WILLIAMS OF .
Career of New immigration Com
missioner at New York, r
SILENT, BUT KEEPS IN ACTION
Held Present Office Once Before, Step
ping Out Suddenly, tn the Roose
velt Administration Son of Yale and
Mountain Climber, With Good Re
Mr.illiam Williams, the new commis
sioner of immigration for the port of
New York, returns to that post to
complete the work of reorganization
and reconstruction begun by him seven
years ago after his appointment by
former President Roosevelt. Then
Williams remained less than three
years in ' office, resigning abruptly
when "housecleaning" on Ellis island
was in full swing. No explanation
was forthcoming at Washington, and
none could be obtained at that time
from the retiring commissioner.
His action was as unexpected by his
subordinates as by the public, and the
day that he left' the island every man
and woman and boy on the govern
ment payroll, although many of them
had felt the silent man's sharp disci
pline, was in the big hall to shake
hands and say goodby.
Just to show what they thought of
him the employees produced a huge
silver loving cup, which ' cost somfr
thing like $700, and a testimonial con
taining a picture of Ellis island and
When asked the reason for such a
demonstration in honor of a man who
had caused the upheaval and disturb
ance of time honored customs, one of
the men said.
"Every employee on the island knew
'he could get a square deal from the
Williams' zeal in going to the bot
tom of things In the Immigration bu
reau had uncovered much graft and
corruption. Then, suddenly, he stepped
down and out. -
Evidently President Taft thinks that
this man and his ideas on reform are
not so visionary as the advisers of
.President Roosevelt would have had
him believe. Williams was ' prevailed
upon to take up his work again solely
upon the grounds that It was a public
duty which he could not decline. He
did decline at first, but the argument
of the president finally prevailed, and
the quiet man of Ellis island goes back
to that important station 'satisfied that
this time he will have a free hand in
the task before him.
A. man with independent means and
a comfortable law practice, Williams
is under obligation to no one, and
every success he has attained since
leaving New London,' Conn., the place
of his birth, has been won by sheer
force of energy and ability.
His family put him through the pub
lic schools and then sent him Jo Ger
many, where for five years he was a
student at the German gymnasium In
Wiesbaden, and he entered Yale with
the class of '84, being graduated and
taking a course iu law at Harvard.
He began practice in New York in the
fall of 1SSS and has been a resident of
that city ever since. .
In 1802-3 Williams acted as junior
counsel for the United States in the
Bering sea arbitration in Paris. Five
years later, when war with Spain was
declared, he left his law practice and
went out as a private with the war
troop of Squadron A. His energy and
ability were soon rewarded by promo
tion, and -he went into the quarter
master's department with the rank of
major, taking a troopship to Porto
Rico. This was the end of his mili
tary service, typhoid bringing him
down and making him an invalid un
til the following year, when he went
back to the practice of law.
President Roosevelt in ' 1902 asked
him to go to Ellis island, and he ac
cepted. . In 1905 he resigned.
The president publicly commended
him for his administration, Yale uni
versity conferred the honorary degree
of master of arts upon him, and he re
tired to private life. Since then he
has practiced law and climbed moun
tains, with considerable distinction In
both, although the public knows little
' As a mountain climber he has scaled
the highest peaks-in Switzerland, .has
qualified for and been elected to the
English Alpine club and was complet
ing plans to tackle some of the highest
peaks in eastern Europe when the
present situation confronted him.
Such, in brief, is the career of a man
upon whom considerable public atten
tion will be focused in the next four
years. No port of entry into the Unit
ed States bears more closely upon the
many grave problems arising from the
tide of alien races daily breaking
against the country's gates
With Williams when be retired from
office, went many, who had helped him
In sweeping the island clean, who had
started the work of building a larger
and more sanitary Immigration' sta
tion, who had helped in the reorgan
ization of the system of handling Ig
norant aliens who had substituted
tumane and honest dealings in place
f brutal and mercenary transactions
that once existed and who had suc
ceeded in driving grafters from the
service. ' . .
Williams is' not a plodder! He acts,
and he keeps In action, accepting full
and complete responsibility for every
thing he does and, demanding obedi
ence, loyalty and a maximum -work
ing time from every subordinate. New
Institution Planned For Training
Young Men to Bs Managers.' : '
With the object of raising the stand
ard of street railway employees Oren
Root, Jr., general manager of the Met
ropolitan Street Railway company in
New York, has perfected plans for the
establishment of a training school in'
which graduates of colleges and scien
tific schools, will be fitted for the tech
nical and practical work of the street
car business. The company will .de
frayal! the expenses of the school and
will pay the students' living wages
during the course of two years. Dur
ing the first year the student will be
paid $15 a week. -The second year
men will receive $20 a week. To give
him a general idea of the street rail
way business he will be assigned to
duty in the maintenance of way, the
electrical, the equipment and the trans
portation departments, spending three
months in each department.
"It is m'y intention," said Mr. Root,
"to establish a practical training school
for young men, particularly graduates
of high schools, manual training
schools, colleges and universities, who
have had more or less technical train
ing and who intend to enter upon the
vocation of operating street railroads.
It is the aim to make the conditions
advantageous to the young man who.
has an inclination to enter upon work
of this character.
"Such a man under the proposed
plan will have an opportunity to ac
quaint himself with the details of the
work, while receiving at the same
time a salary which will, with strict
economy, enable him to be self sup
porting. He may thus determine for
himself whether he is fitted and has a
liking for employment of this charac
ter. -On the other hand, the Metro
politan Street Railway company will
profit by the experiment In that It
will be possible to test the. capacity,
ability and adaptability of applicants,
who will constitute a body of candi
dates from whom men may be chosen
when it becomes necessary to fill va
cancies In the regular operating staff."
THE "PANTALOON GOWN."
Newest Feminine Creation Parts Above

"Pantaloon gowns" will be seen In
Fifth avenue and Broadway. New
York, not later than the first week in
June, and the new thriller in feminine
wearing apparel sets the directoire
gown upon a pedestal of modesty.
It is made of light olive chiffon
broadcloth, with a train fifty-six inches
In length, trimmed with French cord
embroidery, embroidered ecrux chan
tilly lace and black satin. Twelve
dozen self colored buttons are used.
It has the directoire back, long effect,

She moves it is quite different. What
has seemed a skirt parts just above the
knees, and regular trousers come into
view trousers, just trousers. . They
make no pretense of being anything
else. ' ' ,
They measure thirty-six inches
around the bottom and reach to the
shoe soles. A seam that goes up the
front of the skirt from the knees to
the waist gives an all pantaloon ap
pearance to the front of the garment.
No underskirts can be worn with
this costume, and the lingerie bills of
those who adopt it will be a negligible

A deed entered at Somerset, Pa., the
other day conveys 3,492 acres of de
nuded timberland in Lincoln, Jeffer
son and Jenner townships to the com
monwealth of Pennsylvania. The land
purchased will be replanted with tim
ber and will become part of the pro
posed state reserve forests. Negotia
tions are pending for additional thou

is said the reserve to be established in
this section will assume gigantic pro

The "Lone Star" to the "Red Planet."
. From somewhere down here in Texas
We shall yell hello to Mars
And shall flash a joyous greeting
From the old earth to the stars.
And we'll tell them of the wonders
We've accomplished, and we'll trace
All our deeds in lightning flashes '
Throughout interstellar space.
We will tell them how Wright brothers
Have at last learned how to flit
Like bald eagles, and we'll show them
The United States is it.
And we'll tell of other wonders
- That it has been ours to do
And of other dreams we're dreaming
That will soon be coming true.
And we'll send a message for thezn.
Message for each Martian chap, '
, Simply telling them it'B Texas,
That bright place upon the map
- That they're looking at, and tell' them
; We have watermelons here
And the best of red strawberries,
Red and luscious all the year. ,
And we'll signal them with cabbage
In symmetrical designs
Or tomatoes tall and growing
Or with watermelon vines. . r '
' Wo have gardens big enough to
Be seen through the miles of space.
We don't need a mile wide mirror.
We'll grow signals on the place.
When we show them miles of cabbaga,
' Green nd growing, and a bunch
Of sleek cattle 'twill be asking
Them to come across to lunch. '
When we show them miles of melons
- Round and hefty on the vine .
They will know they will be welcome
If they'll step across to dine.
Oh, they'll signal Mars from Texas:
They will be compelled to do that.
For It la a cinch that Texas
Is the spot they're looking at.
And the . effort would be wasted
If 'twere put forth otherwhere.-
"Texas" will be the first signal
That goes leaping through the air.
