New
Haven System.
Howard Elliott, who succeeded Charles
S. Mellen ten ears ago as president of
the Northern Pacific Railroad, was
selected yesterday by the directors of the
New York, New Haven and Hartford Rail
road to succeed Mr. Mellen when the tat
ter's resignation as president becomes ef
fective on September I.
The very first thing Mr. Elliott did
after leaving the directors was to welcome
a delegation of newspaper men and to tell
them frankly what his policy Is to he. He
made It clear that he recognizes that a
great corporation that sells service to the
public must take the public Into Its confi
dence, seek tn know Its desires and to
meet all reasonable requests for efficient
"The laws, rules and regulations laid
down by proper Government authority,"
he said, "will be obeyed. If they are such
as to cripple the effectiveness and to
hamper the development of the railroad
In Its effort to help the public a state
ment tn that effect will be made and a
request that the people In their own Inter
est, as well as In the Interest of the rail
road, will permit reasonable changes.
r "It has been my good fortune to have
close and friendly relations wlfn the com
munities served by the railroads with
which I have worked, and with the officers
and employees of these roads. So far as I
have the strength moral, mental and
physical I shall work to have the same
kind of relations among the New England
Linos and the governing bodies, the public,
the prcs, the employees and the owners.
"I believe mot thoroughly In the
fundamental strength of the New Eng
land properties. In their ultimate ability
to furnish the transportation needed by
New England, and In the final good sense
and fair Judgment "f the public. And I
believe that the problems now presented
to the management and to the public can,
must and will be solved."
Mellen Approves Choice.
Mr. Elliott's assumption of the duties
Of president of the New Haven tine win
be temporary, however. Acting upon the
recommendation of a committee represent
ing the shareholders of the railroad the
lioard of dlrectora decided yesterday that
the entire system ought to be reorganised
and that this should be done ns soon as
possible. Mr. Elliott, under the proposed
scheme, will be chairman of the board of
the New Haven and of the board of
each of Its subsidiaries. He will not be
president of any one of thv various roads.
Each road will have Its own presldnt.
Mr. Mellen, on receipt of a request for
an Interview, Issued 11 statement declar
ing his intention to purxue his course of
not granting Interviews and expressing
his approval of Mr. Elliott.
The selection of Mr. Elliott feirto n
sub-committee of the directors composed
of J. P. Morgan. Theodore N. Vail, Will
lam Skinner, Samuel Rea, Edward Milll
gan and Robert W. Taft. This committee
received a letter from the shareholders'
committee, headed by George von L.
Meyer, which said In part,:
"The proposed rtthdrnwal of the
present head of the system Invites con
sideration of the scheme of organization,
since an opportunity Is afforded of making
such changes as will tend to obtain
greater efficiency in the management of
tne vnrlous properties now comprised in
the New Haven system than could be
expected under an organization originally
planned lor a much simpler condition.
Suggestions of Stockholders.
"With this object In view, and after
haxlng considered only conditions as they
actually exist, without attempting either
to discuss the pnst events which have pro
duced them or to determine the future
policies which will best enable the com
pany to fulfil Its public functions, our
committee at prerent limits Its suggestions
to the following, relating especially to or
ganization :
"We recommend that the two principal
railroad organizations (the New York.
New Haven & Hartford Company and the
lloston and Maine Railroad), the steamship
and the trolley lines shall be actually op.
crated by presidents, one for each system.
wno snail oe men or practical experience,
who shall have full responsibility for the
operation of their respective properties,
and with whom the public may deal di
rectly, nnd that local officers and proper
local operating staffH shall be provided.
','VVe recommend that as chairman of
the board of directors of the New Haven
company there shall be selected a person
other than the above mentioned presidents,
who lias had broad executive, experience
and who will Inspire the public and the
shareholders with .confidence that the fu
ture policies will be founded and carried
out on conservative and constructive lines;
and also that In order to establish and
maintain proper coordination InMhc op
eration of the respective properties the
said chairman shall also be chairman af
the boards of the several corporations and
tho chief executive officer nf the entire
"We recommend that the boards of
directors of the New Haven Company and
the Boston nnd Maine Railroad ahull In
clude a sufficient number of Influential
residents of the several States In which
the properties are situated adequately
to represent the Interests of the communi
ties served.
Want Uniformity In Laws.
"We recommend thaMhe. legal organisa
tion of the system be simplified, and that
efforts be made In conjunction with the
Governora' Conference to secure uniformity
In the railroad laws throughout the New
England States, especially In those affect
ing the laauea of shares and securities."
The sub. committee began Its session at
2 o'clock, and an hour later was ready
for tho meeting of the full board. The

Chief Mutineer, In Chains,

OssininpT Fears Danger of Gen

Averted. Oshininci, July 25. Sixty ronvlcts were
sent from Sing Sing prison to-day to
Auburn prison amid the greatest uprntir
In the history of the big Jail on the Hud
son. It was the new warden's body blow
at an Insurrection that Isn't over by any
' Last tilcht was the worst Oslnlng ever
knew. The 1.100 men In the cell block In
the prison shrieked, sang, howled and
cursed all night long and could be heard
for miles. In the village the naval militia
men stood around with loaded pistols In
their pockets. In the houses people lay
listening to the racket and wondering If
It would stop long enough to let them fall
asleep. It didn't.
Soon after sunrise ninety guards, the
biggest array the prison has mustered In
a long time, gathered In the yard to pick
the men who were to go to Auburn. Five
guards went up to each cell nnd hauled
out a sjeepless. noise crazed felon. As
fast as two men were pulled out they
were shackled, ankle to ankle, wrist to
wrist. The pairs were driven to the yard
and lined up against a wall.
Like a Menagerie.
Their comrades Indoors mad more
noise than ever. Bed legs went crushing
against the cell doors, the yelling sounded
like howls from a menagerie. In the yard
under heavy guard the drafted men cursed
their keepers, cursed the warden, and
above all tho prison Itself. Hash, buns
and coffee were brought out to them.
The task of getting the sixty men ready
for shipment took ninety men Just four
It was 9 o'clock before the procession
was ready to move. The hundreds of
men ordinarily at work were still In their
cells yelling like Indians and demanding
a breakfast long overdue. Itut Warden
Clancy was taking no chances. Indoors
they stayed until 11 o'clock.
When the shackled sixty were all ready
for the trip a dozen guards mixed up
among them, two dozen more guards sur
rounded them, and a start waa made for
the railroad tracks. The chain gang was
marched around tn the south end of the
Jail and nut of a gate looking east, "Old
P. K." Principal Keeper Jim Con-
naughton -stalked In front and the out
lying guards waved long and business
like clubs. The convicts stumbled along
as best they could, tripping each other
and laughing a little In spite nf their bit
terncsH of spirit.
Toern Folk Driven Bark.
Out the lower gate they came. From
five hundred to n tninsand townspeople
wcie on the hill overlooking the prison.
The guards drove them back. The draft
moved slowly past the mam office.
"Don't let htm take our picture,"
jelled a big negro shackled to a white
mat'. The man behind pretended to have
stumbled, stooped and picked up a stone
as big as his fist.
"No. no! Don't throw. They're our
friends !" shouted 11 wlldeyed forger a lit
tle back. "Say, you gue, give us a
wrlteup for God's sake. The men In that
hell are starving!"
The stone wasn't thrown Just then.
Although Warden Clancy had ordered his
tnen not to keep the newspaper men be
yond their line two guards smashed a
camera and manhandled the reporter who
carried It. The convicts didn't like this.
There was more "stumbling" In the line
of march nnd when the chain gang got to
its feet again a shower of stones went
sailing at the guards ahead. The guards
ducked for their lives. A couple wcie
struck, but only slightly hurt.
Curse Prison lis 'I' hey tin.
"Good-by, Sing Sing, inttcn thing
tiling," chanted the men in chains as they
stumped along the path outside the cell
A big roai went up indoors. It was the
salute of the men left behind. There was a
fluiry of caps and "wavlni! army from the
ranlis on the hill outside,
"lly, fellows !" called the marching
men. "Take It out on somebody and any
body for ns !"
"We'll tlx 'em!" rainc the cry fioni the
cell block. "Did they feed you? They
didn't us."
Hundreds nf uomeii and childieu wcie
running down the steep hillside and even
xcallng the Iron ft nee above the New
York Central truck The procession
rolled slowly doun a gravel path to n
little platform beside the rails.
Plead fur Coiprntlrs.
They were twe'i'y minutes ahead of
train time. They stood In 11 wretched hud
dle, pleadlnii with the folka who peered
down from above to "do something fir
those poor gus back there."
'Say, you folks," entreated the forger
who looked near collapse, "They wouldn't
let our folks know wo were belns scut 1
up In Auburn. Am t that u shame?"
The hg negro laughed until he shook.
Then he plucked chunks of rock from the
hillside and hurled them at people across
the tracks. The guards didn't stop him,
On the bluff all tho police of Osslnlng
were busy helping the prison guards to

Calls Oovernor the Prince of
Falsifiers in Albany
Lieutenant - Governor Says
Sulzer Knew He Was
Not. at Session.
But Sulzer Thinks They May
Be Fought Heniuse of
No Quorum.
Af.MANT, July 25 Lieut -Gov. Glnn
came forward to-day and proclaimed Gov.
Sulzer an aitlstlc falilller, willing to do
anything to get his name In the first
page columns of the newspapers.
Ills remarks were caused by the Gov
ernor's statement that the records of the
Senate and Assembly were falsified as to
the number of incumbers present at Wednes
day night's meeting of the Legislature.
"If correctly reiiorted In the picss of
this morning Gov. Sulzer Iris usurped
the thrones long occupied by Huron Mun
chausen, Ilenvemito Cellini and Col. Sel
lers as the world's most artistic liars."
said Mr. Ulynn. "Unto himself alone the
Governor hits appropriated the thtee
pedestals formerly occupied by this In
famous trinity of truth distorters.
"Gov. Sulzer Is quoted as saying that
Lleut.-Gov. Glynn falsified the records
of Wednesday night's session of th
Senate. This Is a malicious falsehood.
Lleut.-Gov. Glynn was not near the
Capitol on Wednesday, dtd not attend
Wednesday night's session of the Senate
and did not sign the bills passed by the
Senate that night.
"Mnnla" for Publicity.
"In his quenchless thirst for notoriety
a little thing like the truth does not
prevent Oov. Sulzer from saying any
thing that will get him on the first page
of the newspapers. He has a mnnla tor
seeing his name tn print. He Is suffering
from 'first pageltls.' His vanity Is ex
ceeded only by the peacock, nnd he mis
takes the sound of his own name for
thunders of popular applause.
"If the Governor has not lost bis
senses he must know this statement about
Llcut.-Gov. Glynn was false. His secre
tary. Chester C. Piatt, was In and out
the Senate a number of times Wednesday
night and snys he told Gov. Sulzer thai
Mr. Glynn was not there.
"The Governor has not lost his sense
of hearing, hence he must be malicious
Yesterday he called for tho Journal of
the Senate and read it. The Journal
hows Lleut.-Gov. Glnn did not preside.
The Governor Is not blind, and h
can read. Yesterday the Governor signed
some bills passed by the Senate Wednes
day night. Now unless he signs bills
without lending them, or unless he thinks
with his feet, he must have seen that
the bills were not attested by Mr. Glynn
and yet the Governor says they were.
Ihe minutes of his own stenographer re
port him as saying It.
What the Records Short.
"The Journal of the Senate, the bills
passed by the Senate, the word of Gov.
Sulzer's own secretary cither show that
Gov. Sulscr has lost his senses or lost
his respect for the truth; maybe both.
Anyway, he Is guilty of the innkest
kind of falsehood in this matter.
"Good-by, Col. Sellers ; good-by, Hen
venuto Cellini ; good-by, Karon Mun
chausen; good-by, Ananias; jou are
things of the past. You have lost tour
glory and your fame, your peacock feath
ers and our yellow Jacket, You nr
tyros in the game of falsehood com
pared to William Sulzer. Like a Co
cussus of the world he bt strides the
three thrones of mendacity you formerly
occupletl and craves for moic. and be Is
equal to the Job. Another feat like,
this and Gov. SuUcr will have Ananias
beaten to a frazzle."
The Governor after approving nearly
all of tho measures passed by the Leg
Islatuic Wednesday night expressed the
belief to-d.ty that, his action on them
could be upset easily In the courts by
any one who desired to tiring an action
for this purpose. The Governor said he
had been advised that in the Senate there
were present only seventeen Senators and
in tho Assembly only thirty-seven mem
bers, while It was certified on Ihe hills
when they came to him that twenty
eight Senators and ninety-eight Assembly
men had voted for thorn.
Thls.certlflcatlon by Ihe legislative offi
cials, the Governor charged, constituted
a crime, "because they knew they were
certifying to n falsehood." The Gov
ernor declared he had .the names of thoiu
present In both houses.
The Constitution and the statutes are
very clear, In the opinion of the Governor,
and show that thn Legislature cm do
nothing without a quorum; therefoia
everything done on Wednesday night la
null and void.
( nest Inn of tt Jonrnnir n t,
The Governor holds that the Legisla
ture In the event of no quorum cannot
adjourn except slue die. When it was
pointed out to him that the general un
derstanding Is that the power to adjourn
to a Inter date is one of Ihe functions
of the Legislature even with n quorum
lacking the Governor declared ho was
willing to argue this point. In the next
breath he said he had been advised hy
eminent counsel that the Legislature hav
ing abdicated its functions could not
meet again this year for any purpose.
"But, Governor, the legislature Is either
In recess or stands adjourned," waa sug
gested hy one of his hearers. The Gov
ernor held In the point that thn Legisla
ture only could have adjourned sine die.
The Governor had In mind ths natsssat
