Opponents of the Administration were

day to a charge that has been made In
Congress that he had entered Into a deal
with Great Hrltaln by which the latter
nation was to fret a repeal of the tolls ex

support President Wilson's Mexican policy.
The Frrtldent eharaeterled this at oie
of a lumber of "Inaaltt" that have keea
lajteted Into the tolls debate.
He expressed great regret at what
seemM to him to be a degenerating of
the debate Into an effort to discredit the
Administration. He declared, however,
that the outcome would not be affected
by this.

Judge Klrby made "free tolls" one of

Superiors Displeased by His Ut

Month piece.
Washinotom, March 30. Dudley Field
Malone. Collector of the Port of NVw
Tork, Is to Ik Informed that It Is the
opinion of his official superiors that he
ought to attend moro strictly to the
duties of his ottlce.
Mr. Malone'a statement In the morning
newspapers commenting on the recent
appointments of Qov. Glynn of New York
has aroused the Ire of Administration
leaders. They want Mr. Malone to quit
talking politics.
The Intimation Is to.be conveyed to the
Collector that his ubsences from the
Custom House on pleasure Jaunta and for
other purposes are not looked upon with
favor in Washington. One of the pur
poses of the anticipated communication
to Mr. Malone Is to throw a dash of cold
water upon the enthusiasm with which
he has taken up the task of expressing 1
the sentiments of the national Adminis
tration upon political developments In
New Tork State.
Friends of the President here believe
that the Job of Collector Is large enough
to engage all of Mr. Malone'a enera-lea
and that adequate attention to hit office 1
iu reauu in longer spells of silence aa
to what President Wilson thinks or what I
Jlr, Mnlone thinks the Prcsldnt thlnka.
Officials here have felt embarrassment
at the statements bearing upon New
York politics nnd the fight for party re
organization thtro made by Mr. Malone
In the last few months.
Tnis feeling was drawn to a head bv
Mr. Malone'a action yesterday in Issuing
a statement declaring that tho greatest
"u"'ur Ul wv- u'nns appointments
i ru nopeiessiy oaa ana demonstrated
that the State ndmlnlstratlon is domi
nated by tho Murphy Influence. Mr.
Malone In making this statement Inti
mated that he expressed the sentiments
of the President.
The vpecifli: reason assigned for the
anticipated admonishing of Mr. Malone Is
repeated absences from his post. These
have Included a number of visits to Wash
ington nnd most recently a vacation trip
to Uermuda.
President Wilson let II be known to
day that Mr. Malone Is not to be regarded
as the mouthpiece of the Administration.
Tho President considers himself th.
mouthpiece and does not share thla re
sponsibility with any one.
Care waa taken, however, to make It
clear that this utterance ought not to be
considered aa casting any reflection upon
air, Malone.
While denial waa made hero to-day
that anybody was authorized to speak for
President Wilson In regard to Gov.
Glynn's appointments it was believed
In orflclal circles that tho announcement
of Gov. Glynn's list of appointments will
result In the withdrawal of the tentative
approval which the national Administra
tion conferred on the Governor some
time ago.

Whether or not they should make their

fore the residents of Hartley, Livingston

agree to make their own beds on these
days. The maids work seven days a

The proposition has met with genoral
favor and up to last night nearly 40 per

Finally Leads to Happy
Reunion Here.
A gray haired man of prosperous ap
pearance rapped timidly upon a door on
the third floor of the house at 87 Bouth
Fourth street. In Williamsburg, yesterday
morning. His manner was that of one
who seemed to dread the outcome of ..'hat
was about to happen.
The door opened. Confronting the man
was a woman of about his age. gray
hnlred too. Wondcrlngly she stood as he
walked In. wiping her hands nervously
upon her apron.
For a moment or two he struggled for
speech, then he regained self-control.
"Mary 1" he cried, holding out both hands
to the woman. "Don't you know me?
Don't you know your husband! They
told me you were dead. I've hunted all
over the world for you and Just found you
were living."
The woman's face was as gray as her
hair. For a moment she stood as one
dazed. Then she threw herself into his
arms and called his name as her husband.
The door closed upon thei.i. whtle neigh
bors ran to spread tho tidings through
the house.

More than thirty-five years ago Alfred '
Welland, then n prosperous lirltlsh resi

Kgypto-Turklsh politics. He was Intimate
with Oiman Pasha, the Turkish Oenernl,
and enlisted In the Turkish army at tho .
outbreak of the Turko-'Itusslan War. Os
man made him an olftcrr and ho marched
away with his command after saying
good-by to his young wife and their in
fant son. mimed Tor his father. 1
At various times letters from tho front
reached the wife who stayed In Cairo,
telling of her husband's continued safety
anil of n further promotion. Then for
a long period no news came. '
In 1877 tho rumor swept through!
EgJPt that a terrible battle had been
fought at Plevna nnd that thousands had
been, killed and wounded. Official des
patches confirmed this and the list of
the dead contained the naino of Capt. Al
fred Welland.
The wife was broken hearted. She
was fairly well to do and had no cause :
' worry on that account, but th loss j.

After n year Mrs. Welland sold her
homo In Cairo and with her young son
left the country. She went first to Aus
tralia, travelled thero for a while and
finally came to the United States, settling
in Ntw York. Her son grew up and some
,-cars ago ho married and went to live In
Boston, where business called him. His
mother continued to make her home here
and for some time 'has had an apnrtment
In Williamsburg. Sho had for years been

Tile scene now changes to Cairo. Two
years after the battle of Plevna thero I
came falterlngly back to that city a worn.
emaciated veteran of the war. It was I
Alfred Welland. who had been left for
dead upon the battle field and had fallen
a prisoner to the enemy. When the Turk
ish relief corps went over the scene later
they found a body that, thougii mutilated
by shot, wan Identified as that of Wel

The war ended and tho Itusslan prisons
gave up their captives. Among them waa
Welland. Slowly he made his way to his
home. It was In strangers' hand His
