Courts Compel Her to Use Money as the Will DirectedNow a Bankrupt. New York, Nov. 13.Practically re duc ed to poverty because the courts in sisted on her spending her money to build her husband a monument, Mrs. Elizabeth Weisen has been compelled to file a petition in bankruptcy. Her liabilities are placed at $42,947. with no available assets. When her husband, a wealthy resi dent of the Bronx, died two years ago, it was generally thought that Mrs. Weisen would be able to live the re mainder of her life in peace and com fort. But when his will was opened it was found he had decreed that a magnificent monument, for which he had plans drawn, be erected for him self and his wife in Woodlawn ceme tery. Whether he had overestimated his wealth or underestimated the cost of the monument is a matter of doubt. But it was found that the estate would not only be eat en up, but the widow's own resources taxed heavily to carry out his wishes. Mrs. Weisen appealed to the courts, but it was decided that so far as his estate was capable of beari ng the ex pense, for wishes must be carried out. The monument, one of the finest in Woodlawn, has been built and Mrs. Weisen is now worse than penniless. t t other countries. The other, by Mr* Williams, the minority floor leader, abolished, the differen tial on refined sugar. A rule will likely be reported Mon day requiring a vote, without oppor tunity for amendment, at 4 p. m. Thursday. The report say s: The bill is necessary to give effect to the convention providing for reciprocal trade between this country and Cuba. This results not merely because the con vention Itself provides that it "shall not take effect until the same shall have been approved by the congress," but because the constitution gives no power to the president and the senate to make a con vention or treaty changing the rates of revenue. That power now is expressly lodged in the congress. The records of 'congress abound with unrefuted argu ments on the affirmative of this conten tion, and the practice*- df congress Tias been uniformly in the same direction. The- president has deemed the subject of sufficient important to convene" ah extraordinary session of, congress in or der that the. convention may become ef fective before the commencement of the harvest of the new sugar crop in De cember. This legislation will result in no harm to any American industry. Articles, the product of this country, like the articles embraced in this convention now imported from Cuba, receive the very highest io tection of any in the same schedule. The fluty on sugar was placed above the pro tective point for the purpose of revenue. Th house tariff bill provided expressly for a reduction in the interests of recip rocal trade agreement, which it authorized the president to make. The duty on to bacco has for years been much higher than any necessity required on account of the competition of Cuban tobacco. The reduction in this bill leaves it amply protected. The report closes with an argument Betting forth the advantages to both this country and Cuba which will re ult from the reciprocal arrangement. IMANN A B^v AGAINST WOOD He Is Said to Be Fighting the Battle - y of His Old Friend Rathbone. The Incident May Result in an Open Break Between Senator and President. New York Sun Special Service. Washington, Nov. 18.President Roosevelt is greatly interested in the case of his friend, General Wood, whose nomination to be a brigadier general was' sent to the senate yes terday, and held up in response to the protests filed by Senators Hanna and Teller. The matter will be consid ered by a senatorial committee next Thursday and the administration nat-* urally will exert every influence, in General Wood's favor. The hearing will be public. Acting upon the president's instruc tions Secretary Root has had compiled a long statement of General Wood's services in the army, which, will be sent to the committee. In addition it has been proposed to Secretary Root that he appear in person before the committee and urge the confirmation of General Wood. It is known that the president was particularly anxious to have Secretary Root return from Europe in time to take an active part in the defense of General Wood, and that Mr. Root as sured President Roosevelt before leav i ng for London that he would hasten hi3 return for this purpose and if nec essary would appear before a com mittee. The Rathbone Case. Prominent politicians of both par ties see in the case of Major Estes G. Rathbone, form er superintendent of posts in Cuba, who was disgraced by General Leonard Wood during the letter's administration of affairs in that island, a probable widening of the alleged breach between Senator Han na, the stanch friend of Rathbone, and President Roosevelt, the earnest friend and patron of Wood. Rathbone cheriBhes the most bitter venomous hatr ed for Wood. Friends of Rathbone speak of him as having "camped on Wood's trail" with a characteristic gr im determina tion to give and seek no quarter, many persons believing- that the expose of apparent ly exceedingly intimate and friendly relations between General Wood and the notorious "Captain Bel lairs" in Cuba, largely came about thru the Instrumentality of Rathbone. Hanna, it is claimed, will continue-, to champion the cause of Rathbone, who has never relaxed in his efforts for an investigation of his official acts on the island. ' Major Rathbone is expected in Washington within a few: days, still with the same object in view. Incidentally he may see Hanna, who is fighting Wood's promotio n.

A t the same time a hoodlum elemen t, whose work is disavowed by the strikers, began to gather along the principal crossings. The activity of the strikers and their sympathizers was due to news that the company would make a desperate attempt to start cars with heavny in creased police protection. Unlike yes terday, it was expected that a picked force of police would be aboard each car and.that a heavy detail of patrol men on fo ot would guard the lines, while at poin ts a few squares apart patrol wagons would be stationed. _ Several hundred police and a dozen patrol wagons were massed at the south terminus of one of the main electric lines at Seventy-nin th street and Wentworth avenue early this morning ' and at 6 O'clock the wagons started toward the busi ness district, leavi ng squa ds of police at intervals along the line where trouble was anticipated.
