New York Voted $50,000,000
and Then Forgot All
WASTE SHOCKS TAMMANY
Why "Was "Sot Money Tut to Good
Use? Says Leader There Ar6
Any Number of Good
Ways to Apply It.
NEW YORK, Jan. 22. (Special.) If you
stopped the average New Yorker on the
street and told him the state had voted
to expend $50,000,000 on good roads, and
that he had voted for It or against it
last election, he would probably tell you
you were crazy. But it Is a fact, never
theless! And it shows what a rich state
this is, and how little the average man
worries about a trifling $50,000,000.
Iast November every voter, in addition
to the official ballots, was given an
amendment ticket, containing a list of
nine amendments to the constitution
upon which he was requested to vote
"yes" or "no." Every one of these sub
jects, as the law required, had previously
been passed by two successive Legisla
tures, and then submitted for a vote of
But do you think anybody knew any
thing about it? Of course noL, They
were too busy making money and enjoy
ing themselves. True, the laboring peo
ple of the state knew that one umond
ment affected their Interests, and shouted.
"Vote for amendment 'No. 7," and every
body did. They also voted for the other
amendments. What they arc is a mys
tery ycu But later on of course we will
hear from them.
Here Is the first news that anybody
here got on the subject, and strange to
say, no metropolitan paper printed more
than a few lines about It:
How to Divide the Biff Pic.t
"The executive committee of the Super
visors' Annual Highway Convention,
which met at Albany on Tuesday last to
lay out and recommend the legislation
necessary to advance the interest of the
highway improvement of the state, has
prepared its report. Tills executive com
mittee Is composed of two delegates from
each Judicial district of the state. Thero
were present W. Pierrepont White, chair
man, Utica; Dr. Edward J. Bedell. Al

The proposition that brouKht up the Rreat
cBt discussion was the equitable distribution
of .the $50,000,000 which has Just been voted
by the people of -the State of New York to be
spent on the Improvement of the highways.
The most equitable distribution and tho one
recommended by the committee Is that there
should first be deducted from the $."0,000,000
the sum of $2.ri00.00O to be used from time
to time to build connecting links between
one county system and another. Then the
committje recommended that the $-17,500,000
should be apportioned to the counties by di
viding that cum Into halves and apportion
ing $23,700,000 among, the counties on the
basis of their respective mileage and then
apportioning the other $23,700,000 among the
counties on the basis of their respective
assessed valuation, after excluding the
assessed -valuation -of all Incorporated cities
and villages,,, because under the present
statute they are not permitted to share In
the highway improvement- 'These two sums
are then added, together and the amount Is
the recommended equitable apportionment to
The executive committee desires to have
apportioned to each county its equitable sum
in money in order that each county may be
permitted .to. build the class of roads best
suited to Its needs. Some counties prerer
expensive roads, other counties cheap roads.
This question Is a local one and should be
settled iQcaJly, . TJie committee felt that the
question of equitable distribution was of such
Importance that it should have the fullest
publicity .throughout tho state. In order that
any inequalities should be heard of and ad
justed before" the" " final' distribution of the
funds was. made by the-Legislature, and it
will therefore print and send Its figures
and table's out as soon as they can be
prepared. . . .
The report ambles on at great length,
but does not say a great deal, except to
emphasize "the fact that there is $50,000,
000 to be given away.
Tampiany Leader Shocked.
I spoke to a Tammany district leader
on the subject today. He was shocked,
"Do you mean to toll me," he gasped,
""that they are really going to throw
away $30,000,000 on roads?. Why. ifs ab
surd! My. district Is full of, men," he con
tinued, '"who haven't seen 50 cents In
months. Why don't they do something
sensible with all that money?"
Then he asked who was on the commit
tee from New lork. I told him about
Albert R..Shattuck, and, although he ad
mitted he had never seen or heard of Mr
Shattuck in his life, he started to round
-up that gentleman in a vain hope that
some of the enormous pile might be dl
verted to "good uses."
I spoke to persons whom I met dur
ing the day on this subject, and only one
of thenf had the faintest glimmering idea
of what was being done.
This wag Harry El wood MacNichol, s
former officer; of the United States-Navy.
He lives in Rye, N. Y.
"Oh, yes, I've hcara about it," he said.
"But 1 thought it was only $25,000,000.

VICTORIA. B. G, Jan. 24. in an inter
view at Bamflcld Creek tonight. Boatswain
McCarthy 'told the first detailed story of
the wreck. He said the steamer Valencia
had been going by dead reckoning 'and
overran her distance. Soundings had been
made three and four times an hour. The
steamer struck at 11:45 P. M. Monday,
about midship, the first officer, quarter
master and a seaman engaged In sound

Shortly before the steamer struck she
was going at half Fpeed. Captain John
son immediately shouted "Hard a-s tar-
board" to the quartermaster, and gave or
ders to sound the bilges, which was done.
She did not appear then to be making
much water. ,
The captain then called to the engineer
and asked4if the steamer was making
much water. Before the engineer could
reply, firemen began clambering up from
the llreroom. telling the engineer on the
companion she was filling.
Captain Johnson rang for full speed
astern and made for the beach. The pro
peller had only made a few revolutions,
when the vessel struck and listed to nort.
Captain Johnson was on the bridge when
the vessel struck, with the second officer.
He ran down and gave orders to have two
of the seven boats lowered to the saloon
Instantly tho passengers crowded to the
rail and overcrowded 'the boats. During
the excitement, they cut whatever lines
they could lay their hands on. The davits
broke about the same time the lines were
out, and both boats were smashed at the
sides of the vessel, capsizing the nasscn-
gcrs-and crew in them. The crew threw
lines out. and by means of Jacob's ladders
succeeded in getting about six of the pas
sengers thrown out of these boats on
board again. The boats when lost were
mostly filled with women and children.
One very sad Incident was witnessed. A
man and woman with a little child tried
to get Into ono boat. The father succeed
ed, and the mother tried to pass the
child, but a wave struck her and washed
tho child from her arms. The child was
lost bofore her eyes One llforaft was

safety responded. The captain instructed
them to pull along the beach and find a
place to get ashore. They landed at 1:10
P. M. Tuesday, and made Cn Roain

Cape Beale they tried to get back to the
vessel by the beach, but could not do so.
During tho ecltcment Captain Johnson
was very cool and calm, and all the crew
weroat their stations. Tho rescued sail

IiOOKED IiIKE A SIGNAL.
Glasses Make Out Something Flut
tering Aboard the Valencia.
VICTORIA, B. C. Jan. 24. (153 P. M.)
The correspondent of the Associated
Press on board the steamer Salvor has
wired from Bta.ni field as follows:
"The steamer Valencia was located by
the steamer Queen at 9 Al M. today on
Point Klanaway, about five miles from
Cape Beale. The tug Czar went In to
investigate and reported that the steamer
was ashore stern first, with her decks
swept clear, with the exception of a small
part of the house and lur two masts still
standing. No persons could be seen alive
on board. In the rigging of the foremast
was what the captain of the Czar took
to be a signal, nlthough he was unable to
say whether it was a piece of sail or a
human belnp clinging to the rigging.
"The Salvor and the tug Czar then left
for "Bamflcld Creek, the Queen standing
by her companion liner.
"When tho Salvor left the scene there
was a heavy swell from the southwest
and the rain was falling in torrents. The
Queen reported having heard three ,gun
snots snortly before the arrival of the
Salvor, but nothing of any living person
was to brf'scen."

Captain Troup Decides Any Attempt
to Aid From the Seaward Is
Impossible in Storm.
VICTORIA. B. C Jan. 24. A dis
patch from a correspondent on the
Salvor, dated Bamfeld, says:
It was about noon or a little after
when those on the bridge of the Salvor
sighted the tug Czar fighting hard
against the heavy prevailing sea. Soon
those on the Salvor could easily see
the unfortunate Valencia. It was a
bleak scene. Amid the surf which
dashed furiously against the rocks
could be seen the dim outline of the
Owing to the cloudiness of the sky
and blinding wind and rain It was im
possible to make much out of the sit
uation, even with powerful glasses.
But occasionally when tho white waves
made a suitable background, what was
above the water could be made out
with comparative clearness. There
were two masts quite plainly outlined
and the funnel still Intact.
Being high tide the deck was com
pletely submerged with the exception
of a small portion of the bow. As
far as could be seen there was nobody
on the decks or In tho rigging. Every
thing seemed perfectly bare She was
lying astern toward the beach with the
seas dnshlng over the boat and side.
Judging roughly, she must be about
150 feet from shore, perhaps less.
The Czar got much closer than tho
Salvor, and returning reported to Cap
tain Troup on the former vessel.
"Did you notice anyone standing to
the rigging?" shouted the- captain.
"No," was the reply from the tug
skipper. "But there is something fly
ing from the masts. I can't Just make
out what it is.".
After slight hesitation. Captain
Troup asked whether it could possibly
be any of the passengers who, as a last
resort, might bo clinging desperately
to the mast in the hope of being picked
up. Those on the . tug-did riot think
suoh a thing could be posslb'le,' in
clining tod the opinion that It was
simply aplcce of sail or something of
that nature. Nor does It seem posslblo
to believe that there could be anything
alive on the ship In her present condi
tion. The appearance of the Valencia pre
sents, as she lies hopelessly aground
with the water covering everything-but
masts and funnel, make it Impossible
to conceive of anyone remaining with
her since the occurrence of the disaster
at Midnight Monday.
This is the conclusion come - to by
the seamen on the steamer Salvor.
They stated that it was highly improb
able any rescuing could be attempted.
Even if anyone was then on the vessel
it would have been perilous indeed
for the three steamers then available,
the Salvor, the Queen and the Czar,
with tholr combined crews, to have got
sufficicnty close to pass a line to' the
deck of the wreck. As Captain Troup
."Rescue from seaward Is impossible.
If there Is anyone still on board, aid
must come from the shore."

refused point-blank to discuss the affair
yesterday, but he Is willing to have the

KING OF ALL DISEASES
To Contagious Blood Poison rightfully belongs the name Elinc: of
Diseases. It is the most powerful of
part of the body and wrecking and ruining the lives of those unfortunate
enough to contract it. When the first sign appears in the form of an insig
nificant sore or ulcer, few persons realize that the deadly virus has entered
the blood; but so potent is the poison that one drop will vitiate and pollute
the purest and healthiest blood, and in a short time the degrading and hor
rible symptoms begin to appear. The mouth and throat ulcerate, the glands
in the neck and groins swell, the hair and eye-brows fall out, copper-colored
spots appear on the body, and in the latter stages of the disease the poison
even works down and destroys the bones. No other disease is so highly
contagious, and many have contracted it and suffered its awful consequences
through a friendly hand-shake, handling the clothing of one afflicted with
it, or drinking from the same vessel. S. S. S., The King of Blood Purifiers,
is the only cure for Contagious Blood Poison. It goes down into the cir
culation and forces out every particle
