The finding of another' miner alive
after 25 days' entombment caused the
most intense excitement. The man
was found in" pit No. 4 of the Sallau
mines vein. He was in good condi

region it caused extreme exasperation
against the engineers who halve -been

New York Man Slated for
Chairmanship of Congres
Aaaoelated Preaa to The Evealac Times.
Washington,* D. C.,, April 4.—The
men who will be entrusted with the
management of the republican con
gressional campaign this yea? will be
selected tonight at a joint caucus of
the republican members of the senate
and house of representatives. The'
election of the hew offlcrs of the com
mittee will not take place at this cau
cus, but the. various state delegates
will report the selection of a repre
sentative on. the committee of each
state. These committeemen will then
hold a caucus to determine oir their
own officers and executive committee.
If the slate is adopted as at present
framed by the republican leaders, the
committee will be in charge of prac
tically'ah entirely new set of offi
cers. An effort undoubtedly will be
made at the caucus to persuade the
officers who served in previous years
to continue to serve in the coming
campaign, but there is no likelihood
that this will change their determina
tion. Representative Babcock of Wis
consin long ago announced his de
termination to retire from the chair
'. manshlp and Representative Over
street of Indiana, who for eight years
has been secrtary, and W. B. Thomp
son of Michigan, treasurer, have like
wise prepare# their resignations.
Unless all signs fail the chairman
ship, will go to Representative James
S. Sherman of New York. Mr. Sher
man has been vice-chairman of the
committee for eight'years, and has
rendered valuable service in conduct
ing previous campaigns. To succeed
Mr. Sherman as vice-chairman of the
committee, it is likely that Repre
sentative Tawney of Minnesota, will
be chosen. He has done efficient work
in Western campaigns, and his ser
vices always have been greatly in de
mand as a campaign organizer and
stump speaker. Fbr the place of sec
retary, the most likely candidate ap
pears to be Representative Albert F.
Dawson of Iowa,, anew member of the
house. Mr. Dawson has greeted the
speakers' bureau for the republican
state committee in Iowa, and before
*1 his election to congress he was for
'i -six years secretary to Senator Allison

New York, April 4.—The balloon In
which Paul Nocquet, sculptor, made
an ascension late yesterday, was
found at 10 o'clock last night on Jones'

The balloon was last seen before it
disappeared in an easterly direction
over Long, Island at dusk last night

made a successful descent with the

City that if Dowie returns and com
mences legal action against the pres
ent officers of the church or attempts
to oust them, they will cause his ar

THE SHIP SUBSIDY
House Committee Has Lively
Times at Opening of In
Amoclated l4tm to The Bvenlng Tlmea.
Washington, April 4—The ship
subsidy hearings were begun today by
the house committee on merchant
marine and fisheries. Rough weather
was struck at once by reason of the
cross-fire and controversies of the
chairman and committee members
talking with endeavors of the wit
nesses to get themselves understood.
First came John McNeill, past na
tional president of the boiler makers'
association in favor of the bill. He
said all the men who actually build
ships in this country favor the bill.
In order that both sides might be
heard, Geo. L. Duvall, chairman of the
ship subsidy committee of the New
York Merchant's Assn., was allowed
to state his name and official stand
ing. He had no more than got these
facts in record when Representative
Humphrey of Washington began to
catechise him at an exceedingly rapid
rate. Humphrey stopped long enough
to explain to the committee, after he
had asked a dozen questions, that he
wanted to show that Duvall was sim
ply representing foreign shipping in
terests. This Duvall hotly denied.
Duvall said he did not wish it un
derstood that he or the interests he
represented were opposed to the ship
subsidy, notwithstanding they had
opposed every bill of that character.
The opposition was based upon the
provisions of the bill, which, it was
believed, would permit some of the
subsidy getting into the hands of for
eign ship owners. With several
amendments the association would
support the bill. These amendments
were later presented.
