, It doubtless was the most critical po

his death sentence iu January. Prom
the time he confessed to the murder
of his former sweetheart, who stood in

a ttndin-r. that the prisoner was-mentally

commission includes Dr. Henry Jiust
Stcdman. chairman . of . tho board of
trustees of tho Taunton insane hospi

Henrv P. Frost, superintendent of the

hours with Richeson at tho Charles

The examination today was in the

Rev. George Chalmers Richmond,
rector of St. John's' Episcopal
church, forgetting the world
accepted proverb "Dc uiortuis nil

sermon. His remarks in the criticism
of tho Astor will are of public inter
est in connection with the criticisms
which have been made throughout the
country during tho last. week. In this
respect Dr. Richmond had this to aay:
""Wc aro ' filled with a patriotic
shamo uftcr reading tho will of John
Jacob Astor. -Ho was a man of great
wealth and aa such' he stands forth ut
the bar of justice and the Christian
conscience of . the American people.
What our American multimillionaire
must remember is this: That if ho ex
pects to shine in glory hereafter ho
must reveal certain traits of the ideal
to us who aro his contemporaries.
Compares Two Wills.
'What a difference between tliis
will and that of Dr. Francis Bacon, the
great surgeon of Yale, who died last
month. Tie was a poor boy. Through
toil and skill in handling his small in
come he loft an estate of $400,000. Of
this $100,000 goes to a tuberculosis in
stitution. A few thousands go to other
cciunllv worthy movements and the resi
due to help poor boys through Yale.
Oh, how murh greater is such a man
than Astor!
"No nmu ought to be able to loavo
more than $2000 at most, after giving
away generuos sums to religion, edu
cation and charity. AVc must so order
our laws that such estates as Astor 's
would be impossible in tho future.
America is no place for multimillion
aires. Wo are a nation set in the uni
verse for the building up of God's
kingdom of love and righteousness.
Should Limit For.unes.
''We need to look ahead and make
laws which will prevent fortunes like
this from roaching such a high figure.
It is a dingrnco to leave a fortune of
450,000,000 in these dnya. Tho state
must stop in and settle this question
or some day wo shall have a congress
practically socialistic in both houses.
And then wo shall sec what property is
worth in tho eyes of our masses of

MANSION THROWN OPEN
Western Friends of President
of Salt' Lake Road Are
Royally Entertained.
Special to The Tribune.
N12W" YORK, May 12. Preparatory to
closlnsr hia Fifth avenue mansion here for
the summer, Senator Y. A. Clark enter
tained yesterday a large number of his
far western friends, who are members of
the Stanford University club of New
York. During the afternoon discussion
centered largely upon problems of far
western development iu their relationship
to tho eastern market. Isaac T, Ttussell,
formerly of Salt Lake City who, with Mrs,
Russell, was amonp the pucsts, spoke of
tho service the Clark railroad ha render
ed to southern Utah and of the new era It
had brought to that part of the country
as well as to California. The hope of the
Commercial club of Salt Lake to se tho
iron ore of their country brought Into
practical use was mentioned and this
brought Sonutor Clark to his feet.
Ready to Co-operate.
"There has been some criticism here,"
he said, "of tho eastern coldness of con
tact, but that is not a part of the west
ern spirit. Wo people of the west can
speak each other's languago so you will
understand mo when I sa.y I want to
co-operate in every way with ervory good
cause ln the west that makes for tho up
building of the country. That's tho debt
wc owe that country. '
"Now nbout that Iron or ln Utah.. ,
You let any body of men step forward
and show a disposition to mlno that'
ore and I will step forward and 'put the '
railroad down there so It can be done.
Wc will he as quick as the first move
ment towards mining the ore to get
there.
Possibilities Great.
"I hope this encourages men to go
to work on thut problem for the possi
bilities are surely great and what I say
applies to all the country along tho rail
road from Salt Lake to L.os Angeles.
Wo want to sec It teeming with pro
ductivity ii.nd wealth, and we statid ready
all the tlmo to put our rails wherever
they will be of service and will do a
real good."
Senator Clark, closed his house when
IiIb guests left. lie will lenvu this week
for a long tour of the, west, Includ
ing Arizona, where he will spend con
siderable time. The music rendered by
Senator Clark's art gallery organ during
his final "at home" was largely com
posed of tunes familiar to the Stanford
university campus, as Scott Brooks. Sen
ator Clark's organist, was organist at
tho Stanford memorial chapel boforo the
carthquako of 190G shook it do.wn.

General Huerta Believes His
Forces Will Surround the J
Retreating Army sj
OROZCO VACATES CONEJOS;
PLANS FIGHT AT RELLANO j
Five Hundred of His Men Slain; M
Two Generals Missing; All
His Cannon Captured
AT THE FEDERAL FRONT.. CONEJOS, Mexico, "May 12.
Twelve hours' of brisk fighting on the desert plains 300 miles t
south of the American border, between a force of 5000 rebels
under General Orozco and an equal body of federals under General ( '
Huerta resulted today in a decided advantage to the federals.
The fighting began at daybreak and at nightfall the sandy mesas
'between here and Yernio, fourteen miles south, where the insurrectos
Avcre gradually forced back, were covered with dead and wounded.
Nearly 500 are believed to have been killed and wounded on both
sides.. A courier brought the information that C4eneral Trucy Aubert,
the dashing federal commander, had been shot in the .leg.
The rebelsabandoned ten, cannonandmuch ammunition in their
retreat.
General JoaqmnTellez, who had been stationed in the rear of
Huerta 's vanguard,-at noon was sent around to the eastward to flank .'??
the rebels and cut off their retreat. Tonight federal headquarters
claim the rebels are completely surrounded and that the second day I
ox fighting will prove equally decisive.
FEDERALS ENTER CORRJEJOS -l
This town, only yesterday occupied by the vanguard of the rebels, i .
was riddled with bullets when the federals galloped into it at sun-
set. Over the foothills to the north the insurrectos could be seen re- .
treating. '
General Huerta has been receiving many telegrams of eongratu-
lation on the outcome of the day's fighting. Should the advantage
gained today be followed by equal success tomorrow the federal :-. J
leaders are confident it will mean the annihilation of the insurrecto
army. . '.
General Huerta considers it probable, however, that the rebels
will make their last stand at Escalon, their central base, fourteen :-
miles to the north, where they have built fortifications and trenchc-s ..
i: the last fortnight. . !
ARTILLERY FIRE WINS FIGHT '
It was the steady artillery fire of the government troops that dis
lodged the enemy. The sun beat down fiercely on the plains, but tha v'
air was clear. The aim of tho federal gunners was true. They began
to shell the rebel positions at daybreak. For a time the insurrectos
fired in volleys and seven federal officers were wounded. For only a
few hours, however, they withstood the fierce cannonading and then
began to evacuate their positions. General Tellez arrived at night- j
fall with a detachment of 1500 men in the valley behind Conejos, i.
where the vanguard of rebels gathered. It seems likely that unless .
the rebels continue to fight desperately a large number of prisoners ' ,
will be taken when dawn breaks tomorrow.
As they retreated the rebels destroyed a number of bridges, but '
the federals are equipped with pontoons and will not be seriously af- i; .
fectd by the hindrance. '-j;.
Enthusiasm in the federal camp is great. In fact news was re- '.
ceived here from Torreon that the victory was being celebrated with ; t
music and parades. -j
GENERAL HUERTA IS HAPPY
General Huerta talked enthusiastically of the fight. $
".After twelve hours of fighting today," be said, "my troops
took the positions of the rebels by storming. The artillery fire was
superb. My forces, filled with enthusiasm, have onco more shown
the power of the government and they covered themselves with glory. ' r-
,:Wc caplured from the enemy ten cannon and wagons with ' .
many hand bombs of dynamite. The enemy retreated in precipitate
flight toward the north, where part of my men executed violently a "
movement, which nearly annihilated them. j.
"Those who escaped burned bridges and a train with twenty
cars of provisions was destroyed. These ears and five bridges arc '','
still on fire. JS
"Three trains of reinforcements arrived for the rebels during the $$JJ
fight, but the heavy artillery fire from our batteries prevented theai
from detraining. -.Njj
"Up to now, 10 p. m., I have had no time to go over the battle
ground. T have information, however, that the dead will number &M
more than fh'e hundred.
"On our part we had an almost negligible loss, except that, un- ;.j5fyj
fortunately, General Trucy Aubert is slightly wounded iu one foot. .' i''
