He inveighed against men in "rebel"

Bailey Trifle Heated.
The resolution was reached in its
regular order. Mr. Heyburn was prompt
to raise an objection, and Mr. Bank
head Just as alert in moving the con
sideration regardless of the objection.
It immediately was evident that the
objection had aroused some feeling,
for, with flushed face and animated
voice. Mr. Bailey, who sat near Bank
head, declared that if the resolution
was ruled out of order no other busi
ness could be transacted.
The Bankbead motion being- undebat
able, the Senate Immediately proceeded
to an aye and no vote on the question
as to whether the resolution should be
taken up. This was decided in the af

Mr. Heyburn then spoke for probably
40 minutes, and went over many of
the Issues of the war. He declared
himself as much a patriot now as he
had been In 1863-4. There were no
material Interruptions, but all Senators
listened with evident Interest.
The Southern Senators held hurried
consultation while "the Idaho Senator
was proceeding, and decided to make
no reply. Accordingly, when Mr. Hey

themselves with allowing the question
to go to a vote after the laconic re
mark by Mr. Bankhead.
It so chanced that Mr. Ileyburn's col
league. Senator Borah, of Idaho, was
one of the first Republicans to be heard
in the roll call. Without a twitch of
countenance he voted in favor of the
adoption of the resolution against
which Mr. Heyburn had so recently

Mr. Heyburn ' then proceeded to say
that while he did not want to open the
wounds of the war. he still thought the

BOSTON, Feb. 7. Resentment of the
attentions of a civilian to his fiancee.
Miss Dorothy Hesler, of Evanston, 111.,
was the basis' of the defense of Dr. A. S.
Rohnet, Past Assistant Surgeon, U. S. N.,
at his court-martial trial today, resulting
from the episode at the naval dance at
the Charlestown Navy-Yard on December
Dr. Robnett's trial, which was on
charges of conduct unbecoming a gentle
man and of profanity, lasted only four
hours. Much of the interest had been
robbed by the testimony at the trial of
Paymaster George P. Auld last week, on
charges growing out of the same inci
dent. Robnett Admits One Charge.
The trial was simplified by the admis
sion by Dr. Robnett that he did use ob
jectionable language when he called Dr.
E. S. Cowles. the ejected civilian, to ac
count for his attitude toward Miss Hes
ler. Dr. Cowles, who was again on the
stand, denied that he attempted to make
clandestine appointments with the young
woman, and in this he was substantiated
by his -wife. She also supported him in
regard to Robnett's words over the tele
phone, which formed one of the charges'.
Cowles Changes Testimony.
Dr. Cowles explained his effort to ob
tain an appointment with Miss Hesler at
an elevated station by saying the young
woman had been, Invited to dine at the
Cowles house and Mrs. Cowles had sug
gested that the doctor meet her on her
way from Maiden.
When Major Leonard asked Dr. Cowles
why he did not offer tho same explanation
at the Auld trial last week, the Judge
Advocate objected and the testimony was
suspended while arguments were made
on the question.
Mrs. Cowles also explained the elevated
station incident with Mlsa Hesler, saying
that she had invfted that young lady to
dine and told her husband that he ought
to escort her from the station to their
home, as Miss Hesler did not know the
Auld Acted Alone.
Paymaster Auld said that Dr. Robnett
did not know his purpose when he Called
Dr. Cowles from the dance and that he
used Dr. Robnett's name without the lat
Then Dr. Robnett took the stand in his
own defense. He admitted that he asked
Dr. Cowles by telephone if he had not re

young -woman, thought to be Miss
Beatrice R. Snyder, of Buffalo, com
mitted suicide today by wading into the
river just above Prospect Point and
going over the American falls.
As her body swept over the brink: of
the cataract she turned her face toward
her -would-be rescuers and smiled a
farewell to them.
A park policeman paid scant atten

the river it was too late to Intercept
Without a moment's hesitation she
waded Into the stream. She turned

were calling to her to stop, and con
tinued to move rapidly into deep water.
In an instant she was whisked from
her feet and carried rapidly toward the
brink of the falls.
On the banks was found a handbag
containing this note:
"Mama and papa, may youi both for

It Is the understanding that none of the
borough presidents, the controller or the
Mayor, are expected to cripple their
working forces. But the officials are
satisfied that they will be able to care
for the interests of the city as well, if
not better than their predecessors, who
had assistants galore.
The men who will be turned out. oc
cupy what is known as the small places,
the salaries ranging at from $1000 to
$1500 a year. It is therefore plain that
from 1O00 to 1500 men are scheduled to
lose their Jobs.
' Employes Under Civil Sevice.
All of these employes are protected by
cK'il service rules. In other words, they
can only be removed on charges and after
a hearing, and even then the action of
the bureau chief is subject to review by
the courts' of the state.
Most of these workers are active Tam

them were named under the &poils sys

class to make their Jobs life positions.
But this economy wave is too much for

his force as often as he pleases. To pre
vent fraud or favoritism. . however, a
man ousted because of a cut in the force,
retains his right to be re-employed if
his place is filled within six months. After
that he is out for good.
As the new city officials are sincere in
their work, this proviso has not created
any great public rejoicing among the men
who have lost their comfortable berths.
It is the best thing for the taxpayers,
and incidentally the worst thing in the
world for Tammany. It Is upon thescr
