Rockefeller's fortune was developed in an inquiry here yesterday. In reply to a question, Frederick T. Gates, Mr. Rockefeller's business representative, said: "There have been a great many amusing misstatements on this subject. Several years ago Senator Hoar, in the Senate, credited Mr. Rockefeller with a fortune of $1,000,000,000,000. Quite recently a statement has been made and published widely throughout the country, that his annual Income exceeds $100,000,000. "Now, the facts are that Mr. Rockefeller lias at various times himself authorized a statement that his fortune cannot exceed $230,000,000 to $300,000,000. Furthermore, his income. Instead of being $100,003.000, or anything like it, cannot, In his most prosperous year, have exceeded $15,000,000 to $ 20,000,000. "The public generally la under the impression that he owns a majority of the Standard Oil stock. The fact is that Mr. Rockefeller's holdings of Standard Oil stock are auuui per cent. Found f180,000 on Street. NEW YORK. February 22.?Clerks and members of the firm of Sutro Bros, had an uneasy lime yesterday when they discovered that negotiable railroad and industrial securities to the value of nearly $180000 had been either lost or stolen. The securities were afterward found or returned to the firm. It was announced that the securities were lost in Fine street by a messenger I boy who bad been sent to the transfer offices of several corporations. They were ' picked up by a man whose name the members of the Arm do not know, and he turned them over to a banking house in the same street, which speedily relieved the Sutro firm of anxiety. In the meantime the announcement of the loss had been printed on the tickers, \ and transfer offices were notified of the t numbers of the securities. NEGMEJIDE WIIIS Decision Given in Merrick Prize , Contest at Georgetown. UNIVERSITY SOCIETY DEBATE Restriction of Powers of States, Increase of Federal Supervision. TROPHY A MASSIVE GOLD MEDAL Selection of Best Individual Debater to Be Announced at Annual Commencement. Secretary Root was wrong about enlarging the powers of the central government at the expense of the states, acconHng to the decision arrived at by Georgetown College students in the Merrick debate at Gaston Hall last evening. The debate Is the great annual feature of the Philodemic Society and the question at issue was: "Rpsolvpd. Thnt th#? nnwprs vpstprl hv thf* Constitution in the federal government ' should be enlarged by a restriction of the powers vested in the individual states." The negative side won, the announcement being made by Gen. John C. Black of the f-ivil service commission, who was the chairman of the Judges' committee. The other judges were Representative X Warren Keifer of Ohio and Representative Washington Gardiner of Michigan. The audience, as always at the Merrick debates, was a large one. Both the floor of Gaston Hall and the galleries were crowded by the friends of the debaters and the alumni of the university. There were present some of the former winners of the debate, which has been an Institution of the Philodemic Society since established by Judge Merrick in 1875. The trophy of the debate is a massive gold medal and recognition as the foremost orator and logician of the university. The hall was decprated with flags and below the picture of "Washington at the end of the hall was q, large engraving of Judge Merrick, the founder of the Merrick prize. The winning side was announced after the contest last night, but the winner- of th? medal as the best individual debater will not be announced till the commencement exercises of the university the coming summer. The Speeches. The first speaker for the affirmative was Thomas Aloysius McCann of the class of 1907. He took the position that the growth of the United States, its rise In wealth and importance as a world ' power, have so jUiangfcd the relation tjf the federal to the state governments and the relation of the United States to the rest of the wortd that a change in the Constitution had become imperative. He said the stronger the central government is the more it can do for its people, and he instanced the warnings of both Root and Bryan that the time had come when the central government needs more power in shaping national legislation for the benefit of the whole people. Certain evils have arisen, he said, that can be coped with only by the national govAPnmAnt \f t* *-? n ?v> A * ' ?1 - a us (ouvuv. Auvv-atiii 11CU11CU II1CI11 UHC1I V, Baying he need do little more than refer to tliem as instances where the arm of the national government needs strengthening. The first of these, he said, Is the trust evil. With these gigantic combinations of private capital, he said, the government will have to deal, for if we do not call them to account now we will leave a. larger task on the hands of God at the day of judgment. In showing how the power of the states is inefficient to deal with the trust evil the speaker instanced New York and New Jersey. New York, he said, is the operating ground of the greatest trusts of the country, but though the laws of the state are against them, they get around it very easily I uj uaviiift Iiicu R~^ai i mumce 111 A6W I Jersey, Just arross the river. The individual states, he said, r-an not or will not frame uniform laws dealing with such a subject while the national government can regulate it for all the states If given the chance. T'nlform divorce laws, railroad regulation. [ uniform Insurance laws and the regulation I of child labor are among the other pressi lng necessities of the present situation, the speaker said. And he said that if the neceshi on I By LYMAN F ILil (Copyright, 1903-05. by the Geor PATSY MAGUIRE.

First for the Negative. X A TTTIAV T nclr nf nloaa nf l'JOS was the first speaker in the negative. He said he was loath to refer to the ghastly period of the civil war, but that while that was instanced as a case in which the strong arm of the national government was needed to correct a state evil, the war was really a sectional matter. Sectionalism no longer existed in this country, he said, and there are as many and as devoted adherents of state rights now above Mason and Dixon's line as below it. He said the dual system of state and1 national government is the essential feature of the American government, and! that it is the one thing that with this great and growing country will prevent the republic from sinking into the evils of an unlimited democracy with the attendant evils of a one-man-power government. The centralized government, he contended, is an invitat ion tft'wvrrnntinn ?n/1 ho InotanooA Senate as already tlie stronghold of the money power of the country. It Is easier, he said, to corrupt a closely centralized national government than it Is to reach the scattered governments of the various states. Edward J. Crummey- was the next speaker on the affirmative. He said that '.he extension of interstate commerce had made its regulation by the national government Imperative, and he pointed out that with the change in the conditions of modern life changes In the form of the Constitution are necessary and that the framers Of that document had wisely made provision', for them by the very act of leaving the Constitution open to amendment. Closes the Discussion. Hugh Spalding, the last speaker of the evening, said the Constitution was the outgrowth of centuries of experience In law making, and that the modification of our system into the centralized form of government was only the aim of trie most radical school of unwise politicians. He said the dangers of an extension of federal authority are shown in the recent school episode in San Francisco, and he warned his hearers against allowing the general gov ernment to invade the least rights of the individual states. The debate was followed by a banquet, at which a number of the faculty, all the judges and debaters and many of the graduates of the university were present. MUST STAY IN" ARMY. Judge Refused to Release Enlisted Man Because of Being Under Age. ? vt'wr vAtJir ?? f?f? ? - ? aiutt xv/im, rcMiumy narns Loop* er, eighteen years old, was produced In the United States circuit court yesterday on a writ of habeas corpus got out by his parents. who want to have him released from the army. He was in charge of the receiving officer at Fort Slocum. Judge Hough wanted. ta. koow at first why he could not get a dishonorable discharge. '"He enlisVeS only on February 7, your I honor,'-'- replied the receiving officer, "and the government has gone to the expense of fitting 'him out with clothing and other equipment.' The government only stands to_ lose If we turn out all these men who mahit fraudulent statements as to age when they pp] tat .and- then when th*y are togged out try" to beat It.". , . "I acree With mii " nal/l ih? shall deny 'this motion. The government should not be put to the expense of fixing up those young men and making them fit for use and then have them get off on the plea that they are under age." Cooper swore at the time of enllRtment that he was twenty-three years old, although he was In reality only eighteen. His lawyer said that his parents, who were in court, were each over seventy years of age and depended for their support on the embryo cavalryman. Judge Hough decided, however, that a taste of army service might Improve his memory andi veracity. JAPS ON XUROPATKIN. Oku Denounces General, but Doubts Genuineness of Book. CHICAGO, February 22.?A Tokio dispatch to the Record-Herald says: "Three prominent Japanese officers have been interviewed concerning Gen. Kuropatkin's book on the Russo-Japanese war, a synopsis of which was published a few days ago. "Gen. Oku was scathing in his denuncla iivu ui vicij. ivuiupainui, aim uuuuiku me authenticity of the alleged work, which, he declared, was not a history, but merely a defense of Kuropatkln himself. It was also an unconscious self-Impeachment, showing that the author was lacking- In the first essential of a commander, in that, while recI I ? li-JL-Jj d Morals.' .

The only epithets to apply to-the published denunciations were brasen faced and shameless. Gen. Oku said he could not believe that Gen. Kuropatkin had written so foolishly. "Gen. Nogi, true to his reputation for' taciturnity, merely made the comment that j it was strange that the compilation of such I a volume was permitted. I "Gen. Kodzu said he sympathised with Gen. Kuropatkln. who met with the greatest difficulties. He considered the Russian commander-in-chief to be a master in the art of retreat, as shown at Llaoyang and Mukden, where he exhibited the most consummate skill. Gen. Nodzu doubted the ability of the Japanese to manage a retreat as well. AFTER THEATRICAL TRUST. Managers Create the "Society of Independent Managers.''

BESBNTS SCHURMAN'S REMARKS John Temple Graves Says South Doesn't Meed Rockefeller's Millions. ?ATLANTA, February 22.?President Jacob O. Schurman of Cornell. University was attacked In an editorial ijy Jolin TemDle Graves yesterday afternoon, because ot Schurman's statement that "If the $32,000,000 just given by Rockefeller to education, goes for the civilization of the south It is far from, tainted." Commenting on this statement, Graves says: "The civilization of the south, indeed! Such a sentiment, even from a college president, argues an obtuseness of observation and a narrowness of prejudice w hich In this region of the country would unfit him for the Occupancy of a country school. "This gracious, gentle, charming, wise and accomplished south, please God, is to be civilized, according to Jacob Schurman, by the tainted money of Rockefeller. Why, there are circles of society in the south to which neither the manners nor the culture of Jacob Schurman would admit him upon terms of social equality, and yet, through his nasal twinge and his cold provincial prejudices, he presumes to speak of the millions of a bloated Croesus as being set to the civilization of a land like this. "Sometimes the insolent Ignorance of these arrogant and ill-mannered accidents In and out of the northern educational circles make us angry, but In this Instance they move us to mirth and laughter. * o one who is much acquainted with the personality and uncourteous and the un cultured manners of Jacob Bchurman, 1119 allusion to the south assumes the absurdity of comic opera or a theatrical burlesque."

CONVICTED ON TWO COUNTS Sequel to the Death of Lucien Cones of the Marine Band. NOTICE GIVEN OF AN APPEAI Prisoner's Composure Disappears and She Cries Aloud for Mercy After Beaching Cell. Remaining absolutely 5ilent, as j?!ie die throughout her trial, which closed tw< weeks ago. Mrs. Jennie I* May stood befon Justice Stafford In Criminal Court No. late yesterday afternoon and received th< sentence of the court that for causing th< death of I-uclen Conen, former member o; the Marine Band, she is to spend the nex fen years of her life In the penitentiary at Moundsville, W. Va. A slight droop t< the heretofore erect shoulders, as she obey, ed the command of the court clerk to slanc up to receive sentence, was the only outward Indication of the burden of woe Mrs May carried, and It seemed as If the shock Incident to realization of the fateful import of the judge's words left room for n< other feeling. Mrs. May continued to stand, even aftei the last word had been nronrmneed hv court, and she felt blindly for her cliaii when told to. sit down. A moment latei she obeyed. the summoning touch of on? of the deputies from the marshal's office and walked across the court room, the lasl steps In free air she will take In many a day, and passed Into one of the cells In the basement of the court house. Hei whole attitude, as she bravely suppressed all outward show of emotion before thf many curious eyes In the court, presented a. pathetic, touch to the finale. Once In the cell and before being removed to the jail In the van, however, Mrs. May broke down completely and cried aloud again and again for mercy. Concluding Proceedings. Mis.-May., was brought into court from the Jail, where in default of bail she had been confined since her conviction, it having been agreed her appeal in arrest of judgment and for a new trial should be heard at the conclusion of the regular session of the court in the Hermann case. The prisoner showed plainly the effect of the few days spent in jail. Her face was much palfr than at. ?wiy previous appearance in 'eourt, 'and her features were pinched and strangely sljrunjten. Throughout all the ?0^rt..prpceejJU)gs, even'to the imposition of sentence, MM. 'May kept lier eyes averted. Her husband, Ole J. May, sat beside her <lurjji& the. ordeal. Attorney Creed M. Fulton argued for an arrest of Judgment, claiming tiie jury erred In finding Mrs. May guilty on two courts, the charge of assault with intent to kill and the charge of assault witli a dangerous weapon. He declared the verdict should have been "not guilty" upon the latter count of the indictment. Upon the motion for a new trial Mr. Ful toil created somewhat of a sensation when he stated one of the Jurors, A. P. Sincell, had been heard to say to another juror, "She is a bad woman," and something to the effect, "we won't be out long." Mr. Fulton presented an affidavit to support this point, and offered to produce two witnesses in corroboration. After some little argrument as to the calling of these witnesses. Justice Stafford ruled that they might be heard. William D. Allen, who said he was sales agent for a New York newspaper, testified he was in a lunch room when he heard Mr. Sincell make the remark: "She is a bad woman,'' to another juror. Allen also said he heard the remark, "We won't be out long." Gives the Date. Questioned by the district attorney, witness said the conversation he overheard occurred probably Thursday, the last day, save one, of the May trial. He did; not know whether the "she" referred to meant Mrs. May or not. Charles C. Burrows, a boss painter, also heard the "bail woman" remark, and said the incident occurred Thursday. Attorney Fulton argued the statement by one juror to another and possibly to more members of the jury tended to prejudice the Interests of his client', and for this and several other reasons he made a plea for a new trial. District Attorney Baker and Assistant District Attorney Turner made the point that it was the duty of the attorney for the defense to have Informed the court of the Incident of the juror as soon us he heard of it, and this view was upheld by Justice Stafford, as he overruled both the motions for arrest of judgment and a new trial. District Attorney Baker Immediately moved for imposition of sentence and lie called to the attention of the court that only the fact that ivuolen uonen nappenea to live a few days more than one year presented Mrs. May from having- to answer i charge of murder. Assistant District \ttorney Turner also argued that the assault of which Mrs. May was convicted was }f so deliberate a nature that a severe sentence would best subserve the ends of justice. Final Flea of Defense. Attorney Fulton made a final plea that he defendant be not long separated from ler small children and from her faithful tusband. The sentence of the court was :hen pronounced, and Mr. Fulton noted an ippeal. According to an amendment passed by the ast Congress, April 27, 1906, for the comnutation of sentences at United States >risonertf, the allowance during good belavior for all sentences of ten years and >ver is ten days out of each month. By 'arnlng all of her good behavior allowance, ihould she go to the penitentiary on the >resent sentence, Mrs. May can reduce ler actual time of service in the prison to :ix years, 280 days. The sentence dates rom the tLme of arrival at Moundsville. Texas Gets H. C. Pierce. JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., February 22.? Sov.Folk yesterday afternoon honored the equisltlon of Gov.
