Hearing Thirty Dollars- Per

Washington, May 1. Postmaster
General Payne is liable to be asked
to resign from the cabinet.
, Senator Lodge from , Massachu
setts, one of. the coterie of republi
can senators who is here to hold a
conference with other leaders of the
senate on fioancial legislation mat
ters, and who is recognized as the
president's closest .personal friend,
waxed wroth to-night on x learning
that Postmaster-General Payne had
defended Mr, Machen, "superintend
ent of free delivery., " ? ! '
He intimated strongly that Mr.
Macben's' discharge had been order
ed before bis departure end - that
Unless7 that was an accomplished
fact before his return,' there wonld
D4 trouble and the ' postmaster-general
might be asked to resign.-
Washington, A pi il 29. Those of
ficials who are. thoroughly informed
of the conditions of affairs in the
postoffioe department see " the , be
ginnings very soon of the investiga
tion of the bureau chiefs.
It is laid that Postmaster-General
Payne today received this terse
"You are the postmaster-general.
I hold jou responsible.
(Signed) "ROOSEVELT." "
The only self-posseesed and con
fident man in the building on Penn
sylvania avenue is First Assistant
Postmaster General v Wynne. t To
day hevis quoted a.a eaying: -.- '
- "I have recommended the imme
diate dismissal from ; the govern
ment service of A. W. Machen, su
perintendent of free delivery, and
in this action I have the support
and countenance of Mr. Bristow,
the fourth assistant postmaster-general,
who has been delegated to
make the official investigations.
"In my opinion nothing will be
done until the return to Washing
ton of President Roosevelt on June
6th, when not only Machen, but a
dozen other bureau chiefs will be
summarily dismissed or relegated
to the oblivion of retirement. :-
- New York, April 29. Stung, to
defiance by the inference that a
truthful answer to a question asked
him as a witnesa would tend to in
criminate, President Baer of the
Reading Company and bead of the
coal trusty sprang to his feet today
while under examination in the
hearing of the complaint of Wil
liam Randolph Hearst before the
Interstate Commerce Commission,
and in a burst of temper ; poured
forth a flood of the vituperation
that has made bim feared by every
man in his employ and by. every
independent operator he has ever
crushed beneath the weight of the
trust fabric be has reared.
Those who knew President Baer
of the Reading Company, the Phil
adelphia and Reading Coal and
Iron Company, the Philadelphia
Railway Company, the ; Central
Railroad of New Jersey and more
minor companies than he can re
member, know that . he is irascible
and intolerant of opposition. When
confronted coldly and fearlessly to
day by a lawyer that had nothing
to gain from him and nothing . to
fear, President Baer's restraint on
his temper gave way completely:
Striding back and forth on the
dais upon, which the witness chair
is placed, he swung his long arms
in whirling gesticulations and,
shouting his words in a voice hoarse
with rage, denounced Lawyer Cla
ence J. Sbearn. It was a spectacle
that the commission, a grave and
serious body, had rarely beenealled
on to witness. It was the outpour
ing of the feeling of one holding
power "by divine right," and bit
terly resenting the temerity of any
one not a member of the' trust at
tempting to beard its master. .
It was not surprising that Mr.
Baer lost hi& temper, for Mr. Sbearn,
coldly and unfeelingly, ae a surgeon
twists and turns a probe, sought af
ter the secrets of the coal trust and
found them. Bit by bit. he forced
admissions from Mr. Baer that add
ed proof Upon proof of all the charg
es made by Mr. Hearst. Upon the
record of the hearing he spread the
statements of Mr. Baer.
That he fixed prices at which
coal was sold and fixed tnem arbi
trarily; that by the first of May be
will add 10 cents a ton to the price
of coal and gradually work it up to
$5 a, ton wholesale; that there is no
competition between the coal-carrying
roads in the anthracite fields.
Vienna, May 1. Horrible bru
talities are reported to have)ccurr
ed during the recent riots at Kis-
cheneff. Many women and chil
dren were victims of the mob, which
included the better classes of the
inhabitants. Some of the victims
were thrown from windows to the
pavements. The rioters also pil
laged the synagogues and killed the
caretakers. The. damage done to
property is . estimated at several
million rubles. .. .
The Jews who escaped from Kis-
chneff are seeking refuge at Odeeea
and elsewhere. :

- St. Louis,' April 28. A morrent
before be became insane, D. S. Ran-
sbaw, telegraph operator, at Poag,
111., a little station on the Wabash,
turned on. the jred light which
stopped the fast Chicago Express
and very probably saved the train
and all on board from destruction.
- Ranshaw was a good operator,
but his health failed, he became
partially paralyzed and was remov
ed from the Litchfield office to
Poag, where the work is lighter.
: He complained of a pain in his
head but he told the day operator
he was sure he ' could get through
the night all right. He attended to
bis duties, received and relayed
train' orders Bafely, but, realizing
that his mind was goiog, set the
danger signal for the express.
Amazed-at the red light -Engineer
John Dongan, of the Chicago
express, leaped from his cab. , The
conductor and brakeman joined
him, and they found Ranshaw in a
state of complete mental collapse.
Another operator was found, after
half an hour's delay, and after
much precautionary telegraphing
the express was allowed to proceed.
' Ranshaw was taken to hie home
at Litchfield. Three men were re
quired to get him on the train.
