Smiling Girl Helps Her Boy
Sweetheart Kill Her.
Littltf Brother of Chief Actor Tells
Story of the Bloody Deed.
Youth and Maid in Their Teens,
Schoolday Sweethearts' Put
Quietus on Their Troubles.
NEW TORK, January 25.?The only witness
of the murder was Meyer Schwartz's
nine-year-old brother, Joseph, a queer
with a rorv lortro VioqiI gnrl a whitP
prematurely aged face like that of a withered
old man.
It was Joseph who told the story to the
police, to Coroner Shrady, the reporters and
the hundreds of Jews of the quarter who
stood for Jiours In the cold on the sidewalk
In front of 106 Broome street and listened
to the lamentations and wailing that echoed
and re-echoed in the narrow hallway until
the policemen came up and drove them
away with rough words and a light hand.
The boy talked without tears and in a level
voice, standing in the back room of a cheap
toy shop next door to his home and pocketing
nickels and dimes.
"They are up there on the floor, my
brother Meyer and Bessie," said the boy.
"It is from where the noise of voices and
the crying comes. The coroner, I think he
has been here. As for the police, I do not
know. I do not like the police officer.
Bessie was shot in the mouth, on the right
nf tho mnnth Sho KaM tVio rtiotnl nrhda
my brother shot her. I was there. I saw
It. Then nry brother shot himself."
The toy shop was filled with Yiddish
children, who on coming out of school
stopped first to play around the dead, half
frozen body of a horse In Broome street, an
unfortunate peddler's horse which had
slipped on the ice, broken its leg and was
shot where it fell.
News of the greater happening drew
them toward the tenement house at 105,
and for a while, until the policeman drove
them away, they stormed up and down
the stairs, peering through a crack in the
door into the room where the dead lay,
holdine tisrhtlv to one another, llstenine to
the cries of the mourners, until a sudden
movement from within the room or a harsh
voice frightened them and sent them scampering
back down the flights of stairs to the
toy shop where Joseph was monotonously
reciting the story of the tragedy.
Customers Come and Go.
The toy shop man. himself keenly interested,
waited on customers, stopping now
and then to listen to the even voiced Joseph,
or to threaten the children with instant
eviction If they didn't still their clattering
tongues or their restless feet. How could he

the corner? They should hush, Joseph was
"My brother and Bessie were sweethearts.
My brother had a love on Bessie and Bessie
she had a love on Meyer. I should know
it all the time. They wanted to make a
marry, but my father he talk with Meyer
and say they cannot make a marry because
Meyer is at school yet and Bessie is a child.
Then Bessie's mother she had a talk by her
and. tell Bessie it was a foolishness, and
she should not go with Meyer. My brother
and Bessie make a long talk about it and
he shoots Bessie with a pistol and right
away shoots himself. Meyer is a good boy.
He would not for to make my father mad.
That is all."
Such grownups as were in the toy shop

even the children accepted Joseph's reasoning
without comment, knowing to what
lengths filial obedience may go on the East
Side among a people where the father's
word is the son's law. They were much
more interested in what took place in the
room before Joseph's eyes and the boy
told the story detail by detail. Pieced out
with what the coroner, the police and the
neighbors knew It was this:
Meyer Schwartz was seventeen years old
and a student at the grammar school at
Norfolk an<f Hester streets, a thin, dark,
undersized boy, very quick to learn and a
lover of books. He had made up his mind
to be a lawyer. His father, Philip, makes
shirt waists in a shop in Prince street and
was proud of Meyer's studlousness and
ambition. Some months ago Meyer fell
violently in love with his cousin, Bessie
KJing, who was a year older and lived with
her mother in a tenement at 45 Orchard
street. Bessie was a typewriter, who worka/1
fnr q timo fnr a lnpo-mnkino- ??
T%roadway and Broome street. She was a
comely girl, as much in love with Meyer as
he was with her, the neighbors said.
Parents Refused Consent.
Weeks ago Meyer asked consent to marry
Bessie, but hia father refused consent.
They were first cousins and marriage between
them was an impossibility. He was
too young. Let him become a lawyer first
and it would slill be time to marry. Bessie's
inouier ioia ner sne was 100 young to
marry and that she must not speak again
of marrying her cousin. Meyer's father
asked him to quit paying attentions to the
girl, and Mrs. Kling told Bessie not to go
out with the boy.
A few days ago Meyer bought a cheap
pistol in a second-hand store. I^ast Tuesday
he called on an aunt in Allen street
and asked her to Intercede for him.
"I know Bessie loves me," said the boy.
"She would let me hold a pistol to her
mouth if I asked her to."
Yesterday morning, a little past 10
o'clock, while the elder Schwartz was at
work and Mrs. Schwartz was out marketing,
Meyer brought his sweetheart to his
parous niii, on me iop noor 01 me tsroome
street tenement. Little Joseph was lying
on a bed when they came in.
"Joseph," said the elder brother. "You
must be quiet and stay where you are. 1
will not hurt you, but Bessie and I are tired
of living and we are going to die. I am
going to kill her with this pistol and then 1
am going to kill myself."
"I was not frightened then," said the boy,
telling his story, "because my brother
smiled and Bessie smiled at me, too. I lay
-still on the bed. My brother wrote two
letters and laid them on the table."
These were the letters that Meyer wrote:
To Every One: X beg not to suspect or
blame any human being, because I did It
mvculf PnrAnta anil frlonHa T Koi.? ? u
V.? V-..IU i nave I1UIUfug
to say to you, for 1 die for my sweetest
on earth.
My father did not allow me to go to her,
and her mother did not want her to go to
me. Therefore we go together.
The girl sat down in a chair. Mayer put
the muzzle of the pistol in, her mouth, his
hand shaking, and she steadied the barrel
with her hand.
"And she was smiling," said little Jpseph.
"I saw her."

Jumped off the bed and ran out of the room.
The blood scared him. Before he had time

Yellow Fever Has Been Permanently
Important Propositions Upon Which
Agreement Was Beached?Appeal
to Congress for Legislation.
Written for The Stir and the Chicago RecordHerald.
Theodore P. Shonts was appointed chairman
of the canal commission April 3, 1905,
a little less than two years ago, and began
wuia uumeuutitiiy. since tnen a great
deal more has been accomplished than the
public Is aware of. Most of the time haa
been devoted to preparation that was necessary
before the actual work of construction
could, be carried forward. It was
necessary to create a state and a form of
government to maintain law and order, to
drain one of the most unwholesome swamps
on the earth's surface and redeem one of
the most unhealthy regions, so that human
beings could live and work there. The
mortality attending the construction of the
Panama railroad fifty years ago was appalling,
and it has often been said that
every tie in that tracK represents a human
life. The rails were laid In the midst of
an almost continuous epidemic. During the
twelve years of French construction conditions
were almost as bad. The sacrifice of
life was almost as great, and as unnecessary
as the waste of money, for the De
Lesseps company spent more than $250,000,000
and accomplished practically nothing.
All of Its work has had to be done over.. . .
It Is worth while to review what has been
accomplished during the last two years.
The Panama railway has been practically
rebuilt and double tracked for a considerable
distance. Terminal yards have been
created on both oceans. The rolling stock
and equipment have been increased by 184
locomotives, 3,460 cars, sixty-three steam
shovels, twenty-three earth spreaders,
twenty-two raDid unloaders. seven dredsva.
seventeen steel barges, two tugs, ten cranes
and one pile driver.
The harbors have been dredged and new
wharves have been built with the most
modern machinery, so that the largest ships
can come up to them and be unloaded with
great speed. It is possible to unload the
cargo of a vessel every live days.
Sanitary Improvements.
The city of Panama hae been paved, sewered
and supplied with an abundance of
fresh water. Two years ago it had neither
pavements nor water supply. It was a hotbed
of disease. Today it is the best paved,
the best watered and the best sewered city
between the United States and Chile and
the Argentine Republic.
Colon lias been paved with vitrified brick
ana crusnea rocK, ana nas been made as
healthy as Its low location will permit.
Colon has been given a reservoir containing
508,000,000 gallons of fresh water.
Yellow fever lias been d<-,'">n nerrnin^ntiy
from the isthmus. That, Mr. dhonts thinks
ifl the supreme achievement; tor ourieen
months there has not been a single case
among the 30,000 employes.
The mosquito pest is being rapidly exterminated.
The canal zone ie as healthy as New York
city. During the most unhealthy period of
the year l'JOtt , in the rainy season, August,
September and October, there was not one
. dpath from dispnnp amnno- t.Ko ?
Americans, Including 1,200 women and
Five towns have been built, one of them
having a population of 5 000 inhabitants,
with every modern improvement. It stands
where a year and a half ago was an impenetrable
In each of these towns are club houses,
recreation buildings, libraries, buildings
available for religious services, mess halls
where the employes of the government may
take their meals at cost prices, comfortable
barracks in which they sleep, and
comfortable houses for the accommodation
of families.
Immense Construotion Plant.
The greatest construction plant ever known
has been created at a cost of $12,000,000.
Every piece of machinery, every locomotive
and car, every labor-savin* cnntrivnnn?
had to be set up and tested In this country,
then taken apart, transported 2,000
miles by sea and set up again before it
could be put to use. To do this vast machine
shops had to be erected, equipped
with all forms of modern appliances and
several thousand machinists employed.
Every foot of lumber, every tool, every
nail, every pound of paint, every bit of
plumbing material, every piece of furniture
and almost every article that Is In use on
the Isthmus by those who are digging the
canal had to be brought 2,000 miles.
Nearly every ounce of food consumed in
the canal zone during these two years has
been carried from the United Stales In refrigerator
steamers and distributed by them
along the line of the canal daily from refrigerator
cars. In the mess house meals
are furnished to the higher grades of employes
at 30 cents each and to the common
laborers at 10 cents each. Recentlv iimu
ever, the government has undertaken as
a sanitary precaution to board the common
laborers, and is furnishing: them three hot
meals of nourishing food per day. Chief Engineer
Stevens believes that this will Increase
their efficiency, and Dr. Gorgas is
confident that it will increase their power
to withstand disease.
Up to the 1st of January, 1007, $32,000,000
had been spent, $4,900,000 in sanitation and
the establishment of a government, $7,000,000
in the construction of quarters and other
buildings, railways, docks, wharves, waterworks,
etc.; $12,000,000 in permanent machinery
and construction plant, $4,500,000
In material and supplies, and $1,500,000 In
sewers, waterworks, paving and other Improvements
in Panama and Colon, which
will be ultimately refunded to the govern
The Foreign Commerce Convention.
Many people think that the convention
which met here last week to discuss ways
and means for extending the foreign commerce
of the United States was the most
effective gathering that has been held In
this city for years. It certainly accomplished
several important results. We have
many conventions In Washington, but most
or tnem end in talk. The foreign commerce'
convention brought more than 800
delegates from every state, territory and
Insular possession, and most of them were
substantial business men. Notable addresses
were delivered by President Roosevelt,
Secretary Root, Secretary Straus,
Speaker Cannon and others. The most
notable Incident was the indorsement of
the European plan of customs tariff with
maximum and minimum rates by the President,
Secretary Root and Speaker Cannon.
Secretary Root is an earnest tarirf reformer.
Speaker Cannon is an extreme
"standpatter," and yet both declared in
favor of that method of dealing with our
foreign commerce; to offer low rates to
countries that are willing to make us concessions
and to Impose a different and
higher scale of duties upon Imports from
those that are not. It seems entirely probable
that if Congress ever undertakes to
revise the tariff It will be done on that
basis, which is both fair and scientific.
The committee on resolutions, of which
Fraud* B. Loomls, recently assistant secretary
of state, was chairman, presented a
very important report, with recommendations
which were almost unanimously
adopted by the convention. There were
several lively debates. The assembly was
composed of thinking men who have knowl
ease ana opinions, una mey Knew what I
tuey wanted to Indorse and why Miey I
wanted to Indorse it. But, although dlf- [
ferine about terms and details, they got I

together on the main propositions, which
were as follows:
Propositions Agreed Upon.
1. Asking Congress to give the President
power to make reciprocity arrangements
with other countries which shall include
many articles not mentioned as being Dingley
z. calling tne attention or congress 10
the Imperative necessity of doing something
to encourage our merchant marine, and advocating
postal and naval reserve payments
for lines of steamers to Central and
South America and to the orient.
3. Asking the Senate to ratify the Santo
Domingo treaty in order to promote peace
and prosperity in that island; to increase
its trade with the United States and to
avoid European complications.
4. Asking Congress to purchase the forests
of the Appalachian mountains in western
North Carolina and eastern Tennessee,
to preserve a water supply that Is absolnt*1v
imnprotivo t r? tho fntiirA nrnsnAritv
and industrial development of those and
neighboring states, and to create a forest
reserve that shall be forever a playground
and a health resort for the American people.
5. Asking Congress to grant a national
charter to complete an intercontinental
railway and fill the gaps in Central and
South America, so as to establish an allrail
connection from New York to Buenos
6. Asking Congress to charter a banking
institution with headquarters in the United
States and branches throughout all LatinAmerica,
in order to promote trade and
ff-fvp thA anr] msiniifactiirprs of
the United States facilities in banking: and
exchange equal to those enjoyed by Europeans.
7. Asking Congress to enact legislation
to provide through foreign bills of lading.
8. Favoring the extension of the international
parcels post system for the purpose
of promoting trading by mail between other
countries and the United States.
9. Asking Congress to approve the President's
order of June 27, 1908, placing the
consular service of the United States upon
a permanent merit basis.
10. Calling for greater courtesy and discrimination

A committee of 200 substantial, intelligent
business men carried these resolutions
to the Capitol and presented them to
the Vice President to be laid before the
Senate, and to the Speaker to be laid before
the House of Representatives. Their
appearance produced an unusual and potent
impression, and their personal influence,
aside from these formal expressions, will
appear, no doubt, in the future proceedings
of Congress.
Baltimore Association to Improve
Bailroad Facilities.
NEW YORK, January 25?With the determination
to have a great union passenger
station in Baltimore, so that all steam
railroads entering into the city will have
the one central stopping place, the Association
to Improve the Railroad Facilities of
Bautlmore was organized yesterday at a
n + tVtA KniMoro' ovcVian rjta o n n r) a/1
Hireling ai tuc UUIIUCIO vAvii?ugc, uvi-vtiucu
by many leading citizens, who also represented
practically every Improvement association
In the city.
The object of the association was stated
by Mr. E. Stanley Gary of the Municipal
Art Society and the Merchants and Manufacturers'
Association, when he offered a
resolution to the effect that a commission
of representative citizens of Baltimore be
appointed by the mayor and city council
to select the most expert engineers in the
worm 10 prepare puns ior a pruposeu union
station for all roads.
Before offering the resolution, which was
adopted after much discussion in which
many valuable suggestions and views were
expressed by some of those present, Mr.
Gary roundly scored the Pennsylvania and
Baltimore and Ohio railroads for the seemingly
small Interest taken by them when
a plan for a proposed station was submitted
to the presidents of the respective roads.
He said that the roads should be made to
look into the question seriously and that a
commission be appointed whereby the railroads
will be compelled to give their views
as to the feasibility of one great terminal
after the experts employed by the city have
submitted comprehensive plans.
Dealers Promise to Quit Business

sent&tives of these two bodies were field at

Pennsylvania Will Employ Men Up
to Forty Years Old.
PHILADELPHIA. January 25. ? The
Pennsylvania railroad management lias de
elded to change the age limit at which
men may enter the employ of the company
from thirty-five to forty years, and the
stockholders will be asked to approve th?
change at their r mual meeting to be held
In March.
The age limit at which men can enter the
service was fixed when the railroad's pension
plan was adopted. It was found at
that time that the average age at which
men entered the service was twenty-seven
years. It was thought that a minimum
limit of thirty-five years would afford sufficient
margin and permit the retirement of
employes after thirty years' service at the
age of sixty-ftve.
The age limit was soon found to be *
