Engineer Stevens Given Free Hand In Construction. Chinese Restriction Death of General Dlackmar Hendricks' Reply to Crit icisms Scandal In Hooker Trial. Race Riot In New York Peary Starts For Pole. Chairman Shouts and Chief Engl neer Stevens lunched with President Roosevelt Friday. This was tho first opportunity the president had had tG discuss canal mutters with Mr. Stev- ens and they went over the subject pretty thoroughly. It can be said that Vr. Stevens has been given practically I free hand to do the construction work of the canal. He has his own ideas about the methods to be pursued und will not be interfered with In the work of his department His desire is to dig the canal and to that great undertaking ho will de vote nil his enercv and ahllltv. leaving the executive und udministrntlve. do ......,. ., tails to he worked out by Chairman Shouts. Governor Magoon und the com mission, After the conference with the Presi dent Chairman Shouts talked frankly about the work of tho commission and 11 bo ut canal conditions. "Just now," he said, "we have about 12,000 nien ut work on the ca nal. That Is about us many as we could employ under the existing con ditlons. We hive our executive staff thoroughly nrganl.ed now but the or ganization has not been coninletcd on the isthmus. That Is a part of the work Mr. Stevens will have to do. His engineering ta(T must ho organized und Its work mapped out "We must make arrangements for the housing, feeding and general care of our employes. In Itself a great task, and we must complete the sanitary ar rangements In the American zone. All this will require time and energy and hard work, hut It will be accomplished successfully. I have about concluded arrangements with a man who is to go to the isthmus to arrange for the re creation of the canal employes. We will have reading rooms, amusement halls nud all that sort of thing, by means of which the men mny pass their idle hours pleasantly and profit ably." "No," continued Chairman Shouts In response to an Inquiry, "the sanitary conditions on the Isthmus are not so bad as they have been reported to be, A lot of people have become fright i ned by (lie yellow fever, but It Is not so bad as might he expected. Reports from the Isthmus regarding health conditions have been grossly exag gerated." Want Less Restriction. President Wheelwright of tho Cham ber of Commerce of Portland, Ore., on behalf of that organ l.at Ion, sent a let ter to President Roosevelt bearing upon the question of Chinese exclus ion. The letter urges President Roosevelt to take "steps toward negotiating a new treaty with China that shall nro- vide for the removal of the exacting conditions that now attach to the en- ranee Into this country of their mer- chants, students and professional men. or the absolute freedom of al! Chin- so residents of this countiy t visit heir own land and return hero, and for the admission during the next ten rears of a number of male Chinese aborers that In any one year shall not exceed one-tenth of one per cent of tho population of this country. American labor has little appre ciation of lis own dignity and power, as well as of Its capabilities for Im- irovement, if it raises objection to such limited Chinese Immigration as that amounting In 10 years t-J less ban I per cent of our population and !ii!s endeavors to deprive tho nation cf this additional minus to Its develop ment, not only in this country, but in tho Hawaiian and Philippine Islands ml Panama." The president Is asked to give pub licity to his intentions in this regard s soon as practicable Japs Met Death Bravely. The story of the loss of the Japanese cruiser Takasago In December last, only published sinco the destruction f Rojestvensky's fleet, is a mllitary classic. After the Takasago struck a mine nnd began to sink, the crew assembled In perfect order on the upper deck, there to await the battle with a i;tormy sea and death. (.iipcilu Islilhashi ordered every lnan to use a life belt, and directed that no one Jump overboard until the hhip actually sank. The crew then Joined in sinking the national anthem cheering the emperor and lastly they fang "Gallant Sailors," their 500 voices ringing out above the storm. After that, as a relaxation, tho men were allowed to smoke, nnd thus they went calmly to their deaths. Of the 500 men who went down with the Takasago only 13:1 were rescued Death of General Blackmar.

Scandal In Hooker Trial. Editor in Chief Erwln Wardman of he New York Press was the storm center of one of the most sensational scenes enacted in the New York plate legislature in many years. His persistent refusal to give the reasons foi his expressed belief that some members of the legislature had been the subject of Improper Influences In connection with the trial of the charges against Supreme Court Jus tice Warren B. Hooker produced in tense excitement and the question of the disposal of his case has entirely oversha lowed In interest here the matter of the charges against Justlco Hooker Race Riot In New York.

Protest Against Jurisdiction of Joint Session In Requiring Attendance. Lawyers Expressed Diverse Opln Ions as to Legal Aspect of Situation. New Subpoena Under Special Form. Albany, July 18. The Joint session of the legislature found itself with a Lew problem Immediately upon con vcnlng last night In the defiance of its subpoena by Managing Editor J. A. Hennessey of the New York Press. The clerk called the name of Editor In Chief Ervln Wardman of the New York Press, whose testimony und re- lusal to answer certain questions last week led t0 lne Present tangle. Mr. vvaraman answered "here." The sergeant-at-arms reported that I ho hnJ . 1.1- , - U " uccu "" " uU poena upon M. O. Scott, nltht editor f the Press. The clerk then' called the nnme f Its managing editor. John A. Hennessey. He did not answer and was noted as in default, whereupon the following communication from him was read: Objects to Jurisdiction. "To the Joint Session of the Senate and Assembly of the State of New York: "The undersigned haviug been served with a subpoena to appear be fore you at the Capitol in the city of Albany, on the 17th day of July, A. D., 1903, at 8:30 o'clock p. m. of that day, then and there to be examined as a wl,ness nnd ,0 testlf' to the truth as York Pres!& Wednesday morning, July iJUJ- ano appearing in column l l)age 01 Si,ld lss,le of "aid. new: ImP" ana neaueu, 'Ulg Lobby tor Jus tiee Hooker; scandal Is thick In Al- ban'' anu directing me to bring with "'e uml Promlce at mat time, neiore ba,a senate ami assembly in joint SPSslon. all original manuscripts of said article, and all copies thereof, any and all telegrams, letters, papers or other documents in any matter re latlng to said article, or the contents and origin thereof and which may pertain to or be required In investiga tion of the said subject hereof, res pectfully objects nnd protests against the jurisdiction assumed by you In Issuing such subpoena and requiring my attendance nnd the production of Eald papers, upon the following grounds. "First, that said Joint session Is or ganized only for the purpose of hear ing the proofs and determinin whether a certain justice of the su prenie court shall be removed from his office and the subject matter stated in said subpoena is not mater ial to such inquiry or involved therein and therefore the said Joint session is without authority to Inquire int the matter referred to In said sub- poena or to require my attendance a a witness thereto (see People ex rel McDonald vs Keller. !)9 N. Y.. 4fi:i 485). "Second, that a power of investiga tlon Is given only to each house in respect of matters upon which It Is authorized to legislate and the said Joint session not having such power nor this extraordinary session having any present authority to so legislate it is without power to investigate. "Third, that neither house of tho legislature is now convened nor any of the members of the said houses at the time of the publication of tho nr tide here referred to or at tho time of the Issuing of said subpoena had pny legislative capacity until required by the governor's direction. On tho contrary, the said houses were excer cising a special authority not requir ing the action of the governor thereon aside from which each of them was without power to act. Lastly, the state constitution pro vides (article 4, section 4) 'Ho (the governor) shall have power to convene tho legislature or senate only on ex traordlnnry occasions. At extraor dinary sessions no subject shall he acted upon except such as the gover nor may recommend for consideration. The subject referred to In your sub poena has no relation to the subject reConimended for your consideration ,v tho covernor and as a consenuence you are prohibited by tho constitution from acting In respect thereto. "Respectfully, "John A. Hennessey, Letter Produced a Sensation. "Managing Editor New York Press." This letter produced a profound sen sation and opened up at once the ques tion of the powers of tho joint ses ion. Assemblyman Rogers immedi ately presented a resolution, already prepared, instructing the lieutenant governor and the speaker of the as sembly to Issue a warrant for the nr rest of Mr. Hennessey and his appear ance before the bar of the Joint ses sion, directing that he be held In cus tody of the sergeant -nt-armr, to await action on his case. Mr. Rogers de clared that Mr. Hennessey's answer to the summons was "astounding" and "taking advantage of a subterfuge." Senator Grady took immediate issue with this proposition, asserting that the only way to coerce a witness was for each house to act separately, after getting" legal advice upon the iiniiiie question. Thus began a long debat over the authority of the Joint session Senator Grady contended that Hennes sey was not guilty of contempt since the session had no power to Issue tho tubpoena. Senator Fuge and Assem- blyman Fish sided with him, while Senator Elsberg took tho opposite view. The question was left in the all when Senator Raines ended the discus sion by moving that Mr. Rogers' reso lution be laid on the table and thai Editor Hennessey be again subpocn aed under the form provided for In the special rules of the joint session. Such a subpoena will definitely require him to give testimony relative to the Hooker case. This closed the incident for the time being, and the taking of testi mony was resumed. RYAN TO SELL STOCK. Will Turn Over Equitable Holdings at Price He Paid. New York, July 18. From a direc tor of the Equitable Life Assurance so clety, it was learned that Thomas F Ryan, who recently purchased th stock holdings of James H.

O'Brien and Georgt Westinghouse, accepted posts in thfi directorate only after they had beer assured most emphatically that suc!i an agreement was in view and that such an agreement existed between Mr. Ryan nnd the three trustees. There was a meeting of the execu tlve committee of the society yester day but at Its conclusion Chairman Morton said there was no business ol any moment transacted. RIVER'S COURSE CHANGES.
