DECEMBER 19. 1006. ^-in -1 — J“L~!— ~— .. .. ..... .— ___ J USET cur 1$ INTERESTED Hudson City Business Men Wait oo Park Commission With a Pelegati: n of W est Hob >ken Citizens and A gue tor P urchase by County of Suckley Estate WANT PASK N BROW OF HILL COMMISSION IMPRESSED WIT H THE ARGUMENTS AND WILD MAKE PERSONAL INSPECTION OF THE ESTATE IN QUESTION—DATE TET TO BE FIXED. Two delegation, one representing West Hoboken citizens interested in the pur chase or a portion, of the Suckley estate that lies within the borders of their mu nicipality, for a county park, and another composed of the Park Committee of the Hudson City jBusiness Men’s Associa tion of this city, in which municipality a tonsiderable portion of the Suckley es ate is located, waited upon the Hudson Coifnty Board of Park Commissioners yesterday afternoon to press their claims. Both delegations are working harmoni ously. The West Hoboken delegation was headed by Mayor Thomas Nolan, of that municipaltiy, and*Included John Weisse, Thomas A. Dolan and B. B. Page. The Hudson City Business Men’s Association Park Committee was represented by Dr. Allen the Chairman of the Committee, Henry S. Rohlffs, and President Gustav lvoven of the Association, ex-officio mem her of the committee. Dr. Allen, whose views have been al ready stated in the The World, was the first spokeman for the Jersey City men and he made it distinctly clear to the Park Commissioners that the residents of the northern end of the hill section of Jersey * ity were not antagonistic to the. West Hoboken park project but mere ly wished to see the project enlarged. "We are oi ly too giad to work with them." This ^assertion was later declared to be ir e by Mayor Nolan, of West Hoboken ■ • ther members of the West Hoboken d- legation, *'vVe are glad we’ve go together," said D- Alien "We a. county k. -hcild not be a city park.

LETHBRIDGE THE NEXT_SPEAKER Assemblyman-Electl From Orange, Meml^r of the Essex Delegation Will Be the Next Speaker of the House of Assembly Throwing off the yoke of Former Uni ted States Senator James Smith, thp/in dependent Democratic Askemblymen-elsct of Essex County yesterday succeeded in making one of their own delegation the unanimous choice of the Democratic As semblymen-elect of the State for the Speakership of the next house of the As sembly. He is Edward P. Lethbridge, of Orange. The tyelve members of the Hud son delegation, all of whom attended yes terday’s caucus in Newark, mawe a stiff fight for the selection of Archibald 3. Alexander for the position, but finding they were beaten, they moved to make the selection unanimous. Lethbridge and Alexander both did the courteous act in voting for each other. Despite the fact that jpsephh H. Firth, of Warren county foisted upon the Trenton caucus by the ! Smith-Gourley-Nugent combine, had de- i dared that he would not retire from the ' fight, after having received the endorse- 1 ment for the Speakership at the Trenton : caucus, a letter from him, bearing, how ever, the hear marks of Chairman Gour- | ley, of the State Deihocartic Committee, deeling the nomination was received add read. Hudson's fight for the Speakership caused delay of the caucus for over two I hours. Some of the members of the Es- | sex delegation were in favor of the se- j lection of Joseph A. Riordan, of Harri- j son, others wanted Wright, and these facts led the Hudson delegation to the I belief that they might yet secure the , election of a Hudscon County man as Speaker. n effort was made to havemi dosed ses sion . The Hudson delegates objected to this. This preliminary skirmish of the j battle was led by Riordan, of Harrison, and he won out. The letter of Mr. Firth cite!! thefact that despite the charge that he had been convicted of a technical charge of being the keeper of a disorder ly house in allowing a nickel-ln-the-sloc | machine to be operated in a hotel 'for- ! merly owned by him in Phlllipscburg, of which he Is Mayor, he is still respected j by his constituents. i Hudsoft County politicians and wtera j yet asking: "Is Smith manning the ' guns?" selection* are admirable.

It was admitted that there are about ninety houses upon the, estate of both West Hoboken and Jer sey City lines of the estate, mostly in Jersey City, and that these included two churches—one in Jersey City and one In West Hoboken." “Holy Band,” said Dr. Allen, who in vited the Commissioners to come up and size up tho location, i" TW ■ ■ Files Cured in 6 to 14 Says PAZO OINTMENT is guaranteed to cure any case of Itching.

SENDS IN SPECIAL MESSAGE Deplores Boycotting of Japanese Res taurants and Acts of Violence Com mitted Against Aliens — Secretary Metcalf’s Report Accompanies Ex ecutive Communication. Washington, Dec. 19. — President Roosevelt sent to congress the final re port made to him by Secretary' Met calf on the situation affecting the Jap anese in San Francisco, accompanied by a short message, in which he said: “The report deals with three matters of controversy—first, the exclusion ol the Japaneso children from the San Francisco schools; second, the boycott ing of Japanese restaurants, and third, acts of violence committed against the Japanese. “As to the first matter, I call your especial attention to the very small number of Japanese children who at tend school, to the testimony ap to the brightness, cleanliness and good beha vior of these Japanese children in the schools and to the fact that, owing tc their being scattered throughout the city, the requirement for them all to gc to one special school Is Impossible of fulfillment and means that they cannot have school facilities. Exclusion of Adults Upheld. “Let me point out further that there would be no objection whatever to ex cluding from the schools any Japanese an the score of age. It is obviously noi desirable that young men should go tc school with children. “The only point is the exclusion ol the children themselves. The number of Japanese children attending the public schools in San Francisco was very small. The government has al ready directed that suit be brought tc test ti^f constitutionality of the act ii question, but my very earnest hope is that such suit will not be necessary and that as a matter of comity the citi zens of San Francisco will refuse tc deprive these young Japanese childrer of education and will permit them tc go ta*the schools. Wants Japanese Protected. “The question as to the violence against the Japanese is most admira bly put by Secretary Metcalf, and 1 Save nollnng'Td add to his statement I am entirely confident that, as Secre tary Metcalf says, the overwhelming sentiment of the state of California is for law and order and for the protec tion of the Japanese in their persons and property. Both the chief of polics and the acting mayor of San Francisco assured Secretary Metcalf that every thing possible would be done to pro tect the Japanese in the city. “I authorized and directed Secretary Metcalf to state that if there was fail ure to protect persons and property then the entire power of the federa government within the limits of th< constitution would be used promptly and vigorously to enforce the observ ance of our treaty the supreme lavs of the land, which treaty guaranteed to Japanese residents everywhere ii the Union full and perfect protection for their persons and property, and t« this end everything in my power would be done, and a-H the forces of the Unit ed States, both civil and military, which I could lawfully employ would be employed." The conclusion of Secretary Metcalf to which the president calls special at tention, is: Will Invoke Federal Power. “If, therefore, the police power o) San Francisco Is not sufficient to meel the situation and guard and proteci Japanese residents in San Francisco to whom under our treaty with Japai ^e guarantee full and perfect protec tion for their persons and property then, it seems to' me, It is clearly th« duty of the federal government to af ford such protection. “All considerations which may movf a nation, every consideration of duty In the preservation of our treaty ob ligations, every consideration prompt •d by fifty years or more of clos« friendship with the empire of Japan would unite in demanding, it seems ta to me, of the United States govern ment and all its people the fullest pro tection and the highest consideratioi for the subjects of Japan.” Secretary Metcalf’s report deals ex haustively with the action of the board of education in providing a separata school for Chinese, Japanese and Ko rean children, which, he says, is gen erally upheld by the city press. Many of the foremost educators oi the state, however, he says, are oppos ed to the discrimination. Prominent Visitors Assaulted. The report also gives full details 01 the boycott of Japanese restaurants and of assaults on individual Japanese, referred to by the president. Secretary Metcalf lays particular stress upon the case of Dr. S’. Omori of the Imperial university of Tokyo, one of the world’s most distinguished scientists, who was sent to Sari Fran cisco by the Japanese government to study the causes and effects of the earthquake. While taking photographs he was stoned by young hoodtifms, some of them in the iivery .of the post al service. His hat was stove in. Dr. T. Nakamura, professor of architecture in the Imperial university, was simi larly attacked, and sand and dust were thrown orer him and his assistants. Dr. Omori was also assaulted in Eu reka, Csl The secretary appends to hIs report J letters of apology to 35rs. Ouiori„ana Nakamura from the governor of the state, the mayors of San Francisco anjl Eureka, the postmaster and chief ' Of police of San Francisco. All ex pressed the deepest regret that the at tacks should have occurred and vigor ously denounced the assailants. The postmaster promised to discharge the postal boys implicated in the assault, and he subsequently did discharge them. To Investigate Child Labor. The senate devoted nearly four hojjrs to the consideration of unobjected bills on its calendar. The result was the passage of a number of measures of minor importance. Among those pass ed was one authorizing a government loan of $1,000,000 to the Jamestown Tercentennial Exposition company and another providing for an investigation of the industrial, social, moral, educa tional and physical condition of wo man and child workers in the United States by the department of commerce and labor. Senator Patterson introduced in th* senate a resolution directing the judi ciary committee to make an invest tion of published reports that a 1 has been endeavoring to iftfjxfence m.. ters relative to the Kongo f’ree State. The Indian appropriation bill was passed by the house. The exodus of members has already commenced for the Christmas 'holidays, the vaeant desks during the consideration of the Indian bill and the consideration of District of Columbia business silently indicating that Yuletide is near. Congressman Coins New Word. Washington, Dec. 19. — Representa tive Gaines of Tennessee coined a new word in the house while correcting the record in which was printed the collo quy between himself and Mr. Under wood of Alabama regarding the in crease in members’ salaries.

He regrets the abuse of authority by Rai suli and expresses a firm desire for the execution of the reforrtis decided upon by the Algeeiras conference. In reply to the answer of the sultan the diplomatic corps unanimously de-, manded Raisuli’s departure. ‘Rumors About Panama Canal. Washington, Dec. 19.—There is ev ery indication here that the Panama canal is to become the great subject before congress, not this dying con gress, but the one that is to come. If what is heard here be halfway true there will be a mountain of testimony to show that the plans for the con struction of the canal are faulty, thr,t if not faulty the cost will be many times that estimated in the act of con gress and that the machinery, m&aning both men and mechanical appliances, is not of the sort that will make foi success. ► Neil’s Body to Be Examined. New York, Dec. 19.—Catherine Nell, a prisoner in the Tombs charged with the murder of her husband, Joseph, at, Greenwich, Conn., denied that the man had been stabbed with a hatpin or a nail file and asserted her opinion that he had died from poison.

KORUDEJUCIDI Both Sides Claim Victory In the New York Life and Mutual Fight For Offices. OLD REGIME PROBABLY WINS Administrations Believed to Have Been Successful, but Policy Holders' Com mittee Leaders Declare Their Tickets Have Been Elected—How the Votes Were Cast. New York, Dec. 19.—The administra tion tickets in both the Mutual and New York Life Insurance companies were probably successful •' at the elec tions for trustees of the two compa nies. If the boards of inspectors, after the official count, return them victors the decision will be contested in the courts by the International Policy Holders’ committee. It will take from forty to sixty days to complete the count, and during the: canvass many thousands of .votes sent In by agents, officers and other employees of the two companies will be challenged by watch ers of the international committee. In the New York Life 440,000 votes were cast and in the Mutual 345,000. In the New York Life 630,000 policy holders did not vote, and in the Mu tual 245.000 failed to exercise the fran chise conferred' upon them by the leg islature at its last session. Both Sides Claim Victory. Vice Presidents Darwin P. Kingsley and Thomas A. Buckner and Secretary John C. McCall of the New York Life asserted that the administration ticket in the company had won by 100,000 majority. Vice President George T. Dexter of the Mutual Life declared that the ad ministration ticket in that company had won by 150,000 majority. Samuel Untermyer, counsel, and i George R. Scrugham, manager of the j International Policy Holders’ commit tee. asserted that their ticket had won In the New York Life by from 5,000 ! to 12,000 and in the Mutual Life by j from 7.000 to 10.000. This is the way the vote was cast in the New York Life: Agents, officers and other employees of the company turned in 114,000 proxies In favor of the administration ticket. Examinei Fulde of the state insurance depart ment turned in 192,000 sealed ballots received by mail at the company’s of fice since Oct. 18. The International Foliey Holders’ committee turned in 127.000 ballots and 7,000 proxies in fa vor of its candidates. The Mutual Life vote was cast as follows: Officers and employees of the . company turned In 30,000 proxies for ' the administration ticket. Examiner j MacArthur of the insurance depart- ! ment turned in 107,000 sealed ballots ' received at the company’s office by I mall since Oet. 18. The International Policy Holders’ committee turned in 103.000 ballots and 5,000 proxies in fa- j vor of its candidates. Sealed Ballots to Decide. ■ The result of the election in both - companies hinges upon the proportion i of votes for the opposition tickets ta the sealed ballots, which have been in the custody of the insurance depart ment representatives. In the Mutual Life the policy holders’ committee claims that 30 per cent of the 207,000 votes, or 62,000, will go to its candi dates. The company claims more than . 99 per cent of this vote for the admin istration ticket and only allows tha policy holders’ candidates about one half of 1 per cent, or 1,000 out ot 207,000. In the New York Life the policy holders’ committee claims 40 per cent of the 192,000 sealed ballots, or 76,00C votes, while the company claims 90 per cent for the administration ticket. The policy holders committee also says that at least 30,000 of the 114,000 .-proxies cast by the agents of that com pany are fraudulent, or duplicates oi ballots. Where a policy holder exe cuted both a ballot and a proxy the ballot will be counted and the proxy thrown out. Probing New York Life.

Kingston, Jamaica, Dee. 19.— The Hamburg-American ste: ship Prinzes sin Victoria Luise, which struck a ledge of rock off Port Royal, is a total wreck. Spray is breaking high over her, and the sea is pounding her hard. Captain Brunswig, who committed suicide, mistook Plain Stoint light for that at the western point of Port Roy al and turned the vessel sharply north, steaming at a fourteen knot gait. The ship struck head on with a ter rific crash. Then the waves forced her broadside on the ledge. Her hull, im paled on the rocks, has nine feet of water In the starboard side, sixteen feet in the port side and has a heavy list to port, i Marine surveyors here think that if she were pulled off she would sink immediately. The bottom is pushed up and the bed plates and engines displaced. A passenger who gave an account of the disaster denied that panic ensued when the steamer struck the rock.

Ovet on the top of a hill in Fairfield I have been laboring, and I would say that the man who accomplished the task of making a farm there has a harder Job than President Roosevelt, for a regiment of colored soldiers, a diplo mat’s wife and a Panama canal are small matters in comparison. “The farmer stands for all that i* good, true and honest.

Bakersfield, Cal., Dec. 19.—The min i *r Hicks, buried eleven days under j Granite mountain by a landslide, lee ! tures to his rescuers at the end of the | iron tube through which he is fed.

Cheer up and strike np a tune—that one that makes you feel like a prince,” was the reply. “Oh, the sun shines bright in .-y old Kentucky home!” He sang the song through, a cheery, ringing voice from the grave in the Granite mountain, and then for fif teen minutes he attacked that part of the president’s message relating to the Japanese question. The doctor had read him portions of the state docu ment shortly before. “You caught me, did you, old man?” he shouted up. “You need t think I’m crazy. I do a little spieling to myself once in awhile Just to pass the time. Those first few days, when you would not have traded a corpse for me and given 5 cents to boot, i delivered more orations then Daniel Webster.” Laughs Deep Under Earth.

I wish you would | bring up, my things from the camp." “Don’t worry about clothes,” called Dr. Slinchfield. “We have everything you will need in the hospital,^ Buried Man in Good Qendltfem “What do you think of thaty* the doctor exclaimed. placing the plug la the pipe. “A man who baa beea la his situation for eleven days asking to* clean clothes. There is not or^e per1 son out of ten thousand who would net have been driven insane by Hicks' ex perience, yet he appears to be in good j physical condition. I Judge from the j strong, clear tone of his voice that this ( is the case.” I W. S. Cone, general superintendent ! of construction, who is directing the I rescue work, looked worried at the suggestion of another cave-in burying | Hicks. They will have their heaviest | timbers and steel beams in the grasp j of their quickest and strongest men ; when the wall of granite is broken through, for another eave-in is dread | ed. Hicks knows that this danger threat i ens. Once the hammering ag . ast the ! face of the tunnel caused a disturb ance in his tomb.
