(From a Staff Correspondent.) I
WASHINGTON, Oct. S.-tSpectel.)-Chalr-
manshlps of at least thirty senate commit
tees, regular and select, will be changed
when the Fifty-ninth congress meets In
December. Already many of the members
of the upper brlnch of congress have been
casting about to ascertain what other
members deslrn In the way of committee
chairmanships, so that they may take ad
vantage of the Tinowledge thus gained for
their own personal use. These Inquiries,
so far In advance of the meeting of con
gress, have had a tendency to focus the
spotlight on the reorganization of the
senate committee, for It is generally con
ceded that In the upper body will come
the supreme fight for many of the prin
ciples for which the president Irrevocably
stands.
As to these inquiries regarding chair
manships, and chief committee places, the
president. It Is understood, has had full
knowledge and appreciating that there Is
a strong minority In the senate against
many of the questions he will discuss In
his forthcoming message, he has. as quietly
as the senators, been looking after chair
manships with a view to helping his side
when the battle royal la on. One thing
seems certain when the curtain rolls up
on the Fifty-ninth congress, that President
Roosevelt will know where his friends are,
and by the same reasoning will know where
to put his finger on his opponents.
Chairmanships to Be Filled.
The fact that the president has already
commenced to Inquire from his senatorial
visitors as to the makeup of committees
In the upper body has directed the atten
tion to the large number of chairmanships
to be filled, larger than In any previous
congress since the last Cleveland adminis
tration. The committees that will have a new
head, from the most conservative estimate,
are: Agricultural, audit and control of the
contingent expenses of the senate, Canadian
relations, census, clulms, coast and Insular
survey, education a: id labor, engrossed bills,
examine the several branches of the orvtl
service, fisheries, geological survey, Indian
affairs, Indian depredations, interoceanlo
canals. Irrigation and reclamation of arid
lands. Judiciary, military affairs, mines and
mining. Pacific railroads, patents, public
buildings and grounds, railroads, transport
tatlon routes to the seaboard. University
of the United Statea. These are the stand
ing committees of the senate. Changes In
the select committee, which were created
to give every member of the majority a
chairmanship and to take cars of the lead.
era of the minority, will occur la the fol
lowing committees: Examination and dis
position of documents, industrial exposi
tions, the Potomac fiver front at Washing
Ion, investigate 'trespasses Upon Indian
lands and national banks.
In these changes the president recognizes
hero and there a chanoe to help a friend
and strengthen himself when help is need
ful to carry out the principles for which
he stands.
Roosevelt Feara Senate.
No man appreciates the divisional line
between the executive and legislative
branchea of the government better than
does President Roosevelt. Ha has made
politics the study of his life. He realizes
that to start out boldly to capture chair
manships In the conservative senate would
end In failure, and so he is represented
by those who have discussed tne matter
with him as being only anxious to have
workers at the head of committees and
not men who will take delight In nover
holding committee meetings.
The president. It has been represented,
has no fear of the house. He believes
that on rate legislation the lower body
will stand to his views as expressed In
his meueage. As to the upper body, how
aver, there is a problem, and In order,
therefore, to help the cause along It Is
quietly Intimated the president is doing
what he can to strengthen tha hands of
his friends, realising that while the coun
try is behind him In his views, particu
larly on railroad rate matters there is a
decided minority in the senate who do not
agree with his position. To strengthen his
hands the president Is represented as tak
ing this active Interest in the reorganiza
tion of the senate committees possibly
upon the theory that the "man who waits
Is lost."

PEN8ACOLA, Fla. Oct. H.-Elghteen new
cases of yellow fever developed In Pensa

field artillery, two troops of cavalry and a
battalion of infantry, took Fort Bill In
sham battle against five batteries of artil

of Colonel William Howe of Key West bar

tneir advance from Anadarko Friday
morning and advanced to within two miles
of the north gate of Fort Sill reservation
yesieraay. colonel Howe assembled his
men to the northwest and south of the
fort thinking the enemy would enter from
that direction by the position they had
taken.
General Baldwin was successful by mak

least expected and most poorly defended.
One flank of Baldwin's troops went entirely
around the outposts and crossed the rail

railroad and telegraph communication In

MIDDLETOWN. N. Y.. Oct. .-Alt at
empts of the county and locsl police offi
cials to clear up the mystery of the murder
or Willis and Fred Olney and tittle Alice
Ingerlck at the Olney farm near here, and
the murderous assault on Mrs. Ingerlck on
Friday night, have ro fsr been fruitless. It
waa believed this morning that some clue
to the murder hsd been found when Alan
son Orahsm, an old man living near the
Olney place, was arrested on Information
furnished by Mrs. Ingerlck. the only mem
ber of the Olney household who escaped
death, but who was found terribly Injured
snd unconscious la the barn. After N-lng
kept In custody all day and closely exam
ined. Graham tonight conclusively proved
his Innocence and was discharged from
custody.
Mrs. Ingerlck was employed by him as
a housekeeper until a few weeks ago, when
she returned to Mlddletown and soon went
to live with the Olney brothers. This was
said to have been resented by Graham, who
Is reported to have made efforts to Induce
her to return to him, and this, with stories
told by Lulu Ingerlck of alleged threats by
Graham against her mother, appear to have
been the basis on which the authorities de
cided to arrest Graham.
Other Soapecte Released.
Daniel Davis and his wife, who live near
New Vernon, were taken to police head
quarters tonight and closely Interrogated,
and later It was announced that there ap
parently wa no e"ijdence that would jus.
tify holding them a'd that they would be
honorably discharged.
Mrs. Ingerlck regained consciousness for
the first time since the assault thla morn
lng. and although not able to speak, suc
ceeded In replying to the lnterrogatorlea of
District Attorney Rogers by nodding and
shaking her head. What Information '
thus elicited was not made public, but
County Detective Ward and Chief of Police
Brinkerhoff at once hastened to Graham's
home and conducted him to this place
Where he was lodged in Jail. Graham took
his arrest coolly and said that he would
have no difficulty In establishing his lnno
cenca.
Mrs. Ingerlck' husband, Martin, from
whom she was separated several years
ago, was cleared from all suspicion of con
nection with the crime when he came In
today from his home In Wuertsboro and
reported to the authorities. Ha was unable
to throw any light on the affair.
Mrs. Ingerlck's condition tonight shows
continued . Improvement and strong hopes
for . her recovery are entertained. She
was placed In a private room In the hos

CLEVELAND. O.. Oct. .-In his closing
talk to the Sunday school class of the
Euclid Avenue Baptist church, of which he
Is superintendent. John D. Rockefeller to
day made a comparison of the crops thst
grow In fhe field and the .crops that may
be cultivated by each person that will be of
more benefit than those which grow In the
ground. Mr. Rockefeller referred to per
sonal virtues, and In part he said:
I don't know how manr of you children
hsve been In the country this year, but
many of you have come to see me at my
home snd have made me happy.
I wsnt to ask you what crops you have
harvested this year. I won t find fault If
you have not done very well, nor If you
nave forgotten, for we older ones do the
same thing, but struggle along sgaln snd
resolve to do better. I want to suggest
to you children that you foster the spirit
that rromDts us to spesk a kindly word
and that extends the hand heartily. Some
of us have not had much education, some
of us were never graduated from college,
but we can raise crops Just the same. Let
us cultivate the spirit of patience, let Is
cultivate that cron riant here In our own
city. In New York, or wherever we may be.
Anotner crop that we can cultivate is
charity. Still another crop that we can
raise Is that of good will. Patience, charity
and good will toward others are ever so
much better for ourselves and for others
than are the material crops that a row out
or me ground.
I feel like a soonse. because I have an
sorbed so many blesslnas during my stay
in the city, but I remind you that we should
re iiKe tne pump wntcn not only sucks up
but also gives out. If you will cultivate the
virtues that I have mentioned you can
mnke a heaven on earth for yourselves
and for all those with whom you asso
ciate.
Today was Mr. Rockefellers last as
superintendent of the Sundsy school class
of which he hss charge during the summer.
He will return to New York City during
this week.

Constitution.
MUSKOGEE. I. T.. Oct. .-A call was
Issued today for the reconvening of the
constitutional convention at South Me-
Alester. October 18. by the chairman. Chief
Pleasant Porter. The call simply says the
corrected draft of the constitution Is to
be signed, but It Is understood that the
meeting Is primarily for the purpose of
eliminating the clause In the constitution
providing for the "open shop." to which
labor unions have so seriously objected.
The leaders of separate statehood admit
now that the clause is a mistake, which,
unless eliminated, will result In combined
opposition of organised labor and the de
feat of statehood. Labor leaders are jubi
lant over the turn affairs have taken, and
say that with the objectionable feature
out organised labor will heartily support
separata stats movement and proposed
legislation.

Society Formed to Promote t'nlon of
Episcopalian nnd Rnssian
Orgaalsntlons.
CONCORD, N. H.. Oct. $ -A number of
the Episcopal clergy of the diocese of New
Hampshire have made preliminary arrange
ments for the formation of an association
which will have for its ultimate object the

the outgrowth of the thanksgiving service
at Christ church. Portsmouth, which fol
lowed the signing of the treaty of peace
between Russia and Japan and at which
priests of the Episcopal and Russian
churches officiated.
The new organisation will follow the
linea of. the "Eastern Church association"
of the Church of England, and will have
branches In all dioceses of the Episcopal
church In this country If tha plans of the
promoters are successful. It la said that
within the last half dosen years the rela
tions between ths Russian and Episcopal
churches have been growing closer, but un
til the thanksgiving evensong held at Ports
mouth there had been no general participa
tion In service by both Russian and Episco
pal priests.

Culminated In Tragedy Over
the Bier When Mother
Dies.
HA8TINGS, Neb.. Oct. t.-(Speclal Tele
gram.) Over the dead body of his mother, ,
John Budnrk shot his sister, his brother
and his brother-in-law at an early hour
this morning. Miss Francis Budnek. aged
22, waa shot In the right hand. Jacob
Budnek, aged 62, shot above the right eye
and may die. Peter Snienll was shot
through the left lung, through the abdo
men. In the left thigh and through the
eft shoulder. He Is not expected to live
throughout the night.
The tragedy occurred In the death cham
ber at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Peter
Smeall, 1350 West Second street, where Mrs.
Mary Budnek, aged 62, died at 10:30 last
night. John Budnrk has been placed un
der arrest and Is now In the county Jail.
The tragedy was the culmination of a
family quarrel that had existed for several
years. The Budnek family are Polish
French and they have resided In Hastings
for twenty years. John Budnek, who com
mitted the deed, Is a stonemason by trade.
He Is 60 years old and a bachelor.
The real trouble began about a year ago
when Mrs. Peter Smeall came with her
husband from Beatrice to Hastings. They
took up their residence on South Hastings
avenue close to the home of Mrs. Smeall's
parents. Mr. and Mrs. Budnek. At that
time Mrs. Smeall's mother was In poor
health, so she was taken to the Smeall
home where she has remained ever since.
Mr. Budnek, who Is 85 years of age, was
left alone In his home. A family fight soon
followed which resulted In the arrest of
Joseph Budnek, a night policeman In Hast
ings, on a warrant sworn out by his sister,
Frances, charging him with assault to do
bodily Injury. The case was heard before
Police Judge Reynolds and the defendant
was cleared.
About two months ago another family
row occurred and Policeman Joseph Bud
nek was again put under arrest on com
plaint of his sister, Francis, who was stay
ing with her wot her at Mrs. Smeall's.
This case was heard before Justice of the
Police Morledge and the jury promptly
acquitted the defendant.
. Denies Knowledge ot Shooting. -x
"Apparently this" seemed to have quieted
the family trouble, aa they alt left the
court -room in good humor. A few dayi
later Mrs. Smeall took her father with
all his household goods up to her new
home on Second street, but he soon loft
there and went to the home of his other
daughter, Mrs. Dr. F. Naulteus, where he
has since remained. His sonv John, also
roomed at the Naulteus home.
John Budnek was Interviewed In his cell
this morning by a Bee representative. He
denied all knowledge of the tragedy. He
stated that he had taken but two drinks
Saturday night and had gone to his room
to retire about 11 o'clock when his slstpr,
Mrs. Naulteus, told him his mother was '
dead. He went up town and notified his
brother, Joseph, and then went alone to the
Smeall home. Gaining entrance through
the kitchen door he went to the death
chamber where the family was congre
gated about the corpse on a cooling board.
Going up to tho remains he placed his
hands un the corps said, "This Is my
mother," and began to cry. What followed,
he said, he did not know. He only knew
that he awakened In Jail this morning and
somehow realized that he had seen the
face of his dead mother. He said he could
not believo the story told hint of the
shooting.
Story of I ndertnker.
Edward Livingston, the undertaker, gave
the following account of the tragedy:
Mrs, M. Budnek died about 10:30 o'clock
last night and I was called to the Smeall
home to take charge of the remains. About
midnight the entire family came into Hie
bedroom to view the body, which was OB
the cooling board. YVhllo my brother and
I were still engaged in preparing the re
mains John Iiudnek came into the death
chamber from the parlor. He walked up
to the body and placing his hands on tha
lifeless limbs, said:
' 'This Is my mother.'
"I told him not to handle the corpse and
then he turned to me with a desperate
look in his eye. Francis Budnek waa
standing close by and said something In
a foreign tongue, whereat her brother John
struck her In the face with his fiat. Then,
stepping back, John drew his revolver and
began firing over the body of his dead
mother at his sister Francis,
"Mr. Smeall advanced to Interocede when
John turned the revolver on Smeall snd
shot him In the left breant. The two men
clinched and fell to the floor In the purlor.
Budnek was thrown on his back, but he re
talned the revolver und continued to shoot.
During the fray a lighted lamp was upset
from a stand and the parlor curtains lie.
came ignited. While I threw the lamp out
of the door my brother Walter managed
to take the revolver away from John, but
before I could return Budnek had drawn
another revolver and continued shooting.
We soon disarmed him and I pinioned him
to the floor while my brother ran to notify
the police and telephone for a physician."
Policeman Dycus was the first officer to
appear upon the scene. He found Mr. Liv
ingston holding John Budnek down on tha
psrlor floor. One glance in the death
chamber revealed to lilm a ghastly night.
In one corner of the room sat a man with
a nullet hole In his head snd blood stream
ing down his face; In another corner of the
room lay the body of a man suturamd with
his own life's Mood, und close Itesldl him
was the lifeless figure of a little old woman,
half concealed In a shroud. Hysterical
women wept and moaned, while Irout the
two wounded men un the floor Came

condition and was perfectly subdued lie
