What is An drew Carnegie going to do with his fortune of nearly one billion dollars when he dies? Edward M. Bigclow knows, but he won't tell. Mr. Blgelow recently returned from a trip to New York, where he had a heart-to-heart talk with the laird of Sklbo. Mr. Blgelow, who was for merly a director of public works of Pittsburg and who has done more than any one else in providing the city beautiful parks, has been close to Mr. Carnegie for years. Mr. Carnegie introduced the sub ject of the disposal of his fortune after he was gone. He showed Mr. Bigelow his will, which has been drawn recently, but pledged him not to reveal any of Its contents until he Is dead. That the provisions of the docu ment are unique and that it pro vides for the expenditure of many millions for philanthropic purposes Is admitted by Mr. Blgelow. Pittsburg, upon which Mr. Carnegie has already spent something over I20.000.0UO, omes in for another big slice.

The encyclical is sued yesterday by the Pope seeming ly puts an end to the hopes of the moderates of all shades of opinion that the church eventually would accommodate itself to the new condi tions In France. There la not the faintest suggestion that the French bishops will not obey the orders from Home. The consequences are likely to be deplorable from every point of view. The majority of the clergy and the Catholics generally recognixe that practically there Is no chance for the church to emerge victorious from the struggle. On the contrary, the lot of the church will be harder. Even Juarez, the socialist leader, refers re gretfully to the consequences which the papal encyclical will entail. He says: "The Pope desires to save dog ma and hierarchy. In reality he Is preparing their ruin. Attlla was the scourge of God; Pius X is the scourge of the church."

SEVENTH ANNUAL AUTO SHOW OPENED IN THE SQUARE Altogether New and Novel Decorative Scheme Greet ed Assembled Throngs. SHOW IS ONE OF GREAT SOCIETY EVENTS OF DAY New York, Jan. 12. An utterly new precedent for superb decorative schemes was set today when the doors of the Madison ivquara Garden opened for the seventh annual Nation al Automobile show, which will re main open until the night of the 19th. Not even at the automobile salon at Paris, or in any foreign cap! tal, has there ever been attempted anything like such an elaborate and artistic creation for a show. More than $50,000 has been spent In pre paring, the setting for the exhibits with the result that the Interior of the garden presents a scene of dazzl 4 I.'.. .. .. i .. k rut. i . . i privileged to' Bee some details of the preparations were astouned at their scope even through forewarned by the general statement about grand eur and expense, it la almost ua belleveable that so much elaboration ever would bo entered upon for an automobile show; it was more on the scale of preparations for the receptions of some national hero such as that given in this city for Admiral Dewey on his return from the Philippines. The motor cars have attracted their usual following of the public but apart from them the scenic surroundings are worth a long trip to every lover of a gorge ous spectacle. The coloring Is so varied and harmoniously distributed as to elude description In black and white, but some Idea of the ensemble can be had by those who can picture a palatini Swiss garden In the late fall or early winter. Beneath an amber sky, spangled with pale sil very stars blink a good night to the sinking sun, or the mellow and flaming glories of autumnel foliage are playing hide and seek about rustic arbors, and the coloring Is re flected upon pure white Btatuary and in plushing fountains; the green sward of the garden Is delicately flecked in white by the first desultory flakes of ii snow furry sent to tell that winter Is at hand. In the per spective, on all sides. Is Alpine scen ery with hamlets snuggling between snowy peaks and mountain lakes gleaming In the lingering, refracted rays of the sunset hour. Last year the decorative plan was to represent an Italian garden In summer time, with classic cornices about and a color scheme of white and gold. That was tine, but very cheap com pared with todays exhibition. For todays show more than $0,000 were expended alone in getting good de signs and according to Mr. Bell, the official decorator, who made a tour through Europe the lutest ideas have been adopted. Overland, the iron girders of the big showhouse are concealed by a canopy of amber hue, straded with 37,000 silver stars. The whole floor is covered with a special ly woven green carpet, with streaks and dots here and there to carry out the snow motif. The side walls of the main floor and platform ore con cealed by paintings designed to per fect the illusion of an Alpine per spective, and at the Fourth avenue end there is a huge canvass painted by a well known scenic artist de picting a mid-winter scene. In front of the pillars which support the gal leries there are heroic statues on pedestals, eight on each side. One figure represents the "Goddess of the Show," another Is a winged mercury designed in Paris. These two figures are posed alternately along the sides. At either end of the bund stand is another heroic figure repre senting "Triumph." Near the Madi son avenue entrance Is a great foun tain, twenty feet across the base and eight feet in height. It has three basins and Its several Jets are Illumi nated by various colored lights. The spirit of the fountain Is a nympn, holding a dolphin, and on the rim of the buttl are sea urchins pouring lihallons from water vessels held In their hands. On each side tit the fountain are allegorical statues of heroic size having a background of natural plants and foliage, 'his fountain Is a piece of work worthy of permanency for It contains some of the best thought of the urtlst who designed It. Stretching down through the centre of the garden, over the snow flecked verdure Is a rustic ar bor made of white birch. It is in tertwined with autumn foils ith -' , , -?

Washington, D. C, Jan. 1 2. There Is another row on In Panama canal circles. ; The rumpus is between the chair man of the canal commission and the chief engineer, and It may lead to the resignation of Chairman Theo. Shonts or of Engineer John F. Ste vens. At present the two are work ing together under a truce patched up by President Rooserelt. Matters did not come to on open rupture until Immediately after j President Roosevelt's departure from j the strip. It will be recalled that the president's visit was followed by some reforms In the way of a reor ganisation of some of the depart ments and a straightening out of several questions of - Jurisdiction. Briefly stated .what the president did was to divide all the canal adminis tration Into seven executive depart ments, and to order that all these de partments report directly to Mr. Shonts, who. In addition, was given the authority to hire or fire in them. The effect of this was to reduce the chief engineer, from being second in xuthorlty to the chairman, to a plane with seven other department chiefs. He had formerly been in supreme control of all canal work matters In the absence of Chairman Shonts, and when the latter was on the strip was his chief lieutenant. The new order stripped him of all these extraordi nary powers. In company with six other officials he was presented on the day of the president's departure with a general order from the chairman defining Just what his authority would in the future be. The story of whnt occurred has Just reached Washington. There was an Interview between Stevens and Shonts which recalls the historic In terview between Taft and Wallace. The chief difference was that Stevens used the strong language. "Damned Incompetents was a term applied to Borne of Mr. Shonts' assistants and staff. ' As for taking orders from them and having to have his work subjected - to them, Mr. Stevens would havu none of it. and said so plainly. . . - ' Mr. Shonts and Mr. Stevens trav eled Immediately to the states. But they traveled by different boats. Mr. Shonts had the president's ear first Then Stevens had an Interview. Just what occurred at the White House is not known. It Is under stood thnt Mr. Stevens tendered his resignation, telling the president that he did not propose to be respon Bible for work whicli he did not have a. free hnnd to perform. It Is said that Mr. Stevens recalled to Presl dent Roosevelt certain promises which ' the latter had made to him when he 'took the position as successor to Wal- lace, promises that he should not be hampered by unnecessary rea tape, and that he should have all tne au ' thorlty needed to carry on the work with energy and expedition. All that is known as to the presl lint's talk Is the result. Mr. Ste vens nromised to go back to the Isth mus and give the new system a trial. All the same Mr. Stevens Is known to be in a resignation mood, and his relations with his nominal chief. Chairman Shonts, are not cordial. At this distance it looks as If one or otn er would have to go. REPORT ON DAIRY PRO DUCTS !' WASHINGTON Olvmola. Jan. 12 State Dairy and Food Inspector L. Davies In his report published today states that an uggregate value of $5,000,000 was the output of the dairy industries of the state for the past year but this does not include the output of 155 cream eries for 1906 the re ports from which have not yet been received. Butter manufactured In the state during the past year aggregated 8,000,000 pounds,, an increaso of about 400,000 pounds over the previous year, but reports from creameries have yet to come and Inspector Davies calculates that the total will amount to 9,500, 000 pounds. In the last two years condensed milk valued at $1,000,000 was shipped from Puget Sound and $600,000 worth from Alaska, but as yet the industry is only In its infancy. vari-colored electric bulbs sclnlilallng among it. The sturways from the floor to the elevated platform are also of rustic work and several car loads of white birch were brought from the Adrondacks and the Maine forests for the work. Tho central rustic tower is a masterpiece, in that It combines the maximum of attrac tiveness with the minimum exac tions upon the valuable floor spate. The arbor has a sloping roof that Is supported solely by pillars rising to the peak and at the ground the pil lars are the stanchions of rustic seats. The general picture Is not marred by any visible railings as those on the elevated platform are concealed by artx noveau paintings. Introduced so as not to have too much mountain scenery.

Says Shontz. DEMOCRATS FAVOR CHAMP CLRRK ASJHEIR LEADER Revenue Commissioner Yerkes Denies He Is Unfavorable to De natured Alcohol Production. Washington, D. C, Jan. 12. The Isthmian Canal commission today will open , bids of private contractors for the completion of the Panama canal. In the opinion, of Chairman Shonts, It is the greatest task of mod ern times and is in the highest degree exceptional in the magnitude and complexity of the enterprise. The basis on which the contract will be awarded Is the per centage of cost for completing the work. Bidders are required to accompany their proposals with a certified check of 1200,000, and the successful bidder Is required to give bond in the sum of $2,000,000 to protect the govern ment from losses. The government expressly reserves to itself the con trol of sanitation, of engineering and of the department of subsistence and quarters, as they are directly con nected with the henlth and well be ing of the canal employes. The right of rigid supervision Is also retained. "In no event, said Shonts, "enn any contractor be allowed to make these departments an Independent source of profit." Only Four Bids Made. W. J. Oliver of Nashville, Tenn., and Anson M. Bangs of New York, associated together, were the lowest bidders for the construction of the canal. Proposed work for 6.75 per centum upon estimated cost. Four proposals only were received. The others bids were 7.19 per centum by George Pierce & Co,; 12.5 per centum by the Macrthur Gillespie company, 28 ner cel'itum bv the North Ameri can Dredging Company. Oliver & Bangs, the lowest bidders, have had much experience In contracting work. Oliver la one of the largest railroad contractors in America and at pres ent Is engaged In tunneling Lookout Mountain and other extensive works. Bangs was contractor for the Soo Canal locks. CHAMP CLARK WILL TAKE LEADERSHIP FROM WILLIAMS Chicago, Jan. 12. A dispatch to the Tribune from Washington, says: There Is to be a great revolution in the democratic political campaign. Pledges have been given which insure the election of Champ Clark of Mis souri as democratic leader In the house and the party candidate for speaker in the place of John Sharp Williams of Mississippi, the present leader. The friends of Williams do not yet give up the fight but there Is every reason to believe that pledges for Clark now constitute a clear majority of the caucus. The change Is of lm portance because It involves a great deal In the way of presidential poll tics, as a democratic leader Is not to be chosen until next December, or the beginning of the campnlgn for noml nation to the next presidential con ventlon.

He gave recognition ' to Booker T. Washington in a social way. He did It, knowing he was (lying In the face of caste feeling among 17,000.000 of southern white and against the same feeling of two thirds or three-fourths of the north ern people. He understands neither negro nor the deep and vital charac ter of the Issue Involved.
