TOWER OF BABEL.
If the people on tho Pike alone were to
v he assembled In convention, they would
'put tho Tower of Babel incident In second
v !pce.
And the human family hasn't a monop
oly on living exhibit, either. Thq World's

Is worth while.
If he decides adv ersely, then the World's
Fair promoters believe that there la some-

5.1 Those who have studied tho World's
t Fair studied Its conception and construc
tionlook upon Its outdoor display as the
il greatest Idea of Its builders.
- MANr peoples. . -
The builders of the Fair have acted
3 on the theory that nothing is more Inter
esting to man than man himself. It was
easy to Induce people from foreign lands
io come to tne norms J? air, tor we lor
oignors wero anxious to see the people
Mho wero anxious to see them.
Tho greatest treat afforded a man In
a, trip around tho world is in the people
that he meets. The World's Fair beats
a trip around tho world, for It goes all
over the world, not only around It.
One can begin with the Tyrolean sing
ers In tho Alps, go over to the Irish
if " village and see tho colleens and the gos
soons, step across the street to Akoun's
.Mysterious Asia and see tho people of
Burmah. Hlndoostan, Turkey.la.A8la, ror-
1 ela and .lArabla; then go to the Streets

DEFIES COURT
Lawyer Declares He Is Prevented
From Answering Questions by
Masonic Oath.
KEPtmuc SrECIAL.
New Tork, April 9 Members of the
Masonic order in this city have been sur
prised and not a little amused by the no
tion of Eugene L. Ashley of Glens Falls,
N. T., who, according to a dispatch pub
lished In the newspapers, has defied the
court by refusing to reveal what he has
taken a Masonic oath to keep secret. Mr.
Ashley, who is president of the Hudson
River Water Power Company, a lawyer of
proniinenco up- the State and also a Mason,
was one of several attorneys for William
Moore, now dead.
In his last will, made two' days before
he died, lost) November, Mr. Moore left an
estate of about 2390,000, divided practically
between three members of his family.. In
addition he left to his grandson his Inter
est in the "William Van .Rensselaer es
tate." which he believed to be worth about
$300,000. Mr. Ashley was ono of the execu
tors under Mr. Moore's first will. H. P.
King, the executor named In the new will,
has been unable to get the slightest trace
of the Van Rensselaer estate, even as to
Its location.
FINED FOR REFUSAL.
'When Mr. Ashley before Surrogate Jen
kins refused to divulge any of the infor
mation given to him by Mr. Moore, on the
ground that he w"ou!d be violating the con
fidential relationship existing between
counsel and client, and that he had taken
the Masonic oath not to divulge any of
the facts concerning the Van Rensselaer
"matter, the Surrogate fined him tfCO.
The fact that Mr. Ashley has placed the
Masonic oath above the law has brought
him much criticism among members of
the Masonic order, who do not hesitate to
ssy ho is overstepping any law or privi
lege existing in the order. It Is an inter-esrinr-fact
In this connection that Surro
gate, Jenkins Is a Mason and Mr. King is
a past district deputy grand master In the
order.
t RAT IT IS RIDICULOUS.
Lawyers who have read of the remark
able stand taken by Mr. Ashley brand It
as ridiculous, and sav that the man will
urelv go to Jail, despite his Masonic oath,
unless he answers the Surrogate's ques
tions. If there were such an oaUi. they
declare, it would not be recognized by any
court, and no sensible person would think
otherwise.
Elbert Crandall, grand master, of the
State, who Is also a lawyer, when asked
about Mr. Ashley's contention at his office.
No. 115 Broadway, said:
"I do not care to say anything about It
except that it Is a matter which has noth
ing to do with Masonry. There is notblng
in Masonry to Justify a man in refusing to
answer any proper questions propounded
to him."
E. M. L. Ehlers, grand secretary of the
Masonic order in the State, was no less
outspoken, declaring that Masonry cannot
and does not bind a man to do anything
unlawful by an oath.
"A.court decree always comes ahead of
a Masonic oath." ho added, "and it Is non
sense for a man to try to dodge behind
such a subterfuge. If Mr. Ashley refuses
to obey the legal order of the court he
will have to go to Jail.. That Is all there
is to the question."
OATH NOT BINDING.
A well-known corporation lawyer, when
questioned on the matter, sold that Mr.
As'hleJ- did not have a leg to stand upon.
"There Is no oath, religious or fraternal,
recognized In law as binding." he said.
"The fact that a man gives a Masonic
oath does not give him the shadow of a
right to refuse to give Information about
a will. Such an oath is no more recognized
In law than a rabbinical divorce. Mr. Ash
ley has no legal ground to refuse the In
formation desired on the ground that it
was privileged, being a matter between
counsel and client, for It is a misdemeanor
to conceal anything about a will."
Frederick B. House, a lawyer and Ma
son, also says Mr. Ashley cannot evade
the court's questions by a Masonic oath.
The law recognizes no such oath, he de
clares, and. besides, he sayB there Is no
Masonic oath that Justifies a man In re
fusing) to obey a court order. As to Mr.
Ashley's refusal to answer certain ques
tions on the ground that what had passed
between him and his client was confiden
tial and privileged, Mr. ' House said he
could not give an opinion, as Jie was not
familiar with the case and such questions
wero often of a delicate nature, depending
entirely upon circumstances.
SEES SON CRUSHED TO DEATH.
Stricken Mother' Carries Body
Home Through Busy Street.
REPUBLIC SPECIAL.
New York. April 9. Before the horrified
eyes of his mother, little Joseph Plezzo,
a 4-year-old lad. was run down cnl killed

ter with a group of children on irto ether
sld of the street. He ran across the
street, and. without noticing tfe wagon,
struck and fell beneath pne of the rar
wheels. He was crushed to death In
stantly, a ringing scream from r.ls lips as
the wheel pawed over his head being the
only signal of his suffering.
A score of women msh3d Into the street,
stopping the wagon and R'moar mobbirp
the driver. The heartbroken mother l-lostd

In her arms and carried It to her home at
