Accompanying the President were
Mrs. Roosevelt and her maid; Surgeon

Bugle and Drum Sound Welcome.
President and Mrs. Roosevelt arrived
at the navy yard shortly before 4
o'clock, where they were met by Sec
retary Loeb, Captain Lentz, the com
mandant of the yard, and Captain A.
T. Lonp, of the Mayflower. A com
pany of marines and a detachment of
pallors were drawn up about the
wharf and, as the Presidential carriage
arrived, a welcome was sounded from
the bugler aboard the ship and from
a drummer in the marine ranks. For
a few moments the President and Mrs.
Roosevelt chatted with the navy of
ficials on the wharf and then, as the
band aboard the ship played "The Star
ppangled lianncr" and the bugle sound
ed another wclvome. they walked down
the gangplank aboard the vessel.
Here bad assembled to meet them.
Postmaster-General and Mrs. Cortel
you. Ambassador Jusserand and Mme.
Jusserand; who carried a large bunch
of flowers for Mrs. Roosevelt, and
James R. Garfield, the Commissioner of
Corporations. They remained with the
President for about 13 minutes, until
the order was given to start. Then a
United States flag: was run up the ves
sel's gaff, the gangplank was taken up,
the ship loosened from her moorings
and the trip to Panama was begun.
Shouts Joyous Goodbye.
As the vessel started, the President
appeared on deck and shouted a good
bye to the crowd which had assembled.
He appeared to be in particularly good
Pplrita and remained on deck until the
vessel was out of sight. As the ship
passed the lower end of the navy yard,

President Gompers and Vice-President
O'Connell, of the American Federation of
Labor. Mr. O'Connell talked with the
President today particularly about the
machinists, 400 of whom are now cm
ployed on the isthmus. Their arrange
ment into classes is different from that
in vogue in the United States, which com
plicates matters. It is also alleged that
the eight-hour law respecting this - class
of labor Is being violated and the
President was asked to take up this and
various other matters affecting the hous

Upon the head-waters of the Lickins

In the discussion. No man at the poll

father-in-law. George Wireman, started
on a hunt for Nero just as soon as be
heard of the murder.
Instead of finding Nero, he encount
ered Charles Howard. Nero's brother.
Before the latter could draw, Wireman
bad fired and dropped him mortally
In the meantime, friends of the Wire-man-Pinks
family were also scatter

a half mile from bis home late ,ln the
afternoon, as he was returning from
the election. One of the friends of the
victim had been posted by the road and
shot Nero from ambush, killing him.
The fourth killing was that of Wire

of Charles and Nero. Several friends
'of the Howards went to Wireman's
house, coaxed him to the door and then
emptied their rifles into him.
WOMAN CLUBBED TO DEATH
Brutal Kobbcr Takes Life for Small
STAFFORD SPRINGS. Conn.. Nov. 8.
Mrs. Henry William?, about 50 years old,
was found murdered in her home near
here this afternoon. Robbery apparently
was the motive and the murderer Is be
lieved to be a tramp.
The body of Mrs. Williams was found
lying near a stove on the fjoor of the
kitchen of her house, with the throat
cut. head battered and a towel twisted
around the neck. Near the body lay a
knife and a club. The woman died after
a hard struggle with her assailant, who,
it is thought, struck her down with a
club and then cut her throat, after which
the towel was wound about her neck.
Following the murder, the man made a
systematic search of the bouse for
money. The trunk in an upstairs room
was broken open and about $100 in money
taken from it. Part of this money later
was found on the lawn in front of the

Heavy cost of new mains makes It im
possible to reduce present water rates, un
less the charter shall be amended, so as
to have pipe extensions paid for out of

That the change would be practicable is
denied by few persons, but objection is
made that it would retard the growth of
the suburbs and therefore the growth of

rts necessary also to supply consumers in
Summer, when large supplies are used.
Last Summer the system was not equal
to the demand and there was a call for
a second pipe line from Bull Run and for
additional reservoirs, to cost $2,500,000.
This was answered by the assertion that
the trouble was not smallness of the sup
ply tube from Bull Run, but of the dis
tributing pipes which net the city.
One Pipe Costs $250,000.
More money has been spent this year
for new distributing mains than in any
similar period in the history of the city,
the largest expenditure being for the
Highland pipe line, from Mount Tabor,
between 10 and 11 miles long, costing
about T200.000. This new water duct is
paid for, not by residents in the part of
the city benefited, but by all consumers
in the city, most of whom will receive no
Pipe extensions add greatly to the value
of the land benefited, and families
ing on cheap outlying lots demand the

high-priced inside property. The Water
Department does not, however, lay subur

the outlay shall be forthcoming. In nu

NEW YORK, Nov. 8. (Special.) Tues
day's election in New York State, while
it defeated W. R. Hearst and repudiated
Hearstism, may land Hearst in the
Mayor's chair in Greater New York. The
possibility of this extraordinary outcome
of the state campaign has aroused in
tense interest in political circles here to
day. William S. Jackson, of Buffalo, the
Democratic candidate for Attorney Gen
eral, who appears to have been elected by
about 10,000 plurality over Attorney Gen
eral Mayer, may make easy the way for
a recount of the ballots cast at the may
oralty election last Fall and thereby set
tle the contention of Hearst that he de
ffated McClellan and was counted out. It
seems to be certain that Hearst will take
a hand in forcing action, if possible, just
as soon as he gets his second wind if
not in person, then through his agents,
who will now be free to look after that
Hughes Will Apply Probe.
Hearst's plans for the immediate fu
ture embrace a trip to California for re
cuperative purposes. He may remain on
the coast until near holiday time, when
he will return Kast and perhaps go to
Washington, his term as Congressman
extending to March 4 next. After that he
contemplates a trip to Europe.
. The full force of the turning over of
the state administration with the' excep
tion of the governorship to the Demo
crats has scarcely been realized as yet
by the people generally. The politicians
appreciate the significance of it, how
ever. The Governor, as a matter of
course, has a vast amount of patronage,
but Hughes stands in the peculiar posi
tion of owing his election- to no Interest
and to no set of bosses. He has pledged
himself to investigate the State Bank
ing Department, to probe the reasons for
the inefficiency of the State Railroad
Commission, to carry out in the Insur-
LIKE FOR HITCHCOCK
ance Department the reforms recom
mended by the Armstrong committee.
But the Secretary of State also controls
a vast amount of patronage, all of which
seems destined to go to Democratic hands
lor the first time in a decade. A major
ity of the clerks in the department are
protected by the civil service law, but
two deputies and a confidential clerk are
not. Kach of the two deputies is a Re
publican county leader, one in Schoharie
and the other Greene, and they will, of
course, have to go. Then this office han
dles the public printing, a tremendous
source of revenue to up-state papers, a
large share of which can now be diverted
to Democratic papers.
The Attorney-General has even more
patronage to dispose of. He has a half
dozen deputies, a New York bureau with
its deputies and a number of other good
places. Some" of these are now held by
proniinent politicians. Horace Maguire,
of Rochester, one of Aluridge's lieuten
ants, and Alexander T. Mason, a New
York district leader, will lose their places,
as will Odell's former secretary, James G.
Graham. There are, besides innumerable
special sources of patronage in the em
ployment of extra counsel, which are fed
out all over the slate and now go to
Canal Fund Goes to Democrats.
The State Kr.gineer and Surveyor, the
State Treasurer and the Comptroller all
dispense a considerable amount of spe
cial patronage and all these . places are
now held by Republican leaders, who will
have to walk the plank. The State Kngi
neer has a certain measure of control over
the new $!01,00i000 barge canal. In addi
tion, a number of state boards pass into
Democratic control, all of which have
more or less patronage. Among these are
the Canal Fund Commission, the State
Canvassers, the State Board of Equaliza
tion and several other minor boardsi in
each case made up of the state officers
under the Governor.
In each ca.se, moreover, the number of
little jobs, the .special counsel, special
clerks and other similar little sources of
graft for the "faithful" swell the patron
age value of all these offices. This
patronage is duly apportioned among the
various Republican leaders in the state,
all of whom will suffer.
Chance to Build New Machine.
Kxcept in the Attorney General's office,
where John Cuneen enjoyed a brief
Democratic interregnum, these offices
have all been held by Republicans so long
that they have come to have the appear
ance of being life places. Moreover, the
upstate Democrat will have the first real
bit of patronage that ha3 ccmo to him
in many years. This xtn assist in .he
rebuilding of an upi'ate Demi-.rati? or
ganization, as it will now be possible to
take care of a inmbor of country leaders.

NKW YORK, Nov. 8. Justice Uowllns
in tiie New York State Supreme Court
today heard arguments of counsel fop
the international policyholders' committen
and the New York Life Insurance Com
pany on an attempt by a policyholder to
prevent the trustees of the company from
expending its funds in conducting a cam
paign to elect the administration ticket
of trustees. Stephen Farrclly, of this
city, was the policyholder who applied to
the courts for an injunction to restrain
an alleged waste of t ho company's funds
and an acocunting of the funds already
alleged to have been expended in the
Serateli Out Opposition Ticket.
It is alleged in tho complaint that the
defendants caused to be printed 500,000
ballots similar to the oflicial ballot, placed
them in turn in envelopes and sent them
to the agents of the company with In
structions to place on each ballot the
number of a policy and to cross off the
names of the candidates of the Interna
tional . committee's ticket. It is charged
that this was done to secure the return
of ballots in advance of the issue of
the oilicial ballot: that the postage
stamps were s0 placed as to identify' tha
envelopes when returned to the company,
and that advances of many thousands
of dollars were made to the agents to
compensate them for; their efforts to elect
the administration ticket.
At Folic holders' Expense.
Samuel Untermyer. counsel for the In
ternational policyholders' committee, ap
peared for .Mr. Karrelly. He said that
tho trustees of the New York L.ifo In
surance Company were taking advantage
of loopholes in the new insurance, law to
defeat the object for which the law was
passed. The defendants, he said, care
fully omitted to say that the ticket not
scratched was tho administration ticket.
He charged that the work of transcribing
the numbers of policies was done by of
ficials of the company and at the expense
of tho policyholders and thai it was
done to steal the election. Mr. Unter
myer displayed 26 of the ballots of which
he complained and said that tens of
thousands of policyholders had apiealed
to the committee to ask the courts to
prevent a misuse of their funds.
Defense of tlie Company.
James H. Mcintosh, attorney for the
Mew York Uife Insurance Company, said
the electioneering campaign was perfectly
fair. Tho agents informed each policy
holder that there were two tickets in
tho Held, and asked him to vote the ad
ministration ticket and that the lattor
was sent at the expense of the agent.
Mr. Mcintosh then submitted affidavits
from President A. B. Orr and Vice-President
Kingsley, denying that the directors
dad interfered in any way with the elec
tion of a ticket by the policyholders.
The affidavit of Mr. Kingsley ad
mitted that 800,000 official statements
and return envelopes had been printed
and forwarded to the company's agents,
but merely for too use of such policy
holders as might desire it and to
facilitate their voting.
An affidavit from the comptroller of
the New York L.ife, from which coun
sel read extracts, declared that no
portion of the expense of sending- out
tickets and tho envelopes complained
of was borne by tho company.
Agents Fay Expenses.
Agency Inspector Dussel In an affi
davit said iie had spent between $700
and $S0O in endeavoring to get the.
administration ticket elected, but it
was out of his own pocket.
Tne affidavits of the cashiers In tha
different offices throughout tho coun
try were next submitted. They said
they were all working in support of
the administration ticket, because they
believed in it and that no money had
been paid out by them for the pur
pose of conducting the election cam
