NEW JPOSTOFFICE Newark’s Proposed Building Far Down on List of Federal Structures Approved. ARCHITECT'S OFFICE IS THREE YEARS BEHIND Congressman McCoy Explains the Situation in Letter to Postmaster Bock. Tn a letter received by Postmaster Bock today from Congressman Wal ter I. McCoy, the local representative said that every effort was being made to rush through the supervis ing architect's office plans for New ark's new' postofflce. A special dispensation i» being sought to secure immediate action in the architect's office. As the matter now rests the local postofflce stands No. 2#5 on the list of Federal build ings which are being planned. According to Congressman McCoy's leiter, the supervising architect's of fice in Washington Is move than three years behind in the work ordered by Congress. This is attributed to the reduction in 1 he force of the office at the beginning of the Taft adntlii j lstratlon. According to the ptesenl conditions, even though the bill has passed Con gress und received tTie President’s approval, it may be more than five f. years before the site is even se J. lected. Fights til Have flan- Prawn. It is these* conditions that Con gressman McCoy is fighting. He is in touch, according to 111* letter, al most daily with the H\j|k*rvlslng architect, and is making every effort to have plans drawn at once. The congressman Insists on having plans for the local postofflce prepared •■specially to meet tha demands of this office. The present building was constructed from a stock plan and was cut off because there was not enough ground to erect the building according to specifications. The present building, It Is claimed, was always crowded and It was necessary to build an addition be fore it had been in use five years. With the establishment of two ses sions of the federal court and fed eral grand Jury in this city, the post office has been crowded to such an extent, that space in the tower Is being pressed into service for storing | postal supplies. , .James M. Reilly, secretary of tlie hoard of trade and a member of the special postoffloe committee of the board, was in Washington during the " inauguration ceremonies and talked with several of the congressmen re garding the Newark postofflce altua lion. Architect In liecide. "Everyone seemed to put the maw ter up to the supervising architect t department,-' said Mr. Reilly. "Of course no plans can be drawn for the local office until It Is definitely known how much can bo realized from the sale of the property on which tho present building stands. ■'The sale of the property rests with tho treasury department, which will also seleot the site for Mhe now building. William O. McAdoo, the new secretary, can be counted on to get rid of the dead wood as quickly as possible.” When Mr. Reilly was asked how the bill, in its amended fi>rm, providing ? *800,000 for a new site for the local postofflce, read, lie threw up his hands in despair. He said: "It has not been printed yet, and nobody seems to know the exact de tails of the amendment. I asked numerous congressmen, all of whom were too exhausted almost to talk. "The bill was passed at about 5:20 ' lust Tuesday morning, after the con gressmen had been In session for three days practically without an ad | journment. Until the bill Is printed nothing definite can be stated." Administration’* Attitude In* explaining the attitude of the new administration toward the super vising architect's department, Mr. Reilly said: "From the conversation I have had with representatives I am positive that the new administration is not satisfied with the work being done by the old Republican supervising archi tect’s department.

Star Bureau, Metropolitan National Uauk Hlrl»,, WASHINGTON. HAH. 8. i President Wilson has not committed I himself to any candidate for the Democratic nomination for Governor of Xew Jersey. Whether he will do so and take any part In the primary campaign next fall depends entirely upon what the Legislature does with the remaining bills designed to ful fill the Democratic platform pledges. Although many of the President's personal and political friend* are giv ing their support to the gubernatorial candidacy of Mayor Otto Wittpenn, of Jersey City, the President him self has made no promise of support to Mayor Wittpenn or anybody else. While the above statements are not directly authorized by the Presi dent. they correctly represent his at titude toward the Xew Jersey situa tion. While in Washington this week Governor Fielder told personal friends that lie intended to be as progressive and aggressive as Governor Wilson had been In urging legislation for the keeping of party promises. It is stated on good authority, .however, that the Governor and the President have no understanding or agreement on this subject. The President desires that the Leg islature shall pass the constitutional ! convention bill, the Jury bill and the measure giving a second- choice vote in party primaries, although the lat ter is not a part of the platform pledges. If the constitutional con vention and jury legislation fails it is the President’s Intention to go back to New Jersey in the primary campaign this fall, and publicly tell the voters where the responsibility lies for the failure to keep party pledges. What part lie may bo led to take in tlie gubernatorial campaign depends very largely upon the atti ture assumed by the various candi dates upon these questions, and their present activities in seeking to secure the pending legislation along these lines. * H. B. W. DISHONEST .FARMERS ADD ' TO THE COST OF LIVING BOSTON, March s. "The dis honesty of some New England farm ers is directly responsible for part of the increased cost of food," said Cyrus c. Miller, chairman of the New York Market Commission and presi-, dent of the borough of the Bronx, speaking ut a banquet tendered the delegates by the Chamber of Uum merce last night. "I know this to he a fact from my personal market experiences," Mr. Miller continued. "1 have bought a halo of hay with an old cooking stove in it; palls of butter sometimes con tain bricks, and sacks of potatoes Often conceal stove pipes or oQier foreign articles. As a result, the dealer must advance the price to de fray his loss." New York's market system Is the worst in the world and the most ex pensive for the consumer, Mr. Miller declared.

FINDS REAL JOY IN THOUGHTS OF DEATH Mrs. Kiln Wood Dean standing beside the tombstone she lias just designed for her own grove. _._ t J5VAXBTOX, III., .March 8.—"The rbeerfnllest moments of my life are Lhose [ spend contemplating death!” The words are lhose of Mrs. Ella Wood Dean, famous American author and globe-trotter. She has just startled the world by designing and hnildlng her own tombstone—she who ih in the very heydey of life and youth! "But there really ia nothing at all remarkable about this thing which 1 am doing." said Mrs. Dean to me as she stood beside her great* monument and smiled. Yes, actually—smiled! “It's only that people think so! People don't realize, you see, how beautiful and wonderful deatli is— how ntlich more wonderful and -beau tiful it is than life! "If they did they would make their lives brighter by thinking oftener of the coming of death! "Xow, you see, with such an idea of the beauty of death, 1 felt I was the only person alive who could prop erly put it into marble. So T decided to design my own tombstone and to have It built to suit me exactly. *‘l cannot tolerate these veiled fig ures of grief, forever weeping—the kind which decorate all our ceme teries. They do not truly represent death. "Why, the leading figure in my tombstone is the figure,of Hope! Bor death is the one real hope we have! "This figure walks through a field of poppies. Poppies- are symbolical of sleep. To me our life here seems but a sleep from which wc hope— from which we will—awake Into a better and happier world. I cannot believe that 'from dust vv» come and to dust return.' That seems such a hopeless thought when we think how wretched and trivial our life is here. "And really, none of us really be lieves it. It is Instinctive- in us to hope for a hereafter. The earliest Egyptians believed in a resurrection. The Hottentots, the Chinese and the Indiana all believe in a 'happy hunt ing ground' and bury food, clothing and weapons with their dead. "On the other hand, a group of pro fessors at Harvard have agreed to make every attempt after their death to communicate with those on earrfhi "So if death is just a new life, it should not be met with weeping and sorrowing. “As a little girl I got the prevalent idea that God was a terrible being with a severe countenance. But as T gradually conceived the universe—the planets and the mysterious foroe that brings blossoms and fruits out of hard, impossible earth--the Great Unknown overwhelmed me, and I knew death, too, must be marvelous. "So, as I start on my annual trip around the world this spring, 1 shall greet It with cheer and hope, and especially because I am leaving at my grave-to-be a message that death is good!” REPUBLICAN SENATORS CHOOSE COMMUTEEJVTEN WASHINGTON, March 8.—The work of planning Iho Republican as signments to tile House committees has begun. The immense increase in (lie Democratic majority in the new Congress will necessitate a general shifting. The grand prizes are the five minority vacancies on the ways and means committee, the tariff mak ing body of the House. Then come appropriations, judiciary and other important committees. While Mr. Mann probably has the ways and means members tentatively j»lated, there will be no decision on tlio committee distribution of the Re publicans until just before the extra session of Congress convenes. Time honored custom calls for acceptance by the committee majority of the minority leader's recommendations as to the Republicans on committees.

Police and Prosecutor's Offios Say Man Is Dead—Not In Morgue. tCuutluueri from First Page.) Prosecutor Mott's office—"Yes. a man was murdered. He is unidentified. I don’t know where he was shot or who shot him. The body Is In Kunz s morgue.’’ Chief Weimer, of the prosecutor's office—"Mr. Godfrey knows all about tlie murder and will tell you every thing he knows." Chief of Police Michael Flynn, of Belleville—"I don't know anything about It. No body was found In Belleville.” County Physician McKenzie—"No murder has been reported to me." Deputy County Physician Simmons, of Orange -“Any murder would be reported, but I have heard nothing about one." The Mountainside Hospital, con trary to Its usual custom and pre sumably upon strict orders, refused to admit that the man was in the hospital, or that he had died there, or that he was sttll living. The elaborate precautions taken by all these authorities to prevent the slightest leak in the mystery suggests that the murder ;s really one of re markable Importance. The only reason for believing it was an Italian who was killed Is the state ment of the Bloomfield police, who say so. What lie* back of tkie mystery is supposed ip reality to be this: The victim, a wealthy Italian American, of Newark, was among those blackmailed by the Black Hand organization the police have for# so long been trying to run down. De termined to make an example of him, as they have of others who disobeyed their mandates, the members of the society lured him either to the Silver Lake section of Bloomfield or the Soho section, and shot him down. He managed to escape and drag himeslf into Bloomfield proper before col lapsing. nr order that the dragnet for the murderers may be as eotnplefe as possible. Chief Weimer, of the prose cutor's office, asked Chief of Police Corbitt, of this city, to lend him two men familiar with Italian.' Lieutenants Cordano and Tenore, of police headquarters, were placed at his disposal. These detectives, with Court Interpreter Federlcl. joined forces with the prosecutor's men and the Bloomfield police. Detective Sergeant Walter Uodfrej' stated this afternoon that he hoped to have the assailants arrested before night. -—*_ STEPMOTHER NON-SUITED; FIANCE WILL GET ESTATE DKNVEH, March X.—Ordering two Insurance companies to pay to Dr. J.

BEGIN PROBES INTO EXPLOSION ON SNIP 1 Federal Officers and Polict Scour Baltimore Harbor in Boats, Searching for Bodies. SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION OF COAL POSSIBLE CAUSE Forty Dead, Sixty Hurt and $500,000 in Property Loss Toll of Disaster. BAL'rrMOKE, Md.,° March B—In vestigations are under way today to ascertain the cause and (lx the biame for the disastrous explosion yesterday of more than 300 tons of dynamite in'the hold of the British tramp steamer Alum Chine, lying at anchor in the lower harbor. The accident brought death to more than forty persons and serious injuries to three-score more and caused prop erty loss of more than $500.Ouo. tine investigation already has been com pleted by the city authorities, but no definite conclusion reached, be cause the accident occurred outside the city limits. Immediately after the accident the Federal authorities at Washington were apprised of the serious damage to the new collier Jason, which was near the anchorage of the ill-fated Alum Chine, and was about to be accepted by the navy department. Word was received that the depart ment would inquire into the disas ter. At the same time It is prob able an investigation will be under taken by the Interstate Commerce Commission, which has Jurisdiction over the shipment of explosives in American waters. Because most of the crew of the destroyed steamer were subjects of l Great Britain, the British consul ut Baltimore, Gilbert Fraser, also will inquire into the explosion, with the view of protecting the interests of the families of the killed and wound ed Welshmen, and to make a report to the British admiralty. The cor oner of Anne Arundel county will at once Impanel a Jury. This prob ably will complete the number of in quiries to attempt the fixing of blame for the disaster. Cause of Explosion » Mystery. Authorities who have made a par tial examination express the opin ion, however, that the real cause of the explosion will never be definitely learned, chieHy because those who might give information cither are among the dead or are «o seriously maimed and Injured they will never be in a position to make a statement regarding the accident. The general theory, which seems to be borne out by the statement of eye-witnesses to the tragedy, is tljat the coal In the vessel’s bunkers wus set afire by spontaneous combustion and the flames were communicated to the dynamite. The explostbn was so terrific that it has seriously crippled the coast de fenses of the harhor, in many In stances the concrete foundations of the heavy guns in Ports Howard. Armlstead and Carroll were ..cracked, wlille several of the guns themselves were damaged by falling pieces Jt steel from the wrecked steamer. At Port Armiatead the damage, it is estimated, will reach several thou sand dollars, while at Fort Carroll the damage is placed at- $2,500. Early reports of the extent of the loss of life aboard the destroyed steamer and the other vessels lying in her immediate vicinity materially differed and even yet no accurate ; list of those who lost their lives has i been compiled. It is expected, how ever. that the list will total between forty and fifty dead, almost as many more who werej dangerous or seriously Injured. Several of the for mer died at the hospitals here last night, and It Is believed that others cannot survive the day. May Never Ftml Hn<llet*. It is regarded as almost certain that all the bodies have not yet been recovered from the waters of the harbor, while others it is believed were torn to shreds by the force tif the heavy explosion. Many bodies are thought to have been taken to the bottom with the shattered hull of the vessel and may never be re covered. ITp to a late hour last night the number of dead had reached twenty six. of which twenty-four had been Identified. The bodies of two un identified negro stevedores remained at the morgue. The number of In jured broiijthl ashore and hurried to several hospitals had reached nearly sixty, all of whom had been identified. In all the Catholic churches to morrow prayers wilt be offered for the repose of the souls of those killed in the disaster and for the recovery of the Injured.

The appeal was filed by the district attorney of Nassau coun ty in the test case of Paul Shane, a bookmaker arrested vlast year for making oral bets. The appeal places thp case before the highest court in the Stale. I'pon the outcome of the appeai, according to the general understand ing, hangs the future of racing In this*State. Governor Hughes's anri betting laws killed the sport, but the recent decision in the Shane case re vived hope among the racing inter ests that the tracks might again be opened if oral betting was permitted.

WILSON 10 START 1 WORK ON MESSAGE > With Reduced Calling List He Is Ready to Outline Policy for Congress. WASHINGTON, March 8.—Col. E. [ M. House, of Texas, intimate friend of President Wilson, led the list of callers at the White House today. It was Colonel House's last talk with the President befoxe departing for his home in Texas. National Committeeman Edward K. Goltra, . of Missouri, and Homer 8. Cummins, of Connecticut; former , Representative Pujo, who presided over the House money trust inves tigations; Representatives Sherley, of Kentucky, and Moon, of Tennes see: Senator Pomerene, of Ohio, and Governor O'Neil, of Alabama, all had engagements with the President dur ing the forenoon. The President also received the Huprenie Court in the blue room of the White House during the morn ing President Wilson veil! begjln prepa ration of his first message to Con gress pext week. So far he has hau but little opportunity to consult his cabinet. Senate or House leaders about the message, but with a con stantly clearing desk in front of him and a calling list reduced as much as possible, he is expected to uirn his attention to the message within a few days. It is probable that.it will deal w-ith only two subjects, the tariff at | some length ami currency reform I briefly. During the special session oiner messages may he sent to Congress on various subjects, and it is likely lha; attention of Congress will be espe cially called to the need of currency legislation after the House ha* dis posed of most of the tariff schedule*. Predictions today were that the President will not attempt to attack the present tariff In a statistical man ner. but. that he will confine himself largely to an exposition of general policy and point out schedules whlcn he believes are in particular need of reform. The Supreme Court's visit was un usually brief, due to the fact that the aides at the White House benefited bv their experience on the last oc casion. when the CourUgpaid its for mal respects. An embarrassing situ ation was created then, as neither the members of the Supreme Court nor President Taft.,were sure who would leave the blue room firat. In the uncertainty the court’s visit was prolonged an hour. Today President Wilson was Informed he was to de part ahead of the court. He did so after chatting briefly with .the jus tices and hurried hack to the execu tive offices to meet a long line of callers. President Wilson today finally de cided that he would not be accom panied in public by uniformed aides. The latter will be with him only on Rtale occasion* at the White House or at army or navy funotlons. The President is not fond of ceremony or quasi-regal appearance which he thinks the presence of uniformed aides invariably gives. There are twelve aides at the White House now. but the number probably will be greatly reduced. SUPREME COURT TAKES LESSONS IN CHINESE WASHINGTON, March 8.—On the ability of the justice* of the Supreme Court to read the Chinese characters written on two inner tablets from a temple in Amoy, China, will depend largely the outcome of a case before the court today.

Chinese interpre ters differ as to the story the tablets tell. The secretary of the Chinese le gation In Washington has been called in by attorneys to decipher the char acters. Still the dispute as to the tab lets continues. The court must decide who is correct. POLICE BEAT STRIKERS INSENSIBLE IN BATTLE r AKRON, O..

WASHINGTON, March 8.—Hun dreds of women crowded the corridors of the Senate office building today and pleaded for admission to the room where the Senate sub-commli tee continued its investigation of the conduct of the police during the dis orders attending the suffrage parade last Monday. Jeers and hisses greeted statements favorable to' the police and applause greeted statements derogatory to the officials. The first witnesses today were George 8. Canfield, of Spokane, Wash.: Commodore VV. 8. Moore, of Washington, and Judge Henry D Pierce, of Indianapolis. They de clared the police methods lax and inadequate. Judge Pierce told of see ing Chief Sylvester giving orders to patrolmen, but he said the patrolmen evinced a lack of interest in carrying them out. .Other witnesses testified to indignities and insults to the wom en marchers, none of which seemed to stir the police into activity. Commodore Moore declared Sylves ted had told him that he sympathized with the suffrage cause, but that he did not approve the methods adopted tfv the women who were trying to ad vance it." A defense of the police was present ed by the Rev. J. H. Nelms. "I never saw a more-good natured oi- better handled crowd," said he. The slatement was greeted with a chorus of "No. That Isn’t true," from tlie big crowd of women. Chairman Jones was forced to admonish the audience several times. Former Secretary of War Stimson and Major General Wood attended today's hearing and Police Chief Syl vester was on hand with his at torneys. Major-General Anson Mills, retired, who led one of the divisions of men In the parade, was indignant and em phatic in his characterization of the crowds and of the police. “Crowds of hoodlums," he said, "sneered at my division in the parade and made insulting remarks." Mrs. Mills, the general's wife, told of Incidents along the line of march, and described what she called the "apathy of the police." "If I had had a policeman's billy,” she said, shaking her head emphat ically, “I would have gotten that orowd back.” Former Secretary of War Stimson detailed his conferences with police officials and the suffragist committee on the request for a detail of regular troops to aid the police. When the rumor that the district police had said that the protection of the suf frage parade was "up to the war de partment" reached him. Mr. Stimson said he ordered a troop of cavalry held subject to the order of Chief Sylvester. “Even in allowing the use of these troops,” said the former secretary, “the war department stretched Its powers under the law to the utter moBt. and1 if any violence had re sulted our action undoubtedly would have been gravely questioned."
