Yesterday the Joint grievance com mittee of the railroad trainmen and conductors was In session for most of the day with General Manager Higglns of the road. No news was given out from Mr. Hlgglns' private office, where the jjessions were held and the rail road people refused even to acknowl edge that a, meotlng was in progress. Despite tho statements ot some of the out ot town papers, no threats were made and ultimatums were far from the thoughts of either' party, al though tho trainmen say that they are now trying to settle grievances more i t i o s l (0 ! fl n Copies of Old Family Paintings We have fully devel oped our facilities for reproducing old family paintings. made the full size of the portrait and are perma nent and as beautiful as the original canvas.

Tho members of the committee state, however, ' that they fully expect to arrive at a work- ins agreement without any danger of a rupture. When soon last evening, ;tr. Mur dock, vice grand master of the Broth erhood of Railroad Trainmen, iU that tho grievances of the men have noth ing to flo with the formation of a new schedule, but that they desire to reach an understanding on certain points of the present agreement, different inter pretation of which by the two parties concerned have been the cause of the tronhie. P. X. Berry of the National Order of Conductors, stated that negotiations are progressing most satisfactorily and that the committee is being most courteously treated by th" road. It Is hl.s expectation that a settlement will be reached without any resort to sev ere measures but that It will take some time to thrash out all the questions involved. It may be staled on the authority of these men that tho chief trouble has to do with the rate of payment after the fiivt hundred mil's. When the agree ment first was made several years ago, tho rate after the first hundred miles was made less than that for the one hundred in order that the men with short runs should receive a fair day's pay and that tho Incentive to a harm ful amount of overtime work should be removed. When the new management of the roil come Into power, they took advantage of this clause, making a smaller number of men cover the same amount of work, with a consequent savins to tho road. This question and that of making the passenger men handle freight runs are the two rocks Upon II FJHIL 1 -Jiv... iiiil U"L at all likely for both shies will make concessions before adopting extreme measures.

Taking up the question of the reg- I ulntlons governing the use of the highways by automobiles, Mr. Hadul dor urged uniform legislation, "so that a citizen of one state can travel through other states without vexa tions and restrictions differing from those of his own state."

The Inquiry Is before a sheriffs Jury and a commission appointed by tho supreme court In Urooklyn. Miss Vanderbllt claims that her father dis played his mental unlllness by his marriage to a woman who, she al leges, deceived blm by "fake" spirit ualistic, manifestations. At the very beginning of bis testi mony Mr. Vandorbllt manifested a bitterness toward the attorney repre senting his daughter In th" suit. Tho witness termed the proi dings "a damnable outrage" anil said that he had been practically driv.-n out of business and had his property tied up as, a consequi'ii' ' of th" Inquiry. Then, pointing a linger at his daughter's law y r, ho said : "1 want to say that this Is the most 'acrlligloiis tiling I ever heard of. Vou ought to he ashamed of yourself, .sir. IWcanse you am a Jew and I am a spiritualist, you seek to ridicule my belief to which 1. have a perfect right, under the constitution.

He mentioned 'I'.iight Kyes, I'hun- nertinit and "Udells," as the mure prominent of the group of spirits he hai heart from, nnd then gave the name of an entirely new spirit -one that has not figured in the testimony heretofore. The name of this spirit was "TrlxlV" "Tiixle," he said, "an tedated the other spirits of his ac quaintance and brought him a messag from l:ls ilrst wife, saying that she hoped he was In good health, and that be was gitltig along well In ills widow hood." in explaining his heltef In spiritual ism, he said: "I thoroughly believe we nr nil on" In spirit, the only thing that, separates us beliuj the body.

M -l'rosldenl Castro will sail to morrow from la tiualra on the steam er ( luadeloiipe for Bordeaux, to under go an operation by a skilled specialist of Berlin. Efforts which were made recently to have l'r. Israel of Berlin, roinn to Caracas, failed. As an opera tion whs Imperative and President Cas tro's attending physicians were unwill ing to take the responslbllll y, the presi dent decided to go abroad. The operation will he performed Im mediately on President Castro's arrival at, Bordeaux, where r. Israel will he In waiting. Should the operation be successful, the president will visit Paris, where he will rest for' a few days only, in he wishes to return to Caracas at ns early a. date as possible. The greatest excitement prevails In Caracas, and political Inttigulnn al ready ha.s commenced. It Is thought that the president's depart tire may open the road for the settlement, of the Holland, American and French disputes. When It, was announced a few days ago that the president had finally de termined on proceeding to Furnpe, Caracas was all excitement, and the probabilities of his carrying out tills program were the subjects of discus sion t hroughoi.it the city, wherever one turned.

The John M. ftrown's troubles be gan on October in, when she ran into stormy weather off Cape Ilatteras. Captain Stevens believes she struck some floating or submerged wreck of wreckage, for she sprung a leak that let in the water so rapidly that the two steam pumps and nil the-deckhand pumps could make no headway against It.
